Reaper of the Drifting Moon Chapter 429
Episode 429 Ji
Moo-hyung’s head was as complicated as a tangled ball of thread.
Looking at Pyowol’s face, I couldn’t think of what to say.
I didn’t know that Pyo-wol, who was hired as a temporary bo-pyo, would be such a terrifying soldier.
If Pyo-wol harbored resentment, the convoy of the Daeju Corps would have been annihilated overnight.
It was hard to believe that such a terrifying master had been hired as a mere temporary staff.
Ji Moo-hyung did not dare to look directly at Pyo-wol’s face.
Pyo-wol said to Ji Moo-hyung.
“I’ll leave as soon as it’s sorted out.”
“yes! I will.”
Even though he was not Pyowol’s subordinate, Ji Moo-hyung answered politely.
Pyowol turned around and returned to his seat.
“Come with me bro!”
Doyeonsan followed suit.
It was only after the two of them were separated that Ji Moo-hyung let out a sigh of relief.
He stood there for a moment, like a stone statue, clearing his tangled brain.
When his thoughts became clear, he shouted.
“Workers, hurry up and take care of the dead and wounded.”
“The stamps tie up the still-living thieves and put them on carts. I will hand it over to the government office of a nearby city, so hold it tight.”
“Take all the horses the thieves rode. I will sell this at the market as well.”
The subordinates moved busily with the answer.
A horse was almost worth a house.
Even more so, there were more than 100 such words.
All of them are well trained, so if you sell them, you will reap huge profits.
Ji Moo-hyung had no intention of collecting the proceeds from the sale of the horse. He intended to give all the money he earned to Pyo-wol.
Pyowol was the one who subdued all the thieves, so all the money earned from selling the thieves’ goods was Pyowol’s share.
‘You must never touch his heart.’
Even just a little while ago, Seo Gun-hui was the top priority, but everything has changed since this time.
The people he had to take care of first and foremost were Pyowol and Doyeonsan.
It wasn’t that he didn’t take care of Seo Gun-hui, but he had no choice but to be pushed out of the priority list.
If the Demon Swordsman was the loser in one region, Pyowol was a super-high master with a reputation throughout the river.
It was clear who to care more about.
“Move quickly. If this continues, I will be homeless today.”
At his insistence, the soldiers and workers of Daeju Sangdan moved more busily.
As a result, it did not take two inspections, so I was able to organize everything and leave.
All along the way, people were silent.
Both the warriors of Daeju Sangdan and the swordsman’s chief kept their mouths shut without saying a word.
Including the thieves captured, a large group of well over a hundred people moved, but not a single one of them took a deep breath. So it felt even more bizarre.
At the center of it was a pyowol.
Both the Daeju Sangdan and the swordsman’s soldiers noticed Pyowol. However, Pyowol, the person in charge, was sitting in the back of the cart with his eyes closed.
The atmosphere would have been much brighter if Pyo-wol had been talking, but when he kept his mouth shut, the atmosphere became heavier.
Fortunately, the city appeared soon after.
As soon as he arrived in the city, Ji Moo-hyung rented an entire inn. After that, he took the thieves he had captured and headed to the government office.
Pyowol and Doyeonsan were assigned the best room.
As long as he knew the identity of Pyowol, he could not treat him the same as the other Pyoyo. Moreover, he was greatly favored by Pyowol. It was only natural that he would be given the biggest and best room.
Pyowol accepted their favor without refusing.
Doyeonsan said as soon as she entered the room.
“My brother’s well is right outside. I will wash first.”
As soon as Pyowol gave permission, Doyeonsan ran to the well.
There was a lot of blood on his body from dealing with the bandits.
Those who were struck by the moon were still healed.
It was because Pyowol suffered minimal damage and subdued him. On the other hand, the condition of those who were subdued by Do Yeon-san was miserable.
This is because Doyeonsan’s power control was not perfect yet.
I tried to control it, but at least it was serious.
As a result, there was a lot of blood on his body.
Do Yeon-san drew water from the well n.a.k.e.d and washed the blood from her body.
On the other hand, there were no traces of blood left on Pyowol’s body.
Judging from his appearance, he did not look like someone who had fought a fierce battle.
Pyowol, who was looking around the room, took out a tea bowl from the table.
I put water on the brazier and prepared to brew tea.
Pyowol waited patiently for the water to boil.
It was then.
Someone knocked on his door.
“I am Seo Gun-hwi. May I come in for a moment?”
After Pyowol’s permission was given, Gunhui Seo opened the door and entered.
Seo Gun-hwi’s face showed complex emotions.
He said as he took a hug from Pyowol.
“Thank you for the help of Pyo Daehyeop.”
It was a difficult word.
It was Seo Gun-hwi, whose pride pierced the sky.
It was the first time he had taken such a low profile towards someone.
However, it was clear that I had received help, so I had to say thank you.
In Gangho, even the slightest silver won does not go unnoticed. It was Kang-ho’s rule to reciprocate when he received help. Even if it hurts your pride.
“If it wasn’t for Pyo Daehyeop’s help, I would have been raped. I will definitely repay this favor.”
“You don’t have to pay. Because I wasn’t really trying to help you.”
“Still, we need to make sure that we have a relationship with Eun-Won.”
“Then do whatever you want.”
“Can I ask you one thing?”
“Why did you hide your identity? If I had revealed my identity from the start, I would not have committed any disrespect.”
