#When I returned, my family was ruined (79)
It was a voice filled with a chill that made me shiver just by hearing it. Soon after, a figure began to walk towards the main training ground.
The nobles who saw the young man murmured.
“Who is that person?”
“It’s a familiar face…”
On the other hand, Elena.
I recognized my younger brother right away.
And I couldn’t help but feel shocked.
Even though he was a younger brother, he showed a cold side to people around him from a young age. However, the atmosphere that is being revealed now is.
‘…It’s not that bad at all.’
It was as if his heart had completely frozen, and not even a trace of the usual smile appeared on his lips.
It has changed.
I couldn’t pinpoint exactly what it was, but it definitely was. Soon the Three Dukes and the Grand Duke looked at each other.
Ethan was also noticing the change in him at a glance.
The guy was completely hostile to himself now.
This was a fact that could be seen just by looking at the energy rising from his body.
It was a markedly different attitude from his previous life.
“It’s been a while. Theron.”
“okay. “It’s been nine years.”
“The flowering ceremony is already over.”
“no. “Who wants it?”
Theron laughed coldly.
Soon, black flames began to bloom above his sword.
Ethan saw that and let out a laugh. At first glance, it was a flame that looked like black flame.
That wasn’t black salt.
The secrets of the kingdom’s seven families were nothing but flames that had been entangled like snakes and completely turned into rags.
The audience looked surprised when they saw Theron’s sword.
It was the same for the nobles of the 5 collateral families.
The black flame that Theron was showing right now could barely be expressed in that way.
Because it looked like a black flame was blooming.
As the attainment of black flame deepens, the color of the flame gradually turns black.
If you consider that.
It would be an understatement to describe Theron’s accomplishments as overwhelming.
Emergence of new competitors.
Interest arose in the eyes of the audience at the sight.
The archduke who created a pure white flame.
And even the Three Princes, who are spewing out more gloomy flames than anyone else.
The flowering ceremony, where the outcome had been clearly determined, was now so crowded that it was impossible to predict even an inch ahead.
Ethan looked at Theron.
The tattered flame alone is enough to arouse one’s anger.
But it started to get even more heated.
Theron’s pupils, who were staring intently in this direction, began to gradually become thinner, like the pupils of a bright yellow snake.
As if it was the look in the eyes of the dragon people I had dealt with in my past life.
“…What have you been learning?”
“I learned a lot. And the owner of the family had already been decided. “That’s me.”
The guy’s eyes were already filled with madness. Theron’s new form instantly became blurry.
Immediately after, it started running towards this direction. Ethan looked at Theron’s flame.
It was a tattered flame, but the power contained within it was such that even he could not easily downplay it.
Ethan released the three pills without hesitation.
Not only did he feel lighter, as if all the shackles on his body had been removed, but an explosive mana began to flow from his heart. A cold white flame stained the great sword.
White salt and black salt.
The two forces collided and spewed out sparks towards each other.
Everyone in the audience widened their eyes.
The black flame revealed by the Three Dukes.
Its size reached 3m.
Quality and quantity.
Both are surprisingly good.
In contrast, the white flame revealed by the Archduke only barely dyed the sword body.
White Flame was not pushed back even an inch by Black Flame’s energy. No, rather, the archduke’s white flame was completely overwhelming Theron’s black flame.
That was clear just by looking at the sight of the two swords clashing.
Every time the white salt and black salt collide, the color of the black salt starts to turn more and more gray.
‘…Was the power of the white flame that much?’
The black flame that Samgongja was showing was not the kind of skill that a mere successor could show.
The completely black flame was reminiscent of the black flames of the previous duke.
It’s not enough to lightly accept the attack, but instead, it’s pushing the three attackers!
It was as if they had completely proven here that the story of the first head of the family was by no means a lie.
Ethan, who was clashing swords with Theron, tilted his head.
‘How did I accumulate so much negative emotions?’
The flames of Theron’s sword contained such negative emotions that it would not be surprising to say that he was completely corrupted.
Theron was eighteen.
It was close to impossible to build up those feelings at that age.
He said he returned to the past like himself.
Unless it is.
Unless the seven families are involved in modifications.
‘The form of swordsmanship is similar to that of the Destruction Dragon.’
No matter how I looked at it, the third one seemed to be connected to the Yongin tribe.
Theron, one of the two younger brothers who fought against the dragon race for his own sake even as he was chewed into their mouths.
Memories of him flashed by.
I felt dirty.
A lot of that too.
I looked at Theron.
The guy’s eyes were completely turned upside down and he was throwing sword strikes like crazy.
Dragon of destruction.
They were like that too.
It seemed as if the image of him rushing like an animal, leaving his whole body to his instincts, was being overlaid on Theron.
“Let’s get it right first.”
A stick was medicine for a crazy dog that didn’t listen.
Although he was fighting hard, as the sword attack continued, Theron was being cornered.
The audience was watching the fight between the two without even being able to swallow their saliva properly.
The accomplishments of the Three Confucius far exceeded their own thoughts.
‘… Even if I can’t do that, I’m at the level of a 7-star knight.’
Theron, who was moving with all his might, seemed to have at least that much skill.
But what’s even more surprising is.
