The current stats of Jihoon is:
I will be putting this at the top every 2 chapters and I will update it according to stats he gained and decided by the author.
For example on my calculations his stats are greater or lower, those would be updated according to what the author wrote.
“It was definitely a Goblin.”
I’ve caught a few goblins so far, and I am really familiar with them.
But Goblin, who attacked me and was rebounded by me, disappeared within the fog.
I dropped the Goblin’s bloodstained billiards on the floor and put on a serious look on my face.
I don’t know if it only happens to me or if something is wrong with the world right now, but the sense of crisis I felt at this moment is beyond any words.
I knew that my adventure on the Mu continent was dangerous, but it was only a dream world story.
If the threat goes beyond the dream to reality, the way I adhered my life to so far was bound to change.
I don’t think this is the time to be idle and take care of the job interview.
In the future, it was necessary to prepare me here in reality.
“I need to have a proper weapon.”
Having lost my composure, I didn’t think need to think about laws on weapon possession or any illegal weapon alterations.
I wish I could get a gun or a bomb, but these are things that cannot be held by any individuals in Korea.
Even if I don’t have a gun, I have my current skills, so I think I can protect myself if I am given a proper weapon.
Before I knew it, I was searching for a blacksmith in Seoul.
“Am I making a big deal out of it?”
No, this was a perfectly natural response to a situation that cannot be written off as a coincidence.
There is no harm in being cautious about anything.
Even more so if it has something to do with my personal security.
“Wasn’t there some kind of hazy smoke in the middle just now?”
“Yeah, it’s gone.”
I heard a conversation between the two middle-aged men while climbing the mountain quickly.
Their conversation, made me think that the extraordinary event just now might not be just for me.
If anyone else had been involved in the fog, there must have been a major loss of life.
“A double-edged sword that can be separated from the handle into a screw?”
“Yes, and I’d like the center to be about 5 millimeters thick.”
Surprisingly, there were still quite a few blacksmiths in Seoul that customized weapons.
When I visited a small but famous place for its blacksmithing skill, I asked the owner with a good smile.
“Is it possible to make it?”
“What are you going to use this for?”
Whether my answer felt suspicious, he squinted.
However, he replied without saying anything about whether he intended to ignore the request or not.
“A knife cannot exceed 14 centimeters in length except for cooking and civil engineering. Is that all right with you?”
I was thinking of making it more than 30cm in his mind, but I was forced to nod at his attitude of drawing a line.
The owner of the blacksmith’s shop in Karas Village would respond with a smile, but here in Seoul, I didn’t feel very good being look at with eyes full of doubts.
Well, I don’t think there’s anything I can do about it either.
My request is unusual and my answer is suspicious.
“Instead, please make them identical sizes. Make the handle part long.”
“We have to put the blade on both sides, and it’s a little expensive because of its thickness and special shape. I should get 30% more for each.”
Is it expensive?
I think it’s cheap.
“Our blacksmith’s proud steel doesn’t break, no matter how tough it is. You can’t think of it as a rough iron knife.”
Looking at his complexion, it looked hard to cut prices.
“That’s great. When will this be finished?”
“Until tomorrow at the earliest.”
“Then please do so by tomorrow. Please make it strong.”
“Leave it to me.”
If I told the blacksmith that I want to make a spear, he won’t make it for me.
If I make an accident in the modern world, the creator would be in trouble.
So I thought that I would ask the blacksmith to make a blade and the body be made in a carbon manufacturer.
This would be expensive, but I wanted to make a proper spear.
After leaving the blacksmith’s shop with a down payment of 200,000 won, I went to a company that sells self-defense equipment, bought body armor, gloves, a bulletproof hat, and a gas gun that can be purchased without a three-stage stick and police permission.
It’s a burdensome expenditure on an already absent life, but thanks to the experience of Goblin’s dagger appearing in front of my eyes, I never thought this behavior was excessive.
Maybe I only ended up spending nonsense without ever using this purchased equipment.
