TCF 767

# The Birth of a Hero? (1)

The eyes of the knight who had been protecting the entrance of the Puzzle City City Hall were sparkling.

The radiant s.h.i.+eld slowly became dimmer as it disappeared from the sky. In its place was the blue sky looking extremely clear.

“Woooooooooooooooo–!”

“We’re alive!”

The cheering soldiers… Their shouts made it feel real.

This long battle was finally over.

They never expected to see such a clear sky afterward.

A gentle smile appeared on the knight’s face.

Although it was a day in winter and not much time was left in this year… The sun in the sky felt oddly warm and the wind felt refres.h.i.+ng instead of cold.

“It’s over.”

His mumbling made the senior knight standing next to him laugh out loud and nod his head.

“Looks like it. Finally… finally-”

The senior knight could not say anything else and raised his head to look at the person standing in the sky.

Cale Henituse. He was standing firm.

“The s.h.i.+eld truly does not break.”

“Definitely.”

The knight nodded his head vigorously at his senior’s comment to show his agreement.

“I knew that the Commander-nim would persist to the end.”

Although this G.o.d was sealed, they were told that an attack with the power of a G.o.d would soon envelope Puzzle City.

‘It gave me chills.’

Loud explosions that sounded as if his ears would explode rang endlessly and gusts of wind from the impact rushed against them.

They could not see the different powers mixed together because of the large s.h.i.+eld surrounding Puzzle City and Cale’s half-transparent silver s.h.i.+eld, but they knew that there was quite the clash in there.

‘Yes. But the s.h.i.+eld still persisted.’

The thing that remained in the end, the thing that persisted through everything, was the s.h.i.+eld.

It was the Commander of the Roan Kingdom.

The knight smiled and he did not share his emotions.

“The s.h.i.+eld did not even budge just as I expected!”

The knight saw the senior knight’s face stiffen at that moment.

He got chills on the back of his neck.

“Really?”

He heard a low voice.

The knight urgently turned his head and froze in spot after seeing the two people in front of the group.

“The s.h.i.+eld did not even budge you say……”

This person was from the n.o.ble household that was said to have the most influence in the Roan Kingdom right now.

The Duke’s House of Henituse.

The master of the household, Deruth Henituse, was smiling while being supported by his second son, Basen Henituse. Basen had rushed over to Puzzle City after hearing that the Duke had fainted.

Duke Deruth’s eyes were not smiling.

The knight subconsciously gulped.

He recalled the information about how Duke Deruth had fainted from shock after seeing former Commander Cale Henituse stab himself in the chest with a dagger.

“Okay.”

The Duke nodded his head and asked in a low voice.

“That blood-covered look, that messy look seems perfect without any issues to you?”

Duke Deruth was known as someone who had a lot of money, cared a lot for his family and his territory, and for having a good personality. He was just known as a typical n.o.ble when he was a Count.

However, the Henituse territory defeating the Indomitable Alliance and his territory being known as the hometown of Cale, Choi Han, and other distinguished individuals changed the way people looked at him.

However, the majority opinion still remained that Duke Deruth was a gentle person.

‘…H, his gaze-’

The knight subconsciously lowered his head.

Deruth’s gaze was quite vicious unlike the smile on his face.

No, it was cold.

Unlike his body which looked tired and made it seem as if his condition was terrible, his eyes were extremely frigid.

“I, I’m sorry, sir.”

The knight subconsciously apologized.

“For what? It’s understandable that you would think that way. There is no need to apology.”

Duke Deruth walked past the knight and patted him on the shoulder.

“I just hope that you remember that I am Cale’s father. What kind of parent would be able to brush aside their child looking like this?”

The knight’s tense shoulders relaxed after hearing Deruth’s gentle voice.

Pat, pat. Deruth patted the knight’s shoulder and walked past him. He walked for a while before stopping for a moment and looking around.

“…Basen.”

“Yes, father.”

Basen’s expression looked almost identical to Deruth’s.

“My son.”

“Yes, father.”

“…It looks like there are some people who can’t see the injured because they managed to survive.”

Vice Captain Hilsman and the others from the House of Henituse who were with Deruth and Basen did not have any emotions visible on their faces.

“Basen.”

“Yes, father?”

“What kind of House is the House of Henituse?”

Basen responded without any hesitation.

“There is no reason to be recorded in history. Live for peace and happiness instead.”

“Yes. That is the House of Henituse.”

Deruth watched people coming out from different parts of Puzzle City cheering, people moving quickly to deliver the message to other places, and people hugging each other in relief. Finally, he looked toward the person that most of the people were looking at. He looked up at his son Cale and continued speaking.

“It looks like we may have the first person in the House of Henituse to have their name recorded in history. Then we should at least keep the second part of our creed.”

There is no reason to be recorded in history. Live for peace and happiness.

Duke Deruth was thinking that if the former was difficult to do, he should at least do the latter.

“Vice Captain.”

“Yes, Duke-nim.”

Hilsman took a step forward.

“His Majesty went to the shelter?”

“Yes sir. His Majesty did not wish to evacuate but I heard that they barely managed to convince him in the end.”

“Inform his Majesty that I wish for an audience.”

Hilsman gulped.

Duke Deruth was a very good person and might even seem a bit too laissez-faire, but he was someone who found rules and principles to be important.

But such a person was releasing such a vicious aura right now.

‘I knew young master Cale-nim’s personality came from Duke Deruth-nim.’

He had wondered at times whether Cale was more like Violan despite her not being his biological mother, but… He truly was like the Duke.

“Basen.”

“Yes, father?”

“Pack our bags.”

‘Hmm?’

Hilsman and the nearby knights flinched and looked at Deruth.

