Chapter 423 – Black Tower (2)
A barren land.
The trees in this area had withered and were missing their leaves, and only the remains of rotting weeds were rolling around on the ground.
Dark clouds covered the ground all year round as if there was no day, and beasts were roaming for food with madness in their eyes.
Then a bright halo of light rose over the land, which looked dead.
Someone walked slowly out of there.
It was a woman with soft green light around her body, and there was a tree and a complicated diamond-shaped pattern on her forehead and on the back of her hand.
It was Sarah.
The desolate land she was standing on was becoming fertile, and the withered trees began to rise to life little by little.
A feast of life that defeats even death just by being there.
It was the power of the Mother Goddess.
The dead forest began to regain its life, as if the sight earlier was just a lie.
Along with that, a greater force spread from Sarah’s body in all directions.
The starving animals went to her.
They wagged their tails and took gentle steps.
Everyone seemed happy to be by Sarah’s side.
It was then.
The sound of something heavy hitting the ground behind them could be heard, and the animals ran from the massive impact.
“I was wondering what kind of energy appeared all of a sudden.
It was you?”
It had a harsh voice, as if its throat was damaged.
And Sarah turned back.
A huge monster with gray skin stood there.
Two huge fangs protruded from its lower lip, and it had a large jaw and terrifying eyes peering out from under a tight hood.
But the most impressive thing was the huge greatsword it had on its back.
At first glance, it seemed to be over 2 meters tall.
And just looking at its width alone, it was more appropriate to use the word ‘club’ than ‘sword’ to describe it.
He was Galakios.
He was a demon that the Demon King Wrath, Diablo Volfir, had directly scouted from the Devildom.
He raised his greatsword from its hilt and gave off an aura of wanting to cut down Sarah’s body.
“I don’t know what you are, but just being in front of you makes me feel fucked.”
The greatsword was pulled out of its sheath.
The large sword matched the body of the demon, so it wasn’t a joke for him to hold it.
It wasn’t just the discomfort.
But the energy from his body was being pushed back by the life force that Sarah had.
“I didn’t hear that someone was coming, so you must be an intruder.”
There was no need to check.
One couldn’t enter this land without permission, and if they did so, they would be persecuted.
Magi wrapped around the greatsword.
“You look young, but your energy is the exact opposite of your appearance.
I can kill you without another thought.”
Galakios was stained black, and the giant moved at a speed that was impossible to see.
Arriving right in front of Sarah, he swung his weapon to cut her down.
Sarah’s eyes widened.
Galakios felt his body stiffen and flew back from where he came.
He even released the magi he didn’t plan on using.
‘To make me use this.’
From the first time he saw her, he knew that this being was strange.
From reviving the forest and even giving it life.
Galakios drove the greatsword to the ground.
The ground was scratched roughly, and the sword acted like a break.
He had to use both of his legs to stop himself without taking much damage.
He pulled out the greatsword that was stuck on the ground and glared at Sarah.
“What is your name?”
Sarah didn’t answer.
It was like she was possessed by something.
Slowly, without saying a word, she walked to him.
He had no idea where or why such a powerful energy had appeared, but rather, Galakios started to feel happy.
His body had been aching.
Ever since he came here, he hadn’t had a proper fight.
“If you don’t want to answer, then don’t.
I was just trying to know your name.”
Huge horns began to sprout from his temples.
He used to live as a wanderer in the Devildom, but his power couldn’t be underestimated as being lower than that of the Demon Lords.
He was a one-man army.
He jumped at Sarah and raised his sword above her head.
“I WILL KILL YOU!!!”
Sarah raised her hand.
Green light focused on her fingertips, and primordial energy began to shake around her.
Galakios roared like a beast as he swung his sword.
Then a green light flashed.
At that moment…
The green light that covered her body and the patterns on her forehead and on the back of her hand vanished.
Sarah looked around, puzzled, as if she had come to her senses.
“W-What? What happened all of a sudden? Where am I….”
At some point, her memory went blank, and when she came to her senses, she was so shocked that she was in the middle of a forest.
And the most shocking thing came next.
She raised her head at the scream that came from above.
Out of instinct, she twisted her body to the side.
When the sword fell to the ground, dust, and sand exploded everywhere, and Sarah looked at the man wielding a sword.
