Chapter 38. Awakening, Kang Chul-In! War Machine, Lucia!
Kang Chul-In was surprised at the inexplicable behavior of Lucia, but immediately tried to find the cause.
First, he followed Lucia’s gaze.
Lucia, who ran across, was staring at the sky far behind him, not at him.
Unless the eyes were on the back of the head, it was impossible to spot an enemy from the rear.
Kang Chul-In turned his head and looked at Lucia’s eyes.
At the moment Kang Chul-In’s eyes filled with embarrassment.
Something was diving at him, at a tremendous speed. The speed was great, and would only take a few seconds to hit him.
Kang Chul-In felt his stomach tighten as he realized the identity of the diving thing.
“Damn it, it’s a female.”
The Peacock Dragon he knows breeds and spawns every spring.
It was unusual that Peacock Dragons, moreover a pair of male and female, were here at the cyprus forest basin in this season like now.
Now he had to find a way to live somehow rather than complaining.
Right now, Kang Chul-In was in a state that he has no power left for even lifting his finger, as he had fought for a long time and used the mana fire intraburst. Completely exhausted, he still needed time to move his body.
Kang Chul-In concentrated his whole mind and tried to move his legs.
In fact, he was completely spent and couldn’t move his body due to exhaustion, but he had to move his body if did not want to die.
Despite the superhuman mentality, he was not able to move.
Kang Chul-In still tried to avoid the diving female peacock dragon even at the painfully slow speed which was all he was able to manage. It would have been nice if all the stamina and mana recharged because the level had risen, but that was only in a game.
In the end, Kang Chul-In decided to give up and accept his fate.
He was Kang Chul-In the Kingslayer, the Grand Sovereign.
If he can not avoid it, even if he die, it suited his temper to die in one strike. He did not want to be beaten to death.
Kang Chul-In was aiming at the right eye of the female Peacock Dragon only a short distance away. Now it was only the eye he could damage now.
It was when Kang Chul-In squeezed out his strength and stretched out his Vampiric Sword.
Lucia appeared like a lightning, covering his front side.
Chuck! The Aegis Shield covered Kang Chul-In.
“I protect the Lord.”
At the same time, the diving female Peacock Dragon and Lucia’s Aegis Shield collided.
Kang Chul-In and Lucia flew for several tens of meters and were thrown against the cyprus forest surrounding the basin, with a roar and a tearful sound.
Blood gushed out of Kang Chul-In’s mouth. It was his first injury after the resurrection.
“Sigh… That… almost killed me.”
While muttered dryly, Kang Chul-In looked at his abdomen. At the moment of the collision, the Peacock Dragon’s beak was scratched and his left side was pierced, and blood was pouring out.
“Lo,lord.. Are you alright…”
Lucia, who fell into Kang Chul-In’s arms, lifted her head. And she was surprised to see the wound in Kang Chul-In’s abdomen.
Lucia’s expression hardened.
“My..my lord…how dare…an inferior beast…to the master of my soul….”
Lucia, who spoke to herself with rage filled voice, suddenly got up.
“Lord… This Lucia…will protect you, my lord…please..for a while..please close your eyes for a moment…close your eyes…”
With those words, Lucia left Kang Chul-In’s side and started walking towards the Peacock Dragon.
Kang Chul-In couldn’t see it, but suddenly Lucia’s eyes were out of focus. Her facial expression was terrifying and it was frozen on her face as if she was a doll. Soon after…The deep-black darkness started to spread in Lucia’s eyes.
[War. Machine. Mode. Ready]
Mechanical voice flowed out of Lucia’s mouth.
[War Machine Mode, Operate!]
When the word ‘Operate’ came out, intense energy was emitted from Lucia’s body. At first glance, it seemed to be several times stronger than the original Lucia.
[War Machine Mode time remaining 4:59… 4:58…. 4:57…]
With Zenith, the Sword of Heaven, on her left hand and Aegis, the Shield of God on her right, Lucia’s appearance was dignified and frightening as she was indeed a Warrior born for Battle.
