The situation was bizarre. Kim San was wondering how this opportunity landed on his lap, but he was relieved for now. The association’s president’s voice melted his worries.
Then there was only one option. Kim San came to the city to be a guide from the beginning. His father always praises his mother, so he naturally longed to become a guide. Kim San wanted to know more about his mother.
If he could be of any help to the kind Esper then better.
“I’ll do my best from now on.”
It was a bright smile, different from Gido Hae. Heo Pil-Sik, who saw Kim San making a bright pledge, failed to give words of encouragement.
Something was going wrong.
If he let him go out alone like this, the association’s president may talk nonsense again. So, Gido Hae took Kim San out of the office.
His glistening eyes felt prickly on his face.
“Oh, thank you.”
He blocked his way of escape, but Kim San thanked him for opening the door.
In the hallway outside the association’s president’s office, Gido Hae looked down at Kim San.
Just before Kim San came, Lee Jae-Chul informed him of the investigation. He still has to look into more details, but he has now figured out Kim San’s route from outside the city.
It was also confirmed and matched Kim San’s registered address.
The peculiar thing is that the death of the only family member has been reported recently.
If it was a spy sent by my father, it was one of the two. Finally, the older man became senile and sent this as a spy, or Kim San was a guide who somehow got caught by Gido Hae.
Gido Hae thought he could use this naivety a little bit more.
“I should have told you in advance. I apologize if you were surprised.”
“No, don’t worry.”
Kim San talked to Gido Hae with his eyes shining even more thanks to the topic.
“Well, I didn’t recognize you because you didn’t wear an Esper uniform.”
Esper’s clothes were usually dirty in a fight with monsters. In addition, since human technology does not secure basic defense, Esper mainly fought in uniform. It was a monster’s leather-processed object.
“It’s because I don’t like to wear it.”
Still, Kim San seems to have heard Gido Hae’s name. It was an unpleasant, irritating, but familiar look. Esper secures this society.
However, Kim San was worth using, unlike other people. Therefore, Gido Hae approached Kim San and bowed his head. He is shorter than him, so his back is bent as if a beast were attacking prey.
He bent down to the point where the tip of his nose touched Kim San’s cheek and gently swept the back of his neck with the other hand.
It was a blatant touch that most people would notice.
It was like a daily routine to take only what he needed.
“Do you have something to say?”
Kim San did not avoid Gido Hae. But it didn’t even seem like he understood what the touch meant.
The only thing that the gaze encountered was a pure face with questions. It’s as if Gido Hae just bowed his head slightly to whisper.
Looking at the eyes, Gido Hae narrowed his eyes. No matter how old he is, Kim San is already an adult, but this was a reaction that was too immune to physical contact. Therefore, Gido Hae speculated that it would be difficult to think of physical contact between the same sex as Kim San was belatedly tested for guide aptitude.
It was a nuisance. Later, he must try various things for guiding if he shows a sense of rejection from same-sex physical contact.
It was a later thing, so Gido Hae lowered his gaze.
This is confidential, but I don’t have a guide with a higher matching rate than Kim San.”
He attached his lips to Kim-san’s ear and said. He shrank his neck as if it were itchy, but he did not avoid it this time. Then, when he heard the whisper, his eyes widened.
At first, it was a top-secret, but after many guides knew, it became an open secret.
Kim San’s eyes were clear as he looked this way in surprise. To the point where even Gido Hae can no longer think of this as an insignificant act.
Kim San walks into the city alone, without knowing anything.
His fingertips were strangely twitching whenever his clear gaze was directed at me. It’s been a long time since his body was out of control. It was ridiculous that the guiding feeling he felt earlier was trying to control his body.
Gido Hae’s sensation is running wild. He was used to the feeling. Because he had been living without any guide, no matter how high the matching rate was, there was no problem with holding and shaking Kim San.
“Ah… It must have been hard.”
Kim San was simply surprised by the sudden words of Gido Hae. However, on the other hand, all of these situations were clearly understood.
Kim San also knew the name S-class Esper Gido Hae. The giant monster he hunted was often published in newspapers.
He doesn’t know exactly what kind of system the guidance is, but there must be a grade for no reason. Therefore, Kim San wondered if he, a C-class, would become a good dedicated guide for S-class Esper.
But there was a secret like this. For some reason, he has become the guide with the highest matching rate for Gido Hae. If so, he understood why the association president came forward and asked him to be a dedicated guide.
After coming to the city, Kim San was anxious because almost everything was something he didn’t know, but he felt at ease when one of his questions was resolved. In addition, the association’s president even confirmed to Kim San that he could quit at any time, so he was even less worried about this choice.
“Yes, a little.”
With Kim San’s concern, Gido Hae Hae stepped back to his original position and said bitterly. His lashes are soaked in tears as the light passes through the hallway.
The guiding consists of physical contact; if you don’t do it, Esper will live in pain and explode. These two were a common sense that Kim San knew.
Kim San was heartbroken to think such a beautiful and nice person would have suffered continuously. He was even more worried because he had heard that Esper, who had not received a guide, was suffering from a sense of soul division.
“Do you want me to guide you now?”
He hasn’t learned anything yet, but there must be a way. Kim San bravely suggested to Gido Hae.
Again this time, Gido Hae Hae, staring at Kim San with an incomprehensible gaze, raised his hand. Kim San grabbed the hand reflexively.
Gido Hae stopped when another person touched his hands. He was just trying to sweep up his hair, but Kim San grabbed it with both hands and held his hand tightly. He would have needed to learn the guiding properly, but he got energy again. It was the warmth that could piece the Esper’s guide together.
Gido Hae Hae, who felt uncomfortable with Kim San’s strangely friendly attitude, reflexively relaxed his hand and tried to escape.
Then, Kim San, who persistently clasped his hand and pulled it, smiled fearlessly and looked up at the Gido Hae.
“Oh, you can hold tight. I’m strong.”
What kind of misunderstanding did you have this time? The existence of Kim San was something Gido Hae could not understand.
He also did not point out the fact that it is dangerous to run around guiding like this. He will know it through training at the guide center anyway.
“You thought my hand would hurt, right? You’re so sweet.”
Kim-san was weird, but he would use him well. It’s only been a few hours since he met him, but why is he giving so much trust?
Of course, the guiding was addictive. Gido Hae needed a lot of guiding. He scanned Kim-san’s wrist and pulled out his hand. It was a half-reflective act.
“You must be tired today, so rest for now.”
“I’m fine……. All right. I’ll see you later.”
Leaving Kim San behind, who tired his mind, Gido Hae left the place for now.
