Reaper of the Drifting Moon Chapter 468
Beef noodles were delicious.
Of all the food Pyowol ate while wandering around Gangho, it was definitely enough to count on five fingers.
It was Pyowol, the usual source of news, but the beef noodles were so delicious that I emptied the entire bowl.
At about the same time as Pyo-wol, Seon-hye Ki finished all the beef noodles. A satisfied smile appeared on Ki Seon-hye’s face as she ate cleanly without leaving a drop of soup.
“how is it? Is it the best?”
Pyowol agreed without hesitation.
he said, putting down his chopsticks.
“Now tell me.”
“I’m sure you didn’t come here just to have a meal. Isn’t there some other reason you bought food for me?”
“Can’t you just think of it as a favor?”
“Is it pure favor?”
“Ah… it is.”
Seonhye Ki frowned slightly.
“What do you want?”
“Actually, I have something I want to ask of you.”
“I’ve told you beforehand, but you can’t.”
“The snake is curious, but it is not very important to me.”
“Actually, there are medicines I want to get.”
“Why are you telling me that? I need to tell the apothecary.”
“It’s because it’s something you can’t get by ordinary means. It is a medicine that cures madness, but it is only available in very small amounts in the world. But all of those medicines are in one place.”
“Medicine for madness?”
“yes! It is a medicinal material called Eohyeongcho (魚形草). It got its name because the blade of grass resembles the shape of a fish. It is particularly effective in curing madness and is also highly effective in restoring damaged heart veins.”
“You mean you need that herb?”
“yes! You need it to fix a thirteen-year-old boy.”
“So please save me?”
“If there is a chance,”
Seonhye Ki said calmly.
“It seems to be in a hard-to-reach place.”
“that’s right. You can never get the stuff that went in there back by normal means. So I’m asking you. Because I think you can definitely get something there.”
“Thank you for overestimating me, but I see no reason why I should be taking the risk. A dangerous place?”
“Then pretend you didn’t hear it.”
Pyowol rose from his seat.
Ki Seon-hye hurriedly said.
“The New Moon Field is dangerous, but you can still save it.”
“Did you say it was the new moon market?”
“yes! New moon market.”
Pyowol frowned slightly.
The name Shinwoljang caught his ankle.
“You said you collected the eohyeongcho at the New Moon Market?”
“Did you say that eohyeongcho is especially effective for madness?”
My brain tickled.
It felt like a fragmented picture was being put together.
‘Damn the disgrace. It’s clear that someone in the new moon is suffering from madness.’
It was understandable that they plundered the original Buddhist scriptures in Chengdu, going so far.
It was clear that he was desperate enough to force the plunder even though he knew that Pyowol would intervene.
The question was, who was suffering from madness?
It was clear that he was a fairly important figure, considering that it was not easy to seek Buddhist scriptures or collect fish-shaped plants.
“I beg you. A soldier like you wouldn’t be able to deal with it easily at the New Moon Market. I’m not forcing it, but if you ever meet the head there, ask him to share some of the fish mold.”
Feng Zun did not tell her the true identity of Pian Yue. Even so, she makes this request because she noticed that Poong-jon was paying attention to Pyo-wol.
If it was a warrior enough to be noticed by Fengjon, it was clear that he was one of the best warriors in the world. That is why I am making this request.
Ki Seon-hye was asking for it with pure intentions, but it was burdensome for the listener.
“I can’t say for sure. But when I get it, I will send it to you.”
“I can’t promise you.”
“That’s enough. Because it is a mother child, a person, a person, and a child.”
“Do you believe in the sky?”
“If you don’t believe in that, it’s a difficult world to endure. Anyway, don’t you have to believe in something so that you can hold on tight and live?”
Ki Seon-hye stared at Pyo-wol.
Her hat was pressed so deep that she couldn’t see it over her nose, but her eyes were so intense that they could see right through the hat.
“Not everyone is like you.”
“Be strong, believe in yourself, and don’t be shaken…. Everyone lives shaken. There are very few people who live as firmly centered as you do. And all such people stand at the center of the world.”
“You speak as if you know me well.”
“I don’t know. But I think I know.”
Suddenly, Ki Seon-hye pressed her face closely to Pyo-wol’s.
They were so close that they could feel each other’s breath.
Seonhye Ki lifted Pyowol’s hat and looked at her face.
Ki Seon-hye whispered after seeing the pure white and handsome face hidden under the hat.
“Pyowol Daehyeop, right?”
“That’s right. I see you can’t answer anything. Judging by how deeply he wears his hat, he seems to be reluctant to reveal his true identity. Is that right?”
