Sun, Moon, and War - Episode 73
Geum Seok-du suddenly remembered the days when he was under Master Manbak.
His teacher, Master Manbak, was well-versed in all subjects, but he would sometimes bring in teachers to help him learn.
The teachers who came were all white, but they all had different personalities.
However, there was one thing that was the same.
It was just a matter of teaching.
I really didn’t understand.
No, it’s not you doing it, it’s someone else’s doing, so why do you like to meddle so much?
It’s not just meddling. I really want to do it my way.
They say that you have to wake up early in the morning to be a diligent person, that you have to keep your back straight when reading a book, that you have to stand at the head of the table, blah blah blah… … .
But now I understand.
Meddling… … It was very enjoyable.
“Here, ‘Confucius said (子曰)’ is missing. “What are you going to do if you add another page?”
“… … Phew.”
“Oh, and you wrote it wrong here. Isn’t it not Samsubyeon (氵), but Teoruksam (彡)? “I will be there to advise you so that your longevity does not increase.”
“… … “Yes, thank you.”
“If you need it, I’ll even teach you how to write quickly. First, hold the brush a little short… … .”
Dok Go-myeong’s eyes were torn wide open.
“Just shut your mouth! “I can’t concentrate, concentrate!”
“Are you having trouble concentrating? Then, if you meditate for a moment… … .”
“Kyaaaaaaa! Shut up! “Why are you making such a fuss right next to me?”
“Oh, didn’t I tell you? “The Lord asked me to supervise Confucius.”
Dok Go-myeong opened his eyes wide.
“It seems like you are kind to me.”
“I don’t know, do I?”
Dok Go-myeong opened his mouth wide.
Looking at Dok Go-myeong’s shocked face, Geum Seok-du grinned.
“Confucius. If this continues, I will have to use it all night long. “Please start again.”
“you… … And then you regret it?”
“Oh, what a regret. Come on, hurry up. “You should start writing here, not there.”
Geumseokdu had to hide the twitching corner of his mouth as much as possible.
Well, it’s fun.
It was very fun.
For a while, only the sound of Dok Go-myeong playing with his brush continued.
Geum Seok-du, who had been watching for a while, suddenly opened his mouth.
“By the way, where did you go last night?”
“Didn’t you go out in the middle of the night? “What has she been so busy since the first day she came back?”
Dok Go-myeong played with his brush and responded indifferently.
“I came to see that woman.”
In an instant, Geumseokdu’s expression changed.
“no way… … .”
“Yes, the woman I brought out from Bi-dong at that time.”
“Are you sure you said you were a servant of some dark organization?”
Dok Go-myeong smiled.
“What about minions? “I didn’t know much.”
Geumseokdu did not laugh along. No, he couldn’t laugh.
‘Why are you so angry?’
I felt a chill on Dok Go-myeong’s face as he silently used his brush.
He is clearly smiling, but you can see the emotions boiling over behind the laughter.
Anger, no, hatred was an emotion that even words could not describe.
Dok Go-myeong put down his brush loudly.
“The place she belongs to is a place called blood religion. Have you ever heard of it?”
“sorry. Because my knowledge is short… … .”
“There are two places. True blood and new blood. Together, they are a pair of demons. “It seems like my guys are in a sexual alliance or something.”
Dok Go-myeong’s eyes sparkled.
“One of my goals is to completely erase those two places from the world.”
“… … !”
Geumseokdu swallowed dry saliva.
“What kind of people are you, Ssangma-Meng, that you want to do something like that?”
“What kind of people are they?” … .”
Dok Go-myeong chuckled.
“They’re like yellow bugs.”
“Are you talking about a swarm of insects that eat everything they can find?”
It was referring to a swarm of locusts that leave nothing behind in their wake.
For farmers, it is more fearful than drought. To put it mildly, there was even a saying, “Hwangjae (蝗災).”
Ssangma-maeng was like that.
To be exact, the Shinhyeolgyo was like that.
Blood always flowed wherever they passed.
A lot of blood.
“It is Jeonghyeolgyo who has now entered Gangho. “They specialize in undercover, scheming, conspiracies, and behind-the-scenes work.”
“That woman named Kisohwa must also be a member of the Blood Demon Cult.”
“okay. “It seems like I only found out about that fact recently.”
“Point organization… … “What is that?”
Dok Go-myeong nodded.
“For what purpose are you doing such a thing?”
“I guess it’s to make Anhui Wulin a mess. “To break the power of the powerful in future wars.”
Geumseokdu’s expression hardened.
When he heard about the underworld organization the other day, Geum Seok-du thought it was simply a new Black Island sect.
But this is not at that level. He never thought he would hear a story like this.
Dok Go-myeong grinned.
“Why are you scared?”
“Yes, of course.”
Dok Go-myeong blinked.
“In that case, shouldn’t you say no out of pride?”
“What are you looking at me for? “Not long ago, I was just a guy playing with swords in a back alley gambling house.”
Geum Seok-du’s face, which laughed lightly, soon hardened again.
“If there is such an organization, why don’t you tell us right away? “Shouldn’t we be prepared?”
Dok Go-myeong answered in a cold voice.
“Who knows who is a Jeonghyeolgyang?”
“… … !”
Dok Go-myeong looked at Geum Seok-du with a surprised face and sighed briefly.
‘Regardless of the fact that it is a Shinhyeolgyo, I thought that the movement of the Jeonghyeolgyo would still happen in the future.’
I was a little complacent.
To begin with, the water was already up to the chest.
