Card Apprentice Daily Log - Chapter 862 Theories
Date- 3 April 2321
Location- Sky Blossom City, Guild Association Mall, Warehouse no.234
“By Davies family, you mean your runaway father’s second family that you slaughtered as soon as you became the commander of the southern watch,” Asong asked.
“Yes, that one. You know I searched their treasury for those devil ingredients but never found them,” said Anna nonchalantly.
“So, that clears it. Redfall got the card from the Davies family. That means this doesn’t have anything to do with the demon worshippers,” Asong announced as she did not want to make this hunt for reborn Redfall more complicated by adding demon worshippers to the mix.
“Not quite so,” Anna spoke with a stressed expression.
“What do mean?” Asong asked impatiently.
“Well, a couple of days ago I found out that the Davies family has a link with the demon worshipers,” Anna answered.
“I thought you slaughtered every last one of the Davies, how can they still be present?” Asong asked in confusion.
“It’s complicated, but all you have to know is that ‘not’ my niece escaped the massacre with her mother’s sacrifice. And recently I found out that she is working for the demon worshippers. But now that I think about all the recent incidents in the sky blossom city it is starting to make sense.” Anna said mysteriously.
“You don’t mean to say demigod Redfall is hiding in the demon realm,” Ann blurted following Anna’s line of thought.
“Yes, I think the demon worshippers weren’t here just to steal the dungeon relocation apparatus but help Demigod Redfall move to the Demon Realm.” Anna enunciated.
“What are you guys talking about? Little details would help,” said Asong hearing the discussion between Ann and Anna.
“You must have already read my report of Demon worshippers attacking us a few days ago, right?” Anna asked Asong who nodded, “Yes, I did.”
“Well, in that report I forgot to mention Ada Davies, ‘not’ my niece. At that time I thought she had sought asylum in the demon worshippers but now it seems that Davies family was part of them. And apart from trying to steal the dungeon relocation apparatus, they seemed to have helped Redfall escape to the demon realm. Most of this is my assumption I don’t have evidence to back it up” Anna explained.
“Demon Realm, If demigod Redfall has escaped there then it can explain why the soul status candle is not able to track his location.” Asong’s aide seemed to agree with Anna’s assumption.
“…” I, who was listening to them, felt like I dodged the bullet seeing everything unravel in my favor. Especially, them believing that demigod Redfall has escaped to the demon realm.
“Wait, this doesn’t make sense. Even Yin-widow was not able to find her son so she risked her for it. That was before the demon worshippers attacked the temporary base and the city,” Ann suddenly pointed out.
“Are you saying that demigod Redfall did not escape to the demon realm? Then how do you explain the malfunctioning soul status candle,” Anna questioned Ann.
“How sure are you that the Soul status candle will work on someone who has been reborn?” Anna asked.
Hearing Ann’s question Asong turned to look at her aide, who answered, “Madam, there are no records of such a scenario. I will have to contact the historian in the central capital for answers.”
“Fuck! Asides from a bunch of theories we have nothing on demigod Redfall. We are right where we started.” Asong cussed, which was so not like her but that was how much she was frustrated right now.
But Anna did not care for that and instead pointed, “Asong, language.’
After giving Anna an angry glance Asong politely apologized, “I am sorry,” and added, “Anna, why did you not mention Ada Davies in your report? Do you know how big of a deal it is? One of the families that participated in the purge of demon worshippers and were rewarded for it was a part of demon worshippers all along, this news will shake all four regions and the central region. Anna, what were you thinking?”
“I told you already I thought she had sought asylum in the demon worshipers, I did not know the entire Davies family was part of it. And there is no evidence pointing to it, all of it is just an assumption at this point.” Being questioned by on-edge Asong Anna started to sound smarter.
“Assumption or not, this will raise a lot of questions.” Hearing Anna Asong got calmer but soon realized evidence did not matter Ada Davies working as a demon worshipper will raise a lot of questions about the old regime and the purge of demon worshippers. Frustrated Asong looked at Anna and yelled, “Anna why can’t you write a complete report? If your report contained all the information, the related authorities would have been informed. And just maybe they would have caught demigod Redfall by now and also handled the Ada Davies matter.”
“Fuck, don’t make it sound like all of this is my fault. I wasn’t the one who left a direct descendant of demigod Redfall alive, I wasn’t the one who did not do a proper background check on the families participating in the purge of demon worshippers.” Anna snapped hearing Asong make it all her fault.
‘Is this what plastic sisters are like?’ I thought to myself seeing Anna and Asong at each other’s throats.
Anna and Asong had high ranks and nobody in the warehouse could outrank them to stop them from reaching for each other’s throats except for Ann, who yelled, “Stop it, both of you. Now is not the time to play the blame game. Anna assigns some soldiers to search the city and dungeons for the signs of demigod Redfall and demon worshippers. And Big sis Asong you contact the central capital and update them about the situation here. We need to find Demigod Redfall’s whereabouts before the tragedy repeats itself.”
“You are not the boss of me,” snapping at Ann, Anna summoned her grimoire to do what Ann advised. As for Asong, she looked around the warehouse, politely apologized to everyone, and then thanked Ann for her reminder before summoning her grimoire to inform the related authorities.
