“They say we’re going to have two parties.”
He was going to ask about Seo Soo-Hee, but Baek Hae-Won naturally cut him off. It seemed like a topic he didn’t want to talk about.
“Shall we invite everyone?”
He was curious, but Ye-Hyeon went to call Shin Do-Gyeom and Kwon Joo-Ho without asking more.
“Then I’ll start.”
When the preparations were over, Kim Jae-Hyung left the starting area with a big smile. Kim Jae-Hyung’s party moved first, followed by Ye-Hyeon’s party at a short distance.
It’s finally starting.
Ye-Hyeon felt like he was at the starting line now. How dangerous, hard, and painful it will be this time.
Still, there was nowhere to run. Ye-Hyeon closed his fist with a firm expression and took a deep breath.
“Are you scared?””
Yoon Seung-Jae was worried about the unusual atmosphere, asked carefully.
Ye-Hyeon smirked because his worried round eyes were pretty.
“Why would he be scared when he is hiding behind?”
However, before Ye-Hyeon opened his mouth, Shin Do-Gyeom answered. Shin Do-Dyeom had an annoying smile.
Ye-Hyeon is sure he have something against him.
It was a big deal because he couldn’t guess.
“Shin Do-Gyeom, you.”
“Seung-Jae, it’s okay. I was just nervous. Do-Gyeom, stop it. The monster is coming out soon.”
They didn’t know when and where monsters would come out, but they didn’t have time to squabble. Ye-Hyeon stopped the two while looking at Baek Hae-Won.
Seo Soo-Hee following the farthest behind Kim Jae-Hyung looked around as she heard the chatter
Kim Jae-Hyung’s party must have been temporarily arranged, but it was friendly as if they had been together for years.
Perhaps their unity is better than Ye-Hyeon’s party.
Ye-Hyeon rolled his eyes in envy and bit his lips.
The group to which Kim Jae-Hyung belongs generally had a good atmosphere. In the past, he thought it was just because he had a good personality. After he joined a party, he didn’t think it was going to work just because he had a good personality.
“Stop. I can feel some presence ahead. Fifteen? No, eighteen.”
The long-range dealer who was walking in front of Seo Soo-Hee, raised his arm with a dagger.
‘I also need a detection skill but…’
The search skill made it convenient to find an ambush or monsters. A party without detection skills had to look all over the place with full alertness as they advanced, or check with wind-based magic distance skills.
Ye-Hyeon looked up at Baek Hae-Won’s profile.
Kim Jaehyung, who is qualified as a leader, a Hunter with detection skills. The monster is Grave Dog that they’ve dealt with the most. It was the best environment for Ye-Hyeon’s party, who is trying to clear for the first time.
‘Everything is going according to plan, it’s a suspicious to just call it luck.”
Ye-Hyeon tilted his head.
Dungeon Management, which identifies and matches the names of the hunters who applied for the gate, was the most important department in the association as it operated independently to be free from external pressure.
Even if Baek Hae-Won’s position within the association was so high, it was impossible to use his connections. Even if he could, Baek Hae-Won had no reason to risk the hassle for the four new hunters.
There was a suspicion that Baek Hae-Won seemed to have done something, but there was no physical evidence. Ye-Hyeon turned his eyes away, leaving his uncomfortable feeling behind.
The vast plain’s dry bushs was almost knee-high, so the floor was completely invisible.
Seo Soo-Hee created a shadow at Kim Jae-Hyung’s call. A large hand-shaped shadow rose from under Seo Soo-Hee’s feet.
Ye-Hyeon, who saw the shadow, stepped back without realizing it. Shin Do-Gyeom looked nervously at Ye-Hyeon.
The shape of the Rave Dog was revealed.
The Grave dogs’ positions were revealed in an instant. They lowered themselves close and cried violently. They were staring at the hunters as if they were about to shoot forward.
As the long range dealer said, there seemed to be about 18. Nearly 20 Grave Dog’s cries resonated with each other and spread far away.
Ye-Hyeon rubbed his forearms that had goosebumps. So far, the Grave Dogs that Ye-Hyeon’s party has dealt with has been more than enough. The power of the monster group that they encountered after a long time was also unique.
The smile completely disappeared from Yoon Seung-Jae’s face. Shin Do-Gyeom and Kwon Joo-Ho also looked at the monsters with serious faces.
Kim Jae-Hyung, who ran forward at a high speed, took a deep breath and stabbed the ground with a shield.
The earth rang in a heavy tremor.
All the Grave dogs rushed at Kim Jae-Hyung, as he manages to grab their aggro
Kim Jae-Hyung, who was trying to hit the ground one more time, quickly squeezed between the monsters and dragged them to the right.