‘Fortunately, I found out in time. Besides, Kisohwa Kiso didn’t know anything at all.’
I gained some valuable information. Depending on how you write, you may be able to create quite a bit of movement.
“Well, I understand.”
“Is that the end?”
“What should I do? If I run away, people in the neighborhood will know that I am Master Manbak’s disciple. Since my nose is already pierced, I have no choice but to follow.”
“… … .”
Dok Go-myeong looked at Geum Seok-du with new eyes.
I thought he would show his conflicted side like a timid guy, but he organized his thoughts too quickly.
Geumseokdu ate his appetite.
“So what should I do next? “You only told us to learn and prepare to save people, but you didn’t tell us exactly what to do, right?”
Dok Go-myeong crossed his arms and nodded.
“First of all, you have to prepare to fulfill one person’s role.”
“I know you don’t know anything about martial arts, but honestly, your level isn’t that great, is it?”
“uh… … What does that mean now… … .”
“I just happened to send a message to a very excellent instructor. Since Jang-sam went earlier, there should be news soon… … .”
“No, what are you talking about earlier?”
The answer to that question was soon known.
Not long after the story ended, Jang Sam led a middle-aged man in front of Geumseokdu.
“Hehe, it’s been a while since I’ve seen you. I kept hearing the news. “You grew up really well, Confucius.”
A man who also has a connection with Dok Go-myeong.
It was Mae Cheon-yang, the three-pointed sword of Muhak Buju.
“It has been so intense. “But why did you come in person when we told you we were going?”
“I came here because I wanted to see Confucius’ face one more time. So, is this you?”
Muhakbuju Mae Cheonyang looked Geumseokdu up and down with a strange smile.
Geumseokdu felt something eerie.
“He has a lot of stamina and endurance, but he is a very tough guy. Please take care of me.”
“Mmm! The muscles aren’t bad either. However, to what extent should we go… … .”
“It’s okay to just roll over and vomit blood.”
“Huh, anyway, how can you do that when you are Confucius’ subordinate?”
“You can just think of it as my replacement and kill it.”
“Instead of Confucius… … ?”
For a moment, Mae Cheon-yang’s eyes lit up.
Geumseokdu felt a chill run down his spine.
“excuse me… … “What are you talking about?”
The voices of the parties were ignored.
“Are you sure it’s okay, Confucius? “This Miss Mae Cheon never relaxes her hands.”
“Oh! Sure! Rather, give more! more!”
“ha ha ha!”
Dok Go-myeong and Mae Cheon-yang continued to laugh.
‘what? ‘What happens now?’
While he was wondering alone, Maecheonyang jumped up from his seat.
“Then, since we’re talking about it, let’s get started right away.”
“Oh, right away?”
“Wouldn’t that be great?”
Mae Cheon-yang turned her head and looked at Geum Seok-du.
“Now, you too, get up.”
“No, it’s our first meeting, so why are you suddenly speaking informally…” … .”
“From now on, all you can say is ‘yes’, ‘yes’ and ‘yes’.”
“Don’t worry. “Basic training may be hard, but other than that, he is a teacher who only requires very reasonable training.”
Mae Cheon-yang grabbed Geum Seok-du’s back.
“What is this! Oh, Confucius? I have given orders to each lord to supervise Confucius… … !”
“Oh, that? “I’m already done with today’s game.”
“… … !”
“In other words, now you are the director and Nabal, and there is no justification for doing so.”
Dok Go-myeong lightly lifted his chin. The corners of his mouth were very gently curved.
“Did you say you regret it or not?”
“… … !”
* * *
The inside of the Dokgo family wall was so large that it could almost be called a village. To put it mildly, it was said that it was no different from a palace.
“There are many buildings worth seeing, but none of them are as old as Sipjeonmugo.”
“… … .”
“In fact, it can be said to be the most important place in the home. The official warrior corps of the main family takes turns guarding the area. “No thief in the world will be able to enter.”
“… … .”
“Thanks to this sister, I am able to enter a place that is difficult to enter without great merit or permission from the majority of the Presbyterian Church. “Thank you, right?”
Dok Go-myeong spoke while looking at Dok Go-yeon who was chatting.
“You’re being very condescending. “It was given to me in exchange for helping me.”
“… … .”
“Well, why don’t you just hand over the access card and leave? “All you have to do is let me in. Why do you keep following me?”
“This is your first time here, so is it really that strange for you as a sister to guide your brother?”
“My sister is a piece of shit, I’ve only seen her face a few times in my life.”
“You speak too arrogantly sometimes.”
“… … .”
Dokgo-yeon’s expression became distorted.
Dok Go-myeong snorted.
‘I guess I heard something from the house owner.’
It’s been strangely clinging to me since a while ago and bothering me.
Dok Go-myeong gave up thinking of arguing any more.
“If you’re going to keep following me, please explain.”
“First of all, there is something like an entrance ball in Japanese literature. “It is an introductory course, and it will contain commentary researched by martial scholars from the main family.”
“… … .”
“In this text, along with the law of mind… … .”
Dok Go-myeong listened to the explanation word for word with one ear and passed it out with the other.
It’s information you already know, but isn’t this better than asking annoying questions or being condescending?
‘The Lord said it was the fifth time.’
I was planning to look for information about Cheon Oekyeong.
Gakju said it wouldn’t be the case, but there’s even a possible connection to Cheonramazon.
“hmm! Arrived. “This is where everything goes.”
Dok Go-myeong turned his eyes and looked ahead.
A large building with an entire military unit standing there came into view.
