Chapter 268: Evil Nolbu Mindset (4)


[Alright, let us all praise Mr. Seo Ju-Heon!]
[Go on, shout! Hurry! Seo Ju-Heon, hooray! Hooray! You will have good luck if you follow the Monarch of Predation!]
[Ohhhhhhhh!]
[Let’s also sneer at the stupid Monarchs who couldn’t even get a Heirloom! Go on! Louder!]

"That crazy lunatic bastard.”

The Monarchs were all swearing while watching the Monarch of Fate on TV.

Maybe that was to be expected.

[Joshua Jackson (21) - Former Monarch of Fate, current follower of Seo Ju-Heon]

He had come on TV and said, ‘I have always been Seo Ju-Heon-nim’s servant.’

He also said, ‘Seostradamus is proof of that.’

All of these statements were extremely angering for people to hear.

“Did something happen to that son of a bitch's mind? Why did he suddenly become the leader of a cult?!”

The other Monarchs could tell why the Monarch of Fate was doing this.

"Why else?!”
“It’s obvious that he’s doing all that to get an Heirloom!”
“That son of a bitch is trying to be the only one of us who gets a Heirloom!”

That was right.

The Monarch of Fate, who had his memories modified by Ilya quite a bit until now, was back to his senses.

‘How do you feel? Do you remember who you are?’

The Monarch of Fate had started to shake in fear once he opened his eyes.
He had been inside a dark warehouse. There were weird devil summoning circles and candles all around him.

Ilya summoning real devils and threatening him was extremely scary.

‘This shitty aftermath clean-up crew.’

This agent was someone who could easily make him disappear from the world if he wished.

However, there was something even scarier than that.

[Seo Ju-Heon, grabbed all Heirlooms]
[The remaining Monarch candidates are no longer Monarchs]
[Was the Monarch of Fate Seo Ju-Heon's kingmaker?]
[“He must have been working with Seo Ju-Heon from the beginning and planned all of this.”]
[None of this would have happened if it wasn’t for the Monarch of Fate.]

‘Fuck, what the hell happened?!’

The current situation looked as if the Monarchs had ended up as complete fools and Seo Ju-Heon ended up with all of the Heirlooms thanks to him.

Of course, he could easily say that he was abducted and controlled by Seo Ju-Heon.

But he knew he wouldn't get off that easy.

“I'm already dead. The other Monarchs are going to kill me.’

The Monarch of Fate had rolled his eyes thinking about what he should do.

But the decisive factor was…

‘Seo Ju-Heon has all of the Heirlooms!’

That meant that Seo Ju-Heon was realistically the person in power right now! The rest of the Monarchs were just dumbasses without any Heirlooms!

He only had one way to survive!

[Let’s praaaaaaaaaaaaaaaise the Monarch of Predation!]

He had become a devoted believer. Actually, it was a cruel statement from Julian that had sealed the deal.

‘Wouldn’t the Captain throw you a Heirloom if you suck up properly?’

That was the true reason the Monarch of Fate was shouting like this.

[Everyone! We must praise Seo Ju-Heon-niiiiiiiiiiiim!]

He was a smart bat ready to switch sides as it benefited him.


[Believe in Seo Ju-Heon. You will have good luck. Let’s plunder the luck of your neighbors. Ohhhhhh praiiiiiiise him!]
[Monarch of Fate: “There is only one savior. Seo Ju-Heon-nim is our messiah.”]
[Seo Ju-Heon is the messiah? “Is this regarding Nostradamus's prophecy about the end of the world in 1999?”]

The Monarch of Fate was busy evangelizing after becoming a Seo Ju-Heon fanatic.

He looked ready to serve Seo Ju-Heon as a god if it meant that he would live and get a Heirloom.

There were some weird statements mixed in as well, but it didn't matter. People started to talk once the Monarch of Fate sided with Seo Ju-Heon.

The other Monarchs could clearly see that the Monarch of Fate had betrayed them, but who cared? Julian was very satisfied while looking at the nonsense of an article.

