Jamie felt something strange.

It felt like his whole body turned into gas and scattered around.

‘What just happened?’

All he did was hold God Killer in his hand, but then his vision suddenly turned hazy like smoke….

‘My eyes are fine.’

Fortunately, the vision seemed alright.

He moved his eyes to the left and right to see what had happened and found two lights.

One was in the form of a black bead, and the other was white.

-Um.

It was then.

A voice could be heard from the white bead. It was a voice he had heard before.

-The situation has… um, turned a bit strange.

It had to be the voice of the Siltair Kingdom’s king, who merged with God Killer.

Was his name Setiros?

‘What happened?’

Jamie couldn’t speak openly, but the words were being clearly conveyed.

-Oh! We can talk! Thank God.

The guy seemed relieved.

-I have been curious about what all of this is.

‘Do you know what this is?’

-I am not so sure, but there was something in my head that was hard to understand. But do you know why this is happening?

‘Why?’

-Isn’t the reason simple?

He continued to speak in an emotionless voice.

-The gem that took control of my body expressed its will by saying that it no longer wanted to be separated from you.

Expression of will.

In other words, God Killer began to assimilate with its owner so that it would no longer be separated.

The problem was that the desire was so much that even Jamie got dragged in.

Could it be that it was trying to link their souls?

‘You have become one with God Killer, yet you don’t know what it is up to?’

-Even if you question me, I have my own consciousness, and the stone has complete power over the body. Its will is just being expressed to me, although weakly. But its name is God Killer? Man, that is brutal.

‘Didn’t it even tell you its name?’

-Will it give its name to a thing?

Did he just call himself a thing?

Now it was clear that God Killer had taken control.

Well, just being conscious here was a surprising thing.

If it had been a normal person, he would have been completely eaten up by God Killer and turned into an empty shell.

This was proof that the king wasn’t a human.

-But don’t worry. Seeing that I see the future, I don’t think this would be my grave.

‘Come to think of it. You said it before… seeing tomorrow? Is it foresight?’

-Foresight…it’s not that amazing, but from a young age, I could feel that there was a tomorrow for me.

‘And if there was no tomorrow?’

-Die. Isn’t that obvious?

‘Then the coup d’état was done because there was no tomorrow?’

-Exactly. Actually, I had no greed for the throne, but I didn’t feel a tomorrow, so I guess that’s why I did the best I could to create a tomorrow for myself.

If Bianca was by his side, she would tear open his mouth. However, even though they chatted for a brief moment, it didn’t seem like he was lying.

Actually, Jamie didn’t know why he was feeling this way.

He just came to understand that the man acted to survive. And he only heard a few words, but Jamie noticed something odd.

‘It seems like he assimilated with God Killer as well.’

The man didn’t seem to know it, but Jamie felt it, as he could feel things now. Currently, he and God Killer seemed to be becoming one.

Then, it made sense for the body to be like this.

‘God killer… what are you thinking?’

It didn’t want to go too far, but was there somewhere in the world an artifact that wanted to become one with its owner?

Of course, Jamie made it, but that was why he was more shocked.

-Umm. But how do you think this will turn out?

‘How can I know if you don’t?’

-But you are the one who made this… ah… you are human?

‘Of course, I am human.’

-Well I guess so. I can feel that there is a tomorrow, so it doesn’t seem like I am going to die.

‘What useless foresight is that? You know about living the next day but nothing more specific.’

-Ahem.

Being able to know that there was a tomorrow was a great thing for normal humans. Jamie’s level of foresight had to be the same as Princess Isabel’s, and his own Future Walker didn’t work now.

He tried it several times, but strangely, the ability itself couldn’t be operated.

-Anyway, how long should it be…

The king couldn’t speak as the two beads were beginning to merge into one and a strong light shone at them.

Jamie just looked at it. Even he couldn’t predict what was happening.

And it was then…

‘This!’

Jamie didn’t have a physical body, but it felt like something was slipping out of his body.

A black stick with two shorter sticks crossed at the end.

A crude form that the Black Suit had before he absorbed it.

What was inside the skin got pulled out, and that wasn’t all.

The bracelet Perfect Cell and All Might came out too.

‘No way…’

Jamie conjured up the image of trying to reach for it, and scattered particles came together and began to form his hand and arm.

A purple aura stained his fingers as he realized what he needed to do next.

