Levelling up is the only answer (1)


It’s always been like this.”


Joon-young replied To Park Yura as if it was no big deal.


Ever since he was a child, he had a weak physique, so he would always fall asleep in the vehicles.


But when he arrives at his destination, he wakes up automatically.


Not only his family, but also his friends found that strange.


“It’s no big deal, it’s just that if I don’t wake up in time, my body will get tired, so it wakes up on its own.”


“Oh, okay.”


If he misses his stop while sleeping in the bus, he’ll have to go back over to the other side and get a cab.


It’s Something that is very taxing on his weak body.


It’s a kind of survival instinct.


‘ Normally I would be very tired by now, but I’m still able to endure it.


Five minutes of sleep is not enough for him to recover from his fatigue, but this must be due to his physical strength having improved a lot after being awakened.


Kang, please change into this special protective suit.
Please don’t forget to return it later.”




“With that suit on, you are permitted to go inside the gate without any restrictions, but don’t go near the gate at all, and if there are any bloodsuckers or mosquitoes around, please take care of them.”




Junyoung received the protective suit and a helmet from Yujong , the suit kinda reminded him of a bulletproof vest.
The suit was meant to protect him from monsters that might come out of the gate.


Both the helmet and the top have the Taegeuk (TL: yin yang) symbol and the emblem of the National Guard attached to them. 


“Ah, can you please  do me a favour and spread the mana mosquito net again,The previous one disappeared after the duration was over”


“I’ll spread iit on you, it’s not difficult, but can you still get bitten by a mosquito even when you are wearing such a strong protective suit?”


From Jun-young’s perspective, there is no need to worry about mosquito bites when she is wearing a special protective suit.


“Yes, it may seem like it, but mosquitoes can really find their way inside through even a tiny gap in the suit.
According to some theory, certain species of bloodsuckers are said to use mana to feed on blood.”


 ‘Using mana to feed on blood, insects like that exist?.’ 


If that’s true,Then it means that even armour can’t protect you from them.


It gives me the creeps just thinking about it.


‘I don’t think they’ll be able to bite me, but you never know.’


I haven’t yet tested whether the ability ‘Vampiric Immunity’ will work against dangerous mana-using bloodsuckers.


“I see.
I’ll spread a mana mosquito net on you then, but be careful.”


Jun-young then Immediately spread the Mana Mosquito Net on Lee Jun, Park Yura, and Yoo Jong-soo.


They all nodded gratefully to him and rushed out of the car as the red glowing net quickly turned invisible.


That left Jun-young alone in the car.


He calmly removed his suit and pantsuit and changed into a special protective suit.


‘I’ll never wear a suit again.’[the normal one]


Except for job interviews, suits would only get in the way during missions.


‘I heard that Hunters usually have their own protective suits, and when I have the money, I too get one for myself.’


Of course, I can get support from the district gate management team during missions like now, but I have to return it and so it’s inconvenient in many ways.


‘Phew, I’m ready now.’


Junyoung took a deep breath.


He looked out the window and saw a huge outer wall.


And a thick fog enveloping the inside of it.


“The atmosphere here is so deadly.”


Ever since the gate appeared in the Children’s Grand Park, the park stopped functioning , and a powerful outer wall has been constructed in a certain radius outside the gate.


‘It’s ridiculously high.’


‘They say these walls are impenetrable even to missile bombardment, is that really true?’


Well, it has to be that strong inorder to keep the monsters out.


If the gates were to be breached, the monsters that come out of it shouldn’t be able to attack civilians.


‘I heard that there are even drones deployed with various combat and surveillance capabilities.’


There are even electric traps for mosquitoes and other insects in the barrier.


‘Still, I don’t think they’ll be able to catch all the insects.’


 understand why the new mosquitoes have become more aggressive recently.


‘Anyway, let’s go.’


I open the car door and step out, feeling a sense of nervousness.


I know I’m not going to be hunting monsters inside the gates, but my heart is still pounding nonetheless.


This will be the first time Jun-young, a normal person, has been inside the gate’s outer wall since the gates opened and the Age of Awakening began.


