“It’s fine to hire you guys.” Tate took a sip of the mead and thought slowly, “But this price…”
Delicious Wind Goose was sitting calmly in front of him with two swords on his back.
Recently, he always felt that sooner or later, he would have five swords behind him.
“The price is negotiable, Your Excellency.” Delicious Wind Goose smiled, “To be honest, I’m not afraid of you lowering the price. After all, we are on the same journey. As long as you can keep it a secret, it’s still profitable for us even if the price is meager. Shelley’s territory is really not dangerous. I’m here for a long-term business, and I won’t take advantage of you.”
“Huh, the way you speak doesn’t make you a good businessman now…” Caravan Master Tate, who had the same hairstyle as Delicious Wind Goose, smiled when he heard those words. He spoke with a strange dialect, “How can you show your cards at the beginning?”
Delicious Wind Goose laughed, exuding a calm and reliable temperament, “Hahaha! Those mercenaries will try to fool you at this time, like how dangerous is this section of the road with many potential threats ahead. They can’t wait to make it seem like there’s going to be a war here to fool those who don’t know anything.
“But I don’t think you’re someone who will be easily fooled. You know the ropes.” Delicious Wind Goose laughed in flattery.
The two smiled and looked at each other.
Under the warm light, the two bright heads twinkled.
After all, the players’ group followed the caravan into the city.
That was to say, the caravan they followed must have a checkpoint or a sorting center in the royal capital. So they were definitely not like those caravans running expeditions at the outskirts with no knowledge of the royal capital’s situation at all.
In this case, trying to fool them with the excuse of “Jiu Er was a runaway miss from the capital” would be too risky.
What if the other party casually asked “Which family was it?” How would Delicious Wind Goose answer? Or if a young lady in the royal capital ran away from home, what if the caravan wanted to send Jiu Er back?
It was too easy to get into trouble.
So, Delicious Wind Goose simply changed his approach.
It was no longer three people escorting the eldest lady home.
Instead, the background setting was two mercenaries escorting two priests from the north to the capital. Also, it was common knowledge that the Silver Sire’s priest had no personal wealth. The mercenaries had acquired the payment after receiving the church’s quest.
Now, the team planned to make some extra money. While they were escorting the two priests, they planned to escort the caravan into the capital together. With that, they settle the church’s quest as well. Since the priests were also in convoy, they had emergency treatments once they were in danger.
Of course, since the team had two Transcended and two Silver Sire priests, it wasn’t unfair to charge some fees despite the short trip.
This plan incited the viewers to spam many comments on the bullet text.
Delicious Wind Goose and the others didn’t realize at the beginning they still paid for the carriage, honestly. After they gradually realized the situation, they started free-riding in their journey. By the end of the day, when they were almost at the capital, they even planned to earn some money.
The most outrageous thing was that Delicious Wind Goose had seemingly negotiated a deal!
“Come on, brother. Try this… This is the mead concocted by a wizard. You can’t buy it outside the capital circle.” Tate smiled and poured Delicious Wind Goose a glass of golden mead amiably.
The offered mead wasn’t too much. The amount was just right for one sip.
Tate said casually, “Delicious Wind Goose, right? That name is a bit hard to pronounce.”
If you know what the name means, it won’t be. Delicious Wind Goose complained in his heart.
Luckily, when these people pronounced the players’ names, they were all phonetic translations.
Otherwise, the Child should be the most unlucky among the players.
“It’s quite complicated to say my name. You can call me Goose or Old Goose. That’s what my friends call me.” Delicious Wind Goose took a sniff and replied casually.
Judging from the aroma of the mead, the alcohol concentration should be pretty high.
Being a player, Delicious Wind Goose wasn’t afraid of poisoning.
So, he didn’t have any restraint as he raised the glass and took a sip.
The taste is surprisingly good. It’s sweet and mellow.
“What kind of alcohol is this?” Delicious Wind Goose couldn’t help but ask.
“It’s called [Honeylip], and it’s a mead made by the wizards at Black Tower, so its production is quite limited.” Tate said cheerfully, “In addition, it can be used for beauty and aphrodisiac, so it is in great demand. The price is always high, at least five pounds.”
Hearing this, Delicious Wind Goose smacked his tongue.
Then, did that sip just now cost about a dozen of silver coins?
Thinking of this, he felt that this mead tasted better.
After I get offline, I have to buy some of those meads and enjoy myself…
Seeing Delicious Wind Goose still yearning for it, Tate smiled and poured half a glass of the mead to Delicious Wind Goose, “Old Goose, I supposed you’re not from Noah.”
“You’re right.” Delicious Wind Goose nodded, “But I had lived in the Noah Kingdom for a long time before I became Transcended.”
“Then, where is your hometown?” Tate asked curiously.
Delicious Wind Goose didn’t answer, just pouted to the east.
Caravan Master Tate heard those words and guessed, “Austerian? No, you don’t look like them… Are you from the United Kingdom?”
“Why don’t you guess that I’m from the Papal Kingdom?”
“The Papal Kingdom — Ha!” The corners of Tate’s mouth rose when he heard the words, and he almost laughed out loud.
But he pondered a little, “Well… it’s still possible. So, refugees from the Papal Kingdom?”
What do you mean by the Papal Kingdom refugees?
Hearing the novel and unfamiliar words, Delicious Wind Goose jotted it down in his heart.
But Delicious Wind Goose just smiled mysteriously and said nothing.
The information that I manage to probe is quite enough.
Let’s sign the contract first so as not to stir up any trouble.
Tate was silent at this moment.
He subconsciously tapped his index finger on the table, sinking into deep thoughts.
“Hey, Old Goose.” He suddenly touched his bald head and sat up.
The breath of alcohol filled the room with Tate’s long exhalation.
Caravan Master Tate squinted at Delicious Wind Goose and lowered his voice, “Would you like to make more money?”
Delicious Wind Goose was slightly surprised, “What?”
“Help me smuggle some goods.”
Tate whispered, “What do you think of this mead?”
“They’re great. Mellow and sweet… What’s the matter?” Delicious Wind Goose replied subconsciously.
When Caravan Master Tate heard those words, he squinted his eyes and smiled.
“Brother…” He lowered his voice and said in a low voice, “But those are counterfeit products.”
“Counterfeit products?” Delicious Wind Goose was startled.
Bro, why do you tell me this?
Are you selling fake meads? Is it fine for you to reveal it to me?
“You should sign the contract first, and then we’ll go into details,” said Tate. Then, he brought the contract to Delicious Wind Goose.
Delicious Wind Goose looked at it, and a glimmering panel appeared in his vision.
The system directly extracted the content in the contract and listed them down for him.
Seeing the contents of the contract, Delicious Wind Goose’s pupils shrank slightly.
Did I accidentally land on a gold mine?
