– Volume 4 Episode 20
The floor sloped rapidly and the crew slid down to no avail.
Jeong Dae-sik hurriedly put a dagger in it, grabbed it, and hung it.
Sogangdu thrust his hands and feet into the wall, a living creature, with his supernatural power.
Seeing what Dae-sik Jeong and Gang-doo So were doing, Ki Cheol-min also put his long sword deep.
Then, Si-on Kim blew a black scallop and wrapped it around it, and grabbed Mi-rae Heo’s waist as she fell.
Heo Mi-rae screamed as she hung on Kim Si-on’s side, then suddenly came to her senses and used her abilities again.
Ki Chul-min and Kim Si-on’s bodies floated up and their behavior became free.
Seeing that they were safe, Jeong Dae-shik withdrew his interest from there and saw the floor rising endlessly.
Now in front of them stood a huge cliff that completely covered the sky.
Dozens of large snow were lodged in the cliff.
Soon, dozens of tentacles opened their snouts.
Previously, the hole was open like a cave, but now, smaller tentacles like suckers are densely attached to the periphery of the mouth.
With it, Cyclopes began groping around the cliffs, which it believed to be a face.
He stuttered, and from a human point of view, he was almost crushed by a sucker.
It’s like a ephemera stuck on a person’s face.
Seeing Sogang-doo screaming at the sucking sucker, Jeong Dae-sik thought that he could not delay any longer.
They made me so mad, I didn’t know they would all die if I didn’t find the heart and burst it.
Jeong Dae-sik summoned entropy, prepared to upgrade the observation level, and looked around with his eyes wide open.
‘Shit! If this is just a face, isn’t the body with the heart still buried deep underground?’
Jeong Dae-sik, who looked down, suffering from the feeling of being a mere insect, finally found what he was looking for.
The sound of a slow, heavy beating sounded faintly in my ears.
The source of the sound was deep underground, where the body of the Cyclopes was buried.
I couldn’t see it with the naked eye, but I could see a glimmer of light there.
In the middle of the blue shadows, there was a flash of red light.
‘That blue light is the monster’s strength, and the red light must be its weakness!’
It seemed that the heart, the weakness of the Cyclopes, was surrounded and protected by a solid skeleton.
Seeing that it was marked in blue, it looked like it would be very difficult to break.
Besides, what Jeong Dae-shik is looking at is the information displayed by his observation skill.
In reality, neither the heart nor anything surrounding it could be recognized.
It was covered by the thick flesh and skin of the Cyclopes.
Even so, it was located in the basement with its mouth wide open as black as an abyss.
Seeing that scene, Jeong Dae-sik lost confidence in his attack power.
‘Even if you upgrade your skills, will you be able to finish everything in one hit?’
Descend into the dark basement, dig into the Cyclopes’ chest, shatter the bones, and shatter the heart!
For such a huge monster, the size of the heart alone would be bigger than that of Jeong Dae-shik.
It’s meant to be finished with one punch.
‘Reckless, this is reckless.’
In a brief moment, fifty thousand thoughts ran through my mind.
All sorts of things are regrettable and the anxiety that I will not be able to do it has choked my throat.
But there was no time.
He had already caused Cyclopes to expose his weakness.
If you don’t do it, nobody else can do it.
I had to.
‘Hey, damn it!’
Jeong Dae-sik swears inwardly and pulls out his dagger.
His body plummeted down, and in an instant, he passed his comrades, who were flying to and fro avoiding the suckers.
And soon, Jeong Dae-sik’s body was sucked into the cracks in the ground and disappeared.
‘I can’t see anything!’
For a moment I thought that my vision was engulfed in darkness.
Jeong Dae-sik used observation skills with a short activation time one after another.
Then, in the midst of falling, the weak point of Cyclopes, which was clearly marked in red, surrounded by blue, was clearly visible in front of him.
There was no hesitation because it was falling.
Jeong Dae-sik turned his body in mid-air and kicked the falling rocks.
So he took the direction and raised his fists forward and shouted.
Ganghwado, powerfulkwondo, each level has been raised to two levels.
When I put them together and extended my fist, I could feel all the magic in my body being concentrated there.
Great suction power as if life and soul were all sucked in!
Then, the fists with concentrated magical power blazed like a shooting star.
It seemed to burn Jeong Dae-shik’s bones and muscles, even the thin layer of fat and skin.
Jeong Dae-sik shouted in the illusion that his fist was exploding.
At the same time, his fist touched Cyclopes’ body, and his magic power exploded.
The darkness of the underground was torn apart by the brilliance of the exploding magical power, and the tough and pale skin of Cyclopes was split open like dozens of blades.
It immediately split in all directions as if exploding, spouting blood and flesh, and shattered even the bones exposed inside.
A lump of red blood was wriggling in the place where it had broken into dozens of pieces like glass was shattered.
It was the heart of Cyclopes.
