Episode 102: King of the Dark Elves (5)
The weak are weeded out.
But not only the strong survive.
Ahn Ho-yeon exhaled lightly as he watched the blue flames seep out from the sword.
I ignored all the warning messages that rang loudly in my ears several times.
It is a skill prepared for the present.
Of course, I never meant to risk my life… It will be fine.
An elite knight’s head fled in the hands of An Ho-yeon, who fixed the sword.
Kell’s eyes narrowed.
Truly unbelievable, it was a swordsmanship that had risen to a phenomenal level.
The strongest S-class skill that can only be used by those who have reached the highest level in martial arts.
《The New Swordsman’s Day》.
When one reaches the highest level of swordsmanship, one becomes one with the sword.
However. This meant that his body became a weapon and was in a precarious state that could be broken at any time.
Because of this, Ahn Ho-yeon also vowed never to use this skill right after learning it until he could handle it properly.
But I used my skill. There were no regrets.
After Jaehyun left, the party endured for about 4 minutes.
If he was prepared to die for the remaining six minutes, he would be able to endure it.
“Focus on defense as much as possible. Even now, he is having a hard time.”
Ahn Ho-yeon said calmly.
The party just stared blankly at the back, looking shocked.
‘Did you say Kel? That guy is not a guy I can deal with who has opened the stage imperfectly now.
Right now, as Jaehyun said, buying time and aiming for a moment is the best.’
Perhaps reading Ahn Ho-yeon’s thoughts, Kell rushed along with one of the remaining elite knights.
It was because if I didn’t kill him now, I might have to endure a bigger loss.
Ahn Ho-yeon smiled lightly.
The enemy’s attack was so heavy that it was frightening, and every moment my muscles screamed.
Nevertheless, Ahn Ho-yeon silently crossed swords and constantly counterattacked.
One after another, the sword cut through the enemy’s vitals.
The blood that rose up soaked An Ho-yeon’s face and gray hair.
A drop of cold sweat ran down Kell’s face.
It was a very brief gap, but Kell saw Jae-hyun in Ahn Ho-yeon.
An arrogant human with crazy talent and magic that overwhelmed him a moment ago.
But he was a very special case among humans. So far, those who have stepped on the land of the Dark Elves are at an insignificant level even if they have magical powers.
But two humans with this kind of power appeared at once?
But Kell knew.
Ahn Ho-yeon is not on the same stage as Jae-hyun.
Deliberately, while exhausting his life force, he forcibly opened the realm.
This was obviously stupid.
“okay… I’ll admit that you have a number of secrets hidden. However, it will be self-sufficient. Foolish human!
Don’t you know that power is destroying your body? Sooner or later your body will be reduced to dust!”
“You’re dead and you won’t know even if you wake up.”
Ahn Ho-yeon smiled and held out his sword.
Kell’s eyes narrowed.
A sword attack that closed the distance in an instant.
Kell groaned and turned his body as the sword aimed directly at the nape of his neck.
Kell took a step back and managed to get the sword. Sparks flew between her sword and spear.
Kell was a bit nervous, but decided not to mind.
In the end, you are the one who wins in the end. That human’s strength is outside the standard, but his body continues to collapse.
After a while.
Ahn Ho-yeon, who was shooting a sword strike, bent his knees and vomited blood at the same time.
It wasn’t because of being attacked, it was a side effect of the body due to the <Unification of the New Sword>.
―The user’s body collapses.
-danger! Stop using your skills right now!
―All muscle fibers are cut!
―All blood vessels are twisted!
The system sound constantly in my ears.
However, Ahn Ho-yeon did not stop and continued the battle. Even knowing he was dying, he continued to clash his swords.
collide and collide again
And in the end.
‘now… body is the limit This is the last time.’
Ahn Ho-yeon, who intuited his end, poured out all the mana of his body.
A huge flow of energy created by substituting life permeated An Ho-yeon’s body, and soon gathered at the tip of the sword.
Ahn Ho-yeon did not hesitate and delivered the final blow to the enemy.
A single blow with the power to cut through Kell.
The earth shook, and waves of intense power were fired at the enemy as if the dungeon would collapse.
It was his subordinate, not Kell, who screamed.
Instead, the elite knight who was attacked looked up at Kell with regretful eyes, but Kell only smiled bitterly.
“Don’t worry. Because you were useful.”
“Dae, boss… Whoops!”
He knew that his sword could not pierce the enemy’s heart, but there was nothing more An Ho-yeon could do.
