Chapter 280: Han Ye-Sun (2)

On the rooftop of Ongok Elementary School’s Building B, three women were watching the 5th floor of Building A. 

“T-that woman!”

 Lee Chae-Rin exclaimed in surprise. It was when Han Ye-Sun had jumped into Kang Chul-In’s arms. 

“...”

Skadi was silent. Silence was her only answer since her relationship with Kang Chul-In hadn’t gone that far. 

“Hm? So Husband was a womanizer I see! I always knew that.”

Unlike Lee Chae-Rin, Ninetails acted like she was amused. 

“U-unnie…”

Lee Chae-Rin spoke up in a concerned voice. 

“Hm?”

“Who do you think that fox… n-no, that sly woman is?”

“I don’t know?”

Ninetails shrugged her shoulders. 

“I wouldn’t know.”

“Aren’t you curious?”

“No.”

“...”

“Not even a little bit.”

Was she confident? Ninetails didn’t seem to care about Kang Chul-In’s apparent affair. 

“He’s…”

“What?”

“Mm... so Husband is…”

“...?”

“He’s impossible to have to yourself, anyway.”

“Ah!”

Lee Chae-Rin realized what kind of man Kang Chul-In was again. Yes, even if Kang Chul-In had another woman, there was no need to make a big deal out of it. It was impossible to stop him, and only she would be hurt if she cared about it. 

However...

“Well, we still have to watch her, yeah?”

“Watch… her?”

“She might be another one of us so we have to know what kind of woman she is.”

“...!”

“Like a kind of a test.”

Ninetails smiled. 

“So let’s quietly watch, sisters.”

“Yes, unnie.”

“Okay.”

Lee Chae-Rin and Skadi nodded their heads. 

***

Meanwhile, Kang Chul-In, not knowing he was being watched, was shocked by Han Ye-Sun’s sudden attack. It was unlike himself. 

“...!”

Kang Chul-In was surprised. Han Ye-Sun was quick. Too quick. She was in his arms before he realized it. 

“Bad... bastard…”

Han Ye-Sun sobbed in Kang Chul-In’s arms.

“I… I! Heuk…!”

“...”

“I love you so much… I missed you and wanted to be with you…”

“...”

“How could you not meet me even once? You didn’t answer a single call! Heuk!”

She was so upset that she started to spew her words out. 

Kang Chul-In’s shirt was soaked with her tears, so he could feel how much she had missed him. 

“I… never forgot about you…”

“...”

“I still… think about you... everyday…”

“...”

“And don’t be mistaken...”

“About what?”

“It’s not because you’re successful…”

“Yep.”

Kang Chul-In almost burst out laughing, but he was able to hold it in with his supernatural endurance. 

Everyone knows that. 

He knew better than anyone that Han Ye-Sun wasn’t a gold-digger. When Kang Chul-In was poor, she was a dedicated woman who had looked after him without any complaints. Han Ye-Sun was also the first person to take him to an expensive family restaurant in his entire life. She was also the reason why Kang Chul-In wore the expensive “Jazzmaster” watch from the Hamilton Company, which he accepted because she kept crying about it. When he was serving in the military, she had even sent him letters and goods, even signing up to meet him… although he rejected everything.

There was even a time when she sent some money to Park Sun-Ja secretly. 

I know… I know too well. 

A passing dog would laugh if they heard that Han Ye-Sun was approaching Kang Chul-In because she wanted to enjoy a lavish lifestyle by marrying him. 

Han Ye-Sun. Her affection was 100% genuine, and it was dedicated. 

“It’s a relief that it’s not.”

However, Kang Chul-In didn’t express a tiny bit of what he was thinking. 

“I-It’s a relief... that it’s not?”

“It’s a harsh world.”

“...”

“Of course you have to have your guard up when a strange woman approaches you.”

“O-Oppa!”

Instead, he pretended like he was suspecting Han Ye-Sun. 

“How… how could you…”

“Are you something to me?”

“...!”

“We’re not in any relationship.”

A counterattack. Kang Chul-In’s cold and dry words were like a sword in Han Ye-Sun’s heart. 

“Oppa…”

“You and I were finished 12 years ago.”

“...”

“What do we have between us now that everything’s over?”

“Do you have to say it like that?”

“I only said the truth.”

Kang Chul-In was colder than ever. 

Nothing can be done. 

Han Ye-Sun’s heart? He knew how she felt. However, he had to pretend not to know because it would become complicated. It would be more polite to coldly draw the line than to have an unclear stance.

“Fine… okay…”

“Move.”

“...!”

“Don’t touch me.”

Kang Chul-In roughly moved Han Ye-Sun off of him. He wasn’t the Kang Chul-In Han Ye-Sun knew from the past. The struggling high schooler and college student who was just entering society didn’t exist anymore. Just the Supreme King of the West, Kang Chul-In. 

“Bad bastard…”

“That’s not the first time I’ve heard that.”

“You’ve changed…”

“Everyone changes.”

“No…”

“...”

“That doesn’t mean they become a war fanatic.”

“A war fanatic?”

