Chapter 248: The Second Lords’ Meeting

‘This damned...!’

Kang Chul-In’s face crumpled.

“H-He’s good at it?”

“It’s big?”

“Is he the “strongest” at night, too?”

A few Lords started to look at Kang Chul-In with shocked faces after hearing what Hecate said.

‘...I’m gonna go crazy.’

Kang Chul-In’s face continued to crumple in real-time.

Ah, how fast rumors spread.

The rumor ‘his Majesty is a real man!’ must’ve spread from the Valhalla Kingdom to enter Hecate’s ears.

Of course, the relationship through the marriage of Hecate’s and Kang Chul-In’s people probably had a lot to do with it as well.

“What an outrageous guy… he’s even good with nighttime activities...”

“Just take it all!”

“Ugh…my pride…”

“Just how good is he that there are rumors like that?”

The gazes of the Lords that looked at Kang Chul-In were filled with envy, respect, and more… they were mostly positive.

Why?

Because it was the dream of all men to become the greatest male!

“And you said no when I asked.”

Hecate opened her mouth and bothered Kang Chul-In again.

“So you were one of those no sex before marriage people?”

“Of course not.”

“Then why’d you reject me?”

“You’re not thinking of me like a dog in heat, are you?” he asked in a somewhat cold voice.

“I just thought you’d say yes if I asked. Hmmm...”

“Know the place and time, Hecate.”

“Fine.”

Hecate unexpectedly obeyed Kang Chul-In instead of showing her dirty temperament.

“Since there are times when you don’t want to do it.”

“It’s fine if you understand.”

“It’s a relief that it stands.”

“...”

“There was a time when I seriously contemplated whether you rejected me because you were sterile.”

“...”

“Good thing you’re not.”

Kang Chul-In, who had reacted coldly to her words, couldn’t find anything to say.

Well,

‘She’s not your average crazy person.’

Hecate, the ‘female Kang Chul-In,’ the manifestation of lunacy, was truly the real ‘crazy bitch in the district.’

He had expected too much from her... hoping that she would take it normally...

“Huuu.”

Kang Chul-In let out a long sigh and passed Hecate.

“What are you looking at? Have you never seen a person before?”

He threw a threatening look at the innocent Lords.

“T-That’s not it, but...!”

“She said you’re very virile so… my respect...”

“I apologize, Supreme King of the West Kang Chul-In…”

“I-It’s nothing...”

The Lords that had been looking at Kang Chul-In were taken aback and began to apologize. They didn’t want to stand out in a bad way and suffer from it.

“Instead of being interested in someone else’s virility...”

Kang Chul-In spoke up as he began to talk again.

“Think about raising your own. Those weak things might get stronger if you work for it.”

Now he was basically admitting to his virility, not caring.

***

<<Rulers of Pangaea, it’s been a while. Welcome to the Second Lords’ Meeting.>>

The host of the Lords’ Meeting, Akan, appeared to start it.

Is that guy the system? Or its informant?

Unlike the other Lords, Kang Chul-In was thinking about something else while looking at Akan.

According to the Emperor of Blood and Iron, the great force that had led everyone here to the Pangaea continent was because of the ‘Erinyes System.’

He didn’t know for sure, but if the Emperor of Blood and Iron knew about it, it was definitely around since a thousand years ago.

<<You might not be aware, but many unexpected changes occurred since the first Lords’ Meeting. Because of that, the temper of the great god is becoming shaken up.>>

“Great god,” my ass.

Kang Chul-In inwardly laughed at Akan.

Bullshit... The god is probably just the system, Erinyes. There wasn’t something like a god in the first place.

Kang Chul-In was able to think this far about the Great Summoning after his meeting with the Emperor of Blood and Iron.

<<Due to this, a part of the growing quest for those who achieved 70 levels will be taken back. The rewards for them have already been distributed, but it will take a while for the quest to be reassigned. I apologize, and we’ll make it so that the quests are reassigned quickly.>>

Only Kang Chul-In was able to understand what Akan was saying.

The system must be messed up because I returned to the past with Soul Backup. Since its temper is becoming shaken up, it makes sense why the growing quests became muddled.

Of course, he hadn’t known that someone’s house being destroyed by Laptua due to his lack of piloting skills would be the main cause of all this.

<<Alright, then let’s begin the first program of the Second Lords’ Meeting. I’ll be off...>>

Akan disappeared after speaking and,

Flash!

With a shining light, different kiosks began to be set up in the Lords’ Hall.

They were to be used for the following.

[An item exchange will take place for the next 2 hours.]

[The system mediates the exchange of gold for the item in order to prevent scam or fraud, and there is a 4% fee taken from the amount that you receive from the seller!]

It was for the trade amongst the Lords, the item exchange.

Let’s see if there’s anything useful.

Kang Chul-In grinned and began to move between the kiosks.

This item exchange was truly the flower of the boring Lords’ Meeting.

Think about it.

How many times would there be a chance for the Lords that had been stuck in their territories to exchange what they had?

No one knew who lived where and who had what, so of course, an item exchange couldn’t take place. This was the only time when Lords exchanged all kinds of items.

“Husband! Here, here!”

