Chapter 5 - It's Not Enough, Be Stronger - Part 2



It didn't matter anymore that I heard this mysterious, hallucinating voice. He moved forward with a calm expression.


My heart was surprisingly peaceful. Perhaps being pierced by a spear that he had experienced thousands of times had made him numb to death.


"Let's go, forward."


I thought I would do anything to survive. There was no reason to give up on life in vain, now that I had a "means" to become stronger. Hyun-jun pushed the iron door in front of him with all his might.


cut profit.


The iron door opened with the sound of rusty metal. It was dark, but the green eyes were bright. There was no need or time to check the identity by shining a flashlight.


The owner of the green light, the skeletons started running with a creepy bone sound as soon as they recognized Hyunjun's existence.


"Whoa!"


With a short deep breath, he raised his shield. Little knowledge of Carthage remained. The spear that the skeleton pierced was blocked by Hyunjun's shield.


"?!"


While moaning, as the knowledge that remained in his head told him to, he swung his sword back and counterattacked. The skeleton, whose 'nuclear' was destroyed in one blow, collapsed powerlessly.


The skeletons realized that Hyun-jun was not an easy opponent and surrounded him in a semicircle.


-The righteous shield of Carthage protects you. Don't be afraid. you are not alone.


The protection of Carthage began. At the same time, knowledge related to the conditions necessary for the activation of protection entered my mind.


'Does it trigger when protection is needed?'


Carthage's Blessing is triggered when the subject is in danger of needing protection.


However, it was the information that I realized while organizing my thoughts with the information that had been injected so far that it could be pulled out by force using magical power.


There was blessings, but there was no hope. There were five skeletons that were Class C Beasts, and there were two Skeleton Sergeants that corresponded to Class B.


There were many skeletons, but in the case of a sergeant, it was a powerful beast that had no chance of winning.


"to the end… … Goes… … ."


Hyunjun's eyes shone sharply. It was the moment when the beasts rushed towards him.


-The last swordsman, Withered Miller, admiring your rapid growth and firm determination, intervenes forcibly. Rejoice! Now, it's a very brief moment, but the last swordsman descends on your body.


It was an unfamiliar voice. He was curious about the source, but Hyun-jun decided not to care.


"Only this one time."


This time, it wasn't an unfamiliar voice. And I heard it from nearby. Hyunjun turned his head to look around, but he couldn't. My body didn't move.


"I have taken control of your body now. I have no intention of harming you, so leave it to me in peace."


Saying that, he picked up a sword that he did not know when he dropped it. It was then that Hyun-jun realized that his body was moving at will, regardless of his will.


"Unfortunately, there is not much time allowed for me because it is a forced intervention. I will skip the explanation and act immediately."


He scattered cold eyes. Seeing the 5 skeletons and 2 skeleton sergeants aiming their weapons, Withered Miller frowned.


At the same time, Hyun-jun was able to read the feeling of discomfort.


"Are you aiming a weapon at the swordsman on the subject of the undead? You are rude."


raised the sword. A faint aura shone from the blade.


It was impossible for an F-class hunter to manifest the Auror Blade, but withered Miller had a dissatisfied expression.


"Is this the limit with my body right now… … ? Of course, I can say that I'm good enough and very talented, but I'm not satisfied with it."


Skeletons ran with the sound of rattling bones.


"Kneel down."


swung his sword The lower body of the skeletons disappeared with a piercing sound.


The same was true of the B-class monsters, Skeleton Sergeants. They all fell to pieces on the cold stone floor.


'Wow, what's going on?'


It happened in an instant. Hyun-jun's consciousness didn't even know what had happened.


"Finish."


The heads of 5 skeletons and 2 skeleton sergeants were all smashed. This time, he could not even recognize the movement of swinging his sword.


When I came to my senses, I saw skeletons who had lost their heads lying around on the floor.


"Is this a night… … ? I can help you up to this point."


It seems like a self-talk, but in fact, it was meant to Hyun-jun, who had temporarily retreated to the inside due to the advent of the withered miller.


As soon as he finished speaking, even in the B-class, which is called the realm of transcendence, the skeleton knights corresponding to the elite-class beasts appeared.


'There are four B-class elite witches… … ? lost… … .'


Hyunjun was desperate. From his point of view as an F-class hunter, the B-class elite demonic beasts were like the realm of a very high god.


