Chapter 436 00436 The Sleeping Mountains.
A cool breeze blows. And there were so many users’ hair hanging out. A woman’s dark hair is scattered into the air, and she shakes her head back to her original position.
« Queen of Blood and Iron » Han Soyoung. As the title suggests, there was a woman who didn’t even blink an eye, but now her eyes were filled with a sense of tension.
The place where the woman’s gaze reached was a flat area surrounded by mountains high above sea level. However, it is not well visible. The basin was covered with cloudy fog, only a dark and dreary aura flowed out and held the steps of those looking down.
Again, the wind blows.
This wind was also cool, but I feel something different. It felt like some kind of warning, the presence of something unpleasant and sticky. It’s like, « Come any closer and you’ll die.” like I said.
Tra n sl a t e d b y Jp mtl.ｃo ｍ A moment later, a man approaches the woman. A man with a slightly luminous chain mail grips a large axe with both hands. However, the man seemed very nervous because his hands were slightly trembling and a drop or two of sweat was coming out.
Soon the man opened his mouth with a cautious face.
“Clan Road. The summoned queen’s army will not return. ”
“… I know. I confirmed the disappearance five minutes ago. ”
The woman accepted it lightly. However, I didn’t know that the word « extinction » would come out, and the man widened his eyes and showed his emotions.
The woman sighs softly, but turns her head. And you gaze at the clans standing in line behind you.
Clan Istantel Row.
They were as powerful as the reputation spread across the North Continent, but their faces were not so different from women or men. Rather, I saw the fear in his liver, overwhelmed by the energy coming from the basin in front of me. T rans lat e d by ｊp ｍ t l .ｃoｍ
“… Should I just go back? ”
It was a voice of sadness. The woman turns her head again and stares at the basin with sad eyes. After all the hard work, I came all the way here, and it was just a waste to turn around.
However, the other thought was not so, the man calmly shook his head and asked the woman to calm down.
“Clan Road. Remember the end of Jung Chang-min. He breathed and stopped them from going inside. Though we have managed to get here, we may have to make more sacrifices to attack the ruins. ”
Jung Chang-min was a member of Istanbul Low’s clan until the day before, and a well-known user of his ability to handle the outcome. He was also a unlucky user who had been eaten in the ‘dragon sleeping mountain range’ by a single mistake.
‘Evil, cries, despair, flesh, hatred, etc…. Anyway, as I go inside, I feel something very bad. Clan Road. Actually, I really didn’t want to go there. Sorry….’
The woman was silent for a while. I just closed my eyes like a habit. And after chewing my lips for a long time, I broke the silence and opened my mouth.
“Let’s go back.”
Eventually, the woman’s waiver fell. And the clan members, who were watching, turned around and looked relieved together.
At the same time, a long sigh came out of the mouth of a young man who was standing at the very back.
“I don’t like it. ”
It was very late. Clan members were exhausted by the vigilante today and went into their sleeping bags as soon as they finished dinner, and only me and Heo Junyoung were left standing.
T ra nsl a ted b y Jpm t l.ｃ oｍ As I tried to throw away the splintered firewood, I turned my eyes to look at Heo Junyoung. The reaction was too late to think of anything else for a while. Soon after Eagle Eagle is thrown into the blazing campfire, the table pops up again.
It wasn’t until I saw the flames rise again that I opened my mouth.
“What, are you going to save An-hyun? ”
“Just everyone. I’m going to save An-hyun and I have to attend to this. ”
I have to be part of this.
I calmly stared at Heo Junyoung. There was a dark purple light flowing on the long hair that had grown to the waist of the man. The outfit you’re wearing is a black coat, with unknown symbols engraved all over it, emitting a subtle light.
Heo Joon-young took out his sword and laid it on his leg, blindfolded. I don’t know what he was thinking, but his sensitivity felt totally dark. I felt warmer than a man with a sword in his hand.
Later, Heo Junyoung opened his eyes and looked at me. It was the eyes that glowed dark, like the hair color.
“A year ago. So when I just joined the mercenary, something like this happened. ”
“A year ago? ”
Doubtful, I recalled something a year ago.
The first relationship with Heo Joon-young was when he worked as a Wanderer Killing Jo. Immediately, the vagrants came in and went out of the slaughter with information of a hideout, and by the time they got there, they could see the user arriving one step ahead.
The user was Heo Junyoung. He was alone in the battle with nearly a hundred vagrants, including the Viceroy.
At that time, Heo Jun-young… I don’t know. I’ve been preaching in my own way, but I think I was in a pretty dangerous situation with the vagrant’s systematic response. So I came out and killed Joe, who immediately backed him up and wiped out the vagrants.
