From a foreign couple’s fight, to getting directly messed up in marine city, it was a mess.
If Factoria hadn’t brought the mermaid, they would have sent the salvage and rescue boats much later. It was that hectic.
Then Factoria lost her mind.
“Ah, my factory…”
She looked devastated as she looked over the wrecked military warehouse and containers.
There were many lost materials floating in the endless waves.
Recovery aside, if the same situation is repeated, then the operation may be impossible and the business itself may have to be shut-down.
This however, has nothing to do with me.
So I led the mermaid lady to a hotel.
Originally, as soon as one got off the rescue boat, one had to go through a complicated process, such as identification and such, but now the city is in turmoil, so everything was glanced over.
Afterwards, I called home right away.
I was worried if my new phone number had changed or my memory was wrong, but fortunately it didn’t happen.
There was a different problem however.
Beep beep beep beep…
My parents did not answer the phone at all and instead ended the call instantly. It must have been mistaken for voice phishing by seeing the foreign number.
“This is driving me crazy…”
So I used a different means.
First by texting, ‘I’m the son who left home. Please answer the phone!’ And then called again.
This time it was successful.
“What’s wrong with you? Huhu. Kid who called ‘Mom, mom!’ But now? What ‘mother’? Your tone became sophisticated. Why? Ran out of money did you? What arrogance! Did your parents’ faces just come to mind? If you’re independent, you should have ended it as such. What? Ho Ho! This son of mine who went out from home knows how to joke now. That so-called high school friend of yours reported you went missing. You talk well for the position you were in! When I listened to that friend, you dragged around pretty girls like slaves. And flirting? Are you insane now? When I first heard it, I thought it was about some ugly little son from a different house than ours. Whenever such things happened in the news, I clicked my tongue and was horrified, but it turns out my son was the same. Did you know that I was so surprised that I ate heart medicine that I hadn’t touched for the last 20 years? Sigh…
No matter how hard jobs of heroes have become during these strange times, you should protect what’s right, Kang Hansoo. This mother never raised you like that. Don’t play around with other families’ dear daughters. How upset would they be if their parents knew? What? Do you have permission from their parents? You’re big and independent? Hoo! Can you say that in front of your father? He is talking about the time he got my love, when I was so popular at the university, he sang a shameful bit of his own song to me. Hmm? I told him to do that? Ho Ho! what do you mean? Does your father say that? Honey- hmm? He was just here by my side…
Anyway, don’t sneak around the house until you’ve tidied up and brought your true lady and grandson. If you continue to screw around deluding yourself with a harem, I will commit suicide while you’re watching me. And wait. I will get your dad… Where did he go? Hanging up for now. Let’s talk later. Honey~
I’d like to talk to you about the old times.
My mother’s phone hung up.
I lied down on the couch that was nearby.
“I, I’m tired…”
I couldn’t get home.
Aside from my parents being upset, Alumni A has made a very big misunderstanding because he said something strange.
What do you mean harem?
That doesn’t suit me at all.
What should I do?
“You have a wonderful mother. She’s deeply hurt by her child’s passing in the fantasy world.”
“Closing your eyes does not change the truth-”
I dismissed sarcastic Boris’ summon.
“Well, it’s okay. I can get rid of the misunderstandings anytime.”
Anyways, there is a lot of time ahead.
The final goal is to return to being an ordinary and cultured citizen. I also learned how to hide the most annoying stats from the short lecture from Boris.
I heard the name of the skill, but did not remember it.
Boris said the cause was “I wasn’t qualified to hear the name because I was too weak.”
The guy who was defeated by that ‘weakling’ is saying that? Ah! Should I say woman now?
Influential players are gathering at this maritime city.
Their purpose is to recruit the mermaid.
After dealing with this problem, I had planned to go home. It didn’t seem like it would take that long.
I heard footsteps of people coming this way.
In addition to footsteps, the heart beats and breaths from the tension just before the battle is mixed within.
“It’s been awhile since I’ve been in this type of situation.”
