This was the answer given by the Duo Eoksini while listening to what Xia Mun said in a gathering.
“Ha… Mr. Cha, is there any other way?”
“All other methods take time.”
“hour? how much?”
“I think the shortest time would be about half a year.”
“… How did we end up having to lend a helping hand to that old monster?”
Jinryeo asked Duo Eoksini with her eyes shining brightly.
“Do you have a relationship with the teacher of Shinyo?”
“huh? “Who is that old man teaching?”
After hearing Jinryeo’s explanation, Duo Eoksini looked amused.
“What is your relationship with him?”
“It’s just a common relationship that exists everywhere. Hmm… Come to think of it, it’s been quite a while since I’ve seen you.”
Kangseol asked Duooksini.
“Is it possible to enter the lesser world from the ghost world?”
“of course. No, it would actually be easier than moving on from the present world. “Because it’s closer.”
Duoksini seemed dissatisfied with something.
“Why are you doing that?”
“It’s easy to enter, but you can’t take ghosts to the Little Heaven World.”
Ghost spirit was also a valuable power for Duoukshini.
She said she couldn’t take them to Little Heaven World.
“The residents there hate ghosts. “If you use your demonic energy, large monsters called phantom beasts will flock from all directions.”
Kang Seol recalled an incident that happened a long time ago.
I remember the time when a huge whale appeared and drove the group to their deaths.
‘It certainly seemed like he appeared because of his ears.’
If he had been a little weak, if he had delayed a little, he would have been burned to death by the beam of light that Moby Dick shot out there.
Socheon World remains such a strong memory.
“Why do they hate ghosts?”
“We hated each other even before Hwageumu appeared. “Because they only brought harm to each other.”
“It’s a long relationship.”
“Then, when the ghosts took Hwageumu’s side, they became completely angry. “There were a lot of times when I got angry.”
“Are all the fantastic beasts in the Little Heaven World special beings like dragons?”
“Not necessarily. “That old man is special.”
Duooxini sighed once and continued explaining.
“Dragons don’t originally live in the Little Heaven World. So, that old man and Hwageumu who coveted the present world are of a unique race.”
Although I knew it to some extent, it felt strange hearing it from the ghost king’s mouth.
“Why does that dragon remain in Socheon…”
“Hehehe… Are you curious about that? Well… some say it’s because of lingering regret, others say it’s out of mercy… but honestly, I don’t know. Yes, maybe it was to see the last of Hwageumu….”
“This is a bit of a sentimental inference. Anyway, it might be fortunate that the island or something ended up in the hands of that old man.”
The words of someone who had been sighing and sighing until just now did not fit the situation. So I was curious about the reason.
“If we have to go to the Little Heaven World, that old man still has common sense. They won’t threaten us or have any intention of taking our lives until they at least hear what we have to say. The problem is….”
Duo Eoksini’s eyes foreshadowed an ominous look.
“It’s the other guys.”
If there were numerous beings like Moby Dick at that time, the situation would be difficult.
“The ghosts are leaving behind. Once again, this contact is dangerous. If something dangerous happens, each person will have to figure out how to survive on their own. So…”
Duo-Eoksini glanced at the facial expressions of the group.
Except for Jinryeo, no one seemed particularly scared.
* * *
Kang Seol and his party returned to the Palace of Happiness with Duokshini. In particular, Xiamen was also included in this schedule.
“Is there any need to follow Mr. Cha, even Mr. Cha?”
“I need to be by your side.”
“Ugh… It would be nice if I could move the ghosts at times like this. Anyway, let’s go then.”
Snowfall and her group head to the basement of the Palace of Happiness.
“Where are you going?”
Duouksini said indifferently.
“You said the yaksha swallowed the boundary stone, right?”
“There is one more boundary stone managed by the Palace of Pleasure. “I plan to use that to go to Socheon World.”
“Isn’t the yaksha targeting this boundary stone?”
“If you open the door to Socheon carelessly, you will all die. No matter how strong a yaksha is, it won’t be able to withstand the onslaught of those monsters. And even if there is a hole, it will be filled quickly if the monsters use their power.”
Wearing Geek …
Kuwoo Woo Woong …
The door in the underground of the pleasures was opened.
“That… boundary stone…”
A large sculpture emitting various lights was making its presence felt.
“Mr. Cha, is this really the only way?”
That was the answer.
Duoksini activated the warning stone.
12The ghosts followed and added strength.
A suspicious energy surrounded the group.
Snow and his party disappear somewhere along with a pillar of light.
[The unexpected adventure ‘Small World’ occurs.]
[This adventure is very dangerous.]
Adventure 33-(Special) ‘Small World’
You We are looking for a way to defeat Yasha, the culprit who is disrupting the noble world and the real world.
