-8 Volume 2
“Are you infected? Is that so?”
“It’s not like that. Even if you’re infected, there’s no problem, so you’d better put that gun down.”
Jeong Dae-sik hurriedly used the awakening skill and made the troops drink detox potions.
If the person’s magical power was sufficient, such as Heo Mi-rae or Lee Jae-woo, the weakness quickly turned around and the face returned to its original state, but in the case of Seo Ji-won and God Deok-hwa, Kim Song-geun and Ki Cheol-min, the medicine did not eat well.
In particular, Ki Cheol-min’s condition was so severe that he grumbled and said a word to Kim Tae-hee, whom he loved.
“Even if the commander is like that, why are you okay?”
Kim Tae-hee crossed her arms and smiled and pretended to be handsome.
“Then, on this beautiful face, with shaggy black hair, would I feel refreshed?”
Ki Chul-min’s beautiful face turned into an expression of death.
Clearly, unlike her original appearance, Kim Tae-hee’s appearance was far from beautiful.
With her long hair, sparse hair, and thick horn-rimmed glasses, no matter how great she was, her beauty would have to hold her breath.
Above all, some magical action was taken on the horn-rimmed glasses that Kim Tae-hee was wearing.
As a kind of allusion, her impression is blurred like a normal person.
Ki Cheol-min turned his head to say that he should not see the opponent, and Beom Young-woo, who had been waiting until then, opened his mouth when he saw that the situation had calmed down.
“Perhaps it was the aftermath of the clash with Beseslav.”
“Yes. You will be fine soon.”
“I was surprised that I had just returned from the dungeon. When I saw the corpse of the Weirwolf piled up like a mountain, I got goosebumps…”
Bum Young-woo wiped his chest and said with a tone of surprise.
“As you said, when I went into the dungeon, there were countless Weirwolf corpses. It’s probably not going to be our team alone. I don’t know, but in case you don’t know, can’t you please help us until we’re done?”
Dae-sik Jeong said he would understand, and decided to help the support team with the reorganized crew.
They were vigilant while an additional 2nd support team arrived with newly hired porters and worked.
Thanks to this, the dinner had to be postponed to the next day, and the members of the unit felt very sorry for this.
In fact, even if I had time that day, I would not have been able to go to the party.
People would be terrified if I walked around the streets with black hair on my face.
Eating Vseslav’s heart was a bit embarrassing, but it was worth the inconvenience.
As Beseslav’s heart was digested and absorbed, the side effects of growing hair and ears disappeared, and his physical condition improved.
Fenrir troops, like wolves, have quick feet, bright ears and eyes, and are sensitive to smells and presence.
When Song-geun Kim farted without knowing the other members of the unit, everyone covered their noses and fell asleep.
Also, a strange bond arose between the crew members who shared their hearts.
Like a pack of wolves, that is, Pack, he came to regard his colleagues as one family.
In addition, Jung Dae-sik was regarded as an alpha mail and followed.
Jeong Dae-sik considered that part of the first mission as the greatest achievement.
The second achievement, as expected, was the income obtained from the Magic Stone.
As soon as Kang Young-hoo heard the news that the mission was successful, he personally came to SJ1D, which was in the process of getting rid of it, and congratulated the Fenrir unit.
It seems that he also thought in his heart that the Fenrir unit might fail.
I couldn’t believe the results they had achieved, but it was only when I saw the huge amount of Weerwolf corpses that came out from inside the dungeon that I remembered the expression of satisfaction on their blunt face.
Taking advantage of that opportunity, Jeong Dae-sik met with Kang Yeong-hoo and negotiated the right to Ma Jeong-seok.
“Are you going to have the Magic Stone personally?”
“Strictly speaking, we want to use it to enhance the power of our Fenrir troops.”
Kang Young-hoo frowned at the unexpected story.
The value of the sapphire-class stone obtained by Jeong Dae-sik by killing Beseslav was truly enormous.
You have to evaluate it exactly, but it was clear that it would cost tens of billions of dollars.
However, as Kang Yeong-hoo said he was going to use it alone, he would have to stop.
Kang Young-hoo stroked his chin and explained why he couldn’t.
“Putting aside my doctors, the state is strictly managing magic crystals. Actually, I tried to invest in magic crystals for the future, but it wasn’t easy. Of course, I can own the magic crystals I obtained on my own, but the Titan raid is only me. It’s not. The price for the Magic Stones obtained through everyone’s strength should be shared fairly.”
After speaking up to that point, Kang Young-hoo went one step further and became blatantly honest.
“The raid needs a lot of money. Without magic crystals, one of the main sources of income, there will be financial problems.”
Jeong Dae-sik shrugged his shoulders at the euphemistic refusal and said.
“You must have seen the Weirwolf we defeated in the dungeon, right?”
“That was great.”
