Chapter 163 For the North Queen

“I still don’t understand what he is thinking about this time . ”

“Me too, but since he has said so, we need to follow…”

Wintergarden was the central city of the north, and Oh Inhwan, who was one of the high-cla.s.s members of the Cold Wind Guild, one of the most famous there, spoke like something irritated him .

“Even though she is strong and has many achievements, she has been working for only over three years now . How can he say that he will bow and go under her? It doesn’t make sense . ”

Another high-cla.s.s member of the guild, s.h.i.+n Taeksoo, answered him .

“We have to acknowledge that she has some notable achievements under her belt since she is the one who began to integrate the scattered northern forces . She has conquered numerous dungeons and magical beasts like she knows the future, and since she has solved all of the north’s problems, I understand what the leader is saying . ”

“That is true, but there are rumors that say that our leader has fallen in love with her . Don’t you know Choi Seulgi, the thief who works under Cold Spear Han Sohye…?”

“Oh Inhwan, watch your words . ”

“I’m not criticizing our leader, but isn’t it strange that he made the decision after having a meeting with a clan executive and not even a clan master? I cannot imagine our leader being led by a woman, but she was a strange one . ”

“Their meeting is not related to this issue, even if it may have helped him reach a decision…You know that he had been observing Cold Spear for a while now . ”

“That is right, but…”

“Don’t make me speak the same thing twice . He said that we may go if we did not like his decisions, and it is true for us executives . Whatever the reason, we follow him, and that’s what we can do for someone who had taken in and nurtured people like us . ”

“I know that well, but . . ”

Oh Inhwan bit his lips because he wanted to follow his leader, the North Knight Kang Changhoon, who had worked the north from the bottom up . He was the central figure in protecting northern parts while battling monsters and had helped a desperate Oh Inhwan to become a man . Everyone living in the north would have received help from Kang Changhoon .

It was electrifying news when the North Knight had announced that he would go under a new clan, and many small cities argued that Han Sohye should become queen, and they were currently waiting for a ceremony .

Oh Inhwan slowly began to think about Han Sohye, the Cold Spear . He had only seen her from afar, but he knew that she was strong . However, it was evident that Kang Changhoon was stronger, and while the Knight had spoken to his executives about her capacity as a leader, Oh Inhwan did not think much of her . He found it difficult to understand that the ten small cities protecting the north supported Han Sohye, and that may mean that she had more power, leaders.h.i.+p, and cla.s.s than what three years would bring .

However, Oh Inhwan’s thoughts turned to Choi Seulgi, who worked for the Cold Spear . While she had been smiling, Oh Inhwan had been a lowlife for a long time and thought her smile unnatural . While he may have made a mistake, he thought he saw madness in Choi Seulgi’s eyes, as people with similar glints did something dangerous .

They would do anything to achieve their aim, and he suspected Han Sohye because she had such a person as her right hand . However, Oh Inhwan bit his lips again .

Kang Changhoon had said that anyone who disagreed could go out of the guild with some funds, but Oh Inhwan thought no one in his guild would do so . He sighed, and s.h.i.+n Taeksoo opened his mouth .

“Let’s go out . Our leader is calling us . ”

The dice had been already cast, and Oh Inhwan nodded .

“I understand . ”

Kang Changhoon was sitting in the middle of the Cold Wind’s meeting room, and other executives sat behind him . While s.h.i.+n Taeksoo and a few others seemed nonchalant, most of them were dissatisfied like Oh Inhwan . However, everyone was present, and Kang Changhoon bowed his head .

“Everyone came . I thank you all for accepting my decision . ”

“No . While we are not that happy, we have pledged undying loyalty to you . We follow your will in all decisions . ”

“We will go down the same path . ”

The North Knight looked at each executive with a straight gaze .

“We have done much together and made a city to protect . While I am at a position where I am respected by all, I feel my limits . ”

“You are not at all such a man . ”

“Everyone has limits, and so does the woman I have decided to follow . However, she is different . I thought that anyone could become king and had thought so in the position granted in this city . However, I saw that Han Sohye is different because she was born a queen . I could have excluded her or go up higher like some of you wanted me to, but the position does not suit me and is actually burdensome . ”


“I’m sorry that I am not ambitious, and thank you all for coming . ”

Oh Inhwan found himself nodding because he felt Kang Changhoon’s sincerity in his actions . The North Knight had always been humble and thought of others first while protecting them .

“No, I understand your intentions, and we all will go wherever you go . ”

“You have saved me from h.e.l.l, and I will support and follow you anywhere . ”

“You do not need to bow . ”

The North Knight stood up amidst such words, as the Cold Wind Guild will be officially no more . They will become part of the Winter Clan led by Han Sohye, which will become Winter Guild now .

“Then, let’s go . ”

The former king began to walk slowly, and the executives all followed him . Oh Inhwan remembered when they all went out for a hunt in the past, as they had not gathered together at once to walk outside in a long time .

He saw a crowd outside the castle, and Oh Inhwan continued to look around . Every guild master from the small cities were all present, and the North Knight’s official announcement would have brought them here . The guild masters from the Mistletoe Guild, the Ice Giant Guild, and the Frost Dragon Guild that did not usually show up were all there .

‘The North Knight now bows to the Cold Spear . ’

The sentence was loaded with meaning, as no one could talk lightly of Han Sohye now . However, that would not be all, as such a gathering would not have been possible if she did not possess a quality that attracted people .

Oh Inhwan had to acknowledge that the scale had gone up than he had thought, and he heard himself gulp . Everyone now waited for the Cold Spear who would come them .

It was then the sound of the bone trumpets rang to announce that Han Sohye had entered Wintergarden . While Oh Inhwan expected cheers, the ceremony was quite serious . He could not see her yet but thought that the air had become heavier just by her arrival .

He felt the pressure build as Han Sohye came nearer, and Oh Inhwan focused a bit of magic in his eyes to look at other guild masters waiting for her .

He saw that everyone was kneeling to wait for Han Sohye .


Oh Inhwan thought that everyone may have been brainwashed, as Han Sohye was a rookie even if she was called a genius . However, such thoughts instantly disappeared when he saw her walking towards them, as the air around her was fearsome . It was not magic, and he remembered Kang Changhoon saying that she was born a queen .

It was true . Her eyes looking down on them, and her slow walk reminded Oh Inhwan of royalty in history books . He did not feel it because everyone was kneeling and thought her appearance quite shabby . She did not look fearsome except for the blue spear behind her back .

However, she had an aura and something that made other people’s hearts beat faster . Oh Inhwn was not the only one, and it was a different feeling from looking up to Kang Changhoon .

‘I want to follow her . ’

Oh Inhwan was thinking such things, and her heavy footsteps shook his body . The warriors following Han Sohye were walking a few steps behind her like she was their queen .

At last, the new North Queen arrived in front of the castle and looked at everyone . Oh Inhwan was kneeling by then, and she did not speak . She only took out her spear and struck the floor . Shouts rang, and the North Knight spoke first .

“For the North Queen!”

“I pledge my sword for the North Queen!”

“I pledge my spear the North Queen!”

“I pledge my s.h.i.+eld the North Queen!”

Oh Inhwan shuddered at the thought that everyone was looking at the new ruler of the north . They were making history, and Oh Inhwan also shouted for the North Queen while holding up his sword .
