Reaper of the Drifting Moon Chapter 639
Pyowol looks at Namgungseol.
“All-out assault? Are you saying there are forces besides the Federation of Unions to join?”
“There is a possibility that the Shaolin Temple, who lost the transport ambassador thousands of times after losing Guangmumun Houju, will also join. Yongcheongok and the shaman are too far away and the damage is so great that it would be difficult to bring them in. Did they bring in the swordsman by any chance?”
For a moment, Namgungseol widened his eyes.
It was because he didn’t know that Pyowol would notice that she held hands with Geomjon.
She put a lot of effort into recruiting Geomzon.
Namgung Yu-gum and Lee Chung also lost their lives in Jang Cheonhwa. Not only that, but many absolute adherents were defeated by him.
Now there are only a few absolute adherents left.
One of them was swordsman Han Yuchun.
Namgungseol tried to use Han Yuchun to keep Jang Cheonhwa in check.
I can’t guarantee victory, but I thought that at least I wouldn’t be pushed helplessly.
Namgungseol couldn’t believe it.
As if the moon had gone in and out of him, he was seeing right through him.
I knew that Pyo-wol was smart, but I even felt a sense of fear when I figured out the situation that I didn’t say.
Namgungseol couldn’t answer and bit his lip. Then, Lee Geom-han spoke instead.
“Right! Thousands of times Shaolin Temple and several sects joined hands. Sword Master was also concerned about Kang-ho’s situation, so he decided to join us.”
“You prepared a lot in a short amount of time. I thought he died because he was defeated and there was no news, but it must have been because he was busy moving underwater.”
“The hardships are over for the New Year.”
Lee Geom-han sighed with an emaciated face.
In the past, he was very confident and overflowing with composure. But now there was no sign of that on his face.
It wasn’t enough that his father, Lee Chung, died, and even his strong foundation, the Union Association, collapsed.
At least, if Namgungseol hadn’t escaped, he wouldn’t have been able to face Pyowol alive like this.
He felt helpless for the first time in his life.
His heart was greatly broken by the fact that he had great power but could not do anything.
Because of that, I couldn’t do anything for a couple of months after I escaped the federation.
When he was lethargic, the one who moved was Namgung Seol.
He moved his younger brother, Namgungwol, and older brother, Namgungjin, and contacted Shaolin Temple and Geomson to ask for their cooperation.
It was Namgungseol who overcame the shock of defeat and managed the situation.
At that, Lee Geom-han felt a bit ashamed.
Namgungseol also lost his father. But instead of getting frustrated, she got up right away and tried to turn things around somehow. Namgungseol’s appearance made him come to his senses.
I was ready to recapture Lake Poyang, but I still felt that it was not enough.
I don’t know if Zhang Chun-hwa hadn’t intervened, but once he was in Poyang Lake, he had to be prepared for emergencies.
So I came to Pyowol.
Namgung-wol forced his mouth open to find out about the unknown, and the three of them came to find him.
Lee Geum-han said.
“If Geumcheonhoe reigns like this, no one will be able to restore the balance of power. Leaning too far to one side will cause problems. So you help me to balance.”
“Isn’t there some responsibility on your side as well?”
Lee Geom-han’s gaze turned to Hong Ye-seol, who was next to Pyo-wol.
For a moment, Hong Ye-seol bit his lip.
It is because she killed Noh Kang-hyeon, a student of seven hyeon (七賢書生), and the great war broke out.
She was simply commissioned and carried out, but that did not free her from responsibility.
Because of that, Hong Ye-seol had a kind of debt consciousness.
He was a grim reaper with no blood or tears for the assassination target, but he wasn’t so rude that he didn’t mind anything even after driving the entire gang into chaos.
Lee Geomhan secretly let out a sigh.
Because I had no intention of doing this in the first place.
It was not his way to take advantage of others’ weaknesses and drive them in this way.
But because of the situation, I couldn’t help it.
His mind was very impoverished.
After his father died, the Union Association collapsed.
As the two pillars that supported him disappeared, cracks appeared in his strong heart.
Namgungseol looked at Lee Geomhan with a sad expression for a moment.
She also didn’t want to push Lee Geom-han like this.
No matter how strong he was, Lee Geom-han was still a person with feelings.
Losing a father required time to process emotions and afford to rise above the shock of defeat.
However, Lee Geom-han was not an ordinary person.
He was a man destined for a hero.
I couldn’t give such a person the same amount of time as a normal person.
Even if it was harsh, I had to push harder.
Lee Geomhan spoke again.
“Help me. I need your help.”
In an instant, Lee Geum-han’s expression hardened.
he asked in an angry voice.
“I have a separate request.”
“request? What request do you mean?”
“There is only one request for the assassin. to kill someone.”
Lee Geom-han sighed involuntarily at Pyo-wol’s nonchalant reply.
In this situation, Pyo-wol, who received the murder request, was pitiful and repulsive.
Even though it is an assassin to continue his life by killing, he had to cover the time.
In today’s chaotic world, if an assassin like Pyowol took a personal request and committed an assassination, I couldn’t imagine how far the aftermath would go.
If an assassin like Pyowol had to move directly, it was clear that he was an enormous giant.
“Who is the target?”
“Have you ever seen an assassin reveal a murder target?”
“Are you unconscious?”
“Awareness of your position, awareness of responsibility. Those with strong arms should think carefully about their powers and the impact they have on the world. Only then will it not have a bad influence on the world.”
“Looking at you, I think I can understand why the Union Association lost even in an overwhelmingly advantageous situation.”
