“Khan!!”

As Khan turned to grey, Grid hugged him like he didn’t want to miss a single part .

"You must be happy . ”

Khan wanted to say a lot but there was no time . Khan only left a single wish as his testament .

Swaaah .

Finally, Khan’s two hands that wanted to hold Grid completely disappeared before they could wrap around Grid .  Khan smiled brightly rather than showing any sorrow . It was Khan’s last appearance that would forever be kept in Grid’s mind .

“Khannnnn!”

Grid didn’t want to lost Khan’s touch, body temperature, and smell that was disappearing like a mirage . He eagerly stretched out a hand but it was useless . His hands only touched the air that had nothing left .

“Oppa . . . ”

Tears constantly flowed from Ruby’s eyes as she watched the last farewell between Grid and Khan . Faker supported her as her nose turned red from crying .

"Let’s leave Grid alone . ”

 

***

 

The first person who acknowledged him .  The person who shared his sufferings, sorrows, and joy .  Khan was his teacher, disciple, friend, and family member . He was always at the forefront when Grid was thinking about his ‘precious people’ in his head .

"Kkuk . . . ”

The empty smithy .  Now in the place where there was no more Khan, Grid stared at the air with dry eyes before grabbing his chest and collapsing .  How many hours passed since Khan left? He thought he had no more tears left but they once again flowed .

" . . . Terrible old man . ” Grid cried with his head on the floor and finally opened his mouth for the first time . His cracked voice echoed through the empty smithy .  "Didn’t you say you wouldn’t leave until you got all my skills? Then why . . . why did you break your promise? Huh? You bad . . . ”

Bad person .  Grid complained before stopping . He was worried that the gods were listening to him and might misunderstand, dropping Khan into hell .

“ . . . ”

Time flowed in the void .  Grid felt a deep grudge as he looked at the smithy covered with traces of Khan .  He felt bitter towards himself .  Why didn’t he protect Khan? Why couldn’t he arrive a bit sooner?

“We spent 10 long years together . ” Grid felt signs of someone being around and said, "But the time to say goodbye was only one second . ”

How sad and lonely was Khan? Grid shouted ‘father’ and ‘grandfather’ in his heart but failed to show filial piety . He couldn’t even be there properly at the end .

Lauel comforted Grid, who couldn’t raise his head .  "To Khan, that one second would be like an eternity . He wouldn’t have been lonely . He was happy to be able to see you . ”

13 hours and 23 minutes after Khan’s death . Lauel had been doing his job while Grid was mourning .

“I used our information network to identity the members of Immortal . I’m investigating the radius and base of their activities, so please give a killing order . ”

They dared to invade the Overgeared Kingdom and hurt Grid’s family and friends . Putting aside Grid, there was no forgiveness from the position of the Overgeared Kingdom . Lauel and the Overgeared members were ready to rain hell down on the Immortal members . They planned to trample on Immortal so that they would live in regret while suffering forever .

"In addition, Khan's funeral will be a state funeral in consideration for his achievements in life . His contribution to the development of the nation’s economy and military power was huge . And . . . ”

Lauel shut his mouth for a moment while giving the report . He took a deep breath, calmed his trembling heart and opened his mouth again .

"The new legendary blacksmith who emerged . . . you guessed it, but it was Khan . ”

He could be sure because the world message appeared the moment that Khan died . Khan hammered the iron to the end and became a legend only after he died . He might be a legend that existed for only a moment, but his feats would be forever . Lauel would make sure of it .

“The exact cause of death is natural causes, not the poisoning . ”

A legend had a passive that caused resistance to all status conditions and five seconds of immortality .  If Khan was in a normal state, the poison would’ve disappeared the moment he became a legend and his health should’ve remained fixed at the minimum . But that didn’t happen .  Based on the testimonies of Faker, Ruby, and the priests, Khan had reached the end of his life .

“It’s fortunate . Khan could leave without any pain . ”

In addition, he was able to meet with Grid thanks to the legend’s five seconds of immortality .  Lauel hoped to slightly ease Grid’s mind but instead, Grid’s anger soared to the limit .  His expression distorted and he said in a shaky voice, "His life span might’ve been shortened because of the poison . ”

“ . . . ”

“Even if that wasn’t the case, Khan had to endure the pain of the poisoning . ”

Khan was poisoned for several hours in an elderly state .  As a player, Grid couldn’t fathom the pain and fear that Khan would’ve felt . Khan, who lived in sorrow after losing his wife and son . Grid was infinitely sad that he suffered even at the last minute .