Yoon Seung-Jae rushed out at Baek Hae-Won’s signal.
Eleven monsters chasing only Kim Jae-Hyung were caught in provocation, and the other seven looked around looking for targets to attack.
“Where are you looking? Come to me.”
He never dealt with up to seven Grave dogs, but Yoon Seung-Jae shouted with a confident look without giving up at all.
Grave dogs with lowered shoulders slowly began to circulate around Yoon Seung-Jae. It seemed to be pushing Yoon Seung-Jae in earnest. Once surrounded, it was hard to get away from the quick guys.
Grave dogs from the sweep were individuals who got lost from their pack so they did not hunt in groups. Thanks to the information given by Baek Hae-Won’s, he knew it in his head, but Yoon Seung-Jae paused for a while when he moved in a different way.
“Get out of here!”
Yoon Seung-Jae quickly stepped back at Baek Hae-won’s cry.
Grave Dog followed Yoon Seung-Jae and attacked at a high speed.
“Wait, what is this…….”
Yoon Seung-Jae was overwhelmed just by hitting seven dogs without a break.
Ye-Hyeon bit his lower lip tightly.
When dealing with monsters hunting in groups like Grave Dog, you should not spread the distance in a straight line. As Kim Jae-Hyung just did, he had to move between monsters to induce them to interfere with each other’s attack.
However, Yoon Seung-Jae was still young and inexperienced. Yoon Seung-Jae’s face gradually got more scratches.
Originally, it was necessary to wait until the tanker settled down stably, but noticing Yoon Seung-Jae was a little overwhelmed, Kwon Joo-Ho took two dogs that were about to attack Yoon Seung-Jae’s back.
Despite the two fast-paced attacks, Kwon Joo-Ho dodged it as if it were nothing. However, it did not seem appropriate to attack.
Thanks to Kwon Joo-Ho, he had a little time to catch his breath. Yoon Seung-Jae immediately took center stage and began to properly attack the Grave Dog.
Shin Do-Gyeom was unable to use his bow because he was tangled with a monster. When Yoon Seung-Jae regained stability, Shin Do-Gyeom began to deal with Grave Dog, which is confronting Yoon Seung-Jae, as if he had been waiting.
Ye-Hyeon sighed deeply. He was fighting well for a close call, but he was worried that he might get hurt.
Just as it seemed that Kwon Joo-Ho was continuing the battle stably, one of the monsters that Kwon Joo-Ho had missed rushed to Shin Do-Gyeom.
Yoon Seung-Jae hit his body and pushed out Grave Dog, who jumped high toward Shin Do-Gyeom.
The Grave Dog thrown to the ground struggled.
Shin Do-Gyeom, who quickly avoided the attack and tried to finish, but Baek Hae-Won burned it down before he could.
Shin Do-Gyeom looked back with a disapproving face, but he couldn’t say anything to Baek Hae-won smiling. He kicked his tongue and used his bow at another monster.
Although they were briefly twisted by an unfamiliar pattern, the three were not struggling with Grave Dog.
It was when the Grave Dog pack was almost completely destroyed.
Kwon Joo-Ho, was moving quickly and accurately as if dancing as the name of his skills ‘sword dance of despair’, then he suddenly stumbled. It was very rare for Kwon Joo-Ho, who always plays his role silently, to make a mistake.
Kwon Joo-ho fell down, and the three Grave Dogs that were ambushing jumped high.
Kwon Joo-Ho swung his sword in a hurry. Two were pushed away, but the other one was not able to escape.
The thick, sharp claws scratched Kwon Joo-ho. Fortunately, he was not bitten, and avoided major damage, but red blood fell down his throat.
“Oh, my God…”
Baek Hae-Won muttered nervously. It seems that it was difficult to attack because the distance from Kwon Joo-Ho was too close.
Yoon Seung-Jae slashed the neck of the grave dog he was confronting and rushed to Kwon Joo-Ho.
Seo Soo-Hee, who was not far away, reached out for Grave Dog, who was trying to rush back to Kwon Joo-Ho.
However, even before the shadow reached, Shin Do-Gyeom penetrated the two with the skill of “split light.”
Yoon Seung-Jae hit the other one with a shield and blew it away. It was when Seo Soo-Hee tried to grab a monster in the air.
The Grave Dog’s body burned quietly.
Seo Soo-Hee’s black shadow faded into the bright flame. Ye-Hyeon could see Seo Soo-hee curling up her upper body.
Ye-Hyeon alternately looked at Baek Hae-Won standing upright, and Seo Soo-Hee slouching. The two did not seem to match not only in terms of their personalities but also their idealism.
Kwon Joo-Ho be careful!
