Chapter 13. Streaming service (1)
At that, I was left completely speechless.
How do you know? I had nothing to say. I couldn’t answer that I knew because I’ve read the whole novel, in which you appeared in, except the epilogue. Baek Tae-beom’s gaze at me deepened when I didn’t answer and only kept my mouth shut. I felt chagrined by the suspicious look on his face.
“How do you know, Hyung?”
Reluctant to ask insistently, I suddenly came up with an answer.
I whispered, acting as if I were speaking about something exceedingly difficult to bring up.
“I have a constellation too.”
“I have a constellation just like you. I couldn’t talk about it before because the constellation told me not to say anything about its existence.”
[The constellation, ‘One Who Knows The Fall’, tells Baek Tae-beom that what he is saying is right.]
[The constellation, ‘One Who Knows The Fall’ whispers to Baek Tae-beom that it is true.]
It seemed that even two brains would not be enough to deceive, lie, and catch the wind of it.
“My constellation told me. We were going to get something useful in that dungeon. So I went to the dungeon using my skill, and it just so happened that you… were there also.”
That’s an incredibly stupid explanation, I could only think that. I laughed as I held the remaining <Heart of the Red Mist> on Baek Tae-beom’s hands.
“And you take this. It’s useless to me. And you’ll probably get quite a bit of money if you sell it.”
“What, do you have any more questions?”
I spoke naturally and smiled at Baek Tae-beom. There were no more excuses now. A cold sweat ran down my cheeks.
Then, Baek Tae-beom slowly shook his head, and began to speak in a moved voice.
“How could you think of me as so much…. You’re a really, really good guy.”
I was convinced.
‘This guy’s a real pushover.’

As soon as I got home, the first thing I did was thoroughly inspect the <Soul’s Sanctuary> skill. And as a result, I’ve learned several things.
First, as a result of experimenting with two watches, I found out that the flow of time spent in the sanctuary and outside is the same. I also learned that by carrying the watch inside, I could carry external objects into the sanctuary.
So I realized that I could use this sanctuary like some kind of home.
Sleeping on a mattress in a room full of books did not do me any good, so I decided to stop renting the room and live here. This was because I was able to create new facilities in the sanctuary.
[House Interior for a Small Constellation E]
[An installation item made for constellations who want to play house.]
[Price: 10,000 Coins]
I suddenly thought of the constellations washing in the bathroom and shook my head. Because it was clear that only people in special situations like me would use this.
And there was a fact that I realized late, perhaps because the situation had suddenly come to this point.
I didn’t feel hungry.
Like a person whose metabolism had stopped completely.
It was kinda nice, but not unacceptable. Rather, I thought positively. If I don’t eat, then I can save money on food, isn’t that a good thing? Above all, it’s not like I couldn’t eat at all.
It was all the more so considering that I was fired from my part-time job a while ago. I don’t think I’ll get sick because I’m only eating ramen now.
I removed the bandages that were wrapped around my wrist. I was able to move the injured part effortlessly. I was appalled that my body wasn’t like mine, but I think it would be hard to survive without this much merit in the first place.
I wonder what Baek Tae-beom is doing now?
[According to your will, the real-time streaming service of the contractor will proceed.]
I thought he might be sleeping by now. It was morning, but it could be that due to the fatigue accumulated from yesterday’s experience not being completely relieved in a day. Or maybe he’s doing something else now.
From what I could remember, Baek Tae-beom was originally a college student, and was working part-time after taking a leave of absence to pay for his younger brother’s hospital bills. I don’t know what time he goes to work part-time, but would it be that he’s working hard in the morning?
But I was a bit shocked by the fact that one side of the wall was blurred.
“What’s going on?”
And suddenly, a handsome face appeared. Pure white hair soaked in water was clinging to his cheeks, and his beautifully shining golden eyes looked straight ahead. The tall nose bridge, thick red lips, the veins lined on his neck and the collarbone, and that chest….
“Wait, this crazy… No, no! Stop!”
