“… is it another dream of that time?”

A child slowly opened his eyes.

He was an impressive-looking boy with large emerald eyes and long eyelashes.

The boy ruffled his hair that had the same color as his eyes, and stood up.

A room too large for just a young boy.

It used to be difficult to adjust to it, but now, after 7 years, it has become less awkward.

7-year-old Jamie Welton got out of the huge bed and walked to the window.

“Ugh-”

The boy stretched himself and opened the window.

Winter has already passed, and Spring is just around the corner.

The scent of spring flowers, which were slowly starting to bloom, ticked Jamie’s nose. However, that didn’t seem to impress the boy.

Jamie leaned against the window and looked outside.

At first glance, he had the face of a child, but his expression seemed to be that of adults, the expression of someone who’d experienced all sorts of storms in the world.

“It has already been 7 years.”

Like his expression, his tone was unnatural for a child.

His parents or nanny would have been shocked if they heard that.

Which was why Jamie didn’t behave that way in front of the grownups.

He acted like a child, as much as he could.

“Tch. Today is going to be a tiring one too.”

After reincarnation, he grew up under his parents’ care until now.

For him, who had his past memories intact, this life was an arduous task.

The most difficult thing was-

Just imagining it made Jamie frown.

“Being loved is such a terrible thing.”

Jamie sighed as he remembered the eyes of his parents looking at him.

He could feel how ridiculous his situation was.

Jamie Welton.

On the one hand,

The eldest son and official heir of Count Welton, belonging to the Seldam Kingdom.

On the other,

The strongest dark magician in history who tried to bring down the 12 Gods living in the sky.

Diablo Volfir!

That was the true name of the being who now occupied the boy’s, Jamie Welton’s body.

Such a great person was now a little boy.

‘But it isn’t bad.’

It actually wasn’t that bad.

Reincarnation offered him a new opportunity.

He managed to come out of the seal.

Despite such a body, time was on his side, and he was happy.

‘And they aren’t disappearing either.’

After a bit of research, he found out that the Gods were still believed, leading the lives of parasites.

They didn’t seem to have checked the seal even once in the thousands of years.

Diablo Volfir was almost erased from their memories.

Such arrogant men.

It’s always been that way.

‘Time is definitely on my side.’

Those arrogant and heavy assed ones would never move until he showed himself in earnest.

Even knowing that Jamie had been reincarnated, there could be a possibility that they were just ignoring him.

Such beings.

If there was one problem-

“My-my level is so damn low right now.”

Something resembling a black bat floated over Jamie’s hand.

It was a summoned demon.

Kiruru-!

It rubbed its face on the hands showing that it was in a good mood.

Jamie gently scratched its head before reversing its summon.

As he was young, his body had limitations with magic.

In order to gain the strength of the past, he had to have an adult’s body.

Or maybe body restructure?

But in these peaceful times, such ancient magic didn’t exist.

It could be used somewhere, but at least it wasn’t known to the public.

There is a possibility of finding it if the dark alley was searched, but with his current body, everything was impossible.

Fortunately, he was in a good family.

Welton was one of the largest families in the Seldam Kingdom.

With the fifth-largest territory in the kingdom and more than 10 knights troops under Count Welton’s control.

Above all, Count Welton was Jamie’s father and the only Sword Master in the Kingdom.

In addition, his mother had a huge family.

‘I feel bad, but I need to use everything available.’

How would they react when they find out that their son, whom they have been raising for 7 years, is actually a monster from the myth era?

Of course, he didn’t intend to tell.

They aren’t the kind to believe such stories, and even if they do, they aren’t the kind to harm their own children.

He had been watching them for 7 years, and they were clearly good people.

To the point that they became an embarrassing topic to him.

It was then.

Knock! Knock!

“Young master!”

A familiar voice was heard, along with a knock.

It is a voice that he’s been hearing for seven years.

“Is it time already?”

Jamie looked at the mana powered wall clock.

The hour hand was getting close to 8.

It seemed like he was too immersed in his contemplation.

Knock! Knock!

“Young master!”

Nanny’s call was heard again with another knock.

Jamie rubbed his chin and cleared his throat.

He threw off the uncle-like tone and opened his mouth with a high-pitched voice.

“Yes, nanny. I am up!”

“Can I come in?”

“Yes.”

The door opened, and an old maid with white hair walked in.

Her name was Anna.

She was Jamie’s nanny, the future Welton’s head.

She looked at Jamie, who was still in his pajamas.

“The master and the lady are waiting for you. Please change your clothes.”

“The morning sky was so beautiful that I kept staring at it and lost track of time.”

“Our young master is such a sensitive being!”

Anna praised with a wrinkled smile.

Sensitive.

Was he really like that?

Jamie smiled and went to change his clothes.

And it started again.

A very annoying and tiring day which has been going on for the last 7 years.


With Anna’s help, Jamie changed his clothes and headed straight to the dining room.

Jamie’s expression wasn’t very relaxed.

Probably because he knew what to expect.

It was an act that has been going on without a break for 7 years, and things will continue like that for several more years.

“Young master.”

Jamie stopped walking at Anna’s call.

Standing in front of the enormous door, his face was complicated.

It took 7 years for him to get used to it.

