Reincarnation Genius Sword Master - Episode 47
After completing strength and agility training at the indoor training center, Raon came to the outdoor training range.
‘There is none.’
I kept hearing the sound of swords being thrown outside, so I thought Runaan was there, but I couldn’t see him. It seems like she went home first for some reason.
‘It’s annoying when it’s there, but it’s a little disappointing when it’s not there.’
Runaan always waits until training is over, nods in greeting, and then leaves.
Normally, I didn’t feel anything, but I felt a little disappointed that I couldn’t receive that greeting.
‘That’s a shame. I guess I was brainwashed.’
Raon smiled and left the training hall. With Burren and Marta still inside, he didn’t need to finish like usual.
– Now might not be the time to think about that, right?
‘What do you mean?’
-… … .
Lars said no more. His mouth was closed and he was only looking towards the west.
Raon turned his head towards Lars. I couldn’t feel anything, but her mood was subtle.
‘just in case.’
The ring of fire rotated and the manga ball’s aura was raised. It even activated the sense of folk tales and spread the spirit widely.
I caught something in the distance not too far away. But I didn’t feel anything.
‘Someone used a trick.’
This means that an unknown person used aura to block sounds and presence.
‘I guess I should go.’
Normally I wouldn’t have cared about it or not, but Lars’ reaction made me feel like I had to go.
I used shadow footwork to completely hide my presence so that I could step out at any time, and ran to the place where the gimmick was set up.
Two people were standing in a dark alley, where even the family’s border prosecutors could not see.
One of them was Runaan, and on the other side was a tall man.
‘Why is he there? And that expression… .’
Runaan, who I thought had returned home, was holding both my hands tightly. His expression was similar to usual, but his eyes seemed to be frightened.
I saw the man on the other side.
A handsome man with silver hair and purple eyes like Runaan had a great sword strapped to his back.
It’s a name I’ve heard in a past life.
The genius of the Slyon family, and the twelve monsters expected to become the next Continental Ten Thousand. A man whose name was on the Twelve Stars of the Continent.
‘Then why are you scared?’
Even though Runan saw her brother, she did not smile or be happy, but was scared like a rabbit encountering a wild beast.
Sirion was saying something to Runaan, but I couldn’t hear it clearly. He suddenly took out a cute squirrel from his arms and held it out to Runan.
Then, when Runaan held out his hand, the squirrel burst open.
I couldn’t hear the sound because of the diaphragm, but I could tell that Runaan was screaming.
Sirion approached Runaan with a dry expression that gave goosebumps and began to whisper.
‘We have to stop it.’
I don’t know what it was, but I had a feeling that those words shouldn’t continue.
Raon stepped forward, filled with the aura of a manga ball.
The floor collapsed and a loud noise erupted. As Syria fell towards Runaan, she could be seen frowning.
“What are you?”
Raon did not miss the opportunity and stood in front of Runaan. He twisted his head and glared at Syria.
“What are you bothering Runaan?”
You have to pretend you don’t know who it is.
If you know that Syria and Runan are family, you cannot intervene. Because it’s someone else’s family.
However, if you pretend not to notice, there is room for intervention.
“If you’re going to ask someone else’s name, isn’t it better to reveal your own name first?”
Syria laughed leisurely.
“That’s not something a guy who set up a trick in an alley like this would say. “Are you a thief?”
Syria frowned at Raon’s mockery. But what can I say? She seemed to be acting. She’s not really embarrassed or angry, but it feels like she’s acting angry.
‘You know what kind of person this guy is.’
Derus Robert, who killed himself in his previous life. A stench like that came from Syria.
“Oh, you might think so. “But I am neither a thief nor a stranger. I am that child’s older brother.”
Syria pointed to Runan behind Raon.
“… … .”
Raon blocked Syria’s gaze and glanced at Runan. His expression was blank, but not his usual blank expression, but rather a look of severe shock. His small shoulders trembled pitifully.
“It looks like you’re scared? “Are you really my brother?”
“Ah, it’s been a while since I last saw you, so I joked around a bit and he said something like that.”
