Chapter 115. Kang Sebin
There was a single man in the entire formation who was actually doing well compared to others.
He looked at the copper giant quickly charging towards him, then spoke as he cut it down to pieces.
He had thought he experienced all sorts of strange things in this world, but that clearly didn’t seem to be the case. There were still new things to experience. Kang Sebin shook off the dust of his sword and smiled faintly.
“Looks like everyone who was with me got dragged somewhere else, though……”
The people of the Alliance who was with him beforehand.
Right now, every one of them had disappeared.
The only thing Kang Sebin knew at this moment was that whenever a red light flashed, the number of presences around him decreased significantly.
Kang Sebin got rid of all the statues around him and looked around.
“It’s about time……”
Soon after he said this,
A red light flashed in front of him.
A giant suction force came from this light, which threatened to pull Kang Sebin inside.
“I’m not usually the one to be forced inside anything, but……”
Kang Sebin let out a laugh and stopped exerting force.
Right now, he didn’t have much of a choice.
Plus, he was pretty curious about what was inside.
When Kang Sebin stopped resisting, his body got pulled inside the light.
* * *
“It’s coming, get ready.”
A red light flashed, and the experts of the church readied themselves.
How many times had they repeated this operation?
Soon enough, the number of experts being pulled in began to dwindle, then they seemed to disappear altogether.
But around the time they began to think that no one was left in the formation, a red light flashed.
‘Probably just one or two people.’
Whilst everyone was thinking this,
They realized that the trap they had set beforehand was completely empty.
The experts all looked into the trap with a surprised face.
Their faces stiffened right after they saw what happened.
“Careful. This one’s strange.”
The traps had all been cut cleanly.
Tens of them, at that.
Such a thing hadn’t happened before.
The leaders of each platoon quickly turned to look for someone.
“What is it?”
Sunwu Cho Rin.
When the woman walked into the scene with a bloody whip, one of the platoon leaders opened her mouth.
“The traps are all broken.”
“Is that so?”
“It seems that someone unbelievably strong is waiting for you inside.”
Sunwu Cho Rin stroked her chin.
According to the heir, there was supposed to be a pretty strong expert inside.
‘The problem is that I don’t actually know the expert’s true strength…….’
The stronger experts who came out of the red light so far were able to be taken care of by Sunwu Cho Rin and her subordinates.
But there were experts that not even peak experts like her could take.
‘If there’s a harmonious expert inside, things would get troublesome.’
Sunwu Cho Rin thought for a moment.
According to the Hidden Demon Corps, there was still three harmonious experts within the formation.
Perhaps now was the time to hand the things over to the heir?
But when she looked over to the heir, though, she could see him looked carefully into the formation modifying several things.
It didn’t look like she could bother him with anything anytime soon.
‘Should I just go for it?’
After thinking a bit, Sunwu Cho Rin nodded.
Even if a harmonious expert was inside, she wouldn’t die easily.
Before she decided to make her move, however.
A red light spilled out of the formation.
When the experts nearby made a surprised face,
A part of the formation got sliced off, and someone walked out of it.
A man was calmly walking with an excited expression.
A warning signal immediately went off in Sunwu Cho Rin’s head.
At the same time, she moved like lightning in order to stop Kang Sebin.
Her body was covered with blood.
Kang Sebin stopped when he saw her appear.
After looking at her from bottom to top, he sheathed his sword.
“I do not wish to fight a girl. Bring me your master.”
Sunwu Cho Rin’s eyes shook after hearing this.
It was a sign of her getting enraged.
“I see people like you from time to time.”
The type of people she hated the most.
When it came to strength, gender didn’t matter.
Talent and hard work did.
Sunwu Cho Rin bit her lips as she glared at Kang Sebin.
Unfortunately, the man was leagues ahead of her in terms of strength.
Perhaps she will get as strong as he is within a given amount of time.
But this was simply a conjecture and not reality.
Right now, the results of them fighting could be seen too clearly.
“I said I didn’t want to fight, not that I wasn’t willing to kill, girl. Don’t test me.”
Kang Sebin said this in a mocking tone.
The moment before Sunwu Cho Rin exploded in anger, someone stepped up behind her.
It was a boy wearing glasses.
Cho Ryu Hyang.
“Are you Kang Sebin?”
“And you must be the heir?”
“Indeed, I am.”
Cho Ryu Hyang nodded.
He looked at Kang Sebin for a moment, then opened his mouth.
“You’re quite lucky.”
