Episode 273: Public Enemy (2)
This sub-space is the place where final exams are held.
There are countless dungeons and artifacts hidden here.
The reason is simple.
Radar, what is their nature?
Hunting monsters and protecting people, of course, but also winning treasure!
That was the root that occupied the largest part of the radar.
For this reason, the academy put all sorts of devices in the subspace so that the cadets could find items.
Jaehyun is like the past midterm exam. He was going to search for useful artifacts here as well.
Ahn Ho-yeon declared. Jaehyun nodded.
The rest of the members decided to stay for now. Because Lee Jae-sang had the potion, he decided not to take a healer with him.
It is said that there will be no fights among the cadets, but that is only 24 hours.
When that’s all over, there’s a good chance that other forces will plan to raid this place again.
Also, maybe the next attack… It must be a pincer attack by the two surviving forces.
A little while ago, Jung-hyeon and Kang Joo-hyeop exchanged swords.
There, Jaehyun was sure of one thing.
‘Jeong Hyun and Kang Joo-hyeop. The two held hands. I was just pretending to fight in order not to be seen.’
In the previous battle, Jeong Hyeon did not sincerely attack Kang Joo-hyeop.
Perhaps if he had fought sincerely, he would have heard the message of one of the two factions dropping out.
There is a high probability that Kang Joo-hyeop would have been defeated.
Anyway, he brought the elite with him, but it was different in the case of Jung-hyeon.
Wasn’t the entire forest his field?
Jeonghyeon’s spearmen were rumored to have considerable skill even within the academy.
However, in that situation, no forces were eliminated.
It eventually reappears and the castle circles.
In other words, it means that they colluded to defeat the black forces.
“But will the two of you be okay? that could be dangerous… .”
“What are you talking about? You should go with me, of course.”
To Kwon So-yul’s question, Jae-hyeon calmly and weakly answers.
Kwon So-yul was taken aback. Looking up, he seemed to really think so.
It was a very impudent gaze, but it was so natural that no one questioned it.
Finally, she answered with a sigh.
“okay. After all, there must be one person who can read the road. Let’s go with the three of us to clear the simple dungeon.
Instead, give me more points. Got it?”
“The rest of you guard the post here. You never know what will happen, so be careful.”
“Leave it to me.”
“Don’t worry, you’ll be fine!”
Jaehyun’s worries made the group say that as if they didn’t feel burdened at all.
Han Ji-an was amazed at the appearance of those who make quick decisions without knowing it.
Circle Nine. They were harder than when I first saw them.
But how is that possible?
It’s only been a few months since they formed a team. In the meantime, they joined the circle together, took charge of solving various cases, and came to where they are now.
I thought Sung grew up quickly… It would be impossible to win at this speed.
Besides, it’s because its position has come down a bit from its heyday.
… I also have some debt.
“Senior Jian. I have something to tell you, so come over here for a second.”
I think so. Suddenly, her reappearance called her to come to her side.
Jaehyun whispered in a low voice that no one else could hear.
“We have a spy on our team.”
“… What, what!?”
“Please find it and organize it while I return. Surely.”
After saying that, Jaehyun waved his hand.
In order to clear the dungeon, it was better to start now. He invested some points to get food and other items for the raiding party.
I would have cared a little more if I was sending someone other than myself…
That’s enough for now.
Her comrades are not weak, and even more so herself. He planned and purchased even that other guys would follow suit.
Well, no big deal.
Jaehyun took a deep breath.
A barrier vest worn instead of the abyssal armor and the amount of visible HP left. That alone reminded him that he was holding an event at the academy.
However, why is he?
Jaehyun felt as if he was standing in the middle of a real battlefield. Perhaps what he was paying for now was a fragment of his own imperfect future, he thought.
How bleak will be the end to come?
At the end, the fate of the nine worlds is at stake. Will he be able to change his future?
It was a situation where everything was uncertain, but Jaehyun had to move on.
Even if it’s a situation where you can’t even discern whether it’s right or not.
I still had to move on.
At least that’s better than losing people you care about.
While Jaehyun was thinking about that, he suddenly heard a voice in front of him.
“Let’s go. We should come back early if we don’t want the kids to be in danger.”
Saying so, Kwon So-yul packed light equipment. He thought he had hidden a lot of daggers in his arms. from the top to the bottom of the thigh.
“You changed your job as a rogue? That sounds like the wrong route.”
“… Would you like a hit?”
[Anonymous 11: Ah Soyul sister…;; It’s over the line. Anyway, a bit of a thief.]
[Anonymous 13: So one person is going down the corruption route again… .]
[Anonymous 98: Please stop hating me… .]
The chat window was also busy responding to their conversations.
Ahn Ho-yeon also took a deep breath and followed them.
