Status abnormality: dizziness (B)’ duration has ended.
After about an hour, Ye-Hyeon’s dizziness disappeared, and the group started moving again.
While watching the battle, Ye-Hyeon recalled a short review.
The atmosphere was not this tense this morning, but there was no laughter.
Perhaps because they thought Ye-Hyeon collapsed due to the aftereffects of yesterday’s accident.
The only conversations that came and went were words that were essential for the battle and words that worried about Ye-Hyeon.
“Don’t forget there’s one left in the sky!”
Originally, the three people with excellent potential seemed to absorb the experience when Baek Hae-Won guided them with maximum concentration.
If someone says there are four veteran hunters, they’ll believe it.
The four moved as if they were used to dealing with Scream Raven.
Ye-Hyeon kept a proper distance and carefully looked at the monsters.
Shin Do-Gyeom told him to hide far away, but it was rather dangerous if he distanced himself too much.
He didn’t see a monster with unusually large or red pupils like the strange Scream Raven he saw yesterday.
The last remaining Scream Raven eventually lost its wings and fell.
Baek Hae-Won praised.
As soon as the battle was over, Shin Do-Gyeom approached Kwon Joo-Ho even before he drew his arrows from the Scream Raven.
‘Are they going to fight again? But the atmosphere was a little different.’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
“I told you I’d catch anything that pops out to the right.”
“It was dangerous because another monster immediately followed.”
“So, in that case, you should go back this way…”
Ye-Hyeon doubted his ears.
It was not a fight but an exchange of opinions.
Ye-Hyeon blinked in surprise.
“……What happened while I fainted?”
Ye-Hyeon couldn’t resist his curiosity and asked Baek Hae-Won as if whispering.
They didn’t fight this morning either, but it was because there was no reason to fight, and they were cold to each other.
Seeing Shin Do-Gyeom and Kwon Joo-Ho calmly continue their conversation with stern faces was strange.
“Well, I don’t know. Thanks to you, the two of them got closer.
“Because of me?”
Ye-Hyeon’s expression became serious.
‘Did they think they should work harder because the leader is like this?’ Ye-Hyeon begins to wonder.
It’s a relief, but he didn’t feel very good.
“If I gave up one thing, shouldn’t you also give up one thing?”
Of course, they just started talking, but they didn’t suddenly get along, so Shin Do-Gyeom sometimes raised his voice.
Still, it was a great improvement.
After returning from the gate, the group decided to rest for a week.
The longer the break, the more Yoon Seung-Jae or Shin Do-Gyeom used to show that they hated it, but this time, both were quiet.
After resting well for two days, Ye-Hyeon visited his sister’s house on Sunday morning.
His sister set up a big breakfast table even though he said he would have breakfast elsewhere.
Ye-Hyeon had to eat breakfast twice.
“Your face is thin. Isn’t it hard being a hunter?
“What are you talking about? I’ve been eating well lately.”
Ye-Hyeon had been eating a lot lately to keep up with the group’s monstrous stamina.
“……Can’t we just live together again?”
When Ye-Hyeon refused, his sister slapped his back.
Ye-Hyeon couldn’t make a sound when his sister hit his back.
It still hurts to the point of tears.
“Hey, can I move this? Should I clean that up, too?”
“Go and sit down, all right.”
After finishing the meal quickly, Ye-Hyeon followed his sister around.
“Are you going to eat watermelon? Give it to me. I’ll cut it.”
His sister grabbed the refrigerator door and burst out laughing.
“Why are you doing something you haven’t done before? Do you like me that much?”
When Ye-Hyeon nodded his head innocently, his sister’s eyes widened.
Ye-Hyeon’s neck was burning, but he lowered his eyes as calmly as possible.
He copies what he learned from Yoon Seung-Jae, but it is more challenging than he thought.
“Wow. Are you sick?”
His sister playfully touched Ye-Hyeon’s forehead.
The rough palms were warm.
Ye-Hyeon, who was moved by the warm warmth, hugged his sister.
His sister seemed surprised because they rarely hug or comfort each other affectionately.
Ye-Hyeon carefully bent his upper body and leaned his cheek on his sister’s shoulder.
For Ye-Hyeon, his sister was his foundation, a spiritual pillar, and a cozy cradle.
Ye-Hyeon entirely relied on his sister but hid it in case his sister would feel burdened.
Ye-Hyeon would be curt when she stood in front of his sister rather than expressing affection to her because of his pride and embarrassment.
