“The library is gone…”
King Friedmoor smiled faintly at the information the servant hastily brought him.
“So the secret has been found.”
He went to the place, which was reserved only for the king.
When the king arrived there, he walked into the deepest part of the library.
There was a small safe locked in front of him with magical devices in there. When the king brought his index finger there, the magic engraved on the safe began to identify the king’s fingerprints.
Soon, the sound of a lock being released from inside was heard. When he lifted the finger, the door opened on its own and a well kept book was seen.
The book looked quite old despite being kept safe. King Friedmoor carefully took out the book.
On the first page was written.
[A demon who cannot hide his greed had come to me.]
The book is a record of a man who existed 500 years back. He was the founding king of the nation and an amazing magician.
The author of the book was King Friedmoor.
And this book was the ‘Record with the Devil.’
A secret document handed down only to the king.
[At that time, I was wandering the world. Because I wondered what the world was, in the process I learned several secrets. A secret that can shake the whole world that cannot be told to anyone.]
[But the more secrets I learned, the more unbearable the rage that grew was. On one hand, I couldn’t sleep because of the great fear in me and around the same time I began to gather forces.]
[Luckily, a rather large force was created. There were too many colleagues for me. And in that, the Devil existed.]
[The Devil came to me after hearing the guise that I had the greatest influence in the place. Not knowing the true nature at the time, I joined hands with the Devil.]
[The Devil had special powers. The power was terrifying and it began to expand at a tremendous rate.]
[A nation called Sodom. It was a small nation, but the evil of the king and nobles went beyond limit. The devil offered me a chance to conquer it. because it was a good thing, I gathered the nearby forces and attacked the nation.]
[Sodom was a weak nation, so it wasn’t difficult to conquer it. I built the present Seldam on that site of Sodom]
[I became the king of the nation, but I wasn’t very happy. It was like knowing the secrets of the world. It was thought that a nation alone couldn’t stand up to the great power that would come one day.]
[It was then the Devil whispered. Somehow, the Devil knew that I knew a few secrets of this world.]
[He suggested. This isn’t enough. The darkness of the world is darker than I knew, so to make a deal.]
[And the devil said to me.]
‘There is no answer anyway. Then let’s hope for the future. You have a short life, but I can live for a very long time. I will enter your crown. There, I will pass on the information I know to humans selected by you and your descendants. However, the real purpose of this work isn’t to give them my knowledge. I am waiting for a human with a high level of sync with me to appear. If the human does appear to me, then he has to be a gifted and talented magician to remove the darkness of this world. How about it? Will you accept it, King Friedmoor?’
[It felt like a sensible suggestion. I didn’t know about the lifespan of the Devil, but I knew that it would help save the ordinary human.]
[I could understand. That nothing the devil offers me would be good. Unless infinite altruism exists, being confined to a crown and enduring decades it would be hell.]
[And the devil I know wasn’t the kind one. It was then that I found that the Devil was indeed a ‘Devil’.]
[But I couldn’t resist the suggestion. Because I knew that he held power. And this is why I came up with the book.]
[I declare that this book is open only to the heirs of the throne. The kings who will read this book must swear by the decree. Never take out the contents of the book to others. If you break the oath, you will die on the spot.]
[And kindly, if a person with a link with the devil does appear, be sure to trust him.]
[The devil does not know of this fact. The power that man possesses is that of a fragment of someone who existed a long time ago. And a being, with a high degree of link will be someone that the Devil himself cannot touch.]
[Kings must do their best to protect him until he grows up. That will be the key to protecting Seldam and the world.]
There was more content after it, but it wasn’t needed to be looked at.
King put the records back in the vault and sealed it.
“In the end, your will has come to pass.”
The crown of the first king containing the devil disappeared. And Jamie Welton appeared with new powers.
“But you are also wrong.”
King Friedmoor recalled the first king’s words.
“He isn’t someone to be protected.”
The Jamie Welton he saw was perfectly grown. And he will become more perfect in the future.
And he too was curious.
How far will the child grow?
How will he grow?
The important thing is that he will have a profound influence on national issues in future.
“I look forward to the future.”
The king smiled and stood up as he stepped outside.
“I didn’t think the Majesty would let it pass.”
Linmel sighed in relief.
No matter how Jamie was appointed as Master, the library was the most valuable treasure of Seldam.
It was because a good thing for the nation had disappeared, yet the King didn’t mind.
“After all, the King is really different.”
Linmel, sipped the tea.
Siegfried, who was standing next to him, nodded and saw the child at the other side, Jamie, was too big to be called a child.
“I didn’t think that the true identity of the crown was Gav, the first king.”
“It is shocking that such a person was hiding and deceiving the entire Kingdom, but on the other hand, it is our mistake that we didn’t know about this.”
Following Siegfried’s words, Simon spoke with a bit of an embarrassed expression. Linmel nodded to it.
“I am glad that it is over now. Jamie has a great name because of it.”
