Solo leveling Light Novel : 133

Did he hear that right? Jin-Woo ended up doubting his own hearing, then .

Cha Hae-In was the Vice-Master of South Korea's top Guild, and her skills were ranked to be among the absolute best , but she willingly walked into a Guild that hadn't even taken its first baby step yet?

Unless she was being threatened into coming here, how could this example make any sense? on the other hand again . . . .

'Uh, well, just who'd be brave enough to threaten her?'

Jin-Woo decided to mention the one person with enough clout to potentially threaten her in South Korea .

"Did the Association President order you to try to to this?"

Cha Hae-In formed a confused expression, evidently not understanding why Goh Gun-Hui was being mentioned during this discussion .

"Why would he . . . . ?"

It was Jin-Woo who couldn't understand what was happening here, so why was she making that face albeit she was the rationale for all this confusion?

'No, hang on . Let's settle down . '

It was a situation where most of the people would've been left too stunned or get overexcited, but Jin-Woo was ready to stay calm as he pulled out a chair to take a seat on Cha Hae-In's opposite side . He then wordlessly stared at her .

He only needed to focus for a brief while . because the time visibly bogged down in his perception, various bits of data about her flowed into his brain, one at the time .

'She's restless . '

Her heartbeat, her breathing, even the glow within her eyes . She was doing her best to seem composed, but there was no fooling Jin-Woo's sky-high Perception .

So, the question was – why was she forcing herself to the present extent and trying to enter the tentatively-named 'Solo Play' Guild?

Jin-Woo had to ask her .

"Don't you continue to have a while left within the duration of your contract with the Hunters Guild?"

Now normally, the Guild would negotiate contracts with Hunters in five-year terms . Cha Hae-In joined the Hunters Guild two years ago when she was evaluated to be a rank S, so at a bare minimum, she should still have three years left in her contract .

"I have enough money to pay the penalty for breach of contract . "

Cha Hae-In's collected answer only elicited Jin-Woo's head-tilting .

Most of the time, such a penalty fee would be between two to 3 times the first signing fee .

Thinking about the exorbitant sum the Hunters Guild must've forked call at order to check in a rank S Hunter like her, one didn't got to be a genius to work out that the breach of contract penalty fee would be absolutely horrendous, as well .

Since he was close to speak to her about harsh reality, Jin-Woo's attitude became very business-like .

"Our 'Solo Play' Guild simply can't afford to pay the type of signing fee your skill set warrants, Cha Hunter-nim . "

"T-the name of your Guild is 'Solo Play'??"

"You have a drag with the name that the Vice-Master and myself came up with?"

" . . . No, not really . "

Cha Hae-In let a soft sigh shake her, and continued on .

"It doesn't matter . It's fine if you do not pay me the contract signing fee . "

She didn't mind signing a contract with none payment, albeit she'd need to pay a huge breach of contract fee to the Hunters Guild?

'What is she scheming here?'

Jin-Woo's eyes narrowed to a slit .

When their eyes stayed locked for a short time , Cha Hae-In could not endure the silent pressure and averted her gaze . Her heart was beating a step faster than before, too .

Jin-Woo's ears perked up . His acute sense of hearing didn't miss out on one change happening inside her .

'Is she hiding something?'

At now , he simply had to ask her or he'd die of curiosity .

"Why are you willing to travel through such a wringer just to hitch our Guild?"

" . . . . "

As expected, Cha Hae-In couldn't easily answer him and kept her mouth resolutely shut . And seeing her face redden like that, it became oh-so-obvious that she was hiding something from him, too .

'Wait a moment . . . '

Now that he considered it, he remembered sensing that something was different about her even back within the funeral venue . He couldn't tell what she was thinking of, but she could are getting to do that for quite a while already .

Jin-Woo quietly waited for Cha Hae-In's answer . However, she kept her head lowered and for an extended while, didn't say one word .

'… . But, how am i able to even explain myself to him?

… . That I sensed your presence next to me even after I lost my consciousness from the attack of that mutated ant monster?

… . That, I felt safe and warm after learning on your scent as I sank deeper into an empty and endless dark void?'

There was no word during this world adequate enough to explain what she felt some time past .

