Chapter of the week: 2/2
A mountain disappeared and the ground surrounding it was gouged.
The natural and abundant mountain that was there only a few hours ago was nowhere to be seen now.
Floating above that devastated land, Scala seemed to be searching for something.
“That brat! Where did he go?!”
She muttered to herself while being irritated. The moment she used her total destruction skill, she clearly saw Yato holding Lina in his arms and disappearing. That is why she was sure that he didn’t die from her attack and that he was hiding somewhere from her right now.
She had been going around destroying the land as an attempt to make him show up on his own, but he still didn’t show a sign of coming back.
“He shouldn’t have gone too far.”
She already told him what would happen if he was to escape in the middle of the fight. Moreover, the angel that was with him must know the result of leaving Scala alone better than Yato.
“Aah! Seriously! Nothing comes out from thinking about it!”
As Scala approached the limits of her patience, she screamed Yato’s name with a loud voice.
“S-Show up already!! I will turn this entire place into dust if you didn’t come up!!”
“I’m right here.”
Immediately following that scream, she heard his voice from behind. Turning around, the first thing that entered her sight was Yato’s expression brimming with confidence.
Surely, Scala was surprised to see him in front of her all of a sudden. She wasn’t expecting him to answer her loud call. But right away, her expression changed into that of delight.
“Hey Hey, you didn’t have to tell me that you were here, you know. You could’ve just hit me from the back or something.”
“I don’t need to that in order to knock you out.”
Scala was taken aback by seeing the man who was about to give up just recently speaking with that much confidence. She snorted and replied.
“You still didn’t get it even after witnessing my skill? You can’t win against me.”
“You never know. Try me.”
Yato answered her in a provocative manner.
“Why not! Alright, bring it in then!!”
Scala’s hair started standing in the opposite direction as she created an ambiance similar to the one she used just now.
Yato’s reaction to what she had done wasn’t exactly as she expected. He remained taking his daunting pose while grinning.
“Listen here, you think I’d come and face you again without any plan in mind?”
Unable to understand what he was implying, Scala expressed her doubt with a loud voice.
Watching her confused reaction, Yato declared with a serene voice.
“I’m gonna have those skills of yours sealed.—— Tension down.”
Immediately after he uttered those two words, Scala felt a sudden change in her body.
“W-What is this?!”
A faint blue light manifested around her and surrounded her body. She couldn’t hide her bewilderment from having a mysterious light showing up surrounding her all of a sudden, but soon after, she halted the skill that she was preparing to use.
“I can’t get myself to use it. What’s this feeling… I’m suddenly not in the mood for doing anything…”
The tension magic skill decreased Scala’s tension resulting in the weakening of her powers. Her hair went back to normal and she seemed to have lost the mood to fight. Yato ascertained his victory after watching the clear result of his skill.
“It’s my turn now. Let me pay you back for all what you did to me.”
At the same time, in a certain place somewhere in the heavens, a man and a woman were having a conversation.
“It is about time.”
“You are right.”
The women declared and the man agreed. The both of them were sitting in majestic chairs inside a splendid hall similar to a throne room.
“Nevertheless, no one would have predicted this outcome.”
“This must be fate as well.”
The man gazed at the ceiling as he exuded a somewhat lonely and lifeless ambiance. The woman too, was revealing an expression of resolve.
“Scala must be acting out of control by now.”
“She will most likely cause an enormous damage, however, there is no need to worry as it won’t have an influence on the residents of the world.”
When the man uttered with a bitter smile, the woman replied to him with a confident face. In this place, there are no TV or magic tools that reflect the situation of that world. The man and woman don’t have any skill to watch over Scala’s battle neither, but they talked as if they knew everything about her from the start.
A short moment later, a soldier growing wings in his back entered the hall in haste and approached the both of them.
“Divine god!! I have bad news!! He escaped! That prisoner escaped from【infinite prison】!!”
“As I thought…”
The man or the divine god calmly closed his eyes as if he was waiting for that news.
“I know. He escaped, but I think everything will be alright.”
The soldier who saw the divine god rashly closing the topic of the prisoner, stiffness in his place, unable to grasp what he meant.
the【infinite prison】is a jail made for punishing a countless number of prisoners.
Anyone who enters it is fated to never step outside of it for the rest of their life. Surely, those who find themselves there have sinned enough to deserve it. The soldier couldn’t understand why the divine god reacted with such composure after hearing that someone from that prison had escaped.
The soldier remained stiffened in his place, confused. Luckily, the woman followed the divine god’s ambiguous conclusion with a light scolding.
“Dear? He is still a newcomer, should you not explain the situation further to him?”
“Hn? Ah, yeah, you are right. I apologize.”
With an apologetic expression, the divine god who forgot that the soldier was still new, explained the situation to him.
“The prisoner who escaped will be caught soon enough. Just be on standby.”
“Yes! Understood, divine god and goddess!!”
The soldier replied with a voice brimming with spirit and respect. But the woman made a remark about his reply.
“It is not god and goddess. You know very well that we are two in one.”
“Ah! My apologies!”
“You can leave now.”
Realizing his miss, the soldier bowed down in a fluster then left the hall. The man and woman watched him leaving silently.
The divine god is actually not a single person. To be more accurate, a divine god is the combination of two gods.
That is why this man and woman are both referred to as a single divine god.
After the soldier left the hall, the place calmed down again and the woman finally revealed her worry.
“Is it going to be alright, I wonder.”
“It will be fine, it’s about that person.”
Unlike the worried woman, the man didn’t seem to be worried at all. He placed his hands on the armrest of the chair.
“If they are not able to deal with that much, they will not be able to keep up with the future, after all.”
“… yes, you are right.”
Agreeing with the man, the women let out a light sigh and leaned on her chair.
“I wonder how will fate settle the outcome.”
The woman muttered while gazing at the corner of the ceiling. The word ‘fate’ that has been mentioned regularly in their conversation isn’t yet revealed. Nobody could predict how the outcome will turn out, but the time when the both of them will start moving was surely in the far future.
“What’s up, Rouga?”
“I feel like I’ve turned into a mob character recently. What should I do?”
“Where did you learn the word mob, by the way?”
“Answer me first~!”
“Let’s see, Honestly, I don’t know.”
“Yeah. I mean, I’m the protagonist here.”
“Chief, can I hit you once?”
“You can’t do that.”
