-12 Volume 4
Choi Beom-soo, who had been with him, said after hearing the sound of Kang-il’s grumbling.
“It must have been true that the hunter had to fight monsters until he died.”
The car barely crossed the Han River bridge, which was heavily trafficked, and reached the command headquarters.
Jeong Dae-sik, along with Kwang Pil-doo, immediately headed to the auditorium where the engineering commanders were convened.
The briefing was in full swing there, and as Kang Il said, the engineering commander, the engineering commander, seemed to have been summoned.
Jung Dae-shik’s familiar face was also seen occasionally, while the explanation of the situation continued.
“Currently, large MFPs are installed at each of the twelve points, so I think that for the time being, it will be able to block the approach of monsters. And the place marked with a red dot is an evacuation shelter. You can refer to the map we are handing out. We will send each of you as a hologram file.”
Jeong Dae-sik, who was standing in a corner because he could not find a place to sit, was also handed a map. The explanation continued while looking at the map.
“The blue dots are the city’s major facilities. The red and blue dots are the top priority areas to defend.”
Soon the screen changed, the map disappeared and a table appeared.
“You can refer to this table to see where each raid and coalition must defend. Raids that are not marked in this table will be assigned a separate mission, so please remain at your seat after the briefing is over. You will be moved to each location after a while, but before that, you can receive necessary items and equipment. You can check the basic supply list at the entrance, and if you need additional items, you can apply separately. Because the staff runs at a specialized hospital, we receive support from a healer who will go there.”
Then someone raised his voice as if it were nonsense.
“What kind of support do you get in a situation where even healers who go to the field are lacking?”
Then others raised their voices.
“Why aren’t there any potions in the supply list?”
“The most important thing is potions! If the wounded doesn’t recover in time, it’s of no use!”
“On what basis was this location selection made?”
“How’s the local defense going?”
“Are there no additional MFP installations?”
“How much can the MFP tolerate?”
The briefing ended abruptly as the crowd grew louder.
The engineering captains left the seat with expressions full of sadness and dissatisfaction.
Then, in the same way, among the remaining engineering commanders, Kang Yeong-hoo appeared.
When Jeong Dae-sik bowed his head, Kang Young-hoo looked surprised at Gwangpil-doo standing in the back.
“It’s a bit long to explain.”
At that moment, Gye Young-il, the leader of the Awakening Federation, and several people from the Hunter Association rushed into the auditorium.
Perhaps they were the headquarters, so the remaining engineering captains approached them.
Gye Young-il told the engineering commanders to sit down and looked at Jeong Dae-sik and Gwang Pil-doo. And he spoke to Jeong Dae-sik first.
“I heard that his whereabouts are unknown, but he came back on time. That too, with the gwangpil-head and 7-star weapons. Indeed, that’s a great ability.”
Is it because of my mood that I felt the tone was a little sarcastic?
Jeong Dae-sik nodded his head and explained as simply as possible.
“Currently, Gwangpil-doo’s recruit is being detained by me. With my abilities, he is bound by a subordinate contract, so I can never disobey my words. So I decided that it would be better to give him a 7-star weapon to fight, so I did it.”
“Isn’t it too risky to hand over a 7-star weapon to a power destroyer? He is a serious felon. It would be right to entrust his disposition to the Awakened Crime Task Force.”
To what Gye Young-il said with a frown on his forehead, Jeong Dae-sik immediately responded.
“The punishment for the madman is not too late even after all this chaos has passed. There shouldn’t be a single man who wastes money now. I will take full responsibility for that.”
Jeong Dae-sik said so much, so Gye Young-il couldn’t say any more. However, he brought up the main point by adding that he would have to inform the Awakened Crime Task Force.
“One of the most important things in defending Seoul right now is securing stable electricity! Most of the electricity supplied to Seoul is coming from the nuclear reactors in Uljin and Yeonggwang, and although the self-defense system is operating, additional power will be required. Also, there is a new energy development complex here, which researches and develops a method for extracting power from magic crystals, but now the technology has reached the stage of completion and is being tested. In other words, you have to get everything ready and go here in an hour.”
Gye Young-il explained the details in a quick tone.
Jeong Dae-sik did not listen to the story.
The sight I saw as I entered Seoul somehow caught my heart.
‘I didn’t see any monsters when I came to Seoul. No matter how much MFP is installed, there are not many dungeons near Seoul, and it is normal when monsters are infested, which is strange.’
Then, Gye Young-il’s words came into my ears.
“Fortunately, the MFP is working its best, so we plan to install an MFP in this energy field as well. As you can see, the performance is good, so all the monsters will be able to retreat as soon as the pulse is emitted.”
The question deepened even more.
‘It is true that the MFP prevents the monsters from approaching, but is it enough to make all the monsters retreat? Even at the Hawaii defense base, the island itself was full of monsters?’
Jeong Dae-sik decided that the monsters had disappeared, not somewhere.
Then where did they go?
Someone ran up to me and whispered to Gye Young-il.
Hearing those words, Gye Young-il’s expression hardened.
