Chapter 36. Balance (2)
I looked up at him in disbelief. Why is someone who will set up the guild that will rank second in the future, next to Hansung, the No. 1 guild, here? But what was even more shocking was what I saw next, the two men who were following behind Oh Kwon-hyuk.
They both looked at me in surprise.
“H-hey, that guy…!”
It was Yoo Jin-woo and Kim Yong-tae, who openly tried to stab Baek Tae-beom in the back.
Why the hell are these guys here? At the words of Yoo Jin-woo, who pretended to know me, Lee Myung-won asked in a puzzled voice.
“Are you acquaintances?”
“…We’ve met before, but I can’t say we’re on good terms.”
But the problem now was not them, but the man in front of me.

[Title: One Who Consumed The Darkness

And at the moment that followed, a large hand was approaching in front of my eyes. I only blinked for a moment, but in an instant, the hand grabbed my collar. My body was lifted before I was able to resist. I gasped at the sensation of being strangled and kicked Oh Kwon-hyuk’s body with my legs, but he didn’t budge.
“All of a sudden— what are you doing, keuk…!”
“Stop what you are doing now!”
Lee Myung-won shouted in surprise, but the hand holding my collar did not loosen. Oh Kwon-hyuk lifted me up and looked straight into my eyes. His black eyes were empty, to the point of being disgusting. And the moment I thought my heart was sinking-
[The language of another world covers your eyes.]
[‘Balance’ used towards you has been nullified.]
[The constellation, ‘One Who Knows The Fall’ is synchronized with the body.]
The moment my collar was released, I had no choice but to fall to the ground. I groaned from the feeling of somnolence. I held my neck and sighed. This damn bastard. I knew this would happen. My head throbbed continuously.
“Didn’t I tell you not to use that skill?”
When I came to my senses, Lee Myung-won was standing up and shouting at Oh Kwon-hyuk.
“Let’s set this straight. You almost killed a man just now. There is a limit to how much I can tolerate even if it’s you.”
However, when I looked up and saw Oh Kwon-hyuk’s face, he wore a rather bewildered expression. His mouth was slightly lowered, but I could see.
Oh Kwon-hyuk, who would later lead the Goblin Guild, was described as a silent and huge beast-like person, and I could see why. The height and physique of the celebrity were like that of a black goblin, and his blunt face was fierce-looking.
I now realized what he just did to me. Oh Kwon-hyuk used the skill, <Balance> on me. A very subjective skill that weighs the opponent’s soul to determine whether they will be beneficial or harmful to you.
Seeing his alarmed reaction, it seems that the skill did not work properly on me because I was a constellation.
Oh Kwon-hyeok reached out to me again, and Lee Myung-won struck his hand ferociously.
“Don’t touch him. Are you okay, Choi Ga-hyun-ssi?”
“Ah… I’m alright.”
“Didn’t I tell you to say you are not okay at times like this?”
I smiled vaguely at Lee Myung-won’s words. That’s because, similar to Lee Myung-won’s constellation, Oh Kwon-hyeok’s constellation is also an existence that I do not want to lose.
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: Didn’t I tell you to be careful? Look who isn’t being careful all the time. How can you live in this harsh world without me?]
He said that he was a person and a constellation but not a nanny, however, it seemed he did not realize that he was certainly acting like a nanny. I took Lee Myung-won’s helping hand and stared at Kim Yong-tae and Yoo Jin-woo, who were basically hiding behind Oh Kwon-hyuk.
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: Who are those kids?]
[CH. Personal/One Who Knows The Fall: They are… ugly things.]
[CH. Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: What are you going to do now? You aren’t with your lover. Are you going to go in?]
[CH. Personal/One Who Knows Fall: How many times do I have to say we aren’t lovers?]
[CH. Personal/One Who Knows The Fall: And I have to go in. What can I do? This is my chance to make even more money.]
It bothered me that there was unusual movement in this dungeon, but I did not hesitate because there was still time until the monster incident would occur.
