-8 episode 23
Jeong Dae-sik ate two more in a hurry, and when he finished eating three fairy buns, he looked quite different from before.
Since he had reached a state of starvation, his skinny body was filled with muscle and fat again, and his face, which could be called a skullcap, was restored.
In addition, the number of physical condition that had been hitting the floor returned to some extent.
Jeong Dae-sik ate all the leftover bread, and after that, his hunger went away like a lie, and his body returned to its original state.
“Uh, is this good? As long as you have fairy bread, you can use Yamafan without any problems. If you eat it before training, it will also help you improve your physical condition.”
It is sure that the effect is good, but it was a bit ridiculous to spend 2 billion won on food.
Jeong Dae-sik smirked, pulled out the ringer, and got up from the bed.
Then the door was opened and the Fenrir troops appeared as there was a roaring noise outside.
“Captain! Are you okay?”
Seeing them rushing in, the nurse was frightened and ran and shouted.
“Please be quiet in the presence of the patient!”
“Oh, that’s fine. I’m fine.”
The nurse was startled to see Jeong Dae-sik, who suddenly seemed fine.
With her eyes wide open, she staggered backwards.
Jeong Dae-sik, who smiled like a boran because it was okay for the nurse, immediately looked at the Fenrir troops who had gathered and had a cold expression on his face.
“If you have something to say, they will come one by one. What did you all come here to do?”
Seeing that his heart was uncomfortable, the troops shrank with their mouths shut.
The first person to speak was Kim Tae-hee.
She scratched her shaggy hair and nodded her head.
“It was entirely my fault for ignoring the previous commander’s instructions and acting individually. It was my fault that caused some kind of misunderstanding between Ki Chul-min and the captain.
Ki Cheol-min immediately came forward to the apology without being extravagant.
“No. I’m the only one who said something stupid without knowing the circumstances. I don’t think there’s any excuse. I was wrong. I’m sorry.”
As soon as he bowed his head, Godokhwa stepped forward and opened his mouth.
“…I can’t say I’m not at fault either. Again, I didn’t say that because I didn’t trust the Captain. It’s just that I couldn’t overcome the past. I’m sorry.”
He bowed his head, saying that perhaps the rest of the crew had made a mistake.
Jeong Dae-sik sighed as the atmosphere in the hospital room was gloomy.
After the members of the troop meekly admitted their mistake, they could no longer be harsh.
However, my heart softened at the apology, and I had no desire to move beyond this.
Jeong Dae-sik said in a calm tone without mixed emotions.
“I will accept your apologies, but I have come to realize this. It is true that I have decided to lead you all the way, but my help is not everything. I do not think that you do not trust me. It is a matter of . You must have judgment commensurate with the abilities you will have in the future.”
Jeong Dae-sik continued his speech while looking into the eyes of the unit members who listened to his words one by one.
“Soon, I will be leaving for the United States to do some business. In the meantime, you guys will stay here at the Honolulu Defense Base and help the Phoenix raiders on the task of eradicating the monsters scattered throughout the island. I hope that this will serve as a basis for growth. When I return here, you will have to achieve individual development in some form. So, I hope that the Fenrir unit will be better than it is now.”
Jeong Dae-sik ended the story.
“This is an order.”
Then the Fenrir troops shouted in unison.
Jeong Dae-sik smiled at them once and then gestured like an annoyance.
“Then everyone go out now. Don’t hurt other patients.”
Fenrir’s troop members left Dae-sik Jung with a bunch of fruit, drink packs, chocolate boxes, and other food items.
After they disappeared, I turned around involuntarily and found Adam waiting outside the door for some time.
Jeong Dae-sik, who found him belatedly, hurriedly summoned him inside.
“I didn’t know you were coming. Come in.”
He sat him on the sofa and Jeong Dae-sik sat across from him and suggested drinks brought by the Fenrir troops.
He politely declined it, and Adam looked at Jeong Dae-shik up and down and said.
“I came here because I thought Dae-Sik Jeong was in bad shape, but luckily, he seems to be getting better.”
“Yeah, I wasn’t injured otherwise, it was just that my physical condition got worse for a while due to the aftereffects of the ability I used.”
“What kind of ability and how would you use it to become like that?”
Adam swept his chest down with an expression that he had been imprisoned for ten years.
Then he got up from his seat and bowed politely to Jeong Dae-sik.
“Thanks to Mr. Jeong Dae-sik, Herbor, who has long made Hawaii an island of hell, has disappeared. Thank you very much. I don’t know how to repay this favor.”
