Snowfall’s heart was beating loudly as if it was broken. It feels like my heart is about to burst out of my chest.
“Are you okay?”
The sound got louder and quieter repeatedly.
– … Snowfall Open the door.
My head rang so loudly that I couldn’t tell exactly whose voice it was.
My physical condition was not normal.
Snowfall takes a deep breath.
“what’s the matter? It couldn’t have been because of the sparring we just had…”
“No, that’s not it…”
The sound suddenly quieted down.
I didn’t know what happened, but I spent an hour anyway.
“Are you okay?”
Kangseol nodded slightly and placed her hand on her chest.
‘What on earth…’
Shake it off…
Snowfall suffered a huge shock to her chest and collapsed.
“My energy and blood are distorted! “Lay it down here!”
The sounds of the surroundings moving away.
Snowfall’s consciousness sank below.
* * *
The deeper you sink, the stronger the pressure becomes.
Snowfall’s consciousness, which had been falling asleep, was met with intense pressure.
Kangseol was barely able to support his body as he fell to the ground when he heard someone calling out to him.
“who is this?”
“Who do you think it is?”
Now he could immediately recognize whose voice was calling him.
“But I guess I haven’t completely forgotten.”
A spirit wearing glasses appeared in front of Kang Seol.
“I found the clue to nothingness.”
“Is that true?”
“okay. And… the nothingness has already been completed.”
Ur and the other summoned beasts were unable to join Kangseol because the void had not yet been completed.
“Besides this, I also found out why it took so long.”
Ur said calmly, pushing up his glasses.
“The normal way to open the door to nothingness is not to open it from within.”
“You must have noticed, right? In other words, the door to nothingness is not for me to open, but for you to open it.”
What was needed to open this place, which was extremely efficient for a simple familiar training space, was the power of Snowfall, not Ur.
“Nothing like what happened during Karuna will happen. When I made the connection in a really ignorant way, it was as if heavenly luck had followed me. “It won’t happen again.”
“But opening the door from this side… I…”
Because I’m not immortal.
Because he is not that strong and wise.
A thought suddenly occurred to me.
‘No… that’s not what I was trying to say…’
“Open the door, Snowfall. “I’ll be waiting.”
* * *
While she was unconscious, Snow Seol was taken to bed and laid down as close to the fire as possible.
Several needles were seen sticking into several body parts where the skin was exposed.
“So, my body keeps getting cold…”
Kang Seol raised his upper body with Chiu’s support.
“Are you conscious? “You suddenly lost your mind.”
Hyemyeong laughed when she thought Kang Seol seemed to have come to her senses.
“ha ha ha! Well, it’s impossible not to be shocked by sparring. “I pretended to be calm on the outside, but that’s hurting my body, so from now on, if anything goes wrong, please tell me.”
Kang Seol didn’t even have the energy to respond to Hyemyeong’s reaction.
This is how the night passed with so much commotion.
And since there were still nearly two days left until we entered the ruins of Wattala the next day, everyone was relaxed.
Except for one snowfall.
Kangseol frowned and her face turned red. He looked like someone in urgent need of going to the bathroom.
Tak! Tension released.
– Open the door Snowfall. I’ll be waiting.
Ur’s words still ring in my ears.
Ur said he would definitely wait.
It probably means that there is nothing more you can do to help.
‘So how do you open it?’
Even if I were to open the door, there was no way to know where the door was, how to open it, or whether the door even existed in the first place.
– Is it true that this person fainted once and developed a habit of pooping his pants after waking up?
– I’m not tired of it yet, but I think I’m working on it.
– I hope you succeed. Oh, looking at your expression, I think it leaked a little!
– Wishing you a safe delivery!
Unaware of his speed, viewers dismissed Kang Seol’s efforts as eccentricity.
– yes. master.
“You said you went through the door when you came here, right?”
– Yes there was definitely a door.
There will be no advisor as good as an experienced person.
Kang Seol asked Karuna what happened when she came over from nothingness to here.
“What exactly did the door look like?”
– The door was a bit cramped. The door was so old that I was worried that it might break just by pushing it open.
– I don’t know if the explanation is appropriate, but what should I say… I think I should say that the door I came through was not a door originally made for entrance and exit, but rather a door left just in case.
In short, the gate that Karuna crossed was a special route, not a regular route. In other words, should we say that it is a hidden route that often appears in games?
‘How on earth did Karuna get through that door?’
If even Ur had been described as heavenly luck, it would have been an absurd probability and it would have been a path of asceticism.
Karuna forced himself to overcome the odds and reach this place.
