Kill The Hero – Chapter 118 – Graduating from 2 Floors (4)
A man appeared in front of a close school in Gangneung City, Gangwon-do, where the huge footsteps of monsters could still be seen on the weed covered playground.
The man’s body was large enough to be considered a monster and his appearance was more than harsh enough to match the word ‘monster’.
If someone who didn’t know him saw him, they might very well run away while thinking that a monster had escaped from a dungeon.
“They came out.”
Fortunately those nearby were colleagues and acquaintances who were used to his appearance.
Oh Se-chan’s men began to approach him in order to welcome him back.
But Lee Jin-ah had an odd response to those who were approaching.
Lee Jin-ah bent over and began vomiting everything that he had in his stomach.
The footsteps of Oh Se-chan’s men who had been hurrying over to greet him immediately came to a stop.
‘I don’t believe it! Lee Jin-ah is vomiting?’
‘This is a serious problem. We need to contact the boss right away!’
It was incredibly shocking for none other than Lee Jin-ah to vomit what he had eaten, no matter what it was and no matter how much it was.
At least for those who knew Lee Jin-ah, this was in fact a very urgent matter.
One of the subordinates immediately began contacting Oh Se-chan.
It was at that moment.
“Mr. Kim Woo-jin!”
Following Lee Jin-ah’s appearance, Kim Woo-jin also appeared.
After he looked around his surroundings for a bit, Kim Woo-jin immediately turned to look at Lee Jin-ah who was collapsed on the ground.
Lee Jin-ah, who finally stopped puking, avoided his gaze.
Kim Woo-jin smiled and walked away slowly.
His short walk led him to the subordinate who had contacted Oh Se-chan.
Kim Woo-jin stretched his hand toward him.
“I will no hand it to Mr. Kim Woo-jin.”
As soon as Kim Woo-jin put the phone to his ear, he heard Oh Se-chan’s voice.
-What’s going on? Lee Jin-ah is vomiting? What happened in the dungeon?
Oh Se-chan asked a flurry of questions, his tone filled with urgency.
-Huh? If something gets into his stomach he’d easily digest it, so why is he vomiting?
It was clear that Oh Se-chan was also shocked by the fact that Lee Jin-ah was vomiting something that he’d eaten.
“He’s just overworked, there is no problem.”
“I pushed him a little harder than usual in order to properly prepare for our graduation from 2 Floor dungeons.”
It was then.
“Fuck, that was a bit hard?! I almost died!”
Hearing what Kim Woo-jin was saying on the call, Lee Jin-ah couldn’t help but shout in protest.
-Was that Lee Jin-ah’s voice? What’s he saying?
Unaware of the circumstances, Oh Se-chan couldn’t help but have some doubts.
Meanwhile Lee Jin-ah shouted again.
“The fucking Skeleton Knight!”
-The Skeleton Knight? The new skill? Then what’s the problem?
Kim Woo-jin smiled lightly at the remark.
“My new skill was a bit stronger than I expected. So I had a little problem controlling the power.”
“You say it’s a small problem, I almost got killed by that Skeleton Knight! Damn, if it was two monsters like that…”
Lee Jin-ah who had just been shouting at Kim Woo-jin, suddenly shivered.
-…I don’t fully know what’s going on, but it doesn’t seem like it’s a big deal anyway.
“It’s just some research and data collection. Has anything special happened while we were gone?”
-Something special did happen. A big event has appeared.
Kim Woo-jin was not surprised by Oh Se-chan’s words.
-An A+ rank 3 Floor Dungeon has appeared in Yeouido
He had expected that there would be a big event after all.
“Can I participate?”
The important thing was whether he could take part in the event or not.
Oh Se-chan gave him a simple reply.
-Honestly, there was nothing that I could do. 3 Floors and completely different from the 1 Floors and 2 Floors. Maybe you understand.
From Kim Woo-jin’s perspective, this was already something that he had expected.
It is impossible for just anyone to participate in an A+ 3 Floor Dungeon.
Especially the first attack.
The competition for the bidding on the first attack is always the most fierce.
This could be seen from the fact that the dungeons that Kim Woo-jin or Isaac Ivanov had access to were those that had been failed numerous times or that contained monsters that were difficult to defeat.
‘There is time until the attack, so we can find a way to enter.’
Even so Kim Woo-jin didn’t intend to give up.
‘Because this dungeon was only attacked once.’
In his memory, there was no such thing as a second try for this dungeon.
‘I need to get Hercules’ Ring this time somehow.’
It was then.
-So I couldn’t do anything, but a grateful person sent you a gift.
He could hear the excitement in Oh Se-chan’s voice.
-A big guy called the Messiah Guild sent a letter to Isaac Ivanov.
Kim Woo-jin couldn’t help but smile at those words.
