Book 11, Necropolis of the Gods – Chapter 5: Bebe’s Revenge

Moller township, despite being just a township, had status that was almost on par with most prefectural cities, because the thousands of residents of Moller township all belonged to one clan. This clan, centuries ago, was a very ordinary one, but after producing the earth-style Grand Magus Saint, Rudi, the entire clan’s status had skyrocketed.

However…

Right now, the central building in the township had collapsed, and the corpse of an enormous Black Dragon of the ninth rank lay there, coiled in the middle of the debris. A hole had been drilled through the head of this Black Dragon. Right now, all the residents of this township were staring with terror at the scene playing out in mid-air.

The, to them, incomparably exalted Grand Magus Saint, Rudi, was being absolutely trampled by a black rat-type creature, without any chance of fighting back.

Rudi’s clothes were tattered, and his Sacred Earthguard Armor had been ripped apart early on by eighteen successive lightning-fast claw attacks from Bebe. Bebe’s raw attack power was actually a bit higher than even that of Linley’s, and in twelve years, he had gained some insights into the Laws as well.

Those eighteen successive claws was the technique which Bebe was most skilled at.

Even something as powerful as a Saint-level Earthguard Armor had been broken through.

“If you want to kill me, then kill me. Why are you doing this? Did Linley order you to come?” Rudi roared with fury and grief. He had heard that Linley possessed a Saint-level rat-type magical beast with black fur. He didn’t expect that he and Linley actually had enmity between them!

But the only reply he got was another claw. “Ah!” Rudi’s entire body spasmed in agony, and yet another large chunk of flesh and blood was ripped from his body. Even his face had Bebe’s claw marks on it.

Bebe’s attacks were very precise. He wasn’t trying to kill Rudi at all.

“You ask me why?” Bebe’s beady little black eyes were blazing with unquenchable flames of rage. “Do you still remember, thirty years ago, you and Dillon fighting over that Shadowmouse of the ninth rank?”

Rudi immediately thought back to that past event. This entire time, he had been quite unhappy about it. Dillon had actually killed that Shadowmouse of the ninth rank. Rudi instantly understood…that this Saint-level magical beast had surely come to avenge that Shadowmouse.

“The one who killed the Shadowmouse wasn’t me, it was Dillon.” Rudi hurriedly said. He suddenly felt that he had a chance at life.

In front of Bebe, Rudi didn’t have any ability to fight back at all. As soon as Bebe saw Rudi begin to chant a magic spell or the nearby elemental essence begin to move, Bebe would immediately give him a slap with the paw on the mouth. And given Bebe’s power, even if he was able to successfully launch a Saint-level spell, it might still be unable to harm Bebe.

“Indeed, you didn’t personally kill them, but if it wasn’t for you, my mother probably would’ve been able to flee early on!”

“Ah!” Rudi let out a miserable cry. His right arm had suddenly been sliced off by those sharp claws, and the severed arm fell down from the skies.

“If it wasn’t for you, would Dillon have directly killed my mother?”

Yet another claw and yet another miserable cry. Rudi’s left arm fell down from the skies as well. The mighty, dignified Grand Magus Saint, Rudi, had been devastated to such a degree. Rudi was totally bereft. In front of Bebe, he had no ability to resist at all.

“High Priest, why haven’t you come?!” Rudi was growing more and more worried. In the minds of the Saints of the Yulan Empire, the High Priest was their leader, and here, it was much like how…the Saints of Radiant Church simply didn’t dare to cause trouble within the boundaries of the O’Brien Empire.

The other Saints also didn’t dare to cause trouble in the Yulan Empire, much less in a township so near the imperial capital.

“You…prepare to die.” Bebe said calmly.

“The High Priest will definitely avenge me!!!” Rudi shouted fiercely, and then a final claw welcomed him. This claw ripped him apart from the skull, creating a massive hole in it. Rudi’s eyes immediately grew dim, and his armless corpse fell down from the skies. “Bang!” It smashed into the rubble, kicking up a cloud of dust.

In mid-air, Bebe stared down below.

The civilians down below didn’t dare to make a sound. The current Bebe had none of his usual adorableness or playfulness. All he had was the ferocious cruelty inherent to all magical beasts.

“Swish!” A black blur slashed across the skies, and Bebe disappeared into the air.

