Abe the Wizard - chapter 446
His status as an agent was too good to lose for Wizard Arche. It was the Kingdom of St Pierrt’s benefits anyway; all he wanted was to save himself.
“Do you know the owner of the Forgotten Land is?” Wizard Lorenzo asked Wizard Arche.
“Mr. Lorenzo, I heard it was owned by an intermediate wizard. Is that wizard very powerful?” By this point, Wizard Arche started to understand a little bit more about the situation.
“The Forgotten Land is owned by the steward of Grand Master Abel, so it’s also Grand Master Abel’s assets. Your Food and Beverage Alliance was crazy enough to mess with a Grandmaster,=; of course, you guys deserve to die!” Said Wizard Lorenzo with a cold laugh.
Wizard Lorenzo couldn’t care less about the Food and Beverage Alliance. Even the 4 elite wizards wouldn’t dare to mess with Abel so that little Food and Beverage Alliance definitely deserved what they’ve gotten.
“Grand Master Abel’s assets!” Wizard Arche mumbled in disbelief.
By this point, he knew how the mansion and that 27 restaurants were whipped out. It was impossible for an adventure squad of four could do such a thing, but Grand Master Abel would be able to gather countless commanders and intermediate wizards if he wanted.
“Mr. Lorenzo, please help me explain the situation to Grand Master Abel. It was all Welfare’s doing, the Kingdom of St Pierrt, and I really didn’t know a thing!” Said Wizard Arche with a bow.
“Ok, but time is short. Let’s see what compensation can your kingdom give, and I will help you settle it. The sooner, the better!” Said Wizard Lorenzo, waving his hand.
“Mr. Lorenzo, how about we give all 27 of those restaurants to Grand Master Abel since I can make that decision. They are destroyed, but I can tell someone to rebuild them within 10 days.
Wizard Arche knew these 27 restaurants were all located in the best area of the city. They were the Good and Beverage Alliance’s restaurants, and the Kingdom of St Pierrt had in their city, so it was a very reasonable compensation.
“Let’s give Grandmaster Abel a Mansion as well to show the genuineness of the Kingdom of St Pierrt. I will direct this message to him!” Said Wizard Lorenzo waving his hand and made the decision for Wizard Arche.
“Ok, I will immediately look for the best mansion and report it to my kingdom!” Said Wizard Arche nodding his head.
Since Wizard Arche could become the Kingdom of St Pierrt’s agent in the Kingdom of St Ellis, his status was not ordinary. He was a Wizard with Royal status. Although he was not a direct royal descent, his royal identity on top of his outstanding gift in wizardry had owed him this status as an agent.
This compensation for Grand Master Abel was more like a gift to him. It was a rare opportunity to interact with Grand Master Abel, so as long as they could be friends, the Kingdom of St Pierrt would gladly give these assets out as well.
“Quickly, I the people outside are about to explode.” Said Wizard Lorenzo with a headache looking at the people outside.
Wizard Arche quickly connected with the head lord of the Kingdom of St Pierrt. In order to go through with a thing like this, he just needed the confirmation with the head lord. The king only needed to look through the report every day, and normally, he wouldn’t interfere with the decision of the head lord.
The head lord wholeheartedly agreed with Wizard Arche’s decision; he too wanted to resolve the conflict with Grand Master Abel as soon as possible. Not only that, but it was also important to form a good impression for Grand Master Abel, so the head lord demanded Wizard Arche to keep Abel satisfied.
After he got the confirmation from the head lord, he willingly gave out a luxurious mansion located next to the inner city circle, as well as hiring the best blacksmiths in the city to help repair the 27 restaurants. With the words from their kingdom as well as the support of the head lord, they could definitely repair the restaurants in under 10 days.
Afterward, he handed a lambskin parchment and 28 title deeds to Wizard Lorenzo. Then he said with a bow, “Mr. Lorenzo, I’ll leave the rest to you. The Kingdom of St Pierrt and I thank you deeply!”
“Don’t worry, I’ve had a little bit of interaction with Grand Master Abel before, I’m sure he will be satisfied with this!” Said Wizard Lorenzo with a smile.
Wizard Lorenzo visited Abel’s place again with a large amount of compensation in hand. 27 restaurant title deeds, 1 mansion title deed, and a fire letter from the Kingdom of St Pierrt.
This compensation was totally unexpected for Abel. He just wanted a little apology from the Kingdom of St Pierrt after he realized they were the owner of the Food and Beverage Alliance through the Goff family.
Abel thought that destroying all their restaurants and killing their headmaster was more than enough, but it seemed like his thoughts were still different from what the kingdom thought.
In the eyes of the Kingdom of St Pierrt, a little bit of benefit was nothing compared to the respect of a Grand Master. These assets were just like a little gift.
After Elite Wizard Lorenzo left, Abel said to Bartoli, “Go tell everyone we will open again tomorrow. Also, give the staff some extra money. They got scared yesterday, and since we now have our compensation, it makes sense to give them some share!”
“Yes, master!” Bartoli replied.
“Also hire some more people. We will have 27 more restaurants 10 days from now. Their locations are very good, so we can add them to our family assets!” Of course, Abel knew fully well where those restaurants were located, so he said with a smile.
Abel’s family assets were still very small. Although they had two knight domains, and they didn’t have a lot of lands. He heard that his assets in Bakong City had been eaten up by the royals in the Duchy of Carmel, but he was not planning to stress too much about it. That place was just a little Duchy, he knew everything would be returned to him as long as he asked head commander Hoover.
However, Abel was not planning to settle that incident just by asking head commander Hoover to speak up for him. He got his noble status by killing the orcs. It would be a huge insult to nobles if his prestigious baron status was canceled just like that. Even a high-level Duchy could not do this.
But actually, Abel’s noble status had already been revived without him knowing it. Not only, that but the Duchy of Carmel had also paid him some compensation and requested to raise his baron status. They just needed to wait for a confirmation for the Kingdom of St Ellis.
As a Duchy, the royals could only control the status of people below a baron. Anything above that needed to be confirmed by the central kingdom. Although normally they wouldn’t deny it, it was still an act of respect to the central kingdom.
The royals in the Duchy of Carmel were known for their stinginess. They normally wouldn’t give out domains at all. They made an exception for Abel since they had no choice. Abel had saved Marshall Castle, and he had met all the criteria needed to be rewarded a domain.
The domain given to him as a baron was extremely bad looking, let alone he was already a Blacksmith Master at the time. The Royals in the Duchy of Carmel really went crazy for domains, even more than their yearning for gifted people.
