– Volume 5 Episode 1
Chapter 25. Choi’s Sisters
Jeong Dae-sik raised his eyelids at the sound of a bell ringing somewhere.
I fumbled to pick up my phone and saw that it was still 11am.
Of course, it was late to sleep, but I was very tired because I came home at dawn last night.
Immediately after returning from the dungeon, not only was he swept away by the pouring media attention, he had to rush to the hospital with Choi Hee, and many things happened after that.
Jeong Dae-sik waited for the reporters to withdraw in front of the dungeon and then went back inside.
In order to find the missing people, only the magic stones that came out after killing the boss mobs were secured, and nothing else was saved.
Since he had killed quite a few monsters before killing the Cyclopes, Jeong Dae-sik went into the dungeon again to get it.
Of course, there was no way to find the corpse of a monster because it was immediately after a monster that could be called a super-large species or a super-giant species such as the Cyclopes made a fuss.
However, he could not go back in vain, so Jeong Dae-sik went hunting with his own hands.
Since the dungeon had already been attacked, the monster’s activity was in a low state.
However, because Jeong Dae-sik had the skill to expand attention, he was able to hunt down monsters with it.
In that way, I went out again, filling the subspace.
And I contacted the disguise.
The disguise man who appeared immediately trembled, saying, “Isn’t he a great person?”
I saw Jeong Dae-sik on TV.
Jeong Dae-sik was terrified that his identity was exposed to such an illegal buyer, but he had no choice but to do so.
The disguise wasn’t even threatening Jeong Dae-sik with it, and he gave Jeong Dae-sik a decent price for the monster’s by-products.
That price is a whopping 6 billion!
It was more than enough to make up for the money that was wasted on the search for the missing person last time.
It was only after the balance was refilled that he was able to relax and think about the press conference to be held the next day.
Choi Hee promised a press conference to prevent reckless speculative articles from being published, and since the last disappearance case drew national attention due to Na Dong-il, it was necessary to interview the media at least once.
Unable to rest due to extra hunting in the dungeon, Jeong Dae-sik went straight to the Titan raid.
There, I met an image maker called by Kang Young-hoo.
She, who identified herself as Kim Hye-min, was not a hunter, but an awakened with supernatural powers.
He once worked as a hunter, but he didn’t fit in with combat, so now he is developing and using his abilities in the direction of image making.
Jeong Dae-sik received makeup, not makeup, with hair and clothes as she instructed.
Kim Hye-min called her ability make-up, but it certainly had a different effect from makeup or makeup.
He puts a hint so that the viewer can feel like him and good intentions.
I didn’t know Jeong Dae-sik, but it seemed that quite a few people were using Kim Hye-min’s image-making ability.
He said that not only when the raid commander or several famous hunters went to official positions, but recently even celebrities and politicians like to visit her.
It felt like a scam, but in any case, Jeong Dae-sik also benefited from her abilities.
When he looked in the mirror himself, he saw that where he was going, Sujeonno Jeong Dae-sik was standing there.
It was as if he were watching an Olympic star, he looked trustworthy, courageous and upright.
Although the effect was only one hour, the press conference was shorter than that, so it was sufficient.
Kang Young-hoo, who agreed to go to the press conference together, was also treated the same.
Kang Young-hoo fixed Jeong Dae-sik’s tie and gave him a few words about how to hold a press conference.
Jeong Dae-sik nodded, but honestly, he couldn’t even remember what he had heard.
I was nervous when I thought that I was getting the same attention as when I was in front of the press and just came out of the dungeon.
Jeong Dae-sik walked to the press conference room like a stiff piece of wood.
Most of the words were said by Kang Yeong-hoo, and Jeong Dae-sik mainly answered questions when asked.
I didn’t reply too long because I was afraid I might make a mistake.
I’ve only briefly stated the point.
Doesn’t that seem pretentious? It wasn’t until after the press conference that I became worried about it belatedly.
However, seeing that Kang Young-hoo encouraged him to do well, it seemed that there was no problem.
After the press conference, a meal prepared in advance was served to reporters hosted by Kang Young-hoo.
There was also a modest banquet for the crew members who had participated in the search for the missing.
Of course, the main characters were Jeong Dae-shik, Ki Cheol-min, Kim Toshi-on, Heo Mi-rae, and So Kang-doo, who went on a pre-exploration.
They received a daily salary of 300 million won, as well as gifts from Na Dong-il, Choi Sun-sun, and Choi-hee sisters personally.
Na Dong-il sent a video letter thanking him that he had risen to second place in the popularity rankings due to the last incident, and a figure made of a star crystal stating that the value has been skyrocketing recently.
The figure, about 30cm in size, was made to mimic the appearance of the five members of the expedition team.
It was a rather strange gift, but it was a gift with meaning and value.
What Sister Choi and Choi sent was more practical.
They have sent an enchantment scroll that can enhance the performance of the weapon.
It has a self-healing function, so once it was enchanted, it was possible to restore the state of the damaged weapon just by pouring magic power into it.