'Even if I explain it, he'd only say that I've gone mad . '

Her heart began beating faster after she learned of Hunter Seong Jin-Woo really being there . She felt so relieved, knowing that she wasn't imagining things .

And also . . . .

'What if . . . . '

She discovered that she wanted Jin-Woo to be by her side within the worst case scenario of her being unable to flee from the cold blade of death .

'… . To think, it would be like 'please be right by my side until my final moments' . '

How could she even attempt saying that, when just brooding about it made her blush uncontrollably?

That was an impossible task for Cha Hae-In who didn't know anything a few normal girl's sensibilities . That was why she finally spoke up a solution she cooked up before coming here .

" . . . To be easier . "

She raised her head to satisfy Jin-Woo's gaze and continue on with the remainder .

"I wish to be live more comfortably . . . . "

Although it wasn't exactly what she tried to mention , it wasn't an entire lie, either .

She couldn't even lift her head properly from all the horrendous stink when high-ranked Hunters were standing next to her . But, in contrast, she felt her mind getting peaceful within the presence of Jin-Woo .

The meaning of Cha Hae-In's 'comfortable' was precisely that .

Jin-Woo didn't interpret the meaning that way, but still, he could understand where she was coming from . He slowly nodded his head from her answer .

She apparently wanted to go away an enormous Guild just like the Hunters, and spend a more 'comfortable' time during a far smaller Guild like his .

According to Jin-Woo's knowledge, Cha Hae-In was either twenty-two or twenty-three years old .

'I'm sure the burden that a rank S must carry would be pretty heavy for a lady in her early twenties . '

Especially more so, after she felt the threat of death during the Jeju Island raid .

Jin-Woo could easily understand her feelings as he too felt like abandoning everything and deed from it all countless times, back when he still worked for the Association .

Unfortunately for her . . . .

'Although her plight is pitiable, but . . . . . '

But, he couldn't just accept her like that .

Why would he have named the Guild 'Solo Play'? That was because he planned to book dungeons using the name of his Guild and clear all of them by himself .

If the minimum number of team members proved to be a obstacle , then he'd simply hire temps to fill the headcount, a bit like how it had been back when he cleared those rank C Gates with Yu Jin-Ho . That was the neatest thing to try to to in his quest to level up higher .

However, if Cha Hae-In entered the image , things would become rather complicated in some ways . albeit they ditch her contract signing fee, wouldn't she still need money for her daily necessities?

By hiring a rank S Hunter with huge salaries, someone he didn't even need within the first place and wasn't getting to put to figure either, he'd be committing a huge wastage on a national scale .

However . . .

'If I reject a rank S Hunter who's willing to waive the contract signing fee and join my Guild without a correct reason, it's getting to look pretty suspicious . '

That was why Jin-Woo quickly came up with an idea .

"Actually, our Guild has an admittance test you would like to travel through . "

"Pardon? But, the work posting didn't specify anything li . . . . "

Jin-Woo quickly stop Cha Hae-In's flustered words .

"This rule is pretty new, so it's possible that the Vice-Master may have made alittle error . "

The glow in Cha Hae-In's eyes became quite serious at the mention of a test .

"What quite a test is it?"

Jin-Woo was inwardly taken all of sudden from her reaction .

'This gal, she was really serious?'

Because of her professional pride, he expected her to quit after being told about taking a test . However, Cha Hae-In acted the precise opposite . No, she was actually burning up even hotter with the will to win .

He could sense her fervour hidden behind that expressionless mask of hers .

'Is she the sort to face any fight coming her way head on?'

Or, was this the case of misplaced pride?

Whatever the case may are , Jin-Woo couldn't backtrack now while staying it had been all a misunderstanding .

"It's to win against the summoned creature I pick . "

Crack .

He swore that he heard the physical sound of a crack forming on her ego .

" . . . . "

'Seong Jin-Woo Hunter-nim, is that how low your assessment of me is?'

What a mysterious thing this was . He only looked into her eyes briefly, yet it felt like her voice might be heard so clearly inside his head .

However, Cha Hae-In didn't display any of her thoughts and asked in her usual collected manner .

"Which summon will you pick?"

