Chapter 983

Episode 983 This is what makes the world interesting. (3)

The members of the Namgung family who collected the body of Emperor Namgung cried and collapsed from exhaustion. Even so, since they were pushed to their limit, it would have been difficult for them to endure any longer.

And the party took care of them with all its might.

“How are you feeling?”

Tang Gunak looked back at Hyeonjong with calm eyes.

“There are many people with serious injuries, but fortunately, I don’t think any more people will lose their lives.”

“⋯⋯Thank goodness.”

A sigh escaped from Hyeonjong’s mouth.

In fact, he said he was fortunate, but he also had doubts about whether this could truly be considered fortunate.

‘Namgoong paid too much of a price.’

The family head and elders were lost all at once. Moreover, only one-third of those who entered Maehwa Island survived. Considering that it took almost all of the power of the Namgung family to reach Maehwa Island, this is a damage that is difficult to repair.

Hyeonjong looked at the unconscious Namgung Dowi. She looked very tired and broken, but with her eyes closed, I could clearly see that she was young.

‘The luggage is too heavy.’

You can’t even think about it now. But after the sadness subsides and you regain your composure, reality will begin to set in.

Above all, the biggest problem was the loss of almost all of the ancestors who were supposed to be the mainstay of the family. It is said that Namgung-myeong still remains, but he will not be able to take on the role of the head of the family.

And that’s not the whole problem.

Even if Nangong Daowi is a genius from heaven and can lead the Nangong family again, he is still too young. At best, it will take more than ten years for him to replace Emperor Nangong.

‘There is no way Gangho’s hunting dogs will leave the Namgung family alone until then.’

Haven’t volcanoes already experienced this?

For a faction that lacks power, the brilliant reputation of the past is rather detrimental. As the popularity increases, the number of people targeting it will increase.

Massive damage and disconnection from the ancestors.

It’s like…

Hyeonjong, who was lost in thought, shook his head.

‘That won’t happen.’

Because we can’t just watch them suffer like that.

“Please, please.”

“Do not worry.”

Tang Gunak smiled a small smile.

The attitude of asking a favor was like a person entrusting his student to a doctor. There was a lot of concern and kindness in her eyes. For King Hyeonjong, his relationship with Namgung Sega is only a small thing, so how can he be so sincere?

‘The more I look at him, the more amazing he becomes.’

No, it wasn’t just Hyeonjong who was great.

Tang Junyu glanced at Huashan’s disciples who were looking at the Yangtze River from the railing.

‘What’s more amazing is this one.’

Of course I knew that the volcano had become stronger.

It would be even more strange if the people trained by the Hwasan Sword Association for three years did not become stronger. However, the sight they showed with their swords surprised even Tanggunak, who had already guessed it.

‘What kind of training do you need to do to grow so dramatically?’

It is natural for one’s inner strength to become stronger and one’s herbivorous skills to become more sophisticated. Don’t all warriors generously devote their time to that?

However, their strength cannot be explained simply by that alone.

‘Anyway, he’s an amazing person.’

Tang Gunak smiled a little bitterly and returned his gaze to the patient he was caring for. To him, it was just a surprising and strange thing. And on the other hand, it was also a rewarding thing.

However, this was possible because Tanggunak knew and understood the Hwasan sect to a certain extent. It was not easy for Zhao Gai, who had unintentionally accompanied Hwasan and Maehwa Island, to understand the current situation.

‘Was the volcano this strong?’

In his eyes, there was no significant difference between when he entered Maehwa Island and now. Hwasan and Dangga literally rescued the Namgung family from Maehwa Island without any damage.

“⋯⋯There will be trouble.”

The leader of the Cheonwoo Alliance is clearly Hwasan. However, that did not mean that Hwasan was the strongest sect in the Tianwu Meng. Everyone thought so. At least until now.

The reason why Hwasan could be the leader is because they were the central point of the Cheonwoo Maeng and a sect that proved the values ​​that the Cheonwoo Maeng pursued. In other words, this means that the actual military power of Cheonwoomaeng has been handled by the Sicheondang family.

But…

‘Not anymore.’

If what happened on the Yangtze River becomes known to the world, no one will be able to think that way.

Now, the sect called Hwasan has risen to the throne of Cheon Woo-maeng, both in name and reality. It has become a true Daemun faction that can be compared to the leaders of the old faction.

‘I wonder how they will accept this situation…’

Zhao Kai’s gaze turned to the riverside.

There were still Shaolin, Gong, and a few open beggars camped there.

❀ ❀ ❀

The court watched in fascination the two ships approaching. The area around his eyes twitched slightly.

‘How did this happen?’

Those who had walked onto the island on their own were leisurely leaving the island. What was even more incomprehensible was the fact that the boats in the ditch, which were supposed to block their path, were actually opening a way for them to get out.

‘What the hell is this…’

The court’s lips trembled.

However, he didn’t intend to stay here forever.

Once Hwasan and Dangga set foot on Maehwa Island, there were two possible outcomes.

Either be killed along with Namgung at Maehwa Island.

After going through many hardships, they succeed in escaping Maehwado Island, but they are attacked by Surochae and Maninbang in the cold Yangtze River and die one by one.

In the former case, he couldn’t do anything about it, but if the latter case happened, even if it was just one chance in a thousand times, he would naturally jump into the Yangtze River and help them. Because I can’t hear that they just watched them dying here and then escaped.

But the situation was completely different from what he expected.

“How…”

His eyes were now extremely complex, as if the brilliance had long been a thing of the past.

‘How on earth can I do this…’

The judgment he made while standing here was absolutely wrong. No matter how many times I replayed it, there were no mistakes whatsoever. Entering that Maehwa Island was tantamount to suicide.

