Regressor Takes Everything - Chapter 76
A large mansion in Sicily.
The skinny old man who seemed like he even had difficulties being seated, looked with a pale expression.
“So…. You’re telling me that you couldn’t get hold of her?”
“………. I’m sorry.”
The ashtray that the old man threw hit one of the member’s faces and shattered into pieces. He wasn’t hurt as he was a hunter, but his face was a mess with cigarette ash all over.
But the member did not show a slight movement and maintained his position while the old man trembled and shouted.
“If I knew things would go like this, I wouldn’t have even joined with you bastards! Did you not say you will bring Lucia to me!”
“That’s because the opponent used a hidden ability powerful enough to be assumed as an indigenous skill………”
“I don’t want to hear any of those excuses! If you wish to receive my support then bring Lucia to me immediately! I asked you to find her!”
The member’s eyes slightly twisted at his yell that’s close to getting a seizure and immediately answered with a straight face.
“We’ll try to find her as soon as possible.”
The members left the room and the old man left alone, clutched the armrest while chewing on his lips.
“No……… It’s dangerous this way……”
The skinny old man, one of the key members of Cosa Nostra, Giuseppe Mattarella murmured in a cold voice filled with fear.
He who originally supported Lucia stepped back to neutral after getting to know about the group sponsoring Salvatore Pero
He had no hopes in Lucia anymore because he thought that the little life he has left will be ended immediately.
Though he declared neutrality like that, he had one more thing he feared.
“If it is like this….. that guy will be here……..”
A monster who is indebted and loyal to the Di Seta predecessors.
S-class hunter Fiore was an envoy who’s able to take his life any moment, therefore he demanded Lucia’s recruitment as a condition.
It’s because he thought if by any chance Fiore was to draw his sword against the organization, would he be able to remain alive for protecting Lucia.
But at this rate, it’s nothing except for fact that he betrayed the Di Seta predecessors and helped Lucia’s disappearance.
“I have to find her…. No matter what… I have to……”
No matter how amazing they are for having Salvatore’s back, there’s no guarantee that they can perfectly block an S-class hunter’s sword.
They have to find Lucia at any cost. While Giuseppe muttered like crazy, the space behind him was tightened.
Giuseppe’s eyes widened at the cool touch he felt on his neck and the soft voice of a young man rang in his ears.
“I just came to talk for a moment. I don’t want to create a scene…….. You know what I mean, right?”
Giuseppe broke out in a cold sweat at the voice coming from the back. I wonder how many protective spells were cast on his mansion.
Though he’s an S-class hunter, easily breaking into a place where it’s almost impossible to sneak in?
Giuseppe who realized that he was no match to him, stiffly bowed at him instead of answering.
“This is why people with a lot of experience are more convenient. There’s no need for an explanation. Let’s keep our conversation just as quiet as this. Get it?”
The young man, Kang Yoo-sik who got a reply from a nervous Giuseppe, gave a satisfied smile and questioned him with his hands on Giuseppe’s shoulders.
“Why did you betray Lucia Di Seta?”
“I, I just expressed neutrality. I never thought of betr-…….”
Kang Yoo-sik who looked down at Giuseppe thought for a moment and pointed at his right hand.
“W-, What about that…..”
Even before he finished the sentence, Giuseppe’s right hand dropped to the floor and his eyes widened at the sight of it.
And at the moment he cried out when the pain hit afterward.
Kang Yoo-sik’s whispering blocked the scream.
“Just be honest without wasting any time. If you keep dragging it, you’re gonna bleed to death, get it?”
Kang Yoo-sik gave a satisfied look at Giuseppe who nodded like crazy and continued questioning.
“So, why did you betray?”
“T-, Those guys, are receiving the support of Pandemonium.”
Kang Yoo-sik’s eyes slightly widened at Giuseppe’s answer.
Pandemonium. It was one of the top three of the seven reigning territories in the back world and it was the group that actively manages main.
‘I wondered who was the first to reign Italy, looks like it was Pandemonium.’
Kang Yoo-sik was lost in thoughts after just realizing why Italy was packed with a hell of mines before his regression.
