28-Founder's answer

'How long have you been crying? Get up, Sasha.

 As I said the words, she slowly turned her tearful, swollen red eyes to me.

'I'm not ready to give up,'

Can you make me disappear instead of Misha?

In a can-do, can't-do, can you? <"Can we do it or not? The only reason you have to trigger Misha's rejection is because you're immature.

 Then Misha gave me an appealing look.

'No, no,'

Don't worry. I'm not going to do that.

 This time Sasha said.

'Please! Anosk! Make me disappear! I've lived long enough! I'll give the rest of my life to Misha.

I'm the one who wasn't there in the first place. Sasha didn't deserve this.

 Sasha and Misha appeal to me.
 We should cover for each other and disappear, they say.

 Oh dear, how perfectly healthy.
 But unfortunately, their arguments are not my style.

'Come to think of it, there was this question on the aptitude test.

 Reflecting on the content of the entrance exam, I said.

'Suppose there was a daughter who was powerful but lacked the aptitude of a demon king, and a son who was not powerful but had the aptitude of a demon king. One day, they are both cursed by a god and are about to die. There is one chalice to break the curse. Which one should be saved? Describe the thoughts of the founder at this time.

 Turning to them, I asked.

'What's the right answer?'

The aptitude.

 It was Misha who answered.


"No matter how powerful he is, an unfit demon lord will not reincarnate as a demon race.

 I see. It's a typical way of thinking in this day and age.
 In this day and age of pedigree and aptitude, it's probably the right thing to do.

It's a mistake.

 Misha looks at me intently.

'Reincarnate to the one with power?'

 If one chooses the former, one would think that the one with the power is the Demon King.

That's not right either.

 Misha blinked her eyes as if she didn't understand.

'In the first place, who is this guy who asks which one should be saved? When did the Founder say that only one of us can save them? God's curse? Why would I bow to a god?

 I turned to Sasha and Misha and said, matter-of-factly.

'The correct answer is, make two chalices and save them both.

 I guess he saw my point. Without effort, but Sasha certainly stood up.

'I'll help you both.'

"...but how...? I don't need to think about it to know that it's impossible. Our bodies and souls are one in nature. We can't keep it split in two forever. Even if you prepare a vessel for Misha, your soul can't live for long with only half of it. Even if you reincarnate them, it's the same.

 Impossible, Sasha reasoned.
 But still she stood up. If she knew it was impossible, why did she stand up?

 You are hoping for the best. You're betting on what little hope you have.
 Just like in the intergroup test, I'm going to overturn this nonsense.

 I'm not going to fail to live up to that expectation.

This is all because you are one in the first place.

So that's why it's impossible to...?

No. It's a simple solution. Then we can pretend there were two to begin with.

 Sasha's eyes widen and she expresses her surprise.

'How could you do that?'

"Change the past.

 Sasha was immensely disappointed. He didn't think that the past was something that could be changed, did he?
 But true magic lightly transcends even time.

 At this level, as expected of me, I can't say it's easy, either.

"For about fifteen years or so, I can go back in time with .

 Then Misha said, this time, "If you change the past, I will not be born.

'If you change the past, I will not be born.

That's right. <Misha was born for the first time through the magic of Dino Dixess. If we were twins from the start, Misha here and now would be gone. Having a little sister doesn't make her Misha...

 Even if we changed the past, this time Misha would not be born.
 It's literally impossible.

 But a demon king can destroy even the impossible.

The two souls, or the root, which are divided, are destined to return to the one. Then, wouldn't it be nice to have another source?

What do you mean?

'We only need one more Sasha. If we split the other Sasha with
 Half stunned, they are listening to me.

'Sasha fuses with Sasha, and Misha with Misha. It's a simple addition. Then the two of you will be born with one perfect root, one perfect source.

'I don't understand......... That might be true if I were the other one, but where would I be? Is there such a thing as magic in creating the exact same person?

'I'm sorry, but no amount of magic can create the same person. There is only one source of us in this world.

So, I guess that's it, then?

'No matter. I can't create the same person, but I can go to the other me.


I told you we could go back in time. I'm going to fuse you in the past with you in the present.

 It's a good idea to be able to have a good time with your friends.
 It's a very good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.
 Even in the age of mythology, it's like how many demon clans were able to change the past a few seconds ago.

''In other words, I'll send the two roots here and now to fifteen years ago. That's where your newborn roots are. The two roots of the present and the past were originally one. Misha and Sasha are the same person. Of course, Misha in the past and Misha in the present are the same person. And the two roots are trying to return to one. Then the root of Misha in the past and the root of Misha in the present can be merged into one. Same with Sasha.

...What happens...?

Let's face it, 15 years ago, you were born as twins.

 Past alteration is tricky because there are many laws that come into play.
 If someone notices that the twins were born, a contradiction in time is created, and altering the past doesn't work.
 So they do so in such a way that no one will notice, not even the world will realize it.

The past will be altered, but you and Ibis will mistakenly believe that Misha was born in a
 With a look of disbelief on her face, Sasha said.

''........Is it really possible to do such a thing.......?

 I nodded clearly.

'The royals can do origin magic, right?'

I could use it, but...

 I looked at Misha and she nodded.

''You guys are the ones who will use the Time Manipulation (Levide). I can't go back in time and it won't do you any good. Your roots go back in the past, and we'll pretend Misha and Sasha were originally born.

