Chapter 164 – Great Plains of Barrastan (15)

At Sungjin’s sharp words, the Hunters took a moment to give each other glances. It was for just a few seconds, but they could already know instinctively.

‘This man could kill all of us if he wanted. The reason why he hasn’t already is because of his own reasons.’

And because of it, they felt less and less inclined to protect Edward. Reading the Hunters’ body language, Sungjin repeated himself assertively.

“One more time, I have no interest in anyone other than that Magician. I don’t wish to create collateral damage. Get out of my way, and nothing will happen to the rest of you.”

Now Sungjin’s words caused a divide among the Hunters. The will to fight plummeted and the hands that held the weapons were loosened. Sungjin smiled inwardly. But then he heard Ed’s voice from the back.

“Who are you? Why are you attacking me?”

Sungjin didn’t give much of an answer.

‘Sins of your previous life.’

It wasn’t like he could give that reasoning.

“Please let’s talk it out. I don’t want to cause trouble to other hunters. Please put down your weapon.”

Sungjin found himself relaxing hearing those words. Edward wouldn’t have remembered what he had done in the last life, but there was a thing or two he had wanted to hear before killing him.

“Rawr!”

There was a sudden roaring of a beast. Sensing something was going on, Sungjin quickly made his way towards the hunters. Seeing Sungjin suddenly dash forward, the hunters couldn’t react and just stood in place. Sungjin gritted his teeth.

‘So annoying.’

He put away the Moon Specter and pulled it back out as he said,

“Ghastly Wail”

“Kyaaa!”

Moon Specter began to screech once freed from the scabbard. Like Moses splitting the Red Sea, Moon Specter scattered the hunters and revealed Edward in the back. He was mounted on top of a great Siberian Tiger.

His request for talking it out must have not been out of his desire for peaceful resolution, but to buy time to summon the tiger. Sungjin quickly ran towards him.

But just one hunter, Juggernaut, stood in his way. He stood stoically in spite of the screeching Moon Specter. He must have some sort of defense against fear as a tank.

He completely gave up on attack and had only the shield in his hands as he stood in Sungjin’s way. Sungjin was going to ignore him and go around, but then the Juggernaut took out a strange stone statue.

It was a strange helix shaped twist coming out of a flat plate-like surface. And on it was a smear of blood. Sungjin had thought the statue had a curious appearance, but he had no time to be wasting on it at the moment.

“Damn it, move!”

But then the Juggernaught used the timing when Sungjin moved past him to say,

“Guidance of the Old Gods”

The active skill was activated, and then the stone statue began to sprout octopus-like tentacles which came flying towards Sungjin. Sungjin cut the tentacles apart with a single strike, but he accidentally let one pass his guard, and it wrapped around his heels. Sungjin shouted,

“What is this?”

He cut the tentacle in irritation, but the severed tentacle continued to hang on as if it was still alive. Sungjin was filled with wrath, and he completely cut it down to pieces. But the stone statue continued to spill forth more tentacles. Enraged, Sungjin cut away all the tentacles trying to grab at him and effortlessly broke the statue.

‘Kheehe…’

The statue gave off a strange cry. Once the statue was broken, the Tentacles holding onto Sungjin lost their vitality and withered on the spot. Sungjin glared at the Juggernaut as if he were going to kill him.

Juggernaut who even withstood the shrieking of Moon Specter found himself instinctively backtracking when he saw Sungjin’s expression. Sungjin turned to look at Edward. While Juggernaut was buying time, Edward had managed to put a large distance between them with the help of the tiger.

Sungjin paused to look down at his belt, but there were no more items available for himself to use. He had already consumed them all during the fight with Dragon Arcaiard. Sungjin began to run towards Edward on his feet as he called Serin.

“Serin”

He only said her name, but Serin knew why Sungjin was calling her. He had wanted her to shoot down the Tiger Ed was riding. But Serin did not raise her bow. She just pretended to play dumb.

“W…what is it oppa?”

She asked. Sungjin looked at her and said,

“Shoot that…”

But when he saw the conflict on her face,

“…Fine.”

He stopped. Sungjin turned and watched Ed run away on the Tiger, dazed. The Tiger was very fast. It wasn’t possible to catch up to the tiger without Cain Rajenta or Shadowrun available. And this Barrastan Plain was a very large area. Even with the map limitation, it was likely that he would not be able to locate Ed before the time got over.

“Damn it!”

