The Novel's Extra - chapter-260
The gun barrel flashed, spears and swords made of magic power fell from
the sky, and magic arrows rained down. Lightning caused by words stormed,
and the knights’ crescent blades of magic power shot out.
…That pretty much described the entire fight.
There were at least ten thousand monsters on the opposing side. But we
all had confidence fighting few versus many. The four of us, with the
help of the 300 or so knights, easily annihilated the entire army of
monsters. The knights who were alive at this point were all veterans of
After the fight was over, I sighed and put away my gun. I had used up
3000 bullets today, and even Aileen and Jin Sahyuk, who were well-known
magic power monsters, seemed exhausted.
The rough breathing of knights was the only sound ringing out.
When I turned around, a pair of huge eyes were staring at us. Looking at
the young Jin Sahyuk’s eyes full of admiration, I wondered how such a
cute kid could turn out the way she did. Things didn’t quite make sense.
“Hey, hey, hey, hey.” At that moment, Aileen called me. “I fought
since we didn’t have much of a choice, but now that it’s over, do you
know where the heck we are?”
“Right, this doesn’t seem like Earth… Is this another one of
Orden’s traps?” Jin Seyeon added.
It seemed they didn’t understand the situation they were in. I
couldn’t blame them since it was hard for anyone to think they were
sent to another world.
“No, it’s not a trap. It’s a bit complicated, but… just pretend
like we’re in another world. You know, like an isekai novel.”
“Isekai? The heck is that?”
“I’ll tell you in detail later. Anyways, how did you two get
Hearing this, Aileen pouted, “I don’t know. I fainted and I was
shackled when I woke up.”
“Oh, then what about those monsters?”
“I don’t know, they just kept chasing us.”
“Huh? Why would they….”
At that moment, I found something in Aileen’s hair. It was shining so
it was quite noticeable with my eyes.
Examining it more closely, I realized that it was a tiny crystal
fragment. I quickly took it from Aileen’s hair.
[Continental Fragment Piece]
—Crystal that maintains the Recorded Past.
—Emits an odor that attracts monsters.
“Huh? What’s that?”
“It looks like this crystal is what attracted monsters to you.”
I ended up finding a crystal without much effort. Since the settings
change window said there were six crystal pieces, I only needed to find
“Anyways, Fenrir-ssi, can you explain this to the guys behind us?”
Jin Seyeon pointed at the men behind me, a total of 600 knights and
soldiers who were staring at us with respect and admiration.
“Ah… Haha, these two are our priests as well. As I said before, we
possess rather special divine powers.”
They didn’t say anything in response to my explanation. They all seemed
to be in disbelief. I quickly changed the topic.
“They brought livestock to give to Plerion.”
They immediately reacted. Livestock = food. As soon as that realization
struck them, gluttony rose up in their tired eyes.
“Is that what I think it is?”
“Is it true?”
Just as I was about to answer them, a small hand reached out and grabbed
It was Prihi.
“Is, is it true that you brought livestock?”
Prihi’s eyes were shaking with hope and expectation. I was a bit
touched seeing her pull on my sleeve with anticipation.
I bent down a little and nodded.
“Yes, of course. First, let’s return to the palace.”
We went to the Royal Palace. Then, I told the others about the situation
we were in.
“So we have to collect all the crystal fragments before we can go
“And we’re here because of this idiot?”
Aileen pointed at Jin Sahyuk.
“Idiot? What did you just call me?”
Jin Sahyuk frowned at Aileen’s coarse words. But Aileen was someone who
wouldn’t flinch even if Chae Joochul came to see her. She glared at Jin
Sahyuk even more strongly.
“That’s right, crazy idiot.”
“Ha, say that again, you little dwar—”
Jin Sahyuk’s mouth was forcibly closed. Unable to say what she wanted,
Jin Sahyuk shot up and pointed her finger at Aileen. Rather, she was
gesturing about how Aileen’s height was ‘only this much’.
