Chapter 58. Warriors Must Have Courage! You Can Die, But You Should Not Be Afraid!
After arranging things in his territory, Lynn took Lucy on a walk through the city streets. Along their way, they encountered a merchant caravan that had arrived from Garson City that had an abundance of animal skins, so Lynn bought two of their most expensive cloaks for himself and Lucy. Lucy’s eyes narrowed with pleasure as she smiled. She really liked the cloak. In fact, she liked it even more because it was given to her by Lynn.
When she was not living with Lynn, Theresa would only give her five gold coins every month for living expenses and Lucy would buy a cloak with the money. However, she did not mention it this year as she knew that Lynn was working hard and she did not want to ask Theresa for money. Due to this, she had given up quietly and stopped buying the cloaks.
Lynn actually knew about her sacrifice but there was no way for him to buy her the clothing before. The territory was still developing and every area needed money, but now Lynn had more than one thousand gold coins. Additionally, the flame mushrooms were about to mature. Lynn would be selling eighteen hundred potions this time, which would bring in nine hundred gold. The most expensive cloak was nothing but pocket change to Lynn. The two cloaks totalled one hundred gold and were considered the best that money could buy. Lucy was a little relieved.
“I remember when I was fourteen years old Linze bought a cloak worth thirty gold coins and showed it off in front of you for a long time,” Lucy said.
When she had heard about this, she became livid. At that time, she was saving up her money and decided to spend thirty golds to buy a cloak for Lynn. Lynn smiled at her. He was neither angry or proud since Linze was nowhere as decent as Lynn. He only got the cloak because Patriarch Kyle was partial to Linze and gave him the chance to show off his wealth. Was there any merit in crushing Linze? That was the mindset Lynn had.
While walking on the street, Lynn had good luck and found a different caravan that was selling Blood Wolves. For ten gold coins, he would gain four hundred predators. Lynn bought them all as he had accumulated sixty five hundred System points over the past three days. After he occupied Grape, the amount of points he gained every day increased once more. Everyday, Lynn now received two thousand four hundred points.
In actuality, the points that Lynn gained from the System for ruling over Grape was not as much compared to owning Maple Leaf. This was because the territory was naturally worse than the Maple Leaf’s market. Nonetheless, Lynn was satisfied with the increase in his System points.
Now that Lynn had an abundance of gold, raising an army would not be a problem since he had a steady supply of points. He just needed to buy enough beasts so that he could quickly expand his legion.
Once Lynn bought the Blood Wolves, Lynn asked the caravan to leave early to help send the beasts to Fenglin. As Lynn had paid the full amount, the caravan was more than happy to deliver the goods. Lynn had walked around for about two hours, so he and Lucy had also become a little tired too. Lynn held her hand and they both returned to the castle. The supplies had been packed when Lynn remembered another matter. He needed to leave Rau a hundred gold coins.
“Send someone to Frost Maple CIty to buy five pairs of Philosopher Stones to convey a message while giving two stones to Earl Theresa. You also keep two and give the rest to me.”
Lucy suddenly remembered something and brought it to Lynn’s attention.
“I just received a letter from Theresa this morning. She said that she has been busy recently and had to go out. I do not know if she will be available or not.”
“What is the matter?”
Lucy shook her head.
“She did not say, but when she does not explicitly point it out it is usually something big. There may be a war.”
Lynn fell deep into thought.
“Is there something wrong?” Lucy asked.
Lynn glanced around to see if everyone present were people he trusted before whispering.
“This matter may have something to do with the Marquis of Tellen. I got some news in Grape that the marquis had something to do with our war.”
Lucy covered her mouth in surprise. The attendants were also shocked. Lynn only shook his head.
“With things like these, you cannot guess the result. Rau, tell Count Theresa anyways and keep her safe.”
“Yes,” Rau nodded.
Buno’s face was serious and Lucy was nervous. The malice from the marquis was too heavy a matter for them, so Lynn addressed the issue.
“It is best not to fear a war. Whatever you feel you should do, you should do it. If you really want to fight, I shall take the lead and compete with the marquis! We can kill Death himself! We really can! So, what are you afraid of?”
Buno’s eyes gradually became full of bloodlust at Lynn’s words.
“Master Lynn is right! This is no big deal! He can kill me, but he can never make me afraid of him!”
“I will do my best to purchase the necessary supplies,” Rau said firmly. “If there is a war, I will rush to be your guard and die for you!”
Lucy looked at Lynn’s back and felt relief rush over her.
“I have gradually mastered my mana. If I really need to fight, I will do so beside you. If I die, I will die right beside you Lynn,’’ Lucy said in a gentle but determined voice.
Lynn patted all of the attendants on the shoulder.
“Remember this courage. People of Maple Leaf can die, but they should never be afraid!”
After saying this, Lynn turned and left. The attendants all kept their courage, and Rau stayed behind to negotiate with the merchants to buy more supplies. Three days passed before Lynn arrived back to Fenglin. He had accumulated System points for the past few days and had reached 11,400 points. The Blood Wolves had been delivered, so Lynn spent all of the points that day.
There were no half beasts in Fenglin as they all had stayed behind in Maple Leaf, but in less than an hour Lynn had more than one hundred twenty six warriors who had evolved three times. The number of soldiers in his legion had reached four hundred!
The scale of power was gradually growing. If Lynn decided to fight Klizi right then, he would have crushed his forces without as many friendly casualties. Four hundred fighters was not enough to Lynn as he had plans to expand his forces to two thousand, all of whom would be rank four warriors. After each soldier was fully equipped, they would be an invincible army that could defeat twenty thousand conventional soldiers. It would not matter if they were outnumbered ten to one.
