Chapter 276: Dad is Coming!

“The principal… the principal…!”

Arshelly couldn’t finish her sentence. 

“Slowly.”

Han Ye-Sun patted Arshelly’s back and soothed her in a calming voice. 

“What did the principal do?

“I-It’s…”

Arshelly explained what happened in the principal’s room. 

“There’s a parent classroom observation class…”

“Ah…”

“The principal said… I have to bring my dad…”

It wasn’t something special. All parents would participate in a classroom observation at some point, even when the kids were in kindergarten. After all, all parents wanted to see how their child did at school. 

“Mm…”

For a moment, Han Ye-Sun tilted her head because she was wondering why Arshelly was sad. There wasn’t any reason for a smart and dependable child to be upset about a parent classroom observation. 

“A-Also…” 

Arshelly continued. 

“Dad… class…”

“...!”

“Said I have… to… hing…”

“Ah…!”

Han Ye-Sun felt like she knew why Arshelly was being like this. 

Who was Arshelly’s father? Kang Chul-In, the most famous celebrity in the world, was Arshelly’s father. He was a supernaturalist, tycoon, soldier of the highest rank, dimensional traveler, and more! He was even a true hero who had protected South Korea from monsters from another dimension!

Some of the media even said that Kang Chul-In could be a new presidential candidate during the next election. That meant that the principal was trying to use Arshelly to bring a busy man into the school. 

Why?

Because, if he could call a person like Kang Chul-In into the school, he would receive all kinds of benefits from the director of the elementary school. 

‘So that was why he skipped over me and called Arshelly directly…’

She could clearly see his intentions of promotion. Of course, Kang Chul-In could come to the school for his daughter, but he was such a busy man. She didn’t know if he could spare some of his precious time for his daughter. 

Arshelly knew this all too well, which was why she was crying at the principal’s uncomfortable request. 

“Hush!”

Han Ye-Sun softly stoked Arshelly’s back. 

“It’s alright, I’ll try talking to the principal about it.”

“R-Really?”

“Of course~! I’m your homeroom teacher, aren’t I? So if you have something going on, I can take care of it for you!”

“Hing…”

“If your dad doesn’t have time, you can bring your grandmother in. I’m sure a text was sent out today about it.”

“...!”

“You don’t have to worry~!”

“Okay...”

Arshelly answered in a powerless voice.

“Good girl.”

“Ms. Han…”

“Alright, alright, let’s go back to class.”

Han Ye-Sun grabbed Arshelly’s tiny hand. 

***

Three days passed. 

“Hurrah for His Majesty, Kang Chul-In!”

“Hurrah for the Valhalla Kingdom!”

“Woooohooooo!”

The people of the Valhalla Kingdom all shouted passionately at Kang Chul-In’s, who came back on the Zeppelin, return.

“Mm!”

Kang Chul-In was satisfied looking at the scene. It was an amazing victory. He hadn’t participated in the war himself, but they had been overwhelmingly victorious, so he was extremely glad. 

“Your Majesty~!”

Just then, the voice that Kang Chul-In was the most afraid of was heard from behind him. 

Flinch!

Kang Chul-In jumped. 

“Congratulations on your victory!”

Timothy was looking at him with a thick stack of papers. 

“Y-Yeah… thanks. Timothy… what… is it…?”

Kang Chul-In was extremely nervous at Timothy’s arrival. 

Kang Chul-In did bring a lot of money in, but he was still a Lord that took from others. 

There were more days when he didn’t earn a single penny than when he did earn something. 

Of course he would be nervous around Timothy since he used money as soon as it came in. 

“Your Majesty! This Timothy was amazed by you!”

“Hm? Amazed?”

Kang Chul-In was surprised at the unexpected compliment. Timothy almost never complimented him. 

“With the compensation, we have some breathing space in our finances! If this goes on, we’ll be rich in 6 months!”

“...!”

“Also, because the third queen, Lee Chae-Rin, provided us with a large amount of funds, we’re no longer a poor kingdom!”

