24. Sudden Quest(1)
However, the atmosphere was strange the next day as well.
“Hyung, If you’re not feeling well, tell me right away.”
Yoon Seung-Jae was still worried as if he was a glass that would break with a light hit.
Even while marching, he was looking around Ye-Hyeon and almost tripped over a stone.
He would be teased for a lifetime, if a hunter who was born with a physical ability like Yoon Seung-Jae, fell on the road.
Yoon Seung-Jae turned around again when Ye-Hyeon made a deflated sound.
‘He is too protective!’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
Ye-Hyeon opened the robe by removing the robe.
Baek Hae-Won willingly lent him a robe when he saw that he kept looking down because he was embarrassed by the skin showing through his tattered clothes throughout breakfast.
Ye-Hyeon hesitated for a moment, but he couldn’t go around showing half of his body from his belly button to his spine.
‘There was a reason for it being expensive!’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
Certainly, the feel on the body was so good.
He even felt sorry to compare it with the cheap equipment that Ye-Hyeon had worn so far.
Instead, the sleeves rolled up as soft as they were kept flowing down.
Baek Hae-Won was pretty and had long and thin limbs, so they thought have would have a similar physique, but the robe sleeves covered the back of his hand.
On top of that, he cut off the bottom quite a bit yesterday, and the length was just right.
Ye-Hyeon’s pride was hurt, but he couldn’t show it.
Ye-Hyeon looked at the party member with cold eyes.
It’s just a problem because there are only people with excellent physicality around, and Ye-Hyeon.
Ye-Hyeon also made eye contact with Kwon Joo-ho.
He seems to be looking at his stomach more often than usual.
Ye-Hyeon wanted to say, “If you have something to say, just say it, why do you keep looking at me?”
One thing that has changed is that he used to stare at him even when their met eyes, but now he avoids them.
“It looks good on you.”
Baek Hae-Won quietly compliments Ye-Hyeon as he thought he was burdened when he kept touching the robe.
“That’s right. It looks good on you,”
Yoon Seung-Jae added in a hurry.
Ye-Hyeon thanked him for his compliment, which was empty words.
It was obvious that it would be different from when Baek Hae-Won wore it without looking in the mirror.
Perhaps his dull features are buried in a colorful robe and others don’t even notice his face.
Ye-Hyeon wasn’t particularly insecure about his appearance, but the story was different if the comparison target was Baek Hae-Won.
“Ye-Hyeon, be careful in the front. Do you want me to hold your hand?”
Baek Hae-Won smiled and held out his hand.
It was the same when he stopped Shin Do-Gyeom and Yoon Seung-Jae yesterday.
Ye-Hyeon went down the slope with a rock instead of Baek Hae-Won’s hand.
Fortunately, there was quite a lot of downhill today.
Ye-Hyeon fiddled with his earlobes as he looked at the back of Shin Do-Gyeom walking on the slope like a flat ground.
Today, Shin Do-Gyeom turned around calmly without arguing with anyone.
He was a little nervous because everyone was quiet.
After a brief conversation, there was an awkward silence again.
Ye-Hyeon took a big breath because he was frustrated.
It would be less suffocating if they fought.
The monster-free section continued for a long time in the morning.
Ye-Hyeon swept his hair over and over again for no reason.
Ye-Hyeon was thirsty and just drinking water drew attention from all sides.
It was hard to break the stuffy silence.
A quest window popped up with a cheerful notification.
Kiss one of the targets.
[Time limit: 0 hours and 59 minutes]
If successful: Affection point +30
failure: abnormal condition (???)
Ye-Hyeon, who confirmed the contents of the quest, spewed water in his mouth.
“Are you sick?”
Yoon Seung-Jae, who was standing in front of him, ran quickly.
He kept asking if he hurts just like he did in the morning.
“No, I just choked on water.”
“ Hmmm. Shall we take a break?”
Baek Hae-Won smiled at Ye-Hyeon’s excuse and pointed to a flat rock.
“No! Why are we taking a break Hunter Baek Hae-Won? I don’t feel anything.”
Ye-Hyeon hurriedly denied it and rubbed the mouth with the back of his hand.
He felt like he was going to break into a cold sweat.
“Hyung, be careful.”
Yoon Seung-Jae grumbled and moved again.
As the two became less interested, Ye-Hyeon once again read the quest.
However, reading it again did not mean anything to him.
‘Is this thing crazy? Kiss in this atmosphere? All of a sudden?’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
Ye-Hyeon unconsciously fiddled with his wet lips and grabbed his fist in surprise.
