Everyone Else is a Returnee – Chapter 9: I Hunt Alone – 1

The day after he exorcised the low level monsters, Friday – That day, Yu IlHan left home to go to college again.
Despite the fact that there were no lectures on Fridays.

“You’re going to college, son? Be careful, run away if you see monsters. It would be good if you just rest at home.”
“Today will be alright. Mom, you stay at home and don’t go out, okay?”

Yu Ilhan had succeeded in making a blank Friday somehow during his course registration for first year, which he didn’t even remember now, but it was more stifling for him to stay at home now.
This was because the only thing he could do at home was to eat popcorn in his room due to his mother receiving a positive bonus on her child-worrying skill due to the 10 years of separation.

But he also couldn’t tell his worried mother that although he couldn’t use mana, he was so awesomely strong because his body developed to the extreme. The easiest path was to fool his mother, who couldn’t remember her son’s lecture timetable after 10 years, and come outside.

‘I know how she feels, but…’

And that was exactly the reason he had to move. To become as strong as possible before dangerous monsters come out, to acquire strong skills and get used to mana, to protect his mother and father and for him to live well.

“I want to have a workshop. I want a car too.”
[You need to earn money.]
“I want to use mana quickly.”
[You need to level up.]
“I also want to make a good defensive equipment.”
[You need to kill strong monsters.]

That’s right. All conclusions required for him to hunt monsters!
Therefore Yu IlHan wore a big bag over his shoulders, and was walking with the cloth-wrapped steel spear in his hands. He was looking for monsters himself.

Of course, although the current Republic of Korea was in the middle of being on guard as if it were a war due to the simultaneous monster incidents, such as the campus monster invasion incident, for Yu IlHan, who even evaded God’s eye before, evading the eyes of the military who were unknown whether they were from the Korean military or were idiots, was easy.

No, even so, it would be alright for one of them to find him, but nobody saw him as if they purposely looked away. It was a sad thing.

“Can we really find monsters this way?”
[Are you looking down on me, a higher existence? I will find it even if a slime comes out through a gap on the ceiling air conditioner so believe me.]

Even with the big talk from the self-proclaimed monster radar, Erta, he only snorted. At that moment, inside a store he was passing by, he saw a somewhat familiar scene inside the big TV. He automatically stopped his steps and looked at the screen. And when he did, he knew instantly.

It was the campus of the college he went to. Not only that, the ones rampaging there was the Ironm*n mask and the H*lk  mask!

[The government is tracking these people who rescued the people by appearing suddenly on the disaster scene and defeating the monster horde.]
[The two ability users, who are thought to be related to S university, immediately appeared after the monster horde appeared inside the campus and defeated all the monsters before a casualty occurred and suddenly disappeared. The researchers named these people ‘overbalanced’ ability users, and they are estimating that their mana adaptability was way too high and that they had recovered and raised several skills immediately after the return.]

You don’t have the qualification to research yet!

[Disasters are occurring in many parts of the world due to the Great Cataclysm. Many people are expressing their worry at the rapid proliferation of monsters, and are demanding fast countermeasures from the government. The government is aiming to create an elite ability users’ unit with these two ‘overbalanced’ as the center……]

There was no value to listen to it anymore. He was already annoyed due to not being able to use mana and they called him ‘overbalanced’?  If he wanted to follow his temper, he would’ve swung his spear, but when he thought about how he had to listen to a power sermon from Erta after he snapped the swing, the raging anger also calmed down.

He snorted with a humph and left that place.
Of course, he wasn’t that honorable to cooperate with the government. The things Yu IlHan had to protect was first himself, then his family.

In the end, what remained in his head from the news just now was one person.

“That H*lk mask, she was called Empress, wasn’t she?”
[Are you interested? Although I didn’t see her face due to the mask, her body figure was exceptional. Well, if the level is high, then she will become pretty due to the racial correction, so it might be worth it to look forward to. Anyway, men are all…]
“No, I’m not interested in that direction.”

It was a very Yu IlHan-like rejection, who couldn’t lie very well.
Erta thought ‘impotent?’ at that moment when she heard the answer. It was because even in her, an angel’s, view, the charm of the one called Empress was unordinary.

However, of course Yu IlHan wasn’t impotent. This was something that Yu IlHan himself had questions about: he didn’t feel that much excited even if he saw a very pretty woman or a woman with exceptional body figure. It definitely wasn’t like this from the beginning. Before being left out, it was normal.

It was the same with the ‘treasure’ that shone brightly behind the screen and not just real women. Worrying for his ‘son’ who didn’t react no matter how much put his strength into, he could only give it energy after trying many different genres. It was no different now.

He didn’t think about the reason until now for some reason, but now that he thought about it, he realized the reason instantly.

“It’s probably because I’m too used to Lita’s looks.”

Erta agreed with a sad voice.

[It’s probably that. You spent so much time with Lita, a higher existence, so you’re no different from being impotent with human women as a partner……]
“I’m not impotent, not an impotent!”

As it was a sensitive topic, Yu IlHan emphasized that point. However, the fact that no one glanced his way even though he shouted ‘impotent, impotent’ in the middle of the street, made him feel even more miserable.
He lowered his voice, despite the fact that no one paid attention to him, and spoke to Erta as if emphasizing.

“The thing I’m talking is about that power. the ability to use mana.”
[……Oh, as expected. It’s not such a special thing compared to you who can process monsters’ carapaces without mana. The name of ‘Empress’ is truly grand but the reason why God sent humanity to other worlds is to create cases such as that woman.]
“Except me.”
[Except you, who can hide his presence on a cosmic level.]

Yu IlHan thought that Erta became more eloquent with her words faster than Rita. Even while doing that, he was continuously moving his body.

[Wait. I finally found one. it’s near.]

At one moment, Erta stopped him. Her solid tone of voice indicated that it wasn’t anything common. Yu IlHan asked carefully with a voice comparable to picking potato chips with his hands.

“How many?”

I beg your pardon? In his surprise, Yu IlHan was almost about to reply in English.

[It’s the presence of a monster horde with a level 35 Direwolf as the head. Not in a dungeon, but on a field.]
“Do you perhaps remember what you said to me yesterday? You said that high level monsters wouldn’t appear since it’s the initial stages of the Great Cataclysm. Didn’t you say that even if they appeared, it would be in dungeons?”
[They didn’t fall for the trap. Due to the fact that their intelligence was too high.]

When Yu IlHan sighed due to the absurdity, Erta sighed even more magnificently than him before speaking.

[Truthfully, I thought it was strange even yesterday. No matter how I think about it, there’s a problem with a large number of level 10+  monsters appearing.]
“And you reacted so calmly then.”
[I didn’t want to show a ripple to a lower existence.]

    This was because the only thing he could do at home was to eat popcorn in his room due to his mother receiving a positive bonus on her child-worrying skill due to the 10 years of separation.

    Just thought about the fact that he’s probably at least 20 times older than his mother… probably more 😀 That must feel pretty weird. Cool that he will help the angels/god out. His reward will probably be pretty sweet. He’s going to be a seriously overpowered existence, but that’s obvious since he will become a higher existence later on, he said he was planning to become one after all.

    “But he also couldn’t tell his worried mother that although he couldn’t use mana, he was so awesomely strong because his body developed to the extreme.” – WHY? WHY YOU CANT???
    “The easiest path was to fool his mother” – NO, that’s dumbest path
    I mean you don’t need to run around yelling about your inhuman strength(not to mention it won’t work because of concealment), but why fooling you own parents into believing you’re still ordinary and then going outside??? That precisely make them worry about you more -______-
