Chapter 276: Jack the Ripper (5)


“You! What’s wrong with Nina’s chest size?! I'm going to sue you!”

Julian grabbed Ju-Heon by the collar and Jaeha said something to calm him down.

"Well, it's true that she’s flat-chested……”
“It's big! Nina’s chest is big enough! You got that?!”
“……Are you being serious?”

Julian was crying internally as he let go. Ju-Heon couldn't bear to keep watching and agreed with Julian.

“Okay, okay. Your sister has big boobs. Are you happy now? They’re great.”

Julian grabbed Ju-Heon by the collar again.

“You little punk. What do you mean they’re big?! Are you making fun of Nina right now?! Huh?!”

‘This bastard is getting angry regardless of how we play along with him.

Julian looked sad while looking at Nina.

“……Only I'm allowed to make fun of my sister.”
“…….”

It didn’t matter. The important thing was looking into Nina’s situation.

“Ilya.”
“Yes, Captain.”
“Take her away. Pull out all information by tomorrow.”
“I understand.”

Julian became anxious.

It was because Ilya was in charge of the tomb raiding team’s information gathering but also its torturing.

Pulling out information from captured enemies using any methods necessary was his job.

That using any methods necessary was what Julian was worried about since he knew Ilya’s personality.

It didn't mean that Ilya would use violence against her, but his specialty was mental attacks and torture using his devils and spell books.

“Ilya, wait……!”

Ju-Heon’s eyes flashed.

“Ilya. Don’t let Julian talk to her at all.”
“!”

Julian anxiously shouted toward Ju-Heon.

“Wait!”

But Ju-Heon was stern.

“No family members allowed. You know how it is.”
“…….”

Julian bit down on his lips.

It was understandable.

Nina was an enemy who had tried to kill them.

There were too many questionable parts to say she was just the Monarch of Seduction's subordinate.

‘There’s also the fact that she has the same scar as the Jack the Ripper Ju-Heon met in the past.’

Ju-Heon pointed to the scar on the back of Nina’s neck.

It was a peculiar scar that would not be common. That was the reason it had been so memorable.

“Thoroughly investigate this scar. Use any and all means necessary. Do whatever will give you the most accurate information.”

Julian turned completely pale after hearing that.

"Wait, Captain! Then at least…!”

He was about to grab Ju-Heon and ask him to let him at least watch what happened to Nina if he promised he wouldn't do anything.

Ilya lightly chuckled and started to put on a black pair of leather gloves.

“Don’t worry too much. The Captain saying all this is actually telling me not to overdo it.”

Of course, Ilya had no plans on listening to that order.


“Mmph, mmph!”

Nina was huffing while being questioned by Ilya.

“Mmph, mmmmmph!”

She was extremely angry while looking at the man in front of her.

The man in front of Nina was not Ilya but the Monarch of Pushoverness.

“Hey Nina, aren’t you hungry?”

Nina was extremely angry after hearing him asking things like that so nonchalantly.

‘Damn it!’

She could have taken the Heirlooms if it was not for this damn meat shield.

‘How does he not have a single scar on him?’

An angry Nina flailed enough for her kick to reach Yoo Jaeha.

“Mmmmph! Mmmmmmph!”

She might have been telling him to die. Yoo Jaeha felt wronged.

“Ow! Why are you doing this to me?! What the hell did I do wrong?”

She probably thought that he had done a lot of things wrong.

“Mmmmph!”

Ilya started to shout after hearing the beaten up Yoo Jaeha whining to him.

“Hey, you’re in my way. Get the hell out.”
“Aww why, you’re done with your investigation anyway.”
“Bullshit. Look at you bringing food because the captive is a girl.”
“Hey hey, you're the one who is too much for not even giving her a sip of wat……hey! Why are you eating all of it?!”

Ilya stuffed the bread in his mouth as if he was a hamster before getting angry.

“Shut the hell up, you damn pushover. You just answer my question.”
“What?!”
“How the hell did you die in the past life when you have the phoenix artifact?”
“……Why do you ask?”
“So that I know how to kill you.”

Yoo Jaeha couldn't believe it.

“Sigh! There's naturally a way to do it! Whatever, just go outside! The Captain-nim wants you to report what you've found out!”
“Tsk.”

Nina’s eyes flashed once Ilya recalled his devils and left.

‘This is my chance.’

Now that the torture expert was gone, her chance to escape had come.

‘They just left this weakling behind.’

This bastard was an artist… No, a meat shield with no fighting power whatsoever!

‘I'm going to get out of this prison first!’

She charged toward Yoo Jaeha who was not paying attention.

However!

Boom!

Nina slammed into something and rolled on the ground while clutching her forehead.

