Chapter 22 - Those Who Don't Keep - Part 3



When I woke up, the first thing I noticed was the white ceiling.


'Is it a hospital? … .'


The last memory was to make sure that there were no more enemies, and to collapse as if fainting in fear of reassurance.


'Others… … .'


I struggled to get up.


"Ugh… … ."


Although medical technology in the field of trauma has been developed with the advent of the recovery hunter, his body screamed with just a little movement to see if the wound had not fully healed yet.


"Wow… … ."


I turned my head at the drowsy voice and saw Sojin there. She was lying on the extra bed and sleeping.


"thank God… … ."


Hyunjoon was relieved. Seeing Sojin standing here in spite of his collapse, the other children in the orphanage will be well.


Still, I don't know, so I'll ask if Sojin happens.


"This time… … ."


I looked for my phone, but couldn't find it. I checked the watch. It was 2pm.


'At least a day has passed.'


I hoped it hadn't been long since I lost my mind.


With the personal information exposed to the Echo Guild, they annihilated the executives they sent, so they will never stand still.


"Woke up? Are you okay?"


Sojin slowly got up and asked. You seem to have woken up while looking for your smartphone.


"Sister, let me explain… … ."


"OK. I won't ask anything."


Sojin said. I'm glad I didn't ask anything. Because I was at a loss as to where to begin.


"I promise. Nothing will happen to my sister and children."


"okay. That is enough."


Sojin nodded with a faint smile.


At first, it was a moment of reassurance because it seemed that the most troublesome problem had been overcome. I could feel the popularity coming towards the hospital room.


'Who is it?'


Looking at the current situation, where there is no warning from the sergeant, and the status quo is revealed, it may not seem like an enemy, but the tension could not be relaxed.


'I don't have any weapons... … .'


I checked the subspace pocket, but there was nothing. I realized it late, but there was no way I could have retrieved the equipment in a situation where I lost my mind.


'Even if you don't have equipment, you can fight.'


It was a moment when Hyunjun's eyes shone eerily.


smart.


A light knock melted the frozen tension.


"Come on in."


"Excuse me."


Hyeonjun allowed the door to open and a familiar face man walked in. He was Taemin, the executive director of the Race Guild.


Hyun-jun sighed in relief at the appearance of almost the only person who could be called an ally in the current situation.


With his appearance, Hyun-jun was able to roughly solve the puzzle about what happened after he lost consciousness.


"Are you all right?"


"Yeah. Thank you for taking me to the hospital."


"Hyunjun Kang saved our guild. Rather, we are sorry that we did not arrive on time."


Taemin bowed his head slightly. There was sincerity in his voice.


"no. Fine."


When he answered with a smile, Taemin carefully raised his head as if relieved.


I want to get to the point, but Sojin was still in the hospital room. Naturally, his eyes turned to her.


"Ah! I'll buy you some drinks."


"I'll attach a bodyguard."


She is quick-witted. He hurriedly avoided the seat as he was afraid to read the atmosphere where it seemed that difficult stories would come and go.


The race guild's two executive hunters, who were waiting outside the hospital room, followed to protect her.


"You can rest assured. Most of the executive forces that our guild can mobilize right now are in and out of this hospital. I don't know how great the Echo Guild is, but I don't think they're going to launch a massive attack in broad daylight."


The Race Guild is considered the weakest among the Bronze tiers, but if most of the executive hunters they can mobilize are deployed, the Echo Guild must mobilize at least two or more hunters in order to fight.


However, if that number of hunters fight in a hospital in the center of the city, they will naturally stand out, so the Eco Guild will feel a burden unlike attacking an orphanage on the outskirts of the city.


"Tell me what happened while I was unconscious."


"First of all, So-Jin Han received a brief investigation by the police. You mentioned the raid by the Enforcement Hunters, but unfortunately there was no evidence left when the police arrived at the scene. Since we prioritized the safety of Hyeonjun Kang, Sojin Han, and the children of the orphanage, we could not leave the Hunter behind to secure the site. Sorry."


"Fine. Taemin Kim did his best."


I don't know the details, but the situation must have been urgent at the time.


It was dangerous to disperse the forces in a situation where there could be additional attacks from the Echo Guild executives. Hyunjun fully understood that part.


"Are my brothers safe?"


"Yes, we are in our guild office now."


"That's fortunate."


I was able to relax a little bit at Taemin's answer.


Although it is said to be the weakest among the Bronze tiers, the guild office also has a lot of regular guild members and irregular guild members in addition to the executive branch.


Even in the Echo Guild, you would want to avoid hitting the guild office directly. In short, it means that the younger brothers are safe for the time being.


"Let's put that issue aside… … How the heck did the Echo Guild get my information? This needs a little explanation, right?"


