Ju-Heon was truly shocked after seeing the man standing in front of him.
It was rare to see this kind of expression on his face.
Other people might just think that he looked like a slightly shocked rabbit, however…
Some of his team members might rush in trying to taxidermy him with that expression because of how cute it looked.
But it made sense that Ju-Heon was shocked.
A tall and bulky man with muscles so firm that a knife would break if someone tried to stab him with it…
It was definitely Dan.
This was his Hunter who always took care of the tomb raiding team’s unbreakable defense and attack. Ju-Heon's great partner who worked with him on the close-range combat side.
Why was he here?
Ju-Heon could not get rid of the shock on his face.
Dan smiled extremely brightly toward Ju-Heon.
He seemed extremely happy to find Ju-Heon.
However, the enemies would not leave them alone to chat.
"What the hell, are you on Seo Ju-Heon's side too?”
“Get lost if you don’t want to die!”
They were all just bullshit in Dan’s ears.
“Captain-nim, there is something I need to tell you.”
“We said get lost! You son of a bi…… ugh!”
“Captain-nim, to be honest with you, I……”
"Do you know about the bounty on Seo Ju-Heon’s head? Move! Ugh!”
“Captain-nim, actually, I……”
“Kill him! Kill this bastard too……ugh!”
“Like I was saying, I……”
Dan turned around in anger.
“My goodness, can I man please get a sentence out?”
One of the enemies was sent flying as soon as he said that. He even lost all of his teeth from a single punch.
Dan’s smiling face turned vicious.
“It’s rude to cut in when someone is speaking. Don’t you think so?”
Every second he could talk to Ju-Heon was important.
Dan’s eyes scrunched together as if he decided this wouldn't work.
“Captain-nim, please sit down and stop your bleeding for a moment.”
He pulled out the knife he had kept sheathed because he was in front of Ju-Heon.
It looked like a butcher’s knife at first glance.
He also didn't seem to have any artifacts on him. He didn't even have a defense-type artifact like the other Hunters.
All he was wearing was an extremely old pair of jeans and a shabby wind-breaker.
No wonder the other Hunters were in disbelief.
They were wondering who had shown up but…
‘What kind of lunatic is this?’
He looked like a civilian and they didn't want to use their artifacts because it seemed like a waste to use up some durability on this guy.
“Who the hell are you?”
Dan nonchalantly pointed his knife forward.
“Hmm? A Hunter.”
‘Does he think any dumbass becomes a Hunter if they call themselves one?’
“Look at this dumbass acting all tough because he has a knife and some muscles.”
“He looks like a noob who just joined Seo Ju-Heon's team. Don’t say we didn't warn you, you son of a bitch!”
The veteran Hunters charged toward Dan with their fancy artifacts.
Dan was just a noob.
On the other hand, they were all specially trained by large excavation teams.
‘There’s no way he's at our lev……’
It was at that moment.
Dan suddenly disappeared.
They all questioned their eyes.
They heard a scream not too far away.
An area had been scorched already once they heard the scream.
That wasn’t all.
Dan who seemed to have disappeared instantly appeared behind them and, the moment someone said, “t, this bastard!” their point of view had changed.
There wasn’t even a moment of hesitation.
Dan used the knife in his hand to slash down at the person's head and shoulder.
His hand was moving as if he was chopping up a piece of meat.
His movements were powerful and sharp.
His knife instantly cut through the person's muscles and pierced in as if to bleed them out.
He was also so quick that it gave them the chills. His movements were extremely skilled as if he was getting rid of the useless parts while chopping up an animal.
"Wait, what the hell?!”
The screams continued to come from all directions.
If they looked back after hearing a scream now someone on the other side would be down.
“Stop him, stoooop hiiiiiiiiiim!”
The only thing that could be heard other than the urgent shouts were the sounds of artifacts breaking and people screaming.
Multiple people charged together after realizing they couldn’t let this continue.
But none of that mattered.
Dan leisurely twisted one of their necks and used that bastard as a shield and threw him to the others before cutting out the rest of their legs.
