The Novel's Extra - chapter-308
Jin Seyeon looked out the carriage window. The steppes of Central Asia
looked different than what she saw on textbooks. Weeds grew to
knee-length, trees stood tall reaching towards the sky, and there were
even villages formed by small Djinn groups.
“…It feels like I’m in a fantasy world.” Jin Seyeon muttered in a
In response, Jin Sechan also looked out the carriage. But because his
eyesight wasn’t as inhumane as the others, he couldn’t see the same
scenery as Jin Seyeon. So, he turned his sight back to Yoo Yeonha.
Yoo Yeonha was staring at the tilionium case she was holding in her arms.
She seemed to be deep in thought. Jin Sechan was worried about her but
couldn’t bring himself to say anything. In his mind, his only role as
her secretary was to watch her from the sidelines.
“Are you okay?” Jin Seyeon asked what he wanted to. Jin Seyeon smiled
at Jin Sechan before moving over to the seat next to Yoo Yeonha.
Yoo Yeonha glanced at Jin Seyeon, then said with a nod, “I’m fine.”
“Don’t keep that case too close to your body. It will have bad
effects. If you want, it’s not too late to call demon merchants.”
Hearing this, Yoo Yeonha smiled bitterly. The group had already
considered calling demon merchants, who would do anything for the right
amount of DP.
“…No, demon merchants are demons also. They’ll desire this as
But Yoo Yeonha didn’t trust them. There was no guarantee that demon
merchants wouldn’t want something that other demons were desperate to
Yoo Yeonha let out a deep sigh and looked at the case holding the
“Is that item that important?” Jin Seyeon asked.
Yoo Yeonha nodded her head and replied without a moment of hesitation,
“Yes, I know from the Skills I obtained from the Tower of Wish. [Basic
Skill – Lv.9 Law of Thoughts], which amplifies the speed and strength of
my thinking, and [Special Skill – Lv.9 Appraisal Eyes], which lets me
appraise an item in my field of vision.”
Analysis of [Dimensional Entropy] was still happening inside Yoo
Yeonha’s head. Essential Dynamics was also the best in the world at
extracting magic power from crystals and mana stones.
“This item can save the lives of countless people.”
“….” Jin Seyeon looked at her for a moment, then smiled and said,
“I hope so too.”
Yoo Yeonha smiled back at her feebly.
“Hmm….” On the other hand, Kim Hajin, who was watching the two from
nearby, couldn’t understand the bond between them. As far as he was
aware, there shouldn’t be any connection between the two. Just when did
they develop such a sister-like relationship?
“…How did you two get so close?” Kim Hajin asked, unable to hold
back his curiosity.
Yoo Yeonha and Jin Seyeon glanced at Kim Hajin, but both leaned against
the carriage without saying anything.
“What the…” Kim Hajin pouted and furrowed his brows.
Yoo Yeonha found this side of him cute. “I’ll tell you later.”
“…Tsk.” Kim Hajin nodded unhappily, then in the next moment, his
eyes widened. He suddenly began to scan the air with his eyes.
[Where are you? I’m taking the test for the Gate of Glory.]
Chae Nayun had messaged him. Kim Hajin smiled and shook his head.
[I can’t tell you that.]
[What? Why not? …Actually, that’s probably for the best.]
Chae Nayun gave up surprisingly quickly. Kim Hajin tilted his head.
[I don’t think I’ll be able to talk if you’re in front of me. I’m
not ready yet… you know what I mean?]
‘Heh.’ Kim Hajin smirked.
[Yeah, I guess it’s still a bit awkward. So?]
[Right, so… I was thinking we could just talk a couple of times a day
with this. So that we can get familiar with talking to each other. We can
also play games. Did you know there’s a new version of Gladiator of the
[Download it. It’s popular among Heroes because it helps with image
training. They added a bunch of skills, so it’s super popular.
Tournaments regularly get over 900,000 viewers….]
As expected of a known gamer, Chae Nayun began to talk about recent news.
Kim Hajin just listened to her with a smile on his face, while Jin Seyeon
and Yoo Yeonha stared at him like he had gone mad.
[Ah, wait, the heck, I’m paired up with Jin Sahyuk.]
[What? Jin Sahyuk?]
[Yeah, I’m hanging up for now.]
“What are you doing by yourself?” As soon as Chae Nayun cut off the
communication, Yoo Yeonha asked. It was then.
