Zaneos and Bronson were standing on guard right on the rooftop of the Legion
Guild's smart base. That was the best spot because they could see the
surroundings very clearly. Zaneos sat on the bench on the rooftop with his eyes
closed. Meanwhile, Bronson was walking around at the edge of the rooftop. The
Executioner did not have the same patience as Zaneos, who could sit there without moving for fteen minutes.
"Hah, this is boring. I can't bear it," Bronson complained. He then glanced at
the Demon Swordsman, "Is it okay if I leave you here alone, Zaneos? I will look
for the enemy rather than waiting for them to come."
"You can leave, but I will tell Master that you leave the smart base because you
are boring," Zaneos opened his eyes and replied.
"How can you snitch to Master? How old are you?" Bronson came over and sat
next to Zaneos. "What about sparring against me, Zaneos? Let's nd out who's stronger between us."
"Remember our task, Bronson. Our task is not to kill the enemy but protect the
base while Master is away," Zaneos did not give the Undead a denite answer.
"If we ght here, we will destroy the smart base from the impact of our battle.
If you want to be responsible for that, then I don't mind ghting you."
"Forget about it. If you snitch to Master, it's me who proposes the sparring
battle; Master will never call me out again. I don't want to be stuck at the Spirit
Space forever," Bronson shook his head and threw the idea of ghting Zaneos.
He and Zaneos were both Grade SS Spirit, so he wanted to know who was stronger between them.
"Also, the sparring ght can't determine who is stronger between us. If we
want to know who's stronger between us, then we have to ght to the death,
using everything we have to win. I don't think I will use everything in the
sparring ght. You are just proposing something meaningless," Zaneos closed his eyes again after that.
"That's true," Bronson nodded his head. "Guess I will sleep too,"
Bronson just closed his eyes, but Zaneos opened his eyes and stood up from the
bench. He looked toward the northeast side direction, the opposite direction
where his Master was right now. "We have guests, Bronson. Didn't you just
complain you are bored? It's time to work now."
Bronson opened his eyes and instantly appeared next to Zaneos. He looked
toward the north and found a large group of people coming toward them. "If I
recall correctly, all the Legion Guild's main force was deployed to the west
territory. There's no way those people are from the patrol team, right?" Zaneos
recalled Tang Shaoyang's conversation with In Youngsoo. In Youngsoo told his
Master that the main force was in the west to ght against the two guilds'
invasion, so this large group was an enemy.
"You are right, so let's not waste our time anymore. We have to intercept them
before they can reach the smart base. It will be bad if these weaklings get hurt
while we ght the enemy," Bronson did not wait for Zaneos's response as he
pulled out his long reaver, holding them in each of his hands. He was ready to got at any moment.
"I guess that's true. We can't ght them if we are too close to the civilians,"
Zaneos nodded and let out a sigh. "I was a demon who slaughtered countless
people before, and I have to be sacriced for the peace between human and
demon. Yet, now, I am protecting the humans; fate is surely funny." The Void
Sword muttered in a low voice as he found it was hilarious that he had to ght
for humans now.
Then the two spirits jumped o from the rooftop, heading toward the incoming group.
"Hahaha… I never thought we were inltrating the Legion Guild's territory so
easily," A man in his early forties laughed as he strolled on the road without
obstruction. His name was Sim Ki Nam, The Black Knight Guild's guild leader.
"It seems The Warlord Guild and the Shade Guild are doing their job well. We
don't even encounter the famous patrol team of the Legion Guild."
"Hehe, I told you, Sir Ki Nam. We just have to play smart instead of using brute
force," Oh Jae Wook, the Black Knight Guild's vice leader, let out a chuckle. If
his Guild Leader is happy, then he would be happy as well. "We just need to
meet with Sir Tae Bong and his secretary, Bak Dong Min. After that, the Legion
Guild's level 2 smart base is ours."
"How long until we reach your guild's smart base, Man-Shik?" Sim Ki Nam
turned his head and asked the man who followed him closely. Man-Shik was
Council Member Tae Bong's people and was tasked to lead the Black Knight
Guild to the smart base.
