Chapter 53 - Solo Raid - Part 1



When he woke up, he was in the Hall of a Past Life.


He had no memory of falling asleep, but he seemed to have lost consciousness as soon as a huge amount of magic was injected.


"Who is this time… … ?"


The voice seemed to have been heard at the end, but I couldn't remember exactly what it was about.


The door in front of me was locked with a padlock.


Hyunjun calmly turned his head and looked around.


And after a while, he found a door that had no lock on it, and headed there.


"'A person who defies fate'… … ."


Hyun-jun read aloud the 'Lee Myung' engraved on the red leather-covered door.


'Let's go in.'


If there's one thing I've realized while meeting past lives, it's meaningless to ponder for long in front of their doors.


It was important to first have the courage to open the door and enter.


The thought did not last long.


Hyun-jun grabbed the doorknob and opened the door vigorously.


It was pitch black darkness.


But it wasn't just that it was vaguely dark.


As I walked in, a faint light leaked from here and there.


It was like a dazzling starlight.


"this… … ."


Just in case, I moved my gaze downward, and under my feet, a small salt-like star that seemed to have started from a very distant place shone.


There was no floor. It was like floating in an empty space.


I was distracted by that dazzling appearance, but for a moment I couldn't take my eyes off of him.


- Is it beautiful?


I woke up to the heavy yet soft voice and raised my head.


Standing in front of him was 'someone' wearing a red cloak.


He quickly moved his gaze to his face, but he couldn't see properly because of the black shadow.


"Yeah. It's beautiful."


-One, things that don't exist now.


As 'he' finished his short answer and waved his blackened hand, all the starlight disappeared.


It was like being eaten by the pitch-black darkness.


- My name is Deus. It is the absolute will that represents the 990,000 past lives. Before intervening in your fate, I came here because I have one last thing to check.


"Please explain the situation."


-Check your will before you start interfering with fate.


"Interfering with fate? What is it?"


Hyunjun asked a question.


I needed to explain what the concept of interfering with fate was.


- Literally. With the strong and absolute will of your 990,000 past lives, you are interfering in your fate.


"Is that possible?"


I've heard that one of the only four SSS-class hunters, 'Erina of Trembling', can use a buff called 'Luck Explosion'.


But I had never heard of the power to interfere with fate.


-99 thousand It is not impossible with the will of my previous life and my power. Of course, there is no absolute interference. It only gives you a tiny bit of hope to prepare you for the absolute despair to come.


"What is absolute despair?"


One day, he suddenly began to receive the attention of his 990,000 past lives.


From that day on, everything changed, and the F-class hunter became an A-class hunter.


I thought there would be a price, but I didn't know that the heavy word 'absolute despair' would come out.


-They are coming.


Deus said in a low, subdued voice.


Hyun-jun waited for Deus to explain more, but he remained silent.


"Who are they?"


In the end, Hyunjun couldn't stand it and asked a question.


- I can't answer now. However, it is clear that if you do not receive your protection, it is such a huge disaster that you have no chance of winning.


Deus paused for a moment. Then he took a few steps towards Hyun-jun.


-If you receive my protection, you have at least a 1% chance. But they will also know you exist.


"What if they find out about my existence?"


-They will send skirmishers. By the standards of your world, they are at least S-class, so it won't be easy to deal with.


"What if I don't receive protection?"


- Skirts won't come. But one day the day of destruction will come. You never know when that will be, but being a fugitive will buy you time.


Deus replied.


Hyunjun frowned. In fact, it was as if there were no options.


"I will ask you one thing. Deus."


- Speak.


"Will you be able to become stronger than you are now if you receive your protection?"


-Do not underestimate the power to intervene in fate. Even if it's a minor interference, everything will change to the extent that it can't even be compared with the past.


At Deus' words, Hyunjun raised the corners of his lips slightly.


Perhaps the answer had been decided from the beginning.


"Give me your blessing. I will not be a fugitive."


Deus spread his arms.


-Congratulations on becoming our 'true colleagues'.


A low voice rang out.


-The interference of fate has begun... … There will be good news in a few days.


* * *


Deus said there would be good news in a few days, but for a week it was a continuation of normal life.


The only thing that changed from before was that it was just after the guild was promoted to the silver tier, so the workload was so high that it was impossible to continue attacking individual dungeons.


"Guild Master. Paldal-gu, Suwon-si has been designated as our raid special zone."


A 'special zone' refers to an area in which the guild can exercise the priority right to attack when a raid occurs.


Usually, it was often assigned within the main activity area of ??the guild.


The priority right to attack is the right to activate when a raid is detected in advance.


"I am stuck in a place where competition is fierce."


After hearing Taemin's report, Hyunjun shook his head and said.


If there are many guilds assigned to the relevant special zone, priority will be exercised and more people will be selected and assigned, so competition will intensify.


When the routing is finished and payment is received, the merit is reduced compared to when there are fewer people.


