Chapter 101

Disaster of Floods (5)


The situation became clear .  This Yoo Jonghyuk believed in something he shouldn’t have .

I shouted towards Lee Seolhwa, “Lee Seolhwa! Take the kids and escape from this island right now . The Disaster of Floods is different from the past . We must fight her together . If we don’t all fight―”

“Kim Dokja, don’t disturb me if you don’t want to die . ”  Yoo Jonghyuk came up behind me and grabbed me by the neck . All of a sudden, my body lost strength and my knees fell to the ground .

I bit my lip and exclaimed, “Yoo Jonghyuk, listen to me! The Shin Yoosung waking up now isn’t the Shin Yoosung you know . Once you meet her…”

I wanted to say more but my voice suddenly changed into a squeaky sound .  Dammit .  I used Hit a Pressure Point to gradually relieve the energy that Yoo Jonghyuk had released into my blood .

Now I had to subdue him…

Of course, no one in Seoul could subdue Yoo Jonghyuk .  No, there was only one .  That person was coming right now .

[The Disaster of Floods is waking up . ]

Along with the message, a green light emerged from the meteorite .  Finally, the hatching of the meteorite began .

I heard the voice of the intermediate dokkaebi .

[The incarnations of Seoul are really hot-tempered . Other areas aren’t so eager to wake up the disaster and are struggling to avoid the disaster…]

It was difficult for Bihyung to stall any longer .

[Do you miss your first companions? Now, prepare to face the disaster . Your companions are waiting for you in the other world . ]

[A new main scenario has arrived!]

The large meteorite split apart and revealed the interior that was reminiscent of a womb . A completely nude woman was trapped inside like a fossil .


It was a mysterious woman with pure white skin .  Her beautiful hair was tied up in a ponytail and wrapped around her body .  This was the appearance of the adult Shin Yoosung .

“A girl?”

“What is this? That is a disaster?”

Lee Jihye and Lee Hyunsung stopped while some incarnations secretly looked at her . They seemed to feel the severe gap in power .

[The exclusive skill ‘Fourth Wall’ has offset your mental shock . ]

The Disaster of Floods was different from other disasters .  Unlike other disasters who were weakened by the early hatching, the Disaster of Floods had no such thing .  The Disaster of Floods was stronger the earlier she woke up .

The moment that Shin Yoosung opened her eyes, white fur grew all over her body .  The white fur was reminiscent of an animal’s pelt and covered her body in the form of clothing .

Shin Yoosung slowly emerged from the meteorite and stepped on the ground .  She was like a child taking her first step .  She had just taken a step when everyone around her was frozen .

She was a species with a different strength .  Even the strong ones among the incarnations found it hard to move . However, there was a person who wasn’t troubled by her pressure at all .

“I have been waiting, Shin Yoosung . ”

Shin Yoosung slowly turned towards the man .

“…Captain?” It was a short encounter but Shin Yoosung instantly realized something .  “Captan was waiting for me… this isn’t the first time you have seen me? Right?”

Yoo Jonghyuk nodded .  “I need your help . ”

“Before that, what regression are you on now?”

“Why are you wondering?”

“I need to know . ”

Yoo Jonghyuk hesitated for a moment before replying .  “The third time . ”

“Ah, I see… Then you met me in the second regression . Right?”

“Yes . ”

She was the reason why Yoo Jonghyuk could reach the 46th scenario in the second regression .  It was thanks to the Disaster of Floods in front of us .

The Disaster of Floods was Shin Yoosung from the 41st world line .  She came to the past because of the Yoo Jonghyuk of the 41st regression .  Shin Yoosung was abandoned by his world, travelled for many years and eventually descended into a scenario of the past Earth .

“This is the third regression . I gave you information last time but you still failed?”

“That’s why I need more information . ”

The second regression Shin Yoosung  chose Yoo Jonghyuk and gave him all the information she knew . It was a final consideration for the Yoo Jonghyuk that she knew .  It was only for the second regression .

Shin Yoosung opened her mouth .  “…It took thousands of years . ”

I could feel countless years of fatigue piled up in Shin Yoosung’s expression .  The things done by the 41st round Yoo Jonghyuk were worse than murder .  Thousands of years . This period of time was enough to make a person collapse and for their ego to wear down .  Shin Yoosung endured all that time and finally became a disaster .

“Captain, do you know how hard it was for me?  I endured all these years to comply with your request . ”

“…What do you mean?”

“I wanted to see Captain . ”

Yoo Jonghyuk didn’t see the despair in Shin Yoosung’s smile . He opened his mouth in a nonchalant manner .  “Give me all the information from the 41st regression . Did the future me say anything?”

I wanted to shout at him but my voice wouldn’t come out .  Shin Yoosung’s eyes were as calm as the eye of a storm .  Only I could read the turbulent emotions hidden deeply in her eyes .

「 Nothing has changed . 」

Thanks to Yoo Jonghyuk, Shin Yoosung moved alone in the labyrinth of worlds for over 1,000 years .  She worked 200 years for the sake of humanity . She kept her promise to defend the world for 200 years .  Then for another 200 years, she remembered Yoo Jonghyuk and her companions .

Throughout the years, Shin Yoosung used the handful of memories to protect herself .  However, questions rose the more she remembered .

「 What does all of this mean? 」

Time erased her cause and sense of justice .  Once the cause disappeared, only the poor human truth remained .

