“A while ago…”
Ye-Hyeon blurred the end of his words and looked at Baek Hae-Won. There were more than one or two stabs.
“What did you talk about with Seung-Jae? The atmosphere looks unusual,” Baek Hae-Won tilted his head anxiously.
The dungeon’s environment, where plant-type monsters appear, was divided into two. It’s either dark and sticky or bright and glaring. This dungeon belonged to the latter.
The white sunlight that tickled his eyes flowed gently down Baek Hae-Won’s forehead and nose. Baek Hae-Won’s face shape was a smooth egg shape, so there was no ugly part from any angle. At heart, Ye-Hyeon thought that the front showing his colorful features was the prettiest.
Ye-Hyeon was mesmerized for a while and looked at Baek Hae-Won. He barely stopped himself from staring.
“·…It was nothing.”
Even though he knew Baek Hae-Won would be suspicious if he answered halfway, Ye-Hyeon did not continue.
‘Yoon Seung-Jae made it obvious that he liked me, but I told him to try again when he turned 20.’
Ye-Hyeon, who summarized his conversation with Yoon Seung-Jae, swallowed his saliva. He couldn’t bear to say it in any way. It was not polite for Yoon Seung-Jae, either. He didn’t want to do anything wrong to Yoon Seung-Jae.
‘He would rather be questioned about what he did on holiday.’
Ye-Hyeon swept down his left arm and cleared his throat.
Baek Hae-won burst into a fresh smile as if flowers were bursting.
Ye-Hyeon starts to feel rebellious because he keeps saying he is suspicious even if he doesn’t do anything.
“You know, Hunter Baek Hae-Won.”
Ye-Hyeon lowered his voice as if he would talk about something serious to distract Baek Hae-Won. Baek Hae-Won tilted his head as he covered his mouth and approached him pretending to look around.
Baek Hae-Won answered warmly while doubting Ye-Hyeon’s every move.
“Have you met the president of the association?”
Ye-Hyeon made an excited voice on purpose. It was a deliberation to see if the person Baek Hae-Won called “Sun-Woo Hyung” was the association’s president.
“……the president of the association?”
Baek Hae-Won raised his eyebrows as if it was unexpected for Ye-Hyeon to ask about the association’s president.
Seeing the three letters that came to mind, Ye-Hyeon almost made a sound without realizing it, but he finally endured it. He didn’t think so, but it really must have been Sun-Woo.
Ye-Hyeon rubbed his mouth with the back of his hand. He was expecting it, but after checking it for sure, I was puzzled.”Yes, I have.”
Considering that Baek Hae-Won took time, he admitted it.
Ye-Hyeon could not hide his exclamation this time.
“What do you think? Is he cool?”
Ye-Hyeon asked, his eyes twinkling.
To the hunters, Lee Sun-Woo was like a utopia. He was too far away to dare to use him as a role model, but Ye-Hyeon chose Lee Sun-Woo.
When he awakened, Ye-Hyeon vaguely dreamed that he might meet Lee Sun-Woo someday, but he had never seen him from afar. After Lee Sun-Woo retired due to injury, Ye-Hyeon entered the A-class gate as a supporter.
“He is cool. He’s friendly to everyone. He’s strong…….”
He smiled, saying things then he regained his composure.
It was a moment, but Baek Hae-Won showed a familiar appearance. It was just like Ye-Hyeon who admired Shin Do-Gyeom.
‘Will I be able to meet Lee Sun-Woo this time?’
Ye-Hyeon will stand up too.
If possible, he wanted to prevent Lee Sun-Woo’s injury. However, nothing was known about when, where, and how much Lee Sun-Woo was injured.
Moreover, after retiring, he disappeared as if he had evaporated. There were countless rumors about Lee Sun-Woo but no reliable witness.
Through Baek Hae-Won, he may be able to connect with Lee Sun-Woo.
It was when Ye-Hyeon pretended to be curious and tried to find more information.
“I see a monster 20 meters ahead! I think it’s about twenty!”
There was a loud cry from the lead.
The atmosphere of Baek Hae-Won, which had been overflowing with leisure, was instantly sharpened.
Ye-Hyeon swallowed his regret and went back to his place.
He came out when there was a rough situation, but he helped other parties more often than Ye-Hyeon.
‘The thickest stem…….’
Ye-Hyeon watched Root Bloom based on the information he heard from Shin Do-Gyeom.
The 2nd team’s long-distance dealers staggered. It felt like he had tripped in the pit.
