Chapter 30

Yoo Jonghyuk was looking at everyone except for Lee Hyunsung . The three remaining people were standing together and I couldn't figure out exactly who Yoo Jonghyuk was looking at .

「…How is this possible? 」

Who was he looking at? I wanted to ask but I was afraid that my skill would be exposed . Yoo Jonghyuk still didn't know that I knew his thoughts . However, I guessed that he might've seen the information of Jung Heewon . Jung Heewon saw Yoo Jonghyuk's gaze and confronted him . "What are you looking at?"

「······ . 」

Good job, Jung Heewon .

「 Kill… 」

"Yoo Jonghyuk . "

I quickly opened my mouth, "I was wondering about one thing . " He turned to look at me . His eyes were questioning . "Why are you leaving Gong Pildu alone?"

"If you are a prophet, you should know . "

"I don't know everything . "

To be exact, I didn't remember everything .

[The character 'Yoo Jonghyuk' has used the 'Lie Detection' skill . ]

[The character Yoo Jonghyuk has confirmed that your words are true . ]

He was thorough .

"…Indeed, I see . A prophet whose level of 'future sight' is low . "

Think what you want . Yoo Jonghyuk continued speaking, "I need Gong Pildu alive . "

"Is it because of a future scenario?"

Yoo Jonghyuk didn't answer . It was like he was trying to gauge the information I knew .

"I know that you need Gong Pildu for future scenarios . But you only need Gong Pildu . You don't need the entire group that follows him . "

「······ . 」

"Isn't it your style to remove what you don't need? Why are you just leaving them?"

「…How annoying . 」


"I have a lot to do . " Yoo Jonghyuk stared at me quietly and said, "You will never understand . "

"Wait! That isn't the problem . If you don't move now, most of the humans in Chungmuro will…!"

Yoo Jonghyuk's eyes were cold . "It doesn't matter . "

I wasn't a humanist . I didn't believe that everyone in this world was worth keeping alive . The thing that was making me angry right now was Yoo Jonghyuk .

"Yoo Jonghyuk . Can I hit you?"

"If you have confidence . "

I angrily formed a fist as I heard a message .

[The character Yoo Jonghyuk has used 'Strong Self-Defense Lv . 5' . ]

I dropped my fist . Cowardly bastard .

"Are you finished?" Yoo Jonghyuk asked .


"Let's go . "

Lee Jihye flinched at Yoo Jonghyuk's call . Lee Jihye, who belated following Yoo Jonghyuk, looked at me with confused eyes .

[The constellation 'Bald General of Justice' is impressed by your chivalrous spirit . ]

[100 coins have been sponsored . ]

Of course, it was completely misleading .

* * *

[There are 1 hour and 30 minutes before the third scenario is activated . ]

There wasn't much time left and my mind was complicated .

[The constellation 'Bald General of Justice' is angry that people's lives must be risked . ]

[The constellation 'Bald General of Justice' wants an uprising . ]

Samyeongdang's message rang loudly in my head but he didn't think of a good way to resolve it . The third scenario lasted exactly one week . Maybe Yoo Jonghyuk was planning to gain some other advantage during the third scenario . Of course, I couldn't let it go . I couldn't let it go…

[The constellation 'Prisoner of the Golden Headband' is wondering what you are thinking . ]

"That jerk Yoo Jonghyuk . "

[The constellation 'Prisoner of the Golden Headband' is satisfied . ]

[100 coins have been sponsored . ]

In fact, the problem in front of me wasn't Yoo Jonghyuk but Gong Pildu . In order to break through the third scenario, Gong Pildu's help was absolutely necessary . If I couldn't get his help…

Suddenly, Jung Heewon looked up and smiled, "Who is it?"


"You know, that person . The one you were talking to Yoo Jonghyuk about . "

I immediately explained about Gong Pildu . Jung Heewon was unconscious so she hadn't been able to see Gong Pildu . I didn't mean to change the subject . Jung Heewon immediately reacted . "…What are these scum? Taking the public facilities and making people pay to use them?"

"Those scum are upstairs . "

"I'll go and throw them out . " Jung Heewon picked up the ground rat blade . That reminded me, I should change their weapons . There was a lot to be done .

"Your actions are absurd . "

"We can win if we join forces . Don't you remember Gumho Station?" Jung Heewon's expression was confident . It was natural . Jung Heewon had the Judgment Time skill as a trump card . She had good senses and was quick to adapt, so she would've already figured out her attribute and skills .

"Don't dawdle! Let's go and kill them!"

As long as her opponents were 'wicked', her Judgment Time boasted the highest power .

[The character 'Jung Heewon' has activated the exclusive skill 'Judgment Time . ']

[The constellations of the Absolute Good system are silent at Jung Heewon's request . ]

[The skill has been cancelled . ]

Jung Heewon's face filled with confusion . "No, this…what? Is it broken?" Jung Heewon tried to activate the skill again . However, the skill wasn't triggered . "No…why isn't it activating? Aren't they obviously wicked?"

I laughed at Jung Heewon's question . "That is what we humans think . "

"…What are you talking about?"

"The constellations might be different . There is no guarantee that the good and evil they know is like what we know . "


"Justice is always decided by the majority . "

Right now, the majority of constellations have decided that they are 'good . ' Humans no longer had the right to decide on justice . Humans were just the puppets of their sponsors .


I looked at the party members . Everyone didn't say anything but they thought in a similar way to Jung Heewon . Lee Hyunsung wiped the iron shield that was scratched by the magic bullets, while Yoo Sangah and Lee Gilyoung sat next to each other on the ground, looking at cockroaches .