“Stay still, crazy.”
But when Aileen unleashed her magic power seriously, even her actions
were sealed. Of course, Jin Sahyuk wasn’t the type to go down without a
fight. She unleashed her magic power and tried to overrule the
restrictions placed on her body.
“Geez, just stay put, will you?”
But I stopped her.
Jin Sahyuk stopped and stared at me fixedly. Her eyes were filled with
sadness and indignation. What did she want me to do about it?
Jin Sahyuk sighed at my cold response and ran outside.
“…Oh right, what do we do about the livestock? I don’t have any on
me.” Aileen spoke.
“Oh that? Don’t worry, I can make them now.”
The Recorded Past was a world materialized by the power of a Tower
Crystal. Although its laws followed that of the real world, the Tower
Crystal could be used as an omnipotent, law-defying force to alter it.
And in my hand was precisely a piece of that Tower Crystal.
“You’re going to make a chicken? Are you mad?”
“Lady Aileen is right. Creating life is impossible, and even trying to
do so is forbidden.”
Aileen and Jin Seyeon objected. I simply smiled.
“I told you, this place isn’t like the real world.”
I infused Stigma’s magic power into the crystal fragment. Because it
was too small, with a single streak of Stigma, I could only make a single
When a chicken suddenly appeared out of nowhere, Aileen and Jin Seyeon
jumped in surprise.
“This is the power of the Tower Crystal.”
“Wow, that’s interesting. Can I do it too?”
Curious, Aileen reached out to the crystal fragment. However, I didn’t
let her have it.
“Don’t be stingy. Give it here, it was mine to begin with.”
“Aileen-ssi can’t do it. I’m the only one who can.”
Aileen could likely alter the landscape or the like with a little bit of
practice. But creating life was a little different. The crystal was the
origin power forming this world, and Stigma’s magic power was something
that could become anything, a divine power, so to say. I could create
life only by combining these two together.
“…You wouldn’t understand even if I explained. You know that I was
rank 1 in theory in the world, right? You have to do many calculations in
your head to make it happen.”
I gave a believable excuse. Or rather, it was one that no one could
“…Wow, you’re so amazing~ what a smarty pants~”
“Don’t be sarcastic, Lady Aileen.”
Jin Seyeon’s sudden seriousness made Aileen frown.
“Who are you to say whether I can be sarcastic or not?”
“He saved our lives.”
I then used the tower fragment to create a pig, a male chicken, and a
female chicken. I felt a bit dazed after using all 5 streaks of Stigma,
but [Medicinal Memory Physique]’s powerful painkiller made me feel a
I sighed off the light pain that remained and examined the livestock.
—A fat pig. It seems tasty.
—A female chicken that lays many eggs.
—A male chicken that mates well.
Thankfully, nothing was wrong with them.
“Now let’s see….”
I took out the [Random Dice].
Restoring Plerion’s capital was the second goal. I rolled the dice
while thinking about items that could help their food situation.
As we weren’t in the Tower of Wish, I didn’t get any fantasy-like
items. But the ones I did get were more than enough to help Plerion’s
“You sure have a lot of strange skills.” Aileen murmured in
“Let’s go give these out.”
I peered past the door. After hearing that we were preparing to offer
livestock to the king, countless knights were waiting eagerly outside the
I grabbed one chicken, and Jin Seyeon and Aileen grabbed the pig and the
The moment we opened the door, knights who were waiting outside
approached us. When they saw what was in our hands, they all had
“M-My god! Chickens! There are chickens!”
“T-There’s a pig too.”
“H-How did you get all these?”
Their passionate reaction startled Aileen. She walked up to me and
whispered, “Why are these guys so happy?”
I explained quietly, “Because of the Demon Realm Transformation, most
of this world’s food supply became undead, and the ones that haven’t
been affected were stolen by Schupert.”