“There shouldn’t be a need for us to pay attention to useless things like the state of the continent or whatnot. I’m going to go see your brother’s face.”

Basen responded without any hesitation.

“Yes, father.”

He then immediately started moving to inform d.u.c.h.ess Violan about this.

Deruth watched him leave before slowly moving again.

He was headed to see his son’s face.

His eyes observed Cale moving into the temple with the broken wall.

Cale, who had no idea about this, rubbed the back of his head after thinking that it suddenly got cold.

“Why do I suddenly have the chills?”

‘There should be nothing left to do here?’

“Human, am I sending them all up to our house?”

Cale nodded his head at Raon’s question once he entered the temple.

“Yes. None of them are in serious danger?”

“That’s right! I think they are all exhausted from mana overuse. All of them have stable mana fluctuations!”

They heard a weak voice at that moment.

“Yes. There is no serious danger.”

Mila was barely speaking while hugging Dodori in her arms.

She was also barely floating in the air without falling thanks to Raon’s flight magic.

At least she was still conscious.

The others were either fainted or asleep.

Cale looked at Dodori in Mila’s arms and Mila’s pale face and opened his mouth.

He had observed her as well. She did not have any injuries and her breathing was stable.

However…

“This is bad.”

It was bad for him.

Cale could not stop frowning.

Mila had a faint smile on her face. Cale avoided her smile and nonchalantly commented.

“Raon. Move our esteemed Dragons and Miss Rosalyn to the Black Castle immediately.”

They were likely to run into some c.u.mbersome situations or unnecessary gazes if they were taken to City Hall.

‘It would be different if his highness was here, but I can’t control all situations when he’s not available.’

Cale peeked toward Alberu who was still lying down with his eyes closed and then looked at Raon.

“Alright! I’ll be right back!”

Raon urgently took the Dragons and Rosalyn to the Black Castle. Cale walked over to Alberu and Mary.

The two of them looked as if they were sleeping.

He needed to take them to Tasha and the Dark Elves instead of the Black Castle.

He needed to be especially careful with Alberu so that n.o.body saw him.

“Choi Han. Let’s each carry o-”

“Mm.”

Someone was struggling to open his eyes at that moment.

“…Your highness?”

Cale urgently crouched down by Alberu’s side and looked at him. That was why he had not seen Choi Han’s gaze of disbelief at him saying that they should each carry one person.

“Haaaaa.”

Alberu let out a deep sigh and finally opened his eyes.

He scowled and blinked a few more times before saying something.

“Move your face.”

“It sounds like your tongue is fine, your highness.”

Cale chuckled and took a step back from Alberu. Choi Han could see the corners of Cale’s lips slowly twitching up.

“Choi Han. Help me up.”

Alberu stood up with Choi Han’s support. Cale was checking Mary’s condition as he nonchalantly asked.

“Are you okay, your highness?”

“I feel like I’m going to die.”

One corner of Cale’s lips twisted up and he subconsciously commented.

“So why did you overdo it like that?”

– It’s all karma.

As Cale frowned as the Super Rock mumbled that again…

“Time for you to faint.”

He heard Alberu’s voice.

“Excuse me?”

“I confirmed that Mary fell asleep earlier. She looked like she was going to faint so I told her to rest.”

“Wait, more importantly, you want me to faint? But I’m fine?”

Cale was feeling better than ever before.

“You are the one who should get some rest, your highness. I’ll take care of the rest.”

Smile.

Alberu smiled at that moment.

It was a radiant smile.

Cale started to get an ominous feeling. It was then that he realized that he could not see Clopeh.

He paid no attention to that b.a.s.t.a.r.d that he didn’t realize Clopeh was gone.

– Cale.

The Super Rock whispered to him.

– The temple door is opened. Clopeh opened it.

Now that the temple was not the sealed G.o.d’s territory, it was easy to open the temple door as there were no illusions or anything protecting it.

Cale could hear someone’s voice in the distance.

“My close friend, are you in there?!”

Commander Toonka. He could hear that stupid fool’s loud voice.

The voice was slowly getting closer.

“Young master Cale!”

“Young master-nim!”

He then heard Queen Litana, Saint Jack, priestess Cage, Sword master Hannah and others as well.

They had all waited near the temple door instead of going down to the ground.

Alberu spoke in an elegant voice at that moment.

“Okay, time to faint. Dongsaeng.”

“…But I’m fine?”

“We don’t have time.”

Alberu slightly raised his hand.

“Choi Han.”

Cale finally realized that Choi Han had moved behind him. Cale had let down his guard for a moment because this was normal behavior for Choi Han.

Choi Han raised his foot.

Tap.

Cale knelt down on one knee after feeling a push behind his knee.

It was such perfect timing that Cale could see Toonka watching him crumble to the ground.

“C, Cale Henituuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse—-!”

Toonka felt as if he could not breathe as he watched Cale weakly fall down.

He had not been able to see Cale clearly during the battle because of the distance.

He was only able to see Cale now after the battle, and Cale looked even more gruesome than he had expected.

He knew that Cale always looked terrible and almost inhumane; he knew that Cale always had messy hair and was covered in blood, but…

Seeing him up close, it was easy to see that he was extremely pale, and the red and black blood mixed together above his chest made the grotesque scar even more visible.

His clothes were a mess and his red hair was covered in blood and dust.

Toonka saw such a person’s eyes open wide while looking at him.

‘It must be because he is happy to see me.’

However, Cale was falling to the ground at the same time.

His face looked as if he couldn’t believe that he was falling.

He was falling forward too quickly.

“Y, you stupid b.a.s.t.a.r.d–!!”

Toonka was both sad and angry.

Cale had stood firmly in the air just moment ago, but was falling like this once n.o.body was looking.

