Chapter 205: Greenwich Observatory (4)
Kim Yong-woo didn’t know how this had happened.
His master, hero and maybe saviour. No, it was highly likely that the person called Saviour was Randalph Brigsiel. At least, Kim Yong-woo thought so.
He was covering his face for some reason. He didn’t care about his achievements which was why he didn’t reveal himself.
However, now someone was trying to shit on his great achievements. Framing him and starting a witch hunt. Kim Yong-woo couldn’t stand still.
If he really was a demon then it didn’t matter to Kim Yong-woo. If it wasn’t for him, Korea would have ended. It wouldn’t have been possible for Kim Yong-woo to keep his place as leader of Heaven’s Will and he would have probably already been buried in the ground.
It was because Kim Yong-woo lacked power compared to his authority. There were hyenas in every direction aiming for his position.
However, Heaven’s Will was everything to Kim Yong-woo. Kim Yong-woo’s life started to change after he became an Awakened and made Heaven’s Will. He hadn’t even studied properly and had no special skills, yet he somehow became the man with the best guild in Korea.
And Randalph Brigsiel was the one who helped him with the reversal. Now that name was being ruined.
Even if it was the distant past, Kim Yong-woo knew better than anybody what faith was. Having faith was the only way for someone to live in this confusing world.
“Even if he is the one who really showed up, it was just to warn humanity, not threaten them.”
“Then you admit that he is a demon?”
The leader of the Templar Knights stared at Kim Yong-woo with cold, machine-like eyes. They were definitely creepy but he didn’t feel threatened.
“No! What demon would be concerned about humans? The name Randalph Brigsiel…in Korea, it literally means hero! However, you are firm in the belief that he is a grand duke. His actions might not be understandable, but you shouldn’t judge his actions without seeing the results!”
“No human can escape my skill. Yet…there are many scenes in your past that I can’t see.”
Kim Yong-woo only sneered after hearing that his past was read.
“He was present from the beginning. It was like the heavens had sent him to me to solve my trials. He was stronger than anyone else yet didn’t come forward. It was like he was preparing for something…I even had the feeling that he knew the future. And the preparations he made started to bloom one by one.”
“That’s right. He knows the future! Reading the past? That is nothing. He is a messenger sent by the heavens to prepare for the future!”
He was agitated.
But Kim Yong-woo’s words were 100% projection.
Kim Yong-woo had been thinking about a man called Randalph Brigsiel.
That’s why he followed Randalph Brigsiel. He had often disappeared, but he always appeared at the necessary moment.
He had done a background check once. But there was nothing.
He had complete confidence and was reliable. There was no other towering presence like that on Earth. Kim Yong-woo didn’t think he was a demon or creature, but that was a thing of the past. Now he didn’t care about that at all.
“He might be a demon favourable towards humans.”
Kim Yong-woo clicked his tongue at the words of the leader of the Templar Knights.
“A demon helping humans? No, do you know anything about demons? Several demons devastated Korea. One day they dragged their creatures and attacked. They locked humans in cages. Our bodies were used like toys and experimented with. Watching those days of humiliation…the Korean warriors know more about demons than anyone else in the world. For demons, humans are just to be mocked.”
Kim Yong-woo knew this fact very well. As the leader of the most powerful guild, Kim Yong-woo had a lot of experience with demons.
He was certain that Randalph Brigsiel wasn’t a demon. A demon would absolutely never help humans.
And his confidence convinced some of the others.
The leader of the Templar Knights couldn’t answer. Queen Mary was watching with great interest. Kim Yong-woo had placed a decisive wedge.
“Anyway, we’ve received a warning. Heaven’s Will will actively participate in this mission.”
A raid was organized.
The leaders of each country and major groups had sent their strongest Awakened to the United Kingdom.
In addition, the United States used the ‘cobalt’ that they had secretly manufactured. Cobalt maximized radiation leaks in nuclear bombs so it was a prohibited material due to the dangers. There were no reports about it being developed due to it being lethal to humanity, but the United States had done it in secret.
