Chapter 33: Old Cha, Take Me as your master!

However, just as he was about to leave, Lorne suddenly tugged onto Kyle’s shirt.

“Oh right, old friend, I almost forgot to mention this. Remember to prepare at least ten cows the next time you come to my place and prepare some more money.”

Kyle was suddenly given such an order and his head was filled with confusion. He was completely dumbfounded.

“I can understand the part where you want me to prepare more money, but why should I bring ten cows?”

Lorne stopped smiling. His expression was very solemn. He patted Kyle’shoulder solemnly.

“Bring ten cows as a gift to acknowledge me as your master!”

Kyle was speechless. He was even more confused now. He did not understand what was going on at all.

“Why would I suddenly want to acknowledge you as my master?”

Lorne said earnestly, “You see, we’ve known each other for a long time. Every time you come to the tavern, you tend to ask me many questions. You’ve asked me everything, from the palace and the royal family, to the commoners and the small streets, and as far as the border fortress.

“If you keep asking me these kinds of questions, you’ll end up learning everything I have to offer. If that’s the case, you should acknowledge me as your master. Otherwise, I would be at a great disadvantage.”

“...”

Kyle was dumbfounded. This boss was really daring. He actually wanted to be the king’s master after fiddling around for so long. This was too much. He, Kyle, was not naive nor young anymore. Why should he be under a young man!

“Cough... Cough!”

“Boss, look at me. I’m not young anymore. If I really acknowledge you as my teacher, wouldn’t I be a joke to others? If you were a few decades older, I would definitely agree to it easily. After all, you are knowledgeable and intelligent. I truly admire that about you.

“However, the difficulty lies in our age gap. It’s honestly a little inappropriate for you to say such things out loud.”

Lorne immediately fell into deep thought.

“Old friend, what you said makes sense. Looking at the things you’ve learned from me all this while, don’t you think I’ve suffered a great loss?”

Kyle did not know how to respond at all. He turned around and glared at Rosen and Andrew, they both were trying hard to suppress their laughter. Then, he continued, “How about this? When I have the chance, I will bring my good-for-nothing son here and let you be his teacher. This way, regardless of age or seniority, it will at least make sense. The two of us will continue to treat each other as equals. What do you think?”

Kyle said it lightly, but Rosen and Andrew’s hearts jumped when they heard it. The useless son that the king spoke of, was none other than the first prince.

Holy cr*p! This was a sign that he wanted Lorne to become the Master of the First Prince!

Being the Master of the First Prince was an extremely important official position. It represented the future king’s assistant minister and could influence the future king’s words and actions.

The king placed too much importance on Lorne. It was indeed a little terrifying.

However, Lorne could not help but be surprised by what Kyle said.

“Not bad. Old friend. You sold your son without even thinking twice.”

Kyle immediately waved his hand.

“Boss, you’re mistaken. A young and talented man like you would be too erudite and wise. It would be an honor for you to be my son’s teacher.

“I’m just too old to admit it out loud. Otherwise, I would have easily come to you tomorrow with the master’s ceremony. To be honest, you won’t even have to mention it for me to do it. But now, it would be very beneficial for my disappointment of a son to have you as his master. Why wouldn’t I be selling him off?”

Lorne immediately put on a look of realization and could not help but praise his friend, “Old friend, this is as expected of a businessman. You may not be the brightest of the bunch, but when it comes to business, you outshine us all!

“Since you’ve said well, I don’t seem to have any reason to refuse. When you have the time, bring my eldest nephew here. I will take him in as a disciple without any hesitation. I promise to teach him some principles that others would never learn.

“When the time comes, my eldest nephew shall easily inherit your business. I guarantee that he’ll do even better than you. His family business will be even bigger!”

Lorne looked very pleased with himself, which made Andrew and Rosen completely dumbfounded.

In just a few seconds, Lorne even addressed the king’s son as his eldest nephew?

If the First Prince, Weiss knew about this and found him a new uncle, he would probably squat in the corner and cry from the news.

The weirdest thing was that Lorne’s age did not seem to be far older than the First Prince, Weiss’s age.

Now, without even knowing, the First Prince gained a Master that does not have a big age gap. If he knew about this, he would probably throw a fit.

Kyle could not help but stifle his laughter, but there was a large part of his sincerity in saying all this. This was because Lorne was indeed intelligent and erudite. It was just that people could not help but not look past his age.

There were countless senior ministers in the palace. How many of them could compare to the foresight, mindfulness, and ability of the young man in front of him?

If First Prince Weiss was able to obtain such a talented person as his teacher, it would be a matter that would benefit him for the rest of his life.

With the guidance of this young man in front of him, the First Prince’s political means, court intrigue, the mentality of the future king’s mind, as well as his ability to judge people, would definitely not be inferior to his father.

Kyle was worried that something would happen to his successor, which would cause problems for the entire Lolan Empire. Therefore, Kyle paid great attention to the cultivation of the next generation. Under this mentality, Kyle emphasized his tone and said, “Boss, let’s make this a deal okay. Don’t go back on your word when the time comes. When the time is right, I’ll bring my son here. You’ll have to teach him well and teach him everything.”

Lorne patted his chest and said generously, “Just bring my nephew here. I’ll be in charge of teaching him well. I’m actually a busy man who has to deal with many things every day. I don’t have time to be a teacher.

“However, I’ll be doing this all just for you, old friend. We’re brothers. I should be willing to spend my time on such trivial things as these.

“Otherwise, if it were someone else, I would have easily closed the door and asked them to find another house.”

There seemed to be frown lines that formed on Kyle’s forehead when Lorne mentioned that he was a busy person.

‘How can you tell that things are busy? Every day, apart from leisurely sitting in the tavern and waiting for no one to come in, you would just stroll around Lolan City, from east to west. You are the least busy person I know,’ Kyle thought to himself.

Compared to Lorne, the king was truly a busy man.. He could make a desk from the amount of official government reports he had to deal with every day.
