-9 Volume 2
‘Kwang’s last name is rare… Is it a younger brother or a cousin?’
Kwang Pil-doo walked over and pounded Kwang Young-sik’s head. Then he grabbed the child by the shoulder and dragged him to Jeong Dae-sik, forcing her to bow his head.
“Well, I was wrong…”
Even Gwangpil-doo apologized at the same time, and Jeong Dae-sik scratched the back of his head with a humble feeling.
“No, well. There are no injuries, so it’s fine.”
Gwangpil-doo, who raised his head at the words of Dae-sik Jeong, looked at Dae-sik with a new look and continued.
“…I heard that he was coming.”
“Oh, me too.”
“Are you all-in-one?”
“How did it happen?”
Gwangpildu, who spoke bluntly, held out his hand.
Jeong Dae-sik clasped his hand with a trembling feeling.
Along with the grip power, an unknown heat was transmitted through the palms touching each other.
Gwangpildu waved his hand lightly as if it meant nothing, and released it.
“I heard you came because you needed something.”
“Yes. Gwang Pil-doo must have come because he needed something, right?”
Gwangpildu nodded his head with an expressionless face.
“Yes. As you know, I came here because I needed the fourth item of the 7-Star Armor. The armor that Mr. Jade Palmer owns.”
Jeong Dae-sik licked his lips as if his mouth was dry for some reason.
“…You already have three 7-star weapons, do you need one more?”
Gwangpildu didn’t say anything or say anything.
He didn’t say anything outrageous, and instead of avoiding eyes or changing the topic, he spoke frankly.
“We need four more in the future.”
“…You mean you’re going to collect all 7-star weapons?”
At those words, Kwang Pil-doo said something he didn’t expect at all.
“Aren’t you planning to collect all the Magjeon, too, Daesik Jeong?”
Jeong Dae-sik was speechless and paused for a moment. To be honest, Dae-Sik Jeong didn’t necessarily think that he had to collect all the Magjeon. He was demonstrating its power with just one pair of wrist armor, so he was not desperate for the finished version.
Nevertheless, the reason for collecting Magjeon was greatly influenced by Kwang Pil-doo. People around him think of Dae-Sik Jeong as the antagonist of the leader, so it is necessary to prepare in case he collects all the 7-star weapons.
Instead of answering Gwangpil-doo’s question, Jeong Dae-sik asked again.
“It must not be easy to collect all 7-star weapons. What are you going to do with all of them?”
Hearing Dae-sik Jeong’s question, a strange expression appeared on Gwang Pil-doo’s face.
It was as if he was asking because he did not know that.
Jeong Dae-sik didn’t really know the reason, so he looked at him with a somewhat bewildered face. Then Gwangpildu softened his facial features and spoke in a light tone.
“What’s the reason for a Hunter to become stronger?”
If it were me, I would not have been able to answer easily, but Daesik Jeong had seen and heard about it. Jeong Dae-sik naturally turned his gaze to Kim Tae-hee, then looked at Gwangpil-doo again and said.
“…because you want to be strong?”
Gwangpildu had a faint smile on the corners of his lips.
It was because he had a rough impression in the first place, so just a little smile changed the atmosphere.
Looking at the expression he made instead of answering, Jeong Dae-sik said.
“Are you trying to gather 7-star weapons to become stronger?”
Gwangpil-doo seemed to think that there was no need to answer that question. He turned around without saying a word and bowed his head to Jade as he took Kwang-Young-Sik with him.
“Sorry for causing a fuss. If anything is damaged, I will compensate you.”
“I will crack down on my younger brother so that this does not happen again.”
Gwang Pil-doo and his younger brother disappeared, and Seol Yu-ran followed in his footsteps. As they disappeared, the tension was relieved, and Jade muttered in amazement.
「It is amazing that such a young child has such powers…! There is no other transformer!”
He also seemed to have the same thoughts as Jeong Dae-sik. Even in the eyes of Jeong Dae-sik, Kwang Young-sik’s ability was astonishing. He seemed to have the ability to change or manipulate, but he seemed to be able to control any object by changing it to his liking.
‘Brothers are Awakened side by side. It’s special.’
Jade disappeared in admiration, and Kim Tae-hee and Liz came closer. Tae-hee Kim asked, “Are you okay?” and Dae-sik Jeong shook her head and said, “It was nothing special.”
“I didn’t know Kwangpil-doo had an Awakened brother.”
At those words, Kim Tae-hee made an unexpected sound.
“I didn’t know either.”
“You didn’t know?”
“I knew he had a younger brother, but I didn’t know he was an Awakened.”
“Looking at how young you are, have you awakened recently?”
Liz, who couldn’t intervene because she didn’t speak Korean, managed to get the timing right.
“No matter how young you are, you are rude. You attack a sleeping person! Could it be a conspiracy of light?”
“If you really wanted to target me, you wouldn’t have stopped at the Disney level.”
“There is such a thing. Anyway, I’m fine, so we’ll both go back.”
Jeong Dae-sik sent them back and went back to bed.
The strange phenomenon that had occurred in the room where he was staying had already disappeared. The bed turned into a bed, and the table turned back to the table. However, the layout was so messed up that Dae-sik Jeong felt annoyed and had to put all the furniture back in place.
