SSS-Grade Cafe in Front of The Dungeon - Chapter 110
Translated by cabinfourtranslations.
Last evening, Choi Yichan visited just after the cafe was closed.
“Unyaaah (this human, is he back now?)!”
“Waeong, waeooong (Let’s play! Play with me)!”
The animals in our house circled around Choi Yichan and started crying. In addition, suddenly, Ash began cleaning the store, conscious of Choi Yichan as if he were looking at his competitor.
The cafe has already been closed and the cleanup has been finished. The inside of the cafe, which was cleaned using the skill ‘The Floor is Shiny’, didn’t even have a speck of dust. There is nothing more to do.
In other words, all of them are just being a distraction.
I sealed Ash and the animals in front of the television in the next room with snacks. An occult movie was airing at the moment. They finally became quiet as they focused on the screen.
“Yichan-ah, sit down. Would you like some coffee?”
“Haha, I’d appreciate it if you give me some.”
I made ice cream coffee with plenty of ice cream in a glass. As if it wasn’t cold, Choi Yichan emptied his glass right away. Seeing him drinking it well made me feel better.
“Kuh, haaa, it’s really delicious.”
He tried to put the glass, which had been emptied to the last drop, down on the table. I reached out my hand in bewilderment.
“Yichan-ah, be careful….”
But it didn’t break.
There was a clatter, but there was no crack in the glass. It was a perfect control of power.
The Spartan training of the Dungeon Management Office seems to have worked. Indeed, Korea is a country with a great passion for education. You can achieve anything even with a short-term education.
Choi Yichan looked around the store with his chin resting on his hands. It must have looked like something new for him. I met him in the dungeon where Cthugha resided, but he was so busy that he didn’t have time to look around the store back then.
“A lot has changed.”
“Huh? What? Oh, here?”
The street is now slowly getting soaked in the year-end atmosphere. The period during his absence is not that long in terms of date, but in the meantime, the inside of the store has changed a lot.
As rewards from the system, the tables have been upgraded to the ‘Comfortable Table’. Now, this place also has a mysterious door, a walk-through counter, and a new part-timer.
“I’m glad you seem to be doing well.”
Choi Yichan touched the pendant hanging around his neck with his fingertips. It was the pendant containing the dark ether that I gave him before.
Not only had he already acquired the skills, but he had become an S-Class Hunter, so he didn’t need to wear that pendant anymore. I briefly explained this before, but he was still wearing it.
“Are you still wearing that pendant?”
“Uh-huh. I like it.”
“You like it? The design?”
The pendant is just a black stone the size of a pinky fingernail hanging from a plain string. It’s a very boring design to be an accessory.
“No, it’s not like that…..”
The slightly drooping eyes closed softly. A bright smile followed.
“It’s a long-awaited gift that Rieul finally gave me.”
Thank you, but saying that made the atmosphere very awkward. Feeling a tickle on my cheek, I quickly got up. I cleaned up the empty glass, then I asked if he would like another glass.
“Oh, thanks, then!”
There was no shadow in that bright answer.
This time, I decided to make dalgona coffee. Just in time, the newly made dalgona hardened just right. After crushing the dalgona with a spoon, I asked while picking out a large piece and placing it in a glass.
“Yichan-ah, what were you trying to say when we met before?”
“Before you got dragged away by Jina-ssi and Hunter Kang Hyunwoo, you said you had something to say to me.”
I put the finished dalgona coffee in front of Choi Yichan.
“Just … I was going to say that now that I’m back, I want to drink the coffee you make.”
Choi Yichan picked up a piece of dalgona and chewed it. There was a crunching sound. He wasn’t lying when he claimed that he wanted to drink my coffee, judging from the light bar twinkling above his head.
I noticed that Choi Yichan swallowed what he was originally going to say to me and changed the subject.
Should I ask for more details?
If he’s changing the subject because it’s a difficult words to bring up, wouldn’t it be better to just not ask?
“Eih, I thought something’s happening. I can listen to you as much as you want without having to say something so vague like that.”
I answered lightly and thought about it in my mind.
Putting down the glass after a sip, Choi Yichan talked again. The smile that always hung on his face faded.
“Kwon Ri, the man from before….”
“Before? Who do you mean?”
“The man I saw on the day we returned from the dungeon.”
It was an ambiguous expression, but I immediately understood who he was talking about.
“Yes, that person. What is your relationship with him?”
I was about to answer Choi Yichan’s question, but I felt a strange gaze and turned my head.
Ash and the animals, who were supposed to be watching TV in the next room, poked their heads out through the crack in the door.
When our eyes met, they pretended not to see me, but it was already too late. What’s wrong with them? They looked like our conversation was more exciting than watching TV.
I came back after replenishing snacks for my distracted family.
What’s my relationship with Ki Yoohyun?
I know his true identity and his regression. The remaining answer was short, as I could not say that I felt a sense of homogeneity as a fellow regressor.
“Hmm … I’d say we’re close friends. I got a lot of help from him.”
Coincidentally, shortly before Choi Yichan arrived at the store, Ki Yoohyun called.
He informed me that I would not be able to contact him for a few days because he had some business to do. While on the phone, when I mentioned that I had decided to get help from Grandma Kim Deokyi to deal with the ticket scalpers, he said it was a good idea. Later, he added.
— Don’t worry, I’ll do something as well.
“Is that … you’re not saying that you’re going to find out what they look like and deal with them, are you?”
— Eh. I can’t use such an ignorant method.
