Everyone Else is a Returnee – Chapter 119: Combine Everyone’s Strength Into One! – 3

With a deadpan face, Spiera started explaining about the skill, ‘Great Cosmos-severing Spear’.

[Great Cosmos-severing Spear is an advanced skill that I developed according to my personality and characteristics. You should have already learnt an advanced skill that is fit for you, so it will be very difficult to learn my skill as well. You could say that you’ve just fulfilled the bare minimum requirement.] (Spiera)
“I know that much. So how much do I need to train?”
[At least 4 hours a day, for two hundred years.] (Spiera)

Yu IlHan hated himself for thinking ‘that’s not much’ for a moment. Right now, time was flowing normally on Earth!

“What’s the difference between that and mastering other weapons? I’d rather focus on my way of the spear instead.”
[This is also a form of training in the spear. Whatever forms of the spear you have learnt, you can train this alongside it.] (Spiera)

Though, his heart did waver hearing that!

“But if it’s that much, Earth may as well be past the 6th Great Cataclysm.”
[Past 5th Great Cataclysm is already a higher world, IlHan. That’s at the level where the Heaven’s Army or the Destruction Demon Army reside in. With your power alone, you can’t make Earth like that even if you die, so don’t worry! Even if it’s possible, Earth will be destroyed before that!] (Liera)
“That’s sooo consoling, Liera. Thanks!”
[Ehehehe.] (Liera)

Yu IlHan and Liera exchanged smiles. Immediately after though, Liera’s forehead was bruised with a smack from Yu IlHan.

[Damn, you’ve grown.] (Liera)
“Thanks to who.”

Yu IlHan just poured some Breath for her to drink and asked while looking at Spiera.

“Oh right, can I even live that much longer?”
[If it’s you, you should have a lifespan that’s way beyond ordinary humans. It’s also because of the evolution of your body after acquiring 3rd class…… but just with the ‘Unflowing time’ you’ve experienced alone on Earth, your body should have been changed to something akin to a long-living race like those of elves.] (Spiera)
“That’s something I heard for the first time?”

When Yu IlHan turned his face to look at Liera drinking, she turned her head away and spoke as if making an excuse.

[I was going to make you a higher existence anyway…… It’s nothing important anyway…..] (Liera)

He was sure from the fact that Liera avoided his gaze.

It wasn’t like he couldn’t think of the reasons. In the miraculous time he used to evolve and develop while his cells didn’t age, and at the point he had acquired tremendous power disallowed for a human at level 1, he had realized that his physical body was no longer normal.

[However, if it’s just that, I wouldn’t have even suggested it to you.] (Spiera)
“You’re talking about the Hourglass of Eternity, right?’
[Indeed.] (Spiera)

Spiera seriously nodded, but even if she did, there was a piece meat in her mouth anyway, so she didn’t look serious at all.

[*Om…nom…nom…* If you focus on training using the hourglass of eternity, you should be able to shorten the time you take to acquire the skill. I’m expecting somewhere around 30 years.] (Spiera)
[IlHan should be faster though.] (Liera)

Retorted Liera, but Spiera only snorted.

[I’m not looking down on Yu IlHan’s potential. Liera, you should know how difficult it is for one to learn an advanced skill when you have already learnt one of your own.] (Spiera)
[Hmph.] (Liera)

Liera turned her head away. Spiera also didn’t say anything. She only looked at Yu IlHan.
He pondered for a moment, but eventually nodded.

“Yes, this should be a good opportunity. I did think I should train in the spear a little more.”

He used Spear of Untraceable Trajectory splendidly until now. However, the skill level was still below 20, and he was feeling a little unsatisfied as well.

On top of that, he now couldn’t acquire any experience from the majority of the monsters, so he was thinking about polishing his spear, and coincidentally, Spiera’s suggestion came in. If that was related to the spear, then he had no reason to refuse.

