Collecting The Male Leads' First Nights - Chapter 26
Luca firmly wrapped his hands around her shoulders, naturally taking her to the sofa. Following Luca in an unguarded moment, Sylvia glanced at the corner as she sat on the sofa.
There were tons of health food boxes stacked on one side of the wall. In addition, Luca’s sinister smile, like he was tapping on a calculator… Sylvia felt ominous.
‘What, he doesn’t want me to buy a lot of food and sell it, right? I can’t be a pyramid salesperson when I have a lot of work to do.’
Sylvia jumped up and reached out her hand silently to Luca.
“Please give me the pay you promised. I think I’ve earned my share?”
“Ah, sit down for a moment. I was seriously trying to talk about business.”
“No, it’s fi…”
“10,000 gold a day if you work here as a regular employee. How about it? Does it not interest you?”
At Luca’s words, Sylvia’s eyes opened wide. 10,000… 10,000 gold? It was a crazy pay. From what he said, it seemed like he wasn’t pressuring her to buy. Besides, if she became a regular employee, she could keep an eye on Luca, whom she was incapable of targeting right now.
“Yeah, it’s a fine offer, isn’t it? Oh, just in case, you don’t have to buy anything like all the other plain employees. With your eloquence, I don’t think selling a million jade floors is a dream.”
“Wow, that’s quite goo…”
The moment Sylvia put on a bright expression and tried to accept the offer, a message appeared with a warning sound.
[Sylvia led countless people into the pyramid world. Karma has increased by 50 points.]
Without giving her a chance to be shocked, another message popped up.
[Because a skill was used indiscriminately in front of an audience of 100 or more people, the 〈Status Abnormality: Feeble〉 will be applied for 3 hours.]
As soon as she saw the message, Sylvia felt her nose becoming wet. As she unconsciously touched her nose, her finger was covered in sticky blood. She was bleeding from both nostrils. Luca stood up, surprised to see Sylvia bleeding from her nose.
“Huh? Sylvia, your nose is bleeding.”
It didn’t end with the nosebleed. Her head began to spin as her whole body became cold. Luca, who approached her, ripped off a tissue and blocked her nose, flustered.
The cost of using the skill carelessly was too harsh. 50 karma… If she had become a regular employee in the pyramid, she would have gone to hell in no time. In addition, it even added a status abnormality because she used her skill extensively.
Sylvia stumbled and got up from the sofa. Luca stood up at the same time to help her, but she politely rejected his hand. Even though she was a pervert, her body hurt, and her karma had increased, so the help of the handsome man, who was the cause provider, was unwelcome.
“Ah… It’s alright. Please give me the pay.”
“Alright. I’ll be sure to pay you.”
Luca called the big guy and handed over 1,000 gold to Sylvia.
After receiving the money, Sylvia went into the dressing room and changed her clothes to go home. When Sylvia opened the dressing room door and came out, Luca, who was standing in front of her, waiting, urgently grabbed her.
“Will you accept the regular employee proposal?”
“I don’t think that’s going to work.”
When Sylvia declined the offer, Luca spoke with an incomprehensible expression.
“… Why? A normal person can’t earn 10,000 gold even if they work for one month.”
“I have a lot of work to do besides this.”
Sylvia took his hand off her shoulder and started walking back. She wanted to go home quickly and rest because she kept feeling chills.
‘No, ugh. When I get home, I have to attach the eyes to the dolls.’
Sevis, who arrived home first, was probably rubbing his eyes while diligently sticking the eyes on the dolls, so she had to go and work with him.
She held her pounding head and walked feebly, but Luca grabbed her again. Sylvia faltered and powerlessly looked up at Luca.
“I have no intention of becoming a regular employee.”
“No, that’s not it… I’m taking you home.”
“… I’m fine.”
“It’s because I’m worried.”
‘Worried my ass, isn’t he going to find my house and force me to take care of the jade floors or health food?’
When she felt sick, the positive and obscene thoughts were pulled back far away, and only negative thoughts filled her head. In this feeble state, everything was a nuisance to Sylvia, whether it was a handsome man or not.
Her usual self would have breathed hot breath into Luca’s ear, who was standing next to her, but she didn’t have any motivation. As she shook off his hand and weakly walked up the stairs, Luca hurriedly followed her.
Filled with negative thoughts in that feeble state, Sylvia judged that Luca had not yet given up on his interest to scout her as a regular employee.
‘I don’t have any strength in my body, so let’s just accept the help he is giving me.’
She didn’t reject Luca’s hand, which kept hanging around her side, and let him do as he wanted.
Luca linked their arms and supported her slender body, as she couldn’t grasp the situation in that weak state. Luca’s heart pounded at the fragrant woman scent that came as he embraced her gently. After seeing Sylvia’s eloquent speech, his heart had been beating violently.
