Chapter 287: That’s my prey, you little punk (3)


The ground cracked open and numerous soldiers of the Afterlife appeared.

And then…

“Who is going to take care of who?”

He had a vicious smile on his face as the Army of the Afterlife attacked the enemies.

Booboboboooooooooom!

“Ahhhhh!”

The terrorists tried to escape but Anubis’s Army of the Dead was too much for them.

“Fuck! Don’t be afraid! Kill all who oppose us!”

“There are only six of them!”

The terrorists started attacking back. There were thousands of them.

“Sweep them away with quantity!”

They fired rifles, threw Molotov cocktails, and did everything they could to attack. There were even artifacts that made people fall asleep or get sick.

But Ju-Heon’s team didn’t seem to care at all.

Forget caring, they…

“Hmph, do they think we're useless?”

“They need to be at the Captain's level for us to be afraid.”

They used their artifacts to defend against attacks coming from all sides.

They then urgently turned toward Ju-Heon.

"Captain! Leave them to us and go! Don't waste your strength here and … Huh? Captain?!”

Julian gasped after looking at Ju-Heon.

It couldn't be helped, since……

“Buuuurp, I ate too much.”

Julian grabbed the back of his head after seeing Ju-Heon in a bit of pain.

‘He ate some artifacts already?!’

“Wow, hey! Stop eating random stuff!”

Ju-Heon ignored him and walked toward the entrance of the art gallery.

The enemies became anxious and shouted.

“He’s trying to go inside!”

"Contact the General! Tell him to hurry up and remove his abilities!”

“It’s fine! They said this bastard won't destroy things like this!”

But at that moment…

Bang!

“!”

Ju-Heon destroyed a wall of the art gallery and nonchalantly walked in.

He then started to frown.

He could smell an artifact as well as a disgusting scent as soon as he walked in.

‘The smell of blood?’

But at that moment…

“Captain-nim, this……!”

Seol-A, who had followed him inside, pointed at something.

“!”

It was a hand.

It was a very familiar hand.


“This makes no sense!”

"What do you mean he killed all of our restorers?!”

The people who were working with Chairman Kwon and the Monarchs of Pandora were throwing a fit.

That was to be expected. All of their official restorers at the gallery had been murdered.

More importantly, the culprit was a US general!

That bastard had taken their money and then stabbed them in the back!

“What the hell is he doing to his fellow Pandora allies?!”

“His evil god artifact is Hitler’s artifact. No wonder he’s so shitty… Are you sure he hasn’t gone crazy?”

“What does the US president have to say about this?”

The Pandora employees responded.

“It seems as if the US has betrayed Pandora.”

“?!”

“They ran off with over half of the high-grade artifact users associated with Pandora.”

“……!”

Pandora’s Monarchs were shocked at this revelation.

‘Over half of the high-grade artifact users?!’

That was enough to conquer a country or two.

Of course, Pandora had been suppressing people from doing that, but… If they betrayed Pandora and went to the US……

‘Is the US planning on using them to declare Supremacy?’

That crazy old fart who was the US president was someone who would do something like that.

But there were two people in the room who were smiling in secret. They were Chairman Kwon and Kwon Hyuk Soo.

‘It's going according to plan.’

The admin they had sent to the exhibition was Hitler.

Kwon Hyuk Soo had fought against the Monarch of Evangelism in the Middle East before and that was when he had discovered Colonel Matthew. After realizing that Matthew was the Monarch of Evangelism's spy, Kwon Hyuk Soo had stealthily made a suggestion to Chairman Kwon.

‘Let’s join hands with Hitler.’

It was obvious that Hitler would have quite the synergy effect if he got Goebbels's artifact and other Nazi artifacts.

Furthermore, the art gallery where Yoo Jaeha was having his exhibition was where the third change was to happen.

‘Seo Ju-Heon, die by Hitler's hands.’

His anger was obviously directed at Ju-Heon.

‘That bastard will really die this time.’


It was a hand.

It was a very familiar hand.

“Captain-nim……this…”

Seol-A picked up the cut off left hand and the team members following behind her stiffened up.

“That hand… No way!”

At first glance, it would be difficult to tell who’s hand it was.

However, the artifact ring on the finger……

"This is definitely Jaeha’s……”

“No, that’s not possible!”

Julian turned to see that Ju-Heon was frowning.

But Ju-Heon was just finding the situation to be odd.

‘Even though we call him a pushover, he's not really a pushover.’

He wouldn't be defeated so easily like this. A message appeared as if to explain what had happened.

[Your artifacts’ abilities are disappearing because of an aura of deletion.]

[Your artifacts’ abilities are disappearing because of an aura of deletion.]

Ju-Heon looked at his hand.

He could see the Crow’s aura that had been coming out slowly disappearing.

‘Is that why it told me not to come in here? Who could be doing this?’

As he had that thought…

“If you're looking for the owner of that hand, you don’t need to worry.”

He heard an unfamiliar voice. Ju-Heon turned around to see the Maitreya, his look-alike.

The Maitreya had a cheeky smirk on his face.

“We cut that bastard’s hand off but he's not dead…… ugh!”

He groaned in pain.

Something flew up in the air before falling to the ground.

Plop.

What fell down was a pair of hands.

They were the triumphantly smack-talking Gung Ye's hands.

Gung Ye's face turned pale.

"Ah, aaaaah!”

He fell to the ground in pain after losing both hands in an instant.

However, Ju-Heon was just viciously glaring at him after chopping off his hands.

“Did you do that to him?”

Xiang Yu's sword was giving off a murderous aura in Ju-Heon's hand.

Gung Ye swore with bloodshot eyes.

“Y, you bastard, how dare you take my hands…… ugh!”

Ju-Heon kicked him this time.

