“Will those guys really appear? If not he might just be imagining things.”
Guild Master Fabi of the Hwarang Guild asked.
Doran glanced at Fabi’s question.
“I accepted Yeon-jeung’s request, but I don’t think they’ll show up either.”
They were observing the surroundings because of Yeon-jeung’s request.
However, their target was unlikely to appear, as Fabi thought.
“But what if they shows up?”
Doran asked Fabi. What if the Dokgo guild appeared in the village ‘Aryl’ as Yeon-jeung said in the first place?
“What will we do then?”
Fabi replied at Doran’s question clenching his jaw.
“We have to return to them what they did back then.”
Fabi frowned on his memories of what had been done by the Dokgo guild in the past.
Doran nodded, as if he understood it.
It was then.
A whisper came from Pill, one of the guild members waiting in ‘Aryl’ village.
-Pill: That bastard Kefarm appeared?
Doran was surprised when he saw the whisper.
‘He really showed up?’
They thought he wouldn’t show up, but he really showed up in the end?
“What is it?”
When Doran’s expression suddenly changed, Fabi asked, guessing what happened.
“He showed up. Kefarm.”
Like Doran, Fabi was surprised.
-Doran: How many people are with him?
Doran asked Pill.
-Pill: He’s alone.
-Doran: He’s alone?
-Pill: Yes, I checked if there were any people I didn’t know, but there weren’t.
Doran frowned at Pill’s answer.
‘That bastard might be crazy, but he wouldn’t come alone.’
He didn’t understand why Kefarm came alone.
Kefarm might not be like everyone else, but even he had to acknowledge this place. Why did he come alone? Did he think he could do it alone?
When Doran was thinking about Pill’s whisper, a whisper came to Fabi as well.
-Sword Pressure: Gilma-nim. #T/N: short for guildmaster
-Fabi: Yes, Pressure.
-Sword Pressure: Commander is outside of the village?
-Fabi: Commander? Of the Dokgo guild?
-Sword Pressure: Yes, and he’s with some people I haven’t seen before.
-Fabi: How many are there?
-Sword Pressure: I’ve seen 10 so far, including the commander.
-Fabi: I see. I will be there soon. Please keep an eye on them.
-Sword Pressure: Understood.
After finishing whispering with Sword Pressure, Fabi called Doran.
“That bastard Commander has also shown up.”
“As I thought, Kefarm wouldn’t appear alone.”
Doran nodded and said. After all, Kefarm didn’t come alone.
“How will we do it?”
Doran, who stopped nodding, asked Fabi.
“I’ll take Commander! I want to see him crushed.”
Fabi replied with a smile at Doran’s question.
“Then I’ll take Kefarm.”
Doran also said with a smile.
“But what if he’s not in town?”
“Well, that would be a problem… …
At Kefarm’s question, Commander started to mumble the words as he pondered. Kefarm looked at Commander and said in a quiet voice that only the commander could hear it.
“Is there something I don’t know?”
“… … what?”
The Commander was suprised at Kefarm’s question.
“No matter how much I think about it. I don’t understand why you had me come to this dangerous place just because he is a friend of that bastard.”
Kefarm didn’t understand Commander’s determination to kill Soo-hyuk in this dangerous place, just because he was a new guild member in the ‘Reader’ guild and a friend of Yeon-jeung.
Commander didn’t speak for a while.
‘There is definitely a reason.’
And in response to Commander’s silence, Kefarm was convinced that there were other reasons.
“Is there a reason you can’t tell me?”
Kefarm asked Commander who was contemplating.
“… … Haaa.”
Commander sighed deeply at Kefarm’s question.
“Yes, I guess, I should tell you.” Then he looked around and said in a very quiet voice.
“He has Yarion’s Wrath.”
Kefarm’s pupils shook at the commander’s words.
‘That, Yarion’s Wrath?’
He thought it would not be a normal reason. But Yarion’s Wrath?
It was a really unexpected reason.
“This stays between us.”
Kefarm calmed his surprise and answered.
“It will be troublesome, if you get caught. Take care.”
“Mhmm, you don’t have to worry about it.”
At the Commander’s anxious words, Kefarm pointed up.
“Isn’t the guild mark changed? Huh.”
He left the Dokgo guild and created the Solitude guild. Of course, the guild mark had also changed.
The guild mark of the Dokgo guild was famous, but the guild mark of the Solitude guild was not. Wouldn’t it be too flashy if it was seen close to this area?
“Then I’ll be leaving first.”
Kefarm went to the village alone.
‘Reader’ Guild’s mark…
Upon entering the village, Kefarm looked directly above the heads of those walking around.
It was to find the guild mark of the ‘Reader’ guild.
-Commander: How is it? Have you found him?
After about 10 minutes passed, a whisper came from Commander.
-Kefarm: No. I can’t see him.
Kefarm responded to the Commander and looked around again.
Kefarm stopped looking around. This is because he saw a familiar guild mark. It was not the mark of the ‘Reader’ guild.
