Chapter 325.

[Leores Sword Institution — Commander’s Office]


Kim Suho was pacing back and forth in his office .

He informed Seraine of Kim Hajin’s arrival as soon as he heard the news from Chae Nayun . He was still worried, however, about Seraine’s declaration that she would test Kim Hajin’s skills .

“…Why are you so worried? Kim Hajin knows how to take care of himself,” Aileen said . She was slouching in a chair in the corner of the office and yawning .

Kim Suho awkwardly scratched the back of his neck and sat in a chair .

“Will he be okay?”

“How should I know? But, as we all know, he’s not a kid . ”

Mnnn~ This time, Aileen stretched .

“By the way, I found more people . ”

“What? Really?”

Kim Suho widened his eyes .

With a smirk, Aileen answered, “Yup, 3 more . Rachel, Yoo Yeonha, Yi Jiyoon . ”

“Wow!” Kim Suho exclaimed in surprise .

But then he remembered ‘her’ and his heart sank .

Yun Seung-Ah .

He knew that she had also been dragged into this world .

Just where was she now?

“The three of them are running a business together in a local city . ”

“…A business?”

“Yeah . ”

Kim Suho tilted his head in confusion, and Aileen handed him a crumpled piece of paper . It was a document outlining Yoo Yeonha, Rachel, and Yi Jiyoon’s current status .

Kim Suho began reading the document in silence .

…As Aileen had said, Yoo Yeonha was indeed running a business in this world .

She was the daughter of a merchant . Her family had been running local businesses for generations . Rachel was Yoo Yeonha’s maid, and Yi Jiyoon was a local aristocrat .

“Looks like they’ve joined hands . Apparently they’re making tons of money . ”

“…It’s hardly surprising . Yoo Yeonha is the kind of person to thrive anywhere . ”

She'd even survive being dumped on an uninhabited island . Kim Suho put the document down with a smile .

Yoo Yeonha had settled in ‘Lecor’, a provincial metropolis .

‘I should pay her a visit as soon as I finish taking care of the current matter regarding Kim Hajin…’ Kim Suho thought .

It was then .

—Emergency! Emergency! It’s a Monster Pathway!

The siren wailed through the speakers in the office .

Koong, Koong—!

Kim Suho immediately rose from his seat and ran out of the office .

“Ehew… . ”

Aileen sighed, then stretched and yawned once more before chasing Kim Suho .

[The basement of Seraine’s mansion]

“…”


Seraine couldn’t believe her eyes, even though she was standing in the middle of everything .

Kwaaaaaa—!

The gigantic hole on the surface of the ground . The flood of monsters traveling through the hole .

But neither was more unrealistic than the man who was extinguishing the monsters .

Tudududu… .

The man was aiming a strange looking machine at the monsters . On the outside, his shooting seemed unruly . Surprisingly, however, his attack knocked the monsters out one by one with stunning precision .

There was no exception .

Monsters that had been struck by the bullets died as their heads and hearts exploded . Every single bullet was more powerful than Seraine at her best .

“Wow, this is endless,” Kim Hajin muttered with a chuckle .

Was it because he hadn't shot for a while? Excitement and thrill made his heart race .

But he knew he shouldn’t waste bullets out of excitement . This was not Earth, and the supply of bullets was limited here .

And so, Kim Hajin took out the grenade he had ordered from Essential Armory . It was made using ‘Dimensional Entropy’ .

Kim Hajin upgraded this grenade with [Bomber]—the Trait he earned from the Tower of Wish—as well as his Gift [Random Consolidation System] and a streak of [Stigma] .

The grenade was only as big as a baseball .

Its impact, however, would exceed most bombs .

Roll—

Kim Hajin threw the grenade into the hole through which the monsters traveled .

Then he turned to Seraine and said, “Cover your ears . ”

Seraine flinched and covered her ears as instructed .

Chwaaaaa—!

The grenade exploded immediately .

Koong—!

The giant explosion shook the ground, and white pillars of light shot out from the hole .

They were caused by the light attribute attached to the grenade .

“…”

Silence descended after the huge explosion .

Buried in a solemn stillness, Seraine ran her fingers through her hair .

“Keuk-”

Suddenly, she felt a severe headache coming .

‘What is this? What am I seeing?’

Her head was about to explode in confusion .

“…Mm . ”

In comparison, Kim Hajin moved calmly and looked inside the hole .

Everything was completely wiped out as he expected . All the monsters had disappeared without a trace, dismantled by the light .

“This place is safe now . ” He declared proudly and picked up the Desert Eagle, which was in the shape of a machine gun . He then asked, “Excuse me, Seraine-ssi, does this place have a rooftop?”

“…Rooftop?” Still dazed, Seraine swallowed her saliva and asked back .

Kim Hajin answered, “Yes . There’s more of them outside, right? I want to go to the rooftop and shoot all of them . ”

“There… is . ”

That was good enough confirmation for Kim Hajin .

He surrounded himself in Aether .

Aether and Parkour increased his physical abilities .

“I’ll go on ahead . ”

He stepped on the walls and quickly climbed to the rooftop like a spider .

“That’s a lot . ”

He looked down at the ground below from the windy rooftop .

Monsters that had escaped out into the world were raising a ruckus on the streets of the city .

“Hmm . ”

He gave a small sigh and grabbed the machine gun .

With Thousand-Mile Eyes, he estimated the number of monsters to be roughly around 20,000 .

This meant he had to kill at least 30 monsters with a single bullet .

“…Will it work?”

Because the power of his Gift had been reduced, he didn’t think that the speed and movement of his bullets would be as accurate as before .

But then again, these were just monsters .

He mounted Desert Eagle, now in the form of a machine gun, on his shoulder .

