Revan frowned slightly when he saw the two children who returned later than expected.
“I just thought you guys just ran away. Why are you so late? Where the hell did you do it?”
It was inevitable that the two brothers would be late as they met Rockefeller in the middle and had time to bargain again with market merchants.
Revan was slightly angered, and Andrew stepped forward in place of Joshua, who was still panting.
“That’s it. On the way, I happened to meet a flock of wild dogs. really sorry.”
“what? Did you meet wild dogs?”
Revan, surprised, lifted his stern expression and gave him a worried look.
“Where are you hurt? Even if they were wild dogs, wouldn’t it be dangerous if they were grouped together?”
“it’s okay. It was because I was thinking of throwing a stone while holding it. And the wild dogs here are afraid of people, so they avoid them. Still, I was careful because I didn’t know.”
Andrew patted the food furoshiki as if to purify it.
“And we are not alone, are we? So I was more concerned about it. Everything here is safe.”
When I saw wild dogs, it was the children playing in the village who grabbed wooden sticks and jumped.
So, the wild dogs I met by chance were just excuses and not a threat.
But Revan, unaware of this, was still looking at the two children with concern.
“I’m glad nothing happened. Even wild dogs are dangerous if you touch them. Well done. There’s nothing wrong with being careful.”
“I don’t know if it’s too late for that.”
“It’s something you guys have to work harder tomorrow. Don’t worry too much about that.”
After a while, Revan opened the bag of ingredients that the two children had been whining.
confirmation was needed.
But I had a strange feeling.
It seemed that the amount of food was strangely less than usual.
‘Something… … Does it look smaller than usual? Is it just a feeling?’
When I took out the tea ingredients and counted them one by one, it was clearly visible that the amount was less than usual.
“Guys, why is the amount so small than usual? You guys haven’t touched this, have you?”
If Joshua had swiped a few ingredients as he had initially thought, he might have made a mistake while still young.
However, regardless of Le Van’s suspicions, he had deceived him in a different way, so Andrew, who faced him, was free to go out.
It also had a steel plate on its face.
“Yes? why? What’s wrong?”
“Doesn’t the amount of food here seem to be a little lacking? We order ingredients every day, so why is the amount of ingredients less than yesterday? Oddly enough, it seems to be lacking a little bit, did you not peek at a few here?”
“Is it possible?”
Joshua, who was watching this, also came forward.
“We never touched it! Really.”
“Then why is the amount of food less than usual? The money I gave is the same, but the amount of ingredients has decreased slightly.”
Andrew snapped his shichimi and asked.
“Is everything like that? We only found fresh ingredients and bought them from various vendors.”
Although the amount of ingredients has decreased unknowingly and unknowingly, not all ingredients are like that.
Some of the ingredients were the same as before, and others were given so little that they could be seen.
“It’s not like that, but some of them seem to be lacking a lot. Guys, did your uncle definitely warn you? You must never cheat.”
Andrew, who even slapped his hands, came out and started acting like he was looking at the ingredients he brought.
“Hey, why is this happening? Did you really give a little? We sometimes go to the market to shop. I really did give it a little less, just like you said.”
“Where do you guys dare to take the shichimi? Do you really want to scold your uncle?”
“no! We really took what the market vendors gave us. I can swear this to the sky.”
“Are you telling me to believe it now?”
“Yes! Is it true?”
As Revan crossed his arms and blew his nostrils out, Andrew stepped out to calm him down.
“We are really innocent. Did you really bring it exactly as the market vendors gave it to you?”
“Of course, you can’t prove it, right?”
“Proof, of course!”
Revan was slightly perplexed by the unexpected words.
“what? Can you prove it?”
“Yes! Of course it does! We are innocent.”
“I saw that when we bought these ingredients at the market, they said we had to bring them to the mercenary camp and asked for the freshest and best ingredients, right? Even when I see it, for that amount of money, they don’t give me this much money. On the contrary, if the rural people were generous and cared for them more, they would have taken care of them. Do you think the merchants gave a small amount of this as a part of it? There is a story that mercenaries have a lot of money.”
Joshua, who was watching, came forward and helped.
“Is it possible that the mayor’s uncles gave me less money just because the mercenaries had a lot of money? We only asked for something fresh, right?”
“I think so?”
“under… … Rockefeller hyung said that mercenary men have a lot of money, is it because of that?”
Revan, who was watching quietly, glared at his children with wide open eyes.
‘I do not know. Maybe it’s a lie or maybe it’s not.’
“Then let’s do this. Only tomorrow, this uncle will put a colleague here, so buy it exactly like this for the same money. If you’re right, his market vendors must have hit us in the eye.”
Those words gave Andrew and Joshua great relief in their hearts.
anyway the result will be the same.
Revan looked at the result in front of me and put on a look of disbelief.
‘Is it almost the same? So the niggas in that market hit us in the eye? Is that so?’
“Hey, did you follow along and see?”
When Revan asked his fellow mercenary who had followed the children, he nodded without a word.
As the children said, it seems that the merchants in the market have opened their eyes to them.
“Are we right? We did not cheat!”
“We are only guilty of buying it from the market! You are so innocent!”
As Andrew and Joshua fired with equal momentum, Levan had nothing more to say.
“under… … These bastard merchants dare to hit us in the eye? We make some money, right?”
The rumors that the mercenaries were touching money seemed to have spread to the market.
Besides, they weren’t all grown-ups, and they had the kids run errands, so it was starting to make sense to some extent that the shrewd market merchants had their eyes on them.
“… … I’m sorry for everything. I misunderstood you.”
At the end of Levan, Andrew and Joshua could be relieved at the same time.
“it’s okay. It could be, what?”
“Yes! We’re fine! So, can I keep bringing it like this in the future?”
Mutual trust is the lifeblood of a transaction.
Since that trust was kept, there was no reason for Levan to cut the deal with his two children.
“Sure. Please don’t be so good in the future.”
Let me know what you think!