However, I thought that this was not the end of the game, whether it was my intuition skill or a simple guess.
Afterward, I contacted a carbon-handling engineer and ask for a sturdy 1.7-meter-long rod that could be separated into three tiers.
Perhaps I don’t know, but I think it will create a stronger spear here than the one used in the Mu continent.
After preparing various equipment and completing the intensive exercises at Muay Thai and Jujitsu, the day ended before I knew it.
A sense of satisfaction only after moving roughly.
Sweating away with a sense of crisis, I completely forgot about the interview.
Before I lay down in bed late at night, my mother called me to ask if I did well in the interview.
I had no choice but to give my mother a vague answer that I didn’t know well.
And I said to reassure my disappointed mother.
‘Don’t worry. I’m preparing something, so you can look forward to it.’
My mother laughed quietly, saying, “Don’t overdo it,” but her voice was full of worries.
Parents may feel the same way about their children, but my parents seem to feel very sorry for my unreasonable situation of mine, who have never received such setbacks in my whole life.
If I clean up T-chemistry’s stock safely, I should do something to show off around me.
Let’s put aside my thoughts about reality…….
Back on the Mu Continent today, I headed to the mansion outside the village of Karas.
The mansion had a good appearance that was inconsistent with the size of the village, and when I knocked, a woman, who looked like a maid came out.
“How may I help you?”
“I’d like to see Mr. Gordon. Gordon told me to come whenever.”
“Oh, is this Jihoon?”
I don’t know if Gordon spoke for or simply because of my fame in town, but the maid knew my name.
“Come on in. I’ll take you to the meeting room.”
And she led me into the mansion with a smile.
I realized it when he handed me gold coins casually, the wizard seems to have a lot of money.
Perhaps the biggest reward from the last quest is not the gold coins, but Gordon’s connections to the upper class.
“I’ll let the esteemed wizard know about Jihoon’s visit. Please wait a minute,”
I waited for Gordon while drinking tea and cookies from the maid.
It was a high-end product that was rarely tasted in Karas Village, where tea and cookies were wasted and the meat was not properly seasoned with salt.
Of course, the luxury goods here do not taste better than the ready-made products in Korea.
“Oh, Jihoon! Welcome!”
It wasn’t long before the maid called for Gordon.
He greeted me with a bright expression.
“Nice to meet you, Gordon.”
“I’ve been looking forward to your visit, but why are you here now?”
“I was going to visit you in person today because I was disappointed.”
I thought he was just polite at the time, but I guess he really meant it.
Well, his closeness was a quest reward, so this is not out of ordinary.
I also came to experiment with something using that closeness.
“In fact, I’m here to ask you a favor.”
“Please? If it’s not too much, I’ll listen.”
“Maybe it’s too much.”
With my serious attitude, he stroked his dull chin and soon shrugged.
“Let’s hear it.”
What I’m going to do today?
“Can you teach me magic?”
I want to learn skills on my own, not from quests or rewards.
In a dream, I can stay without going back to reality unless I complete the quest.
I thought that if I could use that to train myself and become stronger, I would have more stability in my safety in reality.
Staying for days or dozens of days in a dream while it is only a day, in reality, seems to pass by very fast, but I couldn’t think of a way to secure my safety in the reality sooner.
The sure way to keep me safe was to be strong.
I pushed the request without considering my embarrassing position.
If he grudgingly approves, it will be a success, and if he refuses, showing displeasure with persistent requests, he may think there was nothing to lose.
But wouldn’t it be worth looking forward to his answer since I am his lifesaver and the intimacy certified by the system of this world?
“Magic is not something that can be taught without the permission of the tower.”
Gordon’s answer was different from what I was expecting.
“Is that right?”
But I think a lot of my seniors do that.
To always hear a man through.
“Instead, if you become my disciple, this was easy to solve.”
I looked at Gordon with wide eyes, and he asked me with a nice smile.
“Will you be my disciple?”
Of course, there is no reason to refuse.
I accepted his offer, cheering inwardly.