“Good. He’s paying for his meals. Using the bait about giving Heirlooms is truly the best against monopolizers.”

The monopolizers were the world's most selfish and greedy people.

Ilya, the one in charge of torture, clicked his tongue at the desperate Monarch of Fate.

“Do you think that the Captain would really give him a Heirloom?”
“Of course not. There’s no way that our artifactphile bastard of a Captain would do that.”
“…….”

The Vice Captain of the tomb raiding team smiled brightly.

He was the strategist who would come up with all sorts of plans for the tomb raiding team, however……

“Just torture the Monarch of Fate a bit if it looks like he’s going to run.”

‘Wait, did he just say torture?’

“……Aren’t you a human rights lawyer?”

‘Did this guy just give up on life after becoming the Monarch of Pillage?’

However, Julian seemed to have a plan.

‘I'm sure the monopolizers are all going to head our way to get a Heirloom.’

Julian was not trying to rub it in their faces as Ju-Heon would do. This was just setting the foundation for a future plan.

‘Even the captain should help out with my plan this time.’

Unfortunately, forget helping him, Ju-Heon had just been glaring at the team members for days.

Why?

“Like I said, what are your Heirlooms? Take them out. You need to take it out for me to take a look."
“No, we said no, Captain-nim.”
“Hey. It's not like I'm going to eat you. Take it out!”
“Liar! You’re going to absorb it!”

‘I should just kill them all.’

The team members seemed to have realized his plan.

“Tsk, I was going to switch them if they were good. You terrible bastards.”
“…… Are you aware that you shared your true intentions out loud?”

Ju-Heon looked around at his team.

First was Yoo Jaeha…… this son of a bitch never mentioned anything about Heirlooms in their previous life even while on the brink of death. Since there was no way he would say anything about it now… pass.

Next… Pass on the currently out of his mind Julian.

After that… Ilya was looking at him with sparkling eyes and his hand reached out, which meant he was saying, ‘pay me and I'll tell you.’

He was clearly looking for a way to rip Ju-Heon off.

Dan was smiling in the way he usually smiled before he nagged Ju-Heon like Ju-Heon's father so that was annoying.

Then……

"Chl…”
“Oh my. I'll happily let you know if you give me your artifacts, Captain-nim.”
“…….”

‘How are there no normal people in this tomb raiding team? That means she has no intention of telling me.’

In the end, Ju-Heon peeked toward Irene and Seol-A.

He didn't know about those disrespectful traitors but these two should be willing to tell him about their Heirlooms.

Irene and Seol-A flinched once Ju-Heon looked at them.

They really didn’t know what to do after receiving Ju-Heon’s passionate gaze.

‘Uh, uh, no, I can’t.’

The risk of Ju-Heon’s Heirloom was pretty much a given as 'greed for artifacts".

However, Ju-Heon couldn't take their Heirlooms no matter how much information they gave him.

Why?

He would need to kill them to take it!

There was no way that Ju-Heon would do that.

Chloe had told them that since that was the case, it was probably best for Ju-Heon’s mindset to not know anything about their Heirlooms at all.

She said he might become even more possessive if he knew what they were…

That was probably the reason.

‘Mr. Ju-Heon, I'm sorry!’

‘Captain-nim! I'm sorry! I promise to tell you later once your risk dies down!’

However, Ju-Heon started to make a move(?).

Boom.

“?!”

Ju-Heon had attempted the push against the wall move! He was doing it against two women at once!

Well, all he did was put one hand against the wall and slightly lean.

“Irene. Seol-A.”

The way he was speaking while right up against them made both of them turn extremely red.

His voice quietly echoing in their ears was just too much for them.

They started to stealthily push each other out of the way with their butts.

However, they lost all rationality once his face became closer.

“Now then, please take out your Heirlooms. Let me see what they look like.”
“U, umm, Captain-nim, that……”
"What's wrong? You don't want to do it?”
“Ugh!”

They would probably never see this kind of passion from Ju-Heon if it wasn't for the Crow’s artifact.

