Reaper of the Drifting Moon Chapter 494

September 12, 2023 • 12 min read • 548 views

The outside was noisy.

No screams were heard, but the sounds of breaking and bursting were undeniably reaching him.

Occasionally, Eun-yo and Nam Shin-woo’s battle cries could be heard as well.

“This is what a fight with assassins is like.”

The Divine physician’s gaze deepened.

Not a single scream until the moment of death. Even the occasional scream was merely a momentary outburst of something deeply suppressed.

Truly, they were vicious fellows.

If you make enemies with these men, you will have to give up sleeping peacefully until you die.

The divine physician, who had led a relatively smooth life, did not want to become an enemy to these people. However, they were already his enemies.

If it became known that he was involved, the master of the Blood Demons would never remain idle.

“All this just because of this guy.”

The divine physician looked down at Pyo Wol, who was lying on the ground with silver needles all over his body.

Pyo Wol was still unconscious.

Countless injuries covered his pale flesh.

A special ointment made by the divine physician was generously applied on top of the wounds. The special ointment was highly effective on external injuries.

Blood crusts had already formed on the areas where it had been applied.

“Sigh!”

The divine physician sighed.

He had done everything he could.

He had transfused Nam Shin-woo’s blood and performed the Great Rebirth and Reincarnation Technique.

All that remained was Pyo Wol’s will and resilience.

The stronger his will and the more resilient his body, the sooner he would wake up.
He just hoped he wouldn’t wake up too late.

Boom!

The sounds outside were becoming clearer and clearer.

It was not a good sign.

It meant that the enemies were getting closer.

Nam Shin-woo, Do Yeonsan, and Eun-yo were fighting the enemies with all their might.

The maze had kept them somewhat evenly matched, but even that had reached its limit.

More people were bypassing Nam Shin-woo and going through the Maze Formation, and the burden on Eun-yo, who was responsible for the final defense, was growing.

She was somehow holding on by squeezing out her last remaining strength, but even that was reaching its limit, which could be felt beyond the wall.

Gwia seemed to feel uneasy as well, raising its head and repeatedly flicking its tongue.

It was the first time Gwia had shown such agitation.

That was when it happened.

Bang!

With a bang, someone burst through the wall and sprawled across the room between the two of them.

“Cough!”

It was Eun-Yo, pinned against the wall and coughing up blood.

“Eun-yo!”

The divine physician hurriedly rushed to Eun-yo.

Eun-yo tried to lift her head and get up, but her legs failed her, and she slumped down.

Her pale face clearly showed that she had suffered severe internal injuries.

The divine physician quickly administered a Life-Saving Pill to her.

Eun-yo chewed on the Life-Saving Pill and looked at the hole in the wall.

Thump! Thump!

With the sound of footsteps, Blood Demons entered the room through the hole.

The Blood Demons briefly looked at Eun-yo and then turned their gaze to Pyo Wol, who was lying on the floor. A gleeful light filled their eyes.

They had finally secured their target.

Once they killed Pyo Wol, their mission would be complete.

Killing Pyo Wol, who was lying defenseless, would be easier than flipping their hand.

Swoosh!

They all raised their swords simultaneously, aiming at Pyo Wol.

“No!”

The divine physician screamed, but they ignored him and thrust their swords down.

Unable to watch the impending disaster, the divine physician tightly closed his eyes. However, the sounds he expected did not come.

Neither the sound of a sword cutting through flesh nor Pyo Wol’s screams.

The divine physician cautiously opened his eyes. The men who were stabbing their swords at Pyo Wol were shaking uncontrollably as if they were having seizures.

They foamed at the mouth and twisted in agony.

“Gwia.”

The divine physician quickly realized the reason.

Gwia was biting the ankle of the last man. Gwia had bitten all the ankles of the Blood Demons who had invaded the room.

Gwia was so small that the Blood Demons didn’t notice its presence. Their price for overlooking Gwia was death.

The invading Blood Demons all collapsed at once.

They didn’t even have a chance to use their internal energy to expel the poison. Gwia’s poison was that lethal.

Although all the Blood Demons had been killed, it was still too early to feel relieved.

Crash!

With a loud noise, half of the house was blown away. Pyo Wol, Eun-yo, and divine physician were now clearly exposed to the outside.

It was the Blood Demons who had blown away the house.

“Sister!”

Nam Shin-woo flew in from somewhere and quickly stood in front of Pyo Wol and Eun-yo.

Nam Shin-woo’s body was also soaked in blood, as if he had taken a blood bath.

He had truly done his best to stop the Blood Demons. But stopping the numerous Blood Demons alone was impossible.

Despite his best efforts, Nam Shin-woo was injured in the process of trying to stop the Blood Demons.

The Blood Demons broke through the mist barrier and appeared sporadically.

Despite Nam Shin-woo and Eun-yo’s efforts to stop them, there were still fifty of them left, and they all broke through the maze that was no longer effective.

Inside the Maze, Do Yeonsan and the Blood Demon leader were still engaged in a fierce battle.

They couldn’t count on Do Yeonsan’s help.

Eun-yo sighed and murmured.

“It seems this is as far as we can go.”

“Sister!”

“I’ll still try to fight to the death.”

At Eun-yo’s words, Nam Shin-woo’s expression hardened.

It was a situation where they couldn’t withstand the numerical onslaught.

Swoosh!

The Blood Demons charged at them all at once.

Their target was Pyo Wol alone.

They didn’t even bother looking at Eun-yo and Nam Shin-woo.

“No!”

“Aargh!”

At that moment, the desperate cries of the two rang out.

Swoosh!

Suddenly, a sharp sound of cutting through the air echoed.

At the same time, the neck of a Blood Demon who had been charging in the lead was sliced diagonally.

