“Are you crazy?! Do you know who that is?!”
They were grinding their teeth at the fact that the situation had flipped in an instant while Yoo Jaeha was clicking his tongue from the back.
"Who told you to take a hostage first?”
“Our Captain-nim is a terrible person so he will happily copy what you're doing.”
Yoo Jaeha nonchalantly talked shit about his captain. Of course, he quickly whimpered after seeing Seol-A glaring at him as if she was a maiden ghost.
They started to grind their teeth.
“Listen carefully. Do you think this kid and that person are the same?”
“That person is the Chairman-nim’s son!”
Ju-Heon sneered at them.
"So what? Does the Chairman-nim’s son shit gold or something?”
The dagger touched Kwon Seung Jae's neck as he laughed. That made multiple people freak out.
Kwon Seung Jae, who had simply returned from using the restroom, was the most shocked.
“U, umm, hyung-nim? Please wait a moment. Could you please explain to me what is going…ahh!”
He could not continue to speak. It was because Ju-Heon's blade started to push into his neck.
“Ah, I don’t know, it's too annoying to explain.”
The completely pale Kwon Seung Jae started to shout as if he figured out the situation.
“Ack! I got it, Section chief Shin Woo Hyuk, I think there is a misunderstanding. This person is not the enemy. I don’t know how the misunderstanding happened, but this person is just someone who is working with…”
The blade dug deeper once he said that.
He then heard Ju-Heon’s voice behind him.
“Wrong. That’s not it.”
‘Then what is it?!’
“Tell them to hand over all of Chairman Kwon's wealth in return for your life. The shares they own of the company is fine too.”
"What did you say?!”
Kwon Seung Jae screamed that he didn’t hear what Ju-Heon said while the TKBM employees were still grinding their teeth.
He was certain. The way Ju-Heon was laughing meant that he was pretending to joke while enjoying all of this.
That was why they were extremely frustrated.
“Seung Jae, why are you here instead of being at the club?!”
“Why did you do something you normally don't do and end up getting captured like this?!”
They protested but Kwon Seung Jae seemed upset as well.
“Why else?! I made a deal with this guy to clear one of the 7 Great Tombs without you guys knowing! This guy is the final boss when it comes to Tomb Excavation!”
“What did you say?!”
‘You had nobody else to make a deal with so you made a deal with this bastard?!’
“Either way, Mr. Seung Jae, you made a deal with a terrorist who hijacked a plane!”
Ju-Heon started to frown.
‘Terrorist my ass. Who the hell is the terrorist who hijacked a plane?’
Ju-Heon snorted as he responded.
“Whatever. All of you put your artifacts down on the ground. Fix the plane back up as well.”
Ju-Heon’s eyes flashed like a goblin's eyes after seeing them hesitate.
“Hurry up and drop them!”
They quickly started to move.
They were shaking after seeing a scary looking bastard glaring at them like this.
Ju-Heon's eyes flashed once they put their artifacts down and the floor that was about to be destroyed was fixed up.
“Listen carefully. You guys will now get rid of the zombie weapons guarding Chairman Kwon’s artifact warehouse.”
“You will then hand over a map marked with the location of the artifact warehouse.”
“What is this bastard…!”
“That’s not all!”
“Finally, hand over TKBM's shares that Chairman Kwon owns. Those should have moved over to the eldest son by now.”
They became flustered.
“Hey, do you think that is reasonabl…!”
“If not, then this guy is out.”
Kwon Seung Jae became desperate after seeing the blade push in some more.
“Aaah! Section chief-nim, at least hand him over my shares! I'm really going to die like this!”
A desperate Section chief Shin Woo Hyuk quickly shouted back.
“Fine. We will discuss these things with the Vice Captain-nim and our Director once we get off the plane. So!”
These bastards were done for once they got off the plane anyway.
They just needed to get past the current situation. They would receive the help of the French police to take care of the rest.
As they were laughing internally…
“Once we get off the plane? What kind of bullshit is that? Do it right now.”
