Reaper of the Drifting Moon Chapter 519
The two of them broke through the flowing river and climbed onto the Unma River Line.
It was Pyowol and Hong Ye-seol.
“You worked hard.”
Salno, who was waiting in advance, handed Hong Ye-seol a towel.
Hong Ye-seol took a towel and dried her wet hair.
“Thank you. Did your trip go well?”
“What do you think?”
“It went well, so you must have come back here.”
“that’s right. The Danju of Baekwoldan swore allegiance to that person.”
Salno shook his head as if he knew that.
Hong Ye-seol said.
“Two salmuns have already sworn allegiance to him.”
“It will accelerate further in the future. There is no place among the slaughterhouses gathered in Poyang Lake that has the power to rebel against him.”
“I think so.”
Hong Ye-seol shook his head.
Pyowol’s martial arts skills were best known to her. However, subduing martial arts and salmun was a different matter.
She was well aware of how proud the assassins were, having been involved in the murder herself.
It was never easy to truly subdue them.
Assassins are like springs, and the stronger they are pressed, the more they rebel. However, the moon suppressed them with such a powerful force that they could not dare to resist.
I realized it when I saw the moon.
This means that backlash is only possible when the gap is not that large. If the gap is too great, they don’t even dare to protest.
That was what Pyowol showed.
As a result, Sichang Lee’s heart was broken and he eventually swore allegiance.
Lee Si-chang was a man with a strong will not to give in to Baek Guryun, but in the end he knelt in front of Pyo-wol.
Other salmun owners did not have as strong a will as Lee Si-chang. At least that’s what Salno and Baek Guryun figured out.
It would be easier to subdue if it was the martial arts and presence of Pyowol.
Steam rose from Pyowol’s body.
It evaporates all the water from the body through the inner air.
The pyowol quickly became dry without a drop of moisture.
he said, looking around the deck.
“What about the children?”
“I am resting in the cabin. Shall I call you?”
“No, that’s okay.”
“Are you injured anywhere?”
“Well, there’s no way that the Most High can be beaten by someone like Shi-Chang Lee.”
“Isn’t it the body that will become the keeper of the house? So, you should call it Jijon.”
“Will you swear allegiance to me too?”
“There is nothing you can’t do. Shall we do it right now?”
“She’s glaring at me like that, is that okay?”
At Pyowol’s words, Salno turned his head and looked at Hong Ye-seol.
Just like he said, Hong Ye-seol was glaring at Salno with his eyes wide open.
“Even if you act like that on the outside, you’ll like it on the inside.”
“It’s not a bowl of lotus liquor.”
“Can I say that?”
“Because it is true.”
Hong Ye-seol’s face turned red.
It looked like he was going to have a seizure any minute, but surprisingly, he seemed to be enduring it with his teeth clenched.
Salno smiled and continued.
“Perhaps, if you look at the killing method alone, there will be very few people who will be defeated by Ryunju in Baekguiryeon. However, the strength of an individual and the ability to lead a huge organization are two different things. The former Ryeonju showed excellent skills in running an organization called Baek Gwi-ryun, even though he was not a martial artist. Of course, the wrong choice caused chaos in the world, but in any case, there was no one better than him to understand and lead the huge organization called Baek Guryun. To the point where even those who were dissatisfied with him chose to remain silent.”
“Was that enough?”
“yes! It was his ability that made Baek Gwi-ryun grow this much. However, as I focused only on the operation of Baek Guryun, I neglected my own training. Because of that, he was killed by the new ruler.”
“He probably didn’t expect that someone from Baek Guryun would dare to stand against his authority. So you must have neglected martial arts.”
Salno made an expression of sincere admiration.
It was a fact that anyone could know if you think about it for a bit, but by saying this, you are trying to win Pyowol’s favor.
“The new master has definitely reached a great height as an assassin. So, although he was able to kill the full-time lord, his ability to operate the hundred guinea pigs is showing the bottom. Maybe she feels it to some extent. It means that he is not a gamnyang enough to run Baek Guryun. That’s why they are following the back of Pyo Daehyeop behind the management of Baek Guryun.”
“That’s too much! Who do you think follows you around?”
Hong Ye-seol, who hadn’t heard it, screamed out loud. But Salno didn’t care and continued talking.
“Many people turn away when faced with a situation they cannot handle. Like the new rookie who is screaming over there.”
“I want Pyo Dae-hyeop, or the highest, to think about taking on the role of the Baek Gwi-ryeon’s yeonju. If you leave Baek Guryun in the care of the new Lord Ryeon, he will surely eat it or escape to live alone someday. It would be better for Baek Guryun to organize it before that.”
“Was the position of Baek Guryunju so worthless? Enough to pass it on to someone else.”
“It is important that we continue to do so. And in my experience, going against the bandwagon isn’t very smart. As times change, organizations must change too. Only then can we survive and not be weeded out.”
“Didn’t you decide to become the supreme commander anyway? Rather than maintaining a relationship with Baek Gwi-ryun in an awkward way, use your hands and feet. That would be good for the Supreme as well.”
Salno poured out his words as if he was determined.
Pyowol’s gaze turned to Hong Ye-seol.
“What do you think?”
“I don’t think he was that wrong.”
“I mean you agree.”
Hong Ye-seol answered meekly.
