RDM (Novel) Chapter 362

C 362

Cheol Daejin removed the headband that limited his field of vision.

Instinctively, he recognized the strength of Pyo Wol.

His opponent was not the one to be underestimated to fight with a cumbersome headband.

Cheol Daejin murmured as he looked at Pyo Wol.

"A big shot has appeared."

Although Pyo Wol himself did not reveal his identity, he recognized him in an instant.

He could tell, just by looking at his inhumanly beautiful face. In the entire Kangho, there was only one man who possessed such a bizarre beauty.

"The Reaper!"

Even people who had never seen him before could instantly recognize Pyo Wol's face.

Thanks to that, Cheol Daejin could also recognize Pyo Wol at once.

Cheol Daejin's expression was not one of fear when he looked at Pyo Wol.

Rather, he looked at Pyo Wol with a burning determination.

Pyo Wol also gazed at Cheol Daejin intently.

The silence that enveloped the two, as their gazes met in midair was suffocating.

Pyo Wol was the first to speak.

"Why did you wipe out the Hao Clan's branch?"

"You found out, huh."

Cheol Daejin didn't bother to deny it. mymtlnoveltranslations

He knew that trying to tell a clumsy lie to someone like Pyo Wol wouldn't work.

Instead, his eyes constantly moved as he observed Pyo Wol.

His facial expression, gaze, posture, and even the slightest tremble of his muscles. However, there was nothing to read from Pyo Wol's appearance.

Although Pyo Wol was standing right in front of him, it was as if he wasn't there at all, unable to read anything.

Cheol Daejin had faced many opponents, but this was his first.

'This kind of person existed in the martial world.'

He thought the rumors about Pyo Wol had been greatly exaggerated.

Rumors in the martial world tend to be inflated, and people tend to have a fanatical reaction to newly emerged warriors. mymtlnoveltranslations

Even though they aren't that impressive when actually met.

Cheol Daejin thought Pyo Wol was just one of those overhyped warriors. That is, until he saw Pyo Wol with his own eyes.

It felt as if all the senses in his body were awakening.

His body reacted first, preparing for survival.

It meant that his opponent was a threatening presence.

Above all, what bothered him the most was Pyo Wol's pupils.

The inscrutable pupils with a reddish hue irritated his nerves.

Then, from Pyo Wol's lips, an unexpected voice flowed.

"Why did they wipe out the Hao Clan’s Poyang Lake Branch?"


"That must mean there's something to hide around here. So far, it has been well hidden, but lately, the Poyang Lake branch must have become a nuisance. Why did they become a nuisance? Probably because of Hong Yushin. After he went missing in this area, the Poyang Lake branch started to move."

Pyo Wol's words were not for Cheol Daejin.

They were for himself, to organize his thoughts. However, Cheol Daejin, who listened to Pyo Wol's words, felt chills all over his body.

'This guy!'

It was as if Pyo Wol had seen everything with his own eyes.


"Also, the Heavenly Flower Troupe disappeared after their last performance here. It can't be a coincidence that the traces of the Heavenly Flower Troupe disappeared where Hong Yushin disappeared. Either they found out a secret they shouldn't have known, or they approached a place they shouldn't have. It must be one of the two." mymtlnoveltranslations


At that moment, Cheol Daejin yelled loudly and attacked Pyo Wol.

He felt that if he let Pyo Wol's train of thought continue, everything would be exposed.


Cheol Daejin's sword aimed for Pyo Wol's neck. However, his sword did not pierce Pyo Wol's neck.

That's because, as he advanced, Pyo Wol retreated.

It was just an inch.

The distance between Cheol Daejin's sword and Pyo Wol's neck. mymtlnoveltranslations


At that moment, the Soul Reaping Thread was released from Pyo Wol's hand.

It flew towards Cheol Daejin at a terrifying speed.


Cheol Daejin swung his sword to deflect it. However, the Soul Reaping Thread that released from Pyo Wol's hand was not just a single strand.

Ten threads of Soul Reaping Thread entwined like a spider web, pressed down on Cheol Daejin.


Seeing Cheol Daejin in danger, his subordinate attacked Pyo Wol.

Clang clang clang!

The sound of metal clashing rang out, as swords and the Soul Reaping Threads collided.

