Chapter 121: Mercenary (5)

Bang!

“Just what is the meaning of this Hyungnim!”

The Spear G.o.d Flanc roughly opened the door where the Martial King was staying.

He felt his anger bubbling to the surface after healing that Yeon-woo, Phante, and Edora had gone over to the Red Dragon.

And they must’ve taken secret information of Cheonghwado with them, because they were suffering from Red Dragon’s attacks.

Because they were children he had raised like his disciples. He couldn’t help but become angry.

Everyone who had been inside turned to look at him. They were all faces the Spear G.o.d knew.

Elders. The Martial King treated them like they were old geezers mooching off of the tribe, but they were actually largely respected by the tribe members.

“Flance, what are you doing? Even if we’re brothers, no, because we’re brothers, you should be more respectful! This is an official conference. Behave appropriately.”

Then, an elder giving off an impression of a scholar lifted his head.

Head Elder. The Spear G.o.d didn’t particularly feel comfortable around him since he was one. No, everyone felt uncomfortable around his strict personality except for the Martial King.

His Mugong was known to rival the Martial King’s, so the Spear G.o.d felt intimidated.

“No. Since with this contract, you’ve completely let go of all authority for the royal tribe. You have to be treated as the Spear G.o.d of Cheonghwado. Spear G.o.d, please be respectful.”

“….”

The Spear G.o.d bit his lower lip. He had forgotten about his position because he was blind from anger.

The reason why the One-horned tribe partic.i.p.ated in the Tower’s business was because of the pledge the Spear G.o.d had made with them.

The Pledge of the Horn.

The pledge to let go of his horn.

The One-horned tribe had a lot of pride for the G.o.d they served. They were able to achieve what they achieved because of this G.o.d, and with the vision of Mugong, they were able to have the reputation they did.

Because of this, the direct royal descendants of their guardian G.o.d were extremely respected.

Of course, they didn’t focus on their statuses within the tribe, but there was still an underlying respect.

And so the family had a lot of responsibilities. The same went for the Spear G.o.d. He didn’t have to do as much because the Martial King became king, but his place as the Martial King’s blood-related brother was safe and set in stone.

However, he said that he would throw away all benefits of being a part of the royal family and not fight in the name of the One-horned tribe.

That was the Pledge of the Horn. Since the tribe was receiving the horn of the royal family, they needed to pay for its price. This was the reason why the tribe joined Cheonghwado’s side.

But even with that kind of pledge in place, the fact that they were forced into the war didn’t change. The tribe didn’t look too nicely at the Spear G.o.d. Also, because he was one that left the tribe for another group.

The Head Elder was one of these people who didn’t like him.

The Spear G.o.d took a big breath to calm himself down. The Martial King was staring at him with a smile, but didn’t say anything. The Spear G.o.d realized the Martial King wasn’t going to help him.

A memory from the past came to his mind. Before they were brothers, he was the person that he respected the most in the entire world, but he always felt far from him. He never showed his real thoughts.

So he established Cheonghwado with the Sword G.o.d who appeased him.

He didn’t regret that decision even today. That was why the Spear G.o.d was able to organize his thoughts so quickly.

“Sorry I interrupted your conference. Then, as Cheonghwado’s Spear G.o.d. As the person in charge. I have something to ask the Martial King.”

His voice cracked at the end.

“The events that occurred on this stage. The h.o.a.rder, Phante, and Edora’s conversion. Was the Martial King aware of this?”

The Martial King laughed as if he was amused.

“Well, of course. It would be bad if I didn’t know what my children and disciple were up to.”

The Spear G.o.d clenched his fists. His veins popped out.

“But how could you just watch….!”

“Because I wanted to.”

“You!”

“I said, because I wanted to.”

“…..!”

The Spear G.o.d felt like screaming. But he knew. No matter how much he complained, it wouldn’t work on this brother. Rather, he would try to do something through this opportunity.

The Martial King opened his eyes even wider as if he was proud that the Spear G.o.d was holding back his anger. His brother had matured over the years.

“What I do with my disciple and children is up to me. It’s unfortunate it affected Cheonghwado but…..it’s something we should take care of, not something for you to fix,”

“…..”

“Also, our tribe doesn’t interfere in individuals’ choices. Each person is responsible for their own actions, the tribe doesn’t need to be responsible.”

