Everyone Else is a Returnee – Chapter 244: You Are Already Dead – 7

[How can this be.]
[7th class…….! The Dragon of Despair!]
[How can that being already be here? The Destruction Demon Army was annihilated!? Whatever happened that caused it to be able to come here? Just who, and how?]
[Kugh…….]

Spiera momentarily tried to look at the Flying fortress where Yu IlHan and his army was residing in, but endured from doing so with her superhuman will. Yu IlHan also noticed what she was doing. At least, he could realize that she had done that for him.

That was why, he was more confused.

“…….Humans really are unpredictable. They aren’t just evil, nor just insane, nor just single-minded.”
“Spiera is not a human but an angel.”
“But I still can’t understand her.”
“Spiera won’t fall for IlHan, right…….?”

Yu IlHan had no confidence that his concealment would work against a 7th class being, but looking at things now, it seemed that his enemy did not see him. His gaze was fixed on Spiera.

[Only you here are capable of making this scene. Yes, how was it to behead a dragon?]
[Very satisfying. I think beheading you will be even more sensational.]

Spiera raised her spear. The 7th class dragon Echjar burst out in laughter at Spiera’s words.

[Interesting, very interesting! It was worth it for me to come here!]
[It is only now that you’re at your leisure. Do you not see the dragon blood flowing on this spear?]

Spiera was provoking an enemy on a higher league than hers without fear. The angels were shocked at her attitude, while contacting Heaven or casting defense magic on her. Of course, the enemy seemed to have confidence as he slowly walked out the gap in the skies.

[I wanted to leave at least one…… No, now that this world became a higher world, if I acquire this world, dragons will naturally keep appearing in the future.]
[You’ll acquire this world?]
[I alone am enough to fight you bitches, but……. The Army of Brilliant Light will also come here soon. We decided to hand them a treasure of the Destruction Demon Army. Well, if you’re frustrated, why don’t you ally with the Garden of Sunset?]

Even while knowing that the alliance will not happen, the dragon provoked the angels. An overwhelming mass of mana that covered its enormous body, enough to eclipse the size of all dragons Yu IlHan had hunted now put together, each materialized into large and sharp weapons.

[Were you so proud to kill a dragon? Well then, how about you show your skills to me as well.]
[You oversized lizard. I’m joyful that I can break a corner of the Destruction Demon Army today.]

The materialized mana charged towards Spiera and the nearby angels. The angels all cast defensive magic, but the weapons penetrated it easily, and as their movements were read already, they instantly pierced through the angels and their defenses.

[Khhak!]
[My LORD!]
“E, eeeek.”

Over ten angels died on the spot. Liera’s hand grabbing Yu IlHan’s shoulder tensed. Although she had left the Heaven’s Army, she could not leave behind her feelings towards the individuals as well.

“It’s not that the angels are moving slowly. That guy’s mana is hindering the angels’ movements……!’
“I’m also analyzing it right now.”

Yu IlHan’s voice that replied to Liera’s words that she said while clenching her teeth, was also full of nervousness. Currently, he was focusing his all on recording everything within his range of senses with the Record skill, but as the enemy was of 7th class, he was feeling a pressure. Falling Down would probably not work either.
The reason was simple. The enemy’s reserve of mana was way too large. An overwhelming amount of mana that Yu IlHan could not bear was hindering him from recognizing, recording, and restricting the enemy! And this was relatively fast as well since he had concealed himself.

[Haaaaaaap!]

While all other angels had given up on resistance, only Spiera shouted and swung her spear towards him – with the Great Cosmos-severing Spear that killed the 6th class Teraka instantly, despite being helped by concealment!

[Fuu.]

However, the shield that the enemy made in less than an instant with just a snort simply blocked that strike. Spiera’s full out attack continued for several more times, but the shield blocked everything.

[Hm.]

Muttered he in exclamation.

[You are especially strong for a 6th class. However, that’s it. You cannot reach me. No, oh, is that it? Was this to buy time for your allies to retreat?]

The moment the dragon’s wings unfolded widely, the moment flames filled the air! – the wings of the angels that tried to flee while leaving Spiera, could not endure and melted like the wings of Icarus. And then a large-scale ice magic came afterwards! Spiera desperately swung her spear to cut apart his mana, but just the traces of the magic was enough to freeze a part of an angel.

[Oh, Lord God.]
[Please give us salvation. If you cannot save me, please bestow salvation upon my colleagues…..!]
[That damned God, that disgusting God! Call him out here, I SAID CALL HIM OUT!]

