If the principle of the 1st circle is a property transformation, then the principle of the 2nd circle is a combination.
Adding different properties to make it stronger and more effective.
It was a simple and natural principle.
I smiled, savoring the 2nd circle I felt in my heart.
Within five weeks of learning magic, I achieved the 2nd circle already.
Gordon, my teacher, said, “A magical genius has appeared,” and was excited.….
[2nd Circle achieved]
[Mana increases by 5.]
[Intelligence increases by 1.]
Before I could enjoy the message that came to mind, I returned to reality immediately.
I woke up 10 minutes later than usual and remembered what I had to do today after being immersed in the presence of 2nd circles for a long time.
First of all, collecting Earth’s things or information that would make money on the Mu continent.
And an investigation of the new home called a safe house.
Yesterday, I simply checked the condition of the safe house, but given the unusual name, I thought there must be something hidden.
But before that.
“Morning exercise comes first.”
For some reason, I am reluctant to go to the Kkachisan Mountain Park because I feel like the man who used to call me Warrior is going to die.
No matter how much I cover my face, the intuition of a person is not to be taken lightly.
Even if I was not sure, if I suddenly stick to it and talk to it, I may get caught with my voice or if I ignore it without answering, he will be suspicious again.
It’s better not to go near Kkachisan park for a while.
“I’ll have to I exercise in the safe house.”
Unlike this studio apartment, there was a spacious yard in the safe house.
I think I can do morning exercises including spear practice there.
While I am at it, I did some research on safe houses.
I simply washed up, dressed in training clothes, and wore a heavy backpack.
And I took a taxi right in front of my house and headed to the Yongsan Triangle, not towards the park.
A residential area lined with detached houses and low-rise commercial buildings.
It doesn’t feel like a rich village, and it’s just a normal neighborhood on the surface, but it’s said that even old buildings that look easy are simply over 1 billion won.
Until then, I didn’t care because buying a house or land was just a dream, but after I got my property, I realize how hard it was to get a house in the center of Seoul.
If I live normally, isn’t it impossible for an individual to get a house worth more than 1 billion won?
Arriving in front of my house, people’s eyes are on me.
Unsuited to a common residential area, this rich house was the safe house I got yesterday’s reward.
I opened the gate calmly with the key.
For your information, the gate was unlocked yesterday and the key was placed on the porch.
And the inside door is a door lock, initially, the password is set to 1234, so I changed it to the number I often use.
“How to manage this big house in the future?”
I’m going to clean up my stock next month and bring my parents to live with me, but it would be funny to ask them to take care of it, so I think I should hire someone.
Not long ago, I was kicked out of the company and couldn’t find a job, but things have now changed completely.
How would they react if I showed my current situation to people who ignored me?
I’m a human being and I have a lot of things piled up, so I kept thinking like a child.
If I look at the house from the outside, the fence is about 4 meters tall, because the first floor was underground, and I had to open the garage, open the gate, and come up to the stairs to go to the garden and the house.
The land is 150 pyeong.
The building is 65 pyeong, including the first and second floors, 40 pyeong on the first floor, and 25 pyeong on the second floor with terraces.
There are a total of four rooms, two individual bathrooms, one public bathroom, and two kitchens, one on the first and second floors.
The overall color of the house was just my cup of tea, black and white.
However, as if the compensation was only home, there was nothing except a built-in refrigerator, sink, and cabinet.
There will be a lot of money soon anyway, so it will be fun to buy home appliances and furniture to suit my taste.
Looking around the house, I came out to the garden.
“After the exercise, a detailed investigation.”
When I took off my coat in the corner of the garden, assembled the carbon spear, and grabbed it in my hand, I felt a strange relief and a sharp sensation came to life.
Afterward, I practiced stabbing, cutting, hitting, blocking, the basic four moves.
It is the basic swinging skill from the Kingdom of Kaelon, where I practiced every single day after choosing a spear with a weapon.
