C12: Meeting

To be honest, Seo-yoon wondered if she had to go this far.

To be more honest, Seo-yoon couldn’t figure out why she was doing this.

Even though it was a 4-star manticore that had just woken up from sleep compared to normal manticores, it was quite weak, and in terms of combat power, it would only be about 2 stars.

Of course, considering that, it wasn’t something anyone could do.
However, it was not a reason for Seo-yoon to care so much.

‘I’ll take a shot.’

At first, Seo-yoon’s thoughts were like this so she told him that she would let him meet her grandfather, the Sword Saint.

She hated it because it seemed she borrowed her grandfather’s reputation once again, but Seo-yoon opened her mouth after thinking about it because there was nothing more appealing than this but,

“I don’t want to.”


The answer she heard was far from Seo-yoon’s expectations.
She even doubted whether what she heard was right.

Even professional hunters are anxious to meet the Sword Saint since they want to learn from him because it was worth it.
Seo-yoon was the best proof since she became a B-rank hunter even though she had no talent or will.

“I don’t want to.”

He wasn’t just pretending to be cool, he really wasn’t interested!

‘Don’t tell me he doesn’t know who the Sword Saint is?’

Seo-yoon shook her head quickly.

Or maybe he wasn’t interested in becoming a hunter so Seo-yoon wondered why she did this.

“Wait, let’s talk for a second!”

Seo-yoon couldn’t figure out what was wrong with her.

Seo-joon stared at Seo-yoon, who called him.

“What’s the matter?”

When Seo-joon asked, Seo-yoon took a short breath and answered.

“I was wondering if I could talk to you.”

“What do you want to talk about?”

Seo-joon’s question made Seo-yoon speechless.

She followed him recklessly, but she didn’t know what to talk about.
In the first place, Seo-yoon did not know clearly why she was chasing him.

“If it’s about the Sword Saint I have nothing to say.”

As Seo-yoon was quiet for some time, Seo-joon turned around.

“No! No! This has nothing to do with grandpa.”

Seo-yoon shouted and grabbed Seo-joon, who stopped walking and asked once again.

“Then what do you want to talk about?”


Seo-yoon thought for a moment, blurring her words.

Before she came here, she didn’t know anything about this man.
Her confidence and background also didn’t work on him.
No, it would be more accurate to say he didn’t even care.

It was a background that she tried to get away from, but when she felt indifference, Seo-yoon was a little embarrassed so she decided to be honest about everything.

“Are you thinking of becoming a professional hunter?”

“Why do you ask that?”

“If you do, why don’t you join my academy?”


Seo-joon tilted his head and asked back.

“You run an academy?”

“Do you know me?”

“Is there anyone in Korea who doesn’t know the granddaughter of the Sword Saint?”

Of course, few people knew her name, but everyone knew about her existence.


In response to Seo-joon’s answer, Seo-yoon gave a small exclamation.

‘As expected, this man knows the Sword Saint.’

Seo-yoon opened her mouth again.

“I don’t have any students, but I have an academy.”

“Are you asking me to join such an academy?”

Seo-yoon nodded quietly.


Seo-joon turned his back coldly and was about to leave.


Seo-yoon once again caught Seo-joon.

“Can I at least know why?”

“I think you just said it yourself.”

At Seo-joon’s words, Seo-yoon repeated what she had just said.

‘An academy without students.’

Seo-yoon said with a slight blush.

“The facilities are good, and the instructor is not here yet, but…”

“First of all, I don’t need the academy’s teachings.”

Seo-joon turned his back again and Seo-yoon shouted out in anger because Seo-joon was so mean.

“What if my grandfather would teach you?”


It seemed that she heard a ridiculous answer, but Seo-yoon had no time to pay attention to it.

“Writing! What are you going to do with the written test?”

Seo-joon’s footsteps stopped and Seo-yoon continued, thinking it was her chance.

“You know you can’t be a professional hunter if you fail the written test!”

The professional hunter exam had several subjects.
Among them, there was also a written test, and mainly asked about knowledge and understanding of monsters.

Naturally, it was reflected in the test score, and if the score did not exceed the standard value, he could not become a professional hunter even if he received a perfect score for other subjects.

Therefore, hunter Academies had instructors who only taught theory but unfortunately, there was no instructor at the Transcension Academy who taught such things.

“I can learn by myself.”

It wasn’t too difficult since professional hunters were only speaking with their skills.

“What are you going to do about raids? You can’t participate in dungeon raids unless you’re studying at an academy.”

“Isn’t it the same if I enter Seo-yoon’s academy? Only the government-approved academies can issue temporary certificates.”

“I have the official seal! If you come to my academy, I’ll help you do raids right away!”

Seo-joon’s steps slowed down a little and Seo-yoon continued to talk as she noticed it.

“You said you didn’t need the academy’s teachings, did you? All right.
I won’t teach you anything.
We will also provide you with a separate space for training!”


“I won’t ask for any money, including tuition!”

