Chapter 58 - Someone's Nightmare - Part 3



When I opened my eyes, it was an unfamiliar ceiling. I slowly got up and turned my head to see what was around me.


The size and facilities beyond single rooms seemed to tell us that this is a VIP room.


On the sofa next to him, Sojin was sitting rather idly and sleeping.


A smile spread across Hyun-joon's lips because he looked quite cute despite his older age.


"cute."


Thoughts came out of my mouth unconsciously. I wanted to miss it, but fortunately, Sojin had now reached a level where she was sleeping comfortably beyond the level of Jo, so it seemed as if she had not heard it at all.


"Can I come in?"


A sharp voice was heard along with the popular chuck. It was Ha Jong-seo, the head of the intelligence department. Hyunjun opened his mouth, capturing the emotions that had raised his head for a moment.


"Come on in."


"Excuse me."


The door slowly opened and the servant walked in. When he saw Sojin sleeping on the sofa, he silenced his footsteps.


As a member of the executive branch who learned assassination techniques, he was good at erasing his presence.


"Are you all right?"


At Jong-seo's question, Hyun-joon raised his magical powers and looked at his body. When Durendal came down, all injuries were healed, so there are still no injuries.


However, the magic furnace was a little twisted, and this was a problem that could be resolved within a day.


"Han So-jin came every day and kept her seat."


As Jong-seo said, So-jin came to the hospital every day and waited for Hyun-jun to wake up.


Hyeonjun nodded as he felt his heart grow cold.


"How many days have passed?"


"It's a week."


"What happened to the executive director?"


The last thing I saw was Taemin's face that was covered in blood and collapsed. So I didn't feel comfortable.


"Fortunately, my life was saved. However, his injuries are serious and he is still receiving treatment. I have regained consciousness, but it is not enough to return to work, so I and Team Leader Lee Gyu-hwan are taking charge of the executive department."


"Is Team Leader Lee Gyu-hwan taking on an important task?"


It was said that he had a weakness with his sister and fellow executive hunters, but it was too early to fully trust him.


"All the important things are handled by me."


It was a satisfactory answer. Hyunjun nodded and opened his mouth.


"Where is the executive director now?"


"I am resting in the hospital room next door. For the sake of security efficiency, we found an adjoining ward."


"I will go to the executive director's room and hear what happened during the week."


Sojin was sleeping here. I didn't want to wake her, who had a lot of fatigue on her face. Jongseo also understood Hyunjun's meaning and moved on first. The two quietly left the room and closed the door.


"This is it."


The servant began to guide. Right next to it was the hospital room where Taemin was hospitalized, and three executive hunters in suits were guarding the hallway.


I opened the door and went inside. It was small compared to Hyun-jun's hospital room, but the scenery of the luxurious single room was visible at a glance.


As I moved a little further, I could see Taemin lying in the hospital bed.


"Ah… … Guild Master."


"You don't have to get up. Lay back before you get mad."


Hyunjun stopped Taemin from trying to get up.


Seeing the bandages wrapped around the level of a mummy, which is hard to find in Egypt these days, shows that the injury is serious.


The condition of the bandages was neat whether the hospital was paying attention.


On the other hand, seeing Taemin like that, I was a little moved.


Although I was instructed to keep Sojin, I did not know that I would give my life to the extent of being so devastated that I would carry out the instructions.


"Sorry, I'm sorry. Guild Master."


"Once you know, focus on recovery. I want the executive director to return to work as soon as possible."


At Hyeonjun's words, Taemin trembled as he recalled the murderous increase in work due to the recent expansion.


"The recovery has been good. You'll probably get better in a few days."


Jong-seo, who had been silently listening, carefully struck the final blow.


Taemin glanced at him with resentful glances, then pulled it away. There has never been a day I hated Hunter's unique ability to regenerate more than today.


"Fortunately, the."


In the case of a B-class or higher hunter, unless the injury was fatal enough to threaten life, most of the cases would be evacuated within a week with the help of a recovery hunter.


However, because Taemin was fatally injured, he did not fully recover while Hyunjun was unconscious.


"However, the hospital facilities are very good. How about here?"


"It is the best hospital."


Jong-seo, who was standing next to Hyun-jun, answered Hyun-jun's question. Contrary to his characteristic calm voice, Hyun-jun was a little embarrassed when the name "Cheil Hospital" popped up.


"Then you mean that the place I was in a while ago was the VIP room at Cheil Hospital?"


"That's right. Guild Master."


Taemin nodded his head. Hyunjun opened his mouth again.


"Is this the best hospital I know?"


"Yes. If you are talking about the largest Hunter Hospital in Asia, you are right."


Somehow, it was a lot more spacious and luxurious than a typical VIP room, but I didn't know it would be the best hospital.


However, if what Jong-seo said was true, I wondered "how" he was hospitalized. This is because the VIP room at Cheil Hospital is not a place where you can be admitted simply because you have a lot of money.


"Who are you?"


Someone intervened.


"This is Jin-ah Lee."


Hyun-jun frowned at Tae-min's answer and organized his thoughts.


I was confused because I had regained consciousness a while ago, but I could quickly recall the memory of a person with the name 'Lee Jin-ah'.


"Are you talking about S-class magic hunter Lee Jin-ah?"


