‘He didn’t get a wanted order issued on him?’
-Sunbyul: What are you talking about?
Sunbyul asked Salyeong.
Sunbyul’s expression was full of seriousness.
-Sunbyul: There should be no hurdles to the order.
-Sunbyul: Wasn’t it overlooked?
It is not one or two orders which were issued.
Could it have been overlooked?
-Salyeong: Only one wanted order came down today.
However, at the Salyeong’s following words that followed, Sunbyul had no choice but to tilt his head.
If there was only one then it’s not missing.
As Salyeong said, the order against Soo Hyuk was not issued.
“What the hell… …
He had a conversation with Marquis of Beyond last night.
Obviously, the conversation ended with a wanted order for Soo Hyuk to be arranged.
How the hell happened?
-Salyeong: Is it possible that they decided to lower the order for the arrangement today?
Asked the commander.
-Sunbyull: Uh, they were definitely going to give the order today.
Sunbyul rose from his chair, while sending a reply to Salyeong.
-Sunbyul: Did you go to the Marquis’ office?
Sunbyul got up from his seat, came out of the room and asked Salyeong.
-Salyeong: No, I didn’t go to his office. Should we go?
-Sunbyul: Yes, we have to find out what happened.
Sunbyul needs to ask the Marquis of Beyond to find out why the order was not given.
He was thinking of meeting him.
-Salyeong: Then shall I go to the mansion?
-Sunbyul: No, you go and only look for the Knight Commander, Frill.
Sunbyul ended his whisper with Salyeong at the guild house.
Then he went straight to the mansion of the Marquis of Beyond.
Upon arriving at the mansion, the soldiers guarding the entrance recognized him and bowed their heads to greet him.
“Good morning. I came to see the Marquis.”
Sunbyul said while receiving the soldier’s greetings.
“Let me ask… …”
The soldier answered Sunbyul’s words and entered the mansion.
And after a while the soldier returned.
Sunbyul looked at the soldier’s expression and felt something strange.
‘Why is he embarrassed?’
It was because the soldier’s expression was full of embarrassment.
Soon….said the soldier. The moment he heard the soldier’s words, Sunbyul could feel the ominousness of the situation.
“The Marquis has gone on vacation.”
Ominousness soon became a reality.
Sunbyul frowned at the soldier’s words.
“.. He is on a vacation?”
Vacation? What kind of vacation is it all of a sudden?
“Yes, they said he is gone on vacation.”
The soldier still responded to Sunbyul’s question with a confused expression.
Sunbyul turned his gaze away from the soldier and thought, looking at the mansion.
‘What are you doing?’
Contrary to the soldier’s words, the Marquis of Beyond would not have gone on vacation.
He is definitely in the mansion.
It was obvious that the vacation was an excuse not to meet him.
Why does he not want to meet?
Sunbyul turned back.
Sunbyul turned around and headed for the guild house.
And Sunbyul returned to the Guild House and was able to find Salyeong.
Frill was the Knight Commander who Salyeong visited.
He hasn’t met Frill as well then
“Something is weird.”
Said Salyeong who approached Sunbyul.
“Frill didn’t want to meet me.”
Sunbyul thought to his words.
It was clear something had happened after last night.
Otherwise, there was no reason for Marquis of Beyond nor Frill to refuse to meet them.
What has happened since he had the conversation last night?
[Wisdom rises by 1.]
When the book was covered, a message appeared, and Soo Hyuk, who saw the message, checked the time.
‘I have to read one more book.’
The 5 o’clock promise with Kelloy was approaching.
Soo Hyuk got up and returned the books he had read, and returned to his seat with a new book that was shining white.
Soon after, Soo Hyuk was able to reach the last chapter and he covered the book.
[Wisdom rises by 1.]
A message appeared, and Soo Hyuk stood up, returned the book, and came out of the library.
‘What time was the dinner supposed to be?’
He decided to go to the branch by 5 o’clock.
So dinner would be after 5 o’clock.
To be honest, Soo Hyuk hoped for the dinner to be postponed for tomorrow.
It was because there were few books left in the library.
“Where do you want to go?”
Soon after arriving at the warp gate, Soo Hyuk opened the inventory and answered.
“Fade Kingdom, Kennis.”
“It will be 40 gold.”
“Here you go.”
Soo Hyuk took out 40 gold, handed it to the wizard, and warped to Kennis.
When Soo Hyuk arrived at Kennis, he headed straight to the branch, and when he arrived at the branch, he could see Kelloy, who greeted him in advance.
Kelloy approached Soo Hyuk.
As usual, he politely bowed back to greet him.
Soo Hyuk also said hello to Kelloy and asked.
“What happened to dinner?”
“You said you will be coming at 5, so he set it for 6 o’clock.”
Soo Hyuk frowned at dinner time.
‘1 hour… …
It was because he had to wait an hour.
‘It’s enough time to read 5 thin books.’
As Soo Hyuk frowned, Kelloy looked at Soo Hyuk with confused eyes.
Soo Hyuk asked Kelloy’s embarrassing glance, releasing his frown.
“Will I be going alone?”
He was curious. Is he going to dinner with Marquis of Beyond alone or with Kelloy?
“I was going to serve you, but if you want… …
Kelloy replied, watching Soo Hyuk’s eyes.
