Reaper of the Drifting Moon Chapter 509
“What is it?”
“What’s going on?”
Oh Seok-gyeong and his subordinates who were outside rushed into the cabin, startled by the girl’s screams.
It was something that would never happen normally, but the girl’s scream felt unusual.
The first sight that caught their eyes was Choo Yeon-seung, who was lying on the ground with blood dripping from his neck.
They cried out as they watched Yeonseung Choo. But they couldn’t get close to Choo Yeon-seung.
It was because he saw a man standing quietly behind Choo Yeon-seung’s corpse.
It was a man with a deeply pressed hat attached to a black bloody robe.
I couldn’t see his face because of the hat, but the moment I saw him, goose bumps ran through my body.
Blood dripped from the dagger in the man’s hand.
I could tell without asking whose blood it was.
It was the blood of their supreme leader, Yeonseung Choo.
Oh Seok-kyung stepped forward and shouted.
“Who are you? How dare you kill Haeungbang’s ark. Whose order did you receive it from?”
I could tell at a glance.
It means that the person who killed Choo Yeon-seung is of the same type as them.
Instead of answering, the other person waved his hand slightly. Then, the girl who had been standing in a daze lost consciousness and collapsed.
Oh Seok-gyeong and his subordinates swallowed dry saliva. It was because he did not know what method the opponent used to subdue the girl.
The opponent was a master that they did not dare to cut.
‘Why is this person like this?’
No matter how much I thought about it, I had never been so good at this level.
It was then.
Unable to overcome fear, several of his subordinates rushed at the man.
The raincoats that hung from their waists cut through the air.
He attacked the man with the Hong Eun-bi technique.
They figured that if they couldn’t take the man’s life, they could at least embarrass him. What they really wanted was a momentary loophole that appeared then.
It was then.
The man waved his hand again. Then, his body, right before the heavy hit, oscillated greatly and missed on its own.
The moment the subordinates raised their eyes, the man swung his hand once more. Then the raindrops that had flown at him changed direction and flew to their masters.
Bido was pierced into the owner’s chest and face as it was.
The servants screamed desperately and died.
All that remained were frozen.
It was a sight that could not be understood by their common sense.
Among them, only Oh Seok-gyeong realized what had happened.
In his eyes, he saw a gift that was faintly connected to the man’s finger.
Right before the rain blows fired by his subordinates hit, the man swung his gift and snatched them all. Then, using the gift, he sent the dagger back.
Suddenly, a person popped into his mind.
‘A man who possesses the gift of harvesting people’s souls, stealth techniques that no one can detect, and the best killing method in the world.’
There was only one such person in the river.
“Reaper? Why is the god of death…”
Oh Seok-kyung was so shocked that he could not speak.
Just recognizing Pyowol’s true identity made her whole body tremble like an aspen tree.
The two letters ‘Sashin’ pressed down on his chest and shoulders like a mountain.
I couldn’t even dream of rebelling.
The opponent is one of the best absolute masters in the world.
It was also said that several of the Eight Constellations lost their lives to him, although the veracity of the rumors was unknown.
Oh Seok-gyeong and his subordinates, as well as Haeungbang’s entire staff, would not be able to touch a single hem of Pyowol’s clothes.
At that time, Pyowol opened his mouth.
“Oh Seok-kyung! Haeungbang’s hidden second-in-command. Am I right?”
“I heard that you actually run the Salmun run by Choo Yeon-seung.”
“That too… that’s right.”
Oh Seok-kyung answered meekly.
Pyowol already knew everything.
He wasn’t stupid enough to lie to such a person.
Moreover, it was after the death of Chu Yeon-seung, who was to be loyal. There was no reason to risk your life to lie.
Above all, he glimpsed the hope of life in Pyo-wol’s long talk.
Pyowol, known to Gangho, was not a person who spoke at such length.
Rather, it was an existence that chose to kill it cleanly and finish it perfectly. The reason such a person spoke at such length was because he had something he wanted.
“From now on, I will entrust you with the solution.”
“Are you talking to me?”
“Don’t you want to leave it?”
“Oh no. It can’t be.”
Oh Seok-kyung hurriedly hit his head on the floor.
His forehead was cracked open and bleeding, but he felt no pain.
My heart beat more violently than ever.
Entrusting him with Hae-eung-bang was tantamount to declaring that he would look after him soon.
That is the messenger of the world.
The one who stood at the pinnacle of assassins.
I heard rumors that even Baek Gwi-ryun in the world would give way to Pyo-wol. It was an opportunity to become the limbs of such a tremendous existence.
He said, banging his head on the floor again.
“If you entrust Haeungbang to me, I will follow you wholeheartedly.”
“Don’t forget that promise. The moment you break your promise, you and everyone in this room will lose their lives one day.”
“That will never happen. Oh Seok-gyeong’s life belongs to the four gods. I will be loyal to you until the moment I die.”
Oh Seok-kyung was sincere.
It was to become a subordinate of the Shinigami, not someone else.
There was no greater honor than that for one who walks the path of an assassin. At least Oh Seok-gyeong sincerely thought so.
The voice of Pyowol was heard again in his prostrate ears.
“All assassinations are forbidden until ordered otherwise.”
“I will keep it in mind.”
