Chapter 345: Putting your mansion on fire to catch a bedbug (1)


The experimental tube with Un-known finally opened.

Shhh!

The experimental tube, a tube large enough to fit a person, descended to the ground. Un-known poured out from it once the tube disappeared!

They looked like small pearls. The Allenby couple gasped.

“Mmph, mmmmmph!”

They desperately tried to grab the rolling Un-knowns.

However…

“No, you guys can’t pick it up.”

Ju-Heon laughed and took out what looked like a water bottle. When he opened the lid…

Bababababaaaaang!

There was a loud noise and the little pearls rolling on the ground were all sucked in. It was as strong as a vacuum cleaner.

Ilya’s eyes opened while looking at it.

“Isn’t that Miller’s artifact?! That’s the Gourd-shaped bottle from the Journey to the West!”
“Yes, I borrow it saying I need to sweep some stuff.”

Ilya wondered if Ju-Heon really ‘borrowed’ it.

But the Allenby couple were grinding their teeth.

‘These are extremely important artifacts!’

But they soon exchanged glances with each other.

“It's fine. It’s meaningless if he only has Un-known.”

The husband chuckled at his wife’s comment.

“That’s true, it needs the earth artifact to use it.”

The earth artifact they were talking about was the Gaia artifact from Greek mythology.

Ju-Heon and Ilya, who had no idea that the Gaia artifact was necessary, were busy focusing on something else.

Piiiiiiiiiiii-- piiiiiii-

They were focusing on the alarm that was going off.

Ju-Heon motioned to Ilya.

“Ah, it looks like the minions will come in droves. Let’s get out of here. Oh, bring those shitheads with us.”
“Yes sir.”

The Allenby couple smiled as they started to walk.

‘Yes, leave without looking for Gaia.’

‘There will be an opportunity even if we are captured as long as Un-known is not fully taken.’

‘We have to make sure Gaia is not taken.’

Gaia was an extremely strong artifact even without Un-known.

But at that moment…

‘!’

The Allenby couple almost screamed. It was because the rope shoved itself in between their faces.

And then…

[#$&#!]
Apparently you need Gaia’s artifact to use it! You need it!

It immediately rushed over to Ju-Heon. Ju-Heon laughed out loud after seeing the scribbles it wrote in a notebook.

“What the hell? You need Gaia’s artifact?”

The smart Ju-Heon smiled wickedly.

"Hmm, there’s no way that these bastards don’t have that artifact when they are using Un-known……”
“I'm sure these bastards have it. That’s a super Divine-Grade artifact, shouldn't we take it?”
“?!”

The Allenby couple gasped. Ju-Heon didn’t care and asked Ilya a question.

“Ilya, did you not see it while going through their memories?”
“I'm not sure……ah, was that Gaia?”

Ilya quickly realized his mistake.

He had seen some suspicious memories in the couple’s minds but he was reading through everything so quickly that he had just moved past it.

Ilya recalled those memories before quickly changing directions.

“Gaia is over here!”

The rope squirmed against the Allenby couple’s bodies and thanked them.

[$#&#!]
Thanks for the info! Thank you!

The Allenby couple's pupils were shaking.

‘No, this isn’t what we wanted!’


While that was going on, there was someone who was grinding his teeth so hard that they might turn to dust.

“Fuck, why can't I do it like Seo Ju-Heon can?!”

It was Henry.

He could only scream as he couldn't do anything while stuck to Helios's Chariot, the berserk motorcycle.

‘What the fuck is wrong with this thing?! Why doesn’t it stop when I press the breaks?!’

Vroooooooooooom!

Pressing on the breaks made it charge forward even faster.
And if he pressed down on the accelerator…

VROOOOOOOOOOOM!

It burst forward even faster!

"Fuck! Stop!”

It was at that moment.

[Henry!]

Henry was shocked to hear a voice from his watch.

The voice was coming from the logo on his watch.

Henry couldn't believe it.

"What the hell…this voice…is that you John?”

[Yes.]

Henry scoffed after realizing that it was an artifact.

“You stuck this kind of artifact on me?”

But John sounded relieved.

[We put it on everyone to eavesdrop on the knights but…in this situation, I'm actually glad I did.]

