Chapter 496 – Slave Market
Although merchants have only entered Golden Island for a month, the state of the place can only be described as hot. Pirates, Merchants, as well as major influences have come here to mingle.
This month's development was only the first explosion of Golden Island. It would continue to grow, and over time, the popularity of this place would become stronger and stronger.
At this time, Zhao Hai wasn't already on the island. He has now returned to Carson City. This was because he needed to take care of an important matter for the Buda Clan.
In the past, Laura and the others have discussed the possibility of them constructing a castle on the area around Carson City. This would solidify the Buda Clan's status on the capital. However, because of Golden Island, this matter has been placed at the back of their minds.
But they can't put this matter aside for too long. So they went and asked Charlie, Jason, and the others for help to see which hills around the city was up for grabs. When they find a place, then they would make their move immediately.
Charlie and the others were naturally willing to help. However, after the passing of years, all of the hills around Carson City was already occupied. Even when there was a suitable place, they either had a bad environment, or they were too low. Not to say Zhao Hai, even Charlie and the others wouldn't like it. They surely wouldn't let Zhao Hai claim those hills.
Originally, Laura suggested that they occupy Robert Family's fort. But Zhao Hai didn't agree since they were the ones who eliminated the Robert Family. If they occupy their fort, then that would really look very strange.
Charlie and the others didn't agree to it as well. But after a long time, they still weren't able to find a place. This made Charlie and Jason feel apologetic to Zhao Hai, he asked for their help but they were unable to deliver.
Then, Charlie finally thought that since they couldn't find a suitable hill, they they might as well find someone who were willing to sell.
But after checking for several days, Charlie still wasn't able to find people who were willing. This made Charlie feel bad, Jason as well, he even felt more sorry than Charlie. But there was no other way, all people who lived on the vicinity were all Great Clans. All of these clans have their own businesses, so all of them are doing very well. Charlie and Jason cannot just make them leave in account for Zhao Hai. It wasn't worth offending these people just for such a paltry reason.
Zhao Hai didn't think too much of it, almost two months had passed since God's Grace Day. Golden Island has been doing very well, spring had also arrived at Aksu Empire, which means that spring would be arriving at the Prairie. As long as spring arrives, he would be heading to the Prairie, then he wouldn't worry about constructing a fort anymore.
When Charlie and the others were about to give up, information suddenly came. The current owner of Lionheart’s fort was willing to sell.
Lionheart was Zhao Hai's first enemy on Rosen Empire. He also colluded with the Radiant Church before being killed by Zhao Hai. His family's fort was then occupied by a noble of the Rosen Empire.
Saying occupy wasn't excessive. This was because at that time, nobles were scrapping Lionheart's possessions. At that time, the fort was being sold for a cheap price so the noble decided to buy it. At the same time, since he bought it, he might as well occupy the place.
However, because of the Robert Family and the Engraved Ark, Carson City's atmosphere became tense. The eyes of Great Clans were very active regarding people with good relationships with the Robert Family. At this time, people went to investigate the noble who bought Lionheart's castle. This person was a Second Class Duke and he didn't have the power to have his own duchy. However, this person's fief wasn't small, moreover, he had a very good relationship with the Robert Family. His clan's emblem was a mad cow. This cow lacked one horn while its eyes were red with rage.
At this point, the Rosen Empire was very critical in looking for clans' emblems. In addition to finding friends of the Robert Clan, the empire was also looking for suspicious clan emblems.
When the investigation found that this noble and the Robert Family were very intimate, they immediately prepared to do a thorough investigation. However, when they came to do so, the nobleman's family suddenly vanished.
Overnight, all of the family members have left, they didn’t even take their precious things along with them. Even the servants stayed behind as well as their businesses. Only the family itself vanished, nobody remained.
This caused the entire Rosen Empire to be in a stir. For an entire clan to run like this, it clearly confirmed their status. The Imperial Clan immediately went and thoroughly searched their home. As a result, all of the family's documents were taken away. Since the family didn't take their valuables with them, the Rosen Empire became skeptical. The empire immediately issued an order to seize the family. However, all of them were already gone, no news was found about them.
