As if to add insult to injury from the contents of the mission, Alchemy’s message did not even stand out properly.
She thought it was just a simple error. In fact, there were a lot of errors recently. It could be the aftereffect of the update.
“Sigh, I’m going crazy…”
[If I can’t sleep, I’ll just lie down and close my eyes. Why do you play games with me?!]
It was awkward to have to visit Griffith at this late hour. Additionally, the purpose was impure.
Lelia pointed to her forehead, recalling a misunderstanding she received while visiting Kalix during the night.
“What if Griffith comes out like that?”
Just imagining it was disastrous.
[Should I just ignore it?]
But according to the notice about the last mission…
“If there’s a penalty effect, actions will be forced.”
It was the difference between forcibly performing the mission or doing it by herself.
No matter how hard she thought, the latter was better. It was terrible to imagine that her body would move regardless of her will.
Eventually, Lelia started moving her body as about five minutes were left.
[Let’s go for now. If he’s sleeping, you can secretly do it and leave.]
She felt uncomfortable because she kept doing things she shouldn’t do to her friends.
[What if I force him to do it?]
She imagined grabbing Griffith tightly by his head and kissing him forcibly.
Lelia shuddered and hurried out of the room.
Late at night, Lelia walked down the hallway nervous.
Only a small lamp was turned on in the hallway, and there were no servants passing by.
Sometimes the knights patrol, but it was clear now.
Lelia hurried to Griffith’s room, which she had seen earlier.
[Oh, I shouldn’t do this.]
Holding the doorknob, she looked around and carefully went inside.
It was dark and quiet in the room. It was clear that he was sleeping.
She walked slowly toward the bedroom…
Griffith, who she expected to be sleeping, stood by the window and looked at her.
“What’s going on at this hour?”
He, wearing a black gown, asked in a tired voice, as if it had not been long since he washed up.
“Like a stray cat… Is this your hobby?”
For some reason, Lelia’s expression was wrinkled by the bone-like joke.
Thinking that she couldn’t help it, Lelia coughed loudly and approached him.
“That’s… I know. I have a favor to ask of you.”
“It must be urgent enough to visit me at this hour.”
Griffith spoke leisurely, still leaning against the window.
Lelia seemed to be impatient with his relaxed attitude.
His attitude was as if to say he knew everything was strange. That can’t be true.
“Griffith, maybe… No matter what I do, I just… Can you hold on to me just once?”
Griffith smiled quietly while looking at her without an answer.
Lelia’s forehead continued wrinkling. She didn’t notice it until she came close.
Griffith’s silk gown was see-through… He was naked.
Turning away from his bare chest, Lelia opened her mouth again.
“It’s not dangerous. It’s meaningless, so just once…”
“Why? Are you going to kiss me?”
Lelia looked at him with surprised eyes.
“What? How did you know?”
For some reason, the hair all over her body stood on end from anxiety.
Strangely, there seemed to be a warning sound signaling danger in her head.
“Griffith… What is it?”
“I’m kidding. I guess you’re serious.”
Griffith said it was a joke, but he didn’t laugh at all.
“Well, if that’s the case, feel free.”
However, when she saw Griffith approaching the bed and closing his eyes, her mind went blank.
As time ticked away, the remaining time was getting tight.
Okay, let’s take care of the item first.
Lelia carefully approached the bed.
Griffith sat down and closed his eyes, supporting himself with both hands.
Griffith with his eyes closed looked really beautiful. To the point where one could hardly think in the moment.
However, Lelia came to her senses and slowly put her hand on Griffith’s cheek.
In that moment, she was surprised by the feeling of his cheeks being colder than she expected.
Lelia slowly lowered her lips even though she felt somewhat empty.
There was a sense of severe shame for a moment that all three of the others except Romeo had been kissed by her.
She can’t believe she did this with her childhood friends. She was upset as if she were kissing a bitter persimmon.
Her lips fell off his with a creepy feeling.
At the same time, she heard a ringing sound.
- Mission: Make a special recipe item right now.
- System: 1 minute and 58 seconds
What’s this? Make it right now?