No more explanation was needed.
“It was worth it to help the Messiah Guild.”
It wasn’t hard to guess that the Messiah Guild wanted to partner with Isaac Ivanov to clear the dungeon.
-So you’re gonna go in? It’s a great opportunity but in the end it’s still a 3 Floor dungeon. It’s also level 80 and below. Your current level is…
“This time, it reached level 60.”
-Yeah, so it will be difficult for you at level 60. It’s like a level 10 player going into a level 30 and below dungeon. Most of all, the Messiah Guild invited you into the dungeon not to help you, but to take advantage of you. So it will be much more dangerous. It’ll be hard to interfere
“No. I’ll be cautious till the end.”
Kim Woo-jin took Oh Se-chan’s warnings seriously.
As he’d said before, no matter how amazing a treasure was, it was absolutely useless if he didn’t have the power to use it.
For this reason, Kim Woo-jin once again compared his current abilities to the abilities of the players he was likely to face in the dungeon.
‘It won’t be easy.’
Through this dungeon, he’d learned that the strength of the skeleton knight was much higher than he had anticipated.
But that alone was not enough assurance.
‘If I want to get what I want from a stage which has the best performers from each guild, then I’ll need to get Plus Alpha.’
The opponents this time might be more powerful than Kim Woo-jin expected.
-What was the reward for level 60? You got a catalogue didn’t you?
When Oh Se-chan asked this question, it caused Kim Woo-jin to realise that his mind had been so preoccupied that he’d completely forgotten about the reward for his level up.
At his command, the catalogue awarded by his halo for reaching level 60 appeared before his eyes.
It was giving off a golden glow.
[A+ rank 3 Floor Dungeon appears!]
[The location is Yeouido Park!]
[The title of the dungeon is Golden Lion!]
The news of the appearance of an A+ 3 Floor Dungeon in Korea quickly spread out of the country to the rest of the world.
[The Maximum number of entries is 250! The Admission level limit is 75!]
[The Messiah Guild has made a Declaration!]
[The Phoenix Guild has made a Declaration!]
Soon the guilds in Korea began expressing their strong will to attack and clear the dungeon.
Other than that, countless news seemed to be pouring in.
-I heard a piece of news saying that the Korean Government would allow the top 5 guilds to participate in the attack, is that true?
ㄴNo, why are they giving it to foreigners when it’s in Korea?
ㄴDid the government get paid again?
ㄴYou should look at the situation realistically. It has space for 250 people, 250! Could you find 250 players in Korea who could clear an A+ 3 Floor Dungeon?
ㄴThat’s right. It might be better for us to open our doors than force it and fail. Then we’ll still benefit from it late. There is no loss.
ㄴThen all those famous guys will gather together, right?
From news regarding the top 5 guilds discussing with the government regarding the attack, to news about which famous players would be participating in the attack.
But the most intense news of all was.
-Breaking News! Isaac Ivanov is participating!
ㄴIs this real?
Except the news that he would be participating in the attack on the Golden Lion Dungeon, there was practically no other news about Isaac Ivanov.
Moreover, his participation wasn’t simply participation.
[The Messiah Guild were the ones who sent Isaac Ivanov a letter!]
[The one who requested his participation was not Isaac Ivanov, but the Messiah Guild!]
It was revealed that it was the Messiah Guild who had asked Isaac Ivanov to participate in the dungeon.
It was the first time that the Messiah Guild had asked for another player’s help in a dungeon that they had never attempted before.
[Isaac Ivanov’s 3 Floor dungeon debut!]
[Is the Messiah Guild trying to raise Isaac Ivanov to be another Savior?]
Moreover, the fact that this would be the first time that Isaac Ivanov had ever participated in a 3 Floor dungeon proved that the Messiah Guild held him in higher regard than any other player.
This was terribly surprising to all of those who knew the Messiah Guild because the Messiah Guild was known for its cold treatment to any player who was not a member of their guild.
When Park Yong-wan heard the news, he was understandably upset.
‘How much did I spend on him?’
He couldn’t feel good when the world was filled with news about Isaac Ivanov and the Messiah Guild when he was the one who had spent a lot of money to get Isaac Ivanov’s name.
‘Are the Messiah Guild bastards doing this because they know I’m reaching out to Isaac Ivanov?”
Park Yong-wan could not help but wonder if the Messiah Guild was only acting this way to foil his plans.
‘No way…I don’t think so.’
Of course, Park Yong-wan knew that his doubts were not completely impossible.
‘It’s just that the timing isn’t right. I don’t think that the Messiah Guild is trying to kill me yet. And only Isaac Ivanov and I know of our deal.’
Park Yong-wan felt that it was all a coincidence.
‘Was Isaac Ivanov the one who spread the information himself?’