Ki Seon-hye smiled and returned the hat she had lifted up slightly.
“I’ll keep covering it like this from now on.”
“Because other women won’t let you go.”
Seonhye Ki laughed softly.
“The warm sun makes me sleepy.”
The soldiers guarding the main gate of Soyang yawned.
There was still a long line of people waiting to enter Soyang in front of the door. They waited for their turn every now and then, but not all could fit into the literacy.
Like Soyang, in order to enter a city surrounded by walls, one had to have a clear identity. The soldiers sent only those with a clear identity to Soyang. Either he or only those who pricked the hermit in their pockets were allowed into the castle.
There were a lot of people trying to get inside, but the soldiers checking in were slow.
The soldiers had no reason to hurry.
If you can’t let it in today, you can let it in tomorrow.
Those in a hurry stabbed the hermit. It wasn’t too late to pass it then.
But even this kind of activity must be done carefully.
There would be no life left if he did such a thing to a high official or a strong master.
Just then, a monster in a dark red uniform entered the soldiers’ field of vision.
Hair that was messed up and a beard that covered his chest.
All that could be seen on the face were two ghastly eyes and a nose.
The moment they saw the monster, the soldiers swallowed their saliva.
It’s because I felt a creepy momentum from the monster.
They were soldiers who met more people than anyone else. Of course, I couldn’t help but notice.
They instinctively noticed that the monster was an unusual being.
One of the soldiers asked the commander.
“What should I do?”
“What should I do?”
“Do you just let it through?”
“Do it in moderation and let it pass.”
“Aren’t you taking a penny?”
“Would you risk your life to earn a few bucks?”
“It’s not like that…”
“I’ll just pretend to check it properly and let it pass.”
The soldier replied as if he couldn’t help it.
Finally, the monster came close.
In an instant, all the soldiers in front of the front door froze. It looked daunting even from a distance, but seeing it up close, I couldn’t even breathe properly.
Even though the soldiers were right in front of his eyes, the monster didn’t even look at them.
His eyes were fixed on the plaque high above the gate.
Her voice was as dry as her appearance.
The monster strode straight to the castle gate.
Soldiers blocked the monster’s way in order to pretend to check, albeit formally.
At that moment, the heads of the soldiers who stood in the way of the monster exploded like pumpkins on the ground.
The soldiers widened their eyes.
It was because the sight of his comrades’ heads exploding in front of him was unrealistic.
“It is murder.”
Screams erupted from people in line.
It was a murder right in front of my nose.
The people who saw the terrible sight of a person’s head exploding went into a stupor.
No matter how easy it is to kill, it was not common to see people die so horribly.
The soldiers were also frozen.
“oh my god!”
At the death of their comrades, they did not know what to do.
Originally, I had to run for revenge. If anything, they would have done the same. But the gap was so vast that they didn’t even dare to step in.
said the monster.
“Who else will stop?”
“I remembered all the faces. If this becomes a problem today, I will find and kill not only you but also all of your family members.”
The soldiers were speechless at the monster’s threat and only trembled.
He thought that with the shocking power of the monstrosity he had just shown, he would be able to do so.
The soldiers kept their mouths shut.
The leader, who should be in charge of them, also turned his head away and avoided the monster’s gaze.
The monster looked at the soldiers and moved to the gate.
The soldiers hurriedly opened the castle gate, allowing the monster to enter.
The soldiers let out a sigh of relief only after the monster disappeared.
I didn’t even dare to take revenge or make the problem bigger.
The death of a colleague was unfortunate, but they were just grateful that they were not the target.
The captain yelled at them.
“You b*stards! What are you doing without getting rid of the body first? Are you going to leave it like this?”
“Come on, get rid of it!”
The soldiers answered and collected the bodies of their comrades. However, it was not easy to rectify the body with the head blown off.
Even the corpse of a complete stranger is bound to make you sick, much less the corpse of a colleague with whom you were talking with a laugh a moment ago.
The soldiers who were collecting the body vomited in vain.
Some sat down and sobbed.
The captain understood those subordinates.
Ordinary people would feel like the grim reaper, but they themselves were like rabbits in front of tigers in front of masters like that.
The foreman gritted it.
Even so, losing his subordinates could not be comforting.
I couldn’t even figure out how to convey this tragedy to the families of the soldiers who lost their lives.
The captain muttered as he looked inside the castle gate where the monster disappeared.
“What is that monster? For what purpose did you come here?”
It seemed that a thick bloody smell was already wafting from inside the castle.