However, the last time Yoon Seung-Jae relied on him emotionally, Ye-Hyeon realized that it didn’t feel bad.
It was strange when his stomach felt itchy, and he was about to sneeze.
‘……weird.’ Ye-Hyeon thought.
Ye-Hyeon looked down at the top of his head.
The older sister, reflected in Ye-Hyeon’s eyes, was an adult.
She always felt much bigger, but she was much smaller than him.
It would be so natural to have a height difference, but it was a little shocking to Ye-Hyeon.
Maybe it was because Ye-Hyeon lived among strong men, but his sister felt more slender.
Ye-Hyeon took a big breath.
He knew the source of the very nostalgic feeling he felt on the night he comforted Yoon Seung-Jae, who was crying.
“What’s wrong with you?”
“Thank you, noona.”
“……Let’s live happily for a long time.”
He now understood Yoon Seung-Jae’s words, asking him to live a long life.
Ye-Hyeon is sure Yoon Seung-Jae didn’t feel this way.
The depth of feelings of siblings and parents is different.
“I’m happy as long as you’re happy.”
Ye-Hyeon’s sister laughed hard and patted Ye-Hyeon’s back.
Ye-Hyeon bit his lower lip.
“Don’t say that. I’m going to be mad. You’re really happy when you’re happy. What does it have to do with me being happy?”
“Oh, my. Did you suddenly grow up or become a child?”
“……I don’t know.”
Ye-Hyeon replied indifferently and took a deep breath.
He likes the soft and cozy feeling.
Once he acted like a baby in front of his sister, he felt like he was becoming a child.
Ye-Hyeon smiled and blinked his eyelids slowly.
It was warm and peaceful enough to relieve his accumulated nervousness while going in and out of the gate.
It was thanks to the bond of family.
He became curious about how Yoon Seung-Jae felt while clinging to him.
Ye-Hyeon’s sister poked Ye-Hyeon in the ribs.
“Ye-Hyeon, it’s uncomfortable. Can you stop it and let go?”
His sister cut the watermelon for dessert. Ye-Hyeon rested his chin on the table and chewed on the sweet pulp.
“How’s the party? Did you get close?”
Ye-Hyeon’s sister put down her knife and asked carefully.
She remembered Ye-Hyeon saying that it was difficult because it hadn’t been long since they had worked together.
Ye-Hyeon narrowed his eyes.
It was unclear if he could say they got close.
“Why? Did something happen? Did you fight?”
“No, it’s not like that.”
Shin Do-Gyeom and Kwon Joo-Ho had arguments, but they did not fight.
“Everyone turned out to be nice. They are kind and take good care of me. Some people worry more than Noona.” Ye-Hyeon explained as well as he could.
“You have to be careful.”
Ye-Hyeon’s sister’s worries were endless.
Ye-Hyeon nodded and leaned back on the chair.
“You can stop working, sister.”
Ye-Hyeon said it as calmly as possible and as if it was nothing.
That’s what he had wanted to say.
His sister’s mouth gaped open as if it was something she had never expected.
Ye-Hyeon clenched his fist under the table.
“Our Ye-Hyeon is all grown up.”
“Thanks to you.”
“Wow, you know how to say that?”
His sister looked at Ye-Hyeon with a pleasing look.
Ye-Hyeon was embarrassed, so he fiddled with his earlobes for no reason and turned his eyes away.
“I’m so touched. Thank you for just saying it.”
“I’m serious. Please take it seriously, too.”
“……Yes, I see.”
She was forced to answer because she couldn’t beat him.
Her cell phone rang briefly.
Ye-Hyeon’s sister picked up her phone while looking at Ye-Hyeon.
“…Is it him?”
Ye-Hyeon narrowed his eyes.
Come to think of it.
If it was going well with Kim Jin-Sung, he could have made an appointment for a date on the weekend.
“Why? Who is it?”
When Ye-Hyeon tilted his upper body forward and showed interest, his sister quickly turned off the screen and turned her phone upside down on the table.
She didn’t seem to want to go out.
Ye-Hyeon bit his lips to hold back the laughter that was about to come out.
He felt very good because he was still his sister’s priority.
“Noona, I’ll have to go later. I have something to buy, but I forgot.”
So he decided to help his sister a little bit in her relationship.
He was going to Hunter Market tomorrow but naturally made something up.
“Are you going?”
“Yeah. Sorry, I’ll be back soon.”
His sister was disappointed, but Ye-Hyeon smiled.
