Mykel slowly opened his eyes and he saw a woman who was sleeping next to him. He sat up and looked at his body wrapped with bandages, he then stood up and looked at where he was through the glass window. He noticed the buildings around him and what was written on the billboard, he was in District 1.
“Mykel?” Lyneth stood up as soon as she noticed that Mykel wasn’t sleeping next to her. She then looked at Mykel who was standing on the balcony.
“Hey,” Lyneth said as she carefully grabbed Mykel’s arm. “How are you feeling?” she asked and she looked so concerned with his condition.
Mykel sighed and looked at her. “Do you have a cigarette?”
Lyneth chuckled as she went inside and grabbed a pack of cigarettes from her purse then went back outside. “Here, your favorite brand cigarette,” she said as she showed the pack of the cigarette.
Lyneth grabbed a cigarette and put it in his mouth then lit it up for him. “Do you know how worried I was when I saw you covered with blood and wounds? I thought you were dead,” she said as she looked at the street down below.
“Me neither, I never thought I would be able to leave that place alive,” Mykel said as he smoked the cigarette. “Speaking of it, did you see a small chest when you picked me up?” he asked as he looked at Lyneth.
Lyneth turned around and pointed at the safe inside the wardrobe. “I put it in the safe since you were holding it so tightly and thought it must be important to you,”
Mykel walked inside and opened the wardrobe, he looked at the safe then Lyneth barged in and opened the safe for him. “Here, I haven’t opened it since I was waiting for you to wake up so we can see it together,” she said as she gave the chest to Mykel.
Mykel put the chest on the bed and he opened it while Lyneth was watching it next to him.
“What’s that, a ring?” Lyneth asked as she looked at it closely.
Mykel grabbed it and a notification appeared.
[Ring of Fire: A ring that Azazel himself created to punish all the sinners by burning them with the fire that was forged in hell. When equipped, the User will attain a [Pyrokinesis] skill]
Mykel put it on and his whole body suddenly felt so warm as if he was bathing in a hot spring.

“So? What the ring does?” Lyneth asked as she looked at the ring on Mykel’s index finger.
Mykel grabbed a cigarette and put it in Lyneth’s mouth, Lyneth was so confused about it but she didn’t say anything and just stay put. Mykel looked at the cigarette and imagined it was being lit with a match, and suddenly the cigarette was lit and it surprised Lyneth. “What just happened?!”

Mykel chuckled with disbelief as he covered his face and shook his head. “This is amazing,”
Lyneth had no idea what happened but she was happy that Mykel looked so happy since she had never seen him like that before.
“Oh, I almost forgot, I bought you a new suit. Why don’t you try it on?” Lyneth said as she pointed at the suit in the wardrobe.
Mykel looked at the suit and immediately rubbed them and he could tell they were expensive. He put them on and he really liked them since they fit perfectly on his body and the navy blue color was his favorite color.
“Thank you, for everything,” Mykel said as he looked at Lyneth with a genuine smile on his face.
Lyneth wrapped her arms around Mykel’s neck with a smile on her face. “Now, how about we take a bath together? I will wash your body since you still can’t do much with those injuries on your body,”
Mykel closed his eyes as he sighed deeply. “Fine,”
After they both took a bath, Mykel put on his new suit and Lyneth also wore a nice dress.
“Come on,” Lyneth said as she walked past Mykel.
Mykel furrowed his forehead and looked at Lyneth with confusion. “Where to?”
“To meet my father, he wants to see you,” Lyneth answered as she held the door’s handle.
“What does he want from me?” Mykel asked as he walked toward the door.
“Well, I said that you’re my precious asset so he wants to look at you and why his daughter is charmed by a person like you,” Lyneth said as she watched Mykel walk past her.
“You just love sex, that’s the answer,” Mykel replied as he put a cigarette in his mouth and lit it up with hellfire to level up his [Magic] skill without costing his stamina.
“That’s true, but I wasn’t lying about what I just said,” Lyneth said as she walked next to Mykel.
Mykel looked at the Guild Association building, and it was the tallest building in District 1.
“Nervous?” Lyneth asked as she looked at Mykel.
“Why would I be nervous? It’s not like I’m seeing your father to propose his daughter,” Mykel answered as he walked into the building while Lyneth held her smile and followed him from behind.
They went to the top floor and Mykel couldn’t see anything but clouds from up there.
“Dad, I’m coming in,” Lyneth said as she knocked on the door.
The moment Lyneth opened the door she was a bit shocked when she saw Kastor sitting next to Marvin. She didn’t know that Kastor would be joining them but she didn’t panic at all and immediately told Mykel to come in.
Kastor stared at Mykel and Lyneth that seemed a bit too close for a colleague based on Marvin’s words. Mykel stared back at Kastor and it took Kastor a while until he looked away and decided to look at Lyneth. Mykel just smirked and sat on the opposite side of Marvin on the long table in the room.
“Before we start, why Kastor is here, dad? I thought we are going to have a private conversation here?” Lyneth asked as she stared at Kastor.
Marvin flipped his hand and looked at Lyneth with confusion. “What do you mean? He’s your fiancee and he’s a part of our family now,”
Lyneth crossed her arms and sighed. “So just because he’s my fiancee he can just sit there and get involved in my business? Even you have your own business that you don’t want me to know and intervene, so why should I let him in?”
Kastor closed his eyes and smiled. “Lyneth is right, Chairman, I shouldn’t be here in the first place. I will excuse myself,” he said as he stood up and then left the room.
“Why are you doing this, Lyn? He’s your fiancee and he will take over the Guild Association with you,” Marvin asked as he shook his head and squinted his eyes with confusion.
Lyneth took a deep breath as she stared at the ceiling. “I’m sorry to say this, dad, but you’re getting older and you start acting irrationally,” she said as she looked at Marvin. “Have I not done my job properly? I have been doing everything you told me ever since I’m a teenager and I always met your expectation. What makes you think that I’m not capable enough to run this on my own?” she asked as she frowned.
Lyneth sighed as she grabbed Marvin’s hand. “Can we just talk about this later? We have a more important matter to talk about, no?”
Marvin slightly pressed his lips together and nodded with understanding.
“What’s your name, young man,” Marvin asked as he judgingly stared at Mykel.
“Mykel Alester,” Mykel answered.
“So the M.A. in the notification was really you?” Marvin asked as he pointed his finger at Mykel.
“Yes, I was the one who cleared the tenth floor and killed the first demon lord if that’s what you’re going to ask,” Mykel answered as he rested his head on his fist.
Marvin closed his eyes as he raised his eyebrows.
“I heard from my daughter that you’re not interested in becoming a ranker or even joining the Guild Association, is there a reason why?” Marvin asked as he held his hand together and rest them on the table.
“Because I’m not interested in those things, and I just do what I want to do. The more important thing is that I want to become stronger than anyone,” Mykel answered.
Marvin leaned his body forward and stared at Mykel seriously. “Then what’s your goal?”
“My goal?” Mykel asked as he smirked and stared at Marvin. “I want to change the world,” he answered with a smile on his face.
