Chapter 188

I was hit by the pouring flames and pain started to spread through my entire body .

…It hurt .  It really hurt .  My skin cracked from the high temperature and my eyeballs felt ripe .

Jung Heewon endured her tears and kept attacking me .  The flames that destroyed evil burned away at my wounds and all my flesh .

I probably would’ve fainted from the pain if it wasn’t for Fourth Wall .  Even so, my body didn’t break .

The shocked Jung Heewon asked, “What is going on with your body?”

“…The damage is probably too insufficient . ”

The rate of my stamina consumption was accelerated but it wasn’t enough to kill me in the remaining time . I didn’t expect that even Jung Heewon wouldn’t be sufficient .

Honestly, I was at a loss for words .  Maybe it was because I was judged to be ‘narrative-grade . ’

[The nebula ‘Vedas’ is rejoicing in your pain . ]

[The remaining attack time is 10 minutes . ]

[The constellations of the nebula ‘Papyrus’ are making a toast . ]

This was just the beginning . A huge shock wave spread through the hall and my body started to grow again .

[The third phase of the ’73rd Demon King’ is starting . ]

[Your body has become harder . ]

We had now reached the third phase .  I shouted without feeling panic, “Everybody, stay awake! Do you remember?”

The party members nodded and skillfully changed the formation .  However, I could see that Cho Youngran’s Mechanical Gateway Array Method had slightly collapsed from my explosive increase in magic power .

In the end, Cho Youngran coughed up blood and sat down .  The timing of this was faster than expected . Demonic energy started to fill the whole hall and the party members became weaker as they received debuffs .

Now I had to borrow a hand that I hadn’t wanted to borrow .

[The constellation who doesn’t yet have a name is looking at his incarnation . ]

Shin Yoosung trembled after receiving my message and shook her head .  My incarnation Shin Yoosung had felt my determination long ago .

‘Ahjussi, I can’t do it . Please . ’

I stared at Shin Yoosung .

This was the relationship between a constellation and incarnation .  Rather than speaking one hundred words, I conveyed my indescribable and deep emotions just by looking at them . Shin Yoosung finally burst out crying as the violent emotions were one-sidedly passed on .

‘I understand . ’

The pain and bitterness in the small child’s heart resonated and as a constellation, I could hear it more than anyone .

Shin Yoosung held the other child’s hand and stood up .  “Gilyoung . Let’s go . We have to do it . ”

Shin Yoosung’s eyes shone yellow . The characteristics of Beast Master were started to manifest . There was a great trembling in the hall and I soon heard a tearing sound . A giant beast’s snout appeared in the gap .

The chimera dragon .  The giant monster that would later become a destruction species flapped its giant wings as it was summoned to the hall . However, the chimera dragon hesitated instead of attacking when it saw me .

[The 2nd grade monster species, the ‘Chimera Dragon’ has refused its master’s command . ]

[The 2nd grade monster species, the ‘Chimera Dragon’ feels terrified of the 73rd demon king . ]

Blood poured from Shin Yoosung’s nose .  She couldn’t control the 2nd grade monster alone yet .  I watched Lee Gilyoung and said, “Gilyoung . Think of this as a game . ”

Lee Gilyoung looked up at me .  I stared at the child’s eyes and remembered the words I had once spoken as we walked through the darkness .

It was a conversation that occurred when we wandered together through the darkness of Geumho Station . The moments that passed like nothing became precious memories that returned .

“Even if I die, I will come back . I promise . ”

These stories became the power to kill me .

“…Aaaaaah!” Lee Gilyoung howled and used Taming .

[The remaining attack time is 9 minutes . ]

The chimera dragon was controlled by the two children’s Taming and started to cry out in pain .

The chimera dragon sucked in all the air around it .  The chimera dragon sucked in even my magic and started to open its huge snout towards me .

It was a dark magic power .  A huge sphere of light was created between the ferocious fangs .  It was a weapon that only a dragon, the peak of monsters, could use .

