After Grenhal left, Yura asked him with a cheerful expression, “Youngwoo-ssi, you said you didnt want to go out with me”
Noticing that the gazes of the people around him werent good, he hastily said, “I dont like it because I have to go around everywhere.
I never said I didnt want to date Yura.”
“Isnt it the same thing” The unsuspecting Vantner questioned, and the other members of the 10 meritorious retainers poked him in the side.
Yura was staring at Grid. Her slightly wavy hair was tied up, reminiscent of an idol taking a photo with a beach backdrop.
There was a refreshing feeling.
It was good enough to make him forget the hot water.
“W-What is it”
He couldnt adapt to this beauty at all. She was like someone from a completely different world. Yura stared for a few seconds, and the blushing Grid avoided her gaze first.
“I understand now.” Yura also blushed and nodded.
“This is why Ive always been behind.”
“The dating—lets stop for a while.”
“Im going to become stronger.”
Yura was a single digit ranker.
Shenaturally exhausted her daily gameplay time limit.
Her passion for Satisfy was so enormous that she spent her spare time maintaining an optimal condition and gathering information. Of course, she wasnt special. The rankers, those who made money through Satisfy, and those who just enjoyed Satisfy invested most of their day into Satisfy. However, just because they spent the same amount of time in the game didnt mean they all did the same thing. Otherwise, the concept of a ranker itself wouldnt have existed.
Yura thought that to become like Grid, she had to focus on Satisfy the entire time her brain was awake. She realized how much of a luxury it was to think about what to do with her favorite person today. Yura was making a determined expression and opening a gate to hell when Grid shouted, “Dont misunderstand! Im just lucky!”
Luck followed him.
Up to last year, Grid hadnt wanted to hear this. They thought he had grown to this stage just because of luck... Where was there a person in this world more unlucky than him His current position was purely a result of his effort. Grid believed so. Every time he saw himself, he felt disgusted by the netizens and experts who said he was just lucky.
He thought they were degrading his efforts and accomplishments.
That wasnt the case anymore. Grid only recognized it after achieving so much. It was true that he was lucky. Being born with the strength to not give up, the fact that Satisfy was released, obtaining Pagmas book, and meeting good people… All of this was luck that he enjoyed.
Now Grid acknowledged it easily. He wasnt offended by the assessment that he was lucky. It was true.
His gap with Yura It wasnt a difference in effort. The difference was the number of times luck came to him. Grid insisted on it.
“Is there a person who doesnt have luck” Yura denied it.
“Luck follows everyone.
However, few people are able to capture and take advantage of the luck that comes to them.” Yura called Grid\'s luck an ability or skill. “I saw you and got to know you.
I probably missed a lot of luck.
It is because Im not as focused.
I probably wouldve given up, unlike you.”
The expressioncompromise was more appropriate thangiving up. Even so, Yura didnt use it. It was shameful to bring out the wordcompromise in front of Grid who faced all types of hardships and adversities. Yuras body started to pass through the gate to hell. “At the very least, Ill come back as a person who doesnt burden you.”
This was the signal.
“Im going as well.”
“Then Ill be going.”
“Ill see you later.
Dont worry, Ill keep in touch.”
“Grid, please don\'t get into trouble”
All of the 10 meritorious retainers apart from Lauel said goodbye to Grid. Their eyes were filled with a deep desire. Rather than looking at Grids back forever, they were eager to see the world that Grid was looking at together.
It would be a long separation. Grid intuitively sensed this and showed a sad expression. He wondered if his development had alienated his colleagues.
Chris scoffed at him, “Have you forgotten Our goal was once to be the supreme.”
“Are we has-been just because we didnt meet our goal We have our own pride and have to prove our qualifications.
Isnt that right”
“Be stronger until I come back.
The moment I return, Ill be applying for a duel so be nervous.”
Apart from Yura and Faker, everyone owned territory. Yet on this day, all of them gave up their territories, returning the rights of a lord. They broke the shackles holding them. The 10 meritorious retainers, who had many responsibilities, were now able to focus on their personal growth.
Lauel spoke to Grid, who was left alone in the office, “Grid, they arent weak enough for you to worry about.
Why dont you focus on your work”
“Of course, as a blacksmith.
Additionally...” Lauel\'s gaze turned outside the office. A small shadow was visible. It was the road that Lord used to take Kasim back.
“Wouldnt it be nice to spend time with your family” Lauel asked.
“The years pass very quickly.
Prince Lord will be turning 15 in less than four years.
