Episode 263: Kang
Seol looked at Hyemyeong with a lost expression for a moment.
‘Young Hye-myeong… Oh my God.’
I already knew that if I went into Mia’s painting, I would meet him, but seeing Hyemyeong in front of me actually made me feel a little embarrassed.
“It’s a warning, don’t come any closer than that.”
Hyemyeong’s pole radiated a soft golden light.
The golden light contained therein was weaker than Chiu’s light, but that would not be his full power.
Kang Seol came to his senses at Hyemyeong’s anger.
“Reveal your identity!”
Actually, now was the most difficult time.
Mia is very wary and Hyemyeong is protecting her.
Since you are suddenly approaching them, it is natural to be suspicious.
However, there was no way Kangseol and his party could not have expected this.
I spoke out the words I had prepared in advance.
“It’s a relic society.”
“… what? “Relic Society?”
“Yes, I was dispatched to Janita Plateau this time because of important ruins.”
Kang Seol had to remember what exactly Hyemyeong was doing at that time.
What things did you get and what adventures did you go on?
Judging from his behavior, it appears that he has not yet obtained the wilderness. It was as expected.
For a moment, Kang Seol wondered why his words were so short, but he concluded that he probably unconsciously thought of the person as someone he had known for a long time, not as someone he had just met for the first time.
‘It’s not wrong…’
Anyway, the important thing now is to get the other person to accept the existence of the group.
Hyemyeong studied for a moment.
He, who acted confidently, was intimidated by the mention of a relic society.
If Hyemyeong had met Kang Seol and his party somewhere other than here, there would have been no reason to be intimidated just because they were part of the Relic Society.
‘I guess I’ll have no choice but to hesitate now…’
That’s because if the Relic Association got involved, things would get complicated.
“Huh hmm… From the Relic Society to a place like this? “For some reason… it seemed like the attire wasn’t the attire here…”
Chi-woo with a blank expression and Seol-hong acting calmly after noticing the situation.
It would have been great if things had continued like this, but Chiu added an awkward act.
“That’s right. “We are a relic society.”
Chiwoo was really bad at lying.
Normally, that was a good thing, but unfortunately, in the current situation, it only aroused the other person’s suspicion.
Hyemyeong asked back, noticing something strange.
“If it’s the Relic Society… which of you is in charge?”
Chiu lacked knowledge about the existence of the Relic Society, and Seolhong’s level was not much different.
In other words, the person in the group who knew the most about the relic society was Kang Seol.
“Ho… it did look like that. name is?”
The names of Kang Seol and Chiu Seolhong were passed down.
“So, for what purpose did you guys come all the way here? “Oh, the Society of Relics doesn’t tell outsiders about its work?”
Kang Seol responded calmly.
“That can’t be right. We came here to find one thing. “I found out that what we were looking for was here.”
Mia, who was hiding behind Hyemyeong’s back, glanced at his luggage.
It seemed like he was uncomfortable with this situation as he kept squirming.
Kang Seol noticed something suspicious about her behavior.
‘Botjim… I guess it’s over there.’
Due to the structure of the ruins where the wilderness spirit rests, there were items that could be obtained first.
‘I guess I’ve already obtained the golden statue from the ruins.’
Ruins of Wattala.
It was around this time that Hyemyeong began to gain tremendous power.
He acquired a golden statue of a god that had been sleeping before the spirit of the wilderness, and gained enlightenment from the statue, causing his power to increase explosively.
“Well… what exactly are you looking for?”
Here, if I say that Kang Seol is a new figure, Hyemyeong’s expression will be worth seeing.
However, right now, he was not close enough to Hye-myeong to pull off such a prank, and he had to convince them that they were not enemies.
And more than anything, I was concerned about the warning Mia left before Kang Seol and her group entered the picture.
The first of Mia’s warnings.
– The world in the picture is literally a new world. We cannot expect what has already happened to happen again. Choices are divided into various paths and will lead to good or bad things.