“cowardice… one… … .”
Ahn Ho-yeon lost consciousness and the strands of life began to break.
It seemed that my breath would stop at any moment, and the resounding heartbeat gradually died down.
Kell lowered the three-sword that he had shaped into An Ho-yeon before he knew it.
A stab aimed directly at the heart.
“Ah, An Ho-yeon!”
Crying and screaming from the group.
However, Hoyeon Ahn would never hear them.
The time when Ahn Ho-yeon was about to stop breathing.
The war situation has changed.
“What, what?! What is this all of a sudden… … !”
Kim Yoo-jung’s eyes narrowed and her heart beat faster.
Goo Goo Goo!
Power enough to feel a sense of awe pouring through the cracks of the party, who barely managed to hold on with their knees bent.
‘… I can not believe it. How can you get this kind of magic… … !’
Seo In-na also trembled at the magic she felt from the back with her mouth open.
The sound of words continued along with the air waves of magical power that raged without rest in the dungeon.
“Did you make these people like this?”
It was a familiar and perfectly welcome voice.
The owner of Yeonhwa, the No. 1 guild in Korea, and one of the best S-class radars in the world.
she arrived here
“say it. if so… … .”
A huge amount of magical energy overflows from Yoo Seong-eun’s body.
The river shook, and the floor sank.
‘What is this! I didn’t even feel the approach… how is this… … !’
Kell sighed and fell to the ground on his knees.
Yooseong smiled coldly.
* * *
“You are foolish. Are you saying you can deal with this many by yourself? With this Kais in front of you?”
“There’s nothing I can’t do.”
The king of the Dark Elves at Jaehyun’s rant. Kais’ face hardened.
Of course, I know that Jaehyun destroyed the guard post where my comrades are, but this is just an attack.
Does this stupid human think he can handle so many elite knights alone?
If so, it was an arrogant thought.
The people next to me now are not the remnants at the post, but elite knights trained to respond to enemy invasion. Even the number reaches thirty.
No matter how strong he is, it would be impossible to handle this many.
Kais concluded that Jaehyun was using tricks to pass the time.
“I don’t know what tricks they’re thinking, but the elite knights here will be hard to deal with alone. They are completely different from the thugs you killed earlier.”
Jaehyun laughed at Kais’ words.
“Can I say it again? you die here This fact does not change.”
“You are truly arrogant. human.”
“I heard that often. but isn’t that it? Everyone who said that is dead to me.”
Tsutsutsutsutsutsu… … !
In an instant, the magic power released from Jaehyun’s body rose up and filled the air.
In an instant, several elite knights fell to the ground choking.
Kais’ lips twitched.
“You’re doing tricks that aren’t human. However, since you slaughtered my people, he will be punished accordingly.”
“It’s what you all started with.”
A dark light shone in Jaehyun’s eyes.
Eyes tinged with gold.
The blazing magical energy began to spread heat by swirling here and there like a moth carrying a flame. It was the total amount of mana that Jaehyun could use to the limit.
“The guy who killed innocent people and tied them up and played with them as toys.”
Jaehyun’s gaze alternately looked at the dying cadets and Kais.
“Do you think you have a right to say that?”
“I won’t talk too long. Kill!”
However, the elite knights couldn’t move their bodies easily because of Jaehyun’s magical power.
“Useless things. Wake up right now!”
Along with Kais’s mantra, the elite knights who were suppressed by the magic of reappearance regained control over their bodies.
However, Jaehyun was already rapidly closing the distance.
Kais furrowed his brow and shouted at his subordinate.
“Don’t be afraid! He must be strong, he is only human!”
Kais thought while following Jaehyun’s movements with his eyes.
‘He’s a much stronger guy than he looks. But no problem. Judging by his movements, he’s a martial artist. With the elite knights and my magic, it’s a fight that can never be lost.’
But the next moment, his thoughts were completely denied.
―Active skill <Chain of Fire Demon> is activated.
* * *
Kell could only tremble as he bent his knees at the magical energy that suppressed the atmosphere.
It was incomprehensible to him.
what the heck is that man?
It was already the third encounter with the monster today alone.
Min Jae-hyun, Ahn Ho-yeon, Yoo Seong-eun… All are mere humans.
They were only objects of slaughter that were nothing more than food to them.
but… Why did this happen?
“Keugh… What are you! How can such strong magic… … !”
“I will ask again. Those people, did you make them like that?”
