MTL – 50

10. Faith creates wealth (3)

After the conversation, the two appeared again, and the young lord, who had been sitting in his seat until now with an uncomfortable look, opened his mouth.

“So, can I borrow 5,000 talents?”

The lord, who needed quite a lot of money due to the circumstances, was determined to borrow a lot at this time.

He gave up all his advice from his father and started looking for a way to live.

If the borrowed amount was too large to cause problems later, then he was going to use his power very actively.

He himself was the owner of this land.

Even if the borrowed amount is large, what will a mere banco trader do to himself?

“I’m really sorry to keep you waiting.”

“It’s okay. Rather, I’d like to hear an answer. Can’t we just say that it’s a story that didn’t exist now?”

“Oh, no.”

“Then you can borrow 5,000 talents right now, right?”

good guts too

No matter what the circumstances, he thinks of taking gold coins that are several dozen times the amount he normally borrows.

“Are you going to borrow 5,000 talents?”

“Why? I don’t know what the estate will be like right now, but I need that much money.”

“It seems that you are borrowing more than you normally borrow… … .”

“Are there any problems?”

“It’s not that I don’t know the will of the Lord, but… … .”

Carter looked into the lord’s eyes and continued speaking.

“The amount to borrow this time is very large. I’m worried that you’ll get into trouble after borrowing 5,000 talents, not just a few hundred talents.”

The lord’s gaze flew toward Carter like a blade and pierced it.

“Look. Do you not believe me? I am the owner of this land.”

“Oh, no. How can I not trust the Lord?”

“Then you can just lend it to me. There are so many things to say.”

Youngjoo continued with a look of displeasure.

“Who would think I was just wasting money here. I am not such a shameless person.”

“Will the lord take away my money? I didn’t mean it that way… … .”

“stop. If you can lend it to me, don’t say anything, just lend it to me. Things are urgent now. I don’t have time to play around like this.”

When the lord had finished speaking, the lord smiled, and Carter was able to read some of the unclean thoughts in his smile.

In the past, there must have been someone who smiled like that at himself like a lord.

‘It’s exactly the same as that guy back then. At first, I wanted to repay it well, but at some point I borrowed a large amount of money and went diving. Even now thinking about how hard it was to find him, my teeth tremble.’

In Carter’s experience, not all bad debtors were bad debtors to begin with.

They, too, were once good debtors with good credit.

Then, things change at some point and they suddenly become bad debtors.

“Hmm… … .”

By this time Carter felt he needed Rockefeller.

Although he had been through everything before and after childbirth, it was because only his assistant, Rockefeller, was able to make fun of his three tongues skillfully in this situation.

Then Rockefeller, acting quickly, suddenly intervened between them.

“As the situation is, I think the 5,000 talents that the lord said can be borrowed without any problems.”

Rockefeller’s sudden interruption was not very welcome, but Carter’s procrastinating reply was blunt and there was no reason for the lord to dislike Rockefeller.

“Yeah, your assistant is better than the stuffy you. Can you lend me?”

“Yes, of course, I can lend you. Who dares to borrow it, and will we refuse it?”

At those words, Yeongju gave a satisfied expression.

“Good to hear.”

“Lord, is it 5,000 talents?”

“Aren’t you going to borrow more from there anyway?”

“no. If you need more, I am willing to lend you more there.”


The lord and Carter were surprised at the same time.

The lord was surprised that there was more hidden money in this banco, while Carter thought so.

‘What nonsense is that? Will you lend me another 5,000 talents?’

Rockefeller’s words were not impossible because he was making and lending money that he didn’t have anyway, but Carter’s words, who acted too daringly, had no choice but to make Carter’s heart even more dazed.

At this time, Young-ju erased his satisfied expression and wrinkled his expression again.

Then his gaze became a blade again and flew to Carter.

“Hey, how many gold coins are you hiding? Did you have so many gold coins that you could lend them more than 5,000 talents?”

The lord, unaware of the fact that he was making and lending gold coins that did not exist, thought so and pressured Carter, who suddenly became a liar and reflexively waved his hand.

“Oh, no. Not like that.”

Carter’s gaze changed terribly and he flew to Rockefeller who had said the wrong thing, and then Rockefeller laughed and set out to rectify the situation.

“Lord, that’s not it. The only amount of gold we can lend you is the 5,000 talents that Uncle Carter personally owns.”

“Then where are you going to borrow it?”

If rumors spread that the goldsmith had secretly lent other people’s money other than his own, the feudal lord had no choice but to be held accountable for the crime.

So Rockefeller was to ask the lord for his understanding in advance in case that situation would come later.

Let me know what you think!
