The Celestial Demon Troupe's leader, Go Geomweol, was an unparalleled master who had no equal in the world.

No warrior in Kangho could stand against Go Geomweol.

He had only one rival: Lee Gwak, the leader of the Mad Martial Sect.

In their final moments, the two clashed with everything on the line.

In the end, the victor was Lee Gwak of the Mad Martial Sect.

He had subdued Go Geomweol. However, it was Jang Cheon-hwa, the young master of the Heavenly Martial Sect, who actually ended Go Geomweol's life.

As Go Geomweol fell at Lee Gwak's feet, Jang Cheon-hwa swung his sword in surprise and took his life.

Due to this incident, Jang Cheon-hwa gained fame, and the Heavenly Martial Sect rapidly developed.

Even before this event, Heavenly Martial Sect's wealth was extraordinary enough to span the world. But after this event, many warriors entrusted themselves to the Heavenly Martial Sect, and their influence expanded explosively.

Thanks to this, the Heavenly Martial Sect became a dominant force in the world, rivaling the Mad Martial Sect. And this was a widely Known fact

"So the truth is that the Heavenly Martial Sect is actually the successor to the Celestial Demon Troupe? And maybe Jang Cheon-hwa killing Go Geomweol was a part of the plan."

From a few simple lines, Pyo Wol discovered the hidden truth of Kangho.

"If this writing is true, then the Celestial Demon Troupe's leader Go Geomweol sacrificed his own life to successfully execute a decoy strategy."

He couldn't help but think it was remarkable.

To risk one's life to carry out a plan like this was not something anyone could do.

Although he didn't know what kind of person the Celestial Demon Troupe's leader Go Geomweol was, the fact that he had executed and succeeded in this plan made him a legendary strategist.

He never realized that there was such a hidden story behind Kangho. And he never imagined that he would learn about it in the ruins of the Celestial Demon Troupe.

Pyo Wol's gaze turned to Gwak Nosaeng.

Until that moment, Gwak Nosaeng had been at a loss.

He wanted to escape while Pyo Wol's attention was elsewhere, but he hesitated because Yong Seol-ran was blocking the entrance.

Pyo Wol spoke to Gwak Nosaeng.

"You must know it too. That Heavenly Martial Sect is actually the successor to the Celestial Demon Troupe."

"What does it matter?"

"You didn't just find out here, you've actually known for a long time, right?"

For a moment, Gwak Nosaeng's expression slightly hardened, which Pyo Wol didn't miss.

Pyo Wol was certain that his suspicion was true.

Gwak Nosaeng realized his mistake and yelled angrily.

"What nonsense are you talking about?"

"We'll soon find out whether it's nonsense or not."

Pyo Wol walked towards Gwak Nosaeng.

He hesitantly backed away, only to be blocked by a wall.

His expression turned vicious as he realized he had nowhere to run.


For the first time in his life, he found himself cornered.

The original plan was to grab what he could and get out of here before Pyo-wol arrived.

However, all of his plans were thrown out the window when Pyo Wol chased after him at a speed that exceeded his expectations.

He was confident in his own martial arts. But he had no confidence in facing the monster in front of him head-on.

At least, not under normal circumstances.

After a moment of struggle, Gwak Nosaeng made up his mind and reached into his pocket.

In his hand was a small black pill.

Without hesitation, he swallowed the pill.

In an instant, his blood vessels bulged and his muscles swelled.

The pill he took was a secret elixir called the Demonic Spirit Enhancement Pill

Based on the insights he gained here, he made the pill himself, which temporarily amplified his internal energy and physical abilities several times.

As with all elixirs of this kind, it had tremendous side effects, and he would normally avoid taking it, but when he was backed into a corner and saw no other way out, he made a desperate choice.


Gwak Nosaeng  let out a strange breath.

His eyes were filled with a terrifying demonic aura.

"You will pay the price for making me take the Demonic Spirit Enhancement Pill ."