– Does that mean… something different from the original past could happen there? Picture What are the problems that arise when we replace this wilderness spirit that has lost its power with the intact wilderness spirit there?
– Although the power of this wilderness spirit has disappeared, it certainly exists in reality. The future will not be greatly distorted because of this. However… if you want to obtain a complete wilderness spirit, you must replace what the wilderness spirit did in the past. Otherwise…
Mia said this.
– When you return, it may be very different from what you knew. If that happens… there won’t be another chance to make it right. This opportunity… I’ve squeezed out every last drop of strength I have left.
Mia’s drawings can change the past.
No, since I said this would be the last time I lost my power, it would be fair to say that I was able to change the past.
This was the reason why she had been targeted by some evil people.
But now, there are only a few people left on the continent who know of her abilities.
‘You only get this one chance, and you shouldn’t distort the future other than what was decided. ‘Because it’s too dangerous.’
The future will not be thrown into disarray just by recovering the wilderness spirit.
Until recently, the wilderness spirit had only shown one miracle and lost all its power at that time.
‘If we complete that miracle here, we will be able to bring the wilderness spirit to reality.’
Of course, there were things to be careful about.
It is said that Daedeok Hyemyeong, which was famous throughout the continent, exists just a stone’s throw away from Gwangyalyeong.
“What we’re looking for…”
“It’s a drop.”
Mia sighed softly at those words.
Perhaps this is a sigh of relief.
They may have judged that a dispute might arise over the already recovered golden statue.
Fortunately, the tension eased somewhat when Kang Seol and his party said that they were looking for something other than the golden statue.
Hyemyeong looked at Snowfall for a moment and scratched her head.
“What does that drop look like?”
Snowfall showed the appearance of the wilderness depicted on the scroll.
“Hmm… this… um….”
Hyemyeong thought for a moment and said this.
“This will work. “I think I know where what you’re looking for is.”
It will happen.
Because the Spirit of the Wild could only be obtained by opening the second gate of the Wattala Ruins.
Kangseol remembered that there was a clue given in the ruins element that a mysterious bell was sleeping at the second gate.
“I will help you guys. “In return, will you please do me one favor?”
After a while, Hye-myeong approaches Kang-seol after stopping by their temporary shelter.
The request wasn’t that big of a deal.
“Close your eyes for this.”
This is the first time both Chi-woo and Seol-hong have seen it.
But Snowfall knew what it was.
At first glance, it looked like a reclining Buddha, but it also looked like a statue modeled after the greedy god of voodoo.
Because he was showing his teeth and wearing a lot of jewelry.
Kang Seol already knew that Hyemyeong had found this in the ruins and was gradually releasing its power.
‘You’re making good progress.’
Kang Seol never had the heart to take this away from him.
This was his.
‘The golden statue… is quite coveted, but he already got it.’
It was not a future worthy of an inflection point.
Would robbing him of his identity and depriving him of the abilities he would otherwise gain would lead to a better situation than it is now?
‘No, I don’t touch anything else as much as possible. Let’s only aim for the wilderness area.’
Kang Seol nodded and said.
“If you help us with our work, I won’t report it to the top.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yeah, because I hate being bothered.”
“thanks! “I heard that the Relics Association is very strict when it comes to handling their affairs, but I don’t think that’s the case with you!”
– Because it is not a relic society!
“Oh, that’s a compliment. Did you say it was the spirit of wilderness?”
“Yes, wilderness spirit.”
“Unfortunately, it’s impossible to get it right now.”
I already knew about snowfall.
‘It seems the timing was a little off.’
Hyemyeong told me the reason.
“This ruins opens once every three days. “And at night.”
This is something I experienced once in the previous Demon Lord Alkatron.
Ruins that appear at night. The ruins of Wattala were even more difficult to enter, with a three-day entry limit.
“It takes two more days before the ruins are opened.”
Hyemyeong raised one eyebrow and looked away in sorrow as Kangseol obediently believed his words.
