“Yes? What do you mean by that?”
I widened my eyes.
What Ian said made perfect sense, but I wasn’t able to grasp what he meant by it.
“What exactly do you mean when you say electric shock?”
“Doesn’t it say that over there?”
Ian looked at the banner with a frown. Looking back, it was a reaction that seemed incomprehensible.
‘What are you talking about? Oh, maybe. Isn’t it objectionable because it’s magic that plays with people’s minds?’
“Ah, you don’t take it seriously, right? Everyone who has fallen in love is like that. Insofar as you are able to win the other person’s love, you want to use any means.”
There was no way that magic potion could create real love anyway. At most, it would be magic to intensify the first spark of love even further than it already was.
Everyone here should have known that. But isn’t that what love is all about? If your love is taken as collateral, you will be seduced even though you are aware that you are engaged in business.
“I don’t understand at all.”
Ian’s expression was still hardened. He asked me, narrowing his brows.
“Why would you want to harm the heart health of someone you like?”
At this point, I felt like I had a million question marks floating around in my head.
Heart health? What the devil are you trying to talk about?
It was the first time Ian’s words didn’t make sense to me this far. In the midst of my confusion, something crept into my head.
‘No way, this person.’
Did you literally take the catchphrase about electric shock?
No way. Anyway, please.
I shook my head. No matter how much Ian was a chaste man of the era who kept his virginity until he got older, he wouldn’t be so ignorant about love.
“That……Sir Ian, do you know? Words like “tremble” and “electrical shock” are frequently used to express the state of mind of liking someone.”
“What exactly does that even mean?”
Ian’s eyebrows furrowed in confusion, as though he had never heard it before.
Oh my god. I tapped my forehead.
How on earth could a person have reached this point if he had lived a dry life? Untimely compassion overflowed.
“When you like someone, your heart beats fast. It’s the same as getting an electric shock!
Having said that, I clung to him and whispered so that only Ian could hear.
“You really don’t know? Even if you haven’t experienced it, you’ve probably heard it by hearsay!”
You really don’t know? Really? Such a common metaphor?
As I approached, Ian fluttered back. I was dumbfounded and whispered in a small voice.
“What are you doing? What kind of husband backs out when his wife approaches him? Come closer!”
Ian looked down at me with hard eyes. Reluctantly, his hand lightly wrapped around my shoulder. It was a pose I had practised beforehand. Because these days, all lovers do this and walk on the street.
But Ian’s fingers were strangely stiff where they were on my shoulder. When I looked up at Ian, his face was the weirdest thing I’d ever seen.
“……No. No way.”
Ian muttered something. The voice was so quiet that I couldn’t hear it, even though it was right next to me. What do you want to say?
Soon, he even burst out laughing.
“I must have gone crazy because I couldn’t sleep.”
“Why? You said you couldn’t sleep? How long?”
For some reason, he doesn’t want to come into the bedroom too much these days. I thought he was going to sleep somewhere else, though. Could it be that he really wasn’t sleeping at all?
A simple answer to my question.
“What?! Two days? You’ll get sick. You’re losing your mind!”
You haven’t slept for two days. If that happened, Ian would fall on his own, even if Nine didn’t do anything.
“I’m actually worried.”
Ian said it with a terrifyingly hard face. I also became serious with that face.
‘Dragon’s claws, all those health foods were supposed to be eaten by this person, not me?’
To the point of such concern, Ian’s condition, which is now enthralling, seemed somewhat serious.
It was then.
Deng, Deng, Deng, Deng, Deng.
There was a precise five-time ringing of the bell in the clock tower.
“Is it really already this late?”
Tension crept up on my skin.
The clock tower told us that the current time is 5 pm
It was now time for the ‘event’ that was going to take place.
Scared to think so, My ears were filled with a deafening roar.
“You’ve waited a very long time!”
The streets were filled with an amplified voice that had been produced artificially.
Crowded people looked around in amazement.
“What, what is it? What?”
“Oh, it’s five o’clock. Auction start time!”
“Auction? What auction?”
“No, didn’t you know? It’s the flower of today’s festival.”
I could hear the muffled voices of the people around me.
