27. Medium gate sweep (2)
Lee Young-shin approached Baek Hae-won and tried to put his arm on Baek Hae-won’s shoulder, who was taller.
Baek Hae-Won avoided one step faster. Lee Young-Shin stumbled unsightly.
Laughter burst out from the mouths of those around him watching with half interest and worry.
“Damn, why are you laughing?”
Lee Young-Shin gave a tantrum by pointing fingers everywhere.
Before had no choice but to endure it because he was a porter, but not Baek Hae Won.’
Ye-Hyeon clenched his hands. Had it not been for helping as a mentor, Baek Hae-Won would not have met a bastard like Lee Young-Shin wandering in the C-class dungeon or been publicly insulted this way. He was terribly sorry.
He is angry, but…….”
Ye-Hyeon bit his lips. Baek Hae-Won, the party involved, was also still. Ye-Hyeon was worried that he could intervene.
Because there are rumors that Baek Hae-Won is nice, Lee Young-Shin thinks he’s a pushover and acts like that.’
Ye-Hyeon hated that good and gentle person were treated like pushovers.
Of course, Baek Hae-Won, whom Ye-Hyeon knew, was not the only person to suffer. However, he was in a disadvantageous situation in case a fight broke out because he was the face of the association and could receive a lot of attention.
What should he do?
It was annoying because it didn’t seem like anyone else’s business. In addition, he was even angrier because Baek Hae-Won seemed strangely familiar with this situation.
“You must be picky ’cause you are pretty.”
As soon as he saw Lee Young-Shin’s insidious smile, Ye-Hyeon couldn’t take it anymore.
Ye-Hyeon grabbed Baek Hae-Won’s wrist.
“We don’t need to hear more rubbish.”
It was safe to say that most of the false rumors about Ye-Hyeon, such as selling his body or spreading his legs to someone, came from Lee Young-Shin’s group. He couldn’t let Baek Hae-Won hear such dogshit talk.
Ye-Hyeon moved to the opposite side of Lee Young-Shin.
“Hey, can’t you see Hunter Baek Hae-Won talking to me right now? Hey!”
“Hyung, wait a minute. Ye-Hyeon, isn’t it him? Why, that….”
One of the group members caught Lee Young-Shin, who was trying to chase him with a shout.
Ye-Hyeon took advantage of the gap and quickly dug into the crowd. When Ye-Hyeon was far from Lee Young-Shin, Baek Hae-Won released his wrist.
“How can there be anyone who talks like that?”
“You were uncomfortable earlier, right? I’m sorry it’s because of me.”
Baek Hae-Won gently smoothed Ye-Hyeon’s hood, which was crumpled.
“Why is it your fault? He did the wrong thing. Don’t listen to such nonsense next time. It’s best to avoid shit.”
It kept playing over and over again. The more Ye-Hyeon thought about it, the more he regretted staying still.
‘Should I go back and say something?’
However, if you were a person who has common sense, you would have understood it earlier.
Baek Hae-Won, watching Ye-Hyeon get angry as if it was his own business, suddenly burst into laughter.
[system] You got 10 points of intimacy.
“Even though the intimacy is zero, the intimacy point can go up.”’
Ye-Hyeon stared blankly at Baek Hae-Won, smiling brightly. However, he was not very happy even though the point went up.
When he is in trouble and can’t do anything, and then, later on, you’re going to give us an intimacy point?
Instead, he felt sorry for Baek Hae-won.
“……It’s because you are too nice.”
Ye-Hyeon sighed deeply and expressed his dissatisfaction.
Baek Hae-Won laughed, bending down to his waist as if he had heard something funny.
“Thank you for looking at me like that.”
Baek Hae-Won, who had stopped laughing long ago, leaned toward Ye-Hyeon with a clear smile. Even the appearance was excellent, so he felt frustrated.
“Oh, here they are.”
When he thought it was a little noisy, Lee Young-Shin seemed to have followed. The group behind him was gone. Where did they leave it?
Ye-Hyeon was going to kick Lee Young-Shin in the shin as soon as he said one more word to Baek Hae-Won. However, Lee Young-shin’s eyes were on Ye-Hyeon, not Baek Hae-Won.
“I heard you’re the new healer from the rumor. Why do you dress like that?”
Should he advertise himself as the healer?’
Ye-Hyeon sarcastically said inside his head.
It was a little, no, a lot of trouble to get caught being a healer.
If it’s just to bully Baek Hae-Won, you can ignore or slap him, but if it’s for a healer, it is different. It was obvious that Lee Young-Shin would do everything he could to get the healer.
What should he do?
This scene was persistent and terrible. Lee Young-Shin never let go of the grand prize he took once.
Once branded as an object of conciliation, it was evident that he would stick to him whatever Ye-Hyeon said.
