. Ark (3)
Jungwoo and his party set foot on the first floor of the Daesung Electronics office again.
Then, at once, a clear sound pierced the hall.
“”… … ?””
Jung-woo, who kills people without blinking an eye, turns around in surprise.
It was because I remembered the desk receptionist who had been extinguished here yesterday evening.
After confirming the source of the sound, Jung-woo exhaled a little as if relieved.
Naturally, the dead did not return.
The newly recruited nurse, Hyoshin, was only wearing high heels.
“”It must have been a day off. No matter how you look at it, it doesn’t look like work attire.”
As Jung-woo glanced up and down Hyo-shin, she also looked down at her own body.
Black leather high heels with gold zippers, tight-fitting jeans and a black see-through shirt.
A purple bra shone through the inside of the shirt.
“”Yes. Monday was my day off. I came out early because I had an appointment, stop… … .””
Perhaps after the incident, he was stranded at Gangnam Station.
today is Tuesday.
Her makeup, which she did not intend to remove until the second day, was scattered in several places, and even the mascara added to the sense of alienation.
“”Hey, can I take off my shoes first?”
When Hyoshin raised one foot slightly and spoke, Jungwoo shook his head.
“”It is now. The floor is like this.”
As he said, the lobby floor was a sea of blood.
Also, glass or marble fragments may be rolling around.
Jungwoo thought that it would be better to leave the shoes as they are until they get them.
“”Yes… … .””
Hyoshin, who heard the savior’s answer, bowed his head slightly as if he was sorry.
Still, he had a sharp impression, and his presence was considerable, even exceeding his height of 170.
Now wearing high heels, he is about the same height as Jungwoo.
“”Well, by the way, can we all get on the helicopter?”
When the atmosphere was about to become awkward, Seonwoong quickly changed the topic.
That’s not to say I didn’t ask a useless question.
This is because, in general, civilian helicopters are often two-seater.
Yongheon talked about this in a sad tone.
“”If there was such a problem, I would have told you first. It can carry up to seven people excluding the pilot. Because he’s such a big guy.”
Then, as if escorting Jung-woo, he stood next to him and stretched out his arms toward the elevator.
“” Let’s go. We’ll have to hurry to see if there’s a place to land near Lucky-dong.”
Yongheon takes Jungwoo as if he were his boss.
Seon-woong looked at him and stuck out his tongue.
After seeing Jung-woo’s power firsthand at CGV, there must have been a change of heart.
* * *
“”Wait a minute, I’ll check some spare fuel.””
As soon as Yongheon reached the roof of the building, he ran to the small storage in the corner.
Meanwhile, the other four looked at the helicopter they were going to ride.
Its curved body, like a dolphin, was painted white. And a blue stripe crossed the center of this fuselage.
On the side of the elongated tail, the word ‘Daeseong’ was written in large letters, and beside it, I could see a small cross mark indicating that it was for medical use.
It must be one of the dedicated planes for the president of the Daesung Group, who said he was not in good health.
‘It looked clean, but I think it stood out too much.’
When Jung-woo was a little worried about the color of the helicopter, Yong-heon ran again, sweating profusely.
Then he clasped his hands and looked at Jungwoo.
I was going to say something, but it was a gesture that this wasn’t a very pleasant story.
“”This must be an important story, tell me.”
When Jung-woo nodded, Yong-heon’s mouth was opened.
“”Perhaps not everyone knows how helicopters operate and what their restrictions are. So I’m going to give you a brief explanation.”
Jungwoo gave a brief answer, followed by an explanation.
“”First of all, what you’re looking at is a medical helicopter. Basic medical equipment and tools are provided inside. If you take it all off, you can ride one more person, but I don’t recommend it.”
Next, Yongheon pointed to the storage room in the corner of the roof.
“”There is a fuel cellar like that at the top of the main office buildings of Daesung Group affiliates. It usually contains fuel for about 20 hours of flight. But the problem is.”
Yongheon’s right hand rests on the fuselage of the white helicopter.
“”The fuel tank doesn’t hold 20 hours’ worth. You should consider it a maximum of three hours.”
only 3 hours?
Seon-woong looked surprised and looked at Jung-woo’s expression.
