Chapter 196: I won’t give it to you (2)

Ju-Heon had taken out the Raven’s Tears that was familiar to his team members. Yoo Jaeha, Seol-A, and Julian's expressions all changed after looking at it.

‘He’s using that artifact.’

Yoo Jaeha looked as if he was looking at a game that only he had not played while Seol-A and Julian who both experienced it once already had different expressions.

Seol-A had been happy to remember memories of Ju-Heon, but it was the complete opposite for Julian.

‘Damn it, it might have been better to not remember this bastard.’

Then he might not be stuck in this position.

He looked as if he had stepped on some shit.

‘No, that’s fine, but…’

Julian looked around and started to frown.

‘Why the hell did he have to do it inside the women’s restroom?! It's so embarrassing!’

Even if they didn’t have time…

It was at that moment.


Chloe started her counterattack. Maybe she was planning on getting away from them using her artifacts.



Ju-Heon quickly used a different artifact.

[Perfume of Pleasure (B-Grade: Rare Grade - Consumable Artifact)]

It looked like an air freshener! However, Chloe lost strength in her body after taking a whiff of it.

‘! ! !’

[The target is experiencing pleasure that is making it impossible to maintain rationality.]
[An unbearably pleasurable sensation that is making it impossible for the target to maintain rationality is being felt.]
[The target is temporarily giving into the pleasure.]
[The target is temporarily finding it annoying to think.]
[The target’s Dominance is temporarily weakening.]
[The target’s focus is temporarily falling.]
[The target’s possession-type artifacts are also losing their rationalities from experiencing the same pleasure.]
[The artifacts connected to their master are losing their rationalities.]

The effects were amazing.

Even her artifacts were impacted by Ju-Heon and unable to focus.

As a result, Chloe and her artifacts all fell to the ground.



Of course, Julian gasped after seeing what was going on.

‘What is that bastard using right now?! !’

He always knew what Ju-Heon was using because he had Zhuge Kongming's artifact.

“Hey, why are you using that vulgar artifact that could cause human rights issues……?!”
“What’s wrong? I can use it on you too if you’re jealous. This is for both men and women.”
“Damn it, that’s not the problem…….!”
“My goodness, my Vice-Captain is such a loud bastard. Shut up and focus on your job.”

Ju-Heon looked annoyed as he walked toward Chloe.

Chloe, who was drunk with pleasure, tried to run away with an anxious expression on her face.

She didn’t know what he was planning on doing, but there was no way that a bastard who would do such a thing inside a restroom would do something normal!



Seol-A was holding onto her from behind like a Koala and covering her mouth, so she could not do anything.

Chloe tried to get Seol-A off of her, but Seol-A did not let go.


‘I'm going to report these bastards.’

However, Ju-Heon didn't care and activated an artifact.


[The Raven’s Tears has activated.]

A bright light flashed through the restroom.

Chloe saw it at that moment. People and memories she had not known until now as well as the weird memories she had recently seen as nightmares.

‘Say hello. She's a new team member.’

‘Hello, my name is Chloe.’

‘Wow, she’s a beauty! That’s too bad. She’s also a member of TKBM's trash team like us.’

‘Jaeha……. watch your mouth.’

‘Why? What? Did I say something wrong? Fuck, we’re the poor department that can't see the light no matter how well we do. All of our accomplishments are stolen as well. Isn’t that right, Dan? Who cares if our Captain bastard is talented, everything good gets taken away from him.’

Faces she had never seen before… Other memories that showed up one after another.

‘Wow, shit, I heard Seo Ju-Heon’s team did something big again.’

‘Those bastards really are the thorns in our eyes. Why are those undisciplined idiots so strong?’

‘They have the Chairman-nim’s favor. Those bastards make us look bad. We’re the Elite team!’

‘Hey hey, who cares if they are strong and have the best accomplishments. They’ll never make it to any official positions in the company.’

‘Should we quietly get rid of them? The entire team?’

The faces of the people plotting against them…

And the final tomb they went into…

She remembered how the TKBM teams that were supposed to come reinforce them never showed up.

Chloe's eyes opened wide as those memories and sensations became engraved into her brain.

And the moment the Ju-Heon in his late thirties of her memories overlapped with his current appearance…


Ju-Heon started to smile.

But something unexpected happened at that moment.

[The target has been affected by the Supreme Leader artifact's powers.]
[The target has been affected by a memory modification artifact.]


Chloe seemed to be in pain as she looked toward Ju-Heon.