“What? Hey! We’re on a plane right now. How can we do anything when we can't even make a call…!”
“Just drag them over here.”
Ju-Heon started to smile.
“Both the eldest son and Yang Chen are on this plane right now. You've already informed them about the situation.”
They were shocked.
"W, what the hell are you talking about?”
They were feigning ignorance, but the atmosphere had completely changed.
But Ju-Heon approached Section chief Shin Woo Hyuk as if to tell him not to lie.
“You should have thought about who you were trying to trick.”
Ju-Heon then pulled something out of Section chief Shin Woo Hyuk's ear. They were all shocked to see something that looked like a hearing aid.
Ju-Heon talked into the hearing aid.
“Can you hear me? I know you guys are back there in the economy section.”
He couldn't hear them as this was an artifact for eavesdropping, but Ju-Heon continued to speak.
“I made myself clear. I said this guy was dead if you hide even one artifact.”
The employees started to get restless.
“If you got that, release the rope that you guys have captured. Then, properly sign the contract the rope is holding. He’s dead if you guys bother my artifact any more than you already have.”
The employees’ eyes opened wide after hearing that.
‘What? What does he mean by rope?’
But Ju-Heon just ruthlessly destroyed the eavesdropping artifact.
Kwon Seung Woo, Chairman Kwon’s eldest son, pushed on his ringing ear with a look of disbelief.
They were here as Ju-Heon had said.
Economy class. Chairman Kwon's eldest son and TKBM’s Vice Captain, Yang Chen, were sitting there. They were watching the situation from far away as Director Kwon Seung Woo had stated that he wanted to see what happened with his own eyes.
But then a mysterious rope had suddenly appeared.
Let me out! Let me out!
Yang Chen frowned and looked inside the flailing bag. Yang Chen had captured the rope into this bag artifact as if it was a snake.
Their reactions were understandable. How could they not capture it when it suddenly appeared and told them to sign a weird contract?
He had thought about making a rope stew later but well…
“Yang Chen. First, let it go as Seo Ju-Heon said to do.”
Yang Chen clicked his tongue and released the bag. The rope burst out immediately and pushed the contract toward him while grumbling.
Sign it! Sign it!
There must have been some ferocious bugs inside the bag as the rope's body was full of injuries.
Ju-Heon had actually searched the entire plane with his Spy skill. He had sent the rope after recognizing the aura of Yang Chen’s artifact.
That had led to this situation.
The eldest son had no choice but to accept the contract from the rope.
"Director-nim. Are you really planning on signing that contract?”
The eldest son started to sneer.
“It’s fine to sign it because it is a contract like this.”
There were some unbelievable conditions on the contract.
Here was the simplified version of the contents.
Sell off Chairman Kwon Tae Joon's TKBM shares to the promisee.
Sell off 2% of all TKBM affiliates to the promisee.
Sell off Chairman Kwon and TKBM's properties to the promisee.
Hand over Chairman Kwon Tae Joon's excavation rights.
Get rid of the soldiers guarding Chairman Kwon Tae Joon's artifact warehouse.
Should you have no plans to complete the requirements of this contract or try to get out of it, they will be forcibly enforced and there will be retribution.
[Addendum. Agree to the rope's requests. That will be the ransom.]
Although it said to sell off, it was pretty much telling them to give it to him for pennies on the dollar.
“It’s obvious he wants to get his hands on some of TKBM's shares.”
He started to scoff. Of course, his father’s wealth had come over to him after his father went missing, but…
“Do you really think a contract like this will be enforceable?”
“I suppose even the lawyers would laugh at it and say that a dog is barking.”
"Anyway, Seo Ju-Heon, that man… He's terrible at drafting a contract. I don’t know if he doesn't know how the world works or if he's an idiot who only knows how to dig through tombs.”
He didn’t feel any aura of an artifact on the contract either.
And most importantly…
‘Does he really think he can get out of this plane so easily?’
Maybe that was the reason.
“Hand this over to him.”
“You signed it?”