“Hey, Yoohyun-ssi, I think law-abiding awareness is important.”
The phone was cut off with a cheerful but uneasy laugh and goodbye.
As I reflected on my conversation with Ki Yoohyun, Choi Yichan looked at me with a thoughtful expression.
“You got help … from him. Is that all?”
Come and read on our website wuxia worldsite. Thanks
“Yeah, that’s fine if it’s still like that.”
The grin somehow bothered me.
The moment I was about to ask again.
“I’ve decided to join The White Silver Guild.”
I remembered a conversation I had with Choi Yichan before. It was not long after he became an S-Class. He had firmly stated that he had no intention of joining a guild.
Why did he suddenly change his mind?
“Don’t tell me Kwon Jiwoon forced you to do so?”
“Ahaha, no. I asked him to join The White Silver Guild.”
“I’m glad if that’s the case … why did you change your mind?”
“Kwon Ri … Rieul-ah.”
He took a light breath and spoke calmly.
“It’s all thanks to you that I’m still alive like this and become an S-Class.”
“What? No. That’s not what happened. Your humility is too much.”
It’s true that I did various things to obtain the dark etheric item because I did not want to repeat the tragedy of the pre-regression past. However, the achievement is obviously his. In order to save the children, Choi Yichan jumped into the crack by himself and overcame it on his own. All I did was spice things a little.
I heard he raised his level a lot while he was gone. Level 40. Isn’t that effort also done by himself?
Even though I said so, Choi Yichan shook his head.
“Now that I have obtained this power … I want to do what I can in return.”
Maybe it’s because of the mood, his eyes seemed to be gleaming sharply.for a moment.
The tip of Choi Yichan’s finger touched my hand that was placed on the table casually. Even though it touched just a little, Choi Yichan was startled and removed his hand.
The atmosphere is strange. Choi Yichan added, scratching the back of his head awkwardly.
“So, I don’t think I can do a part-time job here. I’m here to say I’m sorry.”
“Huh? Well, of course you can’t. You’re officially doing hunter activities. That’s right, if Kwon Jiwoon gives you hard time, let me know.”
Choi Yichan closed his eyes and smiled.
He has an easy-going personality, an unreserved attitude, and even a bright smile. He is the Choi Yichan that I know, and yet now he seems to be somewhat complicated. I felt strange when I realised that I haven’t meet someone who wasn’t like this.
Ki Yoohyun, who said that he is a regressor, is trying to seal the Demon God.
The same goes for Choi Cedric, who seemed to be worried about his sickly younger sister.
Now, it’s Choi Yichan.
There are only people with complicated circumstances around me.
Gee, I couldn’t believe I did a regression, but I’m the only one who is simple?
“Waeooong, waeoolg (End of the story. Play with me)!”
At that time, Mieum and Lime popped out of the next room with a loud noise.
“Hahaha, yes, yes. Come here.”
Choi Yichan held Mieum and Lime in each hand and juggled them. I could hear the cries of our house’s animals, who excitedly spinning in the air.
Thank God. I’m still less simple than them.
Heck, I inadvertently compared myself to a cat.
As a human being, I feel a sense of crisis…..
It was one gloomy afternoon when Jinwoo heard the Hunter Channel note notification.
‘Hehe, another one caught.’
Jinwoo recently made a lot of money. It was due to the transaction for the numbered ticket of Cafe Rieul.
It’s none of his business what the cafe is all about and why all Hunters are making fuss about the coffee. The only important thing was the piece of paper that could order a drink was traded for at least 10 rubies and an average of 20 rubies.
A cafe in a remote place in front of the Dungeon Gate suddenly rose to stardom. They rake up money every day. so it wouldn’t be obvious if he stole some money from the stupid Hunters. It’s mutually beneficial.
One thing that bothers him is that the cafe owner recognized him.
She has good eyes. He doesn’t know how she remembered him in that large crowd. Still, it’ll be annoying if he get caught.
‘Hmm, I should save myself for the time being.’
After peeling off and eating the stupid Hunters until today.
However, the note contained something he had not expected.
“He said he would sell me numbered ticket …? This much?”
It was about wanting to sell the numbered ticket of Cafe Rieul at 3 rubies per ticket. It’s a lot cheaper than the market price.
Jinwoo went to meet the person who sent the note with a half-doubt. If it smells fishy, he doesn’t have to make a deal. It was based on the calculation that there was nothing to lose just by meeting him.
The place of the deal that went out like that.
The opponent was a young boy who looked like someone who was ignorant of the world. He held out three numbered tickets to him while paying attention to his surroundings with a clumsy attitude.
The calculator ran quickly in Jinwoo’s head. At least 20 rubies per numbered ticket, and 30 rubies at best. It was a tremendous business.
“You’re going to sell this to me? Three rubies per ticket?”
“Yes … I don’t have time to go get coffee … Looking at the Hunter Channel, it seems like you’re trading the numbered ticket, so I was wondering if you’d get this too….”
Jinwoo spoke in a condescending manner as if he had been generous.
“I’ll give you 10 rubies for three tickets.”
“….! Thank you.”
However, before the other person who received the 10 rubies goes back, he suddenly said this.

“I … I can trade numbered tickets tomorrow as well. The day after tomorrow too.”
“….is that true?”
The other person said that there are numbered tickets that can be obtained through connections, and that he can sell three tickets every day. He was a total pushover. Jinwoo was about to tell him to bring as much as he wanted right away.
“But … instead, there is a condition.”
