Volume 6 Chapter 76 - Illegal Goods
“Hu, it’s finally over.”
Hafra wiped off the sweat on his face and let out a long breath.
He turned to Nasus on the side and found that he was already on the ground, leaning against the wall by the door, looking like he was dead as he didn’t move at all.
“Hey, Nasus, you are a young fellow, how can you be this useless! Get up!” Hafra couldn’t help scolding him.
Nasus weakly looked up at Hafra and complained, “Dear uncle, I’ve been running around all afternoon and didn’t get any rest at all, can’t you just let me rest for a bit? I don’t even have a bit of strength now.”
Hafra wanted to scold him again, but Prado beside him reached out to stop him.
“Alright, third brother, let him rest. He has been working hard today.” Prado was also gasping. He shook his head and said, “Not to mention him running around, even I’m tired after counting the money. I really want to find two people to take my job. Really, Hafra, I only had to count money for a single morning, but it’s already enough to equal what I’ve done in half a year.”
“Of course, today’s business was too good.” Hafra gave a laugh before coming to Prado’s side and asking in a low voice, “How is it? Did you finish counting?”
Prado first reached out a finger to have him be quiet, but then he couldn’t take the excitement in his heart either. He looked around and gave a cough before sticking out four fingers for Hafra.
Hafra’s eyes immediately lit up.
Four fingers meant four thousand gold coins.
That meant that in just a single morning, they had sold the five thousand pieces of clothing they had brought from the Lampuri Kingdom for over four thousand gold coins!
If they took away the clothing costs, the expenses on the road, and other costs, their pure profit was over two thousand gold coins!
G.o.d, two thousand gold coins in just a single morning?
This was simply something that Hafra never would have dared to dream about before!
“Big brother, are you…..are you sure it’s not wrong?” Hafra was in a bit of disbelief.
Prado understood what he was thinking because after he had calculated everything, he also couldn’t believe his eyes.
After ten years of this and operating this store for seven years, the largest amount of money he had seen was only ten thousand gold coins.
Moreover, that was the year end amount which included the profits from their entire year.
But in the account that he had personally calculated, just by operating normally for a single day, the results were shocking.
According to his records, they had earned over two thousand gold coins in just a single morning.
If they could sell over four thousand gold coins a day, with three hundred sixty five days in a year, if it was a year of this…...wouldn’t that be over a million gold coins?
A million gold coins!
When Prado thought of the golden light that had been in front of him
After calming down, Prado gave a self deprecating smile.
That idea he had now was nothing more than a fantasy. Naturally it was impossible for every day of the year to be as wild as this.
In three hundred and sixty five days, if they could even have a tenth of them be this grand, it would already be shocking enough.
Even with just a tenth, it would mean over a hundred thousand gold coins a year. This was also a shocking number and was also a number that Prado never would have thought that he would be able to reach one day.

“Relax, there won’t be a mistake.” Prado patted Hafra’s shoulder to calm him down.
“Un, I’ve said that I would go back, but before that, I want to ask you several questions about the Lampuri Kingdom.”
“Big brother, you can ask anything. It’s been too long since you left the Lampuri Kingdom, so you don’t know how much has changed with it. It’s good to know about it beforehand.” Hafra sincerely said.
“Good.” Prado gave a nod and after hesitating a bit, he asked, “The first question, which is what I want to understand the most, Hafra, where did you get the goods that you brought with you this time?”
Hearing the serious tone in Prado’s voice, Hafra was a bit surprised. Then seeing the serious look on Prado’s face with a trace of worry, he understood what he meant with a bit of thought.
“Ha, big brother, you’re worried that these goods are illegal goods, right?”
Prado was silent for a bit before giving a nod.
“Right, forget about the first few times since you said that the Lampuri Kingdom has many companies making those strange things called magic machines, so it wasn’t strange that you could get it. But the clothes you brought this time…..I seriously looked over them and found that the clothes were very finely made and designed. Other than the material lacking a bit, it shouldn’t be cheap no matter how you look at it. But you’re telling me that you bought them for an average of less than twenty silver coins in the Lampuri Kingdom, this really…..is a bit too hard to believe.”
Seeing the worry on Prado’s face, Hafra couldn’t help laughing. He walked over and patted Prado’s shoulder, saying with a smile, “Big brother, I said that it’s been too long since you left the Lampuri Kingdom and don’t understand a thing. Let me tell you, in our Lampuri Kingdom, these clothes are only worth twenty silver coins. I wouldn’t want them if they cost a single copper coin more.”
“How can that be?” Prado turned to look at the long dress that he had left for his youngest daughter behind the counter. He picked it up and spread it out before saying, “Look, let’s not talk about the material of this dress, but this dress isn’t any different from the clothes that the n.o.bles of the city wear and it can even be considered better than them. How could such clothing be only worth twenty silver coins?”
“Un, that is the price.” Hafra gave a confident nod, “Of course, if you want better material, it will be more expensive. You can probably buy some lilac cotton for fifty silver coins, that will be much better than normal cotton. So I said that you don’t need to keep it since it isn’t anything good. Of course, speaking of this, I’ve made a mistake. I was in too much of a rush this time and forgot to bring a present for my niece and nephew.”
“That isn’t important.” Prado waved his hand, “I’m curious, why are these clothes so cheap in the Lampuri Kingdom? If these clothes were put here, as long as we left them for a bit of time and weren’t in a rush to sell them, I could guarantee that it wouldn’t be a problem to sell them for over three gold coins each. Right, what is that lilac cotton that you mentioned just now?”
“Oh, it’s a new material the Night Song Tribe elves and the Armani Chamber of Commerce developed together, the main material comes from the stalks of lilacs. The clothes made with this material are very soft and comfortable, it isn’t worse than silk clothes.”
“It’s that amazing?” Prado’s eyes opened wide with disbelief, “Moreover, what did you just say? A elf tribe and human company worked together to develop this? This……”
“Hei, big brother, when you return to the Lampuri Kingdom, you’ll find many things that will shock you more.” Hafra said while laughing, “As for why these clothes are so cheap…..the reason is very simple, it’s because they have plenty of them. Just these low grade items, the Armani Chamber of Commerce is able to make over ten thousand of them a day, so wouldn’t it be strange if they could sell it for more?”
