27. Medium gate sweep (5)
“My brother is a high-quality human resource, so treat small wounds yourself.”
He only hangs Mana Potion instead of vitality Potion on his waist and drinks Mana Potion after two or three treatments. Yoon Seung-Jae would be a fool if he didn’t notice.
“Wow, I’m speechless. Are you in the same party as a Healer? You’re a coward.”
“Oh, come on. You are the one going around and complaining about an invisible wound. Don’t you think so?” Yoon Seung-Jae opened his eyes wide and pushed the tanker with a sharp tone that he had never heard before.
Yoon Seung-Jae was openly annoyed when he fought with Shin Do-Gyeom, but it sounded like a grumble, so it used to sound like whining.
Ye-Hyeon thought that Yoon Seung-Jae was just cute even when he was angry.
But now, rather than a cute appearance, he looked scary. Ye-Hyeon was quite surprised by Yoon Seung-Jae’s unexpected arrival.
It seemed that he was quite upset that he could not argue with Lee Young-Shin because he did not know the situation earlier.
“Didn’t we kill all the monsters?”
Shin Do-Gyeom, listening quietly, smiled and helped out with a word that was a sneer.
“Wow, there are times when Shin Do-Gyeom says the right thing. You didn’t do anything, but why are you proud of your injury?”
“If you find it annoying, you should bring a healer, too. No one will want to go with you because you are too weak.” Yoon Seung-Jae and Shin Do-Gyeom alternately sarcastically.
The tanker couldn’t keep talking, with his face turning sour, perhaps because he didn’t know that a new hunter who did not have even a year of experience would talk back to him back. He couldn’t refute it because it was all true.
‘The group unites when there is a common enemy. Ye-Hyeon didn’t expect Yoon Seung-Jae and Shin Do-Gyeom would get along so well.’
Yoon Seung-Jae flicked his nose. He had no choice but to take sides, but he seemed offended that he and Shin Do-Gyeom agreed.
“Are you kidding me?”
The tanker, who couldn’t overcome his temper, lifted his right arm.
Baek Hae-Won, watching quietly while staying neutral, tilted his head at an angle. His lips were gently bent, but he looked colder than his expressionless face.
Looking at it, Baek Hae-Won didn’t care when they were arguing, but there was no mercy in physical fights.
The tanker couldn’t resist his temper and hesitated to punch him.
“Hey, stop it now.”
“That’s why you shouldn’t come forward and make a fuss…”
Other colleagues of the tanker stopped the tanker, looking at Baek Hae-Won.
“Wait and see, you punks! Look at me!
The tanker was dragged by three people and talked in a typical villain’s line. He struggled with his arms and legs, but he didn’t seem to be trying to get away.
“I can just treat you..….”
Even if it were an ulterior motive, it would have been a test to check whether he was a real healer. Ye-Hyeon didn’t have anything to hide.
Yoon Seung-Jae turned around when Ye-Hyeon murmured.
“I don’t like it. Why do you waste Mana for such a person?”
Yoon Seung-Jae put his arms around Ye-Hyeon’s waist, puffing his cheeks as if he had never been angry.
Ye-Hyeon looked at Shin Do-Gyeom’s side as he moved away. Shin Do-Gyeom just seemed to hate that tanker.
The sweep took an average day longer than it usually took to clear the gate.
Their progress fell behind because the engineering team was called up for the sweep and was significantly worse than the engineering team aiming for a clear.
If the sweep was completed similarly to the gate clear time, it could be seen as perfect.
They worked hard for three days, but the sun went down just before the boss’s room. “Hey, don’t you think it’s too bad? We could have finished it within today if we had a few more groups.”
Yoon Seung-Jae grumbled against Ye-Hyeon’s shoulder. He seemed to have more lingering feelings because he led the battle well without making a mistake.
“I can’t help it. It’s dangerous to fight at night. Well done enough, though. You didn’t make a mistake. I’m proud of you.” Ye-Hyeon raised his finger and tapped his fluffy hair.
“You are saying something obvious.”
Shin Do-Gyeom said unnecessary things as if he were impatient because he couldn’t fight.
Baek Hae-Won beckoned Yoon Seung-Jae, who was furious. Yoon Seung-Jae took a deep breath and closed his eyes.
It was not good to show other hunters they were fighting, even if they fought daily, especially Lee Young-Shin’s men.
A separate campfire was set up.
On the other hand, the atmosphere inside Ye-Hyeon’s party was friendly.
Ye-Hyeon yawned continuously. Usually, camping was over in a day, but no matter how many sleeping bags there were, sleeping on the bare floor for three consecutive days made him tired.
“I’ll get some more dew. Yoon Seung-Jae, can you help me?”
A strong person had to press hard on the grass stem to collect dewdrops the size of a person’s face on a huge grass leaf.
Yoon Seung-Jae hesitated and glanced at Ye-Hyeon.
“Have a safe trip.”
Yoon Seung-Jae looked sad, but when Ye-Hyeon turned away, he was forced to follow Baek Hae-Won.
Ye-Hyeon looked sideways at Shin Do-Gyeom and Kwon Joo-Ho, who were left.
‘I don’t want to be alone with an uncomfortable person, but if it’s the three of them, it is fine.’
It was when Ye-Hyeon was about to enjoy freedom from the chick. Shin Do-Gyeom left the area around the bonfire and headed elsewhere.
“Where are you going?”
