Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
Moonkwnag burst out in a rage.
“How dare you! You dare to disrespect the Jong household!”
Taesan spoke coolly.
“I spoke to you, not the Jong household. Not that the Jong household isn’t a loser.”
Moonkwang laughed as he was too speechless.
“Ha. Why are you so confident? Do you believe that the golden wall clan or the Yeon household will come to save you?”
“Don’t think they need to?”
Moonkwang’s face turned rigid. But he attempted to regain his composure.
“Nobody is coming to save you. Your guards outside will die miserably, the golden wall merchants will not be able to act up for a while due to this incident. And the Yeon residence will never hear of this.”
“You sure like to talk a lot.”
“But first you need to be beaten up until you soil yourself in fear. I was going to take this easy but it seems like it won’t do.”
At those words, Taesan’s eyes started to glisten.
“Ah, about that, where did you leave the guy who soiled himself? Did you not bring him with you? Were you worried he might soil himself again?”
Taesan already knew that Woong was involved with what was happening outside.
He was fighting hard with Gyeongwan and Yoo outside those doors.
Taesan was well aware why Woong chose not to come in.
It was probably an instinctive reaction from a mixture of fear and avoidance.
“I’ll shut that mouth of yours first.”
Moonkwang walked towards Taesan while grinding his teeth.
Taesan stared at him blankly.
Moonkwang’s ferocious energy gathered around him like a storm. The one-step he took was enough to display his power to the opponent.
He was definitely a notch higher than Jong Risungrak.
“Now that I think of it, I think there might be something we can talk about as well.”
When he had gotten the information out of Woong, the most frequently heard name was Moonkwang.
Moonkwang was right at the center of all the plans strategized by the Jong household.
“Please remember that we need him alive.”
One of the three professionals standing behind Moonkwang spoke in a low voice.
Moonkwnag took another step towards Taesan after answering curtly.
Taesan who was watching him made an absurd expression.
“Isn’t your determination a little too easy?”
Determined to kill, and determined to death was his only thought but to think he wasn’t allowed to kill him.
Of course, he understood why. But just because he understood, it didn’t stop him from feeling annoyed.
Moonkwnag took another step forward. And at that exact moment, Taesan took a step forward as well.
Moonkwang stretched out his hand. It was at great speed. He grasped the thin air in an attempt to hold Taesan’s neck.
He had stretched his hand accurately, but it missed. Even though Taesan had not moved.
But there was no time to be taken aback. Moonkwang turned his arm around and hit Taesan.
Once again he had hit the thin air. He had aimed perfectly but Taesan stepped forward and escaped his attack.
Taesan passed Moonkwang’s side and hit it with his hand.
Moonkwang couldn’t breathe. His whole body didn’t move as though he was paralyzed.
Then Taesan changed his attention to the three professionals standing at the back.
They reacted one beat too late as they had not expected Taesan to get past Moonkwnag and reach them.
First Taesan swung his left arm.
Taesan’s slapped the cheek of the man who had been standing there.
He immediately lost his consciousness without even mustering a cry of pain.
Next was the one who was standing in front.
Taesan used the momentum from swinging his arm to turn his body and swung a punch.
The chin of the man standing at the front swung back. His eyes turned white and he flopped to the floor.
Taesan had lifted his leg after punching the man who had been standing in front.
His spin continued and his feet hit the temples of the last man standing.
The last one fell in the weirdest way.
Taesan then turned and returned to Moonkwang who was struggling to use his body.
Moonkwang’s body started to crack and move slightly. His face burned red. His vein stood up as he was not able to breathe.
Moonkwang used every bit of his strength to breathe in. Fortunately, he was able to breathe as though he had found a breathing whole.
With that, he started to gain back his conscience.
Moonkwang’s attention turned to the prostitute who was standing next to the door.
The girl was trembling, unable to stand the pressure.
Taesan took his time to approach Moonkwang before hitting him in the pit of his stomach.
He was suddenly able to breathe and started coughing wildly.
“Cough! Cough! Cough! “
Taesan returned to this original seat.
He looked to the prostitute to signal, and she dragged the guy who had fainted next to Taesan.
As soon as Taesan finished speaking, Moonkwnag immediately sat down.
His body had not returned back to its original state. Everywhere was creaky, and his flowing energy was cut off in certain parts of his body.
He had not sensed any flow of energy enter his body either. He had just purely been hit.
A look of fear formed in Moonkwang’s eyes.
Even so, his determination was not bent.
Taesan stared into Moonkwang’s eyes. He knew those with his eyes rarely opened up.
Of course, this did not matter to Taesan.
He had no intention to ask nicely.
“Open the door.”
The prostitute seemed surprised at Taesan’s request at first but went to open the door anyway.
The fight was still ongoing outside.
Taesan spotted Woong who was diligently fighting.
It seemed that Woong was the strongest of them all.
And because of Woong, the fight was dragging on.
Taesan simply stared at Woong. At that moment Woong unknowingly turned to face Taesan.
Their eyes met. And there was a horrible stench in the air.
Woong’s movement was the most awkward and odd.
And using that as an opening, Gyeongwan pierced him as fast as lightning.
He blocked the swords of the White Flower brothel warriors before aiming his attack at Woong.
Gyeongwan’s feet hit Woong’s shoulder.