"For you, Cha Hunter-nim, I'll especially need to pick the strongest one . "

" . . . . . Alright . "

She wasn't backing down here .

Most likely, she wouldn't have dreamed it in her wildest imaginations, regarding who became the newest addition to Jin-Woo's summoned creatures – no, his Shadow Army collection .

Jin-Woo thought that, since her will to win was so strong, she'd hand over on her own after tasting defeat . He immediately agreed to the bout .

"Okay, let's roll in the hay . "

"When will the test be?"

"Right now . "

Jin-Woo wanted to determine his Guild as soon as possible, so he didn't want to waste any longer time on Cha Hae-In . Since he came up with this concept , might also roll in the hay now .

The location would be the gymnasium of the Hunter's Association .

A rank S Hunter could hire out the gymnasium whenever he felt love it . it had been one among the various special privileges afforded to rank S Hunters .

"Got it . "

Cha Hae-In nodded her head . She too wanted to maneuver things along as quickly as possible . They both stood up at an equivalent time as if they made a promise to try to to that .

'… . Hold on . '

It was then, a particular thought flashed past his brain . He quickly called bent Cha Hae-In as she was close to turn the door handle .

"Cha Hunter-nim, please wait . "


"There's no got to go that way . "

" . . . ?"

Cha Hae-In formed a confused expression .

There was just one door within the conference suite . He obviously wasn't suggesting that they ought to leap out of the window, so . . . .

Jin-Woo quickly walked over to her unmoving frame .

"I have a quicker way of getting there, actually . "

"Excuse me?"

"But, i need to be touching you if I'm to use this method, so will it's alright with you?"

"Oh . . . . . "

Cha Hae-In recalled what Baek Yun-Ho told her about things some time past . He said that, as all the members of the Korean assault team found themselves during a life-or-death situation, Hunter Seong Jin-Woo suddenly popped up behind him .

'Is he trying to point out me that skill?'

She quickly swallowed her dry saliva and searched at Jin-Woo's face that was now much closer than her initial expectations .

"Sorry about this . "

Jin-Woo lightly embraced her .

He thought that such a light-weight hug wouldn't mean anything to her since he had carried her unconscious frame around inside the ant tunnel, but Cha Hae-In's face was rapidly dyeing during a beet-red colour .

However, she didn't struggle or attempt to get out of his embrace .

'… . His nice scent . '

While her face was getting progressively redder and redder, Jin-Woo cautiously held her to form sure they would not get separated and finished preparing .

'Okay, all done . '

There was this thing he wanted to verify . And he wouldn't find nearly as good a chance as this one within the future .

"It might get a touch dizzy . "

Well, he felt that the primary time, so there .

Cha Hae-In only then wrapped her arms around Jin-Woo and whispered her reply .

"Okay . "

Jin-Woo raised his head to his front and issued a command in his mind .

'Shadow Exchange . '

Shururu . . . . .

Two of them soundlessly got sucked into the shadow beneath their feet .

It was right at that moment Yu Jin-Ho opened the door and entered the conference suite . He ran bent the local shop to shop for some refreshments after thinking that the talk might continue for a touch .

"Please, drink these while you two ch . . . . "

A High Orc Shadow Soldier met Yu Jin-Ho's gaze, and as if he was feeling a touch sheepish over something, scratched the rear of his head .

" . . . . "


The tray in Yu Jin-Ho's hand crashed to the ground , and cups of liquid refreshment shattered from the impact .

"W-what the hell?!"

Yu Jin-Ho freaked out grandly and blinked his eyes, but the High Orc soldier was gone without a trace .

'B-b-but, I definitely . . . . !!'

He rubbed his eyes hard and shook his head to regain his composure . He took another check out his surroundings, but he couldn't spot one trace of the monster anywhere .

'… . i assume i have been working too hard recently . '

Yup, that has got to be it, what with seeing a hallucination and every one .

Yu Jin-Ho tilted his head and scanned the conference suite another time, before turning around to seek out a mop to wash up the mess on the ground . But then . . . .

A thought entered his mind and stopped his feet from moving again .

"Where did hyung-nim and Cha Hae-In Hunter-nim disappear to?"
