The conditions of the first gateway have changed.
I thought that the darkness accumulated after killing the night beasts would be enough, but the condition was changed to defeating the gatekeeper.
‘He must be much more dangerous than a tiger…’ He
hasn’t collided with a large object yet, but if it’s something bigger than that…
‘It won’t be possible right now.’
No matter how much I think about it, I think the problem was that Shin Kang didn’t go out through the designated door. Wouldn’t the five paths merge? Wouldn’t the demonic beasts that reigned there fight and make a mess of the gateway?
‘Well, that doesn’t change what needs to be done.’
After hunting the night beast and strengthening your abilities, head to the second gateway.
‘Because the place where you spend the most time in the labyrinth is the first gateway.’
Even if there was a problem with the second gate, the previous facts would not have changed much.
It was true that Kang Seol was agitated by Shin Hyeon’s words, but since it did not immediately cause a problem, he composed himself and continued his night hunting.
When exactly three days had passed.
That guy appeared.
‘This feeling of déjà vu…’
The guy approaches with heavy breathing, as if he’s intentionally revealing his presence.
‘… Are you saying that if you can respond, try to respond?’
It’s been a long time since I last appeared, and once again, it’s a difficult test.
The guy simply charged in as fiercely as before, but the pressure was considerable.
‘Do you think you’ll get hit this time too?’
I gave a signal to the darkness to prepare for the coming attack.
A dark creature that bends both arms to defend its neck and head.
It wasn’t visible here clearly due to the dust, but it seemed like the dark creature didn’t fall all at once.
This is because the battle was continuing.
It was a fight that was almost embarrassing to call it a battle. The wolf moved by Shinyu continued to push the darkness, and the darkness was busy defending.
But the important thing is.
“It won’t break through easily… you guy.”
It is the fruit of blood and sweat.
Now that it has reached the level of the season, its defensive power cannot be underestimated.
Shinyu seems to have felt that his defense was stronger than he thought, so he walked over to the darkness to break his center.
Kang Seol grinned.
Living in the dark has learned.
That firmness and persistent vitality are his strength.
And that you have to use it.
Shinyu crawls into his arms as soon as his legs come up.
After knocking it down, it seemed like it was planning to attack the weakly defended area.
At first glance, it seemed like an opportunity.
‘… be patient. ‘Not yet.’
At the signal of snowfall, the darkness leaped back and protected itself with its back to a tree.
It felt like watching a fighting match between giants.
Kang Seol was so focused on the fight that he didn’t even notice the sweat dripping from his hands.
This itself was very valuable data.
Since the Shadow Life has excellent learning ability, fighting against the strong itself is helpful to it.
Viewers viewed Shin-yu as a bad boy who had come to destroy the sand castle he had worked so hard to build, but to Kang-seol, he felt like a guest who had come to help him.
‘Have you changed your style? The sound has changed.’
Shinyu shakes the defenses of the darkness that has curled up like a turtle.
No matter how powerful the Divine Yu was, the being it resided in was an ordinary wolf.
Like the Dark Life, it could not repair its body with the blood of the origin, nor could it protect itself with the bones of the origin or strengthen its body with the skin of the origin.
‘… It’s overwhelming.’
Nevertheless, Shinyu consistently overwhelmed the darkness. No, he attacked so fiercely that he couldn’t even touch it.
‘I held on!’
Snowfall and darkness waited for their time.
Because there will definitely be at least one chance.
A fist pumped from below and soaring upward. If you hit it right, the defense will be breached and you will be taken over.
However, the movement has many gaps.
‘Now! ‘Dig in!’
As soon as there was a signal, the darkness rushed into Shinyu’s arms.
It looked like he was holding Shinyu with both arms. I thought I definitely caught it….
Shinyu kicks up with both feet in the air, widening the distance from the darkness.
The attack was in vain.
Even night beasts breathe.
Instead of having lungs, it maintains its shape by sucking in the darkness around it.
Shinyu and the Dark Life once had a fierce battle, and even though the Dark Life received a huge barrage of attacks from Shinyu…
‘… did it. ‘I did it!’
It still stood firm.
There were clearly some areas where the flesh was crushed and dented here and there.
But it stood.
That brought an indescribable joy to Kang Seol. The growth of the darkness was equivalent to the growth of snowfall.
My heart was pounding.
‘I can’t believe he’s still standing against Shinyu…’
The opponent lost his body, but it was the hand of the Sentai Sword Saint. I was proud of the darkness that did not fall even in the hands of the swordsman who reached his peak.
Shinyu, who retreated, turned his gaze away from the darkness and looked at Kang Seol.
This was the first time that Kang Seol learned that even night animals could make facial expressions.
It didn’t seem like a joke.
It felt like that.
Just… a happy smile.
Shinyu tore off his left arm below the shoulder.
The torn off left arm is just darkness. And it soon changed its appearance.
The arm became a sword.
The sculpting was clumsy, so it was quite blunt and there were residues left here and there, but it still had the shape of a sword.
And… at that very moment.
The air surrounding this place has changed.
It was a strange feeling.
The thought that no matter what I did, I could not jeopardize my divine healing in that state, dominated my mind.
‘The bones of the beginning…’
Shinyu’s sword moved.
No, when I came to my senses, I had already swung the sword.
The body of the darkness was split in two diagonally.
