Chapter 202: The Despair of the Ancient Hero Part 2

The Despair of the Ancient Hero Part 2

Several days have passed since I was assigned to be Ios’ personal guard.

As I was walking down the hallway I saw Odis worried.

—I don’t know what’s going on. I am totally bewildered.

He was pacing up and down the hallway with his arms crossed.

He looked very confused.

He didn’t even realize I was near him.

By the way, Odis is a level 70,000 demon king.

I also secretly aspired to his status.

Speaking of which, I haven’t seen Ios in the past few days.

I wonder if it has something to do with his attitude.

—How can I help you, Odis-sama?

—Ah, it’s you… No, you can’t do anything, don’t worry.

—Please talk to me. I can help you, if you want.

—…All right, I’ll trust you, even if you’re just a simple buffoon. Ios hasn’t returned from his trip.

I knew it, I couldn’t help but chuckle to myself. This is a great opportunity for me.

—Where did he go?

—He didn’t tell me. Occasionally he goes off on his own to wander somewhere, but this is the first time you haven’t been back for such a long period of time. If only I had accompanied him…

—…Heh, so that nasty monster is in trouble.

I was shocked for a few seconds.

Did I just say that?

My lips seemed to move on their own.

It was such a strange feeling, as if someone other than me had used my MOUTH to speak.

—What did you just say?!

—Huh?! Nooo, nothing nothing…

Odis, who was extremely angry, pressed his hands against my neck.

It is natural for this to happen.

He is a loyal servant of Ios, and he would never allow anyone to say anything stupid about his master. He will not hesitate to kill even a favored clown.

I am slowly beginning to lose consciousness. I think I will die…

It was then that the sound of a broken neck rang out.

《Notice: Resuscitation activated. You have three lives left 》

For a brief moment, consciousness seems distant, and quickly I am alive again.

Odis tilts his head dubiously.

—I thought I’d killed you, maybe I’ve been too gentle with you.

I have to do something.

If I don’t act quickly, I’ll lose all my chances of coming back to life.

I have to try to persuade him. It’s not a good idea to fight him.

—What! What is this?!?

—What do you mean?

The tentacles reach out and pierce Odis’ abdomen.

I’m not doing anything. Somehow, it’s my armor that has a consciousness of its own.

—I knew you had approached His Majesty with a purpose!

—Aaaghh…

His hand knife pierced through my abdomen.

Suddenly, a large amount of blood drips on the ground.

《Notice: Resuscitation activated. You have two lives left 》

As soon as he pulled out his knife, just as if it were a monster, the hole in my abdomen regenerated itself.

The speed of regeneration amazes Odis.

—What’s going on? I can’t believe a clown like you has such an ability, who are you really?

The tentacles were sucking Odis’ vitality, making his face thinner and thinner.

—Odis-sama?!

Several soldiers rush to the scene.

But the tentacles acted quickly and rushed at them to equally corner them to suck their stats and vitality.

—Sain?!

In my blurred consciousness, I saw Celtina running towards me.

And in turn, the tentacles catch Celtina. It seems that it’s not enough for them to have Odis and the soldiers, they want anyone who gets in their way.

—Sai—….

My armor bubbles and swells.

A large black flower blooms on my back.

At the same time, a huge mouth opened in the center and swallowed Celtina in the blink of an eye.

—This time, die!

Odis proceeds to thrust his great sword against my chest. Immediately, great flames appear from the blade of the sword, causing the fire to burn me from the inside.

The ensuing explosion blew me to pieces.

《 Notice: Resuscitation activated. You have one life left 》

But the next moment I was back to normal.

Odis trembles with fear.

—Impossible, your regenerative abilities look like black magic. Ios-sama, don’t come back, this guy will eat you…

Finally he was sucked like a mummy through the tentacles.

My armor is still swelling.

Even my body was engulfed, I’ve turned into something amorphous like slime.

Despite being swallowed, my vision was still reflecting my surroundings. It’s as if the whole armor was my eye.

Finally, I broke through the wall and crawled out.

The tentacles reach the soldiers gathered all over the place, and ingest them smoothly.

It feels like being in a dream. It doesn’t feel real, it feels terribly empty.

—Kill, kill. I want to kill them all… I want to take everything in the world. I want… Toru, I will kill you…

The voice emitting from the armor was not mine. It was as if someone had taken over me.

I don’t want that, I want to kill Toru with my own power. This is not the way I want to do it.

The body starts to take shape, my feet start to become thick and ugly legs.

The perspective of my vision started to grow, making the people on the ground look like dolls.

I… I’m starting to turn into a monster. No… I don’t want this.

My body starts to move on its own.

I escaped from Ios’ palace and crawled into the city, destroying everything I saw in my path.

As I passed through the streets, I continued to spread my tentacles and absorbed the vitality of all the people. In a matter of an hour, the whole city was in flames.

That day, the city disappeared from the map.
