Mana in the shape of Min-junโ€™s past ripped apart as if torn into pieces.

Siwoo muttered while looking at the mana gathering back inside the glass bottle.

โ€œVIP. Higher than that.โ€

โ€œA guest or an honored guest. It could also mean an important person, someone who should be treated specially.โ€

It depends on the context.

Is there any place Min-jun belongs to other than the research lab?

It doesnโ€™t seem like thereโ€™s anyone in the research lab who would refer to a VIP.

Siwoo was deeply lost in thought.

Of course, the culprit who killed Min-jun said that he was ordered to do so by โ€˜someone higher than a VIPโ€™.

The one with the ultimate authority is a being โ€˜higher than a VIPโ€™.

This is like a rising action of a chicken.

But usually, if someone is called a VIP, that person would be the highest authority.

VVIP. . . Is that a separate organization?

Whatever, I can just ask the culprit once I catch him.

Siwoo clearly remembered the face of the culprit he saw for a brief moment.

An unknown murderous intent swirled from within.

If heโ€™s a criminal, he must be in the HSIU database.

If not, I can use other methods.

โ€œ. . . . . . . . . .โ€

Siwoo quickly spread his mana to widen his territory upon hearingPreโ€™s words.

His space expanded rapidly like a shooting light.

Siwoo closed his eyes and sensed the things within his manaโ€™s reach.

โ€œHa.โ€

A chuckle escaped his lips.

Seven Awakeners were approaching him in a circle.

All of them were using their mana.

It was clear that they had a purpose and intention, not just simple reconnaissance.

Pre asked in a fat voice.

He had no sense of crisis at all.

โ€œWell.โ€

However, Siwooโ€™s tone was equally nonchalant.

Crack.

He cracked his knuckles.

There was a pleasant sound.

โ€œIโ€™ll know if I ask.โ€

Siwooโ€™s eyes emitted a cold light.

[๐‘๐ž๐ ๐‹๐ข๐ ๐ก๐ญ ๐†๐ฎ๐ข๐ฅ๐]โ€™s secret service.

Liu Yan-fang, the leader of the secret service, was in a very bad mood.

He had come all the way to a distant country called Korea and was waiting for orders.

โ€˜That son of a b*tch Gert! Calling out seven secret service members just to kill one guy. If only the guild leader didnโ€™t favor that guy! And what the hell is the target?โ€™

The second reason for his bad mood was the target.

He observed the target that Gert had pointed out with an unpleasant expression.

An experienced Hunter could tell by just looking at someoneโ€™s face.

However, he couldnโ€™t sense any aura or thrill from his opponent.

The lowest of the low.

โ€˜I expected more since he killed Gertโ€™s older brother, but I guess he was just lucky. Or maybe Gertโ€™s older brother was just a low-level Awakener. Anyway, heโ€™s nothing special except for that HSIU tag.โ€™

Still, the fact that seven secret service members were called in must have been due to Gertโ€™s anger as the leader of the 1st division.

โ€˜Theyโ€™ll probably torture him to death. It doesnโ€™t seem like they called seven people just to be wary of a guy like that.โ€™

Liu Yan-fang clicked his tongue.

He felt sorry for the weak prey.

Judging from Gertโ€™s cruel nature, it was clear that he wouldnโ€™t die until he begged to die.

โ€œRyu, weโ€™re all set. Weโ€™re just waiting for your order.โ€

The deputy leader approached and reported to Liu Yan-fang, the leader.

โ€œAre you all in position?โ€

โ€œWeโ€™re surrounding the research lab. Weโ€™re waiting to enter through different entrances.โ€

โ€œGood work. Iโ€™ll ask sir Gert and let you know.โ€

Liu Yan-fang nodded and immediately called Gert.

โ”What.

โ€œYes, Chief. Iโ€™ve confirmed that heโ€™s inside.โ€

โ”Is he alone?

โ€œYes. It looks like an abandoned building. I used my detection skill and thereโ€™s only the target inside.โ€

โ”Can you capture him?

Liu Yan-fang took a deep breath and exhaled. Mana sparkled in his eyes.

โ€œDonโ€™t you think the answer is obvious from the fact that you called us?โ€

โ”I see. Iโ€™ll take care of the Korean Hunter Association guys.

Gertโ€™s curt but firm reply.

Click. The call ended.

The dial tone rang clearly in his ear.

Liu Yan-fang raised his head.

A crescent moon peeked out from behind the clouds.

The sky looked the same in Hong Kong and Korea.

He carefully put on his mask upside down.

โ€œChief Gertโ€™s order has come down. Restrain the enemy.โ€

The deputy nodded and disappeared in an instant.

About a minute later, Liu Yan-fang, who realized that everything was ready, took a step forward.

Mana from his dantian flowed into his body. Physical enhancement with mana.

The tough body of a B+ Hunter was reborn into an even tougher and more destructive body with the addition of mana.

