Episode 158: Although Kang
Seol was embarrassed, he calmly looked at Frannan.
Although Frannan gave Kang Seol a special status as a disciple of the Holy Spirit, it was true that he did not understand it.
Kang Seol knew reality well and guessed that Frannan would not be a magical teacher for him.
So why does he insist on calling himself Jeon Ja’s teacher?
‘Are you saying you will take me with you unconditionally?’
In fact, if there was a conflict here with the Iron Man Daeju, it was the treatment of Kang Seol that was problematic.
Because the Great Master of the Iron Lion was clearly a man with the power to lead, and Kang Seol was not one of them.
It was clear that Daeju Iron Man was also deliberately trying to cause conflict by taking advantage of this fact that everyone knew.
If a conflict occurs, it will naturally be quite difficult for Snowfall, who is a transfer agent, to participate in this expedition.
Kang Seol expected that everyone would roughly guess the inside story.
However, sometimes, even if it is an obvious move, if the situation is urgent, you can cover your eyes.
Cartejin, one of the Aspects of Libra, said.
“Are you finally planning to take on disciples?”
Another Aspect, Ridwen, was equally surprised. Although the reaction was slightly different from Cartejin’s.
“But… transference? Why did you say it was transference?”
“That’s right. Is there any reason to take on a former student as a disciple? “If you have any ideas, I would like to find a good one among the Libra children…”
Frannan cut out Cartejin’s additional words and rejected them.
“Put it away. I will live my way. “I don’t think that status is important, whether you are a former child or a Libra child.”
Cartejin shook his head and changed his attitude.
“yes. Even if it’s a transference, where did you make up your mind? “From the Tower’s perspective, the most dangerous thing is for Frannan’s individual achievements to disappear.”
“ha ha ha! “But is it such a good thing that I am finally planning to pass on my teachings to future generations?”
“Yes, because of Yurin’s incident…”
When Cartejin, who was in a good mood, mentioned Yurin’s name, Frannan dismissed the conversation.
“I think it’s better not to bring up her story at a place like this.”
“Hmm, that’s right…”
The conversation did not proceed with the stories of the saints, but one of the mercenary leaders took advantage of the momentary pause in the conversation to change the topic.
“Anyway, how do you get into that Alkatron or something? “I understand that we have to cross the border one more time, but…”
the dwarf Yofimba answered.
“yes. First of all, let me tell you, this is a very time-sensitive and life-threatening job. “If we’re not all determined, we can’t join you on the road to Alcatron.”
“what? That much? why? I heard that the Relic Society cleared the way? “Isn’t it just a matter of passing through there and arriving at Alcatron?”
Jofimba scratched his thick neck and looked troubled.
“Well… our elite advance team checked not long ago, and all the roads that had been prepared in advance were ruined due to a landslide. Thanks to you, I have to go through it step by step from the beginning.”
“what? … Then, as we move forward so slowly, Libra will already be watching us from heaven.”
“If you speak carelessly, you’ll be in trouble. “This is definitely a scale.”
“That’s right, you have to say what you have to say. It turns out that our problem is not a lack of power. Do you think there is another group around here that cooperates with Libra that has this much power? Everyone came running to me in the middle of a crisis. The problem is that even with all this power gathered, there is a high probability that we will run out of time.”
After hearing those words, Yofimba’s expression turned strange.
It’s like, should I say this or shouldn’t I? That facial expression.
“Um… so… um… there’s actually one more problem.”
“What? If you have something to say, say it quickly. “Because it’s a waste of time.”
“We are splitting the search team into two.”
“We don’t know how long it will take to clear a road through the detour, and even if the detour is operating properly, there is a limit to the number of people who can travel per day. In short, if everyone heads there now, the rest will just end up waiting. So, the idea is to form another search team on a possible route. “I happen to have quite a bit of power to spare.”
“how? Even if we split it in two, there is only one path?”
“No, there were two paths from the beginning. “We just forgot.”
“… no way?”
“No, that’s not it!”
Everyone seated was in an uproar.
As everyone guessed, Yofimba brought up the topic of the issue.
“I plan to use the road occupied by the Black Thunder tribe.”
“Puhahahaha! You’re crazy. Has the Relic Society gone completely crazy? “I would rather die by falling off a cliff than being eaten by monsters.”
