At that, I was left completely speechless.

How do you know? I had nothing to say.
I couldn’t answer that I knew because I’ve read the whole novel, in which you appeared in, except the epilogue.
Baek Tae-beom’s gaze at me deepened when I didn’t answer and only kept my mouth shut.
I felt chagrined by the suspicious look on his face.

“How do you know, Hyung?”

Reluctant to ask insistently, I suddenly came up with an answer.

“Actually….”

I whispered, acting as if I were speaking about something exceedingly difficult to bring up.

“I have a constellation too.”

“Yes?”

“I have a constellation just like you.
I couldn’t talk about it before because the constellation told me not to say anything about its existence.”

[The constellation, ‘One Who Knows The End’, tells Baek Tae-beom that what he is saying is right.]

[The constellation, ‘One Who Knows The End’ whispers to Baek Tae-beom that it is true.]

It seemed that even two brains would not be enough to deceive, lie, and catch the wind.

(PR: here, the two brains are Tae-beom’s constellation’s words and Ga-hyun’s words.
Catch the wind means finally finish persuading.)

“My constellation told me.
We were going to get something useful in that dungeon.
So I went to the dungeon using my skill, and it just so happened that you… were there also.”

That’s an incredibly stupid explanation, I could only think that.
I laughed as I held the remaining on Baek Tae-beom’s hands.

“And you take this.
It’s useless to me.
And you’ll probably get quite a bit of money if you sell it.”

“Hyung….”

“What, do you have any more questions?”

I spoke naturally and smiled at Baek Tae-beom.
There were no more excuses now.
A cold sweat ran down my cheeks.

Then, Baek Tae-beom slowly shook his head, and began to speak in a moved voice.

“How could you think of me as so much….
You’re a really, really good guy.”

I was convinced.

‘This guy’s a real pushover.’

* * *

As soon as I got home, the first thing I did was thoroughly inspect the skill.
And as a result, I’ve learned several things.

First, as a result of experimenting with two watches, I found out that the flow of time spent in the sanctuary and outside is the same.
I also learned that by carrying the watch inside, I could carry external objects into the sanctuary.

So I realized that I could use this sanctuary like some kind of home.

Sleeping on a mattress in a room full of books did not do me any good, so I decided to stop renting the room and live here.
This was because I was able to create new facilities in the sanctuary.

[House interior for a small constellation E]

[An installation item made for constellations who want to play house.]

[Price: 10,000 Coins]

I suddenly thought of the constellations washing in the bathroom and shook my head.
Because it was clear that only people in special situations like me would use this.

And there was a fact that I realized late, perhaps because the situation had suddenly come to this point.

I didn’t feel hungry.

Like a person whose metabolism had stopped completely.

It was kinda nice, but not unacceptable.
Rather, I thought positively.
If I don’t eat, then I can save money on food, isn’t that a good thing? Above all, it’s not like I couldn’t eat at all.

It was all the more so considering that I was fired from my part-time job a while ago.
I don’t think I’ll get sick because I’m only eating ramen now.

I removed the bandages that were wrapped around my wrist.
I was able to move the injured part effortlessly.
I was appalled that my body wasn’t like mine, but I think it would be hard to survive without this much merit in the first place.

I wonder what Baek Tae-beom is doing now?

[According to your will, the real-time streaming service of the contractor will proceed.]

I thought he might be sleeping by now.
It was morning, but it could be that due to the fatigue accumulated from yesterday’s experience not being completely relieved in a day.
Or maybe he’s doing something else now.

From what I could remember, Baek Tae-beom was originally a college student, and was working part-time after taking a leave of absence to pay for his younger brother’s hospital bills.
I don’t know what time he goes to work part-time, but would it be that he’s working hard in the morning?

But I was a bit shocked by the fact that one side of the wall was hazy.

“What’s going on?”

And suddenly, a handsome face appeared.
Pure white hair soaked in water was clinging to his cheeks, and his beautifully shining golden eyes looked straight ahead.
The tall nose bridge, thick red lips, the veins lined on his neck and the collarbone, and that chest….

“Wait, this crazy… No, no! Stop!”

I screamed in shock at the natural close-up of the screen.

[According to your will, the live streaming service of your contractor will be canceled.]

