Chapter 330: Final boss? (1)


[You trashy Seo Ju…ahhhh!]

Prometheus was almost dead. He wouldn’t be complaining if he was just being tortured.

[Hurry up and grind this bastard up.]
[Let’s grind him up and sell it as a liver recovery agent.]
[It is master’s orders.]

‘I fucking told you that’s not my ability!’

Prometheus screamed after feeling his body being twisted.

[Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!]

This must be what it feels like to get ground up in a millstone.

Indeed it was, since they were actually using a millstone to grind him up. Ju-Heon had thrown them a millstone artifact saying it would be useful for the torturing!

Boom boom boom boom!

[Hey! Do it properly! His finger is poking out!]
[Ah, sorry! I thought it was his you know what.]
[Are you crazy? It’s too small to be that even if it is him.]

‘These sons of bitches!’

Prometheus, no, the oak tree branch that was being ruthlessly ground up was swearing internally.

‘Seo Ju-Heon, you son of a bitch! I should have known how much of a fucker you were from the moment I saw you manhandling the artifacts!’

Unlike the others who pampered artifacts, Ju-Heon had no problem destroying them from the beginning.

That personality would not disappear. He even turned Zeus into a eunuch and turned him into a power plant.

But the scariest thing was that this was just the beginning.

Why?

‘Now I'm certain. That bastard is going to try to rule over all cultures.’

It was easy to tell what kind of bullshit Seo Ju-Heon was going to try to pull. Ruling over all cultures of artifacts would mean that he would be that much closer to being the Majesty.

‘I need to stop that no matter what.’

It was not just because he did not like Ju-Heon. The biggest reason was that Prometheus could not forget about Ju-Heon's gaze.

It was probably right before Ju-Heon left this area.

“Grind him up without holding back. Don’t let him die a peaceful death. These bastards are pieces of shit.’

‘What?’

‘Prometheus is famous as a symbol of pain and resistance. They even used him as a symbol during the Japanese Occupation of Korea. He was on the side of the humans who went against Zeus.’

‘Then?’

‘But I guess he’s had it too easy for a while. He forgot his identity and tried to kill humans from a high position as an executive.’

Ju-Heon actually seemed to like Prometheus quite a bit.
Ju-Heon’s eyes flashed.

‘Use this time to remember who it was that let you be born.’

Ju-Heon had been smiling. His eyes seemed to be saying the following.

‘You guys are tools born because of humans.’

How dare these shitty tools try to sit above the humans. This was the reason Prometheus was shaking in fear.

‘The moment that bastard becomes the Majesty is the moment the artifacts lose all human rights, no, artifact rights.’

It was obvious what would happen.
That was why he needed to stop this tyrant who was about to awaken as the Demon King.

That was probably the reason. Prometheus barely managed to send out a clone even as he was getting tortured. He had managed to get the message out.

Furthermore, he put the rest of his strength in the clone, hoping that it would help them.

‘I can at least stop Seo Ju-Heon now.’

He wasn’t planning on telling them to stupidly go up against Seo Ju-Heon without a plan. He had a more certain plan.

‘This is the only way to really get rid of him.’

Prometheus smiled while thinking about the future.


But it didn’t matter that he had been so confident. Prometheus’s message was being ruthlessly chewed up.

Why?

“Did Prometheus really send this kind of message?”

Inside the Pandora Executive Board’s Druid’s Clocktower. The humans who had received the message from Prometheus's clone were frowning.

Maybe that was to be expected.

[Seo Ju-Heon will continue to get stronger by raiding the treasures inside the prison.]
[But there is one way to stop this bastard.]
[Send the part of the Great Prison that is sticking out to the Imagery world. You can imprison Seo Ju-Heon and the Great Prison in there.]
[Humans are unable to cross over from the Imagery world.]
[I sent the rest of my power with this clone so that you can open the Imagery world. My subordinates should know how to open it.]

The people gathered at Pandora's Executive Board scoffed.

“This Imagery world……it's like an ocean where all of the artifacts were born?”
“Yes sir. As a Greek artifact, Prometheus called it the Chaos.”

Prometheus's eagle stealthily smiled as he listened to them.

‘As expected of Prometheus-nim! He truly is wise!’

There should be no better way to get rid of Seo Ju-Heon.

The Imagery world that was also known as Chaos… This was the ocean where the artifacts were born. In human terms, it was like space where stars were born. Well, space is full of dust and gas while the Imagery world was full of human memories and images.

Artifacts received life in that cradle before appearing in front of the humans.

‘Well, we will just be dissected if we go back there.’

The Great Prison and everything in it would be dissected if it was sent to the Imagery world. But there was a reason they had not done so until now.
It was dangerous. It was also beneficial to keep the artifacts inside the prison alive.

But it was nothing compared to Seo Ju-Heon becoming the Majesty.

‘It is a great plan. Humans are unable to cross over from the Imagery world.’

It would be similar to getting swept up in a black hole in space and becoming lost forever.

‘He’ll turn to dust and only his brain will float around in the water.’

It was a great plan to completely get rid of Seo Ju-Heon from this world. But the chief executives completely ignored such a great plan.
Why?

“It’s a waste to send the Great Prison there. All of those precious artifacts will get dissected.”

[?!]

“Seo Ju-Heon will get stronger with the treasures inside the prison. That means that the place is full of great artifacts!”

[W…….wait!]

“It’s better if we take those artifacts for ourselves.”

‘No, that’s not it! No!’

The eagle foamed at the mouth.

‘This is not the time for such bullshiiiiiiit!’

The chief executives continued chatting without caring about the fact that the eagle was sweating bullets.

