Lord of the Oasis - Chapter 817
Chapter 889: a waiter that I met by chance
After rubbing himself in the bath, Bunduk comfortably soaked in the wooden bucket filled with hot water for a while. The bathroom in the guest room had a window facing the street. It was noon at this time. The noise of the pedestrians on the street was like a tidal wave hitting Bunduk’s ears.
The sunlight from the horizon shone on the water in front of Bunduk. If he didn’t care about the things that sank to the bottom of the bucket, the hot water provided by the shop was still very good: fresh and bright.
“It should be spring now,”Bunduk said softly as he looked at the ripples in the water.
In the process of getting the antidote from pick, they had already met quite a number of members of the Dark Side organization.
The incident that happened in the guild yesterday had already been blocked by the Gnome clan. Even the government officials who were present at the time were ordered not to spread the news of the fight within the guild.
Then, among those who knew the inside story, be it the Gnome Kingdom or the Dragon Race’s midget clan, the first ones who wanted to get in contact should be Kant and the others.
Bunduk, who had just escaped from a life-threatening disaster, did not think too much about what would happen next.
In his heart, he was only filled with gratitude for life.
While Bunduk was still resting in the bathroom, Kant and Abel had quietly left the guest room.
The two of them slowly walked to the entrance of the spiral staircase. Abel leaned out and looked at the lobby on the first floor.
There were fewer customers than a few days ago. Most of them were affected by the sudden attack of the orc men.
“Your Majesty, the chef you mentioned couldn’t have disappeared, right?”Abel noticed the whereabouts of the waiters who were moving around in the hall and spoke to Kant.
“I think we’ll meet again.”Kant thought for a moment and replied, “I just don’t know what kind of scene it will be.”
“What a mysterious person…”Abel sighed.
In the past three days, the two of them had asked a lot about the chef in the restaurant. However, they had received very little information.
The waiters in the entire inn seemed to be unable to contact this mysterious person. Even today, a messenger walked into the inn and said that someone had asked him to send a resignation letter. And this letter was indeed written by that chef.
“Let’s go upstairs and take a look.”Kant paced around the stairs for a while, and after making a decision in his heart, he said to Abel.
“Up There?”Abel pointed at the fourth floor and asked softly.
“Yes. Let’s go.”Kant nodded and replied. Then, he took a step forward and walked up the stairs leading to the fourth floor.
“Wait, Your Majesty.”After looking around, Abel bent his back and called out to Kant, who was strolling forward.
Kant turned around and looked at him. Then, the two of them carefully climbed to the fourth floor in the same position.
“Eh? Lord Kant, and Lord Abel?”A familiar voice was heard in front of the two of them. Abel, who was following behind Kant, could not help but be startled.
Kant, on the other hand, quickly crouched on the stairs, as if he was looking for something. When he saw the figure approaching him, he stood up with a smile and looked at the orcs in front of him. He replied, “Nate, is that you?”
“Why are the two Lords Here?”Nate stopped at the same level as Kant and asked in puzzlement.
“Abel accidentally lost my ring. We searched many places but couldn’t find it. So we thought that the ring might have fallen on the stairs,”Kant quickly explained.
“But… This is the stairs leading to the fourth floor.”Nate turned his head and looked upstairs. After confirming that it was indeed the fourth floor, he asked in puzzlement.
“The fourth floor… Ah, the fourth floor!”Abel, who was standing at the side, said, “We were so busy looking at the stairs that we didn’t pay much attention to it. Otherwise, how would we find this place?”
“Oh, I see.”Nate nodded blankly. “The fourth floor is our boss’s exclusive floor. Although it’s not very appropriate to say this, as waiters in the shop, we still hope that Lord Kant and Lord Abel will try their best to avoid appearing in such a place.”
“Yes.”Kant’s expression also became serious.
“Lord Kant, the ring you lost may be found with the help of the waiters in the shop.”Nitte earnestly suggested to Kant after explaining the rules of the shop in a serious manner.
“No need.”Kant sized him up, he waved his hand and said, “It’s not very important. It’s just a gift I bought from the vendors when I first came to the town. However, I have a question to ask you.”
“What… Question?”Nate asked guiltily.
“Why are you here?”Kant stared straight at Nate and asked.
“I… came to pack things for the boss.”After some hesitation, Nate confessed.
“You saw Reuben?”Upon hearing Nate’s answer, Abel immediately widened his eyes and questioned loudly.
“Shh!”Nate quickly placed his index finger in front of him and made a silent gesture, he said anxiously, “Please Keep Your Voice Down. Lord Trubin’s… Identity is quite special, and I think you all know that. This time, he is prepared to hand over the matters of the shop to me because he trusts my ability to handle matters. Please don’t spread this matter.”
“When did you meet?”At this moment, Kant noticed that there was a square-shaped bag on the left-hand side of Nitte. It was probably the luggage that was packed for Reuben.
“The day before yesterday.”Nitte was very uncomfortable with Kant and Kant’s questions.
“What did he ask you to bring him?”Kant frowned and continued to ask.
“This…”Nitte hesitated and didn’t say the rest.
“Such a small package, could it be that it contained some small items like gold, silver, and Jade?”Abel guessed.
After hearing this, Nitte hugged the package tightly in his arms, and looked at Kant and Abel with disbelief.
“It seems that Trubin really wants to leave this town.”Abel immediately understood. “I guess he won’t come back in the future.”
“The boss will come back.”Knight wanted to cry, but no tears came out. Abel’s words hit the worry in his heart.
“You are going to see him now, right?”Kant quietly looked at the young waiter in front of him. When he saw the wetness in the corner of his eyes, a trace of regret appeared in his heart.
“You…”Nate swallowed his saliva and said uneasily.
