Chapter 61. Ga-hyun Guild (1)
The bracelet given to me by the receptionist was like a smartwatch, consisting of a solid rubber band and a round screen. As soon as I put it on my wrist, I felt a slight tingling sensation, and letters started appearing on the screen.
“This device is a kind of Identification Card that Ga-hyun-nim can use when working as a hunter. If you do not have it with you when entering a dungeon or are in a special situation, you could get in trouble, so we recommend that you always wear it. Also, in case of an emergency, the association can send an emergency notification, so please check the screen if you feel a vibration.”
My wrist felt uncomfortable, so I repeatedly turned my arm around and glanced at my wrists. Aren’t these no different from shackles? Even though I had read the novel and knew about it, it was a different feeling to experience it directly.
<As a fragment of a star, your grade cannot be measured.>
<Your existence is different from ordinary people.>
And the reason I got this grade, it seemed, was because I was a constellation. Although my class was only F, seeing as I am a constellation, these things were bound to happen. If I had known this would happen from the beginning, I would not have registered my class at all.
[CH.Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun : Can your grade really not be measured?]
[CH.Personal/One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall : How the hell did you know that?]
[CH.Personal/One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall : Anyhow, that’s right.]
[CH.Personal/One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall : And don’t keep learning strange things.]
[CH.Personal/One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall : What should I do now?]
[CH.Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun : What should you do?]
[CH.Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun : Well, my son, you must be at my level to understand what you should do next.]
[CH.Personal/One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall : Didn’t you just say that you would never have a poor child like me???]
“Hyung, are you done?”
“Uh. I think so.”
“Then let’s go quickly.”
“What? Why are you in such a hurry?”
Baek Tae-beom gave a slightly troubled expression. Naturally, the corners of his eyes drooped down. I resisted the instinctive desire to sweep that expression away. I kept wanting to treat him like a puppy.
“An article is going around.”
“Aha, an arti… What? An article?”
I widened my eyes at the absurd remark. Baek Tae-beom held his cell phone out as I looked up at it. There was an article written about me.
“World’s first unmeasurable hunter appears in Korea… What is this?”
I just got my ID, when did these crazy journalists check and report? When I clicked on it and checked the contents, there was only a title and no text. However, there was a problem, it was that a photo of me and Baek Tae-beom and my real name were exposed.
Now in the association, more and more people were checking the article and looking this way.
[CH.Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun : Please tell us how it feels to be a celebrity.]
[CH.Personal/One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall : Don’t pretend to be close to me.]
[The constellation, ‘One Who Guides The Dead’ barks as if laughing.]
[The constellation, ‘One Who Is More Dazzling than The Sun’ pushes him away as if he were a nuisance.]
[The constellation, ‘One Who Guides The Dead’ is thrown into a corner with a sad expression.]
“There’s a place we have to go to, so we need to move now.”
“Where are we going?”
Baek Tae-beom nodded at my question.
It was the headquarters of the Hansung Guild. After the difficult procedure, Lee Myung-won sat calmly where he led Baek Tae-beom and me.
“I didn’t think he was actually alive. Of course, I think Baek Tae-beom-ssi has already told me around 390 times that Choi Ga-hyun-ssi was alive, but there are things people have seen before their eyes that is different from reality. Do you know what I mean? Anyway, I understand why he didn’t allow a funeral, but there is something else I don’t understand. How the hell are you alive? How have you been in the meantime? I really don’t understand, Choi Ga-hyun-ssi. Will you answer me?”
“Your coffee is overflowing.”
Lee Myung-won remained quiet for a while, and then turned to the coffee pot on the table. However, the coffee had already overflowed and stained the papers on the desk.
Apollo clicked his tongue.
[CH.Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun : Stupid.]
Lee Myung-won pushed the papers dripping with coffee to one side one by one and put on his glasses.
“You’re not a ghost, are you?”
“I’m a little weak with ghosts and zombies….”
“Unfortunately, I’m not either of them.”
“Though vampires are fine.”
“I’m sorry, but it’s not like that.”
Lee Myung-won slurped his overflowing cup of coffee. I calmly got up from my seat.
“Then what are you?”
“What kind of person dies and returns to life!?”
Suddenly, I began yelling too.
“Then what do I look like to you?!”
“Then I’m human!”
“But it isn’t that simple!”
“This world is filled with things we don’t understand, but at least one person could die and be revived somehow!”
How am I alive? I’m a constellation. That’s why I’m alive. I wasn’t even alive; I was just resurrected. Haha. How the hell do I say that I also knew his constellation?
Baek Tae-beom noticed it himself, but if I told others, it was a story that most people would not believe.
Lee Myung-won who pouted for a moment sat back down on his seat as if he had understood my words. He then took a deep breath and buried his face in his hands.
“Anyway… I’m glad you’re alive, no, that you resurrected…. This is something worth celebrating, so let’s celebrate it.”
