Chapter 11. Heart of the Red Mist (1)
Baek Tae-beom looked at me with his eyes wide open as if to ask me what was happening, though he didn’t know that my gaze would fall on Jin-woo’s pocket. As far as I can remember, even if this was a scenario-type dungeon, there wasn’t a special dungeon like <Little Purgatory>, so loot would come out of dungeons where monsters appeared like this.
And the monsters that Baek Tae-beom had killed would also have left some items. I couldn’t check because I was in a hurry earlier, but I definitely saw something falling. And these guys must have followed like Hansel and Gretel, picking it up.
I was a bit annoyed after he pushed me down and didn’t even bother giving me a single apology, but it was more important to make sure that the supply and demand of items was stored out than that.
Yoo Jin-woo, who was puzzled by my words, bit his lip, and made a threatening expression.
He raised his head with a groan.
“And why should I give them to you?”
“Why are you saying?”
“Didn’t you agree to divide the items into 7:3?”
He spoke rather brazenly as he rummaged through his bulging pocket and pulled out something like a red shard. About a dozen or so seemed to be and were shining as red as rubies.
[Heart of the Red Mist D]
[The Heart of the Red Mist. When combined with a specific material, items can be created.]
I tried my best to not seem surprised.
‘That came from here?’
This item was not obtained until the middle of the development of the main character, Kang Si-hoo. I can’t believe it came out from the beginning. It was a part where we could see how Baek Tae-beom was captured from the beginning. I’m sure they were forced to do it, and all the items from the dungeon were taken away.
Baek Tae-beom was the most ominous villain in the original novel, but unlike in the novel, he had signed a contract with me in the early stages of his awakening. I couldn’t wait to see Baek Tae-beom’s downfall and the destruction of the world.
“So, do you have any complaints?”
“How could you push Ga-hyun-ssi like that…!”
“It’s alright, Baek Tae-beom.”
Having said that, I confidently held out my hand.
“You didn’t do anything, did you?”
“Why are you saying so much about Tae-beom-ssi after all that you’ve done was dragging his feet and having him carry you? Just leave it all there and get lost already.”
“What’s with this, bastard?”
As soon as Yoo Jin-woo took a step forward with an infuriated expression, Baek Tae-beom drew his sword as if he was going to deal with him right away. Then, Kim Yong-tae, who was quickly squirming with a wrinkled expression, pulled the hem of Yoo Jin-woo’s clothes.
“Just hand it over and let’s go.”
“What are you going to do, you bastard?”
“You saw it, too! That bastard was wielding a sword! What if they try to kill us too?”
The current Baek Tae-beom would not have wanted to kill anyone, but I did not dare to say anything and looked at the poking bastards. To be honest, it was right to trust Baek Tae-beom and act like this.
They chatted amongst themselves, and soon frowned and threw a few <Heart of The Red Mist> on the ground.
“Here, have it! It’s too filthy….”
“We gave you everything we could!”
Kim Yong-tae shouted and went back to the car we used. Baek Tae-beom didn’t watch them as they left as if he was dumbfounded. I started picking up the <Heart of Red Mist> that had fallen on the floor.
“Oh, even if you have a lot of these, they aren’t worth it if you don’t know how to use them, so it’s okay. They’ll probably try to sell it because they don’t know how to, but with this much….”
“That’s not it.”
My arms were grabbed, and my body was raised up at once. The strength in my hands slackened, and the items I was holding dropped into the rainwater on the ground. I didn’t even bother picking them up again, as I had no choice but to look at Baek Tae-beom, who was holding me. His expression was calm, and there were no signs of anger, but I felt something subtle.
“Why did you do that?”
“You just let them go.”
“We got the items. We didn’t even divide the coins. You received the coins, right?”
Baek Tae-beom’s eyebrows twitched.
“How old are you?”
[Your contractor feels enraged.]
I shivered, in the thought that Baek Tae-beom had already started to turn evil.
“So, you can speak comfortably to me.”
“Speak comfortably? Hm. Like this?”
“Yes. I’ll call you Hyung as well.”
“Just call me Tae-beom. It’s nice to be comfortable with each other, Hyung.”
Are you going to hit me after all this sweet talk? Because I wasn’t supposed to meddle in your business? At that moment, Baek Tae-beom raised his hand and I closed my eyes reflexively.
‘I’m done for…!’
