Everyone Else is a Returnee – Chapter 126: I Invade – 2


The declaration from a higher existence belonging to the Destruction Demon Army, and the connections to other worlds one after the other was proving the statement.
Yu IlHan consulted Kang MiRae about this, and she, with her exceptional abilities had informed the other ability user groups of Earth.

Moreover, as all of them experienced the absurd amount of monsters from Kiroa, literally all ability users agreed to participate if such a thing happened again. Even if it was to acquire Vanguard higher standard weapons, at least they would still do so.

However, Yu IlHan was worried about that. He didn’t like the fact that humanity, in its entirety, was focused on one incident.
This situation, where all ability users and governments flew at these incidents like dogs at a bone.

“While we’re focusing on Abandoned Worlds, wouldn’t some people plot something?”
[What I’m getting from you is that you think the Destruction Demon Army can connect Earth with Abandoned Worlds as they wish?] (Erta)
“I don’t think they’re that capable. If they were, then Earth would have been doomed long time ago. What I want to say is that they have a restricted power. For convenience let’s name it ‘Open Gate’.”

For example, they perhaps might be able to use ‘Open Gate’ to delay or bring forward the time of the connection, or perhaps they might be able to know beforehand when and where the connection happens.

[That’s plenty horrible.] (Erta)
[But now it sounds a whole lot more plausible. Although it’s frustrating to say this, the ruler of the Destruction Demon Army has a considerably amazing ability.] (Liera)
“And only when presuming that our enemy has ‘Open Gate’, does the possibility of working together between groups becomes possible. ‘Open Gate’ only becomes worth it under one precondition.”

Spiera received his words. Her voice was now starting heat up as well.

[A spy that can relay essential information real-time.] (Spiera)
“Yes. And a spy that has a grasp on the situation on the people who are quite capable, including me.”

Yes. If Destruction Demon Army were not aware of the situation on the ability users of Earth, then they would not be able to react so calmly. And potential spies were right in front of Yu IlHan as well.

In front of the 3 angels, Yu IlHan calmly declared.

“There are spies among the guardian angels attached to the ability users. And I said that in plural.”
[We have predicted that much. However, never did I think that they were cooperating with the Destruction Demon Army.] (Spiera)
Just what was their objective? Destruction Demon Army’s dogma, ‘Pure Destruction’, should not be comfortable to the traitors from the Army of Brilliant Light, either! And why is the Destruction Demon Army following their will anyway!] (Spiera)

Spiera fell into confusion and spat out lots of nonsense. Yu IlHan bitterly smiled and calmed her down.

“All of this is just my estimation. There are plenty of unnatural points about it. Don’t believe my words unconditionally. It will be fine to look for the reason after the truth is revealed.”
[I think your words are right, though.] (Spiera)
[I do not doubt it one bit. 100%] (Erta)
[At this point, I’m wondering if the world revolves according to IlHan’s words.] (Liera)
“Good, then let’s move under the pretext that I’m right.”

Leaving aside all, there was one sure thing.

“Whether it’s the Destruction Demon Army or the Army of Brilliant Light that is behind this, there should be some kind of group that are directing the people’s attention to the Abandoned Worlds. And my objective is to find that and destroy it.”
[That sounds very dangerous. That means you are not going to prevent the connection with Abandoned Worlds.] (Liera)
[If you are wrong, you might be at a point of no return.] (Erta)
“It’s alright. I prepared some things just in case something like this happened, while I was in the barrier…… And so, Erta, why don’t you do some delivery?”

Delivery, huh. Erta realized that someone could actually make a higher existence nervous with a single word, but she could only nod at Yu IlHan’s smile.

Erta put the ‘various items’ that took one tenth of Yu IlHan’s inventory into hers, and flew away. As he had told them to move around in secret while not being found by the other angels as all of them were potential spies, she would probably be alright.

Yu IlHan then woke up the sleeping Ericia and ordered her to bring the strong wolves over level 180 over to Earth.

Although he would have to take the risks, this situation was also the biggest opportunity for them to be accepted on Earth. Above all, they could not go against Yu IlHan’s orders, so they had to do what they were told to do.

Ericia, who was aware of that fact, made a disappointed expression momentarily, but still accepted his orders and left.
As she was carrying unique ranked claws to be equipped on wolf elite force, the army under her lead would be able to achieve considerable things.

Finally, Yu IlHan woke up the elves and ordered them after explaining to them the situation.

