– Volume 2 Episode 7
Jeong Dae-shik was excited and took out the spider baby spiders that attacked one after another with an accurate jab.
When they calmly clenched their fists, the spider baby spiders that were hit with a hundred feet and one foot were killed.
Since I had that much free time, I suddenly understood the situation.
The people fighting ahead were all temporary crew members.
Officials were watching the situation from behind with their arms crossed.
The tank team that should have been ahead of the moment, Baek Yang-jwa, had no temporary crew, so they were far away.
It seemed that he had no desire to fight against the little spiders.
After all, they hired dealers to use them at times like this.
Even so, it didn’t feel very good because I realized that I was really in charge of the shield.
Jeong Dae-sik didn’t want to waste any energy, so he killed the spider baby spiders with dryness.
Still, the spiderling was no match for him.
It wasn’t long before the situation was settled, and the few surviving spider baby spiders were scattered all over the place.
It was an easy fight with no injuries, but the temporary crew were sweating, probably because they were quite nervous.
Except for Jeong Dae-sik, only Ki Cheol-min looked calm.
He, too, must have fought moderately.
Maybe it was because they were smoking the same thing, so I was able to recognize that fact at once.
The cheap iron sword he was holding was relatively clean.
Unsurprisingly, as his eyes met Jeong Dae-sik, he smiled cheerfully.
He seemed to already know well that he shouldn’t waste power.
On the other hand, the other temporary crew were already about to die.
Exhausted from the heat and tension, he was sweating profusely.
It was questionable how they were going to get to where the nukes were.
“Come on, let’s get in line and set off!”
Hwang Mi-geon hired temporary crew members who were a little crazy.
The march began with the formation of the ranks again.
Before long, another monster appeared.
This time, it was a caterpillar the size of a house.
There were disgusting hairs all over his body, and he couldn’t tell where the front and the back were.
However, before judging the advance squad as an enemy, they began to spit strange bodily fluids from their bodies.
“It’s poison gas!”
“Buffer! Hit the shield!”
“Wizards push out poison gas!”
A shield made of magical power was put on, and the wizards sent poison gas to the back of the caterpillar by magic using wind.
Taking advantage of that opportunity, Hwang Mi-gun ordered the dealers to attack.
This time, only the temporary crew were fighting.
Ki Chul-min and others who wield spears stabbed the caterpillar’s soft body with their knives.
The caterpillar then dripped acidic, gooey blood from the wound.
Because of that blood, Wandil couldn’t attack properly.
If the wound was accidentally ruptured, the acidic blood could be washed all over.
Of course, it would have to be if the buffer provided proper protection or if the healer used a heel, but they didn’t.
To save power, I just stood with my back.
It was only the temporary crew who rushed to the caterpillar to kill it and tried their best.
Everyone was using their jaws and stabbing the caterpillars, getting burned with acid blood.
Seeing that scene, I sighed.
Even so, Jeong Dae-sik never stepped forward.
It was the same for Ki Chul-min.
Finally, the caterpillar died with punctures all over its body.
Everyone was happy for a while, but Hwang Mi-geon hurried to go, and it seems that the other temporary members also understood the situation.
When they realized that they were the only ones who fought, they became frustrated or dissatisfied.
After a while, the save points marked by the scouts appeared.
It meant that it was relatively safe, so I took a break.
The temporary crew sat down in fear when they heard that they were taking a break.
Then he started complaining while drinking water or wiping his sweat.
“But will you continue to fight like this in the future?”
Words came from here and there, one or two at a time, as if waiting for someone to say something.
“If you could help me a little, it would be over in no time. No matter how much we’re temporary, we’re doing too much.”
“I didn’t even lift a finger. How can I follow you all the way with this?”
Ki Chul-min frowned as if the words were so loud.
As an unfavorable person, he said with annoyance.
“Hey, you talk a lot. If you’re dissatisfied, give up now and go back. Didn’t you come in knowing that it would act as a shield anyway?”
Who was offended by that?
Ki Cheol-min groaned with his teeth exposed.
“Then, it’s a shield. Other than that, what are you doing to bring dealers who don’t see much of anything like this?”
Perhaps he felt he was right, but this time he didn’t say anything back.
Everyone kept their mouths shut with a gloomy expression, and Ki Cheol-min was sarcastic to the end.
“Everyone understands the topic and fights in moderation. Don’t get bogged down after trying your best, saying you’ll do well for nothing.”
In response to Ki Chul-min’s advice, the temporary crew slowly looked at each other.
They, too, seemed to have noticed how they survived as temporary crew members.
