BOSS Transmigrates as a Little Cutie [Arc 2 – End] - 140
Translator: Yuzu — Ko-fi Chapter. Thank you!
Qing Yun left before taking a thoughtful look at the aircraft where Andrea was in. He had a feeling that something seemed wrong with the general he saw today, but when he went to probe again, the wrongness had disappeared.
Andrea sat in the aircraft and looked at the scale in his hand. Due to the intimidating power that emanated from the scale at all times, he could not treat it with a casual attitude.
He put the scale into a top-grade energy shield. Then as if he thought of something, he sent a message to his subordinates with his communicator: “Send the gift I prepared for Phil to him.”
Still unaware that Ilos had returned to the Gled family, Phil was now being treated in a private hospital.
On his back was a huge bloody scar, which was in the shape of a cat. Now, under the doctor’s operation, this scar is slowly disappearing.
The process was obviously extremely painful, and Phil’s entire face was distorted.
“This is only a temporary cover-up. You will need at least six months of treatment if you want the scar to disappear completely.” The doctor said to Phil.
The bond between the companion beast and the contract person is so strong that it can be said that they live and die together. Phil also used drugs to successfully kill his companion beast and hold on to his life, but this scar is the price he has to pay.
Even if the scar disappears according to the doctor’s words, the pain will be with Phil for life.
“No, I can’t wait that long. All I need is to be able to keep this scar from being noticed at the selection of the contract person in three days.” Phil wiped off the beads of sweat on his face and stroked his back expressionlessly.
“This cover will last until that time, but you will have to avoid some special drug solution to do so.” The doctor gave two more instructions before leaving.
At this time, a nurse brought a bouquet of flowers as well as a gift box: “Young Master Phil, General Andrea has sent you a gift.”
Phil immediately received the words and the gift box with a joyful face. He opened the gift box and found a black bracelet lying inside.
This bracelet is quite heavy and seems to be made of some special metal material. The moment Phil held it in his hand, his personal terminal even detected an abnormal magnetic field on the bracelet.
A card was under the bracelet, and on it, he was told to wear the bracelet when he participated in the selection and that it would bring him good luck.
The gift from his beloved, so why would Phil refuse it? He immediately put the bracelet on his wrist and at the same time sent a message to Andrea thanking him for the gift.
Andrea has returned home at this time. He looked at the message sent by Phil and could not help but hook the corners of his mouth.
He volunteered for the task of going to the palace to get His Majesty’s scale for the selection of the contract person. This was different from the job of arranging candidate placement that Andrea had thought of before, but it gave him more room to maneuver.
The bracelet he gave to Phil was not an ordinary bracelet, but a magnetic device that attracts the magnetic force on the shield where the scale was placed.
And this attraction is so strong that even if the scales get into someone else’s hands, they will automatically look for where Phil is.
When the time comes, the live stream will show the scene of His Majesty’s scale flying towards Phil of its own accord, so everyone will think that Phil is His Majesty’s chosen contract person and that the fit between them must be very high. Otherwise, there would never be such a situation where the companion beast actively seeks its master.
Moreover, as long as this scene appears, those candidates will not dare to snatch the scale from Phil’s hands out of respect for His Majesty. Naturally, they will not be able to reveal the truth that the shield was drawn to Phil’s bracelet.
Thinking of this, Andrea couldn’t help but reveal an ambitious smile. As long as Phil is qualified to be the contract person, he will then give the contracting method to Phil, so that the legendary and immensely powerful Valanst emperor will become a slave in Andrea’s hands.
After that, there will be no one to prevent him from ascending the throne!
Andrea once again instructed Phil to make sure he brought the bracelet he gave him at the selection.
He had just sent the message when he noticed that the system, which had been inexplicably quiet since this morning when he went to the palace, had issued another main task.
“Ding, the main task issued ‘Kill Ilos Gled’. The task reward is an in-system function of your choice. Failure will result in obliteration.”
Hearing the voice in his head, Andrea couldn’t help but freeze, suspicion flashing in his gaze. The system has never issued two main line tasks in a row. What is going on this time?
