Shiva’s body, which was stuck to the wall for a long time, collapsed.
When his life ended, the curse of Ra also came to an end.

His body was so thin.
It was clear that he must have had an amazing body of a warrior but looking at his body now, he looked like a sick ordinary man.

Isis hugged him as she said,

“Let’s go up now.”

And they headed back to the top of the mountain.
The atmosphere was gloomy but on the other side, people had relieved expressions.

Anyway, the fight here ended in their win.
Right now, everything was over.

Climbing to the top of the mountain, they put the corpse of Shiva down and laid him beside the other warriors.

“Let’s wait until the souls are completely out of the bodies.”

The Ran’s funeral ritual was being held.

The bodies of the dead were placed in the highest location and left there until their souls had completely left.

After that, they believed that the souls would completely ascend to the heavens and be at peace after death.

Then the corpses had to be cremated and buried in their favorite places.
Finally, the bodies would be returned to the ground.
And it was believed that one day they would become stepping stones for their new lives.

“Let us take Lord Shiva’s body and bury it.
At least, the Ran’s have started from him, so our world is the best place for him to be buried.”

Everyone expressed their intention to follow Isis.

Now, in name and reality, she was the King of the Rans and a God.

“You all did well.”

While Isis was sitting on a rock, Mayatrey came next to her.

“How is your body?”

“It is a bit heavy.
Maybe it is because my body isn’t used to it yet.”

“Because of the power of a God?”

“Even though I felt like my body was being remade several times, I just couldn’t get used to it.
It should gradually get better, but how did you end up here?”

She couldn’t ask before because there was no time, but Mayatrey’s presence here was unexpected.

Not just that, but the rumors about the traces of Shiva, the God of War, existing in the Rotomo Strait were also said to have originated from her.

What could that mean?

“It will be a bit long to explain, but….”

The first time Mayatrey came here was a while ago.

Around three years ago.

To be specific, it was right after the battle of the dragons.
A great battle that took place in the Dragon Mountains.

A great incident occurred in which the Lord died and all the dragon clans except the Blue Clan were considered criminals.

However, what shocked Mayatrey more than anything was the death of the Dragon God, who was considered to be the best.

“I left my base right then and headed for the Dragon Mountains.”

She was a traitor to her clan, but she had lived as a member of the dragons, so she went there feeling concerned about the situation.

Above all, her family was there.
However, on the way to the mountains, she heard something strange.

“I heard something coming from the Western Sea, so I turned there without realizing it.”

The place she headed to as if she were possessed was the Rotomo Strait, the sixth Ban.
Of course, to her, a dragon, the Bans were ridiculous.

In the first place, dragons were known to have crossed the limits of humans and any other species a long time ago.
In a way, they were the Lords of monsters.

Mayatrey was able to reach the source of the sound, and then she met Shiva.

“He had just woken up then.”

Shiva made many requests to Mayatrey about everything, from the situation of the world to the future.

She didn’t know why, but he trusted her right away, even though it was their first time meeting.
But Shiva said that he knew from the start that she was different from the other dragons.

Normally, it would have been dismissed as an old man’s nonsense, but she also realized how important Shiva was, so she had no choice but to help him.

“Because of that, I couldn’t visit my family even when the war was happening, and even after so much time, I didn’t know if they would even welcome me if I visited them.”

“In the first place, the fault is on their side, so the things you worry about won’t happen.
So don’t worry.
What is the meaning of that place after the Dragon God died?”


The Dragon God was the reason Mayatrey despised the dragons so much.

To be precise, it was because of the 12 Gods.

Because they oppressed the humans and killed them, including her lover, she couldn’t do anything.

“The Blue Clan moved right outside the mountains after that.
Simply put, they did not want anyone intervening in the matters of the clan.”


“Everything is over.
And, your father will miss you too.”

“I guess so.”

To be honest, she felt a bit guilty.

For her, the Blue Clan was her family.
When she thought she wouldn’t have to worry about that anymore, she felt relieved.

Mayatrey said,

“Anyway, let us continue talking… No, there is nothing more to say.
I was with Shiva for three years, and we talked about how the world would change and what to do.
And today, this happened.
The talk is over.
Anything else?”

“You must be the most upset.”

For a little over three years, she had stayed with Shiva, which meant she felt a bit attached to him.

She must be the saddest one here, but she actually wasn’t sad.

There was no way she hadn’t come to like the man in the last three years, but she was calm.

Isis asked,

“You are not that sad?”

“Because I know everything.”

She didn’t show it today, but she knew Shiva had suffered so much.
Was it because he was a God that he had endured all this time?

Or was it because he didn’t want to give up until the end?

She always felt bad when she looked at him, but when he took his last breath, she felt better.