She didn’t vote, but she regretted killing her predecessor. Because there were too many things to worry about.
The most troublesome thing was the ten-year-old.
I know because she was also ten-year-old.
How strong are their egos?
They had a reluctance to serve Hong Ye-seol, who had been the same ten-year-old until recently, as their master.
It is not openly disobeying orders, but it is to express dissatisfaction through various channels.
Like an assassin, he was rejecting Hong Ye-seol in a shady and subtle way.
Because of that, Hong Ye-seol was having a headache these days.
Salno said he had to completely redefine his relationship with them somehow, but it couldn’t be that easy.
It was better when I was ten years old.
Going around with Pyowol made me miss the old days.
At that time, I didn’t have the heavy pressure and responsibility like now.
Hong Ye-seol glanced at Pyo-wol.
Pyo-wol was standing there, staring at the Yangtze River.
I didn’t know what he was thinking.
Neither Hong Ye-seol nor Salno interfered with his thoughts.
The moon’s silence grew longer.
The atmosphere became heavy as well.
As Do Yeon-san and Eun-yo approached, they were startled by the heavy air and stopped moving.
They didn’t know what was going on, but they all felt that they shouldn’t intervene now.
Pyowol, who had been silent for a long time, finally opened his mouth.
“What do I have to do to become a Baekgwiryunju?”
“All you have to do is subdue the current yeonju with force.”
“Is that okay?”
“yes! The current yeonju also became a yeonju like that. Basically, it is a principle that the owner of the White Ghost is the strongest.”
“I’m not a member of the Baek Guryun?”
“Are you not a Shinigami? In the world of Assassins nothing precedes that arc. At least in the current stronghold.”
He was the only man in the current Gangho who was allowed to have a nickname with ‘God’ in it.
It wasn’t just a few people calling it that way, but all the warriors in Gangho were calling it that way.
At least, it meant that all strong people acknowledged that his ability as an assassin had risen to the level of a god.
In particular, the weight given to the assassins of Salmun by the nickname Death God was so enormous that it could not be expressed in words.
Pyo-wol looked at Hong Ye-seol.
“I will take over the position of head of the Baek Guryun.”
“I can’t just hand it over. you know?”
There was a clear distinction between public and private life.
Just as Hong Ye-seol won by force, Pyowol had to be won by force from her. Otherwise, the assassins of Baek Guryun will not recognize him.
“If you go a little further, there will be a small marina. It will take about half an hour to unload and load there.”
Pyowol shook his head.
In an instant, Hong Ye-seol’s expression turned cold.
“Are you sure? I will do my best. If you don’t want to be embarrassed, you should too.”
“after! Then see you later. Because I have to prepare too.”
It was a fight with Pyowol, no one else.
I’ve already collided with Pyowol several times, but I’ve never had a serious fight.
I just stimulated in the right line and moderated it.
It was different now.
He tried hard to put on a calm expression, but fighting spirit was seething in his heart.
Hong Ye-seol went into her cabin to get ready.
As Salno said, the dock appeared after a while.
The moment the Unmadogangseon anchored, Pyowol, Hongyeseol, and Salno fell.
I wanted to follow Doyeonsan Mountain, but I couldn’t because the atmosphere was so serious.
No matter how much they said they had a close personal relationship with Pyo-wol, they could not intervene in Baek Gwi-ryeon’s affairs.
Nam Shin-woo looked at the reed field where Pyo-wol and Hong Ye-seol disappeared with a worried expression.
Do Yeon-san put her arm around Shin-woo Nam’s shoulder and said.
“It will be fine.”
“No one will get hurt, right?”
“Nothing to worry about. We just need to trust him. Just like it always has been.”
Nam Shin-woo nodded at Do Yeon-san’s confident words.
Eun-yo looked at the vast reed field in the distance with deeply sunken eyes.
The reeds grew so high that the people inside could not be seen.
When the wind blew, the reed fields rippled like waves.
Despite the dazzling spectacle, Eun-yo could not purely admire it.
It’s because I know what a bloody fight is going on behind that beautiful scenery.
Pyo-wol and Hong Ye-seol were both assassins at the top of the river.
They were venomous servants who had been trained not to groan even when their bodies were seriously injured.
Even when an arm is cut off, they won’t scream.
From the moment they grabbed the sword, they were forced to engage in a silent war and were raised that way.
There must be a fierce fight going on in the reed field where nothing can be heard except the sound of the wind.
It seemed to Eun-yo’s ears that the sound of swords clashing with swords was mixed with the sound of the wind.
At some point, the wind that had been blowing like crazy and the shaking of the reeds that had been rolling like waves stopped.
Eun-yo had a hunch.
that everything is over
No matter how the result came out, the confrontation between the two people was put to an end.
Eun-yo jumped off the Unmado river ship and ran into the reed field.
“Go with me.”
Do Yeon-san and Nam Shin-woo were surprised and followed her.
The three of them made their way through the reeds to the deep end.
A huge clearing had been created inside the reed field. There they looked.
Hong Ye-seol and Salno bowed their heads deeply.
Behind them, all the members of the Black Slaughter Corps were kneeling on one knee.
Their examples were all directed towards a man.
To Pyowol, a man standing alone in the middle of a field of reeds.
“Meet the Most High.”
The voice of the Heuksaldae echoed through the reed field.