Jamie mumbled while carefully spreading out black mana towards the four pieces.

“Fusion.”

He could feel it running through his body.

As Jamie watched, his magical realization unfolded, Starlight began to bloom, and a dazzling light burst out.

The light covered all four items at once, and the three items merged into one.

And the medium through which this happened was the Black Suit.

The artifacts of Perfect Immunity, Absolute Defense, and Killing of God harmonized around Black Suit making Jamie a bit lost in the bizarre phenomena he was looking at.

Even he wasn’t sure what he was doing. But one thing was certain to him.

‘God Killer, what you chose is my victory.’

God Killer existed in sorrow for a long time, and at the same time, he agonized over how he should have stuck to his owner.

And the conclusion.

[Never let my owner get defeated.]

Was it because he was defeated by the 12 Gods that the two of them got separated?

If that was the case, it was enough to give its owner stronger power and make him win.

If that happens, then they would never have to part ways again.

This intense desire turned into a wish, and at this moment, he was trying to make the wish come true.

‘I understand you.’

Fortunately, that was Jamie’s wish too.

The entire body began to change.

Jamie stretched out his hand.

In the space made by God Killer, both black mana and Starlight could be used. Normally it would have been impossible to use both at once, but right now, he was evolving.

“Let’s go together for a better future.”

Flash!

And the light flashed brightly.


Jormungand thrust her scythe at the neck of the black monster rushing toward her.

Although she did get a promotion as the one with the 13th holy power, the monsters of God Killer were annoying.

Fortunately, this was just half the power of God Killer.

If it were in its perfect form, it would have been difficult for them to block the monsters.

“How long should we stop?”

Prometheus moved beside her and asked, wiping the sweat off his face.

“Your strength is quite daunting.”

“For such things, I don’t want to borrow the power from those ones.”

“You would end up consuming a lot of energy.”

Bang!!

While the two were talking, Behemoth was trampling on several monsters at the same time with its massive feet.

Jormungand clicked her tongue as she witnessed this.

“Ignorant idiot.”

“They are coming again.”

“Uh.”

She raised her scythe again as she gathered black holy power and threw her weapon like a boomerang to cut their heads.

Prometheus also performed a spell to block the monsters.

Just how much longer?

It was then that the ground beneath shook.

“… something is moving from below.”

Jormungand stopped the scythe and looked at the ground. The black monsters that were charging suddenly became like spilled ink and began to leak to the ground.

-What is this now?

At this, Behemoth went close to the two and asked.

“Seems like something that the Lord did.”

Prometheus gasped and sat down on the ground. Whether this sudden shaking of the ground was due to a natural reason or not, he was exhausted.

He wondered how long the shaking would last, but then it stopped, so Behemoth decided to return to his small form.

“Is this the end?”

“No.”

Jormungand’s senses were telling her that something was happening below the ground. She could feel it expanding, and she shouted,

“Move away!”

“Why?”

“Don’t ask! Just get as far from here as you can!”

Jormungand quickly overcame the resistance and began to run.

Behemoth followed her, and Prometheus sighed at the power he felt from below and moved through space.

The area where they were previously standing got swallowed up by a huge force, and the entire area was covered in a pillar of light.

“Such power…!”

Even Behemoth shuddered at this. He could feel that this was something stronger than the Dragon God.

What was certain was that the vibration had probably spread all over the continent.

“There it is.”

The pillar of light gradually faded, and the palace disappeared, leaving no trace.

Even the sky, which was covered with clouds, was now forming into a cluster of stars.

Beneath that was a man surrounded by light and darkness.

It was hard to see, but Jormungand could identify the person.

“Lord.”

Jamie.

With his eyes closed, he descended to the ground, and Jormungand was the first one to rush there.

She moved her body and broke through the unknown force.

“Yah! Wait for me!”

Behemoth also ran, and Prometheus followed him.

When they arrived, they all stood still, even Jormungand, so Behemoth tried to ask her.

“…”

But decided to stay silent.

In front of them, their Lord was surrounded by black and white.

And something changed.

They could tell the two apart, the white and the black, and Prometheus quickly cast black mana on his hand.

Pssssss.

The two energies of black and white began to subside, and Jamie raised his head, looking behind.

All three of them caught their breath.

“You worked hard.”

Having said that, Jamie smiled.

And there, in his eyes, was the universe.