“Do you think that we will snatch the hard currency that you prepared for Trubin?”Abel could not stand it anymore and used a sentence to remind Nate.
Chapter 890: the difference in perspective
Nate’s gaze looked back and forth between Abel and Kant’s faces. In the end, he was convinced by the calmness of the two. He heaved a sigh of relief and replied, “I don’t think so now. However, I still can’t reveal the information about meeting my boss to you.”
“It’s alright.”Kant shook his head gently and replied.
After saying this, Kant said goodbye to Nate, “You do your thing. We’ll leave first.”
“This…”Nate looked at Kant’s back and said helplessly.
Abel glanced at Kant, winked at him, and left.
The two walked briskly back to their guest room.
“Your Majesty, do you need to send someone to follow Nate?”After closing the door to the guest room, Abel asked Kant, who was tidying up his coat.
“No need.”Kant waved his hand and said, “There’s no need.”
“Alright then.”Abel patted the dust on his body and hung his coat on the clothes rack at the entrance. He continued, “Trubin chose to leave at this time. He’s really decisive.”
Kant beckoned for Abel to sit down at the tea table. After hearing this, he poured a cup of tea for Abel. He then replied, “The big trees in the monitoring station have all collapsed, and the business on this street has become difficult. “If we don’t leave now, when is the right time to stay? “It’s just a pity that he has adopted this batch of orcs orphans.”
“The business in the shop is indeed not as prosperous as before.”After drinking a mouthful of tea, Abel said with his mouth agape, “However, if Nate and the others only think about food and clothing, the favor left by the boss can be considered pretty good.”
“Hehe, maybe Nate can become a second boss.”Kant glanced at him, raised his Teacup and said.
“That’s not very good…”Abel’s figure paused and said with a frown.
“The resources used in the inn now can not be used for reference without the boss’s own connections,”Kant decided. “The person is in the inn. If the person leaves just like that. “This inn will not be the same as before.”
“I see…”Abel lowered his head and said. There was a hint of a sigh in his tone.
The two of them did not open their mouths to talk until they finished their first cup of tea.
“Go and see Bunduk.”Kant did not continue to focus on this topic. Instead, he instructed Abel, “If it’s too boring to stay in the room, it’s better to just walk around.”
“Okay.”Abel nodded. Then, he stood up and walked towards Bunduk’s guest room.
“Knock, Knock!”Abel raised his hand and knocked on the door. he shouted, “Bunduk, are you asleep?”
He waited quietly outside the door for a while, but he did not hear any response from inside the door. Abel stood where he was and hesitated for a while. In the end, he tried to open the door lock.
The moment he opened the door, a white mist rushed towards him. It was hot.
“Huh?”Abel could not help but ask in puzzlement. He raised his hand and touched his face that had been hit by the Hot Mist. It was water vapor.
When he came back to his senses, Abel found that his vision had been filled with the white mist.
The culprit of all this was Bunduk, who was sleeping soundly in the wooden barrel.
“Bunduk! What are you doing!”Abel ran to the bathroom in a hurry. When he saw the hot water pipe running continuously and the motionless Bunduk in the bathtub, he immediately shouted angrily.
The water that had accumulated in the bathroom had reached Abel’s ankles. It seemed that Bunduk had fallen asleep an hour and a half ago.
Abel stood on his tiptoes and twisted the switch of the hot water pipe. After the water flow gradually subsided through the drain, he lowered his head and looked at the leather boots on his feet that were drenched. He walked to the wooden barrel angrily, reached out his hands and shook Bunduk’s upper body, and shouted, “Bunduk! Wake Up!”
“AH… Abel, why are you here?”Bunduk was woken up just like that. When he opened his eyes in a daze, he did not seem to know what he had done. He was only a little puzzled by Abel’s appearance.
“Look at this bathroom.”Abel’s anger was blocked by the expression on Bunduk’s face. After taking a few deep breaths, he said in a muffled voice.
“AH? Ah! ! !”Bunduk looked at the place in his line of sight in confusion. When he saw the mess around him, he could not help but shout in shock, “How could this be?”
“You bastard! You fell into the bathtub to sleep and didn’t turn off the water!”Abel sat down on a low stool beside the bathtub, he roughly explained to bunduk, “If we had come back a little later, or if we didn’t think of coming to take care of you, you would have drowned yourself.”
“Thank you,”Bunduk said embarrassedly. If he drowned himself and died in such a way, even if he went to heaven, he would probably be laughed at by his comrades.
“Hurry up and get out of the bathtub.”Abel pointed at Bunduk’s hands and said, “Look, your hands are wrinkled from soaking.”
“Okay.”Bunduk stood up from the bathtub and wrapped his lower body with a towel. He walked to the sink and began to wash up.
“Are you hungry? I’ll get the waiter to prepare some food.”After his anger subsided, Abel was still more concerned about Bunduk’s recovery.
“A little.”Bunduk was rinsing his mouth, so it was not convenient for him to speak. He turned around and pointed at his stomach, giving a simple answer to Abel.
“Yes.”Abel nodded and slowly stood up. When he was about to leave, he glanced at the bathtub that Bunduk had taken a bath in. After seeing the dark green dirt, he frowned and asked, “Is this the poison that was expelled from your body?”
“Yes.”Bunduk looked in Abel’s direction. After understanding what he was referring to, he nodded.
“Pick told us that actually, the moment you drank the antidote, the worm eggs of ‘intonation’left your body. “But their toxins are mainly stored in their excrement. “So, you need to continuously clean up the toxins that were expelled from your body a few days after you drank the antidote.”
Bunduk slowly turned around and looked at Abel. He asked in surprise, “You mean to say that the eggs are… excreted in my body?”
“Yes.”Abel had a strange smile on his face. He covered his face and said, “That’s what I said. Why do I feel that you’ve become a lot more swollen a few days ago? However, it’s a good thing that you’ve slimmed down now.”