It was the appearance of the Archduke lightly pushing Theron.
Picturesque swordsmanship skills.
The sight of him purifying the black flames that he said had corrupted him while spewing out pure white flames almost made him look like a Holy Knight.
‘It is purified.’
I felt like I could purify the flames that were causing him to run rampant to some extent with just 30 more sword strikes.
At that time, the third spirit will also return to some extent.
It was right then.
Someone broke into the training ground. The movement was so secret and fast that it was barely noticeable to Ethan’s senses.
‘What is this again?’
Since he intervened in a fight that was going on without saying anything, he would have nothing to say even if he died.
After calculating the unavoidable angle in the faintly felt movement.
Immediately he stabbed me with his sword.
I felt a heavy sensation.
It was armor.
It’s also an armor filled with so much mana that even white flames can’t cut it down.
As soon as Inyoung invaded, Theron became quiet as if he was facing an ally.
“Stop it. Grand Duke.”
“What are you?”
It was the moment to ask a question.
A voice of astonishment erupted from the audience.
“…oh my god!”
“It’s Count Marek!”
The Lacian Dukes.
It was a family that was the head of the kingdom’s seven families, and a family that quickly emerged as the kingdom’s greatest swordsmanship family after the fall of the Duke of Ardan.
The person who now blocked the archduke’s sword was none other than Count Marek, the leader of the dukedom’s knights.
He was a knight known as a 10-star knight who had reached the level of transcendence.
It was truly as if a giant among giants had appeared.
Even in the Raycian duchy, it was known that the only person who could move Count Marek was the duke, the head of the family.
It wasn’t just one big guy who appeared. Even the one person who appeared later was enough to surprise.
Because they were members of the Duke Agiles family, known as masters of black magic.
“…Dark Demon Master?”
In terms of knights, he was a man of skill who could be called an 8-star master.
Although he was not a solid second-in-command like Count Marek, even taking that into account, the Duke of Agiles must have put effort into allocating personnel.
“What are you guys doing again?”
“The Lacian duchy does not believe this flowering ceremony is justified. It was only two weeks ago that the letter arrived. “The flowering ceremony was held at extremely short notice, without the Three Dukes having time to prepare.”
“I think the same goes for the Duke of Agiles.”
The warlock who followed Count Marek was spitting out words as if he were a parrot.
It was as if some random bastards had suddenly invaded. I looked at Count Marek.
The guy was looking at me with very calm eyes.
‘A guy like this is called a transcendent?’
If that guy was a true transcendent, he wouldn’t have even felt like he was popular from the moment he broke in.
Because the person who overcame the wall had that much strength.
This guy was not a transcendental person.
Considering his previous life, his true skills were at a level similar to that of a 9-star superhuman.
‘There’s so much mana.’
The amount of mana itself was enormous.
When I crossed the wall of transcendence in my past life. Because he had so much mana that he felt it was similar to the mana he had at the time.
The reason he is treated as a 10-star knight is probably because he has the same amount of mana as the Great Sea.
Can you win?
Ethan thought for a moment.
Hwan had already been liberated a long time ago. This meant that more mana could not be drawn.
‘It must be difficult.’
Even if you have an unreleased ring in its original state, it will be difficult to defeat that guy.
Because those who were called supermen were not chaff.
‘After passing the cycle and reaching the flowering stage.’
If you collect more than six pills there, you may be able to completely defeat him.
‘It’s different from my previous life.’
Kingdom 7th Street.
In previous lives, there were almost no people with this much power.
But it was different now.
If the second strongest member of the Lacian duchy reached the level of superhuman.
‘The first one might be a real transcendental person.’
Why didn’t they say there was someone called the 11th or 12th star?
Those guys may have really crossed the wall of transcendence, or are trying to do so.
It was quite amazing how the world had changed.
Ethan asked the guys.
“Due to the tight schedule, the Three Dukes were both mentally and physically exhausted. It was a situation where he couldn’t properly reveal his power. Therefore, Bio insists that the flowering ceremony be held again.”
Marek looked at the Archduke.
The seven kingdoms have invested heavily in Theron for the flowering ceremony.
In order to make him take over the Dukedom with more overwhelming skills than anyone else.
It was nine years of preparation.
Recently, the Archduke has been gaining prominence, but even after hearing about it, I invested so much that I felt hopeful instead of alarmed.
The results were below expectations.
The archduke had such outstanding talent that even Marek had no choice but to acknowledge his growth speed and strength.
It was for this reason that two ducal families, representative of the seven families, invaded.
If things continued like this, Theron’s black flames would not be purified by the archduke’s white flames, and it seemed like they would be completely destroyed.
It was a result that could not be easily accepted by the seven kingdoms.
“What on earth have you done to my brother?”
“I was just telling you the trick.”
Marek’s calm reply.
Because of that, Ethan’s actions were decided.
‘He was a guy with really pitiful eyes.’
It just worked out well.
If the opponent had retreated because he was strong, he would not have clashed swords with the dragon lord.
So, giving up Marek because he is strong.
For Ethan, it was an impossible option.
The moment the swords clashed.
The people in the audience widened their eyes.
This is because his sword, which struck down the archduke’s white flame, was wrapped in black flame that looked like black flame.