[The powers of the Spider and Raven, two strong artifacts, are clashing.]

Chloe, who seemed to be in a lot of pain, screamed and tried to choke Ju-Heon.

[Get your revenge.]
[Get your revenge.]

Ju-Heon started to frown as he quickly started to act.


He immediately hit Chloe in the back of her neck and made her faint.

He had moved at lightning speed.

She probably didn't even feel any pain.

However, the rest of the team members seemed shocked at his actions.

"C, Captain-nim?!”
“Something happened, didn’t it?”

Julian and Seol-A looked quite anxious. It was because the reaction was different than what had happened with them.

But Ju-Heon who realized something grabbed Chloe and took out an escape-type artifact.

“Change of plans.”
“Excuse me?!”


They soon appeared in the airport’s lounge. Thankfully, there were no people around.

The team members urgently started to shout at that moment.

"Weren’t you going to have Chloe get her memories back before sending her to Chairman Kwon?”
“That’s right. Chloe would be able to make Chairman Kwon's illness even worse!”

That was right. Ju-Heon was planning on snatching Chloe in the middle and starting his next plan.
This was Operation make Chairman Kwon eat shit. Basically, he would make Chloe remember the past before sending her to Chairman Kwon. She would pretend to heal him while actually using a curse-type artifact to make his illness even worse.

But now that he had made her faint…

“It looks like there was some kind of accident.”

Ju-Heon looked toward the unconscious Chloe.

[The target has been affected by the Supreme Leader artifact's powers.]

That was what the message had said.

‘It looks like she met with Zhen Cai Yuan.’

He would ask Chloe about the details once she woke up.

But before that…

Ju-Heon quickly looked at his watch.

‘Chloe's plane is set to leave at 10:10.’

There was approximately 10 minutes before boarding closed.

Ju-Heon urgently looked toward Julian.

“Look for the TKBM employee who was supposed to get on the plane with Chloe. He should be around here somewhere.”

Julian quickly looked toward the people boarding.

There were a lot of people. But the people looked different once he activated Zhuge Kongming's artifact. There were different colored auras coming up from people's bodies or no reactions at all.

Julian was able to almost immediately locate TKBM's employee.

It was because there was an artifact that all TKBM employees would have on them.

“I found him. He seems to be looking for Chloe. I'm sure he’ll get suspicious if Chloe goes missing like this.”
“Then shall we take Chloe and run for now?”

Julian shook his head at Yoo Jaeha’s question.

“No, we won’t get a good opportunity like this again. I don't want to make them wary of us for no reason.”
“Then how……”

Julian quickly looked toward Yoo Jaeha.

“Yoo Jaeha, make a copy of Chloe.”
“H, huh?! But she’s unconscious. There are portrait rights and such, you want me to do it without permission?”
“Just do it quickly.”
H, hey……!”

‘Why is he becoming more like the Captain when he claims they’re not alike at all?!’

"Anyway, this is a rare opportunity for us. We will make a copy and send that to Chairman Kwon instead.”
“Damn it, is that okay? I'll need more than 10 minutes unless I'm creating corpses.”

Julian put his hand on his forehead while Ju-Heon started to laugh.

“It’s fine, you don't need to make a human copy.”

Ju-Heon pointed to the Doppelganger artifact in Yoo Jaeha's hand.

“Instead of making a copy, use that to transform into Chloe and go meet Chairman Kwon.”

Yoo Jaeha immediately looked toward Seol-A.

"Then Seol-A can do it!”

Ju-Heon clicked his tongue as Yoo Jaeha tried to hand the Doppelganger artifact to Seol-A.

“Why would Seol-A do that?”
“E…… excuse me?”
“Seol-A can’t turn into a perfect Chloe even if she uses the Doppelganger artifact since she’s lacking Fit. Chairman Kwon will find out.”

The muscles in Yoo Jaeha's face started to twitch as he had an ominous feeling.

“……T, then……C, Captain-nim or Julian…….”

Ju-Heon smiled brightly at that moment.

"What bullshit are you talking about? It’s obvious that you, the copy genius, need to do it. Isn't your Fit with the Doppelganger artifact at max because of your sharp eyes?”
“E, excuse me?”
"That’s not the only thing. Jaeha, I've never seen a more talented scammer than you in my whole life. I'm sure that you’ll be able to trick Chairman Kwon.”

Yoo Jaeha plopped down on the ground once even Seol-A put her hand on his shoulder.

‘Fuck, no wonder things have been going so well since this morning! No wonder he was praising me so much lately! Fuck, I knew it would be like this!’

