Chapter 3: To Do What Is Necessary [1]

so how was a nobody even able to steal an item from your noble residence? ”, Neil said

”Thats something we don know or will ever know but what we do know is that Outlet possess a [Composite] concept. Im sure you understand the severity of such a thing ”, Louis emphasized clearly. Silence ensued….

Neil chuckled which led to Louis and Ernest frowning slightly.

”Is death what you seek of me? ”, Neil rhetorically yet coldly asked.

Louis remained quiet and thought before giving an answer, ” I understand what you might be thinking but there will others like you on this quest. If you do accept then anything you ask, we will deliver provided it doesn overstep our boundaries or go against our beliefs. ”

Neil thought for a moment and proceeded to ask a question, ” Is your Evergreen family attending the CloudEye Auction? ”

”Indeed, we are and from my guess you want a spot in, right? ”, Louiss lustrously pink lips arced into a smile.

”Sharp woman indeed. Since you already know, then this is the price you will need to pay and the only price worthy of my cooperation. ” Neil firmly planted his stance in this matter.

”Hmm…, well the spot is possible but the other 4 you are going with to take down Outlet also requested the same thing and only a single spot remains so you get what I mean, right N.E.I.L? ”, Louis smiled mysteriously

”What a cunning woman you are ”, Neil was reveling in this conversation. A cold yet indifferent smiled bloomed on his face and his azure eyes began to glow ever so slightly. Obviously, he understood what Louis meant by that, what she wanted after Outlets defeat and retrieval of the item was a battle to the death between him and the other clients. This will not only prevent anyone from obtaining the spot but all evidence of such an endeavor to vanish into smoke. The true definition of one winner and no second place.

So, she wants all of us to die huh, but if one of us does successful retrieve the item and kill the rest how would she go about taking the item from the possessor? No, I almost forgot the most important piece in this plot and that is she is NOBILITY. She could easily summon several Ethereal or Corporal [CINTHs] to just outright bombard the remaining person and successfully take the item. There are just too many methods she could employ here and considering that ability she examined earlier I can safely assume she is in possession of an ocular type concept, [Perception], [Inverse Observation] maybe [ Ayond Vision]? She is in the dark while Im exposed and then theres that guy Ernest. As expected of the natives of Burial Leaf Continent, unfortunately there is no other solution to enter the Auction except taking many risks with very high chances of failure, something I can agree with. I just have to accept this mission but I need to be extremely careful as I proceed, Neil thought.

”So do we have an agreement? ”, Louis said calmly.

”Very well, I wholeheartedly agree ”, Neil said with a mysterious smile.

”Good very good ”, The one to speak up was Ernest as he gave Neil an octagonal shaped object.

”That contains all data on Outlet and the names of your colleagues, including a 1000 Nu Matrixes to express our generosity ”, Louis spoke to Neil as she stood up from her seat.

”The mission will begin early afternoon lead by Ernest and the five of you. All you need to prioritize is the death of Outlet and retrieval of the item. ”, Ernest followed in suit, the pair and guards began to leave the building leaving the young Neil sipping once more on his ice-cold beverage.

When the pair left the building and began to head to the Evergreen mansion, she looked at Ernest and smiled mischievously, ” That Neil is quite interesting, I could only discover his identity as a [CINTH] but I wasn able to find what type of concept he possessed which intrigued me even more. It wouldn be far fetched to think he has a pseudo-[Composite] concept or a complete one. Ernest remember, don underestimate him or that woman because your only outcome would be death and if things succeed but not in the direction we wanted we can always retreat and try again. Don bury yourself to early. ”

”I understand Louis, but fear not I will not do anything that could lead me into damnation ”, Ernest assured Louis with a bright smile.

”I hope so ”, Louis muttered softly and thus the pair silently made their journey back to their residence.

Neil remained in the establishment relishing in his beverage while he chuckled to himself, ” What a pity, things won go as they planned. This Outlet character has me quite interested though. A [Composite] concept is something you don come by every often but its not worth mentioning in front of me. ” The glass was raised just Infront his face and his reflection revealed a carefree smile which spoke the confidence in himself and a ridiculing attitude of how stupid Louis looked down upon him. Neil just remained in the building as his gaze then diverted to the object Ernest gave him, ” The [TheroCortex], quite expensive I must say. Capable of storing almost anything, from memories, knowledge, organic to non-organic materials. Unfortunately these noble people are all stingy, this one is low grade and possess a reasonably small space.

Neil proceeded to stand up then directly went to the clerk and said, ” Talk about the Nobility in this City, specifically the house of Evergreen ”

The clerk looked Neil and didn respond, he simply ignored Neil and continued to serve drinks at the counter. Neil was confused for a moment and then understood the situation so he looked around him and tapped the counter three times with his index finger, spontaneously 5 Nu Matrixes appeared on the counter which the clerk swiped in an instant. The clerk looked at Neil and smiled, ” Very Well Sir, what would you like to know? ”

Neil looked at him with a serious expression, ” Everything. ”

Through all this nobody noticed a snow white looking bird stationed at a nearby windowsill which overlooked the entire conversation with a mysterious glint in its eyes.