‘Yes, even Dragons were fainting so how could this punk not?!’

It was stupid for anybody to think that Cale could make it through fine.

“Y, young master Cale!”

Queen Litana subconsciously called out Cale’s name almost in a shout.

However, Cale was unable to raise his body himself and was only able to avoid hitting the floor thanks to Choi Han.

“Oh, dear lord!”

Saint Jack ran forward from the back without knowing what to do.

Hannah had already rushed forward to check Mary’s condition before shouting toward Choi Han.

“Hey! We need to quickly move them!”

Choi Han silently carried Cale on his back. He moved quite efficiently.

“H, how is he?”

Litana, who had come next to them now, felt her fingertips shaking as Choi Han did not respond to her and just carried Cale while biting down on his lips.

Choi Han was usually respectful and a very good person. The situation was so urgent that such a person could not even respond.

This must mean that Cale was in dire condition.

“To me, please bring me to me now-”

Saint Jack caught his breath as he approached Choi Han.

Alberu spoke in a low voice at that moment.

“His plate is in danger so it would be bad to try to heal him here.”

“Excuse me? But I should still-”

Cage, the last person in the pack, moved next to Choi Han before putting a hand on Jack’s shoulder.

“His highness is right.”

“R, really?”

Jack saw Cage wink at him. He nodded his head in confusion.

“Let’s hurry!”

Cage urgently shouted.

“There are some mages outside the temple so it should not be hard for us to get down!”

These mages were here to protect or move Litana, Toonka, Jack and the others in case any unexpected situations arose. They were all Alberu’s subordinates.

“Yes. Let’s go!”

Toonka looked at Cale, who was on Choi Han’s back and could not even lift his head, and shouted with desperation. He then approached Alberu.

“Will you be okay if I support you?”

“No.”

Someone interjected at that moment.

It was Clopeh, who had gone through the temple once the sealed G.o.d’s schemes had disappeared, and opened the door.

“I can support him.”

Clopeh supported Alberu and helped him stand without any hesitation.

“Let’s hurry! It’s urgent!”

Cage shouted again and Toonka ran forward as Cage pointed at him to lead the way. Litana was with him as well.

Choi Han was behind them with Cale on his back while Cale sighed with his eyes closed.

‘What the h.e.l.l is he plotting?’

Cale was thinking about what Alberu was plotting. He was also thinking about what Choi Han, this guy who had his mouth shut because he couldn’t act at all, was thinking.

Alberu had no idea about this as he looked at Clopeh. Clopeh quietly whispered after sensing his gaze.

“For the legend.”

‘Crazy b.a.s.t.a.r.d.’

Alberu hid his thoughts and said something else.

“How about you carry me too.”

Hannah had carried Mary on her back already.

Clopeh said that his arms and legs were strong enough for that and carried Alberu.

“It seems as if you are trying to trick everybody, your highness.”

Alberu smiled at Clopeh’s nonchalant comment.

The danger was over.

However, they needed to filter through people to prevent another danger.

He needed to find out if there were b.a.s.t.a.r.ds who would try to take their positions or scheme things behind their backs while the heroes of this incident were in critical condition.

He needed to observe the allied nations who were cooperating with them as well.

‘Most importantly, I need to figure out what the h.e.l.l the king is thinking.’

He needed to decipher Zed Crossman’s inner thoughts.

‘Furthermore, I need to control what people are thinking.’

Alberu remembered what one of his subordinates had said about Cale. This faith that Cale would be able to take care of everything… The things that were said while looking at someone who looked as if he could faint at any moment…

‘…I can’t let my dongsaeng carry such baggage.’

These people were more like family than his actual family. These friends were more than family.

“The Guardian Knight truly is different.”

“Hoohoo.”

Of course, Clopeh was not in that list.

* * *

A group of people were descending toward the Puzzle City Plaza from the temple using flight magic.

The plaza was currently filled with the chief executives of the different forces as well as people who had come to watch.

The King of the Roan Kingdom, who should be controlling this, was just off in the distance watching.

Boom.

Once the group of people landed at the center of the plaza…

“Commander-nim.”

One of the Whipper Kingdom’s warriors approached Toonka, who was in the front of the group. His face was full of happiness and joy. It was the same for the others around them.

As they all tried to approach the heroes and welcome their return…

As the spectators were about to cheer…

“Commander-nim, everything is finally o-!”

“Shut up!”

Toonka’s shout made everybody silent.

Toonka pushed aside his approaching subordinate and charged forward like a carriage.

“M, my liege?”

It was obvious that Toonka was enraged. He looked at the subordinate who had confusedly called out to him and shouted.

“Can’t you see that we have a patient in critical condition? Huh?”

“Excuse me?”

“Are you snickering? Huh? You can laugh in this situation?”

The face of the subordinate, who was about to smile, stiffened.

He immediately realized that Toonka could snap at any moment and immediately changed his demeanor. His eyes quickly moved past Toonka.

‘Mm.

He could see multiple people in serious conditions.

They seemed more like patients than heroes. He walked in front of Toonka and shouted.

“Move! Don’t block the way!”

Cage’s priestess robe fluttered as she shouted desperately at that moment.

“Please make way! We need to quickly move them and start healing them with the Saint-nim!”

Toonka and Litana pushed people to the side as Cage shouted desperately.

“My close friend’s life is in danger!”

Toonka was feeling such a sense of urgency and full of rage and sorrow that he shouted.

“See what happens if you get in our way! Move aside unless you want to die!”

Crown prince Alberu, who was on Clopeh’s back pretending to be unconscious, quietly mumbled to himself.

“…Wow.”

“Hoohoo.”

Clopeh laughed quietly.

Cale, who was on Choi Han’s back as he ran behind Toonka, clenched his eyes even tighter.

