[I don’t want to go to work]

Three days passed faster than I thought. went.

During the three days of vacation that the guild gave me, quite a few things happened.

First, the down payment for me and the little boy came in.

15 billion won into my bank account.

I was the first to buy land with that money.

First, I first bought about 10,000 pyeong of land around the tent where I currently live.

Because the land was beyond the restricted area, which could never be reclaimed, I was able to purchase it at a fairly low price.

The original land owner I met at the real estate agent had a puzzled look on his face as he sold his land to me.

“What are you planning to do by buying this place?”

I did not hide my true feelings.

Because I knew you wouldn’t believe it anyway.

“It’s an investment for the future. “Maybe this area will be developed soon, right?”

The original landowner spoke to me in a tone that subtly mocked me.

“Oh yeah? Well, no one knows what the future holds….”

I don’t know.

I knew better than anyone else the value of the land I bought.

An area that is far behind in the rankings of the government’s [National Land Restoration Plan].

In short, it was a land that would be abandoned for at least ten years.

That is, if the gate connecting to the continent of Gaia had not been opened.

I smiled broadly and nodded.

“that’s right. “No one knows what will happen in the future.”

Except me.

In a few years, when the land I bought increases hundreds of times, this person will remember today’s events forever and strike the land.

Anyway, as of yesterday, the land around here was my private property and whatever I did was my own.

So what did you do?

“Hwaam~”

I yawned long and called out Sirutdeok, who had been busy since the morning.

“Sirutdeok. “If you’re tired, take a break and do it again.”

Sirutdeok, who was moving a log while sweating profusely, answered loudly.

“I’m okay, bro!”

boy. I’m in good spirits this morning.

I was lying in the hammock watching Sirutdeok at work.

So, two days ago. After returning from buying land, I said while eating dinner,

“I’m tired of living in a tent. Should I try building a log cabin?”

That was the starting point.

Sirutdeok, who heard the story, quickly raised his hand.

“Leave it to me, brother! “I worked in construction for three years!”

“When did you say you worked in the kitchen?”

Sirutdeok said with a confident face.

“3 years as a construction worker, 3 years as a kitchen assistant, 2 years as a cleaning company. “There’s nothing I haven’t done in my difficult life since I was young, brother!”

“…What are those natural servant-like qualities?”

“lol. thank you.”

“I didn’t mean to be thankful…”

Anyway, Sirutteok had been building a log cabin next to the tent since yesterday.

All I did was cut down nearby trees and remove rocks, and Sirutdeok took care of the rest.

It’s still just a frame-building process, but Sirutdeok is building a log cabin.

I took the comic books I bought yesterday from the table next to the hammock and read them whenever I was bored.

“If you’re tired, take your time. “They don’t say anything about building it late.”

“haha! “It’s not difficult at all!”

Of course, I knew that Sirutteok wasn’t doing this because he was nice.

They all do that because they want something.

I glanced at the sirutdeok and said.

“Isn’t it really hard?”

Sirutteok looked back at me, sweating profusely.

“It’s not difficult at all and it’s fun!”

“okay? “Then get me a drink.”

“…yes! older brother!”

Does that guy look like he just clenched his fists?

After a while, I was drinking the drink Sirutteok brought – I checked, but he didn’t spit – and looked at the kid next to me.

“Cool…”

There was another small hammock next to me, and there, sleeping, was a little boy with his bulging belly exposed after eating breakfast.

“This guy. It seems a bit dangerous…”

Although he was surprisingly slim considering the amount of food he ate, the little boy’s cheeks were quite chubby compared to when I first met him.

Should I put him on a diet?

Suddenly a thought occurred to me and I decided to just leave it alone.

Ji will take care of it later. If you don’t allow children to eat what they want when they are young, their personality will only worsen.

“Hmm~.”

I stretched out and yawned.

The wind was cool and the hammock swayed pleasantly from side to side.

I roughly threw the comic book I was reading on the table, closed my eyes, and enjoyed this sweet rest.

When I retire, I can live like this for the rest of my life, right?

“Hehehe.”

Just thinking about it made me feel better.

***

“Brother! “Lunch is ready.”

“Hmm….”

I guess I dozed off.

When I opened my eyes, Sirutteok was preparing food on an outdoor table.

On the table were soybean paste stew, bossam, and some freshly seasoned vegetables.

I’ve seen it a few times already, but I still can’t get used to it.

“…….”

As I looked at the table in silence, Sirutteok scratched the back of his head and said.

“I’m sorry, brother. “I didn’t have many ingredients left, so I made a rough meal with just what I had.”

“…For something like that, it’s not that bad.”

Actually, it’s not that bad.

It felt like I was using a free drawing ticket given every time I accessed a mobile game and a 4-star character came out of it.

I shook Lily, who was still sleeping comfortably in the hammock, to wake her up.

“hey. kid. Let’s eat.”

At the sound of ‘bap’, the little boy’s ears twitched and he raised his upper body like a jiangshi.

And the nose that sniffs.

The moment the analysis was finished, the little boy opened his eyes.

“rice!”

I grabbed the back of the kid who was trying to run straight to the table.

“Go and wash your hands before you eat.”

The little boy with pouting lips came back after washing his hands and before I could tell him to wash his hands, he created a flame and dried his hands.

…Like a scary little kid.