As a result, their fort became empty. The Rosen Empire grabbed all of the servants and the people associated with the family and interrogated them. They wanted to ask them about the family, but the servants literally knew nothing at all.
Because of this, nothing was known, and the castle was left empty, which was a pity. Charlie and Jason were very happy when they knew about this, they knew that Grand Duke Lionheart's fort was very well constructed. Now that the place was ownerless, it would be great if Zhao Hai bought it.
Also, because the family ran away in a hurry, all of the precious things in the castle weren't taken away. Although the gold and silver items were taken away by the Imperial Clan, the fort was still left well equipped. Therefore, Charlie immediately told Zhao Hai to buy it.
Zhao Hai also knew that even if he already has Iron Mountain Fort, he still needed a fort on Carson City for the benefit of the Buda Clan's face. At the same time, it would also indicate that the Buda Clan has considered themselves as people of the Rosen Empire.
The matter was quickly completed under Charlie's operation. In the end, Zhao Hai bought the hill as well as the castle for a price of 10 million gold coins.
After acquiring the fort, Zhao Hai immediately sent a construction team over to modify the fort. At the very least, he needed to have the emblem changed, there were also some little things inside that Zhao Hai wished to change.
Zhao Hai returned to Carson City for this matter. But when the fort's construction was underway, he assigned the undead under Cai'er's supervision. Then Zhao Hai took Laura and the others to Carson City's slave market.
Carson City's slave market wasn't inside the city, but in a valley not too far. The entire mountain valley was a large slave market.
It was the first time that Zhao Hai had come here. Now that Kun was in Golden Island along with Laura's people, Zhao Hai didn't worry about anything. He lead Laura and the others to come to the slave market. When he goes to the Prairie, he would get 100 thousand slaves. However, 100 thousand slaves who were all Beastmen wasn't good. Because of this, Zhao Hai decided to buy some human slaves as well.
The valley's entrance wasn't very wide, giving people a hard time because only two carriages can pass side by side. There weren't any people that can be seen on the entrance, there weren't any structures as well. Just by looking at it, one might even mistake it as an ordinary mountain valley.
However, the moment Zhao Hai's carriage entered the valley, he immediately became surprised. In the one year that he has been in Ark Continent, this was the first time that he saw this kind of slave market. He thought that this slave market would be very dirty and very chaotic. Only when he entered did he understand that he was wrong and that he was thinking ridiculously.
This slave was neither dirty nor chaotic. In contrast, this slave market looks even more cleaner than any ordinary market. It wasn't as crowded as ordinary markets as well. The shops here were well constructed and also had a very pleasant facade.
Looking at the 21 three-story buildings, Zhao Hai cannot really connect this place with a slave market. After staring for some time, Zhao Hai turned to Megan and said, "Megan, are you sure that you're not mistaken? Is this really the slave market?"
Megan smiled and said, "Of course I'm not wrong, this is indeed the slave market. I came here before because I'm curious."
Zhao Hai nodded, then he looked around before he murmured, "This is a beautiful place, who would've thought that it would deal with filthy transactions."
Laura and the others didn't say anything, all of them were natives of Ark Empire so they didn't have as much of a dislike for slaves as Zhao Hai. But seeing the happy expressions of the slaves who had become commoners back at Iron Mountain Fort, they couldn't help but also develop a dislike for the slave trade.
Their horse carriage stopped in front of a shop's door. When Zhao Hai and the others walked down from their carriage, someone from the shop immediately came to welcome them. The man looked very decent, he was tall and wore a merchant's suit without anything else on his body. But Zhao Hai didn't underestimate this person because Megan had told him that almost all of the people who dealt with the slave business were nobles. The bigger the slave merchant, the more powerful the noble above them. Even small slave merchants would still have formidable powers behind them. Because of this, nobody dared to look down upon these people.
When this merchant saw Zhao Hai's carriage, his eyes turned bright. He immediately wore a welcoming face as he bowed to Zhao Hai, "Merchant Ren has seen Mariquis Zhao Hai."