The skeleton that protected it was broken, and the exposed organs were powerless.
Jeong Dae-sik’s powerful power reached there.
His fist pierced the heart that was hidden in the most secret and deepest part of Cyclopes’ huge body.
His heart exploded with a binge, and Adamant Knuckle emitted a sharp flash of shock.
In the aftermath, Jeong Dae-sik flew through the air.
His body rolled in the air like a leaf in a cold wind.
I should have come to my senses and put my body somewhere and stood upright, but I had no strength to do so.
I felt exhausted all over my body as if something went wrong while I was using the fortified force.
It was dark in front of his eyes, and Jeong Dae-sik lost his mind, thinking, ‘It shouldn’t be like this’.
Chapter 23. Structure
Jeong Dae-sik woke up with a soft moan.
What he saw in front of him was an unfamiliar ceiling.
It looked like he was lying in a wide tent.
It looked like the barracks the hunters used to set up at the base camp when they went hunting.
When I lifted my gaze to the side in a subtle sense of incongruity, I saw Ringer’s line.
It was then that Jeong Dae-sik raised his arm and saw that the needle had been stuck in the back of his hand.
I wondered what ringer it was, and when I tried to pull it out, I heard an unexpected voice.
“There’s not much left. It’s all right, isn’t it?”
Jeong Dae-sik turned his head and realized later that he was not alone.
Surprisingly, Choi Hee was sitting in a small chair next to the bed in the barracks.
Jeong Dae-sik was startled and sat up.
“No, how are you here…?”
Choi Hee raised her hand as if to stay still.
She saw Jeong Dae-sik leaning on the bed and slowly opened her mouth.
“I just got the news here and just came in with the rescue team.”
When she saw Jeong Dae-sik, she was using respectful words again.
It was a completely different atmosphere from when I told him whether he was an all-in-one.
Jeong Dae-sik was polite and said accordingly.
“Oh, right? How long have I been asleep?”
Jeong Dae-sik talked with her and regained his memory.
Obviously, after receiving a blow to the heart of Cyclopes, he suddenly ran out of energy and lost consciousness.
Then, when he came to his senses, he could only imagine that he had been unconscious for quite some time because of this situation.
Considering that this was a barracks and not a hospital, there was a high possibility that it was still in the dungeon, which meant that someone from the investigation team had gone out and called the rescue team.
It must have taken quite some time for them to arrive, so I guessed that it had been stretched out for at least ten days.
However, Choi Hee’s answer was unexpected.
“About half a day? I’ve been fainting for quite some time.”
“No… didn’t that happen quickly enough? I saw you here and thought you were motionless for at least a day or two.”
“We knew what was going on here before the investigative team first sent a rescue call, so we were able to get in sooner than expected.”
“If what happened here, you mean disappearance?”
Jeong Dae-sik tilted his head in wonder.
Choi Hee licked her lips as if to say something.
“…it would be better to see for yourself.”
She took her phone out of her arms and tried to show it to her.
Then, “Oh!” He let out a noise and blamed himself for his stupidity.
“Yeah, there’s no internet here…”
Choi Hee sighed and put her phone back into her arms and said.
“I found out through streaming. Did I say Dongil Na?”
“Yeah, that’s right. He’s a waver who travels freely through radio waves. The person who was swallowed in the stomach of Cyclopes was broadcasting his situation in real time. There was.”
The investigative team looking for them was inside the dungeon, so they had no idea what video was being uploaded online.
However, it seems that the attack on Titan has been turned upside down.
They knew that a member of the Titan raid and famous BJ Na Dong-il had been eaten by a monster and isolated, so they quickly assembled a rescue team including Choi Hee.
“Surprisingly, when I arrived, Cyclopes had already been slain. I heard from Mr. Kim Si-on. I heard that you broke the heart of Cyclopes with an absurd attack?”
“Thanks to you, I lost consciousness and fell out.”
Jeong Dae-sik reflected on the situation in which his eyes became dark.
I don’t know how my colleagues found me as I fell, but I might have died without them.
‘I’ve used the Power of Strengthening Forces countless times over the years, but this was the first time I’ve ever had something like this. After all, is it because the level has been upgraded one step at a time?’
Jeong Dae-sik’s condition must not have been able to keep up with casting the enhanced powerful force with increased power.
The price of status points was too high, so I’ve been holding out with 22 strength and 35 magic power all the time.
‘I’ll have to buy some status points soon. But what if the price is rising more and more?’
After putting that thought aside, Jeong Dae-sik asked.
“Now that Cyclopes has been slain, the missing must have been rescued, right?”
Hearing that question, Choi Hee’s expression darkened.
“No, we can’t even figure out the location, let alone rescue.”
“You can’t even find it?”
“Cyclopes is too huge. Besides, most of its body is buried underground, so it’s impossible to pinpoint its exact location.”
“You mean you don’t even know it?”