He felt like releasing the overflowing energy, and his fingers twitched.

โ€˜Ancient History Research Labโ€™

A dilapidated sign hung crookedly at the entrance.

Liu Yan-fang gave instructions to other members with hand signals.

They all charged in different directions at once, intending to surround him.

Three.

Two.

One.

Boom!

Crash!

Seven figures sprang up from seven directions and rushed inside at the same time.

Fortunately, it was possible to infiltrate since there was nothing around the research lab.

Liu Yan-fang boldly broke the front door and stepped inside.

โ€˜I can picture him panicking and running around. I hope he doesnโ€™t pee or poop on the floor.โ€™

There are times when things are handled quietly and secretly, and there are also times when the opponentโ€™s soul is blown away in such a noisy manner.

It depends on the purpose, but this time, the target wasnโ€™t to assassinate but to subdue and hand over to Gert.

Liu Yan-fang scanned the darkness with his sharp eyes, where dust was rising.

The research lab was old and didnโ€™t have any lights, but instead, the moonlight that seeped in through the domed ceiling dimly lit the interior.

Liu Yan-fang, who imagined the guy sitting on the floor in terror, felt his spirits rise.

There was a way to hand over the guy who was trembling in fear to Gert, but Liu Yan-fang had a different idea.

โ€˜We deserve to be compensated for our hard work. He made us come all the way to Korea for this.โ€™

He would play with him until he broke down mentally and then hand him over to Gert after roughly stopping the bleeding with a potion when Gert arrived.

Gert wouldnโ€™t be able to say anything even if he resisted a little during the capture.

โ€˜Besides, Gert wants to kill him too. He wonโ€™t complain just because we laid a hand on him.โ€™

It took about 2~3 seconds to break the front door and walk to where the guy was.

Liu Yan-fang tried to face the guy with a smug look on his face.

โ€œ. . . . . . . . . What the hell.โ€

However, his expectations were shattered.

The guy was sitting in a chair, nonchalantly.

With one arm supporting his chin.

โ€œDid he lose his mind?โ€

Liu Yan-fang muttered.

He heard that he was a rookie who had just come out of the Tutorial Tower, so it was understandable that he couldnโ€™t grasp the situation.

He bit his lip.

He didnโ€™t come here to see such an arrogant expression.

Daring to talk back to him.

โ€œHey.โ€

The target opened his mouth at that moment.

โ€œAre you the boss here?โ€

Liu Yan-fang twisted his lips. A chuckle escaped his mouth.

โ€œSo what if I am?โ€

โ€œIโ€™m in a bad mood today. If this keeps up, I might kill you all. . . . To be honest, Iโ€™m too lazy to do that. Iโ€™ll give you two options. Die or pass out?โ€

The guy asked with sunken eyes as if he was annoyed.

His face was full of apathy, and his expression was cold as ice.

Liu Yan-fang could tell.

There was no bluff, exaggeration, or lie in that voice.

A genuine warning.

A mere low-level Awakener.

โ€˜Iโ€™ll make you regret yapping your mouth off.โ€™

Liu Yan-fang secretly touched the dagger on his waist and drew the targetโ€™s attention.

โ€œYou little punk. You think you can talk big just because you awakened once? You donโ€™t like either of the two options? How about a third option? The option where I shove a knife through your mouth!โ€

He then threw the dagger at lightning speed.

Puck!

The sword pierced the empty chair.

โ€œHe disappeared. . . Is it a skill?โ€

One of the members muttered.

โ€œThen I guess you chose the first option.โ€

An icy voice rang out instantly.

Crack!

The moment a member tried to turn his head, his vision turned black with the sound of his neck breaking.

The first casualty in an instant.

โ€œWei Xin! Damn it!! Heโ€™s behind!โ€

Liu Yan-fang shouted urgently and used a skill.

Magic circles were created in both hands, and red iron chains shot out and soared towards Siwoo with a rattling sound.

โ€œYou son of a b*tch!โ€

Weixin bristled all over his body, as befitting the [๐‹๐ž๐ž๐œ๐ก๐ข๐ง๐ ].

Hundreds of thorns sprang out like those of a sea urchin and shot towards Siwoo.

Thud!

โ€œUgh. . . .โ€

However, Siwoo blocked all the thorns using the body of another assassin as a shield.

The assassin, who had been hit by the thorns, trembled and collapsed.

โ€œLin Wei!!! That son of a b*tch!โ€

Liu Yan-fangโ€™s blood ran cold when two people died in an instant.

He had never expected such a loss.

Bang! Bang! Bang!

The furious iron chains slithered like snakes, trying to ensnare Siwoo while gnawing at the walls of the research lab.

โ€œIโ€™ll do it!โ€

Another assassin activated his skill.

โ€œ[๐…๐ข๐ซ๐ž๐›๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ]!โ€

A huge flame gushed out of his mouth like a flamethrower.

The heat that seemed to melt everything blazed towards Siwoo without mercy.