Bunduk completely understood that this kid was deliberately teasing him. But he really couldn’t accept the scene of the insect eggs being excreted in his body.
Chapter 891: a talk about the past few days
Abel’s words made him want to wash his body again.
“Hurry up and get out. I want to take a bath again,”Bunduk said as he pushed Abel out of the door.
“You still want to take a Bath!”Abel was surprised. After all, what he said was just to tease him.
“I won’t be able to stand it if I don’t take a bath.”After pushing Abel out of the bathroom door, Bunduk slammed the bathroom door shut.
Abel was left standing outside the bathroom door. he shouted helplessly, “Are you going to wash off the most superficial layer of skin? Just take a bath. “Just now, you caused a flood. Be careful that the waiter downstairs won’t provide us with water. At night, His Majesty Kant and I can’t even take a bath casually.”
“Got it!”Bunduk’s voice came from the bathroom.
“Sigh.”Abel shrugged and walked out of Bunduk’s room. When he saw Kant’s gaze, he explained helplessly, “Bunduk… is still taking a shower.”
“Why are your boots wet? Hurry up and change into a clean pair.”Kant did not care much about Abel’s explanation and only nodded lightly. However, after his sharp eyes noticed the water mark that Abel had left on the floor, he suggested worriedly.
“Yes.”Abel nodded. He carefully walked to the entrance and changed his soaked boots and cotton socks. After tidying everything up, he returned to the seat beside Kant and took the hot tea that Kant had handed to him.
“Your Majesty.”Abel glanced at the room where Bunduk was, then looked at Kant and asked, “Do we still need to go to the fourth floor to collect the evidence left behind by Trubin?”
“Forget it.”Kant shook his head, “Since trubin thought of letting Nitte pack his bags for him, most of the evidence upstairs is worthless to us. “If after this, Turubin’s identity is found out by the people on the island. “Those things might be able to keep this inn.”
“Yes.”After careful consideration, Abel agreed with Kant’s decision.
The two looked at each other and laughed together. Then, they began to chat about other lighter topics.
After a while, Bunduk wiped his hair with a towel and walked out of his room.
“What are you guys talking about?”After sitting down at the Teahouse, Bunduk asked curiously.
“Nothing.”Abel smiled. “We’re just talking about our first time on the island.”
“Sounds interesting.”Bunduk smiled. “But, Bunduk, the first time you came to the island was when the Elf Kingdom discovered that the midget clan had disappeared.”
“Yes,”Abel replied. “At that time, I was just a common soldier in the army. The leader of the team led us through mountains and ridges to this small town. It seems to have happened last summer.”
“So it has been so long.”Bunduk took a deep breath and said.
“Both of US first came to this small island this spring. Naturally, we would be surprised.”Kant was amused by Bunduk’s reaction. “How is your recovery?”
“Oh right, I haven’t told the waiter about lunch.”After hearing Kant’s words, Abel suddenly thought of this and said, “You guys chat first. I’ll go and greet the waiter.”
After saying that, Abel immediately left the table and walked out of the guest room.
“Actually, I’m not very hungry.”Bunduk touched his stomach in embarrassment and said, “It’s just that after taking a bath, I suddenly feel a bit of appetite.”
“Hehe, other people reduce their appetite by taking a bath, but you are the only one who developed the thought of being hungry after taking a bath. “It seems that this antidote has indeed changed your body quite a bit.”Kant looked at the healthy Bunduk in front of him, he was in a good mood. He spoke a little more than usual.
“I see…”Bunduk covered his face, and his ears were red.
Everyone knew that he usually ate a lot.
The antidote that pick gave him was probably to maintain his body’s best status and replenish his vitality while expelling the poison. However, when the effect was maintained to the end, the feeling of hunger gradually appeared.
“Is there anything inconvenient about it?”Kant took a sip of tea and asked Bunduk.
“There’s nothing inconvenient about it. “I feel that my body has become stronger again. “On the contrary, a few days ago, I had a very strange feeling. It was as if everything I touched was not real, but imagined. “There was no sense of being ‘alive’.”
During the process of his statement, Bunduk’s tone gradually became sorrowful.
He was prepared to bring these words to the grave. When Kant and Abel comforted him, he endured the pain in his heart and did not express it to them.
Now that the voodoo poison in his body had been cured, he could calmly say what had happened in the past. However, when he mentioned it, he could not help but bring in the emotions of that time.
“Are you talking about… What happened before you obtained it?”Kant’s tone was very gentle. Now that he thought about it, the firmness that Bunduk displayed at that time was beyond his imagination.
“Yes.”Bunduk nodded silently and replied, “Not everyone will have such an experience, right. “Perhaps with this story, when I face the people who suffered such an accident in the future, I will be able to understand their feelings better.”
‘how kind…’. Kant was rendered speechless by Bunduk’s words for a long time. He could only mutter in his heart.
It was an existence that could transform the pain in his body into strength that could tolerate the pain of others. What kind of excellent nature did he have to have such an idea.
“Yes, this is quite good.”Kant nodded at Bunduk after thinking for a long time.
“Am I an idiot?”Bunduk said self-deprecatingly. As a soldier, he was placed in an important position after entering the military barrack. He rose all the way and even became the commander of the troops. What filled his life was only the tactics on the battlefield and the Missions Kant gave him. He was in a position that was out of the reach of his peers, so he naturally did not know how an ordinary person of his age lived in peace with this world.
“I think that people who are lucky enough to be born in this world will pay a corresponding price,”Kant replied calmly. “But this world is so big, and the God who created us out of selfishness will not exist in the Highlands that look down on us.”
