“Mr. Kang Chul-In himself?”
“Husband, film it with your camera!”
“Keum… I wonder what someone like that will say.”
The reactions to the fact that Kang Chul-In was giving a lecture were explosive. Kang Chul-In was someone that you might meet once in a lifetime; he was rarer than a celebrity. Also, he was a hero who had protected South Korea from scary monsters. Listening to a lecture from such a man? This was a huge honor for the little seedlings and for the parents.
However, the problem was that Kang Chul-In didn’t have anything to say to these nose-snifflers.
How am I supposed to fill 40 minutes up?
What was he supposed to talk about?
How to use servants? Or how to cleanly cut the neck off your opponent? How to make Rothschild suffer?
Anything Kang Chul-In was good at wouldn’t be good for the children.
Just then, Han Ye-Sun spoke to Kang Chul-In with slit eyes.
“Are you starting?”
“Look, the children are waiting.”
“Stay strong, Arshelly’s father.”
They said that if a woman had a grudge, she could even make it snow in June. That was the Han Ye-Sun of now.
Han Ye-Sun’s glare on Kang Chul-In was so sharp that it was like the blade of a knife.
This is revenge!
Kang Chul-In’s face filled with surprise.
He had many enemies over his two lives, but this was the first time he was paying the price for stepping on someone’s goodwill (or love as they said). In the first place, he had never actually paid the price. But it was different this time. He was about to get hit without even being able to fight back. If they were fighting with swords he would’ve stopped her, but he didn’t know what to do since she was getting him like this.
His work of the past. This was the price he had to pay for making a girl cry.
Kang Chul-In slowly breathed in and out.
About 30 elementary-schoolers including Arshelly were looking at him with stars in their eyes.
Dad! You’re so cool!
Arshelly looked like a princess gazing up at her knight in shining armor, and Park Sun-Ja’s eyes weren’t too far off from that either.
Son! You’re so impressive!
No, they were shining even more. This situation brought her happiness that she wouldn’t even have dreamed of.
I can’t escape this.
Kang Chul-In folded his thoughts of trying to break through the window again to run away. Then, he began to write something on the board. It read the following:
It was a bright topic, which was unlike him.
“Can everyone see this?”
Kang Chul-In pointed at the sentence that was his way of getting out of this.
The students responded.
“Then, I’ll begin now.”
Kang Chul-In continued with confidence.
Yeah, this kind of stuff was easy as cake. A man should be confident!
“And that’s it for the lecture.”
The lecture was a memorable one that both adults and children were able to relate to. It was an excellent lecture.
Clap clap clap!
Applause came from everywhere.
“Wow~! Arshelly’s dad is so cool!”
“I’m a fan, Uncle!”
“My dad isn’t cool… humph!”
The children were ecstatic. Hearing Kang Chul-In speak about ‘the other world’ was interesting in itself, but he added the topic of ‘dreams’ on top of that and made it seem special, so of course their reactions would be like this.
“Wow… a successful man is definitely different.”
“S-So cool! Mr. Kang Chul-In!”
“Ke, so that was why life was hard. Haaa… I don’t even remember what my dreams were when I was younger…”
“It was a good healing talk in this cold hard-to-live world…”
The reactions of the parents matched the children’s.
“Dad is the best!”
“You’re so impressive, son!”
“Husband is so cool~!”
“I love you, Honey~!”
“Y-your Majesty... That was such an amazing lecture!”
His family. Yes, his family was smiling brightly.
Keuk… I’m experiencing all kinds of things.
Kang Chul-In laughed inwardly.
He wondered if this was what a family was about.
Was this true happiness?
He didn’t know what he had done all his life to miss these things.
“What do you do when monsters from that world try to eat you? Do you…”
It was time to answer questions.
“I hit their necks.”
“You hit their… what?”
The innocent young boy was shocked at Kang Chul-In’s response.
“S-So… I was saying…”
“This is what influences life the most whether its humans or monsters.”
Kang Chul-In tapped his head.
“So here, if you hit the necks there will be an excessive amount of blood that is spilled and the bodily movements will stop.”
“Of course, there are some situations where that doesn’t work. In those cases, you can cut the limbs off or beat them up. You can cut them up into small pieces and…”
Unfortunately, Kang Chul-In couldn’t finish his answer.
“Huwangg~! I-It’s too gruesome!”
It was because the young boy who had been listening to his answer paled and burst out in tears.
The nice atmosphere quickly became awkward because Kang Chul-In’s answers to the continued questions were all inappropriate.
Q: Are there fairies in that world?
Q: What species are the fairies?
A: They’re a poor species that get caught as slaves when people are bored.
A: They’re nice to look at so they’re usually used for trafficking.
Q: I want to explore that world by becoming a supernatural!
A: Dream on.
Or like this,
Q: I want to go out with Arsh…
A: Shut up.
Q: T-That’s not fa…
A: I wouldn’t give you my daughter even over my dead body.
Thanks to that, cold air swirled inside of the classroom. No one was able to stop Kang Chul-In from talking. Why? They thought that if they talked back to the strongest and evilest villain on Earth, they might die.
“Mm… we’ll stop the questions and answers. We’ll take 10 minutes to speak about class now~.”
