A middle-aged man was waiting for entrants of Sungjin Military Academy.  Nam Young-il, the leader of attack team 3 of Changeun Guild pointed to equipment and supplies arranged on one side.

“Choose any equipment and supplies for use in Dungeon over there. The weapons and shields are allowed up to two for backup. Only one type of defensive measure is available, and the consumables are up to five per type.” 

“Yes, sir. Let’s go, Jin-hyuk.” 

“Yes.”

Kang Yoo-sik and Kim Jin-hyuk, who were nodding their heads, moved to pick out equipment and supplies, and Nam Young-il, who was looking at the back, muttered lowly.

“Two.” 

Lee Soo-ah, the soft-looking woman standing next to Nam Young-il, nodded. 

“Only two.”

“From the Sungjin Military Academy, not anywhere else.” 

“That’s true. Sungjin…….” 

Nam Young-il and Lee Soo-ah murmured like that they could not believe it, and Lee Hyun-chang, who was listening to them, felt embarrassed.

Although this might happen due to the nature of the performance test, which aimed to catch people off guard, Lee didn’t think there would be only two entrants.

He thought, ‘Han should not have been that much…….’ 

If Kang Yoo-sik and Han Moo-jin had not talked about the hospitalization for three months, 60 to 70 students would have participated. 

When Lee Hyun-chang was shaking his eyes at the Attack Team 3 standing embarrassed. Nam Young-il turned his head and asked.

“Mr. Lee Hyun-chang, I have a question.”

“Oh, yes. Go ahead.” 

“How good are those two in Silver Class?” 

When asked by Nam Young-il, Lee Hyun-chang answered quickly, thinking he could save face. 

“Both of them would be promoted to Gold Class.”

“It’s only April, and it’s already confirmed……. I think they were from the top of the list?” 

“No, they were both at the bottom of the list at the time of admission.” 

At Lee Hyun-chang’s explanation, Nam Young-il and Lee Soo-ah opened their eyes wide. The two students who entered the bottom ranks grew to the gold class in one month and a half.

If that was true, it was simply a tremendous pace of growth. 

“And they’re both taking special classes of Namgoong Ryun.” 

“Huh. Disciples of teacher Namgoong Ryun…….” 

“They have been a great student.”

Only then did Nam Young-il and Lee Soo-ah, who realized what level the two were, admired, and Lee Hyun-chang could shrug his shoulders.

Kang Yoo-sik and Kim Jin-hyuk finished fitting the equipment and started picking out consumables.

“Since you’re not going to die anyway, take a low dose of therapy potion, and if there is poison, you’ll be told beforehand, so focus on physical strength and mana potion.” 

“Okay.” 

Kim Jin-hyuk began to pack the supplies as he was told, and Kang Yoo-sik looked at the small gate while looking at the supplies prepared.

A gate, about 5 meters tall and strewn with blue mana fog all over it. Considering the average ability of Silver Class, it was highly likely that they took an E-level dungeon. 

‘I’m sure it is…… However, it is not…….’ 

Kang Yoo-sik, who was looking at the mana fog around the gate, thought about it for a while and stopped choosing consumables and approached Nam Young-il.

“I’d like to ask you a question.” 

“Hmm? What?”

“Can I know in advance what this dungeon is like?” 

“That is…….”

Nam Young-il looked at Lee Hyun-chang asking whether it was okay, to tell the truth and told the story after he was allowed. 

“It is an F-class dungeon with the F-class monster War Wolf. The terrain is a four-meter-wide cave that stretches straight to the last boss’ room.” 

“It’s been a while since they were discovered?”

“Hmm? Well……it’s been a week. Dungeon brakes are often under the control, so it won’t be a problem.” 

“Hmm…….”

War Wolf, a wild beastly monster in a dungeon where the population had been controlled for a week. The flow of mana fog was used to it.

If three things, not one thing appeared, it could only be seen as confirmed. 

‘This is……not bad.’ 

When Kang Yoo-sik, which depicted the situation of Dungeon in his head, was trying to say, Nam Young-il, who was looking at it, realized something and asked. 

“Are you wondering if there’s a problem in the dungeon?”

“Oh. Yeah, well……. Just in case…….”

“Hahaha. That’s nothing to worry about. The situation inside the dungeon has been calculated by Lee Soo-ah here.” 

At Nam Young-il’s confident talk, Kang Yoo-sik looked at Lee Soo-ah next to him. 

She smiled awkwardly and looked confident. Kang Yoo-sik smiled at her face.

“Well, it’s not anywhere else, it’s Changeun guild, but I guess I overreacted, so…….”

