Chapter 338: A knight my ass (1)

"Where did you say Odin was imprisoned?”

Ju-Heon's eyes were sparkling like a kid in a candy store.

Seol-A wanted to die after seeing his gaze.

‘Captain-niiiiim, please don't make a gaze like that anywhere else!’

She felt as if she was looking at a baby kitten acting cute. Even Chloe had to cough after almost being charmed.

The male team members exchanged gazes with each other to pretend as if they didn't hear that.

‘Hey. Zeus had his you know what ripped off. Do you think Odin would fare any better?’

‘WTF, then will Odin have his eyes ripped out?’

‘No, he’s a god who wanted wisdom, so wouldn't his brain be ripped out?’

‘Fuck, he’d be lucky if he only lost his eyes or brain. Odin was known for being a womanizer too.’

'Ah……then he might have his dick ripped off too.’

‘Wait, that’s not important right now. We're going to be dragged into the tomb right now if we make eye contact with him.’

‘Ah, you’re right. That is true.’

The male team members turned pale. Ju-Heon, who may or may not know what they were talking about, smiled and looked at Jaeha.

“You really saw Odin, right? Was he alone? Did it seem possible to get him out?”
“Ah…that…”

Julian kicked Jaeha in the stomach as he was about to talk. He was telling Jaeha to shut up.

‘Let’s be humane and get at least one good night of rest.’

The other team members quickly tried to change topics.

However…

“Odin was definitely there and I think it is probably farther north of where we had been. There were other artifacts as well and I got Sleipnir out with a scam. Would you like me to tell you how I did all of it?”

Ilya and Julian became extremely angry as Jaeha blurted it out quickly as if he was rapping.

“Hey! We told you not to tell him!”
“Are you crazy?! Do you want to be shoved back into the tomb right away?!”

Jaeha wanted to cry.

“Damn it, that would be better! You guys try surviving the Captain-nim’s gaze!”

Jaeha was in pain and looked as if he wanted to barf.

At that moment…

Vrooooom!

Sleipnir suddenly became riled up and shook side to side.

The nearby buildings started to explode.

Bang bang!

“Captain-nim!”

They turned around to see a bloodied Loki and Kwon Hyuk Soo walking toward them.

“That damn scammer bastard.”
“Does that bastard not know that he should respect the elderly?”

The two artifact users’ eyes were glowing as they came to grab Sleipnir.

To be more specific, they seemed to have come to grab Ju-Heon.

“Are we some wild boars or something?!”
“Get the hell off!”

The two of them seemed extremely angry after having instantly been turned into roadkill. The chaotic powers of their artifacts were gobbling up the nearby buildings.
Julian gasped after seeing the two of them.

“See! They’re angry! What are you going to do?!”

Ju-Heon just snorted.

“I guess once wasn't enough for those shitheads.”

They all screamed as Ju-Heon pushed down on the accelerator once again.

“Captain-nim! Are you thinking about hitting them again?!”
“Yes, hold on tight!”
“Hey!”

The wheels of the car screeched viciously. Ju-Heon seemed to be planning on slamming into them properly this time.
Ju-Heon’s eyes seemed to be on fire.

“I’ll make it so that their bones will crumble into dust.”

Loki's artifact user and Kwon Hyuk Soo scoffed in response.

“Fine, bring it on!”
“I'll grab you and drag you back!”

They activated their body strengthening artifacts with confidence.

However…

Swoosh!

“?!”

Ju-Heon just drove past them.
It truly did happen in an instant.

The two of them, who had been ready for the physical impact, became anxious.

“Hey! Seo Ju-Heon!”

Ju-Heon was humming with joy after easily driving past them.

“Of course that was a lie. Why the hell would I do a battle of strength with them? It’ll just increase the cost of maintenance.”
“Hey! You scared me!”

Julian was angry but the other team members looked as if they had expected this.

“Let’s be honest, even the Captain-nim doesn't want to get sued.”

Jaeha nodded his head.

“But I am feeling refreshed. Those two were the worst when all of you died and I was left alone.”
“Really?”
“Yeah. They tormented me and broke my arms and legs when I refused to restore their artifacts. Especially that Loki bastard.”
“…….”

Ju-Heon suddenly jerked the steering wheel once he heard that. Everybody in the car slammed to the side.

