Regressor Takes Everything - Chapter 88
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
Kang Yoo-sik who had an unexpected meeting with the three moved to a corner of the Central Hall and exchanged greetings again.
“This is Cha Si-hyun, a member of our club.”
“I’m Cha Si-hyun. I look forward to working with you.”
Heinz and Tao Fei looked dazed at Cha Si-hyun who gave a polite bow.
“Indeed. You’re quite an excellent cadet.”
“It’s rare to find such a level even in the Cheonmu palace……..”
Kang Yoo-sik gave a satisfied smile at the two who looked amazed and questioned.
“Looks like we’re meeting after a few months. Have you been doing well?”
“I’m just doing well. Since there hasn’t been any special thing happening other than the fact that I renovated the warehouse.”
Heinz gave a slight smile and looked at Kang Yoo-sik’s right arm. He looked at the Airgetlám within and questioned him.
“Are you making good use of the item I gifted to you?”
“Of course. I feel grateful to you every time I use it.”
“Haha. There’s no need to be thankful. I just kept my ‘promise’. Isn’t it quite an ‘obvious’ thing?”
At Heinz’s emphasis, Tao Fei cringed from beside and muttered in a sunken voice.
“I-, I tried to keep it too…….”
“Did I say anything? I just stated the ‘obvious’ and you’re the one giving a feisty reaction for no reason. Is there something bothering you?”
Tao Fei who couldn’t reply to that just turned his head away again. Kang Yoo-sik wondered at the sight of him feeling bad.
‘I thought it’d be like the thief turning on the master with a club……. But this is out of my expectation.’
Kang Yoo-sik figured that that reason he didn’t hand over the item to him was to trick him into going to the Cheonmu Palace.
Due to that, Kang Yoo-sik thought that Tao Fei might nonchalantly just ask him to come to the Cheonmu Palace when they meet. But unlike his expectation, he couldn’t meet eyes with him properly.
‘Though Tao Fei looks a little like a snake, he can’t be a person who can pretend to that extent……… It means that there really is some other reason to do so.
That was because he had shown his utterly worst state to us, especially to me Kang Yoo-sik and Ban Hye-young, otherwise, Tao Fei is a person of influence holding that much power to be recognized by the entire world.
Anyone who wants to pressurize someone like Tao Fei in China should give it a try. Lord of the Cheonmu Palace, President of China and even………
‘Ah, maybe not that monster.’
Though he is disgustingly powerful, he’s not a person active enough to get involved in such things. There’s no way that the President can get into such things, so, eventually, there’s only one person left.
‘Is it the Lord of Cheonmu Palace?’
For some unknown reason, the Lord of Cheonmu Palace is dissuading Tao Fei from sending the item he promised to send.
He wasn’t sure if the focus was on the item or on Kang Yoo-sik who will be receiving it, but it was certain that something was suspicious.
When Kang Yoo-sik was lost in thoughts wondering what it could be.
Wilhelmina who had been silent ever since they met tugged his sleeve and started speaking with a shy face.
“Lo-, Long time no see. Oppa.”
Kang Yoo-sik looked blank at the unexpected appellation. Wilhelmina lowered her head and clasped his arm.
She was close before they broke up, but now she looked like a few steps ahead since then. When Kang Yoo-sik was looking flustered at that, Heinz gave a smile.
“I hope you understand. You have no idea how much she whined about missing you after you left. I feel exhausted trying to console her.”
“Is that so?”
Heinz broke into a laugh and gave a smile at Wilhelmina who turned red at his words.
“I hope you can spare your arm at least until the auction.”
“Of course, I can do that.”
When Kang Yoo-sik was smiling at the sight of Wilhelmina who was shyly holding onto his arm. Tao Fei who was waiting for the right time opened his mouth to talk.
“Anyways, what did you come to buy here?”
“Ah, I don’t have anything exact. I just came to look around once.”
“Well, I heard that the items this time are all unpleasant ones. This time, I’m here for a conference.”
Looking at how they were into a discussion as if they came on a stride, Kang Yoo-sik gave an odd look.
