160 Part 1
Chapter 160 As a Demon (2)
“I had warned you, my daughter…”
No more words were needed . Jang Ye Ri picked up the Reaper’s Scythe and slowly stared at the monster . He was bigger than most humans, and while his slightly bent back made him look a bit smaller, he was still one of the strongest in the city . He was a close combat warrior who did not use weapons, and his body harder than an ogre was still that of the monster she had heard about . His special ability was physical reinforcement, and a long-term battle that kept him at bay from afar was Jang Ye Ri’s plan against the old king .
‘Idiots . ’
While she had not expected much from her shaking brother and the already dead Kim Huiyeong, they seemed to have not damaged Jang Gi Young much . They would have barely managed to tire him out a little .
‘I will win . ’
She could not lose, and while it was an individual battle, too much blood had been shed for this fight . Jang Ye Ri moved not only for those who had suffered but also for those who were still fighting at this moment .
The Reaper’s Scythe enabled her to cut through s.p.a.ce and attack from afar but took much magic . However, the weapon was more benevolent to its owner, and the weapon showed a maximum effect with minimal magic loss .
She pushed with magic and swung with the scythe, and an invisible slicing wave flew . She heard the s.p.a.ce rip, and the air opened .
“Stupid . ”
However, it was blocked with Jang Gi Young’s armored body . She had expected that and was not surprised . There was still time . The attack had begun the battle, and since she had to use s.p.a.ce widely, Jang Ye Ri began to cut through everything in sight . The fallen king came running to Jang Ye Ri with magic emitting from him .
‘He is fast . ’
While she did not think that he would be slow, he was faster than she had expected .
The spell burst and something indescribable and black came from the ground and opened its teeth to target the king, but his magic made it a rag . Jang Ye Ri was still calm as she had summoned it to earn time . She continued to move and swing the Reaper’s Scythe . The blue sky showed itself from her attacks that cut through the building .
While Jang Gi Hoo ran away screaming like he could not endure this any longer, but she paid no attention . He would be a prize she could get after defeating Jang Gi Young . Now was the time to concentrate on the fight .
“It’s a shame…it is! You’re different from that screaming failure! I wish you were truly human . Those horns still on you are the problem . I’ll rip them out and make you your mother! With you and me, I can make a stronger offspring!”
“Nonsense . ”
“Come here, lovely daughter!”
The attacks from the Reaper’s Scythe that felt like they could cut through anything were so easily blocked by him . While she had slowed him down, the old king approached Jang Ye Ri quickly, and she could see the punch filled with magic enough to kill .
Jang Ye Ri summoned the dark monsters again, and the lithe beasts popped up everywhere to hold Jang Gi Young’s arm back .
“Die . ”
If the attacks did not work, she would slice him upfront . Jang Ye Ri acted on the crack the beasts had made and swung her scythe at his arm .
‘It won’t go in . ’
She made a quick decision and stepped back immediately to cut s.p.a.ce . She had no rules and used the long-distance attacks to block the old king from coming at her and used spells to block his path . Jang Ye Ri also used anything she could use in the room .
Jang Ye Ri continued to cut her surroundings, and while it was a large room, it was too narrow for her . She realized now that she had to use the entire castle . Jang Ye Ri placed the old king in her sights and swung the scythe using magic, and now her father’s two arms were wounded .
‘It’s effective . ’
He is human, and therefore could be wounded . Like water drops making a hole in the boulder, she was wounding him . Jang Ye Ri jumped up to avoid the old king rus.h.i.+ng at her in anger .
She felt afloat and swung her scythe towards the old king, and the floor that supported him began to crumble soon .
While he was falling down, he would not die and not even be damaged since he would have fallen only a story . Jang Ye Ri continued to swing the Reaper’s Scythe as she fell from the air .
She let out a rare shout and continued to cut through s.p.a.ce . Dust that rose from the floor crumbling were instantaneously cut . Tens of attacks were being concentrated on her father as he was standing up, and while he was protecting himself with both arms, there was damage .
“You are remarkable! Efficient! You can be called my daughter!”
“You crazy b.a.s.t.a.r.d!”
Just before she fell on the floor, Jang Ye Ri hung the scythe on the wall next to her to break it and get out with as the building rumbled .
While many gazes, including Park Han Cheol’s, looked at her, she had to concentrate now . She cut into s.p.a.ce a bit away from where the monster was and went inside . The old king would not know where she was, and as she also could not attack if she did not have eyes and clear direction, Jang Ye Ri summoned what she had prepared .
Small beasts jumped out, covered in darkness . While they did not have special abilities, she could share their eyes and be extremely effective in fights like this .
Jang Ye Ri continued to cut through s.p.a.ce from where she could not be seen and also continued to move her position while using simple magic to confuse her opponent . She had undergone simulations for this fight countless times right after she could fight . Jang Ye Ri was prepared, unlike Jang Gi Young, for this fight .
160 Part 2
She swung the scythe and cast spells since it was more effective to wound him with the beasts . As the old king rushed at her from the castle wall next to her, Jang Ye Ri cast the spell that she had prepared .
