“Its weaknesses are in its eyes and stomach!” Shakan shouted .

The behemoth’s thick skin was a near impossible challenge, so the answer Shakan found were the eyes and stomach .

“I see!”

Crockta raised his speed . Now he was almost at the behemoth .  The behemoth didn’t move as it watched Crockta’s movements like it was expecting an attack .  It happened the moment Crockta entered between the behemoth’s two big paws .

The behemoth stamped its feet, causing the earth beneath it to shake .  The behemoth’s foot was about the size of a house, causing what seemed like an earthquake . Crockta desperately tried to avoid it while maintaining his balance . It was like a huge press machine constantly descending towards him .

“Good luck, Crockta,” Shakan muttered as he watched .

Someone had to draw the behemoth’s gaze, and Crockta was perfect for that role . The skin of the belly was pointed out as a weak point, but it was almost impossible to stab there directly .  Now, the only thing that remained was their share .

“Tiyo, aim for the eyes . ”

“I understand dot!”

“There is a forest where the regeneration of creatures is close to infinite . However, if you hit the eyes then you can temporarily stop it . ”

In the past, Shakan had pierced the behemoth’s eyes, causing it to jump around in a huge rage . However, after a while, dark energy appeared and restored it, like the eye hadn’t been hurt in the first place .

He had been helpless in front of such an immortal monster .  But this time would be different .

Tiyo’s ‘General’ emitted a bright color and attacked the behemoth’s eyes . It wasn’t lethal, but the artifact was effective in shaking the enemy and stopping its movements .  The behemoth shook its head and General’s bullets started to veer from their target .

“Shit . ”

“Calm down . ”

“The muzzle is shaking dot…”

Tiyo lamented and started to kneel .  Shakan was confused .

“Tiyo?”

Kneeling during battle .  Kneeling was traditionally a sign of submission .  However, Tiyo’s expression was still determined . It wasn’t the expression of a loser .

Then Shakan muttered as he saw Tiyo’s next move, “Indeed…”

This was a technique of the Quantes Gnomes Garrison .  Tiyo was in a ‘down shooting’ position .

It had the highest precision that was incomparable to shooting while standing . It was a ruthless position that showed no signs of mercy, a form of marksmanship that intended to thoroughly crush the enemy .

“Aim cruelly and mercilessly . ”

The earth and the body united to aim at the enemy .  The specialty of a rifle that couldn’t be imitated by archery .  Tiyo’s General fired .

“…Dammit!”

But his shooting was significantly off the mark .  Tiyo hadn’t taken into account the behemoth’s great height . With his prone position, he couldn’t raise his aim high enough to hit the eyes . At best, he could only hit the body .

Tiyo rose to his feet again .

“Failure!”

“It was a good try though . ”

As they were talking carefreely, Crockta shouted desperately from underneath the behemoth, “What are you doing behind meeeee!”

A giant paw passed right underneath Crockta’s nose . Tiyo recovered his spirit as he saw that Crockta was in danger .

“Sorry dot! I’m trying again dot!”

His short legs scrambled as he hurriedly moved to a big rock and placed the rifle onto it . It was a sitting posture firing technique . Since he could lean against obstacles, it achieved the same level of precision as kneeling down and he could aim at a higher angle .

He didn’t make any mistakes this time .

“This is the strength of the Quantes gnomes!”

The magic bullet from General precisely hit the behemoth’s eye . The behemoth twisted its head .

“Kuooooooooh!”

While the behemoth’s attention was caught by Tiyo’s shooting, Crockta took the risk and jumped between its legs . The skin of its belly was revealed before Crockta’s eyes .

“Bul’tarrrrrrr──────!”

Crockta jumped while shouting .  It was thinner than ogre leather, but had a stronger defense . Steam rose as he used Leyteno’s Vigorous Greatsword Technique and stabbed firmly .  ‘Ogre Slayer’ barely penetrated the behemoth’s skin . The flesh was torn by the blade .

“Kuoooooooooh!”

The behemoth shouted angrily . It was a low-frequency shout that caused the earth to ring . Crockta’s eardrums were rattled . Crockta’s body became stiff .  He heard the behemoth’s big feet moving . A shadow fell above Crockta’s body . Crockta looked up blankly .

He couldn’t avoid it .

“Bul’tar . ”

Crockta whispered and closed his eyes .  The foot was just about to stomp on him .  At that moment, a bolt flew from a distance and bounced off the behemoth .

Kwaang!

The behemoth’s body was pushed back by the explosive destructive power .  It was a slim arrow, but it contained enough destructive power to push back the vast behemoth .

