Chapter 27 - Guild Wars - Part 1



Hyeonjun visited Taemin's office located inside the Race Guild office to receive a report on what's behind the Echo Guild.


"Are you here?"


"Is there any new information?"


When asked the question, Taemin made a complicated expression.


"Recently, we invested additional funds to the intelligence department to investigate, but there was no income to report to Kang Hyeon-jun. Sorry."


I expected it, but it was bittersweet to say that I didn't find out again this time.


However, it's not easy to find out who's behind the guild, so it's not that I don't understand.


If it had been an easy task, the Echo Guild's background would have been known to all when they began absorbing other guilds in earnest.


"It doesn't matter if it's a small thing, so please keep reporting it."


"Yes, I understand. Oh, and by the way, I got a call from a real estate agent a while ago. Everything is ready, so you can move in right away."


"that is a good news."


A smile spread across his lips. Now goodbye to the narrow one-room.


I bought a house in a hurry for the safety of Sojin and my younger siblings, but buying a three-story detached house may be a mixture of personal desires.


After completing his duties, Hyun-jun left Tae-min's office to visit So-jin and his younger brothers.


They were living in a temporary dormitory set up within the race guild office.


"Brother!"


As soon as I entered the temporary dormitory, a boy of short stature threw himself at me.


It was quite heavy, but Hyun-jun was a hunter with excellent physical abilities, so he took it with ease.


"How are you?"


"Yeah, the Hunter uncles bought me sweets too."


"It would have been nice."


He answered with a smile on his lips.


The boy was soon tired, so he got out of Hyun-jun's hands and walked around the dormitory with the other children.


Seeing this, Hyunjun raised his head with a short sigh.


"I'm here?"


Sojin was standing at the end of the hallway.


"Sister, can we talk for a moment?"


"Huh… … I'm okay."


"Let's go to the empty room over there and talk."


Hyunjun went into the room first and sat down on a chair. Then, Sojin came in and closed the door.


"What's up?"


Sojin asked. Hyun-jun explained in detail about the moving plan.


"Are you really okay?"


Whether the attack from the hunters in the orphanage still remains as a terrifying memory, Sojin did not immediately refuse, but carefully thought about Hyunjun's intentions.


"Yeah. It's a three-story detached house, so it won't be uncomfortable."


Already made a plan. The personnel to be sent from the Race Guild and the bodyguards to be hired soon will live on the first floor, Sojin and the younger brothers will live on the second floor, and Hyunjun himself will live on the third floor.


"Can we really stay together?"


Sojin's voice trembled softly. He didn't express it, but he was afraid of being attacked again.


So, she was relieved the moment Hyun-jun suggested we stay in the same house.


"Do not worry. I'll protect you. I'm thinking of hiring an unmanned security system and bodyguards as well. The race guild also decided to send an executive hunter."


"Thanks. Hyun Joon-ah."


Dew formed in her eyes. No other words were heard. Only one word to protect himself clearly penetrated into my ear.


I still remember the back of Hyun-jun, who stood in front of countless enemies that day.


"Do not worry too much. It will be fine."


"Thanks. Thank you so much."


Sojin said with tears in her eyes. All I could do was say thank you.


She wanted to help, but she was too weak for that. He himself knew it well.


"I'll just go."


"do not go… … ."


Sojin checked her watch and grabbed Hyunjun who was about to open the door. Anxiety of unknown cause helped her to be courageous.


"Go to sleep here today."


It's not a difficult request. The residence of the Race Guild office was spacious. There will be at least one room for Hyun-jun to sleep in.


I checked with Taemin just in case, luckily he said that there was one more vacant room in the dorm.


"Yes, I will sleep here today."


"Thank you, Hyunjun."


Sojin smiled bright enough to reveal her dimples after a really long time.


She thought, "I don't know how long it's been since I've laughed like this." And night came.


- The insidious laughter of the sergeant warns you of danger. Someone is aiming for your heart.


Hyeon-jun, who was trying to sleep in the room next to So-jin, heard the messenger's warning and hurriedly threw himself aside.


Two daggers flew and landed where he had just been lying.


"Wind cutter."


There is someone in the dark. He completed the magic with a calm voice. I could feel the flow of magic. It is a different amount from the lower magic fireball.


-The righteous shield of Carthage protects you. As long as the great guardian is with you, nothing can threaten you.


All of a sudden, in his left hand, he held a B-class equipment that he had taken out of his subspace pocket, a 'shield with grudges'.


As Carthage's protection was manifested, the Auror Shield unfolded. The wind cutter that ripped through the air collided with the Auror Shield.


"Auror users?"


It was an unexpected voice. Seeing the magic move again, it seems that they are casting magic for the second attack.


'It's too late to draw the sword!'


Instead of pulling out his sword, he covered himself with a shield and threw himself at the Magical Hunter in front of him.


Even though the distance was shortened in an instant, the magician hunter did not stop casting.


