Refman watched the sight with a blank look on his face

He had seen ones who could summon their weapons back to their hands, but he had never seen one who could launch their weapon with such powerful force.

Refman jolted his eyes wide open and dropped his jaw while watching Min Sung’s skill charge toward him.

And then…

A shield instinctively appeared on Refman’s hand in order to block out the Gungnir S.

Crash!

It made a loud noise but only for a moment.

Crackkkkkk!

A moment later, a crack formed in the shield.

Min Sung’s Gungnir S slowly cracked Refman’s shield and continued to penetrate through.

Refman clenched his teeth and tried to layer his shield, but it was impossible to block out the Gungnir S that Min Sung had launched.

In the end, his shield cracked, and the Gungnir S…

Kaboom!

It made a thundering noise and stabbed into Refman’s chest.

Slash!

The Gungnir S penetrated Refman’s chest, and with the Gungnir S stabbed into his chest, he coughed up blood and took a step back.

Min Sung stared at Refman with his bright eyes and walked toward him.

Refman watched Min Sung walk toward him and laughed.

He still had plenty of magic energy.

Refman used all his force and swung his lava sword, but Min Sung moved swiftly. He dodged the attack and positioned himself to Refman’s right side.

He then grabbed onto Refman’s horns for the third time and slammed down on it with his hand.

A loud impact could be heard.

Crack!

Refman’s horn broke off.

He wobbled around and plopped down on one of his knees.

Min Sung stepped on the neck of Refman, who was looking up at him with his horn bleeding, and took out the Gungnir S that was in his chest.

Refman laid on the ground while spilling blood and laughed.

“If I had absorbed all the life energy I’ve been gathering, I might’ve been able to defeat you…”

Min Sung watched Refman, who was staring at him with sadness and longing, and knitted his brows.

“Beatrice seems to be full of people who don’t know their place.”

Slashhhhhh!

The Gungnir S flashed with gold light.

Slash! Thud!

And it slashed Refman’s neck and then stabbed through the ground.

Once it stabbed into the ground, the Gungnir S almost looked like a flag.

Some were watching this horrific sight.

They were Beatrice natives and players that were captured by the ruler of the volcano, Refman, and were turned into monsters.

It appeared to Min Sung that they lost their will to fight after watching Refman’s defeat.

Refman’s puppets that were turned into monsters by him showed no intent to attack.

They proved it by looking scared and leaving immediately.

Min Sung looked down at Refman, who was losing life in his eyes. He clicked his tongue and wiped one of his hands using his pants.

***

Ho Sung Lee couldn’t hide his shock when he saw Refman dead on the ground with the Gungnir S stabbed into him.

It was a horrific sight.

He was the size of an elephant. He had horns that looked like the devil and had red skin all over.

On top of that, he was so muscular that he was certain that if he was still alive, he wouldn’t have stood a chance.

Ho Sung Lee was impressed byMin Sung for defeating the ruler of the volcano, Refman.

Despite having defeated a powerful ranker in the inner continent, he didn’t seem tired, and no wounds could be spotted on his body.

He wondered if this human had so much power that he could one day reach the level of the Dionysus Gods.

Ho Sung Lee believed that that was actually a plausible scenario.

“Hey.”

In response to Min Sung’s calling, Ho Sung Lee lifted his head and glanced over.

“Yes, Sir!”

“Where were you?”

“Oh, the thing is… something unexpected happened.”

“What happened? And how are you so powerful all of a sudden?”

In response, Ho Sung Lee’s head went blank for a moment.

“… Sorry?”

“You got stronger. Much stronger.”

Min Sung immediately recognized it.

He saw that he had become exponentially more powerful than before.

“I think I might’ve consumed the power that the volcano ruler, Refman, had been collecting for himself,” explained Ho Sung Lee with a laugh.

“Who would’ve thought something so powerful would have been so unprotected?”

Min Sung followed Ho Sung Lee’s line of sight and looked at Refman’s body as well.

Refman was dead with his eyes opened.

Although he was clearly dead, it could be seen in his eyes that he was still longing for his life energy.

Min Sung clenched his teeth at the sight.

“How long do I have to get rid of these for?” Min Sung asked with an emotional voice.

Ho Sung Lee looked at Min Sung in surprise.

Min Sung continued to stare at Refman as if he was despicable.

“I’m getting sick and tired of this, both the Devildom and Beatrice.”

It was understandable.

