The train Ju-Heon was on was cutting through the snowy field. It moved very gently, as if it was singing a lullaby.
Of course, the engine room was turning into a battlefield.
Hey! Go even faster! Step on it!
You petty idiot! Step on it! Step on it so that we can flip it over!
That’s right! Let’s kill all the humans! Let’s send them all to hell!
I told you no! I told you!
There were many artifacts, including the Gold axe Silver Axe, that were causing a ruckus. The rope was the only one that seemed to care about the safety of the passengers.
However, at that moment…
Damn it, hand it over!
The Gold Axe Silver axe managed to attack the rope. Then they grabbed onto the steering wheel with excitement.
Kyaa! Kyaa! We took it away! We took it away!
Okay little brother, push it! Go wild!
Maybe it didn’t know how to drive as the train wildly shook.
The passengers started to scream, while Ju-Heon, who was leisurely drinking whiskey and reading a newspaper, felt his body shake.
Yoo Jaeha, who had even sold his soul for his pay raise, started to get angry.
“What the hell is that rope doing?! How dare it drive like this when the Captain-nim is here! The Captain-nim is getting upset!”
‘Actually, I'm not.’
Ju-Heon, who had only spilled a little bit of whiskey, was looking toward the engine room in confusion.
The artifacts in the engine room that had caused the incident were shaking in fear.
Waaaah, it shook so wildly!
Mommy, I'm scared. I'm scared.
The angry rope started to chastise them.
Slap, slap, slap, slap!
That’s why I told you not to do it! I told you not to!
The rope slammed on the ground with its tail in anger. The rope’s aura that was usually suppressed was oddly chaotic.
It probably got angry thinking that they had harmed Ju-Heon.
The artifacts started to cry once more.
It’s getting angry at us, angry.
Mommy, you're reminding me of that Crow, don't do it! Don't do it!
Waaaaa, waaaaaaaaaah! And after a while…
[The rope has learned a new type of knot.]
[It’s battle ability is rising viciously.]
[The artifacts are in pain.]
[The artifacts have learned < How to grovel >.]
Ju-Heon tilted his head in confusion after seeing the messages popping up in front of him.
‘What the hell are those fools doing?’
But Ju-Heon just looked back at the tablet. There was an article that was more important than the artifacts.
[Chairman Kwon is still alive?]
[Chairman Kwon is finally found in the Valley of the Kings.]
[He was found by a private university's research team and not TKBM. TKBM is perplexed.]
Yoo Jaeha looked extremely nervous after reading that.
“Captain-nim, is this Okay? They're saying that the old bastard showed up!”
Ju-Heon started to laugh.
“It’s about time he was found. Actually, it is normal that he was found.”
He wanted to keep that bastard locked up underground for about 100 years, but there was a limit to an artifact. In that case, it was better to make Chairman Kwon appear at the right time.
This was that moment. Ju-Heon was the one who had originally hidden Chairman Kwon but also the one who had removed the thing hiding him now. Basically, he had used a camouflage artifact.
[World War II Soldiers’ camouflage cream (A-Grade:Treasure-Grade - Consumable Artifact)]
- Remaining Uses (54/99)
Ju-Heon had thoroughly rubbed that artifact around the coffin. That made the coffin naturally blend in with the surroundings, making it impossible to find with the naked eye.
‘It was originally a C-Grade artifact.’
But what had happened?
Something odd had happened because the exit for the tomb happened to be through a women’s changing room.
[The artifact has achieved its mission.]
[The artifact has received the title of < Fallen after encountering a new world >.]
[Its grade has risen to B-Grade (Rare).]
It was the upgrade that the rope had experienced. The soldier artifact seemed to have been quite stimulated by being in a women’s changing room.
Anyway, adding the authority of the artifact of Wrath on top of it… It became quite useful.
[The artifact’s abilities have temporarily risen.]
[It is able to temporarily rank-up one grade.]
‘It was able to add silencing to its basic stealth ability.’
There was still a time restriction.
Anyway, that was why he had used this timing to release the artifact.
“Chairman Kwon, I'm sure you feel like hell.’
But Yoo Jaeha still seemed to be worried as he was stomping his foot.
“Won't Chairman Kwon get retribution soon enough now that he is out?”
“He can't come out that easily.”
