＃When he returned, his family was ruined (171)
The archbishop falls.
The religious leader’s eyes as he looked at it were extremely grave. He immediately cut off contact and lifted up another crystal ball. After waiting for a while, light came into the crystal ball.
The head of the church saw the girl smiling magically and greeted her.
“It’s been a while. Anna.”
―Hello, leader. what’s the matter?
“The Seven Seas have served their purpose.”
―By the Seven Seas… Are you talking about that idiot who studies immortality?
―Did you make a major failure in your research? Still, I knew that idiot wasn’t impatient.
An old man chasing a vain dream.
It was the essence of the Seven Seas judged by the girl. That ambition was useful in its own way, so the religious leader took advantage of it.
If the Seven Seas failed, it was likely due to its ambition. You must have become impatient with your body growing older day by day.
Then he must have hastily coveted the power of immortality.
The cult leader shook his head.
“Strictly speaking, the immortal power itself is not his cause of death. “It happened.”
―The Seven Seas were attacked? To whom?
The girl’s eyes sparkled.
Even though he was a stupid person, the power he had was not helpless. Is there talent in Heidern capable of hunting down the Seven Seas?
‘Oh, there is one person.’
He was known to have the greatest power among the transcendents existing in Heidern. If his skills are as rumored, it would not be surprising if he hunts down the Seven Seas. Of the seven thrones, the seventh throne was the one with the weakest power.
―Not only did he pretend to be dead and go into hiding, but he stabbed his allies in the back. Humans are also very cunning if you just look at them. Isn’t that right, teacher?
The cult leader laughed.
“Well, it’s not wrong. However, it is not Gerond who pushed the Seven Seas.”
-huh? Then who said it? Are other transcendents moving?
“White flame refers to a flame that never goes out.”
“That’s half true.”
The girl’s face hardened.
For them, it is a name they will never forget until the day they die.
The white flame was the flame that the first ancestor of that damned family used for the first time, and it was also the flame that appeared once again after so many years.
‘The Seven Seas were hit by white flames?’
If the flame was as rumored, it would not be strange for him to covet the unfinished power of immortality. If you are directly hit by an unquenchable flame, shouldn’t you do something to reduce the flame?
Ardan’s descendants have grown to the point where they pose a threat to the Seven Seas.
This was truly surprising news.
-That’s interesting. I thought he was on the verge of being superhuman at best.
“The news is late. We should arrive at the Kingdom of Limedell in no time. “Have you not heard from the king?”
-Don’t you already know that that guy is an idiot? He’s such an idiot that he can’t even properly recite reports from his subjects.
The girl said with her mouth pouting.
―I heard that you recently found out that there was a fight against an old warlock at the Council of Ministers? The news is a bit late here.
―It would be difficult if you gave me a stupid doll and pretended not to notice! This isn’t my fault.
“okay. “I’m sorry.”
-You just need to know. So are you going to leave that Ethan alone? I think the growth rate is too fast for a human.
The girl, who was about to say something more, pursed her lips. I could have guessed what was going on without even hearing it.
If he grows up that quickly, wouldn’t he become a big threat to the church someday?
The corner of the religious leader’s mouth, hidden by his robe, slightly rose. The girl who saw that quickly continued speaking.
―Well, since it’s nearby, I think I can add it to my collection. Of course, our strict teacher would have to give permission.
“no. “There is no need for that.”
-They say it’s not always. What on earth is correct?
“Do you want to stretch your doll?”
-If it’s worth using? Oh, if you’re recommending someone as stupid and incompetent as the king, I’m really going to refuse this time. I also don’t have any seats anymore.
“I know a guy who may be foolish, but has abilities.”
―Hoo… who is it?
―Seven thrones? Can I make him mine? No, you said he died in the first place? I’m not a body cleaner.
“He didn’t die. “I just lost my senses.”
Greetings exchanged when sending off the Seven Seas.
The reason I gave such a greeting was because I felt that the ‘personality’ that made up the Seven Seas was disappearing.
The excessive regenerative power was changing each and every cell that made up him. I guess I’m in the process of turning into some kind of mutation.
-Hmm… That’s kind of okay.
“Let’s put it to good use.”
―Joath! Now he’s mine! It would be difficult to ask for it back.
“okay. Go to Heidern’s branch. “He is there.”
-Let me follow your orders. So goodbye!
The light in the crystal sphere became dim.
The religious leader, who was thinking deeply, called one of the archbishops.
“Did you call me, Master of the Dragon?”
The religious leader spoke to the archbishop who showed utmost courtesy.
“Is there any invitation left from the church?”
“yes. “There is only one gold, but three pieces of silver remain.”
“I need to use gold.”
“All right. However, in order to utilize it, I think we will need to coordinate with the Zeno Empire.”
“I’ll take care of that. “Send an invitation soon.”
“Who can I send it to?”
“Head of Ardan.”
The archbishop was shocked. For the church that revered the dragon race like gods, Ardan was a name that always brought a sense of discomfort.