Hyun-joon saw that and noticed that there was another party.


"Ugh!"


just as expected? With a restrained spirit, the blade from the right was aimed at the neck.


I was able to avoid it easily because I was preparing for a surprise attack to some extent. Of course, it didn't end with evasion.


Quang!


"Cuckoo!"


A shield swung in an unexpected way slammed into the assailant's body. The assailant flew against the wall with a roar and crashed.


"Ugh… … ."


The bones of the whole body were smashed. He didn't stop breathing, but he just moaned and couldn't get up.


At that moment, the magician hunter stopped casting and pulled out his weapon. It was a short sword that was easy to handle even without professional skills.


But it's already too late. The shield wielded by Hyeonjun was being thrust down from above to smash the head of the magical hunter.


"Shit!"


But it was late. The speed at which the shield was swung was too fast for the magic hunter to react.


The moment he raised the shortsword along with the profanity, Hyunjun's shield had already smashed the head of the magical hunter.


Whoops!


The body, which had lost its head, collapsed helplessly.


It was now possible to take a closer look at his outward appearance, which seemed hazy to see if the desensitization magic had been dispelled when the caster died.


He covered his face with a mask and wore a robe over his body.


'Who else?'


He turned his head toward the broken wall.


The man buried in the fragments of the damaged building did not even move as if he had stopped breathing, but Hyun-jun was relieved only after he finished confirming the death by pushing his sword into his heart.


When he left the room, the first place he headed was the next room where Sojin was sleeping.


As soon as I opened the door, I could feel the thick flesh, and I saw an assassin stabbing a dagger in the neck of Sojin, who was sleeping.


"Put that hand away!"


The dagger left behind by the Reaper, the butcher, and tossed. The dagger that flew through the wind pierced the assassin's thigh.


"Wow, did the room next door hit you?"


The assassin changed the target of the attack. Instead of retrieving the butcher, Hyun-jun pulled out a long sword from his subspace pocket and threw himself in front.


- Withered Miller's valiant sword is with you. The sword will not be broken unless righteous courage is broken.


Auror blades rose from the sword. The swung sword aimed at the assassin's neck.


He could not defend the withered miller's mysterious swordsmanship and allowed his neck as it was.


He quickly pulled back, but the wound was deep. His skin cracked and a fountain of blood gushed out.


"Big, blah blah!"


Hyeonjun thrust his sword towards the heart of the assassin who groaned and staggered.


Whoops!


The assassin, who had his heart pierced with a horrifying sound, collapsed helplessly.


Hyeonjun pulled out the sword from his body and looked around.


I even tried to activate the divine protection, but fortunately, no other signs were felt.


'I am not the target.'


The lights didn't even turn on. The power supply has been suppressed.


If it was enough to subdue the power device, there could be no way that there were only three assassins who moved. There will be more.


And their absence here means they have other goals. So, who is the other target?


'Are you the guild leader?'


Even if it was Sojin, the fact that Hyunjun was here today was decided suddenly, so there was no way for the Echo Guild or the person behind it to find out.


From their point of view, if Hyun-jun, the most annoying obstacle, was not the goal, there was a high probability of retaliatory terrorism against the race guild leader.


'Is Kim Tae-min fighting? … ?'


I called but didn't pick up. Hyun-jun couldn't move because he had to protect So-jin and his younger brother.


Then there is only one thing he can do right now.


'You report it to the Special Police Department.'


An emergency message was sent to the special police department on a smartphone.


Although it is said that the security of the dungeon raid has deteriorated, they noticed the surprise and reported it, so unlike the case of the Eco Guild, they will be dispatched quickly.


'In the meantime, I will keep this place.'


Raising the sword and shield imbued with Aurors, he made a vow. No one would be able to cross this hallway he was guarding.


* * *


Last night's raid caused a riot in the race guild.


Thanks to Hyun-jun's report, the special police officers who were patrolling the area arrived early, but in that short time the Race Guild suffered considerable damage.


As soon as the special police investigation was over, Hyun-jun went to see Tae-min. He, too, was leaving after completing the investigation.


"How serious is the damage?"


asked carefully. Taemin opened his mouth with a haggard expression.


"The guild chief is dead."


A deep sadness was oozing out of Taemin's voice. He was a close friend of the race guild leader.


So, the sudden death of the guild leader came as a big shock to him.


"Who will take over the next guild leader?"


If possible, I thought it would be good if Taemin, who I was close with, took over as the leader of the race guild.


"Actually, there are people who are thinking about it even on our guild side."


"Who is that?"


Taemin looked like he wasn't talking to me


Hyun-jun frowned slightly at an ominous thought, but the answer he heard the next moment was different from what he expected.


"Mr. Hyeonjun Kang. Become the guild leader of our race! All the executives in the guild agreed! There were no objections! Please lead us!"


The last hope that Reis had in mind was a hunter named Kang Hyeon-jun.
