The revenge that the student could do was quite small.
It is similar to ordinary students, such as assaults in areas without CCTVs and during the sparring, or subtle bullying using gang members, but it rarely spreads to murder.
If you think about it, it’s natural. Students entering the military academy was already a rouser to be a hunter, and in the case of the Seongjin Military Academy, all the students have some potential recognized.
In other words, if you graduate like this, you can walk on a stable career path with a proposal from various guilds, so why do you want to commit a big crime?
But this was also for normal people, and there are some crazy people everywhere.
‘You son of a bitch! Crazy nut.’
And so was Ban Kyeong-hoon, who sent a letter to Kang Yoo-sik.
Looking down at the letter in his hand, Kang Yoo-sik smiled and read it again.
The content was simple. The previous sparring was unfair, so let’s fight again this weekend outside of school.
In other words, it was a direct revenge, but if reading it up to here, you might have wondered if it was necessary to go out, but there was an interesting suggestion written below.
‘Five hundred million if you win.….’
If you win once again, you’ll get 500 million won.
He is not a top hunter, but a freshman of Silver class. Even he has not enough money and entered the academy as a special admission case. It is a very, very big money for him.
The top hunter may not know, but it was a very, very large sum of money for a freshman in Silver Class or even a student who entered the school on a special admission basis because he had no money.
‘He is fairly confident, and smart.’
After being tied up with debt ratings, Kang wondered the case was over when Ban missed several classes, but he guesses Ban was more diligent than he thought.
Kang Yoo-sik, who was laughing at the letter, thought for a moment about what to do with this, and soon made up his mind and sent a reply to the phone number written on it.
[Let’s do it.]
Once anything is on track, everything will go smoothly.
It was the same with Kang Yoo-sik’s campus life, especially in Namgoong Ryun’s specialized classes.
“It’s a special mask. You have also found the proper method of mana arrangement, so practice until you can use it in any situation.”
Namgoong Ryun, who called Kang Yoo-sik to the lab, handed him a special mask for him who was leading the way alone.
The mask, which suppresses breathing and mana to make control difficult, was divided into a total of one to six stages, and Kang Yoo-sik’s mask, which Namgoong Ryun made by himself, was special.
Although there are 1 to 6 levels of marking, all of them are secretly added 2 levels, and they are actually 3 to 8 levels. It starts in the middle before Kang gets used to it.
‘I’m going to measure your skills this time fully.’
It usually takes at least two weeks to get used to the first stage and use the mana arrangement skillfully in the third stage of inhibition.
It is also a standard for students with great potential, so it should take at least two months for Kang Yoo-sik to Namgoong Ryun.
The day after Namgoong Ryun handed Kang a mask to be sure that he was not wrong, he pretended to close his eyes and glanced at Kang on Thursday, the second class.
Far from two months, Kang created a perfect mana arrangement in three stages in just two days.
Seeing the figure, Namgoong Ryun even forgot that he was secretly watching, and Kang Yoo-sik looked at the double helix’s mana with a tired expression.
‘Whoa, I finally got the sense back.’
It would be strange for an ordinary hunter to wear a special mask, but for Kang Yoo-sik, who was suffering from lung disease before his return, the breakdown of his breathing and mana was as usual.
Therefore, maintaining the control of mana even in extreme situations was imprinted on instinct, and as a result, he adapted to stage 3 with a single day of practice.
“What do you mean already? Even if you’re not talented, you’ll get used to level one soon.”
Namgoong wanted to shout, “That’s level three, you madman!” but Namgoong Ryun said nothing because he couldn’t admit to having played tricks.
Kang Yoo-sik, who turned Namgoong Ryun into a dumb as an oyster, showed him getting used to the fourth level for the rest of his time.
And such outspoken progress was not so different in Lee Chang-wan’s specialized classes.
[You’ve acquired a double helix-compression (C).]
Compression was also acquired as a skill to see if decades of discipline were not in vain, and Lee Chang-wan laughed in vain at the sight of a perfectly compressed flame.
It seems like yesterday when he said he would kick Kang out if it takes more than two weeks to acquire control, but Kang learned control and compression in four days after starting the class.
It was not just a little bit of handling, but a level comparable to himself, so Lee was no longer impressed.
‘This guy was born to learn my vision magic!’
He just began to feel the fate that followed him!