And she was the second daughter of Cheil Group. If she had intervened, it was not at all strange to wake up in the VIP room of Cheil Hospital.


"Yes, this time Jinah Lee helped us a lot."


"Please report the situation in detail. What happened in the week after I passed out?"


In Taemin's answer, Hyunjun asked a question. It seemed that I should receive a verbal report right now.


"Can I explain?"


Jongseo, who had been listening quietly, took a cautious step closer and asked. Hyunjun nodded his head. Likewise, it was thought that he was more aware of the situation than Taemin, who had lost consciousness.


"Just after the guild leader lost consciousness, the Great Evil guild members arrived at the scene. Fortunately, Joo Hye-ri was stolen by my subordinates, but the other corpses were not recovered, so the Great Evil Guild members confirmed it and soon became a confrontation."


I think it was a tense situation.


"There were seven B-class hunters for one A-class hunter. On the other hand, on our side, there were only four B-class hunters from the executive branch who arrived first under the guidance of the guild leader."


Jongseo spoke in a trembling voice. Just putting it in my mouth seemed to remind me of the tension at the time.


If there were four B-class hunters, it was the power that one A-class hunter could organize alone.


Jong-seo risked her life to protect Hyeon-jun and Tae-min who had fallen.


"Did you send a rescue call before you died… … ?"


Hyunjun frowned and muttered to himself. I thought the situation was cleared up in an instant, but because Hyeri didn't kill her, I could think of the possibility that she might have sent a rescue signal right before she was captured.


"Did Jinah Lee help you?"


"Yeah. Thanks to his guarantee, he resigned from the Great Evil Guild for the time being, but the Special Police Department is conducting an official investigation into Joo Hye-ri's disappearance. If it is known that the guild leader is conscious, an investigator from the Special Police Department will visit within three days."


"It's difficult."


I didn't know things would turn out like this.


"Sorry. I should have disposed of the body sooner... … ."


"Because I lost consciousness… … ."


"No, it's not the intelligence chief or the chief executive officer."


Hyunjun's eyes turned to the window. The sky was dark and several lights were visible below.


Although he didn't speak any more, Taemin and Jongseo could easily guess what Hyunjun was thinking.


"We'll talk later. Who is coming."


A sign was felt. At Hyeonjun's warning, Taemin and Jongseo silently nodded their heads. After a while, he gradually got closer and stopped in front of the door.


'Is this Jin-ah Lee?'


Hunters belonging to the race executive were controlling the hallway, and it was not difficult to guess by selecting candidates who came to the door without difficulty and who might have a recent business.


Before long, the door opened wide without knocking, and a man with a sharp impression, dressed in a black suit, entered first. Hyunjoon traced his memory.


'Was it Park Seok-hyun?'


He is an A-class top hunter. When I first met Lee Jin-ah, she was the attendant who was guarding her.


Then, Jin-ah Lee in a light dress walked in.


The long, wavy hair down to the waist gave a calm feeling, but the face was sharp like a cat.


If she is aegyo, she's pretty pretty, but how many men would a woman like that be? Hyunjun shook his head.


"long time no see. Hyeonjun Kang Mr. But why are you suddenly shaking your head?"


"I cleared up a delusion."


Jin-ah still did not understand what Hyun-jun said, but she did not bother to add an explanation.


"Shall we relocate? I have something to say... … ."


Jin-a blurted out her words and shifted her gaze to Tae-min and Jong-seo. Hyunjun opened his mouth with a calm expression.


"They are my closest friends."


It wasn't a long explanation, but it meant people you could trust.


There was little change in Jong-seo's expression at Hyeon-jun's words, but Tae-min seemed to be genuinely moved.


"priority… … Thank you for taking care of me."


"It was not difficult."


Considering the influence of Cheil Group, you can see that her words are not pretentious.


"I think there is something you want, but if you tell me, I will be grateful."


"It's just a favor. Of course, we were moved by this event, so we counted the number of cases that were transferred to our Cheil Group."


The conversation didn't go any further. It seemed like a really simple favor.


'At the end of the day, I have to... … .'


Hyun-jun shook his head and walked towards Jin-ah.


"Then, using this meeting as an opportunity, there is one thing I would like to suggest… … Would you like to hear it?"


"I'll see you when I hear it."


Jin-ah's eyes twinkled with curiosity. I wondered what the man in front of me would suggest to him, the second daughter of the Cheil Group.


"I have many enemies."


"I know. You've been stabbed all over the place."


"There will be more enemies in the future."


"I don't mean to be quiet."


"I want Cheil Group to be a shield for me and the race guild."


The timing was too questionable to think that the Great Evil Guild had nothing to do with 'behind the scenes'.


It's foolish to fight alone when you don't know how big the 'behind' is.


I thought it would be good to have at least one trustworthy alliance. And at least the Cheil Group had a lot of potential in the current situation.


"that word… … Do you know what that means?"


"Yes, I know."


Hyun-jun nodded in response to Jin-ah's question.


"Then you know how risky this is, right? Are you worth it and why? What can Cheil Group gain from this alliance?"


I was waiting for that question. Hyunjun opened his mouth with a calm expression.


"Building an absolute friendship with future SSS-class Hunters."
