-9 Volume 15
The colonel, who wiped away the tears that welled up from his eyes, said with a look of remembrance.
“Well, in a way, you may be right, but you have never actually seen Chernobog, have you?”
“If it’s a documentary video, I’ve seen it.”
“You can’t feel the power of Chernobog from that. I was from Moscow.”
“Have you ever seen Chernobog in real life?”
“yes. I was there when he destroyed Moscow. At the sacrifice of his family, he escaped there by surviving four lives. What happened after that is indescribable. But I can assure you, all the pain and suffering I have experienced until I am here is incomparable to the despair I felt when I saw Chernobog. Why is his name Chernobog?”
The colonel rolled his eyes and groaned.
“It is an existence that cannot be classified as a monster. It’s a dark god! He is not an opponent that humans can dare to fight.”
“…I just killed Herbor, one of the five giant beasts, a while ago.”
“Things like Herbor are nothing but small daggers. The 5th colossus and everything that people say are just words that people have attached to it. Chernobog is in a different class from Herbor.”
“I know that Chernobog is at the top of the 15-star … monster risk classification.”
“You said He’s not a monster. Literally the devil, the god!”
Colonel Vladimir threatened Jeong Dae-shik in that way, but did not turn down his offer to defeat Chernobog.
He knows his priorities. He said fighting the rebels was important, but getting rid of Chernobog was more important.
As evidenced by his Moscow origins, the colonel was well aware that one day he would have to defeat Chernobog.
Even if Jeong Dae-sik failed to kill him, he could get various information based on it, so it was not a loss-making business.
Moreover, the plan that Daesik Jeong mentioned was not bad to let Durahan and the gang leader fight and take advantage between them.
Thus, Jeong Dae-sik and Fenrir’s troops got on the train together with the soldiers sent by Colonel Vladimir.
“The train has arrived. Let’s go.”
The person who was entrusted with the support of the Fenrir unit by the colonel was Major Mikhail.
With his guidance, the Fenrir troops were assigned the best first class seats on the train. It was a bed room, so I could sleep on it, and the window was wide, and there was a table, a cabinet, and a small bathroom attached. Moreover, it was convenient because it was close to the restaurant car.
“For some reason, I thought I would be very poor if I took the Trans-Siberian train, but I’m proud of it.”
Heo Mi-rae responded to the words Song-geun Kim muttered.
“The economy seats in the back will be scarce. People ride a lot.”
“But now you can’t cross Siberia on this one. Shouldn’t the name be changed?”
Until they got on the train, chatting useless chatter, the atmosphere of the troops was normal.
They did not bother to ask the reason, although they showed a curious look at the fact that the soldiers were accompanying them.
Because he completely believed in Jeong Dae-sik, he did not have any doubts. But when the talk that Chernobog had to be defeated, everyone turned pale.
“How could we not avoid such a promise… Chernobog as much as possible?”
“Anyway, our goal is to fight magic. There’s no need to fight such a monster.”
After hearing what Jae-woo Lee and Cheol-min Ki were saying in turn, Dae-sik Jeong pointed out.
“It is our plan to do as little damage as possible, but it is also our plan to assume the worst case scenario. So the main point is not changed. And if we can defeat Chernobog, we will have a big harvest. That way, I won’t have to worry about the lighthead anymore.”
“Are you going to gain another power from the Magi?”
Jeong Dae-sik nodded at Ki Cheol-min’s question.
“Yes. Everyone must be aware of what we have agreed on about the Magic Stones from the dungeons we are attacking.”
While everyone nodded, Jeong Dae-sik continued.
“The value of the magical gemstones obtained after defeating Chernobog will be beyond our imagination. As a result, the ability we can obtain will also increase dramatically. Even if we just settle the magic gemstones, we can earn a lot of money. It’s probably enough money that you don’t have to enter the dungeon until then. If you stop, wouldn’t it be worth risking your life for?”
There was silence at Jeong Dae-sik’s words. Silence means positivity. Jeong Dae-sik knew that no one was against him and continued his speech.
“Of course, defeating Chernobog will be more dangerous than any hunting we’ve ever done. But we still have time before we come face to face with him. It will be a rough road to get to his dungeon in Moscow. Because half of Russia’s territory is nested and monsters are swarming, you will be able to go through enough training until you reach Chernobog.”
God Deok-hwa, who had been silent, abruptly spat out.
At those words, all the members of the unit smiled bitterly and wildly.
Jeong Dae-sik saw the confidence return to their faces. However, in any circumstance, Chi Chul-min, who was cold-hearted, pointed out what happened after the hunt that other colleagues had not been thinking about.
“But even if you take down Yongke Chernobog, there is no external danger. There is no guarantee that the Russians won’t do the same to us the hyenas.”
