Chapter 156: Dad is Here

“M-Monster…”

Out of the 3 suicide bombings, none of them succeeded.

It was because after activating Overdrive, Kang Chul-In was able to stab through their hearts faster than they exploded.

Now’s my chance.

Kang Chul-In knew that while the enemy soldiers were afraid, he had to get past them and get in the Bittermoon territory. Even though he was strong, he wouldn’t be able to win against this many soldiers. He would run out of mana first.

“Altaica!”

Kang Chul-In called.

-Krrr!

Jumping towards him, the Altaica showed that it was still fine. Even though it had gotten a little injured due to the suicide bombers, the injuries weren’t that serious yet.

“Let’s go!”

As soon as Kang Chul-In got on the Altaica, it started to race towards the Bittermoon territory’s castle..

“S-Stop them!”

“Catch them!”

Even though the soldiers of Anatolia surrounded Kang Chul-In and the Altaica,

“Agh!!”

“Kuhuk…”

They were unable to stop Kang Chul-In, who had activated Overdrive. 

And combined with the weight and speed of the Altaica, it made sense that no one in front of them would be okay. 

Combined together, the two of them were able to create destructive power akin to that of Franz’ ‘Titan’.

If we can just get over the castle wall…

Looking at the castle wall of the Bittermoon territory, Kang Chul-In gritted his teeth.

If he got past that wall he would finally be able to meet Arshelly.

And since he had already been here, he would remember what was inside once he saw it again. And especially Polansky’s secret chamber; he knew the location perfectly since he had been shocked in his past life.

“Can you do it?”

With 20 metres remaining in between him and the wall, he asked the Altaica.

-Grrrrr!

The Altaica cried loudly. It seemed as if he were telling Kang Chul-In not to worry.

“Good!”

Kang Chul-In answered back cheerfully.

Even though it was a baby that had only been born for a year, it wasn’t too bad of an idea to trust in the power of a godbeast that represented a kingdom.

Tat!

The Altaica started to run towards the castle walls quickly,

“Get lost!”

And Kang Chul-In cut down any soldiers that dared to get close.

Tuk!

The Altaica’s sharp claws pushed down on the castle wall.

And,

-Krrr!

With a fearsome roar, it began to scale up the wall, as if it was running.

1 metre, 2 metres… 5 metres… 10 metres… 

25 metres!

“We’re almost there!”

-Krr!

The Altaica grunted in response and jumped,

Tuk!

Landing gracefully on the castle walls.

“W-What…?”

“Is that a tiger…?”

“I-Is that the famed Overlord Kang Chul-In…?”

The soldiers atop the castle wall gasped, flabbergasted at the man-tiger duo that had just climbed the wall.

“A-Are you… Kang Chul-In?”

The general of the Bittermoon territory, Berenas, approached Kang Chul-In and spoke cautiously.

“Yes.”

Atop the Altaica, Kang Chul-In stared down at the troops arrogantly.

“To think that I would live to see the sight of a Lord getting past an entire army by himself… I can’t believe that… B-But… where is your army? Why are you alone?”

“Well.”

Kang Chul-In laughed.

With a cold smile on his face, Kang Chul-In looked like a demon king that had risen from the depths of hell.

“Reinforcements?”

“...?”

“There are none.”

“...!”

“I’m here for Polansky, to rip his head off.”

“W-What…”

At the moment Berenas tried to open his mouth.

Flash!

A white light streaked by,

Plop.

And Berenas’s rolled on the floor, lifeless.

“...!”

“...!”

Shock filled the faces of the Bittermoon soldiers.

“Fight well.”

Saying that, Kang Chul-In and the Altaica raced towards the inner castle.

-----------

“W-What just…”

Even Lee Gong-Myung was shocked when Kang Chul-In came out of nowhere, and jumped inside the Bittermoon territory.

Of course, he wasn’t able to see the death of Berenas, as he was so far away.

“Lee Gong-Myung!”

Baruk Al-Yusuf was also shocked.

“What is happening right now? Why is Kang Chul-In here?”

“Great Khalifa…”

Lee Gong-Myung immediately kneeled down in front of Baruk Al-Yusuf.

“This is something that this one had also not expected.”

“Ehem…”

“Overlord Kang Chul-In is on the other side of Pangaea, in the Pandemonium territory. I had not guessed that he would be here instead.”

“Hu…”

Baruk Al-Yusuf sighed.

