To Hell With Being a Hero!

Chapter 28: Female President (4)

e dont have the capabilities to protect this child. The Heavens may have favored her this time, but if something similar happens to her again…”

Chi-Woo listened to this conversation without intending to. He was the one who saved Hawa, and he had no intention of revealing that unless necessary. But why was Shakira skirting away from the truth? Especially when he was standing next to her?

‘I should just keep observing for now. Even though he was curious, Chi-Woo decided to keep his silence. When you didnt know something, it was best not to say anything.

“Lady Eshnunna, Hawa is a smart child. If you accept her under your wing, shell be very useful to you.”

“Hmm…” Eshnunna still looked conflicted. After a while, she quietly sighed and said, “I guess it cant be helped. I understand. Ill bring her with me for your sake.”

“Thank you. Ill never forget this favor.” Shakira bowed so deeply that her head almost touched the ground.

“No, not at all. I should be apologizing to you. If I had done a bit better…” Eshnunna smiled wryly, unable to continue.

“Hel…” Chi-Woo got tired of waiting and subtly intervened.

“Oh my.” Eshunna was startled. “I-Im sorry. I didnt realize you were here…”

Chi-Woo smiled. He found the contrast between her now clumsy reaction and her previous disciplined mannerism cute. “Its nothing important, but I was wondering if I could ask you a question.”

“Yes, yes. Of course.” Eshnunna faked a cough and fixed her posture.

“I was curious if the heroes you verified in the main camp were people I knew.”

“Ah, if you are talking about those people…” Eshnunna shifted her eyes like she knew something. “Are they perhaps Mua Janya and Gripping Giant Fist and Rising?”

“One of them has short brown hair and the other has a tail…how did you know?” Chi-Woo stopped talking mid-sentence, his eyes widened.

Eshununna seemed to have found Chi-Woos expression funny as she smiled and said, “You dont know how much they had been asking about you. Its very fortunate that I met you here. How lucky of me.”

“Then, they are both…”

“Yes, youll be able to meet them soon.”

Chi-Woos expression brightened. ‘Theyre both alive.

“Thank you.”

“Its no problem at all. Its something I should obviously do.”

“No, not at all. You saved them at your own risk. Thank you. I mean it.”

Eshnunnas gaze turned inquisitive, and Chi-Woo tilted his head.

“What is it?” he asked.

“Ah, no, its nothing. And you can speak to me comfortably.”

“But its our first time meeting each other. Well, I might think about it if you speak comfortably to me first.”

“What? No, how can I do that to a hero?”

“Then how can I do that to a princess?”

Eshnunna looked flustered. After thanking her once more, Chi-Woo turned away, saying that he would go fetch his luggage. He definitely needed to bring his bag.

The tent was busy as people prepared to move. Even though it was sudden, there was no reason for them to not go. There was nothing much for Chi-Woo to pack; he just needed to get his bag.

‘What? Wheres my bag… The backpack he had left on top of a haystack was nowhere to be seen. While Chi-Woo was looking around, someone reached out to him.

“Its right here.” The person holding his bag was Rawiya.

“Ah, thank you.” Chi-Woo took the bag and instinctively touched its side. Fortunately, he felt the hard texture of his club. He would be fine with losing everything else, but not the club his church mentor had given him.

It doesnt seem like anythings missing. Instead, he felt that the bag had become heavier.

“Im sorry that I touched your bag without permission. I packed some food in there because I realized that Ive never given you a single meal.”

“No, not at all. Id like to return it to you since the camp seems to be struggling.”

“Take it. Its just one meal, and Im not sure if theyre still edible.”

“Its all right.” Chi-Woo opened his bag. It was also to check if anything was missing. ‘Everythings still there.

“Its fine for you to have it. Thats a gift given from the bottom of our hearts. I dont want to get reprimanded by those in the main camp.” Rawiya stopped Chi-Woo from taking out the food and forcibly closed the bag.

“I really am fine.”

“You should just leave it. But anyway, its disappointing. Youre leaving when we were just getting to know each other.”

“You made it sound like we would never see each other again.”

Rawiya smiled in lieu of a response. Then, apropos of nothing, she asked, “Whats your name?” It was a sudden question. Rawiya continued, “Now that I think about it, I havent gotten your name.”

Chi-Woo pretended to not hear her. He couldnt reveal his real name. He wanted to give her a cool fake name, but Ru Amuh was here now. If he gave her a different name, Ru Amuh might get suspicious of him. On the other hand, he really didnt want to give her that fake name. It wasnt so bad to remain nameless like this.

“Ill be heading out. Until we meet next time, I hope you stay healthy.”

“Hmm? What? Hey!” While Rawiya was confused, Chi-Woo tried to quickly leave, but—

“Sir Chichibbong!” Coincidentally, Ru Amuh called out to him at that exact moment. Chi-Woo immediately froze. “I apologize for what happened before, sir. I dont want you to misunderstand, but…?”

Ru Amuh stopped mid-sentence and hesitated because Chi-Woo was glaring at him as if he wanted to kill him.

“Chichi…bbong?” Ru Hiana blinked. “Thats Seniors name?”

“Yep,” Ru Amuh replied calmly. “While I was guiding him out of the cave, he told me his name before he left. Since the name left a deep impression on me, I remember it.”

“Aha~” Ru Hiana nodded. “Thats his name~ Chichi…” However, she wasnt able to continue, and she lowered her head.

“Hmmmhm. Is that…so!” Rawiya also looked down and seemed to be having a hard time speaking. A short silence followed. Rawiya gulped and her lips twitched as she continued, “Your name is Chichibb…ha-ong…”

While Rawiya almost managed to say his name.

“Heeheaumph.”

Chi-Woo heard the sound of suppressed laughter escaping someones mouth.

“Ru Hiana? Why are you…” Ru Amuh tried to warn Ru Hiana but…

“No-hee! Its not bb-ha-ong! But bboong-haahahaha!” In the end, Ru Hiana was unable to keep it together and burst into loud laughter. And that was the start of it all.

“Bbuuuuugh—!” Rawiya gritted her teeth and strained her eyes to stop laughing, while Zelit quickly turned away and stared at a far scenery that didnt even exist.

“Why are you laughing? Its rude!” Only Ru Amuh was flustered and got angry.

There was a saying that the sister-in-law who pretended to help was more annoying than a fussy mother-in-law; Chi-Woo could now completely understand the daughter-in-laws sentiments. Chi-Woo stared blankly inside the tent that had fallen into fits of laughter and helplessly walked out.

“No! Senior! Im sorry! I wasnt laughing because your name was funny!”

“I-Im sorry! Its because your name is so different from your image that I couldnt stop myself!”

Ru Hiana and Rawiya apologized later on, but Chi-Woo didnt listen to them. Instead, he shed tears inside his mind. Yes, there was no one to blame but himself. Why did he pick Chichibbong of all names?

‘Among all the names I couldve picked…

Why Chichibbong!?
