eading all my movements.”

“I guess the rumor that he is the greatest talent wasn’t for nothing.”

Siegfried looked at Jamie as he listened to the woman.

Jamie was glaring at the woman.

‘Who the hell is she?’

Obviously he unfolded the shield.
It was in one piece, but the staff came through.

‘I’d rather think about it as a difference in strength.’

The staff moved inside as if it was one with the shield and then hit his head.

Thanks to that, he had a small bump on his head.

“Little boy, you don’t get how you got hit, right?”

“How did you do it?”

“A merchant never gives out the information for free.”

As Jamie stared at her without answering, Siegfried smiled and spoke to Kiriel.

“Even if he is a genius, he is a kid.
Stop joking around.”

“Huh? Aren’t you a kid too?”

“I crossed that age a long time back.”

“Right, the kid was called a great magician and then he turned arrogant.”

“No… I was never like that.”

Even Siegfried, who was like a serpent, was nothing in front of this old woman.

Kiriel snorted as if she felt glad for winning.

“This is an artefact.”

“Artefact? But I feel nothing from it.”

“Of course you don’t.
That is because it has the ability of anti-mage.”


‘Anti-mage’ was an enemy to magic.
The power made magic useless.

In other words, it has the ability to scatter mana, no wonder it passed through the shield like that.

“It is one of the most valuable things I own.”

If it had anti-mage ability then it wasn’t simply a high-value item.

Even calling it a national treasure wouldn’t be bad.

The owner of such a shabby store had such a thing…

He knew she wasn’t an ordinary old woman, but what was she doing here?

“He is a kid who seems to know of Anti-mage.
Does this grandma now seem like a great person?”

“How far can it go?”

Jamie asked a question instead.

Even the anti-mage was unable to neutralize all magic.
If all magic could be neutralized then dragons would have been brought down to nothing by humans.

Yet, the value of anti-mage didn’t decrease.
Even if it neutralized 1st class magic, it was of enormous value.

“Up to 5th class.”

“… where did you get it from?”

It is a secret.”

He knew she wouldn’t tell, but it was too much.

In other words, if one had to go against the woman, then a Great Magician would have to come down.

A 6th class couldn’t go against the 6th class nullifier.

“Let’s end this here?”

Siegfried, who was silent till then, stepped up.

We were talking about your stuff.”

And you asked me to listen till the end.”

“Yes, yes.
I have it.”

“Oh! Is that true?”

“Why would I like it? You rotten bastard.”

“Oh oh!”

“But not now.
You won't get it until at least Morena.”

“I will be staying here for 2 days.
No problem.
In the meantime, we can do some sightseeing.
Anyway, the purpose is to broaden the knowledge of young lord Jamie.”

Siegfried then asked.

“Then how much should I give?”

“Well, it is a price and it is open to negotiation.
But there is one problem.”



“What’s the problem?”

“The problem is that I have no intention of handing it over to you.”

Siegfried’s face went stiff.

Silence passed.

Jamie took turns looking at the two of them.

And Siegfried spoke first.

“Before, you definitely said that you would hand it over to me right away.”

“I did.”

“Then why did you change your mind? Maybe a fucker who offered more price showed up?”

Siegfried was quite angry seeing how he spoke, and he cursed too.

Despite being with him for a couple days, it was Jamie’s first time seeing the man lose his cool.

However, Kiriel responded in a relaxed voice.

What generous price when nothing has been suggested?”

“But why… what is it?”

“I don’t mean that I don’t want to sell it to you.”

“Then why…”

Siegfried grimaced as he didn’t understand the change in the woman’s intentions when Jamie spoke.

“You have something you want us to do, a request?”

“Ho oh! The kid seems smart witted.”


Siegfried titled his head at the world request.

Was there anything that she couldn’t get?

Kiriel answered.

“I am not omnipotent kid.”

“The day after tomorrow, a secret auction will be held.”

Secret auction.

A generic term for auctions held in the dark, selling things which couldn’t be disclosed.

For examples, slaves of different races prohibited by law, drugs, etc… when disclosed these things could cause a stir.

However, it wasn’t illegal to trade.

There would be no problem with that, but things like cursed objects which cause bloodshed and affliction just by possessing them, or valuables that were so precious that people would be assassinated.

Siegfried asked.

“What do you want us to get from there?”

“You will?”

At Jamie’s question, Siegfried nodded.

“Because it’s necessary.”

“It isn't illegal so you don’t have to worry.”

Kiriel smiled and continued.

“What you need to retrieve is the ‘Heart of Shadow Sheep’.”

Shadow Sheep.

The so-called spirit-like beast which didn’t belong to the world.

“If you bring that, I’ll give you what you want, very cheaply.”

Siegfried’s face contorted at the request.