“Because I didn’t want to bother you.”
“Was that just one reason?”
“Do you think there is another reason?”
Seo Gun-hwi bit his lip at Pyo-wol’s question.
After a moment of hesitation, he said something he shouldn’t have said.
“Weren’t you enjoying a sense of superiority? You are already at the top of the river, but didn’t you laugh inwardly when you saw an ignorant kid pretending to be proud?”
His eyes, looking at Pyowol, were filled with the light of jealousy.
It was a common reaction to young martial artists who grew up thinking they were the best without knowing how high the sky was.
It was then.
“that’s right. I laughed.”
Do Yeon-san said as he came in.
The water wasn’t dry yet, so he was wearing only his bottoms.
Seo Gun-hwi’s eyes changed sharply.
“What did you just say?”
“I laughed. Not my brother, but me…”
“What dare you? Is pride really that important?”
“Cover your words and do it.”
“You certainly did. They valued their ego so much, but they didn’t care at all about the feelings of people who seemed inferior to them.”
“Did your brother openly ignore you? You are the one ignored. But why now pretend you’re hurt? Is that the pride of a prestigious family?”
Doyeonsan was bitter.
His voice became a dagger and pierced Seo Gun-hwi’s chest.
Seo Gun-hwi’s lips trembled. But in the end, I couldn’t come up with any excuses.
Do Yeon-san’s criticism made him think about many things.
Seo Gun-hwi closed his eyes and tried to control his emotions.
When his emotions were sorted out to some extent, he opened his eyes and said.
“sorry. my thoughts were short what is your name?”
“It’s Doyeon Mountain.”
“okay! Do Yeonsan. Thank you for waking me up. Sorry Pyo Dae-hyeop. I have committed disgrace.”
“thank you. I promise that this won’t happen in the future. Then rest in peace.”
After Seo Gun-hwi took possession of Pyo-wol again, he went outside.
Doyeonsan said as the door closed.
“Still, I don’t just show my pride without thinking.”
“It looks like you have that much head.”
Do Yeon-san put on a sad expression.
If Seo Gun-hwi was angry and attacked, it was because he was trying to fight.
After gaining the power of the ghost king, he was the one whose confidence reached its peak.
I had no desire to blow up my reputation, but I wanted to fight with all my might at least once. However, I couldn’t forcefully hold on to the person who had already left the room and fight.
He changed his expression and asked Pyowol.
“Aren’t you washing your brother?”
“I need to wash.”
Pyowol got up and headed to the well.
In the dining room on the first floor of the inn, the staff of the Daejoo Merchants were eating in groups of threes and fives.
Pyo-wol saved their lives thanks to the spiral, but their expressions were not very bright. Because so many comrades died or were injured.
There weren’t too many people who drank alcohol in front of them.
Normally, he would have proudly boasted of today’s feat. But today, no one raised their voice.
It was the same for the warriors of the demon chief.
The warriors of the swordsman who occupied a table and sat down silently shared a drink instead of talking.
The complex examination was evident on their faces.
Seo Gun-hwi did not come out of the room at all, and Seo Yul-hee kept her mouth shut because the atmosphere of the people was uncomfortable.
It was then.
The two appeared with the sound of footsteps.
The moment I checked their appearance, the otherwise quiet restaurant was enveloped in silence.
Those who appeared were Pyowol and Doyeonsan.
The Daejoo Sangdan and the swordsmen at the swordsman looked at the two with bated breath.
The two looked around for a while and then sat down in an empty seat.
“What would you like to order?”
Jeomsoyi asked cautiously.
Since he was a quick-witted kid, he understood that the atmosphere around him was unusual. It also means that there are Pyowol and Doyeonsan at the center. Therefore, the attitude toward Pyowol had to be more polite.
“Bring what others eat.”
“How about alcohol?”
“I do not need.”
“Then you only want to eat? All right. Just wait a little bit and I’ll bring it to you.”
Jeom So-yi bowed her head to Pyo-wol and ran towards the kitchen.
Doyeonsan looked around and said.
“The atmosphere is chilly.”
“Ayu! Be embarrassed.”
Do Yeon-san exaggeratedly rubbed her shoulders with both arms.
It was then.
“Can I sit here?”
Before I knew it, Seo Yul-hee approached me and asked.
Do Yeon-san smiled and handed over a chair.
Seo Yul-hee quickly sat down.
“I won’t come out of my room.”
“I guess someone shocked me a lot.”
Seo Yul-hee looked at Pyo-wol.
“are you okay?”
“I am surprised. Are you still my brother?”
“My brother is a person who has never failed. You know that you are the one who moves the world. That’s why he’s very cold towards people other than himself. If you are lower than the standard you set, you tend not to see it as a person. So, you can experience defeat once in a while. Only then will you re-evaluate yourself soberly.”
Seo Yul-hee was bitter.
Do Yeon-san found Seo Yul-hee strange.
Seo Yul-hee did not like her brother very much.
It is said that there are not many close siblings in the world, but Do Yeon-san terribly cherished her brother.
Because of that, he became enraged at her death and stained the Taihu area with blood.
If possible, I tried not to get caught up in the people involved, but I’m sure there were people who lost their lives innocently.
It was the original sin he had to carry with him until he died.
The reason he committed such an original sin was because of his younger brother and his family.
Do Yeon-san said while holding the teacup in front of her.
“Be nice to my brother.”
“Because it is much better to have than not to have.”
