according to the city-state law, nine out of ten sacred stones mined by each family in Duke town should be handed over to the city-state, and one of them is his own. But at the same time, the law stipulates that every registered miner should pay at least one sacred stone every season in spring, summer, autumn and winter, which is the basic tax.
All the adults in the town love to drink, including young women. Whether mining ore or forging iron embryo, it is extremely heavy physical work. It is said that wine is a kind of magical thing with some mysterious power. It seems that it can really relax the mind and relieve the fatigue of the body, but drinking too much is not a good thing. Amon’s father is addicted to alcohol, especially the expensive wine with rich fragrance. In recent years, his hands trembled more and more.
In addition to wine, the residents of DUK also like all kinds of delicious meat. However, except for the few sheep in the nearby area and the occasional game in the mountains, most of the meat needs to be transported from other places. Amun’s father got the money and immediately got the enjoyment. However, the stone of tax for this season has not been turned in.
The mayor of Dusti, who is in charge of the collection and statistics of taxes in Duke Town, is usually kind-hearted. He does not push the miners too far for the occasional default. After all, mining God stone requires not only industry and skill, but also luck. Even if you are in arrears for a while, it is not impossible to make up for it when you are lucky. It is because of this that the mayor of Dusti has been loved by the residents of the town for a long time and has lived a comfortable life.
But three days ago, the mayor of the town ordered that all the families who owed the stone to the gods must pay them up within three days. All the families in the town have made up for it in three days, and they all have a balance over the years, except for the Amun family. The mayor’s order may have something to do with the honorable eju man who came to the town three days ago. Amun is not clear about it. He has not been able to ask for a child like him.
When he came to the town, he borrowed one of his father’s mines to collect taxes. However, when he came to the town, he borrowed one of his father’s mines to replace it with a good one. The old madman assured Amun’s father that there must be a magic stone in it.
There may not always be divine stones in the core, but they must only appear in this kind of core. His father’s hand trembled and could not control the hammer. So he called Amun, who was 14 years old, to have a try.
Since ancient times, Duke town has a rule that when a man reaches the age of 16, the priest will preside over the prayer ceremony in the goddess Muyun palace and receive the blessing of God. Only after the man is qualified to learn the unique craftsmanship passed down from generation to generation can he open the core and take out the divine stone. Those who do not have the qualification can only do some auxiliary work, such as looking for the core in the mountains and mining it, cutting wood and burning charcoal to provide fuel for furnace fire.
In the past two years, Amun’s father felt that his physical exhaustion was getting faster and faster, and his hands were shaking more and more seriously. He waited until that day step by step. He was afraid that it would be too late for Amun to take over his mine hammer, so he privately taught his son the local miner’s skills in advance. After two years of practice, Amun has mastered quite well, which surprised his father. Generally speaking, children in Duke town want to master this unique power control method. They learn from 16 and can’t graduate until they are 20 years old, and they can’t use it so skillfully.
Father was surprised, but Amun was more surprised, not because of how fast he learned. Don’t the magistrates and priests say that only with the blessing and grace of the patron god can they learn the unique skills handed down from generation to generation in Duke? I did not experience the solemn and sacred ceremony. How did it awaken the sleeping power in the legend? He did not ask his father, but asked the old madman Nietzsche, and the old madman sneered at this reply, but also told him to pay attention to confidentiality, not to say nonsense.
When Amun hit the core with a sledgehammer, his father’s expression was very nervous, his hands were shaking involuntarily, while Amun’s expression was very focused and calm. His father thought he was the character list in this chapter:
Amun’s father: a miner and blacksmith in Duke Town, he was an alcoholic.
Nietzsche: a resident of Duke, an old friend of Amun, nicknamed old madman.
