“Oh wait. Please wait, please wait. Hey, wait a minute. Do not go!”
Despite my dissuasion, the monsters quickly left the hall like office workers on a Friday evening.
Why are you so cool?
Guys, do you have anything to say to me?
When they evacuate, they also take them with them and rush in…
I was just devastated in the empty final hall after all the monsters had escaped.
I never thought the plan would go so wrong from the very first step.
“Well, they’re all gone. “Didn’t you have business with them?”
Ban Seo-jin glanced at me, scratching his head with a troubled expression.
I nodded absentmindedly.
“I thought you would persuade me a little more and then attack. I was surprised.”
Ah… I was filled with thoughts of having to take the lead, so stop… The
final hall was a rare opportunity for all the kings to gather in one place.
It would be foolish to just blow away this opportunity. It’s
already a decisive battle with a predator . Since there are only about 10 hours left until the end, I thought that if I could use this time to negotiate with all the kings, I would save myself the trouble of going to each and every one of them. “After all, wouldn’t it have been better
not to appeal to force earlier?”
Seo Ji-han shook his head at my belated regret.
– No, that was absolutely necessary. There’s no way they would follow a weak king. Besides, there were monsters that came to see you just now. “That’s right.
But it’s a bit of a problem that the power was too strong. It may have been… Or, I attacked too suddenly…”
In fact, attacking the monster that did not accept the communication punishment right away was a kind of show of force.
I planned to take the lead by showing that I was overwhelmingly strong and then negotiate.
If you show strength like this, you’ll think, ‘You’re incredibly strong!’ I thought there would be some kings who would be persuaded by saying, ‘I think you can win!’, but you ran away like this without even looking back.
It’s really unexpected.
– Ugh, I didn’t expect it to turn out like this. I’m sorry…
Seo Ji-han apologized sullenly.
He seemed to be blaming himself because he was the one who first proposed this suppression operation.
“I’m sorry. Who knew it would turn out like this? “It’s because I used my skills too strongly.”
– No, you did a lot of controlling. The grade suddenly went up so much that it would have been difficult to add or subtract.
“It was like that. Ah, then they say it’s because the other guys are too scared! They got so scared that they killed those two and they all ran away. Aren’t you embarrassed as a king? Anyway, Seo Ji-han, you don’t have to blame yourself too much.”
Despite my consolation, Seo Ji-han was still depressed.
I tried to look calm and opened my mouth, looking at the others.
“For now, let’s go back. “Everyone will be waiting.”
Inwardly, I wanted to go back in triumph, thinking, ‘The negotiations went well and my Chungwangpo grade was raised a lot!’, but I was very disappointed.
I didn’t want to show it, but I couldn’t help but feel weak walking.
However, after going back to the lakeside and listening to Elfanis’ story, I felt like I understood why the monsters in the hall quickly ran away.
“The fact that he has survived until now means that he is a king with a very cautious personality. He probably didn’t come out of the dungeon even after the dungeon’s walls disappeared. “I was just holding my breath.”
Elfanis was calm, as if she had been expecting it.
He smiled as if he was troubled when I looked at him pleading, “Okay, then, why didn’t you tell me in advance?”
“Still, I didn’t know that all the kings would run away. “You must have some sort of pride.”
Even if you reflect on it later, it is always too late to regret it.
We can’t change what happened in the past, so we need to quickly decide what to do next.
“Now that things are like this, I guess I’ll have no choice but to visit them one by one and persuade them as much as I can. “I still have a little over 9 hours.”
“It won’t be easy.”
Although these words seemed cold at first glance, there was deep concern in Elfanis’ eyes.
It seemed like he was worried that I might be disappointed if I had high hopes.
“Even if it’s not easy, you have to do it.”
“That’s true, but…”
After hesitating for a moment, Elfanis added cautiously.
“I’m telling you this just in case, but how about selecting a territory in advance to take with you in case you evacuate…”
“I won’t evacuate.”
I cut him off resolutely.
Elfanis looked at Rodran for a moment and then nodded to me as if he understood.
I looked at my mother and Seungju and emphasized once again,
“We will not evacuate.”
Maybe Elfanis, who is tired of being an endless fugitive, hates refuge more than me.
But he had Rodran.
If Seungju, my mother, and my precious people had awakened, I might have chosen to flee.
But me and Elfanis . His position was different.
And after hearing his words, I became confident again.
I was very disappointed because I did not get any horns in the hall.
So I regretted that I should have given some horns to Pergis’ subordinates before starting the hall and inherited them, but it was good that I didn’t. .
