The doorbell rang. There was only one person who would come by my house at this time of the night.
“What did I tell you about coming around whenever you….”
It was glasses girl.
I let her in the house with some confusion. The house was a mess but, since she was the one who came without giving me a heads up, I figured it was her problem.
I made some coffee and set a cup in front of her. She looked a bit anxious.
“So what brings you here?”
It seemed she had something she needed to say.
“You have something you need to say right?”
“That, that’s true…”
Jesus, I was starting to get real curious at this point.
Was it that?
“Is it by any chance….”
Glasses girl raised her head in surprise.
“Are you here to talk about the exclusivity contract?”
“If it’s that, you don’t have to worry too much about it. Since you didn’t technically take the item yet and we didn’t write up and sign the contract yet. If you have a change of heart just let me know right now.”
“If you want to join a different team, you’re free to do so. But I’ll say one thing. There are teams just as bad or worse than team Ezekiel all over the country now. You’re a decent hunter but, at your current level, you do realize you’re not really too strong right? It’s going to be hard for you to join a decent team. I’m not saying this for selfish reasons – I’m saying this as your friend.”
Glasses girl looked at me with a blank face and nodded her head. I figured this would be enough to sway her.
“Then are we done here?”
“That’s…well…the reason I came here today is…”
“SunbehOppa! I’m here!”
Jung Sooah burst through the front door and came in. Seeing how she was holding bags in both hands, it seemed she planned to hang out all day at my house and maybe sleep over again.
“Where did you learn that bad habit of opening the door to other peoples’ homes whenever you want?”
“The door was already unlocked. Oh? Yeonkyoung’s here? What’s going on?”
“That’s….I wanted to say thank you for all that party head has done for me…”
Glasses girl started looking through her bag and took something out.
It was a bag of Kimchi and varieties of other side dishes.
“….What’s all this?”
“My mother personally made all these side dishes to give to party head. I told her how you lived alone and so she made them all.”
“Oh she didn’t need to go through all that trouble…I can just buy it.”
That was what I said, but I was secretly happy inside.
I was especially happy to see homemade marinated meat. If I wanted to eat something like this outside, I would need to pay $10 for just one serving.
Just because I was making good money now didn’t mean I wanted to use it all willy nilly.
“Um….I also brought something too.”
“What? You too?”
“Look look look.”
She had brought a box full of spam, hams, instant noodles, variety tuna cans, and frozen dumplings.
Wow….such a difference.
“I came to make you food today. I felt bad for always bumming food at your house.”
“Uh….since the shelf life for all this is pretty long, let’s eat the food that Yeonkyoung brought over today.”
Glasses girl got up from her seat. Then Jung Sooah said.
“You know how to cook?”
“Yes, I learned from my mom at home.”
Now that she said this, I saw that there was a fresh wound on her hand. It wasn’t something she would get from her bow string. Surely she didn’t just learn it so that she could especially cook something today.
“I’m going to make food too.”
“We both know you don’t know how to cook.”
“I know how to make instant ramen ok?”
“No. I think I’d prefer to eat this than that…”
“Hmph. I guess you just don’t know how delicious my Jjajang Ramen tastes. Just don’t be surprised by its deliciousness after you’ve had it.”
She said this as she folded up both her sleeves.
My kitchen was small.
There was no way the both of them could cook in my kitchen comfortably together. They looked incredibly cramped.
I didn’t think they needed to go through all the trouble but, since I was the one doing the eating, I decided to just see how it would end up.
As they continued their shenanigans in the kitchen, I looked through the internet news.
The incident from the Baeksapyoung dungeon made the main page of the news.
[38 hunters from Team Ezekiel all dead in dungeon. Have still been unable to find the bodies…]
The Baeksapyoung dungeon was now closed.
The dungeon inspectors looked for the dead bodies for days but there was no way they would find anything. Because they had evaporated – down to the very last strand of hair.
[There is word that another similar incident had also occurred at the Bookhansan dungeon as well. According to the officials…]
The news seemed to have made the connection with the Bookhansan dungeon incident.
I guess it should be expected since all trace of hunters had disappeared from both scenes.
I’m sure that soon the police will make the connection that our team had been present both times.
All that ran through my head was that it would be annoying.
But that was it. Because no matter how much they looked, they wouldn’t find anything incriminating.
Oddly enough, Jung Sooah’s Jjajang Ramen really hit the spot.
Of course the food that glasses girl brought made me happy too.
Because you could taste the care that goes into homemade food after not having tasted any for a long time.
The problem was that my stomach couldn’t handle eating the entirety of what these two girls had made.
And I could see them watching me eat the entire time.
Is this a new form of torture? Are they trying to cause me indigestion?
“You guys aren’t eating?”
“I’ll eat after watching SunbehOppa eat everything.”
“I’m not that hungry right now.”
Somehow I was able to eat everything they had made.
In all my life, this was the most I had eaten in one sitting.
If there was a digestion upgrade from my effort skill, I’m sure I would have leveled up.
“Then I’ll do the dishes.”
“Huh? I was going to do it.”
Jung Sooah hurriedly grabbed some dishes and followed me into the kitchen. Behind her, glasses girl had picked up a few dishes and trotted into the kitchen too.
“It’s fine. Just go kill time on the computer or read a comic on the bed or something. I’ll do this.”
The two of them finally relented.
When I came into the room after doing the dishes, I saw the two of them rummaging through my “New Folder”.
“…..Just what are you guys doing?”
Jung Sooah said as she turned around in surprise. Glasses girl said.
“So I guess party head organizes things in this manner.”
“Because I have so much paperwork. Organizing it all in alphabetical order caused some problems.”
I had tons of paperwork on dungeon locations, monsters, and items. They were organized by levels and then again by order of danger.
Of course general information on dungeons are easy to find but that folder was an amalgamation of information that isn’t easy to come by.
