Chapter 132 Part-2
Along with Goff’s shout, my body shot instantly up into the air. Goff has sent me into the sky. I’m not sure how much power he applied, but I began to rise up into the sky with incredible speed. All the while, I was focused on the b.a.s.t.a.r.d’s neck.
I swapped the sword that was too big to be called a sword with ancient fire. If this was a judicial execution, I would be able to cause a fatal injury on the Beast of the East. I wasn’t sure if I could apply enough power as I could not plant my feet, so I pulled both of my arms far back over my head in mid flight. The power was redirected towards the arms, and every magic power in my body has been concentrated at my shoulders and arms. (EN: Kaaa Meee Haaaaa…)
I swung the sword as the b.a.s.t.a.r.d’s neck came closer and closer.
With burning flames, the sword drew an oblique line.
The timing was perfect. I could feel the b.a.s.t.a.r.d’s body being cut. The hide that was supposed to be very hard was split like tofu. However, as if it was not strong enough to cut the bastard’s muscles and bones, the Ancient Fire began to lose steam.
No! I will cut!
I, switched the Ancient Fire with the great big sword. (EN: Calling “the sword that is too big to be called a sword” “Gargantua” from now on.)
Another opportunity to hand down the deadly judgment, I would even cut through the bastard’s bones.
The area of the bastard’s neck was too wide for one person to do it.
However, I kept swinging the sword.
The blood spewed into my eyes, but I paid it no mind.
I would slice.
I WILL cut it off.
I could not remember how many times I have initiated the ancient powers, but my body kept moving forward.
Finally, I completely passed through the b.a.s.t.a.r.d.
One of the bastard’s heads became completely severed.
“Blood…Blood Dagger has cut off the Beast’s neck!”
The sound of cheers rose up to me. Even to me, it was an awesome scene. The feeling must have been a mutual one from their side as well. I saw that the swordsmen of the Blood Dagger Clan were cheering as I dropped to the ground but if they asked me to do it again, I would have most likely failed.
This scene was made possible by persistent, sustained attacks from the Black Spear Clan, and the effects of Goff’s power. Perhaps, it has been cauterized by the ancient fire as there was no blood spewing out of the severed neck.
In an effort to share its pain, the Beast of the East was wailing as it rolled on the ground. Even then the arrows and magic spells kept piercing into the b.a.s.t.a.r.d. Presently, Mev caught me as I was fast falling down.
She needed both hands to handle my bulk, but the speed at which I was falling definitely slowed down. Fluttering her wings restlessly, Mev spoke to me as she looked at me with awe.
“That…That was great! Leader, are you OK!?”
In fact, I’ve used up a lot of magic power, but she didn’t need to know. As we landed, Mev looked at me with sparkling eyes, and even Baek Ahyeon and her followers were praying. They have witnessed something incredible, I understand, but it’s too soon to relax.
“Mev, move the main unit to the back now, the swordsmen too, will be moved back for a little bit. From now, everyone follow Hakajin’s orders. It’s same for Gara and Orbo too. Ogres, once again, get ready to throw the ropes, and Black Spear, too, stand by for a bit.”
Nodding her head as if she understood the situation and my urgency, Mev immediately disappeared into the midst of the main unit; the troops needed to be reorganized.
If there was a problem, it was that I’ve digested the b.a.s.t.a.r.d’s threat level. I raised the ends of my lips, seeing the eyes of Hydra, the Beast of the East, were certainly focused on me.
Although the beast appeared to have health left, it was certainly exhausted as well. What was motivating the Beast of the East was none other than wrath, and I felt all of its hostility directed at me for severing a neck.
I wasn’t sure if I could do it, but I had to make it happen. As the brief pause ended, the b.a.s.t.a.r.d immediately began to charge at me. I briefly looked over at the main unit, who clearly have understood my order since they are moving away from the b.a.s.t.a.r.d’s range. Upon estimating the distance in my head, I was certain that Hakajin was controlling the troops.
As the bastard charged at me, it tried to stamp down on me with one of its feet.
‘I can dodge.’
The effective area was wide, but with my agility, I thought that it was an attack that I could easily dodge. However, the real threat was the middle head as a shadow swooped upon me instantly when I tried to dodge away.
Someone’s enormous backside came into my view. It was someone, wearing a shield on his back and holding on to the bastard’s two teeth with his hands. His muscles kept bulging as if to explode. Shaking his hands, he was holding the beast’s mouth, as much as possible, preventing it from moving forward. I felt the heat coming off of his back.
There was only one who could do such a thing among the three united tribes.
It was Goff.
Having pushed off the bastard’s head, Goff took the shield from his back once again. After seeing that, I jumped on Goff’s back and made a long cut on the bastard’s neck. Goff, too, screaming madly, took out his ax. As I was looking at the big swinging ax, which appeared to have been impossible to hold on to, I saw blood spewing out of the b.a.s.t.a.r.d’s neck.
Not a bad continuation.
The hunt for the Beast of the East was coming to an end.
