As it was the day to determine the owner of the arena, the martial arts were more flashy than usual.
Kang Seol and Daeha entered while facing each other.
The terrain of the arena was also newly created.
A rock wall that looked as if it had grown from the intersection of two mountain peaks rose in the center of the arena.
– It’s been a long time since I’ve seen such strangely shaped cliffs! The many bloody battles that Daesan fought here! I don’t know if you remember!
“It’s a strangely shaped cliff! “It’s the strangely shaped cliffs of Daesan!”
“I can’t believe I saw that again…”
– Until now, there has been no use of strangely shaped cliff terrain in Dire Battle to commemorate him. However, since today is the day to reveal the true legend of the great mountain, the strangely shaped cliffs cannot be left out. Isn’t it?
“You speak well!”
“that’s right! “It has to be a strangely shaped cliff!”
– Weather is also an important factor in the battle between gladiators, so we will not intervene in the stadium.
As soon as the clouds above the stadium cleared, rain poured down.
The rocky cliffs became slippery and it was difficult to maintain balance.
Snowfall blew out her breath as it rained.
My heart was racing.
‘I guess I end up fighting with my bare body.’
I’ve done everything I can, but I don’t know what the battle will be like.
Perhaps we should hope that Daeha is even a little weak….
Kang Seol turned his gaze to Seol Hong.
Seolhong was looking at him with worried eyes.
Before entering, Seolhong had a brief chat with Kang Seol.
– If it’s too dangerous, stop…
– Seolhong Isn’t that what you truly want?
– The heart of a warrior must reveal its desires most clearly. Otherwise, you will be consumed by desperation. Seolhong What do you want?
Seolhong hesitated for a moment and answered:
– I hope you… win.
Kang Seol smiled, placed his hand on Seol Hong’s head, and answered:
– Then it will come true as you wish.
Kangseol was her god and her parents who created a void that could not be filled.
It was time to take responsibility.
I had to give her a future full of newness.
The host’s voice immediately shook the stadium.
The king’s sword, which had an iron weight, was swung.
A red aura appeared… and soon his abilities were unleashed.
[Great Emperor’s Season: Uses Twin Dragons.]
[If the attack hits during the duration, an additional hit is triggered.]
‘It’s a season from the beginning!’
Kang Seol’s hair stood on end.
But there was something prepared for this time.
Kang Seol had a weapon that was neither summoning nor fighting.
It was a volatile ability gained through cooking.
[Uses the volatile ability Turtle Shield.]
[Basic defense increases by 300% and lasts until a certain amount of damage is blocked.]
An energy in the shape of a turtle shell appeared around Snowfall.
[Grand Emperor uses a single sword.]
[Even if the opponent succeeds in defending, a hit roll is applied to the attack.]
In other words, even if Snowfall defends, the Twin Dragon’s ability will continue to be displayed.
The shell shattered in an instant.
There was a reason why all the bloody battles between the great rivers ended within one minute.
It made absolutely no sense to have a gladiator who could take such ignorant attacks.
[Use the volatile ability Ink Entanglement.]
[Damage reduction is applied by 2% each time the opponent is hit. Ink Entanglement can increase the damage reduction by up to 40%.]
though though the dark ink flowed like a wave over Snowfall’s equipment.
‘There’s no chance of winning if you just take damage.’
I’ve given up on finishing it in 5 minutes.
In the first place, that was Daesan’s job and not Kang Seol’s job.
It was all a play put on to attract the Great Emperor.
It’s hard to shake…
Kang Seol’s hands are stained black.
His fist collided with Gon’s handle, which the great king had swung.
That’s why King’s Gon was not an ordinary weapon.
The treatment was cruel.
It was even rougher than Daesan, charging like an angry bull.
whether) of his… With one strike from him, a part of the rocky cliff broke and fell to the bottom.
It seemed difficult to survive if you fell.
“How dare you tarnish your name?”
“How about we calm down?”
“Shut up! “I can’t stand to see you defile the heart of a warrior any longer!”
[The king uses a meteor strike.]
[The next attack is strengthened.]
It was fast and long.
‘I can’t stop it!’
Kang Seol shrank as much as possible.
The attack was aimed at his forearm and shoulder.
The snow bounced on the floor with the sound of bones breaking for a moment.
Thanks to the blood from the beginning, I would recover quickly, but the pain was still pain.
The king’s attack was fired from the air to the ground.
This is what it would be like if iron fell from the sky instead of rain. There was a huge crack in one of the cliffs.
The snowfall barely escaped, but it flew up with the impact.
He had a hunch.
This match could end like this.
* * *
A knight was wandering in the black darkness.
A huge snowstorm blocked his path.
Snow, I don’t know when it piled up, was up to my knees and hindered my walking.
It was a place that couldn’t be cold, but it was cold. I thought it might have been possible if it were colder, but the problem was that the rules of space kept changing.
– Hardships will continue. It will take some time for this space to settle down.
He said he knew and fully understood.
– You can go there with me. Because I’m equally worried.
Karen’s worried words were fine and I declined. In the first place, it was difficult to implement because Ur was strongly opposed to it.
– He will be alive and well. Because he’s that kind of guy. If you walk slowly, you will get there. This isn’t the first time something like this has happened. You can do it well, right?
– … take care of him. This is something only you can do now.
