I Became a Mafia in the Academy - Chapter 130
We walked toward the mansion in silence. Kwak Chun-sik, who had been staring out the window in a daze, stood up and looked around to see if he sensed anything.
“Heh, what a surprise.”
“……What’s going on?”
“You told me that your father is quite worried about his children, and apparently he is.”
“Didn’t you know?”
Kwak Chun-sik’s eyes widened in surprise, as he realized I really didn’t know what he was talking about.
“Isn’t there a ridiculous fence around this large area?”
“Yes, it seems that people can never enter the mansion without a special mark or person, but……apparently this car has a mark.”
Obviously, there’s very little in the game about Corleone mansion.
I’ve never been to Corleone mansion either, so I thought there must be a reason……I never thought this setting was hidden.
Han Seo-Joon in the front seat seemed to know this, too, and was just driving silently.
I thought it was odd that although the Corleone mansion was heavily guarded, there were no raids or anything like that.
Then I realized there was a setting…….
Wait a minute.
“Han Seo-Joon, does that mean I can’t enter the mansion without the car?”
Han Seo-Joon, who had been driving in silence, spoke up.
“From what I understand, your ring will do the trick, so I don’t think you need to worry too much.”
I thought it was just a ring with the letter ‘C’ on it, but I didn’t realize it could have that effect.
So dad didn’t just give it to me…….
Or maybe it doesn’t mean much, since I’m never going to go out alone anyway.
“Oh, is that your house?”
Through the windshield, he could see a mansion with a huge iron gate and a garden.
Kwak Chun-sik is probably the first person to go there with such excitement, even though it’s usually a symbol of fear because it’s rumored that it’s difficult to survive unless you’re a member of the Corleone family, even if it’s just to have a meal with my father.
If the people in the community from the past saw him, wouldn’t they tell him to stop joking?
“Ho-ho, it’s definitely not a mansion, but a fortress. From the air defense preparations to the magic defenses…… to the guards posted there, it looks like it’s some kind of military secret facility.”
His words made me wonder.
“So, old man, do you think you can break through this place?”
“Huh? You mean me? Let me see…….”
After saying that, Kwak Chun-sik continued to ponder.
Han Seo-Joon was also waiting for his answer.
Finally, Kwak Chun-sik spoke up.
“You mean one percent?”
“Yes, no matter how high the odds are that I can break through here, it’s not higher than one percent. That’s assuming I come in with the intention of dying, and at least two of my limbs are blown off.”
I was a little, or a lot, surprised.
Considering his personality, I expected him to say something like, “No, who do you think I am, I’m going to drill you right now!” but……he was serious.
Two of his limbs would be blown off, what kind of scenario was he running in his head?
While I was still stunned, I heard Han Seo-Joon’s voice.
“May I ask on what basis did you make that assumption?”
“Huh? Oh, I didn’t mean to disrespect Corleone. To be honest, I’m sure I can get past the outer guards and borders if I’m prepared, but I doubt I could deal with all the monsters in the mansion, and fighting them would certainly get me killed.”
I knew who he was talking about and I could think of three off the top of my head.
“Hmm, two of them attacking at the same time? That’s…….Hypothetically, I’m only going to run into one of them, Eugene, so don’t worry. There’s probably only one guy in the whole world that can get through here.”
I had to agree with him.
In the game, will I face my father, Parnello, and Consigliere in the mansion at the same time?
‘Silver Crow…… No, in terms of infiltration, I’d have to go with a geeky magical girl (uncle), and even then, I’m not sure I’d be able to do it.’
It was clear that it would take more time than I could have imagined.
The car pulls up to a stop inside the mansion, and Han Seo-Joon, who was sitting in the driver’s seat, gets out first and opens the door to the back seat.
“We’re finally here, eek!”
Kwak Chun-sik, who got out after me, stretches and looks around.
“Heh. It’s a palace, a palace, they don’t call him Emperor for nothing, hahaha!”
“Alright, let’s go.”
We turned and were about to enter the mansion when the door opened and a man walked out.
“Long time no see, old man.”
“Who is this, Corleone little boy, it’s been a long time!”
Was it out of respect for the elderly?
It was a bizarre sight to see father, who would normally have sat still to greet his guests, take the initiative.
Kwak Chun-sik bowed his head with a respectful expression, while father spread his arms wide and smiled in delight.
Their reunion was more cheerful than expected, and it looked like they hadn’t seen each other in a long time.
The atmosphere began to stir.
What the hell is going on?
“You’re still greeting me harshly, old man.”
“And you are still a monster.”
The two men auras clashed in the air as it surged from their bodies and took over their surroundings.
I wondered why there were so few people to greet us, but did they expect this?
Han Seo-Joon, who was already with us, drove the car and evacuated to another location.
I stood back and watched in disbelief as the two auras crashed into each other like they were going to eat each other.
As the crazed Red Aura tried to attack from all sides, the Blue Aura seemed to neutralize it, gradually expanding its territory.
