Becoming stronger feels like climbing an uphill road. If you pursue a higher level of strength, you will face a higher uphill slope.
And when I finally got to a level of strength, it wasn’t an uphill climb.
It was flat.
You must walk on hard, even ground.
There is no promise and there is no feeling.
Since there are no guidelines, you won’t know if you’re going in the right direction, and you’ll inevitably get tired.
If you are lucky enough to walk down the path without giving up despite such suffering, you will encounter it.
Take the stairs.
“Here, you guy. “Come quickly!”
“Did you catch Karuna?”
“Where have you been?”
“I was hiding in the servant’s quarters and sleeping.”
“You’re skipping afternoon training and making everyone wait! Karen!”
… uh? Here…
the mouth moves arbitrarily.
“Rain group training… it’s too old.”
“This guy! Trying to become strong alone! “Cowardly!”
“… I don’t know what it means.”
“And that’s always possible! There are 10 guardians! “All 10 people should aim to become one.”
“Wow… that sucks.”
“… Enjoy the time together while you can.”
Lane’s expression of regret.
Karen somehow thought that expression was a bit sad. Why didn’t I know this feeling back then?
Karen whispered to Karuna.
“Let’s wait for Karuna Rain to weaken. “I think I just need to wait a little longer until I get older.”
“These guys! Where are you talking? That won’t work… I, Rain, will start today’s training by playing the villain.”
As soon as the word ‘playing a villain’ came out of Lane’s mouth, the other knights spoke in a fit of convulsions.
“Just stop playing the villain… please…”
“Karen! Hurry and kneel! No, put your head on the ground!”
Lane laughed, twiddling his beard with his fingers.
“Hehehe… Get your formation in order. “I will move in exactly 30 seconds.”
“Holy shit! “Everyone get ready!”
“Karen! “See you later!”
A strange practice found only among the Montra guardian group. It’s called playing villain.
When playing villains, the guardians are divided into two groups.
And the strongest one became a villain and dealt with other knights.
And always… there is a villain among the villains.
Because he was overwhelmingly strong, he always assumed the role of a villain.
30 seconds have already passed.
Raine shouted and pulled out his large sword.
“The knight is the sword of the empire! The Emperor’s Shield! I am a vicious villain who has come to destroy you! “It’s Black Sun Lane!”
The guardians clenched their teeth.
Anyone who saw Raine’s current behavior would think it was quite comical, but the guardians who had actually dealt with him thought that this appearance only heightened their fear.
“lane! Why am I a knight again! Make me a villain too! “I want to be a villain too!”
“Hehehe… Is this a defection? But it’s still too early for you! Karen you don’t deserve to be a great villain!”
“Because I’m weak! Villains must be strong! Tsk… You’re wasting time with words! Goes!”
Why does it sound like a cannonball is being fired when people are moving?
“Stand up straight! “You could get hurt!”
“You’re going to hurt me anyway!”
“Did you get caught?”
The first knight that collided with Rain went down with a loud noise.
“I need to control my strength a bit.”
In general, anyone who clashed with Lane at the beginning never ended up unscathed. That’s why everyone quietly retreats.
A sparring disguised as a real fight.
Battles of many against one often created dramatic situations when the ability to deal with many was extraordinary.
Montra’s sun breaks through the guardians without hesitation.
The power and movement that made the impossible possible was a great stimulus to the knights who dealt with the villains.
“Hurry and make me kneel! Guardians of Montra! “Is your justice limited to this?”
“The leader’s malice is too great!”
“noisy! I’m an old guy, so I tend to ignore my subordinates’ opinions! This too is one of malice!”
Karen faced Lane’s momentum like a tidal wave.
And I stared endlessly.
The Karen that exists here are the Karen of the distant future.
Karen went through harsh hardships and reawakened after the fall of Montra.
That’s why we can now observe Lane’s movements in more detail.
What I didn’t know then, what I didn’t realize then.
Lane was the knight’s guide.
How to move.
How to fake that movement.
How to get a faked move into the next move.
With incredible force, he hit all of those things directly into his eyes.
“What is that awkward posture! How can this absurdity be prevented?”
In most cases, it is such overwhelming force that it is fortunate to be able to respond with even a few moves. Karuna also left long ago.
“What atrocity this is! If this continues, Montra will be destroyed!”
“Rain is destroying it!”
“Villains only say what they say!”
“That’s the same as Lane….”
The hand holding the sword gained strength.
No matter how much strength I gave, it felt like it wasn’t enough.
The worry of whether I can deal with that monster with this sword is what keeps me wanting more power.
“Eurachaaa! “It’s refreshing!”
That kind of power.
Villain games where Lane plays the villain usually end like this.
A momentary movement.
The light flickering within it.
Sparring with him gave birth to a lot of abstract things.
Just like homework.
Forced me to think.
Forced to accept it.
Although the food is not to my taste yet, I put it in front of my eyes so that I can enjoy it someday.
An unprecedented monster created by Montra.
The strongest tree of mankind.
Perhaps the strongest knight since history began.
He is Montra’s Taeyang Lane.
After blowing away all the other knights, Karen’s turn came back.
Karen was last in line.
Karen was also the 10th Guardian, and because of her behavior, Raine always made her undergo intense training under the guise of special instruction.
You realize that someone can do so many things in a split second.
Lane’s eyes seemed to speak.
– Avoid Karen.
Karen also spoke with her eyes.
– … I hate
it “Guardian! …Fall before evil!”
A huge wall crashing down.
To become that huge wall yourself.
‘I have to see it… I have to see it…’
The world was pushed out and bounced around.
The ending was a line of praise from Lane.
