An Oath Should Be Made with Caution

Since it was an oath with binding force and side effects, I needed to revise the oath in a way that was advantageous to me.

I was able to revise it in a way that was satisfactory to both of us because I wrote it while coordinating my differences of opinion with Robolt as much as possible.

『 Adel will not spread Robolt’s research data anywhere and will assist in the research.

Adel may withdraw assistance if deemed beyond his capabilities.

However, in that case, he must return all the compensation he received from Robolt.

As compensation, Robolt will pay Adel [ ].


It was perfect.

I deleted the item that said, ‘I must help Robolt until he achieves his results.’

Instead, I added an item that said I could void the contract if I judged it to be beyond my capabilities.

Of course, if that were to happen…

‘I won't be able to receive the Demon God's Oath.’

The Demon God's Oath was the first thing I needed to obtain.

Only by obtaining it would I be able to use Kyle as my pawn.

That's why there was no need to write an excessive demand in the compensation section that had not yet been filled.

‘Something that Robolt can easily give me, but that I need.’

I had been thinking about it all along.

Something that Robolt could easily obtain, but that I absolutely needed.

I wrote down what I wanted in the compensation section.

“You want those?”

Robolt asked when he saw the compensation I wanted.

I nodded my head.

The first was the Demon God's Oath.

The second was ‘Mana Potion’.

Those were the things I was asking Robolt for.

“I have a few copies of the Demon God's Oath, so I can give them to you. Mana Potion is hard to obtain, but... It's not impossible to obtain.”

“I would be grateful if you could.”

“Hmm, but you don't want just one bottle, do you? How much do you want?”

“About three bottles of high-grade Mana Potion should be enough.”

I didn't want inferior goods.

I only wanted the best.

A high-grade Mana Potion instantly restores the mana you've consumed to its maximum.

Of course, those with a large mana pool like experienced mages, won't be able to recover even half of it.

It's the most important item for me, who still has a small amount of mana.

'Giving me an elixir would be too much.'

Even low-grade elixirs were expensive, and high-grade ones were practically impossible to obtain unless you were from a noble family.

That's because during the Human-Demon War, humans took all the elixirs they could see.

That's also the reason why I feel the need for an elixir but can't get one.

Most of the elixirs in the Demon Realm are probably sleeping in the warehouses of high-ranking families or in high-level secret realms.

That's why I chose potions as a second-best option.

"I understand. But if my research doesn't succeed, I won't be able to pay you."

As I expected, Robolt accepted my request without hesitation.

It was all based on success, but if it succeeded, that would be it.

But I had a question.

"Why me?"

"What do you mean?"

"I'm curious why you're recommending your research to me. I'm sure there are more talented students than me among the students."

Was there a reason to entrust this task to a mere 1st-year student?

Robolt would have no problem getting in touch with 2nd or 3rd year students.

I wondered why he chose me despite Samuel being in Class A.

"Well, actually...."

Robolt, who had been choosing his words for a moment, replied.

"Apart from Student Adel, I asked several other students for help, but most of them were not helpful to my research."

Robolt's words were like this.

He asked other students for help besides me, but they didn't produce any significant results.

That's why he reached out to promising 1st-year students, and I happened to be one of them.

Somehow, there was a reason for giving me something as precious as a high-grade mana potion.

"I tried to ask student Samuel for help, but he refused outright, saying it was annoying."

Robolt added with a sigh of disappointment.

'Well, that's typical of him'

Rather than that.

'If all the other students failed, it means that it's not an easy study to do.'

What kind of research is he trying to do?

In the end, I became interested.

"Then sign it."



I wrote the four letters Pixie Adel in the signature box.

Before I knew it, I had become accustomed to the pseudonym that did not use Arsene's last name.

That was the moment.


As soon as I wrote my name, the Demon's Oath burned and disappeared.

And the remaining embers seeped into my chest.

The oath was complete.

“It’s complete.”

Robolt opened his mouth and rose from his seat.

“Now, follow me. I’ll show you what I’ve been researching.”

“I will.”

I rose after Robolt.

We walked through Robolt’s lab in silence.

We arrived in front of a bookshelf.


Robolt pressed on one of the books on the bookshelf, and it slid inward.


A dull sound rang out, and the bookshelf began to split in two.

“Shall we go in?”


A secret passage appeared before our eyes.

‘Demons seem to really like secret passages.’

The secret warehouse from the entrance exam was the same, and it seemed like they had some kind of romantic notion about secret passages.

I didn’t say it out loud and just started walking.

As we walked down.



Robolt flicked his finger and created a sphere of light.

Soon, the secret passage began to fill with light.

Robolt walked forward and started talking.

“What I’m researching is a book.”

“A book?”

“Yes, a book that’s presumed to be an ancient artifact.”

“……I see.”

I let out a low groan.

I could guess that research wouldn’t be easy from the words ‘ancient book.’

I wouldn’t know until I tried, but it didn’t seem like it would be the interpretation of an ancient text.

And my prediction was correct.

“This is it.”


The place we arrived at was filled with various items covered by curtains.

‘It’s like a scientist’s lab.’

While I was having a brief thought, Robolt pulled the cloth off of an item.

An ancient book was revealed.