“You guys go and fight too. Hide your identities properly, and above all, the most important thing is safety. When you go to the battlefield, meet up with Erta, and leave as soon as you determine that the situation is becoming dangerous.”
“As long as I have the artifact Your Majesty has bestowed upon me, I have the confidence to survive against 4th classes.”
“Do not be confident of anything either.”

Ordered Yu IlHan to the elves, and after that he pondered for a long time, but in the end, he put down Yumir on the floor and met his eyes.

“What does Mir want to do?”
“I want to fight and get stronger!”

Yumir was still in shounen-manga protagonist mode. Normally, Yu IlHan would laugh and embrace him, but it was a little different now. Yu IlHan couldn’t accompany him to that battlefield.

“In that place, dad won’t be there, so I can’t protect you. Of course, since I won’t be there, there will be more opportunities for you to fight…… but do you really want to go and fight?”
“Yeah! I want to become stronger!”

He did ponder about this since he knew that it would come to this. However…… Yu IlHan decided to leave them to take care of those incidents as he believed in the talents of the elves, Erta, and most importantly, his son.

“Very well. However, do not participate in incidents that may endanger your life. And keep yourself concealed as much as possible. Promise me, okay?”
“Yeah, promise!”

Smiling brightly, Yumir pinky-promised with Yu IlHan. Yu IlHan was still worried and so, put a sturdy dragon bone helmet on his head, and equipped him a chest protector made of dragon bones. Continuing, he gave him some Breath, and gave the remaining mana potions to him as well.

[So you’ve made a helmet. But why is there no armor, when there’s a chest protector?] (Spiera)
“He’ll advance to 3rd class soon, so he will be hurt if he’s wearing armor at that moment. I made the helmet while considering his growth so that’s fine.”
[I don’t get whether you cherish your son or not.] (Spiera)

The elves gathered with one intention after looking at Yu IlHan taking out various things for Yumir.

“We will protect Mir-nim with our lives!”
“Even if I have to sacrifice my soul, I’ll definitely protect the Imperial Prince!”

Of course, retorting specialist Yu IlHan retorted to them as well.

“Cut the crap, and all of you must survive and come back. I’ll exaggerate a little, but I don’t care about whether other people die or not, so don’t you guys dare die, got it?”
“Dad, I’ll be going!”
“Yes, mir. Don’t get hurt.”

And so, when the elves and Yumir left, silence arrived instantly.

Even though quite a lot of people were chatting inside the barrier made by the Hourglass of Eternity just a while ago, there were only two angels excluding Yu IlHan. He reminisced about his dropout period.

And Liera spoke to him.

[Now, out with your thoughts. There’s no way you’d move without conviction, is there?] (Liera)
“I’m not really all that sure. Although, I think I know what they’re aiming for.”
[Doesn’t the world call that ‘conviction’?] (Spiera)
“Cowards always leave a way out in whatever claims they make.”

In fact, Yu IlHan had already predicted to a certain point, what the Destruction Demon Army and the Army of Brilliant Light was trying to do by grouping up.
Isn’t there something not related to Abandoned Worlds among the things that Yu IlHan had experienced until now?

[……Ah, now that I think about it, the first traitor appeared because he tried to bring an army from another world that had the 4th class mage! I forgot about it since it was all quiet after that!] (Liera)
“Now you remember?” 1

It was a secret that Yu IlHan had also forgot about it recently. Wasn’t this all because of the Destruction Demon Army’s scheme? Anyway, he thought it was fine since he remembered it before it was too late.

“That mage said something about conquering earth through war. I thought it was over by killing that mage, but what if it is happening now?”
[Directing everyone’s eyes to Abandoned Worlds, and hiding the most vital gate connection, and calling an army from another world, right?] (Liera)

While the humans of Earth desperately fought against the monster army that only aimed for destruction and were without ego, an army from another world would nibble away on Earth with conquering as their objective.

If it does become like that, then both the Destruction Demon Army’s goal of calling destruction upon Earth, and the Army of Brilliant Light’s goal of calling other world forces to Earth, would be achieved.

[So that’s it. A connection with another world. That’s definitely it. The Army of Brilliant Light wishes for an army of another world to rule Earth.] (Liera)
[Then why is that? Even while torturing and executing the traitors, I could not find out the reason. Just why do they wish to conquer Earth with humanity from another world? Do they want to play God?] (Spiera)

The answer to that was unknown. Why would she ask Yu IlHan if even torture didn’t bring out an answer… Yu IlHan shrugged his shoulders and replied.

