Chapter 295: Kang Chul-In Vs. Desdemona (1)

Meanwhile in Fox Valley, 

“So…”

Desdemona opened her mouth to speak, sitting on a throne made of the highest-quality marble. This throne was for all the Ninetails in history, and it had been Kang Chul-In’s wife’s, Ninetails', throne most recently. 

“His nose was pretty good-looking considering he was a human.”

“L-like this?”

The demi-human with the brush asked. This large demi-human was a rare lion-human who had chosen to be an artist instead of a warrior. He was Leonardo de Montana, a palace artist. The genius of the century. Leonardo was considered to be the most talented artist in Fox Valley history, but right now, he was just a slave drawing Desdemona’s composite. 

“Yeah, a bit sharper… no, I didn’t see the nostrils.”

“Then how’s this?”

“Yeah, that’s right.”

Desdemona nodded. 

“That’s exactly it.”

“Mm… okay, understood.”

“Hm, isn’t it almost done? I think only the eyes are left now.”

“As you can see, that is correct.”

“Hehe… good… very good… you’re pretty good at drawing, huh?”

“T-thank you…”

“Almost enough to make me want to use you for a hundred years!”

“Huk!”

Leonardo’s face darkened. It wasn’t just one or two years, but a hundred. It was horrifying just thinking about it. Also, the temper of the girl was so dirty that he didn’t want to be next to her even for a second…

“Then keep on drawing.”

“Where are you going?”

“Mental training.”

“...!”

“It’s time to train the puppies that dared to bite me.”

Desdemona grinned as she walked away. 

“...”

Puppies. Kang Chul-In’s subordinates couldn’t say anything. Desdemona was just too strong. Even though everyone had run at her at once, they couldn’t scratch her in the slightest. Rather, they were all beat up just enough so they wouldn’t die. Even the female Kim-Sung Hee had a black eye and was sniffling, showing that Desdemona’s cruelty was beyond imagination. 

“Hey, kitty.”

Desdemona pointed at Amur, who was kneeling with his hands raised. 

“Y-yes?”

Amur answered, taken slightly aback. He couldn’t say anything about her calling him a cat. 

“Bend over.”

“Pardon? W-why are you suddenly telling me to…”

“Are you asking because you don’t know?”

Heh.

Desdemona had an evil smile. 

That demon-like bitch!

Amur grit his teeth. 

How could a girl who looked to be barely 12 be that evil?

“I-I’ll bend over…”

He had to bend over to survive. 

It was better to have his ass beat than being beat to death. 

“Grit your teeth.”

Desdemona warned Amur holding the red club. 

“Okay, ready?”

Pak!

“Keack!”

Amur screamed, tasting the pain of the strike. The club was an Epic item called [Pain Maker] and was created with a very expensive material called ‘fire crystal.’ This strike was different from normal ones. 

Ugh! Even my bones hurt!

Amur barely held himself back from begging to be killed. 

1 minute late, 

Plop!

Amur fell over with bubbles in his mouth after receiving ten strikes. The mighty commander had fainted. 

“Hm… his endurance is worse than I thought.”

But that wasn't the end. 

“Okay, next!”

It seemed like Desdemona was going to be hitting everyone. 

“Kuk…!”

“Owie, this oldie is dying~!”

“Kyak!”

The martial artists that were called the greatest in Pangaea suffered the humiliation of falling over one by one. 

That was how powerful Desdemona was. 

“I”ll be there soon so wait for a little bit.”

“Alright…”

When it was James’s turn, Desdemona left for a moment. It was to observe Leonardo drawing the composite of the criminal. 

“Kng!”

“Ugh… uh…”

“Owie… I’m dying…”

Moans could be heard from here and there. 

However, they didn’t despair. 

If his Majesty comes...!

That foolish girl… His Majesty will take revenge for us…

Let’s see who’s smiling at the end…

You’re dead now, child!

It was because they believed that Kang Chul-In would save them. Of course, they didn’t know that Kang Chul-In was angrily grinding his teeth at them. 

N-no…!

Of them, there was someone who knew the truth. It was the draconian, General Drakan. 

That girl… is dangerous…! Maybe… she’s a true dragon!

The others didn’t know, but Drakan could feel it. 

It was his natural instinct that told him. 

As a draconian with dragon blood, he was able to grasp what Desdemona’s identity was. 

If I’m right… ahh! Even if his Majesty comes...!

If Desdemona was a true dragon, or in other words, an ancient dragon, there was no guarantee that Kang Chul-In was going to win. 

“What do we have here?”

It was then.

“Hey, lizard.”

Desdemona had suddenly appeared next to him and whispered evilly in his ear. 

“Y-yes?”

“You know who I am, right?”