[Then let’s start immediately. It should serve as after-meal exercise.] (Spiera)
“No, before that.”

Eating the last piece of meat, Yu IlHan declared with a serious face.

“Let me finish making some weapons first.

A few days passed after that. Fortunately, no connection with another world had occurred yet.

Vanguard’s homepage had been renewed for the first time in 3 months. Selling higher quality weapons again! Also, the standard weapons increased in quality! Everyone who needed weapons rejoiced passionately after seeing that.

The next day of store opening attracted a huge crowd, and only his father, who was newly appointed as the shopkeeper of Vanguard’s store no.1, suffered a lot.

Standard weapons were changed as soon as the stocked up items were sold out, and the higher weapons was planned to be sold 2 weeks later. The qualifications were simple: all clans that participated in the Dungeon Break in Korea, were given tickets.

[There are too many clans insulting you saying they didn’t hear of anything like that?] (Erta)
“They’re all lying so don’t mind them.”

Kang MiRae requested cooperation to many clans by using all of her connections. At least to all the clans that had the physical and financial power to obtain the higher weapons this time.

“And it was them who decided not to come. Do they think I’m some idiot?”

Yu IlHan snorted and put up the second notice. It wasn’t only the clans that cooperated with this incident.

Like the proud ‘strong friends’ of Korea, Suppression, there was at least one government-operated ability user faction in each country. In the case of America, there were 3!

But last night, Kang MiRae used some method or another to deploy tens of different national forces of tens of different countries to hunt around in Seoul and pulled out the roots of the wolfkin belonging to the Destruction Demon Army. She really did have monstrous connections.

And Yu IlHan, who thought about increasing the number of forces on the scale of Suppression, thought that this was a good opportunity to arm the ability users of foreign countries as well.
He had an overflowing amount of materials anyway. If he saved them, they were nothing more than putting some more weight into his inventory. So, he didn’t hold back.

[But this, did you consult with her?] (Erta)
“No, I’m going to do so now.”

Koreans wouldn’t welcome this for sure. They should have been thinking that Vanguard was giving special treatment to Lightning God and Suppression.

Even though the time was of great crisis where the fate of Earth was on the line, people were selfish and wanted all the rewards for their clans and themselves. This was the thought process Yu IlHan hated the most.

[Look at those comments man.] (Liera)
[I see you’re at the center of attention of all people of Earth.] (Spiera)
“Dad is amazing.”

Liera, Spiera, and Yumir were all checking the comments with their noses almost about to hit the monitor. Yumir was a dragon so his eyesight wouldn’t really get worse, but since he was worried anyway, he pulled him and took him in his arm.

“Miss Kang MiRae has a wide vision. If there are any variables, then it’s the possibility that the higher ups of Korea will not look at me in a good light….. but it will be fine if I just say I’ll go off to another country if I don’t feel it’s good here, so things should work out.”

Yu IlHan had nothing to fear in this world. He had solved everything with his own power from the very beginning! No matter how many changes occured in his surroundings, he himself would not change. Although, it was questionable if that could be called a good thing or not.

[You alone are supporting this twisted Earth.] (Spiera)

Looking at Yu IlHan’s back while he was sending a message to Kang MiRae, Spiera muttered. She was really impressed right now.
Of course, Erta knew that Yu IlHan was strengthening the other people since he didn’t want to suffer alone, but she decided to stay quiet for the time being. Spiera will know soon anyway.

[Then when are you planning to activate the barrier?]
“In 4 days, it will be a month since I’ve last used the barrier. At that time, the elves should also be finished dismantling. I’ll probably activate the barrier then.”

Having finished talking, Yu IlHan put away the wolf materials that the elves dismantled with a wave of his hand, and took out a new cadaver.

Dragonkin corpses had long since been dismantled, and right now, they were dismantling 2nd and 3rd class monsters! The elves had reached the state of thoughtless tranquility as they dismantled.

