The number of people at the night market seemed to be well over 100.
‘Is this what a goblin night market is?’
– Wow, it’s dreamy.
– Lanterns walk around!
– Snowmen also turn into lanterns haha.
Snowfall knew about this place.
‘The fate gate. It looks crowded at first glance, but it is not a very difficult gateway.’
Still, it was hard to know where to start since the number of fires that Kangseol possessed was five.
And in times like this, it was best to get help from a helper.
– I have no way. The magical part extends so far from my roots that I cannot figure it out in a short period of time.
Ur said this and remained motionless in the shadow space.
Perhaps the feeling of not being of much help caused his shame.
“Then… can you find Jamard?”
Jamard thought for a moment and then said.
– It is possible if it is one after another. But it will take some time. And some items belong to the fairies, not you, so tell them to find them.
Karen and Karuna were summoned to the ghosts’ night market.
“Did you hear? “The breath and the spark are in communication with you, so you will find them quickly.”
Karen answered, taking a clumsy salute posture.
“yep! “Please leave it to me!”
Kang Seol said as he saw Karen’s lively appearance.
“If an accident happens…”
Jamard said to Kangseol.
– You left without listening. Let’s just leave it alone for now and get on with our work.
Kang Seol walked through the night market, looking for his fortune.
A large ogre was holding a jujeonbeak from a stall and puffing out his cheeks.
When Kang Seol spoke to him, the wisps swallowed what they were chewing and answered.
[The unknown spirit is perplexed by your approach. How would you respond?]
1. Just one bite.
2. Have you ever seen me somewhere before?
3. The sight of eating is so delicious.
4. Haven’t you seen anyone who feels similar to me?
Jamad said to Kang Seol.
– Not this guy.
Kang Seol nodded and said.
“no. “Please finish eating.”
The soul swallows snacks again. Jamard gave a signal to Kangseol.
– It’s ahead.
Snowfall looked ahead at Jamard’s signal.
“Don’t do this…”
“Uh-huh… Who did something bad?”
“Don’t come closer…leave me alone.”
ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss you you, you, you thought mark, tawd thought mark thoughteldawadekkkkja situation was.
‘Who among them is that?’
– It is uncertain. You have to approach it to be sure.
Kang Seol had no choice but to get closer to the Parakhos and the woman.
‘How do I intervene?’
– That’s up to you.
“Ah… please let go of my hand.”
“Ehe? “Someone held my hand…”
Kang Seol held on, held on, and then intervened, saying a line he heard somewhere before.
“Stop doing it.”
– Ouch… What is this cliché
– Stop hunting!
– ‘What are you? me? This is a set that includes ‘This woman is her boyfriend’.
A large man who appeared to be the leader of the Parakho group approached Kang Seol.
“What are you?”
[The unknown spirit is repulsed by your approach. How would you respond?]
1. The only thing people do in groups is…
2. The other person doesn’t like it!
3. It’s my boyfriend!
4. I guess I need to take care of you.
That’s when Kangseol sighs and tries to choose something useful among the poor options.
Jamard brought hopeful news.
A little distorted news of hope.
– It’s in front.
Kang Seol asked the large soul who thought it was Parakho.
“Have you… seen me before?”
The Parakhos behind them asked in confusion as time continued to pass.
“hey! “What’s going on!”
“Stay still! “This guy…”
Big Horn stared at Snowfall and scratched the back of his head.
“I feel like I’ve seen it somewhere…”
Kangseol grabbed Hon’s wrist.
“Don’t you remember?”
“What are you doing here?”
“I’m sorry… I’m sorry… I didn’t mean to…”
“What are you sorry for?”
“I… I mean… I’m sorry for everything.”
As Kang Seol disappeared, taking the soul with him, the remaining souls looked at him with a bewildered expression.
“What is it?”
“hey? What about me? Why do I…”
* * *
Karen was immersed in the night market.
“Is this delicious?”
“Really? “It tastes pretty good, right?”
“What is it made of?”
“Poison Umbrella Frog.”
“Of course the poison was removed!”
“Oh, somehow it was delicious!”
“Shall I give you more?”
I think I was given some kind of important mission, but I couldn’t quite remember.
It was a characteristic and insidious trap of this fate gate.
When you walk through Inyeonmun Night Market, you will temporarily fall into a trance-like state.
Then, he gradually loses his memory and eventually even forgets who he is.
The owner of the gateway created this gateway, saying that if it were a truly precious item, its presence should be intuitively detectable.
Anyway, the trap was also affecting Karen.
“Oh… it tastes amazing.”
“That’s my own work!”
