Chapter 318: Insignificance
Looking at the steaming cup of tea in front of him, Mike hesitated for a moment and finally reached out his hand to drink the hot tea. Previously, because of his fear for his life, Mike was often timid.
However, everything was different now, Mike had returned to the game world. Even if the tea was really poisonous, he would at most lose some experience points. There was no need to be so afraid anymore.
After feeling the warmth of the tea, Mike gently raised the cup to drink it. The next moment, the warm tea slowly made its way into his body with warmth. Mike felt more at ease after a few sips.
It was as if he was resting in a hot spring, instantly washing away his fatigue.
He even felt that his mind had become extremely clear from it.
Mike secretly checked his status bar.
There was an additional buff in his status bar.
[Clear and bright intelligence for mental strength + 20%, lasts for 24 hours.]
Seeing this buff, Mike looked at Lady Nikorei with slight surprise.
Lady Nikorei smiled and said, “You don’t have to be so vigilant. I have no intention of harming you.”
Mike was silent for a moment before he spoke. “…Even though I’ve done so many things that were harmful to the elves?”
Since that Mike had returned to the past, this world was related to what had happened before.
In other words, in this world, the death of the Elf Princess Veronica Sabrina would be related to him. Including the death of the two elven queens and the two wars between the humans and the elves — these were all inextricably linked to him.
For a powerful psychic like Lady Nikorei, she would have known of all this just like the back of her hand.
However, under such circumstances, she was still willing to be so friendly to him.
This made Mike feel very puzzled.
However, Lady Nikorei still maintained her smile and composure as she spoke.
“There are many things in this world that we can not control.
“To the world, we may be small, so small that we are like a speck of dust.
“Many people always feel that they can change the world.
“But they don’t know that from a macro perspective, the impact they provide is negligible.
“Some things, even without the influence of those people, are destined to move in that direction.
“Everything is destined by fate.”
Mike listened to Lady Nikorei’s words in silence and did not interrupt her.
Nikorei poured more tea into mike’s cup, then she looked at Stone and Egg before continuing.
“Little friends, come and have a taste.”
Stone and Egg both had very innocent and pure personalities. Without any hesitation, they sat beside the table and picked up the teacup to drink. After tasting the delicious tea, the two little friends jumped off the table happily and began to dance.
Nikorei looked at them and revealed a gratified smile, “If all the creatures in the world could be as pure as them, so many things wouldn’t have happened.”
Mike still stayed silent. He agreed with Lady Nikorei’s point of view very much. Unfortunately, he himself was also one of the many laymen in the world.
He wanted to be strong, rich, powerful, respected by others…
He wanted to live!
In this world, he could not avoid the chaos. He even took the initiative to fall into the chaos and be the one to cause it.
Seeing that Mike was silent, Lady Nikorei smiled again.
“In fact, you don’t have to take some things too seriously.
“I know that your existence and actions had a great impact on the elf race.
“However, I know better than you.
“The elf race… has long been corrupted.
“A sister wants to kill her sibling, and a daughter wants to kill her mother.
“On the surface, some actions and words are for justice or revenge, but in reality, they are only for benefits and status.
“Such a royal family that possesses these traits will collapse sooner or later. You just sped up the process.”
Mike remained silent. Although he was not completely aware of what Lady Nikorei said, he at least knew that one of the royal sisters wanted to kill her sibling.
After all, he was involved in this.
He hesitated for a moment and said, “So, are you still willing to help me?”
“Of course I’m willing.”
Nikorei smiled and pointed at Egg.
“I’m very clear that you actually have many flaws. All the creatures in the world have flaws.
“But, at the very least, you’re not a complete villain.
“I know that you need dragon scales, but you didn’t do anything to this little guy, did you?
“Maybe you’re thinking that this little guy is good for you, but in fact, if you didn’t do it, it means that you didn’t do it. You can’t be too harsh on people, including yourself.”
Looking at Egg’s puzzled expression, Mike did not answer.
Lady Nikorei knew that Mike did not kill Egg to get dragon scales.
May it be true that Mike felt that Egg was helpful to him. If a baby dragon was raised by him, it would be a very powerful being to have. 𝗶𝚗𝘯𝘳ℯ𝒂𝑑． cｏ𝙢
Even if part of it was because Egg looked too cute and Mike fell for the baby dragon’s charms. However, that was only a small part of it!
Even Mike himself thought that he was just doing it for profit. However, Nikorei did not make any malicious speculations about Mike.
Nikorei smiled and said, “Don’t worry. You don’t need to worry about this matter.” She continued on sensing Mike’s confusion. “When this little guy grows up again, he will naturally shed a dragon scale, and your problem will be immediately solved. As for the other materials, I’ve prepared them for you all these years.”
After saying that, Lady Nikorei got up from the chair, turned around, and returned to the bedside. She pulled out a box from under the bed and started rummaging through it.
Looking at Lady Nikorei’s back, Mike was slightly stunned, and a hint of surprise appeared in his eyes.
“You… Why are you being so kind to me?”
Lady Nikorei’s movements froze, and then she said calmly, “I’m not a good person. Many times, I can’t stop the things that happen in this world. No matter what I want to do for any race, I can’t change it. I only have one simple request.” She paused before she spoke her mind again. “When you wield your sword against the elven royal family or soldiers, I shall not say a single word. I only hope that you spare the civilians who pose no threat to you.”
After Lady Nikorei finished saying these words, she turned around and placed the materials on the table. Her tone was very calm, so calm that it did not seem like she was discussing a major matter. It only seemed like she was talking about some trivial matters in life.
Mike looked at Lady Nikorei and nodded slightly, “Sure, I can promise you this. As long as those people don’t have any ill intentions toward me and don’t threaten me, I won’t hurt them.”
After saying that, Mike took the materials on the table. He lowered his head and looked at his dancing friends.
If he wanted to take out the bud on his chest, all he needed was the dragon scale.
Previously, Egg had swallowed the entire royal family’s supply. Now, it just needed one last chance to break through!
“Lady Nikorei, I would like to require some assistance from you.”
