The Late Game Healer Is Way Too Strong โ€“ Chapter 33

Siwoo arrived at the highest floor of the [๐ˆ๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ž๐ซ๐ข๐š๐ฅ ๐†๐ฎ๐ข๐ฅ๐].

His younger brotherโ€™s office took up the entire floor.

โ€œWelcome.โ€

The secretaries across from the elevator entrance stood up to greet him.

โ€œThe Chief is currently out of the office. He should be back soon. Would you like to wait inside?โ€

Min Si-joonโ€™s employees, who knew Siwoo was his older brother, led him inside.

Siwoo drank the coffee on the table and looked out the huge window.

Things have changed so much.

ใ€๐”ฝ๐• ๐• ๐••, ๐•ฅ๐•™๐•– ๐•ก๐•ฃ๐•š๐•”๐•– ๐•™๐•’๐•ค ๐•˜๐• ๐•Ÿ๐•– ๐•ฆ๐•ก ๐•’๐•˜๐•’๐•š๐•Ÿ.ใ€‘

. . . Crazy bastard.

Siwoo recalled the events of a few days ago.

The cave had been destroyed.

It seemed Crow had blown it up just as Siwoo and his party were escaping.

โ€˜๐™„ ๐™๐™š๐™–๐™ง๐™™ ๐™จ๐™๐™šโ€™๐™ก๐™ก ๐™—๐™š ๐™จ๐™˜๐™ค๐™ก๐™™๐™š๐™™ ๐™—๐™ฎ ๐™๐™š๐™ง ๐™จ๐™ž๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ง.โ€™

I have a rough idea who it is, but itโ€™s not urgent, so Iโ€™ll check later.

Because the cave collapsed, Hwang Jeong-gu was busy with the investigation.

It was said that countless Hunters were busy clearing away the debris of the cave and recovering the bodies.

However, the HSIUโ€™s recognition skyrocketed thanks to the annihilation of the underworld organization called ใ€ˆBESTIAใ€‰.

Just go to Hunter Tube and all youโ€™ll see is news about it.

Baek Geon-ho awarded Hwang Jeong-gu and Chu Ha-min of [๐–๐ก๐ข๐ญ๐ž ๐‹๐ข๐จ๐ง ๐†๐ฎ๐ข๐ฅ๐], who helped him.

Siwoo hated anything troublesome, so he asked to be left out, and the matter was concluded with the two of them resolving it.

โ€œSenior, are you really okay with this? Youโ€™ll get a commendation and a cash prize.โ€

โ€œOh, if I accept that, Iโ€™ll have to write interviews and reports instead.โ€

โ€ . . . . . .โ€

Hwang Jeong-gu had written all the reports so far, but he didnโ€™t bother to argue.

โ€˜๐™‹๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™š๐™ข๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™ž๐™ช๐™ข.โ€™

The results of this operation were better than expected.

He had avenged the killer who had killed Jeong Min-jun and destroyed the organization the killer had belonged to.

And he had gained good subordinates, Red Ear and Volk, and found out who was behind it all.

โ€œBut why in Pandemonium . . .โ€

It was an organization that had been banned and disbanded by each government because they worshipped the Demon King.

Siwoo investigated Pandemonium through the HSIU database as soon as he returned, but he couldnโ€™t find anything.

All that came up was the weak organization he had known from a dozen years ago.

Even that had disbanded long ago.

He had a hunch that it would be much more difficult than when he was chasing Black Mamba just by looking at her face.

He promised that he would definitely feed Pre rice bread as soon as he came out of his body.

BAM.

โ€œHyung, when did you get here?โ€

The door opened and Si-joon entered with a welcoming expression.

โ€œI just got here. Where did you go after calling me here?โ€

โ€œSorry, sorry. One of the killer groups was annihilated, and the Hunter Association sent a document asking for help.โ€

โ€œOh?โ€

โ€œDonโ€™t you know, hyung? The BESTIA incident. I went with the Team Leader and Chu Ha-min Hunter, who you fought with. . . Donโ€™t you know anything about it?โ€

โ€œI donโ€™t know.โ€

His younger brother narrowed his eyes and gave him a suspicious look.

Thatโ€™s because Siwoo was the only one who could act as a hub between Hwang Jeong-gu and Chu Ha-min.

The combination of two Hunters who didnโ€™t get along at all.

Of course, HSIU Branch Manager Baek Geon-ho and Choi Sung-il of [๐–๐ก๐ข๐ญ๐ž ๐‹๐ข๐จ๐ง ๐†๐ฎ๐ข๐ฅ๐] said it had been discussed in advance, but it was unbelievable.