Cheol Daejin's sword, which used sword energy, was unharmed, but his subordinate's sword was instantly cut by the Soul Reaping Threads.



At that moment of astonishment, a ghost blade struck the subordinate's forehead.


The subordinate died without even screaming.

Cheol Daejin didn't even glance at his subordinate's death. mymtlnoveltranslations

He had no time to spare.


He spread his sword techniques like a madman.

The Devil Blood’s Eight Forms, which gave him the nickname of the blade-cutting blood demon sword, unfolded one after another.

Swish swish swish!

The air was filled with the sword energies he spread.

The sword energies became like rain, pouring down towards Pyo Wol. But not a single drop touched Pyo Wol's body.

Clang clang clang!

The Soul Reaping Threads swirled around Pyo Wol's body, repelling all of Cheol Daejin's attacks.

"It's unbelievable..."

Cheol Daejin gaped at the incredible sight.

He had never even imagined that such a martial art existed.

A martial art that uses Qi Threads.

He had seen sword energy and blade energy, but this was the first time he had seen such a martial art. That's why it was more baffling.

To break the Soul Reaping Thread, a powerful strike was needed. akhi buy me a coffee

He had been forced to use the sword energy while distributing his internal energy, but now was not the time to worry about that.

'One strike with everything poured into it.'


He poured all his internal energy into his sword. Then, a vivid cluster of light appeared on the sword, eventually taking the shape of a sword.

The Sword Qi manifested.

"Chyah! Blood Rain Sword Qi!"

He shouted loudly and swung the Sword Qi.


The Soul Reaping Threads that collided with the Sword Qi broke like thin twigs.

Cheol Daejin intended to finish off Pyo Wol in one breath.


It was then.

An unexpected sound erupted, and his sword attack stopped midway.


Cheol Daejin's eyes widened.

A particularly vivid Soul Reaping Thread was blocking his Sword Qi


It was not an ordinary Soul Reaping Thread.

As thin and strong as a real snake.

It was the threaded serpent qi .

Pyo Wol waved his hand. Then, the threaded serpent qi burrowed into Cheol Daejin like a venomous snake.


Startled, Cheol Daejin tried to defend himself, but it was already too late.

With a faint sound, the threaded serpent qi pierced through his chest.


Cheol Daejin spat out blood and collapsed.

As if a drop of ink fell and spread on the water's surface, the bloodstain spread across his chest.

The wound was as small as a needle's eye, but his insides were completely shattered.

He lay helplessly on the ground and opened his mouth.

"Heh! Impressive... But that's it. You won't be able to find out anything."

With every word, blood gushed out.

The fresh blood stained his mouth and chest red.

Pyo Wol silently watched him.

Cheol Daejin's eyes, which stared into Pyo Wol's pupils, had a red glow.

Even in a dying state, Pyo Wol's eyes felt terrifying. akhi buy me a coffee

Pyo Wol wiped the blood around Cheol Daejin's mouth with his hand and said.

"There's no need for you to say. I've found out everything I need to know."


"The day after the Je-won merchant group  stormed the Blood Ant Chamber, you appeared. This means you were hiding within a day's distance from Poyang Lake."


"Even if you traveled by horse or boat, there must be a hideout within a day or two. So, there's no need to look far; within a day or two from here, I can find the place you've been desperately hiding by tracking the unusual flow of supplies."

At Pyo Wol's words, Cheol Daejin was at a loss for words.

The fact that Pyo Wo had grasped so much in such a short time sent shivers down his spine.

'This one is different. Unlike anyone I've ever met before...'


After Cheol Daejin coughed up a large amount of blood one last time, he stopped moving.

He had died.

Pyo Wo began searching the corpses of Cheol Daejin and his subordinates.

Although they had traveled a long way, they didn't have a single coin. Instead, a strangely shaped dagger was found in Cheol Daejin's possession.

The blunt, peculiar-shaped object looked more like a key than a dagger.

The problem was that it was impossible to tell where this key was used.

Pyo Wo examined the key for a moment and then put it in his pocket. He thought that since Cheol Daejin had cherished it, it must have an important purpose.

Noh Tae-tae approached Pyo Wo and said,

"Thank you for saving my life. I'm alive because of you."

