“Wow, Captain-nim. That is indeed annoying.”
They were on an observation deck where they could see all of Kyoto.
Yoo Jaeha's jaw was dropped as he looked out at the city.
“Wow, that’s crazy.
Is this Japan or Italy?”
It was a legitimate question.
Approximately three days after Ju-Heon stole the tomb information from Lee Seol-A…
One of the 7 Great Tombs appeared in Kyoto.
They were observing just outside the Tomb Appearance area, but the city itself had turned into a mess.
There were buildings in a style of architecture that did not match the Japanese shooting up.
‘They seem to be ancient Roman art style.’
They were very fancy.
Hellenistic golden decorations, extremely technical round galleries and baths, frescos that would make people gasp, and even extremely posh Roman Empire’s streets…
These buildings were shooting up through the streets and in between buildings, destroying the city as they rose.
It was as if they were trying to get rid of this Japanese area and forcibly fill it with the radiant Roman civilization.
Of course, Pandora had sent an urgent alarm about the tomb a long time ago.
[There is chaos in Kyoto, Japan after the appearance of a tomb! Pandora believes the Tomb Appearance is ranging 1,027km² in area and has already overtaken Kyoto!]
[Pandora has given a level 3 Evacuation-Grade alarm and both Pandora soldiers and Japanese JSDF are quickly……!]
Of course, this emergency notice was not the only thing on the news.
[Archaeologists have determined that the tomb's architecture that has appeared in Kyoto belongs to the ancient Roman Empire and Italy is strongly claiming the tomb as theirs in response.]
[However, Greece is claiming that this is actually Greek architecture and also fighting for the rights……]
Ju-Heon started to laugh after hearing the news coming out of his phone.
‘Based on the size of this thing, the artifact is at least an S-Grade artifact.’
That was why it was normal for the entire world to want to take it for themselves, which resulted in numerous hyenas gathering in Kyoto.
And one of those hyenas were…
“What the hell, did you all come here to try to get into the tomb as well?”
The person who approached Ju-Heon while saying that was TKBM's Lee Jin-A.
This was the lawyer who ended up giving him a strip show after coming to scout him in the past.
Yoon Shi Woo was with her as well.
Chairman Kwon must have sent them after hearing about one of the 7 Great Tombs opening.
However, Yoon Shi Woo looked ready to kill as soon as he saw Ju-Heon and Yoo Jaeha.
“I got you bastards now. I remember how you got in our way at Pandora’s party last time!”
“Zhuge Kongming is ignoring all of our calls because of you! How are you going to compensate us for our losses?!”
However, unlike these two grumbling people, Ju-Heon just scoffed.
"Who are you guys again?”
"What did you say?!”
Yoo Jaeha, who recognized Yoon Shi Woo, started to laugh as well.
“Hey hey, you shouldn’t lie like that. Why is that our fault? Isn't it because you guys are useless?”
“You really want to start…!”
They heard a stern voice at that moment.
“Department head-nim, Deputy Lee-nim. I understand how you two must feel but this is not the time to fight.”
An unfamiliar man walked up next to Yoon Shi Woo.
“I apologize for these two’s rudeness. Our Department head-nim has been dealing with a lot of issues lately.”
The man bowed to apologize and handed a TKBM excavation team business card.
Yang Chen who could be considered one of the chief executives of TKBM’s excavation team was looking at Ju-Heon with a cleverly sparkling gaze.
‘Seo Ju-Heon, the hidden first place that Pandora warned us about.’
Chairman Kwon and Yoon Shi Woo who had been defeated by Ju-Heon wanted nothing more than to kill him, but he was different.
He recognized Ju-Heon’s abilities.
‘This bastard is someone who will make it big. We need to take a step back no matter what.’
This was why Yang Chen smiled as if he was a nice person.
"We have no desire to be enemies with you, Mr. Ju-Heon. It seems that our Department head-nim caused you some trouble in the past as well, please feel free to contact me at this number if there’s ever anything bothering you. My name is Yang Chen.”
However, just as he said that…
They heard a scoff before something that made all of them gasp happened.
Ju-Heon had ruthlessly ripped up the business card Yang Chen handed him.
He did it right in front of his face!
Yang Chen, the woman, and Yoon Shi Woo all became shocked as the excavation team business card was ripped.
