The martial arts users in the iron masks used the martial arts of prestigious academies and clans, yet their identities were unknown.
Their presence shocked the warriors of Yulin.
There was only one thing they all guessed.
‘Is it possible that they all lost their way?’
Moyong Yeon, who saw the face of Saint Gu-jung from the cracked iron mask, speculated the same thing as the others.
But even if they guessed, there was no way for them to prove it or get answers.
Dealing with the warriors of the Demonic cult was daunting, and now they had to break through at all costs.
However, they soon fell into serious trouble.
Half of the iron masked warriors had already been killed by Chun Yeowun.
Even if the great clan’s techniques were being used, the result didn’t change.
No one in the iron masks could use more than three strikes.
‘That man is not human. We need to find the warriors and move.’
If things kept going like this, it would be the worst outcome for everyone.
There was a conspiracy plotted by the Blade God Six Martial clan, and instead of digging into the depths of the plot, they would get annihilated since Yulin took out their weapons towards the Demonic Cult they had formed an alliance with.
‘This isn’t it. This has to be stopped right away.’
Moyong Yeon stopped fighting and hurriedly headed towards Moyong Kang.
On the other hand, the middle-aged man of the Blade God Six Martial clan, Byeok Liu, was looking into the cave in shock.
He stuck his tongue out as he thought.
‘How is he able to fight against the Spirit Squad…’
A combat unit that had been built after a painstakingly long time in the Blade God Six Martial clan.
They were created for the sole purpose of battle, and the squad was completed after ten years of gathering famous masters of Jianghu.
‘Th-the Demon God, it’s impossible.’
They never dreamed that the Lord of the Demonic Cult would come to the North.
If he hadn’t come, the Blade God Six Martial clan would have been able to annihilate the North Sea Ice Palace warriors with just 20 members of the Spirit Squad.
He should have listened to the Blade Lord, who only asked them to get the core and withdraw.
It was only a matter of time before they all get annihilated by Chun Yeowun.
He didn’t know if any of them were from the Demonic Cult, but till now, Chun Yeowun killed every one of the iron-masked masters without hesitation.
‘Please, I hope it’s done.’
After running for a while, Byeok Liu reached the end of the cave.
An amazing sight was at the end.
There was the shell of a giant turtle, the size of a small mountain, and more heinous and bigger than the three heads of the dragon was one head, which was lying on the floor.
The corpse of the dragon which was trying to escape.
A strong lightning shock surged upwards from the top of the dragon’s shell, which looked like a mountain.
Only the middle part of the shell had been opened, and something unusual seemed to be happening outside. Everything seemed to be filled with sparks.
Near the dragon, the Slaughter Blade Master was moving, dismantling the parts of the dragon.
Then a middle-aged man with a goatee approached Byeok Liu, who was running.
He was Woo Jin-chang, one of the Six Martial Masters.
He asked Byeok Liu, who lost one arm.
“How come you are here alone? Don’t tell me, you got into trouble with Yulin and the North Sea Ice Palace?”
“As if that could happen!”
After responding sharply, Byeok Liu glared at another middle-aged man in white fur.
He was Won Sang-ho, the 6th elder of the Ice Palace.
However, his true identity was Won Sang-ho, one of the masters of the Blade God Six Martial clan, who was sent to the North as a spy many years ago.
“What were you doing all this while! Master!”
Byeok Liu shouted at Won Sang-ho, who was puzzled.
“That damn Chun Yeowun, he is supposed to be recovering from the hit he took from the dragon, so how did he appear down here?”
“Wh-what? No way! I saw it with my own two eyes and saw that the Lord of the Demonic cult was in trouble. He was hit by the lightning of the three dragon heads at the same time, how can he be fine…”
Only after confirming that, Won Sang-ho informed the other people.
Believing that, they all went into the process of dismantling the dragon and fighting the Yulin.
“In the hands of that demon, more than half of them are dead, can you come up with an excuse for what happened? Just look at that scene… Kuka!”
As his arm went numb, Byeok Liu touched the cloth pressing on his wound.
Woo Jin-chang, who recognized the seriousness of the news that half of the Spirit squad was dead, spoke.
“It looks like it will be impossible for the squad to take down the demon.”
Initially, the purpose of the spirit squad was predetermined.
It was to eliminate the remaining power of the Yulin and Ice Palace.
“Slaughter Blade Master?”
Byeok Liu asked while looking at the sparks flashing from the dragon’s shell.
To that, Woo Jin-chang shook his head and answered.
“Haa… this can’t be.”
Byeok Liu sighed.
The Slaughter Blade Master was a greedy person, enough to covet the core of the Spirit Beast for himself.
He was rejecting the request to retreat or get reinforcements for the sake of obtaining the core.
If it wasn’t for the warriors he brought along, he would never be able to break the body of the dragon.
If only the Blade Lord found out that one of the Six Martial Masters was hiding his ambition, Byeok Liu wondered how he would react.
‘Even If he really absorbs the core facing Chun Yeowun would still be impossible. I can’t understand what that man is thinking. Is he planning on using the Demon God as an excuse?’
Rather, they were supposed to be thinking about how they’re going to get out of the hands of the demon.