Yoo Seong-eun said, pointing to Park Seong-jae, who lost consciousness after losing his arm, and Ahn Ho-yeon, whose blood was distorted.
Kell’s pupils shook violently.
‘You can never win. He’s a completely different enemy from that guy earlier… … !’
Kell quickly distanced himself from Yoo Seong-eun while holding a sword shaped like magic.
‘If I take those guys hostage, I’ll have a chance somehow!’
Kell thought while provoking with a fishy laugh.
“Yes. Those humans are my masterpiece.”
“You mean that too?”
Yoo Seong-eun started to approach the fallen Park Seong-jae and his party with cold eyes.
She first looked at Seongjae Park’s left arm. Naturally, the brow furrowed.
‘Wounds caused by surprise. It’s a cowardly move.’
Next was Ahn Ho-yeon.
‘I was forced to use power that I couldn’t handle. I must have overused the skill beyond the critical point. Was it that much of a crowd?’
Either way, the state was nonsense.
Yoo Seong-eun sighed lightly.
Soon after, the eyes shone from the two cold eyes. Yoo Seong-eun, who immediately drew out magic, began to heal the wounds of the party by using the nascent magic.
―Activate the active skill 《Sacrifice》.
―Recovers multiple targets at the same time.
―Depletes the user’s vitality.
The stamina of those who had lost their will to fight returned with the continuous sound of the system.
A very brief moment. But I definitely noticed them.
‘Sacrifice… He’s restoring everyone neatly in this short moment.’
‘I can not believe it… Are you saying this is really possible?’
‘… Is this the S-class radar?’
Leaving the shocked people behind, this time I turned my steps in the direction of Kell.
Kell was horrified.
‘There was no time to take hostages. But you used recovery magic so quickly? what is this… … !’
Yoosung started walking toward Kell with a kind smile.
“I had no intention of dealing with monsters anyway.”
“… … !”
“A healer heals an injured person, even if it is an enemy. by the way.”
Kell, who felt the shocking magic power to blow his mind away, stepped back and shouted.
“Wait, wait… … .”
“I don’t like touching my people.”
It was a very brief moment.
I raised my hand up and then just put it down.
It was difficult to see that Yoo Sung-eun’s motion itself had a great meaning.
However, the results derived from it were truly staggering. Kell’s upper body, which was trying to stop the explosion, was blown away.
In an instant, Kell’s body was reduced to powder, and he died.
‘… How the hell… … !’
Kim Yoo-jung was shocked and shivered.
Seo In-na gulped down her saliva and looked at Yoo Seong-eun, who was unable to capture the hideous mana.
‘… that’s not a skill I just condensed his mana and shot it straight to explode my enemy. … But is that really possible?’
It was a shocking sight that I couldn’t believe even if I saw it with my own eyes.
Others had the same reaction as her.
Yoosung said calmly.
“Even if your arm is a sacrifice, it will take time to put it back on. The same goes for Hoyeon. It will take a few days to wake up.”
“Can I get better?”
“of course. Sacrifice is a unique skill. Rather… Where is Jaehyun?”
“… ah. that is… … .”
Silence passed. A breathless silence lingers between the party.
Anxiety is clearly engraved in Yoo Sung-eun’s head. The party was confused and couldn’t come up with an answer quickly.
The obvious expression of guilt on his face.
I hope so.
“Jaehyun died… !”
“no. The Ann… Jaehyun Min went to catch the boss monster alone!”
“… help. Yoosung really needs CEO’s strength.”
Joo Sung-chan and Ha Yeon-joo lowered their heads and said.
At those words, Yoo Seong-eun’s face softened a little.
Somehow, he’s not the kind of guy who would abandon his friends. Something was strange.
Yoosung smiled and said.
“Don’t worry, Jaehyun will still be fine. Oh by the way, you can rest assured that all the monsters in this area have been dealt with.”
At that, everyone was shocked.
Did you know how many demons there were and dealt with them all?
Kim Yoo-jung intervened among the distracted people and said.
“… Ha, but you went to catch the boss monster alone. I wonder if Min Jae-hyun will really be okay… … .”
Yooseong smiled and said.
“Jaehyun is stronger than I thought. At least not in a place like this.”
In the first place, Jaehyun has an extremely powerful skill that can destroy other people’s magic.
Yooseong crossed his arms and raised his lips.
Dark elves are magic beasts that deal with enemies based on magic.
At least as long as you don’t run out of mana.
Jaehyun never dies to anyone.
