A week had passed since Mykel gave Lyneth the list of the names that would contribute to the story. He finally could enjoy his alone time in the park with the fresh air on his face, he never thought that Lyneth was a sex addict and it was a bit bothersome as if she was the one who owned him at least on the bed.

“Excuse me, mister,” A little girl’s voice was calling Mykel who was enjoying the air with his eyes closed and head facing the sky with a cigarette in his mouth.

Mykel opened his eyes and looked down. “Yes?” he asked as he put off his cigarette.

“Mister, you’re the guy who saved my mother, right?” The little girl asked while she nervously rub the back of her hand.

Mykel looked at her for quite a while then he remembered about the woman he saved during the breakout, Edith Levine. “Oh, you’re the older sister,” he said as he went on his knee and looked at the girl.

“Yeah! I’m here with my mom! I want you to see her!” The girl answered excitedly.

“Sure,” Mykel said with a smile on his face.

The girl brought Mykel to her mother who was sitting on the grass as she watched people having fun in the park.

“Mom!” The girl said as she ran toward Edith.

“Did you have fun, Merlin?” Edith asked as she stroked the girl and kissed her cheek.

“Mom, this is the guy who saved you!” Merlin said as she pointed at Mykel.

Edith turned her head and looked at Mykel who was standing not far from them. She then stood up and slowly walked toward Mykel since she hadn’t recovered fully from her injury. She grabbed Mykel’s hand so tightly and she was about to cry.

“Thank you for saving my life,” Edith said with her trembling voice.

Mykel shook his head. “No need to mention that, I’m glad that you made it,”

Edith nodded as she wiped her eyes with her shirt. “Would you like to have a sandwich? I made quite a lot today,” she said as she pointed at the basket she brought with her.

Mykel was planning to eat lunch after he was done smoking and since he was offered a sandwich, there was no reason for him to decline it.

Edith started to tell Mykel the reason why she was out there in District 14 and near the Azazel tower. It was because her husband died in the tower, her husband tried to get easy money from hunting demons but it didn’t go well. Miraculously, Edith awakened a day after her husband’s death, and since she didn’t work and had no money to support her small family, she decided to do the same thing.

Mykel wasn’t interested in her story until it struck him and remembered something from the story. There was a character in the story that possessed [Oracle] that allow the Awakener to find the secrets and the future events. That character was an orphan, a child that possessed all her mother’s skills the moment she passed away.

“Merlin,” Mykel said quietly as she stared at that little girl who was playing with a stranger’s dog.

“Hmm? Oh, yes, my daughter’s name is Merlin,” Edith said as she looked at Merlin. “I know it’s a boy’s name but I like that name,” she continued as she explained it to Mykel.

Mykel immediately opened the command system and checked Edith’s status screen.

[NAME: Edith Levine]

[LEVEL: 2]





[Oracle (Passive): The User can see the majority events of that will happen in the future and enlightenment that can help humans against the demon. (Current level 1. The chance to see the events in the near future and enlightenment is 10%)

[Revival (Passive): Once the User is taking a fatal blow, there is a chance to survive the blow. (Current level is 1. The chance to survive the fatal blow is 5% there is no limit on usage)

Mykel looked at Edith with disbelief and never thought the woman that he saved was actually the woman that was supposed to die in the story. Since he knew that he just found a diamond in the rough, he didn’t want to waste the opportunity to have her.

“So now that you can’t go to the tower because of your injury, you have no money to support your family?” Mykel asked as he looked at her.

“I’m a bit ashamed to say this but yes, and I’m desperate to find a job,” Edith answered as she looked down. “If can, I don’t want to go out there because I might die next time for real,” she continued as she showed her sour smile at Mykel.

“Do you want to work for me instead?” Mykel asked as he looked at Edith while he chewed the sandwich.

“Work for you?” Edith asked as she raised her eyebrows.

“Yes, I will pay you plenty without having to do anything,” Mykel answered as he looked at Edith but Edith interpreted it differently and started to chuckle uncomfortably. “I’m sorry, you must be thinking that I’m one of those guys, but no, I just need the skill that you have, your Oracle skill,” he explained.

Edith was surprised that Mykel knew the skill she had, but before she could ask about it to him, he stood up and put a cigarette in his mouth then it lit with hellfire. “As you can see, I’m an Awakener as well, and I need your skill to help me achieve what I want,” Mykel said as he smoked his cigarette.

“You really just need my skill?” Edith asked nervously since she wasn’t convinced with Mykel.

“Of course, your skill is what I need,” Mykel answered immediately. “If you don’t believe me, why don’t we go to the place where I work? It’s the building over there,” he said as he pointed at the Guild Association’s building.

“That’s…” Edith paused in her mid-sentence.

“Yes, that’s the Guild Association,” Mykel nodded as he looked at her. “So? Shall we go there so I can prove it to you?” he continued as he opened his arm and offered it to Edith.

Edith hesitated but Mykel managed to convince her and so Mykel brought Edith and Merlin into the Guild Association’s building. Merlin was so excited when she saw the inside of the building while Edith had to make sure that Merlin didn’t wander around the building.

Mykel was about to enter the lift but then one of the receptionists approached him. “Mister Mykel,”

Mykel turned around to look at her. “Yes?”

“The director wants to see you on the 61st floor, she said that she has brought the people that you asked,” The receptionist answered.

Mykel was a bit surprised to hear that Lyneth managed to get all of them in a week even though knowing those people were a bit of a pain to deal with. It was perfect timing as well since he brought Edith with him so he could introduce her to Lyneth.

“Alright, thank you for telling me,” Mykel said with a smile on his face that made the receptionist blush. “Shall we?” he asked as he looked at Edith.

Edith smiled and nodded in agreement then they entered the lift.

Merlin was so amazed that she went so high that everything looked so small.

As soon as the lift door opened, Mykel heard a loud commotion that came from one of the rooms and he already could tell where those guys were. He walked toward the door with Edith and Merlin followed him from behind.

Mykel looked at the room through the semi-glass door, he saw Lyneth staring at them with a bit of annoyance. He then entered the room and the commotion suddenly stopped as soon as they saw him. A young woman who was chewing gum popped the bubble the moment she saw his face.

“You’re finally here,” Lyneth said as she sighed.

“You should have called me that you have brought them all,” Mykel said as he looked at every single one of them.

“Well, looking at these people, I don’t think I could look away or they might fight against each other,” Lyneth answered as she looked at them. “Are you sure these are the right people you need?” she asked as she stared at Mykel from the corner of her eyes.

“Yes, these are the people that I need,” Mykel answered as he nodded his head.

Lyneth took a peek at Edith and Merlin. “And who’s she?” she asked. “Wait, don’t tell me you already have a wife and daughter?” Lyneth looked at Mykel with a shocked expression.

“No, she’s the person that I found myself. She possessed something that can give us the advantage in the future,” Mykel answered.

Mykel looked at Edith and pointed at the chair in front of him. “You can have a seat, Edith,”

Edith nodded and then sat down with Merlin sitting on her lap.

Mykel looked at every single one of them. “I know that you must be confused about why we brought you all here,” he said as he crossed his arms. “The answer for that is I will make you all the best Awakeners in the world and nobody will look down on you anymore,” he said with a smirk on his face.