Ju-Heon didn’t care about Jaeha's feelings as he continued to speak.

“There’s no time. I'll give you one minute.”
“Wahhh! You’re telling me to act as a woman?! It’s obvious that Seol-A would be more natural at it! Why me?!”
“Get lost. Why would I put Seol-A in danger and send her off to the center of the enemy base?”
“Hey! Then what about me?! I'm in the most danger if you consider our fighting capabilities!”
“Who cares, I don’t care what happens to you.”
“Speak human words, human words.”

Yoo Jaeha continued to argue that he could not pretend to be a woman.

“No, why don't we just miss the plane? We can send Chloe once she wakes up. Hey hey, Julian, you agree with me, don't you? Huh? Anyway, I won’t… No, I can't do it!”

At that moment, Set of the sand and Indra of the thunder… Ju-Heon and Julian’s eyes flashed as they activated two vicious Divine-Grade artifacts.

“Shut up and do it.”
“Good luck.”

Yoo Jaeha held back his tears after seeing these chaotic auras that looked ready to eat him up.

‘Aigoo, I'm really going to go crazy.’

At that moment…

“Ha……this is crazy. Will I really be able to use this artifact on that Chairman Kwon bastard?”

Inside the plane. Yoo Jaeha, who truly deserved the title of being the Monarch of Fraud in the past, had used the Doppelganger artifact to turn into a perfect copy of Chloe as he was deep in thought.

‘I just need to not make any mistakes as the Captain-nim mentioned. Chairman Kwon will totally find out if I just use the curse-type artifact. That's why I need to use my abilities to camouflage the curse-type artifact. Ah, whatever. I'm sure it’ll be fine.’

Yoo Jaeha had those thoughts on his mind as he looked around.

There was someone or something that Ju-Heon had sent with him as his bodyguard.

‘Where the hell did the rope go?’

It was fine that they were going through with the plan, but the bastard who was to be his bodyguard had disappeared.

That was why he was chasing after the auras of artifacts to find it. Yoo Jaeha was shocked.

“Hey, hey you bastard!”

The rope was located in the area where they made the in-flight food. Thankfully, the flight attendants weren’t there, but…

“Hey! What are you doing?! What is all this?!”

The rope’s eyes were sparkling after hearing Yoo Jaeha's shout.

I'm going to use this! I'm going to use it!

The rope was grinding something on a steel sheet. It was also putting something in a mortar and grinding it!

They were the garlic and Korean wormwood artifacts!

The rope that had been searching to see if there were any dangerous items aboard the plane when it found something good.

Let’s grind it! Grind it!

The rope must have seen something on the plane’s TVs as it was extremely excited.

The garlic and Korean wormwood artifact that had its body being ground up was crying.

Aigoo, you bastard, my head, my head!

Here comes hair loss!

Stop, stoooooooooooooop! My booooody!

The rope continued to grind and touch the Korean wormwood and garlic artifact.

The rope’s eyes then flashed before it started to rub the ground up artifact on its body.

Yoo Jaeha was shocked as he watched.

‘T, this bastard.’

Was it planning on rubbing it on its body since it didn't have a mouth?!

Yoo Jaeha grabbed the back of his neck in shock.

“Aigoo, will it be able to successfully complete its mission?”

“Mr. Ju-Heon. Will it really be okay? Is it okay to send Mr. Jaeha on his own?”

Ju-Heon camly took a sip of coffee as he smiled to answer Irene's question.

“That’s just his luck if he dies.”

He then waved toward the plane that was flying up into the sky.

Yoo Jaeha the fake Chloe should be on that plane, but who cared?

‘I just need him to pretend he’s healing Chairman Kwon before using a curse-type artifact.’

It might sound stupid, but Jaeha was the most talented when it comes to backup.

‘He should be fine since I even sent the rope with him.’

They were planning on chasing after Yoo Jaeha and heading to TKBM as well.

‘TKBM will go to clear the Tomb of Pride.’

But that tomb was currently being thoroughly guarded by the UN, EU, and Pandora. They would not let him, who had a reputation as the Monarch of Plunder and a Tomb Raider, go into the tomb.

Of course, there was still a way.

[TKBM excavation team recruitment announcement]

TKBM's excavation team had urgently put out a recruitment announcement after they lost so many people because of this past situation.
Irene asked with concern at that moment.

"Are you really planning on responding to that recruitment?”
“Only if Jaeha does his job properly.”

It was at that moment.


Chloe opened her eyes.
