Never Die Extra - Chapter 207
Evan D. Sherden, a Decision to Make. (1)
“Who on earth are you guys…”
“Wait a second.”
“Where did I see you…”
“Whose son are you? To be born with blood as thick as a witch……. means that your mother must also be a…”
Evan ignored the witches’ bombardment of questions and attacked simply by throwing a battle bead at the stiff golem.
Under Evan’s order, the other Knights also executed their most powerful skills. The monsters had become scarecrows and couldn’t move properly, having been defeated by the proud Sherden Dungeon Knights!
“Strike them harder! Pour out your magic!”
The ground golem was extremely angry upon realizing his inability to move as they continued to attack him. He had no choice but to cancel his skill due to his slow state, before reaching the motion that could cause an Earthquake.
Evan didn’t mean to humiliate the ground golem like this, but it would’ve been silly of him to miss out on the opportunity. Therefore, Evan decided to kill him first, and then beg for his forgiveness after.
“Oh, anyways, it should be possible to recover this golem’s core. Since golems are ignorant and have high HP, they can only be killed by breaking their core. This is why it’s been difficult to find players who can loot the ground golem’s core even inside the game.”
But of course, there were a lot of perverts that played the Yo-Ma Great War Series, including the rioters, who absurdly acquired the ground golem’s core just by persistently attacking its life points.
However, it was necessary to bring a consumable that exceeded the value of the core of the ground golem to do this. To deal with the core in the first place, the collaboration between a mage who handled unique magic and an alchemist who handled unique skill was necessary. There was no way of obtaining the ground golem’s core unless one was an actual pervert.
“But then we end up obtaining it just like this. Everyone, stop the attack!”
“That’s our Master.”
“Co…Core!? You’re telling me that you want to extract the core of that giant golem!?”
“Will you just be quiet for a second.”
One of the witches who heard Evan’s and the group’s conversation shouted out in surprise, but Evan, of course, ignored her.
“I can’t believe that you’d ignore a compatriot that has come to save you! Although, it doesn’t seem like you need our help!”
“I’m telling you to wait.”
The young witch with dark hair and grayish silver eyes had puffed her cheeks and expressed displeasure, but had still gotten ignored.
“Get out of the way, everyone!”
All of a sudden, the whole body of the ground golem began to shine brightly. This was a phenomenon that appeared when a golem’s stamina dropped to its lowest level!
It could be said that this was the last step in attacking the field boss. But alas, the last step was the most unfortunate!
“Heaven’s Throw! Please do not break the core!”
The rest of Evan’s company, which had already heard this, quickly fell back to the mountains as Evan continued shouting, all while throwing the battle bead he prepared. Then a subspace opened up, and the battle bead was sucked into it.
Shortly after, a huge subspace opened above the head of the ground golem, which was preparing to self-destruct. But before it could, a huge battle bead protruded from within the subspace and destroyed the ground golem’s body with a terrible roar!
The ground golem that was hit by Evan’s Heaven’s Throw had become completely silent. The damage was too lethal for the golem to self-destruct, and it ran out of life and died instead!
“I won! It’s the end of the Yo-Ma Great War Series 3!”
“The battle is over! Everyone is safe!”
“…I wonder if the master could have possibly killed it immediately with a blow from the beginning?”
With everyone cheering, only Serena narrowed her eyes and held a question which no one could answer. Meanwhile, the witchs’ eyes had become blank from the horrible sight in front of them.
“What on earth was that…”
“Unique magic? Meteor?”
“It wasn’t Meteor. I felt the traces of expansion magic and space movement magic. But the result is not magic… What? That’s cheating! I’m telling you it’s a cheat!”
She was not just pretending to be a witch, seeing that she was already trying to guess what Evan’s job was.
He made a gesture to the witches to wait again and jumped over the ground golem’s body. Since the body was lying there, Evan had to finish looting it before it disappeared.
“Okay, I found it.”
The trained alchemist was able to locate the core quickly with his ability to detect magic.
Evan stretched out his hand, which was covered with Heaven’s Press, and began to scour the ground golem’s solid torso, which was like thick mud, and carefully pulled out the core which had been buried deep within.
With little exaggeration, the core, which used to be the size of Evan’s torso, had shrunk to the size of a dodgeball as soon as his hands touched it. However, the density of mana compressed in it was still truly astounding.
Evan never imagined coming here and obtaining a ground golem’s core, and as he looked over it, he was already starting to admire it.
“If I sell this, I could easily buy an entire city.”
“What the hell is this? I can’t believe those people are hunting ancient golems…”
“And they’re our compatriot.”
Evan successfully captured the ground golem’s core and added it to his inventory pocket, then landed on the ground by jumping over the ground golem’s dead body, which was then beginning to disappear.
The ground was still unstable due to the entire dungeon collapsing, but it still wasn’t enough to successfully bury a skilled person like Evan.
“Nice to meet you, witches. Now we can proceed with your questioning.”
Watching Evan use Heaven’s Throw undaunted and give a final blow to the ground golem right in front of their eyes made it intimidating for them to speak to him.
But only the witch who had silver eyes worked up the courage to ask him a question.
“How old are you this year? I am twenty-three.”
“Who told you to start hitting on him?!”
“Back off, Selune.”
After pushing the silver-eyed witch Selune (23 years old, single) away, the other two witches approached Evan. They were all young and beautiful women, but it was possible to speculate that the two were older than Selune.
