Kill The Hero – Chapter 48
In a dull office where the only light was provided by two fixtures on the ceiling, two men sat at a table, facing each other. One of them was very large and muscular, with a shiny bald head, the other was much smaller and looked at the man across from him with a slightly ugly expression. The sight was very strange and it wouldn’t seem out of place if guns or drugs were added to the scene.
Suddenly the bald man pulled a package out of his pocket. In a situation like this, what one would expect would be maybe a bar of gold or drugs or something of the sort, but when the man unwrapped the package, what was revealed instead, was a bar of chocolate.
Thus the image became rather strange and the smaller man couldn’t help but ask,
“Are you really going to eat a chocolate bar now?”
Oh Se-chan looked at the large man across from him who was munching away at his chocolate bar.
“This is how a man should be.”
When he heard that response, a smile appeared on Oh Se-chan’s face.
“Yes, if you don’t eat like that, people will definitely think you’re a woman. When you go to the bathroom make sure to take out a chocolate bar and start eating otherwise people will think they entered the women’s bathroom instead.”
Lee Jin-ah ignored Oh Se-chan’s words and instead asked in a serious tone.
“Why’d you call me here?”
“An A+ ranked dungeon has been discovered.”
“If you’re telling me about it, that must mean that it’s at least 2 floors.”
“Yeah, it’s two floors, level limit is 35 and under and only 99 entries are available.”
As he listened to the report, Lee Jin-ah’s face gradually became worse, but he didn’t pick up the document that Oh Se-chan placed on the table in front of him because he didn’t think too much about it.
An A+ rank dungeon was only for those large and powerful guilds like the Messiah Guild or the Phoenix Guild. It was not something small guilds could usually touch.
“The dungeon boss is a Needle Snake.”
“Eh? A Needle Snake?”
However when he heard what the boss was, Lee Jin-ah reached forward and picked up the report in front of him.
“Hu-, Huh? Isn’t this supposed to be a dungeon report?”
“Oh sorry, ignore that, the report is on the back.”
“Ah, I see.”
After flipping the paper over, Lee Jin-ah saw the report.
[Needle Snake Hunt.]
- Floors: 2 Floors
- Difficulty: A+ Rank
- Maximum number of Entries: 99
- Requirements: Level 35 and under
- Challenge Conditions: Hunt the Needle Snake
- Reward: Skill Stone(C)
As he read the details of the dungeon, Lee Jin-ah couldn’t help but say in a nervous tone,
“Will there be anyone willing to do this? For players below level 35, a Needle Snake is almost certain death.”
“It truly is almost guaranteed death.”
The Needle Snake. A monster that became well known around the world two years ago when it first appeared. Showing up in Paris, France and then the United States, Britain and Japan one after another. However, there was no detailed information about it, and that was for one simple reason.
“Because it’s never been successfully killed before.”
No one had ever returned from a Needle Snake hunt. Because of this, the monster was given a nickname…
“…the Snake of Death.”
The Snake of Death, or the Snake Reaper. This name was given because of the large number of players that it killed.
“Hey, do you have to keep giving things stupid names?”
“It’s all the same, Death Snake, Snake Fucker, Snake Bitch, Fucking Bitch, they’re the same thing right? Anyway, I roughly understand the situation now.”
Lee Jin-Ah put the report and looked at Oh Se-chan, his expression becoming serious.
“Most guilds will probably give up their claim on this one, but you’re the one who wants to eat it up first, right?”
“And you’re looking to blend into the crowd or maybe wait for a foreign guild to challenge.”
“But to snatch it from them we’d have to be really good or really. strong.”
“I know that too.”
“Well let’s discuss the plan while we eat. I’ll take champagne with a large serving of tangsuyuk. Oh and please ask for a generous helping of dumplings too.”
Oh Se-chan shook his head at the sudden change.
“Where did this bullshit come from all of a sudden?”
“You have to invest a bit to hire a skilled person don’t you?”
“That’s true, but why are you the one eating?”
“Because I’m the best person for such a job.”
Oh Se-chan gave him a blank stare.
