Solo leveling Light Novel : 139

Orcs were natural-born hunters .

Their level of intelligence fell how in need of that of humans, but they easily exceeded humanity when it came to tracking and hunting prey weaker than they were .

And now, the doorway had been shattered . The 'wall' blocking the dungeon from the remainder of the planet was gone, and these hunters began pouring out from the Gate .

"Kururuk . "

"Keuk . "

The Orcs shoved away the annoying corpses of the highschool boys and scanned their surroundings .

"Sniff, sniff . "

"Kuruk . "

These hunters had been trapped inside the dark dungeon for the entire week, quietly expecting today . it had been rather obvious that they might get excited from all the smell of blood and flesh coming from their surroundings .

However, this group was merely advanced scouts . albeit their blood was boiling, they weren't alleged to act as they pleased . Dozens of their brethren were waiting impatiently for his or her reports just beyond the roundish doorway .

These Orcs looked around and spotted straight walls with many doors and windows .

The Orc responsible of the advanced scouts immediately realised that they were standing inside a sophisticated artificial structure sort of a castle .

"Kururuk . "

Its nostrils twitched .

There were two choices here to form . One, leave this 'castle' and kill every prey they might find with utter impunity .

Or, kill every human found within this 'castle' and switch it into a fortress – then , commence with their hunting in earnest . There was no got to even consider which one was the safer choice .

The leader Orc ordered its underling .

"Summon our brothers . "

And then, it raised its head to glare at the ceiling above . The monster's ears twitched and caught onto the noises coming down from upper floors .

Above, and then, more above that, still; this structure was seemingly crammed with prey .

Its head was currently ringing painfully with a voice that kept telling the creature to kill every single one among those prey .

"Good . "

The monster's maw parted and its yellowing fangs were revealed to the planet .

"First, we cleanse this place completely . "

***

There was a sizeable crowd of individuals gathered within the coastline of Gwang-An-ri . albeit the weather was overcast and gloomy, there was this one thing that made these people show over here in morbid fascination .

And that would be the large Gate floating above the beach .

The members of the local police , whose assistance had been requested, and therefore the employees of the Hunter's Association, Busan branch, had cordoned off the world and strictly prohibited civilians from approaching the situation .

But, for a few reason, the amount of parents gathering around hadn't lessened in the least .

"Senior?"

A newbie female employee, who enjoyed the misfortune of being knocked around by the waves of individuals , formed a tearful expression and asked her senior as she sought shelter from the storm of curious humans .

"Do we've to repeat this same thing whenever a Gate appears?"

The senior employee was also feeling flustered over this matter also . this is able to be his first time seeing a commotion of this level around a Gate .

"Well, i assume it cannot be helped, since this Gate is that the biggest one ever to open up in Busan . "

He then sneaked a look behind him . There it had been , the ginormous hole, silently floating within the air .

Just watching it made him desire he was being sucked inside, so he was consciously trying to ignore its presence .

But, in fact . . . .

'I know that thing can't harm people unless there's dungeon break, but still . . . . . '

Even then, he still disliked these Gates a bit like how some people irrationally feared space or the depths of oceans .

That was why he always prayed in his mind that Hunters would quickly lookout of the ominous hole whenever he was dispatched to a Gate's location .

In a way, though, there was this thing that made him feel tons more reassured about this raid . The newbie must've remembered the rationale too, because she suddenly began lecture him .

"Ahh! Senior, did you hear?"

"Hear what?"

"A rank S Hunter from Seoul is meant to return today, right?"

Was anyone here who didn't know that already? Probably, half out of everyone here came solely to ascertain the rank S Hunter with their own eyes while the opposite half, to spectate on the Gate itself .

"You mean, Hunter Seong Jin-Woo?"

"Yes, him!"

"Why are you so happy? You personally know him or something?"

"N-no, not really . "

The newbie quickly shook her hands around and commenced writhing her body with a hyped-up expression on her face .

"Actually, it'll be my first time seeing a rank S Hunter, so . . . . . "

The senior employee formed a disappointed expression, instead .

"Hunter Seong Jin-Woo may be a newbie, and you're also a noob, yet why the 2 you'll be this different??"

"S-senior?!"

"If you continue to have this much energy left to fool around, then why don't you re-evaluate that side and lend them some help?"

"But, I came here to require a brief break, you know? i have been standing around since the first morning and my legs are killing me, you know!"

The senior agent tutted unhappily .

Seeing her narrow her eyes angrily like that, she must've felt that he was being unfair to her, but he couldn't quite trust what she was trying to sell here .

Still, it wasn't as if he couldn't understand where she was coming from, either .