Since he also knew that what Lee Gong-Myung said was 100% true, he could not blame him either.

At that moment.

“A message has come!”

A messenger that had been waiting outside rushed in.

“Great Khalifa!”

The man reported.

“The 5000 soldiers that were in the back preparing for the reinforcements seem to be struggling! There are already 700 dead…”

“...!”

“Apparently, they weren’t able to stand up against their enemies since they were quite powerful, and they were using Guerrilla tactics to fight.”

“W-What!”

Baruk Al-Yusuf stood up.

“Guerrilla… Guerrilla warfare… It seems as if the reinforcements weren’t from the territories in the south, but rather Kang Chul-In.”

Shouting this, Baruk Al-Yusuf’s eyes were reddened with rage.

“What Kang Chul-In has done here, appearing by himself, is an incredible risky move. Even though he has managed to get inside the Bittermoon territory, isn’t it impossible for him to escape? It seems as if Kang Chul-In has some unsolved business within there.”

At that moment, Lee Gong-Myung spoke up.

“So?”

“Isn’t this a great opportunity for us?”

And at this, Baruk Al-Yusuf gasped.

“Ahh…”

“Great Khalifa, this is a great chance.”

Lee Gong-Myung repeated.

“It seems as though the morale of the Bittermoon troops being so high has something to do with Kang Chul-In.”

“You seem to be correct.”

“But Kang Chul-In’s army is fighting in the back, which means that reinforcements won’t be coming.”

“And?”

“Yes, this is a mistake and an overestimation of himself by Kang Chul-In. By doing this, he has trapped himself, and given us a great opportunity!”

“Very good!”

Listening up to here, Baruk Al-Yusuf started to laugh.

This is an opportunity!

Looking at Baruk Al-Yusuf in front of him, Lee Gong-Myung realized that this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Even from the beginning, the reason why Alex Rothschild had sent Lee Gong-Myung was in order to stop Kang Chul-In’s growth, and make Baruk Al-Yusuf his meatshield.

But since Kang Chul-In had come here himself, this was an opportunity for Lee Gong-Myung. 

I need to capture Kang Chul-In here!

If he could capture Kang Chul-In, it didn’t matter what it cost, and how much Baruk Al-Yusuf lost.

“Great Khalifa, why don't we go all out, and try to capture Kang Chul-In?”

“Of course! I will use my everything--- My greatest jihad soldiers to capture that damned Kang Chul-In!”

Baruk Al Yusuf clenched his fists.

----------

Just a little further!

Inside the Bittermoon territory, Kang Chul-In urged the Altaica to go all-out, and quickly rushed into the inner castle.

“Stop!”

At that moment.

“Overlord Kang Chul-In! What are you doing!”

Stopping Kang Chul-In were around 50 of the territories guards. These were the elite of the elite, so it was hard for even Kang Chul-In to ignore them. 

But,

“Small fry.”

Kang Chul-In laughed at the guards of the Bittermoon territory.

Why?

He had something for them.

“Summon.”

As soon as Kang Chul-In said that, Spectre Knights started to show themselves one by one.

“D-Don’t tell me…”

Looking at these Spectre Knights, the leader of the guards gasped.

“S-Spectre…”

Of course they were shocked.

Even though these guards were the elite of the territory, they had to gang up 5 against 1 in order to beat these spectre knights.

Since they had to same numbers, it was obviously who would lose the battle.

“Sweep them up.”

Kang Chul-In ordered.

----------

“Kang Chul-In you crazy bastard!!!”

At this disaster, Sheville Polansky cursed.

The Bittermoon territory was already screwed.

They had only been holding on to wait for Kang Chul-In’s reinforcements, and now that their hopes had been dashed, Sheville Polansky tried to run back to earth.

“Damned bastard!”

Sheville Polansky swore once more, and opened a secret passage in the Lord’s hall.

“M-Milord! Where are you going!”

“Shut up!”

Ignoring his secretary, Sheville Polansky tried to run.

Using the secret passage Sheville Polansky went to his secret chamber. It was in order to take Arshelly with him back to earth.

“Huhu… that barrier should almost be gone by now…”

Looking at the fainted Arshelly, Sheville Polansky laughed.

At that moment.

BANG!

With a large noise, the walls began to collapse,

-Krrr!

Revealing a man riding a giant tiger.

“Daughter.”

Ignoring the flustered Sheville Polansky, Kang Chul-In only looked at Arshelly.

“Wake up. Dad is here.”
