Episode 386: Asgard Infiltration Plan
“so… You mean Hugin killed Heimdall and took away his dignity? now?”
Jaehyun’s embarrassing voice resonated emptyly in the circle room.
It was an absurd story indeed.
Now, after going through the 5th trial, I got the 4th level of liberation.
From now on, he was going to deal with the gods in earnest and announce the start of Ragnarok, but the news like now was not very welcome.
In war, one must be able to clearly distinguish between allies and enemies.
If that is not the case, there is a high possibility that it will collapse from within.
For these reasons.
Jaehyun has always been careful not to put himself in such a situation. No matter how much you believe, you can hit the back at any time.
It was the same with the radar system before the regression that he tried to survive.
It was a moment of happiness after obtaining the only mythical item at the time.
In the meantime, Jaehyun had to hide the items he had obtained from other raiders. Like an old lion being chased by a hyena after a hard hunt for its prey.
Jaehyun had to work hard to keep what he deserved. That’s what has endured in a natural place.
That’s why, now, Jae-Hyun thought it was necessary to identify friends and family a little more clearly.
Who is the ally and who is the enemy?
‘Of course, no matter how you think about it, Hugin is the enemy. That fact won’t change even if a knife is inserted into his throat.’
It wasn’t anyone else, it was the one who killed my mother.
Jae-Hyun was thinking of killing Hugin under any circumstances.
‘You can’t change people.’
Jaehyun was neither young nor foolish because he believed in the sweet story that anyone can change if he puts his mind to it.
Because of this, Jaehyun was able to draw conclusions right away.
“It means that there are two forces we have to deal with. Hugin may have other forces besides Asgard.”
“… It’s definitely a story with potential. But why did Hugin do such a thing… .”
It was strange.
No matter how much I thought about Hugin’s judgment, it was difficult to understand.
It is true that Jaehyun has recently become stronger and has started to put pressure on Odin little by little, but the game of the second Ragnarok has not completely changed yet.
At most, Heimdall and Thor’s two sons had deserted the front. Asgard was still far ahead in the war.
In such a situation, why create another force?
Abandon Odin, the trusty loser?
“It will be one of two things. Either you’ve already decided to stick with the other side, or… … Either move according to your firm beliefs.”
Jaehyun’s words were persuasive enough. Whatever it is now, one thing is certain.
That there is something going on in Asgard that they don’t understand.
If you don’t figure it out, you might face a difficult situation in the war later.
Everyone is silent for a moment.
Kwon So-yul crossed his arms and said.
“So what is the best decision we can make now? You can’t sneak into Asgard right now like a spy… ?”
“oh! Is that a good idea?”
Jaehyun calmly affirmed her words.
Ahn Ho-yeon’s heart sank. He didn’t say anything, but everyone else’s expressions were the same.
“I don’t mean that seriously… ?”
Jaehyun’s colleagues had a hunch. In a situation where Jaehyun made that kind of expression, no matter what they said, nothing would change.
At that moment, Jaehyun was thinking.
‘I don’t know what happened, but anyway, before the war is properly fought, Asgard must be visited. If it’s best to catch them off guard, that’s what I’m going to do.’
If every time he swooped in from there and made this side a mess, this time it was Jaehyun who was thinking of returning it the other way around.
Maybe this time I might be able to see Odin.
But Jaehyun wasn’t afraid.
He believed in the strength he had accumulated so far.
* * *
[…] … So you’re going to invade Asgard right now?]
Jormungandr looked at Jaehyun with a rare expression of astonishment. He was completely different from the usual jokester.
The reason was simple. It was because what Jaehyun had just said was so insane.
“It is as he said. He might encounter Odin, but he’s going to Asgard… . Do you know what you are talking about?”
It was Jaehyun who responded coolly to Smir’s words.
He urgently called for a regular meeting of Hel yesterday, and he has just delivered his plan to the gods and giants.
This time, on rare occasions, Idun and Nidhogg were also present.
Nidhogg had a polymorph. He had his arms crossed with an uncomfortable look on his face.
According to what I heard later, Nidhogg is strong, but the polymorph skills are not very good. Maybe that’s why my body is getting smaller and I’m uncomfortable.
Anyway, the place where the main axis of almost all anti-Aesir forces except for Loki gathered. The story Jaehyun brought out there was a shocking declaration.
[I will head to Asgard.]
It was probably normal for the president to flip over at those words.
Jaehyun said calmly.
“Didn’t you tell me before? Anyway, I have to go to Asgard at least once. They say we have to rescue the ‘Pray’ that is being held there.”
The story of a new god that hadn’t been mentioned yet leaked out of Jaehyun’s mouth.
He is the older brother of Freya, the leader of the Valkyries, and was one of the strongest of the anti-Aesir faction who is said to have a magic sword.
However, he is said to be imprisoned in Asgard’s prison. The reason is, it was because he was excessively active during the first Ragnarok.
Odin imprisoned him for disobeying his orders.
Also, he made Freya his limb and used her for war.
Hel laughed incredulously.
