Neither Jong-chan nor Dong-seok said a word.
As the sun went down and it was night, two people were brought into the Seyoung Villa just as planned.
And one more minute, one more minute, 30 minutes have already passed.
It was less than 10 p.m., let alone midnight, so the villa was lit up with bright lights in every house.
On the contrary, it drove Jong-chan and Dong-seok’s chest down coldly.
The news of two of his subordinates was lost right in front of his eyes in a seemingly intact town with no people coming and going and no lights out.
As Dong-seok sent the two away, he gave instructions firmly.
If there was a strange corner, it would pop out immediately, and if that wasn’t the case, I told him to wave his arm, which was screaming as he jumped off the roof railing.
But after 30 minutes, there was no commotion.
Dongseok looked back with a face hardened like a stone.
A small alleyway between commercial buildings and buildings.
More than 30 men are crouching inside.
What is unusual is that each person is carrying a long cylindrical fishing rod storage case on their shoulder.
Dongseok gestured towards them.
“Huh? That one?”
You can’t hear anything outside the convenience store.
However, the visual disturbance felt as if passing by, he looked out involuntarily and then opened his eyes.
It was because of a group of people crossing the road.
Mingi intuitively felt something suspicious.
It wasn’t just that the group was all men.
Numbers are the problem.
‘What are so many?’
When I quickly counted, there were over thirty people.
The neighborhood doesn’t have a big pub for parties or gatherings, and it’s really rare to see such a large number of men flocking to it.
It is also strange that everyone has a fishing rod on their shoulder.
It’s not really a fishing outfit either.
People passing by at night seemed to stare at them at least once.
However, since it’s a rare scene, people just threw their gazes once in a while and didn’t pay much attention to it.
But it wasn’t Mingi.
just as expected.
Min-gi’s suspicions, which held his gaze until they crossed all the roads, witnessed a decisive scene that puts a wedge in his suspicions that it was not in vain.
This is because the large number of suspicious groups all rushed into the Seyeong Villa.
Mingi didn’t hesitate like last time.
‘Even if the report is wrong, it’s okay to say that it was a misunderstanding.’
Thinking like that, Mingi pressed the keypad on her cell phone.
However, he could not stop his fingertips from trembling due to unfamiliar tension.
“Hey, hello? The police station? I have something to report…”
The same seat and some shared the elevator, and the rest quietly climbed the stairs by making as much noise as possible.
Then, people gathered on the 5th floor and stood in front of the iron gate leading to the roof, shoulder-to-shoulder enough to be cramped on the stairs leading to the roof.
The iron door was slightly open, defenseless, with the door lock unlocked.
When Dong-seok gave his chin, he opened the lid by dragging the fishing rod case that his subordinates were carrying on their shoulders.
All they take out one by one are iron sticks or baseball bats.
At Dongseok’s signal, everyone stopped the sound of footsteps and went up the stairs.
The old noise of the iron door opening the roof door echoed unusually and clearly.
The first two people went missing, and immediately after that, the news of the two co-workers who had been with them today was cut off right in front of their noses.
For this reason, even after they had completely entered the rooftop, they did not approach the rooftop room hastily, but they all poured out onto the roof and looked around each other once until the stone came up.
Dong-seok, who was the last to climb up to the roof, glanced over the ordinary rooftop, which was nothing special, and then turned his gaze to the rooftop room.
At a quick glance, the rooftop room, with the lights turned off and with no light visible, seemed uninhabited.
But neither Dongseok nor the group could think so.
The house in question must have something to do with the disappearance of the four colleagues.
Following Dongseok’s gesture, some of them surrounded the rooftop door in a fan shape, while the rest stood crossed in front of the front door in a zigzag manner, ready to enter.
Dong-seok raised his hand and gestured to enter the rooftop room.
Jong-chan, who was only looking at the rooftop of Seyoung Villa from the ground, accidentally dropped a cigarette in his hand.
This is because the epicenter of the sudden sound of heavy hitting was clearly above the villa.
He was a man who lived more than 20 years in fist life.
Even when I heard the sound, I immediately knew that it was the sound of hitting a person in the head with a blunt weapon.
I just wanted to make a sound that was so bloody that it resonated in the sky because of how I hit it.
Back! Back! Back! Back!
Jong-chan rubbed his face with his sweaty bare hands, then pulled out a cigarette and lit it.
Tension leaked from the hand that turned on the lighter.
The continuous sound made Jong-chan’s head complicated.
It was because I couldn’t understand the situation as to what was going on.
Is it the sound of someone in the damn rooftop room clattering, or conversely, the sound of subordinates being hit one by one?
That was then.
Jong-chan, who was smoking a cigarette and staring at the roof railing, widened his eyes.
This is because someone’s upper body suddenly turned bloody and protruded from the roof railing.
Then, isn’t that why you put your legs on the railing and stick your body out as if you were going to jump?
Jong-chan belatedly found out that the bloody guy was the 2nd team leader Yeom Dong-seok, and called it the sauce.
Whatever happened, his neat suit was torn like a rag, and his movements did not look normal, as if he had been seriously injured.
Dong-seok found Jong-chan with half his body on the railing and opened his mouth.
At that moment, a large, thick forearm protruded from the roof and covered Dong-seok’s mouth.
For a moment, I saw Dong-seok struggling like crazy in Jong-chan’s sight.
It’s like having a seizure on something.
Jongchan opened his mouth and flinched.
It was because Dongseok, whose mouth was blocked by his mouth, was not afraid to die, so he flew himself from the top of the villa on the 5th floor.
Another arm protruded from beyond the roof and grabbed Dong-seok’s head with one hand the size of a pot lid.
Then, Dong-seok’s body, whose mouth was closed and only the top of his head, was suspended in the air like a pulley pendulum and swayed and stopped falling.
Then, Dong-seok’s body, which had been dangling in mid-air and writhing as if trembling, disappeared inside the roof as if being sucked into the darkness.
‘Hey, what is that? what’s inside me… what happened… ?’
Jong-chan’s black eyes fluttered like a frightened child.
