– Volume 5 Episode 22
They were watching the scene unfolding in the center of the training ground in astonishment.
Jeong Dae-sik also opened his mouth wide.
Obviously, Ki Chul-min’s attack hit Kim Tae-hee’s body.
By now my chest was bleeding or I had to do something.
But Kim Tae-hee was fine.
What didn’t look right was her workout clothes.
The front sock was cracked and had lost its function as a garment.
However, there were no scars on the white chest that was exposed inside the clothes.
Jeong Dae-sik’s gaze soon returned to Ki Cheol-min.
His appearance was… horrifying.
Ki Cheol-min looked like an iron core protruding from a ball was embedded in various parts of his body.
Even when fighting monsters, I thought I wouldn’t be able to do something like that.
Nevertheless, Ki Chul-min was still standing in his place.
He was guarding his mind with his teeth clenched.
Kim Tae-hee, who stood looking at Ki Cheol-min, had a pale face.
Perhaps she did not intend to make Ki Chul-min like that.
Because he must have thought that Ki Cheol-min would withdraw his sword and block his attack.
However, Ki Chul-min chose to attack rather than defend.
It wasn’t difficult to guess why.
Ki Cheol-min’s magical power was not restored.
Considering the amount filled with magic recovery potions, it would have been enough to use only one skill.
So, if he missed the opportunity, he decided that he could not attack again, and he did something reckless.
Kim Tae-hee spoke in a voice that suppressed her emotions.
Ki Chul-min licked his lips.
And after one bloody cough, he answered.
“No… I don’t like it.”
Kang Yeong-hoo, who had not seen him, got up from his seat and shouted.
“This showdown is over!”
Then Ki Chul-min raised his voice.
“No, we can fight!”
‘That idiot… isn’t he crazy?’
Ki Cheol-min was in a state where he had to collapse right now.
He may have avoided the vital point thanks to the armor, but the iron core was embedded throughout his body.
He even had an iron core stuck to his cheek, so he would have been dead if he had been stingy.
Of course, just having an iron core on his cheek was terrifying.
Every time Ki Chul-min spoke, it moved, so it was even more so.
Ki Cheol-min insisted on continuing to fight, but it was not possible.
He eventually vomited a sip of blood.
Even so, it was amazing to stand still and not give in to the outcome until the end.
In the end, it was the moment when referee Kang Yeong-hoo was going to decide the winner.
Suddenly, Kim Tae-hee put down the mortar and expressed her intention to surrender.
Ki Chul-min widened her eyes, and she said with a bitter smile.
“I don’t know anything else, but I lost in my tenacity to join the Fenrir unit.”
Hearing those words, Ki Chul-min fainted and fainted.
Kang Young-hoo hurriedly shouted.
“Take down the shield! Healer!”
As soon as Yeo Soo-hee cleared the shield, Healer and Pa Yong-dae and other one-eyed troops rushed out.
They removed the iron core from the fallen body of Ki Cheol-min and poured a healing potion.
Healer also wore heels soon.
Among the colleagues surrounding Ki Chul-min, there was even the best.
After finding her, Jeong Dae-sik felt a little strange.
I wondered if it was because of the magic war that Choi gave me, but it didn’t seem like it was just that.
In front of him, the smile she had seen before was glimmering.
‘This is not the time to think like this!’
Jeong Dae-sik shook his head inwardly, shaking off his best thoughts.
Then I watched as Ki Cheol-min was carried out.
In the midst of the noise in the hall, Kang Yeong-hoo raised a hand to silence them.
Then he saw Taehee Kim coming out of the center of the training ground and said.
“Are you really going to surrender? You’d probably want to join Fenrir’s army as well.”
Kim Tae-hee quietly nodded her head.
“You can’t undo what you say.”
Kang Young-hoo accepted Kim Tae-hee’s declaration of surrender and said:
“The winner of the final selection for Fenrir Troops is Ki Chul-min.
Jeong Dae-sik hurriedly opened his mouth.
When Kang Yeong-hoo was embarrassed and shut his mouth, Jeong Dae-sik bowed his head slightly to apologize to him and said:
“I’m sorry, but I have a question.”
“If possible… Can’t you take Kim Tae-hee to my unit as well?”
Kim Tae-hee’s eyes got bigger and Kang Young-hoo’s eyes got bigger too.
Jeong Dae-sik said quickly.
“I understand that the number of units is left to the character of the unit and the discretion of the unit commander. The Fenrir unit will perform a special mission of dungeon raiding, so there will be no harm in having a large number of unit members. Six people. Even if I add one, I can’t say that there are a lot of people because there are eight people including myself.
Also, here, Mr. Tae-hee Kim took on a solo mission and has been working alone until now, so the situation is different from other members of the crew. Since she has no effect on her existing units, would it not matter if she joins Fenrir’s unit?”
It seemed that Kang Young-hoo couldn’t find any particular reason to oppose Jeong Dae-sik’s words one by one.
He looked into Kim Tae-hee’s face once, and she hesitated a little.
“I-I-I-I’d be happy if you accepted me into the Fenrir Corps.”
“Okay. Then, Ki Chul-min and Kim Tae-hee, I will put them all into my unit.”
Thus, the Fenrir troops were confirmed.