“Is it a joke to hold a squirrel in your hand and blow it up?”
“Oh, this isn’t real. “It’s just a toy.”
As Syria waved his hand, the blood on his hand and on the floor turned into ashes and scattered. The aura melted all the blood and flesh.
“How could I really kill a squirrel?”
An eerie energy blooms from his entire body. The stench of death. It was similar to the scent I felt before I was killed by Derus.
-It’s also arrogant. How dare a human being threaten the King’s possessed body?
Raon did not answer, but gained momentum. As Lars said, that is a threat. A warning to him to back off because he could kill you like this too.
But I didn’t just come here.
“Raon! “Did you destroy this bastard’s family property?”
Burren from the training ground jumped out, and the prosecutors standing guard were also running towards us. I heard Martha swearing from afar for interfering with the training.
“Raon. It was Raon Sieghardt. no wonder.”
Syria’s eyes became gummy like beads covered in ink. Her hair stood on end at the look in her eyes, as if her emotions had been worn away.
“But you really must be mistaken. “As soon as I returned, I received a long-term mission, so I came here to give his younger brother a snack.”
He took out a rectangular box from his pocket and placed it on the floor. Although the shape and pattern were a little different, it was a beaded ice cream box.
Syria’s eyes changed once again. This is the look in her brother’s eyes as he looks at his beloved younger sibling.
“You have a very good friend. Let’s continue to be close friends.”
“I’m sorry my brother was so mischievous. Stay healthy. See you next.”
He waved his hand and disappeared. It’s like being blown by the wind.
“Could it be that that man is Syrian Slyon, the Twelve Stars of the Continent?”
Buren gasped when he saw where Syria was.
“The atmosphere is different. “It’s not the Twelve Stars for nothing.”
“okay. “It was different.”
Raon nodded. I had no idea that the man who was called a genius and a hero was such a crazy person.
I turned around and saw Runaan. Her expression is the same as usual, but her eyes are shaking. She still looked scared.
“let’s go. “I’ll take you to the bar.”
Since Syria said he received a mission, it won’t be in the family.
Runaan nodded slowly and stood up.
“What’s going on?”
Burren approached carrying a box of beaded ice cream.
Raon took the box instead and shook his head.
“Is that so?”
Burren asked no more questions.
“If you need help, let me know. “I’ll help you with anything I can as a fellow practitioner.”
He said that and left the alley first.
‘You’ve really grown up a lot.’
Buren has changed to the point where people who see it feel proud.
-But the king still doesn’t like that guy’s eyes… .
‘Thanks to you, I was able to save Runaan. I don’t know if I really saved it.’
– Risk! Isn’t that girl the king’s ice cream girl? I only told you because I thought I wouldn’t be able to eat ice cream if there was a problem.
‘That’s why I’m thankful.’
-Then, if you ask for that ice cream… .
‘If it weren’t for those words, I almost would have seen you again.’
Raon hit Lars with his palm. He really is a monarch who doesn’t understand the situation.
I took Runaan to where the people of the Slion family were.
Raon walked next to Runan and said nothing.
Someone else’s family. Moreover, I knew full well that trying to offer clumsy consolation without knowing the exact situation would not be helpful.
As Runaan’s steps slowed down, as soon as they stopped, I just quietly walked next to her, matching my steps.
Soon, the Slyon family’s carriage and maids were seen.
Raon watched Runan until she got into the carriage and then handed over the box of ice cream in her hand.
Runaan left after saying in a gloomy voice the words she had previously said in an excited voice.
* * *
When Runaan arrived at the family mansion, Rokan Slion came out to greet her.
“Runan! “You did a good job training.”
I nodded and got off the carriage.
“Have you seen your brother? “He said he would personally give me a gift.”
Runaan took a deep breath and showed the ice cream box in her hand. Her eyes looked as blank as usual.
“It’s your favorite ice cream. “Even while he was busy with missions and training, he always thought of you.”
Lorcan chuckled, muttering that he didn’t have any presents for me.
Runaan bit his molars gently. She thought about revealing the whole truth, but she felt that if she did that, everything she had protected so far would collapse.
