Seeing the beautiful golem’s stats, Factoria grew excited.
“Z grade skill?! There’s even two?!”
As if she was not familiar with the surrounding district she went, but by noticing the seemingly important information, such as stats, that can be acknowledged everywhere, she seemed to realize what it was faintly.
How am I sure of this?
Factoria’s expression was serious.
Her face showed that she needs time to write a will.
“Mr.Kang Han Soo! Do I look like I can calm down?! It’s a transcendent, a transcendent! Ah! You may not know what the Z rank is. Listen, it’s the next step after SSS rank. It’s only an area of myth. Only one of the champions of the earth has achieved the ultimate ground! Even if 100 strong people like me can’t win against it.”
“A million of you.”
A million Factoria’s are not enough.
“Harsh! No, now is not the time for such a thing…. Um, Mr.Kang Han Soo? What are you doing now?”
“I’m conversing with that golem.”
“Anyway, I mean. Sigh! Whatever! Do what you need to do. Now that I think about it, I was the stupid one. We’re in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, there’s nowhere to run away, anyway.”
With her shoulders drooping, Factoria gave into despair.
I ignored her and looked at the golem.
Looking at it again, there was no difference.
The old prince that I thought I perfectly eliminated.
But he took refuge in the golem, which was used by a lady in his harem.
Whether it was the prince’s life insurance from a long time ago, or the momentary wit of a mermaid.
The important thing is that the old prince is still alive.
He was only a soul that had lost his body, but he brought two of his most important transcendent skills.
If the old prince had been in the flesh of a person, not a golem, I would not have even searched for him.
As soon as I saw him, I would have gotten rid of him.
However, he was a golem.
“This golem is made for houseware♪”
Golems are tools.
Soul-like things didn’t even matter.
Even a special golem can be bartered and also be claimed with permanent ownership, like a sword.
The only thing is that only one is allowed per person.
“Ms.Mermaid. I like this housekeeping Android, won’t you exchange it with my latest golem? It’s a Sage-made golem! Inside this there is an ancient heroic soul!”
“Wait a minute!”
“What is it again now?”
I asked the mermaid lady, but the wrong girl showed interest first.
“Did the Sage of the Tower of the Sage make the golem?”
Factoria asked for another confirmation.
Only after gathering much patience, was I able to answer calmly.
“It… it’s amazing. The Sage hated the golems and viewed them as a pathetic trick of mage.”
Like Factoria said, that Sage loathed golems.
However, the harmony of yin and yang are like that of cosmic providence, meaning that it’s above mundane human philosophy.
I summoned golem D.
“Master! You’re too much! How could you pass me on to an unidentified evil alien…!”
As soon as Golem D was summoned, it complained.
However, I had nothing to regret. This golem is only a product with set blueprints. If only the materials and manpower are sufficient, mass production is possible.
The heroic spirit inside was a bit of a shame to lose, but it wasn’t comparable to an old prince with two transcendental skills.
I ignored Golem D’s protest and looked back at Factoria.
I didn’t even have to ask for an answer.
“Wow! This is the golem that the Sage developed! It has amazing stats! Gasp! This material that makes up the hair, could it really be…? It’s really amazing!
To make it look aesthetically pleasing, to pour in so much mythical gold so generously… I’m already looking forward to seeing how awesome the interior is.”
“It’s not really better than that home-welfare Valkyrie?”
If the two fight, the conclusion will come out in 1 second.
“Maybe, but we marvel at the incandescent light bulbs invented by Edison, while we disregard the sun’s light. The same can be said about this.
I have tried to study the Valkyrie, which had been frozen and captured just before it could self-destruct, but I couldn’t interpret the structure at all. However, this golem combines magic and science, It’s the real deal! It’s a revolution in human science!”
Factoria’s praises continued without stopping.
She couldn’t stand it anymore, and she approached Golem D, and she began to touch and graze all over the place.
Then she asks.