When livestock stepped on demonized soil, it transformed them into an
undead. The same went for plants. A perfectly fine rice plant would
suddenly turn into a man-eating monster.
“Ah… I see, so that’s why the palace was so shabby.”
We gave the livestock to the knights.
“You can eat the pig today. As for the chickens, set up a farm to
“Haha, of course, of course! First, we’ll have to report to the
The knights laughed happily and led us away. Prihi wasn’t far away. It
seemed she wanted to see the livestock as soon as possible.
“…Ooh! A pig! Chickens! There’s a male and a female!”
The young ruler jumped up and down in excitement. A few knights smiled
and some even let out tears of joy.
“Your Highness, we won’t have to worry about food anymore!”
“It will only be a matter of time until these two chickens turn into
hundreds, then thousands…!”
We watched them celebrate. The King soon approached us and expressed her
“Thank you. I don’t know how I can repay you.”
“Haha… There are still more things for you to be grateful for.”
I gave her the rice, wheat, corn, and potato. Prihi’s eyes widened.
“They’re seeds. Move your subjects to a share house and use the
remaining space to plant these seeds.”
Prihi stared at the seed blankly. She then took the seeds in a daze. She
glanced at me for a moment, then quickly ran off.
Pa, pa, pa—
Not long afterwards, she reappeared with a magnifying glass in her hand.
[Mysterious Magnifying Glass] [Pinnacle-grade Magic Artifact]
—Uses magic power to identify the target’s weaknesses.
—Uses magic power to identify the target’s feelings towards you.
*When the user’s magic power is low, the identified weaknesses and
emotions may be inaccurate.
Mysterious Magnifying Glass. It was one of the four rewards obtainable
from the Akatrina Episode: Mysterious Magnifying Glass, Omnipotent Magic
Pen, Purifying Crystal, and ???.
“It is one of my prized possessions. This magnifying glass can identify
a target’s emotions. Since you’re from the Temple, I’m sure you can
make better use of it than me.”
“Ah, thank you.”
I took it with gratitude. It was naturally one of the things I wanted to
“Huhu, as I thought, a valuable item is recognized by a valuable
Prihi didn’t hide her happiness seeing that I liked her present.
Yoo Yeonha stared at the woman in front of her.
‘Macho’ was the word she would use to describe her. Her hair was wild
like the mane of a lion, and there was a deep wound slashed across her
collarbone. Together with the longsword and black cape on her back, she
looked too different than the last time she’d seen her.
“…Nayun, what happened in the past few months…?”
Seeing the suddenly matured Chae Nayun, Yoo Yeonha was slightly taken
aback. Chae Nayun replied with the same voice she always had.
“Nevermind that, I heard that Kim Hajin was kidnapped.”
“No, Orden’s just bluffing.”
“I plan on marching over and smashing everything into… huh?”
Chae Nayun’s eyes widened.
“Really? How do you know that?”
Yoo Yeonha smiled and took out a watch artifact.
“This magic artifact is synchronized with Kim Hajin’s smartwatch. No
matter where he is or what he is doing, it shows his biological clock.”
This artifact was a solution to prevent another one of Yoo Yeonha’s
huge misunderstandings. It couldn’t spy on Kim Hajin. It only told the
level of danger Kim Hajin was in.
“Look here, you can see his vitality and how nervous or tense he is.
Everything’s normal, so Orden is lying. He’s just trying to scare
“…Then what about the other Heroes?”
“They’re likely to be with Kim Hajin. Lady Aileen wanted to bring Kim
Hajin with her, and their GPS coordinate overlapped for a moment.”
Yoo Yeonha replied in a calm and collected manner. Seeing her like this,
Chae Nayun made a dazed face. The following thought surfaced in her head,
‘Then do I have to go back to the Himalayas…? I came back for nothing
because I’m dumb.’
At that moment, Yoo Yeonha suddenly asked, “…Nayun, I know this might
not be the time to ask this… but are you ready to meet him?”
