Carol left with the gold coins and returned shortly holding a package.
“Wait, what’s in your hand?”
Carol’s waved the item which was wrapped in a printed cloth at me, “Want to know?”
“But, I can’t tell you.” She then proudly hefted her package into the room and slammed the door behind her, locking it on her way in.
…resisting the thoughts of dragging Carol out of the room and viciously beating her up, I knocked on the door instead, “what are you doing?”
“It’s a secret~ just wait there for a little while, you’ll definitely be shocked and kneel before this lady’s genius idea.”
Hopefully, I will really be kneeling before you at that time and not me knocking you into the ground.
With a sigh, I dismissed the idea of breaking into the room. Carol might be very unreliable, but what if she really comes up with some great ideas, everyone can have a flash of brilliance every once in a while, right?

I sit back at the table in the lobby and called out to the waiter, “Give me some more food.”
“Of course,” the waiter immediately dropped what he was doing and ran to the kitchen.
I don’t know if I’m imagining it, but it seems like the waiter is very passionate about serving me. Mhm… that’s one of the many advantages of being cute.
After about two hours, several rounds of food had been served, the sky gradually darkened, but Carol was still locked up in the room.
Impatiently, I walked to the room’s door for the seventh time and roared, “Carol, are you dead in there? Still not ready yet?”
“Well… wait a minute, I’m almost done… don’t worry…”
After another two minutes or so, Carol finally spoke up again, “Okay, you can come in now.”
“Carol, you better not have been doing anything weird, otherwise I’ll…” I opened the door and walked in. I found Carol wearing a crimson dress sitting in front of the dresser with her back.
Perhaps from the sound of me opening the door, Carol jumped up proudly and said, “How is it? Not bad, right? I bought this specifically for tonight’s plan.”
Was the red dress specifically chosen to draw attention? Hmm… if you combine it with Carol’s pretty face, it will indeed have a great appeal to people, especially men. Perhaps it will work wonders in the operation tonight.
“Well… not bad, I didn’t expect this Carol, I guess your head isn’t just for display sometimes.”
“Of course, this lady… wow! Lilith, you called me stupid again!”
“Cough.” I played it off with a dry cough and asked, “But why did it take you two hours to put on clothes?”
“Of course it wasn’t just clothes, hmhm~ The next thing is this lady’s highlight. I one hundred percent guarantee that it will catch the fancy of those slavers.” Carol said before turning around so she could surprise me.
“You did your makeup, right?”
“Wow! Lilith, how did you figure it out in such a short while?” Carol had stiffened before turning her neck a fraction.
Something time consuming that will make you more attractive. If it were a man, I’d have to guess, but since it’s a woman, I can think of no other possibilities besides makeup.
“That’s only natural, who do you think I am?”
“Uuu, I wanted to surprise Lilith.”
I guessed her secret so Carol was saddened, she hung her head and turned around.
“Raise your head, otherwise I won’t be able to see it clearly.”
“Oh.” Carol lifted her head.
After that… it was as if I was brought back to my past life; when I was thirteen years old. The old gentleman and I were squatting at the fence of an elementary school playground, watching a group of youthful kids dancing on stage, dazzling the audience as if they were fairies wrapped in sunshine.
Followed by the gaudy dress and glittering decorations was a smiling face that looked like a monkey’s butt.
“Who are you?”
“It’s me, Carol.” Carol poked her cheek with a finger to make a cute (terrifying) face, and said happily, “Am I pretty now?”
“Nonsense, Carol doesn’t look like this.”
“Wow… I only put on some light makeup and you don’t recognize me anymore, Lilith. Hmhmhm~ you shouldn’t have face blindness.”
“Even if I’m blind, I can recognize what’s human and what’s not.”
“Who’re you calling inhuman!” Carol finally realized what I was saying and angrily shouted with swelling cheeks, “Uwaa, that’s too much, it took me two hours to do this makeup only to be humiliated by Lilith like this!”
“Even if you continue for another two hours, you won’t be able to cover up that you’re a clown from the monkey family!!!”
“Who are you calling a clown from the monkey family! I put so much effort preparing for tonight’s plan so that I’d be captured without fail.”
“Besides, I clearly put the makeup on well,” Carol continued, unconvinced.
“Oh? Can you tell me where your makeup looks good?”
Carol stroked her cheek, revealing a charming (scary) smile, “Don’t you think that this slightly blushy makeup will make me feel demure, and this hazy shyness will arouse a man’s desire to protect?”
“Not a chance.” I pulled Carol’s cheeks out and said, “That much cosmetic powder will only make your face thicker.”
“Ouch… it hurts.”
“Well, let’s get rid of the makeup. It’s getting late, we should head to the preassigned spot.” I released my hand and found that my fingers were also dyed red.
How much makeup did this girl use?
“No.” Carol wrapped her arms around her chest and turned her face to the side, refusing to listen.
“Come on,” I said coldly.
“I won’t go.” Carol remained stubborn and turned farther away.
“If you don’t go, I won’t feed you.”
“Then I won’t eat, and I won’t go either.”
“Looks like I need to get rough.”
I rolled up my sleeves and was ready to force Carol to remove the makeup, but as soon as I caught her, she took the opportunity to flop on the ground to throw a tantrum, “Don’t do it! Don’t do it! Don’t remove the makeup I took two hours to put on, please don’t. ”
As I looked at Carol flailing her limbs on the floor with her eyes closed, a strong sense to switch teammate crossed my mind.
My desire to beat Carol here and now was also incredibly strong.
