Chapter 1 - Realizing a Past Life and Getting Stronger - Part 1



"I don't have any settlement money to take with you, so go back."


"Yeah?"


I couldn't believe it. I risked my life to attack the dungeon, so why should I be treated like this?


The D-class hunter, who was in charge of the party at my question, opened his mouth with an expression of barely putting up with disgust, as if he was looking at pathetic garbage.


"You were only getting hit with a knife and bleeding profusely, crying for your life."


"Ok. What did Hyeonjun Kang do while we attacked the dungeon?"


The assistant hunter, who seemed to be the party leader's girlfriend, agreed. while shedding an eerie laugh.


"Ha, but… … This… … It's illegal!"


"So what are you going to do? To stab the Hunter Association? My brother is an executive there. Please don't talk about F-class hunters."


I couldn't answer. He knew well that F-class hunters were treated like garbage in this crazy world of dungeons and raids.


There is no one to listen to my voice. It's dirty, but that's the reality.


"You won't get paid for the medicines you used to treat your wounds, so go… … ."


"Thank you… … ."


I thought that each person had a great talent, one by one. I have a talent too, but I just haven't realized it yet... … . That's how I comforted myself.


One day, the potential within me will be awakened... … . I thought so. However, the hope I had today was dim.


"Let's have a drink."


I drank alcohol at the convenience store along with pouring out my self-talk. That too a lot. Passers-by were biting their tongues.


There was no other way to manage this anger than to drink alcohol. After drinking two bottles of soju, he got up from his chair.


"Hunter. You seem to have a lot of previous lives."


On the way back to the shabby studio, I was caught by a man. He became interested in the word that he had many previous lives and stopped walking.


"A past life? What does that mean?"


"Literally. Hunter has a lot of previous lives. They are not ordinary past lives either. Everyone had the best name... … ."


"Let's stop."


Half-words came out of the unpleasant feeling.


"If you can't believe it, just go. After all, my role ended here."


The man shook his head and disappeared. I didn't catch it. He just stumbled into his drunkenness and headed home.


-You have realized the existence of a previous life. 990,000 past lives begin to watch you.


Ignoring the unfamiliar voice of a single word floating in my ears, I just hasten my steps. Without even knowing it, the talent I was looking for had awakened without me even knowing it.

Two men and women were sitting in a quiet cafe. The woman was smiling, but there was a chill in that smile.


"Hyejin-ah, don't you have a dungeon attack schedule today?"


Hyun-jun, a man with an anxious expression, asked. The atmosphere was unfamiliar, but he tried to ignore it. Every time an ominous thought raised his head, he shook his head.


"There is no guild schedule today."


Hyejin replied. Unlike Hyun-jun, an incompetent F-class combat hunter, she also had a guild to which she belonged.


It wasn't a top-notch guild, but it was good to see him in a different position from Hyunjun.


"like that. It's so good to see your face after a long time. In the meantime, Hyejin has been so busy that we haven't had time to meet."


"Better than no work."


"That's right."


Hyunjun answered with a weak voice and bowed his head. Because her cold words sounded like an irony of her incompetence. My heart ached.


"Hyunjun. Did you know that today is one year since we met?"


Hyejin's voice was as cold as ice. knew it There was nothing I could do to prepare. He may have pretended not to know because he wanted to turn away.


"Ah… … Sorry… … I prepared... … ."


Hyunjoon bit his lip slightly. I wanted to do something, but I didn't have the money.


F-class combat hunters were no different from ordinary people. In some cases, the income may be extremely low compared to the general population.


"OK. We are going to break up now."


"What?"


"I look like a man."


It felt as if I had been hit hard in the back of the head. Hyunjun couldn't open his mouth easily. Hyejin let out a short sigh and then opened her mouth again.


"I'm sorry, but I don't want to suffer any more."


"Ha, but… … ."


"It sounds selfish, but listen. It's different than a year ago. At that time, I was also an F, but now I am a C. Besides, I'm a secondary hunter. called semi-nobles. How long can we live like this? Now you have to face reality."


