Reaper of the Drifting Moon Chapter 410
Agave couldn’t sleep all night.
After tossing and turning for a long time, she eventually gave up sleeping and stayed up all night with her eyes open.
She got out of bed before dawn.
Pyowol and the Ghost King did not wake up yet.
With their abilities, they would be able to notice signs of their movement without waking up.
Because both of them had martial arts and senses that transcended human limits.
Agave came out not caring that they would wake up.
After briefly washing his face at the well, he picked up a hoe and headed to the field.
Time passed quickly as I squatted in the field and pulled out the grass.
When she came to her senses, the sun was rising over the mountains and dyeing the whole world red.
Agave straightened her back and took a deep breath.
She sighed with her eyes closed.
Although martial arts such as swordsmanship were out of hand, he did not miss a single day of ungong.
The hot energy of the sun seemed to enter the body following the breath.
The agave used the deep air of the amipa to capture the energy coming into the body.
A moment later, when she opened her eyes, a moon came into her field of vision.
Pyowol, who had come out before she knew it, was staring at her.
said the agave, blushing.
“When did you come out?”
“In a few hours ago.”
“I must have seen everything in flight.”
“You seem to have more strength than before.”
“I don’t have any specific plans to increase my strength, but since I was flying like a habit, it naturally became like that.”
Pyowol nodded at Agave’s answer.
Pyowol also continued to do ungong without missing a day.
The internal energy accumulated through the Bunroessa Soul-Heart Method was steadily being accumulated in the Danjeon even now.
Innocent was such a being.
Even without a weapon, he was always flying and prepared for any eventuality.
Agave may have let go of her sword, but she hasn’t given up on being a warrior yet.
Although she herself was unaware of that fact.
Agave came to Pyowol.
Perhaps because he had been working since morning, Agave’s body smelled of earth.
It no longer had the alluring scent it used to, but I thought it was much better now.
“Wash up and wait a bit. I’ll have dinner ready soon.”
Pyowol nodded and went to the well.
After briefly washing my face with cold water, I returned home, and before I knew it, the ghost king had risen and was sitting at the table.
The ghost king still had his eyes and ears covered with a cloth. Even so, I sensed that the moon was coming in.
“Have you washed up?”
“Why don’t you wash too?”
“I don’t have to wash. If you use your inner energy, time will naturally fly away.”
“Still, I wouldn’t be able to wash it with water.”
“Why is washing so important?”
Pyowol nodded and sat down in front of the ghost king.
Inside the Mook, Agave was preparing a meal for a long time.
I only cooked fresh rice and brought out the leftovers from yesterday’s meal.
The table was set up just like that, and the three of them started eating.
During the meal, Agave asked Pyowol.
“How long are you going to stay here?”
“I am leaving today.”
“So fast? Why don’t you stay longer?”
“I don’t have that much time.”
Agave slightly frowned at Pyowol’s plain reply. But then he said it as if nothing happened.
“Then I can’t help it. If you happen to pass by the area again in the future, stop by. I will always be here.”
“Did you promise?”
Agave’s expression slightly brightened at Pyowol’s confirmation.
It was then.
“oh my! What’s happening?”
“Come see me.”
Suddenly, people’s voices were heard at the entrance of the village.
In the unusual atmosphere, Agave jumped to its feet.
“I’ll be gone for a while. Keep eating.”
She ran outside without listening to the two of them.
All the villagers gathered at the entrance.
“What is it?”
“Ouch! Dragon sozer!”
“Why are you like that?”
“Look at this. well! Jooyoung…”
The village chief was speechless.
His eyes were already stained red.
Agave looked in the direction the village chief pointed. There, I saw an object covered in a mat.
Agave instinctively recognized that the object inside the mat was a corpse.
It was because the scent of poetry was pouring out through the mat.
Agave got down on one knee and lifted the mug. Then I saw a body that was already decomposing.
It was a young man named Lim Ju-young.
He was a young man who settled down and lived in the village like an agave plant.
He was diligent and kind to everyone, earning the trust of the villagers.
“Didn’t you say you were going to the city a few days ago?”
“Right! The villagers saved money because they said they were going to buy plows and farming tools.”
Since the slash-and-burn village was so remote, people had to go to the city to get daily necessities. For this reason, it was common for the villagers to ask him to buy something when someone said he was going to the city.
It was the same case this time.
Upon hearing that young and healthy Lim Ju-young was going to the city, the villagers asked him to give him money to buy necessary things.
Lim Ju-young readily agreed.
I also needed agave, so I asked him.
It was time to return, but there was no news yet, so it was a car that I thought was strange.
Yongseolran took a closer look at Lim Ju-young’s body.
Quite a few traumas were visible on the body, which was already undergoing decomposition. The most lethal of these was a long stab wound in the side.
The decisive cause was that someone stabbed Lim Ju-young in the side with a sword.
“Where did you find the body?”
“This friend went hunting and found it twenty miles away.”
The man pointed out by the village chief was the only hunter in the village.
