-9 Volume 14
The mansion looked old-fashioned, like something you’d see in a movie, and there was a nice arched staircase in the center of the hall.
Above him stood a man in a Russian military uniform.
He was not very tall, but his perfectly trimmed mustache gave him a sense of intimidation. Jeong Dae-sik realized as soon as he saw his lively eyes.
‘You’re an Awakened.’
Victor took off the hat he was wearing and bowed his head politely.
“Long time no see, Colonel.”
He chuckled at Jeong Dae-sik with a arrogant expression and said,
“Is this the all-in-one the author mentioned earlier?”
Jeong Dae-sik stepped forward and bowed his head.
「It is nice to meet you. It’s called Jeong Dae-sik.”
“Hmm. I heard rumors that an all-in-one was born, but I’m sure we’ll actually meet like this. welcome to my house I’ve prepared a meal, so let’s go together.”
They went to a restaurant and had dinner together. The colonel and Victor chatted a few words, but the chatter was meaningless.
At first glance, it seems that Victor thinks the colonel very difficult, so it was a conversation that was close to Abu. Jeong Dae-sik, who was silently listening to the words, answered the question the colonel was asking.
“Yeah, you’re going to Moscow?”
“After you’ve killed Serpent and Herbor, are you going to even kill Chernobog this time?”
“It’s not like that, because there are things to do in the dungeon there.”
“Can I ask what it is?”
“The weapons I collect seem to be there.”
The colonel changed his words to English on the way, because Jeong Dae-shik’s poor Russian was frustrating.
“You are trying to do something dangerous.”
“I can’t help it. If you want to get what you want.”
「Moscow…If you accept my conditions, I will provide you with convenience so that you can get there safely. Also, I’ll attach excellent soldiers under my command. One skill is certain, so I will be able to safely reach Moscow and achieve my goal.”
Jeong Dae-sik raised one eyebrow at the word condition.
“It’s a condition.”
The colonel asked with a secret expression on his face.
“Do you know why the rebel leader is called Durahan?”
“I do not know.”
「There is a huge bounty on his head, but no one can catch him. That’s why he’s called Durahan because he doesn’t have a head.”
By then he seemed to know what the colonel was trying to say. Jeong Dae-sik was silently listening to what he was saying.
“As you know, this country is currently in a civil war. The rebels’ strongholds are hidden in the monster’s realm, so it’s not easy to find them. But if it were you, it wouldn’t be difficult to find it.”
The colonel continued, stroking his handsome mustache.
「If you bring me the head of Durahan, I will give you a personal reward as well as a bounty. In addition, I will provide you with all the goods and manpower you need to achieve your goals. How is it?」
Jeong Dae-sik pretended to think for a moment, then said.
“Isn’t Durahan a strong person who has never left the top 10 in the power ranking? On the other hand, I’m just a kid. Will I be able to deal with him?”
The colonel chuckled.
“You are shivering with humility. Is pretending to be weak a characteristic of Asians?”
The colonel’s words contained racist ridicule. Jeong Dae-sik ignored it and continued.
“Besides, he has one of the 7-star weapons, Delanifoss. You may have mentioned why he is called Durahan, but he has the barding, so he wears such a collar. It’s not easy to deal with because it’s really new. Above all… At present, there are those who aim for that weapon. He must have heard of him at least once.”
Hearing the name the colonel called with an awkward pronunciation, Jeong Dae-sik nodded his head.
“That’s right. I met him in America just before coming to Russia. Not only has he already collected four of the seven-star weapons, but he also has a unique ability to destroy supernatural powers.”
The colonel flinched at the point of destroying the ability. He said, stroking his old mustache, as if trying to hide his embarrassment.
“Is it the ability to destroy the ability?”
“So… is that really possible?”
“The powers given to humans are the realm of God, so there is no way to know. But he confessed that he himself had that ability.”
“Is it possible to collect four 7-star weapons because of such abilities?”
“It cannot be said that there is no effect. In any case, sooner or later he will visit Durahan. I’m trying to take over Delanifoss.”
The colonel had a thoughtful expression on his face.
“If that happens, there is a high possibility that Durahan will lose his 7-star weapons and lose his abilities.”
Suddenly, the colonel frowned.
「What if Durahan defeats the gang leader and protects his weapon? No… What if we get all the 7-star weapons that Gwangpil-doo had? It’s a disaster for us, Russia!”
Jeong Dae-sik clicked his tongue inwardly. Durahan’s problem was going to be taken care of by leaving it to Gwangpildu, but the colonel wasn’t an idiot. Jeong Dae-sik said, reflecting on his stupid treatment of him.
“Of course, that would also be dangerous, but wouldn’t it depend on how you use the lighthead?”
“You want me to use a light-head?”
“He will most likely enter the country to take Delanipos from Durahan. At that time, wouldn’t it be okay to exchange Durahan’s neck with his weapon? Somehow, the battle between Durahan and Gwangpildo will come to an end, and when everything is over…”
“Can I get an advantage between them?”
