n, they were confused whether it was Jiwoo’s work or Gyutae’s work.

“I think I’m gonna throw up.”

Taein repeated several times, as he walked back and forth, panting like a dog.
Kanghyun laughed at first, yet soon he turned into the same state as him.
Just as they were thinking they were really going to die at this rate, Jiwoo finished his tasks and helped the two.

They had cut it close.
The four men escaped from the swamp and shortly after, the swamp disappeared.
It was the first time Jiwoo had seen it vanish in front of his eyes. 

They made their way into Gyutae’s car, grumbling, unable to walk on their two feet properly.


An alarm message came.

It was a text message stating the daily wage had been deposited.
Despite that being the case, there was no room for joy.
It was nothing compared to what they felt trying to defend their precious 50 EXP. 

Jiwoo could not even feel the excitement over defending his points either.
It was essentially a life-threatening event.

Gyutae didn’t appear any different while Jiwoo felt like vomiting.
For a while, the four of them couldn’t move.
Drained, they remained so still one might mistaken them as dead.
Everyone leaned back on their chairs, sprawled out.

“We escaped the penalty.” Kanghyun’s tone showed just how alive he sounded.

“That rule is so ridiculous.
I can’t believe they would steal 50 EXP.
That means you have to raid 350 times to get to E-rank.
This is blatant robbery.
Robbery, I tell you.” Taein ranted.

Gyutae spoke up, seeing this as the moment to clear up the misunderstanding.

“I think all of you may have misunderstood a little.
It’s 50 for every rank up.
So it’s not just for E-rank.
It’s a good thing you all know what exactly you’ve avoided after you’ve actually escaped it.”

Gyutae had quite the time calming down the shocked Hunters.
Jiwoo didn’t even have the strength to open his mouth, so he listened to what they were saying before suddenly raising his arm.


All three of them turned to Jiwoo.

“My… My chakra level went up.”

Kanghyun, who was sitting next to him, turned and snatched his arm.

Chakra Level: 5

Chakra Proficiency: 16%

“Wow, that’s a sudden level up.
I’m jealous, Hyung!” Kanghyun said after he had stared at the tattoo for quite the time.

Taein also turned to look at it and was astounded.

“You’re amazing, Jiwoo.”

“Thank you, Hyung.”

“By the way, Mr.
Gyutae, what kind of weapon would be good for me? They told me to prepare to join the raid team next weekend.” Taein asked, but there was no response from the man.
Taein had tried to aim for the right moment to announce it and be congratulated for finally getting into a raid, but his timing couldn’t have been any worse.
Kanghyun was asleep with his mouth open, clutching onto Jiwoo’s arm, and Gyutae’s head was tilted, indicating he had fallen asleep as well.

The same applied to Jiwoo, who had just thanked him.
Taein almost got upset about the situation, but he too passed out immediately.
It was no surprise after they had consumed enormous amounts of chakra.

If they only had the energy to hold a knife and some extra energy to amputate the monster’s body, Kanghyun and Taein would’ve discovered that they were finally able to cut it.
However, their fatigue was at the limit.
What they needed the most right now was to close their mouths and go to sleep.


Taein’s posture as he entered the pizza shop was strange.
He came in with his right arm stretched out.
The three members, who had already arrived, burst out laughing since Kanghyun had done the exact same thing five minutes ago.

Kanghyun entered gloating, “I think my tattoo got heavier because my chakra figures shot up by three over the weekend.” 

They were like children.

Gyutae.” Taein called to him.

“I’ll try amputating the carcass again.”

“We will try amputating the carcass again.”

“I think we can try amputating the carcass now.”

Taein, Gyutae, and Kanghyun spoke simultaneously.

Jiwoo cackled, “You guys are exactly alike.”

“Oh, that’s right, Jiwoo.
My sister wanted me to tell you something.
She says she’s willing to wait for you.
I almost forgot.” 

His older sister had an iron will.


Jiwoo briefly paused, pondering how he should go about saying no.

“She said that you seemed to have been hurt by a woman, but she is confident she can teach you not all women in the world are like that.”

“Tell her I got the message for now.” Jiwoo said.

“Okay, that much is fine.”

It hasn’t been long since they have seen each other, but Gyutae had missed them.
Suddenly, the surgeon’s demeanor became serious causing the three of them to tense up too.

“I have something important to discuss with you all today.” Gyutae said.

“Yes, please go ahead.” Kanghyun replied first.

“All this time, we’ve been mainly in charge of transporting the corpses out of Class 5 swamps.
I believe we’re now at the stage where we could take on higher-ranked swamps.”
