Reincarnation Genius Sword Master - Episode 40
Silver lines flow through the pure white snow that falls like heavy rain. It was a march of knights wearing armor.
“Prince, are you okay?”
A middle-aged knight so large that he looked like a bear looked down at the boy walking next to him.
“It’s still okay. However, the snowfall was heavier than expected and it seems to be difficult for the trainee knights.”
The boy called Prince turned around. Unlike the prince, who had a calm expression, the knights in training were clearly exhausted.
“Is it still far to Sieghardt?”
“Seeing as the heavy snow is getting stronger, it looks like we’re almost there.”
“We’re almost there. So do Sieghart’s swordsmen endure snowfall like this every day?”
“That’s not it.”
The middle-aged knight smiled slightly and shook his head.
“The weather gets more violent the further you go to Sieghard… .”
As soon as he opened his mouth, the snowballs stopped falling, and the sun, hidden behind gray clouds, revealed itself.
“The weather inside Sieghardt is absolutely beautiful. Of course, the temperature itself goes down further.”
The prince sighed and looked up at the sky. The sky was so clear that I thought the endless snow storm was a dream.
“No, the snow stopped all at once.”
The others also opened their mouths in surprise.
“The Duke of Tartan. What kind of weather is this… .”
“It’s magical, but it’s not magic. “Because of this strange natural environment, Sieghart is said to be a natural fortress.”
A middle-aged knight called the Duke of Tartan smiled and pointed to the huge castle wall ahead.
“Of course, Sieghart has also been breached before.”
The prince knew when it was, so he nodded calmly.
“We’re waiting on the other side too, so let’s go in first.”
Duke Tartan pointed to the people standing under Sieghard’s walls.
In front of an iron door so large that a giant could enter and exit, prosecutors wearing red coats were looking at us with sharp eyes.
The prince nodded briefly and headed towards the iron gate where Sieghardt’s gatekeepers were standing.

After finishing lunch, Raon returned to the training ground and stopped.
I could feel the presence of many people in the direction of the front gate. The sound of armor clashing with armor. It was a metallic sound that was usually difficult to hear in Sieghart.
After a while, Foreign Commander Iliun appeared, and knights wearing silver armor followed him.
‘Owen Kingdom… .’
A lion’s head was drawn on the left side of the silver armor. It was the emblem of the Owen Kingdom.
Other trainees and swordsmen also stopped and watched the knights of the Owen Kingdom pass by.
“It’s a delegation from the Owen Kingdom.”
Dorian came up next to him and let out a low whistle.
“We were cleaning every corner of the family a few days ago to announce the arrival of a delegation from the Kingdom of Owen. “Didn’t you know?”
“I did not know. However, it is too small to be called a delegation.”
Raon narrowed his eyes as he looked at the small children behind the knights.
“Ah, they are trainee knights who came with the three princes of the Owen Kingdom. “I guess we came together to increase our experience.”
“You know a lot.”
“Because rumors have already spread. “It’s an expression everyone knows.”
It seemed like the only people who didn’t know were himself, who was immersed in training, and Runan, who was usually just dazed.
Raon looked closely at the kingdom’s delegation.
‘It’s pretty strong.’
As if to prove that they were the same Six Emperors, the strength of the training knights was similar to that of the trainees of the 5th Training Armed Forces.
‘It doesn’t matter to me whether I’m strong or not… hmm?’
As I turned my head to go to the training hall, I made eye contact with the person standing in front of the training knights.
His blue eyes that seemed to capture the sky contained a strong spirit.
‘It’s a force that’s not befitting one’s age.’
I knew it just by making eye contact. That training knight is the strongest among them.
That’s just an evaluation at a teenage level. It was a long way from what I could see.
As expected, the blue-eyed child could not read his energy and looked at him for a moment before turning his head away.
‘I don’t have time to worry about things like that.’
I am busy improving the perfection of my footwork and swordsmanship. Since there was no need to clash with the kingdom’s delegation, a quick glance was enough.
