Chapter 11 – Scouting
After shopping, Hannah and I moved to the cafe on the second floor of the Hero Mall.
“I want to invite Park Woon-ho to our company.”
The expected words came out.
“I have no intention of entering the company.”
I replied bluntly.
“I will treat you the best. I’ll give you 10 billion as a down payment.”
The expression on Hannah’s face was that of what it would be like.
It was quite a lot of money to just refuse.
It was said that it was a new company, so it seemed that there was quite a bit of money.
Did you get a good investment?
No, even so, this was too ridiculous.
‘Is it a scam?’
For a moment, I couldn’t help but think that way.
Usually, the F class will be between 5 and 1 billion.
Class D receives more than that, but at most it will be within 3 billion won.
Who would give 10 billion to a class D awakener who had just awakened just because he was crazy?
No one knows the growth rate of an awakened person.
There are cases where people who used to be F-class become A-class, and there are cases where they never rise from F-class for the rest of their lives.
The reason why there was high interest in high grades was that there was a higher probability that a higher grade would rise above it than a low grade.
I don’t know if I had awakened to Class C or Class B, but it’s really rare in the world to be judged as Class C or higher awakening from the beginning.
So once they are judged, they get all kinds of spotlights and make headlines in the media.
Not to mention the soup tube.
I said everything because I, who don’t watch TV or the news, know of an awakened person named Kang Woo-jin, who was plastered on Nu Tube.
Kang Woo-jin, a proud Korean who received a C grade in the first magic power measurement and the world was shocked and turned upside down.
Fortunately, I won’t be appearing on Gukmong Tube because up to grade D comes out rather casually.
But 10 billion….
‘Do you think I’m a newbie who doesn’t know anything?’
It’s not even the age to be seen as a newbie in the first place.
Either that or…. I couldn’t quite understand.
“What are you looking at me for, suggesting that?”
“I see great potential in Mr. Unho.”
Hanna said confidently with twinkling eyes.
I couldn’t tell if it was a compliment on the lips for recruiting or if it was sincere.
Even so, it didn’t really appeal to me.
Even if she was pretty, joining the company was another matter.
A down payment is a kind of shackles.
10 billion was a lot of money, but considering my skills, it seemed like I would collect that much money quickly.
It was because Hunter was focused on performance rather than salary anyway.
Due to the existence of the inventory, supporter costs would also be reduced, and since there was no intention of hunting for a party, it was possible to eat alone.
Hannah, who must have read my sad expression, came out with a very low profile.
“What do you want? I will do my best to match.”
Hanna started attacking with sad eyes.
How do you usually do Awoken Scouting?
It makes no sense to think about it from one to ten.
Doubt only grows.
I’ve never seen how the recruitment negotiations go….
I was briefly attracted by the large amount of money, but I still didn’t want to be tied down by the company.
“I do not know….”
For some reason, it seems that they rated me highly for no reason.
The desperate pretty face was cute to me.
The stern horn-rimmed glasses and the pretty face went well together.
No, it’s pretty, so it suits you well.
The saying that the face is fashion was true.
The feeling of fullness of the chest visible underneath.
Feeling my gaze, Hannah blushed.
A bobbed-haired woman who appeared to be a secretary next to her glared at me.
Did you look too blatantly? I wanted to, but I decided to lay a steel plate here.
We become awkward with each other only when we are flustered.
Hannah too she blushed at my gaze but she said nothing else about it.
Are you patient for recruitment?
But the female secretary seemed to be constantly wary of me.
“Is it really not possible? If you tell me the conditions you want, I will listen to everything.”
For some reason, it looked like it desperately wanted to hold onto me.
Even so, I didn’t feel the same way.
She is a beauty
You can’t say you’re not interested.
I have no intention of entering a place like a company, but I am interested, so I guess I came to the cafe like this.
But pretty is pretty, and this is this.
You may never see it again after that.
I’m sorry, but I can’t help it.
Hannah grabbed my hand and said.
“I don’t want to miss out. Mr. Unho.”