The direction of his knife instantly changed left and right.
It was terrible.
They couldn't even land a finger on Dan.
Dan was even killing them with his bare hand, as if he thought a single knife was not enough.
There were some enemies who started to use their heads.
‘Alright, retard. Keep on taking them down.’
Their goal was Seo Ju-Heon.
This bastard must not know how much bounty there was on Ju-Heon's head.
The important thing was Ju-Heon's head.
They just needed to take care of Ju-Heon while Dan’s attention was on the others.
‘Seo Ju-Heon can’t use artifacts right now.’
It was obvious based on his actions.
They didn't know what was going on but this was the chance of a lifetime!
Some of the smarter enemies started to move toward Ju-Heon. They weren't going at him with regular attacks.
They were going at him with a knife that was covered in poison that was strong enough to kill an elephant almost instantly. They snuck up using an artifact to turn themselves invisible before aiming for Ju-Heon’s vital points.
However, there was no way Ju-Heon wouldn't have noticed them. Ju-Heon quickly tried to defend, however……
Dan was much faster.
The dagger aiming for Ju-Heon was stabbed into Dan’s thick arm.
He had been committing a massacre on the other side but had instantly appeared in front of Ju-Heon and extended his arm.
“T, this bastard!”
The assassin who had aimed for Ju-Heon became flustered.
He could not pull the knife out of Dan’s arm.
Dan started to laugh viciously.
“How dare you try to attack the Captain-nim.”
The assassin died as soon as Dan said that.
All he saw was a thick finger before his head was cracked.
He was truly at a different level.
The monster who showed up on the battlefield had killed off hundreds of enemies.
Dan didn't even seem to be in pain after being hit by bullets.
He had special Dragon-like bones that were resistant to artifacts but this was truly unbelievable.
The Hunters and their excavation teams started to shiver in fear.
This guy was not human.
‘This crazy monster bastard.’
What kind of monster did Seo Ju-Heon raise?
At the same time… The rest of the tomb raiding team could not close their jaws while watching from the ship.
"W, what kind of ultimate weapon is that?”
“I never thought I'd see that monster again……”
Yoo Jaeha and Ilya were shaking but Seol-A and Irene knew that wasn't the important part right now.
"Why is Dan over here?!”
“Didn't Mr. Ju-Heon say that he wasn’t going to put Mr. Hae Jin in the tomb raiding team?!”
Surprisingly, Chloe looked as if she had expected this to happen. Dan had continued to show his desire to join the team after all.
She kept changing the subject since the Captain-nim had given his orders, however……
“I guess he followed us all the way here.”
“But Dan shouldn't even have his memories……”
On the other hand, Julian scoffed while looking at Dan through the binoculars.
His memory was one thing, however…
“It looks like he got his hands on a Heirloom as well.”
Julian, who was extremely observant, instantly recognized it.
On the other hand, the rest of the team could not believe it.
“Even without his memories?”
“I think he is doing whatever he can to join the team.”
“That’s unbelievable…… The Captain-nim told him to live a peaceful life with Soo-A.”
As he said that…
Dan stopped his slashing once he took care of all of the Hunters.
He then walked over to Ju-Heon thinking that they could peacefully have a conversation now.
“Captain-nim, to be honest with you, I……”
Ju-Heon sighed and looked at Dan.
“First of all, thanks.”
Ju-Heon was happy to see Dan. However, he had a complicated expression on his face.
It was to be expected.
He could see that Dan had gotten a Heirloom. He also had a feeling he knew why Dan was here.
“Yes, Captain-nim. I…!”
“You don't need to pay me back for the shop like this.”
Dan gasped after Ju-Heon patted his shoulder with an expression that seemed to be saying that he understood.
“No, that’s not……!”
‘I got my memories back you damn person!’
It was at that moment.
“Mr. Hae Jin!”
The rest of the team other than Ilya came to support Ju-Heon and Dan.
However, they scolded Dan as soon as they saw him.
