For a long time, the Undead soldiers were nourished by the black mana of Jamie within the Gates of Reverse Heaven.

That alone became a blessing and driving force for the growth of the Undead.

But the Undead soldiers…

In particular, Azad and Raiza didn’t stand still. Undead soldiers were trained under them and they even established a command system under them.

As a result, the army was able to match and move in harmony.

Like right now.

“Squad one intercepts the enemy from the front and the 2nd one to the left and right to assist squad one and the 3rd squad will fire at once!”

At Azad’s command, the undead moved quickly.

Their movements were identical.

The melee infantry clasped their bone swords and charged at Serpent.

Behind them, the 2nd squad was chasing with space spread ahead to the left and right.

The 3rd squad had bows made of bone and black mana arrows on them.

Even though there was just one enemy, they moved as if there was an army waiting for them.

‘They can’t even be compared to the past?’

The last time he called them was in Apton.

They fought when Jamie was dealing with the Seven Knights, who were guarding the egg and the demon.

Even then, they moved fairly well, but now it seemed like they progressed twice from then.

Jamie looked at Azad. There was confidence on his face.

‘I didn’t pay much attention to them, but they are doing well.’

Black magic, especially the necromancy type, was so conspicuous that he couldn’t keep using it.

So he felt bad for Azad and Raiza. It was because of the Undead he had, only these two had a sense of reasoning.

And there was nothing to do inside the gate, how bored could they have gotten?

Come to think of it, Raiza was nowhere to be seen. And the Lich too.

“Azad.”

“You called, master?”

Azad knelt down and turned to Jamie.

“… what are you doing?”

“We too are in the army so shouldn’t we follow the basic etiquette?”

Looking back, even the way Azad spoke changed.

No, it was strange rather than change.

Like wrong clothes on him? It was awkward.

Azad was a ruffian. He was an executive of a criminal organization.

How could he speak like a normal citizen now?

It was natural that he felt awkward.

“Don’t fool around and act yourself.”

“… yes.”

And when Jamie didn’t accept it, Azad just got up.

“Where the hell did you learn such shit?”

“… Nebro told us.”

“Lich? He couldn’t have a plausible mind.”

“I don’t think so.”

“… what?”

What new information was this?

When making him a Lich, the first thing Jamie did was take off his reasoning so he would only think the bare minimum.

“He has been talking to us since day one and even sometimes talks about random things. Quite a funny one.”

Jamie couldn’t understand from which side he could be funny.

“I need to meet him later.”

He wanted to summon Nebro right away, but this was a difficult situation with a battle happening. Serpent was already turning crazy and literally annihilating his Undead.

The Undead were trying to attack.

‘I don’t know what, but if Nebro resists it would be two enemies here. And I can’t handle that kind of trouble now.’

The chance of him fighting back was low, but just in case.

Of course, even if he rebelled, Jamie was confident about being able to subdue him.

Unlike the past, his present self surpassed Nebro’s human level.

Even then, it felt weird.

‘Interesting.’

A reasoning in mind which suddenly appeared. And then, a thought popped into Jamie’s mind.

“Maybe he attained realization?”

“Uh?”

“Nothing.”

Jamie shook his head at Azad’s question.

If he thought that way…

Jamie smiled.

Azad, who was watching, that said,

“Your smile is really unpleasant.”

“Do you have a death wish?”

“My master’s smile is so precious.”

Such a bastard, Azad.

An unusual guy who didn’t lose his personality after being turned. There was another one like him, but Jamie couldn’t see him.

“Why didn’t Raiza come?”

“Master gave us a strange one, so he is educating him.”

“Ahh. Ashtar?”

“Why did you put a living one inside? Do you know how upset we were?”

“Who do you think you are questioning?”

“No, what I meant was, hahaha!”

When Jamie asked, Azad laughed.

Quite shameless.

Jamie decided not to start his teaching right now.

“Ashtar, that bastard, is quite talented. Is Raiza fine alone?”

“Are you looking down on Raiza?”

At that, Jamie scratched his forehead.

“I am saying he is strong.”

“While our master treated us like abandoned kids, everyone inside made progress.”

“W-when did I abandon you guys?”

“It is true that you abandoned us. Do you know how boring it is there? Look at them. Those bastards who could do nothing at first, we were so bored that we ended up training them all day and now they fight like that.”

The Undead were definitely fighting well against a 6th class magician.

Even though the skill difference was huge, seeing that they didn’t die yet, it meant that they were all trained well.

But it wasn’t like the Undead were winning.