The next day, Jeong Dae-sik woke up early. It was because I couldn’t sleep well after going through the riot at night. He got up at dawn and he went out and looked around the mansion’s garden.
As I was walking slowly for a walk, there was an unexpected encounter. It seems that Gwangpil-doo also got up early. I just ran into him who was running lightly around the garden.
“Ah, Mr. Kwang Pil-doo.”
Jeong Dae-sik pretended to know him first, and he took off the earphones he was wearing and greeted them.
“You woke up early. Did things get in the way last night?”
“It’s also because the bed is unfamiliar. Kwang Pil-doo also woke up early.”
“I’m in an unfamiliar place too, so I can’t sleep well.”
It felt a little strange to be talking with a man who was treated like an enemy in such a carefree way. In other people, the image of Gwangpil-doo was considered to be an ambitious person who wants to acquire great power, and an ambitious person who does not know what to do with that power.
The Gwangpildo in front of him looked no different from the other Fenrir troops. Isn’t it the same as Choi Hee’s thinking about collecting 7-star weapons just to get stronger?
Jeong Dae-sik said, questioning whether there is any need to be wary of the lighthead.
“How long will you be here, Mr. Kwang Pil-doo?”
“I will leave as soon as my business is over.”
“As I said yesterday, you would need a considerable amount to purchase 7-star weapons.”
“I can’t even imagine how much it would cost. How did you come up with the money to buy it?”
Jung Dae-shik asked a question that was also asked by most people who knew about the deal. No matter how maddened he was, even if he devoured the Zodiac Raid and became an engineer, he wouldn’t have much money. But how did you buy 7-star weapons from Jade Palmer?
There was a sense of embarrassment to ask openly because it was a matter of money, but as expected, Kwang Pil-doo had no hesitation whatsoever. Apart from his ambitions, personally, it seemed clear to him that he was an easygoing and candid personality. Jeong Dae-sik answered the question without hesitation.
“I didn’t have any other funds, but I think I’ll be able to purchase 7-star weapons.”
“If you don’t have money, what can you do…”
In the next moment, Pil-Doo Gwang made a sound that made Jeong Dae-Sik gasp.
“I’m selling the Zodiac raid.”
Jeong Dae-sik was surprised and asked a question.
“The Zodiac Raid? Jade Palmer?”
“No… is that possible?”
“What is impossible?”
That’s right. Nothing was impossible. In fact, the sale of the Zodiac Raid was advantageous to the geek. Isn’t this the position of an engineering captain who killed and robbed former engineering captain Kang Chul-woo?
Naturally, there was a strong backlash within the Zodiac Raid, and the Zodiac Raid was on the verge of disintegration. Given the circumstances, it might be better to sell it for a price than to hold on to the chaotic raid.
However, this was purely a story in terms of profit and loss, and from a moral point of view, it was disastrous.
Kwang Pil-doo killed Kang Chul-woo, who was the commander of the Zodiac raid, to take the 7-star weapon and took his place. If that was the case, he had to dominate the Zodiac raid with a charisma comparable to that of Kang Chul-woo and achieve better results than before. Only then will he be able to atone for overthrowing Kang Chul-woo and robbing him of his weapon.
However, Gwangpil-doo said that he would abandon the Zodiac raid and sell it whole in exchange for another 7-star weapon.
From the point of view of the Zodiac raiders, of course, it was terrifying of betrayal and anger.
If you were going to sell the Zodiac raid in this way, you should have kept Kang Chul-woo alive. He should have left the Zodiac Raid, at least with only his weapons. Then, among the team leaders, someone excellent enough to be mentioned as a unit commander would have been able to take charge of the Zodiac raid and manage it.
However, he forfeited even the opportunity to do so, took the position of chief engineer, and eventually tried to sell the Zodiac raid as a commodity. He couldn’t even be a costume.
If it was Jeong Dae-sik in the past, he probably would not have realized this part. However, as he became the commander of Fenrir and took his subordinates under his command, he realized the responsibility of being a leader to some extent.
As a result, I realized how absurd it was for the engineering commander to sell the raid directly, and the voice of disapproval flowed out of his mouth.
“If you hand over the Zodiac raid, then what will happen to your raid members?”
“They will have a new commander under Jade Palmer’s direction.”
“But, you are the commander of the Zodiac Raid, Mr. Kwang Pil-doo…”
“Most of the time I have the position of chief engineering officer, and I feel averse to it. If I step down, I’d rather like it.”
“Isn’t there someone who isn’t? And strictly speaking, it’s not going to be withdrawn, but it’s sold out. It’s said to be owned by ordinary people, not Awoken or Hunters…”
“Those who are dissatisfied with that will have to rip the contract and leave the raid. As long as the commander changes anyway, the Zodiac raid won’t be the same as it used to be.”
“But still, the Zodiac raid is not an ordinary place. Isn’t it the largest raid in Korea? To pass it into the hands of ordinary people overnight.”
Gwang Pil-doo was only listening to Jeong Dae-sik’s words from afar. Jeong Dae-sik knew that he wasn’t listening to him. In fact, it was also a problem that Dae-Sik Jung couldn’t talk about.