Seo Ji-won from Frankenstein’s unit, and Godok-hwa from Cthulhu’s unit. Song-Geun Kim and Cheol-Min Ki of the One-Eyed Unit, Jae-Woo Lee and Mi-Rae Heo of the Mermaid Unit and Foreign Legion. And Kim Tae-hee and Jeong Dae-sik.
In this way, eight people immediately became the Fenrir unit.
Chapter 30. First Training
“…Formally, it is called the Fenrir Unit and is entrusted with the above duties. And Jeong Dae-sik, an official member of the Titan Raid, is appointed as the unit commander.”
In the midst of applause, Dae-sik Jeong, who stood on the podium, received the official appointment letter from Young-hoo Kang.
When the appointment letter was put on his side, Kang Yeong-hoo engraved a purple seal symbolizing the Fenrir unit on the back of his hand.
It symbolizes howling wolves looking at the full moon, and the red and blue colors show the fact that they are special forces.
The Titans had another special unit, which is the Foreign Legion.
The color of the Foreign Legion was purple with more blue in it, but the Fenrir unit, on the other hand, had a darker red and looked almost purple.
Jeong Dae-sik shook hands with Kang Young-hoo and bowed his head to the Titan raid members gathered in the auditorium.
Then, when he returned to his place, Kang Yeong-hoo called the Fenrir troops one by one, handed them a letter of appointment, and engraved their seals.
It seems that usually only the commander is summoned, so I was able to confirm the expectation that Kang Young-hoo was putting on the Fenrir unit in the way he took care of the unit members separately.
After the inauguration ceremony of the Fenrir unit, a banquet was held to serve as a refreshment.
The atmosphere was not much different from the day when Jeong Dae-sik and Ki Cheol-min had their enlistment ceremony.
Jeong Dae-sik went to the banquet hall and saw the Fenrir troops gathered in one place and felt a sense of emotion.
‘It seems like yesterday that I joined the Titan raid.’
No, to tell the truth, becoming a hunter felt like yesterday.
It must have been almost a year since I became a hunter.
Looking back, it was a time that could never be called long.
But a lot has happened in the meantime, and everything has changed.
I wondered if maybe he himself had changed a bit, but Jeong Dae-shik inwardly shook his head to deny it.
If I had become a fool who cried out only to be strong, I wouldn’t know.
His goal was still to be rich.
Not just rich, rich!
If he became one of the richest people in the world and lived with a skyscraper under his feet, he would not be envious of a god.
‘This is why he was chosen by the god of wealth, greed, and price, not by any other god.’
Jeong Dae-sik put aside unnecessary thoughts and approached the Fenrir troops.
They were still looking at each other awkwardly.
Since they were still in different units, they weren’t very close.
Originally, we should have gathered once before the foundation ceremony, but we couldn’t do it because we were busy hunting.
After the selection for Fenrir troops, Jeong Dae-sik was busy for a while.
He was also busy with Fenrir’s work, such as being assigned an office, stocking the necessary clothes, armour, and equipment, and checking the individual requests of each member, but he was actually more busy making money.
Daesik Jeong confirmed the possibility that he might be able to make others stronger with his sensible ability in a conversation with Entropy the other day.
To determine whether that was true or not, we had to carry on a huge amount of shop upgrades.
The amount of money needed to make the shop to Lv6 is a whopping 100 billion!
It was 100 billion, not 100 billion, not 1 billion, not 10 billion.
It was an astonishing amount indeed.
In order to collect the money, Jeong Dae-shik slept little and chased after him in the dungeon.
In doing so, he continued to improve his status, acquire new skills, and raise his level.
It was only then that he was able to obtain more valuable magic crystals.
Probably, if there was no system to sell magic crystals directly in the store, Dae-Sik Jeong would not have dreamed of raising 100 billion won.
By investing a small amount of the money you just earned, you will survive for a long time with the various abilities you can acquire at the store level 5 level.
However, the urgent need to find a way to share Hyeonjil’s abilities with other people was urgent, so he was rushing to upgrade the shop.
There was also the problem of entropy growth.
As the level of entropy rose, he was giving unparalleled help.
It was quite convenient to link with Jeong Dae-sik to help reconnaissance and to activate skills instead.
What if this entropy could directly use a skill?
It was a step closer to the form of ego weapon Jung Dae-sik wanted.
To upgrade the shop for these two purposes, he went hunting around the country.
In the meantime, how busy must you have been since you had to take care of everything necessary to create the Fenrir Unit?
Thanks to this, I couldn’t find time to spend private time with the crew.
Perhaps the same goes for the crew.
Since Jeong Dae-sik had entrusted each of them with their own work, there would have been no time to build friendships.
For that reason, the atmosphere of the Fenrir troops gathered together was gloomy.
Even Ki Cheol-min, who could have thrown a boney joke or two at Jeong Dae-sik, was quiet.
He didn’t seem to be able to decide how to treat Jeong Dae-sik.
In the meantime, I was comfortable talking, but now the ranks are divided into commanders and crew members.
If he acted like he did before, he could harm the ranks in the unit, so he was not friendly to Jeong Dae-sik and kept an eye on him.
It was the same for Heo Mi-rae, so Jeong Dae-sik opened his mouth thinking that he should make the crew even more friendly.