“That’s not my concern. What’s important is that I need to shred them to pieces before they  eat Earth away.”
[Is there a place you have in mind? Otherwise, you’d have to search over the entire Earth.] (Liera)
“Is there a place I have in mind? I do.”

Yu IlHan put on the screen of his smartphone to where he was looking a while before. A line mentioning the destruction of a small country could be seen. Really, no one even commented on it.

Many of them would be interested more in the entertainment world news, and more of them would be interested in the big fight not too long ago, and even more of them would be more interested in Abandoned Worlds that spread out through the angels. It was now even more suspicious.

There were materials regarding what Kang MiRae investigated on as well. If there was an enemy that wished to invade Earth, Yu IlHan thought that now was the best time, since monsters were appearing everywhere and many Abandoned Worlds were being connected to Earth.

[Don’t tell me the downfall of these small countries has something to do with it?] (Liera)
“If it’s not then I can’t help it. I can only wish that the internet would give me the answer.”

Somehow, he remembered the time when he and Erta roamed around Seoul relying on his smartphone to look up where monsters appeared.

At that time too, Yu IlHan could somehow find the answer. He could save the people in places where his eyes could reach.

He wished that the same thing happened again.

    If only those guy could act faster or if only Yu Ilhan wasn’t a flag predictor/crusher, then the invasion might succeed. But now…
    Thanks for the chapter.

      1. Jonathan Hurd

        Spiera is to hated and fanatical to be a spy, lol Erta has also proven herself plenty so I will honestly rage if they try to make her the spy. Liera… well Liera is just too stupid/serious to be a spy, lol.

        I’m okay with Feyta. Feyta seems incompetent but that could be a ploy. She was the only angel directly on the scene when that Overflow in Japan was started and didn’t witness anything.

        1. Jonathan Hurd

          He likes to betray our expectations, but he also likes the betrayal to make some sense. Making Erta to be a traitor would just be plain weird. We have grown to know her too much. Although if the choice was to save Ilhan she and Liera would probably take it. This doesn’t really seem to be that case.

          I can accept Reta’s betrayal because we never really got to know anything about her or her personality. It was surprising sure, but the author also dropped some nice hints to show he was leading the story in that direction.

  2. NoticeMeSenpai

    Yay got the prediction on Fallen Angel and DDA working together somewhat correct 🙂

    Alright, gonna bet that Yuna’s angel is probably a traitor. The silent/ignored ones are always the one the goes crazy in an attempt to gain recognition.

    Btw, does anyone finds it weird that MiRae does not have a guardian angel? Like I thought they assign one to outstanding individuals, and MiRae is someone that is recognised by Illhan, which says a lot about her ability.

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      I was kind of thinking that it was weird MiRae has no Guardian angel too, but they might just be treating her as a group package with YuNa since those two usually work together.

      I agree Feyta is probably going to turn out Traitor. Mainly because shes in the best position among Guardian Angels to gather info. Shes around Kang MiRae who is leading most of the efforts of the defense of Earth. Also considering that weird slip up by not noticing who dropped three Traps of Destruction in Japan. We could also add in that the Grand Canyon gateway didn’t connect to Dareu until Na YuNa’s group got in and met Yu Ilhan there. If the DDA and BAoS have a means to speed up connections to Abandoned Worlds she could of activated that to try and kill Yu Ilhan off.

      The final part is… Feyta is basically the only other Angel we have met that was given a name, lol. Also considering how her opinion is commonly skipped over it would make sense some bitterness. She also seems obsessed with how Na YuNa will save the world. So it is possible that she could be starting fires to let Na YuNa solve them and get more recognition.

      It is odd, Erta had explained before that part of the reason for sending people to other worlds was for people like Kang MiRae with exceptional talent to appear. But the Guardian Angels were assigned to people on Earth with the greatest amount of potential; I can only think that reasons Kang MiRae doesn’t have an assigned angel are:
      1) Kang Mirae’s potential doesn’t scale in the same way as Na Yuna, but grows along with great effort like Yu Ilhan when he first started out in the ‘Forgotten Millennium’. So she wasn’t put on the list as her growth was more predictable. (But I feel like she can eventually reach the same heights as Yu Ilhan so long as she has him for a rival).
      2) Kang Mirae’s pride doesn’t allow her to accept the assistance of an Angel so she refused.
      3) Kang MiRae and Na Yuna are treated as a set so it’s fine pairing an Angel with the support type mage.

      1. Jonathan Hurd

        My bet is number three. Those two do work together all the time and Heaven has said they have a limited number of personnel to devote to Earth. If two high priority targets are going to work as a team makes sense to not send them two Angels. Yu Ilhan is kind of the exception to the rule by having multiple Angels mainly because he is in a partnership with heaven rather than just being protected by them. Also Lita wouldn’t shut up about wanting to go, lol.

