RDM (Novel) Chapter 364

C 364


Deung Cheol-woong slammed his huge fist down on the table, causing it to collapse in half.


Oh Shin-Pyung looked at Deung Cheol-woong with a worried expression.

"Tell me again. What happened?"

"All of them... were defeated."

"Damn it! Is that really true?"

"Yes! The rumours are already spreading on the streets. They say that none of them survived and they all died."

"What the hell..."

Deung Cheol-woong's body shook with anger.

They had prepared to act as soon as they heard the news that the leaders of the Je-won merchant group had been killed.

All the remaining subordinates were armed and ready, but only the news of the total annihilation of the messengers had arrived.

Oh Shin-Pyung asked cautiously.

"What should we do? The children are all prepared."

"What can we do? Should we jump into the fire with our eyes open? Tell everyone to put down their weapons and stay calm."


"Make sure no one moves hastily."


Oh Shin-Pyung replied weakly.

He was also disappointed.

Deung Cheol-woong asked. mymtlnoveltranslations

"What was the reason? How did the  Je-won merchant group manage to block their surprise attack?"

"They were lucky."


"It turns out that a man called the Reaper had some connections with them."

"The Reaper? Pyo Wol?"


"Damn it! This is crazy. Why would a whale jump into a shrimp fight? Isn't that cheating?"

Deung Cheol-woong vented his frustration.

His ambition was greater than anyone else's, and he had a keen interest in Kangho.

That's why he'd been tracking all the newly emerging martial artists in the martial world.

Among the martial artists he had identified, Pyo Wol was undoubtedly the best.

There was no one in the martial arts world who could follow him. Even the previous martial artists paled in comparison to him.

Deung Cheol-woong found Pyo Wol to be the most irrational existence.

"Isn't he not that old?"

"Yes! He's even very handsome. Women who have had one look at his face will never be the same again..."

"Damn it! Life is so unfair. He has everything! What does he want by showing up here? No, it's good that he came. If he's done sightseeing, he should leave quietly. Why interfere with other people's business?"mymtlnoveltranslations

"We may have to find a different way. We have to find allies somewhere else."


"We must find out from now on. If we go on like this, we'll be finished. We must find a way while there's still a chance. "

When he heard Oh Shin-Pyung's words, Deung Cheol-woong bit his lips until they bled.

He still couldn't understand how he and his gang had ended up in this situation.

"Damn martial artists! You're worse than dogs!"

After cursing for a while, Deung Cheol-woong grabbed a woman who had been sitting blankly to one side and went into a room.

Soon after, heavy breathing sounds came from the room.

Oh Shin-Pyung knew what it meant.

"Damn it!"

Even then, he found Deung Cheol-woong's lust for women pathetic, but he couldn't give up on him.

After all, Oh Shin-Pyung was Deung Cheol-woong's loyal servant, and he had a responsibility to support the crumbling Blood Ant Chamber.

"There must be a way. A way to revive..."


Early in the morning, Jo Seolpung came to see Pyo Wol.

He came straight to the point.

"They came here by boat. The place where they boarded the boat is called Eungdam (鷹潭). It's a day's journey by water." mymtlnoveltranslations

"Which way?"

"Over there."

Jo Seolpung pointed to a huge mountain in the distance.

'The Dragon Tiger Mountain'

It was the moment when speculation became certainty.

Pyo Wol rose from his seat.

"Do you want to go right away?"


"I will go with you."

"I prefer to go alone."


"Everyone has different strengths. This is what I do best. Anyone coming with me would only be a hindrance."


Jo Seolpung answered reluctantly.

He still didn't know the identity of the assassins. But Pyo Wol seemed to know already. He didn't know how Pyo Wol knew so quickly, but it was clear that he had been tracking them for a long time.

The Pyo Wol he knew was persistent, very persistent. akhi buy me a coffee

Once he had a target, he never gave up, following them like a hunter to the end.

Whoever they were, they were unfortunate to be targeted by Pyo Wol.

He didn't want to be an enemy to someone like Pyo Wol.

Pyo Wol is a terrible person to be an enemy of.

Unlike ordinary warriors, he didn't find it shameful to sneak around.

Some people might call Pyo Wol a coward, but Jo Seolpung thought otherwise.

In the end, the martial arts world was a place where the survivors took it all. 

Even if they used underhanded methods, the survivors were the true winners.

Pyo Wol had all the prerequisites to be a winner in this respect.

Jo Seolpung asked carefully,

"Is there anything you need?"

"Prepare a boat to Eungdam."

"I have already arranged it."

Jo Seolpung smiled.

He had prepared it in advance, thinking that Pyo Wol would move immediately.

Pyo Wol got up immediately. akhi buy me a coffee

Outside the inn, near the lake, a small boat was floating.

"It's small, but its body is like a fish, so it's very fast. This boat will take you to Eungdam."

"Thank you!"

"No need to mention it. I just hope you return safely."

Pyo Wol nodded slightly and then jumped.

He flew almost ten metres and landed on the boat floating on the lake.

Even after Pyo Wol landed, the boat didn't shake at all.

The captain and the crew were astonished.


'He's not even a bird...'

They had carried many warriors, but this was the first time they had seen one with such extraordinary agility.

The captain said carefully, akhi buy me a coffee

"Then we'll get you to your destination as soon as we can."