Chapter 892: Lunch after recovery
“Your Majesty, What are you talking about?”Bunduk was stunned, but he still did not understand what Kant was trying to say. In the end, he asked in confusion.
“What I mean is, if you feel that living is a good thing, then live well.”Kant smiled and said, “As an unusual part of people, Live Well.”
“Yes.”After listening to Kant’s words, the corners of Bunduk’s eyes unconsciously became moist. The moment Kant’s words reached his heart, for some reason, a burst of sadness overflowed.
* thud! * at this moment, both of them heard the sound of the door closing from the entrance. Abel, who had just left, led the waiter in. The two of them worked together to carry the dining cart up the stairs of the entrance.
Kant glanced at the plates on the dining cart and asked curiously, “Why are there so many dishes? Didn’t we already have lunch?”
“I asked the waiter to prepare some sweet snacks for afternoon tea,”Abel explained with a smile. “But most of the dishes here are still prepared for Bunduk. “Didn’t the doctor say that? “The first meal after waking up must be full.”
Kant thought about it and greeted the waiter. “Thank you for your hard work. We will send the dining cart back to the kitchen later.”
“It’s okay, because Lord Abel has been helping us.”The waiter took out a napkin from the dining cart and spread it on the tea table. He answered in embarrassment.
“The shop seems to be a little busy recently, so I asked him to take the dining cart upstairs with me.”Abel’s expression was very clear, he said frankly, “Young man, after you have tidied up the napkin, leave the rest to us. You Go and do your own thing.”
“Thank you, Lord Abel. I’ll take my leave first.”After receiving Abel’s instructions, the waiter retreated to the side and bowed as he took his leave.
Bunduk personally sent the waiter to the door. When he returned to the tea table that had been transformed into a dining table, the three of them had already arranged the cutlery provided by the inn.
After Abel removed the covers of the dishes one by one, bunduk exclaimed, “I can’t eat these, right? !”
“Don’t worry. These are all recipes that I got from the Doctor.”Abel winked at Bunduk and said, “Just don’t feel burdened.”
“… Okay.”Bunduk swallowed his saliva and nodded.
“Drink some aperitif first.”Abel wrapped the champagne in the ice bucket with a towel. However, when he saw Kant’s eyes, he immediately stopped and explained, “The Doctor said that moderate drinking is good for the body. Bunduk, drink less.”
Kant shook his head helplessly and did not say anything to stop Abel’s action.
Bunduk looked at Abel pouring wine for him and asked with a smile, “Don’t tell me you got a bottle of good wine under my cover?”
“This…”after realizing that his little plan had been exposed, Abel immediately covered it up and said, “How is this possible? This is the good wine that I asked the waiter in the shop to save for me. It’s used to celebrate your recovery from your long illness.”
After hearing Abel’s explanation, Kant laughed and coughed twice. He teased, “Isn’t your explanation the same as what Bunduk said just now?”
“Ah! I…”Abel was stunned. After he reacted, he said dejectedly, “Alright, what Bunduk said is right.”
“Hahahaha.”Bunduk and Abel looked at each other and laughed.
“Abel, I didn’t realize that you are a drunkard who likes to drink.”Kant took a sip of champagne and said jokingly.
“Of course, I’m not a drunkard who likes to drink,”Abel said with a smile, “But Your Majesty, you said that this wine is good, so I naturally want to try it.”
“This wine…”after taking a sip of Champagne, Bunduk said with a stiff neck, “Why does it feel a little strange? It’s not the same as the wine I mentioned in the hotel in Caradia.”
“It’s just that the way to mix it is different.”Kant waved his hand and said, “Drinking this kind of wine is easier. Bunduk, you’d better eat first.”
“Okay.”Bunduk put down the wine glass in agreement and rinsed his mouth with snow clam soup. Then he picked up the knife and fork beside him and chopped up a large piece of meat.
Abel was immersed in the atmosphere of good wine and didn’t care much about how Bunduk ate.
When he almost passed out, Abel realized that Bunduk had already cleaned out all the dishes in front of him. He drank the soup with a satisfied expression.
“You still said that you can’t eat that much…”before he could finish his sentence, Abel fell onto the tea table with a thud.
Kant was frightened by the noise and turned around. When he saw Abel collapsed, he sighed and said, “This guy obviously doesn’t know how to drink.”
“Let me help him back to his room,”Bunduk volunteered.
“Okay,”Kant nodded slightly and agreed.
“Okay.”Bunduk stood up from his seat and helped Abel to his shoulder. Then, he helped him to his guest room.
After watching the two of them leave, Kant looked at the dessert placed in front of Abel’s seat and silently swapped his empty plate with it. He picked up the silver spoon and ate it bit by bit.
When he knew that Bunduk had settled Abel and returned to the main hall, more than half of the pastries in front of him were still left.
“Your Highness, haven’t you already eaten the pastries?”After sitting down, Bunduk asked Kant in puzzlement.
“Yes.”Kant put down the cutlery in his hand with a smile and replied, “I thought I could eat some more, but in the end, I still couldn’t finish Abel’s portion.”
“Leave it to me.”Bunduk smiled and moved the dessert in front of Kant in front of him, eating it with a fork.
Kant quietly watched him finish the dessert. In the end, he poured a cup of tea for Bunduk and asked, “It’s very sweet, isn’t it? The dessert in this inn has a good taste, but it has more sweet frost.”
“It’s okay.”Bunduk was shocked by the sweetness, but he still shook his head and denied it.
“Drink some tea.”Kant handed the Teacup to Bunduk and persuaded him.
After taking the Teacup, Bunduk immediately drank a whole cup of hot tea. The sweetness in his mouth was finally diluted by the taste of the tea.
“This dessert should probably be used with the tea.”Bunduk couldn’t help but sigh as he recalled the fragrance and sweetness in his mouth.
