– Volume 5 Episode 3
He said that he would sell it for 4.5 billion first because he was worried that he would really ask for 4 billion won.
Even Ki Cheol-min thought that it would be enough, so he paid 4.5 billion won for the sword, scabbard, and belt.
Mr. Kim cursed that he was not a complete thief, but the two left the blacksmith’s without regard for it.
“Thanks to you, I bought a good weapon. I’ve only been indebted to you from the beginning.”
“No, it’s not a big deal, what?”
Ki Cheol-min said as he saw Jeong Dae-sik shrugging his shoulders.
“Leave the enchantment problem to me. I’ll ask Choi where I can go.”
“Um, no. I’m fine.”
“It’s a bit wasteful to use the enchantment scroll on the weapon I have now.”
“Isn’t that an A-class weapon? If you add the self-healing function, it becomes AA-class, so what’s wrong with it?”
I couldn’t say that it was because it was borrowed from the national treasury, and Jeong Dae-sik moderately said that he would think about it if he had a better weapon.
Ki Chul-min told him to take care of it, and the two broke up not long after.
Jeong Dae-sik thought as he walked consciously of the scroll he had put in his arms.
‘Come to think of it, none of the weapons I have are really mine.’
Items borrowed from the national treasury could be freely used as long as Jeong Dae-sik did not change his/her nationality or died.
However, it was not Jeong Dae-sik’s property.
‘Should I buy a new weapon for myself? Hmm… that’s a bit of a waste of money.’
Jeong Dae-sik shook his head as he recalled the SS-level items in the national treasury.
‘It’s too hard to be smart, but I don’t have the money to even buy a weapon. At 5 billion, that’s enough money to enhance your skills five times. Rather, how can there be no way to make the items in the national treasury mine?’
Jeong Dae-sik moved to the house with the same ingenuity as a robber.
Jeong Dae-sik was on his way home when he heard the phone ringing.
When I looked at the screen, it was Choi Hee.
‘It’s all right. I’ll have to check if Ki Chul-min’s guess is true.’
Jeong Dae-sik pressed the call button and opened his mouth.
– Jeong Dae-sik? Where are you now?
“Are you on your way home?”
– That’s fine. I’m on my way there too, so I’ll see you there.
The phone was cut off and Jeong Dae-sik was taken aback.
‘No, my house isn’t a coffee shop, so why are you meeting there?’
When we arrived in front of the house, Choi Hee’s cute mini car was already parked.
Jung Dae-sik parked the car, thinking, “I’ve never given permission to enter the housing complex.”
Then, Choi Hee, who was standing obliquely in front of the front door, straightened her posture and took off her stylish sunglasses.
Taking off a pair of sunglasses was like a pictorial.
Jeong Dae-sik asked a question, thinking that she was definitely a woman who could be a painting.
“How did you get in?”
Choi Hee shrugged.
“I’ve been issued a temporary pass. I don’t live here, but I’m an investor in the Titan Raid. It’s not unusual to go into and out of the Titan Raid’s house.”
“It is, though.”
Daesik Jeong and Hee Choi went into his house and sat down.
The hospitality that had been neglected yesterday could not be said to be grand today.
Seeing Jeong Dae-sik handing out a glass of water, Choi Hee said.
“The water purifier in my house comes with ice cubes, ground ice, coffee, and carbonated water.”
“Is that so? It’s good.”
“So, why don’t you come into my house? If I move in, I can borrow the weapons and equipment I have and use it as I want, isn’t it?”
If it were an item that Choi Hee had, the level would have been considerable.
For a moment, I felt like I was being crushed, but Jeong Dae-sik managed to come to his senses and said.
“Why do you keep telling me to move in? Not something like being a benefactor. The real reason.”
At Jeong Dae-sik’s question, Choi Hee smiled.
“You already know?”
“After all, are you doing this because you want to find a way to become an all-in-one?”
Jeong Dae-sik felt a sense of disappointment as he asked such a question.
And he immediately blamed himself for that.
‘No, of course he wanted to dig out my secrets, so he asked me to live with him! What were you thinking?’
Jeong Dae-sik realized that he was holding out hope without even realizing it, and he became very embarrassed.
Ungamsaengshim, how can you dare to express such greed for Choi Hee?
Jeong Dae-sik kicked his tongue out saying that he was going to wear a blanket instead of sleeping.
Of course, outwardly, he didn’t show that feeling at all.
Unaware of Jeong Dae-sik’s condition, Choi Hee said seriously.
“Your god promised you all-in-one, but that’s the result, isn’t it?”
“God didn’t make you all-in-one from the beginning. When you first awakened, you only had one ability in the reinforcement system. The other two abilities bloomed one by one.”
“Yeah… it is.”
“Then there must be some way.”
“Fundamentally, there is only one thing God promises to the Awakened. Kill the beings of the other world, and then you will become stronger… It means that you can acquire power by killing monsters. Then you too. Isn’t it the same?”
“Does it take a course to become an all-in-one?”
“That’s right. Other than that, there’s no way I’d have promised an all-in-one. They’d just have made it an all-in-one from the start.”
