All the furniture in the suspicious room, which was blocked on all sides, was falling apart. The situation inside could not be seen from the outside.
However, I could easily guess what was going on inside from the sounds I heard.
“Hongcheon’s seizure cycle is getting shorter.”
“…I have nothing to say.”
“It is done. “It may have been impossible from the beginning for you, a mere member of the council, to improve the condition of Mr. Hongcheon, who has become a dragon.”
Banghyu frowned and bit the lawmaker.
The person currently trapped in that room was none other than Yongje Hongcheon.
Why does this gentle man make such noise and commit such destructive acts?
It seemed difficult to understand at first glance, but in fact, Hongcheon had been like this for a very long time.
From the very day I drank the dragon’s blood.
Hwageumu’s blood brought many things to Hongcheon.
Overflowing vitality, a strong spirit, long youth, and a lifespan that never ends. There were many cases where the children that came into the world through love with him were giraffes.
With this virtuous cycle established, the dragon tried to destroy the East, but in the end, the khan rose up thanks to the dragon.
Perhaps Khan would prosper forever.
However, every transaction in the world had a price. Hongcheon, who survived for over 300 years, sometimes lost his temper.
Although it is not recorded, when I was young, the impact of my loss of reason was so great that it devastated a village.
At first, the cause was unknown, but later he became convinced that it was a side effect of receiving dragon blood into the human body.
Hongcheon knew his condition well.
Therefore, he was restraining himself before something like this happened to prevent victims from coming forward.
Because I lost my youth, my strength diminished.
However, as vitality was also lost, the cycle of loss of reason became shorter.
“Not like this…”
Banghyu groaned secretly.

Taeyul had as many as five subordinates, including Yongseok. These five subordinates all possessed abilities comparable to those of other outstanding dragon stones.
Jinryeo, who collided with Snowfall at Yonggung, also belonged to this group.
Their names were Songno, Gyujin, Bangso, Gokbi, and Jinryeo, respectively.
Songno, who had grown a handsome beard, spoke to Taeyul.
“Have you heard everything?”
As Taeyul spoke calmly, Songno noticed.
“But you don’t seem surprised.”
“Isn’t it obvious? It was an action befitting each person. It’s petty and stupid. But…”
Taeyul looked a little disgruntled.
“It seems like the innocent Yonghwas suffered damage because of that robber ship.”
Gokbi, a woman wearing a black hairpin, added her words to Taeyul’s words.
“Isn’t this a good situation? It was just a hindrance anyway…”
Taeyul opened his eyes coldly and looked at Gokbi. Fat Bangso lightly touched Gokbi’s side with his elbow.
“Be careful what you say!”
Taeyul said this to Gokbi.
“Prepare for the future of Gokbi.”
“What do you mean?…”
“Think about Yong, not Yonghwa.”
Taeyul continued to explain to Gokbi, who did not readily understand.
“Yonghwa and others are equally capable of leading Khan. These are people whose talent is too valuable to be used like expendable items. “It is a foolish dragon to rejoice in their frustration.”
Gokbi got down on one knee and bowed his head.
“The girl was foolish and only focused on the task at hand. “I couldn’t figure it out until then. Please forgive me.”
“It’s not something that requires forgiveness. “Gather it.”
Gyujin, a large man next to him, changed the topic.
“Rather than that, there is an interesting rumor going around among the Yonghwas right now.”
“Yes, the rumor is that Seolhong’s dragon stone, Kang Seol, cut down the Hoeri River in one fell swoop.”
“I heard that. Aren’t there other rumors than that?”
“… Did you know? “It was so outrageous that I didn’t mention it for fear of contaminating Taeyul’s ears.”
Gyujin scratched his sideburns and said this.
“There is a rumor that Kangseol was able to fight against the phantom beast Baekkyung, even if he was just a stone’s throw away….”
“I couldn’t believe my ears when I first heard it. But surprisingly, the source of the rumor was other Yonghwa who miraculously returned from the world of Socheon. That means…”
“It could be true. “Isn’t that so?”
“… you’re right.”
Taeyul asked 5 people, no, 6 people including his most reliable ally, Yongseok Masong.
“What is Moby Dick?”
“Isn’t it a monster from the ancient times?”
“It’s a whale the size of a house. They say that if you see it in person, you will be astonished at its size…”
As the others responded, Jinryeo noticed it and continued.
“The power accumulated over a long period of time is so enormous that it is like the power of a dragon…”
“That is a rumor.”
Instead of acting like this, you should just stay quiet.
