To Hell With Being a Hero!

Chapter 17: Boat People (2)

t?”

“Thats not—”

Huuuuuu—Ump!

At that moment, a scream burst out. It sounded like their mouth was quickly blocked before they could scream longer. Now that Chi-Woo thought about it, the inside of the place seemed chaotic even though it was deep in the night.

“What is it?” the captain asked sharply.

“Theres some trouble. Once again, Lady Hawa…”

Chi-Woo and the others couldnt hear them clearly because they were talking in hushed tones. At the guards statement, the captain clicked her tongue. “Ill go there soon. But first, you guys follow me.” The captain immediately went in and crossed the camp with great speed. They passed through small and decrepit tents and went into a tent that was relatively big compared to the others. The inside of the tent was dark, but two torches lit up the area.

“Rest for now. Ill bring the seer soon,” the captain replied curtly and untied the rope and mouthpiece restraining Ru Hiana.

“You…!” As soon as she was freed, Ru Hiana ferociously glared at the captain and was about to shout when—

Swish.

Ru Hiana froze with her mouth open. She felt a cold sensation on her neck. A blade with a blue glint was pressed to her neck. “Dont yell.” The captains voice was emotionless. “Even if this camp is impoverished and shabby, Im still the captain here.” While staring at Ru Hianas trembling mouth, she continued, “Even though all of you might not really care about what happens to this camp—I am willing to do anything to protect it.”

Ru Hiana tightly closed her mouth, and the captain smirked. “Since it seems like some of my words are getting through to you, Ill give you one piece of advice. I wont stop you if you quietly go out of this camp, but before you go, you should at least meet the seer. Shes a lot kinder and more knowledgeable than me.” The captain withdrew her dagger. “The rain is coming down strongly, so it would be okay if all of you just talk quietly. Even then, dont make any loud noises if you dont want to start running in all directions at the dead of night.” Then the captain said shed return soon and hurriedly went outside.

The tent became quiet.

“Why dont you rest for now?” The long-headed man started a conversation with Ru Hiana, who was sitting in a daze. “We dont know anything right now. If we gain more information, we might come up with some solutions. Its always a good idea to rest beforehand to prepare for the future.”

Even though he made his suggestions with a soft tone, Ru Hiana showed no reaction. However, since she wasnt acting rashly, the long-headed man sat down and didnt pressure her to reply. Chi-Woo also put down his wet bag and sat down on it.

The other hero let out a very deep sigh. “Seriously, what kind of situation is this…”

Chi-Woo stared at the hero who was looking around while complaining. Chi-Woo hadnt been able to get a clear look of his face since it was dark outside, and the hero had been staying in the back, but now that Chi-Woo was able to get a better look, the hero did seem familiar to him. The man had short black hair and black eyes. He looked a bit rough and had the face of a thug whod smoke a cigarette while holding an ice cream cone in a local convenience store. Unlike the long-headed man, he looked ordinary. He didnt even look like a foreigner to Chi-Woo.

The man smacked his lips and quietly sat next to Chi-Woo. “Hey, bro.” Even though theyve barely met, he called Chi-Woobro in a friendly manner. “Im asking this just in case, but are you from Planet Glaze? Cause you look like youre the same species as me.”

“No, Im not.” Chi-Woo shook his head. He had thought they looked alike, but it was the first time he heard of Planet Glaze.

“Ah, as expected. Figured as much. In this enormous galaxy, its hard to meet a friend from back home. Unless its an exception like Earth. Where are you from then?”

Chi-Woo was slightly caught off guard when the man mentioned Earth. What did he mean by exception? Holding the thought, Chi-Woo replied, “Well, you know, very far…even if I tell you the name, you probably wont know.”

“Oh man, its not even a big secret to reveal your Planets name,” the man complained and extended his hand. “Anyway, since weve been brought together despite the odds, why dont we exchange names? Im Eval Sevaru.”

A unique name, Chi-Woo thought as he held Sevarus hand.

“The number of worlds Ive saved is about two, and…anyway, what about you, bro?”

It seemed that heroes categorized themselves by the number of worlds they saved. Chi-Woo replied, “Its not an important name. Please just call me according to your preference.”

“Ah~ Wow, why is this bro so cold?” Eval Sevaru grumbled. “Your Planet is a secret~ Your name is also a secret~ Are you one of the 12 Families or something? Hmm?”

He hit right on the mark. Chi-Woo tried to hide his emotions and gave a flat smile.

“Just leave it. Everyone has their own circumstances.” The long-headed man intervened. Eval Sevaru snorted.

“What about you, Mr. Spiky Head?”

“Im Zelit.”

Chi-Woo had almost laughed atMr. Spiky Head; hearing the nameZelit gave him an even harder time holding in his amusement.

Is he a Zealot?[1] This had actually been Chi-Woos first thought when he saw the long-headed man.

That was dangerous. Chi-Woo had almost laughed at a persons name; there was no greater social faux pas than that.

Eval Sevaru looked strangely at Chi-Woo, who suddenly began breathing in and out in a controlled manner. Then he lied down with a careless attitude and said, “Ah, man. This is the first time I regretted joining a mission as soon as I arrived. That being were running away from cant be some sort of low-level monster here, right? If they are, were really fucked.” He let out a deep sigh. “But I guess even if theyre not, were still fucked. I never heard about a World that sprouted out mid-level bosses from the very beginning.”

Eval Sevaru grumbled and blinked two times. A hologram appeared above his eyes. He tapped the hologram and let out a humorless chuckle. “Wow. Look at the user information. Im basically crawling on the floor. My stats are so low.”

Chi-Woo perked up at the mention of user information.

“Even though we arent getting any support…this is still a bit too…I really should have trained my body…” Eval Sevarus words no longer reached Chi-Woos ears.

Words like system window and stats were common in novels and games about “otherworlds”.

Then, whats my status like? Chi-Woo could not help but be curious given the situation. He looked down at his left wrist.How do I turn this on?

If he asked the other heroes here, theyd find out that he was a non-hero, so he tapped his wrist with his thumb the way he saw Giant Fist do before.

Flash!

He was startled when a hologram suddenly flashed in front of his eyes. He gulped and looked at his hologram. After a short moment, he nodded.

Ah. Thats why… He now understood why Laguel had told him that he would quickly adjust to the hologram function if he was from Earth. Chi-Woo felt like he was looking at his phone. Rather, there seemed to be fewer functions in the hologram than his phone. Even though there were many things he wanted to try pressing, he first clicked on the human-shaped emoticon with the worduser information on it. Then the holograms screen changed.
