Wooong chic chic

The power returned to Valen within just 0.1 seconds. Fortunately we had learned from the previous mistakes and set up some fail safes.

“What is the result?”

“40% of their facilities have been destroyed, and their planetary shield is down.They have scrambled a fleet of ships to intercept us and are hailing us on over a million channels.”

“Good, open a line it’s time to negotiate.”

—-Boop!

A hologram appeared on the bridge.

“Who are you  and why have you attacked us?”

The Rohim representative spoke out in embarrassment, his skin a shiny gray color and only a single large black eye.

“I am Johra, the Avenger of humanity which you have pushed to near extinction. I am here to collect the debt for your actions.”

“What are you talking about? We are peaceful beings which have for eons watched, protected and nurtured all life across the universe.”

“Are you now denying that you killed humankind and all life on my home planet?”

“Of course, we have never committed such an act, how could you claim we’ve done such a thing?”

“How noisy… show them the evidence.”

“Transfer complete.”

“Wha…what? Why have the priests done this?”

“Have you properly confirmed your actions? Just know before your deaths the your miscalculation was me! Prepare the Extinction gun.”

“This can’t be, we are the protectors of life across the universe! This must be a misunderstanding!”

“Divert all power to begin charging the weapon, begin the activation sequence.”

“Johra please don’t do this, we were also deceived. We didn’t intervene because the God’s servants perceived your race’s demise as a natural disaster. Please spare us and we will deliver you the priests responsible for this!”

“Shut up! Where was humanity’s chance to be spared?”

‘Too cool!’

Just as I heard Gnoss’s compliment through our telepathy, we detected a massive projectile coming our way, originating from planet Asgard.

“Johra that’s the enemy’s fire.”

“Can we withstand it?”

“If we are hit there is a 70% chance of sustaining critical damage.”

“Got it, then take evasive action.”

“Launching the teleport circle in 3 seconds.”

Teleport teleport teleport

Valen easily dodged the projectile by teleporting away, while their fleet continued to close in to engage.

“Continue to divert all power to charging the Extinction.”

“Zaira, it’s time to shoot!”

I urged Zaira to shoot as soon as possible.

“Target is locked.”

The gun’s trajectory appeared on my display screen.

“Charging is at 94%”

The charging gauge appeared before me.

“Amplification control On!”

“Releasing the safety locks!”

“Johra! We’ll reward to you…”

I cut off all communications with them because at this point it was only a distraction.

Huu WOong!

Time seem to stop all around me.

“Lena, are you there?”

-No Answer-

‘Gnoss?’

Still there wasn’t any answer.

Even Valen’s systems seemed frozen, everything except for me had stopped.

“Should I call you Johra?”

An existence covered in gray feathers appeared before me.

“Who the hell are you?”

“Would you even recognize my name? I have some many of them,…”

he approached with his gray poker face, I was completely unable to read his expression.

When I tried, I couldn’t move my own body. Likewise my skills and magic weren’t working otherwise I would have really liked to sock him in the face.

“Are you Metatron?”

It was the name from Zaira’s report.

“Yes I have gone by that name. On your world I may be known as prometheus, when I taught man how to harness the power of fire.”

“Your that god which escaped from those High Gods right?”

“Ooh… how did you know about that? Let’s take a look… and Undead? And you aren’t a part of this universe. Ah, and magic how interesting.”

“Why did you have to do that to the human race?”

“Well, humans were just an experiment of mine. I tried to make them just as the High Gods did in  the other world. Unfortunately despite my hard work it was failure because they couldn’t use magic.”

“Wha…What? Just an experiment?”

“Yes, I wanted to create an army to get my revenge against the High Gods, but these Rohim are too peaceful a people and their magic knowledge  is nonexistent. They’re only useful as caretakers of other species. As you well know, it is interesting how in the other world, humans how power over magic, and can eventually grow up to even threaten the gods themselves. For this reason I created and nurtured humanity, so that one day I would be strong enough to get my revenge on the other gods.

“How could you treat human beings like that?”

“I just nudged things a certain way, pushing them to be a creative and imaginative race, susceptible to learning magic.”

“Then your purpose was to use them to fight the High Gods?”

“Yes, I suppose so. This is a dimension which the council of High Gods have forsaken. Even after having run away here for so many eons they never chased me here. I’ve been carefully preparing my revenge and my plan has several contingencies.”

“What are you talking about?”

“Earth is the closest point of contact between the two dimensions and also the first place I appeared when I arrived to this universe. However I flew to the opposite side of it, fearing the other God’s pursuit, finally arriving here at Asgard.

“So the first thing you had in mind was to nurture your own forces?”

“Right, But these Rohim were too peaceful, and cared only for sustaining life across the universe. So after some time I tried to reach out once again to the Earthlings.”

“Although I also hate the High Gods, the way you play around with the lives of those under you makes me sick.”

“But what are you going to do about it? I’m the God of this universe, are you trying to start up a small rebellion against me?.”

Metatron grabbed my forehead with his grayish hand, I struggled but he just had a cold smile plastered on his face.

