Ancient Rome: From Slaveholder to Supreme Emperor - Chapter 42
Philip couldn’t help looking at Ye Tian with a hint of nervousness in his eyes. It seemed he didn’t know how to respond.
Crassus’s background was too powerful,he was not someone the civilians like Philip could deal with.
“Loar Satan, I didn‘t expect to meet you here.What a coincidence……”
Crassus smiled at Ye Tian and greeted Ye Tian initiatively. What kind of person Crassus was! His insight was absolutely great, Philp‘s nervousness couldn’t escape his eyes naturally.
“It’s my honor to see you again, your lordship. Yesterday, I had seen the warrior competition you hold ,it really really broadened my horizon. Looking back now, it still made my adrenaline surge ……”
Ye Tian smilingly replied, this was the first time he contacted the old fox.
“It’s my great honor to gain Lord Satan‘s recognition.After all,you are also a powerful warrior.In addition, I thank you on behalf of the whole Roman, saving us from a crisis. …..”
Crassus said to Ye Tian sincerely. The thing had already spread widely among Plebeians let alone among Patricians, that Aurelia had married her daughter to Ye Tian and put on a record to the Senate in a hurry.
Naturally, the thing that Ye Tian bravely rescued Aurelia and Caesar was also spread and was well-known by many people.
Crassus was very curious about Ye Tian. He didn’t believe that Aurelia would marry her daughter to Ye Tian just because he had once saved them.
Julius’ family would not be so superficial and generous. Like other Patricians, whether the Jursis or Aurelius Cotta family，the decisions they made were all for the benefit of their own family.
Just like more than 20 years ago, the Julius family married their daughter to a Plebeian, Gaius Marius, many Patricians scoffed them at that time. But soon after，Gaius Marius had become such a personage who even made the Senate fear very much. At the same time, the status of Julius’s family had also improved again with the help of Gaius Marius’s influence.
Therefore, Crassus felt that Ye Tian must had something special and it had been confirmed yesterday.
At present, he could be sure that Ye Tian winning the bet was absolutely not based on the mindset of the bet, but he had seen through his plan.
In his mind, he had already treated Ye Tian as an opponent. Crassus had great ambition and he wouldn’t despise anyone . Especially Ye Tian, who was only three years younger than him, he was very likely to be his opponent in political circles at the same period.
“Thank you for your compliment.I also appreciate the gods that make me stronger enough and let me get Mrs. Aurelia‘s recognition.I feel very honored，thanking God’s favor to us and thanking the great Rome.
Ye Tian smiley said with a modest tone.
In fact, he was also afraid of this guy. Philip took advantage of the dark night to bring the wolf girl back with an iron cage wrapped in black cloth, it was still noticed by this guy. Had he begun to set secret agents in Rome？
If so,this guy would be so scary.
Moreover, this guy’s curiosity was too strong,or his business sense was too sensitive.
“It’s true that we have to thank the gods, and our great Rome. By the way, you seem interested in the land of Max Allred, that rich businessman?”
Crassus asked Ye Tian with a faint smile on his face.
“Are you following me?”
Ye Tian narrowed his eyes slightly and asked Crassus camly. But in his heart, he was quite shocked that he made this decision just now. Why did this guy know it immediately?
“Mr. Satan, I think you must have misunderstood. Witnessed by Rome, I’m also interested in that piece of land, so I arranged someone to inspect it today. But, my men found you are also inspecting it,so I guess you’re also interested in that piece of land…”
Crassus explained. In fact, he had noticed Ye Tian yesterday and was very curious about him, so he asked people to pay attention to Ye Tian. Today, his men happened to see that Ye Tian was inspecting that piece of land.So he guessed that Ye Tian wanted to buy that piece of land.
At first, he had no interest in that piece of land. But he didn’t know why, he suddenly wanted to sound out of Ye Tian’s intent and wanted to learn the strength and means of Ye Tian. So, he decided to compete with him.
In fact,Ye Tian had seen through his plan yesterday, which made him have treated Ye Tian as an opponent. So, he couldn’t wait to know Ye Tian more.
Especially, after knowing that Aurelia lobbied the Senate for Ye Tian today, that thought turned into more pressing.
“Oh, you’re right. Indeed, I want to buy that piece of land. I don’t know if you can be as great as Roman and share this land to me. I think the gods must praise your kindness…”
Ye Tian smiled and asked calmly. How could he believe the words Crassus had said? He knew that he might have been targeted by this guy. The reason should be the bet he had placed yesterday!
Ye Tian didn’t expect, this guy was so suspicious and cautious, unexpectedly, he would notice him.
“Hehe… That’s impossible. That piece of land is of great use to me.I also want you to share it to me.
After a short space out, Crassus smiley replied.
Satan was indeed not simple. When this guy learned that he also wanted this land, instead of giving up, this guy actually wanted him to share it. There wasn’t any cowardice and flattery as a new noble, nor the gentleman and arrogance of the old noble. He actually “shamelessly” asked him to quit.
How could there be such a shameless Patrician？
Therefore, Crassus thought that Ye Tian was the same kind of person like him.
“Most of the time, the nobles are not willing to engage in business, aren’t they? Or else, It’s easy to be looked down upon by other Patricians!”
Ye Tian smiled and asked Crassus.
“Aren’t you the same? Dear Lora Satan, you’re also a Patrician now. You need to change some habits…”
Crassus said with a smile and he knew his opponent had appeared.
“I’m determined to get that piece of land!”
Ye Tian looked at Crassus and said calmly.
“Then let’s do it by our own means. Mr Satan…”
Crassus smiled with confidence.
Ye Tian said calmly. He didn’t expect that there was a trade war in the beginning of his plan.
I won‘t be lonely！
Ye Tian sighed. In the future, two of the three big shots would go against him.
