The Novel's Extra - chapter-262
[3 years ago, Akatrina]
Shin Jonghak woke up inside a forest. The leaves shook amidst the cold,
blowing wind. Only the sound of nature entered his ears.
Shin Jonghak shot up after staring at the leaves blankly.
The forest was full of things he’d never seen before. The trees looked
different than the ones he’d seen on Earth. Before he could even wonder
where he was, hunger struck him.
‘Let’s find something to eat first.’
With that in mind, Shin Jonghak began to quest for survival. He tasted
different leaves, looked for edible roots, and pondered whether his body
could combat clearly poisonous mushrooms.
After wandering in the forest for about an hour…
He found a leather bag on the ground.
‘I heard leather can be cooked and eaten…. Wait, is that what I think
A sudden thought crossed his mind, and Shin Jonghak quickly ran up to the
After examining the bag closely, he became certain that this was the
‘food bag’ that Kim Hajin brought. It was imbued with [High-grade
Space Expansion], [High-grade Freshness Preservation], and [Weight
Shin Jonghak swallowed hard and checked the contents of the bag. Then, he
The bag was practically a moving food warehouse. There was enough food in
the bag to last him a year.
“Hm, I guess he’s useful after all.”

Shin Jonghak took out a strip of beef jerky from the bag. Nom, nom. As he
filled his stomach, he began to look for his comrades.
But he couldn’t find anyone no matter how hard he looked, and night
soon set in. Without any other choice, he started a campfire to have a
proper meal by himself. It was then.
Uninvited guests arrived. A group of eight people carrying baskets and
spears. They looked weak even at a glance and were clearly starving.
“I will kill you if you do not answer.”
Shin Jonghak raised his spear.
“Ah, u-um, sorry, we made a huge mistake….”
They introduced themselves as hunter-gatherers. According to them, many
citizens had died from the prolonged war between Schupert and the Royal
Palace, and those who survived were runaways who formed groups of their
Shin Jonghak had no clue what they meant, but he had to admit that he was
sent to another world.
“Then lead me there.”
Curious, Shin Jonghak visited the hunter-gatherers’ base. Just like
their name suggested, they lived day-to-day by looking for food, often
starving on days they couldn’t find any.
Shin Jonghak offered them food.
However, thugs who smelled the food came to him.
“…Where did you lot get that food?”
Three armored knights appeared from the darkness. The hunter-gatherers
trembled in fear.
“Offer it to Count Schupert if you want to keep your life.”
The knights were arrogant and forceful. Shin Jonghak sneered and pierced
their hearts with his spear. The three knights were killed in the blink
of an eye.
When the battle ended, the hunter-gatherers suddenly bowed to Shin
Jonghak. Shin Jonghak liked the feeling of being treated like a king.
“P-Please accept us….”
The hunter-gatherers’ chief cried and pleaded. Since Shin Jonghak
needed men to look for his comrades, he decided to take in these
…Just like that, a month went by.
Shin Jonghak found a farmable plot of land and made the hunter-gatherers
sow seeds. He picked 30 men and women with talent for martial arts and
taught them the way of the spear.
Because the atmosphere had ample mana, they grew quickly.
…Just like that, half a year went by.
They ran out of food. Their small farms weren’t enough to feed 500
mouths. Shin Jonghak had no choice but to form the Vigilante to steal
supplies from Schupert’s territory.
…Just like that, a year went by.
Shin Jonghak had become the full-fledged leader of the Vigilante. His
hair reached his shoulders, and he trimmed his goatee to look cool.
The members of the Vigilante also grew stronger by the day. Hard-working
disciples learned many things from their good master, and they became
powerful enough to be called ‘knights’.
…Just like that, two years went by.
While protecting the hunter-gatherers from monsters, stealing supplies
from Schupert’s territory, and fighting the Count’s knights, Shin
Jonghak came to a big realization. His black-flame spear had become
capable of scorching the enemy’s magic power as well.
Shin Jonghak gave his newly evolved Gift a cool name, ‘Magic
Devourer’. But that only increased his desire to go back to Earth, and
his hatred for the ones who placed him in this world grew.
…And three years later, in the present.
Shin Jonghak finally found the person he’d been looking for.
He was cornered by Schupert’s knight, Raylen, but Raylen didn’t enter
Shin Jonghak’s eyes.
“I waited three years.”
He pointed his spear at Kim Hajin’s back. Kwaaaa… Black flames shot
up from his spear intensely.
“What happened and where…”
During the past three years, Shin Jonghak killed thousands of monsters
and defeated hundreds of knights. He fought as often as he ate, and
survival was the only thing on his mind. In this unknown world, he even
had to take care of 500 lives. As even the slightest carelessness could
mean death, he had to be on guard at every second.
“What have you been doing for the past three years…”
Under the heavy weight of responsibility and life-or-death situations,
Shin Jonghak reached a never-before-seen realm.
