Hanging in there until the opportunity comes.
That was how Oh Ji-heon got through the crisis, and in fact, he took numerous opportunities with his endurance.
The brothers, who tried to remove him, burned their fingerprints and smashed their faces into an overseas workshop, and his father, who had tied a leash on him with a master’s relationship, dealt with him when he lowered his guard down.
The process has always been difficult, but as long as he holds on, he has a chance to turn around.
“Gi, Guild Master.
All the slush funds in warehouses around the country have been stolen……!”
“All the supervision and pledges in the warehouse are robbed.
Besides, as somebody snitched, the scene is messed up…….”
“The Hunter Association will investigate in a few days for illegal contracts.
It looks like someone reported to the upper ranks.
As the guild members continued to report, Oh Ji-heon looked blank without saying anything.
Hanging in there until the opportunity comes.
As always, he thought of the words, but this time it felt different.
Instead of being attacked by the outer walls of the castle that have been piled up for a long time, the ground itself has collapsed and cannot be helped.
This is the first time that the helplessness that has never been felt in the threat has hit Oh Ji-heon.
“……what happened to the Black Forest?”
“It’s…… they can’t help because the question arose by the technician hasn’t been investigated yet….”
Oh Ji-heon’s fist trembled at the vaguely trembling general manager’s answer.
He’s helplessly being attacked, but he hasn’t even figured out who he is.
If you take the opportunity and just hang in there longer, all his bases will collapse.
‘Let’s sort things out first.’
The slush fund can be handled by dealing with the books, and the workers cannot prove the manipulation of the documents, so it is not that serious.
‘The problem is the investigation coming from the Hunter association…….’
If it goes wrong, the guild can be dismantled and entered the Hunter prison, but this also has a way.
Oh Ji-heon, whose eyes sank coldly, looked at the general affairs officer who was calling here and there.
“Yes, yes, sir?”
Han Young-chul, the general manager at his real name called, suddenly looked at him with a surprised look.
“Go there for a few years.”
“What do you mean…….”
“I’ll give you fifty.
It’ll be about eight years, so go in for a while and come out.”
Han Young-chul’s eyes trembled at Oh Ji-heon’s words.
Hunter prison is different from ordinary prisons.
The meal is limited to one meal every two days, and the shackles with a built-in magic inhibitor and mental debuff are fitted 24 hours a day.
It is a facility that boasts a tremendous “rehabilitation” with a recidivism rate of less than 10 percent because the meaningless labor is given until they are exhausted to completely drain power.
“Guild master, I…….”
Who’s gonna take care of you if I go in? Don’t make things complicated for nothing, just go in quietly and come out.”
Han Young-chul’s face turned pale with Oh Ji-heon’s words.
He realized that he had no option to refuse.
“You should think about your family, too.
I’ll take good care of them, so go there for a moment.”
Han Young-chul’s hand trembled faintly at the sight of Oh Ji-heon, who was secretly pressing, and soon nodded.
“Yes, I’ll tell the vice master about it, so meet him and get ready.”
Han Young-chul, who bowed, staggered outside, and Oh Ji-heon, who looked back, frowned.
‘He was useful….
I can’t believe I’m using a guy who can use it for bigger things.
Oh Ji-heon, who was reminded of nearly 20 billion won in slush funds accumulated since the Protex Guild and collapsed workplaces, breathed out slowly.
I still have a chance.
After this incident……if contact with Hwang Young Group…….’
He wanted to negotiate in a more favorable situation, but now that it has become this way, he doesn’t have a choice.
Oh Ji-heon was thinking about making an appointment with Hwang Young group as soon as possible.
At Oh Ji-heon’s permission, a guild member came in with a strange look with an envelope.
“What’s going on?”
“There’s an envelope to you…… I brought it because the sender’s name was a little weird.”
“Who is it?”
“The…… Oh In-soo, the former guild…”
Oh Ji-heon, who woke up before they finish the words, took away the envelope, and his heart began to pound after checking the sender’s name.
Guild members quickly went out in case they were harmed, and Oh Ji-heon, who remained alone, opened the envelope and looked at the things inside.
What was in the envelope was a picture.
This is a picture of a dagger in a plastic pack that looks like a fish thorn with black blood on it.
Oh Ji-heon’s eyes widened and his whole body weakened after seeing the picture as if it had kept the evidence.
Oh Ji-heon, who hit his hips on the floor, stared at the picture falling.
A long time ago, with his father’s body, the dagger that had disappeared from the dungeon, or should have disappeared.
The only evidence in the world has reappeared before him.
“That’s ridiculous.… this is ridiculous…….’
This is also a clear trick.
