Chapter 23 - Those Who Don't Keep - Part 4

Hyeonjun fell asleep shortly after Taemin left the hospital room.

When I opened my eyes again, it was a dream space I was used to. On the door in front of him was written 'Shadow of the Behind'.

'the best.'

A smile spreads across your lips He was in need of stealth and assassination skills.

If you are an assassin who has the nickname of "shadow behind the scenes," he can teach you.

As soon as my hand touched the doorknob, I vigorously opened the door and went inside.

The whole room was in darkness. He couldn't even see an inch ahead, but Hyun-jun walked into the deep darkness with a faint smile on his face.

Soon, a dim light in the center turned on and a handsome young man with black hair in a noble robe appeared.

"His Majesty… … ."

"Long time no see. I hear a lot has happened during that time."

"I need your strength."

said frankly. Seeing Hyun-jun like that, the sergeant-at-arms smiled and opened his mouth with an interesting expression.

"Do you need stealth and assassination skills?"

"That's right. I want to learn stealth techniques that no one sees, and assassination techniques that can kill even the strongest with one blow."

"At your level, perfect stealth is out of the question."

Hyeonjun bowed his head in disappointment at the words of the messenger.

I thought it would not be easy, but after hearing it in person, I couldn't help but lose my will a little.

"But it's not difficult to teach limited stealth. Fortunately, it seems that you have accumulated enough magical powers thanks to your steady training in the magic technique that the Withered Miller taught you."

He said with a satisfied expression on his face.

"What do you mean by limited stealth?"

"I will teach you the secret art of completely erasing your appearance and presence at night or in places where there is darkness."

"Is that possible? I heard that even S-class hunters who have specialized in stealth techniques can't completely erase their bodies and spirits... … ."

It is not difficult to erase the presence, but it is not easy to become completely transparent.

Being in a state of complete invisibility was only possible with the Transcendental level among the magic-based hunters.

"I don't want you to compare yourself to such garbage. I am special."

Perhaps he was offended, the sergeant frowned slightly.

"Then let's get to the point. From now on, the stealth technique I am going to tell you is close to magic."

I thought it had something to do with magic from the moment he said he could completely hide his appearance, but it was as expected.

"The simple explanation of the theory is to hide in a veil of darkness. It's not as high-level magic as Dimensional Refraction, but since it belongs to high-level magic, it consumes a lot of magic. And there is a limitation that it can only be used where darkness exists."

"I think that kind of restriction is trivial."

"Great attitude."

The sergeant clapped.

"What should I do before Inje?"

There is one thing that I realized while visiting the room of my previous life several times.

In order to awaken a new blessing, one must continuously perform certain movements or attain enlightenment to increase the synchronization rate with the previous life.

In the case of Danzig, we had to raise the rate of empathy. He was able to obtain protection by sympathizing with the terrible despair and sorrow he felt.

"From now on, I will lock you in an endless darkness. In order to hide in the veil of darkness, we have to have a high affinity with the darkness, so there is nothing we can do about it."

The savior demanded living in the dark as a way to increase their affinity.

"It may take several months. It may take several years. It doesn't matter if you go crazy. The protection of this room will restore your mental state to normal."

It was an ignorant training method that could only be used in a space where time did not flow. But there were no other sharp numbers.

Hyeonjun was also vaguely guessing that, so he meekly nodded his head.

"I am prepared."

"You seem to have a strong will. Withered Miller is commendable."

"Let's get started."

Time is not cloudy here, but I rushed it in a hurry.

The sergeant raised the corners of his mouth slightly and stepped back, letting out a cold laugh. His body began to melt into the darkness.

"I don't even know how long it will take until I wake up. Good luck. Kang Hyun-jun."

At the end of those words, the body of the Hassassin disappeared. The dim lights were also turned off. Now it was in complete darkness.

'You can't even see an inch ahead.'

In general, if you stay in the dark for a long time, your eyes will adapt and you will be able to see something vaguely.

However, in this darkness given by the messenger, I literally couldn't see anything even though I had been there for over an hour.

* * *

"Congratulations. Now 24 hours have passed."

It was the voice of the Goddess. I heard him from right next to me, but I couldn't see him.

'It felt like three days had passed… … .'

Time passes slower than you think.

I didn't feel hungry because the sergeant had done something, but I couldn't tell myself how long I would be able to hold out.

"96 hours have passed."

"How much longer do you have to hold out?"

It seemed to slowly fade away. However, it was impossible because the recovery power of the previous life's room was making even the tainted mental state normal.

So it seemed like I was going crazy.

"Is it the limit?"

The sergeant whispered in the dark. His face was nowhere to be seen.

"It's still fine."

"Are you bored?"

didn't answer I didn't think it was boring. Only pain was felt.

"There is a way to get the tune up faster. Would you like to hear it?"

