EP.69 Inflection Points
In the original, Dr. Kim Sunwoo comes and retrieves the black material.
Made of several layers of tiny black tentacles, it attaches to the user’s body and strengthens the attached area.
Of course, this is not the only usefulness of Behemoth.
As much as it moves freely according to the user’s thoughts, there are many ways to use it.
There are endless ways to use it because you don’t have to stick to your body, such as being able to stick together like a rocket punch.
In the original, Kim Sunwoo fights Stardus with this thing.
I mean, even ordinary people can fight against supermen with this.
I mean. If I have this, wouldn’t it mean that I could have a one-on-one match with Stardus?
“……Put it down!”
“Why would I put this down?”
I smiled while looking at her growling at me with a stiffened expression.
Before I knew it, Behemoth was completely wrapped around my right hand.
My right hand is now made up of tentacles
My right hand held into a fist.
It feels like my right hand is full of energy.
In particular, there is an advantage that these tentacles are directly connected to my brain and move as I want.
…Yeah, wouldn’t it be too much to fight the Stardus?
She still looks at me with a stiffened expression.
It looks like she wants to get this off me right now, but not a chance.
I know it would be over if I just teleport away, but I just stay still like that without even being able to rush in.
Teleportation is indeed good.
“Stardus, let me give you a piece of advice. Do you know what it is? Don’t trust villains! Honestly, I wonder how you weren’t aware of this. Hahahahaha!”
Her face became more distorted at my sly words.
That’s right. I was going to stop at that then ‘Buh-bye’ and run away.
That’s what I was going to do.
Tsk. It’s kind of weird if I just leave like that, right?
Since I also just gained a new ability.
Also, to alert Stardus.
I moved my blackened right hand to Stardus.
“If you want to take it away… Why don’t you come and get it?”
As I put a smile on my face, she didn’t put up with it any more.
“…I will beat you hard but still spare your life.”
She flies toward me in an instant.
“Clench your teeth.”
At the same time, she began to stretch her fist at me.
What about me?
I already got my fist ready for a while.
However, a man does not fight a fistfight with a woman in an uncool way.
The moment she came right up to my nose and swung her fist.
I jumped a long way back from where I was and loaded my fist.
And I aimed it at her..
And I’m going to be a big fishy
The black fist-shaped tentacles shot from my hand, straight to Stardus.
Just like that, I bumped into Stardus’ fist.
Our fists clashed and made a loud sound.
Stardus looked a little flustered, with her strength-bearing fist.
Uh-huh, this is the power of Behemoth.
…Of course, I’m not physically fighting with this thing around my right arm, but I’m able to withstand her strength because I’ve clumped all my tentacles together with my small fist. On top of that, Stardus won’t think about killing me immediately here, so she’s probably controlling her strength to some extent.
But is that important?
The thing is, I’m fighting her head-to-head anyway.
“Hey!! Fight fair and squarely!!”
“Have you ever seen a villain who fights fair and square?”
She scolded me as I kept slipping away and shooting only tentacles at her from a distance, but I simply just ignored her.
…And didn’t Stardus concept just fall apart? Originally, she should’ve shouted out things like “You punk! Fight fair and square!’
Well, I guess she’s a little upset. Why is she getting mad?
Looking at her face as she continued the battle, a face full of anger and betrayal.
….Betrayal? Why the hell do you feel betrayed? It’s common sense for a villain to betray. I don’t understand. No matter how much I think about it, I think she hasn’t had a taste of the bitter in life.
I continued the fight.
An attack that I keep running away by teleportation and jabbing with its tentacles.
No matter how large the room was, the walls broke down and went crazy as we fought with each other in the west.
…I’m getting sick of this one pattern.
I’m tired of teleporting too much. I’m tired.
Did I ever fight this hard in the first place? No, actually, I feel like Behemoth is fighting instead of myself, but…
But what about this? What lesson have I taught her?
I once again loaded my fist as I saw her flying in, still filled with anger.
When she reached out her fist at me at the same time, I also reached out.
This time, I didn’t attack from a similar distance, I wrapped Behemoth in my right arm and grabbed her fist.
My arm is a little numb, but I could still stop it.
This will be my last attack.
Now I just need to talk a little bit and run away. Seo-eun must be worried.
I bumped into her body, I mean, with our fists clashed with each other, I said goodbye.
“Today’s lesson. Have you got it? Don’t believe in villains…”
Don’t trust villains.
When I’m trying to give advice so that she won’t get stabbed from behind like this from now on.
It happened out of nowhere.
Stardus was staring at me like she’s going to kill me.
And behind her was empty
Yeah, it used to be empty.
Suddenly behind her, something popped up.
It had a huge white face.
He was about 2 meters tall, and his mouth was bizarrely torn.
A figure with white, sharp arms, like a giant scythe.
That thing that popped out of the air really suddenly, suddenly.
When no one expected it, it popped out in the blink of an eye.