''... wait, I know the basics of origin magic, but such a great magic, not very great magic...''

That's why I used the Demon King's Army (Guys).

 The three of us are connected to the source of the three of us by the magical ray of the Demon King's Army (Guys). I can channel my magic power into them and help them practice their magic through the magic wire.

I'm going to take care of the magic and magic exercising. I'm sure you'll be able to see the origins of the problem with your magical eye. You have two origins to target.

 I held up two fingers.

'One is your own origins. "One is your own origins, look back to when you were in your mother's tummy. It determines how far back in time the levers go.

 If we can peek into the origins of those days precisely, we can go back fifteen years.

''One more thing. This is important, but I'll put the origin of the origin of the power we borrow to establish magic as the origin of the Demon King.

 Origin magic uses the law that the older something is, the more magical power it has.
 It's not that simple, if you want to borrow power from me two thousand years ago, why don't you borrow power from me now?
 It's not just a matter of time before you'll be able to find a way to get a job. It's because two thousand years have strengthened the magic power and made the magic stronger.

 Well, there's no point in explaining troublesome magic concepts.
 It's just a matter of time before I have to say something.

''Okay? I am the originator. Your belief in a tyrannical demon king is a fake. You must believe that I am the ancestor and use the origin magic! If you don't, the levy can't succeed.

 Misha and Sasha looked at each other.
 Then they nodded at each other as if they were ready.

'I believe you.'

 Misha said.

'In any case, I have no choice but to rely on you. I would believe in the devil if there was even the slightest chance of that happening.

 Yes, Sasha said.

"Don't forget that word.

 I hold out my hand and draw a three-dimensional magic circle of in the room.
 With Sasha and Misha at the center, a magic formula that transcends time is assembled in the blink of an eye.
 In order to exercise the magic, I concentrate my consciousness.

 That was the time.

 With a thunderous sound, the ceiling collapses.

 A pile of crumbling debris followed gravity and descended on this place.
 And then there was a shadow that fell faster than it was, falling in a straight line.

 The moment my eyes caught the skeleton's face, he was already only inches away.
 In his hand, he held a jet-black magic sword that looked as if it had condensed the night.

 It's probably a gem from the age of mythology.
 The evil demonic sword broke through my anti-magic effortlessly, breaking through my skin, ripping through my flesh, and indeed piercing my heart.

 Fresh blood splattered.


 Sasha lets out a scream.

'Farewell. O mighty, nameless demon race.'

 One of the Seven Demon Imperial Elders, Aivis Necron let out a low voice and pushed his demon sword into my chest as a stop.


I know what I'm doing!

 Misha used the magic of
"Don't die!

 In addition to the falling debris, the objects, the objects around them, shattered in unison with the sound.

'Be quiet,'

 Ivis waved one hand in the air. <The magic eye of the doomed eye was sealed and the steel prison was broken. <The magic of the captive magic chain is activated and the magic chain binds Sasha and Misha together.

"You are precious cargo. You are our precious cargo. You're almost there. <The Dino Dixie reincarnation is complete and the Ancestors will be reborn here.

 Ivis looked up to the heavens and stared at the falling moonlight.

'Hmm. I see. <So the Separation Fusion Reincarnation (Dino Dixess) is a magic to create a vessel to reincarnate an ancestor?

 As if astonished, Ivis looked at me with the magic sword still stuck in his heart.

 It's true, the recovery magic hasn't worked as if it had been working since a while ago.
 But that's all it is.

"Did you think that a mere crushing of my heart would kill me?

 I rake Ivis' face.
 I dare to call him in at this close range and take the blow.

'I knew you'd be here by now, Ivis Necron. I spent a thousand years studying fusion magic on my own offspring. I don't think I'd be dumb enough to let it be ruined.

 Draw a magic circle inside his body.
 The demons of the mythical age can't pass half-hearted magic.

"I'm sorry, but I don't have time to play around with you. I'm going to ask you to leave early.

 The condensed magic power is slammed into the inside of Ivis at once.

The Gio-Glaze.

 Instantly, a jet black sun appeared inside of Ivis, tearing the guy's anti-magic in multiple layers to shreds and causing his body to collapse from the inside out.
 Black light began to leak out of Ivis's body and popped loudly.

''Gu.........gahhh.......what.......is this magic power...... Stupid.........not only does it have the knowledge of magic, but it's also.......stronger than this me.......?

 The blown up Ivis is desperately trying to resist the , which is raging inside his body.

Hmm. As expected of a mythical demon tribe, they are quite stubborn.

 I pull the demon sword gadol from my own heart.

'You can't heal the wounds of this magic sword, can you?

 He aimed the magic sword gadol at Aivis and threw it at him.
 The jet-black sword stabbed into Ibis's skull as if it were being sucked in.

 I'm not going to be able to stop the momentum, his body floats in the air and he is crucified to the wall with the magic sword.


 So this is it.
 I'm not dead, but at least I won't be able to resist for a while.

 I used my anti-magic to cut the restraining spell chain that binds Sasha and Misha together.

"Are you okay?

 They nodded graciously.

 Hmm. Only fifteen seconds to midnight. That was plenty of time.
 But when it comes to altering the past, the real work begins now.

You're going to need to finish up. Trust me.

 He poured his magic power into the magic circle he had built and activated the origin magic