After a while, the advance team set off again.
As we progressed beyond the save point, from then on, all kinds of monsters began to attack without a break.
Starting with colored spider baby spiders, large and small caterpillars were densely packed.
Avoiding things that can be avoided in moderation, and moving quickly for the purpose of progress, but not long afterward, an opponent who could not dodge the trick appeared.
It was a giant centipede that suddenly appeared as if falling from the air.
His whole body was red and only his legs were yellow, which was terrifying.
It was only the size of an adult male.
It wasn’t just one or two, but dozens of them fell from the tree.
Instinctively, there was chaos all over the place.
Hwang Mi-gun drove out the enraged temporary crew with a loud voice that didn’t look like a small body.
“What are you doing! It’s just disgusting to look at, there’s nothing to see! Smash your hair, your hair!”
Hwang Mi-gun showed the demonstration, but the bewildered temporary crew could not accurately target the head.
Separating Amon’s body only resulted in the wriggling and disgusting body stretching into two.
Eventually, he was stung by a centipede’s sting, and screams echoed everywhere.
Then someone impatiently shouted.
With those words, temporary crews raised their voices here and there.
“I want you to put up some shields!”
“Heal… what is a healer doing!”
While everyone was panicking and shouting, Hwang Mi-gun’s face was shriveled.
She tumbled in place with her cute features scornfully contorted.
The ground rumbled as if there had been an earthquake.
It was indeed a great power.
Seeing the scene, everyone was startled and stopped moving.
Even the giant centipedes stopped wriggling.
Hwang Mi-gun said, glaring at the temporary crews with ferocious eyes.
“Obviously I would have said there is no giving up. If you don’t want to die here, don’t whine like a child and fight!”
Because of the life she exudes, everyone has forgotten about the fear of the giant centipede.
There was a sense of crisis that if he didn’t really fight, he might die at the hands of Hwang Mi-gun.
Of course, it seemed that she wasn’t just threatening without thinking.
Hwang Mi-gun easily killed a few large centipedes and told Jeong Dae-sik.
Until I entered the dungeon, I used to use respectful words, but suddenly it was changed to half-talk.
But it wasn’t in the mood to make a fuss about that.
“I thought you said it’s okay to be a 6th grade buffer? Then pay as much as you get incentives!”
It seems that Jeong Dae-sik was noticing that he was cheating.
Jeong Dae-sik said to himself, ‘Damn!’ He murmured and unfolded his strengthening skills.
His magical powers spread in all directions, and the temporary crews who were fighting received strength.
They were bewildered by the sudden increase in attack power and resumed the battle.
Soon the situation was settled and the centipedes were killed in droves.
Without time to breathe, the ranks started again, and Jeong Dae-sik also moved on silently.
Then, during the break, the first man who complained before saw Jeong Dae-sik and got angry.
When Jeong Dae-sik looked at him, he hesitated for a moment.
He was a man with the impression of a bald eagle, with his hair dyed with blonde hair.
“Yeah, you. Why haven’t you been doing anything while you’re a buffer?”
Jeong Dae-sik frowned, not knowing why the arrow suddenly returned to him.
“Can’t you put a buffer on each one of them, even when they’re dealing with monsters that aren’t anything special?”
The blonde hair stuttered as if in bewilderment.
“Rice, it’s nothing! I almost died!”
“Um-sal. I saw earlier that they often fight.”
“Ah, anyway… All the temporary crews are fighting desperately, so what are you doing to spare yourself? Are you a temporary member too?”
“So, you mean I have to listen to your side?”
Jeong Dae-sik said coldly.
“If you’re only going to talk about dying like this, you shouldn’t have come here in the first place. That centipede wasn’t even a dangerous monster to say you’d die. It just looks disgusting, right?”
He sighed and continued.
“Aren’t you confident in your own abilities enough to apply for something like this? That’s right, you have to take care of your own life.”
Jeong Dae-sik was right in every word, so the blonde didn’t say anything more.
He just stared at Jeong Dae-sik with an angry expression and walked ahead of him.
After many twists and turns, the advance team arrived at the second base camp that the reconnaissance team had established first.
It had been almost twelve hours since we left our first base camp.
There were three save points along the way, but it was the first time I had a proper break.
Horses are a save point, and a reconnaissance team can’t confirm everything.
If you hit Sheila, a monster would pop out and move again.
In the process, Jeong Dae-sik consumed quite a lot of mana.
This is because he almost took on the buffer role by himself.
Fortunately, he has enough magical power and has plenty of stamina.
