Chapter 22

A private training room on the second floor of the fitness center. 

This facility was designed to train the skills to the fullest without paying attention to other people’s eyes. Usually, most students visited the facility alone.

However, there were times when teachers visited together to teach students, specialized classes. 

Whoo-woo-ooh! 

Kang Yoo-sik and Lee Chang-wan were just in that case.

“…….”

On the hands of Kang Yoo-sik, the Ghost Fire Spear was made in orange light, and Lee Chang-wan, who saw it, looked blank. 

Lee Chang-wan was surprised at Kang’s seize and compress skills. Kang Yoo-sik felt awkward at Lee Chang-wan who had already half moved. 

“Uh… um… Master?”

“Wait, wait a minute. Let me think alone for a moment.” 

Lee Chang-wan pressed his forehead firmly and fell into thought, and looked back at the Ghost Fire Spear skill when he felt somewhat calmed down. 

“Whew…….”

Then again, pressing hard on the middle of the forehead, Lee had been thinking for 15 minutes. Lee Chang-wan looked at Kang Yoo-sik, sighing. 

“That spear. Is it learned by the skill?” 

While Lee Chang-wan was lost in thought, Kang Yoo-sik, who had decided how to respond, immediately nodded. 

“Yes. It is the Ghost Fire Spear skill and B-level.”

” Ghost Fire Spear……Haha. Hmm…….” 

A murmur of joy and jealousy. Lee Chang-wan, who had a bitter look on his face, spoke quietly while looking at the skill again.

“Look carefully.”

Lee Chang-wan, who spoke briefly, immediately unfolded his palm, and mana was arranged over it and turned into flames. 

Whoo! 

The seized flame turned into a circular sphere and soon compressed its size and began to orbit. It was rotating around Lee Chang-wan like a satellite.

Ghost Fire Jade, Lee Chang-wan’s vision magic and original magic of Ghost Fire Spear. Kang Yoo-sik was still looking up at the flame. 

” Ghost Fire Jade is not a skill.” 

Lee Chang-wan suddenly confessed his secret.

“…….”

Kang Yoo-sik looked surprised when he heard the story. 

The fact that Ghost Fire Jade was not a skill itself had already known because it was revealed by Lee Chang-wan himself before his return. 

But it was a little different from now because Lee Chang-wan told the secret after he had mastered Ghost Fire Jade as his skills and became an A-class hunter.

 ‘You tell me what you haven’t told your family?’

What on earth did he think when he saw the Ghost Fire Spear? When Kang Yoo-sik looked at it strangely, Lee Chang-wan calmly continued his story. 

“I think it’s done as a technique, but somehow it’s not recognized as a skill.” 

Be recognized as a skill.

The fact that one’s skill was acquired meant that the skill was complete.. 

That’s why all hunters who trained their skills aimed it to be recognized as skills, but Lee Chang- 

“So I thought the cause was on me. The Ghost Fire Jade itself was already complete, but I have a problem with myself and cannot acquire it.” 

So, to prove that, he found a person to pass down his vision magic, the Ghost Fire Jade.

That’s why Lee Chang-wan had been looking for a successor so far. 

“By the way……you’ve perfected the art from Ghost Fire Jade, even though you haven’t even learned it properly.” 

“Is it wrong?” 

Are you going to say that you won’t teach me the Ghost Fire Jade because I’ve acquired a similar skill, Ghost Fire Spear? Lee Chang-wan shook his head as Kang Yoo-sik looked anxious. 

 “It can’t have been wrong. It’s rather good.”

Lee Chang-wan, who removed the Ghost Fire Jade that rose into the air, looked at Kang Yoo-sik. 

“I’d like to ask you one question. Can you answer me honestly?” 

“……yes.” 

“When you completed the Ghost Fire Spear……No when you realize you can complete it. Tell me what you thought.”

When asked by Lee Chang-wan, Kang Yoo-sik noticed what his intention was. 

‘Are you trying to learn something from me?’ 

It’s not uncommon, but there were cases when hunters learned skills by chatting.

It seemed that these two skills were quite similar to each other, which was troublesome for Kang Yoo-sik to tell the truth.

‘Honestly, I don’t know either…….’ 

Kang was in better shape than before returning, and he thought he could finish something, so he just tried it on the spot and made it.

The realization that Lee Chang-wan hoped to hear from Kang was not felt at all. 

‘But I can’t just miss this opportunity…….’ 

If I take advantage of this opportunity, I can also make a big debt to Lee Chang-wan. 

Kang Yoo-sik desperately thought about whether there was something he could do, and soon after, Lee Chang-wan’s past story popped up in his mind.

Then he mixed up the knowledge he knew and then opened his mouth. 

“I just looked at it.” 

“…… looking at it?”

Asked by curious Lee Chang-wan, Kang Yoo-sik nodded. 

“When I first made this spear, it was terrible. I didn’t think it was proper magic, not even a skill, and I honestly thought it was a failure.” 

When Kang showed it to Lee Chang-wan before his return, Lee told it was terrible. Even it was so terrible that Lee told him that he did not want to see it again. 

“But I didn’t run away, but I looked at it. This is the only weapon I’m allowed to use, and there’s no other option. I forced myself to think so, that’s all.”

“…….”

“What it takes to complete something is not an accidental realization, but perseverance to lead it to complete naturally. That’s what I think.”

Kang forced him to hold onto something he couldn’t do and desperately practiced it to master. It was about talented people.

However, Kang Yoo-sik didn’t agree with it at all. 

“It’s not accidental enlightenment…….”