The trio’s simple dungeon raid began like that.
* * *
there is a spy
It was a story that complicated Han Ji-an’s head.
It was surprising that there was a spy, but Jaehyun, who noticed this, felt several times more strange.
“You also knew Jian, right? There’s a spy in here.”
Isn’t that what even Kim Yu-jung said?
Han Ji-an unknowingly answered with a mumble.
“Come to think of it, it was weird from the beginning. It wasn’t enough that we were able to bypass our eyes looking down from the high ground, and when we were chasing the enemy forces, the hundred forces intervened as if they had been waiting.
In fact, from the beginning, the enemy and the white forces wanted to explicitly reveal that they were not on good terms. It was a fake on purpose!”
“Yeah, that’s right!”
Han Ji-an finally learned the truth about what Jae-hyun said the spy was inside.
Thanks to Jaehyun not explaining properly, it was quite difficult for her.
If it wasn’t for Kim Yoo-jung, who had a good brain, I might have just stomped my feet without grasping anything.
“… Um, but how do you find a spy?”
As she crossed her arms and muttered, Lee Jae-sang approached and said,
“If you have this, it will be possible.”
Jaesang Lee. What he took out was a potion containing a transparent liquid.
Also known as the Potion of Truth. It was a kind of confession that prevented users from telling lies.
Jian Han crossed her arms and was lost in thought.
If I had this, I would feed all the suspicious people… .
“Because it is inhumane, I think we should turn off the broadcasting and find the traitor. And there is one more problem.”
When Lee Jae-sang said that, Han Ji-an raised his head and asked.
“what is that?”
“The number of potions is limited. The ingredients for this are on the expensive side.”
“There are three potions in total. So that means we have to narrow down the suspects to three.”
Jaesang Lee said so. It seems that there will be some tough things.
Jian Han thought so and calmly recalled the past.
therefore… Who the hell is that guy who has been acting suspiciously since morning?
* * *
“Huh… Heo-eok… ! I’m back… !”
The beach where you can hear the crashing waves. There, a man was walking with a broken leg, limping.
“Who are you to be fearless at this time… !”
Kang Joo-hyeop immediately grabbed his sword and ran out. Then, his eyes narrow and his gaze is fixed on one person.
man. He was familiar.
He was a boy with the unique name of Won-seop, and he was the de facto right-hand man of Kang Joo-hyeop.
A member of the Aran Circle. but… I was beaten by him a little while ago, how did you come back?
“How did you come back!”
“I managed to escape from there and run away… Do you have anything to drink?”
“Come in at once.”
The two of them solved the ambivalence of those few hours.
He was attacked by Jaehyun when the poison tile was activated, but it seemed that he managed to come back alive.
Apparently, his physical abilities are limited, so it seems that even if the attack of that reappearance hits him once, he won’t be out right away.
Kang Joo-hyeop clenched his fists and said.
“shit… I never thought I would join hands with Yu because of Min Jae-hyun’s son.”
Kang Joo-hyeop gritted his teeth and muttered. Won-seop soothed him.
“Don’t think too much. Anyway, it won’t be too late to hand over the white forces after Min Jae-hyeon’s black forces are dealt with.”
Certainly that is true.
In any case, it must be admitted that the power of representation is stronger than expected.
Building an alliance would be an overwhelming advantage here.
Fortunately, Jung-hyeon and himself held hands. No matter how good the ability of representation is, you can’t face them alone.
Kang Joo-hyeop planned to exclude him first by merging with Jung-hyeon and Jae-hyun right after tomorrow ends and on the day the 3rd car comes.
Then… hit the back!
“Rest for now. Tomorrow we have to clear the dungeon. Because I have to collect at least one more artifact.”
Priest artifacts are not allowed here.
only what i got here.
It can also be used in the form of a rental.
“Ah, even if you don’t, I found a dungeon. It must be a place with some pretty useful items. The magic I felt was considerable.”
“Is that true? where are you?”
Kang Joo-hyeop asked excitedly. There is no Kwon So-yul here like Jae-hyun.
I wouldn’t know if she had a search skill, but it was close to impossible to figure out which dungeons and items were placed in this subspace in one day.
Won-seop told me everything he had just seen.
There is a dungeon behind a cliff in a place where no one will come, and it is advantageous to have a large number of wizards who can dispel magic barriers.
Kang Joo-hyeop nodded without thinking further.
Cliff… There is no problem even if you run into Jaehyun there.
Isn’t tomorrow a peaceful day where we can’t turn each other out?
Also, if what you can get there is a useful artifact, you must get it.
that was his idea
* * *
On the other hand, Jaehyun smiles as he recalls the cadet he saved and sent away a moment ago.
Are you doing well by now?