Surprisingly, however, this savior remained calm.
“So, you mean you have to come to a place like this periodically to refuel?””
He didn’t know much about helicopters, either, but he knew that it wouldn’t be as easy to roll as a car.
It was unexpected that the maximum flight time was only 3 hours, but if the pilot said so, wouldn’t that be the case?
“”Yes. Considering many variables, it is better to prepare refueling within 2 hours and 30 minutes, and refueling work must be done by a professional. Otherwise, the helicopter could be blown up entirely. All you need to know is that it’s very different from refueling a car.”
Yongheon made a serious expression and explained in a low voice.
In the end, the expert here is Yongheon himself.
In other words, it is saying that it is difficult to operate a helicopter if you do not keep yourself alive.
It may be meant to remind you that I have a role as important as a doctor.
Anyway, Jung-woo understood Yong-heon’s argument.
It won’t be a big deal if you stop by fortune-telling right now or go to Jongno.
It is an area that can be reached within minutes.
“”Are there any other peculiarities?””
“”Yes. That’s the only thing that could be a problem for now.””
“”Then let’s go.””
When Jung-woo gestured as if to open the door, Yong-heon pushed the boarding part door aside.
The interior that appeared through the door was much larger than expected.
Did I mention that 7 people other than the pilot can ride it?
If that’s the case, you can carry three more people in the future.
When Jung-woo signaled to come in from inside the helicopter, everyone paused once.
It was because the situation was changing so rapidly that the brain’s cognition and understanding could not keep up.
Yesterday morning, Earth spoke to me, and soon monsters began to slaughter humans.
And now he has wandered around the country with a man who would have done more slaughter than any monster.
And that too by helicopter.
“”Damn it, it’s like a real novel.””
Seon-woong smiled as if he had lost his mind and began to approach the helicopter.
Hyoshin, who saw this, was ironically relieved.
It was because he thought that he was not the only one who was unfamiliar with this situation and was afraid.
After she stood idly for a moment, someone next to her spoke in a cold voice.
“”Go quickly. Don’t do anything offensive to that person. If you want to live long.”
“”Yes… … ?””
When he turned his head toward the sound, he saw a doctor picked up by the CGV looking at him.
‘That person’ must mean a man named Jung-woo.
This time, the doctor made a harsh voice like a shove.
Hyoshin ran towards the helicopter with a frightened expression on his face.
* * *
“”My name is Donghoon Choi.””
The doctor said his name from 600 meters above Seocho-dong.
But the voice is different.
Helicopter noise was so great that he was using the helmet’s microphone.
‘Donghoon? It’s surprisingly common.’
If you expected the name to be unique because of its unique appearance, would it be a prejudice?
Jung-woo looked at Dong-hoon, who had reached out his hand first, as if curiously.
Then he grabbed his hand.
Donghoon’s hand was quite soft. No, it was so soft that I felt uncomfortable.
Maybe it was because he knew that his major was urology.
Feeling uncomfortable, he let go of his hand rather quickly, and Dong-hoon smiled inexplicably.
“”I, Donghoon, how old are you?”
This is Seon-woong’s question.
The answer was forty-two.
Doo doo doo… … .
From outside the helmet, the sound of propellers gnawing the air was heard nonstop.
But this inconvenience was worth it.
Because I was already passing through the outskirts of Seocho-dong.
Jung-woo saw the Supreme Court building passing by out the window, far below me.
As if reinforcements had just arrived, something was gathering near the entrance.
Come to think of it again, maybe it’s not human.
“”If this is enough, it will be an instant until the lucky dong.””
Like Jung-woo, Seon-woong, who discovered the Supreme Court, said admiringly.
Then he quickly hardened his expression.
Because there was nothing pleasant about what happened in Fortune-dong.
A herd of cats and a driveway that Heavenly Demon Lee crossed.
And Jung-woo’s vigilante massacre.
It was at that time that Park Jung-woo, who he thought was just an ordinary planner, began to feel strange.
“”Now we will slowly lower our altitude. After about two minutes, you can visually check the good luck movement.”
Yongheon in the cockpit has been briefing through the microphone.
Everyone’s eyes look out the window.
It has been a day since the entrance road was opened in Fortune-dong.
What happened in between?
