What would you do if the two of you had more conversations?
Since I had already heard the story of 5,000 talents, I was planning to borrow 5,000 talents even if I died.
“I see. Instead, keep it short. I am not that patient.”
“thank you. I will be back soon.”
Carter, who was sitting apart from Rockefeller, was conscious of the lord who was not far away, and with a small but sharp voice, pushed Rockefeller.
“What were you thinking of saying that? 5,000 talents in the world? We don’t even have that kind of money in our hands.”
“Why? I’ve already said everything about lending you money you don’t have, right?”
“And now the golden opportunity has come to lend me the money I don’t have. Have you been like that before? No one now needs that much money to borrow even the money they don’t have. But what do you see now? Then, of course, you have to borrow it.”
Rockefeller re-emphasized the following words.
“Is this an opportunity?”
“But how the hell did you lend us money we didn’t have?”
It sounded pathetic.
Rockefeller looked at him with a sullen expression.
“I think I’ve explained it enough before, but have you already forgotten?”
Of course I heard Rockefeller’s explanation.
Of course, I was worried about him.
“I had to listen.”
“Uncle, to be honest, have you ever seriously considered what I said?”
It was within the common sense of Carter to lend out the gold coins he had and even the gold coins he had entrusted to them.
But making and lending even the gold coins that Rockefeller was talking about was actually completely beyond his common sense, and Carter only understood it theoretically and had no guts to implement it.
Because that was a way of making money that was completely outside of his common sense.
“Actually, there was nothing more to think about. I just thought it was nonsense. Isn’t that just the corner theory? Lyon doesn’t lend like that. Are you going to make a loan that doesn’t exist in the world? It’s crazy.”
“Did you really think that was nonsense?”
“Are you sure you’ve never done it before and you know what it will be?”
At those words, Rockefeller called to him with a serious expression like never before.
“Mister Carter. Have I ever been wrong even once since I got a job here?”
“Something like that… … There was none.”
“Weren’t you? Instead, your income has increased significantly, hasn’t it?”
“That’s it… … .”
“Do you know why that happened?”
“I don’t know. Maybe I was just lucky.”
“Are you lucky? Well, maybe you were lucky. But this is a talent.”
“Yes, it is a talent. There are people who use swords well in the world, people who know how to use magic. Even people with very good dexterity, or even those who only run well. Everyone was born with great talent. Of course, I was born with that talent for making money.”
“Uncle, given that I was born with such a talent, I have to make and lend money that I do not have unconditionally. That way you can make a lot of money.”
“… … .”
“I can assure you, if you do what I think this time, you will make a lot of money. If not, I’ll quit my job here. What would a guy with no talent do if he was left with a guy like Uncle? It makes no sense.”
I couldn’t agree to lending money I didn’t even have, but I couldn’t afford to lose a good assistant like this.
Carter went out to convince Rockefeller to quit his job.
“No, don’t stop. Can’t we just go on a regular basis just this one time?”
“What is that normal?”
“What? They just want to lend you the gold coins you have in hand, as you have always done. Don’t even create gold coins that don’t exist.”
Rockefeller calmly shook his head at those words.
Even a person who expresses disapproval right now will have a different opinion when he earns a formidable amount of money.
Knowing this, Rockefeller decided to push forward.
Because the result will change his mind anyway.
“no. never. If you want to keep me by your side, you have to make a decision too. Will you trust me again this time? Or just stick with the old way and lose me.”
Rockefeller gave strength to his eyes, forcing him to make a choice.
“The decision is yours.
“Huh… … this guy.”
At Rockefeller’s suggestion to choose one of the two, Carter looked quite embarrassed.
What kind of assistant do you have?
‘What is this guy really doing? You want me to lend you money that doesn’t exist in the world?’
If that boy wasn’t Dorai, what would it be?
What the hell did you mean by thinking like that?
‘I do not know. What the hell am I doing and working with?’
Carter, who was wasting time with only a deep sigh, reluctantly agreed.
He decided to believe what Chuck Rockefeller said.
It’s been running well so far, and if it runs well without any problems, you’ll be able to make a lot of money, just like Rockefeller said.
“To be honest, I don’t know. If you weren’t good at your job, I probably wouldn’t have allowed it. It is beyond my understanding.”
Rockefeller smiled at that.
“Mister Carter, don’t over complicate things, just look at the results. Even if you don’t know, I’m sure you’ll be satisfied.”
“Yeah, it would be. Unless there are real problems.”
As he gave him a slightly worried look, Rockefeller gave him a confident expression.
“I assure you, there will never be any problems with this. Surely there will be people who eat like this. If it’s not in this world, it’s in another world.”
Let me know what you think!