"Are you okay?"

"I was a bit surprised, but I'm fine."

"Thank goodness!"

"So, these are the people master Pyo Wol is looking for."

"It seems so."

"Hoo! How audacious. It's been less than a day since Jo Seolpung stormed the Blood Ant Chamber, and they're counterattacking like this."

Noh Tae-tae shook his head with a disgusted expression.

She had never seen such aggressive and bold people in her life. The thought of them being nearby sent shivers down her spine.

"By the way, I wonder if my children are safe?"


"Shall we go check?"

"Would you?"

Noh Tae-tae's expression brightened. akhi buy me a coffee

There was nothing more reassuring than having  Pyo Wol accompanying her.

There was no one stronger than Pyo Wol in the Poyang Lake.

Since everyone working at the Sea Cliff Pavilion had been killed, Pyo Wol  had to drive the cart himself


By the way, I wonder if my children are safe?"

"Let's go together."

"Will you do that for me?"

Noh Tae-tae was relieved.

There would be nothing more reassuring than having Pyo Wol with her.

There was no one stronger than Pyo Wol in the Poyang Lake area.

Since everyone who had been working at the pavilion had been killed, Pyo Wol had to drive the carriage herself.

After putting Noh Tae-tae in the carriage, Pyo Wol headed towards Je-won merchant group’s manor.

Noh Tae-tae's face, looking out the window, was full of worry.

She tried hard to act calm in front of Pyo Wol, but she couldn't bear the anxiety about her children's safety.

'Please be safe...'

For the first time, she prayed to the heavens for her descendants' safety.

Pyo Wol drove the carriage at full speed.

It shook as if it would break apart at any moment, but Pyo Wol did not slow down.

Thanks to that, they arrived at Je-won merchant group’s pavilion in no time.

The Je-Won merchant group’s pavilion looked like a battlefield, completely devastated.

The huge main gate, large enough to accommodate several carriages side by side, was completely destroyed, and a strong smell of blood was coming from inside.

'Please! Please!'

Noh Tae-tae hurriedly got off the carriage and rushed into the pavillion.


Noh Tae-tae covered her mouth with her hand at the sight before her.

It was because so many people were dead.

Among them were people Noh Tae-tae had raised herself.

"My goodness!"


At that moment, an old man with a thick beard ran to Noh Tae-tae.

He was Noh Tae-tae's son and the head of Je-won merchant group, Joo Janghwan.

Joo Janghwan. hugged Noh Tae-tae and said,

"Are you alright, mother?"

"Are you okay?"

"I'm fine. Fortunately, they appeared just in time to help."

Joo Janghwan. pointed to the warriors standing nearby. The warriors bowed respectfully.

"I am Nam-gung Wol of the thousand Kingdom school, greeting Noh Tae-tae."

"I am Yong Ha-sang of the Dragon Mountain Manor, greeting the lady of Je-won merchant group."

"I am Yeom Hee-soo of the white fox clan, greeting you."

They were the members who had formed the Anti golden heavenly Hall.

When the Blood Ant Chamber invaded, Joo Janghwan's life was in danger. The arriving troops fought back, but it wasn't enough. akhi buy me a coffee

That's when they came to his aid.

With their help, the Blood Ant Chamber was cornered.

The Blood Ant Chamber's martial arts were impressive, but Nam-gung Wol and the member's martial arts were even more extraordinary. In the end, all the Blood Ant Chamber’s members were killed, and Joo Janghwan was able to save his life.

Noh Tae-tae said to the members,

"I will never forget this favor. The Je-won merchant group will cooperate with whatever we can help you with."

"Thank you, Noh Tae-tae! We didn't do it for the reward."

Yong Ha-sang humbly replied, out of character.

Pyo Wol looked at Yong Ha-sang for a moment and then turned to Nam gung-Wol.

"Did you watch over the Je-won merchant group?"

"It's true that we were waiting for a chance to bring the leader of the Je-won merchant group. Thanks to that, we were able to save Lord Joo Janghwan in time."


"It worked out as intended. Now, Jo Seolpung has no reason to refuse to join the Anti Golden Heavenly Hall."

"This is just the beginning."

Nam gung-Wol clenched his fist and replied.
