‘But... Isn’t this more based on feeling?’
The more Choi Yeonseung used Future Sight, the more confused he became. Was there any difference between this and relying on his intuition?
[The ‘Goddess of Balance Who Walks Ahead’ argues in a weak voice that even though it might seem like this, the power requires good judgment.]
-Ah... Yeah, I think so too. It’s a good power.
[The ‘Goddess of Balance Who Walks Ahead’ is smiling brightly.]
-If you regret calling the goddess of balance, blink twice.
The hunters in front of the Brucol Building were thrilled to see that Choi Yeonseung had actually shown up.
“Isn’t a duel too risky?”
“Hunter Choi Yeonseung, a duel is too dangerous even for you. It’s also not in the Otherworld. Is it worth it to risk your life for a senator?”
“Yeah, he’s just a senator. He seems to have only ten years left at best, so if he dies now, it’s still a natural death.”
“Shh, you dumbass! There are many ears listening.”
The hunters gathered at the scene tried to somehow persuade Choi Yeonseung not to participate in the duel. It was truly rare for a hunter to go out of their way to do something that didn’t benefit themselves, but another clan. However, this was exactly what Choi Yeonseung’s reputation was all about.
By the time hunters reached A-grade, they had already become very jealous and greedy and had built up many grudges during raids. There was also business on top of that, which doubled their notoriety.
Nevertheless, these hunters hadn’t realized just how popular and influential Choi Yeonseung really was. He was truly a one in a million case!
“I appreciate your concern, but I’ve already made up my mind. Get out of the way.”
The hunters of the Albuquerque clan were tearing up before they knew it. It was truly surprising for such cold-blooded hunters, who didn’t even cry when the stocks they had invested all their money into crashed, to cry for a hunter from a different clan.
‘I can’t believe he’s helping us like this!’
What made this even more surprising was the fact that the Albuquerque clan had nothing to do with Choi Yeonseung. In fact, the clans under Parker Group had an almost hostile relationship with Choi Yeonseung.
These hunters had even been ordered to keep Hunter Choi Yeonseung in check this time, which explained why they were so moved by his heroic gesture.
“Who are you?”
Choi Yeonseung was puzzled when he suddenly saw the hunters in front of him in tears.
“We... We’re from the Albuquerque clan.
“I’m sorry, but have we met before?”
The Albuquerque clan hunters were trying to remind Choi Yeonseung of their clan because they had a reputation, but they thought it would make them look bad so they gave up on it.
“...Please, Hunter Choi Yeonseung!”
“Please make up for our mistake...”
“Ah. Were you the hunters that were supposed to look after Senator McGlas? How incompetent were you guys to let him get kidnapped?”
The hunters decided that it was better for them to keep their mouths shut.
Most spectators would’ve said something like “Are you really going in?” but Choi Yeonseung didn’t give them the chance to do so as he immediately went inside the building. He could hear the loud voices from the shocked people behind him, but they quickly faded away.
[You have entered the realm of ‘Endless Linked Explosions.’]
The building was filled by an acrid smell resulting from numerous explosions. The building itself had been transformed into the realm of the explosion constellation, just like the realm that had unfolded when Noble Crown Collector had descended.
‘Of course, this one is much smaller than the one from back then...’
The collector constellation had been in his prime back then, whereas the explosion constellation was currently in a weakened state. Therefore, it made sense for this realm to be smaller.
You finally came.
“Indeed, here I am.”
The interior of the building was suddenly getting distorted. The ceiling of the hallway quickly disappeared and was replaced by an endless darkness. Then, Choi Yeonseung was met by an opponent he had never seen before.
‘Isn’t that a hunter?’
The silhouette was clearly of a human, and it wasn’t distorted at all. However, it had a powerful aura about it. Not even Hwang Gyeongryong, an S-grade hunter, had such an intense presence.
‘A normal human can’t become this strong no matter how hard they try. It’s the same for low-grade hunters...’
