Chapter 241: To return his memories or not? (2)


“Good job! Ilya, you tamed Seo Ju-Heo…… huh?”

But something was weird.

“Ilya?”

Ilya clenched his eyes shut and Ju-Heon started to smile after hearing Kwon Hyuk Soo calling out to Ilya.

“What the……”

It was extremely weird.
They were currently standing on the first floor of the construction site. Ju-Heon and Ilya were on the seventh floor, the roof.

They were close enough to hear each other and they seemed to be the right people.

Ju-Heon was wearing a black rider jacket and a cap while the blonde Ilya was wearing a blue jacket with a hood.

Ilya was taller but both of them were tall and physically fit.

They were not the type to get beaten up no matter where they went.
Anyway, it was fine that Ilya was with Ju-Heon, however………

“Mr. Ilya, what happened?!”

The guards who came with Kwon Hyuk Soo seemed anxious as well.

The reason was obvious.

“Didn’t you turn Seo Ju-Heon into your subordinate?!”
“Why are you captured?!”

Like hell Ilya turned Ju-Heon into his subordinate…

“Do you want to die? Who the hell is whose subordinate? Right?”

Ju-Heon pushed down firmly on Ilya’s head and Ilya started to frown.

‘This damn bastard.’

Kwon Hyuk Soo and the guards dropped their jaws in shock as they watched.

Ilya was no longer in cement but he looked like quite the spectacle standing there tied up by the rope.

He was also by the ledge and looked as if he could fall at any moment!

Of course, the rest of the team members who were hiding as they watched clicked their tongues.

‘He’s basically Captain Hook.’

He truly seemed like Hook.
Why?

[Maaaaaaaaster! My jaws about to go out!]
[How long do we need to do this for?!]
[Hurry up and drop him!]

The Egyptian doggies were at the bottom with their jaws open instead of a crocodile.

Their vicious teeth were quite sharp.

That wasn't all.

[I'm going to rip that human to shreds!]
[No! He’s mine! Mine!]
[Hurry up and drop him!]

The animals that Anubis had summoned were roaring with their jaws open as well.

They looked as if they were piranhas in the Amazon chomping for prey.

They were all ancient crocodile-shaped mummies and their teeth were still intact that falling down would mean being ruthlessly ripped to pieces.

That was why the team members could only click their tongues.

‘He should feel lucky that the Captain is not actually dropping him.’

Actually, he might really drop him if he got angry.

Either way, Kwon Hyuk Soo couldn't help but gasp because Ilya was being held captive.

Ju-Heon also said the following.

“It’s already too late. This bastard is my lapdog starting today.”

‘What kind of bullshit is that crazy bastard spewing?!’

Kwon Hyuk Soo's guards immediately rushed toward Ju-Heon.

"We will go shut that bastard up!”

They pulled out their artifacts as expected of the guards of an artifact user.

They seemed to be pistol-shaped artifacts at first glance.

It was at that moment.

“Oho, don’t you dare come any closer.”

Ilya started to scream as soon as Ju-Heon said that.

It was because Ju-Heon had kicked him.

Boom!

The tightly bound Ilya started to plummet down to the ground.


While that was going on…

[The colossus from America, Tom Hugan, seems to be stepping in to locate the Monarch of Fate.]
[Tom Hugan, otherwise known as Mr. Kwon Hyuk Soo, is sworn brothers with Chairman Kwon, the Monarch of Conquest………]

The Monarch of Fate, who was still imprisoned inside the restroom, started to become optimistic. The things he was hearing from the TV outside were his only sources of hope.

“Hugan? They're talking about Kwon Hyuk Soo? The Monarch of Love? That bastard is stepping in to find me?!”

Kwon Hyuk Soo was a Monarch. Although his name wasn't on the list yet, he was very famous among the monopolizers.

He placed Chairman Kwon of TKBM in the limelight while gathering his strength and raising artifact users in the shadows.

‘That bastard is grooming an aftermath clean-up crew and some assassins.’

He had heard that Ilya Volgof of the aftermath clean-up crew was quite a unique bastard.

‘That bastard should be able to take care of Seo Ju-Heon and rescue me!’

The Monarch of Fate started to smile before grunting and groaning as he squirmed out of the tub so that he could hear better.

