Reaper of the Drifting Moon Chapter 497
Pyo-wol opened the door with Hong Ye-seol and came out.
Nam Shin-woo was the first to find it and ran to it.
Do Yeon-san and Eun-yo also ran to Pyo-wol.
Pyowol looked at each of their faces and said.
“Is everyone okay?”
“We are fine!”
“Hyung… how do you think you’ve gotten better?”
Do Yeon-san looked up and down the pyowol.
Not only did the scars heal, but the atmosphere also changed.
I couldn’t explain it in words, but I felt like I felt a lot more sticky energy than before.
As if he had suddenly remembered Do Yeon-san, he undid the wrist armor he was wearing on his forearm.
It was worn to camouflage as a table moon.
The Vambraces made by Dang So-Chu with great care fell in his heart. However, Doyeonsan could not bring out all the performance of the Vambrace.
Vambraces were items that Pyowol had to wear to show their true value. So, Doyeonsan was able to give it back to Pyowol without regret.
Pyowol kicked a pair of Vambraces on his forearms.
It felt good to wrap the back of my hand and forearm at once.
Do Yeon-san took off her bloody clothes and handed them to Pyo-wol. Pyowol accepts and puts on the blood wind without hesitation.
Do Yeon-san asked him as he clasped his fingers.
“Brother, what are you going to do now?”
“I’m going to the New Moon Market.”
Do Yeon-san widened her eyes in surprise.
It was the same for others.
Nam Shin-woo and Eun-yo were at a loss for words, and even Hong Ye-seol and Salno were so surprised that they only blinked their eyes.
No matter how fatal the wounds were treated and the metamorphosis was achieved, it was still time to recuperate.
Originally, after making a big achievement, I had to take time to recover my enlightenment. Only then can you make enlightenment completely your own.
There was no way Pyowol was unaware of that fact. So, even if Pyo-wol’s wound was healed, he thought he would spend a few more days cultivating it. However, Pyowol’s decision exceeded their expectations.
Hong Ye-seol asked cautiously.
“Wouldn’t it be better to rest a little longer?”
“Isn’t it strange?”
“What is it?”
Hong Ye-seol frowned.
Pyowol looked at the corpses of the blood demons and said.
“They are only part of the total force. If they haven’t returned, we should have sent a follow-up. But you are still quiet.”
“The So Yeo-wol and Song Chun-wu I know aren’t that lax. Just as persistent as I am.”
“is that so?”
“Are those two still quiet? It doesn’t make sense.”
“So you want to check it out?”
“He is a really unstoppable person. You are really out of your mind.”
Hong Ye-seol shook his head.
He thought he was a formidable dog breed, but Pyowol was really on a different level.
Pyowol was more vicious than the venomous snake hiding under his clothes.
“I take it as a compliment.”
Pyowol moved on. Then, as if it were natural, Do Yeon-san, Eun-yo, Nam Shin-woo, and faithfulness followed him.
Seeing this, Hong Ye-seol sighed deeply. But I didn’t dry the epitaph.
She sent a signal to Salno and the Black Slayer to move.
Salno came to Hong Ye-seol’s side.
“Why are you laughing so much?”
“It just suits me well…”
“What is it? That human and me?”
“Then who else is here?”
“The old man is senile.”
“Hehe! I can understand why Yeonju risked his life so much. A man should have that kind of selfishness. It is also the hope of our assassins.”
“Who is the hope?”
“That man Ryeonju likes.”
“At first I doubted him. I mean, isn’t that reputation overblown? But when I saw it with my own eyes, I knew it. The author is the only one who stands at the pinnacle of assassination.”
Salno’s expression was hazy, as if possessed by the existence of Pyowol.
Hong Ye-seol clicked his tongue, but did not bruise him.
Because she too had the same thoughts as Salno.
Salno looked at Pyowol’s back and thought.
‘Well, since he’s a man of that level, he must be able to handle yeonju.’
Hong Ye-seol was never a green existence.
He was rumored to be intelligent since childhood and also had a strong personality, so he was a talented person that everyone coveted.
It was only natural that Hong Ye-seol stood out.
Hongyeseol was the epitome of Sorijangdo (笑裏藏刀).
The kind that hides a knife in laughter.
Such people never trust or rely on anyone easily.
Hong Ye-seol was the same.
She never gave up on anyone. She was revealing her true feelings to Pyo-wol without hesitation. That meant believing in the epitaph.
‘What a wonderful person you are. In many ways.’
Salno laughed and moved on.
Pyowol really headed for the new moon market.
It took a full day to get from the village where he was treated to Shinwoljang. In the meantime, Pyowol moved without taking a break.
It was hard to believe that he had suffered a life-or-death injury just a short time ago.
Every time he hit the ground lightly, Pyowol’s body stretched out like an arrow.
Although Pyowol boasted outstanding light engineering skills before, the level of light engineering he is showing now is different.
Everything that existed was bound to fall to the ground. However, Pyowol was arrogant as if rejecting the laws of the world. Like a bird’s feather, it feels weightless at all.
The expressions of Hong Ye-seol and Salno, who were looking at Pyo-wol’s back, were colored with astonishment.
Since he was the same assassin, he noticed how amazing the body movements Pyowol was showing him now.
‘What the hell…’
‘He’s already in a different realm from us.’
There was so much of a gap that I wasn’t even jealous.
Pyo-wol did not know the feelings of the two and spread light air.
After running for a while, the new moon field finally appeared in the distance.
