Kill The Hero – Chapter 97
The trade terms between the Phoenix Guild and the Frontier Guild were simple.
On the condition that the Phoenix Guild fully assisted the Frontier Guild’s advance into Korea, the Frontier Guild would support and protect the members of the Phoenix Guild in dungeons, to be precise they were supposed to protect the members of Park Yong-wan’s guards as they completed dungeons.
The contract did not show any real problems.
However Kim Woo-jin knew the truth.
‘I couldn’t receive such VIP treatment from the Frontier Guild.’
The fact was that things never flowed smoothly in accordance with contracts.
‘The difference in level is too large.’
First, the biggest problem was the difference in power between the Frontier Guild and the Phoenix Guild.
The Phoenix Guild was clearly a guild that had been praised for its fame, power and potential to reach the world stage.
No one denied that in the absence of the Messiah Guild, they would be the number 1 guild in Korea.
However the Frontier Guild was one of the top five guilds in the world.
There was no reason for the Frontier Guild to do this for Park Yong-wan, who was lauded for clearing a 6 Floor Dungeon, even if the person was a member of the Phoenix Guild.
‘And it would be no exaggeration to say that in terms of pride, the Frontier Guild is number 1 in the world.’
Moreover, the Frontier Guild was an incredibly proud guild.
It was because of the characteristics of the guild.
As seen by the name Frontier, the pioneers, the Frontier Guild thought that they, unlike other guilds, pioneered dungeons, rather than attacked them.
‘If Sam Oliver is the one in charge then he will be even more proud.’
Among the members of the Frontier Guild, Sam Oliver, who was sent to Korea to support the Phoenix Guild, was the worst.
From the fact that Kim Woo-jin knew his name, meant that Sam Oliver was no ordinary person.
Actually, he was more than just ‘not ordinary’.
‘If you were the owner of the Spear of Percival then anyone would be just as proud.’
Sam Oliver was the owner of the Spear of Percival who was one of the Knights of the Round table.
‘All the more since he managed to keep the spear till he was over level 200.’
He had managed to stay the owner of the item for more than 200 levels.
That meant that no one was able to take the weapon from him for 200 levels.
It was more difficult to protect and keep legendary weapons compared to other items.
‘He hid it very well.’
It was only possible because it was Sam Oliver who was the owner of Percival’s Spear.
He only ever used the spear at extremely dangerous moments.
‘He only used it when necessary.’
In other words, he was strong enough to not have to rely on Percival’s Spear.
And he would treat a player he’d never heard of like Kim Woo-jin, like a VIP.
It was impossible.
This is what caused Kim Woo-jin to be convinced.
‘It will be a battle of wills soon.’
The meeting with the Frontier Guild members in a few minutes would not go smoothly.
“Nice to meet you. I’m Jamie Kim from the Frontier Guild Legal Team.”
The person who entered was a black haired foreigner.
“I’m here to give you a few notices.”
This was the will of the Frontier Guild.
‘He looks pretty shallow.’
Kim Woo-jin kept a firm expression as he tried hard to hold back the expression of disdain that almost slipped out.
“Are there any Frontier Guild players?”
His voice and expression showed that he was upset.
“You will meet them after the notice.”
But Jamie Kim was adamant.
No, it wasn’t determination.
“Again, this is a notice. Whatever you want to do, you can do it after the notice is over.”
It was, in effect, a threat.
As he noticed this, Kim Woo-jin nodded with a colder expression.
Jamie Kim spoke with his arrogant tone.
“From now on, Kim Woo-jin, everything you do will be under the control of the Frontier Guild. For transportation, you can only use the vehicles provided by the Frontier Guild. If you have insurance for your car you should either cancel it or get rid of it.”
At the end of that, Kim Woo-jin’s expression was frozen.
But Jamie Kim didn’t stop speaking.
“And from now on you can only stay where the Frontier Guild permits. Other locations are prohibited. Please use only the room in the hotel that will be provided to you. Naturally, you will only be able to eat what we offer. It means you cannot even buy or eat gum outside.”
As he heard more and more shocking words, Kim Woo-jin no longer needed to pretend to have a cold expression.
“And in the dungeons…”
However that was all good when compared to the words that were said after.
“Don’t do anything.”
At the end Kim Woo-jin even responded for the first time.
His surprise was genuine, and Jamie Kim pushed up his glasses before responding to him.
“Yes, don’t move a finger.”
Once again words forced their way out of his mouth.
At that moment, Jamie Kim had hit the desk with his fist.
“The content of the contract only said to protect you and help you to level up, there was no clause to respect your personality or freedom.”
Kim Woo-jin closed his mouth and Jamie Kim looked at him with ridicule.
“So you don’t have to do anything in the dungeon, just take what the Frontier Guild gives you.”
At those words, Kim Woo-jin put on an odd expression and covered his mouth with his right hand.
‘To provide all the vehicles, accommodation and food and make me sit and get free experience in a dungeon?’
Somehow he managed to endure it.
‘Is there a hidden camera somewhere?’
A laugh came out of him unknowingly.
(TL: this chapter upset me a bit so I’m kinda glad it was short…kinda)
