Overgeared - Chapter 1383

Madra’s diary that was held by Grid was an incomplete record . It was clearly written by Undefeated King Madra, but it was a diary written after Madra became a death knight . Therefore, the contents were confusing and the delivery power was poor .

In the first place, a death knight was resurrected as an undead using the bones of a person who already died . Using common sense, it was unreasonable to trust and rely on an undead’s diary when the undead had significantly lower cognition compared to when he was alive .

‘The end of the diary is completely unrecognizable . ’

Madra was reluctantly resurrected as an undead and gradually went crazy after hundreds of years . In the end, he cried out strangely . There was no regularity in the sentences he left on paper or his words in the memories he left behind . Even Great Sage Sticks had failed to translate it .

However, Sticks didn’t deny that it was writing or a language . He couldn’t interpret it, but it was hard to see it as just crying . It wasn’t strange to hypothesize that it was the language of the dead, just as the elementals had their own language that humans couldn’t understand .

Indeed, his hypothesis was right . The Orb Made from Galgunos’ Bones found in Talima proved this . The orb’s whispers resembled Death Knight Madra’s screaming .

‘Sticks said he would study the orb to learn the language of the dead . . . ’

It was true that it was stagnant . Sticks’ research had been fruitless for several months . He had no idea at all about when Madra’s diary would be interpreted . The Behen Archipelago Record he acquired now was enough to give Grid new hope .

“M-Must you see this?”

“Yes . ”

Leraje blushed with shame and showed reluctance, but she didn’t have the right to veto it . She failed to stop Grid from opening the diary that contained her shortcomings .

『 The demonic energy of the hell night was removed and day came . The sky brightened and the hell moon dimmed . I was unfamiliar with the landscape of hell that had changed to become like the demon world and Marbas talked about the influence of divinity . Thus, I found out that a god visited hell . 』

A god visited hell . It was Hexetia in the days when he was jealous of humans . The myth that Grid knew was described from the perspective of a third party . The moment the first sentence of the Behen Archipelago Record was displayed, Grid’s view gradually darkened .

He experienced what Leraje did .

***

“Invade the human world?”

Leraje frowned as she opened the official document that came from the First Hell .

“Is it necessary to send me to a place infested only with weak humans?”

The value of struggle shone only when fighting and winning against a strong enemy . Leraje had no reason or interest in harassing the weak, so from Leraje’s perspective, the human world wasn’t a very attractive stage .

“Huhu, if you don’t want to be a toy, then don’t show your feelings against Baal . ”

Marbas immediately restored the official document burned by Leraje and persuaded her .

“Baal has appointed you, so you should go even if you don’t want to . Additionally, the human world isn’t as weak as you think . The reason why the human world is between hell and heaven is because it is qualified . ”

“It is qualified? I wonder if that is really the right expression? If the gods don’t protect the human world in order to accumulate divinity, human beings would have perished immediately . ”

“You can still say that after hearing that Hell Gao was defeated by humans and lost his body?”

“Hell Gao must be immersed in hellfire to show his strength . It isn’t a big deal to defeat someone who is seriously restricted in the human world . ”

“Hrmm . . . You weren’t part of the ‘old human world,’ so you couldn’t feel the notoriety of the seven malignant saints . ”

“The seven malignant saints? Aren’t they beyond humans due to the power they received from the gods? No god has given power to humans since then . ”

“Without divine favor, humans can train and transcend . Or they can build achievements and become legends . Transcendence and legends are the springboards to myths . A representative figure is the Sword Saint who took down Hell Gao . . . ”

“Old man, that’s enough . The task will be completed even if I don’t work hard . So don’t install vain expectations in me . ”

Leraje was skeptical no matter how she thought about it . The human world . . .

Old man Marbas kept saying it would be fun, but it would be a journey without any rewards . There was no anticipation or interest . Nevertheless, Leraje crossed the dimensional portal and headed for the human world with the other demons . Baal wished for it and she had to be obedient . For now, the only way to avoid Baal’s attention was to be a ‘boring chess piece . ’

‘There are still many steps to take until I can confront Baal . ’

The power of the struggle became stronger the more valuable a victory . She had the outstanding potential to meet Marbas’ expectations . Leraje felt her soul burning the moment she crossed the portal to the human world . It was worn down and torn . The side of her soul was obviously smaller . All her stats, including strength, declined .

“ . . . Hrmm . ”

Leraje had a headache from the air of the human world that was too clear and refreshing . She coughed and surveyed the 66 small islands . She had weakened, but she still had no expectations . She thought that anything that existed in the Behen Archipelago wouldn’t be her match as long as it was human or made by humans . The only thing that could be achieved here was a cheap victory . She wouldn’t be able to grow even if she won dozens or hundreds of times . It was a waste of time .

. . . This was a mistake .

