The Prince Wants To Retire - Chapter 199
The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 199
Agaiden 8. Go home and do nonsense!
At the words of the Earth God, Kariel’s expression darkened.
“Are you still there?”
Even though it’s been quite a while since Baldr disappeared, there are still traces of him.
“… … So what is your contract with him?”
– Final exam.
The earth god, who said it was the last test, looked at Kariel in silence.
-What he asked was to give you one last option.
“You choose… … .”
Kariel looks at the god of the earth with her arms crossed as if she wants to listen.
The arrogant attitude of the earth god wrinkled his expression, but it didn’t matter.
Kariel was nervous even when she first entered this space, but now she knew for sure.
‘Even God can’t touch me.’
The white space is a kind of neutral zone.
And he even knew that the earth god appeared in such a small form was not his intention.
Proving that, the power felt in the current earth god was as weak as Baldr.
That said, there were restrictions on the earth god’s ability to exert his power here beyond the dimension.
‘That’s why the tongue must be long like that.’
One thing I was worried about was the power of the gray gate.
The problem was the power so strong that even he could resist, but he knew at least that it was not the god of the present Earth.
-I will become the god of this place.
-I’ll make it a safe place like Earth. So be my apostle.
As the earth god suggested it while holding out his hand, Kariel looked at him quietly.
“Is that the end?”
-You wouldn’t want to take on troublesome work anyway, would you?
The earth god who speaks as if he knows Kariel’s thoughts.
– It means that I will take care of all the troublesome work. Also, if you want, I’ll send you back to Earth.
The moment the god of the earth finished speaking, the landscape of the earth began to emerge in the white space.
“this… … Earth?”
Kariel looked at the earth god with a puzzled expression.
The earth god put on a bitter expression.
-Because we cannot avoid an invasion from another dimension alone.
Kariel’s expression darkened at the words of the earth god.
It was clear that it was intentionally shown.
Families who guaranteed a happy environment and safety at the cost of rolling here.
They were doing their best to adapt to the environment of the earth that has now changed.
At least, they lived in abundance thanks to the consideration of the god of the earth, but the monsters that came out through the gate like here were a great threat to their survival.
“As I promised with Baldr, I have given your family powers under my authority. However, we cannot guarantee complete safety.”
Since the invasion of another dimension had begun, the gods of the earth had to nurture talented humans around them.
– So, go to Earth yourself and protect your family.
At the words of the Earth God, Kariel stared blankly at his old family with a firm expression on his face.
They were wealthy families, but they were feeling threatened with their lives every time because of the monsters that came over from the gate.
I also saw the appearance of cute nephews who were married.
-Will you sign a contract with me?
The earth god smiled and held out his hand, thinking he had passed it all.
And Kariel, who was staring at it, smiled bitterly and stretched out his arm toward his outstretched hand.
It was when the Earth God put a smile on his face as he looked at Kariel’s slowly outstretched arms.
Kariel raises one corner of her mouth as the Earth God taps her outstretched hand.
“Where do you sell drugs?”
Seeing Kariel’s expression, the earth god kicked his tongue and made a chair in the air and sat with his legs crossed arrogantly.
-Are you going to abandon your family?
“I’m already dead, what can I do for you?”
– Can I go back?
If the already dead son comes back and claims he is the son, he doesn’t believe it and now it’s just a family from the past.
Life on Earth is over, now it’s time to focus on this world.
– If you want, you can make your family believe in you.
“Will you give me a return?”
At Kariel’s question, the Earth God’s expression hardened.
Simply convincing the family to believe that Kariel is their family is brainwashing.
So, if Kariel returned to Earth, he wanted to ‘return’.
‘I can’t do that.’
It is Kariel who knows how much Baldr was overworked while returning herself.
Even before the invasion of another dimension has begun, will you be able to return to a situation where the barrier between dimensions has collapsed?
How much power must the Earth God expend to do that?
-You seem to have no regrets about life on Earth.
“Now this is my home.”
In response to Kariel’s answer, the Earth God spoke seriously with a completely abandoned expression.
-Let’s form an alliance.
The earth god, who was trying to trick him into eating this world, changed his stance and offered to negotiate with Kariel.
– You and I are holding hands. To be precise, it belongs to %@$^&.
Kariel, who had not yet ascended to the ranks of the gods, could not hear the voice of the earth god, perhaps because it was unknown information.
But I could barely know.

Just as there are many countries on the continent, so are the dimensions.
And now the dimension was in full swing.
“I am not a god.”
Kariel rejects the earth god’s offer.
When he refused because he had not yet ascended to the ranks of gods, the earth god narrowed his eyes and said:
-If you want, I will help you become a god. So come in %@$^&.
“He also refuses.”
At the successive rejections of Kariel, the expression of the Earth God hardened.
-Have you already received other offers?
-… … Then why?
