Soo-hyuk was puzzled by Cordell’s words.
‘He was waiting for me?’
Why did he wait? While Soo-hyuk was wondering, Cordell walked to the front of the stairs, and the wizard standing between Soo-hyuk and Cordell slipped to the side and went down.
“Can I talk with you for a minute?”, Cordell asked, when the other wizard had left and they were the only ones there.
“What is this about?…”
Soo-hyuk responded with a question.
“Well, it might be an embarrassing story for you to hear…..”, Cordell said, starting his narration.
And at Cordell’s words, Soo-hyuk narrowed his brow.
“It seems that the Towermaster is in love with you, Soo-hyuk.”
“… … Love?”
Love? What is this all of a sudden?
Cordell nodded and Soo-hyuk asked again.
“So, you are saying that Brinis is in love with me?”
At Soo-hyuk’s question, Cordell nodded again.
At Cordell’s nod, Soo-hyuk stayed silent. What should he say in the current situation?
‘What the hell is he talking about?’
He honenstly wanted to scream his question, but, because he couldn’t just say that, he kept the question to himself.
‘Why does the Lord of the Tower of Fire love me?’
It was too sudden. They hadn’t met often. Once before, once yesterday. There have been only two meetings.
And both meetings were meetings of an romantic kind.
So, why did Brinis love him? Soo-hyuk couldn’t understand.
“I know it’s embarrassing.”
Did he notice Soo-hyuk’s thoughts?
“By the way, she is the kind of woman who falls in love on a whim like that….”
At Cordell’s words, Soo-hyuk sighed exhaustedly.
“But why are you telling me that?”
Then he asked. Why did he tell Soo-hyuk that Brinis was in love?
Is he telling him to commit to a relationship with her?
“If you reciprocate her feelings, the Towermaster will really…..”
Cordell tried to answer Soo-hyuk’s question and shuddered at the thought.
“She will shower you with gifts.”
“… … shower me with gifts?”
“Yes, she will try to gift you everything, whether it’s expensive jewelry or paintings. She doesn’t think of the tower’s finances, she will just give presents over presents.”
“And the recipient of that will most likely be you.”
Soo-hyuk couldn’t say anything to Cordell. He didn’t know what to say in the current situation.
‘I don’t think he’s lying.’
Cordell’s look was so serious. Besides, there was no reason to lie. What would he gain by lying about this?
“The reason I told you this is….. I would like you to decline the gifts from Brinis. If you refuse her, I’ll get what you need. So, please…”
The moment Cordell’s words were over, a quest appeared.
Cordell knows what happens when Brinis falls in love. Cordell is convinced that Brinis will like you and will go on a spending spree like in the past.
Cordell doesn’t want you to accept gifts from Brinis. Of course, you won’t remain empty-handed.
Cordell intends to get you what you need if you don’t receive her gifts.
You have to choose whether to accept the gift from Brinis or get what you need from Cordell.
Quest Reward: ???
Significantly increases intimacy with Cordell upon acceptance of the quest
Significant decrease in intimacy with Cordell when quest is rejected
After seeing the quest, Soo-hyuk sighed.
‘What is this?’
It was an unexpected quest.
Quests that appear suddenly are usually annoying. This time, of course, he thought it would also be such a quest. But it wasn’t.
It was a quest that caused him a smile, not annoyance.
‘In the end, it means that whatever I choose, I will receive it.’
Whether he accepted the quest or not, he would get what he needed Nevertheless.
‘I don’t know why this quest appeared.’
Soo-hyuk did nothing. He didn’t understand why such a good quest appeared.
‘Who do I choose?’
He didn’t understand, but looking at Cordell’s eyes waiting for an answer, it seemed that he had to make a choice soon. Soo-hyuk looked at the quest and thought.
‘Cordell would be better.’
When he thought about it, it was a quest that had a choice in the first place.
If he refused, the intimacy would drop significantly. The relationship with Cordell wasn’t really important, but it wasn’t that the decline in intimacy was irrelevant.
“Okay. If you give me the items I need, I will refuse her.”
Having made the decision, Soo-hyuk responded to Cordell, who was waiting for an answer.
[You have accepted the quest ‘Cordell’s Request’.]
[Intimacy with Cordell, the Vice-Lord of the Tower, has greatly increased.]
[Completed the quest “Cordell’s Request”]
Upon answering, a message appeared and Cordell expressed gratitude.
“No. I’ll see you if I need anything later.”
“Yes! If you have anything you need, please tell me.”
After speaking, Soo-hyuk and Cordell smiled at each other.
‘Cordell, has he prepared everything?’
Brinis called Cordell.
“Here you go.”
And Cordell reached out. Cordell’s hand held a black bag. However, Soo-hyuk’s gaze wasn’t on Brinis and Cordell. It wasn’t even on the black bag.
‘That’s a subspace.’
