The Novel's Extra - chapter-11
After spending the rest of Friday working out and training, it became
Saturday before I noticed.
[Traveling Club Announcement]
—There will be a short trip on Sunday to serve as a freshman
The traveling club’s orientation was today. The meeting place was
‘Cube Portal Station’, which connected Cube to Seoul.
After stuffing my gun in my cross bag, I walked to the meeting place.
Many of the leading characters — namely Kim Suho, Yi Yeonghan, Chae
Nayun, and Yoo Yeonha — were already present.
They seemed completely oblivious to my existence, but being with them
still made me nervous. Today in Seoul, an unexpected incident would
occur. This would be the story’s first major incident.
While I was organizing today’s impending incident in my head, the club
“Hello, I’m the club president, Oh Hanhyun. I didn’t believe it
when I saw so many club applications, but… it’s real. Who knew such
amazing cadets would join my club?”
With his average height and gentle first impression, Oh Hanhyun looked
around the club members while scratching his neck.
“First, I’ll give a short introduction about the traveling club.”
With a bashful smile, he took out a piece of paper from his pocket. It
looked like he had a speech prepared. I described Oh Hanhyun as a timid
person, so I wasn’t too surprised with his actions.
“Kuhum. Once or twice a month, we will leave Cube to travel. The
purpose of the travel is to relax. So training during trips will be
strictly forbidden. It’s also why our club is called ‘Healing
Kuhum. After clearing his throat once more, he put the paper away. What,
that was it?
“Today, as part of the orientation, we’ll take a short trip to
From here was what I wrote. The club members would form 2-people groups
and go to Seoul.
“We’ll have a theme for each trip. Since today’s meant to be an
orientation, we’ll just have a free trip without anything complicated.
But instead of traveling alone, we’ll split into groups of two.”
Here, Kim Suho would be paired with Chae Nayun and run into trouble while
they were looking around a museum. As for that trouble, I would be able
to experience it soon.
“Then we’ll start by drawing lots.”
Drawing lots was completely based on luck, but I could choose my fate.
Thanks to my Gift, ‘Observation and Reading,’ I could see the content
of the lots clearly. With my hand on my chin, I fell in thought. Should I
choose Kim Suho? Or Chae Nayun?
“I’ll go first.”
At that moment, Yoo Yeonha stepped up. I watched her pull out a name
without much thought. In the next instant, I realized I overlooked one
vital information. It was the oddity known as Kim Hajin.
The lot drawn by Yoo Yeonha had the following name.
My heart dropped immediately. But there was no change in Yoo Yeonha’s
With her usual mask in place, she stared at me with calm eyes.
Thankfully, everything else had remained unchanged. Kim Suho became pairs
with Chae Nayun, and Yi Yeonghan became pairs with the club president.
After drawing lots was over, the members gathered by their pairs and
stood in front of the Portal.
Portal, the cutting-edge technology utilizing magic science and
engineering. With a height of 15 meters and width of 30 meters, this
giant gate was built in over a hundred places throughout Korea. With it,
going from Seoul to Busan took less than 3 seconds.
“Cadet Kim Ha Jin. Confirmed.”
The Portal operator gave us a seal. This seal would resonate with the
Portal and take us to Seoul.
The club president went in first. The next to enter the swaying blue
Portal was Kim Suho, Yi Yeonghan, Chae Nayun… and finally me.
A strange feeling enveloped my body, but only for a moment.
In the blink of an eye, the surrounding scenery changed to an unfamiliar
place. A futuristic mixture of blue and grey, it had to be Seoul Portal
Station. With just two steps, I had crossed the East Sea.
“It’s 12 P.M. right now, so we’ll meet back here at 6.”
Because the Portal we were at was connected to Cube, there wasn’t
anyone around. But the Portal next doors connecting Seoul to Busan should
be crowded with people. After all, they were both global cities.
“For now, follow me.”
Following the club president, we received another seal from the Portal
employees before leaving the Portal Station.
After coming outside, I could immediately see the words, ‘Yongsan
“You can go wherever you want as a pair using the public transportation
system. For today, we won’t require you to write a report, but make
sure you’re back by 6. If you’re late, you’ll be penalized.”
With a warning from the club president, cadets left as pairs.
Yoo Yeonha didn’t say anything to me, but I followed behind her for now.
When I was checking out how Yongsan Station changed from what I knew, Yoo
Yeonha suddenly came to a stop. After quickly turning around, she blurted
“Let’s split up.”
“…Hm? Oh, yeah, sure.”
Yoo Yeonha most likely planned to visit the guild her father ran. I was
fine with it. I planned to join Kim Suho no matter what Yoo Yeonha did.
But as though I ticked her off again, she glared at me with her hand on
“Don’t talk to me so casually.”
“This is the second warning. There won’t be a third time.”
I knew that she wasn’t bluffing. If I did it a third time, she might
really get back at me in an unthinkable way.
“Yes, I understand. I apologize.”
Young lady Yoo Yeonha then walked away without a goodbye. It was clear
how much she disliked me.
Thus, Yoo Yeonha and I split up after just 5 minutes of arriving in Seoul.
“Whew, I thought I was lost.”
After switching buses three times, I finally arrived at the National
Weapons Museum. Replicas of weapons excavated by Korea were displayed in
Today, an incident would occur here. With a trembling heart, I walked in.
—Daddy, what’s that?