Just then, Lee Chae-rin called Kang Chul-In over from her flashing Mithril kiosk.

“I know.”

Kang Chul-In spoke.

“I’ve been watching you since I entered the Lords’ Hall.”

“Gasp! R-Really?”

“Do you think I wouldn’t be able to recognize my woman out of 200 people?”

“H-Husband...!”

Lee Chae-rin’s body trembled. It was because Kang Chul-In’s words were too sweet and pleasing to hear.

“Then, I’ll do my work.”

“I’ll be waiting.”

“I’m telling you just in case, but...”

“Don’t buy useless things? Don’t overspend?”

“Just don’t do that, at least...”

“Don’t worry!”

“Alright. And be careful of Hecate, that crazy bitch!”

“...I will.”

Kang Chul-In, who had unintentionally been about to nag, put Lee Chae-rin’s heart filled gaze behind him and began to look at the items the Lords put out.

There should be at least one thing that’s useful...

Kang Chul-In scanned the kiosks with the eyes of a hawk.

The most important thing right now was insight.

You had to have the ability to recognize a good item at a single glance to benefit from this.

Why?

Because obviously, no one would put out items that screamed ‘I’m a good item!’

Everyone wanted to become stronger than each other, so why would a Lord give a really good item to sell?

However, if you had outstanding insight, you could find the ‘hidden honey’ that others weren’t interested in!

[Selling the best health potions!]

[Selling the Cold Breeze accessory set!]

[Selling the Obsessed Tracker’s Bow Gun. (Ask for price)]

The 200 flashy signs made Kang Chul-In dizzy, but there really wasn’t anything worth using even when he looked again.

It’s filled with trash. 

If it was a mediocre item, it was expensive, and everything that was cheap was useless.

There was no way someone would buy those things unless they were a pushover.

“Hey! Kang Chul-In! Shopping is the best for relieving stress, huh! Hahaha!”

It seemed there was a pushover amongst all of this trash.

“Wow, there’s a lot of interesting items!”

“...”

“Spend some money! Don’t save it all like you’re some kind of miser!”

Dorian Explorer shook his hand at Kang Chul-In with a large bag on his back.

“Tsk, he was scammed again.”

Kang Chul-In shook his head.

No matter how many times he thought about that, that guy was the greatest pushover among all the pushovers.

[Selling this and that. Come by to see.]

Just then, a sign that looked spiritless at a glance entered Kang Chul-In’s sight.

“Hing… Nothing of mine is being sold...”

He heard a depressed voice.

“We’re in the red this month too... What should I do… Whew… If this doesn’t work out it’s bad… Hng...”

It was a familiar nuance of speaking.

Kang Chul-In had also always had a deficit in the past, too.

The kid’s working hard.

Kang Chul-In grinned passing by the pretty girl’s sign.

Pause.

He stopped in his footsteps.

“Please take a look! I’ll give it to you cheap!”

He stopped because of the artifact he saw on her thin white neck as she shouted passionately.

No way!

His eyes flashed like a hawk.

That sparkling necklace looked similar in its design to his Overpower bracelet.

If he was right, that artifact that that girl had was...

The Amplifier Talisman...!

It was probably the last part of the Trinity Impact set he had.

“Hey, kiddo...”

Kang Chul-In turned around to speak to the girl.

“Hello, little miss?”

But there was an unwanted person who was there already,

“I’m Alex Rothschild.”

“H-Hello!”

“Can I look around at the items you have?”

“Of course!”

“Haha, then shall I take a look?”

Rothschild smoothly led the conversation with the pretty child and had an animated talk with her.

That bastard. 

A vein popped out of Kang Chul-In’s forehead.

Grin.

A murderous smile also appeared.

He’s doing all kinds of things.

He thought he had crushed Alex Rothschild well, but he was annoying him even here.

“I’ll buy everything here.”

Rothschild attempted to ridiculously spend his money.

“Of course, there’s a condition.”

“C-Condition?”

The pretty little Lord’s eyes widened.

“B-But...”

“It’s not hard, my lady. I just want to become closer with a cute little lady like you, and...”

But Kang Chul-In wasn’t one to stay still.

That trash-like bastard. Does he want to flex in front of a little girl now?

He couldn’t let the potential owner of the Amplifier Talisman and Alex Rothschild become close!

“Hey, you!”

Kang Chul-In got in between them,

“Little lady?”

“Y-Yes?”

The pretty little Lord jumped in surprise when Kang Chul-In called her.

Of course she would be surprised.

To a pretty little child like her, Kang Chul-In was like a scary demon or a monster.

He could be compared to the boogeyman from children’s books.

Don’t worry, I don’t bite. 

But Kang Chul-In was confident.

He had a strong card to lower her guard.

“The items on that kiosk, I’ll buy everything.”

“...!”

“Right now.”

“B-But, this person already...”

“I’ll give you two times that.”

Kang Chul-In began to do Rothchild’s specialty, flexing.

“No, three times.”

“...!”

“So sell it all to me.”

Rothschild’s face next to him turned rotten.

Why?

Because Kang Chul-In was using the ‘I’ll show you the money’ skill that he always used!
