Reader - Chapter 174: The Crazy Guy, Doha
“What is it?”
Soo Hyuk tilted his head
‘What is it that he is sorry for?’
“Something happened at the guild.”
“Yes, the Marquis asked me to come with some documents in a hurry. I think I will have to go back to deal with the urgent documents.
Yeon Jeung finished speaking and looked at Soo Hyuk.
“Ah, you don’t have to be sorry. Something happened at the guild.”
Soo Hyuk replied with a deep smile to Yeon Jeung.
It was natural for the Guild Master to go back if something has happened at the guild.
“Do you think it will take a long time?”
Yeon Jeung thought for a moment to Soo Hyuk’s question and then opened his mouth to answer.
“I think it will take two hours.”
“Then I will be hunting here till then.”
“If you are sorry then quickly go back.”
“Okay. I will listen to you and come back as soon as it’s done.”
At his words, Yeon Jeung disappeared with a warp scroll.
As he disappeared, Soo Hyuk started to walk forward once again.
‘How much is it going to rise?’
He had defeated 3 Wind Orcs and it rose by 1.
How many levels can he get until Yeon Jeung returns?
‘Are they NPCs?’
Soon he was able to find more Wind Orcs but they were not alone.
There were people wearing armors and fighting the Wind Orcs. There were no marks above their heads.
He presumed them to be the NPCs because of the armor they were wearing and the absence of guild marks.
‘Can I just pass by?’
Soo Hyuk was worried.
If it were users, he would have just passed by since he can’t interfere in their hunt but it was a different case for the NPCs.
If he just goes away without helping then he might get in a dispute.
‘I think they will die if I go away.’
Moreover, they were being pushed by the Orcs. As time passes, the Wind Orcs will eventually win.
It was then.
One of the guys dealing with the Wind Orcs, found Soo Hyuk and shouted.
< Aldio’s Request for Help>
Knight Aledo wants your help right this money.
Help Aledo and his soldiers defeat the Wind Orcs!
Wind Orcs Defeated: 0
Quest Reward: ???
Then a quest appeared.
-Chiwik! One more human has come.
-I will take advantage of this situation.
An Orc began to approach Soo Hyuk.
Soo Hyuk, who was wondering what to do, looked at the approaching orc, stopped worrying and opened his mouth.
[You have accepted the quest <Aledo’s Request for Help>.]
There was no need to answer after this. As soon as he attacked the Wind Orcs, the quest was accepted.
Soon the Magic missile exploded and the Wind Orc stopped moving.
[Obtained Wind Orc’s Blood]
Then a drop message appeared.
‘It was a one shot with the Magic Missile.’
Currently, the weakest magic Soo Hyuk had was Magic Missile.
Soo Hyuk casts fire ball towards the second Wind Orc.
[Obtained Wind Orc’s Blood x2]
The fireball exploded and a drop message appeared.
“Poison Ball. Fire Spear, Poison Spear.”
Afterwards, Soo Hyuk began killing the Wind Orcs by firing magic one after another.
[You have completed the quest <Aledo’s Request for Help>]
[Intimacy with Aledo has increased.]
It took less than ten seconds to kill the eight orcs.
Was it because the Wind Orcs whom they were fighting died quickly?
Aledo and his soldiers blankly stared at Soo Hyuk in silence.
It was Aledo who broke the silence.
“I am Aledo of the Armon Knights of the Fade Kingdom.”
Aledo approached Soo Hyuk and bowed his head to greet him.
“I am Soo Hyuk.”
“Soo Hyuk. Thank you very much. If it weren’t for you then we would have died.”
If it wasn’t for Soo Hyuk’s help then all of them would have been killed.
Aledo took out a small coin out of his chest and handed it over to Soo Hyuk.
It seemed to symbolize something as it had a strange pattern on it.
“If you ever visit the Capital then please come and find me. I really want to repay you!”
“I will come and see you if I stop there later on.
At Aldeo’s words, he replied back.
“Then I will be going.”
Soo Hyuk slightly bowed his head to greet him then started moving while opening the character window.
Strength: 40 (+10)
Agility: 29 (+10)
Vitality: 1108 [554 (+10)]
Wisdom: 6554 (+210)
Bonus Stats: 10
‘It’s going straight up’
It has been less than thirty minutes, however his level already rose by 3.
After distributing the bonus stats, Soo Hyuk closed his character window.
‘When will the next door open?’
At this speed he can shoot to level 300 right away and then unlock one more attribute.
Soo Hyuk started looking for Wind Orcs while thinking about what attributes he should open.
“What Yeon Jeung?”
Doha jumped up and asked.
“Where is he?”
As Helly nodded, Doha asked once again.
“It was an hour ago and I don’t know where he is now.”
An hour had passed since the meeting with Yeon Jeung so Helly didn’t know where Yeon Jeung is right now.
