101 Episode 23. Magic Stone Tank (4)
Rockefeller’s words had a strong confidence attached to them.
What were you thinking when you said that?
‘What do you think?’
“What did you mean by that?”
Rockefeller only smiled at the question.
“You just have to watch it. How do I deal with it?”
You can watch… … .
Strong doubts arose, but when Rockefeller spoke so confidently that Ricardo did not ask any more questions, and decided to keep an eye on him.
But in reality, it seemed impossible.
I don’t know if there is even a family member’s guardian.
‘Do you believe in the Sinclair family?’
I had an idea like that, but I wasn’t sure.
Because only he knew what Rockefeller was thinking.
‘You’ll find out if you watch it. It won’t take that long anyway.’
24. Birth of a Family (1)
“… … Did he become the guild leader? It also took over the position that had been held by the Lyon family all along, right?”
The lord of Montefeltro, Chester, was stunned by the unexpected news.
‘How could that be? This doesn’t make sense. How did a mere commoner become the head of the Lyon Guild?’
“under… … Wouldn’t that make sense? The seat has been in the Lyon family for a long time. But how… … .”
On the other hand, the Overseer, who delivered the news, was quite calm.
When he first heard the news, he had strong doubts just like the lord.
It was not something that could happen easily, so he was suspicious of what he had heard.
However, when he realized that the person in question was the Rockefeller who made the lord here in half, he began to think that something like that was possible.
And there was no way that the news from Lyon was wrong, so he quickly accepted it.
“Isn’t he capable enough? To be honest, even the Lord… … .”
The following words would be disrespectful, so the Overseer decided not to continue the next words.
However, Yeongju, who knew roughly what he was trying to say, wrinkled his expression and spit out a pitiful cough.
“Wow! Anyway, that’s what happened. I don’t quite understand it, but there’s no way this could be a lie.”
As the lord waved the letter in his hand and spoke, the Overseer, who was alone with him, continued.
“Well, that’s what happened there. To know for sure, you have to go to Lyon in person, but do you really need to do that? If it’s true anyway, isn’t it a good thing for us?”
Yeongju frowned openly.
“How good is that?”
“Honestly, wouldn’t it be better if the head of the Lyon Guild was the one who had the right to this land?”
“No, this one.”
The number of people who didn’t even talk to each other until they lost their power, when they became half lords, talked back a lot.
So, I thought about showing off the bad guys, but I was hesitant to do so because I was not already a person who paid him a salary.
‘Damn it. I don’t have the power to do anything. Then if things go wrong, you won’t listen to me at all… … 🥳!’
Whether or not he knew what he meant, the Overseer continued to say what he had to say.
“Aren’t you supposed to give him a congratulatory message for what happened?”
“What? A congratulatory message?”
“Yes, Lord, it seems that he is not very happy with the fact that he has become the Lyon guildmaster.”
His actions and actions were all flowing into the Los Medici family due to the Overseer acting as a franchisor.
Therefore, the lord, who had to be careful about his words and actions, concealed his expression and showed a smile that did not suit him.
“No, it’s not like that. Still, it’s where my daughter got married, how can I do that? It was just that the news was so sudden and unbelievable.”
“Then, of course, you should send a congratulatory message. He will surely like it if the Lord sends you a congratulatory message.”
He felt like he wanted to overturn the desk in front of him.
He didn’t like the news that the guy who made him half-half was doing well this time.
‘What a freeze to death congratulations message! In a state where even pouring a curse would not be enough.’
I thought so, but there was my own daughter who was married in that family, so I did something to stay still.
‘Damn it… … How did you get involved with those guys?’
“Wow! I’ll have to ask the sheriff about it after a while. I don’t know how to write.”
The Overseer suddenly touched my chin and began to mutter.
“Come to think of it, if you are the head of the Lyon guild, the title of Viscount has been granted by the Imperial Family since ancient times… … If this happens, we may have to call him Prince Rockefeller in the future.”
“What? Rockefeller Ball?”
From the lord’s point of view, he was not very happy, but it was an undeniable fact that the head of the Lyon Guild was in a higher position than himself.
Overseas, who was looking at Rockefeller high from the beginning, continued my words without much inspiration.
“Yes, since you have ascended to the position of Viscount, wouldn’t it be polite to call you by that title?”
“under… … Until yesterday, I was a commoner. Are you a son-in-law now?”
“I was a commoner, but didn’t I have a pretty good position here?”
Then Yeongju responded with a snort.
“What location! I was just a banco trader playing with money.”
“It is not. The location was definitely there. He is the one who took almost all of the rights of this land by the end of the day, would it make sense that such a person does not have a position?”
“Yeah, there was a location just like you said.”
Or an unlucky location.
The words of the Overseer continued.
“Even if I don’t know, you will soon be appointed by the Imperial Family. Since you are the head of a Banco Federation, won’t the imperial family treat you like that?”
Youngjoo had no choice but to tilt his head as if he was not happy with those words.
‘Still, I was a commoner… … .’
