Chapter 50. Trap
It was late at night when we finally reached the mainland of America and got off the plane.
Jeong Dae-sik got into the limousine prepared for him. It was my first time riding a limousine, and it was so much better than what I saw in the movies. The high-quality leather seats were already as comfortable as lying on the bed.
Liz opened champagne and poured it to Jeong Dae-sik and Kim Tae-hee, offering toasts.
“Welcome to America. Normally, you would have received a great welcome, but since it’s an unofficial schedule, I can’t take you outside like this.”
“no. This is enough.”
“If there is anything you want, please let me know. I will provide anything.”
Liz and Jeong Dae-sik sip a sip of champagne after bumping a glass with Liz, who was smiling brightly. On the other hand, Kim Tae-hee, who drank champagne at once , put down her empty glass and asked a question.
“But where are you going now?”
Liz answered immediately.
“I’m on my way to the Palmer house.”
Kim Tae-hee frowned.
“Are you going to Palmer?”
“I could stay at a hotel, but Palmer actively offered to treat Jung Dae-sik himself. Charity auctions are held there anyway, and above all, Mr. Kwang is supposed to stay there.”
“When will he arrive?”
“I arrived this morning, so you must have already reached Palmer Street.”
The limousine drove for some time past the gorgeous Las Vegas night view. It wasn’t long before Jeong Dae-sik was able to see a magnificent mansion in the middle of the desert.
Liz shrugged her shoulders at the exclamation of Jeong Dae-sik.
“This is just one of many properties owned by the Palmers. Palmer Street mansions are dotted around the world, and the Comet Mansion here is the newest and most up-to-date. There are many new technologies that are hard to see. for example…….”
As we entered the road leading to the mansion, the surrounding landscape changed in an instant. The desert roadside was transformed into a field full of flowers, and the aurora danced in the sky. Seeing that scene, Taehee Kim muttered.
“Is this a welcome stone?”
“okay. close, right? By the way, this landscape is constantly changing.”
As Liz said, after a while, the field turned into a forest, and fireflies flew in all directions. It soon turned into snow and became a primeval forest covered with snow all around. While being mesmerized by the ever-changing scenery in that way, the limousine arrived in front of the iron fence. There were scanners on either side of the fence, and when Liz poked her head out of her car window, her face was automatically recognized.
– Thank you for visiting Comet Mansion. Catherine Elizabeth Garrett. She was accompanied by two companions.
Soon the fence opened and the limousine slid inside. It was not a welcome, but in the middle of a well-manicured garden, I saw a large fountain. It was hard to imagine being in the middle of the desert.
As the limousine circled the square where the fountain was placed and stopped in front of the mansion, a large door opened as if carved out of a whole emerald, and someone appeared from inside.
“Five! You’re finally here!”
The man who jumped out of the butler-looking employee with tabi feet was a middle-aged man with gray hair mixed with gray hair and a handsome beard. He shook hands lightly with Liz as he got off the limousine and hugged him.
“It’s been a while, Liz.”
“Iknow, right. How have you been?”
“I am always the same. Then this person…”
As the man’s gaze turned to Jeong Dae-sik, Liz introduced him.
“This is none other than Jeong Dae-sik. Next to him is his colleague Kim Tae-hee.”
Jeong Dae-sik shook hands with him and said.
“Hello, this is Jeong Dae-sik.”
“Nice to meet you, haha! nice to meet you. I am Jade Palmer. Feel free to call me Jade. Can I call you Mr. Jeong?”
“Call me as you please.”
Jade, who also greeted Kim Tae-hee, took the lead and said.
“As soon as I heard the news that the All-in-One was born, I thought that I would like to meet him at least once. If I could invite Mr. Jung, I thought it would be okay to gift some of the things I had saved from my collection, so I think I will visit you first!”
Jade greeted Jeong Dae-sik with a smile. Jeong Dae-sik said, being careful not to be swept away by his exhilarating atmosphere.
“As you may already know, Jade-san has some weapons that I need.”
“ah! That’s it. Did I say magic warfare?”
“Even so, I only have one pair, so I expected that there would be other parts. But Daesik Jeong, you should have had it! What parts did you say you had?」
“I have a left vampire and a right quis.”
“okay. I’d like to see you right away… but it’s late at night, so I’d better take a break.”
Jade made his way through the interior of the splendid mansion to the guest room. As if to prove Liz’s words that it was made with the latest technology, most of the materials in the mansion were made from dungeon resources, so it was very different. The floor was covered with luminous stones instead of marble, and the vase was decorated with living jewel flowers, and a stuffed wyvern surrounded by white feathers was floating on the ceiling.
“Sleep here tonight, and we’ll see you again tomorrow morning.”
Jeong Dae-sik asked what he wanted to check before going to bed.
“I’m sorry, but there must be another guest in this mansion.”
“Tomorrow is a charity auction, so a lot of customers are here.”
“A hunter who came from Korea with me.”