Henry couldn't believe it.

“Hey! How could you even put something like this on me?!”

[That’s not the issue right now. What is going on? What was that explosion earlier?]

“What? Ah, i, it’s nothing.”

Henry could not admit that he made a mistake because he was a damn horny bastard even if he died.

This project was assigned to him so he would take all the blame anyway.

“Anyway, I'm hanging up since I'm busy. It looks like Seo Ju-Heon might have barged into the R&D facility.”

[Ok……what? Wait a minute. What?]

“Don’t worry, I will go and protect Un-known.]

[Wai……! Hold on! Not that bastard! Henry! Don’t go there until I get there!]

"Ah, shut up, you damn traitor! What do you mean wait until you get here? He’ll steal everything by the time you get here from Italy.”

[Henry!]

“We're in an extremely dangerous situation right now. It’s over if Seo Ju-Heon gets his hands on Un-known. He has an extremely skilled appraiser!”

[!]

Julian was the appraiser he was talking about. If Seo Ju-Heon takes Un-known with him, that bastard will definitely appraise it.

But that would cause them trouble.

‘We can't let that bastard appraise those artifacts no matter what!’

"Anyways, just hang up and I'll protect it.”

‘Hang up my ass!’

John seemed extremely flustered after hearing what was going on.

[Wait, it's that serious right now? Hold on, you are in charge of that facility! What the hell were you doing while that happened?!]

Henry angrily destroyed the watch.

John put a hand against his forehead after the call ended.

“Henry, you son of a bitch…!”

There seemed to have been numerous accidents since he left for the Vatican.

Even if Henry had a scam-like Divine-Grade artifact…

‘His opponent is Seo Ju-Heon!’

How had such things happened?

He soon shook his head.

‘No. We need to first stop Seo Ju-Heon…no, Julian Miller from getting his hands on Un-known.’

John quickly started to take action in Italy. He first put in some calls to other knights for reinforcements.


Those calls must have gone through as…

Pandora's soldiers started to all gather at the R&D facility. They must have come from the HQ that was just minutes away by car.

There were soldiers coming from the different branches as well.

“Surround them from the outside! Use the teleportation prevention artifact!”
"We must not let Seo Ju-Heon get out of here!”

Ju-Heon laughed as more people started to gather at the R&D facility.

“Look at them foaming at the mouth because I barged into a single Pandora facility.”

Well, they were responding like this because it was none other than the Monarch of Plunder who was here.

Furthermore, it was because this impregnable fortress of theirs they had been so confident about had been breached. Why did Ju-Heon have to barge into this facility of all places?

Ju-Heon didn't think much of it since this was not the facility he really wanted to destroy.

‘The Druid’s Clocktower.’

That was the building with Pandora’s Executive Board that was not harmed even when he launched Gungnir to attack it.

‘But I will start here.’

As Ju-Heon chuckled and started to use his abilities…

“Hey! What the hell are you guys doing?!”

‘!’

They heard a familiar voice in the facility. Ju-Heon and Ilya both snickered after nonchalantly turning their heads.

“Oh, you're here?”
“Looks like the Vice Captain and Seol-A are here.”

Julian grabbed the back of his neck after seeing them being extremely chill.

‘I thought these shitheads said they were just going to go in to quietly take care of the stepsister!’

“What kind of bullshit did you pull this time?! And Ilya! You should have thought about dragging the Captain out right away! Why are you working with him to break things in here?! Huh?! Do you want your pictures side by side on the front page of the newspaper?!”
“It’s fun. I really should follow the Captain around instead of you more often.”
“Ow!”

Seol-A patted Julian who looked as if he would die from high blood pressure.

“The two of them work well together in these situations.”
“It’s because both of them are extremely wicked bastards! Ah, whatever! Let’s go out before it gets dangerous!”

Ju-Heon just laughed and threw the water bottle to Julian.

“You just take this and head out first.”
“This…hey! When the hell did you take this?!”
“Shut up. I need to make sure to take Gaia’s artifact with me.”
“What? Gaia’s artifact? That highest-grade artifact?”

It was at that moment.

Julian frowned after receiving the water bottle, the Golden Horned King and Silver Horned King’s Purple Gold Red Gourd from Ju-Heon.