But now it all means nothing.

Now that Hwaseong and Dangga, that is, Cheonwoo-maeng, have jumped into Maehwa Island on their own and rescued Namgung, his cool-headed judgment will turn into the misjudgment of a fool, and the patience he endured until the end will turn into a coward’s turn.

There was no way to avoid the situation where the entire world was being pointed at by the world. No, the old file room is not the problem now.

“⋯⋯.”

The court glances behind. The Shaolin monks lined up behind them were looking at the two approaching ships with expressionless faces. Without even looking at him.

He clenched his fists without realizing it.

These were the people who maintained their positions even when Hyebang left. This means that they are people who did not abandon their faith in him even at that moment. But at this moment, even they were ignoring the court.

‘You fools!’

It was a time when the court kept chanting its disfavors to calm its boiling stomach.

“⋯⋯Bangjang.”

Zhongli-hyung, who had been watching the situation from the side, looked back at the court with trembling eyes. He is also a scholar from a certain sect. He couldn’t have been so stupid that he didn’t know how the situation was going.

“What are we going to do now?”

“⋯⋯.”

The court fell silent like a clam. The saying that even if there are ten mouths there is nothing to say is probably a phrase prepared for this situation.

“If this was going to be the case, wouldn’t it have been better for us to be together when that volcano heads toward Maehwa Island? “If things go on like this, what will the world think of us now?”

When the court remained silent despite the pouring rebuke, Jong-li-hyung raised his voice as if he was frustrated.

“Director!”

“Calm down!”

The court looked back at him with an angry look on its face. Jong-ri-hyeong was momentarily startled by those sharp eyes.

The court bit its lip slightly and said.

“⋯⋯They will arrive soon. Should we raise our voices among ourselves?”

“One…”

“Just wait.”

Now the boat was about to reach the riverside.

“It’s not over yet.”

A bright blue light flowed from the eyes of the court.

Meanwhile, the boat carrying Cheonwoo-maeng finally arrived at the riverside.

thud!

The sound of the front of the boat hitting the sandbank was almost like thunder.

gulp.

In the silence so quiet that even the sound of dry swallowing could be heard, everyone’s eyes turned to the ship.

“Move the wounded carefully!”

“yes!”

Sacheondang warriors dressed in green uniforms jumped from the ship, holding the survivors of the Namgung family.

Jong-ri-hyeong closed his eyes.

‘You really saved me.’

You couldn’t tell when looking at it from afar. Is the Namgung family really on that ship? But at this moment, it has become an undeniable fact that Chen Wu-meng rescued her Nangong.

‘What should I do now?’

This is something to be happy about. It was something that should be greatly rejoiced and praised.

But Jong-li-hyung couldn’t bear to do that. Even though the people who had suffered came back alive from the dead, I felt a sense of disgust at myself for not being able to truly rejoice in that fact.

Perhaps his fellow disciples who are now lined up behind him feel the same way?

Meanwhile, Namgung’s survivors were taken away from the ship one after another. The Tang people found a flat place and laid down the unconscious members of the Namgung family and checked their condition once again.

After that, the swordsmen of the volcano finally appeared.

Wearing black military uniforms, they jumped out of the boat and lined up on the spot. No one opened their mouth or looked away.

Perhaps that was an act of disregard for the people here. No matter how heroic they were when they returned, it was clearly out of etiquette for them not to even look at So-rim and Gong-gong.

But those who stood here were rather thankful. Because I couldn’t bring myself to make eye contact with them.

It was at that moment that King Hyeonjong, the long face of the volcano, appeared behind them.

Jerk.

The court, which had been quietly watching what they were doing, took the first step.

He walked meaningfully towards the volcano and bowed deeply towards King Hyeonjong, who stepped forward, and waved his arms around him.

“Thank you for your hard work, Jang Moon-in.”

Hyeonjong quietly smiled.

Although these two people had experienced a conflict that could be said to be extreme before coming to the Yangtze River, their faces did not show any trace of ill will from the past incident.

“You’re welcome. “I just did what I had to do.”

The court was speechless for a moment and bit its lower lip.

What Hyeonjong said were common words of humility.

However, the part about ‘what should be done of course’ really struck the court. Doesn’t that mean that Shaolin didn’t do what he should have done?

Of course, Hyeonjong probably had no malicious intent. The King Hyeonjong that the court knows is not someone who intentionally scoffs and mocks people in front of them. However, the lack of malice actually made the court even more shabby.

The eyes of the court shed a sharp light.

“but.”

He slowly straightened his back and looked around the volcano and Tangga with meaningful eyes. And he cast his gaze toward the fleets of canal ships still occupying the Yangtze River.

“I think you need to explain something.”

Hyeonjong’s eyes narrowed for a moment.

“Did you say explanation?”

“Yes, Jang Mun-in. It may be a small thing, but it is also important.”

“⋯⋯What is it?”

The court glared at Hyeonjong with cold eyes.

“If my eyes were not mistaken, it seemed that Surochae and Maninbang themselves had opened a way for Cheonwoomaeng to escape. “Isn’t that right?”

Hyeonjong kept his mouth shut.

It’s not because of the content of the question. This is because he sensed that the court’s words were critical.

“I don’t understand how such a thing is possible based on Hinayana common sense.”

“Director, now…”

“So, I need you to explain, Jang Moon-in.”

The court spoke emphatically, twisting its eyes.

“Regarding my question as to whether Cheon Woo-maeng colluded with the Sa Sect on Maehwa Island.”

For a moment, the air near the river froze.
