ry so we’re good.
At least give Mr.
Chun a call.”

“You don’t even know him that much.”

Alright, I talked too much.
Let’s talk next time.
Good luck with your work.

“Okay, later.”

Jiwoo hung up.
He suddenly realized he didn’t pay attention to his surroundings as he casually talked on the phone.

Kanghyun grinned, it looked like he had listened in on the call albeit unintentional.

“That does happen.
It’ll slowly feel like you’re growing distant from the ordinary folks, especially when you do raids.
You can’t really talk to your family about the dangerous work you do either.”

“That’s true.”

“When Hunters hang out, their conversation contains information which could help them.
However, no matter how close you are with your normal friends, they’ll feel that gap.
It can’t be helped.
Even when we say we’re having a hard time, they still hold that stigma that we’ll be fine since we make a lot of money.
They also expect a lot from you, as a Hunter, if anything major does happen.”

“Really? That hasn’t happened to me yet.”

“By the way, didn’t you have to call someone? Don’t mind me.”

“Okay, then let me make a quick call.”

Jiwoo went and called Kijeong, if he delayed it anymore he didn’t know when else he’d do it.

Kijeong picked up and asked Jiwoo if he was adjusting well to the Hunter’s life.
He also told him that he was home and was drowsy due to taking the meds the hospital gave him.
Jiwoo said he would visit him soon and then hung up.
He was relieved hearing how healthy the man sounded.

A text message notification popped up.
Jiwoo checked it to find that Body firm sent him a deposit of 720,000 won.

I keep getting paid more these days.”

Kanghyun also nodded to that.

Gyutae, are you giving us a portion of your paycheck?” Kanghyun asked.

“All of you will need a lot of money to spend in the future.
You have to buy equipment, weapons, armor, and much more.
Besides, you don’t have to thank me since I gave you what you deserve.
I’m taking care of myself just fine, so there’s no need to worry about me.” Gyutae responded casually.

“Do other surgeons do this too?” Kanghyun asked again.

“I don’t care what other people do.
All I want is for us to help each other as long as we’re a team.”

Jiwoo thought that whatever wall had been around them had collapsed the day they found his pill bottle.

During their dinner outing, Jiwoo found out a few things about his teammates.
Gyutae couldn’t drink because of his medicine, and Taein turned into a mutt with a sip of alcohol.
Kanghyun also promised his mother that he wouldn’t drink until he was 20, thus he did not touch alcohol in front of him.
As a result, Taein was the only one who drank among the four of them with Kanghyun having to clean up after his mess.
Fortunately, Taein was sober enough near the end to call his sister.

“Sis, I need you to pick me up.” He passed out after he left those last words.
About 20 minutes later, his sister, Lee Taerim, arrived.

At a glance, she was taller than her brother.
Her legs were long; she had a small face with eyes, nose, and lips that looked too big to fit her face.

Taerim found her brother sprawled on the table and approached him.
She greeted Gyutae and the others.

“I apologize.
You wouldn’t know he would act like this.
It’s best if you don’t drink with him next time.”

Then she grabbed Taein’s smartphone.
Jiwoo was curious what she was doing when he saw that she deleted her number from his contacts.

“I’m sick and tired of him calling me whenever he drinks.
He can’t hold his alcohol for his dear life.”

Jiwoo chuckled to himself and made eye contact with her.

“I’ve heard a lot about you from Taein.
You’re Tenten, right?” She asked him

“Ugh, not Tenten again.” He glared at his tattoo while cursing internally, “It’s all because of you.”

Yet oddly, he noticed something had changed.

He hadn’t checked his tattoo in a while since the numbers stayed the same, but his chakra proficiency had increased.

Jiwoo grabbed Kanghyun’s arm and checked his tattoo.

Hunter Grade – F/Dealer

“What’s wrong, Hyung?” Kanghyun asked.

“What was your chakra proficiency originally? Like when you first met me.”

“What? Huh? It went up!”

His went up by 6 percent while Jiwoo’s was up by 34.
It was evident Jiwoo’s went up faster and was up more than Kanghyun’s.

Jiwoo also checked Taein’s tattoo while he was at it.

Hunter Grade – F/Dealer

Taein said he would join raids soon.
His chakra level remained at 6 and his proficiency was at 2%.
All of a sudden, Jiwoo felt weak in the knees.
He looked at his own tattoo again.

34%, the new figure was glistening proudly on his arm.