We started having lunch.

Since the Sirutteok arrived three days ago, the quality of the meals has improved surprisingly.

The little boy was more satisfied with that fact than anyone else.

The little boy praised Sirutteok in the awkward Korean he had just begun to learn.

“Sirutdeok. Eat well. good.”

That’s all we’ll do there. He pointed at me with his finger and whispered into Sirutteok’s ear.

“mister. “I can’t cook.”

You can hear everything, you damn kid.

“Oh yes…”

Sirutdeok didn’t know how to react, so he watched me.

To break the awkward atmosphere for a moment, I spoke to Sirutteok.

“hey. Sirutdeok.”

“Yes brother!”

“What is your family relationship like?”

For a moment, Sirutteok’s eyes turned red.

“My parents passed away when I was young, and I have two younger siblings who are in middle school and elementary school. The kids must be waiting for news from me by now…”

Sirutdeok’s twisted life story unfolded on the table.

I lost my parents at a young age and had to do anything to take care of my two younger siblings. I wanted to live faithfully, but the world was harsh and I had no choice but to go down a dark path…. Before I knew it, tears were forming in the corners of Sirutdeok’s eyes

.

“older brother! I am really reflecting. If given one more chance, I am confident that I will live sincerely…”

Taang!

When I hit the table with my spoon, Sirutdeok looked at me in surprise.

“hey.”

“…Yes, brother.”

I said with full irritation.

“In your eyes, do I look like a person who would release you out of pity if you pity me by saying something like that?”

“yes? “I didn’t mean that, I just…”

A look of embarrassment appeared on Sirutdeok’s face when his true intentions were revealed.

I said with a grin.

“Do you think I look like a kid? So, if I act nice and pitiful, you think they’ll let me go?”

“Oh no…”

I am physically 20 years old now, but inside I am a middle-aged person who has gone through all the hardships of childbirth.

He was a person who had been scammed in his life, had been stabbed in the back by a friend, and had experienced both the bitter and sweet tastes of life.

If you were trying to gain sympathy for me by only working for three days, you were very wrong.

You could bet money that he doesn’t have any younger siblings.

“I don’t care how you live. “I don’t care how I live in the future.”

“……”

Sirutteok’s expression became as hard as stone.

I kept talking.

“It’s been three years. Until then, you can’t get out of here. “They won’t even lift the ban.”

3 years. It was time for my retirement plan to be completed.

At that point, it didn’t matter where this guy went and what he said.

“Three years…”

Sirutteok’s face was stained with despair.

The guy lowered his head and cried.

“Then… do I have to continue living as a eunuch until then?”

Eunuch.

Yes. I made Sirutdeok impotent.

They used points to prevent blood from flowing there, but unless you know martial arts, you can never solve it.

That’s why Sirutdeok can’t run away from me.

For a man in his prime, impotence was, in some ways, a punishment worse than death.

“Three years… three years… haha haha…”

As a man, I could feel that those tears were real.

3 years is a bit harsh.

“Hmm.”

After whipping it to its heart’s content, it was now time to throw the carrot.

“good. “Then one day a month.”

“yes?”

I made a suggestion to Sirutteok, who looked up with tears in his eyes.

“I will lift the ban one day a month. And I’ll also let you go to the city for one day. how is it?”

In an instant, Sirutteok’s pupils widened.

Even if it’s just one day a month, that’s something.

It was much better than not being able to use it at all for 3 years.

“why? no?”

Sirutdeok grabbed my hand and shouted.

“no! great! Thank you, brother!”

I said, taking my hand out of his thick hand.

“okay. work hard. “After three years, I will give you a share, so you can live a new life with that.”

“yes! thank you! older brother!”

I put my hand on his shoulder and spoke seriously.

“If you run away or betray before then, you will die.”

“Of course, brother!”

“I’m not just saying this.”

I fired a deadly shot at Sirutdeok.

Ssssssut.

The sharply refined killing power tightened Sirutteok’s entire body and made him unable to move.

“I assure you, I will kill you in the cruelest way I know. If you can handle it, run away.”

Sirutdeok, unable to handle his own life, trembled.

“Yes, yes….”

That was then. Lily screamed, kicking my shin with all her might.

“don’t do it! “Don’t bother me!”

It didn’t hurt at all, but the little boy broke the mood I had managed to maintain.

I glared at the kid.

“kid. “If you run away, I think it’s all because of you.”

Lily snorted at my words.

“Sirutteok won’t run away! “Because I’m good at cooking!”

I don’t know what the logic was, but I decided to just move on.

By the time I finished eating lunch, it was already past 2pm.

“It’s already time…”

I was told to go to work when it’s convenient today, but if I go any later, I’ll probably be nagging.

I sighed and stood up.

“Kid. “Let’s go make money.”

The little boy, who was probably planning to go back to the hammock and lie down right after lunch, looked at me with a very annoyed expression.

“It’s annoying…”

Although I sympathize with this deeply, I still had no choice today.

I grabbed the back of the antagonizing little boy and lifted him up. And then I looked back at the sirutteok.

“Then take care of your home.”

“yes! older brother! “Take care!”

We went to work at the guild, seeing Sirutdeok off with a bright smile on his face.

“Sigh. I don’t want to go to work…”

Five minutes after leaving, I wanted to lie down in the hammock again.