Oh Seok-kyung answered in a voice so loud that he was afraid that his throat would burst. Then he waited for the next command from Pyowol. However, no matter how long I waited, Pyowol’s voice was not heard.
Oh Seok-kyung and his subordinates carefully raised their heads.
A sigh of relief escaped their lips.
Because the pyowol had already disappeared.
He disappeared as suddenly and without a trace as when he appeared.
Everyone here thought they had achieved considerable success as assassins, but compared to Pyowol, it was nothing more than a bloody hemorrhage.
After a long time, one of his subordinates asked Oh Seok-gyeong carefully.
“How do you do it? You must follow the order of the death god.”
“Are you…really going to follow his orders?”
“Do you have the confidence to survive without following?”
“Let me tell you clearly here. I will follow him As he said, I will hold the Haeungbang in my hand and wait for an order. He who will not follow me, speak now.”
Oh Seok-gyeong looked at his subordinates with eyes full of intent to kill.
The subordinates trembled.
They had no intention of disobeying Oh Seok-gyeong, who was directly chosen by the envoy.
“I will give my allegiance.”
“The target of loyalty is wrong. swear allegiance to the god of death.”
“I will be loyal to the death god.”
“good night. From now on, we will take control of Haeungbang and await orders from the messenger.”
“First of all, give that girl back to her father. Apologize and politely return it.”
Oh Seok-kyung’s gaze turned to the fainting girl.
I thought that it was fortunate that the young girl had not yet been tainted by Choo Yeon-seung.
Shang Yin (湘陰) was a city located south of Dongting Lake.
It was a city at the mouth of the confluence of the Naengsu River and boasted a fairly large scale.
Many boats were docked at the Saneum Wharf.
Many of the ships that entered Dongdongho docked at Sangeum. That’s because the marina is so big and wide.
At sunset, another boat was coming into the Sangeum dock.
It was a huge Unmado riverboat.
“Finally arrived at Saneum.”
Passengers on the Unma Dogangseon burst into cheers.
It was because his whole body was itching because he had been on a boat for several days.
The gaze of the passengers was all toward the dock. so i didn’t notice
A man quietly appeared behind them.
The man who appeared without a sound or presence was Pyowol.
Hong Ye-seol welcomed Pyo-wol’s return.
“How did things go?”
Hong Ye-seol smiled and shook his head.
It was a pyowol that there was nothing to give a definite answer to. That’s why he says this because things have worked out really well.
Belatedly, Do Yeon-san and Eun-yo found Pyo-wol and approached.
Pyowol told them.
“Let’s get off the boat.”
“Then, are you going to sleep in the inn tonight?”
The three people were delighted.
They didn’t choose a bed for a while, but sleeping on a rocking boat added to their fatigue. So I wanted to sleep on the shore for a day or so.
Unlike them, Chae Chae-ok’s face, watching from a distance, showed a hint of fatigue. It’s because I’ve been thinking all night.
I came along by chance, but it seemed like I was swept away by something too big.
We got into a fight together, but thinking about it, we didn’t care too much. I couldn’t dare to predict the extent of the aftermath of this incident.
Chae Chae-ok shook her head slightly.
“Something will work.”
At that time, the ship docked at the dock.
When the platform was lowered, the passengers scrambled to descend.
Pyo-wol and the party waited for all the other passengers to go down, and finally landed on the shore.
“I think I will live.”
“I never thought I would miss the earth this much.”
Do Yeon-san and Nam Shin-woo made a fuss.
Eunyo laughed at the two of them.
Pyowol looked around and said.
“Since we have to board the boat again tomorrow morning, let’s sleep in an inn near here.”
Eun-yo and Nam Shin-woo answered at the same time.
Hong Ye-seol said with a smile.
“Don’t worry about where to sleep. Salno must have already prepared it.”
Come to think of it, Salno was nowhere to be seen.
This is because Hong Ye-seol and others got off the ship in advance and were looking for a place to sleep.
After a while, Salno appeared and bowed his head to Pyowol.
“I found an inn. Please change your seat.”
Hong Ye-seol said with a slight frown.
“No, Yeonju is me, so why do you keep reporting to him?”
“is that so?”
“No, it is. Still, my name is Yeonju…”
“Sorry. This old man must be senile.”
“joy! What is senility? He probably thinks he’s more suited to a lynx than I am.”
“It is not.”
“Then what is it?”
“It’s just… because he’s the god of assassins.”
“Who, other than the Shinigami, would dare to call himself the god of assassins? Even though he’s retired, isn’t this old man an assassin too? Because of that, I keep looking for him more and more.”
Hong Ye-seol snorted. But it wasn’t a bad look.
Because her thoughts were similar to Salno’s.
Pyowol was considered a competitor before, but not now.
I was clearly aware of the gap between him and myself, and I learned that putting the symbol on top of myself was never something that hurt my pride. That’s why he wasn’t too offended when Salno put Pyowol above him.
Salno whispered to Hong Ye-seol in a low voice.
“We are now seeing a great journey that will never happen again in Ganghosa.”
“What a great journey?”
“What would be great if not the greatness of a journey in which all saluns are subordinated to one single person?”
“The birth of a true sage. It is an infinite honor to be part of that glorious journey.”
