Kill The Hero – Chapter 115 – Graduating from 2 Floors (1)
The most powerful thing about the Messiah Guild was that it received endless faith and support from the public.
Through this never ending support, the Messiah Guild steadily grew to become something that other guilds could not hope to compare to.
Of course, like the Messiah Guild there were other guilds who wanted to benefit from playing the role of savior.
No, in fact all guilds were forced to do so to some extent because of the Messiah Guild.
The same was true for the Phoenix Guild.
They also spent much more than they initially expected on marketing to make it seem like they were also working toward the benefit of the world.
However the results were not good.
Just as a politician who was known for all kinds of corruption could not change his image simply by engaging in a few volunteering activities, it was impossible for the Phoenix Guild to become like the Messiah Guild simply through marketing techniques after they had already built up a bad image.
It was for this reason that Park Yong-wan easily accepted Kim Woo-jin’s proposal.
If the image they had accumulated so far was the problem then maybe getting a new face was the best solution.
Park Yong-wan immediately began working on the idea.
[The Phoenix Guild promises its full support to Isaac Ivanov!]
[Will the Phoenix Guild become Isaac Ivanov’s supporter?]
[Park Yong-wan, ‘Isaac Ivanov is a world treasure, it’s natural to want to help him.’]
He intended to borrow Isaac Ivanov’s fame as Kim Woo-jin had suggested.
“Sir, Isaac Ivanov’s side has contacted us.”
Isaac Ivanov responded immediately to Park Yong-wan’s proposal.
“They said he appreciates it deeply.”
Isaac Ivanov had directly refused Park Yong-wan’s support in a single stroke. They had failed even before making the first step.
However as he listened to his secretary’s words, Park Yong-wan did not show any disappointment or anger on his face.
“I’m glad he’s not some guy who simply accepts anything that’s given to him.”
Rather he welcomed it as if it was a response he had expected from the start.
“And he’s good for not making a fuss out of it.”
Isaac Ivanov’s move was a clear indication that his name was indeed quite valuable.
Therefore, Park Yong-wan began making more preparations.
“Then we’ll need to take out a gift he can’t refuse. Did you do the investigations?”
Even those with expensive tastes would have something that they drooled over.
“I received information that he is currently trying to get a skill called Skeleton Knight.”
“It’s a Unique Level 50 class skill. Currently there is only one on the market.”
And thus the bait was spotted by the fish.
Park Yong-wan gave a bright smile as he heard this and seemed quite satisfied.
“That’s good to hear. How much is it?”
“The seller is asking for asylum, not money. If we go into more detail…”
“Is it possible or not?”
“Then accept it.”
“But it’s likely to cost more than we expected, in more ways than we expected.”
“I don’t care.”
There was no hesitation at all in Park Yong-wan’s voice.
“We must accept it.”
He expressed his desires to obtain the skill at all costs.
No, Park Yong-wan intended to do more than just that.
“And the item on my list, prepare them.”
“If it’s that item…”
“Osiris’ Ring from the 6 Floor dungeon.”
“You are going to give him that too?”
Park Yong-wan looked at his secretary who was staring at him with wide eyes.
“It’s best to protect a portion, than to lose everything.”
“Hyung, this is…”
“Look at this Jin-ah.”
A surprised Lee Jin-ah was looking at the thing that Oh Se-chan was pointing at with his hand.
“How is it?”
What Oh Se-chan was pointing at was what used to be an empty office about 20 pyung large which was now completely filled with packages of choco pies and ramen.
The packages were in all different sizes that were wrapped as if they were gifts.
In fact, they were actually gifts.
Gifts from the Korean public to Isaac Ivanov.
“This means the end of this year’s food and snack expenses. I think we can even take out the coffee expenses if we sell the boxes for waste paper.”
For Oh Se-chan, this was a divine gift.
Lee Jin-ah couldn’t help but ask in surprise.
“So you’re only gonna have ramen for meals and choco pies as snacks?”
“Of course. What else should I eat after getting all of this free food?”
If his subordinates heard that, they would have gotten dizzy immediately.
No, the expression of the subordinate who had been following the two was already frozen solid.
It wasn’t difficult to imagine how horrible it would be to eat three meals of ramen every day with only choco pies for snacks.
‘Well, that’s the boss.’
What was even worse was that Oh Se-chan was a human being who could really do such a thing.
‘Unless Jin-ah says something…’
Because of this, the subordinate sincerely wished that Lee Jin-ah would be able to convince Oh Se-chan to give up this unreasonable dream.
As if the prayers of the subordinate were answered, Lee Jin-ah looked at Oh Se-chan with a hard look on his face.
“Does it make sense for a person to only eat ramen for three meals a day and choco pies for snacks?”
“No, it’s common sense that you’d get tired of eating the same thing isn’t it?”
Lee Jin-ah’s words made the subordinate’s expression brighten.
“You’d need something like Chapagetti(Jjapaghetti) or instant rice to give the meals more variety.”
“Is that so? I think the free ramen wouldn’t be a problem.”
“I once tried to have ramen for three meals a day, but after a month I got a bit sick of it.”
“What was it like during that month?”
“It wasn’t bad.”
However Lee Jin-ah’s next words allowed the subordinate to remember something.
Lee Jin-ah was also not someone you would call normal.
“Ah, what happened with that thing?”
“He told Park Yong-wan what happened right?”
At that time the topic of the conversation switched to Park Yong-wan.
“So why are they so quiet?”
After Park Yong-wan returned to the real world, Kim Woo-jin had explained the entire incident to him.
The Frontier Guild painted a big picture for Park Yong-wan to eat him, and he told him that some of his men had been killed already by the Frontier Guild.
And if Park Yong-wan wasn’t a fool, then he had already done his own investigations and realised that what Kim Woo-jin told him was true.
However Park Yong-wan’s behavior had not changed since then.
Rather than exploding, he was acting as if he never heard the news in the first place.
“It’s strange that that dirty guy is so quiet.”
“No, that’s what Park Yong-wan is like.”
“His own interests are the priority. His subordinates suffered so of course he is upset about it, but conversely he can use that as a way to get back something from the Frontier Guild. He’s probably tapping on a calculator right now. I wonder how much he will try to rip the Frontier Guild off by using this.”
“Wouldn’t they tell him how his guards were killed?”
As he heard that Oh Se-chan laughed briefly.
‘From Naomi Spell’s position and what has happened so far, she will try to persuade Park Yong-wan with her abilities.’
The most difficult thing to overcome in the plan was Naomi Spell.
‘If she can’t, she’ll die.’
If Park Yong-wan decided to contact the Frontier Guild directly, they would then blame Naomi Spell, and if the Messiah Guild believed that it would lead to trouble, they would not hesitate to eliminate her.
So the moment Park Yong-wan shows the room for negotiation, she will go all out to persuade him.
She would have to use all the cards she had.
‘And she’d make similar approaches to Kim Woo-jin.’
At the same time, she would try to send a gift of reconciliation to Kim Woo-jin who had caused the incident.
At this moment, to connect to Sam Oliver, she could only go through Kim Woo-jin.
‘What an amazing guy.’
Oh Se-chan could not help his admiration.
“Sir, the skill page was traded.”
At the same time, another subordinate told him some breaking news and a smile stretched across his face.
“He’s a really amazing guy.”
