Chun Mu-seong, who was struggling in the air, couldn’t hide his shock.
An impossible thing happened.
The 7th generation Nano Machine is made of Gatelinium, the greatest metal ever.
The best technology which had no problem with self-healing and self-upgrading.
‘Nonsense! How could he break free from the restraint!’
If the Nano Machines control the body from the inside, one couldn’t move.
It was because they paralyze the nerve centers which control the cerebellum, which is responsible for movement.
Chun Mu-seong was shocked, but it was a natural outcome.
[External interference blocked.]
‘Good job. Nano.’
Nano had detected the command frequency sent by the device Chun Mu-seong was holding from the very beginning.
And it automatically blocked any interference.
In fact, normally, what Chun Mu-seong had been intending would have happened.
However, there was something that changed in Nano.
‘It’s my luck that an error occurred in Nano that time.’
The damage that Nano took from the lightning when fighting the Dragon Turtle in the North Sea.
At that time, in the process of recovering from the error, the main chip of Nano was damaged, and coincidentally, in the self-upgrade, external interference was blocked.
Chun Mu-seong, who didn’t know that, shouted.
“Wh-What did you do?”
He was emotionally agitated.
It was because he couldn’t receive the data from the Nano Machine. This meant that all his hard work was in vain.
But Chun Yeowun didn’t know that.
“What are you doing?”
Chun Yeowun asked and raised his finger upwards.
Then, the body of Chun Mu-seong, who was already in the air, rose higher.
Chun Yeowun’s eyes were narrowed.
“I would like to hear an explanation.”
Chun Mu-seong was confused.
The longer he stayed here, the more likely ‘they’ would notice.
So, rather than trying to persuade Chun Yeowun for a long time, he just wanted to take the data and return to the real world with the martial arts information.
‘I can’t even move.’
Being restrained like that was more severe than being caught by the neck.
Seeing Chun Yeowun’s face full of displeasure, the descendant noticed how angry he was.
Still, he was a descendant from the future, he wouldn’t be harmed, but it didn’t seem like he would just let him be.
‘Should I explain it in moderation?’
It was a dangerous situation if he didn’t hurry.
If he was alone, that would be a different matter as he was in direct contact with them. However, there is a high probability that ‘they’ would touch Chun Yeowun.
If he wasn’t alone and his luck was terrible, they would discover the existence of the 7th generation Nano Machine, then the worst would happen.
“An-Ancestor, I sincerely apologize for my disrespect. But I really don’t have time. I didn’t really mean to harm you…”
“That isn’t what I want to hear.”
Chun Yeowun moved his finger lightly.
At that moment,
Chun Mu-seong’s left arm got twisted and broke.
At the sudden event, Chun Mu-seong screamed in pain.
‘Th-This is crazy!’
He never imagined that Chun Yeowun would break a healthy descendant’s arm.
He had never felt this kind of pain in his life, almost on the very verge of losing consciousness.
“Let me make this clear. If you hadn’t given me Nano, I would’ve cut off your arm. No more crossing the line and acting like this.”
As soon as he heard those words, Mu-seong had goosebumps all over his body.
Something remembered in his brain.
Among the various matters recorded about the successive lords. He remembered what was written about Chun Yeowun, the 24th Lord and Tyrant.
[He has the cruelest hands among all the previous lords. Even the reason for his title being created, without leaving a single person who offended him, their arms were…]
‘… cut off.’
If his memory was correct, everything was true.
It was only after his arm was twisted did he remember that.
It was his worst mistake, thinking of Chun Yeowun as some little boy.
Chun Yeowun was something he had to be very careful with.
Chun Yeowun now looked at his left arm.
Chun Mu-seong spoke out, scared.
“I-I will talk!”
AD Year. 2940. 12. 25
Just an hour before moving into the past.
In the Sky Corporation lab, Dr. Baek handed over the master device capable of tracking and controlling the 7th generation Nano Machine to Chun Mu-seong.
Dr. Baek spoke in an unappealing voice.
[As you asked, the data terminal information is also copied.]
[Thank you. Are you sure nothing can control the 7th generation Nano Machine other than this device?]
[Unless the worst possible gate in history reopened, there’s no other way to control Gatelinium.]
Chun Mu-seong licked his lips, satisfied.
A gate, once closed, cannot be reopened.
Therefore, this device is the last means to control the 7th generation Nano Machine.
Sticking out his tongue, Dr. Baek spoke.
[Look, Director Chun. Wouldn’t it be better for you to use this Nano Machine instead?]
The Nano Machine was something Chun Mu-seong had made, and it was the best masterpiece.
It had the ability to absorb all energies, and it was impossible to trace because it wasn’t a metal that existed on Earth.
[If that happens, the government and Blade Six may impose sanctions or interfere despite deviating from the rules…]
[Doesn’t the Dr already know that it won’t work?]
[… so, if you intervene in the past, do you think the Blade Six or the Blade God Six Martial Clan from the future will disappear? If the time axis changed, everything we did would become meaningless.]
It was the thing that Dr. Baek was most concerned about.
It was pointless to intervene in the past.
If history changed, the present they were in could disappear like the butterfly effect, and if the time axis wasn’t changed, things would stay the same.
