Reader - Chapter 160: Invitation to Dinner
Proofreaders: Makarovfey and Spirin
When Leon was thinking of how Soo Hyuk was being pampered by Kelloy, he felt insulted.
‘But who is it?’
Who the hell is Soo Hyuk?
‘He’s obviously a wizard from our tower.’
He was wearing a Poison Tower robe. Apparently, he was a wizard belonging to the Poison Tower.
‘His rank is going to be higher than the branch manager Kelloy, for him to act like that.’
He was a first-class wizard and was being politely talked by the branch manager.
‘Then, there are only the Tower Lord and the Vice-Tower Lord.’
However, Soo Hyuk is not the Tower Lord nor the Vice Lord.
If that would have been the case, Leon would not have not known.
So he didn’t understand the situation right now.
Regardless of who Soo Hyuk is, it does not change.
“If I buy something which is less delicious, will I get less money?”
[You have completed the quest ‘To the Fade Kingdom Branch.’]
Upon arriving in the room, a quest completion message appeared.
“What were you going to be talking about?”
Looking at the message, Soo Hyuk went to the main point
“Do you remember when the knights appeared when you went to the Dokgo Guild guild house yesterday?”
Kelloy answered Soo Hyuk’s question.
“Yes, I remember.”
“I don’t know if you’ve seen it, but I was there too.”
Soo Hyuk is surprised. And Kelloy continued.
“The reason I went there was that I went at the request of the master of the Dokgo Guild. They informed me that there is a wizard who is killing everyone.”
“Afterwards, Sunbyul came and requested from the Marquis of Beyond. It was a request to put a wanted order on Soo Hyuk.”
Soo Hyuk continued to listen to Kelloy’s words and thought.
‘It’s just as Yeon Jeung said.’
As told by him, Sunbyul tried to use NPCs to put a wanted order on him.
‘By the way, by saying this…
But saying this meant that the situation had changed.
And Soo Hyuk’s thoughts were exactly right
“Once Soo Hyuk-nim disappeared, he made a decision to issue the order. However, he couldn’t just drop the wanted order, so we investigated in detail. As a result, we learned that it was false information. So he canceled the arrangement. No matter how close he is to the Dokgo Guild, he said that he couldn’t issue an order towards the innocent Soo Hyuk’
Having finished his words, Kelloy sees Soo Hyuk’s expression and immediately said.
“The Marquis of Beyond is sorry for this and wanted to have dinner with you.”
The Marquis, who rules the city Beyond, feels sorry for you.
So, he wants to treat you to a meal.
Quest Reward: Quest-Close Story
The quest appeared.
After seeing the quest, Soo Hyuk spat out.
‘It’s not just the meal.. …
It was written as if a meal, but literally, it’s not just a meal.
The quest reward was the main part.
‘It’s fun to go around?’
The Marquis of Beyond was a noble NPC who ruled Beyond, the base of the Dokgo Guild, and was a very important figure to the Dokgo Guild.
Such Beyond Marquis wanted to meet him, Soo Hyuk..
“What would you do?”
Kelloy asked Soo Hyuk.
Soo Hyuk was watching the quest, Kelloy.
He answered his question.
“Please tell me a convenient time and I will come.”
“How about this evening?”
“Okay, I will be there.”
[You have accepted the quest ‘Marquis of Beyond’s Treat’.]
The quest was accepted in response to Kelloy’s answer.
“Then I will come to the branch at 5 o’clock.”
Looking at the message, Soo Hyuk stood up.
He heard all the information and also received his next quest.
There was no reason to stay here..
‘Because I have to come back at 5 o’clock. I should go quickly and read books.’
Soo Hyuk wanted to go to the library as soon as possible to read the books.
“It was nice to see you..”
Following him, Kelloy got up from his seat, and Soo Hyuk came out of the room while talking to Kelloy. Then he moved forward and left the branch, used the warp gate to warp to Edil of the Youth Kingdom.
‘This time it will be ambitious.’
Arriving at Edil, Soo Hyuk thought as he headed for the library.
‘Can I conquer it?’
Originally, he was planning to conquer the Edil Library today.
But he got an appointment for dinner. It’s dinner with the Marquis.
And he was going to be talking intimately.
It will take quite a long time.
It was then.
‘I have to tell Yeon Jeung
‘I don’t know what information will come out at the dinner time with the Marquis of Beyond, but it seems like there will be information which I will need to get for Yeon Jeung.’
Soo Hyuk opened the friend window.
-Soo Hyuk: Yeon Jeung
As expected, Yeon Jeung was online and Soo Hyuk whispered to him.
-Yeon Jeung: Uh.
Soon after, the reply came from Yeon Jeung.
-Soo Hyuk: Do you know about the Marquis of Beyond?
-Pigeon: Aren’t the Dokgo Guild guys weaker than we thought?
-Leanius: Yes. In the past, they felt really strong.
-Ellie: This war seems worth paying attention to!
-Aruta: That’s right. Plus seeing the home base, the Dokgo Guild was completely upset.
-Leanius: Oh, what did Soo Hyuk do?
-Aruta: Yes, they said that even Nonia died.
-Pigeon: Huh, really?
-Aruta: There were a lot of posts about it.
-Pigeon: Wow, Soo Hyuk, he must be very strong. He is robbing the Dokgo Guild all alone.
