<It’s Delicious and Good for the Body #2>
“Anyways, you guys are the only clan that managed to clear the colorful portal.”
Kim Yoo-Na looked over at Hyun-Soo.
Hyun-Soo also looked at Kim Yoo-Na when he felt her looking at him.
An odd feeling that he couldn’t quite describe enveloped him.
“More people will try to work with you guys and I’ll get even busier…hm…and now we’re back to where we started.”
“Stop complaining, Mr. Herhim. I have a hard time believing that you get tired.”
Was that a good thing?
When Herhim intercepted, the odd feeling that he felt between him and Kim Yoo-Na completely disappeared.
After that, they made small talk.
Kim Yoo-Na made a “That’s understandable” face and listened to Herhim.
And then, Herhim focused all of his attention on Riri.
‘I’m sure he told me to come because he wanted to see Riri.’
Herhim stated a different reason, but Hyun-Soo was sure that Riri was the reason.
After they finished talking, Herhim approached Hyun-Soo while him and Kim Yoo-Na were getting up.
He looked inside Hyun-Soo’s hood with a disappointed look and then spoke to him.
“Jeez, these rumors. It looks like you did that on purpose, so would it be okay if I help you out?”
“That’ll be great.”
If Herhim gets involved, things will work faster. A more detailed rumor will spread.
This was exactly what Hyun-Soo wanted.
A large treasure will definitely attract moths.
But it was hard to tell whether they were an ally or a foe.
One thing he was sure of was that those moths couldn’t become allies.
He would gladly welcome them with open arms if he could filter out the foes.
On top of that, he’ll be able to see who’s side they were on.
“Then, leave it to me. I won’t let you down.”
Herhim extended his hand out.
Hyun-Soo smiled while shaking his hand.
He smiled brightly.
Being the only clan to clear the colorful portal was an amazing thing.
In many ways, things have become chaotic inside and outside of the clan.
“Ack, there’s too many. I really don’t like this.”
The members complained while imagining a quiet life.
Another member complained while the cafeteria was being invaded.
“I feel like a caged animal at a zoo.”
Just from her looks, Katrina looked younger than 20-years-old, but she put her head down and released a sigh.
“There’s nothing we can do. This is the price that we have to pay for becoming famous, so just endure a bit longer.”
Eugene comforted the members that escaped to the Center Room to get away from the guests.
They had no choice but to reveal a section of the base.
It seemed like the members didn’t even like that because they didn’t look that happy.
Katrina stood up as if she was asking how she was supposed to endure it.
“What are you going to do if you don’t?”
“We need to build a different space for them! Our base is precious! We have to protect it!”
Katrina blurted it out out of anger, but someone else agreed.
“Oh, that’s a good idea. We have some land left anyways.”
“Right. We have the land we took from that old man.”
They had a really big land.
They were using part of the land as an airstrip, but it was pretty far from the base.
Everyone’s eyes widened when they recalled the empty land between the airstrip and the base.
“Do you think Yoo-Na will agree?”
“I don’t know. Let’s just try it.”
“Yeah, our mental health is important! Maintaining a good condition is the most important and we can’t do that with all these people.”
And moments later, the discussion to build a new building was over.
Hyun-Soo slightly lost his sense of reality while watching them.
‘They’re just showing off their money…….’
That’s what it sounded like from his point of view.
Honestly, there were a lot of people.
There were people trying to make a good impression and guilds that came to propose an alliance.
It did feel like the number of visitors increased.
But if that was the level of their strength, then it wasn’t all that bad.
‘Yeah, this is a pretty bourgeois clan.’
A ranked hunters were equivalent to a one-man company.
The amount they spent was well over the amount that Hyun-Soo assumed.
Hyun-Soo was almost the same level as them, but it was still difficult for him to take it in.
Hyun-Soo has been saving up by selling potions and from the reward money the clan received through the hunts, but he still had a long way to go.
“If we start now, when will it finish?”
“I don’t know. The more money we spend, the faster it’ll finish.”
“Then we won’t have to endure this situation for much longer.”
It was obvious that they were going to spend money without any hesitation. The rich were on a different level.
“I hope they finish the airstrip soon. No matter how much money we spend, there are limitations with that one, so…”
Hyun-Soo didn’t know that they’ve been wanting this for a long time.
The airstrip was still under construction.
He’s seen them display a satisfied smile whenever they heard that the airstrip was coming along fine.
“I’m sure thing swill become comfortable once it’s finished.”
“Of course. Once we have an alliance, they’ll be visiting often and it’s a hassle for them to constantly be at the airport. It’ll be better if they just fly out from here.”
