After finishing the conversation with the Duke, Johann left. That evening was very quiet.
Soon, the silence was gone due to a certain girl’s footstep.
When Johann turned around, Leblaine grab his shirt.
Johann asked when he saw Leblaine following him.
“I can hear you following me.”
“That’s not true!”
“……actually, you’re right.”
Leblaine was sullen.
“I never meant to bother you. I was just wondering if I could get some of what you have, if you’re okay with it.”
She said with a quiet voice.
‘What is her purpose?’
If that child wants anything, father will give her everything. In addition, there was Henry and Isaac. She doesn’t have to come herself to get things.
While he was contemplating, Leblaine was glancing at him.
At this point, he was purely curious.
What the hell does she want?
“Nail or hair.”
He looks so confused.
Nail or hair……
If anyone hears it, they’ll think I was about to put a curse on him.
But I really need them. Because that was the medium to get some of Johann’s mana.
Pymon, of all things, still uses the old-fashioned way of using magic!
I showed Dad, Henry, and Isaac’s hair to Pymon. But it couldn’t be them because Johann’s power is the purest.
“Why my hair or nails? Are you going to curse me?”
“That’s not it. You’re going to the academy soon, aren’t you? Since you’ve been attacked so many times, how about I make a protection spell so that it doesn’t happen this time?”
I blabber the excuse I had prepared in advance. I couldn’t really say it earlier because I was very nervous.
“I can make it if I have your nails or hair!”
It’s a myth, but it doesn’t matter.
‘I’m only a child, so I can do something like this.’
Johann didn’t say anything.
Suddenly, I could hear Isaac’s voice from behind me.
He came running quickly, grabbed my hand and frowned. Henry also did what Isaac did.
“Why is the kid with you? Did you bully her again?”
“You don’t need to keep your eyes on her.”
When Henry and Isaac spoke, Johann’s eyebrows went up.
I was flustered and pulled both of their sleeves together.
“No. He never bothered me. I came to him myself!”
“Kid, why did you do it?”
“You don’t have to worry about him, Leblaine.”
I mean, that’s not it.
I was about to say something when Johann turned around. Without saying anything, he moved away from us.
I stamped my foot.
“That’s not it! I came after Johann myself!”
Isaac asked and Henry didn’t say anything.
Henry gently grabbed me by the shoulder and he lowered himself to reach my eyes.
“I told you. He’s a dangerous person, so never be alone with him.”
I sulked and looked at them.
“Johann doesn’t look like a bad person.”
“Kid, my brother is very heartless—!”
“When I went to the play with my maids last year, everyone cried because they were sad, but I didn’t cry. So am I a bad guy?”
Isaac panicked and shouted,
“You didn’t have to look at the documents today, did you? That’s why you have time to read books.”
“You didn’t have to train the knights, did you? So you wanted to eat snacks with me.”
“Johann did your job for you guys.”
I shook off Henry and Isaac’s hands.
When I came back to my room, I saw a long-haired gir……no, a guy who ate cookies on my bed.
“I couldn’t taste anything.”
“But why did you eat all of it?”
“Well, it’s free. And I’m bored.”
There are some restrictions that the devils have. One, he can’t get more than a kilometer away from me, people can also see the devil if I’m not in good condition.
‘I have to hurry and send him back before I go to the capital.’
I thought so and picked up the envelope I kept under my bed. It was a letter to Seria.
[After Adolf, one of the 21 priests, was executed, the church didn’t do any extreme moves. They’ve been searching for a way to bring back their honor that has fallen. Etwal, an important symbol of the church is displayed for days…]
‘I’ve never seen the Etwal on display in my past lives.’
It was urgent enough to bring out the sacred objects in myths to win over the disappointed believers.
I checked the Etwal picture of the church sent by Seria.
I frowned in surprise.
“What’s going on?”
Pymon came near me and checked the picture.
“Do you know it?”
Having mastered all kinds of studies, did he also learn theology? I nodded and said.
“That’s right. It’s Etwal, but it’s a little different from what I know.”
