My head was confused.
I looked down at the boy with my eyes focused everywhere.
What the hell was that?
The boy’s appearance was clearly the same as the one he had seen in the flashing memory.
Interrupting the match was just an action close to instinct.
My intuition was telling me that these siblings should not be allowed to die like this…
Come to think of it, I think I had felt this kind of feeling once before, not just this time, but when was it?
I could recall the memory as I furrowed my brows.
When I used the box of chaos and entered the game for the first time.
At that time, an unknown voice resounded along with the dizziness of the world turning upside down.
[Do not give up.]
···Yes, that’s it.
It’s definitely the same as I felt then.
It was as if I had glimpsed a future that had not yet happened, but might have occurred someday.
My head got more confused about what the hell happened, but that’s not what’s important right now, so I put it off temporarily.
After the agitation went away and reason came back, I understood what I was doing now.
I lifted my hand from holding on to her and turned my gaze to the Tyrant.
The guy was staring at this side with the most ferociously distorted face.
It looked like he’s really pissed off because I interrupted and ruined a show he made with care.
I only stepped forward to stop Reef from killing herself, but it ended up being a face-to-face confrontation with the Tyrant. It was even in front of this huge crowd.
···What should I do now?
I probably would regret it later, but I couldn’t undo what I had already done.
Amid such a complex situation, a sense of uneasiness that still lingered in my mind, and these unknown emotions, I opened my mouth and said;
“End this game, Sixth Lord.”
Silence fell throughout the arena.
The spectators were staring at the Tyrant, even holding their breath.
The one who was staring at me with eyes full of rage that could not be hidden opened his mouth.
“What are you trying to do right now, Seventh Lord?”
···I don’t know either, damn it.
If I thought about it rationally, I was doing something stupid right now.
I ruined another Lord’s event in order to save one a pair of siblings who I barely knew.
However, the decision was solidified soon .
This time, I was just going to do what I wanted.
Take them out of here alive.
If it had anything to do with this unknown phenomenon that just happened to me, leaving them to die was probably not a good option.
I said after exchanging glances with the Tyrant.
“I’ll take these two with me.”
He had an expression full of absurdity. His anger was obviously boiling now.
“Tell me if there is a way to cure light blood disease.”
“If you tell me the cure and hand over these two to me, I will consider this as a debt and pay it back later.”
At least, the only cure I knew of was the death of the Tyrant, but the other might know other methods.
Of course, I knew that this wasn’t a suggestion, it’s almost an order.
Still, I had to do this.
If there was a way to end this situation in a gentle way, of course, I had to choose that way.
“Heh, heh heh…”
But it also didn’t seem to matter.
He burst into laughter, then raised his head and laughed loudly, then slowly stopped the sound.
The man lowered his head again and opened his mouth with a smirk in his eyes.
“You’re out of your mind. Is that all you dare to say after ruining my event?!”
A thick cloud of dust rose with the explosion of a huge energy.
With the floating veil that had been opened in a narrow reaction of my super-sensory, I looked around.
Three gigantic marks, as if scratched by a beast, divided the arena in half.
Screams and commotions erupted from all sides. It was seen that the spectators caught up in the attack had died in large numbers. People running away in confusion and fear.
Suddenly, the Tyrant rose from his seat and was spewing out so much blood that it gave the illusion that the surrounding air was dyed red.
Asher, who came downstairs and stood beside me, looked at me with a hardened face.
I looked at Reef, who still had a puzzled expression on her face, and the boy who had fallen.
“Take these two of you and leave here.”
“···Yes, I understand.”
Asher nodded and immediately ran out of the arena, holding the two in her arms.
I turned my gaze back to the Tyrant.
“This is not it, Seventh Lord. Don’t you think you’ve crossed the line?
The man, who was releasing his vicious blood, roared and said.
“This is my territory. You need to respect my way. If I had visited yours, I would have respected your way. Yet, ruining the game I worked hard for myself right in front of my eyes? You can’t disrespect me like that!”

There was nothing wrong with his every word.
Of course, that was if I only considered the law of the Lords not fighting and killing each other.
“Apologize formally to me and bring those siblings back, Seventh Lord. Kill them right in front of me with your own hands. Then I’ll forget this ever happened.”
I ignored his words and looked at the level above his head.
The unique blood magic that amplified physical abilities, and was a superhuman close to pure physical strength.
···I could roughly do it.
After thinking about it, I said again.
“Tell me the cure for light blood disease.”
He seemed to have realized just then that I had no intention of changing my attitude.
The man who twisted the corners of his lips slowly dyed his body red.
“They said that you killed the warrior in one blow?”
In an instant, with the sound of an explosion, his new form reached me in an instant.
I opened the floating veil again and closed my fists. The entire surrounding ground turned over, and rocks were scattered in the air.
It had a different level of destructive power than when I had previously blocked the strike of the Orc King.
After teleporting to the other side of the arena, I performed blood magic and floated drops of my blood into the air.
