He targeted its weakness.

And he used a skill that maximized his attack.

So he did think that it was definitely possible, but.

‘I didn’t think it would actually happen. I killed a blue portal monster all on my own…?’

Hyun-Soo was at a loss for words.

But he came back to his senses and looked over at Kim Yoo-Na and Katrina.

“Ha!”

Slurp!

“Grrrrrrr!”

Boom!

When he turned his attention towards them, that’s when he realized the noise was coming from their side.

‘I must’ve been really concentrating. Is that why everything moved so slowly?’

Brad and Eugene and also Kim Yoo-Na’s side were finishing up.

“Whew…….”

After the monsters released a bizarre scream, the room was filled with the sound of the members catching their breaths.

The stomach of the Gruppa that Kim Yoo-Na killed had blown up as well.

Because of that, green fluids were all over her face and hair.

That’s when Kim Yoo-Na and Hyun-Soo’s eyes met.

‘Huh?’

Kim Yoo-Na had a small smile on her face.

However, that smile disappeared seconds later.

“Wow, Yoo-Na, you really killed that Gruppa. Huh? That Gruppa looks even worse.”

The legs of the Gruppa that Eugene mentioned were twisted in odd directions and its neck was twisted as well.

Since its stomach was cut open, the cause of death was obvious.

Kim Yoo-Na’s Gruppa was killed in a more neat and efficient manner than Hyun-Soo’s. Hyun-Soo’s Gruppa was ripped to shreds, which made it difficult to identify the body.

“***** D ***? *** A? **** lie ****!”

Katrina suddenly started yelling.

Her finger was pointing at Hyun-Soo.

‘What is she saying?’

“A trap?”

“It’s connected to the wall and to the floor.”

Since he was following along, keeping quiet was the wisest thing to do.

It was best not to cause any issues.

‘But, this is different since there’s a trap.’

The other members might be able to take care of themselves since they were A rank hunters, but Hyun-Soo was a D rank hunter that was close to being a C rank.

He was the weakest member.

‘Other people might think the blue portal is easy, but not for me.’

Because of that, Hyun-Soo was nervous when he mentioned that there was a trap.

This was a different situation, but remembered the time when he caused an issue because he interfered.

Eugene observed the spot that Hyun-Soo mentioned and nodded his head.

“He’s right. I guess I wasn’t really paying attention. Sorry. And thank you for letting me know. My reputation could have been ruined because of it.”

Eugene avoided the section that Hyun-Soo told him and told the others to be careful.

“……?”

Hyun-Soo felt someone looking at him and when he looked to the side, his eyes met with Katrina’s.

Her face was scrunched up due to the smell, but her eyes were filled with curiosity.

“We’re here.”

Eugene seemed to have increased his concentration after, because he didn’t miss a single trap.

After following the path, they arrived at a large, open area..

There must’ve been a hole in the ceiling because a faint light lit up the area.

“Be careful. We don’t know when it’ll attack.”

Spiderwebs were all over the place.

White, sticky threads were everywhere.

And below the white threads, there were several bones rolling around.

“What do you mean why? One of the reasons why you didn’t return was because of that guy, wasn’t it? Hye-Na can get treated at our base too. As a crew, it’s only natural that we get worried.”

“Hyun-Soo has nothing to do with this. I told you, Hye-Na was missing Korea, so we came back.”

“What?”

The other two were feeling frustrated because Kim Yoo-Na and Eugene were talking in Korean.

‘Her situation sounds more complicated than I thought…’

Something did happen between them.

Hyun-Soo was in a difficult situation.

It was awkward for him to ask Kim Yoo-Na personal questions since they were only acquaintances.

They had already forgotten about Hyun-Soo.

‘If they were in the same team as her, I’m sure their skills are amazing.’

Hyun-Soo used Interface out of curiosity.

‘Interface!’

<New Face #3>

Hyun-Soo turned his attention to the ostrich’s corpse.

A D rank hunter killed a monster from a green portal?

That wasn’t possible.

“Ha ha…… Ha! I did it.”

However, the corpse of a monster with its head cut off was lying in front of Hyun-Soo.

Hyun-Soo killed it all by himself.

After checking it twice, he started laughing.

‘I thought it would be possible, but I didn’t think I could actually do it.’

That meant that his developed skill was beyond powerful.

He was able to do it thanks to Interface showing him the monster’s weakness.

If he didn’t know its weakness, it would’ve taken him a long time to decrease the Energy Field.

‘Since I only need to attack its weak point, I won’t be wasting time or energy.’