The corpse of Rudi, lying in the rubble, had its eyes bulging in disbelief. Even as he died, he had hoped the High Priest would avenge him…but alas, the High Priest wouldn’t appear for his sake. Unless, of course, the High Priest was tired of living.

There wasn’t much of a difference. The Saint-level expert, Dillon, was like an infant in front of Bebe, easily trampled. Dillon hadn’t been able to take more than three attacks from the early-stage Saint Olivier. In front of the current Bebe, he couldn’t even block a single attack.

In mid-air.

Four Bebes surrounded him in four sides, transforming into four black blurs. They were playing a game of kickball, literally kicking the body of the Saint-level expert, Dillon, all over the place.

“Bang!” Dillon felt his waist receive another vicious kick, and then with a ‘crunch’, his bones shattered. Dillon’s body was then kicked towards another direction. Dillon immediately activated the battle-qi in his body, wanting to fly and flee.

But yet another black blur appeared in front of him. Yet another!

“Ah!” A piece of bloody flesh was ripped out of him, and Dillon’s body couldn’t help but spasm in pain. He ground his teeth, then flew to another direction.

However, yet another black blur was there to welcome him!

No matter how wildly Dillon tried to flee, given Bebe’s terrifying speed and his Shadowshape Doppelganger Technique, Dillon wasn’t able to escape.

Shadowshape Doppelganger Technique! Four doppelgangers were trampling him in four different directions.

“Why?! I’ve never offended Linley!” Dillon howled with grief and anger. Seeing the black-furred Saint-level rat, Dillon knew that the magical beast in front of him was Linley’s magical beast. In the past, Bebe had defeated even Haydson.

After twelve years of growth, how could the current Bebe be someone Dillon could deal with?

“My Boss?” Bebe’s eyes flashed with the fires of rage. “Who told you to go to the Mountain Range of Magical Beasts to kill my parents?!”

“Kill your parents?” Dillon was confused. “Have I ever killed a powerful rat-type magical beast?”

But then with another claw, Dillon was kicked flying yet again. He felt his head grow dizzy. At Bebe’s speed, he was able to kick Dillon dozens of times in a single second. By now, Dillon had been kicked over a thousand times.

Fortunately, he was at the Saint-rank, and thus could preserve his life.

“Who told you to kill my mother in front of Rudi!” With a ‘bang’ sound, yet another claw struck him.

“In front of Rudi? Ah! Thirty years ago…the Mountain Range of Magical Beasts…”

Dillon understood everything now. He remembered what happened that year at the Mountain Range of Magical Beasts. So this mysterious rat was the child of those two rats of the ninth rank.”

“Swish!” Yet another claw to his face.

Right now, Dillon’s clothes were splattered with blood and sticking to his body. He didn’t have a single place of undamaged flesh. After having been kicked around thousands of times, and with a piece of flesh being taken away with each kick, Dillon currently…

Had half of his bones broken and visible to plain sight, along with his bright red flesh and blood. It was a terrifying sight.

Even one of his eyes had been torn out.

“Kill me!” “Kill me!” “Kill me!” Dillon was no longer even recognizably human. He could only mumble words out, without being able to resist at all. But Bebe’s eyes didn’t have an ounce of pity in them. Suddenly, the four Bebes became one!

Bebe appeared in the air directly above Dillon.

“Whap!” A final, vicious claw delivered to Dillon’s skull. Dillon’s skull immediately shattered apart, and Dillon’s no longer recognizable corpse plummeted to the ground, his shattered bones flying everywhere upon impact.

After that final claw, Bebe just stood there in mid-air, stunned.

Bebe had always been carefree and had followed and played around with Linley since he was young. He liked to eat and drink…but in his heart, he had always wondered about his parentage. Where I am from? Who is my father? Who is my mother?

The higher class a magical beast was, the more intelligent it was.

And Bebe was a Godeater Rat. His emotional intelligence was even greater than that of humans.

Thirty three years.

In the end, he found his parents had both died!

“Father. Mother. Bebe misses you both. Bebe doesn’t know what it means to have a father, or what it feels like to have a mother.” Bebe’s eyes became covered with a misty layer. “Today, Bebe has avenged you both.”

Two teardrops fell down from Bebe’s face.

