– Volume 4 Episode 1
Chapter 20. Expand your abilities
The worm gave out a flurry and collapsed.
Standing in front of him, Jeong Dae-sik said, “Huh! Huh!” exhaled a rough breath.
Rather than being overworked with dealing with the worm, he was busy running straight up to here after dealing with a male wyvern.
Fortunately, I arrived on time and was able to rescue my comrades from the worms, so I thought I was lucky, and the tension drained from my body.
‘I’ve exhausted all my magic. It’s empty.’
Jeong Dae-sik sighed and stretched his arms.
Afraid of that, something hit me from behind.
“Mr. Jeong Dae-sik!”
“Oh my gosh.”
Jeong Dae-sik, who had completely lost all strength in his body, almost fell down in the future.
He hurriedly balances and looks back.
There, Mi-rae Heo was hanging with tears in her eyes.
“It’s okay, it’s okay!”
Jeong Dae-shik twitched his lips at the words Ko Maeng-maeng said with a loud voice.
Soon, Park Mu-won also approached him and tapped him on the shoulder.
“I’m glad. I can come back.”
Even Yumi Hwang, who was in another raid, breathed a sigh of relief.
“I thought it was over…”
Jeong Dae-sik raised his lips with an awkward expression at their hospitality.
Then, Kim Si-on, who had picked up a black scallop with a parched face, came closer.
And he had a smile he had never seen before.
“It’s good to come back.”
Jeong Dae-sik was startled and almost bit his tongue.
He saw Kim Si-on smiling for the first time.
Occasionally, there were times when they looked like smiles, but most of them looked cruel and vicious, so I couldn’t think of a smile at all.
But seeing her innocent smile like this, I realized that Kim Si-on was more beautiful than I thought.
“Oh, um… no.”
Jeong Dae-sik was confused and shuddered.
Seeing him like that, Si-on Kim changed his expression as if he had ever been like that.
She asked with a face that had regained her composure.
“Is the Wyvern’s egg safe?”
“Yes, of course.”
Jeong Dae-sik nodded and realized his mistake.
You should have handed the Wyvern Eggs before sending them off.
Kim Shi-on would have planned to retrieve it later with a dimension pocket, but Dae-sik Jeong’s subspace was different from the dimension pocket.
It cannot be possessed by anyone else.
If he died, there was a high possibility that the subspace and the objects in it would also disappear.
Kim Si-on looked back at the wounded Yoo Tae-hoon.
Yoo Tae-hoon smiled bitterly.
“For now… he didn’t die.”
Kim Si-on said so, but to Jeong Dae-sik, Yoo Tae-hoon’s wounds seemed serious.
It might be okay to be able to use heels or have any potions left, but now everyone has exhausted their magic power and there are no potions.
Bleeding continued, so if you made a mistake, you could die before reaching the save point.
Hwang Yu-mi and Heo Mi-rae hurriedly took off Yoo Tae-hoon’s half armor.
Then he took off his ripped leather jacket.
The white T-shirt she wore underneath was soaked with blood.
It was carefully torn apart, revealing a gruesome wound.
The flesh had been completely torn off at the site of the worm’s bite.
Yoo Tae-hoon groaned and sweated profusely.
Park Mu-won vomited a sad voice as he stopped bleeding from his wounds.
“If only there was one bottle of potion…”
It was the same with Jeong Dae-sik, who was upset.
He managed to save the crew, but he could never say things were going well.
They had to escape from this place with two wounded people in a state almost naked.
Kim Si-on said as he saw Yoo Tae-hoon being supported by Park Mu-won.
“If you go a little further, Shin Chae-woon will bring the other crew members along. You just have to hold on until then.”
Kim Si-on spoke as if it would happen soon.
But no one would have naively believed them all.
They rode the undead wyvern until they came to the wyvern’s nest.
It would take a considerable amount of time to walk that street on two legs normally.
Kim Si-on took the lead as if ignoring that fact.
Park Mu-won supported Yoo Tae-hoon, and Kim Si-on moved on with the help of Hwang Yu-mi and Heo Mi-rae.
Jeong Dae-shik carried Sogang-doo, who was still unconscious.
Of course, there was no such thing as a rank.
They lined up in a row and walked like a remnant.
Following him, Jeong Dae-sik licked his dry lips.
He was also helpless.
However, if there was a difference, Jeong Dae-sik could change his status with money.
