Destroying My Own Novel – Chapter 217 Bahasa Indonesia

There was no day or night in the Empyrean World, or at least how it looked because of the dark clouds that covered the whole sky. The temperature was always hot, so it was hard to tell if it was night or day, and impossible to tell the time that had passed.

Thankfully, Mykel could tell how many days had passed because of his [Admin] skill. He could tell when he ran out of usage of modifying his Arcana Coins, and it had been five days since the moment he set foot in the Empyrean World.

Thanks to the battle with Lucifer and Luciel, Mykel ranked up a lot of his skills and increased his Rank as well. He was unkillable because he spent hundreds of millions of Arcana Coins to recover from all the wounds. Even Lucifer was quite surprised that Mykel had that huge amount of Arcana Coins to keep him alive.

“Sooner or later, you will run out of Arcana Coins. You’re fighting against time and now you’re slowly running out of time,” Lucifer said as he swung his sword to clean the sword from Mykel’s blood.

“Don’t be stupid,” Mykel said as he looked at his pack of cigarettes that was crumpled. “You can tell I’m not taking this seriously,” Mykel grabbed the only cigarette that was still in good condition and then threw the pack to the ground.

Lucifer watched Mykel light his cigarette without any worries or fear on his face.

“I could kill you both so easily if I want to, but the time isn’t now and I’m not planning on doing that as well,” Mykel explained as he puffed the smoke. “As I said, I’m not a liar and you should know that by now,” Mykel said with a cigarette hanging on his lips.

Luciel took a glance at Lucifer, and he looked like he was having a thought in his head. She didn’t like it because she knew they both could kill Mykel so easily if they kept trying.

“Don’t be so reckless, Luciel,” Mykel said with a smile on his face. “All this time, I can just go back to my world since Lucifer can’t prevent me from leaving unlike Mara, but I decided to stay and there’s a reason why,” Mykel explained as he puffed the smoke.

Luciel was quite surprised when Mykel could read what was on her mind. She couldn’t get rid of the image of Lucifer’s face on Mykel’s face. She didn’t like that at all.

“You’re still insisting on the truce talk,” Lucifer said as he stared at Mykel. “I can’t still find a reason why I should listen to that,”

“You have been living above the others for so long that you don’t know what it feels like to look up since you have been looking down almost for your entire life,” Mykel replied as he burned the cigarette into ashes.

“I know that you don’t like bullshit and stuff, so I will go right through it,” Mykel said as he walked toward Lucifer. “You’re thinking why should you accept the truce? The answer is simple because I need you and you’re going to need me,” Mykel explained.

“Just think about it for a second. What do you gain if you’re killing me or if I’m killing you right now? Sure, either one of us will get rid of the threat, but you don’t look at the downside of that action,” Mykel said as he stood in front of Lucifer. “Don’t you realize if one of us died now, Mara is the one who will be the happiest because one of her two biggest threats disappear?”

Lucifer squinted his eyes and realized what Mykel said was true.

“You understand what I’m saying, but of course, you might think that everything should be fine if you kill me now because you have always been fine even before I appeared,” Mykel said with his hands in his pockets. “But again, I told you that I’m not taking this fight seriously, because if I did…” Mykel paused and immediately activated [Judgement].

“You both will have no power but to bow down on your knees in front of my presence,” Mykel continued as he stared at both Lucifer and Luciel who fell on their knees as they tried to fight the immense amount of pressure on their shoulders.

Mykel walked toward Luciel and gently grabbed her chin with his left hand. He slowly and gently lifted her head up to look at him. She was shocked and scared of him. It reminded her of when Lucifer was showing his wrath to his people, and now she was in the same situation as them.

“You’re not an angel or a demon, or even a Goddess. What a poor being that can’t spread her own wings at will,” Mykel said with a smile on his face. “You can’t become a perfect being if your father is only doing it half-heartedly,”

“Remember what I said earlier in the Heptagon, Lucifer? I said you shouldn’t regret it if I took your daughter for myself. Now, look at how powerless you are and how I can easily take her away from you,” Mykel smirked as he stared at Lucifer from the corner of his eyes.

Luciel was glaring intensely at Mykel, but then Mykel smiled gently at her as he removed his hand from her. “But I won’t do that, because it’s better if we both have a friendly friendship,” Mykel said as he walked back and deactivated [Judgement].

Lucifer slowly got to his feet, his head facing down as he seethed with rage. He was furious, but he was trying to hold it back because he knew that making a mistake could have dire consequences.

“Let’s have a truce, shall we? Mind your own business and I will mind my own business,” Mykel asked with his eyebrows raised.

Lucifer glared at Mykel without saying a single word.

“I will take that as a yes,” Mykel smirked. “Well then, thank you for inviting me to your world and for the warm welcome. We will see each other again very soon,” Mykel said, and then teleported back to Earth.

“Don’t take it to the heart. Let’s work together to kill Mara, and I’m not trying to deceive you, because you’re a part of me,” Mykel’s voice could be heard inside Lucifer’s head, and it surprised him to the core.

“Father?” Luciel asked as she stared at Lucifer who looked shocked.

“I’m fine,” Lucifer said as he looked around and saw the mess they made from fighting Mykel. “Everything will be fine,” Lucifer continued as he walked into the ruined palace.

As soon as Lucifer entered the palace, he saw a notification that a presence had breached his world. He scoffed as he looked into the dark clouds that were suddenly swallowed by the pitch black clouds.

“Look who decided to show up,” Lucifer said as he glared at the sky. “There’s nothing to watch here,” Lucifer continued as he sat down on his throne and ignored Mara’s presence.

It didn’t take a while until Mara left after she looked at the mess in the Empyrean World. Lucifer watched Luciel sit on her seat while she stared at her sword. He thought about what Mykel said back there when he mentioned him doing it half-heartedly.

“Bring all your sisters here,” Lucifer said. “Also summon all the Demon Kings and wait for me in Gehenna,” Lucifer continued as he rested his cheek on his left fist.

Luciel stared at Lucifer for a moment, and then she nodded her head and left.

(Back on Earth)

Mykel came back in the living room with ripped trousers and a shirt on his body. The floor he was standing on suddenly cracked, the glass walls shattered, and all the furniture around him melted because his body temperature was so hot after he visited the Empyrean World that he produced heat that was enough to melt anything around him.

Mykel immediately covered himself with cold water magic and steam was covering the whole floor of the apartment.

Mykel sat down on the sofa with the steam surrounding him while he was staring at his right palm and squeezing it. “Such a shame that he didn’t use any of his skills, I could get a use of those skills, but it appears he knew about me having the skill to copy a skill,” Mykel said as he leaned his head on the sofa.

“There will always be next time,” Mykel said as he closed his eyes and then fell asleep on the sofa immediately.
