Money was useful and had its advantages.
“Won Ah, how did you like the house we saw at the real estate agency yesterday? Do you like it?”
“Of course! It was incredible! I’ve never seen such a spacious and luxurious house in my life! I’ve only seen pictures, though…”
“Apparently, it’s the best place to move into right now. The security is excellent too.”
Ryu Min planned to move to Galeria Forest in Sungsoo-dong.
The property was valued at 7 billion won, but he didn’t spend that much.
He signed a lease instead of purchasing the property.
“But why did you sign a lease instead of buying it when you have so much money…?”
Ryu Won looked at his brother with wide eyes, but Ryu Min didn’t seem bothered.
“I invested everything in coins except for 1 billion won.”
What is he talking about? Coins?
His younger brother was baffled.
“You mean, bitcoin?”
“You invested 14 billion won into it?”
“Hyung! What were you thinking…?”
Ryu Min raised his hand as if to say ‘I know what you’re going to say.’
“It’s foolish, I know. It may seem like I have no plan and it may appear reckless, but that’s not the case.”
“Do you have some sort of faith in it?”
“That’s why I invested everything except for 1 billion won.”
He earned 15 billion won overnight, only to see it vanish.
Of course, it wasn’t lost, but invested; however, in Ryu Won’s eyes, it was gone.
Even Ryu Won, a middle schooler, knew the risks of coins.
“Is it really okay? I don’t want to meddle since it’s your money, but…”
“Don’t worry. You don’t have to be concerned about losing it.”
“Well, I’m glad…”
He couldn’t feel relieved.
It wasn’t even regular stocks, but coins.
As if understanding his brother’s thoughts, Ryu Min reassured him.
“Don’t worry about money. If I win the lottery and earn more, it’s all good.”
“I dreamt of the winning numbers for five rounds.”
“Really? Just in your dreams?”
“I’m certain. I only remembered the numbers from five rounds.”
“Of course, you don’t know if they’re the first-place numbers.”
If he could win the lottery four more times in the future…
“If 150 billion won comes in four more times…”
Ryu Won covered his mouth with his hand.
“If you remember the numbers, don’t forget them!”
“I won’t forget.”
Ryu Min checked the time on his phone and stood up.
“Let’s have lunch outside and get ready to move.”
“What? Where to?”
“Oh, did I not mention? We’re moving today.”
With a punch, Hwang Yong-min shattered the brick wall.
“Wow, this is lethal!”
He punched the wall again, and it crumbled even more.
Each time he did this, Hwang Yong-min couldn’t help but be amazed.
How could anyone not enjoy having power beyond that of a mere mortal?
“I can even use my status and inventory in real life… This is incredible.”
Even the runes were applied in the real world.
“It’s a rune that doubles my strength. I was lucky to get it.”
Although the runes weren’t ranked, it was evident just by looking at them.
The [Rune of Strength] he had chosen was particularly remarkable.
“I already wanted to increase my strength, but acquiring this rune is incredible.”
With runes like this, he poured all his stats into strength.
As a result, he could easily break bricks with his bare fists.
Although it hurt after a while.
“With this, my fist is like a nuclear weapon; even Tyson would be jealous.”
Hwang Yong-min laughed and brushed the dust off his fists.
“That’s enough for the test. Should we move on to a real fight now? Hehe.”
He stretched his fists and walked toward a shabby multi-unit house.
It was none other than Ryu Min’s residence.
“That arrogant shuttle brat how dare he glare at me like that?”
It had been a few days, but the sneer and glare he displayed at the construction site were still fresh in Hwang Yong-min’s mind.
“You thought I would just let it go? You’re dead, Ryu Min, you little brat.”
He hadn’t seen him since returning to reality.
He tried to call him as usual, but there was no answer.
“Did he think he could avoid me by hiding?”
Although he couldn’t reach him, he knew where Ryu Min’s house was.
“I’ll have to fix this bad habit myself.”
He didn’t know if the guy was alive or dead, but he would find out by going to his house.
Even if they were both in the same round and both survived, he was confident he could beat him.
Even if a nerd awakened his strength, he was still a nerd.
“Here it is.”
Hwang Yong-min pressed the doorbell at Ryu Min’s house.
Ding-dong, ding-dong, ding-dong.
But no matter how many times he pressed it, there was no response.
He put his ear against the front door, but he didn’t hear any movement.
“Is this guy deliberately not coming out while he’s at home?”
He thought Ryu Min was hiding like a coward, expecting Hwang Yong-min to come looking for him.
“Hey, aren’t you the student? What are you doing there?”
Hwang Yong-min turned his head at the voice from behind.
An old man was approaching him.
“What’s it to you, old man? You’re not even the landlord.”
“I am the landlord.”
“Then can I enter if you’re the landlord? My friend lives here, but I can’t get in touch with him. Can you please open the door?”
“Tsk, tsk, tsk.”
The old man didn’t answer and clicked his tongue.
“Your friend left the house.”
“Yes, the house is empty. I came to check it out because he said he moved somewhere else.”
“Do you know where he moved?”
“I have no idea.”
Hwang Yong-min frowned and gnashed his teeth.
“This brat moved without saying a word?”
He never expected his bread shuttle to retaliate against him this way.
