Chapter 29. Cry of the Wolf (3)
Do you know the story of <Alice in Wonderland>?
Just like a scene in the book, it felt as if I was watching Alice drink a strange potion and grow bigger in front of my eyes. The gigantic wolf that filled the room wasn’t blonde, nor was he wearing a blue apron dress, but instead, he was staring at us with his ferocious red eyes flashing back and forth and his tongue fluttering between his sharp teeth.
When we met each other’s eyes, we all avoided the area. Immediately, a large forefoot slammed down on the spot we were on before, creating a dent.

However, binding it with my skill wasn’t enough. The monster grabbed the thorns wrapped around its arm and pulled it apart as if it felt ticklish. His blood was dripping in the process, but he didn’t seem to care. Lee Myung-won took advantage of that and fired an arrow.
But its skin was so tough that the arrow could not penetrate beneath the surface. And it was easily broken by the wolf’s simple shrug.
“What do I do?”
“Its skin is too hard to pierce.”
“I’ll give it a try.”
Baek Tae-beom said while fixing his sword. And before we could even stop him, he ran out. He ducked and dodged away the wolf’s front paws, swung with agile movements, dug in, and slashed his legs deeply. The wolf howled loudly and stomped its feet.
Bears tore people apart, Baek Tae-beom tore wolves….
Whenever there was a bang, my body staggered to the point where it was hard to stand properly.
“Hold onto the wall— no, damn it….”
Lee Myung-won, who was unable to keep his balance, rolled over. Baek Tae-beom endured the tremendous vibrations with his sword stuck in the wolf’s leg. Naturally, I had no choice but to roll around like a ping-pong ball being hit by a professional player. Every time my head collided with the wall, it felt painful and made me dizzy.
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: You idiot! Your head is going to be the first to break!]
This constellation is uselessly nagging. He’s not even my constellation. I was barely able to shove my staff into the floor and raised myself above the vibrating ground. Lee Myung-won fell down unsightly, and Baek Tae-beom….
Tae-beom’s yellow eyes, drenched with blood, turned towards me.
He let go of the sword he was holding and hurriedly leaned down. In an instant, a huge front paw brushed over the spot where Baek Tae-beom had been. A few strands of his hair fluttered. And the werewolf growled as if he was going to die from irritation from the three little humans tormenting him.
We can’t just keep going like this.
“How dare you, insignificant little things!”
“Aren’t you too unnecessarily big?”
The werewolf turned to me as I yelled out loud. I lifted my staff again.

The werewolf only brushed off the thorns with his hands as if it were bothersome, but he did not hesitate to move. Suddenly, a large front paw moved, and a shadow fell over me. As I stood still without any resistance, the hem of my clothes got caught on his claws and my body was lifted.
I heard Baek Tae-beom scream at the same time as my body felt like it was being carried up. The large wolf’s face appeared in front of me. It was funny how I did not feel any fear.
The monster frowned.
“What is something like you doing here….”
“Let go of my hyung!”
“Baek Tae-beom-ssi, don’t!”
However, the werewolf shook off the two men clinging to him as if it were bothersome and opened his mouth. When I saw the structure of the wolf’s mouth, I couldn’t help but marvel.
Because the smell was no joke.
The monster swallowed me without chewing.
The sensation of sliding down an esophagus was not as pleasant as I expected. Slash, I landed in a bodily fluid that stung my skin. I was barely able to come back to my senses as I stood up with my staff. I then heard a pounding.
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: How can you say that in this situation?]
“Well, I don’t really have a sense of crisis as a constellation.”
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: There’s a lot of commotion going on outside! My contractor is calling me restlessly!]
“It’s nice to be close to each other. But, when would I ever get to go into someone’s body like this?”
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: Did you actually plan to do this from the beginning?]
That was obvious.
I splashed through the supposed gastric juice, which the rotten smell seems to have come from. In the middle, things like skulls blocked the front, but after hitting them away with my staff, I approached the stomach wall.
“How else would I be able to catch such a large monster if not like this?”
