– Volume 1 Episode 17
His observation skills were truly amazing.
‘It is worthwhile to spend money.’
Jeong Dae-shik hummed and stared at the Hell Beast who was in the midst of confrontation with them.
It gurgled and vomited flames, but was tied to a wire and couldn’t move.
Above his head, something he had never seen before opened his eyes.
It was like displaying the status of a game.
It was possible to check how many lives were left in real time.
Not only that, concentrating the consciousness allowed us to see more details.
The description of the monster, as well as its weaknesses and strategies, can be checked, so the only word that came out was that it was a complete jackpot.
‘How can such a good skill cost only 10 million won? Even including the cost of rehabilitating the spirit world, it’s 20 million won! Cheap, cheap!’
Jeong Dae-shik shouted with excitement and sprinkling Ganghwa.
“Not long left! I’m going to collapse soon!”
As soon as those words were finished, the Wandil’s attacks were focused on the forehead of the Hell Beast.
Soon, the life force of the Fel Beasts fell rapidly, and eventually it was completely exhausted.
Then, the status indicator floating above the hellbeast’s head disappeared.
At the same time, the Hell Beast let out a long cry and fell to the floor.
“Ugh, it’s over!”
While everyone exhaled a sigh of relief and cheers, Seok Woo-won did not forget to praise Jeong Dae-sik.
“Okay, that’s amazing! The buff is superior! The feeling I felt last time wasn’t just an illusion!”
At the same time, the other party members could not help but admire.
“Every time you receive a full reinforcement, the attacks come together… Wasn’t that a joke?”
“Really kills! Best, admit it!”
Everyone raised their thumbs up and raised Jeong Dae-sik to the point of being a little embarrassed.
Jeong Dae-sik scratched his chin and said, “Let’s call a porter.”
Seok Woo-won, who nodded at those words, urged the rearrangement.
“Dress in a burnt area and tell me if anyone is injured. I’ll give you a potion. Take a break and move on. After you get out of this area and have a light meal, spray fire resistance with a scroll and let’s hunt again. Everyone, okay?”
“It’s still lively!”
“Are you going to make a lot of money today?”
Everyone giggled happily, cleaned up the situation and moved on.
And we took a break and ate in a relatively safe passage.
Then they set off to find their next prey.
Even while walking in search of the dangerous Hell Beast, the party members continued to chat.
It was fun to reflect on the hunt just before.
“Hell Beast, isn’t it amazing to open your mouth?”
“I did something or something because it spews fire from my body, but nothing happened?”
“If you have fire resistance, it’s good enough to hunt.”
“But when everyone said he was a hell beast, they trembled.”
“I guess it’s because I’m afraid of levers.”
“No, that’s how strong we are. It’s thanks to Daesik Jeong’s buff, huh.”
Everyone was talking like that, so Seok Woo-won frowned and warned.
“Shut up. Now we’re hunting for prey. We’re not withdrawing. Calm down!”
At his words, the crowd became quiet, and the party moved into silence.
After that, the party entered Section F.
As the terrain is rather high and low, I was walking carefully under my feet, and Seok Woo-won, who was going ahead, raised his hand.
At that hand signal, they all stopped and held their breath, and he pointed downwards.
A certain hellish beast was crouching there.
All in all, the location was perfect.
It was a fairly effective preemptive attack.
When dealing with monsters, a preemptive attack was very important.
If the preemptive attack succeeded, it was safe to say that half of the hunt was over, so the dealers loaded their weapons all at once without any command.
If Seok Woo-won’s instructions were given, he would immediately launch a preemptive attack.
Jeong Dae-shik also prepared an automatic rifle.
And while aiming at the Hell Beast, I made an observation without thinking.
It’s a skill that I’ve only recently acquired, so I opened the detailed information out of curiosity.
Then his eyes lit up.
Seok Woo-won tried to lower the hand he was holding above his head.
Jeong Dae-sik raised his voice without realizing it.
“Wait a minute!”
At those words, the other party members got fed up and lowered their bodies.
Seok Woo-won was also startled and grabbed him.
Then, forcing him to lie down, revealing his teeth, and whispering.
“What are you doing! There’s no point in a preemptive strike if he notices!”
Jeong Dae-sik said, putting away his hand pressing down on the nape of his neck.
“You can’t attack.”
“What are you talking about?”
“You just have to pass.”
“Why leave such a good opportunity behind…”
“That guy is a female, if you do something wrong, you’ll all die!”
Seok Woo-won stopped at Jeong Dae-sik’s words.
He soon frowned and said.
“How do you know that?”
Jeong Dae-sik was speechless at his question.
The Hell Beast was not able to distinguish male and female at all.
Thanks to you, I had no words to describe it.
No plausible excuses could come up, so Jeong Dae-sik insisted recklessly.
“I just know.”
“Don’t give a rough answer, explain it properly!”
“I have no words to explain! But it’s clear, that’s a female. You just have to get through it! You’ll regret it if you attack. I assure you.”
“… On what basis do you believe that statement and miss out on this great opportunity?”
