The aftershock of the ceiling breaking down was massive.
Kang Chul-In quickly left the area.
Even though Kang Chul-In was able to dodge the falling rocks, there was no guarantee in anything.
“Did it work?”
Looking at what he did, Kang Chul-In murmured.
Under the falling ceiling, Kaiforce had been crushed underneath.
I doubt he’s dead.
Kaiforce had a cautious personality which made Kang Chul-In know that he wouldn’t die from something like this. He just hoped that he had managed to do some damage and interrupt whatever transformation he had been going through.
With a large sound, a boulder the size of a small house broke apart.
He had thought that Kaiforce had taken some damage, but it seemed like that wasn’t the case.
With another loud sound, the remaining rocks were pushed away, and a black shadow started to emerge, making it look as if a demon had emerged from hell.
Truth be told, Kaiforce was a demon.
After transforming, Kaiforce could no longer be called ‘human’.
Horns on each side of the head.
Spikes protruding out from his elbows, shoulders, and knees.
Bat-like wings on his back,
And a tail that had spikes on it too.
It was impossible to find any resemblance of the soldier Pluto anymore.
“It’s been a while… this body… even though it’s only half…”
And turned his head towards Kang Chul-In.
“Still, it’ll be enough to rip you to shreds.”
Dammit, he’s fine!
It was an extremely annoying situation for Kang Chul-In.
He had even used the Lightning Vortex to break the ceiling and stop Kaiforce’s transformation, but it had failed.
Instead of responding, Kang Chul-In reactivated Overdrive, and prepared for his fight with Kaiforce.
Now that Kaiforce had succeeded in powering up, Kang Chul-In was left with no choice but to go all out.
And also activated Overdrive, like Kang Chul-In.
“Even though I don’t know how you got here, or how you got that damned Mitra in your hands… Kuku… You dared to ignore me, and go with that bitch instead? Hu… You’ll pay for it.”
“So, Mitra’s a bitch?”
“It’s funny for you to be so jealous.”
At Kang Chul-In’s words, Kaiforce’s face started to stiffen.
“Well, it sure seems like it.”
Kang Chul-In smirked.
“Well… even though Mitra isn’t perfect, I’d say it’s about… 100 times better than you.”
“W-What? That bitch is superior to me?”
“Why!? What did I do that makes me worse than Mitra!? No, even before that… you’re not a good person…”
Kaiforce seemed to think of Kang Chul-In as a bad person, and a tyrant.
“I don’t understand how that picky bitch is being used in your hands…”
“Anyway, Mitra is better than you. Not only do you think of your owner as trash, but you also try to take your owner’s body. But Mitra is different. Even though it is a bit picky, it definitely has the power that you lack. Unlike you, this is a good sword.”
Even though Kaiforce himself was denying it, he was definitely jealous.
Kang Chul-In had continuously called Kaiforce a ‘failure’ or a ‘piece of scrap metal’.
But it was different for Mitra.
Kang Chul-In considered Mitra a ‘good sword’, making Kaiforce astonished and annoyed.
How could a bad, evil person like Kang Chul-In say that Mitra, who was of the Light element, was better than himself, who was of the dark element?
“You… I will rip you to shreds…!”
Pissed off, Kaiforce started to fly towards Kang Chul-In at its top speed.
At this, Kang Chul-In smiled inwardly.
During battle, one shouldn’t think of other things.
Because that would lead to mistakes which could then lead to defeat.
In that sense, Kang Chul-In’s provocation could be said to be successful.
Mitra was swung towards Kaiforce’s blind spot, which was his left rib. Now that Kaiforce was mid-air, it seemed to be impossible to dodge.
But at that moment,
Kaiforce started to spin midair,
And blocked Kang Chul-In’s attack, using its wings.
“Where are you looking?”
Kaiforce’s hand grasped at Kang Chul-In’s throat.
As soon as Kaiforce’s words finished, Kang Chul-In’s body plummeted towards the ground.
