– Volume 4 Episode 21
As if Jeong Dae-sik’s retort seemed to be blaming him, Choi Hee wrinkled his beautiful forehead as if displeased.
“It’s true that I’m an SS-class hunter, but my abilities aren’t very well developed. If you kill the Cyclopes, you can do any number of them, but if you ask them to find someone, they won’t. As long as there is, I can’t blow up or dismantle Cyclopes’ body, so my abilities are meaningless in the present state.”
“Uh… um. That’s right. Don’t you think there’s an operator in the Titan Raid with excellent search skills?”
“There is, but he is currently on a business trip abroad. It will take some time to get back here. We are urgently looking for someone who can replace him, but I don’t know how long it will take. If I make a mistake… ..”
Choi Hee showed a very anxious look.
Jeong Dae-sik asked knowing that the situation was still urgent.
“Are they safe?”
“Thanks to you killing Cyclopes, digestion has stopped. The level of acid in the stomach where they are trapped is in place. But it’s a confined space and there’s not enough oxygen. I don’t know if I can last a few more hours right now. . The other crew members are poking around and searching the basement whenever they can, but there’s no hope at all.”
Only then did Jeong Dae-sik realize why Choi Hee was by his side in this urgent situation.
Then, Choi Hee grabbed Jeong Dae-sik’s hand and said earnestly.
“They… you’re the only one who can save my brother!”
‘You’re my brother? Come to think of it, Choi Hee, Choi Sun… they have similar names!’
The best atmosphere was so dark, I didn’t even think that Choi Hee and the sisters would be together.
However, I found out that they had a slender chin, a small mouth, and a body that was similar.
‘yes! Her sister was in this raid, so she was involved as an investor.’
I don’t know why I didn’t notice at all, but Choi Hee held his hand and showed tears.
“He’s the only one left in my family. I’ve only been through hard times so far. If he dies here like this, I… I…”
Jeong Dae-sik was a bit perplexed.
Who is Hee Choi?
The world’s most powerful man.
The only SS class hunter.
Isn’t she the goddess of the storm who drives thunder and lightning?
My heart ached when the woman, who had always had an arrogant and proud smile on her lips, showed tears like this.
Even if she had always been cold to Jeong Dae-sik, it could not be helped.
Jeong Dae-sik reached out his other hand and wiped Choi-hee’s tears.
“Don’t cry. My younger brother won’t die so easily. Whose younger brother is he? He’s Choi Hee’s younger brother, right?”
Jeong Dae-sik said in a light tone, and Choi Hee smiled slightly with a tearful face.
My heart was pounding even though I knew that this was not the time because it was so beautiful.
“Is that right? Are you holding up well?”
“Then are you going to find him?”
Jeong Dae-sik hesitated when he saw Choi Hee begging.
He wanted to say he would do whatever he wanted, but he couldn’t find the best with his current abilities.
Seeing him hesitating, Choi Hee clasped her hands tightly.
He clasped Jeong Dae-shik’s hand tightly so that it hurts.
“Don’t say you can’t. Only you can save my brother. The only hunter with all-in-one potential. If you are growing day by day, you will be able to find my brother somehow!”
Choi Hee changed and forced an answer.
Choi Hee had a rather fickle personality.
I didn’t know maybe it was so desperate that I couldn’t even be polite.
Jeong Dae-sik pursed his lips.
To be honest, I couldn’t do my best with the 1.77 billion won I currently have.
At most, it was only possible to upgrade a skill or a shop once.
However, no words came out of his mouth when he saw Choi Hee clinging to her with the feeling of catching straw.
“…I’ll try as hard as I can.”
Then, Choi Hee jumped up and grabbed Jeong Dae-sik’s shoulder with both hands this time.
“It’s not enough to try! Surely, by all means, rescue him!”
Saying that, Choi Hee’s eyes were burning brightly.
If you can’t do it, you’ll hear Amon’s resentment.
Buying the resentment of an SS-class hunter.
It was a situation I didn’t want to think about.
Jeong Dae-sik barely nodded his head in a somewhat burdensome feeling.
‘If that doesn’t work, borrow some money, okay? I said I’m going to use it to save my brother, so why shouldn’t I borrow it?’
Jeong Dae-sik let Choi-hee out and thought about it for a while.
If it didn’t work out, I borrowed money from Choi Hee and thought of doing something with the real thing, but doing so makes it difficult to hide the real power.
If you ask what lending money has to do with the best structure, there is no answer.
As long as the existence of Democritus had to be kept a secret, he had to keep the ability of Hyeonji a secret.
It is already attracting her attention due to the possibility of an all-in-one.
