“Hmm. You know better, right? By the way, sister.”
The two of us were bickering and suddenly Eundam called me.
“Jihan, in the past, you used to say that you would soon disappear from your physical form, but lately you’ve always looked like a person, right? “Has the materialization time increased significantly?”
I hesitated a little at the sudden question.
But I gathered my composure and answered as if nothing had happened.
“I absorbed it into the soul stone of Seo Ji-han, the magic stone of Ionickel that I received.”
Not long ago, Seo Ji-han received the magic stone of Ionickel the Devourer, which I received as a reward, and the restrictions on materialization were completely eliminated. Once
materialization, the cooldown period of 6 hours required to remain in the spirit form was eliminated.
Ionicel The enormous energy of the magic stone allowed him to materialize whenever he wanted, and in addition, it gave him enormous abilities. And in return, he
seems to have taken a little patience and morality.
As the time he can be active has increased, he can sneak out whenever he gets the chance. He wanted to go out and kill major figures around the world.
Not long ago, he said, ‘I’ll take care of something for a moment.’ He said.
If I hadn’t inadvertently asked, ‘Where are you going?’, politicians and major dungeon managers from all over the world would have been killed in droves.
Thinking about it again, I feel chills.
Don’t say it too casually.
“I’m sorry for making that decision on my own. But as soon as I saw the magic stone, all I could think of was Seo Ji-han…”
“No, sister, that’s not it. Since that item belongs to my sister anyway, it’s natural for her to use it however she wants, but she absorbed it? “Could you use that magic stone like that?”
“huh. Elfanis said before that magic stones are modified soul stones, right? “When Seo Ji-han absorbs and materializes the boss magic stone, he is actually only absorbing and using the energy portion of the transformed soul.”
“So that means the predator also had a soul?”
“No, that’s not it. Oh, of course there was, but I’m not sure about that. As for Ionickel’s magic stone… as you know, it has consumed a lot of souls and worlds. “Most of the energy he consumed was used for his own life, but it seems like a lot of it remained in his body.”
“The magic stone I received is a portion recovered by the system after that guy died. Should I call it residue? Still, it’s a great thing.”
“Isn’t it a waste? “I think it would have been great to make equipment items with that.”
In fact, this is what I kept hearing from Seo Ji-han.
He told me that it was okay that I no longer needed the magic stones, so I should go to Nafgis’s realm and make them into items.
However, when I learned through the records what happens to the soul stone that fails to absorb the magic stone, all I could think of was feeding it to Seo Ji-han.
“Soul stones are not items that last forever. It varies depending on the size of the power each person possesses, but they can only communicate with their soul bodies for as short as a year or as long as 10 years, after which they gradually disperse and disappear completely. The role of the magic stone is to replenish its strength so that it does not scatter.”
Eundami looked embarrassed as if this was an unexpected fact.
“You’re surprised, aren’t you? I was surprised when I first found out about this too. To think that Seo Ji-han might disappear one day without me knowing…”
“This kind of sister tried to start a business with a service that provides soul stone rooting for dying people, but it failed.”
It was so unexpected that I was speechless for a moment.
Before I could control my embarrassment, Eundami burst into laughter.
“Of course I’m joking! Look at my sister’s expression. Did you believe it? Wow I’m really going crazy. Sister, what location are you currently in and are you rooting for soul stones one by one? “You didn’t believe it, did you?”
“Hey, Eun-dam Yoo…”
Seo Ji-han called out to Eun-dam in a dark voice.
He looked very upset.
The bean sprouts he was holding in his hands looked like a sword from a martial arts expert.
If the situation arises, he could use the bean sprouts in his hands to kill Eun-dam. It looked like he was going to attack me. Oh, come to think
of it, with Seo Ji-han’s abilities, it might be possible to blow up bean sprouts and make a hole in the wall…
“He has a serious expression. Anyway, thanks to that magic stone, Jihan has become a perfect full-time housewife, right?”
“Anyway, you really know a lot.”
“I look at the records every day. “There are some things I don’t understand, but I was able to get a general idea of what happened because I was looking at the history of the system as a whole.”
“I see. “Then Jihan’s gaze hurts so much, so I’ll just leave.”
“Oh, you want to go?”
“yes. I’m not going very far, but I’ll come back later. And save some time for me.”
“I have to do the next special training as well.”
“What special training?”
Isn’t training all over? Since this meeting is over, I don’t think there’s any need to practice any more.
“If those people don’t listen after a week, shouldn’t we go harder? I will prepare a very good curriculum!
