“What on…”

Kang Chul-In murmured, astonished.

It truly seemed there was nothing that couldn’t be done with money.

“Ha… Being poor is a crime, it seems.”

For the first time, Kang Chul-In sounded depressed.

To think that she would even buy strength with money… Lee Chae-Rin was truly the living example that money could buy literally everything.

“No.”

But Lee Chae-Rin shook her head.

“You can’t buy everything with money. Especially… things like love.”

“...?”

“A man that I know seems like he wouldn’t come over even if I spend tens and hundreds of dollars on him. He’s an iron wall.”

Saying that, Lee Chae-Rin involuntarily blushed. 

“Let’s fight.”

But Kang Chul-In ignored what Lee Chae-Rin said, and started to walk towards the bone dragon. Now wasn’t the time to be talking amongst themselves.

“Hmph!”

Lee Chae-Rin pouted.

------------

The fight between Kang Chul-In and the bone dragon changed as Lee Chae-Rin also collaborated.

Lee Chae-Rin chanted a spell, holding her ‘MoneyPay’ item.

Pzzt!

Crack!

Crack!!

With the sound of gold clattering, ‘they’ appeared.

Lee Chae-Rin!

Seeing this, Kang Chul-In’s eyes started to shine.

The existences that Lee Chae-Rin had just summoned were extremely useful in the current situation they were in.

The fierce-looking things covered in bright light… were called ‘electra’, and were intermediate light elementals. They were quite fit to be the helpers of Kang Chul-In in this situation, as they needed something of the light element to deal an effective blow to the bone dragon.

“Mr. Chul-In!”

Lee Chae-Rin shouted.

“I’ll also help!”

Even though it may be different at times, she was a powerful ally right now.

“Alright.”

Kang Chul-In answered, and continued to run towards the bone dragon.

-Kuooooo!!

The bone dragon roared, and met Kang Chul-In’s charge head-on.

At that moment.

Pzzt!

Bang!

The group of electras started to suicide bomb the bone dragon while it was occupied with Kang Chul-In.

Surprisingly, there weren’t just one or two electras that Lee Chae-Rin had called upon; there were nearly 50.

It was obvious that if that many electras suicide bombed the bone dragon, its defense would decrease by a significant amount.

Nice.

Looking at the damage done to the bone dragon, Kang Chul-In thought that it might very well be possible to take this monster down.

At that moment, Kang Chul-In jumped up.

Kuoooo!

And the energy of the Vortex started to flow out from Kang Chul-In’s hands.

The target was the bone dragon’s side, where the electras had suicide bombed themselves.

BANG!

Clack…

Some of the ribs of the bone dragon were broken into pieces, and the bones flew all around the place.

“Lee Chae-Rin, the head! Aim for its head!”

Kang Chul-In shouted.

In order to kill the bone dragon, they had to aim for its ‘Death Core’, which was located in its skull.

“Okay!”

Lee Chae-Rin waved her staff, and commanded the electras to attack.

-Pzzt!

Understanding what Lee Chae-Rin wanted to do, the electras all rushed to the head of the bone dragon, before exploding.

BANG, BANG!

It was as if lightning had struck.

Clack, Clack…

At the relentless attack of the electras, the bone dragon started to wobble and scream in pain.

I need to finish it in one blow.

Kang Chul-In moved around the bone dragon, and waited for the perfect timing to attack.

The bone dragon had a special ability to berserk and increase in strength by 3 times when it received a certain amount of damage. 

If that happened? 

They wouldn’t be able to do anything to stop the bone dragon.

There was also a possibility of it running away, so that was another problem.

As a former dragon, the bone dragon was able to fly.

It would be almost impossible to catch since Kang Chul-In himself couldn’t fly.

This was his only chance. He had to destroy the core of the bone dragon when it was dazed and weakened by the continuous attack of the electras.

Bang!

The final electra exploded itself on the skull of the bone dragon.

Tzzt…

And a crack appeared on the giant skull of the bone dragon. 

Now!

Kang Chul-In rushed out like a bullet.

Tat!

