Chapter 37 – The Appearance of The Accomplice (2)
Translator: SKAIS Editor: SKAIS
“As I looked at you, I see that you’re quite curious, and I know you’ve noticed the condition of the prisoner, haven’t you?”
“You’re not wrong. But are you saying you’ve seen more than enough?”
“Of course. Escaping is my hobby.”
Yeah right. That’s his forte.
What an enviable hobby. If I were a felon, I would have done it, escaping from this forlorn place. Give me some tips on how to escape, mister.
“What do you want from me?”
“I’m sure you didn’t come here to see me just to say something and use me as a protection.” The green eyes which seemed to stare at me, bent down. He whistled for a moment and then suddenly froze.
I, on the other hand, felt the burden of those shiny eyes.
“I was hoping you’d help me satisfy my magical curiosity”
“Yes, I am a sorcerer who can awaken him, the prisoner under the beast’s curse. I’ve been studying for a long time, and my hands are itchy as they are dying to awaken him already.”
I pretended to be curious, to see the real intentions of Jair. So he’s going to cast a spell on him through me? That’s it, huh? But why? Why are they taking risks now?
Will that make Ricdorian’s prison life more comfortable?
“There’s no reason for me to listen anymore.”
“Oh, if you turn back and won’t help me satisfy my magical curiosity, I won’t hurt you…for now.”
“Are you threatening me?” I asked him with narrow eyes, not feeling any fear..
I scoffed in disbelief and Jair’s eyes have become as thin as a twine.
“It’s a joke. I’ll help you with anything anytime. You know that having a sorcerer’s help is a rare opportunity.” I said.
It certainly wasn’t a bad deal. But the opportunity to use the sorcery skills of Jair was not beneficial for me. There’s no reason for me to use a supporting role.
If I get out of prison, I’ll go somewhere that doesn’t have anything to do with the original plot, eat well and enjoy my life. And also forget everything!
I was about to look away but later turned my gaze back at him as he said something that caught my attention.
“Maybe the prisoner could use a spoon when eating instead of lying on his stomach and picking up everything from the ground. It sounds like a joke, but it won’t be a bad thing for the prisoner either.”
Now that’s the suggestion I like. It’s a better bait than what he said earlier. He should be more straightforward rather than acting as if he was being kind. Moreover, I was also tired of picking up cookies.
“Will it be difficult?”
“Not at all. All you have to do is hand this over.”
That’s what Jair said, as he raised his one hand. He also explained that he would cast a spell on my hand, so I only need to approach Ricdorian and memorize the incantations.
“This is my magic and it will be activated as soon as I say so.”
The magic he created is a temporary magic that only Ricdorian can hear. Based on his fixed plan and sequential explanation, an intentional approach is the most effective way.
“You’re very prepared, aren’t you?”
“Yes, I’ve already made it before, and I’ve been thinking about persuading you. I am smart and I always think in advance.” He then winked at me.
Aside from that, I shook my head as I was trying to answer why he was even in this prison.
Why not? He’s from the Hel estate’s side.
The prisoners inside Kambrakam were mixed. Some were on Archduke Harnim’s side but the prison head was on the Chaser’s side.
However, realizing that Jair was inside Kambrakam, this just proves that no matter how much the Archduke has forsaken Ricdorian, still he didn’t just leave him alone. He has eyes inside this prison.
I was about to say yes and reach out my hand when suddenly, he spoke.
“But what can I do? You have to do this at night.”…What?!
“This magic is influenced by the moon’s power.”
Jair’s hand held my wrist indiscreetly. And not long after, a faint light glistened around his hand.
“Hey, what are you talking about? Do you think I can get out of my cell at night?”
“That’s why I’m trying to help you.”
When Jair pulled something off, a bracelet appeared on my wrist.
It was a green strap bracelet that had a similar color with his eyes and a translucent jewel twinkled in the center.
“You can use this.” Jair whispered and a blue light rose on the back of my hand appeared.
As the light disappeared, a stick pattern was drawn on my wrist. Is this a magic symbol?
He grinned. Afterwards, he stepped back a little and clapped.
“With that magic, you’ll be fine. But…he may suffer from side effects.”
Side effects? I stared at him in a worry but Jair quickly shook his head.
“It’s not a big deal. Maybe just a sudden growth? I’ll be back soon.”
Jair snapped his hand and whispered that he had already unfurled the magic. Then he quickly turned his back.
Being together for a long time is not good for the both of us.
I narrowed my eyes and looked alternately at the blue rose pattern at the back of my hand and the green bracelet on my wrist…..this isn’t a big deal, right?

I stood up from my bed and tied my hair. I stuck my curly hair with a pin which made a loud noise, making my eyes open wide.
“Haaaaah…” I sighed in relief.
I need to be careful not to make any noises, especially that I am already heavy-eyed.
It may be due to what happened earlier that I haven’t slept all throughout but the main reason is that if I sleep, I might not even wake up at this time.
“I almost fell asleep.”