“If that’s the case, then what were you two arguing about a while ago?”
“That was because I had to buy what that guy is trying to buy.”
“It was so because I wanted to buy what that bastard wanted to buy.”
Kang Yoo-sik gave a ridiculed expression at the two who either trust each other, or just want to win against each other and questioned.
“You mentioned that the items this time are quite unpleasant…….. So, does that mean you two know what are the items that will be up today?”
“I mean, that’s because we’re regulars. Though it’s usually a secret, we do hear some things roughly.”
“Which means we know it all.”
“If so, by any chance, may I know what will be up there today?”
Though he knew that the Loss of Resentment will be in the malicious inventory, he didn’t know if it might as well be up today.
At that, Heinz and Tao Fei exchanged looks and laughed.
“Usually it’s fun to see and buy the item while not knowing about anything.”
“Yes, of course. Usually, you should just enjoy on the first day of visit.”
When Kang Yoo-sik was giving a disturbing look at the two who were talking in unison. Tao Fei examined the look on his face and said.
“But still….. Since you have to avoid the landmines. I’ll let you know just that.”
“Right. Some might look shiny from the outside but are of no use. Especially, since there are two items from the malicious inventory, you must avoid them at all costs. You might suffer with them.”
Kang Yoo-sik gave a strange expression hearing that there were two items from the malicious inventory. Since it was just the Loss of Resentment as far as he remembers.
‘What’s the other one?’
When Kang Yoo-sik was caught in his questions. Tao Fei lowered his voice and whispered.
“What you need to avoid the most is the ‘Loss of Resentment’. And the other one is the Tyrfing.”
Kang Yoo-sik’s eyes widened at Tao Fei’s words and he questioned again.
“By……. any chance, you mean the Magic Sword Tyrfing?”
“Huh? What, you knew already? I don’t even have to explain I guess.”
At Tao Fei’s dull look, Kang Yoo-sik muttered the words that were almost close to being uttered.
‘How could I not know that.’
The Magic Sword Tyrfing.
It’s the demonic magic sword that has killed many including its owners and is a deformed weapon that has developed from AA-class to S-class.
And later, it became the main weapon of an enemy knight from an elite group of mines (demons) called The Four Horsemen. It was the demonic magic sword that helped him with the slaughtering of countless hunters.
That ferocious and unstoppable item was up in this auction.
He tried to get out only with the Loss of Resentment, but he couldn’t ignore such a thing being there.
Kang Yoo-sik flashed his eyes and gave a smile.
“I’ll keep that in mind.”
The doors to the auction room opened with the nearing of the scheduled time and people started to fill into the place that had a fancy structure as of an opera theatre.
Since there were designated seats already, everyone took their seats accordingly, while the host Michael who watched the scene from backstage looked through the list of participants.
“Hmm……. There are only two first-time visitors this time huh?”
“Yes. They’re Koreans called Kang Yoo-sik and Cha Si-hyun and among them, Kang Yoo-sik is the cadet who’s the most popular nowadays.”
“Ah, Kang Yoo-sik. I’ve heard of that name before.”
Michael who examines the list of participants again was in deep thought for a moment and questioned the staff.
“Kang Yoo-sik that cadet, he was affiliated with magic, right?”
“Sorry? Yes…… That’s right “
“Hmm……. So, you say so….”
Michael raised a corner of his lips and looked at the staff.
“The Loss of Resentment and Tyrfing. Put them both up too.”
“What? They’re not going to sell anyway, putting them up in the front is g-……”
“It might even sell you know.”
The staff widened his eyes looking at Michael who was smiling and gave a worried look.
“W-, Would that be okay? I heard that the cadet has connections with many big figures………”
“It’s not even a forced sale, there’s nothing to worry about. I’ll be giving it at a price lower than the original price, so it won’t be a bad deal too, right? Of course, it’s not.”
Though the other items at the auction will be sold at the price given by the owners, The Loss of Resentment and Tyrfing both are handled by the host Michael.
He means that if he wanted to pass it over to someone, he asks them to pay as much as they want for it!