If it was this woman, if he was with this woman, dominating the world with jade floors wasn’t just a dream.
Luca looked at Sylvia passionately. She was the woman who would allow him to succeed, the only woman in his life his father would repeatedly say he should not lose.
‘She’s lovely. I want to make her my girl.’
Was it because she set up an unprecedented sales record? Luca shook his head. Somehow, that didn’t seem to be all. He felt good every time he and Sylvia touched each other. It felt strange to Luca, who was usually preoccupied with making money without being interested in women.
Feeling like she was losing her consciousness in the abnormal condition, she leaned her body on the firm arm that held her. As her whole body was getting hotter, her vision blurred. Luca’s face became slightly flushed with the touch of her soft chest against his arm.
It was the first time he had had a proper conversation with her, but he felt like he had been deeply entangled with her many times. The golden eyes that looked at Sylvia suddenly softened.
Luca, who helped Sylvia and brought her outside the hotel, whispered in her ear. It was a soft voice, unlike the first time.
“Sylvia, where is your house?”
‘Did my ears become broken too with the status abnormality? His voice is more mellow than when he spoke with the noblewoman who bought a hundred jade floors.’
“Ugh, you can return to the hotel now… I will go alone somehow… Ugh…”
Sylvia did not want Luca to know where her home was. Noel was a target character and a polite person, so he wouldn’t come to her house, but she didn’t know what Luca would do if she told him where she lived.
‘He could make me take responsibility for the jade floors, or he could send a big guy to threaten me into becoming an employee.’
She wanted to target Luca after doing something with Noel, who she could target right away even if her mind was more chaotic than anything. She met a dead-ending twice; did she really need to tell him where she lived and make it difficult? She still didn’t know how to get rid of the poison.
Luca was a target character anyway, so they would meet again under the game’s law of causality; and if they didn’t, she just had to find a place that was selling jade floors.
Luca shook his head firmly at Sylvia’s words.
“I can’t do that, how will you get home on your own like this? I’ll take you by carriage.”
“Ha… I said it’s fine…”
“I’m not a bad guy who leaves a sick woman behind.”
Luca smiled at Sylvia with his beautiful golden eyes and stared softly at her. Luca’s eyes narrowed as Sylvia was startled, despite being in pain, as if he was behaving abnormally.
‘Why is he acting like this all of a sudden? Did he eat something wrong?’
Even in her dizzy mind, Sylvia felt that Luca had become a little strange. If Sylvia was in a healthy state, she would cheer inwardly at Luca’s mellow eyes, but Sylvia wasn’t like that right now.
She didn’t want to care about anything. She wanted to lie down and rest right away.
Without realizing it, Luca instinctively said something cheesy and cursed inwardly.
‘Was I too hasty?’
Feeling that his mouth was dry, Luca licked his lips with his tongue. His heart started beating faster as he helped support Sylvia’s body, and, although he shouldn’t be like this with a sick person, his breathing became rough.
He looked at Sylvia, smiling and pretending to be calm, but inside, he was perplexed by his body’s reaction.
‘Was I such a piece of crap? I can’t believe I’m this excited by a sick woman.’
In fact, Luca was the successor of a giant dark organization that stretched out its hands like tentacles and ran all kinds of illegal businesses.
Since he was going to become the next boss after his father, he was as trashy as anyone else, but he could at least be proud that he had never done anything bad to the opposite sex. Although his mouth became a dirty rag because of his business, he kept his body pure.
Just getting excited by Sylvia, who was sick, made him feel guilty.
Just as Luca was about to sweep Sylvia’s bangs as she leaned blankly against him without answering, someone ran over and grabbed Luca’s hand.
“Who are you, sir?”
A red-eyed man with black hair covered by a hat glared at him with wary eyes and pulled his hand away from Sylvia.
‘A boy? No, is he closer to a man?’
Apparently, he was acquainted with Sylvia.
‘I don’t like the look in his eyes.’
Luca snickered at the sudden uninvited guest and embraced Sylvia’s waist tightly again.
“Who are you? Why are you suddenly cutting in?”
“Miss Sylvia? Get yourself together.”
Sevis had finished his business and was waiting near the hotel to go home with Sylvia. He was slowly wandering around the entrance in case they would miss each other, but he wondered why she was coming out while being held by a tall man.
At first glance, the man looked like a good-for-nothing with a bad character. Even though he addressed him respectfully, he spoke casually to him from the beginning. And even his arrogant expression, looking down at him with his chin raised while holding Sylvia’s waist, whom he must have met for the first time today. Sevis didn’t like Luca.