No matter how much power and how many skills a constellation bestowed upon a human, there was a limit to how strong they could become. You could pour a lot of magic power into a chick and it still wouldn’t turn into a dragon.
‘He would’ve had to pour his power into one of the highest-rated hunters to achieve this level, and yet I’ve never seen this person before...’
Do you know why I have declared a duel?
“I don’t know. Are you confident in one-on-one fights?”
You’re halfway there.
With this answer, the opponent’s power of existence was amplified. The surprising part was that the power wasn’t borrowed. Rather, the human figure used his own power!
Choi Yeonseung’s enemy displayed a power that only a constellation could wield.
It is because I am confident that I will win.
The explosion constellation smirked.
[The ‘Cat of Lava and Magma’ is surprised!]
[The ‘Manipulator of Dreams and Desires’ says she is speechless that a constellation would do such a thing!]
The watching constellations were all equally shocked.
The explosion constellation had descended on Earth disguised as a mortal. This was such a desperate and petty act from the explosion constellation that everyone was speechless.
Constellations were rulers, and they ought to die as such. Thus, nobody had expected that a constellation would hide in a building on Earth disguised as a mortal. If this incident became known in the Abyss, the explosion constellation would forever be ridiculed.
Shut up! You weak constellations are just chattering among yourselves instead of participating in this battle! the explosion constellation bellowed as if he himself knew how humiliating his tactic was.
This is fine as long as I win. Rather, it’s the constellations who care too much about meaningless restraints that are weak. I am a constellation who has evolved to the next level. Soon, all the constellations on Earth will be kneeling before me.
-To think you’d be this overconfident after casting away your pride and ruining your reputation...
The goddess of sloth thought the explosion constellation was pathetic.
Even during this conversation, Choi Yeonseung didn’t say a word, and the explosion constellation seemed to misunderstand the silence.
Hah, you realized it too late! Pay the price for believing in your small power and being arrogant in front of a constellation!
Along with those words, the explosion constellation used his power of existence to attack Choi Yeonseung. The attack was powerful enough to blow away an arm and a leg at the same time, so a mortal would have a hard time blocking it.
...But nothing happened to Choi Yeonseung.
The explosion constellation panicked and attacked again...
Still no effect.
[Your power of existence has empowered the Origin of the Celestial Divine Arts.]
[’Realm of Martial Arts’ has empowered your martial arts skills.]
[Origin of the Celestial Fist has penetrated the opponent’s very existence!]
There was a white flash and the explosion constellation flew backwards. He was distraught and confused due to the enormous shock that had shaken his very existence.
What had he been hit by?
What... What the... This is ridiculous! Wait... Don’t tell me??
“I’m sorry, explosion constellation, but I’m also confident that I’ll win.”
Choi Yeonseung decided to be honest with him. After all, would a human be crazy enough to go one-on-one against a constellation? A human would’ve had no idea what they would’ve been up against.
No matter how much he could predict the future, Choi Yeonseung had faced the explosion constellation because he was confident.
Despicable piece of trash! A constellation disguised as a human?! How many years has it been? How is this possible?! How?!! the explosion constellation shouted in astonishment. His human expression looked absolutely shocked.
Wait...! Do the other constellations clinging to you know this?
[The ‘Cat of Lava and Magma’ is looking the other way while wondering if this is the case.] 𝒍𝒊𝙗𝓻𝒆𝓪𝙙.𝙘𝙤𝙢
[The ‘Manipulator of Dreams and Desires’ says that you sometimes have to endure humiliation to achieve ultimate victory.]
[The ‘Goddess of Balance Who Walks Ahead’ harshly criticizes you for rebuking the Incarnation of Training when you did the same thing.]
The shamelessness of Choi Yeonseung’s allies angered the explosion constellation even more. However, he didn’t have time to be angry.
Once again, the explosion constellation was knocked back into the air.
Choi Yeonseung hadn’t merely been talking to the explosion constellation; he had been taunting him to make sure he wouldn’t be able to react to his next attack.