He then urgently took an Un-known out of the bottle.

“Hold on, Seo Ju-Heon. What the hell are these things?”
“What else?” I gathered up all of the Un-knowns.”

Julian scoffed after taking a closer look at an Un-known.

“This is Un-known?”


While that was going on…

“Aaah! That’s right! Yeah! Now I remember!”
“!”

Joy jumped in shock after hearing Jaeha suddenly shout. Joy and Jaeha were waiting patiently inside Sleipnir.

It was fine that Julian ran out huffing after seeing the R&D facility being destroyed, but…

‘Wasn't this guy sleeping? What is up with him?’

Jaeha had been deep in thought since the moment Ju-Heon said that he was going to go look for Un-known.

“Jaeha oppa, what’s wrong?”

Jaeha was happy to hear Joy call him oppa, but it was only for a moment.

He quickly snapped out of it.

“Phone, the phone……!”

He quickly pressed 1 on the speed dial to call Ju-Heon.

“Ah, I finally remembered it. Damn it! Why the hell is this guy not picking up?”
"What did you remember?”
“I don't remember completely, but I definitely saw how Un-known was created in my past life. And the US president was there at that time! I couldn't say anything about it because I couldn't remember it!”
“E, excuse me? Past life? President? What do you mea……”

Jaeha hung up the phone and urgently sent a message.

[Un-known's ingredients are people. People who have tomb syndrome! So please at least get some photo evidence!]

“!”


"What? An athlete?!”

Ilya's jaw dropped after hearing Julian’s comments.

“And this is the singer who recently died from tomb syndrome?”
“Yeah.”
“And this guy was someone who was protesting Pandora? He also had tomb syndrome and then went missing?”
“Yeah.”
"What the hell are you talking about?”
“It’s exactly as I said. These are all people.”

Un-known was a substitute for the < Majesty's Cradle >. Basically, it was the substitute for an artifact that creates artifacts.

Ju-Heon started to chuckle.

“They said that they were going to create substitutes for the Majesty’s Treasures and made quite an unbelievable artifact.”

It was at that moment.

“It is exactly as he said. So hand that back over.”
“!”

Something slammed into the R&D facility.

Bang!

It was a motorcycle on fire.

"Who the fuck is this guy?”

Henry must have decided that he needed to stop Ju-Heon even if it meant destroying the R&D facility in the process.

The Allenby couple were grinding their teeth while looking at him.

“Henry! We were wondering where the hell you were!”
“Where were you?!”

Henry continued to slam into the building while on top of the motorcycle.

“Fuck, this thing…damn it! Ah, whatever! Seo Ju-Heon! Hand that over or join us!”
“!”
“We will give you all of those Un-knowns. You like artifacts, right? So just shut up and work with us. We will make Un-known for you whenever you want.”
“This bastard……!”
"What's wrong? You'll get a ton of artifacts. You don’t like it?”
“I don’t.”
“Really? Then your sister will be in danger.”

Ju-Heon tilted his head in confusion.

“Why would my sister be in danger?”
“Merlin told me on my way over that he put an evil god artifact on your sister! He asked the two of them to do it!”

Ju-Heon peeked toward the Allenby couple. The couple gulped and avoided his gaze.

Henry continued to speak.

“You understand the situation now? That girl is done for if I send the signal!”

Ju-Heon calmly asked back.

“Is that evil god artifact you are talking about the one that was kind of lower-grade? The Elizabeth Báthory artifact? The woman who tried to gain immortality through the blood of virgins?”
“Huh? How did you……”

Ju-Heon had his hands in his pockets as he walked toward the couple.

“That hasn’t been on my sister for a while now. It’s on an old man I know.”
“What? Wait a minute. Why is that on an old man?!”
“I guess it thought he would have a lot of women since he is a rich old man.”

An anxious Henry continued to speak.

"Okay… Then if you don't want to see that old man getting hurt…”

Ju-Heon then waved something around.

“It’s right here.”
“Huh?”

Ju-Heon smiled brightly at that moment.

“I took it off of him. He paid quite the fee to get it off.”

Holy shit. How do you not remember that until now, Jaeha?