โ€œYou didnโ€™t go to that cave with them?โ€

โ€œWhy would I?โ€

ใ€๐•๐• ๐•ฆโ€™๐•ฃ๐•– ๐•ค๐•  ๐•ค๐•™๐•’๐•ž๐•–๐•๐•–๐•ค๐•ค. ๐•€ ๐••๐• ๐•Ÿโ€™๐•ฅ ๐•“๐•–๐•๐•š๐•–๐•ง๐•– ๐•ช๐• ๐•ฆ ๐•’๐•Ÿ๐•ช๐•ž๐• ๐•ฃ๐•–.ใ€‘

Siwoo plopped down on the guest sofa.

Min Si-joon couldnโ€™t shake off the creepy feeling, but he couldnโ€™t keep tripping over the fact that he said no, so he decided to let it go.

โ€œAnyway, whatโ€™s the matter?โ€

โ€œOh, thatโ€™s right! Do you know the Hunter Shin Ji-soo who came out of the Tutorial Tower with you, hyung?โ€

โ€œI saw her on the 1st floor.โ€

Siwoo hadnโ€™t forgotten Shin Ji-sooโ€™s name.

He just pretended not to know because it was fun.

โ€œThe two of you are connected, so I sent her when you were giving a lecture last time. Did you see her?โ€

โ€œI saw her. It was a mess.โ€

โ€œT-Thatโ€™s . . . because she doesnโ€™t have any real-world experience.โ€

โ€œAnyway, why her?โ€

His younger brother wouldnโ€™t have called him for someone elseโ€™s business.

โ€œCould you maybe be her mentor?โ€

โ€œMentor?โ€

Siwoo frowned.

His reluctance was obvious, so Min Si-joon hurriedly continued.

โ€œNo, I donโ€™t mean teach her every day. I just want you to guide her from the sidelines so she can use her skills.โ€

โ€œBecause her skills are unique?โ€

โ€œOh! How did you know?โ€

Certainly, the skill Shin Ji-soo had shown him a little while ago was quite unique.

Basically, the ability to control other living beings was an absurd ability in itself.

Some skills are fixed with the ability they had when they were acquired, but in Shin Ji-sooโ€™s case, it was a growth-type skill.

A fraudulent ability that could have crazy effects depending on the userโ€™s ability.

โ€œShe told me herself.โ€

โ€œShe did? Maybe she told you because youโ€™re reliable, hyung.โ€

โ€œWell, maybe itโ€™s because sheโ€™s an idiot.โ€

โ€ . . . Um.โ€

Siwoo chuckled.

From his experience with her for a few days, Shin Ji-soo was quite intelligent.

It was just that the education she had received at the Academy was strange.

โ€œSo . . . I just want you to teach her the basics. We want to teach her on our side, but thereโ€™s no one with similar skills.โ€

Usually, the role of mentor is taken by a Hunter of the same lineage as the mentee.

For example, a melee Hunter who uses flame magic would learn from a senior Hunter who fights in the same way, and a Hunter who uses tracking magic would learn from a tracking-type Hunter.

However, manipulators like Shin Ji-soo were not common, and the ability to manipulate monsters in particular was rare worldwide.

Siwoo understood his younger brotherโ€™s words roughly.

Of course, there was no such concept as a mentor-mentee for the 1st generation Hunters.

They had to develop their skills on their own, and they had to learn how to fight monsters by watching the person next to them.

โ€˜๐™๐™๐™š ๐™จ๐™ฎ๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ข ๐™๐™–๐™จ ๐™œ๐™ค๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ฃ ๐™—๐™š๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ง.โ€™

Thanks to this system, the Hunter mortality rate had plummeted.

Of course, there was a fatal flaw in the lack of diverse experiences.

โ€œI guess you told Baek Geon-ho about this in advance?โ€

โ€œThatโ€™s right. He said heโ€™d support us with potions and equipment. And he said heโ€™d give you the position of advisor to the [๐ˆ๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ž๐ซ๐ข๐š๐ฅ ๐†๐ฎ๐ข๐ฅ๐].โ€

It was Min Si-joon that Siwoo felt sorry for, not HSIU.

He could have asked him as his older brother, but since his brother belonged to HSIU anyway, he thought it wouldnโ€™t be bad to connect him with them.

โ€œAnd you like teaching people, hyung.โ€

And this one sentence moved Siwooโ€™s heart.

โ€œItโ€™s a waste to let such an ability go to waste.โ€

Siwoo had enjoyed the fact that he was able to help someone develop their abilities ever since he had taken on his first disciple.

