no matter how harsh the fate of a person was, they had to live by accepting it as their fate.

Shiva thought that fate could never be changed or escaped from.
Even now, these thoughts haven’t changed much.

However, he wondered if such a harsh fate could be alleviated a little.

So he thought trying to change it even a little would be enough.


Hearing Shiva’s apology, Sarah’s eyes went wide.

“Why are you like this?”

Why was he feeling sorry for her?

Shiva shook his head with a bitter face and said,

Anyway, it is up to you.
It’s yours now.”

“Can I really take this? Even if it’s not Teacher Isis, some other Ran warriors can…”

“Your potential is not inferior to the Rans’, and there are many outstanding things about you.
Never underestimate your strength and continue to work hard.”


“I have passed down the qualifications now, but this old man, the God of War, has finished his task.
So believe and move forward.
Carve your own destiny.”


Sarah replied right away.

Seeing that, Shiva smiled and nodded his head.

“I will bring Teacher here when she wakes up.
If it is her, she can surely get Grandpa out of there now.
And it wasn’t a joke.
Overpowering such a ridiculously hideous monster alone gives you goosebumps, right?”

Sarah spoke with her eyes shining.

Shiva replied.

“Get some rest.
You look bad.
As soon as you can be pulled out of there, we will treat you.
I will come back.”


Sarah said it and climbed back to the mountain.
Shiva, who was now alone, sighed and stretched his body.

“I am tired.”

He kept trying to look fine in front of Sarah, but from the moment he handed over his essence to Isis, he was weakening.

The flame was going out, and he could see the final embers drying out his skin.


Shiva was losing his life.

“…have finally reached this state.”

Even though it would be impossible to achieve it with his own hands, he let someone else carry his will.
It wasn’t known whether they would reach the end but even if they failed, they could pass it to another.

If that happens, then one day…

“I will leave first, everyone.”

The wide cave went silent.


Sarah came back to the cave with an excited voice.
She was followed by Mayatrey, Isis, who had regained consciousness, and the other warriors.

Isis watched Sarah’s back as she ran.

“She seems quite excited.”

Is it because the fight is over?”

“It was rough.”

Isis mumbled in a bitter tone.

She won, but she didn’t feel like she did.
So many sacrifices were made.

At the top of the mountain, the corpses of the warriors who lost their lives were laid out.
As soon as Shiva was rescued, they would take the corpses and return.

“Grandpa! You should be able to get out of there now! Come, let’s go back together!”

Sarah smiled and entered the cave, and she looked at Shiva hanging in the distance.

He looked tired and seemed to be asleep.

Wake up.”

Sarah approached Shiva and slightly shook his shoulder to wake him up.
But the man didn’t budge.

He seemed to be in a deep sleep.


Sarah shook him harder.
However, Shiva’s body only dropped.


Sarah called out to Shiva, sounding panicked, but she didn’t get an answer.

“Grandpa! Wake up! It is all over! Let us go to a place where we can rest well! If it doesn’t work out, then I will get my brother too! We are not close but if I ask him then…”


As Sarah continued to speak nonsense out of fear, Isis slightly tugged at her shoulder.

Ha, Grandpa isn’t waking up.
I talked to him earlier, but he suddenly isn’t waking up.
They say old people sleep a lot.
I guess Grandpa is like that too.


Isis shook her head.

Sarah gulped and looked down.
She saw the warriors, along with Mayatrey, behind her.
And all of them seemed gloomy.

“Why is everyone like that? We need to get Grandpa out.
He doesn’t like it here.”



Lord Shiva is dead.”

Sarah shook her head at Isis’s words.

“What are you talking about? I am telling you, we had a normal conversation until now! He was fine.
He looked a bit tired but he couldn’t have died suddenly like this…”

“He held on.
He wanted to look as fine as he could in front of you.”


Sarah shook Shiva in disbelief.
However, the more she did that, the more limp his body began to look.

“Grandpa… lie.
You are lying.
When I told him I was bringing people, he said ‘alright.’ Then why… suddenly?”

“Let’s send him off.
He needs to rest.”

The man was trapped here for so long, and he lived a horrid life.
He always wanted to give up, but he held on to life until the end and waited for another day to come.

And today.

He held onto the guilt for years and completely shook off his remnant emotions as he handed over his will to another person.

And then he went into eternal rest.

“Your will, I will surely carry it.”

Isis bowed her head to Shiva and hugged Sarah from behind.

All the Ran warriors followed her to honor the hero who gave himself up for the world.

Sarah felt tears flowing down as she said,

“I will.
I will definitely carve my own destiny.”

It was a short meeting, but Shiva’s intentions were delivered to Sarah.

He would rest in her heart for the rest of her life.
