Reader - Chapter 168: Raid
“Yes. I am going to have a briefing of the operation at 12:30.”
“There is 4 minutes left?”
“Yes. Lets go down later. I have decided to do it in the hall.”
Soo Hyuk thought while replying to Yeon Jeung.
‘I was going to eat something but now I cant.’
“Ah, Soo Hyuk,”
“I felt it during this war.”
“I think at your level, you will be able to break through Hayden right now. Do you have any plans to go there?”
He will have to deal with Level 500 monsters up to the Enchanted Forest and beyond it, in Hayden, Level 600 monsters.
So Yeon Jeung thought it was impossible to go Hayden. No, he thought it would be very difficult.
However during the war, he learned about the strength of Soo Hyuk and his mind changed.
With his power, Soo Hyuk can easily defeat Level 500 and 600 monsters.
He will be able to go straight to Hayden.
“You are Level 204 right now and you can get a lot of experience!”
What if he defeats monsters of level 500 to 600.
He can get tremendous experience. His levels will go up straight.
“You want to go as well?”
Soo Hyuk asked.
He felt like going with Yeon Jeung.
It was because he heard all about it from him.
Yeon Jeong answered his question by scratching his head.
He said a little bit but he does want to go.
He was very curious because of the map.
‘If I go to the Hayden as asked by Yeong Jeung, I will be able to get tremendous experience.’
He has to level up someday.
There are still libraries which are available but one day they will be all conquered.
In order to use more libraries, he would have to level up.
But he was reluctant to level up right now.
As his level increases, so does the number of books needed to be read to increase Wisdom by 1.
‘If I go then I will go after conquering all the libraries.’
“I don’t think I can do it right now.
After thinking about it, Soo Hyuk told Yeon Jeung.
“How about after 2 weeks? What do you think?”
It seems he will be able to conquer all the available libraries in 2 weeks.
No, there might be places where he could conquer it just by entering it.
It may take less than two weeks.
“Fine. I like it.”
Yeon Jeong laughed broadly.
“I will be waiting.”
“Okay. Its been 30 minutes now. Lets go down.”
Soo Hyuk stood up from his seat. It was time for the briefing.
“Now do you have any questions?”
Yeon Jeung asked after the briefing.
“What will the archers do? Go inside or guard the wizards outside?”
Reniana asked a question to Yeon Jeung.
“All the archers, except Onin, protect the wizards outside.”
“Do you have any other questions?”
Yeon Jeung asked once again.
The guild members looked at each other without saying a word.
He checked the time when Yeon Jeung made sure there were no other questions.
It was time to start.
Yeon Jeung stood after the briefing session, left the guild house and waited for the other guild members.
Starting with Soo Hyuk, other guild members started appearing one after the another.
When everyone was out, Yeon Jeung took the lead and headed towards the Dokgo Guild guild house.
“Hey, its the Reader Guild!”
“Wow, so many members?”
“Where are they all going?”
Soon after, the users discovered the Reader Guild and caught up with them.
“It’s the direction of Dokgo Guild guild house?”
“They are going to raid the Dokgo Guild guild house?”
“Are they trying to end this war?”
“The Reader Guild looks great”
The users just mumbled and did not approach them nor block their paths.
Soo Hyuk, Yeon Jeung and other Reader Guild members.
They all were able to reach their destination, the Dokgo Guild guild house, without any interference.
“Come on. Get Ready!”
Yeon Jeung held out his shield.
He took the lead and ran towards the guild house.
Several guild members followed him.
Soo Hyuk thought while looking at Yeon Jeung and other guild members.
He was a wizard and so cannot use his strength in the Dokgo Guild guild house.
He couldn’t use the magic inside the comfort zone. [TL Note: Comfort zone is like a rest area where magic spells are prohibited. Probably all the guild houses lol.]
However, close combatants like Yeon Jeung were an exception.
The only thing being prevented is magic spells.
Direct physical attacks like swinging a sword or stabbing with a spear will still do damage.
“Its nice that they only have one entrance.”
Soo Hyuk turned around to the voice.
The owner of the voice was Helling.
“I know right, We just need to stand here.”
After seeing Helling, Soo replied while looking at the entrance once again.
Like Soo Hyuk, he coudn’t use his strength inside the guild house.
The task given to them was to stop people from entering the guild house or kill those who try to escape from the inside.
It was quite convenient because there was only one entrance at the Dokgo Guild guild house.
It was then.
Two users wearing Dokgo Guild marks came out of the entrance.
Both of them stopped seeing Soo Hyuk and other Reader Guild guild members surrounding the entrance.
[You killed Dokgo Guild member ‘Hanger.’]
[You killed Dokgo Guild member ‘Haram’]
Soon a message popped up and Soo Hyuk started to look at the entrance once again.
He turned back to the sound calling him.
“There are users who want to take your interview. Over there…”
Soo Hyuk looked at the place the guild member was pointing to. There was no guild mark above the users gathered.
“Yes, there are users who want to ask questions related to the guild but most of them want to interview Soo Hyuk. What should I do?”
At his words, Soo Hyuk thought.
I don’t think they will go even if he refused them for the interview.
‘Lets finish it quickly.’