He was clearly offending them.
This was not something Ju-Heon would normally do.
However, Ju-Heon threw the ripped pieces of the business card into the air.
“I'm warning you. If you show that motherf*cking face of yours ever again, you will be the first to die in a tomb.”
They became anxious at Ju-Heon’s hostility, but Ju-Heon had been glaring ever since he noticed this bastard.
It was an obvious reaction.
‘This damn Judas-like bastard.’
There was no way Ju-Heon would not know this person's face.
Yang Chen was a part of his excavation team and the person who put them in the tomb that led to their deaths.
Yang Chen was a talented person, and he was like a brother to the other tomb raiding team members even though he was the last to join the team.
However, this bastard turned on them and helped Chairman Kwon get rid of them.
That was why Ju-Heon could never forget the face of the bastard who brought the crow's tomb mission to them.
‘Ju-Heon. You and the rest of the tomb raiding team members will be free if you take care of this job. I can't go with you this time because I'm injured, but it shouldn't be a difficult tomb for you based on my investigation.’
‘Fine, just tell the Chairman to keep his promise.’
‘Okay. Ah, use this if it becomes dangerous. It's an escape-type artifact. Make sure to use it if you end up in trouble.’
‘Oh, and leave the punks who aren’t part of the tomb raiding team behind this time. They’ll just hold you back if you take them with you.’
‘Who knows? They are actually quite helpful inside the tombs.’
‘Ju-Heon. This is an important job. I know you enjoy developing people to their full potential, but there's no time.’
He should have realized it at that point.
He should have realized that it was all a ploy to get rid of them from the world completely!
Ju-Heon's tomb raiding team was the best but also the one that Chairman Kwon feared the most.
He promised Yang Chen a spot as a director for taking care of them.
‘All the information this bastard gave me was fake.’
And the artifact he had given Ju-Heon claiming it was an escape-type was a self-restraint artifact.
Thanks to that, his precious subordinates were killed without being able to resist.
The crow's tomb was an Evil Divine-Grade tomb, but the reason they couldn’t even resist was because of this bastard.
‘I should actually thank him for that.’
The corners of Ju-Heon's lips went up viciously.
It was because he ended up being unable to resist because of that self-restraint artifact that he fell into the spot where he met the crow!
‘I met the crow and got a chance at a new life thanks to you, Yang Chen.’
Revenge wasn't his life goal, but he wasn’t going to forgive this opportunistic bastard.
He would take care of this bastard the same way he would take care of Chairman Kwon in the future. He would do it after gathering all of the tomb raiding team members who unfairly died in that tomb.
But he needed to take a monarch position first to do that.
“Anyway, I warned you. I can see you trying to suck up so get lost.”
It wasn’t hard to pretend to be friendly with this bastard, but Ju-Heon was not nice enough to calmly shake hands with someone who stabbed his back.
‘I also don't want to give him any unnecessary leeway.’
Maybe that was the reason.
Yang Chen was trying not to show it, but his expression as he stood there with shaking fists was quite entertaining to watch.
Yoon Shi Woo was telling him, ‘see, I told you that you can't talk to this bastard.’
He continued to grumble to Yang Chen.
But Ju-Heon just coolly called Yoo Jaeha over.
“Ignore them and come. We're going into the tomb.”
Lee Jin-A watched Yoo Jaeha follow behind Ju-Heon before shouting in confusion.
“You're not trying to go in there with just the two of you, are you?”
“What if I am?”
Lee Jin-A seemed shocked and sneered at Ju-Heon after hearing his response.
“It’s useless even if you try to run wild here. Can't you see that all sorts of excavation teams are stuck at the entrance?”
That was the truth.
The entrance to this first of the 7 Great Tombs had already appeared.
The entrance was a large dirt wall that looked like a fortress that had appeared in the bamboo forest where the cult had been.
Most of the excavation teams headed there as their experiences told them that was the entrance but the results were terrible.
All of them ended up like this as soon as they entered the area.
‘Who cares about a tomb?! Sleeping is winning!’
‘Ah, let’s just forget about excavating! Just drop it all!’
‘Ah, just holding onto these artifacts is annoying. You can just have our artifacts!’
‘Damn it, being alive is annoying too! Let's all die! Even breathing is annoying!’
This was the situation.