“Hehe, what you said is right. You shouldn’t eat so quickly.”Kant said with a smile.
Bunduk stood up and tidied up the dining table, while Kant was responsible for stacking the dishes and various utensils neatly.
After tidying up everything, Bunduk carried the dining cart outside the door alone. Just as he was hesitating whether he needed to call for a waiter to help. The waiter who had appeared in the room just now had already walked to the stairs on the second floor. He greeted bunduk, “Lord Bunduk, you can leave the dining cart at the corridor. I and the others will come and transport it away.”
“AH.”Bunduk nodded in embarrassment and said, “Alright then, I’ll have to trouble you.”
“It’s alright.”The waiter replied with a smile.
Despite this, Bunduk still personally pushed the dining cart to the stairway. He thought to himself, ‘the waiter in charge of cleaning up the room will also transport the used dining cart away when he sees it, right?’.
After confirming that the dining cart was intact, Bunduk patted the dust on his hands and turned to walk to the guest room. The guest room door was still open. Kant came out of the bathroom with a pot of freshly brewed tea. He asked Bunduk, who had returned, “Why are you back so soon?”
“I met a waiter on the way. He told me to leave the dining car in the corridor. He said that someone would come to clean it up later.”Bunduk changed out of his leather boots. He walked barefoot to the tea table and sat down.
“Yes.”After Kant sat down at the tea table, he asked bunduk, “Water was poured everywhere in the bathroom. What did you do?”
“Well…”Bunduk was stunned and explained embarrassedly, “When I was bathing, I accidentally fell asleep. As a result, the hot water pipe was still on.”
“I see.”Kant replied calmly, “After waking up this time, is it easy to get sleepy?”
“I don’t think so,”Bunduk replied as he thought about it. “I feel that my mind power is quite good.”
“I have already sent a message to the doctor in the medical center, asking him to come to the hotel at this time tomorrow to examine your body,”Kant instructed. “Don’t stand him up when the time comes.”
“Yes, your majesty. Is it that doctor from the Elves?”Bunduk recalled the scene where he went to the medical center in the East City with Kant and Abel. Although the elf doctor seemed to be calm and reliable, at that time, he probably did not think of curing his own illness.
“Yes.”Kant nodded and took a sip of tea, he said, “That doctor seems to be quite interested in how the insect worms in your body dissipated. Before you woke up, he had already come twice.”
“I see.”Bunduk nodded in understanding. “However, the antidote was given to me by pick, and only that one dose. He came to see me. What can he see?”
“I don’t know about that.”Kant nodded lightly and replied, “You also know that rushing here from the East City will take a lot of effort. I can see that the doctor is sincere in coming to see you.”
“Yes.”Bunduk nodded slightly and said, “By the way, Your Majesty, do you know what the medicine that pick gave me is? I really want to know.”
The moment he drank the antidote, Bunduk felt that his body was roaring like a tsunami. That kind of experience was probably something that he would never forget in this lifetime.
“I don’t know.”Kant glanced at Bunduk and said, “Pick didn’t mention this to us.”
“AH? I thought you would ask him,”Bunduk said in surprise. After all, his performance after drinking the antidote was indeed quite worrying.
“No,”Kant recalled. “After you fainted, your hand turned dark green and began to expel the poison. We were all shocked, but pick also fainted at that time. “So Abel and I could only take care of the two of you separately. “When you woke up. “In the end, the two of you slept for an entire night.”
“What happened after that?”Bunduk asked nervously.
“After that… “Nothing happened, right?”Kant raised his eyebrows and answered, “After pick woke up, he immediately left the city. “Of course, at that time, we already knew that all the voodoo in your body had been cleaned up.”
“I see.”Bunduk nodded. “Then the question of the antidote is really a mystery.”
Kant raised the Teacup on the table to his lips, and the steaming hot air covered his eyes. No one could see what was in his eyes.
That night, after hearing the sound of pick falling to the ground, Kant quickly turned around at a speed second to Abel. He watched as Bunduk drank the antidote in Pick’s hand.
He actually did not believe that pick would give them the real antidote just like that. So at that time, he also broke out in a sweat for Kant.
Bunduk’s painful look after drinking the antidote made his heart contract.
Just as Abel was in a hurry to Comfort Bunduk, Kant rushed in front of the very weak pick and grabbed him by the collar. He wanted to open his mouth and question loudly.
At this moment, Kant caught a glimpse of the scratch on Pick’s middle finger.
“This is…”Kant frowned and looked at the wound that was rapidly healing.
“Let go of me.”After noticing Kant’s gaze moving to his hands, pick immediately used his last bit of strength to push Kant away. When the soldier on both sides was about to walk over and clamp him down, pick had already fainted from the pain.
After Kant was pushed away by pick, he was silent for a moment, and it was unknown what he was thinking about. Then, he turned around and instructed the two soldiers, “Help pick to the bed in the guest room and let him rest well.”
“Yes…”the soldier answered obediently. One of the soldiers immediately stretched out his right hand, wanting to help pick to his shoulder. But unexpectedly, he couldn’t move pick’s body.
“Give me a hand,”the soldier who first started to move said to Bubin.
“Huh?”Bubin looked at him in puzzlement. The two stood in the direction of Pick’s head and tail, using all their strength to lift pick up from the ground.
“Why is he so heavy!”Bubin growled in a low voice.
Pick was one of the shorter ones among the humans, and he looked very thin. If one only looked at him, he would not even weigh fifty kilograms.
When Bubin and the others were carrying out load training in the military barrack, their target weight was at least two hundred kilograms.
“I don’t know either,”the other soldier, whose veins had already appeared on his arm, answered with difficulty.
“This kid is really a monster,”Bu bin ridiculed.