They were monsters that could wipe out a city even if only one jumped out of the dungeon.


"You don't have to worry. Because this body is incomparably strong with those hybrids."


The tip of the recovered sword was aimed at the Skeleton Knights in turn. They gathered around Hyun-jun, where the withered miller had descended.


A green aura shone in the deep darkness. And withered Miller scattered cold eyes towards them.


"Reincarnation… … . It would be nice to have my movements deeply engraved."


A faint aura gleamed from the sword he raised as he finished speaking briefly. The next moment, all Skeleton Knights were lying down with their 'core' destroyed.


'Damn, what's going on... … .'


It was his own body, but he didn't know what had happened. It was an instantaneous moment that transcended his thoughts.


"Don't be too surprised. You will be like this too."


Cold eyes scanned the surroundings.


"'We' will make you the strongest. Until that day comes,"


'It's that day… … . What do you mean?'


No words came out. So I asked a question in my mind. Fortunately, withered Miller seemed to hear Hyun-jun's voice shouting from within.


"I want to explain in detail, but it seems that this is the limit with your body. Now I have to go back."


There were many things I wanted to ask. However, at some point, the full magical energy felt in the whole body disappeared, and it was after the control of the body returned to its original state.


Magical power was originally something that could be dealt with with Hunter Awakening, and now Hyunjun was used to it, but this amount was unfamiliar to him.


"What… … ."


Confusion came along with extreme fatigue, but there was no room for it. The dungeon raid was not over yet, and the door to return to was closed.


I had no choice but to move on. Even though everyone knew this dungeon was a C-class elite, it actually belonged to the B-class elite. It was difficult to attack for a typical F-class hunter to become a cold corpse at the entrance.


- Rest assured. You are no longer an ordinary F-class hunter. 990,000 past lives are watching you.


There was no emotion in the unfamiliar voice, and it was unkind to the point that there was no explanation. But Hyun-jun knew it clearly.


That withered Miller's words that it makes you the strongest are not bluffs.


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


The shield reinforced with the Auror Shield bounced off the spear. Hyun-jun quickly dug into the skeleton's posture at that moment, not missing it.


The powerfully stabbed sword destroyed the core of the undead. The whole body of the skeleton collapsed as if it had been broken.


"haha."


Hyunjun stumbled as he let out a rough breath. The body was drenched in sweat.


Although it is said that Carthage is protected, it was not easy for him, who was an ordinary F-class hunter until yesterday, to attack the B-class elite dungeon.


'Is everything in this area cleaned up?'


I looked around. I didn't see anything that could be a threat. The beasts of the dungeon do not stray from their realm.


When I checked the clock, it was past 10 pm and my stamina was limited. Now I had to rest.


It was not easy to attack a large dungeon in one day, so it was common to sleep in a safe place.


I unpacked my luggage against the wall and lay down with my backpack as a pillow. Hyeon-jun fell asleep, unable to overcome the drowsiness that was pouring out as he was afraid to lay himself down.


* * *


"Wow, here… … ."


When I woke up, I was in a dream. It was frustrating, but I was happy.


'What kind of room are there so many… … ?'


Iron gates filled the walls of the cavity so wide that the end could not be seen. Unlike other iron gates, there was no lock in sight.


"'The righteous shield'… … ?"


Hyun-jun read the letters engraved on the iron gate aloud. Neither Korean, English, nor Japanese, it was the first time I had seen the characters that seemed not of this world, but I could read them. The reason was unknown.


Suddenly, his hand grabbed the doorknob and slowly pushed the iron door open. Upon entering, the iron door slammed shut with a 'bang!' and the light turned on, illuminating the dark room.


In the center of the spacious room was Carthage.


"Are you here?"


Carthage's eyes turned to Hyun-jun. His expression was dry, but his voice was somehow filled with happy emotions.


"I will ask you one thing. Can you make me stronger?"


"Then did you think it would end here? I promise you, you will reach a level you never imagined."


My heart didn't stop beating.


"Is it possible to be an SSS-class hunter?"


"Are you talking about the level where only 4 people in the world you are in have reached?"


Hyunjun nodded at the sharp voice.


"It's ridiculous."


Carthage shook her head. However, Hyun-joon did not disappoint. SSS-class hunters did not even want it from the beginning


I just thought that I had to be strong enough not to be ignored by anyone.


"Are you just going to be satisfied with that level?"