“M, my son!”

His father. He heard Deruth Henituse’s voice through the crowd.

He had a feeling that this was going to be bad.

His gut was telling him it would be bad.

# It’s Karma (5)

Babaaaaaaaaaaaang—

However, the one to face that red explosion first could not help but be afraid.

‘It’s going to break soon.’

Mila had been at the vanguard against the red light since earlier.

She could not see her mana barrier because it was surrounded by multiple layers of other powers.

However, her mana barrier was breaking so easily as if it wasn’t even there.

“Ugh!”

“Mama!”.

Mila’s body subconsciously curled forward.

Both of her hands were shaking.

The sudden impact from her mana barrier breaking had hit her as she was connected to it.

She still did what she could to persevere.

‘I need to hold on so that it is easier for the others.’

For something to give such a burden to a Dragon… It was an extremely formidable explosive force.

There was only one word she could think of to explain this explosive force.

‘…Despair. It is strong enough to make you feel hopeless.’

She subconsciously turned to look at Dodori.

Her child. Her child was casting a mana barrier as well.

“Ugh.”

Blood dripped out of Mila’s mouth.

‘No.’

It was this hard for her so she knew that Dodori would receive an even greater impact. He was still a young Dragon.

However, Mila couldn’t say anything because of the impact that was shaking her insides. Rasheel, the Dragon to face the explosion after her, shouted at that moment.

“Hey! Little kid, you pull back your barrier and go to your mom!”

Rasheel and Mila made eye contact.

A decision had been made in the short moment of the explosion. The two Dragons had come to the same decision.

“Uhh, uhh-”

“…Dodori……”

“Mama!”

In the end, Dodori did as Rasheel said and withdrew his mana before running toward his mom who was calling him.

Craaaack-

Mila’s mana barrier completely broke at that moment.

“f.u.c.k!”.

Rasheel swore once before clenching his mouth shut.

‘d.a.m.n it. I should have just kept sleeping! Why did I come here?!’

The buzz cut Dragon Rasheel was extremely annoyed.

Drip. Blood that had shot up from inside dripped out of his mouth but he kept his mouth shut and pretended that the blood was not there.

It could not be helped.

No matter how selfish he was, he had seen how the humans had fought.

How could he, a great Dragon, act without cla.s.s when these ants that were weaker than him were flailing around like this?

His pride would not accept that.

“f.u.c.k—!”

Craaaack—!

However, his mana barrier soon broke as well.

It had lasted a bit longer than Mila’s. He had been able to reserve a bit more strength than Mila who had to fight against it in the vanguard.

Both of Rasheel’s hands were shaking.

“Keke.”

However, the corners of his lips were curling up.

‘It shrank!’

The explosive force had shrunk.

The power of the G.o.d had gotten a bit weaker.

“Good job.”

The two Dragons heard Eruhaben’s voice.

Eruhaben’s mana barrier was the last Dragon barrier left now that Dodori and Raon had withdrew.

“I guess we are the only ones left.”

Eruhaben looked up at the individual who was floating even higher than where he was floating in the sky. Former Dragon Lord Sheritt was there.

A smile appeared on Lord Sheritt’s freckled face.

Eruhaben smiled back as he spoke.

“Sometimes, the greatest defense is offense.”

She nodded her head.

“Try it. I will block it as much as I can.”

Eruhaben released his mana barrier. The tightly clasped gold barrier instantly turned into small pebbles of dust. He turned his head to look at Alberu, Mary, and Cale.

Eruhaben’s hands moved after seeing Cale nod his head as if to tell him to do whatever he wanted.

“Okay then.”

The gold dust charged toward the red explosion.

When it came to methods to decrease an explosive force…

Blocking it and pus.h.i.+ng back as long as possible was a way, but…

‘We can also make it explode before it reaches our allies.’

One pebble of gold dust exploded.

Bang-

That was the beginning.

Baaang baaaaang, baaaaang! Baaaaang! Baaaaang—

More pebbles of gold dust slammed against the red explosion and caused a chain of explosions.

“Ugh.”

It was not easy.

The red explosion swallowed it all, as if the explosions of these gold dusts were nothing.

This power truly made things feel hopeless.

However, Eruhaben knew something.

‘Despair’ and ‘something that makes it feel hopeless’ were very different things.

Bang, baaa, baaaaang!

Because of Cale’s silver s.h.i.+eld, the people in the distance… They could not see what was going on in there.

All they could tell was that there were numerous colors mixed together and that the endless explosions meant that something was going on.

“…Mary!”

Choi Han supported Mary who was stumbling.

“What is going on-?!”

n.o.body responded to his question. Alberu and Mary were both sweating as they connected their powers together.

‘…It was something like this.’

Alberu bit down on his lips as he channeled his dead mana into Mary’s black threads.

Eruhaben’s power and the red explosion were smas.h.i.+ng against each other.

Honestly speaking, Eruhaben’s power was too weak to call it smas.h.i.+ng against each other.

However, the explosive force was shrinking.

The problem was that the ones who were going up against this explosion right now were Mary and Alberu.

The two of their dead mana force was outside the Dragons’ mana barriers.

Alberu’s dead mana was seeped into this dense net of black threads.

The walls that he thought were thick were slowly cracking.

They probably could not last very long.

However, there was a reason they kept pus.h.i.+ng forward to persist through it.

‘It’s different.’

Maybe it was because this power was trying to cause despair through death, but… Dead mana was able to persist against this explosion to a degree. Although the Dragons’ mana barriers had broken almost instantly, their barrier was lasting better than Alberu had expected.

Of course, it might be because Eruhaben used his power to crash into it first, but…

‘It was something like this.’

Alberu poured his dead mana into it nonstop.

