The sounds of flash erupted from the surrounding right as the door of the limousine opened and Kang Yoo-sik got out first and looked around.
‘It’s not even an award show, why are so many reporters here?’
Though he does understand the interest of reporters as the people who will be attending today are the people recognized by the Domestic Hunter Industry, swarming around like this was quite strange.
Kang Yoo-sik who looked at the reporters in a strange look moved slightly to the left and reached his hand out to Ahn Seol-ha.
“Please hold it.”
Ahn Seol-ha who gave a slight smile at that got off the limousine by grabbing Kang Yoo-sik’s hand and locked arms with him naturally.
The shutter sounds intensified at that as if they waited for it and Kang Yoo-sik gave an odd look at the unusual reaction.
“What just happened?”
“What do you mean what? A precious person arrived, isn’t it?”
Are you talking about me?”
Kang Yoo-sik questioned with an odd expression to which Ahn Seol-ha chuckled and hugged his arm she held onto.
“I get that you’re curious, but first let’s go in.”
I get it.”
Kang Yoo-sik chuckled and got going with Ahn Seol-ha on the carpet ending at the entrance while the shutter sounds and flashes continued to rise with no rest.
In the meantime, Kang Yoo-sik raised his hearing through cognitive maximization, overhearing the conversations in the surroundings and heard the voices of reporters gathered outside.
“They said that he didn’t have an ordinary relationship with Team Leader Ahn Seol-ha…….
No way they’re in that kind of relationship, right?”
“No matter what, he’s still underage, there’s no way it’d be so.
He’s probably just a scout, right?”
“Given the fact that other guild executives have gathered today, the rumors seem to be true that they’re still in the stage of discussion.”
“But still, looking at how good they’re doing together, the 1000-day guild would be having some advantage, isn’t it?”
“It’s going to be a mess inside the party venue huh.”
Kang Yoo-sik who overheard that conversation roughly got an idea of what’s going on.
‘It indeed was because of me huh.’
The guild executives decided to attend the party after hearing the news that he’d be attending the party and as a result, the attention regarding this soared up naturally too.
This was probably what Ahn Seol-ha meant when she said about a precious person before.
‘The word has gotten out just right I see.’
By any chance, if Ahn Seol-ha wanted him, the rumors that would’ve spread around will be that he was already scouted.
But looking at how words had been spreading around positively, it was clear that Ahn Seol-ha perhaps certainly knew where to draw the line.
Kang Yoo-sik chuckled at the thought of Ahn Seol-ha who had no thought other than getting escorted by him today.
‘Do I have to see it as being faithful to one’s desire or just that she’s being a good person……..’
Anyways, if she had taken care of it so much, he did have to repay it to that extent.
Right before entering in.
Kang Yoo-sik whispered while slightly nagging at Ahn Seol-ha’s arm.
“Let’s take one properly.
In remembrance of our first escort.”
I don’t mind.”
Both of them turned towards the reporters at the entrance and Ahn Seol-ha gave a gentle smile while holding onto his arm closer.
Flashes erupted at that as if they had been waiting for it while clicking them at random and when they were done with the filming, both of them entered the building.
“Let me escort you to the hall.”
A staff of the Hunter’s Association who was waiting for them bowed and guided them to the hall while Ahn Seol-ha relaxed her arm giving an unexpected look.
“You’re quite good at this.
I thought you’d be flustered in front of the camera.”
“That’s because I have some tolerance when it comes to these”
It’s a shame that he had been through something bad when he was in court, but anyways, it wasn’t an overstatement to say that he had perfect tolerance when it came to this.
Ahn Seol-ha gave a regretful expression at Kang Yoo-sik who replied leisurely.
“I think it’d have been cute if you had stiffly stood still too.”
“I don’t think that’d happen.”
Is that soooo?”
At Ahn Seol-ha who looked at him with sparkly eyes, Kang Yoo-sik quietly avoided eyes and fixed his eyes to the front.
They arrived at the entrance of the hall while the two were having a conversation, and the staff who guided them bowed down and opened the door.
“I hope you have a great time.”
Both of them walked into the party hall.
Immediately, attention began to flow from all around.
A strong sensation surged as if in rage.
Countless high-ranking hunters gathered in one place and the sense of intimidation that had leaked implicitly gushed out at once following their gaze.
‘The gold class grades are going to be petrified right when I enter huh.’
The DIA class would’ve hardened here if they had no experience too.
But Kang Yoo-sik who was done with the strong ones before his regression flowed in so naturally that there was a difference in the look of many people.
‘I can’t believe I’m just going in like that……’
‘Is it because of Ahn Seol-ha’s help? No, doing that single-handedly even when she didn’t-…… Indeed, it’s amazing.’
Those who recognized Kang Yoo-sik’s latent powers watched him in a daze while Kang Yoo-sik took a slight glance at it and whispered to Ahn Seol-ha.
“Why are the participants like this today…….?”
Since Kang Yoo-sik had followed Ahn Seol-ha to many places like this before his regression too, he knew how were things revolving this way.
In the case of this party, it was hosted by the Korea Hunters Association and it’s natural for the main participants to be guild executives and hunters who have influence in Korea.
However, foreign hunters could also take part if they request, but usually, there weren’t many instances as such.
It was because every country had such an event and there was no need for them to participate in foreign countries which weren’t home to them.
“I know right.
I see many guilds from the Top 10 of the World too…… It’s quite fancy.”
But then unlike before, this party had participants from huge guilds recognized around the world and there were few famous hunters from other Small & Medium guilds too.
And all of them were sending glances towards Kang Yoo-sik, looking for an opening.
‘I do get it, but….’