The Breath .  I was hit by the Breath and my body was torn apart again .  It was a shock that caused the mind to break down .

Despite this shock, my body was still alive .  The party members were shocked by my miserable appearance but they shouldn’t stop .

I straightened my ripped lips and said, “Con… tinue . ”

If they didn’t do it now, there wouldn’t be another chance .

[A few constellations have noticed your sacrifice . ]

[Many constellations are amazed by your will . ]

The chimera dragon was exhausted by the use of Breath and its huge body lay on the ground .  Fortunately, the chimera dragon sucked in most of the worst of my rampaging magic power but the attack power of the party members were decreasing .

“Damn, I’m out of magic power!”

[The remaining capture time is 5 minutes . ]

My preparations for dealing with the 73rd demon king were up to here .  So from now on… I should leave it to someone else .

“Kim Dokja . ” Yoo Jonghyuk had risen from the stone wall and was watching me .

I saw that Lee Seolhwa was exhausted by his side . She had probably poured all her magic power into healing him . I saw many emotions cross his eyes as he identified me as the demon king .

“Don’t make such an expression . You can’t change what has already happened . Don’t you already know?”

Yoo Jonghyuk wiped his bloody lips and murmured, “It should’ve been me who died here . ”

Fortunately, Yoo Jonghyuk was Yoo Jonghyuk .  He already accepted that he would have to kill me .

Yoo Jonghyuk rushed towards me with the Heaven Shaking Sword .  Every hit made me feel that my physical strength had been reduced .  He didn’t say anything but his despair was conveyed every time the blade cut me .

[The remaining capture time is 4 minutes . ]

For us, we weren’t even allowed time to feel that despair .

“Let’s end it now Yoo Jonghyuk . Bring ‘that’ out . ”

“I don’t know what you mean . ”

“Don’t play around . I know you didn’t use it on purpose . ”

“…If I use this, you can’t be resurrected . ”

“That’s why you are going to use it . It would be difficult if I came back again as a demon king . ”


“What if the scenario ends up being ruined? You should stop thinking about it . ”

Yoo Jonghyuk glared at me without speaking .

「 Do you have an idea? 」

I just laughed at his question .  Yoo Jonghyuk hesitated before eventually pulling out a sword .

The Heavenly Sword of Gathering Clouds .  Ame no Murakumo no Tsurugi .  It was a sword obtained from Yamata no Orochi in Peace Land .

Yoo Jonghyuk spoke in a somber voice, “I hoped the moment where I had to use this would never come . ”

“Me too . However, now is the time . ”

[The constellation ‘Demon-like Judge of Fire’ feels despair . ]

[The constellation ‘Prisoner of the Golden Headband’ is sighing deeply . ]

[The constellation ‘Queen of the Darkest Spring’ is holding her breath . ]

The power acquired by a story will eventually collapse because of a story .  My attribute of Eight Lives was derived from the power of Yamata no Orochi .  This power was bound to be vulnerable to the weapon of death that killed Yamata no Orochi .  Perhaps I would lose all my remaining lives if I was cut by this sword .

Yoo Jonghyuk opened his mouth .  “…To be honest, there is no certainty in this . The duration of Giant Body Transformation is over and I’m not confident in my current attack power . ”

“Don’t worry about it . ”

I could see Shin Yoosung furiously shaking her head towards me .

[The constellation who doesn’t yet have a name has given his incarnation a ‘stigma’ . ]

There was a dazzling light and my stigma nestled inside Shin Yoosung .

[The stigma ‘Sacrifice’s Will Lv . 1’ has been activated!]

The stigma caused a brilliant glow to emerge from Shin Yoosung’s body .

[The master of the stigma risks his life for others . ]

[The attack power of the party is greatly increased in proportion to the desperation of their lives . ]

The exhausted eyes of my party members started to become energetic again .

Sacrifice’s Will .  It was a stigma that didn’t really suit me .  One thing was for certain . My death was now confirmed .