Of course, Heo Junyoung didn’t join right there. He then gave a simple gesture of gratitude and said, « One day I will repay you.” Leaving a note behind, I turned my back on user information.
Unfortunately, the reunion between me and Heo Junyoung was held by Lee Hyo, the protector of the North Continent. It turns out that Heo Junyoung’s identity was the role of helping Yi Hyo to become the hands and feet of Yi Jungyoung. At that time, I went to deal with the vagrant. I was asked by Lee Hyo. Translated b y Ｊpmt l .ｃ o ｍ
At that time, Lee Hyuk found a successor. As soon as the acquisition was over, he quit the Guardian, and similarly, Heo Junyoung’s contract with Heo Joon-young was already preparing to finish.
So Lee Hyo-young proposed that we stop both of them anyway, and take Heo Jun-young from Mercenary beforehand.
Since then, Heo Jun-young and I had a little chat and joined the formal process.
It was a good thing that I got one user who was comparable to the rest, and Heo Junyoung also has a duty to repay the favor, so I joined in return.
The memory is followed by a tail. Whether I didn’t think of it, Heo Junyoung said in a slightly stuffy tone.
“About Ahn Hyun, something similar happened a year ago. And I’m having a hard time fixing it. ”
“Oh, that. But… It’s not even comparable to then. ”
Heo Jun-young shakes his head slowly, smiling freshly.
“Isn’t it a similar context in the end? After that, I wanted to be a little quiet, but the thunder-naked guy caused trouble again. I mean, you didn’t follow your control then and now. ”
“That’s right. ”
“… So why don’t we just leave it at that? Honestly, I’m running out of love for him on this one. If you’re lucky, you’ll come back alive, and if you’re unlucky, you can’t help it. We’re not sure… ”
“You can’t do that. ”
I just cut and answered. And he spoke in a resolute voice.
“I decided to save them, and the rescue team is already here. I know what you mean, but I don’t want to change my mind, I don’t want to change my mind. You go back on your own to get back. ”
Tra n s la ted b y Ｊp mt l.ｃo ｍ Tak, Tak!
Suddenly, a thick fire erupted from the blazing fire. Heo Jun-young waved her head slightly, whether she was hit by a fire dung.
And after a long time, I opened my mouth slowly.
“… I hate that. ”
“Dragon Sleep Mountains are dangerous places. We can’t start pulling together and already being uncooperative. ”
“It was just an idea. Now that I think about it, I have no choice but to go in. ”
“It’s inevitable. ”
I smiled bitterly. A while ago, words were a habit rather than being the heart of Heo Junyoung. He was going to lend me his power eventually, but before that, he had a habit of grumbling. You know, sometimes it feels like you’re seeing a cat. Well, a guy’s a cat, but it’s a little inappropriate.
It was then.
Again, while slowly shriveling to pick up the firewood, Heo Junyoung and I turned our heads to one side at the same time. It’s because I suddenly felt the slightest vibrations from the earth. The vibrations that seemed to dig a tunnel were still felt constant.
‘Is that a Zakhalod…? The number is about 30.’
Zachary Lord. Simply put, he’s a monster on the ground. The body itself is a monster optimized for digging or living underground, and they are vicious to raid while users sleep.
“Now that I think about it, it’s time to change the number… Bye. Sleep first. ”
Heo Joon-young immediately got up and drew his sword with a cool skill. The blade’s width was very thin, but its length was very long, almost like its own height. From now on, I slowly opened my mouth as I looked at Heo Joon-young who was wearing a sword on his shoulder.
“You can come with me. ”
“Not really. I don’t think they’re following us… I don’t care if there are dozens of peasants. ”
‘They’re following us.’
Heo Junyoung replied as if it was spilling. I listened carefully to him.
The followers who just brought it up are the users or vagrants who have been following us from the moment they left Monica. The distance control was so delicate, I was just feeling like someone was following me, but I felt really good about it.
“Anyway, I’ll be back soon. Don’t worry, go to bed first. ”
In Heo Joon-young’s conviction, I nodded my head and raised my body. If you are that good, it will be funny to call them « peasants. »
“Should I wake him up? ”
“No, thank you. I’ll wake you when I get back, so give me one for the beginning of the year. ”
Throwing it out on a request for a year’s wager, he grabs it with his thin fingers. At the same time, the moment he lightly leapt over the earth, Heo Junyoung’s body suddenly disappeared, as if he had used an arctic projection. He was a highly agile incognito class like me.
