Chapter 159: I am your father (1)

‘Holy shit.’

That was what Yoon Shi Woo and Chairman Kwon had both said at the same time.

They also had a different thought that they did not say out loud.

‘That lunatic is scamming again.’

It did seem that way. This was some impossible bullshit. Actually, this child scandal was something manufactured with Goebbels's artifact to destroy Seo Ju-Heon.
Ju-Heon would have had the child when he was 14 according to the article, but whatever.

Lies start as unbelievable, then become questioned, until it is repeated enough times and people start to believe it.

They had tricked the masses as Goebbels had done. Although the general public might be fooled, they wouldn't be tricked since they came up with the ruse themselves.

But what happened?

“Who did you say is whose son?”
“What did you just say?”

Ju-Heon just shamelessly smiled.

"What’s wrong? I should thank all of you. I was able to find my long-lost nephew thanks to all of you.”
“Hey, hold……!”

Louie Martin grabbed the back of his head.

Their own articles were being used against them! The more aggravating part were the reporters who came after smelling a scandal.

“A paternity test?”
“My goodness, the Monarch of Delicacies was wrong?”
“Unbelievable!”

Ju-Heon laughed and pulled the Monarch of Fraud over his shoulder. He wasn’t very happy because he was just a little kid.

“Alright, let’s go somewhere fun with this uncle.”
“Hey, are you crazy?! Let go of me!”

He might end up dead before he could send Seo Ju-Heon off!

"Damn it, let go… aaaah!”

The Monarch of Fraud screamed after seeing the blade up against his neck.

“Nephew. I'm going to start cutting off your arms and legs one by one if you keep moving.”

His gaze was so scary that Louie just quietly cried.

‘Damn it, I was crazy to scam a fucking bastard like this.’

Ju-Heon, who was ruthless to all artifact users regardless of their age, was the type to really cut off and sell parts of his body.

Ju-Heon jumped onto the window sill.

“Hey you, stop!”
“I'm not moving right now.”
“Hey!”
“Sorry, but I have to go since the child’s father is waiting.”

Yoon Shi Woo shouted after hearing Ju-Heon’s statement.

“Chairman-nim, I'm sure this is fake. How can he be Yoo Jaeha's son?!”
“Then I'll just say he’s my son.”

‘That bastard!’

It was clear what was going on. Ju-Heon's reaction made it obvious that they had changed who the dad was going to be but they were still scamming them.

This wasn't his first time dealing with Ju-Heon. This bastard was someone who would shamelessly say that the earth was square.

That was why they were certain.

‘This is a fake document.’

People made eye contact with each other and started to surround Ju-Heon.

“Leave the child while we’re asking nicely.”

The number of guards were increasing because of this issue at the Chairman's office.

Seol-A gulped. She could tell that they were artifact users based on the aura of artifacts she saw coming from them.

Even Ju-Heon needed to be wary of getting surrounded in enemy territory.

“Captain-nim.”

This was in New York, but it was still TKBM's territory.

The guards were slowly tightening the encirclement. A barrier made by artifacts was starting to cover the area from ceiling to floor.

The narrowing encirclement made Seol-A frown as she put a hand on her knife. It was a poisoned artifact.

‘Do you think I’ll let you guys threaten the Captain-nim again?’

Her eyes were full of murderous intent.

She couldn’t help but be even more sensitive after being killed because of TKBM once already.

It was at that moment. Did they notice her demeanor? Ju-Heon stopped her with his hand as if to tell her it was okay. Ju-Heon started to chuckle.

“Feel free to get a retest if you don't believe it.”

They sneered as if they couldn’t believe what Ju-Heon was saying.

“You still run your mouth without thinking. Fine, let’s get that retest. But someone from our side will do it since we can’t trust results from a bastard like you.”

They thought Ju-Heon would object, but he just started to laugh again.

“Sure. Whatever you want.”

Even Seol-A looked toward Ju-Heon in shock after hearing that.

She had not expected Ju-Heon to agree to a retest.

How could she? Seol-A already knew about Ju-Heon and Yoo Jaeha's futures. There was only one person on their Tomb raiding team who had a child.
Forget a child, the rest weren't even married.

That was why she believed that Ju-Heon had set this all up even though she didn't have all of the details. Getting it tested again would make that clear.

‘But Captain-nim… What is he thinking…’

Ju-Heon just looked outside without knowing what Seol-A was thinking.

