Everyone Else is a Returnee – Chapter 296: I Will Achieve – 6

[Such impudence.]

Michael called out a new weapon and grasped onto it tightly. Although its origins were unknown, the spear was made from an ancient metal. Just looking at it was enough for anyone to tell that it was a God-ranked artifact.

[The light that clads you. It is a mere coating that will peel off with a few scratches!]
“That’s an interesting claim.”

But what was more interesting was the God ranked artifact he was holding. It wasn’t like he only had one God-ranked artifact despite being the God’s deputy, and he was also the de-facto leader of the Four Great Archangels… Though, he did have to be cautious about the God ranked artifact’s power…….

“Whoops. Why are you in such a rush…”

A spear of flames and a spear of metal clashed in midair. Like how Michael’s fire didn’t work against Yu IlHan, Yu IlHan’s own fire was not 100% effective against an angel that manipulated fire. As a result, the first clash was a draw…… or so it seemed.

[!?]

Michael was about to step back after exchanging light blows, but he found himself unable to take a step back, leading to a look of confusion. His could not withdraw his spear after the clash.

“What’s wrong?”
[You…….]

From the outside, it looked like they were having a friendly conversation. Michael’s expression stiffened fearfully.

[What did you do?]
“You think I’ll tell you?”

When Yu IlHan pulled his flaming spear towards him, the metallic spear slid to his hands as well. This was not just any Epic or Chaos rank, but a God-ranked one! Michael couldn’t let it be stolen and desperately pulled on it, and as a result, even his body was flung forward. Yu IlHan’s cold and sharp kick hit him squarely on the chest.

[Critical Hit!]

[Kugh!]
[Lord Michael!]

If it was the lower existence Yu IlHan from before, he couldn’t possibly deal any damage to Michael with a light kick, but right now he was a ruler-class being with a level that surpassed 500. With a single kick containing God Force, Michael’s body was pushed across the air, and the God-ranked spear fell into Yu IlHan’s hands.

[Do you think physically taking it away will make it yours?!!]
“Oh, this is a splendid spear. It inflicts the enemy with a wound that cannot be cured, and the wounds caused by this will never stop bleeding…… and the one that is acknowledged as master of this weapon can heal himself by injuring others. Isn’t this quite the vicious weapon for an angel?”

Yu IlHan swung it a few times to read the records from it, and struck it into the Flamesoul Dragon body without hesitation. Was he trying to harm himself?
Michael was shocked at the scene, but became speechless the next moment. The God-ranked artifact was sucked into the armor while giving rise to ripples, as if it was being thrown into a pond.

[Yu, IlHan……?]
“Thanks.”

The next moment, the spear he was holding slightly changed in shape. The spear body became a little longer, and a special insignia was engraved on the blade. Michael immediately realized what this meant. He subconsciously groaned.

[No way…… it’s not true. That cannot possibly happen.]
“Well then. Time to test it out, I guess?”
[Kuoooooooh!]

This time, it was Yu IlHan’s turn. Without having to speak anything, Yumir roared out and flapped his wings,  giving rise to a volley of flames! The moment Yu IlHan ‘wished’ to be in front of the enemy, he appeared in front of the enemy.

“Hi?”
[Kuh……!?]

With firm movements, Yu IlHan lashed out with his spear. Michael proved that he wasn’t God’s deputy for nothing and dodged before Yu IlHan could even reach him, but Yu IlHan’s spear wasn’t just a simple physical attack.

“Heh.”

[The skill, Transcendent Trajectory, has become level 9.]

With numerous techniques fusing into one with the Spear of Untraceable Trajectory and the Great Cosmos-severing Spear as the foundation, it had reborn into a trajectory that surpassed cause and effect, space, and fate. That was why the name was ‘Transcendent Trajectory’.
It was not avoidable by dodging, nor was it defensible by blocking, undetectable by sight, nor could it be heard by listening.

