-9 ep 17
His expression was bright. He was confident he had killed the Idu Troll, but soon disappointment appeared on his face.
The attack was shallow, and the two trolls were still alive. Two of his arms were severed and two of his heads were lying, bleeding from his shoulders, but he stood still.
If the troll was an opponent, it would be meaningless if it couldn’t be defeated in one hit. The troll healed his wounds in an instant, and his severed arm began to sprout again.
Ki Cheol-min, who bit his lip after seeing the scene, soon found out why the attack did not work properly.
He let out a swear word and spread the knife to the side. Then, the green blood of the troll was sprinkled on it, revealing the pale blade of the blade.
It was an expensive sword, but it had faint cracks. Probably because he caught a lot of monsters while in the Hawaiian Islands, his weapon was damaged. When I looked down at Ki Cheol-min’s increased magical power, the day couldn’t stand it.
Ki Cheol-min couldn’t do this or that when he saw the troll regenerating his arm, because if he swings his weapon one more time, the blade will break.
Seeing the scene, Daesik Jeong took out the weapon he had stored in the space.
Jeong Dae-sik threw the sword that exploded like a ray of light at Ki Cheol-min.
At that moment, Ki Cheol-min, who looked back, caught Tyrbing, who was flying in. He immediately discarded the damaged weapon and flew back into the air, clutching Tyrving.
Soon, Cheol-Min Ki did his best to defeat the two trolls in one blow.
Tyrving emitted a bright brilliance that seemed to tear the night sky in an instant.
Even Jeong Dae-sik was so dazzling that he had to close his eyes for a while.
When I opened my eyes again, there was no trace of the two trolls left. The ground and the railroad were deeply dug, and Ki Chul-min stood in front of it with a bewildered look.
He looked down at Tyrving in his hand and let out a moan.
“…what the hell is this…?”
“It’s the weapon that Herbor had, Tyrving.”
Embarrassed, Ki Cheol-min stammered until the end. He must have been surprised by its power, and he must have been even more embarrassed by the word Herbor used.
Knowing the weapon’s identity, he muttered as he taunted the blade to and fro.
“Somehow… It’s amazing. This weapon… It feels like a surge of magic.”
In fact, around the blade, a bright light was swirling like lava flowing. Tyrbing was a super-special weapon that maximized its effect by working with the user’s magic.
Jeong Dae-sik said to Ki Cheol-min, who couldn’t take his eyes off Tyrbing.
“This is already a master-class weapon, with evolving characteristics. If you can craft it in Tyrbringer, it will exert greater power.”
“I… do you mean me?”
Jeong Dae-sik nodded to Ki Cheol-min, who questioned him like someone who heard an unbelievable story. Even Tybringer was a legendary weapon, so it would be a huge power for him.
In fact, it was a weapon that could evolve even into the final stage, Tyrwenger, that is, the Gardenness class, but he did not say that fact.
Jeong Dae-sik also agreed with the general theory that G-class power was too great for a human being, and he didn’t want Ki Cheol-min to sell his mind to have that power.
If Ki Cheol-min is qualified enough to have that much power, Tyrving will naturally go through the stages of evolution without even talking about it.
“Now this weapon is yours.”
Ki Chul-min’s expression fluctuated as he heard Jeong Dae-sik’s words. He looked like he wanted to ask if he thought it was okay to give him a weapon like this without anyone else.
However, Ki Cheol-min was a person with an extraordinary pursuit of strength. Instead of showing needless humility or refusing to be intimidated, he calmly accepted Tyr Bing.
Jeong Dae-sik turned the topic around while smiling brightly.
“By the way, what do you do with this?”
Tyrving’s power was too strong, and the railroad tracks and the surrounding land were torn apart as if an earthquake had occurred.
If this happens, it will take a long time to restore the railroad tracks. Seeing the scene, Ki Cheol-min scratched the back of the head with a mournful expression.
“I didn’t know what a great weapon this is… I couldn’t control my power.”
At that time, it seemed that the treatment of the Cockatrice from the back was finished. A shout was heard, and soon the Fenrir troops came to Jeong Dae-sik with mercenaries.
“The Cockatrice has been taken away.”
“I asked if Russian monsters were unusual, wasn’t it?”
At the words God Deok-hwa said, Lee Jae-woo groaned, and Kim Song-geun bruised. Among them, Mi-rae Heo, who came after cleaning up the situation in the room, saw the broken railroad track and said:
“By the way… how did that happen?”
Ki Chul-min answered her question instead.
“I broke it while fighting the two trolls. It’s going to take quite a bit of time to start over.”
Then Seo Ji-won shook her head.
“You don’t have to. You know me?”
He stepped forward and immediately used his powers.
As the space began to crumble, the sight before the railroad was destroyed returned. The mercenaries who saw this opened their eyes wide and groaned.