Zhao Hai stared, he looked at the Merchant and said, "You know me?"
The merchant smiled and said, "How can I not know of Marquis Zhao Hai. This small merchant has always heard of Marquis Zhao Hai's name. If I don't recognize the Marquis even after seeing the Buda Clan emblem, then I might as well have by eyes gouged out."
Chapter 497 – Artisan Slaves
Zhao Hai looked at Ren, then he showed a faint smile and said, "You really have good eyes. You should do your best to keep it." Then he was led into the shop by Ren, the others also followed.
After having entered the shop, Zhao Hai stared. The inside didn't look like what a shop should be, one could even call this a living room. The ornaments and decorations inside was commonly seen on living rooms, it wouldn't be bad if it was one.
Ren immediately asked Zhao Hai and the others to sit down. Zhao Hai didn't hesitate and just sat down just as Ren presented him with tea. Ren just stood respectful as the asked Zhao Hai, "Sir Marquis, what can this little one do for you?"
Zhao Hai looked Ren and smiled faintly, "What else? I'm here to buy some slaves, both men and women. I have just recently bought a castle and want to place some slaves to maintain it."
Ren immediately nodded and said, "Alright, how many slaves does sir Marquis need? How many males and females?"
Zhao Hai waved his hand and said, "Why are you asking these things? Lead me to see them first, I want to look at their quality. If they're good, then I would buy a large number. If they aren't up to par, then I wouldn't want to buy even one."
Ren smiled and said, "Then Marquis, please, follow me. I believe there won't be any shop in this valley who would sell low quality goods. Because of the valley's vicinity to Carson City, the guests here are all great nobles, we wouldn't want to risk our business, so we certainly wouldn't sell substandard goods."
Zhao Hai waved his hand and said, "Talking is useless, go, go guide me." Ren complied and then led Zhao Hai to walk towards the back of the shop.
Right behind the shop was a very big cavern. There were large and small caves inside as well. These caves held people inside, the people only wore the simplest clothing on their bodies, just enough to cover important parts. The rest of their bodies were exposed.
Each cave had about 10 to 100 people in them, men and women were separated. It was only here that the face of the slave market was seen, they didn't seem like people at all, they were more like beasts waiting to be sold.
Zhao Hai looked at these slaves, he has to admit, these slaves were really very good. They were all young people, and from their skin, one could see that they are all very healthy.
From their eyes, Zhao Hai can see that all of them were strictly trained. Their eyes were expressionless much like their faces, they looked just like Zhao Hai's undead. If it weren't for the fact that they were living, Zhao Hai might have thought that all of them were undead.
Zhao Hai looked at these slaves calmly. He was currently a noble, he couldn't just lose heart in front of these slaves, otherwise he would be looked down by the other nobles.
With the state of the continent, nobles wouldn't lose their hearts when dealing with slaves. Because of this, Zhao Hai also acted as though he was calm.
Looking at the slaves, Zhao Hai nodded and then turned to Ren, "Good, Mister Ren, these are very good. Alright, I'll go take 200 men and 200 women. These people should be enough for my castle."
Ren nodded immediately and said, "This is not a problem, Sir Marquis. You can take them any time you want. If Sir Marquis wants us to deliver them on your doorstep, as long as we have your address, then we can send these slaves as soon as possible."
Zhao Hai nodded, then turned to Ren and said, "Ren, does your shop some specially skilled slaves? Like Artisan slaves, or som battle salves? As long as you have those slaves, then I also want a lot of them."
When Ren heard Zhao Hai, his eyes couldn't help but turn bright, he quickly replied, "I invite the Marquis to the living room, this is not the place to talk." Zhao Hai nodded and then returned to the living room. Ren went to give a person some commands before he served Zhao Hai a new cup of tea.
To be honest, Ren was initially quite disappointed, 200 male and 200 female slaves can only be considered to be a small scale transaction in a shop like this. Altogether, it only costs 300-400 gold coins, their shop can only make a little amount of money. Average nobles would buy slaves in transactions that involved thousands to tens of thousands of gold coins. Some transactions even make it to to a hundred thousand gold coins. Compared to Zhao Hai's small transaction, it's certainly not worth mentioning.
