After receiving money, the two brothers left the mercenary camp and headed straight for the market.
Although the road to the market was long, the distance between the mercenary camp and the market was not a big deal for the two brothers, who were excited about making money.
The two brothers, who arrived at the village market excitedly, started buying the ingredients that Revan had mentioned, and after buying enough ingredients they could afford, they headed straight to the mercenary camp.
But before he could even leave the market, the third Joshua called up the second, who was ahead of him.
“Wait a minute. I have something to say.”
“What do you want to say?”
Joshua, who put the ingredients on the floor for a moment, continued.
“I just thought. we are there Shall we get a little out of here?”
“You want to steal it? What are you talking about?”
“that is… … I’m trying to move everything, so it’s a little difficult. It’s just that when I think about it, even if I take a few out of it, I don’t think there will be any.”
Then the second Andrew, in a sharp voice, urged Joshua.
“No! Then you are cheating!”
“It is, but… … .”
Joshua, who had a shaky tail, began to persuade Andrew once again.
“Even if you get a few out of here, you won’t even get a peek.”
“Because I can’t! you’re not saying that We made a promise to those men. I will never cheat.”
“Are you going to bring all of this? Then you’ll have to pay a little bit more. I mean, this is hard.”
“You’ve already paid for your hard work.”
“You could get more.”
“Are you really going to do that?”
“Andrew, think a little differently. We don’t have to bring it all like an idiot?”
Second Andrew did not like the immorality of the third Joshua, and Joshua, on the other hand, seemed frustrated with his second brother, who was trying to be too honest.
“Anyway, even if I steal a little from here, those people won’t know. And if we take a few pieces from here, we can have a more full meal for our family in the evening. You know Andrew too, right? We have so many mouths that we are always hungry at dinner.”
“I still don’t do that.”

“So you came here?”
Rockefeller saw his two younger brothers visiting him.
Two younger brothers were arguing over who was right on an errand, and they stopped by Carter Banco, where the eldest was, to find a quick answer.
Before coming to Banco, the two had a conversation like this.
“It’s near the market anyway, so let’s go to Banco and ask Rockefeller. Brother Rockefeller will tell you who is right.”
“Ok, fine. If Rockefeller tells me I’m wrong, I won’t force him any more. If Rockefeller hyung takes my side instead, then Andrew hyung won’t even say anything?”
“Yeah, do it. Instead, if Rockefeller-hyung tells you that you did something wrong, you mean you never touch the ingredients here?”
Carter, who came out of the store for a moment while working gold coins, looked at the two children who had come to Banco and asked.
“What did your brothers and sisters come here for? Maybe something big happened, right?”
“no. It’s not a big deal, it’s just a family thing.”
After begging Carter for a while, Rockefeller took his two younger brothers out of the store.
Then he began to express his thoughts about the content of the two quarrels.
“I’ll tell you what hyung was thinking about the two of you arguing here.”
As if in front of a judge, Andrew and Joshua swallowed their saliva in their throats, waiting for their elder brother, Rockefeller, to speak.
“You are both right, you are both wrong.”
When Rockefeller, who seemed to be on either side, gave an unexpected answer, the two younger brothers looked a little perplexed.
“Rockefeller, what do you mean?”
“If we were both right, and we were both wrong, then neither of us was right?”
“Maybe it will.”
Rockefeller passed on my thoughts to the two brothers who were bewildered.
“It’s really important to establish trust in any transaction, like Andrew. This is necessary, even if you want to touch a lot of money later.”
Andrew was delighted to hear that, while Joshua was sullen.
“then… … Do you have to be honest and give them trust as Andrew said?”
“No, you don’t have to be too honest. Trust me, but you don’t have to be honest.”
Hearing those words, their expressions changed again.
Against his two questioning brothers, Rockefeller continued his speech.
“If you are unconditionally honest, you can’t make a lot of money. However, losing trust is also not worth a lot of money. That means you can trust, but you don’t have to be honest. Do you understand?”
At the strange words, the two younger brothers made an expression that they did not understand.
“Rockefeller hyung, it’s difficult, so I don’t understand. What does that mean?”
“So do i. I don’t understand why you don’t have to be honest while giving trust.”
“After all, making money is the result of taking other people’s money. So, how do you get someone else’s money? honest? If you’re too honest people will never give you their money. they’re not stupid So, like Andrew said, you’ll never make money. To do that, you have to make money from idiots.”
Those words demoralized Andrew, and, on the other hand, elated Joshua.
“okay! People are not stupid! If you’re too honest, you can’t make money like Rockefeller said.”
“But just because you don’t have to be honest doesn’t mean you can cheat like Joshua.”
And this time, Joshua also bowed his head.
“From what you two said earlier, Joshua, you were trying to cheat too directly. It’s never a good thing to deceive others like that. In fact, it’s like stealing.”
“then… … What should I do?”
Rockefeller smiled softly at Joshua’s question.
“What should I do? In a way that is legal in its own right, and in a way that does not break trust with them, they cheat as much as possible without knowing it.”
Why do this.
It was simple.
“That way you can make a lot of money.”
Good and bad.
At the vague words, the two younger brothers tried to understand, while Rockefeller, on the other hand, did not demand quick understanding from those younger brothers.
“I don’t know.”
“me too… … .”
“What he said right now may be too difficult. But there is plenty of time ahead. From now on, keep the words your brother said in his heart and think about it again. Then you might see another way. Another way to earn more than the given way.”
As Rockefeller was about to end the conversation, he conveyed these words to his two younger brothers.
“Even if you don’t have a good way to deceive them, never, never, ever betray your trust with them. Even if you make little money, breaking that trust means you will lose everything in the end. So with this in mind, think about it again. I’m sure there will be some good ones.”
Let me know what you think!