“Okay. Let’s get started.”
Michael headed to the podium and all the surrounding lights dimmed, hitting the spotlight on him.
Michael faced that familiar spotlight, grabbed the mic, and started.
“We sincerely thank our guests who’ve come to High Coast once again. Let me provide you an introduction to the items that will be up today!”
Following a signal from Michael, the items up for the suction were displayed one by one along with their names, and the participants gave a strange look at the scene.
That was because usually the Loss of Resentment and the Tyrfing that comes and passes by at the very first is now kept for the second half.
‘Isn’t this the sucker item?’
‘The person who’d be a target to this…. perhaps Kang Yoo-sik? No way.’
Kang Yoo-sik who was seated at the 28th VIP seat grasped the situation and gave a side-eye at it while Heinz and Tao Fei who were seated farther from them looked utter ridicule.
Usually, this kind of trick happens when there are first-time visitors, but who knew they’d try to pass it over to Kang Yoo-sik.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
‘But then, I don’t think there will be any problem.’
‘I informed him already, so there’s no way he’s going to buy it, right?’
The two of them gave a relaxed expression thinking that it was good that they warned him earlier while Kang Yoo-sik was seated in a carefree position knowing or not knowing the eyes on him.
“Okay, so let’s start the auction now.”
Michael introduced the items and conducted the auction as usual. The items in the first half were bid comparatively faster too.
That was because the items that came first in order were originally less valuable, so the owners were appointed quickly on them.
‘He’s not raised his number even once huh.’
Looking at how carefree Kang Yoo-sik looked, anyone could say he was a first-timer who was only here to look around. But instead of getting nervous about it, Michael gave a smile.
That was because he was an expert in ripping off first-timers like him.
‘Shall we get started now?’
The auction reached the second half before they knew it and Michael wet his lips and started.
“We’re already in the second half. The ones who know may know it already, that starting now, the beauties and demons of the auction will be up.”
The participants laughed at the grandiose introduction and Michael ignored the reaction and continued.
“So, here’s the first item that will switch the ambiance. Let me introduce you to the Loss of Resentment.”
The stage lights moved colorfully at Michael’s signal and everyone’s eyes were on the case that the staff dragged to the stage.
Inside the translucent case was a sphere floating in the air with dark energy scattering around it.
Unlike the name, the Loss of Resentment glowed like a gemstone, and everyone who looked at it distorted their eyes.
That was because The Loss of Resentment had a specialty to cause displeasure to the person looking at it.
“If I had to talk about this item, Firstly, this is an item of AA-class which has powerful mana in it. It is an item of mystery that has not been discovered even after investigations by outstanding magicians.”
It was an item you can’t help but get interested in after Michael’s explanation. But in reality, people’s faces were halfway different.
Though it was of AA-class, the reason for it was the awful curse within it. Even the magicians who made an investigation on it were cursed by it, making them give up on the research and sold it back at a bargain price.
It wasn’t in the malicious inventory for years in the auction for no reason!
“Loss of Resentment. Bidding starts at 10 million dollars!”
The AA-class item was 10 million dollars. It was 11.8 billion won in Korean currency. Comparing to the price of 15 million dollars from last time, this is way cheaper, but the participants who knew what kind of item it was just turned their heads.
And Michael gave a sneaky look towards Kang Yoo-sik, assuming that he doesn’t know about it.
‘Would he buy it?’
‘He might even fall for it at this point……’
Heinz and Tao Pei looked at the participants’ eyes filled with anticipation chuckled at the sight.
‘What a waste of time.’
‘We’ve already told him about it, what a waste here.’
Right when the two of them were looking so relaxed.
Kang Yoo-sik raised his number brightly and cast a bid.
Heinz and Tao Fei both gave a surprised look at that while Michael announced with a big smile.
“10 million! Anyone else?!”
Obviously, there won’t be any bidders for it. Michael hurriedly auctioned it off, in case he changed his mind.
“Loss of Resentment. Has been auctioned off to guest No.28!”
Michael who realized that he found a right pushover brought in the next item right away.
