– Volume 4 Episode 24
Jeong Dae-sik opened his mouth wide at the unexpected story.
Seeing his reaction like that, Jeongyeon Lee laughed as if it was funny.
“Most monsters are poisonous, so they are not suitable for consumption. But as you know, there are many types of monsters. Some are suitable for eating. Some are very beneficial to health. In the case of the United States, research in this area has already progressed considerably.”
“Anyway… How do you eat monsters?”
“Oh, you don’t know. There’s no such thing as dragon meat, so it’s almost impossible to sell.”
Among hunters, he knew that dragon meat had greater value than diamonds.
However, when he was a porter, he was thinking of it as stamina and food.
It is the human psychology to eat anything if it is good for the body.
However, Jeong Dae-sik was averse to eating monster meat. It wasn’t just because of the myth that the hunters who were isolated in the dungeon and ran out of food became monsters by eating monster meat. In fact, among the porters, they heard strange rumors and ate monster meat and died or fell ill.
“Most of all, there is no need to breed monsters on Earth. If you can secure a safe dungeon, you can breed it there. Farming the dungeon. Of course, there will be periodic boss mobs and attack problems, but at least it can be used as a garbage dump. In fact, it is said that imported waste is publicly thrown away from India and Iran. Japan and Russia are also thinking of dumping nuclear waste, which was a troublesome mass, in dungeons.”
“No, do you mean that you know how monsters will react to radiation and do such dangerous things? It’s a well-known fact that monsters are stronger than humans to radiation? …..”
“It’s just that there is such a discussion. What I want to say is… you hunters think of monsters as enemies to be killed and you don’t know what kind of demon den you think of dungeons, but the outside view is different. Sooner or later, dungeons It could be a silver gold mine. If you want to make money, it’s good to be aware of this trend.”
Should I say that I am adaptable quickly or that I am not afraid?
Jeong Dae-sik thought that humans were confused about whether they were wise or stupid.
It hasn’t been many years since the first Monster Break happened.
It’s only been 10 years since the world of extended reality began.
But the world was changing rapidly, and the pace seemed to be accelerating.
‘Certainly, unlike the first monster break, there was no impact at the second monster break last time. People have already gotten used to monsters. It’s come to the point of thinking of it as a way to make money.’
Aside from the strange feeling of not knowing what it was, I felt like I was making money.
If a monster-related business takes place, of course, the person who possesses information about the monster will be able to take the lead.
It must have been for the same reason that other countries, including Korea, began to raise their enthusiasm for research on monsters.
Jeong Dae-sik thought about his sensible ability.
‘If you continue to upgrade your observation skills, you will be able to obtain a lot of information without having to research and catch monsters. It’s not just observation. If you acquire more efficient skills through the shop upgrade, you will be able to identify monsters faster than anyone else and use that information.’
Jeong Dae-sik kept his mouth shut, thinking that if he had a chance, he should study this part.
The time had come for the vehicles in front of him to pass through the dungeon and the Jeep Jeong Dae-sik was riding through.
After a chilling feeling as if all senses disappeared at once, the next moment, Jeong Dae-sik was outside the dungeon.
And I was surprised.
The entrance to the dungeon was about to burst with people.
Most of the dogs were reporters who came out to cover the story.
A photo line was installed at the entrance of the dungeon, and there were a lot of reporters standing outside with cameras.
The flash went off non-stop, almost blinding my eyes.
‘What kind of mess is this?’
I heard that the public was paying attention to Na Dong-il, but I didn’t know it was that much.
No, even for that reason, it’s a bit strange.
Na Dong-il and Choi Sun-sun, the main characters of this disappearance case, had been taken out of the dungeon before.
They must have been rushed to the hospital, so the reporters had to follow them.
But he still couldn’t figure out why he was encamped here.
Seeing the bewildered Jeong Dae-sik, Lee Jeong-yeon whistled and blew.
“You’re very passionate about coverage? Jeong Dae-sik, I’m going to have to work hard today.”
“Yes? Why me?”
To Jeong Dae-sik, who was puzzled, Lee Jeong-yeon said as if she was asking because she really didn’t know.
“Are all these people here to see Jeong Dae-sik?”
“If not, why are you doing this all the time?”
As it turned out, all the attention of the reporters was focused on this side.
Jeong Dae-sik suddenly felt uncomfortable in his stomach.
It was the first time in my life that I had received the attention of so many people.
Despite closing the window, he was nervous and his head was dazed and his expression hardened.
The vehicles of the Titan raid were unable to get out of the road due to the crowds surrounding the entrance to the dungeon.
