After leaving the auction house, Venna returned to her original form. And she took off the mask covering her face.

“Wah!”

The mask was too weird so she had to narrow her face to fit it in, and that left marks on the side of her face.

And marks were the natural enemy of beauty…

Venna sighed and looked around.

“But where the hell did master go?”

An incident broke out and Jamie disappeared with Siegfried.

She wished he left after saying something. even if she wanted to look for him, it wouldn’t be easy as she didn’t know where he went.

So she was on her way to the room. If she stayed there, he would come back at some point.

As she lessened her worries, the black man she saw lingered on her mind.

“Did something happen?”

[You seem worried. We visited the auction house as a guest, what kind of problem will happen between that monster and the kid?]

Philion’s words made sense.

It wasn’t known if Jamie had caused the mess, but if the black man was from the auction house, then she had to move and protect him.

Venna nodded, then thought it was impossible for Jamie to do something wrong and pushed her worries away.

“We should have something.”

She was so nervous that she began to feel hungry.

In addition, she was in an uncomfortable dress which put pressure on her stomach.

At first, she was excited to wear a dress, but now she didn’t want to try it on ever again.

“Kyaaak!”

At that moment, a woman’s scream was heard from not far away.

Venna trembled as she looked in that direction.

There were different kinds of screams, screams of shock, fear and pain.

The third scream was something she knew for sure. She heard it too well in the Gav school she stayed at.

“Pre-pretend like I didn’t hear…”

Venna gulped and tried to walk back to her room.

“Kyaaak!”

The scream came and stopped again.

A man’s scream.

What was happening that such screams were coming out?

Should she take a look? However, she wasn’t ready to move to a place which was full of screams.

It was because of fear. Although she became cheerful because of Jamie, she had suffered in the past and that turned into a trauma for her. So she was only confident when she was next to Jamie.

‘T-that damned scream…’

Where did her master have to go?

It was when she was about to move to where the scream came from.

Philion said.

[Elf.]

“… what?”

Venna was shocked at his words.

[You can’t feel the energy from elves?]

“Eh, is there something like elf energy?”

[Tch. It seems like you have no senses because you don’t live in the forest]

Philion clicked his tongue.

Elves and Valkyries were both fairies of the forest. Although the races were different, they were still children of the forest, so they could usually sense the energy of each other.

Unfortunately, Venna had been out of the forest for too long. In addition, due to her long-term brainwashing, her innate nature of Valkyrie had been lost.

Despite recovering a little, she wasn’t a pure Valkyrie now.

[Both screams were from an elf. Must have come out as slaves at the auction house.]

“S-should we save?”

[Do whatever you want. I am not interested in elves.]

Philion dismissed it.

Even among the fairies of the forest, Philion was an ego that only worked for Valkyries.

In any case, the elves were a different race.

“Maybe it will do something good?”

Venna remembered the elves, a woman and a man who were sold as the first item in the auction house. Their bodies were restrained tightly and their expressions were stiff.

She saw a lot of slaves. Even during her stay in Gav school, she saw human slaves.

A terrible sight. She grew up watching that scene all the time. Days were like hell for her.

One day, a slave of different race came to the school.

The slave was more terrifying than the human slave, and that slave lived and died and lived and died constantly because of the experiments.

What about elven slaves? Elves were the most beautiful race in the world. Those with twisted desires among humans had long hunted for them.

After that, there was no need to explain.

‘But…’

Could she act alone?

She always followed Jamie and took his strength for granted. It was the same today.

If she tried to do something on her own and something went wrong, it would make things worse.

That too was a trauma for Venna.

In school she did what the others did cause if she did something new and it didn’t work out, she would constantly be cursed.

Venna didn’t mind being insulted by Jamie. But she didn’t want him to be disappointed in her.

Philion let out a sigh at Venna’s gloomy face.

[Do you think that little boy is like other humans?]

Venna couldn’t answer.

Jamie, her master wasn’t the kind to throw her out for something like this.

Even if he had a bad temper, he was always considerate.

Even if it bothered him, he would come out each night to let Venna walk as a human by hiding from Siegfried and providing meals on time too.

Jamie was a nasty but kind person. At least for Venna, he was more than a benefactor.

“Philion, help me.”

[I am your weapon. I can do anything you want.]

“Yes.”

Venna made up her mind and wrapped the ring in her hands, and the pink hammer formed in her hand.

