Sun, Moon, and War - Episode 1
There was a man.
He is the leader of the Ssangma League, a cult that endangers people’s livelihoods, and the leader of the Shinhyeolgyo cult, which has the strange idea of staining the world with blood.
Hyukwisang, blood demon.
He started a war in the central Plains and claimed the lives of many people, both civilians and civilians.
The world is full of hypocrisy and sin. Only purification through blood can solve this problem.
The place Hyeok Wi-sang passed through was just filled with blood and death.
Said the world.
It couldn’t be that the person who caused such a cruel bloody act was a human, he must have been a demon who descended into the human world.
“ … … You like the devil. “You’re just a crazy bastard.”
The decapitated body fell to the floor.
That was the end of Blood Demon Hyeokwisang.
Whether it was a demon or a human, it seemed like they would both die if their hair was cut.
“I am finally free. Phew… … .”
Dok Go-hyeon (獨孤玄) flopped down on a pile of rocks.
As I exhaled the breath I was holding, my dark gaze gradually became brighter and the surrounding scenery began to appear.
Red. And it’s black.
From end to end of the scene as far as the eye can see, everything is painted in red and black.
Crumbling and burning palaces, corpses scattered everywhere, countless arrows and weapons stuck in the ground, Ashes and blood embroidered on them.
The color of the battlefield has always been like this.
Dok Go-hyeon looks at the ruins and says a word.
“Wake up slowly, you guys.”
No answer was heard.
That’s natural. Because there are only corpses in the ruins.
Failed! – Fail!
A long Crow sounded from somewhere.
“Are they all dead…? … .”
Doc Go-hyeon looked at the pile of corpses and muttered in a low voice.
“ … … Did you know that you were going to say that? “This bastard is going to kill me!”
Dok Go-hyeon’s eyes lit up as he grabbed the hilt of his sword.
“Aaah! “You are awake!”
“Wake up! “Don’t swing the knife!”
Among the piles of corpses, people covered in blood began to jump to their feet.
“Hi! Captain, wake up that bastard before he goes crazy! “It looks like it’s over!”
“Oh my god, I’m dying!”
The battlefield, once filled with silence, suddenly became noisy.
The man was so badly injured that his body could be seen moving.
They were none other than the Chammadae (斬魔隊), a secret invading force directly under the murim rulers.
“These bastards are pretending to be dead while their leader is between life and death?”
Dok Go-hyeon gritted his teeth and looked at Team member Yam.
The members of the yam Army shouted angrily.
“him! “What do you think we’re playing for?”
“I got some stab wounds, not the captain!”
“I have plunged into the Three Kingdoms!”
“here! Can’t you see this? “I almost got punctured and my internal organs fell out!”
Dok Go-hyeon thrust the tip of his sword into the ground and smiled.
“Now that all this is over, you mean we’re going to compete?”
Members of the yam Army trembled.
“Calm Down, Captain. Let’s talk about the knife first. “We are the wounded!”
“Then, it’s not me?”
Like I said, Dok Go-hyeon is in the worst condition among them.
Several arrows were stuck in his back, and even as he chatted, blood flowed from his torn stomach.
“Well, more than that! What a bastard! “Is the ghost really dead?”
“Oh my god! that’s right. “Where is the ghost-eyed?”
The ubi crew who were making a fuss became nervous and swallowed their dry saliva.
“The Bastards retaliated…” … . All right, I’ll fool you just once.”
Dok Go-hyeon grinned and pointed at his feet with his chin.
“If you don’t believe me, see for yourself.”
The severed head rolled on the dirt floor.
Pale skin with all the blood drained, and eyes as red as blood.
It was the head of Hyeokwisang, the blood demon.
“Really… …” you really did it!”
“I thought the captain was going to hit the bastard!”
“Thank you for your hard work, captain.”
“Thank you for your hard work!”
Each member of the ubi team smiled brightly and shouted.
Hard work, hard work… … .
Yeah, I’m having trouble missing something.
Even after the fight was over, my limbs still couldn’t move properly. My vision was blurred due to heavy blood loss.
Still, I won.
He and the yam pole hit Shinhyeol’s worshipper’s neck.
“It’s over! it’s over!”
“Whoa… …” it’s finally over.”
“What will you do first when you return?”
“Let’s start with a drink! Jang Cheol and you?”
“I’m going back to the monastery. “I can finally accept forgiveness.”
The members of Team Yam, who were gathered in groups of two and three, started talking about the future with bright expressions.
“I’m sorry… …” Will I be able to return to my family?”
“I plan to open a faction and become a faction leader! Ha ha ha! Whoever thinks, follow me! “I’ll give you at least an elder!”
