Chapter 547 00547 Suspicious Energy.
After the launch ceremony in Monica, the Southern expedition reached the Steel Mountains in 21 days. Right in front of the Steel Mountains, to be exact. They arrived fairly quickly because they had reduced their original distance by three weeks. So, by the time I entered the fortress, the night was already deep.
The first impression of the fortress returning in eight weeks was, in fact, a little disappointing.
What a fortress is. Isn’t it a fortified defensive facility at a militarily important point?
However, the visible view of the outpost is closer to the camp than the fortress. Having to accommodate thousands of people is fine, but a defensive facility is all that’s left of an awkward outpost or watchtower. Anything else with a fence around it and a bunch of tents?
It’s been eight weeks since we started building, so what do you expect? It doesn’t change the fact that monsters will be swept away if they appear right now.
Tran s la t e d by Ｊpｍtl .ｃo m After the Southern expedition entered the fortress, Han So-young instructed her to release the poison at the tent because she was going into the Steel Mountains early tomorrow morning.
But I was the exception there. The officers in charge of each unit had to meet separately. They heard that the eastern side had stopped marching two weeks ago, so they had to refine their plan for a subsequent attack by handing over information such as march routes or specifics.
Of course, there were other users who were in charge of such information transfer.
“Welcome. Mr. Soyoung, welcome to Mercenary Road. And…. Koran Road? Should I call you? ”
As we entered the huge tent in the middle, Lee Hyo welcomed us with a wave.
“Haha, no. Just call me Happiness. Koran Road, that’s embarrassing. ”
Park Hwan-hee replied with a smile. Lee Hyo-il said, « Then rejoice.” After saying that, he led us to our seats.
There was nothing inside the tent. No, he was in such a deep state. A big table in the middle and a big map on top. And three or four light stones to brighten up the inside of the tent. The last bed in the corner was all that was inside the tent. I don’t even see a chair. T ran sla t ed by jpmt l.ｃoｍ
“A bit of a fortress, isn’t it? But understand, it’s so far away from the city that it’s hard to airlift materials, and there are a lot of workers who are reluctant to give gold coins. There’s a lot to do, but the circumstances around here are so dramatic. ”
Soon after, we gathered around the table and said in a voice that we were really sorry for Lee Hyo-in. Such a look seems to see a gentle lady.
I stared at Lee Hyo-in a loss. Are you doing this because you’re in front of Han So-young and Park Hwang Hee? I wish you’d say that when you talk to me.
Han So-young shakes her head calmly.
“I understand. I’ve had a lot of difficulties mobilizing workers. Maybe it’s a miracle we got 450 people together. ”
“Oh, 450? I didn’t fill 300 in the east two weeks ago. Soyoung’s handiwork is amazing. ”
“Haha. Really. Okay, then. Anyway, thank you all for coming. So let’s get to the point. First, let me start with the March route of the eastern region…. ”
At that moment, Lee Hyo-in was about to enter the explanation, but suddenly he stopped speaking. It’s because Han So-young in the opposite direction slowly raised her hands. And that hand, soon, pointed to me.
“You’d better talk to Mercenary Lord about the March route. He is a guide for our Southern expedition. ”
“Yes? But Istantel Low Road is the gun commander of the Southern expedition. ”
“Of course, I’ll be listening next to you. But I also delegated all of my authority by putting the lead troops on the Mercenary Road. I can’t be a state in this part of the world. ”
“… Really? ”
Lee Hyo Eul blinked once or twice and gave a long look. I tried to bury myself on the outside, but I smiled on the inside.
This is the most prominent of the many advantages of Han Soyoung. No matter what I do, I don’t have the authority to do it, and I know how to use my load in the right place. I am more capable of finding my way, so I am fully empowered to do so. T ra n s la t ed by Jpｍtl .coｍ
From Han Soyoung’s point of view, it was that he trusted me that much. I’m not in a bad mood.
“Hmmm. Mercenary Road, then. Can you take a closer look at this first? ”
Lee Hyo had a mild exsanguination and then moved the map to make it easier for me to see. Because of that, Han So-young approached my side and leaned her torso, and I had to swallow. The fragrance of a mature adult…. Oh, shit. Let’s concentrate.