‘They had gone up against powers like this.’

He was experiencing firsthand the powers that his allies, that Cale, had gone up against.

‘…It wasn’t something I should have let them convince me to let them do because they said it was worth trying.’

That was why Alberu thought that he needed to last as long as possible to lessen the burden on the others.

“Ugh.”

“Your highness!”

Choi Han sat Mary down and urgently moved to support Alberu.

The two of them were still not withdrawing their powers and blood started dripping out of their mouths.

Choi Han had seen the Dragons bleeding.

This power was strong enough to damage Dragons.

‘They might even receive an even greater blow!’

Of course Alberu and Mary would receive more damage.

Choi Han heard Raon’s voice at that moment.

“She says that’s enough!”

Raon flew over and landed in the temple with Rosalyn as he spoke.

“Mom says that she’ll take care of it!”

Rosalyn nodded her head. However, Alberu pretended not to hear him. Mary then spoke in a low voice.

“We cannot overdo it or get hurt. None of us are allowed to do that from here on.”

Mary’s gaze turned toward Cale..

Alberu nodded his head and withdrew his power at that moment. Mary did the same.

Baaaaaang—!

It was then that the two of them as well as the others realized something.

The ancient Dragon who had lived the longest had not given it his best yet.

There was a reason Eruhaben had looked toward Lord Sheritt first before he made his move.

A half-transparent silver s.h.i.+eld and two wings.

Most of the colors mixed together inside it were gone and the few remaining colors were starting to show their colors and become visible.

The red explosion. The strong gold pebbles of light going up against it.

Baaaaaaaaaaang—- baaaaaaaaaang—-!

They heard extremely loud explosions one after another.

Baaaaang! Baaaaaang—!

It felt as if the air was shaking from the rumbling of the explosions. They were strong enough to cause gusts of wind.

“Ho.”

The completely pale Cale subconsciously let out a gasp.

‘…Is this the power of the ancient Dragon?’

Eruhaben was attacking the red explosion without any breaks.

Cale was feeling the explosive force of the red explosion slowly decreasing.

He could also feel that the red power that was trying to get past these obstacles and get out no matter what it took was slowing down.

It was because of Eruhaben’s explosions and the existence that was blocking the impact of all of these explosions.

Crack!

It broke.

Crackle, crackle.

Another one broke followed by another.

Craaaack!

A countless number of white s.h.i.+elds broke and broke again.

They stopped the aftershock of the impacts.

Thanks to that, Cale was not feeling any impact or debris from the explosions.

Furthermore, Lord Sheritt still had a lot of white s.h.i.+elds left.

Eruhaben also had a lot of gold dust left.

Baaaaaang—!

They continued to hear explosions but the people in the shelter opened the window a bit more.

“…Hasn’t it been quite a while?”

The silver wings and the s.h.i.+eld were still visible outside the large barrier surrounding Puzzle City.

It looked fine.

“Umm, don’t you think that the explosions are a bit less now?”

The people listening agreed with the knight who asked.

“The explosions… Definitely feel less.”

The mage in charge of communication in the shelter commented.

“They must be doing well to stop it.”

They finally managed to see the individuals who were either bleeding or barely able to hold themselves up outside the large s.h.i.+eld.

“Haaaa, really.”

One of the knights was unable to vocalize what he was thinking and could only shake his head and sigh.

“Okay, please close the window for now. Just to be on the safe side.”

“Yes sir.”

The knight who had opened the window a bit more tried to close it again at the mage’s comment.

Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaang—–!

He would have, if it wasn’t for the loud explosion.

The mage pushed the knight aside and raised his head to look past the s.h.i.+eld.

“T, that is?!”

The red explosion suddenly fluctuated like an aurora before it increased in size.

Lord Sheritt looked down and mumbled to herself.

“A power with a purpose. A G.o.d’s power is truly different.”

Her voice sounded rational.

“At least it looks like it gave up aiming for Puzzle City.”

And as she mentioned…

Baaaaaaaaaang—!

The red explosion exploded.

It was as if it wanted to swallow up everything that had stopped it.

Crack, crack, crack!

The white s.h.i.+elds broke quickly and disappeared.

Cale a.n.a.lyzed the speed of the red explosion pus.h.i.+ng forward and the rate that the s.h.i.+elds were breaking as he thought to himself.

‘Mm. About a third of it is left.’

In that case…

‘This is for me to stop.’

He took a deep breath.

The ancient powers Embraced in the White Star’s white half-mask followed Cale’s will to create an even thicker and larger barrier.

The silver s.h.i.+eld sparkled even more.

“Hmm?”

However, Cale flinched.

“I still have strength left!”

“I’m going to do it too!”

“Not you!”

Rasheel shouted in anger and created another s.h.i.+eld inside the silver s.h.i.+eld.

Dodori also cast a s.h.i.+eld with teary eyes. They blocked the explosion.

‘Do these Dragons never get tired?’

Rasheel had some kind of medicine bottle in his mouth.

As Cale looked at him in disbelief and concern…

Baaaaaang–!

The unfathomable explosion had already happened.

Cale shouted toward the two Dragons.

“Stop-!”

However, they did not listen.

Rasheel and Dodori stopped it to decrease its strength even more… Then they coughed up blood.

“Ugh.” “Ugh, M, mama.”

“D, Dodori!”

Boom.

Cale felt as if his heart sank.

He did not even see that the two Dragons were smiling proudly.

“I’m going to do it too!”

Raon moved to Cale’s side and took the next spot in line.

“Me too.”

Rosalyn came out of the black castle with a large bag of highest-grade magic stones and went after him.

Alberu, who had been drinking dead mana interjected as well. The two of them had blood dripping from their mouths.

‘W, why are these people pus.h.i.+ng themselves so far-?!’

