Chapter 168 – Great Guardian (2)
Seo Yong-chu, the Great Guardian, now had an expression of confusion which showed he didn’t really understand.
Killed Him and the vessels too?
Did he actually understand what they were saying? At his reaction, Mumu scratched his head.
“He doesn’t seem to believe it.”
At those words Kang Mui licked his lips and said,
“Would you believe it if it were you?”
“Is there anything to not believe in?”
“… I am just saying, you are just oddly strong.”

Kang Mui clicked his tongue at the attitude of Mumu which he could never understand.
Actually, the reaction of Seo Yong-chu was quite normal. Although the vessels of the man were known to have a part of his soul, he must have known that they cannot match the full extent of the man.
So who would believe that a kid of his killed Him and all his vessels?
Furthermore, wasn’t the role of Seo Yong-chu to protect the man who just got killed?
‘What is this?’
To him it was confusing. On the contrary, he thought the kids were joking.
At first he thought the man had recovered his vessel which was the best outcome to him. So he thought he should wait.
But, he knew the man he followed wasn’t the kind to joke like this.
A man of pride and arrogance due to his strength would never do such a thing.
Seo Yong-chu looked at Mumu and Kang Mui.
Despite losing an arm he had been the second in command 17 years ago, and even the Four Great Warriors were not able to openly subdue him.
‘This man identified himself as young lord Mui and he is truly known to be skilled but this one…’
No matter how much he tried, he couldn’t feel internal energy from Mumu. It seemed like he was just a first-rate warrior.
So how could he joke like this? Was there something he believed in?
‘… Let’s just test him.’
Seo Yong-chu made up his mind and was ready.
Despite the jade plaque being shown, no matter how he saw it, the actions of the man were too far to be accepted as his lord.
He stood tall and then Kang Mui asked,
“If you really don’t believe him…”
“If he really did handle the vessels of him alone, he would have to show it, and if so, he should show it to me.”
Kang Mui glanced at Mumu.
“Uh? But how do I show?”
As soon as he said it, Seo Yong-chu released the internal energy in his body.
As he raised the internal energy to the maximum, the wind around him began to tremble in all directions.
The eyes of Kang Mui shone at the force which made his hair stand up. This man had been around for a long time.
As the second in command, the martial arts he was known to have were truly amazing since many lost their lives to him.
‘So it wasn’t just a rumor.’
At this level, it was unclear whether Kang Mui could win even if he used the three types of qi he possessed.
No, it wasn’t unclear, he was bound to lose. And the man was worthy to be the second in command.
And Seo Yong-chu said,
“If you took HIM down, it will not be difficult to subdue me. HAH!”
He sprinted ahead and aimed for Mumu.
It was a swift movement that didn’t match well with the giant body he held. Along with the after images he was leaving, he appeared right in front of Mumu and swung his fist.
‘Giant Defeat Serving Fist!’
A huge wave of blue moved in the form of a fist. And it looked like a simple punch, but it held the power of the first fist of Shaolin.
And that blue fist energy moved to Mumu with the intent to take him down.
The power was so strong that the valley was split apart.
Seo Yong-chu doubted his eyes.
Mumu blocked it, and with just his index finger too. It was an enormous blow, but he didn’t even move back a single step.
He expected that if it was really enough to beat the vessel, he would be able to block, but what he showed was too much.
“Is this enough?”
At that question, Seo Yong-chu gulped trying to calm his heart and said,
“… Not yet.”
He did get a glimpse of the strength by blocking the attack with his finger. But from what he knew, each of those who had received a jade plaque had their own perfections.
And this Mumu could be having the strength of body.
And looking at the muscles exposed around the body, he felt sure of it.
“Then what do we do?”
“Try to take me down with a few attacks. Then I will be sure of it.”
His Lord had taken him down in one hit.
No, if the man set his mind to it, he wouldn’t even need a second. At least, if this kid was better or equal to him, he should be able to see that much or something close to it.
“Subdue at once?”
“If you can it would be nice…”
“It isn’t so difficult, but I am learning to control the bands so I cannot control my strength.”