I worked my way through mind training and looked at the benefits.
Lee Hyo-l’s detection pointed to the entrance of the Steel Mountains, precisely where the outpost was located.
“The first advance of the Eastern expedition is a huge success. According to my contact yesterday, I’ve never been ambushed until this point. You may be lucky, but based on the signs of the creature being thought to be an intermediate monster running away, you might have guessed that the plans to target the fire system were more effective than you could have imagined. ”
“So the monsters fled because they were frightened by the large-scale system? ”
“Most likely. Anyway, Mercenary Road. In detail from the beginning, the East arrived at the Outpost two weeks ago and went into the Steel Mountains the next day. And… »
Lee, who paused for a moment, moved his index finger. The fingertips that were sliding were initially straight lines. Suddenly, however, he draws a slight curve to the left and stops moving past one area.
I watched it closely. The bypass, not the stop.
“Just yesterday. We stopped the march here. ”
“Isn’t that better? ”
“Yes. I think they’re going to build a fort here. I hear you’re taking up positions as you execute your fire plan. ” T r an sl a t ed b y Jp m tl .ｃ o m
“Take your place. I don’t know. I think we should go in a little further. ”
“I did, but I agreed to it. Securing a safe zone is more important than blood. ”
“No. Even so, it’s too small a march. That’s enough… A week? No matter how long I held him, he was only on the march for 10 days. Was there a problem in the middle? ”
I did. The point where Lee Hyo Eul’s detection stopped was the distance I didn’t think I’d made it for two weeks.
However, Lee Hyo shook his head.
“No, it doesn’t matter. Well, you know, it’s true that the East has been blessed with its early entry. After three days of burning it down, we should be able to break through the aftermath of the volcano pretty quickly. But since then, the march has slowed significantly. Cho Sung-ho, the General Commander of the Eastern Expedition, chose a safe way to get there a little slower. ”
That doesn’t make any sense. But it still doesn’t make me feel uncomfortable.
I pointed to the next part of the bypass.
“Then one more thing. Why did you go straight ahead and turn here? ”
It was then.
The moment I said that, Lee Hyo-woo’s eyes caught the light of worry. It was a very fleeting moment, but I did not miss it.
“Ah…. Mm-hmm. ”
“User Benefits. I thought each expedition was supposed to share all the information. ”
Lee Hyo Eul waved his hands with his eyes wide open, speaking a little menacing.
T ran s l a t ed b y jpmtl .c om “No! What are you getting at? That part doesn’t really matter, but there’s nothing vague about it, so I didn’t say anything. I can’t give you the wrong information, can I? ”
“Huh. The Eastern expedition must have found a monster camp there. Of course, there were no monsters, only signs of escape, like I said. ”
“That’s even weirder. If that’s all, there’s no reason to bypass. ”
“Me, too, actually. That’s why I said it was beautiful. However, Cho Sung-ho has command, so there’s no reason for me to interfere. He didn’t mention anything important. Anyway, if you’re curious about that part, maybe you should go ask her yourself. ”
“ ……. ”
Lee Hyuk shrugged his shoulders, tied his horses as if protesting. Seeing him made my eyes narrow. Rather than saying it because it was really unfair, I felt like I had prepared a reply because I knew this question would come out.
I stared at Lee Hyo for a while and calmed down. These cooperative attacks should be most wary of each other’s disbelief and disagreement. We must never stop whining from the beginning.
This meeting confirmed at least one possibility.
That there must be a reason for the Eastern expedition to stop marching.
What is Cho Sung-ho hiding? What else do you think they’re up against?
I turned my eyes to the map and thought deeply.
“I don’t like it. ”
The well enters the tent, ruggedly tossing the bag aside. Sasha looks away from Salmoney, who worked hard in the corner cleaning up her sleeping bag.
“Don’t you like the radish that much? Female cat.”
