Jae Hyuk Han's blood vessels popped out of his neck as he got himself up.
The power of the Aura began taking over Jae Hyuk Han's body.
Min Sung had yet to see the Aura until now due to Jae Hyuk Han's very large sword.
Min Sung opened his eyes wide.
He was slightly in awe.
The ground shook and the wind around Jae Hyuk Han began to spin.
"Come at me," Min Sung said with a light smile.
Jae Hyuk Han's neck, face, and arms all had blood vessels popping out.
His arms were covered with flexed muscles.
Jae Hyuk Han clenched his teeth as he swung his large sword.
An Aura powerful enough to wipe out buildings without a trace came out of Jae Hyuk Han's sword.
Min Sung watched the large Aura charge toward him as he took out his Orichalc.u.m Sword from his item window.
The Orichalc.u.m Sword split Jae Hyuk Han's Aura into two as if it was separating water.
Jae Hyuk Han's Aura disappeared without a trace.
In front of the shocked Jae Hyuk Han's forehead the Orichalc.u.m Sword scattered its powers into the air and stood still.
Jae Hyuk Han's hair and clothes flapped in the wind.
His body felt frozen stiff, keeping him from being able to move.
Min Sung walked toward Jae Hyuk Han, who was standing still and shaking.
He then grabbed his Orichalc.u.m Sword from the air and threw it into his item window.
"What are you staring at?"
Min Sung asked as he swung his fist.
Three teeth flew out of Jae Hyuk Han's mouth.
Once he plopped to the floor, Min Sung kicked him in the gut.
Along with a heavy sound, Jae Hyuk Han's body rolled away on the ground.
Jae Hyuk Han's pupils shook as if he was losing consciousness, and his body shook as a result of the force he just endured.
A shadow appeared on top of Jae Hyuk Han.
It was Min Sung's shadow.
He grabbed Jae Hyuk Han by the throat.
Min Sung then began punching his face over and over.
Min Sung looked down at the robed man, Jae Hyuk Han, who was covered in blood.
Only the sound of wind could be heard at the assembly.
The site was quiet, but the silent message Min Sung was sending them continued to resonate.
Min Sung showed them.
He showed the world hunters and the Samchunkyo hunters who he was and what they were going to do to him.
Not a single person at the assembly could breathe loudly.
That was how powerful Min Sung's presence was.
"I'm curious," Min Sung said while breaking the silence
"Why didn't you kill Ji Yoo Kim? You should've been able to with your powers."
He didn't seem to have the will to answer.
Min Sung kneeled in front of Jae Hyuk Han on the ground and looked him straight in the eyes.
"It's weird. It's not like you to let her live."
Jae Hyuk Han stared back at Min Sung while clenching his teeth.
Min Sung gestured with his chin while looking at Jae Hyuk Han with a cold gaze.
"You probably weighed between me and Samchunkyo."
"If you're not certain, that means there's something you want to protect."
Jae Hyuk Han's one eye responded intensely.
Min Sung kept staring at him with cold eyes and continued,
"Answer me. If you don't, I'll do whatever it takes to find what you're trying to protect and remove it."
In response, fear appeared in Jae Hyuk Han's eye for the first time since he met him.
His lips dried up, and his eyes darkened with fear.
Fear was spreading quickly throughout his eyes.
And it wasn't fear of him.
He was anxious about something else.
"Where's the Samchunkyo leader?"
Min Sung got straight to the point.
Jae Hyuk Han was in a position where he had to choose between Samchunkyo and Min Sung Kang.
Jae Hyuk Han's eyes began to wander for the first time ever.
A royal palace located behind Taehwajeon.
Inside the building for resting before an event or receiving regular briefings, the leader of Samchunkyo remained seated while wearing a full robe.
The leader looked down at the man in front of him, who was bowing while reporting what was happening at the assembly and stroked his beard.
Whenever he thought, he stroked his beard.
"So you're telling me all 7 soldiers and Jae Hyuk Han have been attacked?"
"I deserve to die," the man said while trembling on the ground.
"I thought they were enough. I guess the world hunters grew since I last saw them. I can't believe a man like that appeared."
The leader of Samchunkyo laughed.
"What should I do?"
The man asked.
The leader of Samchunkyo laughed again.
"Just wait and see I'm excited to find out what that Min Sung Kang is all about."
The leader looked into the distance and laughed hard.
The man glanced up and then immediately put his forehead back on the ground into a bow.
Min Sung quietly watched as Jae Hyuk Han worked through his dilemma.
