“Are you finished?”

“No!”

The two Dionysus gods broke out into a fight.

While the gods blamed each other, Veld watched from the corner like an outsider.

Since he was staying so quiet, the arrow was soon pointed at Veld as well.

“This is all that Demonic Realm bastard’s fault.”

“Yeah. That crazy demon invested so many experience points that I thought he knew something we didn’t.”

The Dionysus Gods began to glare at Veld.

In response to the Dionysus gods’ attack, Veld frowned and trembled with his back hunched over.

The Demonic Realm had always been treated as a lesser place that was not good enough to interact with the Dionysus Gods.

So even if he was the Devil God, he was only hated by them, and compared to the Dionysus Gods of Heaven, Veld didn’t have much power.

On top of being weak, he was now their target, so he was in big trouble.

If the Dionysus Gods decided on it, it was only a matter of time before he went extinct.

So Veld had no choice but to hold his breath and take the insults.

It was best for him to keep his mouth shut and not irritate them.

“It’s not like going after him will solve this. Nothing will resolve this, but since we can’t just move on from this, we have to make that human pay!” One Dionysus God shouted.

And most of the other gods agreed.

The reason they had gathered was to get revenge.

They wanted to get revenge against Min Sung Kang who had taken most of their investment funds.

That was how the revenge meeting began.

They began to discuss which player to send over to the human world.

They shared different opinions, but they gradually came to an agreement.

They couldn’t just use the most powerful ranking player in Beatrice.

It was hard to convince them, and since it could lead to a fight, they had to pick an appropriate player.

And that was how they decided on their Beatrice player.

The Dionysus Gods decided to trust that player with this mission.

***

Ho Sung Lee thought seriously in Min Sung’s backyard.

Upon the cutting down of the Iris Tree, the dungeon disappeared, and the world was soon to be peaceful again.

So he couldn’t help but consider opening a restaurant so that he could make a living.

Of course, he could just continue to serve Min Sung or open a small restaurant, but he was still a hunter.

Even if the world was no longer threatened by monsters, he was still a hunter.

A hunter who opens a restaurant…?

Ho Sung Lee smoked his cigarette and looked up at the sky.

He then imagined it.

How he would look as a man operating a restaurant.

It made him laugh, but he didn’t think it was such a bad idea.

He then made his decision.

To become a chef.

To start a restaurant.

Once he made the decision, he felt relieved, and he even thought it would be fun.

‘… It’s not like I have a choice.’

Since there were no more monsters, what was the point in hunting?

Ho Sung Lee smirked and put out his cigarette. He returned to the house and sat on the sofa with black tea.

It was quiet and peaceful.

He could see the sun upon the backyard, and he heard birds chirping.

It finally hit him that he had returned to his regular life in the human world.

He was in Beatrice not long ago.

He had no idea he would be back so soon.

Ho Sung Lee drank his black tea with a smile.

‘Is this the end?’

“Why are you smiling like a pervert?” Bowl asked as he crawled up the sofa.

Ho Sung Lee sipped his black tea and glared down at Bowl.

“Hmph. Bowl, since you weren’t as active as me and didn’t play a big role in Beatrice, you wouldn’t understand.”

“You’re just a burden. If you weren’t there, maybe we would’ve returned to earth earlier.”

Ho Sung Lee was about to refute, but the thought that he could be right shut his mouth.

As soon as Bowl saw Ho Sung Lee’s face, he flipped over onto his back and laughed.

“Hey, Bowl.”

“Yeah?”

Bowl answered with his head buried in the sofa.

“Monsters probably won’t show up anymore, will they? There will only be small crimes now, right?”

“I don’t know.”

“Since the dungeons are gone and the monsters disappeared, it’s not dangerous anymore. Does that mean hunters aren’t hunters anymore?”

Ho Sung Lee thought about his fellow members of the Diamond Clan as he asked.

“Son of a b*tch, stop worrying about others and take care of Master.”

Ho Sung Lee laughed.

“Yeah. That was a stupid question.”

“Stop trying to act cool. It disgusts me. Why are you acting like this anyway? I’m losing my appetite.”

Ho Sung Lee stuck out his lip and glared at Bowl.

“Seriously. You can’t even eat food.”

Ho Sung Lee tickled Bowl’s side and Bowl rolled around snickering.

At that moment…

Roarrrrrr!

Along with a heavy sound, the ground shook as if there was an earthquake, and as a result, Ho Sung Lee and Bowl’s behavior froze as if time stopped.

The aftershock didn’t last long.

It disappeared quickly, but the noise was not a small one.

It was different from just a regular earthquake.

