“Show your true face. I can’t truly trust you even if you are a dreamwalker like me with your face fully covered.”
I wish he’d stop calling me dreamwalker.
“Did you make up the name dreamwalker?”
“So what? Does that matter now?”
Looking at the name Dreamwalker, I think it’s actually pretty good.
It definitely expressed our current situation.
The problem, however, is that referring to myself like that by others makes me cringe.
Shaking my head hard, I suggested we move to a quieter place.
“What if I don’t want to follow you?”
Looking at him slowly taking his hand into his sports bag, I said coldly.
“Please make a good choice. I just want to exchange information with you.”
“Then show your face.”
“I can’t do that.”
He’s a human being who won’t give me any help anyway.
I didn’t want to get involved with him any further.
‘Park Sung has exposed himself too much. Wouldn’t it be dangerous for me if someone was aiming for Park Sung’s power? I think it’s desirable to just exchange information with each other.’
But at the end, he pulled out a sword and I wonder how he had gotten it.
On the right side of the road where we are walking now, there were tall trees on Boramae Park along with bars, and apartments are located on the left.
“Isn’t that what you wanted? The information you’re looking for includes my combat capabilities.”
He already knows what my intentions are.
I looked at him silently.
“You know there are those others that want to use the information from others in order to eliminate rivals, fearing that their interests might be infringed.”
I don’t know if he is full of imagination or not
Will I be competing with a fool who got caught and tested while doing a live broadcast of his supernatural powers?
“You’ll regret it.”
“You’re acting like you are something.”
At my cold suggestion, he said, swinging the sword as if he were warming up.
I already know it, but Park Sung was not easy to talk to
“You know what? People like you who pretend to be big names are usually playing the extra in novels or movies.”
“You seem to be quite confident in your skills.”
“I don’t think my ability is great yet.”
Even if I am annoyed, I can’t help but assume that I will never lose to this kind of guy.
I looked around and made an escape route just in case.
“Why? Are you so scared now?”
Running away from his excited appearance, I jumped over the bars and entered deep inside the little forest.
And it wasn’t long before I got to a place where people couldn’t see me, so I stopped there.
Park Sung followed me as expected.
If I look at his speed when he chased me, he didn’t seem to have the Leap Skill.
This was good news for my safety, in case I needed to escape.
“Hit before you get hit. If I hit, the doubt whether they are true or not disappears. This is what I learned on the Mu Continent.”
He was not wrong, but I can only describe his idea of wielding weapons against people in Korea as insane.
Frankly, this was a situation that I hoped for.
I wanted to check the level of other people besides me.
[Item Slot No. 1]
The “Item slot” obtained from an intermediate compensation card the other day can be used immediately only for the belongings I have.
Of the 3 slots, the one registered at number 1 is the Spear inside the backpack.
When food is registered, it will be automatically ingested, and when my Spear is registered as assembled, it will be held intact even if it was initially disassembled.
As I summoned the spear in front of my eyes, it was already held in my hand. I waved the spear for a while and started taking the battle stance.
Park Sung’s appearance showed nervousness.
“Well, that’s plausible.”
However, Park Sung also waved the sword, forming a blue light over the sword, using Mana Emission.
I didn’t want to wield a weapon against humans, but I’m not nice enough to allow myself unarmed.
If a simple talk can’t be, there is no other choice but to resolve with violence
When Park Sung entered the intersection, I immediately used Leap to catch him up.
The collision between weapons that has Mana Emission produced a heavy sound, different from that of metals.
Park Sung, who blocked the first attack, rushed quickly and tried to narrow the distance between up, but I immediately stabbed the spear in and stepped back to maintain the distance.
This was a battle between a spear and a sword.
These weapons have been controversial weapons since ancient times, saying that one’s is better than the other.
Many say that the range of attack of the spear is smaller than the sword, which can cut because they only stab attacks, but there is no law that a spear should be at disadvantage against swords.
After three consecutive stabs, the attack using the elasticity of the Spear flooded on Park Sung’s side.