“It is so annoying . ”

Leraje felt ridicule when she broke through the first island filled with a large number of monsters . However, she was embarrassed from the second island . There were boxes that were tightly locked . There was the rule of the ‘boxes can’t be smashed’ and at least two of them had to be opened within three days to enter the next island . It was just a headache to find the right key for the boxes . In the end . . .

“Uhh . . . I want to go home . ”

Leraje was eliminated five times from the second island . After the sixth challenge, she could barely enter the third island . She heard the ‘hungry’ signal from her stomach and started to write her diary in an even more depressed manner .

『 Humans devised and installed magic to protect the islands but it is very clumsy . As the trapped demons were confused, I, Supreme King Leraje openly crossed the archipelago . The demons looked up while cheering and the humans felt fear . The arrogant gods in Heaven who couldn’t sit by and ignore my existence were also shocked . 」

“ . . . . . . ”

The first chapter of the record ended and Grid’s first experience of the past was also over . He took his gaze away from the book for a moment and glanced at Leraje .

“Huung~ huung~”

Leraje hummed like it was awkward and hurriedly made irrelevant remarks . She stroked the back of the hell steed with blue flames flying like a mane for no reason . Once she was kicked by its hind legs, she stopped humming and crouched down in the corner .

“ . . . It is the original that hasn’t been edited yet . ”

“Yes, it seems so .

“I’ll make an edited version soon, so give me back the original . ”

“I’m sorry, but I can’t do that . ”

How much distortion did she want to add? The entire record of her meeting with the Undefeated King might be deleted . Then the meaning of gaining the book would disappear .

“Would you like to pick the next treasure?”

The persuasion wouldn’t work so Leraje gave up . She sat looking at the wall and changed the topic .

“Yes . . . ”

Reading the diary in front of the owner was quite rude . . .

The Behen Archipelago Record was placed in the inventory . Grid was anxious that he might not get the remaining compensation if he refused this request and made Leraje angry . This treasure warehouse was owned by Leraje . She had the authority to issue an eviction order at any time and he couldn’t provoke her more than necessary .

“Do you have anything to recommend?”

The greatest presence in the treasure warehouse was the fire maned horse, but Grid didn’t have much interest in it . It was because Grid already had Overgeared Corn . Overgeared Corn’s rough personality was already hard to bear . Nothing good would come of picking the violent horse who even kicked a great demon . He didn’t covet the bloodstone either . Bloodstone was definitely a great mineral, but there was no reason to feel greedy for it as long as he had Greed .

‘It isn’t unique like the moon night iron . It is compatible with demonic energy, but it is unnecessary . ’

There were many ways to make good use of it, but it wasn’t enough to choose as a reward from Leraje .

‘Zepar’s magic sword is also a pass . ’

Zepar wasn’t a demon, but a demonkin . He was a low-ranked demon king who rose to 13th place in hell . His current ranking had fallen quite a bit . Even so, it was clear that he had a good position in hell . However, Grid had Iyarugt who fought with Zepar . He was currently loaned to Peak Sword, but in any case, Grid didn’t need to covet Zepar’s magic sword when he had the one with Iyarugt’s sealed soul .

‘ . . . It is funny to see it now . ’

Grid was looking around the treasure warehouse and wondering what reward would be good when he suddenly smiled . He couldn’t believe he didn’t covet anything from the treasure warehouse of the 10th great demon . He wondered if he had so many things .

‘I might have to build my own treasure warehouse soon .

If he owned so many treasures that it exceeded his inventory and warehouse allowances, he might need to build a separate building . Grid thought about it and realized how rich he had become . He remembered the days when he was poor and deeply felt it .

“W-What?! Why are you smiling?!” Leraje shouted as Grid was looking at the treasure warehouse . She thought that Grid was laughing at her due to the contents of the diary he read a little while ago .

At this point, it was pitiful .

Grid spoke to her as she pulled down the wide brim of her hat and tried to hide her red face, “I just smiled because I had another thought . Did you think I was smiling because of you? I’m not a person who can’t understand the subject enough to laugh at someone stronger than me . ”

He wasn’t talking with any special intentions . Grid was just annoyed with Leraje who kept screeching next to him . He honestly conveyed his position so she would stop shouting . The frankness captured Leraje’s heart .

“Hum hum, I am indeed much stronger than you~ really~ stronger . I like the way you honestly admit it and your cool tone . ”

[Affinity with 10th Great Demon Leraje has risen by 1 . ]

“ . . . . . . ??”

A great demon was absolutely evil . They were the unconditional enemy of humanity . He couldn’t get close to them even if the sky was split in two . He believed this through his many experiences . So why did affinity rise?

“You . . . are you really a great demon?”

“What is your intention behind this question? You are taking too much time to pick . You don’t seem to have a discerning eye for treasure . I will help you . Then what about this? This shield was obtained 159 years ago in a one against one million war . . . ”

“It is garbage . ”

This was a great demon, right? Grid stared with dull eyes and Leraje coughed and avoided his gaze .
