The worst and strongest villain. I became a narrow-eyed character Arsene Adel. DBT,Korean,Novel,Translation,Academy,NEVDA,Fantasy,Possession,Assassin

Was there no way around this?


"Here."


"......?"


As I was pondering whether there was anything I could use in place of an ID,


Rene pulled out another ID from her pocket.


It had my picture and fake information on it.


"Father gave me your ID."


"I, I see."


I couldn't help but be amazed by Crete's preparedness.


'But then,'


If he was going to do that, why didn't he give it to me directly? Why did he have to give it to Rene...?


It didn't seem like it mattered much, so I shook my head and took the ID from Rene before handing it to the receptionist.


"Here you go."


"Hmm... House of Pixies, name is Adel, is it?"


It was the first time I had heard of that House.


Judging by the receptionist's reaction, it seemed like it was the first time he had heard of it as well.


It didn't matter to me. After all, it would be easier to operate in a House with less notoriety than a famous one.


"Yes, yes. That's correct."


I nodded vaguely in response to the receptionist's questions.


Crete must have done a good job forging it.


He had tricked me more than once, so it would have been disappointing if he couldn't even do this right.


Thud.


Before I knew it, the receptionist had finished recording my information and handed me back my ID.


'I'd rather have it on me.'


I took the ID and slipped it into my pocket.


Rene didn't make any attempt to take the ID back.


Surely, an ID would be essential for operating in the Demon Realm.


Considering what lay ahead, it made sense for me to keep it.


"Your registration is complete. Come back on the day of the entrance exam."


The receptionist announced curtly.


His voice was laced with genuine disgust for the half-bloods.


What did I do?


Curses rose to my throat, but I swallowed them down and turned to leave, opening my mouth with a smirk.


"Miss, let's be on our way."


"......"


Rene glared at the receptionist until the end before finally moving.


It seems she's quite heated since her family was insulted...


But when the receptionist didn't react, Rene quickly looked away.


To lighten the mood, I spoke to the still-angry Rene in a somewhat cheerful voice.


"Let's go find an inn now."

What currency is used in the Demon Realm, and what is its approximate value?


This was something I learned from Crete when I was assigned the role of an escort.


It was so that I could take good care of Rene, who rarely left the territory.


Looking back now, I think Rene deserves a doctorate in demon sociology...


Anyway.


The Demon Realm's currency is as follows:


Copper coins, silver coins, and gold coins.


Copper coins are the lowest in value, followed by silver coins, and finally gold coins.


Ten copper coins make one silver coin, and ten silver coins make one gold coin.


It is said that twenty gold coins is the monthly income of a low-ranking Demon Realm official, which would be about 2 million won in human terms.


Crete gave us ten gold coins for expenses.


Converted, that's about one million won.


This amount would barely cover two people's lodging and food for a month.


Crete said he would give us more if we needed it, but the Bares family is practically half-destroyed, so they wouldn't be financially well-off...


In the end, it meant that we had to be frugal.


'It's a waste to use the gold coins I got from the territory of the undead.'


The additional 100 gold coins.


I had to save those, as they were payment for the `Information paper`.


Therefore.


"That inn is no good. You can tell it's expensive just by looking at it."


I grabbed Rene by the shoulder as she was about to enter an inn with a luxurious appearance.


Rene had been living in a huge mansion, so she had been rejecting every inn I suggested.


"......The inns you suggest are too shabby."


"We can't help it. We don't have any money."


"......"


Rene continued to express her disapproval until the very end.


Letting out a sigh that could have shattered the earth, I had to find a compromise.


We came to an agreement to stay at an inn that wasn't too expensive but offered a reasonable price range.


We entered an inn nearby.


It was a small inn made of wooden materials.


However, it didn't feel rundown.


"Are you here to rent a room?"


A woman who seemed to be an employee of the inn approached us and asked.


"Yes, we would like to stay for two nights."


"Will you be sharing a room with the person next to you?"


“……!!”


Rene's shoulders flinched at the employee's question.


Hmm, it seemed like a situation that could be easily misunderstood.


I hurriedly added, pushing the surprised Rene behind me, "No, please assign us separate rooms."


"Then the cost for two nights, including meals for two rooms, will be 2 gold!"


200,000 won…….


It was neither expensive nor cheap.


I didn't have the energy to haggle over the price, so I obediently paid the fee.


"Your rooms are on the 2nd floor!"


The employee said as she handed us two keys.


Rene and I each took a key and went up to the 2nd floor.


"Have a comfortable stay."


“……You too."


Rene replied and turned to enter her room.


Rene's figure, which I briefly glanced at, looked visibly exhausted.


Creak-.


I also opened the door and entered my room, then looked around.


It seemed quite clean, at least there didn't seem to be any cockroaches.


I was the type to turn pale at the sight of bugs, so I was quite sensitive to them.


"Well then……”


Should I sleep?


I lay down on the bed and closed my eyes.


Before I knew it, I surrendered my body to the drowsiness that began to creep in.


And just like that, my consciousness faded away…….
