The Delivery Man from Moorim - Episode 19
Episode 19. Rainy day finds (3)
The wizard bit his lip.
‘I’m not good enough so I can’t keep the right ball anymore. I’m really sorry.’
As the light ball disappeared, the magic beasts in the darkness that were targeting them rushed at them.
The four hunters did their best, but they felt that death was approaching.
‘I can’t hold on any longer!’
‘I don’t want to die… … .’
It was then.
Along with the familiar cries of dungeon rats, demonic beasts began to fall.
“… … uh?”
The surprised wizard quickly gathered up the missing aura and cast a light ball.
The sight of the surrounding area becoming brighter was even more surprising.
This is because the heads of all the undead, such as zombies and ghouls, that filled the area around them were cut off and were not moving.
But the person who saved them was nowhere to be seen.
And after a while.
The gate vibrated.
“uh? Could this be the vibration?”
Jin Yong-pal nodded at the healer’s words.
“Yes, the gate has been captured.”
I couldn’t believe it, but it was true.
That vibration was one they felt several times while attacking the gate.
“Uh, what happened?”
“Until just now, we… … Because of the demonic beasts… … .”
The demon beasts that had threatened their lives were all in front of them now.
Looking at the witches’ wounds, they were killed with a single sword.
“Is it really Mr. Lee Shin who has come to help?”
Jin Yong-pal shook his head at that question.
“No, no matter how much he is, it is impossible to close the gate in just three minutes.”
“Then could he possibly be the Zero Level Awakening of the rumors?”
They couldn’t say anything.
Because I realized it was the truth.
said the wizard.
“I think I heard Kkolong’s voice earlier… … .”
It was then.
Da da da da dat-!
A dungeon rat ran towards them.
“Come on! “We have to get out now!”
“Before that, I need to get some magic stones.”
They roughly grabbed a few magic stones from nearby demon beasts and then headed toward the gate entrance.
This is because the gate closed after 12 hours once all demons within the gate were processed.
Meanwhile, Kang So smiled as he watched Jin Yong Pal and his group heading towards the exit.
‘That dungeon rat’s name was Kolong.’
* * *
When Jiang Su had just entered the gate, his senses felt that there were only four living humans.
Kangso ran to save them and encountered a demonic beast in human form attacking them.
The common reaction to seeing a zombie for the first time was to panic and not know what to do.
Because zombies have the same appearance as humans.
However, Kangso is a former assassin.
So I swung my hand without hesitation, but the zombie continued to move.
‘Most of the energy is concentrated in the head. if… … ‘Is the head a weak point?’
Kangso cut off the zombie’s head.
That was the correct answer.
Jiang So was thinking about using his hand to use the sword, but he picked up the sword that was lying near his feet.
This was because it was more efficient to use a weapon such as a sword than to use a sword directly from the hand and the problem could be resolved quickly.
The sword Kang So picked up was a pretty good sword.
‘It seems to be the sword of the awakened person who died here. I’ll borrow it for a moment. I will avenge your enemies, so please return to paradise.’
Jiang So’s eyes changed.
He cut off the heads of the demon beasts without hesitation.
Last time, I didn’t know much about gates, so I left a few slimes behind, which led to a big problem.
But I wasn’t going to make that mistake this time.
Kangso, who had completely captured all the magical beasts, headed to the boss room and saw the Dullahan there.
“Who are you? “Death to the intruder!”
Kangso thought as he watched Dullahan swinging a huge sword towards Kangso with a voice that sounded like scraping metal.
‘It’s a demonic beast with its head raised! It looks really unique, but could it be that that demon’s weak point is its head?’
Kangso threw a sword blast towards Dullahan.
The harsh sword wind tore not only the Dullahan’s head but also his body to pieces.
It was a very meaningless ending considering it caused the Blue Team to struggle.
Black blood splattered everywhere, but not a single drop got on Kang So’s body.
Then the gate vibrated.
During my previous training, I remembered learning that when a gate vibrates, it means that the gate is closed.
Kangso saw the Dullahan’s magic stone rolling beneath his feet.
It was a purple, transparent bead the size of a thumb.
‘Is this a magic stone? The source of the demonic energy felt here is this magic stone!’
Since Kang So was able to see the actual magic stone when he was receiving training as an isolated person, he knew that it was not common to feel demonic energy from the magic stone.
So, I took care of it and stored it well.
Now that I had granted my request to help the owner of the dungeon rat, which was my purpose for coming here, I had to go back.
Kangso took out the dungeon rat that was hanging between his shirt and placed it on the floor.
“That’s enough now, right?”
“Then go to your master.”
Dungeon Rat jumped up and expressed his gratitude and then ran towards the four surviving hunters.
Kang So put the sword he was using on the floor.
And his figure disappeared inside the gate.
* * *
“Have you been there?”
When Kang So entered Yangchun Gak, Yu Sun-tae, who was sitting at the table as if he had been waiting, greeted him.
“okay. “I’ve been there.”
“What about dungeon rats?”
“I went to find the owner.”
“Good. “Ha-young will be depressed for a while, but she has an owner so you shouldn’t bring her here carelessly.”
“I guess I got a call from the hostess.”
Yu Sun-tae was holding a cell phone.
“that’s right. “I just got a call and they seemed to be having fun.”
He must have been watching TV while waiting for Kang So to arrive, so the TV in the store on the first floor was turned on.
It was then.
– Breaking news! Today, a person believed to be a zero-level awakened person appeared at gate C-0145237 and disappeared after rescuing four members of the Blue Team of the Legend Guild from the brink of annihilation. As a result, our country is also certain to have zero-level awakened people… … .
The data screen of the news bulletin showed four hunters, including Jin Yong-pal, in disarray, and the dungeon rat Kolongi curled up in the hands of a man following them.
