Reaper of the Drifting Moon Chapter 546
Rumors about Lee Geom-han were spreading beyond Poyang Lake and all over Gangho.
Every day, Lee Geom-han asked the warriors of the Geumcheonhoe to fight. The result was a winning streak.
The best equipment and masters within the Geumcheonhoe knelt before Geomhan Lee.
Until now, the existence of Lee Geom-han was highly regarded as a counter-horse to Jang Moo-geuk.
He was so crazy about Dao that he earned the nickname Do-gwang, but he rarely showed his skills in front of people.
People tended not to believe what they did not see with their own eyes. It was the same in the case of Lee Geum-han. So, implicitly, people thought that Lee Geomhan might have been overrated.
However, his actions at Lake Poyang were enough to dispel people’s doubts.
It felt like he was the only one fighting against the Geumcheonhoe now that the Poyangho River Warfare had reached a lull.
People were enthusiastic about Lee Geom-han’s move.
It was a picture of a hero who had endured so far, drawing the sword of justice because he could not see the great tribulation of the river.
The dramatic appearance of an unexpected hero made people cheer.
“Who are you going to deal with this time?”
“It’s also Gwangmumun. Is the one and only heir such a great thief?”
“Isn’t this enough to be the first pilgrim in the world?”
People talked about Lee Geom-han whenever there were more than two of them.
Pyowol muttered as he looked around the street.
“It feels like watching a well-organized miscellaneous drama. After all, it must be Namgungseol’s work, right?”
Under normal circumstances, no matter how great an individual’s inaction or unconventional move, he would not be able to rise to such a high level of attention.
It was possible only if someone intentionally reproduced and spread the topic.
Pyo-wol thought that Namgung-seol was the main agent.
He had the ability to do so, and above all, he was full of will.
She was ready to jump in at any cost for Lee Geom-han.
Lee Geom-han’s move was also unconventional, but Namgung-seol’s ability to help him was also great.
People who don’t know their relationship will never know about this unusual situation.
“If there had been a violent eruption, I would have liked it because it was fun.”
After the breakup, there was no news of how Sogyeoksan was doing.
Although they had not contacted him once, Pyo-wol thought that So Gyeok-san was doing well and hoped that he would.
Pyowol suddenly raised his head and looked around.
A familiar landscape unfolded before my eyes.
Huge mansions were lined up in rows.
Even at a glance, it was a town far away from the place where ordinary grassroots live.
It was a street where high-ranking officials and influential people gathered.
Among them, a huge manor stood out.
It was the name of the manor written on the board.
It was time for Pyowol, who had been looking at Haerojang for a while, to turn back.
“You’ve come this far, why are you just leaving?”
A muffled old woman’s voice was heard.
Pyo-wol turned around and saw an old woman standing with a cane.
The old woman with a bent back was looking at Pyowol with eyes dripping with ooze.
The old woman struggled to approach Pyowol.
“Pyo Daehyeop, right?”
“As expected, my eyes were not mistaken. I thought it was long because I was wearing a hat. Hee hee!”
The old woman looked at the moon and laughed.
Pyo-wol said as he took off the hat he was wearing on his head.
“How did you find out?”
“Did you tell me? I like my keen eye.”
“Awesome. At that age…”
“Hehe! Actually, I was lucky. Now my eyes are blurry and I can’t see very well. I just filmed it because it felt the same.”
The old woman was Roh Tae-tae, the owner of Haerojang.
Roh Tae-tae couldn’t stop laughing, perhaps because he was happy to meet Pyo-wol by chance. Then, breathing stopped and he coughed.
Pyowol hurriedly helped Roh Tae-tae.
Roh Tae-tae coughed as if he would run out of breath at any moment. Pyo-wol calmed her down by injecting a little energy into her Myeongmun-hyeol.
“are you okay?”
“Thank you! I owe you again.”
“Why did you come out alone?”
“I came out alone because it was in front of my house.”
“Can you help me?”
At Noh Tae-tae’s words, Pyo-wol nodded.
