S Classes That I Raised
Chapter 141: A Shard Within (3)
Of course, Hyunjae Sung did not say that he will trust me. He responded with a gaze filled with suspicion and curiosity about what my plan was.
“I have a psychological skill that I want to use to return your memory. However, since my stats are low, I cannot use it without your consent.”
“You’re telling me to accept a psychological skill.”
Hyunjae Sung’s expression was expectably sour since who would like to have his or her head dug up? A hunter with violent tendencies might start swinging a sword to open up my head first.
“How soft was I on you for you to say that kind of nonsense without hesitation?”
“I’m trying to help you out of goodwill with some risks on my part. I’m quite expensive, Sesung Guild Leader.”
“Even for me?”
“Not if you gave me the Sesung Guild. Give up.”
“Stop avoiding the subject.” I cut into the chase. “If you don’t like my proposal, go on living like now.”
I needed some things from him, including immediate cooperation, but the Hyunjae Sung in front of me did not know that. So, I went in strong.
Hyunjae Sung’s eyes narrowed at my provocation, and I felt chills run down my spine. The house was cold enough for me to have goosebumps on my arm. I should make an appeal that he has to keep me alive about now.
“Please calm down and look at this.”
I pushed my phone to him that displayed an article about me. It included details about the farm facilities, riding beasts, and Myungwoo. Hyunjae Sung picked up the phone and scrolled down the article without speaking.
“This is the Comet Soyoung was talking about.”
“It’s a cute dragon with useful skills that have not been revealed yet, like my skill of doubling the effect on offensive skills.”
“That’s not very useful for a low-grade hunter.”
“This skill can be shared. I told you that we hunted a SS class monster together, right? It was quite effective there.”
“Then why did I leave you alone?”
Hyunjae Sung tilted his neck as he returned my phone.
“I would have tamed and tied you up.”
“I have an L class curse resistance skill, so that might be difficult.”
“An L class?”
His pale eyes looked surprised. A Hyunjae Sung, who does not know anything about me, was amusing in his responses.
“I also have high-class poison resistance. I nullified your contract with that lizard. Check if you want.”
“I wondered when you spoke about an arm and a leg.”
“I lent you a hand. I have nothing to lose if I go back and will live well in peace. You, however, need me.”
“You’re aggressive for someone who does not have a problem.”
“It’s for the times we had, so I’ll say this one last time.”
I raised one hand and continued.
“Please submit to my skill.”
He was not someone who would give up in front of an F class when he had so much to know. Hyunjae Sung nodded his head after a short while.
“It’s been a long time since my last gambit.”
“I heard that less than a month ago. Please don’t get addicted.”
Hyunjae Sung let down his suspicions at my words and smiled.
I had Irin’s help the last time I used this skill, so this was my first time using it alone. I was worried about whether it would work properly, but from my struggle to turn off the skill last time, I made a psychological space more easily than I thought.
I opened my eyes to see a room where the light came in from a large window. A man was standing with his back to it, and his eyes smiled as he saw me.
“Hello, Yoojin Han.”
“How can you be so calm greeting me?”
My worry sank and grew cold. I had been a tiny bit worried, but it was a meaningless emotion. Maybe I should just get out.
“I apologize for surprising you since this was beyond my estimations.”
“I was not surprised, but I was almost killed.”
“I see that I had been impolite.”
“It was nothing. I was dragged by a chain and went up the stairs with my body, and almost drowned in an aquarium.”
“I’m ashamed of my actions. You came to my home, and I only served water.”
Do you call that serving? I did drink a lot though.
“So, what happened? Can you get out again?”
“I began to feel that something was wrong from about two months ago.”
Hyunjae Sung slanted his neck and started speaking. Two months meant that he had felt the effects of my regression.
“At first I sensed minor differences, but I remembered something concrete at dawn that my abilities to handle magnetic forces in range and intensity were still weak.”
Deep golden eyes looked at me. Taewon Song did not know that Hyunjae Sung could use magnetism, and it was because he was unable to wield it.
‘His range and intensity were powerful.’
If he could use magnetism that well, he had to have used it on a smaller scale a few times beforehand. Controlling properties perfectly like that was impossible despite it being a property innate in a hunter.
“I also vaguely remembered things I forgot, but they scattered like sand. I tried to go after them, and that’s why I’m in this situation.”