I was grateful for Taemin for taking care of Sojin and his younger brothers, but the information leak problem had to be addressed.


"Looks like there's a spy inside. I'm really sorry."


"Thanks to you, not only me but also my older sister and younger brothers are in danger. What are you going to do?"


"Until the situation is safe, our guild will take responsibility and protect you."


"Can you keep them safe from the eco guild's executives?"


Taemin bit his lip as he asked a sharp question.


The eco guild's executive team, which is about to be promoted to the silver tier, is a difficult enemy to deal with only the race guild's executive team.


"I will suspend all activities of the guild executive and focus on protecting Han So-jin and her younger brothers."


"Then I will believe you."


It is said that the executive branch is also suspended, so we have no choice but to believe it.


"How is the Eco Guild moving?"


They annihilated the executive hunters they sent. now can't be avoided The war had already begun, and Hyun-jun was also swept away by the wave.


"I don't know the exact details, but it seems like we are preparing for the second attack."


Of course. From the point of view of the Eco Guild, not only have they been interrupted several times, but the executives have suffered great damage, so they will not stand still.


"From now on, I will also participate in the war against the Echo Guild."


For the sake of Sojin and the safety of his younger brothers, the Eco Guild executive had to be annihilated.


Besides, it seems that they also have the items that Reapers want, so they have no choice but to participate in the war.


"Am I really participating in the war?"


"It's not free."


"of course. We will spare no effort to support you at the guild level."


"Of course you should."


As he finished speaking, he loosened the bandages slightly and inspected the wounds.


'I can't move for three days.'


With the Echo Guild's executives preparing for the second attack, they can't act properly for 3 days... … It wasn't good.


In my mind, I want to move right away, but if I overdo it with a bad physical condition, I may get hit.


'Can we win against the Eco Guild Executive?'


If you think about it coldly, it is a story that is impossible with the power of the 'now'. So what should I do? I can't help but get stronger


Fortunately, Hyun-jun had the means to quickly become stronger. That's right.


'The room of a previous life.'


The previous life's room is the room where you will meet your previous life when you fall asleep, and this is the name Hyun-jun gave himself.


In the room of the previous life, time does not pass, and because you can receive training from the strongest, you can quickly become strong.


"Are you sure you can handle the spy?"


"We will find out and 'dispose' of it by all means and methods."


"I believe."


If even internal spies cannot be cracked down, the Race Guild cannot be used with full power.


In a state where a spy is planted, it is impossible to take proper action because information is leaked.


Taemin must also be aware of how serious the situation is.


"I'm going to check it again, but it would be unreasonable to seek help from the police, right?"


If possible, I wanted to get help from the special police department, which was created to crack down on the crimes of hunters among the police.


I didn't even want to get to the Hunter's Mobile Team.


When a few special police officers armed with assault rifles and armored vehicles are deployed to the hospital, it is difficult for the Echo Guild to launch an attack.


This is because they are 'public power', unlike ordinary hunters.


Of course, the large guilds that are just starting out attack even the public authorities with humiliation, but the Eco Guild was not yet that big.


"It will be difficult. I don't know who's behind the Echo Guild, but it seems they're preventing the intervention of public authorities."


"It looks like some powerful guys are standing behind them."


It is common for powerful people to be behind powerful or promising guilds.


"Yeah. There seems to be some pretty influential person behind the police."


Taemin answered. It seems he didn't know who it was. Looking at Taemin with his head bowed, Hyunjun opened his mouth with a short sigh.


"For now, I know. I want to rest, so go and deal with the spy."


I had to sleep to enter the room of my previous life.


"My men are lying in the hospital, so don't worry and rest in peace."


"Thank you."


Taemin looked at Hyunjun and nodded his head, then came out of the hospital room. An executive hunter who was waiting outside caught up behind him.


"I found an insider spy."


"Guide me."


A cold life flowed from Taemin's eyes.


* * *


A black sedan stopped in front of a warehouse guarded by two men in black suits.


It was Taemin who got out of the car. The two executive hunters who checked his face bowed their heads.


"Are you inside?"


"Yes. He has been arrested."


"Good."


In response to the subordinate Hunter's answer, Taemin nodded with a satisfied expression and entered the warehouse.


In the center of the warehouse, littered with dusty boxes, a bloody man was tied to a chair, and a hunter with a spear was watching him.


"Wake up."


Taemin said. The hunter, who was in charge of the guard, stabbed the spy in the thigh with a spear.


"Aww!"


The Spy woke up with a scream of pain. Taemin's cold gaze reached him.


"How much did you get?"


"… … Does that matter?"


"no. It doesn't matter at all. I was just curious."


Taemin answered. He pulled out a torture tool from his small subspace pocket.


"The important thing is that the night is long and there is no one to help you."


The spy trembled at the voice full of life.