It wasn’t very wrong.
Because Jeong Dae-sik was acquiring his abilities one by one through the method of Hyeon-Jil.
However, this method was only applicable to Jeong Dae-sik and was impossible for Choi Hee.
She answered that she had been chosen by God because she wanted to teach him that fact, even in a detour, but her tenacity was greater than I expected.
Jeong Dae-sik said with a feeling of embarrassment.
“Why did God have to pick me and choose me? If anyone could do it, there would be no need for it.”
“Of course I haven’t heard anything from God about an all-in-one. So you might think that trying to be an all-in-one is impossible. But even if it’s impossible, it would be a challenge. Because I can’t find a way to become stronger.”
At what Choi Hee said, Jeong Dae-sik asked what he had been puzzled about for a long time.
“Mr. Choi Hee is already strong enough to overflow with a garage, right? What are you going to do when you become stronger there?”
“What are you doing…? Of course…”
Choi Hee was a little confused.
In the eyes of Jeong Dae-sik, even she herself did not seem to know exactly why she had to be stronger than she is now.
However, it wasn’t long before Choi Hee gave a very simple and clear answer.
“Because I want to become stronger!”
Jeong Dae-sik clasped his forehead.
All of Ki Chul-min’s assumptions were correct.
Her true purpose for keeping Jeong Dae-sik close, and the reason for wanting to become stronger than she is now, were all just what he said.
‘How does Ki Cheol-min know what Choi-hee is thinking so well? Is it because he is of the same race?’
Ki Chul-min said that becoming strong in itself can be an end rather than a means.
And Choi Hee, who just wanted to get stronger and wanted to find a way to become an all-in-one, seemed to fit that case.
‘What the hell, how did the writers of Hunters come and eat…’
Jung Dae-sik, who was also a hunter and had such thoughts, wrote Oh Man-sang and said:
“Well, that’s good. That’s Choi Hee’s taste, so I’ll say it. But there’s no reason for me to fit in there, right?”
Choi Hee rolled her eyes.
“Why… Choi Hee-san, to find a way to become an all-in-one, but what advantage is there for me to help?”
Hearing what Jeong Dae-sik was saying, Choi Hee arrogantly raised her chin and said.
“You seem to have no thoughts about me enough to sell my autograph for only 100 million won? I can’t count the men who don’t know what to do because they want to chat with me. Shall I say it more like a hunter? One hunt with me… … No, there are a lot of people who want to watch me hunting from a distance. But there is no advantage?”
There was nothing wrong with what Choi Hee said.
Due to the burden of keeping everything about Democritus a secret, and the fact that he could never teach him how to become an all-in-one, he refused unconditionally.
However, there was nothing wrong with making connections with Choi Hee.
It was beneficial in some way.
Jeong Dae-sik organized his thoughts and said.
“Okay. But I also can’t move.”
Choi Hee snorted and shook her body.
For a moment, my head went blank.
She was a woman of a level enough to wield great power even with such obvious aegyo.
Jeong Dae-sik said, holding onto his confused mind.
“Unlike Choi Hee, I’m a common-sense person… I don’t want to be misunderstood because I’m not with Choi Hee.”
“So, is it okay if we become friends like that? Let’s date! Or get married!”
There may also be a lack of common sense.
There seemed to be nothing in sight because I thought maybe I could find a way to be an all-in-one.
Jeong Dae-sik continued, trying not to get caught up in Choi-hee’s pace.
“If you don’t have to do that, I’ll help you if it’s an all-in-one.”
Choi Hee snorted.
“How many ways are you? Strictly speaking, you don’t even know how to become an all-in-one, do you?”
Jeong Dae-sik was speechless. It was no exaggeration to say that he didn’t know how to become an all-in-one, since he couldn’t say that he was going to buy the power by paying money.
Choi Hee pointed out that point.
She crossed her arms and sighed.
“Unless you don’t know how to do it, I have no choice but to observe you and find a way myself, right?”
“So, did you say something like moving in to stay close? Wouldn’t it be better to join the Titan raid and become a partner? Since you’re already an investor, there doesn’t seem to be any difficulty.”
Choi Hee frowned.
“It can’t be.”
“I have some circumstances.”
Jeong Dae-sik waited for an explanation, but Choi Hee did not say anything.
Jeong Dae-sik said while raising his hands in a flash.
“Anyway, I don’t see any reason why I have to help Choi-hee. I can’t make such a request since Choi-hee already owes me. It’s good to find a way to be an all-in-one. I’m willing to help with that. But That’s it. As you said, I don’t know how to do it, so find it on your own.”
Seeing Jeong Dae-sik drawing the line, Choi Hee clicked his tongue. Apparently, she was confident in her own charm.
He seemed to think that if he joked about dating or getting married, Jeong Dae-sik would come out of nowhere.
It was clear that he decided that it would be easier to cook Jeong Dae-sik and uncover his secrets rather than maintaining a public relationship.
In fact, if Choi Hee had been determined and acted, it might have passed. She tells her sister, but she was a woman who could control a man’s breath with a single smile.
