‘I will make the Kihae (气海) the sea, and the shrines (神闕) as the stem. Heavenly Lord (天柱), who supports the sky, let the Hundred Years pass through the universe. If my heart moves, the mountains and the sea will also move. Thoughts (萬狀) are illusions, if the images are strong, they will also become true images.’
Somu-sang opened his closed eyes. Then the clear light flashed and disappeared.
There was no parenthesis.
Somu was developing day by day. The Somu-sang a few days ago was different from the Somu-sang now.
Jin was swirling around his body without stopping.
As he had been stagnant for a long time, So Mu-sang desperately needed to become stronger. His thirst and the power of flexibility and inertia were in harmony, and he had no choice but to develop at a terrifying speed.
After finishing the work, So Mu-sang enjoyed the lingering sound for a while.
In this current state, it seemed unlikely that he would lose even if he competed with Yeopwol. However, the Prime Minister was never reckless.
No matter how terrifyingly developed in martial arts, the fact that he was a member of the foreign party did not change. On the other hand, Yeopwol has the strong background of Simwonui behind her back.
‘Now is the time to be patient. A gentleman’s revenge is never too late, even after ten years. The day will come when I will bring back the humiliation I have suffered.’
If there is anything that So Mu-sang gains when he enters Bukcheonmun, it is his patience. If you persevere, the opportunity will come one day. If you can’t stand it and act recklessly, it’s you who ultimately loses and gets hurt.
So Mu-won thought of Jin Mu-won.
He’s been watching him for the past three years. The situation he was in was several times worse than his own. Still, he never saw Jin Mu-won feel desperate or give up on himself.
At first he thought it was the detachment of the one who had let everything go. But as he jumped over the wall, he seemed to be able to see how strong his patience was.
Suddenly he lifted his head and looked up at the sky.
‘Is that really him?’
These days, a thought suddenly occurred to me.
He wondered if Jin Mu-won was the owner of the voice that saved him at that moment when he was lost in Simma.
It’s not like there’s a problem or a heart attack. Under the circumstances, you can’t help but think that way.
The warriors who could give him enlightenment were those of Simwon and his subordinates. It was after he attained enlightenment that Damsucheon, called a rare genius, entered the Bukcheonmun Gate.
In the end, after excluding all possibilities, only Jin Mu-won was left.
‘Is he really right? Does he mean that he is strong enough to give me enlightenment?’
He is a free-spirited cow who shakes his head at the conclusions he has drawn. That’s because it’s not realistic.
‘If he really mastered that strong martial arts, wouldn’t he have no reason to suffer so much in the first place?’
Jin Mu-won was kidnapped by Jang Pae-san and even tortured. It was then that he clearly confirmed that he had not mastered martial arts. So it was even more confusing.
It was when Sang Sang So shook his head in confusion.
The enemy came running with his patronage.
“What’s going on?”
“All the captains gather.”
“I have something to tell you.”
Somu-sang furrowed his brow.
After he decided to follow Shen Yui, Zhang Pai-san completely became his vassal. It was his subordinates who died because of it. Mu-sang So, the assistant captain, was doing well, but the rest of the crew were dying to keep up with the whims of Shim Won-eui and Jang Pae-san.
Somu let out a sigh.
I was already worried about what I was going to talk about today.
Damsucheon returned with a strong lingering impression on Jin Mu-won and Eun Han-seol. After he returned, the two remained silent for a while.
In particular, Eun Han-seol had to suffer because it could not calm the waves that were boiling for a while after the fresh water stream went out. That is why it was a big shock to the freshwater stream.
When I faced the freshwater stream, I understood what the commander was saying.
‘I think there is such a man in the world.’
Its intense prayer and presence made it difficult to breathe even with the supreme silence of the world. The fact that such an uninhabited man existed at the same time as him stimulated Eun Han-seol’s fighting spirit.
Eun Han-seol took great pride in his martial arts. He mastered one of the strongest martial arts in the world, and his achievements were also outstanding.
So he was confident that there would be few who could outperform him among his peers. However, the fresh water stream forced her to correct her pride and arrogance.
‘There must have been a reason why the spirit praised him so much.’
Like an exploding volcano, intense prayers and impressions seemed to remain in my heart for a long time. This man was the first.
Suddenly Eun Han-seol looked at Jin Mu-won.
Mu-won Jin was looking out of his window, holding a teacup as if lost in thought. It was assumed that Muwon Jin must have been as shocked as he was.
