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?”
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?”
“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.’