I also took Jamard’s request to heart.
So I loaded up my luggage and set off on a trip. Ur said that time inside and outside may not be the same.
What this means is that it is impossible to know whether the time he is experiencing right now may be just a moment from the outside, or whether it will be a time of similar weight.
The hardships kept coming.
Ominous nightmares were the same, and cold, heat, and even feelings of helplessness often came.
Even though I was nauseous, I walked forward.
‘No, is this the right direction?…’
He also didn’t know.
Because the traces left behind by his power are gradually fading.
If the trace disappears completely, then you will truly be abandoned in this space.
Ur will come to find us, but we don’t know how long it will take, and what’s more important than that is…
‘You can’t be late.’
The owner will be waiting.
them or anyone.
Now the snowfall is gradually getting worse and before I know it, the snow has reached my waist. It was a wonder that I could still walk.
The feeling of helplessness came once again.
Life is bound to be cynical towards others.
That was the same for all life. It’s just that much different.
Others can never be more important than me.
‘But why does this thought suddenly come to mind?’
Someone’s words came to mind.
The words of someone I trusted a long time ago.
– Life is cynical.
The person who told me this.
The strongest knight in Montra.
It was Lane, the Knight of the Sun.
– Among them, people are like that. No one cares about other people’s lives. When faced with a difficult situation, look elsewhere. It’s about avoiding injustice.
He said this:
– There is no need to blame them. Because it’s natural. People can do that. You can walk while looking at the ground, or you can turn away from others. But we shouldn’t do that.
Lane engraved his meaning into him as if engraving it.
– Articles shouldn’t be like that. We must look at others face to face.
– Because then you will trust us. Because they trust us and will take on some of the burden they have shouldered.
Lane spoke while looking at Montra’s Emperor Jin from afar.
– Because it will help them. Because drivers are idiots who always want to be helpful.
Lane quickly disappeared into the distance.
After Lane left, a door appeared.
Any trace of his strength just now had completely disappeared.
there was a knock on the door.
“may I come in?”
It’s polite yet funny.
The door shrunk and tried to disappear.
I put my hand inside it.
“No, I’m going in.”
Finally, after a long gap, we arrived.
Karuna came back home.
Into the arms of the family I left alone.
* * *
At that time, Snowfall was going through severe hardships.
Snow falling back and forth after being hit by Gon. Even during that time, I was able to keep standing up because I thoroughly avoided critical points.
But he gradually reached his limit.
‘The Great Emperor has surpassed the previous Great Mountain….’
The only variable in his plan was the current conqueror, the Great God.
It was clear that the power he possessed was stronger than that of Daesan in the past.
Otherwise, he wouldn’t be so upset.
‘Ability level alone… has its limits.’
There was a certain amount of anxiety, but the heart of a warrior was the place where this was keenly realized.
‘You can recover your body with the blood of origin… but how do you defeat it?’
One minute of the Great River and five minutes of the snowfall had already passed.
Daeha continued to attack and Kang Seol was busy defending it.
“The great lobster is so strong, isn’t it?”
“The snow is falling that much?”
The gap between conquerors and challengers was wider than expected.
The Great King’s Gon vibrated.
[The King uses Limb Crush.]
[An opponent hit by Limb Crush has all health recovery reduced by 30%, and if this attack takes more than 20% of maximum health, all health recovery is reduced by an additional 10%.]
He used both arms to block Gon, but Kang Seol ended up getting stuck in a gap between strangely shaped rocks.
He was hanging limply in the crevice.
“snowfall! “Don’t lose!”
“It’s wrong, I’m dying.”
Everyone here knew the harshness of the conquest. There were many cases where both challengers and conquerors died.
Daeha looked down at Kangseol and pointed to Gon.
“I don’t know why you brought up my brother’s name. But this one thing is clear! Everyone listen!”
The king’s voice filled the warrior’s heart.
“My brother Daesan is a true conqueror! Although he is now far away, he has never been defeated here in the heart of a warrior! The same will happen to Huin, who carries on his brother’s wishes! But the author will now…”
That’s what I tried to shout.
But His Majesty’s words could not continue.
The energy of the snowfall came rushing in like a dam bursting. Shoot
As soon as the lightning struck, the appearance of snowfall was revealed.
“Puh-huh… Daesan has never been defeated here?”
“… It’s a coincidence.”
The snowfall turned completely black.
The night crow was restored.
However, the appearance was different from before.
When he merged with Jamard, a fang symbol symbolizing Jamard was drawn around his mouth.
But now, no pattern has appeared, let alone the fang pattern.
Instead, blue light overflowed from his eyes.
Snowfall Someone other than Jamard came into him.
“It’s a little late.”
It was Karuna’s voice.
【You’re here! late! fool! fool! I waited!】
Clap la la la la rock-!
Grief rejoiced and returned to its original form.
In the form of the pitch-black sword that saved Santos.
Snowfall got up.
[Take on the form of the knight ‘Moonlight Knight Karuna’ and a night raven.]
[Absorb the abilities of ‘Moonlight Knight Karuna’.]
[Occupation: Knight status.]
Everyone gathered at the Warrior’s Heart held their breath. Everyone knew that it was definitely not because of the thunder.
Snowfall spoke softly to Karuna.
“No, it came just in time.”
