Regressor Takes Everything - Chapter 60

Tao Pei’s eyes sparkled in the word of the match, and soon he smiled.
“I think you said right, but…… you’re betting on who wins in the end, aren’t you?
“Hmm. Can you even pay?”
“Wouldn’t it depend on how much you’re betting?”
Tao Pei smirked at Kang Yoo-sik’s answer and opened a finger.
“Let’s go with one.”
“What do you mean?”
“One S-class item.”
Everyone around him looked at Tao Pei’s word with a surprised look.
It is not easy to value any item that is rated S.
Even the lowest-priced consuming products and materials cost hundreds of billions of won, and weapons and skill books start at a minimum of trillion units.
In addition, if you think about the value, it is that much. In fact, there is no sale itself, so it goes up exponentially to get it.
‘But you bet it to a student.’
In that case, there are only two things Tao Pei is aiming for.
Either he’s going to owe him that much, or he’s going to take it from someone else.
‘Are you trying to rip off Ban Hye-young by adding a bet before? This old man is cunning.’
It is an old man that is so evil to calculate after pretending to be cool.
Kang Yoo-sik thought about it for a while and opened up two fingers as he looked confident.
“……what is that.”
“I’ll take two. One S-class item and one AA-class item.”
It is an item that is rated A but has more performance than A grade. They are called AA-class items, of course, less valuable than S-class items.
But you’re betting on the S-class items? Those who were surprised at Kang’s suggestion looked even more ridiculous.
‘Is he out of his mind?’
‘I think he’s just throwing it for fun.’
‘No, he can’t play such a prank on the leader of Tae-heo….’
Even those who were listening to the word from afar admired, and Tao Pei looked even more absurd.
‘What the hell is this bold guy…….’
Even with just one S-class item, the average Hunter is such a huge debt that he can’t pay back even if he works his whole life.
A-class hunter can pay back after years of hard work, but since he cannot work without pay for those years, he is bound for at least 10 years.
But he’s going to add AA-class items to that. Tao Pei looked suspicious at Kang Yoo-sik’s appearance.
‘Is there something I’m missing?’
However, according to his S-level skill, Golden Eyes, he seemed to be only a clever kid.
The only thing to pay attention to is that he seems to have many talents, not only in magic but also in martial arts, but they are all shallow in depth, so they are mediocre.
‘But if Ban Hye-young is so complimentary, it means there’s something…….’
Whether to accept it or not. When Tao Pei is thinking about it. Kang Yoo-sik peeked out and smiled.
“Well, if you feel uncomfortable, you can use one S-class item. That’s good enough.”
A provocation almost recognizable to all. The people around him looked troubled.
He was confused, but even with such blatant provocation, I couldn’t guess whether it was just he thrown to give him an embarrassment or if he was really confident.
When everyone looks confused by Kang Yoo-sik’s bet.
Tao Pei, who flashed his eyes, looked at Kang Yoo-sik.
“There is no reason not to bet on AA-class items. I’ll take it!”
“S-level and AA-level…….”
Those who pretended not to listen to Tao Pei’s cry also exclaimed, and Cheonmu Palace’s side closed their lips with their eyes wide open.
‘Ugh…… I don’t know….’
At heart, they want to shout, “You shouldn’t put such treasure on such a personal matter,” but then it means that they will be defeated.
When everyone is shocked in many ways. Tao Pei looked at him with a big smile.
“But can you really pay?”
“You don’t have to worry about me.”
I won’t even have to pay for it in the first place. Tao Pei stroked his chin in Kang Yoo-sik’s eyes when he heard such an answer.
‘You’ve got a lot of nerve…….’
If he has good skills, he’s not a bad candidate. Tao Pei, who was pondering for a moment, shook his head slightly and grinned.
“Then see you again tomorrow!”
Tao Pei, who left a big greeting, moved out of the hall as if he had decided, and others followed quickly.
Then Taoran stared at Kang Yoo-sik for a very short time, slightly tilted his head, and followed him outside.
When Cheonmu Palace left, it sank quietly as if the typhoon had passed, and Kang Yoo-sik alone ate the fruit next to him as if nothing had happened.
