Evolution Theory of the Hunter – Chapter 87
[TN: Here you goooo]
Additionally, they had used a generic vehicle was was commonly used in our country. They most likely planned it that way to keep from being caught.
-[Then I’m at a loss. Even if you had proof, I don’t have the type of authority to mobilize the police force to pursue such a lead.]
Though she was a Lieutenant and an elite in the police force, she still had her limits.
Lacking experience as a mid twenties female officer, you could say that she only had the bare minimum in power that her status afforded her.
But I also hoped this highly unusual situation would warrant use of power that would normally be out of reach.
“Then are you saying you just want to wait and see what happens before making a move?”
[Well, I’ll take it up to my superiors. But I can’t say what they will decide to do. For that reason, it is better if we had proof.]
“Proof you say…”
[Proof that will force my superiors to make a move. Isn’t it for this very reason that we sent out hunters to the new land in the first place? To secure claim on the land?]
“That’s a nice way of saying we were looking for reasons to kill the Chinese hunters so that we can keep the new land to ourselves.”
[That isn’t what I was saying but if it comes to that then…]
She gave a small shrug. Hunters are expendable. It’s not as if they were any special. If you just had the money, being a Hunter was possible for anybody. It didn’t matter much if several hundred hunters died or not.
As soon as I hung up, Sooah spoke.
“I don’t think the police will do anything without solid proof.”
“Then does that mean we have to turn back?”
Manager Kim scrunched up his face in annoyance.
“No. We don’t know how many enemies are posted there. Going in blind is suicide. We were lucky once before. Let’s not press our luck again.”
They were most likely hunters picked out by the Chinese government. It would be great if there were only low level hunters, but if they had even one or two level 5 hunters mixed in somewhere…it would be tough.
That didn’t mean we were going to give in and back down. If we just let them be, the Chinese would end up monopolizing all of the monsters and items in the forest.
Just that would be a huge loss, but the real problem was what would come after that.
After hunting all the monsters in that land, the hunters would only grow stronger. And after they leveled up and wiped out the monsters in the forest? They would probably decide to move north.
“Should I post something on the hunter market board?”
“If we posted something onto the information bulletin, wouldn’t it do something? I’m sure no one would ignore it.”
“Hm…that’s not a bad idea.”
“Yay! I got a compliment!”
We decided to do just as she said and post up a note on the board.
As soon as we posted it up, comments began to flood in.
-There are Chinese hunters in the forested area? Is that true?
-Is China crazy? Going there means they really want to fight it out with us isn’t it? Are they started shit? Weren’t we going to split the land and keep the peace?
-Seeing the username of the person who posted this…it looks like they’re a new hunter….? How can we trust them?
-I searched the username and saw that they made a few posts about recruiting some party members. And it looks like they haven’t even been a hunter for that long. Yeah right I’ll trust them.
-Wait, I feel like I’ve heard that name before.
-Isn’t Jeon Sangmin part of Team Delta? You know. The one that came out in that crazy fighting video…
-You know. The hunter who beat the shit out of Ezekiel. Remember? That’s how everyone was able to break through the barricade and get into the South Marshlands.
-That’s him? Well shit, then I don’t think they’re lying.
-So does that mean the Chinese are really in the forested area…? Isn’t that kind of scary?
-Aren’t there more people who went down there? Anybody?
-Now that I think about it, there’s no information on any hunters talking about the forested area.
-You’re right. Even if it’s super far, there’s no way no one attempting hunting all the way out there.
-Surely, they didn’t all end up getting killed by the Chinese hunters there.
-Sounds like a modern day scary story….the possibility of it being true is giving me chills.
Hm. It seems that having sort of a famous name comes in handy in times like this.
“I think that this should be enough to cause an issue.”
Sooah said. The bulletin boards at the hunter market are used the most by all of the hunter community.
If things became an issue there, something would happen.
-Let’s post it on the best/popular posts. Everyone upvote it. Shouldn’t alot of people know something like this?
-Yeah. We need to confirm if it’s real or fake anyway. Let’s post it.
-If it goes up on the best/popular posts list, I’m sure someone will decide to go fact check.
Out of all the millions of posts in the community, the posts that are upvoted as a best/popular post become even more viewed.
If it really becomes upvoted as a best/popular post, our mission is complete.
Even if I didn’t do anything, there were plenty of curious hunters out there searching for the truth. If the police didn’t want to move, there should be other people determined enough to do something about it. And they would probably be able to get the proof that we couldn’t get.
“I kind of feel bad about shifting the responsibility of getting such an important thing like this to someone else.”
Cho Youngoo whispered.
“But it’s not as if we could go in and do everything ourselves – especially when we don’t know what kind of force we’re dealing with. It might seem a bit underhanded, but my priority is keeping my party members safe.”
“Cheers to that.”
Manager Kim said as he nodded his head up and down. That made me a bit curious. Curious as to why a man who was so set on safety was still in our party. He should have earned enough money by now where he wouldn’t have to be a hunter anymore….
“Manager Kim, how long do you intend on staying a hunter?”
“Why do you ask? Do you want to fire me too? I’ve been working hard on my own time to be a better hunter you know?”
I might have hit a nerve because he yelled out pompously as his face turned a bright red.
“No, that’s not why I asked. I just thought you didn’t even like being a hunter. And you must have earned quite a bit. I was just wondering why you were still with us.”
“If I just follow you, money keeps on flowing in. You think I’m crazy to leave such a goldmine of an opportunity? I guess you still don’t know your worth huh?”