If it were my Aura teacher, Pierson, he would have knocked out the spear before it was fully powered, but Park Sung tried to cut off the attack path by drawing a sword in peace.
Spear-to-Sword Collision with Elasticity, Aura, and Mana.
As a result, Park Sung’s wrist couldn’t withstand the power.
It would have been less shocking if he just turned his upper body on and blocked it.
Maybe he watched a lot of cartoons, but he failed while trying to get into shape.
Park Sung’s sword fell to the floor, and I kicked him in the abdomen.
I didn’t use magic, and I didn’t use Aura with this kick.
Even without using my main skills, leap and penetration, I had to be speechless to see him fall out in just five stabs.
I just won with just a normal attack, in order to figure out the opponent’s abilities.
Thanks to me, he had no choice but to make a ‘what’ face.
“Let’s do it again.”
He also picked up the sword, unconvincing.
As seen in the expressway terminal, Park Sung released water around him and wrapped it around his body like a snake.
It seems that he will now show his strength in earnest.
Despite the use of the new power, he rolled over the floor in less than five seconds.
I was a little surprised by the anomalous water attack, but I didn’t feel a sense of crisis.
“This is embarrassing.”
Being compared to him itself was already humiliating to me.
“Hey, that’s ridiculous.”
Park Sung seemed to have completely lost his fighting spirit after two hits.
Looking at the sword, which was stuck in a tree, shivering he raised his head and made eye contact with me coldly looking down at him.
“I’m sorry! I’m so sorry!”
‘Now do you believe who is the real bigshot?’
I feel like a fool because I felt nervous and even thought about running away.
“Let’s sit over there, take care of the sword.”
His initial aggressive attitude was gone, he became now more submissive.
Separating the spear and putting it back in the bag, I questioned him.
“When you do a quest, you get a lot of stats and skills, but you’re incredibly weak.”
He looked shocked by my honest comment.
“First of all, could you tell me about your stats and skills?”
Then he began to write his stats and skills on the sand.
Slaughter (Active / LV-)
Mana Emission (Active / LV1)
Water skill (Active / LV1)
Automatic Recovery (Passive / LV1)
“It’s not indicated here, but there’s an option to increase Strength based on Stamina.”
“Is that it?”
He don’t look like he was lying seeing his face, but when I saw the list he wrote, I narrowed my eyes.
That’s because there was a big difference with mine.
My current skills are as below.
Slaughter (Active / LV-)
Mana Emission (Active / LV1)
Leap (Active / LV-)
Intuition (Passive / LV1)
Automatic Recovery (Passive / LV1)
Combat Assistance (Passive / LV1)
Penetration (Active / LV1)
Reduction (Passive / LV1)
Magic Exploration (Active / LV-)
I also have my own abilities that I gained, “Aura” and “Magic,” which were not marked separately here, and I also have the options to increase Strength according to Stamina.
If he spent the same amount of time on quests as I did, the difference shouldn’t be this big.
“How many quests have you completed?”
I have completed 12 quests so far.
One of these was from the fog.
“Did you recently start dreaming?”
“No, it was on the night of the 12th that I first set foot on the Music continent.
It’s the same day as me.
It didn’t make sense at first.
But his next words that followed brought me to my senses.
“I died while doing 30 orcs quests. Once I died, I never dreamed again.”
I opened my eyes wide and was surprised.
“Dying in a dream has no effect on reality. It’s not like you lose your strength.”
However, it leads to the conclusion that you will not be able to dream of the Mu continent and that you will not be able to complete the quest.
This was a really valuable piece of information I wouldn’t find out unless I died.
Park Sung said to have a smooth sailing adventure until the Goblin hunt.
But, from the Hobgoblin hunt, he faced many challenges and has experienced several near-death situations since hunting 30 play animals.
And in the end, he couldn’t cross the wall of the 30 orcs quest, and now he is out.
This is what we’ve come to.
Thanks to magic, I didn’t feel that Orc Quest was so difficult.