“I’m not a normal person anymore.”


He’s an Awakened Hunter who’s proudly earned his F rank today.


‘It’s quite comfortable in the special protective suit.’


Despite the helmet and thick clothing, I have no difficulty in moving around.


He even has a radio attached to his helmet that lets him hear the situation at the Children’s Park gate.


“Emergency! Gate south gate, Giant black-horned beetle spotted! At 4 o’clock direction! Urgently requesting for support”



The roar of a giant monster can be heard from somewhere!







Followed by the sound of guns and other weapons being fired, along with the horrified screams of people.


“This is no joke.”


A cold sweat broke out on the back of Jun-young’s neck.


When the gate goes out of control, the boundaries of the gate become ambiguous, allowing monsters to escape from the inside to the outside.


During such times, I have heard that not only hunters but also members of specialised units under the National Guard have made significant sacrifices to prevent those creatures from causing harm.


Junyoung is currently in the midst of such horrifying situation


-A rank Hunter Kwak Hye-na has killed the Giant  Black Horned Beetle!


-Situation at the south gate, 4 o’clock, has been cleared! Request assistance for treating the wounded!


It looks like Kwak Hye-na has killed the giant beetle monster.


-South Gate South, 7:00 o’clock! An armoured centipede has appeared!


-A rank Hunter Kwak Hye-na has killed the armoured centipede! Gate South, 7 o’clock, situation resolved! There are no victims.


From the sounds of it, Hye-na Kwak is handling the situation pretty much by herself.


If it weren’t for her, the casualties would have been considerable by now.

‘As expected of  an A-rank hunter.’ 

It is impressive to see how they easily defeat  such formidable monsters such as the giant black-horned beetle and armoured centipede, just hearing their names sends a shiver down the spine.
They truly have remarkable skills in swiftly resolving such situations


Weeng~ Weng Weng~!!


meanwhile, Junyoung is busy swatting away any mosquitoes that comet around him


‘Since I came here to catch mosquitoes and not to engage in combat, I might as well focus on catching mosquitoes diligently.’


Suddenly, a tiny bug catches his eye.


It has wings, but they’re too small.


‘I don’t know if it’s a bug or a bird’


But when I take a closer look, it looks like a bat, so is it an insect?


It’s too small for a bat, so it might be a bug, but it’s also too big for a bug.


“It looks really weird.”


It doesn’t matter whether it’s a bug or a bat.


After all He’s the natural enemy of the vampires.


“Come at me!”


I said.


Surprisingly, at that moment, the creature’s form becomes blurry and then it disappears from his sight.


 It was as if it had turned invisible.




Even that won’t fool Junyoung’s eyes, who has the ability to detect bloodsuckers.






The amount of blood splattered is a bit excessive compared to a normal mosquito.


It must have sucked off a lot of human blood from somewhere.


Its scream is also much louder than that of a normal mosquito.


[You’ve levelled up].


At the same time, a pleasant notification came.




My level has increased to 3.


【Name】 Kang Junyoung

【Level】 3

【Mana】 160/160


Apart from the increase of 40 points in mana, there doesn’t seem to be any noticeable changes.
However, feeling a surge of energy, it feels like both his stamina and strength have slightly increased.


“So, I guess I have to kill those strange bloodsuckers to level up?


Previously too, I levelled up when I killed a strange mosquito that felt more like a wasp than a normal mosquito.


And just now, I levelled up by killing a bat-like bug.


‘Could they be a dangerous type of bloodsucker?’


I have a strong feeling that they are.


‘Then I have to find them and kill them.’


I look around to see if there are any more of those dangerous bloodsuckers, but there are only ordinary mosquitoes.








Whether they’re dangerous or not, they’re still mosquitoes.


-Emergency at the gate’s north entrance! Dangerous bloodsuckers have been spotted! Requesting support from the special containment team!


That’s when I heard the urgent voice.


It’s coming from the radio inside the helmet.


-At the west gate, a large number of dangerous bloodsuckers have been spotted! Urgent assistance needed!


-Emergency at the gate’s north entrance! Numerous dangerous bloodsuckers are appearing! Re..requesting support from the s..special containment team… aaaah!