If they’re sponsored by the Pandemonium, it has to be assumed that the troops they provided have already entered by now.
‘They’ve got big names than I imagined huh.’
When you think of it, it’s quite weird that the size is small, since they were trying to devour the organization that takes over all of Italy.
While Kang Yoo-sik was lost in thoughts like that for a moment, Giuseppe who examined the situation, hurriedly tapped on one part of the armrest.
At his action, mana spreads around him starting from the chair. Giuseppe who knew the protective magic that follows threw himself forward.
Giuseppe looked around being flustered at how the magic that had to protect him was nowhere to be seen and then discovered the magic.
The protective magic that wasn’t around him, but surrounding his enemy. Giuseppe gave a blank expression at the sight of the magical force that was completed using tens of billions of dollars getting robbed just like that.
“You broke your promise.”
Kang Yoo-sik grinned and flicked a capsule he pulled out from his pocket.
Giuseppe’s eyes went down at the eerie sound coming from his chest to then see a red mask.
A mask operated semi-permanently using the enemy’s blood.
Giuseppe staggered and collapsed to the back after recalling it as the magic that Lucia used as the main force.
It was a futile death for one of the key members of Cosa Nostra, but Kang Yoo-sik looked with a calm expression.
‘He was almost a scarecrow at first.’
Now it’s safe to say that Cosa Nostra’s power is the fact that Salvatore has everything in his possession.
Giuseppe who just died and the other executives are maybe just ordinary people running a business now.
‘Still, the protective magic would’ve been bothersome if it wasn’t for Lucia.
It could still be seen as a great result since the invasion that seemed like it’d take a quarter of a day was reduced to just minutes.
Upon completion of the mission, Kang Yoo-sik left through an escape route he found already and returned to Lucia’s hideout.
“……. Was there an issue?”
Lucia who rose from her seat asked with a serious face to which Kang Yoo-sik gave an odd expression.
“Nope. I’m back after finishing it all, why?”
“What do you mean how. I just went through the route you told me before. It ended in a minute though.”
Lucia stared blankly at Kang Yoo-sik who answered like it was nothing. No matter how much you say it was the blind spot of the protective magic, it still looked like it could take a few days.
And finishing it off not even in few hours but in just a few minutes?
‘I did hear that your magic skills are tremendous…. But no way I knew it’d be to this extent…….”
Though she said 50% before, it’s probably even 80% possible with just Kang Yoo-sik himself.
Lucia who belatedly modified the assessment about Kang Yoo-sik came back to her senses and continued.
“So, were you able to find who is behind Salvatore?”
“Yes. He said it was Pandemonium.”
Lucia’s expression darkened at Kang Yoo-sik’s reply.
“Why Pandemonium out of all……”
Though she was somewhat prepared about who is behind, it’s a different case if it’s Pandemonium who even deals with the catastrophic mine.
While Lucia was frowning at the big names that were beyond her expectation, Kang Yoo-sik looked at the parchment on the table.
“Hmm. Is this the ‘Omerta’?”
“Ah, yes. It was Giuseppe’s son today. If the purge succeeds, he’ll be on our side.”
Kang Yoo-sik looked at the Omerta at Lucia’s reply.
‘Omerta’, a pledge that was only used in Cosa Nostra. It was a pretty good one among all the pledges that were produced, in particular, it was famous for its strong involvement in secrecy.
But before his regression, it was an item quite rare to find as the suppliers Cosa Nostra suddenly stopped producing them.
“It was quite useful…….”
When Kang Yoo-sik was fiddling with Omerta wondering if there was anything left, Andvari’s voice rang in his ears.
– Heh. Isn’t that what that bastard asked to me make.
‘……… What did you say?’
– Ah, no! Nothing……
At Andvari’s voice that was suddenly flustered, Kang Yoo-sik ordered Perceval right away.
‘Take it and find out.’
– Sure. Lord.
– H-, Hold on. Arrrgh!
Kang Yoo-sik who heard Andvari’s death throes smiled slightly and looked at Omerta.
‘This one……. We can get a hell of a lot from this if we do well.’
While Kang Yoo-sik was grinning about the unexpected benefit, Lucia let out a breath after being lost in thoughts for a long time.
