Chapter 6 - It's Not Enough, Be Stronger - Part 3



"That means… … ."


"I will leave it to your imagination. Come this way first."


Hyunjoon proceeded with his steps.


"I was watching. He fought quite well against skeletons."


"Oh, is that so? Thank you."


A smile spread across Hyunjin's lips. An overwhelmingly powerful man who could not see the end was 'acknowledging' and praising him. I didn't feel bad.


"But it is still not enough. Are you familiar with it? To survive in that dungeon, you have to become stronger."


There is a way to be strong later. I didn't want to die alone in the dungeon when I came here. I wanted to go out alive.


"By the way, why are you helping me?"


I suddenly wondered. So I carefully asked the question.


"Is that important?"


Hyunjun shook his head.


"I can't explain the details right now. But the day will surely come when you will use that power. If you understand, raise your shield."


The reason was unknown, but it seemed to be a problem that could not be explained now, given that the topic was changed in a hurry.


At his urging, Hyun-jun calmly raised his shield. However, it was different from before.


Unlike the posture he took when he first met Carthage, he now looks like an elite soldier who has only trained in shield skills for more than 10 years.


"It's a good attitude. It seems that the memory I gave you is well established."


Carthage was amazed. The smile that spread across his lips emanated a happy emotion.


"Then, I will start training from now on. Summons."


"Cow, summons?"


An unexpected starter word came out of Carthage's mouth. At the same time, a magic circle was drawn in the air. Through it, a green-skinned beast came out.


"troll? Were you a summoner?"


"Some of us have summoners who have ruled the dimension. I got some help from him."


"i See… … ."


"You don't have to be too shy. He seems to want to meet you too... … . If you get the chance, you will get that power."


As I traced back my memory, it seemed that an unfamiliar voice had brought out the phrase '990,000 past lives'.


So, does that mean that 990,000 people who are as strong as Carthage can help them become stronger? Hyunjun felt his body tremble with excitement.


Their training was not common. Even though it was only once, I could understand a little bit because a lot had changed after the dreadful training with Carthage.


"Before starting the practice, let me explain the theory. Have you ever heard of 'striking the shield'?"


"Yeah, I know a little bit about it."


I've seen it in game.


"Shields are also a great means of attack. In particular, a shield reinforced with Auror Shield can be a great blunt weapon depending on its use."


Hyunjun calmly nodded at Carthage's explanation. His gaze was still on the troll. I couldn't let go of the tension because I didn't know when an attack would come.


"I am nervous. That's good attitude."


Carthage nodded with satisfaction.


"Because of the protection I have given you, you will probably have some knowledge of shield striking. Try to remember."


"I remembered. But it's not clear."


Hyunjun frowned. No matter how hard I tried, my memory was blurred. However, since it was related to the basic shielding technique, it seemed to know the extent of its movement.


"You are absorbing memories faster than you think. This is also a great talent."


As Carthage raised his hand, the troll speared his spear at Hyun-jun, ready to attack. There was a very brief silence amidst the tension.


"From now on, the trolls will attack you. Defeat the trolls only by hitting the shield."


"Are you serious?"


"Relax. Here, even if my heart is pierced and my head is smashed, I will not die."


Turns out, he only had a shield in his hand. Hyunjun was shocked. Trolls are very regenerating, so they must be killed in one hit.


So, the blade was effective, and to deal with it with a blunt weapon, there was no choice but to smash the head.


"By the way, this guy isn't just a troll, he's a zealot."


The troll berserk was a B-class elite magical beast. It was on the same level as the Skeleton Knight.


"Okay. Get started."


Hyunjun said, covering his body with a shield. He was still an F-class hunter, but it was different from the past. So he was confident that he would not be defeated horribly even against a B-class beast. But it was an illusion.


"Cuckoo!"


B-class beasts were different from C-class beasts. At the same time as the start, after not being able to hold out for a while, a spear was pierced in the heart, and it continued to be pierced from it.


After being stuck in the window about 100 times, I was able to come to my senses.


"Whoa!"


Hyunjun calmly spread his distance and organized his thoughts. The lack of weapons such as spears or swords was a huge penalty. The duration of the Aura Shield was not yet long, and the shield striking action was so large that if it did not hit, it was easily counterattacked.


'Is this an experience? … ?'


I thought I knew the reason for practicing like this, but only a sigh came out. It was painful and annoying, but I couldn't stop because I was looking forward to how strong I would become after this hardship.


"come!"


"I will go again."


Carthage gave the instructions, and the troll berserker acted. There was only a faint afterimage left in his vision, and when he came to his senses, the spear had pierced his abdomen.


"Uh-huh!"


He collapsed, dripping red blood from his mouth. The troll zealot drew a dagger and struck Hyeon-jun in the head.


The moment I thought I was dead, everything was regenerated and I woke up a little further away from the troll berserk.


"It's the 250th. Are you still?"


Carthage urged.


"It will be different this time."


Hyunjun picked up the fallen shield. You are now used to the movements of the troll berserk. The time for counterattack has come.


"come!"


"I will go again."


The troll berserk moved swiftly. It was still fast, but this time it was different.


'see!'


He was used to the movement.


'It's here!'


He did all he could to activate the Auror Shield. The troll berserk was so fast that he couldn't afford to call on Carthage's blessing.


Although the Aura Shield, which was weak enough to be incomparable to that through protection, was nestled in the shield.


'that's enough!'


He swung his shield vigorously to predict the movement of the troll berserk.