Just as Min Si-joon was now because of Siwooโ€™s teachings.

โ€œThen Iโ€™ll leave it to you! Advisor Min Siwoo!โ€

Min Si-joon bowed his head playfully to Siwoo.

โ€œLeave it to me, Guild Leader of the [๐„๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ข๐ซ๐ž ๐†๐ฎ๐ข๐ฅ๐]. Iโ€™ll guide you in your training as Guild Leader later.โ€

โ€ . . . I sincerely decline.โ€

Siwoo waved his hand casually and walked out the door.

It seemed like he wouldnโ€™t be bored for the time being.

๐Ÿ”ท๐Ÿ”ท๐Ÿ”ท๐Ÿ”ท๐Ÿ”ท๐Ÿ”ท

Shin Ji-soo was in the Hunter training room.

A place with simple gym equipment and equipment for practicing magic.

Of course, the weights were too heavy for ordinary people to even lift.

โ€œHup!โ€

She lifted the bench press with all her might.

Her whole body shook and her arm muscles screamed.

It was twice as heavy as what she had lifted before going up the Tower.

Her physical abilities had improved compared to ordinary people after her awakening, so she had to do this much.

CLANG.

โ€œWhew.โ€

She was exhausted.

Honestly, it was hard to work out every day, but it was also satisfying to see her muscles gradually grow.

โ€œAt this rate, Iโ€™ll be able to catch even a troll with one shot?โ€

โ€œWith your shitty skills?โ€

โ€œAckโ€”!!โ€

Shin Ji-soo was startled by the sudden voice and hit her forehead on the bench press bar as she raised her body.

โ€œAre you practicing your shitty shot?โ€

โ€œOuch, that hurts . . . What are you talking about!โ€

โ€œI told you. Youโ€™re shitty.โ€

โ€œNot that kind of talk!โ€

โ€œHey, stop talking nonsense and get up.โ€

Shin Ji-soo got up from her seat grumbling.

โ€ . . . Whatโ€™s the matter?โ€

โ€œDidnโ€™t Si-joon tell you?โ€

โ€œTell me what?โ€

โ€œIโ€™m going to teach you from today.โ€

She stared blankly at Siwoo with her mouth open.

She had heard that they were looking for someone to teach her because there were no Hunters of the same lineage as her.

โ€œClose your mouth. A fly will get in.โ€

โ€ . . . Yes.โ€

โ€œAnd what is this youโ€™re doing? Weights?โ€

โ€œI need to build up my strength to wield weapons when Iโ€™m hunting monsters!โ€

โ€œWhat about magic training?โ€

โ€œSir Hunter Siwoo taught me that . . . you know.โ€

โ€œThatโ€™s why youโ€™re doing that?โ€

โ€ . . . โ€œ

Shin Ji-soo avoided his gaze, just twiddling her fingers.

She hadnโ€™t seen anyone around her who continued the training Siwoo had taught her.

It was too difficult and complicated, so everyone had given up.

โ€œOh? Isnโ€™t that Ji-soo?โ€

Then someone approached and pretended to know her.

It was Kim Byung-guk, a Hunter and trainer belonging to the [๐„๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ข๐ซ๐ž ๐†๐ฎ๐ข๐ฅ๐], and his followers.

โ€œOh, hello.โ€

โ€œSpeak comfortably. Haha, are you working out? Shall we work out together today?โ€

โ€œThatโ€™s . . . I think I should go out now . . .โ€

โ€œWhy? Oppa will teach you.โ€

Shin Ji-soo hesitated, then glanced at Siwoo and continued.

โ€œA new teacher came to teach me.โ€

โ€œOh, really? But heโ€™s not from our Guild. Shouldnโ€™t you be taught by someone from the same Guild?โ€

Kim Byung-guk said to Shin Ji-soo with a smile.

Kim Byung-guk, who was quite a playboy, had met many novice Hunters using his position.

To him, Shin Ji-soo was a very attractive target.

โ€˜๐™Ž๐™๐™šโ€™๐™จ ๐™ฅ๐™ง๐™š๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™ฎ ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™๐™–๐™จ ๐™– ๐™œ๐™ค๐™ค๐™™ ๐™—๐™ค๐™™๐™ฎ. ๐™๐™๐™š๐™ฎ ๐™จ๐™–๐™ฎ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™–๐™ฉ ๐™œ๐™ž๐™ง๐™ก๐™จ ๐™ก๐™ž๐™ ๐™š ๐™ฉ๐™๐™ž๐™จ ๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ก๐™ก ๐™™๐™š๐™ซ๐™š๐™ก๐™ค๐™ฅ ๐™– ๐™˜๐™ง๐™ช๐™จ๐™ ๐™ค๐™ฃ ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช ๐™ž๐™› ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช ๐™Ÿ๐™ช๐™จ๐™ฉ ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™–๐™˜๐™ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š๐™ข ๐™– ๐™ก๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™ก๐™š.โ€™

So he had been teaching her how to lift weights little by little over the past few days, but then a strange guy appeared and tried to steal her away.

