Second Continental War (11)
He wasn’t supposed to be here.
According to Kronos’ calculation, he should still be in Valhalla, but he appeared in front of Ares sooner than expected.
Kevin stepped forward through the grass.
Kevin’s gossip was a mess.
His rough, tousled hair was untidy, and the deep shadows set near his eyes gave him a tired look.
It looked like it didn’t need an explanation.
Kevin and his party must have been extremely difficult to get to Dmitry, and as soon as they heard the news of the Kronos Imperial Army, they seemed to have dispersed and wandered through the grass.
A sword was held in his right hand.
Kevin mumbled like a madman with deep sunken eyes.
“When I first got the report that you betrayed me. I couldn’t believe the news. You, who slaughtered the rankers of Valhalla for Dmitry a while ago, were actually a dog following the Kronos Empire. Everyone, including me, couldn’t accept that fact. At first, I thought I was denying the reality of the betrayal of a colleague who had left me on the battlefield, but as time went on, the ominous feeling that took over my head was a little different from others.”
Everyone was angry.
Chris, backed by evil, ordered a quick move, day and night, heading to the Frankish border.
Thanks to that, the schedule has been advanced.
It was also quite an exorbitant schedule that it took three days, and they arrived through the warp gate of the endless mountain range around the dawn of the third day.
Fortunately, Dmitry was unharmed.
Although he was relieved to know that Dmitry had not fallen, his anger at Ares for betraying Dmitry quickly grew.
“When I think about it, the reason it was hard for me to accept reality was because a strong man named Ares, whom everyone in Dmitry recognized, betrayed him. Knowing how fatal it would be if Ares betrayed him. If you can’t even guarantee victory, there’s a high probability that you’ll inflict damage enough to destroy Dmitry. It’s not that I trusted you, it was that I couldn’t accept your betrayal.”
That’s what Ares said.
It was a monologue to reflect on the situation.
Kevin showed his eyes shimmering in madness, and moved one step at a time towards Ares.
“I prayed to the sky every moment on the way to Dmitry. Please, please, let Dmitry stay safe. Never let it fall against a horde of evil like Kronos. And God listened to me. Dmitry is safe, and even the last wish I really wanted has come true.”
The two were close.
If they decided to attack each other, it was enough distance to swing swords at each other in an instant.
His rough, tousled hair represented his last wish.
“My last wish, please, is that I find you first. Ares. From now on, just as I prayed and prayed all night long, I will appease the spirits of the people of Dmitry who have been torn apart from their limbs.”
No conversation was necessary.
The moment Kevin’s words put a period.
Quiet rumble rumble.
Kevin and Ares rushed towards each other like crazy.
* * *
A bright light struck his vision.
Kevin twisted his head to let Ares attack flow, and without hesitation he cut Ares’ chest.
The attack was blocked.
But Ares’ expression was cold.
Kevin had clearly shown murderous intent in his recent attack, and there was no longer any camaraderie between the two.
“You stupid bastard. If you were going to deal with me, you shouldn’t have come alone.”
Kevin bounced back.
Ares’ aura swept through him, and he immediately caught up and attacked Kevin in a row.
Every time the six-star aura created a powerful wave, Kevin’s body shook.
Even though Kevin has achieved tremendous growth, he was not yet able to counter Ares’s aura head-on as he wasn’t Chris.
The attacks crossed.
After blocking the attacks that came in succession, Kevin narrowed the distance so close that he could feel the opponent’s breath.
Kaka Kaka Kaka!
Weapons were entangled in a frenzy.
When Kevin tilted his head, his bangs were cut off, and when he immediately tried to counterattack, Ares did not back down even a single step, but instead struck it down with force.
Even if he said he was aiming for a vital point while letting the attack flow, Ares’ loopholes were not revealed.
With the aura burning fiercely, Ares ripped off Kevin’s aura.
Ares took the lead.
He also made tremendous progress through training with Roman Dmitry, and, regardless of the difference in strength, he overwhelms Kevin in swordsmanship.
A talent that was once called Valhalla’s greatest talent.
The years he had accumulated one after another were fully in full bloom when he met Roman Dmitry.
he was real
The skill that overcame Chris.
Ares’ presence weighed down on Kevin, and he trampled on Kevin who came violently bumping into him.
The leg was cut shallowly, but that was the beginning of the crack.
Ares’s attack worked little by little.