Quang!


The moment the fortified shield struck the body of the troll berserk, a detonation-like roar erupted.


The body made of protein could not withstand the blow of the Auror Shield and was horribly shattered. There was no trace of the upper body above the waist.


"Hey, this can't be… … ."


"Congratulations. Hyun-Jun Kang. This makes you stronger."


It was a terrifying rate of growth.


* * *


When I opened my eyes, what I saw was the dark ceiling of the dungeon. Awakened from the dream, the Carthaginian teachings and knowledge remained.


Hyunjun got up with a confident expression on his face. His body was light as if he had received the highest level of buff.


I could instinctively realize that many things had changed from before the dream.


"Go."


I picked up the shield and sword I had placed beside me. I thought it was a C-class that an F-class hunter could never attack alone, but it turned out that it was in the B-class elite dungeon, but I had no intention of giving up.


He muttered to himself, as if promising himself, and moved forward.


Two lighting drones illuminated the darkness. Hyun-jun moved to a place where he was suspicious of danger, illuminating it with a flashlight.


Wedge lover!


Something flew through the wind. Hyun-jun raised his shield and called for Carthage's protection.


-The righteous shield of Carthage protects you. As long as protection is with us, the shield will not be shaken by any impact.


The voice pierced my ears. The Auror Shield reinforced the old shield.


bang!


It was a direct hit. However, the thrown spear could not penetrate the Auror Shield and bounced off. The impact caused dust to rise from the surrounding stone floor.


"Wow!"


Hyeonjun let out a shallow moan as he blocked the spear that flew at high speed, but his defensive posture did not waver.


less slack!


A Skeleton Knight appeared in the dark. A glimmer of green eye gleams eerily from the empty eye sockets.


Although it was a B-class elite-grade beast, there was only one. Hyun-jun slowly narrowed the distance with confidence.


Skeleton Knight also pulled out the great sword that was placed next to him. As the distance narrowed, the gigantic bayonet felt threatened.


'The Auror Shield is… … ?'


has disappeared. Judging by the state of the shield now, it seemed that he could not withstand that formidable greatsword. Even the greatsword was faint, but it had an aura.


'Everyone, bless you again... … .'


But there was no response.


'Hey, I don't have enough magical power.'


Blessing was a buff-type magic that consumed magical power. It is said that many things have changed while practicing in the dream, but still there is little mana that can be dealt with.


Compared to other F-class hunters, it was an overwhelming amount, but it was difficult to use protection multiple times.


'come!'


I couldn't afford to think long. The Skeleton Knight's greatsword was aimed at Hyeonjun's neck.


However, since he became stronger through the training in his dreams, he leisurely avoided the wielded greatsword and dug into the arms of the Skeleton Knight.


"Ha!"


Shield Strike!


Quang!


It wasn't a shield that was reinforced with an auror, but a part of the skeleton knight's ribs were smashed, revealing the 'core'. Hyunjun didn't miss it.


It was different from before. The sword, which was quickly recovered, was stabbed at the 'nuclear'. When the 'core' penetrated by the sword broke, the Skeleton Knight collapsed powerlessly.


"Did you do it?"


He let out a plausible self-talk and put the sword in. Skeleton Knight's corpse disappeared shortly thereafter. Hyun-jun took the leftover magic stone.


Don't forget that this is all money. He turned his head and looked around. The appearance of the mage was not visible.


'If I go a little further, I think it will be the boss room… … .'


I wasn't sure, but I felt that way.


'Let's take a break and go.'


There wasn't much magic. Since it is a B-class elite dungeon, there is a possibility that the boss will have at least a B-class elite beast, and if there is no luck, there is a possibility that the lowest-class A-class monster will appear.


In order to survive, he had to gather the magical powers that could manifest his protection at least once.


After thoroughly scouting the surroundings to ensure safety, he moved to a corner and leaned against the wall.


Then, after drinking water and jerky, I closed my eyes for a while.


How much time has passed? Hyun-jun opened his eyes in a hurry with the sudden anxiety.


"Huh!"


I hurriedly looked around, but there was nothing. There were only two light drones hovering around, driving away the darkness with bright light.


"Magic is… … ."


fully recovered.


"Go."


He spoke to himself as if he was whipping himself, then picked up his shield and sword. Then I walked along the aisle.


After walking for about an hour without a break, a huge iron gate that could not be compared with before was revealed.


Hyunjun opened the door without hesitation. As the iron door opened with the sound of rusty metal, the drone illuminated the interior.


"Skeleton… … champion… … ."


A skeleton armed with a circular iron shield and sword guarded the end of the wide cavity. It was larger than other skeletons.


Hyun-jun immediately realized that it was a Skeleton Champion, the lowest-ranking A-Class Beast Beast.


'It's not bad luck.'


I thought that if it was a B-class elite magic beast, there would be a chance of success.


But even though it's the lowest rank, the Skeleton Champion, who is a Class A Beast Beast... … .


"I will go till the end."


He raised his shield with a promise. Even if it's the lowest rank of A-class, if you keep your mind, you'll be able to deal with it.


It was a moment when I thought that I could do it because I had become stronger than before.


"uh… … ?"


A terrible pain came from my lower back. When he woke up, the Skeleton Champion was behind him, and red blood gushed out from his waist.


But Hyun-joon was not embarrassed. I was used to the pain. He raised his shield without saying a word.


-The righteous shield of Carthage protects you.


The hospice has begun. A cold life flowed from Hyunjun's eyes.
