The Novel's Extra - chapter-375
…I looked at her standing outside the door.
The world around me fell silent, but the space around me shrunk.
Everything other than me and her expanded and contracted on their own.
I wondered if I was dreaming.
My body refused to move in shock.
This wasn’t reality.
Thinking so, I closed my eyes.
Hoping that she wouldn’t disappear and praying that I wouldn’t find
myself on top of my bed, I opened my eyes.
She was standing in the same spot.
I really, really couldn’t think of anything. The huge shock seemed to
have fried all my brain cells.
So I stayed still. And I just stared at the woman standing in front of me.
Suddenly, I got cold feet.
What if she was here to acquire my pills like all the other visitors? She
should have forgotten about me, so did I have to treat her like a
…But at that moment,
“I told you before, didn’t I?”
An unbelievable voice flowed into my ears.
“That I would never forget.”
Her eyes shone like jewels.
She was crying.
This was the first time I was seeing her cry.
“…I told you I won’t forget.”
I didn’t know what to do. I could tell tears were flowing down my
cheeks. Her crying was just as shocking as her coming to find me.
Should I comfort her first? Or should I silently embrace her?
If I were to comfort her, what was I supposed to say?
If I were to embrace her, to what degree?
While I stood around hesitating like an idiot, she approached me and
walked into my arms.
A short mutter escaped my lips.
Her scent tickled my nose.
Our clothes touched.
I felt like I was going to faint, but I desperately moved my arm and
supported her waist.
She said my name.
Yi Byul said my name.
With her hands on my chest, looking up at me like a kitten.
“I remember you.”
A droplet of leisure fell inside my heart.
This person remembered me.
Now, Yi Byul would not leave me.
“Thank you. Really.”
I embraced her tightly.
She also dug into my embrace.
A smile of satisfaction bloomed on my face.
This wasn’t a dream, and I was with her.
My smile froze.
What if the co-author suddenly appeared?
What if he said there was an error and took away her memories again?
I looked at Yi Byul who was in my arms.
She was rubbing her face on my chest. I wasn’t sure if she was trying
to wipe off her tears, or if she was simply too happy.
Well, it was probably the former. The Boss I knew would die from
embarrassment knowing she cried.
Ah, she just blew her nose too.
I just wanted to live in this moment.
Without worries, idle thoughts, or concerns.
In the story I finally took back, just the two of us, forever.
…But it seemed my prayers were useless.
I felt another presence approaching the cabin.
No, it couldn’t be called a presence, as it was simply a fierce
The cry of an eagle echoed out.
I looked up at the cabin ceiling while still holding onto Boss. It was a
habit from when I still had the ‘Master Sharpshooter’ Gift. After
all, I could see through objects with that ability.
Of course, I couldn’t see what was beyond the ceiling now, but I had an
Yi Byul left my arms and stood next to me. It looked like she wanted to
greet the person coming here.
Even though she was crying just a moment ago, she was now standing with
dignity, like when she was Boss.
She turned her head and looked at me. I could still see traces of tears
around her eyes.
I tilted my head. She let out a couple of dry coughs before speaking
“I’m the first one who came to see you. Remember that. Yep, I’m the
first. The first… ufufu.”
She then made a pure smile, one that was mischievous and genuinely
With a smile, I kissed her.
When the two hugged, Jin Sahyuk furrowed her brows. As someone who hated
tears and touching reunions, Jin Sahyuk hated having to see something
Of course, she had the sense of mind to not bother them. No matter how
unsightly she found them to be, it was still the scene of a human
triumphing over the world.
“…I didn’t even need to help.”
Jin Sahyuk muttered quietly.
Without a doubt, the existence known as ‘Kim Hajin’ had been erased
from this world. No one remembered Kim Hajin, and no records of him
remained. Kim Hajin had been banished to isolation.
From this point onward was Jin Sahyuk’s uncertain deduction. She
guessed that, although Kim Hajin had been erased, ‘Kindspring’ inside
him remained. As such, people involved with ‘Kim Chundong’ possessed
the potential to remember Kim Hajin.
That was why Jin Sahyuk came here.
To let Kim Hajin know of that ‘potential’ and receive information
But… by the looks of it, it seemed she didn’t need to do a thing.
Thinking about it, it was obvious. The ‘Kwang-Oh Incident’ was deeply
related to Kim Chundong, so those who knew about the incident should have
been able to recall Kim Hajin from Kim Chundong’s past.
Of course, denser people like Kim Suho and Shin Jonghak would never be
able to remember Kim Hajin. Because they didn’t have any point of
connection with Kim Chundong, although they might realize something was
off and recall a tiny bit with their sharp senses, they would never be
able to regain full memory of Kim Hajin.
“…What an unstable world.”
Jin Sahyuk sighed with a hint of self-deprecation.
How could a ‘world’ be so full of loopholes? And how pitiful was it
that she was an existence in such a world?
—What are you going to do from now on?
At that moment, a voice rose from Jin Sahyuk’s heart. It was one filled
with resentment and coldness.
“Mm, that’s what I wanted to ask him. And also what happened to
Kindspring and what will happen to my world?”
Jin Sahyuk closed her eyes and looked into her inner mind. Inside a room
decorated with care, the frozen Puharen was staring at her.
“After all, he’s the one who created this world.”
—Then why aren’t you asking him?
Puharen learned how to talk. But that didn’t mean he was completely
healed. And it certainly didn’t mean he forgave Jin Sahyuk. If
anything, it meant he was now able to attack Jin Sahyuk more directly.