“Ah, You should have told me this quickly. I have something to ask to Yeon Jeung.”
“To Yeon Jeung? What?”
“About Soo Hyuk. I wanted to fight with him once.”
At Doha’s words, Helly frowned. He sat down while looking into the eyes of Doha.
“Don’t think about it doing something cheap again.”
“Why? I really want to fight him once.”
“He alone swept the Dokgo Guild. Can you do that?”
“Ah, there weren’t any real masters.”
“So can you do it?”
Doha couldn’t answer Helly’s words. Even if the real masters were not there, it was not something which he could do.
However, he did not want to lose with words to Helly so after thinking about it for a moment, opened his mouth.
“Even if I can’t do that. I have confidence in defeating a Magician! Soo Hyuk is a magician. If he is a magician then I can defeat him.”
Helly deeply sighed at Doha’s answer.
‘If they met, he would 100% fight.’
“But when are we leaving?”
Helly shook his head and rose from his seat.
Then he and Doha came out of the exploration base and began walking.
“How long are you going to defeat Wind Orcs at Rail Plains?”
Doha asked while walking.
“Until I have gathered enough contributions.
For better items and experience, it was better to go to the Moist Wetlands to the east or Kayu Grasslands to the North than the Rail Plains.
Nevertheless, the reason he didn’t leave the Rail Plains was because of the contribution.
“Is it possible to become real noblemen?”
“Yes. If you collect about 50,000 or more then you can receive noble title quests.”
He had completed exploration quests countless times so far and had raised his contribution points towards the Fade Kingdom.
And now it was time for the sweet reward.
“If it’s 50,000 then we need to do it 10 more times….”
Doha muttered with an expression full of boredom.
It was then.
Doha tilted his at the sight in front of him.
“What? Where are they running to?”
At least ten or more Wind Orcs were wishfully running. Where were they going?
Doha turned towards the direction where the Wind Orcs were running to. There was a man standing there. Wow!
Doha was surprised by the following situation.
It was because a storm of Fire appeared and swallowed all of the Wind Orcs. There were no Wind Orcs coming out of the Fire Storm.
They were all dead.
“Look at that!”
Doha urgently cried to Helly.
Helly did not respond to Doha’s cry.
He was already in a state of excitement seeing the light in his eyes.
“Can you hold them like that?”
But again Helly did not answer.
Doha tilted his head. It wasn’t because Helly isn’t answering.
Doha looked closely at the man who had created the Fire Storm with a slight frown.
“Isn’t that the mark of the Reader Guild?”
And he continued.
Helly stared blankly at Doha’s murmur and took a closer look like Doha
Helly was bound to be surprised. It was because he was the member of the guild with Yeon Jeung.
“I will be back in a minute.”
Doha ran out while telling Helly.
“……..Hey ! Hey!”
Helly urgently shouted at Doha’s sudden action but he didn’t stop even after the cry.
Helly muttered as he looked at Doha’s back getting further away.
Then he quickly followed Doha.
‘It ended earlier than I thought.’
Yeon Jeung thought with a smile.
He put the papers which he was holding in the inventory and left the guild house and headed towards the mansion of Marquis of Beyond.
‘How much did his level rise?’
While heading towards the mansion, he opened his friend’s window to check how much Soo Hyuk’s level had risen in the meantime.
Yeon Jeung opened his friend’s window and checked that Soo Hyuk’s level was now ‘256’
It has been a little over an hour since they broke up but 256?
When he left Soo Hyuk, his level was 205. He increased level by 51 in an hour.
‘It’s Madness, no matter the level difference but…..”
The level of the Wind ORcs was over 500 and there is a huge level difference between them and Soo Hyuk.
The experience provided by them is so great that it couldn’t compare to the normal monsters. However, it wasn’t enough to level up so quickly.
‘No. If at this ridiculous speed….’
Yeon Jeung remembered the appearance of Soo Hyuk defeating the Wind Orcs.
‘Perhaps he slaughtered the Wind Orcs at a tremendous pace.
‘It was very difficult for me to level up.’
Yeon Jeung remembered his days of Level 200s and made a bitter smile.
It was then.
-Soo Hyuk: Yeon Jeung!
A whisper came from Soo Hyuk.
-Soo Hyuk: The crazy guy that you told me about earlier was called Doha?
Yeon Jeung tried to send back a reply but he had no choice but to be surprised by Soo Hyuk. There was no way.
‘Doha? How did he know Doha?’
Yeon Jeung whispered back to Soo Hyuk with a frowned eyebrows.
-Yeon Jeung: Have you met him?
There was Helly at the first exploration base, Doha would have been there as well. And the reason he is asking about Doha is probably because he met him.
-Soo Hyuk: I met him.
It was as expected.
-Soo Hyuk: It was a single flame.
However continued his whisper and Yeon Jeung stopped walking after hearing it.
-Yeon Jeung: Did you really kill him?