“What fractions are our subjects? Even if I live like a dead mouse, it’s not enough. Isn’t that right, Captain?”
“… … .”
Dok Go-hyeon looked around at Team Member Yam in silence.
This is just a small hope compared to the achievements achieved. At least my biggest dream is to open a sect.
That’s worth it. This is because the Chammadae are units in which no one has a prominent status.
An excommunicated disciple of a sect, an adopted son from a prominent family who was raised as a consumable, a criminal who committed a crime, a hated slave from a foreign region… … .
These lowly men were sent into battle with the promise of rewards.
Yamdae is a small group united by strange stories.
“What can not be done? An investigation into factionalism? If you want to do it, you can do it. “If you have something to do, try to make something big.”
Wasn’t life at its lowest point a while ago?
Starting today, Chammadae is the hero who ended the war by beheading the Blood Demon.
“Ha ha! Look! “That’s what the captain said!”
Just then, someone came from behind and sat down beside Dok Go-hyeon.
“What will you do first when you return?”
It was a beautiful sound that was not suitable for the battlefield.
A woman with a sword broken in two roughly covered her shoulders.
It was none other than Namgung Sohwa, one of the four vice commanders.
“If you go to Lian, won’t you be able to hold an important position?”
“Come to think of it, last time you said that the old man in the group would also give you a seat.”
As Namgung Sohwa spoke, nearby Yam corps members responded with excited expressions.
“impossible… … “will you go back to your family?”
Hearing that cautious question, the eyes of the rest of the Chamma team members focused on Dok Go-hyeon.
“It’s a family.”
Dok Go-hyeon rudely wiped the blood from his face and muttered softly.
Just like the Charm Corps members who have their own stories, Dok Go-hyeon also does the same.
A single family.
A place that accepted him, that lived like a wild man as collateral, and at the same time, a place that brought him to this cursed battlefield.
Dok Go-hyeon thinks about the name, which he had forgotten for a long time, then laughs out loud.
“What are you going to do with it?”
“If we have nowhere to go, let’s go together.”
“Captain, who would accept that damn personality if not me?”
Namgung Sohwa said as he pulled out his hair wet with sweat and blood.
That was it.
“Oh! “If the captain and manager leave, Jang Cheol must follow!”
“shut up! “Jang Cheol, go back to the monastery!”
Namgung Sohwa shouted.
“What. “Where Are you going?”
“They say the captain follows the manager?”
Then we should go too!
“What are you?”
“What! Captain will make taesangmunju yammun! Manager Namgung is a missed person!”
“No, Did you just find the clan name?”
Doc Go-hyeon narrowed his eyes as he saw Team Yam’s members chatting again.
I didn’t even think about the fact that they were still in the middle of enemy territory… …
No more than that.
“Noisy! You bastard with no loyalty! “Where Are you going?”
“loyalty? “Why are you showing loyalty now?”
“We must first think of making a cenotaph or a grave for the fallen in the center! “Are these kids just thinking about Sunji?”
Hearing Dok Go-hyeon’s screams, Not only Namgung So-hwa but also team member Yam cleared their throat.
“Well, that’s natural.”
“Yes that’s right! “Of course I’m thinking about it!”
“Hmm! I didn’t even say anything because it was obvious! What do you think of us… … .”
Dok Go-hyeon clicked his tongue and shook his head.
“Well, I took these people with me… … .”
Doo doo doo doo!
Just then, the sound of a horseshoe suddenly echoed from far away on the horizon.
The members of the yam Army, who were laughing and chatting, naturally formed a formation, picking up their weapons as if they had never done so before.
However, Dok Go-hyeon remains smiling and relaxed.
“For some reason, you came on time.”
Hearing those words, the members of Yamdae opened their eyes wide and looked in the direction where they heard the sound of the Horseshoe.
Chest warrior galloping on horseback.
The word Maeng (盟) is clearly engraved there.
“Hi! Here we go! Over Here!”
“Ha, you’re still alive. “Sometimes I’m glad to see that saenim.”
The expressions of the members of the Yam Army turned bright red.
It was a reinforcement group. As soon as the Battle of Chammadae ended, rescue units that were supposed to make way for them to retreat arrived.
Soon the horse stopped, and a middle-aged man in front of the group jumped off his horse.
Dok Go-hyeon looked at him and frowned.
A middle-aged man with a gentle expression, dressed in a long blue-and-white robe.
Mr. Murim, Baek Mu-heun, come alone.
“But the sun rises in the West. “Why did you come here in person?”
“You are alive, you.”
“That one too.”
Baek Mu-heun is also in turmoil because he went through a difficult path.
