[Green Skins originally referred to the species which had green skin, such as the Orcs, Goblins, and the Ogres. Receiving the call from the G.o.d of Battlefield, they would move around the continent a bit more often. However, the appearance of Blood Dagger had widened the range and extent of the Green Skins even more across the Continent. These words are according to the great and honorable war heroine, Kim Yoora, who was first accepted by Blood Dagger. If you obeyed his words, Green Skin… omission.] – Excerpt from the fables of the Great Chiefs.
Of course they did not understand what I was saying. They still haven’t fully learned the language of the Green Skins, but still many of the children were crying. Especially, Yoora who stared across at me while she was wiping away her tears. Unlike the first time that I had seen her, she was showing a completely different side, one befitting of a child. I thought that this young girl had roughly understood what I had stated despite the short time that she had studied the Green Skin tongue.
The other Green Skins were also a bit surprised at the declaration, but they did not rebuke. Rather, they began to scream, not expecting that I would welcome them like this. As a result, I felt good and shouted myself.
“We will admit these Humans into our clan!”
“These young Humans are now part of the Blood Dagger Clan!”
“For Blood Dagger!”
“For Blood Dagger!”
Fortunately, there was no one that held any forms of complaint for admitting these Humans into our clan. Not sure what was being said, the new young children also began to scream.
“For Blood Dagger!”
Since everyone was raising their voices, the young children also followed suit. Amongst them, Yoora in the center was also softly raising her voice.
“For…For Blood Dagger.”
Interestingly enough, she spoke using the Green Skin tongue. They were definitely memorizing the vocabulary, and had prioritized this saying first. Glancing to the side, I saw Hayeon nodding with satisfaction. It seems that despite her hatred for Humans, she had a weak side towards children.
“For Blood Dagger!”
Now, they were exhausting their voices as they shouted my name. I don’t assume these guys will betray me, nor Ahyeon as well. They consider me a hero that had rescued them rather than a monster. Unlike Ahyeon who had a specific goal, these little guys were honestly expressing their pure feelings from the benevolence they received. This kind of feeling wasn’t bad at all.
Then, I began to feel a gaze from somewhere. Turning around, I saw Black Spear looking over this way with an extremely intrigued look. Noticing that, I could confirm that they also supported my decision, including Little Finger who was by his side.
Thus, the welcoming ceremony continued to progress. The Three Goblin Sisters, Ragia, and Mev welcomed the young girls into the clan, and the rough, burly Orc Swordsmen brought over food and continued to hand them over to the children to eat. Fortunately, there was none that brought over Human meat. The mother Goblins were also taking care of the Human children like their own.
This was truly satisfying. It has only been a short while, but these children were showing a sincere appearance.
It was then. My ring began to glimmer bit by bit. Then, I was able to hear the good news that Ahyeon had finally arrived in Somorah.
[Savior-nim. I have arrived at Somorah.]
I smiled. Both Ahyeon and the Blood Dagger Clan had grown. Of course we had grown a lot ourselves, but above all, that woman’s perceptions to people had completely changed.
Maybe it was because of her frequent visits to the slums during her stay at the Sky Dragon Guild. Or rather it was because there were increased Pagans that were following her lead. Ridiculously enough, Ahyeon was currently being titled as the West’s ‘Saint’. At first, it was about thirty faithful followers that called her like this, and now there was over one hundred.
As the pagans’ beliefs grew in numbers, Ahyeon also became increasingly strong in her holy power, which allowed her to maintain the nickname of ‘West’s Saint.’
[Thank you, Savior-nim. Knowing that you are happy. While we were heading to Somorah, our followers had increased a bit for Blood Dagger.]
I wasn’t sure what she was saying, but this religion would eventually identify itself like an amoeba and start swallowing up the whole Continent.
[Good work. So, how’s Somorah?]
[The atmosphere is a bit dark, but it’s not too bad. I don’t see any poor people either.]
[Is that so.]
There was one hundred people in the group including Ahyeon. In other words, there were one hundred bombs. They will be the ones that will send the signal to attack the city, but before then, they have to do something.
It was to approach and make contact with the slaves inside Somorah. Originally, Somorah would be completely destroyed in two years due to the rebellion of the slaves. The one who would raise this rebellion would be the Troll Shaman. So finding this guy was our first priority.
Of course, it would be most ideal for me to approach the Troll Shaman, but thankfully I had an alternative, and that was Ahyeon.
