Hwang Yong-min was totally taken aback when the Black Scythe appeared.
“What the heck?! Why is this guy here?” he wondered to himself.
To make things worse, he had just run into the first-place winner from the last round.
But what really caught his attention was the massive scythe the Black Scythe had slung over his back. That thing looked absolutely menacing.
“What are you doing here?” Ryu Min asked.
“Why don’t you just mind your own business and leave us alone?” Hwang Yong-min replied.
“Hey quiet, I didn’t ask you,” the Black Scythe said, turning his gaze towards An Sang-cheol. “I’m asking you. What’s going on?”
An Sang-cheol felt like he was at the end of his rope. “Th-these guys chased and attacked us, they’re targeted Arin! If you help us out, Black Scythe, we’ll make it worth your while!”
Things weren’t looking good at all. This is why he had to swallow his pride and ask for help.
Ryu Min scanned the crowd, taking in the fear on Seo Arin’s face and the excitement on Hwang Yong-min’s.
“I get it,” Ryu Min said, piecing together the situation. In this world where there are no taboos, Seo Arin’s good looks were enough to make any sick guy excited.
This was a world where criminals could get away with murder, even between players.
Ryu Min turned his attention to Hwang Yong-min. “Is what he said true?”
“It’s none of your business whether it’s true or not. Just leave us alone,” Hwang Yong-min said.
“It does concern me. Someone I know is involved,” Ryu Min said, stepping between An Sang-cheol and Hwang Yong-min’s group.
He had taken a clear stance. Seo Arin and An Sang-cheol were secretly impressed by Ryu Min’s boldness. Little did they know, Ryu Min had his own motives.
“This is my chance to make a good impression on Ma Kyung-rok,” Ryu Min thought to himself. If he could save Ma Kyung-rok’s right-hand man, then surely Ma Kyung-rok would be pleased. Plus, he could also use this opportunity to have An Sang-cheol owe him a favor without requiring anything in return.
“Making someone like Ma Kyung-rok indebted to me will lead to a great reward,” Ryu Min thought to himself.
Most importantly, he couldn’t let Hwang Yong-min’s group, one of the types of people Ryu Min despised the most, get away with this kind of thing.
They were the kind of people who deserved punishment.
When Ryu Min approached with his scythe, Hwang Yong-min raised his hand, looking surprised.
“W-what are you doing? If you come any closer, I won’t let you get away with it!” Hwang Yong-min threatened.
“Are you that scared of me?” Ryu Min smirked.
“Damn, of course, I am!” Hwang Yong-min thought to himself.
Hwang Yong-min was at a loss for words.
The Black Scythe, who was known for being that guy who slaughtered goblins like a madman in the first round.
“Who would want to fight against a monster like him?”
Despite having the rune of strength, Hwang Yong-min didn’t want to face the Black Scythe
Above all, he’s even holding a creepy weapon now?
“If you don’t want to fight, just say it.”
“All you need to do is kneel down and beg earnestly, and I will let you go.”
Hwang Yong-min’s eyebrows twitched at the insulting remark to his pride.
“Are you telling me to kneel down like a loser?”
His friends and Seo Arin were looking at him, too.
In that situation, Yong-min’s pride couldn’t allow him to bow down to someone else.
“I didn’t want to fight if possible, but this guy is getting on my nerves.”
He also had the strength to break a wall.
Maybe he could smash the Black Scythe with one blow.
Now or later, he had to be dealt with anyway.
“Yeah, maybe he’s just a piece of crap.”
Determined to fight back, Yong-min focused his eyes.
He loosened his fist joints and approached, step by step.
“Don’t you forget! You asked for this, you bastard!”
He narrowed the gap, sneakily.
“If I land the first hit, I’ll have the advantage. Then what can this guy do?”
There’s no way a human can withstand an attack with the strength to break a wall.
Surely, the guy would scream and crumble if he hits him anywhere with his fist!
“Don’t come with me! I’ll deal with this guy alone!”
Shouting at the rear to his friends, Yong-min took a step forward but suddenly stopped.
That guy had suddenly put his scythe away in his inventory.
“What are you doing?”
“It’ll be troublesome if I win too easily, won’t it?”
“Ha, this bastard….”
As he stopped in disbelief,
Ryu Min suddenly rushed in.
Yong-min was startled, but only for a moment.
“You stupid idiot, you’re dead!”
He swung his fist, but it only grazed Ryu Min’s cheek.
Instead, Yong-min got hit on the head with a front kick and staggered.
“Ugh, you bastard…!”
There was no time to curse because Ryu Min’s sidekick landed on his chin.
His head was spinning.
And he suddenly felt like someone was climbing on top of him.
Thwack! Thwack! Thwack!
Pounding punches rained down on Yong-min’s head.
It felt like getting hit by a hammer each time.
“This guy’s strength is similar to mine?”
He couldn’t even believe a ridiculous thought like that.
He couldn’t think because he was hit six times without being able to land a single punch.
It was embarrassing.
He screamed in anger and struggled.
Finally, Ryu Min jumped off.