Cale’s face showed more urgency than ever before when Raon spoke brightly and energetically.

“Human, don’t worry! You can rest now! You don’t need to overdo it! I can do it! It will be a bit difficult but I will not faint! I’m sure everybody feels the same way!”

“Ah.”

Cale gasped.

The Super Rock sighed.

– Aigoo.

He then mumbled.

– This is karma. Karma..

Cale took in everything he could see.

Eruhaben and Sheritt and prepared themselves once again and channeled the rest of their powers. Everybody was in front of Cale and they moved very quickly. Cale, who had already cast this large s.h.i.+eld and the other ancient powers, would not be able to move or withdraw these powers very easily

“Haaaa.”

Cale sighed and reached a hand up to grab Raon.

“Human, what is it?”

“Raon, you stop.”

He moved Raon behind his back.

Baaaaaang— baaaaang–! Baaaaang—

After another round of numerous explosions…

Baaaaang—

There was only a small explosion left to strike against Cale’s barriers and s.h.i.+eld.

His allies were bleeding or plopped down as if they were fainting.

Boom. Boom. Boom.

Cale’s heart beat wildly.

The things he had done in the past brushed through his mind.

“N, no!”

Raon’s eyes opened wide in shock.

Eruhaben, Rosalyn, Mila, Rasheel, and Dodori… These individuals, who had been floating in the air with flight magic, started falling to the ground.

They didn’t even have enough mana to keep themselves floating. This was the case for these amazing Dragons and the mage who was touted as the future Magic Tower Tower Master.

Eruhaben was falling the quickest.

“Raon! Flight magic!”

As Raon cast flight magic on them out of reflex and stopped them from falling at Cale’s shout…

“Mom!”

“…It looks like I need to get some rest.”

Lord Sheritt started becoming faint and staticky before she was absorbed into the black castle.

“It’s okay, I just need to rest.”

As Sheritt disappeared after smiling warmly at Raon, Raon clenched Cale’s clothes. His front paw was shaking.

On and Hong poked their heads out of the black castle and could not hide their concern. The children were all looking at Cale.

Cale, who had usually caused this issue and either fainted or fallen over in the past, brushed his face with both hands and turned his head.

Alberu and Mary had already fallen to the ground and had their eyes closed. He could not tell whether they had fainted or fallen asleep. Both of them looked terrible.

Cale felt as if he was looking at himself.

“…Why would they go so far……”

– I will believe that you know exactly why they did this.

Cale could not say anything to the Super Rock’s comment.

He lowered his head.

The s.h.i.+eld covering Puzzle City… People were poking their heads out underneath the s.h.i.+eld one by one.

The ominous red light was gone from their eyes and they could only see the radiant silver s.h.i.+eld and its two wings.

They then saw Cale, who was standing firm.

Cale looked around.

The only people still conscious to take care of the current situation were Choi Han, Clopeh, and himself.

– Ah, by the way, Cale.

The Super Rock talked to him again.

– What are you planning on doing with the temple?

‘Hmm?’.

– That is now ours, no, to be more specific, it is yours. Are you going to take it down with you?

Cale looked at his completely intact and st.u.r.dy silver s.h.i.+eld that looked quite holy, the temple that was destroyed but even the damage made it look vintage and magical… He also looked at the elegant black castle that was mysterious in a different way… And finally, he looked at Choi Han, Clopeh, and the children averaging nine-years-old who were looking at him as if wanting him to tell them what to do, before he clenched his eyes.

However, he quickly came to a decision.

He said the thing they needed to do before anything else.

He gave the order to the individuals who were now looking at him with calm expressions.

“Immediately. We must immediately heal them first.”

The reason he had clenched his eyes shut…

It was because he was worried about his allies’ conditions.

Although everything was over…

Although Cale himself had not fainted…

He did not feel refreshed at all.

The Sound of the Wind, who had been silent this whole time, laughed in a husky voice as she spoke.

– They all learned from seeing you do this, you little punk.

Cale could not say anything back.

The s.h.i.+eld covering Puzzle City disappeared and he could hear people cheering at that moment.

Woooooooooooooooo–

We’re alive–!

Aaaaaaah—–

Delight, relief, concern… Their cheers and teary faces were full of numerous emotions.

# The Birth of a Hero? (2)

“Cale-!”

As Cale clearly heard Duke Deruth’s voice again…

The moment he heard Deruth’s shout through all of the noises he had been hearing while going through the plaza…

‘This is bad.’

Cale truly realized that he was in big trouble.

Cale felt that Deruth Henituse had become a very important person in his life.

The people in the plaza moved away to make way for Duke Deruth to get to Cale.

Duke Deruth had cast aside all elegance as a n.o.ble or a Duke and was running toward Cale without thinking about anything else.

Choi Han bit down on his lips as he watched.

The look on Duke Deruth’s face was stabbing at Choi Han’s heart.

“…It can’t go on like this.”

Cale wanted to nod his head at Choi Han’s mumbling.

‘I can’t meet my father like this!’

Cale knew that although he looked terrible on the outside, he was completely fine.

Of course, it was a bit of a burden when he used the s.h.i.+eld and Embrace earlier. However, probably because he was not able to use that properly and because of this vitality that seemed to start from his heart and spread throughout his body, his body was quickly getting better.

‘Choi Han, let’s go!’

Choi Han did not move. Even Toonka had stopped as he was looking at Duke Deruth with pity on his savage face.

“Ugh.”

Toonka bit down on his lips as if he was suppressing his sorrow.

“Cale!”

Duke Deruth finally reached Cale. His shaking hand moved through the air and touched Cale’s body.

The moment Cale felt the shaking, the moment he felt Deruth touch extremely carefully as If Cale might break…

‘…This isn’t right.