His monster-like speed and abilities were all explainable if they factored in the Heirloom and the S-Grade possession-type Saurabi artifact.
They did not think that he had gotten his memories back.
“Mr. Hae Jin, we told you that you can’t get involved with tomb-related things!”
“Ah, that, you see……””
“I mean I like it, but what about Soo-A?!”
"No, let me……”
“Anyway, please don't do dangerous things like this again, okay?! Got it?”
Dan exploded once everybody said something.
“Let me talk! I got my memories back already!”
Everybody looked completely baffled.
‘W, wait what did he just say?
How did he get his memories back when the Captain-nim didn't even use the Raven’s tears?!’
Yoo Jaeha seemed to be feeling guilty about something as he slowly tried to escape but Ju-Heon’s eyes flashed.
“Yoo Jaeha, you son of a bitch.”
Ju-Heon grabbed Yoo Jaeha by the collar as if he expected Jaeha to be responsible for this.
“Did you make a fake without me knowing about it again? Did you use Dan as the guinea pig for it?”
“Aaah! No, I didn't, well, it’s true that I made a copy but…… All of them are destroyed now! Who could have expected Dan to use one of…… ugh!”
Yoo Jaeha saw the look in Ju-Heon's eyes and started to scream for his life.
He really might have died if Ju-Heon could use artifacts right now.
Well, it didn’t matter.
"Captain! I'm going to leave you behind if you don’t hurry!”
Everybody jumped after hearing Ilya’s voice from the ship.
There were enemies all around them.
“Get them! All of those bastards have Heirlooms! Don't let them get off this island!”
Julian quickly shouted.
“Let’s get out of here first!”
“But our artifacts are still with other people!”
It was at that moment.
Ju-Heon’s group’s artifacts fell around the enemies as if a god was helping them out.
The other excavation teams were extremely happy.
Ju-Heon’s doggie artifacts, the artifacts from the 7 Great tombs, Seol-A's ghost artifact, da Vinci's artifact… Solomon's artifact, Nightingale’s artifact, etc.
For some reason, all of their precious artifacts landed in the enemies’ hands.
This must be a last act of defiance from the Heirlooms that were captured by Ju-Heon.
Ju-Heon looked at the doggie artifacts captured by the enemies and started to scoff.
“Hey. You doggos over there. Are you thinking about betraying me?”
The Egyptian Divine-Grade artifacts truly felt wronged.
[Master, that’s not it… ugh!]
The enemies grabbed the doggie artifacts and threatened Ju-Heon.
“Hand over the Heirlooms if you want your artifacts back.”
“Oh. You asked me to do what?”
The enemies started to scoff after seeing Ju-Heon viciously smile.
“We won’t be fooled even if you act tough. We know you can’t use artifacts right now.”
They could tell by looking at Ju-Heon’s movements. He was only holding a regular dagger even when he was surrounded by Hunters.
“Even amazing bastards end up like that every so often. They usually end up as eunuchs for about a week.”
"Anyway, we have no reason to fear someone who can’t use an artifact. You’re just a Tiger without fan……. huh?”
They suddenly gulped.
It was because they could see the chaotic Crow's aura started to seep out of Ju-Heon’s body.
“T, this bastard can still use artifac…”
Ju-Heon's eyes turned red.
Who said that he couldn't use artifacts right now?
“It’s already been 5 minutes, you retards!”
The Crow, no, Ju-Heon's wrath descended on the island.
“Hurry up and hand over my artifacts!”
An extremely scary risk(?) activated, making him think that all of the artifacts were his.
His strength was so strong that it split the island into two and it disappeared without leaving any traces behind.
The small islands nearby all disappeared from the map as well.
Later on, an article that would make everybody in the world faint would go out via newspapers.
[Monarchs Heirlooms monopolized by Seo Ju-Heon. Most Monarch positions vacant.]
[Unprecedented situation. Seo Ju-Heon’s entire excavation team have become Monarchs.]
PFFFT ALL OF THEM ARE MONARCHS!