If I had failed, I would probably still be wandering in vain.
Once again, I thought it was great loyalty and will.
– The door… there must have been more.
Karuna adds one sentence.
Kang Seol became interested in those words.
“Why do you think that?”
– I felt it when I was wandering in nothingness. A huge presence somewhere. It’s just that I couldn’t find the exact location.
There is definitely a door.
But can it be opened?
‘I thought it would be easy because things were so easy to solve when I was immortal…’
The construction of nihilism that I personally experienced was usually not complicated.
What Kangseol tried to say to Ur in the lapse of consciousness.
‘I am not immortal.’
He was not immortal.
He was not as strong or wise as the immortal who built the nothingness that Jiang Seol was struggling with.
‘Well, that doesn’t mean there isn’t an answer.’
There must be a way.
“Turn off ….”
The snowfall again focused on the mind. Since a door does not refer to a physical space, I believe the answer lies in the mind.
– I started gaining strength again!
– Here we go again!
– Ikujo! Good luck!
* * *
Even though I kept immersing myself throughout the morning and afternoon, there was no significant result.
Actually, it wasn’t something to be so discouraged.
If we take the steps step by step as we have done so far, it will someday be possible to open the void and find the door that Ur mentioned.
‘no. If we open it so late, problems may arise.’
Kang Seol knew what trials Hyemyeong would face in the future.
And I also knew that my current self was not of much help in that ordeal.
‘Unless we recover at least some of our strength, we cannot be of any help to him and the same past will repeat itself.’
In the past, Hyemyeong used the wilderness spirit to overcome crises. Since Kangseol came to retrieve the wilderness spirit, he had to avoid using the wilderness spirit.
However, being unable to help Hye-myeong now ultimately leads to the conclusion that Hye-myeong has no choice but to use the Spirit of the Wild again.
The power he possessed was strong, but the opponent he faced in this ordeal was one on whom that power did not work properly.
So, I feel impatient.
If things continue like this, we will just repeat the past. Because you won’t be able to retrieve the wilderness spirit.
‘But there’s still time left, so I’ll keep trying.’
The threat to Hye-myeong will come even later than now. It seems that the power of the Golden God Statue has not yet been awakened at all, so it was due to timing.
At least the threat will come only after you visit the ruins several times.
‘At least by then… I hope I can open the damn door.’
When Kang Seol was lost in thought, someone approached.
“ha ha ha! “Brother, what are you thinking?”
It was Hyemyeong.
However, the name was a bit suspicious.
“Since when did I become your brother?”
“Don’t you remember us last night?”
“… Because of that?”
“Then we helped each other grow so much, so what else would we be if we weren’t brothers?”
It wasn’t wrong.
Kang Seol was also able to shake off his vague fear of the words of the 10 people.
“This smell… alcohol?”
“You guessed right, I saved it, and we were treated to a meal, and it was given to me as a souvenir of becoming brothers.”
– I said it. This b*stard is not a monk. I’ve never shaved my head.
– Apostasy! We abolish the rules that block the path to truth!
Kang Seol did not enjoy drinking alcohol and did not gulping down what others gave him.
But can Hyemyeong be called someone else? Brother, no, it’s him.
After looking into it, there was nothing special added. What was in the calabash was just alcohol.
Snowfall quenching its thirst with alcohol in a calabash.
Two men sat on a rock looking at the rising moon. The vast land of the plateau filled their hearts.
“As I said before, do you seem to be worried a lot?”
Kang Seol chuckled.
“I’m always worried.”
Hyemyeong responds with a chuckle.
“ha ha ha! “To be honest, you are the first man I’ve ever met who is equal to me.”
“Was I arrogant?”
Kang Seol hesitated to answer.
‘You shouldn’t influence Hyemyeong too much.’
There was no telling how things would progress if the meeting with Kang-seol himself would twist so many things for Hye-myeong.
What if Hyemyeong succeeds in ascending to heaven?
What if you fall over without being able to get over the wall?
“Anyway, I don’t know what you’re worried about when you have such great power at such a young age.”
Snowfall that instantly turns your mind white.
“If I were you, I wouldn’t have any worries. ha ha ha!”
It was a strange feeling to be praised as a strong person by the legendary horse Hyemyeong, who would challenge the ascension to become a god.
Hyemyeong revealed his past history.
The past days when Hyemyeong was practicing in a small hermitage.
Mia, who was abandoned even by the persecuted Youngan tribe, came to visit.
Mia lost her eyes before her coming of age ceremony.