Kevin’s pattern of avoiding the attack did not work due to the intermittent difference, and Ares did not allow Kevin’s attack even once, as if taming a mad dog.
It was a clear superiority of skill. It was a solid basic skill that perfectly blocks anomalous attacks, and the mood changed from a moment to moment.
Kevin’s stupidity was broken. After Ares blocked all the attacks, Kevin had to deal with a quick counterattack.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!
Rumble rumble rumble.
The Sura swordsmanship learned from Roman Dmitry was manifested, and the space from which Kevin could escape was blocked.
As Ares said, Kevin made a mistake.
If you really wanted to deal with Ares, you would have to bring a comrade to help you instead of looking around Dmitry alone.
Kevin was strong.
Even Ares, who was called a genius, wasn’t this strong at Kevin’s age.
But this is a battlefield.
No matter how promising the future was, it was a cruel world in which the present’s shortcomings changed the name.
arm bounced off
Ares, who pushed Kevin into a corner, showed a cruel smile.
He raised his sword and blocked it.
The aura was torn away.
And at the same time, Kevin’s chest was torn apart and blood spattered everywhere.
* * *
Battle with Ares.
The outcome of the confrontation was clear.
Kevin has had two fights with Chris so far for the spot of Dmitry Lee In-ja.
At the beginning of the match, even with Roman Dmitry’s help, he was overwhelmingly defeated, and he challenged himself to take the sword Roman Dmitry gave him, but even then, he could not overcome Chris’ high wall.
Chris was strong.
As Kevin grew, he also developed rapidly, and people said that Chris was above Kevin.
Ares defeated Chris like that.
The battle on the battlefield is not a world where simple calculations work, but it was a fact that everyone agreed that Ares, who defeated Chris, was stronger than Kevin.
So Ares was wary of variables.
I thought that Kevin might have accompanied his colleagues, but to his absurdity, Kevin was really alone.
It was funny.
There was no reason to waste time.
With the sword that cut through Kevin’s chest, Ares was convinced that the battle had come to an end.
Kevin stepped back.
The darkened eyes sank coldly, and blood was pouring down from his tattered chest.
In fact, the fight is over.
Ares had once thought of Kevin as a companion, but had no intention of giving him any sympathy to spare him because their pursuits were different.
“It’s definitely strong.”
Kevin chuckled and laughed.
His eyes were not normal.
Kevin lowered his posture like a wild beast and looked at Ares, not paying attention to the wounded part.
“When I said I was chasing after you alone, others were terrified. Even if you really find Ares, would you be able to handle him on your own? Ares, which even Chris-sama couldn’t defeat.”
The wounded area was swollen.
The dripping blood stopped at some point, and the wounds began to become entangled with each other.
It was a horrifying sight.
Ordinary people were recovering wounds that were not strange even when they died, only with regenerative power.
“I agree with them. I challenged Chris twice, and both times I lost horribly. by the way. The battles in the past are just battles in the end. A confrontation in the pure meaning of not risking your life or harming your opponent’s life. I don’t think I’ll lose to Chris-sama even on the battlefield.”
grabbed the sword.
It was a strange atmosphere.
Ares, who was approaching Kevin, also stopped walking in a dangerous atmosphere.
“I do not assert. It’s a different story when you’re dealing with me on the battlefield.”
Kevin once again ran towards Ares.
* * *
It was fast.
Seeing Kevin appearing in front of him in an instant, Ares looked at his attack with a calm face.
familiar with the eyes
Ares blocked Kevin’s attack at once, and cut without missing the slightly exposed gap.
Blood spattered from his arm.
Still, Kevin didn’t show any particular reaction.
He didn’t groan in pain, but he didn’t turn back with agitation.
As he immediately launched a chained attack, Ares’ eyes rolled quickly to grasp the next attack.
Turn around and dodge the attack.
He slashed Kevin’s back as he slashed inside, and, in response to the counter-attack from the bottom up, instead, he faced Aura head-on and pressed it down with force.
There was a huge shock.
Shortly after a strong wave swept through, Kevin cut off his arms and legs as soon as he saw him attacking the bottom quickly.
blood was splattered
got it right
I thought I would show a shaky figure this time, but Kevin’s eyes, stained with madness, were unmoved.
‘Have you forgotten the pain of madness?’
It was certain.
On the battlefield, Kevin was often seen tinged with madness, then forgetting the pain and showing a daring attitude.
It moves like a wild beast that transcends human limits.