"Well, yeah . I'm also a touch bit curious, too . Everyone's been talking about him lately and every one . "

"See? Even you too, senior . "

"I mean, he solo hunted a boss from the rank S Gate, didn't he?"

Originally, truth boss monster of the rank S Gate appearing on Jeju Island was the queen ant . However, many of these who watched the printed thought that the mutated ant monster was the boss instead, all because of the visceral visual impact that creature had left behind .

Killing the boss-level monster meant that the Gate itself would pack up soon . which young man was a Hunter who could close shut a rank S Gate .

It wasn't for nothing that the noises of Hunter Seong Jin-Woo being a possible 'Special Authority-rank' were gaining momentum recently . it had been only natural that the eye of the general public was focused on him .

"A rank S Hunter, of all people! i'm wondering , what is going to be like seeing one for real?"

The senior employee checked out the sparkling eyes of his junior and his thoughts became complicated in a moment .

'This kid, maybe she applied for employment within the Association not because she likes the work, but because she hankers after Hunters or something??'

The newbie employee didn't care how her senior was watching her . Her eyes continued to sparkle brightly and her voice remained all giddy from anticipation .

"Senior, senior!"

"What now?"

"I hear that you simply can't even look the really strong Hunters in their eyes . Right, I hear you once saw a rank S Hunter within the past? Is that true?"

The senior employee recalled his business trip to Gwang-Ju last year .

" . . . . Yeah, I have . "

"Wow-!"

Suddenly, the senior employee felt his shoulders straightening up a touch after seeing his junior display her admiration like that .

"So? What was it like, senior? Was it really scary?"

"Hey, hey . Don't even mention it, okay? Last year, I had an opportunity to satisfy Hunter Mah Dong-Wook of the Shining Star Guild due to the work from the Association, and . . . . . "

" . . . . Excuse me, coming through . "

"Ah, sure . "

The two Association employees quickly stepped aside to make a path for a young man, and came back together again . But, then . . . .

" . . . . Uh?"

The senior agent looked behind him at the youth wearing a hoodie .

"What's wrong, senior?"

"No, well, i assumed that guy quite looked familiar . "

"Uh? Really? That's so weird . i used to be thinking the precise same thing . "

"Is he also a staffer from the Association?"

"H-mm . . . . "

"Hold on, where was I with my story?"

"That was . . . . Ah, Hunter Mah Dong-Wook from the Shining Star!"

"Ahh, right . I had an opportunity to satisfy Hunter Mah Dong-Wook face to face , and well, that guy was so huge that his shoulders were thiiiis wide . "

"Wow-!"

These two senior and junior employees sure got along so fabulously well, it seemed .

***

"Seong Jin-Woo Hunter-niiiim!"

Park Jong-Su welcomed Jin-Woo with a tearful voice that certainly didn't suit his late-thirties age bracket . That just visited show what proportion was riding on this particular raid .

Jin-Woo quietly confirmed the time whilst he was subjected to Park Jong-Su's passionate reaction . The numbers as indicated on the phone's screen switched from 10:59 to 11:00 .

'Very good . '

Jin-Woo grinned brightly .

In order to avoid raising chaos, he remained in 'Stealth' and need to somewhere a touch away, before walking back here, but he still managed to form it in time nonetheless .

The raid was yet to start out , but he was feeling good about it already . And when he raised his head to seem . . . .

'… . watching it for real now, it kinda looks bigger, doesn't it?'

He could see the Gate right ahead of his eyes that looked way bigger than the one from the video clips . the quantity of magic energy leaking out of that thing was as serious as what the Association had told the Knight Order Guild, too .

'What quite monsters will I find inside?'

A smile unconsciously bloomed on his lips .

Besides that nonsensically huge Gate, though – everything else looked an equivalent , more or less . a bit like how it would be with raids being taken on by other Guilds, there have been two groups of low-ranked Hunters nearby .

'That's the retrieval team, and that is the mining team . '

And the old saying said that you'd see the maximum amount as you knew . He could easily tell apart their roles through the apparel and their equipment . This was indeed all because of 'participating' within the raids of the Hunters Guild within the past .

'Annnd, some time past or now, the Guild's officials are running around and keeping themselves busy, too . '

He felt more relaxed now compared to some time past , when he was still clueless and didn't know which end was up . Indeed, experience proved to be the simplest teacher there was .

"Huh??"

"He really came!"

"It's Mister Seong Jin-Woo?!"

The elite Hunters began gathering around after hearing Park Jong-Su's call sign, and commenced forming bright expression after they recognised Jin-Woo .

