It was no exaggeration to call the martial arts of the Blade God Six Martial Clan the best in Wulin.

The reason that their martial arts are so strong is that they deviate from the general principles and go beyond the limits of human muscles and joints.

And if one reached perfection in the Extreme Art of the Blade God, then even the Sky Demon Sword is inferior.

Despite that, the Sky Demon Sword was far superior in reality and even displayed power higher than the Extreme Art of the Blade God.

‘Is he combining both the methods of the Sky Demon Sword and the Extreme Art of the Blade God? Isn’t that a monster like a founder?’


It refers to the founding of a clan and martial arts.

Learning martial arts and creating them were two different things.

‘Something has to be wrong. Is he the Demon God I really know? I was told that such a thing was definitely farther in the future…’

It was very different from the contents left in the legacy of ‘that person’ that the Blade Lord talked about.

Everything which had been thoroughly prepared for a long time based on the legacy seemed out of whack.

If one cog brakes, the subsequent parts would eventually fail.

‘Blade Lord must know about this. This sword technique is too dangerous.’

He spent a long time studying methods of destroying sword techniques.

However, if a new sword technique was born, then they were in for the worse.



The section where his arm was severed was hot.

The loss of energy was too great.

He thought he should inform their lord, but there was no way out.

As if losing his right arm wasn’t enough, a hole was drilled into his left shoulder, and maybe something was wrong in the blood vessel of his left arm since he couldn’t move it.

His victory or defeat will be decided by the fact that both his arms couldn’t be used.

‘Is this the end?’

He lost the moment he got drunk on his own power and arrogance.

Even if he couldn’t fully embody the core of the dragon, he thought that he would be on equal footing with Chun Yeowun.

It was the moment when he was about to fall into despair.



The veins and muscles on the left shoulder of Sang Dal, which were open, trembled.

He looked at it with a bitter expression, and the trembling veins continued to regenerate.


Sang Dal was shocked by what he saw.

He knew that the core had regenerative power, but seeing it was amazing.

He had no idea that the recovery would be so quick.

‘Unbelievable! This is the level of regenerative power?’

Sang Dal’s expression, who lost his fighting spirit, changed.

The pierced part regenerated quickly, and the strength in his arms returned.


The severed right arm hadn’t regenerated, but being able to use one arm brought in a glimmer of hope.

But there was no time.


Pssss! Pssss! Pssss!

Water began to flow in from small cracks in the ice wall.

The speed of the water seemed faster than before, so fast that within a couple seconds, the water reached their ankles.


It was not an environment where they could fight anymore.

‘The cave will be buried soon. No more wasting of time. If I don’t escape quickly…’


At that moment, in the eyes of Sang Dal, who could see that he was releasing thunder qi, looked at the water.

‘The thunder qi, I released it by accident… ah!’

Suddenly, an excellent idea popped into Sang Dal’s mind.

The only way for him to escape and kill Chun Yeowun.

Step! Step!

Chun Yeowun, who stood still, began to move again.

Sang Dal’s eyes gleamed.


Sang Dal gathered all of the thunder qi in his body.

Ready to release, he waited for Chun Yeowun to come to the place where more water was on the ground with tense eyes.


Chun Yeowun’s form turned blurry as he narrowed the distance in an instant.

That moment, he entered the place where there was more water,

“I waited for this! Demon God!”


As soon as he said that, a tremendous amount of lightning raged.

The lightning, which flowed out through the water, filled the entire cave with sparks.

The sparks were so bright that even Sang Dal couldn’t see what was happening.


Chun Yeowun’s body, which stepped into stagnant water, was covered by intense lightning.

Since it was lightning, it felt like Chun Yeowun would burn down.


A smile spread across Sang Dal’s face.

“Kuaahahaha! This is my victory. You will burn in the thunder qi and turn into soot.”

Sang Dal kept pushing out thunder qi.

It meant a lot if he could kill Chun Yeowun.


The figure of Chun Yeowun covered in sparks.

It looked like the armor was burning.

‘Kuk, no matter how strong he is…’

It was then.

Step! Step! Plop! Plop!