Thanks to that, he was able to kill it within a short amount of time.

“Good job. You managed to kill it without my help.”

Kim Yoo-Na approached him and extended her hand out to Hyun-Soo.

Hyun-Soo looked at her hand momentarily and grabbed it.

Kim Yoo-Na easily pulled him up.

“It seems like the slight change in the skill was effective. You cleared it faster than I thought.”

“I think it’s still beyond my power.”

If the ostrich wasn’t a bird brain, then it wouldn’t have fallen for Hyun-Soo trap and the battle might’ve lasted for a long time.

The ostrich’s characteristics help him.

“I was lucky.”

“Luck is a skill too. I honestly wasn’t expecting you to develop your skills.”

“…….”

This woman. Even though she knew he wouldn’t be able to do it, she just threw him in.

Hyun-Soo was on the verge of thinking that this was ridiculous, but remembered her teaching.

‘Even though she only talked about the theory, it became a huge help…’

“The skills that the hunters use have already been engraved to their bodies, so even slightly changing it is a difficult task. It’s safe to say that it’s impossible.”

“And you asked me to do that?”

“You succeeded, didn’t you?”

Kim Yoo-Na looked at him as if she was saying that success was the only thing that mattered.

As long as the result is good, everything else is good.

Hyun-Soo thought it was absurd, but decided not to drag it any further.

“Wait. Let me measure you first.”

Beep, beep! Beep, beep, beep!

‘Why are we hiking all of a sudden?’

Since the portal was located within the mountain, Hyun-Soo had no choice but to climb the mountain.

Before, he probably would’ve ran out of breath, but thanks to the training, this was easy.

“Let’s go in.”

“Okay.”

The two walked through the green portal.

 

**

 

A large nest was sitting on the top of the large field.

The nest was way taller than Hyun-Soo’s height.

‘I know ostriches look like that, but this one looks violent.’

A mysterious bird that was sitting inside the nest noticed that intruders were on their land, so they were staring at them.

Steel-clawed Ostrich.

He noticed it right after after seeing the geographical features and the large nest.

Kim Yoo-Na didn’t have to tell him for him to know.

He felt proud for studying.

“The Energy Field is higher than the monsters that we’ve taken down so far.”

Kim Yoo-Na calculated the monster’s Energy Field first.

“It might take that much longer.”

“If we move according to my plan, it won’t take that long. But, only if you dodge their attacks.”

Kim Yoo-Na seemed to have said it after remembering how Hyun-Soo used the skill at the training center yesterday.

‘It sounds like she trusts me, but am I supposed to thank her or not? She’ll probably throw me into it as usual.’

She never explained how it should be done.

“Huh? The store?”

“Yeah, the landlord suddenly increased the rent. It seemed like he wanted to bring in a franchise…the landlord said they weren’t making a lot of money, so they were contemplating whether to close it or not.”

“Why a franchise all of a sudden?”

“They wanted to give their son the store since he graduated school, but since there’s a lot of customers at the store, they’re getting greedy.”

Hyun-Soo had an idea after hearing his mother’s explanation.

Like his mother mentioned, the location of the store was a good location.

So that’s probably why they wanted it for themselves.

‘This happens to a lot of people. But, it is pretty unfair.’

Situations where the landlord kicks out the owner of the store so that they can run the store themselves isn’t rare.

Since the landlord increases the rent to the point where the store owner can’t pay, the owner has no choice but to close it.

‘There are landlords that kick out the owner and run the same type of business.’

It also meant that the previous store owner would be losing their customers as well.

Despite the fact that landlords have a lot of money, they desire more.

And it seemed like the store that his mother was working at was in the same situation.

‘She would always come home after closing hours, so there must be a lot of customers.’

‘I can attack several of them at once!’

Instead of it flying sporadically, the distance between them widened a bit, but it was still something.

“Invisible Attack! Invisible Attack!”

The training room was filled with Hyun-Soo’s voice.

He was by himself anyways..

An attack that required covertness..

But right now, he was practicing a skill that just developed.

He needed a shout of concentration until he becomes more used to the skill.

Swooosh!

Craaaack!

The sound of the log splitting apart was loud every time.

As the sawdust flew, it dispersed like a fog.

Hyun-Soo moved a bit further away and tested his new skill.

Ziiiiip!

Clack!

The last log split in half.

His energy level was really low.

‘I should stop now.’.

He was sweating a lot from using his power.

After wiping his forehead, he looked around the messy room.

‘It’s like a new way to chop wood. I could do this as a side job.’

Before, Hyun-Soo had many side jobs.