-Leanius: He is strong, but I think his PK ability is very high. I’m a wizard, but he fought them all alone.
Yeon Jeung while watching the chat room conversation, stood up from his seat.
‘Thanks to Soo Hyuk, the situation is strangely going well.’
It was a war that he started while thinking of being defeated.
The difference in power between the Dokgo Guild and the Reader Guild was quite large.
But thanks to Soo Hyuk, the situation was changing.
Soo Hyuk alone killed numerous Dokgo Guild members.
And he robbed the Dokgo Guild house and made many Dokgo Guild members gather into the guild house.
As a result, the numbers of guild members being faced by the Reader Guild has decreased.
The Reader Guild was pushed by the Dokgo Guild in quantity but not in quality.
If the current situation is maintained, the Dokgo Guild will lose.
‘It will be a problem after a wanted order is issued.
When the wanted order is issued, Soo Hyuk’s activities will be restricted.
As of now, he cannot attack Beyond and kill Dokgo Guild members.
If he got caught by the Knights, he would face the worst penalty, that is imprisonment.
Yeon Jeung arrived at his capsule and connected to Pangea.
After connection, he quickly checked his surroundings.
He killed Dokgo Guild members here before logging out at night.
Dokgo Guild members might be around.
Fortunately, there were no Dokgo Guild members nearby.
It was then.
-Soo Hyuk: Yeon Jeung.
A whisper came from Soo Hyuk.
-Yeon Jeung: Uh.
-Soo Hyuk: Do you know the Marquis of Beyond?
‘Marquis of Beyond?’
Yeon Jeung tilted his head on Soo Hyuk’s whisper.
‘The Marquis of Beyond behind the Dokgo Guild?’
Is the Marquis of Beyond that Soo Hyuk speaks of the Marquis of Beyond, an aristocrat who rules the city of Beyond where the Dokgo Guild is located and secretly looks after the Dokgo Guild?
-Yeon Jeung: Are you talking about the Marquis of Beyond that governs the city of Beyond?
-Soo Hyuk: Yes.
-Year round: Of course I know. Because he is the largest nobleman who supports the Dokgo Guild. Why?
Yeon Jeung asked Soo Hyuk.
Why is Soo Hyuk asking about the Marquis of Beyond?
-Soohyuk: He invited me to a meal?
Soon a reply came from Soo Hyuk, and Yeon Jeung had a doubtful expression.
It was because a completely unexpected word came out.
-Yeon Jeung: What are you talking about? Does he want to have a meal? Marquis of Beyond? with you? Why?
Yeon Jeung questioned Soo Hyuk one after the another.
-Soo Hyuk: He is sorry so he wants to invite me to a meal.
At Soo Hyuk’s answer, Yeon Jeung displayed even a more doubtful expression.
‘He is sorry, He is serving you a meal? Marquis of Beyond?’
He didn’t understand.
What the hell happened to him and why did he want to serve the meal?
-Yeon Jeung: I don’t understand, but please explain the situation in detail.
Asked Yeon Jeung.
Then, a detailed explanation came from Soo Hyuk.
Yeon Jeung heard the explanation but did not say anything.
The word jackpot filled his head.
‘Is Soo Hyuk rank very high?’
He didn’t hear everything from Soo Hyuk.
He only knew about a few things.
He was affiliated with the Poison Tower and that he had a relationship with Pavian, the Lord of Poison Tower.
However, listening to the current situation, the position of Soo Hyuk from the point of view of NPCs is much higher than he thought.
-Soo Hyuk: If there is any information about the guild, I will contact you.
A whisper came from Soo Hyuk.
-Yeon Jeung: Okay.
Yeon Jueng got up and quickly responded.
Yeon Jeung ended his whispering with Soo Hyuk while swallowing his saliva.
He thought that he would be defeated at the end of the war, but his thoughts had changed because of Soo Hyuk.
If we can’t win then they won’t either.
But now his opinion has changed once again.
It’s just a feeling but what if the Marquis of Beyond ends the relationship with the Dokgo Guild for Soo Hyuk?
‘I can win.’
“Did that brat come this morning?”
Sunbyul couldn’t control his anger and murmured while trembling.
“Is this a public guild house?”
It’s not even his own guild house, but Soo Hyuk keeps looking for the guild house as if it was his guild house.
“I can’t catch him… ”
He wanted to come out and catch him, but it was impossible.
What if he went out on his own and died?
There will be a great ripple that cannot be compared to the death of the Nonia or guild members.
“Yes, true. Soon, the wanted order will be issued.”
With this sudden thought, Sunbyul checked the time with a smile.
The current time is 12:58.
The city “Beyond” regularly receives notices at 1 pm every day.
And today, Soo Hyuk’s wanted order will be issued.
It will be over the moment the order is given.
If that happens, it will be difficult for Soo Hyuk to enter Beyond.
He would have to deal with Beyond’s knights and soldiers as well as numerous bounty hunter NPCs. How can he step into Beyond?
Two minutes later, it was 1 o’clock, and a whisper came from the Salyeong who went to the city hall to check the notices.
Sunbyul smiled and responded to Salyeong.
-Sunbyul: Yes, is it up?
-Commander: No. It did not appear.
The smile disappeared from Sunbyul’s face, who was laughing at Salyeong’s whisper.
