22 “Son Of That Bastard“
Alex then sent Rosie off as she traveled back to the Demon Realm. He told her to tell her father that Old Man Rivers would continue the investigation as it proved difficult to track down and find the source of the fruits. He gave her 12 of each fruit in the Harem Ring as proof of their investigation progress.

Now, Only Two Remain.
"To Kill or Not to Kill"
Alex contemplated as he walked closer to Old Man Rivers. He picked up a glass of water as he poured it on the Old Man's head.
"Wake up Old Man!"
"What do u want from me?"
"I guess without your powers your at death's door!"
"Anyways, I don't want anything. I got to know everything from the Princess. As u already know, ur going to die sooner or later but I wanted to give u a chance to make it out of here alive."
"What do you...
The Old Man struggled to speak as he started to cough blood from minor organ failure and other issues.
"Let's play a game. Heads or tails!...If it lands on heads u die...if it lands on tails u live."
Alex took out a gold coin and asked the old man:
"I'll be flipping the coin as u are currently immobile. Are u fine with this?"
The Old Man nodded his head in agreement as Alex smirked.
"Let The Game Begin!"
As Alex finished his sentence he flipped the coin. As if time had slowed down the Old Man stared at the coin and watched each and every spin without a blink. The coin hit the ground as it went into the air again. The coin hit the floor 2 more times as the Old Man's heart raced. The coin stopped bouncing and started to spin a few seconds, then the coin fell flat.
The Old Man turned pale as he couldn't believe his eyes.
"Bye Bye Old Critter."
Alex swung his Cursed Dagger as the Old Man's head rolled off his head.
You may ask how he was able to use the cursed dagger. In short, Rosie told Alex that the curse will stay on the dagger as long as Old Man Rivers was alive. So, Alex just needed to kill the old man to release the curse. Simple Right?
This Dagger has been crafted by a Demi-God blacksmith from the Heavenly Realm during the age of war between the Heavenly Realm and Demonic Realm.

Soon after, the system notification went off in his head.

'Gotta give it to this system! So very useful. I almost forgot to thank you for doing absolutely nothing.'
[The Host Can Go Into A spiritual Coma To Absorb The Energy. Should The System Prepare?]
Alex thought of this as a good chance for him to waste time and also get stronger. So why not?
'I have two questions:
How long will I be in this coma?
How much time do I have until your preparations finish?'

'I guess I'll be leaving sooner than I Planned'
Alex walked out the room leaving dead Old Man Rivers on the floor.

On The 5th Floor Waiting Room
"This is Outrageous! We have been waiting for an hour now! How dare that little kid to be so full of himself."
"Your Highness, there's no reason for you to wait for this punk, we should be on our way."
The Phoenix Emperor's right-hand man and little brother Emirate was furious about how they're being treated.
"I would advise otherwise."
Alex came into the room after a servant told him of the situation inside.
"Hello, my name is Alex Rager, sorry to keep you waiting. Please accept this gift to show my sincere apologies."
He had a servant bring in a basket with all five Divine Fruits one of each. The servant placed the basket on the glass coffee table, then left the room.
"Please this was Alex, take a seat."
The Phoenix Emperor stood up from the sofa to welcome Alex.