Fighting in the Abyss was more about ambushing your opponent than having a fair duel. Choi Yeonseung had been through so many fights that he was tired of them.
[’Dignity of Light’ has strengthened your martial arts.]
[’Realm of Nobility’ has strengthened your martial arts.]
[Origin of the Celestial Meteor Bombardment is tearing apart the opponent’s existence!]
The essence of internal energy, concentrated energy, decimated the explosion constellation.
The explosion constellation tried to defend himself and restore his body using the power of existence, but the Origin of the Celestial Meteor Bombardment boasted a deadly power. Moreover, the explosion constellation wasn’t specialized in defense or recovery, which put him at an even bigger disadvantage.
‘I looked down on him...!’
In the midst of his pain and dismay, the explosion constellation realized he had made a mistake. He couldn’t believe there was an even more horrible, despicable, and filthy being among the constellations.
Choi Yeonseung, or rather, the Undefeated Incarnation of Training was an ambitious constellation who had been hiding his enormous power. His quiet and mysterious image was merely a veneer that hid his ruthless nature.
The Undefeated Incarnation of Training had climbed the ranks on Earth extremely fast, and yet he had somehow managed to conceal his identity from the other constellations!
The beast had finally revealed his true form, and his power was unimaginable.
The power of existence he had honed, the fighting power he had hidden, and the powers he had obtained from other constellations through deception—the combination of these powers resulted in a monster that could overwhelm any constellation.
The moment Choi Yeonseung disappeared, the explosion constellation instinctively went on the defensive.
As his concentrated energy decimated the explosion constellation, Choi Yeonseung also jumped in to hit the explosion constellation directly.
[The ‘Explosions that Tears Through Space’...]
The explosion constellation struggled to use his power. He completely gave up on defending himself, letting his very existence get shredded, and instead aimed for Choi Yeonseung’s vital points. His attack had a terrifying destructive power.
However, Choi Yeonseung wasn’t fazed by it; he merely shook his head, predicted its path, and evaded it.
Choi Yeonseung had dealt with many fierce attacks in his numerous fights in the Abyss, so he knew how important it was not to get hit.
He continued to suppress the explosion constellation without giving him time to attack. His offense was unrelenting!
With multiple thuds and cracking sounds, the explosion constellation was blasted away. Every time he sent the explosion constellation flying, Choi Yeonseung got on top of him and struck him again before even landing on the ground.
Choi Yeonseung linked his Origin of the Celestial Divine Arts flawlessly. With every vicious attack, the existence of the explosion constellation was growing weaker and weaker.
-Don’t be fooled!
‘Of course, I don’t intend to listen to anything he has to say.’
Choi Yeonseung was going to end it here. He had no intention to listen to the explosion constellation beg for mercy. He had to eliminate his opponent now that he knew his true identity!
-Successor, you’re the only ruthless constellation disguised as a human! Finish him off!
Choi Yeonseung charged forward as he listened to the encouragement of the goddess of sloth. He dodged various explosions that went off at the same time and used the Origin of the Celestial Fist.
The explosion constellation crumbled as his existence was shattered.
There was a cracking sound and Choi Yeonseung’s attack pierced the torso of the explosion constellation. He could no longer withstand any of Choi Yeonseung’s attacks.
[’Endless Linked Explosions’ is defeated!]
[The existence of ‘Endless Linked Explosions’ will disappear!]
The explosion constellation stared at Choi Yeonseung with flickering flames in his eyes. These were the eyes of someone who had finally come to terms with their defeat.
It is my defeat... It is your despicable victory... Undefeated Incarnation of Training!
“As far as despicable goes...”
But don’t look down on the other constellations... There are many who are more despicable and evil than I am. You... I don’t know if you can beat them... Cough!
Choi Yeonseung didn’t want to hear it and swung his fist.
‘Even though he’s about to be gone, he’s still running his mouth uselessly.’