[Critical Hit!]
[Kuu…… Kugh!?]

The moment a line that only the Supreme can make, was drawn, A burst of white blood scattered from Michael’s chest even though he was far away from Yu Ilhan.

Endlessly.

[Don’t tell me, you really copied the artifact…… It was what the LORD gave me!]
[Lord Michael!]

Raphael couldn’t just stay still and used his power on him. The unparalleled ability of healing shrouded Michael. However, Yu IlHan only laughed.

[It’s not stopping. Lord Michael’s blood is…….]
[…… Kugh, obviously. The power of a God ranked artifact cannot be ignored by you, Raphael, or even me.]

Yu IlHan once again rushed towards Michael and swung his spear. Michael knew that it was useless to dodge and he instead summoned another artifact to meet it head on, but the artifact was instantly crushed and another injury appeared on his body. Michael held back his groan, but Raphael couldn’t endure anymore. A spear of wind appeared in his hands.

[Impudent being. How dare you covet the authority of Heaven just because you became a little stronger!]
“Yes, come at me. You won’t be able to recover so easily like last time.”
[Kuooooooooh!]

Yumir cried along with Yu IlHan’s intent. The wind generated from his body made the fire burning on Yu IlHan’s armor stronger. The resonance between the two deepened, and the already gigantic spear became even more threatening.

[Raphael! Do not let your guard down!]
[Lord Michael, please rest! We cannot turn tail in front of the devil when we serve the only LORD!]
[Raphael!]

A devil, eh. It finally came to that. Yu IlHan made a bitter smile while watching Raphael who was flying with the help of wind and with his partially ripped wings. He really looked like a holy angel on God’s orders, making him feel like he really was playing the role of a devil.

However, if he had to acquire the title of devil just because he wanted to become strong in order to survive.

He’ll gladly take it.

[O Father, bless my every steps! Bestow me the power to defeat the devil!]
“Hhp.”

This was no time to think about anything. Yu IlHan gripped onto his spear in order to strike back.

[Hah!]

However, someone appeared behind him just before he clashed with Raphael. It was none other than Keshein, the 1st Battalion Commander of the Destruction Demon Army. However, Yu IlHan only slashed once. Though, in fact, he just didn’t have the time to attack both forward and back.

[Kugh……!]
[Kihigh!]

Raphael clenched his teeth to block it, but Keshein made a smile of victory. It was worth it to come here! Weakening the Heaven’s Army, and he shall become stronger! He felt like he could see the future filled with destruction and bliss.

[Critical Hit!]
[Critical Hit!]

It was a very precise moment, and everyone here knew of Keshein’s strength, so it was no wonder that the higher existences there thought that Yu IlHan’s rampage will finally come to a stop. However, the results betrayed all of their imaginations.

[K, ugh…….]
[Kigh!]

Even though there was only a single strike that swept through the air, there were two wounds. Raphael couldn’t block Yu IlHan’s spear and was shot away while spurting blood from his chest, while Keshein fell down before his claws could reach Yu IlHan’s head as his neck was perforated multiple times before he could reach him. Yu IlHan’s slash and piercing attacks were realized in two different directions at once.

[You have earned experience.]
[You have earned the records of Lv 588 Keshein.]
[You have become level 525. 10 Strength, 5 Agility, 5 Health, 10 Magic increases.]
[The skill, Transcendent Trajectory, has become level 13.]

[Aah, how can-]
“Bye.”

Yu IlHan didn’t even listen to Raphael’s final words and mercilessly struck his spear into his forehead. The spear pierced through his brain and that was it.

[You have earned experience.]
[You have earned the record of Lv 585 Raphael.]
[You have become level 530. 8 Strength, 7 Agility, 5 Health, 5 Magic increases.]
[The skill, Declaration, has become level 19.]

The numerous higher existences residing in that world were momentarily awestruck, they didn’t understand what had happened and just watched on with dumbfounded expressions. However, after Keshein and Raphael’s corpses were sucked into Yu IlHan’s inventory, they finally realized that the two had met their deaths.