He then put his ear against the door and waited for more information.

‘Just a little more, just a little more!’

He was going to gather information however he could, so that he could help them find him……

It was at that moment.

Bang!

“Ow!”

The door slammed open and the Monarch of Fate, who had been unexpectedly attacked by the door while leaning against it, started to shout and cry.

Dan was the one who had opened the door.

The Monarch of Fate touched his nose that was bleeding and started to swear.

“Damn it, do you want to die?! Fuck, you damn motherfucker……!”

However, he soon gasped and closed his mouth.

It was because of the item in Dan’s hand.
It was a butcher's knife used to slaughter cows!

The Monarch of Fate started to scream after seeing the blood(?) on the knife.

“Okay! I'll stay in there! I'll just stay in there!”

The shocked Monarch of Fate slowly crawled back into the tub. He then curled up and started to sniffle.

‘Fuck, he’s going to cut my neck off with that knife if I resist.’

That was right.

He had thought that all of Seo Ju-Heon's team members who had been observing him had left and started going, ‘Wow, how great! My subordinates, I'm over here! Hurry up and find me!’

He had started to formulate a plan to escape.

But Dan had suddenly appeared in the hotel.

He seemed to have come after receiving orders from Ju-Heon. He had not gotten his memories back yet but Dan saw Ju-Heon as the person who had saved his daughter.

He had no reason to say no.

Of course, Joshua had shouted, ‘you bitch, you ended up siding with that son of a bitch Seo Ju-Heon?!’

But well…

He had been threatened by that butcher knife for talking shit about Ju-Heon.
The Monarch of Fate still could not forget Dan’s gaze from that moment.

‘Mr. VIP. Have you ever heard a pig getting slaughtered?’

Dan's gaze had told him that he should not run his mouth as he pleased.

Dan looked extremely scary even though he had just stood there while holding the knife.

His gaze was fierce, he was tall, and his muscles were firm. Just being lightly smacked by his thick arms could probably break his ribs.

Furthermore, he was a butcher, so he would know how to use the knife better than most gangsters.

Joshua had felt as if he shouldn't cause a ruckus.
Of course, this was all just a misunderstanding and Dan just tilted his head in confusion after looking at the sniffling Monarch of Fate.

‘I was just trying to ask him if he knows what kind of meat Mr. Seo Ju-Heon likes most.’

He then started to hum as he returned to the kitchen.

Today was the day that the highest quality meat was delivered.

He would serve Ju-Heon some extremely high-quality meat when Ju-Heon gets back.


“Ahhhhh!”

Ilya, who had been kicked by Ju-Heon, was plummeting down to the ground.

He was falling from the seventh floor.

Anybody would die if they fell from this height!

However, at that moment!

‘Huh?!’

He thankfully stopped just before turning into a pancake because he was tied up by the rope. But it still caused everybody who was watching to almost have heart attacks.

“That damn bastard! I feel like I've lost ten years of my life!”

Ilya was feeling relieved when the doggies and vicious crocodiles started to gather around him.
Ilya gasped after seeing the crocodiles jumping up to rip apart his lower body.

Kwon Hyuk Soo's group as well as the team members all started to scream as some of the crocodiles were even trying to rip apart Ilya’s ‘important’ part.

Seo Ju-Heon truly had a rough and vicious way of handling his subordinates.

“Hey! Seo Ju-Heon! Control yourself!”
“That’s right! I want him to become our team member still as a man!”

Even Yoo Jaeha was shouting but Ju-Heon didn't care.

In fact, Ju-Heon just nonchalantly started to speak regardless of what they were saying.

“It’s not hard to take this bastard as my subordinate as is, but I have a proposal.”
“A proposal?”

Kwon Hyuk Soo seemed shocked as he looked toward Ju-Heon.

The situation was so unbelievable that the smile that was always on his face was gone.

“Yes, hand over your artifacts. Then I'll let this bastard go.”
“Is he crazy?!”
“That motherfucking Monarch of Plunder!”

They started to foam at the mouth as expected.

“Chairman-nim, please don't listen to him!”
“That’s not Ilya. It must be a fake made by the Monarch of Pushoverness!”
"That retard! He must have created something weird again!”
“Did you really think we would fall for it?”

