You’re thinking exactly as an evil god.
uuum, how can I explain this…
so, as most of you guys read in the post of “novels on hiatus”, I took a break from translating for 2 weeks due to many things irl happening at the same time. fortunately, I’ve taken care of most of these things and now I’m able to spend my free time translating again.
I’m really sorry for disappearing on you for more than 2 weeks, but that’s how things are. it can’t be helped.
so enjoy your first chapter after a while of my entire class ~
Germa and I glared at each other for moments.
I quickly used 【Time-Space teleportation】, teleported behind him and clenched my fist.
My fist wrapped in red flames flew, aimed at Germa’s head.
“You only know a single pattern of attacks.”
Germa had previously read my move.
He created a black mist from his legs and swiftly hide inside it to dodge my fist.
My hit ended up in vain while this time, it was Germa who showed up behind me.
“This is for what you’ve done to me earlier.”
He placed his hands on my back and continued.
All of a sudden, My field of vision turned completely black.
All that was left was a pitch black sky, without a single source of light.
I could feel the wind blowing against my body and the sounds around.
Apparently, the skill he used only snatches away vision.
Despite getting confused by my loss of vision I continued to analyze the situation then used【Presence sensation】to spot his position.
What actually surprised me was the place where he was.
Realizing that he was standing before me, I put up my guard, however, I was a step late.
Right when I raised my guard, my vision came back and the first thing I saw was Germa placing his hand on me after preparing his next move.
“See you. YamiOchi.”
By the time he said that, black mist started emitting from his hands again.
It then started infiltering my body, making me step back from that eery feeling.
When I checked my body looking for damage, I didn’t find anything unusual.
(What did he do…?)
I couldn’t believe that his skill didn’t affect me and the voice I hear inside my head next confirmed my doubt.
“I abhor him.” “Why is it me?” “I don’t want this.” “I didn’t do anything to deserve this.” “It’s all their faults.” “I won’t forgive him.” “I will kill him.” “I will destroy everything.” “I don’t want to be played around anymore.” “I’m fed up with this.” “I want to be free.” “I can’t bear being bound like this.” “I don’t want to be deceived.” “They’re my enemies.” “I need to kill my enemies.” “I will kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.” “kill them.”………
Voices of many people of different genre and age reverberated in my mind.
It wasn’t clear if they were addressing me or not, but every single voice was brimming with hatred and directly stabbed my heart.
I was about to lose my sense. It felt almost as if my mind was getting consumed by something.
(What is… this……)
I held my head from the countless voices which didn’t show a sign of halting.
I could see Germa pleasantly watching my suffering expression.
“Everyone who gets controlled by that black mist will lose their consciousness and go berserk. The only one who can control them at that time is me and there’s no possible way to cancel the effect. Once it is cast, it becomes impossible to resist it. Well then, hurry up and get controlled by hatred as well.”
As if he ascertained his victory, Germa triumphantly explained the effect of his skill.
Going berserk, huh. I didn’t expect it to be this effective.
I regretted my mistake while my mind kept getting consumed by voices.
Because of my【Mental resistance】, I was able to preserve my consciousness. Though, it didn’t help in canceling the skill effect.
This is bad. At this rate, I will be done.
I couldn’t think clearly due to the voices inside my head.
“Kill them.” “I will be saved when I kill them.” “I need to kill them.” “I will be beyond rescue if I didn’t.” Don’t trust anyone.” “resent.” “Hate.” “Curse.” “Nobody thinks of you in a nice way.”
Every voice gradually changed from a mere monologue to something addressed to me.
Every single word stabbed my heart and forced me to lose my sense.
This is no good. What should I do…
Doing my best to think while resisting the mental attack, Germa started provocating me with a entertained expression.
“I’m interested to see how long you will last. You can just give up and become under my control you know. If you do that, I will make use of you for the remains of your life instead of killing you now.”
The last words he said as he laughed hit something inside me and made me react.
“What, did you just say now…”
“Didn’t you hear me? I told you to give it up already and get controlled by me. I shall use you as my personal doll for the rest of your life.”
Germa repeated himself with an elated smile.
He wants me to give up?
He wants me to become his doll?
Work for him for the rest of my life?
Hearing him a second time, I lost my reason to wrath.
(Lose to this guy? Stop fooling around! There’s no way I’d lose to this fake god!)
I stood up on both of my legs.
I don’t want to lose to this guy. I won’t let these voices rule me. I will continue to resist them until the end and I will knock him out then. For sure!!
When I screamed that way in my mind, I heard a different voice responding to me.
“The skill 【Mental resistance】 was upgraded to 【Mental resistance(Max)】.”
Immediately after hearing that voice, my consciousness that was fading away had suddenly returned.
I could still hear those voices inside my head, but that was all. They weren’t affecting me anymore.
My skill has leveled up.
As expected from 【Super growth】. It works only in perfect timings.
A bitter smile reached my face as I kept holding my head.
My thoughts became clear once again. I can manage to do something now.
I started by erasing the voices inside my head.
