When Dantes found out that his friends had deceived him, he vowed to take revenge on them, but Faria’s father was upset. He shook his head and said, “Revenge is wrong. “I’m really sorry I helped you.” Dantes smiled bitterly and said, “Father! “Let ‘s talk about other things.” The next day, they talked about different things. Dants was very interested in learning.

Farba’s father taught him things about mathematics, science, history, other languages, literature and medicine. Danz knew a little Italian, but after about six months he was able to speak Spanish, English and German. A year later, Dantes had learned so much that no one believed he was a normal sailor. Danes, a gifted young man and Faria’s father, was a very skilled teacher. “In another year, you will learn everything I know,” Faria’s father once told him. Two years after the acquaintance, the two prisoners again thought of escaping and digging a tunnel that would lead to the tunnel of their cells.
According to the new plan, the tunnel reached under a corridor guarded by a guard. Then they dug a pit and covered it so that the guard could fall into it. They then caught him and tied his hands and feet, and escaped through the window of the corridor that faced the sea, using the rope ladder of Faria’s father. The next day, digging began. Gradually, Dantes gave up his morals and rude behavior as a result of living with Faria’s father, and, like the educated and noble, he became a polite and dignified young man.

Less than a day after Andre was imprisoned, he was told that someone had come to see him. Poor Andre was constantly thinking about his misery during this time. Eventually he came to the conclusion that this situation would not last long. “A strong man is behind me,” he said to himself. They gave me a lot of money at once. Then I met all the rich and aristocratic people. Then I was about to marry the daughter of a rich money changer.
So surely someone is interested in me. But who? Kenneth Monte Cristo? You mean Kent loves me? Kent must be my real father. A father I have never seen. Now someone has come to see me. He must have come to say that Kent would arrange my release from prison soon. But when he entered the waiting room, he was surprised to see a man he had not seen in ten years. “Good morning,” said Bertuccio. “You?” Andre said, looking around in horror. You ?! ” – You were not happy to see me? “Why are you here?” Said Andre. “Who sent you?”

No one.

How did you know I was in prison?
I’m Kent’s servant. Some time ago, when you came to your house, I knew you.
“Oh, so he sent you, Kent?” Said Andre, happy. “Well, tell me about your father.”
Bertuccio asked: “Father ?! “So who am I?”

In a part of Count Monte Cristo’s book you read:
The smugglers welcomed the other occupants of the boat that had entered Monte Cristo. They delivered a shipment of Turkish-made carpets to them and received their regular wages, one hundred francs per person. Edmund, like everyone else, got paid, but smiled; Because the smallest piece of jewelry in his handkerchief was worth ten times as much as the crew received.

When they anchored in Leghorn again, Edmund informed the captain that he had no plans to continue the voyage. The captain offered him twice the usual salary, but Edmund thanked him and refused. Seeing Jacopo’s confused face, Edmund pulled him aside and said, “My savior. I want to suggest you. I need someone like you, someone who is loyal and has a secret. “Will you work with me?”

Jacopo’s face parted. “What could be better?” So that’s right. “As I guessed, you are not just a sailor!”
“I really enjoyed traveling on this smuggling ship. “But in addition to the other things I know, I am also a sailor … Now take your belongings and wait for me in the city square.”
Edmund walked over to the jeweler and the gem dealer’s house and showed him four small diamonds for sale. The broker was accustomed to being indifferent to what was being offered to him, but his eyes sparkled when he saw the four diamonds. He did not ask Edmund any questions. Even where did little boatmen like him get these jewels? He immediately gave Edmund forty thousand francs and told him to come to him whenever he had jewelry to sell.
