13. Whereabouts of Love (2)
Jaehyun finally managed to get his mind together.
It wasn’t that easy to love multiple people at the same time, but it was easier than hurting someone.
Even more so if it was his most cherished colleague.
‘I’ll have to live my life checking to see if this is right. At least for now… … .’
I have to believe that my choice was not wrong.
Jaehyun repeated that as he looked at the children who loved him.
The place where they gathered now was a dining table in a luxury hotel.
The members of Nine gathered to sincerely congratulate Jaehyun and the other girls for their love.
It wasn’t just humans that made the place shine.
“Ha ha ha ha ha! Hella, you finally did it. How is it? On a good day like this, my latest humor book… … .”
“Shut up. Jormungand.”
Jaehyun calmly closed the snout of the snake.
I brought in some of his gags to entertain Hella, but I wasn’t impressed by his gags.
Isn’t that absolutely impossible?
Loki and Jaehyun were drinking heavily.
I was a strong god without a hangover, but I seem to be a subject of concern to the other kids.
Maybe it’s the first time I’ve seen Jaehyun drink so much alcohol.
Even though he has a godhead, he is just an adult.
In my past life, of course, I spent twenty-seven years and was very close to alcohol, but no one could say that I knew it well.
“hey. Jaehyun, I don’t know anything else. As long as you drink, take away that godhood. Because we have to play the truth game.”
“… … When is the truth game? And Loki, how far have you been patched in Korean? It’s going to be crazy.”
“no way. What do you think? I just need to control it so that only the alcohol in my body is excreted outside. So, can’t we hear the stories we’ve been hiding inside each other? It just gets closer and better!”
“It sounds like bullshit… … .”
I was skeptical of Loki’s words.
Jaehyun hates getting drunk and getting drunk.
In the first place, I have never properly shown myself to anyone after getting drunk.
The injection of reproduction is literally in the unknown area!
But, why is it despite my ignorance? A reaction erupted from the other side.
It was the girls.
“Hmm~ So, you mean that no one knows about Min Jae-hyun’s injection after drinking alcohol?”
“yes! After all, you know something.”
Loki vehemently agreed.
Fenrir shook his head and said to Nidhogg.
“Father started again.”
“Since this happened, let’s all have a drunken competition! how is it? Give the winner a present!”
Jaehyun shook his head, saying he was childish.
“Why do you have to do that in a fancy restaurant? what does that mean… … .”
“Make it by majority vote.”
Jaehyun was a little uneasy at Loki’s triumphant words, but he decided not to worry.
There’s no way there would be people among my co-workers who would accept the proposal of such a crazy guy anyway.
… … I thought.
“… Why are you all raising your hands in yes?”
Eana Seo, Yujeong Kim, Hella, and Ruina.
Even Kwon So-yul and Lee Jae-sang. Sung-jae Yoo and Seong-jae Park, who were to sit together specially.
In addition, all the gods raised their hands on the side that agreed to participate in the drinking contest.
Lee Jae-sang was frightened for some reason, but when Kwon So-yul raised his hand to participate, he carefully raised his hand while examining her expression.
“What are you doing? And to my brother… … .”
“M-I’m sorry… … I’m still scared of Soyul… … .”
It was Lee Jae-sang, who stuttered for the first time in a while.
Jaehyun let out a sigh of relief.
Are you alone in this situation?
As a leader, it was impossible.
“Ah, I got it.”
* * *
Aside from the opinions of others, there was only one reason why four women participated in a drinking contest.
‘Maybe I can find out who Jaehyun’s favorite girl is!’
Each of them had a slightly different tone, but when looking at the results, they were largely the same.
It is to resolve the question of Jaehyun’s sincerity and his initial decision.
The first time Jaehyun called them to the guild office, he said he had made up his mind.
How anxious were they at this time?
As a result, it was concluded that everyone likes Jaehyun and spends time together, but the curiosity has not been resolved yet.
I want to make it clear here who is the person who receives the most love.
Thanks to that, they moved as if they were salty.
It was because Egir prepared a full cup of strong liquor and poured it into it, but only transparent water was filled in the cups of the four people with amazing hand skills.
Join our Discord for release updates!
To put it simply, it’s like taking out the bottom.
Only Jaehyun and the others drink. Indeed, women do not drink alcohol!
This was an obvious rule violation, but it didn’t matter because I didn’t even want to wish for first place.
Moreover, since he had already kissed Loki, there was no problem.
“Now, have a drink!”
Kim Yoo-jung naturally sat next to Jae-hyun and filled her glass.
A glass of Jaehyun’s glass of solo liquor with a transparent light pours into it.
“Hey, what kind of alcohol are you filling up and pouring it like this?”
“Did you learn to drink from my dad? Why is there a problem?”
“… … How are you, Uncle?”
Jae-hyun immediately tried to relieve pressure and escaped from the trap set by Kim Yoo-jung.
However, Kim Yoo-jung ended up making Jae-hyun spew alcohol.
“Then~ Dad is waiting for you to call him your father-in-law when you become his son-in-law.”
