Screech.

Clack!

The door closed behind me with a slight sound. 

I rolled my eyes and looked around the room.
Was this the kind of scene in a chaebol’s living room that I saw in dramas? Even at a glance, expensive items were lined up. 

It feels like an unfamiliar room, but I feel quite accustomed now that the sync is over.
I feel weird.

“Oh Jin, you’re here?”

When I turned my head, the man sitting on the leather chair stood up. 

Jang Tae-san, Master of Loki guild.

The sensation after meeting him was different when reading from a novel.
Neither Eden nor Baek Si-hoo, but this guy really…

He looks like the uncle next door.

The Loki Guild occupied an important position among the Villain Union guilds.  Since he was the master of such a guild, I naturally imagined that he must have had a scary impression, like a gangster, but when I met him, he was like an uncle next door with a good appearance and a good impression.

In the novel, Jang Tae-san was an unexpectedly impressive man.
But he was a villain, a veteran villain, unlike his insignificant appearance, had to deal with all kinds of crimes.

I shouldn’t be convinced by his good impression.

Maybe because I was nervous, my body stiffened and froze.
When Jang Tae-san glanced at me, he smiled and opened his mouth.

“What are you doing there? Sit here.”

“…”

Surprised, my body reacted to his pleasant voice.
It wasn’t me, it was as if Han Yi-jin’s body had moved.

Was it because the synchronisation was over? I could walk quite well and sat in front of Jang Tae San.

Somehow, I made an arrogant pose.
I looked at Jang Tae-san with my long legs crossed and my chin lifted.
I don’t know why, but for some reason, I thought my face was very arrogant.

“Haha, are you resting well?”

“Am I resting well?”

“Haha…”

As soon as I opened the door in the morning, I frowned subconsciously, recalling the moment I met Eden, and Jang Tae-san’s thick eyebrows drooped down.

I was inwardly confused by the way he stared at me, as if he was trying to catch a glimpse of me.
However, I remained brazen on the outside.
I felt like my synchronised body should behave this way instinctively.

Moreover, this morning’s scene flashed through my head.
Eden, who bumped into me as soon as I opened the door to escape the Loki Guild.
And Baek Si-hoo, who came as soon as the commotion broke out.

Han Yi-jin lived as if he was confined in his room for some reason, and was even monitored to prevent him from going anywhere.
In such a situation, there was no way he could show kind words and actions with his temper.
Even if the other party was the guild master.

“Hey, are you still mad? But that…”

“What is that?”

I asked him because I really didn’t know, but the guild master looked confused.  Facing his face, I tried not to look nervous.

If only I had time, I would have glimpsed Han Yi Jin’s synchronised memories.
The situation of meeting the guild master without any preparation was too disconcerting.

“I mean, well, it’s not like I’m going to kill you, but you’re fucking idiot… No, if you make a fuss… What about my position? Huh?”

“…”

What is he really talking about?

Should I kill him? Fucking idiot?

What this felon said was too savage.

However, the only words I used were gentle and soft so that Han Yi-jin, whom I had possessed, would not detest me.

This subtle gap made me nervous.

What was the relationship between the guild master and Han Yi-jin? It seemed quite different from what I read in the novel.

“Phew… I see.
All right.”

“…?”

As I shut my mouth, the guild master sighed and shook his head, wondering what I was thinking.

Strangely, it was as if he was a father with a frivolous daughter who said, “I will definitely do what you want.”

“Then, I will let you meet this time, if you do this.
What did you say?”

“…”

What did he say? Who did you take me to see? I had no idea, but I looked quite intrigued in order to keep up the flow of the conversation.

“What is it?” I even asked deftly. 

Then the guild master’s face, who was looking at me, instantly brightened.
He handed me the files containing various documents as if he had been waiting.

“Then read this first, okay?”

“…”

I received the file and opened it.
Then someone’s photo fell on the table.
I reflexively took the photo.

He was a man with light brown curly hair.
He looks young looking like a high school student, judging by his school uniform.
He had a small face but big eyes with double eyelids and thick lips.
Plus, his angular face looked quite masculine.

For a moment, I thought that the guild master had given me a photo of an aspiring celebrity, but then I saw the boy’s name tag in the photo.

Kang Soo Hyun.

He is the younger brother of Kang Yoo Hyun, the protagonist of this novel.

Fuck…

As soon as the guild master gave Kang Soo-hyun’s photo and profile, I remembered the beginning of the novel.
Since I read it all night, I remembered the first episode quite well.

One day in the novel world, a gate suddenly opened and monsters flooded out.
People were bewildered and modern military forces couldn’t exterminate the numerous monsters.

