Chapter 147: Have a Nice Day

y sequelae. But… most people here wouldnt have the aura needed…” The man paused as he watched Jacks shake his head and slip out the door.

“Thats good. You should brace yourself. Ill direct it at this idiot, but you know how aura is.” Derek winked at the clerk.

“Idiot!? You called me an idiot?”

Derek finally stopped tuning out the ranting guards words as he turned to look at him. First, he grabbed the elfs wrist and squeezed. His strength was about the same as the guards. It was just enough to remove his hand from his shoulder. Then Derek turned the rest of the way around.

While holding the elfs wrist, Derek channeled the void and mana inside his body, slowly increasing the amount so as not to lose control. He wanted to direct his aura at the group of elves and do his best to not hit any bystanders. He wasnt the best at controlling his aura, but if he increased it little by little, it should work.

Seeing Dereks plan, both guards snorted and released their aura. “Please step back Milady.” One of them said, and the female elf took a few steps back.

The aura flooded over Derek, and he heard a grunt from behind him. The clerk was hit as well. The auras were stronger than his at the moment because they blasted them out all at once. Derek increased the speed at which he was releasing his own, and soon, the sluggish feeling of being in ones aura was no longer affecting Derek.

He smiled as the guards eyes widened. “You really shouldnt fuck with random people. Especially in a city like Savannah.” Derek said.

Then, he doubled the rate at which he released the aura. The haughty highness behind the guards was the first to fall to her knees.

“Mi…lady.” One of the guards spoke.

Derek did his best to pull some of the aura off the female elf and push everything onto the two guards. He still had a lot left to release, but he settled for bringing them to their knees. Once all three elves were down, he drew the aura back in and stopped releasing it.

He looked around the room. He was proud of himself. One man who was standing directly behind the haughty elf had fallen to one knee, but the rest of the room was all left standing. Some were sweating bullets, but they were still on their feet.

Derek stepped between the two guards and stood before the elven lady. He snapped his fingers, causing her to look up. The haughty expression was no longer on her face.

“Now… Milady. Do you mind if I finish purchasing my property?” The elf only stared at him. “No? Thats good.”

He turned and walked back to the counter. “Now, where were we?”

“Ah…. Yes…” The clerk mumbled. “Sign here. This says you are to receive lot 33801. This… says that you are to pay 10,000 gold now, for first and last month, then 5,000 gold per month after.” The clerk flipped a few pages. “This agreement states that the property tax is included in the monthly rent, but the city will receive 13% of profits reported at the end of each quarter.”

Derek whistled. 13% was quite a lot. Of course, at the beginning, 13% of nothing would still be nothing. He would worry about that when he got to it. Derek signed a few more pages of the agreement before finishing.

“Great. That will be 10,000 gold or items of equivalent value plus 10%.”

Derek held his hand out and a small mountain of coins fell onto the counter, causing the man to widen his eyes and shake his head.

“You should visit the bank.” The clerk said. “There are much better ways to store currency.” Still, as he was talking, the man waved, and the mountain of gold vanished from the counter.

He then put the signed documents on one part of the counter and injected some mana into a rune. In a flash, another copy of the papers was sitting beside the original. The man picked the documents up and handed them to Derek. “Here you go. You should keep the agreement well. If you lose it, the replacement fee is 1,000 gold.”

Derek took the documents and stored them in his bracelet.

“Congratulations on your purchase.” The clerk said. “You are now the owner of lot number 33801. Good luck on you ventures.”

“Thank you.” Derek said.

“Is there anything else I can help you with today?” The clerk asked.

“Nope, that is all.” Derek said. “Have a good day.”

Derek turned around to see the guards back on their feet and the female elf standing behind them. The guards wouldnt look Derek in the eyes, and their charge seemed to be very interested in a spot on the floor.

Derek put his hand on the one guards shoulder and gave it a light squeeze. “You all have a nice day.” He said before walking out.