Raon walked to the training ground with only the flow of walking techniques in his mind.
* * *
‘What is this…? .’
The three princes of the Owen Kingdom. For the first time in his life, Greer de Owen felt a shiver run down his spine.
I slowly raised my head. The more my eyes looked upward, the tighter my breathing became.
It’s all because of the man sitting up there.
Glenn Sieghardt, King of North Korea. Just looking at the gaze of the man who was said to be the strongest swordsman on the continent made my hands and feet feel weak.
“Thank you for coming.”
“Thank you for your hospitality.”
I was barely able to come to my senses thanks to the voice of Duke Tartan that I heard next to me.
“It’s believable even if it’s from the King’s childhood. “I understand why he cares.”
Glenn Sieghardt, seeing his own face, slowly lowered his head.
“Okay, thank you.”
The saliva in my mouth was dry and I couldn’t speak properly. Even though he didn’t show the slightest force, such a presence was an experience I had never felt even when facing the kingdom’s best sword.
“I have a letter from Your Highness.”
The Three Princes took out a golden envelope from their arms. I stood up by forcing my wobbly legs.
Although he was shaking, he approached the podium and handed out a letter to Glenn.
A small spark appeared in Glenn’s eyes at the sight, but it quickly disappeared.
“We have arranged for you to be able to observe the trainees’ training, as you requested.”
Glenn placed the letter next to him and slowly opened his mouth.
“We have prepared a banquet for the evening, so rest comfortably today and look back starting tomorrow.”
“Thank you for your consideration, matriarch.”
“Then let’s see later.”
The Three Princes took three steps back, bowed, and then stood up.
“The duke… .”
“I have something to say to the matriarch. “Please rest first.”
Duke Tartan smiled slightly and closed his eyes.
The three princes nodded briefly and left the throne room.
“He is a very talented child. He would sooner ascend to the throne than to the throne.”
After a moment of silence, Glenn spoke first.
“As expected, you understand it at a glance. The Three Princes are called the next greatest sword of the kingdom.”
“It’s definitely a rare talent.”
“Not only is he talented, but his will is also strong. “He also went to the south to see Robert’s swordsmanship.”
Duke Tartan looked at the door through which the three princes left and smiled happily.
Glenn raised the corners of his mouth slightly.
‘Talent, effort, and will… .’
Just by looking into the eyes of the three princes, you could see what kind of talent he had and what effort he had put in.
You must have gained a lot of experience and worked hard at a young age. But Glenn knew someone who was even better than him.
Knowing Raon’s hard work and will, the greatness of the Three Princes did not go unnoticed.
“You didn’t come to brag about the prince, so let’s get to the point.”
The letter in Glenn’s hand burned with a roar.
“You burn it without even looking at it.”
Even though the letter was burned, Duke Tartan’s expression did not change much.
“Because there’s no way that man would have entrusted an important letter to a child.”
The Duke of Tartan knelt down and bowed his head with a serious attitude, unlike when he boasted about the Three Princes.
“This is a message from King Lecross Albert de Owen II of the Kingdom of Owen.”
His eyes were filled with solemnity as he raised his head.
“The five darknesses have begun to move.”

Raon’s right foot moves forward smoothly like a salmon cutting through the current.
The left foot follows behind. The movements of his lower body were as fluid as a deer running through the bushes.
It’s not fast, but it’s smooth, and it’s not strong, but it’s standard.
The 12 forms of the Garambo method that he unfolded contained a cheerful freedom like a leaf in the wind.
Raon finished his training in the Garambo method with a jingak that shook the ground.
I let out an excited breath, straightened my back, and raised my head.
‘I’m still watching.’
When he looked back, the trainees who were watching his step training turned their heads in surprise.
Since the first day of learning the Garambo method, trainees have been practicing the method by looking at themselves, not by the instructor.
Buren, Runaan, and Marta were no exception.
Burren and Marta made eye contact and turned around, snorting.
Of course, Runaan did not avoid his eyes as if wondering what to do. Instead, she came closer and spread her steps. She meant to teach me.
