I Possessed the Villain in the Lily Novel chapter 123
123 – Immortality (4)
I tried to sleep for a bit like that, but failed again. Maybe it was a dream, but my memory is still blurry today. But I could never leave it empty. Wiz’s ghostly feeling made him do it.
After sighing, I tried to organize my dream. The first priority is to prevent the descent of the demon of death itself. The next best thing is to know how to take it down. The latter is next to impossible. So, of course, you should try the former.
I knew that the seal of the three demons and the restraint of the devil worshipers could not stop it.
So this time I decided to follow Stella’s advice.

Parts for another demonic ritual to be dedicated other than the Demon Set and the Demon Worshipers. I was thinking of looking for it.
Wiz got out of bed without forcing herself to continue her unrequited sleep. This time, I didn’t need anyone’s help. Wiz took only a small amount of money, a holy sword, and a hood for cognitive impairment and left the dorm.
Stella left a note summarizing the dream, in case of an emergency. After the training is over, I will see it slowly.
The sky was still a blue and mysterious color with the morning dew still hanging there. The air that had been polluted by the snow was clearly transparent. There were only clouds floating in the sky.
There was no snow yet. Wiz lowered her eyes.
The city scene was lively and healthy. Those who stood up diligently in the morning took the sunlight and led the world. After the snow came, they were all buried in the cold and stopped.
Wiz quickened her steps.
She didn’t have a specific place to go. However, wherever the devil worshipers had been, it was obvious that the demonic power would be strong, albeit weakly.
Let’s search all those places. Wiz made that promise.
Of course, it was obvious that it would take a lot of time.
But it didn’t matter.
Time was on her side.
Even now, even after death.
She is not allowed to die to her.
The wind split.
【Body Time Acceleration】
She explored the city with a step that was distinctly different from others.
Fortunately, Wiz’s idea was quite right. This is because traces of devil worshipers remained intact in the basements of houses in deserted alleys, in caves dug in remote corners of reservoirs, and in sewers.
If you go to a place where demonic energy is particularly strong, there are traces of it like a ghost. It was even more surprising that people hadn’t been able to find it. He must have used magic to avoid people’s approach.
It is a magic that makes the place accessible only to the target person. For those who do not, the gaze is not directed and curiosity is not aroused.
Wiz must have been outside of her magic’s influence as she clearly set her goal and approached the dark place.
The place I visited this time was the sewer. The peculiar smell of filth clogged her nostrils. However, the reason she vomited was not because of the sewage smell.
This time, it was because the disgusting smell of blood rushed into my nose.
A magic circle painted with blood, a rotting maggot-infested corpse, and other blades thrown around. Its use was clearly torture.
The underground passage, the attic, and the artificially created earth cave were like this. There were always human corpses, magic circles, and instruments of torture.