Soo Hyuk who thought it was a nuisance opened his mouth and replied.
“I will solve it. I am sorry.”
“No! There is nothing to be sorry about. Rather ! I respect you!”
Soo Hyuk approached the users gathered with the guild members.
“Oh, you are here.”
“Oh, I think he will do the interview today.”
Users muttered as he approached.
“Good morning. This is Soo Hyuk.”
He greeted the users.
“What is your relationship with Yeon Jeung?”
“Where did you get Yarion’s Wrath?”
As soon as he said hello, the users started asking question.
“I am friend of his. I got Yarion’s Wrath as a dungeon reward.”
“Do you have any plans to reveal the location of the dungeon?”
“Its difficult to tell it in words. If it will be released then Yeon Jeung will do it.”
Soo Hyuk quickly answered the questions.
“What is your level?”
However when a question about his level came up, he couldn’t answer easily.
Even if he said the truth, there was a high possibility that they wont believe it.
“Its a secret.”
“Fire, Poison and Healing. You deal with three attributes. In what order did you take the tests?”
“I got them in this order, Fire, Poison and Healing.”
Users continued question for a while and Soo Hyuk kept answering.
“I heard that you all got a guild house in Beyond, is it real?”
“Yes. You are right.”
Fortunately there were no other difficult questions.
“There are rumours that Beyond’s representative guild will change to Reader Guild.”
“Yes. That’s right. By now it should have been announced in the city hall.”
After checking the time, he replied with a smile and continued.
“Are you talking about right now?”
“Are you saying that the representative guild has changed?”
“Yes., I hope you can ask the guild related questions to Yeon Jeung.”
The guild related questions need to be answered by the Guild Master Yeon Jeung.
Quite a bit of time passed with the interview.
Yeon Jeung will soon come out.
And Soo Hyuk’s prediction became a reality.
“Soo Hyuk-nim, the Guild Master is here.”
Helling who was looking at the entrance, came up to him and said.
“He is finally out.”
Soo Hyuk spoke out to the users and looked over to the entrance.
Yeon Jeung and other guild members were coming out of the entrance.
Yeon Jeung looked at the users and Soo Hyuk and made a puzzled expression.
-Soo Hyuk: I was in the middle of interview. They are now asking guild related questions but you came just now. Answer them.
Soo Hyuk sent a whisper to relieve Yeon Jeung.
Yeon Jeung’s doubts were resolved by the whisper.
He smiled and came over to Soo Hyuk’s side.
“Hello. I am the Reader Guild’s Guild Master Yeon Jeung.”
Yeon Jeung greeted the users. Naturally, Soo Hyuk fell behind and approached the other guild members.
“Good Job everyone!”
Shouted Yeon Jeung.
“Thank you for your efforts!”
Returning to the guild house, Yeon Jeung made a cry. The guild members greeted each other.
After saying their goodbyes, everyone disappeared.
Soo Hyuk headed towards the Guild Master’s room with Yeon Jeung.
“You did a great job.”
Yeon Jeung said as soon as he entered the room.
“I was only keeping lookout at the entrance.”
Soo Hyuk answered by walking and sitting on the sofa. He then asked.
“Can I assume that the war is now almost over?”
“Yeah, we stole the representative guild position, killed the Guild Master and raided their guild house.”
Yeon Jeung nodded.
The Dokgo Guild was hit hard.
At Beyond, their base and members were trampled by Soo Hyuk and the representative guild position was taken away.
In addition, the Guild Master, Sunbyul died and eventually the guild house was raided.
The war was almost over.
“I am only telling this to you.”
There were only the two of them in the room, but still Yeon Jeung continued in a quite voice.
“I am not sure but I think the Dokgo Guild will post an apology sooner or later.”
Soo Hyuk was surprised by Yeon Jeung’s words.
“Did you know that the Dokgo Guild is made up of 5 factions?”
“Uh, I know.”
“Because there is a faction which does not have a good relation with Sunbyul and its the Kane faction, which did not participate in the war.”
“There were people who didn’t participate.”
Soo Hyuk was surprised.
“Oh, so that’s why it was too easy.”
He never thought there would be people who wouldn’t participate in the war.
“But what does this have to do with the apology?”
Soo Hyuk tilted his head.
“Kane made a call.”
“Oh, I didn’t receive it myself but the information was passed through my acquaintances, but I think there will be a major reorganization of the Dokgo Guild in the future. Sunbyul will step down from the Guild Master position in favor of Kane. And they will apologize after that. They will also move their base.”
“What then the actual war is already over?”
“Right. If they actually do that.”
Yeon Jeung laughed.
“You worked hard. Really.”
And said to Soo Hyuk.
“No, what did I do?”
“No! If it wasn’t for you then I couldn’t have even dreamed of this situation, This all thanks to you.”
If it wasn’t for Soo Hyuk, the Reader Guild would have been trampled at this point.
“Thank you for saying so.”
Soo Hyuk stood up while listening to his words.
“Where are you going?”
“The war is over so you are going to Hayden?”
“I am going to prepare for it.”
Yeon Jeung tilted his head as if he coudn’t understand his words, Soo Hyuk opened his mouth with a smirk.
