The Founder of the Great Financial Family 31

Episode 31 09. The Brothers were Brave (3)

After hearing the names of the two brothers, Set learned that the two children were commoners.

‘Los Medici… … You must be a commoner.’

“But you guys… … .”

Set with a shaky tail reminded him of a boy he met by chance in Banco.

Because the faces of Andrew and Joshua overlapped Rockefeller to some extent.

‘Oh, please. Could it be?’

“not. Anyway, let’s go ahead. Then go over there Revan will be waiting there.”


The two brothers, who answered loudly, headed to the place set pointed to, where they encountered the chef uncle with a wooden prosthetic leg on one leg in the kitchen.


In the past, he was also a mercenary who roamed the battlefield, but after losing one of his legs in a battle with an ogre, he turned to a cook who served his colleagues’ meals.

It was very large for a person without one leg, giving the two children a great sense of intimidation.

“Are you guys? From today onwards, the children will bring food from the market.”


The brothers’ voices shouting in unison were quite loud, but Revan opened his eyes and looked at the two brothers with suspicion.

He was too young to run errands, and it was his first time, so he couldn’t believe it.

But what about it?

It was a desperate need for someone to bring food on behalf of the busy mercenaries.

‘I don’t think I’m going to cheat just by looking at the face.’

When asked to buy good ingredients, there were some people who unexpectedly bought bad ingredients and filled their stomachs with the rest of the money.

For that reason, I had my colleagues supply the food, but seeing the children who came this time, I thought that Levan might have done better.

I thought they would be naive as children.

“you. If you say you’re going to run an errand and run away later, you know that these guys are going to catch up with a group then, right?”

Revan issued a threat from the start with a scary face, but it was a sound that the two brothers, who were already excited about making money, could not hear it.

“I am not cheating! Can you tell me where we live? Then will you trust me?”

“Trust me! I am sure I will do well!”

Rather, when he showed a more ambitious appearance, Revan asked with a slightly different expression than before.

“But it is. What are you so excited about?”

“Well, you can make money!”

“Of course it’s exciting! If you do your job well, you can earn 1 shilling a day!”

Was a shilling such a great amount of money?

Of course, it was not too little money as it was about the daily wage of a rural worker.

However, 1 shilling was not a lot of money for him, who had been a mercenary for a long time.

He lost one leg and was responsible for the meals of his colleagues, but he was still paid similarly to his colleagues, and the mercenaries’ work was difficult and very dangerous, so the pay was quite salty.

“One shilling would be too much for you guys. I get it. First of all, please tell me the ingredients to buy today.”

As Levan spoke, the third Joshua took out a small notepad and a portable quill from home.

They were all belongings from his father.

“Can I buy something?”

Seeing this, Revan gave a slightly surprised expression.

“you… … Do you know how to write?”

“yes! It’s written, of course.”

It was quite surprising to have a child who could read and write on the edge of the Empire.

Because even the grown-ups didn’t know about writing.

This was especially true for him, who firmly believes in the strange myth that ignorance of writing is the only way to become brave.

“I don’t need to memorize it, so that’s good. Then tell me about the ingredients to buy.”

Revan immediately told me what ingredients to use starting this evening, and Joshua wrote them down well.

“Food ingredients can be expensive, so you have to bring them with good and fresh ingredients. Whether it’s because of yesterday’s important guests coming in and taking great care.”

Andrew raised his doubts.

“Who is here?”

“A wizard joined this subjugation. What is his orc shaman?”

“Are you a wizard? Is that real?”

For rural children, the object of interest as much as a sword-wielding mercenary was the existence of a wizard, whom it is difficult to see once in a lifetime.

“Then where is the wizard?”

When Andrew asked with bright eyes, Revan waved his hand first.

They were also valuable guests, so they couldn’t annoy them by telling them about it.

“no. They are high-ranking people, so can you guys come and annoy me? Just know that there is.”

Hearing those words, Joshua, who was with him, also had his eyes shining brightly.

“Wow, great! Andrew, did you know there are wizards here?”

“No, I didn’t know! how do you know that There were no rumors.”

Levan had no choice but to laugh at the two children, who were talking excitedly as if they had discovered something great.

“Anyway, move quickly. In order to bring all the ingredients with such a small body, I have to go back and forth two or three times a day if I can’t.”


After receiving money, the two brothers left the mercenary camp and headed straight for the market.

Although the road to the market was long, the distance between the mercenary camp and the market was not a big problem for the two brothers, who were excited about making money.

The two brothers, who arrived at the village market excitedly, started buying the ingredients that Revan had mentioned, and after buying enough ingredients they could afford, they headed straight to the mercenary camp.

But before he could even leave the market, the third Joshua called up the second, who was ahead of him.

“Brother Andrew!”


“Wait a minute. I have something to say.”

“What do you want to say?”

Joshua, who put the ingredients on the floor for a moment, continued.

“I just thought. we are there Shall we get a little out of here?”

“You want to steal it? What are you talking about?”

