After lunchtime, students were scattered all over the school for specialized classes, clubs, and personal training they had applied for.
It was a time when both teachers and students were active regardless of their class and at the same time busy while moving around the school.
And Kang Yoo-sik was also busy walking in the Gold Class main building.
“Why is a Silver class student coming up here?”
“Did he get lost? What a weirdo.”
The students of the Gold Class who saw Kang Yoo-sik looked at him curiously.
Students in lower classes often went to the main building of the upper classes because of specialized classes or clubs, but in general, such cases were divided into specific floors.
For example, the main Gold Class building had four floors in total, and up to the second floor, there was also a place assigned to Silver Class students, but from the third floor, it was assigned only for Gold Class and above.
That’s why, Kang Yoo-sik, a silver class student, walking in the four-story corridor of Gold Class, would never be the case unless something special happened.
‘Well, I can walk, you know, fastidious guys.’
Kang Yoo-sik, who ignored the wandering eyes around him, diligently moved on, and soon stopped at the door on which the nameplate Namgoong Ryun was hung.
In response to the knocks, Kang immediately opened the door and entered Namgoong Ryun’s lab.
It was four times the size of Lee Chang-wan’s lab and all the facilities looked more expensive. The interior of the lab, where various documents and books were piled up like a tower, was a perfect match for the phrase “expensive pigsty.”
“……Are you Kang Yoo-sik?”
And in the pigsty, the man reading the document looked at Kang Yoo-sik.
Blank eyes with dark circles and hair stretched out here and there. Wearing a white gown, gray knit T-shirt, and faded jeans. He was absolutely a confirmed invalid.
“Yes. Nice to meet you. Teacher Namgoong Ryun.”
And he was Namgoong Ryun, the most popular teacher at Sungjin Military Academy.
In Namgoong Ryun’s indifferent story, Kang Yoo-sik sat on a chair with a pile of documents.
As if Kang behaved as if it were his own bedroom, while Namgoong Ryun looked at the strange thing and laid down the documents in his hands.
“Is it true that you can persuade Kim Jin-hyuk?”
And he went straight to the point without beating around the bush.
Kang Yoo-sik replied with a smile as Namgoong seemed to not be interested in Kang at all.
“Because Kim is scared, not uninterested. It’s not that difficult.”
“It’s not difficult…….”
With a low murmur, Namgoong Ryun looked at Kang Yoo-sik.
His mouth was smiling, but his eyes were not smiling, and his eyes were full of greed.
At the sight of him as if he were a cub, Namgoong Ryun had an unpleasant look on his face.
‘He’s a classic con artist.’
When Namgoong just started his career in America, he noticed the eyes of the agents of the large guild who were trying to recognize his abilities and bargain conditions.
Seeing it from Kang Yoo-sik, Namgoong Ryun asked with a suspicious look, “How is it possible?”
“JIN HYUK and I are best friends…….”
“Don’t say nonsense and say it right,” Kang replied, kicking his tongue in as Namgoong was hard to please.
“He owes me. It’s not about money. He feels sorry because he owes me a lot….…”
“Oh, the case where he stabbed your lungs during a mock hunt?”
“Yes, that’s it.”
Kang Yoo-sik continued speaking to Namgoong Ryun who seemed to understand.
“So if I persuade him, he’ll accept your offer. He has been talking to me first, and it means he is asking me to back him up.”
In short, Namgoong Ryun looked into Kang’s eyes.
“So what do you want from me? It’s class time soon, so don’t beat around the bush and tell me straight.”
“First of all, please let me take your special class too.”
Namgoong Ryun’s specialized classes were quite advantageous compared to other classes.
Apart from the scholarship, he could receive subsidies and supplies as much as Namgoong paid, and if the value is converted into money, it will be at least 100 million won!
While it is usually difficult to provide such support at the discretion of teachers, it was an exception for this Namgoong Ryun.
This is because most of the students who took his specialized classes were worth it enough to be promoted to diamond!
Under Kang Yoo-sik’s condition, Namgoong Rryun glanced up and down and looked on with cold eyes.
“You have the skills to strengthen your body, but I think you are at level E or F, and both martial arts and magic are good, but they’re both normal. No matter how hard you try, Silver Class is your limit.”
Namgoong Ryun, who saw through Kang’s potential with a simple glance, looked with cold eyes.
“I have over 100 students in charge and everyone is an elite with the potential to reach the diamond class. But is there any reason to teach you over them?”
