“From Germany. . .?”

Puzzled, Baek Geon-ho thought about what business Germany could possibly have here.

They had said it was to look into the investigation regarding the ghoul ambush, but that could have been done over the phone.

There was no reason to come here in person.

“Have them come in first. Let’s hear what they have to say.”

A moment later.

The entourage that had accompanied Siwoo to the sparsely populated lobby were guided to the same place as the group that had arrived from Germany.

“Greetings, Branch Manager Baek Geon-ho. I am Harald from the German Hunters Association,”

A young man who seemed to be the leader greeted him politely.

“Likewise, Harald. I’m pleased to have you visit us so unexpectedly.”

“I apologize for the sudden visit.”

Harald bowed his head slightly, sensing Baek Geon-ho’s meaning.

“What brings you here? Have you found any specific information about the raiders?”

“. . .That is currently under investigation, and it is not something I am authorized to discuss.”

“I see. Then what is the purpose of your visit to Korea?”

“We are here today not for the HSIU Guild Leader, but for the hunter affiliated with you.”

Harald looked around and approached Siwoo.

“Hunter Min Siwoo, I am here to convey the gratitude of the German Hunter Association President, Rolf Bangenhelm.”

Min Si-joon, Choi Sung-il, and the HSIU executives standing next to him widened their eyes.

It was very rare for a hunter association president of another country to send someone in person to congratulate a hunter for their achievements abroad.

Furthermore, Rolf Bangenhelm had a reputation for being a cool-headed negotiator, even on an international scale.

“If it weren’t for Hunter Min Siwoo, there would have been countless casualties that day. It would have been difficult to uncover the mastermind behind the ghoul outbreak, and we might have fallen into even greater chaos.”

As Harald concluded his speech, he opened a briefcase and handed it to Siwoo.

“What is this. . .?”

“In addition to the bonus, this is a special privilege for Hunter Min Siwoo from the German Hunter Association.”

Baek Geon-ho jumped up from his seat.

“Harald, would it be alright if I also took a look at the contents?”

“Yes, of course, Branch Manager HSIU.”

“I’ll look at it too.”

Min Si-joon also stood up from his seat and interjected.

Harald glanced at him and seemed to recognize him, his eyes widening slightly in surprise.

“You’re. . . aren’t you the Guild Leader of the [𝐈𝐦𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐆𝐮𝐢𝐥𝐝]? I apologize, but it would be difficult for Sir Hunter Siwoo to accept this if it’s from another organization.”

“I am Hunter Min Siwoo’s younger brother and legal advisor.”

“Then please look at it together.”

Siwoo felt increasingly annoyed by the number of bothersome things that kept cropping up today.

He handed the paper document to Baek Geon-ho and Min Si-joon since it was of no interest to him.

It was up to them to figure it out.

“50% tax reduction when hunting in Germany. . . Honorary member of the German Hunter Association, treated as a VIP when visiting Germany. . . Priority assignment to a guild if immigrating to Germany.”

Baek Geon-ho’s anger flared as he read the dense document.

These were benefits that were nothing more than sweet talk, a blatant attempt to encourage immigration to Germany.

‘They have to offer incentives, but they don’t want to just give them away. So they’re just asking him outright.’

As expected of Rolf Bangenhelm.

Baek Geon-ho was annoyed by his sly attempt to steal Siwoo away.

“A bonus of 800 million Euros for successfully completing the mission and fulfilling your duty as a hunter. . . Approximately 10.8 billion won?”

“What?!”

“10.8 billion won??”

Gasps of astonishment erupted around them at the enormous sum.

10 billion won was equivalent to the annual salary of a top-class hunter in Korea.

It was crazy to offer such an amount as a bonus.

“So, what do you think? President Bangenhelm has promised you all of this in the hopes of fostering a mutually beneficial partnership between us.”

“Are you declaring that you’re going to take one of our hunters?”

Baek Geon-ho did not hide his discomfort.

HSIU was barely keeping him satisfied, so it was upsetting to hear that someone else was offering a better deal.

“I do not know President Bangenhelm’s intentions. I am simply doing my best to carry out the mission I have been given.”

Harald replied coldly, as if he didn’t care about the opinions of others.

Strictly speaking, the German authorities were not indebted to the HSIU in Korea, but to Siwoo.

And Rolf Bangenhelm was a man who clearly separated public and private matters.

Layla’s testimony and Siwoo’s story were not 100% reliable, but he had no intention of acting in a narrow-minded way by allowing his personal feelings to cloud his judgment.

Invest boldly in those who are worth investing in.

Hunters were ultimately motivated by rewards and glory, so he planned to offer them what they wanted and draw them to his side.

“You said your name was Harald, right?”

A single voice cut through the cold silence that had filled the room.

“Yes, Hunter Min Siwoo.”

“First of all, please convey my gratitude to the President for his consideration. And as for the benefits offered by Germany. . .”

“. . .”

“I will decline all of them.”

“Excuse me??”

Siwoo did not consider the political intentions behind Rolf Bangenhelm’s offer.

That was Baek Geon-ho’s or Min Si-joon’s job, not something he needed to decide.

Harald was not the only one surprised by his sudden statement, but Siwoo’s shocking words continued.

“Also, I will donate 30% of the bonus I receive to Hans Schröder’s medical expenses, and the remaining 70% to the families of the hunters who died in the terrorist attack.”

“Ah. . .”

Harald couldn’t immediately think of what to say next.

There was no hunter in the world who would refuse such a special offer.

Well, perhaps a hunter who had a solid position in their own country could refuse to go to Germany.

But to refuse a bonus worth over 10 billion won?

“I. . . I, Hunter Min Siwoo, this is not a signing bonus or a conditional offer if you come to Germany. It is a bonus given to you in gratitude for your efforts in defeating the ghouls. . .”

Harald didn’t know why he was making excuses, but he stammered on, thinking that Siwoo might have misunderstood.

However, Siwoo’s expression and demeanor did not change in the slightest.

“I know it’s not conditional.”

“You know. . . That?”

“30% of my bonus will go to Hans Schröder’s treatment, and 70% will be distributed to the families of the hunters who died in the ghoul attack. Please convey that.”

Harald’s mission had been to make Siwoo feel the generosity and magnanimity of Germany’s goodwill and rewards, in front of many witnesses.

But Siwoo didn’t seem to feel anything.

Because there was no sign of calculation or greed in his expression, tone, or actions.

“Are you sure you’re okay with this? You might regret it.”

Harald asked one last question.

A question with the hope that at least a sense of regret would cross his mind.

“Is there anything to regret? Please give Layla my regards. I’ll go see Hans as soon as possible.”

Siwoo smiled brightly.
