The Incubus System Chapter 373. Sudden Trip II
Since he didn't answer me, I decided to calm him down.
"Don't worry. I know what I'm doing. I won't do stupid things," I added. This was indeed an unusual thing for me and I understand his concern considering what happened yesterday.
But my words didn't manage to get rid of his worry.
"You know... We've been friends for a long time. You can say anything to me . If you have a problem, just say it. Even though I can't help you, at least you don't feel alone. I can lighten your burden," he said in a calmer tone.
"I appreciate it. But I don't need anything." I couldn't deny, I was grateful to have a friend who was worried about me. Not only him but also everyone who believed in me. Especially my partners. Someday... I wanted to reveal my identity to him. No. But also to the world. That I'm the great demon... Unfortunately, I was not sure they would accept me. As for Larry, since I didn't want to add to his worries over my departure to the dark dimension, I thought it was better to say it after I got back.
"I just hope you could keep your word," I reminded him.
His face turned pale as soon as he understood what I meant. It was in my previous message.
"Don't worry I won't tell Ruby. I bet she will lock you in the basement if she finds out," he said in a shudder.
"You know her so well." Then I took a sip of my coffee. Not only Larry, but I also asked Tiffany to keep it a secret for the same reason and Tiffany agreed. As for Mrs Clea, I decided to say my goodbye not as Ethan, but as the great demon. Well, I wouldn't say it bluntly and plan to use another excuse. She would be suspicious of me if she found Ethan Strongheart and The Great Demon disappeared at the same time.
"When will you come back" he asked.
My hand lowered my cup.
"Maybe when college is about to start." Actually, I didn't know when this would be finished and not sure 3 months was enough to solve this problem (Ethan's 2nd semester of college break coincides with the summer break). But I would think of another way if I needed extra time. With my special connection with Diamond, it shouldn't be a problem.
"Isn't that too long Are you going to spend all your holiday there" He couldn't accept my excuse.
"Why not" I said with a shrug before I took another sip of my coffee.
Again, my words left him speechless for a while.
"Dude... Are you planning to become a farmer" he made a random guess.
It managed to make me cough and almost spill my drink.
"Stop drawing random conclusions," I said with a frown. My hand took a napkin to clean my mouth.
"Then what are you going to do there" he frowned in confusion. Then he gasped as he realized something.
"Oh... Wait... They are an old couple, right Do they have children" he asked curiously.
Even though his question confused me, I decided to answer it.
"No. The woman miscarried before their child was born." Of course, I mean Lilieth.
Like a detective trying to solve a case, Larry's hand rubbed his chin. His eyes looked at me with a serious look.
"Let me guess, is the old man dying Or maybe sick" he guessed again.
My thoughts drifted to Lord Damon. Even though Tania said he was weakened, he didn't look like that when I met him. In fact, he looked strong and his aura alone was enough to prove it. So... Dying was not the right word. But saying he was weakened sounded odd.
"You can say he is sick," I said.
"Both of them"
"Both of them," I repeated since Lilieth also weakened after her miscarriage. Although she looked fine at our last meeting.
He took his hand away from his chin and dropped his back against the sofa backrest. His eyes remained on me and his mouth slightly opened.
"Ah... Shit. I get it... I get it now. You're more cunning than I thought. But I won't blame you for this." He said it as if he just caught me committing a big crime.
"What Why" I said in confusion.
"You're planning to treat them well since you're after their inheritance, right They are sickly and old. You are their distant relatives. With a will, the court will give it to you for sure," he gave his stupid analysis. But the way he said it made it sound like a real thing.
"The hell! Of course not!" I retorted. But then, I pressed my lips. On second thought, it was kinda like what he said. I took over Damian's duties and got all his inheritance, the dark dimension. The difference was, it wasn't me who wanted it. But the story itself was similar to that.
Upon my silence, a triumphant grin appeared on Larry's face.
"See! I knew it! Oh my God! I didn't know you that cunning, dude," he said in excitement as if he had solved a big case.
"It's not what you think. I just want to help with their responsibilities," I retorted again.
This time he gave me an annoying smile.
"It's okay, buddy. I won't judge you. Besides, if it's their last wish. Why not"
And I replied with a flat stare.
"Do I look that low"
He shrugged nonchalantly.
"Who knows It's legal anyway."
"I'm just helping them with a few things. That's all," I clarified. Unfortunately, I couldn't say what it was bluntly.
"Helping them about what" he asked.
"Farming," I said in a nonchalant tone. Exp farming (or exp grinding in RPG games terms) to be exact since I had to face a lot of battles there. I knew this conversation would only lead me to nowhere if I didn't tell him the truth so I gave up on explaining it to him.
"Ha! So you do want to become a farmer!" He pointed at me as if I was a criminal caught in the act.
While I replied with a flat stare since we returned to square one.
