Chapter 134 Part 3
Song Taewon spoke as he squeezed and crushed the neck of the mole. In no time, there only remained a long line of burn marks from the forehead to the right eye. Even a random person would feel the pain from just looking at it, yet he did not even blink.
The veins bulged from the hand as he pulled out the spine, and he threw it against another mole, lodging it in the eye. Simultaneously, the mole screamed as Taewon’s leg spiked down on the mole.
Yoohyun leered at him who was approaching me. Although he had a ferocious attitude, the spirit’s fire has already been weakened for the most part.
“This way. I’ll protect you.”
A hand, covered with blood and torn flesh, extended out to me. He appeared to have gone mad considering that those words seemed sincere.
Yoohyun cringed by holding me halfway.
– Really, did something happen, hyung. The leader Song appeared to have tried to remove the wrist band, and now he says that he will protect you?
“…Did we ever discuss anything about life, before.”
I interjected even after my life has become a mess by telling him to stop trying to do a twisted break dance and just help my cause. Come to think of it, I should just let it go by admitting that Song Taewon had the right to pull out my tongue at least once, for change.
Still, there was a nice vibe during our first meeting, Song Taewon’s car was demolished and my neck was squeezed…. Hm, perhaps, not that much difference from today. Certainly, a person should have at least a small spoonful of fear in their hearts. Otherwise, these type of things could happen.
“I’m sorry, but I don’t want to go now because I am fearful of Song Taewon.”
“Normally, I get scared at moments like this too. However, I reckon that it will be better than being eaten by the monsters.”
Song Taewon tried to coax me as if he had found me in the middle of a disaster.
“How would I know which would be better. It’s possible that the monster’s stomach could be more comforting than being captured by you.”
“If you’d just follow my instructions quietly, nothing will happen.”
What I have said came back to me. All the while, the moles kept coming out of the ground. They formed a pack at a distance away from the fire.
– …I’ll come out as quickly as I can.
Having become quite blurry, Yoohyun looked down on me with a concern.
“No need to. It’s fine.”
Yoohyun’s body size shrunk. Having returned to the shape of Iryn, the lizard, he absorbed into my shoulder like a tattoo.
Song Taewon came towards me by walking on the messed up road. Not even having the strength to stand up, I looked up at the man that stood before me. I felt chilly, although it was a summer night. To put it honestly, I shuddered.
“I’m a scared ordinary person. Please be kind to me.”
“I’ll certainly do that if you choose to remain that way.”
“You mean drink beers together, make small talks over the phone, and things like that?”
“Not during business hours.”
“Do you normally stay friendly with your neighbors like that?”
“I’m not a person who others can easily be friendly towards.”
“I, too, won’t be able to remain friendly should I feel fear.”
Song Taewon lowered his back. He then lightly picked me up.
“So, you are not going to call me anymore.”
“I am. And I will continue to do the things that you do not like. No matter what, you will continue to do the same anyway even if I wouldn’t like it. However, since I’m close to an S-level, please go soft on me.”
A piece of the sidewalk block was kicked in the place of a reply. The head of the mole that was slowly approaching has been demolished.
Those bastards were the kind that could easily breach the blockades and wreak havoc in the city. However, they were all just looking at me.
At this rate, the essential option to minimize the dungeon brake damage would get added.
“I’m not sure how to talk to Han Yoojin still. I reckon that it may be better to get rid of him right here, right now.”
His calm voice gave me more goosebumps. As I tried to choose the words in the midst of ever so rising fear.
There was a sound of thunder. There came a light that was bright enough to hurt my eyes as the pack of the moles was swept away. The monstrous screams of the bastards were continually being absorbed by the thunder.
It was truly in an instant that the pack of the monsters changed into a pile of dead bodies. As a bonus, along with them, a villa and two buildings were unfortunately blown up like that of a popcorn packaging.
Sung Hyunjae easily jumped over the road that had been cracked open as if there was an earthquake. There was a smile in the eyes that were focused in this direction.
“You should return the lost items that you find to the rightful owner. Can a government worker claim an award for returning lost and found items? My item is very precious and expensive.”
You can really make a big score. Sung Hyunjae spoke in a way to hurt one’s feeling, as he always did. At this moment, I thought that Song Taewon and I were having a similar feeling.
