Became the Mafia of the Academy - Chapter 218
Became the Mafia of the Academy chapter 218
Inside the cathedral in Palermo, where everyone left.
The inside was already dyed red as the light of the setting sun streamed in.
In the meantime, a middle-aged man sitting blankly looking at the cross.
“… … It’s absurd.”
He remembered what had just happened and stroked the ring on his finger.
“yes. Don Medici.”
The answer that comes back to the words that are asked to the air.
Apparently, another man was sitting in this place where only the Medici had existed until just now.
“That child from a moment ago. What do you think of Carlione Jr.?”
A man in a suit who appeared out of nowhere listened to Medici’s question and then opened his mouth after a moment of silence.
“It is a monster.”
“Hoo. Are you a monster?”
Knowing that it was a hard evaluation to come out of his mouth, he turned his head with a smile as if he was having fun.
“Did you think so too?”
“In the first place, I thought it wouldn’t make sense to act and make such judgments at that age.”
Saying that, the man recalled what had just happened.
Even though it’s a cathedral, the boldness to enter the middle of enemy lines. The meticulousness of bringing the ‘Midsommar Pass’ so that you can deal with it at any time if you fall into danger. And even in that situation, the way he moves with the initiative.
“Didn’t he look just like my father?”
“… … yes. That’s why it becomes more borderline.”
Medici nodded at the man’s evaluation.
“How did I not know about the alternative fire giant… … .”
In the Medici family, aiming for a fire giant is a top secret matter known only to a few people involved.
Following this, he tried to hide the information as much as possible by attaching a plausible reason for perfect security, but Eugene Han Carlione knew everything inside as if he already knew everything.
The Medici clenched their fists and opened their mouths.
“How much do you think he knows?”
“… … When examining that attitude or behavior. He probably knows everything.”
“okay… … I mean… … A creepy bastard.”
The child replied that Carlione’s intelligence department was unaware of this fact.
In other words, there is a separate information department of your own individual, not inside Carlione.
“So you’re saying that they’ve already created an organization that can easily flip Carlione’s intelligence department… … !”
At that age too?
The Medici felt the cold sweat dripping involuntarily and wiped their hands.
“… … It’s ridiculous.”
Recalling an organization that doesn’t even exist yet, he gives orders to men.
“So that you can focus more on security from now on. If someone does something suspicious or fails in security, you can punish them immediately.”
“… … I will follow Don’s orders.”
A man who answers Medici’s words and slowly loses his shape as if permeating into the shadows.
Looking at the now completely red cathedral, the Medici stood up and looked at the statue of a saint in front of them.
“Forgive us the sins of the blood we shall shed, and grant us peace——.”

After amicable negotiations with the Medici.
As I walked back to the original cabin with light steps, I could see two people sitting at the table with serious expressions.
“uh… … I’m home?”
When I first spoke in an indescribably heavy atmosphere, the two of them turned their eyes to me and stood up.
“Oh, you’re here?!”
“How is it! Are you okay?”
The reaction of the two people was quite intense, probably because they had been waiting for me until now.
“The job was done well. Calm down for now.”
The two of them become restless as they calm down and sit down in an empty chair.
“So what did the Medici say? Would you like to reduce the debt?”
“You said it went well… … ? Are you okay?”
Still, it seems that it was not easy to calm down as the issue was an issue.
He smiled at the two of them and started talking about the deal he had made with the Medici.
“I will be involved in an ongoing project in the Medici family. I decided to participate there as a mercenary and help the Medici family. As compensation for this, the Maestro paid off the debt, and I also made a deal to receive a small amount of compensation.”
Of course, he left out everything about the fire giant.
As much as it was still treated as confidential information within the Medici, the two did not need to know.

No, rather, it was the judgment that it would be better not to know, as there might be some kind of retaliation if you recklessly found out.
There is a saying that curiosity kills the cat.
“… … Did they really accept that offer? Even giving up astronomical money?”
However, he also shows a reaction that he does not easily believe.
It was a natural reaction, if it was natural.
It’s because the things that bothered me so far just disappeared.
“It’s not anyone else, isn’t it me? It’s a little embarrassing to say with my own words, but that’s not a mercenary that can be easily obtained even with money.”
Well, to be precise, thanks to that, it became a huge business for me.
Go to the attack with the Medici.
In other words, it is no different from doing what one day will be done anyway with the support of the Medici family.
“this… … I don’t even know what to say. Then, what will happen in the future?”
“Right now, they won’t visit the elderly because of their debt situation. You can also use the workshop in the village again. However, the point at which the elder’s debt disappears is when I complete the request, so I am not completely free yet.”
they weren’t stupid