Because he was used to having so many side jobs, he thought of an idea for a side job after looking at the logs that were on the floor.

“How’s it going?”

He turned around and saw that Kim Yoo-Na was in the room.

As she walked into the room, her eyes widened as she observed the situation.

“You’ve succeeded.”

“Yes. It’s all thanks to you.”

He experienced a skill development for the first time and his stats increased as well.

Everything was working out really well.

‘……?’

Kim Yoo-Na pointed somewhere.

There were logs lined up where she pointed and it didn’t match well with the high-tech, modern room.’

“It looks like there’s more than 30 of them.”

“That’s right. I explained it to you, right? Use the same method. Whether it’ll work or not depends on your efforts. Good luck.”

With that, Kim Yoo-Na left the floor.

‘Wow…….’

He heard her explanation.

He only watched her demonstrate.

But, it was totally different from actually doing it. And there was no way Kim Yoo-Na didn’t know that.

She threw him into training this time too.

Since she did teach him, she wasn’t wrong when she said she would teach him.

The issue was that she wasn’t friendly about it.

“I did cut down one, so now I have five more to go.”

At first, he had a really hard time.

He couldn’t really concentrate and she told him to gather the energy within him and materialize it.

‘What the hell is she talking about?’

Then, Kim Yoo-Na brought in a candle and lit it.

She then told him to blow it out.

She told him that he needed to have the willpower to blow it out since it didn’t go out when he blew it or touched it.

When Hyun-Soo was having hard time…

“You’re lacking the willpower to blow it out!”

Was what she yelled at him. Read More

“If it’s possible, it would be great.”

If it was possible.

He had an idea of what Kim Yoo-Na was talking about.

But, he had no idea as to what he had to do.

“Don’t worry. The issue of whether it’s possible or not is up to you, but I’ll take responsibility and train you so that it’ll increase the chance of it being possible.”

“……Excuse me?”

“Why are you surprised? You just saw the effects of my training. Those two scums looked like they were only D ranks, but despite being the same rank, you really beat those guys.”

It was true.

All of his punches and the way his legs moved looked like a slow-motion video.

He wondered why that happened…….

‘It’s the effects of the training……?’

Up till now, he’s been fighting against just monsters.

Of course he didn’t know what to expect during a one-one-one battle.

He was still having a hard time keeping up when fighting against a monster.

So he didn’t assume that his skills had improved this much.

He was really happy about the fact that he got stronger, but there was something off that stopped himself from celebrating.

‘But it was realistically too slow for it to be the effects of the training.’

It was still good though.

It ended pretty well.

He obtained a skill that others wouldn’t be able to look down upon.

‘Even if I did train, is it possible for it to have that much of an effect?’

Hyun-Soo understood Kim Yoo-Na’s explanation, but at the same time, questioned it.

It was an interesting feeling where time slowed around him.

He could clearly see where his opponent was going to attack.

If it was really because of the training, then it was a growth that should be watched closely.

<You’ll Meet Your Enemy at a Weaponry Store #3>

 

He wondered whether they had planned to make fun of him since Kim Yoo-Han and his party were pretty crazy.

‘I can tell from their faces.’

However, Hyun-Soo knew that wasn’t the case when he saw how red his opponent’s face turned.

He was getting angry at how Hyun-Soo kept on dodging his attacks.

“Then try dodging this!”

The opponent’s hands hit Hyun-Soo’s upper body hard.

To be exact, he tried to hit him hard.

His hands were all over the place.

It was as if he was trying to block Hyun-Soo from dodging his attacks because he kept on punching at a fast rate.

All of his energy was focused on his fists.

Fwoosh! Swoosh! Fwoosh!

Every time he punched with his fist, his clothes started fluttering and the sound of his fist cutting through the air could be heard.

But…….

‘Oh, this one is slow too.’

His punches were so predictable that he thought maybe he was doing that on purpose.

It was difficult for him to take a hit on purpose.

He was able to dodge their punches without any difficulties.

His opponent kept on approaching him and striking with his fist, but none of them landed on Hyun-Soo.

Hyun-Soo slightly glanced to the side.

Kim Yoo-Han was looking his way with a shocked look.

It was as if he couldn’t believe what he was seeing.

After seeing his expression, a smirk appeared on Hyun-Soo’s face.

He ridiculed him.

It was a mistake for him to think that Hyun-Soo was just another ordinary carrier.

“He, he, hey! What are you doing?! Stop messing around and get him!”

“Da-damn it!”

His opponent felt rushed because of Kim Yoo-Han’s comment.

Swoosh!