But when he heard that Zhao Hai wanted some artisan slaves and battle slaves, Ren became happy. Artisan slaves and battle slaves are several times more expensive than average slaves, some were even several hundred times more expensive.
If Zhao Hai wanted dozens of artisan slaves and battle slaves, it certainly wouldn't be called a small-scale transaction. But he didn't believe that Zhao Hai would buy so much, all of the artisans and battle slaves on their shop was worth millions of gold coins; such number wasn't small. Average nobles wouldn't spend that much money on slaves.
After Zhao Hai and the others arrived at the living room and sat down, Ren immediately went to Zhao Hai's side and said, "Sir Marquis, we also have some artisan and battle slaves at the shop. But sir must know that the price of these artisan and battle slaves are very high. And these include the most ordinary ones among them."
Zhao Hai nodded and then looked at Ren and said, "Ren, I don't care about the price as long as they are worth it. I believe you know about the fact that I own Golden Island, what I need there the most were artisan slaves, we can discuss their prices. Also, if you have slaves that are whole families, I want them as well. Very young slaves are also good, but I want a discount on them."
Ren understood Zhao Hai as he nodded, "The Marquis' words certainly made this one feel relieved. This shop has a lot of good quality battle slaves as well as artisan slaves. Artisan slaves are have many types according to which production branch they are skilled in. And their prices depend on how skillful they are. We also have a lot of battle slaves with varying strengths, the more strong the slave, the more expensive."
Zhao Hai nodded and said, "Let's go look at the artisan slaves first."
Ren nodded, then went to one side of the living room and took a big book from a bookshelf. Then he placed the book in front of Zhao Hai as he said, "Sir Marquis, this has all the names of our shop's artisan slaves. Their situations are present as well, Sir Marquis can take a look."
Zhao Hai nodded and then carefully took the book and read its contents. The artisan slaves in Ren's shop were very good, all of them numbered more than 200 people. A lot of them were carpenters and masons, their speciality was also written. Quite a few of these slaves were blacksmiths and the like. What made Zhao Hai the most surprised was that there were actually two artisans that can brew alcohol, there was also one Potion master present.
Zhao Hai placed the book down and looked at Ren and said, "You really have a potion master slave? How can a potion master become a slave?"
Ren smiled and said, "Sir's eyes are really as bright as torches, immediately noticing the problem at a glance. This potion master isn't an ordinary person. He used to be a fairly famous potion master, but later in his life, he developed a highly toxic potion that had exploded, spreading its effects outside of his laboratory and had killed a lot of people. Because of this, he was demoted into becoming a slave, we had spent quite a lot of money in order to buy him."
ZHao Hai nodded, he wasn't very excited about this potion master. This was because he already has the Processing machine to make potions for him. If he wants a potion, he can just have the machine make a potion that was even better than ones that a potion master can make.
What Zhao Hai was interested about were the other slaves. Except 30 of them, the others had their own families with them, one of them was even a family of three generations.
Zhao Hai handed the book over to Laura and the others. Laura wasn't polite and took the book and scanned through it. Meanwhile, Zhao Hai's action made Ren surprised, but when she remembered who Laura was, he became calm again.
In Carson City, it wasn't only Zhao Hai who had become famous, Laura and the others acquired some fame as well. Laura and Megan held the most fame. There was no need to mention Megan, she was one of the twin flowers of the Imperial Capital, it was impossible for any nobles who didn't know of her. Because of Laura's relationship with Zhao Hai, people went and had her background investigated. When they received their reports, they found out how formidable Laura was in the past.
She was a flower of Purcell Duchy. She started from scratch and managed to establish her own business presence in the duchy. She even managed to become the most powerful merchant of the duchy at one time.
Even the not too famous Meg has become famous right now. Meg was in herself a talented mage. This young and was already a 6th rank Water Mage. This basically meant that her future achievements would be limitless. Because of this, her reputation wasn't any lower than Zhao Hai's other fiance's.