In this ‘harsh training environment’, their skill proficiency was rising rapidly. Perhaps, it was an influence of the Rule skill. Perhaps, he may be able to let them handle 4th class beings in the future too!

[Then it should be fine to commence training for real at that time.] (Spiera)
“Dad, me too! I want to train!”
“Yes, yes. I’ll teach you a whole lot.”

Without having him to talk about it, Yu IlHan let Liera and Erta take care of Yumir as they cleaned around nearby dungeons to level him up.

Of course, the speed couldn’t be compared to the few nights before when he levelled up by killing 3rd classes, and so, his level was only just above 60, but it was a good opportunity to raise skill levels like concealment, and middle-tier wind magic, along with many others.

Now, he was required to avoid simple monster hunting, and needed to train on a deeper level. Skills didn’t only increase just by using; they rose by the experience of using them along with enlightenment and training to acquire those insights! Like what Yu IlHan did in the thousand years!

It would be impossible to make his son suffer for a thousand years, but just by solidifying his foundations using the two months in the barrier, he would be at a level that would not be embarrassing for a dragon to have. No, in fact, he was already beyond that now.

He couldn’t let the elves play around either. He wanted to strengthen them to the point where they could beat up the clan masters in the Front Line Alliance with room to spare. Although they could already do that, he wanted to strengthen them to be able to beat them up with more leisure!

Of course, the most important one was himself. He was planning not only to use up all the piled up materials to make equipment, but also to train in his spear techniques along with the learning the Great Cosmos-severing Spear.

To prepare for the past few days, he supported the elves in dismantling, and refined his physical combat, sword, blunt weapon, and whip movements.
Spiera tried her best to hide her shocked face each time Yu IlHan wielded each weapon, but she couldn’t hide from Yu IlHan who had gained the dao into looking at other people’s expressions.

“I didn’t live long for nothing.”
[You’re long beyond what could be explained by ‘time’. Perhaps 29 years are enough instead of 30.] (Spiera)

Such conversation was repeated for the past few days, and now it came down to 25. Yu IlHan’s aim was to decrease that into 10 after he came out of the barrier.

At that moment, his phone rung. Yu IlHan let go of Mir and pressed the call button. Although Mir still clung onto his chest, that was of no problem.

“It’s Yu IlHan.”
[This is Kang MiRae.]

He hated himself for saying that despite knowing who the opponent is. He was only thankful that Kang MiRae answered him.
Having finished greeting, she naturally continued speaking.

[I’ve checked the Vanguard homepage. You’ve made a big decision.]
“They were all those I was planning to do anyway. Although it’s quite strange to say this is a good opportunity, I could also have an easier time selecting targets to sell my weapons thanks to you gathering the people this time.”

Kang MiRae was silent for a moment. She probably predicted the reason Yu IlHan opened Vanguard, Perhaps, her estimations had turned into confirmation right now.

[Mr. Yu IlHan really wants to just…… protect Earth.]
“No, I only don’t want to suffer alone. I should have told you last time.”

Yu IlHan replied honestly since he didn’t want to get himself into a useless misunderstanding, but that only resulted in Kang MiRae bursting out into laughter. Kang MiRae became silent as if she couldn’t believe it even though she had laughed, but eventually refined her voice and replied.

[Thank you. Even if Mr. Yu IlHan requests anything in compensation for the weapons, our cooperative relationship will only solidify more.]
“I’m happy to hear that I’m able to help. I thought the higher ups of Korea who only know about themselves would feel unsatisfied.”
[……And so.]
“And so?”

Kang MiRae’s voice trembled. The feeling that she was forced to this was quite strong.

[If it’s alright with you, would you be able to free up some time?]
“I will. There’s some information I want to exchange, and there are things I should tell you about.”
[No, it’s not that……]

Spoke Kang MiRae. Yu IlHan solidified after hearing that.

[My father…… wants to meet you, Mr. Yu IlHan.]