“Greetings, I’m Melonia from the Witch Forest. You seem to know well about the witch race, so I’m assuming that there should be no need for me to explain it to you?”
“I am Herbene.”
‘The Witch Forest, I had heard of the place a while ago. However, I’ve never seen them in Ctheasil’s village.’
Of course, Evan maintained a calm expression since he didn’t expect Ctheasil’s village to be full of just witches.
“I’m Evan D. Sherden. We hail from the dungeon city of Sherden.”
“Isn’t Sherden a dungeon city in the Silk Line? I guess it isn’t exactly impossible to go there. However, I never imagined a witch settling in the dungeon city full of dangerous humans… Hmm?”
Melonia’s eyebrows lifted. She just realized the meaning of Evan’s name.
“So you’re the son of the city’s ruler? Well, that means…”
“My mother is the first wife of the Marquis of Sherden Sorain. And I am the second son.”
“I can’t believe this, what kind of skill has she used to become the first wife of the Marquis as a witch without any connections…!”
Evan seemed very surprised by the witches’ words. Evan never really thought deeply about that either. Knowing his father’s personality, he would’ve never hesitated to make Evan’s mother his first wife.
Then Herbene, the witch next to Melonia, stepped forward and asked Evan a question.
“Is the little witch behind you, your sister?”
“No, my mother just teaches her, but she isn’t my sister.”
Belois stepped forward and greeted the witches. The two witches looked at her closely and were bemused.
“You are very pretty, and you’re also very strong. I wonder what you’re doing with the Sherdens?”
“You haven’t even had your coming-of-age ceremony yet! However, the magical power that you showed earlier was already beyond an adult witch’s power. Is it because of the dungeon? Then how deep have they been searching at such a young age…!”
Perhaps they didn’t know about the new race yet. Evan shrugged and spoke to the overwhelmed witches, “I can’t tell you about that right now. But this time, I want to ask a question, too. Is it safe to interpret that the purpose of you guys coming here is to save us?”
“Oh, actually, yes. I felt the terrible magic of witches fighting against each other, so I flew right away with my members who were on patrol. But it turned out to be that we were just an interference. There’s no way that such a skill could… I want to ask, but that skill you used…”
“I won’t tell you.”
“I’m sure you won’t.”
Melonia nodded as if she was expecting that response.
She wanted to ask Evan many things, including the debuff he used on the ground golem. However, at the same time, she understood that he wouldn’t tell her anything.
“I don’t know why those from Sherden come to this land, but it seems that you will find no trouble here because of your abilities. So… I have two requests for you.”
Melonia raised two fingers as she spoke. She had fewer manners than those from Ctheasil, Evan thought blankly as the witch folded one of her fingers.
“The witch’s forest is too scarce to maintain a village right now. So, I thought… Belois, do you have any thoughts about living in our village? We will share all of our witches’ knowledge, and we will be able to make you stronger.”
“I have no plans to move into your village. I’m here to serve Master Evan, and I’m certain that this is the way for me to become stronger.”
“Is that so… Then, Evan.”
Melonia replied as she expressed no change in emotion while folding the other finger.
“Do you have any plans to stay in our village for a while?”
“Huh? Do you mean to stay here? Is that all?”
“I mean, not just staying here. If possible, I would like you to make as many witches of our village pregnant during that period.”
There was a mistake in understanding what had occurred here. Yo-Ma Great Wars Series 3 was rated PG-15, but did the Yo-Ma Great Wars 5 release as an adult game?
‘The proposition is quite appealing, but I wish I would’ve enjoyed the event before reincarnation!’
“I know that we have embarrassed you by the sudden offer, but we are serious. So, I hope you think about it seriously.”
“No, I seriously refuse that offer!”
“Belois… Should I just kill them?”
“I’m with you in this case.”
Even though Evan had refused the witch’s offer, Melonia continued to persuade him as she pointed her head towards him. Meanwhile, Belois and Arisha were preparing for battle!
‘Look at this; I knew how this was going to turn out!’
“With your sperm and our thick witch blood, there will surely be a lot of new witches to be born. I’m begging you. We will respond to your requests as much as possible. We witches are a race that maintains youth and beauty for long periods, and there shouldn’t be anything bad on your end.”
“No, absolutely not. Evan’s going to marry me!”
“I told you to back off.”
Selune was quietly listening in the back and began to resist, but Herbene firmly overpowered her as if she already knew this was about to happen.
“You can’t tie someone like Evan to just one person. He’s a public good. His seeds should be shared fairly with everyone.”
“I don’t want to share him with other witches! Besides, once we’re pregnant, he’ll be banished anyways!”
“No, Evan is different from other men. We need help from him, so I’m not going to banish him.”
“No way! I told you he belongs to me first!”
Even though Evan refused, the three witches were going on and on with each other.
Evan listened to the witches, wondering how far they would go. Then Melonia finally spoke up.
“This is ridiculous! You guys sound like Ctheasil!”
“I’m different from Ctheasil. All we need is to protect the man well!”
“Are you ignoring the witch traditions! You want to be exiled, too!?”
‘At this point, I got all the information I wanted. Ctheasil, banished men, protect, exiled.
…And even the skewed sex ratio of the witch village, which is ruled by Ctheasil. Well, I already guessed this from the beginning. But you know what. Why don’t I ask this question at this point?’
“You guys, have you ever heard of the Devil Rune?”
At that moment, the faces of the three witches had become collectively pale.
Their expression was enough. Evan already got the answer.