“that is… … I’m trying to move everything, so it’s a little difficult. It’s just that when I think about it, even if I take a few out of it, I don’t think there will be any.”

Then the second Andrew, in a sharp voice, urged Joshua.

“no! Then you are cheating!”

“It is, but… … .”

Joshua, who had a shaky tail, began to persuade Andrew once again.

“Even if you get a few out of here, you won’t even get a peek.”

“Because I can’t! you’re not saying that We made a promise to those men. I will never cheat.”

“Are you going to bring all of this? Then you’ll have to pay a little bit more. I mean, this is hard.”

“You’ve already paid for your hard work.”

“You could get more.”

“Are you really going to do that?”

“Andrew, think a little differently. We don’t have to bring it all like an idiot?”

Second Andrew did not like the immorality of the third Joshua, and Joshua, on the other hand, seemed frustrated with his second brother, who was trying to be too honest.

“Anyway, even if I steal a little from here, those people won’t know. And if we take a few pieces from here, we can have a more full meal for our family in the evening. You know Andrew too, right? We have so many mouths that we are always hungry at dinner.”

“I still don’t do that.”

“So you came here?”

Rockefeller saw his two younger brothers visiting him.

Two younger brothers were arguing over who was right on an errand and stopped by Carter Banco, where the eldest was, to find a quick answer.

Before coming to Banco, the two had a conversation like this.

“It’s near the market anyway, so let’s go to Banco and ask Rockefeller. Brother Rockefeller will tell you who is right.”

“Ok, fine. If Rockefeller tells me I’m wrong, I won’t force him any more. If Rockefeller hyung takes my side instead, then Andrew hyung won’t even say anything?”

“Yeah, do it. Instead, if Rockefeller-hyung tells you that you did something wrong, you mean you never touch the ingredients here?”


Carter, who came out of the store for a moment while working gold coins, looked at the two children who had come to Banco and asked.

“What did your brothers and sisters come here for? Maybe something big happened, right?”

“no. It’s not a big deal, it’s just a family thing.”


After begging Carter for a while, Rockefeller took his two younger brothers out of the store.

Then he started to express his thoughts about the content of the fight.

“I’ll tell you what hyung was thinking about the two of you arguing here.”

As if in front of a judge, Andrew and Joshua swallowed their saliva in their throats, waiting for their elder brother, Rockefeller, to speak.

“You are both right, you are both wrong.”

When Rockefeller, who seemed to be on either side, gave an unexpected answer, the two younger brothers looked a little perplexed.

“Rockefeller, what do you mean?”

“If we were both right, and we were both wrong, then neither of us was right?”

“Maybe it will.”

Rockefeller passed on my thoughts to the two brothers who were bewildered.

“It’s really important to establish trust in any transaction, like Andrew. This is necessary, even if you want to touch a lot of money later.”

Andrew was delighted to hear that, while Joshua was sullen.

“then… … Do you have to be honest and give them trust as Andrew said?”

“No, you don’t have to be too honest. Trust me, but you don’t have to be honest.”

Hearing those words, their expressions changed again.

Rockefeller went on to talk to his two questioning brothers.

“If you are unconditionally honest, you can’t make a lot of money. However, losing trust is also not worth a lot of money. That means you can trust, but you don’t have to be honest. Do you understand?”

At the strange words, the two younger brothers made an expression that they did not understand.

“Rockefeller hyung, it’s difficult, so I don’t understand. What does that mean?”

“So do i. I don’t understand why you don’t have to be honest while giving trust.”

said Rockefeller.

“After all, making money is the result of taking other people’s money. So, how do you get someone else’s money? honest? If you’re too honest people will never give you their money. they’re not stupid So, like Andrew said, you’ll never make money. To do that, you have to make money from idiots.”

Those words demoralized Andrew, and, on the other hand, elated Joshua.

“okay! People are not stupid! If you’re too honest, you can’t make money like Rockefeller said.”

“But just because you don’t have to be honest doesn’t mean you can cheat like Joshua.”

And this time, Joshua also bowed his head.

“From what you two said earlier, Joshua, you were trying to cheat too directly. It’s never a good thing to deceive others like that. In fact, it’s like stealing.”

“then… … What should I do?”

Rockefeller smiled softly at Joshua’s question.

“What should I do? In a way that is legal in its own right, and in a way that does not break trust with them, they cheat as much as possible without knowing it.”

Why do this.

It was simple.

“That way you can make a lot of money.”

Good and bad.

The two brothers tried to understand at the vague words, and Rockefeller, on the other hand, showed that he did not demand quick understanding from those younger brothers.

“I don’t know.”

“me too… … .”

“What he said right now may be too difficult. But there is plenty of time ahead. From now on, keep in mind what hyung said and think about it again. Then you might see another way. Another way to earn more than the given way.”

As Rockefeller was about to end the conversation, he conveyed these words to his two younger brothers.

“Even if you don’t have a good way to deceive them, never, never, ever betray your trust with them. Even if you make little money, breaking that trust means you will lose everything in the end. So with this in mind, think about it again. I’m sure there will be some good ones.”
