Reincarnation Genius Sword Master - Episode 1
The cool night breeze, the moonlight with his head halfway out, and the sense of living as an assassin all whisper the same thing.
I’m going to die soon.
I looked around.
There were numerous side paths between the trees in the garden that looked as soft as wool.
But there is no way to survive. The only thing left is the stench of death.
I raised my head to the sound of a voice weighing heavily on my heart. I see a middle-aged man with long, frost-covered silver hair.
This is sleep.
Because of this one man, the owner of the Robert family, this entire huge garden radiated a strong morale like a swamp of death.
I swallowed my dry saliva and opened my mouth.
“You have shown performance worthy of your position as head of the shadow. “Thanks to your actions from behind the scenes, the family’s growth has accelerated.”
“I just did what I had to do.”
I didn’t pretend to be happy or unhappy. She bowed her head like an emotionless wooden doll.
“By the way, Raon.”
He cried softly.
“Do you think shadows need freedom?”
Derus stretched out his hand. His shadow on the floor held out his hand in the same way.
“A shadow follows its master and that’s it. “There is no need for thoughts, feelings, or heart.”
“If you knew that, why did you move yourself?”
Derus’ suddenly cold voice tightened my heart.
“How did you solve the brainwashing?”
A chill rose up my spine. She bit her tongue to keep from acting surprised.
He didn’t say or do anything different from before, so I don’t know how he knew that the brainwashing had been lifted.
“Say it. “When and how did you get rid of the brainwashing?”
Getting this far meant that you already knew everything.
“How did you know?”
I bit my lip and raised my head.
That is how the Robert family operates the assassination group ‘Shadow’.
They kidnap or purchase young children, kill their emotions, brainwash them, and use them as assassins for the rest of their lives.
I too was brainwashed, but thanks to the luck I gained by chance, I was able to break free of those terrible shackles.
“Because you were preparing to run away from your family.”
Derus continued speaking leisurely.
“The shadow assassins, including you, have been placed on two leashes. The first is brainwashing and the second is… .”
I screamed involuntarily due to the pain that felt like my lungs and heart were being sawed through.
“It’s a lazy worm. “The bug I put inside you is following my orders and eating your heart.”
“Re, Lazy Worm… .”
Lazy Worm is the worst spell that can even grasp the emotions of slaves.
Derus seems to have noticed that I was trying to escape from the family using Lazy Worm.
“Well, you pretended to be fair all by yourself, but as brainwashing wasn’t enough, you even fed me Lazy Worm? “This is terrible!”
“It’s not terrible, it’s thorough. “You actually got rid of your brainwashing, right?”
Derus smiled with the kind eyes he showed externally.
“There is a saying that everyone lives wearing a mask. “My mask is just a little thicker and more special than others.”
“Derus Robert… .”
I gritted my teeth. She stood up, enduring the pain that felt as if her heart was being split in half.
You can’t die without being able to do anything.
I was kidnapped at an age I can’t even remember properly and raised to be a hunting dog and assassin in the shadow of the Robert family.
After living without emotions and mind, I was able to barely escape the brainwashing by gaining strength.
I thought I could finally live according to my own will, but what came back was not the key to escape the cage, but the shackles of death.
I don’t know what crime I committed that I have to live such a shitty life.
Red water is filling up the dried up well of emotions. It was the first time I felt anger.
“You stand up in that state?”
A small tremor appeared in Derus’ eyes.
“I won’t die ugly until the end.”
I grabbed the sword hanging from my waist.
The sense of death I felt upon entering the garden did not change.
I die here.
If I’m going to die anyway, I won’t take it. I will die with at least one wound, if not an arm.
He lashed out his sword, exploding the aura filled with Danjeon.
The extended blade snapped in half.
I hear the sound of the necklace around my neck falling to the ground.
The world rotated, Derus’ cold eyes turned upside down, and the moon turned upside down.
I finally found out. My head was cut off by Derus’ sword.
But the assassin’s sword isn’t everything it looks like.
The eerie Auror hidden behind the broken blade flew towards Derus’ pale face.
Derus waved his hand as if he was annoyed. His last sword strike was extinguished like a candle with a light hand gesture as if swatting away a fly.
I knew it… .
Derus is a warrior who is said to be the strongest on the continent. It’s natural that I don’t win.
Because he is strong and I am weak. I can’t help it. Yeah, I can’t help it… There is no way!
The anger that had been spreading from the bottom of my chest boiled like lava.
It was unfair that I had been toyed with by Derus for my entire life, and I was madly disappointed that I could not complete the ‘Ring of Fire’ that I had earned by chance.
I can’t die like this.
God and devil are both good.
The moment my whole body was filled with anger that I would do whatever it took to remove Derus’ mask and cut off his head, my world turned red.
* * *
Derus Robert raised his right hand and frowned.
‘It was definitely blocked.’
Even though I completely blocked that scum’s last sword strike, a small wound appeared on the back of my hand.
I don’t know how many years it’s been since I had a bleeding wound.
‘This is outrageous.’
He de-brainwashed himself, endured the pain of Lazy Worm, and even injured himself.
I was perplexed as to what happened to the hunting dogs raised as expendable items.
Raon is already dead. He was beyond common sense, but he didn’t need to care anymore.
“Clean it up.”
When Derus turned his back, the warriors hiding in the shadows of the garden came out and approached Raon’s body.
Raon’s necklace, soaked in red blood, gave off a blue light, but no one could see it.
[You were selected by
[An error occurred… .]
* * *
A fantasy concept that most people think exists but do not believe in.