Cho Ryu Hyang fixed his glasses and opened his mouth with a cold face.
“You should be thankful that you’ll leave here today alive.”
“You must be crazy.”
Kang Sebin’s lips twitched.
This kid was mad.
At this moment, a bright red light appeared from Kang Sebin’s sword.
Cho Ryu Hyang stood unflinching, even after a red gang qi blasted past him.
A man had blocked the gang qi for him.
It was No Jin Nyung.
The usual playfulness was completely gone from his face.
He was looking at Kang Sebin with a maddened look.
“Who the hell do you think you are to try and touch him? Hm? You bastard, I’ll test the strength of your bones personally today.”
When No Jin Nyung made a threatening face as he cracked his fingers like a backstreet thug, Kang Sebin made a surprised face.
Someone like this dumbass blocked his attack?
‘A harmonious expert?’
Kang Sebin’s cheeks began to tremble lightly.
Wasn’t this nice?
It was exceedingly rare to come across a harmonious expert.
Of course, this meant that the chance to have a fight with these people was low as well.
Plus, Kang Sebin was a man who thirsts for battle.
Meeting No Jin Nyung here was like finding an oasis in the middle of the desert.
“Come and get me, idiot.”
Kang Sebin straightened his posture and gripped his blade.
It looked like the man was about to charge in at any moment.
A black aura began to come out of No Jin Nyung at this time.
The aura seemed to pressure everything in its surroundings.
No Jin Nyung had taken his incomplete technique to its limits.
He let out a snort and walked forward.
“I’ll rip your spine right off.”
When No Jin Nyung punched after saying this, Kang Sebin smiled a toothy grin.
* * *
There was a woman hidden amongst all the experts of the church.
Due to her average face, she seemed a little hard to recognize out of the crowd.
The woman’s name was ‘Hwaryeong.’
She was an assassin planted by the Four Families.
She, who had managed to sneak in even under Sunwu Cho Rin, had but one goal.
‘Cho Ryu Hyang.’
She was aiming for the heir’s life.
Hwaryeong was very confused when she first got her mission.
The heir of the church… the future pope…… it was an extremely powerful position, but that wasn’t important.
The person she needed to kill was a child.
Why couldn’t the Four Families kill someone like that by themselves?
Well, after watching him for a bit, she could see that the boy was pretty talented.
‘But that’s it.’
Talented or not, the boy was still human.
A single stab should finish him off nicely.
‘Death is fair to everyone.’
Hwaryeong moved quietly to the heir.
This was the perfect chance.
Everyone’s attention was drawn to the current battle.
Hwaryeong looked around Cho Ryu Hyang quietly.
‘One, two…… three, four…….’
There were about twenty people stationed around Cho Ryu Hyang.
Mara’s Heavenly Wind Division.
The strongest troop within the church, who acted as the pope’s direct bodyguards.
They, too, were drawn to the fight in front, which made their guard at the back a little weak.
She could see them catching any debris that was about to fly into the heir.
Hwaryeong suppressed her smile.
‘I’m sorry, heir, but you’ll have to go with me.’
She was dead anyway, no matter what she did.
She was absolutely certain that she’d die before confirming her kill.
‘But it’s not that bad if it’s now, is it?’
Assassins like her were tools.
It would be pretty good to take herself out with someone as tremendous as the heir.
Hwaryeong comforted herself while saying this and moved.
She had found her chance.
She could see Cho Ryu Hyang’s neck.
Once she took out a knife, however.
Cho Ryu Hyang turned to look at her.
He seemed exceedingly calm.
Something was weird.
She had never anticipated this happening.
At this moment, a warning went off in her brain.
And once the heir put something down on the floor, her vision went dark.
Lim hak Gyum quickly emerged from the shadows to protect Cho Ryu Hyang.
He made a confused face when he saw what had happened.
Somebody who was approaching Cho Ryu Hyang had just disappeared.
When Lim Hak Gyum looked around a little longer and tried to leave, Cho Ryu Hyang opened his mouth.
“Not that way. I trapped her there.”
It was a formation.
Lim Hak Gyum looked at the heir as if he was looking at a monster.
Even he felt threatened when he felt something come closer to him, he could not react on time.
Someone who learned assassination all her life had tried to kill the heir.
He reacted far too late to her movements.
But the heir seemed to anticipate all this before it even happened.
‘Just what is he……’
It seemed that the heir had something other than just formations.
Just as Lim Hak Gyum was thinking this,
A red eye blinked once above Cho Ryu Hyang’s head, then disappeared.
