Chang Soo’s bad feelings were very, very accurate.
They didn’t consume an antidote, rather, it was a temporary medication that gave them their strength back for the time being.
‘How the hell is that a rookie player! What a lying, manipulative asshole!’
Chang Soo silently cursed Hyunsuk in his head. But he did not let his smile falter from his face.
Hyunsuk was absorbing the looks that he was receiving from the six people. He could not help but to smile bigger.
“You can think of it as a form of insurance. At least I didn’t kill you.”
Chang Soo ground his teeth. But he knew it was true. If Hyunsuk wanted to kill them, he could have done so easily in the dungeon when they lost their consciousness.
Truthfully, if you died in the dungeon, it was not an easy thing to be identified unless your killer took your body to the Dungeon Headquarters and had you identified. This was because if you died in the dungeon, it was bound that you would reincarnate in some other level, or just disintegrate so it wasn’t even required for your corpse to be taken back.
On the same note, if you cleared all the levels in the dungeon, the dungeon would disappear, and so would your dead body. In which case, it would definitely be impossible to be identified and found.
But Chang Soo could not be grateful for this situation.
“So are you saying that you’re going to use us like your slaves?”
“I already said that this was all part of the plan. All I am doing is doing exactly what you did to me.”
Chang Soo wanted to ask what exactly Hyunsuk was planning to do with them. But he could not bring himself to do so because Chang Soo’s confidence disappeared more and more every second that Hyunsuk was looking at him.
‘I am almost one hundred percent sure that he is a rookie player… There is absolutely no way that he has that much strength… But why am I being like this?’
Players had the ability of checking how much strength, health, and power other players possessed.
But if the other player decides to hide the amount of strength, health, and power they have, it was hard for the player trying to read how much they have to be able to access their source level. It wasn’t completely impossible because stronger players could still figure it out with a use of a small amount of their power.
Chang Soo shook his head from left to right. That’s why he was even more baffled. He was able to sense that Hyunsuk’s health, strength, and power was one of the lowest of the lows. He was definitely a rookie. Chang Soo knew that it could not have been any more than a month since Hyunsuk had become a player.
But when Hyunsuk looked at him with those eyes, Chang Soo could not help but feel inferior to him. It felt as if he was sitting and handling the veteran of the veteran players who drew in their power by feeding on players weaker than them on the daily.
“Well anyways, now that you took the temporary antidote that provides access to your skills for a month, if you don’t take the next batch, you are going to lose it all and there will be no turning back. So don’t forget to be cooperative with me.”
Chang Soo was starting to get nervous. He had never heard of an antidote that had a temporary effect. But he wasn’t doubting that it wasn’t a medicine that did not exist just because he did not know that it existed.
After the dungeon was created, rather than things being realistic, everything was idealistic.
“What exactly… do you want from us?”
“Nothing much, really. Just thought I’d go hunting for a thunder dragonfly.”
Chang Soo’s facial expression changed once again. He was planning to never hunt the thunder dragonfly again. The thought of having to do such an action once again against his will pissed him off.
‘Wait… How is he saying that he’s going to hunt it? When we hunt it, we need someone to consume the thunderbolt flower potion to play as bait…’
Chang Soo nervously looked at Hyunsuk. Followed by the look that he received from Hyunsuk, his heart dropped down to his stomach once again.
For some reason, he already knew the answer to his question.
‘We’re so screwed.’
Chang Soo and his group members all dropped their heads with devastation.
* * *
At the command of Chang Soo, his comrades all ran in different directions. Around them were bolts of lightning and thunder being thrown at them.
Chang Soo was almost struck by the thunder. He probably wouldn’t have died, but he would have been paralyzed and it was bound that he would have been eaten alive piece by piece by the thunder dragonfly.
“What the hell are you doing!”
Almost as if Hyunsuk was responding to Chang Soo’s question, he slid and cut the monstrous creature. Because Hyunsuk attacked the dragonfly when it was throwing out bolts of thunder, the dragonfly did not react.
And then suddenly it shrieked. It was the sound of the connecting limbs severing and its bodily fluids coming out. It echoed all throughout the dungeon.
Chang Soo slightly relaxed when he saw this and looked at Hyunsuk at he was running down the back of the dragonfly.
It wasn’t the first time Chang Soo witnessed this. But every time, he was struck with awe and wonder when he saw Hyunsuk fearlessly pursuing the death of the thunder dragonfly.
‘Either he has some unknown supernatural strength or he received special training…’
If that wasn’t the case, it was impossible that Hyunsuk could have master such agility and strength. Especially because there was absolutely no mistake in Hyunsuk’s movements.
Hyunsuk’s knife had penetrated the weak point of the thunder dragonfly.
This had concluded the seventh hunt of the thunder dragonfly. It wasn’t just an ordinary thunder dragonfly, but it was a thunder dragonfly that had the power to change and control its thunder bolts.
‘This is really weird… Were thunder dragonflies this common in the dungeon?’
This dungeon was extremely weird. It was definitely a Bronze 1 level dungeon. In this level of a dungeon, the act of the thunder dragonfly was the boss. It was the most powerful thing in the level.
But in this dungeon, the thunder dragonfly was appearing to be of just ordinary strength.
Because of this, only Chang Soo’s group members were dying out. He couldn’t count how many times they were struck by the lightning bolts.
The thing that put him at ease was the fact that Hyunsuk gave him a green capsule that significantly increased their strengths. If they didn’t take that medicine, they probably would all be sprawled dead on the floor.
Chang Soo was laying down on the floor, resting and he strained to sit up. His comrades who were also lying exhausted on the floor besides him, sat up slowly.
They stood up and slowly approached Hyunsuk.
Hyunsuk was sitting on top of the dead thunder dragonfly’s body and extracting the magical stone.
“Another one? How the hell are you so lucky?”
At this point, it wasn’t just luck. Hyunsuk knew something special in order to let this continue happening.
If you told anybody that throughout seven hunts, all seven times you were able to extract a magical stone, nobody would have believed you.
But in the dungeon, that’s what reality was.
It had only been a mere 5 hours since Chang Soo’s group and Hyunsuk had entered the dungeon. In that 5 hours, Hyunsuk had made an amount of over $7,000,000.
On top of that, their hunt had not ended yet.
‘I wonder how many more thunder dragonflies there are in this dungeon.’
