Why Ignorant Harems Are Dangerous chapter 27
27 – #07. The rats in the gutter (2)
About three days took refuge in the underground waterway.
Of course, in the meantime, my body couldn’t be completely healed, but Jack waited for my recovery as much as possible, providing some expensive potion for some reason.
“Brother. My body is fine…… What, did you stay with the little girl?”
He checked Lenny and immediately threw her tobacco on the floor and trampled it with his boots.
It is said that smoking is not allowed in places where children are present.
I’ve seen what they’ve been doing, Jack in particular, on the surface, to say the least, a group of thugs, but he always said that at least he wasn’t smoking in the presence of children.
“Yes. It’s nice that the little girl is also the same.”
Speaking itself felt like being sarcastic somewhere, but it wasn’t a bad feeling because the person who actually spoke was cool.
In fact, Lenny is also nodding her head in agreement with Jack’s words.
“Anyway, how is your body?”
“Even though it’s not perfect yet, the pain is almost gone.”
Jack laughed happily, but I wanted to get down to business.
In this fantasy world, potions were quite expensive, so from the first day I applied and drank them, I was able to move to some extent.
What I did there was to explore this area.
I met various people around me, and also learned various information while exploring the surrounding geography.
One of the things I found out was the identity of this man.
About 7 years ago, when the copyright of the black market in the Holy Land was torn apart and divided into a dispute, I heard that Jack suddenly appeared and established his own power with only his fist.
Since then, he has built his own domain by leading businesses in the dark and the bright, somewhere in between, definitely looking for gaps in businesses related to alcohol and prostitution.
Prostitution in the Holy Land.
Unless it was crazy, it didn’t seem possible, but in fact, Jack said that he had been in charge of such a business in the shadows until Cecilia came to power, no matter what.
A man who grew up a business in the Holy Land single-blooded, and established a position within the Holy Land with his unique skills.
A man like that wouldn’t have done a favor for no reason.
After all, nothing is free in this world.
Especially if it’s related to business.
“Jack. Can we talk separately for a moment?”
That wasn’t something to say at Lenny’s side.
At my words, he looked at me questioningly for a moment, but then he nodded his head, pointing with his finger to the other side and nodding at him.
“Good. Then little girl? I am waiting for this.”
He handed Lenny something like a lollipop and turned around.
This gutter area is always dark and damp because it is lit with torches.
The smell of burning oiled torches mixed with the smell of filthy water did not give off a very pleasant scent, and the occasional croaking of rats added to the atmosphere.

Did you walk like that for a while?
I didn’t even feel like I had walked, but I don’t know how many times I’ve turned and moved because the road was narrow and complicated.
I thought about it for a moment, but wouldn’t there be no way to find it if I decided to hide in a place like this?
It was only after arriving at a dark dead end that Jack opened his mouth.
“Do you have something to say?”
“I want you to explain what I am going to do.”
Never expected favors without reason.
Jack had a strong resentment towards Cecilia, and it was safe to assume that, apart from my heart, our understanding coincided in the current situation.
“I’ve heard that patients do things on their own, but what has been the result of being disturbed here and there?”
“I have no intention of talking about your business.”
“It should be.”
At my words, he nodded his head as if it were natural.
“What’s wrong with humans pursuing s*x? People who wanted to make money found me, both women and men, and I connected them with people who wanted to have s*x with their bodies. If you get caught on this, you will be in trouble.”
“It’s a natural economy,” He said.
Jack’s theory was that being honest with one’s desires was bad because money was needed rather than forcible capture, and people who were interested in this field were gathered and connected.
I had no intention of saying anything about that part.
Even if you think it’s bad, it’s not a good look to talk about past problems toward your benefactor.
“I don’t want to talk about the past, but it’s true that we’re moving like a resistance here, right?”
Otherwise, there would be no way they would gather a lot of armed men and run an arsenal.
To be honest, it was a coincidence that I found it, but even if it wasn’t, I kind of got a feeling from Jack and his gang hiding in a gutter like this.
“Resistance. It’s not that grandiose.”
“We are just idiots who gave up too late. It’s not worth stepping out now, and it’s a natural battle to fail if you try to move forward.”
About a hundred people hid in this sewer area.
Of course, it was quite threatening that there were armed men lurking underground, but if the opponents were the Holy Knights and Standing Army under the direct control of the Holy Kingdom, the story was different.
“When everyone else runs away, we’re doing this because we couldn’t do it. If you go out, you will be arrested right away and judged by summary. But it hurt my pride to throw away my name and run away secretly.”
It’s a battle without a win no matter who sees it.
Speaking of Holy Knights, they are regarded as the ultimate weapon of mankind to deal with the demons.
Even a normal knight would make you wonder if they were human, but those who reached the rank of paladin were in fact difficult to judge by the human category.
“So what should I do?”