There was the sound of armor treading in puddles.

The whole area was filled with lightning flashes and sounds of thunder.

“He survived this? No way. This can’t…”

Something black was approaching him.

The glare from the two eyes of the armor looked creepy as hell.

[Charged 250%]

[Charged 255%]

[Charged 260%]

The white particles in the augmented reality of Chun Yeowun, who was walking through the water, increased.


Chun Yeowun’s face, which was hidden in the Nano Suit, turned into a smile.

Unfortunately for Sang Dal, his calculations turned out wrong.

The reason Chun Yeowun had stopped for a while was because he absorbed the qi through the Nano Suit.

And now, the Gatelinium was readily accepting the thunder qi.


“How! Why is it not working!”



The thunder qi he pulled out with all his might was of no avail.

Chun Yeowun stood right in front of him, breaking through the water.

Sang Dal, who lost his courage, looked at Chun Yeowun in disbelief.

“Yo-you are a monster…”


Before he could finish speaking, Chun Yeowun grabbed him by the neck.


He placed his right palm on Sang Dal’s chest.

Even amid the pain, he knew what Chun Yeowun was about to do. The black particles in the Nano Suit trembled.


‘Th-this is?’

Sky Demon energy rose from the suit and soon enveloped Chun Yeowun’s entire body, and this time he didn’t even look like a human figure in the Nano Suit, he looked like a demon from hell.

It was as if he saw the ferocity of a demon.

“Throw out what you stole.”

“Kuk… kuk, what?”

The moment he wondered what Chun Yeowun was saying, Sky Demon energy entered his body.



Such shocking things.

As the Sky Demon energy entered his body, the dragon’s core in his body got engulfed helplessly.

“M-My strength… Kuak.”

The greedy Sky Demon energy began to swallow it.

Since his body and Nano had already adjusted to the thunder qi, there was no hesitation in absorbing it.

‘As expected.’

It was just like how the cold qi and the flame qi were absorbed.

He didn’t know why, but the Sky Demon energy had great absorbing skills.

It was like it had some absorption technique.

“Kuaaaak! Pl-please! Stop…”

As the thunder qi began to disappear, Sang Dal became helpless. He pleaded again and again, to no avail.

‘My strength! My power… ugh!’

All of the thunder qi in his body was taken away.


Chun Yeowun felt the thunder qi entering his body.

It was permanent qi, not just temporary qi like before.

It was then.



At the sound of cracks, Chun Yeowun looked at the ice wall.

The ice wall was barely holding on. It could no longer withstand the pressure and was about to collapse.


Crack! Splash!

Chun Yeowun broke Sang Dal’s neck and threw him into the water.

The dream of Sang Dal, who was trying to achieve his ambition by obtaining the core, ended with death.

‘I need to hurry!’

Chun Yeowun hurriedly moved to the dragon shell.

The core of the dragon, which was still radiating the thunder qi, gave off a brilliant light from the shell.



No ordinary person would be able to touch the core, but Chun Yeowun wasn’t ordinary.

Since he had already adapted to the thunder qi, there would be no difficulty in absorbing it.


‘It’s huge. Nano.’


Srrrkkk! Woah!

Dozens of wires protruded from the suit, turning into the size of a head they surrounded the core.

Now he had to get out of the cave.

It was the moment when Chun Yeowun, who obtained what he wanted, hurriedly got down from the dragon shell and was about to move away.

Rumble! Swoosh!

What he feared happened.

The ice wall collapsed, and water started rushing in with raging force.

If the water only occupied half the cave, he could have flown.

However, the water which rushed into the cave was vast.



Chun Yeowun was quickly swept away by the water.

He tried to balance himself in the water, but he couldn’t.

He was being swept away by a huge current, and it was hard to gain balance when his entire body was being swept away.

Splash! Splash!



The only sounds which could be heard were crashes.

As if being sucked into the abyss, Chun Yeowun’s body kept being swept away.

Even if he wanted to stand, he didn’t have any ground to stand on.

Beep! Beep! Beep! Beep!

[Emergency. Invoke Nano Suit’s dive mode. Oxygen remaining 90%.]