Karen was in the middle of eating when someone poked her thigh.
“What kind of child are you?”
“… Little kids?”
There were some young children standing nearby who looked somewhat familiar.
she asked the children, feeling a sense of déjà vu.
“What do you guys want to eat too?”
“Ha… Actually, I’m too nice and that’s the problem.”
Karen also handed out food on skewers to them.
They, who looked like brother and sister, divided the food in half and ate it to the full.
“Seup… do you want more?”
“Just this one time.”
One by one, the skewers piled up and promises were not kept.
After a while.
A mountain of skewers occupied a corner of the stall.
“What is this… did you guys eat this much?”
“Noona ate more.”
“I am a person who eats with my own money!”
“We just took what she gave us…” “
… Look at these? “You guys calculate it and let’s see.”
Karen asked, putting her hand into her bosom.
“How much is the owner?”
“Wow, I ate a lot. “There are 2 million ghosts in total.”
“Are you sure you don’t use gold coins or anything like that?”
“goldfinch? “What do you use something like that for?”
“Kahaha… Wait a minute, the kids keep causing trouble.”
She lowered her head and spoke to her young siblings.
“Are you guys running fast?”
“No… not that fast.”
Karen said with a cold expression.
“That’s too bad. “I’m fast.”
Karen quickly ran away.
The owner was startled and pointed at Karen with his finger.
“Now catch it!”
“sister! “Let’s go together!”
The siblings could barely keep up with Karen’s lightning speed, but their owner lost sight of her.
Karen took a deep breath and looked for Snowfall.
“Huh… Huh… Who is chasing me?”
When Karen turned around, the brother and sister she had met earlier were staring at her blankly.
“See, I said there was rapport.”
“Well, I’ve come to the right place.”
Karen tilted her head at the incomprehensible words.
“I asked you to find the item.”
“ah! Ah… But?”
“You came to the right place, right? “Two friends.”
When I carefully checked the siblings’ energies, I found that the younger sister was emitting an energy very similar to the sword Karen was handling.
“Maybe it’s because they are items related to Magra, so they have a similar energy.”
Then your brother will be a fire monkey.
Karen said with a shy smile.
“Did you ask me to leave it to you?”
At that time, Karuna walked with a soul from over there. Kang Seol asked.
“Did you find it?”
“Where were you?”
“To the lake…”
Karuna was able to quickly find the whereabouts of the breath, perhaps because he had been in communication with it for a long time.
After receiving Snowfall’s order, Karuna looked for a spirit that radiated energy similar to her own.
When he approached the place where he could feel the energy, he saw a woman sitting in front of a large lake.
Karuna approached and spoke to me.
“What are you looking at?”
“Maybe I… was waiting for someone.”
He gently placed his hand on Breath’s shoulder.
“So… that was you.”
Unlike Karen, she handled her work quietly and perfectly.
Karuna successfully regained Kangseol’s breath.
With this, Kang Seol, who had recovered 4 non-exclusive items, was left with only the last non-exclusive item to collect.
While Kangseol was wondering where to start looking for the remaining items, Karen suddenly spoke urgently to Kangseol.
“Say I don’t have one!”
“Uh… us too…”
Three people hiding next to the group.
Immediately, a stiff soul approached Kang Seol.
“Didn’t you see the frivolous spirit that was here?”
At first glance, it was Karen.
“Yes. “The spirit ran away without paying the price after eating, so we are looking for it at the request of the owner.”
Even if I just listened to it, it seemed like Karen would have said that.
But Jamard, who was quietly listening to the story, laughed.
“Hey, I found everything.”
“It’s this guy.”
Kangseol stared at Hon at Jamad’s words and then laughed along with him.
“Is that you?”
Let Kang Seol place his hand on Soul’s body.
“What did you do… huh?”
“Let’s get out of here.”
Karen and the children who were hiding from the group jumped up and harassed the orderly.
“Why are you surprised!”
“I’m surprised! surprised!”
When the soul of matter took shape, the snowfall looked like a big family.
Anyway, my work here is finished.
“Now all I have to do is get out of here…let’s ask.”
Kangseol went to a stall in a corner and asked.
“Where do I get out of here?”
“Hey… you can go that way.”
“But are you taking it out?”
Kang Seol was startled and looked at his right arm.
The spirit of a child was hanging in the air, caught by the clothes around the nape of the neck.
A child struggling.
– Ugh what the f*ck is this?
– Is it you again, a kleptomaniac?
– If you let your guard down, you keep holding something in your hand. Haha.
Different souls colored in various colors.
However, this soul was alone and black.
Kangseol put down the child.