“I-I don’t…”

“I don’t think so. I think you do, hm?”

“I really don’t!”

“Hmm...do you really think so?”

Then, she licked his cheek. 

“...!”

His body shivered at the sudden feeling. 

“Mm!”

Desdemona spoke up again after tasting Drakan. 

“This…”

“...”

“Is the taste of a liar! Lies!”

“H-heek!”

“You dare to lie in front of me? A mere lizard?”

It seemed like a true dragon was able to tell between lies and the truth by licking one’s skin. 

“So… you know my identity…?”

Desdemona grinned evilly. 

“Then what do you think…”

It was then. 

Kwang!

A large explosion rang out, 

Rrrrrrrr!

And Fox Valley’s Lord Hall began to come crumbling down. 

Someone came down as well. 

Thump!

“...!”

A ray of hope shined on the faces of the martial artists of Valhalla and the officials of Fox Valley. How much had they waited for this moment?

The amount of humiliation they suffered from just a small girl was intense. 

But not anymore. 

The Supreme King of the West, Kang Chul-In, the most evil and strongest in Pangaea had come, so they no longer had anything to be scared about. Why? Because Kang Chul-In would avenge them!

“You bitch.”

Kang Chul-In looked at Desdemona fiercely. 

“So you're the girl who dared to bother my precious time?"

That wasn't all. 

"And you dared to mess up my wife's home… and beat my subordinates up like this?"

"Hm?"

Desdemona tilted her head.

"Huk!"

Leonardo, who had been painting the composite, was also shocked.

"C-could it be… the person who this evil girl was looking for is…!"

Leonardo looked down at his drawing.

"Hey."

Desdemona had a cold smile.

"You came on your own feet."

"...?"

"Good job on coming here."

She cracked her knuckles violently.

"..."

Kang Chul-In was flabbergasted. He had no idea what the girl was talking about.

***

The first thing that Lee Ji-Tae did after becoming Lord of the Shatmeyeba territory was to capture public opinion. In the capital city of the territory, Apu City, Lee Ji-Tae gave a speech in front of hundreds of people.

"Forget about the starving from now on! I am different from the incapable Atil Ramanujan! I won't have a starving citizen in my territory! I, Overlord Lee Ji-Tae, promise!"

Lee Ji-Tae knew how to control their minds well. They were like children, so it wasn't that hard to move them. Lee Ji-Tae knew what was most needed in Shatmabeya. Food. Promising no one else would be starved during the confusing time of Lords changing would change public opinion the quickest.

"Within three months, I will make sure all citizens have two meals a day! Also, until the famine is over, I'll decrease the taxes by 10%!"

It was a shocking statement.

From the food supply to taxes. It was an incredible promise that they couldn't believe.

"..."

However, no one said anything against it. Not even Rigveda, Atal Ramanujan's secretary.

Why? Why were they just standing there listening to the unbelievable promise? Was it because they were traitors? Or maybe because they agreed with what Lee Ji-Tae said? In reality, it was neither of those.

The answer was mind control.

"...”

There wasn't any sign of life in their eyes.

-Obey!

Lee Gong-Myung's long time grudge had dug into their brains, making it impossible for them to think. This was the power of an Agnaga.

"Woooohoooo~!"

"Hurrah for his Majesty, Lee Ji-Tae!"

"Hurrah for Shatmeyeba territory!"

The citizens who didn't know anything about this were convinced and cheered uproariously.

Heh.

Lee Ji-Tae smiled.

"Stupid and foolish humans. Sure… be happy as much as you want."

It was an ominous sentence.

***

Kang Chul-In tilted his head as Desdemona approached him.

She didn't exist in the past… is this a type of butterfly effect?

He didn't know where such a person had come from, but it was clear she wasn't a normal girl. And in actuality, it was the butterfly effect. If only Laputa hadn't touched Desdemona's lair, Desdemona would be deep in her sleep.

She's strong.

The power he could feel from her wasn't normal.

She could defeat Dorian in one blow.

It was enough to block Brynhildr easily.

This meant that the girl in front of him was as powerful as he was.

"Let's see how skilled you are, bitch."

Kang Chul-In didn't feel scared. The strongest wasn't feeble-minded. Rather, he was glad he met a strong person.

It wasn't easy to meet someone he could use 100% of his power on!

"A hit and run criminal dares?"

Desdemona unleashed her lightning at Kang Chul-In, and he also brought his fists down at her.

Kwaanngggggg!

Kang Chul-In was pushed about 20 meters back and crashed into the walls of the Lord's Hall.

What the hell!

Kang Chul-In was shocked.

"What? You wanted to see how strong I am?"

Desdemona mocked him.

It was the relaxed attitude only a true dragon could have.