“…!” Kim Hajin’s expression stiffened. It wasn’t just him, Jin
Seyeon was the same. With their supernatural perception, the two of them
had sensed someone’s ‘gaze’.
An outsider was watching them from afar.
Kim Hajin and Jin Seyeon exchanged glances silently. Soon, Jin Seyeon’s
Mental Transmission rang out inside Kim Hajin’s head.
—We should just let this person keep watching. I don’t know who it
is, but I don’t sense any hostility. We should act normal.
Kim Hajin nodded his head.
Jin Seyeon smiled brightly and said, “By the way, everyone’s raising
a ‘sponsored character’ with DP, right?”
The DP System was granted to anyone who hunted demonic monsters even
once. Those who earned more than 50,000 DP could play something called
the ‘minigame’. Sponsoring the people of Lailos was growing in
“Of course, you’ll be surprised to know who I’m sponsoring.” Yoo
Yeonha said proudly.
“Oh, really? Show me.”
With a grin, Yoo Yeonha displayed the information of the individual she
was sponsoring. It was a high-rank knight named Gimitos.
“Wow, Gimitos the Berserker! He was yours? The Lailos Community was
full of comments praising him.”
“…Lailos what?” Kim Hajin asked in surprise. Though he wasn’t
aware, an online community had developed for Lailos sponsors. The site
already had more than 200,000 members.
“There’s a post every time Gimitos buys a new armor or weapon.
Didn’t he buy the Black Flame Dragon Armor recently?”
“…Well, I don’t want to brag. So, what about you?” Yoo Yeonha
shrugged her shoulders and changed the subject.
“I’m raising an archer. Look.”
The Lailosian Jin Seyeon was sponsoring was an intermediate-rank archer
named Lekio. Yoo Yeonha and Jin Sechan looked at him with flashing eyes.
“That bow looks like it’s made with emetos ore. Ah, his armor is made
with quality leather as well…”
While the three of them talked, Kim Hajin checked up on his retainer,
「Litrain became the youngest Master-rank knight, obtaining the title,
Even after rising to the position of a knight order commander, she
didn’t stop training. The once small ‘Extra Temple’ now had over a
thousand visitors per day. Serving under her were dozens of apprentice
knights who were drawn by her charisma.
An order of knights called the Starlight Knights was created inside the
existing knight order of the kingdom, making Litrain’s influence one of
the strongest in the kingdom.
However, Litrain was still worried about one thing. Recently, her
disciples and the followers of the Extra Temple were growing suspicious
of Extra-nim. They knew that over a year had passed since he last
Litrain had grown tremendously since the last time Kim Hajin saw her. He
had earned over 200,000 DP from her, a third of which he immediately sent
back to Litrain.
“Who are you sponsoring, Hajin-ssi? Show us.” Jin Seyeon asked at
Kim Hajin hesitated for a moment. “…Well, it’s her.”
He displayed Litrain’s information rather casually. But everyone else
immediately dropped their jaws.
“Wait, Litrain… she’s famous in the community… My Gimitos….”
Soon, Yoo Yeonha’s jealous voice rang out.
On the other hand, Leraje was watching them from a distance. As seeing
far was her specialty, she didn’t have any trouble following their
movements. She stared at the man named Kim Hajin carefully.
He knew her name, and he didn’t mutter it thoughtlessly. Leraje had the
ability to discern what state someone was in based on their voice.
“What are you up to, Duchess?”
At that moment, her henchman, Corte, asked her. Leraje replied simply.
—Being here alone is boring.
—Did you get in touch with those old devils?
“Yes, three devils obtained incarnation bodies. Rank 3 Devil, Prince
Vassago, Rank 29 Devil, Count Astaroth, and Rank 62 Devil, Valac.”
Hearing this, Leraje immediately frowned.
—Old Man hasn’t escaped his curse yet?
Old Man. She was referring to Baal.
Corte smiled and shook his head, “No, King Baal has escaped the curse.
The Gate of the Demon Realm will soon open, so his descent is not far
—How long will it take?
“Three months and not a day more.”
Three months. It was too long for Leraje. If she became too bored, she
might wander around the outside world. Corte wanted to avoid risking her
identity as much as possible.
To do this, Corte took out an electronic device he had brought beforehand.
“It’s called a game console. Humans like to play it to entertain
themselves. With this, you will never be bored.”
—…Is that so?