“But… I wasn’t in a hurry so I couldn’t ask you earlier, but what is that black creature? “Emergency food or something?”
Bitan frowned and answered.
【It’s black! Food! 】
“Grief? “What is grief… can you even talk for a moment?”
“Grief is my assistant.”
“aha! There was a guy who even said that if you go to the relic club, it’s full of strange creatures. Nice to meet you, my name is Hyemyeong. “I apologize for my harsh words earlier.”
When Hyemyeong held out her hand, Bitan placed her tail on top of it.
【I’ll forgive you just this once!】
Hyemyeong chuckled at the grief-stricken reaction and said this.
“I will take care of your meals. “Corn porridge is okay for dinner, right?”
Chiwoo perked up his ears at those words.
“Well, that’s great….”
“But the corn is in a bit of a state.”
“How is it?”
“Some of them are a bit rotten.”
“Why is it a little rotten? If it rots, give it to the ground as fertilizer! “If a few are rotten, there are still some that are fine. I can just give them to you, right?”
“Mia is growing up, so we need to feed her healthy food. I was taking care of the rot. I’m glad you guys were able to come and get rid of it before it rots further. Ha ha ha ha ha.”
– Ha ha ha ha ha?
– This b*stard?
– It’s killing me!
Kang Seol chuckled at those words.
‘Because I wasn’t eating it myself. The reason he did something like that…’
Hyemyeong’s body is like that of an iron man.
Even if you eat just a little bit of rotten corn, nothing will happen.
It may not have tasted good, but it wasn’t for Kang-seol to actually eat it, so the good ones were given to Mia and the bad ones were given to Hye-myeong.
When Kang Seol found the traces he left behind, he felt strange.
“I will take care of your meals during your stay.”
“uh? Isn’t that okay?”
“You should. “It’s better than rotten corn porridge.”
“… Is that right? But changing the cook doesn’t mean the corn will come back to life…”
Kang Seol took out a bunch of things from her belongings.
It was a full range of ingredients in a seasoning container.
Hyemyeong was very surprised to see that everything had retained its freshness.
“Is this all going to go in there? I get it! “It’s a relic from the Relic Society!”
At this time, there would be no interest or anything, so this would have been the first time I saw my belongings.
“Well, that’s kind of it.”
“ha ha ha! “I like you more and more!”
Kangseol prepared a meal that included not only vegetables but also meat.
Seolhong asked softly.
“From the looks of it, he is a person who devotes himself to Buddhism. I guess that’s not the case with meat… isn’t it?”
Seolhong was worried that Kangseol might have momentarily forgotten what kind of person Hyemyeong was.
But the person who knew Hyemyeong best was Kangseol.
“uh? doesn’t care! “I also eat meat.”
“…Isn’t there a precept?”
“I hit it. Now there is only one precept that I keep.”
– Save yourself.
What Kang Seol once said to one person.
Hyemyeong’s realization was also Kang Seol’s realization.
“This is the first precept I’ve heard…”
“Then it’s a precept I created.”
“It was pure nonsense.”
“Haha, even if it’s nonsense, how difficult is it to keep even that one thing?”

After finishing their meal, the group quickly fell asleep.

It may have seemed defenseless, but Chi-woo would probably protect Seol-hong if something threatening happened.
Mia and Hyemyeong were not in bed.
Snowfall got up from her seat and walked to a place a little away from her bed.
There, Mia was sitting on a rock and Hyemyeong was violently swinging a baton.
Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu any one sound of it was
powerful blow that shook the plateau.
“Whoa… whoa… you’re awake?”
Hyemyeong looked back at Kang Seol and smiled.
“How about mixing it up?”
A sparring match with Daedeok Hyemyeong, one of the legendary 10 sayings.
Of course, hard work will still be needed to become a true Hye-myeong, but even so, his traces will remain.
“If you don’t like it, don’t.”
Kang Seol grinned.
