ut he completely changed after he became a hunter.

Joo Yiwon looks down on people other than himself.

It doesn’t feel like he’s bullying other people because he’s drunk on his power.
Rather, when he talks to other leaders, there is a sense of confidence that comes from someone who has spent a long time at the top.
But there’s no way the 24-year-old Joo Yiwon would have become like that suddenly.

Shin Jihye believed that it was because of the great pressure that came from being an SS-rank hunter.

Anyways, Yiwon was right.
There was no time for her to be here like this.

The dungeon that appeared in the middle of the city’s downtown area was the biggest disaster at the present.

A dungeon that appears once doesn’t disappear immediately, and the gate remains in the same spot.

Although there’s no problem if it’s raided frequently, no one likes to live next to a ticking bomb just because they say it’s safe for now.

As a small guild, it was hard for No Name, which was closely involved with this situation, to take care of this by themselves.

Although Jihye didn’t usually step into guild matters because her younger brother didn’t want her to, this time, Jiho reached out for help first.
Of course, Shin Jihye had been planning to help anyway.

“Ha, alright… I should go.
I am busy, after all.”

In the end, Shin Jihye surrendered.
With troubled eyes, she reduced her violent aura and approached Jiho, who was blinking at his older sister because he didn’t know what she was doing.
Jihye hugged her brother lightly. 

“Anyways… you did well with your first dungeon raid.”

“Ah, yeah… thanks.”

“Rest well for now, think hard, and then retire as a hunter and come back home.”

“For now, I’ll focus on resting.”


Threatening to the end, Shin Jihye shook her head as she left the hospital room.
Soon, hurried steps could be heard getting further away.

Only the two were left.
Yiwon sat down on the bed Jiho was lying on.

When Jiho scooted away, Yiwon stuck even closer to him.
He pulled Jiho into his arms tightly so that Jiho wouldn’t be able to escape.

“Wh-What are you doing?”

“You hugged Noona.
Hug me too.”

“Are you and Noona the same? Move….”

Repulsed, Jiho, who was going to tell Yiwon to move and push him away with his hands, paused.

Yiwon’s body, which had looked normal, was shaking.
Weakly, like a person who had been suddenly thrown into the middle of winter.

Not even his sister, who was his family, had trembled like this after checking that Jiho was alive…

Jiho’s hand hung awkwardly in the air, unable to properly push Yiwon off.
Yiwon caught the hand and moved it to wrap around his own waist.
He himself then pulled Jiho into a hug again.

Jiho unexpectedly ended up holding Yiwon’s waist with one hand.
He put a little bit of strength into it and pulled him close.
As Jiho did so, Yiwon put more strength into his own arms.

‘This guy is too strong…’

If someone else had seen them, they would have thought a dead lover had come back to life or something.
Even though Jiho thought this was an overreaction, when he heard Yiwon’s roughly beating heart, he obediently leaned his body on Yiwon.

Even if they’re not lovers, they are like brothers, after all.

Although they had never hugged this tightly before, they had at least put their arms around each other’s shoulders.
Considering how Jiho had almost died, Jiho could endure this much contact.

The two people hugged for a long time.

5 minutes, no 10 minutes…

Jiho hit Yiwon.
His patience had run out and he was also tired because of how hard Yiwon was hugging him.

“Hey, that’s enough…”


“I can’t breathe.”


Yiwon let out a sigh on Jiho’s neck before slowly letting go.

The place where Yiwon’s breath had landed had goosebumps.
While Jiho rubbed his neck, Yiwon, who usually had proper posture, sat on the edge of the bed in an awkward position.

The hot gaze on Jiho was unfamiliar.
Jiho laughed awkwardly. 

“Hey, it’s not like I died…”

“You almost died.”

“It’s fine as long as I’m not dead… Don’t overreact and get off the bed now.”



Jiho answered shortly.
As if to make him feel better, Yiwon whispered warmly to Jiho.

“You said you gained a skill.”


“What kind of skill did you gain? Seon Tae Woong said your skill made him many times stronger.”

“…It’s exactly as he said.”

“If you explain it like that, how do I know what kind of skill it is?”

His voice was low but his eyes were sharp.
Only his voice was warm.
The interrogative atmosphere made Jiho frown.

How much should he tell him?

He wasn’t thinking of revealing everything about his skill to Yiwon.
It was usually better for hunters to hide a few things rather than to reveal everything.

Of course, Yiwon wasn’t someone that Jiho had to act defensively about.
He wasn’t the kind of person to open his mouth easily either.

But Jiho didn’t want to tell him everything.
After thinking a little, Jiho decided to reveal just a bit.

“I gained the skill to strengthen others, not myself.”

“Did you escape the dungeon with your skill?”

“Well, yeah… I think this is pretty useful.”

Actually, Jiho didn’t gain just one skill.
Jiho pretended to move his gaze away, and he looked to the side before bringing up the system.

A rectangular window that no one else could see appeared in mid-air.
Jiho called up the window with his skills.
