Chapter 8 - It's Not Enough, Be Stronger - Part 5



As I opened the door and entered, darkness spread under the dim lights.


"no one is here?"


It was different from what I expected, and I suddenly let out the thoughts I had been holding in my mind.


"It's behind you."


He turned his head away, startled by the insidious voice that dug into his ear. Standing there stood a handsome young man with black hair, dressed in the robes of a medieval nobleman.


"nice to meet you. My name is Hasasin. I was watching you."


It was a dark but calm voice.


"First of all, applause."


Then, out of nowhere, I clapped for a minute. When Hyeon-jun looked like he was asking for an explanation, the sergeant opened his mouth with a sneer.


"You could have died."


"I know."


Hye-jin hinted that he could kill Hyun-jun in several actions. While drying Sang-cheol, he said that he shouldn't kill him 'here', and when he found a trap, he tried to push Hyun-jun away.


Having been pierced by Carthage's spear thousands of times and being knocked down hundreds of times by trolls, it wasn't just his fighting skills that improved.


"Keuk! Ha ha ha ha!"


"What is so much fun?"


"It's amazing! I can see why Carthage and Withered Miller rave about it!"


The sergeant seemed to have fun.


"This past life is really wonderful. full of talent. It is worthwhile to skip the turn of Withered Miller."


"Are you scratching?"


"Yeah. I wanted to meet you, so I took a little shortcut. But rest assured! I will be more helpful than Wither Miller to deal with the imminent danger."


"Is it dangerous?"


Hyunjun asked. Although he lived in poverty at the bottom of the hunter society, he could be proud that he did not do anything that would bring a big grudge against anyone.


However, his thoughts were different.


"Someone is going to take your life in the near future. It's good to bet."


Hearing a cold laugh, the sergeant finished his speech.


"surely… … ."


"I really like the saying that it catches people."


"It is said that I am the only survivor of the dungeon, but I can't believe that alone… … ."


"Enough to kill. Of course, you'll want to have a conversation at first. But it won't be polite. I can guess. It's good to bet."


The sage was convinced. He was an expert in the filthy world of assassinations and kidnappings, which deserves the nickname "the shadow behind it." I knew their psychology very well.


"When she announced her breakup with you, she clearly said that the boyfriend she is dating is an A-class hunter. A-class Hunters have a high position in the Bronze Tier Guild. It must have something to do with the guild leader or the executive director. Hyeonjun Kang, I think you would know better what happens when the executive branch moves."


executive.


Even in the guild, it was a department that took charge of dirty and secret work.


Not only did it leave no evidence thoroughly, but it was also an area that the state could not easily touch because it was often associated with several high-ranking people.


"Will the executive branch move to deal with me?"


"Anger paralyzes reason. And A-class hunters have the power. But rest assured, I will make you strong. To survive a life-threatening threat."


The sergeant walked into the darkness.


"There is plenty of time."


Suddenly, he had a dagger in both hands.


"You'd better pick up a dagger."


Hyunjun pulled out the dagger that was stuck in front of him.


"You don't have a shield?"


Thanks to Carthage, having a shield gave me confidence.


"shield? Did you say shield now?"


Hasasin smiled with a funny expression.


"Assassins aren't friendly enough to surprise them when they're in their best armor. It's the assassins who always come to your heart when you're not prepared."


"Okay."


Hyunjun nodded in agreement. He raised his dagger and had his own fighting stance.


"Sigh… … It's inefficient to hold a dagger like that. I start off my own way."


The sergeant shook his head and approached him again.


"This is how you hold a dagger."


"It's different from Carthage."


"right? I am kind."


With an answer, the sergeant corrected Hyun-jun's posture.


"Actually, there is a reason why Carthage did not teach the basic moves properly."


"Is it because it's the fastest in practice?"


"Of course there is, but once the protection begins, some of our memories will be passed on and remain with you, Hyunjun Kang. So there is no need to teach the basic moves."


"Then there is no need for this kind of training, is there?"


Hyunjun asked a sharp question. To be honest, being pierced through a spear thousands of times over hundreds was a terrible experience. I wanted to avoid it if possible.


"This is necessary. To sing a blessing, we need to raise the level of sympathy with our past lives. It may seem like a meaningless practice, but there is no other way to increase the synchronization rate as well as this. Come on, try again."


At the commander's words, Hyeonjun regained his fighting stance.


"It's a lot better. Then we will start the first class."


His body melted into the darkness.


"I am going to attack you from now on. There is no need to counterattack or block. If you just 'detect' before a knife goes into your heart, that'll be the end of the class."


Hyeonjun let out a sigh at the words of the sergeant. How many times will the knife be stabbed in the heart this time? … I am already looking forward to it.

"Hyejin hasn't contacted me… … ."


Hyejin's new boyfriend, Echo Guild's A-class hunter Jeongseongmin, muttered to herself, unable to take her eyes off her smartphone.


There was still time left after the dungeon raid was over, but there was no contact. I called first an hour ago, but her smartphone was off.


Most of the electronic devices in the dungeon did not work properly, so it was not an incomprehensible situation.


I was just worried because the attack time seemed to be getting longer.


"Hyungseok."


He called out the name of the Hunter who was sitting at the desk across from him. Hyungseok shook his head.


"Yes, tell me."


"Can you find out if there is a hunter who came alive in the dungeon that Hyejin is attacking?"


"It's not difficult. I'm going to contact my friend at the Dungeon Administration right now."


"Thanks."


Five minutes later, Hyeongseok, who had left the office for a while to make a phone call, returned with a serious expression.


"A brother I know at the management office said that, but there is one living patient."


"One living patient… … ? Are you not a loser?"


"Yes, I used the expression 'live patient'."


Sungmin's voice trembled. As an A-class hunter, there was no way he could not know the difference between a survivor and a loser.


And if Hyejin had been revived, there would have been no contact.


"Hyungseok. Go with the executives and bring that bastard alive here quietly."


"Yes sir."


The nameplate on Seongmin's desk had the title of 'Executive Director' written on it.


* * *


The gaze staring into the darkness died coldly. I couldn't even remember how many times a dagger had already been stabbed in my heart.


However, it was still not easy to detect the sergeant's surprise.


"Cuckoo!"


Again! I didn't notice it this time, and I had to feel the unpleasant touch of the blade that penetrated deep into my heart once again.


"This time, it's unsuccessful."


He said in a voice of regret, but Hyun-jun saw hope.


A little while ago, before the start of the surprise, I could feel the faint life flowing out of me.


When the next turn came, he seemed to know for sure.


"I will go back."


As soon as the wounds were regenerated, the god of death disappeared into the darkness. Hyun-jun also raised his dagger and took a fighting stance. I focused my mind on all the senses.


"Cuckoo, Cuckoo!"


Again, a dagger was stabbed in the heart. But it was different from before.


A satisfied smile spread across the lips of the sergeant who drew out a sharp dagger.


"Passed."


Unlike before, he noticed his sneak attack at the last minute just before the dagger of the sergeant pierced his heart.


"By the way, how did you know what I noticed?"


"The movement of the muscles is different."


Hashirane replied. It didn't seem like an absurd statement, so Hyun-jun was convinced.


"The first training is over. You can go back now."


"Can I ask you one question before we go?"


I suddenly had a question. The sage nodded willingly and opened his mouth.


"of course. Ask a question."


"Are you no longer able to meet Carthage?"


The gates of Carthage disappeared and the gates of the messengers were created. I think I still have a lot to learn, but I thought it was already over.


"It is not. When the time is right, he will come to you again. You still have a lot to learn."