Only then did Pyowol and the others slow down.
Salno cautiously opened his mouth.
“From now on, I have to approach it secretly…”
Shinwoljang, the base of Guryongsalmak, was nothing else.
Of course, there would be numerous elite troops, so it was right to be extremely careful. However, Pyowol did not care and moved to Shinwoljang.
Salno tried to grab the pyowol.
“I’m not one to listen to others.”
Hong Ye-seol stopped Salno.
“And I’m not reckless. There must be a reason why that person behaves like that.”
Salno only let out a low voice at Hong Ye-seol’s firm attitude.
Hong Ye-seol also moved freely following Pyo-wol.
Conceptually, this shouldn’t be the case. However, Pyowol was a being that thoroughly denied the common sense of the world. In order to follow in the footsteps of such a leap, he too had to throw away his common sense.
In the end, he led the Black Slaughter Corps and carefully followed Pyowol.
The new moon was getting closer and closer.
Salno, who was very nervous, put on a suspicious expression.
Because it was too quiet.
Considering the scale of Shinwoljang, it was impossible.
A manor of that size never sleeps.
People had to move around twelve o’clock a day to return to the manor. When so many people moved, of course, I couldn’t help but feel the presence. However, at the new moon market, I didn’t feel any popularity.
as if it were empty.
They arrived in front of the main gate of Shinwoljang. However, there were no unmanned guards at the front gate.
“How did this happen?”
It was impossible with Salno’s common sense.
Knowing how sophisticated the Guryongsalmak was, the suspicion inevitably grew.
It was absolutely impossible for a group like Guryongsalmak to leave the main gate empty.
Pyowol opened the door without hesitation and went inside.
Through the wide open door, I could see the scenery inside Shinwoljang. But the scenery inside was strange.
Only dead bodies were visible everywhere, but no human warmth was felt at all.
As if it had been attacked, the inside of the new moon hall was in a mess.
Doyeonsan and Eunyo looked around to see if there were any survivors. However, no survivors were found anywhere.
Shinui frowned and murmured.
“Have you been attacked by other clans?”
“It looks like they fought among themselves rather than that.”
Salno approached and spoke softly.
“What do you mean?”
“Can’t you see? The scars left on their bodies.”
“As expected, I don’t know because I’m a member of the parliament.”
“If you’re ignoring me as a member of the council…”
Salno ignored the fiery faith and picked up a sword lying nearby. Then he thrust his sword into the wounds on the corpse.
God’s eyes widened.
Because the sword and the scar fit perfectly.
So did the other corpses.
The weapon rolling on the floor and the scars left on the corpse’s body matched perfectly.
“What the hell is this…”
Shinui made a confused expression.
In the meantime, Pyo-wol went deep into the new moon field.
The inside was worse than the outside.
Hundreds of bodies were visible.
All those who died seemed to be soldiers of the new moon field.
Doyeon-san approached and whispered.
“Did they really fight among themselves?”
“It seem to be like that.”
Pyowol nodded and examined the corpses closely.
Some were dead with knives stuck in each other’s chest.
It was clear that it was cool.
Do Yeon-san looked at the corpses with her brow furrowed.
“Why are they gentle?”
“They didn’t want to see a rolling stone reigning over their heads.”
So Yeo-wol and Song Chun-wu were people around Guryongsalmak.
At least, So Yeo-wol inherited the blood of Guryongsalmakju, but was far from the center of power.
From the point of view of the leadership, So Yeo-wol and Song Chun-wu were mere usurpers who took advantage of the confusion and seized the power of Guryongsalmak.
At first, he fell for So Yeo-wol’s instigation and went to Cheonwonsa to kill Pyo-wol. However, when So Yeo-wol and Song Chun-wu left with all their might to kill Pyo-wol, a desire for power arose in the minds of the remaining people.
Makju and Roh Tae-tae were both dead.
As long as So Yeo-wol and Song Chun-woo were killed, anyone could become the leader of Guryongsalmak. It was more strange not to be greedy.
They tried to seize Shinwoljang by taking advantage of the absence of So Yeo-wol and Song Chun-wu. However, the resistance of those who followed So Yeo-wol and Song Chun-wu was stronger than expected, and while it took time, the two returned with the Bloodghost Corps.
A series of processes were clearly visible in Pyowol’s eyes.
The fight was intense.
Even looking at the scars on the bodies that could not be repaired, it was clear that a fierce fight had taken place.
It was unknown at this time who would become the winner of the fight. However, Pyowol guessed that Soyeowol would have won.
“I would have liked it. Those who sent me to hunt down and kill me never returned. You would have thought I would be alive. I wanted to send the pursuers again, but it must have been too late. That’s why we moved our base. In preparation for my attack.”
They both knew about Pyowol as well as Pyowol knew So Yeowol and Song Chunwoo.
The leap they knew was not a person who gave up and hid just because he had been hit once. Pyowol was the one who had to retaliate further than that somehow.
They thought that if Pyowol was really alive, he would return to Guryongsalmak as soon as his wounds healed.
If Guryongsalmak’s power was normal, he would have waited for him to come. However, due to repeated civil wars, the strength of Guryongsalmak in Sinwoljang was greatly deteriorated. That’s why it moved its base altogether.
Guryongsalmak has always prepared a base to relocate to in preparation for the worst case scenario. There, it was clear that he intended to hide until the internal chaos was completely settled.
“You’re cunning. Soyeowol!”
Pyowol clicked his tongue.