That one word was enough to change Seo-joon’s attitude.

“Are you saying that I should just belong to your academy?”


Seo-yoon was silent, but it was a sufficient answer.

Her suggestion was attractive to Seo-joon since it would solve his current concerns at once.
However if there are benefits, there are also obligations.

“What should I do in the academy?”

“All you have to do is participate in various external activities under my academy name before the professional hunter test, and tell people that you go to my academy.”

However, the obligations were not too difficult compared to the benefits received.

“Why are you trying to recruit me?”

Seo-joon had no choice but to doubt Seo-yoon.

“Because I saw your potential!”

“Is it because of today?”

Seo-yoon nodded quickly.

“Do you think I’m worth the investment?”


Seo-yoon was speechless.
In fact, it was because Seo Yoon didn’t know the reason well.

What happened today wasn’t common, but it wasn’t to the extent of going this far but for some reason, Seo-yoon needed to catch this man.

It seemed that this man could take the first step toward achieving her dream.
Although it was just a feeling Seo-yoon had.

‘It doesn’t seem like she knows anything…’

On the contrary, Seo-joon tried to figure out Seo-yoon’s intentions.
However, he quickly brushed it off, knowing that it was meaningless.

Seo-joon looked into Seo-yoon obsidian like eyes.
Seo-joon thought they were really beautiful because they blended well with the unique atmosphere Seo-yoon had.

But before that, Seo-joon could get a glimpse of some will in her eyes.
In those eyes, Seo-joon could see a person who has been struggling in the past like him.

Not being successful doesn’t mean that life is worthless.
It was worth it to run towards your dream, at least Seo-joon thought so.

There was a lot of time left until the professional hunter test anyway.
Until then, Seo-joon thought it would not be bad to grow with support.
In a way, they were using each other.

Seo-joon approached Seo-yoon and held out his hand.

“I’m Kim Seo-joon.”

Seo-yoon raised her head, looked at Seo-joon and held his hand with a big smile.

“I’m Park Seo-yoon.”

This was how the meeting between Park Seo-yoon, who dreamed of creating the world’s best Hunter Academy and Kim Seo-joon, who dreams of being the best hunter in the world happened.

Seo-joon and Seo-yoon went into a nearby cafe and talked about the details.
And only then could Seo-joon hear the name of her academy.

“Dream Academy?”

Have you heard of it?”

Seo-yoon had an expression of anticipation but Seo-joon shook his head.
If he heard about it he would’ve said it.

Seo-joon smiled and asked.

“When can I get a temporary license?”

What Seo-joon needed most now was money.

After the free pass expired he had to purchase the free pass again or take individual lectures.
He needed money to keep listening to the lecture, a lot of them, too.

He also needed training weapons sold by the Transcension Academy.
It was doubtful whether they were really “training,” but he also needed money to buy them.

Above all, the most efficient way to raise the progress of the lectures was to practice and dungeon raids could solve all of his problems at once.

However, since temporary certificates could not be issued at once, Seo-joon was required to adjust his schedule according to the period.

“One day is enough.
I’ll take care of it today, so I’ll give it to you as soon as you come to our academy tomorrow.”

Seo-yoon nodded her head casually, saying it would only take a day while Seo-joon felt that it was a little ridiculous and that Dream Academy was strange.

It was an academy with no students, but it was approved by the government and they could issue a temporary license in one day.

‘Is it because of the Sword Saint?’

Seo-joon concluded so.

“Then I’ll come to the academy right away tomorrow.”

Since the most important temporary certificate problem was solved at once, Seo-joon had nothing he wanted right now and after exchanging phone numbers he tried to get up and leave but,

“Thank you.”

Suddenly, Seo-yoon bowed to Seo-joon and Seo-joon asked with a puzzled expression.

“Are you talking about registering for the academy?”

“No, what happened today.
Oh, of course, thank you for that too.”

Seo-yoon echoed Seo-joon’s words for a moment and after a little time he could understand what she meant.

“Actually, that manticore is a monster from the raid I participated in···”

So Seo-joon could understand even though Seo-yoon didn’t talk until the end.

The monster from Seo-yoon raid was alive and if Seo-joon did not come forward at that time, many people would have been injured or killed.

Although it was not intentional, Seo-yoon would not have been able to dispel the guilt that people died because of her.
However, that did not happen because of Seo-joon, and Seo-yoon was very grateful for that.

Seo-joon didn’t say much and just smiled.
It felt a little strange that the granddaughter of the Sword Saint was grateful to him.

Then suddenly he thought of something.

“Can I ask you a favor since you’re grateful?”

Seo-joon came up with a pretty interesting idea.


Seo-yoon asked back with her head tilted but Seo-joon smiled and said.

“Please go to our company and say that you don’t like the work done by Kim Tae-soo and that you can’t work with them in the future.”


Seo-yoon tilted her head continuously because she didn’t understand Seo-joon’s words.

“Then, please.”

However, Seo-joon already felt relieved.