“Immortal . . . ”

Grid’s body shook with uncontrollable anger . He didn’t say anything special . He just clenched his fists . He needed more time to control his mind .

“I will make the arrangements . ”

Lauel bowed his head and turned around . He was currently acting on Grid’s behalf and had no time to stay here . He had to move quickly .

'Looking at the state of the king, I think I should prepare to move the army . ’

Lauel predicted that Grid would go on a frenzy . Grid wouldn’t be satisfied with a simple kill order and would slaughter Immortal by moving his entire army .  Of course, this wasn’t a good development . It was the worst .  War consumed soldiers, food, and an astronomical amount of supplies . If they fought a war with the necromancers of Immortal, the Overgeared Kingdom would suffer huge losses .

‘Veradin, you son of a bitch . Causing this incident during the time when there is a truce with the empire . ’

Lauel planned to increase the national power of the Overgeared Kingdom by more than 20% during the armistice with the empire . Instead, it would become a negative . At the end of the armistice period, it would become more difficult to deal with the empire . Lauel’s eyes were dark .  He felt powerless as he headed to the exit .

Behind him, Grid was rising from his spot . The full plate armor on top of Khan’s anvil belatedly caught his attention .  Khan's posthumous work . Grid approached the armour and his eyes widened as he gripped it with trembling hands .

“Khan . . . ”

Grid was able to see at a glance how much care and skills Khan put into this armor . He noticed it was designed solely for himself . In the end .

"I'm sorry . . . I’m sorry Khan . ”

Grid once again cried in sorrow .  He was a sinner .  Why didn’t he give any presents to Khan? If Grid had given him such a wonderful gift, Khan’s fate might’ve changed . Grid realized how indifferent he was to Khan and felt guilty . He vowed to do better with his family in the future .

-Prepare for a news conference .

Grid calmed down and sent a whisper to Lauel .

-Huh? Press conference?

Lauel was stunned since he had been expecting Grid to say that he was going to find Veradin and Agnus right now . Grid explained to him .

-Denounce Immortal, who invaded another kingdom during the National Competition and caused enormous damage .

- . . . Are you planning to move public opinion through the media?

-Yes .

The continent was wide . It was practically impossible for the Overgeared members to search and punish the Immortal members scattered everywhere . Of course, they could kill a few people . However, that was it . The efficiency was too low .

-Thus, I will borrow other hands .  I am going to give a kill command on Immortal to all two billion players .

‘I know that I can’t move the army . ’

Grid was filled with anger and sadness but he analyzed the situation calmly . It was a king’s attitude .  Lauel honestly admired it, but he felt negatively about moving public opinion .

Immortal’s raid and Khan’s death .  It was a big disaster and source of grief for the Overgeared Kingdom, but the death of an NPC was just a small incident to a third party playing the game .  Wouldn’t Grid condemning Immortal just cause ridicule? In particular, Grid had obtained huge rewards from this year’s National Competition . The many people jealous of him were likely to ridicule and criticize him .

-I think there’s nothing to gain if we use the media .  Even if you denounce Immortal, it’s just someone else’s story .  It is rare for players to act .

Lauel replied honestly .

-You’re mistaken .

- . . . ?

-I’m not trying to use the media to ask people to cooperate .  I want to advertise .

-Advertise . . . ?

-Yes .  After justifying why I am going after Immortal at the press conference, I will publicize that I will make an item for the players every time they hunt a member of Immortal .

- . . .

It was a sure way .  The moment Grid’s advertisement spread to the world, two billion people would become Immortal hunters . The people who would look for Immortal would grow like bamboo shoots and Immortal would be exposed to infinite PK without room to breathe .

However, this meant that Grid would be paying a lot . Making items for hundreds, maybe even tens of thousands of hunters would empty his pockets .

- . . . How can you afford it?

Lauel talked about a realistic problem and Grid immediately responded .

-I have a lot of money .

Grid’s assets had been steadily accumulating since selling the Red Phoenix Bow to Jishuka and he expressed his resolve .

-It doesn’t matter if I become broke .  I will make those Immortal dogs quit the game .  This is a command .

Now it wasn’t just items . Grid was learning how to take advantage of his wealth and position .