Now, the situation has become much better with the addition of Xiamen, a descendant of Orgo, who is a great helper.
With his help, you have succeeded in finding out the methods and tools to deal with the yakshas in the Library of Mansang.
But there are still a few more steps left. Here in Socheon World, you must meet the legendary dragon and get Orgo’s sword back.
Goal: Acquire the island.
CAUTION This adventure is very dangerous.
Please note that situations in this adventure change from moment to moment.
Current remaining time 「Unknown」
“Everyone, hide your ears.”
Since this is not a ghost world, Seolhong, Chiwoo, and Jinryeo have also returned to their original form.
“I can’t help you here, so if something happens, just survive on your own.”
Duo-o-shi-ni, which wraps a mat around the ears.
Now he just looked like a pretty child.
The snowfall suppressed the ghost as much as possible.
Since I didn’t have much ears to begin with, it wasn’t much of an inconvenience.
“Luckily it landed nearby. All you have to do is climb this mountain.”
Everyone looked up at the mountain in front of them as they heard Duo Eoksini’s words. Are there any other mountains like this in the world?
It didn’t feel particularly rugged, but it was high.
The dragon I was looking for seemed to live very high up.
They have no choice but to climb the mountain.
As they climbed the mountain until a sweet smell came out of their mouths, they broke the silence and started talking.
“… Is it true that you live here?”
“Yeah, last time I saw you, you lived here.”
“When was the last time?”
In response to Chiu’s question, Duo Eoksini tilted his head.
“… I guess this was before Hwageumu came?”
“It was more than 300 years ago!”
“No one living here will live for 300 years.”
For now, I had to trust Duo-o-sini and move on.
ther the higher the altitude the more out of breath it became, but on the other hand the view became more spectacular.
“Anyway, it’s a really overwhelming scenery….”
“Socheon will be like the paradise you humans dream of.”
Duoksini said, pointing out the requirements with his fingers.
“After a day, fruit grows and the stream does not dry up. In addition, the weather is warm enough to be warm even at night, and the seasonal changes are clear and not excessive. Moreover, the residents here are not interested in conflict, so there are no cases of fighting.”
“Of course humans can’t mix here.”
“That’s because there are indigenous people living here.”
Duoksini said while looking into the distance.
“Bow your heads, everyone.”
Everyone bowed their heads without saying a word.
After a while.
A huge monster bird appeared with a loud flapping sound.
The strange bird, which had been flying around for a while while making strange noises, left the mountain when there was no problem.
‘It must be dozens of times bigger than Koopa.’
Even though Koopa was as big as he was, he was no match for the monsters here.
The size of the monster was so large that it was rather unrealistic. It felt like I was in a place where the oxygen concentration was different.
“Didn’t you see it?”
“If you saw it, you probably weren’t hungry.”
Following Duoksini’s words, I climbed the mountain again.
The group climbed the mountain for two days. Although they rested regularly, the height of the mountain was so high that they were exhausted, as they did not have ordinary physical strength.
“Huh… Don’t you live too high up?”
“Do you guys understand? The old man has this hobby. And….”
“Lie down flat on the floor.”
Everyone stuck to the floor in perfect order.
Since they were not wearing flashy clothes, they immediately assimilated into the bush.
Woo Woo Woo Woo Woong …
Woo Woo Woong …
Seolhong and Chiwoo snowfall saw a rich monster in the air and covered his mouth.
‘It’s Moby Dick.’
‘It’s that guy from back then.’
The white whale disappeared into the distance, making a sound that sounded like it was coming from the deep sea. Moby Dick soon jumped over the clouds and disappeared.
“It’s Moby Dick. What a monster…”
“I saw you last time. “Is he dangerous?”
“Yeah, he’s a tight guy. Be careful so you don’t get noticed by him. “He’s a guy who arrogantly claims to be the orderly of Socheon, but unfortunately, his skills are outstanding.”
I’m sorry to hear this, but Kang Seol had already caught Baek Kyung’s eye once.
‘I wonder if I’ll remember…’
I climbed the mountain again.
The closer I got to the summit, the more tired I became.
In particular, Duoksini was having a very difficult time, contrary to her carefree appearance at first.
At first glance, I couldn’t understand why she, a demon queen, was having such a hard time.
“Why are you having such a hard time?”
“So, why does your body feel so heavy?…”
“You were fine on the way there.”
“So, it’s strange… Oh, I get it.”
Duo-Eok-Sini stopped right on the spot.
When she stopped, everyone couldn’t help but look at her. And I also found out why she was having such a hard time.
Someone was standing on her head.
“Can someone please remove this b*stard from my head?”
“Puh-huh… Did you finally notice it? “It’s been up for quite some time.”
