KH Chapter 42
Kill the Hero Chapter 42
TL: Uncle Choi
Messiah Guild has always focused on one purpose.
That they will finish the game and save the world.
The nobility in their purpose was undeniable, at least for humans.
Naturally, cheering and applause poured out toward the Messiah Guild who wanted to achieve such a goal.
‘But the Messiah guild is not a kind guild.’
However, it wasn’t enough for them to just be a role model and to get parents to teach their child to be like them.
‘Since if it really was a nice guild, they wouldn’t have had someone like me.’
The existence of a hunting dog, Kim Woo-jin, was enough evidence.
He could be the more brutal, violent, and cruel than any other player if it meant achieving his goal.
So Messiah Guild accepted him and saw him as the most reliable ally, a person that they could learn from.
That was the real Messiah Guild.
People who would do anything to achieve the “noble” purposes they sought.
‘Nevertheless, there should be more people like me in there. The only thing is that I don’t know who it is.’
Of course, there were many people in the Messiah Guild like Kim Woo-jin.
There were plenty of hunting dogs that charged straight in when an order was given; without looking back, without asking questions.
Kim Woo-jin brought Park Yong-wan before these people.
‘The person who played the role of a bridge in helping Park Yong-wan sell his country to Japan was Hayashi Konsuke. The time when Hayashi Konsuke ruled the Asian black market with the help of Johann Georg. In other words, there was no contact between Park Yong-wan and the Yamato Federation at this point in time where Hayashi Konsuke was not well known. As evidence, Park Yong-wan is investing in me to be used as bait.’
In a situation where Park Yong-wan is believed to be an enemy.
How will the Messiah Guild react in front of such an enemy?
The answer was obvious.
“Park Yong-wan is their target from now on.’
They will never let go of someone who’s perceived as an enemy.
But no matter how massive the Messiah Guild is. I think it will be hard to catch Park Yong-wan. ‘Of course, that won’t be able to remove Park Yong-wan easily even if they go beyond my expectations.’
Unlike Kim Woo-jin, Park Yong-wan was not a fish that could be caught whenever they wanted to.
Everything would still remain the same even if a lot of time passes.
Park Yong-wan had enough skills to fend off other players.
‘Since they kept failing until I caught him.’
Before Kim Woo-jin stepped up to catch him, they failed every time. It proved that Park Yong-wan was not an easy person to catch.
Above all, Park Yong-wan was a big enough player who could even sell his country for his own interests.
He couldn’t be beaten easily by just anyone.
‘Furthermore, if the Messiah Guild moves forward in this situation, it reveals that he is already in contact with the Skull Guild.’
Whatever happens would be a good opportunity for Kim Woo-jin to shake the Messiah guild.
‘Let’s wait and see.’
Even if it takes a little time, waves will traverse and eventually crash.
Of course, Kim Woo-jin had to prepare for the situation.
He had to acquire enough strength to withstand the storm.
‘I need to start interacting Oh Se-chan seriously.’
Kim Woo-jin was going to try and narrow the gap between him and Oh Se-chan.
That intent was the same for Oh Se-chan.
When Kim Woo-jin got in his car, he saw a present from Oh Se-chan.
A bottle of champagne and a flip phone.
When he dialed the number saved on the flip phone, the first thing that Oh Se-chan brought up was the champagne he sent to Kim Woo-jin as a gift.
Kim Woo-jin smiled and held back a chuckle.
He wasn’t holding back his laughter because Oh Se-chan’s praise for his champagne gift.
“Thank you for responding to my sudden call this time.”
It was because of the previous call Kim Woo-jin had with Oh Se-chan.
The person who Kim Woo-jin called in front of the bug in order to wave Park Yong-wan was none other than Oh Se-chan.
To be exact, the flip phone he used before was in fact given to Kim Woo-jin for communication by Oh Se-chan.
For Kim Woo-jin, it was an obvious choice.
Since nothing was better than using the flip phone that Oh Se-chan gave him to avoid being traced.
Of course, Oh Se-chan immediately understood Kim Woo-jin’s intentions.
“I’d like to get a loan. I have some items I need to buy.”
Kim Woo-jin immediately gave away the main purpose for calling him.
Oh Se-chan also took it seriously.
Surprisingly, Oh Se-chan started to consider loaning.
“Didn’t I prove my skills?”
That was a valid statement.
Since the process of clearing a dungeon was far more important than the result.
Above all, Kim Woo-jin’s performance was only in a 2 floor dungeons.
Of course, his clearing process was unrivaled.
However, in a world where there are players who are clearing the dungeon that have 5 or 6 floors, it wasn’t anything impressive.
‘He does have a point.’
Kim Woo-jin acknowledged it.
He was late in becoming a player, even though was more talented than they were.
Such excuses were useless.
What mattered in a race was how far ahead one was.
Nonetheless, if he wanted to be treated the way he wanted, he had to show an overwhelming difference that would make Oh Se-chan think that he could change the state of the game.
‘But I can’t show him what I can do for nothing.’