“This is a hunter’s arrow . ”

Shakan readied a new arrow .  Crockta started to move again . Crockta fought under the behemoth’s body while Shakan fired an arrow whenever it was needed .  

He placed a powerful ‘will’ in the arrows .  In the world of Elder Lord, the possibilities were endless .  Just willpower!

It hit the enemy as physical force . Some called it praying while others called it aura . But for Shakan, it was just a fierce desire to pierce the enemy . Although Crota’s sword contained some will, he was just barely walking along the entrance of this field .

“Look, rookies! I am the last Shakan!”

He gave a rare scream .  Crockta’s spirited struggle influenced Shakan as Shakan moved his body .  Now it seemed like he could kill anything .

“The Shakan hunt everything! Now it is your turn!”

The behemoth’s gaze turned to Shakan like it understood .  It ignored Crockta annoying it and started to move .

Kuuong!

Kuuong!

“Scatter, Tiyo!” Shakan shouted .

Shakan and Tiyo quickly retreated . But due to the difference in size, it was inevitable that the behemoth would arrive quickly . There was a huge shadow over their heads .

“Don’t ignore meeeeee──────!”

A roar containing willpower!

Crockta had followed the behemoth and jumped up while swinging Ogre Slayer . The greatsword was lodged in its buttocks and Crockta clung on tightly . The behemoth shook its lower body but it couldn’t get rid of Crockta .

“Don’t look at anyone other than me, monster!”

Crockta grinned . Then he used the greatsword to climb to the top of the behemoth . The behemoth twisted before losing its balance and falling down .  Crockta removed Ogre Slayer from its ass . The behemoth was troubled by the pain .

“Now!”

Tiyo and Shakan launched their attacks . Tiyo’s magic bullets struck the behemoth’s body while Shakan fired arrows all over the place . The behemoth was in pain . Crockta headed towards its head .  The angry behemoth opened its mouth .

Right now, the size difference wasn’t a huge advantage .

“Kuaaaaaaaah!

It was a horrible shriek! The shout was terrible enough to paralyze them .

Then the behemoth breathed in . The demonic energy of the surrounding area was sucked into the behemoth’s mouth . Crockta stabbed Ogre Slayer into the behemoth’s back, but the behemoth continued to breathe in .

A tremendous concentration of demonic power started to form in the behemoth’s mouth . Tiyo couldn’t stand it as he turned his head and covered his eyes .  It wasn’t because the light was too dazzling for his eyes .

On the contrary, the darkness was too thick .  It felt terrifying; it was like his soul was being sucked in .

Shakan’s opened his eyes wide and resisted it . He aimed his arrow at the darkness inside the mouth .

‘This is the behemoth’s imperial wrath . ’

Shakan knew that attacking its eyes and belly wasn’t enough to kill it . He found out that the real weakness of the behemoth was the sensitive mouth, just like a dragon .

Just like a dragon could use breath, the behemoth was able to shoot out the deadly demonic magic . There was a short moment when the condensed energy would flash with a brilliant color . It was the authority of a breath attack .

He needed to penetrate through it .  Shakan gritted his teeth . The energy was now aiming at Shakan . Tiyo was already running away . However, Shakan stood in his spot and confronted it .

“Shakan! Avoid it!”

Tiyo shouted . But the sound didn’t reach Shakan’s ears .  Laughter emerged .  A gust of wind swept through his hair . His body seemed to be pushed back . But he never moved his gaze from the center of the storm .

‘Father, we are Shakan . ’

“Yes, we are Shakan . ”

He didn’t have a name .  Only Shakan .  He was Skolla, Penando, Achilles, and in addition, his dead wife . The history of all the Shakan on the continent flashed through his head . The weight of the clan was on his shoulders .  Therefore, he wasn’t a single hunter, but the Shakan Clan itself .

“We killed a dragon and started the Shakan lineage!” Shakan shouted like it was his last hurrah .

His voice didn’t reach far, as it was swept away by the storm .  But he didn’t stop as he shouted again .

“I’m going to kill you! Behemoth!”

He pulled back the bowstring to its maximum extent . His will was nestled in the arrow .  Both his endless hatred and resentment towards the behemoth were placed on it .

The dark breath of the behemoth converged towards him .  It was the darkness that didn’t allow anything to shine while erasing the world .

Crockta on the behemoth’s back and the fleeing Tiyo wouldn’t be affected by the disaster .  They could survive .

‘Penetrate the core of darkness . ’

He had no other choice .  A flash of light divided the darkness . As it penetrated the darkness, it gradually became a light that swept up the darkness . The beam of light moved through the darkness .  It was a straight line without any errors .