Jinryeo blamed herself for pretending to know for no reason and waited for the story.
“No matter how great the Moby Dick is, it cannot be compared to the dragon. Have you ever seen a dragon?”
“Oh my gosh, has anyone seen a dragon? “If there is, let’s meet… Ah, Hongcheon must have seen it.”
“yes. And I saw it too.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes, it happened when I was very young.”
“It’s not that great. “I only saw it once by chance, and there are still people who see it often.”
“yes? “Who is that?”
The five people who heard the story became stiff.
“God? “Did you see her with Taeyul when she was young?”
“No, the teacher of Shinyo is a dragon.”
“… yes? Wasn’t he a wandering Taoist who came down to the secular world? “I knew that, and that was actually the rumor.”
Taeyul shook his head and said this.
“She was taught by the dragon. “The dragon I saw as a child was her teacher.”
“Hehe… It’s hard to believe.”
“That is also the reason why there is no one among Yonghwa who can defeat Shinyo’s magic. Of course, there are some things about her that were outstanding from the beginning.”
“I found out for the first time. Isn’t it amazing that a dragon is your teacher? But wouldn’t it be a bit unfair to have a dragon behind you?”
“It is fortunate that we were able to successfully overcome this danger thanks to the dragon’s teachings.”
This is the end of the story about Shinyo’s teacher, and we move on to the first topic.
“But if Moby Dick is far inferior to a dragon….”
“Even so, it is a monster that is difficult for humans to deal with. His power has already reached its peak, and he is traveling around Socheon’s Gensokyo without paying attention. I know he’s a pretty aggressive fantasy beast, but I can’t believe he withstood his attack even for a while… It’s the same with Darksini, hmm…”
“What are you thinking?”
“Maybe the snowfall will be stronger than Jiangdu. And much more. He is perhaps the strongest of the dragon stones.”
Among those who were quietly listening, Ma Song, Taeyul’s dragon stone, was taken aback by this story.
“This b*stard was hot! Even though he is Taeyul’s dragon stone, he is a carnivore who neglects training! Masson! “I’m still lying down and listening to that guy!”
“What are you talking about! “I practice every day!”
“But you mean that skill! Now you’re even lying! If you trained every day, there’s no way you wouldn’t be the strongest! How long do you think you can endure Moby Dick?”
“… But wouldn’t it be possible to run away?”
“With my lord?”
“No, I can’t protect Taeyul.”
“Master, give me the authority to spank this b*stard. “I will kill you immediately.”
“Never give it to Taeyul!”
Taeyul rested his chin and said this.
“It’s difficult. One side is a Taoist who was taught by a dragon, and the other side is a woman who holds the strongest dragon stone… What does Tae-yul have that can fight them?”
“Aren’t we the ones?”
The atmosphere suddenly calmed down.
“What do you mean by sorry? I really think so.”
“Hehe… If only Masson had been a little stronger…”
“Why am I tripping and falling! Taeyul, please deny it!”
As they were talking about another topic, Jinryeo was unfolding a scroll with a list of trials distributed to Yonghwa.
“Why are you doing that?”
“I’ve been curious about this for a while. I still understand the other trials, but this trial with the highest score is a bit hard to understand.”
At that moment, Ma Song and the other subordinates who were arguing over a trivial issue all looked at Jinryeo.
“You don’t know the truth?”
“You don’t know what that is?”
Jinryeo scratched his cheek in confusion.
“Wilderness spirit? “What is this?”
At the top of the list was the ordeal of recovering the wilderness spirit.
Taeyul explained it instead.
“It is an object that controls demons. “It goes down as a Dan Khan legend.”
“Then we can just bring this!”
Those gathered here laughed at her words.
“Jinryeo is so kind, I like it.”
“The child is so pure, isn’t he?”
Taeyul said this to Jinryeo, who had a strange expression on her face.
“No one knows where the wilderness spirit is.”

Seolhong had the worst day on earth.
After cutting Jegak’s head, she locked herself in her room and did not come out until a few days later.
Everyone was worried about her.
“I want to die…”
Chiu slammed his head on the table several times.
【Can I help you?】
Bitan asked, worried.
Chiu ignored the grief.
“… What do we do?”
Kang Seol remained silent in response to Chiu’s questions.
“What should I do? “Keuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
of of.) of.
“what’s the matter?”
“I wanted to make the best banquet, but it ended up being the worst. “Why am I so unhelpful?”
ah, who couldn’t see Chi-woo blaming himself, approached him.
“I guess it won’t work, Mr. Chiu.”
“It’s time for a special measures meeting!”
