Chapter 296 00296 Branch Point
Seven days ago.
The forest at night was quiet and dark. Darkness like darkness that will consume everything. The moon in the sky was sprinkling bright light, but dense trees and dense green bushes were blocking the light shining through the forest.
At that time, the sound of dry leaves and the sound of treading on black fire broke the calm of the forest. The source of the sound was a hill somewhere in the forest. And surprisingly, there was a man carefully climbing up the hill.
Careful climbing up the hill stops momentarily. Then the sound subsided quickly. The man glances around for about 10 seconds, then starts climbing up the hill again.
There was a strange tension in a man’s son-in-law. Several cries, like the sound of worms, birds, and so on, sometimes flowed into his ears. And by the time the cold wind passes the hill, the man is able to climb to the top of the hill.
T ra ns la ted b y ｊp m tl .ｃoｍ A forest where the veil of darkness settles. Even though it was so dark that I could not discern an inch in front of it, the movements of the man were showing the same movement with open vision. Soon, he settles in the middle of the hill, and opens his eyes wide to look around.
And I wondered if a light pumpkin light on the eyes of a man was young, and I fixed my gaze in one direction at the same speed as lightning. Immediately, he looked away for a while as if he were observing something, and frowned.
There was a faint glow rising from the man’s gaze. A strange sight was unfolded around the light that did not match the quiet forest. Three women were strung up naked on the branches of the tall tree. And more likely, a group of boats were giggling and making fun of the tree.
The man who was looking at it quietly muttered with a voice that was filled with pity.
“Crazy bastards. Can’t tell the time from the place. ”
“You understand. It’s been seven days since we’ve waited here. You can skip all the fun. ”
“You’re the one I felt earlier. ”
“Heehee. Did you get caught? ” Tr a ns l ated b y jp ｍ tl .co ｍ
It was a sudden voice, but the man boldly turns his head. Wherever he looked, there was a woman in tights who was attached to her body. When the man came, the woman shrugged her shoulders and pouted her lips.
Without saying a word, the woman who approached the man soon opened her mouth, crouching on the floor.
“Huyu. when is the next time you move? ”
“Two days later. We will leave the uncharted area at that time. ”
“So on the second day, you’re going into the Dark Forest? ”
“I just got a call from headquarters. They say they have finally entered the swamp of death. ”
The man nods and nods. And the woman looked very thoughtful, and she said, « Well, I guess it’s freezing time.” I muttered. The woman who had been observing the man for a moment was soon lying facedown on the ground.
“But you know, they’re pretty fast, aren’t they? It’s been two months since you left the Western continent. But if it’s already a swamp of death…. ”
“The passageway between North and West has already been pioneered. But you’ll have to be careful when you get out of the swamp of death. Increases the likelihood of being noticed by users. ”
“Yes, that’s why we’re here. ”
“That’s three or four days’ difference. Anyway, for the time being, just ignore it. We just have to do what we do best. ”
The man gives you a blunt response if you feel any discomfort. It was quiet for a while.
The gaze of the man was still caught in the sight of the crowd harassing women, and the woman was lying on her back, looking up at the sky. They remained silent for a long time. And the silence that followed was broken by the woman who first broke the word.
“You know, Hyun. Can we succeed…? ”
“Assuming the raid works, we can succeed. ” T ransla ted b y jp mt l .c o m
“It’s barely more than 2,000. Even in a pioneering city…. ”
“We’re not all here yet. Until the end of the day, the number of people will continue to gather, and there will be hundreds of people responding inside. Above all, we are the reverse warriors, one of us crossing the frontier. Even if there are twice or three times as many cities, you can win. ”
His voice contained confidence. In response, the woman kills the sound and laughs, “Yes, if the raid succeeds.” I began to feel even more amazed.
The woman raises her waist and jumps to her feet, making sure she smiles. Then he wrapped his arms around the neck of the man with an elastic gesture and whispered in his ear.
“I hope that day comes soon. A day to avenge them. ”
“Just a little longer. Don’t worry. Trust me. ”
“Hehe. I’m trustworthy. Yes, sir! I’ll wait quietly according to the commander! ”
“ ……. ”
The woman speaks in an eerie voice and leaps down the hill, laughing bitterly. The man shrugged her indifferently and burst his smile. Then I took a long sigh and began to pay attention to the place I was looking at earlier.
So, the night in the forest went deep.
“Kim Soo-hyun? ”
“Long time… It’s not.”
As you enter the Summoning Room, you always see Seraph sitting on the altar. It seems quite surprising that I visited myself twice in a row, raising the end sound strangely. Before, I used to come here once every three months, rather than once a month, so I was curious.
Tr a n slated b y jp m tl .coｍ Seraph quickly recovers his expression and speaks in a quiet voice.
“Again…. Are you here?”
“Yes. I have a question. Then why are you so surprised? ”
“I didn’t page you separately, but I was surprised to see you. ”
“You didn’t page me recently. ”
I sat down to face Seraph, roughly lending a hand. And I decided to take out the beginning of the year and go straight into the business.
