Green Skin will be put on pause. I am releasing the chapters I have in stock, up to 207. When I resume this novel, I intend to have at least 10 monthly releases.
Chapter 206 Mind Control
Despicably proofread by FlawFinder
An ogre suddenly entered the camp, and Lee Jihee was discomfited to see him while she was naked. As Lee Jihee couldn’t distinguish each one, she was always surprised to see Lee Wanyong greet him by name.
“It has been a long time, Hajaku.”
“I am sorry to have not visited you. Is that your woman?”
“Jihee, greet him.”
“Oh, yes! Hello.”
“I think I have gone foraging with her once.”
Lee Jihee bowed low as an elite ogre warrior under Gark, and Hark was of high authority in the clan. The ogre looked at Lee Jihee coldly, and Hajaku opened his mouth.
“You are not greedy, Wanyong. There are many beautiful Green Skins after you, and I do not think she will bear you a healthy child.”
Lee Jihee swallowed a curse, as she had been deemed as beautiful as a model back on earth. However, she knew she was not a beauty by Green Skin standards except for by the clan leader’s standards. It annoyed her still to be spoken to like that in person.
“I… it’s not my place, and I fear that Blood Dagger may be angry.”
“He is not angry over such matters. Agiona, the elite ogre warrior, wants to meet you. Since she likes someone smart and weak, you have a chance with her.”
Lee Jihee sighed inwardly at having to fend off female Green Skins now.
“I am too inferior.”
“You evaluate yourself too low.”
Lee Wanyong was saying that because he was afraid of Agiona. Lee Jihee sighed this time in relief, as there had been a chance he would accept the offer.
“What brings you here? How about a drink? Jihee, go prepare something.”
“Yes, right now.”
Jihee had been about to go when Hajaku spoke again.
“No, I have a mock battle with the trainees. I have only come here because Blood Dagger has asked me to deliver something to you.”
“I want a drink with you, but it seems that the clan will become busier.”
Hajaku handed over piles of documents to Lee Wanyong. The man’s eyes burned as they were necessary for him to succeed as a clan member. The sheer volume of the sealed documents made Lee Jihee cringe even as Lee Wanyong thanked Hajaku.
Hajaku now greeted Lee Wanyong with a hand over his chest, which was a sign of respect. Some of the Green Skins close to Lee Wanyong were showing him such greetings nowadays, and it made Lee Jihee smile to see Lee Wanyong greet back.
“Then, I will leave you. Do your best for the clan.”
“Of course, sir. I also wish you luck.”
Lee Jihee mumbled after Hajaku left the tent.
“Isn’t it inconvenient that he comes so suddenly into your tent?”
“That’s a sign of trust and friendship for Green Skins.”
She remembered that only true brothers are allowed to go about each other’s tents freely. Lee Jihee looked at Lee Wanyong in surprise at having built a network. It would not be out of place to think that powerful Green Skins regarded him as a useful human. Green Skins did not discriminate if humans had abilities.
Lee Jihee now saw him open the documents and thought he worked hard as she had heard rumors of Lee Wanyong participating in Baek Ahyeon’s sermons. She now focused solely on her work, as they promised not to see his work until Lee Wanyong spoke of it first.
She now saw him focus and thought such a face would be attractive to anyone. He was toying with his golden pen, which was made of solid gold from the mines. The surprising thing was that he had covered it with cheap leather, to be careful. Lee Wanyong spoke up after Lee Jihee began to drowse.
“Do you want an assignment?”
While Jihee had been assigned some work before, this was the first time Lee Wanyong had given his work from Blood Dagger.
“It’s an assignment to help create mind control spells, and you would need to work with Japanese magicians. It will be useful in the future.”
“You can’t buy it from the shop, then.”
Lee Jihee nodded, as it was a chance that would go to other people if she refused.
“However, mind control is scary. It’s not going to be used on us, right?”
“Don’t worry. The ingredients are too rare to be used on us…probably…”
“You will know later.”
Lee Jihee knew he would not speak and just focused on the assignment. The Blood Dagger Clan always rewarded results, and she would gain something decent for this.
“It’s not dangerous?”
“Don’t worry. You will move with Orbo. Prepare now and go see Hakajin.”
She took her luggage and went out. The names Orbo and Hakajin meant this was really important. Lee Jihee could not make a mistake, as the worst-case scenario was that she would be thrown out. However, this was a chance valuable enough to take risks. Lee Jihee looked back to see Lee Wanyong still working, and she had to acknowledge that he was competent as she went out.
Things were going well. While Park Hyeri was silent, the magician using explosion magic had given us much. I managed to narrow down the Spider Clan Master’s position and had asked for Jang Ye Ri’s help on how to hold down someone who had teleport skills. I was even surer by now that the Spider Clan Master was important to Park Hyeri.
Also, placing the Maser under mind control would reinforce the clan. She would be an invaluable asset as the only teleport user in this land.
I now waited for my guest in my tent. Baek Ahyeon was someone who could control minds, as she had been able to use people as bombs. Her followers still served her to an eerie degree, and Elisha looked tense as she waited with me.
Baek Ahyeon had come in elegantly, and she was wearing a sheer dress like she had expected a private call. Her red lips were sensual, but they frowned on seeing Elisha. She realized that it was business.
“Have you called? My savior?”
Baek Ahyeon glared at Elisha and then looked at me with respectful eyes.
“Who is she?”
“You will work with her for now.”
She was like Jung Hayeon as she looked at Elisha’s face.
“Hello, I am Elisha, the third princess of the Eveluse Kingdom.”
“I am Baek Ahyeon, the first disciple of the Great Savior.”
Baek Ahyeon then asked why I had brought her here. I knew she thought Laveua was a divine child and was anxious to have one of her own. While I was being careful, it was also difficult for a demon and a human to have a child. Jang Ye Ri had been an exception.
“I needed to ask you something.”
I hesitated to ask her about mind control outright, but her devoted gaze made me open my mouth.
“How does your propagation work?”
Baek Ahyeon’s face brightened, as this was the first time I had taken an interest in her followers.