Sungjin kicked the ground in anger. The Hunters began to edge away from Sungjin when they saw this. Even Juggernaut who had put up resistance until the end slowly moved away in fear of being attacked in retaliation. Only Serin remained behind and walked up to him.

“Oppa, maybe there was some sort of misunderstanding…”

Sungjin cut her off.

“The one misunderstanding is you. That guy, he’s the one responsible for completely screwing up the previous raid.”

“But there could have been…”

“No matter his reasons, It’s safer to cut the problem at the roots before, is it not?”

“But…”

“But what? What are you going to do if he fires a spell at you from the back during the middle of the fight?”

Serin couldn’t say anything more to Sungjin’s words. Sungjin was about to say more to Serin when the Operator spoke from the Cube.

[The Chosen One Requested your teleportation.]

And soon, Baltren’s image appeared from the cube. He urgently called out.

“Kei, please come and help. Right now…”

But he couldn’t continue to speak because he was too busy blocking someone’s spear.

Sungjin saw Serin who was silently looking down at the ground and said,

“Let’s have a conversation when we get back to Ninety Nine Nights.”

And then he said, “Accept.”

Sungjin moved to the other dimension. Baltren’s Dimension was in a mess. It appeared as though someone must have screwed up the initial Guerrilla warfare phase because the main Demon Army was present at the scout camps. The Hunters were putting up resistance with Baltren as the anchor, but the odds were overwhelming to begin with.

Few hunters were already lost, laying on the ground. Quickly grasping the situation, Sungjin hastily ran in to help the others.

“Uaahp!”

He cut down all the Demons that approached him.

“Kaa!”

Even as he watched the Demon cry out in pain, Sungjin was recalling Edward’s face from earlier.

‘It was…such a good opportunity…’

And each time he had that thought, anger would fill his mind. One by one, the Hunters who were surrounded by the enemies were saved by Sungjin’s efforts, and the tables were turned. But in the middle of it all,

[The Chosen One Requested your teleportation.]

Nada had called him this time.

“Hey Sungjin, we are planning on fighting the main force soon… we lost a hunter during the Guerrilla phase. Would you please come and help us out?”

The situation on that side was much better. Sungjin said to her,

“Here, let me finish with the boss on this side first. Wait for me.”

“Alright okay.”

Sungjin moved dimensions where Nada was waiting after he had finished helping Baltren defeat the leader Zeratar. When Nada saw Sungjin who was bathed in blood, she asked,

“…Will you be okay, Kei?”

She knew it was likely that none of that blood was his, but she thought that perhaps he might be physically exhausted. But Sungjin nodded and said,

“I am okay. I’m okay so, let’s get going.”

Nada thought that he was acting slightly strange, but she still turned to the other hunters to tell them,

“Then let us begin.”

One of the Hunter faced the main army and chanted,

“Fireball!”

And let loose a spell.

‘Boom!’

Flames erupted with a loud bang. The enemies came charging in; it was a staggering number of foes. The other hunters had looked upon the army with fear, but Sungjin actually welcomed their sight.

Ever since he lost track of Edward, he felt like if he didn’t swing his sword, he would become angry. So once Sungjin ended his third raid, he spent the remaining time to search for trolls.

The raid this time did not yield all that much. He had spent a long time assisting the ‘Chosen Ones’ and searching for trolls in other dimensions proved to be difficult (for the same reason as Edward).

Either way, Sungjin used up all his time, and he was summoned by the Operator to the Hunter’s Hall.

*

‘Woong’

Sungjin arrived at the room with endless rows of columns along with the sound. The Hunter’s Hall which had been filled as far as the eye could see was now looking empty with only a few hunters standing interspersed.

Sungjin turned his head to look around, hoping to get a glimpse of Edward. Of course, it wasn’t like harming someone else was possible in this room. There was no way the Operator would allow that.

[Congratulations. The Hunters in this room have successfully cleared fourteen chapters.]
[Of the 7,310,067,613 Hunters who had participated in the first Raid]
[There are currently 6710 Hunters still remaining.]

Sungjin thought about it carefully.

‘…6710?’

There were more left alive than he had thought.

‘How many was it last time? I think there was a lot less alive by this point.’

He was right. From this point onwards, he began to run into Hunters he met before more and more often due to the decreasing number of Hunters still alive. But 6710 was far more than last time.

He didn’t remember the exact figure, but it didn’t seem likely that Sungjin would run into his old teammates anytime soon with such a large crowd of people.

[Everyone is among the top 10,000 people]
[And have proven your own strengths.]
[Please survive until the end and prove the strength of Humanity.]
[And become the savior of the specie.]

