Chapter 293: 293
Junhyuk had deployed the iron soldier too late to check out the novices' powers . Suddenly, his phone rang gain . When he looked at the number, he saw it was Elise and picked up . "The iron soldier has been deployed . " "I have a more serious problem . " "What problem?" "There are more dimensional tears than there are iron soldiers deployed in every country . To be more accurate, there are two more dimensional tears in every country . " "Are you saying the novices are their new targets?" "You expected that, and things turned out just like you said . " Every country had gathered novices and trained them . Although, in South Korea, Doyeol was the one doing that job . The dimensional tears appeared at the locations of those novices, which meant that management was trying to kill them . "Don't send iron soldiers to where the novices are gathered . They will deal with the monsters anyway . " "What if the monsters' strengths are equal to the novices'?" "If that's the case, there is nothing the iron soldier can do now . " "Right . I'll consider you advice . " Junhyuk knew that the weeding out had started in full swing . This was a worldwide event, and it was possible that some novices would evolve into experts . Junhyuk hung up the phone and pondered everything . There were still so few novices . If they were to count up all of the novices currently, there wouldn't even be three hundred . The number of people that would evolve from this, if any, wouldn't be high . He was thinking about things when the iron soldier feed focused on a large factory building . It's roof had been torn off . "Approach slowly . " The iron soldier looked down into the building through the roofless opening . When Junhyuk looked down at what was below the iron soldier, he scowled . "A golem?" The large golem was at least a C-ranked monster . Even novices with attack-focused powers, they were no match . The novices would have a hard time finding its core . Still scowling, Junhyuk said, "They will all die . " "What do we do?" He sighed . The iron soldier would also have issues reaching the golem's core . Then, the attacks started . A novice extended his hand toward golem, creating an explosion . The golem simply walked through while another novice extended his hand . The golem stopped all of a sudden . "Focus fire!" Junhyuk ordered right away . "Yes, sir!" While the golem was paralyzed, the iron soldier let loose a ferocious barrage on it . The golem's upper body cracked, and it ran forward . After it regained its movements, the golem stepped on the novice, killing him . Then, it swung its arm . A man created an ice spear and threw it at the monster, but it didn't damage it at all . A woman stepped in front of the golem and extended her hand while the golem punched at her . Her hand enlarged, and she blocked the golem's fist . Boom! The shock from the block sent the woman rolling on the ground . Meanwhile, the golem attacked the others . "Prioritize rescuing those people rather than destroying the golem!" Junhyuk said, still scowling . "Yes, sir!" The iron soldier fired at the golem's head, flew down, snatched the woman and then flew back up . The two men left on the ground shouted after it . "Save us!" "Save me!" The broken pieces of the golem started regenerating, and the iron soldier fired at its chest, but it was unable to bring the golem down . The iron soldier could only buy more time . The iron soldier was able to hug the man, but was unable to grab the high school student . The golem swung its giant fist at the student first and smashed right through him . Unmoved by what he was seeing, Junhyuk asked, "Are we safe?" "Two people have died . " "How many do you think have died due to monster appearances? Relocate those that have been rescued and go back and deal with the giant golem . " Brita asked carefully, "Can it deal with the golem?" "An incendiary bomb will deal take the golem down . " The iron soldier had to find the golem's core to be able to destroy it . After placing the two people on a roof far away from the scene, it flew back toward the golem . The golem hadn't attacked the surroundings . Instead, it had followed them, and it was on top of an adjacent building, readying itself . The shattered parts of its body had already recovered . When the iron soldier flew over it, the golem kicked the roof and jumped . Junhyuk hadn't expected to the golem to have a jumping power like that . The iron soldier shot at the golem, but the golem ignored the attacks, focusing instead on the people that had been left on the top of the other building . The two quickly retreated, but when the golem landed on the roof, it crushed it . Junhyuk frowned . It seemed like the golem had been designed to kill novices . The golem was only attacking them . With the roof destroyed, the building started to tilt, and the two novices started rolling toward the edge of the building . As Junhyuk watched, he said, "Attack the golem's chest!" The iron soldier fired the incendiary bombs from its shoulder . They were small, but they were highly destructive . When the bombs hit the golem's chest, they exploded . Boom! The explosion was massive, and the flames raged from within it . Cracks