5. Misunderstanding (2)
The person lifted the 200kg original with one hand even though Ye-Hyeon didn’t ask for it.
However, Ye-Hyeon couldn’t thank Kwon Joo-Ho.
No matter how much he looked at the back of his head in the dim side, it’s Kwon Joo-Ho.
It’s been almost a week since the last time he saw him.
Ye-Hyeon forced out an appreciation that was stuck in his throat.
Kwon Joo-Ho looked at Ye-Hyeon with an indifferent face and just left.
‘What! I don’t know if I should call this kind or rude. I said thank, but he ignored me. How strong are you to hold that with one hand? What’s your level?’
Ye-Hyeon opened Kwon Joo-Ho’s status window with half curiosity and half jealousy.
Name: Kwon Joo-Ho
Title: Hunter Desired Student (F)
Skill: ???(?), ???(?) (Not Acquired), ???(?)
Is level 9 normal?
It’s already been a week, so it’s time for Kwon Joo-Ho to leave the training center.
Even though he would be the future number one, it was an unusual speed.
He ended up killing a pile of monster using a knife that no one can use well
Ye-Hyeon felt a sense of relative deprivation beyond being unfair.
He is complaining inside, when he felt another piercing gaze.
Ye-Hyeon is starting to get angry now.
He gritted his teeth and ignored Kwon Joo-Ho’s gaze.
‘Don’t look at me too much. Why do you keep… Huh?’
Ye-Hyeon, who was complaining with a fierce look, stopped thinking.
For some reason, he felt a strange sense of wit.
‘…Is Shin Do-Gyeom feeling like this? It’s not intentional, but considering my behavior, it seemed similar to what Kwon Joo-Ho was doing.’
Ye-Hyeon doesn’t want to know, but he just looks at Shin Do-Gyeom from afar, turns around, and gets on Shin Do-Gyeom’s nerves.
Unfortunately, Ye-Hyeon immediately understood Shin Do-Gyeom’s cold expression.
‘I was optimistic inside, but the possibility of getting close to Shin Do-Gyeom quickly converged to zero.’ he lost all of his strength in despair.
Ye-Hyeon came down from the machine with a dispirited face.
‘I don’t know. I’m taking a break today!’
After losing all motivation, Ye-Hyeon went outside trudgingly.
After returning to the accommodation, Ye-Hyeon buried himself in bed and worried all night.
For Ye-Hyeon, Shin Do-Gyeom was not just an object of longing.
Ye-Hyeon felt a strange sense of closeness even before he met Shin Do-Gyeom because they are the same age.
If Shin Do-gyeom hears it, he would snort at him.
Watching Shin Do-gyeom fight, Ye-Hyeon used to dream that he could fight like him.
Since returning, Ye-Hyeon’s top goal has naturally been to save his sister and stop the super-large gate.
However, if someone asks Ye-Hyeon about his extremely personal wish, he will answer,
“I want to be Shin Do-Gyeom’s colleague.”
It was a more desperate dream because Ye-Hyeon couldn’t achieve it.
“Negative 8 points…”
Ye-Hyeon opened the status window again.
When Ye-Hyeon first checked Shin Do-Gyeom’s intimacy, he was embarrassed, but it wasn’t a bad situation when he thought about it carefully.
It was still a figure that could be turned around.
Ye-Hyeon did not want to blow away the opportunity to build friendship with Shin Do-Gyeom in any way.
If he missed the timing while acting like this, his relationship with Shin Do-Gyeom would be completely distorted, like his relationship with Joo-Ho.
However, no matter how much he thought about it, he couldn’t figure out a way to get close.
‘How do you make friends?’
Ye-Hyeon has no one to call, like a close friend.
However, he was not a loner, and people flocked around him until he became a hunter.
Since Yoon Seung-Jae is still young, it was not that difficult because the intimacy increased even by exchanging light puns. On the other hand, Shin Do-Gyeom was so feisty that even hunters who had good social skills could not easily approach him.
For Ye-Hyeon, it would be several times easier to do business with people who don’t like him.
No matter if they swear or not, all he had to do is smile and tell a basic story.
Ye-Hyeon, who was following the endless thoughts, checked the status window.