As I was saying earlier, the most exciting part of the festival that took place today was the huge auction.
Why, all of a sudden, is the highlighted part of the love festival for couples an auction……
‘The most appropriate means to express love is money, no matter what. What did you say?’
It was because of the Master of Magic Tower’s philosophy.
“The auctions are about to begin on the square very soon. This year, as in other years, we have prepared a range of fantastic items for you, so we hope you enjoy them!”
Rizello was the one whose voice sounded as though it had been boosted by a speaker.
His speech reminded me that he seemed quite excited. He is a fool who will not spare money to look good for his lover… No, thinking about the guests would be very exciting.
‘Anyway, a money ghost.’
Even sticking out my tongue, I urged Ian.
“Let’s hurry up and go!”
“To the auction?”
“Yes. Didn’t you hear? They’ve prepared a variety of fantastic items. I’m so curious about what’s going to happen!”
I pretended as if it were the only justification and put on a very upbeat look.
While I was pulling Ian’s sleeve, I made sure not to forget to murmur something in his ear.
“This is your chance to imprint your love for me in front of people once again. How impressed would everyone be if we won a bid for just one expensive jewel for me? Wouldn’t this have the same effect as walking around a department store to make your feet tingle?”
Ian couldn’t seem to find anything to refute the tight logic. Fortunately, I was able to take Ian to the plaza with ease.
“Huh, huh. That is Sir Ian.”
“There is also a saintess.”
Here, too, those who found us cleared the way, like the miracle of Moses.
Feeling a bit embarrassed, I proceeded towards the centre of the plaza without hesitation.
“Huh. What is that?”
“The teddy bear speaks…!”
People were freaked out for a reason.
It was because a teddy bear half as tall as an adult man was waving from atop a platform in the middle of the square.
“Then let me reveal the first thing. The main character is the heart diamond stone! It is an authentic diamond that has not been processed at all! It has been shaped like a perfect heart since it was mined!”
Despite the name of the auction held in the Magic Tower, the auction items had nothing to do with magic at all. It was clear that they were just bringing and selling anything that looked expensive. The concept of a festival for lovers was virtually sacrificed for this auction.
Still, do you think it’s because of how hot the event was? Things went like hotcakes. There were so many people, and there were also many things that were romantic enough to stimulate the sensibilities of lovers at the auction.
Amidst the enthusiastic response, numerous items were put up on the podium and sold.
I carefully timed it.
There wasn’t anything in particular I wanted. But it had to be something that looked moderately valuable.
A lot of pretty, mysterious, and useful-looking things came up.
However, the final winning bid did not exceed 10,000 gold. The guests were so good at making concessions to each other that I wondered if they were a group. Even the voice of the teddy bear who was hosting the event was gloomy.
‘Umm, isn’t there anything that’s good enough to catch fire?’
Well, they said that the real value comes in the end. Let’s wait a little longer.
It was at that moment that I thought that thing’ came out.
“The next item is a treasure that is so beautiful that just looking at it will make your eyes shine! Introducing the jewels handcrafted by the Master of the Magic Tower!”
The story that the master of the magic tower handcrafted made the audience agitated.
The teddy bear withdrew from the tent in a dramatic way.
What appeared inside was a round jewel the size of a fist.
“Oh, my goodness….”
The crowd murmured once again.
The jewel wasn’t fully round. Instead, it had a lot of different angles and faces that each gave off a slightly different light.
If you put a rainbow together, what would it look like? The harmonious glow of the five-coloured lights seemed ecstatic even to me, who was unfamiliar with jewellery.
As if I wasn’t the only one who thought so, sighs of admiration burst out from everywhere
‘No, hold on. But that……’
The extraordinary light of the jewel caught my eye somewhere.
After shaking my head for a moment, I opened my eyes wide.
That unusual five-coloured light. That……
‘It’s a Holy Magic Stone!’
I couldn’t believe what I saw when I looked at the Holy Magic Stone on the stage.
It looked very different from when I found it in the cave, but when I saw the original, I could tell that it was a refined Holy Magic Stone.
Is it okay for that dangerous thing to be sold like this?
