The Skill Maker – Chapter 025

<A Fiery Attacker #1>

 

“Hurry up and attack it!”

Hyun-Soo’s shoulders started trembling due to the sharp scream.

But, he didn’t forget about his job.

“Mighty Throw!”

He used Mighty Throw, which was an offensive skill that still remained on his list.

With the help of the skill, the small dagger that was on the ground,

Kyahhhhhhh!!

Pierced right into the white light, which was the monster’s weakness.

“Finish it!”

“Got it! Mighty Throw!”

Hyun-Soo used the skill again after hearing the order.

Roaaaaaaaar! Kyahhhhh… kyahh…!

Hyun-Soo’s weapon kept on piercing the monster’s weak point as it shined brightly.

The monster must’ve felt tortured because it started running around widly.

Boom, boom!

The grey monster had a large body and the mutant rhinoceros was getting ready to charge.

Anyone that was near it would be stomped to death!

However, the person that was tanking was skillfully dodging the monster’s attacks.

‘No matter how I look at it, it’s amazing.’

Despite of using a critical attack on its weakness, the monster didn’t even look in his direction.

She wasn’t even a tanker.

‘She’s an amazing woman.’

She hasn’t aggravated the monster once.

It could be due to the difference in ranks, but Kim Yoo-Na looked like a goddess of war with the way she was controlling the flame.

Despite of seeing it a couple of times, he was amazed by it.

‘Besides the fact that she’s an A rank…Kim Yoo-Na. She’s an amazing woman.’

He was currently getting tutored on a one on one battle.

His goal was to increase his rank as quickly as possible.

That was it.

“Finish it!”

“Got it!”

Hyun-Soo used Mighty Throw again.

The sharp dagger pierced deeply into the white dot.

[Critical!]

<A Favor #2>

“Thankfully, after I became a hunter, I fed her all types of rare items that I obtained from the portal. I even grind an Energy Stone and to feed it to her. But, that could only do so much. She did improve for a moment, but that was the only time. In the end, she didn’t recover. The effects didn’t last long. And my sister is slowly dying. But.”

She stopped talking looked straight at Hyun-Soo.

“You. The scroll that you’re selling. If you have it, then it’ll be a different story.”

“In what way?”

Even though he asked, Hyun-Soo already knew the answer.

‘It said that a very small amount of the curing rate will be increased when it was beyond physical injuries. Technically, a rare disease can be considered as being beyond a physical injury. That’s why, if the basic curing rate was increased, then the disease will be healed too.’

In his mind, it was definitely a reasonable story.

As if she was thinking about the same thing, she looked at Hyun-Soo with an anxious expression.

“I beg you. Please sell that scroll to me. It doesn’t matter how much it costs. I’ll pay no matter how expensive it is.”

“Oh, well…….”

“Please.”

Hyun-Soo wasn’t sure what to do.

‘I told myself I would decline no matter what she said…….’

This woman was making him have second thoughts.

She was breaking down the decision he made.

It would’ve been different if it was for a different reason. But…

‘The person that needed it just happened to be her younger sister.’

If a hunter was making an offer so that they could use it during a hunt, he would’ve declined right away, but the woman talked about her family and her younger sister that had a rare disease.

Hyun-Soo felt uncomfortable because he cared about his family just as much as her.

If their parents became sick, Hyuna would do everything within her power to find a cure.

If someone knew of a way, then they would do whatever it took to get that information.

But, it’s not like he didn’t understand her desperation in trying to find a cure.

It was a problem because he could relate.

‘What should I do? It would’ve been easier if she was forceful about me selling it to her.’

If he helped her, it would violate the rules he set for himself, but declining it would make him feel guilty.

To him, his family was his weakness.

And this woman used that to get what she wanted.

“Whew……. This is quite difficult.”

He didn’t want give in, but seeing her trying to save a family member that was dying made things complicated.

“If I sell you a scroll, will that sister of yours be completely cured?”

