“Canon… kuak…”

Mayatrey clasped her hands as she continued to climb.

As she had just witnessed new traces of Canon for the first time in 700 years, Jamie couldn’t figure out her emotions.

Jamie sat next to her and gently patted her on the back.

She cried a lot.

Having calmed down a little, Mayatrey opened her mouth.

“Canon was a blunt man. And he was the silent type. Even though he seemed happy, he expressed his emotions.”

However, the words written in his diary were pure expressions of his emotions which she wasn’t aware of.

Even though it wasn’t much, it meant a lot to her.

“He said he loved me, but never said it out loud…”

Tears welled up again.

It was because old memories overwhelmed her. However, she could never see him again.

He spoke to her heart through the diary, but it was painful not to be able to respond.

“Canon loved you and you still love him. I believe Canon will live forever in your heart.”

“… how is a small kid like you saying such nice stuff?”

Mayatrey smiled at Jamie’s words.

She wiped her tears and wrapped her arms around her knees.

“I want to go back to those days.”

“Everyone does.”

After 66,666 years, he was reincarnated and had already spent another 7 years.

‘Past.’

What if this was regression rather than reincarnation?

He wasn’t sure which was better.

Diablo Volfir at that time was hard to compare with Jamie.

“By the way.”

Jamie was in deep thought when Mayatrey spoke up.

Her sad face turned suddenly cold.

“W-why are you looking at me like that?”

“What are you?”

Mayatrey leaned slightly towards Jamie and continued.

“You! You aren’t an ordinary dark magician.”

“Uh… I just learned dark magic…”

“No. The others might not notice, but I can.”

She was the dragon deeply entangled with a dark magician called Canon.

Not only that.

“I told you. I did everything I could to unseal the diary. Did you think that I didn’t use black magic?”

“Uh? You learned black magic?”

“Are you crazy? I brought one.”

“Kidnapped.”

“it was an agreement. I told him to follow me if he didn’t want to die, and he said he would.”

Wasn’t that threatening and kidnapping?

But Jamie didn’t say it out loud.

“Well, I made him use black mana too. But the diary didn’t respond.”

“…”

“Above all, your black mana! Was that mana the basis of dark magic?”

What kind of answer did Jamie have to give to Mayatrey so that she’d stop?

He sighed and said.

“I am the magician who is pursuing Canon’s legacy.”

“Everything that Canon had was left behind. You are lying.”

“No. I haven’t received anything directly, but Canon and I are pursuing the same path. Calling it that wouldn’t be wrong.”

Mayatrey’s eyes narrowed.

She stared at him for a while and then asked.

“Are you going to fight the 12 Gods too?”

“Yes?”

“Canon didn’t write everything in it, but it isn’t that hard to figure out the context. Canon was angry with the 12 Gods and hated the dragon clan who sympathized with them. if you do so as well, you are going down the same path as Canon…”

“Right.”

Jamie nodded.

“It is impossible.”

“…”

“I hate the 12 Gods too. The same goes for the dragon clan. However, what is impossible is impossible.”

Even Canon, who possessed a power comparable to a dragon, was stopped by the dragon clan.

The power of gods encompassed the dragon clan.

She couldn’t even imagine just how strong they were.

“I know that you are a human child with great potential. Sooner or later, you will certainly get the power equal to that of a dragon.”

Mayatrey acknowledged Jamie’s talent.

“But that wouldn’t be enough. Not enough isn’t even the right word.”

Even Canon couldn’t handle more than two dragons.

Besides, he fought the strong Aegos and lost despite having Mayatrey on his side.

“There will be hardships that you cannot even imagine, I have lived through those for more than 2,000 years.”

“…”

“Give up. Just live happily as a human.”

Failure was predetermined.

It was impossible to imagine what a terrible future he would have if he went Canon’s path.

All she could do was make him give up.

Jamie answered her.

“A long time ago, there was a man who challenged the 12 Gods alone.”

“Who?”

“At first, the man had colleagues. Those colleagues trusted the man, and the man trusted them.”

Jamie closed his eyes.

“But one, two, three… those colleagues began to disappear. Some of them had died fighting, some had run away and some, had betrayed him.”

Every day was despair.

