Episode 35 10. Faith creates wealth (3)
After the conversation, the two appeared again, and the young lord, who had been sitting in his seat until now with an uncomfortable look, opened his mouth.
“So, can I borrow 5,000 talents?”
The lord, who needed quite a lot of money due to the circumstances, was determined to borrow a lot at this time.
He gave up all his advice from his father and started looking for a way to live.
If the borrowed amount was too large to cause problems later, then he was planning to use his power very actively.
He was the owner of this land.
Even if the borrowed amount is large, what will a mere banco trader do to himself?
“I’m really sorry to keep you waiting.”
“It’s okay. Rather, I’d like to hear an answer. Can’t we just say that it’s a story that didn’t exist now?”
“Then you can borrow 5,000 talents right now, right?”
good guts too
No matter what the circumstances, the thought of taking gold coins that are several dozen times the amount you normally borrow.
“Are you going to borrow 5,000 talents?”
“why? I don’t know what the estate will be like right now, but I need that much money.”
“It seems that you are borrowing more than you normally borrow… … .”
“Are there any problems?”
“It’s not that I don’t know the will of the Lord, but… … .”
Carter looked into the lord’s eyes and continued speaking.
“The amount to borrow this time is very large. I’m worried that you’ll get into trouble after borrowing 5,000 talents, not just a few hundred talents.”
The lord’s gaze flew toward Carter like a blade and pierced it.
“Look. Do you not believe me? I am the owner of this land.”
“Oh, no. How can I not trust the Lord?”
“Then you can just lend it to me. There are so many things to say.”
Youngjoo continued speaking with a very displeased expression.
“Who would think I was just wasting money here. I am not such a shameless person.”
“Will the lord take away my money? I didn’t mean it that way… … .”
“stop. If you can lend it to me, don’t say anything, just lend it to me. Things are urgent now. I don’t have time to play around like this.”
When the lord had finished speaking, the lord smiled, and Carter was able to read some of the unclean thoughts in his smile.
In the past, there must have been someone who smiled like that at himself like a lord.
‘It’s exactly the same as that guy back then. At first, I wanted to repay it well, but at some point I borrowed a large amount of money and went diving. Even thinking about how hard it was to find him, my teeth tremble.’
In Carter’s experience, not all bad debtors were bad debtors to begin with.
They, too, were once good debtors with good credit.
Then, things change at some point and they suddenly become bad debtors.
“Hmm… … .”
By this time Carter felt he needed Rockefeller.
Although he had been through everything before and after childbirth, it was because only his assistant, Rockefeller, was able to make fun of his three tongues skillfully in this situation.
Then Rockefeller, acting quickly, suddenly intervened between them.
“As the situation is, I think the 5,000 talents that the lord said can be borrowed without any problems.”
Rockefeller’s sudden interruption was not very welcome, but Carter’s procrastinating reply was blunt, so there was no reason for the lord to dislike Rockefeller.
“Yeah, your assistant is better than the stuffy you. Can you lend me?”
“Yes, of course, I can lend you. Who dares to borrow it, and will we refuse it?”
At those words, Yeongju gave a satisfied expression.
“Good to hear.”
“Lord, is it 5,000 talents?”
“Aren’t you going to borrow more from there anyway?”
“no. If you need more, I am willing to lend you more there.”
The lord and Carter were surprised at the same time.
The lord was surprised that there was more hidden money in this banco, while Carter thought so.
‘What nonsense is that? Will you lend me another 5,000 talents?’
Rockefeller’s words were not impossible because he was making and lending money that he didn’t have anyway, but Carter’s words, who acted too daringly, had no choice but to make Carter even more nervous.
At this time, Young-ju erased his satisfied expression and wrinkled his expression again.
Then his gaze became a blade again and flew to Carter.
“Hey, how many gold coins are you hiding? Did you have so many gold coins that you could lend them more than 5,000 talents?”
The lord, unaware of the fact that he was making and lending gold coins that did not exist, thought so and pressured Carter, who suddenly became a liar and reflexively waved his hand.
“Oh, no. Not like that.”
Carter’s gaze changed terribly and he flew to Rockefeller who said the wrong thing, and then Rockefeller laughed and set out to rectify the situation.
“Lord, that’s not it. The only gold coin we can lend you is the 5,000 talents that Uncle Carter personally owns.”
“Then where are you going to borrow it?”
If rumors spread that the goldsmith had secretly lent other people’s money other than his own, the feudal lord had no choice but to be held accountable for the crime.
Therefore, Rockefeller was to ask the lord for his understanding in advance in case the situation would come later.
“Your lord must know that you can’t lend someone else’s gold coins when you lend them gold coins at our store, right?”
“Are you going to lend someone’s gold coins?”
The lord made a slightly displeased expression.
It was because it was beyond his common sense.
