He was at his prime, and there would not be much trouble if they merged .
“Then, I’ll be leaving . Have fun . ”
Let go of my wrist and let me leave . However, Mr . Young Shards did not let me go but actually pulled me in . If he only had a few memories before the return, I might win . However, another part of me whispered that I would find myself in the afterlife .
“You’re heartless . ”
“You tied me up with a chain and dumped me in water the first time we met . I would lose any affection I had for you before . ”
“I dragged you out, dried you, and changed you . And I also accepted you inside me . ”
“That was to save you-“
“That was not me, Yoojin Han . ”
He was right, and the eyes that bent down to me looked foreboding . Hyunjae Sung seemed to be in a foul mood . Well, if he were at the brink of being swallowed whole, even Hyunjae Sung would not be confident, and he was younger mentally .
“Should I apologize?”
“Give me something else instead . ”
“My body . ”
“I’m sorry, but that’s impossible . Play rock, paper, and scissors between the two of you . I can be the judge . ”
It would be fun to watch, while the current Hyunjae Sung would win in all probability . The shard smiled at my words .
“It’s impossible for me to take my current body . However-“
The end of his finger gently tapped my chest, and he traced my wound hidden under clothing with it .
“You have something that can replace it . ”
“What? Wait . ”
Was this bastard really after this?
“It’s a combination of an SS class magic stone and a cracked one that’s at least an L class . ”
“That’s nice . ”
“I can’t give this to you even if you give the entire Sesung Guild!”
I would never be able to get the Diarma one . What was only a shard who could not even pay thinking?
“The magic stone will not wake properly in the present situation . ”
Hyunjae Sung spoke with conviction .
“How do you know that? You said you don’t remember . ”
“I did not lose them all . I remembered a bit about that foolish lizard . ”
Was he telling the truth? I was suspicious but had no way to confirm it . However, the fact was that the combined magic stone did not respond after all this time .
“So what? Would a Hyunjae Sung replica spring out if I give you this stone? That’s horrible! Damn!”
It was a sight that made me curse just by imagining it . I really did not want it to happen, and it would be better to not open the wound and take out the stone . One Hyunjae Sung was enough in my life . While he would be useful, he was still a Hyunjae Sung .
“You’ll hurt my feelings . While I would like to be shifted like that, it’s impossible . ”
That was expected . If it was possible…actually, there might be a way . I shook my head to get rid of all foolish thoughts .
“I would become a different person, something like a beast . ”
“Then, just be swallowed now and here . ”
“It’s not in me to give up so easily . ”
The face that smiled at me looked like the current Hyunjae Sung . He was the same person . I furrowed my brow for a moment and opened my mouth .
“Will you help me succeed in completing the beast?”
“I’ll make sure of that . Your problem is that the higher class magic stone is not whole . Magic is faintly leaking out of it now . ”
Hyunjae Sung spoke that the beast would be complete in at least a month if he supplemented it . While I was weary, I did not just want to lose these stones for nothing . Also, while he was a shard which had no memories before the return, Hyunjae Sung was Hyunjae Sung, and there was a high possibility of the beast stats increasing .
Of course, what irritated me was that he was Hyunjae Sung .
I did not think for long, since I wanted as many cards as possible .
“I’m in . What should I do?”
“You only have to return there and take me with you . I can move onto the stone by myself . ”
“You won’t take my body for your use?”
“If it were possible, I would have asked you to find a stronger one . ”
I apologize for having a weak body, even though I thought I was above average .
I turned off the skill with Hyunjae Sung’s shard . I blanked out for a second before my eyes opened again .
My vision was blurry . I took out a mana potion, but I still could not see well . My eyesight seemed to have decreased, and I hoped it was a temporary condition .
I also ached everywhere, and it took a few vitality potions to get on my feet . The magic stone in my chest seemed to be the same .
‘I’m going to die . ’
I could not speak well, and as I woke up on a bed instead of a sofa, Hyunjae Sung seemed to have returned properly . Then why couldn’t I see?
The question was on the tip of my tongue when I heard the sound of water falling from far away . I did not know what happened, but I immediately thought of that massive aquarium . I stumbled out of the room, and Irin popped out from somewhere and led me after a glance .
It was Yoohyun, and there was no one else anyway .
I nearly fell from the stairs while I was following Irin . There must be an elevator around somewhere . I saw that the aquarium had disappeared, and the two drenched men as I stepped into the garden .
“Hey, are you all right?”
Yoohyun looked back at me as he let go of Hyunjae Sung’s collar . The ground became muddy because of the water, and cleaning would be hell . Why did Hyunjae Sung have something like this in his house? There was a lovely floating garden right over there .
“Why did you come in? You should have waited for a bit longer . You’re dripping . Shouldn’t you manage your household facilities better?”
“I managed to avoid a fire . ”
My brother seemed to have been a little agitated . However, he had a reason to be . Was not burning down the garden a bit trivial compared to what Hyunjae Sung did to me? I did not know whether Yoohyun knew that .
“Anyway, Yoojin Han . ”
Hyunjae Sung suddenly lifted his fingers toward me .
“How many fingers do you see?”
“Three . ”
I can distinguish that much, although things were a little blurry .
“You’re wrong . ”
“Yes? There are definitely three . ”
I grabbed Hyunjae Sung’s hand and pulled it close against me . He was holding three fingers up .
“Why are you lying?”
“Your vision is compromised since you had to pull me closer to check . ”
The clever snake spoke, and Yoohyun stared at me with surprised eyes . Hyunjae Sung complicated things .