Kang Yoo-sik answered while shaking his lips as Lee Chang-wan softly called his name without swear words.
“Uh. Now call me Master, not Sir.”
“However, I’m still lacking..….”
“I bought something for you when I heard you lack of mana a few days ago.”
At the sight of Lee Chang-wan taking out an unusual wooden box, Kang Yoo-sik opened his mouth with a cough.
“Hmmm. I got it. Master.”
“Yes, as expected, you know my meaning well.”
He looked snobbish, but Lee just smiled as if he liked Kang.
Lee Chang-wan, remembered by Kang Yoo-sik before his return, looked like a true craftsman who hated secular things like money, but in fact, he was a little different.
Lee Chang-wan did not hate worldly things; he simply hated Kang Yoo-sik, who had no chance of learning his vision magic!
“It’s a Soryongryuk pill. It will raise not only the mana but also the other stats evenly.”
It costs 50 million Won per unit. Considering Lee Chang-wan’s annual salary, it was not that expensive, but it was not cheap.
He gave this valuable one 3 days after giving Taechunggi pill. Kang Yoo-sik looked dumbfounded, thinking that Lee would give a cheaper wonder drug.
‘He is serious…….’
In other words, after years of making vain efforts, only in four days, a student suddenly appeared who handled control and compression as perfectly as he did.
He would certainly try to hold on no matter how much he spent.
‘But considering this old man’s personality, I can’t let our guard down.’
If he doesn’t care, Lee will throw away whatever money he has spent.
Kang Yoo-sik, who recounted that he should never let his guard down, finished the day’s class by taking the medicine with the help of Lee Chang-wan.
“I’ll see you next week, then.”
“If you want to learn on the weekend, feel free to contact me.”
After closing the lab, Kang Yoo-sik looked down at his body, which became lighter by taking the medicine.
The energy of the wonder drug is still melting, so he is not sure how much it will rise, but the total stats will rise by more than 30.
‘The growth phase certainly tastes like this.’
The more money is spent, the more stats are increased. Kang Yoo-sik was satisfied with the sense that he had never felt before his return and moved to the sparring hall.
He usually takes a rest at the dorm and goes to dinner, but he added a schedule with Kim Jin-hyuk after he received the letter.
Kim Jin-hyuk, who holds a sword for practice and makes a serious face.
Kang Yoo-sik smiled a little bit at the scene, which reminded him of the Kumkang Shingum before returning.
At the same time as he answered, Kim Jin-hyuk’s body rushed the floor, and Kang Yoo-sik immediately bounced his finger.
Like when he fought with Ban Kyeong-hoon, the ignition magic went into the vital points accurately. It was too much for a student of Silver Class to respond.
Kim twisted his body without blinking an eye and avoided all the magic of ignition.
‘Is it an Accelerated avoidance?’
B-level skill of accelerated avoidance, which amplifies all speed including reaction speed when dodging. Kang Yoo-sik bounced his fingers as if he had expected it.
Kim Jin-hyuk continued to use accelerated avoidance to avoid it narrowly, but he can’t stop his posture broken.
And Kang Yoo-sik dug into the gap.
The epilepsy bounced off with the tip of a foot pressing the ground, and soon a footstep of Kang Yoo-sik stretched out like lightning.
The Spear-thunder-pace, which was collected from Kim Jin-hyuk, immediately narrowed the distance, and Kang Yoo-sik swung the sword without hesitation.
Kim Jin-hyuk’s body was hardened by the pain of cutting his chest diagonally, and in the meantime, the sword was quickly pointed at his neck.
Persistent dodge and a flawless attack. Kim Jin-hyuk, who saw the scene, raised his hands powerlessly.
At the declaration of surrender, Kang smiled and collected the sword.
“You fell down until yesterday, but you’re avoiding everything today.”
“I have an accelerated avoidance skill and foresight skill, so I should do it. When I can attack…….”
Kang Yoo-sik tapped Kim Jin-hyuk on the shoulder as he was disappointed.
“Don’t worry, I’ll take it back if you do a few more here.”
“Thanks for your saying.”
Kang Yoo-sik had a strange look on his face at the smiling Kim Jin-hyuk because although comforting, half of them were sincere!
‘Who will not call you Kumkang Shingum. A crazy nut…….’
