Geum Pisang rubbed his neck tiredly.

“It’s not easy.”

As the head of Hao Clan’s Soyang branch, Geum Pisang handled many things.

Because he was capable, he was put in charge of an important branch like Soyang. What he was most proficient in was gathering and processing information.

In a city like Soyang, which is a transportation hub, a lot of information was gathered.

Merchants, visitors from other places, and ambassadors from foreign countries all come and go in Soyang.

Hao Clan’s eyes and ears were wide open to them.

They reported to Geum Pisang every detail that people spoke carelessly.

Geum Pisang listened to the numerous pieces of information passed on by his subordinates and selected the useful ones. From the selected information, he chose the most valuable and dug deeper.

The information he obtained in this way was so remarkable that even Hong Yushin, the chief inspector of Hao Clan, acknowledged it. But even such a man as Geum Pisang seemed drained after his meeting with Eun-yo.

“How could such a young girl…….”

Eun-Yo was unbelievable.

The analytical ability of the girl, who couldn’t even see, overwhelmed him.

Because of that, he was overwhelmed throughout their conversation.

He couldn’t remember the last time he had been so overwhelmed by an opponent.

He was drained, but he enjoyed it.

It had been a long time since he had spoken to someone with similar knowledge and perspective.

He learned a lot from talking to Eun-yo.

She was proficient in everything, but she was especially sensitive to the flow of money.

Talking to her allowed him to see things he hadn’t seen before.

Thanks to that, he felt his horizons had broadened.

“Phew! I should rest today and start moving again tomorrow.”

Geum Pisang returned to the Soyang Residence.

The Soyang residence looked no different from any ordinary mansion.

They deliberately chose a mansion that would not attract attention from others as their base.

Upon returning to the Soyang branch, Geum Pisang immediately began writing a letter.

It was a report to the higher-ups.

It briefly summarized his discussions with Eun-yo and the information that had come into the Hao clan today.

He tied the summary report to the leg of a carrier pigeon beside him.

Geum Pisang opened the window and sent the carrier pigeon flying.

The trained bird flew through the night sky and disappeared in an instant.

“Phew!”

Geum Pisang finally let out a sigh of relief.

The long, long day was finally over.

That’s when it happened.

“Ugh!”

A stifled groan came from outside.

For a moment, Geum Pisang felt goosebumps all over his body.

He quickly listened to the outside.

“Aaack!”

The groaning sounded again.

‘A surprise attack?’

The Hao Clan branch was disguised as an ordinary mansion.

They kept the number of people inside the mansion to a minimum to avoid attracting attention.

The people inside the mansion were always conscious of the outside world and acted cautiously. Naturally, they would never raise their voices or scream for no reason.

It was clear that someone had ambushed the Soyang branch.

Geum Pisang pushed a bookshelf against the wall. Then, a hidden space appeared.

It was an emergency passage to the outside.

When a Hao Clan branch was ambushed, the job of the branch leader was not to fight back.

It was his job to escape safely, even if it meant sacrificing all of his men.

There was no telling what disaster would befall the entire region if the information that Hao Clan knew was leaked.

Especially in a branch as important as the Shoyang branch, the information the branch leader knew would be invaluable.

Even if all subordinates were sacrificed, he had to survive.

Before entering the emergency passage, Geum Pisang looked back.

“Gah!”

Another scream sounded.

It was just a short scream, but Geum Pisang recognized the voice.

‘Sogeol!’

He was the guard protecting his residence.

He didn’t know who the attackers were, but they were rapidly approaching his residence at a very fast pace.

There was no time to waste.

Geum Pisang entered the emergency passage and closed the door disguised as a bookshelf.

Thud!

With a dull noise behind him, Geum Pisang sprinted through the underground passage. The passage was connected to a mansion located about 20 li away from the Soyang branch.

That mansion was also owned by the Hao Clan.

It was purchased for the purpose of escaping during emergencies.

Thud!

Geum Pisang opened the door and stepped outside.

Fortunately, there was nobody in the mansion.

It seemed that the enemies who had ambushed him had not noticed this place.

Geum Pisang hesitated for a moment.

‘Where should I go?’

He knew the safest place in Soyang.

It was Hoyeon Guesthouse where Pyo Wol was staying.

If he could hide at the Hoyeon Guesthouse, he could save his life. However, it would reveal that Pyo Wol was in Soyang.

As the head of the Hao Clan branch, he could not expose a guest’s identity.

His choice was in the opposite direction of the Hoyeon Guesthouse.

Geum Pisang sprinted through the night streets of Soyang at full speed.

It was so late at night that not even the shadows of people could be seen on the streets, which made it even creepier.

“I need to get away from here as fast as possible.

Geum Pisang used all his strength and performed his Qigong.

That’s when it happened.

“Where are you running so fast?”

A voice came from right next to him.

When Geum Pisang looked to the side, he saw someone running at the same speed as him.

He was shocked to the point of losing his breath.

It was because he hadn’t noticed the person until he opened his mouth.

And he was running right next to him.

His hair was disheveled, and his beard covered his chest, all that was visible on his face were his eyes, emitting a creepy glare, and his nose.

The black robes he wore gave off an eerie smell of blood. It was a different color, but it was clear that it had been stained black by a great deal of blood.

‘Damn it!’

Geum Pishang didn’t answer the monster’s question and increased his speed, and the monster muttered.