After checking for a rough fire, I buried myself in a sleeping bag.
Later, there was a great surge of darkness on one side, the sound of cutting through the earth, and the supposedly screams of the Zacalod.
I slowly fell asleep, accompanied by those sounds.
It was a little foggy, but the sky was clear and blue this morning.
We simply finished eating and left early in the morning. As you set out, you hear that Ansol and the well slept well well, but you don’t seem to know that they almost got attacked by Zakhalod.
Looking at Heo Junyoung reflectively, he quietly shakes his head. It’s not his usual boastful personality, but he wants to move on quietly.
The dragon sleeping mountain range is an area about three weeks northwest of the western town of Dorothy.
In three weeks, it was still a few trips for users, but the mountain ranges were classified as commonly referred to as uncharted areas. It’s because the road is so difficult, and monsters that are difficult to deal with often appear in droves.
By now, we have already passed through the red desert and the magnetic wilderness through the raging swamps. And if you pass the plains of the fog you’re walking on, you’ll see the rugged mountains that form the Gulf Mountains from then on. That was the beginning of an uncharted area.
I am calmly reminded.
During the first time, the North Continent stabilized and targeted all areas before attacking the Steel Mountains. However, if there was only one exception, it was the Dragon Sleeping Mountains.
The last clan I challenged was the Istantel Low Clan. Even though one of the deaths came out, how was it possible to get to the edge of the ruins? However, Han So-young eventually turned around and left the ruins in front of her.
At that time, the death of Istanbul Row was known as Jung Chang-min, a user who was good at dealing with the consequences. He lost his life because of a momentary mistake, leaving me a will just before he died.
‘Soo-hyun… Perhaps Clan Lord… If the clan members tell you that they want to stop you… You must stop him…’
‘She likes you a lot. Haha… If you dry it, you won’t be stubborn… But please. Something’s not right. And…’
In the end, Han So-young was stubborn about the clan members. Then, according to Jung Chang-min’s will, he sealed a large seal near the ruins and finished the attack by cleaning only the inside of the mountain range.
After returning, it was announced to be publicly stable, but technically, it was difficult to see it as a complete attack. It wasn’t exploring inside the ruins, it was just sealing it to keep the things inside from coming out.
Another question here was the existence of missing users in the mountains.
Whether it was once or twice, the disappearance of users within the mountains suddenly disappeared. It’s normal to have a corpse when you can’t even see it. Many users anticipated that it might be within the ruins, but the anticipation ended with a guess that seals the ruins themselves.
I thought I might have to explore the ruins, and I turned my mind to the history of the mountains.
The Ancient Hall Plain also writes about the history of the ancient times, the Great War in Myth. The dragons who ruled the continent and the battles of humans who wanted to escape their control.
The last winner was clearly a human being. The mythical inhabitants won the final battle. And the dragon of the Apocalypse, Magna Carta, put a curse on the final place with her soul before she died.
However, no subsequent records have been written. It was normal to mention at least a brief line of results later, that the dragon was victorious in battle and put a curse on it.
Anyway, the place where we ended the decades-long battle was where we were headed.
“Wow. What then? And then what happened? ”
While marching calmly, Ansol blinks and asks. I told him about an ancient myth briefly on the way, but he seemed quite interested.
Towards an anvil that pulls my arm tight with a face that I’m so curious about, I slowly shake my head.
“I don’t know after that. It’s not in the records. If you’re curious, go back and find it yourself. ”
“Hmmm… Dragon of the Apocalypse Magna Carta… I wonder… »
Ansol held my arm tightly, but tilted his elongated head. Looking at him, I opened my mouth quietly.
“You’re not worried much, are you? ”
“Woof? Worried? ”
“An-hyun, your Chin’s brother. ”
“Ahh. Yeah, no worries. My brother has cockroach-like vitality! And your brother is on his way to rescue you. Hehe.”
Ansol smiles brightly. You’re really okay, and now you’re swinging your grabbed arm.
Is he still alive? ‘
Whether or not this reaction should be a comfort to me was when I thought about it. Suddenly, he suddenly approaches, smiling and talking to Ansol.
“Our sole. You must really like Clan Lord. ”
“Yes! Me too. My brother loves his work in the world…. Huh? Huh? Hey, sis. Why are you suddenly pulling me away? ”
“Oh, my brush is so cute. ”
“Uh, uh…? ”
Ansol opened his arms wide, and began to be dragged away by the rest. It was a short time before I turned my arm around, watching the anvil stirring my hands in the air.