There’s no way the remaining vigilantes could have stopped the scavengers, so it’s probably a monster heaven.
This was expected, and the real problem was a new entity that appeared on the second day.
An opponent enough to bombard the soldiers who were encamped in Gangwon-do before permission was granted.
“”Uh, that’s… … .””
After a while of silence, Hyoshin’s voice flowed through the microphone.
Then Yongheon, who grabbed the control stick, urged her.
“”What, if there is anything special, please tell me immediately.””
He must have been nervous because he was slowly getting closer to his destination.
“”So… … It’s at 10 o’clock from the front of the helicopter, and I don’t know what that is… … . Can’t you see the black one?”
It was probably the best explanation she could give.
Jung-woo understood only after seeing the direction Hyo-shin was pointing.
An entire area in front of me seemed to have been dyed black.
Then, as we went further down in altitude, the shape of that ‘black thing’ became clearer.
“”uh… … .””
Everyone was watching it, but nobody came up with an answer.
If you’re looking for the most similar thing you’ve ever known, it’s probably animal ribs.
Black, gigantic ribs rose from the floor and surrounded the whole area.
It was also reminiscent of an elephant’s ivory tomb.
The important thing was that the helicopter was still at a high altitude.
‘Wait, how big is it?’
As soon as Jung-woo realized the current distance from the target, goosebumps appeared in his neck.
It was also at this time that the Essence Shield was placed on his body.
It was almost an instinctive move, and Yongheon added it at the right time.
“”Everyone, that seems to be the lucky dong. Shall we go down a bit further? Unless we’re going to land farther, we’ll have to lower our altitude now.”
At that, Jung-woo hurriedly called the evaluator.
It was to ask for information about what he was seeing.
‘What is that? Can you tell me?’
Then he began to feel the presence of an evaluator in his head, where there was no sign.
However, no answer came.
– Not a perceptible distance.
Do you mean come closer?
“”Let’s go down slowly.””
At Jung-woo’s instruction, the helicopter descended in earnest, and the view of Unung-dong became clearer.
Now that I see, most of the village has retained its appearance as of yesterday. Smashed vehicles, buildings, roads, etc.
The difference is that the black bone fragments broke through and rose up to form a canyon.
Like wild grass growing among the concrete along the roadside, it seemed that something unidentified was encroaching on the area.
Hyoshin said in a terrible voice.
As she said, it was shaking very slowly.
Is it an organism? Or is it just swaying in the wind?
Since Jung-woo did not give a stop order, the helicopter continued to descend.
When it reached an altitude of 200 m, it was concluded that it reached a height of at least 10 m.
Besides, each was different in size. It’s like I’m not growing up.
“”Shouldn’t you be stopping… … ?””
Yongheon, who felt the atmosphere was unusual, asked to confirm, and Jungwoo was just about to say that we should find a safe place.
Then, suddenly, the evaluator opened his mouth in Jung-woo’s head.
– Farmer and Gongmyungsu.
‘… … ?’
I wondered what it was, but I soon remembered the first time I met the evaluator.
Didn’t we introduce the monster whose head spreads out like a funnel as a ‘cleaner’?
So, that’s what the evaluator is talking about right now.
What is the name of the entity that appeared in front of you?
‘Wait, but… … .’
But why two names?
Jungwoo’s question did not last long.
Because there was an unbelievably sharp sound from somewhere.
It felt similar to the beep that Earth sent out yesterday morning when it took a survey.
However, it was clear that this caller was not from Earth.
As soon as he heard the sound, Seon-woong, who was sitting across from him, started vomiting.
“”Ummm… … Whoops!””
Excessive gestures continued to the point of thinking it was smoke, but the things that came out of his mouth were real.
“”Billion, a billion!””
Dong-hoon, who was calm in front of a pile of corpses, was no exception.
Everyone in the hall, except for Jung-woo, vomited with the momentum to pour out the intestines.
The pilot also couldn’t control his body properly, so it is natural for the helicopter to start leaning.
“”Come on, come on! Kim Yong-heon!””
Embarrassed, Jung-woo called the pilot desperately, but the other party didn’t seem to be in a state to answer.
Only a disgusting sound echoed from the headset inside the helmet.
