me in the stomach.

Puck!

“Kuak!”

I fell back as pain burst from my stomach.
If I had practiced martial arts or internal qi, I would have been able to endure it by applying the qi to my stomach, but I was just a normal man.

And normal people had difficulty breathing when they got hit in their stomach.

“Cough! Cough!”

I suffered from shortness of breath as I continued to cough.
Then the masked man frowned.

“What? You couldn’t avoid this?”

He seemed to think that I should have dodged his kick.

-Idiot.
How can you fall for such a low-level kick?

The dagger decided that criticizing me right now was the most amazing thing.
Still, I was already in pain so responding to it was impossible.
In a situation where tears were forming in my eyes, the masked man decided to come for me.

-Avoid it! Run!

The dagger called out, but I could do nothing.
It was impossible for a body that was hit and unable to breathe to even move.

“Kuak!”

As I suffered a blow to my head, my consciousness began to fade.
I had struggled so hard to not get caught by these people.
Yet like in my previous life, I couldn’t even escape from the inn.

I didn’t know how much time had passed.
The sound of voices in the air gradually reached me as my mind regained consciousness.

“Two of them were killed by this kid? Can’t the captain handle his men properly?”

I heard mumbles all around.

Looks like I was finally captured after I fainted.
I woke up but focused on the voices without opening my eyes to understand the situation better.

“I am sorry.
Please punish me.”

“Uh!’

Puck!

A muffled groan.
The person that asked for punishment seemed to have been hit and fallen to the ground.

“Don’t act and get up.”

“Yes.”

“What is his true identity?”

“These are the things he had.
He had a plaque, an old dagger, and six silvers.”

“Whose child is he?”

This was bad!

I kept thinking as I kept my eyes closed.

Eventually, my name was going to be known to them once again.

“He is the son of the So family of Yullang.
His name is So Wonhwi.”

“Yullang’s So family… wait, Yiyang So family!”

Yiyang So family!

In Murim, there were families who have fame as great as the top martial arts families.
Among them, my family, the Yiyang So family, was one of the three most prestigious families in Honam.

“What? So, was this guy the trash which was kicked out of the Yiyang So family?”

Despite my pretending to be unconscious, wasn’t it too much to call me trash when I was right here! I am angry.

But this was the truth.
The current me was trash which cannot even be seen as a child of that family.

“Given his age, it seems to be true.”

“They say he is trash who cannot even learn to cultivate qi.
Who wouldn’t abandon him? But he manages to take down two of our warriors?”

While having a person who seemed to have been their superior say this felt nice, it didn’t give me any pleasant feelings.
I killed two of his men, which meant my current situation was dangerous.

“And he did this with just this rusted dagger? If he mastered qi, he would have been quite useful.’

A voice tinged with regret.

The same situation as before.
At that time, I was treated like trash, just like at my family’s home.

Still, I got a decently high evaluation.
It seemed like they wouldn’t try to kill me.
Just as that wishful thought entered my mind, I heard…

“Unfortunately, we need to kill him.”

‘… what!’

I flinched at his words that seemed to seal my fate.
This was an entirely different situation from before.

“Uh? He should be around the secondary level.”

“I lost two people who worked for me, so I now have to take the one who took them out and use them? Definitely not.
Just deal with him quickly.”

Apparently, the masked men I killed seemed to be people their superior cherished.
It was totally unexpected.

I had barely survived and returned to the past, but now I have to die again?! As I thought this, I heard a sound.

Tak!

Something flew and hit my head.

“Ouch!”

I groaned as I opened my eyes from the pain.
Around me, ten masked men were looking at me.

Among them, a middle-aged man with a blue belt and a long scar near his lip was shaking his head.

‘That’s the leader!’

The blue belt symbolized someone in the status of sect leader in the Blood Cult.
It is a position that could only be touched by climbing the best form of any martial arts in the cult, similar to a first-rate warrior.

Looking at the fingers of the leader, I felt weird.

“When you wake up, you need to open your eyes.
But here you are eavesdropping on me like a rat.”

He caught me.

The leader pretended to slash his neck with his hand.

Srng!

The two masked men near me drew their blades and swords.

They seemed like ones who would like to cut my throat at any moment.

Pak!

‘Shit!’

I was tied up with a rope.
I couldn’t even run away.
I was just like an animal ready to be sacrificed.
I was in a situation where everyone was watching me with the urge to decapitate my head.

Then my eyes moved towards a masked man standing behind the leader.

To be precise, my eyes moved to the white band, more like a white tassel at the sword at the waist of the man, which was clearly visible to me.

“Pain is fleeting.”

The moment the masked man raised his blade to cut my head, I pounded my head on the ground and shouted loudly as if I was possessed.

Thud!

“Blood Demon King! Fourth Blood Star! Long live and prosper the Blood Cult! This lowly person greets a prominent person of the Blood Cult!”

Whisper.

As soon as I said it, the masked men all looked at the person I was seeing.
It was the same with the man with the scar.
The masked man standing behind him looked flustered and took off his mask.
His handsome face was accentuated with sharp features, like that of a sword.

“Uh?”

The leader and the other masked men quickly knelt down after being momentarily shocked at seeing the man there.

“Fourth Blood Star, we greet you!”

The person who was also known as the Killing Blood King opened his mouth.

“Interesting.”

The object of his interest was me.
