– Volume 5 Episode 2
There was a feeling of pressure to stop talking.
“Even so. You can’t even drink a cup of tea.”
“I apologize for the neglect of hospitality.”
Choi Hee suddenly took out her cell phone.
And he sent a message to Jeong Dae-sik.
“If it’s okay, would you like to move here?”
When Jeong Dae-sik checked the message, it was the address.
Choi Hee chin on it and made a loud noise.
“It’s our house. There’s enough room left, so come in today.”
Growing up wives and wives who talk only to tell a stranger to come into their house and live there.
Do you mean you know what that means?
Since Choi Hee is not an ordinary woman, I didn’t even know that ordinary people’s senses were a little off.
Jeong Dae-sik looked at the best, who seemed relatively normal, but she did not intend to stop her sister either.
As he quietly sat with his head bowed, Jeong Dae-sik said while staring at the pitiful ceiling.
“I appreciate the favor, but I can’t.”
“Why not… Is there no reason for me to rent a house from you two or live together?”
At Jeong Dae-sik’s protest, Choi Hee tilted her head.
“Why not? I told you? I’m going to repay the favor.”
“What does this have to do with that…”
“Eunin is living alone in such a lonely place, can’t she just sit still?”
Jeong Dae-sik put one hand on his forehead.
“Grace and something… That’s good, but don’t you have the eyes of the public? Both of you are single and I am, but what will people think if we live together? Especially, Choi Hee is a body that attracts attention from the public. Scandals like that need to be avoided…”
“Then we’re dating, okay?”
Jeong Dae-sik felt like he had been hit in the head again.
It was as if someone had hit the back of the head with all their might.
Seeing Jeong Dae-sik with his mouth wide open in surprise, Choi Hee smiled and said.
“It’s simple. Who would say we’re dating? Oh, would you rather get married?”
“Mr. Choi Hee!”
Jeong Dae-sik was shouting without realizing it, and then he said, “Oops,” and managed to silence his voice.
“Such nonsense… I don’t want to be criticized by former Choi-hee’s fans, do I?”
“Hey, are you afraid of that?”
“Anyway, I will decline. Right now, I have no intention of marrying anyone… I have no desire to date.”
Choi Hee crossed her arms, but this time she did her best.
“What about my brother then?”
“What, you mean you don’t like my sister, now?”
In the blink of an eye, Choi Hee staggered as if she was asking if she dared to reject my brother for your subject, and Jeong Dae-sik stuttered.
He looked so timid when he tried to say no, he was worried that he might get hurt.
Before that, I looked at her in anticipation that Choi would refuse first, but with her head bowed down, Choi Seong-eun muttered in a crawling voice.
“Uh, my sister is so… How can I… I mean, I’m dating Jeong Dae-sik?”
“Huh? What’s wrong with you! How nice and pretty you are! What kind of man in the world hates you?”
To be honest, Choi Seon ran a long way compared to Choi Hee.
Choi Hee had a mysterious look as if it had popped out of an illustration with an arm-to-head bulge.
There are many reasons why she is ranked No.
On the other hand, it was difficult to even think of Choi Sun-eun as being a sister to Choi-hee.
He didn’t even look like Choi Hee, and he looked decidedly overly timid.
With long hair and horn-rimmed glasses, her face is completely covered, and even if she speaks a word, she is passive and cannot be attractive.
I didn’t know whether I was well aware of that fact or not, and I didn’t know what to do with the words of my older sister, who exalted me.
“Hey, stop it… Jeong Dae-sik also exists, but… it’s not true…”
“It’s not true! It’s because he doesn’t know what it is, and once I get to know you properly, I’m completely hooked on that charm…”
Choi Sun-eun’s ears turned red, and he screamed in an instant.
The wind cooled the atmosphere rapidly.
Jeong Dae-sik, who became like a man with shrimp’s back exploding in a whale fight, was restless.
If you want to fight, you go out and fight. Why at my house?
Choi Seon shook his shoulders as if he was about to cry.
Then he jumped up from his seat, bowed his head to Jeong Dae-sik, and walked out of the house.
Choi Hee also got up at the same time and hurriedly said “I’ll see you today” and disappeared.
Jeong Dae-sik, who was left alone, sighed with an absurd feeling.
“What the hell am I?”
It was thanks to Ki Chul-min that Jeong Dae-sik realized the truth of the incident that happened in the morning.
“That’s it, that.”
Ki Cheol-min shrugged at Jeong Dae-sik, who was puzzled.
“I want to keep you by my side and observe.”
“Me? Why? I’m not a rare animal.”
“It’s not a rare animal, but it’s true that it’s a rare awakening. It’s a triple list with all-in-one potential.”
It was then that Jeong Dae-sik remembered what happened with Choi-hee on the day of the enlistment ceremony.
Choi Hee, who was dissatisfied with Jeong Dae-sik at the time, could not readily accept the fact that Jeong Dae-sik could become an all-in-one.
Behind it, there was a desire to become stronger than now.
So, I didn’t know that maybe he was close to Jeong Dae-sik and tried to find a way.
No, obviously it was.
“Yeah, I think you’re right.”
Ki Cheol-min made a disgusting sound when he saw Jeong Dae-sik nodded as if the question had finally been resolved.
“If not for that reason, why would a woman like Choi Hee want to live with you?”
I wanted to say, ‘Where am I…?’, but Ki Chul-min was right.