Han Ye-Sun quickly stepped up, and the situation ended.
“You’ve done well, Arshelly’s father.”
While everyone in the class was busy talking to each other, Han Ye-Sun approached him and whispered in a low voice that only he could hear.
“It was a very memorable lecture, very. Genuineness… yes, genuineness. They say a genuine heart moves people, hm?”
Her words were sharp.
It was like she was mocking Kang Chul-In’s lecture for not being genuine.
Kang Chul-In’s face instantly crumpled.
He never imagined he would hear that word from Han Ye-Sun’s mouth again…
“Since you’re a man with three wives...”
“That’s how good your speaking skills are now, hm?”
It was a sly sarcastic statement that dug into Kang Chul-In’s weak point.
“Anyways, I’m glad you seem happy now.”
“Meet me after this.”
Han Ye-Sun requested for a meeting with him.
“Is it a parent-teacher conference?”
Kang Chul-In asked.
It was an important question. The answer would be determined by whether it was official business or not.
However, Han Ye-Sun’s motives were completely personal.
Kang Chul-In shook his head.
There was no way. He wasn’t weak or soft enough to be shaken by his first love. There was anything left of their relationship anymore. Also, wasn’t Kang Chul-In the head of a family now?
“Then, I’ll be off now.”
Kang Chul-In turned around.
“I’ll tell you something interesting. So make some time.”
“I don’t need it.”
“You’ll be interested.”
“I don’t think so… you’ll definitely be interested…”
However, Han Ye-Sun was confident.
“Aren’t you the Chul-In oppa that I know? The oppa that I know won’t stay still if someone bothers his daughter…?”
Kang Chul-In whipped around. It was something he had done subconsciously. Why? Because he was a fool for his daughter!
It was too late when he realized he was baited.
“I have a parent-teacher conference, so I’ll meet you in the all-purpose room on the 5th floor when I’m done. That’s an empty classroom that even the staff doesn’t use often.”
“Then I’ll be waiting.”
Han Ye-Sun slightly pushed Kang Chul-In away and took her podium back.
“Everyone, you listened to Arshelly’s father’s speech well, right?”
“Alright, it must have been hard to focus on Uncle’s talk, so I’m glad you listened well.”
It was a mysterious sentence filled with beef.
“Okay, that’s the end of today’s class.”
And like that, Kang Chul-In finished the parent observation class.
Lee Gong-Myung ripped Rothschild’s skin and bones apart and drank his blood with a wide open mouth.
“At the very least…”
He was muttering to himself in a mad voice.
“You… will be inside of me… Alex…”
It was an act that could be perceived in a religious way.
On Earth, the Fore people of Papua New Guinea believed that if you ate the dead body of a tribe member, you would be with them forever . Lee Gong-Myung was thinking the same thing, eating his lover’s, no, one-sided love’s dead body. He was trying to become one with Rothschild by eating him.
Tears didn’t stop pouring down Lee Gong-Myung’s eyes.
“I’ll… take revenge… you can… watch... Hm? Since you and I are one now… you’ll be able to see it…”
It was a scary madness. It was closer to obsession than love. After all, Lee Gong-Myung was someone who spent years at Rothschild’s side with his unspeakable feelings.
He had left him without saying goodbye, so maybe the madness could be expected.
“Just you wait, Kang Chul-In…”
Lee Gong-Myung left Rothschild’s remains behind and walked away. He was planning on forcing Kang Chul-In to ruin. He needed an army, as well as a force that could stand against the Valhalla Kingdom.
Surprisingly, Lee Gong-Myung wasn’t headed towards the Cyamodus territory in the north.
“As of now…”
A mysterious statement escaped Lee Gong-Myung’s mouth.
“You’re perfect, Atul Ramanujan…”
Overlord Atul Ramanujan. He was the only person who could fight against Overlord Ao Xin’s army.
Also, he was something who had been in charge of the Baldur Alliance’s numbers in the past that only Kang Chul-In and Alfred knew of.
This meant that Atul Ramanujan was specialized in a war of numbers…
Ongok Elementary School, in the all-purpose room on the 5th floor.
There was silence between the two who had met each other for the first time in a long time.
Neither of them opened their mouths easily.
How long is she going to be hung up on the past?
They just looked at each other.
“Get to the point.”
Eventually, Kang Chul-In spoke up first.
“Who’s bothering my daughter?”
Han Ye-Sun shook her head.
“I can’t lose a fish I caught like that."
“You’ll just swim away after biting the bait.”
That was true.
There was a time he had been a fresh teenager in the past, but it wasn’t like he wasn’t a lunatic back then either.
“Anyways... Congratulations on your marriage.”
“You’re really amazing.”
“You have three wives.”
“It’s interesting. I didn’t know my first love was into polygamy.”
It was an attack that Kang Chul-In couldn’t refute.
But Kang Chul-In wasn’t normal.
“I’m a Lord, no, the king of a country.”
“What’s so wrong about a king marrying for convenience for his country?”
He hadn’t wanted to have multiple wives in the first place, so Kang Chul-In felt wronged.
Just when Kang Chul-In was about to continue, Han Ye-Sun shot forward like a bolt and ran into his arms.