When Jaehyun spits out his drink, Loki laughs and knocks on the table.
Jaehyun was seized with the urge to fold Loki’s waist in half, but he managed to hold back and catch his breath.
“Because I blew it. is it a reset? I’ll pour you another cup as it is, so drink it all up!”
Jaehyun was furious at Kim Yoojung’s words.
“hey! Did you still drink half?”
However, Kim Yoo-jung just smirked and filled the glass again.
If not, isn’t it the strong drink of Aegir?
This was a drink with an enormous strength that could intoxicate the believer.
Jaehyun, of course, didn’t have that, but now he has alcohol in his body.
Since mana was not being operated, there was no way to decipher it.
Thanks to that, Jaehyun’s head is getting a little hot and he’s getting drunk.
“I drank a cup, but I’m already feeling…” … strange? I give up here… … .”
“… I’ll follow you next.”
It was Seo Ina who picked up the bottle next.
Jaehyun had all sorts of worries in a short moment.
‘If you don’t drink here, Kim Yoo-jung will be elated, right? Plus, Ina will get pissed off… … .’
Surprisingly, Seo Ina tended to keep this in mind for a long time, so Jaehyun had no choice but to hold the glass forward.
Anyway, this has to be done quickly.
Jaehyun did a one-shot with that in mind.
“Okay, next is me.”
“I am next!”
the two following.
He had no choice but to accept Hella and Ruina’s alcohol.
In addition to this, Lee Jae-sang and Ahn Ho-yeon interrupted by saying that they looked funny without notice. Idun, Nidhogg, Kwon So-yul, and Loki, who were trying to make fun of them openly, all accepted the alcohol.
Thanks to that, it didn’t take that long for Jaehyun to get drunk.
After drinking dozens of drinks, Jaehyun’s tongue loosened slightly, and the pronunciation started leaking through his teeth.
Then, with a slightly reddened face, Jaehyun opened his mouth.
“I don’t think I’m drunk at all. Surprisingly, the alcohol seems a bit strong… … .”
A taboo word that only drunk people can utter.
The fact that Jaehyun spit out the words that he was not drunk means that the time has now come.
‘I might be able to hear Jaehyun’s intentions!’
Louisa’s eyes lit up.
Looking around, the other three were the same.
They are now allies rather than competitors.
They became one in mind and one in mind and asked Jaehyun, who was drunk.
“Jaehyun-nim, I have a question… … .”
Ruina got lucky first, and everyone’s eyes focused on her.
Jaehyun nodded and replied.
“Ugh… ? what is that… … .”
“Maybe that day… The day you called us all together. Jaehyun-nim, who was your favorite woman out of these?”
“… … .”
Jaehyun took another sip of his drink without saying anything and looked at Ruina for a while.
Then he stretched out his hand and stretched out her cheeks.
“Luna. Are you thinking of prying me out like that? Do I look like a hoe? Even though I’m still the best newcomer… … .”
Unfortunately for the four women, Jaehyun was the type to become three times more calm when undergoing injections, only slightly twisting his pronunciation.
By the way, Jaehyun had one more injection.
“You all listen carefully… … No matter how much I accept everything Make me drink like this! You can’t do that… This is something that even college seniors don’t do these days!”
It was an instructional message that reminded me of an elementary school principal.
Jaehyun muttered as he brought the filled glass back to his mouth.
“Anyway, no matter how much I am, it will be difficult if I keep being dragged here and there by you guys like Hogu… … .”
“who? You said you were dragged around like Hogu?”
Kwon So-yul, the best keeper of this lineage, shook his head as if he was dumbfounded.
However, Jaehyun sincerely thought so.
“Everyone is looking for me… … I mean it’s hard sometimes too. Every time I think of the things hanging over my shoulders, my heart feels stuffy as if my breath stops. still… … .”
Jaehyun laughed at his colleagues while talking nonchalantly.
“Thanks to everyone, I survived. thank you… … all.”
Coul… … .
Jaehyun thumped and fell asleep with his head on the table.
Those who watched this silently burst into laughter.
Everyone except Jaehyun was an accomplice who drank water, so the situation couldn’t be better.
I also thought it was reproducible.
Enduring even in absurdly difficult situations and overcoming day by day, trials.
Create a new world through harmony with other races.
It must have been difficult to recreate the whole process of balancing the world by killing Ymir.
Still, the reason why he was able to do it is not different.
Not because only you can do it, but to protect something precious.
Jaehyun’s unique skill, after all, was to protect someone, and he too.
The fact that others were also saved because of it.
That he was, in a sense, a savior.
Hella recalled this.
So did the others.
Of course, Jaehyun fell into a deep sleep snoring, not knowing that they were looking at him with such compassion and gratitude.
the day after the next day.
“Hey Kim Yoo-jung, it’s Inana! Louisa! hella! and all of you!! Wasn’t it strange that I drank and injected yesterday? crazy! I don’t remember!!”
Jaehyun was stunned and tired of imagining his own ugliness.
It was an expression that could be said to be desperate, which made everyone burst out laughing.