Laura carefully read the register and then nodded before handing it over to Megan. Megan took a look and then handed it over to Meg who also scanned through its contents. Zhao Hai looked at the three, then all of them made a nod.
Zhao Hai turned to Ren and said, "Ren, I want all of these slaves in this book. I also want those 400 slaves I mentioned before. Moreover, do you have some young slave? I want to buy some to train myself."
Ren stared, then he became overjoyed, he didn't expect Zhao Hai to take all of these slaves. This was surely a huge transaction, the overall price of these 200 slaves was around 200 thousand. The potion master alone was worth 20,000 gold coins.
A transaction worth 200 thousand was a huge business for even a shop like them. Ren quickly said, "We don't have child slaves here because this was just a place to sell them. Slaves would only be sent here after being trained. Only artisan slaves who have their families with them have children included."
Chapter 498 – Wedding
Zhao Hai nodded and said, "I want some child slaves, go help me find some. The price is open for discussion."
Ren nodded, "No matter how many slaves Sir Marquis wants, we can certainly provide."
Zhao Hai nodded, then he thought for a moment before saying, "Golden Island needs a lot of slaves right now. Those 400 slaves are only for my fort in Carson City. I still haven't bought any for Golden Island. You go see whether you can provide me some young slaves. I also need some old and experienced ones, I have some facilities that needed managing."
Ren couldn't help but hold Zhao Hai in high esteem. General clients would only buy some young and strong slaves. Those who would buy old ones were very rare. This was because those slaves have been so overworked that their bodies aren't very good anymore. Such slaves would only survive for only two years before dying. Because of that, nobody wanted to buy them.
From all of his years of selling slaves, Ren had come to know that these old slaves have its own uses. Although these old slaves cannot read, they had a lifetime of experience behind them. They understood situations that only an experienced person knows, like what disease a certain plant was suffering, the best time to plant, and there are even old slaves that can predict the weather. Those abilities are absolutely priceless.
But a lot of Nobles didn't know about this. It was even possible for those Nobles to have never been on their territory in their entire life, they simply cannot understand farming. There was a substantial difference in income between Nobles who have old slaves compared to those without.
It was unfortunate that this difference wasn't something that Nobles took note of. What they cared about was the strength of their slaves. It was because of this that they overexhaust their slaves and have them die an early death.
These old slaves were actually treasures. In Ren's eyes, these slaves should be more expensive than the younger ones. But it was a pity that nobles do not share his views. What they always see was a slave that wouldn't be able to live long. A lot of these old slaves just die miserable deaths.
Ren also understood why Zhao Hai wanted to buy some child slaves. These child slaves are very malleable. If they were allowed to learn some crafting skills, then their price value would increase by dozens of times. A lot of slave merchants do this method now. They would buy some child slaves and then find some artisan slaves to train them. When those child slaves grow , they would have learned a lot and would be sold at the price of artisan slaves. This would bring them a huge profit.
Zhao Hai buying slaves along with their families are also good as well. Ren had seen a lot of slaves who went crazy because they became separated from their families, so their handlers had no choice but to kill them. Slaves are people as well, Ren knew this, so he saw Zhao Hai's approach to be very agreeable.
Zhao Hai looked at Ren and then asked, "Ren? What's wrong?"
Ren recovered, then he shook his head hastily and said, "There's no problem. How many slaves does Sir Marquis want?"
Zhao Hai thought for a moment before saying, "A hundred thousand, having more isn't a problem, but make sure that there aren't less."
Ren became ecstatic, he immediately said, "Sir Marquis can be rest assured, as long as you give me a month to prepare, those hundred thousand slaves wouldn't be a problem. Do you want us to deliver those slaves to Golden Island for you?"
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, "When they are prepared, you send me a message at my fort. Then wait for my instruction before sending them there. Right, how much money do I need to give you?"
