Chapter 17. Mana Stone (1)
Lee Myung-won looked unhappy. Maybe it’s because he’s about to go into a dungeon where some passerby blamed him for his work and it might be dangerous.
However, after that, Lee Myung-won acted quite politely.
“What’s your name?”
“I’m Choi Ga-hyun. This is….”
“Okay, you two. Please listen to me from now on.”
Lee Myung-won said as he crumpled his gloves off his hands and put them into his pocket.
“When my boss comes, I will try to do my best to do what I am in charge of, but I can’t ignore the loss of life, so you must tell him that I had entered the dungeon with you. I’ll be writing an apology letter anyway, but it’s still better than not telling him at all.”
He had a rather unlucky tone, but Baek Tae-beom nodded innocently. He must be impatient to save the young man’s dongsaeng quickly.
Could it be that you are empathizing as an older brother yourself?
I glanced at Baek Tae-beom’s expression. His golden eyes were trembling.
You live in this world so innocently, that you don’t get hurt by it. I clicked my tongue briefly and looked at Lee Myung-won again.
“First of all, this dungeon is a field-type dungeon.”
“Unlike a scenario-type dungeon with forced orders, this is a dungeon in which you can go in or out at any time. If you catch solely the boss, the dungeon collapses.”
“Then we’ll have to try to rescue the survivors first.”
Baek Tae-beom said calmly. Lee Myung-won nodded.
“And since monsters can come out as well, the monsters at the entrance should be sorted out first.”
“You can’t stay away from my side.”
Thinking about how to stay away, I nodded my head outwardly. I was thinking of leaving the rescue of the survivors to the two and looking for something else.
And that is, the <Magical Conch Shell> that Lee Myung-won originally had in the novel.
It may seem like a trivial item because of its name, but the true value of <Magical Conch Shell> lies in its ability to make predictions. Once a year, when asked a question that could distinguish between right and wrong, it made a prediction with an answer of ‘yes’ or ‘no.’ The content of the prophecy was valid for one year from the time the question was asked.
I was going to ask every year whether Baek Tae-beom would destroy this world with the item. This issue was important to me as well because if the world is destroyed, I will die too.
“Well then, let’s go in.”
As soon as I entered the cave-like entrance of the dungeon, a cold energy swept over me.
[You have entered a dungeon that has just opened.]
[Dungeon <Silent Oasis>]
[Survive in a dark cave with only the sound of water dripping from the stalactites.
A special item is hidden.]
After all, the <Magical Conch Shell> came from here.
Convinced by that, I wrinkled my eyebrows at the messages that popped up one after another.
[You have entered channel #643nj5. Current number of spectators: 2]
[Since there are more than two spectators who have entered the channel, you can use the <Constellation Communication Net>.]
‘… Constellation Communication Net?’
What’s with this stupid name?
It is a description that has never appeared in the original. That is because the novel has never been developed from the point of view of a constellation.
Judging from the fact that there are two spectators, it seems that Lee Myung-won’s constellation and I are in.
‘Is it like a chat?’
I tried sending a random message.
[CH.#643nj5/One Who Knows The Fall]: MAMUㅡHHOYA31ㅣ
[CH.#643nj5/One Who Knows The Fall]: Hello?
[CH.#643nj5/One Who Knows The Fall]: Anyone there?
But there was no answer from the other party.
“Hyung, what are you doing?”
I shook my head nervously and followed Lee Myung-won ahead of me. At the same time, I opened the shop.
‘There was something I had seen in advance….’
I couldn’t hide behind Baek Tae-beom forever, so I needed a weapon too.
[Thorn Staff of the Guilty E]
[It is said that if the name of the person who bears sin is called, death will return. New skills may be acquired when used. (Cannot be duplicated)]
[Price: 7,500 coins
Would you like to purchase this item?
( Yes / No)]
Since I am both an Awakened and a constellation, I could have bought items used by ordinary Awakened people, but what I chose was a ‘toy’ in the constellation-only shop.
The reason for saying that it’s a toy was simple. The constellations do not use these things themselves, and after buying them, they just throw them away to their contractors as if they were just playing around.
But I needed the toy.
This <Thorn Staff of the Guilty> was a weapon used by one of the minor characters of the novel. Of course, the words used in the description were grand, and the character died quickly after using this weapon only a few times, but the ability was worth it.
[Purchased the Thorn Staff of the Guilty E.]
[Remaining coins: 400]
Why do the coins feel like a salary?
A penny or two, like a salary that isn’t spent with much but runs out in an instant….
The cane with the decoration that looks like a skull wearing a laurel crown came into my hand. As I swung it lightly a few times, a notification window popped up.
[A new skill has been acquired.]
[Skill: Thorn of Sin]
[I bind the enemy with the thorn that carries their sin. Depending on the type of enemy, the properties of the shock that can be given to the enemy vary. (Can be used when the correct weapon is equipped.)]
And just as I turned the corner, a monster popped out. Lee Myung-won shouted.
Baek Tae-beom held my shoulder and stepped back. As we distanced ourselves, a dazzling light wrapped around Lee Myung-won’s hand. Lee Myung-won took a stance as if he were shooting an arrow without a bow, then grabbed an arrow-shaped light and pulled his arm back, and released it. Arrows poured out at the monster in an instant.
