Chapter 622: The Scar of Oblivion (2)
“I know.” Shen Yanxiao sighed.
She had money and land but lacked the workforce.
It was very frustrating for her.
“I know a place where you may find what you need,” Du Lang suggested.
“The Scar of Oblivion.”
Shen Yanxiao was surprised to hear that.
The Scar of Oblivion did not belong to any country, and it existed between the borders of two countries in a vast rift valley.
During the war between the demons and the gods, a massive piece of land cracked in the open plain, and that turned out to be the Scar of Oblivion.
There was no one there to govern, nor were there any legal control.
It was called the Scar of Oblivion because the world would forget anyone who went there.
One could find many strange things at the Scar of Oblivion.
No country could control the land because the ones who lived there were desperate outlaws.
They were most wanted criminals from various countries, and they had escaped there to be safe.
The other feature that made the Scar of Oblivion noticeable was the slave trade.
The slave trade had been banned in the four countries for many years.
However, at the Scar of Oblivion, people could still buy slaves who had no dignity and were treated like livestock.
The slaves purchased from the Scar of Oblivion were deemed legitimate in all four countries.
Many people from noble or wealthy households would buy slaves as labor or punch bags.
It was the slave owners right to inflict any harm to the slaves, even to kill them.
“Are you suggesting slaves from the Scar of Oblivion” Shen Yanxiao frowned.
She did not like that kind of inhumane oppression, and perhaps, it was also because she was from a time and place that advocated freedom and equality.
Somehow, she felt repelled by the lack of human rights in the world.
“Yes.” Du Lang nodded.
“There are many slaves there.
As long as you have enough gold coins, you can buy enough slaves.
Most of them have been trained, and they would not go against their owners will.
They would not have any complaints even if they were to come to the Forsaken Land to work.”
Shen Yanxiao listened as she continued to frown.
Du Lang could tell that she was not fond of the idea, but he had no other choice.
“You may disapprove of this idea, but it is the only solution to our problem.”
Shen Yanxiao thought about it before she stood up.
“I will visit the Scar of Oblivion.
Pick someone from your mercenary group and have them come with me.
We will take a carriage there.
I… I will buy some slaves and bring them here with me.” Shen Yanxiao found it awkward to utter the word slaves.
She might have been an unkind thief, but she was a person of integrity.
There were things that she could do and some that she could never accept.
Du Lang was relieved that Shen Yanxiao had agreed with their plan.
If they could not rebuild the city, then they would have to live in that mess for a long time.
A ceiling that could break at any time was enough to scare them.
How upset would it be if those rocks killed them in their sleep
Eventually, after some discussion, Du Lang asked the six wolves to accompany Shen Yanxiao.
Lan Fengli, Freud, Vermillion Bird, and the little Phoenix tagged along as well.
The two Phoenixes would stay in the city to keep an eye out in case some fools would come with ill intentions.
Shen Yanxiao only brought three carriages with her.
After she gave her instructions, she set off with the group and left the Sun Never Sets.