Ye-Hyeon woke up vaguely and followed Shin Do-Gyeom a few steps.
“Do I have to report all of my actions?”
“That’s not true, but…….”
Ye-Hyeon turned around with a deep sigh and saw a black wall in front of me.
Ye-Hyeon reflexively took a couple of steps back. It was Kwon Joo-Ho’s chest, not a wall.
“Why? Are you hurt somewhere?”
Ye-Hyeon asked, calming his surprised chest.
Kwon Joo-Ho often stares unnecessarily from afar but rarely comes close.
Kwon Joo-Ho frowned instead of answering.
“Excuse me, Kwon Joo-Ho……?”
Ye-Hyeon asked carefully, but Kwon Joo-Ho was quiet. Only the wrinkles between Kwon Joo-Ho’s forehead were getting deeper and deeper.
Why is Kwon Joo-Ho doing something he hasn’t done before?’
His gaze from afar is already burdensome, but he becomes more nervous when he is near. His palms are wet.
After a long silence, Kwon Joo-Ho finally opened his mouth. He didn’t know what Kwon Joo-Ho wanted to talk about.
Ye-Hyeon realized a bit late that he called his name, which he had heard all his life, but it was weird when Kwon Joo-Ho called.
Kwon Joo-ho was silent again after calling him. Only the distinct features were distorted more harshly.
Did he do something wrong?’
Otherwise, Kown Joo-Ho wouldn’t be staring at his face with that expression.
“Haha, why did you call me?”
Ye-Hyeon smiled awkwardly and avoided eye contact. The silence was so uncomfortable.
Rather than being alone with Kwon Joo-Ho, he thought it would be better to fight with Lee Young-Shin.
‘No, I don’t like either of them.’
After imagining it for a while, Ye-Hyeon crouched his shoulders.
“Get out of the way.”
Shin Do-Gyeom returned quickly from where he had been and pushed Ye-Hyeon’s back.
Ye-Hyeon quickly turned around and made his way.
Shin Do-Gyeom crossed between Ye-Hyeon and Kwon Joo-Ho and walked toward the bonfire.
Kwon Joo-ho also followed Shin Do-Gyeom back to his seat. He looked indifferent as usual, as if he did not make that scary impression.
……Is he dreaming?’
Ye-Hyeon stared blankly. It was a strange thing.
Yoon Seung-Jae and Baek Hae-won also returned soon. Yoon Seung-Jae immediately held out the water bottle to Ye-Hyeon.
“Hyung, try this. It’s very sweet.”
Ye-Hyeon blinked bewilderedly while sipping the sweet dew.
“It’s your first time sweeping a medium-sized dungeon. What do you think?”
“It’s more boring than I thought.”
When Baek Hae-Won asked, Yoon Seung-Jae smiled brightly and raised his feet. Yoon Seung-Jae looked happy throughout the dungeon.
To know one’s level, a comparison object was needed. They knew they were growing but didn’t know how strong they were.
Although the comparison group was mainly D-class hunters, it was obvious that they were superior, and it is useless to compare them.
“Right, don’t you think it’s fine to clear a gate now?”
Ye-Hyeon’s light words calmed the atmosphere.
There was no shortcut to Hunter’s life. They need the experience to level up.
However, perhaps because the first mistake led to a big accident, the three, except Baek Hae-Won, became passive in moving on to the next stage.
Ye-Hyeon felt like he was going to die from wasting time. Nothing is more important than experience. The sweep was also a real experience, but it was like a small game compared to the clear attack. Confronting a powerful boss, finding weaknesses, and finally getting rid of them. That was a real battle.
Ye-Hyeon has already changed the future of the three. Before regressing, the three who had grown up on their own were gathered to form a party.
“What do you think, Hunter Baek Hae-Won Hunter? Yoon Seung-Jae, don’t you ever wonder what it would be like to fight with the real boss? ” Ye-Hyeon actively appealed, hiding his impatience.
“I think it’s possible.”
Baek Hae-won offered his opinion. When asked how the medium-sized dungeon was, he seemed to have the same idea as Ye-Hyeon.
“I knew it.”
Ye-Hyeon smiled. Shin Do-Gyeom seemed willing to go, but Yoon Seung-Jae and Kwon Joo-Ho still needed to answer. Even if Yoon Seung-Jae was quiet, Kwon Joo-Ho not answering was unexpected.
Why is Kwon Joo-Ho dissatisfied?
Ye-Hyeon thought about it for a while, but he couldn’t understand Kwon Joo-Ho’s thoughts.
“Or am I holding you back?”
To stimulate Yoon Seung-Jae, Ye-Hyeon tried to act pitifully by bowing his head and biting his lip. He was dying from embarrassment but tried to act like it was nothing.
“Hyung! What are you saying?” No, it’s not. I’ll agree! I’m going to clear the gate! It’s alright, right?
Yoon Seung-Jae, greatly embarrassed, opened his eyes wide and shook Ye-Hyeon’s arm. When Yoon Seung-Jae agreed, Kwon Joo-Ho immediately nodded.
“That’s a relief. Then we’re going to clear it next time, right?” Ye-Hyeon was extremely relieved.
Baek Hae-Won and Shin Do-Gyeom seemed to notice that it was acting. Shin Do-Gyeom looked up and down at Ye-Hyeon, and Baek Hae-Won made a strange expression. Ye-Hyeon desperately pretended not to know.
Ye-Hyeon acting pitiful is useful. Learn more, and I will be prouder.