“Oh~! Mr. Gwang? Yes. He is also here.”
Jade’s eyes twinkled with a meaningful expression.
“He also said that I need something. The specifics are privacy, so why not ask yourself tomorrow morning? If it’s okay with you, I’ll send you a message asking if you’d like to have breakfast together.”
Jeong Dae-sik reconfirmed the fact that Gwangpil-doo was here, and nodded that he would know.
“Your co-workers will be staying in the next room. Then take a good rest.”
I took a limousine on a private plane, but I was kind of tired, so Jeong Dae-sik fell terrified to lie down on the bed. I was sleeping like crazy, and suddenly I felt a strange presence. Having a feeling like his instinct, Jeong Dae-sik immediately spurred the seat and rolled his body to the side. Then the bed he was lying on moved with a strange noise.
Jeong Dae-sik rubbed his sleepy eyes without hesitation. Before he could come to his senses, something hit him.
Jeong Dae-sik, who had clashed with the groin and rolled forward, opened his mouth wide when he saw the messy room. It was like entering the Disney world. Anybody would think so when they saw the chair running on all fours and swinging his armrests.
It wasn’t just the chairs. The bed had changed like a mimic, and the decoration was attacking Jeong Dae-shik, swinging the candlestick like a weapon. Jeong Dae-sik kicked the bed while avoiding the flying candlestick, but then his foot got caught in a gap in the mattress.
Jeong Dae-sik smashed the bed with his fist and tried to run out the window. However, the curtains on the window wrapped around his whole body. I ripped it apart and opened the window wide to hear giggles of laughter from the lower terrace.
“Kick Kick… Ahahaha!”
Holding his belly and smiling, it was a child who looked only about ten years old. Seeing that he is Asian and speaks Korean, he must have been Korean. Jeong Dae-sik widened his eyes when he realized that he had caused all this chaos.
“What are you?”
“What would an all-in-one capable person get angry about!”
The child, who let out a sarcastic sound, ran back and forth and tried to run away. Jeong Dae-sik immediately called entropy in order to give his heart a broken heart.
“Entropy, hold on to that bastard!”
Entropy flew through the air and tried to snatch the child. But as the entropy drew closer, she tried to strike the entropy as the street lamps lined up along the terrace bent.
‘Is that kid’s ability?’
The little girl quickly turned the corner and disappeared from Jeong Dae-sik’s view. Jung Dae-sik, who jumped onto the terrace thinking that she could not miss it, quickly ran around the corner with her feet. Then, a scene unfolded before my eyes as if I had entered the world of Transformers, not Disney.
Jeong Dae-sik saw the robot suddenly appeared and flew away in fright. The robot kicked his fist to the spot where he was standing and followed Jeong Dae-sik with a thump. When he saw a robot that looked like it had been reassembled from several cars, he clapped and said how excited the little boy was.
“Fight! Because I want to see what kind of ability the all-in-one has.”
Jeong Dae-sik grinded it north-south.
‘The author’s style…’
It was at that time when I was clenching my fist to show off the spicy taste.
Someone ran out from the back of the building and put a threat.
“Can’t you stop?”
The face was familiar.
Jeong Dae-sik confirmed the opponent and called his name with a sense of longing.
“What is seolyu?”
Seol Yu-ran, who was angry with the little boy, saw Jeong Dae-sik and smiled coldly. As a wizard, she usually wore flashy makeup, but it was now night, so it was difficult to recognize her because she had a bare face.
“long time no see.”
Seol Yu-ran, who greeted him briefly, grabbed the little boy’s ear and whispered softly.
“If you don’t put your toy back to normal soon, I’ll take it naked and hang it upside down.”
The crying child swung his hand at those words, and surprisingly, the robot was dismantled. To be precise, I would say that it returned to the original shape of the car.
The cars that landed like falling on the pavement were all expensive. Perhaps he had brought Jade’s horse with him. Whether that guess was correct, Jade, who ran after hearing the commotion, shouted from behind.
“Oh my God, my car!”
Not only Jade, but Kim Tae-hee and Liz were all running out.
The little boy was a little hesitant at the pouring gaze of reproach and made excuses.
“The den is nowhere to be found! I’ve put it all back to normal!”
Squeezing the little boy’s cheeks tightly, Seol Yu-ran apologized on behalf of the child.
“I think my kid surprised me.”
“What kind of lightning bolt is this?”
“I couldn’t sleep at the sound of the All-in-One coming, so I was excited the whole time. I was told that I was being monitored. I don’t think it’s suitable for watching children.”
Seol Yu-ran let out a sigh of relief and complained. Jeong Dae-shik doubted why Seol Yu-ran was here rather than listening to him. Originally, she was a Zodiac raider, so it’s very likely that she followed the maniacs. As if to prove that guess, Gwangpil-doo appeared from the other side.
Hearing Gwangpildu’s call, a little boy named Kwangyeongsik smoked a tantrum. When Jeong Dae-sik heard the child’s name, he thought about what might happen.