[It doesn’t matter. I just need to prove that my predictions are correct. If it’s true, then it will be like hitting him on his head, and that’s enough for me.]
[Wasn’t it the Dr. who liked that? Huhu.]
As if Dr. Baek lost, he raised his hands, shaking his head.
From distant ancestors to recent ones, the family of Chun had been blessed, but all of them were stubborn.
He wasn’t discouraged.
Chun Mu-seong pulled out something from the bag on his waist and spoke.
[This might be the last thing you get to say, any last words?]
[Don’t say that even as a joke… phew, I hope you don’t enter the plan you mentioned. That’s the whole reason I made that device.]
[Hahahaha, you know. The most certain…]
[You! Where does the nonsensical idea of bringing the people from the past to the future even sound like a plan?]
Chun Mu-seong spoke in a heavy voice.
[It’s because we are in a dire situation. Because he is the only one who can deal with that monster.]
[… you have gone crazy. It isn’t a brilliant idea. It’s a crazy idea.]
[We’ll only know if we implement it.]
[Wa-Wait a minute!]
Despite the urgent call from Dr. Baek, Chun Mu-seong smiled brightly, unlocked the safety device from the bag, and pressed a button.
Space around him shook with a dazzling light, and his body got sucked into the void.
Chun Yeowun had heard the story from Chun Mu-seong.
“What? You are trying to take ancestor Chun Ma to the future?”
These were words that he never thought he would say.
Combining some of the information that he learned so far, he understood that the purpose of the future descendant was to prevent the Blade God and his Clan from developing.
However, when he heard that he was trying to take Chun Ma to the future, it sounded absurd.
“Because he’s the only one who can face that monster.”
‘This one is crazy.’
The one called Dr. Baek didn’t like this plan.
But Chun Mu-seong had gone ahead because he was sure that this plan could block the Blade God successfully.
But the fact that Chun Mu-seong was here meant that the plan had failed.
“That was the original plan, but Chun Ma thinks that the work and problems of the distant future are something that people of that time need to solve. He…”
It was a strange thought.
“I thought of taking him by force, but I didn’t dare do that.”
Chun Ma was too strong.
Seeing him look sad, Chun Yeowun clicked his tongue and spoke.
“Tch tch, so that’s why you told Chun Ma to prepare for the future while pretending to be a prophet and calling it a prophecy?”
Chun Mu-seong’s eyes widened at those words.
“No! How did you know that!?”
He couldn’t help but be shocked when he heard Chun Yeowun say that.
He never dreamed that Chun Yeowun, who was in this era, knew all that.
‘Who is this man?’
He did give him a Nano Machine, but he couldn’t guess what all had happened in just four years.
‘Because Chun Ma showed it to me.’
The appearance of the prophet shown by Chun Ma was Chun Mu-seong.
Because of that, Chun Yeowun already knew that this man had gone to the past, the era of Chun Ma.
He wanted it to be explained,
“Do what you are supposed to do.”
Chun Mu-seong, who was so afraid that his arm would be cut off, didn’t ask for more.
Chun Yeowun asked the first question.
“There is one thing I’m curious about. If my guess is correct, you gave me Nano to prevent the Blade God Six Martial Clan and the Blade God. But why didn’t you give Nano to Chun Ma?”
This was something he couldn’t understand.
If he was unsure, he should have persuaded Chun Ma from the beginning.
There was no need to make things so complicated.
After hesitating for a while, Chun Mu-seong opened his mouth.
“There is this thing called Time Paradox.”
“It means a contradiction in time. If I implanted the Nano Machine into my ancestor, then I would have disappeared forever. Ceased to exist.”
“The history I know would change. Even one change in history would have a huge impact. Of course, I should have disappeared, but I didn’t. A Time Paradox occurred.”
Chun Yeowun frowned.
It was too complicated for him to understand.
Chun Mu-seong explained it again.
“… I’ll explain it simply. We have the power to decide our actions. If I kill someone in this age, his children, grandchildren, and future descendants will disappear.”
Only then did Chun Yeowun understand.
Come to think of it, if he hadn’t been injected with the Nano Machine, the Blade Lord would have obtained the cores of all five spirit beasts. Everything would have gone according to their plan.
“It was a guess. It was a theory that was mentioned in many famous books. That with changes to the time axis, the universe will be born anew.”
“The fact that I still exist without disappearing means that my ancestors and I are walking on different time axes by changing time. Even if I go back to the future where it moves according to my time, the world will still be an era of the Blade God and the Blade God Six Martial Clan.”
With a bitter expression, Chun Mu-seong continued.
“There is no reward for me to come to the past. From the beginning, I came to the past with two purposes. If the time axis is divided like this, I will either take a great master who can deal with the Blade God into my time, the future or if that doesn’t…”
It was then.
Beep! Beep! Beep!
At that moment, a strange alarm began to sound from the mechanical bracelet Chun Mu-seong was wearing on his wrist.
His eyes shook as he heard that sound.
As soon as the flustered words escaped from Chun Mu-seong’s mouth, the space shook.
In the shimmering space, figures covered in bright light appeared.
Chun Mu-seong muttered in a voice full of despair.
What he was the most afraid of was happening.
