Kill The Hero – Chapter 60
In 2025, the history of humanity changed. The balance between the humans and monsters shifted. Monsters began taking over cities, even a few small countries were conquered.
It was hell.
In that hell, Koreans were given shocking news.
The news said that this man, one of the strongest players in Korea, who believed he was the hope for the Korean people, gathered thousands of players and powerful items and immigrated to Japan.
Anyone who heard of this, knew he was selling out his country.
Everyone in Korea cursed him. But that was all they could do.
There was no one powerful enough to judge Park Yong-wan now that he had collaborated with Japan, it was too strong.
However, Kim Woo-jin was different. While others criticized Park Yong-wan, he planned to get rid of him.
Kim Woo-jin probably knew Park Yong-wan better than Park Yong-wan knew himself.
‘Park Yong-wan is more interested in personal gain than anything else.’
But it could not be considered as greed. Park Yong-wan wouldn’t sell out his country for greed.
It wasn’t like there was much to be gained from selling himself, players and items to Japan, to be precise, the concept of assets was meaningless.
With the way the world was being destroyed by the monsters, money had lost its value. Real estate was not even worth anything.
‘Even if the cost was to sell his own country, he will do whatever it takes to protect his own interests.’
The reason Park Yong-wan betrayed his country was because he was afraid that everything in South Korea would be absorbed by the Messiah Guild.
So Kim Woo-jin was sure.
‘That guy would never let something like this go.’
Revenge. For that, Park Yong-wan was ready to pay anything.
“Remuneration is good. But I don’t wanna get involved in such a dangerous situation.”
Confident in what he knew, Kim Woo-jin asked.
“At least I want to avoid Tosa Gu-pang. Can you pay me if I die?”
Of course, Kim Woo-jin wasn’t really afraid of Tosa Gu-pang.
What he truly wanted was a scapegoat.
The owner is responsible for the actions of the dog.
If Kim Woo-jin accepted Park Yong-wan’s offer, that meant it would be Park Yong-wan’s responsibility. Even if Kim Woo-jin attacked the Messiah Guild, Park Yong-wan would have to bear the responsibility for it.
And that was Kim Woo-jin’s aim.
In response, Park Yong-wan stared at Kim Woo-jin, instead of answering.
In fact, Park Yong-wan was inwardly panicking.
‘Look at this bitch.’
When he first called Kim Woo-jin, he was trying to make him into a hunting dog, and have him bite the Skull Guild.
‘I didn’t expect it to turn out like this…’
Park Woo-jin had planned to threaten him if necessary, and if he still didn’t agree, then kill him. But now Kim Woo-jin had given him an unexpected proposal.
‘What’s with this..?”
Naturally Park Yong-wan was able to tell that Kim Woo-jin was hiding something. If it was before, he would’ve already killed him.
‘Well, if he can bite the Skull Guild, it doesn’t matter if he’s a crazy dog.’
However things were different now.
“That’s an interesting offer you have. What exactly can you do if I look after you?”
Park Yong-wan asked for more details, and Kim Woo-jim replied as if he was waiting for it.
“The Skull Guild are probably anxious to kill me.”
It was what Park Yong-wan wanted to hear the most.
“Hyung, I’m here.”
Oh Se-chan, who was organizing documents on his desk, responded to Lee Jin-ah’s greeting without looking up.
Oh Se-chan’s expression was cold as if he didn’t want to talk to anyone.
“I bought pizza. Have some.”
But when he heard what Lee Jin-ah said next, Oh Se-chan’s smiled brighter than the hot cheese on the pizza.
“Hey, my brother Lee Jin-ah! The manliest man in the world! I was waiting for you to come!”
“Se-chan, don’t be like that.”
“Sorry, what kind of pizza is it?”
Lee Jin-ah placed three boxes stacked on top of each other on a desk.
“I bought this and that.”
The other employees who were also working in the office, looked on in interest.
“I’m not a little person who’s afraid to spend money to even buy a cup of noodles.”
Lee Jin-ah’s words were full of hurt.
“I couldn’t even buy noodles with that money. I came to Seoul cause I didn’t want to be stuck longer in that car.”
“I’m sorry, was it that bad? I know.”
Lee Jin-ah was surprised by Oh Se-chan’s apology. Of course, his surprised expression didn’t last long.
“At least you should’ve spent some money to get coffee from the vending machine…sorry”
Following the words of Oh Se-chan, Lee Jin-ah could only smile in frustration.
“So what’s up? You wanna make a report?”
“I finished reporting, but what is it?”
“Oh! Kim Woo-jin cried. We killed all the monsters. Kim Woo-jin was great. I have nothing to say and I did all I could.”
When he heard this, Lee Jin-ah frowned.
“Then what do you say? I’ll score everything Kim Woo-jin did as 1 out of 10.”
Lee Jin-ah said in dissatisfaction.
“What’s that guys aim anyway?”
Oh Se-chan, who was biting into a slice of pizza and shrugged while looking at Lee Jin-ah’s expression.
“I don’t know.”
“Would you help him if you didn’t know?”
“I don’t need a reason if he helps me get rid of the Skull Guild, right?”
Lee Jin-ah also knew about the bad relationship between Park Yong-wan, the Skull Guild and the Yamato Federation behind it.
Of course, he also knew about the possible war between them.
“Who is it?”
As he asked this, his expression became quite serious.
Kim Woo-jin wouldn’t face off against the Skull Guild simply because of his sense of duty.
“Kim Je-hoon? Who is that?”
“A player from the Yamato Federation who later joined the Skull Guild. They have no achievements and they’re the type who aim for the safest dungeons to challenge. Usually dungeons without even C rank monsters.
“Is that it?”
“That’s all I know.”
Lee Jin-ah frowned again.
“Why is Kim Woo-jin after a guy who isn’t anything special?”
Lee Jin-ah who asked his questions, picked up three slices of pizza and started eating. Oh Se-chan frowned as he looked at him.
“What? Is it because I ate three slices? No wait, I bought this pizza.”
He made a face as though he’d been wronged But Oh Se-chan didn’t pay attention to him, that wasn’t the reason.
“That’s all the information I’ve managed to gather, that just means he’s good at hiding it.”
One of the ways that Oh Se-chan collected information was through backlogs.
Obviously the more the person tried to hide, the more loopholes one would be able to find in their disguise.
But this player either had exceptional loyalty, cowardice and no past to speak of, or he had the reason and ability to evade Oh Se-chan’s radar.
“Isn’t that just because you’re incompetent?”
Then Lee Jin-ah mentioned the third possibility.
Oh Se-chan nodded.
“Well as of right now, Lee Jin-ah, your bank account has been seized, you don’t have a credit card and you’re being hunted by interpol. I can’t help you.”
Lee Jin-ah’s face immediately stiffened.
“Ah! It-, it was a joke!”
His awkward laugh filled the room.
“Hyung do you like pepperoni pizza? Here, have a slice. I also bought some pickles. You can place them in the fridge and eat them as a side dish. There’s a lot of hot sauce too!”
Oh Se-chan’s cold face, studied Lee Jin-ah’s awkward expression and the office became silent.
It was at that moment.
One of the many cellphones on Oh Se-chan’s desk began to ring.
“Uh, the phone…”
Lee Jin-ah hurriedly to grab the phone and handed it to Oh Se-chan.
“It must be urgent.”
Oh Se-chan didn’t pursue it and instead answered the phone.
“Oh, Isaac. Did the meeting go well?”
The caller was Kim Woo-jin.
Oh Se-chan’s expression became firmer for a second.
Soon after, Oh Se-chan hung up with a frown.