“Fuu.”
[Dad, I levelled up a lot again!]
“Well done, Mir.”

The father and son exchanged smiles that didn’t fit in this situation and praised each other, and this scene looked very out-of-place to the onlookers. In fact, it looked very vicious and fearful as well. They felt as if the entire world had been frozen and was broken into pieces.

[Even Keshein and Raphael were……]
[One of the Four Great Archangels…… died?]
[The 1st Battalion Commander of the Destruction Demon Army, was so easily…….]

Yu IlHan raised his head. While everyone retreated a step back in fear, only Michael, who had to witness the death of Raphael right in front of his eyes, despaired.

[Dammit, DAMMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!]
[It’s as if, that being is…….]

Everyone was paying attention to Yu IlHan. However, their gazes were now fundamentally different from how they viewed him before.
Hostility from the angels and wrath from fallen angels, desire from the Destruction Demon Army and pleasure from the Garden of Sunset. The four specific emotions before had now changed to just one.

[We cannot do anything about that being.]
[We need to run. Run!]

It was a sense of admiration and a deep, overwhelming wave of horror.

[Run.]
[Before he closes all the paths from this world.]
[Why is Lord Satan only watching?]
[He is one that will enjoy even this. This is a world that is connected to the Netherworld. He must be enjoying watching whether this transcender will take over or just abandon this world.]
[Retreat. We cannot get in his way.]
[Run.]

The Garden of Sunset and the Army of Brilliant Light were the first to move. The Garden of Sunset didn’t participate in this seriously in the first place, and the Army of Brilliant Light immediately opted to retreat after seeing that Satan didn’t react to this.

[Lord Michael.]
[Lord Michael!]

Michael raised his head a little after that. The angels scattered around the world had all come back and were looking at him. Yu IlHan was just watching him without attacking for some reason, and Michael knew precisely why he did so, which made him more angry.

However, despite that.

[……We will retreat.]
[Yes, sir.]

The angels all started disappearing as if they had waited for that order to come down. Even those fanatics realized the difference in power.
Michael watched as they all returned, and when he was the only one left, he finally raised his head to glare at Yu IlHan. Feeling the boiling mana inside him, Yu IlHan leaked out a laugh.

[The LORD shall punish you for your sins.]
“I’m really curious, but are you going to die if God tells you to?”
[If such is the will of God. And according to the same will, you shall definitely die.]
“And God really said that?”
[…….]

Michael disappeared without giving an answer. Then, the ones left were Yu IlHan, Yumir and the remnants of the Destruction Demon Army forces.

“Why are you guys still here? Wanna fight even though you know you’ll die? Well, I guess that’s your raison d’être.”

It was the next moment that a completely unexpected answer was given to him.

[Our boss wants to meet you!]
[The Fifth! Let us go to Elo Katra together!]
“……What?”

Yu IlHan had just finished off their 1st Battalion Commander Keshein, and a little before that, he had killed and revived Helièna into one of his subordinates. The leader of Destruction Demon Army shouldn’t really like him that much. However, they did some really interesting things.

[He won’t kill you! He won’t fight you either!]
[The greatest service since the creation of the Destruction Demon Army! The boss likes you!]
[He wants to play with you! He wants to play!]

Even though Yu IlHan had just awakened and became a transcender not long ago, the enemy was a super strong being who had surpassed the boundaries of a higher existence and transcended god knows how long ago before he did. If he just followed their invitation blindly like a lost sheep, he didn’t know what sort of situation he would end up in. However, Yu IlHan just laughed and replied.

“Okay, let’s go then!”

Yu IlHan was no idiot. He was thinking about just one thing right now.

-What kind of artifacts are there in Elo Katra?

