“That’s enough about the introduction, and if you want to talk to this guy separately, do it next time. Dismissed.”
Speaking briefly, Namgoong Ryun dragged Kang Yoo-sik out of the general lecture room as if he had nothing more to say.
Kang Yoo-sik, who left without saying a word, looked at Namgoong Ryun with a ridiculous expression.
“No, we have to say hello to each other. What the…….”
“The first day is always like this because there’s a lot of things to be done, and…….”
Namgoong Ryun, who was walking in the hallway, glanced behind him and talked calmly.．
“Don’t try to hang out with them for networking; they’ll be indifferent, and one is a real nut.”
“You’ll know soon enough. He will have a seizure with a bloody personality. So stick with me as much as you can or stay away from him.”
Seeing Namgoong Ryun talking in disgust, Kang Yoo-sik could easily predict who the crazy person would be.
‘Hwang Hwi-chan, I guess it’s him.’
The youngest grandson of Hwangyoung Group, which was one of the world’s top 10 business. Maybe because he had been born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he was just a yahoo without any right personality.
The crazy guy, Namgoong Ryun just mentioned, would probably be Hwang Hwi-chan.
‘Hmm. Hwang Hwi-chan……’
Kang thought he would visit Hwang someday, but he never imagined he would see that guy here. When Kang Yoo-sik was lost in thought.
Kang Yoo-sik, awakened by Namgoong Ryun, looked ahead.
The place where the two people came in was called a “Coordination room,” with a large facility inside that looked like a massage chair.
“Wait a minute, I’ll be ready in a minute.”
Closing the door, Namgoong Ryun took the documents out of his desk and began to prepare, and Kang Yoo-sik, who had come to wait, looked at the facility again.
A strange yet familiar shape. Kang Yoo-sik, who looked closely at it, soon clapped his hands when he saw the model name written next to him.
“Oh, this. Mana precision analyzer, right? It’s made by Welton company.”
“……you know that?”
Namgoong Ryun, who was preparing the documents, looked at Kang with a look of surprise, as these instruments were hard to know unless they were working with it.
Kang Yoo-sik answered the question casually.
“It’s a company’s main product with a market share of more than 60 percent, and it’s weird not to know. It’s not a different area, it’s related to Hunter area.”
In reality, it was natural not to know.
However, Kang Yoo-sik was well aware of the fact that he had used various facilities to fill his lack of talent and to do investment before his return.
After seeing Kang Yoo-sik, Namgoong Ryun took back the documents without saying more, and soon after he coughed in vain, he talked carefully.
“Hmm! But the…… Do you know what other main products of Welton company are?”
“Mana extractor and injectors?”
“……you really know.”
Namgoong Ryun was mysterious and strangely lively. When Kang Yoo-sik saw the scene, he came up with interest and answered calmly.
“Brayon’s products are good, but I don’t like to have less precision in extraction or injection.”
“Well, that’s right. Brayon’s products are giveaway goods.”
“Looking at the mana mixer, I don’t think their technology capacity is going to be a bad match. If they invest in extractors and injectors, they could be competitive to Welton…….”
Kang Yoo-sik’s skillful response brought Namgoong Ryun to the story with lively eyes.
“That can’t be because the current CEO is unworthy. The main product, mana mixers, was developed during the former CEO…….”
Namgoong Ryun continued to tell stories, and Kang Yoo-sik, who accepted the conversation, was convinced.
‘This guy sounds like technical matters.’
He had no one to talk about it, so his mouth was itchy to talk more.
Kang Yoo-sik, who finally found a touchpoint with Namgoong Ryun, made a pleasant surprise inside, and intentionally cut off the conversation that had been going on for later.
“By the way, aren’t we going to have a test?”
“Ah……hmm! Wait a minute.”
Only then did Namgoong Ryun realize that he was too excited, turned his head, quickly finished preparing the document, and walked to Kang.
