I'm Really Not the Demon God's Lackey Chapter 91: Body Temperature of Humans

Just tidy and make records... Rather easy tasks?

The young girl involuntarily shuddered as she glanced at the bookshelves all around.

She was able to sense such a thick, frightening aura from merely lying in the chair. It was unfathomable to imagine what these books, shelves, and even the entire bookstore were.

She didn't even dare shut her eyes now because from what she had seen, that bone-chilling sensation would be even greater the moment she closed her eyes.

At that time, the scene in the darkness would no longer be this quaint and rundown bookstore.

She instinctively didn't want to interact closely with these things every day. Just the thought made her blood run cold.

However, if she didn't agree...

Continuing to face the Truth Union's pursuit would be the best-case scenario. Perhaps she might be fortunate enough to escape from their grasp, but the days that followed would still be filled with uncertainty.

Besides what she eavesdropped back in the laboratory, her knowledge of the outside world was basically zero.

But if she were unable to free herself from this pursuit, then perhaps... her actual life might only persist for an extra few days before coming to an end.

And when thinking more negatively, the girl might not even get to walk out of the bookstore if she chose to decline.

As a homunculus that had just escaped her life inside culture fluid and hadn't yet experienced any complicated situation like this, the young girl's mind was at a loss.

When weighing her considerations, weren't the degree of danger from both sides roughly the same?

So much so that it seemed like staying would be the best choice.

Granted a new identity, provided with shelter. However the price was...

"I won't force you either if you aren't willing, nor will I interfere if you have your own plans.” There's no need to be so uptight.

Lin Jie noticed the girl's nervousness and hesitance. Thus, he stood up and said with a smile, "There's no need to think over it too much for the time being. That can wait till your injuries get better.

"I will still take you in till your injuries are completely healed. After that, the choice to stay or leave will be entirely yours."

He helped the girl up and placed her hands on his shoulders, indicating for her to get on his back.

“Just that a new identity and perhaps the troubles that follow after have to be dealt with by yourself. After all, I am just an ordinary bookstore owner and not a charity worker.”
