Chapter 213: Episode 40 – Hatching (4)
Yoo Jonghyuk’s wrinkles deepened as he stared at the symbolic figure shaped like a doll. “…How are you sending an indirect message without a channel?”
[The constellation ‘Demon-like Judge of Fire’ says it is possible if the symbolic body is in contact with the incarnation.]
Uriel’s symbolic body was the doll on Yoo Jonghyuk’s shoulder. Yoo Jonghyuk gently poked the symbolic figure with a finger.
“Is it okay to do this?”
[The constellation ‘Demon-like Judge of Fire’ says it will be okay as long as it isn’t caught by a dokkaebi.]
“No, I’m not talking about the dokkaebi.”
Uriel initially didn’t understand what he was saying. Yoo Jonghyuk pointed to the side of the doll.
The doll cocked her head and then covered her mouth with both eyes.
[The constellation ‘Demon-like Judge of Fire’ is deeply moved by the heart of the incarnation ‘Yoo Jonghyuk.’]
[The constellation ‘Demon-like Judge of Fire’ says it is a bit painful.]
There were weak sparks around Uriel’s symbolic body. It was because the Demon World was a taboo for her, an archangel. The Demon World was the domain of the demon kings. Uriel was taking an unnatural risk and forced to bear the brunt of her probability being exhausted. Uriel moved to clinging to his arms and Yoo Jonghyuk asked her, “Why are you going so far to look for Kim Dokja?”
[The constellation ‘Demon-like Judge of Fire’ is asking if it isn’t the same for you.]
“There seems to be a misunderstanding. I…”
In fact, the Demon World was originally a place where he would’ve never come. The difficulty here was incomparable to other scenarios of the same rank. It was comforting that this was the 73rd Demon Realm. There were no demon kings and the ruler would be a duke at most. This much was worth a try. Above all, he was much stronger than he was at the same point in his previous regressions.
“I just don’t like people impersonating me. It doesn’t matter if it is Kim Dokja or not.”
[The constellation ‘Demon-like Judge of Fire’ is laughing.]
“There are also many usable items in the Demon World…”
[The constellation ‘Demon-like Judge of Fire’ is laughing loudly.]
“Do it one more time and I will rip apart your body.”
Yoo Jonghyuk turned his head and gazed at the wide horizon. Perhaps that bastard was somewhere in this desolate world. In this silent world, Yoo Jonghyuk finally started moving.
The Syswitz Industrial Complex.
The atmosphere of the duke’s office was much more unusual than usual as Earl Silocke sweated while reporting.
“…Therefore, we plan to control access into and out of the industrial complex while the revolution is ongoing.”
Silocke’s heart sank several times as the face of the Gilobat envoy distorted in front of him. This
person might be Gilobat’s envoy but he wasn’t the one in charge of the delegation.
Explosive Ombros. He was a marquis of the Gilobat Industrial Complex and the most prominent candidate to be the next duke of the 73rd Demon Realm. Silocke gasped for breath as he saw the fire glowing in Ombros’ eyes. He might’ve fled if it hadn’t been for Duke Syswitz standing at the window and looking outside leisurely.
“…That’s why I am asking the Gilobat envoys to stay here for a while.”
“Have you finished speaking?”
“Y-Yep! T-Then I will go…”
Silocke hurriedly opened the office door and ran away. Meanwhile, Ombros took a few deep breaths to control his temper. It was an annoying situation but he couldn’t act as usual. It was because the strongest existence in the 73rd Demon World, Syswitz was behind him.
Duke Syswitz stared out the window for a while before smiling. “That’s what happened.”
“…What am I supposed to do?”
“I’m sorry but you can’t leave. Please stay in the Syswitz Industrial Complex for the time being.”
In the end, Ombros exploded. “…Don’t you know these words can cause diplomatic issues?”
“You’re too sensitive. It is just a protection measure for the envoys of the alliance.”
“Is it because of the revolutionary?”
“Seven executioners and two marquises have died. It has been a long time since this happened.”
The last phase of the Revolutionary Scenario would start when all executioners in the complex died. Strictly speaking, Duke Syswitz was in a crisis right now. Unlike his words, there was no sense of crisis in Duke Syswitz’ expression. Ombros didn’t like this contradiction and complained, “A revolutionary appearing at this time… you must want to save face, Duke Syswitz.”
“Really? I think it is fun. It has been 30 years since a revolutionary emerged in Syswitz. Sometimes this event is needed.”
“You are speaking like the constellations.”
“Why not? The story isn’t only related to the constellations.”
Ombros would’ve scoffed if a normal incarnation had said this. However, Duke Syswitz was qualified to say such things. He wasn’t comparable to the ‘upper-grade constellation’s but Syswitz was a monster who had ruled the 73rd Demon Realm for 400 years.
“It is good to have as many stories as possible before the beginning of the demon king competition.
The more powerful the revolutionary that appeared, the better it is for me.”
He never even thought about being hit by the revolution.
“Why are you so confident that you can stop the revolution?” Ombros asked.
“Why do you think?”
Ombros’ eyes sank at the question. Maybe it was an obvious story. Syswitz had lost two marquises in this incident.
“I hope you won’t betray Gilobat.”
“Haha, who said that?”
“I’m telling you this personally.”
“I will also give you a piece of advice. Do you think that Duke Gilobat can become the demon king?”
Ombros was a bit upset by the words. Syswitz didn’t give him time to think.
“Or do you think Melledon and Bercan can become the new demon king?”