“Looks like situation has gotten a bit…… No, a lot more difficult.”
If Salvatore was smart, of course, it was highly likely that he was supported by postulating a battle against Fiore.
Usually, even if we say he received support, it’s not easy to stand against an S-class hunter but the problem is that the support group is Pandemonium.
‘By any chance, if they had prepared for it thoroughly, they might even include the catastrophic mine.’
No matter how Fiore was an outstanding S-class hunter, he was not at a level to be able to handle it alone.
But if he gets the help of external forces, of course, in the end, they can’t help but hand over Cosa Nostra to them.
‘I was wondering if I could see a way…….’
Having to move on from the organization taken over by generations just for one reason that they are lacking strength?
Lucia felt helpless for the first time in life when the possibility in front of them had just fallen apart.
‘This…….. is an opportunity.’
And Kang Yoo-sik who watched the scene initiated a collection without hesitation.
[Debtor Lucia Di Seta going into enforcement. State abnormal ‘Dependency Increased’.]
[Debtor Lucia Di Seta going into enforcement. State abnormal ‘Dependency Increased’.]
Lucia’s eyes shook while in an abnormal state and Kang Yoo-sik questioned with a shaky voice.
“Now…….. what do we do? As for me, it’s not……”
A scene where the mind she’d been keeping stable despite the worst situations, now falling apart. Kang Yoo-sik spoke with confidence at that.
“It’s not that we don’t have a method.”
“Yes. There’s a way to fight against the support of Pandemonium. But……”
Kang Yoo-sik who was speechless answered Lucia in a relaxed voice.
“It requires a commensurate price.”
“What do you mean price?”
“We won’t know it right away. But it’s not that easy to get deep. Perhaps it could even keep Miss. Lucia forever.”
It wasn’t detailed but was to a point where the weight of it could be understood. Kang Yoo-sik calmly imprinted how tremendous is the help they’ll be receiving.
“But still, you can keep Cosa Nostra intact. You’ll be able to continuously remain in Italy following your predecessors.”
Kang Yoo-sik never felt a sense of belonging before his regression.
Maybe because the first guild he belonged to was nothing but trash as the ones higher looked like they were using him and the ones lower looked like they will backstab him.
Therefore, Kang Yoo-sik used only those held with a leash as creditors, and of course, it leads to having no sense of belonging and bond there.
“Really…… Will I be able to keep Cosa Nostra intact?”
Like that, Lucia who was ready to pay a price to protect the organization couldn’t be understood, but Kang Yoo-sik didn’t show it out.
‘Since it’s a good thing for me’
There was no need to understand. What a perfect use of debt.
Kang Yoo-sik nodded while reflecting on that.
“If you’re prepared for it. It’s possible.”
At Kang Yoo-sik’s words, Lucia thought about it until the very end and replied while tightening her fist.
“I’ll do it. No matter what price is it…… I’ll pay for it.”
Lucia puts everything away to protect the organization. Kang Yoo-sik smiled from the inside at that.
“Alright. Then I’ll be preparing for it in my way, so, all you have to do is prepare to open a chapter of the conference.”
Chapter of the conference. Though it’s just a get-together, it will be an aspect that’s nothing less than that of an all-out war.
Lucia nodded with a stiff expression as she knew of that as well.
“Then I’ll get going for a moment……”
Kang Yoo-sik who left the hideout pulled out his phone and was lost in thoughts for a moment.
‘I just have to talk it out to Fiore, and as for those guys…..’
What would be more effective? Kang Yoo-sik who gave it a thought for a while took his phone and sent two texts.
[I found a nice restaurant in Sicily, how about dinner together? I’ll bear the flight and hotel costs.]
[I’m in Sicily. I wrote all the thesis of the magic but I have no way of coming back.]
It hadn’t even been 10 seconds since he sent the text and he got replies already.
[Where do I have to go?]

“………. That was fast?”
A speed that made him wonder if he had been staring at his phone for too long.
Kang Yoo-sik who slightly got the chills chuckled wondering if they’d just agree like that. After sending the texts, he got on his feet to meet the remaining one person he had to convince
