Kill The Hero – Chapter 68
It’s been a week since the battle with Kim Je-hoon and Yang Ji-hoo in the dungeon.
In that time the world kept moving as normal without any major changes.
In the Democratic Republic of Congo, cobalt prices spiked rapidly due to the appearance of monsters and in France the casualties caused by terrorist players were on the rise.
However situations like these were no longer uncommon in the world.
“The world has been quiet these few days.”
Lee Jin-ah ran his mouth while lounging in Oh Se-chan’s office during lunch.
Oh Se-chan looked at him with a cold gaze.
Seeing this, Lee Jin-ah only smiled.
“What did I do wrong?”
Lee Jin-ah looked at the small pot filled with ramen that was between him and Oh Se-chan.
“You’re not looking at me like that because I ate your ramen right?”
His connection crumpled as he said that.
“Damn I didn’t even eat any high-quality snacks.”
In the face of his fierce protest, Oh Se-chan made a face at him.
“Hey, do you really think I’m looking at you like this cause of ramen?”
Lee Jin-ah hesitated a little…
“You drive me crazy.”
“Is that not it?”
Oh Se-chan answered in an annoyed voice.
“No, it’s not.”
“Damn, then that’s good.”
“But that’s not all.”
Oh Se-chan tapped his head.
“In your eyes, the world is peaceful and beautiful, but to me, it is the complete opposite.”
“What’s going on?”
“I discarded Kim Je-hoon.”
It was an unexpected response.
Lee Jin-ah also knew what Kim Je-hoon was worth at this point.
“What does that mean?”
He couldn’t help asking.
“A shark took the bait I threw to catch a fish, what else could I do? I had to cut the fishing line quickly.”
Oh Se-chan’s face was firm and serious.
“We don’t have much time. Two years, three years at least. From then, unless we have the strength to contain them, they will actively show their ambitions. And the moment they show their ambitions, it’s virtually game over. No…the game won’t end if they show their ambition.”
(TL: I feel like that last part didn’t make much sense…but that’s what the author said…)
Lee Jin-ah’s expression also hardened when he heard that.
Oh Se-chan looked at him and said.
“So when you hunt the Horned Fox. The plans for the future will be completely different, depending on what happens.”
“Trust me. Who am I?”
“A hungry bastard.”
“Ah, really! Brother!! I need to stockpile energy to fight well!”
“You’re like a dog, but there’s two things you can do.”
Ignoring him, Oh Se-chan raised two fingers.
“One, is to support Kim Woo-jin as best as you can. The other hand, you need to properly verify Kim Woo-jin’s ability.”
“You want me to check his ability?”
“But you know already, don’t you?”
In return Oh Se-chan shook his head.
“No, in my opinion, Kim Woo-jin hasn’t even revealed half of his abilities.”
Oh Se-chan continued to stare at the surprised Lee Jin-ah.
“And in the Horned Fox Hunt, Kim Woo-jin will probably reveal 100%. He’s going to have a real exercise.”
After saying this much, Oh Se-chan sank into his thoughts.
‘Now it’s not time for me to be laid back anymore. Now…it’s time to go all in.’
Oh Se-chan thought of Kim Woo-jin.
‘I have to make Isaac Ivanov the equivalent of the Messiah Guild somehow.’
Thinking this, Oh Se-chan smiled bitterly.
‘I’m sorry Kim Woo-jin. But I need you to be a sacrifice to stop the Messiah Guild.’
He let out a bitter laugh, filled with his guilt.
‘I’m sorry, but I need all the help I can get.’
Kim Woo-jin’s bloody and wounded body looked clean compared to the corpse of the Horned Fox at his feet. In front of him, a woman with golden armor appeared.
“Are you Kim Woo-jin? I heard rumors about you but the real thing is even better than the rumors. What do you think? Would you like to join the Messiah Guild?”
The Messiah Guild had offered him a position.
Kim Woo-jin replied calmly.
“I want to talk to the leader directly, not some small management.”
Bring the leader of the Messiah Guild…of course it was a clear rejection.
At that time Kim Woo-jin didn’t think that he and the Messiah Guild would ever get along.
But he didn’t expect them to agree.
When the next proposal was brought, Lee Se-jun came to meet him personally and recruited him.
“Kim Woo-jin, the world needs more hunters like you.”
That was a memory.
(TL: hehehe bet all of you freaked out for a few seconds…GG author…GG)
Kim Woo-jin’s cell phone vibrated as he received a text message and he opened his eyes to check.
[Date confirmed, June 7th.]
Kim Woo-jin closed his eyes once again after reading it.
Then another text arrived.
[You must exercise your skills properly.]
When he saw the text, Kim Woo-jin’s facial expression didn’t change. Instead he looked at what was in front of him.
An armor made completely from Needle Snake Skin, it’s shape seeming as if it wouldn’t fit him.
This armor was Kim Woo-jin’s answer instead.
He was ready to show off his skills.
(TL: A bit of a short chapter this time, hopefully we get longer, juicier ones in the future *-*)
