Note: if you have watched a Parasite Korean movie, the house is based on that but with a bigger basement where the guy hid.
I carried in the boxes piled up in front.
My strength is 14, my stamina is 12.
The constitution itself has changed due to a three-fold increase in strength and a four-fold increase in stamina compared to the first time I wandered around the Mu continent.
Thanks to this, no matter how many boxes I moved, I didn’t feel tired at all.
Since no one sees the inside of the house, I used floating magic to unload things through the narrow bunker entrance.
Using magic, it didn’t take long to move about 100 boxes.
I smoothed my chin looking at the emergency food piled up in what appeared to be a foodshed.
“I’m gonna have to order 20 more boxes to fill it up.”
Of course, I don’t have to fill it all, but when I look at the size of the food storage, I feel like I have to fill it up.
Why do I feel that there’s a reason for this big size as the warehouse?
It should take a lot of money to fill this place, but it wasn’t that much money for me now.
I didn’t order water because I have water magic, but I think I need to have a minimum capacity when I am absent.
“If I look at what I’ve been through so far, it’s definitely going to explode.”
However, the newspaper shows that although the Great Crisis broke out on July 20, causing great confusion, there is no desperate situation in which the world would turn upside down and threaten humanity to survive until then.
It means that until that time I just have to be careful inside the fog.
“I’ll have to buy a gasoline emergency generator.”
After leaving the bunker, I went to the bathroom to wash off my sweat from training.
Today, there are other people who will be coming to the house beside the courier.
They were none other than my parents.
Originally, I was going to tell them about the house a little later, but suddenly I thought it was now very necessary.
Afterward or now, all that changes is the excuse of the process of getting your hands on the house.
In fact, at first, I was worried that I would expose my parents to danger if I was together as many accidents occur around me.
However, I thought it would be safer to stick together as much as possible because it would be dangerous if my parents had problems without me, just like what happened abroad.
That’s why I decided not to pay too much and quickly told my parents about my plan.
My parents are coming at 2 o’clock, so they will be here soon.
At least I can’t greet them with the smell of sweat.
When I opened the gate after the phone call that they had arrived, my mother and father stood puzzled.
“Are you here?”
“Huh? Uh… yeah.”
“Come on in.”
I welcomed my parents and brought them inside.
“What’s this house?”
Looking around with puzzled expressions, the two asked while gazing around at the magnificent house.
“It’s my house.”
In a light answer, my mother tilted her head suddenly, asking what I meant, and I opened the front door with a smile.
“It’s literally a house in my name, and I’m going to live here with you two.”
Of course, I know that the current situation was hard to believe.
But I couldn’t tell my parents that it was a reward for a quest, so I had to lie.
My father glanced around the house and yard, and said, narrowing the gap between his eyes.
“At this rate, the land area alone is 150 pyeong. Even if I roughly calculate it to be around 5,000 per pyeong, it would be over 7 billion won.”
“It is actually 7,700,000,000.”
My mother grabbed my hand with a throbbing look and glared at me, and my father said, “Explain quickly.”
I had never been interested in the house, so I didn’t know the exact value, but my father, who was a senior, seems to have a rough estimate just by looking at him.
“I am on the stock market.”
When I smiled awkwardly and scratched my cheek, my mother pinched my side.
I immediately showed her a copy of the register instead of answering.
“Gift? Who is this Kim Hana? No, more tax than that? A house like this would cost at least 2 billion won from gift tax alone?”
“2 billion in taxes?”
“At least 2 billion. I don’t know the housing gift tax rate, but it could be also over 3 billion.”
My mother’s shocked expression almost made me laugh amidst the serious atmosphere.
I also answered simply.
“The tax issue is all solved. You can check with the IRS, so relax.”
“No, how did you deal with the tax? Where did you get two to three billion?”
It’s a perfectly natural response, they are sweating because they are so persistent in asking.
Perhaps the two were worried about me.
“I earned it. I borrowed from my father and invested in stocks.”
It’s only been about 10 days since I borrowed money from my father.
My father knows that my initial investment will not exceed 200 million at the most.
So he looked totally unconvinced.
“Yes, aside from taxes, who is this Kim Hana that gifted you the house?”
“The one who hit the jackpot because of me. I actually got a lot of help from her.”
But because I am still their child, they must feel that I’m hiding something.
No matter how rich i was, there’s no way anyone can afford a 7 billion won house.