“…I can’t answer this question.”
“No, you can answer it. It is because everyone knows who is the strongest of the four dukes in the 73rd Demon Realm.”
Ombros gulped. This calm declaration could sound so scary. Once again, the oldest duke of the 73rd Demon Realm couldn’t be ignored.
“It won’t be easy. Melledon has joined hands with Vedas.”
“He isn’t the only one who can borrow the power of the constellations.”
Duke Syswitz stared at the sky outside the window instead of answering.
“The dokkaebis will come soon. Then what will happen next?”
Now the night sky was completely dark. However, soon there would be many stars in the night sky. Then the other demon kings would show up as a response to the emergence of the constellations.
Marquis Ombros felt a heart-shaking sensation.
Finally, the 73rd Demon Realm would become a battleground for a proper scenario.
“…Is there a channel liaison yet?”
“I put in a request to the bureau.”
At this moment, Ombros realized why Syswitz didn’t look for support. Once the dokkaebis appeared and the full-fledged scenarios began, the constellations would gather towards the bigger events. Suddenly, some thoughts ran through his head.
“It wouldn’t be bad for there to be a small entertainment before the full-fledged Demon King competition begins. The constellations love slaughter.”
“Is that why you are leaving the revolution alone?”
Syswitz stared at the smoke with a strange smile. Ombros sighed bitterly. “…You were born evil.”
Every conflict in this world was a commodity. Now Syswitz was selling the lives of the many civilians in the industrial complex to seek the attention of the constellations.
“Thank you for the compliment.”
Ombros shook his head like he was tired. If he planned this production then Duke Syswitz would surely be preparing for a greater blow. It wasn’t difficult to predict what would happen in the industrial complex.
“I can see movement in the Factory.”
The most powerful story weapon possessed by the dukes, the Factory. Duke Syswitz nodded. “I have already prepared it so you will see sooner or later.”
Anticipation filled Ombros’ eyes. The most powerful person in the 73rd Demon Realm. It wasn’t a common opportunity to see him in action. Then…
[The #BI-90594 channel has been created in the ‘Syswitz Industrial Complex’ area.]
Ombros heard the message and stood up with amazement.
“Did you call the dokkaebis already?”
Once he saw the expression on Duke Syswitz’ face, Ombros realized this wasn’t part of the plan.
The door of the office opened and somebody ran in.
“Duke!” I’m sorry but I have an urgent report—”
It was Earl Silocke who previously fled from this place. Syswitz quickly managed his facial expression and replied, “Tell me.”
His report was probably related to the emergence of the new channel. However, unexpected words emerged from Silocke’s mouth.
“The Factory isn’t operating hard enough.”
Duke Syswitz made an embarrassed expression.
“…What does that mean? Didn’t I tell you to replenish it?”
“T-That… it looks like all the civilians who came to work have stolen the story fragments.”
Ombros noticed how things were progressing and said, “It seems this revolutionary is using his head. Perhaps the dokkaebis moved first because of him…”
“That is impossible. The negotiations with the bureau haven’t ended yet.”
Duke Syswitz frowned at the unexpected situation and immediately gave instructions. “Send the supervisors and slaves to the horizon. Have them collect more story fragments.”
“I have already sent them. By the way…”
Duke Syswitz hadn’t realized that the report wasn’t over. Earl Silocke’s shoulders hunched over like he was afraid of how the duke would react.
“Just… I lost contact with the supervisor who went out to collect the story fragments.”
The horizon near the Syswitz Industrial Complex. Jang Hayoung kicked the body of the dead supervisor and said, “It seems that the duke has been preparing for quite a while. Ordering a collection of this scale…”
It was an extra large collection with thousands of slaves mobilized. The situation was resolved but it would’ve been dangerous if we had been a bit later. It was impossible to launch a full-scale war against the Factory when my incarnation body wasn’t yet intact. Things would’ve become worst if these story fragments entered the Factory.
“You are good.” I glanced at Han Myungoh beside me.
He knew the duke would move in this way. If Han Myungoh hadn’t been the spy, I wouldn’t have guessed the exact timing to put the plan into action. Han Myungoh was elated by my praise and laughed.
“Hum, who am I? Aren’t I the ‘Brain of Mino Soft?”
“You can use that as a modifier if you ever become a constellation.”
I smiled at Han Myungoh. At first, I didn’t like being on the same side as this person. Now I thought it wasn’t a bad choice.
“Bring the slaves over here! I will start repairing those who are still sane first.”
Now that I had decided to wage war properly, I could feel something different from Aileen and the citizens. I watched them and controlled my heart. The baby dokkaebi who looked like cotton candy sat on my shoulder and cried out. “Baat!”
Her memories hadn’t been recovered but every dokkaebi had the instincts of a streamer. They filled in the scenarios where there should be a story.
[A new sub scenario has arrived!]
[The Sub Scenario―’Liberate the Slaves’ has started!]
I lightly stroked her head and Biyoo shouted, “Daat!”Read latest Chapters at WuxiaWorld.Site Only
It might not be possible for me to enter the main scenario but I could receive a sub scenario whenever there was an opportunity. It might be a temporary measure but if I kept building up sub scenarios, I would be able to recover enough to face the duke.
「 Kim Dokja thought: There is nothing urgent. Time is still on my side. I now need to thoroughly prepare to safely pass the Demon World’s scenario. 」
I sincerely thought this. At least, until I heard an unexpected message.
[A new constellation has entered the #BI-90594 channel.]