The price for failure is also obliteration, how can he have two lives? And didn’t Ilos die long ago? Why would the system issue such an obviously buggy mission this time?
Andrea called out to the system in his mind, but did not get a response from the system at all. Although the system has been very quiet, Andrea sensitively felt that the system even seemed to be avoiding something this time, completely turtled up.
This time, the selection of His Majesty’s contract person is about to begin. Due to the special nature of the candidates, this selection is controversial. Almost everyone in the empire is concerned about this ceremony that occurs only once every three years.
It is no wonder that the council’s decision is controversial. Since the fusion of the world, the world must live together with companion beasts. Humans will only be able to stimulate their potential and bring out their talents in certain areas after signing a contract with a companion beast with the same attributes.
This mode of survival has been going on in this world for thousands of years. People have a fixed impression that the companion beast’s level directly reflects the contracted person’s ability and that a person without a companion beast must be a loser.
With the exception, of course, of His Majesty Edmund, who is the only beast with a human form.
But perhaps because the emperor has been asleep for a long time, there have been more and more humans who cannot contract companion beasts. These humans can be said to have been discriminated against in their lives. So how can people not be surprised that they can now have the opportunity to become His Majesty’s contract person?
Now, the list of candidates has long been announced. Andrea also confirmed that Ilos is still alive, so the system’s mission is even more puzzling.
He did not understand why he had to deal with Ilos that waste. Although now the number of humans who can not contract companion beasts gradually increased, the face of a waste is still Ilos.
For the rest of them, even if they do not have companion beasts, they have their own achievements in certain areas.
As in the case of the highly regarded candidate Mona. He is only a little older than Ilos and has not been able to find a compatible companion beast. However, Mona is a well-known adventurer on the star network.
He has been exploring various primitive galaxies for years and live-streaming his adventures.
That thrilling experience and Mona’s appearance of trying to survive with his own wisdom despite his weakness has created a large wave of fans for him.
And it was pointed out that Mona’s physique reached the B level even without a companion beast.
As a human without a companion beast, Mona’s tough and hardworking image is simply glorious and towering compared to Ilos, who was born into a noble family but never achieved anything and was even nearly expelled because of his delay in graduating from the First Military Academy of the empire.
Now, both of their names appear on the list of candidates, and it is inevitable that they are compared. Of course, under this comparison, Ilos has again become synonymous with waste in people’s mouths.
Of course, another highly regarded candidate is Phil, who is involved with Andrea and had originally been subject to many attacks from Andrea’s fans because of this. But while Phil’s honor is directly linked to Andrea, the fans stopped attacking Phil and wished him well in getting His Majesty’s scale and becoming the contract person this time.
Tomorrow is the official start of the selection, and the live coverage has already started this evening.
Because this selection is highly controversial and because people were extremely curious about the scale of His Majesty, they also paid attention to the setting up of the selection venue.
On the live feed, General Andrea, who is responsible for the safety of the people at this selection, is personally placing His Majesty’s scale in a protective shield and dropping it into the forest.
In order to get first-hand information, the most prominent media have already taken reporters to the competition venue to interview this young but powerful general.
“May I ask the general what he thinks about the method of selecting the contract person this time?”
Facing the reporter’s question, Andrea straightened his uniform and gave an imperial military salute towards the camera. This handsome appearance immediately caused a scream from the fans in front of the screen.
“The method this time was decided by the council, and I have no objection to it. Moreover, the scale used this time is the largest one left by His Majesty. It retains the aura of His Majesty’s body, so I believe that the contract person selected this time must be His Majesty’s own will.”
Andrea showed his firm eyes towards the camera to increase the credibility of his words. He didn’t forget his arrangement, so he planted a seed in the audience’s mind in advance to pave the way for the following scene where the scale flies directly into Phil’s hands.
And then, the young general’s tone turned stern: “Even with the best protection measures and prior sweeping of this forest to remove beasts with high danger levels, the military still cannot fully guarantee the safety of every candidate. Because to participate in the selection of His Majesty’s contract person, one must put their own life on the line. Each candidate has signed an informed document, so I’m sure they have made their own considerations.”
