Chapter 120 – I met the king of the underground!
“…Why is there a human here?”
Came the sudden low voice. I looked around to see who had said it.
However, there was no one in sight.
And so I introduced myself first.
“I am Heal. I have come to meet the king of the underground! Are you the king?”
And then the voice echoed again.
“Indeed, I am the king of the underground. What business do you have with me?”
“First, I would like to apologize. We needed the magma desperately, and so we took some in spite of the promise.”
The king of the underground said calmly.
It seemed as if he was uninterested.
“By the way, Heal. You are a human then?”
“Yes, I am.”
“And did the others not tell you that I hate humans?”
“They did. But I am responsible for taking the magma. And so I came here myself.”
It wasn’t just the cave. I was responsible for everything that happened on this island.
I could leave negotiations to others if it wasn’t dangerous.
However, something like this I had to do myself.
After a moment of silence, the king of the underground asked his next question.
“And what do you know of me?”
“That you have the power to burn everything.”
“Hmm. And yet you came. That is very brave… Hmm. Just as I wanted.”
He sounded very pleased. Then he continued.
“So, you want to make up for what you did?”
“If that is what you want. I will do my utmost in making it up to you.”