Pow!

Gung Ye was rolling on the ground after being kicked by Ju-Heon. Ju-Heon then stepped on Gung Ye's head and smirked.

"Why don't you change that face of yours first? It's annoying to see a shitty guy like you with my face.”

“Uggggggh!”

Ju-Heon stomped on the face and Gung Ye's face turned into someone else's face.

He was actually Tao, the Monarch of Popularity who had suddenly disappeared in the past! This was the guy who had tried to use his fans to get rid of Ju-Heon.

“You bastard……!”

“Oh, it’s my downgraded version. This is great. You’ll pay the price for messing with my team member.”

“Uggggggh!”

Gung Ye screamed as Ju-Heon released his aura. It was at that moment.

“How about you stop there, Seo Ju-Heon.”

Hitler appeared in front of them.

The SSS-Grade artifact that was creating this tomb reacted strongly once Ju-Heon and Hitler looked at each other.

It was as if it had found its master.


“Damn it, I just need to go outside! As long as I go back out, my hands……!”

Yoo Jaeha was running like hell.

It seemed impossible to run like this with his hands cut off, but he was drawing out every ounce of strength he had to do so.

"Ah, stop, stop chasing me!”

He couldn't help it. He was being chased by a scary woman. She might eat him up if he stopped for even a moment.

“Get your ass over here!”

That woman was Goebbels. Yoo Jaeha swore as it was clear she was trying to kill him.

“Ow! Fuck!”

This Goebbels seemed to be aiming for the former Monarch of Gossip's position now that he was dead.

‘I guess she has a good Fit with Goebbels's artifact?’

Of course, she was not using Goebbels’s artifact right now and was using an evil god artifact. She seemed to be using an evil Nazi artifact instead of an Heirloom right now but she was skilled enough to take the Monarch of Instigation spot in the future.

He could understand why she was trying to abduct him to restore Goebbels's artifact that Ju-Heon had destroyed.

As he had that thought…

Bang!

“Aaaaaah!”

Another woman jumped down from the direction Jaeha was running.

It was Jack the Ripper this time.

She was charging at him as if she wanted to kill him too.

Jaeha gasped and foamed at the mouth.

‘First Jack the Ripper and now Goebbels too!’

“How come I only get these crazy girls chasing me?! Come on!”

He felt wronged.

"All the pretty good girls go to the Captain! Why?!”

Yoo Jaeha suddenly stopped and shouted to Nina.

“Fine, you want to kill me right?! I’ll just die!”

“!”

The knife-wielding Nina flinched.

“But that woman is going to kill me at this rate. Then you will lose me.”

“…….”

“You know what I mean, right?”

Yoo Jaeha smiled and Nina’s knife changed trajectory.

“!”

Jack the Ripper started to chase after Goebbels instead.

“Ahhhhhhhh!”

Nina seemed to want to kill Jaeha without anyone hindering her.

Goebbels glared at Jaeha as Jack the Ripper was chasing her now.

‘This damn rat-like bastard!’

She used Goebbels’ artifact to get rid of Nina.

Boom!

This was just a copy made by Louie so it wasn't as good as the real one and was a consumable artifact, but it was still very strong.

It was a brainwashing artifact to instigate the benighted masses, so Nina disappeared as if she had been bewitched by something.

There was a cool down period before she could use Goebbels’s artifact again because of Nina, but it didn’t matter.

Jaeha seemed to be running for his life after seeing how dangerous Goebbels’s artifact could be, but what could he really do?

‘His Fit should have fallen the moment he lost both hands and his artistic talents took a hit. I don’t even need to use Goebbels's artifact.’

“I'm not scared of you when you can't even use da Vinci's artifact…… huh?!”

"We got him now.”

Gobbels couldn’t help but be shocked. The Yoo Jaeha in front of her had a functioning hand!

Both of his hands should be cut off but one of them was back!

“I can deal with someone like you with just my left hand.”

Yoo Jaeha activated da Vinci's artifact.

Something shocking started to happen.

“Ahhhhhhhh!”

Pillars shot up from all around them. Jaeha activated other artifacts as well.

[Michelangelo's Graver (S-Grade:Legendary Hero Grade - Possession Artifact)]

[Rafael’s Pencil (S-Grade:Legendary Hero Grade - Possession Artifact)]

They were unexpectedly the remaining two of the three major Renaissance artists’ artifacts. They were artifacts that the other artists at the exhibition had on them.

Someone had placed the dead Julien’s Michelangelo artifact in his bag while Rafael's artifact had shown up in front of him after the first day of the exhibition.

It wanted to change masters or something like that.

Anyway, the Monarch of Pushoverness had powered up after collecting the set of the 3 Renaissance Art Masters’ artifacts!

Pillars also fell from the sky and the ground roared as the tiles flipped over.

The range was pretty small; it was about the size of a studio. This was a new area created with the Masters’ artifacts.

The thing that he had drawn inside da Vinci's notebook had become real. His other artifacts helped with that as well.

This… was no ordinary room.

“W, what the hell is this?!”

There was a whip and chains… There were iron bars on the ceiling and floor, some Middle Ages torture devices… This was clearly a torture chamber.

The floor was also covered in fire and mines!

It looked as if taking a single wrong step could send someone to the afterlife in this terrible room.

There were some muscular men in the next room reaching their hands out as well!

[Hey little boy, we’ll pamper you.]

[Come on over.]

The cuffed Goebbels couldn’t help but become anxious.

‘What kind of space did this son of a bitch create?!’

The person who created the room was grumbling.

“Ah, I created this torture chamber for that bastard Ilya but who knew it would be used like this?”

“!”

She frowned after seeing Jaeha being so calm.

She could tell that she had not seen wrong.

‘His hand really is there!’
