Chapter 53 Part 2 - The Narrow-Eyed Villain of the Demon Academy

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

Right after Kyle collapsed unconscious.


Whirr-.


I released the dark space and put my finger on Kyle's nose.


'He's alive.'


I remembered the story that you faint if you get hit on the back of the neck, so I tried it, and it worked better than I thought.


He didn't seem to be in any danger of dying.


His complexion wasn't bad, and he didn't have any other symptoms, so he simply fainted.


"What should I do now?"


I trailed off, looking at the unconscious Kyle.


Should I kill him?


I shook my head.


Killing Kyle wasn't a good choice.


Not only was there information that I could get from Kyle right now, but if I killed him, I would also have to deal with his younger sister, Ray.


'I don't know about Kyle, but it would be difficult to handle Ray.'


Ray had the qualities of a Grand Mage.


Even now, she would be stronger than Baltan, who was considered the strongest of the Seven Deadly Sins.


I didn't think I was at the level where I could beat Baltan yet.


Ray and Kyle's bond was very strong, so I had to be careful.


'Thinking of me as an enemy and considering me a mortal enemy are two different things.'


If Ray were to use all her power to kill me.


Even if it was me, it was obvious that I wouldn't be safe.


In a word, Kyle was an important hostage.


'I should go in the direction of saving him.'


I won't kill him.


That didn't mean I would let go of the prey I had finally caught.


I thought deeply about how I could control Kyle.


If there was a way to instill fear in the other person and kill them if they didn't do what I wanted...


'There is one.'


The Gu poison sleeping in my arms.


If I used that guy, I would be able to control Kyle sufficiently.


However, since the owner of the Gu poison wasn't me, I ran into a problem.


How could I use it well...?


I was lost in thought about what to do with the unconscious Kyle.


Several hours passed like that.


* * *


“Ugh….”


Kyle groaned softly and opened his eyes.


I looked down at him and smiled.


“Are you awake?”


“…..”


Kyle ignored my question and checked his body.


His eyes widened in surprise when he realized he was surprisingly unharmed.


He seemed even more bewildered because I hadn’t even tied him up.


It seemed like the shock of me just looking down at him without taking any action had gotten to him.


Kyle looked at me in confusion and growled.


“What’s going on?”


“What do you mean? What’s going on?”


“…..Why did you wait until I woke up?”


Why I waited.


It must have been a question for him.


This was where it was important.


Whew.


I took a deep breath.


From now on, I have to act.


I hurried to answer Kyle’s question.


"It's true that I waited for you, but I didn't think you would assume I did nothing."


I smiled wickedly.


A smile I made as evil as possible, like a demon’s.


Kyle flinched at my sinister smile and asked.


“…..What did you do?”


Instead of answering, I signaled to Gu poison in my arms.


Gu poison wrapped around my arm and perched on my shoulder.


Kyle’s face turned blue when he saw it.


“That’s.”


“You recognize it.”


“To think you can even control Gu poison….”


Kyle muttered in disbelief.


“I heard that the Bares family vouched for your identity….”


Kyle fell into the delusion as I intended.


He seemed to think I could control Gu poison.


‘Actually, it belongs to Crete.’


Well, whatever.


As long as I could deceive Kyle, that was enough.


I smiled even more broadly.


“Surely….”


Finally, Kyle took the bait.


“You noticed what’s inside your body.”


“…..From the beginning, was this your plan?”


“Yes, this Gu poison’s name called Twin Gu poison. It can only exert its power when it’s inside two bodies.”


“Twin?”


“It can kill its host with just a little stimulation, so I can’t give it a signal unless it’s urgent.”


The moment I added those words.


Kyle’s eyes widened as he asked.


“Two people?”


“Hmm, you’re probably right. The other half is inside Ray’s body.”


“……I can’t believe it. I’ve never even heard of a Twin Gu poison.”


As he said that, Kyle’s shoulders shook slightly with fear.


What I said was a declaration that if he did anything reckless, I would kill Ray.


"It was quite an interesting body. Her mana sensitivity was so high that her heart couldn't handle it. Thanks to that, it was easy for Gu poison to infiltrate."


I stroked Gu poison, who was rubbing her body against my cheek like a spoiled child.


It was also playing along with my act.


What a good boy.


“…….”


Kyle couldn’t continue speaking and just stared blankly.


Information that he couldn’t have known unless he had examined Ray’s constitution, let alone met her in person.


In fact, at this point in time, Kyle didn’t even know what was wrong with Ray.


That’s why I suggested it.


“Your sister’s constitution is very rare, but it’s not completely incurable.”


“Then.”


“It can be cured. By me.”


“……That’s ridiculous. How could someone like you do something that even the most renowned human mages can’t?”


Kyle’s question was valid.


My strength was still only comparable to the children of the Seven Deadly Sins at best.


And yet, he was asking how I could solve something that the high-ranking human mages had failed to do.


In reality, I couldn’t solve it either.


But I had a lie prepared.


“It seems you haven’t investigated the Bares family thoroughly enough.”


“What are you talking about all of a sudden……”


“Gu poison has the ability to devour the host’s mana.”


I cut off Kyle’s words and said.


Kyle’s eyes widened as he recalled Gu poison’s traits.


It seemed like he was thinking about what Gu poison was doing in Ray’s body, even without me explaining it further.


Ray, for whom overflowing mana was poison.


Gu poison, who devoured mana.


If those two met…….


“……So that’s how it is. It was actually a blessing in disguise that Gu poison parasitized her.”


Kyle nodded as if he had understood.


He had fallen for my act completely.

  1. Ugh. I hate this development. Wasn’t the original plan literally to kill this guy to get rid of the suspicions of MC being a spy? There was nothing that went wrong to make the initial plans change. MC knew the spies identity from the start and the fact his little sister was part of the heroes party and still planned to kill him, so what the hell is this?
