Chapter 8 : First battle (6)
While Roan was stabbing the charging goblins, the goblin leader cut off the necks of various spearmen and swordsmen.
A cry that even stole the vigor of the battle.
And then, the soldiers that were charging without thinking of anything started to fall back.
The goblin leader filled up with vigor when he saw them.
A cry that implied that humans weren’t even a match.
The guys dual blades cuts off the air.
The narrow eyed soldier closed his eyes when he looked at the blades coming to him.
The moment he experienced death.
But then, a clashing sound was heard near his ear.
And the voice that rang at the same time.
“Fall to the back!”
The narrow eyed soldier slowly opened his eyes and looked in front of him.
The owner of the voice was a spearman with a childish face.
It was Roan.
The soldier fell back as if he was running because he was relieved that he had survived.
After a space was created between Roan to swing his spear, he put a somewhat fishy smile.
“It’s been a while. It’s been 20 years.”
The goblin leader contorted his face and cried out.
‘Right. There’s no way for you to remember me.’
Roan smirked and charged.
The tips of his spear was looking to pierce the chest of that bastard.
A cry as if it was making fun of him.
It swung its dual blades lightly and fended off the spear.
‘Kugh. His strength is certainly good.’
Roan clenched his teeth because of the strength that was transmitted through his hands.
If it was prolonged, a not favorable fight.
‘With my current state, I can only exchange a few blows.’
But even so, the reason he charged in so confidently.
‘I will show you one deadly attack.’
The many spear skills in his memories.
However, he couldn’t use them all.
The strongest spear skill he could use right now.
‘The three stances Pierce taught me.’
Pierce’s spearmanship originated after he got taught by Reil Baker, and devised for the battles they confronted together.
Because they confronted normal soldiers, it was still powerful even if it didn’t use mana.
‘I have only one chance. More than that is hard for me.’
Thinking about the state of his palms, the strength of his grip and his physical strength, he could only execute this stance once.
‘I have to look for the perfect opportunity.’
Roan’s spear shook and sliced off the air.
The goblin leader showed an annoyed expression at the spear that brandished him without stop.
It raised his dual blades so high to try to cut off the spear.
The body that was exposed in an instant.
Roan gripped harder and forcefuly pulled back his spear.
The pain of his palms tearing.
However, Roan’s movements didn’t falter.
The spear that was pulled back to his waist, stabbed onto the body of the goblin leader.
It got momentarily perplexed, but he snorted and quickly struck down with his blades.
Right before the two swords met the spear.
The stiff spear bent like a snake.
At the same moment, the spear rose to the skies.
The spear passed by the two swords and rushed into the neck of the goblin.
The goblin leader opened his eyes roundly at the spear that was bending in an impossible angle.
Roan’s tip of the spear pierced through the neck of the goblin.
Growling sounds and the falling goblin leader.
Roan pulled the spear in his throat and frowned.
A painful sound was heard.
He looked down at his palms.
His skin was peeled off and blood flowed.
His limp palms couldn’t stand the fierce and strong spear skills of Pierce.
‘It’s really a mess.’
Of course, in his past life, he couldn’t execute it more than 5 times consecutively.
No, even doing it 5 times made his entire body hurt.
It was a skill that was hard for your body, but it was that much effective.
Roan looked at the goblin leader that was collapsed in the floor and smiled.
Not a bad harvest for the first battle.
Looking at the big hole in his throat, he admired Pierce’s talent more.
‘For a stance that was created in the middle of resting to be this much.’
It was at that moment when he was admiring the difference in abilities.
The stance he barely executed after having his palms ripped, Pierce executed it without even shedding a drop of sweat.
‘In this life I will certainly close that gap.’
Roan determined once again and after cutting off the neck of the goblin leader, he extended it up to the skies.
“Spearman Roan from the 13th squad! I cut off the neck of the goblin leader!”
A loud voice.
Even if he didn’t do that, the soldiers that were looking at their fight raised their weapons and yelled.
The atmosphere of the battlefield changed in an instant.
The goblins that lost their leader, didn’t know what to do.
The morale was so low it reached ground, and they just looked to run away.
In the other hand, the morale of the soldiers of rose troop was as high as the sky.
At the attacks of the rose troop, the goblins fell without resisting.
After Roan tied the head of the goblin leader in his waist, he returned to the 13th squad.
“You bastard! How can you run away as you please!”
Tane yelled as if he was waiting for it.
However, there was a faint smile in his face.
And that was because he had witnessed the scene of Roan piercing the neck of the goblin leader.
Roan bent down.
“Looking at my allies falling down, I just charged in on my own. I’m sorry.”
Tane wanted to say one more thing, but shook his head in the end.
“Be more careful next time.”
Roan bent his head and fell to the back.
The battle was already ending.
The goblins couldn’t even charge to where the 13th squad were.
Roan took out some bandages while looking at the battle.
“Want me to help you?”
A newcomer soldier just like him, that had white skin and big eyes asked with a preoccupied face.
Roan lent him the bandages as if he came just in time.
“Why, with this much.”
The white skinned and big eyed soldier embraced the spear with his armpit and bandaged him.
He bandaged him so meticulously Roan thought that he would be able to hold the spear immediately.
‘He is quite familiar……’
He was familiar.
A feeling he was forgetting of something important.
Roan tried to remember who was the man that was in front of him.
However, the newcomer soldiers that survived in his past life were only him and Pierce.
Because of that, he couldn’t remember the other newcomers.
‘But why is he so familiar?’
Roan that fell in his thoughts.
Then, the bandaging ended.
At that moment, his big fingers were caught in his eyes.
Roan let out a low exclamation.
“Huh? What happened? Is the bandage somewhat discomfortable?”
Asking because he was surprised.
Roan’s eyes shook.
The silhouette of a person passed by dimly through his eyes.
‘This guy was the oppa of that person.’
The face of a girl that filled his entire head.
Roan shook his head and just put on an awkward face.
He smiled brightly and lent out his hand.
“It’s nothing. Thank you. Glenn.”
The white skinned and big eyed soldier was called Glenn.
Who this guy was, and who his sister was.