Woong spun in mid-air and landed behind.
And his shit splattered everywhere.
In a battlefield where blood splatters were common, the splattering of shit did not stop them.
It only made it filthy.
The momentum of the fight came to an end as Woong soiled himself. And lay trembling and defeated on the floor.
The ones left were easy to fight.
Taesan watched up until there and gestured to the prostitute to leave.
The prostitute who had lost the color in her face immediately left and silently shut the door behind her.
“You’re not going to tell me even if I ask right?”
Taesan asked while looking at Moonkwang.
Moonkwang stubbornly sealed his mouth.
He could still feel the pain in his body, but it was tolerable.
Taesan looked at him and nodded. As though he had anticipated such a reaction.
“Then let’s pluck it out first.”
Moonkwang looked at Taesan questioningly. Pluck out? What was he going to pluck?
Moonkwang clenched his teeth and glared at Taesan.
“Anyways I’m surprised to find out that the dying second prince of the golden wall clan was such a professional. You had us all fooled.”
“What do you mean fooled? You all just believed what you wanted to.”
Moonkwnag smirked. What he said made no sense. Even he had been completely deceived.
“The two guards outside seem different from what people know about them. Do you still think you didn’t fool anyone?”
“I don’t have time to listen to you. So let’s get started.”
Moonkwang’s face froze at Taesan’s words.
“Are you going to pluck out my limbs? If you do that here it will buy you more trouble than the one you got into for starting a sword fight.”
“I guess you have experience with plucking limbs?”
Moonkwng closed his mouth shut. Taesan laughed at his reaction.
“The moment something works against you, you guys immediately seal your mouths shut.”
Here Taesan was referring to politicians in general. But Moonkwang understood it as the Jong clan.
Taesan spread out his hand and placed it on top of Moonkwang’s head.
“Don’t worry. I won’t do something as foolish as plucking limbs.”
Moonkwang’s eyes were painted with fear.
“Are you…going to pluck out my head?”
Taesan didn’t bother to reply and pulled out Moonkwang’s soul.
To be exact he pulled out half of it.
And he burnt it slowly.
Moonkwang screamed in pain as he felt his soul burning from the deepest part of his body.
Gyeongwan felt himself go limp but forced himself to move.
The fight was over, but there were things left to do.
There were not many fatalities from today’s battle.
Two had definitely died, while the rest were alive. Some of their bodies were completely wasted due to the martial energy they used.
Gyeongwan meticulously tied them up.
He blocked their critical spots to ensure they couldn’t move, then tied up their hands with a thick rough rope.
A little further away, Yoo was doing the same thing.
Gyeongwan was having trouble maintaining his focus and continuously stole a glance at Yoo.
He had expected the side effect to wear off once the fight was over.
But that wasn’t the case. The moment he saw her, to be more accurate, the moment he saw Yoo dripping in sweat his lust flared up like a flame.
It was a much stronger urge than before.
As Gyeongwan felt the limits of his patience, a loud scream echoed throughout the pavilion that made him forget all about the side effect.
His lust was immediately forgotten.
This was the fourth scream. And the fourth time he felt the side effect wear off.
If it wasn’t for the screams, he might have done something to Yoo already.
Today, Gyeongwas was learning the boundaries of his patience.
As soon as the scream ended, his lust crept back in.
Just then Yoo approached Gyeongwan.
“Are you alright? You don’t look well.”
The closeness of her voice was a catalyst to his side effect.
Bloodshot up in his eyes.
He slowly turned to face Yoo.
Then placed both hands on her shoulders and grabbed them tightly.
Yoo looked right into Gyeongwan’s eyes with a look of surprise.
Gyeongwan who couldn’t hold on any longer was about to do something when the door opened.
“What are you doing?”
The moment he heard Taesan’t voice, Gyeongwan released his hands and stepped back.
Yoo was equally surprised. But she didn’t drop her gaze from Gyeongwan.
Taesan frowned at what he saw.
“We still have things left to do. Get rid of those inside as well.”
Gyeongwan and Yoo suppressed their excitement and slowly entered the room to tie up those lying on the floor.
“What was that?”
Taesan muttered to himself, disturbed by what he had just seen. When the doctor suddenly approached him.
“My prince, you are so mean.”
“You really don’t know how to read a room.”
Taesan looked at the doctor unable to make out what he was getting at.
“Why would I need to read a room? I’ve never needed to do such a thing my whole life.”
It was more likely where the other party tried to read him.
The doctor sighed and shook his head, as Taesan didn’t seem to understand.
“We should go and wrap up.”
“Yes let’s go.”
It was time to wrap up today’s plan. Taesan took the doctor along to find Mdm.Rogue.
At the very top of the pavilion, which was a floor above from where they were, was where she was at.
Taesan spread out his sense as they climbed the stairs.
There had been so many instances where he was ambushed right after a fight so he never let down his guards.
And as expected, there were two hiding at the end of the stairs.
Taesan who was climbing the stairs spread out both of his arms.
The neck of the two that had been hiding to ambush, was caught in Taesan’s hands.
The two passed out even before they could cry in pain.
Taesan didn’t even glance at the two and walked down the corridor to the last door and opened it.
Mdm rogue was seated elegantly.
Taesan spoke to her coolly.
“Pay for today’s sins with your body.”