It was the best news he heard in awhile. 

He felt like 10 years worth of frustrations were swept away. 

“Your Majesty, I’ll leave it to you!”

“Got you! Just trust me!”

“Oh, and also...?”

“Hm?”

“I’ll take you to the Lord’s Hall first!”

Timothy led Kang Chul-In. 

What is it?

Kang Chul-In wondered what his goblin secretary was doing, but he just followed him. 

Then, he was touched by seeing something amazing. 

“...!”

Sparkle sparkle!

A gold light. 

The light that was shining like the rising sun was brighter than anything he had ever seen before. 

“I-Is…!?

A new throne was opening its mouth wide open where the mithril throne had been. 

Sharp teeth. Long horns. It was shining brighter than normal. This large throne was one that fit the Supreme King of the West, no, the emperor of the continent:  The Gold Dragon Bone Royal Throne. 

“Is it already... finished?”

“Yes, sir!”

“Amazing… very… much better than last time…”

The “last time” he was talking about was when he took the throne from Rothschild in the past. It also meant that the throne of now and the throne of the past were the same! But it was actually different. The throne of the past was something that was made by cheaply cutting the Gold Dragon Bone into two, but now, it was decorated with blood diamonds, Boyd diamonds, and other expensive jewels like mithril. 

He could see the intricate skill of the dwarves on it. 

“Your Majesty, congratulations on your victory!”

“Congratulations!”

“Hurrah for his Majesty!”

“Hurrah!”

“Hip hip hooray!”

All the servants in the Lord’s Hall cheered for Kang Chul-In’s victory. 

Whew… this is what I’m king for…

Kang Chul-In thought that there was no better benefit of being a king as he walked down the red carpet. 

“Husband?”

“Husband.”

“Uh… your Majesty…”

Just then, three women stopped him. 

“...!”

Kang Chul-In was taken aback. 

“W-What…”

“Are you busy? Husband?”

“Husband… you’re busy these days, hm?”

“I understand you’re busy but…”

They were being forceful. 

Ninetails, Lee Chae-rin, and even Skadi were being like this?

“Husband… let’s talk.”

“Husband? Can you make some time for me?”

“Your Majesty… just a moment…”

It seemed they had been planning this. 

Uh…

Kang Chul-In followed his wives without even sitting on his throne. 

“Husband.”

His second wife (technically his first) spoke on behalf of all of them. 

“What is it?”

“You’re too much.”

“...?”

“I knew you were busy…”

“Wait.”

Kang Chul-In cut Ninetails off. 

“Is the reason why you’re being like this because… I wasn’t attentive…?”

“No!”

“...!”

“My sisters and I here know that you’re busy. Your wives aren’t that close-minded! Why don’t you know that we can understand you?!”

“...!”

“Humph!”

Kang Chul-In was speechless at Ninetails' scary counterattack. He thought she was upset he hadn’t been attentive to them, but it seemed he was wrong. 

“Mm... can you tell me what exactly it is? If you don’t tell me, I won’t know," Kang Chul-In asked Nineitails in a quiet voice. 

He was a wise man. 

There was probably a legitimate reason his wives were being like this; if he became angry, it would be for nothing. 

“It’s about our daughter, Arshelly!”

“...!”

“Don’t you want to know how our lovely daughter is doing in school?!”

“T-That!”

It was a completely unexpected reason. 

Arshelly?

Why was she bringing up a child who was doing completely fine at school?

“Mm… I’m not that curious.” 

Kang Chul-In tilted his head. 

“What?!”

“Arshelly is my daughter. She’s probably doing well, so I don’t think there’s any reason for me to be concerned.”

It was true.

Obviously, it wasn’t because Kang Chul-In didn’t care about Arshelly. 

Arshelly was a genius. 

She had already absorbed the culture of Earth like a sponge, and she was smart enough to study what high schoolers learned by herself. 

She had completely understood a series of math books in merely a week. 

