Chapter 146. Old man Kwon’s request.

“I didn’t notice before, but you have quite a weird habit of getting angry for something trivial at times.”

Kang Chul-In stared at old man Kwon, speechless.

“Huh? I do?”

“I mean, why is your face red in anger over such a small thing?”

Truly, old man Kwon’s response was quite strange.

An old man that hadn’t raised a single dog before was suddenly asking for a pet from him?

“Well… that’s because I want a pet from Pangaea…”

“Then, why don’t you just buy one from an adventurer? It’s not like you don’t have the money… Do you want me to ask for some?”

“Of course, you might think that. It makes sense that you are quite astonished since I’m giving you a large sum of money for this.”

“That’s right.”

Kang Chul-In nodded.

“But no matter how much I think about it, you’re the only that can help me get a pet that I want.”

“...?”

“As you may already know, it’s kind of a trend, raising pets from Pangaea.”

This was something that had occurred after the dimensional gate appeared.

When the people from Earth changed Pangaea, things from Pangaea also came to Earth and changed people’s lives.

This was the same for pets.

The strange and mysterious pets from Pangaea were a step above the ones on Earth.

Talking cats, unicorns, and even spirits like the salamander. There were so many things that would make a mere cat or dog look normal in comparison.

“But the thing is… I don’t have a pet myself.”

“Then buy one? You can buy one, so why are you asking me? Don’t tell me that you’re going to take all the money you’ve gotten and take it with you to your grave…”

When Kang Chul-In said that, old man Kwon’s body shivered involuntarily. Was this young man in front of him trying to take his entire fortune?

“T-That’s not true. Of course I’m planning on spending it before I die.”

“Dammit.”

Kang Chul-In muttered. 

W-Was he for real…

Cold sweat running down his back, old man Kwon once again realized how great Kang Chul-In’s appetite for money was.

“What’s the problem, then?”

“Well… there’s a club that I’m part of. It’s a kind of Silver Club.”

“Is that a sort of college for old people?”

“Well, it’s sort of different. If you want to join this club, even having 100 million dollars won’t be enough.”

“...Of course.”

It seemed like there was a group of old, rich people that had a hobby of raising Pangaean pets.

“The people in our club go around showing off their own pets, but me… I don’t have a pet! Does that make sense? Think about it. My partner isn’t a random adventurer; it’s you. This isn’t befitting of a powerful person like you.”

“Ah, I understand now.”

Kang Chul-In nodded.

“So basically… you wanna raise a pet, but it’d be kind of shameful and lame to raise an ordinary one… So you want me to get you a precious and rare one.”

“Exactly! That stupid Kim… Just because he has some stupid dark leopard cubs he dares to ignore me and show off in front of me like that? Just wait, I’ll definitely tear…”

Though a dark leopard wasn’t an extremely powerful breed, it was precious and famed for its incredible speed and beautiful fur.

“Anyway, to crush that Kim… I need a pet that’s better and more precious than a Dark Leopard. Alright?”

“Don’t tell me...”

“Huh?”

“Is that Kim you’re talking about… President Kim Hyun-Sung of the Gusung company?”

“H-How’d you know that?”

“...It’s a female then.”

“What?”

“The pet of that Kim Hyun-Sung is from her daughter, who is an adventurer. Her pet is a Dark Leopard.”

“I-Is that so? Don’t tell me that you won’t… be able to get something more precious than a Dark Leopard…”

Old man Kwon said, his face downcast. It seemed like he really wanted to show off in front of that President Kim.

“Though it will take some time, I’ll get you a beast that’s more precious than a Dark Leopard. But it’ll take at least a month or two.”

“Really?”

“...?”

“Kuhahaha~!”

Old man Kwon started laughing.

“As expected of you! Who can I make such a request to, other than you! Haha!”

“...”

“Yep, what worth is a mere 40 million when you’re letting me show off in front of that stupid Kim? Kuhahaha~! Just you wait, stupid Kim!”

Old man Kwon laughed, seemingly fantasizing about showing off in front of President Kim of the Gusung company.

What is this? It's like they’re kids showing off their toys.

Kang Chul-In shook his head, looking at old man Kwon. They said that when a man grew old, they would grow childish, and this was a perfect example of that.

“Oh, and…”

Old man Kwon added.

“Is… a dragon impossible? If I was able to have a charismatic beast like a black dragon as my pet…”

Old man Kwon spoke, excited.

“Everyone will…”

It seemed as if he really wanted to become the owner of a dragon. And not just a normal dragon, but the black dragon, which was famed to be the fiercest of all dragons. 

“Old man.”

Kang Chul-In interrupted old man Kwon’s words, speechless.

“Huh?”

“Do you hate society?”

“...?”

“I don’t think it’d be a bad idea to transport a black dragon here if you want to make the nearby areas disappear. Maybe your name will go up in a history book as the crazy psychopath that destroyed all of Seoul.”

“I-Is it that bad?”

“Of course.”

Kang Chul-In nodded.

At this time, who else but Kang Chul-In knew the true might of a dragon?

A magical barrier that bullets would definitely be unable to pierce through. Terrifying magic called ‘breath’, and added to a large body at around 60m tall, the dragon was an absolutely terrifying monster.

Kang Chul-In predicted that even if a bunch of F-22 jet fighters tried to fight against the dragon, they wouldn’t be able to do anything. A dragon was a monster that was terrifying to deal with, unless one had equally terrifying power.

“If there’s someone that can control dragons like that, as pets… They would be a god. And not only that.”

“And?”

“It’s practically impossible to tame a dragon. And the black dragon that you said earlier is the fiercest of the bunch. It’d definitely be impossible to tame.”

“Haha, to say that someone who controls dragons is a god? Isn’t that an overstatement? It’s not like you’ve actually seen a dragon before… Huhu~. It seems like a serious man like you also knows how to make jokes?”

Old man Kwon laughed.

Stupid old man.

Though it annoyed him somewhat, Kang Chul-In ignored old man Kwon’s response.

“Old man.”

“W-What is it… stop staring at me like that.”

“If you don’t know, then don’t talk.”

“..........”

“Let’s not continue about the dragons anymore.”

Kang Chul-In cut the conversation.

D-Don’t tell me… he’s actually seen a dragon?

Feeling something strange in Kang Chul-In’s gaze, old man Kwon thought. 

“I’m going now. I’ll send you the pet as soon as I can.”

Kang Chul-In turned away.

“Huh? You’re going already? C’mon, have a drink with me!”

“I’m busy.”

“What are you doing that makes you so busy?”

“I’m going to get money.”

“...Whose money are you trying to rip off this time.”

And Kang Chul-In answered simply.

“Well, I’ve found out that when you’re running out of money, hunting Lords is a good way to make more.”

“H-Hmm? What do you mean?

D-Don’t tell me… Are you planning on starting a war in that other world?”

“I mean, why not?”

Kang Chul-In answered nonchalantly.

T-This crazy guy! He’s going to start a war to take their money?

The old man’s face turned pale.

Even though he knew Kang Chul-In was a terrifying person, he didn’t think that it would be to this extent.

Saying that, Kang Chul-In left old man Kwon behind. He didn’t need to tell him the truth.

-------

After returning to Pangaea, Kang Chul-In immediately summoned his officials.

That was right.

If he lacked money, he could take it.

The Lord hunter, the Overlord Kang Chul-In, would now start his conquest in order to take the money of the other Lords!
