I Possessed the Villain in the Lily Novel chapter 133
133 – Immortality (14)
The sky was still bright. It was a bright and clear day that did not go well with the damp and dreary energy of the earth.
Someone shouted that destruction was coming. Someone got down on their knees and muttered a prayer. I was on my nerves to read the newspaper, which burst with news every few minutes, and the extras covered the town without cooling off.
Splinters of paper scattered on the street flew like snowflakes. As many as the number of papers, people’s nervousness and anxiety overtook them.
It was really chaos.
A name that only appears in children’s books or demon papers. A being who was defeated by a hero a thousand years ago. However, it is known that the Demon King has never appeared, and the Hero still maintains his name as a candidate.
Conspiracy theorists claim that demon lords appear periodically, just like the candidates for the hero.
However, for most people, the candidate for the hero has been established as a symbolic existence to worship the hero rather than a real hero. To put it bluntly, the candidate for the hero was just a word representing the person who could catch the devil the best in the current generation.
Everyone thought that a hero candidate would never truly become a hero.
But now that thinking has been revamped.
“Layla~ Look at this! This is a collection of evil deeds that the candidate for the Demon King has committed so far! Hey~ After all, everyone is really good at it, right? Asking for information so quickly!”
Demon king candidate.
The appearance of a name that rivals the hero candidates.
It’s a name that only appears in novels, but the people had no choice but to believe the news. It was because the people who announced the news were none other than those with high names, such as the Pope and the Witch President.
They are not in a position to publicize nonsense, even if it’s a joke. If you hear a sound that you want to dismiss as nonsense at the same time, you have no choice but to believe it.
“…Do you have any credibility?”
When the fact that the demon king candidate existed was officially confirmed, the world literally became a mess. Demons and monsters alone can threaten everyday life, but is there anything more than that?
In addition, through the extra, the evil deeds that the existence has committed so far have been revealed one by one. The fact that Morbe, who manifested the devil in Whitrum and attacked the witch chairman, was his subordinate was enough to make Layla, who had come down from the Sky Castle, angry.
“That’s right~ Lila, let’s just ignore that part~”
However, most of them were unreliable because there was no specific source except for the facts that Fresia had disclosed. The incident in which a devil worshiper made more than 3,000 corpses, and the rumor that the sky in a certain countryside turned red and there was an earthquake are all attributed to him.
All rumors without rumors have gained weight and rolled like a snowball. After a few more hours, it seemed that all the demon-related cases in the world would be turned into the actions of the demon king candidate.
Rumors were created and spread so quickly after the poet admitted the existence of the demon king candidate, but people were not equipped with reason enough to think about these details. This irrationality was also one of the actions of the demon king candidate.
“Ummm, by the way, this should feel like a dissertation~?”
Rumours were too stimulating before credibility. Numerous gossips, unsourced articles, and scraps of newspapers shot like arrows of fire were enough to heat up the world in a few hours. So much information fell like snow and set the world on fire.
Those who demand urgent action, those who buy groceries for the purpose of evacuation, those who frantically pay attention to what other information is available, and those who pack up and run to the train. Various struggles to avoid disaster filled the streets.
In this place, in Ilios, such a phenomenon occurred even more radically.
“Master… You should have given permission to come down…”
“Ummm, no Lila! When do you get that permission! Pre-do and then-permit! It’s the basics of negotiations~”
It is because Ilios has been pointed out as the current location of the Demon King candidate.
Of course, Ilios is not alone. Several other areas have also been named as locations. However, as much as Ilios, there was a source called the introduction of a paladin, and the newspaper that contained the news was a place where reporters were mainly employed. There were several factors that contributed to reliability.
Reporter Suin has been in the limelight as a talent specialized in reporters with her unique movements and excellent senses. In such a newspaper specializing in beastmen, it was a reason to believe that Ilios was taken in particular, and not anywhere else. Of course, as the situation is the situation, this too could have been just a rumor, but…
“My intuition pointed me to this place! No one can stop me now~”
As soon as Lila’s teacher, the Witch of the Lake, Minerva, saw the newspaper, she quickly flew to Ilios. Although it is a world where news is delivered even faster due to printing magic tools and glass birds, her power of action, which even uses a warp diamond to fly to Ilios when she has seen the news, is more than the speed at which paper is delivered.
