Chapter 159: Breakthrough

“Rot in hell, idiot.”

Kang Chul-In cursed one last time before leaving the hall.

What he had to do now was carry Arshelly out of this place before he was completely surrounded by the Anatolian troops.

-Meow~.

The Altaica handed Arshelly who was sleeping on its back over to Kang Chul-In carefully using its fangs. Since it was a godbeast, it was capable of doing things like this.

I can only carry her on my back.

It would be too difficult to carry an 11-year old in his arms while trying to escape, so Kang Chul-In decided to carry her on his back instead.

Tzzt!

Kang Chul-In ripped off part of his armor to instead put it on Arshelly to protect her.

He used the cape that Alfred gave him as a sack, and put Arshelly in it. 

“Is this okay now?”

Kang Chul-In asked the Altaica.

Nod nod.

The Altaica nodded, gesturing that it was fine.

“Pft.”

Kang Chul-In laughed at the Altaica’s intelligence.

It will be difficult to move around.

Truth be told, it wasn’t really a situation to be laughing in.

Since he was carrying his daughter on his back, he wouldn’t be able to make any dynamic movements, which would lead to a decrease in his fighting strength.

Additionally, if the enemies focused on Arshelly instead of Kang Chul-In?

That would definitely give him some trouble.

And not only that, but wasn’t he in the middle of enemy territory?

“Let’s go.”

Kang Chul-In had no hesitation in his footsteps.

We have to get out of here, no matter what.

Even though they were in danger, nothing would change if they just stayed in here worrying. There were only two possibilities for what could happen: they would either survive, or die.

“Go!”

Kang Chul-In shouted, urging the Altaica.

It was the beginning of their escape.

------

Elsewhere inside the Bittermoon territory---

“P-Please save… Ugh…”

“Kuku… save you?”

The soldiers of Anatolia laughed.

“Do you think we let dogs like you live?”

Looking at the dying Bittermoon soldiers, the Anatolian soldiers seemed to enjoy it.

In fact, it was obvious that they were enjoying the process.

“Now, if I could just catch the Lord of this terri…”

As the soldier was speaking,

-Krrr!

Out of nowhere, a white tiger the size of a small house appeared.

“...!”

“...!”

At this, the soldiers froze up. It was because they knew who the man riding this tiger was through the grapevine of commands.

“Disgusting bastards.”

Kang Chul-In stared at these soldiers in disgust.

“So that man is…”

But… the soldiers of Anatolia were somewhat strange.

Even though they seemed surprised, they didn’t seem to be frightened at all.

“The Khalifa will reward us when we capture you.”

In fact, the soldiers instead welcomed Kang Chul-In. Their desire and greed for money had overtaken their fear.

“...These bastards.”

Kang Chul-In was speechless and annoyed at the fact that these small-fry were thinking so lowly of him.

“Just…”

Kang Chul-In took out the iron sword.

“...Die.”

With that,

-Grrr!

The Altaica growled, and started to dash explosively.

Puak!

Blood spurted everywhere, like a water fountain.

In a blink of an eye, 10 heads were separated from their bodies.

“Go.”

-Krrr!

Once again, Kang Chul-In urged the Altaica, without taking a look at the dead soldiers.

Bang!

Bang!

Due to the weight of the Altaica, the floor seemed to scream in pain.

And due to the Altaica’s incomparable speed and weight, when combined with Kang Chul-In’s strength, they started to seem like a moving tank.

“Agh!!”

“Kuhuk…”

What followed was a trail of blood.

No one that stood in the way of Kang Chul-In was left alive.

“There, head there!”

Getting out of the inner castle, Kang Chul-In pointed towards the castle wall.

-Krr!

The Altaica moved to follow Kang Chul-In’s words, leaping with its giant body.

Tat!

The jumping Altaica, and Kang Chul-In riding on it.

It seemed as if the duo of the strongest Overlord and the godbeast were going to get out of the Bittermoon territory just like that.

Shii!

Until a terrifying noise passed by, and black shadows started to stand in Kang Chul-In's and the Altaica’s way.

Shiii!

Sharp blades came from behind, the left, the right--- basically all directions, at once. 

Ambush!

At that moment, Kang Chul-In’s eyes began to gleam like a predator.

They were in mid-air, in order to get on the castle wall, so it was difficult to move their bodies. If they landed like this, it was obvious that they would be done for.

Hwaaa!

Terrifying mana started to explode out of Kang Chul-In’s body.

BANG!

This explosion of mana was able to push back the black shadows, enabling Kang Chul-In and the Altaica to land on the walls safely.

Even though he had spent a lot of mana, there was no other choice.

“So you’re trying to take me down?”

There was no other explanation.

The 50 black shadows seemed threatening, and their martial prowess was certainly not bad.

Kang Chul-in glanced at their eyes, which could be seen peeking out from the slits of their mask. 

Drugs.

It seems that their abilities had been drastically improved with the use of drugs.

These 50 soldiers that were armed with gleaming scimitars were surely Baruk Al-Yusuf’s elite guards.

There were also 100 soldiers that were glowing red. They were the suicide bombers he had seen earlier.

“The elites of Baruk Al-Yusuf, that crazy bastard, huh.”

Kang Chul-In nodded.

“Kang Chul-In, oh, Kang Chul-In…”

At that moment,

“Huhu… I will chop your head off with my own two hands.”

A man stepped forward and spoke. It was Baruk Al-Yusuf’s trusted subordinate, Abubakar Shekau.

--------

While Kang Chul-In was meeting the elite soldiers of Anatolia, Lee Gong-Myung was setting up a trap just in case Kang Chul-In survived.

“Get a lot of large stones. The bigger the better.”

He ordered.

“S-Stones?”

“This is my order. Hurry up.”

Even though the commander of Baruk Al-Yusuf’s army was confused, he did what he was told.

“Huu…”

Lee Gong-Myung sighed deeply.

There’s no way Kang Chul-In will be caught with just those elite soldiers.

He will definitely come this way. I have a feeling. This is an opportunity. I will never… never let this go.

Lee Gong-Myung vowed.

He had to.

This was the biggest opportunity he had to get rid of his lord, Alex Rothschild’s, archenemy. 

Kang Chul-In… even you won’t be able to get out of here alive.

Thinking this, Lee Gong-Myung’s left hand rested on his waist. Where he touched was a fan of supreme quality. 

Its name: 

The White Rain Fan.