I didn’t know if I had explained everything in a clumsy way.
Most of all, there is no fashion sense!
Jeong Dae-sik has been living his life like never before, but he has lived without a single regret to others.
He didn’t have any money to buy rice, so he had to cook jang-tteok with flour and red pepper paste for a month, but he did not open his hands to anyone.
It was a way to keep his pride even in the bottom of his life, and it was the driving force that made him endure even in difficult situations.
But now, borrowing money from someone else… and also from a woman… Above all else, borrow money from Choi Hee.
It was something I really didn’t like.
No matter how much it was to save her brother, it was.
It was even more so because the amount was not even a penny or two.
It would be at least a few billions.
How do you borrow that much money?
‘I find a way within the amount I can afford. If you think well, you will surely come up with something.’
After thinking about it for a while, Jeong Dae-sik called entropy.
“Well, how to find the missing person I asked about last time.”
“Yeah, that. You said that you must first remember the characteristics of that magical power, right?”
Jeong Dae-sik asked nervously.
“Then, is it possible to find similar magic?”
The part that Jeong Dae-shik came up with was that Choi Hee and Choi Choi were sisters.
If the two are blood and blood, the characteristics of innate magical powers may also be similar.
Then, after acquiring a specific magic detection skill, remember Choi Hee’s magic, and find the magic that is similar to that as much as possible.
Then I thought it might be possible to find the best.
Entropy was silent for a moment in response to Jeong Dae-sik’s question.
Entropy, too, was silent for a moment, as if lost in thought, but only when Jeong Dae-sik urged him to open his mouth again.
“Maybe it’s possible? You mean you don’t know for sure?”
“Damn it, what’s going on?”
Jeong Dae-sik bit his lip and pondered.
With the amount he currently has, he was able to upgrade only one level after acquiring a certain magic detection skill.
Then, at the most, I was wondering if it would be useful to say that it was Lv2.
Alternatively, there is a way to acquire a better detection skill by upgrading the shop, but the question was whether such a skill existed by upgrading the shop by just one level.
This part was difficult because it could not be confirmed even through entropy.
If you upgrade the shop and don’t have those skills, you’re wasting money.
‘Still, should I walk to the side with a high probability?’
For now, I thought I should try the first method, said Jeong Dae-sik.
“Entropy, I will purchase a specific magic detection skill.”
“And upgrade it to the next level.”
Jeong Dae-sik checked the balance and groaned.
The remaining money is 760 million won.
In Jeong Dae-sik’s mood, it was as if he had gone bankrupt.
‘It’s not about making money. Spending so much money to find someone…’
Unlike other skills acquired so far, certain magic detection skills are not used in combat situations.
That is, there is no money.
Thinking like that, I was so sad that I almost died.
‘Damn… No, maybe this skill can show off his excellent ability to find missing people so he can earn extra income. Once you acquire it, won’t it be used anywhere?’
Jeong Dae-sik painstakingly comforted himself, returned entropy and went outside.
The hastily prepared base camp was very cluttered.
It was like hitting base camp.
Some of them had gathered in one place.
Jeong Dae-sik approached him and drew his neck long.
Then, over the shoulder of the people, the video they were watching caught my eye.
‘Choi Choi and Na Dong-il!’
On the dark screen, Na Dong-il’s sweat-stained face appeared.
He said with a look stained with discouragement, fatigue and fear.
– Nearly a day has passed since I came here. The gastric juice is no longer oozing out. Uh, like I said before, Choi Seon and I…
Having said that, Na Dong-il turned the camera aside for a moment.
There, Choi Sun-eun was sitting there with a sweat-stained face as well.
She glanced towards the camera once, but then turned her head away.
They seemed to be sitting in a hollow above the stomach wall.
A flash of light revealed a lumpy stomach that looked like a giant leather pouch, and at first glance, the bottom was full of stomach acid.
-The two of us tried to get out of here, but the stomach wall was so strong that we couldn’t even drill a hole in it. In fact, I wonder if there will be a way to get out of this monster’s body even if he rips his stomach out. I’m worried that if I make a mistake, I might drown in this guy’s blood. For now, the Titan Raid has started a rescue, so we’ll wait and see.
When Jeong Dae-sik heard that, he realized that Na Dong-il could not only broadcast his own situation live, but he could also see the external situation.
In other words, you are fully online.
However, it was shocking to hear that they were completely isolated and could not be rescued.
-I don’t know if it’s because of my mood, but it seems like it’s getting harder and harder to breathe. It’s probably a lack of oxygen. How much longer… I don’t know how long I’ll be able to see you like this. It would be nice if the titan raids could find us sooner. I don’t even know where I am, how long will it take…