“You don’t know until you try.”
“I don’t need such a common saying. Anyway, I don’t have time to waste on a guy like you. Give up.”
Abnormal devotion to those with potential; utter disregard for those who do not. This was the man named Namgoong Ryun and his essence remained unchanged in the future and now.
“Then Jin-hyuk won’t go either.”
Therefore, Kang Yoo-sik took Kim as a hostage without hesitation.
“Are you using Kim Jin-hyuk now?”
Kang Yoo-sik had a soft look at Namgoong Ryun’s slightly frowning face.
“It’s not for use, it’s for mutual assistance. What’s wrong with me and Jin-hyuk being able to take your special class as much as you want?”
Kang Yoo-sik talked about the next condition without hesitation about the appearance of Namgoong Ryun who looked at him with disgusted eyes.
“Please treat me the same as Jin-hyuk with the time of teaching, the amount of money and goods that you support.”
And the skills that are kept secret from others.
Kang Yoo-sik, who reminded the skill that would increase Lee Chang-wan’s teaching effect as well as the rapid growth of the Kumkang Seonggol skill, he smiled slightly. Namgoong Ryun looked indifferent.
“Is that all?”
“What, first of all? Jin-hyuk will get the best treatment. I’d be grateful if I received the same thing.”
Kim Jin-hyuk, an expecting student, was expected to be treated by looking at Namgoong Ryun’s response. In terms of value, it was worth more than 200 million won!
There was no such gain considering that Kang would not be able to receive 10 won worth of support, let alone 100 million won. It would be such a great benefit.
“That’s all. ….”
A small mutter to Kang Yoo-sik’s smiling face, Namgoong Ryun murmured in a cold voice.
“You don’t even know the subject.”
Revealing his disgust for Kang Yoo-sik, Namgoong Ryun took out a ballpoint pen stuck in the pocket of his gown.
And when he pressed the button on the side, Kang Yoo-sik’s conversation from a little while ago began to repeat again a little while.
“Will Kim Jin-hyuk still be able to hear this?”
Namgoong Ryun went through similar situations many times, so he knew exactly how to deal with them.
‘I’m sick and tired of looking at that kind of shit.’
Any field is limited by natural talent and there is no way to overcome it.
Thus, Namgoong Ryun never taught a man without talent, and so did Kang Yoo-sik, who was in front of him.
“If you understand, get the hell out of here. Just looking at you is disgusting.”
At the sight of Namgoong Ryun, who proudly gave a kick out order, Kang Yoo-sik looked at him quietly and he soon answered with the tip of his mouth raised.
“It’s going to work out the way I think it is.”
Kang Yoo-sik replied in a sly voice to the grimace of Namgoong Ryun.
“I told Jin-hyuk everything before I came here. I’ll go with him, so don’t talk nonsense and take the class. I’ll persuade you.”
“That’s such a ridiculous lie…….”
“Check it out by yourself. You can try it on the phone.”
Namgoong Ryun, who stared at Kang Yoo-sik, immediately called Kim Jin-hyuk and informed him as if he were reporting the previous conversation.
-Teacher. Please think again.
And the reply completely shattered Namgoong Ryun’s expectations.
-He may not be enough for you to see, but it was also Yoo-sik who recognized and supported my talent first. I’m sure he will do just as well as everyone else.
“But, but he is using you…….”
-He didn’t use me. I thought it would be better to take a class with someone I know than to take a class alone……. That’s why I asked Yoo-sik.
Of course, it was guided, but it wasn’t so wrong to say that two were better than alone anyway.
Some say that sharing joy doubles, and sharing pain halves.
‘We received the same amount of money, so we shared the salt. There’s nothing wrong with the old saying.’
Kang Yoo-sik waited for the call to end with a relaxed smile, and Namgoong Ryun had to continue to listen to Kim Jin-hyuk’s request over the phone.
The phone was hung up, leaving a request until the last minute, and Namgoong Ryun had an incredible expression on his face.
“What the hell…… is going on…….”
Kim was not being threatened, but he was allowing Namgoon to negotiate with Kang on the pretext of himself.
He never understood who didn’t know Kang’s creditor skill, which was Kang Yoo-sik’s own skill.
“JIN HYUK owes me so much~”
Namgoong Ryun’s eyes trembled at the sight of Kang Yoo-sik smiling, and he chewed his lips.