‘Particle magic. It seems to work well against a lot of people.’

Whenever they touched Serpent’s magic, they would scatter like dust.

Annihilation magic was powerful but Serpent’s Particle magic was so destructive that it didn’t allow regeneration.

In such a state, no matter how well they moved, the Undead couldn’t defeat Serpent.

“Azad. You should go.”

“Yes.”

Azad drew his sword from his waist and jumped to where Serpent was. It looked like his body seemed light.

Azad lept there in an instant.

“You fucking corpse bastards.”

Serpent burst into anger and blocked Azad’s sword with his staff. He reached out to use his magic on Azad.

“Annihilate!”

However, the magic passed through the air and ceiling above turned to dust. This was because Azad turned his sword to the left and diverted the attack.

Azad, who landed on the shoulders of the Undead, used them as stepping stones and aimed for Serpent’s neck.

It was a very fast move. It seemed like he trained well.

“Kuak!”

Serpent decided to move back and distanced himself.

However, Azad was accustomed to stepping onto the Undead so it wasn’t difficult for him to follow.

He then ordered them to reduce the movement of the man as much as possible.

“Don’t… make me mad!”

Maybe it was difficult to bear, Serpent yelled.

His power of Annihilation began to spread around like a circle from where he was standing.

Azad stopped there, and stumbled back.

“This bastard! I will kill all the slaves!”

“Aren’t you paying too much attention to them?”

Then came the voice of Jamie from behind.

He was surely behind the undead before…

Puzzled, Serpent looked back.

“What face is that? Did you see a ghost? Ah, there are quite a lot of ghosts in here.”

Jamie made a silly joke and dug into Serpent’s arm.

“H-How?”

It felt like every common sense was destroyed.

A child wielding an army of undead.

He faced Necromancers. They thought of Undead as bugs to use. Fighting with them would be more effective, so why?

The reason was simple. It was because they use all their mana to keep the Undead. And without the Undead they were like normal humans.

To be honest, he was shocked that Jamie could even control the Undead, but he knew that it would cost a lot of mana.

Because of that, if he wiped out the Undead, Jamie would be out of mana to call them and be nothing different from a trash.

“Why are you here?”

“Because I am a genius.”

Jamie replied with a smirk.

“Brat!”

Puak!

With the cry from Serpent, Jamie’s sword pierced his heart.

Darkness flowed through the sword.

In black magic, darkness was destruction. Can the annihilation through the Particle magic of Serpent surpass the darkness?

“Kuak!”

Serpent coughed blood.

He could hear the footsteps of Undead from behind.

If their weapons hit his back, he would surely die.

But Serpent had no intention of dying, how did all this happen?

“You will…”

Serpent’s eyes were dyed red.

“Be the one to die!!”

At the same time, he let go of the staff and gripped onto the dark blade of Scud.

The blade cut his hand and blood trickled down.

Jamie frowned at that.

“Huh. Try stopping me.”

“Are you killing yourself?”

“I will kill you and I will be the one surviving even if it means to hand over my soul to the Demon King.”

Jamie smiled at those words.

“Try if you can.”

The light of extinction exploded.


Lennon sat in Jamie’s residence.

He was told to come right after class, but no one greeted him till now.

The day was normal.

Did something happen?

Even so, shouldn’t Ann come?

“That one, wasn’t she coming?”

Ann had gone somewhere with Finn.

He didn’t know where. And he wasn’t interested in it either, but he thought she’d come.

Lennon sat there with a puzzled expression on his face.

There was the sound of him knocking the things in the quiet house.

“Eh! What happened?”

Tired of waiting, Lennon kicked the chair.

He was hungry and tired of waiting now.

Lennon went out to the balcony. His body shivered in the cold spring wind.

He looked down. The street below, where people coming and going could be seen.

He checked if Jamie or Ann were there, but neither were there.

He took deep breaths and clenched his hand.

“… Uh?”

The necklace trembled.

Magic has an equivalent exchange.

When Jamie casted a spell, he hung danger alarms on all three of the necklaces.

When Ann and Lennon were in danger, Jamie would know and when Jamie was in danger, Ann and Lennon would know.

In other words, when Lennon’s necklace rang, it meant Jamie was in danger.

The problem was that Lennon didn’t know why it was ringing. Because Jamie said nothing.

So Lennon grabbed onto the necklace and flew out.

And his instincts said,

‘Teacher is in danger!’

The one which made the most sense to him, and for helping him.

Lennon went straight to his father, Count Simon, the Crimson Magician.
