Using the artifact and some... aphrodisiac?

Chapter 39

First, he might have to create a strong disturbance or distraction large enough to divert the guards' attention for a short duration of time and utilize that moment to reach Nadia.

After that, he could give the essence to her and return back and wait for the benefits.

Although he knew that the Mystic Purge Clan must also have their own Honorable Stars Essence made by the best alchemists in the clan.

But he knew that Nadia would not be receiving them anytime soon.

In the novel, Ophelia was an eccentric woman who followed her own ideologies and never respected the common sense of the world... and to her, Nadia was the most important person in the world.

Not as a daughter, but as a tool, apparently. She was obsessed with the idea of creating the perfect being, the perfect exorcist to ever exist.

And Nadia so far was the one among her other children who had the potential to reach that stage, so she was very careful with every aspect of her daughter's growth.

Oliver believed that his mother did not know that he had secretly fed Nadia a body-strengthening elixir or else he wouldn't be in his courtyard chilling but instead somewhere dark...

He shuddered, not daring to imagine the atrocities Ophelia had committed in the novel to achieve her goals.

The guards and tight security would definitely pose a huge problem; he knew of their strength.

They were way above an average exorcist in the world in skills.

In such situations, usually typical novel protagonists would be aware of secret passageways or something similar to evade the guards, but he was not in such a situation.

Using common sense, will a novel ever include the routes and layouts of a clan that the protagonist didn't even belong to? And let's assume even if there was such a route or layout mentioned, would a normal reader ever bother with memorizing that?

No, of course not if you are a normal reader; most of the normal readers would usually skip through such content.

And Oliver was the same; there was no mention of any routes or layouts of the Mystic Purge Clan in the novel, and not only that, even if there was, he had most likely skipped that part when he was a reader.

So, even if there was a hidden path right below his courtyard leading directly to the central area, he would never know!

This was the reality as well!

The world was not always run by clichés; he was facing harsh situations over in his new life.

No matter, everything was connected.

He had already made a plan to slip through...

He just needed the materials for the distraction.

Afterward, he visited the clan market once again and purchased some stuff from different shops. Although the thing he purchased was the same, since he was buying in mass, he had to make sure to purchase from different shops at a good distance from each other.

In the worst case, if everything crashed, he could at least try to make sure that he won't be traced back if he bought things like this.

Not to mention, he was also wearing a cap to hide his hair color as well.

Returning to his courtyard, he looked at the huge boxes of items. It was some thick smoke bombs and concentrated aphrodisiac that were enough to make even elephants unstable.

He was going to use them to deter the guards, at least for a short duration. He knew these smoke capsules might not work for long against the guards, so he had especially purchased the aphrodisiac.

The best way to attack an exorcist with esper as a common person or a person with lesser esper was to attack their mental state or make use of their emotions or urges.

While he doubted that all of them would fall for it, it was enough; he could do well with that.

"Phew, I am ready."

He was slightly nervous for the stunt he was about to pull; never in his life had he expected that he would be doing something like this.

Even in his previous life, he was a normal boy that rarely got into troubles with others, much less pulled any serious pranks.

So, this was going to be a new experience for him.

With that, he picked up the syringe and left the courtyard, not forgetting to leave some food for the sleeping cat.

He knew the clan guardian would come in his use sooner or later, but probably now was not the time.

"And it's done!" He said wiping sweat off his forehead.

Oliver set the capsules at different spots and arranged them in a specific way.

He made sure that it was close to the guards stationed to the central area.

"This should release the smoke and aphrodisiac together at the same time in around 20 minutes as the stick burns fully. With this, nothing will be left behind once the smoke capsule activates."

He thought to himself as he quickly went to the opposite side of the entrance, far away from this arrangement. He wouldn't want to get caught up in smoke mixed with concentrated aphrodisiac.

He secretly apologized to the oblivious guards in his mind.

And then he finally took it out.

A light-cream-colored cloak, a cloak that looked like a normal cloak a traveler would wear on their journey.

But this was actually an artifact!

At that time while at Jenna's secret room, he had ultimately chosen the [Wrap of Quantum Darkness].

An artifact that let him conceal his entire presence by letting the owner manipulate the element of darkness to conceal presence but use depends on the mastery of the owner.

For Oliver, this was the best choice indeed.

If one can remember, he had the [Cosmic Void Gaze] and its first ability was [Dominion over Cosmic Voids.]

It provides control over not only darkness but the vast void between cosmos. Superior form of the darkness element—Void.

So naturally, the effect he would have on this artifact which utilized the darkness element would be amplified a lot considering he could directly use void element to...
