Chapter 72. Suspicious (2)
This became natural now. Baek Tae-beom naturally placed it in my hands and leaned over. I felt his breath coming closer.
“You just have to stick to my side, Hyung.”
I was actually thinking of doing that. I couldn’t confirm the development of the novel, and Kang Si-hoo’s current condition was unanticipated, so I had to stick close to Baek Tae-beom in order to preserve my lifeline.
First, I had to check my skills.
I scrolled down while looking at the window that appeared in front of me.
[You can select and sponsor an awakened person. You must sponsor at least 1 coin to do that.]
[Skill: Soul’s Sanctuary]
[Moves you to a place of your own.]
[Skill: Thorn of Sin]
[I bind the enemy with the thorn that carries their sin. Depending on the type of enemy, the properties of the shock that can be given to the enemy vary. (Can be used when the correct weapon is equipped.)]
Thorn of Sin is a skill that can no longer be used, so it has been completely removed from the skill window.
[Skill : Hand of the Golden Sun]
[You can use the power of the sun to fire arrows. The strength of the force depends on the constellation’s ability.]
[Skill: Eye of the Dead]
[By borrowing the power of the dead, you can properly see through the state of others. The strength of its ability depends on the constellation’s ability.]
Immediately after, I checked the gloves I was wearing and their condition.
[Star Gloves of Aquarius A]
[Gloves for the guide of the new star. It increases defense and destructive power, and new skills may be acquired when used. (Cannot be duplicated)]
There’s basically a passive ability that increases defense, so I used the item in hopes of getting defense skills when I use this item.
[A new skill has been acquired.]
[Skill: Falling Stars]
[Pours out stars to block an opponent’s attack. Cannot be used consecutively. (Can be used when equipped with the correct armor.)]
It was an item that gave me better skills than I thought. It was written on the A-grade clothing that it’ll block the opponent’s attack, so it was clear that it wouldn’t budge in any fire.
I placed the staff, which Baek Tae-beom had given me, on the floor. The staff, large enough to fit in my hand, was like a weapon made just for me.
It’s a crafted weapon, so I think we should recruit whoever made this as soon as possible.
With that in mind, I checked the information window of the acquired skill after using the item.
[You have acquired a new skill.]
[Skill : Condemned]
[Judge the opponent. (Can be used when the correct weapon is equipped.)]
‘Why are you doing this?’
Was that the end of the description? I examined the staff and looked down at it with suspicion. I don’t think Baek Tae-beom would have given me something strange, but….
“Where did you get this from?”
Baek Tae-beom blinked at me. He had a nonchalant expression.
“Is there something wrong?”
It was a problem because it seemed too unusual. Baek Tae-beom realized my serious expression.
“Lee Myung-won-ssi… It came out of the box he gave me.”
“It was an unnecessary gift from his constellation, random things appeared inside of it… I’m guessing it was a box.”
“Something good came out of it so I thought that I should give it to Hyung someday and kept it in my inventory.”
[Ch.Personal/One Who Seeks to Avoid The Fall: Wait.]
[Ch.Personal/One Who Seeks to Avoid The Fall: Apollo?]
[The constellation, ‘One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun’ does not respond and looks at a distant mountain.]
[CH.Personal/One Who Seeks to Avoid The Fall: Did you open a random box?]
[CH.Personal/One Who Seeks to Avoid The Fall: No, did you use the random box? Did you make your own contractor do it too? How long have you been doing this?]
[CH.Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: That….]
[CH.Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: Is that really important?]
[CH.Personal/One Who Seeks to Avoid The Fall: Don’t you know it’s a gimmick?]
[CH.Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: Even though people know it’s a gimmick, there are times when they do it anyway.]
[CH.Personal/One Who Seeks to Avoid The Fall: You are not one of those people. You’re a constellation.]
[CH.Personal/One Who Seeks to Avoid The Fall: You still have a lot of money left, right? Do you buy those things all the time? You must be happy. Why don’t you donate some to your son?]
[CH.Personal/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun: I have no son.]
[CH.Personal/One Who Guides The Dead: Sometimes.]
[CH.Personal/One Who Guides The Dead: You have to walk a fixed path. There are times when you have to do it.]
[CH.Personal/One Who Seeks to Avoid The Fall: How much did you spend on that?]
[The constellation, ‘One Who Guides The Dead’ is not responding. 404 Not Found.]
Don’t send out weird messages.
“Why? Is it bad?”
“No, no. I was just asking where it came from.”
I hurriedly excused myself and sighed. I patted Baek Tae-beom on the shoulder as he was still looking at me worriedly, and approached Lee Myung-won, who looked at me.
“Now that we’re ready, let’s enter.”
