“Those are things I gave my sister for her birthday.”
“Can I ask why you have them instead?”
His smile looked extremely scary.
Michelle couldn’t help but be scared. Her mind was a chaotic mess right now.
Seo Ju-Heon was the worst criminal in the world that even Pandora was wary of him.
But the reason she was shocked was not just because she saw him. It was because of what he had just said.
‘Sister? He just said sister, right? Did I just hear wrong?’
Ju-Heon quickly walked over as she was thinking. She couldn't help but step backward.
Michelle was backed against the wall. Ju-Heon brought his face up close and started talking again.
“Are you deaf? Can't you hear me? I'm asking you a question. Why do you have the things I bought my sister?”
She snapped back to her senses and started shouting.
“H, hold on, what do you mean your sister?! Who is your sister?”
Ju-Heon just scoffed.
“Who else would it be? That shabby hikikomori who was at Pandora just now. She looks just like me but looks much dirtier and uglier.”
Ju-Heon then tapped on the necklace.
“Your stepsister who received this necklace as a present.”
Michelle got the chills as soon as he said that. It was very different with her thinking about it and Ju-Heon confirming it with his own mouth.
How was this possible?!
‘He's that bitch’s older brother?!’
Michelle felt as if someone had hit her on the head.
Well, Joy did look like Ju-Heon. If she looked closely, they both had large refreshing eyes.
But you couldn’t say people were related just because they looked similar. There were people who looked like celebrities!
Furthermore, the fact that one was a guy and one was a girl made it so that they gave off different vibes.
And even though she had suspected it…!
‘I remember my mom and dad said they weren’t related!’
Her parents had been asked by their connections time after time since Ju-Heon appeared.
‘Allenby, your adopted daughter looks a lot like Seo Ju-Heon.’
‘Hoho, all Asians just look alike.’
‘No, they really look similar. Are you sure they aren't related? What was your adopted daughters original Korean name again…’
Her parents had gotten angry after hearing that.
‘Are you saying anybody who looks alike is related?! They are absolutely not related!’
That was why Michelle had been thinking they weren't related.
They had never treated Joy as a part of their family but they even locked Joy up in a storage room as Seo Ju-Heon became more famous. They made it so that she could never show her face.
They didn’t even make her act as a nanny for the children of guests or work as a maid serving them food.
Michelle had thought that that was a bit weird, but……!
‘They really were related?!’
Michelle started shaking.
She heard Ju-Heon’s vicious voice at that moment.
“Now then, how about you answer my question.”
Michelle snapped out of it and urgently shouted.
“T, this necklace is mine! So is the bag! I don’t know what the hell you are talking about! Unbelievable.”
“Really? Where did you get it?”
“Where? it was a limited edition item at a Department Store…kyaaaaaa!”
It was because Ju-Heon ripped the necklace off of Michelle's neck.
Ju-Heon then started to laugh.
“This is a custom necklace I made for her so there is only one in the world.”
“So is this bag.”
Ju-Heon opened the bag.
Joy's initials were clearly visible in a corner of the bag.
Ju-Heon had it all custom made.
“Your clothes look oddly familiar too.”
Michelle was scared. But the moment she decided to use an artifact to escape!
"Where do you think you’re going?”
Michelle clutched her stomach and fell down to the ground. Ju-Heon's ruthless fist had slammed right into the pit of her stomach.
“Cough, cough, ugh!”
Michelle groaned and flailed around after having been sent flying like a piece of paper.
She was hurting so much that she thought she was going to die. A regular fist would have hurt as well but this fist was no regular fist.
‘What the hell did he do?!’
Ju-Heon slyly shook his hand.
“Ah, sorry about that. I forgot that I was using Hercules’s artifact.”
‘What?!’ Michelle groaned.
‘Did he just say Hercules?!’
Ju-Heon then stepped on Michelle and continued to speak.
“Anyways, don’t think about doing something stupid because you are an artifact user. I can’t guarantee how I will respond.”
Ju-Heon took out Joy's phone. He then showed Michelle the texts she had sent yesterday.
“You're the bitch who sent these, right?”
Michelle nodded her head with a scared expression. Now that Ju-Heon confirmed it, he then showed her someone else’s message.
“Now tell me who this number belongs to.”
The messages were quite the spectacle.
[Hurry up and deposit the money!]
[See what happens when you come home during your vacation. I'm going to break your fucking legs and shove you into the storage room.]
[I threw away everything in your room. Don’t bring in anything other than what we assigned you.]
[Get your ass home right now. You should just be doing housework instead of wasting your time at school.]
Ju-Heon’s eyes flashed.
Michelle started shaking after seeing the number.
‘He’s going to kill me if I tell him.’
“I, I don’t kn…kyaaa!”
Michelle started crying as Ju-Heon snapped one of her fingers back. Ju-Heon started to speak.
"Should I break another one?”
“I, it’s my mom! My mother!”
“Then this is your father?”
Michelle turned pale after seeing the messages from her dad. They were different from her mom’s, but……
[Bring me some water NOW.]
[Why the hell aren’t you bringing me my food?!]
[Hurry up and take off your clothes and come serve the kids.]
Her father had sent many messages treating her stepsister as a maid. There was also a message that could be misunderstood.
