Chapter 40: Sagas’ Transformation
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
With a pull, he lifted Sagas from the edge of the cliff.
After that, Jobs stood aside and looked at Sagas quietly.
She muttered: “Why did you save me?”
“Why did you save me?!”
In the end, she could not accept this heavy truth.
Sagas sat on the ground and covered her face as she sobbed profusely.
Jobs stood by the side and quietly watched the crying Sagas.
In the end, he could not help but hand her a handkerchief.
Sagas looked up at the handkerchief Jobs handed her with glazed eyes.
With tears streaming down her face, she suddenly stood up and ran down the mountain.
Jobs watched as she walked away.
He spoke in a voice that only he himself could hear: “Let her spend some time alone at the foot of the mountain for a while.”
He instructed his pets telepathically: “White Wolf King, follow her. Don’t let her detect you.”
Sagas ran through the forest, tears streaming down her face.
She ran until she could not run anymore.
She looked up and realized that she was in a completely unfamiliar place.
A huge tree could be seen beside a clear river.
In the middle of the giant tree was a natural tree hole.
With glazed eyes, Sagas walked into the tree hole and collapsed against the edge.
She said in a daze: “Why?! Why is this happening to me?”
Just as Sagas was daydreaming, rain began to fall from the sky.
The raindrops made a splattering sound on the ground.
Then, the rain converged into a stream of water that slowly flowed into the river.
Sagas watched the rain outside from the tree hole and thought to herself.
“How nice would it be if my father was here?”
“Father was always able to pick me up without fear of wind and rain.”
“No matter where I am, you will come and pick me up.”
As she thought about it, she silently shed a tear.
Jobs received a message from the White Wolf King telepathically.
Then, he took an umbrella and came to a place not far from Sagas.
Standing in the rain and looking at the dull-eyed Sagas, he thought: “It would appear that her father’s death is still somewhat difficult to accept.”
It took Sagas a while to recover.
She walked out of the tree hole and came to the river.
Looking at her reflection in the river, she said, “Father! I will not disappoint you. I will avenge you personally!”
After she finished speaking, there was no sadness on her face. Instead, there was determination.
At the same time, she said, “I am no longer that indecisive Sagas!”
After saying that, she raised her head and prepared to head to the mountaintop to find Jobs.
But when she looked up, she saw Jobs who was standing not far away from her with an umbrella, quietly watching over her.
The rain gradually became heavier, no longer accompanied by the dripping sound from before.
Instead, a thunderous boom erupted.
Jobs was still looking at her indifferently.
He seemed to be waiting for her to make a decision.
Sagas stood in the rain for a few minutes with her head down, thinking.
Finally, she gritted his teeth and said: “I can promise you one thing, but you have to let me kill my father’s murderer!”
“So make your request.”
Jobs obviously did not think Sagas would say that.
He looked at Sagas playfully and said: “Really? Anything?”
“As long as you let me kill my father’s enemy, I’ll do anything!” Sagas gritted her teeth and replied.
“I’m prepared for the worst. I’m willing to sacrifice myself.”
Hearing this, Jobs was overjoyed.
“Then I want…”
Upon hearing this, her heart was pounding with anxiety, afraid that Jobs would make any more outrageous demands.
“Then I want you to take care of my basic needs.”
After saying that, Jobs glanced at Sagas.
She was prepared for the worst.
But now, he mentioned that she had to be responsible for his food, shelter, and transportation.
Ever since she was young, she always had someone in charge of her basic needs.
This was the first time someone had made such a request.
She thought about it and agreed to this request.
Jobs did not expect that she would agree to this casual request.
He thought to himself: If I had known earlier, I would have made other requests. What a waste!
Then, he brought Sagas back to the tree hole at the top of the mountain.
That place had been transformed into a tree hole that could accommodate the two of them.
He said, “This will be my home from now on.”
“You can sleep here with me or go back to the town’s tavern.”
After saying that, he opened the door of the tree hole and walked in.
Only Sagas remained outside, stunned.
Just as Sagas was about to open the door and enter, it suddenly opened.
It was Jobs who came out despite having just entered earlier.
Sagas saw Jobs come out and thought that he was thinking of her and wanted to ask her to go in, so she said, “Seems like you are not a heartless guy.”
Hearing this, Jobs was stunned.
He looked at her, unable to say anything.
The atmosphere gradually became awkward.
A voice saved the two of them.
The voice came from behind a rock: “Hello! Is there anyone? Help! Help! Us!”
It was a very weak voice.
It was as if the person had not eaten for a long time.
Hearing the voice, Jobs walked over.
The sound came from Taros.
Beside him was Royce, who had fainted from hunger.
His voice was very weak, as if he had been beaten up.
Sagas followed behind and was very surprised to see this.
She had originally thought that Jobs had released the two young masters.
She had not expected that they would starve here and even faint from hunger.
Judging from the marks on their hands, it had been three days.
Jobs then instructed Sagas: “Prepare some food for them, don’t let them die.”
Hearing this, Sagas walked back to the tree house to make preparations.