When I heard them chattering, they were all amazed and afraid. While looking at the Fenrir troops with awe-filled eyes, a man who seemed to be the leader among them came forward and said hello.
“Thank you for helping us. Without you, many would have lost their lives or left behind. If you are abandoned in this kind of field, even if you are alive, you are not living. If it’s not rude, may I ask for your name?”
Jeong Dae-sik asked for a handshake in response to his polite, unmanly Russian attitude.
“We are a Fenrir unit from Korea. I’m Jeong Dae-sik, who is in charge of the Fenrir unit.”
“My name is Igor, the captain of the mercenary corps hired by the Railroad Bureau. If you came from Korea, are you, oh, oh, all-in-one?”
Jeong Dae-shik was startled by Igor’s words and opened his eyes a little wide.
“Yes. Yes, though. How did you know that?”
Igor looked back and shouted at the other mercenaries.
“That was true! All-in-one is here!”
Soon the sound spread like an echo.
「All-in-one is here!」
When Jeong Dae-sik was perplexed, he shouted and the mercenaries gathered around him. They stood in front of Jeong Dae-sik, took off their hats, and bowed their heads.
“Please, get rid of Chernobog!”
“I want to return to my hometown.”
“Please help us take back our land!”
It was not known what the word was, but it was true that they were going to kill Chernobog, so Jeong Dae-shik held their hands and said.
“Don’t worry. Chernobog will fall and the monsters will disappear.”
Major Mikhail was watching the scene while everyone was weeping. He had an unknown bitter look on his face, and he didn’t even know he was displeased that he had to entrust the fate of his country to a mere foreigner.
However, it was highly likely that it was Colonel Vladimir who leaked the rumors about Jeong Dae-sik’s existence. He is trying to put some kind of responsibility on Jeong Dae-sik so that he cannot get out of this situation easily.
Or it could have been a situation manipulated by the rebels. They, too, would know that Jeong Dae-sik had met the colonel, and they would have thought that, hopefully, Jeong Dae-sik might come to catch Durahan. So, to prevent meddling in the civil war, Jeong Dae-sik is trying to make Chernobog hunting a reality.
Regardless of the source of the rumors, the earnestness of the people in front of them must be true. Perhaps because of his earnestness, the incident that Dae-sik Jeong appeared in the Hunter Association spread like wildfire.
Feeling that hunting Chernobog was becoming a bigger job than he had thought, Jeong Dae-sik had to promise over and over again that he would surely defeat Chernobog.
The train, which started again after a fuss, stopped in Irkutsk only halfway to its destination. We decided to change cars there, and when we left the train station, we saw a street with a very different atmosphere from Vladivostok.
Still, Vladivostok had the feel of a pretty bustling city, but Irkutsk felt that the country was at war. There were few people who looked like ordinary people, and most of them were soldiers, mercenaries, or hunters.
The fact that the monsters in the vicinity were buzzing with the monsters came to my mind as all the stuff loaded in the trucks passing by was a by-product of the monsters.
There were even several restaurants selling monster meat.
Seeing that scene, Mi-rae Heo frowned and said,
“Eating monster meat… Is it okay?”
“It is inevitable because there will be a shortage of food. Hunters sometimes eat monster meat when they are isolated in a dungeon.”
“Aren’t Hunters still Awakened? Even if they are polluted with death power, they can purify them with their own magical powers, but ordinary people are different. I don’t know how the effect will appear.”
Hearing Kim Song-geun’s murmuring, Ki Cheol-min spit it out in a cynical tone.
“That would be better than starving to death.”
They ate in the few remaining restaurants under the guidance of Major Mikhail. The menu was soup with bread and some bacon. That alone was not enough to fill the stomach with the energy that each of them had brought.
Then the people who were sitting in the dining room glanced at them. Soon a man got up from his seat and came closer.
Seeing the scene, the soldiers who were sitting in other seats immediately got up and stopped the man.
“Stop! What’s going on?”
“Can’t I buy some food?”
“I don’t have any food to sell to you.”
Seeing the soldiers threatening the man, Jeong Dae-sik stopped him.
“it’s okay. Leave it alone.”
The soldiers withdrew with dissatisfaction, and Jeong Dae-sik said.
“What do you need?”
“I would like to buy some energy bars. We were hunting monsters around here, but robbers stole our food.”
Hearing that, Jaewoo Lee said a word.
“No, they said they were hunters, and the robbers stole their food?”
Then the man explained with a puzzled expression.
“The horses are robbers, they are still children. I was so hungry that I couldn’t take my food back. So I’m trying to find food here, but it’s not easy to find. If you have enough food, please exchange some of the items we have.”
“What do you have?”
“There are scrolls and potions, and there are a lot of alcohol and cigarettes.”
Jeong Dae-sik exchanged a box of energy bars in the subspace for a bottle of alcohol along with a scroll. He often became hungry while using Yama Phan, so he had stored a large amount of emergency food just in case.