The Blood Demons stopped in surprise.

“Oh my! Who dares to touch my man so casually?”

TL/N- LOLOLOL

The woman in red appeared like a ghost in front of Pyo Wol. Blood dripped from the dagger in her hand. She was the one who had skillfully cut the neck of the leading Blood Demon.

A woman with a strange charm, both ordinary and beautiful, spun the dagger and smiled.

The Blood Demons hesitated at her cold smile.

Instinctively, they realized that she was one of their own kind.

Eun-yo cautiously asked the woman.

“Who… are you?”

For a moment, the woman’s red lips curved into a smile.

“Me? His girlfriend.”

“What?”

Eun-yo couldn’t understand the woman’s words for a moment and widened her eyes in surprise. Then, a playful smile deepened at the corners of the woman’s mouth.

“My name is Hong Ye-seol.”

“Hong Ye-seol?”

“I’m also the new leader of the Hundred Wraith Union.”

“Hundred Wraith.. Union?”

Eun-yo’s eyes trembled.

Although she didn’t know the name Hong Ye-seol, she couldn’t help but recognise the hundred wraith union.

Before Pyo Wol appeared, Hundred Wraith Union was known as the number one assassin group in the world.

The new Hundred Wraith Union leader, Hong Ye-seol, turned her gaze towards the Blood Demons.

Immediately, a deep furrow appeared in her brow.

It was because she sensed the scent of her own kind.

‘No, I’m mistaken!They smell foul.’

A properly bred assassin would be able to mask even their own body odor.

There were some targets of assassination who had a keen sense of smell. This was because if they were caught by such individuals, not only would they fail the assassination, but they could also lose their lives.

Through various experiences, assassins would erase not only their body odor but also the smallest features.

Thus, no scent or physical characteristic could be detected from assassins who had survived over a long time and perfected themselves.

But those in front of her gave off a faint stench. The scent was undetectable to normal humans, but fellow assassins could smell it

It didn’t make sense that Hong Ye-seol couldn’t smell it, even if ordinary assassins could.

‘They were raised artificially. By skipping steps in their growth, they have failed to realize and internalize the basics.’

There was a hint of anger in Hong Ye-seol’s eyes.

Since childhood, she had walked the path of an assassin and held pride in her occupation.

Others might dismiss it as a lowly profession, but she believed that she could find her way within this field.

The Tao of the Assassin.

In a way, it could be considered self-indulgent.

It was absurd to think that one could find Tao in a profession designed to kill others, but it was a profession that could not be sustained without self-deception.

There was no emotion in the eyes of the Blood Demons as they looked at her. Of course, as an assassin’s skill increased, they became better at hiding their emotions. But that was just hiding, not the absence of emotions.

The problem was that she could feel no emotions from the Blood Demons at all.

It was as if their emotions had been completely cauterized.

“Hmm! This is a dilemma. It’s been a long time since I’ve been here to see him, and here’s a whole bunch of these abominations? Let me make a suggestion. Just back off, and I’ll spare your life.”

“……”

The Blood Demon did not respond.

They advanced, holding their swords as if they had not heard Hong Ye-seol’s words.

Hong Ye-seol let out a soft sigh.

“Phew! This is how you want to come out, then I’ll just have to erase you from the world.”
Snap!

She flicked her finger.

Swoosh!

At that moment, dark shadows appeared silently behind the Blood Demons.

Nam Shin-woo and Eun Yo’s eyes widened in surprise.

Only then did the Blood Demons realize that there were other beings behind them.

“……”

As the Blood Demons hurriedly turned around, the black shadows attacked them.

Slash!

Swoosh!

In an instant, several Blood Demons lost their lives. However, it allowed the remaining Blood Demons to counterattack.

Clang!

The clash of swords created a cacophony of metallic noise.

There were no shouts, cheers, or screams.

It was a silent battle.

“Oh my goodness!”

“Hmm!”

Nam Shin-woo and Eun-yo gasped in awe.

They had never seen such a sight in their lives.

How they could move so violently to take each other’s lives and not make a single sound was beyond their common sense.

“Is this how assassins fight?”

Nam Shin-woo couldn’t close his open mouth.

The black shadows fighting the Blood Demons were none other than Hong Ye-seol’s subordinates.

The Black Shadow Assassins.

Elite assassins tasked with guarding the Hundred Wraith Union’s leader.

They were the Black Shadow Assassins, created solely to obey and protect the leader of the Hundred Wraith Union.

Even the top assassins of the Hundred Wraith Union, known as the Ten Blood Assassins, couldn’t underestimate them.

The fact that Hong Ye-seol had mobilized the Black Shadow Assassins meant she had become the new master of the Hundred Wraith Union.

Swish! Swoosh!

With a crashing sound, the sword light sliced through the air.

With each strike, more Blood Demons were killed.

The Blood Demon Corps was undoubtedly a group of assassins who had reached a high level. However, the Black Shadow Assassins was specialized in capturing assassins.

The Hundred Wraith Union’s leader stood at the pinnacle of the assassin world.

They commanded countless assassins, but in turn, they were also threatened with death by them.

Many assassins targeted the Hundred Wraith Union’s master, and the primary mission of the Black Shadow Assassins was to protect them from these threats.

As a result, the Black Shadow Assassins were highly skilled at detecting and confronting assassins.

They were not deceived by the illusionary tricks of the blood demons disappearing right in front of their eyes. Instead, they traced the residual energy waves left by them and found them eventually.

Swoosh!

They killed the Blood Demons as if a hunter was catching prey.

However, it wasn’t as if there were no casualties. The Blood Demons’ abilities were also formidable, so some of the Black Shadow Assassins members were killed as well. But neither the killers nor the killed uttered a single word.

The silent war continued for quite some time afterward.
