Park Nam Hoon, Yu Jin Sang, and Yoo Kwang Sung watched the battle from the
sideline. They ordered their subordinates to retreat as the Warlord Guild's
people tried to escape from the battleeld. The two shadows kept chasing them
as the arrow never stopped either. The tide of the battle turned to their victory
as it had become a one-sided massacre.
Cha Hyuk, Song Shi Eun, and the other three people regrouped with Park Nam
Hoon. They were ordered to step back from the battle before the slaughter
pushed the Warlord Guild back. This was not a battle anymore, but a slaughter
eld. Even the Warlord Guild's Vice Leader could not do anything before his
neck was slit open by the shadow.
"What is this, Boss?" Cha Hyuk or people call him the number ve of the Legion
Guild, asked Park Nam Hoon for an explanation. Not knowing what helped
them was also scary for him, so he wanted to know what happened. Song Shi
Eun and the other three looked at Park Nam Hoon, waiting for the explanation.
"What else? They are the reinforcements from the Tang Empire. Your Majesty
Emperor has arrived as he promised us in the arena," Park Nam Hoon smiled
wryly. While he was relieved that the Warlord Guild was slaughtered, it did not
make him feel better as he compared the three individuals with his guild's
strength. Three individuals were much stronger than a whole guild's force.
That gave him relief but also a warning at the same time, he should never get
on the Tang Empire's bad side.
Cha Hyuk, Song Shi Eun, Yoo Kwang Sung, and Park Jin Sang knew the Tang
Empire was so strong, but they did not expect the Tang Empire was so strong to
this extent. They had the same thoughts as Park Nam Hoon, comparing their
guild's strength to the three individuals. The dragon was not even here to help.
Cha Hyuk turned his head and looked to the top of the wall, searching for the
individual who red the arrows. He found an exceptional beauty with long ears,
shooting the arrows as if she was in a practice range. There was no
exaggeration in her movement, pulling three arrows from the quiver and
shooting it at once, killing three people at the same time. And before, he was
thinking of hitting the elf girl in the arena during the Earth Tournament. Those
thoughts disappeared now as he realized that the elf girl was on another level
The slaughter was over when all the Warlord Guild's people were killed. All the
corpses scattered around the road, some of the bodies lost their heads, some of
them lost half of their bodies, and the remaining bodies had an arrow in their
foreheads. As the battle was over, the two shadows returned to the wall. One
was a creature similar to a cat, and the other one was a bunny girl.
"Don't stare at them too much; you guys may displease them," Park Nam Hoon
reminded his friends. "Let's greet Your Majesty Emperor and remember the
formality. He is our Emperor, and we are his subject now. Watch your manners
in front of Your Majesty."
If it was before, Cha Hyuk would make fun of his guild leader for that. Emperor
and Your Majesty were things from the ancient time; who would use those titles
in this time? But he must think thrice to joke around like that. His life and his
friend's lives might be at stake if he said something that might oend The Tang
The eight people knelt in front of Tang Shaoyang and greeted him respectfully.
They did not forget to thank Tang Shaoyang for coming, hailing praise for their
"Skip the formality for now. Let's focus on the four guilds and get rid of the
threat rst. I can't stay too long because I have to visit the next regions," Tang
Shaoyang waved his hand and told them to get up.
"Yes, Your Majesty," The eight people stood up, and Park Nam Hoon spoke up
as he was the Legion Guild's leader, "Only two guilds attacked our territory,
and we are not sure of the Giant Guild and the Black Knight Guild. Their
territories are quite far from Seoul, and I think we are safe for now. But my
people will patrol the border, so the two guilds can't sneak into Seoul."
"I think you don't need to worry about the Giant Guild anymore. They had
killed them all when we rst arrived, so let's focus on the Black Knight Guild,"
Tang Shaoyang pointed at Aleesa and Sylvia with his thumb as he told Park
Nam Hoon about his encounter with the patrol team and also the Giant Guild's
force. "Since we have taken care of the three guilds, we can narrow it down
where the Black Knight Guild will attack. Do you know the Black Knight Guild's
territory? You can focus in that direction instead of spreading your force. Of
course, you still need two or three patrol teams in other areas as well, just in
case they come from somewhere else."