“Kyaaaa!”

And then…

Pow!

Ju-Heon attempted to turn them into roadkill once more. Kwon Hyuk Soo and Loki’s artifact user coughed up blood once again.

“That son of a…!”

It was no easy task to stop the 1 ton plus Sleipnir that was moving swiftly even if they used body strengthening artifacts.

Sleipnir had raised its front wheels and started stomping down on the two bastards.

The team members screamed at the car moving up and down but Ju-Heon's eyes looked angry.

“Stomp on them more. Rip their arms and legs off the same way.”

Kwon Hyuk Soo and Loki’s artifact user felt as if they were going to die.

They had turned into super humans with their evil god artifacts and all sorts of other artifacts but they felt as if they were being squished by a tank.

They tried to use the openings they found to grab onto Sleipnir but it slammed away most artifact abilities.

‘As expected of a Majesty-Grade artifact…!’

It truly was a huge car.

Someone without Hercules's level of strength would not be able to handle the strength of this car. They should be feeling lucky not to have died already.
After stomping on them for a while…

The Lamborghini flew up as if it had finished its task.

Loki, who had been stuck underneath, finally managed to catch a breath and raised his head.

“Fuck!”

He became anxious as Sleipnir flew away but he could not chase the horse like this.

His arms, legs, and even his ribs were all crushed by the horse.

He threw away his destroyed cell phone and looked around.

‘I have no choice. I have to call the other knights…!’

But at that moment…

Craaaaaaaaaaaaaackle!

“?!”

It must have not been done after smashing down on them.

“That is?!”

Ju-Heon's hand was visible outside the driver side window. In his hand was a crackling spear.

It was the Gungnir!

Ju-Heon viciously smiled.

“You won’t have time to call the others.”

‘Damn it!’

Ju-Heon soon threw Gungnir. This major god’s spear shot forward with extreme murderous intent!

Loki’s artifact user became anxious and used his floating artifact to run away.

But it didn’t matter.

‘Damn it!’

Gungnir was a good artifact that would track the target to the end of the world.

It chased after Loki as if it was crazy.

Shhhhhhhhhhh!

Ju-Heon looked toward Kwon Hyuk Soo after sending Gungnir off.

“Hey old man, are you still greedy for my horse?”

He had a disgusted smile on his face.

He stopped here because they were temporary allies but his eyes looked as if he would start a war with a fellow Four Emperors-Grade artifact user if he continued to be greedy.

That was probably the reason.

“Aigooooooo! It looks like I need to get some rest today because my hips hurt!”

He made an extremely wise decision.


While that was going on…

"Did Loki not contact you?”
“I heard that he somehow found his way out of the Great Prison.”
“Isn’t he probably dealing with that right now?”
“That?”
“You know, Sleipnir, the thing that is causing quite the ruckus in the news right now. He’s probably late since he is grabbing it.”
“Ah.”

Inside the Druid’s Clocktower…

There were quite a lot of people in this building with the Round Table artifact even though it was quite late.

It was because of Ju-Heon.

“Seo Ju-Heon will use the Majesty's Key to go in and out of the Great Prison. He will loot the rest of the artifacts too.”
“That key truly is a headache.”

Pandora's soldiers had ended up imprisoned inside the Great Prison because of Ju-Heon.

It was all because of that damn Majesty's Key.

“He’s going around calling that prison his castle because of that key. He calls himself an excavator but that bastard really is a Tomb Raider.”
“That is why we need a key that will allow us to go in and out as we please as well.”
“Then why don’t we make a key too?”

Merlin started to laugh out loud.

“I knew you would say that.”
“Is it possible?”

Merlin laughed again.

“Why are you even asking? We’ve already created the ‘Cradle.’

If we’ve already made one already…

Why wouldn't we be able to make the key?

That was the case.

They were the chief executives for a reason.

They had created one of the Majesty's Treasure of legends.
That artificial < Majesty's Cradle > they had created was Un-known.

The item that allowed them to create these artificial Treasures was the Pandora System Artifact.

It was the artifact that bastard Prometheus had brought with him when they first met him.

At the same time…

“The Majesty’s Throne is very useful.”

It truly was useful.

The artifact that Prometheus had brought with him was the < Majesty’s Throne >.