Perhaps it was the fear of death, the offerings. This was predicted. It must have required a vast emotional ritual to support the high-end offering of three demons.
The problem was that all the victims were corpses.
Wiz explored the city as fast as he could. He stamped his feet in dozens of devil worshipers’ ceremonial sites. However, in each place, the ritual had already been completed.
From nob le mt l dot com
People had already been sacrificed.
Unable to hold back the rush of nausea, Wiz headed outside. As long as you report it, the body will be recovered someday. He was already dead too late.
Wiz has always hated blood. He had a peculiar smell and hated the touch. She also hated the color changing over time. Her feelings were closer to disgust than fear.
Wiz guessed that it was because the emotion of death was deeply imbued with blood. Considering that the abhorrence of death is expelled through blood instead, this inexplicable abhorrence was also understandable.
Death, which was the end for others, was a repetition to Wiz.
So it was okay to witness death itself, like a corpse. Are you witnessing someone else’s end?
But he hated associations with death. It meant repetition to Wiz.
After escaping from the thick smell of blood, the world outside was still green. There were no eyes.
However, there were eyes to see.
“…Captain, I found you here. Yes… Yes…”
She wasn’t as tall as Wiz, but she was a small girl. If there is a peculiarity, it is the fluffy ears on the head. It was a prisoner.
I must have wandered around too much. The hood of cognitive impairment only makes the impression difficult to recognize, leaving clues such as smells and sounds. It was probably because they followed the scent based on the smell left all over the city.
Even Wiz had seen the beast-man girl in front.
“The Holy Knights…?”
She was probably a Paladin member who was said to have been an assassin. It was the person the leader particularly liked and said he would keep by his side.
“Yes, that’s right.”
The paladin, an unknown beast, nodded her head as if he had heard her murmur.
There was no time to get caught. Wiz, without hesitation, made time fast and passed by the girl who was her bestie. However, she couldn’t.
Because a black wire resembling her shadow was laid in the path she was trying to cover.
She hesitated for a moment as a sharp sword approached her back. Wiz quickly dodged it, but she couldn’t avoid getting a stab wound on her shoulder.
“…At least listen to me, otherwise I’ll get scolded again.”
It was strange. In an instant, her body accelerated. Not only that, Wiz’s superpower no longer flowed around her self-image. She tries to speed up time, but her strength is dissipated from the wound, probably because of that beast girl’s superpowers.
Wiz’s prediction was correct. Rumia’s ability is Demon Clan. It is the power to split and scatter all magical things. This is the same for her magical powers and supernatural powers, and her Wiz’s supernatural powers were cut off.
“Come back, warrior candidate. With Stella-sama.”
Wiz grabbed her sword. Her sword body, which was bluer than the sky, had a frightening spirit of anticipation.
“Don’t… Disturb me…!”
Her usual relaxed tone and languid eyes evaporated. She burned with anger and resentment now. Glowing eyes like stars falling towards the ground stabbed the beast girl.
She was terrified for a moment, but she didn’t back down. She was natural She didn’t step back here, but the scary thing was the same. He was more comfortable doing all his duties.
I swallowed her dry saliva, clutching two daggers forged by her shadow.
At that time,
Butterflies blooming profusely in the sky attacked them. At first glance, it looked like a flower petal, and it also looked like thinly sliced human flesh. The papers stole my ears, eyes, and nose with a clattering sound.
Rumia was visibly flustered, but Wiz remained calm. Because this blood-colored crowd of hers knew she was not harming herself.
But she was a little short of her breath.
There wasn’t much reason. This crowd that filled her vision was the only reason she looked over the blizzard she had seen before. It was a simple traumatic pain.
The field of view gradually filled with red, and Wiz shed tears for some reason. She was scared Her vision was red, as if she were shedding tears of blood. She remembered the Stella she had seen in her dreams. Until the very end, she was her corpse, which looked smiling at Wiz.
Wiz gave her body to this crimson airflow and closed her eyes. She was tired, but she couldn’t sleep. She still had so much work to do.
“I’m sorry it’s not Stella.”
When she came to her senses, she was flying in the sky with one side wrapped around her waist.
“…A demon lord candidate?”
“Yes, that’s me.”
Iba did not deny it, but affirmed it. Eva, who nodded her head, was startled. Wiz’s eyes are red. It was a tear stain.
“What, did you cry?”
At that cold and sharp answer, Eva frowned at her. But she didn’t dig deeper than that. He nodded at her again, then smiled.
“Okay, I’ll turn it off. So what should I do now? Where can I drop it off?”
“You don’t like me if you dig in. Then I’ll get scolded by Stella.”
Wiz laughed at his answer. She said she had never said anything like that to him before.
“So, where can I drop you off?”
Silently, she pointed her finger at a roof. Eva said nothing and flew there. Being in the air for a long time without her feet on the ground was quite a new experience.
Instead of white snowballs embroidering the air, her teeth were filled with human bodies and blood. She went down under it, as snugly as snowflakes or dandelion seeds.
“But if I do this… Wouldn’t it be more conspicuous…?”
“Can I be that lax? Of course I’ve already stirred up the senses. Nobody sees us.”
Wiz nodded her head in agreement. My feet, which were swimming in the air, soon reached the place where I was going to step.
“…How did you… Get here…?”
“Stella asked me to find you. Help me while I look for you.”
Eva looked up at the sky and said.
“It’s a nice day… It’s a good weather for people to see.”
Then she let some butterflies fly by her side.
“I’ll erase all your signs and smells. At least you won’t be chased by that paladin for a while.”
Looking at the scenery of butterflies flying around like that, Iba giggled humorously. When she didn’t hear anything back from Wiz, she felt embarrassed and cleared her throat several times.
“Uh… Can you say thank you?”
“Thank you… Inwardly…”
“That’s all right. Gratitude is enough.”
Eva smiled proudly. She turned her gaze to the place where she had been before.
“By the way… I didn’t know that friend would go to the Holy Knights.”
She was honestly quite embarrassed. I couldn’t imagine how far her original work would have been distorted. But that looked much better than an assassin or a stalker. At least from now on, you won’t feel ashamed when you earn money. Eva smiled happily again.
“Do you know… Do you…?”
“It’s just that I was a little tangled up in the past.”
Wiz responded lightly and then turned around.
“Thanks for your help… I’ll tell you later… Via Stella…”
“Just tell them directly.”
Iba lightly touched Wiz’s shoulder as he was about to leave.
“Is there anything else I can help with?”
Come to think of it, there was. Wiz pointed her finger at the forest.
“There’s a devil worshiper in the woods…”
“Huh? Are there devil worshipers?”
Eva asked back in surprise, but Wiz dismissed it as if it was nothing and continued her words.
“If you catch him… Don’t kill him… Keep him as calm as possible…”
Even with that unkind remark, Eva answered without question.
“Okay. That’s all right?”
Wiz tilted her head. Suddenly an assumption flashed through her mind. Thinking of Stella and Iva who were mixing her sticky tongue, Wiz wrapped her arms around herself.
“Why do you treat me so well…? Stella wasn’t enough…?”
What kind of bullsh*t was that? Even Wiz knew that much.
“Then what is…?”
Eva replied as if it were absurd.
“No, what… In life, there are things to ask for and things to listen to. What are you so picky about? You’re such a strange kid. Do you really need a special reason to help each other… Oh, damn it! I don’t know either.”
He sighed deeply, frowned at her, and spat out.
“If you’re really embarrassed, maybe you’ll listen to my request later.”
She had no reason not to. Wiz nodded her head.
“Okay, then the deal is done.”
With those words, the two parted ways.
A weak smile bloomed on Wiz’s lips. She didn’t even notice herself.
Eva spat out her words just like she did earlier.
“Do me a favor.”
His eyes were very loose, and his pupils were out of focus. The dark circles under his eyes resembled the night sea.
There was a big difference from the white world now.
“…What is it?”
“That…Because I’m sleepy?”
Wiz looked at all the places where magi was relatively dense. About 107 places. In just half a day, he toured 107 places to check his ritual offerings. The number 498 so figured out.
A total of 498 bodies were found. Not a single intact person could be found. Numerous traces of torture and corpses prove that the ritual of invoking the demon of death did not take place in a day or two.