Starting in the 2nd playthrough, I knew what would happen and acted accordingly.
Did I get used to that place?
I didn’t think my opponent would attack first. Or was he ignorant because of earth’s gentlemanliness?
Whatever it is, I could only laugh.
“Sir A Class Hero. There are a lot of people outside.”
The mermaid came out of the shower and gave me a glimpse of her nakedness and told me so.
My face, which was slightly wrinkled, started to relax. But not because of the fantastic cola bottle shape of the mermaid who was the lover of the old prince.
That was due to the race characteristics of the mermaid.
Mermaids instinctively capture the names of males they like. It is the wisdom of life that stupid fish have been able to sustain themselves without extinction.
“I will deal with it. Go back.”
I was misunderstood by my mother because of Alumni A.
But if it is known that I was in a hotel with a naked woman, excuses will not work.
The most frightening development was someone saying that I was responsible for her and forced me to marry this stupid fish.
It was terrible just imagining that alone.
“Please release the captive prisoner.”
A polite voice came from the door of the room.
In fact, it is the last ultimatum.
All the rooms above, below, and to the left and right were seized. I was perfectly surrounded, except for the thick concrete walls.
“Threatening the Sacred Hero…?”
They were not as favorable as the barbarian Fantasia people. Is it because of lack of faith? Or is it…
I calmly closed my eyes and thought.
There are my parents on Earth.
I had to keep in mind the possibility that someone who had a grudge against me would hurt my parents.
It is harder to defend than to attack.
Let’s say, if one shoots with a pistol or stabs a person with a knife, that person is just dead.
If this was Fantasia, they would have already been annihilated.
I would grab hold of everything, teach them who they were messing with, clean up the person who gave out the order and as well as the families and relatives, so that he would not have to repent.
“This is the last warning. Release the prisoner in captivity.”
I opened my eyes to the hurried voice.
The decision was over.
“If you don’t want to see your children and wife die in front of you, screw off.”
“I’ll give you three seconds to think. Three, two…”
Bombs that were set on the door of the room exploded, and those who descended like Tarzan on wires broke through the windows.
It was the special ops with black armor that covered them from head to toe.
They dropped a special smoke bomb into the cabin and then fired their rifles without hesitation.
Fire came from the muzzle that had been loaded beforehand. In a very short time hundreds of bullets were shot at me.
A bullet flew from a building far away and targeted between my brows precisely.
All of those bullets were very fast.
So much that…
The following happened almost simultaneously:
Just before the bullet hit my skin, the sacred white light bursts continuously, covering my body like a shield.
▷ Type: Skill
▷ Name: Divinity
▷ Rating: Z
▶ ZZ: Exercise divine punishment. (0%)
▶ Z: Simply divine.
SSS: Receive warship.
SS: Employ divine reflection
▷ S: Ignore regular attacks.
A: Praise the heavens.
B: Purifies Dark Energy
C: Employ divine defense.
▷ D: Grant blessing.
▷ E: Withstand Dark Energy.
F: Employ divine attacks.
Divinity (Z) ruthlessly activated. Gunshots were regular attacks.
Therefore they got reflected .
I do not know the exact principle of my skill.
Only the fact that the firepower, comparable to the bullet’s kinetic energy, was “reflected” and hit the special ops.
The human body is weak.
Even without nuclear weapons humans die easily.
You don’t need a large rifle with some fancy infrared scope.
A palm-sized pistol and a 10-won bullet are enough.
If there’s hundreds of those?
Bulletproof vests and helmets worn by the special ops were meaningless.
You might get lucky and live if you were shot once or twice, but as soon as they pulled the triggers, dozens of shots were scrambled.
All of that kinetic energy is reflected back.
What will happen?
Hududu, hudududuk… .
Debris that had just been human bounced off in the opposite direction, and some fell out of the broken window.
They’re using some good weapons?
It would have been that way if they were shooting on an ordinary human.
As soon as the bombardment disappeared, a special ops stationed in the corridor carried out the next operation.
