Chapter 268

RMSBS - Episode 268 . The Beast of Revelation (8)


The light was gone .

The soldiers’ march continued on the main street of Pittsburgh, which was now covered in darkness .

Divide’s army and the Allied Forces that were besieging the Beast of Revelation began retreating . The moment the Beast had released its power, Desir ordered everyone to fall back .

The marching soldiers could not help turning their heads towards the Beast, casting anxious glances at it .

The thunderbolts were continuously gathering and forming an enormous sphere . It was difficult to speculate what kind of power that sphere possessed .

*Crrrash*

*Crrrrrash*

Lightning strikes burst out from the source of light that shone like a miniature sun .

It was a sight that was reminiscent of the end of the century .

“How is he going to stop that by himself… ”

The majority of the people there had similar thoughts .

It had already been proven that Desir’s skills left no room for doubt, but they could not see how he would be able to stop it by himself .

Just when many of them were in despair, something changed at the silver tower .

Innumerable symbols appeared at the spot where a strange spell array was unfolding .

*Cliiiiing*

And in time, the light formed into something .

“… A bow?”

The moment everyone’s attention was focused on someone’s mumble, the Beast of Revelation began to move .

*Zzzzzzzzap*

A sphere made out of thunderbolts distorted and was suddenly launched towards Desir at a tremendous speed .

*Baaaaaaang*

As the thunderbolt, compressed to its limit, was shot, Pittsburgh, which had been immersed in darkness, became covered with dazzling light .

The thunderbolts became a wave and swallowed up everything in its path .

The soldiers, unable to do anything other than watch, were frozen with fear .

However, Desir calmly looked at the disaster coming in and spoke indifferently .

[Arrow of Destruction]

At that moment, an arrow of light shot out from the bow that had formed in front of Desir .

*Crrrrrrrrash*

A roaring sound resonated almost at the same time .


The arrow that was shot, which seemed as if it were capable of dividing the world, created a red line from which a red flame rose up from .

Everything that touched the flame disappeared without a trace .

The waves of thunderbolts were no exception .

*Crrrrash*

The humans were in disbelief .

The blazing red flames devoured the waves of lightning .

The enormous thunderbolts lost their form and disappeared in the heat of the red flames that rose from the arrow .

The heart of the enormous wave of thunderbolts was dispersing .

The arrow continued through and pierced the Beast of Revelation .

*Baaaaang*

The moment the arrow pierced through the Beast, an enormous pillar of flame soared up from where it landed .

A burning heat blanketed all of Pittsburgh .

“My god… ”

Someone mumbled .

Everyone who was watching this sight felt the same way . All the people busy retreating stopped in place and were not able to take their eyes off the overwhelming sight .

Desir’s spell was clearly beyond the Seventh-Circle, a level considered to be the highest tier that humans could reach .

“With this… … ”

“It may be possible . ”

It was not long before the heat gradually subsided and the flames disappeared .

Amid the thick clouds of smoke, humans truly wished for a sight of nothingness .

[Time and time again, you don’t let me down . ]

The low-pitched voice penetrating their mind destroyed their hope .

[But again, it was not enough . ]

The Beast of Revelation, now reduced to half its original size, appeared amid the flames that were subsiding .

The mythical monster could not be stopped even though Desir showed miraculous power beyond the limits of humans .

“… … It’s over . ”

The high hopes of the humans collapsed and they were struck with even greater despair .

It was a long battle indeed .



The Beast of Revelation began approaching the silver tower in order to end the battle .

However, not long after, it was stopped .

Its astonished thought resonated .

[What… … !]

The light gathered once again and formed a bow at the top of the tower .

*Baaaaaaang*

A huge pillar of flames soared and a scream-like roar erupted almost simultaneously .

At the top of the silver tower .

Desir spoke as he watched the Beast of Revelation let out a piercing scream .

“If that wasn’t enough, I’ll just shoot again . ”

An arrow was shot from his hand once more .

Arrow of Destruction was a spell that used the energy of the sun, the largest source of energy in the world .

As long as there was a sun, it was possible to use its infinite power over and over again .

The light in Pittsburgh dimmed once again as Desir harnessed the entirety of it .

*B-B-B-B-B-Bang*

The sound of explosions did not stop .

With each arrow fired, another pillar of flame soared and shattered the sky .

The size of the Beast of Revelation gradually decreased due to the incredible heat that burnt even the thunderbolts .

A mythical monster .

A mythical being that destroyed innumerable civilizations was being ravaged by a single human being .

