With the arrival of workers, the reconstruction of The Rising Sun City could officially start.
In the Barren Land, abundant resources were inexhaustible, and local materials were much quicker acquired than those transported from the Long Xuan Empire.
In building a city, stone materials, bricks, and tiles were needed. Shen Yanxiao directly divided the work among the three thousand slaves.
A thousand people were to explore the eastern part of the Barren Land to mine ores and excavate stone materials.
Five hundred people, together with Uncle Jiu and the others, would open up a part of the Barren Land just outside the city to plant grains and other plants for their food.
Among the remaining 1,500 people, 500 slaves were women. These were the women slaves that Shen Yanxiao specifically bought. They would be responsible for logistical work and preparation of food for others workers.
The 500 women slaves were removed, and the remaining 1,000 would be thoroughly devoted to the reconstruction of The Rising Sun City.
Shen Yanxiao waved her hand in front of the teary-eyed members of the Cave Wolves Mercenary Corps and ordered them to build the city walls first before building the houses.
When the order was issued, every member of the Cave Wolves Mercenary Corps faced the sky and helplessly smiled.
How long will it take before we can finally rest on a proper bed ah?!
Wuwuwu, if we continue living in a dangerous place all day, then one of these days, we will really be killed by stones in minutes!
However, Shen Yanxiao was iron-hearted and was resolute on building the city walls first.
After allocating every job, all people, as well as the demons of The Rising Sun City, were mobilized.
Although the demons could not really participate in the reconstruction of the city, the work of transporting things was very suitable for them.
The mining team outside the city were divided into 20 teams with each team consisting of 50 people. In each of these teams, there would be a higher demon, five middle demons, and a hundred lower demons accompanying them in their trip, so as to completely avoid the possibility of becoming prey to the demons from outside the city.
Shen Yanxiao divided an area outside the city and used it to grow food. Although she brought a lot of food, the current population of her city had now risen above 3,000 people. Although the food on her hands could support this number for a period of time, it was not a permanent solution.
Fortunately, she had been smart enough to buy a large number of seeds before she came to the Barren Land.
Giving people fish was not as good as teaching people how to fish. The cycle of sustainable development was the way of the king!
The slaves were assigned to their respective work in The Rising Sun City, and they received corresponding rewards for it. Shen Yanxiao was not a slave owner who would abuse her slaves. She gave them clothes and gave them food.
And she also gave them dignity.
Every time a slave finished a day's work, Shen Yanxiao would give them five gold coins as their pay. Although the money could not be used today, it would have its use after the completion of the city.
Shen Yanxiao's approach made those numb slaves very grateful.
[Annoying Sky: But I mean, let’s ignore that these are stolen coins, if they’ll use it later to buy stuff in your city, then wouldn’t your money just go back to you?]
They had thought that they would stay in the dark slave market for the rest of their lives. And even if they had the privilege of being bought, they would only continue to live without dignity and human rights.
However, Shen Yanxiao not only lifted their identity as slaves, she even gave them the same respect and recognition other people received, and gave them gold coins they never dared to expect.
Five gold coins a day. If they worked for two days, they could get ten gold coins!!!
They were numb because there was no hope, but Shen Yanxiao gave them the hope of living as a human being. They saw a bright future. The heart that was desperately buried for a long time finally revived.
He knew that Shen Yanxiao disapproved of using slaves from the very beginning, but she had to do so because of the present situation.
Yet, even though she did buy some slaves, she insisted on using her own methods to gradually transform them from slaves without human rights to humans with their own will.
In her own way, she changed the world that she could not accept.
Shen Yanxiao: Y-yes, I pay them five coins a day for their work certainly because I don't see them as slaves! Hehehe... Good he didn't noticed that I can't understand how valuable a gold coin is. (^_^)
Shen Yanxiao: What? You have no rights to give me that look when you, whose trap in my body for how many years also don't have any idea the value of a gold coin at the present time!
Shen Yanxiao: I mean, I just got in this world recently and mostly I just let others handle the money, and so far all the transactions I have met are always in my favor soo...
Shen Yanxiao: Well it doesn't matter anyway, since I have unlimited sources where I can borrow some coins.
Vermillion Bird: SHAMELESS!