“Let’s hurry up. Commander Bunduk still needs help,”the soldier suggested. The two of them held their breaths and helped pick onto the bed in the guest room.
After touching the soft quilt, Pick’s body lost its previous weight.
“Okay. Let’s go back quickly.”After covering pick with the quilt, Boubin wiped the sweat from his forehead and said to the soldier beside him.
“Okay.”The soldier glanced at pick, who was lying on the bed, and then left the room.
The two of them happened to meet Kant, who was visiting pick at the door of the bedroom. They bowed and said, “Lord Kant, we have settled pick.”
“Okay, you two go and take a look at Bunduk. His condition is a little troublesome now.”Kant nodded and instructed the two of them.
“The kid who is sleeping inside couldn’t have given commander Bunduk a fake antidote, right?”The soldier frowned and said with a worried tone.
“No.”Kant shook his head and said firmly.
Bubin and the soldier beside him looked at each other. Although they did not know how Kant came to this conclusion, since he showed such a certain attitude, the soldiers could only follow and believe in pick.
After the two of them left Kant’s bags, they rushed to the main hall of the guest room. However, Abel had already helped Bunduk out of the room. There was only a pile of excrement waiting for them on the floor.
When Kant entered the bedroom, he immediately sat down beside Pick’s bed. Under the illumination of the candlesticks in the room, Pick’s face was almost pale.
Kant hesitated for a moment before reaching out to pick’s forehead. What he came into contact with was a bone-chilling cold. Kant immediately frowned. He stood up solemnly and carefully pulled pick’s hands out of the quilt. There were traces of dried blood on the middle finger of his right hand.
When Kant first saw it, he still had a trace of disbelief in his heart. Because Pick was a human beast tamer, but the blood flowing in his body was green.
But now Kant was able to face it calmly.
“It seems that the antidote he gave is indeed his own blood,”Kant muttered as he observed the wound on pick’s finger that had healed as before.
However, Pick, who was still unconscious on the bed, borrowed some strength from God knows where and grabbed Kant’s hands.
“AH.”This strength was not considered gentle. Kant called out softly and saw that his wrists were turning red at a speed visible to the naked eye.
“Don’t tell anyone,”pick shouted in a daze.
Kant looked at pick’s face in surprise and found that pick’s eyes were still closed. It seemed that pick was still immersed in his sleep.
“Don’t tell anyone.”Pick repeated. The strength of his hand did not seem to relax.
“I won’t tell anyone.”After taking a deep breath, Kant looked at pick’s face and promised solemnly.
“… HMM.”Pick stopped muttering to himself when he heard Kant’s voice in his sleep. The hands that were tightly holding onto Kant’s wrists also weakly rested on the quilt that was covering his body.
“Rest well.”Kant moved his wrists and then neatly covered pick with the quilt. He whispered to him.
Pick fainted completely this time, and did not respond to Kant’s words at all.
Kant sat quietly on the edge of the bed, as if thinking about something. Before he knew it, half an hour had passed.
“Da Da Da.”Light footsteps sounded in a quiet room, Kant went to the bedroom with the bathroom. He took a basin of boiling hot water from the basin provided by the inn and took a clean towel from the hook behind the door.
“Although I don’t know what effect this will have, if it can make you feel better, then it will be good.”Kant dipped the towel into the basin and wrung the wet towel dry, he repeatedly wiped pick’s forehead and neck with the steaming towel.
Pick seemed to feel that someone was taking care of him, and his facial features became more relaxed.
“It seems that the effect is good,”Kant said to himself.
After taking care of pick until midnight, Kant, who could not bear the fatigue, yawned. He stood up from the edge of the bed, walked to the corner of the bedroom, and blew out the candle holder with his mouth. Then, he left the bedroom.
The next afternoon after that night, pick woke up.
Kant and Abel were at the inn’s entrance, watching the elves’doctor leave. When he walked back to the lobby, he saw pick walking down the stairs of the second floor, wrapped in a cotton-padded jacket that he always carried with him.
“Are you okay?”Kant took the initiative to greet him.
“Yes.”Pick frowned at Kant’s words, as if he did not understand what Kant meant. After recalling the fact that he fainted yesterday, he nodded slightly.
“The Doctor from the north city confirmed that the poison in Bunduk’s body has disappeared. When are you going to leave?”Abel’s eyes were black and blue, after taking care of Bunduk for one night, he did not have a good temper towards pick.
“Right away,”pick answered simply.
“Then we will arrange a carriage for you now,”Kant replied casually.
Pick was slightly surprised by this attitude, but he really didn’t have a good impression of this group of outsiders, so he didn’t try to guess the opportunity for Kant to change his attitude.
“A person who keeps his word isn’t too bad.”Pick nodded slightly to Kant.
“That’s because you’re a man of your word.”Kant said without hiding anything, “Before we leave, shall we sit down and have a cup of tea together?”
“Do you have pastries?”Pick stood on the stairs and looked around the entire hall, sizing up the dishes on the table of the diners.
“Yes.”Kant smiled and said, “If you don’t mind, we can have tea and snacks in this hall while chatting.”
“As long as there’s food.”Pick slowly walked down the stairs and sat down at the tea table that Kant had pointed out.
“Go and ask the waiter in the kitchen to prepare a few pastries and order a pot of high-quality tea.”Kant knew that Abel’s resistance against pick was clear, so he continued to assign tasks to get rid of him.
“Yes, Your Majesty.”After arranging everything on the tea table, Abel walked up to the second floor by himself. When he turned his head to look in Kant’s direction, Kant and pick were already chatting back and forth.
“Keep a close eye on pick. If he makes any strange movements, come to the guest room immediately and inform me,”Abel instructed the soldier guarding the stairs.
“Yes, Captain Abel,”the Elven soldier immediately replied.
“What are your plans after you leave the town?”Kant asked after pouring tea for pick.