“It is a crime. Of course, someone else’s gold coin is someone else’s gold coin, so why lend it to someone else? It’s not even your gold coin.”
“But, lord. Is the situation not the situation? The lord needs a lot of gold right now, but we can only lend up to 5,000 talents as we follow the existing rules. However, if the Lord turns a blind eye to this matter, we can also help to the fullest extent possible.”
Youngjoo continued to look disapproving.
The life of Banco was trust.
In that sense, people are entrusting gold coins like their own lives, so you can play with those gold coins.
Normally, he would have been angry, but as a lord in urgent need of money right now, he was in a situation where he could not just listen to Rockefeller.
Rockefeller secretly made a proposal to the lord who was coughing for some reason.
“We will take great risks and help out just this one time, so wouldn’t the lord also take care of us?”
“We want the Lord to quietly close our eyes even if we break the existing rule that we can only lend our gold coins. Then it will be possible for us to lend more than 5,000 talents to the lord this time.”
“Of course, if the Lord allows it.”
It was the power of the lord that could sufficiently change the existing laws according to the circumstances.
The lord, who had been coughing for some reason, patted my beard and thought about Rockefeller’s proposal.
Actually, there was nothing to think about.
The money was urgent right now, and for that money, the existing laws could be ignored for a while for convenience.
“Can I do that just this one time?”
Having brought up Governor Lee Wang-ji, Rockefeller was about to ask for a clear permission at this point.
“Still, it seems difficult to keep the rules once broken. Since the lord has also benefited from the convenience, wouldn’t it be right to continue providing it to other people as well? So I want the Lord to take a look so we can secretly lend customers gold coins.”
At Rockefeller’s words, the lord gently wrinkled his expression.
the little guy said
“If you lend someone’s gold coins instead of the gold coins here, I’ll make a lot of money. I want to make a lot of money.”
At the lord’s slightly sarcastic remark, Rockefeller responded with a smirk.
“Then the tax to pay to the lord will of course increase. I think it will be good not only for us, but also for the Lord.”
It was a welcome thing from the lord’s point of view that business was going well in Banco, which belongs to his estate.
It was so because saying that the business is going well is no different from paying a lot of taxes.
“From what I’ve heard, it wouldn’t be that bad if there were no problems. But that would definitely cause problems, right? What will you do then?”
It was difficult for the lord to know the details of how it would not cause any problems even if he lent someone else’s gold coins.
So Rockefeller decided to omit the detailed explanation and said this.
“If there is a problem, we will take care of it. So, Lord, you don’t have to worry too much about that.”
“Are you going to take responsibility? Can you tell me that?”
“Yes, of course.”
The lord, who was talking to Rockefeller, found Carter, the owner of the store.
“Yes, did you call?”
“Hey, can you take responsibility for what I said?”
Carter didn’t hesitate to ask that question.
“Oh, yes, of course. Then, if there is a problem, we will take full responsibility.”
“okay? Good guts too. Do you want to take responsibility like that? Go back later and don’t say anything else.”
“Yes, you don’t have to worry about that part.”
The lord decided not to complain any more when he said he would take responsibility if there was a problem.
‘If there’s a problem, I’ll take care of it. I have a lot of money, will I have a problem? Because it’s only me who can rip off a lot of taxes.’
Carter had several thoughts as he looked at Rockefeller facing the lord.
‘You’re going to solve it this way?’
In the meantime, I’ve been seriously bothered by secretly lending someone’s gold coins, but I’m going to solve that problem like this.
‘He’s a really cool guy. It goes like this.’
If it were me, I probably wouldn’t even have said that.
Because I couldn’t figure out what kind of attitude the lord would take there.
However, when the lord seduced him in such a way that he saw a profit together in a situation in which he had no choice but to understand, the lord was forced to fall for Rockefeller, and Carter, who was watching this, had no choice but to admire.
‘What do you want to be when you grow up? What a scary kid.’
While Carter was thinking about this and that, the lord was thinking about a gold coin he could borrow more.
‘I borrow more from 5,000 talents… … .’
In fact, even the 5,000 talents he had decided to borrow was quite a sum.
That’s an extra loan.
If his deceased father had known the story, he might have jumped out of his seat.
Because it wasn’t that easy to see.
‘It’s a debt, you just have to pay it off slowly.’
However, the situation was not good.
Because it seemed like the shrimp would explode in a whale fight due to an all-out war between the two factions near the border.
‘I’ll try to live for now.’
“So how much more can it be?”
If you can definitely get the money borrowed from the lord.
It was good for Rockefeller to lend as much as possible.
‘I’ve already figured out how to get it back. They also laid out the plates.’
Rockefeller had not forgotten the lord’s arrogant snout when his father, Hans Roth’Medich, was buried.
‘I have to return what I received as gracefully as possible.’
Some with a sword, some with debt.
