Chapter 177: Seo Ju-Heon’s Curse (3)

Is there really an artifact that can turn me human?

The rope did not have eyes but its eyes were sparkling. It had heard something similar in the past.

It was probably inside Salieri's tomb.

Yoo Jaeha had said, ‘there is an artifact that can turn you human.’

He had teased the rope with that information.

After that, the rope had written on a piece of paper to argue with Yoo Jaeha.

[I thought you said there was an artifact to turn me human!]

It had even learned Korean to write that since Yoo Jaeha could not read Toombglyph.

But this was how Yoo Jaeha had responded.

“You idiot, did you really believe that? I would have already used it if there was such an artifact!”

[! ! !]

Was he saying that he was not human right now…?!

The shocked rope had thought that there were no such artifacts after that moment.
But it actually exists?

Tell me! Tell me!

The rope instantly ran toward Thoth.

It allowed Anubis to stop being choked by the rope as well.

It was great that he was released, but the artifact Thoth was talking about…

[You're not planning on telling it about those artifacts, are you?]
[Why? Can't I do that?]

Anubis was shocked at Thoth's nonchalant demeanor.

[Are you crazy? Do you want the Supreme Leader-nim to kill you?!]
[Why would I die?]
[Are you an idiot?! Those artifacts are things that cannot be traded even between artifacts! Did you already forget what happened in the past?!]

Thoth started to chuckle.

[That thing can't become human even if I tell it about those artifacts. Numerous artifacts have failed.]
[And if it succeeds? We would be doing something beneficial for Seo Ju-Heon! It would put us in even more of a difficult situation!]
[Don’t worry. It won’t happen. I'll stab my own damn hand if a simple rope could do it.]

Anubis started to laugh while looking at the rope. He understood the meaning behind Thoth's words.

‘Thoth, you cunning bastard.’

The rope's eyes were still sparkling as it looked toward Thoth.

Where can I Get it? Where?

[I can tell you about it. But I won’t do it for free.]

What do you need me to do?

Thoth triumphantly pointed to the chains around its legs.

[Rope, get rid of these things. In exchange, I will tell you about them.]

The rope instantly started to viciously glare.

I can't do that! No! You’re going to run away!

How dare it ask the rope to undo something Ju-Heon had done.

[It's fine, I just won’t tell you.]

Thoth started to smile wickedly.

The chains on its legs were artifacts full of Dominance.

‘Seo Ju-Heon, how dare you place such things on me.’

It would normally have been able to break it with its own strength, but it had already been destroyed by Ju-Heon and only restored to barely be alive. There was no way it could destroy the chains and escape.

It had pecked and harassed Yoo Jaeha in anger to fully restore it, but well…

‘Aaah! Blackie attacked me in my sleep last time but now it's a damn bird?! Do I look like such a pushover?! Huh, do I look like a pushover?! Why do they all have to be males?! I'm going to castrate you guys before I kill you!’

An angry Yoo Jaeha had taken out a flamethrower artifact.

Thoth was currently being calm as it was worried that its whole head would burn if it continued to peck Jaeha.

‘Seo Ju-Heon's subordinates also have the same shitty personalities as him.’

Anyway, that was why Thoth was trying to make a deal with the rope.

‘Release the chains.’

The rope debated for a moment before disappearing. Thoth was starting to get excited.

[Ohhhh! Did you go to get the keys?! Yes, hurry…!]

The rope actually returned with a box of chicken.

How about for this? No?


‘Like hell that would work!’

[Do you think I am like those dogs?!]

The shocked rope seemed to have realized something after seeing Thoth throw a tantrum and quickly disappeared.

The rope then returned with a bag of grains such as rice and millets.

Sorry, this is more to your liking right? Right?

It seemed to have made its way into Yoo Jaeha's dinner and stolen some things.

Thoth shouted in anger.

[Do you think I am a damn chicken?! You damn bastard!]

The rope really didn't know what to do after seeing Thoth being angry.

It thought that the doggies like chicken because they were carnivores.

Similarly, it thought Thoth would like these things because it was a bird.

The rope hesitated before taking out a picture as if it had no choice.
It was the picture of Ju-Heon that he had ordered to be destroyed. It must have swiped one without anybody knowing about it.

I don't want to give this to you because I cherish it very much, but I guess I have no choice. I’ll give it to you.

Thoth looked ready to start shooting fire out of its mouth.

[Enough, just undo the chains, the chains!]

The rope started to whimper.

Even if it wanted to be human, it could not undo these chains that Ju-Heon had placed.
The rope sniffled some more before turning around in resignation.

It’s fine! I'll just find a different method. I'll find it.

[Whatever! Search for it all you want! A stupid idiot like you won't ever find out without a god of wisdom like me helping you!]

However, at that moment…

[Go ask the worm. It’ll probably get it for you if you ask.]

Set was the one who said that. Thoth was angry at Set helping the rope.

[Hey! Are you crazy? Why are you telling it to this rope?!]
[Shut up, I don’t like you. You’re always up to no good.]

Set seemed to like the rope. It wasn't plotting things all the time like other artifacts and it was cute how loyal it was.

[Oh right, hey rope. I collected 20 coupons. This means I get a chicken for free, right?]

