Ancient Rome: From Slaveholder to Supreme Emperor - Chapter 40
It’s a secret room, whereafter, Philip opened a heavy door, inside was incomparably inky.
Philip ignited the oil lamp to let the light illuminate the whole darkroom.
An iron cage!
Unexpectedly,there was a huge iron cage in the darkroom.
As Philip walked towards the cage, a roar with a trace of anger sounded from it, which scared Philip from going on.
The so-called gift was a beast?
Ye Tian frowned, and the roar sounded neither a tiger and lion, nor a cheetah, as if it was a wolf.
Then, following it was another roar.
A dark figure pounced on the cage, even hitting the cage reelingly.One could only imagine how powerful the creature was.
In the light of the fire, Ye Tian finally saw this creature.
It had golden pelage all over the body, which covered the whole body up. Its hair almost reached the ground.
What Ye Tian could not understand was that it was actually a humanoid creature, even could call it a human!
A woman! The thick hair covered her body, except for her face. She wasn’t any different from any real woman, and there was a beautiful face. But just when she opened her mouth, there exposed a pair of sharp fangs.
Besides that, her nails were also very sharp, just like claws.
Looking at the appearance, she was very young, about 12 or 13 years old. She stood upright against the cage, the hair on her chest was slightly bulging which was obviously the characteristic of a woman.When she stood up, the figure looked quite tall and slim, and even could be called graceful.
Except for the fur and the instinct of a beast, she was a thorough girl.
Her eyes were also the same as beasts, ferocious and bloodthirsty.
Ye Tian began to survey her stats.
Identity: Wolf Girl
Note: this is a human girl, who was raised by a special and mysterious female wolf.
A wolf girl! She was a wolf girl!
Ye Tian was completely surprised. Before traveling into this world,he had also seen or heard some news about the human babies being raised by the female wolves or other female animals .But unexpectedly, he personally saw such a thing today.
Moreover, in the legend, the city Rome seemed to be founded by two brothers who had been raised by a female wolf..
There was a beautiful legend about the origin of Rome, which was called “She-Wolf nursling”.
Legend had it that in the 7th and 8th centuries BC, the king of Rome was usurped and expelled by his brother, Amulius.The king’s son was killed; and Silvia, the king’s daughter married Mars,whereafter, they gave birth to twin brothers. When Amulius heard about this, he was so angry; Next, he killed Silvia, put the twins in a basket and threw them into the Tiber river preparing to drown them.However,instead of sinking,the basket drifted to the shore. A she-wolf took them away,and raised them with its own milk.Later, they were picked up and raised by a hunter.When the two brothers grew up, they were intelligent,brave and powerful.In the end,they finally killed Amulius and avenged for their mother.
After that, with the help of their people, the two brothers built a city on the Tiber river and named it ‘Romulus’. With the changes of history, it became the present “Rome”.
Now,the emblem of Rome was a she-wolf with two boys. In the Roman museum, there was also a “She-Wolf nursling sculpture”.
She-Wolf nursed, such a thing actually happened aside from him.
Ye Tian was incomparably astonished.
This wolf girl was actually an abandoned human baby.
A mysterious and special female wolf?
Ye Tian noticed a key word when browsing the information the system gave him.
This mysterious and special female wolf，what kind of female wolf was it really ？
Ye Tian was incomparably curious.
But the stats of the wolf girl were too amazing. Both the strength and physique had reached 98,and the speed was even up to 100.No wonder she was able to shake the cage.What was more, this wolf girl was still a cub!
“Philip,is she a beast or a human?”
Although he knew what really Wolf Girl was, Ye Tian still asked him.
“Ha ha… Lord Satan, do you like such a gift? ”
Philip laughed and said proudly,”It was found by a hunter，in order to catch her, I lost more than 20 strong men.”
“It’s very novel. I like it very much.I’ll take this precious gift. If there is any good thing in the future,I’ll think of you for the first time.But does anyone else know of her existence?
How could Ye Tian not like her?Not only her IQ was definitely much higher than other beasts but also her stats were so powerful.If Ye Tian tamed her well,she would definitely be a terrible killer.
Instead of selling her to other slaveholders or other Patricians,Philip gave her to him. He really owed him a big favor.
“Lord Satan,please rest assured.I have killed others who know of its existence!”
Philip smiled with a hint of coldness in his eyes.
“Very good! There will be benefits for you in the future,and I will even make you also a noble as long as there is the chance!”
Ye Tian gave him a promise, patting Philip on the shoulder with satisfaction.
“Do you know anything else about her?”
Ye Tian asked curiously. The information his system gave him was too little,he wanted to learn more.
“ I’m not sure, but it is said that twelve years ago, a pregnant woman in a small village gave birth to a baby girl, who had golden hair all over her body . When other villagers learned this, they thought she was an ominous monster . But no one dared to kill her, so they forced her mother to abandon her in the forest on a cold winter night . That night, there was a huge female wolf coming there and screaming towards the moon. In the end, it carried this baby girl in the mouth disappearing in the forest together. A lot of people thought she had been eaten by this female wolf, but now it seemed that she may have been raised by this female wolf…”
Thinking for a moment, Philip spoke of a legend twelve years ago.
(Did anyone guess it?Will you like the role of wolf girl?)
