andsome face was amplified by his smile.

 ‘Annoyingly good looking.’

 No matter how hard Jinhyuk tried, he was not confident enough to catch up to that face.
He found it funny to be jealous of a person’s face and quickly moved on.

 “Ah, Mr.
Jonathan, s-so the thing is…”

 The staff smiled awkwardly and looked away.
This handsome man seems to be Jonathan.
There was an awkward vibe, but didn’t care too much.
Couldn’t be too bad, he thought.
Jinhyuk stretched out his hand for a handshake.

 “Are you Jonathan?”


 “I want to hire you.
The task isn’t very difficult.”

 “Sounds good.
Let’s discuss and write the contract directly.
It costs more if you pay a brokerage fee to the guild.”

 Jonathan shook Jinhyuk’s hand.
As they disappeared in the distance, the staff clicked his tongue in shame.

 ‘Such a valuable figure shouldn’t spend money on such a pretentious mercenary.’

 Not bad as a person, but not good for a mercenary.

 Because he’s valued at 40 million derats just for his face.

 ‘Well, I guess it’s none of my business?’

 Seeing the diamond Jinhyuk had left behind, the staff couldn’t hold back their laughter.
Reaching out to take it, a tiny hand sharply grabbed the diamond first.

 “I-I’ll be taking this back.”

The staff sighed as Lilil left with the diamond.

 ‘A smart daughter with a rich gentleman… ’

 Leaving the area with the staff, Jinhyuk and Lilil took Jonathan and sat down at another table.
The Mercenary Guild also serves as a restaurant, so they thought of having the conversation while filling their stomach.
Jinhyuk spoke up after ordering a simple soup.

 “I’m commissioning for an escort on the way to the capital.
My master lady is entering the academy this year.”

 “Oh, that’s wonderful, isn’t it? I also graduated from the academy five years ago.
I’m happy to escort someone who’ll be my junior.”

 “Then, should I give you 40 million derats right now?”

 “Ah, there’s something I want to tell you.”

 Jonathan’s expression darkened.
What’s wrong with paying? Jinhyuk was puzzled.
Jonathan looked around before speaking again.

 “There are a lot of low-level mercenaries here.
You never know what they will do for your money.”

 “Ah, are you worried about that?”

 Not really a concern.
Or so he thought, until he considered Lilil’s magical strength.
It’d be bothersome to face other threats after spending money without much thought.

 “Besides, even though we are mercenaries, but the Mokidi Bandits are famous these days.”

 “Mokidi Bandits?”

 “Yeah, they’ve settled around here, and they’re very vicious.”

 Bandits are usually a path taken by those who never even went to the academy.
However, the Mokidi Bandits’ leader is an Academy graduate for some reason.
Because of that even with a strong escort, the best way to deal with them was to not be their target.

 “They steal all money they can see, and sell all humans into slavery… Among them, those with good looks are sold at a store as prostitutes.
As someone as handsome as I am, it is something very terrifying.”

 You’re more terrifying to say you’re handsome with your own mouth, Jinhyuk thought, but he resisted from saying that and changed the topic.
Other than protecting Lilil’s mental health, he didn’t want to hear Jonathan boast about his looks.

 “I see.
The soup’s here just in time, let us dig in.”

 “ah! It’s broccoli soup.
Broccoli makes me more handsome… ”

 “Shut up before I cancel the contract.”

 “Oh, please don’t say bad words~.”

 Jinhyuk was at a loss for his words, so he decided to just eat the soup.

 * * *

 “Another jackpot.”

 A man grinned as he brushed off his blood-stained sword.
The driver and escort were dead, and everyone in the wagon was tied with ropes.

 “Looks like they were on the road to the academy…They are young, so I should be able to get a good deal.”

 A man.
Mokidi, the leader of the Mokidi Bandits.

 Mokidi had his men take everyone down.
They looked like academy freshmen, their eyes were trembling in disbelief.

 “Why?Thought you were some hot shit for having some talent? Didn’t expect this to happen? Are you fucking stupid?”

 Mokidi smiled vulgarly and sheathed his sword.

 “Should’ve at least got a good escort.
What were you thinking with such a weak bastard? I don’t think he even graduated from the academy properly.”

 Mokidi laughed as he nudged the dead escort’s head with his foot.
Then, a man rushed over.
It was Meus, who was in charge of intelligence in the Mokidi Bandits.

 “Mokidi, I have incredible news for you.”

 “what? Tell me.”

 “Soon, another carriage will come here to the academy.”

 “okay? Why’s that incredible news?”

 “Because the people riding it are incredible.”

 “Who is riding? Can’t mess with the nobles.
That becomes bothersome.”

 “Haha, don’t worry.

 Meus opened up two pieces of paper with a picture of a woman on it.

 “The name of this innocent-looking girl is Lilil.
She is the eldest daughter of the fallen Schvier family.”

 “The Schvier family? They got screwed over by becoming evil spirits.
If she’s surely Schvier Lilil, she’ll definitely sell for a very, very high price.
There are crazy bastards out there that’s into that kind of shit.”

 “Not only that.
Lilil recently summoned, and it seems like he can create diamonds to his heart’s content.”

 “No way.”

 “As a bonus, there’s also the daughter from the goblin battlefield.”

 “Oh, this bitch’s my type.”

 Mokidi asked as he licked his lips.

 “Any escorts with these bastards?”

 “Oh, there is one, but you don’t have to worry.”

 “Who is it?”

 “It’s Jonathan.”

 “Pfft, ha ha! That dumbass is the escort? This is so… he he.”

 This was truly incredible news, alright, thought Mokidi, as he started preparing.

 Prepare to take on Lilil’s carriage.
