– Volume 4 Episode 2
Currently, Jeong Dae-sik has only 14 five senses.
The agility was a little better, but at least it was only 18.
In the meantime, he was not paying attention to the relative figures of other states because he was concentrating on points on his magic and stamina.
Therefore, it seemed that the attention extension skill was not able to show its ability.
“Hey, damn it! It’s hard to do that! How can you avoid monsters with only a 100m radius ability?”
“Damn… I’d like to, too, but haven’t the status point prices gone up a lot right now?”
843 million won.
It was a huge amount for just one point.
“So, if I want to buy 2 points, it costs 1.98 billion won, that’s it.”
Jeong Dae-sik groaned.
There were crews not far away, but I couldn’t care less about that.
He swung his arms and legs wildly in a rage.
“Why is the price so expensive for two points? Does it make sense to go up in billions? The amount of points is already huge, but then you raise it to billions again? It’s not going anywhere, but isn’t it too harsh?”
Entropy said expressionless.
“what is that!”
“Who doesn’t know that!”
Jeong Dae-sik couldn’t contain his anger and was courageous.
More or less entropy continued to speak.
“What, is this because I’m angry now because I’m angry? I’m more blessed than other people, so shut up!”
Jeong Dae-sik growled at the unanswered entropy.
“Usually, I would have agreed with what you said. But look at the situation now! The crew are all dying, and it’s going to take a while to get out of here! The only thing I can believe in is my ingenuity, but it’s an outrageous price for just one point. Does it make sense?”
Jeong Dae-sik paused.
“Didn’t there be around 980 million?”
So, that means there are about 1.98 billion hundreds of them.
I was able to purchase 2 points for the five senses.
I thought I was lucky, but Jeong Dae-sik took off the shichimi and said.
“Yeah? Yes, you can only buy 2 points! Can I have that?”
Entropy answered calmly, and Jeong Dae-sik felt anger.
I had a useless thought of smashing entropy with my fist, but it was literally a useless thought.
Jeong Dae-sik managed to calm his anger and said.
“…Okay. Five senses and agility, which of the two is more effective?”
“Then I’ll buy 2 points for the five senses.”
Jeong Dae-sik felt his taste bitter when he saw the reduced balance.
As a result, his balance was only about 1 million won.
Until just a moment ago, there was a balance of nearly 2 billion won in the bankbook, but at some point, all of that money had disappeared.
‘The point price increase is unusual. If you keep going like this, no matter how much money you make, it’s useless.’
Jeong Dae-sik was aware of the dilemma he was always facing.
He wanted to make more money.
To do that, you have to be strong.
You need more money to get stronger.
It felt like I was being caught in this contradictory yoke and spinning a wheel.
‘Damn… I feel like shit. But now is not the time to be irritable.’
Daesik Jeong waved his hand to return entropy.
And I tried the newly acquired passive skill, the extension of attention.
Jeong Dae-sik stood still for a moment and concentrated his mind.
It is the same as focusing as described by entropy.
Then he felt his senses expand.
However, by raising the five senses by 2 points, the scope of attention expanded much wider.
It seemed to have crossed at least 1,000m.
‘Okay, if it’s about 1km, it’ll be okay… Ah!’
Jeong Dae-sik realized the existence of a monster approaching from the northwest as soon as he used Zhou’s Expansion.
Whether it was a worm, a wyvern, or a Grand Mall, I couldn’t tell.
However, it was certain that it was a monster, so Jeong Dae-sik turned around and shouted.
“A monster is coming! You must avoid it!”
Hearing these words, Kim Si-on got up hurriedly from his seat.
Yoo Tae-hoon also stood up groaning, and Park Mu-won carried him.
Jeong Dae-sik also wrapped his head around the small head, and hurriedly took the lead and said.
“From now on, I will guide you.”
Strictly speaking, the person who had to take the lead was the commander and unit commander, Kim Si-on.
However, as she was injured, her condition was not a horse, and she did not object.