If he had inherited a lot of horns, there was a high possibility that Fergis would have had a different mind.
“I felt this while going through the final hall, and maybe I can win like this. It’s a L17 Chungwangpo. So far, I’m the only king who has had skills this strong.” Don’t you?”
“That’s right. But…”
“Anyway, I don’t have much time, so I’ll take a look around the dungeon and then come back.”
I think my current level is enough, but there is no harm in raising my skill level further. When
I got up from my seat, Seohu Ban, who had been silent the whole time, called me.
“Wait a minute.”
“Actually, there are a lot of requests coming in from all over the world right now, so if it’s okay, wouldn’t you give us some time?”
“After the message announced by the Final Hall, there are many people approaching this side. I received a call from the side that blocked the four knights before… Wouldn’t it be better to just refuse?”
Seo-hoo Ban’s gaze was fixed on him as if he were shouting, “What kind of bullshit are you talking about in a situation where every minute and second of persuading the boss monster is a waste?” Seo-jin Ban’s gaze was especially frightening. “Are you kidding me, Seo-hu Ban? A request like that is out of your line
” “It should have been resolved.”
“I was going to do that, but after learning about the evacuation, they actually wanted to make more contact.”
“Just ignore it.”
To be honest, I also had the same opinion as Ban Seo-jin.
However, as Ban Seo-hu said, it was true that I was indebted to his connections, so I felt uncomfortable pretending not to know.
Ha yeah. It would be okay to come back for a while.
I also have business over there.
“all right. But I really don’t have much time, so it’s about 30 minutes at most. “If the conversation goes sluggish, I will leave right away, so please warn that person.”
In response to my answer, Seohu Ban nodded with a rare bright expression.
And then I headed to the spot they had prepared, but to sum it up… it wasn’t a complete waste of time.
But I was very mentally exhausted.
International Hunter Association.
These are the people I met.
I have never contacted them directly, but it seems that Ban Seo-hu tried very hard to persuade them before the dungeon defense wall collapsed.
But we all know the result.
So, I went there prepared to be treated quite coldly, but guess what?
Everyone stood up, craned their necks, and waited for me to enter the conference room.
Even just by looking at it, it was clear that it welcomed me.
It seems like a lie that they ignored and mistreated all the information they gave me.
Well, you’re saying your feet are on fire right now, right?
The newly built conference room of the International Hunter Association was very nice.
It smelled like money had been poured into it, with decorations and geometric structures placed here and there without being excessive.
But what was most impressive was the sky seen through the large dome-shaped dormer window of the conference hall.
It wasn’t meant to be pretty or anything like that.
“The moon looks a little dented. Isn’t that because of my mood?”
The full moon seen through the wide dormer window had its edges slightly peeled off, like a cookie that someone had taken a bite out of.
Seohu Ban, who was next to me, quickly explained my reaction.
“It was chewed up by a predator.”
In response to my dumbfounded expression, Seohu Ban calmly replied, “
Ionickel, a predator that was blocked by the secondary barrier surrounding the Earth, was trying to break through the barrier somehow, but suddenly discovered the moon nearby and went towards it and started eating the moon.” “No, I was bored while waiting, so I ate some snacks .
It’s not like this, but the moon? Is that okay? What if the moon disappears? Are you still eating it? If we eat it all, won’t we be ruined?”
“Calm down. Right now, the secondary barrier has collapsed and it is hurtling back toward Earth, so the moon is safe. It is now consuming it near the orbit of the satellite. It looks like the final barrier has been deployed around that time.”
After hearing that story, I understand why this arrogant HUN hastily opened his ears and started listening to us.
Some crazy monster has appeared, gnawing at the moon and ravaging the satellite, and he thought, ‘If I send out the hunters, something will work out.’ If so, it’s not just optimistic, it’s crazy.
They couldn’t just sit by and watch, so they used all kinds of missiles and modern heavy weapons to attack the predators.
I didn’t want to see news talking about ‘Sonmoa’, so I intentionally did it. I didn’t even know about this news because I was avoiding the internet.
They must have been busy trying to clean up the city that was devastated by the monster infestation on the eve of the night. It seems like they did their best.
However, despite their efforts, none of their attacks worked on the predator
. Just when I was keenly aware that I was different from other monsters I had seen so far, I suddenly heard unfamiliar news that I had become the ruler of the hall. In addition, there was even a message telling me to evacuate. The reason why they
to meet me so much was,
“If you evacuate with us, we will move forward.” “I will actively cooperate!”
