Chapter 154 – Hero Reinald (1)
Golden energy exploded.
The surface was covered by intense light as if the sun had landed on the ground.
Reinald slowly got up.
His body radiated an intense light.
– Get up, Reinald.
It wasn't hard to imagine what that energy was.
Reinald's expression darkened.
He couldn't help but feel bad about the fact that he'd fallen for a trick.
– Raise your head, my child.
He could hear Tyrion's voice.
It was magnificent and firm.
Reinald's voice trembled.
I made a mistake…”
– You picked up your sword to save a little girl.
How could you say that's a mistake?
A short exclamation came out of his mouth.
Reinald gripped 'Del Lain' a bit tighter.
“Thank you, Mr.
I'm proud of you, my child.
“I'm also honored to serve you, Mr.
Strength returned to his trembling legs.
He stepped on the ground and got up.
An explosive amount of strength spread through his body.
“It seems like Balzac has obtained an even bigger strength after becoming an underling of Satan.”
Is it a being similar to the Evil God Lucifer?
“There's someone I suspect of being Satan.”
– And who's that?
“There was a demon who was trying to make a demon dragon his underling when I first came to this world.”
He tried to remember it.
The mean and tricky way of fighting that Balzac showed…
It reminded him of how that demon used to fight.
It wasn't just that…
When Reinald received Demon King Balzac’s attack, he felt a similar energy that he’d sensed when he fought against that demon.
'I'm certain of it.'
He remembered the demon’s face…
A young man with sharp eyes.
Although he looked like a human, his real identity was that of an evil demon.
– We cannot let him freely roam around.
To protect this world, we have to get rid of Satan.
No matter what.”
To do that, you cannot collapse here at this place.
– I'm going to lend you my power.
Although the price I have to pay is high… I'm going to resist it if it's for my child.
A smile appeared on his face.
He raised the ‘Del Lain’.
He could see that Balzac was still holding that little girl.
“Put your faith in the light!” He shouted.
A golden light came out of ‘Del Lain’.
Although he'd been one-sidedly hit by Balzac's attacks after falling for his tricks, the situation had changed now that he'd received part of Tyrion's power.
The light that came out of ‘Del Lain’ protected the little girl.
Balzac's eyes trembled.
He stomped on the ground.
The impact destroyed the rocks around them, and an explosive amount of strength filled his body.
Reinald's body shot forward so fast that a hallucination seemed visible; he reached Balzac in the blink of an eye.
Balzac quickly used magic.
A wall made of black demonic energy appeared in front of him.
‘Del Lain’ hit the defensive wall.
The wall of demonic energy was destroyed with just one attack.
Balzac's body was pushed backward.
“Are you okay?”
He held the girl Balzac had as a hostage.
The girl's expression distorted.
Reinald put his hand on her cheek while making a worried expression.
“Are you hurt anywhere?”
She avoided looking at him.
There was hesitation in her eyes.
– Don't move without the master's order.
– I know.
She could hear Balzac's voice.
Echidna nodded while frowning.

Reinald seemed to be about to cry out of happiness after saving the little girl.
A handsome blonde young man covered with golden light and a pretty girl that was in his arms…
Death knights were scattered away on the ground, and a lich had collapsed before him.
Of course, the reality was different.
'Where do you think you're touching?'
Echidna twisted her body and freed herself from her arms.
The thought that Reinald had touched her body made her feel unpleasant.
What she wanted wasn't someone whose only virtue was looking good on the outside.
The one who'd saved her from a horrible place called loneliness…
She couldn't stand the thought that someone that wasn’t him had touched her.
“Thank you for… saving me.”
But she hadn't forgotten her role.
Echidna bowed while blushing.
Reinald stood up while making a proud expression.
“Wait here, please.
I'll be done soon.”
The power Tyrion had lent him lasted only for a short while.
Once that time was up, Tyrion and he would have to pay the price for doing that.
'I have to get rid of Balzac before that.'
He grabbed his sword.
He stomped on the ground without hesitation and leaped toward Balzac.
“KangWoo, can you hear me…?”
As Reinald flew toward Balzac, Echidna called KangWoo while making a hard expression.
– I can hear you.
“Should I help Balzac? What should I do?”
– No, remain still for the moment.
Also, get away from there when I send a signal.
She didn't say anything.
There was no need to doubt KangWoo's plan.
She just had to follow them.
That was her role.
Echidna cut the call.
Her eyes were full of loyalty.