The other crew members also silently agreed as if Jeong Dae-sik should lead the unit.
Jeong Dae-sik immediately moved to his feet.
“Then let’s go.”
Jeong Dae-sik walked avoiding monsters with his extended ability.
As a result, they naturally went beyond the boundaries that they had to follow.
Kim Si-on saw them crossing the border and entering the realm of a certain monster through the map and stopped Dae-sik Jeong.
“Wait! Where are you going now?”
Jeong Dae-sik looked back and said.
“You’re walking avoiding monsters.”
Kim Si-on frowned.
“If this is the case, we will enter the realm of monsters. Also, it is easy to cross over with the team that is coming to rescue us. We have to follow the boundaries…”
“Monsters appear even in the border. Where was the worm attacked? It was the border? There is no guarantee that it is safe between the territory of the monster and the territory. The territory of the monster does not mean that it is dangerous. Unless there are combat personnel It’s best to avoid the silver monsters.”
It was a situation where you shouldn’t fight monsters.
If even a mere worm encountered a disaster, it was difficult to avoid.
As such, Kim Si-on could not refute Jeong Dae-sik’s words.
Jeong Dae-sik smiled in an attempt to reassure her.
“Don’t worry. I have the ability to detect monsters. I also have psychic abilities, right? Rescue teams can find them too, so don’t worry and follow me.”
Kim Si-on didn’t ask why he didn’t use that ability right away.
It’s knowing that it’s not the situation to pry for something like that.
He was also aware that he had lost his command ability since he was injured.
Now Jeong Dae-sik was leading the crew, and Kim Si-on shouldn’t have influenced it.
Only when everyone accepts Jeong Dae-sik’s command with one mind and one accord can they escape from this place.
“…I see. I only trust you.”
Jeong Dae-sik nodded and went straight ahead.
And Kim Si-on put the map in and didn’t even look at it.
Tired of following the crew, you may not have noticed, but they were moving quite chaotically.
There were literally monsters everywhere, and it happened because I tried to avoid them one by one.
If you choose the wrong path, you may encounter monsters inevitably, but Jeong Dae-sik did his best not to fall into such a situation.
In fact, I was so tired that I couldn’t even speak.
I’m constantly on the verge of using attention extension, and the pressure of taking on everyone’s lives.
From the smallest detail to the small head on his back.
Nothing was difficult.
If I was alone, I could have pulled myself out of my body…
Jeong Dae-sik knew that the presence of the crew was a burden to him.
But on the other hand, he also knew that he was not giving up because of their presence.
If they had just met through the last minute, that is, they had seen each other once and never saw each other twice, they might not have put so much effort into it.
But Jeong Dae-sik was no longer alone.
He clearly belonged to the Titan raid, and they were currently the responsibility of Daesik Jeong.
A long time has passed.
They walked for a time when it felt too far away to feel.
Occasionally he rested, but he never lay down and slept or was sober.
Jeong Dae-sik didn’t let him do that, and he continued to walk and walk, encouraging the crew who were falling behind.
About 12 hours, about half a day, they walked among the monsters.
Without noticing it, a distant darkness fell.
The dungeon had thousands or tens of thousands of shapes, and among them, the sun continued to rise and bright, and some were enveloped in pitch-black darkness.
There were two moons, or stars the size of a fist dangling from one another, and the sun rose and set at a time unit different from that of the Earth.
So the sun set and night came in the dungeon.
This dungeon was longer than the day.
Therefore, it was the first night we met after entering the dungeon.
As night fell, the temperature rapidly dropped, and as the vision darkened, Jeong Dae-sik’s attention also fell rapidly.
They could not turn on the lights because they could summon monsters.
Fortunately, the emerald-colored stones scattered throughout gave off a bright light at night.
Relying on it, the crew hurriedly walked on their immovable legs.
The conversation has long since disappeared.
Jeong Dae-sik thought that the military smell was coming out of his mouth.
I realized that fact because I was talking to myself.
He muttered when he finally found what he was looking for.