As Kang Yoo-sik sat on the analyzer, the chair was adjusted for his body, and Namgoong Ryun clicked the machine’s panel.
“The mana will permeate to you, so don’t resist and stay still.”
At the same time as the answer, a small amount of mana permeated to Kang’s spine and soon began to make a path and move around his body.
When something showed on the machine, Namgoong Ryun wrote it down on the document with a serious look and kept recording, working on the adjustments over and over again.
About half an hour later, Namgoong Ryun, who recorded all 30 papers, turned off the analyzer.
“This is it for today. The promised 10 million won will be transferred to your student account…….”
Namgoong Ryun, who was talking, paused for a moment and replied, glancing at Kang Yoo-sik.．
“I’ll pay you in cash. I’ll feel uncomfortable if I pay you through your account, your tuition exemption might be canceled.”
“With just one glance, you can understand what I am thinking.”
“Shut up. I think the exact results will come out in two days, and I’ll prepare your class equipment after that. It’ll probably take about four days for the class to start properly.．”
“I can wait for 4 days easily.”
Namgoong Ryun, who would become the most prestigious educational authority in the future, was teaching Kang by fitting his facilities and applying his skill, the leadership.
Kang could wait a month, not four days.
“Then it’s over today, so go back right away. Don’t let the other guys catch you.”
Perhaps thanks to the previous conversation, Kang smiled a little bit as if Namgoong had gotten a little kinder.
“I’ll go away soon, so don’t worry.”
“I didn’t worry.”
“You just did…….”
“Get out, man. Get out!”
Namgoong Ryun, who screamed, drove Kang out of the coordination room, and Kang Yoo-sik laughed as he stared at the closed door.
‘Shall I ask him to join a technology fair next time.’
He would follow Kang’s request pretending he disliked it. Kang Yoo-sik, who decided to look for a good place, came down by an elevator.
He made eye contact with accountant Yoon Hee-jin, an employee at the desk, and he just nodded.
Yoon Hee-jin, who was embarrassed by the unexpected greeting, hurriedly bowed her head, and Kang Yoo-sik, who came out to receive the greeting, recalled her appearance.
‘It turns out that the accountant who works at the reception desk is the daughter of the head of the academy. What a nasty hobby.’
Nowadays, it did not make any sense to let the heir start from the bottom. But considering Yoon Hee-jin in the future, it might not be nonsense at all.
‘It wouldn’t be bad to be friends anyway.’
Trying wouldn’t hurt though such greetings would change anything.
Thinking so, Kang Yoo-sik stepped onto the side road of the bushes to get to the main building of the Silver Class quickly.
A woman greeted Kang Yoo-sik, as if she had been waiting.
A calm hairstyle with black hair that came down to her shoulder and braided on the left side of the hair behind the ears.
Her appearance of dryness was very mature, while her clothes were just like Kang Yoo-sik’s.
Instead, the gray epaulet of sophomore and the pentagon brooch on her chest was subtly shiny, proving to be a student of the diamond class.
‘I didn’t expect you to come right away……’
A familiar face woman whom he had seen just before. Kang Yoo-sik calmly opened his mouth to her intrusion.
“You’re the senior I met in the general lecture room.”
“My name is Cha Si-hyun.”
She bowed lightly with a slight nod. Kang Yoo-sik looked at her hand naturally.
Black gloves on her both hands. Kang Yoo-sik, who confirmed that she was not here to fight, asked with a look of relief and still nervousness.
“What’s so important that you’ve blocked the way of your junior?”
“I didn’t come here to harm you.”
Speaking in a calm voice, Cha took a big step back, raising her hands, as if to show that she had no hostility.
But seeing that, Kang Yoo-sik stepped back two more steps at the same time.
Cha looked at Kang Yoo-sik, who was further away with a slightly startled look at the non-hesitating move.
The range that was about a step away was completely off the mark of two steps away.
‘Did you get it?’
Unless he knew about herself, hse could only say that he noticed the safe distance, and it was impossible at the level of Silver class.
