Chapter 21 . Initiated mental training

“Victory! We won!”


Laputa’s soldiers who had been watching Kimura being caught atop the castle walls roared .

They had won .

It was not just a victory, but it was a grand victory in a situation where they were in an extreme disadvantage . It was a complete victory .

It was an inspiring achievement .

“Are any injured, or dead? Report!”

Commander James as soon as the battle ended, sought to quickly check the status of his soldiers .

“Platoon 1, None, sir!”

“Platoon 2, two injured!”

“Platoon 3, None, sir!”

Amazingly, there were no casualties .

Two soldiers who had suffered minor injuries were all the setbacks that Laputa suffered in the battle .

‘My Lord, did you predict this would happen?’

James looked towards the watchtower that Kang Chul-In would have been in, and could not hide his awe .

“With the combination of troops that the enemy has, they will not win against us, no matter what they do . ”

Kang Chul-In, who had gained intel on the Burrow’s troops, assured them . That they cannot lose, and that they will make an overwhelming victory .

And that had come true, right in front of his eyes .

“Walk faster!”

Meanwhile, Podorski and the other cavalrymen bound Kimura tightly with rope and returned to Laputa .


Kimura was dragged along by the soldier named Podorski .

But… he looked a bit strange .

‘What, what is that bounding method?’


‘how in the world did he tie it like that?’

In the minds of those looking, lots of questions arose .

Kimura was tightly bound in a very complicated and strange rope-tie, and it was tied so well that it did not allow for any movement from the head to the toes . It was enough to make everyone surprised .

Kang Chul-In too, was taken aback .

‘Ha… this is driving me crazy . ’

Kang Chul-In hid his face in his hands, as if he was tired .

Where Podorski learned this was unknown, but the rope-tie that was used on Kimura was a technique similar to the tortoise shell tie, commonly found in Japanese AVs .

A Japanese Sovereign bound with a tie found in Japanese pornography… it was ironic .

“Sovereign, it is a complete victory . But why do you seem…”

“No, nothing . ”

Kang Chul-In swatted his hand at Lucia’s worried question .

“I probably did not sleep well last night . ”

Kang Chul-In who could not say that the tie method was lewd, just avoided the question saying that he was tired and moved his eyes towards Timothy .

“Timothy . ”

“Yes… Sovereign…”

Timothy looked as if he had lost his country . In reality, he did lose a country . From today, the Burrows would fall to Kang Chul-In’s leadership .

“Your Sovereign is incompetent and foolish . ”


Timothy did not answer .

Although Kimura was incompetent and foolish, he was, up until a moment ago, still Timothy’s owner who he had pledged all of his loyalty . He could not turn his back the moment Kimura had lost .

“And he abandoned you . If you still have loyalty to pledge to a leader like him, pledge it to me . ”


Timothy opened his eyes wide .


“I don’t know how it looks in your perspective, but I value men of talent . I don’t know your capacity, but I like your loyalty . What do you think, would you grow this land together with me?”

It was an unforeseen proposal, but it was also an attractive proposal .

‘Me, me… does he want this Timothy?’

Timothy could not speak, confused and jumbled at the sudden conciliation .

“You must need time . There, the sun sets . ”

Kang Chul-In pointed at the mountains .

“Decide before the sun sets and darkness comes . I am not that laid-back . Then, I will go see that arrogant monkey . ”

Kang Chul-In left, giving Timothy less than an hour to make a choice .

“Timothy . ”

Lucia called to Timothy, who was staring blankly .

“What are you contemplating?”

“What do you mean…”

“You have hit the jackpot right now . You have the opportunity of a lifetime right in front of you, but why are you not taking it?”

Lucia spoke in a serious tone . It was not the tone of treating a loser’s advisor, but an advisor to an advisor .

“Us advisors, all of the land’s service people have waited an infinite amount of time between the dimensions . For our Sovereign to come and lead us!”


“But we cannot choose Sovereigns . Only the Sovereigns make a choice . Only God knows what Sovereign will lead us . Am I wrong?”

“You . . you are right…”

“And a chance has been given to you to choose your Sovereign . Are you going to choose that incompetent Sovereign…”

Lucia raised her arm and pointed at the doors of Laputa . There was Kimura, who was being dragged and humiliated all tied up with the rope tie of Podorski .

“or choose an extraordinary Sovereign like mine . This time, the choice is entirely yours . However, the Sovereign’s right hand is my spot so do not dare!”

Lucia’s eyes burned .

“Anyways, the Sovereign has given you time, so think wisely . Also… the Sovereign has already granted you a pardon once . ”

“That… is true . ”

It was true .

If it was any other sovereign, they would have had Timothy’s head at the start of dawn .

“Do not disappoint him . Although he has shown mercy, he is blood and iron at the core . This… is probably the last chance you will be given . ”

Lucia was saying, “there is no second chance” . Timothy’s choice was either to serve Kang Chul-In, or die .

“Then, I hope you make a wise decision . ”

Lucia with those words, quickly left the watchtower .

“Ah… Gods… what is this Timothy to do?”

Timothy who was now left alone, thought again and again .

Was he to remain loyal as an advisor to the end, or was he going to serve a new master? It was hard to decide . It was a problem too difficult to solve before the sunset .

When everyone was celebrating the victory, one person, Kang Chul-In was not rejoicing .