Baek Moo-heun approached Doc Go-hyeon and said.
“Did you really do it?”
Doc Go-hyeon smiled slyly at the incredulous question.
“Can’t you see?”
“What about Hyeok Wisang?”
“There’s a head rolling over there, so why don’t you look for it?”
“What about the eight great protectors and six heads?”
“Like you said, most of them are gone. “Thanks to you, I can do it.”
“Hah, anyway… … “I couldn’t believe it.”
Baek Mu-heun admires with a languid face.
Well, it’s hard to believe it. Because today is the end of a long war with the Ssangma Alliance.
And it was also done by Yamdae who came from below.
“Are you okay?”
“As you can see.”
It was a serious injury. In these conditions, even walking a few steps is difficult.
But it’s alive.
All I have to do is stay alive. A wound like this will heal quickly after a few days of rest.
“Well… … .”
Baek Mu-heun sighed.
Doc Go-hyeon’s eyes twitched at that strange expression.
“To be honest, I didn’t think I would get this far.”
“What are you suddenly talking about?”
“You work hard. And I’m really sorry.”
At that moment, a dazzling sword light appeared from Baek Mu-heun’s sheath.
Doc Go-hyeon opened his eyes wide.
I instinctively took a step back, but it was too late due to my injury.
Blood was pouring from Dok Go-hyeon’s torn chest.
That was the beginning.
All of a sudden!
Blood splattered everywhere. The soldiers who came with Baek Mu-heun began slaughtering members of the Yam Army.
Namgung Sohwado, other managers, Deungpyeongdo, Geumseokdudo, Jang Cheoldo… … All of Yamdae’s victims were bleeding.
Dok Go-hyeon’s eyes were red.
“What is this…?” … !”
Baek Mu-heun smiled bitterly and shook his head.
“You did well, but you did very well.”
“From the beginning, your role was to take Hyukwisang’s power. “We have to finish it.”
Hearing those words, Dok Go-hyeon felt his heart grow cold.
There was no way the ridiculous order to attack the main Corps alone was given, and Hyeok Wisang greeted them as if he had been waiting for them… … .
“Anyway, it’s over… … !”
“It’s over. it’s over. But… … “please think about what happened after that.”
Baek Mu-heun muttered bitterly.
“I thought… …” shouldn’t a unit like the ubi Battalion hit the enemy commander in the head?”
“… … !”
Hearing those words, Dok Go-hyeon’s eyes widened like they were torn apart.
Baek Mu-heun cleans the blood on his sword and approaches Doc Go-hyeon.
“Don’t worry about the future. I will pay generously for your life and your life. The families of the members will be fine, and their honor will be guarded. “You will be honored as a hero.”
“Nonsense to the end… … .”
Doc Go-hyeon gritted his teeth.
Is there a problem? I’ll clean it up so it doesn’t become a problem.
Even if the man really intends to keep his promise, in the end, the name Chammadae will belong to a famous clan and later become an exponent of a prestigious family.
Isn’t it always like this?
These are people who are not averse to taking something from death if they can.
“I have no personal feelings. Let’s go in peace.”
Baek Mu-heun spoke calmly and swung his sword again.
A brief moment.
Dok Go-hyeon’s drooping eyes glowed blue.
A terrifying voice that pierced through the flesh and blood sounded.
It was the sound of Baek Mu-heun’s sword piercing Dok Go-hyeon’s body, and also the sound of Dok Go-hyeon’s sword piercing Baek Mu-heun’s heart.
“Uh! Cough… … !”
Baek Mu-heun coughed up blood and looked at Doc Go-hyeon with trembling eyes.
Dok Go-hyeon twisted the corner of his bloodied mouth and pulled out his sword.
“ … … I have a personal feeling, asshole.”
Baek Mu-heun fainted with his eyes wide open.
Dok Go-hyeon also loses all his strength and falls to the floor, releasing his sword.
The sky that caught my attention was so cloudy that it seemed that it would rain at any moment.
This is what the sky looks like at the last moment.
‘Okay … … maybe I knew it would be like this.’
Vision gradually narrows.
Meanwhile, Doc Go-hyeon looks up at the sky and laughs.
Didn’t the world originally look like this?
For those who were born with many things in the first place, the bottom people like them and Yamdae were nothing more than hunting dogs that could be eaten when their usefulness was up.
‘But … …’ you didn’t know that dog was going to take you to see Mr. Murim, did you, bastard?’
Someone who killed the blood demon and King Murim on the same day.
Is there a hunting dog in the long history of powerhouses who left such a brilliant feat?
My body is heavy. I can’t hear much else.
Yam Master Dok Go-hyeon slowly closed his eyes.