The Spear G.o.d was silent for a moment. The Martial King was saying that this was no different than when he left the tribe with the Sword G.o.d. But there was also another meaning behind his words. The Spear G.o.d narrowed his eyes.

“….So that means, if we meet the children during the war, we can kill them?”

“As I said, each person is responsible for their actions. We don’t interfere with that.”

“I’ll trust that you don’t take back what you just said.”

The Spear G.o.d glared at his brother and turned to leave.

Bang!

The building slightly shook at the strength of the door closing. The Martial King grinned.

“Well. I thought he had matured. But no one can do anything about that temper of his.”

The elders were silent. The Head Elder adjusted his gla.s.ses and asked the Martial King.

“So aside from Flanc. Tribe Leader, are you really planning on leaving Cain, Phante, and Edora alone?”

After Jang was pathetically destroyed, Phante was showing potential as the next King. He had also shown a lot of growth with the raid of Kuram.

But it was worrisome that he had gone over to the enemies. But the Martial King was the same as ever.

“The rule doesn’t change, old man.”

“Hm.”

The Head Elder narrowed his eyes at the Martial King and he chuckled.

“Becoming a vessel for a King after more struggles. That’s how you’re viewing the situation.”

The Martial King just smiled mysteriously. But the Head Elder was satisfied. Since he could tell how the Martial King was feeling even without words.

“Alright. As you wish, we won’t speak about this any longer. And moving onto the next item on the agenda. It’s about the….

Their conference continued.

“To the left. One step.”

“To the right. Sword.”

“Turn again.”

The mercenaries moved according to a cross-armed Phante.

Seeing the 250 of them move as one was a sight to behold. Even the other mercenaries paused to look.

Edora remembered that Yeon-woo had made a Mugong just like that in 4 days recently. She still couldn’t get used to this.

‘Phante is gonna pull his hair out again.’

Edora shook her head imagining Phante.

But there was something she was missing. Yeon-woo wasn’t memorizing Eight Extreme Fists, but incorporating into his Heaven Wing Mana Control.

‘Eight Extreme Fists in incredible as it is. But to use it with my Magic Circuit, a little adjustment is needed.’

This was only possible with the understanding of the Eight Extreme Fists, so it was surprising. But it was just something obvious to Yeon-woo.

He was receiving the help of the trait ‘Dragon’s Knowledge,’ and fixing it according to the flaws he saw with his Draconic Eyes.

But it was still a great feat that couldn’t be accomplished without motivation and tenacity.

So Yeon-woo was frequently seeing the same messages these days.

[The G.o.ds and demons of the 98th floor are observing you with interest.]

[A few G.o.ds and demons are discussing you with amus.e.m.e.nt.]

[Hermers is looking at you proudly.]

The fact that the G.o.ds and demons of the 98th floor were observing me. There was even a familiar name.

‘Hermes.’

He thought of Hermes, who he had met in the treasury, and shook his head. At first, the attention was cool, but now it was annoying.

Making the Eight Extreme Fists was even more important now. So as he was about to focus on his book.

“Oh. You seem to be getting on fine.”

Yeon-woo folded his book at someone’s presence, and turned his head in that direction.

It was familiar. Bahal smiled satisfactorily at Yeon-woo and the training of Team 2.

Everyone was fl.u.s.tered at the Supreme Commander’s sudden appearance. The mercenaries stood up straighter, and the team leaders quickly rushed over to greet him. But Bahal waved his hand as if saying it was unnecessary, and turned back to look at Yeon-woo.

“I heard you had a tight grasp on the mercenaries. You seem to be fitting in well.”

“Thank you.”

“Sure. how is it? Do you think you can jump in now?”

Yeon-woo’s eyes flashed in understanding. It was the order to start moving now that he had gotten the legion under his control.

‘That means it’s time to start.’

It was time to continue with his plan. Yeon-woo nodded his head without a trace of his thoughts on his face.

“We can move anytime.”

“Good. Then there’s a place you secretly…..”

“Before that, I actually have something to say.”

Instead of getting mad at Yeon-woo who dared to cut him off, Bahal showed curiosity. Yeon-woo was a lucky charm that brought interesting things his way. He was curious what he was going to pull out this time.

“Hm? What is it?”

Yeon-woo slowly opened his mouth.

“Did you know the Saber G.o.d’s son was staying on the 16th floor?”

“…..!”

Bahal’s eyes became bigger.
