‘I’ll have to practice when I get back. How should I practice from now?’
It was a promise that Shin Do-Gyeom half-forced him to make because he was reckless. Ye-Hyeon didn’t want to break it because it was a promise.
“Should I ask for help? While pretending like I didn’t practice by myself?”
Ye-Hyeon looked down at his left arm with a dark expression and sighed deeply. He was so worried.
‘It’s too hard.’
Ye-Hyeon never achieved anything easily in my life, but it took work to learn skills.
All the skills that Ye-Hyeon gained before regression were simple. It was “slaughter” and “collection,” and it was over just standing in front of the object and giving a demonstration. The same was true of the L-class “Inventory” skill.
How can one open the inventory well?
It was unfair to Ye-Hyeon. He thought about how to use ‘inventory’, but Ye-Hyeon never thought deeply about the skill itself.
Like other hunters, he only used some of the five senses to use his skills, so he wandered even more confused.
“I think it’s better to throw a potion of vitality than to use the ‘healing light’ during the battle.”’
Of course, throwing a potion bottle is dangerous, but it was several times better than jumping directly into the battlefield.
Ye-Hyeon sighed again while habitually opening and closing the inventory.
How nice would it be to throw “Healing Light” away like a potion?
However, it was already a miracle if he could heal 10cm away from his palm even if he tried hard.
An idea flashed in Ye-Hyeon’s head while he was complaining.
‘Huh? Wait a minute. I think it might be possible if I do this well?’
But that required an alchemist.
There’s nothing that comes out even if you ask around. Where the hell is one hiding?
Even while Ye-Hyeon was deeply troubled, Ye-Hyeon’s party played without hesitation and killed the monster. The fierce spirit remained unabated in the face of the middle boss, who looked as grotesque as an old tree struck by lightning.
Yoon Seung-Jae raised the shield, ran quickly to the middle boss and bumped into him with all his might.
The middle boss, whose base was tattered by the continuous attack, eventually couldn’t handle the accumulated damage and began to lean sideways with a loud noise.
[system] Level has been raised.
Ye-Hyeon shook his head, closing the message window.
“It’s not some kind of bamboo, but can your skills improve so much at each gate?”’
They got rid of the middle boss without a scratch. Even though they learned one extra skill, it was phenomenal growth. Ye-Hyeon couldn’t be surprised. He was just flustered. Other hunters were also peeking at the four people, perhaps feeling the same way as Ye-Hyeon.
‘I shouldn’t be left behind either.’
Ye-Hyeon made a firm commitment and rushed to the injured Hunter.
“Is there anyone who needs more treatment?”
Ye-Hyeon glanced back. Behind Ye-Hyeon’s back, Yoon Seung-Jae watched with his eyes wide open and arms folded.
Yoon Seung-Jae wasn’t the only one. The other three were also secretly paying attention to Ye-Hyeon.
‘Baek Hae-won is suspicious, and Kwon Jo-Hoo is……. What’s bothering you, Shin Do-Gyeom?’
He was embarrassed inside because the other three were becoming more persistent.
‘Don’t pay attention and just give them a point of affection.’
Ye-Hyeon pouted his lips.
The engineering department soon arrived at the boss room portal.
To open the portal to the boss room, it had to be operated by putting the palm of the hand on a crystal larger than most adult men.
Ye-Hyeon looked up at the crystal stuck in the wall. The crystal was set to yellow.
When it was activated, the crystals of all routes turned black, and when someone entered the boss room using the portal, it became transparent again.
Since there was no way to communicate with the hunters who entered each route, they usually activated the crystal and entered after a certain time.
In short, it meant that Ye-Hyeon’s engineering department was the first to reach the boss room portal.
“We’re the first?”
Everyone glanced at Ye-Hyeon’s party with a puzzled looks. They couldn’t help but know who it was, thanks to. Everyone seemed to know well that it was thanks to Ye-Hyeon’s party.
Ye-Hyeon, who knew the feeling so well, felt sorry for them. To put it into perspective, Ye-Hyeon’s party members are outside the standard, but that could not have been a consolation.
“We will enter in an hour from now!”
The hunter who acted as the leader of the party shouted.
Ye-Hyeon took out the sword again and stayed beside Kwon Joo-ho, who was grooming his own.
“Kwon Joo-Ho, when is the best time for class? You must be busy preparing for the promotion, so starting next week is better, right?”
