Hate.

At that, Jamie closed his eyes.

God Killer wasn’t an ego item but one with its own will.

It particularly demonstrated a strong will toward matters pertaining to him and had been separated from its master for tens of thousands of years.

And it only had half its body now.

“You just showed up, and it is already yelling that it hates you. Actually, it isn’t shouting. It’s just a metaphorical sense. My head hurts, though.”

The king rubbed his head.

He didn’t like the fact that his body had changed.

But other than that, it wasn’t so bad.

He always felt lazy, but now he felt alive. He raised his right hand and looked at it.

“Is this how you feel?”

When he clenched his fist and twisted his arm, it began to change into a certain shape, something elongated and triangular—a weapon.

There was bluntness, so he realized it was a sword.

But the strength God Killer gave him felt unusual.

“I will be fighting you with this.”

“…”

“Why are you silent?”

The king tilted his head and watched Jamie, who only closed his eyes and did nothing.

But he wasn’t going to wait now.

With the jewel within him and the new strength he held, he was sure of having a tomorrow.

He could bring down everyone if he held this. Then all he had to do was….

Something like fire blazed within him. The whites of his eyes turned dark, and the king lowered himself.

He had never fought in his life, but it felt like he had been through war countless times.

‘Take him down with a single shot.’

The jewel didn’t want the man to die.

Did it hate him or not? Actually, he didn’t even know what this hate was

As black mana engulfed him, he bent his upper body enough to be parallel to the floor, and kicked the ground.

Pung!

He moved like an arrow.

The black mana increased the king’s physical abilities, and as a result, he was experiencing things he hadn’t felt before. But it wasn’t shocking.

It made no sense to him.

He did have his identity, but then his body felt different, like it was something new.

‘Everything feels slow.’

As his body moved so fast, it felt like the world was crawling beside him and the opponent’s chest was right ahead.

Just push the right arm out, and it will be done.

In a world as slow as this, anything could be done.

“I am sorry.”

But things in the real world never go as planned.

Obviously, everything but him should have slowed, but he heard the voice too clearly.

Bang!!!

And his eyes widened.

He didn’t even have the time to figure out what was happening.

Trying to grasp the situation while his body took the shock wasn’t easy either. Fortunately, the pain wasn’t too great.

He immediately tried to think about what had happened.

‘…I was thrown to the ground.’

Someone’s hand was holding his head.

It was Jamie Welton’s hand.

“I am sorry, but forgive me for this one too.”

The voice spoke, and the scene changed.

The king felt like he was flying faster than when he moved.

Bang!

This time, when his body hit the wall, his right arm transformed into a cannon and moved on its own.

His vision was blurry, and he couldn’t see well, but he could tell there was a person.

Kwag!

A black beam of light erupted from his arm and turned into a cannon.

“You know better than anyone.”

The arm that turned into a cannon was forced down. Wherever the blurry image moved, the direction of light went and shot there.

Jamie said,

“Let’s not do this.”

“… this is like a fight between two whales, destroying a nearby shrimp in the process.”

The king felt his body change again.

As he felt a change in his right leg, five small gun barrels came out.

He fired at close range.

Boom!!!

The smoke spread.

It seemed like he was able to hit the target now.

As soon as he felt the hand holding him drop, his left arm split into tentacles.

And he opened his mouth.

His lungs swelled up significantly, and he was repulsed as black mana flowed down his throat.

Kwaang!

A pitch-black Breath pierced the smoke caused by the shots.

Bright yellow eyes began to appear, twitching and looking around.

And his gaze halted at the empty space, as his lungs began to expand once again. Another Breath was expelled.

‘I-I feel like I will die from choking.’

Although his identity and mind were fine, his body seemed to be moving like a marionette.

Gugugu.

The ceiling trembled as if it were about to collapse at any time.

“Isn’t this more than enough?”

Jamie said while removing the dust.

His clothes were a mess, but not a single wound was on his body.

The king was shocked.

Even though he didn’t know what power it had, the information on the jewel said that what he shot was a Breath.

And he also used a cannon from his arm and guns from his legs. Although it wasn’t known what creature this thing was, it seemed to be as strong as a dragon.

Did it make sense for a human to have only his clothes ripped out?

‘Didn’t they say dragons can destroy a nation?’

The king didn’t know exactly who the man in front of him was.

He had no information other than the ‘one man’ who owned the jewel. He didn’t know Jamie Welton.

‘A fight would be impossible with the kind of power he has.’

He couldn’t win this fight anymore.

He knew it.

He had to have realized it when the jewel held no intention to kill the man.

‘Was it just angry?’

In the eyes of the king, the jewel held a grudge.

Like a little kid.


A monster resembling a scorpion with five stings was scurrying around.

Prometheus went up as he performed a technique to kill it all at once.

Bang!!

It was a huge shock that was enough to crush the ground below, but just a little portion of it cracked the scorpion.