Hearing Andrea’s words, the viewers watching the live stream could not help but be more excited, one for the extremely beautiful scales and the other for the danger in the selection.
The previous years of selection of His Majesty’s contract person were selected from the strongest people in the stars, and only after the most brutal competition would the contract person be determined. Even though they already had their own companion beasts, the council still promised to help them with the companion beast replacement technique if they could really awaken His Majesty.
Unfortunately, no one has ever succeeded.
At that time, although Andrea was also very popular, he was not able to participate in the last selection because he was away on a mission. Therefore, this year’s most anticipated candidate was Andrea. It was thought that the rising star of the empire would awaken His Majesty.
But no one expected that the council, like a brain fart this time, would turn the thrilling tournament every three years into a treasure hunt for a waste squad.
Initially, people didn’t expect much from this selection, but now, they are excited because of the meaning revealed in Andrea’s words.
This forest is the most dangerous place on the Capital Star. Although it is not as dangerous as the primitive planets outside, there are still fierce beasts of grade B and below that can appear.
And, maybe someone may even lose their life?
It was exciting. People discussed the selection and came up with their own ideas of who was most likely to win.
Mona is recognized as the most likely candidate to get the scale because he has had several wilderness expeditions, and his physique is the best of these candidates. He is also the oldest, so he has a lot of experience.
But this selection is also related to the scale left behind by His Majesty, which casts a bit of mystery on this competition. Will they choose the contract person for His Majesty, or will His Majesty’s scale personally find a suitable contract person for him?
[I think the most likely one is Phil! This is because he is still young, and he is highly regarded in the art academy. Didn’t that beautiful oil painting go to auction for tens of millions before? It can be said that among these candidates, he is the only one who is free from the title of waste.]
[To be honest, I was surprised that Phil would participate because he is only sixteen years old. It is normal not to find a companion beast at this age, and he can wait patiently for his own companion beast.]
[Phil have participated because of the general. The selection also abuses the hearts of single dogs. Unhappy……]
Phil was naturally a popular candidate to be discussed because of his relationship with Andrea.
But Mona also has a lot of fans who have spoken up for their idol.
[Don’t make it sound like everyone but Phil is a waste, okay? Mona’s efforts are well known. I think he is the most likely, because Mona is twenty-five years old, and he still does not have a companion beast. All the existing companion beasts are not compatible with him, so maybe the one who is compatible with his attributes is His Majesty?]
[Tsk, it’s possible because you are older? Then why don’t you say that Ilos is also possible?]
[Hahahaha, upstairs, are you here to be funny? Who watched the video of Ilos’ military academy test that was posted on the star network? He couldn’t even pass the logistics test, yet he still wants to explore the forest and face the real beasts?]
[Don’t say that, although our Ilos is not very strong, his luck is one of the best. Didn’t he escape from the interstellar storm recently? I hope Ilos will still be able to keep his good luck when facing the pursuit of the B-grade beast.]
[Yes, yes yes, although I’m not expecting Ilos to be the winner of the selection, I would still enjoy watching him run away in the forest, after all, the video of his final test last time was a year’s worth of laughs for me!]
During this time, because the death of Ilos in the interstellar storm was confirmed, and he suddenly appeared to also participate in the selection of this year’s contract person, people paid a lot of attention to Ilos.
Even the news released by several media outlets these days are all related to Ilos.
“Shocking! The first person to escape from an interstellar storm in history is actually him……”, “Someone not only has a good background, but also a great luck, simply a winner in life”, such topics that seem to praise, but in fact are derogatory and teasing are basically always on the main page of the star network, giving Ilos a full sense of existence.
Whenever this year’s contract person selection is mentioned, the legendary waste Ilos is brought up and then ridiculed for his weakness and whims.