“…That’s what I’m hoping. I’m desperate so I’m trying whatever I can get my hands on. If I used the scroll that you’re selling, then I believe there’s a higher chance. Since it’s a passive skill, an ordinary person like my sister can use it and the recovery rate is quite high and also, it recovers injuries that are beyond physical injuries.”

Despite of the fact that there weren’t any information regarding it, she knew exactly that it was a passive skill and that it can be used on an ordinary person.

Hyuna and his parents did have one or two passive skills that he made.

Well, no one would use a passive skill on an ordinary person anyways. And on top of that, it’s a recovery skill.

Hyun-Soo was probably the first one.

After leaving the palace-like house, Hyun-Soo was finally able to breathe comfortably.

It was a short meeting, but it felt like he went through a lot during that short time.

‘He’s not some ordinary old man. But, why did he like me so much? Is it because of his relationship with my father?’

For an unknown reason, the old man showed his kindness to the person that came to pay their debt.

But it wasn’t a bad feeling.

After shrugging his shoulders, Hyun-Soo looked back at the house.

‘It’s a nice place.’

There was a yard and it was a spacious house with privacy.

It was a two-story house, so there were a lot of rooms, and it was enough to keep his family’s life private.

Hyun-Soo wanted this house.

But, it was impossible in his current situation.

He didn’t have much since he used the money he saved up to pay off the debt, but he just needed to save a bit more.

“I’ve worked hard, but I’ll have to work harder. I need to give it to my parents and Hyuna anyways.”

That day, Hyun-Soo bought a large portion of Pork Hocks.

And he ate it with family while drinking soju with his parents.

When they heard that Hyun-Soo paid off all the debt, they were extremely surprised.

They asked how he knew about it and where he got the money from, but all Hyun-Soo did was smile.

His mother cried quietly while his father stood up from his seat.

Knowing that their mother felt bad and was also proud of Hyun-Soo, Hyuna wiped away the tears.

His father came back with tears in his eyes as well.

Without saying a word, his father patted Hyun-Soo’s shoulder.

That action alone said a lot.

Hyun-Soo knew what that meant.

Because they were a family.

<A New Skill #2>

 

Within minutes, people are discussing about what kind of effects this scroll provided.

‘It’s going well.’

Hyun-Soo looked at the screen with a satisfied expression.

In his hand, he had the item that other people wanted and he was in the position where he’s the only one that’s able to make them.

It was a very fascinating position.

‘This is why everyone wants to be the boss.’

People continued discussing amongst themselves.

They were even talking about how much it was worth.

The hunters that used Hunter Net said that if the scroll had the effects that they assumed, then it could be worth billions.

But since the detailed effects weren’t revealed in the post, the offers weren’t that high.

But he still managed to earn three times more than the last skill he sold.

“Thank you.”

“No, I should be the on thanking you.”

When the male buyer bowed his head, Hyun-Soo did the same and thanked him.

‘I thought a wealthy attacker would buy it.’

The male buyer that purchased it looked a bit old.

He wore a suit, so he seemed more like an employee at a company rather than a hunter.

Not being able to hold in his curiosity, Hyun-Soo ended up asking him regarding the reason for this purchase. Just from the looks of it, it didn’t look like he purchased it so that he could use it during a hunt.

<A New Skill #1>

 

‘I’ve gained a lot from making this skill. I also found out that my experience level increased whenever I made the skills.’

The first time he felt that something was different was when he was reading the medical and was trying to understand the information.

By remembering how the muscles were separated and the location of the bones, he massaged his mother.

Hyun-Soo’s massage was more of an acupressure therapy rather than an ordinary massage.

“Your massage skills are getting better and better.”

His mother complimented him as he massaged her muscles.

But Hyun-Soo was thinking about something else that he didn’t hear her.

‘Huh? What’s this?’

On his mother’s back, there were faint white dots floating around.

‘Isn’t this similar to the one that I saw on the Flower Spore?’

Hyun-Soo lightly pressed on the white dot and his mother commented by saying how good it felt and complimented him.

Hyun-Soo continued pressing on those dots.

