Chapter 63. Ga-hyun Guild (3)
“Hyung, please join my guild.”
“Don’t be silly.”
“My house is so much better than a dorm like this.”
“I’ll provide you with all the lodging and meals. I will also give you a salary. I’ll protect you. I’ll be with you 24/7. Hyung, you said you would stay by my side. How can you do this? We just made a promise. I’ll stay with you forever.”
Baek Tae-beom persistently followed me and spoke constantly. He also noticeably glared at the secretary who was guiding me. It was as if sparks were about to burst out of his eyes. As I grabbed his sleeve and warned him not to do anything, he looked at me again and said sadly.
“Who would answer no to something that’s free?”
“It’s free from me too, Hyung. I want you to have it.”
“How can you say such a thing so casually?”
His personality had changed a lot, but when I stroked his hair nonchanantly, Baek Tae-beom’s face contorted as if he liked it. I smoothed out the wrinkles on his forehead and gently rubbed the wrinkled area between his eyebrows with my fingers.
“You shouldn’t say that to just anyone.”
“Is Hyung just anyone? You’re my conste….”
I put my hand on Baek Tae-beom’s mouth and sent a message telling him to shut up.
[The constellation, ‘One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall’ tells Baek Tae-beom that he will scold him if he does not keep quiet.]
Baek Tae-beom’s eyebrows drooped.
In the meantime, We had already arrived at the dormitory chosen by Lee Myung-won. No. 666. Baek Tae-beom grumbled as he looked at the number on the door plate, saying that it shouldn’t be something so ominous like this.
“You can use this dorm. If you need anything else, please use the phone inside.”
Although I did not officially decide to enter the Hansung Guild, Lee Myung-won said he would provide a dormitory for me first, telling me to think about it slowly. There were also restaurants, separate fitness facilities, swimming pools, and various other facilities, and he told me to use them as I pleased.
His response to my question about why he wanted me to join his guild was straightforward. He planned on using the fact that I was the first hunter to be deemed unmeasurable to defeat the other guilds they were against. I couldn’t figure out what Lee Myung-won was thinking until I saw that my story was all over the Internet.
This is definitely the Hansung Guild’s play, Baek Tae-beom used his strength. I turned off my cell phone and laughed. I saw all kinds of speculation. ‘Isn’t it because my power is too weak to measure?’
It reached the point where I was being contacted by my old classmates. You guys didn’t even know I was dead, and you only call me now at times like this? This was ridiculous.
“Lee Myung-won-ssi thinks of me a lot, though.”
Just as I was about to open the door, Baek Tae-beom, who had a stiff expression, grabbed my wrist.
“I think of you too.”
“…Alright, so can you let go of me?”
“If I could tell you how much I thought of you—”
“Let’s go in and talk. Alright?”
“Then, join a guild first.” “I will join any guild but your guild.” “How could you do that?” “Of course, I can do that.” “I don’t know what Hyung is thinking, but please move into my house so I can protect you…” After arguing over and over by the door, I was finally able to enter the accommodation. And I was astounded.
“It’s pretty good, right?
There was a window with a pleasant view of the outside, a wooden dining table in front of it, a kitchen lined with lights, and a rug under the sofa on one side. The cushions placed for the interior were cute, and the wallpaper and ceiling were neatly painted white, so it felt like I was in a model house rather than a dormitory.
When I thought of the apartment I used to live in, or even my <Soul’s Sanctuary>, I thought that it couldn’t be better than this. If I could, I wanted to take this place into my Soul’s Sanctuary.
