Kim Yoo-Na arrived quicker than he expected.

Even though Hyun-Soo took the long way home, she was standing in front of his place and waiting for him.

Under the dimly lit street lights, there were a couple of shadows, which surprised Hyun-Soo.

‘No way…?’

He was afraid that someone was following him, so he purposely went to different transfer stations since there were usually a lot of people.

He thought they still followed him despite that.

There were other people besides Kim Yoo-Na in front of his house.

He thought she came by herself but there were a group of large men wearing suits.

“I brought back-up just in case. You can trust all of them and they’re very skilled. So, don’t worry about what happens out here.”

Even though he didn’t ask for it, she knew of his concern and introduced him to the people around her to calm him down.

She knew exactly what he was worried about.

“Since the situation turned out this way, if it’s okay with you, I would like to meet your parents and convince them. There won’t be any issues as long as I’m here, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.”

“Thank you.”

“I’m just helping out. Let’s go inside.”

Hyun-Soo wanted to quickly go inside, so he thanked her quickly and she nodded her head.

‘…I think I heard something odd.’

However, he was in a hurry to go inside, so he ignored it.

And then.

Most of the monsters were big.

That meant that there were a lot of spots that a hunter could attack.

However, compared to a monster, Hyun-Soo was small.

Which meant their target shrunk when compared to their usual opponent.

‘Two of them use fire. One uses water and another is holding a sword…’

Excluding the close-range hunter, the remaining were long-range hunters, but they couldn’t hit Hyun-Soo.

Swoosh!

Fwoosh, fwoosh!

The sound of skills passing by him and landing on the floor filled the training room.

‘If it was me, I would attack with the close-range hunter first and move them to a spot where a long-range hunter is prepared to attack.’

But they couldn’t do that.

He wasn’t sure whether they weren’t doing it or if they weren’t capable of doing it, but as of right now, they probably weren’t capable.

“Why isn’t it hitting him?!”

“Are you sure he’s an E rank?”

“Water Peak!”

“Fwoosh! Fwoosh!

Splash! Splash!

The skills that didn’t hit Hyun-Soo landed on the ground.

“Die!”

Swoosh!

With a shout, he used his fist to attack.

‘I’m telling you, you’re slow.’

“Park Jung-Ho! What are you doing here?”

“Oh, hey.”

‘Huh?’

Someone suddenly approached their table and greeted Park Jung-Ho.

Park Jung-Ho greeted them with a surprised look.

They probably wanted to make it look natural, but in Hyun-Soo’s eyes, it looked like they set this up.

“I thought you were with a girl, but I guess not. Who’s this?”

“Oh…he’s, the guy that I told you about before.”

“The guy? Oh, I’ve heard a lot about you from Jung-Ho. Thanks to you, I got a lot of help last time. While the other attackers were down, Jung-Ho was the last one standing so we were able to complete the hunt. What were you guys talking about?”

The man sat down as if they were friends.

However, he sat next to Hyun-Soo, not Park Jung-Ho.

‘…What’s up with this guy?’

He managed to wrap-up their conversation and was about to get up, but his plan was ruined.

‘Interface!’

His main goal was to create a comfortable environment for his parents since they wanted to keep working.

In order to do that, he had to find out,

“The business district.”

Since he was saving money to provide a more luxurious life for his parents, he felt proud and accomplished.

“Okay, I’ll make sure to provide my parents a more luxurious life!”

***

“Damn, it’s really cold.”

When he stepped outside, it was really windy.

It felt like the wind contained sharp pieces of ice and it was blowing in all directions.

‘Where should I go first?’

Before stepping out, there were a couple of areas he thought about.

Hyun-Soo headed towards the underground subway to go to one of those locations.

It was located in front of a college in Seoul.

When he walked out, he noticed that there were a lot of students hanging around despite the cold weather.

‘It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve come out.’

Hyun-Soo didn’t really go out much. It’s because he went hunting with Kim Yoo-Na.

‘Well, I did go out since I have to go hunting, but it’s been a while since I’ve been relaxed like this.’

It was difficult for him to be relaxed because he would always run between his part-time jobs.

After he became a hunter, he was desperate to have steady lifestyle, so he didn’t have the chance to relax.

Even after meeting Kim Yoo-Na, he couldn’t really relax because he was busy hunting in different portals.

Well, he came out here for a reason, so it wasn’t like he was able to relax.

In order to check the area, it was best to go there.

The buildings around it and how it’s placed.

The population.

‘I think today had the most English I’ve heard in my entire life.’

It was possible since Hyun-Soo didn’t really like English.

As soon as he finished the second hunt, Katrina’s eyes started sparkling brightly.

He didn’t know why she was acting like that, but it was very flattering.

However.

‘…It’s so burdening. Ah, really burdening.’

Honestly, he wished that she would stop looking at him.

‘But I have a feeling that she’ll keep coming out with Kim Yoo-Na.’

Katrina had a pretty bubbly personality, but if there was something she didn’t like, she really didn’t like it.