She felt resentment towards Yoo Jonghyuk who turned her and her companions into a tool of ‘regression . ’ Loneliness and despair of losing the world permeated her bones . Shin Yoosung hated Yoo Jonghyuk who made her into this .

“Captain has never changed . ”

“Don’t say unnecessary things and turn over the information . I don’t have time . ”

“What are ‘we’ to Captain?”

“…What?”

“I did everything for you . I gave you one chance . However, Captain is still here . ” She graciously helped Yoo Jonghyuk in the second regression .  “You will keep going forward . You will turn people like me into tools and abandon me in the terrible labyrinth of worlds . It is all because of that goddamn sense of justice . I hate you for living in this world alone . ”

Now Shin Yoosung was facing the Yoo Jonghyuk of the third regression .

“There is only one thing I’m going to tell you . Captain can’t save anyone . ” Shin Yoosung laughed .  “Your third regression ends here . ”

Light emerged from Shin Yoosung’s hands the same moment I was able to release myself using the pressure point . I ran with all my strength and was hit by the ether storm .

“Get out of the way Yoo Jonghyuk!”

My belly was split open and my mind became blank . A massive crater formed in the centre of the island . Me and Yoo Jonghyuk jumped into the air and then rolled along the ground for a while .

It hurt . Shit . It really hurt .

“…Kim Dokja?” The surprised Yoo Jonghyuk looked down at my fallen self .

My breathing was fast and the sky had turned yellow .  It was true that I had been lucky so far .  The world was originally like this .  Only one thing had to go wrong for the world to be destroyed .

“Kim Dokja!”

Bastard, there was no need to make a big fuss .  I smiled at Yoo Jonghyuk and told him, “Hey, kill me . You usually want to kill me . ”

“What do you mean?”

“There is one minute left so I’ll let you kill me . Kill me . ”

Yoo Jonghyuk looked at my belly . I wanted to touch my belly but it felt like nothing was there . Blood constantly emerged from my mouth and I was dizzy enough to vomit . I kept struggling to breathe .

[The exclusive skill ‘Fourth Wall’ has offset some of the pain . ]

If it wasn’t for Fourth Wall then I might be weeping .  I couldn’t feel it last time because I died in one blow .

“Wait Kim Dokja! It isn’t too late . ”

“It is too late . ”

“It isn’t!”

“If you kill me now then you can gain coins . I’m already dying . Just kill me . ”

Yoo Jonghyuk made an expression that I hadn’t seen for a long time .  It was the expression he made when he first saw me on the subway .

“I can’t do it . ”

My vision blurred .  I could see Yoo Jonghyuk trying to stop the bleeding but I had already lost too much blood . More than anything… my internal organs were gone . There was no way I could live . It was unreasonable even for Lee Seolhwa .  My consciousness slowly scattered into the air like a collapsing sandcastle .

[You have died . ]

.

.

A moment later, a system message was heard .

[Current karma points: 100/100]

[You have enough karma points to use the privilege . ]

[The privilege of the King of No Killing is activated . ]

***

As expected, I opened my eyes in the darkness .  It was this state again .  It was a truly dirty feeling .

[Due to a collision error with your exclusive skill, the privilege of King of No Killing would be delayed . ]

[Thanks to your death, your consciousness has been completely liberated from the constraints of your body . ]

[Exclusive skill, Omniscient Reader’s Viewpoint stage 3 has been activated!]

I heard familiar messages in the darkness .  The next moment, a screen appeared in front of me .  It was the third person observation .

「 “Flood . ” 」

It was like the intermediate dokkaebi said . The Disaster of Floods was more than the other disasters combined . Shin Yoosung gave an order and the air distorted, making monsters pop out .

Monster Gate, the main feature of the legend grade attribute Beast Lord .  The numerous monsters domesticated by her as she travelled the dimensions were being released as nightmares on Earth .

「 “Tear, break, destroy . ” 」

Many 7th grade and 6th grade species could be seen . There were even some comparable to the 5th grade fire dragon .

「 “It is time for the disaster . ” 」

Nodeulseom exploded and waves covered Han River .  The confused incarnations became the food of monsters . The late-arriving ‘kings’ started giving orders . Then I saw a person with a fearsome aura behind Shin Yoosung .

「 “I’m going to kill you, Shin Yoosung . ” 」

…This crazy bastard? Yoo Jonghyuk’s ether blade moved through the air with a terrible sound .

Shin Yoosung avoided the attack and smiled lightly .  「 “Your level of Breaking the Sky Sword is quite high already? However, you can’t beat me no matter how you try . At most, it is this level?”

“You must turn in this round . ”

“We’ll see . I won’t die now . It might be possible if it was 10 years later . ”

“I will kill you . ”

“…Captain, aren’t you too agitated? What is the reason?” 」

I quietly prepared 1st person protagonist’s point of view .  In the current situation, it was best to transfer to Yoo Jonghyuk’s body .  I didn’t feel good but it would be a bit easier to deal with the disaster if I transferred to this guy .

「 “Something is strange . Are you really Captain?” 」 Then Shin Yoosung’s eyes shifted to my dead body .  「 “Who is that person? I haven’t never seen such a person before . ” 」

Yoo Jonghyuk stayed silent .  He just swung and swung his sword .  This was his only answer .  How long did he swing his sword?

Yoo Jonghyuk slowly opened his mouth .

「 “…That guy . ” 」

Shin Yoosung’s face gradually filled with doubt and disbelief .  The silent Yoo Jonghyuk finally spoke .

「 “He is my companion . ” 」
