Proofreaders: Makarovfey and Spirin
‘Kelloy and Soo Hyuk are the mansion.
Why did Kelloy wait for Soo Hyuk?
And why is he going to the mansion?
‘Is he trying to have a relationship between them?’
It was obvious that Soo Hyuk came to Beyond to meet the Marquis but the Marquis did not want to meet him.
‘He chose the Reader Guild over us?’
A question came to his mind.
Discard the Dokgo Guild and choose the Reader Guild?
Why all of a sudden?
‘Is there any chance for the Poison Tower to be involved?’
Soo Hyuk went over to the mansion with Kelloy.
‘It seemed as if the Poison Tower was involved.’
Why is Kelloy doing this all of a sudden?’
Why is Kelloy suddenly joining Soo Hyuk?
‘Because he belongs to his tower?’
Kelloy was the head of the Poison Tower Fade Kingdom branch.
And Soo Hyuk was also from the Poison Tower.
Were they together because both of them are from Poison Tower?
‘No, he knew that beforehand in the first place.’
Kelloy knew that Soo Hyuk belonged to the Poison Tower.
He knew so he took a bribe to get the information about him.
It’s certainly not just because both of them belong to the Poison Tower.
‘There is something… …
It was clear that he had found something new.
‘What should I do?’
Sunbyul contemplated while tapping the desk with his fingers.
‘I have to talk with him once.’
The most important thing right now was to have a conversation with the Marquis.
He needs to know what happened.
‘He won’t meet me… …
The problem was that the Marquis of Beyond did not want to meet.
‘Should I put pressure on him?’
The Dokgo Guild does not only have a relationship with Marquis of Beyond but with other nobles as well.
Among them there were nobles who could put pressure on the Marquis.
Won’t he talk if he puts pressure on the Marquis through those nobles?
‘Yes, I need to put pressure on him.’
After his worries, Sunbyul opened his friend’s window. And he whispered to Murong, the head of the Murong faction, one of the five factions leading the Dokgo Guild.
-Sunbyul: Murong, do this one thing.
‘Huh? Dokgo Guild?’
When Soo Hyuk arrived at the mansion, he frowned.
It was because there was a Dokgo Guild member a little far from the entrance of the mansion. It was then.
Kelloy ran to him from the entrance of the mansion.
Soo Hyuk looked over to Kelloy and then towards the Dokgo Guild member.
‘Should I kill her?’
Before the conversation with Marquis is over, he had no intention to kill Dokgo Guild members.
However, she is keeping watch on the mansion and cannot be left alone.
She may interfere.
It’s better to kill her neatly before she can interfere.
[You killed the Dokgo Guild member ‘Ellie’.]
Soo Hyuk cast Flame and a message appeared within 2 seconds.
After seeing the message, Soo Hyuk turned and thought while looking at the body of Ellie, the protagonist.
Did they know I was coming over?
Ellie, a member of the Dokgo Guild, was here.
What was the reason?
‘Is it a trap?’
‘If it’s really a trap… …’
“… … Soo Hyuk-nim?”
Soo Hyuk who started thinking in confusion, heard Kelloy’s embarrassed voice and looked over.
Kelloy was looking over at Ellie’s body whom he had just killed.
“She was a member of the Dokgo Guild.”
Soo Hyuk told Kelloy.
“Yes? She was a member of the Dokgo Guild?”
Kelloy asked back with a surprised expression at Soo Hyuk’s answer.
“Yes, I don’t know why she was monitoring the mansion… …
“Huh, they have gone as far as monitoring the mansion….”
Kelloy silently muttered.
As Soo Hyuk responded, Kelloy took over the lead and Soo Hyuk followed his footsteps.
The soldiers opened the door as soon as Kelloy and Soo Hyuk arrived at the entrance.
Passing through the entrance, he arrived inside the mansion and found an old man.
Kelloy bowed his head to the old man and then stepped over to the side. As soon as Kelloy got out of the way, the old man slightly bowed his head to greet him.
“Hello. I am Harik, the chief butler.”
The old man’s identity was Harik, the chief butler of Marquis of Beyond.
“Hello. I am Soo Hyuk.”
Soo Hyuk also slightly bowed and greeted him.
After saying hello, Harik started walking.
Soo Hyuk followed Harik’s footsteps and was soon able to reach the dining area.
When Soo Hyuk arrived, he sampled numerous food dishes and admired them.
‘Is this the Marquis’ meal?’
Noble, it was a meal of Marquis, a superior noble.
He was looking forward to it but it turned out to be more numerous and luxurious than he thought.
“This is your seat.”
Said Harik standing in front of a chair.
Soo Hyuk approached the chair pointed out by Harik and sat down.
“The Marquis will be here soon.”
Harik told Soo Hyuk while he sat down.
Soo Hyuk responded and Kelloy took over the seat next to Soo Hyuk.
It was then.