Ren nodded, then he went to the side and did some calculations before saying, "Sir Marquis, everything is 213 thousand gold coins. It would be fine if Sir Marquis paid 210 thousand gold coins, we can waive the three thousand."
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and then waved his hand as two crystal cards appeared. There were some markings on the cards, one showed 200 thousand while the other has 10 thousand. These cards were issued by banks and were commonly used by nobles.
These banks made this crystal cards with different denominations. All of them had special markings made by their banks and can be revealed as long as energy was provided. By doing this, one could see the authenticity of these cards.
Ren had been dealing with these cards all year round, he can distinguish between fake and real in one look. But authentication wasn't needed, Zhao Hai was famous, it would be impossible for him to use a fake crystal card.
Ren accepted the cards and said, "Marquis can be rest assured, we shall certainly provide good slaves. Do you want to see the artisan slaves?"
Zhao Hai shook his head and said, "No need, I believe that you won't deceive me. There aren't a lot of people in the continent that would dare to do so."
Ren felt his heart stop, he was sure that Zhao Hai wasn't joking. What he said was true, there won't be many people in this world who would dare deceive him. Those who dared to deceive him would have to face death. Even his backers wouldn't dare to offend Zhao Hai.
Ren immediately said, "Sir Marquis is cracking a joke. Our little store wouldn't be able to withstand your fury. Mister can be rest assured, I can assure you that our shop would certainly ensure the safety and security of your goods."
Zhao Hai nodded and said, "That's good. I'll go back first, I'll go look at your battle slaves in another time." Then he stood up and headed out.
They boarded their carriage outside and then headed out of the slave market. Laura looked at Zhao Hai and said, "Brother Hai, we bought a lot of slaves this time. I think we should inform Grandpa Green about it "
Zhao Hai nodded and said, "Rest assured, not only this matter, I will also talk to him about another important thing."
Laura looked at Zhao Hai, she was puzzled as she said, "What's that? Is there anything important matter left? We already bought the castle. As long as the renovations are finished, we can immediately move in. When that time comes, we can then hold a banquet. I think there's no other matter left."
Zhao Hai smiled faintly and said, "This matter must be taken care of, otherwise Grandpa Green would throw me into a pit of fire." Laura still didn’t understand what Zhao Hai meant. But seeing that Zhao Hai didn't want to say it, she didn't ask anymore.
Soon, they arrived at the fort. Zhao Hai already had the name Wild Dragon Castle prepared for the place. The flag that was raised also had the Buda Clan's Wild Dragon Insignia. This along with the name of the fort, people would certainly know that this place belonged to the Buda Clan.
At this time , there were a lot of undead in the castle being busy. They were carrying the final renovations of the castle. This was Carson City, the capital of Rosen Empire, the place with the largest distribution center in the continent. Because of this, it was very convenient to buy anything, so Zhao Hai was able to confidently do renovations on the fort. He was also preparing to have Cai'er place one of her branches on Wild Dragon Castle.
When noon came, Ren sent people to deliver more than 600 slaves to Wild Dragon Castle. Zhao Hai had some of these slaves go to Iron Mountain Fort under the leadership of Rockhead and Blockhead. He had the two of them handle the newcomers to do specific jobs at Wild Dragon Castle.
When it came to managing slaves, Blockhead and Rockhead already had a few tricks. They had already been assigned by Zhao Hai to do some management tasks before. And after having them study at the school, the two should be able to handle the slaves without a problem.
Most importantly, both of them spent a long time with Zhao Hai. They understood his habits as well as what he liked. The 400 slaves that were left in the castle needed to be managed well, otherwise Zhao Hai wouldn't feel comfortable in living there.
The artisan slaves were easier to manage. Zhao Hai directly transferred them to Iron Mountain Fort since the fort badly needed people like them right now. However, the Potion Master was referred by Zhao Hai to Shun's mother. Shun's mother studies potion and that potion master just happens to be an expert in it. Zhao Hai wanted to the slave to teach Shun's Mother.
After having arranged these people, Zhao Hai went to the Space where Green and the others were waiting for him. Green and the others knew that Zhao Hai was busy with the slaves, therefore they didn't go and disturb him. After all, they fully supported Zhao Hai's methods.