      Lemme ride you.
      ..
      ..(what was that?)
      ..
      He’s starting to remind me of Ainz and Leylin now. You know, killing everyone and everything to protect his people (Ainz) and doing everything possible to get stronger (Leylin).
      And it’s fun to watch him go.

      Yes it is fun to watch him go. SO WHERE IS THE NEXT CHAPTER? I WANT MOOOAARRR.

      Based on its affects, it seems to be the Lance of Longinus.

      IIRC, in the mythology of the knights of the round table, Sir Galahad once wielded the Lance of Longinus to heal a king who was suffering a wound that could not heal. That wound was also caused by said Lance of Longinus.

        It’s definitely Longinus from the description, though it’s pretty crazy to make an angel have it of all things.

    well Ill Han is going to be a pain to fight if he can wrest any artifact you have to his control, interesting that Satan and the Sunset’s leader wanted his ascension, and now even the leader of the DDA is interested in him, only leader whose stance we dont know is Gods with him being awol, just that HA refuse to acknowledge any “divinity” but God, maybe thats why God has run and hid, heh heh, his followers have gotten too rabid and he doesnt want to deal with them any more.

    Man, remember when that 2nd class panther waaaayyy back when kicked his ass and he barely won? Now he’s killing 7th classes easily left and right.

    On another note, I wonder if the author will show us liera’s reaction to seeing her idol dead? Though I don’t see her being too upset after she finds out what they tried to do.

    Reply
    1. Jonathan

      Well she knew this was inevitable. I mean that was why she didn’t come with him here was because they were sure the angels would try to use her against him. Besides I think I’d be pretty disllusioned with an ‘idol’ who constantly backstabbed yu Ilhan and then declares him evil just cause.

    so….I guess Ilhan is the equivalent of OPM in this universe. Except he only uses blades instead of his fist. Sadly, some day he will reach apex and find that it is truly boring being that strong.

    but for now…it’s all Fun and games until they pop and eye, wing, head, heart etc…

    there is one thing that i find interesting, god Yu Ilhan still talk in “…..”, which until now, was only used by humanoid lower existence, all higher existences always talk in […..]

    does that mean he still hasn’t shed his lower existence shell and can act in lower world?

    It seems the leader of Heavens Army tried to create an organisation that would help the inhabitants of a world survive the levelling up of said world.
    Then he got tired of the hypocrisy of his underlings. A hypocrisy that can be seen in their willingness to doom everyone born after the first cataclysm on Earth for unspecified gains they might get in the future (note the conditional might there). Or the repeated attempts by them to kill Ilhan since they can’t control him.
    So he went on to create the Army of Brilliant light as a counter/attempt 2. Failed again even though het got the Angels that were not as rigid in their arrogance they got just as greedy.
    Sunset was setup for the same reason but this time not starting with the morality that caused the problems with the ascenders that were turned into (Fallen) Angels.
    Can’t tell where the Destruction Army was founded but it seems they were created to remove the perceived rot of both Angel factions.

    And based on this theory Yu Ilhan isn’t the fifth natural ascender but the 2nd. Or maybe the 3rd if his dad is really this guy then there is a chance his mother lied a bit about her status and is the 2nd natural ascender.

      i will say that the factions have been around for a long time, remember when liera said they were around before she was born, so yu Ilhan had nothing to do with it. i will agree that god left due to his angels hypocrisy, but i think similar to how angels defect to the army of brilliant light god was the first defector and became satan. and so, at this point all the leaders are so strong that everything’s boring, a new friend will be sooo fun

    Can that spear deal conceptual damage? For example, assuming Yumir is wounded, can Ilhan cut ‘the fact that Yumir is wounded’, and heal him? Though considering Ilhan’s current control over records, maybe that’s unnecessary.

      He is male. Remember when demons and crows tried to abduct YuNa? (I wish they succeeded, so we don’t have to deal with the annoying YuNa. Albeit she’s not as annoying now). The leader want to abduct her and then grow her since she had the goddess of beauty blessing.