‘Open up the North!’

There was a blast .

The two forces hit each other and everything around them was swept away . Crockta fell off the behemoth’s back and rolled for a long time . He could barely raise his head after a while .  

The behemoth flopped down .  

Crockta relied on Ogre Slayer as he barely managed to raise his body .  Black smoke was coming from the half of the behemoth’s head that remained .  Shakan did it .

“Shakan!”

Crockta moved his body to search for them .

“Shakan! Tiyo!”

Tiyo avoided the breath but Shakan had faced it directly . Crockta jumped in the direction where Shakan had been .

“Shakan!”

The breath had destroyed everything .  The land had a deep hole in the shape of a hemisphere . In the center of the hole was Shakan .  Dust rose as Crockta hurried down the slope .

“Shakan!”

He almost fell but he managed to reach Shakan . Shakan wasn’t fine . There was a pool of blood around his body in the hole .  Crockta held him .  Shakan had a large hole in the middle of his body . Blood and guts flowed from it .

“Crockta…”

He was near death .  However, his voice was the most cheerful Crockta had ever heard it . Shakan smiled faintly .

“Did I get it…?”

Crockta clenched his teeth and endured it .  Then he nodded .

“You got it . ”

“How is it? Is Shakan a rabbit now…?”

Crockta smiled and shook his head . Then he touched Shakan’s cheek . It was gradually cooling .  “No, the Shakan hunter pedigree is evident . You have caught your target . ”

“Kuhuhuhu…” Shakan coughed up blood while laughing . Crockta calmed him down .

“Say no more . ”

“It’s okay . Now there is no…”

The moment that Shakan spoke .  His eyes suddenly grew larger and they trembled  Crockta realized that something was wrong .  Crockta could see the scene in Shakan’s eyes .

“Grrrrrrr…”

In Shakan’s eyes, a huge creature was standing up again .  It was the behemoth .

“Oh my god . ”

He couldn’t recognize the shape because half the head was gone . It shouldn’t have been able to stand up after receiving that much damage . But what was the sight before him now? Crockta turned his head .

Darkness was swirling around the behemoth’s wounds . The darkness was repairing and replacing its wounds . It was missing half its head but a red light shone in the darkness .

At that moment, Crockta felt despair .  They wouldn’t be able to win .

He realized it . It was the first time he felt such a complete feeling of helplessness since he began Elder Lord . It was impossible to kill the behemoth .

Crockta dropped his head .

“Shakan…”

Shakan was talking, “A Shakan never leaves his enemies alive…”

His body shook . He tried to raise his body from the ground . However, his intestines flowed from the hole in his belly .

“Shakan!”

“The bag, open it…” Shakan whispered .

Crockta shook his head and spoke, “It is okay now . You’ve done enough . ”

Crockta tried to pacify him . But Shakan exploded angrily at Crockta .  It was hard to believe the dying body could make such a sound .

“Shut up!”

“……!”

“I told you to open the bag! Crockta!”

Crockta looked into his eyes .  Fire was burning in it .  An indomitable will .

That was it .

In the end, Crockta was forced to agree . He removed the bag from Shakan’s bag and opened it .  A rotting stench came from the bag .

“This…”

Inside the bag was a huge heart .  The core of it was already rotting .  It was the heart of the manticore that they killed . It was polluted with an awful smell . Crockta held it with trembling hands .

“Feed it to me . ”

Shakan said with a sigh .

“……!”

“Put it in my mouth . ”

Crockta saw the tenacity in his blazing eyes .

Then he realized .

Shakan had repaired his collapsing body by killing creatures and eating their hearts . This was why he didn’t look his age, the reason for his broken mind, and why he couldn’t distinguish between the past and present .

His body was already the same as all the monsters here, eroded by the demonic energy .  However, his blood was still red .

Crockta was unable to resist Shakan’s burning gaze and raised the heart to his mouth .

Shakan chewed on it . He opened his jaw and bit it with force . He chewed on the muscles and absorbed its blood and magic power .

His eyes were still blazing .

“The founder of Shakan killed a dragon and ate it . ”

The black energy started to repair his body . His eyes were now black . He got up . The broken body had been stuck together like glue . He vomited up a black liquid .  It was the same as the creatures .

“I have to become a monster if I want to kill a monster . ”

He swallowed the heart until the end . His neck moved as he swallowed .  Shakan laughed . He laughed as the black energy spread .  He grasped the bow on his back . His eyes burned red . Soon, the creature called Shakan raised his body .

The behemoth cried out loud as it noticed his presence .  The two monsters stared at each other .
