156 Part 2
A soldier who stumbled and showed a weak spot after being surprised at his sword changing into a dagger as he struck with full force now faced a rotten wooden spear. While his scream rang in my ears as the spear pierced his eye, I had no time.
I had to move forward, which was the most important thing. The first and foremost was to have Hyeji Kim’s eyes on me and mine on her. I ran in and swung the Ancient Flame.
I swallowed those who seemed to have weak magic resistance with the flames and ripped those who had mediocre armor with the longsword. I threw daggers at those targeting me from afar and pierced with my spear after exchanging weapons, the heads of those who were skilled enough to seriously attack me.
They were not weak, and each one would have made me shudder before.
‘I became stronger.’
I can see how to attack and where to go. While no one guided me, my body moved before I could think. I used a soldier’s corpse as a shield to block the arrows that fell at me because I threatened them.
I felt that the attack would come from the right, and instead of moving back, I pushed forward to carve a hole in his neck. I felt elevated as the blood sprayed on my face, and I smiled while beheading the next guy’s head with the Ancient Flames. Since each one was a critical hit, I had no reason to strike after calculating each person’s weak spot.
While I did not exchange weapons, the critical hits kept coming due to my job and item effects.
“Catch that demon!”
“It’s the Weapon Thief! Catch him!”
If the focus were on me, it was inevitable that the Blood Dagger Clan members would come flowing in. While I had not swung a sword, the guy next to me lost his head. It was Gark who came out of nowhere with a longsword.
“Me Half Blade will follow Blood Dagger!”
Gark’s brother Hark appeared next to him, who sliced a soldier’s body with four swords.
“Mirror Blade is here! I will follow Blood Dagger!”
They always worked hard to follow me, and they also had become stronger. Those with goals always did.
While we had made progress, there was still some distance. However, Hyeji Kim was entering my sights, and she had finished casting. She must be preparing to shoot the spell.
Actually, in the case of magicians whose attacks were long-distance, Black Spear was at more of an advantage than me. However, the reason I chose Hyeji Kim despite knowing that was because she was the only gatekeeper who had a weapon that had not yet recognized its owner.
The dagger immediately changed to Hyeji Kim’s staff, and the magic that was casted cannot be stopped.
While the magic had burst out, spells without catalyst would become weaker. However, the first spell came pouring down at me with astounding force. I jumped up and put magic inside the Ancient Flame, and a large magic orb without any assigned properties was flying at me.
‘I can slash it.’
There was no reason why I could not, and when I struck right after I continued to change weapons, I felt a diagonal line burn up in the air. The magic orb was unbelievably cut in half, and my clan members also opened their mouths in surprise. The magic in the Ancient Flame and the critical hit interacted with each other for an amazing sight. However, I could not afford to be relieved yet.
Hyeji Kim must have been casting three spells, including the dispel.
A massive pillar made of light came out of her ordinary dagger, and she showed that she truly was strong. It was magic fitting for someone who was partly in charge of this city, and that dagger burst out the strongest magic I had seen in my life.
However, I put in magic, as much as I could, into the Aegis Ring and reached out. Part of a shield formed in front of me and the effect of this item that unconditionally blocked a fatal attack was beyond imagination. An attack that could not be blocked was now obstructed by the shield and scattered everywhere.
“F…for Blood Dagger!”
“For Blood Dagger!”
My clan shouted in joy as I continued to show them amazing feats. While I used up a lot of magic, I still had some left. I lowered my hand.
I saw Hyeji Kim look at me in despair, and she looked like how I had when I faced Park Hyeri for the first time. I smiled widely.
She was shooting magic like she was deranged, but they could be blocked. Orbo was using magic on an enormous shield, and it bounced off all magic aimed at us. While I was uncertain whether I could summon Aegis again, I enjoyed how she self-destructed in fear. I slowly unsheathed a sword as I faced them. It was Dain’s inheritance.