After the group arrived at the villa's living room, Zhao Hai turned to Green and said, "Grandpa Green, I went to see you today for two matters. The first one was to tell you that I had bought 100 thousand Human slaves. They aren't artisan slaves, just regular ones. After they arrive, I want to have them farm on the Black Wasteland. I have a lot to do in the future, so I won't have enough time to do farming. We should make a village for them outside the fort."
Green nodded and said, "Alright, that's good. But although we already have 200 thousand people coming, I still think that they aren't enough to farm the Black Wasteland. I suggest the young master to have them forage on the land as well as raise some livestock. With this, we may have more income from having a ranch. If we don't do this, the big area of the Black Wasteland would be wasted."
Zhao Hai nodded and said, "That's a good idea. Before utilizing the whole area for farming, we might as well use the unused parts for rearing animals."
Green nodded as well then said, "The second matter?"
Zhao Hai took a deep breath, then he looked deeply at Laura and the others who were listening at the side before turning his head to Green and said, "Now that our Buda Clan's reputation has been established, as well as having our own castle and fief, I want to officially marry Laura and the others. Having them be my fiancees for too long will make people gossip."
Green stared, and also Kun as well as Laura and the others. They hadn't thought of this, the matters that they had been handling were too big recently, they have absolutely forgotten the marriage. Now that Zhao Hai opened the topic, they were suddenly left staring blankly.
After some time, Green recovered as he laughed and said, "Right, right, I also think it's time for young master's wedding to be pushed through. We have been very busy these days that I've completely forgotten about it. Good, good, I'll immediately go arrange it."
Kun was happy as well, Laura being somewhat of Zhao Hai's follower has hurt her reputation. However, Zhao Hai insisted that they should wait until the Buda Clan establishes themselves before carrying on to their marriage. Finally, the opportunity to do so has arrived.
Laura and the others were also happy , when Zhao Hai goes out, he can only introduce them as his fiancees, this made them feel a little bit uncomfortable. Now, it's time for them to be married.
Merine was also in the living room, she was naturally the happiest one in the room, she smiled and said, "Young Master, fantastic! We'll go and give respects to the ancestors and tell them the good news."
Zhao Hai smiled and said, "Alright, then it's all settled. Grandpa Green, Grandpa Kun, I need to ask you to help me prepare the invitations. I'll go to Grandpa Randolph tomorrow and ask him for help as well."
Green replied with a smile, "Alright. But Young Master, how long are you planning to prepare for this wedding?"
Zhao Hai understood what Green was saying, the latter wanted the date to be farther off. With this, they would be able to prepare the invitations properly as well as having the event more grand. However, Zhao Hai doesn't have much time right now, he turned to Green and said, "Grandpa Green, I want the ceremony to happen as soon as possible because I need to go the the Prairie. I also need to take care of the business with the merfolk."
Green thought for a moment and nodded, "Alright, spring is coming to the Prairie, it wouldn't be good if you head there late. Very well, we'll see to it that it happens as soon as possible. I think we should also discuss this matter with Randolph, in any case, we need to respect his opinion on this matter. Old Kun, what do you think?"
Kun nodded and smiled, "That's fine. I'll go tell Karen about this matter. Right, there should also be an invitation for the Markey Family. I'd like to see their reaction, if they dare act up, then they can't blame us for being impolite."
Green snorted and said, "If they dare, do they really think that the Buda Clan is the same as before? Let's see if they act unreasonably this time, hmph. We must make this wedding ceremony as grand as possible, let's make sure that all of the people in the continent gets to hear it."
Zhao Hai nodded and said, "I'd like that, I can't let my fiancees feel wronged. If not because of this fear, the wedding might have been already done. This time, we must make it grand. I think we should do it in Wild Dragon Castle, what does Grandpa Green think?"
Green thought and then shook his head, "Young Master, I think it would be better if we do it at Golden Island. That's our domain, if people would want to act impolitely, then we can deal with them immediately!"