"This is bad! We have to return immediately, Park Nam Hoon!" Park Jin Sang
immediately remembered what Chup Seung-Gi told him during the ght. The
Black Knight Guild and the Giant Guild would secretly enter Seoul from the
other sides of their territory. If that was the case, there was a big chance the
Black Knight Guild had already entered Seoul and headed toward their smart
base. He told Park Nam Hoon what Chup Seung-Gi told him.
"Leave the injured here and bring the people who can still ght with us!" Park
Nam Hoon sent his order. He only left one team in the smart base to keep the
base in order, and that one team comprised forty people. If the Black Knight
Guild sneaked into Seoul and headed toward the base, it would be just another
slaughter. In this regard, it was his people who would get slaughtered by the
Black Knight Guild.
"If that's the case, then let them come to your smart base. It's much more
convenient for them to come to us rather than searching for them in this big
city. I left my people in your smart base, so your people should be ne even if
the Black Knight Guild comes to your smart base," Tang Shaoyang assured Park
The eight people exchanged looks, but deep inside, they were relieved that the
Tang Empire's people safeguarded their smart base. After a little hesitation,
Park Nam Hoon braced himself to ask, "May we know how many people you
have, Your Majesty?"
"Two," Tang Shaoyang replied at ease, and there was a reason for him to be
easy. The two people in the Legion Guild's smart base were Zaneos the Void
Sword and Bronson the Executioner. Both were Grade SS Spirit, so the smart
base was extremely safe under their watch.
Song Shi Eun was about to say something. She opened her mouth, but no words
came out as she recalled what had just happened. The three individuals that
managed to wipe out the Warlord Guild's force, so those two people should be
enough to face the whole Black Knight Guild since The Black Knight Guild was
weaker compared to the Warlord Guild. The eight people did not say anything
since Tang Shaoyang said so.
"It seems you guys missed a few preys," Tang Shaoyang furrowed his brow and
turned toward the battleeld once more. Those words were directed to Sylvia,
Aleesa, and Greed. "It's rare for you guys to make mistakes like this. Especially
those few people are weaker than you guys." His eyes locked into the three-
story building. He saw ve people inside the building through his Spirit Eyes.
"Mnnn…" Tang Shaoyang nodded his head. "I think I understand why you
guys miss them. They can hide their presence quite well." He then pointed at
the building and added, "There are ve people inside that building."
Everyone followed Tang Shaoyang's index nger. They did not have Spirit Eyes
or use a detection skill, so they did not nd the ve people. Rosalie, who did not
participate in the battle, spread her Mana Sense, and she sensed the ve people
in the building. "Yes, there are indeed ve people on the upper oor of that
With Rosalie's armation, Aleesa took out her bow from her inventory. She
pulled the bowstring as mana condensed, forming an arrow. That was not just a
normal arrow, but a mana arrow. She aimed for the upper oor of the building
and shot the arrow.
The strong gust hit everyone's face as the arrow sped up toward the building.
Sure enough, ve people broke out from the upper oor window to escape from
the arrow. As the mana arrow hit the building, the arrow exploded, bringing
down the whole building.
"You nally come out, little mouses," Aleesa pulled her bow once more as ve
mana arrows formed on her bow. Five mana arrows for ve people as the rst
arrow was to force the ve people to escape from the building. With the ve
targets in her sight, it would be easy for her to hit them all.
At this moment, one individual broke out from the group and rushed toward
them. Tang Shaoyang was surprised by this individual's movement as it was
similar to Lu An's shadow movement. "STOP THE ATTACK! WE ARE NOT YOUR
ENEMY!" The female voice resounded in the air with desperation in it.
"She is the Shadow Queen!" Park Nam Hoon blurted and raised his hand.
"Please stop your attack, Lady Aleesa. She is not part of the Warlord Guild and
also not from the other three guilds. She is the Shadow Queen from Haven."