What is happening there?


Looks like there’s a lot of trouble going on because of those dangerous bloodsuckers!


Just then, someone rushes toward Joon-young on a motorcycle.




‘Hunter Park Yura?’


Although she’s wearing a helmet and a protective suit, it doesn’t hide her slender figure.


Kang, get on the back, we need urgent backup at the west side of the gate right now!”




“The Children’s Grand Park gate has four gates, east, west, south, and north, and where Mr.
Jun-young is right now at the east gate.”


It would take quite a while to go to the west gate, but it shouldn’t take long on a motorbike.


“Wait a minute, Ms.


“What’s wrong?”


“You’ve been bitten by a bloodsucker in two places, haven’t you?”


The words came out of Joon-young’s mouth reflexively as he approached near Park Yura.


“How do you know that?”


Park Yura was stunned.


Two bloodsuckers had bitten her on the back of her left hand through a tear in her glove that occurred while she was fighting against the monsters.


Even after treating the wound with medicines, she is in great pain.


However, the wound is not visible from the outside because she has put on a new glove after receiving first aid.


It’s surprising that Jun-young recognizes it right away.


‘Do you have a clairvoyant ability?’


I can detect bloodsucker bites.
Take off your gloves for a second.”




Park Yura grimaced in pain as she pulled off her gloves.


There are two wounds on the backs of her hands, which were swollen and reddened, and looked awful.




But as soon as Joon-young lightly rubs them with his hand, the swelling disappears.


Not to mention, her skin has been restored to its original condition.


Park Yura’s eyes widened Inside the helmet.


“Wow, it’s like a miracle.”


“You’re fine now, right?”


Thank you very much.
Honestly, I was holding it in, I really thought I was going to die from the pain.”


“I’m glad I could be of help.”


It’s a strange feeling to have someone thank you for healing their wounds.


I feel like I’m a healer.


“I can’t believe you’re just an F rank, you look more like a C rank healer.”


“Well, it can only work on bloodsuckers, so it’s not that great.”


“These days, it’s rare to find a gate that doesn’t have bloodsuckers in it, so even if you’re a non-attribute Awakener, Mr.
Jun-young’s ability is pretty special.
Anyway, we’re in a hurry right now, so get in the back and hold onto my waist so you won’t fall off!”




JunYoung got on the back, and Park Yura said as she immediately set off.


“Actually, when the mana mosquito net was still on, the bloodsuckers didn’t approach us, but as soon as its duration ended, the bloodsuckers seemed to recognize it and swarmed us like ghosts.”


“I’ll unfold it again then.”


A red beam of light shot out of Junyoung’s hand and enveloped Park Yura’s body.


“Thank you, but how did the duration increase to 30 minutes?”


“I just levelled up to level 3.”


Jun-young smiled with pride.


“Really? It must have been difficult for you to kill monsters by yourself.”


“I just killed a few mosquitoes.”


“Oh my God, you can level up just by killing mosquitoes?”


Park Yura looks back up from her motorcycle in surprise.


“Not ordinary mosquitoes, I have to kill the stronger ones.”


“Still, it’s a total scam.
But congrats on levelling up!”




It’s a strange feeling to be congratulated for levelling up.


Especially from a Rank C professional Hunter.


I finally feel like a realHunter.


-Dangerous bloodsuckers appeared in front of the West Gate.
The Specialized Quarantine Team is using flamethrowers, but it’s not enough! We have many casualties! We need assistance!


Meanwhile, the urgent voice in my helmet continues.


The number of bloodsuckers is so high that they’ve even mobilised flamethrowers.


“We have to hurry, hold on tight!”




Park Yura sped up her motorbike when she heard the message.


Jun-young couldn’t help but wrap his arms around her waist to keep himself from falling off.


‘This is embarrassing’


Why do I always get sleepy when I’m on a ride?


‘This damn stamina of mine.’


It’s not even a bus or a car, it’s just a motorbike.




Park Yura turned around at the sound of a muffled snore from behind her, giving a puzzled look.


“What, are you sleeping now?”