Byeok Liu asked what he was originally going to ask.
“Are the adjustments finished?”
At those words, Woo Jin-chang answered with a look of relief.
“Fortunately, it has been completed.”
“That’s good. Hurry before the demon gets here…”
Before Byeok Liu could finish speaking, a pounding sound entered their ears.
At the familiar sound, his face went stiff.
Byeok Liu turned back into the cave and looked at it with intense eyes.
Something flashed in the dark; white eyes seemed to approach them with great speed.
“W-what is that?”
Woo Jin-chang, the Blade Master, who knew nothing about it, asked Byeok Liu.
“Now isn’t the time to discuss it. The enemy is approaching us! Stop what you’re doing and get into formation!”
Visor! Visor! Rrrrng!
At Byeok Liu’s cry, the people who were busy dismantling the dragon stopped what they were doing and pulled out their swords from their waists in perfect harmony.
Eventually, the creature flying through the air emitting white light arrived at where the dragon’s corpse was.
Chun Yeowun, in the black Nano suit, knelt on one knee as he landed on the ground from a great height.
A thrilling scene for those who saw it.
Tension was visible in the eyes of those who belonged to the Slaughter Blade Master’s unit.
The helmet of the armor scattered away, revealing his face.
Long hair, white face, and sharp eyes.
Undoubtedly, the Demon God.
‘Nano. If we land like this, we will end up getting attacked.’
Because it flies using a magnetic field, Chun Yeowun left the landing to Nano.
Fortunately, the opponents were all too tense to move when they saw Chun Yeowun.
Nano said something incomprehensible.
[The Nano suit’s flight landing is a widely used superhero landing. It is used for suppression of energy.]
‘… it isn't bad to land on my knees before regaining my balance. But don’t.’
Chun Yeowun shook his head as he got up from one knee.
Despite the presence of more than a hundred people, everything was silent.
Such overwhelming power he held.
No matter how large the number was, not a single person moved to attack.
“Blade God Six Martial clan. There is no place for you guys to go.”
Chun Yeowun was making fun of them.
The Demonic Cult, Yulin and Ice Palace were all on the other side.
Glancing at the dragon’s shell, Chun Yeowun spoke to them.
“If you aim for someone else’s thing, you always have to pay a price.”
Intense energy began to emanate from his body, along with tremendous fear rising in the opponents.
There was no way that they could withstand the energy from someone who was in Divine Master level.
The Slaughter Blade Master’s people lost their fighting spirit before even clashing swords with Chun Yeowun until Byeok Liu hurriedly shouted.
“Demon God! Will you really be able to act like this against us?”
Byeok Liu took a bell and shook it.
Someone slowly walked out of one corner of the cave.
The one coming in was wearing the same iron mask as those who fought Chun Yeowun in the entrance.
If anything, this one's energy seemed a lot messier.
His clothes were almost at the level of rags, and entire body was covered in marks.
“Take off your mask.”
At Byeok Liu’s ring and command, the man in the iron mask took it off.
The face of an old man with gray hair, white eyebrows, and a long white beard.
As he saw the face and body full of scars, Chun Yeowun’s face hardened.
Even if he never saw the face, maybe it was because he shared the same blood?
Chun Yeowun could instinctively sense who the old man was.
“Kahhahahahaha! I guess you recognize him. Your grandfather, Chun Inji.”
The identity of the man whose eyes looked dead.
The former lord of the Demonic Cult, Chun Inji.
He was the one who handed Baekhyun his identity slate.
‘Thank god. The adjustment was done on time.’
Byeok Liu felt relieved.
Looking at Chun Yeowun’s reaction, his plan worked.
I didn’t bring this man to use him this way, but it turned out to be helpful.
‘I have no idea how he managed to survive, but I am really lucky. Kukuku!’
They entered the frozen ice cave where the dragon had been sealed, and they found the former lord, Chun Inji, freezing to death.
They managed to get a report on what happened inside the cave and found out about how he escaped; they talked to him about the medication they bought and used it on him.
And they succeeded just in time.
‘Even if he is a merciless Demon God, can he really kill his own blood and flesh?’
Even great masters showed weakness in front of their own blood.
This spirit member was strong in action, and they were created for only one reason.
Feeling glad, Byeok Liu exclaimed.
“Demon God. I am warning you. If you try to resist a single attack from him, your grandfather’s head will burst, and he’ll die.”
Chun Yeowun’s eyebrows rose at Byeok Liu’s warning.
He was the one who received the report from Baekhyun, and he had doubts on why Chun Inji was wearing a mask and sided with the Blade God Six Martial clan.
But it turned out that there was no siding.
‘… is this the reason why they managed to find out that there was the sword technique of their clan in the academy?’
The most curious secret had been unfolded.
Except for the guardians and Chun Yeowun, the only one who knew about the hidden treasure was Chun Inji, the one who gave up his position 20 years ago.
“Give him a sword.”
At Byeok Liu’s order, one of the members threw a sword.
Chun Inji, who received it, pulled the sword up with an indifferent look.
And that wasn’t all.
The warriors looked at Byeok Liu, waiting for orders to fall.
