Ancient Rome: From Slaveholder to Supreme Emperor - Chapter 62
The attendants immediately pulled out their short swords and were ready to attack Ye Tian at any time.
“Pompey, you finally have the courage to stand out. But I think that you’d better pay off the debt that you owe me now， otherwise, I’ll apply to the Senate to start the most ancient duel with you!”
Ye Tian sneered.
Pompey scolded YeTian in his heart.
“Damn Satan! You don’t have any nobleman’s gentility. How can a vulgar man like you become a Patrician?You’re actually like a slut, who is in debt in the street!”
Velina was going crazy。Ye Tian forced a debt on her in the street and even humiliated her. How could she survive in the noble women’s circle if this matter spread out.
“My lady Verina, let your son pay me back first, then I will talk to you about the manners and gentility of the nobility.”
Ye Tian sneered, “You still don’t pay back the money you own, how could you talk to me about gentlemen?”
“How much does he owe you?”
Though Vierina was so furious, she tried to calm herself and asked Ye Tian.
“No more, no less, just one talentum.”
Ye Tian said softly.
“What? A Talentum? Are you crazy? How can my son owe you so much money?You must be a fraud!”
Hearing that her son owed so much money, Velina was completely out of control.What a huge fortune it was !
“Madame Verina,you are a member of the great Pompey’s family, if you really want to owe me for a Talentum, I have no choice and I will not pray to the gods of mercy, but I believe that Roman justice is just and fair. Besides, Pompey, you are grown up, when will you be able to keep your word like a real man!”
Ye Tian shook his head and said lightly.
“Satan, don’t violate Pompey’s name. I will repay the money that I owe you. But it’s not a small number. I hope you can give me some time!”
Seeing more and more people slowly approaching to watch the scene of the bustle, Pompey was a little anxious so he said in a deep voice to Ye Tian.
Pompey was a great family. He did not want his whole family to have a reputation for being shameless, unfaithful and dishonest by his own fault.
“I’ll give you five days and I hope I shall see the shining gold, otherwise, the glory of Pompey’s family won’t shock me!”
Ye Tian said lightly,and then mounted his horse
“Childe Pompey, Madam Velina, I’m sorry to offend you today. Please forgive me for my rudeness… but you two are really like a couple.”
After saying that, Ye Tian left on his horse.
“You offend me like that! In the name of Pompey, I have to send him to Nemesis!”
Looking at the figure of Ye Tian leaving unrestrained, Pompey and his mother were full of hatred on their faces and cursed fiercely.
Ye Tian had hurt them a lot today.
As for Ye Tian, he was very happy.
e came to his own piece of land, knocked on the appeasement of the first few houses, then showed them his land deed and asked them to move away .
However, that caused them to cry and plead.
Because they were all poor civilians. If they had money, they would not rent an apartment in such a remote place.
The civilians’ life in Rome was really hard, because more and more lands were occupied by slaveholders, Patricians or rich people, while whether they were Patricians, slaveholder or rich people, they all had free slaves as laborers.
The livelihood of the common people became more and more difficult, and even some people had no choice but to sell their children as slaves in order to maintain the expenses at home.
However, reality was cruel.
In the end, out of sympathy, Ye Tian did not want to drive innocent people to the wall. He gave every family a lot of money as the demolition fee for later generations.Finally,he persuaded them.
“We can start the construction tomorrow!”
Thinking of this, Ye Tian felt a little heroic.
No matter what era it was, without money, nothing could be done.
“Master, I found a lot of craftsmen in the market, and they didn’t ask for a high price…”
When he came back home, Angela came up to YeTian. Although she was tired, it could be seen that she was very happy.
She was very happy to work for Ye Tian.
“Thank you, Angela. Thank God for sending me such a capable girl.”
Ye Tian smiled and kissed her on the forehead.
“Master, you’re right.Philip sent you 35 slaves today, and I made my own decision to pay the money…”
Diana also came to ask for praise.
“Good job, Diana. I’m so lucky to have you by my side.”
Ye Tian pulled Diana into his arms and kissed her as a reward,causing Diana’s face turned red because she felt that Ye Tian’s mushroom had stood up.
Ye Tian also had no choice because Diana’s body was too attractive,besides, his physical quality was too strong.
Not so far away,Susan looked admiringly at Diana and Angela, and then looking at her budding body, was entangled and in pain.
“Let’s go. I’ll go check on the slaves…”
With this, Ye Tian walked toward the courtyard.
“Dear Master, please allow me to pay my respects to you!”
When the slave soldier who was taking care of these slaves saw Ye Tian, he quickly saluted respectfully. His gaze at Ye Tian was full of fanaticism.
“I accept your glory!”
Ye Tian nodded lightly and then scanned the thirty-five slaves in the yard.
