Chapter 51


The media in each country reported the news that the first second class had appeared.

South Korea.

<Did you know that there was a second class? When a second class is obtained, the user has access to a wider range of weapons, skills and stats. In addition, every level up will give two additional stat points. Reporter Cho Sungjin will give more details. Reporter Cho Sungjin.>

<This is Cho Sungjin. At 1 a.m. today, information from the S.A. Group was released, revealing that the first second class was obtained in Satisfy. The type of second class hasn’t been revealed yet, but experts predict that there is so much content in Satisfy that a myriad of second classes exist. The biggest advantage of getting a second class is that 12 stat points instead of 10 will be obtained with each level up...>

The United States.

<James, what is the identity of the first second class that emerged?>

<The S.A Group said that is isn’t willing to disclose information about the second class that appeared. This is a decision to protect the information of the person who acquired the second class...>

The United Kingdom.

<I just received incredible breaking news. The first person who obtained the second class is from Mongolia.>

<They’re from Mongolia? Do Mongols even know what Satisfy is?>

<Haha, these statistics definitely show that Mongols aren’t interested in Satisfy. In most developed countries, around 60% of the population is playing Satisfy. Meanwhile, only 3% of the Mongolian population is playing Satisfy.>

<Oh dear... According to this statistic, our UK has 68% of the population playing Satisfy? This 68% of the British population couldn’t acquire a second class, yet someone in Mongolia did... The British are advertising to the world that they aren’t talented in the game.>

China.

<The S.A. Group is renowned for thoroughly managing their customer’s information. Experts speculate that the information about the first second class being obtained by a Mongolian user was spread in order to promote Satisfy in Mongolia.>

<It is clear that the S.A. Group intends to dominate the world with Satisfy. Then intend to make everyone in the world slaves to Satisfy. Later on, the whole world might be dancing in the S.A. Group’s hands. People will need treatment for Satisfy addiction...>

Japan.

<I’m proud that it’s an Asian who acquired the first second class. When will a second class user be born in Japan?>

<As you know, 71% of Japan’s population is enjoying Satisfy. There are many Japanese people who are playing Satisfy. Didn’t a Japanese person obtain an epic class a few months ago? I expect a Japanese person to be the second user to obtain a second class.>

<Doesn’t Korea have 73% of its population playing Satisfy? According to population ratio, Koreans enjoy Satisfy the most. Is there any possibility that the owner of the second user to obtain a second class will be born in Korea?>

<...Perhaps the S.A. Group will help a Korean obtain it...>

<There are no successful Korean users except for Yura, who is ranked 5th on the unified rankings. This is ironic, considering that Satisfy is a game made by a Korean company.>

<Speaking of which, there is a rumor that the S.A. Group is sponsoring Yura.>

<Is that so? What is the source of the rumor?> 

<That... on the net...>

<Please refrain from making unfounded remarks. The slightest slip can cause an international issue.>

<I’m sorry...>

People’s interest in the second class was so high that the media from all over the world organized a special program for the first second class.

On the other hand, Shin Youngwoo sighed after escaping from the dungeon, leaving Rabbit and logging out. As soon as he opened his eyes, he sat in front of the TV, boiled ramyun and trembled as he watched the news.

“I’m really envious... Getting two more stat points with every level up, isn’t that completely a scam? What bastard got a second class? Ah, damn. I’m sick from envy.”

Shin Youngwoo couldn’t even imagine that he knew the first person who acquired the second class.

***

The whole family gathered for dinner.

I declared in front of my family, “I won’t go to the labor office anymore.”

It was a bolt from the blue!

"My son Youngwoo. You finally got a job? Great, my son! I believed in you.”

“Wow, Oppa! Are you going to be an employee now? Congratulations! What should I prepare as a celebration gift?”

"Sob sob, Mother has been heartbroken in the meantime from all your suffering at the construction sites. Haven’t you gone through a lot of trouble so far?”

I expected such reactions from my family. But reality was cruel.

Tak! There was a loud sound as my father placed the spoon down on the table.

"Are you going to start your life again?”

My mother sighed. "No matter how hard you work... How will you pay back the debt in the future and what will you do about marriage...?”