Leraje showed interest. It was a good sign. Corte knelt down and offered
the virtual reality gaming console to Leraje.
—How do I use it?
“You just have to wear the helmet and turn the game on by moving your
Leraje did as Corte suggested. Her vision turned black for a moment, then
a blue screen popped up in front of her. At the same time, a strange
sensation of being transported to another world encompassed her.
[I will explain how to use this console. Please do as I say.]
Before she could get used to the sensation, a message popped up in front
of her, and Leraje furrowed her brows.
—Who are you to tell me what to do?
[Try moving your fingers.]
—I don’t want to. Introduce yourself first.
[Try moving your fingers.]
Leraje moved her fingers, her intent being to destroy the impudent being
talking to her. But the moment she moved her fingers, the world changed.
The blue room she was in transformed into a vast grassland.
Leraje widened her eyes in surprise.
[Here is a list of popular games. Click on the one you want to play.]
[1. Gladiator of the Century]
[3. Grand Theft Auto]
Leraje stared at the messages before clicking on ‘Gladiator of the
[You already own the game. Accessing ‘Gladiator of the Century’…]
[Welcome to the world of Gladiator of the Century.]
[Please set your ID.]
[Your ID will be your name inside Gladiator of the Century.]
—You’re kind unlike the one before.
Leraje nodded in satisfaction before writing down her ID.
Lijengy was purely a typo, but Leraje didn’t catch it in the slightest.
—What? Lijengy? You…
Having become Lijengy, Leraje expressed her anger at the machine for
calling her the wrong name.
[Next up, Essence of the Strait’s rising star, Chae Nayun, and the
black horse of the tournament, Jin Sahyuk!]
Seoul’s Hero Plaza.
Chae Nayun and Jin Sahyuk were placed in the same team, and the two of
them entered the maze side by side.
Of course, Chae Nayun showed no intention of working together with her,
bolting off to the opposite direction the moment they entered the maze.
Although running in a random direction wasn’t recommended inside a
maze, Chae Nayun’s intuition gave her an undeniable edge. Chae Nayun
knew about her supernatural intuition, so she believed she would find the
exit before long.
But Jin Sahyuk had no intention of letting that happen. She activated
Reality Manipulation. Her magic power seeped into the maze and changed
The change in the maze eliminated the exit altogether. Chae Nayun, who
wasn’t unaware of the change, thought of the shifting maze as part of
“…She really is an idiot.” Jin Sahyuk sneered. Now, Chae Nayun
wouldn’t be able to find the exit no matter what she did. All Jin
Sahyuk had to do was wait until she grew tired and came back.
Jin Sahyuk sat down on the floor and sent Mental Transmissions to Bell to
The carriage continued to race through Central Asia as Jin Seyeon, Yoo
Yeonha, and Jin Sechan kept their eyes glued to Litrain. They were fully
watching her every move, exclaiming every once in a while about her
beauty, strength, and kindness.
By the time they fell asleep, they had become avid fans of Litrain.
After sleeping for 3~4 hours, the carriage reached China. The safe zone
wasn’t far away, but we kept our guard up.
“…The gaze went away.” Jin Seyeon said.
“Yeah.” I nodded my head.
Clack, clack. The carriage moved peacefully. Then, I turned to Jin
Seyeon. She was also looking at me. By the looks of it, she must have
also felt the unusual presence approaching us.
“Yeonha-ssi, we should get ready for battle.”
Yoo Yeonha was startled by Jin Seyeon’s words, but she soon took out
her whip courageously.
Jin Seyeon said, “We’re surrounded. There’s no way to break
through. Rather than being ambushed, we should go out and face them.”
It would be annoying if the carriage was destroyed by an ambush.
I opened the carriage door and walked outside. Jin Seyeon, Yoo Yeonha,
and Jin Sechan followed suit.
In that instant, hostility and killing intent shot up. Wind carrying
demonic energy blew over, and the enemy’s presence drew closer.
“Don’t worry, we’ll win for sure. I’m a hundred percent
Jin Seyeon took out her bow as she calmed Yoo Yeonha. I also took out my
Suddenly, demonic energy filled the air. A giant storm seemed to brew as
a shooting star shot down from the sky.
The shooting star landed a little ways in front of us. Unsurprisingly,
the shooting star was a living being.
“Haha, how are you all doing on this fine day?”
I knew who he was. The mask covering half of his face made it obvious. It
But Destruction wasn’t the only enemy. Dozens of Djinns appeared from
the ground, sky, and land and surrounded us.