Pyo-wol helped Roh Tae-tae and went to Haerojang.
As soon as I entered the sea route, the commander-in-chief hurriedly came running. He was surprised by Roh Tae-tae’s pale complexion.
“Are you okay?”
“Hee hee! I’m fine. Here, Pyo Daehyeop took care of me.”
It was only then that the commander-in-chief recognized Pyowol and was startled. However, he soon calmed down and greeted him politely.
“Thank you for taking care of Roh Tae-tae.”
“I don’t think your health has gotten much worse than before.”
“yes! You’ve lost a lot of energy lately. He needs care, but he keeps insisting on going for walks alone.”
It was Roh Tae-tae, who was over a hundred years old.
It was such an age that it wouldn’t be strange if he died at any time. However, I managed my health well for my age, so I was quite correct.
The moment Roh Tae-tae lost his energy was just before the Great War broke out, right after his great-grandson Ju Seol-pung joined the Union Association.
From then on, his energy rapidly declined, making everyone at the top of the Jewon worry.
The biggest problem is that Noh Tae-tae refuses to take care of people.
Pyowol looked at Noh Tae-tae.
‘Am I preparing for death alone?’
Among those who were close to death, there was a person who pushed the people around him.
It is to cut off affection in advance so that those left behind feel less sorrow.
Perhaps Roh Tae-tae was preparing for his own death with such an intuition.
Come to think of it, Roh Tae-tae’s eyes were full of white dust.
The gun you saw when you met before is no longer felt.
Roh Tae-tae smiled and said, probably feeling Pyo-wol’s gaze.
“I’m fine, but they say they’re making a fuss. No need to worry. Because I am so healthy.”
“I guess so.”
“Now that we’ve met before, why don’t we have a cup of tea?”
“Hee hee! Come here. Even if it wasn’t, there was no one to drink tea with, so it was lonely.”
Roh Tae-tae caught the pyowol and led him to the patronage.
The tactile feel of the hand that was holding it was rough. But the warmth was still there.
Roh Tae-tae, who finally arrived at the patronage, started brewing tea with a happy expression.
After hearing the rattling sound for a while, Noh Tae-tae put the teacup in front of Pyo-wol.
Pyowol raised the teacup and brought it to his lips.
The fragrant smell stimulated the sense of smell.
“It’s a nice car.”
“To be honest, I can’t even taste the food anymore because my sense of taste is gone. It’s the only one I can taste the tea.”
“A man like that is great for us.”
“is it? I am glad that the messenger of the world said so.”
Noh Tae-tae smiled broadly.
All of his teeth were lost, and only his gums were visible. Still, it didn’t look ugly.
Pyowol took a sip of the tea and put the glass down.
“What about the blizzard?”
“Hee hee! I haven’t seen him since.”
“Would you like to see it?”
“I miss you a lot. Still, among my great-grandsons, there is no child as affectionate as that child.”
“Don’t you regret sending it out like that?”
“Is it not possible? It would be nice if you supported that child, but if something goes wrong, everything at the top of the jewon will collapse. this is the best It is correct that this side organizes the ledger so that it can go the way I want.”
Noah Tae-tae smiled.
It was still warm, but it was a smile that somehow seemed lonely.
She and the Jewon Sangdan completely cut ties with Ju Seol-pung.
If the Eunnyeonhoe, which Ju Seol-pung belongs to, becomes the winner of the Great War, their relationship will be restored. However, if Eunryeonhoe loses and Geumcheonhoe wins, they will live as strangers forever.
Blood relatives could criticize it for being too cold-hearted, but it was something both sides agreed on.
Roh Tae-tae wanted to protect the jewon top, and Ju Seol-pung agreed with his great-grandmother’s idea.
Noh Tae-tae looked up at the sky and said.
“The top of the jewon is nothing more than shackles, not wings for that child. What could be more pitiful than a person with great aspirations trapped in such a narrow cage and unable to flap his wings?”
“So are you satisfied?”
“What can I do to be content and sleep? Just hearing that it flaps its wings on its own is enough for me.”
