Everyone Else is a Returnee – Chapter 248: You Are Already Dead – 11

While the elven blacksmiths busied themselves with dismantling the dragons on the spot, Yu IlHan made most of the elves and the wolfkin to go inside to rest, while leaving a few to be on guard, then he went looking for Yumir.
He was in his room in the Flying fortress, and when Yu IlHan opened the door, Mir slowly walked towards him and hugged Yu IlHan. He looked like a 15 year-old, but his actions were natural even if you take 10 years away.

“Did you kill him?”
“That’s good.”

The child dragon in Yu IlHan’s arms thought about something after hearing the natural reply and asked him.

“How did you kill him?”
“I aimed for the moment he used a large-scale magic that had me in the range and moved to Earth with him. As he had broken the rules of the Destruction Demon Army, he fell to a lower existence, his mana leaked out, and from there, it wasn’t that difficult to win against him.”
“Hing, I can’t do that. I won’t be able to win.”

Yumir, who understood everything with Yu IlHan’s simple explanation, bit his lips and grumbled. Yu IlHan smiled by at the sight of his son struggling, and patted his back.

“Well, of course now. Even I wouldn’t be able to win if not for such a cheat.”
“But in the end, dad won and the dragon died. Then dad is stronger…… but I’m too weak.”

The standard of strength for a dragon was cold-blooded and frightening. However, the words he added made Yu IlHan smile.

“Mir still has a lot of time. You can become plenty stronger in the future.”
“Like that dragon?”
“Hm……. You’ll need a lot of time, but yes. Definitely.”
“But if I don’t become stronger right now, I’ll only be a burden to dad.”
“I don’t fight against such guys all the time. And you are already of plenty help to me right now.”
“I want to fight with dad though…… Hing, but that dragon is still impossible.”

It seemed that Yumir had taken quite a shock after looking at Echjar. In addition, Yu IlHan also thought that Echjar’s appearance had not been a good influence on Yumir.

As he had grown shockingly fast until now, it would be fine if he had confidence in his strength now, but such an absurd monster had appeared and snapped his confidence in half! Moreover, it was a dragon species as well! Now, it wouldn’t be strange if he thought his powers were nothing in the face of overwhelming might, and lose his will to progress.

Yu IlHan thought about what he could do to cheer him up again, and remembered the reason he looked for Yumir in the first place.

“Dad has brought a lot of dragon mean. You’ll become stronger faster if you eat them. I’ll give you Teraka and Echjar’s meat as well.”
“Uuu, I’m always receiving things from dad.”

Oh, it seemed like he had completely fallen into self-denial mode. Yu IlHan thought that there was still time to puberty since he was still young despite being big, but perhaps that wasn’t it?
As Yu IlHan had no experience rearing a child, he could not judge how to console the current Yumir.

“Uh, eeeei.”

However, just as the daddy Yu IlHan was looking for a way out, Yumir cheered himself up. Perhaps due to not being with Yu IlHan since young, he had grown up to be a confident child.

“That’s why I’ll find something that I can do for dad.”
“You’re already giving me so much!”

Yu IlHan voiced sorrily to Mir. However, Yumir shook his head and spoke as if he had already decided.

“I’ll give you a daughter-in-law!”
“No, I don’t need one. You’re still too young for marriage…… but who said that to you?”

Mir asked back in shock when Yu IlHan said that he didn’t need a daughter-in-law.
“Then just what can I give you?”

“You can just become stronger. With dad. You have to eat meat and train as well.”

Hearing ‘stronger’, he looked more cheered up than before.

“I’ll become strong.”
“I’m going to eat a lot and become a lot stronger.”
“Yes, yes.”
“I’m going to become stronger than that dragon.”
“You will.”

Good, he had climbed over the big hill. Yu IlHan stroked Yumir’s head as he grew relieved. Perhaps because his mind was sorted out, Yumir stroked his own stomach and muttered.

“Dad, I’m hungry.”
“Yes, there should be no battle for a while, so let’s eat up first.”

It wasn’t just Yumir, Today, he would host a banquet to celebrate the day he acquired a 6th and a 7th class dragon corpse……I mean, to celebrate the first victory of the alliance.

“Good, let’s call them all here.”
“What about the guys dismantling dragons over there?”
“They’ll eat their own dismantled meat.”

Yu IlHan, who became busy because he now had to cook all the cooking ingredients that had piled up in his inventory, walked to the kitchen inside the mansion. Yumir also wiped away the last bit of tears on his eyes and followed his back.

