– Volume 2 Episode 16
Jeong Dae-sik left Seol Yu-ran and Hwang Mi-gun to get along.
In the meantime, I saw a scene where Ki Cheol-min was unharmed.
I was relieved to see that he looked better than anyone else.
Jeong Dae-shik smiled and patted Ki Cheol-min on the back.
“Did you survive?”
Ki Chul-min shrugged.
“I survived with an eyebrow. I wondered what would happen when a thorn scorpion wipes out the dealers with its sting…”
Ki Chul-min gestured towards Gwangpil-doo.
“Doesn’t Jeochi and Kungjjak go well together?”
“Yeah. I was unexpected too.”
Ki Chul-min soon put a strange smile on his lips.
“Honestly, I didn’t expect to come back with my limbs intact after I went out hunting today. Thanks to that, I made a big contribution. The value of magic stones doesn’t seem very high, but still, magic stones are magic stones. there will be.”
When the money story came out, Jeong Dae-sik immediately opened his eyes.
“Roughly how much do you think you will earn?”
Ki Chul-min shrugged at Jeong Dae-sik’s question.
“You’ll have to get it to know? It’s the first time I’ve stayed in a dungeon raid until the end. I don’t get a good feel for it.
“How many tens?”
“Billions, billions, billions.”
Not one billion, not two billion, but several billions!
Jeong Dae-sik gulped and swallowed the dry saliva.
Seeing Dae-sik Jeong like that, Chul-min Ki continued.
“As you said, if money is the goal, wouldn’t it be okay to retire after this hunt?”
Ki Chul-min was right.
A few billions of dollars could be enough to buy a decent building.
After that, I will be able to give up the hunter life and live comfortably while receiving monthly rent.
It’s something I’ve never been looking forward to.
Jeong Dae-sik felt strange rather than happy.
It is true that he wanted to quit hunting as soon as possible to earn money.
But so quickly?
At least for a while… At least I thought I’d have to work hard for a few more months.
In an unexpected situation, the rearranging began.
Jeong Dae-sik helped to move the wounded and clear the road for easy entry by the rear squadron with porters.
All the while, the word ‘retirement’ was floating around in my head.
Chapter 11. Scout Offer
When I left the dungeon, the air of the real world felt sweet.
It was a damp jungle-type dungeon, so it was hot and dark all the time.
Outside, the sun was shining and the wind was cool.
As soon as Jeong Dae-sik came out, he took off the reinforced aluminum armor that was dirty and dented in a mess.
I threw it on the floor and sat on the floor, but no one said anything.
Not only that, but all of the crew were enjoying the safe escape from the dungeon.
Hwang Mi-gun urged such members.
“Come on, come on! If it’s a break, let’s go to the hotel and do it! Hurry up and get in the car!”
After the rearrangement, the crew got on the Jeep.
After driving for a while, we arrived at a hotel.
Although not very luxurious, it was a resort-type business hotel with onsen, suitable for a short break.
Occasionally, the Zodiac raid used to rent after hunting, so the staff ran out and greeted the crew familiarly.
The crew took off their clothes and went into the public bath to wash away the sweat, body fluids of all kinds of monsters, and their tired bodies.
Jeong Dae-sik also took a bath with them, changed into the provided T-shirt, and ate at the buffet.
The meal with a glass of beer was amazing.
I ate until my stomach exploded, went straight to my room, and rested on a soft bed.
When I woke up from a deep sleep, most of the regular crew were on their way home.
I found Jeong Dae-sik, who came down to the lobby to have breakfast after only the team leaders remained.
“Daeshik-san! This is it!”
“Who wants to be, Mr. Daeshik?”
While Seol Yu-ran and Hwang Mi-geon were constantly arguing, Park Moo-shik briefly mentioned what happened next.
“Soon, as soon as the appraisal of the resources obtained in the dungeon is completed, the settlement letter will be sent. You can check the contents and choose a settlement method and contact us. Perhaps the scout offer is about that, too. I will.”
At Park Moo-sik’s words, Jeong Dae-sik showed off his face.
Seeing that expression, Park Moo-sik smiled.
“If the chief engineering officer decides to hire Dae-Sik Jeong, I don’t know what other conditions he may put forward. The provisional contract I showed you was something I could only propose within the scope of my authority. So, please wait for the news with an open mind. .”
Even if he didn’t want to join the Zodiac raid, it was a good thing he appreciated himself.
Jeong Dae-sik was polite and greeted the team leaders.
“Thank you. This hunt has been a good experience for me.”
“So are we. We hope to see you again soon.”
After shaking hands with them and having a quick breakfast, Jeong Dae-sik went up to his room to get his equipment.
