21. Adaptation (1)
Kwon Joo-Ho and Shin Do-Gyeom continued to collide, and Ye-Hyeon was eventually excluded from the night watch, but the gate sweep, in which he participated for the first time as a party, was managed to end safely.
When Ye-Hyeon’s party’s mission was completed, they would go to the next gate either in 2 days the shortest time or 5days time as the longest.
Shin Do-Gyeom and Yoon Seung-Jae complained about the slow schedule, but Baek Hae-Won, a mentor, was adamant.
“There’s nothing more important than getting enough rest. Remember, for Hunter, too much is death.”
Baek Hae-Won said, frowning with a rare smileless expression.
Nevertheless, Ye-Hyeon swallowed a bitter smile, recalling his still-sweet face.
Rest was a luxury for the porter.
The porter paid far less than the hunter who participated in the battle.
If ordinary hunters entered the dungeon about 10 days a month, the porter had to work “almost” twice as much to manage to make ends meet.
Ye-Hyeon, who had a big debt, often left the gate in the morning and entered another gate that afternoon, let alone on holidays.
Now the situation was so good that it was embarrassing to compare it with that time.
Even if Ye-Hyeon only chased Baek Hae-Won’s backside, 1 million won was stuck in his bank account.
Considering that the average C-class small sweep fee was 300,000 won, monopolizing one route was more powerful than Ye-Hyeon imagined.
‘But I can’t just be happy.” Ye-Hyeon thought.
Ye-Hyeon sighed for a long time and dipped his fingertips into a calm lake where the clouds were reflected.
The sun was warm and the breeze was breezy, so it seemed like a picnic. If it weren’t for the corpse of the frog tongue, the monster that ate the frogs on the road, it would have been a perfect scene.
Before regressing, it was already too much just to survive. He couldn’t afford to look around. It seemed to be worth it when he saw that the scenery was beautiful.
Ye-Hyeon jumped over the frog tongue, which stretched long on the floor, and approached the group.
This was already the seventh gate.
Although they need to discuss with the party members what gate to enter and decide, the leader Ye-Hyeon left the choice entirely to Baek Hae-Won.
Perhaps because Ye-Hyeon received Baek Hae-Won’s feedback, others seemed to have no complaints.
Without much thought, Baek Hae-Won followed him as he wanted, but now Ye-Hyeon sees that none of the seven dungeons overlapped.
There is countless topography of dungeons, but the type was limited to Class C gate.
So did the monsters.
Baek Hae-Won didn’t make it obvious, but Ye-Hyeon felt that he chose it carefully to let the party experience as many types of monsters as possible and as diverse as possible.
It was such a great effort that Ye-Hyeon was sorry that he doubted his real intention, no, it didn’t matter if he had these plans.
The three of them absorbed it.
Baek Hae-Won sometimes smiled quietly and contentedly.
In the eyes of Ye-Hyeon, who watched the battle over his shoulder, the three grew dramatically.
On the other hand, the U.S. government’s attack was in place.
It was on the way to ruin.
Ye-Hyeon looked at Yoon Seung-Jae, shaking off the thick body fluid on his shield.
What Ye-Hyeon learned new was that Yoon Seung-Jae was a simple single cell that only knew one thing at a time.
Yoon Seung-Jae seemed to have fallen in love after going through a proper battle. Battle was the only thing in his head.
Yoon Seung-Jae sometimes expressed his excitement, saying,
“What I did at the camp was not a proper sweep, but a sweep experience.”
It was the same.
Shin Do-Gyeom’s closeness edged down and broke through -40 points.
It was the result of deciding to actively talk to him because he kept losing his intimacy no matter what he did.
Baek Hae-Won rarely showed a gap, so he had no chance for contact.
Ye-Hyeon hands a water bottle to Kwon Joo-Ho, who is looking around, soothing his mixed feelings.
Ye-Hyeon tried his best to get close to the party members for the past month, but the results were not good.
Ye-Hyeon narrowly grabbed the bottom of the water bottle and handed it over. Kwon Joo-Ho slowly picked up the opposite end.
The reaction seemed to be forced to accept it when Ye-Hyeon gave it to him even though he didn’t want to, so Ye-Hyeon felt like he was receiving silent criticism even after taking care of him.
I don’t want to touch it either.’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
Ye-Hyeon grumbled inside for no reason.
“Kwon Joo-Ho, you attacked from the right side at the end, right? Didn’t I interrupt you?”
Yoon Seung-Jae, who suddenly approached, asked Kwon Joo-Ho, putting his arm around Ye-Hyeon’s shoulder.
Kwon Joo-Ho answered quietly, looking at Yoon Seung-Jae’s hand.
At that moment, Ye-Hyeon swallowed.