“Ugh…You!”

I understand your hatred for me which you hold deep in your heart, but you’ll have to get in line. There are thousands of people out to get me so wait your turn.

“I will surely get you back for this!”

“Hmm… revenge against me? It would be a bit troublesome to deal with such a dangerous creature such a yourself, even if I kill you now you would just revive….”

“While I truly hated him, I kept a cool mind and was actually trying to get a good grasp of the limits to his power. So far his ability to stop time was absolute and could subdue me perfectly. He didn’t attack me yet and doesn’t appear to have the power to prevent my revival. I just needed to use these limitations against him.

“I may not be able to touch you now, but someday I will surely seal you and send you to the the Abyss”

“Well… how about this? You are simply annoying to keep in my universe, why don’t I just send you back to where you came from?”

“Metatron!”

He had a smug expression on his face. Although he was going to inadvertently help me to get back to the world i wanted to return to, I still bore a grudge against him.

“Remember me? I’ll be back!”

“Oops. how scary! Right! I can do about it, time to make you once again start the long grind up to the top.”

“What… Metatron?”

He once again reached out to me and appeared to activate some power.

Shooot

Soon after everything around me went dark.

Chomp chomp

When I finally opened my eyes, I was once again an undead skeleton, stuck in the middle of nowhere.

‘Damn, restarting again! How many times has it been now?’

I opened up my status page.

I laughed out loud all by myself.

‘Metatron you didn’t delete my modified spells, Ha ha ha’

Although I had been reset to a regular skeleton soldier, I still had my Creation Magic and Resurrection Song skills.

‘Now that I’m back in this world, it’ll be a bit hard if I meet the High Gods as I am now.’

‘Create Hidden Status’

[You have Learned Hidden Status]

The skill was displayed in Gold.

‘How about we try being something other than an undead for the time being’

‘Create Species conversion (Human)’

[Your race has been changed to Human.]

I basked in a gentle white light as the message appeared.

“Just that, am I human now?”

When the flash of light disappeared I could see my human hands.

”What about my legs? My face?”

I looked around and then ran towards the closest stream.

“Haha! Isn’t that the same face I had back on Earth?”

Shoong

Suddenly from behind me a large bright circle appeared.

“What is….”

From within it an enormous Angel with a flaming sword stepped out. It had 16 wings and was even bigger than Michael was.

‘Damn, an Angel appeared. How did they find me so fast?’

“The use of forbidden magic was detected in this area. What are you doing here human?”

I shook my head trying to appear ignorant. It seemed that for the moment the Angel could only see me as a regular human.

“Hmm… Johra, Chompy, Human. It’s not like you have any spells you can use, but should I purify you just in case?”

‘Did it look at my Status page? Luckily it appears to only be able to see the one shown by my Hidden Status ability.’

“No, although it is an insignificant being, it is afterall one of god’s creation. It appears that Uriels Magic Sensors are off, so I’ll have to go back and talk to her about it. Don’t speak a word about what you’ve seen here today, else you’ll die a gruesome death.”

I nodded back with a panicked expression and the Angel and his burning sword disappeared into the bright circle form where it came.

‘Damn, what are forbidden spells? I have no way of knowing, but I definitely can’t deal with the Angels in the state I am now. I have no choice but to seal all the spells I just created.’

Making that promise to myself I opened up my Status.

“Weird, why did I keep Water Creation but keep no Class?”

I was ready to begin walking, but with a bitter smile I realized that my human body was completely naked.

“I should probably find some clothes.”

I explored around for some time before finding a small farmhouse. Sneaking in I stole the clothes I needed.

“Sorry, I’ll pay off this debt someday.”

Two days later I arrived at what looked like a small city. I had no choice but to eat some grass to stave of the hunger. Fortunately, I could create water and didn’t have to go thirsty.

“Ugh I’m starving, should I try to beg for food in the city?”

I tried to go in but I was blocked by the guards at the entrance.

“I haven’t seen your face in these parts before. What business to you have in Gartmar?”

“Gart…mar?”

It was a name I couldn’t forget.

“Yes, it has just recently been recognized as a city. Have you heard the name before?”

“What day are we now? What year?”

“Poor guy, don’t you even know what year it is?”

I was speechless after hearing the guard’s response, I had returned 20 years before the time I had been killed by Michael.

KKorrrc

“Hey are you hungry? Although you look like a beggar, I’ll let you in because Gartmar’s promotion festival is still underway. Just make sure not to tell anyone it was me who let you through alright?”

I was able to enter the city due to the kind heartedness of the guard. It was just as he had said, the festival was still ongoing and I took advantage to eat some bread which the bakery’s owner had discarded to the side.

I was in direct competition with a group of other beggars, but because it was a festive atmosphere, there was enough to go around.

“Please help me out with some coins.”

I was trying to collect the two silvers necessary to apply in the adventurer’s guild, and figured that this festival was the best chance because many people were in a charitable mood.

Ting-

However that was something that only happened in fairy tales and in this reality people weren’t as generous. I had no choice but to resort to other methods.

“Hey, what are you trying to do?”