My heart was pounding wildly.
I put my hand on my chest and exhaled.
This damn streaming system.
Shouldn’t you be giving me a warning when he’s washing up like this? It was the first time I realized that I could die of a heart attack from such good looks.

Ring ring-

And suddenly, the basic ringtone of the cell phone rang, so I had to grab my chest once again to calm myself down.
The sound of a new cell phone ringing in a quiet space seemed to blame my own selfishness.

“He-Hello?”

– Hyung?

“Ah, …Don’t startle me like that.”

– You didn’t reply to my text message.
Were you able to get home safely?

“Huh? Uh, well, of course.
I got home safely.

I tried to speak in a calm voice.

“What have you been doing this morning?”

– I want to see you again.

“Huh?”

– Yesterday, you told me about what you heard from your constellation.
I’d love to hear more.
Like items and things about dungeons.

I also.
I almost thought I had the illusion that you were saying that you really wanted to see me, so my heart almost sank again.
Baek Tae-beom needs to keep in mind that he is too handsome for his own good.

– I quit my part-time job, so I have time.
It’s all thanks to the gems Hyung gave me yesterday.

“Your part-time job?”

– Yeah.
Actually, I… I have a sick brother.
I was in a hurry to pay the hospital bills.
But there were people who bought what Hyung gave me yesterday for 5 million won each.
So I quit since I thought that I could take a break for a while.

“I see.”

Even with that said, I felt conflicted.

Baek Tae-beom was originally caught by Yoo Jin-woo and Kim Yong-tae, and a serious accident occurs at the place where he works part-time.
And as a result of that accident, he was cut off from his part-time job and in the end, there was only Yoo Jin-woo and Kim Yong-tae, whom he could rely on, so he fell into hell.

In other words, the storyline of the novel was completely twisted now.

‘Is it really okay to do this?’

Maybe it’s a good thing.
If you think about it, the destruction of the world would have been prevented from the beginning.
In this way, if I were to stay close with Baek Tae-beom for about two years and do well, Baek Tae-beom would surely grow up to be a cute little tiger who could destroy the world and not like a lion that you could see eating a rabbit in a nature documentary.

– Hyung?

“Uh, oh, yes.
Let’s meet.”

– Should I go to Hyung’s house?

“Huh?”

I quickly looked around the white room with a bathroom door and a mattress and continued in a calm voice.

“No, no.
Just… I’ll see you at the cafe.
I’ll give you the address.”

– Alright then, Hyung.

I hung up the phone and fell into complicated thoughts.
If this happens, doesn’t it mean that after two years, all the content in the novel that I know of will become an illusion? But Baek Tae-beom’s voice, who said that he could pay for his brother’s hospital bills now, was bright and cheerful, so I felt that this was more than enough.

“Contractor Information.”

[List of Contractor Information.]

[Contractor –  Baek Tae-beom Who Bent The Mist]

[Title : One Who Bent The Mist

Status : Anticipation

Contracted Constellation: One Who Knows Who The End

Coins possessed: 18,000

Skill possessed: [Dark Sword Dance] [Hermit]

There are skills that have not been developed because the conditions have not been met.]

Now that it has come to this, it would be good to play the role of a proper constellation.
If I clear the dungeons with Baek Tae-beom, I will be able to earn coins as well.

[List of Coins possessed.]

[Coins Possessed: 8,000]

I felt proud for no reason, so I sponsored Baek Tae-beom.

[Skill: Sponsor is activated.]

[You sponsored 100 coins to Baek Tae-beom]

[Current coins possessed: 7,900]

About 30 minutes later, I turned on the contractor streaming service again.
Then, I saw Baek Tae-beom, who was sitting on a cafe chair in casual clothes with his hair half dried.

By the way, watching like this makes me feel like watching a movie.

“That time, I stretched out my hands, but I couldn’t hold my balance and rolled over, and….”

I muttered as I slowly walked into the screen.

“If you do this…!”

My vision blurred.
And as if my body was sitting down, I could finally sit on a stable surface after doing that.
Feeling proud of myself for not showing any unsightly behavior, I suddenly realized that Baek Tae-beom’s face was a bit too close.

“…Hyung?”

I was sitting on Baek Tae-beom’s thigh.
