I was sold at the lowest price C280: In Search of Materials
“The first thing that needs to be resolved as soon as possible is the lack of money!”
Jean said out loud in Fugaku meeting room.
We were supposed to leave once the Amurian Union support troops arrived at Alice Abbey but at the meeting to decide what to do after that, Jean insisted.
“I’d like to go look for some alchemical materials for resurrection…….”
When I said this modestly, Jean said as though I were a demon.
“That’s it! Yes, most of the alchemy materials can be solved with money! As long as we have money, we can do anything!”
Indeed, according to Rafishal, most of the alchemical materials needed for resurrection are common and can be obtained in the market. Well, I heard that the materials are expensive, so the price is high. As Jean said, it might be better to think about obtaining money first.
“Don’t forget the orichalcon and phoenix stone needed to generate the Ludia core.”
Liza’s point reminded everyone. If we can’t create a Ludia core we won’t be able to repair Viktor and my magicraft won’t be finished for a long time.
“I think we should take the job first, what do you say?”
“It would have to be a pretty big war to make that kind of money. Why don’t you talk to the Three Kingdoms Alliance again?”
The Three Kingdoms Alliance, Tamihar, has an old relationship with the Sword Clan and Kiyone reacted to his words.
“Is there a connection with the Three Kingdoms Alliance?”
“Because it became apparent that Yuta might be in the Sword Clan we had to go to Tamihar to gather information, which led us to take on a job, and then I made a connection.”
“I was worried about whether the Three Kingdoms Alliance would be able to compete with the Elysian Empire without the…..Sword Clan, but it’s true that the Iron Knights might be able to take their place.”
“Amuria would like to offer you a job.”
Nagisa cut in.
“We have to deal with the Valkyrie Empire and the Kingdom of Lubel. We might need a bit of a fighting force.”
“It’s not an official offer yet, because the Congress hasn’t decided yet, but they said they want you to help them strengthen their military.”
“Strengthening the military……Well, that could be a big job, depending on the negotiations…….”
Jean smiled inappropriately and began to think about some kind of money-making scheme.
Later, a formal offer came from Ranelle. The request was for cooperation in strengthening the military, just as Nagisa had said. Jean negotiated directly with Ranelle, saying, “Okay, I’ll take care of it,” and was more amazed than dismayed when she turned it into a big job worth a whopping 5 billion.
“Jean, you didn’t pressure Ranelle into anything, did you?”
“No, you idiot. Ranelle knew exactly what she was doing.”
“I’m more interested in how you managed to get such a sum out of her.”
When Alana said this, Emina pointed out, looking at Jean as if he were suspicious.
“I hope you didn’t tell her about the scam. Stop it, you’re disgusting.”
“No, I didn’t! I was talking about strengthening Ludia and providing the technology for the main cannon that is attached to our Fugaku.”
“You’re going to sell the Four Elements Cannon!?”
“No, that one is too difficult to maintain and impossible to handle elsewhere. That’s why we’ve decided to provide the Salamander used as Fugaku’s secondary cannon and convert it into a main cannon.”
“Is Rafishal aware of this? He’ll be very angry if you sell his technology without his permission.”
“I made sure of it. He’s responsible for this lack of money and understands it.”
How could Jean’s guy come up with such an idea? ……Well, anyway, with 5 billion coming in, we won’t have to worry about money for a while.