My father eventually sighed deeply and asked as I kept answering hastily.
“How likely is this house to be a problem?”
“I have 4.5 billion in loans, and I’ve put them in stocks. It’s more than 7 billion now, so I don’t think there’s a problem.”
“You, by the way…”
My father, shook his head as if he was saying he give up arguing with me.
Unlike my father, who reached a conclusion like that, my mother looked anxiously at me.
“You’re not doing anything illegal, are you?”
This situation doesn’t bother me at all because I know they care about me.
I answered pleasantly with my thumbs up at my mother’s question.
“Of course not, I’m not that stupid, so don’t worry.”
“As long as it isn’t illegal.….”
I am the only pride of a normal family.
However, the pride cracked for the first time last year, but without seeing me for a moment, I appeared again with billions, or more than 10 billion won in assets.
No wonder they thought it was absurd.
It wasn’t up to my personal skills.
“We only need furniture and appliances, so you can move in tomorrow.”
The interior is already perfect, and these days, home appliances are delivered on the same day, and I don’t think there will be a problem with that.
My parents seemed to be troubled by the sudden suggestion, but soon they nodded, saying they understand.
“Wouldn’t you feel uncomfortable living with us?”
“Of course not.”
“Yes, we have things to sort out, so it’ll take a few days.”
“This is ridiculous… ridiculous……. I didn’t expect us to live in a house like this.”
I think it went over well somehow.
It’s entirely thanks to my parents trusting me and letting it slide.
Since then, the two of them looked around every corner of the house and continued to be surprised at the latest facilities.
After looking around the house, I ate out with my parents for a long time.
Then we stopped by an electronics store to decide on home appliances and bought a bed, a table, and a sofa at a furniture store.
My parents kept saying it was useful to get the appliances from home, but I think they were too old and they must be replaced.
“Isn’t that too much?”
“It’s not too much to do now.”
I had spent about 30 million won for today, but after buying furniture and electronics, my balance quickly ran out.
Black tea smells different depending on the method of manufacture and the location of production.
Freshness reminiscent of a green apple.
Freshness reminiscent of wildflowers.
Even the sweetness that reminds me of honey.
In addition, black tea has a variety of different scents, and it is like a perfume that can add freshness through combination.

“Aren’t you born in the capital? Why are you so surprised at the sight of a provincial Earl?”
Following my teacher Gordon, we arrived in Adrian City, the capital of the state where the village of Karas is from.
Magnificent castles and solid gates with numerous flags fluttering.
Inside it, red-roofed houses line up and the castle, located in the center, shows off its elegant appearance.
A scene reminiscent of a scene from a fantasy movie.
It was only natural for exclamations to pop out from his mouth.
One peculiarity is that all the people traveling to and from this European city, look like Asians.
Thanks to this, the exotic scenery felt a little familiar.
“It doesn’t feel like the capital.”
I don’t even know what the capital looks like.
“By the way, you have enough stamina to hunt with a spear. This teacher is already exhausted without doing anything.”
We traveled in a carriage for half a day to arrive at Adrian City, but it was not hard at all, perhaps because of my automatic recovery skills.
Gordon kept stretching himself after seating for a long time.
Seeing him suffer like this, I wonder if he was the same one who burst with passion while lecturing about magic in the carriage.
I really don’t think anyone else can play the role of a teacher.
“Thia is what good about the wizard. There is always a free pass when the line is so long.”
I glanced at the long line of checkpoints behind my back as I moved along with Gordon, who passed by the gate leisurely.
“It’s like a small benefit to a full-time wizard from the Royal Tower. If you register to the tower and take your circle to the next level, that’s benefit will also be given to you.”
A wizard-like himself is a privileged class of the world.
And I’m safely settled within the privileged class.
From now on, even if every one of my peers runs to success with me, I stand in an advantageous position that is not comparable to ordinary people whose freedom is restricted.
I think being Gordon’s pupil is the best choice I’ve ever made.
Moving along the main street of the city for about 10 minutes.
A huge cylindrical tall tower welcomed us.
[Royal Wizard Tower Adrian Branch]
I will register as a wizard here today, and I have an appointment to meet the branch manager.
The head of Adrian’s branch is a 6th class wizard and baron noble who is well acquainted with Gordon.
It was Gordon’s private master and patron that replaces his dead teacher.
In addition, it is also a starting line that will become a great help to distribute black tea to sell.