A moment of silence.
The answer flowed out.
The cult leader nodded.
* * *
Thanks to the Archbishop’s flight, the battle immediately turned in one direction. The wizards begin to surrender one by one.
But there was no mercy.
There were very few people who fought until the end. Duke Himos and two bishops.
All three were the leaders in this attack. Although they did their best to resist, perhaps because they knew that they had no chance of surviving the moment they were captured, the bodies of the three were already close to being completely destroyed. Ysera’s flames cooked the Dragon of Destruction’s skin to the point where blisters burst, and the body of the bishop fighting Mileton was covered in sword marks.
It was Duke Himos who presented the most miserable scene.
Duke and Lionel.
Although he was resisting the narrowing siege of the two transcendents, with all his life force being sucked out of him, his body was slowly drying out. In the first place, he was not skilled enough to deal with two transcendental beings.
In such a situation, since they are using all their strength to fight against the two, catastrophe is almost certain.
A completely tilted charter.
Himos’ face darkened.
The number of reversals did not come to mind.
There was only one thing I was holding in my hand.
Immortal Hwan (不滅丸).
It was an item I received after conducting research with the archbishop for a long time. Enormous regenerative power. If I had that, I might have been able to escape this crisis.
The image of the Archbishop leaving continued to flash in Himos’ mind. As soon as the arm was cut off, several more arms grew.
The archbishop’s face at that time was filled with fear. It was as if he had never dreamed that the side effects would explode in such a way.
Even the Archbishop, who was transformed into a half-human, half-dragon-like form through the higher-ranking Strong Dragon Style, could not overcome the side effects.
What about yourself, even though you have a human body?
‘Even if you use Kangryongsik, you won’t be able to prevent the side effects.’
All he knows is at best a low-level Kang Ryong-sik. How much regenerative power can a fragile body withstand?
It won’t be a long time.
That’s why I couldn’t bear to swallow the immortal pill.
This was poison.
It is a poison that may help you get out of your current situation, but it will force you to face a miserable death someday.
Hundreds of arms and hundreds of legs.
Maybe it would turn into several heads. I didn’t know that I would never be able to be called human again.
Even for Himos, a powerful warlock who offered countless human sacrifices, this was an extremely scary thing.
However, what was truly scary was that as my vitality disappeared, my judgment became more and more inclined toward swallowing the herbal medicine.
Himos gritted his teeth.
I’m terribly afraid.
As if losing one’s senses due to the enormous regenerative power is not enough, the future of wandering for nearly eons comes to mind.
Perhaps it would be described as a terrible monster in a corner of history books.
One of the monsters wandering the continent who went half-crazy in pursuit of power.
His hands were shaking.
Not only would escaping the siege through the Immortal Pill be enough, but wouldn’t it also be possible to seize the opportunity for revenge without losing one’s wit? Just because the archbishop did that, there was no way he had to endure the same pain.
Lionel’s sword grazed his chest.
Red blood soared high into the sky.
In an instant, a huge desire completely took over my heart.
The most basic human desire is survival.
‘I can’t die like this!’
It was like that.
What on earth would Agiles do if she closed her eyes so absurdly? He had to survive.
He shouted urgently.
“…stop! “I surrender!”
At those words, Lionel let out a laugh as if it were absurd.
“her. Do you think this situation will end well if you surrender?”
“…No, I guess not. “No matter what you do, you won’t be able to avoid death.”
“Why on earth would a person who would know that…”
A very short period of time as the conversation continued. Himos’s hand quickly entered his arms. The Duke saw this and rushed in like a hawk with his eyes shining.
Il-kwon pierced my heart. It was a power filled with merciless power, as if it did not care one bit about life or death.
He rolled on the floor, his chest dented by the vicious blow. Duke’s mana poured out toward his limbs. Mana with brutal power that bursts blood vessels and shakes the inside.
The warlock, whose vitality was almost completely drained, could no longer survive. The color in Himos’ pupils gradually faded.
His hand was clenched tightly until the very end, unable to let go of something.
Duke began to approach the fallen warlock. He clenched his fists as if he was going to kill him if he sensed any sign of life.
Duke, who was examining the warlock’s body, spoke calmly.
The end result of a duke who controlled a kingdom seemed too vain. Immediately afterwards, he looked at Ethan and shouted loudly.
“Peacock! “Come this way!”
Lionel and Ethan approached the body.
“Look at this.”
Duke pointed at something. The warlock’s grip is tight. A strange energy was felt within it.
“That’s unusual. It seems like an elixir containing the power of regeneration. No way…”
An image of the archbishop appeared in their minds. Arms that grew in an instant. The wound disappeared quickly. The reason it broke through the siege in an instant was because of its enormous regenerative power.
The reason why the archbishop was able to obtain such power was….
“It seems that the elixir the archbishop ingested is of a similar type to this…”
Everyone’s eyes focused on the black ring.
