Jamie rubbed his stomach and stood up.

It seemed like her fist hit the right spot, and it now felt like his insides were a mess.

“I want to hit you more, but I am glad it ended like this.”


He had an awkward smile as he looked at Sarah, who spoke softly.

In other words, if two punches were the punishment he would get for the crimes he committed, it was too cheap.

Sarah glared at Jamie with clear eyes, but then she sighed and relaxed her expression a bit.

Are you really fine now?”

I am really fine.
I will not be like that anymore.”


Sarah let out a deep sigh of relief as she realized that her brother had returned to his old self.

Sarah squatted down and smiled at Jamie’s face.

“Come on.”

I am back.”

The siblings looked at each other and smiled.
And Jamie told Sarah,

“Rather, you seem bigger? Almost all of your childish looks are gone.
I couldn’t recognize you.”

“Are you joking?”

“Joke? I am being serious.
You have grown a lot, too.
You lost your baby fat.
Above all, you have become so beautiful.”

“Yes, I am.”

At her brother’s compliment that came out of nowhere, Sarah felt a bit shy and cleared her throat.

“I was dying every day.
I only swung my sword.
Far from being pretty, I heard I was like a man.”

“Who is that bastard who called you a man? I will hit that guy with a flick.”

It is fine.
I am happy if I can get my brother back.”

She was being honest.

Now that her brother was back, the pain she had gone through in the past felt like nothing.
The smile wouldn’t leave her face at the thought of her estranged family being one again.

“We can go see Mother now.”

Her mom rarely talked about her brother.
Even when Sarah would bring up the topic, she was very reluctant to talk about him.

She intentionally avoided it.

At first, she thought it was because she hated Jamie, but when she came home, her mother would always look at the Black Tower.
She wouldn’t even take her eyes off that place.

Then she realized why she was not talking about Jamie—it was for her own good.

“Mom will be the happiest.
She might have a heart attack, so we need to prepare her first.”

“Is there anything I cannot say to Mother?”

She will be that happy.”

Jamie chuckled at the joke.


Sears’s face—he still remembered it.
Her voice and smell were as clear as if he had met her the day before.

Would she still be the same?

More than three years had passed, and a lot should have changed.

He was supposed to be by her side to protect her, but he couldn’t because his father had lost his life, and he felt lost.

Could he atone for his sin of not being a filial son now?

If she threw him out, his heart might break.

‘Still, I need to stand in front of her.’

If he committed a crime, then it was right for him to be punished, and Jamie didn’t want to avoid it any longer.

He didn’t want to run.

If he could get out of here, he would see his mother.
If he could get out of here.

I will be back soon.”

“Uh? What?”

“The evil that occupies my body.”

When Sarah was about to ask him what he was talking about,


The space of darkness they were in had expanded like an explosion and turned white.

Sarah screamed as she flew back in shock, and Jamie held her with magic, and then he divided and isolated the space.

The expansion of the space wouldn’t stop, and the shockwaves that were being emitted didn’t reach the isolated space.

On the other side of the white space, thick darkness filled up.

Jamie saw a black-haired man rising from the darkness.


Sarah looked back and forth between the black-haired man and Jamie.
Her brother’s consciousness had fully awakened and regained its original form.
So it was right for Diablo, who had given up his emotions, to vanish.

Then why was the black-haired Diablo in front of her?

Jamie answered,

“That guy is kind of a program.”

“W-What is a program?”

To put it in layman’s terms, it is a robot created to get rid of my emotions as easily as possible.”

It was a device created to escape Jamie’s suffering when his consciousness was tinged with darkness.

The problem was that he had a strong desire to abandon everything at that time, so the authority given to him was high.

Even to the extent that Satan, who was dormant in his brain, had been removed to get rid of his emotions.

Its power was similar to Jamie’s, maybe even higher.

“The release of emotions is not allowed.
Perish now.”

Diablo reached out, and darkness began to move and shoot like rays toward the divided and isolated space.

Jamie raised his black mana and broke Diablo’s attack.


However, the opponent’s strength was beyond what he could handle, so Jamie’s body was pushed back.

If Sarah hadn’t stopped him, it was uncertain how far he would have been pushed back.

Diablo approached the space that Jamie had made.

“The existence of your emotions is not right.
You don’t need anything to achieve your goals.
Those that disturb you should vanish.”

[Ability: Darkness]

The Darkness of Annihilation began to erase the space that Jamie had made.

Jamie bit his tongue and made magic that he pushed toward Diablo.

[Transcendence Magic]

[Scattering Meteor Shower]

Meteorites, burning in five colors, were summoned to fall on Diablo.
It was magic that was created by combining the diffusion, acceleration, and pushing properties of Meteor Strike, which was a 9th-class magic spell.

And the Darkness of Annihilation was cleared at once.
Diablo spoke with his eyes glowing purple,

“You foolish one.
Your purpose is to burn the Sun God.
But you have now become unfit to achieve that.
If you don’t want to mess up everything, just accept your death.”