Gwak Nosaeng  kicked off the ground and charged toward Pyo Wol.

As he approached with terrifying speed, he unleashed his signature move, the Demon Soul Hand.


A terrifying energy rushed towards Pyo Wol.

Pyo Woldidn't panic, and used the Meandering Steps to dodge Gwak Nosaeng 's attack.

"Do you think you can escape?"

Gwak Nosaeng  chased Pyo Wol at a terrifying speed.

This, too, was the effect of the Demonic Spirit Enhancement Pill .


He swung his Demon Soul Hand repeatedly.


The Demon Soul Hand was a martial art derived from medical techniques. Once struck by the Demon Soul Hand, even just once, death energy immediately infiltrated the body, destroying the heart meridian and leading to death.


Gwak Nosaeng  pursued the retreating Pyo Wol and repeatedly unleashed the Demon Soul Hand. However, all his attacks barely missed by a hair's breadth.


Gwak Nosaeng, now under the influence of the pill, shouted.


"If you're a man, don't be cowardly and run away."


But Pyo Wol paid no attention to him and focused solely on evading Gwak Nosaeng's attacks.



Seeing the two of them flying through the stone chamber, Yong Seol-ran let out an involuntary sigh.


Their movements were too fast for her to keep up with.


A blur here, a blur there, it was as if they were performing the legendary godly technique of the Buddha, the Immovable Vajra Step.


They were moving at a speed that defied common sense. However, Yong Seol-ran was not too worried.


Even though Gwak Nosaeng had taken the Demonic Spirit Enhancement Pill, he couldn't fully catch up with Pyo Wol.


To her eyes, it seemed as if Pyo Wol was just waiting for Gwak Nosaeng to tire out.


That was indeed the case.


Pyo Wol had something he desperately wanted to know from Gwak Nosaeng . So,he waited for Gwak Nosaeng 's energy to be completely exhausted.


Pyo Wol knew that an item like the Demonic Spirit Enhancement Pill would inevitably bring side effects.


Left alone, time would eventually cause Gwak Nosaeng's self-destruction.


That's why he waited for Gwak Nosaeng to tire out without intervening.


"You coward! Are you only thinking of running away like a rat?"


Frustrated at not being able to catch Pyo Wol, Gwak Nosaeng cursed loudly. He showered Pyo Wol with all sorts of curses, but Pyo Wol didn't even blink.


No matter how many curses he heard, his heart never wavered.




In the end, Gwak Nosaeng let out a moan, unable to catch Pyo Wol. Then, like a deflated leather drum, his body rapidly shrank.


The effect of the Demonic Spirit Enhancement Pill had worn off.


In an instant, Pyo Wol unleashed the soul reaping thread, and wrapped around Gwak Nosaeng 's waist. Pyo Wol threw Gwak Nosaeng against the wall.






Gwak Nosaeng  groaned as he collided with the wall.


At that moment, Pyo Wol swung the soul reaping thread once again, slamming Gwak Nosaeng against the opposite wall.






Unable to withstand the impact, Gwak Nosaeng vomited black blood. But his misfortune was not over yet.




Pyo Wol used the Soul Reaping Thread to swing Gwak Nosaeng around, bashing him into walls and the ground. He became a complete mess.


His once neat hair had become tangled, and it felt like all the bones in his body were broken.


Gwak Nosaeng tried to escape from the Soul Reaping Thread, but it was in vain.


The side effects of the Demonic Spirit Enhancement Pill were so severe that he no longer had the strength to even move a finger. Pyo Wol knew this as well, but he didn't stop his merciless attacks.




Finally, Gwak Nosaeng crashed to the ground. The floor's stones shattered, and his body was half-buried, trembling violently.


The extreme exhaustion and side effects that came with the end of the Demonic Spirit Enhancement Pill’s effects, combined with the enormous impact, completely crushed Gwak Nosaeng's intestines.




Gwak Nosaeng belatedly spat out dark red blood.


Pieces of his crushed organs were mixed in with the blood.