“Release sword qi!”
Woong! Woong! Woong!
Once the order fell, energy was emitted from the swords of a hundred warriors.
The warriors under the Slaughter Sword Master were all Superior Masters and skilled.
With a smile, Byeok Liu warned.
“Move even a little, and it’s all over for you.”
He was a thorough man.
In addition to the members of the slaughter squad, there were four Blade Masters, and a blue qi was radiating from all their swords, ready to attack.
“With that sword, you will kill your grandson, the Demon God, no! The strongest man in Demonic Cult right now!”
At that command, Chun Yeowun’s eyes turned cold.
‘Hahaha! Bloody person.’
On the other hand, Byeok Liu’s mouth raised wickedly.
He couldn’t hide the satisfaction that he cornered Chun Yeowun, the greatest enemy of their clan, with his own hands.
If he could kill Chun Yeowun, the Blade Lord would recognize his effort.
If he did well, maybe he would have a chance to surpass everyone and rise to a new level.
However, Chun Inji, who seemed dead in the eyes, had convulsions all over his body and refused to obey commands.
As soon as the bell rang, one was bound to obey orders.
‘How the hell is he rejecting a command from the technique that has been perfected after ten years?’
Byeok Liu frowned.
Even if his body refuses, the worm in his head will force him to move.
The bell in his hand ran twice.
“Kill your grandson!”
Chun Inji, who refused the command, slowly moved as the veins on his forehead stood up.
A blue hue on his sword.
He, who unfolded a sword technique, was aiming his sword at Chun Yeowun.
And the sword technique was,
‘Sky Demon Sword.’
The strongest sword which former Lord Chun Inji could unfold.
There were only two people who learned it, Chun Inji and the second generation Chun Ma.
Chow chow chow chow chow!
Twenty-four types of swords seemed like they were exquisitely rushing for Chun Yeowun, who didn’t move.
The power of the Sky Demon Sword, which is known to be the strongest in the Demonic Cult.
Chow chow chow!
The energy spread in all directions as the sword kept on unfolding, the sword was strong enough to crack the floor below.
Looking at how Chun Yeowun didn’t even move a muscle, the masters of the Blade God Six Martial clan and Byeok Liu were joyful.
Chow chow chow chow chow!
A flashy sword pierced Chun Yeowun’s body in an instant.
At that moment, an amazing thing happened.
As soon as the sword pierced him, Chun Yeowun’s body turned into an afterimage and scattered.
“Illusion? That bastard! I warned him not to move!”
Byeok Liu, realizing that Chun Yeowun avoided the sword, rang the bell three times.
Tring! Tring! Tring!
If the bell is shaken three times with a certain injection of energy, it will self-destruct the brain, and the spirit squad member will kill himself.
At that very moment, Chun Yeowun grabbed the head of the former lord, Chun Inji.
Woo Jin-chang, who realized that Chun Yeowun was up to something, shouted at the warriors.
Chow chow chow chow chow!
As soon as orders fell, a hundred sword qi’s flew towards Chun Yeowun.
In the aftermath of numerous sword qi’s flying towards him, dust rose everywhere.
Without stepping back, the men began to attack Chun Yeowun from a distance with the help of sword qi.
Chow chow chow chow!
After attacking for a while, Woo Jin-chang felt a subtle energy.
It didn’t feel like the qi had cut something down.
Rather, it was as if the qi was stuck in something.
Then came the sound of a deafening scream.
Byeok Liu looked at the dust, which gathered with a puzzled expression as if the sound of someone being electrocuted was heard.
Frustrated, he waved his hand towards the dust.
The wind created by the internal energy calmed the dust, which was obscuring their vision.
Crackle! Crackle! Crackle!
The moment he saw it, his eyes trembled.
Around Chun Yeowun, a large circular shield covered with lightning and sparks was protecting him.
“Lightning qi? H-how?”
What was even more absurd was that the former Lord Chun Inji, whose head should have exploded, fainted.
Seeing that his body twitched, he didn’t die.
“No-no way! The order wasn’t triggered! How could this happe…”
Once activated, the host's brain had to explode. At least, if not explode, the brain is supposed to burn.
It can only be canceled by killing the worm inside the head, which is impossible.
Chun Yeowun brushed his long hair aside as he sighed.
[5% of energy consumed. Removing shield.]
Nano’s voice resounded, and the protective shield disappeared right away.
When the shield disappeared, Chun Yeowun spoke with a cold voice, which bewildered everyone in the place.
“Kill your grandson? Ha!”
As soon as he said that, cold energy engulfed the entire cave.
The soldiers looked around as the yin energy exuded by Chun Yeowun made it hard for them to breathe.
“Oh… my god…”
The reason was, an uncountable number of ice swords filled the space.
At first glance, it seemed like there were hundreds of them.
A chill ran down their spines.
Their eyes, which knew that they were pushed into the corner by the Demon God, trembled in fear and terror, losing their will to fight.
Byeok Liu mumbled with a pale face.
Chun Yeowun sentenced everyone to death.
As soon as the words were finished, the ice sword filling the space ran towards the warriors as if they were waiting for the order.
Chow chow chow chow chow chow!