It’s a ridiculous quest, but the success reward was 30 points for affection.
If he succeeds, he’ll get another skill soon as he gets a total of 80 points.
A light kiss was also a kiss in English.
Ye-Hyeon touched his front teeth with his tongue.
It was hard to raise the point of affection.
He was greedy to try it with his eyes closed.
He was seriously worried and his cheeks were tingling.
When he turned his head, he noticed Kwon Joo-ho staring.
It felt like a warning not to disturb, or not to do anything stupid.
Ye-Hyeon’s eyes automatically turned to his lips.
Kwon Joo-ho’s lips were gentle but clear.
The ratio of the upper and lower lips is similar and the lips are thick to the corner of the mouth.
Overall, he was the only one with a straight face that had a soft shape with lips.
Ye-Hyeon, who was staring blankly at Kwon Joo-ho, belatedly turned his head.
‘Choi Ye-Hyeon you’re crazy now.’
It was Kwon Joo-ho, not anyone else.
No matter how much is the compensation, it was crazy to peek at Kwon Joo-ho’s lips, who is not even the target.
Then… Ye-Hyeon’s eyes wandered around and finally turned to Shin Do-Gyeom.
His lips, which were tightly closed in a straight line, were thin.
Although the color of the lips was rather pale, it played a role in emphasizing the sensitive impression rather than looking sick.
The sharp corners of his mouth dug deeper every time Shin Do-Gyeom smiled.
‘I can’t do it to Shin Do Gyeom, no matter how desperate I am to have skills’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
If Ye-Hyeon tries to kiss Shin Do-Gyeom, he will be slapped on the cheek even before he can kiss him.
It wouldn’t be strange at all if the intimacy dropped to -100 points at once.
The imagination of being beaten by Shin Do-Gyeom sent chills down his spine.
Ye-Hyeon shook his head.
‘Then Baek Hae-Won?’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
In contrast Shin Do-Gyeom, the reddish lips with vivid blood shone moistly as if he had applied lip balm.
Baek Hae-Won’s lips were not as large, small, thick, or thin as if it was carved in golden proportions.
The lips that always drew smooth lines seemed to be soft to the touch.
‘Not Baek Hae-Won!’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
Baek Hae-Won had just been registered as a target.
Ye-Hyeon already ruined Yoon Seung-Jae and Shin Do-Gyeom’s impression of him from the first meeting.
If he kisses Baek Hae-Won right away, he will laugh awkwardly, and Ye-Hyeon will be able to calm the situation without much difficulty.
However, it would be impossible to restore the intimacy that has fallen vertically since then.
He couldn’t go back to how things were before while trying to get 30 points of affection.
But he can’t hold Yoon Seung-Jae and kiss him.
Ye-Hyeon sighed deeply.
It’s lunchtime soon, so he thought he’d have to think about it until then.
In the meantime, there were two battles, but there was only a kiss on Ye-Hyeon’s head.
Without realizing it, he kept walking while looking at the target’s lip.
When he couldn’t manage his eyes, Ye-Hyeon covered his head with the hood of the robe.
The more he thought about it, the more he felt sorry that he didn’t try anything.
‘……Should I give up after kissing first and if it doesn’t work?’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
There was a problem with the failure penalty, but Ye-Hyeon was able to hide it as much as he wanted because he didn’t participate in the battle.
“We will take a break here.”
The break finally came when there were more than 15 minutes left of the quest time limit.
Ye-Hyeon quickly approached the place where he put down the water bottle.
“I will go get some water…”
Ye-Hyeon was going to say he would get some water, but Kwon Joo-ho snatched the water bottle from his hands.
Ye-Hyeon was speechless and lost his words.
He must have seen him reach out first, but Kwon Joo-ho left without looking at Ye-Hyeon.
‘Is this bothering him?’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
Ye-Hyeon tilted his head.
If it were Yoon Seung-Jae or Baek Hae-Won, he would have taken it well as being worried, but since the opponent was Kwon Joo-ho, it felt like he took it away because it was annoying to see a poor guy making a face.
“I’m going to wash my hands for a second.”
Ye-Hyeon eventually stood up empty-handed.
“Let’s go together.”
As expected, Yoon Seung-Jae followed as if he had been waiting.
Ye-Hyeon purposely headed toward the side where many large rocks and the view were covered.
He’s gonna kiss YSJ?????? Oh god. The author is giving me hope just to take it back again ☠️☠️☠️