He shared simple greetings with them and observed each and everybody present here .

30 high-ranked Hunters had gathered for today's raid . Like Park Jong-Su's confident declaration, the numbers and quality alone didn't lose bent the Hunters Guild in the least .

'As expected . . . . '

Should he say, needless to say of a Guild representing this a part of the country?

And they were all kitted call at proper metal armours or special defensive equipment imbued with magical effects, in order that they certainly fit the bill of 'Knight Order' very well .

To think, such a Guild would be underestimated solely because they lacked a rank S Hunter . What a regretful thing that was .

Jin-Woo could now understand a touch little bit of the mindset of Park Jong-Su who asked him out of nowhere if he was curious about joining the Knight Order .

While he was thinking of this which , it didn't take long for the Hunters to collect all around him .

"Excuse me . . . . "

"Hm . "

They sneaked glances at one another before engaging during a competition to ascertain who could start talking first .

"Hunter-nim! The Jeju Island raid was really amazing!"

"How does one summon those black soldiers? Wait a sec, are they even summons?"

"Will you be taking the lead in today's raid, Mister Seong Jin-Woo??"

Just as Jin-Woo was feeling progressively lost from the outpouring of of these questions . . . .

"Argh, stop! Will you only stop?!"

Healer Jeong He-Rim, liable for arising with the thought of bringing Jin-Woo within the first place, ignored other Hunters and stepped up to the front .

"Why are you trying to bother Seong Hunter-nim to the present degree?? you are not some country bumpkins either, so why?"

Her eyes glaring at her wayward colleagues were as sharp as a pair of blades .

A high-ranked Healer was like one's own mother during a way; because, she was liable for the raid team's overall well-being . The team members had to swallow their dissatisfaction and keep their mouths shut, as if they were being scolded by their mother .

'Fut . '

Jeong Ye-Rim formed a smile . She then airily spun around and extended her hand to Jin-Woo for a handshake .

"I'm the most Healer of the Knight Order's elite assault team, Jeong . Ye . Rim . it is a pleasure to satisfy you . "

She formed a soft smile together with her eyes and continued on .

"I do not know about others, but seeing that you're close to lead the team, and therefore the incontrovertible fact that I'm the most Healer, we should always be a minimum of on an equivalent page before we start, yes?"

Jin-Woo avoided meeting her ulterior motive-filled eyes and checked out Park Jong-Su, instead .

"You haven't explained to them already?"

"Oh, that . Well . . . . . "

Park Jong-Su scratched the rear of his head as if he was embarrassed about something .

"My schedule had been just too tight, you see . i used to be so busy with browsing all the formalities and summoning these guys out here that I've ended up forgetting about it . Sorry that . "

He sheepishly smiled and swept his gaze over the Hunters .

Well, it had been certainly nice that he did not have to repeat himself over and once again , what with the members of the assault team having gathered in one spot already .

"I, Park Jong-Su, will take the lead for today's raid . "

Team members began murmuring to themselves after Park Jong-Su declared himself to be the leader of this raid .

"Chairman, it's you again?"

"But, we've Hunter Seong Jin-Woo here, so why . . . . ?"

"Is it okay to even do that?"

Park Jong-Su was a tanker at the very top of the rank A, so it had been definitely not a wierd occurrence to possess him lead a team . Excluding those times that he couldn't participate thanks to his condition being but ideal, the bulk of the raids happened under Park Jong-Su's leadership .

However, didn't they need a rank S Hunter among the team now?

The strongest Hunter present taking over the lead – this was one among the commonly-accepted rules in raiding a dungeon .

Park Jong-Su quickly offered up an evidence for the sake of his confused teammates .

"Seong Jin-Woo Hunter-nim will take up the role of guarding our rear, and can ensure our safety during the raid itself . "

Watch the assault team from the rear and lookout of the security of the team members – this was Park Jong-Su's demand . This was for the security of the team, of course, but also for the sake of the Guild's honour, as well .

It was true that the Hunters with high physical combat abilities stood within the front of the team . The rear of the formation would usually be haunted by the Hunters ill-equipped to deal against ambushes, like Mage-types, Healers, or support-types .

Knight Order was finding it hard to recruit new blood to their roster recently, therefore the survival of those Hunters was essential to the fate of the Guild itself . And, by placing Hunter Seong Jin-Woo there?

The assault team could plan to a speedy raid of the dungeon without fear about their rear being attacked .

No, hold on!

If enemies did show up from the rear, now that might be a cause for celebration, instead .

Just who was this man standing there for them?

