'The raid must've started by now . '

The Association President Goh Gun-Hui checked out his wristwatch and smiled softly to himself . The raid in question was, of course, Hunter Seong Jin-Woo's .

If it had been in the least possible, he wanted to ascertain for himself, but . . . . thanks to the character of his job, it had been simply not feasible, so all he could do was to send an Association employee he trusted greatly as a proxy, instead .

He was getting all aroused already, brooding about what Section Chief Woo Jin-Cheol's report would entail .

'Ah, right . I should not be doing this immediately . '

Goh Gun-Hui shook his head lightly to urge obviate the distracting thoughts . there have been mountains of documents sitting on top of his desk immediately . They were practically forming the towers of documents at now .

Ever since the dungeon break inside the highschool happened, this pile of documents didn't want to decrease regardless of how hard he worked every single day . No, they appeared to get even taller, instead . That was how insanely busy he was, yet his interest in Hunter Seong Jin-Woo didn't wane one bit .

If only his body was healthy – wouldn't he have cleared some dungeons along side Hunter Seong, too?

'Huh, I'm also being hopeless, aren't I?'

Goh Gun-Hui shook his head another time and returned to his work with a smile on his face .

And so, just how long did he consider the documents?

Knock, knock .

He raised his head after hearing the play the door, and realised that three hours had flown by .

"It's Woo Jin-Cheol, sir . "

The news he was expecting had finally arrived . Without one hint of fatigue visible on his countenance, Goh Gun-Hui welcomed Woo Jin-Cheol into the office .

"Please, come in . "

Creak .

Goh Gun-Hui's eyes nearly popped out of their sockets after he saw Woo Jin-Cheol's face because the latter cautiously entered the office .

'What's this?'

He expected there to be no problems, yet Wool Jin-Cheol looked as if he got dragged through a wringer, instead .

'It's not just anybody but Hunter Seong Jin-Woo we are talking about here, so why Chief Woo seems like that . . . . ??'

His confusion only lasted for a brief while, though .

"May I sit down for a touch while, sir?"

Woo Jin-Cheol sounded desperate, so Goh Gun-Hui quickly pointed to the couch .

"Of course, it's fine . Do take a seat . "

He then got up from the President's chair behind the desk to calm down within the opposite side to Woo Jin-Cheol .

Plop .

Woo Jin-Cheol powerlessly sunk deep into the couch . He rubbed his face together with his hands, showing how tired he was .

Just what happened inside the dungeon?

Even before Woo Jin-Cheol could start explaining himself, Goh Gun-Hui couldn't win against his curiosity and began first .

"What happened to you? Why does your face appear as if . . . . ?"

"Pardon? Is there something on my face, sir?"

"You look incredibly tired immediately . As if you could not sleep a wink for the past few days . "

"Ah . . . . . "

Nod, nod .

Woo Jin-Cheol wordlessly nodded his head a couple of times as if he could understand everything now .

"It's probably because I'm just too shocked, that's all . Sir . "

"Shocked . . . . ? Please, tell me more intimately . My friend, didn't you accompany Hunter Seong Jin-Woo to watch his raid?"

Woo Jin-Cheol lowered his gaze and slowly shook his head .

"That, sir, that wasn't a raid . It was . . . . . "

" . . . . It was?"

Woo Jin-Cheol raised his head, shock and fear still obvious in his trembling eyes .

"Sir, it had been the scene of a massacre . "

The charismatic leader of the Monitoring Division, Woo Jin-Cheol, often thought to be possessing an inborn heart of steel, was speaking with a voice that trembled ever softly .

"A massacre, is it . . . . . ?"

Goh Gun-Hui swallowed his saliva .

Woo Jin-Cheol replied without hesitation, evidently not even thinking of adjusting or denying his description .

"Yes, sir . "

Was there the other description that fit what happened in there? it had been because the word suggested, a complete massacre . Woo Jin-Cheol didn't twiddling my thumbs on anything and confessed to everything he saw at the behest of the Association President .

"The dungeon was a nest of Nagas, sir . "

Goh Gun-Hui narrowed his eyes as he searched his knowledge of varied monsters .

'If it is a Naga . . . . '

Creatures that resembled a hybrid of a person's and a snake , preferred to measure in damp areas, and experts of both melee and magic attacks, capable of giving many experienced Hunters a tough time – those points were the Nagas during a nutshell .

They were also referred to as really tough opponents to deal with as they moved around in large groups, albeit they were high-ranked monsters .

However . . . .

'But, someone of Hunter Seong Jin-Woo's level should not be having a tough time against a couple of Nagas going around in groups?'