If it’s early in the morning when the sun hadn’t risen yet.
“If you don’t know how to do anything, you have to dig in until you can.”
Ye-Hyeon immediately jumped out of his seat when he remembered Shin Do-Gyeom.
Ye-Hyeon encountered Shin Do-Gyeom several times a day over the past week, but he never met him in the morning.
If so, there was a high possibility that Shin Do-Gyeom would spend time at the archery field every morning.
Nothing could be solved by being stuck in a room alone and worrying.
Whether it was porridge or rice, he was going to bump into him for now.
In order to get rid of the stigma of being a stalker, he needs to arrive first before Shin Do-Gyeom.
He will go to the first archery field today and then the second archery field tomorrow. Would Shin Do-Gyeom move training ground like Yoon Seung-jae?’
Ye-Hyeon did his hair more carefully than usual.
The archery field was scattered in the middle of the mountain range surrounding the north of the training center.
Ye-Hyeon climbed the mountain and arrived at the first archery field. It was 5 in the morning.
Ye-Hyeon was stuck in the archery field until lunch and waited for Shin Do-Gyeom to appear.
Shin Do-Gyeom did not appear in the first and second archery field.
Ironically, when Ye-Hyeon didn’t intend to meet Shin Do-Gyeom, he kept meeting him unnecessarily. When Ye-Hyeon waited at the archery range, Shin Do-Gyeom couldn’t be seen even during the day as if he was hiding.
On the third day of searching for Shin Do-Gyeom, Ye-Hyeon headed to the 3rd archery field.
“I hope to see you today. I was tired from waking up early in the morning.”
Ye-Hyeon yawned and looked around the 3rd archery field, as with other archery ranges, he could only hear the sound of bugs.
The archery fields were all located outside the training center and there were no people, so it was quieter.
Even considering that it was early, it was unusual that there was no one in the training center facility except Ye-Hyeon.
Archery boomed for a while in the early days of Hunter, but now the heat was gone.
Since few people wanted to learn, even the dedicated hunter was away and only the call bell was left alone.
Archery had no particular advantage compared to magic or swordsmanship.
The technology was not spectacular, but it was not exceptionally strong either.
On the other hand, only the shortcomings such as the need for time to aim or the lack of combat durability because arrows are consumables were emphasized.
Although long-distance dealers were generally weak in one-on-one battles with monsters, there was a strong perception that archers were particularly disadvantageous.
It was only natural that the archer was neglected because of the criticism that it was all about providing support from afar
It was Shin Do-Gyeom who thoroughly broke the prejudice that archery is full of shortcomings.
He have heard an article that the number of people learning archery has significantly increased since Shin Do-Gyeom emerged as a rookie.
Ye-Hyeon picked up the bow from the stand.
Unlike the inside of the archery field, which had minimal management, the bow condition was not bad.
Ye-Hyeon stood in front of a large target and slowly pulled the bow.
Although his arms were shaking, his form was quite plausible.
Ye-Hyeon was also one of the countless people who learned bows by watching Shin Do-Gyeom.
In fact, when Ye-Hyeon was in the training center, he learned bows longer than swords.
His muscles were stimulated, perhaps because it was the first time he held a bow after regression.
Ye-Hyeon held his breath and carefully laid out the demonstration.
*Swoosh, thud, thud*
The arrow that flew in the air fell on the ground behind it, not on the target.
Ye-Hyeon smiled as if he knew it and turned his stiff shoulders.
“As expected, it’s not right.”
Ye-Hyeon tried it several times in a row, but the fifth arrow barely hit the target edge.
Even when practicing hard, it was rare not to hit more than half.
It was just a lack of talent.
It’s been a while since Ye-Hyeon held a bow, so it’s pretty fun for him.
It reminds Ye-Hyeon of the good old days, and he shook off his arm with all ten arrows.
It was a situation where he had to pick up the arrow.
After carefully putting down the bow, Ye-Hyeon fiddled with a tight protest with a lingering look and turned to the target.
‘Attack Target 3: Shin Do-Gyeom’s affection increased by 1 point.
Ye-Hyeon almost screamed at the message window that suddenly popped up with
‘Wow, that’s a surprise’.