“I agree with you too. Black thunderstorms are quite strong among trolls, right?”
“Are you crazy enough to crawl in there?”
Jofimba was in trouble. I knew there would be opposition from the expedition team, but the reaction was more intense than expected.
“Trolls are monsters. “Even if they promise to let us pass through safely, they may change their minds at any moment and throw us into the cauldron.”
“It’s not wrong.”
The Great Iron Lion’s expression changed strangely and he tripped over Mael.
“Hey what do you think?”
“… You mean me?”
“Yes, you. “It’s the same troll, right?”
“Let me tell you what I think: not all trolls are the same. Most trolls display aggressive tendencies, but there are also those who do not. Also, belligerence is often controlled depending on the leader’s tendencies.”
“okay? “What about the leaders of Black Thunder?”
“Brother… I know. “I have not received any other information.”
“ha ha ha! “It’s completely blank, right?”
“Because I was not a leader and had no contact with them.”
Mael said this and glanced at the snowfall. Kang Seol seemed to sense something from his gaze and had a conversation with someone in the shadow space.
It was Jamaard, the chieftain of the Rock Tooth tribe, a being who had a connection with the chieftain of the Black Thunder.
‘Were you listening? Do you know the leader of the Black Thunder?’
– You know, the brothers Ungola and Ungus, they are good guys.
‘If we talk, will you let the expedition go safely?’
– Well… I’m not sure because it’s been such a long time since I’ve seen it. Still, since they know how to discern between interests and interests, maybe a conversation will work?
The Great Master of the Iron Lion said.
“I think a more realistic suggestion would be to fight the monster unarmed and win…”
Yofimba responded, suppressing his anger.
“Well, I don’t have that feeling. So, I’m thinking of only accepting applicants here.”
“You are a person who wants to commit suicide. “Where do you plan on going, dwarf?”
“me? I’m taking the detour. Even in the relic society, there are only a few people who remember the original topography of the bypass. “One of them is me.”
“Okay, I’m going that way too. And I put conditions on it.”
“… condition? “What are the conditions?”
“I’m not going with that troll and this guy here on the detour. The two are told to either skip the expedition or join the Black Thunder suicide team. I won’t work with people I can’t trust, no matter how much money they pay me. If you don’t like it, you can reject it. “The Iron Lion will be leaving the expedition immediately.”
“What kind of unreasonableness….”
“It’s the best I can give. “Because there are many lives on our shoulders here too.”
– Kiyaaaaa, your thoughts will change when you see Hammu, a monster dish hahaha
– Look at Mael Mu, I don’t know kana hahaha
– Mael is rejecting this hahaha In fact, it’s like breaking the window of a moving bus and escaping haha
– Bus driver Mael is confused;;
Everyone was taken aback by the unexpected proposal and only glanced at the faces of Kangseol and Mael. Depending on whether they accept it or not, it is decided whether the Iron Lion can participate in this expedition.
However, Kangseol and Mael were looking at each other and grinning. The answer came out of both of their mouths at the same time.
“I will accept it.”
The audience widened their eyes in surprise and asked back.
“Are you really going to do that?”
“You mean black thunder? “Don’t risk your life just because of your pride.”
“Okay, don’t think too hastily, Master of the Iron Lion…”
“It’s okay, we’ll head towards the Black Thunder.”
Snowfall did not make this decision because of the conditions of the wire. In the first place, it didn’t matter which direction he chose.
However, there were criteria for selection.
‘The path with Mael will be much safer.’
Mael was no ordinary troll.
Having experienced his mystical power in Yognathun, there was no need to hesitate in this choice.
– This is a dangerous combination!
– hey! Are you okay with this? Pandea! This combination might break you?
– Pandea: Ugh… After all, those two… The
Great Lord of the Iron Lion looked at the two in astonishment and then turned his head towards Chameli.
“We don’t know what might happen, so the pilgrims will split into two halves… but where will you be heading, Bishop?”
People thought that she would naturally head to where the Great Master of Iron Lion was. Anyone could see that the power on the bypass side was superior.
Chameli looked at the people in turn with a pitiful expression and said.
“I’m thinking of heading towards Black Thunder.”
The Great Master of the Iron Lion was forced to respond.
“Um… I understand.”
