Screech . Screech . Screech . . .
Clatter . Clatter .
Screech . . .
As the carriage containing Grid entered deep into the forest, the cries of the beasts subsided . The only sounds that could be heard in the silent forest were the wheels of the carriage and the footsteps of the soldiers .
The birds and beasts hiding was a sign that monsters would appear . Grid naturally knew such common sense .
Kasim replied to Grid .
-Monsters can’t pop up on a forest that the people of Titan often use .
-It’s people .
-There are many people hiding in the area .
Kasim’s shadows spread out in the forest that was filled with darkness . Kasim reported back .
-The enemy . There are more than 300 of them .
-No . They’re the people who attacked Khan .
“ . . . !!”
Immortal! The nonchalant looking Grid rose from his seat . His face distorted like a demon as he opened the door of the carriage .
Clack! Clack clack!
The ground shook as hundreds of red lights appeared in the bushes . As the dark clouds covering the full moon were lifted, the blue moonlight shone onto the forest and revealed hundreds of unsightly skeletons . It was a large undead army . The vanguard contained skeleton knights while the skeleton mages were in the rear .
"Build up a stronger sense of revenge . ”
From far away, a sweet voice was heard in the rear of the undead army . Grid jumped out of the carriage and saw the white-haired young man .
“Veradin . . . !”
The person who made Khan’s last moments filled with pain . The target of hatred that Grid killed dozens or even hundreds of times in his head!
Kasim had no time to stop him . Grid pulled out the Ideal Dagger, used Quick Movements and immediately rushed towards Veradin . He put away the Ideal Dagger and pulled out a weapon .
“Grid! Get him!"
"Kill that bastard!”
The necromancers shouted excitedly as they discovered Grid and dozens of skeleton knights blocked Grid’s way . They wielded huge swords and spears, completely focused on only killing Grid .
The four God Hands transformed into Lifael’s Spear, inflicting catastrophic damage to evil beings and opening the way for Grid .
“Heok . . . !”
“T-This is ridiculous . . . !”
Dozens of skeleton knights over level 250 were turned to ashes at once? The spears also moved without Grid touching them? The astonished necromancers simultaneously thought .
‘The best . . . !’
The necromancers were reminded . The opponent they were currently trying to hunt was the one who broke the sky . Grid stormed into the middle of enemy camp and pressed the button of the Pulling Device .
Red and black swords appeared in the moonlight, rotating before joining together .
The skeleton knights and necromancers standing in the direction of the rotation were hit . The Pulling Device combined the two swords into one . The Enlightenment Sword .
Kwa kwang! Kwa kwa kwa kwa kwa kwa kwa kwa!
The earth shook . It felt like the forest would fly away . Grid rushed through the undead army as four spears rotated around him, reminiscent of someone breaking through the sea .
‘Now he’s just a monster . ’
Grid’s presence rose to the rank of deities . Veradin wasn’t surprised because he already knew this, but Grid’s presence was beyond the scope that he observed . Veradin’s tension soared to the peak as Grid narrowed the distance with a fearsome expression . His legs were shaking . But Veradin had a smile on his face . It was a smile of satisfaction .
Did he believe in the four spears around him? Or was it because he lost his mind in front of his enemies . Grid was so focused on Veradin that he was unable to response to the attack of the death knight that suddenly appeared .
The poisonous dagger of Kyleo pierced Grid’s heart . It was an attack filled with the poison master’s killing power . It gave a paralysis that couldn’t be resisted to the target and simultaneously reduced the target’s health by 50% . It was Kyleo’s ultimate ability that had a very low chance of causing instantaneous death .
A perfect opportunity to defeat the crazy beast! After confirming that Grid was trapped, Veradin shouted and the skeleton mages simultaneously chanted a prepared spell .
47 skeleton mages used magic at the same time . Veradin was convinced when he saw the explosive magic power . He had no doubt that Grid would receive huge damage from the magic bombardment and enter the immortality state . That’s right . In the midst of the urgent situation, Veradin hadn’t confirmed it yet .
[Death Knight Kyleo has returned to an inactive state . ]
[The target didn’t receive any damage . ]
[The target has resisted the absolute paralysis and poison . ]
These notification windows!
Veradin’s face was dismayed as he belatedly checked the notification windows . Veradin couldn’t understand it . Kyleo’s dagger had clearly stabbed Grid’s heart . Veradin had seen it with his own eyes . Yet the attack was for nothing? Grid didn’t receive any damage?
“What is this . . . ? Stop!"
Veradin was upset that things went differently than planned and hurriedly shouted . But it was too late . The necromancers commanded their summoned skeleton mages to activate the magic .