That was then. Jin Mu-won turned his head to face Eun Han Seol. The moment she met Jin Mu-won’s deep eyes, Eun Han-seol realized that her worries were Ki-woo.
Contrary to her worries, Jin Mu-won didn’t look so shocked. Eun Han-seol thought I was lucky.
Jin Muwon smiled and opened his mouth.
“Is it because of me?”
“… … .”
“Did you come running because you were afraid that I might get hurt again?”
“Nothing… … It’s not like that.”
Suddenly, Jin Mu-won reached out to Eun Han-seol. In his hand is a necklace.
Eun Han Seol carefully opened his collar.
Seol’s eyes fluttered as he looked inside his neck.
A single flower was blooming inside his neckerchief. The silver-colored flowers were full of vitality, as if they would attract bees and butterflies at any moment.
The flower-shaped ornaments worn on the head were made by Jinmuwon before the freshwater stream came.
“me… … Are you giving it to me?”
Jin Mu-won nodded his head without saying a word.
Eun Han-seol quickly bowed her head at that sight. Both of her eyes were brimming with wet tears.
It is the first gift you receive from someone. Strength entered her hand that grabbed the jewelry.
“Would you like to put it on your head?”
At Jin Mu-won’s words, she put an ornament on her head. Then, a bright smile appeared on Jin Mu-won’s face.
“matches well. Pretty.”
Jin Mu-won nodded her head.
“I made it in a hurry, so please understand even if it’s crude. Before we parted, I wanted to give you something.”
Jin Mu-won is sincere. When he heard that the breakup was not far away from Eun Han-seol, he felt a great sense of loss as if his heart was pierced.
It was then that I realized That the Eun Han Seol settled in his chest bigger than he thought. He wanted to give something if he couldn’t postpone the parting. So what I came up with was an ornament.
It is the best he can create at the moment, and it is a work that contains the hard work of the past few days and his heart as it is.
He didn’t know it when we first met. I never thought Eun Han-seol would occupy such a big place. So the little time left was felt more precious.
‘If only I had more power… … .’
I honestly didn’t want to let go.
If I could do it, if I had more strength, I would have grabbed it somehow. But it was practically impossible. He doesn’t know what his own tomorrow will be like right now, but he couldn’t hold on to Eun Han Seol because of his own greed.
Eun Han Seol pulled out the jewelry and held it tightly in his two hands.
It is the first gift you receive from someone in your life. Jin Mu-won was her first man to give her her present.
☆ ☆ ☆
Eun Han-seol, who returned to her residence, could not sleep easily. In her hand was an ornament given by Jin Mu-won. With so much tinkering, her flower-shaped ornaments were already stained with her hands.
In the end, Eun Han-seol gave up on sleeping and woke up.
She opened her window wide and cold air rushed into her room. He took a few deep breaths and his head seemed to clear up.
Eun Han-seol blankly looked at the jewelry that Jin Mu-won had given him. Each petal was overflowing with vitality as if it were alive.
It vividly conveyed how much effort Jin Muwon had put into making this.
“radish… … one.”
His heart pounded and his face flushed.
Eun Han-seol was perplexed by the emotions he couldn’t understand himself. But he didn’t feel bad about it.
That was then.
I felt an unfamiliar presence. In an instant, her expression became extremely cold. The moment she gathered the power in her hands, someone appeared in her room without a sound.
The moment he saw the black shadow that he did not know whether it was a man or a woman, Eun Han-seol made a welcome expression.
“Spirit, you are back.”
As her spirit knelt before her on one knee, her soft speculation lifted her up.
“I’m back already, is there something bad going on?”
The spirit gently shook her head.
“Your master has told you to deliver the message that you will be here soon.”
“The master himself?”
“I don’t know the details, but it seems that the situation is not serious.”
All of a sudden, the spirit’s gaze turned to the ornament Eun Hanseol was holding.
“I don’t care.”
Eun Han-seol put the ornaments in her arms. At him, the spirit stared at Eun Han-seol. However, Eun Han-seol made an effortless expression on her face.
“Keep in mind. Soju is our hope. You can’t do it if you have personal feelings.”
“It won’t happen.”
At that moment, the spirit’s voice, which had only been hard, softened a little.
It had been a long time since the ghost came out. The red lips that were exposed through the pressed blood wind twisted.
He instinctively felt the change of Eunhanseol. It is a command that she has been watching since her childhood. Eun Han Seol knew more about her than she did herself.
Suddenly, the sound of grinding teeth was heard as he rubbed the ghost’s lips.