The man usually tilled the fields, and when he had spare time, he would carry an arrow and hunt around the area.
The roe deer and wild boar he caught became a valuable source of nutrition for the villagers.
The agave plant said to the hunter.
“Could you guide me to where the body was found?”
The answering hunter’s complexion was very dark.
This was the first time a member of this village had died.
Since it was such a small village, most of the members lived openly and openly, like real brothers.
The hunter thought of the dead Lim Ju-yeong as his own brother. Because of that, the sense of loss and anger he felt was very great.
It was time for Agave and the Hunter to leave the village.
“We go too.”
Suddenly, the voice of Pyowol was heard.
When I turned my head and looked, I could see Pyowol and the ghost king opening their glasses and looking at Lim Juyeong’s body.
said the agave.
“You don’t have to do that.”
“You have to pay for the food you ate.”
She was well aware of how terrifying an assassin the leap moon was.
With his powers of observation and tracking, finding the pleural fluid would not be too difficult.
The four left the slash-and-burn village and moved to the place where the body was found.
The body was found in a remote forest far off the road. The body would never have been found had it not been for a hunter who had stumbled upon it while chasing a wild boar.
“Here it is. Jooyung was lying here.”
The hunter pointed to the place where Lim Ju-young’s body was found with a sad face.
Pyo-wol got down on one knee and inspected the place where the body had been.
“There were at least three more people here. One seems to be quite large, judging from the large and deep footprints. The person standing on this side seemed to be supporting his body with a spear or rod, and the person standing there was wearing a sword.”
Pyowol inferred the size and weapons of those who were here from the traces left on the floor.
Agave’s expression became serious.
“So you were robbed?”
“It’s not just a robbery.”
“Why do you think so?”
“Did you see the scars on the body?”
“yes! What about it?”
“The scars are messy. It’s a trace of playing with it. If they were simply aiming for goods or money, there is no reason to play with them and kill them.”
“You mean you killed for fun?”
“I think so.”
“Who would have done that and for what purpose?”
“I can’t tell from the traces left here.”
A lot of time has passed and many traces have disappeared. At least it was a month, so I figured it out like this. Looking at the others, they couldn’t tell what had happened or how many people were there.
So was the agave.
Mu Gong was strong, but he was a young gem soldier who observed and reasoned like this.
“Can we find them?”
Pyowol looked around instead of answering.
Pyowol’s eyes shone as he gazed at the grass for a long time.
This is because they found the traces hidden by the blades of grass.
“You came on horseback.”
“A mere robber came after him on horseback?”
Agave thought it was nonsense.
If he was riding a horse, it meant that he was backed by financial resources to some extent. There was no reason for such people to pursue, harass, and kill Lim Ju-yeong.
This is because the items Lim Ju-young bought were tools necessary for everyday life, not important items.
“Can I find out where they went?”
“I’m not sure I can find it, but I can try to track it down.”
I was thinking of finding it even if the agave didn’t ask for it.
He has to pay for the debt he owes to her, but more than anything else, the situation itself intrigued him.
It was not common for horsemen to chase people to remote places like this and play with and kill people.
Pyowol soon began to follow the trail.
The agave plant said to the hunter before following the leopard.
“I’ll come later, so go back to the village first.”
“Are you okay?”
“Do not worry.”
“Okay! Be careful, dragon sozer!”
The agave left the hunter behind and flew in the direction the moon moved.
Seeing the back of the agave plant disappearing as a dot in an instant, the hunter unknowingly let out an exclamation.
“her! That’s amazing. I don’t understand why such a great person lives in a remote area like our village.”
The hunter shook his head and returned to the village.
Quite a bit of time had passed and few traces remained, but the epitaph was unstoppable.
When a large animal like a horse passes by, it always leaves a mark.
There are also various traces such as hoof marks left on the floor, broken tree branches, and crushed grass.
Pyowol did not miss a single trace that ordinary people casually pass by.
It ran almost two o’clock like that.
The agave ran close to the moon, and the ghost king followed from behind.
Not only Pyowol and the Ghost King, but also Agave were great masters.
Even after running for two hours, there was no sign of exhaustion.
It was then.
Pyowol, who was running in the lead, suddenly slowed down.
Agave and the Ghost King reduced their speed accordingly.
The place where Pyowol stopped was a low hill with overgrown bushes.
Agave didn’t want to ask why, but kept her mouth shut.
It was because a group of people could be seen at the bottom of the hill.
More than thirty men were scattered here and there taking a break. And on one side, the horse they seemed to ride was grazing.
There were over thirty horses grazing.
It meant that all the men had come on horseback.
Horses were very expensive and expensive to maintain.
Thirty men were all riding the nobles that could not be maintained without financial support.
It meant that they were not ordinary people.
The momentum emitted by the men was also unusual.
Agave asked cautiously.
“Are you saying there are thoraxes among them?”
“The traces have led to them.”
At that time, the ghost king, who had been silent, opened his mouth.
“They smell familiar.”