That was probably the reason.
“H, hold on……it’s a misunderstanding. All of these are just misunder……ugh!”
Ju-Heon smiled brightly.
“I don't expect an adopted kid to be treated like royalty, but you should at least treat them humanely. Don't you think so?”
“Where do your parents live right now?”
She started to shake again.
“Someone, I need to call someone!’
Her whole family might be killed by Ju-Heon at this rate. Now that she thought about it, Joy was one thing but Seo Ju-Heon was currently breaking into Pandora!
‘S, someone, p……”
“Oh, nobody is going to come. So hurry up and tell me your address.”
What the hell is going on?’
What else could it be?
“Wow, he succeeded in the 'take away Prometheus's power' plan.”
Joy, who had come out of the research facility, was in a van near Pandora’s HQ.
Pretty much Ju-Heon’s entire team was waiting inside the van right now.
Jaeha seemed really happy while looking at the numerous keys.
“Those retards probably still have no idea what happened!”
They really didn’t.
Joy had done something she wasn’t supposed to do when she went into Pandora’s research facility.
Of course, she had properly made them a key.
She had used Prometheus's attribute of having the path be opened for the Supreme Leader.
‘They never said I couldn’t make multiple keys.’
Her plan from the beginning was to go into Pandora’s facility and suck out Prometheus’s power.
Joy shared the keys with the team members and explained.
“This should be able to get you into most of Pandora’s facilities. Anywhere that the Supreme Leader Prometheus would have had access, whether it be barriers, buildings, or tombs, should be available. But they have limited usage unlike Ju-Heon's key and remember that it cannot close things like he can.”
Jaeha, who had been envious of the Majesty's Key since the moment Ju-Heon got it, was extremely happy.
“Jackpot. Doesn't that mean I can go into changing rooms or even bank safes with this? I can get into pretty much anything as long as it is a Pandora owned building?”
But at that time…
“Ow, ow ow. What the hell?!”
Jaeha’s key suddenly started flailing like crazy.
“Ow, ow, ow! You bastard!”
Jaeha was ruthlessly pecked away by the key. The other team members’ keys were fine but Jaeha’s key was throwing a fit.
“What the hell?! What’s wrong with this thing?!”
Joy started sweating bullets and looked away.
“Actually…there are some duds because I was quickly mass producing them…”
“But there are no issues with how they function……!”
“That’s not the problem!”
Jaeha’s key was the only one aggressively attacking him, but the other keys had some issues as well.
Some of the other keys were whining and acting cute, hiding, trying to run away, had princess syndrome, or even started stealing things!
“Hey! Where do you think you are going?! Aaaaaahng!”
‘……Is it really okay to use these things?’
Oh well, none of that mattered right now.
“The important thing is that the Captain-nim was able to get past Pandora’s security to get inside there.”
He was exactly right.
“I got quite an interesting artifact thanks to you guys.”
Ju-Heon was waving a key that Joy had handed him as he smiled.
The one that Ju-Heon had was the only one of the mass produced keys with an extremely high durability.
[The All-Access Key made by grinding up Prometheus (SS-Grade:Divine-Grade - Consumable Artifact)]
Remaining Uses: 998/999
Michelle started shaking after seeing the mysterious key.
She didn’t know what it was but it was obvious that he had used it to get past Pandora’s security system!
That wasn't all.
‘The key that that bitch made for us might not be normal!’
Even if there seemed to be no issues when they tested it out…
‘I can't let them use it!’
The people over at the lab were wondering what was going on.
“Why is Michelle taking so long?”
Henry, who was waiting for Joy, looked outside. Why was she taking so long when he was thinking about having a long, serious conversation with Joy?
Joy was talented, she seemed to have a great future and her face was pretty.
He couldn't help but be interested.
‘She does seem to dress modestly, but…ah, okay. I can just buy her some clothes today.’
He needed to get her interested in him to bring up quitting her job and coming to Pandora anyway.
But Michelle wasn’t coming back with Joy for some reason.
“They didn't seem to have a good relationship with each other. I hope they aren’t arguing.”
He had sent her a text asking why she wasn't coming back but had not heard back.
As Henry frowned and was about to walk out of the lab…
He received a message.
[Conversation between sisters going long.]
Henry sighed and responded to her.
[Don’t make her cry. It’ll be hard to seduce her.]
[Yes. I plan on having the time of my life with her today.]
[Oh my, then how about 7pm at the Crystal Hotel? I'll get her very interested. ^^]
“She really is sharp about these things.”
[Okay. Butter her up and bring her there.]
He received another message a few seconds later.
[Oh right, please make sure to test the key before then. We have to make sure she’s not tricking us. ^^]
“That was the plan anyway.”
Henry grabbed the key Joy left for them and called his subordinates.
“Let’s head to the Great Prison right outside here first. I have some time until 7pm now.”
As he was doing that…
Ju-Heon's eyes were on fire while looking at Michelle’s phone.
“Time of your life my ass. This damn horny son of a bitch.”
Wasn’t this to be expected?
The one sending messages to Henry was actually Ju-Heon.
A bloodied Michelle was shaking in both fear and pain under Ju-Heon's foot.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
[Hurry up and take off your clothes and come serve the kids.]
I can see why Ju-Heon would get angry.
