I Became a Father - chapter 16
“For 1587 years, no, you’re about 24 years so it’s been 1611 years. Hm, hm! You’re in Platonic, do you know it?”
“Wow~ Wow~ It would be nice to be Platonic.”
(T/N: Platonic” is when you have loving emotion but entails no sexual feeling.)
Kisoo was giggling.
Anyway, that was all.
Why Sujin wasn’t here. Why did I bring Sehwa to Earth alone?
He didn’t ask about it.
There also wasn’t a need for a long explanation.
Sujin used all her immortality for the sake of the earth. An immortal without immortality is not an immortal.
Just a name only.
And in order to solve the karma, she built The Initial Dungeon by using all of her transcendence. However, Sujin did not just endure to solve karma.
Sehwa slowly opened her eyes and turned around.
She raised her head and looked up at me, smiled softly and leaned her head at me.
When I raised my hand and stroked Sehwa’s head, she made a pleasant sound. Such a lovely daughter. A daughter who was born and couldn’t stay with her mother even for a day.
I wished Sehwa would be safe.
No matter how good I was attacking The Initial Dungeon, if I had neglected the egg I would have been eliminated by Sujin, right?
“But rather than because of the story, I’m most surprised that she looks a little bit like you but still pretty. Wait, but why does she look like you?”
“Because it’s my mana that hatched Sehwa in egg state.”
The egg itself was made by Sujin, but it was me that brought it to hatch by holding it with mana. So I can say that she’s a Half-Dragon.
There is a special reason for her weight loss, which is separate from the present body. Not even a drop of blood was mixed.
For a dragon, a relationship with mana was more stronger than that.
Therefore, the relationship between me and Sehwa was more like my father and daughter.
“Oh, pretty…. .”
Kisoo, who was still treating Sehwa like soap bubbles, suddenly got surprised. Sehwa rolled up her bracken-hand and held Kisoo’s finger.
Kisoo’s face said, ‘I’m touched because I was touched.’ that phrase appeared automatically.
I know how it feels. The feeling that warmths the whole world and just makes everything disappear.
“Sehwa~ It’s Uncle Kisoo~”
After holding her hand once, he grabbed Sehwa’s hand first without hesitation.
“You, do you wash your hands?”
“… Always clean thanks to the ‘Flame of Extinction’, don’t worry.”
Auto clean function!
It looks like Sehwa’s blanket. The blanket made by twisting Sujin’s mana was resistant to any pollution. Despite rolling in the Mirage, it was maintaining its cleanness and smoothness.
“Sehwa, your dad tried to eat you when he first met you.”
Sehwa listened to Kisoo with curious eyes.
“…..Hey”, I growled.
“Let’s talk straight. I didn’t say that I would eat her.”
I made as many excuses as I could.
“But before my sister-in-law explained, you only thought to eat it, right?”
“Because I didn’t know what it was!”
“Oh, my niece. Your father didn’t even know what you were when he first saw you.”
Should I beat him?
But I couldn’t do it. Not outside the Mirage. The mana density was low because we both have the same conditions.
There was something I have learned from Jang Kanghun by providing him with true education. Up to that level, true education was possible with overwhelming mana. However, in order to compete with the top 10 hunters in Korea such as Kisoo at level 90 with the passive skill S-Rank, I must prepare for a long-term battle.
But I can’t stand the long-term battle with my body. Right now, my lower back hurts.
The promise I’ve made that I won’t fight?
Ee~i. That’s as a hunter.
I never said I wouldn’t do it with friends, did I?
That’s how I grew up!
“EX-Rank, the initial wizard…….”
“Are you envious?”
“No, I’m not envious of you at all, because I’m much better, break the D-Rank tutorial and get level 90.”
“Hey. For that reason, the guardians who broke the S-Rank tutorial from the beginning are better.”
“Sure? We both are nothing compared to them.”
“is that so? Well, it’s okay. Because there’s Sehwa.”
“She’s not my daughter, but I agree.”
It is a very rational, logical and informative dialogue between the original wizard and the wings of extinction.
[Some watchers agree with this conversation.]
Look, some watchers also agree with it.
While I was at it, I checked out of the 13 watchers who have watched us at the moment.
[Watchers who have expressed their consent to this dialogue are as follows.]
-Ruler of Extinction, Dictator, Garden World, Absolute Zero
-Volcano, Death Clown, The Nameless
A little over half. Be sure to remember the names of those who participated in the conversation but disagreed.
“I recently won the title of the nation’s top three gold medals in terms of rank, highest level, and best performance.”
Listening to it reminds me.
Pro Yoon Kisoo, the press made great headlines. It was spread on portal sites, and TV programs dealing with gossip were also noisy about it.
“Thanks to you, it would become unofficial again.”
“Yes, the Rank, because of me.”
“… your tone sounded subtle. Your Mirage level is low, so the highest level is still me.”
After shaking my head, I added.
“Even if I don’t have a rank, even if I’m not a hunter, I still can be stronger than you.”
“Don’t tell me, is my niece already stronger than me…?”, Kisoo muttered while looking at Sehwa.
“She’s still a newborn baby, so it’s far away.”
Sehwa’s ‘Breath’ is powerful but if it doesn’t hit the target, it’s useless.
“Just because, there are some ordinary people who are stronger than a hunter.”
Kisoo’s expression came into my sight.
“The average person is stronger than a hunter you say?”
