Kill The Hero – Chapter 56
It was not uncommon for monsters to escape from battles. Dragons hundreds of metres in length, turtles larger than mountains, even Ice Golems as hard as diamonds could run away.
[The Needle Snake has been afflicted with Blood Poison.]
[The Needle Snake’s stats have been reduced.]
Therefore, when the Needle Snake that had been stabbed by the Skeleton Soldier, turned its back and began to escape, Kim Woo-jin was already expecting it.
There were ways to handle escaping monsters.
‘It started running away.’
Of course, he had made preparations for this exact moment.
“Report your situation.”
“Installation complete! But is it really gonna come this way? How could you predict which direction it would run in?”
In response to Lee Jin-ah’s question, the view of Kim Woo-jin, who wore the Grim Reaper’s Mask, shifted.
Then he began to see the world through the eyes of one of his Skeleton Soldiers. There, he could see many types of monsters’ bodies laid on the floor and Lee Jin-ah whistling as he hid his hand which had just held up a middle finger to the skeleton, behind his back.
“Is it really coming this way? How did you do it?”
Finally they saw a giant snake approaching them quickly.
“I’m falling back!”
When the Needle Snake appeared, Lee Jin-ah immediately retreated. However, the Skeleton Soldier didn’t move. Instead it stood there, waiting.
The Skeleton Soldier waited till the Needle Snake reached the bodies laying on the ground and when it did, the skeleton then slammed its hands together and chanted a spell.
The bodies erupted in a huge explosion.
Oh Se-chan who was looking at documents, lifted his and called for his subordinate.
“I have a question.”
Oh Se-chan’s serious expression and tone made his subordinate very nervous.
“When making documents, how much can we reduce the costs, if we reduce the font size by half?”
When he heard this, the worker’s nervous expression morphed into something difficult to describe.
Oh Se-chan’s expression didn’t shift and he kept staring at the worker.
“If we reduce the font by half, wouldn’t the ink and paper we use be only half?”
His subordinate gave an ugly smile, similar to if he was crying.
“Yes that’s a great idea. We can even buy A4 paper discarded by the manufacturer which costs only 50 won per kilogram.”
When he heard this, Oh Se-chan looked at his subordinate with an appreciative gaze.
The subordinate felt like crying.
Oh Se-chan was maybe the only boss who was willing to use A4 paper that had been discarded by the manufacturer.
“Hey I was just making a joke…”
Fortunately another subordinate rushed into the office, defusing the awkward atmosphere.
“The attack on the 4 Floor Dungeon by the Phoenix Guild failed. It was complete annihilation!”
Oh Se-chan was not surprised by this news.
‘I knew it.’
“One of Park Yong-wan’s subordinates also died there. When Park Yong-wan returns, he’ll definitely be upset about it.”
The dungeon the subordinate was talking about is a 4 Floor C-rank Dungeon that had appeared in Gwangju. It was very well known that the leader of the Phoenix Guild party was a talent that Park Yong-wan intended to nurture.
“I guessed it, but those guys at the Yamato Federation really drew their blades.”
Oh Se-chan also knew that there was a spy of the Yamato Federation within the group that had challenged the dungeon. That spy had willingly become a kamikaze fighter for their cause.
“So what will happen now?”
Naturally he also knew what would happen after.
“In the interview when he comes out of the dungeon, Park Yong-wan will be a hero of the world, pretending he knows nothing. When he gets home, he’ll shout, scream and break a few things. He’ll want to find out what happened. Then, we’ll just send a few documents.”
While he spoke, a smile spread across Oh Se-chan’s face.
“We’ll make the font twice as big as usual.”
“It will be an all out war. But won’t the government step in at that point?”
“Park Yong-wan will follow the negotiations between the Japanese and Korean governments. At least on the surface, that’s what his personality is like. If it’s to his benefit, that guy can even sell his country, but he will always have a knife hidden behind his back. No one would be able to tell his intentions.”
Oh Se-chan, who was speaking, recalled.
‘The Messiah Guild definitely knows what happened.’
From what he knew, there were multiple lines connecting the Messiah Guild to the Yamato Federation, the Skull Guild being just one of them.
‘Nevertheless, the Yamato Federation has stabbed Park Yong-wan…the Messiah Guild must have targeted him as well.’
In other words, the attack on Park Yong-wan was probably the will of the Messiah Guild.
‘But the Messiah Guild won’t be able to completely cover their tracks. For those who know the true face of the Messiah Guild it wouldn’t be hard to catch their tails.’
A thought came to Oh Se-chan’s mind and he couldn’t help but recall a man’s face. The start of this entire issue.
‘I wonder how much Kim Woo-jin has grown by now.’
Thinking about Kim Woo-jin, Oh Se-chan turned to his subordinate.
“Send a car to pick up Kim Woo-jin and Lee Jin-ah.”
“Ah? Hasn’t it only been 8 days since they entered the dungeon?”
Oh Se-chan smiled at this question.
“I’m not spending money on a whim. Since I told you to do it, just do it.”
Only then did the subordinate nod and asked another question.
“What car would you like me to send? Should I get a rental car as usual? Should I call for one from the junkyard?”
Oh Se-chan’s face dropped when he heard this.
“What are you talking about? Do you think I’m afraid to spend money? Naturally you have to send a vehicle for a Russian diplomat. That way, even if there’s a problem, we can get rid of it right?”
The subordinate nodded, his expression unreadable.
Seeing that he understood, Oh Se-chan couldn’t help but ask a final question,
“Actually…are there any light cars among diplomatic vehicles?”