Despite the appearance of driving like crazy outside the standardized frame, Ares did not get caught up in the enemy’s momentum.
Just because you don’t buy yourself doesn’t mean you can reduce the overwhelming gap. Losing reason was rather an opportunity for Ares.
a fleeting moment.
Ares’ eyes changed.
cut his arm
This time it was deep.
Ares was one step quicker, and the feeling of being cut deep was convinced that this time, apart from the pain, there was a problem with the body.
Forgetting the pain is only a self-suggestion.
Just because the wounds on the body are painless, doesn’t mean they don’t exist, so if they cut this much, Kevin had to stop.
Quiet rumble rumble.
“… … !”
I opened my eyes.
It was really a small difference.
Kevin attempted a counterattack by swinging his sword upward as if nothing had happened, and Ares cut off the opponent’s thigh as soon as he avoided the attack.
However, this time, Kevin’s counterattack was aimed at the decisive point.
Clearly, deep cuts were made in his arms and thighs, but his movements did not slow down in the slightest.
at that time.
Kevin’s arms and thighs.
The wounds there were regenerating as if the chest had recovered.
The wounds intertwined with each other exhaling smoky smoke went beyond common sense.
The stage of encroachment.
completely drenched in madness.
Kevin’s mind worked as the madness told him, and he didn’t mind any wounds on his body.
Each attack inflicted wounds on his body. Blood splattered, and the skin cracked.
Kevin looked drenched in blood, but he did not slow down the speed of running towards Ares.
arm is cut
Ares’s arm was cut shallowly.
When Ares contorted his expression in pain and cut off Kevin’s side, Kevin stabbed Ares’ heart in a situation where his intestines were cut so deep that it was about to pour out.
The attack didn’t work.
However, due to the daring attack that resembled Donggwijin’s technique, Ares was hurriedly avoiding the body, so the flow of mana was entangled.
It was an unconventional battle.
The appearance of the blood-stained ghosts chasing after them caused a rift in Ares’s composure, which was like a fortress.
‘If time drags on like this, nothing can be done.’
It doesn’t end with Kevin.
Having to deal with him and assassinate King Dmitry, Ares could not spend any more time here.
Quiet rumble rumble.
It caused an aura.
Kevin’s skills were recognized.
He showed the power to push himself at such a young age, but he didn’t think it would change the outcome of this fight.
Kevin’s anomaly is a bewildering surprise to those unfamiliar with it.
But for Ares, who was once his colleague, Kevin’s move revealed a clear weakness.
Kevin dug in.
A daring and surprise attack.
The moment he met his maddened eyes, Ares’ lips twisted.
“I don’t admit you.”
That Kevin will be boldly digging into it.
He swung his sword accordingly.
If you cut off your head, no matter how monstrous you are, you will never be able to survive.
But at that moment.
His eyes, which had been dyed with madness, returned to their original form and looked directly at Ares.
The 3rd stage of ghost magic.
It was the domain of control.
Kevin, who had set foot in a new realm, showed a step back, unlike in the past.
Quiet rumble rumble.
The attack missed.
Their gazes intertwined in the air.
The moment Ares clenched his teeth and tried to attack immediately.
Kevin exploded his power.
‘The first half of the Celestial Swordsmanship.’
Ares, who showed a clear superiority in strength, was swept away by Kevin’s attack this time.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!
A scream rang out.
Ares miraculously defended the attack in the midst of it, but the sword technique of the Heavenly Demon ripped Ares’ aura to pieces and slashed his body as it was.
He was different from Kevin.
He didn’t have the abnormal resilience like Kevin, so he knelt on the spot, flapping his blood-stained hair.
“Whoa, whoa, whoa.”
It was an unbelievable situation.
When he decided to betray, he never imagined losing to Kevin and not to Roman Dmitry.
over his head.
Kevin’s voice was heard.
“I told you. Fighting for your life is a different story.”
grabbed his hair.
Ares’s head slipped away. When he lifted his head and looked at Kevin, he saw the blood-stained figure of Kevin just like himself.
It was just surprising that he was still standing in such an ignorant way.
Ares wanted to attack Kevin with his trembling hands, but his body was already out of control.
That was then.
Kevin poured the potion into Ares’ face.
“Don’t die so easily. You will heal the souls of the people of Dmitry who have died in this war, and you are my gift for the lord who will surely return.”
A potion that forcibly enters the esophagus.
It was a tragic end he could not have imagined.