I realized I was wrong.
Your existence is my mistake and the cause of my failure.
Nothing else is needed to defeat Ra.
Just my will.”

“You have become more stupid.
It is fine.
I will do what I need to do.
Removing your emotions.”

Magi began to flow from Diablo’s body.

It was the power of Satan.

Jamie’s expression changed at that point.

“This is bad.”

It was safe to say that the existence of both Jamie and Diablo had the same power.
It was because they both borrowed power from Jamie Welton’s body.

The problem was the magi.

Unfortunately, the Jamie here was made up of consciousness before he was eroded by magi.
That meant that he couldn’t use magi that existed in his main body.

Diablo was the owner of his main body now, which was why he could use magi.

And that made a clear difference between the two of them.

“It is fine.”

Sarah, who was behind him, spoke.

“I can fill in what Brother lacks.”


Jamie turned around with a face that asked, ‘What are you saying?’

And his eyes went wide.

His little sister from before was now gone, and there stood a woman in a pure white dress with beautiful, flowing green hair.

The soft, flowing green light was something Jamie had felt before.


“It is too long to talk about it now.
Let us discuss it after defeating him.”

“Is my little sister strong?”

“I will show you what I have become in these three years.”

Sarah smiled, merging the life force with her aura, and wrapped it around her sword.
It was hard to do it alone, but with her brother to fill in her lacking parts, it was enough.

Jamie also nodded, like that would be better.

‘When did she grow up this much?’

It seemed that not being able to see her growth would be his biggest regret in life.
Jamie smiled as he stretched out his hand in the air.

He grabbed Balisada.

And Diablo also did the same.

“Brother will be the main, and I will be the support.
Got it?”

“Now you are giving orders to your brother.
The only time Sarah had ordered me was when we were playing house.”

“You are talking about such a long past.”

“Let us play house again when we get back.”

“I am past that age!”

“Here I go!”


Jamie and Sarah used their strength and threw themselves at Diablo.
Seeing them, Diablo swung his sword.


The pitch-black slash split the space into two.

He had never imagined this before.

The image of the two of them fighting together.
It was because he wanted his one and only cute little sister to live in peace, not knowing about the world.

A battlefield full of blood and death wasn’t what he wanted Sarah to know.

He didn’t want her to set foot in such a place, and he thought she would live like that.

‘Maybe I was too careless.’

Jamie pushed back his sword, which faced Diablo, and backed up.

And Sarah appeared in her white, fluttering dress, aiming for Diablo, who was unbalanced, and thrusting her sword.

When Diablo tried to use Future Walker, Sarah used it too.

“You cannot use that ability!”

When similar abilities were used, it would become impossible to check the number of cases against each other.
Diablo, with an annoyed look on his face, opened up a shield and blocked Sarah’s sword.

“As expected, I need to bring you down first.”

Diablo extended his hand toward Sarah.

No matter how much Sarah held the opposite nature of his power, it would be impossible for her to block the black mana with magi.

I don’t know how you can use Future Walker, but let us talk about it once this is over.”

At that moment, Jamie dug forward and swung the Balisada at Diablo, and he had no choice but to teleport.

Jamie pulled the space as if he had no intention of letting him escape.



The teleportation failed, and Diablo, who appeared from half a distance away, frowned.

Jamie formed darkness into the shape of a blade, and Diablo created the same darkness to counter it.


Darkness exploded.

Diablo took off his cloak and threw it forward.
As soon as the remnants of darkness touched the cloak, holes began to pierce it.

Since the opponent also used the same ability, it would be fatal if the aftermath of the explosion got too close to him.


Diablo looked down, as if something felt strange.

Tree roots were slowly moving up his legs.
It was strange because there were no trees around, and it was impossible for them to even climb up his legs.

And green light shone through them.

“Mother Goddess, who created numerous lives, can also reap them down.”


The roots began to get thicker.
Conversely, Diablo felt his power draining.

[Transcendence Magic]

“You cannot beat us all alone.”

[Bridle of Gluttony]

“Even though we haven’t seen each other for a long time, we are siblings.”

Diablo’s eyes went wide as the power of darkness attacked him.
In front of his eyes, he saw two long yellow eyes.


The power of gluttony consumed Diablo.
Even Diablo couldn’t handle it when his movements were restricted.

What is the strength of a family?

If it had been Jamie Welton alone, Diablo wouldn’t have been pushed back this much, not to mention Sarah Welton.

The power of Gaia was troublesome, but her strength wasn’t much of a bother.
However, when the two of them combined, they could clearly push him back.

‘By removing all my emotions, I need to become invincible.’

To bring Ra down, he had to become stronger.

“I have saved this because you aren’t strong.
But I won’t anymore.”

Diablo’s purple eyes shone brightly.

“I will show you the power of the Demon King.”

Horns began to grow on either side of his head.