The more the dragon’s wings flapped, the more it snorted, the more angels groaned in pain. Only the sole 6th class, Spiera, was holding out relatively well.
Yu IlHan was worried that Erta might be within their ranks, but fortunately, she could not be seen among them. It seemed that she had fled early on.

Mystic was retreating from the moment the dragon appeared, but judged that that was not enough and reported to Yu IlHan.

[Master, I think we’ll be affected soon. I can nullify it, but the concealment would probably wear off in the process.]
“Yes, flee. We need to flee.”

Even with Yu IlHan’s reckless attitude, he could not enforce it on the army he had, there were still loads of 3rd class beings here, there’s no way he could let them go against a 7th class!

Even Yumir, a 4th class, and of the same kin, had a nosebleed while standing on the outer wall of the Flying fortress. Although he seemed to have been inspired a lot from the extreme limits that his race could reach, any more than this would be dangerous even for him.

“Mystic, I will now send the Flying fortress and the Guardian fortress to a safe region…… the concealment would wear off immediately, but there should be no problems in defending yourself on the spot, so don’t worry about that.”
[Concealment will wear off……? Master, you?]
“I, I……. of course, gotta kill that guy.”

Even the ever-confident Yu IlHan could not keep his confidence in this situation. He felt his own voice trembling and let out a laughter. However, he did not plan to retreat here.

“As long as the battle is within this continent, no one will catch me, so I have the confidence to survive. Moreover.”

I said this last time, but a person’s heart is mysterious indeed.

He muttered that inside his heart and looked at Spiera who was facing off against a 7th class dragon. Although he never changed his mind to screw her up, and was also building his plans towards that……

“I can’t send her off so easily like this. If I did that, I’ll die due to the tugging on my mind.”
“You really are an idiot. Though, that side about you is cool as well.”

Liera did not stop him. Instead, she stood by his side quietly. This was her expression of never leaving his side even if she had to die.

“That magic formation can cover for the two of us, right?”
“I can’t help it I guess.”

Yu IlHan accepted her with a bitter smile. Yumir, Na YuNa, and Yu IlHan’s other subordinates that saw the two wished to go with them, but he firmly shook his head.

“You guys are too lacking. Moreover, I’m going to come back alive so don’t look at me as if I’m going to die there.”
“But Your majesty, we met after such a long time……”
“I said I won’t die.”
“But…….”

The most worried was Na YuNa.

“Mr. IlHan. Let’s just all escape to Earth, please?”
“Miss YuNa, if we don’t proceed, what remains is only regress. Fleeing will become a habit. We’ll have to face that guy anyway once the Earth becomes a higher world.”

Although Yu IlHan didn’t know this, his words were similar to what Teraka said. And Teraka, had met a vain death after saying those words.
Of course, Teraka and Yu IlHan had differences, but whether that will work against a 7th class being, he did not know. Looking at the rampaging dragon, he thought that he had acquired enough records, but even the most amazing of records would lose meaning without the ability to realize the potential.

Despite that, Yu IlHan’s voice was full of confidence.

“Go first. I’ll finish it off real quick and come back.’
“Uuuu, that’s really dangerous though. Mr. IlHan, you idiot, iiiiidiot!”

Having felt that she could not stop him, Na YuNa muttered in dejection and hopped towards him. Even Liera, who would have normally blocked her, let her be for now, and Na YuNa could be embraced by Yu IlHan. She dug her face into his chest and spoke.

“I’m going to curse you if you die. I’m going to reveal the contents of the “New Folder” on your pc or the entire D drive!”
“I’m fine with everything else, but please delete the ‘English lectures’ folder.”
“Iiiiiidiot.”

[Kahak.]

While Yu IlHan was persuading his subordinates, the battlefield was progressing rapidly as well. Over half of the angels that came to Dareu had died, and half of that number safely escaped the battlefield, and Spiera, who was swinging her spear without holding back in order to buy time for the others to flee, was already half-dying.

[Hmm, you’re not enough.]

However, at this point, Echjar felt a sense of awkwardness.

[You should not have been able to kill Teraka so easily with that much power.]
[Why don’t you test me. You have not brought out my all!]
[Hah.]

At the same time the dragon swung with his wings, the wind that generated assaulted Spiera. She severed the attack with several attacks of the Great Cosmos-severing Spear, but the aura that she could not cut apart inflicted a light wound on her body. Right now, even that light wound was very serious for her.

