158 Part 1
Chapter 158 I’ll be back
Jung Huicheol, Black Spear’s opponent, was also quite strong. He was an agile archer that used a bow. Their battle styles did not put one at an advantage, and while Black Spear might have better chances at winning if Jung Huicheol was like Kim Hyeji, I was a bit anxious.
Since it was a long-distance fight where the warriors of each clan protected the frontline, I thought the fight might take long, but it had been my mistake.
I heard Black Spear throwing his spear through the air as I ran and felt massive magic.
I heard a human scream, and I had to smile. Black Spear managed to succeed in catching the guy. The scene before me was quite gruesome. Human beings were pierced by black spears and were stuck on the wall, and they looked like insect specimens. I heard some beg for their lives, but the Black Spear Clan members could not understand what they were saying. The voices of those who were not on the wall but who formed a defense formation were becoming smaller.
Jung Huicheol would be the one who had the most spears stuck in him, and they were through his hands, feet, and body. The damage was fatal for an archer who was vulnerable, and he did not seem to be breathing. While he did let out rough breaths once in a while, it seemed that he would die of blood loss soon.
I watched the rest of the enemies being cleaned up by the Black Spear side and had to reassess Black Spear again.
Since he would step back and let Goff and I have all authority over things, I seemed to have underestimated Black Spear. Come to think of it, he came here three years before us. While I managed to follow him to a similar level, Black Spear was undeniably an experienced warrior. I slowly approached the Black Spear Clan since I did not need to rush things after seeing that the battle was almost over. Black Spear seemed to have seen me and opened his mouth as he placed his hand on his chest.
“You finished quickly.”
I nodded and stared at Black Spear. While I thought that he had to be injured, I did not expect so many arrows would pierce him. The opponent must have wanted to slow him down, as there were arrows on both his legs and stomach, and one had gone through his ear and remained there. It seemed that he had turned his head to avoid a head shot and the arrow struck there.
Since the Clan sorcerer continued to use healing spells on Black Spear, he would recuperate soon. However, I thought he could not battle again. Black Spear was looking at my uninjured body with slight surprise.
It seemed that he was curious why I was without a scratch when the three had been of equal strength. However, I could see him nod satisfactorily, and I spoke to Black Spear since I wanted to know about the battle.
“How was the fight?”
“He was a worthy opponent. I wanted to respect him.”
It seemed that Kim Hyeji had been a unique case. While I had heard that Jung Huicheol was a bad person, he seemed to have continued to train and hunt. Black Spear opened his mouth like he was amused when I said with my eyes to explain more specifically. No Green Skin disliked boasting tales like these.
“He had shot arrows to us when he first fell from the sky. Some of us died, but we threw spears to kill our opponents, and the strong human and I struck at each other a few times. That was when the battle began.”
“While it was tiresome to avoid the attacks, he was as strong as you have said. I stuck a spear in the human’s leg only when my own legs became useless, and that was when the battle ended.”
Black Spear said that he had endured and waited until he could finish the battle with one blow. Since Jung Huicheol had been hit with a spear that could crush the head of an Eastern monster, he must have felt that his leg was gone. It was like Jung Huicheol had been hit with a missile after hitting the opponent with a few shots.
I moved my gaze to Black Spear’s right hand that held a small round shield. I had recommended it to him before the battle, and it seemed to have been effective. I could see that there were countless arrows stuck on the shield.
“It was quite effective. While it’s a little burdensome, it’s useful for protecting myself against opponents like him.”
“It’s a relief if you think so.”
He spoke to me again as the situation was wrapping up.
“Has Goff won?”
I smiled as I opened my mouth.
“He can’t lose.”
I heard a massive drumroll that rang underground when I strengthened my ears with magic. The drumroll was coming closer, which meant that Goff was heading to us after defeating Kim Donghyun.
“So, everyone’s safe.”
