Chapter 27. Cry of the Wolf (1)
[You use a skill. Skill: Thorn of Sin]
[Activating Thorn of Sin.]
As soon as I shouted, Baek Tae-beom ran out, leaping forward. Then, he cut down the monster that was entangled in the thorns that couldn’t move properly. The monster split into two, at the same time it spewed out blood and disappeared to dust. Just like that, there were only a bunch of items left.
[Werewolf’s Skin E]
[The tough husk of a werewolf. It seems to be used as a material for something.]
Baek Tae-beom breathed roughly. I felt sorry because it seemed tough for him, but now was not the time to rest. I swung my staff at the monster that came running to me and smashed its head. Immediately after pulling back, a golden arrow flew and pierced the monster.
Lee Myung-won again stretched out his arm and shot an arrow at a new protruding monster. A ray of light burst with a sharp bang, leaving a clear trail. The monster with an arrow perforated in its forehead died quickly, fell forward, and turned to dust.
“Isn’t your stamina too weak, Baek Tae-beom-ssi?”
Lee Myung-won said. It may sound sarcastic at first glance, but his face was sincere. Baek Tae-beom lowered his head while supporting himself with his sword.
“If you rely too much on your skills, you won’t be able to move your body properly.”
[The constellation, ‘One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun,’ tells you that his contractor’s words are right.]
[CH. Personal/One Who Knows The Fall: Why did you say it like that? Just chat or something.]
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: Did you say you are unlucky to have someone like him right now?]
[CH. Personal/One Who Knows The Fall: So, did you just say that you’re unlucky?]
I ignored the chattering chat window and looked at Baek Tae-beom.
I thought the most urgent thing right now was not to rehabilitate Baek Tae-beom, but to find a way to somehow save his younger brother. Because the novel did not describe how, when, or at what point he died.
In the original novel, Yoo Jin-woo’s gang might have moved from one hospital to another, so moving to a good hospital was an urgent priority. Currently, the majority of hospitals are making a profit due to the flooding of monsters and dungeons.
So, I needed money to move hospitals and I also should contact Lee Myung-won from time to time.
We had to go through Lee Myung-won in order to enter the dungeon in a legal way without reporting that we were Awakened. Lee Myung-won seemed to be bothered, but he was persistent in expressing Baek Tae-beom’s situation, so he had no choice but to take us to the small dungeon.
Even now, Lee Myung-won’s secretary was waiting outside in case of any unforeseen circumstances. Even so…
‘Why do you seem so gloomy?’
After listening to Lee Myung-won’s advice on using skills, Baek Tae-beom’s face had turned darker, though he kept quiet. This was the third dungeon run, and the expression on his face was not good for the entire time.
Are you sick?
[The constellation, ‘One Who Knows The Fall’ is concerned about Baek Tae-beom.]
[The constellation, ‘One Who Knows The Fall’ tells Baek Tae-beom to go and rest if he is sick.]
Baek Tae-beom shook the windows that appeared in front of him and removed them with his hands as if they were annoying. And then he grabbed the sword again.
I didn’t get any good items in both the two dungeons we entered after <Little Purgatory>. Both were scenario-type dungeons with a low level of difficulty, so the total coins we got were only 3,000. There were no items either. However, this time it was a field-type dungeon.
The monsters that appeared were werewolves. The structure of the dungeon was also like a large cave, and it was difficult to find the right path as it was twisted in several branches, so we would have to go back and forth. However, Lee Myung-won was accustomed to such dungeons, so he quickly found a way and took the lead. The problem was Baek Tae-beom, who seemed to be losing his stamina.
I put my hand on Baek Tae-beom’s shoulder. When he slowly turned back at me, I was met with startled and surprised eyes, and they began to unravel docilely.
“Are you alright?”
“Ah, I’m fine.”
“You look tired. Why don’t you step back a little?”
Baek Tae-beom kept his lips together for a moment, then shook his head vigorously.
“I’m alright, really. I’ll be by your side.”
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: He’s stubborn]
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: I can tell just by watching him. He’s doing that because he wants you to like him.]
[CH. Personal/One Who Knows The Fall: What are you talking about?]
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: Don’t forget that I am the God of love.]
[CH. Personal/One Who Knows The Fall: I don’t think you’ve ever been in a proper relationship? You look like an old man trying to weave someone into a romantic relationship with another, one after another.]
I stopped pretending to be subservient to Apollo, knowing that constellations could not fight each other.
[CH: Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: You little….]
I snorted and looked at Baek Tae-beom’s information.
[Summary of Contractor Information.]
[Contractor – Baek Tae-beom Who Bent The Mist]
[Title: One Who Bent The Mist
Constellation: One Who Knows The Fall
Coins possessed: 21,100
Skills possessed: [Dark Sword Dance] [Hermit]
There are skills that have not been developed because the conditions have not been met. His current state is quite poor, it is recommended to rest first.]
I couldn’t help but frown. No matter how much Baek Tae-beom tried to hide it, his poor condition was revealed in notes like this. When my face became distorted, Baek Tae-beom became restless like a startled puppy.