‘No, these eyes are a scam!’

As Irene and Seol-A forgot about the promise they all made with each other and were about to take out their artifacts!

“Ahhhh!”

Yoo Jaeha suddenly threw an artifact in the air.

“Here, an artifact! Oh, another artifact! Look, here’s another artifact!”

He was throwing them around as if he was throwing snacks for a dog.

Ju-Heon’s eyes sparkled and he immediately jumped to grab the artifacts.

He still looked so stylish with his long legs and model pose that Jaeha was envious and wanted to curse him, but anyway…

“Who else but a loyal subordinate like me could stop him, huh?”
“……Are you sure you didn't just interrupt him because you were jealous?”
“Fuck, shut the hell up you Monarch of Premature Ejaculation!”

Yoo Jaeha was crying as he looked toward Chloe.

“Chloe, what do you think? The Captain-nim’s artifact risk seems to have become even more of a headache!”
“I'm not sure. Isn’t it kind of cute?”
“Shit, how the hell is it cute?!”

Yoo Jaeha grabbed the back of his neck.

“My goodness, at this rate he would be easily seduced if a beautiful woman showed up with artifacts all over her body!”

As he said that…

[My goodness, at this rate he would be easily seduced if a beautiful woman showed up with artifacts all over her body!]

“Oho, that would work on Seo Ju-Heon?”

There were Monarchs eavesdropping on their conversation.

‘This is great. I was wondering how I could get an Heirloom from Seo Ju-Heon.’

He had unintentionally given away the most useful strategy.


In a New York cafe at the same time.

“Damn it. Seo Ju-Heon, that bastard, do we really……?!”

This man was Chairman Kwon's son-in-law and one of TKBM's excavation team captains.

Yoon Shi Woo was grinding his teeth while waiting for Ju-Heon at a cafe.

“Fuck, when the hell is this son of a bitch going to show up?!”

Today was an important day.

‘I need to make a deal for a Heirloom no matter what.’

They could not use Divine-Grade artifacts without one. That was why they decided to suck up to Ju-Heon this time.

They even brought artifacts as gifts after hearing that he liked artifacts.

However…

“We’ve wasted three days already!”
"Why the hell do we need to do all this for that bastard?! Huh?!”

The other TKBM captains who were here with him sighed as well.

They were captains with Ju-Heon in the past. They were jealous of Ju-Heon and were the ones responsible for turning Yoo Jaeha and sending the tomb raiding team to the afterlife.

They were grinding their teeth in anger while looking at their watches.

“It’s been 14 hours today…… That son of a bitch. The Chairman-nim is here too.”
“Didn’t the other teams say that he met with them pretty quickly?”

They peeked toward Chairman Kwon who looked ready to explode at any moment.

They originally tried to make a deal over the phone.

However, this was what Ju-Heon had said to them.

[Get lost. Tell that old bastard to personally come here.]

That was why Chairman Kwon had no choice but to drag his still injured body out.

However…

“That son of a bitch! Does he think that the Chairman-nim is a joke?! Does he think that the leader of TKBM is a joke?!”
“How many days has he left us hanging already?!”
"Does he think he’s the shit because he has the Heirlooms?!”

It was at that moment.

"Aigoo, our dear Chairman-nim. Did you wait a long time?”
“!”

Their eyes opened wide after seeing an unexpected individual. Yoo Jaeha was here along with……

“T, the Monarch of Destitution.’

They started to shake.

They then looked at the two people who arrived with anxious eyes.

“W, what the? I thought Seo Ju-Heon was going to come. W, why the hell are you guys here?”
“What’s wrong? Is there an issue with us being here?”

Yoo Jaeha smiled wickedly.

“We are members of the tomb raiding team’s sales department.”

‘S, sales department?

The Monarch of Fraud and the Monarch of Destitution are the sales team?! They might make the partner business go bankrupt during a deal!’

However, the two of them were smiling.

“Now then, shall we start our chat?”

Some headache-inducing bastards had appeared instead of Seo Ju-Heon.
