Kill the Hero - chapter 44
After Oh Se-chan turned off his radio he handed it to a worker beside him who looked at him and said,
“Is this really okay? If Kim Woo-jin really kills Jin-ah…”
Oh Se-chan looked at his subordinate with a cold expression on his face.
“If he does, then Woo-jin will become our enemy. What I want is a player capable of ending the game. Plus Jin-ah is not so easily killed”
“Isn’t it bad to rush so much though?”
‘If Park Yong-wan comes back from the dungeon alive, there will be a war.’
Oh Se-chan stopped talking as he contemplated deeply.
‘If the information is correct, then the Master Swordsman will make a move soon.’
The snowball that Kim Woo-jin created steadily rolled down the mountain and became larger.
‘In fact, the war between the Phoenix Guild and the Skull Guild already showed signs of bursting out.’
This situation could no longer be considered a snowball, it had developed to become an avalanche.
‘No matter how amazing Kim Woo-jin is, he will always be limited by his level and halo.’
The avalanche wasn’t the ideal situation, but it was still good.
‘Because this is what makes the game interesting.’
After all, to survive in this world, you need more than just your skills. And that’s what Oh Se-chan was trying to show Kim Woo-jin. But now he was wondering if it was worth it to invest in Kim Woo-jin.
“Where’s the Golden Dragon Gastric Juices?”
“It just arrived in Busan and it’s currently on its way to Seoul.’
It was then that a subordinate pulled out a phone marked with black tape. The black tape was an indicator that it could only be used in emergency situations. When Oh Se-chan saw it, his expression froze.
The subordinate immediately handed the phone over to Oh Se-chan.
“What? You found a 2 Floor A+ rank dungeon?!”
[Kill 1111 Kobolds to advance to the next floor.]
As soon as they entered the dungeon, a notification with the advancement conditions, appeared before them
“1111 Kobolds, you’re going to have to work hard to catch all of them.”
Lee Jin-ah mumbled under his breath.
As he mumbled, Lee Jin-ah pulled a chocolate bar from his inventory.
“Even if you catch 100 a day, that will still take 11 days, so it would be better to conserve on food, otherwise you’ll have to scavenge. Remember this advice.”
Of course, it wasn’t really advice.
At least someone giving serious advice wouldn’t do so while eating a chocolate bar bite by bite.
Of course Kim Woo-jin didn’t care about any of that, he didn’t even bat an eyelid as he saw the scene beside him. He had prepared for the hunt even before he came in as he knew that the targets would be Kobolds this time.
‘Mountainous Terrain huh.’
Woo-jin inspected his surroundings and looked for any tracks.
‘With such a large target, that means that there should be a large number of Kobolds. Kobolds usually lived in hordes that respected and protected their territory, so they rarely invaded each other. I smell a bit of blood, maybe there was just a hunt.’
He ran a simulation in his head.
‘Two days should be enough.’
Woo-jin turned to look at Lee Jin-ah and they made eye contact as Lee Jin-ah said,
“Oh, if you look at me like that you will scare me. I have a weak heart after all.”
As he said that, Lee Jin-ah shook his head, helplessly.
“Maybe if you kneel on the ground and bow three times, I will offer my services and help you.”
At this moment, Kim Woo-jin ran another simulation in his head.
‘Well he has the Blessing of River Styx after all, it should be fine if I’m a little rough.’
After he had that thought, Kim Woo-jin started planning his hunt.
His first prey was an unlucky Kobold Scout who was walking alone.
While the attention of the kobold had been grabbed by the scent drifting from a cloth on the floor, Kim Woo-jin’s arm snaked around it’s neck.
The Kobold was quickly suffocated.
Lee Jin-ah who was watching from a distance appeared and began clapping.
“It was a bit weird when you were laying on the floor and sneaking around like a lizard, but your skills are pretty good.”
He then lifted three fingers.
“I give you three points.”
Of course, it was a bad review.
“What? Do you think you deserved 10 out of 10?”
In the first place, this wasn’t a test that required something like a score. Above all, Woo-jin had yet to show any of his true skills in the first place.
Kim Woo-jin immediately summoned a skeleton using the Kobold corpse as the sacrifice. The skin and flesh on the body melted and the bones slowly began to wake up.
Suddenly two flames began to burn in the eye sockets of the skeleton.
Lee Jin-ah couldn’t help but be amazed at the sight he witnessed.
[Black Bones has been activated.]
The bones of the summoned Skeleton Soldier were slowly dyed black.
Lee Jin-ah made another sound of surprise as he fearlessly approached the skeleton to inspect it, touching it here and there.
“Cute! I’ll give you 5 points because of how cute this thing is!”
At this moment, the skeleton turned its head and bit down on Lee Jin-ah’s hand.
Lee Jin-ah tried to pull his hand away from its mouth, the sound making Kim Woo-jin turn his head to them.
“Hey, that’s dirty! Why would you put such a dirty thing in your mouth?!”
The Skeleton Soldier let go of Lee Jin-ah’s hand and turned to look at Kim Woo-jin.
Coming to stand in front of it, Kim Woo-jin handed a sword from his inventory to the skeleton. It was the Japanese sword once owned by Matsumoto.
The Skeleton Soldier looked at the sword and Lee Jin-ah couldn’t help but laugh at the scene.
“Now I understand why you can complete the dungeon clear alone.There’s nothing that you can’t do if you have such a cute guy.”
Lee Jin-ah, who was interested in the Skeleton Soldier, started clapping.
“Now shall we see how this cute kid fights?”
Kim Woo-jin once again ignored him once again. It wasn’t necessary to answer since he summoned it to show it off in the first place.
‘I’ll be very happy to show you.’