The news about the obliteration of the Destruction Demon Army invasion party, and the death of Echjar, the 13th Battalion Commander that came for revenge, rapidly spread to each of the factions.
Everyone in Dareu had felt his descent, and he did not come back after disappearing, so only an idiot would not notice his death.

[The 13th Battalion Commander…….? That dragon died? And in Dareu, a colony of dragons?]
[I’m not sure about 6th classes, but it has been thousands of years since the last 7th class being died.]
[Will there be a large-scale war again? To think such a battle would occur not on the Wall of Chaos, or Earth, but Dareu instead……]

The death of a Battalion Commander was definitely not light. There may be a shift in balance that could possibly bring about further chaos, so not only the Destruction Demon Army, and the other factions didn’t really welcome this matter either.

And the most important piece of news in this matter was not the dead Echjar, but the identity of the one that killed him.

[Who did it? Which faction do they belong to?]
[Definitely from Heaven’s Army. But I don’t know who it is.]

The ones that survived the battle after the Destruction Demon Army were obliterated were only angels. Other than the Heaven’s Army, it was difficult for the other factions to find proper information. As such, they could only judge with what little clues they had.

[The last he was seen was him attacking the Heaven’s Army. Echjar, who was enraged at the death of his successor, went to Dareu, but died just like that…… I do not understand what kind of method was used.]
[It was confirmed that he had teleported through dimensions. A sudden, forceful teleportation that pulls every bit of the surroundings…… this is impossible with just magic alone. There was a skill involved here.]
[The 6th class high angel there was definitely called…… Spiera? She was an angel that was predicted to reach 7th class within the next thousand years. However, it should have been impossible for her……]
[I cannot understand what is happening.]

They stopped their thoughts there. They only put up their guard against the Heaven’s Army and forceful dimensional teleportation. As Yu IlHan had expected, the attention and wariness towards him was targeted towards the Heaven’s Army instead.

However, the Destruction Demon Army was different. Although all forms of communication was severed from the moment Echjar was dragged off to Earth, the one they clashed against the most was Yu IlHan, and they had collected a lot of amount of information about him.

[Yu IlHan, it’s definitely that human. Everyone felt that Echjar had lost his qualifications as a Destruction Demon Army member, right? He made that happen.]

So, it wasn’t that difficult for them to find out who and how Echjar was killed.

[That human? The one that Teraka set his eyes on?]
[Teraka was killed by Spiera. That courageous and beautiful angel!]
[Spiera, she’s a woman I want to trample on one day. She’s as stiff as she is lovely.]
[Everyone shut up, we are talking about Yu IlHan right now.]

Inside a temple so huge that hundreds of pillars exceeding 300m tall had to support the roof, several monsters were giggling unpleasantly around a round table that had a fountain of boiling blood in the middle. Any one of these monsters could destroy several worlds.

[Yu IlHan?]
[I haven’t heard of that name before.]
[He’s a lower existence.]
[A lower existence? I was called here because of a lower existence? Oooh, very surprising.]

Not many worlds could host all of these frightening monsters.

The name of this world, where everything was gigantic and overwhelming, was Elo Katra. It was a higher world located beyond the Wall of Chaos, where the war between the Heaven’s Army and the Destruction Demon Army happened the most frequently, and was also the main headquarters of these predators.

The ‘mankind’ of this world became extinct long ago as a thick fog containing curse and heat, one that made breathing impossible for any beings lower than 4th class, had covered this world. The weather changed according to the ruler’s whims, and so, even the most rigid of plants could not grow and withered easily.

And so, those that were able to endure living in this world were all strong and vicious. The Destruction Demon Army was just the most vicious of the bunch.

And the ones here were those that were not lacking in any way to be among the best of the best. The conference of the Battalion Commanders of the Destruction Demon Army. This was the identity of the frightening meeting. Although not all Battalion commanders had come, this number was  still very splendid!

[Is it important that he is a lower existence? Isn’t it more important that he killed Echjar!]

From the mouth of the 8th Battalion Commander of the Destruction Demon Army, Zenusva, a breath like magma flowed out. It was a giant bird that was made of pure mana fire.

[A strong pillar of the Destruction Demon Army had disappeared! Are you going to just laugh over his death!]
[Echjar’s mana was vicious alright.]
[His curse was even more vicious. But, didn’t you say he fell to a lower existence? Isn’t it possible for him to die then? Is it something to be so surprised about?]
[What IS surprising, is that a mere lower existence has the power to lower a 7th class Battalion Commander to the same level.]
[That’s definitely something we can’t overlook.]