"Tell me."

"Why don't you practice Wither Miller's swordsmanship in this darkness? It won't accumulate magical power, but it will increase your understanding of swordsmanship."

That's a welcome suggestion. Much better than standing still and staring blankly into the dark.

"Would you like a sword?"

"Reach out your hand."

He stretched out his right hand as the sage had said. Something cold touched my fingertips. Hyun-jun immediately recognized that it was the hilt.


He vigorously grabbed the hilt and pulled out his sword. Instinctively, he activated the Auror Blade, but the darkness did not retreat.

"It's no use. It's not just darkness."


And the swordsmanship training began. The messenger no longer told me how much time had elapsed.

He honed his swordsmanship non-stop in the endless darkness.

I couldn't see how far ahead and how much time had passed.

I thought I was going crazy, but the more I did, the more I concentrated on swordsmanship, and the level of that skill increased day by day.

How much practice did you have when the concept of time disappeared? The dark vision was lit up with light.

"Congratulations. You have now mastered one of the secret techniques of that sergeant who terrorized the continent, called the shadow behind it. We don't have enough affinity, but there are few on Earth who dare to fight with stealth."

The sergeant clapped.

"Are you done now?"

I wanted to rest. Because the mental fatigue was enormous. It feels like I've only been swinging a sword for months.

"Unfortunately not. I taught you stealth, but I didn't teach you the art of assassination. From now on, I will teach you my own assassination technique."

After that, the actual assassination training began. And it took Hyun-jun over a month just to learn the basics.

* * *


I woke up in the hospital room. I picked up my phone and checked the time and date.

It seemed like he had spent more than a year in the room of his previous life, but it was still barely past midnight here.

"Mr. Hyeonjun Kang. Are you awake?"

It's Taemin's voice.

"Yes, come in."

"Excuse me."

The door opened and Taemin walked in and sat down on the chair next to the bed. Hyunjun also got up and sat down on the bed.

"You dealt with the spy."

The work is done faster than expected. Hyunjun nodded his head with a satisfied expression.

"good. What is the behavior of the Eco Guild executive?"

"It is clear that we are preparing for the second attack. A report has come in that we are calling out hunters from the executive branch outside."

Taemin answered. The Eco Guild executive took a lot of damage because of Hyun-Jun.

So, in preparation for the second battle, the executive team hunters sent to the outside were summoned. Hyeonjun got up from the bed and grabbed the equipment he had placed next to him.

The shields and swords were tucked into the subspace pockets, and the daggers tucked into the scabbard attached to the vest pockets.

"Go, Hyun-Jun Kang? surely… … ."

"I have no intention of being treated like this."

"Are you planning to attack the Echo Guild Office?"

"Yeah. Yes."

I changed clothes with the answer. Taemin could see that Hyunjun was sincere. He opened his mouth with a cautious expression.

"It is quite dangerous to attack the guild office directly. There may come a time when you will have to deal with other hunters besides the executive hunters."

I didn't add it, but since it's in the city center, I had to keep in mind that special police might be dispatched to prevent further damage if I make a mistake.

"We will annihilate only the executive branch."

"It is close to impossible."

Taemin didn't say it was impossible. Because there are hunters who can do that. However, Hyun-jun thought that he was not at that level yet.

"It would have been impossible yesterday. But not today."

Hyun-jun opened the door of the hospital room with meaningful words.

"Mr. Kang Hyun-jun… … ."

"Please take good care of Sojin noona and my younger brothers."

"Don't worry about that. My men will sacrifice their lives to protect them."

Taemin answered with a voice that felt firm will.

He was grateful for Hyun-jun for saving the Race Guild, and at the same time felt a sense of responsibility because of this situation.

Even if he couldn't participate in the attack on the guild office, he was going to do his best to protect Hyun-jun's precious people.


He left the hospital room with a smile on his lips. And as I left the hospital, I searched for the location of the Eco Guild office with my smartphone.

Since most guilds publicly disclose the location of their offices, it was not difficult to find them through an Internet search.


However, it is a burdensome distance to travel on foot. In the end, I had no choice but to take a taxi to get to the nearby area.

Hyeon-jun, who got off at a point outside 5km, gathered his magical powers and expressed the blessings of the Goddess.

- The merciless darkness of the savior leads you to the veil. As long as the darkness is with you, you become a shadow.

His body melted into darkness as a large amount of magical power drained away.

A large amount of magical power was continuously drained to the extent that it would have been difficult to maintain if not trained with Wither Miller's magic training method.

'Would you like to experiment?'

went to india But he acted as if no one was aware of his existence. Naturally, a cold smile spread across his lips.

'As long as darkness is with me, I am a shadow.'

A cold life fills your eyes.

'Today is the last day of the Eco Guild.'
