REINCARNATION SIM GAME - Chapter 199 199 – Above the Sea
Scarlet opened her eyes as a mist portal appeared before her. The servant came down from the portal using the dog.
“A new Servant I’ve seen, huh?” The wizard raised an eyebrow.
“Stop it, Scarlet!” The servant gave a warning. “A lot of people will die!”
“I’ve made this ritual on the sea to minimize casualties. You’d better stop being Raymund’s follower. He is a God who cannot carry out his duties properly.” Scarlet responded with two pillars of light still hitting her. “Then, join me. I will absolutely grant the wish of most of the mortals in Levidna. Fewer people will suffer, and the world will be better.”
“No, you will only cause damage.” The servant let out a light that formed a giant sword in her hand. “We will stop you.”
“We?” Scarlet laughed. “No wonder you feel weird. It turns out that you are a combination of Raymund’s servants. I didn’t know he had this kind of ability.” The wizard also emitted two lights from her hands. “Bring it on! You can’t stop me.”
The server flew forward and swung her sword, but Scarlet could dodge quickly and shoot balls of light. The servant evades and slashes her sword, emitting crescent-shaped light energy like Olga’s.
This time Scarlet made a transparent milky white barrier. The barrier immediately broke as soon as it was hit by the servant’s attack, and Scarlet was bounced quite far. The energy transfer in the form of pillars of light hitting her body also disappeared.
Instead of attacking again, Scarlet flew away. The servant was chasing the enemy. However, suddenly a fish shaped like a giant whale came out of the sea and almost pounced on the servant’s body.
The servant increased her acceleration, and penetrated the giant fish’s body with ease, making the creature’s body hollow and fall into the sea again.
The wizard and the servant continued to fly upwards. Initially, the servant’s body began to freeze because the temperature dropped drastically. However, it only passed for a short time. Her body gave off a light that shattered the ice.
And they arrived in the silent darkness of outer space.
“Let me talk to you.” Scarlet’s voice didn’t come out of her mouth but went straight into the servant’s head. “We’re already in space. I can still do the ritual, although the time is much longer and may not be optimal. However, if I do it here, no mortal will die.”
The servant was silent and pointed her sword of light forward.
Scarlet was starting to look frustrated. “Those gods don’t care about mortal life. They were only afraid of a mortal who would be able to defeat them. They feel their very existence is threatened.”
The servant lowered her sword. Just like Scarlet, she also uses telepathy to communicate. “Would you be able to do it without killing lord Raymund?”
Scarlet narrowed her eyes. “No, even after I successfully perform this ritual, Raymund will die instantly. My only goal is to replace him as the God of hope.”
“Then this talk is pointless.” The servant raised her sword again.
The scarlet wizard’s mouth opened wide. “Why? He is a God who is abusive to his servants! What’s the matter….” She choked and laughed bitterly. “Oh, you love him…. Just like I used to be, despite his abusive behavior.”
“He’s not abusive anymore.” The servant replied. “And we believe he really cares about the people of this world.”
Scarlet raised her chin, then took out a light sword identical to the servant’s but more reddish in color. “Looks like we really can’t talk.”
The two then floated forward and swung their swords at each other. The two weapons touched each other and caused a silent explosion in space. They then retreated and continued to attack each other, causing a second, still inaudible explosion.
No one wants to give up. The two flew here and there, thrusting and slashing at each other. However, neither was on the upper hand.
I’m still watching the fight with anxious anticipation. Maybe I’m more worried about my servant’s existence than my well-being. If Scarlet wins, I’m not sure if my servant can recover.
They’ve all become a part of my life, and I’m not sure I can get rid of them.
“They are good servants. I want to get to know them better.” Lict took a deep breath. “Unfortunately, they will be gone after this, win or lose.”
The energy goddess’s words made my heart feel like it was going to explode. With an unbelievably stiff motion, I turned to the woman. “What? What did you say?”
Lict shrugged, showing no expression of fear or worry at all. “I said, your servant will die after this, despite winning or losing.”
Without thinking, I stretched out both my hands. A second later, my palm was already tightly choking the energy goddess’s neck.
However, my body felt a tremendous jolt, then it was thrown far away and landed on the floor. I felt no pain, but my body couldn’t get up. Just to move my head, I have to do it with incredible difficulty.
Levi was raising his hand. It seemed he was the one who sent me flying like this.
Anja ran to me and knelt next to me with teary eyes. “Sir Raymund, are you all right?”
“You have to remember, Raymund.” The supreme God spoke in a cold tone. “To us gods, servants are just tools. We can’t be too attached to them. Even Lict, who is new here, knows that.”
“No!!!” I objected with all my might. “My servant is not like that….”
My mouth closed tightly as soon as the supreme God clenched his fists. I can’t speak at all.
“If you’re just making a fuss, you’d better stay there.” The supreme God turned his back on me. “Let us oversee this fight. You must know that if Scarlet wins, then the bitch will reach the realm of God. There was a possibility that she would be able to increase her abilities many times over here. Do you know what that means? Our existence as true gods will be threatened. That does sound absurd. We are gods, yet we are afraid. But that’s how it is. There’s no point in hiding it anymore.”
The goddess of energy looked at me coldly, then faced my pond again.
“My apologies, Sir Raymund.” Anja starts shedding tears. “I don’t want to lose them all, but I can’t do anything in front of those gods.”
This cannot be allowed. I won’t give up. When all this is over, then my servants will disappear completely. They will not be able to return to the afterlife. That’s something very sad.
They will be erased from existence.
So, I forced my hand to move. I used all my willpower to do that simple thing. At first, my right hand just shook, but I could lift it a little after a while.
And finally, I can open my game UI screen.
However, my struggle is not over. While constantly watching the gods so as not to see me, I moved my fingers with difficulty.
I came to a UI that displayed my skill icons. There are still many that are gray and only a few that I have unlocked, both active and passive.
However, I will not use those. I keep scrolling down to the gray icons. Even when the screen has turned black, I’m still scrolling down.
I stopped when I found a skill that showed the logo of a person sticking their hands together, looking like a person praying.
Will I die after using this hidden skill? Or will I return to being a pathetic human in my world? Ah, it would be great if I returned to the real world. I already have a lot of money and have nothing to worry about.
Unfortunately, I can’t see them again. I couldn’t see Elise’s sweet awkwardness, Yua’s seductive gesture, Kimi’s quiet singing voice, Anja’s enthusiasm, and Lucy’s uplifting cheerfulness. Not to mention the existence of Mona and Ciel, which makes my life more colorful.
The thought caused my tears to fall. Anja rubbed it with her hand.
This game is very annoying. Who wants a sad ending like this? If I knew this, I wouldn’t have played this damn game.
Even so, I’m still happy. At least I can save my girls. If I live after this, I hope I will remember them. I will treasure all the memories with them, whether bitter or sweet.
And finally, I pressed the icon. Instantly, my body gave off a bright light. It caught Lict and Levi’s attention. The supreme God widened his eyes and approached me.
“You used a skill to grant your own wish!?” Levi squeezed his head. “Do you know how difficult it is to rebuild your successor!? It will take years, and it won’t necessarily work!”
I forced a slight grin on my mouth, then put my middle finger in the supreme God’s face. He just opened his mouth with a confused look.
I just hope that he knows the meaning of this gesture, that I despise him.
The light in my body grew brighter, and I felt a soothing warmth. My eyelids became so heavy that it forced me to close them. Furthermore, all I could see was boundless darkness.
