Chapter 145 - Turning Points - Part 3



Hyeon-jun was falling into a deep dream while Peliak, the chief executive officer of the clan South American province, had a secret meeting with Vladimir, the commander of the Russian Alpha Team.


"Is it 'Hall of a Past Life'? … ."


Hyun-jun woke up in a place made up of numerous doors. It was the 'Hall of a Past Life' that I'm used to now.


Immediately after clearing up Petrenko and the Alpha Team Hunters, the Blood Knights of Salvation showed interest, so I guessed that they would return to the Hall of Rebirth sooner or later.


"As expected."


In the center of the blood-splattered iron gate in front of him, the nickname 'The Blood Knight of Salvation' was engraved.


"Is it the Blood Knight of Salvation who called me this time? … ."


After a brief murmur, Hyunjun vigorously opened the door. There were pieces of armor scattered around under the lighting that felt a little dark. As he passed the pieces of armor that left traces of rough battles, such as bloodstains, a wide 'Hall' was revealed.


On the wide wall of the hall hung a torn and blood-stained flag. The knight in plate armor, who was looking at the flag that seemed to contain a story, turned around.


"welcome. my reincarnation I am called Gestein, a knight who gave up his honor for the sake of his country and walked the path of cruel blood."


Sadness leaked out of his voice. He was wearing a facemask, so he couldn't see his face, so he couldn't look at his expression.


The armor had red blood all over it, and there were many traces of rough battles.


"nice to meet you. Gestein."


Hyunjun bowed his head slightly and waved goodbye.


"You are polite. Like it. Come this way."


"Yes, I understand."


As Gestein stepped aside, Hyun-jun approached and stood where he had been standing a while ago. It was the front of the flag hanging on the wall.


"Isn't that cool? It is the flag of the kingdom I wanted to protect."


Gestein speaking in a sad voice. The end of this short story could be known just by looking at the fact that he had become a 'past life' and appeared in front of Hyun-jun.


"I risked all the disgrace to protect it. Although I was a knight, I did not avoid any cruel means for the sake of my country."


Deep sorrow was oozing from Gestein's voice as he looked up at the kingdom's flag and spoke.


His face was hidden by the face shield, but it was not difficult to predict what kind of expression he was making.


"… … But I couldn't keep it."


Gestein bowed his head.


"The history of despair must not be repeated. reincarnation I will give you strength."


"What are the conditions?"


This time, I wondered how he would be tortured in another way. I thought I might have already met the 'condition' if I was lucky, but I decided not to have great hopes.


"You have already secured enough tune to receive my protection."


"Is that true?"


It meant that there was no need to be cut by a knife or stabbed by a spear. Hyeonjun's voice was lively.


"You can increase your sympathy with me by acting for the sake of national salvation. I think you are well aware of the act of saving the country that we are talking about here."


Hyunjun nodded at Gestein's question. It was clear that he was referring to the killing of the aggression command by the act of saving the country.


"My blessing has been delivered. No matter what dirty means and methods are used, ethics will not stand in the way as long as the name of salvation is with them."


Gestein drew his sword.


"Even if you don't become a revered hero, walking the bloody path will eventually lead to your salvation!"


As soon as the sharp shout was over, consciousness went dark. The place he came to his senses again was the accommodation in Bogota, which he had become somewhat accustomed to.


"Is it over… … ?"


He muttered to himself and got up. I felt the magic of a new past life.


-Gestein and the will of salvation are together. In the name of salvation, cruel means will be tolerated.


- The current liberation degree according to the synchronization rate is level 1. Even if you use unethical means, people around you will not be hostile to you as long as the name of your country is with you.


A smile spread across his lips. According to the voice's explanation, if a clan or aggression command is involved, there is no need to worry about the people around you turning into a hostile relationship even if you use some cruel means.


Moreover, seeing that the degree of liberation is level 1, it seemed that the level of liberation would rise whenever the synchronization rate increased. If so, it was clear that the efficiency of Gaho would be improved even more.


"not bad."


It is good to get protection that helps in battle, but protection that can provide such auxiliary support is also very helpful.


Hyunjun simply finished taking a shower and had breakfast.


And when I went out to the window to get some fresh air and checked the time, it was already past 11 am.


"I think I had an appointment at noon… … ."


I frowned and opened a notepad on my smartphone. As he remembered, a brief briefing on the current Colombian situation was scheduled at noon by the Bogota subjugation command.


Hyun-jun didn't have to attend because he had the right to subjugate independence and he could read information at any time in the committee's archives, but it seemed like it wouldn't be bad to look at the movements of the remaining Russian Alpha Team Hunters, so he hurriedly moved.


"I will do it."


Instead of Tae-min, who accesses the committee's information network and monitors the dynamics of Vladimir in Brazil, the guild's executive director, Gyu-hwan Lee, followed as an attendant.


The subjugation command, scheduled for a briefing, was not far away. The hunters' eyes focused on Hyun-joon, who rushed to the briefing room and entered the briefing room.


"Is that person Kang Hyeon-jun, a Korean SS-class hunter?"


"They say they buried the Russian Petrenko… … ."


"Shh. Be careful. Nothing is certain yet."