“Heroic Golem, Do you feel my touch?”
“Ahhh. Yes, so don’t touch me all over. Kyah?!”
…Isn’t that sexual harassment, even among women?
It might be ok because it’s a robot.
“Mermaid. Let’s trade it with my golem.”
What was the saying again, you’re spitting on my smiling face? The mermaid lady who saw my friendly face quickly agreed.
“Wait a minute!”
The old golem, listening from the corner, intervened as if it were disturbing.
“Owners are talking right now. Golems should go out over there.”
“Ensure her safety. Then I will follow it without struggle. No, you can’t really be needing a home-welfare golem, right? No, if you put your hand on her, you’re going to be unable
get this home-welfare golem.”
I pretended to think as I heard the threat that is not a threat.
I won’t lose anything at all. In the first place, Golem D’s design was thrown out there and created in the Magic Kingdom.
It didn’t cost any money, not even a labor fee.
But if I accept it right away, and the prince asks, “Was I too hasty?” then he’ll become suspicious, therefore I’m taking my time answering.
The prince’s face became increasingly anxious that it had become a pretty housekeeper robot. It couldn’t stand it anymore and asked first.
“What will you do?”
It means that the time is ripe.
“…Okay. I promise not to touch the mermaid.”
“Don’t play with words, make sure that she’s safe. What I mean is to not make mistakes or make shameless excuses that others have touched her.”
“Hmph! So you weren’t fooled?”
“Promise me. I do not believe in you.”
The old golem growled with a scalding look.
But it didn’t look threatening at all because it was in a beautiful Android body. Instead of a threat, I heard it as, “You’re tired tonight, so just go to rest please.” says the seemingly Oriental Maid.
Should I scoff at it?
This time, however, I endured.
It was called the far-sighted plan. It’s easy to catch a fish here, but you don’t get the useful golem.
“Alright, I will do what I can do within my limits to keep her safe!”
Let’s paint the big picture for the distant future.
“Haa. How could my position come to be…..”
The old golem sighed, even if he asked me to do what it wanted.
Don’t worry, I will make a great slave out of you!
The process of exchanging golems was very simple, even when the sage was given ownership of the superbot Captain Fantasy.
Just like slave documents exchange, you lay your hands on the core of the Golem and share the promised spells and passwords.
At this point, it’s possible to buy and run off with the orders and passwords, but the Golems aren’t able to break free from contract, so it would be pointless to do so.
Anyway, the contract was over quickly.
Rather, it took longer to say goodbye in a pointlessly dramatic emotional way.
“Prince. I’m so sorry…”
“No, you did your best. I’m satisfied with just that.”
The mermaid and the housekeeper golem exchanged bitter smiles.
… Should I input my blessing as well?
“Tin Can. You’ve heard the contract? Keep that mermaid safe. If you can’t keep her safe, I’ll soak you in the maggi sauce and decorate you.”
Golem D nodded furiously with momentum that could break its neck. It seemed to understand.
I changed my password as soon as the old golem was transferred to me.
With that, the contract and the deal ends.
“Hello, beautiful new owner! I’m very happy to hear that the mermaid that used to keep me company, came to be my owner. I’m very happy to serve under you. Now, even though it is the body of the golem, I was a Hero. I swear here that I will protect you until the day when this body has broken down and stops working.”
Golem D, who summoned The Sword 3 just before it was broken, knelt in front of the mermaid like a knight.
The mermaid looked a little surprised.
“The hero is in the golem…?”
“Yes, it’s unbelievable, but it’s true.”
“That’s right. It’s not like we have a relationship that can be pitched away, thank you very much for the future. What happens to be your name? Oh noble Hero.”
Suddenly, Golem D cried.
“Why, why do you do that?! What did I say?!”
“Finally… I finally met the owner who will call me my name. No matter how much you teach that person, it’s Tin Can every day…. Wah! Thank you, new owner. With all my heart I’m going to take care of you.”
