Chapter 1 Part 4
“I mean I guess it could’ve seemed like that.”
The consultant mumbled to himself, but Hyunsuk could hear every word he was saying. Every sense that had become sensitive due to his lost sight, remained with him and he was thankful for it.
It will later become his greatest weapon.
“There are other weapons here.”
He threw his bag over his shoulder and laughed.
Having returned to the past gave him knowledge of the future. Although things in the future haven’t been developed yet, Hyunsuk was aware of all the advancements that would take place.
Of course, he couldn’t know every single thing about what would happen. There was a limit to the knowledge of the future that Hyunsuk had. He only knew what he remembered.
Even still, there were many things that he knew which could be applied usefully.
Things that everybody in the future knew, now, Hyunsuk was the only one that possessed this great advantage and knowledge. He would be the key to opening the great future.
“Let’s start with this…”
He lightly touched the bag that was thrown over his shoulder. He couldn’t make or do anything with the materials inside the bag. At least not yet. He was lacking just one thing. But when that one thing comes into his possession, he could make something phenomenal.
The one lacking thing was the eye of the thunder dragonfly.
“Alright… Should we go kill a thunder dragonfly?”
Granted, hunting a thunder dragonfly alone right now was not going to be an easy task. He needed someone to help him. Hyunsuk was going to meet the person that would aid him in catching the thunder dragonfly.
The front of the Dungeon Headquarters looked like a massive downtown city. People were bustling around everywhere. There was no way for the Headquarters to not be successful.
Hyunsuk walked into a cafe and grabbed a table and sat down. He didn’t just walk into some random place; this was the place that they had agreed to meet at.
“Not here yet… I mean I guess it’ll take some time for him to get here.”
Hyunsuk smiled widely. There was little chance that the person wouldn’t come. Although, he probably won’t be on time.
He checked the time. It was already three hours past the agreed meeting time. It seemed that Hyunsuk was late to the appointment as well.
Time went by and suddenly, his eyes lit up.
“You’re finally here.”
Hyunsuk turned his head and looked out the window of the cafe. From far away, he could see Chang Soo Choi running towards the coffee shop. He could see that Chang Soo was earnest and urgent about the issue.
“That’s why people should keep promises well,” Hyunsuk grumbled as he smiled.
The door burst open and Chang Soo ran inside. He looked all around the coffee shop. When he made eye contact with Hyunsuk, he let out a sigh and trudged to his seat and plopped down in front of Hyunsuk. Chang Soo glared menacingly at Hyunsuk.
There was an aura of maliciousness between the two men.
“What did… What the hell did you do to my body?”
“Nobody else came? I guess you’re not that desperate.”
As Hyunsuk sat there mumbling without any thought, Chang Soo spat out his words with a stone hard face.
“They’re hiding and waiting nearby. When we form as a group, you think it’ll be hard to get rid of someone like you? Hand it over when I’m giving you the chance to.”
“Hand what over?” Hyunsuk asked innocently.
“What do you mean what?! Hand over the antidote and don’t give me the bullshit of saying that you’re still in the process of making it. Because if that’s the case, then I would not have made this shit bargain with you.” Chang Soo was livid.
Hyunsuk just nodded.
“I guess you can somewhat interpret the situation. You have some common sense.”
“I didn’t come here to hear that kind of bullshit from you. I already found out all about you so don’t even try to run away. Alright, Hyunsuk Chae?”
Hyunsuk just nodded.
“I guess it’s nice because you’re saying everything that I want to say to you. But with what skills are you going to attack me? Normal civilians are going to try and surprise attack a player? HA! Even the crows are laughing with me.”
Chang Soo gave a sly smirk and looked down on Hyunsuk, “Why wouldn’t I have the skills? Aren’t players human too? If you get stabbed or shot, dying is all the same.”
Once again, Hyunsuk nodded and then stood up from his seat.
“Alright, then try me. Kind of a shame… But! It’s not too late.”
“Too late for what?”
“You know your health? If you just take the antidote, it’ll come right back, but the longer you wait to take the antidote, it becomes harder to turn back. I guess you can just kill me and live the rest of your life without any more power and health.”
Chang Soo glared at Hyunsuk as chills went down his back. Watching this, all Hyunsuk did was give a smile.
“A human is an adapting animal. Either way, I think you’ll get used to it. Of course, the first few months will be hard, but it’ll become easier to live.”
After Hyunsuk said those words, he turned his back around without any regret. And he left.
Chang Soo on the other hand was overwhelmed and shocked by this encounter. He didn’t think that Hyunsuk would just turn his back around and leave like that. Chang Soo stood up from his seat quickly and rushed out after Hyunsuk.
“Wa-Wait! Stop right there you bastard!”
When Chang Soo exited the door, he abruptly stopped. And soon, with eyes filled by anger, stared at Hyunsuk.
Hyunsuk was standing outside leaning on the building with a smile on his face. He knew that Chang Soo would run out after him.
“Now that I think about it, I didn’t get to finish my coffee.”
Hyunsuk walked back into the cafe and sat in his seat and took a swig of his coffee.
Because Hyunsuk looked so laid back, there was a boiling anger threatening to spill over in Chang Soo. But he knew that he could not say anything out of haste and agitation.
“Just to let you know, if we can’t handle this in 30 minutes, the ability to get all your health and powers back will completely disappear. What a shame, huh?”
Although Chang Soo was being completely overwhelmed with furiosity, he held it down and spoke calmly, “I’ll do as you say, so give me the antidote.”
“Excuse me? I can’t hear you,” Hyunsuk taunted Chang Soo and looked around his surroundings to figure out where Chang Soo’s friend’s were hiding.
‘This adrenaline, it’s not bad.’
There was a possibility that they would make a surprise attack. Of course, without any weapons it would be a hard attempt, but if they had guns and knives, killing a player was easy.
Hyunsuk’s ability to see and sense things was very sharp. And they were getting sharper by the minute.
‘Well… I found them… But one of them isn’t here yet.’
Chang Soo’s group consisted of five people. Six including him, but Chang Soo was sitting in front of him. So there should be five people waiting and watching outside.
No matter how much he focused on finding the fifth person, he couldn’t sense the fifth.
‘That probably means just one thing.’
The last person was waiting outside of Hyunsuk’s supernatural ability of being able to sense people.
The possibility of the person scoping out the situation from a roof top was very high.
‘They really took things into consideration and prepared…’
Hyunsuk smirked. Sniping was a smart and effective method to use to kill people. It was effective for anybody and anything, really. But Hyunsuk was an exception.
If the act of sniping was to be played on Hyunsuk, his reason to live and his survival instincts would kick in. That was why Hyunsuk was an exception.
The method of killing that Hyunsuk was more afraid of and worried about was a kill that would come at him fiercely, and head on. If it was a machine gun rapidly firing at him, there would be no chance for him to flee the scene at all. He would have to fight off the bullets with just his energy, but right now, Hyunsuk did not have that strength. His health, strength, and power was low. It would increase, but that would take time.