“… “I’m going to rest.”
With my words stuck in my throat, I slowly climbed the stairs of the mansion.
“okay. “You must be tired. Get some rest.”
Lorcan motioned for us to come in quickly. Runaan nodded her head and went up to the second floor.
After entering the room, Runaan took a deep breath and sat down on the floor. Biting her lip, she opened the lid of the ice cream carton.
It was my favorite ice cream, but I couldn’t get enough of it. All she could think of was her brother’s face.
‘Here we come again.’ ‘It’s the same.’
Syrian Slion was not like that from the beginning.
After returning from the second mission alive and alone, he changed like a person. Just for me too.
To others he was still a polite and kind genius swordsman, but to himself he had become a monster of obsession whose origins were unknown.
The Ruby he was talking about was a red-eyed squirrel that lived in a nearby tree when he was young.
We became close friends, so I named her Ruby and played with her every day, but one day Ruby scratched the back of my hand.
Because she was pregnant, she only caused a very small injury due to stress, but when Syria saw that, she grabbed Ruby and all the nearby squirrels and blew them up in front of her eyes.
you are mine Don’t get hurt. Just breathe and live.
If I tell my father or mother about this, they will destroy my family. He threatened to save only you and burn everyone to death.
After that day, Runaan kept quiet.
In case someone else might get harmed, I stayed away from people and animals, and I drastically reduced the amount of talk I spoke to.
Living alone like that, feeling the same loneliness. No, I met a boy who seemed more lonely and distressed than me.
At first, I was just curious about how to grow quickly and how to survive with a poor constitution and physical strength.
Just curious. I just approached him because I was a little curious about his growth.
And then I found out.
What kind of person is Raon? How hard he worked and how hard he endured.
Seeing that child change other people’s perspectives through effort, I thought I could change too, and I began to change.
Thanks to Raon and the trainees at Training Center 5, the fear of Syria had been forgotten, but today that fear was revived.
Runaan just watched until all the ice cream in the box melted.
He lowered his head between his knees and muttered in a wet voice.
“I just have to endure it. are you okay.”
I guess I’ll never be able to eat ice cream again.
* * *
When Raon was returning to the dorm after dropping off Runan, Lars suddenly popped out of the bracelet.
-Was he really human?
-The guy who is the ice cream girl’s older brother.
‘Ah, he’s a strange guy.’
Raon nodded. Syria was clearly a man with a friendly and gentle spirit, but he also had the eerieness of facing the darkness.
Especially when threatening, his eyes were as lifeless as dried grass. Just looking at it sends shivers down my spine.
However, one act was good. If she hadn’t seen him explode the squirrel and threaten Runaan, she would have been fooled.
‘He’s crazy like Derus.’
Syria seemed incapable of feeling human emotions. She seemed like a broken person in some way, not by education like herself.
‘But they said it was a long-term mission, so they won’t be coming for a while.’
-As long as he is the ice cream girl’s older brother, problems will continue to arise.
Even if Syria comes to the family a few years later, she and Runan are family, so they have no choice but to continue seeing each other.
No, you may still be watching. What was clearly evident in his dry eyes was obsession.
-Hand over your body. Just kill him and give it back.
-The King repays favors twice and enemies tenfold. That child showed me the new world of beaded ice cream, so I can do that much.
Raon chuckled and waved his hand.
‘Even if you’re serious, that’s not possible.’
‘He inflicted trauma on Runaan. Even if you kill it, it won’t go away. In fact, it may be even more constricting. In cases like this, you have to stand up for yourself. and… .’
Raon tapped the floor with his fingers.
‘I can kill that guy too.’
Runaan is the first person who has cared for me in both my past life and my current life.
Since we have received great help, we can at least kill Syria.
-You are truly crazy. He can’t be defeated even if there are 100 of you. He has already reached the peak.
Lars grimaced and told me not to talk nonsense.
‘It’s definitely strong.’
-If you know that, what nonsense are you talking about?
‘That doesn’t mean a knife won’t go into your throat.’
Raon tapped the scabbard and released a cool energy.
“There is more than one way to kill someone.”