“That’s it, Karen. … Good eyes.”
Karen once again fell into a world without a guardian.
The Rayne she relied on was gone, and only the bespectacled Urman was watching her.
“Um… I guess I’m about to break the wall.”
“If you’re disappointed, you can find another way. Even if you don’t go out now…”
“No, we’re almost there. “I don’t need time, what I need is…”
Karen’s eyes lit up and she looked beyond the darkness.
“… Then get ready.”
Karen is going out today.
It felt like I had spent quite a long time in nothingness.
Would it be a lie if I said I didn’t feel attached to this place?
Even so, it seemed like it would take time to find the answer here.
So go out.
Karen spoke to Kang Seol at the prepared table.
– Can you hear me?
– I’m ready. The owner just runs forward.
‘Is that enough?’
– Yes, I only think about running. That’s enough.
Karen took a breath and flexed her thigh muscles. The moment just before explosion.
Snowfall began to run towards the capital.
At the same time, Karen also ran forward.
Only flames remained where she passed.
Ur said as he looked at the traces of Karen who had disappeared beyond the darkness.
“… That’s absurd.”
The door of nothingness that was far away from Karen slams in. This means that she is moving at an incredible speed.
If you cross this door, you will reach it in an instant.
I have been fighting this kind of flash for a long time.
She regained her sense of the past.
Light seeped in, and heaven and earth were transformed.
A sense of reality filled my lungs and heart.
From the moment he left the door of nothingness, Kang Seol’s body had already accepted Karen.
Now it was Karen who moved the raven. Snowfall’s movement soon became Karen’s movement.
‘In an instant.’
Moby Dick is seen moving.
It seems that the opponent is a fantasy beast.
‘… Lane was faster.’
If he was able to think outside of his primal instincts at the moment of collision, he was no faster than Lane.
At the moment when Snowfall’s power and Karen’s power came together, the realization that had been there came flooding back to me explosively.
From the beginning, the target was the bell, not the sword.
I caught my eye on the red-hot earth.
This is the path she took.
“… So far.”
As I assimilated with the snowfall, I felt warmth.
It is not a fiery heat, but a warmth created by the house.
It is a longed-for and longed-for embrace.

While Karen and Kang Seol were having a conversation at their long-awaited reunion, others were also having their own conversations.
“Where did such a scary thing come out of? Shouldn’t I check my pockets? “I think there’s more?”
“… Is this your first time seeing me?”
“… Yes, it’s my first time seeing you.”
Jinryeo, Chiu, and Seolhong felt the presence of the newly appeared woman was very unfamiliar.
As expected, the woman had color, unlike Jamad.
It feels like fire is walking around.
In addition to its red color, its shining appearance was also foreign.
If you stand side by side with Moby Dick, you won’t be able to tell who the Hwansangsu is angry at.
“Let’s do it again… yo! “I let my guard down… yo!”
“Hehehe… Kyung, did you just say with your own mouth the reason for victory or defeat?”
For Moby Dick, there will never be another shame like this.
The opponent tried only once and succeeded only once.
If I had tried hundreds of times and succeeded once, I wouldn’t have felt this way.
I was angry.
Moby Dick whispered to the dragon.
“You know, that human… there’s something strange.”
“It’s called extraordinary.”
“No… So, he must be the person who stopped by Socheon last time. “Then…”
Baek Kyung was speechless.
‘You can’t say you blocked my magic even then!’
That would be like admitting that you lost twice.
“anyway! “No human can be faster than me!”
the dragon laughed.
“Kyung, it’s not you who sets their limits.”
“Even I, the dragon, don’t set their limits.”
“… Then who decides? Are you going to say God?”
“On their own.”
“… I’m disintegrating.”
Baek Kyung walked towards Kang Seol with great strides. Karen stood in a strange position and watched Snowfall and Moby Dick.
That location irritated Baek Kyung.
It was a position where he could intervene between the two at any time.
“Ha… That’s it. “Here.”
Baekkyung unwrapped the scent and handed it to Kangseol.
Kang Seol accepted the visit with both hands.
No, I tried to get it.
The sword did not move.
Water fell on Snowfall’s hand.
It was a tear.
“Ugh… Ugh… It’s painful… Having to hand over a treasure like this to someone… I’ve never felt like this before… Ugh… I haven’t…” “
– It’s trash!
– Snowman is trash! It rang! It rang!
– ??? : If I do this, I’ll become trash!
– Doesn’t seem like he’s a bad kid haha. He was a pure Geomtaku….
Finally, Dohyang came into Kangseol’s hands. Baekkyung tried to turn away, leaving his regret behind, but his gaze rested somewhere.
“Now wait a minute…”
“Huh? “What is it…”
“Let me take a look.”
The place where her gaze rested was on the embers of Karen’s sword.
Because she was so polarizing, Karen also helped lighten the fire and confirm it.
Baekkyung checks the embers of the embers with his breath. After a while she concluded:
“Orgoda! “It’s something Orgo made!”
“You don’t know Orgo? These elegant lines are in perfect balance. No matter how you look at it, it goes up?”
Xiamen joined the conversation.
“This is something I made.”
“… You said you were a descendant of Orgo, right?”
Moby Dick walked back and forth from side to side for a moment, put his hand on his chin and thought. Then he asked one or two short questions.
“Maybe this is the masterpiece of a lifetime…”
“It’s not like that.”
“I’m younger than I look, so I’m in good health today and tomorrow…”
“My lifespan is immeasurable, but I don’t think I’ll turn into dust tomorrow.”
“Maybe you’re this man’s slave or something…”
“It’s a terrible assumption.”
Baek Kyung slapped his palm as if he had decided on something.