However, blackthorn sprang up right next to the long-distance dealer.
Among the green thorns rising straight on the floor was a rare mixture of blackthorns. Blackthorns, twice as long as regular thorns, did not hit the opponent but penetrated it, so they had to be careful.
It was a matter of immediate death if he was properly pierced through the side. It was when Ye-Hyeon took a step urgently.
The garden set off a flame and burned the blackthorns. Flames fluttered and tried to catch and swallow the long-distance dealer.
The long-distance dealer curled up in a hurry to escape the flames.
It would be better than a hole in the intestines, but the long-distance dealer was distorting his face. It was obvious the burning was quite painful.
With a sigh of relief, Ye-Hyeon turned to Root Bloom again.
Although it is still a long way short, it was better after asking Shin Do-Gyeom than when he was alone.
‘This time, the roots go in the direction of three o’clock. Oh, I finally got it right.’
Curiously, as the monster’s attack was read little by little, the flow of the battle began to be seen.
Blackthorn from Root Bloom’s body rushed toward Yoon Seung-Jae.
It was a distance that could be prevented with a shield, but instead of lifting it, Yoon Seung-Jae turned to his side to avoid the attack and swung a sword to cut off the thorn.
‘Just because you’re a tanker, you didn’t need to block everything.’
Ye-Hyeon’s eyes widened.
However, he did not actively participate in the attack. Most of Yoon Seung-Jae’s attempts to counterattack were light attacks, and instead of counterattacking, there were quite a few times when he hit it accurately with a shield.
When Root Bloom tried to weigh him down, he tilted the shield sideways and let it go. At the same time, Yoon Seung-Jae remembered to look at Kwon Joo-Ho and Shin Do-Gyeom.
Did he purposely show them the gap?
Ye-Hyeon looked at Yoon Seung-Jae.
Not long ago, he was embarrassed because he couldn’t let go of the zombie Wolf’s attack, but Yoon Seung-Jae didn’t even realize how much he had grown in a short period.
Yoon Seung-Jae was one of many who became proficient in combat. Ye-Hyeon turned to Kwon Joo-Ho and Shin Do-Gyeom.
‘I was wondering why they didn’t attack properly…….’
Shin Do-Gyeom and Kwon Joo-Ho have scratched Root Bloom’s surface since earlier. He was puzzled because he didn’t know why they were attacking halfway even with good skills, but now he saw it cut off Root Bloom’s tough fiber step by step.
It was much faster to break the stem than other parties that were attacking recklessly.
‘We didn’t talk about anything until the discussion earlier.’
Ye-Hyeon frowned. They identified the characteristics of Root Bloom and changed the attack method.
Soon the thickest stem split, and the core of Root Bloom was revealed. Kwon Joo-Ho and Shin Do-Gyeom destroyed the nucleus. The attack a while ago was a joke compared to a powerful attack.
“Using your skills as much as possible is not good.”
Kwon Joo-Go and Shin Do-Gyeom controlled the strength and weakness as smoothly as flowing water. Ye-Hyeon’s lips opened slightly.
“Can I apply my skills like that?”’
Ye-Hyeon smoothed his chin with a serious look.
Until now, he thought that the amount of mana consumed varies simply depending on the degree of the wound.
Ye-Hyeon knew better than anyone else, as he did follow through the gates before regression. Class A gate was hell. If it were not for the named ranker, it was rarer for battles to end without injury.
No matter how much you take care o yourself, there were many cases where the potions ran out due to abnormal conditions. When there was a situation where there was a lack of release port due to abnormal conditions, Ye-Hyeon had no choice but to set priorities. Slows slowed down movement, so he had to pay more attention to close dealers than long-distance dealers, and weak tankers, which cut defense, had to pay more attention to them. It became more complicated when more than one state abnormality overlapped.
‘It would be nice if I could control how much treatment I’d give.’
There was no guarantee that Mana Potion would not run out. Moreover, Ye-Hyeon had to prepare for an S-class super-large dungeon, not an A-class one. Due to the lack of mana, there may be a situation in which each person could not be completely treated, and emergency measures could be taken to a level where as many people as possible could only fight immediately.
To do so, he had to be able to treat exactly the desired area and not stop treatment halfway.
I wonder if we could see Lee Sun-Woo soon.
I’ve read way too many dating sim style manga to know there’s always a hidden capture target. Could it be Lee Sunwoo??
I think at the beginning the 4 targets were mentioned and then there were two lines with question marks so is possible…