Maybe it just liked the rope because it helped it order coupon chicken without Ju-Heon knowing about it.

On the way to meet with the US president… Yoo Jaeha and Ju-Heon were looking at an odd situation.

"What is it doing?”
“I, I'm not sure.”

The rope was cleaning Yoo Jaeha's room. Well, it was actually a temporary room in a hotel because Ju-Heon's villa had burnt to the ground because of the Supreme Leader.

The rope which had cleaned the walls, windows, and everything a hotel employee should have done, now started to clean Yoo Jaeha's art tools and artifacts.
It even cleaned his shoes and laundry.

“Why is it cleaning your room and doing your laundry?”

Ju-Heon glared at his subordinate as if he was not happy with this. Yoo Jaeha triumphantly responded.

"Wow, it finally seems to have recognized its other owner.”
“Captain-nim, you’re already receiving a lot of help from the rope! Don’t you think it is finally feeling thankful to me and giving me the same service?”

Ju-Heon started to frown as if he had a problem with this.

The rope servicing someone other than himself? And of all people, it had to be Yoo Jaeha?

Yoo Jaeha started to chuckle after seeing Ju-Heon being full of complaints.

“Wow, why don’t we just share such good service? It’s being a good rope. It is probably showing me gratitude for restoring it……what the hell is this?”

Yoo Jaeha almost fainted after looking at the paper that the rope handed him.

[Room cleaning 100,000,000]
[Bed organization 10,000,000]
[Shoe cleaning 50,000,000]
[Laundry 200,000,000]
[Bathing the restoration artifact 70,000,000]

[Service charge 600,000,000]
[Total requested: 1,030,000,000 won.]

Yoo Jaeha almost fainted after reading the receipt the rope handed him.

"What the hell is this?!”

What else would it be? It was an invoice.
The rope, that had no idea about the value of money, was innocently bobbing up and down.

Yoo Jaeha's hands were shaking.

“What kind of invoice is this?! You did all of that on your own accord and you want me to pay you?!”

Pay me if you understand! Pay me!

“Damn it, this is theft!”

It’s not theft! It's a part-time job! It's a part-time job!

Ju-Heon started to laugh.
He was wondering why the rope was doing things for Yoo Jaeha, but it was for this.

The rope probably didn't know anything about human money.

‘I don’t know why it is suddenly doing this.’

Why was it doing this? Ju-Heon didn't know the reason, but the rope had gone to see the worm as Set had advised.

[What did you say? You want to become human?]

The worm sounded shocked as it looked toward the rope.

Set told me that you would know about it!

The worm almost fainted after hearing what the rope said.

‘Aigoo, asking for something that even a Commander of the Corps would find difficult to do…’

There really was such a thing. There were artifacts that could turn them human. There were many stories about animals or other non-human things trying to become human.

Animals and artifacts could become human if it used those artifacts.

‘They should have all been slaughtered in the past.’

The rope just continued to ask.

You can't get it? You can't get it?

The worm peeked toward the rope.

Well, he could easily get it, but……

[Do you have any money?]

The rope gasped and asked in a serious tone.

H, how much do you need?

[Mm, approximately $100,000,000?]

That was about 110 billion won.

The rope didn't know how much money that was, but there was no way it had that much money.

Maybe that was the reason. That was when the rope's part-time job had started!

The rope's eyes flashed as it continued to chase after Yoo Jaeha.

I worked for you! I worked! Pay me! Pay me!

The rope continued to hound Yoo Jaeha. It looked like a loan shark chasing after someone who owed them money.

“Damn it, you thieving bastard! How can you ask for 1 billion won after doing these things?! This is void, void!”

The rope didn't care as it went into Yoo Jaeha’s bank account and started to take all of his money. It was easy to take money as long as you had a cellphone in this world.

Yoo Jaeha gasped after seeing what was going on.

“Hey, what the hell are you doing?! Hey! Hey! How the hell do you know my password?!”

He received a message on his phone.

[42,467,839 won has been withdrawn.]
[It was deposited to the Worm Company.]

Yoo Jaeha foamed at the mouth after receiving text message after text message.

“Aaah! Is the bank crazy?! Did they really send all that money?!”

Ju-Heon, who had been sneering at Jaeha, started to shout.

"Whatever, let’s go. Go call Seol-A.”
“Ah, damn it, okay. Ah, wait! Where’s my laptop? My backpack……”

The rope handed him his backpack at that moment.

Are you looking for this? Are you looking for this?

“Ah, thank you……ugh!”

[50 million won requested as reward.]

Yoo Jaeha started to cry after seeing the invoice the rope was slyly handing him.

At the same time, Julian was frowning while looking at his watch.

He was currently at the White House to join Ju-Heon in his meeting with the US president.

He had come after being invited by the president, but……

‘I told him we need to avoid the US president, so Seo Ju-Heon, what the hell is he thinking?’

Ju-Heon was probably not coming here with good intentions.

Julian was being stared at by the people inside the White House as he was debating what to do.

It happened at that moment.

“Is the gourd-shaped bottle still not here?”

‘He’s here.’

The US president was here.

Julian started to shake.

He heard Ju-Heon's voice at that moment.