He was just a man who wanted a quiet and normal life to himself without having to chase after power and new territory.

He just wanted to enjoy a nice meal.

Ho Sung Lee grew tense.

Whenever Min Sung became stressed, that affected him as well.

Ho Sung Lee decided to make him delicious food that would get his mind off of things.

[You’ve completed the first page of the ancient document.]

[You’ve acquired 20,000 points as an additional reward.]

[Your rank has increased.]

[Your rank is now in the boundary.]

[You’ve acquired a high reputation. Your reputation is now rank D.]

It appeared from the stat window and the additional information that once he gained enough reputation, it was measured in different ranks.

And the fact that he was now in a rank within the boundary and that he was rank D meant that other ranker players were now able to recognize his existence.

That was because higher ranking players were able to check the rankings of other players.

He knew quite a few groups that maintained their high level of authority still existed.

Min Sung was sure of it, and they would try to get rid of what seemed threatening to them right off the bat.

Even if this was where the top organisms on land gathered, having intellect lead to ambition.

He had a feeling that the boring battles he had been fighting until now were soon going to become bothersome.

“Sir, would you like to have your next meal once we find a cooler place out of the volcano?” Ho Sung lee asked.

In order to properly eat, they had to be in a place where there would be no resistance.

And there was nothing more uncomfortable than eating near boiling lava.

“Sure.”

Min Sung nodded and led the way.

While they left the volcano, Min Sung’s party was able to see the monsters that appeared to be the volcano ruler Refman’s former puppets.

They also saw the cruel process of those transforming into those puppets.

Refman had caught Beatrice natives and players. He absorbed their life energy and then made them into monsters.

And although he was dead, the process was still ongoing.

They were unable to even look at Min Sung, who had defeated Refman, and trembled.

That was also the force that gave him the D rank in reputation in Beatrice.

The monsters showed a sensitive reaction to the player’s rank, and it wasn’t simply just fear of someone more powerful.

Min Sung watched the people who were getting robbed of their life energy, dying, and becoming monsters inside the lava.

He thought this place was no different from hell.

That was how horrific it was.

Even the monsters that were doing this to them had become monsters because of Refman, and they were simply following Refman’s orders.

Min Sung watched for a moment and then walked away.

Ho Sung Lee also followed from behind and ran away from the screaming.

***

As soon as they got out of the volcanic region, Ho Sung Lee finally sighed out of relief.

Although they had just gotten out of the volcanic region, the wind felt very refreshing.

“Ew, I have volcanic ash all over me.”

Ho Sung Lee brushed himself off and looked at Min Sung.

He was looking at the ancient document.

“Did something show up?”

Ho Sung Lee asked as he washed off his blackened hands with water.

Min Sung threw the ancient document into his item window.

“I only see a destination. I guess we have to wait a little longer before we see anything else. Our next destination is Krok.”

On the map, they had to travel quite a distance toward the east.

“I’m probably a lot faster now,” said Ho Sung Lee while tapping on his thighs.

“You’re still slow,” Min Sung answered without much anticipation.

“But I’ll probably arrive a lot faster than before, haha.”

Ho Sung Lee laughed.

“Shut it. Where’s dinner?”

“I’ll prepare it right away.”

“Make something simple.”

He was so mentally tired from facing off against Refman and thinking about being in Beatrice that he just wanted a simple meal.

While Ho Sung Lee prepared the food, Min Sung took the ancient document back out of the item window.

On the second page read, ‘Krok’ and nothing else.

A place located to the east side on the map.

He looked at the page for quite some time, but no more words showed up.

He then smelled something delicious.

Min Sung looked back at Ho Sung Lee with the ancient document still in his hands.

Min Sung saw the red Aura that charged his way.

The light of the red Aura reflected Min Sung’s cold facial expression.

It was a powerful force that he had never experienced before, but Min Sung’s face remained unchanged, and his eyes didn’t show any change whatsoever.

Min Sung gripped onto his Gungnir S.

Min Sung then launched his special skill at the red Aura that looked like it was about to swallow him whole.

The Gungnir S, which left his hand, flashed with white light. It destroyed the red Aura and continued to soar through.

Refman watched the sight with a blank look on his face

He had seen ones who could summon their weapons back to their hands, but he had never seen one who could launch their weapon with such powerful force.

Refman jolted his eyes wide open and dropped his jaw while watching Min Sung’s skill charge toward him.