“Ugh…! Ugh…! »
Suddenly, a faint groan comes from Gene’s back. The voice settles. I immediately stop marching and run to the new Jae Dragon. At the moment, New Jae Ryong was on his way up.
“What’s going on? ”
Running one step, the new Jaeryong looks down in anxious glance, laying his head flat. He lets out a light sigh and reaches his appetite.
“Suddenly the united forces…. ”
“What’s the status? ”
“It was fine until last night. Suddenly, from the edge of the fog plains, he was in agony. No, he looks tired, he looks scared, and now he’s in pain. I don’t even listen to healing orders…. I’m not sure. ”
“… Tsk. ”
I kicked my tongue without even knowing it. It was natural for me not to listen to the treatment order. The grain in front of us was just an empty shell, or half a seat.
Luckily, my heart was beating when I touched my chest. However, it was much weaker than when we left, so it was not strange to stop soon.
“I think we should try the vigilante again. User New Dragon, please. ”
“That’s okay. I’m strong for priests. ”
Shin Jae Ryong shakes his head excitedly and lifts his arms again.
Soon after, I saw the clans preparing for the vigilantes again, and I asked for lips. Honestly, I’ve been running restlessly, so I wanted to give myself a little time to regain my strength ahead of the mountains. I tried to stop the enforcers as much as I could, but the situation was not convenient.
The vigilante is ready in a heartbeat. Shortly before I set off again, I paused for a moment and looked back.
Until last night, the sneaky pursuits I felt, I no longer feel rich this morning. However, just in case, looking at Heo Jun-young, he looks back and shakes his head excitedly.
I opened my mouth to the clans.
“I’m going to take a three minute break. I will hardly rest until I find a way to rest, so feel free to think of it as your last. ”
After a quick talk, I quickly moved to one side to keep my distance from the clans. At the same time, I gave her a glance, and soon she realized she was following me around.
“Soo-hyun, what’s going on? ”
“The pilgrimage that followed us until yesterday is gone. Did you know?”
When I asked her about it, she opened her eyes wide. But as soon as she nodded her head, she also knew.
“Yes, actually, after breakfast, at the end of the plains, I think I retreated. I think they’re wondering if we’re going into the mountains or not… I don’t know why. ”
“That’s it. ”
A tall melody that tilts its head. I took another look around, then approached her and grabbed her shoulder. Yeon-ju blinked for a moment and stared at me with mysterious eyes.
“User melody. You need to listen to me now. I have an important request. ”
“An important favor? Are you asking me to go back? ”
“I’m sorry, that’s correct. ”
“… Phew. ”
Goyeon hasn’t spoken for a while. But soon, with the sound of crying, I broke my body like a fall in my arms.
“Heheheh. It’s too much.”
“I’m sorry, but all I have to do is play. ”
I’m sorry to ask you to come back here, but I had no choice. It was not a spontaneous idea, but a thought from the moment I saw Kim Jong-seong in the conference room. And when I felt the crowd following us, I was almost certain. The reason I brought the wells in the beginning was to fill the gaps in the classicists.
“… is it just me? ”
“Yes. From now on, Goon must return to the city without anyone knowing. ”
Perhaps the group that followed us secretly followed us, as Yeon-ryong said, to check whether or not the rescue troops went into the mountains.
To be more precise, he would have tried to determine whether the « Shadow Queen » was participating and whether she had abandoned her midterm. Because there’s no one more pressing for information and tracking than the high notes.
‘Of course, all this is just speculation….’
I believed in my ten-year ten-year career in the pitch. This case was filled with something incredibly steamy and smelly.
“The point is, we have to go back without anyone knowing. ”
When I spoke again, the sound of Yeon-ju’s crying stopped.
Soon, I felt a slight lift in my head.
“Soo-hyun, what’s the matter? ”
The soft voice tickled my ears. Looking down, I could see a high performance with a deep smile on its mouth.
After a while, I opened my mouth as if whispering.

Luckily, it’s not too late. Thanks to you, I’ve had a good trip to my big house. I stopped by to say hello.:)
And when I saw the wedding, I felt jealous, and I wondered if I was going to finish it too soon.
Heo Joon-young, An-sol, Shin Jae-ryong. We’ll update your info in the morning. From Seoul to Changwon, I’m a little busy right now and very tired. Haha.
* Joon-Young Lee’s name changed to Heo Jun-young. Please understand our readers.
* The clan members who joined the rescue party were not Baek Seung-hoon, but New Jae Ryong. One of the new priests, Seung Hun Baek, was confused with the new Dragon. We’re sorry for the confusion._(__)_