In addition to them, I was busy forming four groups for my side.
And when the general power was divided, Yofimba complained.
“Hmm… The black thunder is a bit weak…”
“There’s nothing you can do, so you said you’ll only accept those who want it?”
“Okay, it’ll work out somehow. Next is… the most important issue.”
Jofimba looked at the signs of Libra.
“Who will be in charge of this expedition?”
Even though the tower owner went missing, all three saints could not leave the place.
If those who are supposed to lead the next generation all die, Libra will fall into a dark age.
The answer came right away, and the answer was from Frannan.
“what? Frannon! You’re stepping forward….”
Suddenly, someone vomited and left the conference room.
Kang Seol confirmed that the woman who had just left was Prine.
Then her teacher, Blaine, followed and spoke.
“I’m sorry. My student seems to be sick, so I need to check on him as soon as possible.”
“Okay, let’s go out.”
‘Why are you doing that?’
Prine was fine until he entered the tower. In fact, I was literally running around while looking around this place.
When Kang Seol had such questions, the debate over who was responsible for the expedition was continuing.
“It’s time for me to make up my mind. “Thank you for calling me during this difficult time.”
“… Are you really planning on going?”
“I’d like to.”
“You’re not trying to run away?”
“Aren’t you trying to run away from what happened to Yurin? From that day on… I wanted to run away and die…”
“If you were going to run away, you wouldn’t have come here.”
“I came here to check. “Send it to me.”
Aspects Ridwen and Cartejin nodded cautiously.
“There’s no need to ask. “I will go with my student.”
“Then I guess Yopimba and the Great Lord of the Iron Lions will lead the way to the detour.”
Jofimba smiled broadly.
“Is it possible? ha ha ha!”
“Hmph, everything is decided for now, so I’ll get up. “I got a bit of a headache after being in the same room as the troll and Jeon.”
The Great Lord of the Iron Lion got up from his seat and tried to walk to the door.
【Bwak… BWW… BWW… BWW….】
Grief added a sound effect that babies would like to each step he took, making his appearance unsightly.
“This… this… huu… see you next time.”
The Iron Lion Daju was so absurd that he didn’t even have the energy to get angry, so he opened the door and disappeared without saying a word.
Snowfall stroked the lantern.
It was an expression of praise in its own way.
Grief muttered quietly.
【Kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk… If you praise my evil deeds, your fall is not far off. Forward… soon.】

Da da da da…
Blaine was running around the tower, looking for Prine. I thought I would find it quickly, but it took more time than I expected.
Still, I managed to find it.
She was stuck in a corner and hugging her knees.
“Prin… you were here.”
Blaine looked into Prine’s eyes.
be the eyes radiating a hazy energy.
“Did you see it?”
“Yes… I saw it. “I didn’t want to see it, but I saw it.”
She had a glimpse into the future.
No, I was able to catch a glimpse of a dark fantasy that I thought was the future. It wasn’t clear and it was hard to make sense of it, but it mostly fit together well.
After seeing the ominous future, she hid somewhere like this.
“What… did you see?”
“I don’t want to talk about it… I can’t talk about it… They’ll think I’m weird. “I am not cursed.”
For Prine, this ability was nothing short of traumatic.
Before the Aquarius Tower took her away, she was called the child who foretold a curse.
“It’s okay, it’s okay. We won’t interfere in their affairs. Because it’s the only thing they have to deal with. “I just… watch.”
“Tell me about the future beyond the curtain you saw…”
Prin opened his mouth.
“Blood and corpses… I saw everyone dead.”
“Many people involved in this… die. “It’s such a terrible future…”
Blaine pursed his lips. So that she can talk comfortably.
“Alkatron… I guess it’s not an ordinary ruin, right? “This series of events is so strange… so… scary, Master.”
“Prin, what did you say you do with such terrible nightmares?”
“He told me to imagine putting it in a room… and closing the door.”
“Yes, that’s right. And I’m looking for an adult. It’s natural that a child can’t do anything. yes?”
“Yes… I am… a child.”
“Tell me, who is the adult who can clean up this room of terrible nightmares?”
Prin’s eyes became hazy again.
And said someone’s name.
“He is an adult. I could see a faint light in his appearance.”
Blaine smiled brightly at the answer.
“As expected, I saw the person correctly.”