It was so painful that he wanted to give up.

Sometimes, he thought that giving up would be better.

“But the man didn’t give up. Even when he lost everything and was left alone, he threw away his emotions and waged war against the Gods.”

“…”

“In the end, the man failed. He was sealed in a space for aeons. However, the man didn’t give up. He vowed to himself that one day, in the distant future, he would rise again.”

In a space of black nothingness.

Diablo Volfir longed for unseen hope.

And someone responded to that.

“Canon. Maybe someone before him too. And finally me.”

Jamie opened his eyes.

“I came here by inheriting the man’s legacy.”

“You.”

“So I can’t give up. Even if I die, for the sake of future generations.”

His small fists clenched.

“I will kill the 12 Gods.”

A firm expression.

Mayatrey couldn’t stop him.

“Follow me.”

“Huh?”

She got up and walked somewhere.

Jamie just followed her without knowing the reason.

They arrived at Canon’s tombstone.

She walked over there and stroked the tombstone gently.

“If it is you, Canon will allow it.”

“What…?”

“Accept this.”

Then, something flew at him.

Jamie caught it in a rush, and his eyes widened as he looked at it.

“Can I really take this?”

“Take it before I change my mind.”

Mayatrey answered without looking at him.

Jamie looked at the bracelet in his hand, the Perfect Cell. He thought he’d have to ask for it, but she was the one who offered it to him.

Jamie had no idea what had changed her mind.

So he just thanked her.

“I will use it carefully.”

“When everything is done, give it back.”

But it was his?

He wanted to say it, but Jamie decided to just take it.

The Perfect Cell was too big on his hand, but when worn, it shrunk in size.

And

Woon!!!

The Perfect Cell began to emit purple light.

Having recognized its master, it greeted him after a long time.

“It seems like it recognizes you as its master.”

Mayatrey said with a startled face.

Jamie smiled as he stroked it.

‘Long time no see.’

Mayatrey laughed as she leaned on the tombstone while looking at Jamie.

And then said.

“If That time comes.”

Jamie looked at her eyes.

“I will do everything I can to help you.”

“Thank you.”

“Enough now. Your family must be waiting.”

“… Be safe.”

Mayatrey looked at Jamie’s back as he walked, and mumbled.

“The dream you had is still continuing, Canon.”

She snapped her fingers.

The rain falling on the mountain ranges stopped.


Lars swept his wet blonde hair back and began to sense everything around him.

However, he could feel nothing.

‘Was what the commander said really true?’

He thought that Jamie must have survived.

But it has been 2 hours, and he hasn’t seen him.

It was late. How could he face Sears now?

“Jamie… damn it!”

He clenched his fists.

“I will definitely find you. Even if it’s just the body, I will look for it.”

“So strong-willed!”

“I have to be. Jamie is that kind of kid.”

“What kind of kid?”

“Great magic talent is one thing, but he is also a good kid who gets along well with everyone without being shy. In particular, there was one incident last time…”

Lars, who was talking, felt strange and turned around.

“You see me?”

“…”

“What is it?”

“J-Jamie!”

Lars went to hug Jamie, who was floating in the air, as hard as he could.

Jamie moved back, and Lars ended up hitting the water.

“Puah!”

“Hahaha! You look like a mouse drenched in water!”

“You, you come here!”

“Let’s go back.”

“Okay! Hahaha! Madam will be very pleased!”

Jamie quickly flew to where his family was, as he listened to Lars’ laughter.

“Jamie!”

The first to run to him was Sears.

She looked at her safe son and hugged him tightly. She cried a lot. Due to that, Jamie’s heart almost reached his mouth.

“Brother-euuk!”

Sarah knew that something terrible had happened to her brother, so she held his legs and cried.

“Damn it… I believed you.”

Ricky shed tears of joy, and Anna said she was glad as she wept on her brother’s arm.

“Really glad. Really… We have been blessed. Thank you, sir Lars.”

“I haven’t done anything.”

The sky was dark.

The rain stopped.

The sun could be seen shining behind the dark clouds.

Jamie patted Sears ’ back and looked back.

‘See you next time.’

He said goodbye to Mayatrey.

And the carriage departed for Apton once again.