“Bebe’s name was chosen by the Boss. Although Bebe doesn’t have you, Bebe still has the Boss. The Boss’s embrace is very comfortable. Maybe…your embrace would have been like being by the Boss’s side.” Bebe was quiet for a long time, there in mid-air.

The thirty plus years he had spent by Linley’s side had resulted in Bebe, without question, considering Linley as his one and only family member.

Beirut…although Bebe addressed him as Grandpa Beirut, they had only met not too long ago.

“Whoosh.” A wind arose. Bebe’s body disappeared into the eastern horizon.

Deep in the magicite mines. In front of the dimensional door.

“Swiiiiish.” Bebe easily passed through that door. The attacks of the dimensional door chopped on Bebe’s body like sabres, but they didn’t even break a single strand of Bebe’s fur.

Linley, who had been seated in quiet meditation, opened his eyes. Before he even said a word, Bebe immediately threw himself into Linley’s embrace. “Boss.” Bebe’s eyes were already red.

Linley hugged Bebe. “Bebe, it’s fine. Don’t be too heartbroken.”

“Okay.” Bebe nodded.

Both Linley and Bebe had lost their parents. They had grown up together, and the two were as close as true brothers to each other. Linley was like the big brother, while Bebe was the little brother.

Yulan calendar, year 10024, March 2nd. Outside the imperial capital of the O’Brien Empire. War God Mountain.

Yet another ray of light streaked across the skies and entered War God Mountain. A normally quiet courtyard within War God Mountain already had an entire group of people assembled. This courtyard was the place where the War God usually stayed when he wasn’t behind closed doors engaging in training. In the empty space within the quiet courtyard, there were around ten people, all of whom were chatting idly amongst each other.

All of these people were exceedingly powerful. Not one of them was weaker than Haydson had been.

“Bowditch [Bao’di’qi] has come as well.” Someone spoke out.

A skinny man with long silver hair flew down from the skies. Bowditch was yet another person who, in the past, had shaken the Yulan continent with his fame. But that was three thousand years ago. These days, Bowditch lived a quiet life of training in the Arctic Icecaps.

“Bowditch, you came as well!” One of the ten people in the empty space, a grim-looking man with white-flecked hair spoke.

“Olivier, if you can come, why can’t I?” Bowditch’s voice was very cold as well. His gaze was focused on Olivier. Currently, Olivier only had a single sword on his back, a translucent sword that emanated extreme cold.

During his bitter training in the Arctic Icecaps, Olivier had fought several times against Bowditch as well. The first time they had fought, Olivier had lost. But eight years later, when they fought again, the two were on par.

Soon, one expert after another arrived.

“Kefande, you arrived very late, this time.” Seeing the experts continue to arrive, many people immediately laughed and greeted them.

These experts, having trained in seclusion for thousands of years, almost all knew each other. They all belonged to the War God’s side. By nightfall, twenty of them had arrived. According to their plans, there should be a total of twenty two.

Ten from the War God’s College. Twelve other experts.

“Our Senior Apprentice has arrived.” Someone suddenly said. A thin man with short jade hair whose back was ramrod-straight and who had a sharp aura walked out. His blue robes fluttered in the wind. He was the Senior Apprentice of the War God’s College…Fain!

Five Prime Saints. Fain was one of them!

As Fain arrived, a group of people immediately went to welcome him. All of them greeted him very familiarly. The only one Fain hadn’t met before was Olivier.

“Hrm? Where’s Linley?” Fain spoke. “He isn’t here yet?”

Twenty one of them had arrived. The only one missing was Linley!

    1. When Beirut came to existence was he a Godeater Rat?
      Was Dylin like wise?
      Or they were some other species and worked hard and reached deity and changed race due to deity ing?

    1. Yeah. I think, there are many instances where Dylin should be Dillon (based on book 1 and previous chapter), unless it was really Dylin who killed Bebe’s mother.

  1. Thanks for the chapter Ren and Donators!

    Also during the fight with Dillon:

    Right now, Rudi’s clothes were splattered with blood and sticking to his body. He didn’t have a single place of undamaged flesh. After having been kicked around thousands of times, and with a piece of flesh being taken away with each kick, Rudi currently…

    Rudi should be replaced with Dillon’s name lol

    1. I wonder if he’ll also take control of the rats in the mountain range of magical beasts?
      Maybe some of them knew his parents well?
      I guess the other diety controls the whole range?