Cases like this were rare, and the few cases that did occur usually resulted in disaster for the tribe. That is why it was abandoned.
“I had to protect it.”
Hunters targeting the Yeongan tribe were rampant, and their presence brought great harm to the hermitage.
Hyemyeong left the hermitage with Mia.
“Honestly, it was luck that got me this far. And this is where I got this new statue.”
The golden statue of Wattala was still showing its teeth.
“Don’t you blame them for abandoning Mia?”
“Not everyone can reach nirvana. “The path to enlightenment is a path walked alone, so even sharing hardships can be too much for some people.”
“Still, sometimes I feel like a monk.”
“ha ha ha! You don’t look like an archaeologist at all. “It’s normal for everyone.”
An unknown feeling welled up in Kang Seol’s heart. It wasn’t depression or boredom.
I just feel like I want to check something.
“Haha… Those words calling me somewhere sound familiar. “Other than Mia, there was rarely anyone who called me by my name.”
“How would you feel if someone decided most of your life?”
“… That’s an interesting question.”
Everything about Hyemyeong was decided by Kangseol.
How will Hyemyeong take it?
“Well, I don’t know what answer I will give, but I still want to meet you.”
“The person who decided my life.”
Hye-myeong doesn’t recognize that person even though he is right next to her. It was like a play. However, this answered many questions for Kang Seol.
The conversation with Hye-myeong gave Kang-seol a glimpse of the future, little by little, like a flashing firefly.
As I was leaving, I decided to go a little further.
“There is a door inside me.”
“That sounds bizarre.”
“I need to open it, but I don’t know how. “Do you know?”
Hyemyeong scratched her chin for a moment and said this.
“You can’t open the chest and take out the heart, so it must be about discipline.”
“Yes, Suyang. “The mental part.”
Hyemyeong’s views were not much different from Kang Seol’s.
“That’s my specialty too! “Should I ask Wattala?”
Hyemyeong takes out the golden statue and holds it.
“Why is that?”
“Don’t you know? “About these ruins.”
“Then you probably know about Wattala.”
“Rather than being a god, should we say that Watala is a transcendent spirit body? “He is an ancient being who has trained to the point of reaching the limit of his spirit.”
“I tend to know the details.”
“Haha, his traces are well preserved in the ruins. “It’s easy to understand because it’s in pictures.”
What resides in this statue is the mental body of Wattala.
Wattala doesn’t want anything else.
However, it helps the person with the new image to get rid of it. And I hope to spread that power to the world.
These statues, which are sometimes unearthed from ruins, are generally quite grotesque, but the golden statue is a rare statue with good intentions.
“Come on Wattala. Did you hear Snowfall’s concerns? To open the door…”
“It’s coming… huh?”
Something happened that no one expected.
The golden statue opened its mouth and was speaking.
It was my first time experiencing something like this, so I was momentarily dazed.
– Harm has arrived. Prepare, good one.
The gate of the ruins suddenly popped up.
Hyemyeong looked around.
“Why… why a day early…”
Snowfall looked up at the sky.
dark clouds were approaching.
Kang Seol’s hair stood on end.
‘It’s a guy! This can’t be right…’
The evil that I would encounter after entering and exiting the ruins several times was approaching at this moment.
‘Hye-myeong isn’t ready yet!’
Then there is only one answer.
The group was already awake due to the commotion, and they looked confused when the ruins door appeared.
When Kang-seol shouted, Chi-woo, who quickly assessed the situation, picked up Seol-hong and Mia and rushed into the ruins.
It was a really great response.
On the other hand, Hyemyeong stopped and turned her head back to look at Snowfall.
It feels like a shooting star is flying.
The meteor flew in an instant and collided with the snowfall.
[The bones of the beginning absorb the shock.]
[The bones of the beginning absorb
all the shock.] [The bones of the beginning absorb all the shock.]
Kang Seol, who flew backwards, and Hyemyeong, who supported him, were swept away by the shock and beyond the gate of the ruins. has disappeared.
of of of the ruins that swallowed up Kang Seol and Hye-myeong disappeared in an instant.
“Are you okay? “What on earth is that…”
After receiving such a huge blow, they stopped in a moment of bewilderment.
The golden statue opened its mouth once again.
– Harm has arrived. It must not be taken away from Wattala’s good will and its power.
Snowfall made eye contact with the golden statue.
The golden statue seemed to be speaking to Kang Seol.
– Take possession of Wattala’s legacy.
A message occurred to Kang Seol.
[The unexpected adventure ‘Watala’s Legacy’ occurs.]
[This adventure is very dangerous.]