He kept on pressing the dots rhythmically without thinking much and that’s probably why a skill wasn’t being made.

But when felt that something was off, he opened the Interface, he noticed that skill’s activation status had increased.

——————————

[Interface][SS][Inherent][Exclusive]

It provides a digital visualization of the user’s information and the opponent that the user targets.

Depending on the user’s will, it can activate.

It can’t be replicated since it’s an inherent, exclusive skill.

Activation Status : 1.6%

——————————

After defeating the Flower Spore, it increased by 0.4%, which put the Activation Status as 1.4%.

But after checking again, the interface increased by 0.2%, making it 1.6%.

Hyun-Soo also checked his stats.

“You’re not tired from all the studying?”
“Yeah, after you gave me a massage couple of times, I feel refreshed when I wake up in the morning.”
Since this was her last year in high school, she would mostly spend her time at her desk, causing her body to be really tired.
But, her health improved thanks to the Low Level Health Recovery skill.
Since it was a passive skill, even an ordinary person like Hyuna was able to experience a recovery rate of 7%.
Of course Hyuna would never know.
“That’s good. Just let me know whenever you need one. I’ll massage you every time you ask.”
When he made a joke, Hyuna giggled and said she would him know.
Making money by selling skills was fun, but he was relieved by the fact that his family’s condition was improving.
Even his parents didn’t look like they were going to pass out.
His mother has been in a good mood because the employees at the restaurant told her that she was looking better and whether she was using some sort of product.
“I’m not sure why, but they’re saying that I look a bit young.”
It was thanks to the skill.
When Hyuna returned to her room, Hyun-Soo was in a deep thought again.
He remembered how he obtained a skill after massaging his mother.
——————————
[Low Level Acupressure][F]
Releases muscle knots effectively.
——————————
He wasn’t sure why he obtained an odd skill like this one.
‘I can’t sell this kind of skill…if I was able to transfer my skill to mom and Hyuna, then it means I can transfer them to ordinary people. Should I visit a masseuse and say that I’m selling it?’

The Skill Maker – Chapter 019

Note: Double release!


<I’m the Skill Maker #1>

 

[Title: Selling Health Recovery Skill.

Content: I’m selling a skill that will increase your health recovery rate by 6.5%.

It’s a passive skill, so you’re not required to use a separate skill.

No inquiries. No negotiations.

Fast, clean transactions only.

Please send me your offer.

ps. This is not a fraud.]

He purposely didn’t include the word, scroll.

He couldn’t reveal the fact that he created the skill, so he decided to roll up a piece of paper this time too.

Without even mentioning the word scroll, most of them misunderstood it as one.

“Let’s see…….”

Comments were posted right away.

[I’ll buy it. 5000.]

“Wow, 5,000……?”

He received messages that offered a large sum…

“Stop it you damn troll. You’ve been causing an issue since your last post.”

There were also messages that said he was an imposter.

Without thinking much, he erased those messages right away.

He also blocked them.

Hyun-Soo picked a reasonable offer and replied.

Getting a lot of money was great, but.

Those that had a lot of money usually have high-ranked skills and after thinking about the previous meeting with Park Jung-Ho, he let Hyun-Soo go easily. However, he thought that it could become dangerous.

‘Kids are taught not to follow strangers, but I ended up following him because of the money.’

A training room that was taken care of by the guild.

It was a strong, secret room that prevented skills from escaping outside the room.

For a secret room, it was pretty big and the fact that it was part of a large building made it stand out.

Anyways, I could’ve been robbed at a place where there were barely any people.

He could’ve threatened me to tell regarding how I obtained the scroll.

I couldn’t ignore the fact that other awful situations could’ve taken place in there.

‘But how could you say no to ten million won? …No, that’s not right.’

It somehow worked out last time, but this time, it’s possible that he might meet some high-ranked crazy hunter and all because he went for the highest bidder.

Hyun-Soo couldn’t overlook that.

After working for a lot of different jobs, he had an idea of what he should look out for. It was his survival instinct.

“Let’s see…….”
