Chapter 101. Lottery
Weekly Chapter (4/4)
A week later they received a call from the Hansung Guild. They were eating the rice Baek-Taebeom had cooked.
Seasoned perilla leaves, soybean paste stew…
The soybean paste stew was a bit salty but edible.
He felt uncomfortable eating in Baek-Taebeom’s presence.
He looks like a statue escaped from a museum…
In the fridge there was only Korean food. There were even packaged vegetables that appeared to have been purchased at the right price.
He explained to Baek-Taebeom that his body didn’t need food, but he didn’t seem to understand. He argued that his body needed the necessary nutrients, regardless of his appetite.
It really overwhelms me.
It seemed that Baek-Taebeom believed that his body was a sheet of paper that would be blown away by the wind. He was forced to eat as much as he could.
When he came to his senses, he was doing push-ups. You appear to have a talent for sports, I think you gained muscle in your arms. He tried to motivate him.
He seemed happy because they were together all day.
Baek-Taebeom looked at his cell phone.
“In two days they will attack the Leaning Tower. Everything is already prepared, will you go?”
“I can’t stop you, right?”
“In case I win the lottery tomorrow, I won’t go.”
Baek-Taebeom remained silent. He added,
“I can’t depend on you and the Hansung Guild forever.”
“But we help each other.”
“It’s strange that your argument was brief.”
Choi Ga-hyun, who lowered his chopsticks, calmly spoke,
“Applications were received from different guilds, so too many people are going to participate. It’s an S-class dungeon, we must have prepared thoroughly. I promise you I’ll be in the rearguard.”
And he had discussed something with Apollo beforehand.
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling than The Sun: Did you say Leaning Tower?”]
[CH. Personal/One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall: Do you have any information about the dungeon?”]
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling than The Sun: Yes. I think Angrboda is trying to get back the three sons that Odin stole. The dungeon connects the sons to this world].
[CH. Personal/One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall: Sons?]
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling than The Sun: Myths are useful because stories have power. Attempts to use it for destruction.]
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling than The Sun: But there is an important point. No matter how much Angrboda uses other constellations or contractors, there are limits to how much power it can affect the real world.]
[CH. Personal/One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall: then… she has another aim.]
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling than The Sun: Even if your contractor protects you, you should still be careful. There may be something hidden in that dungeon.]
[CH. Personal/One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall: You’re right. Now that Kang Si-hoo has started to act, suddenly the next floor of the dungeon was discovered.]
A coincidence? No. He couldn’t miss this opportunity. He had to somehow talk to Kang Si-hoo again. There was a high probability that Kang Si-hoo would appear, since the Leaning Tower was an unusual dungeon.
He was relieved when he learned that Baek-Taebeom would not cause the destruction, but he also felt even more nervous. A variable beyond his control could destroy the world.
Baek-Taebeom interrupted his thoughts.
“Do you need that much money?”
When he heard this question, he was speechless. Although he needed money, it was just an excuse. Baek-Taebeom would not understand any other excuse.
Although he had told him a secret, he didn’t plan to tell him everything about the future.
