“What? Lilith? Really?”
Karan asked with a surprised expression.
“Don’t remind me. Just thinking about that bitch is awful.”
Pigeon answered with a voice full of anger.
“That’s why she was expelled.”
Karan was unable to attend the meeting due to working even on the weekend.
Karan’s face was full of shock when he learned of Lilith’s betrayal only a day later.
It was then.
Karan paused and exclaimed absentmindedly.
“What is it?”
Pigeon also stopped walking. Then he saw Karan.
Karan looked forward and was stunned.
What made him stop walking? Why did he have a confused expression?
Pigeon turned his head to see where Karan was looking.
But there was nothing where Karan was staring.
Pigeon looked at Karan again.
Karan was still showing a confused expression.
“What is it? Why are you looking like that?”
Pigeon asked Karan. Why was he doing this all of a sudden?
“… … I just saw Lilith.”
Karan replied to Pigeon’s question.
“Did you see that bitch Lilith?”
“Yes, but… …”
Karan muttered, blurring his words.
“There was a guild mark.”
“What? You said she entered the guild already? Aren’t you mistaken?”
“I guess I could be wrong,….”
At the words of Pigeon, Karan nodded.
He saw it, but it seemed unbelievable.
“….because it was the Dokgo guild’s mark.”
“Wouldn’t it be a problem this time?”
Rooting said in a worried voice.
“What kind of problem are you talking about?”
Sun’n’stars tilted his head and asked.
“That we’ve taken Lilith in.”
At Rooting’s words, the Sun’n’stars nodded understandingly. Rooting continued watching Sun’n’stars nodding his head.
“Obviously, it could look bad for our guild.”
Yeon-jeung would not stay still. He would certainly protest.
“With Lilith being exposed under these circumstances…”
Rooting blurred the end.
Without Lilith, they could just deny everything that the ‘Reader’ guild said. They didn’t have any evidence against the Dokgo guild.
Therefore, they could just deny the ‘Reader’ guild’s accusations. But now with Lilith being exposed as Dokgo guild’s spy?
They couldn’t deny it.
“Of course, if there’s evidence, we can’t deny it.”
Sun’n’stars replied with a grin.
At the answer from Sun’n’stars, Rooting looked puzzled, and Sun’n’stars continued.
“But, we can deny it.”
As Rooting said, if there was no Lilith, they could just deny what the ‘Reader’ guild said.
“But we have to do it right.”
But how they did it was important.
“Because of the things that happened in the past, people would most likely believe the ‘Reader’ Guild even if we were to deny it.”
“To the public our denial will seem like lies.”
When they’re denying these accusations lies wouldn’t be of help.
“But with Lilith, the story is different.”
“If Yeon-jeung expelled her. We can use that. Lilith was expelled after a fight with Yeon-jeung and accepted the Expulsion to relieve the resentment.”
“..Will they believe that?”
Rooting tilted his head.
Would people really believe it?
“Haha, there will probably be more people who don’t believe in it.”
Sun’n’stars said, laughing out loud.
“But there will be some people who believe our words.”
There were many people in the world. And surely there would be those who would believe the words of the Dokgo Guild.
“Whatever we do, our reputation will take some damage. However, if it goes according to plan, the ‘Reader’ guild’s reputation will also be harmed.”
“You want to drag them down with you.”
“Indeed. Probably, in the ‘Reader’ guild, there will be disputes. We might have brought some cursing our way, but the ‘Reader’ guild won’t be left alone either? Hehe.”
The Sun’n’stars, who imagined the ‘Reader’ guild being cursed at, laughed as if he felt a little better.
“Okay. But what are you going to do about Yarion’s Wrath?”
Understanding why Lilith was accepted into the guild, Rooting asked a second question. It was about Yarion’s Wrath.
Originally they were supposed to kill Soo-hyuk to stop Yarion’s Wrath being auctioned.
But they couldn’t kill Soo-hyuk. In addition, as Yeon-jeung learned of their plan, he would protect Soo-hyuk more thoroughly. In other words, it was impossible to stop the auction.
Sun’n’stars, who was actually laughing, said with a bitter expression at Rooting’s question.
“We just have to succeed the auction.”
Soo-hyuk pulled out a book and looked at the remaining books on the shelf.
‘I’ll read everything by tomorrow noon.’
There weren’t many books left.
The amount wasn’t small enough to be finished today, but not so much that he could finish by tomorrow noon.
‘I’m glad there is a library that I can use right after.’
Although there were not many books left, Soo-hyuk’s expression was not anxious.
This was because there was a library that could be used immediately afterwards.
Soo-hyuk, looking at the rest of the book, turned to the desk. And upon arriving at the desk, Soo-hyuk started reading.
At a blink of an eye a year had passed.
And a very big change has happened to me.
The right pain.
I want to feel that pain.
No, can it be called pain?
It was pleasure for me.
I don’t feel any pain even if I’m struck.
Ogre’s fists are tickling me now. What should I do?
I tried poison.
At first, I thought I was dying.
That would be nice though.
I was able to feel tremendous pain, but it seemed that my body had adapted to the poison.
Poison is no longer effective.
What should I do?
I found it.
The extreme cold!
I almost died of freezing. I felt happy after a long time.
Ah, this is it.
I’ve gotten used to it again.
Hillard’s breath longer effected by the cold.
Soo-hyuk paused reading.
