The only thing left for Ryu Min to do was to level up by hunting.
“Before that, should I check Hwang Yongmin’s location first and test out the 20,000-gold skill while I’m at it?”
Whenever Ryu Min acquired the “Track” skill, he would always check Hwang Yongmin’s location.
“Please imagine the face of the target and state their nickname.”
Ryu Min thought of the target based on the message.
“Face and nickname match. Tracking target’s location.”
“You are currently 190 meters away from the target.”
“Follow the arrow in front of you to track the target.”
“Did he come into the forest too? He’s closer than I thought.”
Hwang Yongmin, who was 2,000 meters away in the previous regressions, was now quite close.
“Should I take a look?”
Ryu Min quickly made his way through the forest with his scythe.
“Haak, haak, haak.”
The sound of rough breathing between a man and a woman echoed in the deep forest.
But it didn’t last long.
“Pant, pant, I can’t run anymore. My leg hurt too much.”
Seo Arin, who had breathed in all the way to her chin, collapsed onto the ground.
An Sang-cheol, who was next to her, was also panting, but he knew there was no time to rest.
“Arin, we have to keep moving. Otherwise…”
An Sang-cheol couldn’t bring himself to finish his sentence and looked around.
If they rest like this, no one knows what would happen if they were caught off guard by the people chasing them.
“It hurts, but you have to get up.”
“My leg hurt too much…”
An arrow had hit Seo Arin’s calf, and An Sang-cheol’s thigh had been cut by a sword.
But now was the time to move.
It was better than being caught by the pursuers and dying!
“Even if we get hurt in this world, our real bodies will be fine. We can go back home as long as we survive.”
“Is that… right? Okay. I’ll try to endure the pain.”
Seo Arin gritted her teeth and got up from her spot.
And then it happened.
“Where do you think you’re going with that body?”
The pursuers who had been chasing them finally caught up.
Less than 30 seconds of rest had closed the distance between them.
“Dammit. That damn woman…!”
An Sang-cheol cursed inwardly as he immediately raised his sword.
There was no other choice but to fight now.
Even though they were both injured, they had to fight.
“Oh, An Sang-cheol. Are you going to fight us?”
One of the pursuers, a large man, approached them with a smirk.
His name, whether it was his real name or not, was Hwang Yongmin.
“You’re fighting us?!” Hwang Yongmin laughed, “Don’t you have eyes, look at us.”
Hwang Yongmin and three others held weapons and glared at them.
One of them even had a bow, giving them the upper hand.
“Can we win if we fight?”
They were already tired from running away and being wounded.
It seemed best to avoid a direct confrontation.
“What did we do wrong? Why are you attacking us out of nowhere?”
“Huh? You didn’t do anything wrong.”
“Then why did you attack us….”
“Hand her over.”
Hwang Yongmin chuckled.
“The girl next to you.”
“We don’t have any business with a guy like you. It’s Seo Arin next to you that we want.”
Seo Arin gasped realizing that this whole ordeal was because of her.
“But are you really Seo Arin? The actress Seo Arin?”
“Can’t you tell just by looking? Her nickname Seo Arin and she looks exactly like her.”
“Someone else might be imitating Seo Arin’s face and nickname.”
“So what? As long as it’s enjoyable.”
“Oh, is that so? Kekekeke.”
“Hey, An Sang-cheol. If you leave Seo Arin behind, we’ll let you go. How about that?”
An Sang-cheol gritted his teeth at Hwang Yongmin’s proposal.
He could clearly see their intentions.
“Was Seo Arin their target all along? If that was the case, they should’ve said so from the beginning.”
He regretted being here with Seo Arin, knowing that if he didn’t protect her, he would fail to meet the expectations of Ma Kyung-rok, the company representative.
As her manager and bodyguard, he was assigned by the company to watch over her, but in reality, he was just assigned to surveillance duty.
He had no intention of dying for Seo Arin.
However, there was one thing that bothered him.
“If I can’t protect Seo Arin, I’ll disappoint Ma Kyung-rok’s expectations.”
An Sang-cheol tightened his grip on his sword.
He had to survive with Seo Arin no matter what.
“Oh.” Hwang Yongmin smirked, “Look at those eyes now.”
“Are you planning to fight?”
“You guys. Do you know that this is a crime?”
“A crime? Kekeke, you’re funny, old man.”
Hwang Yongmin shrugged and laughed.
“This is a whole other dimension. What laws exactly are we breaking? There are no laws here!”
“Even so, this is not just a game. This is real life. You’ll commit a crime if you kill us! In fact, you already committed a crime by injuring us!”
“Oh, is that so? Then what are you going to do about it? Are you going to report to the police that Hwang Yongmin attacked Seo Arin and An Sang-cheol?”
Hwang Yongmin and his friends laughed at his response.
“Do you have any evidence? There’s no CCTV here, is there?”
“How do you even know if it’s my real face? And how can you prove if I used my real name as my nickname?”
Everything he said was true.
There was no evidence, no proof.
They couldn’t take a picture or make a testimony.
Their appearances in this place were avatars different from reality in the first place.
An Sang-cheol knew that.
He was just hoping for a slim chance.
“Darn it, persuasion isn’t working at all.”
Judging from their bloodshot eyes, it seemed unlikely that they would listen to words.
Come to think of it, if his words had been effective, they wouldn’t have shot arrows at him.
Although he felt pain in his injured thigh, there was nothing he could do.
He had to fight, even if it meant risking further injury.
“For the sake of Ma Representative…!”
An Sang-cheol was about to move his body.
When someone appeared from behind a tree.
It was a player holding a long scythe.