Hearing Pyo Wol's answer, the captain gave orders to his crew.


The ship began to sail up the river at a terrifying speed, braving the strong winds and escaping from Lake Poyang.

There were dozens of large and small rivers flowing into Poyang Lake. Therefore, it was essential to have a skilled captain who knew the local geography. In this respect, the captain of the ship that Pyo Wol boarded was the best candidate.

He had sailed in the area for a long time and was familiar with the complex network of rivers and waterways.

Without wasting any time, he navigated the ship along the optimal route.

Standing at the bow of the ship, Pyo Wol felt the strong wind on his body and spoke.

"Now, come out."

His sudden words left the captain and crew speechless, blinking their eyes in confusion.

The answer came from an unexpected place.

"I knew you knew."

Two men and a woman emerged from the cabin.

They were Nam Gung-Wol, Yong Ha-sang and Yeom Hee-soo.

Nam Gung-Wol apologised.

"I am sorry for sneaking onto the ship. But I couldn't just stand by, knowing that such people are conspiring in Kangho.

"You are really curious." akhi buy me a coffee

"What can I do? It's just my nature."

Nam Gung-Wol smiled.

Pyo Wol said nothing more to Nam Gung-Wol.

He knew he was sincere.

On the other hand, the faces of Yong Ha-sang and Yeom Hee-soo were full of greed.

It was clear that they had secretly boarded the ship in order to make a name for themselves.

Yong Ha-sang and Yeom Hee-soo spoke as if to apologise.

"We can't just leave such people on the Kangho. Wouldn't it be better if we were with you, master Pyo Wol?"

"We certainly won't be a burden, so you needn't worry."

Pyo Wol looked at them for a moment and then said,

"You should take care of your own lives."

"Don't worry. That won't happen."

Yong Ha-sang smiled.

He looked a little hurt, but Pyo Wol didn't pay any more attention to him.

Nam Gung-Wol watched Yong Ha-sang and Yeom Hee-soo retreat with a bitter smile. He thought they still had a long way to go.

Perhaps these two would never acknowledge Pyo Wol until they died.

Because they were people who believed that this was the pride of a respectable family.

It was his job to mediate between them.

"Sigh! I guess this is my karma too."

Nam Gung-Wol shook his head.

The ship made smooth progress as it sailed up the river with the wind.

As their destination, Eungdam, came into view, Nam Gung-Wol approached Pyo Wol.

"What should I do?"

Pyo Wol looked astonished at his unexpected question. Nam Gung-Wol chuckled and said,

"You let us board so easily because we must be useful, right?"

No one there knew more about Pyo Wol than he did.

Pyo Wol preferred to act alone rather than in a group. The fact that he didn't throw them off the ship meant that they were worth using.

Nam Gung-Wol asked again.

"What should I do?"

"Just do what you normally do. I'll take care of the rest."

"Do as usual? Understood."

"It's going to be dangerous."

"I'm prepared for that."

"Hong Yushin, the chief inspector of the Hao clan, has also disappeared. You can't take this lightly."

Nam Gung-Wol nodded at Pyo Wol's words.

This meant that it was indeed dangerous.

Nam Gung-Wol steeled himself and checked his physical condition.

Watching him, Yong Ha-sang and Yeom Hee-su looked puzzled. They cautiously asked Nam Gung-Wol,

"Why are you doing that?"

"Did he say something?"

"It's best to be prepared."

At Nam Gung-Wol's words, they both furrowed their brows simultaneously.

"Prepared? Do you know what's going to happen?"

"Aren't you being too sensitive?"

"Do not take my words lightly. From now on it's going to be really hard."

Nam Gung-Wol said once again with a serious look on his face.

Yong Ha-sang stared at him with a displeased expression. He found Nam Gung-Wol's Gung-Wol's attitude strange.

Although Pyo Wol was a great martial artist, he was annoyed by Nam Gung-Wol's attitude of taking his words so seriously. But since he felt it would be inappropriate to say anything more, he just watched.

At that moment, the boat came closer and closer to Eungdam.

The captain shouted,

"After this bend, we will reach our destination.

Only then did Nam Gung-Wol stand up, and Yong Ha-sang and Yeom Hee-su also looked forward. Then they noticed that someone who was supposed to be there was missing.

"Where is he?"

"Pyo Wol is gone."

Pyo Wol had vanished without a trace.

Yong Ha-sang and Yeom Hee-su looked around in confusion, but they couldn't see Pyo Wol anywhere.

"What on earth?"

Yong Ha-sang asked with a disbelieving look on his face.

Pyo Wol had definitely been in his line of sight. Yet he hadn't even noticed Pyo Wol's disappearance.

He knew there was a gap between him and Pyo Wol, but he didn't know it was this wide.

"Damn it!"

Yong Ha-sang gritted his teeth in humiliation.

Nam Gung-Wol, on the other hand, seemed completely unfazed.

Unlike Yong Ha-sang, he didn't feel any rivalry with Pyo Wol. Besides, this wasn't the time to worry about such trivial matters.

He remembered Pyo Wol's words.

He said to act as usual, right?

The members of the Blood Ant Chamber must have taken a boat from here. To find out where they went, he would have to ask people about their whereabouts.

Cause as much commotion as possible. That was probably what Pyo Wol wanted.
