e meantime, I could faintly hear the brothers’ quarrels.

“Move, Kang Soo-hyun.”

“I will not move.”

“Now you’re defending the bastard who abducted you?”

“…I wasn’t kidnapped.”

No, that’s a little…

I shook my head inwardly as I listened to  Kang-Soo Hyun’s faint words.
Is he being nice or stupid? It’s obvious that I kidnapped him.
It’s just that I didn’t use violence or threats in the process.

Kang Yoo-hyun and Kang Soo-hyun didn’t have a very good relationship.
In particular, Kang Yoo-hyun was trapped in a  twisted time axis after entering the gate and wandered around other dimensions for more than 300 years.

During that time, he suffered tremendous pain.
While hundreds of people who entered the gate with him went insane, only Kang Yoo-hyun managed to maintain his sanity and personality.

Still, 300 years was a long time.
When he finally returned to his original timeline, Kang Yoo-hyun was almost insane.
Facing his long-forgotten brother, he thought of only one line, “Oh, so that’s what happened.”

So now, rather than worrying about his younger brother, Kang Yoo-hyun was mostly angry at him, who was already barely within his boundaries, for defending the culprit.
This was also mentioned in the novel.

Kang Yoo-hyun gradually regains his former goodness and peace of mind through the people around him.
However, this is still the beginning of the novel when Kang Yoo-hyun’s mind is at its most unstable.
It was currently impossible to have a proper conversation with him.

I had to escape.
I thought so desperately, but my weak legs couldn’t move at all.

Damn it, I’m like a paper doll.

It was when I barely raised my head while swearing inside, that I heard what Kang Yoo-hyun had to say.

“If you weren’t abducted, then what?”

“So that’s…”

I could see Kang-Soo Hyun’s back blocking me.
His trembling wide back  showed he was clearly struggling.

“Move aside for now.
I need to find out who that bastard is…”

“Well, that person is not like that…!”

“I flirted with him in front of the school!”

“…What?”

“I flirted with him.
He is….”

Kang Soo-hyun, who had been hesitant, finally spoke up while glancing at me behind him.

“Because he’s pretty.”

“…”

“…”

Kang Yoo-hyun became silent when Kang Soo-hyun said those absurd things, and I was silent too.

“Stop talking nonsense and get out of the way.”

“Hyung!”

Seeing Kang Yoo-hyun, who was annoyed and pushed his younger brother, I managed to come to my senses.

I didn’t want to die being trampled on by that crazy bastard like GodzilX.
I love monster movies, but actually encountering them is extremely frightening. 

The protagonist I admired so much was thus instantly turned into a monster.

I dragged my unmovable leg up to Eden.
Eden was still unable to control his body, perhaps due to Kang Yoo-hyun’s skill.

“Hey, Eden.”

“Ugh.”

“Get it together!” 

Perhaps because Kang-Yoo Hyun’s target was focused on me, Eden was not as affected and seemed fine.
I glanced at the siblings who were bickering until Kang Yoo-hyun’s palm hit Kang Soo-Hyun’s back.

I had to run away.
But I couldn’t do it alone.
I looked up and locked eyes with Eden.

“Use your power when I signal you to.”

“W-what?”

“And close your eyes.”

“…?”

I frowned at the thought of using the skill.
I remembered the ‘Catnip’ skill I read about carefully last night.
The darn skill, whose name was already odd, was an assist skill and could amplify the stats of the target.

The problem was the added precautions due to the skill being changed to S class.
I read a detailed explanation about the need for special conditions for higher ranks.
And the explanation written was… spectacular.

It explained that the skill can be used only when there is a direct “contact” with the target.
I couldn’t believe it and read it over and over again.

It was sexual harassment if the subject was a woman, and too disgusting if the subject was a man.
I couldn’t understand why on earth there was such a condition for activating the skill.
I swore all night, and when I got into a situation where I actually had to use my assistive skills, I got angry again.

“Close your eyes!”

“Huh? Oh.”

Eden closed his eyes in confusion.
For a short time, I was fiercely distressed because it had to be skin contact.
Anyway, we just have to touch each other, right?

Thinking briefly, I roughly placed my hand on Eden’s elbow.
Then, I could feel his  cool skin in contact with my palm.

Fuck, fuck, fuck!

I don’t know why I have to touch a fucking man’s bare skin.

No, this is for survival.
For the sake of survival.

I repeatedly muttered this like a mantra to calm myself down, and then continued using my power.
But unfortunately something was strange…

“…Hm?”

“What are you doing?”

Eden stared down at me as I grabbed his arm.
What’s wrong with this? It was written that the skill would work when the synchronisation was over.

Catnip! This fucking catnip skill!

“What are you doing?”

I was startled when an eerie voice came from behind.
Kang Yoo-hyun, who finally pushed Kang Soo-hyun over, approached Eden with glaring eyes.

Yijin said here is a pun, it means the illustrator is so talented that he was staring blankly at Yoohyun lmao.
