-9 Volume 4
Seol Yu-ran bit her lip at Gwang Pil-doo’s cold words. Jade, who looked at the scene with interest, hinted at the guru, who once more glanced at his armor.
“As promised, will you hand over all the rights you have to the Zodiac Raid to me?”
Then Seol Yu-ran intervened and said.
“Jade! Please cancel this contract. You can’t have a Zodiac raid! No matter how much the engineering chief hands over his rights, he must not get the consent of his team leaders and investors. The share they have is……”
“Miss Seol, you don’t have to worry about that part. Because I already bought about 20% of the Zodiac Raid. If you combine that and the stake of the engineering captain that Mr. Kwang gives up on, the Zodiac Raid is completely mine.”
Seol Yu-ran’s expression turned into a blow. Jeong Dae-sik was watching the situation, but something strange happened. At this point, Liz had to come up with conditions that would overwhelm Kwang Pil-doo’s offer.
Only then will it be possible to prevent the Brilliant Aura Armor from acquiring the Brilliant Aura Armor.
But Liz stood with her arms crossed and did nothing. Jeong Dae-sik looked at him sideways and thought of a question.
When Seol Yu-ran stepped back with a puzzled expression, Jade looked at Gwangpil-doo and continued.
“But it is not without concern. If a large number of raid members who were not convinced by this fact departed, would the pattern alone be able to serve as a Zodiac raid? Each team leader’s breath is stronger than your influence, so if they become independent, they lose all their kernels.”
“So, you mean you won’t make a deal?”
“It’s not… that means additional compensation is needed.”
“An additional reward?”
“Actually, there is something I want to add to my collection. I hope you can help with that.”
Jade said, flicking his finger twice in the air.
“Crate Barrier Summon.”
There was something like a small wooden box in Jade’s empty hand. When I threw the wooden box with magic spheres scattered on its surface into the air, my eyes suddenly became dizzy.
Jeong Dae-sik stumbled for a moment, and then when he woke up, the space was separated. Gwangpil-doo was trapped in a square space called the box barrier. The others were standing outside, and the box barrier and the real world were completely separated, and I felt an indescribable sense of incongruity.
「What is this……?」
Seeing Jeong Dae-sik asking a question, Jade grinned and said.
“Oh, don’t worry. The space is clearly separated, so whatever happens inside the barrier won’t be affected outside it. It’s one of the things I’ve been struggling with.”
I felt completely disconnected from him even though Kwang Pil-doo was standing right in front of him. It was like looking at him locked in a small box. In a different way, it seemed to see a two-dimensional space. However, in reality, it was as if the leader was standing right in front of him, so it was indescribably bizarre.
Gwangpil-doo said with a sad look inside the box.
“What is this doing?”
Seeing that gaze was directed straight at Jade. He seemed to be able to see the situation outside even from within the barrier.
“Didn’t I tell you? There is something I really want to achieve, so I hope you can help me with that. Think of it as an added bonus to the Zodiac raid.”
Jade pulled something out of his pocket.
It was a small box like a cigarette case, I grabbed something from it and threw it like a seed into the box barrier.
It actually looked like Mr.
Something white the size of a plum seed rolled down the floor inside the box barrier. It was white and slightly pointed, and it looked just like a tooth.
It soon dug itself into the ground and began to grow at an alarming rate. The leaves and stems, which were initially thought to be cotyledons, grew in an instant and transformed into a human-like shape.
Eventually, it stopped growing and when it took its first steps, it had the appearance of a soldier made of ivory. But there was no reason in those eyes. There were only bright red eyes stuck on the plain face. Seeing this, Seol Yu-ran cried out.
“A dragon soldier…?”
I didn’t know what it was, so I talked to myself, and Kim Tae-hee briefly explained it to me.
“A soldier made with dragon’s teeth. In other words, they are called Berserkers.”
“Berserker! Was it made out of dragon teeth?”
“Not all Berserkers are like that, but I can say that it was the original. Once created, they fight to the death, and even after killing the enemy, they fight amongst the brothers, leaving only the last one.”
“What if that one person remains?”
“I’m off to find another enemy.”
Kim Tae-hee glanced at Jade and continued.
“What Jade wants to get is probably Berserker’s armor. It’s an extremely dangerous item that turns the wearer into a berserk…”
“You mean you put the Gwangpil-do in that kind of situation to get it?”
A total of seven dragon teeth were thrown by Jade.
There were as many as seven Berserkers around Gwangpil-doo.
Kim Tae-hee said while looking toward that direction.
“It’s probably not just for that purpose. For some reason… I thought it would be strange to leave Gwangpildu to come here.”
Jeong Dae-sik could see what Kim Tae-hee had omitted.
‘It’s a trap.’