Kim Woo-jin, however, had no intention of showing his true ability without any benefits for himself.
No, until now, Kim Woo-jin has never shown his true ability to anyone.
For he understood how important it was to conceal one’s ability.
And Oh Se-chan understood that as well.
“If I show you what I can do, what will you offer me in exchange?”
So Kim Woo-jin suggested a give and take situation.
And Oh Se-chan accepted his offer.
Oh Se-chan was overflowing with confidence.
“I need the gastric juice of a golden dragon.”
Upon hearing the name of such a monster, Oh Se-chan did not even show a hint of hesitation.
It was very unexpected.
‘Is he saying that he has a connection with the Dragon Hunter?’
The fact that it was so easy for him to get something from the golden dragon that the Dragon Hunter had hunted recently was proof that Oh Se-chan’s connections were not ordinary.
‘No wonder the Messiah Guild killed him.’
A person that they absolutely had to kill If they couldn’t make him their ally.
‘And to assassinate someone like Oh Se-chan… the Messiah Guild must have more power than I expected.’
On the other hand, he was appalled by the hidden power of the Messiah Guild that was hidden away from him and the world.
Anyway, that was the end of the deal.
However, Oh Se-chan did not stop talking.
Kim Woo-jin replied while hiding his nervousness.
Oh Se-chan said to him.
The day after his return from the dungeon, Kim Woo-jin immediately faced Park Yong-wan.
Meeting him, Kim Woo-jin told him everything he had experienced in the dungeon.
“So you’re saying they fought each other and died?”
Of course, it wasn’t thetruth.
“There was an amazing expert on the other side. If it wasn’t for the blood sucking and blood poisoning skills, it would have been our side that was completely wiped out.”
There was only one plausible scenario.
In Park Yong-wan’s position, it was a case where he couldn’t find the truth through the means available to him. Park Yong-wan also knew this fact.
Jung Hoon-young’s party was the real thing.
‘To get rid of strong targets, the Skull Guild must have sent skilled experts of their own… In the end, they have failed to catch the bait once again.’
Therefore, instead of wondering what had happened, Park Yong-wan thought of what he should do next.
The agony did not last long.
‘The Skull Guild’s gonna be quiet for a while. I should take a break while they are calm. I have to go to a dungeon soon anyway… The next time to fish should be in a month or so at the earliest.’
Kim Woo-jin was a great bait and Park Yong-wan only had to take good care of him and throw him over and over again when the time was right.
Following this comment, Park Yong-wan budged his finger towards the secretary behind him.
“The deposit is complete.”
“You hear that? It’s the promised reward.”
Kim Woo-jin bowed his head.
“Okay, then get out.”
Like that the conversation was over.
Park Yong-wan made a gesture telling Kim Woo-jin to get out of his office and he left the office without speaking.
After leaving his office he didn’t look back.
The dice was already thrown, and the fights from now on were out of Kim Woo-jin’s league.
Of course, the Skull Guild will target Park Yong-wan, not Kim Woo-jin, and launch aggressive attacks on him from this point on.
The number of people who will want to bite off Park Yong-wan’s arms and legs will only increase.
Of course, Park Yong-wan will be bitten without even knowing why.
‘I can’t wait to see Park Yong-wan’s face the next time we meet.’
When Kim Woo-jin is called again after such a storm, he won’t be able to see any peace in Park Yong-wan’s expression.
I bet he will greet Kim Woo-jin with a face that’s about to tear the Skull Guild into pieces.
Then, a text message arrived on Kim Woo-jin’s smartphone.
It was a text message from Oh Se-chan. Kim Woo-jin, who checked the text, left the guild headquarters immediately.
“Phoenix Guild Wake up!”
“Wake up, wake up!”
Kim Woo-jin went to Samseong Station, leaving behind the cries of protesters who were always criticizing the Phoenix Guild.
Kim Woo-jin’s neared the area where the safes were kept at the station.
But Kim Woo-jin ignored it and headed straight to the bathroom.
Then he went into the 2nd compartment in the bathroom.
Kim Woo-jin closed the door after going in and pushed his hand into the bathroom case.
And when Kim Woo-jin took out his hand from the case, there was a finely folded piece of paper between Kim Woo-jin’s index finger and his thumb.
Kim Woo-jin opened the piece of paper in his hand.
Kim Woo-jin’s eyes narrowed.
‘Difficulty is B-, but if the maximum number of people that can enter is 30… .’
Although the difficulty rating of the dungeon mattered a lot, the difficulty of a dungeon also heavily depended on the maximum number of people that could enter.
Compared to the Albino Lizard Dungeon that Kim Woo-jin cleared before, it was a dungeon that was more than twice as dangerous when attacking alone.
‘That’s about right.’
Obviously, Kim Woo-jin wasn’t scared.
Furthermore, Kim Woo-jin was not alone in this dungeon.
An examiner would come as well to observe his skills.
The examiner’s name was also written below the note.
Kim Woo-jin’s face hardened as soon as he saw the name.
‘Don’t tell me it’s the “King of Undead” Lee Jin-ah?’