“Hao Clan people really have no manners.”

The monster swung his hand.

A powerful gust of wind shot out and slammed into Geum Pisang’s back.

Crash!

“Ugh!”

Geum Pisang screamed in pain and tumbled to the ground.

His back was ripped open to the point where his bones were exposed.

The power was truly immense.

“Ugh!”

Geum Pisang groaned as he lay on the ground.

The monster walked over to him and squatted down.

“You’re Geum Pisang, the head of the Hao Clan’s Soyang branch, right?”

“Wh-who are you?”

“Who do you think I am?”

“How would I know?”

“You’re the head of the Hao Clan’s branch and you don’t know this old man, do you think this will help?”

Suddenly, the monster raised his hand. A faint blue light surrounded it, shining like a jewel.

Geum Pisang’s eyes widened.

‘Blue… Sky Hand?’

Blue Sky Hand was a renowned martial arts technique that shook the world.

“Are you Man… Slaughter?”

“Ah, you do know me.”

The monster, Manslaughter, chuckled sinisterly.

In contrast, Geum Pisang’s face turned deathly pale.

If his opponent was truly Manslaughter, there was no chance for him to survive here.

Although he ranked fourth among the Eight Constellations, Manslaughter was known as the most ruthless.

Manslaughter asked,

“Do you know?”

“Know what?”

“The whereabouts of the Reaper.”

“I don’t know.”

“Hehe! Then why are your eyes so shaky?This old man doesn’t like lying children very much.”

“…”

Instead of answering, Geum Pisang gritted his teeth. It was an expression of his intention to say nothing.

Watching Geum Pisang, Manslaughter laughed.

It was impossible to tell if he was really laughing, but the twitching of the beard around his mouth suggested so.

Manslaughter said,

“Judging by the fact that you recognized my Blue Sky Hand, it seems that the Hao Clan’s intelligence is quite useful. But do you know? This old man has another skill besides the Blue Sky Hand.”

“What is it?”

“Hmph! You will tell me. Everything you know.”

In that instant, Geum Pishang bit his tongue.

He was trying to commit suicide and protect his secrets. However, before he could bite his tongue, Manslaughter grabbed his jaw and dislocated it.

“Ugh!”

“You’re not allowed to die until I say so.”

Manslaughter laughed.
***
Pyo Wol got up from the bed.

As he raised his body, the figure of the woman lying beside him was revealed.

The woman with the cascading black hair covering her chest was none other than the divine physician’s granddaughter, Gi Seon-hye.

As Pyo Wol got up, Gi Seon-hye also sat up.

Covering her chest with a blanket, she got out of bed. Her appearance was astonishingly sensual.

She always wore shabby clothes while taking care of patients. No one knew that she was hiding such a tempting body under her shabby clothes.

She walked up to Pyo Wol’s back and hugged his waist.

She felt a tingling sensation in her back.

Pyo Wol remained still.

Gi Seon-hye whispered.

“Are you always this rough?”

“…”

“It’s so different from your appearance that it’s surprising.”

“Did you not like it?”

“Of course not.”

Gi Seon-hye smiled playfully.

She was so different from her first meeting, but Pyo Wol wasn’t surprised.

He knew that most women he met acted differently in private than they did in public.

Gi Seon-hye was a woman who was always trying to save sick patients, but she was also a woman.

Naturally, she wanted to date someone and share love. However, the situation was not ideal, and she was conscious of others’ gazes, so she restrained herself.

To her, who had no intention of getting married, Pyo Wol was a great partner.

Pyo Wol was so handsome that he could stir her usually cold heart. Plus, he had a captivating charm about him.

The moment she saw his face, Gi Seon-hye’s heart was completely shaken.

Also, she appreciated that he didn’t try to control her just because they had been intimate for one night. So, she seduced Pyo Wol, and he gave in to her allure.

The young couple spent the night exploring each other.

Gi Seon-hye realized for the first time that she had such passion. She tormented Pyo Wol as if there were no tomorrow.

Hugging Pyo Wol tightly, Gi Seon-hye said,

“Because of today’s events, there should be no problems. So, don’t use what happened today as a reason to ask me for anything.”

“Don’t worry, I won’t.”

“Don’t forget that.”

Gi Seon-hye smiled and let go of Pyo Wol.

When Pyo Wol turned around, she blushed. It was because she was still naked.

Trying to maintain a calm expression, Gi Seon-hye said,

“I need to go now. If I go in late, my grandfather will be suspicious.”

She dropped the blanket covering her chest and put on her clothes.

The traces of their love were left all over her fair body.

When she was finally fully dressed, Gi Seon-hye pressed her lips to Pyo-wol’s. After a deep kiss, she smiled and said.

“I’ll see you later. Goodbye for now.”

She then opened the door and left.

Pyo Wol, who had been staring at the door for a while, also got dressed.

By the time he finished dressing, Gwia appeared from somewhere and climbed onto Pyo Wol’s legs and up to his chest

Gwia’s belly was plump, as if he had been feasting somewhere.

Pyo Wol picked up Gwia and stepped outside.

He and Gi Seon-hye had slept in a different guest house, not in the Hoyeon guest house. They couldn’t help but be conscious of the eyes of those around them.

The sun hadn’t risen yet, so there were no people on the streets.

Pyo Wol walked alone on the deserted street.

A morning breeze blew in.

And it carried the scent of blood.
