The Novel's Extra - chapter-306
I hid behind the car and sent a command to Spartan. He quickly appeared
in the sky and looked down at us.
At that moment, another arrow flew towards us, targeting the car’s
tire. Aether tried to protect it, but because the tire wasn’t strong to
begin with, it couldn’t withstand the attack even with Aether’s help.
The tire popped like a balloon as Spartan shared his field of vision with
I could see the enemy about 5km to the east. It wouldn’t be hard to see
him at first through Spartan’s eyes, but his location was made very
clear in the next moment when he shot an arrow at Spartan.
Spartan flapped his wings and dodged the attack, but the arrow quickly
turned and chased after Spartan.
Chwaaaa…. The fiercely flying arrow was quicker than Spartan. At this
rate, Spartan would die as well.
The moment the arrow grazed Spartan’s feathers, I ordered him to
escape. Spartan teleported out just in time, and the arrow pierced
through thin air. But at that moment, an unpleasant system alert popped
[Spartan’s wing has been injured – he is unable to use his Authority.]
I bit my lips. Returning to my normal field of vision, I looked around
the surroundings. We were attacked in the outskirts of the lawless zone.
Although a few pubs and inns were nearby, fights were commonplace here.
Even if I asked someone for help, it was unlikely for any of them to
listen to me.
The only thing protecting me was a sedan enveloped in Aether. I was
running out of time. I doubted that the sedan could withstand the
enemy’s terrifying arrows any more than this.
Without any other choice, I took out [Temujin’s Bow Blessed By Horus]
and [Athena’s Moonlight Arrow]. I didn’t hesitate much. To save Yoo
Yeonha and to save myself, I needed to do this.
The moment I grabbed the arrow, Master Sharpshooter’s senses
heightened. I looked to the east. My vision quickly stretched out until
it reached my target 5km away.
I finally caught a glimpse of the sharpshooter that attacked us.
It was a woman holding a black bow. Her dark eyes seemed to be staring at
No, she was most certainly staring at me. Our eyes exchanged glances from
The enemy pulled her bowstring.
For some reason, I felt like I knew her. Blue hair flowing down over her
black leather armor. Slightly tanned skin and fair facial features… The
sharpshooter looked just like the person I imagined while I was writing.
That should be her name. She was one of the ten devils I thought of using
for the final part of the story – Leraje the Green Devil.
As her title suggested, green was her symbolic color, but the background
story was that she hated green so much that she dyed her green hair blue.
Leraje held more moderate views among the devils, and by the looks of it,
she still seemed to be staying in her incarnation body.
Still, she was the sole archer among devils. She was not an opponent I
could deal with easily.
Why was the 14th ranked devil here?
I was annoyed by the sudden turn of events, but I knew complaining about
it wouldn’t do me any good.
I took a deep breath and nocked [Athena’s Moonlight Arrow] onto my bow.
Then, I poured everything I had into it: Stigma’s magic power, Random
Consolidation System, Constraints and Amplifications.
A terrifying magic power descended on the moonlight arrow, and brilliant
rays of light began to stretch out in all directions. The moonlight’s
holy power enveloped the earth and sky. I aimed the cluster of light at
the devil and pulled the bowstring strongly.
…But due to Leraje’s strange reaction, I didn’t fire the arrow.
She put her bow down and stared at me. Her gaze held no hostility or
killing intent. Her expressionless face only showed her cold beauty.
After staring at me for a long time, Leraje muttered.
A fleeting voice came out of her coy lips. Next, Leraje suddenly put away
her bow and arrows.
I couldn’t understand what brought on the sudden change, but it was
clear she no longer had any desire to attack. As such, I put my bow down
In that instant, Leraje’s form disappeared like a mirage.
I was taken aback.
“Did my arrow scare her away? No, I doubt that’s the case…”
No matter the reason, the current situation was better for me. Not only
did I conserve my strength, but I also didn’t have to risk my life
fighting her to the death.
[A huge luck erupted!]
[A Single Word Pays Back a Debt of a Thousand Gold – Your thoughtless
mumbling saved your life!]
