With the sound of Goff’s shout, my body instantly shot up into the air. Goff has sent me into the sky. I’m not sure how much power he had applied, but I began to rise up into the sky with incredible speed. All the while, I was focused on the bastard’s neck.
I would change the sword that was too big to be called a sword with ancient fire. If this was an execution as part of a judgment, I would be able to cause a fatal injury on the beast of the east. I wasn’t sure if I could apply enough power as I could not plant my feet, but I still pulled both my arms far back over my head while I was in mid flight. The power was redirected towards the arms, and every magic power in my body has been concentrated at my shoulders and arms.
I swung the sword as the bastard’s neck came closer and closer.
With burning flames, the sword drew an oblique line.The timing was perfect. I could feel the bastard’s body being cut. The hide that was supposed to very hard was beginning to get cut like as if it was tofu. However, as if it was not strong enough to cut off the bastard’s muscles and bones, the ancient fire began to lose steam.
However, I would cut.
I, once again, switched the ancient fire with the great big sword.
Another opportunity to hand down the deadly judgment, I would even cut through the bastard’s bones.
The area of the bastard’s neck was too wide to do it by one person.
However, I kept swinging the sword.
The spewing blood hit my eyes, but I did not pay any attention to it.
I would slice.
I would cut it off.
I could not remember how many times I have initiated the ancient powers. But my body kept moving forward.
Finally, it was when I have completely passed through the bastard.
One of the bastard’s heads became completely severed.
“Blood…Blood Dagger has cut off the beast’s neck!”
The sound of cheers came from below. It was an awesome scene even when I thought about it. The feeling must have been a mutual one from their side as well. As I looked down as I was falling to the ground, I saw that the swordsmen of the Blood Dagger Clan were cheering. If they asked me to do it again, I would have most likely failed.
This was the scene that was made possible by the momentum obtained from the accumulated damages, caused by Black Spear Clan, and the effects of Goff’s power. Perhaps, it has been burned by the ancient fire as there was no blood spewing out of the severed neck.
“ 크에에에에에에에! ”
As if to be sharing its pain, the beast of the east was wailing as it rolled on the ground. Even then the arrows and magic spells kept piercing into the bastard. In the mean while, Mev caught me as I was fast falling down to the ground.
She held me with both hands, perhaps, because she felt I was heavy, but the speed at which I was falling definitely slowed. Fluttering her wings restlessly, Mev spoke to me as she looked at me with awe.
“That…That was great! Leader, are you OK!?”
In fact, I’ve used up a lot of magic power. However, she didn’t need to know. As we landed, Mev looked at me with sparkling eyes, and even Baek Ahyeon and her followers were praying. As they have witnessed something incredible, I could understand them, yet the situation was not all that relaxing.
“Mev, move the main unit to the back now. The swordsmen, too, will be moved back for a little bit. From now, everyone is to follow Hakajin’s orders. It’s true for Gara and Orbo too. Ogres, once again, get ready to throw the ropes, and Black Spear, too, stand by for a bit.”
Nodding her head as if she understood the situation in my urgent voice, Mev immediately disappeared into the midst of the main unit. Its attention was drawn again. The troops needed to be reorganized.
If there was a problem, it was that I’ve digested the bastard’s threat level. I raised the ends of my lips. It was because the eyes of Hydra, the beast of the east, were certainly looking at me.
Although the beast appeared to have energy left, it was certainly exhausted as well. What was motivating the beast of the east was none other than wrath. I felt the hostility that it was directing at me for cutting off its neck.
I wasn’t sure if I could do it, but I had to make it happen. As the brief stand still situation ended, the bastard immediately began to charge at me. As I stealthily looked over at the main unit, it appeared that they have understood my order since they were moving away from the bastard’s range. Upon estimating the distance in my head, I was certain that Hakajin was controlling the troops.
As the bastard charged at me, it tried to stamp down on me with one of its feet.
‘I can dodge.’
The effective area was wide, but with my agility, I thought that it was an attack that I could easily dodge. However, the real threatening one was the middle head as a shadow swooped on me instantly. It was when I tried to move back in my attempt to dodge it.
Someone’s enormous backside came into my view. It was someone, wearing a shield on his backside and holding on to the bastard’s two teeth with his hands. His muscles kept bulging as if to explode. Shaking his hands, he was holding the beast’s mouth, as much as possible, preventing it from moving forward. I felt the heat coming off of his back.
There was only one who could do such a thing among the three united tribes.
It was Goff.
Having pushed off the bastard’s head, Goff took out the shield from his back once again. After seeing that, I jumped on Goff’s back and made a long cut on the bastard’s neck. Goff, too, screaming madly, took out his ax. As I was looking at the big swinging ax, which appeared to have been impossible to hold on to, I saw blood spewing out of the bastard’s neck with a dull sound.
Not a bad continuation.
The hunt for the beast of the east was coming to an end.