The members looked proud.
They were now looking at Hyun-Soo.
They were able to obtain the land for the airstrip because of Hyun-Soo.
If Hyun-Soo didn’t guide them through the seven doors, they probably would’ve still been stuck in that maze.
“Hyon-Ssoo, hide well, okay?”
“We can’t let someone steal the clan’s lucky charm, so hide well.”
Katrina patted his shoulder as if she was comforting a child.
Hyun-Soo thought she was being ridiculous, but just let it go.
She probably just as annoyed as the others about the guests.
‘I think Mr. Herhim involvement worked out really well.’
He didn’t know why, but there were people that asked for Hyun-Soo.
Hyun-Soo was curious, but before he could find out, the members kidnapped him and dragged him to the Center Room.
‘Maybe the information was leaked elsewhere…’
If it wasn’t the black market, then there was only one other place.
Hyun-Soo thought for a moment.
He predicted on how things were going to turn out.
After making a few predictions, Hyun-Soo carefully reviewed those predictions.
Having leaked information was a part of his plan.
In the end, this was proof that things were working out like he had planned.
“It would be nice if the building was finished on the same day the guests arrives.”
“I think that’ll be hard, but…let’s use more money.”
“Yeah, let’s do that.”
The quiet base was now filled with people and the members were annoyed by that.
But in a few days, people that received official invitations were going to visit the base.
It was like a press conference to reveal the information, but it was technically an invitation.
There was a good chance that everyone was coming for different reasons, so they’ll probably stay for more than two days.
There was a reason the members were reacting this way.
The base was big and grandeur and the space inside was spacious as well.
There was plenty of room for the guests.
But they didn’t like the fact that outsiders were invading their comfort zone.
‘Well…it’s not that I can’t understand them. They’re not just ordinary guests. They’re like hyenas that’s trying to gain something from the visit.’
There probably weren’t going to be a lot of guests that visits just for information.
The clan used to be a small group and was hidden from the others.
There were several people that wanted the clan’s power.
Hyun-Soo was already excited.
Riri flew up. She must’ve been having fun because she sounded happy.
The reason was simple.
“Oh my. It was true.”
“I heard about it, but didn’t think it was true…….”
It’s because most of the people were looking at Riri.
‘I think she actually enjoys the attention.’
Is it because she’s still young?
She was like a child that wanted attention and compliments.
It’s only been a few months since she hatched out of the egg.
‘But do monsters have the same growth rate as humans?’
It didn’t seem that way, but since he didn’t know anything, he couldn’t say anything.
That’s probably why Riri was being treated with importance.
Because they’ll be able to research the monsters more deeply.
But to Hyun-Soo, Riri was an annoying being that never left his side.
Riri caught the attention of the guests as she flew around the base.
At first, she refused to leave Hyun-Soo’s side, but now, she was really enjoying it.
“I want to raise one too.”
A small smile appeared on Hyun-Soo face when he saw their reaction.
It was what he wanted.
Riri was a one of a kind in the entire world. Of course there were going to be a lot of people that wanted her.
Hiding a rare treasure wasn’t a bad idea, but revealing it to everyone was a good method too.
A lot of people will look and because of that, they won’t be able to act carelessly.
‘I can filter out the enemies.’
Riri was the only monster in the world that has been trained.
Everyone would be envious.
But that didn’t mean that they were going to act fairly to get her.
‘I’ll know if I keep an eye out.’
Hunters from all over the world gathered to get information.
There were a lot of people that Hyun-Soo was concerned about.
There were high-ranked hunters that were invited based on their personal success, but most of them were from guilds or groups.
Hyun-Soo watched them closely.
Riri flew as if she was going to approach the hunters, but just flew past them.
Of course everyone was going to look at Riri.
Hyun-Soo just stood still and watched them.
“I don’t like that there’s too many people…”
“Ugh, I think I’m going to vomit.”
The same conversation from a few days ago came up again.
The construction that they poured their money into had its limitations, so it hasn’t been finished.
However, the construction was almost done. It was a culture shock to Hyun-Soo.
But the members next to him were actually complaining about it.
“Why is it taking 12 days to finish it?”
Katrina mumbled while making a crying face.
Out of all the members that put their money into this construction, Katrina paid the most.
Since the FE Clan was a small, hidden clan, not many people knew about the members, so the hunters assumed that Katrina was a local.
They must’ve thought she was cute because she was standing between guys with large frames.
But Katrina was busy complaining and running away from the guests.
“Oh, Hyon-Ssoo, have you heard?”
