There is no pressure when it is below. There's nowhere else to be separated, and there's nothing to protect.
The burden comes only when there is something to be achieved, not when there is something to be lost.
"Living quarters. I'm...….”
When Gwak Hae opened his mouth, Baek Sang raised his hand slightly and cut off his back.
"Oh, wait, wait."
Gwak Hae's eyes were filled with questions about the out-of-the-box behavior.
"I'm telling you in advance, don't expect me to give you a proper answer to your question, or to have a conversation with me to solve your problems."
"I'm not a great man for that. I'm having a hard time dealing with my job."
"…I really can't rely on you."
"You're supposed to live your life alone.”
At Baek Sang's words, Gwak Hae ended up laughing quietly. asked Baek Sang.
"So it's hard to keep up?”
"It's a little subtly different.….”
"That's what I'm saying."
Baek Sang shrugged his shoulders.
"I told you a while ago.Sipi, everyone's worried about that. You're not the only one who's unique."
"Think about it. The death penalty is driving madly in front of me, and I can't tell him to take it easy enough, and I can't tell him to go slower to someone who's ten times heavier than me."
Baek Sang distorted his face as if he were angry as he spoke.
"But it's the other guys you should follow, like Yoon-Jong and Jo-Gol."
"Ba, the other half?”
The death penalty?
To Gwak Hae, Yoon-Jong and Jo-Gol looked so great that I've never thought of them that way. But Baek Sang's next words convinced him.
"I'm supposed to be following the death penalty of Baek Cheon, d*mn it."
At that moment Gwak Hae deeply and sincerely sympathized with Baek Sang.
Compared to Baek Cheon, Jo-Gol and Yoon-Jong are more humane. Of course, the story changes when you bring Chung-Myung, but he's not the one to be compared to anyone in the first place.
"And where's the death penalty? Sama is a sword ghost, and now even the people who are going to buy it wield the sword like beasts...….”
"……It must be hard."
"Do you mean it?"
Baek Sang gritted his teeth.
"I knew this would happen, so I ran away on second alert.What the hell is the use of running away? I thought I didn't have to train when I went to Jae-Kak. Well, the training must be done on the training camp, the re-alarm must be done on a daily basis.….”
Of course, you're saying he ran away with re-awakening, but it was true that Baek Sang was having a hard time doing both training and re-awakening.
"In the meantime, the death penalty is busy training and abandoning everything he has to do as a great student. If anything happens, they come to me and complain to me that they're on death row."
Gwak Hae somehow became seriously sorry when he thought one of them was him.
Baek Sang, who had his tongue out, sighed as he gulped down a drink.
"By the way."
"But it's not the hardest thing for me."“…….”
His eyes glanced towards the banquet hall.
"As I said before, just because they're drinking over there doesn't mean they're cheerful because they don't have any thoughts. I'm sure everyone is feeling their own pressure."
Gwak Hae nodded quietly.
"Hwasan is getting stronger at a really crazy rate. Sometimes I get scared like you. At some point, everyone walks past me, and I'm afraid I'll be the only one left here. I'm afraid I won't be able to meet the minimum expectations that the envoy has on me."
"……Yes, boarding house."
It represented the anxiety Gwak Hae felt.
It is certainly a good thing that things are getting bigger and stronger.
In other words, however, that means that each person has more burden and burden to bear.
"Maybe the burden you feel will never go away. No, maybe it'll get bigger."
"The more you win, the more enemies you have."
Baek Sang was as calm as he had been thinking about this for a long time.
"Hwasan had only to follow those in front of him. There was Jongnam above and there was a shaman, so I had nothing to lose even if I lost.”
"But not anymore. Now that I have something to lose. And the other clans will start to keep us in check and seek."
Baek Sang, who paused, looked up at the sky.
I didn't know that before.
There was a time when the sword was wielded splendidly and only aimed at its shining appearance.
But now I know.
What's behind the glamour.
The fact that Oh Geom, who is building his reputation to the point of brilliance, is not just happy.
Rather, the burden they feel will be different from the burden felt by Baek Sang or Gwak Hae.
"Then what should I do?"
"To get rid of this burden…….”
"What did you hear?"
Baek Sang grinned brightly at Gwak Hae.
"Don't expect anything from me. I'm not the one who can answer that."
Gwak Hae's face quickly turned sour. I couldn't figure out why he was smiling brightly when he said that.
"There can't be an answer."
Baek Sang murmured in a seductive way.
"I just hang in there."
"Is there any other answer?”
Still, the respect for Baek Sang, who had a small heart, rumbled away.
Was he always this hopeless?’
