Ancient Rome: From Slaveholder to Supreme Emperor - Chapter 50
Max Allred was a well-known rich man.
He used to be a glorious knight, and he also had an excellent business mind. By right of selling the slaves who he got from the wars, he had earned the first bucket of gold.
With this money and his wisdom, he quickly accumulated a lot of wealth. And now, he was going to enter the door of being a noble.
Even if he couldn’t achieve it, he at least wanted his descendant to .
And his trump cards were his wealth and his beautiful daughter.
At present, his target was the young child Caesar of the Julius family.
Max Allred’s house was quite big and luxurious. Although it could not match with the real Patricians’, it was still much better than a lot of ordinary rich men.
“Your lordship, what can I do for you?”
Just when Ye Tian alone came to the gate of Allred’s house, an old slave quickly came to him and asked respectfully.
That’s because Ye Tian’s gorgeous clothes made this old slave in the first eyes feel that this person in front of him was surely a distinguished guest.
“Yes. Please send my words to your owner that Satan,Ye Tian wants to see him!”
Ye Tian smiled and said softly. Now his every movement was full of infectivity because of his high charm points.
“I am pleased to serve you, your lordship Satan…”
The old slave replied respectfully. Such a young Patrician was really rare that it was filled with infectivity, not any haughty expression!!!
“Tuk, Tuk, Tuk, Tuk…”
At this moment, a sound of footsteps came, Ye Tian looked back and couldn’t help but be a little surprised – it was Crassus! Crassus also saw Ye Tian and he was also a little surprised, he didn’t expect that Ye Tian came here a step earlier than him.
“The defeat of last night made him can’t keep calm continually?”
Ye Tian thought in his mind.
“Lord Crassus, what a coincidence! Is this arranged by the Gods?”
Ye Tian ebullient smiled and greeted Crassus in a very warm manner.
“I think so, otherwise, we wouldn’t be so predestined!”
Crassus laughed back at Ye Tian and also looked extremely bright.
But he hated this kind of smile on Ye Tian’s face, because he knew very well how terrible and lethal this kind of smile on Ye Tian’s face was.
“I think we should cheer for the gods!”
Ye Tian said softly.
“Yes, I think so, it’s my honor…”
Crassus replied with a smile.
The two of them were so tacit, no one mentioned what had happened last night! But at the same time, they were wary of each other furtively.
“Lord Satan, I didn’t expect that you are so impatient for that piece of land?”
Crassus asked Ye Tian with a foxy smile.
“Distinguished Crassus! In fact, your appearance also surprised me. At first, I thought you will show your magic wisdom after I take action again!!!”
Ye Tian shook his head and said slowly.
“By the way, can I ask what’s your trump card this time?”
Crassuss narrowed eyes slightly and asked Ye Tian with a foxy smile.
“Your lordship. Because of your appearance, I have to improve my price. Can I think that you’re adding salt to my wound?”
Ye Tian narrowed eyes slightly and replied lightly.
“I am deeply apologetic for the harm I brought to you by accident. However, the harm is mutual and I don’t expect that you value that land so much …”
Crassus smiled and he had finally vented a little of his frustration. At least, he could make a little trouble for Ye Tian.
Ye Tian chuckled and said nothing more. Anyway, one day this guy would cry. Ye Tian thought in his mind .
“Lord Crassus, Lord Satan! Today, it must be the lucky goddess sprinkling her light on my house. Otherwise, how could I make you two come to my house by virtue of my identity…”
A rich-looking and middle-aged man ran out of the gate in a hurry. His face was filled with reverence and awe, but more was of surprise.
One was a new noble who was favored and supported by the Julius family, another was from an old noble family. They visited his house at the same time, the more Max felt was fearful besides his surprise.
“Mr. Max, I think also. Last night, I received the instruction of the goddess of luck, so my today’s visit is just to introduce Mrs.Aurelia because I have heard that you want to marry your daughter to my student, Caesar?”
Ye Tian opened his mouth in advance to Crassus.
He directly showed his trump card, which blew both Max and Crassus in a loud bang.
Ye Tian didn’t say that he wanted to buy Max’s land first, but directly revealed his identity, Caesar’s teacher instead. And then he offered his price that he would introduce Max to Mrs Aurelia and Caesar.
Crassus didn’t expect that Ye Tian was so direct and blocked all of his means in his way.
What did Max want the most at the moment?
Maxt had accumulated enough wealth, and selling a piece of land won’t bring him too much profit.
Right now, what he most wanted was marrying his daughter to Julius’ family, and opening the door to be a noble.
Ye Tian’s words indicated a lot and directly hit the vital part of Crassus.
Crassus was very shrewd and he naturally understood the meaning of Ye Tian’s words. Therefore, he was almost choked with anger.
What a fox!!! This was a typical example of a fox exploiting a tiger’s power!
But, it was undoubtedly a heavy bomb for Crassus!
After all, Ye Tian caught the key point of Max besides exploiting the ‘tiger’s power’!
The smile on Ye Tian’s face was more bright. Especially when he saw the sullen expression on Crassus’s face, he was quite happy.
Originally, if there wasn’t Crassus, he didn’t need trouble and just showed out he was a Patrician, gave Max a reasonable price, Max would definitely sell him that piece of land.
But, Crassus not only intervened this thing, but also aimed at him. If he didn’t borrow Aurelia and Caesar’s name and caught the key point of Max, Max would definitely choose Crassus between them.
Ye Tian also knew that he just made an empty promise. He would definitely introduce Max to Aurelia and Caesar, but as for whether Max could fulfill his wish or not, that’s dependent on himself.
Ye Tian felt that’s impossible because Aurelia was different from Caesar’s father. In history, no one knew what kind of medicine Caesar’s father had taken wrong, he unexpectedly let Caesar marry a rich man’s daughter without any political background.
Aurelia won’t definitely allow Caesar to take such a path. Judging from her performance, she attached great importance to Caesar’s political future.
