Chapter 380 - Preposition
"Huh? Sir Yung, what brings you here?" The officer voiced out with a respectful tone.
"Give me some time alone with the kid," Yung Jo said with an authoritative tone.
"Erm, my apologies sir Yung, but I can't do that… Endric is under strict supervision and is not to share a conversation with anyone during his isolation punishment except for the officers that were assigned to him," The officer explained lengthily.
"I'm going to need to ask you to leave now," The officer added.
Yung Jo ignored his rants and kept walking forward till he arrived in front of the officer.
Yung Jo was at least a head taller than the officer. He stared down at him and lowered his head before whispering some words into his left ear.
The officer's eyes widened slightly after hearing the words Yung Jo whispered into his ears. His mouth opened slightly as he spoke, "I- You have five minutes with him sire, please make it quick,"
Although he was trying to hide it, his voice was slightly shaky. He started moving forward and left through the door-like opening on the west of the enclosed space.
Endric, who had witnessed what had just gone down, stared at Yung Jo with a slightly suspicious look.
"What did you say to him?" Endric questioned while narrowing his eyes in a slit, "Who are you?"
Yung Jo ignored these questions and moved forward till he arrived before Endric.
"Those questions are unimportant… Who I am doesn't matter," He said with a smile.
"I have a question for you… How badly do you wish to defeat your big brother?" Yung Jo added with a sketchy smirk planted on his face.
Endric forehead creased as he stared at Yung Jo, "How is that any business of yours?"
Yung Jo was a little startled by Endric's response, but he wasted no time in giving a reply.
"I wish to help you… I am a friend who wishes to see you win in every situation, I want to support you," Yung Jo stated while stretching out his right hand.
Endric stared at his outstretched hand, then looked back up to stare at him before turning around to ignore his hand.
"I don't need your help. I can defeat Gustav on my own," Endric stated with a prideful look with a hint of annoyance.
"He's just a…." Endric's hands trembled as he squeezed his fingers into a fist.
"Are you sure about that?" Yung Jo cut him off from behind.
"Sure about what?" Endric asked.
"You're supposed to only spend two month in isolation, but that's only based on if they see improvement in your behavior… What if they don't and keep you here longer than two months?" Yung Jo stated.
Endric's eyes widened as he heard that.
"If this happens, how will you ever get the chance to defeat your brother? Remember your fate lies in their hands and you're powerless to make the decisions you wish to make," Yung Jo said as he moved forward.
"Also, your brother now has a personnel rank in the MBO and will be undertaking missions soon so if you don't get to the MBO base soon you might never be able to challenge him… Areyou sure you want risk this by waiting around? I really thought your goal was to defeat your brother and show the world that you're better… I guess I was wrong," Yung Jo stopped speaking after saying this and turned around to leave.
"Wait… are you saying you can do something to change that?" Endric turned around to ask.
Yung Jo paused his footsteps and turned around.
"I can make you leave here in exactly two months' time regardless of your behaviour and conduct… If you wish I can also shorten your isolation sentence by a month," Yung Jo proposed.
"You can do that?" Endric said with a surprised tone as he realized this man was not as simple as he thought.
"Yes I can… afterwards we can make plans together on how you can effectively deal with your brother. If you agree to my conditions you will receive my help. This is going to be a mutual gain kind of collaboration, we will both benefit from this," Yung Jo explained.
"Hmm… and how exactly will you benefit from this?" Endric asked.
"You just have to work with me and undergo any mission I give you for the next two years after you complete your training in the MBO… If you agree to this I will also help you climb through the ranks of the MBO faster and become superior to your peers," Yung Jo stated.
"Two years? What ar…" Before Endric could complete his sentence, the officer that left earlier came back in through the opening towards the west area.
"Time's up sir Yung, please you have to leave now," The officer voiced out as he walked towards them.
"Hmm alright," Yung Jo replied as he turned around.
"We'll talk some other time Endric… think about it and give me an answer when next we meet," Yung Jo voiced out as he left through the opening.
Endric stood in place for several moments with a look of contemplation.
"What did you two discuss about," The officer asked with a look of curiosity.
"None of your business old man," Endric voiced out disrespectfully before moving towards the side to sit.
He was already worn out from today's training, so he wanted to rest for a while and also think about Yung Jo's proposal.
He had been here for about two weeks now, so if he decided to agree with Yung Jo's proposal, he could get out of here in the next two weeks and join the others at camp.
'Two years… And I have to complete any mission he gives me,' Endric wondered inwardly.
'After my four years training… when that time comes, I will be powerful enough to cancel out our deal if I want to. After all power can turn around any fate… He must be stupid if he thinks he can make use of me however he likes. Instead I'll be the one using him to get out of isolation,' Endric thought as a smirk appeared on his face.
