Chapter 4. Gold (2)
It would have been nice if this had changed things, but it didn’t.
Time passed quickly.
I wasn’t hungry, but I slept like crazy. Twenty hours have passed, yet the situation didn’t improve in the slightest. Then, the phone light flickered.
The child, who was in the Ahjussi’s arms, cried with a whimper.
“Dad, I’m hungry….”
“I’m sorry. Hang on a little bit, okay? The firefighters will be here in no time.”
However, since the dungeon has already been created, there was no way in from the outside, unless something special happened. Anyone would know that this situation was hopeless.
Above all, the dungeon in which we are now confined, <Little Purgatory>, is a ‘scenario’ dungeon. In the first place, scenario-type dungeons cannot be entered from outside.
There are only two cases in which someone can access the dungeon you have entered from the outside. First, when the dungeon is reopened because all internal personnel are dead, or when the dungeon is converted to a cleared dungeon.
‘Damnit. What the hell can I do?’
Still, Baek Tae-beom spoke to me in the corner, maybe he felt sorry for me.
“Should I lend you my shoulder?”
“No, it’s okay.”
“Even though I look like this, I am strong enough that you can lean on me.”
What does it mean that you ‘look like this’? You look strong no matter who looks at you, even by just looking at those broad shoulders. However, not wanting to say anything more, I buried my face in his shoulder without a word.
“Daddy… I’m hungry. I’m so, so hungry….”
“My daughter, let’s think about what to eat when we go out.”
“Can’t we just eat now? I’m very, very, very hungry… .”
But the conversation I heard was strange. There was something uncomfortable about hearing the child’s whining. When I looked up again, my eyes met Baek Tae-beom.
Am I mistaken? It was only a moment when I thought so.
“Can’t we just eat dad?”
“What? Wait, huck…!”
A terrible situation was unfolding as I turned my head urgently. The child opened her mouth wide enough to swallow the Ahjussi’s head.
“Euak, Ah…! Ugh…!”
I could feel the color draining from my face. When I hurriedly got up, Baek Tae-beom supported me and stuck me close to his back. It was not enough for the child to devour her father’s head, so she bowed down and continued to eat his scattered body.
The more it ate, the more the horns on the child’s head seemed to grow as its wings spread out from her back. It was a perfect demon.
The old man who was watching the scene trembled and collapsed. I felt like I was going to faint when I saw the ridiculous situation happening right in front of me.
[The constellation, ‘The One Who Knows The Fall’ is synchronized with the body.]
But if I passed out here, I would surely only be the prey of that demon. I grabbed Baek Tae-beom’s wrist.
“Now. We have to kill it quickly!”
“Ha, but, how…”
“I will draw its attention, so you attack from behind.”
I don’t know why I said that with such confidence, but after I finished speaking, I let go of Baek Tae-beom’s wrist and slowly approached the demon. Blood dripped from the corner of the child’s mouth as it ate, and its wings flapped on its back.
Its eyes were torn vertically and smiling, and as soon as his eyes met mine, he tilted his head sideways.
“Are you hungry?”
It was damn terrifying. But strangely, I didn’t tremble.
“Did you learn proper etiquette just to eat on the floor that way?”
“Yes, I am human. I don’t know why you’re doing this but look at this. Yes?”
I turned on the flash on my phone and shook it wildly in front of the demon.
“It’s blinding, isn’t it? It bothers me, it’s…Argh!”
As the demon rushed to me at once, I got startled and fell backward. Still, I shoved my cell phone into the demon’s mouth and shouted at Baek Tae-beom.
However, at the same time as I spoke, Baek Tae-beom rushed at the demon, but was hit by the tail that stood behind the devil’s back and flew away at once. I screamed and spat out at random words.
“Aren’t you awakened?!”
“There’ll be skills, skills! Use your skills! It will be there?!”
“S-skills… What, what is…!”
The sound of my cell phone being crushed rang in the demon’s mouth. I screamed in horror.
“I’m not even done with the installment plan, you son of a bitch!”
But it wasn’t the time to be worrying about phones. The thing I need to worry about the most now is my body. If things go on like this, it is only a matter of time.
Then, I suddenly remembered a trick.
[The constellation, ‘The One Who Knows The Fall’ asks Baek Tae-beom to make a contract with him.]
[The constellation, ‘The One Who Knows The Fall’ warns Baek Tae-beom that if he doesn’t sign a contract with him, he will seriously injure his nose.]
[The constellation, ‘The One Who Knows The Fall’ shouts at Baek Tae-beom.]
“I, there… What kind of window is in front of me right now…?”
“Just do it! I don’t know what it is, but just do it!”
I sent a message to Baek Tae-beom and shouted.
I never dreamed that I would make a contract with the man who will someday destroy the world, but it was still better than dying like this.
[Baek Tae-beom accepts the contract of the constellation, ‘The One Who Knows The Fall.’]
[You have a new contractor.]
[From now on, you share a part of your feelings with the contractor]
[Congratulations! 5,000 coins will be given to you who succeeded in the first contract.]
At the same time, I desperately opened the store page and bought an item and threw it into Baek Tae-beom’s hand right before it reached to rip off the demon’s head.
[You sponsored an item to your contractor.]
And the dazzling trajectory of the sword cut the demon’s throat. Baek Tae-beom looked surprised as he had swung the sword without realizing it. The moment the demon was cut, the blood that had been strewed on me, quickly turned to dust, and disappeared.
[Congratulations on clearing the dungeon! The rewards have been distributed.]
This crazy world.
I muttered curses, as I looked at Baek Tae-beom, who was currently supporting me.