“Uhahahaha.” Destruction burst out into laughter. Yoo Yeonha stared
at Destruction and clenched her teeth.
“It’s been a while, Yoo Jinwoong’s daughter.”
“…You know him?” Jin Seyeon asked.
“A little bit. He lost to my father back in the day.”
“He went crazy from his inferiority complex and ended up losing half of
his face to my father.”
Hearing this, Destruction’s face contorted heavily. Seething in rage,
he glared at Yoo Yeonha.
“It seems the daughter is just as trashy as the father…”
Then, he took a step forward with a grin. The Djinns around the area all
released their demonic energy and transformed into a devil-like form.
Unsurprisingly, Destruction’s subordinates were all skilled with Devil
Destruction asked, “Where’s the Dimensional Entropy? Inside the
carriage? I’ll let you die peacefully if you hand it over.”
However, Yoo Yeonha shook her head.
Destruction furrowed his brows, “Trust me. If you hand over the
Dimensional Entropy, I’ll chop off your heads cleanly and send you
mostly intact to the father you love so much. Otherwise—”
“Shut it. Your breath is smelly.”
Destruction’s expression turned ugly. I transformed the Desert Eagle
into its machine gun form.
Destruction let out a deep sigh. Then, he scratched his head with his
long nails, which began to turn black. Without a doubt, this partial
change was also Devil Transformation.
“…Looks like I’ll have to go back on my words.”
A giant horn protruded out from his head, and his body began to turn
black with demonic energy. Destruction bent his body like a track runner
at the starting line, then shot forward like a bullet.
No, that’s what he tried to do.
A clear, child-like voice rang out from the sky. Shackles of magic power
bound Destruction’s body.
It wasn’t just Destruction. The entire world seemed to have responded to
the voice as Destruction’s subordinates and even the blowing wind froze
Destruction turned his head desperately to the direction the voice came
A ‘small person’ was floating 10 meters above the ground. Her
symbolic white hair shone beautifully, and her proud, chic eyes glared at
The Hero who defined a generation had arrived.
“…Why did you come so late?”
Jin Seyeon looked up at her and smiled.
“I came as quickly as I could. You told me to come secretly. I’m the
chairman of the Temple of Justice, you think it’s easy for me to leave
work without anyone knowing?”
Aileen grumbled and hopped down from a puff of cloud she was standing on.
She landed lightly inside the area frozen in time by her single word.
“Looks at all the trash here.” She said with a sneer.
Yoo Yeonha finally snapped out of her daze and glanced at Jin Seyeon,
asking for an explanation.
Jin Seyeon smiled and whispered.
—I told you, we’re going to win for sure. I secretly asked for backup.
Destruction resisted Aileen’s Spirit Speech as hard as he could. He
twisted his neck forcefully and muttered with rage.
“Shut your mouth.”
Aileen’s words muted Destruction, but his eyes were still glaring at
her with killing intent.
Aileen furrowed her brows
“…You’re annoying. Just get crushed!”
A short exclamation rang out in the empty field. And that was enough.
Destruction’s body folded on itself in a strange way before exploding.
…That was the end.
We stared at the scene in a daze. Aileen had gotten far more powerful
than when we saw her in the Tower of Wish, or even when we saw her during
the fight against Orden.
She was almost at the level of a ‘transcendent’.
Just what happened?
“Pft, impressed? I got an amazing Unique Skill at the Tower of Wish.
This is nothing to me now.”
Aileen strutted her chest and looked around. The leader of the Djinns
were now dead, but the remaining ones couldn’t move because of
Aileen’s Spirit Speech.
Aileen ignored them and approached Jin Seyeon.
“Anyways, why are you here?”
“Yes? Ah… about that.”
Jin Seyeon scratched the back of her neck for a bit, then placed her hand
on Yoo Yeonha’s shoulder.
“Let me introduce her first. This is Yoo Yeonha, the Chief Officer of
the guild I’m in.”
“…Chief Officer? What do you mean, you’re not in a…”
In an instant, Aileen’s eyes widened.
“Wait, you mean…?”
Yoo Yeonha was the first to realize what Jin Seyeon meant.
This was Jin Seyeon’s response to the offer she made a long time ago.
Yoo Yeonha looked at Jin Seyeon, then at Aileen, then at me.
Then, she jumped excitedly.