Kang Chul-In jumped over 15 meters, and fell towards the bone dragon.

Pzzt, Pzzt!

With all of his mana concentrated onto his fist, Kang Chul-In aimed at the skull of the bone dragon. It seemed possible to destroy the skull and the core if this attack landed.

But,

Shooo-!

With a terrifying sound…

BANG!

A missile came out of nowhere and exploded onto the back of the bone dragon.

“What the…”

Kang Chul-In’s face was full of shock.

And soon after, the flames that occurred due to the explosion of the missile covered Kang Chul-In.

“M-Mr. Chul-in!”

Lee Chae-Rin let out a scream that almost sounded like wailing.

---------

1 minute ago…

Watching the fight between Kang Chul-In and the bone dragon on a giant monitor, the Chief of Staff and the highest-ranked military officer in South Korea, Oh Se-Min, sighed and gave an order.

“Shoot it.”

At this command, lieutenant general Ko Yong-Chan tried to stop Oh Se-Min.

“That man… that’s Kang Chul-In from the Galaxy Corporation…”

“...So?”

“Sorry?”

“Kang Chul-In or whatever, is that guy the one feeding us and giving us money?”

“...!”

“Have you seen the news? What do you think is going to happen to our positions if we leave this be?”

There was a reason Oh Se-Min was so sensitive and angry right now.

[The Army, Unable To Save The Civilians From Monsters.]

[Vs. The Monsters, What Did The Army Do?]

[The Useless Army, The Useful Adventurers.]

[The Struggling Army… Is The Galaxy Corporation The Only One To Trust?]

Currently, the army was getting criticised by the mass media.

It made sense.

It had been 3 hours since the monster invasion had begun, and the army was completely powerless.

During the time that they weren’t doing anything, the adventurers came and cut down the monsters one by one, and became the heroes of the civilians.

“Do you want to see me, and all the people in here, lose our positions?”

“But chief, this doesn’t make sense! We should talk to the adventurers and co-operate with…”

“SHUT UP!”

Oh Se-Min shouted, and stopped lieutenant Ko Yong-Chan’s words midway.

“Hey, Ko Yong-Chan. I’m the one in charge here. So. Shut. Up. Okay?”

“...”

“Stupid bastard… I don’t understand how you got your position with that stupid head…”

After Oh Se-Min stared at Ko Yong-Chan with disgusted eyes, 

“Hey, operations manager.”

“Colonel, Jung! Sung! Hoon!”

“From this moment onward, we will respond with the Panzerfaust 3. Tell that to everyone.”

“Yes, understood!”

“And…”

Oh Se-Min looked at Kang Chul-In and the bone dragon once more.

“Tell them to shoot. That Kang whatever, just shoot him too. If news comes out, tell the media that he was ignoring our warnings, and staying near the monster.”

“...Understood.”

“Same for the other adventurers.”

Oh Se-Min added.

“We ignore the safety of the adventurers. Make sure we attack first. I will take responsibility and talk to the people of the Blue House.”

“...Understood.”

Even though colonel Jung felt disgusted at Oh Se-Min’s methods, it was impossible for him to ignore the words of the joint chief of staff. 

“Sea Eagle, Sea Eagle.”

-Nest, nest. This is Sea Eagle, over.”

“Sea Eagle, current time: 11: 20. An order has been given.”

And soon after the command was given, the ‘hellfire missile’ otherwise known as the AGM-114M Hellfire II hit the back of the bone dragon, and cheers could be heard in the board office.

But, as the flames subsided and the bone dragon that was now covered in black appeared…

“D-Don’t tell me…”

“Even after getting hit…”

“No way…”

The soldiers that were watching couldn’t hide their shock.

The bone dragon roared fiercely, its eyes having a terrifying reddish glow that it didn’t have before. 

-Kuoooooo!!

It was obvious that it just entered its berserk mode.

-Krrr…

The bone dragon stared at the attack helicopter that had just shot a missile towards it,

Clack…

Before spreading its withered wings,

BANG!!

And flying and attacking the attack helicopter at unbelievable speeds.