“My heart is a bit heavy, but I feel more relieved to think that he has been freed from the pain.”

“I see.”

“So it is your turn.
Follow the rest of what he gave you, and do well in the future.”

“That is burdensome.”

Isis spoke frankly.

Although she suddenly made progress due to her emotions, she became a God overnight, so it wasn’t easy to get used to.

Rather, it was burdensome.

She couldn’t immediately adapt to the change, and even though she had succeeded him, she would have to fulfill the will of the man whom she met for the first time today.

“It is not an easy task.
I get it.”

“Well, things will work out.
I’m not fighting alone.”

Now, she had colleagues beside her.
And among them, there were those who were ferocious too.

Compared to before, the situation has definitely improved a lot.
Even though the world was a mess, their chances of winning had increased.

Now that she had the confidence, she could try things again.

“Let’s go back.”

They had many things to do.

“I will put them in the subspace.
I will be with them during the funeral too.”


Isis expressed her gratitude for Mayatrey’s kindness.

Then she put her hand on Sarah’s head, who looked sad.

“Let’s go.
There is a lot for us to do.
You need to train a lot more so you can use what Shiva gave you.”

“So stop being sad.
Even Shiva wouldn’t like seeing you like this.”

How could a dead person feel sad now? But Sarah just nodded her head, and Isis led her warriors down the rocky mountain.

The water below was rough, with huge monsters appearing, but they were able to move forward without any glitches.

When they finally arrived on land, Mayatrey said,

“Since we are out of that place, let’s use Warp.”

The place where the rocky mountain was located wasn’t ideal for using magic like Warp.

It didn’t matter if it was magic similar to teleportation since it was as easy as breathing for the dragons, but Warp needed more accuracy even for the dragons.

“I will make the magic circle, so wait for a while.”

“Thanks to that, we can move comfortably, right? Sarah?”

“Ah? Ah, right.
We skip training!”

Sarah’s eyes shone.

It would take a lot of time to head back on foot, and then Isis would have trained her horribly all the way back.

Thinking that it was okay now, she felt relieved.

However, Sara felt something ominous in the way Isis laughed.


“W-Why are you smiling like that?”

“The faster we go, the more relaxed we move, and then… you roll on… no, train…”

She surely said roll.

Sarah tapped her ears, wondering if she heard something wrong.

“Let us go and train hard.
Doing it during break time is not to my liking.
Sweating from actual training is right.”

“Even when doing it at breaks, we sweat a lot.”

“Not enough.
It’s too short.
Do you understand Sarah? Stamina builds better when you keep going.”

Sarah felt her back become wet.

“I am ready.”

At that time, Mayatrey had completed the magic circle, and the coordinates were what Isis had informed her.

All the warriors stood on top of the magic circle.

She only had to activate it.
Mayatrey asked if everyone was ready.


When Isis was about to nod,

“Phew. I was almost late.”

A familiar voice pierced the ears of Isis.
And it wasn’t just her.
All the warriors turned to the spot where they heard the voice.

“I am glad that everyone is fine.”

“… Father.”

Hasyath smiled, looking at his daughter.

“Thank goodness you are back alive.”

“F-Father for real?”

Isis looked at her father in shock.

Her father faced Hungry Spirit all alone to save their race.
No matter how strong he was, he couldn’t go against a God, it was impossible.

She thought he was dead for sure too, so she couldn’t move.

Isis placed her hand on her sword.
The enemy could be deluding her.

It was purely an unwelcome situation, and Isis seemed heartbroken, but the safety of her people was more important.

“We need proof.
Prove that you are my father.”

“Look, Isis! That person is Mr.

Why are you doing this?”

A few warriors were shocked at her actions, but Isis didn’t care and looked at her father with cautious eyes.


Hasyath’s eyes widened in shock.
But he soon had a satisfied expression.

Rather, if you had come running, I would have been more disappointed.”


Proof, then this?”

Hasyath tapped the jewel on his finger.
The gem filled with light, and Hasyath’s aura glowed.

The power that Isis had seen and felt for a long time.

It was impossible for her to forget it.

Letting go of the sword, she ran straight to his arms.


It is me.
It is nice to see you again.”

“I thought you died…”

“I thought so too.
I got lucky.”

“I am glad you are alive.”

“Rather, a lot has changed.”

At a glance, Hasyath noticed the great power that Isis possessed.
She wiped the tears from her eyes.

“I have a lot of things to tell you.
Let us head back.”

Let’s do that.”

Normally they weren’t this friendly, but today they seemed to be the closest in the world.

Sarah, who watched this, recalled her old memories.
She wiped a drop of tears with her sleeve.

“Thank goodness.”

It was now time to head back.