Author’s notes

  1. 200 years looks like nothing to him since he already lived for a thousand.
  2. Will Kang MiRae’s father come out intact and not Yu IlHan’s nerves?

    > but she couldn’t hide from Yu IlHan who had gained the dao into looking at other people’s expressions.
    So he even achieved the Dao huh

    1. dragons33

      Makes sense; I’m really curious about just what will happen once he masters magic and fuses that with his martial mastery, some how Godhood comes to mind for me.

      1. Jonathan Hurd

        It seems like he will probably focus a lot on what he is currently using, but given more time I think he will get better at Wielding Fire as a Flame Reaper. Adding that into attacks more efficiently and upping his martial arts seems like the best method to strengthen himself further.

        Better to refine what hes got than make some half assed magic skill at this point.

  2. dragons33

    Thanks for the chapter!
    Well then, I wonder just how Liera will react to this juicy bit of news. Also I’m predicting that Kang MiRae’s father will bring up the topic of engagement (Just a guess).

  3. Candied Skull

    So IlHan was destined in a sense to be a loner forever anyways, even if he never becomes a higher existence because his lifespan exceeds that of all current humans.
    And I guess that means every single animal that went through the 1000 years with him is also likely to live for a lengthy period. I would think pets as well. “This is Fido, the 3000 year old dog. He’s not even particularly magical, he’s just a dog.”

      1. Light

        Yeah, but his base life is already in the hundreds or thousands at minimum judging by what they’re saying, while we already know the odds of a higher existence popping out of a lower world is miniscule. Of course, since Ilhan’s the mc and Mirae and the priestess chick are super talented they might be able to become higher existences as well.

    1. Seink

      Jornalist:”Fido trained for a thousand years the art of burying bones. There is no bone in the world that Fido cant bury in 5 seconds!”
      IlHan walks by and throws a giant dragon skull, a hundred times bigger than himself, to the dog.
      Jornalist:”Well, almost no bones….” (Where the heck did this skull came from!?)

    2. Jonathan Hurd

      I think Ilhan’s and the animals circumstances are a little different. They both lived for the whole 1k years, but it was a reward to Ilhan that he would keep any physical training he did after the fact. The transformation also happened because Ilhan was training his body so vigorously and so consistently. So while the animals did indeed evolve I think their evolution was more in the mental field than the physical.

  4. NoticeMeSenpai

    Hoho, its about time for some good ol purge isn’t it. First Illhan got cheated into siring a son, now he is gonna get tricked into meeting an in-law. That’s if, Liera and Erta doesn’t get them first

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      Tricked seems a bit strange when the person flat out admits they are taking you to meet their parent, lol. Also the enormity of the two crimes seems a bit off, lol.

      Yeah Erta and Liera are going to have some words about motives… First Ilhan is bringing back hot Wolfkin Princesses and now he is meeting another girls parents… where does it end!

      1. dragons33

        You’re right! Our glorious loner protagonist must stay a loner forever, because of his growing protagonist power he’s on the verge of losing his loner power and now he’s in danger! We can only count on Liera and Erta to ensure he remains alone forever! >:|

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      True, but I think honestly when the scale of time gets to a thousand you stop really paying attention and counting. Considering he spent I believe over 300 years to master Blacksmithing at one point continuously. Allocating 200 years to a task doesn’t seem that strange anymore.

  5. Yukino

    He should bring his invisible son and his three invisible angel wives to the marriage interview. Yup, there’s no way anyone would think his loner skill have surpass reason and he becomes delude with imagination families.

  6. Ytalani

    Another foreshadowing. Seems like Ilhan next stop will be a world where higher existence co existed with destruction army. I wonder how short time will it be to evolve his spear???

  7. ambi

    Thanks for the chapter Chamber and Koukouseidesu! Seems like the father caught wind of Yu Ilhan’s identity somehow. Wonder if this will turn out to be a marriage meeting haha.

