Strictly speaking, Black Soul Messenger was a salesperson, but with different personalities. The degree of freedom was relatively high. Therefore, if another Black Soul Messenger encountered this situation, the resolution method would probably differ.
But as the club’s maid, then there was only one way to deal with it.
As the club’s maid, her responsibility included serving the master and maintaining the safety and dignity of the master. It was equivalent to instinct too. You Ye figured it out too. What an abnormal behavior for Eric to allow his subordinate to provoke the club.
Will Eric have such poor control over his subordinate? Can this guy who has devoured countless nightmares and knows the evil of people’s hearts fail to calculate his subordinate’s mind?
What is his plan? Are there any other purposes hidden behind it?
But why does it matter?
A hundred years ago, some people overestimating themselves thought that they could wipe out the club by mobilizing all the power they possessed. However, in reality, the previous club owner nurtured them for a better harvest. Many Black Soul Messengers died in battle. It appeared like a significant loss for the club. Sadly, those dead Black Soul Messengers were just cannon fodder. It was just a kind of “performance indicator” held by the previous generations, alternative recycling means for the many Black Soul Messengers.
The current club owner would probably not use the same operation method or even embark on a path different from the previous generations. However, there were many more possibilities too.
But why would it matter?
There was only one thing You Ye knew. Her master was being offended. Even if it was merely verbal, saying such a thing meant there was such an intent.
It did not matter if it was just probing or if it was malicious. It had nothing to do with the situation.
The black flame formed a long and narrow sword in You Ye’s hand. The so-called battle stance was completed in an instant.
‘Amaterasu Omikami’ only took one of the stone steps. Indeed, she just raised her leg and took a step up. By then, she was still charging her attack. Probably by giving her an extra second or even half a second, she could unleash the technique she mustered.
In reality, the story did not go on in this manner. The cross-shaper sword which the Black Flame manifested had directly pierced Amaterasu Omikami’s shoulder.
Amaterasu Omikami’s eyes widened. Her illusion shattered in an instant. She could not maintain the appearance of ‘Amaterasu,’ and she had restored her true face. It was a girl in a kimono, Miki.
The black flame’s power that burst in Miki’s body was like a volcanic eruption. It even gave her the illusion that she would be burned into crisp in an instant.
However, there was more than one sword!
Once her left shoulder was pierced, her right shoulder was also pierced at the same time. A black light flashed, which immediately collapsed her throat! The three different attacks seemed to be in no sequence, seemingly taking place at the same time. On the other hand, Miki only mustered a move.
Strictly speaking, Miki was not an actual entity. She was born from nightmares and lived by devouring nightmares. She had a lot of similarities to Eric. However, not to mention the terrifying wounds on the left and right shoulders, Miki could not even make any sound when her throat collapsed.
What was erased was not her speaking ability. Her origin ability related to communicating had long gone.
The girl in the kimono fell to her knees on the stairs with unprecedented horror.
The black flame cast by the maid was retrieved. She glanced at Miki blankly, “Speak no evil. Please pay attention to what is coming out of your mouth next time. If it happens once again, I will erase you from the root.”
The maid looked forward again and said calmly, “Mr. Eric, please lecture your subordinate.”
Modesty was only for the club’s guest or the guest in the process of trading; no one else.
“I will, for sure.”
Eric’s figure came from the void. As an intruder with almost one-third of the almighty Yan Wuyue’s world law, no place in the Yan Wuyue world could stop him from coming in theory.
“I’m so sorry.” Eric came to Miki’s side. “I have spoiled this kid too much. Sometimes when I spoil too much, the kid does something outrageous.”
But after that, You Ye just walked directly behind Luo Qiu. After all, the apology should be directed to the master, not her. She did not want to upstage the main attention.
“In this case, I won’t treat this lady’s injury.” Luo Qiu nodded.
Although it was just a small effort, it was his lifespan that needed to be spent. Even if his current lifespan permitted any spendthrift behavior, he thought You Ye would not be happy with it.
“Yeah, that’s what it should be.” Eric glanced at Miki. The severely injured girl in the kimono showed a complicated and guilty expression at this moment.
“Regarding this immodest behavior, it is indeed my fault.” Eric shook his head gently at Miki, “To express my apology, after this transaction is completed, I will add another fifty true souls plus the original price as an apology.”
Luo Qiu didn’t refuse the gift, smiled, and said, “Thank you very much, then.”
If the customer was satisfied and wanted to give more, there was no reason not to accept it. Otherwise, it seemed improper. The club took care of customers the most.
“Let’s make the appointed time two days later.” Eric hugged Miki in his arms and glanced at Luo Qiu, “I look forward to the happy cooperation.”
Until he left, Eric didn’t show any angry expression.
At this time, the maid said coldly, “Master, the previous master once said: Eric is a suitable successor. But, I don’t like him.”
‘I don’t like him.’ She can already express her emotions like this.
“I think he is quite an easygoing person to chat with, despite his secretive attitude.” Luo Qiu just smiled and didn’t make any more comments. It was something the previous club owner had to consider, but nothing to do with Luo Qiu. The current club owner was him now, which even the previous club owner could not strip him off from that.
The club owner’s identity belonged to the current one in office unless Luo Qiu voluntarily gave up or transferred it through other means.
With that, Luo Qiu turned around and looked at the end of the stone steps. At the end of the path leading to the shrine, a slightly thin figure stood still.
The shrine’s witch.
She lowered her head and watched quietly. The moment Boss Luo turned to look at her, the two eyes met unexpectedly. After that, the witch didn’t say anything before she turned around and left.
“Probably she isn’t looking at me.” Boss Luo smiled slightly. At the moment Luo Qiu flipped his hand, a black card had appeared in his palm and soon faded away.
You Ye then glanced at the Unripe Rice Village at the mountain foot. She shook her head, “It’s a pity. The Nagato household has quite a few suitable investors.”
“I want to open Eric’s box.” Luo Qiu shook his head, “Unfortunately, this is only a temporary mortgage. Windchaser… Let’s go and deliver the gift to Windchaser since he has not entered the village.”
“Okay.” The maid smiled gracefully.