That was right; Council Member Tae Bong betrayed the Legion Guild. The
former Seoul mayor realized that he only had a little power in the Legion Guild
despite his position as the Council Member. The survivors idolized Park Nam
Hoon and his friends, more than him, who was the former mayor. He was not
satised with that and planned to change the ship, getting rid of the Legion
Guild and using the Black Knight Guild to rebuild his country. Then he would be
the President of the new country; that was his ambition.
Meanwhile, Sim Ki Nam also took the risk of betraying the World Government
and the other three guilds. He was using the three guilds to weaken the Legion
Guild's main force. He would take the level 2 smart base for himself and get rid
of whoever won the battle. That way, The Black Knight Guild would become the
sole guild in South Korea. He had the ambition to be the twelfth major faction on Earth.
"We should arrive at the smart base in ve to ten minutes by walking, Sir,"
Man-Shik replied respectfully. He was just an errand boy, so he made sure not
to get on the bad side of these people. Tae Bong promised an easy life for him
and his family after the Black Knight Guild took over the Legion Guild. He did
not have to ght the zombies and did not need to worry about food anymore.
"You heard them, Bronson? Don't kill the guy called Man-Shik. I think Master
will be delighted if we present that Man-Shik alive."
Sim Ki Nam, Oh Jae Wook, Man-Shik, and the people behind them stopped
their steps as two gures stood in the middle of the road, blocking them. Sim Ki
Nam observed the two gures. The one on the left was a zombie with armor,
and the one on the right was unknown. He could not see it clearly because of the
straw hat. "Who are you!?" He subconsciously blurted out.
Bronson ignored Sim Ki Nam and asked Zaneos for the last time. "For the last
conrmation, so I can kill all of them except for that Man-Shik guy, right?"
"What about another twenty people, including Man-Shik? We need a few of
them alive so Master can question them. Leave those three in the front alive as
well. They seem to be important people, so they should have more information
than the others," Zaneos pointed at Kim Si Nam and Oh Jae Wook. "You can't
kill them, but you can cut their limbs."
Haven was not a guild but a group comprised of thirteen people. While they
were only thirteen people, no guild dared to oend them as those thirteen
people were high-level players. It was unclear how many of them were Epic
Ranks, but people guessed that at least eight of them were Epic Ranks. That was
the main reason why the guilds did not dare to trouble or oend Haven.
"They have been helping us to save the survivors as well. So, they are not our
enemies," Park Nam Hoon ended his explanation about The Haven after
successfully stopping Lady Aleesa from shooting the mana arrows. He did not
know what would happen, but he was pretty sure that The Haven would not
remain unscathed if Lady Aleesa shot the arrows.
At this moment, the female in black clothes managed to reach the wall and
meet with the group. A woman with long black wavy hair, around 1.8 meters
tall, walked toward them. Her face was covered in black clothing as well, from
the nose down to her neck, typical of an assassin outt in the movie. She had
two swords on her back waist, and her black eyes observed the group as she got closer.
"Long time no see, Shadow Queen—" Cha Hyuk waved his right hand at the
woman with a big smile, but the Shadow Queen cut his words short, "My name
is So Yeon Hee. You can call me Yeon." Of course, this was not her rst time
meeting with Park Nam Hoon and his friends. That introduction meant for the
four foreign faces, Tang Shaoyang, and the three girls.
Park Nam Hoon was about to introduce Tang Shaoyang to Yeon, but he quickly
realized it was not that easy to do that. Tang Shaoyang was an Emperor, so he
had to treat him above everyone else. He could not just say, 'This is Tang
Shaoyang, our Emperor.' He felt like it was inappropriate as he needed to be
more formal around Tang Shaoyang.
"Good evening, Yeon," Yu Jin Sang took a step forward and smiled. He bowed
his head toward Tang Shaoyang and continued, "This is Your Majesty Emperor
of the Tang Empire. From today onward, the Legion Guild is part of the Tang Empire."
Yeon Hee looked toward Tang Shaoyang as she did not expect this kind of
development. The Legion Guild that was known as the strongest guild in South
Korea, would bow their heads to the other factions. From the way Park Nam
Hoon and his friend acted around the man, it was very clear to her that this was
not a joke or a prank.
After that, Yu Jin Sang turned back to Yeon Hee with a serious look on his face.
"So, can you explain why you and your friend are staying with the Warlord
Guild? Depending on your answer, you can be our enemy."