Bubble! Bubble!

The only good thing was that the Nano Suit had a submersible function.

Since the helmet wasn’t open, Nano quickly entered into dive mode, which prevented drowning.

Thud! Thud!

With the current being so strong, Chun Yeowun kept hitting into the cave’s walls.

He wasn’t hurt because of the constant hits, but as time went on, Chun Yeowun began to get dizzy.

All he could see was darkness and bubble-filled water.

‘This is going to be a huge problem. Nano, night vision mode.’

[Opening night vision goggles mode.]

Nano’s voice resounded, and Chun Yeowun’s eyes trembled as his dark vision slowly brightened.

‘I’m not able to keep my balance.’

He never knew that water currents could be so scary.

Chun Yeowun’s body was swept away at a very high speed.


Chun Yeowun wasn’t the only thing that was being swept away.

The dead bodies in the cave were also being swept away.

Swish! Swish!

Besides the corpses, the weapons too were swept away and would occasionally hit Chun Yeowun.

If the Nano Suit was not there to protect him, the sharp swords would have done a great deal of damage.

Of course, because of the Nano Suit, he suffered no injuries.

Bubble! Bubble!

Chun Yeowun, who was being swept away, realized that he was spinning around a huge cave.


He was swept away suddenly, so he didn’t realize it then, but now he knew.

He was in the giant cave where the Sky Flash had pierced.

He never knew how far in the holes were drilled, but it seemed like the swords of the Sky Flash pierced pretty deep.

[Remaining oxygen 60%.]

Almost half of the oxygen had been consumed.

‘It’s dangerous to get sucked in any deeper.’

Chun Yeowun, who thought about the worst-case scenario, tried to withstand the current and move his body.



However, instead of overcoming the pressure, he was still being swept away.

The power of the spinning current was so great that it was almost as if he was battling a mountain.

Thud! Thud!

His body kept hitting the walls.

Chun Yeowun saw the broken swords which were pierced into the walls of the cave.

‘I need to hold onto that!’

Chun Yeowun decided that he would hold onto the wall and withstand the pressure.

Chun Yeowun, who was concentrating, waited for the moment he was going to hit a wall again.

The chance came.


At that moment, Chun Yeowun moved his body to collide with the wall and thrust his left fist into it.


He had to hold on with his left hand as his right hand was holding the core.

Chun Yeowun, who held onto the wall with the help of the Nano suit, barely managed to avoid getting swept away.


However, due to the speed of the current, he was pushed quite far.

Chun Yeowun felt something supporting his back.


He managed to stop getting pushed away thanks to a thick metal stick, which stuck to him like a backrest.

‘Haha… thank god. The weapons are stuck on the wall… huh?’

Chun Yeowun turned his head to look at the metal stick which was supporting him.

It was no ordinary weapon.

It was a gorgeous golden staff that radiated cold qi.

‘This is?’

He had never seen anything like this among his enemies.

It wasn’t an unusual amount of cold qi.

It was just the wand that looked unusual. Upon closer inspection, he noticed that something was engraved on it.

‘Nano enlarge the text.’


At Chun Yeowun’s command, Nano scanned the text and displayed it.

The white particles showed what was engraved on the staff, and Chun Yeowun felt interested in it.

‘Isn’t that martial arts?’

Shockingly, the phrases written on it were the long characters used to write martial arts.

The name of the martial artist was written on top of the engraving,

[Ice Cold of Heaven]

It was an ice technique that cold qi users knew.

Seeing the text, Chun Yeowun’s eyes trembled.


Ice Cold of Heaven is a cold qi technique that is supposed to be learned and handed down by the palace King of the North Sea Ice Palace.

It was a legendary staff with a technique that was incomparable to any other technique. It was strong enough to freeze the dragon spirit for hundreds of years.

‘Well, how did the situation turn out like this?’

Getting swept away was supposed to be the worst outcome.

However, the disaster coincidentally led to the discovery of the sacred object of the Ice Palace, which ended up getting lost along with the sealed Dragon Turtle hundreds of years ago.