Ndam, who spoke cheerfully, lightly touched his forehead with his finger and said, ‘Adu!’ After saying hello, he opened the gate and left for the dungeon.
I was muttering vaguely, and Seo Ji-han chuckled.
“If you don’t like it, you can just refuse. Anyway, if you refuse, Yu Eun-dam won’t be able to force you.”
“But I’m saying it after thinking about it… And actually, the last training was quite helpful. I don’t like it, but I have to do it.”
“Yes. I don’t like it, but I have to do it. It’s only this time anyway. Haha, I’ll come back with a lot of curriculum in the evening, right? It’s special training again for a week.”
Seo Ji-han just laughed lightly again at my complaint,
“I’ll try my best to think of a good line, too.”
Isn’t it fun? Seo Ji-han, you’re having fun right now?
You’re pretending to be serious, but your face is smiling right now?
But contrary to our expectations, there was no need for a week of special training.
The signal for surrender came quite quickly.
The first surrender came two days later . The news came.
All American media outlets officially featured the US surrender.
And then the news of the surrender came one after another.
I was very surprised at the speed, which was much faster than I expected.
In the end, all the countries participating in the meeting declared surrender . It happened three days after the meeting.
And this event later came to be called ‘bloodless conquest in 72 hours.’
* * *
A few hours before the United States declared surrender.
Son Mo-a was seen near the conference hall building. In particular, the conference hall was completely sealed off with a tight barrier in place.
Everyone in the conference room could not hide their devastated faces. This
was because a fierce war of words and disagreements broke out immediately after Son Mo-ah left.
“This must be a bluff.” “There is no way we can maintain such a massive skill set.”
The Chinese representative pointed out, pretending to be somewhat rational, but there was an impatience that could not be hidden in his voice.
“Hunter Son Moa had already set up a barrier near the East Sea a long time ago and maintained it for several months. I don’t think it was just a bluff.”
The Chinese representative’s eyes widened fiercely.
He really didn’t like people who contradicted his thoughts.
Moreover, since it was the Korean representative who said that, the Chinese representative’s feelings were even worse.
“I also agree with what the Korean representative said . “I looked at Hunter Son Moa’s battle record in the data, and there was a time when he deployed a barrier to blockade the entire city of Seoul.”
Another representative chimed in and chimed in:
“But do you think humans can maintain this level of power for a year at most?”
“What do you think will happen if this situation continues for a year? We don’t need even a year. In just three months, most of our social systems will be paralyzed,” the European Union representative said, and America immediately snorted
“That’s right. And I’m worried about the next step if we don’t surrender here.”
Taking America’s side, the British representative said in a concerned voice,
“Sonmoa Hunter. Didn’t he blockade the entire Earth right then and there? Even if the blockade ability itself is a unique skill, its range is ridiculous. If what was used was an attack skill and not a barrier….” A terrible assumption
. The conference room fell silent.
“But can you ignore Korea’s position on the international stage and act arbitrarily like that?”
The American representative came forward without even hiding his intention to control Son Mo-ah through Korea.
“If you had thought about Korea’s position, you wouldn’t have blockaded it.”
The British representative glanced at the Korean representative, who had been silent the whole time, and quietly dismissed it.
“But you can’t surrender unconditionally!”
“Do you, the representative of the United States, really intend to go to war?”
“That’s not my decision! I have no authority. It is a matter for the home country to decide. Aren’t you the same? “I am simply here to attend the meeting as the head of the American Dungeon Control Center.”
That was a sharp point.
Although Son Moa spoke to them, they had no decision authority.
Other than just conveying what I just heard back to my home country.
“Even if there was a war, what on earth would happen? Son Moa’s base is a dungeon and we can’t even go in there. And they can come out whenever they want.”
Someone muttered gloomily.
Inwardly agreeing with those words, the British representative shivered with a chilling sensation.
If they do not realize the seriousness of this issue and decide to launch an all-out war…
However, contrary to concerns, the return from home was a quick surrender.
If Son Mo-a had blocked only some areas, the surrender would have been delayed.
However, the decision-makers also had to endure for three days, trapped in their own neighborhood or in the National Assembly.
Some of them were trapped in the wasteland with no food or water facilities.
There was also a lawmaker who was trapped in a barrier on the road between cities while on his way to work.
Although it was not Son Moa’s intention, they became very uncomfortable and their surrender was very rapid.
If only everyone other than them had become uncomfortable, there might not have been any surrender.
And Son Mo-ah, who heard the news of the surrender a week earlier than promised, came to the meeting again.
Dressed in the same black robe I saw before.