Gravity Boom . It was advanced black magic available to skeleton mages over level 300 . It was commonly used as the ultimate spell of a skeleton mage . It modified the gravity of the specified area and slowed down the target, while causing an explosion . The spell was powerful but the scope was too narrow and the casting time was very long . It was even slower to deploy . It was almost impossible to hit a moving target with Gravity Boom .
That’s why . . .
Grid resisted Kyleo’s paralysis and poison with Khan’s posthumous work Valhalla and avoided Gravity Boom . Grid took one step towards Veradin .
Kwa kwa kwa kwang!
Two steps .
Three steps . Every time he got closer, a senseless explosion occurred behind him . As the forest became a wasteland, Grid used Pagma’s Swordsmanship, Link, to get rid of the skeleton mages as he reached Veradin .
“This is the first time . ” Grid’s voice, full of killing intent, reached Veradin’s eyes . “You’re going to die for me . ”
This death was just the beginning, not the end .
Grid declared, "You will keep dying because of me over and over . I will make you suffer more pain than Khan felt . ”
Kyleo kept attacking Grid to protect his master, but it was in vain . He attacked Grid with assassination skills, which were resisted by Khan’s armor .
“You’re crazily overgeared . ”
Veradin said with a silly expression .
"Shut your stinky mouth . ”
Grid didn’t give him a chance to speak . He swung the Enlightenment Sword . But the sword never reached Veradin’s neck .
All of a sudden, a sword flew and blocked the Enlightenment Sword .
“You . . . ?”
Transparent blue hair faded into the moonlight and looked like it was shedding frost . Grid was puzzled as he grasped the identity of the woman who interfered .
“ . . . ”
The First Knight . The strongest sword that exercised the will of the empire . In the end, she was just a tool . She said with a sad expression, “I’m sorry . ”
“Kuk . . . !”
Grid’s body rose in the air . It was because he was hit by Mercedes’s shield that rose at an angle that couldn’t be seen . It was an overwhelming ‘charge . ’ Grid flew through the air and showed a defenseless appearance .
Kasim’s voice was heard from behind him . Kasim and the soldiers were surrounded by several Red Knights . While Grid was blinded by Veradin, Kasim and the soldiers were also fighting .
“Shadow Move . . . !”
Kasim attempted to save Grid . However, his range of movements were greatly reduced due to the moonlight swallowing up the darkness . He couldn’t move long distances and was caught from behind by the Red Knights .
“Kasim . . . !”
Grid knew who Kasim was . Lord’s mentor, friend, and family . It was Kasim who filled the vacant position of ‘father’ for Lord . Yes, Kasim was like Khan to Lord .
"No . . . !!”
He couldn’t lose Kasim . Grid forgot the enemies in front of his eyes as he fully focused on Kasim . Grid used Fly and flew to Kasim to save him from the Red Knights . No, he tried to fly there . Mercedes was the problem .
She unleashed her sword at the fastest
“You dog . . . ! The emperor . . . ! The emperor ordered you?!!”
The emperor sent Grid off with a smile only to hit him in the back of the head? Mercedes couldn’t carelessly reply to Grid .
Veradin’s voice filled the silence instead . “If you’re smart then you should’ve thought about it . Do you think I could attack you without any insurance?”
He believed in the strength of the Red Knights and the full moon . Veradin’s plan was perfect . Now the only thing left was to kill Overgeared King Grid and announce it . The Overgeared Kingdom’s wrath would grow bigger and Immortal’s reputation would naturally rise . Agnus would no longer be able to stand by .
Veradin smiled with satisfaction . He knew that Grid had the three heavenly kings and the Overgeared members that he could summon . But he believed there was no way to stop the 10 Red Knights that included the First Knight, even if all of them were summoned .
‘Please summon your knights . ’
He would kill all the people Grid relied on . The moment that Veradin was rejoicing .
Mercedes’ sword, which boasted a different strength from Lorex, pierced Grid’s abdomen .
“Cough . . . !”
This woman was truly a monster . She was equal or much better than the seven dukes of the empire . Grid coughed up blood but he wasn’t worried about his life right now . He cared about Kasim’s finite life .
‘It’s over for Kasim if I die . ’
Lord would be upset . Grid didn’t want his child to feel such sadness and hatred . Grid could only make one choice .
“Knight . . . Cough! Summoning . . . !”
The strongest power that Grid relied on . The only one with the power to achieve Grid’s desire!
“ . . . ?!”
The name buried deep in her chest . Mercedes became blank as she witnessed a man appearing in a pillar of light .