The future Lee Chang-wan who would tell this story and the current Lee Chang-wan who was listening to this story was also full of talent.

 “I see. Was it something like that?…… My behavior of looking for a successor to prove my Ghost Fire Jade skill…….”

Lee Chang-wan mumbled blankly, and Kang Yoo-sik looked strange when he saw it. 

These words were often talked by future Lee Chang-wan when he criticized himself about his past after mastering Ghost Fire Jade and becoming an A-class hunter. 

To be honest, Kang thought he was just so embarrassed and blamed himself for it, but Kang never thought Lee had realized something by listening to it. 

‘Is there something only he can know?’

Feeling strange, Kang Yoo-sik waited until Lee organized his thoughts, and a moment later Lee Chang-wan looked at Kang with clear eyes. 

“I owe you so much.” 

A refreshing voice. Kang Yoo-sik asked, expecting an unusual response.

“You’re making some progress?” 

“Not yet, but I think I know what to in the future.” 

Lee Chang-wan, with a gentle expression on his face, patted Kang Yoo-sik’s shoulder. 

“When I can teach you truly, I’ll see you then.”

“……yes?” 

“Stay on your best, I’ll be rooting for you!” 

Then, Lee Chang-wan went out of the private training room, and a notification window appeared in front of Kang Yoo-sik.

 

[The condition of debt relationship is satisfied.] 

[The registration of the debtor ‘Lee Chang-wan’ is confirmed and the debt rating is determined as level B.]

 

“……was it good?” 

Something went wrong, but if the debt grade of Lee was level B, it was not a loss because he made a proper debt. 

Kang Yoo-sik was nervous and came out of the private training room. 

“……what.”

Lee Chang-wan, who submitted a letter of resignation the next day, returned to active duty.

 

***

 

“…….”

On the bed, Kang Yoo-sik looked down at the book in his hand.

The title of the book was ‘Everything About Ghost Fire Jade,’ which was created overnight by Lee Chang-wan, literally a reference book detailing how to deal with Ghost Fire Jade. 

Kang Yoo-sik, who was given the essence of the Ghost Fire Jade he had wanted so much, looked strange.

‘I never thought you just gave me this and walk away.’

It was natural.

The reason why Lee Chang-wan had entered the Sungjin Military Academy was to find a successor and obtain clues to complete the natural fire.

But since he got it from Kang, he did not have to stay in the school where he had to waste his time for class. 

‘You’re hot as ever.’ 

Smiling Kang Yoo-sik put the reference book in his space extension pocket and went out of the room.

“Good morning!” 

As he came out, Kim Jin-hyuk, who was waiting, greeted him with a smile, and Kang Yoo-sik tapped his shoulder. 

“Why didn’t you knock on the door when you came? I’m sorry.”

“You’re probably getting ready for something, but you don’t have to rush it. You don’t have to worry about it.” 

How could Kim be so considerate of these little things? He was different from the vicious Kumkang Shingum kept hitting the same place. 

Kang Yoo-sik smiled satisfyingly at Kim Jin-hyuk’s appearance, who had been raised very well. 

“Hey……you must be hungry, so let’s go eat.”

“Yes!” 

Kang Yoo-sik and Kim Jin-hyuk walked straight to the restaurant, and as always, the eyes stayed on them…….

“Kang Yoo-sik. Are you available for a moment? I have something to talk with you…….”

“Do you have an appointment for lunch? If you don’t have, shall we hang out…….”

“Kang Yoo-sik! Are you free on the weekend? I’ll treat you outside on a full course…….” 

No, people were starting to gather.

There were about 20 students, all of whom were in the Gold Class, although the school year varied. 

All of them were children whose families ran guilds, or whose parents were senior officials. All of them were already members of the hunter society. 

‘It’s only been a day, and it’s so fast.’ 

Rumors spread faster in the Sungjin Military Academy than any other place. 

Kang Yoo-sik looked relaxed when he saw people rushing in fear of losing him, and Kim Jin-hyuk, standing next to him, didn’t know what to do.

“Mr. Kim Jin-hyuk?” 

“Yes, yes!? Me?”

“I’d like to talk to you for a moment, but I was wondering if you could spare me some time…….”

Normally, Kang Yoo-sik would have attracted all the attention, but this time, Kim Jin-hyuk came into the spotlight after rumors spread that he slaughtered War Wolves and endured 30 seconds against the Blood Wolf.

‘It’s time for him to raise his value, too.’

On the contrary, it was a bit late because he was by Kang.

However, once it had been talked about, it would naturally draw attention from now on, and as his performance was known, his value would gradually increase.

‘Well, that’s a later pleasure……. First of all, what should we do with these guys.’

Kang saw some of those rushing now two days ago, but there were more new people. 

They had hesitated due to Hwang Hwi-chan, but these people had courage. 

‘Any big fish?’

Rather than just refusing, it was better to have a big fish come to him so that he could step down.

Kang Yoo-sik was dragging on with a reasonable answer while looking forward to any unexpected appearance. 

When Kang Yoo-sik was dragging his feet with a moderate answer to expect such an unexpected appearance.

“Kang Yoo-sik—!!”

A resonant shout like thunder.

At the tremendous sound, everyone’s attention was directed to the place where the sound was heard, and the faces of some people around Kang Yoo-sik hardened. 

He was about 165 centimeters tall, and he looked young compared to students. He was still standing, but he looked glamourous and rude from his eyes and lips.

“Huh…….”

Unexpectedly, Lee Byung-ho, the eldest son of the eldest son of the Changeun Guild family, appeared again.
