-12 Volume 3
It was a great spectacle.
Amid the blue magic wave in the air, the magical light bursts dazzlingly over the barrier that flows like a waterfall.
However, Pil-Doo Gwang, who was actually spreading the shield, was not in the mood to appreciate the scene.
He was sweating hard to stop the devastation that came one after another.
Gwangpildu clenched his teeth with a blood line on his forehead.
‘How can you be so strong!’
The destructive power enough to kill a 15-star monster at once was huge, even the aftermath.
It was understandable that Jeong Dae-sik was trying not to do his best.
If he did his best, it would cause more damage than monsters inflict.
‘If I had been hit directly by this attack, I would have disappeared without a trace…! It is a destructive force that overwhelms even a 7-star armored personnel carrier!’
I don’t know if I can complete the 7-star weapon and evolve it to the goddess level.
From now on, he would not be able to touch even a single hair of his hair, let alone oppose Jeong Dae-sik.
It was only then that Gwangpil-doo understood a little bit that people had rejected him and feared him so much.
In the eyes of others, the ability to destroy special abilities would have seemed as overwhelming and destructive as Jung Dae-shik’s ability now. So, I must have felt an instinctive fear.
That’s exactly how it felt to see Jeong Dae-sik, who had the power of a god.
Gwangpil-doo realized how fortunate he was to claim to be the savior of the world.
If he had claimed himself to be a destroyer, the extinction of mankind would have been like a fixed thing even without the Monster Break.
After defeating Lapu, Jeong Dae-sik obtained Lapu’s Tongue and Sun Moon’s Eye.
Once he had dumped it in the space, Jeong Dae-sik, who had no idea what it was, bought a fairy’s bread and chewed on it.
Suddenly, a large amount of mana was used, and I felt a little nauseous. In reality, the spent magic was quickly replenishing as if it had absorbed Lapu’s life force, but that was the way it felt.
Jeong Dae-sik forgot one more energy bar and turned to Kwang Pil-doo. He had his shield left unattended and stretched out on the floor with a ruler.
It looked like he was exhausted after using all his power to offset the remaining energy of the Demonic Spirit. Jeong Dae-sik said, kicking his leg like that.
“Wake up, this is not the time to lie down like this.”
Gwangpildu stood up and sat down in the booth and said.
“It’s a huge destructive force.”
“As you can see, it’s not as good as it looks. It’s not enough just to kill monsters because the destructive power is too great.”
“If a stronger monster appears, will you respond with stronger magic?”
“If a 16-star or 17-star appears, it will be so.”
“Do you think there will be enough guys?”
“I should have said, it was the last war.”
Gwangpildu got up from his seat. He looked closely at his face as if he felt something in Jeong Dae-sik’s words.
“It seems that there is a reason why you have been given such power. Judging from the way you say it, isn’t it that you have foreseen a situation like this one for a long time?”
Knowing that he had no intention of telling, Kwang Pil-doo did not bother to ask. he said instead.
“For me now, that’s it.”
“If you use more destructive power, I can’t stop you. You need barding. You have to complete the 7-star armor.”
Jeong Dae-sik seemed to agree with Kwang Pil-doo’s words.
“There is no guarantee that more monsters will not appear… Anyway, we must move now.”
The two trudged out of the empty place.
At a point where traces of civilization could barely appear, they encountered the Fenrir troops.
They looked a little dismayed at what the two had done.
Even though he had developed his own skills, there seemed to be some shame about not being able to do anything in front of a 15-star monster.
In particular, in the case of Ki Cheol-min, his expression was very bad. If there was Tyrbringer, he, too, could have played a part.
However, it was as if the role had been taken away by Gwangpil-doo, and he looked full of remorse and dissatisfaction.
However, he did not show such feelings outwardly like before.
He returned the Delight Sword as if it wasn’t mine when the madman appeared. Then he erased the expression from his face and welcomed Jeong Dae-sik.
“You’ve worked hard. Really, it was a great sight.”
The other members of the unit also nodded their heads and said one word at a time. Everyone was expressing their impressions that it was great, but a group of jeeps appeared from the other side.
The cars stopped at a reasonable distance from each other, and soon several Awoken from there alighted.
He was probably wearing heavy armor and ran after hearing the news of Lapu’s appearance.
A middle-aged man who appeared to be in charge of the dogs approached and spoke to them.
“Jeong Dae-sik and… Are they members of the Fenrir Troops?”
Daesik Jeong came forward as the representative and said.
“Yes, but what about you?”
“I am the head of the old Ishtar raid, Kang Il. And over there…”
The man who identified himself as a heavy worker chin on the back and continued.
“New Project’s chief engineering officer, Choi Beom-su, and A-class hunter, Kim Nam-joon… So we can say that we are a temporary coalition unit to kill monsters.”
