– Volume 1 Episode 14
Everyone was scorched and injured everywhere.
However, he survived the encounter with Cerberus.
He seemed to have forgotten the pain of the injury.
“How the hell did we do it? I thought we were just dying.”
As Seok Woo-won muttered, Won-dil grabbed Jeong Dae-sik.
“Jeong Dae-sik, this person did it! He said he helped us all with his strengthening skills in that situation!”
Then Seok Woo-won nodded as if he understood.
“I think that was the reason why my strength suddenly surged when I was knocked down in one hit… Maybe it was because of my mood that I became stronger than when I received the buffer earlier.”
That’s because he spent close to 100 million won to do good.
But it was impossible to say all of that, so Jeong Dae-sik shrugged his shoulders.
“Because of a crisis situation, all the power I used to breastfeed came out. So, it seems that the strengthening skill worked well.”
“Ha ha ha ha ha…….”
When Seok Woo-won burst into laughter with Kyung-i and Hwan-hee, the other party members all burst into laughter.
It was only then that belatedly realized their respective injuries and moaned or sat down in place.
Then Seok Woo-won took out a potion that looked like an emergency and turned it around.
Since there was only one potion, drinking one drop at a time only relieved the pain.
Still, it was enough to get me going.
“We don’t know who else will appear, so let’s get out of here for now.”
On the way out of Section D, I thought I would run into someone, but no one showed up.
Perhaps he knew that Cerberus was haunted here.
Unsurprisingly, when I went up to the first floor of the dungeon, the hunters could not enter the basement prematurely and were gathered in a crowd.
They saw Jeong Dae-sik and the party members who appeared in a mess and started talking.
“Did Cerberus appear inside?”
“What floor did you go to?”
When Seok Woo-won said that he met Cerberus on the 3rd basement floor, people nodded their heads or kicked their tongues as they spoke.
“The raid that went to the 5th basement level earlier to capture Cerberus was devastating.”
“They said that three people died and the remaining people ran away and dragged them up to the 3rd basement floor.”
“In the end, all the raiders died.”
“But how have you been living?”
“Did Cerberus go somewhere else?”
Everyone didn’t think that the last man who went hunting to the third basement level had defeated Cerberus.
I was just talking, thinking that I had just run away.
Seok Woo-won calmly opened his mouth to such people.
“Cerberus is dead. We defeated it.”
Hearing that, people widened their eyes.
“What? No way!”
“It’s nonsense. Cerberus is a bastard even when veterans come. Aren’t you guys a rookie?”
“Even pretending to look at you doesn’t look like much…”
They thought they were bluffing, and most of them didn’t seem to believe it.
Then Seok Woo-won got angry and said,
“Somehow, you watch the porters come out carrying Cerberus corpses.”
However, the porters who had been recruited in advance did not rush into the dungeon.
It is natural.
Cerberus might be running rampant inside, but he couldn’t resist unless he had two lives.
It was the same no matter how many times Seok Woo-won said that Cerberus was definitely dead.
In the end, Jeong Dae-sik, who could not see the situation, came forward.
“I will lead by myself. The price is three times! I’ll give you three times.”
Some porters were tempted by the word triple.
On the other hand, there were those who shook their heads and left.
Fortunately, there were three or four young porters who were in need of money, so Jeong Dae-sik went back the way he had brought them.
And he showed me the corpse of Cerberus, which had been laid in ancient times.
“Look, aren’t you sure he’s dead?”
“I’ve never seen a Cerberus corpse in a few years as a porter.”
“It’s really big, how do you move it?”
Jeong Dae-sik took the lead and dismantled the Cerberus corpse.
The bones, flesh, and skin were separated, and only those that could be used as money were selected like a ghost and carried on a cart.
The other porters could not help but marvel at his work skills as a hunter.
Everyone was bewildered and asked questions.
“No, aren’t you a Hunter? How can you handle your burden so well?”
“He’s a porter, so he’s doing a good job.”
Jeong Dae-sik shrugged his shoulders at those words.
“Because I was a porter not too long ago.”
“I beg your pardon?”
Among the porters who questioned in surprise, someone pretended to know.
“That’s right! Someone heard that a porter had become an Awakened. The rumor was true…”
When they heard that Jeong Dae-shik was a porter in the past, everyone’s view of him changed.
Complex gazes mixed with jealousy, envy, longing, envy and jealousy.
The gaze was not very comfortable, so Jeong Dae-sik moved the Cerberus corpse without saying any more.
In fact, if you use your inventory, that is, subspace, you could easily move this much by yourself.
There was no need to pay three times the amount of money and labor the porters.
But since I was promoting with other people, I didn’t want to do anything that could cause misunderstanding.
If you put a Cerberus corpse into a subspace, it will disappear completely from your eyes, so it could be misunderstood that Jeong Dae-sik is trying to monopolize the profits by doing some tricks.
