Destroying My Own Novel – Chapter 121 Bahasa Indonesia

Manna sheathed her sword and looked at the empire that she loved had turned into a total mess. The beautiful rivers had dried, and the trees that covered the roads from the sun had dried out. There were no humans left in the capital city and she was the only Awakener left in her world.

“It’s over, the Veatika is now nothing but a history,” Manna said as she dropped her sword and looked at the bright sun on top of her head.

Mykel opened the chest and looked at the same reward as the other floors. Manna didn’t need all of them because she already have those two skills and she already had better material in her sword and armor. He thought of giving the scrolls and material to Euros and maybe Phirzia since he got another chest from clearing the Asmodeus tower.

“Are you going to leave?” Manna asked and looked at Mykel with a sad expression.

“Yes, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be coming back,” Mykel walked toward Manna. “There’s something that I would like you to do,” he put his hand on her shoulder.

Manna raised her eyebrows and stared at Mykel in the eye.

“Be the Empress of Veatika Empire,” Mykel stared back at Manna.

Manna scoffed. “An Empress? With no people to rule? What’s the point?” she shook her head and chuckled mockingly.

“Do you know what this is?” Mykel asked as he showed [Crystal of Souls] in his hand.

“No, what’s that?” Manna shook her head and stared at the crystal.

“This…” Mykel paused and then crushed the crystal. “Will free the souls and whoever those souls belong to, it will come back to life,” he continued as the strong winds blew his hair and covered his left eye.

The [Crystal of Souls] belonged to Hades or to be precise a crystal that Hades gave to Charon so he could bring the souls into the Underworld. The moment Mykel showed the crystal to Hera, she was so furious and now all the Olympian Gods and Goddesses were on their way to the Underworld to punish Hades for everything he did.

Both of them looked in the direction of the fierce winds went to and they could see the dead branches were shaken by the winds all over the city. They saw doors got blown by the wind and finally they heard rustling sounds all over the city.

“It seems the people are in need of a leader and we both know that you’re the only one left who has the capability of doing so,” Mykel looked at Manna with his hands in his pockets. “What do you think? Are you going to rebuild the empire with them or are you going to leave into the tower?” he asked.

Manna looked at people coming out of the buildings and houses, they looked around with confusion. She was confused that those people looked healthy even though the breakout happened three years ago.

“How could they still be alive after years of not eating anything?” Manna grabbed her sword and walked toward a woman who held her son.

“Who knows, only the one who did it knows how it works,” Mykel walked next to her.

“Commander Manna?!” The mother shouted and immediately lowered her head to show some respect, even her son did the same.

Because of the mother shouted Manna’s name, everyone turned their heads and searched for the source of the voice. Manna looked at hundreds of people came to the main road and they immediately ran toward her.

Everyone was calling Manna’s name and they all looked happy and desperate at the same time. They didn’t know that the world had been saved because they were begging her to protect them from the demons.

Manna calmed them down and explained everything that the world had been saved by her and Mykel. They all looked a bit confused at first but then they all wreathed in smiles since they believed her.

Mykel watched from the distance and kept observing her because he was a bit skeptical about himself that he really did brainwashed her. He needed to know how effective his method was so he decided to stay for a few days there to observe her because it would be a problem if she went back to be a fanatic.

Manna sighed as she approached Mykel. “I wonder why the demons didn’t eat their bodies,” she mumbled to herself.

“I’m still waiting for your answer, Manna,” Mykel said with a cigarette hanging on his lips.

Manna turned around and saw hundreds of knights were running around the city to check on everyone. “We have enough knights and Ordained thanks to you. Unfortunately, I can’t give you an answer to that yet because I need to think about it all night,” Manna answered as she looked at Mykel.

“Fine by me, you can take your time because I’m going to stay here for a few days because who knows what will happen if those fanatics decided to kill everyone,” Mykel exhaled deeply and looked at the city.

“You’re not planning on killing them, right?” Manna looked at Mykel with a bit of concerned.

“No, because with you around, I don’t think they dare to do anything since you’re still their Supreme Commander and your words are absolute,” Mykel answered and stared at Manna.

“I see, well then, you can use the palace to stay. I don’t think there will be any food left though, but at least the bed should be comfortable enough,” Manna said. “I will bring everyone into the city now and help rebuild the city,”

Manna left to the portal and went back to Eleventh floor on her own.

Mykel went to the palace where the Emperor ruled over the Veatika live. He was the only Emperor who had no descendants nor wives because he was still young. His father died after sacrificing himself to the God of Death because he was brainwashed by Manna and the others.

In the original story, the new Emperor was still alive and he was an incompetent person. Asmond had to come back over and over to help him ran the empire since Asmond and the others killed Manna and all the people from Veatika.

This time, the new Emperor was also still alive as well but it was a bit different because his soul was taken into the [Crystal of Souls]. Knowing that the Emperor was still alive, Mykel had to deal with it first while he had the opportunity.

Mykel entered the palace because it was unguarded and everyone was so busy to help those who were stuck inside the debris. He looked around the palace and checked the Emperor’s location, he found the Emperor was hiding in a secret room.

“Emperor Nabel?” Mykel called his name right in front of the hidden door so Nabel could hear his voice.

Footsteps could be heard from behind the wall, Mykel pretended to not hear them and kept calling his name. Nabel decided to come out and looked at Mykel weirdly because of his attire.

“Who are you? You’re not from our world?” A twenty year old man with yellow hair and blue eyes stared at Mykel behind a hidden door.

“Your majesty, I came in Supreme Commander Manna’s behalf. We have saved Veatika from the demon, your majesty,” Mykel answered and looked at Nabel’s shoes.

“Supreme Commander Manna is here?! Where is she?!” Nabel asked as he ran toward the window to look at the condition outside the palace. “Is it really over? The demons are now gone?”

“Yes your majesty, but there’s a slight problem,” Mykel answered as he stood behind Nabel.

“A problem? We can deal with that problem later because right now we have to celebrate our victory!” Nabel said with his eyes wide open in excitement.

“I don’t think we can ignore this problem your majesty,” Mykel said calmly.

Nabel clicked his tongue and turned around. “What kind of problem? Can you handle it?” he asked and stared at Mykel.

“Yes, that’s why I’m here, your majesty, because the problem is right in front of me,” Mykel answered.

Nabel looked at Mykel with confusion. “Wait, what do you mean by that?” he asked and started to show some fear on his face.

“I can’t let you to live because I have planned for Manna to be the Empress and the only ruler of Veatika,” Mykel answered and slowly raised his hand.

Mykel used [Telekinesis] on Nabel and twisted his body like a towel with his blood spurting out on the floor and walls. Mykel listened to every bone breaking and cracking then he crushed Nabel until nothing was left.

Mykel cleaned the mess using water magic then dried the water with fire magic. He then came out from the palace and he killed an Emperor as if nothing happened.

“Nobody seems to know that the Emperor is dead or alive, then let’s keep it that way,” Mykel said to himself and left the palace so casually.