“Nothing,”pick answered casually as he looked forward to the pastries being served on the table. “I’m not thinking of staying in this town for long anyway.”
“Your parents must be quite troubled to have a child like you,”Kant said to pick as he took a sip of tea.
After hearing the topic about his parents, pick immediately sat up and replied, “My father is someone who cares about the world. Why should he care about the trivial things that happen to me?”
“It sounds like your father is quite a powerful figure.”Kant smiled gently.
“Yes.”Pick was very reluctant to talk about his father’s achievements in front of outsiders because his father had taught him since he was young that the achievements of others could not be used as a source of bragging, even if ‘others’were your family.
“What About Your Mother? Will she care about you?”Kant asked.
“I don’t think so.”Pick shook his head and said, “Mother is just an extremely common peasant woman. How could she think of what I’m experiencing now?”
Kant put down the Teacup and looked at pick. “Then your family is really interesting. Father is a powerful Beast Tamer, and mother is an ordinary peasant woman who cares about the harvest of the land.”
“It’s not interesting at all.”Pick glanced at Kant and curled his lips.
“Your parents are both extraordinary people in their respective fields. Otherwise, how could they have combined together to give birth to you?”Kant said, “You should be only fifteen or sixteen years old now. How many years have you been wandering outside?”
“Seven years?”Pick immediately lost interest in talking when he saw the waiter with tea and snacks walking toward them. After a rough recollection, he casually replied.
“Lord Kant, these are the pastries that Abel had instructed the kitchen to prepare.”After the waiter bent over to pick up his luggage, he placed small plates of pastries on the table one by one.
“Alright, thank you for your hard work.”Kant smiled and nodded at the waiter.
“I’ll take my leave.”The waiter seemed to treat pick as if he did not exist. After bowing to Kant, he turned around and left.
As for pick, he didn’t seem to notice the waiter’s rudeness at all. His gaze was glued to the tea on the table.
“Don’t mind me. Drink some tea first, and then you can start eating your own portion,”Kant said to pick.
“Okay.”Pick looked at Kant with a look of appreciation and nodded. He hurriedly drank a cup of tea to moisten his stomach. Then he casually picked up the pastry on the plate and ate it one bite at a time.
During the time Kant spent with pick, he found that, overall, pick was a more educated and domineering child. From the details of the meal, one could see what level of education he received when he was young. Such a temperament that was developed from a young age could not be acted out. Other than that, there was another point that was highly appreciated: a large part of Pick’s arrogance came from his confidence in his own strength. In this world, having such a character trait was a good thing.
“The waiter didn’t seem to see you just now. Aren’t you angry?”Kant broke the pastry in his hand into two halves and chewed slowly. After swallowing the first mouthful of delicious food, he spoke to pick.
“I’m not angry.”Pick shook his head indifferently and said, “I haven’t reached the point where everyone respects me.”
“Hehe.”Kant smiled gently and said, “How do you plan to make everyone respect you?”
“I haven’t thought about it. After all, everyone has different standards in their hearts,”pick replied.
“Then do you still want everyone to respect you? After knowing that there are many strange people in this world.”Kant wiped the crumbs on his fingertips with the handkerchief in his arms, looking at pick, he asked solemnly, “Maybe it will never come true in this life.”
“Yes.”Pick paused and then nodded. “I think maybe I can.”
“Yes.”Kant nodded and ended the conversation.
“Is my carriage ready?”Pick clapped his hands after finishing the pastries on his plate. He raised his head and asked Kant.
“Yes.”Kant looked at the door and replied.
“Then… Goodbye. No. It’s better not to see each other again.”Pick stood up from his seat and showed his first smile today.
“Don’t you want to see us? I really want to see you.”Kant held pick’s outstretched hand and said with a smile.
“Your operation this time was really ruthless.”Pick turned his gaze to the side, he told Kant, “However, don’t think that this matter will change the opinion of the Dragon Clan and the Midget clan. After all, outsiders are outsiders.”
“Well, thank you.”Kant accepted the suggestion of a human teenager and replied with a smile.
“There’s no need to talk about this.”Pick waved his hand and walked out of the inn alone. Before boarding the carriage.., he said to Kant, “Oh right, the poison effect of Yin Chi is not so easy to reverse. You have to find someone to watch over Bunduk while he is detoxifying his body.”
“Okay.”Kant nodded to pick.
“Let’s go.”Pick took one last look at Kant who was standing by the door sill, turned around and said to the coachman driving the carriage.
“Lord, sit tight.”The coachman shouted loudly when he saw pick enter the carriage.
“Bon Voyage!”Kant shouted at the back of the speeding carriage.
He didn’t know if pick had heard the last sentence.
Kant, who had recovered from his memories, turned his gaze to Bunduk.
“Do you hate pick?”Kant asked.
“No.”Bunduk was stunned, as if he didn’t expect Kant to ask such a question. But after he reacted. He immediately expressed his attitude firmly.
“I’m not sure. Maybe he never thought that he would die at his hands,”Bunduk said vaguely.
“Hehe.”Kant laughed softly and said, “Is it because he is young?”
“… No.”Bunduk lowered his head and denied, “Maybe the look in that Kid’s eyes was different from those warriors on the battlefield.”
“Yes.”After listening to Bunduk’s answer, Kant nodded and didn’t say anything else.
“If there is a chance, I would like to meet him again.”After a while, Bunduk said.
Kant looked at the scenery outside the window and was silent.
When the atmosphere in the room gradually became quiet, Bunduk heard Kant say, “We will meet again, right?”
The two quietly stayed in the main hall and drank tea until evening.
Chapter 896: the requests of the attendants
When Abel woke up in his own bed, the Sun had already set in the horizon.