“There’s no need to preemptively attack. If you’re a hellbeast, you can hunt as many as you want. So just pass by. Trust me and do that. I don’t want to die in a place like this.”
Hearing what Jeong Dae-sik had to say revealing his teeth, Seok Woo-won messed up his hair.
“Ha, I’m going crazy.”
The party members who watched the two of them wrestle looked at each other.
Then, thinking that the time had passed, Seok Woo-won gave the order to retreat.
“Jung Dae-sik, there is no bottom and no end, but for now, I will trust you. Back down.”
Careful, the party members held their breath and escaped from the place so that the hellbeast could not notice.
Even though I passed one hell beast because of Jeong Dae-sik, there was another hell beast.
Thanks to Jeong Dae-sik, the Hell Beast was easily defeated, and another one appeared one after another.
A rather dangerous situation occurred, but as a result, I was able to catch three hellish beasts and withdraw.
As a result, the total income earned was 350 million won!
The amount Jeong Dae-sik was settled was 105 million won.
It was quite a lot for the money he earned at one time of hunting.
It was a huge amount considering that it wasn’t as dangerous as the last time we caught Cerberus.
Jeong Dae-sik, who checked the deposit details, said to Seok Woo-won, who said hello, that he did a good job.
“…It’s okay if it’s not 30%. I just sent one hellish beast because of me today.”
To be honest, I had no intention of taking my share away.
I thought it was obvious that Seok Woo-won would say that he was the one who said it, so it was a polite thing to say.
Unsurprisingly, Seok Woo-won burst into laughter when he saw Jeong Dae-sik who was thinking about himself.
“It doesn’t have to be. Even if I missed a Fel Beast, it didn’t matter in the end. In a way, we might all owe you our lives. If he really was a female.”
When he said that he could take all 30% of the money, Jeong Dae-sik forcibly swallowed the leaking laughter.
Then, after hearing Seok Woo-won’s words one after another, I was terrified.
“I don’t know how you figured out that the Fel Beast was a female, but you probably didn’t say anything nonsense in that situation.”
“…Thank you for trusting me.”
“If we are to continue to be together in the future, shouldn’t we have this level of trust?”
Seok Woo-won patted Jeong Dae-sik on the shoulder and said that he would see each other again.
However, the feelings left behind by Jeong Dae-sik were completely different from his intentions.
‘I’m embarrassed because there is no way to talk about the observation skill.’
He went to the bank and cleared his account.
Then I went to eat and I fell into thoughts.
‘There is no guarantee that such a situation will not happen in the future.’
I didn’t know if it would be better to say that I am a mentally powerful person.
If you tell me that you have two abilities, you could be rewarded more.
But no matter how much I thought about it, other people thought it was strange.
Let’s say that even though he had a short career as a hunter, he had skills beyond 7th grade.
As long as you can handle two positions, one deal and buffer, you can somehow get past it.
That’s because it stems from his ability to strengthen.
However, it was too much to say that he had mental abilities.
‘If it’s someone you don’t know, it’s better. In the case of Seok Woo-won, I clearly know that my ability is Ganghwa. If you tell me that you even have psychic abilities here, I’m sure you’ll be very surprised. I don’t know if he’ll be happy because he sees me in a good way, but in the corner of his heart he’ll think it’s weird. It would be strange even if he had acquired a new mental ability, and it would be strange if he had hidden that ability.’
As a result, he had to not be with Seok Woo-won in order to fully show his abilities.
Each time, he had to find a new mak-gong, or rather hide his own abilities by playing solo.
‘Still, it’s hard to ignore the fact that I’m giving my share a lot.’
After thinking for a while, Jeong Dae-sik made a decision.
‘Yeah, in the future, even if there is a similar situation in the future, let’s not say anything hasty. It’s better to break the colic than to live with other people’s resentment. And although I was going to reject it anyway, I have to turn down Seok Woo-won’s offer to join the raid. I’m only going with you while I give you 30% of my share.’
With that in mind, the next time Seok Woo-won received an offer to hunt, he did not hesitate.
He agreed without hesitation, and from then on, Jung Dae-sik’s participation in his hunting became natural.
Seok Woo-won spent the schedule without asking whether he would go or not, and Jeong Dae-sik dared to go, but without a word, he went to the gathering place and went hunting together.
Hunting with Seok Woo-won’s party was quite stable.
Seok Woo-won was a conservative, and that fit perfectly with Jeong Dae-sik’s standards.
No matter how much money he had, he had no intention of risking his life to hunt.
Rather, he properly restrained Jeong Dae-sik, who was passionate about hunting because he wanted to make money.
The reason Seok Woo-won puts safety first was also to create an attack squad.
The party members with him now were hunters who had built up relationships with one or two people walking around the makgong for a long time. So Seok Woo-won regarded them as valuable, and gave them enough consideration to build up their skills and experience.
Daesik Jeong also received help in various ways, and it was at a level that I thought would be enough to do a solo.
However, Seok Woo-won was still waiting to hear an answer, and he didn’t say that he was going to create a raid right away, so he stayed there.
To say the least, it was quite savory to get a 30% share.
“You did a great job today too! Your hard work has been put into your account, so check it out.”