“Etwal, which was originally stored in the church had jewels embedded in every corner of the but it’s not here.”
I saw it clearly.
When Mina had the church’s etwal, I could see the jewels in every etwal’s corner.
I took out my Etwal necklace and showed it to Pymon.
‘There’s no jewels in it like mine.’
Pymon sat across me and put his hand on his chin.
“It’s no wonder, there’s no power so no jewels.”
“What does that mean?”
“Etwal is originally a sacred object for keeping power. It’s like a warehouse, for example.”
I opened my eyes widely.
“Is it something to store magic or divine power?”
“I mean a real soul. Even a devil’s power and you have the authority over them.”
Pymon pointed to a small groove in every corner of the hexagonal etwal.
“You keep the power in here. So you can take it out whenever you need it.”
I opened my eyes widely at the remark.
There are six grooves in total. Does that mean I can have six powers?
“Wait, so that means I can store devils power too?!”
“Of course, but beings like us cannot be stored without our consent.”
“Is that so?”
“But, the owner wouldn’t be able to keep us. Aren’t you running out of divine power to borrow our powers?”
“Then what does it usually contain?”
“Human souls. However, this is not something that a human being can do. There is no choice but to obtain souls by a higher existence like the devil.”
I frowned and looked at Pymon.
“Is it possible that I can continue to call out the devils to complete the etwal?”
Pymon’s lip corners went up.
[I can answer questions only after you are qualified.]
That’s why Boone said I’m not qualified without Etwal.
I rolled up my sleeves.
‘Mina also completed the etwal.’
And Mina, who completed the etwal, became a powerful person that even the pope could not easily offend.
If I complete the etwal before Mina…
‘I can be the strongest person in the continent and make Dubbled an independent family.’
My heart trembles.
Pymon looked at me and coughed loudly.
If I complete the etwal before Mina…
For some reason, Pymon became a little gloomy.
‘I’m envious of Pymon’s abilities, but it’s hard to maintain him.’
I only have six chances. I must create a power source that will benefit me.
I immediately contacted Seria.
[Yes, little miss.]
“Gather information on who’s selling special gems and minerals here. Also buy it as much as you can.”
[Some people may offer a price that you can’t imagine for special gems and minerals.]
“It doesn’t matter.”
I still have the top of hope to generate me a lot of money.
“I made a lot of money these days anyway.”
That night, I sneaked into Johann’s room.
It seems like Johann hadn’t come back from training, the room was very quiet.
‘I’m going to pick up his hair before he comes back.’
It would not be as much as Pymon wanted, but there was no other way.
[I think I’ll end up going back after a year.]
Pymon was being sarcastic again.
I carefully opened the bedroom door, and slowly crept into his bed.
There was someone on a sofa near the bed.
I was so surprised that I didn’t move at all.
But it’s weird.
The body looks like a human, but why was there no response?
‘Pymon, if anything happens to me, attack it right away.’
I carefully headed to the sofa.
It was Johann lying down on the sofa with a pale face. It is serious if Johann, who is usually quick to notice any presence, didn’t do anything even after I came in.
“Get a hold of yourself! Oh my god, doctor!”
Johann grabbed my wrist just when I was about to rush out.
“Lou……loud. This poison……can be purified in a week.”
“I am the eldest son……of Dubbled. If my body gets damaged……the enemies will move.”
That must be it.
The reason why the vassals didn’t have different opinions was because Johann’s very capable and handle everything himself.
I took a closer look at Johann’s condition.
Since I have been trained in the church for two lives, I could recognize diseases.
It is a poison used frequently by mercenaries.
“When they attacked at the border, you were struck by poison right? So you came to rest at the Dubbled on the pretext of running away.”
“Have you been holding it?”
“Don’t bother me……”
I shouted at him.
Oh my god, what a fool!
Everyone else was saying that he was inhuman and valued nothing, even his brothers didn’t know what he was like, he carried a lot of baggage by himself.
I was so upset with Johann that my eyes kept getting blurry.
When I saw him, Johann was looking at me very gently.