“You better explain properly if you don’t want to die.”
As the Spear God who surpassed all limits, Shin Jonghak emitted a
boundless magic power and an overwhelming presence.
I became speechless. I was surprised by Shin Jonghak’s sudden growth,
but his killing intent was what surprised me more. It seemed like it was
stabbing my heart.
“He’s tough to deal with. Retreat.”
Even Raylen, who introduced himself as a Sword Master, put on a troubled
face. Then, he retreated as soon as Shin Jonghak made his move. None of
his knights uttered a word of complaint.
Jin Sahyuk poked my side.
“Oi, what’s up with him?”
“…Looks like he’s been here for three years.”
“Yeah, it happens occasionally. He’s been trapped in time alone.”
When Raylen and his knights disappeared, Shin Jonghak and the Vigilante
members quickly moved. They surrounded us in the blink of an eye.
Shin Jonghak came up to me, glaring at me. He seemed to have aged by at
least 6~7 years.
“Explain, Kim Hajin. I might kill you depending on your answer.”
He was genuinely enraged. Because the presence he was giving off was
completely different than the old Shin Jonghak I knew, tension enveloped
“…I will. We’ve been looking for you too, kuhum.”
I cleared my throat and pointed at Jin Sahyuk.
“First, it’s all because of her.”
…1 hour later.
I finished explaining everything to Shin Jonghak. He became furious when
he heard what happened, and he charged at Jin Sahyuk.
To my surprise, they fought on equal footing. In fact, Shin Jonghak
overwhelmed her initially. It was yet again a matter of suitability.
Shin Jonghak’s black flames burned up Jin Sahyuk’s magic power, and
Jin Sahyuk was put at a disadvantage without her [Magic Weapon Emission].
Watching their fight, goosebumps shot up on my body. I never expected
Shin Jonghak to fight evenly with Jin Sahyuk. Since he even pushed close
to victory at first, my shock couldn’t be described with words.
Of course, if the fight prolonged, Jin Sahyuk would have won with her
cheaty Gift, [Reality Manipulation].
In any case, after a conversation of fists, we returned to Shin
“The crystal you talked about is in the town.”
Shin Jonghak had a crystal shard inside the town. But I was more
surprised with the town than the crystal shard. It had fences, guards,
watchtowers, and most things that a town needed.
“…You built all this on your own?”
Jin Sahyuk asked Shin Jonghak. With their fight, she had acknowledged
Shin Jonghak’s strength.
“Everyone helped. Though, of course, I did 70% of the work. 673 people
live here now.”
Shin Jonghak explained proudly. But soon, he looked back at me with a
“But this place is really just a materialized fake world?”
Shin Jonghak didn’t say much, but he couldn’t hide his bitterness.
“Anyways, take it. You can go back if you have six, right?”
Shin Jonghak handed the shard over.
[Continental Fragment Piece]
—A crystal that maintains the Recorded Past.
—Supplies mana for growth.
As expected, each crystal shard had its own function. This was what
helped Shin Jonghak grow so quickly.
Now, I had two.
“Bring your townsmen to the capital. It’s a much better place now.”
Shin Jonghak seemed reluctant. It was the same for the Vigilante members
standing next to him. They were clearly unhappy with having us here.
“Staying here is dangerous. Monsters will arrive soon.”
Jin Sahyuk tried to persuade Shin Jonghak, but he only scoffed at her,
asking how she knew that. Jin Sahyuk scoffed back and explained.
“This is the world I lived in. I know better than anyone else what will
happen in the future.”
Shin Jonghak stared at Jin Sahyuk fixedly, then turned his head towards
“Kim Hajin, what is this crazy bitch blabbering on about?”
…The second fight between Shin Jonghak and Jin Sahyuk started.
[Pandemonium, Chameleon Troupe’s Base]
When news broke that Fenrir was captured, Boss wanted to head out
immediately to rescue him. That day, she lost her cool. She couldn’t
see what was in front of her and couldn’t hear what anyone said.
However, Spartan was there to stop Boss. Spartan let Boss know that Kim
Hajin was safe, and knowing that Kim Hajin and Spartan were connected,
Boss had no choice but to believe him.
“…I’ll say it once again, if anything happens to Kim Hajin,
From that day, Boss always had Spartan by her side. She wanted to know if
anything happened to Kim Hajin as soon as possible.
Spartan shook his beak sorrowfully.
“…I’m kidding. Well, half-kidding.”
Boss smiled and held Spartan in her arms.
“So, Boss, what are we going to do~? We kidnapped her parents too.”
Jain asked. She was staring at Boss from the couch.
Boss replied briefly, “First, let the three of them talk.”
“Un~ Okay, but there’s something else you should know before that~”
Jain’s expression stiffened frighteningly.
