Jamie infused mana into the dimensional stone fragment.

Kuku

Soon, a dimensional rift began to form in the air. A passageway to the human world, Bless

Beiros looked at it with a dissatisfied expression.

And asked Jamie,

“Do I really have to come?”

“That is the contract, though?”

“Ugh… that is true… but…”

Defeated by Jamie, Beiros was stripped of all titles and ranks and was effectively put in the lowest state. But then he accepted Jamie’s offer to return everything through a soul pact.

Even if he didn’t want to, he would have to obey Jamie’s orders.

“Are you worried about his majesty?”

“He isn’t weak enough for me to worry about him.”

“But if the other 4 Great Demon Kings come…”

“It won’t happen.”

At Jamie’s resolute words, Beiros titled his head.

“The legion which attacks us will get weaker soon. Will they leave the 4th Great Demon King alone? Even if it isn’t for the king, they would surely aim to invade.”

“It is fine.”

Jamie explained the reason while manipulating the coordinates of the portal.

“The 4 Great Demon Kings are discussing what to do with the Land of Wrath, so Trika won’t have to worry. Trika’s land isnt much to them, so they will not need it. After looking at the Demon Lord of Wrath, one can tell that he didn’t push Trika to the end.”

“Isn’t that a too simplified thought?”

“There is another thing. If even one of those 4 had eyes on Trika, wouldn’t they be quite furious with the situation? Sharing the land of one great demon lord must be annoying for them, and now they have to touch Trika for a small land? There is no way they would do such a stupid thing.”

It was evident from the fact that they didn’t intervene in the war at all. Beiros, too nodded his head like he understood that part.

Still, he asked again.

“What about the other demon lords? Even if they aren’t as strong as the great demon lords, quite a few don’t like his majesty.”

“They cannot fight against Trika.”

“Uh?”

Beiros was unaware of the fact that Trika was able to freely manipulate the power of a concept.

As long as he could do that, everyone would become food for Trika.

Of course, there is nothing to be worried about.

If the 4 great demon lords reached a drastic conclusion and peaceful negotiation was made, it would be a threat to Trika.

But the demons Jamie knew, especially the demon lords, would never do that.

‘Because they live for good taste.’

It won’t be easy to find a class like Trika again for them. Jamie finished adjusting the coordinates and told Beiros.

“Get ready”

“… will you not say goodbye to his majesty?”

“I did everything before.”

“I am asking if you might want to…”

“We aren’t like being away forever. You speak so disgustingly.”

“Tch. What more do I say if even the caring words are dismissed like this?”

“If you continue to talk like this, clench!”

Beiros reflexively raises his hand when Jamie looked ready to hit him.

“Hmm.”

He was so embarrassed that he even coughed. Jamie looked at him like the act was pathetic.

“Let’s go.”

“… Yes.”

Beiros glanced behind him for no reason and followed Jamie with a determined face.

Soon, the form of the two go wrapped into the portal, and the portal emitting intense light expanded.

Woong!

It quickly compressed into a tiny dot and disappeared at once.


Late at night

“Chase after!”

Knights in silver-colored armor were chasing after someone in the dark. A certain pattern was drawn on the chest of the knights, betraying their affiliation to Zenith.

“Don’t miss!!”

The man who seemed to be the captain pointed to the man who continued to run. The man glanced behind as he grunted.

‘Shit…how did things get like this…’

He remembered what it was like a week ago.

If he hadn’t made that choice back then, the terrible situation he was in now wouldn’t have come.

‘No, if I had just killed him on the spot…’

This wouldn’t have happened if he hadn’t tried capturing Kreon, the head of the Seven Knights and the Grand Master.

If that was the case, Ricky, the apostle, wouldn’t have come. And the world wouldn’t have been like this.

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call that this world now lies in a ‘nightmare’.

All of it was his own fault.

‘There is no time to regret!’

Lars bit his lower lip and jumped over the tall stone wall which appeared in front of him.

The paladins of Zenith church jumped behind them.

They landed lightly and tried to run to chase again, but Lars, which had been running in the front, was nowhere to be seen.

“You bastard, where are you hiding!”

The allies felt like they were in a maze as the buildings began to pile up.

The captain of the paladin clicked his tongue and ordered the subordinates to disperse and look around.

The paladins who were moving busily were wary of the surroundings and tried to search again.

“Kuak!

Until two arms popped out of the darkness and strangled him.

The paladin struggled to shake off the arm, but Lars clenched his teeth and increased the grip around their neck.

But the opponent was a paladin who had reached a high level. Armed with the holy power of Zenith, he was able to overpower Lars.

‘If I use holy power here…’

It was like shouting, I am here.

However, if he didn’t use it, he would die.

I wasn’t something to even worry about.

Lars’ eyes shone in gold, and he changed into the form of Holy Executioner.

At the same time, he released the arm strangling and extended the hand towards the back where the heart of the enemy was.

Puak!

“…!”

The captain of the paladins went wide-eyed as he looked at Lars’ hand piercing his chest.

His eyes rolled back as he immediately died, and Lars threw the corpse aside.

“Shit.”