Kang’s stats are higher and the experience is more superior to his. But after four days, Kim had already narrowed the distance and started to attack.
Kang Yoo-sik, who knows what kind of person Kim Jin-hyuk is before his return, thought of the word ‘Kim Jin-hyuk as expected’ rather than unbelievable.
‘If you lose your Kumkang Seonggol skill, you still have the potential skill of Sword Soul.’
If Kim had the Kumkang Seonggol skill a while ago, it would have been difficult for Kang to dodge Kim, who might ignore the ignition magic and else.
‘You do need a few more skills.’
When Kang Yoo-sik was thinking about which type to collect. Kim Jin-hyuk, who was breathing for a while, asked carefully.
“But the letter, wasn’t it really a big deal?”
Kang Yoo-sik shook his hand when he realized Kim was talking about Ban Kyeong-hoon’s letter.
“I just made some appointments for the weekend. You don’t have to mind.”
After that day, Kim Jin-hyuk asked no more questions, even though it was not unusual at all.
Seeing that Kang Yoo-sik didn’t say anything, it seemed like there was a reason for that, and it seemed like Kim really had to do it because Kang told that Kim didn’t have to pay attention to it.
‘Well…… it’s not a problem to Yoo-sik.’
Since Kim had known Yoo-sik for a while, Kang would talk without hesitation when he really needs help.
Kim Jin-hyuk, who arranged his thoughts like that, shook off his lingering feelings, and Kang Yoo-sik looked satisfied with the appearance.
‘It was really good to catch you last time.’
Kim was more confident than last time, and he had come to listen to what Kang was saying with a good sense. Kang Yoo-sik recalled the past three days when he confirmed that the leader skill was growing Kim Jin-hyuk’s personality healthily.
‘Isn’t this a bad preparation?’
Only practice left. Kang Yoo-sik smiled deeply at the scene of the revenge match tomorrow.
Club Black Snake.
Inside the club run by the Black Snake Guild. In the VVIP room, a young man sipped the liquor and turned over the chart.
“Three days of taking class hard and sparring. A diligent guy.”
Ban Ki-chan, a young man with snake-like eyes, twisted the corners of his mouth when he saw a picture of Kang Yoo-sik on the chart.
A blatant sneer. Ban Kyeong-hoon, sitting opposite him, carefully watched his brother’s face.
“He seems pretty strong…will it be all right?”
“……do you think I’m going to lose to this bastard now?”
Ban Kyeong-hoon’s complexion turned pale as Ban Ki-chan glared at him with a cold look and shook his hand urgently.
“Oh, no, that’s not it..….”
“I could lose.”
Ban Ki-chan looked at Ban Kyeong-hoon, who was embarrassed, with a pathetic look on his face.
“Namgoong Ryun’s eyes are on, and Lee Chang-wan’s only student. Even if I’m at the top of the Gold Class, I could lose if he had one hidden move.”
Those who saw Ban Ki-chan’s nervous personality thought he was a simple ignorant person, but in reality, he was the opposite.
Rough but not belittling his opponent and preparing for the worst. A cunning, careful man, like a black snake tattoo on his neck.
That is exactly what Ban Ki-chan really is.
“You’re not going to fight yourself, then?”
“Am I crazy? Midterms are just around the corner, so what if I get hurt? I fight in places like this.”
“I’ve called a guy to be a fight of B-level. This is supposed to be done by a man with a heavy mouth and a good skill, so I can wash my hands comfortably.”
Ban Ki-chan looked at Ban Kyeong-hoon, who seemed to understand only then as if he looked pathetic.
He asked his brother to send Kang a challenge letter, but he didn’t know that he was going to fight innocently.
Although he was a brother of blood, he was really a half-hearted person.
‘I don’t want him to be a vice guild leader. Hmm…….’
When Ban Ki-chan is tilting his glass, thinking about how to clean up after taking over the guild leader.
As the door opened, a guild member, who took charge of the club’s management, bowed his head 90 degrees and opened his mouth.
“The one you spoke of has come.”
“Is he here alone?”
“Yes. And there seemed to be no unusual equipment.”
“Ah. Innocent bastard. Really.”
Ban Ki-chan, who burst into laughter, rose from his seat, putting down the glass in his hand.
“Take him to the sparring place with respect.”
And he smiled cold enough to feel cold.
