He flinched, wondering if she had noticed that he was absorbing the codes, but she pointed to Eve.

“Is that what it looks like in battle?”

“Huh? Oh, well, yes.”


Eve had now turned into a bundle of chains and was floating in the air, shooting out whenever it saw Cloth Eaters.
He gave Eve the whole 10 remaining Sharpness from what he had given Lilith yesterday, and since the act of shooting chains also fell into the category of Wild Shooting, it was brutally effective.

“It’s pretty good.
It’s also fast….”

Even as she said so, her eyes clearly suspected it shouldn’t be that much.
Ban Yu-won shrugged, stabbing the Cloth Eater that just rose by his feet.

“There are stronger ones, but they can be noisy.”

“Louder than them?”

At that, Dok Go-yeon snorted and pointed at Light and Ruchel, who were running wild ahead.

“Ha! Hyaah! Die!”


Unlike Ban Yu-won, who knew that it was better not to make excess noise during a dungeon exploration, and Dok Go-yeon, who was naturally quiet, Light and Ruchel practically shouted their presence every moment.
You know, the sounds that come out whenever we hit basic attack commands in a game? It was just like that.

“Light seems to have a lot of combat experience, so why….”

“Not all combat experiences are directly related to these special environments.”

After the battle, Ban Yu-Won let out a small sigh, deciding to tell them himself.
But putting aside Light, Ruchel was…for some reason, it felt like she was driven by instinct, so he felt that she wasn’t going to get any better in the future.

After they advanced a bit while fighting like that, the Cloth Eaters started to decrease.

“Do you think the Room will be changing soon?”

I feel a strong energy gathering, and a monster with a different level is about to appear.”

“It sounds like an elite monster will appear, but from Room 1….”

Elite Monster.
Like a dungeon Boss Monster, it was a Tower monster with strong abilities.
Unlike normal monsters that disappeared, leaving nothing behind when they died (that’s why Ban Yu-won could absorb the codes without hesitation), these guys often left something behind, so Elite Monsters were one of the ways that students could earn money in the Tower.
The problem was that in most situations, encountering an Elite Monster meant getting kicked out of the Tower.


As soon as he heard Dok Go-yeon’s warning, Ban Yu-won looked around.
A stream of golden strings shone brightly on one side of the wall and gathered together!

It was closest to Ruchel.



Ruchel also seemed to have noticed it.
She swung one hand, sweeping away the Cloth Eaters around her, and then dashed straight toward the thing that had just sprung from the wall.


Was it the sound of the monster? Ban Yu-won, who tilted his head, soon realized it was Ruchel’s voice.



Ruchel pounded hard against the wall.
Something huge and amorphous that was welling from within the wall was smashed and destroyed without even being able to escape.
Small, black glass crystals fell between them, probably Magic Cores.

Ban Yu-Won hurriedly extracted the codes from the scattered monster’s corpse and looked at Ruchel.

“Pant, pant, pant…whew.”

After killing the monster, Ruchel was bent over and panting, but after her breathing calmed down, she picked up the Magic Core and returned to her party.
Light looked at her with astonishment, and Dok Go-yeon, with a gaze that understood everything, nodded, but Ban Yu-won focused on her body.
Precisely, her bangs.

‘I thought she had highlighted them, but no.’

The overall color of her hair was pink, and only a part of her bangs was dyed black, but now that part dyed in black was slightly stretched out.
Moreover, a part of her body code that he hadn’t seen was clearly visible.

It combined the concepts of Mind and Fire.
To interpret it, it could be said that she gained strength by burning her emotions like fuel.

‘What the hell? She’s a normal Berserker.’

Ban Yu-won, reaching that conclusion, smiled when he suddenly felt Ruchel pulling at his sleeve.

“W-Was that s-scary?”


“That, just now….”

She must have misunderstood the reason Ban Yu-won was staring at her.
He shook his head, denying her concerns.

“Not at all.
It was rather reliable.”

“Still, if I…get worse.”

“I said it was okay.”

Perhaps Dok Go-yeon didn’t like the way Ruchel hesitated and pulled at Ban Yu-won’s sleeves as she spoke in a cold tone and slapped away her hand.

“If you lose your mind completely, I will kill you.”

“You can’t, Dok Go-yeon.
If even one person dies, our exploration will have to start over from Room 1.”

“If you think you’ll keep going on like this, there is no choice but to climb with only us three.
No, climbing only with Ban Yu-won wouldn’t be bad.”

“Uhh, uuuh.”

Indeed, Dok Go-yeon was Dok Go-yeon.
Connection, my ass, she was only thinking about taking others out mercilessly!

Ban Yu-won smiled bitterly as he looked at Ruchel, who trembled even more at Dok Go-yeon’s cold attitude and gently grabbed her hand.

“I’ll think about it one more time.”


“Because I know why you are being more timid than necessary.
We just need to find a solution.”

“Ah! T-Thank you…!”

Ruchel was so moved that she grabbed his hand and trembled.
Seeing her like that, Ban Yu-won thought she was really like a puppy.

Meanwhile, Dok Go-yeon still wore a sulky expression.

“Were you just an ordinary man? Drooling over others’ appearances….”

“Such a misunderstanding.
There’s just no need to help you.”

“Heh, there’s no point in changing your stance like that.”

Although Dok Go-yeon coldly kicked away his blatant flattery, Ban Yu-won, the owner of Complete Sight, was able to reaffirm the truth (at least to the extent that he experienced) from her subtle changes in expression that she appreciated the praise.

Ban Yu-won wasn’t particularly attracted to Ruchel’s beauty, and he did that just to make her feel better.
To reiterate, the reason he held Ruchel’s hand wasn’t that he wanted to have close contact with a pretty girl.

He was just analyzing her codes and thinking about how to get rid of the side effects of her ability.