After the jeep stood in place for a while, the photo line crumbled down.
As the police who were controlling the reporters did not know what to do, the reporters clinged to the car in which Jeong Dae-sik was riding like a swarm of ants.
“Jung Dae-sik! Lower the window, please!”
“Show me your face, Daesik Jeong!”
“Just one word please!”
“Wait a minute, please answer the interview!”
All the cars were shaken at the reporters’ requests like the deterioration.
The other crew members who didn’t see got out of the car and tried to push the reporters away, but they were as strong as if they had boiled some wild ginseng.
It hurt my ears at the sound of their calls, and above all else, I felt like I couldn’t stand still because of the total chaos around me.
Jeong Dae-sik hardened his heart and opened the car door.
and got out of the car.
I don’t know why, but the moment he got out of the car, there was a moment of silence.
The reporters were silent at the same time, whether it was really not expected that Jeong Dae-sik would appear.
But for a while, the flashes went off incessantly, and reporters burst into mics, cell phones, and recorders, and started yelling at each other.
“Dae-sik Jeong! How did you find the missing people?”
“You said you dealt with the monsters that swallowed the missing, is that true?”
“Are there any chances of going all-in-one as a triplex?”
“You were a porter not long ago, but how did you suddenly become strong?”
I got out of the car and stood in front of the reporters, but I didn’t know what to say first.
It was my first time to appear in front of the press, and I was not very talkative, so it was really difficult.
But then, suddenly, the reporters split on both sides like the miracle of Moses.
When I looked up for some reason, to my surprise, Choi Hee was walking between them.
She stood next to Jeong Dae-sik, who was surprised.
And with a dignified expression, he looked around the crowd once.
Truly, he had overwhelming charisma.
All the reporters shut their mouths at once in Choi Hee’s gaze.
They had been running wildly, but they became as meek as sheep.
Choi Hee, who took the initiative in an instant, smiled brightly when the reporters became quiet.
It was the million-dollar smile dedicated to Choi Hee that you often see on TV.
That smile brought a smile to the reporters’ lips, and Choi Hee spoke calmly.
“Thank you for your great interest and encouragement in this disappearance case, even in the midst of a lot of construction work. Thanks to the many people who have given hope, my younger sister Choi Choi and Na Dong-il, who is contributing to the hunter society, can be safely rescued. there was.”
Choi Hee bowed her head, and Jeong Dae Sik was also quiet, so she bowed her head slightly at the same time.
Then, Choi Hee raised her head and said with a wink at Jeong Dae Sik, who was standing next to her.
“Dae-sik Jeong here played a big role in the rescue operation. I have received indescribable grace. Thank you.”
Choi Hee took a step back and bowed her head politely to Jeong Dae-sik.
Jeong Dae-shik also hurriedly responded, and Choi Hee stayed there for a while as if waiting for reporters to take a picture.
Soon she raised her head again, looked around at the reporters, and continued.
“Mr. Daesik Jeong did his best to defeat powerful monsters and rescue the missing. He has just returned to Earth from a hellish place after accomplishing something that no one else could have done, so today is enough to go home and return home. You should get some rest, and the rest of the story can be heard at a later press conference at the Titan Raid Headquarters.”
The reporters did not respond much when they told me to ask questions at that time and let them go quietly today.
Choi Hee naturally turned around and opened the car door.
Jeong Dae-sik was drawn to her actions and got into the car on the road.
Then Choi Hee got on and closed the car door.
As soon as the traffic was cleared in front of the car, the cars started moving.
As the car drove off the road, Jeongyeon Lee saw Choi Hee and said with admiration.
“After all, you are amazing! Indeed, you are a superstar.”
Jeongyeon Lee faced Choi Hee up close and was a little excited.
Choi Hee gave her a light glance.
But for some reason, his face was very pale.
Sweat was dripping down on his forehead, and Jeong Dae-sik asked curiously.
“Where’s not good? The complexion…”
Choi Hee smiled helplessly and fell down on Jeong Dae-sik’s knee.
Jeong Dae-sik hurriedly hugged her and shouted.
“Mr. Choi-hee? Choi-hee, Choi-hee!”
Jeong Dae-sik, who had grabbed Choi-hee and shook it, raised his hand in shock.
The hand that touched her was drenched in blood.
Jeong Dae-sik, who wanted to know what was going on with this, soon realized the reason.
‘To save my sister…! You did it yourself to erase her own magical powers!’
Jeong Dae-sik bit his lip and then hurriedly started treatment.
However, his healing skills were of a poor level, so it was only a temporary measure.
He hurriedly shouted at the driver.
“Hurry to the hospital!”
