“Praise you, the Great Lord Charlotte.” The demon-like thing exclaimed at this time, “You’re really our guiding light.”
Charlotte stretched and yawned at this time. “I was worried that nothing would happen to Bucky, so I came here to take a look. Now that I see something went wrong with him, I feel relieved. Then, let’s go back and replenish our sleep! Lack of sleep during the day will make my skin worse.”
With that, the mysterious Charlotte and the demon-like servant left.
“It shouldn’t be? Why did Charlotte’s divination be fulfilled this time?” Bucky scratched his head and couldn’t understand why this “guiding light” would extinguish!
However, compared to Charlotte’s divination this time, Bucky was more concerned about why there were so many agents rushing out suddenly!
It stood to reason that Lucifer’s underlings prepared the phone he used. Although those fellows were dangerous and treacherous, at least the quality of the things they used was excellent. So the officials couldn’t locate him through the phone.
Could it be that Cage leaked my location?
Bucky quickly denied this idea because he and Cage stuck to each other all day long. This fellow spent the night with a female demon beast and fell unconscious. There was no way for him to do anything at all.
Then, there was only one possibility left. His underlings were the problem!
Bucky kicked the trash can that he had just passed by annoyedly. He was depressed. As expected, I need to pay back the due I owe! It seems after I betrayed Roger and buried him in the theater, it’s my turn to get crossed right away!
As Bucky ruminated in the thoughts of being betrayed, he became panic-stricken.
The person he called for help was a brother who had been with him for more than ten years. But such a brother betrayed his whereabouts in the end. Things had gone out of his control!
During his imprisonment, he handed most of his business to this confidant. Since this man had betrayed him, God knows how much his property was embezzled without him noticing.
I knew how nice it would be to let me stay in prison forever!
“He’s over there! Hurry! Stop him from the front!”
The sudden shout startled Bucky, who was in deep thoughts. Fuck, I can’t run away from those agents in the end.
Bucky ran with his life, but he was already gasping for breath after a 100 meters sprint.
No, it can’t end like this!
I have been enjoying my time in prison. Unfortunately, I didn’t exercise enough in the past few years.
What exactly lies in front of me?
Suddenly, Bucky’s world dimmed down all of a sudden. Then, it suddenly lit up, bringing him to a place with warm lights. It was as if he had traveled through a century. Bucky noticed he was in a lobby decorated in an old style.
There seemed to be the sound of wind chimes reverberating.
“Fellow customer, do you want to buy something?” At the front counter, a black-haired young man looked at Bucky politely. A woman next to him, who was wiping an old record player with a rag, stopped at the same time.
It was like entering another world.
This place was quiet and refreshing, making him want to stay here for a long time. For a moment, Bucky couldn’t even feel the summer heat.
He opened his mouth in astonishment, then turned his head and looked at the old pinewood door. Outside this place seemed to be a different world.
This architectural style was the style that only the slums would adopt. But he clearly remembered that he was escaping for his life in the city.
But in short, I have temporarily resolved the danger?
Bucky breathed a sigh of relief.
At this time, the young man in front of the counter walked out slowly in a detour. His gaze was still fixed at Bucky. There seemed to be a hint of doubt and even curiosity.
Bucky met the young man’s gaze unexpectedly. There was an unspeakable sensation in his heart. This kind of gaze reminded him of Lucifer subconsciously.
In his memories, Lucifer had once looked at him like this.
That kind of indifference in the depths of the young man’s gaze was like the sense of supremacy when looking down at the ants.
“En, customer, there seems to be some kind of mark left on you.” The young man smiled slightly at this time, “Usually, customers like you can’t walk into this place, but…”
“But what?” Bucky heard the word ‘mark’ mentioned by the young man and couldn’t help but have his heart trembled. Did he see through something?
“Please have a seat first. We have ample time for a chat. How about letting us serve you a cup of scented tea to quench your thirst?” The young man smiled slightly, then put his hands to his ears and clapped gently.
The wooden stool that was resting on the side slowly moved to Bucky’s side. Then, the young man gave an inviting gesture.
Bucky dropped his jaws at this moment. Why is this scene so familiar?
“Don’t be nervous, customer.” The beautiful woman put down the rag. She smiled and said, “This is a place where we can sell everything. No matter what you need, you can find it here. However, those transactions require special things.”
Before she could finish her words, Bucky shivered and said quickly, “For example, use my soul or something, right?”
“This is one of the capitals that customers can use to make transactions.” The woman smiled slightly.
Bucky moved his lips at this moment, “Sure enough, it’s like this… this familiar feeling…”
The young man and the beautiful woman looked at each other curiously but saw that Bucky suddenly kicked the stool in front of him and sneered, “Huh! Do you think I’m a three-year-old kid!? I have long seen through your petty tricks!”
As he spoke, he reached out his hand and pointed at the young man suddenly, “Hmph, most probably you are a monster with sharp teeth, four legs, and a terrifying mouth!”
Then, he pointed at the beautiful woman again and snorted coldly again, “And you! Do you think you are beautiful!? No, you are a corpse with abscesses all over your body, exuding a foul stench and only a few hairs on your head! So!”
“So?” The young man frowned.
Bucky put his arms around his chest and snorted coldly, “Stop lying! I’m not listening!”