“The prisoner is in the shower! Charge…?”
“Confirm if it’s a tranquilizer gun…?”
“Capture! For my country…?”
“Surrender and put your hands up above your head…?”
Special ops that were rushing into the doorway of the cabin, destroyed by the bomb stopped, slurring the end of their words.
The smoke screens are thick, but because they can see with the infrared sensors on their bulletproof hats.
“Hi guys. What country are you from? How about your wife and children? What about your parents? Do you not know that you are living on money earned by killing? ”
I greeted them normally.
“Even if it’s a Hero, how could he?!”
“C, crazy! Shoot!”
They all started shooting, as commandos wanted brutal violence rather than gentlemanly dialogue.
But it did not penetrate my Divinity (Z).
Every time they shot, they died.
Frightened and unable to make a normal judgment, they pulled the triggers and like moths on fire they repeated the death like the friends that left first.
And then only one was left.
“Huhu! Why didn’t you shoot? Will you break the command of your boss?”
“I, I am the commander…”
In response to the survivor’s rebuttal, I was speechless.
“Hmm. So you are the commander. You ignored my warning about killing your wife and children, I thought my dumb friend here would look stupider. Hiya ~ So young to think you would be a handsome man! Your wife and daughter would like you. Ah! Are you perhaps single, and that’s why you ignored my warning?”
“How could you say I’m crazy. You’re being too harsh. I haven’t done anything yet. Not even self-defense, I stayed still.”
The terrified commander walked backwards.
Of course, I did not intend to send him back all fine and dandy.
Dark Energy shoots out from my hand, and wraps the commander’s whole body.
The Dark Energy that infiltrated the Earth man’s body with little resistance, quickly established itself.
“Ho… . ”
I only did it to extract information from him, but there was an unexpected side effect.
▷ Race: Arc Human
▷ Level: 1
▷ Job: Knight (Loyalty → Indomitable ↑)
▷ Skills: Dark Energy (F)
▷ Condition: Chaos, Corruption, Obedience
A Status that hadn’t been in the commander was created. He was level 1 and only had one skill.
Did his job get reinterpreted by the standards of Fantasia?
Whatever it was, it was an interesting result.
“If so… . ”
I gave it some more Dark Energy.
I was thinking of pulling out information from the commander, but I decided to experiment to satisfy my curiosity.
The result came out quickly.
Duc, tuk … .
A pair of black wings emerged from the back of the screaming commander.
Black horns emerged from right above his ear.
The commander’s modern battle gear broke the mood, but it was an image of the devil.
“Hmm~ this is an interesting result.”
The race of dark knights I trained in the second playthrough was changed to Dark Human, but it was a mixed race.
No matter how Dark Energy was granted, they did not change like this commander.
Is it because he is an Earthling?
▷ Race: Arch-Demon
▷ Level: 1
▷ Job: Noble(Family = grace ↑)
▷ Skills: Dark Energy (S)
▷ Condition: Joy, Loyalty
His race has turned into demons. It was not an ordinary demon, but a stronger demon lineage called a superior species from birth.
It was an interesting find.
“My king. I swear allegiance to you.”
The commander, reborn as a high-level demon, knelt his head down on the ground beneath my feet.
It wasn’t acting to beg for his life, it was loyalty coming from the heart of the demon.
“The hell you mean king… Ah! My Job is now Demon King, so king is king. . hm?”
I was flustered and responded modestly while I unconsciously checked my stats.
What is this thing doing again?
I’m already used to my status changing often, but even then this is unexpected.
▷ Race: Chaos Alien
▷ Level: 999+
▷ Job: Demon King (Hero → Level ↓)
▷ Skills: Divinity (Z) Dark Energy (Z) Blessing (Z) Fabrication (SSS) Discard (SS) …
▷ Condition: Holy Sword, Demon Sword, Saintess, Golem
Where does one apply for AS? (ED/N : AS stand for After Service, it’s something like Customer Service)
If this doesn’t get fixed soon, things will become very difficult.