The supplies they received from the Zodiac raid were able to carry them as they were, so they had a lot of luggage.
Unless he was wearing the reinforced aluminum armor he was wearing alone, it was quite bulky.
However, Dae-sik Jeong put all the luggage in the space.
The intangible space, a kind of inventory, had tripled in capacity as the store was upgraded.
Thanks to that, I was able to put all of my luggage in it.
Jeong Dae-sik wore the T-shirt he received from the Zodiac Attack and left the hotel, pulling slippers.
Then Ki Cheol-min, who was holding a taxi, looked at him puzzledly.
“You, where are you going to throw away your luggage?”
“I’ve already sent you away. Are you on your way back now?”
“Yeah. I should go get some rest.”
He said fiddling with his nose.
“If possible, try to find a way to fix this.”
Jeong Dae-sik laughed.
“It doesn’t look too bad. It looks like a veteran hunter, but what?”
Ki Chul-min frowned.
“Look at this thing on your face. Does it come out like that?”
Ki Cheol-min, who said that, saw the taxi arriving and packed up his luggage.
And as I was about to get into a taxi, I suddenly hesitated.
It seemed like he had something to say to Jeong Dae-sik.
However, thinking that it was not necessary, he left with only one blunt word, “I’m going” and left.
Jeong Dae-sik did not hesitate any longer and moved on.
Of course it’s a subway station.
“He told me to take a few lines from here……”
No matter how many billions of money was going to come in, Jeong Dae-sik was public transportation even if he died soon.
Wearing a t-shirt bearing the mark of the Zodiac raid, he made his way to the subway station.
Not long after waiting at the platform, the train arrived.
Jeong Dae-sik got on the train and found a suitable seat.
It was quite a distance because I had to go home a few more stops and change buses.
Jeong Dae-sik, wanting to go there, yawned his mouth open.
Then the boy standing next to him glanced at him.
I kept staring at him and wondered what English it was.
I was thinking absurdly that a pheromone that only works for female hunters could be emitted here as well, but the boy cautiously spoke to me.
The boy, who looked to be at least twenty years old now, pointed at the T-shirt that Dae-Sik Jeong was wearing and asked.
“Is this the Zodiac Raid T-shirt?”
“Oh, yes. By the way.”
I looked at him wondering why I was asking that, and the boy said with his eyes flashing.
“Are you a member of the Zodiac raid?”
Jeong Dae-sik glanced down at the T-shirt with the Zodiac Offensive mark on it and scratched the back of his head.
“It’s not like that.”
The boy opened his eyes wide.
“No? So, where did you get this T-shirt? Can I get some too? It’s my hobby to collect raid goods.”
was there anything like that?
Jeong Dae-sik said with a frown on his face.
“It’s not how I got it, I just got it after participating in the hunt as a temporary crew.”
At that, the boy opened his mouth wide.
“Yeah? This, as a temporary member… Are you a hunter then?”
As soon as the word “hunter” came out, people’s eyes focused on this side.
Except for a few who had earphones in their ears, everyone in the same room seemed to be looking at him.
Jeong Dae-sik nodded his head in a very burdensome feeling.
“That… by the way.”
“Wow! Ji, really? Are you a real hunter?”
“Yes. What’s weird?”
“No, no. It’s not like that…”
The boy suddenly began to rummage through his bag.
I was staring at him with a confused feeling, and some people took out their cell phones and took pictures.
The girls looked over excitedly and whispered, and heard the words “Hunter”, “Really?” and “Hunter?”
Being a Hunter is such a surprise.
Bewildered, the boy held out his notebook and pen.
“If it’s okay with you, please sign here…”
“Yes. I’m a hunter fanatic.”
“…but I’m not part of the Zodiac raid. I’ve only been with you for a while as a temporary member.”
It seemed that the saying that the boy was a hunter maniac was not a lie.
Among the dogs, he recites the characteristics of the Zodiac raid, whether he is particularly interested in the raid, or not even Jeong Dae-sik.
“Even if it’s a temporary crew, nobody uses people in Zodiac raids. I know you have to be at least rank 7, and Zodiac raids don’t hire people, so there are a lot of current full-time crews who are hired through the temporary crew process. . So maybe one day you’ll become a Zodiac Raider, you know! Future Zodiac Raiders should definitely get an autograph.”
Anyway, I asked him to do it, so there was no reason to refuse, so Jeong Dae-sik roughly signed the autograph.
The boy nodded his head several times, saying, “Thank you, thank you!”
Jeong Dae-sik gave a rough answer and moved to the Khan because his gaze was too heavy.