“Then shall I go bring the baby's daddy…”

He heard a scream just as he was about to finish the sentence.

“Aaah! You bastard! Where the hell are you dragging me?!”

The scream was coming from the first floor.

And the moment that scream reached the fifth floor where Ju-Heon was at…

Clang!

Kaboom!

Glass broke and furniture crumbled as a new guest arrived.

[$#&#!]
Did you call me? Did you call me?

An excited rope appeared while carrying Yoo Jaeha.

Ju-Heon scoffed after seeing the rope. He hadn't called for it, but it didn't matter.

“The test subject is here. Let’s get started.”


“Captain-nim. Will it be okay?”

Seol-A looked toward Ju-Heon with an anxious expression. There should be a reason for all of this because Ju-Heon was doing it, but it was hard to understand.

“Captain-nim, aren't the results you brought a fake one Jaeha created? That’ll be revealed if the other side does it again.”

The person's appearance would change if the DNA was altered with.

That was why it was impossible to create a fake child. Even if he tried to do some sleight of hand, Chairman Kwon was not an idiot.

‘We can’t let them do the test again.’

On the other hand, Yoo Jaeha was showing a different reaction.

“I'm going to retake it. I'm going to retake the test. I can’t accept this!”

Yoo Jaeha was banging his head.

“How can I have a nine-years-old boy when I'm only twenty-six?! Something must have been wrong with the test!”

Ju-Heon took a sip of coffee.

“99.8% chance that he's my son? Don’t bullshit me.”
“I'm telling you the test was wrong. And there’s still the 0.2% chance that it’s wrong. 0.2% chance that he’s not my son. Isn’t that right?”

‘What is he saying?’

Seol-A, who figured out the situation after hearing his rant, dropped her jaw in shock.

“H, hold on. Really? The test wasn’t faked? He really is your son?!”
“Yeah! Would I act this way if it was fake? Huh?!”

Seol-A gasped after learning the truth.

“M, my goodness. You made a mistake when you were seventeen?! Then you left the baby momma like she was nothing?! You were that type of person?! I didn’t know you were such a bastard…!”
“Ow! No!”

Yoo Jaeha found this to be unfair.

“Forget seventeen, I was a virgin until I was twenty!”

Yoo Jaeha looked ready to cry at this wrongful accusation. Even he didn’t know what was going on.

It was fine that he put his own DNA to run the test. He just needed to change the names and results in the end.

But why did it show up positive even before he changed the results?! How could he not go crazy after that?!

“What the hell is going on?!”

Ju-Heon started to laugh.

“It’s obvious. Either the kid is lying about his age or you lost your virginity while you were drunk. Take good care of him.”
"Captaaaaaaaaaaaaain-niiiiiiiiiiiim!!”

Yoo Jaeha just lied down on the ground.

‘He’s saying all this because it's not happening to him!’

But Ju-Heon just chuckled like a kid who received some candy.

‘It really is legal. Perfectly legal.’

There was no need to do all sorts of annoying things to get his hands on Leonardo da Vinci's artifact now.

What else can they say when it shows that they are related? There was nothing more certain than this.
He continued to laugh as this whole situation was quite funny to him. A shocked Seol-A stealthily whispered to Ju-Heon.

“Captain-nim.”
“Yeah?”
“Did you have Jaeha do the DNA test knowing this would happen?”

Ju-Heon started to smile after thinking for a moment.

“Are you crazy? I'm not an omnipotent god.”

That was true.

“In that case…”

Ju-Heon focused on his phone as he answered.

“Something seemed off.”
“Off?”
“Yes. He has the Monarch of Fraud title that Jaeha should have had, his artistic talent, the fact that he had Leonardo da Vinci's artifact……”

They were too similar for it to be a coincidence.

Ju-Heon might rag on his subordinate, but he still approved of his abilities. He was a crybaby now, but he was a genius artist who had scammed different governments throughout the world in the past.
Well, nobody remembered Yoo Jaeha as an artist because of Richard burying him, but still…

"Anyway, Jaeha should be the only one who can handle Leonardo da Vinci's artifact that well.”

But the story was different if he was Yoo Jaeha's child. He should be able to use the artifact well because he carried on Jaeha’s talents.

Seol-A pushed her temples after hearing that.

"Do you think the future has changed?”
“Either that or he did make this mistake even in the past but the kid just never showed up in the past life. Damn it! It’s all slimes!”

