Now that it was clear that the executive function was meant for the Infinity Library to exploit its rich and influential members, Wyatt did not know how to persuade Zaltan to help him unlock the executive function of the VVIP membership. However, to his surprise, Zaltan made things simpler for him.
'Wyatt, what seems to be the problem here? I already told you I cannot help you bend the rules on this one,' Zaltan asked impatiently.
'I know but is there a way for me to unlock the executive function right away? I don't want to waste a century of my lifetime in different realms reading books just to satisfy a stupid condition set in place to exploit the clients,' Wyatt spoke honestly.
Wyatt could temporarily move to a new realm with a different time zone, where one century was equal to one hour in the card world. This way he can spend more than a century reading books just to get a million reading hours under his VVIP membership and satisfy the condition to unlock the executive function.
However, there were many disadvantages such as obvious psychological issues, and life span issues. Not to mention the density of the soul energy and the ruling power in that particular realm. So Wyatt can forget about cultivating his active soul control percentage in that realm. The only thing that realm was good for was the time difference however considering the disadvantages it was not worth it. Thanks to his gigamite physique age was just a number to Wyatt but spending more than a century just reading books was too much even for him. He could not go through it unless he had no other choice.
'Wyatt, did you not ask Dredre about this before calling me? If you had, then you would know that there is no other way for a VVIP member to unlock the executive function besides satisfying the stated condition, and as I said before, there is nothing I can do to help you satisfy the conditions,' Zaltan was getting tired of repeating himself to Wyatt. It was obvious from his voice. However, for the sake of his experiment, he felt that he had to entertain Wyatt.
Wyatt was not bothered by Zaltan's annoyance with him, rather he was counting on it. As he continued to pester Zaltan with the same thing shamelessly. Zaltan saw him as nothing more than a lucky mortal who was lucky enough to befriend a Pixie, Wyatt did not mind acting the part to get what he wanted. As extreme shamelessness was the only thing that has proven to work against extreme capitalism.
'Zaltan, I understand. All I am asking you is for another way to satisfy the condition since as a low-realm being my lifespan is barely a million hours. I will be long dead before I register a million reading hours under my VVIP membership but I believe I can make a huge contribution to the Infinity Library so please understand where I am coming from and show me a way around this,' Ignoring Zaltan's irritation and annoyance Wyatt continued to ask the same in a different sequence of words.
Wyatt's words were contrary to themselves as he kept asking Zaltan the same thing in different ways again and again expecting a different solution. A foolish approach, yes but he had little room when Zaltan blatantly agreed to the extreme capitalistic practice of the Infinity Library. If they were not ashamed of exploiting people then Wyatt was not ashamed of pestering until he gets what he wants. When a person of Zaltan's standing was not afraid of being called a shameless capitalist why should Wyatt be afraid of being called a shameless poor?
'Wyatt—' annoyed Zaltan wanted to yell that the conditions to unlock the executive function were in place to keep the rif-rafts like him from unlocking the executive function of the infinity library.
However, Zaltan controlled himself midway through unloading the annoyance that he felt towards Wyatt for pestering him to get him concession in unlocking the executive function when he could not have been clearer that he could not do that as the executive function was only for those members whom the library can make use of and not the members who want to make use of the library. Otherwise, the authority that came with being a VVIP member with active executive function would not be that alluring, which was to give the members the authority to represent the Infinity Library in myriad realms and devil merchant code.
'Yes Zaltan, you were saying?' Wyatt asked hearing Zaltan pause midway through their conversation. Wyatt was fully clear of Zaltan's annoyance but he was not worried about the consequence because Zaltan could have hung up the call any time but he did not which meant, even though he was nothing but a pawn in Zaltan's eyes he was not a sacrificial one, Zaltan needed him. Hence, Wyatt was not worried but confident about winning this dance of who was more shameless.
'Wyatt, let us say if I help you with registering a million reading hours under your membership, what about the minimum contribution to the Infinity Library required to unlock the executive function? How confident are you about satisfying that? it is more difficult than it appears,' Zaltan did not agree to help Wyatt with registering a million reading hours under his VVIP membership but he did carefully worded his sentence implying that even if he helped Wyatt with that Wyatt would still not be able to unlock the executive function since Wyatt had yet to complete the minimum contribution a member should make toward Infinity Library to unlock the executive function. listening to Zaltan say this, Wyatt had a wide grin on his face knowing that he was only a few steps away from achieving what he wanted.
Zaltan speaking these words to Wyatt was equal to him trying to persuade Wyatt, which meant that Wyatt's assumptions were correct. Though Zaltan had recruited him as a pawn he was not a sacrificial one as Zaltan still had use for him. This also meant that as long as Wyatt's demands were not absurdly demanding he would not mind fulfilling them to keep him satisfied until he was no longer a use for him. Considering Zaltan's high demands from his pixie experiment hidden from the eyes of the librarian, Zaltan's use of Wyatt as a gloried babysitter would not end anytime soon.
'Don't you worry, Zaltan, I am confident that I can make a minimum contribution to the Infinity Library as its member in no time. The only thing that I am not confident about is registering a million reading hours under my membership,' Wyatt informed Zaltan.
'Wyatt, making the minimum contribution required to unlock the executive function is not a joke, many great devil explorers and conquerors have failed to achieve that despite the bountiful knowledge that they have amassed during their exploits. Don't make light of this condition it is more difficult than you may think, why don't you give up on unlocking the executive function for now and try again when you are in a higher realm?' Zaltan scoffed listening to Wyatt
Zaltan did not believe it when Wyatt said that he could meet the minimum contribution required to unlock the executive function and then proceeded to persuade Wyatt to temporarily give up on trying to unlock the executive function and try again when he was rich and powerful. Making it clear that he would not help Wyatt unlock the executive function regardless of what said or did.
'Zaltan, I am telling you I am confident that I can meet the minimum contribution requirement to unlock the executive function. The only problem is with registering one million reading hours under my membership because of the short life span due to my low realm, so please help with this condition such that I can unlock the executive function of my VVIP membership subscription,' Wyatt continued to demand the same from Zaltan making the same claims despite Zaltan's repeated persuasion and reasoning.
'Oh! Since you keep saying that you are confident that you can meet the minimum contribution requirement to unlock the executive function, how about this? I will help you unlock the executive function of your VVIP membership subscription as long as you meet the minimum contribution requirement to unlock the executive function. What do you say do we have a deal?' in the heat of the moment seeing the opportunity Zaltan proposed a wager.
Zaltan did this because he was pretty confident that someone of Wyatt's caliber would not be able to meet the minimum contribution required to executive function so did not hesitate to make a wager with Wyatt knowing that he would win for sure. Zaltan's annoyance towards Wyatt had grown to the point where he was willing to say or do anything to get Wyatt off his back. But this was better, this way he could put an end to Wyatt's pestering without giving him anything.