        Kang MiRae is plenty strong even at the start to deserve a Guardian Angels help. Though remembering what Erta said way back when she first joined Yu Ilhan. Guardian Angels don’t do much for you. They basically give some advice and that was basically it. They wouldn’t go out of their way to interfere if you are about to die. So one Angel for a group seems pretty reasonable if its just for advice.

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      “So Mir have you packed everything for your mortal combat? Got your Breath?”


      “Got your breastplate and helmet on?”


      “Got your entourage of Elite Elves?”


      “Okay… Have fun out there and kill some for Dad too.”


      “They grow up so fast…” *Eyes tear up*

  3. CyanCrown

    Say, what ever happened to Aegis? That amazing set of flying shields Ilhan made back when he entered the barrier in Daeru.

    I don’t remember him using them, nor have they even been mentioned since to my knowledge. I do remember the story saying that it would be an iconic aspect of Ilhan in the future, though.

    Maybe he’s been using it all this time and I just didn’t grasp that. I thought he was just using his cross bag to throw out thousands of cheap shields he made.

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      Yeah as far as I know Aegis hasn’t found its particular fighting use for him yet. On the brightside, there was that comment that they are going to be a standard weapon of Ilhan. The other thing is in their description is they will be able to evolve under some conditions. So I think their day of use is coming.

      The big reason he probably hasn’t used them is honestly there hasn’t been an enemy to use them against yet. Karrow’s attacks hit everything. The Fenrir wolf was over too fast. The rest of the Fourth class dragons he just killed. I think it will start showing its use when he inevitably fights a 5th class.

  4. Paps

    WHAAAAAA no comments from the author!!!!!!!! Well thanks for the chapter, really Ilhan should take a Detective course I am sure he will ace it. Go now Loner Rampage on the otherworld invading army!!!!!!

  5. Nykooo

    I believe Erta and Liera to be safe from being traitors. Well in some way they are but not right now. Both angels are in love with Yu IlHan and would probably side with him if conflict arise between Heaven and him. But as long as Heaven is not in conflict with him they would not betray in favor of someone else.

    I don’t have a clue about Spiera as she’s very new to the mix. I believe she eliminated the traitor rather quickly when Lita, Erta and IlHan caught him in China.

    Also that waterproof armor newly crafted should be used soon. MC has indeed been pretty accurate while creating randomly new equipments. Since the water armor was mentionned specifically, it should be use quickly.

    1. Jonathan Hurd

      Spiera is too high up to be a traitor. If she was going to betray heaven the best thing she could do is stop killing the other sides, lol. She and Liera are the two greatest war potentials of Heavens Army worthy of being their own combat squad. If she really was traitor just having her leave and kill a bunch of Angels on the way would be the easiest and most effective blade cut.

      I agree she was hasty in her executing the prisoner, but that doesn’t really seem out of character for her. Part of the speed she did it could be to cut off the corruption at its roots. If she didn’t kill him immediately they would have to vote and squabble over his treatment. Others might try to hear out his story and he might convince others that his side is right. While her method is abrupt it does stop him from influencing the others and also sends a very clear message to everyone. You betray us and we will not hesitate to do the same to you.

      I do want to see Ilhan make use of his new Aqua Armor. Maybe come up with a way of combining the ice forming, Blaze, and the Thunderstorm Bracelet, lol. Create a bunch of Icicles near his armor, put Blaze on them, and then send them through a thunderstorm. Get missiles with Fire, Ice, and Lightening Attribute all at the same time!

    2. dragons33

      Personally I think it would be quite a twist if Erta somehow ended up being the traitor, but then gave up on that because she likes Yu Ilhan. I just think it would be amusing if that were the case.

      1. Jonathan Hurd

        I will protest if it ends up being Erta, lol. I like her too much for her to turn out being a Traitor. I think Spiera trusts her too much to end up having her the Traitor in the end though. Also she has been in too many dangerous situations to me to end up having initiated it. Like when Erta was almost killed by Breaker Reta.

  6. Franz

    What i want to know is how did those demon something army know that Yu IlHan is in Dareu, Only few people should know that he’s going to Abandoned world, 1. Erta, 2. Higher-ups of heaven, 3. Reta. With his concealment that time, Even those angels that guarding the entrance should not see him. Even Lita doesn’t know that IlHan went to Abandoned world that time!