“It doesn’t matter. I just need to play along for now. We must first save my younger brother. He is my brother after all.”
“Ho, are you sure it is not because you don’t want to be known as the older brother who let his younger brother be killed?”
The eldest son laughed and handed the signed document over to the rope. He then took some money out of his wallet and handed it to the rope.
It was because the rope had requested some money as < delivery fee >.
The eldest son handed it about 2 million won.
“Sorry but this is all I have on me right now.”
They snickered internally.
‘I should have satisfied all of the contract requirements now.’
If he could save his brother for 2 million won, that was like doing it for the price of gum.
"Sorry I can only give you 2 million won.”
The rope just nodded its head.
That’s okay! That’s okay!
Tada, the rope proudly took out a card payment machine.
I accept credit cards!
Kwon Seung Woo and Yang Chen started to frown.
Would you like a one-time payment? Or maybe you would like to pay in installments?
The eldest son's face was twitching after reading what the rope wrote down.
The rope happily swiped the black card he handed over.
The total written on the receipt…
[Installment request declined]
[30 billion won has been approved for a one time payment.]
The eldest son dropped his jaw at the amount that didn't seem to care about his credit limit.
Furthermore, he had told it to do an installment plan!
But the rope didn’t care and just happily ran toward its master.
I only have 10 million won left now! That’s all that’s left!
It must have worked hard on its part-time jobs until now. Money was one thing but it seemed to be very happy at the fact that it was able to successfully complete Ju-Heon's order.
I brought it! I brought it!
Ju-Heon smiled after taking the contract that the rope brought over in a case.
It was definitely the eldest son's signature. Those bastards probably had no idea. They didn't know how this contract worked.
“Anyway, good, you did well.”
The rope was jumping up and down in joy after being praised by Ju-Heon for the first time in a long while.
One of the employees whispered to Section chief Shin Woo Hyuk after seeing Ju-Heon grab the contract.
"Will that be okay?”
“It’s fine. It should be a useless contract. What is he planning on doing with such a terrible contract…”
“I guess so. That is true. And…”
They quickly shut up in fear that Ju-Heon might hear.
Ju-Heon was deep in his thoughts at that moment.
‘Escaping is really the problem.’
He had caused quite the ruckus here. It was obvious that the cops would drag him away the moment he arrived in France.
That was what the TKBM excavation team members were waiting for as they snickered.
They were planning on calling the Immigration Office as soon as they landed to call the cops over.
‘Tsk, what would be the cleanest way to escape from here?’
He couldn't really hijack the plane.
‘The only escape-type artifact I have is only usable on land…’
But at that moment…
There was a sudden unexpected situation.
The plane suddenly started to shake.
“Fuck! What is going on?!”
Even the TKBM employees seemed shocked at this.
Ju-Heon urgently called Seol-A over.
“Go figure out what is going on. There might be something we could use.”
Seol-A nodded her head and quickly headed toward the economy class area.
And what she saw from the end of the corridor was………!
It was one of the remaining members of the TKBM Hunters they had taken down.
He looked Arabic. There seemed to have been some of them waiting in economy class in addition to the ones who had shown up to first class.
The problem was what they were trying to do.
Seol-A started to frown.
‘Stupid idiots. I had a feeling they hired a Middle Eastern terrorist organization.’
She didn’t know whether they were the Monarch of Evangelism's personal subordinates or they were part of the guerrilla organizations, but as for the gun they were holding…
‘It’s a virus-type artifact.’
Of course, their unexpected action made the TKBM people who had hired them look shocked as well.
"W, what are they doing?”
“I'm not sure! Maybe this was their goal from the beginning when they agreed to participate in this mission……!”
“Fuck, the Director-nim is on this plane as well. What are you going to do if things go wrong?!”
As Seol-A turned around to inform Ju-Heon about this…
Seol-A was shocked. She thought that she saw a familiar face among the passengers. It was someone who should not be here.
It was a beautiful woman with dark black hair. One of their former Tomb raiding team members was here.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