After the Operator’s words, Sungjin was teleported back to the Black Market. Sungjin sat down at the teashop as if collapsing onto it.

“What should I get for you, Sir Hunter?”

Sungjin replied to the owner,

“Anything cold.”

“Understood.”

Sungjin mulled over the events of the raid. Lots of things had happened, but Edward was the first thing on his mind. Sungjin gripped his fist and slammed on the innocent table. He had hunted the Hidden boss solo and earned many items. The Raid itself was a success, but not being able to kill Edward was most disappointing.

“I have brought your order.”

She soon brought a cup of Iced Tea half filled with Ice. Sungjin didn’t worry about the Cold and drank it all in one go.

 


I read a few comments on last chapter regarding release pace. I understand the dissatisfaction but there really isn’t much that we can do. I had informed earlier that Rin the translator will be going to US to give his accountancy exam mid Nov and he is busy with that and so the last chapter and this has been translated by Gamja(previous tler of mhk who now tls Chemistry). Gamja has been making good recovery hence is trying to get chapters done of mhk apart from Chemistry since Rin is not available.

If you would like to be a part of what we do then check out our recruitment page in menu.

    1. Your logic is full of holes. I understand the sentiment but if you want me to translate for you, I can pretend I can, as I know I don’t know the language. So I can pretend I’m translating the work and just make it up as I go as it all makes no sense just looking at the words.

      The most likely response would be to learn the language, but how long does it realistically take to learn to read and understand a language? A long time, with a large possible loss of understanding of idioms and common metaphors of a culture. So your sentiment is fine but your actual word choice should be, “donate so they can hire another translator, help locate another translator, or translate yourself IF you know the language to a sufficient degree.”

  1. Ditch Serin. Ditch Serin. Ditch Serin. Ditch Serin.

    Seriously though. She only latched onto Sungjin because he was ‘nice’. Such a dense girl would compromise the future.

  2. Again. Serin.
    Gaddamit,
    How??. In one bloody mission.
    Jeez. How can you even defend her???
    Please give kei the ability to relinquish chosen one so she could go hook up with the *totally new person she trusts the most*.
    Annoying af this girl.
    I want to bloody rant.
    Like I said previous chapter, he has no reason not to take down ed. Look how Fucking sly ed was there huh?? He ask to talk yet was already summoning a pet even kei was feeling relaxed by hearing him, at this point i believe its a skill/item cause this serin girl just gone too far. Far too naive Fuck.

    Thanks gamma!!

    1. I just want to see how you can defend this girl action here. This is the typical 1D bullshit right here. In one mission your head over heels. You are prioritising right now over the future in a world that is already bleak af. This girl is stupid, for her sake I hope ed is using an item. I am convinced ed didn’t use time reversal cause he doesn’t recognise kei, still whatever motives he had for his previous actions don’t matter now. Like kei said cut the problem at the root, anyone saying he isn’t thinking rationally has obviously read too much wuxia novels and think reincarnation is done at the press of a button (oh, you killed me and my team. I’m back now let’s go talk while we sip Coffee).
      How do you possibly expect kei to still trust her now?

      1. There is nothing to defend here.Even if Edward had good reason for betraying the party,it does not matter now.Sungjin has gone back,so he gets to decides the final team of 10.There are only ten people who can remain alive.
        In the case of only 10 people deciding the future of mankind,Sungjin can not afford to pick a person he can’t fully trust.So that Edward can be a saint and it still would not matter.Sungjin does not trust him and that’s the end of story.Anyway,if they win,wouldn’t all humanity,including those who died,be saved?So all that matters right now is winning,not whether the guy is clean and nice or not.

        1. What do you mean edward had a reason and if so please tell me what the reason why Edward betrayed the party… and besides Edward didn’t know that the last survivor could go back in time, he still betrayed the party for no good reason while not telling his party members.

          1. It’s been implied/not confirmed. Edward’s reactions was kind of weird in the flashbacks and possibly killing the whole team or failing the whole raid might of been the criteria needed for revival. Edward does have access to the blackmarket and it is unknown how much he knows. Maybe Edward did found out about reset and how to do it. If this is true then it makes sense how at ease Edward was in killing his teammate because he was expecting a redo. The reincarnation ended up going to mc but whether that was intentional or not has yet to be confirmed. Seeing as how Kei suddenly relaxes this implies Edward might be using a skill and Kei’s stats might be minimizing the effect. Kei’s reasoning for wanting to kill Edward is rational, maybe not the best choice (considering it might be a big misunderstanding), but it is a rational one from Kei’s point of view.