“Oh, yes. That’s right.”
“I heard that a huge guy who swallowed up all the fighters appeared, so I ran to Cerberus in a swarm… I didn’t know you were there.”
“The 15-star monster was slain.”
“We watched the scene from afar. Really, I can’t put it into words. 15 stars?”
“I think so.”
“Awesome. I know Chernobog is a 15-star. You must have defeated him.”
“Yes. By the way, how are things going now?”
In response to Jeong Dae-sik’s question, Kang Il gave a brief explanation.
“From the very beginning, we succeeded in defending Seoul.”
“It was thanks to you for killing Gula. The Titan raid, Choi Hee, retired hunters like us, and talented people who had stepped back from the front lines all came out and played an active role, so we defeated several major monsters that were trying to enter Seoul and made it to the main road in Seoul. You said MFP? You could install a device to block the access of monsters. Of course, mobs are still installing in the city, but that will be sorted out soon.”
“Okay. What about the general task force?”
“At the direction of the president, Gye Young-il, the vice president of the Constitutional Association, was appointed as the commander-in-chief, and he took over the operational command.
“Then where is the headquarters?”
“They said it was installed in Gwanghwamun Square. Currently, all raid commanders and C-level hunters in the vicinity of Seoul have been summoned to the headquarters. Of course, all-in-one Jeong Dae-sik must also go.”
“Okay. I’ll have to go to headquarters first.”
“Yeah, come with us. The troops will have to go all the way to Seoul together.”
Having said that far, Kang Il looked at Gwang Pil-Doo, who stood far behind the troops with a distracted gaze.
“By the way, isn’t that person a Gwangpildoo over there?”
“Did you know that you ran away? I know that you lost the 7-star weapon. It doesn’t seem like that, looking at how it is now.”
“I got it back. I’m the one who returned the 7-star weapon.”
“We’ll talk more about it as we go.”
Jeong Dae-sik briefly explained the fact that there was no need to worry about Gwangpil-doo in the car on the way to Seoul.
Kang Il showed great reluctance to take a dangerous person with the ability to destroy supernatural powers to a headquarters infested with Awakenings.
However, Jeong Dae-sik assured that no matter what strategy he devised in the future, he would definitely need his ability.
On the one hand, he guarantees that the madman will never do anything nonsense.
Anyway, Daesik Jeong had a record of holding Gwangpildu twice, so he could be held accountable.
Hakgil agreed to go to the headquarters with Kwangpildu.
Soon, the vehicle entered Seoul.
Armed soldiers were strewn all around the MFPs installed in Seoul.
Most of the roads were closed and tanks were as common as any bus.
Jeong Dae-sik felt skeptical at the sight. No matter how much MFP there is, it does nothing but block the approach of monsters.
I wondered how far it would work. When the situation starts, the lives of the soldiers or the equipment at a great cost will become mere pieces of tissue paper.
Of course, the soldiers weren’t the only ones guarding it. Awakened people who had battled monsters in the suburbs of Seoul were returning one after another.
Awakened people were swarming around the defensive positions that the army had hurriedly established. However, since they had already waged a battle with the monsters, they were all tired or injured. It looked quite different from the hunters that are usually seen in front of the dungeon.
As I entered the city center lined with apartments and high-rise buildings, I saw ordinary citizens, all of them trembling with anxiety. They were moving over the monster corpses all over the place to the newly assigned shelter.
There were quite a few people walking around. There were many cars running on the road, and severe congestion was forming around the Han River Bridge.
No matter where I went, I had no choice but to stay in Seoul, so it was practically a meaningless move.
However, the situation is better for the citizens of Seoul, Kang Il explained.
“The only place where the defense succeeded is Seoul. The rest of the metropolitan cities are struggling. In particular, the cities in the inland are suffering so much that people are evacuating to the seashore, but even that road is full of monsters… .. The government seems to be saying that the government has abandoned areas other than Seoul. However, local-based raiders are stepping up to help them evacuate by setting up shelters in safe places, but when is that? I don’t know how far it will go. I heard that 10-star monsters are found very funny. It is said that monsters that seem to exceed 10-star sometimes stand out.”
He sighed as Jeong Dae-shik was nodding his head at what Kang Il said.
“What kind of world is this going to be?”
Befitting his age, he was one of the hunters who were active during the 1st Monster Break.
Like Cheol Woo, he wasn’t that famous, but hunters with thick bones usually recognized his face.
At one time, he was doomed to raid raids and was active in the Awoken League.
But now he was in a retired state, but due to the massive monster break, he had to grab a weapon and come out to the field again.
He said with a bitter expression.
“It’s been about two years since I retired because I wanted to fight enough to fight. The house I was building in the countryside was about to be completed, so I was going to move there.