“You were upset that I invited only Hunter Baek Hae-Won, right? You can come with me on the weekend. You don’t know yet because you are new, but you must build friendships with your fellow hunters.”
Lee Young-Shin suppressed his harsh voice, which seemed to scratch iron, and spoke as gentlemanly as possible.
However, whatever the tone, his words were all nonsense. It was annoying.
Baek Hae-Won sighed next to him. Baek Hae-Won seemed to have difficulty tolerating Lee Young-Shin’s behavior.
It was when Ye-Hyeon couldn’t resist and tried to shoot back. Someone grabbed Ye-Hyeon’s shoulder and pulled him back.
Ye-Hyeon stepped back and looked up at the man passing. The gray-brown hair was barely visible. Only when Shin Do-Gyeom bent his neck did Ye-Hyeon see the face of the person who pulled him.
Shin Do-Gyeom strode toward Lee Young-Shin. The longbow on his back shook.
“I wondered what an old man is doing here. Stop flirting with him and scram.”
Ye-Hyeon pursed his lips and bit them.
“What? Who are you calling an old man? You trash, can’t you tell you are bothering us?” Lee Young-Shin blatantly pointed at Shin Do-Gyeom.
“I think you’re the one who can’t tell.”
Shin Do-Gyeom replied without hesitation, and the atmosphere quickly became tense.
It was refreshing to see Shin Do-Gyeom answer back, but he thought there would be a fight if things kept going this way. Ye-Hyeon looked at Baek Hae-Won as if he were asking for help without realizing it.
Baek Hae-Won shrugged his shoulders with a calm face that did not match the situation. He is acting like a bystander.
At that time, Lee Young-Shin wriggled his finger in the air. It felt like he was going to use his Ability.
As many hunters gathered, there were frequent arguments in front of the gate. However, it was extremely rare for it to spread to physical collisions.
The fight between the hunters was life-threatening. The association severely punished the use of Ability against humans. In severe cases, the disqualification of the hunter was even mentioned.
Shin Do-Gyeom’s reflexes could avoid Lee Young-Shin’s attack, but if he responds with anger, the problem will grow.
“Hunter Lee Young-Shin.”
At that time, Baek Hae-Won called Lee Young-Shin in a cold voice that he had never heard before. It was not a sweet smile of Hunter Baek Hae-Won, but a cold association executive Baek Hae-Won.
Ye-Hyeon was surprised by the unfamiliar appearance he had never seen before. A cold aura enveloped Baek Hae-Won.
Lee Young-Shin clenched his fist reluctantly, clicking his tongue. Rather than being afraid of Baek Hae-Won, he worries because of the punishment.
“Why? Were you scared?”
Shin Do-Gyeom provoked Lee Young-Shin without fear.
“What can a bowsman even do? All you can do is shoot arrows from afar like a coward. Drop that crap now and learn something else. Then I’ll deal with you then.”
Lee Young-Shin also sarcastically laugh without losing.
While Shin Do-Gyeom and Lee Young-Shin were in a tense confrontation, Ye-Hyeon heard footsteps from behind.
“Hyung, what’s up?”
It was Yoon Seung-Jae. Yoon Seung-Jae rubbed his eyes with a drowsy expression.
“Hey, Yoon Seung-Jae. You should protect your owner like a guard dog if you’re a guard dog.”
Shin Do-Gyeom shouted sharply without taking his eyes off Lee Young-Shin.
Yoon Seung-Jae reflexively hugged Ye-Hyeon’s shoulder while angry at Shin Do-Gyeom’s criticism.
“Who is he? What did he do to Hyung?”
Ye-Hyeon didn’t say much. He didn’t want to tell his younger brother, who was eight years younger than him.
Kwon Joo-Ho followed suit. Kwon Joo-Ho looked around for a while. He pressured Lee Young-Shin by standing next to Shin Do-Gyeom as if he had figured out the situation at once.
It is understandable for Shin Do-Gyeom to do this because he hated people like Lee Young-Shin, but he didn’t know why Kwon Joo-Ho was acting up.
Ye-Hyeon stretched out his neck and watched Lee Young-Shin.
Lee Young-shin was only over 170 centimeters tall. He seemed embarrassed when two bigger guys blocked the front like walls. Of course, the difference in size was also extreme.
It’s going to be uncomfortable.
Ye-Hyeon narrowed his eyes and pursed his lips.
The two can apply psychological pressure with their expressionless face. Ye-Hyeon wanted to run away from Kwon Joo-Ho and apologize to Shin Do-Gyeom even though he didn’t do anything wrong.
Lee Young-Shin involuntarily faltered back. Ye-Hyeon was convinced that it would not be just because of the external pressure.