A black long sword was placed on a cushion. It looked rough as if it was made from rock, and looked normal with red energy flowing around it.
“The Great Magic Sword Tyrfing that was passed on by numerous prosecutors! This is true, an AA-class weapon that can leave a curse on the opponent. It has been of great use not only to prosecutors but magicians too.”
Though it’s a weapon, the fact that it was passed onto many people made it unpleasant. Not just that, though it wasn’t confirmed, there was also a risk that the curse of the sword was cast on the owner.
It was an item you wouldn’t buy unless you’re insane, thus, Michael conscientiously gave it a price.
“The Magic Sword Tyrfing. Bidding starts at 100 million dollars!”
100 million dollars. It was 118 billion won in Korean currency. Though it was half-priced, compared to the price of 200 million dollars last year, the participants who knew about the situation turned their heads again.
Kang Yoo-sik raised his number again.
“What the f-……!”
Heinz and Tao Fei yelled out in embarrassment at that, but Michael cast soundproofing magic inside the facility at the disturbance and announced aloud.
“100 million! Anyone else?”
Again, obviously, there wasn’t anyone. Michael announced with a big smile.
“The Magic Sword Tyrfing. Auctioned off to guest No.28 for 100 million dollars!!!”
The malicious inventory items didn’t leave High Coast for years. Michael who sold off the items he was sick and tired of, let out an internal scream and looked at Kang Yoo-sik.
‘Thank you, pushover!’
And Kang Yoo-sik who grab hold of the future S-class item and an AA-class item returned the smile to Michael.
‘I’ll use it well.’
After the auction was over.
Kang Yoo-sik who returned to the room with his items after calming down Heinz and Tao Fei who was terrified, meticulously pulled his things out.
A shock absorption just in case. Kang Yoo-sik finished all the preparations and brought the two bags he got from the High Coast.
After selling it, maybe they needed to hide that it was an ominous item, the entire bag was sealed tight.
Kang Yoo-sik smiled looking at how meticulous they’ve been with the packing of an item that’s worth millions.
‘I need to make use of these later too.’
Kang Yoo-sik who carefully took off the packing started to open the package with the Loss of Resentment first.
Loss of Resentment that was radiating dark energy. Kang Yoo-sik questioned Percival with confidence.
‘Percival. The ideologue of this?!’
– There’s none. Lord.
Kang Yoo-sik gave an embarrassed look at the answer that came in like a knife and looked down at Percival.
– Yes. It’s indeed, the Loss of Resentment, but there’s nothing to call an ideologue of it. I think it’s not compatible.
– Yes. Not even now.
Kang Yoo-sik looked at the Loss of Resentment with a dull expression at the answer as firm as a fiddle.
It feels nice to have the chills with it like this, but there’s no ideologue. He realized how special Andvaranaut was in that case.
‘Then, do I have to use this as an explosive or what……?’
The overall performance wasn’t bad, but he couldn’t help but feel regretful about it. When Kang Yoo-sik was sulking over it.
– Lord. I’m saying this with all due respect…. It looks better to give it to that lady who was with you before.
– Yes. That’s right.
Kang Yoo-sik gave a strange expression at that.
That was because he didn’t feel any correlation between the Loss of Resentment and Cha Si-hyun.
But still, since he had seen where he had got with Percival’s computational skills, Kang Yoo-sik nodded right away.
‘Okay. I’ll try talking to her about it later.’
– Thank You. Lord.
Kang Yoo-sik closed the box with the Loss of Resentment again and took off the packing on the box with the Tyrfing.
A chill in a different dimension from that of The Loss of Resentment. Kang Yoo-sik stared down at the Tyrfing at the feeling of it being cursed to what it amounts to.
‘I need to put a lot of effort into this to make use of it well……’
Though it was huge merit to even be knowing the method to do it, he had a little bit of a sad feeling, since it was an item he couldn’t use right away.
Kang Yoo-sik was taking a look at it at least since he couldn’t make use of it right away, and right when he was about to put Tyrfing back into the box.
– It-, It’s compatible. Lord!