The moment Lars used holy power, the paladins of Zenith who were around began to gather around him.

That one movement was pretty quick. You have to run through them all.

Can it be done?

“Give up. You cannot get out alive. Holy Executioner Lars Armetic.”

The one who was just killed was the captain, so the one who spoke now had to be the temporary captain.

Lars took the sword which the dead man had been holding.

The golden energy of the executioner moved to the blade and shone in the darkness.

“I have no intention of dying here.”

No matter what happened, he had to go to the Holy Land of Judgement.

Only then would Ricky wake up.

He didn’t know how the Zenith Church managed to find out about the Holy Land of Judgement. Still, things got so twisted that he had to move ahead with the determination to die.

‘Ricky… I am coming soon.’

Lars strengthened his resolved and moved to the paladins of Zenith.


Deep in the mountains, rarely visited by people.

A black portal opened with Jamie and Beiros walking out.

“This?”

Beiros looked at the verdant greenery that couldn’t be found in Devildom.

At the unfamiliar sight, he frowned and covered his nose.

“Isn’t this stench a joke?”

Having never smelled a dew-soaked forest, the smell gave Beiros a headache.

In addition to that, he was used to dull colors. Hence, the relaxing sight of warm sunlight penetrating through the forest felt foreign.

“What a terrible place. Why did you open the portal through here?”

Jamie didn’t know what to do with this guy, so he flicked him on the forehead.

“Ouch! Why do I suddenly have to take this!”

“I am so disappointed with your sense of aesthetics.”

“What is that supposed to mean.”

“Shut up and put this on your neck.”

Jamie tossed the necklace at Beiros as to where it came from.

Beiros looked at it

“What is this.”

“A necklace made from Gremia. If you hand it around the neck, your magic will not leak out.”

It was created by overlaying the power of Pyro’s holy power and starlight on Gremia.

Gremia could transform even a complex operative structure, but the level of completion was higher than expected.

Even if he passes by a priest, they will only feel discomfort with it but not know he is a demon.

“It is uncomfortable.”

“Hold it. It is an order.”

If the word order came out, then Beiros could no longer complain.

Because Jamie’s orders are absolute. And this is why he shouldn’t have said yes to the contract!

He didn’t regret it, though.

If he hadn’t gone under Jamie, he would have been treated worse than now.

Perhaps he would have already died on the battlefield.

“We head to the city first.”

“Do you know where this is?”

“Of course, I know. I put the coordinates here.”

Still, an accident could happen if he put the location in the middle of the city, so he put it in the forest.

Jamie soared high, followed by Beiros.

“Follow me.’

The two quickly crossed the mountain and found a huge city below.

A city in perfect symmetry with a huge tower in the center like it could reach the sky and a cross-shaped road around it.

“This place is…”

Beiros had an expression that seemed to say he remembered something.

“Familiar place?”

“Yes”

“What?”

“Because this is the place I attacked once.”

Right

The area to which Jamie set the coordinates was the Magic World!

Within the core of Devildom, this body absorbed all the energy created by the warped time.

In the meantime, the axis between the two dimensions was normalized, and it seemed like it was the same with Bless.

‘I told Ricky I would be back in one day.’

Not one day, but he took 3 months.

What is certain is that a day must have passed, which was why Jamie was here to check the date.

But even as time passed, something strange happened.

Upon landing on the South Boulevard, Jamie felt something strange, and he wasn’t the only one.

“So quiet?”

As Beiros said, not a single person was on the usually noisy street.

Jamie walked to see if there were people in the buildings.

‘None’

He could feel nothing. It was as if the city was emptied.

Jamie quickly moved to the central magic tower.

“Let’s go together!”

Beiros followed him, not knowing what had happened.


When Jamie arrived there, his anxiety doubled.

Because there was not a single magician in this supposed busy place

Standing right in front of the door, mana fell on him to confirm the identity.

[3rd elder Jamie Welton. Confirmed.]

The door with the sound of a woman’s machine, and Jamie went straight to the elevator to the top floor.

In the process, they hadn’t met any people.

“Who do I not see anyone? It is like they all went out together for a picnic.”

Beiros tried to lighten the atmosphere with a joke, but Jamie had a serious expression plastered on his face.

The elevator door, which reached the top, made a ding sound.

Jamie opened the door and went inside.

“… why is nobody here?”

Originally the 5th elder Luke is supposed to guard the place but not even his shadow could be seen.

Jamie frowned and teleported into his own office Beiros was calling, but he didn’t care.

He went straight to the lab.

As usual, beakers of reagents were all over as if something was happening.

Papers that looked like journals were visible, with wet marks visible on their pages.

‘They dried up a long time back.’

Probably a week.

There was no way the lab should stay empty like this. His disciples would have written a note.

At that moment, a thought flashed through his mind.

However, he thought it was unlikely.

Looking at the current situation, he thought it was complacency.

“I don’t know what happened while I was away… there is just one person in the Magic World who can do this.”

It isnt as extreme as Zenith in the previous life, but it is still a bad relationship that he had been involved with more often than he would have liked.

“Oblion, the God of Nothing.”

It was clear that this was his doing.
