The red haze created by the bonfire dispelled the darkness.
Luon, who looked at the flickering flame, took out the dried jerky from his bosom and poured it into his mouth.

It’s so tough.
The beef jerky dried with salt without spices was like rubber.
He was also annoyed by the disgusting smell coming up his nose.
The more he chewed, the more he missed the 6,000 won jerky that was hanging at the convenience store.
At the time, he even grumbled that it was expensive.

Luon still missed the 26 years of living in Korea.
It’s not the beef jerky that he enjoyed, but the life where he drank beer while chewing on delicious food.

Luon clenched his teeth at the memory that became clearer rather than worn out as time passed.


It was an unknown sob that put the brakes on Luon’s thoughts.

The eerie sobs, incompatible with the forest at night, were something that ordinary people would be terrified by, but Luon stood up without any hesitation.
Rather, there was a faint smile on his face.
Caught you.

“Oh, my!”

With silent footsteps, he approached the source of the sound and saw someone squatting under a large tree.

Its face was buried in its raised knee, so he couldn’t see its face, but its long hair and thin wrists and ankles made him guess that the opponent was a woman.

Are you all right? Instead of asking that, Luon drew a sword from his waist.
The sword gleamed and shimmered coolly in the moonlight.
The woman’s tears never stopped.


“You’re gonna try to fool me until the end, right?”

Luon smirked and put his other hand in his arms.
As soon as the dagger’s hard handle touched his fingertips, he stretched out his hand forward.
A dagger that flew through the wind is about to pierce the woman’s forehead.


Unbelievable sound of flesh and iron colliding resonated in the forest.
It was the woman’s thin arm that struck the dagger.
At the same time, the sobbing stopped.

It was Luon who broke the silence that had fallen in an instant.

“Stop acting ridiculous.”


With a sharp scream, the woman jumped to her feet and her face covered by the knees was revealed.
Her skin was as dry as a mummy, and maggots were falling from her eyes, as if they had been devoured by mice.

Luon’s forehead slowly narrowed at the horrific face.
At times like this, it’s annoying to have good eyes.


The woman, no, the monster screamed again and ran towards him.
The curse contained in the scream put pressure on Luon, but he let the intangible power flow into the air lightly as if brushing off dust.

The monster, which was waving its long limbs, crawled towards him and swung its hand.
Luon, who avoided the monster’s sharp claws by simply turning his head, raised the sword he had drawn earlier.


Luon kicked away the screaming monster in the chest, raised his arm and swung his sword hard.
The opposite arm of the monster, which lost its balance, was cut off.
Next is the chest.
Finally, the head.

In an instant, the monster’s severed body fell to the floor.

“Not bad.”

Luon smiled as he felt a gentle exaltation from deep inside.
He was a man with quite a bit of experience.

Luon, who found something shiny in the monster’s corpse, which had turned into gray powder like briquettes, reached out.
Bagging a rusty necklace, he fell on the floor, hoping for something more to come out of it, but nothing did.
There was only one piece of clothing that looked like a rag on which maggots crawled.

This is why I hate ghosts.
At best, the only thing you’ll want to take is the things it wore while it was alive.

Luon spat once on the floor and turned around without hesitation.



At the sound of the bell, Hobson, the innkeeper, raised his head to welcome the guest.
On the day of receiving customers from such an early hour, the owner smiled broadly at the lucky guest who came after a long time because the income was good that day.

“You seem to have been walking all night, would you like some warm milk?”

“I’d like to ask you for a quick bite.
If possible, I’d like something soft.”

“You seem to have only eaten jerky the past fe