The Red Aura continues to surge forward, unwilling to be defeated but in response, the Blue Aura sharpens itself and slashes at the surroundings like a sword.
It’s a sight to behold……!
It’s a shame that I can’t, because I’d love to post this to the community: ‘Corleone vs. Kwak Chun-sik real life fight.’
I can’t believe I’m the only one who can watch this epic battle…….
The building shakes, the ground shakes, the dirt around them is being dug up and is slowly cracking.
All the while, both auras operations are inspiring me.
‘I can’t believe they used it that way……and that way…….’
Every single one of them was a higher-level technique that I only see in the second half of the game.
Just looking at it made me wonder, was this the way I thought Aura operated? It’s a scale that makes me wonder.
If this were a game, I would have gotten a notification that my experience had increased.
The two sides exchanged a few more invisible blows.
“Can we stop now? This is expensive flooring.”
“It’s good enough. You’re still going strong after all these years.”
“You are as strong as ever.”
With those words, the auras tapered off and flowed back into the two men’s bodies, and the scene around them, which had been reminiscent of a battlefield just moments before, slowly returned to silence.
“It’s been a while since I’ve warmed up.”
“I’m glad you’re here, too. Let’s go inside.”
“As you wish.”
……Looking like they were going to kill each other with Auras, was a greeting?
I was pretty sure that if it had been me, I would have died instantly without even realizing it.
“Hmph. You seem surprised, huh?”
Kwak Chun-sik’s eyes caught me standing there, dazed, as I was about to take a step, and he spoke to me first.
“You’re surprised by my greatness, aren’t you?”
……I wondered if he just wanted to show off.
Still, it was certainly a sight to behold, so I nodded obediently.
“I’m surprised, to be honest, because I’ve seen with my own eyes what it means to be different.”
“Yes. I wonder if I’ll ever be as strong as you and my father.”
“That’s a silly worry.”
He turned on his heel and strode into the mansion.
“One is your father and one is your teacher. What a futile worry.”
I couldn’t help but smile at the way Kwak Chun-sik spoke as if he were humming a tune.
Certainly, it was a useless worry.
* * *
“Hello, my brother owes you a lot!”
Following my father, who went inside first, Kwak Chun-sik and I stepped into the mansion to find Jiyun giving the now trademarked navel greeting.
“Huh? You have a sister?”
Kwak Chun-sik looks back and forth between Jiyun and me, his eyes wide as if he’s quite surprised by the sight.
“……Yes. This is my sister, Jiyun.”
“I’m Jiyun Han Corleone, please take care.”
Jiyun, who kindly explained her full name to me, smiles as she looks in my direction.
“You’re back, big brother!”
And with that, she falls into my arms.
Somehow, she managed to be polite like she was taught, but it didn’t last more than a few seconds.
It’s something I’m quite used to by now, so I stroke her hair and ask her a question.
“Did someone tell you we had company?”
“Yes. Alessia told me you were coming, so I came to say hello!”
Apparently she heard that he was my teacher and came down out of politeness.
“You didn’t run away from your homework, did you?”
I asked her jokingly, but judging by the way she buried her face in her arms, I must have been right.
-Awww, I still have five pages left!
“Alessia’s looking for you upstairs.”
“Jiyun wants you to tell Alessia that she’s not here!”
Alessia comes down from the second floor without a sound.
She walked down the stairs with quick steps but a very neat and straight posture, looked at us and bowed her head somewhat.
“Shall we go? Miss.”
“Ugh! Alessia is bad!”
Alessia ran up to the second floor with Jiyun clinging to her.
“I guess……is all the same where you live.”
At first, I thought the mafia family’s house was very dingy and dark.
Just then, my father, who had headed to the dining room first, came back in, as if he thought we hadn’t come too far.
“Is there something wrong, old man?”
“Nothing. Your daughter is very cute.”
“You must have seen Jiyun, haha! She’s my daughter, but she’s really cute.”
“I don’t know. She reminds me of my granddaughter, doesn’t she? By the way, how old is your daughter? My granddaughter is 7 years old…….”
“My Jiyun is also 7 years old.”
“Really?! What a coincidence! That’s why…….”
The conversation quickly switched to their daughter and granddaughter, and the two headed to the dining room in good spirits.
Is this a conversation between a fool for his daughter and a fool for his granddaughter?
While listening to their incomprehensible conversation, the food began to arrive at the table one by one.
As if Kwak Chun-sik’s tastes were taken into consideration, a mix of Korean and Italian food was served.
Even so, the combination of the food was carefully thought out, and none of the dishes seemed unpleasant or out of place together.
Carpaccio with squid sundae……?
“I hope you like it.”
“Don’t worry, my mouth is watering just looking at it.”
And so the meal begins, and we start talking about each other.
We talked about recent events, how we decided to take down the Villain Alliance together, and shared small bits of information.
Finally, I realize it’s my turn to speak, and I say the first words.
“Father, I have a favor to ask of you both.”
Father and the old man turned their heads to look at me at the same time.
It’s not that hard.
I just need you to help me get something.