“You are more rational than I thought. Then why are you so carefree if I sell her older brother to her saintess?”
“If I had thought of that, I would have done the minimum necessary treatment and passed it on. The fact that the prisoner is released so that he can move has erased that possibility.”
Apparently, Jack was planning to use me to plot something.
He was willing to cooperate if it helped my escape, but if it didn’t, I needed to think about it a bit.
“Tell me what you want from me. I think we can talk fairly with each other that way.”
“Well, since you say this, I have nothing to say.”
He laughs shyly, takes out a tobacco, and bites off the tip with his teeth.
The acrid scent of tobacco covers the stinky and disgusting smell of the gutter. Jack had been smoking for a while, and I just looked at him like that.
“Tsk. Lost, lost I didn’t mean to say that.”
Jack laughed awkwardly for a moment, then threw the burnt butt on the floor and trampled it.
“…… I said we weren’t like a resistance, but it’s definitely true that we initially moved to resist the current system.”
I was vaguely aware of it.
If it wasn’t for that reason, I wouldn’t have gathered such weapons and talented people.
However, there were too few people here.
The quality of armament was only at the level of ordinary soldiers, but can this amount of people really be able to deal with the holy knights or standing armies of the Holy Kingdom lurking above?
I don’t think Jack is stupid enough not to know that.
In fact, he smiled bitterly and opened his mouth.
“There were some guys leaving, but it was definitely a good start. There were still church members connected with us, and we were still in control of the nearby commercial districts.”
“Are you still on the ground at that time?”
“Well, it was.”
But they, including Jack, seemed to be stuck in this underground waterway.
It is too fast and extreme for a business that dominated the Chengdu area in the past to fall. It is said that even if a rich man goes bankrupt, it will last for three years, but wasn’t that the case with them?
“A saintess is a woman who denies people’s desires themselves, but her ability alone is real.”
Cecilia, who used to show only a bright side of herself with her usual fuss.
However, there seemed to be a serious gap between the way I remembered her and the way Jack remembered her.
“First of all, the funding line was blocked. As soon as the existence of the remaining party was confirmed, the nearby exchange office was forcibly closed, and all supplies leading to the surrounding area were banned.”
Jack stuck out his tongue, saying it was absurd to think about it again.
“After that, we sprayed people and identified the place where we were located as much as possible, banned entry to the area and blocked land routes, and gained support under the pretext of eradicating crime, leading to forcible demolition.”
It sounds simple, but even if you think about the modern case, you can see how far this shadow industry has spread to every corner of the city.
That’s not going to be easy just because the ruling class wants to get hold of it.
Compared to countries that cannot be active in public, those who hide in the shadows can hide their appearance at any time, and can change their location from time to time through branches extending to various places.

Did you blow them all up?
It was only now that I realized that Cecilia was such a woman.
“She is frankly resentful, but she is competent. With all of her hands and feet already cut off, the only place we could go was this gutter, and time passed like that.”
Jack spoke out as if to help himself.
Cecilia pulled out her sword to clean up the underworld, the black market, and the dark industry, and Jack and his gang had no choice but to be defeated one-sidedly.
“She told us we were gutter rats. She wanted to give such a woman a shot, but with her funding cut off, she felt that she was at her limit.”
Then she reached out a finger saying that she had found me.
“She won’t ask the saintess why she’s being chased. In the meantime, one thing. Are you sure you plan to get out of this city and out of the castle?”
He nodded at the question.
I had no intention of hiding it in the first place. From the point of view of being chased by the saint, it was clear that she would not be able to survive in this city.
“I can help you escape this city.”
Jack punched him in the chest and pulled the corners of his mouth into a laugh.
“Ever since then, he is a man who has been doing business around here. I dare to assure you that I will be much better than you, because the geography of the surroundings is clear.”
“…… I don’t know why you’re doing this.”
Of course, since I, Lenny, and the geography of the Holy Land were not known, it would be helpful if he doubled as a guide, but why would Jack go so far?
“If the saintess is looking for it so desperately, she wants to take you away and feed you some candy, and the other thing is that she intends to take our children outside while helping you escape.”
“…… In short, it is a decoy role.”
“I have no intention of denying it.”
It is a natural fact that if I go outside and move, it will be discovered someday.
I don’t know Jack’s skills, but at least it seemed like it would be helpful if he was at least a guide to a person who was familiar with the geography of the area and was active in the shadows.
“How is it? Do you have any plans to give that dog-like saint a blow?”
Personally, I had a deep relationship with Cecilia, so it was a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of a bit of
“That’s not bad, but I hope she swears at saints in moderation.”
“Why? Is it a sin to say that a rude b*tch is rude?”
Yes, I feel uncomfortable if I keep doing that.
No matter how this situation is, it wasn’t very pleasant to hear the curse of someone I was once close to.