“U, uuuuugh.”

She felt as if she had run into a cement wall. Yoo Jaeha was chuckling at her.

“Hey hey, I accept that I seem like the easiest to push around on this tomb raiding team but did you really think he left me alone in here without any preparation?”
“……!”

The whole area was full of bulletproof glass made with his da Vinci's artifact.

“This is special bulletproof glass made with an artifact you sucker!”
“Ugh.”
“This oppa and the unnies will bring you cake if you are a good girl. Got it?”

Nina could only slam against the glass in anger.

‘That damn son of a bitch!’


While Nina was slamming against the glass…

“It really is Chairman Kwon's doing?”
“Yes, after looking through her memories for 18 hours, she was revealed to be someone from TKBM and not the Monarch of Seduction's subordinate. To be more specific, the Monarch of Healing had been experimenting on her. That girl ended up in the Monarch of Healing’s hands once she teamed up with Chairman Kwon.

Julian urgently asked a question after hearing that report.

“Then Nina, it really is Nina?”
“It is. I saw her memories of living with you as well.”

Julian stumbled and sat down on the chair.

He had wondered if it was real but Nina truly was Jack the Ripper.

“Then why does she not remember me?”
“What I saw was her subconscious memories. That doesn't mean that she remembers it.”

Julian started grinding his teeth in anger.

That meant that TKBM or the Monarch of Healing had erased her memories.

“But why?”

Ju-Heon answered that question for him.

“It’s obvious. They did it so that they could use her as Jack the Ripper.”
“!”

Ju-Heon handed over the document Chloe had analyzed.

“The scar on the back of her neck… It’s quite a headache.”
"Quite a headache? What the hell is it?”
“What is it? It’s a modification artifact that turns a person into a human weapon.”

They were all shocked.

“Human weapon?!”
“How else would a regular girl use a homicidal maniac’s artifact without any hesitation? It must be the Monarch of Healing's doing.”
“……!”

They had done all that to use Nina as Jack the Ripper!

Ilya drew something on a piece of paper and handed it to them.

“This is what the artifact looked like. They used this artifact to modify Nina into a human weapon who cannot feel pain or guilt.”
“Wow, you suck at drawing.”
“…….”

Ilya glared at Yoo Jaeha who had come over to mock him.

Ju-Heon soon made a comment.

“Even I've never seen this artifact before……”

They wondered how he could use such a terrible drawing to tell but Ju-Heon had enough information based on its abilities.

“Yeah, no matter how many times I think about it, I’ve never seen that artifact before.”
“Ho. Even the greatest under heaven Captain-nim doesn’t know what it is?”

Ilya gave an answer that seemed to explain the reason.

“Apparently it is a new artifact they made with Un-known……”
“!”

Ju-Heon's eyes flashed.

Un-known.

That was the suspicious item with Pandora’s Executive Board that they didn’t know about. Was that why he didn't know about this artifact?

As he had that thought… Julian jumped up as he was unable to hold back his anger.

“Those old bastards! How dare they do that to Nina……?!”
“Woah, woah, Kongming. Sit down for now.”
“How the hell can I sit down?! If you're trying to tell me something to calm me down……!”
“No. I'm about to tell you something that’ll make you angry.”

Julian grabbed the back of his neck.

“There’s something else?!”

Ju-Heon sighed.

“Kongming, you ended up Chairman Kwon’s slave in the past because he agreed to help you find your sister, right?”
“Yes. Nobody was able to find her until you found her 10 years later……”
“No. TKBM wasn’t looking for her back then either.”
“What?!”
“I looked at those shitty TKBM bastards’ search records and started looking for her myself after seeing that they were only looking for her in weird places.”
“What?!”
“I understand it all now. That bastard Chairman Kwon had your sister under his control but lied to you that he couldn't find her.”
“?!”
“He was shamelessly using her as Jack the Ripper while lying to your face. TKBM was the one who used Jack the Ripper for 10 years after all.”

Julian started to foam at the mouth.

“Then……!”
“If you think about it, Jack the Ripper's appearances dwindled down once I found your sister for you. They probably stopped using her as much because they were worried that you would find out.”

Julian was about to faint. A thunderbolt flashed inside the room because of his anger.

Bang! Crack!

An extremely strong thunderbolt swept through the hotel room.

“Kyaaaa!”

Seol-A, Irene, and even the rope tightly hugged Ju-Heon after being scared by it.

Julian looked extremely angry.

"Those bastards pulled that crap in the past and are doing the same thing now……!”

Ju-Heon said something to Julian who was huffing in anger.

“The cost of everything you destroyed is coming out of your paycheck.”
“?!”
