Chapter 55. Bodyguard (1)
[CH.Personal/The One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun : What was it you said? You still want to keep telling strange love stories?]
[CH.Personal/The One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun : Are you crazy?]
[CH.Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun : Do I look crazy? Huh? Doesn’t this situation make sense now?]
[CH.Personal/One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall : Please be quiet.]
[CH.Personal/One Who Leads The Dead : It is a spectacle.]
I wanted to bite my tongue and nose around. However, if I did that, Baek Tae-beom would seriously never leave me alone, so I could only change my clothes quietly. It had already been two hours. As if I were a doll, I was changed and decorated.
If the two other constellations hadn’t kept talking to me, I might have really gone crazy. It wasn’t a fashion show that I could hold out sober. The fact that I was the star of the show made me even more miserable. Baek Tae-beom looked at my clothes and said with a bright smile that they looked good on me.
“Now for the next outfit….”
“No, wait, wait, Beom-ah. Tae-beom-ah. Calm down and listen to me.”
I hurriedly grabbed Baek Tae-beom’s hand and hung onto it. There were already so many clothes that went on and off my body. Gloves, shoes, and even hair accessories. I felt like I would rather yell at the employee who put the pin through my bangs. Unfortunately, he didn’t do anything wrong, so I couldn’t.
“Are you going to buy all of these?”
“Are you only capable of saying ‘Yes, Hyung’?”
“You’re driving me crazy.”
Does he know how expensive the items I’ve worn and taken off are? The unique ability and price range of what I had just equipped was no joke.
[Star Gloves of Aquarius A]
[Gloves for the new star’s guide. It increases defense and destructive power, and new skills may be acquired when used. (Cannot be duplicated)]
[Black Band Suit B]
[Do you remember the songs sung by the Black Band? They were modeled after their suits. Raises defense and prevents vital points from being attacked once.]
[Caroler’s Black Shoes A]
[We played marches from time to time and shouted out loud for those to hear them. The person wearing these shoes can increase their movement speed and their evasion ability.]
At this point, I couldn’t help but wonder.
“Have you killed anyone?”
Baek Tae-beom blinked his eyes in bewilderment. I asked seriously.
“Have you ever killed someone and threw them into the sea or submerged them in cement?”
“Or do you think non-Awakened or hunters below C-class are useless and can die?”
“Hold on, Hyung. What are you thinking?”
I calmly buried my face in both hands. What am I thinking? I think you’ve become evil and made money bullying people. How else could you have gotten so much money?
“You’re not thinking strangely, are you?”
“That’s correct, I am having strange thoughts.”
“Because I was thinking I raised you really well even if it was only for a few months. But with this blood-stained money that came from slaughtering people….”
“Who said I ever killed anybody!”
Baek tae-beom grabbed my hands roughly and pulled them down. His face was flushed red and distorted as if my conclusion was unjust.
“Isn’t that the truth?”
“That isn’t true, Hyung. I haven’t changed that much compared to two years ago. Of course, there may be some things that have changed in your eyes, but….”
Baek Tae-beom glanced down sadly and blinked. Those voluminous eyelashes moved along. It seemed like I too was unknowingly captivated by that face.
Why is this rascal so uselessly handsome?
If you’re a villain, shouldn’t you have a wicked face just like one? I mean, why are you so handsome that you make people’s hearts weak and make them want to do anything for you?
“Still, that hasn’t changed. How could I kill people so recklessly?”
“Then… Let’s just get this one. Anything more will be burdensome.”
I spoke while looking down at the clothes I was wearing. Baek Tae-beom’s eyebrows twitched for a moment, but calmly returned to his original expression.
“Fine. If Hyung says so.”
Originally, the constellation was supposed to spoil their contractor, but this was the complete opposite. Just receiving this gave me a guilty conscience. Even more so when I saw the number 1.3 billion that popped up when I was calculating. I knew that it was easy for hunters to earn this much money, but I was still heartbroken.
I’ll work hard to make money and support you. However, I only have 500 coins. Isn’t there a problem with this? Where did the equity go wrong?
“I’ll attach a bodyguard to you instead.”
“You never know what will happen when you move by yourself.”
“You don’t have to do that….”