For four months these two had trained in Gremia. She still couldn’t be as strong as she was against the demon, but at least now she wouldn’t disappoint Jamie.

“Look after me!”

[That isn’t difficult.]

Yellow butterfly wings moved. The beautiful wings were leaving light particles as they flapped.


A single sword endowed with the power of All Might, slashed into the aura armor on Darius.

It was impossible for a person who hadn’t reached a Master level to do it. However, the three items of Diablo, especially the stone which gave strong resistance to physical force, made the impossible possible.

Still, the limitations were clear.

‘Shallow.’

Even with Siegfried constantly twisting the space, Darius was still fine.

No matter how much the sword cut through, Jamie wasn’t great with the sword yet.

Only the outer skin was cut. Jamie bit his lip and unfolded ‘Sea of Hundred’.

“This is…”

Darius seemed shocked.

Jamie’s movements were clearly felt in his spatial perception. The flow of mana moved along with the kid.

It was a very familiar move. He experienced it several times in the past.

‘It is definitely the Sea of Hundred.’

Darius would never forget the skill he encountered even once. It wasn’t simply because of his power. He felt and understood their movements because he couldn’t see.

The process had been engraved into his mind.

In particular, if it was a gait like the ‘Sea of Hundred’ he couldn’t forget it even if he wanted to.

Mana gathered on the sword. The place he stood in was being overtaken by Jamie Welton.

The Sea of Hundred was taking control of the space around.

It was invented by Chervil Welton, the former head of the Welton family and was known to be the best gait method.

Darius knew it too. Besides, it wasn’t just the Sea of Hundred.

‘Futility Divide’.

Even the swordsmanship.

A vision which was passed down only to the Welton bloodline.

He actually not just felt the Sea of Hundred but even the Futility Divide several times.

Compared to what he experienced back then, which was like an incomplete one, this was a true Futility Divide.

He could feel it now. He didn’t understand what Jamie did, but he tore apart the aura armor. Here, only Siegfried had the power to pierce his aura.

But this kid did it.

“A Welton?”

Jamie didn’t answer.

It didn’t matter if this man found out who he was. What was important was to end this.

He didn’t expect himself to kill Darius. If he could just slash him enough to create time for the other two, that was enough.

“All Might, once more.”

Last one.

All Might, like Perfect Cell, was a mana-eating piece.

[Welton form]

[Sea of Hundred]

‘Sea of Hundred-with magic’ concentrates the mana at the tip of his foot and explodes the flow of mana which the Sea of Hundred creates.

The technique he was going to use now was magic which concentrates on the flow of the sword and not toes like he did in practice.

The strongest fusion magic created by Jamie. Combining sword and magic.

[Soul Escape]

Jik!

The flow of mana reached a point where it could overcome the space.

“Amazing. The Sea of Hundred was already complete.”

Even a Master would take damage with this new skill.

Darius knew it too but he wasn’t flustered. No, he was confused. He admired Jamie’s sword, which took the completed Sea of Hundred to a new realm.

But he wasn’t someone who could be defeated by Jamie’s sword, because Jamie only touched the sword 4 months back which meant he just stepped into the world of the sword.

“0.55. your sword lacks a lot.”

He gently grabbed the sword.

The power of the sword was around him but he didn’t care. This kid couldn’t do anything other than scratch his skin.

“The fight ends here.”

Scud didn’t move.

Jamie looked at Darius with wide eyes.

A sword wasn’t enough. He raised mana. He even decided to bring out Leviathan.

But before he could do it, Siegfried and Han moved.

“Young lord!”

“Kid!”

The two moved towards Darius with the intent to kill Darius.

Darius grinned as he felt the two men moving behind him and raised his right leg.

“The fight is done.”

And brought the leg down.

Kwang!

The ground of Gremia began to collapse.

“Did it.”

Gremia is only dismantled by physical force.

Not broken. The shape-building pieces will be restored naturally according to the owner’s will. But not right away.

The hostility felt from Darius disappeared. Instead, sudden ‘intimacy’ filled the place.

And Darius spoke.

“To see the grandson of an old friend here. Should I call this fate?”

Darius chuckled.

“I knew your grandfather very well, Jamie Welton.”

Jamie went stiff at the remark about the former Welton head.

“Is this coincidence or inevitability for us to meet like this?”

“… what was it?”

Jamie’s expression wrinkled.