“And Prometheus said he sent the last of his strength with the clone. Then there's no reason to rescue him now.”
“That’s right. It's a waste to use this to open something like the Imagery world. Let’s put it to better use.”

‘Noooooooooo! That's not what you should dooooo!’

The eagle was about to go crazy. These humans did not seem to understand the serious danger they were in.

‘Seo Ju-Heon even tamed Zeus!’

Well, it wasn’t really 'taming’ him but he did make it so that Zeus could not run amok. That bastard would do the same thing to absorb cultures one by one.

There were many artifacts that would allow him to do that in the Great Prison.

But what?!!!!!

‘Even if the Knights of the Round Table aren’t here!’

Different Pandora members chimed in.

“Ah! Why don’t we just completely undo the seal on the Great Prison? We can open it up and send our excavation teams in to find the Treasures.”
“That sounds great! We can't allow Seo Ju-Heon to be the only one to enter such a treasure trove.”
“Let’s bring it up to the Knights of the Round Table.”

‘This is driving me nuts!’

It wouldn’t be enough even if they shut the visible door up and threw it into outer space but they want to reveal all of the entrances?!

Are they fucking crazy?!

‘You shitheads! That’s wrooooooong! That would just make it easier for Seo Ju-Heon to go in and out! This is our golden opportunity! We won't ever have a chance like this to get rid of Seo Ju-Heon if we miss this chance!’

Unfortunately, the humans could not hear the eagle at all.

That wasn't all.

"Then when should we get started? Ah, should we split up Prometheus's power and use it for excavating?”
“Haha. That sounds great. Merlin, one of the Knights of the Round Table, did want to excavate the prison as well.
“Yes sir. I will deliver the message.”

Pandora’s lower-tier employees weren't planning on saying anything to go against the chief executives.

It didn't matter that the eagle was writing things telling them to stop!

[Humans, please stop them! Please! Just tell them that’s not it! Tell them not to waste the Supreme Leader’s power!]

The employees just ignored him.

‘I'd have to be a dumbass to do that. They’re the chief executives.’

‘Going against them just means that I'll be fired.’

They were smart and just walked out of the room.


Returning back to Ju-Heon’s group…

“It’s slowly starting to get worse.”

Ju-Heon's group was frowning while moving to a different section.

It truly felt different as they went deeper into the Great Prison.

‘The difficulty is going up drastically.’

They were hiding from the guards but the guards’ levels were going up and the number of dangerous traps were increasing.
It was becoming concerning even for Ju-Heon's greatest under heaven team of misfits. It was at that moment.

‘!’

Seol-A quickly motioned with her hand.

They jumped to the bottom of the cliff on reflex.

Booooooooom!

They then stabbed into the cliff with a weapon or used artifacts to dangle on the cliff.

Jaeha clutched his wildly beating heart as he started to speak.

They got the signal and jumped down, but……

“Huh, what the hell? There was nothing!”

Seol-A smacked him in the back of the head.

“Shh. Shut the hell up if you don’t know anything.”
“?!”

A moment later… They frowned while looking at a smog moving past the top of the cliff. They really didn’t like this smog that looked as if it was alive.

That was obvious.

“I knew it. It is the fog from that time isn't it?”
“That fog?”

Julian explained to Jaeha who had not been in the Great Prison in the past.

“It’s a fog of disappearance. You don’t know where you will end up if you get swept up in that fog. That’s how Ilya disappeared in the past.”
“Really?”

Ilya responded to him.

“It’s actually being broken down to your molecules. That’s how I ended up dying.”

Jaeha turned pale after hearing Ilya's comment.

“Holy shit, broken down into molecules……?!”
“Won’t you be okay even if you get broken down into molecules?”
“Oh. Sounds good. Put one of your arms in there.”
“Maybe it’ll transport you to a different area if you are still alive.”
“Hey! You guys!”

Ilya addressed Ju-Heon without caring about Jaeha.

“Will it be okay? It seems like it is starting to get more dangerous.”

Ju-Heon turned his head.

“Kongming and Seol-A. Can you feel the Crow's aura?”
“It’s not too far but still a while away.”
“Hmm, then should we head outside to reorganize?”

They were starting to run out of food as well since they sort of rushed in.

Chloe and Dan weren’t here either.

But at that moment…

Booboboboooooooooom!

“Captain-nim, the path!”

The tomb started to move on it's own.

And then…

[The Great Prison is starting to move.]
[The urgent changes have blocked the way out.]

Something must have happened outside the Great Prison.

It must have unexpectedly activated a trap.

‘What is going on?’

He had a bad feeling and urgently tried to go up but the cliff seemed to go on forever.

Booboboboooooooooom!

“Fuck!”

He tried to break through the cliff but it restored itself almost instantly.

“It's not working!”

And the only thing inside the cliff was that scary fog of disappearance.
Jaeha flinched as Ju-Heon looked back and forth between him and the fog.

“U, umm. Even I can’t go in there. That’s not the way out.”
“I know. Who said I was going to shove you in there?”
“You looked like you were thinking about it.”
“Okay then, go in.”
"Excuse me?!”
“It really might be a warp gate like Ilya said. Go, Monarch of Pushoverness. You are our only hope.”
“No wait, I don’t want to turn into molecules! Damn iiiiiiit!”

Jaeha was crying but did start to move toward it, probably because he still felt guilty about his actions in the past, but Ju-Heon smacked him in the back of the head.

“I'm joking, you little punk.”

Ju-Heon took out the Majesty's Key.

This was a key that should be able to open anything.

‘I don’t know if I can open traps with this too, but……’

As he was about to activate the key… He saw a light sparkling nearby. Ju-Heon’s eyes opened wide.

[You have discovered a Majesty’s Treasure.]