“That dungeon rat, his name is Corong. And the request for help was because the owner was in danger inside the gate.”
For a moment, Yu Sun-tae was shocked.
“Are you sure you entered the gate?”
“It was possible to get in?”
Kang So nodded, and Yu Sun-tae smiled.
“Anyway, I think the martial arts skills you showed before are truly amazing. “No matter how C-level he is, he closes the gate all by himself.”
“Well, that’s about it.”
“Go in and sleep. “It’s late at night.”
“Okay, sleep well too.”
Jiang Su entered the room, and Yu Sun-tae, who was sitting in the dining hall, sighed.
On TV, an expert was explaining the reasons why the person who appeared at the C-0145237 gate was assumed to be a zero-level awakened person.
Yoo Sun-tae did not think that Kang So was a zero-level awakened because he did not feel any of the same intimidation that he felt when he saw Lee Shin, an S-level awakened, before.
But I entered a gate that was closed to entry!
The identity became increasingly suspicious.
However, Yu Sun-tae soon shook off the doubt.
‘Me too! I’m worrying about everything. ‘Whether Kangso is zero level or not, the fact that we are friends doesn’t change.’
Yu Sun-tae decided to just take it easy.
* * *
A few days have passed since then.
Hayoung Yoo still had a gloomy expression.
“He’s gone. I couldn’t even say hello… … .”
“I said I returned it to the owner.”
Yoo Ha-young responded to Yu Sun-tae’s words.
“I know that. Anything that has an owner must be returned to the owner. But you couldn’t say hello. “So I’m sad.”
Kang So felt guilty at Yoo Ha-young’s reaction.
‘If I had known this would happen, I would have at least said hello to Hayoung and sent her back!’
But it had already passed.
‘By the way, among those four awakened people, who was the owner of Kkolongi?’
When I thought about that time, I remembered the magic gemstone I had picked up.
‘The magic energy felt in that magic stone was of a similar nature to the magic energy I felt in the place where I opened my eyes.’
In other words, the energy of the world he was in when crazy people used forbidden magic.
‘Are those spells and the gate possibly related?’
It seemed like I needed to go to the place where the gate was once more.
* * *
It was raining.
“Kkokkyu…” … Kkokkyun… … .”
C-0145237 The place where the gate disappeared was a garden with a well-decorated walking path, just like before.
Kkolong was clucking as he stared aimlessly at the place where the entrance to the gate had disappeared.
The Awakened Association employees who came to clean up the disappeared gate whispered.
“Why is that dungeon rat here?”
“You still didn’t know that? “Those dungeon rats are quite famous.”
“okay. That dungeon rat was raised by a hunter who died inside this gate, and you know it. “The loyalty of dungeon rats is incredible!”
“It was said that when the owner dies, the owner dies in sorrow. But the owner of that dungeon rat is a member of the Legend Guild, right? “Don’t they say anything?”
“I already have a lot of work to do, but would you care about the dungeon rats raised by a D-class hunter? “They said no one from the hunter’s family was there.”
“It’s a pity.”
After sitting there for several days without eating anything, Korong’s shiny fur became dull.
Although he was happy that he had saved his master, the only ones who survived were his four companions.
I ran to where I could smell the owner, but what I found there was a cold body.
He blamed himself for his master’s death because he had called for help too late.
“Kkokkyu…” … .”
Korong remembered the person who helped him.
It was thanks to that incredibly strong human that he was able to avenge his master and save his comrades.
He also wanted to serve such a person as his master.
Then, you too will become stronger and be able to help your master not die.
Somehow I couldn’t forget the strange feeling of security I felt when I was inside that human’s shirt.
I felt a sense of betrayal, but I still couldn’t forget it.
“tail… … Kkokkyun… … .”
My vision became blurry.
I think it was probably because I hadn’t eaten for a few days and got caught in the rain.
Korong closed his eyes in the hope that if he opened them again, he would be able to see his owner.
“… … !”
It was a familiar voice.
Korongi, who had closed his eyes, opened them in surprise and looked up.
A human with an umbrella was looking at him.
“His name was Kolong, right? At that time, I thought there was a master among those awakened people… … It wasn’t. “Is the owner dead?”
“Kkokkyu…” … .”
“If I do this, I feel even more sorry for Hayoung… … .”
Kang So came to the place where the C-0145237 gate was located to confirm Magi’s identity.
The gate there had completely disappeared, and the magic energy felt there had also completely disappeared.
‘Is the magic stone I have also the source of demonic energy?’
There was no risk because I stored it so well, but I still thought that I would have to get a personal warehouse to store it there soon.
‘I can’t have such an ominous thing in Yangchun Pavilion anymore.’
And as I was about to go back to Yangchungak, a dungeon rat that I had seen a lot somewhere caught my eye.
And I also heard the employees talking about the dungeon rat.
If I had known that the owner was dead, I wouldn’t have sent Korongi to them like that.
Kangso continued talking to Kolong.
“Are you planning on dying like this? You’re not doing this for the sake of your master, are you? “That’s a dog’s death.”
“I’ve seen a lot of people like that. Those who follow their lord to death, the lord would not have wanted that. “Your master probably did the same.”
Korong suddenly came to his senses after hearing Kangso’s words.
His master would not want him to do this. Ko Longi blamed himself for his own foolishness.
“Kkokkyu…” … .”
Kang So recalled Yoo Sun-tae saying that he thought Ha-yeong should get a pet for him.
“Do you want to go with me?”
“I will be your new master. Come with me.”
Kkolong blinked at that suggestion.
If I had to live, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to live with the person in front of me.
Kolong flinched and touched Kangso’s fingers.
On a rainy day, Kkolong has a new owner.