Raon also did not believe in reincarnation.
I had been brainwashed my whole life, and when I was freed from the brainwashing, I was so busy preparing to escape the Robert family that I didn’t even think about such absurd things.
I thought that if I died, it would be the end.
But … .
“Sunshine. Look here!”
A red-eyed beauty with soft blonde hair falling over her shoulders shakes a blue rattle.
“There’s a red one too!”
He also held out the red rattle he was holding in his left hand.
The blonde woman frowned at the sound of the two rattles colliding, but did not stop her hands.
Raon sighed softly and held out his hand toward the rattle.
“okay! come here!”
The blonde woman smiled brightly and twirled the rattle even more excitedly.
There are two things I can see right now. A woman with arms as chubby as sausages and excitedly shaking a rattle.
‘I still can’t get used to it. That arm is my arm, and that person is my mother… .’
That woman’s name is Sylvia. It’s still hard to believe, but I was reincarnated as that woman’s child, retaining the memories of her past life as an assassin.
At first, I naturally thought it was a dream.
I thought it would all be over after I took a nap, but no matter how much I slept, I couldn’t wake up from this strange dream.
After each day of such doubt, 100 days passed, and only then did Raon accept the fact that he had been reincarnated.
“Sunshine! “This way!”
As we slowly crawled towards the rattle, Sylvia backed away little by little.
“yes! little bit more!”
Raon toddled along after Sylvia and held out his hand toward the rattle.
However, he could not overcome the heavy weight of his head and his body tilted to the right.
Sylvia threw away the rattle and threw herself to embrace her body that was about to fall.
Her body was quick. Although she didn’t feel like an Auror, she seemed to have learned some decent martial arts.
“You’re surprised, right? are you okay. are you okay.”
Sylvia patted Raon on the back.
Raon waved his hand. She expressed that she was fine because she wasn’t the least bit surprised, but she didn’t stop her tapping.
“Our sunshine. “Would you like to see Mom and Kkotnim?”
Silvia went to the window carrying herself and opened the curtain. The warm sunlight fell on her, making her feel soft like a cotton blanket.
‘It’s still called sunshine… .’
Of course, the sunbeam that Sylvia calls is not her name, but her birth name.
The head of the house came and said he had to decide on a name, but he was so busy that he couldn’t even see his nose.
Inevitably, 100 days later, it was still called Sunshine, its nickname.
Raon looked around while being held in Sylvia’s arms.
The room was large enough to run around, the walls were covered with luxurious sea-green wallpaper, and there was a magic lantern on the ceiling that was lit up at night.
As a child who sleeps more than 20 hours a day, I couldn’t understand much, but I knew one thing for sure.
This is a rich house. It’s also a fairly prestigious family.
If you were to be reincarnated anyway, a family with money or power would be better than an ordinary family.
‘Because I need revenge.’
The eerie feeling of Derus having his head cut off is still good.
I thought all my emotions had been worn away as I was raised as an assassin, but perhaps the memories before my death were so strong that my anger and desire for revenge against that bastard clearly remained.
‘Still, you shouldn’t be hasty.’
Raon breathed calmly and calmed his mind.
Since I have only lived in this room so far, I have no idea where I am or what my location is.
Once you understand the situation, it is not too late to prepare for revenge.
The most important element of an assassin’s virtue was patience, and he was called the best assassin.
I could hold back my emotions and desire for revenge as much as I wanted.
‘There it is.’
Through his past life, he gained the ‘Ring of Fire’, the skill of a swordsman who was said to be the strongest on the continent 1,000 years ago.
If you learn the ‘Ring of Fire’ from now on, you may be able to kill Derus Robert not through assassination, but through direct combat.
We must endure and endure for that day to come.
‘Anyway, I’m starting to feel sleepy again… .’
As I was held in Sylvia’s arms and bathed in the warm sunlight, I fell into a deep sleep.
The baby was sleepy without even thinking about it, and the baby’s body was uncomfortable in many ways.
“Does the sun make you sleepy? Then let’s sleep.”
Sylvia smiles and pats her back more slowly. She was about to coo and go up her throat.
The door opened without knocking, and Sylvia’s direct maid came in.
“Go, the head of the family is coming!”
Sylvia, who heard the maid’s words, opened her eyes in surprise.
Seeing that she calls him father, it seems that the head of this family was not her father, but her grandfather.
“G-get ready now… .”
“It’s already too late. “You made it right to the front!”
Sylvia and the maids were embarrassed and stamped their feet.
Step by step.
From outside the half-open door came the sound of hard steps that made me flinch.
‘Who is the head of the family?’
Raon gently opened his eyes and turned his head toward the door.
A red-eyed old man with brilliant blonde hair pulled over his forehead approaches. Both Sylvia and her maids trembled at those daunting steps.
The moment you look into the old man’s eyes, the passage of time slows down. It feels like the surroundings are blurring due to the overwhelming presence.
“Is it this kid?”
The blond old man who stopped in front of Sylvia gestured with a cold gaze.
Sylvia nodded heavily and handed Raon to the matriarch.
Raon’s round eyes opened wide. As I was looking at the head of the family from the front, I felt like I had seen it somewhere before.
‘Blonde and red eyes. And an old man with a cold-faced expression, as if he were covered in ice… ah!’
A thunderbolt struck my little head.
Glenn Sieghart, King of Destruction!
The owner of a family called the pinnacle of the continent was looking down at him.
A gasp came out of my small mouth.
I guess I was reincarnated into the strongest family on the continent.