The point was not to mess up the posture from beginning to end, with each movement repeating for 10 minutes.
Is it because it’s not just a training exercise that wields power?
After digesting all the set amount of practice, I will always sweat even though my skills have increased.
Wiping sweat with a refreshing look on my face, I took a step toward the pretty house with a towel on my shoulder.
A full-fledged investigation into safe houses began after the exercise.
I couldn’t find anything strange, so I released mana all over the house just in case.
In a small room on the first floor, I could find a secret passage leading to the basement.
Looking at the stairs revealed as the floor split on both sides, I slowly walked, swallowing my dry saliva.
And by the time I thought it was deeper than the garage location, a large space appeared that could only be seen as a bunker.
Since there is no way that ordinary people can make such a thing, the option included was clear when the existence of God rewarded them.
The underground bunker was equipped with bedrooms, toilets, and bathrooms, and water tanks and self-generators were also installed just in case.
(For those who watched parasite movie, the house is like that with the underground one.)
Thanks to this, I learned that safe houses are a greater reward than expected, but on the other hand, I had to question why they were given as compensation.
“Am I going to use this in the future and make something out of it?”
I frowned and threw a question into the air that certainly would not be answered.
What the hell is going to happen in the future that will make bet on this reward?
Looking around the bunker with a serious look on my face, I sighed quietly.
“Just in case, I need to fill it up with daily necessities and emergency food.”
I didn’t feel good all day, brooding over the bunker I found in the safe house.
“Sorry, I’m sorry. Are you all right?”
Thanks to him, there were many mistakes.
While walking on the street, I bump into a classmate in Jujitsu classes, and I almost hurt my opponent by pulling him off too hard during the battle.
Fortunately, the opponent didn’t get much damage because he failed, but it was enough to surprise the people around him.
“That monster, he’s so…Did you see that? Myung-Chul was pulled off with his strength?”
“He’s average in size, but where does that power come from? Myung-Chul must weigh 40kg more.”
Although people at Jijutsu paid attention to the fact that I ripped off a large figure weighing more than 110kg with force to the situation where the opponent almost got hurt, I felt so sorry that I had to hand him an apology.
“Oh, no, it’s not. That’s the experience.”
Myung-Chul laughed it off like a big man, but his face was showing embarrassment as expected when I saw the corners of his mouth and his red ears.
I should buy him a meal later.
Anyway, the reward I received so pleasantly gave me anxiety, and my already pessimistic mind kept thinking the worst.
“Is it a sign that monsters are making a big splash?”
“Or a war?”
Whatever it is, it is best not to use a bunker, but I honestly think that a bunker would not have been given for no reason.
“I’ve been trying to be strong just in case, but now I can’t be complacent.”
It would be better to assume the worst and prepare for psychological stability even if I am not willing.
And suddenly, I started to think that’s why I made a lot of money in reality.
Day 14 of reality, Day 64 in Mu continent.
As soon as I achieved the 2nd circle, I fainted again, and Gordon joked that I might have an allergy to creating circles.
But I couldn’t laugh pleasantly at Gordon’s joke.
Seeing my unusual face, Gordon was quite worried.
“I’ve had that look before,” Gordon said, resting his chin on the table.
“That’s exactly the look on my face when I came to you asking you to be my disciple.”
We’ve only been together for about five weeks, but was it because we’ve been together face to face?
Gordon, who read my mind without difficulty, smirked.
“Don’t hesitate to speak out.”
Neither do I, but Gordon has a personality that likes straightforwardness.
I spoke seriously in my most determined voice.
“I want to run a business. I need your help.”
“You only ask me a favor.”
I know it’s shameless, but Gordon was one of the most successful men I’ve ever known on the Mu continent.
His help was essential to what I thought was going to happen.
I looked him in the eye unflinchingly for a favor, and Gordon soon shrugged.
“Well, wizardry isn’t a win-win relationship. Shall I listen to it closely?”
