19. Hunter Market (2)
“The Healer’s armor are on the third floor. Let’s go together. Didn’t you not have a healer’s uniform at the accommodation?”
“No, I didn’t.”
There was a defense equipment store up to the fourth floor, but the higher it went up, the more high-end equipment there was. Naturally, the amount needed has also increased exponentially.
Before returning, Ye-Hyeon only went to the second floor at most, so it was the first time on the third floor.
The interior was different for each floor, but the first floor was brown, the second floor was green, and the third floor was navy.
For some reason, the air felt different.
Ye-Hyeon carefully stepped on the third floor and looked around.
“It’s hanging over there.”
Ye-Hyeon, who turned his head in the direction Baek Hae-won pointed, shed a gloom.
The clothes on the mannequin were dazzlingly new.
A high hat with a sharp angle and a cape that wrapped around the shoulders.
Even from 100 meters away, it was too flashy for a healer.
“This is a little…”
Ye-Hyeon blurted out the end of his words looking at the gold thread embroidered loudly on the sleeves and chest.
He couldn’t even dare to look at the mirror.
It was so white that I thought it would get dirty easily.
“You don’t like it?”
“It’s too much trouble. Isn’t Hunter Baek Hae-Won uncomfortable?”
Ye-Hyeon secretly looked at the magic robe across the street and asked.
It wasn’t as extravagant as the healer’s clothes, but the same was true of what the wizards wore.
Isn’t it better to be simple and active?
He couldn’t understand making it an uncomfortable design.
It seemed to be more expensive because there were a lot of useless decorations on it.
“When I work, I need to dress up according to the time and place. It’s also called a concept, right?”
Baek Hae-Won shrugged his shoulders slyly.
Ye-Hyeon looked at Baek Hae-Won anew.
Perhaps Baek Hae-Won enjoys the sound of “an idol in the Hunter world.”
‘I don’t think so…”
“There will be a time when you need this kind of outfit later, too.”
“Me? Ugh. I don’t know…”
Baek Hae-Won bent down and laughed at Ye-Hyeon, who was reluctant enough to narrow his eyes.
Ye-Hyeon left the healer suit he never wanted to wear and went back to the first floor.
Yoon Seung-Jae and Kwon Joo-Ho were near the counter.
Seeing him smiling, Yoon Seung-Jae seemed to have bought armor, and Kwon Joo-Ho seemed to have purchased small equipment such as wrist guards and belts.
“You’re really not going to buy anything?”
“I didn’t like anything, so I’m just going to use what I got. It was strong and nice.”
There was no extra money because it was used to pay off debts by robbing all of the awakening subsidies.
“Do you want me to buy it for you?”
Yoon Seung-Jae looked around with an unhappy expression and asked quietly in Ye-Hyeon’s ear.
Ye-Hyeon smiled and pushed Yoon Seung-Jae’s forehead away.
It could have made him feel bad, but it sounded cute because he knew how much Yoon Seung-Jae worried about him.
“I’ll just accept your heart.”
He didn’t want to bother him.
That’s even more for a younger brother who’s 8 years younger.
The remaining monster sweep was so well paid that it was jokingly called the minimum wage.
Among them, sweeping the C-class gate was for a low-level hunter who lacked combat power unless he was a new hunter trying to gain experience.
The participation fee itself was high because there was no healer.
Soon, he will be able to buy the equipment you want without much trouble.
‘When will I be able to pay back all my debts…’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
When Ye-Hyeon refused, Yoon Seung-Jae pouted his lower lip with a dissatisfied look.
“Didn’t you hear that? They say armor is more important. What if you faint in the dungeon again?”
“Wait, Yoon Seung-Jae.”
Ye-Hyeon hurriedly cut off Yoon Seung-Jae’s words, but Baek Hae-Won showed interest in it as if it was late.
Baek Hae-Won couldn’t have not known the news because there was also a fuss on the Hunter Community Free Bulletin.
Nevertheless, Baek Hae-Won tilted his head with an unexpected look.
“Well, somehow…It was because he was surprised by Lizadri.”
Ye-Hyeon hit Yoon Seung-Jae’s forearm with his fist.
However, Yoon Seung-Jae snorted rather than shrinking.
“We’re all party members now, so everyone should know. How weak you are.”
Ye-Hyeon stopped because he was out of energy.
“It was because it was my first dungeon at that time. After that, it was okay.”
Ye-Hyeon rubbed his hot cheeks with the back of his hand.
Shameful memories that he wanted to forget resurfaced.
The Hunter world was a place where rumors spread quickly, so everyone would know one day, but it was also embarrassing.
Kwon Joo-Ho is listening, too.
What kind of shame is this? Baek Hae-Won, which may be the third target, but he didn’t want to be caught by Kwon Joo-ho.
Kwon Joo-ho was still looking at Ye-Hyeon without an expression that could not be read.
“Hmm,” Baek Hae-won was interested.
“I need to go to the bathroom.”
Ye-Hyeon decided to run away from the unwelcome topic.
Baek Hae-won called Ye-Hyeon lightly as he quickly headed to the entrance of the store.
“Do you know where it is? There’s a separate place outside.”
Was he too natural for when it’s his first time here?
Ye-Hyeon was very flustered, but smiled calmly.
“Yes. I saw a sign on my way here earlier.”