Siwoo dodged other attacks and dodged around, but when he saw the flames, he stood still.

โ€œIs it fun? Is this what itโ€™s like to play with mana?โ€

He then held out one hand.

ใ€๐”ป๐• ๐•Ÿโ€™๐•ฅ ๐•๐• ๐•ค๐•– ๐•ฅ๐•  ๐•ค๐•ฆ๐•”๐•™ ๐•’ ๐•๐• ๐•จ-๐•๐•–๐•ง๐•–๐• ๐•—๐•š๐•ฃ๐•– ๐•ž๐•’๐•˜๐•š๐•”.ใ€‘

A huge magic circle was created around his palm, and dozens of strokes crossed the circle.

Nine letters were then dyed blue, and a cold aura began to bloom like a ripple.

โ€œT-This is. . .!โ€

โ€œ[๐ˆ๐œ๐ž ๐’๐ญ๐จ๐ซ๐ฆ]โ€

Zzzzeeeeeeeeeeet!

A fierce cold wind swirled around Siwoo.

The floor he was standing on, the desks, chairs, pillars, and even the chains that were trying to bind him were instantly covered in frost.

ใ€๐•‹๐•™๐•š๐•ค ๐•š๐•ค ๐•จ๐•™๐•’๐•ฅ ๐•’ ๐•ค๐•œ๐•š๐•๐• ๐•ค๐•™๐• ๐•ฆ๐•๐•• ๐•“๐•– ๐•๐•š๐•œ๐•–.ใ€‘

โ€œI thought he was a magician without a class! A healer!โ€

Liu Yan-fang snapped at the detection-type Hunter.

He felt like his face was being torn apart by the bitter cold.

โ€œHe is a healer. Itโ€™s just chill time now.โ€

Siwoo grinned with one side of his mouth.

ใ€๐”ฝ๐• ๐• ๐••, ๐•ช๐• ๐•ฆ ๐•๐• ๐• ๐•œ ๐•™๐•’๐•ก๐•ก๐•ช. ๐•๐• ๐•ฆโ€™๐•ฃ๐•– ๐•’ ๐•ก๐•–๐•ฃ๐•ง๐•–๐•ฃ๐•ฅ. ใ€‘

The flames that seemed to devour Siwoo and his ice magic clashed in the center.

A huge flash of light erupted from the collision of the two magics, and a shockwave shook the area.

โ€œUghhhhh!!โ€

The assassin who used the fire skill had his face turn bright red as he drew on all the mana he had in his dantian.

Buzzzzzzzzzz!

โ€˜This is ridiculous. . . Ice magic should never be able to defeat my fire magic?? What the hell is this guy!โ€™

He could feel his mana running out in real time.

It felt like his dantian was going to tear.

Still, he couldnโ€™t stop attacking.

Because he knew that the shadow of death would loom over him the moment his mana ran out.

โ€œShould I speed things up a little? The patient seems to be struggling.โ€

Siwoo slightly increased the intensity of his mana.

He just slightly increased the amount of mana flowing out of his dantian.

Zzzzeeeeeet. . . . Zzzzzaaaang!

A tremendous cold wind flowed from the magic circle like a ghostโ€™s breath, making the surrounding temperature as cold as a dark night.

The assassins shivered, not knowing what to do with the cold air that blurred their vision and bit their skin,

Buzzzzzzzz. . . . Zzzzeeeeeeeet!

โ€œUgh, uh, huh.โ€

The assassin, who was watching the flames gradually shrinking, could only watch as his hands, mouth, and toes slowly froze.

โ€œIs this enough?โ€

Siwoo stopped his magic and looked around.

The five surviving assassins stood trembling with their bodies half-frozen, facing Siwoo.

โ€œNow, Iโ€™m going to ask each of you one question.โ€

Siwoo approached the pyromancer who was closest.

โ€œWhatโ€™s the name of your organization?โ€

โ€œ. . . . . . . . . .โ€

โ€œTimeโ€™s up.โ€

Bang!!

A head that shattered into pieces.

Shards pouring in all directions.

The frozen body wobbled and fell sideways with a thud.

Siwoo took a step towards the next assassin.

His blue eyes sparkled in the darkness, holding a smile that seemed to have absorbed the moonlight.

โ€œW-What q! Wh, what q-question!!โ€

The assassin, whose lips were frozen, shouted desperately.

Upon hearing that, Siwoo,

Smirked and rejoiced.

He then raised one hand.

Soon, with a bang, the head that was expected to burst open,

โ€œUh. . . Uh? C-Chief!โ€

He survived with someone elseโ€™s mana.

โ€œAre you the one who killed my hyung?โ€

A gaze devoid of murderous intent approached from the entrance, hiding a powerful mana.

โ€œ. . . . . . . . . .โ€

Siwoo turned his gaze towards the opponent who had blocked his attack for the first time.

Flaming red hair appeared vividly under the moonlight.