With his head down, Kang Yoo-sik went back to the place where the supplies were, and talked to Kim Jin-hyuk, who had been agonizing for a while.

“Jin-hyuk, get some blue balls there.”

“Huh? What’s this? “

Kang Yoo-sik answered Kim Jin-hyuk’s question with a smile.

“Kinda promissory note.”

***

After completing all preparations, the two entered the guild with Lee Hyun-chang and the Attack Team 3 of the guild. 

Originally, the test was supposed to be conducted in groups of three, but only Kang Yoo-sik and Kim Jin-hyuk came, so everyone came in to just watch. 

“The test was to get through five battles and judge you, but as only you two participated, Han Moo-jin, the dean, changed the content.” 

“Change?”

When Kang Yoo-sik was curious about a story he had never heard, Lee Hyun-chang nodded. 

“Fight enough to fight, and if you can clear it, then you’ll get extra points by the authority of the dean.” 

Kang Yoo-sik opened his eyes wide to Lee Hyun-chang’s story, and soon he opened his mouth without realizing it.

Kang tried to be satisfied with the performance alone, but he could not believe Han was going to give him more grades. Kang thought he got quite a lot of points without even realizing it. 

‘I’m going to take it all again.’ 

Kang Yoo-sik, who organized his mind, turned around, and Lee Hyun-chang, who saw it, shouted in a small voice.

“Test begins!” 

Argh!

As soon as the attack began, Kang Yoo-sik bounced his finger, and a series of ignition popped up in the air and began to light up the surroundings. 

A flame that rose into the air like a chandelier by being woven together by mana. It is the application of ignition magic to secure the surrounding view at once. 

“Wow……that’s neat.”

“I’m not that either, but……” 

Twenty-five guild members whispered as if they were surprised to secure a clear and efficient view, and Lee Soo-ah, who was watching from the side, was also slightly impressed. 

‘His basics are as solid as he has been experienced for decades…….’

Usually, students at that age were so absorbed in their power that they usually swung recklessly, but they can’t believe he was using such sophisticated applications. 

Lee Soo-ah looked at Kang Yoo-sik with a curious look, and Kang Yoo-sik, who felt the gaze, looked satisfied. 

‘It’s a good start.’

It was obvious what was going to happen when he started fighting, and when Kang Yoo-sik’s mouth was about to slip up. 

“Huuu…….Huuu…….”

A harsh breath from the front.

Suddenly, Kang Yoo-sik looked ahead, wriggling his eyes, and Kim Jin-hyuk was seen breathing heavily. 

“It’s all right……. I can do it…… Whoo…….” 

Kim Jin-hyuk was constantly muttering and breathing hard.

It was the first battle since the last mock-up hunting. Since he joined the team as a member, he couldn’t shake off his nervousness even if he grew up a little bit. 

‘You son of a……’ 

Kang Yoo-sik looked at him with a cold look. 

Whoo!

He swung the sword at the back of Kim Jin-hyuk’s head. 

Kaang!

The sword was completely blocked by the sword blade, and Kim Jin-hyuk, who had unconsciously blocked the attack, looked perplexed.

Even Lee Hyun-chang and the attacking team 3 in the back were all surprised, and Kang Yoo-sik spoke in a cold voice.

“Get a hold of yourself, if you don’t want to die.” 

Somewhere else Kang might teach him nicely, but not in a dungeon. 

‘Those people would all be dead.’

Neither the senior who kindly cared for the recruits nor the rookies who were being cared for by was killed by the monster. 

Those who helped others, or borrowed their strength, were forced to grab each other’s ankles and they died in the dungeon. 

For Kang Yoo-sik, the dungeon was such a place, so he had no intention of letting it go in moderation. 

“Or just get out of here. Don’t just seize our ankle for nothing.”

“…….”

A cold look like a completely different person. It was a heart-breaking remark, but Kim Jin-hyuk looked into his eyes without saying a word.

A faint worry in the cold eyes. Kim Jin-hyuk, who read it, calmed his shaking eyes and picked his breath again. 

Then, with a calmer look, he answered facing each other.

“Sorry. I’ll concentrate.” 

The atmosphere was completely different from before. Kang Yoo-sik took off the sword because of the sharp expression that reminded him of Kumkang Shingum skill before his return. 

“Let’s get in.” 

At the end of the sentence, the two walked into the dungeon as if nothing happened to them, and Nam Young-il looked surprised when he saw them from behind.

‘Kang Yoo-sik……you know how to deal with people.’ 

Nam could not believe it was so simple to straighten Kim out.  It was even more amazing that Kim Jin-hyuk did a good job but Kang Yoo-sik pulled his talent out perfectly. 

