Jamie moved closer to Ricky and placed the hand on his chest.

The heartbeat was regular.

There seemed to be no problem with the heart, but the infiltrated mana was spreading through the body and confirmed the condition.

“Everything is normal.”

The muscles, bones, nerves and organs are all normal. The brain seemed fine too, but, there was one problem

Holy power

“Should it be a symptom of exhaustion?”

Ricky was the only one who blocked the explosion and the explosion was caused by Kreon. In the process of it he must have exhausted his holy power and lost consciousness.

Maybe that is why not even a handful of holy power could be felt from Ricky.

“As an apostle, there should be a way to recover.”

Seeing that not a single drop recovered in full month, it seemed that he had look into this.

The fortunate thing is that it wasn’t life threatening. If there is a problem, then he decided to open Inverse heaven.

Ricky’s essence was undead which Jamie created before Ricky turned into an apostle. So if the gate is opened, the recovery rate will be faster than now

‘Before that, Pyro wouldn’t have been still if it was life threatening.’

She would have made sure to intervene and do something. Without the apostle, it will be impossible for her to actively intervene in the land.

If there is an apostle and the conditions are met, she can descend any time

It will take a lot of power but the world is already in chaos. Several regions broke the rules of 12 Gods as they began to invade.

As for her, her power to invade must have piled up


Jamie focused his left hand with holy power.


As golden light sparked on it, the room began to fill up with holy power.

This wasn’t a space designed for such things, but he is the church and there is an apostle and Jamie is a saint, so he is in the best state.

As Jamie’s eyes turned purple the symbol of Pyro spread out on the ground like a magic circle on the ceiling and floor.


There was a huge shock which shook the entire church

A commotion could be heard from the outside but the pope and his people shouted to silence it

-Be quiet all! The goddess is coming down!

Indeed, as expected of pope.

Thanks to him who noticed Pyro’s coming, it seemed like no trouble would happen

‘Still, aren’t they curious when the God they believe so much in is descending?’

Aside from the people, someone should want to peep through the door and look at her.


Jamie thought a lot as he felt the strong presence being created in the room.

‘Certainly, Pyro is stronger than I thought.’

Among the 12 Gods, she is a god with highest combat power.

It was ridiculous to be isolated among the 12 Gods despite having this kind of power.

She couldn’t be having this much strength. Anyway, in the past it felt like his body would break every time she manifested but now, he didn’t feel anything.

It was because he had restored most of the power of his previous life.


A golden light flashed in an instant.

Jamie frowned

‘So flashy’

Since she was coming down from heaven, this amount of energy is bound to be used. And with the light slowly fading, there came a woman who looked at Ricky with sad eyes

“Poor child. You did so much.”

She gently stroked the cheek of Ricky and turned to Jamie

“it has been one long time.”

“Long time no see.”

“Your words have turned s shorter. I always knew you are the cheeky one.”

“Well- I am not in the position to kneel like I did back then.”

It wasn’t like they had good feelings about each other. There was no conflict with her but she is still one of the 12 Gods.

And that meant Jamie had to deal with her.

However, he had a connection ot Ricky and Ricky to her, so he decided to take advantage of her situation so he left her alone.

“Do you believe in that frugal power?”


Jamie smiled and opened his purple eyes as a violet mana began to flow through the skin.

The temperature in the room soared in an instant to a level as great as the holy power of the Goddess

This made Pyro think

‘… what had happened?’

She was shocked at the power Jamie displayed.

She couldn’t believe it despite seeing it. this power which this human is wielding…

‘it seems like 12 Gods are crossed over.’

It didn’t feel like a god’s power since Jamie sin’t one, but that black mana and the violent nature seemed like it could invade their holy power.


A long time back, so she didn’t remember till now

Just like the human who existed to kill the 12 Gods

‘He said he is that man’s successor.’

He said that he wasn’t a direct successor but one who inherited his vision and story

But was it possible to obtain power equal to that of a God?

This is like

‘Diablo Volfir’

Was all she could think of.

If it were any other human being, she knew that the only one who had this kind of power to oppose the God is him.

It is embarrassing.

It seems that the monster which tried to drive them out of the land reappeared.

Pyro felt afraid.

“… where did you get such power?”

She asked in a low voice and Jamie could already guess what she was going through

It was because she had the reaction like she found out that the subject she thought as a bug was now the same as her.

She felt on the edge due to her skin crawling in fear.

“Where did I get it? I grew it all by myself.”

“Funny sounds you make. For 6 years yet. I remember you back then. We signed the contract.”

“You should have remembered what you said back then. You said you would believe me? I don’t understand why you don’t seem happy when I have grown this much?”