The moment the gate opened, hundreds of people were sucked into it, and in a world completely different from this, they awakened and became talented.

Kang Yoo Hyun was the first generation Awakener whose abilities manifested. 

He manifested as an SS-class inside the gate.
He teamed up with other awakened people and tried to conquer the labyrinth within the gate, but several things happened and he was the only one who eventually returned.

Time had passed by the time he returned.
The only member of his family was his younger brother, Kang-Soo Hyun who was still a child before they separated, but when he returned, he became a high school student.

After his return and reunion, they became somewhat awkward with each other.
Kang Yoo-hyun’s personality was not the same as before as his old personality had long since disappeared, and Kang Soo-hyun felt awkward because he only remembered his kind older brother in the past.

Kang Yoo-hyun, who returned from the gate, received a love call from Odin, the top guild of Korea at that time, and he was drawn by the kindness of Odin’s guild master to help him.
They then cleared a series of dungeons that were impossible to conquer and kept rolling.

“Just, just 30 minutes! Just hold him for about 30 minutes and we’ll take care of everything.
Hm? That’s okay, right?”

“…”

Jang Tae-sang’s demand was to abduct Kang Yoo-hyun’s brother, Kang Soo-hyun.

Now, Kang Yoo-hyun had not yet joined the Odin Guild and the Villain Union was trying to kidnap and threaten his younger brother to sabotage him.

Would that work for the protagonist? I took a deep breath in my tanden.
Because this novel was very biased towards the main character, the villains’ misdeeds seemed somewhat childish.

“Then 15 minutes… What do you think?”

“…”

“10 minutes! No more!”

This bastard proudly negotiated to carry out the kidnapping.
Jang Tae-san exclaimed with a blue streak on his neck, knowing that I sighed because I didn’t want to. 

Of course I don’t want to do that.
I really don’t want to.

Because of this, Han Yi-jin got a lot of attention from the main character.
In a very bad way.
He died a little later, but I think this was when he was beaten by Kang Yoo-hyun and spent months in the hospital.

I didn’t remember it well because it was an episode I skimmed through, but I’m sure of it.

I looked through Kang Soo-hyun’s photo with reluctant eyes.
Kang Soo-hyun in the photo smiled brightly without knowing my worries.

I had to kidnap this bright boy.
Han Yi-jin’s body jolted as if he felt rejection.

However, it’s my job to follow the plot of the novel.
I don’t know what would happen if I refused.

I’ll just stick to the original work, and I don’t know if the guild master, pretending to be a good person now, will change in the future.

“Fine.
But, let me decide the place, time and method.”

“Huh?”

“I won’t take it unless it’s on these terms.” 

Jang Tae-san’s smiling lips trembled as I deliberately spoke in a firmer tone.
Maybe he kept repeating the letters “Patience” in his mind.

“S–sure, go ahead.”

“Then, I’m going back.”

As soon as I finished speaking, I took the file and got up from my seat.
I also don’t want to face the Villain Guild Master for too long.

“Ah.”

Then I turned around and opened my mouth when I saw Jang Tae-san looking at me strangely.

“And stop with the damn surveillance, alright?”

I still didn’t know why Eden, an A-class, was monitoring Han Yi-jin, but I felt so fucked up.

Besides, I had to find my own way after kidnapping Kang Soo-hyun, so it would be difficult if Eden continued to monitor me.

“What did you say?”

This time, Jang Tae-san’s face wrinkled, maybe because I said it boldly.

Then I sighed and shook my head.

“Don’t you know that my abilities are subtle? If I’m interrupted, my work will be disrupted.”

This was somewhat true.
Han Yi-jin was a valuable psychic.
It was not easy to give both illusion and hallucination with the majority.
This was why he had the highest mental strength in Stats, even though it was a fucked-up ability.

This made him anxious to be monitored, and also allowed him to not be able to carry out his job properly.

“Oh? Ohhh, that’s a problem.”

Jang Tae-san gave a forced smile as if he never had a wrinkle on his face.
However, when I saw his awkward smile, I knew it was a promise he would never keep.

Bastard, I’ll keep an eye on him.

I turned my head by clicking my tongue inside.

“I’m really going.”

“Yeah, yeah.”

I opened the door, while listening to the guild master’s greeting half-heartedly.

My head was full of worry, Han Yi-jin’s consciousness, which was still adjusting, firmly restrained his expressions and gestures.

So I left the room and finally managed to catch my breath.

“…Phew.”

It was when I turned around to go back-

“…!”

“…”

I faced the cold black eyes staring at me.