At those words the man smirked and pounded his chest with his left fist and said,
“I have the Golden Body Arts completed and this body of mine has reached the level of unbreakable. Now, even if I lose, I am confident that I will not be hurt.”
“Oh. Is that so?”
“Of course, it isn’t like I am going to sacrifice it all with my own…”
Mumu’s right arm sleeve began to get torn as his muscles swelled up. Seeing that, Seo Yong-chu frowned.
It was because the moment the muscles of the right arm were swelling, he felt a strong sense of intimidation which he had never felt before. And at that moment—
Mumu held out his fist to the cliff, and as usual, the intense wind wave pierced the left side of it.
The wind pressure continued to spread, and though it was not enough to destroy the cliff, it soon pierced the air, and the clouds too.
There was a hole in the clouds. Looking at this, Seo Yong-chu’s face hardened and Kang Mui shook his head.
‘Tch tch… he should show it in moderation.’
Well, he thought that this much would be enough now. Looking at the dumbfounded figure of the Great Guardian, Mumu smiled.
“Since you are strong you can handle that much right?”
At that question, Seo Yong-chu gulped. He was surely amazing and skilled. But with just one punch, his body was sure to be smashed to death regardless of the technique he used.
Seo Yong-chu said,
“… Come to think, this is enough.”
Even his Lord wouldn’t be able to block this. And this didn’t seem like a lie anymore.
He actually felt bad for Mumu.
“Is this enough?”
At Seo Yong-chu’s words, kang Mui sighed and laughed.
Anyone would have to kneel in front of this walking disaster.
Great Guardian Seo Yong-chu opened his mouth while looking at the bonfire in front of the cave.
“You wanted to know about your mother?”
At Mumu’s words, Seo Yong-chu took a deep breath.
Actually, he made a promise to his Lord to never reveal this story to anyone.
He almost met with death trying to keep the promise, but even his Lord didn’t try to kill him after he almost spilled it out. Maybe it was because he had been by his side since the start.
No, the question asked was different now.
‘What Lord wanted then was to know of the Hae family woman who wanted to act like a child bearing woman.’
It was one of the Hae family women who gave birth to Supeme too. He turned to Mumu.
‘Right… if all the vessels are dead, then there is no need to keep the promise, and isn’t the young lord good enough?’
Even if it was from the family of his mother, Mumu has the blood of the Hae family and so they deserve the truth.
Seo Yong-chu, who looked at Mumu for a while, finally started talking.
“Young lord deserves to know.”
“You know about my mother?”
“… Yes. How can I not know?”
He didn’t know about the other women there, but he could remember her so clearly.
Unlike in the past, she was someone who followed his Lord on her own accord. Even if she was treated the same as others, she considered him as her husband.
Of course, to the Lord, she was just a womb to give birth.
‘Was it not so?’
If you think about it, maybe not.
The child she gave birth to wasn’t a great vessel. Despite having no talent, Mumu was given a jade plaque. It was a truly odd case.
‘I thought that at that moment he felt a little affection.’
She was a woman who made everyone feel nice, so with sad memories, he opened his mouth,
“Young lord, your mother is quite an odd person. She is someone who would never stop smiling no matter what.”
“Yes… and you are really similar.”
Mumu did resemble his mother. Seo Yong-chu put another branch into the bonfire.
“Your mother’s name.”
“Hae Ha-rang is my… mother’s name?”
“She is the elder daughter of this prestigious Hae family in Shaanxi province.”
Hearing about this mother for the first time made his eyes shine. It was the existence of the mother who he wanted to know about.
No matter how carefree he looked he was now trembling.
“Then my mother died in the castle that day?”
To that question, Seo Yong-chu said
“Your mother is alive.”
Mumu’s eyes trembled at this.
What did he just hear?
Mumu had learned of his father through many and assumed that his mother met a bad end.
Mumu’s voice trembled.
“… What do you mean by that?”
“It is as you heard. Your mother is alive.”
“The day the castle was burned to ashes by the Four Great Warriors…”
The Great Guardian recalled the memory.
It was of a body being carried on the shoulders of Hong Hwa-ryun.
