Chapter 205 Alliance Proposal (3)
Jung Hayeon was looking at me after the negotiations ended so easily. This elf would help us as much as she can for her people and family. While it would be an easy fight, I was anticipating its scale. I nodded to Jung Hayeon as Gark placed his hand on his chest.
“You did well.”
“No, I thank you for letting me lead this.”
I gave Gark a complimenting look, and he looked more confident. It seemed he had gained confidence. I slowly stared at the elf princess crying on the ground. We had got her word, and Jung Hayeon would send her a contract to sign. While she may regret her decision, she had no choice.
I spoke to Elisha, who was trying to keep her tears back.
“So, what can you do?”
I knew that she was good at mental magic, but Elisha only closed her eyes as she spoke.
“I do not have any experience, but if you teach me…”
I was surprised at what she said.
“That will not happen.”
Her face flushed as she realized what she had said.
“I want to know about your magic and other things.”
“Ah, yes. I can use basic magic like that translation one. While my mental spells are making one’s mind comfortable, it may be applicable…”
“Our magicians cannot use translation magic. Can you use attack magic?”
“I can use basic element magic, but I am not strong enough to attack well.”
“How about your mother?”
“She is different…”
It seemed one could learn to be stronger, and one of the two reasons I asked this was Laveua’s early education. I thought she would make a better magician than an archer. While Jung Hayeon was a good teacher, she was too focused on plant magic. Elisha would make a good teacher, and the other reason was this.
“Can you use mind control?”
I would not control this woman or my clan members, and my only goal was the Spider Clan master. My revenge against Park Hyeri was not over, and I wanted to see her reaction. I thought she would have some knowledge as she had been able to block the magic.
Elisha spoke slowly.
“I know it in theory…”
“Can you do it against me?”
Elisha surrendered after I showed her my magic. Since I knew the Spider Clan Master was about the same as me, it would be impossible.
“You can take time.”
“I can tell you in advance that mental magic is suggestion. If I can suggest repeatedly, and the object’s mentality is not normal, or I can go deep. There’s a special ingredient made by humans, and that drug may increase the probability. If it fails, the object may become an idiot at the least…”
“It doesn’t matter.”
The Japanese could make drugs, and it seemed a chance I could take. However, the elf did not seem like she wanted to do the same thing the humans that had betrayed her race had done. I smiled.
“You can go out if you do not want to do it, but I will not be responsible for the results.”
“I, I understand.”
I grabbed Elisha’s wrist, and her ears continued to tremble.
“The choice is yours.”
I thought my voice would sound like the devil’s, and I could sense her despair and sadness spread. I smiled as she bowed her head lower.
“Why are you calling me?”
Lee Jihee was one of the alchemists kidnapped here, and she had majored in chemistry on Earth. While she had chosen to become an alchemist, she regretted her choice. Manufacturers were like slaves in a world where the battle was an everyday routine. While blacksmiths were treated better and the senior alchemists who could make high potions could spend their later years in peace, it was a different story for Lee Jihee.
Her being kidnapped to the monster’s land had actually made her life better, although she thought she would die on the first day. Human children played here, and it was like a human village. The work was much easier, and she was treated better. She got her necessities for free and received compensation for her work, and could rest more.
She became better at her work, as the goblins brought rare herbs from dangerous places. While she could not go outside, she had not been free in her city, as she had no money to have fun. Here, it was free. She was allowed to have relationships with other humans, and she had one with Lee Wanyong.
It was fun to see him pretend to look at her with disinterest, and she pressed her lips against his like she wanted to do this. Lee Wanyong slowly warmed up, and now they were resting comfortably in the bed.
“Why are you doing so much work?”
“It’s a secret you shouldn’t know.”
“You’re not meeting other women like last time, right?”
Lee Wanyong was known to be a man with talents, as he was close to the leader of this clan for unknown reasons. She had to fight with other women and had let him have some affairs in the past. He would not have been a choice if she had been on Earth, but she was in the land.
“Do you need to do something for the…clan leader?”
“Yes, I’m going to be busier, and we won’t have time to meet.”
“That’s a shame.”
Lee Jihee barely managed to remember that calling Blood Dagger a monster was taboo to Lee Wanyong. There had been a woman before Lee Jihee, and Lee Wanyong had become livid when she had called Blood Dagger a monster. However, even if he acted like he was deeply devoted, she knew Lee Wanyong was taking in benefits behind Blood Dagger’s back.
It was interesting to see Lee Wanyong take in small benefits and never be extra greedy. He would eat more meat, spend time with other ogres, or have slightly better things in his tent.
She was most surprised to see him bask flattery onto Kim Yoora and Laveua, who would hold power in the future. He was amazingly fluent in the Green Skin language, which made Lee Jihee trust him more. He would survive, which made him an asset for her own survival. While he may throw her out when things got dangerous, it was better to stick with him.
Lee Jihee went to the kitchen after a nod and gave her hips a shake. She felt Lee Wanyong watch her without fail, which made her smile. It was then someone called Lee Wanyong’s name.
