I'm Really Not the Demon God's Lackey Chapter 55: Doris' Seed

Feige and Leonard exchanged glances.

After a moment's hesitation, it was Leonard who spoke up. "Feeling out whether a Supreme-rank entity is overly dangerous requires greater prudence."

Feige nodded in agreement. "Moreover, what's most important currently is to resolve the Magic Ovum Mirror. Now that Morphey is dead, Scarlet Cult would be in scattered disarray. Remaining White Wolf remnants would find it difficult to continue and now would be the best time to pursue them."

"Firstly, Secret Rite Tower and Joseph's report are that it was Morphey who first made her move and Doris counterattacked. Till now, the bookstore has never voluntarily shown any aggression.

"And through Scarlet Cult's offensive, we are able to at least determine that the bookstore isn't on their side. It's just a pity that Doris didn't leave any survivors, otherwise we would be able to get a better picture of this Scarlet Cult operation.

"The matter of the Magic Ovum Mirror is of top priority. Therefore, getting Ackerman to feel out the bookstore is a good choice, even though I have to admit that we are making use of him."

Andrew chimed in, "We have to determine the bookstore owner's modus operandi and approximate intent. This isn't something that can be just described as 'friendly'. We must be responsible for the millions of citizens in Norzin.

"This incident has to make us reflect on ourselves and what exactly were we doing."

He gazed out to the gloomy curtain of rain beyond the balcony, as if staring at something beyond the thick clouds. "Our Truth Union's importance isn't just to seek truth, but to maintain order. But when an organization becomes an authority and gains excessive power, corruption would stem from within."

Feige and Leonard's hearts skipped a beat, as if vaguely realizing something.

Andrew's hands clutch the balcony railing as he gazed at skeletal remains in the middle courtyard. "The failure of our surveillance network is unquestionable, leading to Scarlet Cult and White Wolf being able to avoid detection. However, the question is... where is the problem?"

The two others immediately stood up.

What the vice-chairman meant was—Were there spies within the Truth Union?!

Andrew sobered up and said with a penetrating gaze, "The public's trust in the Truth Union will take a massive beating if we do not handle this matter well and we might not be able to bear the consequences."