A valid question that can be embraced even if not by the fanatical idiots that believed Hunter is superior to humankind. The hunter’s body is better than the average human body.
At the Early Cataclysm Upheaval, a baseball player who has not been able to build a trivial career and is on the verge of retirement suddenly hits a home run. A martial arts player who was judged to be incapable of recovering continued winning streaks and became champions.
You know what I mean? They hid the fact that they were awakening.
At that time, there was no such thing as an administration office, so the people were relying on the hunter’s voluntary reporting.
In other words, the physical abilities of the D-Rank hunter, who awakened, is the same as the top-class athlete who set a world record in international competitions. It can be considered that even a C-Rank hunter has exceeded human limits itself.
And this is with the outer standar of the common hunter with low mana density.
Looking from the point of view of an omniscient watcher, they are still cuties who have not escaped the confines of being mortal.
“There are certainly hunters who caught monsters even before awakening.”, Kisoo muttered with folded arms.
Of course there is. In the early days when the brake phenomenon was frequent, there were those who beat the monsters alone without being armed even though they were not hunters.
The public gave them the title as a ‘person with ability’.
“Sujin found all the talents and awakened them all alone.”
Even so, they, who had superhuman powers, are now mostly high-level contractors of level 80 or higher.
“There’s an irregularity.”
Even if they are capable and have that ability, they are on par with the C-Rank Hunter. What I’m saying is that it unofficially pushes back Kisoo’s “best in skill” title.
“So what’s the case with the irregularity?”
“This is a completely different story, so you can’t invade that person’s privacy with your
Because, it has nothing to do with the truth of the world, has nothing to do with the secret of my daughter’s birth, and has nothing to do with The Initial Dungeon.
“…Hey, if you’re going to do that, just don’t say it then.”
“Don’t play the triple crown drip.”
“Is it me who did something wrong?”
The moment Kisoo felt it was unfair.
Sehwa, who was eagerly looking around, shouted with both hands stretched out.
Her head is still larger than her body, so her arms are stretched diagonally.
Wow………. Hooray! How can she be so cute?
“But that’s what Sehwa says.”
Her gaze is pointing on Kisoo.
“Oh, my niece told me it was uncle’s fault. Right? Then uncle will only be satisfied with the highest level.”
He said that and looked at my eyes. He smiled and nodded at the gesture to confirm that it was his title.
Don’t worry, buddy. Neither me nor the irregularity are interested in the Mirage high-level.
You just need to climb a lot. Our Kisoo should climb as much as he wants.
“Hey, you’re pretty. Whose niece is so pretty. Huh?”
“What? Why do you intervene with our Sehwa when no one of your mana is mixed with her?”, I asked.
“Aside from you, am I the first person to meet Sehwa?”
Kisoo asked without pretending to have heard my remark.
“No. Let’s see, the association officials and the management office staff.”
“Ah, right after breaking the tutorial.”
As if it couldn’t be helped, he stopped his head.
“With the local aunty, girls’ high school students, the taxi driver, the Bonandang visitors and the manager.”
“Did you show her to all the neighborhood in one day?”
No, why are you disappointed?
“Would you want to see her original form…..?”
“I want to see!”, Kisoo answered with a violent nod.
When I take off her hat, her horns shyly show up and the blanket shows a sleek of coveted tail.
“Wow, it’s a horn? Oh, my! Your tail is cute!”
“Look at this? She also has wings?”
I showed off Sehwa’s back, flattered by the desirable response of his eyes and voice tone.
“Wow! It suits you very well… Oh, really!”
Again, I thought that the reaction of Kisoo was desirable, but suddenly I became suspicious. He shakes his hands as if there was something in front of him.
“No, even to the baby really, what are you doing? Yes, yes. It doesn’t mean much.”
He’s getting a phone call on in-ear earphones. His contractor, the Ruler of Extinction is talking to Kisoo.
“What did he say?”
“No, just. What he always says.”
Kisoo’s voice crawled. What was he always saying anyway.
Ah, I remembered.
“The quest you’re doing right now was hunting a flying boss monster, right.”
Over the course of ten years, information about the watchers was released.
A frustrated vagabond who professes, not to have an exclusive, but scatters contracts widely.
Wolcheonrang (Wolf of the Sky) is not an animal type, but a human type, and even handles all kinds of melee weapons starting with a long sword.
Volcano is a wave of fire with informal shape, and Overlook is a giant over 300m tall.
And The Ruler of Extinction is the phoenix, in charge of extinction and regeneration.
That’s right, they’re called the new boss. The new boss with a very strong self-consciousness.
The main contractors are told to dry up the seeds of the flying monster, shouting “The absolute ruler of the sky” on a fictitious day.
Dragons are basically flying creatures, so they tackle the praises of Kisoo.
“What are you going to do now, Sehwa’s here, so it’s going to be hard to drink alcohol, so should we just eat? Just tell me what you want to eat, hyung-nim.”
It’s a big shot. It was quite harsh, but I shook my head, rejecting him.
“Next time. I’ve been walking around since morning and I’m very tired.”
“Oh, really? It’s okay for you, but it’s a big deal if Sehwa is sick.”
My friend. I’m impressed by your true friendship that I think I’m going to grind my teeth.
“Sehwa~, uncle disappeared, but actually uncle here~always….”
While touched, Kisoo played peekaboo with his hands covering his face.
What are you doing?
He’s good at it.