  3. Goddammnit serin not once but twice what kind of treachery is this! Instead of helping kei she just pretend to play dumb? Are you kidding me? you Already are dumb stupid bitch you want to make excuse that maybe there’s some sort of misunderstanding? Bullshit! I really want to punch serin’s face at that moment, I knew it the moment Edward touch serin hand she’s acting a bit strange is this the work of undetectable mind control / charmed magic? why she keep insisting Edward is clean and not that kind of a man,the situation is like she knew Edward from childhood and keep defending him all the time and keep but But BUT! are you kidding me? Look at that sneaky gigolo Edward if you really are innocent your not going to run away and do the bullshit talking but instead summoned a beast fast enough to do fast escape, Smart move! The moment he saw the situation is turning bad for him Edward discarded his specially sugar coated words and run as fast like a wind.

  4. i am glad everyone hating on serin lol but honestly she is just an idiot.
    and dealing with idiots is quite easy you just have to find a fun way to punish them for every little mistakes they makes until they learn.
    lets hope he well decide on something interesting for example ban her from attending any future meeting for two rounds and warn other to not communicate with her.

    1. Or just kick her, how about it? Man, she’s the only one that was told the secret of his reincarnation, the one he trusted even more than an old timeline friend, and she have the balls to betray him. I don’t think he would want or even have the time to punish stupid people until they learn, he just needs useful people and serin just isn’t one anymore. “But Serin did not raise her bow. She just pretended to play dumb.”. She’s caught in the same reason as to why the MC can’t bring Edward, that is he can’t trust him anymore, how can you trust in someone that don’t shot when you need her to shot?

    1. “I’m sorry Serin, but you have been voted off the Raid. Pack your stuff and leave. Forever.” ~Sungjin, Probably

    1. She exchanged the trust of the one that gave her power and saved her life for the possibility of Edward being a good guy. The MC isn’t stupid, he choose the most effective way, even if he had a good reason I can’t trust him anymore, and to save everyone including him if he is a good guy after all, I need only people I can trust, and that’s it.

  5. What abote freakingly high amount of stats wich he gets for round? Magic? Author make a bullshit here. Key used none of things he could. The way wich author used to save Ed freaking me much more than Serin. But yeah, she is stupid witch.

    1. He already used all of it during his fight with the dragon. By the end of the fight he had something like 20% of his HP left(?). And his MP and skills were used too. Even if he could recover something, i would probably go for HP.

      1. Gosh, man. Srsly?
        He filled his mana with his sword just by swinging it. He had hunted demons after hidden boss, so he definitely had mana. He just didn’t use magic and new stats…
        This means he used nothing! So the way author done this are freaking awful.
        Also Serin took off the mask and showed to Ed the existence of it and now he will definitely hide his identity with it. Why she done it? – only for author’s stupid plot, coz there are no even 1 reason for her to do that. This author’s plot so freaking stupid…
        Author done all shit which he want to save Ed. It would be much better if they just don’t meet each other. But author ruined everything because he want the reason for Ed to change his appearance.
        Gosh… this author… He wanted to make plot more interesting by this, but he screw everything in the end.

          1. Gosh… again man? srsly? Think rationally abote things…
            I’ll explane.
            Ed are no match for Key. Author said so even now.
            The problem was other hunters. It would be done even with illusions or chain lightning.
            And he have other magic beside this…
            He used nothing from his arsenal which still have enough tricks. He even has not distributed his new stats points which are very high amount.
            It’s all the proof of my words.

  6. I sincerely hope that the story doesn’t end with him with Serin, I’m fine with Nada or someone he meets offscreen but please not Serin.

  7. After reading this comment section, I have to shake my head. Either people complaining about the translation (which is completely ungrateful) or people condemning Serin. I’m going to address the hate of Serin: You guys are only looking from the outside in. Imagine if you’re in that situation, and somebody who was incredibly kind, helpful. and you thought as a friend was label as dangerous Being realistic here, you would be hesitant to believe those warnings.Think of a child, whose parents forbid to befriend another kid. Also, I don’t get how you guys hate Edward so much as we really don’t much about him or why he did it. Maybe the author is going to use this part to help explain Edward’s past action. What’s really funny here is that I would’ve been one of the commenters hating Serin too. This is my first time making a comment l, I just had to get this off my chest.

    1. She is behaving like a child, that much is true. I dont know if you have ever served in a army but one of the most important things you learn there is to trust the chain of comand. Unless she had some ultimate game changing information (and she didnt) then she had to follow orders.