As Ye-Hyeon watched from the side, Kwon Joo-Ho was very quiet.
But when Kwon Joo-Ho needed to, he was good at talking.
Except when Ye-Hyeon talks to him.
Whether he intentionally ignored him or not Kwon Joo-Ho closed his mouth like a clam when Ye-Hyeon asked something.
“Ha. You don’t want to talk to me, do you?”
Even though Ye-Hyeon didn’t, he was filled with hateful air. It was annoying day by day because he only chose only hateful things.
Ye-Hyeon, who had been huffing for a while, suddenly drooped his shoulders.
‘If the target is coming on its own… I don’t want to admit it, but if there is anyone who is suspected of being the target after Baek Hae-Won, it was Kwon Joo-Ho. Otherwise, the No. 1 ranking would not have rolled in without any signs. Isn’t Kwon Kwon Joo-Ho going to start with minus 100 points? Is it minus 100 points for affection?’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
It will probably be completely different to estimate that it will be negative 100 points and to check it with his own eyes.
To be honest, it was too much for Yoon Seung-Jae and Shin Do-Gyeom. Unlike Baek Hae-Won, even if Kwon Joo-Ho was registered as a target, it was obvious that the attack would be far away right now.
Kwon Joo-Ho was the No. 1in the future. Considering the S-class super-large boss, Kwon Joo-Ho was a talented person who he had to beg to stay at the party even if he was holding his pants.
However, the only advantage right now was the “additional experience +25%”.
‘Let’s do it in order. In order!’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
If Ye-Hyeon ate anything in a hurry, he would have an upset stomach.
It is not too late to check Baek Hae-Won first and then Kwon Joo-Ho.
The possibility that neither of them will be targeted could not be completely ruled out.
“Let’s take a half-hour break here.”
Yoon Seung-Jae sounded disappointed if he wanted to fight more.
Ye-Hyeon slumped on the fluffy grass.
Fortunately, the level has risen considerably thanks to the additional experience increase to 50%.
Ye-Hyeon just shot level 17 yesterday.
In the meantime, Kwon Joo-Ho, Shin Do-Gyeom, and Yoon Seung-Jae have already surpassed level 30.
The difference will inevitably widen, but it was still regrettable.
‘Please have a new skill at level 20,’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
Ye-Hyeon took a cloth out of his pocket with a prayer and wiped his sword.
It was as good as new because Ye-Hyeon didn’t have to use it in practice.
While looking for stains, Baek Hae-Won’s back was accidentally reflected on the surface of a mirror-smooth sword.
Baek Hae-Won was crouching next to Kwon Joo-Ho and talking.
Perhaps because they were the same age, Baek Hae-Won and Kwon Joo-Ho were surprisingly close.
Ye-Hyeon bit his lower lip with a serious expression.
Baek Hae-Won naturally moved away as Ye-Hyeon approached him while talking naturally.
Their personal space seemed further than the average person.
It’s best to act like he is healing him normally, but…!
However, Baek Hae-won, an A-class hunter comparable to S-class, could not have been injured in the C-class dungeon.
‘If Baek Hae-Won gets hurt, I’m just a dead man!’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
Sometimes Ye-Hyeon felt like an insidious pervert just thinking about touching Baek Hae-Won.
Ye-Hyeon sighed deeply and felt a blur of activity behind him.
“Why do you wipe something you don’t use?”
Ye-Hyeon rolled his eyes with an ambiguous expression and looked back while managing his expression.
Shin Do-Gyeom with his arms crossed was looking down at Ye-Hyeon with disapproval.
“I might need to use it. I have to take care of it.”
“Do you know how to handle it?”
Shin Do-Gyeom snorted.
The sneer was obvious to anyone.
After the intimacy surpassed -40 points, Shin Do-Gyeom began to pick a fight with Ye-Hyeon.
“Yeah, this is Shin Do-Gyeom,” he said fighting openly, but Ye-Hyeon was not too agitated.
Shin Do-Gyeom was originally a person who said what he wanted to say.
In the meantime, Shin Do-Gyeom misunderstood Ye-Hyeon as a stalker, so even if it was a quarrel that he had completely ignored, it was ambiguous to say that he was glad that Ye-Hyeon talked to Shin Do-Gyeom first.
“Of course, I took the class hard.” Ye-Hyeon smiled brightly, folding his eyes half-moon.
“It’s different to swing as much as you can and to know how to use it properly.”
It was a bitter way of saying it as if he was telling a fool the obvious.
Ye-Hyeon heard you can’t spit on a smiling face, but Shin Do-Gyeom only spit well.
Ye-Hyeon also got emotional for a moment.
I really want to know what’s up with Shin Do-Gyeom. Is it the pressure of being an archer? The love rivals? Nani???