The 10th Battalion Commander, Melohinne, nodded her head. It was one of the rare female commanders, and excluding her frozen white skin and a 20m tall stature, she was a very beautiful lady even by human standards.

She continued speaking in agreement to Zenusva.

[Then we can just make him join the Destruction Demon Army.]
[Oh, that’s good!]

Zenusva shouted in surprise. However, the majority of the Battalion Commanders in this conference liked her suggestion very much.

[The one that killed a Battalion Commander!?]
[That’s precisely why we need to bring him in. Whether it’s petty tricks or whatnot, it’s the undeniable truth that he killed Echjar, no? I can’t wait to see how he grows up in the future. Oh, and I’m also curious about how he looks. Very, very much.]
[Yes, I’m also curious about what his face looks like.]
[But Melohinne, no ordinary size should satisfy you.]
[Fufu, shut up.]
[The one that massacred the Destruction Demon Army so much, as a member…… no.]

Zenusva, who was listening to the opinions of other Battalion Commanders, sighed a little, but still shook its bird head and muttered.

[Is that so? Yes, this was our way of doing things. It seems that my brain has rotten from the long years of peace.]
[I did hear that the Heaven’s Army has their eyes on him.]
[We can just tell him what happened with Earth. Then, he will never be able to choose the Heaven’s Army. Well, then. Let’s hurry while he’s still in Dareu. We still can’t go to Earth yet after all.]
[Earth? Heaven’s Army? Someone explain.]

A charming woman with three pairs of bat wings behind her back, the 3rd Battalion Commander, Helièna, asked and Zenusva palmed its face with a sigh, when the Battalion Commanders that did not know the specifics all closed their eyes. Just with that, the thoughts in Zenusva’s head was transferred to them.

[Oh my, quite the interesting man indeed.]

Hearing everything, even Helièna started to take interest in Yu IlHan. Melohinne, who half expected things to come to this, roared at her.

[He’s mine.]
[Well, wouldn’t he like me more?]
[It doesn’t matter who takes him. What’s important is the matter about how to bring him to the army.]
[Yes. That’s my field of specialty indeed.]

Helièna stuck out her red tongue and licked her upper lips and glistened her eyes charmingly.

[No man can reject me. He might have killed a dragon, but he shouldn’t be able to win against the power of the Succubus Queen.]

Yu IlHan was a guy that could reject the full on advances of a 6th class angel blessed by the god of love, and the woman who was blessed by the goddess of beauty, but Helièna was overconfident in her ability and ignored that vital piece of information.

That day, another Battalion Commander headed to Dareu once again.
The war for Dareu had just increased in scale by an entire order of magnitude.

Author’s notes

  1. If every kid was like Mir, then Earth in 10 years would have become a planet of war.
  2. The Destruction Demon Army has a mysterious way of thinking. Would Helièna be able to put up her pride as a woman?
  3. I’ll say this because I predict a comment like this will appear, but there are no more additional heroines. (T/N: Does that mean Helièna counts?)

    1. Anon

      Probably the mom. Moms are always the ones who seek for more grandchildren, so she probably even sneakily told yumir to get some grandchild for Illhan(when it’s actually for her)

      1. Ole

        I’ll say this because I predict a comment like this will appear, but there are no more additional heroines. (T/N: Does that mean Helièna counts?)

        I would say there is a chance she will join his team. We are talking about the succubus queen, probably one of the top beauties in the world.
        Succubus probably 7th class, I don’t see how they could beat her with their current strength, using the same tactics probably wont work(and would be boring to read if it actually worked)

        1. Jonathan

          Yeah I don’t think Ilhan is going to directly confront her yet. Also from what they said she doesn’t want to kill him but recruit him. So attacking him is also probably not in her plans at this point. She might honestly try to join up with him and maybe even help him attack the Garden of Sunset or the Army of Brilliant Light.

          She might actually come along to watch him fight just to see what kind of strength he actually has. It is true he killed a 7th class dragon but that probably involved a lot of tricks. The higher ups of DDA will probably want to see how much of a mess he can make of the others before they try to recruit him.

          1. HaLLoWeeN

            I wonder if the Succubus that will “attack” him can keep up with his transcendent regeneration ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

        2. James

          Agreed, Succubus tries to woo Yu IllHan, doesn’t faze him because he’s a) a loner, b) well-fed, and c) too immersed in his work to care.