Since ancient times, it has been a custom to give the position of Viscount to the Lyon Guild Chief.
The problem was that the opponent was not from an aristocratic family, but was just a commoner Naburin.
“By the way, if you were a commoner, would you suddenly give me the title of Viscount?”
Youngjoo tilted his head.
This was more what the nobles thought in the first place rather than not liking Rockefeller.
‘It’s all gone, so I don’t really like it.’
A sudden rise in the status of commoners.
This was something the nobles were most reluctant to do.
“I don’t know. Of course, the position of the guild leader is not low.”
It was a look that even oversea could relate to.
It was very unusual for a commoner to suddenly become a Viscount.
“I don’t know.”
Still, the Overseer was quite confident.
This is because the guild leader customarily brought the title of Viscount, and he thought that even if a commoner sat there, nothing would change.
“If the position of the Lyon Guild is low, there is no possibility of becoming like the lord. In the first place, it is impossible to ignore the head of a guild union in an imperial family where money is scarce.”
The words of the Overseer continued.
“And most of the banco vendors are from commoners. There are no nobles here. Nevertheless, the appointment of their head as Viscount is meaningful in its own way. So, my opinion is a little different from that of the Lord.”
The Overseer also made sense, and the lord was nodding his head.
Even though it was just a gathering of banco traders, they could not ignore their power if they were kneading gold coins of the Empire.
“You are right. but… … It’s not an easy place. So even the imperial family can’t just ignore it.”
Then Yeongju thought like this.
What the hell did that snarky child do to sit there?
‘You must have done some sort of fix as if you brought me down. I don’t know exactly what kind of trick they did.’
Overseer gave an unexpected word to such a lord.
“More than that, congratulations.”
The lord expressed his doubts at the unexpected celebration.
“What do you mean?”
“In a way, doesn’t the Lord have a relationship with the author?”
Young-ju was a baron.
A slightly higher position than the article below it.
Therefore, the original lord Chester’s goal was to marry his daughter into a higher family than himself.
However, it happened unexpectedly, so the Overseer congratulated him.
“… … .”
To the lord who spared no words, the Overseer continued his words.
“Isn’t it the lord’s dream to marry a young lady to a higher family than the lord’s?”
“… … .”
“I would like to congratulate you for achieving this unexpectedly.”
Young-ju, who was sitting in front of the desk, closed his eyes.
There was nothing wrong with Overseer’s words, but something felt strange.
Perhaps it’s hard to believe that Rockefeller and his family suddenly became Viscounts.
‘that is… … Will that happen?’
Still, I didn’t feel well.
“Aren’t you very happy?”
“What do you mean?”
“Your expression says so.”
“No. Not because of that, but because I have a lot to think about these days.”
It’s the feeling of a half lord. It wasn’t that the Overseer didn’t know, but I didn’t have to worry about it, so I ignored it.
Then the Overseer remembered something else and called the lord.
“Young lord. It’s more of a bizarre thing these days.”
When another story was about to come out, the lord revealed his doubts.
“Are you serious?”
“Yes, have you toured the messy estate with me before?”
After the Cataclysm, Montefeltro Youngjien began to appear different from before.
The topography had changed, but there was something more surprising than that.
“Are you talking about gold ore that has been coming out lately?”
“Yes, Lord, don’t you feel strange?
The Overseer pulled out a shiny stone from his bosom.
This time, it was a gold ore found again.
“This has been discovered recently. So one thing I’m suspicious of… … .”
The lord could roughly predict what the Overseer would say.
“Is there a gold vein here?”
“Yes, Lord, didn’t you think of that?”
“It could be something. In the past, it was said that dwarves mined gold here.”
In the first place, there was nothing that the lord would like to hear that gold veins were found in his own estate in a state where the rights of the land had passed.
What good would it be to have such a job in the yard where he was already receiving a salary and working as a permanent resident?
There was only one place in the world that would have liked it.
The place that took the right of the territory.
The Los Medici family.
No, it was the only place that would become a family now.
“But even if I had it, it wouldn’t do me any good. And it’s not good for you either. It just annoys me.”
At those words, Overseer had a negative thought.
“It is not. Why is that bad? If the manor gets rich because of that, won’t our position in charge of this place rise as well?”
Depending on the importance of the territory, the owner of the territory could be a baron or a higher title than that.
“Do you think I, who have had my limbs cut off, would like to have gold veins coming out of it?”
“Hopefully, you may be given the title of Count. After all, are you not the nominal owner of this estate?”
“… … .”
“There is nothing wrong with us just because we have gold veins. Rather, it will be a good thing.”
Still, Yeongju was unwilling.
“It seems you don’t know. The golden land is a very difficult place for a lord like me to occupy.”
The young man’s words continued.
“A land like that can be safe only if a powerful person owns it. Otherwise, it will naturally be taken away by someone else.”
Is gold coming from the realm?
A small amount of gold would of course be a good thing, but exceeding that amount could be a disaster rather than a blessing.
“Do you know about blood gold?”