Of course, the cobalt weapon was only supposed to be used as a last resort. As the fate of humanity started being at risk, the scientists studied the Awakened and created something beyond imagination.
“I don’t know if humanity will self-destruct.”
Kim Yong-woo sighed after finding out some parts of the operation.
Although Heaven’s Will dispatched 20 people for the operation, he belatedly felt regret.
“Guild Master, did you see?”
Yoo Eun-hye asked mischievously.
“Did I see what?”
“The Awakened that were gathered. I am curious.”
Kim Yong-woo shrugged.
“They are not stronger than you. If you are in danger then Edward will protect you, so why should I care?”
Yoo Eun-hye laughed.
It was like he said.
A large space underground. There were more than 1,000 Awakened gathered and they were the powerhouses of each country or guild.
But Yoo Eun-hye and Edward weren’t inferior to them. No…they were one or two stages stronger. All the other Awakened from Korea also had high levels. It was the reason Kim Yong-woo wasn’t worried.
“Anyway, you are like a sly fox.”
“Shut up. Spend the next three days becoming familiar with the team. It is like raising a chicken from an egg. Make it so that they won’t throw your body away if you are dying.”
“Why is Guild Master acting like this?”
“I am busy.”
Kim Yong-woo used a thick book to slap Yoo Eun-hye’s cheeks lightly. He was the operation’s commander so there were many things to know. It would take three weeks to memorize all of this, let alone three days.
Yoo Eun-hye pouted.
“Edward. This uncle is no fun. Will you play with Noona?”
Edward Windsor. The young man standing behind Yoo Eun-hye couldn’t take his eyes off her.
“That’s good. What should we play?”
“Well…do you know how to break a seal?”
Kim Yong-woo shouted as he heard those words.
“Hey! What are you going to do?”
“Do you know what is more important than comradeship, Guild Master? It is the pecking order, pecking order. If I don’t properly establish the pecking order then the dog might bite the owner in an emergency~”
Kim Yong-woo shook his head. It was true that there could be incidents in times of trouble.
Not long ago, people used an excuse to try something against the ‘Saviour’s children.’ Kim Yong-woo had gone to Yoo Eun-hye, who directly dealt out punishment.
“Anyway, if I don’t move then won’t other candidates start taking action? Didn’t Girin-nim set this operation as the ‘decisive battle.’ Depending on the performance, the king will be decided. The timing is good.”
The decisive battle for the king was supposed to have the seven candidates fight fiercely against each other. However, the timing made that impossible. Instead, the girin decided that the one with the highest achievements in this operation would get the position.
All seven candidates agreed.
Yoo Eun-hye’s thoughts didn’t stop there.
She was obsessed with being the ‘king’ so that she could become stronger…
So he said.
“Quietly and neatly. And make it clear. Do you understand what I am saying?”
“I will come back as the best. At that time, Guild Master should be calling me Boss.”
Yoo Eun-hye laughed and left.
At that time…
I was near the dungeon in China.
I looked at the lush mountains opposite the dungeon.
“Tashmal, where is Hash?”
Tashmal spoke with a complicated expression.
“It isn’t a good idea to do this right now. The other angels have just started to acknowledge him.”
Of all the angels currently on Earth, Hash had the highest rank. The angels moved under a tricky hierarchy so Hash was given the best treatment. He might not be that old, but luckily he managed to infiltrate the sacred zone and deceived the angels.
It was a very important time.
But I firmly shook my head.
“This will be the true beginning of everything. There is no way the angels can miss this stage. Tashmal, bring Hash to me straight away.”
A sacred zone. A place that would cause even my skin to tingle. Demons and creatures wouldn’t dare step foot in there.
However, Tashmal was a fallen angel and had considerable resistance to the divine power.
She moved and disappeared from my sight.
‘I need to use all the cards I have. The grand dukes will bring a significant amount of creatures…I wonder who will be the strongest.’
I folded my arms and laughed coldly.
