Chapter 75. Tomb of the Awakened (3)
“Let’s go slowly! Short strides!”
I used my skills without even listening to what Kim Ki-won shouted.
[You used a skill. Skill: Condemned]
As soon as I used the skill, something slammed into the fanatic’s head who had just popped out of nowhere. When the sound of a musical instrument rang, the fanatic’s body collapsed helplessly to the floor, and became dust without getting back up again.
After I stared alternately at the piano that had suddenly fallen from the air and my staff, I sighed.
‘Yeah, let’s think positively….’
Perhaps it was because it came out of the random box, its performance wasn’t too bad. When I use the skill, it starts with something as small as a basketball, up to the piano earlier, and falls over the target’s head. I should have known since the skill’s description was so short.
Fortunately, Kang Si-hoo and Kim Ki-won seemed to have no idea. They simply said that I had an unusual skill.
“Slowly, proceed! I said!”
“Isn’t Kim Ki-won a bit late?”
With Kang Si-hoo in the middle, I was up in the front, while Kim Ki-won was at the back, but Kim Ki-won was having a bit of a hard time. After all, only the estimated grade of this dungeon was A. It was completely unreasonable to expect Kim Ki-won, who was B-Class and lacked many skills, to defeat monsters easily.
Kim Ki-won’s face was drenched with sweat. Even his clothes were torn in several spots due to the attacks of the fanatics. That was the problem for the association. They dress to look like they only wear uncomfortable clothes. It felt like some kind of over-packaging over junk food.
After hearing my words, Kim Ki-Won’s face contorted, as he started shouting at Kang Si-Hoo.
“You aren’t helping, what are you doing!”
“S-s… I am sorry, but….”
“You said not to go next to you, so… I did what you asked…?”
Glaring at Kang Si-hoo with a terrifying look, Kim Ki-won kept his mouth shut. Kang Si-hoo got more frightened and hid behind me.
The progress of the exploration cannot be deducted, and this situation had been repeating for a while. Actually, I don’t even need to explore.
‘But I can’t just say that I already know this dungeon….’
If I said I knew how to attack this dungeon, everyone would get suspicious. Even if the words around it work because of the ability of the skill, what would happen after was the problem.
“It appeared again!”
Kim Ki-won punched the fanatic, who suddenly jumped out. The fanatic, who was hit by his fist shrunk, takes a couple of steps backward then rushes in and kicks his head. I used the skill as it was towards the fanatics who were driven to the wall.
[You used a skill. Skill: Condemned]
Then, I covered my eyes as I watched the sink fall, smashing the fanatic’s head.
[CH.#990O3/One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall]: Isn’t there a problem with this thing?
[CH.#990O3/One Who Seeks To Avoid The Fall]: Why do they just fall down like this? Why doesn’t it do something cool?
[CH.#990O3/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun]: Why are you asking me for that?
Kang Si-hoo stuttered and said.
“You’re really strong, with what you do, yes….”
I wanted to refute that statement.
‘Why aren’t you being more arrogant when you’re stronger?’
Judging from the fact that he was disguising his name, it seems that he was also hiding his identity, and additionally, Kim Ki-won seemed to think that this man was a C-Class or lower hunter. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be treated like this.
Kang Si-hoo himself seemed to have no will to fight. No, rather than lacking the will to, it seemed that he didn’t feel the need to.
‘Because you have me?’
However, Kang Si-hoo was not someone who trusted others so easily. As the main character, even though he was warm-hearted, he was always calculative.
‘Did you decide to make friends with me?’
Do you think I’m gonna be your partner? I narrowed my eyes. However, if it was Kang Si-hoo, that is, if he had grown to this extent, he would know that I’m only depending on items.
‘Or you want to make connections with Baek Tae-beom….’
It was highly likely that Baek Tae-beom was involved. Until the mid-to-late half of <The Fall of Another World>, Kang Si-hoo tried to appease and persuade Baek Tae-beom somehow. He only changed his mind after the second half where he watched his colleagues die and the country go to ruin.
Either way, I was going to use Kang Si-hoo. But before that, you’ll have to take off that damn mask.
“Let’s go into this room, too.”
“Why do you keep going in and out of rooms?”
Kim Ki-won gasped for air as he spoke.
“Because the investigation comes first. You can’t just ignore it and pass by, can you?
When I opened the door, the same structure as before unfolded in front of my eyes. The dusty tables, chairs, vases, a dress with layers of gothic lace on the hem, and a partition covering the bed were lying on the floor.
Kim Ki-won sat down on the bed, full of concerns. As the dust rose, he stood up firmly, while coughing.
“Why are mobs that don’t even drop items popping out like this….”
“Then, there must be other items.”
Kim Ki-won started laughing as if he was full of energy.
“Hunter Choi Ga-hyun seems to be more optimistic than I had thought?”
“Is there anything good about thinking negatively?”
“As expected, the ungradable class is different no matter what, huh~ Do you think you’d be fine even if you fall into a fire pit?”
I let out a sigh. The frequency of quarrels seemed to be increasing. I had nothing to hold on to, so I wanted to hit him at the end of each sentence he let out.
‘Let’s be patient. Tae-beom learns from me.’
“Thank you for the compliment.”