“No? Then who could it be? Dragon Slayer? Trinity? The Brain? Or the Messiah Lee Se-jun? But all of them are near level 200 so they wouldn’t be able to enter the dungeon.”
“There is Kim Woo-jin.”
When he heard the name, Lee Jin-ah made an ugly face.
“Damn it! I don’t wanna hunt with that bastard!”
“You should know! The guy is a heartless monster! I’ve never met anyone as crazy as he is. Humans usually have a consciousness, that guy, he considers your endurance before your skill. He needs to learn how to treat people right, first.”
Lee Jin-ah was very much against working with Kim Woo-jin.
“If you work with him, you would complete it more efficiently.”
Instead of arguing further, Oh Se-chan removed a recorder from his pocket and put it on the table after pressing the playback button.
‘…What I want in a party are people who won’t hold me back.’
Lee Jin-ah’s voice was heard from the recorder, the sound echoing in the now quiet room.
‘I don’t care about their personality. Whether they’re a punk or a bastard, I don’t care. Even the devil himself, as long as he can beat me. If there is someone like that, I will follow him like a loyal dog. Please find them for me. haha! There is no one stronger than me. Hahahaha!’
Lee Jin-ah’s face became uglier as he heard what he’d said.
“Umm, I’m a little thirsty…”
He picked up a cup of water from the table and took a big sip, but his expression became worse.
“Brother, why does this water taste weird? It smells like there’s medicine in it.”
“Probably because it’s tap water.”
“Why? Would you like some more?”
When Oh Se-chan said this, Lee Jin-ah didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
“Brother, big brother. Tap water…”
“It’s not important, don’t worry, you won’t die even if you drank some more.”
“It’s not important?”
“Yeah, the tap water is not important. What’s important is this dungeon hunt. you need to get it done the first time.”
Lee Jin-ah’s expression became serious again. As Oh Se-chan said, when hunting a Needle Snake, you had to succeed on your first try.
“Right, if the first attack fails, there won’t be a chance for a second. You have to succeed from the start.”
Lee Jin-ah knew how deadly the Needle Snake was.
“And that’s why you need Kim Woo-jin.”
“I can’t handle this, where is the food?”
“You still want to eat?”
When he heard that, Lee Jin-ah looked at Oh Se-chan.
“What do you mean by that?”
Oh Se-chan couldn’t help laughing.
After talking to Oh Se-chan on the phone, Kim Woo-jin closed it and recalled the conversation in his head.
‘We’re going to attack the Needle Snake Dungeon, are you willing to participate?’
Kim Woo-jin had directly refused without much thought and as if he was expecting it, Oh Se-chan had then said,
‘I knew you wouldn’t agree, so I’ll make you a deal.’
He proposed his deal to Kim Woo-jin.
‘First I want to ask. What would you do if I could give you a legendary item? What would you do in exchange for a legendary item.’
Kim Woo-jin said
“I’d do whatever I can.”
‘Would you do everything you could? Would you do anything?’
As Kim Woo-jin gave an affirmative answer, Oh Se-chan asked his last question.
‘What if I told you to kill a savior, or a hero? Could you do it?’
This time, Kim Woo-jin didn’t answer immediately.
‘You have to think about it?’
“Yes, I’m thinking.”
‘Haha! no need to think about it. No one would easily do something if they weren’t sure they could bear the cost.’
Oh Se-chan returned to his proposal.
‘Okay let’s get back to the topic. I’ll lend you a legendary item. That should greatly increase your skills. The condition is that you kill the Needle Snake. When you’ve completed the task, it’s yours.’
Kim Woo-jin naturally accepted such an offer. The conversation ended not long after that.
At the moment however, Oh Se-chan’s question kept replaying in Woo-jin’s head as he gently tapped the flip phone against his head.
‘For a legendary item, could you kill a savior or a hero?’
As he thought of the question, Kim Woo-jin finally gave his answer.
‘Something like that…I could do it for free.’
After he had this thought, Woo-jin got up and started preparing for the hunt.
‘Hunting a Needle Snake…that’s easy.’