Rather, it is better to move with the porter just like everyone else, even at the cost of some inconvenience and damage.
Since all other party members were injured and transferred to the Hunter Specialty Hospital, it was entrusted to Jeong Dae-sik to dispose of the Cerberus corpse.
He handed over the Cerberus carcass to the broker and meticulously struck the price.
He was quick to do this, so he settled a sufficient amount by cutting even the broker’s commission.
‘Let’s see, after deducting these and other incidental expenses and sharing the profits…’
Daesik Jeong took his share more conscientiously, and as a result.
‘… Today’s income alone is 150 million won!’
Is it really like a giant monster on the 5th basement floor?
Since the profit from catching one Cerberus was considerable, Jeong Dae-sik’s income was also huge.
‘Not a month, not a week, not a day… The daily income is 150 million won!’
Jeong Dae-sik deposited the remaining amount to Seok Woo-won, the party leader, and left the dungeon.
On the way home, I stopped by a jjimjilbang to wash myself, and at the restaurant there, I ordered a bowl of seaweed soup.
I was about to slurp it in, but somehow I couldn’t feel it.
‘One hundred and fifty thousand.’
When Cerberus appeared earlier, I wondered what to do.
I felt like I was hesitating because I didn’t want to spend the hard-earned money.
In the end, I spent close to 100 million, but I made another 150 million, so it wasn’t a bad thing in the end.
However, Jeong Dae-sik, who is sensitive to money, felt suspicious.
‘Why did such a huge amount of money go away to raise the magic power by 7 points? Is there something wrong with this calculation?’
With that thought in mind, Jeong Dae-sik hurriedly drank seaweed soup.
And he went home to talk with entropy.
Chapter 5. Dilemma
As soon as we arrived at the inn, Dae-sik Jeong summoned entropy.
“I have a question for you.”
“I’m going to have to say it clearly without misjudgment to give you an honest answer. It’s about the ability I bought earlier.”
“Yeah. Why is that amount equal to 100 million won? Oh, the situation was urgent, so I just skipped it, but the calculation is wrong!”
The price increases by 1 million won for every 1 point purchase.
Regardless of the type, it was unconditional, 1 million won per point.
So, the amount required to raise the number to 25 by adding 7 points with 18 horsepower had to be 84 million won.
But more money was spent, so I wondered what was going on.
To be honest, I doubted that he was trying to rip off the confusion.
Jeong Dae-sik looked at entropy with fluke eyes and waited for what he had to say.
If there was even the slightest doubt, I was going to ask right away, but what is this?
Entropy spoke with a very dignified attitude.
“Why? My calculations say it doesn’t cost that much!”
“Hey, I tend to be a bit ignorant, but I’m not sloppy when it comes to things that cost tens of thousands of won. To deceive…”
“What do you mean by that? Seol, I hope…”
A bad feeling ran through his head, and Jeong Dae-sik said with contemplation.
“Isn’t the price going up any further?”
Like it or not, Entropy said calmly.
Jeong Dae-sik exclaimed in shock.
“Then you mean that you calculated by adding 2 million won to 1 point of magic?”
“What else does that mean?”
“Now, wait a minute. So, from now on, 23 million won, 26 million won, 29 million won… You mean going up like this?”
In an instant, the calculator ran through Jeong Dae-sik’s head.
After that, entropy was right.
Of course, there was no response such as ‘Ah, that’s it!’
Far from agreeing, there was no absurdity, so I was stunned and my nose was stuffed.
“…Then 30 million won will be added to 4 million won each…”
Entropy, who said that, seemed to be suing him somehow.
It wasn’t just the feeling.
It was just the nuance of replying that it is the correct answer.
Even if the appearance is just a speech bubble, that guy called Entropy must have had feelings!
Jeong Dae-sik was angry.
“Wow, this nonsense…! What’s so expensive? Multi-level is better than this! Isn’t this a complete scammer?”
Seeing Jeong Dae-sik shouting at a whale, Entropy continued to speak arrogantly.
“What is that? Since you were chosen by that god, it’s natural to spend so much money, right?”
“That’s what the scammers say! You’re chosen, you’re special, you only have this chance, it’s just for you… You deceive people with these kind of mouth-to-mouth words! What’s the difference between those scammers?”
Unlike Jeong Dae-sik, who spits his saliva, Entropy continued to speak calmly.
“Hey, I’m a man whose money is as important as my life!”
Jeong Dae-sik, who had been screaming, immediately vomited.
“No, it’s not just me. I’m sure most people in the world are like that. You don’t need family, friends, conscience or morals in front of money! But how can you say that life is more important than money? You’re paying the same price as I did! So don’t tell me to shut up. Of course I can complain and complain about my situation!”