Hunters aren't stupid either. Rumors of an armed clash between Hyun-jun and Petrenko had spread throughout the hunters gathered in Bogota.


The fact that 250 of the Russian Petrenko and Alpha Team Hunters were found dead this time also meant that there were no hunters in Bogota who were not aware of it.


Some people who like to exaggerate spread rumors by imagining that the Alpha Team Hunters led by Petrenko had a re-clash with Hyun-Jun Kang outside and that the Alpha Team was annihilated at the end of the battle.


"Even though Kang Hyeon-jun is a supernova, he is only at the bottom of the SS class, how can he subdue Petrenko, who is at the top of his class?"


"Let's say that Petrenko was defeated by making a hundred concessions. So how do you explain the 250 alpha team hunters? The guild members who accompanied Hyeonjun Kang seem to be all right?"


Most of the responses were unrealistic.


Rumors that Hyun-jun had killed Petrenko and 250 Alpha Team Hunters were just passing by as nonsense.


'Things are going better than I thought.'


Sitting in a corner of the briefing room, Hyun-jun raised the corners of his lips slightly as he overheard the hunters' conversations.


Eden promised to be a shield, but if public opinion worsens, it can only become annoying.


Fortunately, the hunters gathered in Bogota seemed to think that the suspect who annihilated Petrenko and the Alpha Team Hunters was not Hyeonjun but a third party.


'It's better than being annoyed because your eyes are gathering for nothing.'


However, unlike Hyun-jun, who thinks things are going according to plan, some hunters were suspicious of Hyun-jun. I just didn't show it.


'Kang Hyun-jun… … It is clear that he is hiding his power.'


'SS-class lower level? don't be funny It is clear that he has magical powers. It's hard to know exactly, but that's for sure.'


'If you look at the progress of the supernova so far, it is not surprising that Petrenko was killed. The question is, how was he killed? How did you slaughter the top SS-class and 250 elite hunters?'


A briefing room where about 50 hunters gather. Among them, the eyes of a few hunters higher than S-class turned to Hyun-jun.


Kang Hyeon-jun was also conscious of that gaze, but he could not read it to the point of being suspicious.


'Korea's supernova… … I'll have to be careful.'


'You need to be vigilant.'


Some were wary of Hyun-jun. Among them were the remaining members of the Russian Alpha Team.


'Kang Hyun-jun… … What the hell happened... … .'


Ivan swallowed dry saliva as he saw Hyun-jun acting casually. There were many desires to protest, but fear prevailed.


Eventually, as Eden moved to the podium, the hunters carefully took their eyes off Hyeon-jun.


"This is bad news. Thanks to Hyeonjun Kang's performance, we succeeded in defending Bogota, and the surrounding area has been cleaned up to some extent, but the situation in Colombia as a whole has gotten worse."


Eden said in a subdued voice. When I lifted the remote control and pressed the button, the large monitor behind my back turned on and a map of Colombia appeared.


More than half of them were dyed red, and even without an explanation, it was enough to tell that the red area was the land of demons.


"Where have all the Russian alpha teams gone?"


Someone raised a hand and asked a question to Eden. It was no secret that Petrenko and most of the Russian Alpha Team Hunters were killed.


This was not intended to be a pure question, but to hasten an official US announcement.


"South of Bogota, drones found the bodies of Petrenko and Alpha Team Hunters. This is the part where he was killed by the beasts while trying to subjugate arbitrarily or was suspected of being a clan duke.


What Eden was saying now was an American statement.


'The United States has taken this side. What do you think now? Alpha Team.'


Where Hyun-Jun's eyes turned to, there was Ivan, an S-class hunter from the Russian Alpha Team. Unsurprisingly, his expression was as cold as ice.


"Did you decide to stand on Kang's side?"


"I don't know what that means. Mr Ivan. I represent the United States, and I am not on anyone's side."


"Then I will ask you again. Is the US behind Kang Hyeon-jun?"


"Mr Ivan. Without Kang Hyeon-jun, Bogota would have become a beast district. Please refrain from rude words and deeds."


Eden's calm response made Ivan burst into anger, so he got up and left the briefing room.


"It seems that Russia is guessing."


Kyu-hwan said. Hyunjun smiled and nodded his head.


"Absolutely. The Alpha Team isn't stupid either. Rumors among the Hunters do not point me out, but I think the most likely culprit over there is me."


"Will there be any hostility?"


Russia has emerged as a great power as the era of dungeon raids has begun and it has secured a large number of S-class or higher hunter powers.


Gyu-hwan thought it would be dangerous to confront such a country head-on. However, Hyunjun had a relaxed expression on his face.


"There will be hostility, but not openly. There is no evidence."


If he takes an aggressive attitude toward Hyun-jun, who is a member of the committee, without justification, there is a high possibility that it will be accepted as a challenge to the US and UN special agencies.


"There is a slim chance that Russia will declare an all-out war."


An all-out war between the state and the individual. It's not an entirely unlikely number. Even if not until an all-out war, there is a very high probability that an assassin will be sent.


A lot of assassins too.


However.


'They will all be corpses.'


Hyunjun's eyes turned cold.


'If you block my way, I will crush you. Even if it's a country.'