[Your attack power is strong indeed, but something is definitely lacking. Just what could it be. So that’s it. You lack speed and concealment.]

Echjar reached the conclusion quickly.

[There is someone else. There is someone else that I don’t know about, in this place!]

At the same time he shouted that, a violent surge of mana exploded outwards with him as the center! Yu IlHan immediately activated the magic formation to send everyone other than himself and Liera, but he coulndn’t safely bypass the shock of the mana explosion even with five Aegis shields stacked together.

“Kugh.”
“Kyaak!”

The shock that even Infernal dragon body could not absolve inflicted shock on Yu IlHan. However, it was fortunate that Liera wasn’t seriously injured as he had embraced her.

[I definitely felt something. But I still cannot know where that is.]
[Dragon, did you get Alzheimer’s after living so long? I said there was no such thing.]

Spiera laughed at him and took up her spear. Although her blood-covered arms were trembling minutely, the aura at her spear tip was still as bright as ever.

[You must not be thinking that only the Destruction Demon Army possess 7th class beings. You were too reckless. You’ve blown this war very far out of proportion.]
[Do you think I fear anyone? I am the King of Dragons. The 13th Battalion Commander of the Destruction Demon Army, Echjar!]

Echjar’s attention that was headed to a certain someone hiding within the area fixed on Spiera yet again. Liera thought that this was the perfect time to do a surprise attack, but Yu IlHan shook his head.

“What he showed from the beginning until now is all a feint. From the moment he appeared, he knew of my existence, and he has not let go of his wariness towards me. You remember how the 5th class giant was prepared against my surprise attack right? This guy definitely has something as well.”

However, the option on Yu IlHan’s gauntlet – calling out a shadow to distract the others – was not ready to reuse yet. He wondered if it would work even if he could use it.

“Then…… then what are you going to do? We can only run away.”
“Actually, it’s not quite like that either.”

Yu IlHan watched as Spiera attacked with all her power, and as the dragon only snorted and prepared a large scale magic, while he prepared his own skill as well.

What would be consumed as 1,300 4th class magic stones and 15 5th class magic stones. This was a tremendous requirement to prepare for a single skill, but he could only use them all as the ‘target of accompaniment’ of the skill was quite a high tiered being after all.

“If it is found out that I used this method, I wouldn’t be able to use it again, and though I thought about using this against Spiera, though this is a method I did not plan to use without Erta’s help…”
“IlHan……”
“However, against an opponent that’s firing large scale magics like nothing, it should be possible. It’s probably trying to discover where I am, but……”

That would instead be his downfall. Yu IlHan noticed that the skill was ready and waited for the right timing nervously.

[Die, beast!]
[Kroaaaaaaaaar!]

Not yet, Spiera had just commenced attack on him.

[You’ll do what with this puny attack? It’s so funny that I don’t know what to do, you angel!]

His mana puffed up. The mana forms a meticulous structure and into magic.

The magic activates. The shiveringly cold icy aura that spread from him instantly spread towards the surroundings and put not only Spiera into his attack range, but Yu IlHan and Liera as well…… and at that moment.

“Now!”

Yu IlHan activated the skill.

The name of the skill was Warp, and the destination was none other than Earth.

The rarest of skills, Warp, that allowed him to leap worlds with others if he consumed additional magic stones. The ‘target that the user wants to’ on the skill explanation, did not necessarily mean allies, and it could be anyone that he wanted to accompany him.
In other words, if he wished to, and had enough magic stones to consume, even Echjar could be drawn into the Warp skill, and that meant…..

“Kuuuuuugh.”
“Ugh.”
[…….What?]

The four beings that were safely warped to Earth, voiced out with different expressions. Yu IlHan and Liera in pain, Spiera in confusion and panic, and.

[Kkuaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahk!]

Due to the fact that he attacked a ‘lower existence’ ‘first’ in a ‘lower world’, Echjar screamed as the pain of his qualifications of a higher existence being stripped from him began.


Author’s notes

  1. Like what he said, the ‘warp attack’ was a method that Yu IlHan was going to use on Spiera. Some of you may have realized from the previous chapter!

 


Translator’s notes
Note: Do NOT ask ME for answers. I don’t know how that works, I’m the translator not the author. I thought he told the kids ‘don’t resist’ when he took them to Breya. I have a lot of doubts as well. Just don’t think about the theory. Just sit back and enjoy the read, and marvel at Yu IlHan’s smarts.