“With that amount, I think we can fill the gap in our income to some extent. Put simply. You said you wanted to invest in the Spirit Stone? Is it just for wealth accumulation, or to prepare for the catastrophe that may one day come? is it?”
In response to Jeong Dae-sik’s question about the key, Kang Young-hoo stepped back and sat down.
He said with his eyes lit up with his back buried deep in the simple chair.
“My answer is the latter. As I should have already said. I want to establish the reason for the existence of the Hunters.”
“I know. I was asking because I wanted to be sure. I apologize if I offended you.”
“No, you don’t have to. Tell me what you want to talk about.”
“I mean, I can make my crew stronger than they are now. You already know I’m not lying? You’ve already seen the proof.”
“Certainly, the status of the Fenrir troops has risen one step at a time. Even the amount of mana that is considered to be close to impossible to expand has risen.”
“Yes. I don’t want to disparage my troops, but if I didn’t get stronger with my help, it would have been impossible to capture Vseslav. As everyone expected, I was exhausted against Wolfhedin and gave up on the mission. But we did it. I mean, I have the ability.”
“So, in return, do you want to have a Magic Stone?”
“Yes. If you accept that condition, the Fenrir troops will be stronger than they are now, and they will be able to attack more dangerous dungeons in the future. The dungeon resources you can acquire from there will bring wealth to the Titan Raid. Settlement won’t be a big deal.”
In fact, the answer was a fixed question.
Jeong Dae-sik was even thinking of leaving the Titan raid if Kang Yeong-hoo did not comply with this condition.
Without the magic stone, it was difficult to handle the sage.
Jeong Dae-sik needs more and more money.
So, if Kang Young-hoo did not want to miss Jeong Dae-sik, he had to comply with his request.
And it wasn’t that Jeong Dae-sik made an unfair offer either.
As Jeong Dae-sik said, if you were to attack a dangerous dungeon, the value of the dungeon resources you could get from it would be enormous.
Kang Young-hoo thought for a moment and then nodded.
“… Your request has never been unreasonable until now. I understand. Only the Magic Stones obtained by the Fenrir Units, we will allow them to be used freely. But I have a question. lead to?”
Kang Young-hoo seemed to wonder how Jeong Dae-sik was going to use the magic stone.
Even if Jeong Dae-shik personally owned the Magic Crystal, there were limits to how he could use it.
At best, it was to sell it on an authorized exchange and turn it into cash.
Since he had no choice but to be limited by the amount of natural mana, it required constant effort and time.
However, as Jeong Dae-sik talked as if Ma Jeong-seok was directly related to the problem of increasing the power of Fenrir troops, Kang Yeong-hoo, who did not know the story, had no choice but to have doubts like Jang Han-na.
Of course, it was unreasonable to explain it with Jeong Dae-sik’s mouth.
In fact, it was still daunting.
If Kang Yeong-hoo noticed Jeong Dae-sik’s ingenuity ability, his very existence would disappear.
Not wanting to imagine what the consequences would be, Jeong Dae-sik gave a stern warning.
“You seem to have forgotten that I’m an all-in-one. I have abilities beyond common sense. So you won’t understand. You don’t understand. Please trust me and don’t question me about that.”
Seeing that Jeong Dae-sik looked unusual, Kang Young-hoo said he would know.
And I asked one question.
“As for the all-in-one story… How about you?”
Not knowing what he was talking about, when I asked, Kang Yeong-hoo asked with a bitter smile on his lips.
“There must have been a number of conditions required to become an All-in-One. And among them, there must have been your will. The will to become stronger.”
Jeong Dae-sik clenched his lips and couldn’t answer clearly.
It is true that Jeong Dae-sik wanted to become an all-in-one, but he did not ultimately aim for that.
The reason he wanted to be strong was purely because of money.
Knowing that Kang Young-hoo despises such things, I couldn’t be honest.
Among them, Kang Young-hoo continued to ask questions.
“What are you trying to become by becoming so strong?”
“Are you going to be a god?”
The story seemed to go too far, so Jeong Dae-sik frowned and said quickly.
“What other reason do you want to become stronger? Isn’t it true that every hunter seeks to become stronger?”
For Jeong Dae-sik, it was a plausible lie.
He only spoke about the temperament and instinct of a hunter that he felt while watching Choi Hee or Ki Chul-min as if it were his own.
Then, Kang Yeong-hoo clasped his hands and spoke slowly.
“Yeah, yes. But I’m curious. What’s at the end of that strength? Just the fact that you’re an Awakening means you already have strength that transcends humans… What if you become ever stronger there? Wouldn’t it make sense to be called a god?”
“You seem to be thinking too much.”
Despite Jeong Dae-sik’s words, Kang Yeong-hoo continued to speak without hesitation.
“Then is that god a good god or an evil god?”
