The Returner's Martial Arts are Too Strong - Chapter 2
Seeing the corpse maintaining the barrier, I could roughly guess what happened here.
The woman who created the barrier must have spent her life to create a dome-shaped barrier that would allow everyone to stay safe.
The problem is that the people who ended up living within the barrier were not only good people.
‘They probably killed each other because of limited food.’
The barrier that unfolded here was not a complex structure.
Therefore, if there was at least some knowledge about the barrier, anyone would have been able to enter and exit freely.
However, the survivors, who did not have the confidence to go out and get food, chose to stay in this dome, and as a result, they ran out of food and ended up fighting among themselves.
The last winner also had severe wounds and could not hold out for long, or else he may have starved to death.
“… … ”
I saw the corpse of a woman who sacrificed herself for these people.
A woman whose condition is so clean that it’s hard to believe she’s dead.
I know her.
The first person with the ability to take revenge and was called the hope of humanity, which means peace.
Although it is said to be the hope of humanity, it is only called that in Korea.
In any case, she was famous for being a so-called magic swordsman, having awakened both magic and auror abilities.
In addition to her awakened Auror abilities, she was also famous for her physical appearance, but what was important was that she was a famous person who showed an aspect of self-sacrifice.
“… “You should have made some sacrifices.”
If, instead of risking her life to spread a barrier, she had spread a barrier of just the right size and become everyone’s spiritual leader… Wouldn’t the people who lived here have lived longer?
It’s just a what if.
With that in mind, I stood in front of her.
And I lit a fire with my own hands.
I didn’t use magic.
‘Samadhi Evolution (Three Stars True Fire)’
Samādhi is the ability to penetrate into essence.
Therefore, Samadhi Evolution, which penetrates and burns the essence, burned the essence of Serenity.
The sacrifice she made to open this barrier was burned.
In the sense that you should not be entangled in any more obligations and go to heaven.
It was a kind of funeral.
… It’s a little strange that they told him to go to heaven and held a Buddhist or Taoist funeral, but whatever.
‘Because I can’t make a coffin, and I can’t lay flowers.’
Serenity’s corpse, burned by the samadhi evolution I created, disappeared without even leaving behind ashes.
But I did not reap the evolution of samadhi.
Instead, they decided to burn the numerous corpses piled up around them.
They killed each other to save their lives, but they also have the right to be judged in heaven.
With that in mind, I looked at the burning corpses, meditated for a moment, and then sat down in a suitable place.
“… ha… .”
Actually, this place was my last hope.
A barrier that has recently reached a new level and has expanded senses.
Traces of survivors.
Therefore, I thought I would be able to meet survivors here.
But what are the results?
All I encountered were traces left by those who had already died.
“… The place where my senses reach is all over Korea… North Korea, and parts of China and Japan… .”
To my senses, I no longer felt like a survivor.
All I can feel is the presence of countless monsters that have destroyed the Earth.
I can only feel the energy of the black fog that gave birth to those monsters.
“… … ”
There may be survivors beyond my senses, but I have to cross the ocean to find them.
But to do that… I am so exhausted.
Still, I couldn’t give up.
So, I decided to sit cross-legged and meditate.
As a living person. I couldn’t give up looking for someone who might still be alive.
In the process, I might have to not only go to another country, but even go to another continent, and even then I might not be able to achieve my goal, but I couldn’t give up.
That’s why I decided to meditate and straighten my tired mind.
When I finished meditating, my senses caught the movement of monsters.
‘… About 10km radius… .’
I felt that all the monsters inside started to move at once.
The destination is… .
‘Is it here?’
After confirming that, I raised my head and looked at the sky.
The dome-shaped barrier that had protected this place until a moment ago has already disappeared.
It is natural that the body of Serenity, the core of the barrier, has disappeared.
Perhaps the monsters realized that the barrier was gone and flocked to attack the people inside it.
These are people who have not only become corpses but whose corpses have all been burned by me.
“… “It just worked out well.”
I feel bad, should I at least relax my body?
If we slaughter these damn monsters, things will get a little better.
Thinking like that, I took out the knife I had put in my bag earlier.
Although it was an old sword, it vibrated lightly as it was imbued with the blood of countless monsters and was close to a magic sword.
The Demon Sword also noticed the presence of monsters and became excited.
I took a stance holding the sword like that.
And swung it horizontally.
So, it was a light horizontal cut.
But what happened due to that crosscut was by no means light.
