Kill The Hero – Chapter 189 – Reason to Hide (5)
It was the 21st day since Isaac Ivanov had been trapped in the Hellhound dungeon, and the world had already gotten over what happened.
-There’s probably not much time left.
-I wonder if we’ll be able to recover their remains…
Most people had already come to accept Isaac Ivanov’s death.
Of course, not everyone thought that way.
In particular, Oh Se-chan and his subordinates thought differently.
“Still no news?”
However, although they were not convinced of Isaac Ivanov’s imminent demise, they still felt anxious.
“Yes sir, nothing yet.”
“Do you think something happened?”
It wasn’t that they were beginning to lose faith.
After all, they wouldn’t have let the two of them enter the dungeon in the first place if they didn’t believe in them.
“I don’t know.”
But wasn’t it common for strange situations to occur during dungeon attacks?
In face of this situation, even Oh Se-chan began to feel a little nervous.
“Ah, I don’t know. Let’s eat something first. We hadn’t had chinese in a long time, have we? How about Tangsuyuk?”
His subordinates could tell that he was changing the subject to food to hide his nervousness.
‘He looks really anxious.’
‘It’s not even Christmas and he’s mentioning Tangsuyuk, should we take him to a hospital?”
Oh Se-chan was very nervous.
As Oh Se-chan began thinking about what dishes he wanted to order, a subordinate suddenly shouted.
At those words, Oh Se-chan shot to his feet and shouted, his excitement almost exploding from his body.
“They’re finally out! That’s right! I had complete faith in them! I knew they would beat it! They are amazing guys after all! Ah, I’m getting the sudden urge to kiss them…”
“Park Yong-wan’s team has cleared the 6 Floor dungeon.”
When the subordinate continued speaking, Oh Se-chan shut his mouth and turned to look at them.
When he saw the eerie glint in Oh Se-chan’s eyes, the subordinate couldn’t help but ask while having a ‘Did I do something wrong?’ expression on their face.
“I-, is there a problem?”
“You’re asking that now? We don’t care about Park Yong-wan, you don’t have to announce it so readily when he leaves the dungeon.”
In response to Oh Se-chan’s cold words, the subordinate could only nod dumbly without saying anything.
It was then.
Another subordinate entered the room and shouted in the same manner as the previous subordinate.
“Didn’t someone already come to announce that that shit came out?”
Oh Se-chan simply gestured with his chin toward the subordinate who had tilted their head in confusion.
“No, I was just talking to myself. So, who came out?”
“Kim Woo-jin is out!”
At that moment, the expression on Oh Se-chan’s face changed.
“They’re finally out! That’s right! I had complete faith in them! Absolutely! If I were there… Ah, really.”
However, the excitement could not burst out at this time because he had already expended it previously.
So Oh Se-chan gave up being excited and asked instead.
“So what’s the situation on Isaac Ivanov’s side?”
“Kim Woo-jin’s right arm was cut off, and as for Lee Jin-ah, he’s currently in a coma. They have already begun treatment.”
It was a very disturbing situation.
However, neither Oh Se-chan nor his subordinates appeared to be surprised by this information.
Instead, Oh Se-chan spoke in a calm tone.
“So Lee Jin-ah is the one pretending to be in a coma this time?”
“I think so.”
This was because they had already agreed to such a result beforehand.
“Okay, then let’s move on to the next step.”
After being briefed on the situation, Oh Se-chan turned to a subordinate standing beside him.
“Prepare the press conference.”
Then he turned to another subordination.
“Arrange a protection detail for Kim Woo-jin. I’m sure the Sword Saint will try something funny. Don’t forget to backtrace it too.”
Oh Se-chan then pointed to a third subordinate.
Seeing this, the subordinate nodded, showing that he was ready to receive the orders.
Oh Se-chan told him.
“Tell Park Yong-wan that Kim Woo-jin is still alive.”
However, the orders that Oh Se-chan gave him caught the subordinate by surprise.
“Tell him that he faked his death because of the threat of terrorism. He had already been targeted twice, so such a justification would be considered acceptable.”
A smile spread across Oh Se-chan’s lips.
“Of course, don’t forget to charge for the cost involved in the process. Ah, he’ll need to continue to hide in the future, so include the cost for that as well. It’s not easy to hide from the Japanese government for so long, is it?”
A very, very large smile.
After the terrorist incident against Isaac Ivanov, the Japanese government took control of the situation and strengthened the security around the dungeon gate.
This was because the dungeon gate to the Hellhound Dungeon had become a symbolic place as a result of the terrorist incident, and there was a chance that similar activities might occur again.
“Still no news today? They’re really lasting a long time.”
“They might be hiding in the dungeon because they don’t want to die.”
“Maybe, but if you think about it, as soon as the dungeon attack is over, the Japanese government will definitely face criticisms again.”
“Damn, they might withhold the information.”
This also meant that the news reporters gathered would only be able to acquire information after the Japanese government released a statement, which made them incredibly displeased.
Of course, not everyone was complaining.
Some still showed the spirit of a reporter.
“You don’t have to stay in that position.”
Some people had managed to find loopholes through which to monitor the dungeon gate despite the strict control.
“No way, scoops only come to those who are prepared.”
This was the case for two foreign reporters who were sitting in ways that allowed them to keep watch on the dungeon gate.
Their bodies, which were forced to maintain a strange position for a long time, cried in pain.
Nevertheless, none of this was visible on their faces.
Instead, their eyes shined brightly as though they truly expected to catch a scoop.
“Huh? I think something is happening.”
Another reporter approached the reporter who’d said this, looking at them as they stared at the dungeon gate through their camera.
“Really? What’s going on?”
However, the reporter didn’t respond to them and kept looking through the camera as though they had been frozen in time.
“What is it? Did Isaac come out of the dungeon?”
Of course, he was just making a joke.
These few reporters were sure that Isaac Ivanov would not be able to return alive.
However, the reporter with the camera did not laugh at the joke.
Instead, when he heard the word ‘Isaac’, he shouted out subconsciously.
“Isaac came back alive!”
