Thanks to the emergency power, there have been no major disasters at airports, railways, and hospitals, but many citizens have been trapped inside elevators while traffic accidents occurred everywhere.
Some citizens attempted criminal acts, including looting by taking advantage of the chaos from the crisis, but no inhumane incidents occurred due to soldiers’ massive policy.
Compared to other countries’ situations, South Korea was a country that passed the surge of crime safely.
China, the United States, and surprisingly Japan also reported to have seen a surge in crime overnight.
“If we put this situation on the Internet, it could become a world-class prophecy.”
But I have no desire to step up to the plate more than necessary.
Such behavior would attract attention towards me, and personal safety have always been my top priority.
Even if I just guessed such ridiculous case, I could still be caught by higher ups.
I’m surprised by these extraordinary situation, but there’s nothing I can do for everyone.
Even if the government announces a major ceasefire, I will only be treated as a madman in the end, and specified that I will be restricted because of my behavior due to causing unnecessary attention.
I just think the best preparation I can make is to make sure my relatives don’t get hurt by this.
“Cheer up, people two months from now.”
I turned towards the economy section after a brief pep talk to myself.
I mainly looked at the stock chart, but there were no notable articles, so I checked stocks that would soar one by one compared to the current stock price.
Even though it was information of two months later, there was no big increase like T chemistry this time.
The biggest increase is in sports of about 3.2 times.
Stock prices also soared for H Bio, a new drug developer, that developed anti-cancer drugs.
It was one of the few stocks that recorded an upward trend, even though almost all stocks recorded a downward trend due to the Great surge of crime.
“It’s not as crazy as T-chemical, but It means that in just two months, the stock will triple.”
T Chemical’s shares are now at 70 percent of the target.
The rise was steeper than expected, although S Electronics may be buying its stocks.
I can decide whether or not to deduct T-chemical shares in advance by looking at the rise of H-Bio.
Having scrutinized the economy thoroughly, I read society, politics, and topics.
Then I found a high-profile article.
[Kidnapped by the government and tested the human body?]
[Mr.Park, a self-proclaimed psychic who has been attracting attention by making absurd claims, is a test taker who has been preparing for civil servants for 10 years.]
[Psychiatrists recommended hospital treatment, saying it was just a symptom of stress-induced delirium, but Park widely show his ability. It is attracting a lot of people’s attention.]
I don’t know if about Mr.Park was true or not, but it was enough to raise my guard against the government.
I left the studio more than an hour later than usual, sleeping in my temple.
The Kaelon Standard Knight Aura, which was obtained as a reward for the quest, was a strategic asset cherished by the state and close attackers used it as a training method that allows them to deal using Aura, which can be also called as the trademark of the knights.
If the circle is located near the heart, the Aura is condensed on the lower abdomen, and the size I coul feel now was as small as a single finger.
But the energy felt at the small Aura point was qualitatively different from the mana which spread all over the body.
Aura transforms mana into its own, and accumulates it, feeling a little more heavy and sturdy than the mana used in magic.
When I opened my closed eyes, I got up from my seat recovering my energy.
“I could automatically convert Mana to aura.”
I’ve got my hands on the Aura, but this field has no teacher to guide me like Gordon.
However, because it was a reward, the operation method and outline of the Aura law were imprinted in my head as if I had trained for a long time.
My current level of ability as Aura user is between 1st~2nd circle of magic.
It’s a small amount, but using this Aura can greatly improve my physical ability.
Even if it does not yet shape energy to the outside like Expert, it is clearly compared to the previous level of rapid, sensitive, and explosive power.
I can only maintain my strength for about half an hour yet.
But if I keep increasing the size of the Aura, in time it will increase slowly.
Unlike other skills, Aura can magically train myself to build strength, and I clearly understands how to train it.
Perhaps it is easier to learn it than magic.
While continuing to train at the Yongsan mansion, which I had moved to yet, I looked at the clock at the sudden doorbell.
I didn’t know that time had passed so much because I was absorbed in the Aura method.
“Yes, wait a minute.”
I put the separated spear into my bag and quickly went down to the gate, and the courier who parked the one-ton truck in front greeted me.
“Yes, that’s right. Wait a minute.”
Then I opened the gate wide and they put the boxes down without a break.
“I’ve been a courier for a long time, but I’ve never had so much boxes delivered to a house.”
Most of the contents of the one-ton truck were unloaded at my house.
Because of that, the couriers had to carry many box for a long time.
“Thank you very much.”
“No, I’m rather grateful. We’re earning per case, so we’re lucky in this case.”
I scratched the back of my head when I saw boxes piled up at the entrance of the front door after the impressive courier left.
“I bought emergency food just in case.”
There are so many.
I had no choice but to have it delivered because it would be too much of work for me, but what did the driver think when he was putting down all this food?
Thank you for those who donated towards our co-translator. She has now returned to her home and recovering from the trauma.
