“And is there any guarantee that everything she said is true? How can a guy who makes money by being a guide be swayed by a dead person? If the deceased becomes an evil spirit, it will harm human society even if it is not intentional.
So no matter what happens, the guide just needs to follow the procedure.
Don’t you put your thoughts at the top of your head?”


“Wow, bro.
You just sounded like the CEO.
Of course, you’re a lot more violent, but….
Do you meet the CEO often?”


I don’t think I have the chance to see her often.
I haven’t even seen the shadow of her nose in over two months. After Ji-Won became a member of Zanice Company, he encountered Gaon only four times, but only barely exchanged greetings.
There was even a time when Gaon, who seemed quite busy, went away with only her eyebrows raised in his direction from afar.


“Wait a minute.”


Looking back, the only time he had a conversation-like conversation with Gaon was the first day he met her.


“It was quite embarrassing to be dragged here by force, but it’s even more absurd to be told to just leave like this.
Is there any reason for my disqualification?”


It wasn’t a conversation, but he was rather arguing.
Gaon’s expression was too emotionless even when he thought about it now, it was a calm face without an ounce of anger.
He still couldn’t understand why it bothered him so much.


“I’m not belittling your ability.
It’s a disaster because you overwork.
It’s true that it’s a talent that we really need.
Nevertheless, I’m just trying to send you back because there are few beings in this world that will hold your talent.”


“What does that mean?”


“If you become a guide, the boundary between this world and the underworld will be blurred in your eyes.
A person who has no lingering attachment to this world can let go of his obsession with life more easily at a critical moment.
Human life is so fragile that if you lose your will, it can easily turn off like a wisp of smoke.”


“You’ve got the wrong person.
I’m not a person who gives up easily, and I have a lot of lingering feelings about this world.”


The first thing that came to his mind was definitely his aunt.
No matter what happens, he couldn’t die before his aunt.
He couldn’t have his aunt watch his funeral.
If the heart of Lisa was the finest and clearest piece in him, the scathing curse of his uncles was the most evil and dark part.
He wouldn’t want to give even a penny to those pathetic people.
He’d rather grind them up before he died than leave his fortune behind for them to swallow.


“And I can’t guarantee this won’t happen again.
If you don’t let me deal with the ghosts at all, I can’t ignore them since I see them all the time.
Are you going to drag me here like this every time that happens? If that’s the case, please let me do it officially.
I think that’s why you brought me here in the first place.”


The Chief of the Security, who had lost his usual smile at some point due to Ji-Won’s fierce demand, flagged without a sound.
Contrary to his worries, Gaon seemed to have judged that his words made sense.
Briefly lost in thought, she eventually reversed her decision, and although she did not know about Ji-Won at the time, it was not common.


“You run a gallery?”




“Then it’s conditional to do your job at the same time.
If you take your hands off the gallery or neglect what you used to do, you will be blocked from entering Jungcheon altogether.
I’ll make another position next to Director Kwon and Director Seo.”


Of course, the result of being so stubborn was not always satisfactory.
There were times when he wondered if he should have done something wrong to someone who wanted to kick him out nicely.
Overall, however, the benefits were greater than the losses.
First of all, it was quite hard to endure the boredom day by day, but each time the events were so spectacular, at least there was no time for boredom.


Above all, he found out that there were colleagues with the same ability as him, and the biggest harvest was the sense of security that he was doing a recognized job with them.
He had been struggling not to show off, but in fact, the anxiety that he was really a psychopath has plagued him for quite a long time.


“All the guides are recruited by the CEO.”


“Well, that’s true.
What kind of car did you bring today? Can you show me around?”


If I had stepped into this world when I was a little younger, would I have been able to live as innocent as this guy? Ji-Won, who was staring at Yeon Hae-Soo, smiled and shook his head.
No, this is nature.
It’s also a talent not to be hated while being selfish.
Although Ji-Won was well-known for being a little cold to people, it was strangely difficult to be cold to Hae-Soo who was like a puppy.


“I don’t have it now.
I told someone else to ride it.
Let’s take your car.”


“Huh? I didn’t bring a car today….
Hey, the weather is nice.
Would you like to walk to the bus stop? I just need to walk for 40 minutes for exercise.”


However, fortunately or unfortunately, Hae-Soo was also excellent in making Ji-Won’s weak heart strong again.


“What are you saying you crazy? Can’t you call a taxi right away?”






Breakfast with his aunt was very inconvenient and embarrassing, as expected.
Lisa was not an opponent for Ji-Won to gloss over, but he couldn’t be honest with her either.
When asked by her what he was doing yesterday, Ji-Won replied that his work was similar to environmental monitoring.
He was well aware that it was not a plausible excuse for his aunt, who knew him well, but he couldn’t think of any other suitable excuse to explain why he jumped into the mountain road out of the blue.


“You’re doing volunteer work running with your body?”


It gets a little boring by doing only gallery work.”


“What’s the name of your group?”


“Name…, uh…, It’s an organization run by Zanice Company.
I even have my desk in Zanice’s Headquarters building.
Of course I don’t go there very often.”




The doubt did not completely disappear from Lisa’s eyes, but the prestige of the name Zanice was great.
Lisa made no further mention of the matter, and the two managed to finish their meal amicably.
Ji-Won, who hurried to say goodbye to his aunt who had to return to New York soon left the hotel wiggling her eyebrows irritably when an unexpected phone call came. Oh, come on.
I’m on vacation right now.


“Ha, it’s Cha Ji-Won.”


[Director Cha… Cough.
I’m Kwon Hyun-Ho.
I’m really sorry.
I know you are on a vacation, but…. Cough, cough.
Will you be able to accompany the CEO on her business trip to UK?]