No matter how great a healer Gwak Nosaeng was, there was no way he could recover from such injuries.




Gwak Nosaeng spat out blood again, this time with even more pieces of his organs mixed in.


Pyo Wol crouched down in front of Gwak Nosaeng, fixing his gaze on him.


Gwak Nosaeng shivered as he spoke.


"You're a demon!"


"Did you come from Guryongsalmak?"


"What nonsense are you talking about?"


"Is the Guryongsalmak related to the Heavenly Martial Sect?"




Gwak Nosaeng's reaction confirmed it.


He was indeed affiliated with the Guryongsalmak.


Pyo Wol couldn't help but shiver.


He never expected that they would have reached as far as the ruins of the Celestial Demon Troupe. It was impossible to know how far their influence reached.


"So the Heavenly Martial Sect is related to Guryongsalmak? Seeing how you deny it."


"Hehe! Think whatever you want."


Gwak Nosaeng laughed at Pyo Wol.


"It doesn't seem to be directly related to the Heavenly Martial Sect.


Gwak Nosaeng was already on the brink of death.


He had neither the energy nor the focus to lie.


Pyo Wol purposely pushed him to the edge so that he wouldn't have time to think.


"Where is the main base of the Guryongsalmak?"


"He...he! You'll never find it."


"Why do you think I won't be able to find it?"


"Because you...... will be killed...... before then. How long do you think you'll be able to follow your heart...... like this? When I die, the Salmak will no longer look down on you."


"Is that so?"


"From now...on, your life will become hell."


"That's good."




"That means I don't have to search for them one by one."


"You...must be insane."


"That's right! I'm insane. And it's you guys who provoked an insane person first."


"You bastard!"


Gwak Nosaeng's face turned red with anger as it surged through his head.




Suddenly, a small explosion occurred inside his head.


At the same time, blood gushed out from his seven apertures. 

His heart veins had burst due to the excessive strain. 

Gwak Nosaeng convulsed like an epileptic, and his movements stopped like a lie. His breathing had completely stopped.


Pyo Wol stared at Gwak Nosaeng's corpse for a while before getting up.


"Are you okay?"


Yong Seol-ran approached and asked.


Pyo Wol silently nodded.


The only regret was that the connection with Guryongsalmak, which had been discovered with great difficulty, was severed here.


For a moment, Pyo Wol thought of something and approached the wall.


The heritage left by a man named Gyeong Chu-wol was all here.


Although he may have gained greater enlightenment after joining the Heavenly Martial Sect, all the enlightenment up to that point remained here.


If this place were left intact, a second and third Gwak Nosaeng would undoubtedly appear. Pyo Wol threw his fist at the wall.




With one punch, the murals and the walls inscribed with magic crumbled like a sandcastle.


Pyo Wol destroyed the remaining walls as well. He completely erased it. Even if someone else found this place in the future, they would not be able to obtain any enlightenment.


If anyone found out about this, they might blame him.


They might say that he erased precious magic and secrets from the world.


They might even say that it wasn't these arts that were the problem, but people.


However, Pyo Wol thought differently.


While it was clear that people were the root of the problem, leaving behind the wrong vision that fueled human desire was also a problem.


Perhaps someone with good intentions could use it correctly, but as long as there was even a slight chance that someone unfit could take it, it was best to eliminate it entirely.


After breaking all the walls, Pyo Wol said to Yong Seol-ran.


"Let's get out of here."




As Yong Seol-ran replied, there was a sudden rumble.


The entire stone chamber shook as if it would collapse.


It was as if an earthquake had occurred in the area.


Yong Seol-ran's face changed drastically.




"Let's get out first. Being trapped underground again would be absolutely disgusting."




The two hurriedly deployed their lightness skills.


The tremors continued as they ran down the passageway where the traps with mechanisms had been installed.


Due to the impact, the mechanism did not activate anymore.


This allowed them to reach the surface unharmed.


What greeted the two of them was a devastated landscape.