Until then, please spend a lot of time with him.”
Once he turned 15, Lord would have all types of constraints placed on him. As a genius of the continent, Lord was system certified as a super-named talent.
However, would Lord remain a power of the Overgeared Kingdom until the end Maybe he would want to go on a trip or become crooked like the imperial princes. The role of a parent was great.
“Aigoo, my Lord! Chuu! Chuuu!”
Lauel wanted Grid to be cautious about Lord, but Grid didnt care. Lords future Lord would decide for himself. Grid just wanted to love his child.
“Have you been doing well”
The white skin that didnt burn even when rolling in the sun every day was soft. Lords fluffy cheeks and soft hair rubbed against Grids face. It soothed the emptiness that was caused by the 10 meritorious retainers leaving.
Lord didnt hate it either. Now he was 11 years old, and Grid had been worried that puberty would come. The little boy was understanding and felt admiration rather than resenting his father who was always away.
“I tried to listen to Mothers words.
I eat well and study hard.”
“Yes, you did very well.
With black hair, blue eyes, high noise, and slightly raised mouth, Lord had an ideal mixture of his parents looks. Grid hugged the pretty Lord and kissed his cheeks. “It was a big achievement to heal Kasim.
You saved Kasim.”
“Master is my friend and teacher.
Dont praise me for doing what I had to,” Lord said with a resolute expression.
Grid nodded with a smile.
“Yes, you have to cherish your bonds.”
“Aunt Ruby told me to treat everyone with care.”
“That is true.
Everyone is precious to someone so they are all precious people.
Help if you see someone who is going through difficulties.”
Grid was saying this
The early members of the Overgeared Guild, including Zednos and Laella. Those, who had been appointed as new lords after the 10 meritorious retainers left, came to Grids office and were surprised. In any case, Grid ignored them and held up Lord to the window. The view of the city unfolded, and countless people could be seen.
“However, dont be nice to everyone.
Then you will be a pushover...
No, if you give out too much one-sided help then the other person can become lazy or you might find yourself tired.”
He could understand even if Grid talked like a dog. Grid could see why the teachers in every field praised Lord. The thrilled Grid was excited. “I will be in the smithy from now on.
Why dont you come with me”
He naturally thought that Lord would come along. Yet...
“I want to watch Father work, but unfortunately, I have a previous engagement.
“Previous engagement With who”
Was he talking about the group of Rebeccas Daughters candidates It must be busy dealing with hundreds of girlfriends with one body. He admired Lord, who received all types of education yet didnt forget to date his girlfriends. Grid nodded while feeling a bit sad.
“Then it cant be helped.
I will cherish my bonds like Father has taught.”
By the way, who are you dating today”
Grid remembered several names and faces among Lords girlfriends.
Among them, there were around 10 who were the prettiest, and Grid wondered if it was one of them. While Grid was still trying to figure out who might be his future daughter-in-law, Lord brought out an unexpected name.
In Grids mind, all types of imaginary things unfolded. Then it happened the moment he couldnt endure his anger and opened his mouth again.
“Hurry! Leave now!” Zednos created a wind barrier to separate Grid and Lord before pushing at Lords back. Zednos didnt want the harsh words that would soon pop out of Grids mouth to contaminate the young boys ears and spirit.
“Yes, Ill be going,” Lord politely said goodbye and left the office.
The moment Zednos lowered the wind, Grids swearing turned the office upside down. “XX!! How could this happen!!”
Grid grabbed Zednos by the collar and shook him. “I know how beautiful, kind, and wonderful Sua is! However, she is a pervert!”
“I was wondering why the pervert had been silent for a while.
It turns out she was reaching out for my son Eh”
“What the hell did she do to such a young and pure child!”
“What Dishonor It is a dishonor!”
understanding...” (TL: They both start with the same character in Korean)
He was suffocating. Zednos, who almost experienced the worst death, was barely released. He clicked his tongue at Grids strength that he had never seen before and explained, “She cares for Lord like a child, like a nephew.
Faker said that when Lord was mentally tired from all his lessons, she took care of him and this brought them closer.”
Satisfy had many behind-the-scenes stories. The opening was reminiscent of the contents in morning dramas and ancient myths. Thus, he had been worried.
Fortunately, it wasnt the case. It was too much to tell the story of a perverted adult woman. The relieved Grid got rid of all his dirty imaginations.
He asked his colleagues who had been appointed as the new lords of the eight territories to work hard before heading to the smithy.
Finally, the moment to create the mineral was here.