Minerva’s eyes sharpened as she sat leisurely on her bench and sipped tea amidst the wave-like crowd.
“…Looking at that, I don’t think you’ll regret coming here~”
Startled, Lila looked back at her, startled by the disturbing energy. On the ground hidden by the crowds and buildings, in the blue sky, smeared marks like paint stood out. Evening is a sunset that can only be seen for a short time. Rather than that, the red marks were spreading softly.
The redness was cool and disgusting, like bath water that had dissolved the traces of self-injury. The red sky that flowed revoltingly like colored mold on the wall gradually killed the coolness and embroidered the sky with its own color. It was neither night nor evening, but it signaled the end of the day. Like a flare of this bright world setting down, I took people’s attention and showed off my strength.
After the sky, the ground shook. The water droplets in the teacup burst out of the cup, and the liquid that escaped from the circle that confined it soared into the sky instead of falling to the ground.
The cloud fell, and the liquid that flowed from the bottom to the top flowed towards the sky. In the teacup filled with tea until earlier, stars were placed instead, and the trees had to give up holding on to the leaves. The leaves left and filled the sky instead of the clouds, and clouds instead of the desolate branches.
It was chaos, and it was reverse. The sky gave up on being the sky and fell to the ground. The earth stretched ceaselessly toward the sky.
It was a sign of destruction.
“Mom~ Look at that tree~”
“He’s so good! Get ready quickly!”
In a world that has changed so much, adults are terrified, but to children it is just one of the mystical phenomena. For her age, a lot in this world is still a mystery. The reverse power of the demon king candidate was treated as another spectacle.
I left the child who was excited by the scenery outside the window for a while, and the mother quickly packed up. I was thinking about leaving Ilios, but seeing that red sky made me harden my mind.
Let’s leave the village quickly, isn’t it something to live on first?
Even though the happy hour came, the world brought another disaster without even noticing. It was sad and full of energy, but it was not something humans could resist. The mother grabbed her stuffy chest and packed her clothes and things that could be money. In the meantime, she secretly shoved an album of her daughter’s activities into her pack, knowing that it would become her burden.
The daughter, the main character of the album, asked.
“I will not go with you.”
The mother was so shocked that she almost dropped her pack.
“What are you talking about Innis!”
Innis didn’t even blink at the sound of her mother’s screams that she hadn’t heard in a long time. Rather, only the determination in his eyes became clear. She was thinking of going against that demon lord candidate. The mother noticed right away.
“You… You, no. Don’t do that. Look at the sky now. Isn’t it different from demons and monsters…”
No. A change of this magnitude is quite possible even for a demon. This was a preconceived notion that the demon her mother had seen before mainly caused destruction. Also, although it is not well lit, in the statement released by the Witch Association, the demon king candidate is still only a candidate. So it was said that it was nothing more than a demon.
However, even excluding this fact, it was still a dangerous enough existence. There’s no way that a being that could cause such a transformation would be on the same level as a weak demon.
“Innis, this isn’t what you’re supposed to do. It’s been a while since we met today. It’s too dangerous…”
“Because it’s dangerous… I’ll do it. Because someone has to do it, I’ll do it.”
She stroked the head of the child who was still watching her world cheerfully. She didn’t understand why it was so crowded outside at her age. However, she only guesses from the atmosphere that something is dangerous.
“Sister… Where are you going…?”
A child overhearing the conversation asked. Innis nodded her head.
“A demon lord candidate is now in our village and doing bad things? So my sister will take him down. So I can’t go with her… I’m sorry.”
Hearing that, the child’s eyes twinkled.
“Whoa! Then… Take me too!”
“Umm… No! If you listen carefully to Mom, I can take you later.”
The child ran off and took her toys and things and stuffed them into her bag. The mother looked at the sight bitterly. She hesitated whether to punish her sister for prompting her to do something risky.
She soon realized that her actions were only because she had collected her sister’s deeds and praised her as her hero.
Since her husband and wife had always been proud of Innis’ achievements, Ai treated the task of defeating that demon king candidate as a proud and interesting task.
Why did Ai follow her older sister without fear?