This sense of despair, I could understand . They thought they understood after getting rid of the gang at Gumho Station . However, there was an incomparable monster just three stations away . It was time to start the torture known as hope .

"That doesn't mean there is no way . "


"It might be difficult but there is a way to defeat them . "

They simultaneously looked at me . Lee Hyunsung asked, "…Do you really have a way?"

"What is it?"

I looked around and lowered my voice . "Get Gong Pildu out of the Armed Zone . "

"What is the Armed Zone?"

"His stigma . It is optimized to defend an area . "

Armed Zone . The reason why it was difficult to go against Gong Pildu was this stigma . It was a fraudulent ability that could build 'turrets' in an area . Right now, it was just Armed Zone . Once the stigma evolved in the future, it would become 'Armed Fortress' and a siege needed to be prepared to catch him . However, Gong Pildu had an obvious weakness .

"His Armed Zone will be released as soon as he leaves his designated area . His mini-turrets will also become useless . Usually, there are many restrictions on such a wide defense skill . "

At the same time, Lee Hyunsung and Jung Heewon looked at me with admiration .

"Ah…I see . "

"You figured this out after seeing it once? Is this Dokja-ssi's attribute?"

The same thing was repeated but I saw that the people had adapted to me to some extent . Yoo Sangah asked, "Then how will you make him move?"

"We have to think about that for now . "

"Ah, I hate thinking . " Jung Heewon complained .

Then everyone was silent for a while . It was Lee Hyunsung who gave his idea first . "Attack when he goes to the bathroom…"

"Didn't you see the things next to the bench?"

Gong Pildu never moved out of his Armed Zone . His bench had everything he needed . There were all the basics to eat and sleep: a sleeping bag, blanket, food, water, and even a place to piss . Of course, the tenants provided him with all of it .

"Crazy . He is a complete shut in . No, is he not moving because he is hiding something good on the land?"

"It is the biggest 'room' in Chungmuro . "


That reminds me, Jung Heewon still didn't know about the rooms . But there was no need for me to explain .

[There is 1 hour before the third scenario is activated . ]

She would son find out .

"We also need to find a room . "

The moment our party got up, the people around us flinched .

"D-D-Don't come closer!"

In particular, the man with a knife who was protecting a single person room on the No . 3 line platform showed high vigilance . However, other people rushed towards him before we could approach .

"Get out, your fucker!"

They attacked indiscriminately . As soon as the man was pushed out, the mark on the green zone changed . The owner had changed .

[Green Zone 1/1-> Green Zone 0/1] .

The people were engaging in a bloody fight over the room . Someone was stabbed in the thigh while someone had their nose broken . Jung Heewon frowned . "Shouldn't we stop that?"

"Even if we intervene, the result will be the same . In the end, somebody will die . "

"Why does someone have to die?"

"It isn't possible to avoid in this scenario . "

I had just finished speaking when Bihyung emerged in the air .

[Now now, shall we start the third day of the main scenario? New faces have arrived today so won't it be fun? Hahaha!]

Bihyung glanced my way . There were three dokkaebis in charge of the Chungmuro scenario . It seemed that Bihyung was temporarily the representative . It was a natural consequence of being the smallest of the three channels . Then the third scenario arrived in front of us .


[Main Scenario #3 – Green Zone (Day 3)]

Category: Main

Difficulty: C

Clear Conditions: Occupy the 'green zone' in the station and survive the monsters that emerge every night at midnight . This scenario will last 7 days .

Duration: 8 hours .

Compensation: 1,000 coins

Failure: ―


Lee Hyunsung's eyes widened .


[It is simple . Occupy the green zone before other people . Of course, you can take away the green zone of others . By the way, you should hurry . If you don't have a green zone after the scenario starts, you will have a terrible experience . Haha, then everyone should try it!]

People's expressions hardened as they heard Bihyung's words . In the meantime, the screams of the people continued .

"Die! Die!"

"I-I'm not doing this because I have a grudge! I must survive…"

Maybe this was what everyone realized . The struggle in front of us was no longer a story . Yoo Sangah asked in a trembling voice, "Surely we don't have to fight like these people?"

"We don't need to fight . Just find a room that can accommodate a large number of people . "

"The size of the green zones vary by type . It ranged from fitting only one person to fitting 70 people like Gong Pildu's area . "

"Of course, if there are any rooms left . "

Jung Heewon opened her mouth at my words . "Dokja-ssi is really talented at making people uneasy… then let's move right away . Maybe there are some rooms left . "

"It might be faster to split up . Divide the team . Hyunsung-ssi will move with Sangah-ssi, while Heewon-ssi should take Gilyoung . "


"I'm fine on my own . "

I didn't have to say anything else . Everyone trusted me . Lee Gilyoung spoke first, "Hyung, that…what if we can't find one?"

"If we can't find a room, then 20 minutes before the scenario starts, we will gather here again . "

"I understand . Then I'm going . "

The team scattered in an orderly fashion . Jung Heewon and Lee Gilyoung went to B2 while Yoo Sangah and Lee Hyunsung went to B3 . I watched my companions leave before turning on my smartphone . As soon as I opened Ways of Survival, a sentence immediately popped up .

「 There were no rooms left in Chungmuro . 」

This fact was written clearly . It was likely that they wouldn't be able to find any rooms . Then they could only choose one way . In order to survive, kill someone else and take their room . But could Lee Hyunsung and Jung Heewon do it? Not everyone here was 'wicked . ' There were some who exploited others, like Gong Pildu . But in fact, most of them bared their teeth in order to protect themselves .

Could Yoo Sangah and Lee Gilyoung bare their teeth at people like that? I would know the answer very soon .