‘I got used to it. I did’

Maybe this should be the first thing to put down while learning black magic to kill the Gods?

“Young master Jamie has arrived.”

When Anna opened the door with a squeaking sound, the interior came into view.

Beneath a large chandelier, a simple yet nutritious breakfast was spread out on a long wooden table.

And people were seated on the uppermost and right sides.

They smiled at Jamie, who had just entered.

“Sweetheart, come and sit down.”

“Huhu. Who do you resemble to look so cute?”

“What do you mean? He obviously takes after you.”

“No way. I meant to compare him to you, an angel that came from heaven.”

“Oh my, my dear, you too, huhuhuhu.”

“hahahaha!”

“…..”

Jamie looked at the man and woman, his parents.

Count Argeno Welton, head of the Welton estate and Jamie’s father.

At the age of 37, he became a sword genius who reached the level of Sword Master. Besides, he’s known to be one of the five Sword Masters in the Kingdom. The five fingers of the kingdom.

Sears Bell Welton, the Count’s wife and Jamie’s mother.

She was the sole daughter of the Bell family, but now she was in charge of the Welton house.

And the 3-year-old girl sitting between them.

She was small and hard to see, but she was Jamie’s only sister, Sarah Welton.

Finally, Jamie.

These four made up the Welton family.

If there was a problem, then…

“My baby, why aren’t you coming? Come sit next to your mother, come on. You want to eat quickly, right?”

“Heheh. Your mom is calling for you, cutie. Go ahead and eat till your heart’s content.”

The Welton family was overflowing with love to the point that it seemed excessive.

Too much for a dark magician who gave up on ‘love’.

Jamie responded as brightly as possible.

“Yes!”

As always.


“Sigh.”

After eating, Jamie returned to his room and laid on his bed with a tired face.

Tired of excessive love.

He felt embarrassed despite being used to it. When he was just born, he really wanted to die.

In the past, when he threw away his feelings, he didn’t think that such a situation would come.

‘Damn it.’

He would like to take some more rest, but he was supposed to meet with his mother in 30 minutes as she would read a book for children.

He wanted to give the excuse of being sick, but if he did that, the situation would only get worse.

Sears’s worries and love will turn into excessive care, which is equally terrible.

“Haa. I want to go to the library.”

A world when thousands of years have passed since the time of Diablo Volfir.

The present world had progressed so much that it couldn’t be compared to the past.

And the history was supposed to be recorded in the form of books.

So, for Jamie, the library was the goal.

No matter how much he knew, there was no end to knowledge.

It has been only two years since he began to enter the library.

Even after reading lots of books since then, he couldn’t even see 30% of the huge library that the Count owned.

Despite that, he possessed knowledge on an intellectual level.

Before becoming a dark magician, Jamie was a magician.

And magicians covet the knowledge of the world.

However, Jamie had no intention of being satisfied with only that level.

‘Modern magic is fun.’

Since intercepting the Gods with conventional magic was difficult, he invented dark magic.

However, the magic of modern times was so incredible compared to the past.

To be more precise, the field is divided into 9 classes.

Even in Diablo Volfir’s days, the state of magic could be distinguished, but it wasn’t as specific as now.

The system now was more essential.

Without a system, the level of competition would be low.

And modern magic has a system that was good in his eyes.

‘Very useful.’

It wasn’t lethal enough to compete with black magic, but it was more versatile compared to the past and superior too.

Black magic could be further developed.

“Hmm.”

His physical condition had improved.

Soon, Sears will call for him.

Unsurprisingly, he heard the footsteps of the nanny outside.


Sears looked at her son with loving eyes.

“My sweet baby, come here.”

“Yes, mother.”

Jamie hid his actual expression and approached as nicely as possible.

As if it was what had to be done, he hugged her.

“Hehe. My cutie!”

Sears rubbed her cheek hard against her son’s.

Jamie’s expression didn’t look good, but no one had noticed it.

“Now, the fairy tale we’re going to read for today is.”

She read the book in a pleasant voice.

Jamie was about to yawn, but he held it back as he knew his mother would notice.

“And Heniz lived happily ever after!”

Sears closed the book and looked at her son with a smile.

“Was it fun?”

“Yes. I want to become a great magician like him in the future.”

Jamie gave an age-appropriate answer which Sears could like.

“Hehe. My son is so smart. I am sure you’ll become a great magician. Aren’t you already a genius who defeated three teachers?”

“Haha…”

Was she being sarcastic?

When Count Welton learned that Jamie was trying to read difficult books in the library, he hired magicians to be his teachers.

However, everyone knelt in front of the genius boy and gave up teaching.

“Anyways, dad said that he would bring in a great magician for our son.”

“It is fine.”

It is hard to say great. The teacher would probably be 4-5th class.

Even if the teacher was 7th or higher, Jamie doubted that they could impress him.

Above all, who can teach the greatest dark magician of all times?

Even the best magician in the world would fail.

“Are you going to the library now?”

“Yes!”

“Don’t read too much and play around too.”

“Don’t worry.”

“I am worrying for my lovely son!”

Sears hugged Jamie so strongly that he might die.

‘Do this in moderation, please, mother!’

Jamie let out a silent cry.