With a roar, s.p.a.ce opened from Jang Ye Ri’s back, and a huge beast’s mouth reached out and opened to swallow the old king whole .
“Die, you dirty b.a.s.t.a.r.d!”
“This is nice!”
She had taken time to summon it, and the spell was one of her more powerful ones . While the dark form did not have eyes, it flared its nostrils and opened its large mouth wide and charged Jang Gi Young like it would chew him whole . As the beast twisted its neck to bite the right and left, Jang Ye Ri heard multiple explosions . Magic was clas.h.i.+ng against magic, and things around her were flying around . Jang Ye Ri maintained magic in one hand and shuddered to fist her hand . Since she had given everything to the attack, it seemed to be a burden to the fallen king, and she could see Jang Gi Young blocking the beast’s teeth .
Jang Ye Ri stepped back and continued to swing the scythe . More holes appeared through which she could see the sky, and the castle that had imprisoned and tormented the young Jang Ye Ri was slowly crumbling .
While loud bangs rang in her ears, the old king was still blocking the still shouting beast’s teeth . Jang Gi Young was smiling in joy as he ripped the beast’s mouth .
‘The monster . ’
Jang Ye Ri gulped . She had prepared a lot for this day and quickly pulled back as the old king followed her . His punch was filled with magic and would be fatal with one accurate hit . Jang Ye Ri activated another skill of the Reaper’s Scythe just before the attack reached her .
‘Spectralization . ’
She could use magic to disable the opponent and render him unable to attack . Jang Ye Ri thought she would take a hit and head to the castle gates’ outer walls .
However, it was then the heavy punch that should have not hit her knocked her out in the stomach .
Her body crashed into the wall as blood and indescribable fluids came out of her mouth . If Jang Ye Ri had not protected herself with magic at that moment, she might have been killed . More than that, Jang Gi Young had clearly weakened his punch at the last moment .
He was trying not to kill her, and while she had received much damage, it was good news for her .
“I’m disciplining you in a long time . ”
Jang Ye Ri quickly cast a healing spell as she saw the old king come near her . While it was not divine healing, she needed to heal since the damage was serious . She woke up slowly, but the wound was larger than she had expected . Her legs weakened despite her will .
The old king came to her and looked down at Jang Ye Ri with a fishy smile .
“You seem to have not inherited a durable body…you poor thing . ”
Jang Gi Young lifted Jang Ye Ri’s two hands, and she had to stare and watch him speak .
“You really do look like your mother after all this time . While she was disposable, your mother was the most useful out of those I had devoured . ”
Jang Ye Ri spat at him .
“Your personality takes after your mother . Yes, this is quite exciting . Your mother had been the same . She was quite interesting as she growled and resisted me . However, after I beat her up a few times and had her, she could not speak or even walk well . She would come to me first, and it had been fun then…”
“You crazy b.a.s.t.a.r.d . ”
“While I had not understood her, your mother would have said the same thing, my daughter . ”
Jang Ye Ri stared at the old king with clenched teeth . She glared at him and saw that his large hand reach for her face . While she had been only slapped, her torse twisted sideways . Her mouth burst, and she felt some of her teeth were missing . Her brain shook, and she felt a bit faint even as she tried to stay conscious .
‘It hurts . ’
Tears welled up in Jang Ye Ri’s eyes, and they were not from pain . She cried because her mother would have been the victim of these fists many times .
“You’re weaker than you look . Your mother did not cry . ”
“Shut up, you worthless creature . ”
“Come to think of it, she did cry once…”
“It was when I had separated her from you right after you were born . It was quite a sight seeing her cry and shout . While you may not remember, she could rush at me even though she could not walk . So, I gave my underlings her for three days . Your father’s chest hurt at her crying and shouting incoherent words…”
“Don’t be jealous, as I’ll send you on your mother’s end . What had been the problem? Since your body’s healthy, you will give birth to a healthy child…how to solve that that rebelling tendency…those horns are the problem…hmm…”
“I will slit your stomach and choke you with your intestines! You beast…”
“I thought I lost my libido, but human minds are strange…I keep thinking of that time…”
Jang Ye Ri glared at the old king even as his vile hands touched her chest . The battle was not over . The old king was playing with her, and that meant that there was still a chance . If she endured this once, there would be an opportunity . Jang Ye Ri repeated the words in her head and closed her eyes .
She felt a hand touch her nether regions, but she did not respond . She was used to this and had not cried when her brother had violated her for the first time . However, now she felt the tears well up in her eyes . She had been determined to not think of anything, but now she felt strange guilt .
Jang Ye Ri was thinking of someone in her mind . It was then a loud explosion rang the room .
She felt that the temperature had risen in the room, and she had to open her eyes . Jang Ye Ri first saw the old king looking sideways, and following his gaze, she saw a dark form wrapped in a large flame .
She saw the shadows of multiple weapons behind his back and straight horns on his head .
“He was a complete b.a.s.t.a.r.d . ”
A Green Skin demon appeared through the flames . Jang Ye RI opened her eyes wide, and while she wanted to say that he was not the demon’s opponent, she could not voice a word .
“I came to take you back . ”
Jang Ye Ri nodded at the words .