Nam Young-il, who had been intrigued for a long time, opened his mouth as he looked at the two men who entered the dungeon without hesitation. 

“Let’s follow.”

With the right distance to intervene at any time in an emergency, the two and Attack team 3 went into the dungeon, and a moment later the monster appeared. 

Even standing on four feet, three giant wolves of thick gray fur, War Wolves, growled, showing their fangs. 

Grrrr…….”

The sharp eyes and low-pitched cries. The appearance of a murderous spirit was enough to daunt students with no practical experience. 

‘Three wolves.’ 

But Kang Yoo-sik, who had caught War Wolves many times before returning, looked familiar and talked calmly.

“I’ll hold them with the magic of ignition, so dash. I’ll back you what you cannot handle.”

Usually, it was a sensitive issue who took command inside the dungeon and especially in the case of parties equal with each other, rather than vertical relationships like guilds. 

So how to allocate command was also an important factor in the performance test. 

“Okay.” 

Kim Jin-hyuk accepted Kang Yoo-sik’s command without any hesitation.

Argh! 

“Huh?” 

The sudden spark stopped the War Wolves moving, and Kim Jin-hyuk stormed forward at the moment.

Bang!

Kim Jin-hyuk, who narrowed the distance at once, immediately swung the sword, looking at the War Wolves’ movement. 

Poohuaak! 

The head of the front War Wolf rose to the sky, followed by the chest of another wolf that was cut off. 

“Yelp!” 

And when the last wolf was about to attack Kim Jin-hyuk. 

Whoosh!

Kang Yoo-sik’s sword, which spread lightning and narrowed the distance, pierced its heart neatly. 

Bump!

Three wolves were scattered on the floor in less than 10 seconds. Attack team 3, who watched from behind, looked surprised. 

Since the two would be promoted to the Gold Class, they thought they could handle with the wolves, but they never imagined it would have been this simple. 

 “Do we take by-products?”

“Oh, huh? No. We’ll take it later, so just go.” 

“Okay, let’s go.” 

“Yes.”

The two men went inside the dungeon as if the battle was nothing to them, and every time War wolf appeared, the battle repeated.

“Yelp!” 

“Kaboom?!” 

They backed each other and actively attack, and when there were many wolves, they killed them by properly using the surrounding terrain and the consumables.

Nam Young-il could not believe that they were like skilled hunters, not a student taking a test.

‘How does he have that kind of leadership?’ 

Kim Jin-hyuk was superior in the numbers of wolves killed, but Nam Young-il would pick Kang Yoo-sik without hesitation when asked who was greater. 

Kang constantly checked the surrounding situation to limit the number of wolves attacking Kim Jin-hyuk, and complemented each other’s angle to prevent attacks from interlocking.

A perfect backup that seemed they had been working together for a long time. Thanks to Kang, Kim Jin-hyuk was also drawing out all his power without wasting anything.

‘They would clear the mission easily at this rate.’ 

The only boss wolf at the end of the dungeon was only 1.5 times as big as the average war wolf, so they would kill it more easily.

So everyone continued the journey in the dungeon, thinking of a safe end. 

“Suddenly the number has dropped dramatically.” 

Each time 5 War Wolves used to appear a while ago, suddenly did not show up. 

Kim Jin-hyuk looked curious about the sudden change, and Kang Yoo-sik’s lips went up slightly. 

“Well……there must be something inside.”

With a meaningful story, the two walked into the boss’s cave, walking through an empty passage. 

“Grrr…….” 

A giant wolf with dark red fur appeared, revealing its molars. 

“No way!”

Seeing the giant wolf, Blood Wolf, Lee Soo-ah shouted with an incredible look on her face. 

Blood Wolf’s rating was level C. It was never supposed to exist in this dungeon, and above all, it was not even seen in the search process before. 

‘The mana fog coming out of the gate was clear…….’

What on earth did she miss that could have happened? While Lee Soo-ah was in chaos, Lee Hyun-chang and Nam Young-il moved quickly. 

“Stop the test!” 

“All units ready for battle! We are going to destroy it at once!”

It was surprising that a C-level monster suddenly appeared, but Lee Hyun-chang was a B- level hunter, and seven out of 27 hunters, including Nam Young-il and Lee Soo-ah, were B- level hunters. 

Since they were able to fight against the A-level monster, they could easily defeat the Blood Wolf, a C-level. 

“Oh, that’s it.”

Kang Yoo-sik stood in their way.

Lee Hyun-chang and the Attack Team 3 trying to attack looked at Kang with strange faces. 

“That wolf is ours.” 

Kang Yoo-sik went ahead.