From the moment he appeared, he was already swinging his sickle-like arm behind Stardus’ back.
At that moment, I stopped thinking.
Stardus is still looking at me without knowing what’s going on.
And with no reason for me to do anything, the white sickle was already flying toward her neck.
The new monster that we couldn’t get rid.
[Precaution] Can run away by teleporting, so keep A-level security at all times. Watch out for attacks from behind.
Yeah, I think I read something like that.
But I didn’t have much to worry about even though I didn’t find him. I didn’t even care.
I’ve been killing other monsters so easily so far.
And my carelessness, being a big dagger, is heading for the Stardus.
What should I do?
It’s too late to say. Already the tentacles are pitting against her fist. It’s too weak to be a salt engine.
Hold it and teleport? We can’t even catch it because we’re fist-to-fist with my Behemoth.
Of course. There’s nothing we can do.
I teleported as we were.
Behind her back, to the spot where the monster was wielding a sickle.
And stood in her place.
Just like that, I was stabbed.
“What…! What the?!”
She screams behind my back.
I put my back to her, and I got stabbed for her sake. With the fist that clashed to hers, I threw it in its direction.
Too easy. The one with the head smashed and the white powder fluttering.
Yeah. He was such an easy guy to get through.
It would have been better if I had done it like this, without a hole in my chest.
“Hey, what’s going on? Uh, uh, you, why…”
Her voice, which was stuttering in utter confusion, came from above me.
That would be ridiculous. The villain who was fighting earlier suddenly moved back and took the stab instead.
My condition now is not good even with empty words.
I’m lying on the floor, bleeding with a hole in my chest that could fit a fist.
Crazy brat. You’ve been through something.
It hurts a lot.
I vomited blood on the spot.
The blood from my chest. The blood spitting out from my mouth. What a mess. Ha, haha…
“No, what the hell… why… are you okay…Why… is this… What the fuck….”
Stardus’ voice from above.
Now I can’t even hear well because of my tinnitus.
Quickly, we have to go back. Home.
I’m going to die. Uh.
Wait, but. Before I go… You have to say it. It’s not weird.
I squeezed out a word with all my might.
“Cough. This time, this time. One. You owe me.”
The last time I saw her looking at me with trembling eyes as if she was still very embarrassed.
I teleported while keeping the state. Home.
I hope it’s not too late.
Late at night.
A large mansion hidden deep in a mountain valley
In the kitchen, three people gathered.
“No. When is he coming?””
The white-haired girl looking at her smartphone with her cheeks inflated, Han Seo-eun.
She was worried about Dain, who had been out of touch after hours of going underground.
“…Let’s wait a bit more. And Ha-yul. Aren’t you going to school tomorrow? You should go to bed now.”
Ha-yul shakes her head with a bitter smile at the words of worried Soobin who was handed over next to her.
“No, I’ll wait a little more, too.”
“Phew. He always makes me worry…””
When only the sighs of the three women were getting deeper.
It’s a mess.
The sound of something falling down in the living room.
“Oh! I guess he’s finally here!””
As soon as Seo-eun heard the sound, she rushed out.
When the other two were following her up and heading to the living room.
In the living room, Seo-eun, who ran there first, screamed out loud.
“Seo-eun! What’s going on?”
Surprised by the sudden scream, the two rushed to the living room.
What they saw was.
There’s a hole in the upper body.
There, bleeding all over.
It was the appearance of Egostic, lying against Seo-eun.
“Da-in, Da-in! W-What are we going to do?! Da-in!”
Seo-eun was panicking next to him in tears.
The two of them who saw him faintly breathing and spilling blood
When they saw the shocking scene that suddenly unfolded, they had no choice but to panic.
“W-What is this… Ah. Aah. First, 911, call. We have to call them…”
In shock, Lee Soo-bin took her cell phone out of the pocket with her hands shaking.
But was her hand shaking too much? The cell phone, in the process of lifting, slipped her hand and smashed into the floor.
When Lee Soo-bin kneels down and stammers to pick up the phone on the floor while it is still out of focus.
Ha-yul, next to her, was already heading for him.
“Seo-eun, get out of the way.”
“What? Oh, yes…”
At Ha-yul’s words full of determination, Seo-eun, who was crying, stepped away from him.
Ha-yul, who soon came to his nose, kneeled down and put his hands on Dain’s body.
Slowly opened his eyes.
The living room where they were, was filled with sudden light.
A sudden sensation, through a blurring consciousness.
I feel warm all over.
Ha-yul stepped up.
Fortunately, it wasn’t too late.
I’m alive. It’s okay now that I’m still alive….
Haha. I almost died.
If you live as a man, you have to tap dance in a diagonal line at least once. It’ll all become good memories later on. ‘Haha. It was so scary back then!’
…But it’s been a problem since I woke up.
Seo-eun, Soobin, and Ha-yul must have been shocked.
I don’t know. Let’s think about it later when we wake up.
After thinking that far, I lost my mind.
Way to go, future me…!