It was none aside from Seong Jin-Woo, who forcibly broke through thousands of rank S monsters without such a lot as batting an eyelid once . If enemies kept appearing behind the team all the time, then well, they might even aim to finish this raid early and head home .

That was Park Jong-Su's first reason .

And, the much-more-important second reason was . . . .

Gulp .

Park Jong-Su checked out the throng of reporters gathered just beyond the police line and swallowed down his dry saliva with some effort .

That was proof that tons of individuals were curious about this raid . If he wasn't careful here, then all those people might find yourself thinking that the Knight Order Guild was leeching off on Hunter Seong Jin-Woo .

'Well . . . which may be true, but… . '

Whatever the case could also be , he couldn't allow others to ascertain things that way . To the Knight Order, truth aim of this raid was to let the planet know that the Guild was still going strong, that it had been still at its peak .

That was why Park Jong-Su desperately pleaded with Jin-Woo .

And this was the result .

"I've already discussed the matter with Seong Hunter-nim and agreed to try to to the raid this manner , so if you've got any complaints, reserve it until we finish the raid . "

Park Jong-Su finally need to tell the remainder of the team members the results of the negotiation . However, this happened then .

"Yo, hold up . i actually aren't getting something here, so I gotta ask . "

A rank A Hunter suddenly progressed . He was a rookie who hadn't been working for the Knight Order Guild for long .

"Since when did we become such weak Hunters that we'd like protection from someone else?"

That one sentence caused the complexions of the senior Hunters to travel utterly pale .

'Keok . . . . . !!'

'N-no, junior, don't!'

The young Hunter, who looked to be round the same age as Jin-Woo, formed an expression overflowing confidently .

"Don't you accept as true with me? Hyung-nim? Noo-nim?" (TL: Noo-nim – a respectful thanks to call an older female)

Because . . . this rookie with great care happened to receive the second-most attention from the potential suitors after 'Kim Cheol' during this year's crop of latest Hunters . Indeed, he had a reason to be confident of himself .

Unfortunately, there was a drag , which would be the guy he was lecture .

"Do the elites of our Knight Order look that weak to your eyes, Mister Seong Jin-Woo?"

'… . . . '

Jin-Woo suppressed the rising fit of laughter to the simplest of his abilities and silently stared at this newbie rank A Hunter . it had been the task of other Hunters to feel their blood all dry up, not him, so it had been fine .

'What the hell, with what idiotic confidence is that child trying to . . . . ?'

'No, wait . That punk . . . I knew that he's a rustic bumpkin from Busan, but could it's that he has never even seen a rank S in action?'

'Someone, please stop that guy!'

'But, you'll only stop someone who knows when to spew nonsense within the right time and at right place . . . . '

Seeing that his seniors were all rendered speechless, which Jin-Woo was maintaining his silence, the newbie Hunter's confidence swelled up even more .

"Besides that, Chairman, you went too far, you know!"

"What, me?"

'Why is it me this time?!'

Park Jong-Su dumbfoundedly pointed to himself .

"Even if the name value of a rank S Hunter is high, how are you able to agree that easily to the condition of a freelancer removing a Guild's worth of the loot?"

" . . . . "

A migraine had developed in Park Jong-Su's head by now, and he sent a fast glance to Jin-Woo .

'Seong Hunter-nim . . . I leave our junior in your capable hands . '

Jin-Woo nodded briefly .

"Whatever the case could also be , I simply can't understand this nonsensical contra . . . . "

It was then .

Right ahead of the rookie making his passionate speech, Igrit was summoned .

'Heok!'

The rank A newbie flinched from the huge magical energy emanating from the black knight and hastily took a step back . However, he saw something hard on his back even before he could take a second step .

Stunned silly now, he quickly rotated only to seek out another knight, several heads taller than the one before, looking down on him . it had been Iron, in fact .

"Heok!!"

The gasp he tried to cover jumped out of his throat all on its own .

And then, 'it' came from the side .

Someone tapped him on the shoulder, and therefore the newbie slowly turned his sweat-soaked face to seek out a figure draped in black robes standing there this point .

"U-uwahhk?!"

The newbie lost all of his leg strength from the ominous magic energy oozing out from Fangs, and plopped down on to his butt .

'He looks way too pitiful, so I shouldn't summon out Beru, no?'

Jin-Woo flicked his hand once and therefore the three knight-grade soldiers surrounding the newbie Hunter quickly returned to their shadow state .

Jin-Woo walked over to the pale-faced newbie and reached out together with his hand .

"You still can't understand anything yet?"

The rank A newbie took his hand and unsteadily stood copy , before nodding at the speed of sunshine .