Preliminary work has already been completed. Irreversible The harvest in this reality was this. The fear of death has already gathered in sufficient quantities.

Perhaps the death of a devil worshiper is just a turning point. The preparations to summon the demon of death were already perfectly finished.
So, Wiz saw eyes not only in dreams, but also in reality. He met his eyes. These damn eyes were nothing more than inward and outward, and gazed in both dreams and reality.
That’s how it ended up being the two of us again this time. The immortals and the immortals met. The undead begged the undead.
“Just… Kill me.”
Wiz nodded his head. He was loyal enough to grant his request.
Utilizing his previous experience in a dream, this time he let him die without a moment to feel pain or to speak.
The sound of the wind, like the chirping of a bird, cut my throat.

Hot blood welled up.
Wiz felt the blood on his face with his fingers. Compared to snow, it was as warm as fire. Oddly enough, he wasn’t terribly disgusted. All other blood was disgusting, but it was very strange.
The blood of the person you hate the most is the least objectionable. Is it because you already hate everything you hate?
Wiz closed his eyes.
He got hit in the eye.
After that, continue.
As soon as she opened her eyes, the wet blanket greeted her with cold sweat. This wet feeling told me that this place was not a dream, but a reality.
“Ah… It’s a dream.”
Wiz laughed. Her eyes, which had been blurry and dry, had changed even more.
