Upon hearing the order, Lee Jae-Chul barely endured swallowing the words, “Why? Because the Gido Hae in front of him was creepy and weird.
When he approached the young man’s cell phone, Lee Jae-Chul moved urgently. He felt sorry for the young man but didn’t mean to stop Gido Hae. He moved to remove evidence or witnesses as much as possible.
Other Espers officials in the lobby escaped from the building, adept at Lee Jae-Chul’s leadership. It is a very heartless city-like act in which he doesn’t bother caring about the young man who will face Gido Hae’s wrath.
Everyone interpreted the scene of Gido Hae dragging the young man to one side as an intention to take him a place and harm him. Even Lee Jae-Chul thought so too.
However, when he returned after letting all the people out, there was a strange scene. The young man was fine, and Gido Hae kindly gave out some directions. Seeing that he was smiling, as usual, he must have been in a bad mood, but his behavior was kind.
He wanted to ask if he had finally gone mad, but he valued his life and didn’t want to risk it.
Then he noticed the surviving cute-looking young man going to the fifth floor.
It was a place where a new guide visited for registration.
Lee Jae-Chul, quick-witted, quickly noticed that the young man was a guide. He didn’t know why Gido Hae was more crazy than usual, but there is also speculation that it may have something to do with the young man’s guiding ability.
However, even after seeing the guide of Gido Hae finally appear, Lee Jae-Chul was not just happy. An irreplaceable guide can sometimes cause disasters.
Lee Jae-Chul already had a headache thinking about the disturbance it would cause in the future.
When Kim San arrived on the fifth floor, he looked at the department name written there in despair. There were only two simple ‘new’ letters stamped on the wall.
Therefore, Kim San quickly expected he would have been lost if he hadn’t met the kind person. Even if the cell phone worked well, he couldn’t find the word guide center.
The employee at the new desk said they had never seen such an old notice before. At that time, the guide center was small, so the department was not subdivided like this.
It felt like he was in a hospital to get a guide aptitude test. Kim San is in good health, so he has been to the hospital, though he has only been to a big hospital once when he followed his grandfather.
He was depressed when he heard of his grandfather’s illness at the hospital.
Kim San quickly settled down, thinking it might be because his body was tired. This also came as a new experience when he decided to think positively. The interior of the latest building, which is hard to see in the village, was a series of wonders. Before monsters appeared, he honestly couldn’t believe everyone lived in these buildings.
Could his mother guide espers while living like this?
The appearance of a mother he had never seen before leaving without a trace. Kim San only knew her by his father’s description. His father, who said she was more confident and bright than anyone else, always showed a dreamy look. The young Kim-san always thinks of his mother as a beautiful woman.
After conducting various tests, the last place he arrived was a guide test center. He heard that it is mainly a place to check the suitability rate with Esper. He stood blankly with strange patches on his head and chest, but the machine next to him kept spitting out some paper.
“What’s this paper?”
“I’ll explain everything to you later. Don’t talk.”
It was the first time he opened his mouth, but the prosecutor reprimanded Kim San bluntly. He knew it was wrong to talk to him, but it was an aggressive reaction than expected. It was a very different reaction from the desk employee who was being friendly, and he felt strange for no reason.
There were so many other questions, but Kim San acted positively for now. He felt more exhausted when asked to raise both arms to the sides, which the prosecutor demanded.
“Next, we will do a rough match rate test with each Esper.”
When will it be over? Can he ask that? How long does he have to do this posture?….
He thought he saw the letter C earlier, but the inspector has become noticeably more unfriendly since then. Is it a bad result?
The annoying-looking inspector entered something into the computer next to Kim San again. Then he saw some data being displayed on the screen. At first glance, it seemed to be the name of many people.
At the top of them, he could see a name that started with “Gi” passing by.
“Now, now, wait a minute.”
And at that moment, the inspector’s expression, which had been brusque the whole time, turned pale. He seemed very surprised, to be exact.
Then he ran out of the examination room. Kim San, still standing in a position with his arms raised vaguely, is left behind.
The listener had already left, but Kim San answered steadily. He wanted to sit down, but he hesitated because names were passing by on the computer. The test seemed to be still underway.
A very tiring day must still take longer to end.
“·…43%? Are you sure?”
Heo Pil-Sik, president of the Guide Association, doubted his ears. The test results of one of the researchers who just ran in were unexpected.
Unlike his authority, the president’s office was decorated with a warm atmosphere. Gido Hae, among the cute props and vases, opened its mouth.
“I told you. Why won’t you believe me as the president of the association.”
Gido Hae opened his mouth with a bright smile in the gentle atmosphere. Heo Pil-Sik usually frowns when he enters the president’s office, which his pair guide have painstakingly decorated. It was because the more he smiled, the more awkward and irritated he became.
That bloody bright smile was like a poisonous weed that lured and killed people.
Heo Pil-Sik’s anger rose further when he asked while tilting his upper body as if he was worried. He knew for the first time after meeting Gido Hae that his polite attitude could make people angry.
He has a talent for pissing people off.
“Do I have to tell you a few more times to understand? Are your ears clogged? Do you want me to pierce it?”
As if he would do it himself if he wanted to, Gido Hae asked, spinning the cutter on the desk with telekinesis. Occasionally, Heo Pil-Sik’s eyes frowned automatically whenever the pointed part turned dangerously toward him.
Of course, as if he was maintaining his face as the association’s president, Heo Pil-Sik ignored Gido Hae and strictly ordered the researcher.
He turned a blind eye to the fact that the researcher wanted to leave.
“First of all, keep quiet. Get the detailed data.”
About an hour ago, Gido Hae suddenly rushed into the president’s office of the association and said that his guide would appear. The president then thought that this guy had finally gone mad.
Gido Hae chose his precious association’s chief office as a place to run wild. The evidence-filled sentiment occupied Heo Pil-Sik’s head that he might have devised a plan to screw him until the end.
He sat on the sofa for a long time. Gido Hae was waiting patiently.
Heo Pil-Sik’s heart sank this time because it was quite different from Esper’s runaway, which he knew well. He was wondering what he was up to. When asked about the whole story urgently, he smiled again and said nothing but added that he would know soon.
However, he was surprised when the researcher rushed in and said that a guide with a high matching rate with Gido Hae appeared.
He wondered if Gido Hae hadn’t received properly guiding and just threatened the researcher. He had a creepy assumption that he might have awakened his precognition ability. If Lee Jae-Chul, who came after him, had not explained the whole story, he would have been more anxious.
Thinking about it, Heo Pil-Sik was excited. This time, the researcher, who had been running tests, presented the test paper and quickly focused on the documents.
“Am I right?”
Gido Hae was right. The suitability rate of the new guide reached 43% from the prayer year.
“Hmm. He is a C-class”
Gido Hae approached the desk and took the document from Heo Pil-Sik’s hand. The document’s contents were lengthy, but there was some clear information.
Kim San, 20 years old. The matching rate with him is 43%, and the average matching rate for Esper is 50%. Final Judgment Class C Guide.
It was the most numerous and average C-class guide. Usually, C-class guides are paired with multiple low-ranking espers.
However, it was common for Espers above B to have a slightly lower matching rate.
Therefore, if the matching rate of 43% had come to other Esper, it would have just passed like that. However, it was a miracle for Gido Hae, who had only a 5% matching rate with the A-class guide.
Is this a sign of KS being a dedicated guide?