—Oh, that’s the Four Tiger Sword…
Perhaps because it was a weekend, the museum was bustling with parents
and children who hoped to become Heroes.
But no matter the size of a crowd, there was bound to be people who stood
out. Chae Nayun and Kim Suho were such examples, but I could only see
Chae Nayun for now.
“…I want it.”
Smacking her lips, she was eyeing a bow in a glass display.
But my target today wasn’t Chae Nayun. Looking around, I began to look
for someone. It didn’t take long. The main character’s tall and
handsome features easily stood out.
Approaching him furtively, I scanned the weapon Kim Suho was looking.
Thankfully, it was a weapon I knew.
“Is this the famous Seven-Branched Sword?”
Before the Korean Peninsula was yet unified, the king of Baekje, the then
most powerful kingdom, had bestowed this iron sword to the Japanese
emperor. It was a historical weapon said to have been found in the final
room of the Wiryeseong Dungeon.
Kim Suho’s sight turned to me from the Seven-Branched Sword. However,
it seemed he was at a loss for words. I had a good idea why.
“Ah, right. Sorry, I didn’t expect to meet you here, so I forgot.”
With a kind smile, he pointed at another section of the museum.
“Apparently, the rifle Napoleon used is here. Have you seen it?”
“Yep. Apparently, it was a reward from a Dungeon in France.”
According to my world setting, any weapon used by a legendary figure
could become an artifact. Since that was the case, it wasn’t weird for
there to be Napoleon’s rifle, even though I didn’t mention it in my
Though I did want a rare weapon, I wasn’t really interested in a
“No, I don’t think I’ll have time.”
I unintentionally answered without zeal.
I felt strange talking to the main character I wrote. I wasn’t sure how
to describe this feeling, but it definitely wasn’t pleasant.
Kim Suho was handsome, exceptional in martial arts, and had a fantastic
personality. He was too perfect, so he felt inhumane. That was why some
readers rooted for Shin Jonghak.
Anyways, it should be about time.
I tapped on the ground with my sneakers.
Right when Kim Suho was saying something…
A thunderous sound reverberated through the museum. In an instant,
everyone became silent.
Koong. Koong. Koong. Repeated thuds pulsed through the deathly silence.
The sound resembling the footsteps of a giant creature soon led to the
sound of something breaking. The atmosphere in the museum took a quick
“What is that!?”
The unknown led to anxiety, and anxiety quickly led to panic. Ordinary
visitors screamed and began to run. However, only death was waiting
outside. The safest place was the museum’s inside.
“Stay here! Don’t go out!”
Knowing that it would be dangerous outside, Kim Suho shouted.
Currently, the outside of the museum was being attacked by an
intermediate rank monster and its subordinates.
Just a single intermediate rank monster posed little threat. A Hero would
arrive in less than a minute, and 20 minutes was enough to take care of
the entire situation.
But that wasn’t the only problem.
There was a Djinn here. Simply put, it was a double-pronged attack. After
coming to a scene, Heroes went to the most dangerous area. Since the
museum had security guards, it was less dangerous comparatively, putting
it on a lower priority. Taking advantage of this fact, the Djinn
Association dispatched an assassin to target a child considered by the
Hero Association to have a special Gift.
A sharp sound resounded. It was the sound of glasses shattering. The
source of the sound wasn’t far away. Turning towards the direction of
the sound, Kim Suho shouted.
Chae Nayun had broken a display case and was taking out the bow inside.
“Are you crazy!?”
“No, I’m perfectly sane.”
Though it was only a replica, it was still an item on display. The
museum’s siren rang and its defense mechanism activated. In just three
seconds, all exits closed down. People panicked even more, but
thankfully, even an intermediate rank monster couldn’t break through
the barriers blocking the exits.
“This is better than stopping people one by one and warning them.”
With that, she cleared her throat and shouted at the panicking citizens.
“Everyone! Stay still! It’s safer here! We’re Heroes too!”
“Shut it. Don’t just stand there, grab a weapon too.”
“What? Why should I?”
“Because it’s the outside that’s dangerous”
Looking at us… No, at Kim Suho, Chae Nayun created a magic arrow on her

She pointed with her eyes. A man wearing a black coat was standing there.
Before Kim Suho could say anything, Chae Nayun fired her bow without a
shred of hesitation.
Her magic arrow pierced the man’s throat. Immediately, Kim Suho froze.
He seemed dazed by Chae Nayun’s sudden murder.
Any ordinary person would have died to her arrow. However, the man
grabbed the arrow sticking out of his neck and pulled it out. Black magic
power then rose up from his hand, burning the arrow to ash.
The man then turned around, facing the direction the arrow came from. His
eyes burned red, as fierce hostility shot out of him.
Without a doubt, he was a Djinn.
Kim Suho’s face paled. Just like Chae Nayun, he shattered a display
He took out the Seven-Branched Sword. Though it was a replica, its
faithful reconstruction made it similar to a high grade weapon. It should
be strong enough to destroy a Djinn of this level.
“Oh, that’s a nice weapon. I heard it splits into seven branches.”
Chae Nayun approached with a smirk and stood by Kim Suho’s side.
I also took out my handgun. I thought about standing next to them, but
after consideration, took two steps backward.
I was still too weak. If I showed off too much and got targeted by the
Djinn, that would be the end of me.

between friends). Yeonha uses a strictly polite speech, while MC is using
casual speech that would be between friends/people of the same age.