appeared everywhere on the golem, but its core was still safe, and it did not fall down . Scowling, Junhyuk said, "The iron soldier has a weapon that use the energy of its core . Can you use it?" "Wait a moment . " The screen displayed the weapons' categories, and Brita found the one . She asked, "Shall I use it?" "Target the golem's stomach . " Brita gave the commands, and the iron soldier extended its hand toward the golem's stomach . The incendiary bombs had hit it and left a hole, so the iron soldier took advantage of that and released the bright blue beam from its hand toward it . The golem jumped and punched the ground, killing the man that had survived up to now . Then, the golem's core was shattered, and shrapnel made of its destroyed body parts flew everywhere . The iron soldier's hand had been destroyed from the shock of the attack, and Junhyuk frowned while assessing the situation . Luckily, he saw that the woman, Eunkyung Kim, was still alive . "Take that woman to a nearby hospital . " "Sure . " The iron soldier took the woman and flew away, and Junhyuk took a moment to think about her . People with defensive powers usually had higher rates of survival . Attack and magic powers could be used against heroes, but heroes could also easily kill those foes . However, defensive powers were different . Junhyuk walked out of the building and got in a car . While heading toward Incheon, he called Brita . "Use the iron soldier to take her to the hospital . " "Sure . " He drove toward the hospital to where the iron soldier was headed . Driving toward the closest emergency hospital to the fight, he inhaled deeply . "She has high survivability . I have to see her . " He drove to St . Mary's Hospital at the Catholic University of Incheon and, as he parked his car, he saw many people moving around . They were all looking at the iron soldier in front of the ER . Junhyuk hadn't sent it back yet, so he teleported to the roof of the hospital and called Brita . "Send the iron soldier to the roof . I'll deal with it . " When the iron soldier arrived on the roof, he walked up to it and stashed it in his Spatial Bag . Then, he teleported back to the parking lot . Appearing inside his car, he casually opened the door and walked toward the ER . Junhyuk had driven really fast, so the reporters weren't there yet . He walked over to Eunkyung, who was lying on a gurney, waiting for a room . She had been hit by the shrapnel, and her shoulder was shattered . However, if she were to be called to the Dimensional Battlefield, that injury would heal . Eunkyung looked at him and asked, "Who are you?" "I'm the owner of the iron soldier that rescued you . " "What?! Doesn't it belong to Guardians?" "No . " He pulled out a pen and paper and wrote Max's contact . "Doyeol can't help you now . If you need help at any time, just give me a call . However, I hope you will memorize this number and burn the paper . " Eunkyung memorized the number . She was surprised that the iron soldier was privately owned, but she was certain that he would help her . Doyeol had failed to protect her, so she wanted to memorize the number . "But Doyeol made me an offer I can't refuse," she said . "The $1 million annual salary?" "Yes . " "I'll pay you $2 million a year . Don't get tied up because of money . I can give you money . But if you die, everything will be meaningless . " Junhyuk saw people coming, signaled with his hand to warn security and left . He was getting away, and that's when she saw the reporters swarming in . The iron soldier had brought her there, and the reporters wanted to know why . A doctor arrived and moved the gurney . "Where are you taking me?" "To a ward . Let's move . " She lay on the bed, relieved that she had escaped the reporters and closed her eyes . When she opened them again, she was inside a VIP room . The reporters couldn't get in there . As she lay there, the door opened, and Doyeol walked in . He straightened his clothes and walked over to her . "Are you OK?" "I'm fine . " "Are you the only survivor?" "Yes . " Doyeol sighed and said, "OK . Get some rest . I'll be back later . " "OK . " When Doyeol walked out, he joined Jeffrey and said, "That monster showed up like it knew where the novices were . " "And it was a higher-ranked monster . " "Really!?" They had thought that the novices would be able to kill monsters, but the novices had been massacred . If the iron soldier had not saved one, they would have all died . "Sigh! I lost some valuable people . " Novices had powers that went beyond the laws of physics . A novice's power could only be stopped by a novice's defensive power, and without anyone knowing, he had been collecting novices to use them . Now, he had lost most of them . "Keep an eye on this place's defenses . " "I will . " Jeffrey had the authority to delegate Doyeol's orders . He made a call while following Doyeol out, gave out a few orders and continued walking . Before walking Doyeol out, he looked back . She had survived the monster attack in the only way she could . Jeffrey didn't know the details, but the important thing was that she had survived . He hadn't been interested in the others anyway . Instead, he thought of recruiting her .