Even without magic, I thought I could finish it somehow if I used my head, but for Park Sung, it seems that the quest was a huge wall.
“When I used the map function to hunt for orcs alone, it was only one or two Orcs a day. However, I thought that I could not return to reality until I completed the quest, so I could take some time to clear it. But at one point, there was an eight-day time limit.”
Don’t tell me it was because of me?
It happened to be that same time when I didn’t complete the quest because I was learning magic.
“Thanks to that, it’s been a few days of no reward, and my impatience has grown. So I was overdoing it and I died.”
Is it because I was training magic?
It contrasts with my situation that I was kicked out by gaining 1 more Mana Stats.
Just as I had a stronghold in the village of Karas in the Kingdom of Kaelon, he was active in the village of Bern in the kingdom of Schuendark.
Also, if there was Gordon was in the village of Karas, there was a knight named Ted in the village of Bern. But because he failed to gain contact with the Noble Ted, who had died, he failed to get a strong foothold in the village like I did.
Fortunately, he avoided being expelled from the village by making efforts to complete the quest until the end, but the villagers did not treat Park Sung as kindly as before.
For your information, Park Sung gave me a good tip that I didn’t know.
There was a small temple in the village, where a high priest that has divine skills and some injuries are treated free of charge.
On the other hand, I had never been injured enough to need help from the temple, so I was unaware of it.
This, too… will be quite helpful.
“By the way, I’m good at it. Have you ever imagined that I would be stronger than you by completing more quests?”
“I thought the average person wouldn’t be able to complete the first quest or the Hobgoblin quest, let alone an Orc.”
Seriously, his mindset is so simple.
Maybe that’s why he was doing something stupid like a live broadcast.
“Anything else you want to know?”
Currently, I am collecting information from Park Sung, but I didn’t reveal any information about myself.
It was an unfair trade, but Park Sung could not complain at all.
“There are three more Dreamwalkers with who I am acquainted with.”
I’ve only just found one, and I didn’t think there would be people already in groups.
There is one more woman and two more men in his group, all of whom are said to have died on the Mu continent.
“Among them, I’m one of the strongest.”
That’s why he was full of groundless confidence.
“There’s a female college student named Park Yul, who has an exploration skill that can see the other person’s abilities. And that’s the reason why we’re here.”
“Then why didn’t you just try to fight me?”
“Not long ago, Yul was attacked. She was seriously injured and hospitalized, and she said it was done by another Dreamwalker.”
His sharp reaction now makes sense.
“Yul has been moving around Seoul for more than 10 days, but the Dreamwalker I’ve found has already been five people, including the one who attacked her. Now there are six of us, including you.”
I don’t know if the one who attacked the woman named Park Yul was a crazy man who was drunk or if there was a reason, but it was best not to follow her acts.
“What are you going to do if he attacks you after being so attention grabber in public?”
“I was hoping for that. I wanted to avenge Yul.”
But for me, he looked like someone who wanted more Moon Balloons.
After that I got the information I needed, I got out of my seat when there was nothing more to ask.
“By any chance, would you like to become our comrade? I know it’s a shame, but please. We need a leader like you.”
“I’m sorry, but I refuse your proposal.”
I’m sure he wanted to lean on me, but I’m not willing to have him with me, he will just be another baggage to carry.
Besides, I don’t know what’s going to happen if there is an attention seeker.
“If I were the leader of this country, I wouldn’t let a mysterious person with extraordinary powers roam the streets. We’ll catch him and experiment, or we’ll sneak him in. I think it’s better to be a little self-conscious and not be self-indulgent.”
“I’ll keep that in mind.”
“I’m going to go now. Don’t follow me.”
“Oh, I see.”
After a while I finished my business, I hid in the woods.
Then I took off the black cover that covered my bag and took out other clothes and new shoes to change my current outfit.
It’s not like I’m shooting a spy movie.
Since then, he has only moved to places where there are no CCTVs, digging into the crowds of subway stations.
Express Terminal, car rentals still parked, a state, there must be moved.
Still, it was a meaningful time to earn more than hard work.