“Oh, really? Go ahead. I’ll be waiting.”
Fortunately, Baek Hae-Won willingly sent Ye-Hyeon.
The reason is that Baek Hae-won is watching him anyway, so he thought he should be more careful.
When Ye-Hyeon returned, the group moved to the weapons store.
“After you get used to fighting, it’s better to change the type of weapon. You don’t know what’s right for you unless you try it on. Now it’s enough just to see how many different weapons there are.”
Baek Hae-Won laughed hard at Yoon Seung-Jae.
In the early days of the Hunter community, it was common to use ready-made products displayed in weapons stores, and later visit blacksmiths to customize them to suit your taste.
Ye-Hyeon didn’t know because he used the things he bought at the weapon store, but the difference seemed to be big even if the length of the test was only 1cm different.
Baek Hae-Won followed Ye-Hyeon at the weapon store.
“What kind of weapon did you get, Ye-Hyeon? Staff? Wand?”
“That’s an unusual choice.'”
“I learned swordsmanship at the training center.”
In any case, the buff attached to the staff was all such as increasing the speed or increasing the damage of flame magic.
What Ye-Hyeon needs is increasing the total amount of mana or regeneration of mana, but finding items related to mana was harder than picking stars in the sky.
Rather than carrying a long useless stick, it was more efficient to carry a sword that even a clumsy person could handle.
“I have a staff I used to use, would it be okay if I gave it to you?”
Ye-Hyeon asked in a loud voice at the sudden words.
“I’m so sorry that I even received a weapon.”
“It’s been a while since I used it, so you don’t have to feel burdened. It’s been well taken care of though, so it should be usable for a while. Can you accept this as a bribe to impress the leader?”
Baek Hae-Won winked and said softly.
Ye-Hyeon did not readily say that he understood.
Looking around the weapon store, Ye-Hyeon was only looking for a chance to contact Baek Hae-won.
When they look at things together, your fingertips touch or your shoulders could touch.
Through out they collar didn’t even touch.
It may be just a coincidence, but Ye-Hyeon seemed to feel an invisible line, a very open but clear line
It felt completely different from Shin Do-Gyeom.
If Shin Do-gyeom was sensitive and sensed suspicious signs and was wary, Baek Hae-Won consciously maintained a certain sense of distance.
Including not only physical distancing but also psychological distancing.
He talked to him gently and told him various things, but Baek Hae-won didn’t feel friendly, perhaps because of the subtle distance.
“….Thank you. I’ll use it well. “
“I have to give you the bribe.”
“I’ll bring it when I go to the dungeon the day after tomorrow.”
However, there was no reason to refuse.
“What are you two talking about that is so funny?”
Yoon Seung-Jae trudged up to him after he had looked around the inside of the store.
“It’s a secret.”
Baek Hae-Won exaggeratedly put his index finger on her lips as if they had talked about something great.
“What is it? Hunter Baek Hae-won Hunter… Can I just call youHyung?”
Yoon Seung-Jae rolled his eyes and asked boldly.
It seemed to be cumbersome to name him with honorifics.
As expected, he’s very sociable.
Yoon Seung-Jae did not seem to like Baek Hae-Won very much when he experienced the gate, but he seemed to have opened his mind quickly, perhaps because he was simple.
Ye-Hyeon peeped at Baek Hae-Won, who readily answered.
He knows he have to take this opportunity to ask, but he didn’t think Baek Hae-Won would make any sound.Soon, Kwon Joo-ho returned.
Baek Hae-Won’s cell phone rang as soon as he was about to bring up something.
“I’m sorry. I’ve got a call from the headquarters, so I’ll have to go. That’s too bad. Then I’ll meet you the day after tomorrow morning.”
Perhaps it was an urgent call, but Baek Hae-Won left in a hurry.
Yes, of course! He doesn’t know what the project was, but Baek Hae-Won couldn’t be free.
“What are you going to do now?”
“I’ll report when I get back to the dorm. I’ll also set a date for discharge.”
Ye-Hyeon made eye contact with Kwon Joo-ho, answering with a natural tone.
“What would you do with Kwon Joo-Ho? Are you going to look around more? Or do you want to go back with me?”
He had never had a proper conversation with him even before regression, so he didn’t have to call Kwon Joo-ho.
On top of that, it was very awkward to call Kwon Joo-ho by his name because he called him fish thorn inside every time.
Kwon Joo-ho stared at Ye-Hyeon.
He wanted to step back because he was staring at he so hard.
“What do you want me to do?”
Ye-Hyeon tried to straighten his frowning brows.
The conversation did not continue because there was no response.
Kwon Joo-ho, who was criticized the most for I don’t think he can’t speak was because he was ignoring people just because he’s good.
As there are many people who like Kwon Joo-ho, there were many people who felt jealous and inferior to Kwon Joo-ho.
Ye-Hyeon gave up listening to the answer and moved.
Kwon Joo-Ho followed behind quietly.
“Where are you going to live when you leave the dorm?”
“I have to go into the Hunter’s quarters.”
Even if he could cure it with skill, it was clear that he would have a hard time looking for it.
His sister hid it, but he felt like she met Kim Jin-Sung again, who almost became his brother-in-law in Busan.
He held his sister’s ankle in many ways, but he didn’t want to interfere with her relationship.
Ye-Hyeon smiled bitterly.
