Destroying My Own Novel – Chapter 79 Bahasa Indonesia

“Mykel? Aren’t you supposed to go for the joint team? Edith is waiting for you in the living room,” Lyneth asked as she sat on the bed next to Mykel who was still asleep.

“Hmm… what time is it?” Mykel replied weakly as he tried to open his eyes.

“It’s already 10, Mykel. Did you train hard last night as well?” Lyneth asked as she gently stroked Mykel’s hair. “Come on, they’re already waiting for you at the Lucifer tower,” she continued as she put on lipstick.

Mykel sat up as he took a deep breath and looked at the sunlight from the balcony that blinded him. “Weren’t you supposed to be working? It’s rare to see you still here at this hour,” he asked with his right eye still closed.

“I want to pay a visit to my father’s grave, it’s been a while,” Lyneth answered as she looked at Mykel with a sour smile.

“Right, I will go there as well once I’m done with the joint team,” Mykel said as he looked at Lyneth and even though he didn’t mean it.

“Really? Then I will be waiting for you so we can go there together,” Lyneth replied with a big smile on her face.

Mykel immediately regretted it. “Sounds good,” he answered as he nodded his head and smiled at her.

“Alright, no more chit-chat, go take a shower and get prepared already,” Lyneth said as she gently pushed Mykel off the bed.

Mykel went to District 7 where the Lucifer tower with Edith and a few Awakeners from the Guild Association. They weren’t important characters but they were the best that the Guild Association had and they were still better than the Awakeners from the Fraternity.

Kastor looked at the gate and saw dozens of cars entering the tower area. They saw Mykel come out from the car and were a bit surprised that Gunnar and the others weren’t with him.

“Mykel, it’s been a while,” Kastor said as he approached Mykel.

Mykel hummed while he was looking at Asmond who looked a bit disappointed that Jeanne wasn’t with Mykel. Asmond looked a bit down and Mykel was already happy when he saw Asmond making that kind of expression.

Mykel approached him and grabbed something from behind his blaze then threw it at Asmond. “That’s another scroll for you, Asmond. I heard you did great in Astaroth tower from Jeanne,” he said with a smile on his face.

“Wh-what?! I’m just doing my best, Mykel. You don’t have to give me anything!” Asmond replied with a surprised expression.

“Just take it, you’re the only one who can change the world. Everyone here is thinking the same thing, so just use it and protect these people,” Mykel said as he patted Asmond’s shoulder.

“Thank you! I will use it right away!” Asmond replied and wreathed in a smile.

The other Awakeners started to feel jealous of the special treatment he got even though they had been following Kastor and Caesar the longest. Mykel smirked as he walked past them since it was his plan to stir problems from inside.

“Thank you for letting us enter this tower, Mykel,” Caesar said with Enma standing next to him.

“No need, we never restrict anyone from entering our towers,” Mykel answered as he walked past Caesar.

“Alright, let’s enter the tower and clear the tenth floor!” Caesar said as he raised his sword and everyone cheered in excitement.

They entered the tower and Mykel was talking with Edith about her vision. He was still a bit worried about the Revelation but Edith said that she didn’t get any vision since then.

“Mykel,” Asmond called Mykel from behind. Mykel just looked at him and raised his eyebrows. “Can I ask you something?” he asked nervously.

“Sure, what’s wrong?” Mykel replied.

“I have been clearing towers and I used to get a lot of Arcana Coins from the Constellations, but for the past few weeks, I didn’t get any at all. Do you think you know what happened? There used to be a lot of Constellation that offered me to be their recipient, but now all of them are gone,” Asmond replied with sadness in his voice.

“What makes you think it’s weird? I barely got anything as well, and I also haven’t gotten a Benefactor, so that should be normal, right?” Mykel asked with his eyebrows raised.

“Is that so? I thought it was a bit strange because the others have gotten themselves a Benefactor and it makes me a bit worried,” Asmond said as he nervously rubbed his sword handle. “Well, there’s one Goddess who was oftentimes watching me but she didn’t give me anything and just watched me,” he continued.

Mykel stopped walking and looked at Asmond with curiosity. “Isn’t that good? Which Goddess that have been watching you?” he asked.

“Goddess of All,” Asmond answered and that was enough to make Mykel’s heart skip a beat.

Mykel couldn’t stop staring at Asmond with his heart pounding really fast. He was so confused and curious about why Mara was on Asmond’s side, it made him anxious and not to mention the vision that Edith saw.

“Mykel?” Asmond asked as he tilted his head and looked at Mykel with confusion.

Mykel snapped back to reality and he shook his head. “Nothing, I’m just thinking what kind of Goddess who has such a title like that,” he answered.

“Yeah,” Asmond said while he nodded his head but his expression didn’t change even though he was being watched by the highest being like Mara.

“Is something else bothering you, Asmond?” Mykel asked.

Asmond hummed in agreement as he nodded his head. “It’s about Jeanne,” he answered.

“Jeanne? What about her? Did something happen to the both of you?” Mykel looked at Asmond with curiosity.

“Yeah, we hang out after we cleared the tenth floor in Astaroth tower, but she was acting strange. It felt like she didn’t want to spend her time with me at all, she treated me so coldly,” Asmond answered while he looked at Mykel with a pitiful face.

“Did you ask her why?” Mykel was trying so hard not to smile and tried to look concerned at Asmond.

“I did, I asked her what happened but she didn’t tell me anything. I was a bit annoyed and said something bad to her that she didn’t care about me anymore,” Asmond explained. “She was furious when I said that and she replied that it wasn’t about that, but because of something else. Then I made another mistake again and asked her if she was dating someone. She said yes, and it was so painful to hear that because I just realized that I love her,” he continued with his long face.

“She’s dating someone? She never told me that she’s seeing someone,” Mykel asked with his eyebrows raised.

“What? You didn’t know? I thought that you’re dating her,” Asmond replied while looking at Mykel with a surprised expression.

Mykel leaned his head back and furrowed his eyebrows while staring at Asmond. “Why would I date her if I know that you have feelings for her?” Mykel said and then he looked at Edith who walked next to him. Edith only closed her eyes as if she didn’t hear anything and didn’t care about it.

“I have doubts and now that I hear that answer from you, I feel a bit relieved because I knew you wouldn’t do anything like that since I heard you’re already with Miss Lyneth,” Asmond replied and looked at Mykel with a bitter smile.

“Of course! Why would I do that? I do care about her but I never make a move on her at all because I respect your relationship with her,” Mykel answered and he wasn’t lying because he never made a move on Jeanne, it was Jeanne who made a move on him.

“Thank you but I think it’s too late now because she’s with someone else and I can’t stop thinking about it,” Asmond said as he pressed his right hand on his chest. “Thinking that she’s in love with someone else is really hurt,” he continued as he clenched his hands.

Mykel put his hand on Asmond’s shoulder and shook it gently. “There are a lot of women out there that might be able to replace her, just go and find one since you’re famous now and women are begging to be with you,” he said.

“But she’s precious to me and I don’t think anyone could replace her. If only I can do something to take her back, I will do whatever it takes so I can be with her again,” Asmond answered.

“Let’s talk about it later, okay? Right now we need to focus on clearing the tenth floor and everyone is depending on you,” Mykel said as he patted Asmond’s shoulder.

“Yeah, you’re right, I can’t be thinking about anything else right now,” Asmond said as he looked forward while Mykel smiled behind Asmond’s back.