It was a cowardly operation no different than a hyena.
It was a ruse to help two people fight over the 7-star weapons and then raid when the battle was over, to deal with the exhausted side, seize the 7-star weapons, and get rid of the troublesome rebels at the same time.
It was in the spirit of not wanting to intervene in the civil war that Jeong Dae-sik himself put it in his mouth.
If the colonel was caught by the back of his head and went on a hunting trip to Durahhan, there was a high possibility that he would be in trouble due to various things.
Rather, it was a priority to go to Moscow and acquire Magjeon.
Since Chernobog might be there, he couldn’t afford to get involved in anything else.
Of course, Jeong Dae-sik had no intention of letting him have 7-star weapons, whether it was a Durahhan, a fanatic, or the Russian army. Wasn’t even the most powerful leader swayed by the circumstances around him because he was collecting 7-star weapons and eventually fell for the temptation of that power?
Durahan and the Russian army were in desperate need of the power of Gardness. If he was fully equipped with the seven-star armor, he might be able to subdue the whole world as well as occupy Siberia.
Even if he said he would no longer collect 7-star weapons, it would still remain a risk. In Jeong Dae-sik’s view, it is better for the 7-star weapons to disappear forever. The only answer was to completely erase its identity and disperse it.
‘I don’t care who wins in the end. Before all the seven-star weapons gather, I will take them and destroy them.’
It was possible to gain the upper hand if only 6 of the 7-star weapons could be upgraded before completing the magic battle first and acquiring 1 set.
Jeong Dae-sik’s plan was to allow Durahan, Gwangpil-doo, and the Russian army to wage a three-way battle, then hoard power and seize the 7-star weapon from the last victor.
I thought it was the safest and most amicable solution, but Colonel Vladimir narrowed his eyes and came to the rescue.
“What are you going to do in the meantime?”
“…As I said, I have a different purpose.”
“You came to Russia just for that?”
“Do you think I will believe that? I had contact with the rebels only a few hours ago.”
Jeong Dae-sik almost showed a sign of surprise. But he shrugged it off and said.
“It seems that the people I met during the day were rebels. Since I’m an all-in-one, I tend to attract people’s attention, so I get a lot of arguing.”
“For what purpose did they come to you? Do you want to add power to Durahhan?」
“That is absurd. I thought he was a monster to make a raid, so I chased him away.”
“It is not unusual for an all-in-one capable person to come to this land in a civil war. Because depending on which side you are on, the game can be completely different.”
“I am a foreigner, and I am not on anyone’s side.”
Colonel Vladimir rolled his eyes and slammed the table.
“If you’re not on anyone’s side, stand on the side of justice! Defeat Durahan! And then, to protect Delanipos from the madman. That’s your job.”
Jeong Dae-sik furrowed his eyebrows. The colonel also wants to use Jeong Dae-sik.
If Jeong Dae-shik defeats Dura-Han and acquires Barding from among the 7-Star Weapons, he will fight the Brilliant Leader.
Then Colonel Vladimir also planned to kill the last winner and take the 7-star weapon.
Jeong Dae-sik opened his eyes a little when he saw the part of the table that the colonel had struck down turned into sand and poured down.
The colonel returned with a gentle expression as if he had shouted, and said in a soothing tone.
“As I said, if you kill Durahan, I will not forget that ball. I’ll help you out and do your best to stop the madman. It will also help you get what you’re looking for. Isn’t this a good story for both sides? Please accept my request.”
It was a request, a threat and a coercion.
Of course, Jeong Dae-sik had no intention of obeying him. However, if he left this place due to an exercise of his skills, things would be complicated later.
Not only will he be framed for joining the rebels, but he will also be pursued by the Russian army, making it difficult to get to Moscow.
Long-distance space movement was impossible with Seo Ji-won’s ability. There is no portal to Moscow…
Jeong Dae-sik made up his mind and opened his mouth.
“I’ll give you something else instead of Durahhan.”
“If anything else…?”
Jeong Dae-sik raised his eyes straight and looked at the colonel and said.
“How about the neck of Chernobog?”
“So, you said you were going to get Chernobog?”
Jeong Dae-sik nodded at Lee Jae-woo’s question.
They were coming to the train station to catch the Trans-Siberian train. The soldiers around them were strictly vigilant.
It was said that it was to help the Fenrir unit achieve its purpose, but in reality, it was to monitor whether Jeong Dae-sik was being rude.
Last night, when he heard Jeong Dae-sik’s offer, Colonel Vladimir showed a sign of absurdity. He opened his eyes a little wide, but then he laughed out loud and thundering.
“Ha ha ha ha ha! You want to defeat Chernobog?”
Jeong Dae-sik was a little offended by his disrespectful attitude. He said, glaring at his colonel, without hiding his vulgarity.
“If not me, who has all the abilities, who can defeat Chernobog?”