The fine wine provided in the inn was not bad. At least for the moment, Abel did not have any signs of a headache.
“Why am I Asleep?”Abel smelled the alcohol on his body and immediately understood.
His body had become soft due to the effects of alcohol. Abel struggled to get up and changed into a set of clean clothes for himself.
When he walked to the bedroom door, the sound of Kant and Bunduk’s conversation could be heard in the main hall. Abel stood in front of the door and hesitated for a moment. His right hand, which was on the door handle, hung down.
After a while, he returned to his bed. He lay on the bed and stretched his body.
“AH.”Abel looked at the window in front of the bed and gradually fell into a trance.
He thought of Claremont. In the past few months, everything that had happened around him had been too hasty. Unknowingly, a long time had passed since he had met Kant and Bunduk.
And all of this should have started from the port of the Elf Kingdom.
At that time, Caradia had just been established. Kant sent a soldier across the desert to meet up with Abel and the others in the Elf Kingdom. That night, they rested in a hotel by the port. The Caradia soldier, who saw the sea for the first time, enjoyed themselves by the embankment. Until Abel personally called them back to the hotel restaurant for dinner..
Thinking back to what happened on the way to the volcano, Abel’s eyes couldn’t help but tear up.
It would have been great if Claremont had been able to get to where he was today. Countless casual conversations during dinner made Abel feel sorry for this youth who had resolutely joined the army.
Of the three of them, Claremont was the most qualified to become a high-ranking officer.
Abel made a decision in his heart. If he could return to the Elf Kingdom alive, he would definitely go to the border of Caradia. He would go and see the soldiers who were injured in the shipwreck, he would go and visit the lonely and lonely man in Claremont’s home.
“Abel, are you awake?”While Abel was still lying on the bed, lost in his thoughts, Bunduk unlocked the door of his bedroom and walked in. When he saw Abel’s face facing him again… Bunduk widened his eyes and said, “So you’re already awake. Hurry up and get up. We still have to go out.”
After hearing Bunduk’s words, Abel immediately sat up. He asked in surprise, “Go out? I didn’t hear His Majesty say that we need to go out today.”
“The leaders of the Midget clan, the dragon clan, the Gnome clan, and the other forces of the volcano have all arrived in the town, preparing to hold a meeting at the surveillance bureau. “We’ve just received a message. They’re waiting for us to rush over,”Bunduk explained patiently.
“I see. Then I’ll quickly start preparing.”Abel quickly tidied up his bed and hurried to the bathroom.
“King Kant asked me to send you a message: there’s no need to rush. The people from the monitoring station can wait for a while.”Bunduk glanced at Abel’s back and shouted at him.
Without waiting for Abel’s reply, Bunduk swaggered out of the guest room and returned to the main hall.
“What’s wrong? Is Abel Awake?”Kant asked Abel.
“He’s awake. But when I walked in, he was still lying on the bed daydreaming. I don’t know what he was daydreaming about.”Bunduk nodded. After sitting down on the chair, he replied to Kant.
“These past few days have been hard on Abel. Not only did he have to take care of you, he also had to accompany me in and out.”Kant glanced at the corridor leading to the bedroom and sighed.
“Mm.”In his heart, Bunduk naturally agreed with what Kant said. He nodded and replied, “Your Majesty, the matters on this island should be about to end soon.”
“It should be about to end.”Kant’s tone carried a hint of melancholy. He said softly, “We have stayed on this small island for long enough. Let’s make a simple resolution during tonight’s meeting.”
“Yes,”Bunduk answered with certainty.
After a while, Abel rushed out of his room. He asked Kant anxiously, “Your Majesty, do we need to call the soldier back to the inn? We don’t have anyone in the inn right now.”
“No need. The three of us are enough.”Kant shook his head gently, he replied to Abel, “This is a meeting, not a war. Even if there is a conflict, we can’t escape with just these dozens of soldiers. Why should we sacrifice the lives of the soldier?”
“Don’t worry.”Bunduk put his arm around Abel’s shoulder and said to him, “Now that my martial arts have returned, wouldn’t it be enough for us to Guarantee Your Highness’safety?”
“Then… Alright.”Abel finally compromised.
Kant and Bunduk looked at each other, stood up and walked out of the door.
The moment they opened the door of the guest room, they found that the door was full of waiters.
Kant looked at the leader of the group, Nitte, and asked in puzzlement, “What’s Wrong?”
“We heard that your Highness Kant is going to the inspection station…”Nitte said with difficulty.
“Yes.”Kant glanced at the waiter who came to inform him and Bunduk. After thinking for a while, he nodded to Nitte.
“We were wondering if we could ask your Highness Kant to do us a favor?”After Nitte’s words, the waiter standing beside him immediately bent down and bowed to Kant and the others. “Please, My Lords!”
“Tell us what you want us to do first.”Kant swept his eyes across the people in front of him and said indifferently.
“We hope that Lord Kant can help us keep this shop.”Nitte bowed and asked.
“What News Have you received?”Bunduk, who was standing behind Kant, asked.
“The boss seems to have been discovered by the GNOME soldiers outside the city. He is now being escorted back to the monitoring station.”Nitte said, “However, he has already told his identity to the soldier in charge. This shop will also be used as a place for the dark side to communicate and be handed over to the public for punishment.”
“Then why don’t you rent this shop back from the public?”Abel said. “After all, you have nothing to do with the connections your boss runs.”
“They will not allow us to continue doing business here.”Nitte shook his head heavily, he replied, “Although I don’t understand politics, I still know the principle of changing the dynasty. After this shop is handed over and confiscated, we will no longer interfere.”
“Yes.”After listening to Nate’s words, Kant nodded, he replied, “Many of you were raised by the boss. The boss also helped us a little before. Although the process was a little bumpy, I will agree to your request.”