It’s a line that can be mistaken for someone who doesn’t know.
On the other hand, the feel of her hand was good.
However, seeing her earnest appearance, I thought that there was nothing to lose by doing what I wanted.
As Hannah smiles broadly, her surroundings light up.
“It’s too early to like it yet.”
“Yes! Yes! Just say the word!”
Hannah seemed to be making progress, and she seemed excited when she saw it.
I don’t know how long I’ll keep that face….
“Then let me tell you the conditions. For now, I will hunt only when I want to.”
The female secretary next to her frowns.
“That means I only hunt when I want to, and I won’t do it if I don’t want to.”
Hanna crossed her arms over my first offer, seemed to ponder a little, then she said.
…Did you really understand?
This condition just means that you do not have to work for a down payment.
This was an absurd condition, but there was still one more left.
“Please allow me to terminate the contract at will.”
“No, that’s nonsense!”
Hannah and the expressionless female secretary shouted in surprise.
When the female secretary, who was always expressionless, showed a surprised expression, it was fun in its own way.
I wondered if I could even listen to the bullshit of a D-class hunter.
On the other hand, I was relaxed.
It was because I had no intention of signing a contract in the first place.
Hannah bit her lip and pondered.
She wondered if this was something to ponder.
I slowly admired the beautiful woman who was leisurely troubled.
I wanted to see this kind of beauty in real life if not today.
The female secretary seemed anxious that Hanna might make a strange choice.
“It’s okay. Sister.”
As if she had made up her mind, a determined light flashed in her eyes.
Unbeknownst to me, half words came out.
Is this woman the real company representative?
A representative could not have made such a decision.
No, because you are the representative, can you make this decision?
Hannah was so urgent that she dragged me into the office for her contract.
It seemed like a fairly sound company, occupying an entire 10-story building in Gangnam, Seoul.
And he forced me to sign the contract.
Thinking about the terms of the contract, I wondered if it was a meaningless action, but….
[There is no specific toxin clause in the contract.]
I had a competent secretary in my head.
The content of the contract was an absurd contract that only listed the benefits I would receive.
No matter how bad it was, it was to the extent that I felt a bit of remorse.
It seemed like it would be okay to listen to one or two requests if it wasn’t bothersome.
“It’s Korean food now! Please take good care of me!”
When I finished signing the contract, Hanna shook my hand with a bright expression.
Seeing his liking, I held his hand with a trembling expression.
However, there was still doubt in a corner of his mind.
“Maybe I went too low-key from the beginning?”
When Unho left, Jina worriedly said a word.
“He was a person who had no intention of joining the company from the beginning. I have to do something like this.”
“Are you really okay?”
Jina’s face still didn’t straighten out.
“A contract like this, if he changes his mind….”
Jin-ah swallowed her afterword that 10 billion would fly away.
“It will be fine. It’s a contract full of his benefits. I don’t see myself as someone who dares to take advantage of this.”
Hanna replied as if nothing was wrong.
“Even if it’s okay now….”
“He deserves it.”
“That…. Is it enough?”
“How did your sister look?”
“In my eyes, I only saw you as a sinister man who scans your body….”
Jin-ah said with a slightly disgusted expression.
Haha. It was a bit blatant. Still, somehow I didn’t feel so bad.”
Hannah laughed cheerfully.
Haha. Just joke. Because my sister is too rigid…. Is that all?”
“I don’t feel like someone who just woke up. Strangely, there are no gaps. I honestly can’t guarantee she’ll be able to subdue him.”
Hannah was a Class D Awakener.
“The way he lifted the hammer was amazing.”
Hanna put on a hazy expression as she recalled the scene she had seen during the day.
“To be honest…. That was something anyone could admire.”
Jina agreed as if she couldn’t help it.
“Then my eyes must have seen it right.”
“How much is it?”
Jina said curiously.
“It’s more than America’s s-class hero Ella.”
Hanna said she with a confident smile.
“If my eyes are not wrong, just by putting his name on this company, we will be able to benefit more than 10 billion.”