“Great names are too much.”
Jamie said looking at the people, Linmel, Siegfried, Simon and Raymon.
The elders who had the same purpose were gathered here. And they knew the secrets of Jamie.
“But, it is turning to a point of being too burdensome.”
Raymon looked at Jamie with a curious look.
“I am not used to it either.”
Jamie said, looking at his body. It was awkward to move with huge body parts now, but he was getting better.
And he was constantly admiring his own body.
The holy light which came from black mana. After fully absorbing it, Jamie met physical evolution.
All the impurities accumulated in the body were drained out, the muscles and skeleton were rebuilt and the mana core felt more strengthened to contain more mana.
The circulation of mana was smoother than expected and it wasn’t too far behind his heyday.
Considering the potential growth, if he grew more than now, then he would surpass the time when he was in his prime.
In fact, the biggest reason for this was the evolution which came from the holy light being absorbed and it synergized the effect of Life Orb.
Besides, he was entering his growth time and in future he would grow a lot more
‘The foundation is prepared perfectly.’
The body before evolution was good, but the body now seemed like it would exceed the limits of previous life.
His sword skills too will increase.
Everything was moving for the best.
“What do you plan to do now?”
At Linmel’s question, Jamie put his hands on the desk and answered.
“I plan to focus on training for the next few years.”
“Not a closed training, but I need to focus on it.”
What was the most pressing thing right now?
Sword is important but he had to focus on magic.
“5 years. I will be in 8th class in five years.”
At the absurd declaration the 5 magicians were in shock but no one ridiculed it.
Because of the past life.
“In 5 years huh, must be restless.”
“Right. Catching up will not be easy for us.”
“Huhuhu, this old man gave up catching up and is going to have fun watching it.”
At the words of the magicians, Jamie smiled.
5 years from now.
‘That way, I can stand on the true starting line.’
Zenith will begin to move.
According to the recent news, the Eastern part of the continent, where Zenith has its main church, began to protect its lower churches.
At the same time, they were spreading false news that the work in Apton was nothing but lies of the Seldam Kingdom
Due to such, small conflict battles were taking place in the border places of the northern continent.
A full fledged war didn’t start yet, but Jamie thought it was just a matter of time.
No matter what anyone said, the first God to kill had to be Zenith.
Jamie clenched his fist.
The time to take revenge was approaching. Starting with Zenith, one after another.
‘For sure in this life. I will make sure to finish all your fakes.’
Jamie’s eyes turned purple.
The boy raised his head and got up from the seat.
And someone knocked on the door.
“Apostle. This is Lars.”
The door opened with Lars, a familiar face walking in. The boy, Ricky, looked at him and smiled.
“What is it, brother Lars?”
“We are in front of the goddess.”
“So what? Goddess will understand. Right? Goddess?”
“If you are fine.”
Ricky looked at the symbol of Pyro on his hand and waved and Lars shook his head. If anyone had done it, they would be considered blasphemy, but Ricky, the apostle of Pyro did it.
Because he was closer to God than anyone else.
“Are you praying today?”
“Yes. What is it brother? Is there any interesting news?”
Ricky’s eyes widened at it.
Well, the news that Lars would have come personally to deliver would have to be of his close friend.
“News of Jamie!”
Lars smiled and nodded.
“What? What did he do this time?”
Last news Ricky heard from Jamie was that he defeated a Count demon in Magic World.
When he heard that, a shiver ran through his body.
Lars looked at Ricky and said.
“Ricky. We need to level up.”
“What do you mean?”
“Well, Jamie you see… has been appointed as a Master of Seldam Kingdom.”
Ricky didn’t know what it meant to be a Master, so Lars explained.
Ricky’s eyes widened at that, and his face bright with a smile.
“That Jamie! I thought he would be behind me, but he is ahead of me again!”
He thought Jamie would be behind him because of his recent hard work, but his friend widened the gap again.
But Ricky wasn’t disappointed.
On the contrary, enthusiasm rose.
“Like brother said, I need to work hard.”
“Yes. If it is you, you can be a good match with Jamie.”
“I cannot be protected by Jamie like I used to. I don’t know when we’ll see each other, but I need to stand by his side this time.”
Ricky said and raised his right hand. The holy power of Pyro erupted out.
Seeing that, Lars’ eyes trembled.
‘Already at this level…’
It was less than a year since Ricky came to the main church, and he was already at a Bishop level.
He also received regular training in swordsmanship from a Holy Executioner, and he wasn’t too far to qualify as an official paladin.
Ricky was struggling to be on the same level as his friend.
“This isn’t the time to be like this. I need to go and train.”
“It is time for the training.”
“Right. I feel great too. That Jamie. The next time, he will be so surprised that he will fall in love with me.”
Ricky made up his mind and left the room.
Lars looked at the goddess and scratched his head, then he put his hands together and prayed to the goddess.
“Make sure that both the children stay safe.”
And five years passed.