At first, she completely ignored him and even disliked him, but now, she was like a puppy that followed their owners around.

‘Now that I think about it, I haven’t collected anything.’

Because Katrina came up to him right after he finished, he forgot about collecting the items.

After that, she kept on following him and he tried to quietly run away since he was burdened by her, but everything somehow ended.

‘There wasn’t anything that caught my eyes when I walked in, so this is pretty disappointing.’

It was weird to start looking for items like he did with Kim Yoo-Na before because Katrina was continuously looking at him.

‘Everything else is fine, but that’s a bit too much.’

No, other things made him uncomfortable too.

‘Well, she did provide new options, so I’ll just let it go.’

The method that Katrina offered.

If it was possible, his parents wouldn’t have to forcefully move overseas and he wouldn’t feel as bad about leaving them.

‘The problem is how much I can trust Kim Yoo-Na…’

Hyun-Soo was the one responsible for improving Hye-Na’s condition.

He somewhat had the advantage.

On top of that, Hyun-Soo witnessed her personality.

Kyahhhh!

The mole let out a loud cry as it was falling to the ground.

‘Invisible Attack!’

Hyun-Soo materialized the skill into a ball and threw it towards the falling mole.

Boom!

Bam!

Kyahh!

Due to the impact of the fall as well Hyun-Soo’s attack, it screamed out loud.

Kyah…h…

Due to the shock, it lost its conscious and after he saw that, a smile appeared on Hyun-Soo’s face.

‘It worked just as I thought.’

He immediately created a skill that looked like a fang.

‘Invisible Attack! Cut it!’

And he released the attack towards the mole that was shaking on the ground.

His target was the white light that was on the mole’s eye.

Towards its weakness.

Fwoosh!

Hyun-Soo’s skill cut through the slim opening.

The sound of skin cutting and something soft exploding could be heard clearly.

At the same time, the mole screamed in pain.

Kyahh! Kyahhhhhh! Kyah!

As the mole rolled its body around violently, it tried to find a way to escape.

Instead of attacking Hyun-Soo with its long nails, it started digging instead.

Their body was halfway into the hole, but Hyun-Soo wasn’t in a rush.

“Where do you think you’re going?”

He created a skill that looked like a hook and hooked the mole’s back.

Perhaps it’s because he attacked its weakness, but his attacks were working well.

Kyahhhh! Kyah!

He didn’t have any trouble maintaining one skill.

Hyun-Soo pulled out the mole using the hook that he created.

The mole tried not to get pulled and sound of them clawing the ground could be heard.

When they were thrown into the air, their flailing was useless.

He felt bad for the monster after seeing blood flow out of its eye.

‘It’s funny that I’m feeling bad for a monster, but…’

Hyun-Soo decided to end it quickly.

Swoosh!

Kyah…h!

Thud! Boom!

The blade that Hyun-Soo threw cut through the mole’s neck.

The mole stopped moving and their cry stopped as well.

He finished them off with one attack.

Blood was spouting out of its body and its head dropped to the ground.

‘They really did become blood red, just like their name.’

Their red fur was soaked in their blood.

“Whew…”

He leveled up and even felt that he became stronger.

There was no reason for him to dislike it.

“I’ll calculate today’s work and send it to you. Oh, and the payment for the blue portal, did you get it?”

“Yes.”

He didn’t get as much as he expected.

He thought they would offer three times more since there were three monsters, but that wasn’t the case.

On top of that, foreign hunters receive more.

‘Maybe that’s why. Anyways, I was pretty disappointed.’

Honestly, it was a good amount, but since there were a lot of things he had to spend it on, he couldn’t help but be disappointed.

“For the monster that you killed today, since you leveled up, I’ll give you all of it. Or, do you prefer taking the Energy Stone instead?”

“No, please deposit it to my account.”

Right now, money was more important to him.

‘Will it be possible if I add the money I received from the blue portal?’

On top of that, he hunted several of them.

‘The more there are, the better.’

When he thought about all the money that was going to come in, his tiredness went away.

“Hyun-Soo, have you thought about the offer?”

Kim Yoo-Na asked in the car while driving.

“…I did, but I haven’t made a decision yet.”

It’s only been a couple of days and she was already asking for an answer.

‘Well, making a decision as soon as possible is better. If I do end up following Kim Yoo-Na, there’s no point in buying my parents a store.’

But, he hasn’t decided at all.

He couldn’t just sit there and contemplate about it all day.

He decided to do what he could for now and decide later on.

‘It won’t be too late to decide then anyways.’

His head would start hurting every time he thought about it. It’s because there were a lot of things he had to consider.

‘If they do come, I’ll show them just how badly I’ll beat them up.’

The only problem was that they would be in a group.

On top of that, Hyun-Soo had a family.

‘It’s common sense not to mess with ordinary people, but who knows if they’ll have that common sense.’

That’s why he couldn’t expect them to appear all of a sudden.

If something happened to his family, that would be the worst-case scenario.