"Thank You for your generosity. I came to apologize on behalf of my two sons and hope we can be forgiven for our rudeness."
The Emperor bowed his head as he waited for Alex's response.
"Emperor, there's no reason for us to apologize. Please lift your head."
The Emperor looked to the direction of his brother and gave him the scariest death stare of his life. The Little brother stopped in his way and also bowed down. He knew that his older brother wasn't bowing down on his own will, as Emperor he should bow down to no man even if he says he's God.
"Please lift your heads. I think you're apologizing to the wrong person."
Both the Emperor and his brother said in a confused tone.
Alex signals with two figures to Elisa telling her to come inside.
Elisa walks quickly towards Alex as she was scared and nervous. Almost like a rabbit put in a lions cage.
Elisa bowed down to the Phoenix Emperor and his right-hand man.
"Let me introduce you two to my girlfriend, Elisa. She is the one who your sons assaulted. I think you two should understand the rest."
They both took a gulp as they knew exactly what to do and they wanted no part in it. As even the Emperor hesitate to bow down for the second time.
"What happened? I thought you wanted to apologize or should we just end it here?"
The Emperor started to sweat as he clearly knew that if he didn't bow down right now he would lose all ties with the Auction House and furthermore the Rager Family.
His pride as an Emperor went down the drain as he deeply bowed down and apologized to Elisa.
"Please Forgive My Sons For Their Sins."
Alex was not one to let such an opportunity fly by him. He took this chance as he went into negotiation mode.
"Elisa, do you accept their apology and forgive them for what they have done to you."
She nodded in acceptance of their apology.
The Emperor and his brother lifted their heads, as a big weight was removed from their shoulders.
"Phoenix Emperor, I would like to negotiate a deal. I would like to offer you two pills. They can cure your sons of this horrible fate."
The Emperor's eyes shone with joy and smiled from ear to ear hearing that his sons could be saved from this fate. Not only was their fate going to be saved, but also the Emperor's legacy. As he could pass on his throne to one of his sons.
"In return, A Blood Bound Contract."
"What are your conditions? As long as it's within my power, I will do the utmost to abide by conditions."
"I don't think you understand. The type of contract we're making is not any ordinary one. If you fail to abide by my conditions, You Die."
Phoenix Emperor thought that he was ready to die for his sons but when the chance arrived he started to hesitate and cold sweat ran down his back.
'Am I really ready to die for my sons. Sh*t! Let me at least hear his conditions.'
"I have 3 conditions"
1) You are to protect both the Rager and Frederick Family.
2) You are to aid both the Rager and Fredrick family.
3) You are to never betray these orders as your life will be on the line.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Alex then used his ability to create a Blood Bound Contract. A black scroll floated in front of the Emperor with the conditions written.
"All the contract needs is a couple of drops of blood to complete. The decision is yours. Will you save your sons?"
The Emperor hardened his resolve and pierced his finger with his spiritual energy as blood started to form.
As soon as the Emperor's blood landed on the Black Scroll, it absorbed the blood and changed into a crimson color.
"Now, all that's left is for you to read the bottom line."
The Emperor closed his cut and look at the bottom of the scroll.
"I Sebastian Inferno, agree to abide by these set conditions as I offer my body and soul."
The scroll started to shine blindingly as it dissolved into the Emperor's body becoming one with him.
'System, get me two pills to fix those disgusting creatures.'
After the contract was formed the Emperor took a seat and looked into Alex's eyes demanding those pills.
Alex smiled and snapped his fingers twice as two Divine pills appeared in his hand.
"Here's the pills. Let your sons swallow it whole and they will be up and running in a matter of seconds."
The Emperor was amazed as he felt an enormous amount of energy radiating from those pills.
"Thank You! If you'll excuse us, we'll be on our way."
"It's my honor to be of help."
The Emperor and his brother left the room as if they had won the lottery.
"If these pills can't save them, then nothing can."
The Emperor truly believed in his words. So did his brother, as they hurried to their VIP room.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
"Alex, I was really scared. How could you deal with them as you do?"
Alex hugged Elisa tightly as he let out a sigh of relief.
"I was scared too. However, I will do anything for our families. I love all of you so much, that's why I will do anything for your wellbeing and safety."
"Let's leave, it's been a long day for both of us."
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Alex sent Elisa to say her goodbyes to Rebecca and Leila while he prepares the Spirit Stones for his Spiritual Coma.
"Done! 1,000 High-Grade and 30,000 Mid-Grade Spirit Stones."
"Let's keep it in the system inventory"
As if the pile of Spiritual Stones disappeared, nothing was left. Alex then left the room.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Alex walked down to the buzzing VIP Hall as all the guests conversed among themselves and spoke about their winnings, etc.
There was nothing out of the ordinary so Alex started to take his leave as he would wait in the carriage for Elisa.
Everything had stopped following the order. Drops of water could be seen floating midair. Not a single sound, not a single heartbeat. Except, a single young woman.
"Alex, you filthy piece of shit!"
"I came to kill you and your father. However, it seems that your father didn't attend such a big event."
"I guess I'll kill him some other time."
She walked up to Alex who was frozen like the rest, but she made sure that Alex was not completely frozen. He was only immobilized, couldn't talk or see.
"Such a cute little brother."
"You just had to be THAT FILTH BASTARD'S CHILD!"
"You're the reason why my mother died. Now you'll pay for your sins."
She was right in front of Alex as she took out a dull sword and pierced it through Alex's heart.
'Mom! Dad! I have killed that filthy child, I will not rest till I kill that Bastard. I swear to the heavens that He Will Die and suffer the pain we have felt.'

[Host Will Now Go Into Spiritual Coma Mode]
She heard Alex speak and put up her guard in confusion. As she slowly turned around, she saw crystals forming and warping around Alex's body.
She rushed over at the speed of light and attacked the Crystals. However, her attacks were futile and didn't even make a dent.
The Crystals which formed around Alex had completely enclosed itself. As Alex used his last bit of Spiritual Energy to close his wound with the sword still jammed inside him.
"We'll Meet Again."