“What are you going to do if you go there alone? As I said beforehand, we can’t move properly yet. In terms of troops, we are still far behind.”
“You’re not going to get hurt, you’re going to save me? He said he also needed to convince Freya. Then it’s better to move now than later.
Moreover… We also need to find out what Hugin is up to.”
There was nothing wrong with Jaehyun’s words.
Originally the gods of Vanaheim, Freya and Frey hated Asgard.
According to what Jaehyun had heard from them in the past, Freya also supported the anti-Aesir faction in the past.
But why is she now on the side of Aesir?
Will that be a reason to abandon a subordinate who is blindly loyal to him?
Jaehyun clearly remembered the last words she said in the fight against Sigrun.
[Mrs. Freya… sorry… .]
As he repeated those words, he couldn’t forget the image of Sigrun dying while standing.
‘Maybe Freya has something hidden. It would be a good idea to take this opportunity to understand them as much as possible.’
Of course, there was another giant to meet before that.
But I decided not to say this to them.
Anyway, in the case of Hella, she has to stay here and help with the work. Moving quietly would be just right without being noisy.
“Then I know that everyone knows that. Well, don’t worry too much. I am pretty strong now.”
There was no one left to refute Jaehyun’s words.
Now, his skills are unmatched. above two. With the exception of Odin and Loki, it was harder to lose one-on-one with anyone else.
Didn’t he actually win against Fenrir?
“huh! Then cheer up!”
At Idun’s words, Nidhogg scratched the bridge of his nose and accepted the words.
“Do something well.”
[Haha, don’t worry. Aren’t you the one who defeated me? If it’s an adversary, I’ll come back alive somehow.]
From there, he sneakily helped Fenrir. Then Hel sighed and touched her forehead, and Jormungandr, who had been watching the situation behind her for a moment, noticed her and clicked her cunning tongue.
[You should know. That there are countless people’s poems in the world. And each story has its own meaning… That your story shouldn’t end here.]
“For some reason, Jormungandr, you say all the right things… .”
It was the moment Jaehyun wanted to admire.
[In that sense. Do you know what the most real poem is called?]
Anxious gazes began to fill all over the place.
Jaehyun let out a deep sigh.
Then, Jormungandr seemed to have been waiting for this silence.
[That’s ‘cereal’. Haha, this time, my humor collection finally reached 40 volumes, and I thought of it as a commemoration. How is it?]
“Please shut up.”
Jaehyun wanted to put up with it a lot and finally let out some pretty harsh words from his mouth.
It must be pretty strong now… .
It was because I thought that it would be okay to change a little bit.
Even though Jormungandr laughed at the words of reenactment, he said.
* * *
“Then I will go. Please keep this side well for now.”
Jaehyun looked at his colleagues as he packed his things with a calm expression.
Nine members were looking at Jaehyun with somewhat uncomfortable expressions. It was to come out to meet him, but the reason is that his eyes are bloody.
Maybe it’s because I didn’t bring myself.
But Jaehyun couldn’t help it.
It is difficult for the members except for themselves to survive in Asgard yet. At most, Seo Ina would be able to endure it.
However, since I was going to take only one person with me, I thought it would be better to coordinate with my colleagues and test the performance of the newly acquired item.
Because of this, Jaehyun and Poppy are on this journey.
And I decided to take only Kim Yoo-jung with me.
“… But why are you taking Yoo-jung with you?”
If you look at all your strength, take yourself or Ahn Ho-yeon, isn’t it right?
Seo Ina was asking such a reasonable question.
However, Jaehyun shook his head.
“It is impossible for Kim Yu-jeong to deal with anyone there. The reason I take Kim Yu-jung is because of her buff skills and soul link.”
Jaehyun definitely drew a line.
Seo Eana bit her lip a little, but tried not to worry any more. What can I do? Jaehyun is saying that.
“Bye. We will do our best on our own.”
I exchanged a brief greeting with Ahn Ho-yeon. The rest of the members did the same.
Kwon So-yul asked if it would be okay if he didn’t follow, but he said that it was an approximate route and that there was no problem because he knew it after receiving guidance from the meeting.
In fact, there weren’t any problems, but Kwon So-yul wasn’t that strong.
It is an unavoidable situation now.
You have to find your own way.
“Take this too. It’s still a beta version… It’s better not to drink it, but… … .”
“Is that the potion you asked for before?”
Jae-hyun said while receiving a potion from Lee Jae-sang.
The potion handed over was an incredibly brilliant golden color, and it seemed that at least one bottle would cost hundreds of billions of won.
Well, it’s absurd to put a value on it because you can’t buy it.
Perhaps, if the worst situation comes in Asgard this time, this potion will save him once. It was a kind of extra life.
Jaehyun nodded and turned around.
Kim Yoo-jung grumbled with her hands in her pockets and looked behind him.
Eventually, by the time the party was all far away, Kim Yoo-jung opened her mouth in a small voice.
“Is it really true that you are going to meet him?”
“Designer of the Nornir System. Mimir, I need to meet the giant in person.”