The guy who turned his head and looked at me, frowned and muttered.
Because I was not a vampire, he probably couldn’t understand how I could use blood magic.
There was no reason to answer that question. He also rushed towards me again, as if it didn’t matter.
Fortunately, he approached me, ignoring the drops of blood floating around me, and swung his fist.
The attack was again blocked by the veil, and his body was exposed to the drops of my blood.
I teleported into the air again. A tornado of blood rose straight up like a dragon from below, and it, too, was blocked by the veil.
“You have an annoying ability!”
I escaped and defended using the right mix of space leap and floating veil, and he continued to pursue me and fire attacks on me.
The Tyrant basically belonged to the physical type of super being like the Mad King, but he not only fought purely physically but also used blood magic.
Every time the Tyrant’s power or blood rushed in, one side of the stadium collapsed in shock. The spectators who could not get out yet were killed in droves.
As the rushing attack became faster and stronger, a thick fog of blood erupted from his body and covered the entire area.
I felt dizzy, and as soon as I teleported, I barely blocked the blood magic of the man who flew in.
Slowly, I was reaching my limit of responding to his attacks.
Even the super sensory that was raised to the maximum seemed to be insufficient to respond to the speed of a level 94 superman.
If the floating veil or space leap were abilities with even a slight delay in activation, my body would have been already torn apart.
“How long are you going to run away like a mouse?”
He looked at me floating in the air with my floating veil open and roared with equal momentum.
The only thing I could do against that monster was to defend and run away. Unless I killed him.
So, as a safety device, I spread my blood from time to time in the middle of the fight and buried my blood in him.
Because if I could no longer block his attacks, I had to just kill him instantly.
I wouldn’t even start a fight with that monster if I didn’t believe I could do that.
And besides instant kill, there was one more thing I believed in.
Gascalid’s blood magic that had been activated on him since the beginning of the battle.
Gascalid’s level was 95 while he was alive, and the Tyrant’s level was 94.
It didn’t seem to take effect yet, because the level difference between the two was too small…
- ··Come.After a certain moment, power slowly flowed into my body.
I defended myself with only the floating veil.
The momentum of the Tyrant who had been pouring out blood magic just below me began to slowly subside.
Slowly, the other who sensed that something was strange stopped attacking and looked at me with a puzzled expression.
“What is this…?”
Even amid this, the energy flowing into my body was growing exponentially stronger every moment.
I came back down to the ground and stood facing the Tyrant.
The bewildered vampire asked me.
“What the f*ck did you do?”
The other, with a distorted look, roared wildly and ran towards me.
But his attacks were no longer as powerful as before, nor fast enough to be unresponsive.
I leisurely dodged and blocked his attack, waiting for the riot to end.
The interesting thing was that his level information was also changed in real time as his power was taken away.
I could see that his level reflected the power of his attacks.
And when his level continued to go down and down, he was now much lower than Asher.
“This human bastard! What the hell did you do to my body?”
The vampire growled and cried out.
I slowly approached him, feeling the unprecedented power that filled my body. He turned pale and stepped back.
He turned around and ran away.
I looked at the back of that guy and then stamped my foot on the ground.
With a single step, the distance between us shortened in an instant.
He hurriedly raised his arm to defend himself, but it was in vain.
Even if I was a novice who had never had a physical fight, there’s already a wall between me and him that couldn’t be overcome.
The guy who was hit by my fist flew away and crashed into the rubble of the collapsed stadium.
I looked around, shaking my hands a little, and picked up the sword that had fallen to the floor. It was Reef’s sword.
I walked over to the wriggling vampire on the floor and pointed the blade at his neck.
“What is the cure for light blood disease?”
As if he hadn’t imagined being defeated like this, the guy who was making a futile expression burst into laughter as if he had lost his mind.
“There’s no such thing.”
“If you don’t tell me, I will kill you.”
“No, you bastard! No! No matter what you do, that bastard is dead anyway!”
“Stop with nonsensical threats. Let’s put it at the next Lords’ meeting. This one was obviously your fault!”
I sighed and looked up at the sky.
- ··After all, was there really no other way?
It was a futile effort to subdue him, and in the end, it meant that there was only one option from the beginning.
When I said nothing, he slowly stopped talking and looked up at me.
“Actually, there is a way.”
“It’s a very simple method. You just need to die. Then the light blood disease will completely disappear from this continent.”
He looked at me stupidly and then opened his mouth.
“What kind of bullshit are you talking about, that if I die, it will cure the light blood disease? How can you be so sure?”
Because it was mentioned in the game.
Even if I explained it, he wouldn’t be able to understand it, anyway.
I looked down at him coldly.
The guy swallowed his saliva and said.
“Are you really going to kill me? A Lord killing another Lord?”
“Come on, wait. Wait a minute. Are you going to turn Calderic into an enemy? The Overlord is going to take your life herself! You’re going to kill me right now for those bastards…!”
The blade slammed down, and his head rolled on the floor.
“Well, the dead don’t have to worry about that.”