‘You had the potential to make it to Group 1.’
Cha, who upgraded her assessment of Kang, bowed her head with her back down.
“I didn’t mean to threaten you. I’m sorry.”
At the polite apology, Kang asked, removing the wary of what had been revealed too much.
“So what brought you here?”
Kang Yoo-sik already knew what the purpose of Cha’s visit was.
There’s only one reason she can come to visit him now without any contacts.
“I’m here to tell you that Master Hwang Hwi-chan wants to meet Mr. Kang Yoo-sik personally.”
Because it was only to deliver the message of her master, Hwang Hwi-chan.
‘It’s been a long time…….’
Kang never thought he would see Cha Si-hyun like this again.
Kang Yoo-sik shook his head as he watched her bitter smile.
“I’m sorry, but I have a special class next time, and I think I’ll have to work hard on training for a while. I don’t think I’ll be able to meet him.”
At Kang Yoo-sik’s firm refusal, Cha answered calmly.
It would have been better if she had even made a promise, but this was enough because it was her master’s main order to find out if Kang was useful. Cha, who judged that she no longer had to work hard, bowed her head.
“Then I’ll pass it on to the master. Take care.”
Cha turned around and moved on, and Kang Yoo-sik quit thinking about calling her because now it was only a hassle to make a hasty connection.
While thinking so, Cha Si-hyun disappeared, and Kang Yoo-sik, who recalled her back, murmured.
‘Was it 12 years ago…….’
In those days when he had yet to pay off his debts before his return, Kang Yoo-sik worked hard to make money.
Some of them were not very moral requests, and Kang Yoo-sik solved them as neatly as possible so that they wouldn’t catch up with him even later.
As a result, he unintentionally made his name known in that area, but Cha Si-hyun had come to see him at that time like today.
‘Come to think of it, the reasons were similar.’
Cha Si-hyun came to ask him to solve a problem under the order of Hwang Hwi-chan, and Kang Yoo-sik solved it as neatly as usual.
As a result, Hwang Hwi-chan’s trust led him to take charge of all kinds of dirty things and solve them, which he didn’t her very badly.
He paid back half of his debt, which almost ruined his life, with the commission.
‘And then…… She betrayed?’
Without any sign, one day suddenly Cha Si-hyun attacked Hwang Hwi-chan and cripple his legs.
However, she could not kill him and Hwang Hwi-chan offered a huge reward on her neck.
The money left to pay off the remaining half of his debt. Kang Yoo-sik moved right away for that huge money.
Kang had killed Cha Si-hyun.
Unintentionally recalling memories of the past, Kang Yoo-sik looked down at his hands, and for a moment was lost in thought.
‘What’s wrong with it?’
And simply shook off those ponderous thoughts.
In the past, every time it started like this, he would have sat there with a serious look for minutes.
But it was different now. Kang Yoo-sik thought it became nothing because he had already returned to the time of 28 years ago.
‘I don’t have to be depressed about something that would not happen.’
What’s important now was that Hwang Hwi-chan has shown interest in him and that if he solved this situation well, he could make huge debts to Cha Si-hyun!
Kang Yoo-sik pondered how to solve these problems.
‘How about currying favor with her as I used to be……. Shit.’
Is it because he became more confident than before, or because he had experience with Hwang Hwi-chan before the return?
Either way, he didn’t want to please Hwang.
‘Then I should smash him, but I don’t think it’s going to be easy.’
Although Hwang was a student of the diamond class, it was difficult to handle him like Ban Ki-hoon because Hwang had the support of Hwang Young Group.
‘Well, dealing with Hwang Young Group is the only way?’
It was impossible to break down Hwang Young Group with his current level, but if it was just troubling, there must be a way.
Normally, a janitor, who cleaned the house, knew the vulnerable point better than the owner.
Kang Yoo-sik smiled slightly when he recalled a lot of things he had handled in the past.
“I need to do something this weekend…….”