It was the only real Majesty's Treasure that they had with them.

That artifact was how Prometheus and they were able to use the Majesty’s powers.

Well, it might just be them acting as Regents while the Majesty was not around, but…

‘Anyway, we need Loki to hurry back in order to make the key. We need to combine Prometheus's power we split to turn it into the key……”

It was at that moment.

Boom!

“What the hell?!”

The iron walls of the Druid’s Clocktower shook violently. They all looked out in shock.

They saw that Loki's artifact user was outside the window.

“Hansen!”
"What happened to you?! Why the hell do you look so terrible?!”

The man who barely managed to fly over with his artifact urgently slammed on the window.

“Hurry up and open the door! Hurry! I don't know when that bastard will arrive!”

He kept looking behind him. Ju-Heon’s Gungnir could be seen at a distance still chasing him.
Loki’s artifact user had run like hell to dodge Gungnir all the way here.

Why?

‘This is an impregnable tower of iron walls.’

Pandora’s HQ… This building with the Round Table artifact was an artifact itself.

It was a castle of iron walls that could withstand any artifact attack or disaster.

“What the hell are you doing?! Hurry up and open the door!”

He had no idea how far Gungnir was behind him.

His mind was full of fear as to whether it would appear in 10 seconds or 1 minute or whenever.

“Hurry up and opeeeeeeeeen it!”

They anxiously walked over to the window.

“He does not seem to be fake.”

Loki’s artifact user started to smile as the door opened.

‘Okay, now…’

But the moment he took a step into the castle of iron walls…

Puuk!

“?!”

The iron spear that had instantly flown over stabbed into Loki’s artifact user’s back.

“U…ugh!”

Loki’s artifact user coughed up blood and fell forward.

Boom!

The assassination had happened in an instant.

“Kyaaaa!”

Even he could not survive an attack from a Major God-Grade artifact.

The Knights of the Round Table inside the castle started freaking out.

“T, this is?!”

Gungnir was shaking its butt with joy after stabbing Loki.

[$#&!]

It continued to shake its body to the knights that were looking at it.

It seemed to want them to look at it.

There was actually a note that was tied to its body.

“This is…?!”

They opened the note and gasped.

[You may be next.]

“What the……?!”

Gungnir was excited after completing its mission and flew away.
Someone who had seen the handwriting on that note was shaking in fear.


“What did you call me for?”

Ju-Heon was snorting while looking at someone.

He was visiting an expensive penthouse in the middle of the city.

Ju-Heon was waving something at the man groaning in front of him.

“I brought you a bunch of pain relief patches because you said your hips hurt but I guess it's not enough.”
“Ho, of course not!”

Where was Ju-Heon?

He was currently in Kwon Hyuk Soo's one of many homes. Kwon Hyuk Soo had casts all over his body as he was resting.

He managed to get off with only this much injuries because he was an artifact user.

“You should be thankful that I didn't sue you. How dare you hit me with a car like that.”
“You should be grateful that I didn't grind you to death, you old bastard.”
“…….”

Kwon Hyuk Soo was about to say something before he frowned after hearing noises outside.

His reaction was to be expected.

“Holy shit, a lambo! This looks so cool!”
“You think I can take a picture of it? It should be okay, right?”
“Isn't this extremely expensive?”

Ju-Heon’s Lamborghini…err, Sleipnir, was casually parked outside the Penthouse for everyone to see.

Regular Lamborghinis would have been enough to catch people's attention but this one was a flying car.

“I heard it’s a flying car. This is the first one of its kind, isn’t it?”
“None of the businesses have been able to develop one yet.”

This artifact was extremely famous after being talked about on TV all day. Kwon Hyuk Soo was annoyed because reporters were gathering outside.

He was already angry that he couldn’t take it but now Ju-Heon was basically flaunting it outside his house……!

“You brought that over on purpose, didn't you?”
“Get to the point if you already know that. What is this important info that I must know? I'll let you know that even if we are allies right now, you are still my enemy. It’s time for war if you say some bullshit.”

Kwon Hyuk Soo's eyes sparkled as he started to speak.

“Don’t be shocked and listen carefully.”
"What is it?”
“I am your father.”

Ju-Heon quietly picked Gungnir up.

...Ju-Heon, don't fall for the scam! It's obviously a scam, right?