‘This is why I like people who have strong self-centeredness.’
He clearly feels danger, but he does not change his judgment by recalling his past experiences. Usually, even if you are right, if you take this once, you will be robbed.
‘Well, it wouldn’t be too deadly for that old man.’
Even if he lost, he would have taken it because he thought he could bear it with each S-class item and one AA-class item.
I appreciate it this time, but I never underestimate it. That’s what he thought. When Kang Yoo-sik was eating a lot of foods.
“Kang Yoo-sik cadet……You’re an unusual person.”
A creepy voice came out that seemed to be sweeping through the neck.
“What? Oh… well……I have a temperament. Haha.”
“Is that so? I think it was a very interesting deal to put it that way.”
“That’s not how…….”
“You look a little interesting.…. Won’t you compete with me too?”
Kang Yoo-sik looked at Ban Hye-young as if he was asking for help about Ahn Seol-ha with a dangerous smile.
“Ah…… the delicious thing over there…”
He ran away as if he hadn’t seen anything.

The day of the finals.
Visitors to the Elf’s tower were guided by Wisp, an artificial spirit, to the main auditorium where the competition was held.
As with all the Round Academy, the venue was decorated so splendidly that it was suspicious of its intention, and the audience looked around with an overwhelming expression.
Watching the scene satisfactorily from the jury, Victoria suddenly asked Heinz, who was sitting next to her.
“Who do you think will win today?”
“Of course, it’s a victory for Maze College.”
Heinz answered Victoria’s question with confidence.
The students of Maze College, which will advance to the finals, are all elites separately educated by Heinz, and they are excellent enough to be close to A-class Hunter, even if they are a little less than Trua.
“In particular, the magic using the artificial spirit that we created this time was a good idea even for me. It was a little lacking, but since it’s improved after the qualifying round, it will win enough…….”
A loud voice from the back. Heinz quickly opened the Mana Barrier to prevent the sound from spreading, and turned around with a grimace in his eyes.
“I must have told you to do something about that voice.”
“I’m born with this, so I can’t do it!”
“You son of a…….”
When Heinz is seriously thinking about throwing him out. Victoria, sitting next to him, smiled first.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
“Long time no see. The leader of Tae-heo.”
“Oh, it’s been a long time since you’ve been a knight commander! How are you?”
“I’m always doing well. You must have been doing well since you’re not changed from the past.”
“I’m taking care of myself because I can’t be as old as him next to you. Hahaha!”
Heinz’s eyes wrinkled and twisted around his mouth in Tao Pei’s word.
“What’s important is inside, not outside. That’s why you’re all getting a twilight divorce in the old age.”
“………are you provoking me?”
“That’s what I want to say.”
Heinz and Tao Pei stared at each other with growling eyes.
In fact, even though Ban Hye-young may not know, the two couldn’t get along so well. During their active career, they were hunters of the same magic type, and immediately after retirement, they became the head of an educational institution responsible for the magic field.
It may be a coincidence, but they were compared every time because their careers overlapped, and because of that, they couldn’t help but be competitive.
The biggest reason is that both Heinz and Tao Pei had a hobby of collecting expensive items, so every time they bought something, they collided!
“So that’s why you can’t even get Sleeping Dragon’s Ball.”
“It’s better to see valuables like Aketrab and miss it like fools.”
“I don’t think you deserve to say that when you lost Nata’s Gold by mistaking it with just a gold coin.”
“That’s because you took what I was going to buy!”
“You bought Aketrab while I was in the bathroom, too!”
When Victoria was looking at Heinz and Tao Pei, who seemed to grab them by the collar right away.
“Oh… I’m embarrassed.”
Ban Hye-young, who came to the judges’ seat, looked at them with cold eyes.
“You’re both over 70, and still fighting like babies…Aren’t you embarrassed?”
At Ban Hye-young’s scolding, Heinz and Tao Pei fell with a look on their faces, and Victoria, who was looking at them, smirked.
“I’m sure Ban Hye-young is perfect for those two.”
“I don’t want to get caught between them…….”