Of course, to do the enchantment without failure, you would have to find a skilled blacksmith, but that didn’t matter.
The enchantment scroll with self-healing function was a precious item that could be hit by billions of dollars just by selling it.
After receiving an unexpected gift, Jeong Dae-sik was so happy that he asked him to pour and drink all night with the crew members even after the banquet was over.
Likewise, Sogangdu, who was in a good mood, assured that he would pay for all the drinks, so he enjoyed the night without hesitation.
Because of that wind, he returned home at dawn and fell into bed at sunrise.
Therefore, I had no choice but to think that 11 am was still too early.
“What the hell?”
Daesik Jeong was lost for a while at the strange sound of the alarm.
It wasn’t until I left the living room that I realized where the sound was coming from.
The intercom was crying alone, so Jeong Dae-sik pressed the connect button and spoke.
-Ah, there… Is this Jeong Dae-sik’s house?
-This is the guard’s office, but it’s a bar, a visitor is here…
Jeong Dae-sik tilted his head because no one was going to come.
If it was a rude person such as a salesman or a religious person, he would have already chased them away.
If you look at the connection…
‘Are you a reporter?’
Jeong Dae-sik became a little uncomfortable because he wondered how he knew where he lived.
He decided that his opponent would be a journalist, and immediately put the word of refusal in his mouth.
“I have no one to meet. I will reject all visitors, so please send them back.”
At that, the security guard was startled.
– Come on, wait!
– Choi Hee… Is Choi Hee here?
“Are you Mr. Choi Hee?”
Jeong Dae-sik felt dazed as if he had been hit in the head.
Are you saying that you have already been discharged from the hospital?
If you are discharged from the hospital, you are discharged from the hospital, so why did you come to my house?
Jeong Dae-sik was bewildered, then realized why the guards were not sure what to do.
If a person the size of Choi Hee had come, it would not have been so easy to let him go.
Jeong Dae-sik scratched his head, thinking that he should see her even to relieve the security guard’s embarrassment.
“Okay. Please let me in.”
Jeong Dae-sik hung up the intercom and put on his clothes.
My face was full of mucus, but I didn’t have time to wash my face.
Before long, a red, open-type minicar ran and stopped on the road in front of the house.
In the only two seats, Choi Hee and another person were sitting.
It was none other than the best.
‘To the best? What’s up with all the sisters?’
Jeong Dae-sik hurriedly wiped his face and went out to the front door.
When I opened the door to greet them, the sunlight outside was dazzling.
When Jeong Dae-sik greeted with an unwelcome expression, Choi Hee took off the sunglasses she was wearing on her face and smiled.
“I’m sorry for the sudden attack. I wanted to contact you in advance, but I have to answer the phone.”
“Ah… did you call?”
I was so drunk last night that I didn’t even pay attention to my phone.
Recently, I have received a lot of annoying calls from all reporters, so I did not check properly even if there were missed calls.
As if he had guessed such a situation, Choi Hee did not say more about it.
Instead, he pushed his best back forward, who had been standing quietly like a shadow in the background.
“Well, when I asked, he said he still hasn’t said thank you to you. So I thought it was not polite, so I ran to you.”
“Uh, um… Am I okay?”
“I’m not okay. Seon-ah, I have to say hi.”
Choi was hesitant and shook his head.
And he spoke in a voice that was the size of a mosquito.
“Oh, thank you… for saving my life…”
Jeong Dae-sik smirked and scratched the back of the head.
“No. You’re a teammate in the same raid? It’s only natural that we were on a mission together.”
Not knowing what to do, Choi shook his head.
His face was completely covered by his curly hair that hung down to his waist and heavy horn-rimmed glasses.
Thinking that the gloomy side did not change even if he died and came back to life, Jeong Dae-sik stepped aside.
“It’s not like you’re doing this at the front door… Come inside.”
Jeong Dae-sik sat down on the sofa in the living room and went to the kitchen.
I should have served him a cup of tea, but there was nothing in the cupboard.
Even though it was empty, the refrigerator was the same, so there was nothing but water to take out.
Jeong Dae-sik took the water from the water purifier, gave it to the two women, sat across from them, and said,
“By the way, is it okay to walk around like this already? I heard that the injury is serious.”
At Jeong Dae-sik’s question, Choi Hee shrugged.
“I wish the healer would kill me, well. I still have to eat potions, but I don’t mind just wandering around. It’s okay as long as you don’t use your abilities.”
“is that so.”
After saying hello, I had nothing to say.
There was an awkward silence in the living room, and Jeong Dae-sik pondered whether or not to talk about the weather.
However, Choi Hee, who looked around the house with her mouth shut, suddenly asked a question.
“Are you living here alone?”
“Yes that’s right.”
“I don’t have much of a living.”
“I just moved in. I’m not really at home.”
Jeong Dae-sik realized that Choi Hee was talking nonsense very naturally.
At the same time, I wanted to talk nonsense, but I decided to quit because I didn’t want to be rude.
In fact, Choi Hee is one year older than him, and he is probably the strongest in the world.
