Kill The Hero – Chapter 76
In a field of snow there were a few strange looking structures. For all intents and purposes, they could be called igloos.
Kang Young-ji and her companions had built the igloos to withstand the cold winds and snow.
It was a great idea considering the igloo’s ability to protect them from the cold. No, rather, thanks to the igloo’s they were finally able to create a somewhat warmer environment than on the first floor.
In the igloo with the fire, the temperature had risen to over 20 degrees. It was the best luxury they could receive in the dungeon when they didn’t even know when they’d die.
“Is it okay to stay like this?”
However the expressions of Kang Young-ji and her subordinates who should’ve been enjoying this bit of luxury were not good.
“It’s only the two of them hunting the fox…”
“It would be dangerous.”
Isaac Ivanov and his companion had forced them to watch as they went to hunt the Horned Fox.
It was actually really crazy.
“It’s not that dangerous. The Horned Fox…it’s not like it can stand up to those two.”
The scariest thing about the Horned Fox was that it was faster than a cheetah. Even in a snow field, it could move as fast as it wanted to.
The amount of destructive damage produced by an attack at such a speed didn’t need to be expressly stated.
“Even if it wanted to escape, it would be hard to catch it…”
It’s speed was its most useful tool if it found that it was fighting a losing battle. It was incredibly fast and it would be almost impossible to catch it even after surrounding it.
In order to deal with such a difficult opponent, it was necessary to have a party with impeccable teamwork so that they could block, capture and deal damage to the Horned Fox all at once. It wasn’t something one would expect two people to do.
“We made an offer.”
Before entering the second floor of the dungeon, Kang Young-ji made an offer to Isaac Ivanov to work together to hunt the Horned fox, but she was rejected.
“There’s nothing we can do since we were refused.”
They would hunt the Horned Fox alone and they asked that no one interfered.
“We could only listen to their demands as they’d helped us before.”
There was no way they could just reject the request of the ones who saved their lives.
“So for now we just wait. The moment they request for help, they’ll have to pay a high price for their lives.”
They were just waiting for the situation to change.
And change it did.
[The Horned Fox has been successfully hunted.]
[The Dungeon has been cleared.]
They cleared the dungeon.
The dungeon gate for the Horned Fox Dungeon was located near the Bucheon Sports Complex(Stadium).
“Damn, what sort of war is this?”
An untimely disturbance had broken out there.
“The Dungeon has been cleared! Cleared in 6 days!”
The reason for the turmoil was the fact that the dungeon had been cleared 6 days after the players, including those from the Messiah Guild had entered it.
“Who cleared it? The Messiah Guild? Isaac Ivanov?”
“Everyone must be interviewed! We need to interview every single one of the players!”
The dungeon that had failed twelve times before, had finally been cleared. so of course there was a large fuss.
“There! Isaac Ivanov just got into that car!”
In the chaos, a Mercedes-Benz S Class could be seen driving away.
But no one dared to rush toward the vehicle.
“What exactly is the identity of Isaac Ivanov?”
‘Whenever he moves, does he have to do so in a diplomatic vehicle?’
Against the diplomatic number plate on the vehicle, neither the reporter nor even members of the Messiah Guild dared to act.
“Oh my gosh, I’m dying!”
Lee Jin-ah, who was riding in the backseat of the car, let out a cry in pain as they escaped the bustle.
Naturally, getting intentionally stabbed by a Horned Fox was something that most players wouldn’t be able to survive.
He had done some temporary treatment with potions, but he needed to have more authentic treatment.
The driver, who was Oh Se-chan’s subordinate, quickly responded to him.
“I will go to the hospital immediately-.”
Lee Jin-ah interrupted him before he could finish.
“Go to a convenience store near the hospital first.”
“I think it’s better to eat about fifty Samgak Kimbap(TL:Triangular Kimbap). Oh yeah, did Se-chan give you his card?” (TL: He means credit card, it’s common for team leaders and managers to sponsor meals with the company card or even their personal ones as a reward or celebration)
“Is…this a prank?”
Lee Jin-ah answered Oh Se-chan’s subordinate with a serious tone. (TL: They keep saying ‘Oh Se-chan’s subordinate’ but isn’t Lee Jin-ah technically one as well? lol)
“You don’t think I’m serious?”
It wasn’t really a joke. The thing that Lee Jin-ah, who had received the Blessing of the River Styx, needed the most right now was fuel and calories to maximize his resilience and healing.
“What would you like to eat?”
Lee Jin-ah then threw a question toward Kim Woo-jin who was sitting beside him in the backseat. But he received no answer.
Instead, Kim Woo-jin was staring at a 50cm long silver horn in his hands.
Seeing this, Lee Jin-ah could only let out a laugh.
“Ah, fuck it. I guess I’ll just eat everything on my own.”
It was then that Kim Woo-jin said to the driver.
“Please make a note.”
The subordinate nodded.
“What report do you want me to write?”
“If the Messiah Guild desperately wants it, I will willingly donate the Horned Fox’s horn to them.”
“What? Hey? Are you crazy? Willingly donate it? The Messiah Guild?”
Not only was the driver surprised, but so was Lee Jin-ah as he bombarded Kim Woo-jin with questions.
Kim Woo-jin simply repeated himself.
“If the Messiah Guild desperately wants it, please give it to them.” (TL: What’s Kim Woo-jin up to this time)
[The Hunt of the Horned Fox Succeeds.]
[Successfully hunted the Horned Fox after twelve failed tries.]
When the Horned Fox Dungeon was cleared, of course the related articles broke out like a storm.
But that was it. It was an A rank dungeon with a unique monster that had been failed numerous times yet there were only a few articles about it.
Even in the main news portal sites it was hard to find any articles even if you washed your eyes and looked around.
As the media was all quiet, the public opinion was also forced to be quiet. However, the moment the articles appeared, the situation changed.
[Horned Fox Hunter Isaac Ivanov!]
[Even hunting the Horned Fox after the Needle Snake!]
The Needle Snake Hunter Isaac Ivanov had once again grabbed the attention of the world.
[Isaac Ivanov defeated the Messiah Guild and succeeded in hunting the Horned Fox!]