  2. “High Priest, why haven’t you come?!” Rudi was growing more and more worried. In the minds of the Saints of the Yulan continent, the High Priest was their leader, and here, it was much like how…the Saints of Radiant Church simply didn’t dare to cause trouble within the boundaries of the O’Brien Empire.

    Should it be Yulan Empire? Yulan continent implies everyone, including the Radiant Church

        1. Its may partly refer to High Priest being the 1st Human Deity in known history so the leader/pioneer of all experts. And how people wont mess with War God who is 2nd on his empire. It should be harder in Yulan Empire the territory of Priest. Its more of implied rather than truth.

  3. Thanks for the chapter. I was curious how that was going to work. I was worried Bebe would take 2-3 chapters finding them and such. And then I thought he’d just kill them fast. This was definitely more amusing.

    “Those eighteen successive claws was the technique”
    Pretty sure it should be “The eighteen successive claws” since it sounds like it’s considered one technique. But there are probably other ways to fix it. All I know is that the grammar is definitely wrong in that line.

    Someone already pointed out the Rudi/Dillon thing.

  4. Now Linley would be like, “Sorry fellows, you guys will have to go alone. I’ve already reached the Deity rank in an year”.
    Won’t that be fun?
    Might even come true with that special training chamber.

    1. That would be hilarious. But it’s be disappointing to not see what’s up in this Necropolis of the Gods.
      Although, I bet that their reactions will still be shock once they see how much he’s improved.

      1. no no it should go like this;

        Linley – ah I’ve arrived late sorry for making you wait
        Fain – oh no it shouldn’t be a problem as long as you came! Linley you rather… strange
        War God – …..
        Linley – oh it must be because i’ve come to the deity stage
        Oliver – (says to himself)no shit that’s why I felt hard to breath around him
        Fain – hmmm… (frowns) I find that quiet hard to.. (war god interferes)
        War God – linley it’s quite admirable that you’ve accomplish such a feat in such short amount of time! now can I ask why have you come here?
        Fain and Oliver – deity….! at such age….! what a freak!!! (says to themselves)
        Linley – what do you mean? (smiling calmly) are you asking why I came to acquire divine spark?
        War God – yes
        Linley – it’s for my wife
        Fain,Oliver and others – ….. (dumbstruck!!!!)

        he he so then linley goes to the huge grocery store named Necropolis of Gods to buy delia a divine spark

        hahahaha as if! right????

        1. Tbh i would really like to see Linley getting an divine spark for his wife aka Delia. They love each other and im pretty sure he would to have her by his side.

    2. naah probably he’ll arrive just in time before they depart to the necropolis.
      “Heya all, oh hey Olivier… long time no see… taste this… XXX compressed layers wave!!”
      and Olivier dies 😛

  5. thy ren and donors 😀

    btw.: did i read this part wrong or should it be dillon- “Right now, Rudi’s clothes were splattered with blood and sticking to his body. He didn’t have a single place of undamaged flesh. After having been kicked around thousands of times, and with a piece of flesh being taken away with each kick, Rudi currently…”-?

  6. thanx for the chapter!!! there are two (or more) places where Dillon is referred as Dylion, you might want to correct them!!

    hmmm… linley’s being late!! ha ha classic!! big shot all way comes in the end!!

    1. my apocalypse has arrived!!!!! I won’t be able to read anything for next to days!! good luck me, I hope I’ll survive! * almost crying* ren sama, please leave fine 6 chapters for me to rivive!!!

      PS. I hope anything major happens in the meantime like linley becoming a deity!!!

      1. oh! bebe’s almost too cute *exited* I love my little bebe!!! XD XD XD
        revenge is really a refreshing thing! (but bebe killed them too quickly,especially rudi)
        I wonder how linley will make his grand entrance!! *sigh* I have to wait for two days to know (i’ll probably die) *sigh*

          1. one with a vengeful heart may know the pain of unjust with in others!!! takes one to know one,you know!
            I have list of things to do to those guys before killing them ( aside from just kicking and scratching ) but I have a feeling that you won’t like them! he he

            PS. If you do just say so! I’ll soon make a list *innocent smile*

          2. Well, I know that whether it’s the work of fictions or claims on the Internet, they are not to be taken seriously, but I’ll still say this.
            Hurting back those who offended you in the past doesn’t make the pain from back then disappear. On the other hand, it’s enough to act inhumanely once, and your mentality changes. If that doesn’t matter, it’s good to remember that what goes around, comes around, so jumping headfirst into a circle of hatred guarantee more pain in the future. When you imagine whatever you do to others being done to yourself later on, it’s hard to be all fired up, isn’t it?
            It’s really disturbing to see IET constantly advertising the most savage forms of taking revenge, and the readers taking delight in reading about it.