A monster with gray skin and horns on its head.
His black eyes shone with each movement, and he opened his mouth with his fangs protruding.
“What are you?”
“What is suddenly wrong with you?”
“Well, forget it.
It was strange for Galakios to watch her act suddenly differently, but as he decided to kill her, it was better for him that way, so he swung his sword.
Sarah raised mana all over her body, but Galakios was a being who had gone past the human level.
He swung the huge sword with one hand and grabbed Sarah’s small body with his large hand, and as if there was nothing more to say, he began to clench his hand.
A woman’s clear voice was heard, and she landed on his forearm.
Her light blue hair caught Sarah’s eyes.
The familiar voice.
Sarah looked at the woman, and she said,
“What are you doing to my cute disciple, monster?”
It was Isis.
Galakios and Isis looked at each other, and he said,
So remove your hand before I cut it off.”
Is this woman crazy? Are you planning on fighting me just because you gained some strength?”
“If you don’t let her go in peace, I will separate your head and body.”
“That is funny.
First of all, I will kill that disciple of yours!”
He laughed, clenching Sarah’s body.
Sarah screamed at the pain her body was being forced to endure.
Isis frowned and said,
“A beast who cannot understand words.”
With the sound of the wind being cut, Galakios’s arm was cut.
Sarah was released, and she tumbled across the floor.
It felt like all her organs would explode, so she continued to cough.
She was suddenly attacked, and it had been a long time since she had been in a one-sided fight.
Even though she apparently became stronger in the World Tree, she couldn’t dodge this one.
“What is this?”
With red eyes, she looked in the direction of the monster and her teacher.
The two were fiercely fighting.
“Huh! The arm!”
Galakios regenerated a new arm and struck Isis with his fist.
Isis, who blocked it easily with her sword, pushed her power into her hand and shot it like a lightning beam.
As Galakios hastily blocked the beam with his sword, his huge body was pushed back.
The terrible memory from earlier came back, and his already ferocious face became more ferocious.
He put strength into his legs.
Galakios’s body, which had been pushed back, slowly stopped and began to move forward instead.
Isis stuck her tongue out at his immense strength.
“I guess you aren’t just a muscled fool.”
In terms of sheer power, no one could surpass this monster, even if that was all he had.
With the power and strength he had, he might even tear this land apart.
Isis returned to her stance and turned the sword with her wrist.
You run away for a while because I don’t think I can protect you.”
Sarah knew too well that she would only become a burden to her master, so upon hearing that, she began to run in the opposite direction.
“I don’t let go of intruders.”
“I told you, you idiot, she is my disciple.”
“Then you are my enemy too.”
“Did your brain get replaced with muscles? I am starting to get annoyed.”
“Coming here is the most fun! Use more power!”
That is why you aren’t popular.”
Sarah’s shoulder flinched at the crushing sound, and her skin tingled from it.
The battle of divine beings was too much for her to handle.
Sarah, who had been running, stopped in place and tilted her head.
“Why is Teacher here?”
She hadn’t thought about it earlier because of the situation, and she just noticed it now.
From what she knew, Isis left for the Black Tower.
Did she accidentally find her and decide to help her out?
Sarah wasn’t really sure.
Was it really a coincidence or…
“Is the Black Tower around here?”
She knew the answer.
Isis was somehow acquainted with the monster who tried to kill her.
What was the percentage of her knowing a monster that was killing her disciple?
It would be in decimals.
So Sarah was able to relax and check out her surroundings.
Then she found it.
The huge building in front of her.
She hadn’t seen it properly until now, so she thought it was simply a huge cliff, but not anymore.
There were countless windows with intricate patterns carved into them.
Above all, layers were formed, and lastly, the color of the walls was quite dark.
It felt much darker than when she saw it from a distance.
It soared up beyond the sky, which was covered with dark clouds.
Even compared to the World Tree, it didn’t fall far behind in size.
It surely had to be the Black Tower.
“Brother is in there.”
At that thought, her heart began to pound.
Sarah gulped, holding her chest.
She never thought the meeting would be this sudden.
She didn’t know why she was here, but by the time she regained consciousness, she was here, as if Gaia had shortened the time.
She looked back, and they were still fighting.
Sarah turned her head again and ran for the Black Tower.