The lighthead was not properly prepared for battle. He was dressed in a suit like Jeong Dae-sik and the others, and was not armed with any kind. The Berserkers charged towards him, who was defenseless. The Berserkers were armed with armor, a one-shield, and a long sword, and were about twice the size of a normal person. For a human being, he was even bigger than Gwangpildu, a giant.
Gwangpil-doo swung his shield and flew away from the Berserkers who were flying their swords. It was a very agile move for his body. After turning half a turn in his place to dodge the attack, Pil-Doo Kwang blew his elbow to hit Berserker in the face, and then circled again and extended his fist.
Gwangpil-doo’s fist hit the Berserker directly, but the monster could be any other monster.
The Berserkers did not blink an eye. They rushed towards the leader without taking any damage, but it seemed difficult to dodge the attack due to the large number of them. Then Kwang Young-sik shouted at Jade.
“Why don’t you provide a weapon when you say you want to defeat Berserker? You’re at a disadvantage with your bare body!”
Jade looked at Kwang Young-sik, who was protesting, with a clear gaze. Gwang Young-sik flinched at that glance. He immediately looked around him and tried to use his powers. The abundance of armor around him began to tremble with his magical power. But then, Liz grabbed something from the hem of her long dress and threw it at me.
It was like a shiny rope wrapped around Kwang Young-sik, and then Kwang Young-sik screamed and fell to the floor.
Seeing Kwang Young-sik screaming, Liz said calmly.
“It is a restraint orb that inflicts pain in response to magic. Don’t do it hastily, because you don’t have to use your magic.”
Jeong Dae-sik exclaimed in surprise at the sudden situation.
“Leeds! What is this to the little girl?”
“No matter how young a child, as long as they have supernatural powers, it is dangerous. Seol Yu-ran, don’t even move. If you want to cure the poison you ate this morning.”
Seol Yu-ran’s eyes widened. She said, covering her mouth and twisting her face.
“What did you feed me?”
“It is a basilisk poison. I’ll give you the antidote once the situation is over. Surely, he wouldn’t try to save Gwangpil-doo by throwing himself away with poison, would he? He’s the one who tried to sell off the Zodiac raid. He was trying to betray you.”
Hearing Liz’s words, Jeong Dae-sik noticed that all of this was planned and asked.
“What is all this about?”
Seeing Jeong Dae-sik showing an unpleasant look, Liz said politely.
“I’m sorry I couldn’t explain it in advance, but to protect security, we had no choice but to do it.”
“Is it security? Does this mean any kind of operation?”
“Under the agreement between the U.S. government and the Korean government, this is an operation conducted under the agreement between the U.S. government and the Korean government. The International Hunter Association and the Awakened General Federation decided that it was impossible for an individual to complete a 7-star weapon. So, under the leadership of the PCC and the Awakening Organization, with the help of Mr. Jade Palmer here, we decided to eliminate Mr. Gwangpil-doo and retrieve the 7-star weapons.”
“Then the reason I’m here…!”
“okay. However, if there is a mistake in the operation, Jeong Dae-sik will have to kill Gwang Pil-doo.”
At Liz’s words, Jeong Dae-shik felt a sense of absurdity.
“I have never heard of such a thing. I think I did my part by helping retake the Hawaiian Islands.”
“I told you it was just one situation. In fact, there will be no borrowing of Jeong Dae-sik’s power.”
“You mean that trap is capable of defeating the madman?”
“A Berserker is a monster equal to a 5-star level. If you want to deal with 7 of them, it’s too much in a reasonable state. Besides, the box barrier is an absolute seal that can never be broken. I can’t get out of there alive with his bare body.”
Jeong Dae-sik’s face was contorted. No matter how much you say it’s to prevent future danger, you tricked people into driving them to such a state. It felt cowardly and rude.
“Is it really necessary to do this? The 7-star weapon will never be complete anyway. Don’t you even know where the last one is? Besides, I don’t even know what the gangster is going to do with all of them, but to get rid of them… People’s lives are not flies’ lives.”
“The last weapon is said to be missing, but if you want to find it, there is nothing you can’t find. What would happen if a human could put in his grasp a powerful power that reached the level of a goddess. Isn’t it too risky to leave the power to destroy the world to one human will?”
“Even so, there’s no need to kill, right?”
“We don’t want to do this either. But he has already turned down all negotiations. He has declared that he will collect the 7-Star Weapons no matter what, so there is no other way than to get rid of them. It would be nice if he could just stop him, but he’s already neutralized three hunters with 7-star weapons. One died, one lost his ability, and the last one lost his reason, so it is not an exaggeration to say that he caused three deaths.”
Hearing that, Kim Tae-hee intervened.
“Wait! Losing her ability… Are you sure that the retired Yeo Jin-ju lost her ability?”
Liz nodded slowly.
“That’s right. Jin-ju Yeo was keeping the fact that he had lost his powers a secret in fear of getting revenge, but according to the intelligence, it is true.”
Kim Tae-hee’s face was colored with surprise.
