RDM (Novel) Chapter 371

C 371

One of the three factions and the champion of the South Sea, the Martial Sword Alliance.

Sea King Sword (Jeon Mu-ok) was the master of Martial Sword Alliance and the strongest martial artist in the South Sea.

He had up to ten disciples.

He encouraged competition between his disciples, with the promise that the winner would be the leader of the Martial Sword Alliance.

This caused chaos in the South Sea martial world.

Martial Sword Alliance was a coalition of the South Sea martial arts world.

Each of the ten disciples had an extraordinary background.

In the succession battle, they brought in the factions that supported them or their original factions.

It was not just a simple succession battle, but a civil war within the South Sea Martial Arts world.

The winner would become the leader of the Martial Sword Alliance and take it all.

The future of the Martial Sword Alliance and the dominance of the South Sea Martial Arts World would be in their hands.

For the losers, death was the only outcome.

There could be no exceptions.

It was Jeon Mu-ok, the master of the Martial Sword Alliance, who had created such an atmosphere.

Yoo Soo-hwan was the only student who did not take part in the succession battle.

He was Jeon Mu-ok's second disciple. However, he had no interest in becoming the master of Martial Sword Alliance. But others did not feel the same.

It was because of Yoo Soo-hwan's talent.

His swordsmanship was so extraordinary that no other student could keep up with him.

Even his master, Jeon Mu-ok, envied his swordsmanship.

"If Soo-hwan had any ambition, I would have handed over the Martial Sword Alliance to him without having to go through this tedious process. In terms of swordsmanship alone, Soo-hwan is better than me.

The shock was even greater because these were the words of Jeon Mu-ok, the top martial artist of the South Sea.

Jeon Mu-ok did not give the leadership position to Yoo Soo-hwan because he was generous and free-spirited.

He had no ambition to become the leader of Martial Sword Alliance.

His true nature was that of a romantic who loved practising swordsmanship, drinking and the vast sea.

People gave him the nickname Blue Sword Master.

He even stood aside when his master, Jeon Mu-ok, instigated the bloody fight between his disciples.

Other disciples tried hard to get Yoo Soo-hwan on their side, but he remained neutral and joined no one.

Eventually, Jeon Mu-ok's fifth disciple, Dokgo Hwang, emerged victorious and became the next leader of the Martial Sword Alliance.

Soon after, Yoo Soo-hwan disappeared from the Martial Sword Alliance and the South Sea martial arts world.

It was said that he left the South Sea martial arts world alone so as not to burden Dokgo Hwang.

Many people applauded his decision and praised him for his wise choice.

Yoo Soo-hwan never appeared in the South Sea again and was forgotten in people's memories.

Yoo Soo-hwan was thin, as if he had not eaten for a long time. He looked insignificant, as if only skin covered his bones. But his eyes were strangely clear.

Pyo Wol asked,

"Have you been imprisoned for a long time?"

"I have not been imprisoned here for many months. I was imprisoned for a long time before I was transferred here."

"Is this related to Dokgo Hwang?"

"Have you met that child?"

"Five months ago."
"That must have been when I was locked in a narrow box and transported to Yeonam.

Yoo Soo-hwan sighed.

His sigh contained a multitude of emotions.

"How is the child?"

"He looked good."

"Is that so? Is Eom Soso still by his side?"



Yoo Soo-hwan closed his eyes for a moment.

Pyo Wol watched Yoo Soo-hwan in silence.

Without asking, he could tell that his thoughts were extremely complicated.

Soon, Yoo Soo-hwan opened his eyes.

His gaze was as clear and pure as a mirror.

He asked again.

"What were Hwang's eyes like?"


"Is his ambition still strong?"

"It was huge."


"He was no inferior to Jang Mugak of the Heavenly Martial Sect."

"Did you see Jang Mugak?"

"He was with him."

"Ah... so they are still together?"

Yoo Soo-hwan's voice trembled slightly.

"He took over the Golden Heavenly Hall."

"Ha ha! So that's how it turned out?"


"I have a favour to ask. Please untie me. With your ability to infiltrate this place, it shouldn't be too difficult to free me."

"And what will I get in return?"

"I have nothing to give but my body."

"I'm not interested in men."

"Neither am I. I'll be your tool. Even though I'm like this now, as soon as I regain some of my old abilities, I'll be useful to you."

He was asking for a favour, but Yoo Soo-hwan wasn't submissive.

Yoo Soo-hwan's appearance reminded Pyo Wol of a green pine tree.

Always green and noble, like an old pine.

He didn't know what kind of situation he was in, but it didn't seem like a bad idea to settle a debt.


The little snake coiled around his arm woke up when Pyo Wol shouted.

Yoo Soo-hwan muttered as he watched Gwia crawl down Pyo Wol's arm.

"It's a spirit animal, or rather a rare creature."


Yoo Soo-hwan stretched out his arm.

Gwia bit his arm with her tiny fangs.

Feeling a sting, Yoo Soo-hwan closed his eyes.

He could feel the poison that had been eating away at his body for a long time being sucked out like the ebb and flow of the tide.

His once clouded mind cleared. He could vividly feel the sensations in his entire body.

It had been a long time since he'd felt like this.

For the first time in a long time, vitality flowed through his body, which had been as heavy as a soaked sponge.

Even though it was only the feeling of exhaustion that was disappearing, Yoo Soo-hwan felt like he was being reborn.

Finally, Gwia absorbed all the poison and released its bite.

Yoo Soo-hwan rubbed his arm and stood up.

He had been trapped for so long that he staggered. Eventually, he regained his balance and stood up on his own.

Suddenly, the man behind Pyo Wol caught Yoo Soo-hwan's eye.