[The great ‘Rank 14 Devil – Leraje’ takes interest in the human who
[Information regarding Leraje has been added to your Gift 「Observation
[You obtain 333SP!]
[Narrow Escape from Death (7/9) – Special stat, Accumulation of Luck,
becomes partly unlocked!]
Narrow Escape from Death popped up once again.
“That was luck too?”
I exclaimed in surprise, then I remembered someone.
I quickly ran to the side of the sedan and opened the door. Yoo Yeonha
was sitting in the corner, her face pale and her body trembling.
The inside of the car looked different than just now. The remnants of
Licros’s corpse were nowhere to be seen, and a hot current of
electricity was crackling inside.
Yoo Yeonha had burned Licros’s blood, flesh, and bones into nothingness.
[North Pandemonium – Undeveloped Area]
In the Russian land north of Pandemonium, a temple no human knew about
Monsters swarmed the area, and the temple was shrouded by tall coniferous
forest. Inside this dark temple, countless Djinns and demons were
gathered to worship the rank 14th devil.
“…She should be fine on her own, right?” The Djinn assigned to this
temple, Destruction, said worryingly. In front of him were many Djinns
and a few demons who were waiting for their lord to return.
“The outside world is dangerous… We know what happened to Plucas.”
Destruction was always interested in the descent of the devil he was
serving. When signs of Demon Realm Transformation appeared, he helped the
descent of the rank 14 devil more carefully than any other Djinn.
Destruction took care so that no one would find out about his lord’s
descent. He knew very well what happened to Rank 50 Devil Plucas, whose
existence was revealed to the world.
“Don’t worry. Lord Leraje is a noble who is among the strongest in
the Demon Realm.”
But the devil’s henchman seemed to be carefree. Corte, the most
human-looking servant among the demons, said with a smile.
“Lord Leraje isn’t someone a mere human can injure.”
And at that moment, Leraje returned to the temple. Her ability allowed
her to change the composition of her body freely. She took the form of
wind and quickly arrived at her throne.
The servants waiting for her all bowed with respect.
But Corte noticed something. Leraje didn’t have the [Dimensional
Entropy] in her hands. That was the object she had left to obtain
At that moment, Corte’s gaze met Leraje’s. Corte flinched, while
Leraje simply gave a command.
Her command wasn’t in the form of words. She projected letters using
Earth’s technology known as a smartwatch.
This was a small constraint placed on Leraje. She had to expend her
lifeforce every time she spoke, so she used this smartwatch given by
Destruction to express her thoughts.
—I didn’t bring the object you talked about.
Corte and Destruction stared at the words appearing in the air.
—There was a mysterious human who knew my name.
With that, Leraje leaned against her throne. Her youthful look and soft
figure shone seductively.
Corte was displeased. [Dimensional Entropy] was an important item in the
descent of a devil, yet Leraje had given up because she took interest in
a mere human.
“Lord, you are a nobleman renowned across the Demon Realm. It isn’t
strange for tales of Lord’s strength to have spread to Earth. So how
can it be strange for—”
Leraje furrowed her brows and cut him off.
—Humans don’t know me. This isn’t the Demon Realm.
Tadadak— Leraje typed on the holographic keyboard as she looked around
—He even knew my name.
“…Is that so?”
—Of course, I don’t lie.
Next, Leraje yawned. As her descent wasn’t fully complete, Leraje slept
—Wake me up if those old devils contact us.
—Look into the human who recognized me too.
—He really was quite interesting.
With four final messages, Leraje fell asleep.
Corte stared at Leraje’s sleeping figure and then faced Destruction
next to him.
“…Look into this human Lord Leraje has taken interest in. You’ll
also have to bring back the [Dimensional Entropy].”
Destruction widened his eyes in surprise, then put on a deep smile. This
was exactly what he wanted to do.
From what he recently learned, the human who took the [Dimensional
Entropy] was none other than the daughter of Yoo Jinwoong.
“Understood, leave it to me.”
Destruction replied and laughed happily.
I threw the car away. It could be repaired, but it was already too
tattered, and in its current state, it was at a huge risk of being
I summoned Sannuri, who I turned into a card, and ran with Yoo Yeonha.