“no. It was something I could do, and it was something I had to do. I would like to say thank you for protecting the necromancers of the contingent from the Phoenix raid.”
“Thanks to all his efforts, he is in a state of unharmed without a single hair injury. It’s amazing indeed. There was no casualty in the destruction of that Herbor.”
“There are still many monsters left, so there must be no casualties.”
“Anyway, thank you again. You have fulfilled my long-cherished dream.”
Adam, who showed his head bowed even after sitting down, continued speaking.
“Mr. Jeong Dae-sik’s armor is being repaired at the blacksmith in our defense base.”
Jeong Dae-sik asked a little worried.
“Is my weapon safe?”
「It seems that there is no damage in the case of magic warfare, but it seems that there is some damage in the case of armor. But don’t worry. It may take some time, but since the material is a material, you will be able to return it to its original state in no time. And…….”
Adam dragged the tail and pulled something out of his bosom.
It was a stick wrapped around a bandage made of a material similar to parchment.
It is about 40cm in size and looks like a knife, but Adam carefully put it down on the table as if he was handling a brisket.
He answered Jeong Dae-sik’s question.
“This is Tyrving.”
“Is it Tyrving?”
“That’s right. It was found in the place where Herbor disappeared. After defeating Herbor, this is the only thing left.”
「My guess is that it is at least a top-notch, that is, an SSS-class weapon. And I think this is what Daesik Jeong should have. Since Dae-Sik Jeong defeated Herbor, the items obtained through him must belong to Dae-Sik Jeong.”
Jeong Dae-sik carefully picked it up.
It looked like something magical had been done, but nevertheless, it felt like it was being heated by fire.
Adam continued talking while looking at Jeong Dae-sik.
“Aside from that, reasonable remuneration for the work that Mr. Jeong Dae-sik has done here will be paid without any shortage after sufficient discussion.”
“Anyway, I was promised a certain amount of compensation from Korea.”
“Apart from that, I would like to express my gratitude to Mr. Daesik Jeong from the United States. Please do not decline.”
Since he had no intention of giving up, Jeong Dae-sik said he would look forward to it and smiled.
And Tyrbing also put it in the subspace and asked.
“How is the processing going?”
「In the case of an undead serpent, we are taking care of it by taking it to the shore with the help of a necromancer. Since the form was left intact to make it into an undead, I thought it would be a great help in researching monsters. Marine monsters themselves are rare, and since they are very large species, this is unprecedented. The monster research team you accompany and the research team here at the defense base will work together.”
「After Herbor was defeated, did the monsters not move much?」
“Most of the monsters on the other islands are in a quiet state, but on the island of Hawaii, all kinds of monsters are nesting. From lava slimes to fire drakes, salamanders, volcanic golems, and more, it seemed to be infested with all kinds of monsters. So I don’t think it’s going to be that easy to get rid of them.”
“Our contingent will remain to help with that. While I am away, Kim Si-on will take over the role of the interim captain.”
Adam nodded his head as if he had already heard what he said.
“I have heard of the story that Dae-sik Jeong is going to meet a man who collects 7-star weapons, and I know it. I’ve heard that Miss Garrett is going with you, so take one more person you can trust. As a guide, Miss Garrett would be sufficient, but still, if you are going to meet a dangerous person, shouldn’t you have someone to escort you?”
“I can protect my body well enough, but since Garret, who is an ordinary person, is going with me, there must be one bodyguard for safety. All right. I will take one of my crew with me.”
“Then, as soon as you recover, we will prepare a helicopter for Captain Anderson and bring him to his destination. At least you can rest here today, and call me or Captain Anderson tomorrow.”
“all right. Thank you for your consideration.”
Adam left, and Jeong Dae-sik lay flat on the roadside bed.
Then he took Tyrving out of the subspace and fiddled with it.
‘What about this? I can use it, but I don’t need it because I already have a magic mechanism. Should I just put it up for auction? Then at least a few tens of billions of dollars will come in…’
No matter how much Jeong Dae-sik likes money, I thought it was a waste to sell such a rare weapon.
It was also due to not knowing what the reasonable price was.
Once sold, the price skyrocketed, and in many cases, you would never be able to purchase it again.
Jeong Dae-sik thought about it for a while, and then said to Entropy, who was sitting quietly in the corner of the hospital room.
“Hey, entropy. How much is this weapon worth?”
