Chapter 104. Entering the Valhalla Dungeon

Kim Sung-hee couldn’t believe her eyes. 

‘W-With just the two of them…!’

The sight of Kang Chul-In and Dorian combining forces to fight off the 500+ men of Alex Rothschild was much too shocking for her.

Not only that, but...

‘I tried to fight against that man…?’

Now realizing that she had severely and incredibly underestimated Kang Chul-In’s strength, she couldn’t lift her head.

‘Hah… how stupid and arrogant must I have seemed to him? I must have been crazy.’

She wasn’t an idiot.

Though she was known as the daughter to a major conglomerate in Korea and was born with a gold spoon in her mouth, she wasn’t someone that couldn’t think for herself.

“Hey, eyewitness!”

Kang Chul-In called her from afar. 

“...Yes?”

At the word ‘eyewitness’, Kim Sung-hee’s face stiffened.

“W-Wait a minute!”

Almost wetting her pants out of fear, Kim Sung-hee started to take slow steps backwards.

“P-Please…! Can you spare me just this one time?”

Kim Sung-hee realized that in Pangaea, her status as the daughter of a big, powerful company was of no use whatsoever.

She knew that her life was in the hands of Kang Chul-In.

Pft---

Kang Chul-In smirked.

“...!”

Kim Sung-hee froze in place, scared of what would come next.

“I like the fact that you aren’t too stupid and dull. At least you don’t want to die, huh?”

Kang Chul-In said.

“T-Then…!”

“Hey, you fly.”

Kang Chul-in once again called out. 

“Fly?”

“Yeah, you. I called you a fly because you keep buzzing around us like a mosquito or a fly would. If you don’t like it, then…”

‘He called me a fly… But, I’m still a girl, you know? How can he be so mean…’

Although Kim Sung-hee’s pride was deflated…

“N-No, it’s alright. You might not know my name, right?”

She could still endure it. At least she could keep her precious life. 

“Kim Sung-hee, right?”

“Yes…”

“I know your name.”

Hearing this, Kim Sung-hee tried her best to suppress her anger, and looked at Kang Chul-In’s face, speechless.

‘How can someone be so frustrating and annoying?!’

Looking at Kang Chul-In’s slight smile, Kim Sung-hee tried her best to calm herself down.

Kang Chul-In then continued with, 

“Hey, I need you to complete a task for me.”

Kang Chul-In wanted to use Kim Sung-hee.

He would try and use her to put Aleister into a trap.

-----

“This is a chance for you, fly.”

Kang Chul-In wanted to make a deal with her.

“This task… this task is an opportunity?”

“Yeah.”

“I don’t understand? How will a task you give me be an opportunity?”

As the words ‘opportunity’ and ‘chance’ piqued her interest, Kim Sung-hee futhered inquired.

“I’ll give you strength.”

“...!”

“It seems like you want to get stronger, no? Of course, it will be nigh impossible for you to become as powerful as me, or even this pushover over here.”

Kang Chul-In stared at Dorian and spoke.

“I already told you, I’m not a pushover…!”

“Whatever you say, pushover.”

Kang Chul-In didn’t care whether Dorian got upset or not.

“I’ll make you two to three times stronger than you are now.”

“...Really?”

“Of course.”

“If that’s the case, it must be a very difficult ‘task’.”

“Of course it is. This is a task where you need to put your life on the line. If you are able to complete it successfully, I’ll make you stronger. But if you fail…”

“I would die?”

“No.”

“No?”

“You would suffer a fate even worse than dying.”

Kim Sung-hee couldn’t understand what kind of task required her to take a risk that was ‘worse than dying’.

‘This is madness!’

Although she wanted to reject this offer right now…

‘...He might kill me if I reject this proposal. I’m an eyewitness, after all.’

“Are you scared?”

“Yes... of course I am.”

“Then don’t do it.”

“But if I reject it…”

“I won’t kill you.”

“Of course you won’t… Huh?!”

Kim Sung-hee was startled.

“Really? You won’t kill me?”

Kim Sung-hee then realized how insignificant she was in the eyes of Kang Chul-In, and how she was just a small, passing existence.

“Then, can I hear the contents of the task first?”

“Don’t ask me. My thoughts are that if you truly wanted to become powerful, you wouldn’t care about the methods. So, I’ll ask you one last time. Will you do it?”

Kang Chul-In had a tendency to look at people who stayed true to their desires on a high pedestal, and Kim Sung-hee was someone who fit that criteria well.

“...Yes, I think I will.”

-------

After washing their bloodied bodies in a nearby stream, Kang Chul-In and Dorian immediately headed into the underground passage that leads to the Valhalla dungeon.

‘It’s been a while’.

Kang Chul-In reminisced of the past, remembering ‘the old days’ before he had reincarnated.

But…

This sensation didn’t last for too long.

Because suddenly, a message popped up in front of his eyes.

[Can you handle ‘their’ rage and hatred?]
