The Late Game Healer Is Way Too Strong – Chapter 11.3

It was a new system implemented by the 〈HSIU International Headquarters〉 for the safety of its agents and to secure evidence of crimes.

It was currently in the pilot stage, and Hwang Jeong-gu had asked Siwoo to wear it just in case.

“I forgot to turn it on.”

Hwang Jeong-gu stopped trying to remove the body cam and raised his hands at Siwoo’s innocent answer.

“N-Never mind! If you happen to get into combat again, please! Turn on the body cam first. We’ll take care of the rest, so please go ahead and take a look. I’ll see you tomorrow!”

“Okay.”

When Hwang Jeong-gu bowed 90 degrees, the other team members also bowed their heads awkwardly and greeted the newcomer.

“Team Leader, who the hell is that rookie. . . . . . .”

“Don’t ask. Just don’t get on his bad side.”

Hwang Jeong-gu slapped the back of Gang-ho’s head and put him in the car.

Hong Kong.

Inside the B-rank gate that had suddenly appeared, dozens of Hunters were fighting a bloody battle with monsters.

The [𝐑𝐞𝐝 𝐋𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐆𝐮𝐢𝐥𝐝], which was ranked among the top three in Hong Kong.

Among them, one man stood out for his movements. A giant man with fiery red hair tied back in a ponytail.

The blue armor that covered his right fist from his elbow to his wrist was particularly eye-catching.

The armor gradually glowed blue.

“Everyone, get away.”

The giant man spoke in a deep voice and swung his right fist.

Kugagaga!

As if a sharp claw was tearing at the ground, dozens of monsters disappeared without a trace.

“As expected! This is the Chief of Team 1!”

“We’re alive thanks to the Chief! Thank you!”

“Hahaha! Let’s ride this momentum and wipe them all out!!”

The Hunters of the [𝐑𝐞𝐝 𝐋𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐆𝐮𝐢𝐥𝐝], whose morale had been boosted, charged forward.

Gert, the giant man, watched them indifferently.

He brushed his long, flowing red hair and tied it back up.

A long scar on his forehead was revealed.

“Chief. . . . . . we have a call from Korea.”

“From Korea?”

A Hunter from the [𝐑𝐞𝐝 𝐋𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐆𝐮𝐢𝐥𝐝] came in from outside the gate and informed Gert.

Gert walked out without changing his usual expressionless face.

“It must be urgent news.”

Unless it was something extremely important, they wouldn’t call a Hunter who was in the middle of a raid inside the gate.

It was a rule that had to be followed in a life-or-death situation.

“That’s. . . . . .”

The low-ranking Hunter couldn’t say anything else and just handed the phone to Gert.

“I’ve switched the call.”

━Are you Hunter Gert?

It was a voice he had never heard before.

“Yes.”

Gert’s expression hardened at the stranger’s call.

━Are you by any chance the brother of Jiken?

“. . . . . . . . . . . . Yes.”

Gert sighed at the sound of his brother’s name. It had been a long time.

Jiken, also an Awakener, had chosen the path of crime.

There was no other reason for Jiken, whose rank wasn’t particularly high, to have reached out to crime.

It was a necessary evil to feed his younger brother, Gert, and their family.

In fact, Jiken had fed his family.

After that, when Gert awakened, Gert suggested to his brother that they work together in the Guild.

However, Jiken refused.

Saying that he had already come too far, he told Gert to become a great Hunter on his own.

He had heard news of his brother from time to time.

It was all terrible news that he couldn’t bear to laugh at.

The organization Cerberus was a place where only the most vicious people gathered.

He would have been better off staying with him and living a comfortable life as a Hunter while being treated well.

━I’m sorry to give you this news. Jiken has passed away. As his only remaining family. . . . . . .

He listened to the words coming from the other end of the receiver without missing a single syllable.

His jaw was clenched.

Gert handed the phone back to the low-ranking Hunter.

Of all the expressions he had seen so far, the look on Gert’s face was the coldest and most terrifying, and the low-ranking employee turned pale.

Thud. Thud.

“C-Chief? T-The raid isn’t over yet?”

Gert, who was walking in the opposite direction instead of returning to the gate, was asked by the employee.

“I’ll report to the guild master separately.”

“What do you mean?”

“I’m going to Korea today.”

“W-What? R-Right now? What’s the matter that’s so urgent?”

Gert looked at the palm of his armored hand and clenched his fist, then whispered softly.

“I’m going to bury someone.”