He couldn’t believe it was hard to teach a genius, but he had to teach a normal guy with the same extra-large support, which he was going to give to Kim Jin-hyuk!
If it were in his mind, he wanted to throw away a pile of papers right away and kick Kang out, but Namgoong Ryun couldn’t.
‘Kim Jin-hyuk’s potential is real.’
Although his skill had not fully awakened yet, he would be one of the best fighters in the world, not only in Sungjin Military Academy.
How is it possible to ignore such a genius? It would never happen to Namgoong Ryun.
“……Do as you wish.”
There was only one option.
“You mean you accept me?”
“Don’t you know not to ask again?”
“It’s good to be sure of anything.”
Namgoong Ryun’s eyes trembled again at the sight of Kang Yoo-sik who took out the cell phone recording from the inside pocket of the student uniform and shook it and soon replied resignedly.
“I, Namgoong Ryun, will never discriminate against Kang Yoo-sik and Kim Jin-hyuk in support and education!”
At Namgoong Ryun’s nervous reply, Kang smiled and put his cell phone back in.
“I’ll try to learn hard with Jin-hyuk from now on, sir.”
As Kang Yoo-sik stood up from his seat leisurely, Namgoong Ryun relaxed and made a cold smile.
“How much can you do if you learn hard?”
“You’ve been evaluating me poorly since a long time ago, and I was quite active in the competition today.”
“I saw it too. That’s why I know you better.”
Namgoong Ryun looked at Kang Yoo-sik with cold eyes.
“I’m sure you took a big step forward today when you copied Mr. Lee Chang-wan’s ignition spell. It’s probably different from your previous slow growth.”
“But that one little progress you accidentally got, Kim Jin-hyuk gets every day. The path that leads you into a crisis is no obstacle to him.”
An ordinary human and a giant spanning thousands of meters. That was the difference between a genius and a common man, and at the same time, the difference between Kang Yoo-sik and Kim Jin-hyuk.
Kang Yoo-sik frowned at Namgoong Ryun’s story as he spoke with confidence.
“I can also make it if I try.”
“That’s what everyone says. But none of them were out of my evaluation.”
“What would you do if I proved that you were wrong?”
Namgoong Ryun laughed at Kang Yoo-sik’s anger and retorted, “Well, I don’t want to talk about what won’t happen at all, but…….”
Only when specific goals are set will the frustration grow later. Namgoong Ryun, who decided to make Kang realize the reality, brought up something he could never achieve.
“If you enter the Diamond class before you become a sophomore, I’ll do whatever you want.”
“Are you confident you won’t regret it?”
“Regret is only for shameful people. I don’t want to see you now, so get lost.”
At Namgoong Ryun’s order, Kang Yoo-sik turned around and went out of the door. Then he smiled again and bowed his head as if he had hardened his expression.
“I’ll see you at the next specialized class. Teacher Namgoong Ryun.”
The door of the lab was closed, and Kang Yoo-sik turned around and walked through the hallway. Still, he was a Silver Class not allowed here, but this time no one sent him any strange looks.
Rather, they looked as if they couldn’t believe Kang could take Namgoong Ryun’s special class, and Kang Yoo-sik took out the cell phone he had put in his inner pocket when they passed by.
The recording ended with Namgoong Ryun’s voice who accepted Kang’s proposal, and Kang Yoo-sik sent a text message to Kim Jin-hyuk saying, “Let’s have class together starting from tomorrow.”
Then, touching the black screen with his finger, he recalled the conversation a little while ago.
‘Diamond class within the first grade…….’
If it was the Diamond class, it was the highest level in Korea. And one of the best prospects in the academy meant that he was one of the most promising fighters in the world.
And such powerful people are the world of elites, such as Kim Jin-hyuk and the five who knocked him out in the past.
‘Well, there’s nothing I can’t do.’
The elite, after all, was enough to be killed by him before his returning when he had no talent? That was not impossible for him to reach.
He now had a life that had changed completely since his return. It was not that difficult with the strength of the reinforced creditor skill.
‘It’s a chance to put Namgoong Ryun under my control. I can’t be lazy.’
Kang Yoo-sik, who decided to exploit it a little more, moved on by inserting his cell phone.
[The debt of debtor ‘Kim Jin-hyuk will be increasing.]
[The debt level of debtor ‘Kim Jin Hyuk’ will be upgraded to Grade C. The collection list has been added.]
Kang Yoo-sik smiled at his own strength and the debts that were piling up smoothly.