‘There are two ways to destroy the Arrow of Destruction . ’

The first method was to invert the spell technique itself, the very core of the Arrow of Destruction . In his previous life, Desir and his comrades had done just that when they fought Bhromier Napolitan, pressuring the dragon to give Desir the time necessary .

However, this was only possible because it was Desir who did it . Therefore, it was an impossible choice for the Beast of Revelation .

The second method was quite simple . One only had to kill the magician who was arranging the spell .

Killing Desir, the person arranging the spell, or destroying the tower itself, which was being used to sustain the spell, would end it .

This second method was much simpler relative to the first method .

‘But . ’

*Crrrrash*

A tail made out of thunderbolts fired, penetrating the pillar of flames accompanied by the sound of thunder .



However, it was unable to reach Desir .

The thunderbolt tail gradually disintegrated and soon disappeared as if it had evaporated .

‘That should be impossible as well . ’

With the projectile stopped and the fire beginning to clear up, a melted down, pitch-black, gigantic figure revealed itself . It had suffered so much that it was unable to maintain its Origin Form any longer .

It had consumed most of its mana and no longer had any power to attack .

“This is the end . ”

Right before the arrow was shot, the Beast and Desir exchanged glances .

It was a moment of tranquility .

The Beast of Revelation did not show further resistance; whether it had exhausted every option or not, it had admitted its defeat .

[In the end, I was the one who wasn’t good enough . ]

Its thought resonated once more, and Desir drew his bow .

* * *

Pittsburgh Palace .

There was a hollow cave thousands of feet below .

“That’s impossible . ”

Skull Mask’s mumbling echoed in the cave .

The cave had been retrofitted, installed with numerous test tubes and futuristic looking scientific tools, along with a plethora of artifacts . Spell arrays lined the inside of the cave, clearly archaic in arrangement .

Skull Mask was looking into a mirror, The Mirror That Holds Shadows, which had been moved from the central command room .

The inside of the cave shook, along with the sound of an explosion that could be heard even from deep underground .

That was all . Despite the great collision between the Beast of Revelation and Desir, this place was still unscathed .

After all, this was the power source .

This was the most important place in Divide . The most important place on the continent . Here, in this room, was the power source for all the towers he had constructed, the most necessary tool for fulfilling his purpose .

Skull Mask had strengthened the facility’s defense system by using all of the methods at his disposal, all to protect the source .

However, all of these measures were about to become meaningless .

Even if powerful defense systems were made, it would still be impossible to stop the Allied Forces if they attacked the cave directly .

Skull mask grumbled .

“How did they destroy the Beast of Revelation with technology from this era… ”

No matter how much Desir Arman had prepared, no one knew more about the Beast of Revelation than Skull Mask .

He had delayed his plan, despite it nearing fruition, in order to dispose of his enemies once and for all .



“Desir Arman… … ”

However, Desir surpassed all expectations . Even though he included Desir as an unpredictable variable, capable of defeating Dadenewt and pulling off other impossible feats, the Allied Forces shouldn’t have been capable of defeating the Beast .

The Mirror That Holds Shadows informed him that two fleets were approaching Pittsburgh .

‘The Master of the Magic Tower, the Saint, and the King of the North?’

The situation was becoming worse and worse . He was already overwhelmed with just the people in Pittsburgh, but he would soon need to contend with the strongest people on the continent .

It was now impossible to stop them with Divide’s army .

This was made even harder because Brepon, the commander-in-chief, had even been turned against him . Divide was no longer on his side .

Skull Mask did not think that it would be possible to confront all of Divide’s army and the Allied Forces, no matter how strong he was .

The power source had to be protected at all costs . If he could not win by fighting, he had to run away and plan for the future .

Desir Arman .

If only Desir was gone, there would be no one to stop his plan .

Though it would be nice if he could immediately eliminate him, Skull Mask, an immortal, had another way .

Even Desir would not be able to overcome the passage of time as long as he was a human being . All Skull Mask had to do was wait for him to die of old age and start planning once again .

However, Skull Mask did not choose to do so .

He held an intense grudge .

Skull Mask had never felt such an intense hatred during his long life .

He had abandoned all of his personal feelings, in order to walk the path that would fulfill the will of the Goddess .

But not now .

“I will kill you right here without fail . ”

Skull Mask stood up with determination . He strode towards the power source .

He put his hand on it . His crazy eyes lit up in the darkness .

The spell arrays shone faintly inside the cave .

Someone’s shadow appeared behind Skull Mask .