“Thank you for everything . ”

[The remaining capture time is 3 minutes . ]

The party members were running .

Lee Hyunsung, Jung Heewon, Shin Yoosung, Lee Gilyoung, Yoo Sangah, Gong Pildu, Lee Jihye…

They cried, screamed or were filled with deep anger .  Everyone was coming towards me . My vision gradually diminished and all the characters became the landscape . I saw them and laughed .

「 Incarnation Kim Dokja will be killed by the person he loves most . 」

I had forgotten .  All prophecies couldn’t be interpreted literally .  In this Star Stream, people were stories .

[The constellation ‘Secretive Plotter’ is looking at you . ]

[The constellation ‘Demon-like Judge of Fire’ is looking at you . ]

[The constellation ‘Prisoner of the Golden Headband’ is looking at you . ]

[The constellation ‘Abyssal Black Flame Dragon’ is looking at you . ]

[The constellation ‘Maritime War God’ is looking at you . ]

As the gazes of countless stars in the sky poured towards me, a story was running towards me .


Parents, friends and lovers were all stories .

[The remaining capture time is 2 minutes . ]

This wasn’t the Ways of Survival I knew but—It was a story more wonderful than Ways of Survival .

[A constellation of a small planet is looking at you . ]

[All the constellations on the Korean Peninsula are looking at you . ]

It was my story .  I laughed as Yoo Jonghyuk’s sword pierced my heart .

[Your fate has been realized . ]

My body slowly sank down and Yoo Jonghyuk held onto me .  “Kim Dokja . ”

“It was a really great story . Isn’t that right?”

Yoo Jonghyuk stared down at me silently .  I couldn’t find any words and just watched .  It was as if I had always been meant to do this .

[The effect of the Heavenly Sword of Gathering Clouds has destroyed all remaining extra lives . ]

[You can no longer resurrect . ]

I finally looked up at the sky .  The clusters of nebulae were in the centre of the night sky .  Vedas, Olympus, Papyrus…

I would never forget what they had done .

Then the sky blinked .

[The constellation ‘Prisoner of the Golden Headband’ doesn’t wish for your death . ]

The stars shone brightly as if in response to my will .

[The constellation ‘Abyssal Black Flame Dragon’ doesn’t wish for your death . ]

[The constellation ‘Secretive Plotter’ doesn’t wish for your death . ]

[The constellation ‘Demon-like Judge of Fire’ doesn’t wish for your death . ]

I looked at the sky and laughed . Due to these guys, I hated the constellations but I couldn’t hate the story .

“Let’s meet again, Yoo Jonghyuk . ”

The power of the demon king disappeared and at the same time, strength drained from me .

[The main scenario has ended . ]

[Seoul Dome has been freed . ]

A small black hole appeared in the air behind me .  My body was slowly being sucked into it .  My legs, my torso, my arms…they turned into powder and were slowly being sucked in .

“Kim Dokja! No! Kim Dokja!”

At the last moment, he tightly held me by the neck .  However, it was already too late .

My vision turned black and I was sucked into an empty void .  The eyes of the constellations watching me started to disappear one by one .  I was leaving the area of the channel .

[The constellation ‘Demon-like Judge of Fire’ doesn’t wish for your death!]

In the distant night sky, one star desperately blinked at me .

[The constellation ‘Demon-like Judge of Fire’ doesn’t wish for your death!]

Yes, you can stop now . Uriel .

[The constellation ‘Demon-like Judge of Fire’…]

Thank you .

The stars in the night sky went out one by one and Incarnation Kim Dokja’s story finally ended .

[The constellations of the absolute good system have withdrawn the mark of ‘evil’ from you . ]

[Your incarnation body has completely been destroyed . ]

[You have failed the scenario . ]

[You have been expelled from the scenario . ]

[The Star Stream will announce your modifier . ]

In the faraway darkness, the Star Stream was quietly whispering to me .

[Your modifier is the ‘Demon King of Salvation’ . ]