“Anytime is fine.”
Kwon Joo-ho was indifferent. It was embarrassing to talk to him gently.
How about the day after tomorrow?
Ye-Hyeon was grumpy because he didn’t seem interested in him, but Kwon Joo-ho simply accepted it. The conversation broke off again.
‘Ha. What should I do?’
Kwon Joo-Ho did not respond to Ye-Hyeon’s flirting, even though the affection points are already like that.
‘I just need to get five more points.’
Ye-Hyeon bit his tongue. Even if he repeated that he shouldn’t be impatient, Ye-Hyeon was forced to get nervous.
‘I want to practice my new skill before I enter the next gate…….’
The point of affection rises when the target feels affection. Ye-Hyeon tried his way, but it didn’t work, so his motivation was greatly reduced.
‘……I’ll just cry out of the blue.’
Half resigned, Ye-Hyeon recalled what happened with Kwon Joo-Ho in the morning.
At an early age, there were times when he got injured, and he cried in pain, but since then, he rarely cried. He realised that not everything could be solved even if he cried.
Ye-Hyeon did not cry even when his sister collapsed. No, he wanted to cry but couldn’t because he forgot how to cry.
It’ll be okay just to have tears in your eyes.
However, even before the tears formed, his shoulders were tilted back.
Ye-Hyeon had never thought anyone would interrupt and let out a fierce voice.
“What are you doing?”
Shin Do-Gyeom made a fierce impression when he saw Ye-Hyeon’s bright red eyes.
Ye-Hyeon licked and then bit his lip.
If Yoon Seung-Jae saw Ye-Hyeon as a “Hyung he had to protect because he was weak,” Shin Do-Gyeom seemed to think he was “an idiot who uses his body carelessly.” There was plenty of possibility because of what had been done.
“I think I have something in my eye.”
When Ye-Hyeon made an excuse with a sullen expression, Shin Do-Gyeom clicked his tongue irritably.
“Hey, get out of my way.”
Obviously, he was snooping around the crystal stuck in the wall from afar until now. When he arrived, Yoon Seung-jae pushed Shin Do-Gyeom with his shoulder to see when he approached.
Shin Do-Gyeom was pushed out of nowhere, glared at the back of Yoon Seung-Jae’s head for a while, and left.
“Does your eyes hurt? Which one?”
Yoon Seung-Jae lifted Ye-Hyeon’s chin and examined it anxiously.
Ye-Hyeon just rubbed it and pointed to the burning right eye.
Yoon Seung-Jae looked carefully with a serious expression on his face. Then he blew it gently. It was a careful and ticklish touch.
“Is it okay now?”
Yoon Seung-Jae’s face was too close, and the voice dripping with affection was too unfamiliar.
Ye-Hyeon turned his head slightly because he was embarrassed and made eye contact with Shin Do-Gyeom, who he thought had gone far away.
Shin Do-Gyeom, watching disapprovingly, sneered as if he was not satisfied and turned his back on Ye-Hyeon.
[system] ‘ Target 3: Shin Do-Gyeom”s affection has increased by 1 point.
‘Does he like that expression?’
Ye-Hyeon would believe he hated him if it weren’t for the system message. Ye-Hyeon stared at Shin Do-gyeom’s back with energy.
Yoon Seung-Jae tilted his upper body and made eye contact with Ye-Hyeon. He then smiled brightly.
Yoon Seung-Jae laughed and murmured. It wasn’t empty talk to get something. It was a pure compliment without any expectations.
Listening to Yoon Seung-Jae’s recognition of seeing me as an object of love, Ye-Hyeon felt like his stomach was tickled.
” thank you.”
Ye-Hyeon lost his composure for a moment and stammered. The scruff of his neck was burning.
Yoon Seung-Jae burst into laughter with a helpless face.
[system] ‘Target 4: Yoon Seung-Jae’s affection level increased by 1 point.
[system] Your affection point has increased by 5 points.
Recently, intimacy and affection have risen slowly, but perhaps because of the awareness that they like him, their affection has risen well again.
“There is only you, Yoon Seung-Jae.”
But Ye-Hyeon hopes the level of affection goes up slowly.
He was worried he might have an accident before Yoon Seung-Jae turned 20.
“Huh? Of course.”
Yoon Seung-Jae, who knew nothing, hugged Ye-Hyeon with a big smile.