He immediately looked at Jeong Dae-sik and said.
“I must go to the Han River immediately.”
“To the Han River?”
Jeong Dae-sik said with a sigh as he asked a question.
“A lot of monsters flowed along the Han River.”
Jeong Dae-sik took a break and immediately called the Fenrir unit, who was doing yoga. And through Seo Ji-won’s ability, he moved straight to the Han River.
There was already a commotion going on there.
Monsters were crawling on the bridge full of vehicles and attacking citizens, and the soldiers who broke into them were firing useless guns, and it was a complete mess.
Jeong Dae-sik created five hundred Servants that looked like children as much as possible.
After instructing them to evacuate the citizens, the troops were sent to the various bridges lined up in the Han River.
“Keep each leg one by one and defeat the monsters that cling to it!”
Seo Ji-won each blew them to the main bridge over the Han River.
After sending to Gwangpil-du, he moved too, and Jeong Dae-sik headed to Dongjak Bridge in front of him.
There, I saw a Merman clinging to a citizen the Servant was about to move. It was dangling from his clothes and biting his thigh with its sharp clawed claws.
The man bitten by the merman was screaming horribly unheard of.
Jeong Dae-shik immediately snapped his fingers and fired a small condensed magic bullet, which exploded the Murman’s head. And he immediately flew to him and handed him a potion.
“Are you okay? Drink this first!”
The man drank the potion given to him by Jeong Dae-sik, covered in tears and runny nose.
Jeong Dae-sik entrusted him to a Servant and aimed at the back of the head of Merman, who was just about to scatter over the bridge.
Jeong Dae-shik flicked his finger lightly as before.
Countless magic bullets poured out of his body and flew straight to the back of the head of the merman.
Since he was using multiple aiming, he harpooned the heads of the Murmans without missing a single shot.
So, at once, I killed the Mermen on the Dongjak Bridge, but there was no end to the men riding up from the water along the bridge.
“I’m a little late!”
Choi Hee, who had not been seen before, appeared.
She was probably in a hurry to deal with a huge monster, and it was a mess.
His head was turned over and his face was stained with blood and soot. But the figure floating in the air could not look so dazzling.
When Jeong Dae-sik shouted her name, she smiled and lifted Horagalles high. Then, dark clouds gathered from the sky, and darkness came in an instant.
Soon, rain of lightning fell from the swirling air.
“Electric Shock Recall!”
The waterfall of lightning poured down along the Han River, and the sight was both majestic and terrifying.
A heavy thunderstorm came pouring down without mercy, and the crew members on the bridge were worried.
However, Choi Hee judged that the Fenrir troops had sufficient ability to avoid it.
Or maybe he thought he needed to get things done before things got worse.
Anyway, the pouring thunderbolt almost blinded my eyes.
Electricity drawn down by lightning spread into the water, and the merman quickly turned into tasteless tempura.
After a while, after the lightning storm was over, the bodies of countless monsters floated above the Han River.
Not only Merman, but also sirens, Carnival Octopus, and other underwater monsters seemed to exist.
Choi Hee immediately came down on the bridge and frowned when she saw the dead bodies floating on the water.
“It would be a job to get rid of them all.”
“…I guess I don’t have to worry about that?”
oh oh oh oh oh!
Suddenly, the middle of the Han River, where the corpses of monsters were floating, began to swirl.
The corpses of the monsters were sucked into it and disappeared.
It was a whirlpool that made it seem like all the water in the Han River was disappearing, but it was not a natural phenomenon.
As if connected to another space, a huge monster that I never thought could come out of the Han River appeared.
At first I thought an octopus-shaped monster was crawling out of the water. Because an octopus the size of a house appeared in the middle of the whirlpool.
But it wasn’t long before I realized that it was a hasty decision. The octopus had a clear head, and underneath it was a body that looked like a bipedal type.
Its skin was covered with a slimy, sticky substance, with large crustacean claws attached to the tips of its arms.
The lower body was under the water, so I couldn’t confirm what shape it was. But he must have looked odd.
Jeong Dae-sik immediately tried the observation skill. Then there were disappointing results.
‘Damn, he’s 15 stars! Now, if anything comes up, 15 stars is ridiculous! They say you can get rid of them with a 15-star rating, but the location shown is not good!’
The Han River was flowing through the middle of downtown Seoul, and the octopus monster appeared between Dongjak Bridge and Han River Bridge.
At least two bridges would be broken if he started to riot, and the entire area of Seoul could be engulfed in a tsunami.
Just because the octopus monster appeared now, the water level of the Han River rose, and the entire area along the Han River was submerged in water as if it had been damaged by a flood.
Besides, the water level was getting higher and higher, so there was no time to procrastinate.
But at the same time, it was quite difficult to know how to deal with him.
You don’t know how far the aftermath will go if you use the magic spell in such a place.
Even if Gwangpil-doo was able to block it with his 7-star armor, the city was too close here.
There was no guarantee that the shock would be completely offset, so it was impossible to release the force hastily.
The only comforting thing was that, as a result of observation, there was a place to attack.
