Chapter 40. Anubis (2)
[CH.#4w01/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun] : Block him!
I managed to lift my staff and blocked his fist.
A sharp vibration echoed from my arm to my shoulders, and I felt the pain. Oh Kwon-hyuk slammed his fist once more, and every time I blocked him with the staff, I could see the staff slowly cracking.
“How can you be so powerful!”
[CH.#4ww01/One Who Guides The Dead] : You. Weak thing….
“Shut up, you!”
As soon as the staff broke with a crackling sound, I kicked Oh Kwon-hyuk’s stomach. As he flinched, I took advantage as his large body paused for a moment. I came out from under him and hung behind his huge back. It was an attempt to make him faint somehow, but unfortunately, it was in vain.
Oh Kwon-hyuk tried to move his body around as if to annoy me, who was hanging from behind, but he grabbed my hair and pulled it down.
I was caught without a moment’s break. With a strong hand strangling my neck, I exhaled shakily and finally used the skill.
[Skill : Hand Of The Golden Sun]
[You used a skill. Skill : Hand Of The Golden Sun]
[Skill: Hand of Golden Sun has been canceled.]
[Your body is covered by the wings of truth.]
[The constellation, ‘The One Who Knows The Fall’ is synchronizing with the body.]
[The constellation, ‘One Who Guides The Dead,’ grants his powers to his contractor ‘Oh Kwon-hyuk.’]
[You are being led by death.]
[You approach death.]
The identity of the constellation ‘One Who Guides The Dead’ is Anubis. A god with the head of a jackal who leads the dead into the afterlife.
As long as the conditions he gave to his contractors were met, he was able to demonstrate a near-omnipotent ability. <Wings of Truth> was a skill that could speed up the death of an opponent who has met the necessary conditions. Though I don’t know why it’s called <Wings of Truth>.
For example, a person, who is destined to die by being hit by a car, would be killed by a car within a few days, and a person, who is destined to die by a robber, could be killed by a robber as soon as he turned an alleyway. As far as I know, this skill can only be used on certain people once every few years.
Did you just use it on me?
[CH.#4ww01/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun] : You crazy bastard!
I’m about to choke to death right now. I can’t believe he used this skill on me. As I struggled to escape from Oh Kwon-hyuk’s grip, I felt my body slowly losing strength.
And at that moment, a great vibration resounded across the ground.
The black smoke that was blocking my eyes disappeared in an instant. A light flashed in Oh Kwon-hyuk’s eyes, and when he saw what he was doing, he let go in a panic. As I was barely able to breathe, coughing and clutching my neck, I heard a loud vibration again.
The black smoke that filled the room quickly slipped through the door. Then, Lee Myung-won, Kim Yong-tae, and Yoo Jin-woo could finally be seen. Everyone seemed to be baffled by the smoke that was blocking their view.
But that wasn’t the problem.
This vibration was clearly audible and coming from outside.
[CH.#4ww01/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun] : No way.
[CH.#4ww01/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun] : Is this The Fall of the world you were talking about?
[CH.#4ww01/One Who Guides The Dead] : The Fall?
[CH.#4ww01/One Who Knows The Fall] : No, this isn’t it.
[CH.#4ww01/One Who Knows The Fall] : Fuck you.
[CH.#4w0/One Who Knows The Fall] : What would have happened if I died?
[CH.#4w0/One Who Is More Dazzling Than The Sun] : How would I know that, you punk!
Lee Myung-won, who was bewildered, hurriedly approached me. There was a sound coming from the radio he was holding.
“Ga-hyun-ssi, are you alright? Your neck….”
“It was my fault.”
Oh Kwon-hyuk spoke in a calm tone and grabbed my shoulder, making me stand up. His fingertips grazed the nape of my neck. It was cold. Even without looking at it, I could tell that my neck had been properly scarred with a handprint.
I frowned at Oh Kwon-hyuk’s words.
“You should be sorry.”
“I remember what I did… Could it be that… I used it on you?”
“I don’t know what it is, but I think you did. Rather than that, Lee Myung-won-ssi, you just got a call from outside, right?
“That’s right. Now….”
Lee Myung-won answered in a miserable voice.
“The monster has escaped from the dungeon into the city and is now closing into Seoul.”
The first monster incident was happening right now.
And I was sure now, that I….
Will die today.
