Ryan fumbled and caught the sheepskin scroll Lucas had thrown. He swallowed hard, opened the sheepskin scroll, and quickly read it. The more he read, the more his eyes widened. After he finished reading the scroll, he froze, and the sheepskin scroll fell from his hands onto the ground.

"No wonder… no wonder… so that's why… Omar made a good plan." Ryan said bitterly. He finally understood why Omar had stripped him of his title of a knight and made things hard for him. It was because Omar knew Ryan's personality and was afraid that Ryan would ruin his plan.

It was also because of Ryan's personality that Omar had sent Ryan to send the letter, as he knew that Ryan would not peek at the letter and would definitely give the letter to Carter. Ryan didn't suspect anything as he thought it was just the usual communication between cities and sales of things, as he had done this for Omar many times.

He hadn't expected that the sheepskin scroll would contain the horse thieves' plan and the stuff that Omar wanted Carter to do. Their target was Sakura City and Sedona City. It was basically saying that Omar was the leader of the horse thieves.

However, Lucas was the one who got the letter. It was as if the Goddess of Fate was looking over him. This was also something that Omar and Ryan had never expected to happen.

Ryan started to sweat intensely. He said anxiously, "City Lord, I really don't know anything. I'm just someone who was ordered to deliver the letter to Cater." Ryan now knew that the person in front of him wasn't Carter as long as they weren't an idiot, anyone in that position could figure that out. Ryan could easily guess what had happened to Carter. Either he was dead or captured by the person in front of him.

"Mr. Ryan, do you think I would believe you after reading this letter?" Lucas said solemnly. 'What a surprise. Not only did I find out the leader of the horse thieves, I also got to know their future plan.' This incident made Lucas realize how important information was in this world. Not only in this world, information is important in all worlds.

"This…" Ryan didn't know what to say. As long as they weren't an idiot, anyone that saw the detailed letter would think that he was part of it. The hot-tempered ones would have already told people to drag him out to be beheaded.

"Arrest the two of them and put them in the dungeon. Don't let them out without my orders." Lucas said to Ben.

"Understood!" Ben replied as he was waiting for Lucas' command.

Ryan was silent. He knew that there was nothing he could do and one of two things would happen to him: he would either get killed, or he would be turned into a slave. He knew that now he probably will never meet with Liza again. He said sorry to Liza in his heart as he heard the sound of soldiers footsteps.

Soldiers soon came to take Ryan and his servant to the dungeon. As for when they would get out, well, that was up to Lucas.

"Very interesting." Lucas said, taking the sheepskin scroll that Mina had picked up. 'Who would have thought there would be such a coincidence.'

"Young Master, what do you plan to do?" Mina asked with a military knife in her hand. "Do you want me to go and get that Omar's head?"

"Nah…" Lucas's mouth twitched, and he flicked Mina's forehead with his index finger. "For the time being, there's no need for us to do anything. Besides, it's not going to bring us any benefit?"

"Huh?" Mina rubbed her forehead as she looked at Lucas with confusion in her eyes.

"Don't forget, we're just their second target. Sakura City is their first target." Lucas rubbed Mina's ears. Seeing Mina enjoying it with her eyes closed, he smiled lightly, and said, "We just need to give a copy of this information to Sakura City…"

To be honest, he was a bit worried about Mina's safety as Omar might have some means of protection. He knew that he should not underestimate Omar.

"Ah! I get it. We'll let them fight first and then we'll go out and finish the job." Mina said, her eyes glowing with excitement.

"Yep! We shouldn't make unnecessary consumptions. Besides…" Lucas's voice trailed off as he looked at Mina with a complicated expression. According to the information, Omar had a lot of beastkin slaves.

Mina looked at Lucas, who had suddenly become silent. "Young Master, what's wrong?"

"Nothing. I was just thinking of something complicated." Lucas said, shaking his head with a light smile. He then changed the subject, "It's almost time for lunch. Where did Annie and the others run off to?

"He he…" Mina suddenly giggled and looked at Lucas weirdly.

"Is there something going on?" Lucas asked curiously. He knew that Annie was pretty naughty. She might be older than Mina, but her personality was that of a kid and would only be serious when dealing with serious business.

"It's a secret. You'll know when it's time." Mina said, smiling playfully and blinking her eyes. She then turned and left the room.

"Phew…" Lucas exhaled lightly when Mina was out of sight. He handed the sheepskin scroll to Ben and said, "Uncle Ben, copy the information on here excluding the part about Sedona City. Then send a cunning person to send the information to Sakura City."

"Young Master, you can't send it for free. Otherwise, they won't believe it." Ben said seriously to Lucas.

"Of course we're not sending it for free. Tell Sakura City to give 2 big ships in exchange for this piece of information." Lucas said, smiling lightly. He was already starting to plan for future trades.

"They won't agree to that. They only have 2 big ships." Ben said, shaking his head.

"This is just the opening price. Wait for them to bargain. Get them to at least agree to 2 medium-sized ships." Lucas replied with a slight smile.

"Got it, I will tell them that." Ben said, nodding. He just needed to know what the bottom line was, even though he didn't really think that Sakura City would be willing to pay 2 medium-sized ships.

The corner of Lucas's mouth rose. This was basically sending things to his doorstep. Besides, his iron mines were short on people, and the horse thieves would basically be free miners.

As for Sakura City, well, they definitely wouldn't be able to stop the horse thieves. Lucas was plotting for more than just the 2 ships.

"It seems like we have to rebuild Sedona City's dock. We need to expand it a few times." Lucas muttered. "What if we redirect the river's path so that it's right next to Sedona City? No, we don't have enough laborers right now. Then it's probably better to just expand the city to the side of the river. Then we'll need more cement and iron bar. Four months during winter…"

Ben's eyes grew wider and wider as he listened. He was shocked and frightened by Lucas's crazy and impractical idea.