I don't think it used to be like that.….
It felt like Hwasan's Chung-Myungization went too far.
"What's wrong with your eyes?"
"Your eyes are so cheeky.”
Gwak Hae dodged the eye.
Back then, Baek Sang opened his mouth in a different voice than before.
"In the first place."
"I don't think a man without pressure can be strong."
Gwak Hae flinched unknowingly.
That remark by Baek Sang was strangely penetrating into his ears.
"No pressure means no worries, and no worries are not intense. I'm sure you've seen what happens to the people who have mastered swords without worrying or worrying about it."
Of course, shamans were not people who could be devalued.However, the difference between Hwasan, who has been agonizing hard, and Shudang, who has learned the sword with all the backgrounds guaranteed, was clear enough for everyone who was there to feel it today.
"It's always hard. Up there, driving like crazy, behind like crazy."
"But it's true that we've come all the way here because we're stuck in the middle of it's true.”
"So think more about it more."
Drank with alcohol, Baek Sang slowly shook his seat and woke up.
"It's worth worrying about in and of itself. I don't know if I can find a cool answer...…but it's not wrong to feel pressured and worried anyway."
"I'm going. Tsk. I can't help but come to see you."
"I'm going to bed. I'm dying of pain where I got hit."
Back Sang turned around and waved without looking back. Gwak Hae, who was staring blankly at the back of it, unknowingly raised his voice.
Baek Sang looked nervously back. Gwak Hae bowed his head deeply.
"Thank you for freezing to death."
Baek Sang, who waved his hands as if he was bothered, jumped down the roof without hesitation and trudged away.
It was not until he was no longer seen walking between the war angles that Gwak Hae sank back down.
"…It's not wrong…….”
I haven't found a cool answer, nor have I solved my worries about what to do in the future. But when I thought about it, somehow I felt a little relieved.
Staring at the light leaking out of the banquet hall, he murmured calmly.
"They're all the same."
Everyone is carrying their own burden.
Baek Sang, who turned his head slightly and looked up at the eaves, kicked his tongue lightly.
It's a good thing.
In the meantime, just doing what I was told was enough. But now I can't do that anymore. The more things Hwasan has to do, and the more other students have to step up, the more and deeper these concerns will be.
And they will be stronger through those concerns.
"Tsk. Who am I to rambling on...….”
"No. It wasn't that bad."
Baek Sang's body stiffened at the familiar voice that penetrated his ear. After standing silently for a long time, he asked in a dismal voice without looking back.
"Did you see that?"
"From the beginning."
"From the beginning?"
His head slowly turned sideways. Baek Cheon was smiling in the pouring moonlight.
"……No. Why are you monitoring me?"
"I was wondering what's going on with the lovely quibble getting out of my way."
"You don't care when a lovely priest leaves?”
"My priest, he's so good on his own. Do I have to?”
Baek Sang's face turned red.
"Come on, man!"
Baek Sang, who was embarrassed, turned nervous as Baek Cheon just smiled without answering.
I felt uncomfortable because I felt like I had been caught inside for no reason. My ears were burning and my neck was burning.
"Where are you going?"
"I'm going to the room!"
"It's the death penalty, it's easy to win without being beaten, but I've been beaten! I'm going to rest."
"But I think I can have another drink.""…Yes?"
When Baek Sang turned around, Baek Cheon was waving a bottle of liquor in one hand.
"It's been a while since the two of us had a drink. How's it going?"
Buck Sang, who scratched his head, sighed as if he couldn't help it.
"Instead, I don't want to mention what I said earlier."
"You don't know if you drink alcohol."
Baek Cheon approached Baek Sang with a low smile and tapped him on the shoulder.
Just as he is desperate to support Chung-Myung, the other Hwasan disciples are doing their best in their respective positions.
When I realized this again, I was filled with gratitude.
"What the hell is this to the injured...….”
"I also brought your favorite shipper."
"……This is your first time saying something you like."
Baek Cheon, who tapped Baek Sang's shoulder once again, walked slowly ahead. Baek Sang looked silently at his back like that.
"Aren't you going?"
Baek Sang laughed silently and ran toward Baek Cheon.
Yeah, so much has changed. Much has changed beyond comparison just a few years ago.
Even in the future, Hwasan will change rapidly.
Maybe it'll be too different from what Baek Sang knew.
But there are definitely things that don't change.
Yes, but Hwasan is Hwasan.
"Come on, let's go!"
"Oh, don't pull!"
The bright moon quietly lit up behind the two people who were waddling back and forth after playing pranks.
The light was exceptionally bright and it was a night when everything in the world seemed bright.