* * *
A curse came out of his mouth.
KangWoo stopped the sparring for a short while.
“Let's take a break.”
“Ahh! Ahh! Understood, Hyeongnim.”
Kim ShiHoon nodded while breathing heavily.
Although Kim ShiHoon seemed tired, KangWoo hadn't shed any sweat.
“As expected, I'm still not a match for Hyeongnim.”
Kim ShiHoon avoided looking at him while feeling regretful.
KangWoo patted his shoulder.
What kind of hyeongnim would I be if you'd already caught up to me?”
I'll eventually catch up.”
“I'll be waiting.”
His expression darkened after he turned around.
Although he was smiling on the outside, on the inside, he wasn't.
He could see Balzac through his left eye.
After Reinald awakened, the hostage plan had failed, and the situation had completely changed.
The fight was one-sided.
After Awakening, Reinald was cornering Balzac.
He was resisting thanks to magic, but it was clear that he would lose against Reinald soon.
'If things go on like this, I'll lose Balzac.'
He couldn't let Reinald get rid of Balzac.
'I guess there's nothing I can do about it.'
KangWoo raised his head and began to think very fast.
Although his first plan had failed, it wasn't like he didn't have another strategy.
'Although it's a bit dangerous.'
Since things had become dangerous, he had no other choice.
KangWoo turned to Gaia.
“Now that I think about it, I guess Reinald should've received the revelation by now.”
It should already be…”
“Let's go listen to that revelation.”
KangWoo went to Reinald's room along with Gaia and Kim ShiHoon.
Of course, Reinald's room was empty.
“Where did Mr.
Reinald go?” KangWoo asked while looking around.
Kim ShiHoon was also looking.
“Did you hear anything?”
“No, I haven't.”
“There are traces of him hurriedly leaving somewhere.”
KangWoo looked at the traces with a hardened expression and moved toward where they led.
The traces led them toward the room where the gate that was connected with the Grand Canyon was.
“Wh-what happened?” Gaia asked with a trembling voice.
“It seems like he quickly went toward somewhere as soon as he received the revelation.”
Balzac… or maybe the Demon Cult, has used some sort trick to lure Mr.
“H-how could something like that…?”
Gaia's face turned pale.
Seeing that Reinald had run off alone, it seemed like the situation was quite urgent.
The thought that the new ally they'd obtained could disappear made her tremble in fear.
No, Reinald wasn't a simple ally.
Because he was the apostle of a god, he had a huge strength, and he also had the blessing of that god.
But more than that, thanks to the revelations, he might be able to provide them with information about the Demon Cult.
The thought of losing him was horrifying.
“I'm going to go first.”
There was no time to hesitate.
KangWoo turned and stomped on the ground.
Gaia and follow me!”
After saying that, KangWoo crossed the gate.
Thanks to the Authority of Speed, KangWoo moved across the canyon at an impressive speed.
He put on the mask while rushing through the canyon as if it were a flat surface.
He could see Reinald with his left eye.
He reached the place where there was an explosion of golden energy.
Reinald!!” KangWoo shouted toward him in a hurried voice.
Reinald was surprised by KangWoo's sudden appearance.
“Why did you come here alone without saying anything?!”
Something that I couldn't say at the moment happened.”
“Balzac took someone as a hostage and lured me here.”
Reinald angrily pointed toward Balzac, who was on the floor.
“Because of that evil demon, an innocent girl was put in a dangerous situation… but she's okay now.
Thanks to Mr.
Tyrion's blessing, I was able to protect this little girl.”
Reinald smiled and was about to turn around.
Suddenly, his body lost strength.
The golden light that was covering his body disappeared.
It meant that the strength of the god named Tyrion had disappeared.
He couldn't hear Tyrion's voice anymore.
The situation was over.
The Demon King Balzac had collapsed and support had arrived.
He'd even rescued the beautiful girl he'd held as a hostage.
The girl he'd saved was nowhere to be seen.
Reinald turned around and tried to seek out the girl.
“Th-the girl that Balzac held was d-definitely here…! Mr.
K-KangWoo! Haven't you seen a girl around this—”
A dark-red spear pierced Reinald's body.
“You're just making things too tiresome.”
KangWoo twisted the spear he'd used to pierce Reinald's body.
Blood poured out of him.
“Go play being a hero in another novel.”
He laughed at him.
“Ah, but I don't think anyone is going to read a novel with you as a protagonist.”