If you ask me why there were only two chapters for the past few days, it’s because I’m having a neural meltdown from the translation and heat. (I also set up a new PC – a cheap one – and I’m not used to the keyboard yet, and that took time to set up as well.)

        That’s assuming he survives. It was said normally they die when their classes are stripped. And if he survives he’ll technically be 4th class, but judging by Liera, he’ll probably be Ilhan-class since he’ll keep his skills and a large amount of power.

      what do you think guys, rather than the dragon will yu ilhan confront spiera into fighting or will he settle it with talking?

      1. Jonathan

        Well she won’t be stripped of her rank as long as she doesn’t attack first. Seeing that happen in front her it probably won’t work trying to trick her like he did to the Dragon.

        My bet is probably negotiation. I think fighting is the last option he will pursue. Besides if they really disagree he doesn’t actually have to fight her. He could always just leave her there. No one knows she ended up there and shes not connected to Heaven there. Basically hold her hostage against Heaven.

      The Dragon of Despair is now a lizard because he attacked first. So, IllHan can just skewer it and roast it over a fire. But now that he’s 4th class, no 7th class material.

    yeah the warp skill is a bit inconsistent like didn’t it take a bit of time to warp and wasn’t instantaneous. Doesn’t bother me though it is still a cool way to fight a 7th class even if it is a bit of a deus ex machina.

      That’s what he was preparing though, it wasn’t instantaneous, he prepared it while he was concealed.

      He prepared warp beforehands.

      Also, regarding other targets. It would probably means 2 things:
      If the other party resist, it may mean a not-so-safe travel, more when you go to an unforseen place. And 2nd, ”resisting target” may mean a mayor use of magic stones and/or the chance of failure on resisiting targets (Didn’t apply to Spiera and Echjar since it was a surprice attack).

    It could just be a matter of scale. Because there were thousands, they might escape his perception accidentally by resisting.

    Or it was just to reassure them, not necessarily something that hinders his Warp.

    It probably has to do with the absurd amount of Cores that Illhan used.

    A resisting target needs more power. Hence the use of 5th class cores.

    And had the dragon gone against the warp nothign would happen.

    Which is why Illhan said something like if its known it wont work.

      I feel like the problem is less that the Warp can fail and more that the opponents in the future won’t be stupid enough to be randomly unleashing wide scale attacks.

      I mean just moving someone to Earth isn’t really that big of a deal. The big problem for the Dragon is that his attack hit Yu Ilhan and Liera ‘first’. That shows Warp isn’t counted as an attack against him. If he wasn’t being stripped of his power he could just wait on Earth or send out a signal to the rest of DDA to pick him up.

    “The rarest of skills, Warp, that allowed him to leap worlds with others if he consumed additional magic stones. The ‘target that the user wants to’ on the skill explanation, did not necessarily mean allies, and it could be anyone that he wanted to accompany him.
    In other words, if he wished to, and had enough magic stones to consume, even Echjar could be drawn into the Warp skill.”

    Basically, an allied individual would need less resources to warp but they have to except it, as in its a two way confirmation system for them. But used against non-allied individuals require exponentially higher cost but no confirmation from the targeted individual. That’s what I feel is happening.

    thanks for the chapter~
    that do not resist part might be the reason why ilhan waited for the right timing to warp them all. Echjar was in the middle of an attack so he was caught off guard and at the same time, he ‘accidentally’ launched the first attack on a lower existence in a lower world, stripping his own qualifications.
    the warp skill may be prevented if you guarded against it.

    just my thoughts.

    1. Jonathan

      To be fair it never really said that guarding would stop the warp. Ilhan could of said that so they didn’t hurt themselves from panicking.

    So something i just thought about, but Yu Ilhan didn’t really need to take Spiera with them if his only goal was to kill the Dragon. Since the dragon needed to attack lower existences and the attack targets were Ilhan and Liera.

    I think Ilhan dragged Spiera here to probably ‘deal with’ her away from the eyes of Heaven. She is currently basically half dead thanks to the fight so if it came down to a fight I think Ilhan + Liera probably have the upper hand.

    Also I’m just going to bet that Ilhan makes a chest piece out of the remains of Echjar and maybe boots out of Teraka. Also predicting Teraka having a Dragon Heart. Just so Spiera fully regrets giving up all the spoils from him, lol.
