“You look gorgeous today,” Arden Gilmour said .

“Thank you, Sir,” Emelda said with a sweet smile .

“But those makeups doesn’t suit you . ”

“I’m sorry, Sir…” she said, lowered her head .

The man chuckled and shook his head as he led the lady as they walked through the bleak underground corridor .

“You’re cute . Much better mannered than your girlfriend . He definitely loves the experience you’ll give tonight . ”

Emelda nodded as a reply . She had prepared a ‘Forgetting Pill’ to erase her memories after today, so it didn’t matter how horrifying the matter she had to experience tonight .

The corridor was longer than she thought . And the underground much bigger than she expected too . Emelda heard before the underground was used by resistance force thousands of years ago as their hidden base . It was only a hundred years ago explorers discovered the underground and since then, the hidden site was sold and changed hands from tycoons to tycoons .

“Sir . Is it okay for me to satisfy my curiosity?” she asked for permissions to chit-chat away .

“What is it? Shoot . ”

“Did you buy the entire underground base just to…”

Arden Gilmour chuckled . “I even struggled a lot Tiramikal Merchant Guild’s share just for this . Pulled a lot of strings here and there too . Well, I had lots of money . But it doesn’t matter . Friendship always comes first . ”

Emelda didn’t know what to say after that .

She just read from the documents before she agreed to this task, Sir Arden Gilmour was on extended leave to attend his personal matter . He sent messages to organization’s headquarter and said he need some intel regarding the pillars in the sky and asked the higher-ups to send him some capable female members to help him on some “matters” .

That was the behind story why Emelda and Serryl were here . But they didn’t know what was the strange man up to before .

“Well, later if you meet with my friend, remember to pretend embarrassed and afraid, okay? My friend loves a timid and submissive girl . ”

“I’ll remember that, Sir . ”

Emelda didn’t have to pretend . She was already embarrassed and afraid .

Not long after that, they arrived at a heavily guarded district in the underground . Full armored guards were stationed and patrolling along the corridors . All of them wore uniformed steel helms to hide their faces and held two-meters magical iron halberds on their hands . Their movements were rigid but structured, left the impressions that they were not some casual guards one could mess with . She thought they were better than bastard bodyguard who played around with Serryl’s body .

Guards bowed their giant and armored body slightly when Arden Gilmour walked pass them .

As they walked deeper in the district, Emelda saw more and more guards patrolling . She also realized the steel-doored rooms they passed were actually occupied jails which herself didn’t know what kind of people were imprisoned this desert underground of nowhere . A strange premonition crept in as they moved deeper and deeper toward the heart of the prison, and Emelda kept getting goosebumps as the guards she met became sharper and fiercer .

As Emelda was getting near toward their destination, a rare survival instinct kicked in inside her heart . Pumped adrenaline and made her heart thumped hard .

She took a deep breath to calm herself, but coughed instead because of the bad ventilation system . Emelda didn’t know what to do . She even became restless as the terror grasped into her, telling the timid woman to come back to wherever she came from .

They stopped before a giant door that led to a spacious, empty room .

It wasn’t empty, exactly . A two meters of solid black box laid at the heart of the room . Filled with enigmatic runes and other nonsensical magic calligraphy .

The pale man smiled upon seeing the box . He checked his key chains as he approached the black box .

“You’ll meet my friend . Here! He may bad mannered a little . But deep down, he would always treasure his companies and friends . Like me!”

Arden Gilmour opened the black box with his keys .

And something fast and deadly jumped out of the box in an instant!



A flash of iron line smashed on Arden Gilmour’s body, sent him rolled on the floor .

The iron line was a chain, radiate the sinister and threatening aura as it appeared to be unmoved by the oppressive mood . One could see its ancient rustiness that could intimidate people to their death . After moments of freeze inside the soundless cold atmosphere, it slithered back into the black box like a snake, left red tracks of fresh blood on the cold stone floor .

Emelda was so shocked that she fell down from her high heels boots .

Then, a pool of blood formed around Arden Gilmour’s unmoving body . His fingers twitched .

She gulped her saliva .

The room was silent .

And Emelda thought for a moment the mysterious and eccentric Sir Arden Gilmour was… dead .

Well, the smashing chain might seem deadly . But the man wasn’t dead . He wasn’t furious either . Instead, he chuckled .

“Hehehe . ”

That was the most creepy chuckle Emelda ever heard in her life .

Drap drap drap . Drap drap drap .

Two guards came into the room to carry the damaged Arden Gilmour .

“He’s in bad mood,” the man said . His bones were broken and his torso was destroyed . “Although he may bite a bit… but please be gentle with him, okay . ”

Arden Gilmour gave Emelda an apologetic smile before the guards took him out of the room .

Emelda’s body shook all over as Sir Arden Gilmour left her alone, in the front of the black box and whatever monster was jailed inside .

She took a peek inside . The black box was too dark for her to see . All she could make of were a bunch of iron chains and a pair of glowing green eyes, glared from the shadow .