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      Well Yu Ilhan is officially ‘out’ as the owner of Vanguard. Whether Kang MiRae told her dad about the true identity of Susanoo is a question that will need answering. My personal bet knowing her personality is she probably didn’t tell him. Kang Hajin might of since he seems the dutiful type, but then again Yu Ilhan is not someone you piss off.

      There is also the chance that her dad just guessed it off hand. I mean Susanoo and Vanguard are both existences that kind of break all common logic. So even if they’re not the same person they more than likely have some sort of relationship.

  8. Nykooo

    Honestly, on March 6th, I was there wishing that Chamber’s vacation was already over and that he was working on translating more chapters. Now, I wish him a great vacation and to take his sweet sweet time to come back to us. The fact that him being in vacation became something I was annoyed about can really be summarized by that :

    He’s doing one awesome job every time he’s working on Everyone Else is a Returnee!

    Have fun out there! May you greatest time while not thinking about work at all!

  9. tsukii

    i wonder what would happen if truth about ilhan go out to the world; that he left behind during mass tutorials, that he already lived for millennia…. well,i doubt it happen though

    hey ilhan also already achieved another grand dao
    the dao of pancosmic loner!
    even god won’t find him unless searched seriously!

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      The funny part is each time he keeps getting better at hiding too, lol.

      Honestly at this point I think anything relating to Susanoo just has to be accepted. If you start questioning it now it will either break your pride, sanity, or both, lol.

  10. Paps

    Thanks for the chapter, now Ilhan is planning of making the elves some kind of high elves. And the visit to Mi Rae dad feels like the boyfriend visiting the father in law before askig for permision to marry. Thats a flag loner, don’t fall for it.

  11. alex

    i can just imagine the meeting ending in something similar to
    ilhan: oh pls! ive been killing 4th classes while you were having life and death battles with 2nd classes. you cant do shit to me. if you dont like it, i can leave.”

  12. armanak

    kang mirae: mr. ilhan i want you to meet my parents
    yu ilhan: ………………
    erta & liera: WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!

    next chapter we will probably see a demonic aura coming from liera and erta XD

    1. Shiro

      It was a announcement about the break , but that doesn’t mean there won’t be chapters, he can release the piled up ones in a slower pace .

  13. extasse

    Am I the only who’s supporting Yu IlHan x Kang MiRae just for the simple reason that it’s the most interesting? What I really hate and love about Korean novels is the way they introduce cliff-san at almost every chapter, anywhere possible. The only question now is whether the meeting is before 4 days or after 4 days. Since he’ll be stuck in that hourglass thing for at least a chapter or two.
    Since the reason for him taking 25 years (and decreasing) to learn Great Cosmos-Severing Spear is because it was custom fitted to Spiera’s style. I think what will happen is he will combine his skill (untraceable trajectory) so it fits him more. That way, it might go along the lines of ‘completing the missing parts’ since he will train both skills at once. Maybe it’ll be reduced to under a year.

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      I do gotta say I like Kang MiRae as a love interest. At least better than Na Yuna. Not sure if she surpasses Erta and Liera for me personally. I like Liera’s just completely straightforward affection and Erta’s Tsundere a little bit better than Kang MiRae’s cold efficiency.

      I understand the sadness at Cliff san being introduced at every step, but then again if the author was to answer every cliff hanger before the chapters end he would probably need to double the chapters length, lol.

      I’m guessing Ilhan is just going to get the meeting out of the way before he starts his training spree. Rather get that off his mind so he can full concentrate on the spear.

      Ilhan is definitely going to adapt Spiera’s spear techniques into his own. I mean back in the forgotten Millennium he went around to thousands of different places and modified his arts using hundreds of different martial arts. His Vale Tudo has basically evolved to something completely past what it was at the start. He has all that experience getting insights to others martial art and he is eager to learn more, hehe.