The woman I had loved for a year was not here. There was only one 'other' who had adapted to the cold world. Sadness was gone and anger rose.


"Who is it? That bastard."


His voice trembled. I wanted to deny reality.


"Are you going to kill me? give up This is our guild A-class hunter. will you die in one second? Do you know the rules of self-defense in the Hunter world? When you die, you have to lose."


Hyejin drank all the remaining iced tea. Hyun-jun's stomach was boiling, but Hye-jin's expression was refreshed after everything was sorted out. Her appearance complicates Hyeon-joo's feelings.


"Kang Hyun-jun, am I going to Inje?"


I had no intention of getting up. Instead, he turned his head to look at her back.


Hyejin got into the passenger seat of the foreign car parked in front of the cafe. Two men and women were seen smiling through the open window. Hyunjun clenched his teeth.


"Hard."


What should I do if I have no power and no money? There was nothing Hyunjun could do right now. Nervously, he pulled out his smartphone and called his only friend, Seok-gyu.


-F-class dungeon is full.


Seok-gyu, who answered the phone, said at once. He was an employee of the Dungeon Administration. So, whenever Hyun-jun called him, he would ask him to schedule an F-class dungeon. But today was different.


"Is there a party looking for porters?"


Hyunjun asked. The porter does not participate in the battle and only takes charge of routing and transporting the Magic Stone. However, the party that was looking for a porter usually attacked a high-grade dungeon, so the risk was high.


So Hyun-jun had never been a porter. But starting today, I decided to change my mind.


It was a day when I felt deeply that I needed money to live in the world.


- A porter? what are you doing?


"Because I need money."


-I'm saving 1 porter from a C-class dungeon attack party... … . They're not very good kids. are you okay?


Suk-kyu's voice was filled with concern. Still, I thought that the only people who cared for me were my friends.


"You just need to deposit it properly."


-Then I'll connect you first. Come out to the dungeon management office tomorrow.


"Thank you."


- You and I have known each other for several years, can you not do this? Go and buy some rice. Because the pay seems to be good enough.


"okay."


The call with Seok-gyu ended. Hyun-jun sighed and stared at the empty seat where Hye-jin had been sitting a while ago.


I loved you so much. It would be a lie if I said no regrets, but I had no intention of clinging to it.


"Let's go home."


He muttered to himself and went back to his room. was not empty-handed. He was holding a plastic bag full of beer and soju that he bought at a convenience store.


He drank and fell asleep that day until he passed out.


* * *


The place I opened my eyes was in an unfamiliar hallway. At the end of the hallway was an ordinary iron gate. It was a dream I had sometimes. I always woke up standing in front of the door, but today I felt different.


'What is beyond that door?'


I don't know why, but it's a problem I haven't considered until now. Hyunjun swallowed dry saliva. I wondered. A sudden spark of curiosity took over his whole body and stimulated his brain.


'I want to open that door!'


Hyeon-jun was drawn to something unknown, like a person under hypnosis, and walked towards the iron gate.


When I finally woke up, there was an iron gate in front of me. If it was any other time, I would have ignored it and went back. But today was different.


I was drawn to something strong, not my usual fear, and grabbed the handle and vigorously opened the door.


And at that moment, the dark 'room' sucked up Hyun-jun like a vacuum cleaner. When he woke up, the door had been closed and the darkness had vanished by a swarm of lights from the ceiling.


"Wow, what… … ."


It was confusing. He instinctively rolled his eyes to grasp the situation. And I found a man sitting in the middle of a large, empty stone chamber.


"welcome. Kang Hyun-jun."


Did you feel Hyunjun's gaze? The man said in a calm voice and raised his head. There were complex emotions in the straight gaze.


"My name is Carthage, the righteous shield that protects the northern part of the empire. And… … ."


Carthage raised the shield and spear lying on the floor.


"Hyeonjun Kang, this is your previous life. From now on, I will make you stronger."


My first encounter with my previous life happened suddenly.