“I will go to the mansion of the Marquis of Beyond until the appointment time. I will be in front of the mansion.”
Upon hearing Kelloy’s answer, Soo Hyuk came out of the branch.
‘It’s not a minute or two, and I would waste an hour.’
It’s an hour.
He cannot spend an hour of time at the branch.
Soo Hyuk wondered how he would spend an hour.
There were two options.
Killing Dokgo Guild members, or reading books in the library.
‘The information of the Dokgo Guild is still vague. I don’t know what the Marquis of Beyond will say.’
In such a situation, he did not want to add a new variable to the situation by killing the Dokgo Guild members for nothing.
It is not too late to kill Dokgo Guild members even after the story with the Marquis of Beyond is over.
[Warp to the subspace of the Archmage.]
Eventually, Soo Hyuk decided to read the book and moved to the subspace.
And when Soo Hyuk arrived in the subspace, he used the warp magic circle to warp back.
Soo Hyuk returned to Edil and headed to the library. When he arrived at the library, Soo Hyuk immediately brought the book and started reading.
[Wisdom rises by 1.]
[Wisdom rises by 1.]
[Wisdom rises by 1.]
‘Let’s go now.’
Soo Hyuk, who was reading a book, stood up at 6 o’clock.
Soo Hyuk’s expression was full of satisfaction because he spent an hour well.
With a satisfied expression, Soo Hyuk left the library.
‘What to do if I meet Dokgo Guild members.’
Suhyuk thought as he headed for the warp gate.
Now Soo Hyuk had to go to Beyond, where the mansion of the Marquis of Beyond is located.
However, the Dokgo Guild’s guild house was also located in Beyond.
The location of the mansion was in a completely different direction from the guild house, but there was a possibility to face the Dokgo Guild members.
Moreover, it was evening.
Some of those who died by Soo Hyuk can join back after the death penalty ends.
In other words, unlike in the morning, there will be many Dokgo Guild members in Beyond.
‘I should have gone with Kelloy. … :
Soon after arriving at the warp gate, Soo Hyuk thought about how it would have been like to go with Kelloy and not alone.
“The Beyond at Fade Kingdom.”
Dokgo Guild member Ellie was full of annoyances
With her expression she thought, pointing out the mansion of the Marquis of Beyond.
‘How long do I have to stand like this?’
Ellie checked the time to see how much she had until the shift.
‘I still have an hour left… …
Ellie, who checked her time, frowned on her.
She has 1 hour left until the shift.
She will have to keep an eye on Beyond’s Marquis Mansion for the next hour.
‘Whew, what’s he saying to watch out for?’
She didn’t understand why the hell she was to keep watch.
He just told her to keep an eye on it. He did not give a reason.
So she was even more annoyed.
It was then.
‘Who is it?’
Someone appeared in front of the mansion.
‘That robe… …
It was a man wearing a robe.
‘Isn’t it poison tower’s robes?’
When she looked closely, the robe belonged to the Poison Tower.
The soldiers greeted the man. It seemed that he wasn’t an ordinary wizard because he was greeted looking at his face.
‘I have to report this.”
I don’t know who this man is, but she decided to report, and Ellie whispered to Sunbyul.
Soon after, she received an answer from Sunbyul, and Ellie kept an eye on the man while whispering.
-Ellie: A wizard appeared in front of the mansion. He is wearing a Poison Tower robe.
-Sunbyul: He is wearing a Poison Tower robe? Does he look old?
At his words, Ellie confirmed his appearance.
-Ellie: He doesn’t look young.
It’s not close so it might not be accurate but he doesn’t look young.
-Sunbyul: I see. Are there any other special features?
-Ellie: He didn’t go into the mansion and instead is staying still at the entrance. Looks like he is waiting for someone.
-Sunbyul: Ho, is that right?
It was then.
As she was whispering to Sunbyul, the man in front of the mansion began running to somewhere.
Ellie followed the man and turned her gaze
She was soon surprised.
Because she just saw a familiar person in sight.
The bear mask and the Reader Guild mark floating above the head.
‘It’s Soo Hyuk!’
It was Soo Hyuk.
Ellie whispered to Sunbyul.
-Ellie: Soo Hyuk has appeared!
Sunbyul looked at Ellie’s whisper.
‘Soo Hyuk appeared?’
Ellie was talking about Kelloy the branch manager of Fade Kingdom Poison Tower.
But why did Soo Hyuk suddenly pop out
Did he come?
‘To the mansion?’
It was embarrassing that Soo Hyuk appeared, but it was even more embarrassing that the place where Soo Hyuk appeared was the mansion of the Marquis of Beyond.
‘Isn’t Kelloy waiting for Soo Hyuk?’
According to Ellie, Kelloy was waiting for someone.
And Soo Hyuk appeared.
That meant that the person Kelloy was waiting for was Soo Hyuk.
-Sunbyul: Is Soo Hyuk the guy who he was waiting for?
Sunbyul asked Ellie.
He thought that since Ellie was watching the situation, she would know.
[The whisper failed to reach the user.]
But as soon as he sent a whisper, Sunbyul frowned at the message that appeared.
Then he opened his friend’s window and checked Ellie’s connection.
She replied until a while ago, Ellie, who had been online, had become disconnected.
She must have been killed by Soo Hyuk.