The identity of the Great tomb that appeared in Kyoto was Sloth.
That was why forget trying to remove the seal of the tomb, the different national excavation teams were all sleeping on the ground or trying to commit suicide.
How could anybody enter a tomb that made you want to drop everything?
“That means that the tomb itself is preventing humans from entering. You can't go in.”
“She’s right. I saw that Zhuge Kongming was here earlier too, but even that cheat of a tomb clearer was planning on withdrawing because this tomb can’t be handled! But you bastards think you can do it?”
“Even the top 10 people Pandora warned about are all sucking their thumbs. So what makes you think you can do it?”
“Ho, do it if you think you can! Why do you think you are special when everybody is just blanking out?!”
Ju-Heon started to sneer.
“That’s only for you guys.”
This former tomb invader lightly tossed an artifact in his hand.
“What a spectacle.”
Ju-Heon who was confidently standing in front of the entrance clicked his tongue while looking at the people sprawled out on the ground.
The trial at the entrance seemed to be quite strong. Even Yoo Jaeha started to lay down as well.
Of course, Ju-Heon wasn’t affected.
[The entrance’s attack is reduced by half thanks to your tolerance.]
[Your feelings of sloth are reduced by half thanks to your tolerance.]
It was thanks to the Tolerance that the crow gave him. He was starting to feel lethargic, but it wasn’t to the point where he would lay down on the floor right away like Yoo Jaeha.
‘But I still need to hurry.’
Even he was starting to feel bored to the point he wanted to cause a fire or something.
The large dog Anubis started to sneer at Ju-Heon who was heading toward the entrance.
[What a troublesome Tomb. Humans are naturally lazy animals. This is not something you can handle with mental fortitude alone.]
Ju-Heon asked as if he was interested.
“Oh, is the condition for opening the entrance resisting with your mental fortitude?”
[Yes. You need to mentally overcome the slothfulness for that door to open. This condition is something that a human cannot clear. It is basically telling you not to come inside.]
Ju-Heon just scoffed at him.
“What bullshit are you talking about? We just need to go inside. And that’s why it looks like you'll need to do some work. Come on, doggie.”
Anubis started to speak in shock.
[This human is speaking like an idiot. I'll let you know that my army of the dead cannot destroy someone else’s tomb. You need to pass this trial with your mental fortitude to……]
“The corpse soldiers? I don’t need them. I just need your body.”
[W, what? My body?]
Anubis had an ominous feeling as a strong amount of Dominance was channeled inside him.
And then…There was the sudden scream of a dog and an unexplainable explosion in Kyoto.
Yoon Shi Woo who was observing the entrance from a distant observation deck gasped in shock.
The entrance seemed to have been destroyed by a strong energy as there was a hole in the door.
“C, crazy! The entrance was destroyed!”
"Excuse me?! Just how?!”
TKBM members were not the only ones who were shocked.
The excavation teams from different countries who had all come here and even the top 10 individuals Pandora had warned about were all shocked.
All the excavation teams quickly stood up at that moment.
"Damn it, that’s not the important thing right now! That means that someone entered the tomb right now!”
“Hurry up and get inside the tomb! The artifact!”
“Damn it, it’ll take at least 20 minutes to get there!”
They started to become frantic.
However, Ju-Heon who had used his Tomb Exploration (written that way but called Tomb Destruction by Ju-Heon) in combination with Anubis’s self-destruction to enter the tomb was laughing.
He would need to be crazy to go along and complete an artifact's condition.
“You just need to make a door if there is none and break through it if there is one.”
Of course, Anubis who had turned into an Ankh was dying.
[……Human. I will definitely kill you no matter what it takes.]
Ju-Heon didn't care as he woke Yoo Jaeha who was being dragged by the rope and started to speak.
“Number 1, wake up. The trial is gone now. Fix this doggie up and restore the artifacts I tell you to restore as much as possible. I’ll need to use them for the artifact here.”
Yoo Jaeha urgently jumped up and asked.
“Excuse me? The artifact here……? Captain-nim, do you know which artifact is in this tomb by chance?”
Of course he did.
He was able to tell after looking at the result of a Tomb Appearance from the observation deck.
“Which artifact is it?”
‘Which artifact is it?’
“A famous Roman Emperor you would know a lot about.”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