          And also agree, the 5th wall is erected and blocking Yu IllHan’s way to higher existence, and he has to find a way to not only over come the Rules, but find a way for his subordinates to become higher existences as well.

          And agreed, a succubus on the team? There’s already enough attention seekers to kill a plant, we don’t need one that can kill 5 in a row.

          1. Jonathan

            Would be pretty amusing to see her interactions with the other girls, lol.

            For the rest of Ilhan’s teams ascension. I think that most of them are probably just going to borrow from his records. Basically he’ll be the Leader of his own faction. I have a feeling Yumir might try to ascend on his own to follow his dad’s footsteps and not be completely reliant on him.

    1. Jonathan

      After finding out about how amazing Yu Ilhan’s Transcendent Regeneration is I think adding a few more is fine, lol. Yu Ilhan can handle it! Also I want to see him getting a Title for this, lol.

    1. James

      But what do you think her reaction will be?
      I bet “Hey! Look at my naked, lustful body. Want some bedroom action!?”
      He says, “Two things, Buzz off, and already taken.”

  1. Andyman301

    Thanks, danke, merci, gracias, спасибо, arigato and every other form of thanks for this chapter!
    I think first author’s note was pretty funny xD

  2. Naga

    Usually I would have bet her being a harem member but our MC is a destroyer of cliches like when Mystia first appeared I was sure wondering if she would join but she was killed that brutally lol

    1. Jonathan

      To be fair she did end up joining him in the end, :D. I’m kind of curious if Ilhan got a Soul Fragment from the 7th Class Dragon. He honestly would probably despise Ilhan but would be funny if Ilhan eventually domesticated him.

      1. James

        Despise to the bitter end. Killed his predecessor, ruined his plan for Dareu, humiliated him by resisting and overcoming his curse while building a better bucket out of his blood in front of him, and tricked him into attacking on a Lower World.

        In all senses, on more noisy voice to add to his arsenal, if the soul fragment got uploaded into him.

        1. Jonathan

          I kind of feel like the DDA is built on the idea of if you can’t beat them join them. We kind of see that with how the other leaders are reacting to his death. At this point he could try and climb his way back up as a Soul Fragment.

          I do think that he might need to be subdued by a tag team of Mystic and Orochi though. Would be interesting to see what he would put that guy into. Maybe the other castle, or a new Weapon Ilhan makes out of his corpse.

          1. James

            Either a mirror or a Cursed-based Pile bunker. Can’t see him as the Guardian Castle until he’s ruled and says “I’m ready, Master.”

  3. Taurus​_Silver

    Thanks for the chapter.
    I wonder how much energy you have left for RL after doing this every day.
    RIP inconsequential side character…

  4. BlitzRazor

    Thanks for the entertainment.
    So i guess he’ll make an equipment for Na Yuna next? Since it has beauty written all over it. The succubus(material) i mean.

  5. Jonathan

    Thanks for the Chapters and for the love of god take a break if you feel its getting to be too much. We’ll understand.

    So just calling it now. Ilhan’s 5th class is going to be the Dragon Spear Hell God because that will be amazing.

    Also I kind of want Ilhan to make some contacts from other factions. DDA finally getting serious about sending people to contact him. I want the others to follow suit, :D.

  6. Deamon

    Poor succubus either she dies, or joins him because Liera will kill him if he falls for her. Also I swear the heavens army has brainwashed Spiera, she’s like a cult fanatic.

  7. That guy

    Hey now guys, SLAV— *kuhum!* TRANSLATORS need rest too! Take it easy with the donations, around 250 a day?

    In all seriousness though, thanks for the chaps! Also, I am still wondering if this story ends up in a harem or not. Kudos to Yu Ilhan for not being an indecisive little bastard.

  8. xtachibana

    no more additional heroines he says, how many have been introduced so far? 5? 3 angels 2 humans? I don’t think I’m missing anyone

    1. James

      Count the minors as well. Soldier girl, the Mom, little girl that wants to become Yumir’s wife, the princess, elven, wolfkin. We got the majors, it’s the minors that are a large group.

  9. Wojciech Miktus

    I’m not going to belive autor when he say “there are no more additional heroines”. If i remember corectly he said that Yu Ilhan is not going to be together with Liera.

  10. GonZ

    Meatbun Delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)

    New girl wants to join Ilhan’s harem?
    Erta: “wait in line!”
    Heliena: “eeh? There’s a line?! No, i mean it doesn’t matter! I’ll definitely get him! No one can resist my charm”
    NaYuna: “nope. Charm is my department. Go back and learn how to properly do make up first!”