Ju-Heon, who was playing a game on his phone, put his hand against his forehead. Ju-Heon sounded full of despair as he spent money to pull characters. This must be the risk from an artifact.

“Anyway, I'm the one who is most curious about the results.”

Ju-Heon started to frown as he stood there upset at the fact that he pulled 100 slimes.

“It’s disappointing if it was a test error, but I would say someone is interfering if it says they really are related.”
“Interfering?”
“Yes. Anyway, I prefer the artifact… No, that I get a new nephew.”

It was at that moment. Something burst through the ground and appeared in front of Ju-Heon.

Bang!

[#&$!]
The results are out! It’s out!

The rope had tunneled through the ground like a mole. It seemed to be able to dig like a worm after upgrading.

The rope poked its head out of the ground and continued to shout.

[#&$!]
They want you to hurry over! They want you to hurry over!

He didn't know what it was saying, but it didn’t matter.

‘It’s time.’


“The results are out!”

Everybody inside the office stood up. One of those people was the little kid who had instantly become Yoo Jaeha's son and Ju-Heon’s nephew.

“What are the results? It’s different right? They messed with the original, right?”
"Uhh, that!”

The researcher who was called over quickly pulled out a document. He was a researcher from Chairman Kwon’s lab.

There were no chances of Ju-Heon messing with the results to make it beneficial to him.

“So, the results…”

It was at that moment.

Bang!

Ju-Hon kicked the door open and entered.

“I heard the results were out. Did you call the reporters?”
“Damn it!”

The Monarch of Fraud gasped and hid behind the Monarch of Gossip as soon as he appeared. He was looking at Ju-Heon as if he was looking at a monster. Of course, Yoon Shi Woo and the TKBM employees were glaring at Ju-Heon.

“Where does that bastard think this is that he can just barge…!”

But Ju-Heon, who had walked into the room as if it was his own living room, asked the researcher the question.

"And the results?”

The anxious researcher peeked toward Chairman Kwon.

“No, that…”
“Enough, the results.”

Ju-Heon snatched the document away.

He immediately ripped the envelope open and pulled out the papers.

Yoon Shi Woo was shocked as he talked about how rude Ju-Heon was being, but it didn’t matter.

He was curious about the results as well.

“Enough, let’s see. Be ready to be embarrassed. We are going to reveal to the world that you tried to pull a major scam…”

It was at that moment.

“Son of a.”

Yoon Shi Woo's face turned pale after taking the document from Ju-Heon.

Yoo Jaeha and Louie, the main characters of this morning’s drama, rushed over after seeing Yoo Jaeha’s reaction.

“What is it? What do the results say?!”
“It’s not right? We're not related right? Right?”

But Yoon Shi Woo just mumbled without being able to close his mouth.

“M, match.”

Even Chairman Kwon was shocked this time. That wasn’t all. TKBM's employees, the reporters, and even Seol-A were all shocked.

A shocked Yoo Jaeha and Louie snatched the paper and confirmed it, but it still said that the two of them were father and son.

Maybe that was the reason. The Korean father and the French son both looked to be in despair.

“My goodness, we tested it properly this time…!”
“Get lost! No, I can't accept this! How can this crybaby bastard be my dad……!”

But at that moment…

“Aaaaaah!”

Louie Martin screamed as someone pulled his ear.

“What the hell!”

Ju-Heon was the one to pull Louie’s ear. Ju-Heon squinted while looking at Louie.

This situation was odd for Ju-Heon as well. It was because there was something that made absolutely no sense on the test.

[Genetic Match Rate: 99.9%]

This was impossible unless there was a clone.

‘Well, this part might just be an error in the test.’

Who cared if it was impossible? The important thing right now was that Yoo Jaeha was this bastard’s father. Regardless of the genetic match rate, it didn’t change their relationship.
Maybe that was the reason.

“Ahem, nephew. How dare you call your father a bastard. I guess I need to teach you to speak properly, little slave.”
"What the hell is a little slave……?!”

Ju-Heon pointed to the blankly staring Yoo Jaeha and continued to speak without any malice.

"What’s wrong? He’s my slave number 1. That means his son is Number 1 Junior. That’s why you are little slave.”

Ju-Heon's eyes flashed at that moment.

“You have no complaints, right?”

‘No… I have a lot of complaints.’

“Now then, repeat after me before you're interviewed. Father.”
“What?”
“Father!”

‘I'm going to go crazy.’