Because the monsters that were far away from my location were cut down all at once.
My sword protested against me.
He asked me to feed him the blood of monsters.
I thought, ignoring the sword’s protests.
‘… ‘You’re not afraid.’
The previous attack instantly turned thousands of monsters into corpses, but other monsters are running after them, stepping on their corpses.
‘That’s how much magic was inside the barrier… So, I guess I’m coveting Serenity’s magic power.’
How on earth would she be able to overcome the fear of death if she wanted to taint her magical power? .
With that in mind, I took my stance.
With the intention of killing them all.
I cut down all the monsters that came and saw my body covered in blood.
Of course it’s not my blood.
It was all monster blood.
‘There’s a lot of blood flowing.’
As the number of monsters cut by my sword was numerous, the amount of blood that flowed from them was not small.
No, it was more than a small amount, it was enough to form a river.
I had no choice but to use my strength from the middle and middle battles to use magic.
The magic I embodied in the form called a mantra or mantra.
Of course, real wizards do not use magic in this way; they simply modified the existing magic into a format that suited me as a warrior, not a wizard.
As a result, it has deteriorated to the point that it should be called witchcraft rather than magic, but what can I say?
If you meet someone in this state, you may be criticized for being a witchcraft or shunned for having an affair, but what can you say?
As long as it’s comfortable, that’s enough.
That’s how I turned all the monsters’ blood on me into clean water.
Although burning it with Samadhi Evolution is more reliable because it can also remove corpses, it was unpleasant to burn a dirty monster with the Samadhi Evolution that was used at the funeral a while ago, so I didn’t do that.
Anyway, the blood of the monsters on my body turned into water, so my body is wet with water.
Of course I tried to open my mouth to dry this water… .
Just before the word dry (乾燥) was completed, I quickly lowered my head.
As I lowered my head, something sharp swept past where my head was.
I immediately turned around, brandishing the knife that was still covered in blood.
My knife was lightly blocked by something, and I was able to identify what was blocking my knife.
It was judged to be a human because it walked on two legs and was holding something similar to a sword in its hand, but it was not a human.
It’s just a monster that walks on two legs and knows how to use tools.
the problem is… .
The tool the monster was holding and the power it had were unusual.
Even though the sword the monster was holding was not at my full strength, it was strong enough to block the sword I swung to cut the opponent, and the monster itself was strong enough to not even be able to withstand my physical strength, but rather blow me away with its force.
After taking a stance in the air, I crashed into the wall and quietly observed the monster.
“What is that…?” .”
Is this a new species?
Why does a new species suddenly appear? .
The moment I thought about it… .
I was able to recognize that its body was directly aimed at me.
However, I could only really recognize it.
I quickly lifted the knife and tried to bring it to the guy’s body, but the guy seemed to be able to completely control his speed and easily dodged it and punched me in the face.
I couldn’t even scream and flew away.
The martial arts I was making included external attacks, so I was able to withstand his fists, but if it hadn’t been for that, my head would have said goodbye to my body.
Thinking about that, I opened my eyes wide.
I observed its movements closely.
This guy wasn’t just good at strength.
As much as I could see, the guy’s movements were really efficient movements.
It was also more efficient than I could do.
This means that monsters with low intelligence have greater skills than me.
At the same time as realizing this.
I felt as if the gears that make up humanity had stopped.
It felt like the gears that made up me began to fall apart, and then new gears came in to fill me.
“… hahahahahahahaha… !”
When I felt that, I felt joy and despair at the same time.
The joy of knowing that the martial arts skills I have been working on are finally being completed thanks to the fight against the strong.
And the despair of not being able to defeat that guy even if martial arts is perfected like this.
‘I am… ‘What on earth have you been living like this for?’
The thing that flew towards me while I was flying in the air ripped off both of my arms.
‘Have I lived to die in vain like this?’
Then he ripped off my legs and prevented me from doing anything.
‘Like this… Is everything coming to an end?’
The guy who finally subdued me pierced my heart with his sword to finish me off completely.
At the same time, my martial arts skills were completed and my vision seemed to darken.

“… Ugh… !”
After my heart was pierced by an unknown monster and my martial arts skills were completed… A system message with unknown meaning passed by.
Immediately after that, I was crying for some reason.
“congratulations. “He is a healthy son.”
“thanks… do… thanks… do.”
My consciousness was immersed in darkness as I listened to those voices.