“Anyway, I need to ask you about compassion. ”
“Yes, tell me. We’re happy to answer your questions. ”
“Well…. How do I say this? Yeah, in a nutshell. For example, suppose there is one user cursed by the Antichrist. Can we use the curse of that user as a force of peace? ”
“It’s possible. »
Immediately without hesitation. But that’s what I was so confused about. What I wanted was a little more detail. I read my mind like that, and Seraph immediately began to explain further.
“The Banshee Curse is a very powerful high rank curse. You can’t fight against chaotic magical, lucky, or anti-magical powers. But it’s not worth it. I’ll also briefly tell you, there’s a word for roughness. Comparison between the temperament of peace and the curse of antichrism is regrettable. ”
“Very well. So you’re saying that compassion is not for combat, but for healing? ”
“That’s not very wrong. However, there are limits to the use of compassion for treatment. ”
“ ……. ”
Just now, what Seraph said was what I really wanted to know. You’ve never used it for anything other than combat. We need to be vigilant so we don’t disrupt our future use. Tra n slated by Jpｍ tl.ｃo ｍ
“Depending on how you use them, they can be used for combat or for healing. It’s a little vague. If you think of it as a therapeutic use, it’s a simple purification. It doesn’t mean complete healing. For example, if the user Kim Soo-hyun has cured the user you mentioned earlier, the curse of antiquity can be definitely burnt off. However, the sequelae caused by the curse cannot be treated. ”
“… Really? ”
“Let me give you another example. If a user is mentally contaminated, it can be cleaned up. However, if a user develops mental illness due to contamination, the mental illness itself is incurable. ”
“Well, there are more restrictions than I thought. Can’t you just burn everything? ”
I suddenly remembered when I used the power of peace on Margarita. I then convinced myself to burn down a bad memory. The Elf Queen’s reaction later suggested a possibility, but Seraph denied that possibility to the forefront.
‘Then, was that really a coincidence? ’
As she bites her lip and thinks, Seraph’s calm tone flows into her ears.
“The tinnitus of peace is eternally burning chloride. You can burn everything, but it’s literally just burning. With a focus on destructive activity, healing is just an add-on. Also, please note that Kim Soo-hyun’s current rating is only S rank. ”
“After all, I can save lives, but I can’t be sure what happens after that… Tsk.”
Then the only cure is for Elixir. As he pulls out the elixir in his chest and kicks out his tongue, Seraph tilts his head and opens his mouth.
“Elixir? You don’t think Kim Soo-hyun will use Elixir? ”
“I’m thinking about it. ”
“I don’t know how important the user you’re trying to save is to Kim Soo-hyun. But if you’re not sure, I suggest you hold off on what you’re thinking right now. There are many different kinds of sequelae. It can get worse, it can stay the same, or it can get better over time. Elixir, it’s an ancient potion like one’s life. I don’t know who I’m going to use it on, but I think we should definitely stop using nonsense. ”
“Yeah, I actually think so. Come on, once you save your life, you’ll have plenty of time. We’ll need to keep an eye on the trend. ”
A subtle light flashes into Seraph’s eyes as he nods softly.
Seraph’s words were clearly inconvenient. The most urgent thing right now is your life. Take your time and take care of it. And, of course, we didn’t intend to, but we don’t want to waste the elixir using it for free.
Anyway, by talking to Seraph, I was able to clear up some of the complicated feelings. I got all the information I could get at this point, so I jumped up and spit something out.
“I heard you. Anyway, I gotta go. Thank you. »
“Oh, it’s nothing. You’re welcome. Helping users is the role of a helper. ”
‘Why all of a sudden? ’
Seraph’s reaction is a little subtle, but he quickly turns away.
“user Kim Soo-hyun. ”
Then, as I tried to throw myself into the portal, a quiet voice flew behind my back. I stopped walking reflexively.
“I…. Will you come again next time…? ”
“ ……. ”
I flew straight for the portal.
After meeting Seraph, you leave the temple. After I finished my business by going to the square and looking at the public bulletin board, I moved to a clan house.
One day, after dawn, a sudden morning came. Imhanna was faithful to my instructions. As I entered the main hall and entered the conference room on the third floor, I could see the ten seated clans. Some of them, of course, had their faces bashed in on the table with their heads.
“Where have you been since early this morning? ”
“I had business in the temple, in the square. ”
After sitting on the bench, I watched An-hyun shake An-sol and Yu-jeong, and answered the question of classicism. At that moment, I suddenly thought and looked at her. Yeon-ju was always staring at me with the same attitude.
“… user melody. ”
“Hoho. Yes, how did it go? ”
“That went well. ”
“I was worried, but thank God. ”
The last words of classicism held meaning only I could understand. If you have read her feelings at the moment, Yeon-ju smiles at the application. I felt warm in the corner of my heart when I saw her smiling even though she had been committed so badly last night. I don’t need to say it. I’m fine, as if that’s what you were telling me. When I saw the reaction, I felt relieved, but I also felt uncomfortable when I saw the eye area that was slightly swollen.
