t be better for it to go out in a blaze of glory?”

“I just want to be with you for a long time…”

“It can’t be helped.
By the way, it’s starting.”

Where Jae-Gal Rin’s gaze landed, a battle had already began.


Jin Cheon-hee was crouching beside the bed of the future Demon King Yeo Ha-ryun.
Outside, there were shouts and the clash of swords.

Thinking that it had started, Jin Cheon-hee glanced briefly at Yeo Ha-ryun’s closed eyelids.

‘This guy still hasn’t woken up.’

Considering what would happen in his future, it might be better if he doesn’t wake up to this.

‘Isn’t it amazing? So many people have come to kill you.’

Indeed, just a little child.
Just a small child with a secret of his birth.
So many people have been preparing to kill this child.

Yeo Ha-ryun’s hands were still clean.
Hands that had not touched anyone’s blood.
The world had already moved to kill this child.

‘The Cloud Dragon Escort Bureau is strong.
Even if I hadn’t intervened, they would have somehow won.’

Even if the higher-ranked martial artists were affected by the San Gong-Doku, there were still the lower-ranked martial artists.
The strength of the Cloud Dragon Escort Bureau was by no means weak.

But a lot of blood would be spilled, and that would have been a fatal blow to the Cloud Dragon Escort Bureau.

And then, many bureaus would fight fiercely to fill the vacant position left by the Cloud Dragon Escort Bureau, and that would be the beginning of future turmoil.

‘Even in the midst of all this, you sleep well.
Well, I’m not particularly anxious either…’

Jin Cheon-hee stared blankly at his hands.

People were dying outside.

For an ordinary person, it would be normal to tremble with fear.

Because they didn’t know when someone with a sword might appear and kill them.

Yet somehow, he wasn’t afraid.

‘Come to think of it, did I feel this way when distinguishing the people who survived among the corpses…?’

Jin Cheon-hee concluded that something had changed.
Otherwise, he wouldn’t be like this.
Perhaps it was because he had already died once.

‘Well, it’s not common to have an experience of getting shot and dying in a rebellion.’

At that moment, a moan escaped from Yeo Ha-ryun’s mouth.

‘Is he having a nightmare?’

Jin Cheon-hee was taken aback by the beast-like moan that he couldn’t believe was coming from a child.

‘Should I wake him up? No, when I tried to wake him earlier, he didn’t get up.’

Based on what he had observed so far, Yeo Ha-ryun didn’t seem to be having nightmares based on sounds alone.
It might be because of the smell of blood outside.

Jin Cheon-hee pondered and rummaged through the shelf, lighting another scented candle.

He didn’t know what scent it was, but he thought it would be good if it was strong enough to cover the smell of blood.

After lighting three more scented candles, Yeo Ha-ryun’s expression gradually began to calm down.

Seeing the moaning sound also gradually subside, Jin Cheon-hee let out a small sigh of relief.

‘Treat me well.
You bastard.’

But still, he was the protagonist, so it would be nice if he could look at him from a different perspective from now on.

‘Since he’s still a child, there’s probably still a chance to tame him.’

Outside, the fight was still ongoing.
Jin Cheon-hee watched over Yeo Ha-ryun through it.