      1. My analogy was not to show her being her a child, but why her character didn’t listen to Sungjin. And a child wouldn’t have made it this far. On the point of following orders, from what we know about Serin, she wouldn’t be used to following orders like that (however, it should be said that, I can see why she should’ve followed Keis’ orders). And, also I think my main point was misinterpreted. In my original comment I was suggesting reasons why the numerous comments blasting Serin and the author were unnecessary. And I did that by showing some reasoning for the other side.

    2. Outside in?. I don’t think you are looking in enough, the situation you described fits perfectly with “kei and serin” not ed and serin. Kei is the one who saved and guided her in a world she’s new to. Also made her bit more powerful (chosen one). If she was a 10 yr old kid your logic would be very acceptable. If this was earth even more acceptable but this isn’t. This is a world where you are forced to fight and kill or be killed, get stronger or die now your guardian angel warns you about a particular person in this strange world and yet you act like This?? She isn’t a kid. So that analogy doesn’t fit.. I mean it’s okay to doubt but in this world doubt (she did way more than doubt by playing dumb and not shooting, she knew exactly what she had to do but didnt) could very well means your head off. This is why I said nada wouldn’t do this, even tho author talked little about her she seem way more matured and composed and know what should be done. Not act on stupid feelings. I hope kei tries to kick her out tbh.

      1. My analogy apply to Sungjin, Serin, and Edward as a whole. But it seems you’re focusing on the child part. So I will make a different one. Imagine this: The government deems someone (who you never heard or met before) as extremely dangerous and must be taken out on site. And then upon meeting them, they are everything that goes against what you been told about then. Wouldn’t you at least like to know more about the situation. Also, there were really only two options for her: Follow Sungjin and kill Edward or disobey Sungjin and protect Edward. Do you truly believe she could blindly follow those orders and kill someone. Remember, she just an Olympic Archer and only killed to defend herself. It was between Sungjin’s orders and her guy feelings. And honestly, Nada has nothing to do with this.

        1. Man, if the government condemns someone as a dangerous person, I don’t care if he is good with me, I would call the police for sure, and I advise you to do the same. There is no excuse man, EVEN if Edward is the greatest guy with the greatest reason, EVEN if the MC is wrong, he can’t trust her anymore, MC asked her only one thing in exchange of everything that he gave to her and she simply couldn’t, I really can’t think of a analogy where this is acceptable.

        2. This isn’t a proper analogy at all.

          First of all, I suppose it depends on the country, but usually even governments that aren’t entirely corrupt are generally run by politicians who are more interested in votes than good policy. On the other hand, Sungjin has proven over and over again that he is not selfish nor incompetent. As such, there shouldn’t be a problem regarding reliability.

          Second, there isn’t really a personal connection between individual people and people in the government. So it may be understandable to have trust in the government from that standpoint. However, Serin has interacted with Sungjin, has been saved by him directly, and even knows that he’s from the future. Contrary to your argument, it wouldn’t be “blindly” following Sungjin’s orders.

          Your earlier exactly of a child whose parents forbid to befriend another kid who they deem as unsuitable is actually closer to the scenario, but that’s precisely why people are saying that Serin’s an idiot.

          Think of it this way, if Serin was raped then killed in her previous life and suddenly came back to the past only to find her rapist acting very differently from what she remembered, do you really think it would make sense for her to say “oh, the rapist is actually really nice! He must have had a good reason for raping/killing me…let’s hear him out!”? No, right? So why the hell should she expect Sungjin to hear out his killer from his past life? Her response to Sungjin’s attitude towards Edward is simply moronic.

    3. I don’t hate her as much as the other folks here, but what she did was pretty astonishing and uncomprehensible. She’s not a child, she’s 26 years old, and she doesn’t think that Edward is shady at all. Even though her active mind reading ability was blocked for some reason, and he could potentially tell through her disguises? She should know that there are so many trolls that seem pure on the outside but have ulterior motives on the inside.

      If she has been trusting Sungjin all this time, shouldn’t she let him make the judgement this time, when she doesn’t know Edward’s history? She’s basically going against Sungjin’s judgement with just being with him for most of a single raid. If Edward wasn’t a handsome white guy, and was instead a shady looking middle eastern man or something instead, would she have the same thoughts of protecting him?