Noticing my serious expression, Ragia immediately came over in which I gave her an order.
“Bring Lee Wanyong over.”
“Yes. I will follow your command.”
Immediately, Lee Wanyong was brought over who was now a bit puzzled. Seeing that the children were welcomed, his expression had somewhat lightened. As a result, he was believing the lie that he was going to be spared.
[My apostle. I have something for you to do.]
[I will follow anything you bid, my Savior.]
As I mentioned, I told her to try and make contact by first finding the slave traders. Since they had just arrived, it wouldn’t be easy in making contact. That was why I needed Lee Wanyong to pave the way. The path that Ahyeon, the Pagans, and I would be heading for is the basement.
“Where do you go to obtain the slaves who regular buyers cannot purchase?”
“Well… I can tell you the location, but you need adequate privilege.”
It seems that power, fame or money was needed to be qualified. I asked again.
“If it’s the title of West’s Saint, will it be enough?”
“Yes? How…How could that person.”
“Answer what I ask, Lee Wanyong.”
“Yes…yes. It’ll…it’ll be enough probably.”
Soon, he began to explain, but the method was quite old-fashioned. Apparently, you were supposed to enter a tavern and say a password which made me curious why didn’t they use a more advanced method. Although there was the condition that you had to pay in advance or have enough Points accumulated in order to go down, but reaching them first was important. I began to transmit the information I acquired from Lee Wanyong over to Ahyeon.
[Go into the Cactus Tavern and tell the waiter what I said.]
She was probably heading over, and soon I heard her voice again engaged in a conversation.
[It is His calling. Since we do not need a lot of people to enter here, send a few back.]
[Yes… everything for His will.]
Soon, the group entered the tavern together, and I was able to hear Ahyeon’s voice once more.
[I want to drink alcohol with stronger dosage…do you sell it here?]
The bartender of the tavern began to speak.
[Cherry brandy should be enough.]
After some time, Ahyeon spoke to me.
[I have entered a strange place, Savior-nim.]
[Was there nothing strange?]
[Yes. Although there were a few Humans that were extremely surprised, other than that…]
It was understandable how surprised one would be to know that the West’s Saint had come to Somorah and then immediately looked for the basement. If there were any amongst them that really respected and admired Ahyeon, it would be even more alarming.
The objective of this mission was already explained earlier. Soon, I began to hear a conversation with Ahyeon and another man. Though it was extremely frustrating being unable to hear what the man was saying, but I tried to anticipate how the conversation was going with what Ahyeon was saying.
[Does someone need a special right to enter this place?….. Everyone has a dark side, and that includes me. I wonder if my secret will be guaranteed. I’m afraid that my fame will bring unnecessary… …Ah, what a relief. You don’t have to worry about the money.]
First, he exclaimed from the visit of the West’s Saint. Second, he asked for the reason why she had come, and third, he probably asked if she had enough money. There was no mistake this was how the conversation was going with what Ahyeon said. Other than the fact that the money we earned from hunting was given over to Green Goblin, the rest of the money was all possessed by Ahyeon so it wasn’t strange that she was doing well by herself. Rather, she was worried about saying anything since it might stop the money flow over to her.
[I have heard that you keep monsters as slaves. I’m curious if you have any strong slaves in holding?….. How much do I have to offer to possess that guy? …….. What a shame.]
It seemed that the stronger a guy was, the more impossible it would be to fully possess the monster. But a loan would be possible.
[Three days… hmm… so that’s the limit… . . . . . . I do not care how much money I have to pay. The species… Troll would be great since it is the strongest. That is the most important. I will give you the amount of gold that you want. . . . . . It does not matter that it does not look like a Monster. No, rather having a monster’s appearance will be good.]
Perfect. At this rate, I’ll probably be able to meet the guy.
[Purpose? Do I have to explain that as well?]
They’re asking basically everything. Since it might bring a danger to those who were managing the slaves, they were probably worried that she might bring harm to them. Surprised, she swept away their worries with a single statement.
[I have a strange preference…so I would like it if you weren’t to inquire further. Of course I will not harm you so please be relieved…]
From that thunderous statement, even I became surprised. In that instant, the woman that was called the West’s Saint had unofficially been changed into the greatest adulteress.
Calvis: LOL, well looks like it’s not only Blood Dagger that has a fetish.
T0ngan: Saint of the West, Pagans & Slaves – can this city truly survive the three forces already within it’s walls? Nice to have young humans in the clan!