The door opened and a middle-aged man appeared.
‘Marquis of Beyond?’
He thought that he must be Marquis of Beyond seeing his luxurious clothes and strict appearance.
“Hello, I am the Marquis of Beyond.”
Just as Soo Hyuk thought, the identity of the middle aged man was the Marquis of Beyond.
The Marquis approached Soo Hyuk and greeted him.
“Hello, I am Soo Hyuk.”
In response to the Marquis of Beyond’s greeting, Soo Hyuk also stood up and greeted him and shook hands.
After shaking hands and saying hello, the Marquis of Beyond went to the other side of Kelloy and Soo Hyuk and sat down.
“It is an honor to meet the next Lord of Poison Tower.”
The meal started and the Marquis started a conversation.
Soo Huk, who had no idea about being the next Lord replied back with an awkward expression.
After that, while talking about things like that, Beyond went to the main point.
“I’m really sorry about the wanted order.”
“No. It doesn’t matter since the order was never issued.”
It wasn’t even issued.
And honestly, even if it was issued, Soo Hyuk wouldn’t hold any feelings towards the Marquis.
He would have felt angry at the Dokgo Guild instead who led to the situation
“I have a question, can I ask?” asked the Marquis.
“I would like to ask you what kind of relationship you have with the Reader Guild.”
Soo Hyuk thought about the Marquis’ question.
‘Why does he ask?’
‘Is he asking with good intentions?”
“The guild master is my best friend.”
The Maquis nodded his head with a smile on his face to his answer.
“I don’t know if you have heard of this but I have made a decision.”
The Marquis said with a smile and face full of seriousness.
[You have completed the quest ‘Meal with Marquis of Beyond’]
‘I was thinking, when would it be completed.’
Soo Hyuk though while looking at the message.
Now it’s time for the intimate talk.
The reward for the quest ‘Meal with Marquis of Beyond’ was the quest ‘Close Story’. Now that the quest is complete.
It was the next quest’s turn.
“I would like to tell you about it.”
To the Marquis words, Soo Hyuk smiled.
“I am listening.”
“This time, I am trying to cut off my relationship with the Dokgo Guild.”
As expected the guild story came out.
‘He is really trying to clean up.’
He is Soo Hyuk who has a bad relationship with the Dokgo Guild.
Everyone in Beyond knows that.
“However, the Dokgo Guild is the representative guild of Beyond and as you know the representative guild position cannot be left empty.”
Not all the cities have the representative guilds.
But what if big cities like Beyond have no representative guild.
The absence of a representative guild in itself has a negative impact on all the aspects of the city including the image and security.
The influence of the representative guild in large cities is very large.
They are indispensable.
Soo Hyuk thought while listening to Marquis’s words.
‘Reader Guild as the representative guild.’
He is trying to clear up his relationship with the Dokgo Guild.
He brought up the story of the representative guild as well as the Reader Guild.
Isn’t he trying to give the representative guild position to the Reader Guild?
“So I am going to give the representative guild position over to the Reader Guild.”
Soo Hyuk’s thoughts were correct once again.
“What does Soo Hyuk think about it?”
[Quest ‘Close Story’ was created.]
When he finished speaking, a message appeared.
It was the quest creation message.
“I think… …”
Soo Hyuk blurred his words and opened the quest window.
The Marquis of Beyond is trying to cut off ties with the Dokgo Guild.
However, the Dokgo Guild is the representative guild of Beyond.
The representative guild position cannot be left empty.
So he decided to establish the Reader Guild as the new representative guild.
Since you are related, what do you think?
Quest Reward: ???
Soo Hyuk though after seeing the information.
‘Does it depend upon my next words?’
The Marquis was asking for his thoughts on the matter.
Currently the base of the Reader Guild was Illan.
However Ilan was not a big city.
It’s a city with no representative guild.
When it comes to Ilan, it should be the Reader Guild but since it has not been officially recognized, Yeon Jeung always wanted a representative guild position.
It was because if you officially become the representative guild, you will be recognized by NPCs and you can receive numerous benefits.
‘I can’t decide about it.’
It wasn’t something which Soo Hyuk can decide all alone.
In addition, the representative guild position of Beyond belongs to the Dokgo Guild.
It wasn’t empty.
“I think that the Reader Guild deserves to be the representative guild.”
He nodded at Suhyuk’s answer.
[You have completed the quest ‘A Close Story’.]
“I would like to have a meal with the Reader Guild once in the future. Can you arrange it?”
He asked after stop nodding.
And a new quest appeared.
〈Beyond Representative Guild〉
The Marquis of Beyond is trying to give the position of representative guild of the city ‘Beyond’ to the Reader Guild.
However, the representative position cannot be given unilaterally.
He wants to talk to the Guild Master of the Reader Guild.
He wants you to decide the time and place.
Go to Beyond with the Reader Guild Master.
Quest Reward: City Beyond’s Representative position.