At Inyeonmun Gate, the third gateway to the Ghost Gate, you were not allowed to touch other people’s belongings other than your own.
‘Because it’s going against fate. Later, you will have to pay a severe penalty.’
Kang Seol nodded and decided not to take the child.
But the woman in charge of the stall smiled and said.
Kang Seol looked at his right hand again.
When I came to my senses, I saw him holding up the black soul again.
The woman in the stall said.
“It seems like they are a good match for each other.”
“It looks like he wants it too, so why don’t you take him?”
Kang Seol looks at the black soul for a moment.
Then he lowered his head for a moment and sighed.
“Ha… do you want to go with me?”
Taking the items out was also a problem, but when the items were taken out ‘forcibly’ against their will, even Snow Seol could not be spared the aftereffects.
But this black soul nodded its head up and down furiously, wondering what was so good about it.
“I can’t help it. Then… what should I do with this kleptomania…”
Kang Seol headed toward the door in the direction the woman pointed.
Kangseol disappeared beyond the door along with his belongings, and the spirit from the next stall approached the woman left behind.
“Are you sane to recommend Yahum’s items?”
“Hehehe… You won’t be able to take it out anyway. Yahum will definitely punish him severely!”
“Oh my… that was what you were aiming for from the beginning! Indeed… it will be a fun sight to see.”

[You have reached the end of the Ghost Gate.]
[A linked adventure continues.]
[This adventure is very dangerous.]
[You can only obtain rewards when all adventures are over.]
[The next adventure begins.]
[ The twenty-eighth adventure begins.]
[Adventure 28. Master of the Ghost Gate]
When Kang Seol opened the door and entered, a person covered in blood and Philia with dark eyes were waiting.
‘It looks like you’ve been through some hardships.’
Han Yeo-myeong and Philia could not welcome Kang Seol happily. Their minds were not so sound.
However, since they also belong to the axis of the powerful, they did not show it.
“… the sound of drums?”
A magnificent drum sound and a sound similar to gourds were heard, as if a military band from the East had arrived.
Hung Hung Hung…
The dark son-in-law gradually became brighter.
Candles were lined up at regular intervals around the area.
“It’s been a while… since I felt life.”
A line of ghosts appeared. They have a body similar to that of a human, but their face is extremely ferocious.
“You came with greed, an ugly greed.”
“What do you want?”
Han Yeo-myeong and Philia held their weapons in their hands and held them out.
said one of the ghosts.
“Greed! But greed is the ultimate power!”
“Because greed is what allows me to do anything! Heeheehee! good night!”
“But what do you want?”
The ghost asked Kang Seol.
“I have no intention of answering you.”
“Does not matter! Hehe….”
One of the ghosts stepped forward. And he pointed at one person with his finger.
“you! “I will deal with Whinin of the Gust of Wind!”
Another ghost appeared and pointed at Philia.
“Gozom of Steel will deal with you.”
Another ghost stepped forward and pointed at Snowfall.
At that moment, a heavy voice like thunder came from behind the ghosts.
“Stay back… hee hee hee hee!”
“You all… You’re annoying, so get out!”
The sound of drums and beats.
The ghosts were scared and retreated to both sides.
Eventually, the darkness that had obscured my vision became a little lighter.
Han Yeo-myeong and Philia let out a shocked expression.
A ghost the size of an adult ogre was lying on its side, looking at the snowfall and smiling.
“You arrogant human… were you planning on taking my things with you?”
Kang Seol looked at the black spirit and laughed in bewilderment.
‘Was this… Yahum’s item? Somehow…’
Yahum stood up.
It was big, but the energy was very heavy.
“You… will receive no reward.”
“Because you will not be able to overcome this Jahum. Heeheeheehee!”
If someone steals something from the night market, Yahum deals with it directly. Yahum is the master of this ghost gate.
It is as strong as all the other ghosts combined.
“The thief… must be punished appropriately… Is that right? “I have to crush it and make it into a weapon!”
Yahum put the stick with the thorns on the ground and said,
Kangseol confronted Yahum and said,
“Let’s be clear about the thief.”
Snowfall was not intimidated even in this situation. That’s because he came here from the beginning with the intention of dealing with Yahum.
“He is a robber, not a thief.”
“You don’t know the topic!”
All the souls next to Kangseol returned to their gear form.
And the black soul turned into black gloves. Snowfall quickly threw off her old gloves and put on black gloves.
“But armed robbers are better than petty thieves.”
As a shadow surrounded Kang Seol’s body, a message came to mind.
[Ghost – Extinction from the world: Yahum’s goblin gloves activate.]