His current performance and recognition were indeed something that any guild would want to have.
As he displayed a fast growth in a short time and even made colossal discoveries one after the other to a point that an S-class hunter like Ban Hye-young herself had sent him praises.
But who knew he’d end up at a party in another country, which was no less than that of a fight with his pride!
When Kang Yoo-sik was giving a dreary look.
Ahn Seol-ha who held onto his arm pulled him inside.
“First of all, let’s go in, shall we?”
Kang Yoo-sik entered in with Ahn Seol-ha and approached two people who wore masks of the 1000-day guild.
Team Leader Ahn!”
Deputy Team Leader Han Ye-ji and Team Leader Ahn Hyun-min of attack team 2 greeted energetically.
Ahn Seol-ha smiled at the sight of it.
“Firstly, you don’t’ have to greet us so bombastically since it’s a party.
Please enjoy comfortably.”
Han Ye-ji saluted cheerfully while Ahn Hyun-min slightly turned his head without a word.
Kang Yoo-sik gave a wry smile at how he looked awkward at first sight.
‘These siblings have not changed a bit.’
Ahn Hyun-min doesn’t even try to look in the direction of his elder sister Ahn Seol-ha.
It seemed pretty narrow-minded for the future owners of the 1000-day guild, but there was nothing he could do about these siblings.
That’s because they missed the timing to solve it out before the regression too and are eventually living almost like strangers.
‘The 1000-day guild would’ve gotten way bigger if they tried to at least match their breathing.’
At the time he knew, it was at a stage he couldn’t intervene and it was quite not right to get involved in the beginning too.
That was because he had something close to a twisted trading relationship than an ordinary relationship and Ahn Hyun-min didn’t like Kang Yoo-sik too.
‘I wonder how it’d be this time.’
At that time, many people hated him from the beginning as the rumors spread about him weren’t that good, but it could be different this time too.
When Kang Yoo-sik was watching out of curiosity, Ahn Hyun-min who felt the gaze on him turned his head.
“So, you’re Kang Yoo-sik.”
Though he spoke with no emotion, a strange discomfort could be felt.
At that, Kang Yoo-sik lowered his head and greeted.
“Nice to meet you.”
Ahn Hyun-min stared at Kang Yoo-sik and gave a short reply.
“Please take care of our Team Leader.”
Please go together, Team Leader!”
Ahn Hyun-min turned and walked towards some other place after his words and Han Ye-ji hurriedly chased behind him.
Kang Yoo-sik gave an unexpected look at Ahn Hyun-min who left as fast as a drat even before he replied anything.
‘It’s better this time though?’
Perhaps he could even do something about these siblings who don’t even talk to each other.
When Kang Yoo-sik was smiling at the reaction better than his expectation.
Ahn Seol-ha who stood beside him muttered so lowly while frowning.
“What the heck is wrong with him……..”
At Ahn Seol-ha’s cold reaction, Kang Yoo-sik took a breath and looked at her.
“He looks like a nice person.”
He’s not a bad person.
It’s just that he’s a bit foolish…..
not quick-witted…… and isn’t a jerk.”
When Kang Yoo-sik was giving a dumbfounded look at the expression that certainly looked bad.
Ahn Seol-ha smiled and pulled his arm as if nothing had happened.
“Regardless of that, we should go around now, right? I’ll introduce you to people I know.”
The control room where the entire party could be seen.
Park Yoo-chan was seated in a place where not anyone can enter and looked at the two people through the CCTV screen with a ghastly distorted face.
When he first heard that Kang Yoo-sik will be attending the party, Park Yoo-chan thought that it’s a good opportunity.
The Noblesse Guild that’s still on par with the 1000-day Guild in Korea, though it dropped out of the Top 10 Guilds in the World.
With that influence, he had the confidence to thoroughly humiliate Kang Yoo-sik who attended the party and in reality, he was already done with the preparations for it.
‘Everyone’s lost it over a piece of trash like him.’
But such plans of Kang Yoo-sik were wrong from the very beginning.
After the word was spread about Kang Yoo-sik’s attendance, requests poured in like rain from foreign, including hunters who weren’t usually interested in it!
Therefore, his existing plan became useless, and rather, he can’t even enter the hall to get a look at them.
Park Yoo-chan felt indescribably furious and ashamed at the miserable situation he was in.
A woman who never even showed an interest in him, let alone a smile.
That Ahn Seol-ha was showing diverse expressions in front of another man and sparkled her eyes.
His heart was boiling every time he saw it and he recalled the message sent by his father a few days ago.
– I think the 1000-day Guild has heard the rumors about Kang Yoo-sik and Ahn Seol-ha, behave well so that the wedding doesn’t break.
The first person who aligned with his desires and interests was Ahn Seol-ha.
That’s why he was engaged to her using excessive methods.
But he couldn’t believe that it was now falling apart because of a young boy whose blood in his head isn’t even dried yet.
There was nothing more unacceptable than that to Park Yoo-chan.
‘At any cost…..
I will get her at any cost…….’
Though he had nothing to do here, he couldn’t let go of Ahn Seol-ha like that.
Park Yoo-chan who made his decision, ordered his men at the back.
Prepare two of them.”
“What? But that item is still incomple-…….”
Park Yoo-chan flashed his eyes at the flustered henchman.
The henchman lowered his head and headed somewhere while Park Yoo-chan looked at the CCTV again.
He watched Ahn Seol-ha who smiled brightly while poking Kang Yoo-sik’s cheek.
‘Today I’ll make you realize…..
who is that man standing beside you……..’
The CCTV screen flashed one second.
An image of a man’s ghastly distorted face appeared on the black screen for a moment and disappeared.
