Looking at Kotaro’s stiff appearance, Snowfall glanced at everyone with a blunt expression.
The transferees were taken aback by that cold gaze. And there was someone who was going through a more embarrassing situation than them.
On the other side of the snowfall, Kotaro was frozen with his hand on the sword sheath.
Kotaro believed that no one could stop him here in Songjo. Even the dispatched central army was swept away once, so there was no way there would be anyone left to oppose him, who was ranked among the strongest among the Song Dynasty’s predecessors.
‘Just now… someone was glaring at me.’
Although he got into a fight with a soldier and became violent, he had no intention of escalating the matter. Of course, since the water had already been spilled, I had to be prepared to show my skills to some extent.
So I put my hand to the scabbard. I never dreamed that the sword in its sheath wouldn’t even be drawn out.
It was all because of Snow Seol, who raised his hand on his sword and blocked his stance.
No, it was enough to shake off the movement itself and pull it out, but what made it impossible to move the body at all was the blurry presence behind the man.
As the being looked down on me as if I was insignificant, my body felt like it was being crushed.
‘How can this be…’
Someone from the group of transferees shouted, as if his feelings were not conveyed to others.
“Stop oppressing us! We have the right to do whatever we want! “No matter how much Khan is an empire, he can’t manipulate us as he pleases!”
A former person who speaks passionately as if he was a martyr.
Kang Seol answered him in a businesslike tone.
“I understand they gave you a choice for a certain period of time.”
“That’s one-sided! “Is there more to it than just following what you decide?”
If only these were peaceful times.
“We are currently in a state of tension as we do not know when airstrikes will begin again in Songjo. And Khan is willing to do anything to protect the citizens of Song Dynasty. “If everything has to be weighed on the scale of choice, what weighs the most is the lives of citizens, not your freedom.”
One of the transferees who was speaking in response to the fairly fluent answer stuttered. Instead, another transferee did evil.
“Does this mean that citizens’ lives are the top priority and we are not even concerned about them?”
“It’s a bit exaggerated, but wouldn’t it be similar? It’s not like I’m asking much of you. All we ask is that those who can protect the city will stay, and those who cannot protect the city should leave the city even now.”
“This b*stard… he only wants to kick us out!”
Kang Seol was also a former governor and a close associate of Seol Hong, the city commander. At first glance, I could understand the position of the transferees, but in this case, I could not support them.
“When danger is just around the corner, an unclear ally is actually a potential threat within. Moreover, in the previous air raid, a group of renegade looters emerged, so it is not a leap forward.”
“We have nothing to do with them!”
“Even so, as the person who has to defend the city, I cannot just rely on that promise and leave you alone. “There is opposition from citizens, but we want to avoid a situation where holes are created in the city’s boundary network.”
When Kang Seol tried to calmly persuade them, those who incited their anger appeared.
“Leave us alone! “I don’t want to leave the city and I don’t want to submit to your control?”
“Don’t they usually call that kind of thing an outlaw?”
And the anger crossed a line.
The eyes of the transferees slowly began to become bloodshot.
“What the f*ck… I said let’s see! Hey! “We are outlaws?”
“Outlaw? “Does the b*stard who clings to Yonghwa and fawns over him even know that our lives are constantly crossing the line?”
“That’s right! “We have to fight tirelessly every time!”
Kang Seol barely suppressed the laughter that was about to escape.
‘What is it… why are they acting like this?’
Their actions seem somewhat contradictory.
Kang Seol felt that they did not seem like Jeonja in some way.
Transferees are usually selfish.
Their primary value was survival, not freedom.
Funnily enough, it was a strange group whose selfishness in wanting to live alone led to cooperation.
The conditions imposed by the central army were not that unfair.
If you wanted to remain in the city, joining forces with the central army had a higher chance of survival, and if you didn’t want to do that, abandoning the city was much more beneficial to your survival.
But now they wanted to remain in the city, encouraging discord.
‘Isn’t it strange?’
Jamard also agreed with Kang Seol’s thoughts.
Kotaro, who was the only one who noticed the true nature of the snowfall even for a moment, tried to stop the group’s derailment.
“What’s wrong, Kotaro? Are you scared? That b*stard right now….”
“Anyway, let’s stop….”
“Stop it! “I don’t know anything about us, but it’s ridiculous to know anything about us…”
Kang Seol smiled and answered.
“I understand you better than anyone else.”
“stop! Don’t be rude to Yongseok! Yongseok, you guys….”
Despite Biran’s dissuasion, the confusion did not calm down.
