“Thank you, Father.”
– Don’t overdo it.
I breathed a sigh of relief after finishing the phone call with my father.
Although I am unemployed now, thanks to the trust fund I have accumulated, my father gave me 70 million won without saying much.
I wanted to ask for a business loan, but I couldn’t bring enough excuses to give so that they could grant me one.
On top of that, if I take out a loan as a deposit for my studio lease and add up to 120 million won in the meantime, I can make it.
And I recalled 30 million won in my monthly account, which I had never looked up to.
The money played a decisive role in my dismissal from the company and the money that I was neglecting because I felt like I was treated as trash if I were to use it.
That adds up to 150 million won.
“Are you Jung-woon?”
-Uh, what’s going on at this hour?-
“I have a favor to ask of you.”
-What do you want me to do?-
I didn’t end there and I even asked for a loan from my friends Jung-woon and In-sik.
The two friends willingly lent money, and each of them gave a huge sum of 20 million won.
Thanks to that, I could feel that the two guys were really good to me.
I should do better in the future.
For your information, I did not contact Cho-hee and Woo-chan, who is currently estranged from me.
If they contact me anyway, I won’t be able to talk to them well.
The total amount I have now is 190 million won.
It was a considerable amount for any ordinary people.
I moved quickly to open a stock account and bought T Chemicals shares.
“I never thought I’d do something like this..….”
I thought I would never step into a volatile market like stocks in my life.
The money I collected with the help of my parents and friends.
If the newspaper was wrong, it would ruin the trust of those who believed in me, but if it was wrong information in the first place, it would not have been rewarded as a Lower Level reward.
This was a golden opportunity.
After the market closed and I secured all the stocks at the right price, I swept my hair away.
The present price of T chemistry was 9,200 won.
But the newspaper said it would go up to 89,000 won.
In addition, there was other information in the newspaper, but it was far from the information on T chemistry that made the biggest profit within a month.
“Can I get more information about the future?”
If the lower compensation is this high, it is hard to tell what level it will be if information about the future is obtained from intermediate and higher rewards.
However, looking at the effects that are clearly different from the last lower-level reward, information about the future is not likely to be readily available.
“Come to think of it, the reward is given randomly according to the grade, but if I’m the only one who gets it, I don’t know if it’s really random, do I?”
My schedule has been rescheduled for the unexpected reward, but I have not put off what I am supposed to do today.
“Didn’t you really work out recently?”
“Yes, I’ve been busy.”
“You’ve got a lot of muscle for that. You are still staying fit.”
Joining the best-equipped fitness center in the neighborhood, I was conditioned by my trainer.
After about half an hour of testing, I was able to see that the skills gained from carrying out the quest were reflected in reality with the trainer’s response.
It is clear that muscles have been added to all parts of the body, which were not particularly plain.
It was much more comfortable to move the body, even though my strength increased by only 2 and my stamina and mana increased by 1.
“Well, that’s fine. If you’re right, you’ll get a good result with a little effort. Do you have any training requirements?”
“I’d rather grow muscle strength, stamina, and quickness than show muscle off.”
The trainer nodded loudly in my answer.
From the look on his face, I guess he liked my answer.
He also had a well-balanced body shape rather than a bumpy muscle.
“Okay, let’s work on the course together.”
Time is all that remains for the unemployed anyway.
He organized an intense course and we immediately started exercising.
After two hours of training, my whole body was heavy and exhausted, but I didn’t finish there and cut it off until late at night at a nearby Jujitsu studio.
It would be nice if there was a place to learn swinging skills, but sadly, the spear was too minor in Korea, and although there were swinging skills in Wushu, it seemed far from practical.
I think it would be better to practice the four moves that I learned from the guard, such as stabbing, cutting, hitting, and blocking.
I said that I wouldn’t put much meaning to my dream until yesterday, but I changed my mind even though it was only the third day.
I won’t stop trying to get a job till I’m satisfied with it, but I can’t take the quest lightly anymore.
As nearly 200 million won has already been raised and invested, it was natural for priorities to change.
After working out for two hours at Jujitsu gym following the two hours at the gym, the time was running toward midnight.
I’d like to practice swinging more, but unfortunately, it’s time to go on an adventure.
Back home, I washed myself clean and laid down in bed, I rolled up the corners of my mouth.
I closed my eyes with anticipation, even though I may go through another real battle.
Braveness or reckless.
I thought both of them were far from me, but I guess I liked these things, unexpectedly.
Expectations may be due to adventure or simple rewards, but I have also stepped into the world of my dreams today.
“Do you feel yourself?”
Now I opened my eyes with a sense of familiarity, and I saw the guard’s lounge lined with practice spears on the tent.
“How long have I been lying down?”
The familiar guard shrugged at my question.
“Maybe it’s been 10 minutes? Looks like you’ve had a lot of mental burns. I’m sure you’re relaxed now that you’re in town.”
It’s only been 10 minutes. The reality and the flow of time here are arbitrary.
When I got up from my seat, my whole body smelled stuffy.
I remembered rubbing grass and mud against Goblin to remove my smell.
“I think it’s better to wash up before stopping by the inn.”
“I guess so.”
“Looks like you’ve hunted a few goblins.”
“I thought you were reckless, but you knew how to fight.”
Even ordinary people, who have not fought, have no reason to lose to a Goblin if they are faithfully armed.
But practice is not as simple as theory.
The reason why I was able to enter the forest and finish hunting safely is that there is a map function that I possess.
“Did you find the baggage you wanted?”
“No, so I’m thinking of going back into the woods tomorrow afternoon.”
No matter what quest comes out, I plan to save money by hunting Goblin.
“I see. Take care of yourself.”
“Thank you for taking care of me.”
So I got out from the guard, I headed to the laundry area indicated on the map.
There were many women hitting the laundry in the laundry area.
“Well, let’s go settle the bill.”
Washing, regardless of the eyes of the women, I shook off the water roughly and headed to the market.
“Oh, you’re back alive.”
The first place I visited was the blacksmith’s shop.
I decided to dispose of the Goblin dagger there.
“The Goblin weapon only pays for minerals. If you still want to sell it, I’ll give you 9 pieces of iron coins. I’m paying for this a lot too. Goblin’s weapon contains a lot of impurities.”
Although he was a merchant, I didn’t think he was the right person to play tricks on customers, so I sold it right away without playing hard to get it.
That’s 4.5 copper coins.
It feels cheap for a life-threatening fight, but I think it’s not bad because I’ve earned more than to stay in the inn.
It was very hard to earn more than three copper a day from a regular part-time job here.
The next stop is the general store.
There, I sold one Goblin leather, and the store owner said it was in great condition, so they gave me four iron coins more.
If I would have sold all the Goblin leather, today’s profits would be 6.5 copper coins.
“That’s not bad.”
If I get used to hunting, I’ll catch more monsters, so there’ll be more fights.
All my assets now are 1.4 silver.
Among them, I decided to invest a silver coin in leather gauntlets with iron plates.
It was to protect my hand in front of the spear for more safety.
In addition, I bought a few more spikes, leaving only three copper coins for accommodation.
“What a day.”
Living a day here seems to suit me so well now.
Before heading to the inn, I headed to the vacant lot where I always practiced swinging.
In the meantime, the sun was hiding beyond the Bert Mountains.
Practice stabbing at the red sunset for about 10 minutes.
Finally, today’s quest has occurred.
