While driving toward the destination, Yoo Ah-in explained the current situation briefly.

“Do you know about Miss’s family background?”

“Somewhat.”

I vaguely remember two older brothers above have one older sister.

“The issue this time is with the older sister.”

It seemed that something had happened between Seo Ji-an’s older sister.

“As you may know, the chairman is trying to select the most competent successor among them through a succession competition.”

” . . . . . . .”

“And it’s called a competition, but it’s more like completely incapacitating the opponent. Whether it’s socially burying them and putting them in prison, or secretly turning them into a corpse, it doesn’t matter.”

In short, the succession competition of Dae-jin Industries was essentially a life-threatening battle.

“Just before the start of the vacation, the older sister started picking a full-scale fight with Miss.”

“Were you pushed back?”

“I guess you could say it’s half and half. We won the competition as a successor.”

Then why did you call me and ask for help? I could find out the reason from Yoo Ah-in’s next explanation.

“The older sister, who was completely cornered, is preparing a last resort. She decided to attack Miss’s weakness.”

“What is that weakness?”

Yoo Ah-in pondered for a moment, then looked into my eyes and continued, as if he had made up his mind.

” . . . Miss’s younger sister.”

It was the first time I had heard of this.

After that, I arrived at an unidentified facility and followed Yoo Ah-in straight inside.

Thud.

Thud.

And in the center, there was Seo Ji-an with a worried face and someone asleep in a separate ward, surrounded by equipment.

Whew.

Seo Ji-an, who found me, sighed and glared at Yoo Ah-in.

“Don’t you listen to me? I told you not to call him.”

” . . . I can’t listen to that. He’s the only hope right now.”

The detailed explanation was as follows.

Seo Ji-an’s younger sister, Seo Ji-ha, had been bedridden for years, suffering from an unknown illness and receiving treatment.

However, no treatment worked, and in the end, it seemed that all they could do was maintain the status quo by pouring in millions of dollars.

“Recently, there are more and more days when she doesn’t open her eyes at all.”

And the opponent is trying to attack this place and take Seo Ji-ha hostage.

“Is there any way to move her to another place?”

“No.”

Seo Ji-an, who had been silent the whole time, looked at me and opened her mouth.

“It took a lot of manpower and resources just to set up the dedicated facilities. There is no other place that can handle her at this level of technology.”

Decisively.

” . . . The underground won’t be able to handle it.”

Indeed, even to me, who has little knowledge in that area, Seo Ji-ha’s condition didn’t look good. She needs absolute stability.

“What’s the opponent’s strength?”

“They’re pouring in all the money they have. It’s going to be a tough fight.”

On the other hand, we can’t afford to do that. This is because a large amount of Seo Ji-ha’s fortune was spent on her treatment.

「𝙒𝙚’𝙧𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙩𝙚𝙡𝙮 𝙨𝙩𝙪𝙘𝙠.」

However, the fact that I was called means that there is still something in mind.

I had already figured it out to some extent.

“Nature-type spells are the key to treatment?”

That would explain why Seo Ji-an had been researching nature-type spells so much. She nodded slightly at my question.

” . . . That’s right. I haven’t found a way yet, but I thought that you, who has a high level of knowledge in that area, might know some related information.”

I heard that if we can just survive this fight, we can completely eliminate the opponent from the succession competition.

In other words, the victory or defeat of this fight was in my hands.

“I’ll check. But I don’t think I’ll get any results that you can expect.”

” . . . Please.”

Incidentally, I have a more accurate diagnostic ability than any doctor.

I entered the isolation room where Seo Ji-ha was, with the cooperation of the medical staff.

And I immediately started checking her information.

「𝙏𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙨. . . . . . .」

Honestly, I was shocked.

I never imagined I’d see this trait in the first part of Exorcism.

「𝙉𝙤, 𝙬𝙖𝙞𝙩 𝙖 𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙪𝙩𝙚. 𝙏𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙𝙣’𝙩 𝙗𝙚.」

There was definitely a memorable story.

In the second part of Exorcism, a being that possessed a human body and reigned as a calamity.

Gang Cheol-i, a powerful enemy of the main characters in the second part, who brought death to countless players.

「𝙅𝙪𝙨𝙩 𝙞𝙣 𝙘𝙖𝙨𝙚. . . . . . .」

The being that would become its host might be Seo Ji-ha, who was right before my eyes.

「𝙄𝙩’𝙨 𝙥𝙤𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙗𝙡𝙚. 𝙉𝙤, 𝙞𝙩’𝙨 𝙦𝙪𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚𝙡𝙮.」

Come to think of it, there was a backstory that the human body possessed by Gang Cheol-i was originally a test subject that was being managed in a research facility, but one day it awakened and awakened the sleeping Imoogi inside.

「𝘾𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙞𝙩 𝙗𝙚 𝙎𝙚𝙤 𝙅𝙞-𝙝𝙖?」

It might just be a far-fetched guess, but if Seo Ji-an had really lost the succession race in the original story and Seo Ji-ha had been taken away from her, it wouldn’t be that much of a stretch.

Only then did I realize why Seo Ji-an, 

who clearly had considerable talent and specs, was treated as an extra and lived in seclusion in the original story.

It was because Seo Ji-an lost the succession race of Dae-jin Industries and died or ended up in a similar situation.

I felt cold sweat running down my back as I carefully observed Seo Ji-ha’s condition.

「𝙏𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙣𝙤 𝙨𝙞𝙜𝙣𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙄𝙢𝙤𝙤𝙜𝙞 𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙜.」