‘This is crazy.’
Because the content was shocking. Soo-hyuk confirmed the title of the book.
‘Rei the Immortal…’
The title of the book was <Rei, the Immortal>.
‘The title is very fitting for the content.’
It was a title that fit well with the content.
‘Is there a related quest or job?’
Would there be any related jobs like descendants of the Grand Mage?
‘Isn’t this endurance ridiculous?’
Soo-hyuk started reading again.
‘What, is this the end?’
Soo-hyuk, soon reaching the end of the book, tilted his head.
He didn’t think it was over with just that.
‘Does it have 2 volumes?’
Maybe there are two volumes? Soo-hyuk checked the rest of the books he brought.
‘It’s not here.’
However, the 2nd book wasn’t in the books he had brought.
If so, was it an open ending?
‘No, I think I just reached the middle of the story. Ending it there….’
However, it was hard to say that it was an open ending.
It was because the story was cut in the middle.
‘There may be 2 books or it may be under a different name.’
It couldn’t end like this.
Somewhere, there should be a book titled “Rei the Immortal 2” or a different name.
Soo-hyuk set aside “Rei the Immortal” and opened the next book.
Yeon-jeung couldn’t say anything. He just blankly stared at the whispers.
-Agild: Lilith has the Dokgo guild mark. What happened?
-Maidongpung: Didn’t Lilith just leave the ‘Reader’guild? To wear the Dokgo guild mark… … .
-Rekado: Why was Lilith wearing the Dokgo guild mark?
Whispers came from numerous acquaintances.
It was all about Lilith.
When he first received a call, he thought someone called mistakenly.
‘She entered the Dokgo Guild… …’
However, he found out that he was not mistaken after the continuing calls.
‘It has become harder to order the kill her.’
At yesterday’s meeting, it was decided to place an execution order on Lilith.
However, as Lilith entered the Dokgo guild, the situation became more difficult.
How to kill Lilith who entered the Dokgo guild?
No matter the reason, they can’t just openly attack the Dokgo guild.
Of course, the Dokgo guild was also wrong.
However, the Dokgo guild wouldn’t just stay still, just because they were in the wrong.
Obviously, there was a war between the ‘Reader’ guild and the Dokgo guild.
A war wasn’t scary. However, just because it wasn’t scary didn’t mean it was nothing.
‘I have to address this later at the meeting.’
After it was known that Lilith had entered the Dokgo guild, there were meetings both yesterday and today. During a meeting, they would decide what to do.
It was then.
A whisper came from Soo-hyuk.
-Yeon-jeung: Hey, I was just about to send a whisper.
Even if Yeon-jeung didn’t try to send a whisper to Soo-hyuk just now, he answered with a smile.
[Wisdom rises by 1.]
When he closed the book, a message appeared. Soo-hyuk saw the message and then checked the time.
‘I should log out.’
Soo-hyuk, who checked the time, got up from the seat.
And after returning the books, he left the library.
Soo-hyuk, who came out of the library, started to go to the auction house.
He opened a friend’s window to check Yeon-jeung’s connection status.
Soo-hyuk confirmed that Yeon-jeung was online and sent a whisper to Yeon-jeung.
-Yeon-jeung: Hey, I was going to send a whisper.
Soon after, the answer came from Yeon-jeung.
-Soo-hyuk: Really? Why?
-Yeon-jeung: I have something to tell you.
-Soo-hyuk: What is it?
-Yeon-jeung: Lilith entered the DOkgo guild.
At Yeon-jeung’s whisper, Soo-hyuk momentarily stopped.
Soo-hyuk started walking again and whispered to Yeon-jeung.
-Soo-hyuk: Really? Not only a few days ago, but after a day?
-Yeon-jeung: Uh. So, I called for another meeting. I think I’ll fight the Dokgo guild.
-Yeon-jeung: I’m sorry. As soon as you joined the guild, I got you caught up in this kind of thing.
-Soo-hyuk: Why are you sorry. Tell me when we go to war. I will do my best to bully them.
-Yeon-jeung: Thank you. But why did you send me a whisper?
The first to whisper was Soo-hyuk.
He wondered why Soo-hyuk sent a whisper.
-Soo-hyuk: Oh, I’m on the way to the auction house right now.
Soo-hyuk responded to Yeon-jeung’s question.
-Yeon-jeung: Auction house? Already? Will you put it up it by reservation?
-Soo-hyuk: Yes, it seems to be crowded on Wednesday.
Interest in Yarion’s Wrath was hot.
As they wanted to be part of the auction, many users would flock to the auction house on Wednesday, the day of auction.
Soo-hyuk, who hated crowded situations, planned to use the reservation system to put Yarion’s Wrath on the auction house in advance.
-Yeon-jeung: At what time are you going to start?
-Soo-hyuk: Around 8:00 PM considering people leave for work?
-Yeon-jeung: Wednesday 8pm. 48 hours?
-Soo-hyuk: No, 72 hours. So a weekend day is also included.
-Yeon-jeung: Okay, I have to post that later.
Only the auction date was announced, but not the exact time. Yeon-jeung decided to publish one more post later.
-Soo-hyuk: Thank you.
-Yeon-jeung: I am thankful!
-Yeon-jeung: Oh, and be careful.
At Yeon-jeung’s words, Soo-hyuk was puzzled. What to be careful about?