No, that action actually stimulated them even more.
“Oh, don’t even confront Yongseok?”
“You crazy b*stards… should we just close our eyes and kill them all?”
“What do you understand… do you know us?”
A situation where harsh words are poured out.
‘It’s annoying, but…’
To be honest, I didn’t want to understand or hang out with the transferees. If it were Kang Seol in Jeon Ja’s position, he would definitely have acted as he thought.
However, he was no different from Seolhong’s right hand man who was dispatched here as a commander. Violent behavior had to be refrained from.
In the end, when the situation reached a state of extreme tension, Kang Seol had no choice but to decide to reveal his identity.
“Because I’m a transfer person too.”
“So I can understand you. “And I’m curious as to why this situation is unfolding like this.”
Everyone paused for a moment when they heard that it was snowfall.
“You… are a transference?”
“Jeonja became Yongseok?”
“Wait a minute… where… Mr….”
The transferees burst into laughter after confirming something.
“No, no, no.”
“Your name is nowhere to be found in Song Jo’s rankings. “You said you were strong?”
“You were a liar.”
“Everyone in the rankings are people we know. “You’re either lying to avoid the current situation, or you’re the type of person who can’t even keep up with us, let alone Kotaro.”
The eyes of the transferees continued to turn red.
– Snowfall I got it. These guys…
Kang Seol nodded.
‘I felt it too.’
For some reason, I felt that this was not a typical reaction of transferees. Kang Seol realized the situation and sighed.
And then the object that erased his presence stopped working.
[The sound rumor is turned off.]
[The base visit information is revealed.]
Messages will soon surface like a flood.
[Information is private.]
[Your score is 24156800 points.]
[Rumor spreads that a great adventurer exists in Songjo.] [
The crime rate of the entire city is greatly reduced.]
[Hidden adventures in the city are activated. ]
[The tension in the city is eased.]
[Citizens have some hope for tomorrow.]
When I reached 20 million adventure points, I thought I would get something, but there was no reward.
I thought that if I could reach 30 million points, I could at least get the first title.
“Uh… wait a minute, what’s in the rankings here…”
“That’s a lie, right?”
“24 million? “24 million?”
“This is my first time seeing numbers like this…”
“Is this really him?”
“What did you say your name was? “Is it snowing?”
“I think he’s Korean… Is there anyone who says he’s from there?”
They looked around, looked at Snowfall like a monster, and then retreated.
Although the adventure score was not everything about strength, it could at least serve as a useful indicator.
So, in general, those who had experienced the unprecedented evil committed by those with high scores were afraid that Kang Seol would suddenly change and attack them at any moment.
“Will you believe me now?”
“Uh… that’s right.”
“I don’t want to make a big problem.”
“We don’t really have any major complaints…”
The numbers were telling us what kind of person Kang Seol was, so everyone started to be careful about what they said when they realized that one mistake in their words could send everyone running away.
However, there were also people who did not welcome this atmosphere.
“What’s wrong… Hey, you….”
“Just because you’re a transfer, does that mean we have to change our attitude? why? “Why should we do that?”
At that point, the transferees also thought the man who had just come out was strange.
“Hey… look at the score, what’s wrong with you…”
“… didn’t you see the score? Why the stimulation….”
At that moment, I tapped the tip of Snow’s nose! The smell of hitting.
– Yes, it’s him.
As soon as Jamard answered, something unbelievable happened.
The head of the man who had just stepped forward was cut cleanly by the sword swung by Snowfall, and he fell to the floor.
there was silence for a moment due to shock, and then it burned like fire.
“You crazy b*stard!”
“I knew it would be like this!”
“You’re planning to kill everyone who doesn’t comply! Kotaro! “We can’t do it. Neither of us…”
The transferees draw out their weapons to fight against the snowfall.
“Everyone calm down.”
“You look real now! That b*stard is now…”
“okay! “I just got decapitated… huh?”
The body with the severed head writhed.
When a person’s head is cut off, he or she dies immediately.
However, the corpse was squirming, which means that the dead person was not human.
“What the heck is this…”
Snowfall walked up to the separated head and lifted up the monstrosity.
the human face was melting.
“Oh my god…”
At the same time, up to four people were scattered in all directions. They all came out from the transferors side.
Snowfall clapped her hands.
Coco bit the neck of the former who was running away in an instant.
Not to be outdone, Kangseol launched himself at the other transferee.
A snowfall that causes one’s head to hit the ground and completely shatters it.
Coco instantly bit the two people’s necks and took their lives.