No, he was happy, but the material of his happiness differed .

If the others were purely celebrating the victory, Kang Chul-In was celebrating the rewards of the victory . He had won in the battle, and he had captured the leader of the enemy, Kimura . From today, the gold and surviving troops of the Burrows would fall into Kang Chul-In’s hands . And…

‘Timothy, he will prove useful . ’

The old goblin was the biggest harvest .

Kang Chul-In wanted Timothy to pledge his loyalty to him . Because Timothy was too, an advisor . Like the 300 Sovereigns, there were also 300 advisors . Therefore, for each advisor, there was a [specialty] . A specialty usually for internal affairs . Maybe she was a special case, but he could not see Lucia’s specialty .

However, Timothy was different .

Timothy in the eyes of Kang Chul-In had the skill of [Administration Master] . The capabilities of that skill were as follows:

-[Administration Master]

Level: 1 (Maximum Level 5)

Effect: Administration work performed, Efficiency +20%

Effect: Night Shift performed, efficiency +70%

Effect: Administration work performed, stamina +30%

It was a skill perfect to put to work on a desk . For Kang Chul-In, who’s head spun just hearing the A in administration, Timothy was an extremely needed asset . If Timothy pledged himself to Kang Chul-In, he would for the rest of his life, until his death, be in front of a desk with papers . Kang Chul-In, thinking of this and that, arrived at the Sovereign hall where his throne was . In the Sovereign Hall, there were Commander James and ten soldiers, the cavalryman Podorski, and Kimura waiting for him .

“My Lord, my congratulations on the victory . ”

“Congratulations, my Lord!”

His soldiers sent awestruck congratulations, but Kang Chul-In was not satisfied with this boring win, so he did not show happiness .

It was an easy win .

Kimura was an idiot too stupid to even call Sovereign, and trash not worthy of dealing with . Kang Chul-In was not a man who would be satisfied with a victory over an incompetent leader .

Think about it .

Would a professional boxer be happy that he had won against an elementary school child? Would a strong, fit man celebrate a victory after twisting a chicken’s neck?

If there was one who was happy, that person would be the true trash that laughed after stepping on the weak . It would not be an overstatement to say all those who enjoyed massacres of innocent people, were crazy .

“Enough congratulating . Now, I will teach this one a lesson so if you have a club that’s suitable, bring it . ”

“Yes, Sovereign!”

At Kang Chul-In’s orders, a soldier quickly went to fetch for a club .

“Are you Podorski?”

Kang Chul-In called for the cavalryman who had captured Kimura .

“Yes, my Lord . I am Podorski . ”

“…do you like handcuffs, by chance?”

“Huh? That… Handcuffs are a wonderful catalyst that makes boring sex life more interesting…”

Poldorski was about to explain something, a little embarrassed, but Kang Chul-In waved his hand and cut him off .

“Stop! Do not speak further . ”

“Yes . How do you know, my Lord, that I like handcuffs?”

“… don’t try to know anything . ”

Kang Chul-In turned away .

The reason why Kang Chul-In asked such a question… was that Podorski looked just like the mascot of a public safety organization of a certain country . The round eyes, short haircut, the M shaped forehead like a monkey, the excessively large ears, and the brown hair . If he had worn the uniform, no one could deny that it was that mascot .

‘A guy like that, used that crude rope-tie? You have to live long to see certain things . ’

Kang Chul-In pressed his aching head tenderly and shook his head .

“…Anyways, you captured the enemy’s leader, so you have done well . I will appoint you to Laputa’s Director General . ”

“Thank you, my Lord!”

Podorski bowed to Kang Chul-In in gratitude of his unexpected raise in position .

“I, always wanted to be a cop ever since I was young!”

“…Seemed like it . ”

“How, how do you know that, my Lord!”

“Just… don’t ask . You’ll get hurt . ”

“Yes, Sovereign!”

Anyways, Podorski who said he wanted to be a cop since he was little, was given a position of determining Laputa’s safety . Kang Chul-In looked at Podorski and thought that maybe a person’s destiny was predetermined .

“James . ”

“Yes, my Lord . ”

“You did a good job as well . I will reward five gold . ”

“Oh, thank you my Lord!”

Five gold was about 2,000 dollars . James’ smile reached his ears .

“I will postpone detailed rewards to a later time . ”

Kang Chul-In looked down at Kimura and spoke .

“Uh…Uh! Mmm . . ”

Kimura bound with Poldorski’s rope and with a gag in his mouth was trying to say something . Although he could not understand it, he was almost a 100% sure Kimura was begging for him to spare his life .

“Young . ”

Kang Chul-In who had seen Kimura’s face grimaced, as if to say the little boy was nothing .

“About a high-schooler? Well, I have no intentions of going easy anyway . ”

Kang Chul-In was not someone to go easy because the other was young .

“Uh…Uh! Mmm!!”

Kimura, overcome with horror yelled . He must have felt his life in danger looking at Kang Chul-In’s eyes . It was that moment when the soldier who was looking for a club ran into the Sovereign Hall and handed Kang Chul-In an iron club .

“My Lord, here it is . ”

Coincidentally, the iron club resembled the shape of a baseball bat, making it perfect to hit someone . There was not a club better to teach someone a lesson .

“Undo that idiot’s rope and make him lay in front of me . ”

Kang Chul-In ordered

It was time to train the monkey .