Courting men would line up outside of Dong-gu, and no matter how much he received favor from his younger sister, would he tell an ordinary (?) man like Jeong Dae-sik to live with him just because of that.
Jeong Dae-sik wiggled his lips, unable to respond.
Seeing that, Ki Cheol-min laughed and said.
“Otherwise, is Choi Hee trying to have a crush on you? Arthur.”
“Or did you pretend you didn’t know and go into that house and live?”
“Ah, that’s a specification. Is it possible to die without even a mouse or a bird?”
Choi Hee’s popularity was absolutely phenomenal.
Just by looking at the sale of her autograph for 1 billion won, it is worth imagining how popular she is.
And, as is often the case with such a popular person, she too had a dangerous stalker and a radical fan base.
Even if you post a single line of malicious comments about Choi Hee on the Internet, your identity will be exposed and you will be pointed at the fingertips.
“That’s right. No matter how beautiful Choi Hee is, she should cherish her life.”
Ki Cheol-min said that and pointed somewhere.
“Oh, it’s all here. Over there.”
The place where they are now is a street in Yongsan.
It was said that it was an electronics store long ago, but when the Monster Break exploded, the entire area collapsed, and now there is no trace of it.
Currently, there were many workshops including a blacksmith’s shop.
The Blacksmith’s Association is also located in the vicinity, so it is a place where the largest number of item makers in Seoul are gathered.
The reason why Jeong Dae-sik and Ki Cheol-min came to this place was because of the enchantment scrolls they had received from Choi Hee and Choi Choi the other day.
Since you need a skilled blacksmith to put it on armor, I was just here because there was a blacksmith that Ki Cheol-min knew.
When Ki Cheol-min went into the blacksmith’s smithy and shouted loudly, a certain figure appeared from within.
The square face and thin eyes gave the impression of a golem.
“Hey, Ki Chul-min. It’s been a while.”
“Uh, haven’t I been here in a while?”
As if they knew each other well, the two talked comfortably.
Ki Chul-min soon introduced Jeong Dae-sik to him.
“This is Jeong Dae-sik. Can I omit the introduction?”
“Cancer, you’re a hot topic these days, aren’t you?”
A man named Mr. Kim smiled and asked for a handshake.
“Nice to meet you. This is Park Young Kim. Feel free to call me Mr. Kim.”
“Yes, nice to meet you. This is Jeong Dae-sik.”
Ki Cheol-min soon revealed the purpose of coming to him.
“I got some precious things. I wondered if I could wear this on my longsword.”
The man who received the scroll from Ki Chul-min widened his eyes as if surprised.
“Uh, isn’t this self-healing?”
“Where the hell did you get it? It’s not usually a precious thing. Besides, if it’s polished in the form of a scroll like this, wouldn’t the price be huge?”
“I was blessed because I lived a good life.”
Kim didn’t even show a nonsensical reaction to Ki Chul-min’s voice.
I said just turning the scroll back.
“Unfortunately, this is not something we can handle in our blacksmith’s shop.”
“Really? Why do you look weak? Are you afraid that the enchantment will fail?”
“To be honest, yes. It’s not a normal price, but it’s hard to ruin it.”
“Then where are you going?”
“You have to be at least a craftsman.”
“Ugh… I don’t have the money to hire a craftsman. Besides, it takes at least several months to entrust things to a craftsman, doesn’t it?”
Kim immediately gave advice.
“If you don’t know who gave this to you, ask them. If you can give me a scroll like this, a craftsman like that would know. Ask for a leg.”
“And one more thing. It’s a bit wasteful to wear something like this on your cheap iron sword. If you earn money, change your weapon according to your level.”
“Even so, the time has come to change…”
Seeing Ki Cheol-min hesitated, Kim smiled.
“I have some good stuff. Someone made a custom order and didn’t go looking for it.”
“Did you bring it out to sell it?”
“Because it’s perfect for you.”
Ki Cheol-min grumbled, but asked to show the weapon.
What Kim brought out was a long sword made of compose metal.
“Silver iron and golden titanium contain a small amount of mithril and dragon’s blood. Purifying stone is embedded in pommel, so it is effective against undead types. It has curse resistance. It has a good balance and light weight. look.”
“Hmm, price does matter. How much is it?”
Kim spread out five fingers.
Ki Chul-min was terrified.
“It’s cheap enough for something like this.”
“Even so. It’s too expensive!”
“Then how about 4.7 billion?”
Ki Cheol-min showed a very conflicted look.
I wanted to have it, but the price seemed to be burdensome.
Jeong Dae-sik was next to him and moderately eased his worries.
“About 4.5 billion, including the scabbard and belt.”
Seeing Jeong Dae-sik meddling, Mr. Kim said in a nonsensical way.
“About 4.7 billion has already been greatly reduced. To put out a sheath and a belt there. It doesn’t make sense.”
Jeong Dae-sik pointed it out.
“You just said it with your mouth? It’s something someone else made to order. Then, wouldn’t you have received the material cost and down payment from that person anyway? Maybe you couldn’t pay the balance or for some reason, you couldn’t find the sword. To be honest. In other words, it is not a loss even if you sell it for the remaining price, right?
No, it’s a profit because the labor cost would have been hit. If that’s the case, isn’t 4.5 billion too expensive? I can only get 4 billion. It would be rare to find someone who could take something like this. Hunters who use long swords are limited. If Ki Cheol-min doesn’t buy it, you will unconditionally cut your hand.”
Jeong Dae-sik’s reckless price cuts made Kim terrified.