As if he had read Goh Gun-Hui's inner thoughts, Woo Jin-Cheol clarified himself .

" . . . . I even felt pitying the Nagas at some point, sir . "

" . . . . . !!"

Woo Jin-Cheol recalled the scenes some time past . When a gaggle of 30-strong Nagas suddenly made their appearance, he even momentarily forgot who was next to him and tensed up greatly . Nagas were dangerous enough existences to warrant such a reaction from him .

But then . . . .

" . . . . the encompassing areas suddenly became 'dark', sir . "

Or, more specifically, he should have said that a huge black shadow suddenly extended out from beneath Hunter Seong Jin-Woo's feet .

All the hair on Woo Jin-Cheol's body stood up after he realised that something big was close to happen . And precisely at that moment, soldiers emerged above ground one by one from the extended shadow .

And the battle – no, a massacre, commenced .

- Kiiiaahk!

- Kiihhaaak!

- Kiiaaahhh-!!

Hunter Seong Jin-Woo's summoned creatures pounced forward and proceeded to mercilessly rip the Nagas apart into many bloody pieces .

"At least, those summons wearing black armours, just like the humanoid types and therefore the High Orcs types, were a touch more humane . But then . . . . . "

The summons resembling bears and ants were far too feral even for his tolerance level .

"Some of the ants even began eating the corpse of the monsters . Hunter Seong Jin-Woo became so incensed that he even physically kicked them . "

Woo Jin-Cheol began shuddering after remembering this one ant that attempted to sneak a dead Naga's head into its mouth, only to urge discovered by irate Hunter Seong . It got splendidly buried deep into a wall from a strong kick .

Although, he still couldn't tell whether he was shuddering from the horrifying summons, or from Jin-Woo who could unhesitatingly kick a summon like that into a wall .

Seeing the tense look on Woo Jin-Cheol's eyes, even Goh Gun-Hui became extra tense also , dry saliva gliding down his throat .

"Were his summons strong?"

"They were really strong, sir . "

There was no got to even mention it . Soldiers resembling humans, Orc-type soldiers, bears and ant type soldiers; not one among them might be called weak by any stretch of the imagination . But, the most important highlight of all of them was . . . .

"There was this one summon with a red mane attached to its black helmet . "

Woo Jin-Cheol raised his dipped head again and stared straight into Goh Gun-Hui's eyes .

"Would you think me once I told you that specific summon could shoot lightning out of its sword whenever it took a swing, sir?"

"Oh my god . . . . . "

Goh Gun-Hui was feeling completely astonished now . The lightning magic contained the destructive power of fire-based magic also because the speedy nature of the light-based magic .

Because of that, only a couple of very high-class Mage-type Hunters could cast such magic spells . Even then, firing them consecutively was out of the question .

But then, a summon could shoot such magic all the time by swinging its sword around?

Goh Gun-Hui could only shake his head in helplessness . He definitely wouldn't have believed it if it weren't coming from the subordinate he deeply believed in . But then, the unbelievable story continued on even further .

"In my opinion, that specific summon should be above rank A in terms of power, sir . "

"Are you serious??"

Goh Gun-Hui's voice rose up higher .

How could one summon possess powers almost at the extent of a rank S?!

Unfortunately, Woo Jin-Cheol guaranteed it . And he was right at the height of rank A Hunters too, ability-wise, so he knew what he was talking about .

"If I were to fight that summon one on one . . . . Honestly, I'm not confident of winning, sir . "

Indeed, if such an evaluation came out from Woo Jin-Cheol's mouth, someone with strong self-confidence, then it might be no problem to guage that summon as a rank S .

"Huh-uh . . . "

Goh Gun-Hui leaned against the couch's back .

He already had an honest idea how capable Hunter Seong Jin-Woo was, but to think, each and each one among his summons would possess such a high level of power, too .

What a regretful thing it had been , not being there to personally confirm it together with his own two eyes .

Goh Gun-Hui was getting shocked just from hearing it second-hand, so how would Woo Jin-Cheol have felt as he was actually there? Suddenly, it became rather easier to know the worn-down appearance of Woo Jin-Cheol . He must've been slapped within the face constantly with one surprise after another .

"However, sir, there was a good more shocking spectacle, sir . "

Woo Jin-Cheol carried on as if that wasn't even the top of the story .

"The ants . . . . they began 'working', sir . "

Woo Jin-Cheol's eyes trembled again as he recalled those scenes .

Ants received pickaxes from the bag carried by Ah-Jin Guild's Vice-Master . And then, they proceeded to mine out the Mana Stones from the dungeon walls .