“There’s a rumor going around that ‘Bell’ joined the Orden
Boss’ shoulders froze. Just hearing his name filled her with rage.
However, she constantly told herself to cool her head. All for a more
“Also… about the Kwang-Oh Incident. We found out who was behind it.
You’ve heard of Kim Sukho, right? He’s the former president.”
Boss nodded. Kim Sukho, the former president of Korea and the man who
seized authority of the Association.
“We have a lot of work to do~”
Jain snickered and stretched.
“Mmm~ Oh right, Boss, we decided to include Droon in this mission.”
Boss furrowed her brows.
“We don’t have a choice, we need his power for this mission. Think of
all the powerful people joining the Orden Assassination Mission.”
Jain used Droon’s information network to find out that humans decided
to deploy their second team around the time that the Djinns’ team was
Yoo Jinwoong, Chae Joochul, Yun Seung-Ah, Vast Expanse, Yoo Sihyuk,
Temple of Justice, Wicked, Destruction, Evil Society, Satan’s Servants,
Pandemonium… Famous Heroes and Djinns from all around, as well as Kim
Hajin’s friends Chae Nayun and Rachel, were all participating in this
“Also, that child is probably coming out of the Tower of Wish soon~ As
soon as he finds out what happened, he’s going to participate for
Kim Suho, the man of interest.
This assassination mission would be a ferocious battlefield with all
sorts of characters. No one knew for certain what would happen there.
“Well, I’m sure none of them will stand a chance against Droon~”
Jain smiled as she thought about Droon. He had entered puberty and
refused to talk with them recently, but he was showing interest in Yi
Yuri who was around his age.
“…But Jain, Droon is too dangerous.”
“No, Boss~ Dangerous versus dangerous, crazy versus crazy. That’s the
Droon. The Gift he possessed rivaled the level of an Authority. The
ability to summon and tame ‘aliens’ who wandered in the chaos of the
Droon’s rabbit, Mimyo, was immune to Aileen’s Spirit Speech, and was
an ultimate weapon that could even devour a devil.
Boss nodded silently. She suddenly recalled a painful memory from the
past. The day Kim Hajin was killed by Kurukuru. Thinking about that day
made her dizzy.
As Jain said, it seemed they needed to borrow Droon’s power to combat
the Monster King and his servants.
Shin Jonghak and the Vigilante entered the capital. I thought Prihi and
her knights would oppose the idea, but to my surprise, they welcomed it.
It was because the Vigilante only bothered Schupert over the years.
In any case, the sun had set, and it was now late into the night. I
yawned while laying in my bed.
“Now I just need to collect four more.”
Since I had two on me and knew where one of the others was, I should be
able to gather them all in 2~3 months. Even then, only 2~3 weeks should
have passed in the real world.
“…I wonder what Boss is doing.”
I suddenly thought about Boss, though I didn’t know why.
At that moment, someone knocked on my door.
Before I could ask who it was, the door opened. Jin Sahyuk was standing
beyond the door. She approached me in her pajamas.
“I can’t sleep so I came to find you.”
Jin Sahyuk said something that didn’t quite make sense while staring at
me with a serious expression.
“You can’t sleep? What does that have to do with me?”
“…Today, you asked me who I was looking for in this world.”
I nodded. I did ask that earlier in the day.
“Yeah, so what?”
“There’s something I wanted to ask you about that.”
“…At this hour?”
I furrowed my brows. Kind what?
But Jin Sahyuk’s serious and somewhat sad expression made me serious as
“…That’s the name of the person I’m looking for. Have you heard
of him before?”
It wasn’t a name I knew.
A kind spring and winter?
I was about to reply, ‘He’s a kind person,’ when a thought suddenly
crossed my mind.
Spring and Winter.
It was surely only a wordplay, but my thoughts stopped when I realized
this possibility. It felt like I was hit in the back of my head with a
I swallowed hard and muttered the name again.
Could it be? No, why would Kim Chundong’s name suddenly pop up here?
“Right, that’s who I’m looking for. It’s been a long time, so
long that I don’t even remember the face of my servant.”
Jin Sahyuk looked at me with a bitter face. I slowly got up from the bed.
I needed some time to think about this on my own.
“I don’t know who that is….”
“I already found him. The royal library has portraits of every
Jin Sahyuk stared at my face as though she was trying to find someone
else in it.
I remembered what Kim Chundong told me when we met in the Tower of Wish.
—We will meet again. But let me ask you for a favor before then…
Jin Sahyuk’s gaze stayed on my face. Soon, she spoke.
“Kindspring… looked just like you.”
I didn’t say anything. I was at a loss for words.
“Oi, Kim Hajin.”
Jin Sahyuk spoke, just like how she did usually.
“Don’t you have something you want to say? You… son of a bitch.”
At that moment, something popped up in front of me.
It was a ‘remake notice’ created by a change in the story’s setting.