“Whoa. Oh, I guess the competition is about to begin. Then I’ll get going.”
“You can just see it here.”
“The audience seat is more comfortable. Take it easy, then.”
Victoria with a fresh smile went out, and Ban Hye-young stared at the two sitting next to each other.
“She left because you grandpas were making a lot of noise.”
“Because he’s talking nonsense about winning!”
“That snout doesn’t know how to shut up.”
In addition, Ban Hye-young sighed and shook her head at the sight of the two growling.
“I don’t know why you’re fighting over that. Yoo-sik will win anyway.”
Ban Hye-young smirked at Heinz and Tao Pei looking at her with a puzzled look.
“Both of you get ready to offer one S-class item.”
“That’s what I have to say.”
“You must be prepared.”
At a time when the three were engaged in a war of nerves, the tutor of the Round Academy, who was in charge of hosting, came forward.
“Then, let’s begin the finals of the three-party joint magic creation competition!”
Introduction and greeting of the judges. And formal procedures such as congratulatory speeches from the sponsors passed, and the final round finally began.
The demonstration sequence was conducted one by one at each school, and based on the results in the preliminary round, it was placed from the lower end.
This is because latecomers couldn’t spread out properly when the good ones came out first and killed their spirits.
“Cadet Lee Hoe-kyung is not bad, either.’
‘Chunmu palace is a little bit low quality…….’
‘There’s a reason why Round Academy keeps the top spot.’
After the turn, a magic using the artificial spirit that Heinz proudly talked about was unfolded, and exclamations were made everywhere on a three-dimensional magic scene made of Wisp.
Originally, the magic was supposed to be unfolded complicated, but Wisps provided support for the complex operation, so the magic came out quickly.
“Oh…… that’s nice.”
“Hmmm. Not bad. It’s not bad.”
Heinz looked triumphant in the evaluation of Ban Hye-young and Tao Pei. And Taoran came up next time.
After seeing it, Tao Pei added, twisting his lips.
“But it’s hard to win with that kind of magic.”
“What? You really…….”
“Just watch it.”
Heinz turned his head with a disapproving look at Tao Pei’s word, and Taoran bowed his head on the place.
With a clear and resonant voice, Taoran took out the talisman and scattered it everywhere.
The talisman depicting an octagonal magic square shone with different colors, and the fingertips of Tao Ran moved smoothly along the wave of mana formed around it.
The audience stared blankly at the dreamy scene of eight colors mixing, and Heinz opened his eyes wide.
He realized it clearly even though it was not yet completed.
The magic of the artificial spirit created by his student can never beat that, and he feels a quality difference thoroughly.
Seeing the look, Tao Pei looked at his grandson with a satisfied look.
The eight colors became black and white. It is completely divided into two colors.
Tao Ran, who divided the wave of mana brilliantly, grasped the mana of each field with one fist, and turned halfway around and let go of the hand.
And the moment there is a small black and white inside the big black and white.
The space where Tao Ran’s magic square unfolded shrunk by about a third.
Everyone who saw the scene looked at it speechless.
The space in the auditorium has shrunk. This means that the spatial expansion magic applied to the Elf’s tower has been partially unlocked.
“How the Lone Druid’s space magic…….’
“There was such a talent in Chunmu palace!’
Those who recognized the phenomenon looked shocked, especially Heinz, who looked dumbfounded.
‘How could he stop the flow of mana like that?….’
It was already existing, but considering the time spent on the composition and the amount of mana used, it was simply overwhelming efficiency.
“There’s still a lot to be desired, but we can make a formal announcement if we refine it a little bit. Isn’t that right?”
“Kukuk. You’re speechless with frightened.”
Toward Heinz’s absent-minded appearance, Tao Pei turned to Ban Hye-young with a triumphant expression.
“Well, he made it well.”
He just saw a moderately admiring face.
“…… is that all?”
“That’s all? I said he made it well.”
‘Is he acting?’
A normal person can’t help but be surprised at this.
With an incredible look on his face, Tao Pei turned to the waiting room.
‘That’s… I think I can break it, too.’
He found Kang Yoo-sik smiling at the cramped space.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
