Chapter 50. Tiger (2)
As I was about to check my phone, I blinked my eyes at the window that just popped up.
[<Soul’s Sanctuary> has been upgraded. Since a certain number has been achieved, it is possible to connect to a new device. Synchronize?
( Yes / No )]
Do you want to update your phone? It was like that. I instinctively pressed yes without feeling uncomfortable because it appeared so naturally.
Then, my phone’s screen flashed, and a message notification window popped up.
[Upgrade is complete. New synchronization is complete. The skill update for ‘One Who Wants To Avoid The Fall’ is over.]
[↓New Update Items↓]
[※Random box for limited paid small constellations※ Scroll down right now↓↓↓]
[Finally! Daily Attendance Service is available for low-grade constellations! You get 100 coins every time you join once a day?!]
[At this price, this ideal performance equipment for your very own contractor… Read more]
[Easy, recognizable grading service has arrived! ▷ Check it out in your status window now ◁]
I stared dumbfounded at the continuous pop-up service windows. And calmly organized them one by one.
“I don’t even know… It said it was a skill update.”
“What are you, really?”
I know, I know. I answered Apollo’s words dryly and opened my status window.
[Constellation : One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall]
Coins possessed : 400
Contractor : Dynamic Baek Tae-beom
Class : F Class
Skill List – Open]
I thought it was a really ugly status window. I wasn’t even E-class, but F-class. F-class hunters don’t even give them a glance. As I looked at my phone and smiled, Apollo looked at me strangely.
By the way, his title is ‘Dynamic’. What kind of dungeon did you clear to get something like that?
[※Contractor streaming service is available on mobile phone at any time because it is connected to a new device.※]
Yes, this update is good. According to Apollo, I’ve been left behind for around two years, but it was true that I felt like it was just yesterday that the message came to my mind, as well as when I was stabbed with a knife and mocked for being dead.
I turned on the Contractor Streaming Service with a light heart. Baek Tae-beom’s younger brother must be doing well, so nothing must have happened.
Yeah, maybe I was the one who prevented the Fall, didn’t I? I’ll have to check Baek Tae-beom’s condition and reconfirm his fate with the conch.
But what reflected on the phone screen was bright red blood.
At first, I thought maybe I was holding the screen wrong. But only after I saw the red liquid trickling down from Tae-beom’s cheek, I felt something was wrong. His hair had grown pitch black within the two years, and his golden eyes were more ferocious than a single beast.
Baek Tae-beom with an apathetic face was punching people in what I believed to be a department store. They were dressed in red, and I knew it was a guild’s uniform and I thought I could guess the guild’s name.
Why is this guy beating up the Red Apple Guild?
The Red Apple Guild was a guild at the opposite point of Kang Si-hoo and was definitely one of the vicious groups that Kang Si-hoo disbanded.
But why is Baek Tae-beom beating these guys as if he were just splitting an apple?
Baek Tae-beom in the novel was definitely a bad guy. The reason why the Red Apple Guild, made up of chaos, lasted for a long time was that Baek Tae-beom worked behind the scenes for them. So, this scene was rather refreshing.
Really, did Baek Tae-beom change his mind?
Fortunately, it seems that I was not a very important person to Baek Tae-beom. Still, I thought that we had become closer because we had been doing this and that together for about a few months, but somehow, I was a little upset and saddened. It felt as if I picked up an abandoned baby bird, fed it, and raised it, but as soon as it was able to fly, it left without even looking back.
“But what do I do….”
While muttering like that, I looked at the screen closely with a sense of déjà vu.
Baek Tae-beom slowly turned his gaze. To a space where no one will be, to the space I was looking from. Blood-soaked black hair and bright golden eyes were so clear. It looked like they were in a terrible state, but they were so beautiful with the intention to overpower someone.
[Your contractor makes eye contact with you.]
And when I realized something was wrong, I screamed and threw my cell phone away.
“Who is that!”
“What do you mean who is that, it’s your contractor!”
“I didn’t raise such a thing! I have never raised a tiger like that!”
[Your contractor calls the constellation, ‘One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall’.]
I screamed once more.
