Destroying My Own Novel – Chapter 288: Younger generation. Bahasa Indonesia

289 Chapter 288: Younger generation.

Mykel looked at Zeus who was still groaning in pain and saw the lightning bolt on the ground. He then grabbed the lightning bolt as Zeus watched his powerful scepter being snatched away right in front of his eyes.

“You should have accepted my offer,” Mykel said as he looked at the trident and the lightning bolt in his hands. “Now, you’re going to taste your own medicine,” Mykel turned around and pointed the lightning bolt toward the sky.

Mykel cast [Lightning Nimbus] since the skill came from the scepter and then targeted Zeus. He then deactivated [Judgement], and everyone started to gasp for air as Zeus got electrocuted by the lightning bolts.

The first thing they did was to lift their heads and see Poseidon and Zeus’ conditions. They were covering their mouths with their eyes wide open.

Themis watched the cruelty of Mykel and decided to walk down the stairs.

“You have gone too far,” Themis said as she stared at Mykel.

Mykel turned around and raised his eyebrow as he stared back at Themis. “Come closer, and say that again in front of my face,” Mykel replied without showing any expression with a flat tone voice.

Themis immediately stopped walking and froze still as she stared at Mykel with fear written on her face.

“They will be fine, they’re Gods, and they will recover eventually,” Mykel said as he walked toward Hera.

Mykel offered the lightning bolt to Hera, and Hera looked at it with a confused look. He nodded his head, and then Hera took the scepter from his hand.

“No matter how you hate it here, you still want to be here because this is your home. Now that those two can’t do anything, I want you to be the one in charge here and make it a home for everyone,” Mykel said as he looked Hera in the eye. “If those two or any Gods are trying to hurt you, I will be there,”

Themis listened to Mykel’s words and started to understand why Mykel did this. Not only her, but all the Olympian Gods were listening to him and understood his intentions.

Mykel looked at Ares and then pointed the trident at him. Ares’ body was covered with water, and slowly all the wounds were being healed. Ares then opened his eyes as he groaned and tried to stand up.

Ares didn’t see what had happened to Poseidon and Ares because he was unconscious. He was speechless, but then the trident was pointing right in front of his face.

“Mykel? You did that?” Ares asked as he lifted his head to look at Mykel’s face.

“Yes, and why are you so surprised about it?” Mykel replied, and then spun the trident, and pointed the back of the trident at Ares. “Here, from now on, you will be the God of War and the God of the Sea,” Mykel said as he wiggled the trident.

Ares looked so confused because there were so many things to process. Hera suddenly grabbed the trident and then switched it with the scepter.

“I think you’re more fit to use this rather than the trident, Ares,” Hera said as she offered the scepter. “Help me rebuild our world as peaceful as the one in the north where we don’t need to use violence to establish and maintain a stable status quo under your father and his brothers,” Hera continued with a smile.

Ares looked at the scepter, and then looked at Mykel and Hera back and forth.

“I promised you, didn’t I? I will give you his lightning bolt. Now take it, and be someone who’s not like him. Lead the Gods with her,” Mykel said with his arms crossed.

Ares hesitated at first, but then he took the scepter with his right hand. His whole right arm got a tingling feeling, and the veins under his skin turned light blue. He felt a tremendous amount of power that ran through his veins.

“Can I ask you something, Mykel,” Ares said as he stood up with Hera’s help.

Mykel nodded his head.

“I remember you didn’t make Thor your underlings. I want the same thing,” Ares said. “I don’t want to be your tool,” Ares explained.

Mykel raised his eyebrows, and then he started chuckling softly.

“When did I ever use you as a tool? But sure, if that’s what you want,” Mykel replied as he nodded with understanding. “Although, there’s still something that I need from you,” Mykel said.

Ares gulped and already got nervous.

“Remember what my goal is? I want you to help me when the time comes,” Mykel said as he stared Ares in the eye with a serious expression.

Mykel was talking about the empty seat of the Judgment Arcana. He needed the votes from all the Major Arcanas, or at least more than half to choose him.

“Yes, I remember, and I will do exactly what you want,” Ares nodded his head with understanding. “Then, does that mean I’m free?” Ares asked.

Mykel smiled and raised his eyebrow. “When did I ever force you to join me? You were there because of your own will. I just persuaded and offered you a good deal, and you just took it,” Mykel answered as he walked backward.

Mykel turned around and then looked at all the Olympian Gods in the hall. He then gifted each one of them ten million [Arcana Coins] except Hermes, Zeus, and Poseidon, they got nothing.

“Let’s just say that’s for an apology for coming in and making a mess,” Mykel said as he looked at Themis. “You’re free to join us and visit Niflheim if you want. We have good wines, fruits, and music,” Mykel continued with a smile, and then he tilted his head as he stared at the notification in front of him.

“I will be waiting,” Mykel said as she looked at Themis, and then he disappeared.

Hera put her right hand behind Ares’ back, and then she looked at all the Olympian Gods.

“It’s just my selfish wish, but I hope with this change, we can unite and thrive for something greater,” Hera said. “This might be our only chance, and Ares would be the right one to lead us,”

“What about you?” Themis asked.

“I will guide Ares from behind the curtain, I will leave the future to the younger generation,” Hera answered.

Everyone looked perplexed by Hera’s answer. Even Ares was so confused.

“It’s time for Ares, Athena, Artemis, Hermes, Apollo, Dionysus, and Persephone to be the ones in charge,” Hera explained as she looked at them. “Of course, we the older Gods will help them, but we aren’t going to get involved directly. You can say that we will be their guidance,”

“If that’s what you want, we need to discuss this matter further,” Themis said.

“Yes, that’s what I’m planning to do,” Hera replied as she nodded her head in agreement.

(In the Dimiourgia)

Mykel stood right in front of a big mountain with waterfalls running down into the river. The mountain had a face, and hair made of the waterfalls with a slim body sitting and hugging her own right leg.

“Is there a reason why you want to see me, Goddess Gaia?” Mykel asked as he looked up at the beautiful face on the mountain with glowing green eyes.

Gaia slowly closed her eyes, and then the birds started to fly around above the river. The water started to rise and made a whirlpool in front of him. The leaves of the trees got blown away by the chill wind and started to get sucked into the whirlpool.

A woman with light green hair with misty gray skin appeared from behind the water in a see-through white dress that barely covered anything on her body. She slowly opened her eyes and stared at Mykel with her bright green eyes.

“I want to see you in person, Mykel Alester, the Mortal God, the Rule-breaker, the Elude of Fate, the Killer of God, the Master of Demons,” Gaia said with a quiet and soothing voice as a breathe of air.

“Who made those titles?” Mykel asked with a gentle smile and eyebrows raised.

“I did,” Gaia replied and gave a smile back to Mykel. “But I didn’t bring you here to hear all of those titles. I’m inviting you to have a drink and for a small talk. So, would you accept my invitation?” Gaia asked.

“Of course,” Mykel answered as he nodded his head.