“…I thought he was abandoned by this world, but it turns out
there’s someone in an even worse situation.”
Jin Sahyuk smirked.
As one could see, although the world might have abandoned Kim Hajin, its
people remembered him.
With this, Kim Hajin should be able to live a calm, peaceful life.
But that wasn’t the case for Kindspring.
Kindspring was born on this Earth without parents and lived a life of
solitude before being transported to Akatrina.
Although the deep darkness inside him was partially rooted out while he
served Prihi as his lord, in the end, even Prihi had abandoned him.
He had been abandoned in two different worlds.
And he disappeared without being remembered by anyone.
Jin Sahyuk couldn’t accept that.
As such, so that his name could be remembered forever as her most loyal
servant, she planned to erect a statue of him after reconstructing her
kingdom. And along with her name, she planned to inscribe his name onto
the first page of Akatrina’s history book.
No. Before that, Jin Sahyuk believed Kindspring was alive. She believed
that she would have a miraculous reunion once she returned to Akatrina.
“Alright, let’s go back home.”
—…Are you really trying to go back there?
—You will die if you do. You know what’s in that place.
“I won’t die.”
Jin Sahyuk retorted lightly and opened her eyes.
Puharen’s cold voice came back.
—But I will kill you.
“…It doesn’t matter. If I was going to die by your hands, I
wouldn’t have made it here in the first place.”
—And that’s okay with you? Don’t you have lingering regrets in this
Jin Sahyuk flinched.
Puharen was right about that.
“Lingering regrets, you say….”
That was an emotion Jin Sahyuk didn’t want to admit to. But she
couldn’t trick Puharen. If Puharen said it existed, it must. After all,
he could search her inner mind to his desire.
“I’ll deal with it. In my heart, there isn’t a regret bigger than
With a grin, Jin Sahyuk grasped the Dimension Stone.
Puharen spoke once again.
—Then what is Bell doing? Is he in Akatrina?
“No. Bell… is doing something to try to get back to his world.”
He made Jin Sahyuk speechless every time she thought about him.
He had used Baal to revive the world Baal destroyed. Jin Sahyuk wasn’t
sure if he had planned for it to happen or if things just turned out that
way, but given how clever and scheming he was, she believed it was the
“But Puharen, you found out about Bell already?”
—Yep. I will reach the deepest part of your mind soon.
“That might be a bit dangerous.”
—Dangerous? I told you. I will kill you.
Just as a portal was created next to Jin Sahyuk…
A red-haired woman appeared from the wavering portal. It was Shimurin,
who promised to be Jin Sahyuk’s supporter.
Woong— Woong— Shimurin waved a staff she purchased from the market.
“Are you ready?”
Jin Sahyuk nodded her head before handing the Dimension Stone to Shimurin.
The Dimension Stone she got from Baal was extremely unstable. It could
transport only one person to Akatrina, so Shimurin’s help was vital.
“Alright… Jin Sahyuk.”
Before using the Dimension Stone to produce a [Dimension Portal],
Shimurin asked once again.
“Are you sure you won’t regret it? If you leave, you won’t be able
to come back.”
“No need to ask again.”
Jin Sahyuk raised her eyebrows imposingly.
“I am a king. No one can stop a king from making her return.”
Shimurin shrugged and activated her dimensional travel grand magic.
The mystical stone fused with her magic power, emitting a purple glow.
Then, it shook violently before scattering into dust. The tiny specks of
the stone rose into the air with Shimurin’s magic power.
The stone and magic power formed an oval shape wavering with purple light.
“Now then, King, move your baggage through first.”
“Getting a bit cheeky there with your tone.”
“Didn’t I tell you? That a grand magician has the same rank as a
‘Would it kill you to treat me with more respect?’
Jin Sahyuk clicked her tongue grumpily. Then, she threw in eight magic
bags filled with food, robots, weapons, armors, and other daily
“Then should we go in too?”
Shimurin spoke as she looked into the portal.
The portal still had enough energy. Even after moving so much baggage, it
could still carry two people over. Shimurin smiled in satisfaction from
her perfect calculation.
“Yes. Let’s go, Shimurin. To Akatrina.”
Just like that, Jin Sahyuk was about to step into the portal.
Jin Sahyuk paused sensing a sudden presence. They really appeared out of
Shimurin and Jin Sahyuk stopped and stared towards the cabin.
An eagle was circling the sky above Kim Hajin’s cabin. It was almost as
if it knew Kim Hajin was there. And many people were walking up the
Alps’ mountain path.
Jin Sahyuk’s shoulders trembled.
Jin Sahyuk was well acquainted with most of them. Despite not liking
them, they had been through thick and thin with her. To put it more
grandly, they were heroes who fought against the world and triumphed.
Jin Sahyuk chuckled as she stared at them. Yet, she didn’t leave any
words behind for them.
But a single whiff of wind blew and shook the Alps’ grassy field.
The northern wind swept away the things that were there previously.
Silence descended in an instant.
The portal wavering with purple light and the woman delicately smiling in
front of it both disappeared. Only the footsteps left on the grassy field
served as evidence that they existed.
However, it wasn’t lonely on the grassy field.
With a deep breath, more footsteps were soon inscribed.
These footsteps had a clear goal. Their owners had remembered the person
they had forgotten about and were here in search of that person.
“Let’s go. There’s no need for us to make a big deal out of it.
A voice rang out, seemingly filled with pleasant nervousness.
The wind seemed to carry a blue hue, and a beautiful sunset was cast over
Next up… was a reunion with someone they had forgotten about.