    4. You are kidding me right? Kei saved her life and her from being raped in the start, gave her the ability to survive until now and she betrays him for the ONE guy he said he wanted dead. She knew didn’t even know Ed for a single raid, knew he had some protection against mind reading and she still choose to believe in him. If Ed doesn’t have some kind of charm magic I truly and honestly hope she gets killed in the worst possible way in the next chapter.

      She knows that Kei knew things about the future. She knows Ed caused the previous raid to fail. She SHOULD know that Kei is humanitys greatest hope for surival. And she chooses the guy she’ve known for less then a day. I mean honestly after what, fifteen raids she should know that she can’t trust people from her first impression of them? There must have been trolls that’ve been extremely nice untill they got a chance to kill their whole party at this point and she still trust Ed over Kei.

      Your logic regarding a child is true. What is not true however is that Serin isn’t a six year old child. She should have grown out of that mentality long ago. An adult would’ve asked WHY Ed needed to die if she felt it was important to know when Kei told her in the first place, not waiting until it was happening, thus betraying any and all trust Kei put in her.

      The hatred for Edward? Easy to explain. HE TRIED TO KILL KEI! If not for Kei managed to survive long enough for Edward to die first he would have been dead. Now, by all accounts, Edward somehow knew about the ability to restart if you were the last survivor and so, decided to restart the whole thing because he felt that the raid group wouldn’t manage to complete the last couple of raids. From an objective point of view of saving humanity, he might be in the right and from his point of view, he most certainly was. If the novel had been written from Edwards perspective, no one would have blamed him for deciding to kill his whole party to get a restart.
      Thing is though, the novel is written from Keis perspective. We’re all put in Keis shoes with Keis feelings and thoughts. Of course we feel enraged, thinking of the guy that tried to kill us!, Even more so when one of our friends are helping that bastard survive!

      If Serin doesn’t get killed or stripped of her chosen one status I’m seriously think I’m going to drop the novel for how OOC that would be for Kei. So far he collected a team of people with good morals and more importantly, PEOPLE HE COULD TRUST. Serin just proved that when shit goes down and he needs to trust her in a split second she won’t rise to the occasion. Since he can’t trust her anymore he shouldn’t have her on the last raiding party according to his character so far.

  8. Super curious!! Wanna know why Ed kill the team in the previous restart~~~
    Please lets that black glasses show the past! Pleaseee

  9. Unpopular Theory: Edward is actually a good guy. Hear me out on this. Edward knew about the Dark Store early on in both timelines. I believe that Edward spent an ungodly amount of Black Coins at the Dark Store to ask about humanity’s best chance of survival. I also believe the answer he received was as follows: Kill everyone but the MC. Edward then betrayed the final 10 at the last second to send the MC back in time to save humanity.

    1. That’s not an unpopular theory. People just are pissed at Serin for blocking Sungjin just for being in a single raid with Edward, when Sungjin tells Serin that he was a troll in the past cycle. There are lots of trolls that look pure but are killers, and she’s even disregarding Edward’s shady side (e.g. blocking her from reading his thoughts) and protecting him just because she’s been with him for an hour or so.

    2. If only there was some way for the MC to find out what Ed did when he was in Darker Than Black. Some way to see what happened in the gaps in the past. Some item that hasn’t been used yet.

      Can’t think of anything. I guess I should sleep on it.

    3. That theory is certainly possible, but it makes no sense considering that Edward could just have just killed everyone instead and sent himself back in time instead of Sungjin. In fact, it probably is what Edward was trying to do (but ended up failing). If you read the scene about the final battle, it seemed like sheer dumb luck that Sungjin was the final survivor.

      1. Nah, this is very plausible still. In many novels, the MC is sent back because his peers determined that he is best suited for the task and has the best chance of succeeding. Edward may have understood that MC was the best chance for humanity, so he yielded MC the opportunity.

  10. I knew disappointment was coming as soon as she didn’t let him know ASAP, thank god I read spoilers otherwise I would be fuming with rage and despair over not killing edward or over serins thought process.

  11. If Serin doesn’t get killed or stripped of her chosen one status I’m seriously think I’m going to drop the novel, solely for how OOC that would be for Kei. So far he collected a team of people with good morals and more importantly, PEOPLE HE COULD TRUST. Serin just proved that when shit goes down and he needs to trust her in a split second she won’t rise to the occasion. Since he can’t trust her anymore he shouldn’t have her on the last raiding party according to his character so far.

    1. I agree 100%. No reason to have someone on the team who cant be reliable on key moments.

      I wont drop the novel tho. Probably because i read the chapter so long ago,almost two weeks ago, was it? so now my anger towards Serin has deminished.