They only created the same dagger that he used and buried it with blood in a plausible way to shake him.
He tried to think so, but Oh Ji-heon couldn’t take his eyes off the picture.
This is because the blood, which was solidified black, was exactly the same as his memory.
‘Is this possible by chance?’
What is the probability that blood sprayed randomly will be buried just like the dagger he removed?
In the face of the undeniable evidence, Oh Ji-heon came up with another possibility.
Gate and dungeon have yet to be explained, and the objects from the dimension pieces are also unknown.
“What if…… what was lost in the dungeon could come back through the fragments of a dimension?’
Then the dagger that he thought disappeared could appear in front of him again.
‘If that’s real, and it goes to the Black Forest…….’
At that moment, he will be listed as an unofficial rank and used in a more terrible form than alive.
Will I be able to hold out in that situation and seek opportunities?
Even if I hold out, he can’t end there if he’s going to bring all this.
Realizing that he had to finish in some form, Oh Ji-heon picked up a picture of the dagger with his trembling hands.
The guy couldn’t have sent such a picture without any reason.
He thought there would be a message and looked at it.
He found an address on the corner of the picture.
* * *
an abandoned factory.
It was one of the unforgettable places for Kang Yoo-sik, who was swept away by the gate wave and died due to a dispute over ownership.
Kang Yoo-sik looked still at the sight of the furnace emitting red light, and Cha Si-hyun, who stood next to him, asked vaguely.
“Will he really come?”
It’s not something he can see and pass.”
The dagger in the picture sent by Kang Yoo-sik was, of course, not a real dagger that killed Oh Ji-heon’s father.
However, the form was the same as Oh Ji-heon remembered because it was a dagger reproduced based on his memory.
‘I’ve been really struggling to figure it out before the return…….’
As he paid off his debts, he doggedly chased the traces that Oh Ji-heon had removed, and after he became a free man, he found out his memory by sticking to his side with the excuse of winning the seat.
It was dangerous enough to be caught dozens of times if the surrounding people were not on his side, but thanks to the experience, it was simple this time.
‘But the coordinator is better than I thought it would be.’
He asked for it because he thought she would be familiar with it, but he didn’t think it would perfectly recreate the shape of the dagger in his memory.
When Kang Yoo Sik is thinking that if he has time, he should suggest a production.
“…… he’s here.”
Cha Si-hyun muttered looking at the entrance of the factory.
Cha Si-hyun’s body melted into the air, and after a while, the entrance to the waste factory opened and Oh Ji-heon walked in.
The eyes have become bloodshot.
The all-back hair, which had always been perfectly turned over, was also disheveled, showing how much Oh Ji-heon suffered.
Oh Ji-heon opened his eyes wide after discovering Kang Yoo-sik.
How many enemies did he think of until he got here? He prepared to respond under any circumstances, assuming the worst enemies imaginable.
However, what appeared in front of Oh Ji-heon was standing a young boy who had never thought of it before.
“You look terrible.
You must have had a hard time?”
Kang Yoo-sik smirked at the sight and asked, and Oh Ji-heon clenched his fist tightly.
“You………what are you.
How the hell do you know that!”
Kang Yoo-sik looked at Oh Ji-heon, who was about to run toward him, with his chin on his hand.
“You really don’t know?”
“You must know, who can get a glimpse of the memory by using the scent of a dream without being caught.”
In fact, there was no such thing.
It’s just what he found out before the return.
However, Kang Yoo-sik looked at Oh Ji-heon like a fool and twisted his lips as if he really didn’t know.
This is because only then will the role of the play be determined.
The name of the most suspicious character popped up, and Kang Yoo-sik smirked.
Of course, it’s not because he got it.
Even before the return, the name of the person who actively cooperated came out just right this time again.
“So, you should have done it moderately.
How anxious you must have been if your men snitched?”
“Did you really manage all this?”
Kang Yoo-sik shrugged at Oh Ji-heon who couldn’t believe it.
“What matters is who did it and who’s behind it.
The important thing is that you’ve been completely eaten by me.”
Oh Ji-heon stared at Kang Yoo-sik’s words with a smile, and soon laughed.
“Yeah, that’s what it is.
Han Young-chul…… Did I prepare too explicitly? I’d better secretly prepared for the substitute next time.”
“I don’t think there’s any next time.”
Oh Ji-heon twisted his lips when Kang Yoo-sik said.
“That’s what I have to say.”
At the same time as Oh Ji-heon’s words, they felt people coming from all over the place, and the air around them began to change heterogeneously.
Magic squares installed throughout the abandoned factory collapsed, losing light, and various contact devices that were in the sleeves exploded.
