<First Successful Skill Sale – #2>
I wanted to become a hunter in order to earn money, but I can make money through this, there’s really no reason for me to participate in hunts.
‘But, honestly, I’m a bit tempted. It was my dream when I was younger. Maybe I still do want that. I’m not a little boy anymore, but there’s a something in me that wants to hunt like some kind of heroic hunter.’
This was different from money.
He’s only dreamed of obtaining a power like this when he was younger and now that he did have it, there’s no way he wouldn’t be tempted.
He did become a hunter in order to make money, but he remembered how he wanted to become a hunter when he was younger, and that feeling was still there.
That’s why he was tempted by Park Jung-Ho’s offer.
This was also a chance to get revenge on that healer.
But, Hyun-Soo was suspicious as to why Park Jung-Ho mentioned that healer.
‘But, it’s too good of an offer. There’s usually an ulterior motive in situations like this. He sounds like one of those internet companies where they offer you money to sign some sort of agreement.’
By using money as bait, they tell potential customers to use certain products for a certain period of time. Park Jung-Ho seemed like one of those people.
“Your offer sounds great, but what’s the reason for proposing it to me…?”
“It’s simple, really. You just have to give us all the scrolls that you acquire. Of course we’ll compensate you for them.”
“…There might come a time where I won’t be able to provide a scroll.”
“Of course. We’re not forcing you to obtain one. Just when you do obtain one! We ask that you sell it to us.”
He says it’s okay, but he looked like one of those lords that robbed people through taxes.
‘This doesn’t feel right.’
Well, it is odd for an official group to want to genuinely recruit Hyun-Soo.
He didn’t have any amazing and was merely a carrier.
That’s probably he was saying great things about his group…
‘Their goal is obtaining the scrolls.’
It was obvious.
He wasn’t exactly evil, but it wasn’t like he had good intentions either.
He was probably observing Hyun-Soo’s reaction.
“Thank you for the offer, but I’m not good enough to join an official group. Thank you though.”
“I’m not saying this because I’m part of it, but it’s a really great group.”
“I understand. Maybe in the future.”
When Hyun-Soo declined his offer, Park Jung-Ho had a disappointed look.
‘I’m sure he’s disappointed about not getting the scrolls.’
It was obvious.
It’d be a different story if the scroll was fake, but after checking its authenticity manually, he probably wanted to recruit him even more.
He knew that forcefully making Hyun-Soo join the group would backfire since he already declined his offer.
Park Jung-Ho thought Hyun-Soo had some sort of skill that he was hiding, but he decided to just let him go despite of his disappointment.
“That’s too bad. I hope we do meet again very soon.”
“Ha ha……. Yeah.”
“If you happen to have another scroll you want to sell, please let me know right away.”
“Ha ha ha……. Got it.”
Hyun-Soo was surprised by how persistent he was regarding the scrolls.
‘It’s like life or death for him.’
Despite of the fact that he’s given up on recruiting Hyun-Soo, Park Jung-Ho stared at him.