“…The pain of your heart seems deep.”
It was very uncomfortable for me to hear it from so close by.
Why do you need a good name for a measly golem that’s not even a superbot? You should be thankful that I didn’t disassemble you.
Then, a lovely voice could be heard from the side.
The tone was the opposite however.
“My name is Boris. Boris. I will never cooperate if you do not call me by my name.”
“This scammer Tin can! That wasn’t in the contract!”
I complained to the old prince.
“You’re going to complain about the contract which is only basic courtesy?”
“You’re calling the master ‘you’. I don’t care about titles and such.”
“…I will call you Kang Han Soo from now on.”
“You can just call me ‘you’.”
It doesn’t mean that the main contract will be lifted.
“Names are important! You- Ku! Name gives the power of divinity that of inviolability that makes the existence of what Kang Han Soo is. It is in a higher concept than a false force, a Hero’s power. So far, you’ve only noticed your level and skill, but if you want to be stronger than you are now, look no further than your race and profession.”
“Race huh… .”
It was an interesting story.
Is it because I was classified as ‘chaos’?
I think it was a good exchange of golems.
Golem D with set blueprints can be crafted as much as possible, but Boris had useful information and power for me.
I’m the type of person who doesn’t memorize a man’s name.
“Hey. Boris is a man’s name.”
“My soul is a man.”
“Now you’re a pretty Android, no matter how you look at it. How about accepting reality and changing it to a feminine name?”
“I would rather perish. That is my last bit of pride.”
…So Boris became Boris.
However, this was not enough.
Although the housekeeper golem was strengthened by a powerful soul, it did not change its unfortunate body.
So I decided to upgrade.
The Divinity and the Demonic Energy were pushed in turn.
However, is this because it was born like Sword 3? The devil and the devil worshippers’ favorite Demonic Energy could not be intermixed.
▷ Race: Old Golem
▷ Level: 999+
▷ Occupation: Maid (owner → job)↑
▷ Skill: Willpower (Z), Infiltration (Z), Divinity (SSS), Charm (SS), Massage (S)
▷ Condition: Transcendence, reluctance, embarrassment
The affinity to Divinity was terrifying.
If I had not been able to pour out Divinity indefinitely with the skill “infinite”, I would have been sucked out quick.
The job is the ‘Hanyeo’(下女).
In English, maid.
The maid excels at doing more odd chores as the master becomes stronger.
The one in question still calls itself a man, but now they have been recognized as a transcendent being who is a woman to the bone.
“Boris. There’s a lot I want to hear.”
“Hngt! Don’t expect information that will do harm to the country.”
“Let’s start with that then, that country. Hu hu, relax. This is not a betrayal. It’s like a pre-tour before you go sightseeing.”
“You’re a fabricator once you open your mouth.”
“It’s SSS class!”
“I’m not complimenting you!”
Factoria, who was listening to our conversation, smiled and asked.
“It may sound a little strange, but have you known each other for a long time?”
“I don’t know him.”
We met for the first time today.
I could hear the knocking on the door of that violent hero tattered and the captain’s room.
When I looked at the clock, it was about the time of arrival.
Outside the door, the captain said.
“Victoria, Boss. A salvage ship and a rescue ship have arrived, and there’s a rush of requests to guide the captured alien, because of the aviation accident. I know you’re struggling with distress, but I think you’ll have to hurry up.”
…Guide the mermaid?
“Mr.Kang Han Soo, you know in your heart that you want to go back home, but now you’re not an outsider, so could you come with me? Hiik! Your expression! It’s scary! It’s really scary!”
“This girl is really too much! Which country’s law is to spit on a smiling face? Is that what your country’s moral book says?”
We were transferred to the rescue ship, and we moved to the Pacific’s third maritime city, which Factoria operates.
Unintentionally, my hand may slip. By the way…
“When do I go home?”
When I arrive at the maritime city, I’ll have to call home. Then my mother’s tennis racket might slip less.