And the last survivor who tried to climb over the barracks wall was eventually caught by Kang Seol.
The captured man suddenly laughed maniacally.
Kang Seol said dryly.
“I heard it smelled… You guys are ghosts, right?”
“I got caught! I got caught! Hehehe!”
Kang Seol dragged the ghost and returned to his seat.
The face of the person who had been decapitated earlier had changed into that of a ghost with its tongue sticking out.
Kotaro and other transferees were embarrassed with dizzy expressions.
“How can this be… These guys… were ghosts?”
“Then until now…”
Kang Seol checked the eyes of the transferees.
The red eyes had returned to their original state.
“Oh my god….”
Biran approached and covered his mouth in despair. Then he looked at the other transferees with suspicious eyes.
The same was true for transferees.
Everyone looked at each other and was suspicious.
“Oh no! Please trust me!”
“I did not know! I have no idea! “I have nothing to do with this!”
While they were proving their innocence, Kang Seol arrested the ghost and summoned Jamad.
Perhaps because he rose to immortality level, his appearance when summoned also changed quite a bit.
Before, it felt like just a bunch of shadows coming out, but now it felt like black fog was slowly taking shape.
Of course, that scene was quite scary.
“It’s a ghost!”
“It appears again!”
– I’m Jamaden?
– ghost! They say it’s a ghost! where! Where are you! Uh… me?
Everyone was witnessing before their eyes the almost magical ability of seeing snowfall one after another.
In particular, Biran felt fear and respect at the same time as he looked at the snowfall.
As things started to fall into place, I didn’t know what was going on, but I realized that he was no ordinary person.
I thought he was a strange person because he seemed to have some composure even in imminent situations, but now I see that he was just overflowing with composure.
Jamard said while looking at the restrained ghost.
– Look at me ghost.
Jamard clapped his hands.
[Jammard uses the Dark Life Spell: Killer.]
[For a certain period of time, the target cannot harm his or her own life force.]
A spell used in preparation for taking one’s own life.
Kang Seol asked Jamard about this ability he had never seen before.
“What is that? Dark life witchcraft?”
– It’s the power of the scripture that the guy said he got last time.
The scripture that Jamad mentioned once.
– This is an ancient scripture I found on the bookshelf of that immortal guy you mentioned.
It can be seen as a part of the immortal books that remained in nothingness.
Unlike Jamad, Mael used all kinds of miscellaneous arts, and it seems that the scriptures of immortality also included these miscellaneous arts.
‘No matter what, it’s a dark life spell…’
Kang Seol turned around and looked at the transferees.
They were still blaming and doubting each other.
“You’re a ghost too!”
“Ooh, don’t be funny!”
Kotaro and Snowfall’s gaze crossed.
“Now you have to make it clear.”
“… All right.”
Kotaro walked with long strides and arrived in front of the ghost.
“Hey, since when did it start?”
“Heeheehee! “The one who was fooled is a fool!”
“I can’t believe I was fooled by this guy…”
“Hehehe! No, you were scared. I’m just exaggerating it! You’re so scared…”
Kotaro’s dagger pierced the ghost’s thigh.
“Shut your mouth.”
When Kotaro turned around, the transferees all thought for a moment and nodded.
“Is it okay to just follow the controls?”
Biran’s face brightened noticeably at those words.
Kang Seol nodded and then asked the ghost a question.
“Where are you from?”
“Did you plan the monster’s attack?”
“What if I did?”
Kangseol frowned and said to Jamad.
“Is that life magic or something….”
[Jammard uses the Life of Darkness spell: Blood Bedbugs.]
[The target feels unbearable itchiness for a short time.]
[If used repeatedly, they become immune to Bedbugs.]
The ghost, who had been drooling, finally confessed.
“The Yasha has broken the boundaries, so the ghost king will fall.”
“… Yasha? Yacha?”
“Our world has arrived.”
A ghost who speaks riddles.
Kang Seol asked a few more questions, but when he saw the ghost keeping his mouth shut, he ordered the soldiers to take the ghost away.
And then I stood there blankly, repeating the words the ghost left behind.
Newly appeared names Yasha and Demon King.
Among them, Kang Seol was particularly drawn to the name Yasha.
“Yaksha has broken the boundary… Yacha Yacha….”
No, you’re probably right.
If a ghost uttered that name.
Kang Seol sensed that he was caught up in something bigger than this Song Dynasty air attack.
If the yaksha, the horse sword spirit that escaped his control a long time ago, and the yaksha involved in this matter are the same person… things will definitely escalate.
