Come Here, Tyrant! - Chapter 86
Fortunately, the line quickly shrank. As she waited, holding back a yawn, a commotion was heard behind her.
“No, no. Don’t.”
“Kiing! Kiing! Kiing!”
“You can’t be stubborn. Monsters can get sick if they eat human food.”
She could see the back of the boy who was sternly swearing at the monster.
The child in a luxurious black velvet robe stimulated her interest.
‘Are you an aspiring wizard?’
No matter how small a monster was, its nature was evil. Still, he was not nervous at all.
A smile appeared on Annie’s lips.
‘He is pretty good.’
The boy blocked the front of the monster that was trying to avoid him and rushed towards the Honey Peanut. It wasn’t enough; he grabbed the tail with his small hand.
‘Isn’t this… a bit dangerous?’
Just as expected.
A red tint flew from the monster’s eyes, which had widened. As the boy mumbled something, the energy from the monster’s body subsided.
“Let’s go back. I will go and feed you.”
As he spoke, the monster lowered its eyes as if it had lost.
The boy who stroked the monster’s body turned his body. At that moment, Annie opened her lips.
The same was true with the boy that was surprised. His red eyes widened as he met Annie.
‘Then, his name is….’
The surprised boy covered his mouth with both hands. Then, the monster that escaped from his hand ran to the stall.
“What else is this!”
The monster moved at high speed in the air and absorbed the honey peanuts.
The surrounding wizards tried to use the capture magic, but even the monster managed to evade that.
The boy’s attempt to catch the monster was also thwarted due to the hiccups.
‘How do I stop that?’
She couldn’t even use magic, so she couldn’t help.
‘But there must be a way.’
Annie was worried and found a cloth that had fallen under the kiosk. Holding the fabric, she pushed the stand on the floor.
As the honey peanuts fell on the floor, the monster’s eyes lit up.
As the monster descended at a speed that was hard for the eyes, Annie saw it and covered it.
The boy, who had been staring blankly at the urgent call, quickly raised his hand. The cloth fluttered loudly several times, but the monster couldn’t get out easily because the two of them held it tight.
Of course, the help of the magicians who used the capture magic from behind was also excellent.
When the boy mumbled something, the cloth stopped moving.
‘Is it working?’
Annie looked at the boy and asked.
“Did you get it?”
“Ha, thank God… isn’t it?”
Annie, who was about to be relieved, smiled awkwardly.
Her face stings from the glare around her—the owner of the stand, the wizard around, and even the guests that lined up.
The bewildered boy bowed his head.
“I, um. Sorry. I didn’t take good care of the child.”
Annie sprang up and bowed her back politely towards the people.
Only the monster poked its face out of the furoshiki, pretending it didn’t know anything and blinked its eyes innocently.
Having settled the chaos, Ejed became very nervous.
What kind of fate was this? Encountering Annie this far away!
Usually, he would be delighted, but he was even more embarrassed as this was the situation.
In the meantime, Annie was a big help for Ejed in that situation. Seeing her apologizing with all her sincerity, the wizards’ anger was quickly tempered.
When he apologized to Annie, she stopped and said it was okay, then she smiled.
In the end, the two cleaned up the mess around and went to Annie’s carriage.
As Annie tapped the forehead of the monster with her index finger, the monster’s tail drooped.
She burst into laughter and asked, stroking the monster.
“What is the name?”
He hadn’t decided yet, so he couldn’t give an honest answer. He assumed it was a monster that lost its owner, but this guy was a wild monster.
He went to the guard, but there was no result. Annie, who did not know the situation, asked while her eyes glanced around.
“Aren’t you going to throw it away?”
“Oh, no. How…”
“It’s a joke. Well, please give this child a pretty name, Jade.”
Nodding his head, Ejed stared at the crumpled paper box. There was a strange smell in it.
‘Magical ginseng… I wonder if anyone caught a cold?’
Annie noticed the gaze and spat out a bitter smile.
“I’m sorry I haven’t talked to you for a long time. One of our family members got sick…”
As he listened to her circumstances, it seemed that a young child had been ill with a bad cold for a long time.
He was sad. He wanted to give her holy water, but there was no way because they were not in the Imperial Palace.
Moreover, the monster ruined the three ginseng she purchased, so he didn’t feel too good.
‘How can I help you right now?
Ejed tried to find a way to be considerate without burdening her.
Then, Annie said with a determined face.
“By the way, Jade.”
“Don’t be alone here, and come visit the Dsev’s mansion anytime.”
Ejed felt a familiar ominous feeling. Annie looked like she had misunderstood something about him again.
He denies it by giving strength to his neck.
“No, it is my will to be here.”
“Yes, I’m sure you do…”
After finishing their greetings, Annie repeated ‘surely’ several times.
At that moment, Ejed’s lips, who had hesitated, were opened.