‘It would be better if I follow Kim Yoo-Na and go overseas…’

The problem was that his parents wouldn’t agree with going.

That day when Kim Yoo-Na and Eugene recruited him.

When he came home, his parents were there.

“You’re here?”

“You’re here, Hyun-Soo?”

Hyuna walked to the front door first and greeted him.

Behind her, his mother asked if he ate.

When he said he did, his mother said,

“You’ve been really tired lately, huh? I’ll cut some fruits, so go wash up.”

And told Hyun-Soo to go wash up.

It was hard to tell what the main point of the conversation was.

‘Is she saying that I’m doing a good job because I get along with Hye-Na and am doing well in training?’

The conversation was heading towards a different direction.

Then, Hyun-Soo suddenly thought of something.

“If you’re thinking that I’m misunderstanding your kindness for romantic feelings, you don’t have to worry about that. I don’t think about that at all.”

I’m past that stage where I think a girl likes me because she’s nice to me.

‘I don’t even have the time to think about dating.’

On top of that, his opponent was Kim Yoo-Na.

An A rank hunter with the class name, Fiery Attacker.

Kim Yoo-Na looked cold and haughty.

However, she had a passionate and emotional side.

On top of that, she was pretty enough to make heads turn.

Any guy would’ve at least imagined being in a relationship with her.

Because of that, there are times when Hyun-Soo is surprised whenever he looks at her.

‘I’m not Buddha or anything…’

However, Hyun-Soo purposely didn’t think about it.

He didn’t have the energy to be in a relationship and his head would get complicated if he thought about it.

He tried to make this relationship strictly business, but he was only human so he couldn’t help the fact that they were getting closer.

‘I’m sure she was saying it based on our business relationship. It seems like she was really worried that I might misunderstand.’

Hyun-Soo relaxed the confused Kim Yoo-Na.

“If that’s the case, I didn’t misunderstand at all, so don’t worry.”

“Oh, well you see…”

Kim Yoo-Na was about to say something, but she released a deep sigh.

“Thank you for understanding.”

It sounded like she was disappointed.

‘I’m sure I’m imagining things.’

Hyun-Soo thought he was being delusional and didn’t think much of it.

As a human being, he did like Kim Yoo-Na.

He received a lot of help..

While drinking the traditional cinnamon punch, Eugene started talking.

On the other side of him, Brad was drinking the punch from the teakettle.

‘They’re kind of weird.’

“Kim Hyun-Soo, what’s your relationship with Yoo-Na?”

“I’m sorry?”

“Eugene!”

As soon as Eugene asked the question, Kim Yoo-Na yelled out his name and glared at him.

She was signaling him to be quiet.

If she gave Hyun-Soo that look, he would’ve immediately stayed quiet, but Eugene ignored her. Maybe it was because he was an A rank as well or that was just his personality.

“Don’t you think we have the right to know?”

“What are you talking about? Why does it matter to you guys?”

“What’s wrong, Kim Yoo-Na? How often do you think we get to see you? Do you think we’re asking because we don’t know the real reason as to why you’re staying here?”

“It’s Hye-Na…….”

“I know that’s not the only reason. Let’s talk about that later.”

Hyun-Soo just watched them talk back and forth.

‘Huh? Didn’t they use me as an excuse to talk to Kim Yoo-Na?’

It was suddenly about him.

But, the conversation was a bit weird.

‘My relationship with her…it’s just business.’

A give and take relationship.

We give each other what we need.

“I’ve been receiving a lot of help from her. I’ve been learning how to hunt and have been training as well.”

I’m not sure what you’re wanting to hear, so I prepared a generalized answer.

Was what Hyun-Soo was feeling.

‘There’s no reason to explain the details. I won’t gain anything from it anyways.’

Kim Yoo-Na didn’t try to get information out of Hyun-Soo, but he wasn’t sure about the others.

But, since they were on the same team as her, they probably weren’t all that bad, however, there was no need to explain the details.

‘The ways she’s glaring is telling me not to say anything, so I better keep my mouth shut.’

Kim Yoo-Na was wanting Hyun-Soo to not talk.

When Hyun-Soo gave a generalized answer, Eugene changed the subject.

“It hasn’t been that long since you’ve become a hunter, right? But, you’re leveling up pretty quickly.”

“It’s most likely because Kim Yoo-Na has been helping me out a lot.”

“Ha ha. We all know how great of a teacher Yoo-Na is.”

It felt like they were just going around in circles.

‘What is he trying to find out?’

It felt like he was just going around in circles instead of getting to the core of the conversation.

“It hasn’t been a year since you’ve become a hunter, but you’ve already leveled up, right?”

“…Yes. Because Kim Yoo-Na guided me.”

“But, I know Yoo-Na isn’t that nice. Shall I give you an example? Let’s say you ask her to open the cap of a bottle that hasn’t been opened yet. She’ll open it once for you. However, if you keep asking her, she’ll teach you so that your arm has enough strength to open it and will tell you to keep practicing until you can do it on your own.”

‘Wow, he’s on point.’
