“The priests of the parish came and went?”
Rockefeller, who got a job in Banco, told his brothers what had happened today at dinner.
It was none other than the fourth, Leo Los Medici, who was the first of his brothers to tell the news.
When Leo, who was passive, answered, Rockefeller had no choice but to question.
‘Why did the priests come? It doesn’t happen often.’
“therefore? Did nothing happen?”
At the question of concern, the fourth Leo shook his head for a moment, then pulled out something he had received from the young priest and laid it down quietly on the table.
“What is that?”
“It’s a silver coin!”
No one was not surprised to see the silver coin.
Rockefeller was surprised, and so were his other brothers.
“Did the priests even give you silver coins? What happened?”
The second child, who had heard stories outside, raised a voice.
“weird. I heard that the priests came to collect money for the expansion of the chapel.”
However, the timid fourth did not dare to intercept the priests’ donations, so their doubts were bound to increase.
“Leo, can you tell me more about what happened during the day?”
At Rockefeller’s words, the fourth Leo told me in detail what had happened earlier in the day, and then everyone was in a sea of laughter.
Hearing about the self-inflicted species, Rockefeller thought with a grin.
‘I came here to rip it off, but rather ripped it off.’
Rockefeller spoke, followed by his brothers.
“I always have to pretend not to be there! It looks like we’re not there, so the church didn’t help?”
“right. You always have to pretend you don’t exist. That’s how you get even silver coins because you’re pitiful.”
Rockefeller spoke to the younger brothers who were excited by a small silver coin.
“It’s not wrong. If we had pretended that we were, or if we had put forth our humble pride because we were commoners, there would never have been mercy like today. Leo, good job. In our current situation, not even a single silver coin is a pity.”
Since their gold mining, they always had dinner, and it was the same today.
“Come on, let’s have dinner.”
As soon as Rockefeller finished speaking, the younger brothers, who had reported to him about the events of the day, began to chime in and break the modest dinner set before them.
It was a really simple meal made with whole grain flour and simple vegetables, but it was the best dinner for the younger brothers who were hungry all day.
The third person, who was hesitantly throwing away the food on the table saying the market was a side dish, made a pleasant voice.
“It seems like I eat rice every day! I love it!”
At those words, the second suddenly became depressed.
He didn’t tell Rockefeller, but he had bad news.
“Andrew, why? Is there anything bad about it?”
The second, who had been somewhat infringed on indictment at Rockefeller’s question, began to open his mouth carefully.
“Rockefeller, did you hear that story?”
“What are you talking about?”
“that is… … Suddenly the orcs appeared. There’s a riot in the neighboring town and here because of the orcs that appeared out of the blue right now. Adults never go to dangerous places. What if we can’t even mine gold dust like this?”
As for what he was talking about, it was a story I had already heard through a goldsmith.
“There’s something I haven’t told you guys before. My brother got a job.”
“Banko. Well done talking to the goldsmith. So don’t worry about starving in the future. My brother will earn enough to feed you somehow.”
“Is that real? and! Did you really get a job at Banco?”
Rockefeller gave his brothers boundless confidence with a more serious face than ever.
“Yes, starting tomorrow, I will be working for a goldsmith. Of course, the income you are earning right now may not be as good, but at least you will not be as hungry as before.”
Then the third, who was full of anticipation, began to spit out the ideal words.
“Hey! Now we will be rich If Rockefeller hyung works in Banco and Andrew and I dig gold, won’t we get rich soon? Right?”
The moment he was about to sing because he liked the excited third brother, the second started scolding him with a wrinkled expression.
“Hey, you idiot! Orcs are roaming around, so how do you mine dangerously gold!”
“That’s it, if you look closely at the net. Leo and Lucia are here too, what are you worried about?”
“Lucia is too young!”
“Still, you can do something stupid.”
As the second and third clashed, Rockefeller, who was watching, began to speak.
“No, I have something to tell you about that.”
Everyone’s attention was focused on Rockefeller, who continued his words to his younger brothers, who only stared at him.
“I would like to avoid gold mining in the future.”
The third was the most disappointing.
“why not? Since Rockefeller hyung got a job, wouldn’t it be better if me and Andrew hyung dig up gold dust? So, your income will be doubled, right?”
Rockefeller calmly shook his head at those words.
“no. I think the rumors circulating these days are too bad for that. Then if you guys run into Orcs, it’s going to be a really big deal. And since he got a job, he doesn’t need to hang out with gold dust.”
“But is it a pity? So you’re telling me not to go on?”
As the third person complained about how bad gold dust was, Rockefeller began to explain why they shouldn’t.
“The most important thing is your safety. There is no need to starve to death right now, so there is no need to go out and gather gold.”
“That’s it… … Yes, though.”
“And right now, it hasn’t been a while since we started mining gold, so I haven’t heard of anyone, but I think the secret that a lot of placer comes from here in Montefeltro must never be leaked.”
The second, including the third, began to question the vague words.
“What is the reason?”
“Of course there is a reason.”
Rockefeller struggled a lot about whether or not to say this to his younger brothers.
Because it was a dream that might be too vain.
‘Whatever you say is fine.’
“It’s my brother. I plan to buy this estate after earning a lot of money. Because this land is so good that even gold can come out.”
At that, his brothers looked surprised.
“But is that possible?”
There were questions, but Rockefeller’s answer was simple.
“Of course it is possible. The right to buy and sell this land is a natural right of a lord. So, if you have enough money, you can buy the estate here. Whether the lord here sells the land to wealthy commoners or not is a matter of a later date, but that’s just a matter of adding more money.”
All I really needed was money.
really a lot of money… … .
The younger brothers did not deny Rockefeller’s words, but they also did not deny that it was an impossible reality.
“You have to be really rich to do that… … .”
“I don’t think the Lord will hand over this land for a penny.”
“right. So you have to be very rich.”
“Is it possible?”
“I do not know either… … .”
Rockefeller smiled and broke his luck to his depressed brothers.
“We will never be able to make enough money to buy this estate if we spend our whole lives plowing the fields or doing other work. Because that’s impossible in the first place. But did your brother have something to say to you the other day? Answer me. How do you make big money?”
To that question, the younger brothers answered with Lee Gu-dong.
“Sit down and earn!”
“Yeah, right. Big money is never made by work. Either he’s in business or he’s got to make an unearned income somehow. In that sense, hyung has already put the first button on that by getting a job at Banco.”
It will be difficult for the younger brothers to understand or accept the meaning of Rockefeller now.
But Rockefeller was firm in his will and made it clear on this occasion.
“You and I and everyone in this family was born without great talent, but that doesn’t mean we should be poor for the rest of our lives. If you have your own efforts and will, it is quite possible to change such a boring life. So, you guys just have to watch hyung from now on. I’m going to show you how to get rich.”