‘Apologize, but let’s do it later. Let’s concentrate now.’
This is how you want to behave. Thanks to her deep consideration, I sighed for a short time. After looking at all the clans, you open your mouth in a powerful voice.
“Everyone’s eyes are drowsy. I told you not to wake me, but I appreciate you meeting me earlier than usual. ”
“… the reason I got you here so early in the morning is because I have an urgent matter to tell you. Today, I, and a few other members of my clan, will have to vacate the Clan House for two to three days. ”
“Eek! Why? Yo? »
I was surprised to hear that I was leaving the Clan House, but I had a nightmare because I woke up and looked at me. She reacts the most, but not just for reason. I think I need a little more detail. I began to explain what happened last night calmly.
The Hamill Clan has a countercurse, and there’s a multifaceted call for help. They asked me to go to Istanbul to get help. And lastly, I was able to cure the curse of Antichrist with my anger, and this morning I went to check with my angel to see if it was true.
Of course, I did not explain it as it is.
‘Elixir… Let’s put it in. If you want to look at the situation and feel the need…. ’
It’s not dangerous for you or Hansoyoung. You may think it’s a little sad, but if the nature of the sequelae improves, you’ll blow up a bad bottle. That’s why the elixir I had in my possession decided to return it to the storeroom, and I was able to finish the explanation.
Soon, the clans who heard all the explanations began to ask one or two questions. The first batsman was definitely a fighter.
“Clan Road. But if you use that power… ”
“You may know that you’ve just increased your Stamina stats. The output when used for treatment is sufficiently durable. ”
Jungyeon immediately raised her voice of concern, but she was able to shut her mouth immediately. At that time, Ko Yong, who had been listening so far, quietly raised his hand and asked for permission to speak. I nodded right away to allow you to speak.
“I totally understand what you’re saying. The Hamill Clan is looking for a way to save the Clan member under the Banshee Curse. And Clan Lord has the power to cure it. ”
“Then I have a question. What does Clan Lord want with the Hamill Clan by helping him do this? Is it reward or alliance? You know, of course, the value of life is quite precious. ”
“Of course there’s a reason for that. Well, that would be a surface reason. But there’s one other reason. This is very personal and we can’t go into detail yet. Just so I’m clear, personal reasons will never affect my public judgment. ”
Just when I cut it off, Yeon-ju looked satisfied. I paused and chose to breathe. As Yeon-ryong said, don’t do this for free, but take what you need. And as long as I’m Clan Road, I don’t take that responsibility lightly. I was going to let the clans know where and how to use it, even if it was in my possession.
“After all, the Hamill Clan is very popular in the Eastern City. You may remember what I said the other day. Users come together to form clans, and clans come together to form cities. As a mercenary, you owe the Hamill Clan almost free of charge. If I take a little bit of effort, I might be able to clean the cornerstones of a good relationship with the Hamill Clan in the future. ”
“If it’s not too much of a clan lord’s body, I’m all for it. ”
“It’s certainly important to have relationships around you once you’ve created a clan. Well, it may take a while for the Clan of the Eastern City, but the Istantel Row asked for help, so there’s nothing left to take. I agree.”
If I thought there was a reason, then Goon and Jeong Yeon supported me with bright faces. In fact, I was okay with the fact that there were two strongly influential people within the current clan, and no one opposed me.
After a while, everyone’s gaze came to me, except Ansol, who was still trying not to doze off. In the beginning, I declared that I would take a few people, not just me. And there was already a number of people to take.
“User melody. ”
“By user Kim Hanbyol. ”
Yeon-ju was relaxed, and Kim Han-suh was surprised and replied.
“There’s a saying to take the horn out in a short run. We will depart as soon as we are ready. So you two get ready to leave as soon as this meeting is over. Oh, no matter how long it takes, it won’t take more than three days, so just be prepared. ”
“Wouldn’t a day be enough if you went to Hamill for a while? ”
“The Hamill Clan is located in Princica on the Eastern Commonwealth. I will stop by Mule one more time, not come back right after I finish my business there. ”
The mysterious voice of classicism. I calmly folded my head and buried myself in a chair. Looking at Kim Han-star for a moment, I saw her still trembling. And….
‘Hmph. 1000 gold. A little more. ’
« If you’re going to recruit a Jewel Wizard, will you bring him here? » ’
I opened my mouth slowly, thinking of the inspiration that would still be at Mule’s jewelry store.
“There’s only one person you want to meet on Mule. I had an appointment when I was working there. Oh, it’s more like a favor than a promise… Anyway, he’s been kind to me. ”
Of course, I was also going to propose to recruit a concierge. As I still didn’t understand, I smiled as I watched the head tilt and tilt. He was also a user with a rare class called ‘Gem Appraiser’. It might be a big help to Gimhanbyol if he could recruit him.
At the time, although we failed to recruit, this time will be different. Comparing the basis of that time with the basis of that now, it was showing such a big difference.
“Well, then…. ”
“Er? Mulayo…? ”
At that moment, Ansool, who has been dozing off, raises his angry head like a cold water.