What the heck am I doing right now?’

Those were the thoughts in his head.

Cale thought that he should slightly raise his head to show Deruth that he was fine. As Cale’s body twitched a bit to do that…

Grab!

Duke Deruth had hugged Cale while he was still on Choi Han’s back.

People could not easily start speaking as they watched. n.o.body could cheer while looking at a parent hugging their injured child.

However, the silence did not last very long.

“…Oh no… he must really be seriously injured.”

The comment from a robed individual made people start whispering quietly.

“Hurry up and report to the kingdom. Cale Henituse, the crown prince, and others seem to be in critical condition. It’s so bad even the Saint is worried.”

“I understand.”

People started reporting to their respective kingdoms.

This was not an issue only for the foreign nations. The messengers of the different territories of the Roan Kingdom quickly started reporting to their territories as well.

However, all of this was done stealthily while most of the people at the center of the plaza were sharing words of concern or uneasiness while looking at Deruth who was hugging Cale without moving.

“Mm.”

Choi Han was basically frozen there with Cale on his back.

Choi Han was close enough that he could hear what Duke Deruth was whispering to Cale.

“You’re awake.”

Deruth spoke in a low voice. Choi Han could feel Cale twitching on his back. After having known Cale for a long time… Choi Han believed Cale was scared right now.

“…Fa”

“Shh.”

Deruth stopped Cale from talking and spoke in a vicious tone that Cale had never heard from him before.

“Yes. Let’s keep being hurt like this.”

‘Excuse me?’

Cale wanted to ask back but he listened to his father’s order not to say anything.

He felt as if that was what he should do right now.

“Whether it is the Roan Kingdom or the temple or whatever… You just leave everything to your father and mother. Don’t do anything.”

Cale wanted to respond.

‘I was planning on resting now anyway?’

Cale had nothing to do immediately. Of course, he was still uneasy about the Hunters and their organization, but-

‘It’s not like I will have to do anything about it.’

He was a bit concerned about the disappearance of the Flynn Merchant Guild’s Billos, but-

‘…I’m sure nothing will happen right away.’

He could rest for now and he had no thoughts about doing anything.

“Cale.”

Duke Deruth stopped hugging him after making one more comment.

“Don’t do anything no matter what and sit tight.”

‘Something is weird.’

Cale felt viciousness and coldness in Deruth’s voice for the first time.

He seemed to have realized that Cale was fine after seeing him up close, but…

“If you don’t sit tight and end up doing something…”

Deruth continued speaking.

“I will sit you down in the territory Lord’s position.”

‘What?

Whaaaaat?’

Cale felt his heart sink.

He wanted to immediately open his eyes and ask what Deruth meant by that. But he could not do that. He was told to sit tight.

Deruth looked at Cale’s eyelashes shaking through his messy hair and held back a smile.

‘This works as I expected.’

Deruth was much sharper than Cale realized.

“Sir Choi Han!”

Duke Deruth stepped away from Cale and raised his voice.

“Hurry, please hurry! I’m sorry for stopping you!”

He covered his face with both hands.

“Oh, Cale!”

Cage quickly came over and supported Duke Deruth.

“The young master-nim, we will definitely save young master Cale-nim! Sir Choi Han, please hurry! Toonka-nim!”

“f.u.c.k! Move the f.u.c.k away!”

Toonka shouted in sorrow and anger and ran forward while looking at the Duke leaning weakly against the priestess with his face covered.

They quickly started moving toward City Hall again.

“…M, miss Cage?”

Saint Jack tried to approach Cage with a bewildered look on his face but Hannah stopped him, making him have to follow behind Clopeh who had Alberu on his back.

“…Did you see the look on the Saint-nim’s face?”

“He seemed out of it.”

“I can’t believe the esteemed Saint with his amazing healing power would have such a look on his face. Isn’t this a really big deal?”

“A really big deal?”

“Yeah, it might be really bad. It makes no sense that anybody would be fine after stabbing themselves in the heart. Even if he lasted throughout the battle through superhuman will or endurance, in the end-”

A soldier covered his mouth after being shocked at what he was saying while watching Cale’s group running forward.

A really big deal.

The thought behind those words were things he did not dare to say out loud.

“Hey… D, don’t have such thoughts. No. Something like that, we absolutely can’t.”

His fellow soldier looked around before speaking sternly as if to scold the soldier who spoke. However, his hand that was holding a spear was unable to hide his uneasiness as he clenched and released his spear over and over.

This was the same for the others who heard their conversation as well.

It was especially true for the citizens of the Roan Kingdom, whose expressions were slowly getting worse and worse

They could not stop looking at Cale’s group until they moved past the main entrance of City Hall and entered the Annex.

They could not see anything after that.

Puzzle City’s City Hall Annex was guarded heavily and did not allow any outsiders to enter immediately after Cale’s group went in.

Even Commander Toonka and Queen Litana had to leave because they were outsiders. Thankfully, Saint Jack was able to stay there with his sister Hannah to heal the injured.

* * *

The look on Cale’s face was getting worse as soon as they entered this extremely secretive Annex.

“…Do you really need to-”

There was a pair of pajamas in his hand.

“It’s good.”

Choi Han finished checking the temperature of the water in the bathtub and got up before heading outside the bathroom door.

“I will be standing guard, Cale-nim.”

“Wait-”

Cale’s voice trailed off as he looked elsewhere and not at Choi Han who was heading out.

“Young master-nim.”

His attendant, Ron Molan. Ron had a benign smile on his face while looking at Cale.

‘His gaze-’

Ron’s gaze was extremely vicious.

Cale had never seen such a gaze in Ron’s eyes before. It felt as if he had become Ron’s prey.

