Chapter 94: Good Deeds Pay Off

Uesugi Kiyoshi didn't want any trouble in the first place.

He came this time just to drop off his girlfriend at school, not to pick up a side mission!

But since the mission had practically hit him in the face now, it wouldn't be quite right to ignore it.

Besides, he saw the potion that could separate skin from flesh as having quite a bit of commercial value.

You should know that our skin is just as important as our liver, gallbladder, and heart. It acts as a strong barrier, protecting us from harmful substances, preventing fluid loss, and regulating body temperature.

If someone loses all of their skin, their body would theoretically die quickly due to dehydration, hypothermia, and infections.

However, when Kawabe Maya puts on her skin, she looks almost normal, and even if she takes it off, she only risks dehydration.

Uesugi Kiyoshi suspects that the Alchemy potion Maya used can penetrate from the outer skin to the muscles, separating the connection between the skin and muscles, while also acting as a long-term antibacterial and antioxidant.

This helps prevent damage to peeled skin and infection or oxidation of exposed muscles.

When treating burn patients, using this potion to remove the injured skin beforehand would make the treatment much easier.

It might also have a good effect on other skin conditions.

If the dosage is reduced or if a medium is used, maybe the potion's effect could be limited to the epidermis and dermis only.

This way, without harming the body, we could have skin that is protected from infection and oxidation, which is known as eternal youth.

The alchemist's words of eternal life are not all lies!

Of course, we don't know the actual results yet. The main task now is to get the recipe of the potion, conduct experiments, and then we can determine the final outcome.

"Don't worry, Miss Kawabe, you are not strange like you think."

Uesugi Kiyoshi first calmed down the frightened Kawabe Maya.

"You are also a victim in this situation, while your sister is a suspect. Do you want me to help contact the police station?"

Kawabe Maya shook her head, tears streaming down uncontrollably, "After all, she is my sister..."

After wearing the skin, she looked like an elegant and beautiful lady, but no matter how emotional she was, she always appeared indifferent.

The muscle movements can no longer reach the skin.

"So, what do we need to do next?" asked Uesugi Kiyoshi.

"Oh, and there's Little Riki too! Sister's child! She is using this potion on Little Riki, hoping to make him beautiful too!"

Thinking about this, Kawabe Maya started to feel anxious and restless.

"I secretly changed some ingredients in the potion, but even so, Little Riki won't last long. Can you help him?"

Uesugi Kiyoshi patted his chest, "Leave it to me!"

With nothing else to do, after completing the registration process, they walked towards the Kawabe house under the guidance of Kawabe Maya.

In April, the days are long and the nights are short, even when the clock has already struck seven o'clock, the sky is only slightly dimmed.

Just as they were about to reach their destination, Uesugi Kiyoshi suddenly noticed a woman wrapped in a black cloak and hat from head to toe.

This woman was slender, wearing high heels, standing in front of a passerby, and then opening her cloak to the surprise of the other person.

"Am I beautiful?"

"Ah!!!"

The passerby let out a shriek when he saw the body under the cloak, and hurriedly ran away into the distance.

The sight seemed to please the woman greatly, even making her let out a joyful laugh.

"Oh hohoho!"

"Sister?"

Kawabe Maya's shout woke up the cloaked woman, who turned around to speak but saw a crowd of people next to her sister. She hesitated for a moment, then quickly wrapped herself in the cloak and ran away into the distance.

In just a moment, Uesugi Kiyoshi saw clearly that the woman's face was blood-red, and there wasn't a trace of skin on it.

"Chase her!"

The cloaked woman was none other than Kawabe Maya's sister, Kawabe Ryoka.

She ran straight to her home, followed closely by Uesugi Kiyoshi and his group, who all entered the Kawabe residence. As they walked in, they saw Kawabe Ryoka in the process of shedding her skin.

In the living room, there was a three-feet wide water tank filled with water, where the skin was supposed to be soaking. It was still dripping water below.

"Maya, why did you bring outsiders in?" scolded Kawabe Ryoka.

Kawabe Maya knelt on the ground, pleading, "Sister, I did it for Little Riki. Please spare him, he is still young. Every time the film is peeled off, it takes a layer of skin with it..."

"What did you say!" Kawabe Ryoka's face showed anger. "Aren't I just trying to make Little Riki see his most beautiful side? Even I want to see, I need to see!"

Uesugi Kiyoshi immediately noticed Kawabe Riki.

He was a six or seven-year-old boy, with a cold expression, no hair on his bald head, and thin skin that seemed like it could break at any moment.

Actually, there were already several areas where the skin had cracked, revealing the bloody muscles underneath.

Even with so many people in the house, he remained seated on the floor, holding his knees without saying a word.

Uesugi Kiyoshi asked, "Have you ever thought about what would happen if Little Riki took off his skin now and grew up in the future?"

"Grow up? Little Riki will grow up to be a handsome young boy!" Kawabe Ryoka replied without hesitation.

"But can he still grow after that?" Uesugi Kiyoshi continued, "Even if his bones can grow longer and his muscles can stretch, the skin that's been taken off can't grow back. Can a teenager wear a child's skin from when he was six or seven?"

Kawabe Ryoka seemed stunned, never having considered this question before.

"Yes, sister, please, just let Little Riki go. He's still a child. It's not too late to make him beautiful in another ten years, right?"

"...No! I want to see it now! I want to see Little Riki's beautiful body now!" Kawabe Ryoka reached out, grabbing the wallpaper on the wall, making a "crackling" sound.

"You can't do that!"

Uesugi Kiyoshi didn't want to argue with her anymore and signaled for his subordinate to bring the child back.

People like her, who abuse children due to mental illness, are not fit to care for children. Her best place should be prison.

Regarding Kawabe Riki, instead of experiencing that strange motherly love, it would be better to hand him over to his own aunt.

Seeing the little boy crying tears of joy, Uesugi Kiyoshi couldn't help but smile.

Doing good deeds is so joyful.

Of course, if good people receive good rewards, they are even happier.

"By the way, Miss Kawabe Maya, are you interested in selling the formula for the potion or collaborating with others?" Uesugi Kiyoshi casually asked on the way back.

Kawabe Maya hurriedly waved her hand, "But I don't have the formula, the formula is with my sister!"

"...Haven't you been helping her prepare the potion all along?"

"The ingredients of that potion are too complex, I didn't write them down. By the way, why do you want such harmful stuff?!"