Ju-Heon then started to make a call.
“M, my goodness, how did the Chairman-nim end up like this?!”
In the research lab of a university… Chairman Kwon's family and Yang Chen were looking at the coffin in front of them with disbelief.
They then asked the University excavation team that had brought the coffin out.
“Is the Chairman-nim really inside there?”
“Yes sir, we used an x-ray that confirmed that there is a person around the Chairman-nim’s age inside the coffin………”
"We also heard him banging on the coffin and asking us to save him when we were inside the tomb. Other than Chairman Kwon who has disappeared…”
“Then why is it quiet right now?”
“I'm not sure. We heard him until just a moment ago… Did he maybe pass away in that short…….”
The eldest son quickly gave the order to rip the lid off the coffin. TKBM's remaining excavation team members all gathered around the coffin, but…
“It won’t open! Damn it!”
The golden coffin's lid did not even budge when they used artifacts or slammed into it.
‘Fuck, what do we do?’
But at that moment…
“Uh, uhh uhh? Hyung! You got a call! It’s from Seo Ju-Heon!”
"What did you say?!”
The eldest son quickly took the phone away after hearing the second son's comment.
[The coffin isn’t opening?]
It was an extremely annoying voice. The eldest son almost threw the phone in anger.
But he didn’t think Ju-Heon had just called to make fun of him.
"What do you want?”
[Do you want me to tell you how to open the coffin lid?]
The eldest son was shaken up, but he was cautious as the person he was talking to was Seo Ju-Heon. He knew that Ju-Heon must be scheming something as he would not do something like this out of the goodness of his heart.
Just as he had expected…
[I’ll teach you how to open it so tell Chairman Kwon the following. Tell him to give up the ownership rights to his possession-type artifacts.]
[I'm sure he’s not dead yet but he probably doesn’t even have the strength to shout anymore. So tell him to do it quickly. Then I’ll open it for you.]
Even though Ju-Heon managed to steal the possession-type artifacts from the safe, it was a headache because the ownership rights belonged to Chairman Kwon.
He could use strong Dominance to force the artifacts to become his, but there was a limit and it was annoying.
‘It’s also annoying to match the needs of the artifact as I did with the worm.’
[That’s why just tell him to give up the ownership rights while I'm being nice.]
Chairman Kwon's family couldn't help but be full of disbelief.
"Stop with the bullshit. Why would we rely on you of all people…!”
[Then just leave him be. At least you saved some money on a coffin. Bye then.]
“Hold on! Fine, we’ll do it!”
They cautiously approached the coffin and started to speak.
"Father, I don’t know if you can hear this or not… But Seo Ju-Heon said he would open the coffin if you gave up the ownership rights to your possession-type artifacts…’
At the same time… boom! The coffin shook vigorously.
They could feel Chairman Kwon's anger as he kicked the coffin.
He seemed to be able to still get angry even in his condition as long as Seo Ju-Heon was mentioned.
It was at that moment.
“……Fine. They’re all in my safe anyway.”
They heard a voice that was so angry that he might throw up. He must have thought that it would be okay to give up the ownership rights since they should all be inside his safe. He was thinking that Seo Ju-Heon wouldn’t have been able to take them away.
Maybe that was the reason.
[Okay. I just confirmed that he gave up the ownership rights to the artifacts. I'll open it now.]
The firmly stuck coffin lid slowly started to open!
The people there screamed after seeing the person imprisoned inside the coffin.
It really was Chairman Kwon. The person inside the coffin definitely was Chairman Kwon.
“………Seo Ju-Heon, that son… of a bitch.”
There were some mysterious smells coming out of the coffin, but Chairman Kwon looked……!
“M, my goodness. The Chairman-nim…!”
They saw a mummy. The completely skinny mummy had a glare on its face while releasing a venomous aura.
“Go and capture……capture Seo Ju-Heon right away!”
The extremely skinny mummy gave orders to its subordinates.
“Go capture him immediately! I'm going to kill him!”
The mummy stood up in anger.
“Kyaaaa! C, Chairman-nim!”
The secretaries became anxious and called the doctors they brought with them over.
However, Chairman Kwon pushed the doctors aside and continued to shout in an angry voice.