After some time.
His eyes showed that he came to a decision.
Jae Hyuk Han opened his dry lips.
"Kill me," Jae Hyuk Han said while looking into space.
He appeared to have given up.
"Let me just ask you one thing. What are you trying to protect?"
Min Sung asked.
Jae Hyuk Han's eye shook once more.
His face showed a pained expression.
Before Jae Hyuk Han said anything, Min Sung beat him to it.
"You must only choose one. The leader of Samchunkyo or me decide."
Jae Hyuk Han's eye was filled with chaos.
"Answer me," Min Sung growled.
"My my little brother."
"Kim Min Ho."
Jae Hyuk Han answered with a pained look on his face.
His brother's name was Kim Min Ho.
Kim Min Ho.
A Korean name.
That meant that he even abandoned his home country in order to save his little brother, who was held hostage by Samchunkyo.
It could be clearly seen that he did horrible things just to save his only brother.
Min Sung nodded at Jae Hyuk Han.
"Any last words before you die?"
Jae Hyuk Han held back his tears with all his might.
"Forget everything Forget everything," Jae Hyuk Han said.
Min Sung's eyes sunk low.
Min Sung took out his Orichalc.u.m Sword from his item window and struck Jae Hyuk Han's neck.
He then looked over at the 6 Samchunkyo hunters.
They flinched in response.
Min Sung's cold eyes scanned the Samchunkyo hunters.
"Where is the leader of Samchunkyo?"
Min Sung asked while radiating in magic.
The 6 Samchunkyo hunters glanced at each other and gulped.
Min Sung Kang swung his Orichalc.u.m Sword.
The 3 Samchunkyo hunters at the front were sliced like a paper.
The 3 Samchunkyo hunters died before the blink of an eye.
The remaining Samchunkyo hunters began breathing heavily.
It could be seen in their faces that they knew their end was near.
Min Sung slowly walked toward the 3 Samchunkyo hunters.
They stopped breathing and opened their eyes wide.
"Let me ask again. Where's the leader of Samchunkyo?"
"I-I'll tell you."
"I'll tell you!"
"I'll tell you!"
The 3 hunters all spoke at the same time.
Min Sung stabbed the Samchunkyo hunter standing in the middle right through his neck.
Min Sung then lowered the Orichalc.u.m Sword, which was still in his neck.
The Samchunkyo hunter fell while bleeding out.
"Don't play any games and tell me where he is," Min Sung said as he brushed off his bloody sword.
The 2 remaining Samchunkyo hunters trembled.
While one of the 2 hunters began shaking his lips, Min Sung swung his Orichalc.u.m Sword without any hesitation.
The Samchunkyo hunter in the back got ripped to shreds by Min Sung's magic power.
"H-Ho Nam Sung!"
The last remaining Samchunkyo hunter screamed with his eyes popping out of his socket.
Min Sung looked at him and then called Ho Sung Lee over.
"Bring the car."
" Yes, Sir," Ho Sung Lee answered with a gulp.
The world hunters took one of the sedans to the Warp Gate.
Min Sung and Bowl rode in the back seat while the last remaining Samchunkyo hunter was trembling in the passenger seat.
Ho Sung Lee was the driver.
"Don't bother contemplating if you're going to die in the leader's hands or mine," Min Sung said.
The last Samchunkyo hunter flinched.
Min Sung continued,
"You'll live as long as you don't try anything smart. But if you do and try to make things complicated with the leader of Samchunkyo"
Min Sung's voice grew dark.
"You won't just die. You'll regret it even after you die. I promise you that."
Tremble, tremble, tremble!
The Samchunkyo hunter shook as if he was convulsing.
Bowl erased the memory of Ssol, who was crying silently.
He then smiled and looked around him.
At that moment, the sedan arrived at the Warp Gate.
Ho Sung Lee got off first, and the Sanchunkyo hunter got out of the passenger seat as if he was being sentenced to death.
Min Sung got out of the car and led the way.
"I'm going to wash up. Keep an eye out," Min Sung instructed.
Ho Sung Lee bowed and made sure not to tick off Min Sung while he was in a sensitive mood.
Bowl and Ssol followed Min Sung.
He threw off his bloody clothes and took a shower.
He washed himself of the bloody smell and put on a fresh set of clothes.
After checking himself out in the mirror, he left the VIP room located within the Warp Gate building.
While going downstairs in the elevator, Min Sung's eyes were fixed on a poster that was on the wall.