Ants were also responsible of carrying away the mined Mana Stones also because the remains of the dead monsters . Woo Jin-Cheol simply couldn't tear his eyes faraway from the perfectly-organised ants and their unbelievably fast working speed . They were basically the incarnations of efficient 'operation' .

Woo Jin-Cheol was deeply astonished some time past , and he was feeling admiration now .

"What I saw, sir, it wasn't something as simple as a one-man raid team . Not in the least . "

No, this one man was capable of clearing a dungeon, retrieving the remains, and also mining out the minerals, too .

Woo Jin-Cheol was definitely sure of it . which would be – calling Hunter Seong a one-man raid team was actually insulting the person .

"No, sir . That man, he's actually a whole Guild rolled into one . "

He wasn't a one-man raid team, but a one-man Guild, instead . Technically speaking, there was that not-that-helpful Vice Master too, but nothing would've changed albeit he wasn't present, so Woo Jin-Cheol's assertion wasn't wrong in the least .

Goh Gun-Hui slapped his knee .

'I knew it . My eyes weren't wrong!'

A broad smile didn't want to go away his face now .

Like how he had been anticipating it since the start , Hunter Seong Jin-Woo would definitely continue to become the brand-new ballast that keeps the balance neutral within the Korean Hunter community . But now, he began to think that the youth might even continue to vary the map of the Hunters worldwide, too .

"And then . . . . we finally received the boss chamber, sir . "

The story hadn't ended yet??

Goh Gun-Hui quickly refocused on the story another time . Woo Jin-Cheol carried on .

Normal Nagas would be around two, 3 times larger than regular citizenry . But, he said that the boss Naga found within the boss room was easily four-times larger, and therefore the pressure it emitted was incredible also .

"Did Seong Hunter use his summons to quickly pack up the boss-level monsters?"

Woo Jin-Cheol slowly shook his head .

"No, sir . He actually cancelled the summoning altogether, apart from those ants busy with retrieval and mining operations . "

"What? But, why would he??"

Goh Gun-Hui gasped call at surprise, and Woo Jin-Cheol could only reply with a stiff face .

"I was also curious on why, so I asked him . I questioned him why he would cancel the summoning when he was close to fight the boss . "

Goh Gun-Hui was so invested within the tale that, unbeknownst to him, he had begun leaning forward .

"And what did he say?"

"Seong Jin-Woo Hunter-nim told me this . . . . "

Woo Jin-Cheol took his time a touch as if to tug out his unwilling memories to the surface, and cautiously opened his mouth .

"If he relied an excessive amount of on his summons, then his . . . . . "

***

" . . . . My instincts would become softer, you see . "

Jin-Woo spoke up and took a breakthrough because the pair of 'Demon King's Shortsword' was grasped in his hands .

He didn't even got to call out his soldiers . There was just one boss-level monster and 4 others guarding said boss creature, in any case .

Jin-Woo kicked the bottom and dashed forward .

'Quicksilver!'

Even before any of the guardian monsters could react, he slipped past them and closed the space with the enormous Naga at the rear .

'Violent Slash!!'

Dozens upon dozens of silvery light flickered and descended on the lower body of the boss monster .

Slice-slice-slice-slice!!

"Keuhaaaakk!!"

The boss writhed and screamed, and within the meantime, the guardians tried to pounce on Jin-Woo . But he simply used the top of 1 of the guards to leap straight upwards .

Taht!

And when his eyes drew level with the boss's high above within the air, he swung his shortsword sideways .

SWISH-!!

"Kiiiahk!!"

The boss's head was sliced off clean and it flew away . At an equivalent time, a replacement System message popped into his view .

Tti-ring .

[You have killed the owner of this dungeon . ]

[Level up!]

Jin-Woo's expression brightened directly from that wonderful message .

'Ohh!!'

He landed softly back on the bottom and spun around once . That caused all of the guard monsters trying to rush at him to collapse to the bottom at an equivalent time .

Strangely enough, the System messages didn't end there .

Tti-ring, tti-ring, tti-ring . . . . !!

Suddenly, he was inundated with a continuing barrage of mechanical beeps .

'What's this?!'

His fluster could only last for a brief while, though .

[You have reached level 101 . ]

[Levels of all of your Class-specific skills have risen . ]

[Skill: 'Shadow Extraction' has levelled up . ]

[Skill: 'Shadow Storage' has levelled up . ]

[Skill: 'Sovereign's Territory' has levelled up . ]

[Skill: 'Shadow Exchange' has levelled up . ]

Jin-Woo's eyes almost bulged out of their sockets at the rising wall of messages .