The Earth God tilted his head and asked.
Even Kariel knew that he had made the offer out of pure intention to help, but he had no choice but to reject it.
It comes from the other party’s favor, but it’s because you don’t know what kind of restrictions this will come up with later.
This may be ok for now, but it could become a shackle and drag you around later. Above all, at this point in time, it was dangerous to rush hand in hand with someone.
I didn’t know what the earth god belonged to or where it was in the interdimensional war, but I couldn’t hold hands.
“If you come up with an offer again later, think about it then. But not yet.”
Seeing Kariel refusing with a single knife, the earth god clicked his tongue once more.
Considering the breadth of Kariel’s growth, the possibility of becoming a god was high.
The human race that grows around him will also quickly become stronger, so the value of this dimension will rise vertically as well.
The earth god noticed that right away and tried to preoccupy it.
But Kariel wasn’t in a hurry.
– In the future, you won’t be able to block things as easily as you do now.
-As long as you don’t belong anywhere, you can aim for this place everywhere.
Kariel nodded at the earth god’s heartfelt advice.
Clearly, this decision had the potential to be a risk-inducing choice. But despite this, Kariel was confident.
“On the other hand, if our value goes up, there will be more people like you who want to partner with us.”
-… … .
“If you prematurely belong to a faction without proper growth, there is a high possibility that you will only be used and thrown out.”
The war between the dimensions, the war of the gods, is called, but in fact, the root of it was not different from the general conflict.
If he did not have the strength, there was a high possibility that he would end up being used only by being used in any huge faction.
Surely, if we join hands with the earth god now, we may be able to secure temporary stability. But in a world without gods, how long will they protect this place that has become the prey of another dimension?
Surely, there might be some people who want to make a deal in return for this place.
“Above all, there is too little information right now.”
It was impossible to hold hands in the absence of any information.
That’s why Kariel decided to walk a tightrope while taking risks.
– You must know that tightrope walking is dangerous, right?
“know. But I also know that there is no growth without risk.”
You cannot grow by only pursuing stability.
Why is this world growing so rapidly right now?

Just as war and chaos repeat.
In particular, since there is no god, it grows more rapidly as many resources are supplied and demanded due to the numerous other dimensions invading.
A crisis is an opportunity.
‘We grow rapidly while maintaining a neutral position. At the same time, from a high position, we decide for ourselves.’
Seeing Kariel who had made up his mind like that, the earth god did not give up and entice him.
He secretly released the information he had, threatened him, and tried to convince him by saying that he would provide the secret between the dimensions and a clue to rise to the ranks of the gods.
But Kariel’s heart was firm.
-Ehh… … I lost again.
“Did you lose?”
The moment the earth god took a deep breath, the white space began to crumble as time ran out.
– Evil bastard. No, no. It’s all because of this guy.
ordinary people in their own world.
However, Baldr chose and brought Kariel, and the result was a series of defeats for the Earth God.
– Protect the world until the end… … .
A god who did not abandon the perishing world to the end.
Unlike ordinary gods, the foolish god who was prepared to annihilate once again triumphed over the god of the earth.
The cost of trying to swallow the world by deceiving the ignorant Kariel was harsh.
– I’ll have to sleep for a while.
The earth god, who had been deprived of a lot of power in successive defeats, waved his arms with a sigh.
At that moment, strange patterns began to form on the body of the Earth God.
[God won the bet. Since there is no party who made the bet, an agent designated by the party receives the reward instead!]
A dry voice that hadn’t been seen since Baldr disappeared.
At the same time, the figure of the earth god slowly disappeared into the fog, and at the same time, Kariel also lost consciousness and was sucked into somewhere.
“This place… … .”
The gray gate that sucked him in.
However, it no longer emits a gray light.
“Did gray mean neutral or trading?”
Looking at the gate, now turning purple, Kariel muttered and sighed.
Rejecting the Earth God’s offer, all that was left was war.
“Duke Dave, my clear order… … .”
When Duke Daveer, who was running towards him, answered with his head bowed, Cariel tilted his head.
“It is already. It has been two months since Your Majesty entered the gate!”
“ah… … .”
Realizing that a lot of time had passed again, just like when he met Baldr, Cariel smiled bitterly and walked with Duke Dave to the Gray Shields that were waiting for him in the distance.
“What else has changed a lot, isn’t it?”
“… … It has changed a lot.”
Duke Davier answered Cariel’s words with hesitation.
“excreta… … What do you mean?”
At Duke David’s words, Kariel tilted her head.
And after a while, Kariel was astonished when she saw the contents of the video sphere.
“I’ll have to check it myself.”
At Kariel’s command, airships from the special forces flew in all at once. Kariel headed east despite knowing that she was anxiously waiting for her at the imperial palace after hearing the news of the emperor’s return.
And there, Kariel had to stand there blankly for a long time with a shocked look on her face.
