Date- 3 April 2321
Location- Sky Blossom City, Guild Association Mall, Warehouse no.234, Card Lab
“Wait, we can use silver milk powder to awaken mortals as card apprentice?” Susan asked me in surprise, though she had used silver milk powder she wasn’t fully aware of its uses as she was not involved in this project. Until I introduced silver milk powder to Susan, she too was in doubt of its existence like the rest of the world.
“Yes, so if your parents are planning their retirement, have them move to Fine Gold executive residences. Talk to Cindy she will help you help settle your parents. Then we can introduce them to silver milk powder and within a year or so they too can contract their bronze grimoire.” A year was a stretch, depending upon their present active soul control Susan’s parents can awaken an hour after taking silver milk powder or even months later. As for their housing, the mansions allotted to the families of the senior executives of Fine Gold should be a nice place where Susan’s parents can start their new chapter as card apprentices.
“Really? You would do that for me. But I thought sliver milk powder was still a secret that needed to be kept from the general populous. I don’t want you to go through that trouble, it can wait until the royal family introduces the sliver milk powder to the world market.” Susan has happy and touched that her boss was willing to help her parents become card apprentices but she knew that the silver milk powder was a top secret that the southern royal family was trying to protect from rest of the world so she did not want her boss to go through the trouble for her.
“Don’t worry about it, your parents are like my parents. Hey, if possible have them move before we leave for the royal palace, I would love to meet them.” The best way to keep your employees loyal was to keep their families happy. And Susan was not just an employee for me so I was willing to go the extra mile for her and her family.
“…” Hearing her boss claim that her parents were his parents Susan’s face was flushed, ‘How can he say such a thing with a straight face?’ Susan’s mind couldn’t help but search for a deeper meaning in it but looking at her boss’s straight face and remembering his dense history, she couldn’t help but feel disappointed that she got excited over nothing.
“Hey, you two seem chummy. What are you guys talking about?” Anna rushed over to her young lover and her love rival, following her screaming instincts.
“About meeting Susan’s parents,” I answered Anna.
“Why? Why would you want to meet her parents?” Anna asked in a panic. Her instincts were right, her rival was indeed cooking something up. Meeting Susan’s parents, how dare he? He hasn’t met her family yet.
“Why? Your highness, why not?” Susan asked Anna.
“W-well… Wyatt is a busy man. So I thought he must have reason to make time for visiting your parents out of his busy schedule.” flustered Anna answered with the first words that came to her mind and then sighed mentally thinking, ‘Anna, what are you babbling? Get yourself together, girl.’
“Well, I am indeed a busy man but I can manage to spare some time to have dinner with my friend’s family. Especially, if it is Susan’s family.” I answered feeling Anna was acting weird.
“Wyatt, you are right meeting a friend’s family is important, what was I thinking. Manager Susan, are your parents coming to visit you?” The only consolation Anna felt from this conversation was that her love only thought of this as visiting a friend’s family. As for the last ‘especially’ part of her lover’s sentence, Anna chose to ignore it because that meant Susan was more than a friend.
“No, your highness. But they will be, soon.” Susan replied.
“Oh, okay.” Anna replied while thinking, ‘I should push Luna to complete the dungeon relocation soon. This way Wyatt will meet my family first at the palace and not have the time to meet Susan’s family.’
‘The project would have long been completed if you had helped instead of wasting your time doing nothing,’ Ann sent a mental message to Anna using the connection between them.
‘Ann, stop eavesdropping on over conversation. And why should I work when I got you. What are you doing here? Go back to the base and help Luna complete the task as fast as possible. I cannot lose to that country girl.’ Anna ordered Ann mentally.
‘I am not going and I am not your slave. You go do it yourself.’ Ann was pissed by Anna’s trying to order her around.
‘What? That’s exactly what an origin card is supposed to be. Everyone says you are perfect but I don’t think so. As my origin card, you don’t even know the basics of being an origin card, to follow my damned order.’ Anna snapped at Ann for not following her orders.
‘F-fuck off’ pissed Ann uttered these words which she soon regretted saying.
‘Oh, look I made little miss goody-goody-two-shoes cuss, awe, mommy is going to be disappointed when she hears about this.’ Anna continued to taunt Ann. As for Ann, she began to ignore Anna and continued building her soul illusion.
“Asong, send me out I have a space collapse card to make.” I requested Asong, who had finally settled her thoughts and was enjoying her new origin card.
Hearing my request Susan who now had new plans for her parent’s retirement scrubbed her soul illusion and made the same request as me, “Madam Asong, Send me out too, I have to help Wyatt with card ingredients.”
“Um, okay.” saying that Asong paused and added, “Everybody, I am sorry but we too have to leave. But don’t worry, I have another big surprise to show you guys outside.”
“Finally,” cheered a cat monster. Aba had not figured out how to break the soul illusion on her soul body. She did beg Agatha for her help but she didn’t help her and kept repeating, ‘This is for your good princess.’