However, since I had spent a lot of money the other day, I did not have enough spare funds.
We had to come up with the best way for a small amount of money.
‘What should I do?’
Jeong Dae-sik once called up his status window.
It was invisible to others, and it was translucent, so you could see its contents while walking.
Jeong Dae-sik stared at the status window, contemplating what to do.
‘As long as all of the magic power has been exhausted, it is meaningless to acquire active skills for attack. I’d rather find a way to replenish my magic. But even that, I don’t know if it’ll be of any use as I’m writing it for myself. Even if there is a skill that has the same effect as a magic recovery potion, shouldn’t it be activated only when magic is basically installed?’
Daesik Jeong changed the direction of his thinking a little.
‘yes. Even if you recover your magical power from the current state, you can only get attack power as a result. When monsters appear, you will be able to fight. But it will take quite a while to get out of here, and it’s unclear what kind of monsters will appear. Even if you defeat a monster, another monster may appear.’
Jeong Dae-sik bit his lip.
‘If I’m alone, I don’t know, as long as there are other wounded and exhausted crew members, it’s just wasteful to catch and fight the monsters you encounter. The biggest goal right now is not to hunt monsters, but to escape from here. I’d rather find a way out of this place.’
By upgrading the shop level, he had some new skills that he could acquire.
I don’t know if any of the dogs have a way to overcome this situation, but that, too, could only be activated with magical powers.
One way or another, there was no way to solve the current state of depletion of mana.
‘Any skill must have magical power, but it is applicable… Ah!’
Daesik Jeong suddenly got a lightning-like realization.
‘yes! There are some skills that can be activated even without magical power! It is none other than a passive skill!’
Passive skills such as a steel body had nothing to do with the amount of magical power they possessed.
From the moment it was acquired, it was equally effective regardless of the state of Jeong Dae-sik.
If it had to have magical powers, but if the steel body had worked, Jeong Dae-sik would not have been able to stand here now.
‘Yes, passive skills work permanently once acquired! If so, you can purchase the passive skill that will help in this situation!’
After reading through the skill window several times, Daesik Jeong made a careful decision.
‘Extension of attention. I have to purchase this skill.’
The extension of attention was a skill that reads the enemy’s energy.
To be precise, it was possible to predict the monster’s approach in advance with the ability to capture life.
If so, it was possible to get out of this place safely with the crew because even if the monsters appeared, it could be avoided.
Then, a strange sound came from somewhere.
When I heard it, it was the sound of teeth grinding.
Yoo Tae-hoon, who was leaning on Park Mu-won, was grinding his teeth north and north because he couldn’t stand the pain.
His face was already blank and he was sweating like rain.
Seeing this, Kim Si-on, who was supported by Hwang Yu-mi and Heo Mi-rae, stopped as well.
She looked at Yoo Tae-hoon’s condition and said.
“I can’t. Let’s take a break.”
Yoo Tae-hoon rolled his eyes and shook his head.
“No. We need to find a save point quickly…”
“Before that, you will die!”
While the crew lay weary in the grassy place, Jeong Dae-sik came out saying he would be vigilant.
Standing at a distance from the other crew members, Jeong Dae-sik opened his mouth.
He looked cute like a teddy bear, so I really couldn’t get used to it.
However, as there was no situation to be concerned with such a thing, Jeong Dae-sik continued to speak quickly.
“Isn’t there an extension of attention among the skills I can purchase?”
“I’ll buy it.”
Jeong Dae-sik saw the attention expansion appear on the list of mental skills he possessed.
“This is a passive skill, so it’s always activated, right?”
When asked to confirm, Entropy nodded.
Entropy, with its head, body, and limbs divided clumsily, made such a gesture possible.
At first, it was just a sign like a speech bubble, but it was a remarkable development.
While Jeong Dae-sik was surprised by the fact, Entropy continued to explain.
“Say it simply, simply.”
The normal viewing angle of a person ranges from 110 degrees to 120 degrees.
However, not everyone sees everything that comes into their field of view.
When you are tense, your field of view narrows, making it difficult to see what is in front of your nose.
In other words, attention expansion also works differently depending on how conscious Jeong Dae-sik is.
“I understand what you mean. Well, it would be quite tiring if you had 120% of the effect of Extended Attention always activated.”
“To tell you the truth, I don’t think so.”
“What else do you mean?”
“What? It’s only 100m? That’s far enough to see with the naked eye! Why is it only that?”