‘So tough.’

The claw countered right away.

He jumped to the side with black mana wrapped around his right-hand palm.

With the left hand clenched into a fist, the index and middle fingers touched.

[Dye]

[Black Color Right Palm.]

Pat!

Jet black energy erupted from the palm of his hand and smashed the scorpion monster.

The scorpion monster’s skin turned black right away.

And he put his left hand on his chest before stretching out.

[Crushing]

[Strength]

Puak!

The shell, which had cracked a little, widened up more and more.

Prometheus watched with his purple eyes, summoned Road Flower to make petals, and, at the same time, destroyed the monster.

Kwaang!

The shell fragments scattered on the ground and disappeared as dust. And Prometheus sighed as he looked at what the other two were doing.

“Awful.”

Jormungand was slaughtering monsters left and right with black holy power, and Behemoth was trampling on them.

The problem was that the black monsters weren’t being pushed back so easily despite that.

Just like the scorpion monster he faced, monsters beyond their imaginations were being summoned,

Just what was this God Killer?

Prometheus moved for another monster, which was rushing for him with a wave of magic, and attacked it with another skill.

Kukukuku!

“You will stop it?”

Did this mean that they would only rush in?

Prometheus grabbed it by the head and threw it to the ground.

Bang!!

The magic condensed, and black mana exploded right at its head.

And he sighed.

Killing a few of them was difficult enough, and when he killed one, more were coming out.

The ability to devour the souls of those who were killed and use them like this—the first time he heard it, it sounded absurd.

“Phew. When will this end?”

He felt something move beneath him and adjusted his body.

He wasn’t sure what it was, but it seemed like it would take more time to solve this.


“I will stand still. If you are still angry, you can do a couple more.”

Jamie said while spreading his arms wide. He was completely defenseless.

Seeing that he didn’t even feel mana around, it didn’t seem like he would even defend.

Two Breaths couldn’t deal with this man, so there was no guarantee of what would happen, but being defenseless meant anything could happen.

Still, it felt like he was seriously considering this jewel.

‘Will you forgive him now?’

The king asked the jewel, but it didn’t respond.

But he felt his body wriggle again, trying to change.

How much anger had it accumulated in order to refuse to forgive the partner it had been with?

‘Although I am not in a position to think this.’

He was still the man who killed his own brothers, both guilty and innocent, and built a throne on their blood.

There was even a brother who prayed for forgiveness.

But he just killed that brother because he thought that one day he would come to steal his throne.

Compared to that, at least the jewel had a reason.

It was reasonable to be angry with its owner, who had ignored it for thousands of years.

‘Do whatever you want. I will…well…as long as I can see a tomorrow…I don’t care.’

…was what he said.

‘What are you changing to this time?’

His upper body rapidly turned huge, turning round.

His chest and stomach gradually expanded and began to change into some huge barrel.

A three-layered barrel with a clicking sound instead of a hole ahead and the front covered like a lens.

He couldn’t confirm it, as he couldn’t see much, but this felt like something that would cause an aftershock.

His arms and legs turned into a support stand for the body, and the yellow eyes on his forehead changed into monocles.

Kiiik!

The cogs turned and began to analyze the body of the opponent.

And the length of the barrel adjusted to it.

It was to control the movement in order to immediately take down the enemy.

And the cylinder was moved to the left and right accordingly, and the mana was being contracted.

It was a method for measuring its destructiveness.

‘Quite unpleasant though.’

With the information he was getting about the changes in his body, he now felt that he was just a toy.

Apart from knowing the changes in his body, he realized that this attack was going to be different from before.

And the opponent would surely be hurt by this.

If he didn’t defend himself, he would die.

Still, his arms were wide open.

“I don’t know what this is.”

The king didn’t understand why he was saying this.

Normally, he wouldn’t have cared what happened to him.

‘Have I changed since I became one with this?’

For some reason, it felt like he wouldn’t have killed his brothers now.

But this attack will not stop now.

Everything was ready and sorted, and even the weakness of the opponent was visible through the lens now that the barrel was ready to fire.

Swish!

The wind blew.

“And here it goes.”

The attack was coming.

He must have felt it too, but he felt like he should tell the human.

Though that wouldn’t change anything.

Wong!

Through the lens, everything around them began to turn blue.

The mana was being materialized.

And the king saw it.

Kukukuku-!!!

He could feel the difference in power in the dragon’s Breath.

The only information left was that the original owner of this power existed long ago.

The God Killer didn’t kill and take the power, but it absorbed what was around.

Maybe it was a sign of nature.

What was certain was that even the court mages of the Siltair Kingdom would not be able to understand this.

It was 99.99% now.

“Fire”

—————––!!!!!!!

The light was so strong that the entire underground shone.

Jamie had to close his eyes as he felt how great it was.

The huge light that started from deep underground penetrated the ground and engulfed the entire capital up to the sky.