“Damn old man! “It must have been a prank!”
It was not common to see an old man with a long beard and eyebrows standing on a child’s head.
Moreover, since they were almost twice as big, even if the neck had been broken, it should have been broken a long time ago.
‘I didn’t notice it at all…’
They said he wasn’t activating Asura because Karuna wasn’t there, but even so, he didn’t notice the old man’s presence at all.
The old man had a blurry expression, not sure if his eyes were open or not. Duoksini acted as if there were feathers on top of his head instead of an old man’s.
“Hehehe… Don’t worry about it, just go up. “We’re almost there.”
“I came to see my old friend. Why should I go up here?”
“Yes? me? It doesn’t matter. “I’m going to go to the market, so let’s go up and talk.”
“… damn it.”
“haha! Even if everyone came. Haven’t you been there once?”
It was just as the old man said.
Soon a shabby house appeared with an open view.
It was a truly shabby house with a landscape that could be described as something out of a painting.
“Are you still living in a house like this?”
“… Is it rude to do my best after coming here after such a long time?”
“I already knew you would come.”
Everyone except Duo Uksini flinched.
The old man may have been aware of their presence since he climbed the mountain.
Duoksini explained this in detail.
“Because older people don’t intervene in the present, but see the future more clearly.”
“A guy who knows that is interfering with the real world….”
“There’s nothing the Yasha can do. “They are running wild in my territory.”
“Hehehe… That mask is crazy about its power.”
The old man said it was a mask, not a sword.
Yaksa usually tied the sword and mask together, but the old man may have judged differently.
‘… Is the mask the real thing?’
As Kang Seol continued his thoughts through the fragments of the conversation, the conversation between Duoksini and the old man continued.
“Yeah, that guy. “How can you not?”
“Why should I sweep the snow piled up in someone else’s yard?”
“Hah… that’s right, he’s an old man who doesn’t even care about the snow piling up in his yard to begin with.”
Just by looking at its appearance, you couldn’t tell it was a dragon at all. I didn’t feel anything.
Colorless and odorless.
It seemed like a word made just for him.
“Okay… I’m sure you didn’t come to ask me to intervene… I guess your purpose is two-fold.”
“Giving me the sword to strike him down….”
He pointed to the snowfall.
“Awakening the wandering demonic spirit.”
The old man guessed exactly why Kang Seol and his party came to Socheon World.
“Is it possible?”
“It’s possible. “Who do you think I am?”
This person who looks like an ordinary old man is a dragon.
A being like Hwageumu, who dyed the East with blood in the past.
However, it did not seem to have a bad taste like Hwageumu, killing humans at will. Although I’m not sure which of the two is normal for a dragon.
‘I’m glad the conversation worked out.’
Around the time Kang Seol thought that.
“But I don’t have the sword right now.”
“… Are you kidding me!? “Did you throw it away?”
“Listen to the end. I don’t have any material desires, but I’m not so heartless as to throw away something I’ve loved for so long. “I put it within reach.”
“I lent it to you.” “Hold on to someone.”
Why does the word lent sound so scary?
Perhaps everyone in the group was thinking the same thing.
“… no way?”
“Umm… it’s two o’clock.”
“You go into hiding now.”
“What the… damn old man!”
Duoksini quickly ran into the house.
“Heh heh… you’re still so mean.”
Even the ghost king who ruled the ghost world seemed to feel like a granddaughter to the dragon.
The group couldn’t move their bodies.
There was a shadow on the top of the mountain.
That time when everyone looks up into space.
“Oh my god…”
The thing that cast a shadow over them was the huge whale Moby Dick.
Moby Dick shrinks his body.
As she lightly stepped onto the ground, her appearance had transformed into that of a woman.
The woman had fierce eyes, but she was very beautiful as she decorated her body with colorful decorations.
“Labor and management.”
“The Lord has come.”
“… I told you not to call me that. “Who are they?”
“They are Yoa’s acquaintances.”
“They were these people. Somehow…”
Moby Dick covers his nose.
“It smelled bad…”
“Hehehe… Is there even a need to say that out loud?”
“I’m sorry, but I really can’t stand it so I have to…”
The woman rolled her eyes.
“Yeah… I think it smells like a ghost.”
As the group showed stiff movements at those words, Baekkyung seemed to be even more suspicious of the group.
Moby Dick spinning around the group.
It’s a big deal.
It seemed like things had gone terribly wrong.
“Things are messed up…”
What Xiamen muttered was the correct answer.
Yeah, things went wrong.
Perhaps what Xiamen saw was the same as what Jiang Xue saw now.
The sword hanging from Moby Dick’s waist.
It was clearly a departure.
The path was in her hands, not the dragon’s.