Because she admired her older sister who defeats demons. So the child did not mourn her sister’s courage even now. In the child’s world, the older sister was a great hero who defeated evil.
This was the same in the mother’s heart.
Her mother spoke behind Innis’s back as he confidently grabbed the doorknob in a hurry.
“See you later.”
Looking back, Innis’ hand was trembling slightly, but he smiled brightly enough to hide it. It was the specialty of Ilios, a smile resembling the sun rising brightly.
“Get out of the way!”
“Don’t block the road!”
“Where is your mother?”
“Ajumma is here!”
The scenery of the sea due to crowds with no consideration for the elderly or weak. Innis crossed the crowd with a broomstick that filled the roads denser than ants.
“Please give me a ride too!”
“Are you a witch? Hey, I hope those who have learned are very relaxed.”
Even while buying her resentment or envy, her sarcastic mouth stopped when she realized that the direction she was heading was the opposite of the direction of her current flight. She was flying not to flee, but to make enemies.
Without hearing any of the murmurs, Innis flew toward the wings above the mountain without hesitation.
‘…I should use the daylight…’
I was looking at the distance to set the range of that overwhelming wide-area magic.
When first used, it was intended to kill a demon that was destroying a village, resulting in his brother being burned and a vast wheat field reduced to ashes. That trauma of hers took her magic away from her for a while.
The last time she used it was to kill an infinite demon. As a result, she nearly killed Eva. But he didn’t die. He stood proudly before himself and showed off his life.
He gave Innis strength and courage. It made her think that Innis’ magic could bring salvation, not disaster.
‘Baby… Now I can fly like this thanks to you…’
This flight now is thanks to Iva. He gave the power to shoot fireballs at that huge demon king candidate.
Innis was convinced that it was he who brought him in front of his family today.
He learned that when he couldn’t muster up the courage, he used some occult power to stand in front of the door, and that he left out so as not to disturb his family’s time.
Even though he didn’t know what that mysterious power was, Innis didn’t care much. To Innis, Eba is like a miracle. His existence is already miraculous, but what does it matter about the magic he casts? Rather, the kiss I had with him gave a more mysterious resonance.
Innis was determined to introduce him to his family after this was over. Let’s show off this heroic story to Iva, Karen, and those cute little sisters.
‘No… I shouldn’t do this to Eba. Because daylight can be traumatic. …Is not it? Rather, after I speak, I take responsibility for taking care of the fearful Iba…’
Even in the middle of growing a dark and shady inside that she herself did not know, Innis did not think at all that the owner of those wings would be Iva.
Starting with her, a new movement arose under her red sky. Amid the emotions of heartbreak, fear, and resentment toward the person in front of me for survival, hope sprang up like an awl.
It wasn’t just the Devil’s Broom.
A huge voice came through the tumultuous crowd. I turned my head in the direction of the voice, and this time I saw a female knight lifting a huge sword into the sky.
“I understand your anxiety! You must be afraid of the danger of death, you must want to live faster! But now is not the time to blame each other!”
Light spread in a straight line from that greatsword. It was a heat ray of enormous density that would melt just by touching it. It looked like enough to cut off those huge wings.
“What you see over there is a candidate for the Demon King! The greatest enemy of our humanity and the existence of the reverse! The more this chaos increases, the more his power will only increase! Now is the time to unite, not adversary!”
The tone was rough, but the intimidation was so great that I did not dare to refute it.
“I am Equesta, Commander of the Holy Knights! I am a person who can use the strongest holy power certified by the church!”
She raised her finger and pointed where her broom had gone.
“Also, the person who just passed by is Innis, who has the highest record in the current Demonic Realm!”
She pointed her finger at the broom that was heading away. At the tips of those fingers, there were not only brooms, but also two wings that resembled a red sky and a giant tree that made the sky spread out far away.
“It’s not just this! We have many powers! Now, countless talented people who can defeat the demon king, who is less than half a penny, are gathering here in Ilios!”
Following her words, a blue sword adorned the sky.
“And here is the one who can stand up to the devil the most in the modern human race!”
Those who can give the greatest hope here and now.
“The candidate for the hero is right here!”
Wiz, the warrior candidate proudly raised his holy sword.
The famous strongmen started to move.
To kill none other than the demon lord candidate.
To kill Eva.