Ki Cheol-min was worried that the Fenrir units, exhausted after hunting Chernobog, would be raided by Russian soldiers or the awakened to steal and kill what they had acquired.
But Jeong Dae-sik glanced at the soldiers standing on the lookout outside the train car and said:
“Maybe if they follow us into Chernobog’s realm and survive, too.”
Jeong Dae-sik thought that they would not be able to fulfill their duties. So, when he was asked to apply, he stubbornly refused.
Colonel Vladimir’s intention to send a support unit with him was obvious, and most of all, his dearly sacrificed lives were precious.
“For Chernobog hunting, my troops are sufficient. If you take the soldiers with you, you will only be killed.”
“My unit is not an ordinary unit. A special unit made up only of the Awakened. You don’t have to worry about them as they’ve been fighting with monsters and the rebels who are capable. They have skills comparable to any other hunter. It would be helpful, not a hindrance.”
In the end, he could not refuse the colonel’s words and had to accompany the special support unit led by Major Mikhail.
They had a total of fifty people, and it was questionable how many of them would survive. And that fear soon became a reality.
Chapter 54. Demon King
Clap Clap Clap… Clap Clap Clap…..
Jeong Dae-sik, who had fallen asleep to the sound of a train running as a lullaby, woke up after hearing a rumbling noise from another bed.
Once I opened my eyes, my consciousness became clear in an instant, and when I went outside, Mi-rae Heo and Jae-woo Lee were clinging to the car window in the hallway.
Seeing that Jeong Dae-sik came out, the two of them pointed out the window where they could not see anything because it was dark. When he tilted his head as he couldn’t see anything else, Mi-rae Heo said as if he was in trouble.
“Isn’t the train running too fast from before?”
“I’m almost running at high speed.”
Come to think of it, it was much faster than the average speed to pass by the scenery outside the car window. I don’t know if the passengers are taking advantage of the sleeping time to slow down, but it seems to be getting faster and faster.
Eventually, when all the other unit members woke up, a soldier came in from outside and explained the situation.
“The monsters are chasing after the train. I’m accelerating to get rid of them, so don’t worry about it and go to sleep.”
“A monster? What kind of monster are you talking about?」
“Cockatrices often appear in this area.”
If it was a Cockatrice, it was a monster that looked like a chicken, and it was a fairly menacing monster with a 3-4 star rating. They sometimes appear as boss mobs in low-risk dungeons, but I was concerned about the word ‘bastards’.
“How many Cockatrices are chasing?”
The soldier asked as if strangely.
“Of course it’s a bunch. There will be about 20 or 30 of them.”
Hearing those words, Jeong Dae-sik turned into a shocked expression. Cockatrice haunts herds. Is it really on a Russian scale? Thinking that it was a country occupied by monsters, Jeong Dae-sik said as he saw the train rattle precariously as if it was about to derail.
“Are you able to outrun them?”
“Since this is a plain, the railroad is straight. You can do it if you run at top speed. Even if it is difficult to get rid of it, the mercenaries will solve it.”
The train was hiring mercenaries as a way to protect passengers from monsters. Killing those who threaten the train with them on board.
I don’t know what their skills are, but it seems that the train cost has increased a lot.
He said that one family’s monthly living expenses were broken even to buy the cheapest seat at the back.
For now, he replied that he would know, and Jeong Dae-shik sent the troops back to their respective beds. He too returned to his bed, but the train was running like it was about to break, and he couldn’t sleep. Jeong Dae-sik sat quietly and looked at how many monsters there were by extension of his attention.
‘About these guys chasing after the train… about 20? And…….’
Jeong Dae-sik, who was concentrating on consciousness, was startled.
A monster was detected in the direction of the train.
I don’t know what kind it was, but I had an ominous feeling. The train might just hit and pass, but if it’s running so fast and it’s a big guy, it might derail.
Then, a catastrophe was pictured in Jeong Dae-sik’s mind. At that time, even the engine room seemed to have noticed the monster blocking the railroad tracks.
The whistle sounded loudly, and the roof suddenly thumped. As Jeong Dae-sik opened the window and pulled his neck out, he saw several armed men running over the roof of the train.
It seemed that they were none other than mercenaries.
Their behavior when they were awakened was not much different from that of ordinary hunters. However, he had a wire hanging from his body, and when he reached the lead, he fastened his body by hooking the iron at the end to the safety bar attached to the edge of the train. Then, they fired a weapon such as a bazooka toward a front invisible to the naked eye.
Lights flashed in front with a roar. I couldn’t see how things were going by sticking my head out the window. However, the monster Jung Dae-shik sensed through the expansion of the week did not disappear. He was still alive, and suddenly the train began to brake.
Plugging device geek-!
When I hit the brake while driving at high speed, the inside of the train was a mess.
People shuffled around, screaming, and all the belongings placed in the luggage compartment spilled out, causing a commotion.
