Destroying My Own Novel-Chapter 553 552: One Last Thing.
Mykel grabbed her in the face and he finally could enjoy the expression that Mara made. She looked terrified and petrified that her pupils were shaken by the fact that the system had totally abandoned her. He then lifted her up from the ground as he tightened his grip on her face and crushed her skull so slowly.
"Please, forgive me..." Mara trembled as she held Mykel's wrist with both hands. "I was wrong, I didn't try to defy you. It was the system. I was doing what I was told..." Mara explained as she looked Mykel in the eye with fear.
"Cry for me," Mykel said with a smirk.
"Spare my life, Mykel... no, my creator..." Mara's eyes glimmered in tears.
Mykel scoffed as he kept crushing her head and heard Mara scream and beg for her life. He didn't care about whatever she was saying and then he crushed her head after he heard her final scream of pain. Her body was twitching for a few seconds and Mykel watched it until her body finally stopped moving.
"Clean all the mess," Mykel said as he threw Mara's body away.
[Recovering all the damages]
[Recreating the destroyed solar systems]
Mykel watched the destroyed solar systems around him slowly be recreated and placed where they belonged. He no longer had to use his [Admin] skill or open a prompt to modify everything. All he had to do was to give commands to the system and it would start to do what it was told to do.
"Separate my soul from Bhatmelec's and Lucifer's souls. Bring them both back to life," Mykel said as he looked at the burned pack of cigarettes in his hand.
[Lucifer's soul has been recovered]
[Lucifer has been resurrected]
[Bhatmelec's soul has been recovered]
[Bhatmelec has been resurrected]
Lucifer and Bhatmelec appeared right behind Mykel, and they both realized something was different about them. They felt like they were really alive, and they had forgotten how nice it was to be alive.
"Congratulations, Mykel," Lucifer said as he looked at Mykel's back. "What are you going to do now?" Lucifer asked with his arms crossed.
"You know what I'm going to do," Mykel turned around with a smirk on his face.
Jeanne was sitting on the edge of the cliff as she hugged her own legs and stared at the lake below her. She looked at how calm the lake was and since all the lives had been annihilated, there were no schools of fish.
She listened to the people in the village enjoying the harvest of the wheat and potatoes that they planted. She didn't even remember how long it had been, she remembered vaguely that it had been two decades since that day when Mykel was brought by Mara.
Since she was a Goddess she had become immortal and she didn't age ever since. Asmond also didn't age much because he was a Demi-god, but Rufus and the others grew older.
"Jeanne, I brought you a sweet potato..." Asmond said as he stood behind Jeanne. He looked worried because she hadn't eaten anything for decades. "I know that you don't feel hungry, but you must eat something," Asmond continued.
"Stay away from me," Jeanne said with hatred in her voice.
Asmond's face was grim and then put the plate full of sweet potatoes right behind Jeanne. "I'll leave it here," Asmond said, and then left her alone.
Jeanne didn't even bother to touch it and stayed there for hours without moving a muscle. She didn't realize that nighttime had come, and everyone had gone to sleep because they had nothing else to do. She then heard the crunch of footsteps on the gravel behind her, and she was holding her breath to hold her annoyance.
"I told you to leave me alone. How many times do I have to tell you?" Jeanne asked.
Although she said that, she could feel a presence behind her and when she was about to turn around, someone sat next to her. She looked at the person and tears immediately glimmered through her eyes. Tears were falling down her chin and she saw Mykel eating the sweet potato.
"It tastes good, open your mouth," Mykel said as he offered the sweet potato to Jeanne.
Jeanne opened her mouth and took a bite of the sweet potato as she sniffled. She chewed it up and slowly wrapped her arms around Mykel's body and hugged him so tightly.
"I miss you so much..." Jeanne started sobbing.
"Me too. Did you wait long?" Mykel wrapped his left arm around her back and started to stroke it gently.
"No," Jeanne answered as she rubbed her face against Mykel's chest. She missed the scent of his body, and it gave her unbelievable comfort.
Mykel stayed there until Jeanne fell asleep on his lap so soundly and she didn't want to let go of him by holding his hand so tightly.
"Mister Mykel?" Edith's voice could be heard from behind.
Mykel turned around and saw Edith covering her mouth with both hands. She was crying and immediately ran toward him and sat right behind him as she wiped the tears from her eyes.
"I'm back, Edith. Sorry if I took you so long," Mykel said as he looked at the stars. "Do you want to see your daughters?" Mykel asked.
"Yes, please... it has been twenty years and I believe they have grown up," Edith answered as she nodded her head and sniffled.
"You don't have to worry about that, Edith. They're still as young as you remember, and they don't even realize that time has passed for twenty years. If you're in heaven, you won't realize how time flies by, and you won't age in there as well. They won't even know you were gone that long," Mykel explained. "I'll send you there now," Mykel said.
"Wait, if that's the case, let me stay here a bit longer. I want to meet Gunnar and the others first, Mister Mykel. I want to see them again," Edith replied.
"Bring Enma with you, I'll wait at the same spot where we fought back then," Mykel said.
Edith nodded her head and hurriedly left to pick Enma up, and then Mykel flew with Jeanne in his arms. When he arrived, he looked at an area near the Lucifer Tower that had been turned into a graveyard.
"Bring them back to life," Mykel commanded the system.
[Gunnar Fenmeyer has been resurrected]
[Rozan Aubern has been resurrected]
[Gerrard Tal has been resurrected]
[Aurea Mazier has been resurrected]
[Lillith Morth has been resurrected]
[Vincze Lazlo has been resurrected]
[Nagy Elsbeth has been resurrected]
[Sven Micallef has been resurrected]
Mykel watched them crawl out of their graves, and the moment they managed to get to the surface, they all gasped for air. They all looked at each other with confused looks, but then they all looked around and saw Mykel sitting on top of a big stone with Jeanne sleeping on his lap.
"Boss!" Gunnar screamed in excitement and in disbelief.
Gunnar's voice awoken Jeanne, and she slowly opened her eyes because she believed she had just heard Gunnar's voice. She was jolted and sat up when she saw Gunnar and the others come back to life. She immediately jumped down and hugged Nagy and Lillith.
"I didn't get a hug?" Aurea asked Jeanne.
"Aurea," Jeanne smiled as she sniffled and then hugged Aurea so tightly.
Mykel watched them hugging each other, and he wanted to have a smoke since it had been months for him.
"Give me a pack of cigarettes," Mykel commanded the system.
The system gave him a pack of cigarettes, and when he opened the pack, he realized something. The pack of cigarettes that the system gave him was the pack of cigarettes that he used to smoke in the real world. He looked at it and didn't know if he should be amazed or terrified by it.
Edith came with Enma, and Enma was dumbfounded when she saw Gunnar alive. She ran as fast as she could and hugged him so tightly. She cried so loudly while everyone was watching her from the sides.
"This place is too gloomy, I'll send you somewhere that's more appropriate for the occasion," Mykel said and snapped his fingers.
Everyone was sent to the Empyrean World, but Mykel stayed behind.
"It's time to fulfill my own wish," Mykel said as he looked at the village.
