Ancient Rome: From Slaveholder to Supreme Emperor - chapter 39
“A gift? You are so mysterious. I’m really curious about it…”
Ye Tian’s curiosity was completely evoked by the mystery of Philip. He really wanted to know what kind of gift Philip was going to give him.
“Your Excellency, please follow me!”
Philip very respectfully invited Ye Tian into his home.
Ye Tian was a new noble. If he could curry favour with him at this time, Ye Tian would bring unimaginable benefits to him in the future.
“Daisy, Angela, you two go back first!”
Ye Tian said softly to them. He knew that after Philip had invited him into the house, Philip must have arranged some entertainment for him；Therefore, there was no need for the two girls to follow him.
The two girls answered respectfully，And then they left.
“Your Excellency, please wait for a moment. I’ll arrange some banquet for you…”
After entering the yard, Philip said respectfully to Ye Tian, and then called the slaves to prepare the banquet. After that, he took Ye Tian to the living room.
Philip was in the slave business,So he was surely a rich man but was just short of the identity of Patricians.
There were many slaves in his family, and they were all high-quality slaves. There were many strong slave warriors standing in the courtyard.
The living room was luxuriously decorated, almost imitating the Patricians family by decoration .
In the center of the living room, there were shallow pools with clear water.When entertaining the guests, the young female slaves would play and dance in the water to please the drinking Patricians.
After being drunk, the Patricians could revel with the female slaves, making whoopee.
In the living room, there were rectangular stone tables and stools.
Not long after, young female slaves came out one by one, carrying plates of fruit or pots of wine.
Their clothes were extremely sexy, some even naked, with a graceful figure.
“Philip, your life is so luxurious. Compared to you, although I’m a Patrician，I’m really ashamed of myself…”
Looking at Philip’s luxurious life, Ye Tian couldn’t help but sigh with emotion. However, he could see that this guy was really ambitious.
“Your Excellency, you must be joking. This kind of decoration is specially used to entertain the Patrician like you. Normally, I won’t waste such a luxurious life on myself…”
Philip explained with an embarrassed smile.
“Good, you’re very smart!”
Ye Tian said approvingly.
“Heh heh …”
Philip smiled and then asked cautiously, “My lord, can I ask them to pour you some wine?”
Philip’s meaning was very obvious, he was asking if Ye Tian wanted these female slaves.
“Sorry, I don’t have this habit of receiving others’ female slaves as gifts…”
Ye Tian shook his head. These female slaves’ looks and figures were all nice,but they still had a big gap when compared with Angela. Besides, they were all tools for entertaining guests, Ye Tian really didn’t have any interest in them.
To put it bluntly, they’re Philip’s private prostitutes.
Philip nodded, and then gently made three handclap. Not long after, a still attractive middle-aged woman came over and there was a loveliness girl next to her. The girl was very young and even can be said immature. She looked only eleven or twelve years old at most, the figure had just grown.
Her figure was very thin, but the face was very cute and delicate. Especially those big watery eyes that looked very bright.
“New arrival, her mother died of illness a few years ago, and her father joined the ally army. At first, she was sentenced to death, but I saved her after paying a great price …”
Philip said proudly.
“He he… you are quite benevolent…”
Ye Tian said with a spurious smile.
“Hahaha… At least without me, she’s already dead, isn’t it?”
“Nice to meet you, Lord Satan…”
The charming middle-aged woman came to Ye Tian and greeted him respectfully.
“This is my wife, Kania.”
Philip introduced with a smile.
“Owning such a nice wife. Philip, you are truly a luck man. Please, sit down, lady.”
Ye Tian said with a smile. Although Kania was near 40 years old, she still owned a good-shaped, and with a little sonsy feeling. When she was young, she was definitely a beauty.
“Thank you, Lord Satan!”
Kania saluted Ye Tian, and the face was filled with smiles. After which, she gently touched the young girl and said to her, “Go pour some wine for Lord Satan…”
“Susan, you can follow Lord Satan, that’s surely because your mother’s soul blesses you in heaven. Please take good care of your new master…”
Philip said to her softly, in fact, this word was speaking to Ye Tian. Obviously, he meant to give the girl to him.
Ye Tian could not help but feel disappointed. Philip had been so secretive earlier, which made Ye Tian have thought that there was something special about the gift.
Perhaps, such a gift was special to other Patricians, because many of them did not have a bottom line. They didn’t care about the life or death of others and could do anything without any fear, only for their own desires.
But, at least, Ye Tian had the bottom line. Such a little girl, he really couldn’t.
In the end, he decided to take her away. Otherwise, her fate would be really miserable.
“Sit next to me…”
Feeling the uneasiness in Susan, Ye Tian smiled gently and said to her.
“Thank you, master…”
Her voice was shy, but it was very clear and melodious.
“Your excellency, let me pour some wine for you…”
Kania smiled, sat down next to Ye Tian and picked up the flagon.
“No, thanks. I’ll do it myself!”
Ye Tian shook the head and refused directly, which made Philip frown slightly. He felt that Ye Tian was too polite to them, as if Ye Tian didn’t want to be too close to them.
This made him a little disappointed. Ye Tian was a rarely new Patrician, he wanted to enter his eyes before Ye Tian developed enough. After that, he could take under Ye Tian’s wing.
“Philip, I’ve felt your sincerity. Don’t worry, we’ll definitely cooperate very well in the future…”
Ye Tian got the meaning of Philip’s expression, he said with the smile.
Philip was sagacious and sophisticated. Such a person, Ye Tian was willing to cooperate with him.
“Thank you very much, Lord Satan…”
Getting Ye Tian’s promise, Philip was overjoyed.
The next time, these two drank to heart’s content, and Kania kept pouring the wine for them, one after another.
“Philip, I have drank my fill. Thank you for your gift. I’ll go back first. And Susan, I’ll bring her back with me, to prevent her from being wasted by others.”
After drinking for about an hour, Ye Tian stood up and said lightly.
“Hahaha … Lord Satan, Susan is indeed prepared for you, but she isn’t the gift I said!”
Philip stood up and smiled high-blown.
“Lord Satan, please follow me. I dare to say, this gift is definitely unique!”
After finishing, he led Ye Tian and walked toward a secret room.
“What is it?”
Ye Tian’s curiosity was completely aroused.
(Take a guess, guys. What’s the mysterious gift? There may be a surprise if you’re right… )
