Destroying My Own Novel – Chapter 62 Bahasa Indonesia

“What’s the meaning of this, Mykel? Do you know this demon lord?” Agnez asked as she grabbed the photo on the wall and pointed her finger at it.

“It’s a long story, but for now let’s leave this place then I can tell you guys who that demon lord is,” Mykel said as he looked back at the scene for one last time and then left the room with Agnez and Lillith.

Gunnar and the others went back up the stairs while Mykel stayed down there to burn everything into ashes. Once he burned everything, he went upstairs where the others were waiting for him.

Mykel went quiet after he found out that Zherlthsh was the demon lord that they summoned. It wasn’t really a problem for him, but the problem was the people around him. Zherlthsh was famous for her method of torturing people and Mykel experienced it himself back then so he didn’t want any of them to be her target.

“Did you see the demon lord in their memories, Lillith?” Mykel asked as he stared at Lillith who walked next to him and Agnez.

“No, I don’t think those people weren’t there when the summoning ritual happened. They only brought dozens of people down there and they left immediately,” Lillith answered with her straight face. “But, I did see the man who held a dagger in his hand, his cloak was covered in blood and I believe he was the one who killed all of them,” she said as she looked at Mykel.

“I need to find that person, he or she should know where the demon lord is at since he or she is now Zherlthsh’s servant,” Mykel said with his arms crossed.

“That would be hard,” Agnez said and glanced at Mykel.

“It’s hard but we know whose Zherlthsh is looking for,” Mykel replied as he put a cigarette in his mouth.

Agnez and Lillith looked at Mykel and they both were curious about it, and they were the only ones who knew about it since they were the only ones who entered the room with him.

They went back to the hotel room and Mykel explained the situation to them, and who was demon lord Zherlthsh was. His encounter with Zherlthsh during his hunt for the artifact was the reason why she came all the way down there. He never thought and the chance of Zherlthsh to be the one who got summoned was really unbelievable.

“So you’re telling us that the demon lord they summoned isn’t just any demon lord but the daughter of Azazel himself?” Rozan asked with a fearfully surprised expression.

“Don’t forget that she’s here for Mykel, so we are going to deal with it as well,” Agnez said with an unfazed expression while leaning on the wall.

“No, I’m not going to bring anyone with me for this one. I’m going to deal with her myself,” Mykel said and sat down on the chair staring at them. “I dealt with her once and I know what she’s capable of and I survived. Now that I have become stronger, I think I should be able to fight her on my own,” he explained as he stared blankly at the glass wall behind them.

“But boss, what if you can’t win against her? At least let us stay by your side and help you,” Gunnar said as he stood up and looked at Mykel with a serious expression.

Mykel stared at him and raised his eyebrows. “Do you know how easy it is for me to kill all of you right now? I can just sit here and do nothing while at the same time killing you all,” he said. “Now imagine that Zherlthsh is twice of my current power, do you still think you have a chance to blink your eyes the moment you see her?” he asked and looked at every one of them.

Myke sighed and leaned on the chair as he rubbed his face. Everyone was staring at him silently and they could tell that he was a bit troubled by it.

“It’s better for me to go by myself, for now, you guys should go back and protect Lyneth at all cost because I don’t want anything to happen to her. It’s better if you guys hide with Lyneth as well because I don’t Zherlthsh to hunt you guys as well,” Mykel said as he stood up. “Don’t tell Lyneth what you just heard, I will be leaving now,” he said as he grabbed his blazer and then left the hotel room.

A few days had passed, and Lyneth started to feel suspicious about Gunnar and the other’s behaviors ever since they came back from District 14. She might not notice it if she looked at Agnez and Lillith’s behaviors but Jeanne, Nagy, and Gunnar were the most obvious ones the more day passed.

“Jeanne,” Lyneth said as she stared at Jeanne from her desk. “Can you tell me what really happened back there?” she asked and kept staring at Jeanne with her hands held together and put in front of her mouth.

Jeanne was startled when Lyneth suddenly asked that question and she couldn’t hide her panicking expression. Agnez glanced at her and immediately rolled her eyes as she sighed in disappointment.

“Agnez, Lillith, can you leave us alone? It seems that you guys are hiding something from me,” Lyneth said as she stood up. Agnez and Lillith nodded and then left Lyneth’s office leaving Jeanne and Lyneth alone.

Jeanne gulped as she watched Lyneth sit down on the sofa in front of her while kept staring at her.

“Before I ask you what happened, I want to ask you something first,” Lyneth said as she crossed her legs and leaned on the sofa. “Did you sleep with Mykel a few days ago? You can’t lie to me because I can smell your perfume all over his body when you guys came back from District 9,” she asked with a serious expression.

“I…” Jeanne hesitated but then she took a deep breath and nodded her head. “I did, but that wasn’t Mykel’s fault, it was me who approached him and I was the one who want it,” she answered with fear written all over her face.

“You know that I just made it up, I didn’t smell anything on his body back then,” Lyneth said as she stood up and looked down at Jeanne who looked panicked. “So that’s how it is,” she said quietly.

Jeanne went to her knees and looked down. “Please don’t blame Mykel! I was the one who did it and I will leave if Miss Lyneth wants me to leave,” she said with her head kept looking down.

“Leave you say?” Lyneth said as she stood in front of Jeanne. “Why would I want you to leave if you’re going to keep doing it with him. Doesn’t that makes you more freedom to see him and have sex with him?” she asked with her arms crossed.

“I will not see him again, I can promise you that, Miss Lyneth,” Jeanne answered with a bit of hesitation.

“Don’t make a fool of me, I know better how Mykel treats a woman. Do you think you can leave his side after you experienced it yourself? I know better and I know for sure that you can’t live without him anymore, am I right?” Lyneth asked as she put her finger on Jeanne’s chin and lifted it up.

Jeanne couldn’t say anything because Lyneth was on point with her words and she couldn’t leave Mykel’s side because he was precious to her.

“That’s why I won’t let you leave so I can keep an eye on you,” Lyneth said while she kept holding Jeanne’s chin. “I will also let you sleep with him but in exchange, I want you to tell me what happened back there,” she continued.

Jeanne was in a dilemma because Mykel told her that he didn’t want Lyneth to know about the current situation, but at the same time, knowing that Lyneth allowed her to be by his side was something that she wished for.

“So? What do you say? I will not give you another chance,” Lyneth said as she leaned her head closer to Jeanne’s face. “Tell me, and you will be his woman, like me,” she continued with a smirk on her face.

Jeanne closed her eyes as she breathe heavily, she then nodded her head in agreement.

Agnez and Lillith were sitting on the sofa outside Lyneth’s office, and then they saw Lyneth come out from her office with Jeanne following her from behind. Jeanne looked at Agnez and she just looked down and didn’t say a word but that was enough to tell Agnez what happened in there.

“Prepare the plane,” Lyneth said to her assistant. “Bring everyone, we will go to District 14 to see Mykel,” Lyneth said as she glanced at Agnez.