Now, the Maestro’s debt is not a means to their advantage, but a kind of leash that keeps me on my promise.
That’s how important fire giants are to them.
But they won’t know yet. That the leash would rather be directed towards them.
“A request from the Medici… … I am again in deep debt to Carlione… … .”
Ludbio was a human who properly knew the laws of this world.
In this world, kindness becomes a debt, and that debt becomes a fate that one day must repay.
That’s why he had a lighthearted yet bittersweet smile.
“About that, Maestro.”
So I decided to lighten his burden a little.
“For this raid, I would appreciate it if you could retouch these shoes.”
While saying that, I put the black radish I had put in the cube before coming here and put it on the table.
The shoes were quietly placed on the table while scattering a faint black mist.
“… … This. Is it a relic?”
As a result, his voice changed as he looked at the black radish with clear eyes that were clearly different from the previous one.
“That’s right. The name of these shoes is Black Mu (黑霧). These are the shoes I currently use.”
“Can I take a look?”
With my permission, he slowly reached towards the black radish and lifted his shoe.
As if he were looking at a newborn baby, he looked around here and there with delicate and gentle hands.
That look was the most serious look of Ludbio he had ever seen.
“… … It is beautiful.”
The first words that came out of his mouth were compliments.
“Not only the joints, but even the materials used can be said to be high-end products. Considering that it’s a relic, it’s surprising who the hell put the narrative into this object.”
Putting down the black radish again, he took a slow breath, feeling the heat as if to let go of his excitement, and looked at me.
“So how do you want me to touch this child?”
It means that you will listen to my request.
I smiled and took out the ingredients I had put in the cube one by one and started putting them next to the black radish.
[Name: Higher Essence of the Dark Spirit]
[Explanation: Originally, it should have been immortal. It is the essence of the dark spirit that has returned to nothingness. It seems like you can feel the endless darkness just by looking at it.]
[Name: Thunder God’s Stone]
[Description: A stone containing the power of the Thunder God. A stone that emits a powerful electric current that increases affinity with spirits.]
[Name: Scales of the Evil Dragon]
[Description: Supremacy of magic. Scales that can be said to be the dragon’s armor. Currently, under the influence of the evil dragon, it is in a state of being tainted with an aura of darkness that knows no end. It appears to have strong resistance from magic.]
“I’ve prepared this amount of materials to strengthen, but what about it?”
I took out all the materials I had prepared for this reinforcement and looked at him.
With his mouth wide open, he has the most surprised expression I’ve ever seen.
“This, this, this, this, this.”
I can’t even put into words how shocked I am.
“Hey, Grandpa? grandfather? Why are you like that?”
Embarrassed, as if not understanding such a reaction, Elena grabs Ludvio’s body and shakes it.
He closed and opened his eyes once as if he had finally come to his senses.
“Wait, where did you get these?! I’ve been a maestro for decades, but it’s the first time I’ve seen all these ingredients in one place!”
Well, it wasn’t that his reaction was incomprehensible.
Even ‘Essence of the Higher Dark Spirit’ is an item that, as far as I know, has never even appeared on the market at this time, and ‘Thunder God’s Stone’ is also not properly released on the market.
‘Evil Dragon’s Scales’ is a fresh material that has just been caught, so it will probably be the first time in the world to be released.
“Grandpa, what the hell is this that makes you so surprised?”
In response, she looked at the scales in front of her and slowly reached out her hand.
“that. It is the scale of the evil dragon Fafnir.”
“yes yes?! Fah, Fafnir is a dragon that almost destroyed an island in the past!”
“okay. I’ve heard that you’ve recently succeeded in subduing Fafnir in the Vatican, but you didn’t know that a byproduct would come from here.”
It seems that the credit for the subjugation of Fafnir has already spread to Jeju parish.
It seems that the Vatican used this news for their own propaganda.
“I participated in that raid too. It’s a by-product from that, so you don’t have to worry about the source. so… … Would that be possible?”
He is one of the most outstanding shoe artisans I know.
There was no other artisan who could handle such materials right now.
“I would like the maestro to show off his creativity to the fullest.”
At my words, he let out a sigh, got up from his seat, picked up a bottle of wine from the corner of the table, and began to drink it.
The ever-moving Mokwooldae and the ever-decreasing wines.
He drank a bottle in an instant and looked at me while wiping his lips.
“… … I’ve put down my hammer and leather for a long time. I am lamenting the reality that has come to me now. I already thought I had lost my aspirations as a craftsman.”
bang! He thumps his chest as he puts the wine bottle down with a noise.
“by the way. That’s not it. Hearing you speak, seeing the objects placed here, the desire began to move. membrane… … It burned hotly as if it would set my heart on fire! Even wine can’t quench this heat! As if you want to pick up a hammer and a needle right now.”
“… … grandfather.”
Elena’s eyes began to moisten when she saw Ludvio like that.
“Let me try it. You are the one who set fire to the dying old man’s heart, how could I refuse your request!”
Saying so, Ludvio stood up, immediately put on the coat hanging from the chair and stood up.
“First of all, I have to go down to the village and clean the workshop. Elena, can you help me a little?”
“… … yes grandfather!”
Unlike what I’ve seen so far, he shows a very passionate look.
Seeing that, I smiled and got up from my seat.
“Let’s go together. I will help.”
It’s my job to make my own baby, so of course I have to help out too, right?