Lee Geom-han, who was preaching in the middle of his sermon, was shocked and closed his lips.
He glared at the moon with his eyes wide open.
Pyo-wol’s expression did not change even in his lively eyes.
At that moment, Namgungseol sighed and held Lee Geomhan’s hand.
It meant taking care of yourself.
Only then did Geomhan Lee realize his mistake and grit his teeth.
His face was red with shame and anger.
He had a lot to say, but he realized too late that talking about it would only hurt him.
Instead of Lee Geomhan, Namgungseol said.
“I don’t know who the request came from, but can’t we put it off for a while? If only you and your subordinates help, we will be able to recapture Lake Poyang with ease.”
“It’s a surprise that can’t be postponed.”
“Can you tell me who the client is? I will convince you.”
“Both of them make it too easy to talk about breaking the assassin taboo.”
No matter how much an assassin is a job that is looked down upon, there are still implicit rules that must be followed.
One of them was exposing the identity of the client and revealing the target of the murder.
Now Geomhan Lee and Seol Namgung were telling them to break both taboos.
If I had a little more understanding of the leaps and bounds or assassins, I would never have said such a thing.
Namgungseol also realized this belatedly after seeing Pyowol’s expression.
‘phew! I made a mistake because I was in a hurry. Even though I knew what kind of person he was, I approached him this way.’
Pyowol was never an easy opponent.
He had an excellent brain and heart as well as a mighty martial arts. It was evident from his movements.
Pyo-wol had fallen into situations many times from which he could not get out with simple force alone. Each time, he showed his outstanding heart to the fullest and overcame the impasse.
It was hard to believe that I was comfortable with knowing that fact.
“sorry. I made a mistake. I won’t force you any more. Instead, feel free to join our side if you change your mind. I will leave the door open for you.”
Namgungseol stood up from his seat without regret.
Lee Geomhan also stood up with a firm expression.
“I must go now. Whether you join us or not, we will attack the Golden Temple. I hope you make a good decision.”
After Lee Geom-han took possession of Pyo-wol, he went outside, followed by Namgung Seol.
Finally, Namgungwol stood up from his seat.
He said to Pyowol before going out.
“sorry. Those two were so impatient that I had no time to stop them.”
“When is the date set for the general offensive?”
“Five days later.”
“Aren’t you in too much of a hurry?”
“I judged that the longer the delay, the stronger the defense of the Geumcheonhoe will be. All troops are already secretly moving to Lake Poyang. There is no going back now.”
“I wish you no luck.”
“thank you. I couldn’t repay all the favors I received, and I’m sorry that I have to return to the Union Association like this.”
“it’s okay! Take good care of your life.”
“It should be. Then I’ll see you again on a good day later. Until then, get along.”
After Namgungwol took possession of it, he went outside.
“An all-out offensive.”
Hong Ye-seol and Hong Yu-sin let out a silent voice at the same time.
It was such a big shock.
In particular, Hong Yu-shin was shocked.
“I thought I would prepare for at least half a year more. Nam Gung Xue always exceeds Hao Mun’s expectations.”
“That means you’re in a hurry too.”
“But are you really not going to help them?”
“Whether you like it or not, you have no choice but to intervene. Because I have already received a request.”
“Then why did you say that?”
“I didn’t want Namgungseol to move the way he wanted.”
Hong Yushin shook his head.
Namgung Seol was the one who organized and moved all of this.
Of course, it was possible because of the existence of Lee Geom-han, but it was clear that she played the role of the brain.
Hong Ye-seol asked Pyo-wol.
“You seem to be very concerned about Namgungseol, right?”
“Namgungseol is not just a bookmaker. Not only are they smart, but they are also ambitious. She must have envisioned how to reorganize her forces after winning the war. Will she really let us go blind? If we act together, I’m sure he’ll figure out our loopholes and think about how to dispose of them. That’s why I can’t go with her.”
“Then I’d rather kill them…”
“In that case, it would be more difficult to unite the Union Association and other sects. Like it or not, it’s clear that she has a great brain and control.”
“It’s a joke.”
“It would be better if it was a simple trick. If left alone, she will always become a heartache.”
“Certainly, there are parts that women don’t want to see.”
Hong Ye-seol shook his head.
Looking into Namgungseol’s eyes, I could see that he had huge ambitions.
Its ambition was so great that it made the viewer feel queasy.
Being Lee Geom-han, he had to bear the rumors of Namgung, but if it was someone else, she would have already been eaten by her ambitions.
Looking at the means of discovering the existence of the nameless chief through Namgungwol, as well as the fact that she came all the way to this place, breaking down her lofty pride, I could see how great she was.
Pyowol looked at Hong Yushin.
“Can you grasp the movements of the munpa who joined hands with the Union Reunion?”
“If you don’t know, you don’t know, but it’s not a job to figure out what’s going on.”
“Keep track of their movements. At the same time, the response of the Geumcheonhoe.”
“We have to figure out how they will respond.”
“If you do, Pyo Daehyeop thinks that Geumcheonhoe will detect the movements of Eunryeonhoe and other clans in advance?”
“They are the ones who rule the world. You must have already laid eyes and ears everywhere. Move completely avoiding their eyes? I’d say it’s impossible.”
“Sure… I guess. I see.”
Hong Yushin agreed.
Pyo-wol looked at Hong Ye-seol.
“Prepare all assassins.”
It was for this day that the assassins had been severely trained over the past few months.
‘I’ll carry out your request from now on.’