There was still a small smile on Noah’s lips.
Pyowol held up the teacup without a word.
Although it cooled down a bit, the tea was still delicious.
Pyowol suddenly spoke to her.
“If you have any leftover tea leaves, give them some.”
“Do you like it?”
“Juseolpung was also my favorite tea. I will bring it to you.”
Roh Tae-tae’s eyebrows trembled at Pyo-wol’s unexpected reply.
Pyowol was still drinking tea with a blunt expression.
A bright smile appeared on Noh Tae-tae’s lips as he watched the scene.
“Thank you for doing so. Please wait a bit.”
It was Roh Tae-tae and the Jewon Sang-dan, who did not contact Ju Seol-pung at all because they were conscious of Geumcheonhoe’s gaze.
The main snow wind also didn’t even come close to the top of the temple.
Even though they are together by Poyang Lake, they act as if they are strangers. Because of that, I had to hold back even if there was something I wanted to hand over. However, the story is different if the pewol is caught in the middle.
Pyowol’s status in Gangho was truly great.
Not only did he rise to the highest peak as an assassin, but he did not belong anywhere in the political world.
Depending on which side he takes, the direction of the game will be different.
The moon was clearly not taking either side.
If you carelessly touch the sign and he raises the other side, the problem becomes serious.
Because of that, both factions were still refraining from hasty approaches to Pyowol.
In a way, Pyowol was the safest and most reliable person in the world.
Roh Tae-tae wrapped the tea leaves and several items in a cloth to send to Ju Seol-pung. Roh Tae-tae’s warmth seemed to be contained in the crudely tied cloth knot.
Roh Tae-tae handed Pyo-wol a wrapping cloth.
“Do you have anything else to say?”
“It’s just… you’re doing great. Just tell me that.”
Pyowol answered while accepting the wrapping cloth.
Roh Tae-tae looked at Pyo-wol with a happy expression and said as if he had suddenly remembered it.
“really! Do you need anything?”
“Father said that useful items came into the report. Go see it, though?”
“it’s okay! I have no desire to be rewarded with something like this.”
“If you need any help from the Bone Merchant, let me know. Because the door is always wide open to Pyo Dae-hyeop.”
“I’ll come back later.”
“Hee hee! I’ll wait.”
Roh Tae-tae smiled, exposing his missing teeth.
Pyo-wol looked at the scene quietly and came out.
As soon as he came out, Pyo-wol put on the hat attached to his bloody wind.
In Pyo-wol’s hand, which had left the seaport, he was holding a small bundle.
The place Pyo-wol headed was where the Union Reunion was located.
Like the Geumcheonhoe, the Eunryeonhoe also used a large manor as their base.
The huge manor was reborn as a fortress through repeated extensions.
There has never been a case in which two powers faced each other and faced each other across a huge lake.
Even though it was late in the evening, quite a lot of people were coming and going on the street where the union association was based.
Most of the people here were uninhabited.
There were soldiers who belonged to the Union Association, and there were those who were waiting to enter the Union Association.
Among them, there were also cadres to monitor the movement of the Union Association.
So many people were staying on the same street, hiding their respective desires.
Pyo-wol went into a large inn in front of the main entrance of the Union Association.
As he took his seat by the window overlooking Union Hall, Jeom So-yi came running.
“welcome. Would you like to order a meal?”
“Bring me something simple.”
“Would it be stir-fried pork and rice?”
“okay! And run an errand for you.”
“Are you running errands?”
Jeom Soi looked at him with a puzzled expression.
Pyowol said to him.
“There must be a person named Ju Seol-pung in the union association. Tell him that he has a visitor.”
“Why do you do that to me?”
“Because you are Haomundo.”
Jeom So-yi’s eyes twitched. This is because Pyo-wol recognized his identity that no one else knew.
“My name is Pyowol.”
“ah! Please wait a little bit. I will tell you soon.”
Just the name Pyowol explained everything.
Jeom So-yi quickly ran outside, and Pyo-wol, who was left alone, looked at the union association.