The guild mark that stopped Kefarm was the mark of the Hwarang guild. Kefarm continued naturally and passed silently without giving any glance to the user wearing the ‘Hwarang’ guild mark.
Kefarm, who passed by the guild members of the Hwarang guild, exhaled a sigh of relief.
However after that situation continued for a while, Kefarm stopped walking. Five users wearing the Hwarang guild mark were approaching from the front.
The problem was that among those five there was someone who was already showing his teeth.
“Hey, what are you doing here?”
Asked Doran, who stopped walking in front of Kefarm.
Kefarm pondered how he would answer, then opened his mouth.
“… … I am traveling.”
Doran raised his bow, questioning Kefarm’s answer. At Doran’s bow lifted up, Kefarm said, frowning.
“What to do… …”
However, Kefarm closed his mouth and stepped sideways to avoid the arrow.
An arrow passed through the place where Kefarm had been and hit the ground behind it.
“Are you crazy?”
Seeing the arrow stuck in the ground, Kefarm frowned and asked Doran.
“What’s crazy, I’m just doing what you taught me, right?”
Doran replied with a bloody smile at Kefam’s words. Then he pulled the string again.
“This dog… …”
Kefarm cursed Doran’s actions.
Of course, he had to shut my mouth on the way. This was because a new arrow headed his way. Kefarm again avoided to the side.
Kefarm, who escaped sideway, quickly checked the surroundings.
It was to find the escape route. How could this situation be a one-on-one?
If he continued to fight in the current situation, he would die a dog’s death.
However, Kefarm, who checked the surroundings to find the escape route, was forced to swear.
It was because the Hwarang guild members were cutting him off from the surroundings.
Five in front, two right, two left, three in the back. The number of Hwarang guild members nearby was a total of 12.
‘You must be crazy.’
There was no way to escape.
“I left the Dokgo guild! That’s what happened back then was when I was in the Dokgo guild!”
Eventually, Kefarm gave up running away and shouted to Doran. Doran said with a bloody smile at Kefarm’s cry.
“How come Commander was with you then?”
Kefarm was bound to be surprised.
‘How did he know that?’
Commander did not enter the village. He was waiting outside so he wouldn’t alarm anyone because of the guild mark. But how did Doran know about Commander?
‘Is it a trap?’
Was it a trap?
‘Right! It’s strange that these guys are here like this!’
After thinking a little, the trap was clear.
It was know that the area belonged to the Hwarang Guild, but this was not a famous city.
In the first place, the fact that there were Hwarang guild members here meant that it was a trap.
Kefam said, staring at Doran.
“Don’t think about running by logging out and calling Commander. Fabi went to see him. Commander will also be busy. Oh, your guild members too!”
Doran responded at Kefarm’s protest.
Having finished speaking, Doran laughed and readied an arrow.
“Let’s have you die quietly.”
Yeon-jeung said nothing. He was just watching the whisper with his mouth shut. It was a whisper from Doran.
-Doran: Commander and Kefarm showed up.
-Doran: We killed them all.
-Doran: But how did you know?
-Doran: Is something here? If these guys came to our area… … .
‘I was hoping, it wasn’t true.’
He hoped this whisper would not come from Doran.
‘To think Lilith will betray me…’
He hoped that members of the Dokgo guild or the Solitude guild would not appear.
-Yeon-jeung: There was a traitor in the guild.
Yeon-jeung responded to Doran’s whisper. Then, Doran’s whisper arrived, showing his surprise and embarrassment.
-Doran: Really? A Traitor?
-Yeon-jeung: Yes, I’ll tell you when the situation is cleared up later. Thanks for your help.
-Doran: No. Rather, I’m grateful for sharing this information. It was nice to be able to take revenge thanks to you.
-Yeon-jeung: I will contact you again, next time.
Yeon-jeung finished whispering with Doran and opened a friend window to check Lilith’s connection status.
Lilith was online and Yeon-jeung whispered to Lilith.
Shortly after the whisper was sent, an answer came from Lilith.
-Yeon-jeung: Could you come to the guild house in a while?
-Lilith: Guild house?
-Yeon-jeung: Yes. I have something to tell you.
-Lilith: All right! I will be there soon.
Yeon-jeung, who finished chatting with Lilith, then sent a whisper to Soo-hyuk. It was to let him know that Lilith’s betrayal was certain.
However, even after a minute of whispering, Soo-hyuk didn’t respond.
‘Is he reading a book again?’
It felt like he was reading a book.
When Yeon-jeung remembered Soo-hyuk’s love for reading, he smiled and thought, tapping his finger on the desk.
‘How will I do it… …
Soon Lilith was coming. What should he do?
What should he say? How should he start and how should it end?
“… … Ahhhh.”
Lost in thoughts, Yeon-jeung sighed.
And he muttered a little.
“I trusted you.”
He was so bitter that he had been betrayed by someone he trusted.