          3. ……………. oh you took me seriously! funny I thought no one takes me seriously!!
            long lecture about revenge, hmmmm….. I think you should read naruto.(it’s a manga though)
            don’t blame the author, he’s just entertaining us!!!! I still like the idea of revenge! he he

          4. Naruto? Thanks, but no, thanks.

            And I’m well aware you weren’t serious, but it’s also the fact that most of the readers appear to be entertained by all the gory scenes of slaughtering people, where MC’s side are an attorney, a judge, and an executor all in one. That’s not really something that should be enjoyable.

          5. What’s wrong with Bebe being inhumane? He is a magical beast, so why should he have human morals and refrain from getting revenge? And it is a world where might makes right, finding happiness where you can and gaining strength to protect it.

          6. to deriel – then Tokyo Ghoul!! he he (it’s also a manga) one of my favourites!

            to wuxiawolf – you said it!!!

          7. @Wuxiawolf2
            Linley’s acting in the same way most of the time. Besides, unlike regular magical beasts that have instinctive hatred toward humans, Bebe appears comfortable with them and somewhat human himself due to his bond with Linley, save for the times his beast nature gives IET a chance to throw some more gore into the story. I don’t really see in what way it was necessary to spend a good chunk of the chapter on depicting that one-sided slaughter.

            @Yuzu
            From what I’ve seen of the anime, the violence and gore there are hardly portrayed in a favorable light.

          8. Tokyo ghoul is medicore compared to Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni or Code Geass, or classic like Death Note… ‘Another’ is also better.

          9. are you kidding! Code Geass! Death Note! they’re the most hated list! what’s that shit about killing MC in the end!! argh…even remembering them makes me angry (specially Code Geass)

  7. Right now, Rudi’s clothes were splattered with blood and sticking to his body. He didn’t have a single place of undamaged flesh. After having been kicked around thousands of times, and with a piece of flesh being taken away with each kick, Rudi currently…

    It should be Dillon instead of Rudi.

    Thx ren

    1. nah! Clayde got his fine share too! Linley rip his arms, ears apart and cracked his bones, scratched him with dragon claws……. ooh almost gorged out his eye balls too!!! about Julin, I don’t remember much! something like he exploded or something….hmmm! anyway I think it’s Clayde’s brother who got off easy.

      1. Julin got his body slowly and painfully crushed by Linley’s tail. Linley crushed it to the point where his bones were crushed and he was starting to spit out his organs before smashing him into a wall. Did I mention Linley did it extremely slowly?

        1. oh yeah I forgot the tail! he he he
          but personally I think gorging out and ripping apart is better than crushing!!! as long as it’s not brain or spinal cord or heart, it won’t be instant! mostly death will be from blood loss and pain will be extream!

          so julin is still better than clayde ( even though his death is not from blood loss )

  8. Thanks Ren and Donators 🙂
    Hmm it’s time for Ni Yang Realm Necropolis of the Gods saga to start….

    Ren, don’t check your email so you won’t notice flood of donations and can relax for a week 😛
    I want to see Yuzu and the others dies from withdrawal XD

  9. Ren and all the donors thx for the chapter.

    i m not getting emails anymore when a new chapter is posted.does anyone know why. before i was getting 2 or 3 email about the same chapter but now i m not getting even 1.

      1. No… just no… i can already see Cesars death flag… The only good at about Barker is his monstrous strenght and defense, everything else is meh. If a deity can get killed in there then Barker would just be fooder. Since Cesar is dotting on the UD brothers im sure he would die for them, or maybe not?

  10. I want to thank Ren for this chaper and his superb, beast like, god like etc etc translate rate.
    Ofc i would like to give my thanks to generous donors as well! Will make sure to donate some soon as well~