Yoo Jaeha, who was still hiding, became upset and shouted, ‘what the hell did you fuckers say?!’

He then tried to run toward them but Seol-A was holding him back.
As Kwon Hyuk Soo's guards tried to get closer to the ‘fake Ilya’…

[Stop, you idiots!]

Devils started to come out of Ilya’s shadow. That was Ilya’s possession-type artifact.

They gasped after realizing that these were Solomon's devils.

“Fuck, that's really Ilya?”
“Really?”

Ju-Heon viciously laughed at that moment.

“He’s real, motherfuckers!”

Ilya started to scream as soon as Ju-Heon said that.

The rope must have read Ju-Heon's mind as it quickly released Ilya.

“Ack!”

Ilya started to fall into the field of crocodiles.

‘Damn it!’

He subconsciously grabbed onto the end of the rope.

He thankfully didn't fall into the field of crocodiles, but all he could do was dangle on the rope that was floating in the air.

Ilya could only glare at Ju-Heon.

‘Is he really planning on killing me?!’

Kwon Hyuk Soo and the guards were extremely shocked.

Devils had come out of his shadow.

‘It really is the Chairman-nim’s disciple.’

Even that bastard Yoo Jaeha should not be able to copy the summoned devils.

They quickly started to shout.

“Ilya! Use your artifact! What the hell are you doing?!”
“Use your devils!”

‘Fuck, I would have done so if I could!’

The guards soon started to shout.

“Chairman-nim. It looks as if he cannot use his devils right now. There’s no other reason he would have been captured by Seo Ju-Heon!”
“I know.”

Kwon Hyuk Soo was scoffing as if he knew even without them mentioning it.

His face looked quite flustered unlike his usual self who seemed to be able to see through everything.

‘For him to have been able to capture Ilya… Seo Ju-Heon… Who the hell is this bastard? It doesn’t seem like the memory modification worked either! What the hell happened?’

Kwon Hyuk Soo was extremely shocked right now.

This was weird even if the memory modification had not worked.

Why?

Ilya was his top disciple.

Compared to him, Seo Ju-Heon should just be a thief whose only talent was in tomb raiding.

‘So why?’

Had he made the wrong judgment about Seo Ju-Heon? Kwon Hyuk Soo soon shook his head.

‘There's no way. He’s just a damn thief.’

This bastard had become a Monarch by fluke.

Kwon Hyuk Soo put on a fake innocent smile and started to speak.

“Okay, okay, so let Ilya go first.”
“Chairman-nim!”

His guard seemed shocked that he sounded as if he would do as Seo Ju-Heon wanted. But Kwon Hyuk Soo was sneering internally.

‘Ilya, you idiot.’

It must be that Ilya’s trauma acted up again.

That was right.

Ilya actually had a ton of fear about using artifacts.

He needed sedatives to suppress that trauma and Kwon Hyuk Soo had used that to tame Ilya.

‘Seo Ju-Heon was just lucky to run into Ilya at that time.’

That was why Ilya couldn't control his devils and didn't manage to modify Ju-Heon’s memories.

It seemed obvious.

‘To think he's speaking some bullshit about how Ilya is his subordinate from today on and acting as if he caught him when it was all just a fluke. Eat shit, Seo Ju-Heon.’

Kwon Hyuk Soo started to smile.

He decided to act as if he was agreeing to Ju-Heon's demands.

‘I'll pretend to do as he wants before slipping a sedative artifact to Ilya.’

Then Ilya would be able to call his devils out again. Then he would be able to modify Seo Ju-Heon's memories.

It was great since Seo Ju-Heon's subordinates all seemed to be hiding around here as well.

‘I will tame all of them as my subordinates.’

Kwon Hyuk Soo then used an artifact to approach Ju-Heon.

“C, Chairman-nim!”

It seemed to be an artifact that let him walk on air.

Kwon Hyuk Soo handed out his artifacts without any hesitation.

“These are all of the artifacts I have. Now then……”

It was at that moment.

Poooooooooow!

“?!”
“C, Chairman-nim!”

Kwon Hyuk Soo was ruthlessly sent flying. The one to punch him in the chin was none other than Solomon's devil.

It was a devil that Ilya had summoned.