“I heard from Mother. Arshelly gets along with her friends well, and she receives confessions from boys every day. She always gets 100% for grades too. I don’t think I need to…”

“What about family communication?”

“F-Family communication?!”

“There’s going to be a parent observation class soon.”

“...!”

“Even though our daughter is outstanding, she’s only a little girl! I think we need to visit our daughter’s school at least once since we’re her parents! Our daughter will be upset if we don’t do that!”

“U-Upset?!”

“All the other moms and dads will be at school!”

“Oh…!”

Kang Chul-In finally understood what Ninetails was saying. Yes, Arshelly would probably be upset. It wasn’t like he passed away like his father had, so why wouldn’t he be able to attend the observation class? In fact, Kang Chul-In had felt the absence of his father more than ever when he was in school. 

“When is it?”

 Kang Chul-In asked. 

“Today, it’s today!”

“R-Really!?”

“You have to go now! There’s no time to be concerned about your new throne!”

“How much time is left?”

“1 hour!”

“Dammit!”

Kang Chul-In cursed and began to move right away, his new throne already forgotten. 

“Let’s go!”

Pang! Boom!

Kang Chul-In became a ray of light and dashed to the Warp Gate that led to Earth.

Taking care of what happened after the war? That was for Kwak Jung to do. Right now, the parent observation class was more important to Kang Chul-In. 

“H-Husband! I’m going too!”

“Husband! Let’s go together!”

“Your Majesty…!”

The three women began to run after Kang Chul-In. 

Of course they had to go since they were also Arshelly’s parents!

They didn’t care about how people from Earth would view them. 

My daughter! I’m really sorry… you have such a bad father!

It wasn’t because he didn’t care. 

He just hadn’t been able to realize it because he had been so busy. 

As expected of my wives.

In a way, he was also thankful. 

They weren’t being jealous of each other or were fighting for his attention. Instead, they were nagging him for Arshelly, someone they didn’t have any mixed blood with!

***

30 minutes later. 

“Oh, it’s you!”

On Earth, the CEO of Galaxy Corporation, Kwon Hyung-woo, answered Kang Chul-In’s call for the first time in a while. 

“Are you busy these…”

-This is the 63 Building.

“H-Huh?”

-Send a helicopter immediately!

“H-Helicopter?”

-Now!

Why was he suddenly telling him to send a helicopter? 

It was a request, no, an order, that he couldn’t understand. 

“Is something going…”

-There’s only 20 minutes left until my daughter’s parent observation class. 

“W-What?!”

-There’s too much traffic! Now!

Kwon Hyung-woo thought Kang Chul-In was being extra. He wanted a helicopter just to go to a parent observation class?

“Mm.. alright, I’ll send one right over.”

However, old man Kwon couldn’t resist the order. What would happen to him if he said no?

15 minutes later. 

Du du du du du du!

Kang Chul-In entered the helicopter with Ninetails, Lee Chae-rin, and Skadi. 

“Here’s your suit, sir!”

A worker for Galaxy Corporation quickly handed Kang Chul-In a suit, shoes, tie, and belt. 

“This is for you, ma’ams!”

There were also clothes for the three wives. 

Of course, makeup wasn’t needed. 

His wives were more beautiful than celebrities even without any makeup. 

***

Right before the observation class began, the classroom was bustling. 

Just then, everyone heard the sound of a loud propeller, and the window to the classroom came crashing down. 

Clatter!

“Whew!”

The man who just broke threw the window sighed and slowly stood up. 

“D-Dad!”

“S-Son!”

The first people to recognize Kang Chul-In, known as the Supreme King of the West, Fool for His Daughter, and the Master of Breaking Windows, were his family, Arshelly and Park Sun-Ja. 

They were extremely surprised because they weren’t expecting to see Kang Chul-In here!

“Kang… Chul-In…”

While everyone was surprised, there was someone who was glaring at him while biting their lower lip. 

“Bas… bastard…”
