Ep.157 Into The World
Stardus is putting in more effort than ever to capture me – Lee Seola even called me separately to inform me of this and caution me.
I was lying down on the sofa, trying to rest after hearing her story.
Stardus is doing her best to catch me.
…But doesn’t that mean she hasn’t been doing her best until now?
“That’s not possible.”
Our daily lives are so just and intolerant of injustice. We are undoubtedly doing our best now and will continue to do so in the future. I don’t think there will be much of a difference. I thought Lee Seola was overreacting.
As I sat there lost in thought, the anchor on the TV in front of me continued speaking.
[…With the recent sale of Neantec Corporation, virtually all of South Korea’s major corporations are now under the umbrella of the Yuseong Enterprise. While there have been calls for caution from the political sphere, the anti-monopoly law aimed at preventing Yuseong Enterprise’s domination did not pass in this session of the National Assembly.]
Just as I finished my thoughts, news about the Yuseong Enterprise came up on TV.
As I was lost in thought about Stardus, I shifted my attention to the anchor’s words on the TV.
[Meanwhile, while Yuseong Enterprise Chairman Lee Seola is not in contact with the outside world except for her hero activities, she has climbed to the top of South Korea’s wealth rankings. Some are concerned that South Korea will become Lee Seola’s country…]
Hmm. Hasn’t that media outlet been silenced by Lee Seola yet? There are still channels that report critically on the Yuseong Enterprise.
Despite having some doubts, I nodded my head.
Yeah. Lee Seola has finally succeeded in eating up almost everything.
Soon, the political sphere and the media will be swallowed up too. Then, the Yuseong Enterprise will truly dominate South Korea. Except for the Hero Association, that is.
In the end, even though it’s a bit late, everything is going according to the original plan.
Then, that’s also straightforward.
I quickly finished my thoughts and stood up from my seat.
I should start preparing soon.
I covered Seo Jayoung, who was lying in bed with her stomach exposed, with just a thin blanket, and went up to my room.
Seo-eun and the others had gone down to the basement to develop a new suit a while ago.
That means it’s been a while since I’ve had some personal time.
With that judgment in mind, I went into my room and took out a book from the bookshelf near my desk.
It was my diary that I’ve been steadily writing in.
I’ll have to start writing in it more seriously soon too.
When I first started writing in it, I wondered how long I would have to keep writing. But I guess I won’t have to write in it soon.
With that brief thought, I took out the book.
It was to check what I had written in the early days after I fell into this world.
“Of course, it’s around this time.”
I muttered to myself.
Celest is rated as the strongest among the S-class villains. She’s going to resurrect soon.
And she’ll create a gathering of world villain alliance award winners, known as ‘Cathedral’.
Looking at what I had underlined in my diary, ‘Join Cathedral!’, I closed my eyes and thought for a moment.
As expected, things are slightly different in Korea because of my involvement, but the international community is still following the original flow.
And as expected, the world villain alliance leaders will soon create Cathedral and have their first meeting.
I drummed my fingers on the desk and was lost in thought for a moment.
Cathedral. In the original, it was an organization that was mentioned but not emphasized because no Korean villain participated.
But from a global perspective, it is quite an important organization. It’s a gathering of S-class villains, each with strong individuality and independence, and only the strongest of them all lead.
It looks dangerous and important, just from that fact alone.
Of course, in reality, it’s not that big of a deal. They just get together once in a while to exchange information and sometimes carry out terrorism.
Of course, that changes in the latter part of the original story.
“Hmm, alright. If it’s a request from Celest, I’ll take a heavy step for once.”
“However, there are conditions.”
When the messenger, who had been bowing his head, hesitated with a puzzled expression, Atlas leaned back on his throne and smiled as if he was pleased with his thoughts, and asked the messenger in front of him.
“Hey, do you happen to know Egostic?”