If the user had inventory, the NPC had a subspace. Soo-hyuk’s gaze was on Cordell’s subspace.
It was then.
The subspace disappeared, and Soo-hyuk turned back to see Brinis.
Then Brinis called Soo-hyuk as if she had been waiting.
When Soo-hyuk responded, Brinis smiled and pushed out the black bag she had received from Cordell.
“The stuff you wrote down yesterday is in here.”
“Oh, thank you.”
Soo-hyuk, who got up while expressing his gratitude, received a black bag.
[Acquired Cordell’s magic bag.]
Soo-hyuk put the bag in his inventory and used it straight away, after which countless messages started to appear.
[Acquires 10 Soul Stones of Advanced Demons.]
The message ended with the soul stone of the advanced demons, and Soo-hyuk opened the quest window and checked the 2nd list.
Soo-hyuk smiled. Most of the quest [Complete] buttons were active. Soo-hyuk clicked the [Complete] button to start learning the skill.
[You have completed the skill quest ‘Fire Field’.]
[You have acquired the skill “Fire Field”?
Another message feast followed. Of course, it was a message that did not need to be checked, so Soo-hyuk did not give attention to the message.
“I would like to see you use magic, if it’s possible?”
Brinis asked while Soo-hyuk was completing the quests and learning the skills.
[You have completed the skill quest ‘Hellfire’.]
[You have acquired the skill ‘Hellfire’.]
Soo-hyuk, who finished all of the skill quests where the [Complete] button was active after Hellfire, responded with a smile.
“Well, a little bit cramped in here.”
Brinis smiled and raised a cane. And she swung the staff.
As she swung the cane, the surrounding space became agitated. And soon the distorted space was restored and Soo-hyuk arrived in a new space other than Brinis’ room.
‘Where is this?’
Soo-hyuk looked around. There was nothing around. It was empty.
As if she had noticed Soo-hyuk’s curiosity, Brinis said,
“It’s my training room.”
Cordell looked at the place where Soo-hyuk and Brinis just had been.
“She couldn’t have warped without me by mistake. Then it means that she deliberately warped like that…”
Brinis couldn’t have made that mistake, so it’s a story that she and Soo-hyuk deliberately warped alone.
“I was curious too…”
Cordell, too, was curious about the magic of Soo-hyuk, who has a talent beyond measure. However, it seemed like he had to wait to the next time until he could satisfy his curiosity.
Soon after, Cordell shook his head and left the room.
“Is it possible to cast magic in here?”
“Yes, there are powerful magic defenses engraved on each wall as well as on the floor and ceiling, so feel free to cast magic!”
“Which magic should I cast first?”
It was Brinis who wanted to see the magic cast. So, Soo-hyuk asked Brinis.
“Well, it’s the most powerful magic you can cast. Ah! But it has to be fire magic and not poison magic.
Soo-hyuk opened the skill window at Brinis’ words.
‘If it has to be the strongest fire spell…’
And began to check the spells. And soon Soo-hyuk was able to find the most powerful fire spell.
Proficiency: Beginner level 1 (0%)
Special Effect: 100% chance to inflict burns on the target.
Cooldown: 5 minutes
Casting time: 30 seconds
It was Hellfire. Hellfire was currently the most powerful of Soo-hyuk’s fire magic.
‘It’s actually 30 seconds, but should I try to cast it in 10 seconds?’
Soo-hyuk thought while looking at Hellfire’s casting time. Soo-hyuk was able to shorten the casting time of all magic by 20 seconds due to the skill “Hemp Master”.
The cast time of Hell Fire was 30 seconds. Even if it was reduced by 20 seconds, it was still necessary to cast for 10 seconds.
‘It won’t be necessary to use Yarion’s Wrath.’
If he equipped Yarion’s Wrath, he could show a stronger spell.
However, it seemed that there was no need to wear Yarion’s Wrath in a situation where all he had to do was demonstrate the spell.
Soo-hyuk casted Hellfire.
The casting bar appeared and 10 seconds later, the casting bar disappeared and a small flower of fire appeared. And before one second passed, the small flame disappeared.
It was not that he failed to cast the magic.
The small flame disappeared and soon appeared in a place designated Soo-hyuk.
It couldn’t be called a small spark anymore. The small flame was enormously growing in size and burning the designated place.
‘It’s bigger than I thought?’
Hellfire is not a wide area magic. Nevertheless, Hellfire had a fairly wide area of effect.
It was then.
Joojojo Tto Jjo
Leaks appeared on the wall. Not exactly the wall, but the magic defenses that were engraved on the wall appeared. It was evident because of Hellfire’s destructive power.
‘I’m able to do that?’
Was it normal for leaks to appear? No, it shouldn’t be normal. Soo-hyuk turned his head and looked at Brinis. And Soo-hyuk could see.
The embarrassment and surprise in Brinis’ expression.