Pyro frowned at his remarks, but he wasn’t speak wrong for her to counter.

As he said, it was she who had extended the hand and asked him to join and he really did grow strong

The problem was that the power of his is enough to threaten her

‘If he betrays me, there will be no way out.’

However, if she did something to make him walk away that would be a problem, so she responded in a calm voice.

“Right. What else is important? If you have become this strong, it is good.”

“it is nice to see you being cool.”

“So. Why did you come to find me? I don’t think you are here to show off your strength.”

Jamie decided to stop pissing her off and get to the point

“I think you know why I called, right?”

“You talking about that Zenith?”

“Zenith is one thing, but there are a few churches which suddenly attacked the north. The Seldam Kingdom is targeted by the Church of Nothingness and is in a difficult state. What the hell happened in heaven? It isnt unrelated either, so I want you to be honest with me”

May gods had united to hit the North.

Even the supposed non allies bean to join in. is that all?

The reason Ricky became like this was because of their holy power which was united and exploded. It was clear that something was happening in heaven.

He didn’t think Pyro was so isolated from knowing anything, he thought she would know a gist of it.

“Why did the Church of Nothingness come? Why did thoe bastards touch my people. I need you to tell me. You see I am a bit angry,”

“Hmm. Simply put, Zenith’s politics worked.”

“Politics worked?”

“As you know, the Gods who attacked the North this time were all taking root across the central line of the continent. Zenith insisted that they have more believes in order to keep the ‘South’ in check”

South in check

In other words it means to keep Ra in check.

To that end, Zenith was in a position to approach the Gods of central line and invade the North to absorb that and increase their power

But Jamie couldn’t understand.

This isn’t something Ra would ignore

Even Satan had knelt down in 10 seconds and Zenith can contain it by increasing the believes?

Clearly there were other purposes for doing this.

“And the other Gods? I think the marginalized will be upset?’

“I do not know about their situation. What is certain is that the five of them united but it is true that they do not trust each other.”


“Well. on the surface they speak about keeping Ra in check but in reality, isn’t it because each of them had their own reasons?”

Own reasons?

Jamie frowned

He didn’t know what they are and nor did Pyro

It was fortunate that they weren’t united with same intention. This mean he can separate them and wouldn’t have to deal with all 5 at the same time.

“What are you going to do? Since the apostle is in this state the Pyro Church must have greatly weakened now.”

“Why are you speaking like this is someone else thing? This child belongs to the same church you belong to.”

“You are not going to make them pay, right?”

“Huh! I plan make them pay. How dare they lay hands on my child… it is unforgivable.”

“Then good.”

“What do you mean?”

“When I deal with the Church of Nothingess, I want you to stop the other ones from interfering.”

“… are you confident?’


Jamie smirked as he sad

“Let’s try it here”

Black mana gushed out making Pyro frown


“Well, you don’t have to worry.”

Jamie spoke with a smile.

“Because I am not going to lose this time.”

No matter how the opponent is

“What? that grey shield?”

“Uh…? It wasn’t there normally”

Beiros and Ann landed in front of the gray shield which sounded the capital

“It is strong”

When Beiros put his finger on the shield, a spart burst out resisting his touch. It seemed that this wasn’t something he can break into

It was the same with Ann, which meant outsiders aren’t allowed

“Damn it. do we have to wait endlessly?’


They arrived at full speed but the guy already left leaving his subordinate alone!

Beiros slammed the shield hard with annoyed face


Then, the shield retained the power and pushed to Beiros again


His body flew several meters and crashed.

“it even reflects the attack.”

Ann looked at the shield with shocked eyes.

She was able to understand things at a glance, bit she couldn’t figure out what kind of structure this shield had.

What was inevitable was that the power of protecting was done by the sacrifice of two royal family members.

No matter how great of a Scholar’s talent she held, it wasn’t possible to grasp the power of a transcendent being

“Shit! Let’s just pierce through it!”

Ann stopped him as annoyed Beiros would turn to away

“I do not think that it is a good idea.”


“I don’t know about the other things but this shield reacts to the maliciousness, I don’t know what kind of malice it reacts to, but hostility only increases the strength of the shield.”

“So. Every time I get annoyed the shield gets stronger?”


“Very annoying… then what? look around.”

“There is nothing we can do so let’s do tha.”

They couldn’t do anything about the shield, so they decided to look around and find a way.

It was the moment Beiros took Ann on his shoulders and flew.

“You don’t have to go back.”

A priest in black robes who wasn’t there a second came back came. With a necklace which had the shape of an eyeball around, he held out the palm and said.

“The two of you shall return to nothingness.”

And the power of nothingness rushed for the two


“What are you doing, you human trash!”

Beiros smashed the head of the priest at once.