The sounds reverberating inside my head disappeared following my word.
I simply used 【Erasure Magic】to do that. I wonder why I didn’t think about doing that from the start.
I slowly raised my head and looked at the sky.
Who thought that silence could be this agreeable.
Noticing the sudden change of my expression, Germa dropped his jaw from the shock.
“H-How did you do it?”
“It’s all thanks to my perfect timed skills.”
Despite giving him an honest answer, Germa kept looking at me, dumbfounded.
Well, it doesn’t matter if he believed me or not.
“Well then, It’s my turn now. Let me pay you back twice the price.”
Bringing him back to reality with my shout, Germa wore his sinister grin again and said.
“It can’t be helped. I honestly didn’t saw that coming, however, there are still many moves to try. The next time, I will surely kill you.”
“Sorry but, there will be no next time.”
I teleported right after finishing my words.
Judging that I will be teleporting behind him, Germa swiftly turned around.
“Like I told you, you only have a single pattern!”
Saying the same thing again, he looked around, but couldn’t find me.
Surprised by that fact, he quickly surveyed his surroundings.
This guy is dumb. There’s no way I’d make the same move three times in a row.
All of a sudden, a strong shock ran through his chin.
It was because of my punch which sent him flying in the air.
Having his brain tremored, Germa fell into a confused state.
While he was still floating from my punch, I immediately prepared for the next move.
“Burn from the flames of light— Strike Soul!”
The moment I chanted the spell, a yellow magic circle appeared, surrounding Germa and gradually increased its light.
“Guu!!… I I’m not done yet!”
Standing back on both his legs again, Germa started releasing black mist from all over his body.
The mist extended around as if it was protecting him. Apparently, he realized that he can’t dodge my next attack, so he prepared for an instant counter-attack.
Although, it was already too late for that.
The magic circle shined to its limits and finally released its lasers at Germa who continued to release his black mist.
Once the mist touched the lasers, it easily disappeared, clearing the way to Germa.
The mist completely vanished in a second and the lasers reached Germa and Burned him up, not giving him the chance to do anything but scream.
The place that got exposed to the lasers from all the sides, began shining and releasing a bright light which cleared up the gloomy sky.
When everything had finally settled down, all that was left in that place was the worn-out figure of Germa.
His clothes turned pitch black and he received many burns around his body.
Apparently losing his consciousness, he remained crumbling on the ground.
I walked to him and noticed that he was still conscious.
“How, could… a god, like… me… lose…”
He uttered with a cracked voice.
“You’re a god, aren’t you? Then why did you destroy your own world?”
“I- I was only… making… my ideal… world… a world consumed by… darkness…”
A world consumed by darkness? That just makes you sound like an evil god instead of a decent one.
“I understand your motive. But you shouldn’t have tried doing that here. Now leave that body right now. That way, you won’t be able to do anything.”
When I told him to leave Akuya’s body, he made a stiff grin as he remained lying down.
“Indeed… I won’t be able… to do anything… but, I am not intending… to leave this body… and… there’s nothing… for you to do… about it…”
Looks like he was still holding a little hope. This guy doesn’t know when to give up. I actually respect his strong persistence.
Also, he was right. I didn’t have any means to drag him out from Akuya’s body.
Not until now.
I released a certain magic at Germa.
A moment later, a light reached us from the sky and started dazzlingly wrapping him up.
“W-What is… guu!”
Germa started suffering once the light reached him.
It was a type of 【light magic】, a magic that specials at purification. Anyone who basks under it will have anything of evil in his heart purified.
Germa makes use of hatred to change it into his own strength and heal his body.
Then I only need to stop that process.
With this light, not only the body, but even the hatred surrounding him outside gets cleaned up. And apparently, Germa couldn’t stand against.
“Well then, you’d better leave that body you know.”
Looking down at him suffering, I asked him to leave again.
At this rate, he may even die if he kept resisting.
He was probably thinking about the same thing since I could see the anguish and impassion from his face.
Finally, deciding to give up, he left the body and floated away in the form of black mist.
He tried to escape with all his might, but of course, there was no way I’d let him get away.
“Alright, stop there.”
Germa who was about to run away, received my neck blow and fainted.
It seemed that the neck blow had a considerable effect since I heard his groan before he lost his sense.
The sky turned back to its bright and cheerful condition and the dark clouds disappeared leaving the way for the sun to reach my eyes.
Now that I’m done with Germa, next will be this guy.
I reached my hand to the gloomy guy and covered him with a faint light that made his wounds heal up.
If I didn’t do that, he would have probably died. I actually don’t care about what could have happened to him, but I couldn’t break my promise with Kamaishi.
When all of his wounds healed, I let out a deep sigh realizing that everything was done.
“Guess I will go see Lina.”
I carried both of them in my arms and while putting up with tiredness I was feeling, I teleported to Lina’s place.
The attack of the colonel.
“Hey, do you see someone standing there?”
“There! The place that’s unusually shining.”
“Hmm, Ahh, my eyes!! My eyes!!”
“Looks like the colonel is attacking.”