Chae Nayun smiled at her worrying words, “Of course. It’s about time.
You don’t have to worry.”
Seeing Chae Nayun, Yoo Yeonha made a bitter smile.
What if Chae Nayun and Kim Hajin came together using this opportunity…?
It should be a good thing, but Yoo Yeonha felt her heart ache just
thinking about it.
“…I see, I’m glad.”
Yoo Yeonha was smart and analytical. She knew why she was feeling this
Yoo Yeonha had thought about how Kim Hajin knew her embarrassing secrets.
Ramen and hamburger.
Jjigae and gukbap.
Coke and Sprite.
They were all unique tastes she would never reveal to anyone. But Kim
Hajin knew about them. Given that he was a Returner… Yoo Yeonha could
only guess that they were lovers, or at least as close as lovers.
In that case, what relationship did Kim Hajin have with Chae Nayun before
he returned in time? Was he closer to her than me? Or was he just as
Yoo Yeonha’s thoughts didn’t continue much longer.
A huge spark of light flashed in the sky. Startled, Yoo Yeonha and Chae
Nayun looked out the window.
The flashes continued consecutively. It was much more fierce than usual.
The third flash of light brightened the entire world. This time, the
light lingered for a bit longer, as though another sun was created in the
“Hey, Yeonha, that’s….”
“Yeah, it’s the Tower of Wish.”
Yoo Yeonha and Chae Nayun looked up at the sky and realized that it
wouldn’t be long… until the conclusion of the Tower of Wish.
The King’s post horses set out to find Yi Yongha, Shin Jonghak, and Seo
Youngji. Furthermore, the chicken coop was finished in less than a day.
Prihi went to see the royal court’s now most prized possession – the
chicken coop. She smiled looking at the chickens laying eggs. She spent
many hours sitting in the coop, listening to the chickens’ bawks.
Seeds were planted in farmland guided by Jin Seyeon. Although the plants
grew quickly, many impatient citizens secretly dug out the plants and ate
them, causing a small commotion in the capital.
Magic power and cement reinforced the castle walls.
And now, late at night on the sixth day.
Jin Sahyuk infiltrated the Royal Palace’s secret library just as she
had done in the past few days. It was to remember the face of a servant
she once had.
“It should be somewhere here….”
Over thirty years had passed since then. Although Jin Sahyuk forgot his
appearance under her artificial memory seal and time, she remembered his
name clearly. She knew that the royal library had a record and a portrait
of every knight.
“Year 550, July 3rd….”
She had checked the years 547~549 in the past few days, and now it was
time to go over year 550. As everyone who entered the royal palace even
once was recorded, there were many pages she had to work through.
“Kindspring, Kindspring… aah, fuck.”
‘How the fuck are there 50,000 pages?’ Jin Sahyuk cursed and sighed,
but she continued to flip through the pages. Menial labor was one thing
she hated the most in the world, yet she found it to be of utmost
importance at the moment.
Just like that, one hour, two hours, three hours passed.
Until 4 a.m. when a patrolling knight entered the library, Jin Sahyuk
continued to look through the records.
At that moment, she felt a presence walking through the hallway outside.
A studious knight was making his rounds early.
Then, just as the knight was about to enter the library, Jin Sahyuk
discovered the name of a servant. She felt her heartbeat quicken as she
checked the name.
The first servant of the abandoned princess, ‘Prihi’, Kingspring of
the Winter Clan.
Seeing this name, old memories resurfaced in her mind.
In truth, Kindspring didn’t have a last name because he had a commoner
background. Jin Sahyuk was the one who gave him the name ‘Winter’, as
he was a swordsman who had the ice-attribute…
Jin Sahyuk looked at the portrait of Kindspring.
The servant who swore eternal loyalty to her.
The name that remained in her heart with regret and sadness.
The dear servant that time buried in her mind shot up like an erupting