“My artifacts! My excavation team! My networks! All of those along with my capital makes it easy to take care of a bastard like him. Now!”
The three siblings all started to frown after hearing that. However, Chairman Kwon didn't seem to notice as he looked toward his children and continued to speak.
“Okay, hurry up and go bring my artifacts! And send the people out. My excavation teams……I've been saving them until today but I will send all of them out to fuck Seo Ju-Heon over…!”
However, nobody seemed to want to move to bring the artifacts and excavation teams to Chairman Kwon.
“What the hell? What is going on?! I told you go get them right now……!”
The secretary had an awkward expression while his children slowly prepared to run.
“Umm, Chairman-nim, t, that…… it’s nothing. You should first get some treatment at the hospital…”
But Chairman Kwon seemed to have realized something after seeing his children looking to run and started to frown.
“I’m guessing…… That my second son and youngest daughter did something stupid while I was gone. You two are worse than dogs.”
He wondered why his eldest son had an odd expression on his face as well, but he just brushed it aside.
“It’s fine so tell me what happened.”
The secretary and his children were anxious.
“I, it's nothing. Chairman-nim. It’s probably best that you go to the hospital……!”
The secretary debated for a bit before handing him a tablet.
“Hoo, there’s even an article? Let’s see what stupid shit you did this time…….”
Chairman Kwon's eyes opened wide after seeing the articles popping up.
[All of Chairman Kwon’s shares have been sold.]
[All of Chairman Kwon's artifacts have disappeared from his safe.]
[A multitude of letters of resignation from TKBM's excavation teams. There are less than 10 people left… “I don’t want to die from destitution.”]
[Numerous companies are cutting ties with TKBM.]
[There are no more investors.]
[They are facing numerous lawsuits in the hundreds of billions.]
[‘Murderer Corporation.’ People are boycotting TKBM.]
[Different countries have stopped importing TKBM products.]
[Will Seo Ju-Heon become the major shareholder for TKBM?]
It was normal for Chairman Kwon to faint.
“That old bastard probably fainted by now, right?”
Only faint? He probably can't wake up because of the shock for a while.
They chuckled and got off the train. The train had finally arrived at a village.
As people were getting off the train thanking Ju-Heon and saying that they won't forget about what he had done for them…
"But was there a need to open that coffin lid for that bastard? Captain-nim, you said the incantation to let him out, right?”
Yoo Jaeha was asking why Ju-Heon didn't let him rot forever in that coffin.
However, Ju-Heon sneered at him as he responded.
“I didn’t open it for him. Why would I open that?”
“The coffin that the bastard was in is a trap inside the tomb. It slowly loses power once it is out of the tomb.”
“T, that means…”
“It was about time for the trap to lose its strength. They were probably able to open it when I called. Basically, I didn’t open it for them; they just opened it while causing a ruckus.”
‘Wow! He shamelessly acted as if he had opened it for them.’
Ju-Heon called Seol-A over while Jaeha stood there in disbelief.
Seol-A seemed to be looking for something through the crowd of people getting off.
“Hey Seol-A. Who are you looking for?”
She looked around before quickly running over to Ju-Heon and starting to speak.
"Captain-nim, to be honest with you, I think I saw Chloe on the p………kyaaaaa!”
The rope attacked Seol-A as soon as it got off the train.
“Kyaaaa, w, what are you doing?!”
The rope went inside Seol-A's clothes before searching between her legs, her breasts, and all over her body. It then dragged something out from her chest area.
It was none other than Xu Fu's artifact, the worm.
The North Pole must have been too cold for the worm that it was relaxing with Seol-A's body heat.
Of course, this was shocking information for Seol-A.
“M, my goodness, why was that worm by my boobs?! I didn't even feel anything!”
Yoo Jaeha's jaws dropped with envy while Ju-Heon's eyes became as sharp as those of a wild beast.
The worm that had instantly been abducted by the rope felt as if it was going to die.
[Let go of me, you scoundrel! Let go! I was using a stealth artifact to enjoy paradise! It was extremely soft! I even thought about going farther down!]
But the rope that had rescued(?) Seol-A was extremely excited.
I gave you the full 100 million dollars! I gave it to you!
Give it to me! Give it to me! Give me the thing that will turn me human!
The worm that was in pain after being shaken by the rope took something out.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