He then aimed at multiple targets simultaneously, calculated the trajectory of bullets, and pulled the trigger without hesitation .

Dudududu… .

From the rooftop of the mansion— bullets began to rain .

[2 hours later, Leores Sword Institution]

I went down to the basement with Harin . Seraine, Kim Suho, and a number of knights were waiting for us there .

“Hello . ”

Harin greeted them . Seraine looked at Harin in silence . Only when Kim Suho signaled her, did she finally nod .

“…Yes . Nice to meet you, Lord… . ”

Seraine stopped midway through the sentence .

No one here was supposed to know that Harin was a member of the Leon clan . The Leons had been officially annihilated .

“Harin-ssi . ”

“Thanks for taking me in, Lord Seraine . ”

Harin wasn’t offended by the way she had been called . In fact, she could bow down to Seraine for saving her life .

“Yes, and… . ”

Seraine turned to me . The way she looked at me was completely different from when we first met .

She, however, turned her gaze to Kim Suho without saying a word to me .

Seraine stared at Kim Suho for a while before finally opening her mouth .

“Seems like everything you say is true, Commander . ”

Kim Suho’s expression brightened up .

His lips began to twitch . Unable to contain his joy, he put his hand over his mouth before bursting into laughter .

“Hahahaha . Didn’t I say so? So, how was my friend?”

“…Haa . ”

Seraine gave a small sigh . Then she took out a document .

“According to the statistics, the number of monsters that came out of the hole were 15912 low-intermediate ranks, 6534 intermediate-ranks, and 301 high-ranks . This was nothing short of a grand invasion . Originally, we would have suffered a serious loss in both life and property, and spent at least 3 days subjugating the enemies . However… . ”

Seraine stopped and looked at me . I knew by instinct that this was the right time for me to shrug .

“We brought everything under control in 2 hours . With the help of a mysterious weapon . ”

“A weapon? You mean a person . ”

Kim Suho quickly corrected her .

Seraine gave him a dirty look and nodded .

“Sure . With the help of a person . ”

Seraine crossed her arms . She reminded me of Yoo Yeonha, except that she was much more sloppy and inexperienced . This thought made me smile .

“…Excuse me, what are you laughing at?”

“Huh? Oh, no, it’s nothing . ”

“Ssp… anyways,” Seraine pouted and asked, “How did you do it?”

“That’s… . ”

How should I explain?

‘One bullet killed at least 30 monsters . My bullets also serve as guided missiles . As long as the altitude is high enough, I can shoot just about anything . I still have more than 3,000 bullets left . '

“Regardless of the number, if the enemies are weak, I can kill them all with a pull of a finger…”

I condensed the complicated explanation into a very short but accurate sentence .

**

…30 minutes later .

I officially reunited with Kim Suho in the office of the sword commander . Harin left to speak with Seraine, and Boss returned to Shimurin’s mansion . We had to keep our relationship hidden from others, after all .

“I got this from a quest . ”

[Summary of the Past and the Future to Come]

The first thing Kim Suho did was to hand me a book he received as a quest reward . It contained the summary of this world’s past and future .

“Can you see what’s written inside, Hajin?”

I opened the book .

But I saw nothing but blank plages .

“No, I can’t . ”

"Ah . I guess I'm really the only one who can read it,” Kim Suho muttered regrettably and skipped to the last page, “This book ends with a description about the Transnational Peace Conference, which will be held in a month and a half . ”

“Transnational Peace Conference?”

“Yeah . This is the last sentence of the book . [A grand calamity descended on the day of the Transnational Peace Conference] . ”

[A grand calamity descended on the day of the Transnational Peace Conference . ]

I stroked my chin, deep in thought .

‘I’ll have to ask the Book of Truth about the conference once my Stigma is restored . ’

“I think it’s clear that something’s going to happen at the Transnational Peace Conference,” said Kim Suho .

I nodded in agreement .

“…I’ll look into it later,” I answered and turned my gaze to Kim Suho, “More importantly, did you find the others?”

“Oh, right . We found Yoo Yeonha, Rachel, and Yi Jiyoon . ”

“Really?”

My lips curved into a smile .

I’ve been dying to meet them again— well, maybe not Yi Jiyoon, but definitely Yoo Yeonha and Rachel .

“Yeah . And they’re not far from here . ”

Kim Suho beamed .

“Yeah? What have they been up to until now?”

“Business . Yoo Yeonha already has influence over a local metropolis . ”

“Pfft . Really?”

I immediately burst into laughter .

“As expected of Yeonha, right?”

Kim Suho asked jokingly and I nodded .

“Right . ”

“Then… how about we go meet them right now?” suggested Kim Suho as he put on a coat .

I also straightened my clothes and raised myself from the chair .

“Good idea . You know the way, right?”

“Yeah, you can count on me . ”

We stood in front of the door of the office together .

Kim Suho grabbed the door knob but stopped as if he just remembered something .

“…Oh, before we leave,”

All of a sudden Kim Suho cast an affectionate look, and… pulled me by my arm .

“It’s good to see you again . ”

Before I knew it, I was in his arms . They were as big and sturdy as I remembered them .

“…What? O-Oh… . ”

“So good . ”

“Huh? Um… sure . It’s good to see you, too . ”

Confined(?) in Kim Suho’s arms, I patted Kim Suho on the back .

Tak, tak, tak .

Three times . It was to signal him to let me go .

It appeared that Kim Suho had mistaken my intention, however . He began squeezing me even harder… .

“…sniff, sniff . ”

As uncomfortable and awkward as it was, I couldn’t help but think that he smelled good .

This was probably a main character trait as well .

Anyways, thanks to his fragrance, the hug wasn’t too bad .

Thinking so— I waited for Kim Suho to release me .
