Ancient Rome: From Slaveholder to Supreme Emperor - Chapter 20
“Hi Caesar, I didn’t expect to see you here …”
Not long after sitting down, two women came over. One was 36-year-old and the other was 14-year-old. The older women were very happy to see Caesar, slightly bent down and pinched Caesar’s face.
“Hello aunt, Hello sister …”
Caesar was so speechless that he broke open her palm and greeted them.
The wife of Rome’s military reformer Mallory ? I didn’t expect that she was so young!
However, Mallory was married in his forties, and it was normal for her wife to be so young. After all, some women of this era got married at a very young age.
Ye Tian was slightly surprised.
Mallory, by now, should be an old man in his sixties. At this time he should be lonely in politics, but even so, in the Senate Mallory he still had a pivotal position.
After all, he had made great military achievements for the Roman Republic, and achieved great achievements. He was once re-elected five times, elected as a conservator six times, and was called father by Roman soldiers.
It was conceivable that his prestige among the Roman soldiers was very high.
Although now starting to get old and frustrated, the skinny camel was bigger than a horse.
However, in his later years Mallory was not very lucky. In the past few years, he had started to be frustrated. The failure of change years ago had disappointed the people, and the drawbacks of military reform had also begun to appear in recent years. During the war, the soldiers began to lose their jobs, so his popularity among the soldiers began to be worse than before.
In order to increase his popularity, he proposed to provide soldiers with colonies and provide pensions, but it was strongly opposed by the Senate.
However, now was the ‘Allied War Period’, and Mallory was active on the political stage and directing the war outside again.
From the future, Ye Tian knew that Mallory was really old. No matter how tossing, he was unable to change it; he was destined to start to be lonely.
In another two years, he would have a civil war with his biggest competitor, the tyrant Sura, but he would be defeated and forced to leave the country.
Ye Tian used to consider whether to cooperate with Mallory or not, but after thinking twice about it, he forgot it. Mallory was exhausted, and he would be unlucky if he touched him.
Even in the last light of his life, his potential erupted and he regained power, it would just be the lighting before death and die in a short time afterwards.
“Aurelia, who is this strong young man by your side?”
When passing by Aurelia, Mallory’s wife saw an unfamiliar young man sitting next to Aurelia, and couldn’t help asking. There was some doubt in her eyes.
After all, Caesar’s father was away all the year round, and she was worried that Aurelia could not stand the loneliness, and did something to be sorry for Caesar’s father.
“Julia, take care of yourself, this is His Excellency Satan, Caesar’s sword instructor!”
Aurelia said lightly, but after hearing that Ye Tian’s brow wrinkled slightly. When did he become Caesar’s sword instructor?
Was she going to make his identity a reality in the presence of these nobles?
Sure enough, she was a thoughtful woman, and probably guessed that Ye Tian could not promise to become Caesar’s instructor, so she said Ye Tian’s identity in front of outsiders.
She should guess that Ye Tian would not refute her face, otherwise he would really offend her, and it would be similar to offending both the Caesars and Aurelius Cotta.
It was not a good thing for a citizen, a slave owner to offend a super aristocracy.
That was fine if the Caesars and Mallory had always been smooth sailing, but Ye Tian knows that in a few years, the Caesars family would be left with only Caesar, and after the death of Mallory, and Sura coming to power again and became a tyrant, all of the Party of Mallory would be killed.
Even Aurelius Cotta could not shelter Caesar.
In history, Caesar escaped by accident, avoiding the danger of exile and murder, but even so, he had been left for many years.
When Ye Tian was about to speak, Aurelia grabbed his palm in private, the meaning was obvious.
“Beautiful and noble Mrs. Yulia, I am honored to meet you, I think this should be the guidance of the gods!”
Ye Tian opened his mouth and was posed by Aurelia. Although a little unhappy, Ye Tian did not refute her in person. After all, if he wanted to hold her thigh tight, a life-saving grace would not be possible.
Although tied to Caesar, he may be a little unfavorable for the future, but worse things happened a few years later.
After several years of planning, if he did not have a certain power, it could only be regarded as his incompetence and deserved to be killed.
Ye Tian’s smile was very sunny, but his courage grew bigger, and he grabbed Aurelia’s palm and squeezed it gently, letting her body tremble slightly, but her face was calm.
“Caesar’s sword instructor? Is he really old enough to be competent?”
Ye Tian’s compliment really made Yulia happy, but she was still suspicious.
“Aunt, the teacher is definitely the strongest swordsman. His strength cannot be measured by his age!”
Caesar replied quickly, and he was also very likely to take the opportunity to make and called Ye Tian teacher directly. After being glared at by Ye Tian, he could not help but vomit his tongue and hide his head.
Ye Tian’s image of simply killing the enemy came to his mind.
“I’m going to see it another day, see you later …”
A faint smile appeared on Yulia’s face and he took a serious look at Ye Tian, seemed like he was trying to remember him, so he took his daughter and sat down not far from him.
After Yulia left, Aurelia closed Ye Tian’s ear and said softly.
“Um … it seems I misunderstood …”
Ye Tian let her palm go, smiled, and said innocently.
“What’s the feeling of touching my hand?”
Aurelia’s face turned red for a moment, cursing Ye Tian for shamelessly touching her, and then asked him with a smile.
“I love it so much that I can’t bear to part with it and could play it for all year”
Ye Tian told the truth.
