Ancient Rome: From Slaveholder to Supreme Emperor - Chapter 10
“I am not a warrior because I have still not promised to be Lady Aurelia’s knight escort!” Ye Tian smiled.
“But that is very easy for you, you just need to nod your head. I will congratulate you in advance.” The slave trader’s smiling face was even more unsightly than crying.
“Then I thank you. I’m going to buy these two slaves, how about three gold coins each?” Ye Tian asked.
A slave’s market price was indeed high. After all, they were free laborers, especially the beautiful female slaves. For slaveholders, they could not only work, but also take care of their sexual desires.
“No, sir, I will give them to you…”
The slave trader’s mouth twitched as he screamed furiously in his mind. He thought that Ye Tian would give him a reasonable price, but he just offered him three gold coins for one girl. Not only would the cost not come back, but the loss really was too great.
“You feel the price is too high? Who am I? How can I take your merchandise without paying? Here, take it…”
Ye Tian righteously said to the slave trader. He then took out six gold coins and forced them into the slave trader’s hands.
“Thank you for your patronage. May I ask your name? According to regulation, I will brand the surname of the slaveholder on the slave’s body.”
The slave trader wanted to weep but no tears came out.The loss was so great, but he did not dare say anything. He had to continue to please Ye Tian.
“Satan Ye Tian!”
Ye Tian reported his name, and then said,”You need not brand the slaves since your brand is too ugly. When I see it, it will affect my little brother. I will do it myself when I get back!”
“Ok, I understand…” The slave trader naturally knew what Ye Tian bought the slaves for.
“Angela, bring them along and let’s go back!” Ye Tian was very satisfied.
Angela nodded respectfully. Looking at the twins, she was a little depressed. She didn’t know if the arrival of these two sisters would make her fall out of favor.
Angela had just untied the ropes on the hands of the two twins, when they immediately kneeled down.
“What’s wrong?” Ye Tian’s brow slightly wrinkled.
“Master, please buy our mother too. We don’t want to be separated from her…”
There was a terrible panic in Daisy’s eyes, but she still gathered the courage to beseech Ye Tian.
“Bitch, who let you open your mouth without your owner’s permission and dare to make demands. Do you think that you are still the beauty that everyone wants to pursue?”
Seeing that Daisy and Dinna not only kneeled, but also begged Ye Tian, the slave trader’s face changed. He raised the soft whip in his hand and wanted to bring it down on them.
The rules of slavery in Rome were very strict, and slaves were not allowed to speak without their master’s permission. He was afraid that Ye Tian would blame him for not teaching his slaves well. But, he was actually more worried about his reputation.
Ye Tian grabbed the slaver’s hand as he brought it down, the terrifying strength made the slave trader turn pale with a cold sweat.
“To rebuke my slaves, you should have asked for my permission! Are you dissatisfied with me, or do you look down on me?” Ye Tian asked in a low voice, his body exuding an oppressive feeling.
“Sir, I am sorry. It was my mistake…” The slave trader quickly apologized.
“Forget it, it’s not your fault!” Ye Tian let go of his hand.
“Thank you, sir. Your mercy is enough to compare with the gods. May the gods bless you.” The slave trader immediately flattered Ye Tian.
Ye Tian’s strength was so terrible that his hand almost broke.
“So, you have their mother?” Ye Tian asked curiously.
“Yes, she is also in my hands… but my slave hasn’t finished training her yet, thus I can’t sell her…” The slave trader said.
“Since you said that I am merciful, I will be merciful again. Sell her to me and let them reunite!”
Ye Tian smiled. He would not miss any opportunity to raise his slaves’ loyalty.
Sure enough as soons as the words left his mouth, Daisy and Dinna gave him a grateful look. Their loyalty index soared and arrived at 60% in a flash.
When the slave trader saw Ye Tian did not blame him for his offense, he readily agreed. He received three gold coins from Ye Tian’s hand and then walked towards the room behind him.
Not long after, a woman was brought out by two old women with her hands still locked.
The mother was beyond Ye Tian’s expectations, this woman was not old at all, looking like she was only about 30 years old. Her face was similar to that of Daisy and Dinna. The same beauty, just more mature.
Her skin was fair and delicate, and it was obvious that she had been born into a wealthy family; As with her daughters, her clothes were thin, but still covered the important parts of the body.
She was tall and had slender legs – 1.85 meter, almost the same height as Ye Tian. Her figure was very sexy, graceful, and shapely; she was absolutely a stunner. Daisy and Dinna should inherit her advantages.
Her eyes were blank and it was clear that she was still unable to accept that she was now a slave.
Only when she saw her two daughters, the woman finally looked alive. She excitedly ran over, wanting to hold them in her arms, but when she realized that her hands were still locked, she could not help but shed tears of sadness.
This time, the slave trader did not dare to stop her.
“Well, let’s go!” Ye Tian urged the mother and daughters.
On the way back, many people cast envious eyes on him.
Although there were many female slaves, there were very few that were so beautiful. And today, Ye Tian had rounded them all up.