Looking at the tight time limit, Lelia turned around and immediately checked the production screen.
“Wait, Griffith. I’m terribly sorry.”
Behind her, Griffith smiled with his eyes open.
Then, as if savoring the cute kiss a while ago, he smoothed his lips with his hands.
- Love potion
– List of ingredients you need.
– Love kiss decision (1/1)
Lelia breathed out in relief. Fortunately, the ingredient was checked.
Also, if Alchemy appeared and chatted cheekily, saying, “Is that a kiss?” she might have just taken off her necklace.
Lelia proceeded with the production immediately.
- Finished producing
- Mission: Drink the potion of love right now
- System: 58 seconds
Something’s definitely wrong.
Lelia turned her head, with the feeling of her hair standing up suddenly.
Griffith was asking with an expression of ignorance.
“No way… No way. That can’t be true.’
Lelia looked at Griffith with suspicious eyes and called Alchemy inwardly.
- Can’t speak…
[What is this…?]
Before leaving the Imperial Castle, Lelia recalled seeing a conversation between Griffith and Romeo due to a system error.
It could not be said that there was no way it could happen.
That someone can hack into the game system.
In addition, Griffith had the divine power, the absolute power in this world. If it’s that power, maybe…
‘Did the system get hacked?’
- Can’t speak…
*(That bug occurred)*
Oh… Lelia sighed inside and touched her forehead.
“Griffy, you can’t be…”
It was then.
- System: Time limit exceeded
- Penalty effect
- Your actions will be forced to complete the mission-
In the end, a concerning situation began to take place.
It was an instant.
Lelia felt a small bottle of medicine in her palm. She got goosebumps.
Indeed, the body was moving against her will.
Her hand opened the medicine bottle and poured it straight into her mouth.
Swallowing, she closed her eyes as she felt something hot passing by her throat.
She felt like her eyes were trying to open by force, but she endured with all her might.
“Lelia, what’s wrong?”
Griffith rose up wondering and approached Lelia.
She could feel his hand stroking the top of her head.
“You look in pain.”
“… Griffith, what the hell are you doing?!”
“Do you need my help?”
She was holding out as hard as she could, but she felt that she would soon reach her limit.
“I don’t know what it is, but why are you holding on like that? You’re exhausted.”
It was then.
Too rough to be called a knock came from the door.
Subsequently, the door opened with a thud.
The voice that followed…
“Hey, Griffith! Are you sleeping?”
Griffith turned his head in annoyance.
It was at that moment when Griffith tried to prevent Kalix from approaching by using his sacred power.
Suddenly, with a tremendous, rupturing sound, the window on the right broke and debris flew in.
Griffith instinctively fell to the other side, holding Lelia in his arms as if protecting her.
Then a few seconds later.
When he came to his senses…
Griffith ignored the swear word spewing inside.
Kalix was bound by sacred power and said, “What? What’s going on?” He scremed, “Hey!”
In his arms, Lelia was staring at the window with surprised eyes.
And standing by the window and approaching with a cold face…
Lelia blinked and called out to Oscar.
What’s happening now?
- Mission complete
- The system will be disconnected.
- Reboot for security system re-check. It takes a certain amount of time to recover to its original state.
*[Please save me. Save Alchemy from the hacker.] ㅁಥ*)*
All the messages started popping up one after another.
Lelia noticed that she no longer felt the force that was compulsorily controlling her body.
All that time she put strength into her eyes, so all her facial muscles were sore.
However, before Lelia could blame Griffith, they collapsed together.
Oscar, who approached in an instant, pulled out a sword and pointed it at Griffith’s
“Ha ha… Really… There are cases like this…”
Griffith muttered, spitting out a frustrated, false laugh.
It’s a situation that he barely made happen with all his strength… Yet, he’s going to put his precious fruit in someone else’s mouth.
“Oh, Oscar. Hold on!”
After grasping the situation, Lelia was surprised and raised herself. The most urgent thing was to stop Oscar.
So she ran into Oscar’s arms to calm him down and grabbed him by the waist.
In that passing moment…
“What is this good scent?”
Lelia looked up with blank eyes.