Sannuri was burdened by the [Dimensional Entropy] I was carrying, but she
was still as quick as ever.

As Sannuri sped forward, I checked Yoo Yeonha’s condition. She was
trembling sporadically, her body was freezing, and her breathing was
labored. Like a bird drenched in rain, her frail body was devoid of
Yoo Yeonha needed time to rest.
I saw a natural cave surrounded by greenery with my Thousand-Mile Eyes,
and I led Sannuri to it.
Yoo Yeonha came down from Sannuri’s back without a word. She staggered
but didn’t fall. She sat down against the cave wall, pretending to be
fine, and stared at me. I took this moment to message Jin Seyeon.
“Jin Seyeon-ssi, are you okay?”
Tzzt. Static noise rang out a few times before she returned a reply.
—Yes, we managed to survive. The car broke down, but we were able to
escape. Where are you now?
As expected, a Master-rank Hero wasn’t so easily killed. It seemed she
even managed to protect Jin Sechan.
“I’ll send you the coordinates. Tell me if you’re too far.”
I sent her our current location. After a brief silence, a troubled voice
—Yes, we’re far, perhaps two days away on foot. We went in different
directions after all…
“Then send me your location. I’ll pick you up.”
—Pick me up?
I looked at Sannuri. She immediately understood my intention and snorted
“Yes, I have a horse with me. She’s incredibly smart, beautiful, and
Sannuri’s expression brightened. Jin Seyeon’s confused voice rang out.
“Yes. Anyways, send me your coordinates first.”
Soon, my smartwatch beeped, and I showed Jin Seyeon’s location to
Sannuri stared at the coordinate for about 10 seconds before neighing
with a nod. She seemed to be in a good mood.
“It’s pretty far, huh? You can run as much as you want.”
“Yep, you don’t have to carry anyone on your way there, so run as
quickly as you want. If you run into any monster or demons, feel free to
kill them all.”
Sannuri cried cheerfully before immediately bolting out of the cave.
Whoosh—! She was as quick as lightning. Black soot flickered above the
ground she passed over.
I chuckled and sat down as well. It was then that I noticed Yoo Yeonha
staring at me fixedly from the side. Her face was pale white, like a
patient who was on the brink of fainting.
I met her gaze, then smirked.
“Are you okay?”
Yoo Yeonha nodded. Did she lose her ability to speak? She hadn’t said a
word since she got on Sannuri.
To lighten up the mood and to make her talk, I said mischievously, “You
look like you’re going to die soon.”
But Yoo Yeonha didn’t say a word. She only stared at me fixedly. Then,
after a long time, she gulped and said simply, “I saw it.”
“Saw what?” I asked back nonchalantly.
“You using a bow.”
At that moment, a gust of wind blew through the cave. The wind made a
strange humming sound echoing off the walls, and I couldn’t hear Yoo
Yeonha properly because of it.
“Yes.” She nodded resolutely.
“Your bow, your arrow, and the huge undulation of magic power you aimed
at the enemy.”
“Thinking about it now, I was the idiot for not even suspecting it.
Even when we were in Cube, your skill with the bow was amazing. I still
remember the curve shot you showed during the festival.”
I didn’t say anything and just scratched my head. I was hoping she was
panicking too much to have noticed, but it seemed that wasn’t the case.
Yoo Yeonha let out a low sigh.
“That bow you took out. I know what it is. No, even if it isn’t me,
anyone decently skilled in the field of information would recognize Black
I just sat still. I was contemplating how to respond. Should I admit it
or deny it? I couldn’t think of any excuse.
But, when I heard Yoo Yeonha’s next words…
“You’re willing to go that far to take revenge on the Chameleon
My head turned blank. It felt like my brain stopped functioning for a
I had no other choice but to maintain my silence… and Yoo Yeonha
“You’re willing to dirty your hands and hurt yourself to—”
Yoo Yeonha paused and looked at me. Her gaze was filled with sympathy and
pity. I didn’t understand where they were coming from.
The only reaction I could give in response…
…was to tilt my head.