โ€œFirst, letโ€™s warm up your body with some exercise. You need basic physical strength no matter what you do.โ€

Kim Byung-guk was also a seasoned Hunter and A-Rank, so he knew the faces of most Hunters.

However, the trembling face next to Shin Ji-soo was unfamiliar.

Thatโ€™s why he treated him like he didnโ€™t exist and spoke only to Shin Ji-soo.

โ€œLie down again. Oppa will check your posture.โ€

โ€œYes. . .? B-but . . .โ€

Shin Ji-soo hesitated, stuttering.

Then Siwoo, who had been watching from the side, sighed and said.

โ€œHey, why are you lying down? This kind of thing wonโ€™t help you in hunting even if you do it a hundred days.โ€

โ€ . . . Who are you to speak so rudely? Iโ€™m a Hunter trainer for Shin Ji-soo.โ€

Kim Byung-guk looked Siwoo up and down and made his own judgment.

He didnโ€™t know what Shin Ji-sooโ€™s skill was, but she didnโ€™t have a mentor yet.

Some Hunters who had been grumbling had gone to the Guild Leader to ask if they could teach her, but they had been flatly refused.

Kim Byung-guk frowned.

โ€œFrom what I can see, youโ€™re a lecturer belonging to some second-rate Guild. Donโ€™t get caught up in something youโ€™ll regret and learn from me. Iโ€™m an A-Rank Hunter of [๐„๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ข๐ซ๐ž ๐†๐ฎ๐ข๐ฅ๐].โ€

โ€œWhatโ€™s the point of rank? This kind of thing is why your skills donโ€™t improve.โ€

โ€œWhat did you say. . .??โ€

Kim Byung-guk was furious at Siwooโ€™s words.

Even though he wasnโ€™t a ranker himself, he wasnโ€™t so insignificant that he would be ignored by this guy.

He wasnโ€™t a high-ranking member or a captain of [๐„๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ข๐ซ๐ž ๐†๐ฎ๐ข๐ฅ๐], but he was still a senior Hunter.

โ€œHow ridiculous. You little punk whoโ€™s as small as a goblinโ€™s dick, you like Hunter Shin Ji-soo, so you came out here to catch her in front of her, but shut up and get lost.โ€

โ€œThe one catching her is you.โ€

โ€œDo you really want to lose? Iโ€™m not the kind of person who uses violence in front of women, but you keep asking for it. Why donโ€™t you grab me and hit me?โ€

โ€œIโ€™m busy teaching her today. Make an appointment in advance.โ€

Kim Byung-guk felt his sanity slipping away.

โ€œFollow me. Iโ€™ll show you how to lose in front of the woman you like.โ€

There were quite a few other Hunters in the training room besides them, and Kim Byung-guk was going to show them how he was being ignored without any filter.

If he just passed over this kind of humiliation, the juniors would definitely ignore him too.

โ€˜๐˜ฟ๐™–๐™ข๐™ฃ ๐™ž๐™ฉ, ๐™ค๐™› ๐™–๐™ก๐™ก ๐™ฅ๐™š๐™ค๐™ฅ๐™ก๐™š, ๐™ž๐™ฃ ๐™›๐™ง๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™ฉ ๐™ค๐™› ๐™Ž๐™๐™ž๐™ฃ ๐™…๐™ž-๐™จ๐™ค๐™ค.โ€™

Kim Byung-guk led his party out first.

Siwoo and Shin Ji-soo followed, and the Hunters who had been watching nearby began to follow them stealthily.

โ€œIโ€™m . . . s-sorry. Iโ€™ll go and apologize, so in the meantime, why donโ€™t you contact the Guild Leader. . . ?โ€

โ€œWhy him?โ€

โ€œHunter Kim Byung-guk may not be talented, but he has a lot of experience as an A-Rank!โ€

โ€œDidnโ€™t I tell you that Iโ€™ve been to another world?โ€

โ€œYou. . . did?โ€

Siwoo ruffled Shin Ji-sooโ€™s hair.

An exclamation of Ah! Why! Donโ€™t do this! was heard softly.

โ€œThe first lecture is a viewing, so watch carefully.โ€

Siwoo twisted his lips as he entered the sparring room.