‘This vicious old man……’

Cale felt as if he might be squeezed like a lemon if he said the wrong thing.

Cale had seen quite a lot of his friends once the temple walls broke after the illusion tests but he had not seen Ron, Beacrox, or Lock.

However, Ron had greeted them as soon as they entered City Hall.

Everything had proceeded quickly after that. Ron had guided them to place Cale in one of the rooms on the top floor of the Annex and that room must have either been used as a bedroom or was modified, as it looked like a decent bedroom.

“Young master-nim.”

“…Yeah?”

Cale avoided Ron’s benign gaze.

“First of all, you are looking shabby and dirty. Please clean up and make sure to wash off the blood as well.”

“Umm, Ron.”

Cale spoke to Ron who was smiling benignly.

“I should probably go see Raon.”

The Black Castle. He needed to go there to check on the Dragons and Rosalyn.

“Since we are in here, it shouldn’t be difficult to trick people about my condition. n.o.body will know if I called Raon over, became invisible and went to the Black Castle for a moment.”

Cale could now tell what the crown prince was trying to do.

‘This is probably to see and prepare for what happens while the main characters of this battle are out of commission.’

Either that or he was aiming to sweep away people aiming to grab power.

‘It might also be because of King Zed.’

Cale had heard that King Zed had come here.

‘That’s why it should be fine as long as people think that I am in critical condition.’

It was a good thing.

Cale could use this ‘critical condition’ excuse to quietly take care of the things that were left to do. In some ways, this was great. His face lit up.

“Hoohoo.”

‘Hmm?’

Cale flinched and turned his head.

“Hoohoo.”

Ron was laughing. He was laughing quite viciously.

Cale did not know that Ron’s eyes were focused on the grotesque scar visible through Cale’s ripped s.h.i.+rt. The tattoo of the s.h.i.+eld and heart could not be seen properly now because of the grotesque scar.

Cale realized what Ron was looking at after hearing Ron’s laughter.

Cale looked down at the grotesque scar before nonchalantly patting it.

“It’s a medal of honor.”

“…….”

Ron was silent.

Cale subconsciously moved toward the tub after looking at Ron’s cold and stiff face.

“Ha!”

Ron let out a short laugh before moving to the bathroom door, stepping out, and speaking in a low voice as he slowly closed the door.

“May it be a time to release your fatigue, young master-nim.”

Tap.

Cale looked at the closed bathroom door for a moment before was.h.i.+ng himself.

The Super Rock talked to him.

– By the way, your body seems to have gotten a bit better?

Cale finished was.h.i.+ng and turned his head to look at a full body mirror.

Ron seemed to have quickly prepared it. He probably did it to make this place seem similar to Cale’s bedroom in the Henituse Duchy.

Ron was a vicious old man but he was an attentive attendant.

“Oh.”

The scar on his chest was grotesque, but…

Cale’s body was much better than before.

To put it in words… His posture was straighter and his complexion was rosy.

“I guess the World Tree really did give me a good medicine.”

Vitality was still overflowing in his body.

He would probably receive great results if he worked out in his current state. Of course, Cale had no thoughts at all about doing any strength training, sword arts, or martial arts.

Cale was nice and clean after taking the bath and walked out feeling good.

“Mm.”

But he immediately ran into Ron.

“Please lay down.”

Cale had no choice but to lay down on the bed with the blanket up to his neck and had to stay there. Ron was pouring some honey lemon tea into a cup.

Cale looked around.

Choi Han was outside the door while Alberu and Mary were in the rooms on either side of Cale’s bedroom. Clopeh, Cage, and the others were there with them.

In this cozy bedroom…

He was alone in here with Ron.

‘…This isn’t right.

He felt as if he would suffocate.

Ron placed the warm cup of honey lemon tea on the side table as he spoke.

“d.u.c.h.ess Violan and young master Basen will be here soon.”

“Ah.”

Cale subconsciously let out a sigh.

“Ron, his highness and Mary-”

“Miss Tasha is currently looking after both of them and said that neither have any major issues. She said they were close to mana depletion.”

‘Ah.’

Ron stopped talking for a moment before nonchalantly adding on as if this part didn’t matter.

“His Majesty wishes to speak with you as well.”

‘What?’

“Me?”

“Yes, young master-nim. He wishes to see you.”

Cale had no idea why the King would want to see him. However, he had learned that King Zed had some connection to the Hunters through the sealed G.o.d’s illusion tests.

‘Is it because of that?’

Cale started to frown.

Thinking about the Hunters made him think about his maternal family, the Thames, and that red-haired man. That man had said that he would speak to Duke Deruth.

‘…I have a lot of people to meet.’

He needed to find Billos and chat as well.

Cale stood up.

“I need to go if his Majesty is calling for me.”

“Hoo.”

He heard a low laugh. He turned his head to see Ron with a dagger in his hand, cutting a cookie in half while quietly mumbling to himself.

“He’s just a king. He is not more important than your life.”

‘…This scary old man.’

Cale turned his head to look away from Ron’s dagger.

It was at that moment.

Clunk–!

The door opened with a loud noise.

“Cale-nim!”

Choi Han was walking in looking shocked. Rosalyn was with him. Cale wanted to ask if Rosalyn was okay and how she regained consciousness so quickly, but he had no time to do that.

“Young master Cale.”

A pale Rosalyn spoke with a stiff look on her face.

“Mila-nim is looking for you.”

The beige colored Dragon Mila. She was looking for Cale.

And a pale Rosalyn had personally come here.

“Ron. Get me a robe.”

Cale immediately stood up from the bed.

Rosalyn continued speaking to him.

“Eruhaben-nim is in danger.”

Cale recalled the image of Eruhaben falling to the ground.