An unexpected sentence came from Han Ye-Sun’s mouth. 

“I heard all about it.”

“What?”

“The World Community.”

“...!

“Foreign adventurers occasionally put news of that world on there.”

She was right. Not all adventurers focused on dungeon subjugations or monster hunting. 

“Oppa…”

“...?”

“Why are you going that far?”

“That’s…”

The answer was too simple. 

Ambition. 

That one word was behind all of Kang Chul-In’s movement. 

Uniting the continent!

Controlling the huge otherworld called Pangaea was his great mission. 

“Can’t you stop? You’re blowing out of proportion right…”

“Stop.”

Kang Chul-In stopped Han Ye-Sun from speaking. 

“I won’t accept interference on what I do.”

“Oppa…”

“Don’t cross the line.”

That was the end. 

“I’ll think of the thing with Arshelly just as bait that you used.”

“...”

“I’m off.”

Kang Chul-In turned away from Han Ye-Sun. 

Someone who bothered Arshelly? He could find that out himself. It was just that hearing it directly from Arshelly would be faster. 

“Kang Chul-In… until the end…”

Han Ye-Sun growled at Kang Chul-In. 

“Fine, go! Go then!”

Kang Chul-In didn’t stop. 

“Are you happy? Living like that?”

He turned around to answer. 

“I’m happy.”

“...!”

“Really.”

It was the truth. 

Family. 

It was a happiness that he didn’t know about in the past.

“Even having 3 women?”

“Of course.”

“More than me…”

“At the very least...”

Before he left through the door, Kang Chul-in smiled faintly. 

“My wives don’t criticize me for what I do.”

“...!”

“They just trust me, follow me, and love me.”

Creak...

The door opened. 

“And I also love them.”

Kang Chul-In left the all-purpose classroom. 

“Really… what a really bad bastard… just you wait…”

Han Ye-Sun muttered to herself alone in the classroom. 

***

While Kang Chul-In was having a good time, in Vilhelm’s bedroom deep in the Bifrost territory...

“Husband… heuk…” 

Mei Ling cried out. 

“Until when are you going to ignore me? Hm?”

“...”

“Please, just look at me once…”

She was almost begging. After that day, Mei Ling had never looked Vilhelm in the eye. Of course, he hadn’t said a word to her either. 

“Husband… I’ll never…”

It was then. 

“Of course not.”

Vilhelm answered in a frosty voice. It was the first thing he said in 2 weeks. 

“You’re my wife. “

“H-Husband! Are you not angry any…”

“You have to be my wife.”

“What are you…”

“Your marriage with me symbolizes the bond between Overlord Albrecht Vilhelm and Overlord Ao Xin.”

“...!”

“There’s nothing I can do even if I hate it.”

Puk!

Mei Ling froze at the pain that felt like it was piercing her heart. 

Hate it? It was true she had done a great sin, but she thought that was a bit too much. 

“H-How can you say something like…”

“You trash-like bitch.”

“...!”

“You still don’t get it?”

“Husband…!”

“I was going to kill you by ripping you apart for landesverrat [1].”

“...”

“The only reason why I didn’t… is because you’re Ao Xin’s little sister.”

Vilhelm glared at Mei Ling icily. 

Flinch!

Mei Ling trembled. 

Was he… always like this?

She had always thought Vilhelm was a kind person. Before the incident, he had always treated her with respect. 

“Quietly,” Vilhelm continued, “live quietly without being noticed by me, you trash-like bitch.”

“...!”

“The same goes for your son.”

It was cruel. Vilhelm treated his son like he wasn’t human after losing. 

“...”

Mei Ling felt so wrong and upset that she was speechless. 

Once I rule this continent… I’ll kill you first, along with Ao Xin.

Vilhelm turned away. Yes, his current ally Ao Xin would become his political enemy the moment that Pangaea was unified. He would end it then. Mei Ling and Ao Xin. 

Even his son, Viktor Vilhelm, who had the same blood as them. 

***

“So there’s someone bothering my daughter, hm?” 

Kang Chul-In growled as he left the classroom. 

It didn’t matter whoever it was. He was planning on sending them to the Nidavellir mines after beating them up. 

Bzz!

His phone vibrated. 

[The principal did it. I had to calm Arshelly down after he told her to bring you here. Take care of your daughter. 

-A girl thrown away by a bad bastard.]

“Mm!”

He was a bit bothered by the last part, but since he got the information from her, he wasn’t just baited. 

“The principal…”

Kang Chul-In repeated those words to himself as he moved to Building A. 

Swoosh!

The door opened. 

“O-O!”

The principal, who was on the phone, was surprised after seeing Kang Chul-In. 

“W-Who’s this!? Kang…”

“First.”

“Pardon?”

“You should hang up first.” 

Kang Chul-In spoke in a cold voice.

“People get surprised if they hear pigs squealing.”

“W-What are you…”

“Bite down on your handkerchief at least.”

“Huh?”

Kang Chul-In took a step forward. 

“You dare to push my daughter?”

He wore a vicious smile. 

The mental training was beginning.
