There Are Many Possessors in This Romance Fantasy chapter 23
23. Ending of Ending
The game called Ending of Ending was suddenly popular one day even though it was released without any publicity. Like a dry mountain caught on fire, it spread through word of mouth in an instant and spread at an incomprehensible speed.
That game was nothing special compared to other games. Multiple endings to common story-type games. A gloomy view of the world mixed with the subject matter of romance fantasy. If you make a wrong choice, it is a choice that will go to destruction.
Like a fad that flashes and disappears for a while, I thought this game would be the same. However, just like when the game was released, a novel version suddenly came out, was made into a webtoon, and a seasonal drama or prequel movie was made. Even though no one wanted to make it, it continued to be covered in various media based on the game.
At the time when the trend became fixed, and people recognized that it was natural for the ip of the end of extinction to continue to appear.
Incidents occurred around the world on the same day and at the same time.
X month XX, 20XX. 11 PM Korean time. At that time, an incident occurred in which all the people who were consuming the contents of the end of extinction died suddenly.
At first, I dismissed it as a coincidence, and I was busy ignoring a few odd opinions here and there. At that time, governments around the world concluded the case with sudden death as if they had kissed each other.
And three years later, the same day and the same time. This time, there were people who were in a vegetative state, breathing only as if their spirit had gone out. Voices of anxiety and dissatisfaction grew, and people who distanced themselves from the end of extinction appeared, but it did not last long. People began to fall into the end of extinction again as if possessed, and the government did not take any measures, leaving only the word that it would investigate.
In the end, all those who became vegetative died after three years. The issue surfaced in the news for a while, but no one was watching the news. As if he was addicted to drugs, he was busy consuming the extinction ending when he had time to spare.
And the day after the people who became vegetative died. Again, on the same day, at the same time, only this time in Korea, some people became vegetative, but no one paid any attention. It was just left unattended after being transferred to the hospital due to the government’s show operation.
But after 3 days, when the consciousness of the people who became vegetative people returned, the frenzy of extinction ended like a lie. The people who regained consciousness muttered incomprehensible words and then committed suicide or shouted madly while consuming the extinction ending.
If you listen carefully to their story, you will find that they repeat the same sound over and over again.
[I experienced that world. I can do better this time. Send it again. I’m not a failure.]
It was such a big topic that it became an issue and even rumors circulated around the world, but it was gradually forgotten. For those who have regained their daily lives, it is just a terrible nightmare that they don’t want to hear about the end of extinction anymore.
One day I heard that all but one of the people who had regained consciousness had committed suicide.
The extinction ending has disappeared from people’s daily lives.
“The Ending Ending deserves to be highly praised as a game itself. There were countless choices to choose from, and there were countless endings accordingly. The problem is that most of them ended up leading to the end of the world.”
Froden loosened his grip on her neck. He looked at Froden, bewildered by his sudden freedom, but he silently returned to his seat and leaned back.
I was afraid of his gaze as he stared down at me with indifferent eyes. His self-confidence, which he prided himself on as the protagonist, was ruthlessly trampled by violence stronger than himself.
“Looks like I am the only one who knows how this world will end. I am a person who has cleared this game countless times. If you believe in me and give me strength, I can prevent destruction.”
I gnashed my teeth and pinched his thighs, overcoming fear through pain. If you get frustrated here, you really die. Because the world is destroyed
“Why should I believe that absurd story? You may be lying.”
“I’m not lying about my life. Trust me. Most of the ways to prevent destruction are impossible without you.”
“What if that is also a lie?”
That’s what he said, but Froden knew the story was true. It was too detailed for a lie he spun out on the spot, and most of all, it was because the magic tool to determine lies was telling the truth.
But just because the story so far is true doesn’t mean she’s told everything. There must be information that is hiding something. Unless you’re an idiot, you won’t be able to reveal all the information.
“If I told you something in the future, would you believe it if it actually happened?”
“I’ll believe you if that really happens.”
“In the next week, someone will come up and talk to you. I don’t know about looks. It’s because it’s always different every time it comes out. But what they sell is the same. Among the things he sells are soft skulls. Buy it and carry it with you.”
“Is there any reason to buy it?”
Elin swallowed her saliva. She should say those words to that bad-tempered person who would be offended by anyone hearing them. It’s good if you don’t get neck or sleepy again.
“Because… Whoa. You will die soon.”
She spat out those words and involuntarily closed her eyes tightly. But she opened her eyes gently when she felt no pain after a while.
Froden closed her eyes as she sat still on the spot. She seemed lost in thought, so Elin couldn’t bear to call him. What should I do if I get angry when my thoughts are broken?
“How am I going to die?”
“I need to know in what way I will die so that I will not believe and buy that skeleton.”
“You… Get a disease that can never be cured by forbidden magic. If she gets the disease, she bleeds to death from the pores all over her body a week later.”
“It’s like a curse.”
There was a flashing memory in Froden’s mind.
“Is it the curse of witches?”
“…Yes, that’s right.”
Apart from personality, it is clear that this person is also intelligent. He only noticed the fragmentary clues of information that he hadn’t been told to unpack on purpose.
“You don’t even flinch now.”
“Then you’re only talking half-heartedly before you know it. Now that his personality has been exposed, he doesn’t even have to hide it anymore, is this?”
I didn’t answer. It is true that Froden’s way of speaking respectfully even to commoners was to hide it.
“Why do witches want to kill me?”
There is no need to tell stories that are not nutritious anymore. It’s time to exchange and receive the information you want. Of course, he didn’t want to give the possessor the information he had, but he couldn’t help it.
“Because you become too strong in the future. Enough to get in the way of their purpose.”
“I thought witches could only use curses, but can she try the future?”
“They say nothing is impossible if you pay the price. In the future, it will cost a lot to kill you, but the price to pay to kill you now is not high. I’m killing you for the sake of the future.”
I remembered the witch imprisoned underground. The b*tch who cursed Tina and created a terrible situation where two souls coexist.
“There is a witch imprisoned underground. Is there any way to use that b*tch?”
“It’s better to stop thinking about using witches to do something.”
“She knows that the witch’s curse is one per person. Now the witch has placed one of her curses on it. Even if I use this as bait, is there any way to utilize the witch?”
“I don’t know who said such nonsense, but as long as a witch’s curse comes at a price, she has no limits in using it.”
Cold sweat broke out on Froden’s back at her words. Hoping that the fleeting hypothesis would not be correct, she moved her steps with her pale face.
Ellin, who was staring blankly at Froden, who suddenly moved rapidly, hurriedly followed him. I don’t know what’s going on, but a feeling of uneasiness crept in.
The damp environment unique to the underground greeted them. As I descended the stairs, I saw an environment full of iron bars. Froden went inside without hesitation, as if the sight was familiar. Elin was busy following him without saying a word, trembling with anxiety.
A scene inside a prison where you can feel the sense of use. Judging from the lack of warmth, it looked like a prison where the person inside had long since left.
Froden’s face was distorted at the sight of the prison without anyone. Her fists were thrown, and the bars of the prison were shattered. A violent sound echoed through the basement.
A low-pitched swearing with a lot of emotion was heard. Elin’s body atrophied as the deadly pain pierced her whole body like needles. A violent force is pressing down on her underground.
“Yes. Can you explain the forbidden magic once again?”
Her eyes of a madman filled with murder were glaring at Elin. Her tense and frightened body curled up. In her crawling voice, Elin followed her.
“This, this… This world was destroyed by that, forbidden magic… I explained to you, right?”
