Chapter 110: Party (2)
At that time.
The creatures that left on the expedition returned.
White entered the dungeon with a weary countenance. But he was still asked about the spoils by Yihi.
An unusual creature. Vast amounts of magic power that couldn’t be seen anywhere else. A very good master!
Even White was completely subservient.
“Eh eh? Why is this flesh so small?”
Yihi asked White with a frown.
He was only the size of a fist but he was clearly Infinite Flesh. The reduced Infinite Flesh was wriggling around. He looked like a slime.
White was playing with the flesh. Then Yihi shouted.
“Jiji! White. Don’t bite him.”
White placed the flesh back on the ground.
Yihi was worried.
She didn’t know what to do with this one.
He was smaller so didn’t look as dangerous as he did in the past. His power was weakened so he didn’t seem able to put up much resistance.
“This isn’t a problem that Yihi can determine the answer to. I will ask Master when he comes back.”
Yihi’s became more thoughtful after changing into an Origin Fairy. But her nature still hadn’t changed.
“I will play with him until then. Yihihi!”
Yihi gave an even smile and started poking the flesh.

Yoo Eun-hye dragged me to a store selling formal wear and started using me as a mannequin.
“Ah, this looks cool. Shall we try one more change?”
“It is already the fifth one.”
At first I had suffered through it, but now I couldn’t see any end. Yoo Eun-hye was looking at me like I was an appetizing piece of meat.
However, it wasn’t tiring for the store employees.
“Guest-nim. I think that Guest-nim’s ratio fits well with this striped suit~”
“Omo! That is totally my taste! Captain-nim, Captain-nim, change quickly! Come on!”
“Or what about this navy suit?”
“Don’t you have good sense? I love everything you bring.”
“If you just wear this once…”
I was tired. Especially of the female employees.
I gave a small sigh as I tried on the clothes.
It was rare for demons to socialize with humans, but it suited my purpose to fit in with them. In addition, I had never been to a party. I was ignorant about human parties. In this situation, it would be wiser to follow someone else.
Yoo Eun-hye showed similar behaviour every time I wore a suit.
She gave a thumbs up.
The staff also looked at me with admiration. I was considered handsome to both demons and humans, so I was familiar with such gazes. It was inconsequential to me.
I was only freed after trying on 20 suits.
“Ah…all of them are my favourites. What do you think?”
Yoo Eun-hye gazed at all the suits. But she only worried about it for a short time.
Yoo Eun-hye gave up and said.
“Ah, I don’t know. Let’s just get all of them.”
“Isn’t that excessive spending?”
I asked Yoo Eun-hye.
“Captain-nim, I have a lot of money. There is enough for three generations, so I can spend this much. Don’t worry.”
This was what she earned by putting her life at risk. Yoo Eun-hye was one of the strongest members of Heaven’s Will. It was natural that she would rake in money.
She took care of creatures around the world. Due to that, the good treatment that she received soared.
I was convinced as the laughing Yoo Eun-hye headed for the cash register.
“How should I calculate it?”
“A lump sum!”
“What about shipping?”
“Can you deliver it by six tonight? Gangnam.”
“Of course. I’ll express send it.”
“Then the shipping…please send it here.”
She didn’t give the address to the Heaven’s Will guild house. I was confused and asked.
“Isn’t that the café I rented the other time?”
“I bought the building a month ago.”
Yoo Eun-hye casually replied.
The café was a place where the raid group members could gather. It was easier to purchase it.
I was a little concerned about her spending. When I first met Yoo Eun-hye, she lived a simple life. The fact that she bought an entire building was a remarkable change.
“Any man who marries me will be truly blessed. I am young, pretty and have some abilities.”
Yoo Eun-hye playfully said.
I ignored her and said.
“Let’s go now.”
Yoo Eun-hye just laughed like she expected the answer and nodded after glancing at the clock on the wall.
“Come to think of it, there is no time. We need to buy shoes.”
“Don’t they need to match the suit?”
The shopping trip wasn’t over yet.
* * *
We hurriedly returned to the guild after a four hour shopping trip.
An amazing sight at first glance! A mansion with a big yard. A few raid members were watching with gaping mouths.
This was where the party was taking place. There were dozens of guards at the entrance to strictly monitor admittance. But I already received an invitation from the leader and could easily pass through the entrance.
“Wah, it is so big. How much money do you need to live in a house like this?”
“You will never know.”
“I am still developing, no one knows how far I might develop. Just watch.”
Lee Ji-hye and Yoo Eun-hye were slightly overwhelmed by the sight.
Spacious grounds that were at least one thousand pyeong. There was only one house, but it was the size of a mansion. People were walking past manicured lawns. Gardeners had also trimmed unfamiliar trees.
“Please be careful not to leave the path.”
A female receptionist who was guiding us said.
We couldn’t step off the path onto the grass. Kim Yong-woo, Yoo Eun-hye and Lee Ji-hye following behind her flinched and tried to make themselves smaller. Despite being the guild master of Heaven’s Will, he still wasn’t familiar with situations like this.
The only ones who weren’t affected were me and Kim Tae-hwan.
Kim Tae-hwan. He was a strong member of the guild and had a friendly relationship with Kim Yong-woo. I didn’t have a bad impression of him after the ‘advice’ he gave me.
The scale of this party was extraordinary.
The chairman of the huge ‘Ilsung Group’ was holding it.
The chairman had trembled in front of me. Of course, I didn’t remember him. Yoo Eun-hye and Kim Yong-woo had given me the information.
But it was small for the richest man in the country. This mansion couldn’t even compare to one of the castles that the dukes and grand dukes owned in the Demon World.
“Why don’t you take off that mask? It looks tight.”
Kim Tae-hwan said to me. He was wearing a casual suit that didn’t fit in with the surroundings and looked extremely unhappy to be here.
“Don’t pay attention to it.”
“Damn, this guy is called the strongest Awakened. Are you trying to give off a mysterious air?”
“That mysteriousness will disappear if you beat me.”
Kim Tae-hwan shook his head.
“I know myself well. And you are certainly strong. Like you came from an entirely different world…”
“I am flattered that you would say that to my face.”
“But that is only right now. Don’t think that you will stay in that spot forever.”
I just laughed.
The gap was indisputable. He knew that he currently wasn’t my opponent. However, he still didn’t give up. Laying down a challenge.
Soon we arrived near the building where the party was being held. Singing and laughing could be heard.
“Captain-nim. How about it? Am I okay?”
Yoo Eun-hye was fussing with her clothes. She wore a red dress with cleavage, and she looked beautiful.
“My makeup? It isn’t smeared?”
“I don’t know.”
I didn’t know anything about makeup.
Then Yoo Eun-hye plastered a lofty expression on her face. She had transformed into an untouchable persona after making a fuss.
“Have a great time.”
The party ushers opened the door. At the same time, hundreds of eyes turned towards us.