The next is a burst of mockery of Ilos’ black history, because apart from the secret training designed to fight against hostile races, the First Military Academy of the empire’s tests were open to the public, and that Ilos has entered the military school for more than four years, but not once was he able to pass the test properly. The best rating for each practical test was only a C. This is what has solidified Ilos’ reputation as a waste year after year.
While people have mocked Ilos, they never thought why he, whose mental power level is much higher than the institutional level, didn’t choose the art academy and instead jumped headfirst into the military academy.
Now that the entire star network is all about the selection, Mrs. Gled was also furious while watching the live stream at home.
It’s not that people’s attention to Ilos pissed her off; after all, people mentioning him more than once would just make his reputation as a waste a bit louder.
Mrs. Gled was angry with the selection process this time. She couldn’t have imagined that the council would make people go into the forest to look for the scale.
Moreover, the candidate can’t teleport out immediately after getting the scale in his hands. He must personally escort the scale out of the forest. This means that even if Phil gets the scale, people can still snatch it from Phil.
Fearing that her precious son would be harmed, how could Mrs. Gled not be anxious?
When she saw Ilos coming down the stairs, she was immediately upset. Mrs. Gled is recently so angry at the sight of Ilos. She originally thought that in this group of candidates without a companion beast, as long as there is no Ilos, the notorious waste with no companion beast, with the identity of their family, the contract person’s position will fall on Phil’s head.
So she also paved the way for her son and directly got rid of Ilos.
Now, she not only did not really kill Ilos to get his inheritance and give Phil a little help, but she even has to worry every day about Ilos revealing her crimes?
The thought of the current Ilos’ eyes that seem to be able to see into people’s hearts, Mrs. Gled felt the chills rise all over her body.
“I hope this boy directly runs to a B-grade beast in the forest and die!” Mrs. Gled thought to herself.
Phil, who encouraged his mother to kill his half-brother, learned of the miraculous return of Ilos and did not dare to return to the Gled house for fear of him seeing his injuries.
Now that Phil is on the flight to the selection site, he brushed through the news on the star network a little, fearing that someone will mention the fact that he once owned a companion beast.
Seeing all the sarcastic remarks about Ilos on the star network, Phil was relieved.
Phil’s companion beast is a cat. Because he has never felt good about this weak cat, he has been pestering his father to buy himself a powerful companion beast. Therefore, although he has contracted this cat for more than a year, he still has not registered the information of this companion beast.
Now it seems that it was thanks to this that he could participate in the selection of this contract person.
Phil had indeed deluded himself into the thought that he could actually contract the Star beast and become the master of this empire. Still, out of the family’s faith in His Majesty, such thoughts would only quietly creep into Phil’s mind.
He watched as people on the star network gradually lost the fun of mocking Ilos and started discussing the rest of the candidates again.
Phil pursed his lips and dialed a number: “Send out the previous scandal of Ilos at the military academy again, and make sure Ilos attracts the attention of the audience.”
After getting an affirmative answer from the other side, Phil turned off the communicator, closed his eyes, and leaned back in his chair.
He must not let anyone notice the abnormality on him and let Ilos use his waste attribute again to help him draw people’s attention.
Inside an office building, a lead editor hung up his communicator. After seeing the increased amount on his account, he then began to pull out his collection of resources and compose an article that was both inciting and provocative.
Just as his article was about to pass the review and release, a surprising message came from the editor-in-chief1.
“Are you sick! Now that people are focusing on the upcoming selection, why are you taking up space again by bringing out news that was put out eight hundred years ago?”2
The lead editor was scolded, and he replied back with uncertainty, “People are paying a lot of attention to each candidate these days, and Ilos is even more talked about, so I don’t think it’s a problem to post this……”
At the other end of the communicator, the editor-in-chief, with cold sweat on his head, was staring blankly at the message on his other communicator.
That message was extremely concise, and it was immediately apparent that the master did not want to talk nonsense: “Send.”
Seeing this word, the editor-in-chief scratched his head speechlessly. Although this editor-in-chief no longer has his red hair and beard, if one had been on the Red Rose, they could tell at a glance by his usual small gestures that this man was the leader of the Horst Star Pirates.