“Special measures meeting?”
“yes! We are preparing measures to cheer up Seolhong! “Everyone gather together!”
While Seolhong endured the pain by locking himself in a corner of the room, everyone else sat together in front of a small table.
Hwaa, Cheonga, Hwia.
and Seolhong’s maid, Cheonju.
Gourmet Chiwoo and Yongseok Snowfall.
And even heartbreak.
“You’ll just have to eat something delicious!”
“agree! That’s right!”
Bitan and Chiu exchanged.
This was the first opinion that came out, so everyone was shocked.
Hwa-ah shook her head.
“Please, I would like you two to take the initiative and participate as little as possible.”
Cheongah expressed a different opinion.
“How about holding a banquet here this time? A really normal banquet.”
“It’s not bad, but the dragon war starts soon, so we don’t have enough time. “There is no one who can participate.”
For some reason, Chiu expressed a normal opinion.
“And if you ruin this banquet… there will be no next time.”
“He is like that too. “What do you think, Heavenly Lord?”
“This is the first time Seolhong has experienced something like this… No matter what happens, you never miss a meal…”
Cheonju was almost in the same state as Chiu. It didn’t help much.
“What about Hwa-ah?”
“What passes by without incident? “If we don’t do anything special, it might not be of much help.”
“Well… if you don’t disinfect the wound, you will regret it forever…”
“Sounds ominous like that… What do you think, Hwiya?”
Hwia said, scratching the bridge of her nose.
“Hwia, whenever something difficult happens, she always goes out.”
“outing? “In this situation?”
“yes! “Get some fresh air and see other people.”
“That’s right, people who work hard, people who have fun, and even people who have more difficult work than me. Everyone gives me strength. Do you feel like you are not alone in the world?”
“Ugh… I hate it. Dismissed.”
“What are you, Chiu? I’m dismissing you!”
Hwa-ah organized the situation.
“In the end, nothing has been decided. Everyone may be upset, but please consider Seolhong’s well-being and act as usual. “If I think of a good way…”
That was then.
Seolhong’s visit was held.
Everyone dispersed with a loud crashing sound.
“…Why is everyone like that?”
“I have to clean the ceramics… the ceramics…”
“The bathroom looks so slippery! “I’ll go…”
Hwa-ah and Cheong-ah suddenly engage in strange behavior, such as polishing perfectly fine ceramics or going into the bathroom to clean.
– Hahahahahahaha He said let’s do it as usual…
– He was pretending to be calm until now haha
– Anyone can see that it’s very suspicious haha
– Even if Mr. Kyung-gyu doesn’t show up, this is immediately confirmed as a hidden camera.
Seolhong looked at them for a moment as they acted suspiciously, wondering what was going on.
Cheonju came to the table carrying a teapot.
a ton of hot tea was pouring out.
chachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachachacha ever also! do not die!
– Yeonggwang… follow me…
– Hongcheon is alive!
– Inspiration… I’m running ahead…
– What’s the vibration?
– The video is cut off. Please fix it quickly.
“It looks difficult, heaven? “Get some rest.”
“I can’t… Shall we get some rest?”
“huh. “You’re even sweating.”
“All right. “Let’s get some rest.”
Seolhong came up to Kangseol and talked to her.
“I want to get some air.”
The heads of everyone gathered in the dorm turned to Seolhong.
“Going out… you mean?”
“Okay, let’s go out.”
Chiwoo stood up and said.
“You’re going out all of a sudden? “It’s been so long since the accident happened… It’s too much to go out at this time…”
Chiu feels a stinging gaze and looks away. Hwa-ah was glaring at him as if he were going to kill him.
“Is it too much of a burden? Then…”
“It’s so good. I’m next to you, right? After all, going out is the best, right?”
“Does Chiu like to go out too?”
Behind Seolhong, Hwiah pursed her lips.
“Get some fresh air and see other people. People who work hard, people who have fun, and even people who have hard work. Should I say that everyone helps me?”
“I didn’t know Chiu had that side.”
– Because that aspect wasn’t there until just now.
– Report this for copyright theft.
– Look at Hwia’s expression hahaha
– He won’t stop talking! What a curse! Hwiah is swearing something with her mouth!
“So where are you going?”
“I want to meet Yushin. “It’s been a long time since I’ve seen you.”
“Yes, Yushin… Wait, Yushin?”
“That… that… Yushin of Goblin Street?”
Kang Seol narrowed his eyes when he heard that it was a goblin street.
Dokkaebi Street was a slum in Hongyeon.