Cha Si-hyun, who was hiding behind Kang Yoo-sik, also turned opaque, and Kang Yoo-sik’s eyes widened at the scene.
“It`s a complete barrier developed by the Black Forest.
The magic squares, the flow of mana, and the communicators in the range are all sealed off.”
An object that not only blocks all means of contact but also suppresses power.
Kang Yoo-sik made an incredible face about it, and Oh Ji-heon twisted his mouth.
“It’s a technology that’s not even known inside the Black Forest, but it’s been revealed first to those who’ve worked for decades.
That’s why you don’t know.”
“But you must have broken the Black Forest line too……?”
“How many years do you think I have worked with the Black Forest, and you don’t think I have a personal channel? It was a good try, but it didn’t finish well.”
Kang Yoo-sik took out a dagger from a plastic pack at Oh Ji-heon’s confident appearance.
“Can you handle it? As long as I show evidence and talk, they will betray you.….”
Oh Ji-heon smiled at Kang Yoo-sik’s embarrassed appearance.
“Because they’re all like me.”
It is forbidden in the Black Forest to make personal gains by killing clients, but that doesn’t mean everyone keeps it.
All those who captured the waste plant now were those people, and Oh Ji-heon secured the evidence and exploited them like a slave.
“The attempt was good.
I really thought everything was over…….”
Oh Ji-heon, who clenched his fist, approached Kang Yoo-sik.
“But the finish was too clumsy.
I think you were going to ask me for something because you called me separately…… You were too greedy.”
If he had prepared troops, he wouldn’t have died so vainly if he hadn’t met today.
Hanging in there until the opportunity comes.
Oh Ji-heon, who confirmed that the method was not wrong again, strengthened his body by using his physical strengthening skills.
“……You are right.”
Kang Yoo-sik looked at his scattered cell phone and said.
“I should have left my cell phone behind.”
There was a tremendous vibration that shook the entire waste plant, and Oh Ji-heon’s eyes widened.
Something hit the complete barrier outside with enormous force.
‘No other human being can’t be detected around……?’
A person who can approach from outside the range and shake the complete barrier like this.
Oh Ji-heon, who narrowed down the category, shouted urgently, recalling who Kang Yoo-sik was receiving attention from and the fact.
At the same time as Oh Ji-heon’s cry, huge mana exploded outside, and the skills and magic that were being prepared began to pour toward the abandoned factory.
The method that he baits himself with a body-enhancing skill, and then those who are not affected by a complete barrier bomb with all their mana and items.
It was an unexpected method because Oh Ji-heon puts himself first in any situation, and he almost suffered a similar defeat before the return.
He was ‘almost’ fallen for it.
The roof of the abandoned factory flew neatly in the aftermath of the explosion, and huge smoke swept the surrounding area with flashes.
He is powerful enough to blow up this whole area.
However, the explosion disappeared, swallowing only half of the factory, and Oh Ji-heon opened his eyes wide.
Why are the bombings that were supposed to hit the factory ‘missed’ out of the air?
In that incomprehensible situation, Oh Ji-heon looked down with a perplexed look on his face.
He found silver magic squares that filled the entire factory.
“Whew…… Did I overdo it?”
“Are you all right?”
Oh Ji-heon looked with trembling eyes at the vomiting sound coming from ahead.
Kang Yoo-sik is keeping the magic square around him while holding hands with Cha Si-hyun.
Oh Ji-heon fumbled and opened his mouth at Kang Yoo-sik who was casually using magic squares.
“I didn’t stop the mana, I’m controlling the flow, right? I can use as much as I want.”
By amplifying mana with Arketrav, it pushes out the influence of the complete barrier and takes a backup of Cha Si-hyun’s coordinator to clean up the disorganized flow.
With such two forces, he used the magic reverse calculation and twisted the magic into the air to make them collide.
However, Oh Ji-heon, who didn’t know the details, looked at him with a puzzled look.
According to the results of Black forest’s experiment, even A-class Hunter could not use simple magic or skills, let alone a large magic square, in this complete barrier.
But the guy in front shows more potential at the age of 17!
‘I have to kill……I have to kill him no matter what……!’
The moment I save my life here, I must die by that monster.
Even if no one is behind, everything will collapse before that power.
Oh Ji-heon, who lost his all calmness, shouted instead of running away.
“Shoo, shoot again! We have to kill him here!!!”
The mana moved outside by the cry, and Kang Yoo-sik had a slightly difficult look.
‘The second one’s tough.….’
He bought times this much, it would have been time to come, but why is it so late?
Kang Yoo-sik looked up with a dissatisfied look.
From the hole in the sky, Ahn Sul-ha, a woman carrying dozens of knives, an S class hunter Sky Sword, fell.
