he didn’t bother mentioning that there were hundreds of hunters who mistakenly thought she was weak instead of understanding that it only meant that she was relatively weak.

She raised her index finger and set it down on the desk, effortlessly creating a divot in the wood.

“Uh…!” Seo-ah’s eyes widened.

I can do this only because you are here with me.”

Seo-ah looked at her skeptically.

Baek Eun-hee touched her shoulder.
“Shall we see if I’m right?” She then held out her little finger this time, then placed it on the desk even more gently than earlier.


There was a hole.

Seo-ah pursed her lips, speechless.

Seemingly surprised, Baek Eun-hee looked at her fingers and shrugged.
“Well, I was somewhat doubtful, but it really does work.”

“You’re a very strong S-class hunter.”

“No, I’m not talking about myself.
It’s you.”


Baek Eun-hee looked at Seo-ah like she was a precious object, ignoring her curiosity.
“Where did you come from? Did the system grant my wish?” She resisted the urge to pinch her cheek, lest she accidentally use too much force.
“Anyway, I don’t know why, but I think my strength increases for a period of time after we make contact.
The change doesn’t show up on my status window, but that’s what makes it even more interesting.”


“You don’t know why that’s happening?”

Baek Eun-hee smiled, but the question was sharp.
Seo-ah forced an awkward smile in return.
She couldn’t tell her that she was something called a supporter yet.

“I don’t.”

“Well, you can’t trust me yet, can you? That’s reasonable.
If you want to become a hunter, you’ll need at least that much vigilance.”

“Thank you for your understanding.”

“How about signing a contract with me? Let’s build trust step by step.
I’m much better than Yoo Ji-an, that guy with the bad personality…”

“Thank you for your suggestion,” Seo-ah interrupted.
“But first… May the next person please come in?” she called out.

Baek Eun-hee panicked.

“Opportunities must be fair.”

Seo-ah figured that if she really was that valuable, Baek Eun-hee would not get mad at her over that.
And as expected, the hunter only sighed and quietly retreated.

On her way out, she smiled, the kind expression vanishing as soon as she saw Yoo Ji-an.
“Hey, aren’t you just trying to scare her? Seo-ah, scream if he does anything.”

The door closed as Yoo Ji-an sat opposite Seo-ah, his eyes never leaving hers.

She clasped her hands under the desk.

He was so handsome that he probably intimidated celebrities with his looks.

“I was wondering if you were lying, but you really are an E-class healer.”


“I saw your status window.”

Was that possible? Seo-ah also looked intently at Yoo Ji-an, but nothing happened.

“I used my ‘Observation’ skill, so even if you try, you won’t be able to see mine.”

“…Oh, I see,” she mumbled.

By the way, why did he check if she truly was an E-class healer?

“I saved your life that day.”

Unexpectedly, Yoo Ji-an spoke first.
He didn’t seem like the type to show off, but what he said was the truth.

Seo-ah bowed slightly.
“Yes, thank you very much for saving me.”

“I went into that gate because I was looking for something—although it had opened earlier than I expected.”

“Wasn’t it a sudden gate? How did you know…?”

Yoo Ji-an answered her question with one of his own, “Did you find anything there? Bead-shaped items and the like.”

“No, I hadn’t been in the right state to find anything there.
Did you not find it?”

“I didn’t.
Instead, I found something even more peculiar.”

Seo-ah was starting to get used to his perennial gaze.

“In any case, if you have a conscience, you should just choose me as thanks for saving you.