Ho Sung Lee and Bowl exchanged glances.

“…”

“…”

“What was that?”

Ho Sung Lee asked Bowl.

“Right?”

And Bowl agreed.

Ho Sung Lee blankly stared at the yard and then looked back at Bowl.

“Let’s go and check it out.”

“Okay.”

Ho Sung Lee sprung up and ran out, and Bowl also hopped down from the sofa and rode his shadow board to follow Ho Sung Lee.

As soon as Ho Sung Lee opened the front door, Bowl hung onto Ho Sung Lee’s waist, and at that moment, Ho Sung Lee stomped on the ground and took off.

Thump!

The ground was dented as Ho Sung Lee sprung up into the sky.

***

Beatrice’s 10th ranked player, Repone, was on the skinny side with long hair and a beautiful appearance.

And the Dionysus Gods stood around him.

“So… are you saying the restriction against the ranking challenge will be lifted if I just go to a star called Earth and kill Min Sung Kang?”

In response to Repone’s question, the Dionysus God in the front nodded.

“That’s correct.”

“That’s a great offer, but why are you asking me to do this?”

“Because we’re unable to enter the human world.”

“Hm. I see.”

Repone thought for a moment, and the Dionysus Gods watched him in anxiousness.

“I’m interested, but the conditions are a little lacking. If you add in one more favor, I’ll accept.”

“Tell us.”

“2000 experience points.”

“That’s no problem…”

“No, 2000 points from each god.”

The Dionysus Gods’ faces turned stiff.

“I guess we’ve asked the wrong person. You’re not the only one who is being considered.”

As soon as the Dionysus God tried to leave, Repone’s relaxed face showed restlessness.

“I’ll do it! But you have to give me a total of 50,000 experience points…”

Repone spoke cautiously, and upon exchanging glances, the Dionysus Gods nodded with dissatisfied faces.

Following the agreement, the Dionysus Gods handed him information about Min Sung Kang. They opened the gate to Earth and left.

Once the Dionysus Gods left, Repone, who was left alone in front of the gate, sighed.

“Why am I so bad at making deals? Everyone else does a good job. Sigh.”

Repone shook his head and as a result, his silky hair flowed with it.

Repone closed his eyes and calmed himself down.

His target was Min Sung Kang, and his mission was to kill him.

Since it was a simple mission, Repone decided to get it done as soon as possible as he threw himself through the blue gate.

Rippp!

Repone’s body got sucked into the gate in an instant.

***

A large green fragment was halfway through the ground.

It was around the entrance in the mountains, and around the ground were cracks in the shape of spider webs, but even those cracks gave off a green light.

A weak light began to turn into a darker green light before it gathered into one.

Ripppppppppp!

He created another portal gate.

Through that portal gate, Beatrice’s 10th ranking player, Repone, jumped out.

Upon stepping on the land of Earth, Repone glanced around him and took a look around.

He saw mountains that weren’t very high as well as a city full of buildings.

“So this must be Earth.”

When Repone muttered to himself, he sensed something coming toward him.

There were two of them.

‘Humans?’

Just as he thought that, Ho Sung Lee and Bowl appeared in front of Repone.

As soon as Ho Sung Lee and Bowl ran into Repone, they immediately stopped.

Repone looked at Ho Sung Lee and Bowl with his blue eyes and smiled.

“A human and a small skeleton. Seeing how you came here due to the impact, you must be players. Am I right?”

Upon seeing Repone, who was speaking in the language of Beatrice, Ho Sung Lee and Bowl froze up in place.

Repone took out the scroll that he received from the Dionysus Gods from his item window.

In that scroll were information about Min Sung Kang, and upon checking the information, Repone smiled.

According to the information, the human and the small skeleton in front of him were on the same side of his target, Min Sung Kang.

Repone put the scroll back into his item window. He walked toward Ho Sung Lee and Bowl and twinkled his blue eyes.

“Where’s the player named Min Sung Kang?”

“What do we do about this? We’ve invested most of our points on him…”

One Dionysus God sobbed, and the noises that followed from the other gods were not much different.

Some gods were mature about it, but since they were all gathered here, their faces were stiff.

And one of the Dionysus Gods, who showed a stiff face, looked at the crying gods as if they were pathetic.

“Doing that won’t make Min Sung Kang return to Beatrice, so stop crying and figure out how to…”

“What are you talking about? You’re the one with a face as red as an angry human!”

“Are you finished?”

“No!”

The two Dionysus gods broke out into a fight.

While the gods blamed each other, Veld watched from the corner like an outsider.

Since he was staying so quiet, the arrow was soon pointed at Veld as well.
