Kill The Hero – Chapter 70
The appearance of the woman who said this stood out in many ways.
She wore bright, golden armor, had a short, sporty haircut and yet her beauty was eye opening.
None of these things were ordinary. But these weren’t what made her the most unique.
“Two people are missing.”
Her name was Kang Young-ji, a member of the Messiah Guild who was said to be among the best players under level 40 in the guild.
More precisely, she was deliberately not trying to pass level 40.
“After reaching level 40 and waiting for a month…”
She’d reached level 40 more than a month ago and after that she had stopped trying to level up.
This was all in preparation to hunt the Horned Fox Dungeon.
The Horned Fox’s horn was worth a lot and she was willing to sacrifice a few months for it.
In other words she was determined to clear this dungeon somehow.
“We just entered the dungeon yet two guys disappeared silently before the first battle?”
However two people had already disappeared.
This problem didn’t give a good or a bad feeling.
“Don’t apologize. Send a search party.”
The dungeon was one that had been failed 12 times and the maximum number of entries was 40 people.
“Send out a search party and bring the two of them back alive.”
The absence of 2 out of a group of 40 was a percentage that couldn’t be ignored as it represented 5% of the group.
“Without the Needle Snake Hunter, the plan will change.”
Needless to say, when the Needle Snake Hunter’s group had been brought in by the Messiah Guild, they had been made the core of a plan.
At the words of Kang Young-ji the Messiah Guild members began to move hurriedly.
Kang Young-ji also prepared to move.
The other Messiah Guild members also became aware of the situation.
“Do you want us to all move directly?”
“It’s too dangerous,we should just send a team to search.”
Everyone was a bit worried, but Kang Young-ji was different.
“We need to be cautious in case the two of them intend to betray us.”
Everyone shut up when they heard that word.
“When you’ve first entered the Messiah guild you need to be wary of the things you hear. Don’t believe anyone but us.”
The Messiah Guild fought to save the world without caring about the other guilds.
The Messiah Guild members all stood and nodded at Kang Young-ji’s words.
“Then let’s all move together.”
“It’s better to exercise your body than stay still in the cold anyway.”
It wasn’t just the Messiah Guild Members who stood, members of the other guilds who had entered the dungeon with them also began to rise.
“What should we do if we’re left alone?”
“We should take a look too.”
Kang Young-ji looked at them with a smile.
“This is not a joke and we are in a dungeon. We still need to watch the base camp.”
At that time, the players of the search party gathered around her. When she saw this, she put on her golden helmet.
“Very well. Then shall we go see the skills of the First Needle Snake Hunter?”
Kang Young-ji was an expert. Even within the Messiah Guild which was one of the top five guilds in the world, she was a person who could receive special treatment.
In fact, when she was just level 10 she’d received a scout offer that guaranteed billions of won.
So when she’d heard that someone had successfully hunted the Needle Snake, she was more annoyed than surprised.
There was a resentment because someone stole what she felt should’ve been hers. So this time she willingly agreed to the offer when she knew that the Needle Snake’s hunter would be in this dungeon.
She was prepared to show that she was much stronger than the so-called Needle Snake Hunter and she was very confident if they were to fight.
But her plan wasn’t so simple. She was planning to beat the First Needle Snake Hunter skillfully and put him below her. She would then work with him to fight to save the world, using him as a colleague or subordinate at the same approximate level.
That was the plan she’d had until a few moments ago.
‘This is ridiculous.’ (TL: Dun Dun Dun…Another one bites the dust…)
However, the moment she saw twenty fully armed Skeleton Soldiers slaughtering a group of monsters, she was forced to think again, even her common sense seemed to have shifted.
‘How is that..?’
Of course she’d heard the news.
The fact that Isaac Ivanov was a Necromancer with extremely strong skeletons was a rather famous story. The Messiah Guild also conducted serious investigations and discussions to see if it was worth it to nurture a Necromancer player. However, the Skeleton Soldiers that they had, simply weren’t strong enough.
‘How can the skeletons fight so well?’
These Skeleton Soldiers’ fighting abilities were much higher than regular players.
No, they were like expert players.
‘If it’s like this…’
It wasn’t easy for Kang Young-ji to think of a player who fought as well as they did.
Eventually a thought came to her mind.
What would happen if they were made to fight that group of skeletons?
A sound came from her throat.
“Hey, what do we do captain?”
Then the subordinate next to her asked a question.
Not surprisingly, the men who came with her were also embarrassed.
When Isaac Ivanov’s group disappeared, they came to rescue them. However no one needed rescue.
“Should we help?”
Should we help?
With that said, Kang Young-ji looked back at the battlefield.
“It’s a good place to hunt, if he needs help we can go exercise our skills.”
This was his hunting ground and the screams of monsters could be heard throughout.
Kang Young-ji made a decision as she saw this.
‘I’m not someone who can defeat him.’
Isaac Ivanov was not someone who could just be beaten by anyone.
‘I need to properly inform the guild.’
For this, the opinion of the Messiah Guild’s executive officers was needed.
Kang Young-ji was planning to properly describe Isaac Ivanov’s abilities to the guild.
‘He must be on our side.’
Also she was intending to have them invite him to join the Messiah Guild.
Then someone shouted.
“There’s a big problem!”
“More monsters are coming!”
(TL: I think the next chapter will really make up for the length of this one.)