"Wait."


At the sudden ringing, Hyunjun cut off the conversation and picked up his smartphone.


- This is the Raid Situation Bureau. Are you Hyun-Jun Kang, the leader of the race guild?


It was a call from the Raid Situation Bureau that the guild leaders enjoyed the most and wanted to avoid.


"Yes, I am Kang Hyun-jun."


- I think you should attend the Suwon branch now.


"Did you catch the raid situation in advance?"


Raids can happen suddenly, but sometimes come slowly with some signs.


In this case, it can be caught and reacted in advance.


Priority tactics can only be used when raids have been captured in advance.


-Yes. First of all, please attend the Suwon branch.


"I will go right now."


Is this the 'change' that Deus spoke of? Hyunjoon ended the call and cheered inside.


If a raid situation occurs in the special zone in charge, it can be annoying, but priority can be activated, so if the ability of the guild is sufficient, it can be advantageously performed.


Hyun-jun got into the car and went to the Suwon branch of the Raid Situation Bureau.


A staff was waiting in the lobby on the first floor. With his guidance, I was able to find one of the conference rooms and enter it.


There were already quite a few people gathered inside.


"These are the employees of the Raid Situation Bureau and the guild leader or agents in charge of Paldal-gu. The attendants are a bit mixed."


Taemin caught up and reported in a low voice like a whisper. Hyunjun nodded his head instead of answering.


Then, guided by the staff, he went to his seat and sat down.


"It doesn't seem like everyone has gathered yet."


When 'Great Devil', the only gold tier among the guilds in charge of Paldal-gu, attended the last time, the Raid Situation Bureau staff turned on the monitor to begin explaining the situation.


"This is Park Si-jun, the 2nd team leader of the Suwon branch. I don't have much time, so I'll keep it brief. Signs of a raid situation were found in Paldal-gu. Estimated difficulty level is the highest level of A. The size is small to medium."


After finishing speaking, Sijun pressed the remote control button, and the screen on the wall turned on and a brief video was broadcast.


Brief information about the observed raid and the list of guilds that can declare priority as they are currently designated as special zones were organized.


"As everyone knows, for the race guild who is new to raiding, 'Raid' is similar to 'Dungeon Out' but different. The gate opens to the outside. Unlike dungeon out, it is difficult to catch in advance, but this time, we knew in advance, and now we need to respond quickly to prevent damage.


"what? Was the race also designated by our special zone?"


It was a sharp female voice.


Hyunjun turned his head in the direction the voice was coming from.


There, a woman with short hair in a bright red robe was sitting with her legs crossed. His hair was also red to match the robes.


"This is Joo Hye-ri, the Deputy Chief of the Great Evil Guild."


Taemin, who was sitting next to him, said in a low voice.


Hyunjun nodded his head without saying a word. His gaze was still on Hyeri.


As for the Great Evil, I saw a community post saying that it is a gold tier guild and has a strong influence in Suwon.


"The Rays have been promoted to the Silver Tier this time, and now have the qualifications to take charge of a special raid zone."


Shijun explained. Then Hyeri opened her mouth.


"okay? I'll ask the race guild leader. Are you going to activate priority?"


"Of course I will. It is a right that is justly granted to our guild."


Except for a few special cases, it was rare for a special zone in charge not to declare priority when a raid occurred.


"okay?"


Hyeri raised the corners of her lips.


"Then our guild won't exercise priority."


Then he sheds a smirk, but Hyun-jun was disgusted with his appearance, as if he was watching the devil beckoning.


'You mean territoriality?'


I had no choice but to shake my head.


I thought that a flat land would now appear after crossing the small mountain called Andersen, but I was mistaken.


A bigger mountain called the Great Devil was waiting. Perhaps the 'behind the scenes' intervened.


"Then our blades also give up their priority."


"So is Hellfire."


"We give up too."


The Great Evil was just the beginning.


When they fired a flare, the other guilds declared that they would not exercise priority one after another.


The Great Evil faction acted first, and the guild leaders, who had taken a neutral attitude, took notice and gave up their priority.


"It seems they are trying to control us."


Taemin said.


"Mr. Hyeri Joo. Are you planning to weigh people's lives now?"


Shijun said something.


"I have no intention of doing so… … ? It's just that I don't want to be selected. Didn't I say you wouldn't block raids? And if the race guild leader gives up priority, we'll select it too. Do not worry about it."


"Mr. Hyeonjun Kang?"


This time, Si-jun turned his head toward Hyun-jun.


In his eyes, there was an unspoken pressure to give up priority please.


If it had been him in the past, he would have bowed his head in front of this powerful force.


But now it was different. I swore not to be a cowardly fugitive. So I can't keep my head down.


Hyunjun opened his mouth with a faint smile.


"I will not declare priority."


Laughter came from all over. Hyeri looked at Hyunjun and nodded with a look like that.


"Instead, I will activate the monopoly."
