Chapter 682: I, Reed, Concede Defeat!
Translator: Simple MTL Editor: Simple MTL
Reed walked to the front of Lugh, who was wearing a dragon-head mask, and sized him up carefully. He secretly praised, ‘What a handsome young man with a temperament like a dragon!’
“This is the Evolution Grass!”
“I can give it to you first… Although it doesn’t meet the requirements of your Adventurers’ Union!”
Saying this, Reed paused and continued half-jokingly, “As the client who issued the mission, I should at least know the status of your mission completion and the details, right?”
Hearing that, Lugh nodded and put away the Evolution Grass. Then, he told Reed some of the details of the Undead Mountain Range…
As Reed listened to Lugh’s story, as if he was telling a story, Reed’s expression also changed crazily along with the turn of the battle…
When he heard that Lugh and the rest had finally found the Puppeteer’s hiding place after going through many difficulties, Reed’s face was filled with ecstasy!
When he heard that this hiding place was only a clone controlled by the Puppeteer, Reed’s face was filled with disappointment!
When he heard that the Puppeteer had attacked Lugh and Rabbit had pushed Lugh and Monkey away, Reed was once again cheering for Rabbit’s bravery!
When he heard that the Puppeteer had controlled Rabbit and had them kill each other! When he even had Lugh and Monkey stand still and let Rabbit kill them, or else he would control Rabbit to self-harm… Reed once again cursed the Puppeteer in his heart.
When he heard that Lugh had finally gotten rid of the Puppeteer and saved Rabbit and Monkey, Reed finally cried out in shock, “Is it over?”
Lugh shook his head, “This should have been the end of it! But what happened next was far beyond our imagination!”
So, Lugh told Reed about the Puppeteer’s true form, the black bead chasing after him…
Reed cried out again, “The Puppeteer’s true form? No wonder the Puppeteer would reappear 100 years later today!”
“Don’t make such a fuss, okay? Keep interrupting me. Do you want to continue listening?” Lugh said impatiently.
As a member of the Royal Guards, Reed did not get angry when he heard this. Instead, he said with an apologetic smile, “I’m sorry, I was too surprised. Continue…”
Lugh also wanted to end this topic as soon as possible, so he immediately sped up his tone.
“Later, this bead ran into Monkey’s body, so he became the current Puppeteer!”
As he said that, he pointed at the sack beside him.
“This is the current Puppeteer, he has been brought back by us! Now, we will use your prison to temporarily imprison Monkey!”
Lugh said this very quickly! But Reed still heard it clearly. There was a huge amount of information in this! Reed had no choice but to take some time to digest it.
At this moment, Reed’s expression was uncertain. After a while, he gradually calmed down.
“You are saying that the Puppeteer’s true form is actually a black bead? Now, it has drilled into Monkey’s body?”
“And Monkey that is now in the sack is the current Puppeteer?”
At the end of his sentence, Reed’s tone could not help but become a few degrees higher.
But at this moment…
Reed, who had been relatively calm just a moment ago, suddenly exploded. With a hand knife, he wanted to completely put the sleeping Monkey into eternal sleep!
But fortunately, Butler Sali’s skills were not bad. His strength was not inferior to that of Captain Reed. With a simple step back, he dodged Reed’s surprise attack!
Captain Yerkes, who had come to his senses, also instantly burst out. He grabbed Captain Reed and asked sternly, “Reed, are you crazy? Do you know what you are doing?”
“Monkey is a member of our Union. You want to kill him without any reason!?”
“Even if you are the Captain of the Royal Guards, I can still take you down on the spot! Even if I kill you, the royal family has nothing to say!”
But Reed was even more furious.
“Of course I know!”
“But do you, Yerkes, know who Monkey is now?”
“He is now the Puppeteer! Do you know?”
“Do you know what kind of disaster the Imperial City will suffer once the Puppeteer wakes up?”
Yerkes’ hand slowly loosened…
Reed did not bother to tidy up his slightly messy clothes and continued to roar:
“Once the Puppeteer controls the members of the royal family, he will assassinate the current emperor! Who will bear the responsibility?”
“Will you, Yerkes, bear the responsibility?”
Yerkes said fiercely, “But Monkey is still a member of our Union!”
“Now I will not allow anyone to kill him without any reason!”
At this point, Yerkes raised his head, his eyes shining brightly.
“Moreover, Monkey can still be saved!”
“As long as we take out the memories belonging to the Puppeteer and only keep the memories belonging to Monkey… then a brand new Puppeteer will appear!”
After a short silence, Reed said, “You mean Princess Kitty?”
Clearly, Reed also knew the only way to save Monkey!
Leader Yerkes also nodded.
“Now we can only let Princess Kitty use her source beast skill to extract all the memories of the Puppeteer!”
“Only then can we save Monkey!”
“But how can you get Princess Kitty to help? I heard that this princess has an extremely strange personality! Even His Majesty has no way to force her to do something she doesn’t want to do!” Reed said with some difficulty.
At this time, Leader Yerkes laughed out loud.
“Princess Kitty is a member of our Adventurers’ Union!”
“What?” Reed shouted. The news that he heard today was shocking enough. He thought that he wouldn’t make a fuss after hearing something important!
However, when he heard that Princess Kitty was a member of the Adventurers’ Union, Reed couldn’t help but be surprised.
Although Reed had long heard that this Princess Kitty, who was equally talented and had a high personality in the royal family, didn’t look like a princess at all and specifically did some things that would damage the royal family’s face…
‘But as a princess of a country, joining an Adventurers’ Union? Wasn’t this a little too childish?’
‘How did you lure Princess Kitty in?’
‘Even if Princess Kitty wanted to join your Adventurers’ Union, you can’t take her in!’
‘Do you have the guts to fight like this?’
‘Aren’t you afraid that the royal family of Green Kingdom’s capital will expel you from the Adventurers’ Union?’
Reed thought so in his heart and looked at Yerkes with admiration…
This was the first time Reed admitted from the bottom of his heart that he was inferior to Yerkes!
‘I have to say, Yerkes is better at this! I, Reed, admit defeat!’
