Chapter 10. Little Purgatory (4)
Baek Tae-beom asked urgently as he checked my condition. I could feel that something was flowing from the back of my head, so I think my head was hurt and bleeding. Seeing Baek Tae-beom’s surprised expression, my guess became even more credible.
“It’s not mist, it’s like a group of monsters. Just now, I cut it with a sword. Ga-hyun-ssi was right.”
Baek Tae-beom said as he lightly swung his sword dripping with red blood. He moved again, holding me in his arms. After the approaching red mist was cut away, the mist cuts again turned into solidified chunks and fell to the floor.
I only buried my face into Baek Tae-beom’s chest and rolled my eyes.

[Contractor – Baek Tae-beom]

Coins possessed: 3,000
Skills possessed: [Dark Sword Dance] [Hermit]
There are skills that have not been developed because the conditions are not met.]
Looking up, Baek Tae-beom’s expression seemed calm as usual. The same was true for his golden eyes. It didn’t seem like he was experiencing such flurry emotions, so I couldn’t think he was angry.
Then suddenly, our eyes met.
“Are you really sure that you’re okay?”
“…Ah, yes! I’m fine! I’m just bleeding a little!”
“That’s not usually okay.”
Hugging my waist a little tighter, Baek Tae-beom smiled and said.
“I’m going down the stairs like this, so hold on tight.”
Why do I feel so reassured?
Baek Tae-beom hugged me and went down the stairs step by step, cutting the approaching mist with his sword. The jelly-like entity was cut into chunks and dispersed in an instant. As if he was familiar with the sword, a spear came to my mind as if to let me know.
[Your contractor uses the skill. Skill: Dark Sword Dance]
[Your contractor’s sword proficiency will be increased in an instant.]
A pure white light erupted from Baek Tae-beom’s sword.
His figure also looked like someone, who was holding a torch high.
[Your contractor feels enraged.]
[Your contractor wants to kill Kim Yong-tae]
Did I see it wrong?
Until now, there was no way my innocent Baek Tae-beom would have thoughts like that. It was clear that I saw something wrong ever since my head was banged against the stairs.
Baek Tae-beom slowly cut through the fog and reached the lowest floor, the first floor. But there was no place that seemed like an exit, as well as the door we entered before. A red mist hovered around us as if it were trying to get a taste of us.
“What should I do? There is no exit. Was the first floor not the exit? Should I have gone upstairs?”
No, it can’t be. Inside the scenario <The Fall of Another World>, we had to solve the problem in this way unless there was a special case. I slipped out of Baek Tae-beom’s arms and looked around. And caught sight of a strange place.
“Look over there.”
There was an opened window where I pointed. And from the open window, the red mist kept coming in.
“I told you not to avoid the fog, but to get out. Maybe we should get in there and get out of there. That’s the only strange thing.”
“I’ll give it a try.”
Baek Tae-beom said, holding his sword firmly. He walked ahead and cut the fog in his way. It felt like something was falling to the floor every time the fog was split, but I couldn’t care less about it now.
As Baek Tae-beom approached the window, he gripped his sword again and thrusted the sword into the open window where the fog was coming in.
As his sword seemed like it stabbed into something soft, strange noises began resonating from all directions. A door appeared where Baek Tae-beom’s sword was embedded. Suddenly, the mist that had filled the surroundings disappeared.
[Congratulations on clearing the dungeon! Rewards have been distributed.]
[Reward: 15,000 Coins]
[You will be given a new title by clearing <Invasion of the Red Mist>]
[You left channel #70jj5.]
As soon as we opened the door, we were able to get out naturally through the door of the building we came in. Baek Tae-beom looked around curiously, then looked behind me and hardened his expression.
Kim Yong-tae and Yoo Jin-woo were getting out of there, gasping for air.
“Slow down, slow down!”
“Slow down? How could you say that after what you’ve done?”
Baek Tae-beom spoke fiercely as he grabbed me and led me behind him. It was only after I got out of the dungeon that I realized that I wasn’t in good shape right now. My ankle was sprained, and my wrist was swollen. There must have also been blood on my head, so I could understand why Baek Tae-beom carried me around like a mama kangaroo.
But that wasn’t the problem now.
“Hey, there, ahjussi.”
I said, pointing at Yoo Jin-woo’s bulging pocket.
“Give me that, please.”