“Just everything! I don’t like this sloppy fortress! I don’t like that cock on the case! I don’t like this guy, Gun Commander! What the fuck are you talking to my brother about? You cut that in half. ”
As the well spills its rough complaint, Sasha takes a moment to let go and thinks. The word cock refers to the man named Ko Ohwan. It was only a long time ago that I could see it.
But more than that, it was true that I was more interested in the last word.
“Looks like you’re complaining more about the Gun Commander than anything else. The Istanbul Low Road? ”
“Oh, I see. If you get bored in the middle of a march, you’ll be instructed by voice amplification magic. What kind of paper is my brother? You’re just gonna have to squirm. ”
“Well, I don’t recall that human woman giving much instruction. And judging by the directions, it’s almost a name for training. Anyway, I couldn’t find the memory to be particularly grumpy. Aren’t you?”
“Oh, right. The Gun Commander was supposed to be in charge of my brother, too, but where…? Anyway, I feel dirty. Why should I listen to him? He’s the only one who can tell me what to do. ”
The well took a nervous walk, spilling out its elongated complaints. Then Sasha lay down in her carefully stuffed sleeping bag.
Sasha blinks awfully and takes a big breath.
“Hmm. I think I know what you’re feeling. But don’t get all dirty on the outside. Excessive loyalty to a human is often poisoned. Carve it up, you female cat. ”
“I don’t know about that. And one more time, it’s a female cat. This is a male vampire. ”
“Vampires. A proud bloodline. By the way, I was going to use this sleeping bag. ”
“You said it was a proud bloodline. You don’t even know Lady First? ”
Sasha said, « Are you a cat burglar?” I muttered. The well smiles and raises its torso. Sasha pulls the well back out of the tent like she was running away.
“You’re such a prissy girl. ”
Sasha takes a deep sigh shaking her head and begins to move calmly. I wasn’t looking for another tent, I was looking for the outside of the fort. The southernmost point where you can see the Steel Mountains.
The Steel Mountains were quiet. And it’s dark. Though part of the maneuver was compromised, I see nothing. Sometimes a strange energy comes from the wind, but it only makes the surrounding static stand out.
Even the moonlight in the night sky was eating away at the interior of the forest, and only darkness was entering and a dark energy was being spilled. It’s as if they’re spreading their arms towards the outpost.
About the time Sasha, who had such a hard face, was staring at the open entrance.
“You were the first to enter the tent. What are you doing here all of a sudden? Dog nose.”
A beautiful aesthetic rang out in Sasha’s ears. The woman walking slowly along the rounded fence was none other than Helena.
“I wondered if I was having an affair. A lizard was wandering around. ”
“Hoho. The forest was nearly consumed by darkness. You talk a lot.”
Helena suddenly smiles and turns to look inside the forest, just like Sasha.
So little time has passed.
After a while, Sasha glances at the sliding forest and opens her mouth as if curious.
“Lizards. How are you? ”
“What do you think?”
“The forest. Forest. Strange quiet, isn’t it? How does that make you feel? ”
“Forest nights are always quiet. ”
Helena flinches. But Sasha slowly crosses her head.
“You know that’s not what you’re asking. ”
“Then? Why? Did your nose smell something else? ”
“Rather than weird…. ”
“Yes. As you said, the forest nights are always quiet. But… »
“ ……? ”
Then the wind blows again, and Sasha closes her eyes. Then, I burst into the wind as hard as I could.
“Groaning…. Screaming…. Despair…. ”
“… What are you talking about? ”
Sasha Felix whispering as if she were talking to herself. Helena asks, but Sasha says nothing. He just takes in the breeze with a focused face.
And after a while.
“It must be such a quiet forest… ”
The wind breaks and the road is still.
Sasha opened her eyes and frowned. At the same time, Najik said, shining his eyes wide.
“Why…. Is that what death smells like? ”

Oww. I’m going crazy these days. Anybody ever smoke an electronic cigarette? I’ve been having a bit of a cough lately, but I think it’s the cigarette. I think it should be reduced, but I don’t think so. It’s almost a habit to find… I didn’t know how to cut it or cut it, but I didn’t know smoking was so hard. T