Neither the primordial skin nor the primordial bones that had just begun to form could stop it.
As if it was a fact that had been established from the beginning. That’s how the results appeared.
Shinyu returned the sword to its original form.
Snowfall saw a dark creature broken in two and struggling on the ground.
It felt as vain as snow melting in the sunlight.
– Are you frustrated?
The sentence that Shinyu left behind was the one that best expressed him.
A child with a good heart.
However, this child’s absurd martial principles always instilled frustration in those around him.
To the prosecutors who walk the same path as him and even to his brothers, the Shin family.
Xinyu hesitated like a child worried about what to do after he had done something.
It seemed like he thought that Snowfall might collapse because of this. So he might incur the resentment of his brothers.
However, Kang Seol’s reaction was the opposite of Shin Yu’s expectations.
He shook his head and said:
“We moved forward. are you okay.”
– What does it mean?
“I made you swing the sword.”
– Is that all?
“Okay, that’s all for now. “You just have to take things one at a time.”
Shin Yu looked into Kang Seol’s eyes.
He is lost in thought, watching the squirming figure of the shadowy creature, as if he is not even paying attention to Shinyu.
Somehow, if he were still alive, his eyes were so calm that I would have gotten goosebumps as soon as I saw him. Shinyu met those eyes and thought of someone for a moment.
His third brother, who had become so distant that he could never be reached again.
Shinyu, who had been looking at his deep-sea-like eyes for a moment, turned and tried to walk away.
Grief on Snow’s shoulder shouted.
【I’m backing off now… but I won’t leave you alone next time! Oh, if I were to introduce myself, I’d say I’m Bitan!】
Shinyu left, leaving behind Bitan, who poured out words that made it difficult to guess whether he was a villain or an employee of a business partner.
“Have you seen Heartbreak?”
These were the words that Kang Seol said after Shin Yu left a while later.
【I saw it flashing!】
“You didn’t see it either.”
Kangseol devoted all his concentration to the fight, but when he relaxed, he collapsed on the floor.
“I couldn’t even see the slash. “What should I do?”
I had no clue.
I lost my mind at the incredible destructive power of the slash.
How fast is it?
If we combine the strengths of Shin Hyun’s quick sword and Shin Rip’s heavy sword, will a sword like that be created?
‘More solid? ‘Faster?’
Can the problem be improved that way?
‘… No, this method has its limits. I… just created a strong and stubborn giant.’
That was the current situation when the snow fell.
A doll that is strong and fast, but has nothing special about it other than that. That was darkness.
And it was himself.
‘If it were Jamard….’
Would Jamard have been defeated by Shinyu?
No, if it was Karen.
If it was Karuna.
If it was Ur.
It was not easy to imagine them losing.
Shin Yu clearly possessed unrivaled strength, but Snowfall’s summoned beasts were also heroes of a reversal.
Maybe it will be a good fight.
It’s the starting point again.
How can I reach them and Shinyu?
‘What should I do?’
The difference between Kang Seol and the criminal was that he did not get frustrated with failure.
The point is to find a breakthrough in frustration.
‘It’s impossible to knock it down. There is no need to defeat him.’
In the first place, the conditions of the bet with Shinyu were not to beat him. It was whether or not I could get out of the labyrinth.
Still, Kang Seol thought of a way to convince himself.
I wanted to see Shinyu embarrassed.
I wanted to prove myself.
The gap with Shinyu is catastrophic.
If we were to defeat him, it would be better to hope that he dies a natural death.
Kangseol sighed and tried to bring back the body of the darkness floundering on the floor.
“Good job Darkslayer… Huh?”
There was something strange about the way he was struggling.
The same actions were repeated as if there was a bug in a certain area. Strangely regular movements.
After thinking for a moment, Kangseol gave up on retrieving it and moved the lower body of the dark creature to connect with the fallen upper body.
Then, the darkness rises up from the floor.
Kang Seol carefully observed the actions of the dark creature. There must be a reason why he shows this abnormality.
Did something break?
The guy kept making diagonal downward motions with his arms.
It was too clumsy to be called an attack, and too serious to be dismissed as a joke.
I wonder if I’ve lost my mind over the gap that’s so big.
I burst out laughing at the boy’s awkward movements.
【ha ha ha! funny! Buzzing! Boom!】
【… Wasn’t grief supposed to make you laugh? Then I won’t laugh. Hap….】
“No, that’s not it….”
Even though Kang Seol had good eyes, he couldn’t see Shin Yu’s slash properly.
It was natural. I didn’t even cross swords with him, I just watched from the side.
It was also his sword power.
A destructive force that only shoots out at those who cross swords with each other.
So, no evaluation can be made.
The moment when Shinyu’s sword moves.
The tremendous energy flowing from the movement, like a twinkling star.
“… I need to check.”
Snowfall copied the transformation of darkness that Xin Yu had done.
It’s not that difficult compared to when I created the night beast. Of course, since it was my first time, it was crude enough to resemble a stick rather than a sword.
A crude and large sword that Snowfall had made by grasping the darkness was held in the hands of the darkness.
Grief rubbed his eyes.
Only then did the movements of the shadowy creature, which had been clumsy all along, become natural.
The thing wasn’t broken.
“…I see you.”
The darkness falls many times.
In this way, it imitates light.
“I saw it…”
The reason he was good at stealing was because he resembled the owner.