Landing on the floor, Kang Chul-In spat out blood.
And immediately after, Kaiforce’s sword that had turned into the shape of a large needle was aimed towards Kang Chul-In’s heart.
Sensing the incoming danger, Kang Chul-In quickly rolled his body to dodge Kaiforce’s attack.
“Hu… rat-like bastard.”
Laughing, Kaiforce quickly caught up to Kang Chul-In.
It was truly terrifyingly fast.
Kaiforce was not only using its feet to run, but it was also using its wings to speed itself up, proving that they weren't just for decoration.
The tail of Kaiforce hit the ground.
Kang Chul-In once again threw his body back.
He had no time to fight back.
Whenever he tried to regain his composure and stance, Kaiforce’s sword or tail continued to harass and bother him.
Kang Chul-In increased the level of Overdrive, activating the 2nd level.
As if responding to that, black-purple sparks also started to erupt near Kaiforce’s body.
T-The 2nd level?
Kang Chul-In’s expression was full of shock.
Even though the 1st stage made sense, the 2nd stage?
It was impossible not to be shocked that Kaiforce had managed to activate the 2nd stage without any prior training.
Being pushed back to a corner, it wouldn’t be strange for Kang Chul-In to receive a fatal blow from Kaiforce.
At that moment, Mitra called Kang Chul-In.
-I will help you!
As expected of a holy sword.
Unlike Kaiforce, who said that it would give him strength when he gave it control over his body, Mitra didn’t ask for anything in response.
From behind Kang Chul-In’s back, a white light started to appear.
Wings made of light appeared.
[You have obtained the ability to fly! (Temporary)]
[You have learnt the ‘Wing Guard’ ability! (Temporary)]
[Your attack and movement speed will increase by 20%!]
Kang Chul-In was satisfied with the buffs given to him by Mitra.
“So, you don’t like my strength, but will take Mitra’s instead?”
Looking at this, Kaiforce spoke with an angry voice and swung his sword.
Willing his wings to cover his body, Kang Chul-In blocked the strike. He had used the ability given to him by Mitra, ‘Wing Guard’.
An explosion occurred.
Kang Chul-In was safe.
The wings made of light had successfully blocked his body from Kaiforce’s attack.
Kaiforce continued to attack.
Kang Chul-In moaned.
But still, it was withstandable.
With all the buffs given to him, he wouldn’t lose this fight one-sidedly.
“Your sense of distance is terrible.”
At that moment, Kang Chul-In recalled the conversation he had with Swordmaster Tuzenbach.
“You only know how to fight and overwhelm with your strength and speed, but you don’t understand the concept of ‘distance’.”
At this moment, Kang Chul-In realised the key to winning this battle.
In other words, ‘the eye of the heart’.
Even though it’ll be tiring…
Gritting his teeth in preparation for the pain, Kang Chul-In activated the Oraclomind he had learnt.
Kang Chul-In was shocked at the amount of data that had suddenly come inside his brain.
He could now see Kaiforce’s reach and the ‘distance’.
“I’ll finish you off, arrogant human.”
Not knowing what Kang Chul-In had done, Kaiforce didn’t stop his onslaught of attacks.
Let’s wait a bit.
Kang Chul-In decided.
Since he didn’t know what Kaiforce could take out once he saw Kang Chul-In’s changed movements, he decided to pretend nothing had changed and would strike a fatal blow when Kaiforce gave him an opportunity.
While Kaiforce attacked, Kang Chul-In pretended to barely dodge until an opportunity finally came.
“Now do you understand your own weakness?”
Laughing, Kaiforce continued to push Kang Chul-In back.
Kang Chul-In found an opportunity to land a perfect counterblow.
The very tip of Mitra changed and started to bend, turning into the shape of a sickle and aimed for Kaiforce’s abdomen.
Shock filled Kaiforce’s face.
After landing a successful blow on Kaiforce, Kang Chul-In decided not to let this chance go to waste and began an onslaught of attacks.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