"Who are you? Judging by your appearance, you seem to be from the same time as me."

"You're right. I was also imprisoned here. I came in when Master Yoo Soo-hwan came in."

"I see."

"My name is Hong Yushin, the chief inspector of the Hao clan."

"You must be an important person."

"Am I as good as this disciple of the Martial Sword Alliance?"

"Just a superficial status."

"But it can be a powerful justification, depending on how it's used."

"Is that so?"

"Isn't justification the most important thing for people like us?"

"That's true. No, you're right."

Yoo Soo-hwan nodded as if he had received a great epiphany.

Hong Yushin thought as he looked at Yoo Soo-hwan.

The box that the Heavenly Flower Troupe was carrying must have contained him. Yoo Soo-hwan, the Blue Sword Master, I never thought I would see him here.

As the chief inspector of the Hao clan, he knew a lot about Yoo Soo-hwan.

He knew how talented he was and how great his personality was.

If he had really wanted to become the leader, many people would have followed him.

The only reason he was imprisoned here was because he did not take part in the succession struggle.

This must be Dokgo Hwang's doing. Even if Yoo Soo-hwan hadn't participated in the succession battle, his mere existence would have been the spark of chaos.

Hong Yushin knew the physiology of the Kangho better than anyone else, so he could easily guess the situation.

Yoo Soo-hwan must have been a thorn in Dokgo Hwang's side.

Yoo Soo-hwan came out of the room.

Although he had only escaped through a single iron gate, he had a relieved expression on his face.

Hong Yushin understood the emotions that Yoo Soo-hwan was feeling right now.

It was because he had been imprisoned for the same amount of time as Yoo Soo-hwan.

Hong Yushin said to Yoo Soo-hwan,

"Now I want to get out of here."

"It won't be easy to leave. Everyone here has extraordinary martial arts skills.

"It won't be that difficult."


"Because we have Master Pyo(Pyo Wol) with us."

Hong Yushin looked at Pyo Wol.

Yoo Soo-hwan also looked at Pyo Wol.

"He must be an amazing person."

"He is an amazing person. You might not know it since you've been imprisoned for a long time, but his nickname is Reaper(Death God)."

"Reaper? That's fierce."

"When you see his martial arts for yourself, you'll understand why he's called that."

"Hmm! Is that so?"

With his unique clear and deep eyes, Yoo Soo-hwan looked at Pyo Wol.

Even without Hong Yushin saying it, he could tell that Pyo Wol was different from ordinary people.

I don't feel any darkness or alienation.

The pitch black darkness and the feeling of being at one with it were new to him.

Pyo Wol said,

"Let's go now."

He walked towards the exit.

Hong Yushin and Yoo Soo-hwan followed quietly.

Another scene of bloodshed unfolded as they opened the massive iron door that separated the area and walked out.
As they entered the new area, they felt a damp sensation under their feet.
An unidentified liquid was pooling on the floor.
When they entered earlier, it hadn't been there.
Hong Yushin smelled the scent of blood coming from the liquid.
He quickly gathered his inner strength and looked around.

A person leaning against the wall came into view.
"A corpse?"
With his head bowed, the person was lifeless. Blood flowed from his neck and pooled on the floor.
It was obvious that his breath had been cut off by a single blow.
Hong Yushin examined the wound on the corpse and muttered, "It's him!"
"Yes. The beast that Master Pyo unleashed..."
Even in the pitch-black darkness, he accurately cut off the opponent's breath.
With a single stroke of his sword.
Only those trained in the professional art of assassination could perform such feats in the dark.
It was the work of So Geoksan.
So Geoksan, who had been imprisoned for a long time and weakened by the consumption of the deadly Demon Heart Poison, still displayed such terrifying skills.
One could only imagine how terrifying he would be once he regained his true strength.
The three of them continued on.

Another corpse appeared.
It died the same way as the first one.
This was also the work of So Geoksan.
As they continued, more and more corpses appeared.
By now, So Geoksan seemed to be exhausted, as he could no longer kill with a single blow.
Some of the corpses had multiple wounds.
It was a sign that he was struggling.
The sound of clashing weapons could be heard from ahead.
Despite their best efforts, Hong Yushin and Yoo Soo-hwan couldn't see any further due to their inner strength. The same was true for Pyo Wol.
However, from the sound of the clashing weapons, they could tell that the situation was becoming increasingly urgent.
Although the two men could only guess, Pyo Wol's eyes could clearly see what was happening.
So Geoksan!
So Geoksan was hanging like a bat from the stalactites on the ceiling and was moving.
Lee Ho-gwan was relentlessly pursuing and attacking So Geoksan.
So Geoksan used the stalactites as cover, protecting himself and counter-attacking.
He had not killed Lee Ho-gwan's subordinates without taking damage. He had as many injuries as the number of people he had killed.
Moreover, he had been captured for a long time and was very weak. The longer the battle went on, the less favourable it was for him.
So Geoksan also knew this fact.
So he took a risk.
He kicked off the stalactites and flew towards Lee Ho-gwan.
With all his strength, he tried to land a decisive blow on Lee Ho-gwan.
But Lee Ho-gwan was no easy opponent.
"No way."
Lee Ho-gwan spread his spear.
Explosive spear energy erupted from his weapon, attacking So Geoksan.
The spear energy pierced So Geoksan's shoulder and leg.
An ordinary person would have screamed and fallen, but So Geoksan was different.
He ignored the pain and instead increased his speed.
Lee Ho-gwan's astonished expression grew wider. He hadn't expected So Geoksan to attack so recklessly.
So Geoksan's sword pierced Lee Ho-gwan's neck.
Only then did So Geoksan let out the breath he had been holding in.
Blood mixed with his breath as he exhaled.