Sehee clicked her tongue. "How can an adult be so selfish? Are you thinking about relying on our parents until you’re old? Oppa is terrible, how pathetic.”

Unbelievable... Was this my family?

“Who is planning on playing around at home?” I exclaimed. "Why do you think that stopping the labor jobs is a sign of giving up? Why don’t you think that your son and your Oppa has found a new job?”

Sehee’s eyes widened like she was really surprised. “What? Oppa got a new job? There is a place that will accept Oppa?”

My mother spoke to herself. “Perhaps it is a job at a convenience store...? A convenience store job is easy, but the hourly rate is less than the labor jobs...”

My father asked me with a serious face. “Youngwoo, you haven’t been deceived by a friend and dragged into a multi-level company like last time?”

“Hey! It isn’t anything like that! I have an incredibly good job!”

“What is it?”

“It is a professional gamer. I will make money from the game! Don’t you know that I’m a blacksmith in the game? This is a really good job and I can sell my items for an expensive price. With a little more luck, I can earn the equivalent of a CEO salary someday. A great merchant in the game has promised to support me.”

“...”

In the sudden silence, my father spoke in an angry voice. "...So you want to stay home and play games?”

What? Why was he mad?

"It is easy to say. The more I play the game, the more money I can earn. Maybe I should live in the capsule all day. Hehe.”

Ttaak!

“Keook...!”

The spoon flew and hit my forehead. My mother gave my father a new spoon and he threw it at my forehead again.

“Ack! Why? Why all of a sudden?”

"Tomorrow, go to the labor office.”

"No, why? Didn’t you hear my words? I will make money from the game!”

My mother wiped at her tears. "Gosh, your brother is really serious. You shouldn’t be like this, Sehee.”

What was my mother saying?

Sehee bit her lip angrily and shouted, “Please grow up, Oppa! You’re going to make money from the game? Haven’t you been playing for the past year? And your debt has only increased! Face reality!”

"No... it’s different now. I have a new fate now that I’m a blacksmith... I’ve gone through a lot of things and now the best merchant will help me...”

"Stop talking about the game! The game is a joke!”

“...”

I tried to explain the details but they didn’t listen to me. As I looked at the dark scene of chaos unfolding in front of me, I realized my family wouldn’t believe me even if I explained it properly.

Then the next morning. Due to my crying mother, I had to change clothes and go to the workplace. I took a labor job and worked out the plan for the rest of my life. I needed to level up and complete the class quest, but the most important thing was making money.

‘First, let’s accept Rabbit’s proposal.’

I didn’t know yet how Rabbit would help me get rich. But I was sure that it wasn’t an exaggeration. He was the second highest ranked person in the Mero Company, so he was obviously great. It would be good to trust him as a business partner. 

‘If I use Khan’s smithy as a base, I can be very comfortable... Well, I hope to have more time to play the game. But first of all, I need to make money inside the game so that my parents will apologize.’

Satisfy news could be found at any time when turning on the TV or Internet. My parents should’ve come across people who became world famous or rich through Satisfy.  But nevertheless, they didn’t think I could make money with Satisfy. As Sehee said, it was because I spent one year... no, to be exact, I spent a year and a month already playing Satisfy.

'It isn’t unreasonable that they don’t trust me... I need proof to persuade my parents.’

That evening. I came home from work and immediately connected to Satisfy. Then I went to Khan’s smithy.

“Ohh, welcome Grid!”

Khan greeted me with an incredibly bright expression. It wasn’t just him. The anxiety on all the faces of the residents that I passed by had disappeared.

‘Is Winston at peace? It looks like Euphemina and Rabbit did a good job.’

I asked Khan, "Has Rabbit came here?”

Khan’s expression darkened. "Um... this letter arrived for you.”

Khan handed me a letter. I read it.

[Mr. Grid.

This is Rabbit. Earl Steim couldn’t excuse all the sins I committed against the people of Winston when I was still part of the Mero Company, so I couldn’t receive a full pardon. My business plan with you is in vain. Mr Grid, with your abilities, you will become the richest person with your own strength. Please ask for Khan’s advice and make wonderful items. Khan’s artistic sense will be a great help to you. I will watch your myth from a distance and sincerely pray for your success.] 

“Eh?”

What was this?