Raon shook his head and pointed out the shortcomings in Runan’s walking technique.
“young master. “Can you please take a look at me too?”
Dorian approached me while gently scratching his stomach pouch and showed me how to walk.
“First of all, you have a high attitude. Lower it a little lower… .”
As I was telling him the problem, the door to the training hall opened and Rimmer came in.
‘What’s going on?’
Raon wrinkled his nose as he watched Rimmer walk quickly. It was also my first time visiting during break time.
“You all know that a delegation from the Owen Kingdom arrived today, right?”
Burren came forward and answered. He also widened his eyes as if he was surprised by Rimmer who came to visit during the break.
“They say they are holding a banquet for the delegation this evening. “They said that there are training knights, so you who are the same age can also participate.”
The trainees’ expressions brightened at the thought of seeing the knights of the Owen Kingdom and becoming friends with them.
Rimmer shook his head.
“You haven’t even mastered the Garambo technique properly yet. If it were me, I’d be embarrassed, so I couldn’t go. cancer!”
“Well, that’s… .”
The trainees bit their lips at the unexpected sound.
“uh? Are you sure you wanted to go? There’s a lot left to practice, right? “I wasn’t able to perfect my swordsmanship or footwork?”
He stuck out his face and glanced at the practitioners teasingly.
The practitioners lowered their heads, unable to find anything to say.
“There is only one person who can go from here.”
Rimmer’s eyes turned to Raon.
“What are you going to do?”
“I’m not interested.”
Raon shook his head and took his training sword. The Garambo technique has almost been perfected, but there is still a long way to go to harmonize it with swordsmanship.
Now was not the time to go to banquets and build connections, but it was the time to train to the best of your ability.
Rimmer grinned. An expression that said he knew that would happen. It is a smile filled with satisfaction.
“Well, if you really want to go, I’ll let you go. Who wants to go?”
He looked around at the trainees with his hand on Raon’s shoulder.
Raon, the strongest, also stayed behind to train, but it looks like he’s asking if you guys want to go.
“… doesn’t exist.”
Marta and Buren turned their heads and stepped back to practice.
“… … .”
Runan was not listening to Rimmer from the beginning and was only following the steps.
“Then continue practicing. As you become stronger, you will have countless opportunities to attend the banquet! “I’ll go then.”
Rimmer waved his hands as if teasing the trainees and left the training hall.
Raon looked at his back and scratched his cheek. Given Limer’s personality, he would normally send a banquet, but it was a little strange that he blocked it.
‘What are you thinking about again?’
* * *
The Sieghardt main building banquet hall is filled with brilliant lights instead of heavy snowfall.
Greer de Owen, the three princes of the Owen Kingdom, quenched his appetite and sat down in his designated seat.
After talking with Sieghardt’s people for several hours, I felt dizzy. As expected, this position was uncomfortable and I just wanted to swing my sword.
The reason I came to this unfavorable atmosphere and place was not only because of the king’s orders.
And it was to see the swordsmen polishing the sword.
The Three Princes gulped down the drinks on the table in one go and frowned.
‘They are definitely great warriors.’
The spirit of the Sieghardt prosecutors was noble and intense. My heart is pounding at the strength that is no less than that of the knights of the Owen Kingdom.
The powerlessness of Sieghardt’s young prosecutors, whom he had tried to see, was a disappointment itself.
If they were from another family or kingdom, they would certainly be considered outstanding talents, but they seemed inadequate to be the Six Emperor’s trainees.
‘It doesn’t even come close to Robert.’
It seems that the young swordsmen of the Robert family, the masters of the south, who went to Sieghart before coming to Sieghart, were more outstanding.
“There will be no need to look back tomorrow.”
Glenn was considerate enough to allow me to observe the trainees’ training, but at that rate, there was no particular reason to visit.
“You seem disappointed.”
I hurriedly turned around at the sound of a light voice coming from behind me.
An elf with red hair and dark green eyes was smiling with his back turned.
“Shall I show you the real thing?”
