The Tutorial Is Too Hard - Chapter 357
Chapter 357 – God of the Sky (1)
It was an unexpected meeting.
I thought we could meet again someday, but I didn’t know it would be today.
[Yes, warrior. Go ahead.]
There were a lot of things I wanted to say.
But when I looked at him, I couldn’t say anything.
It was not because our relationship was shallow, but rather because it had a great meaning.
His original name was Aubutz.
An apostle of the God of the Sky.
When an emperor of a former human empire was drunk with arrogance, the God of the Sky sent him down to punish the emperor.
As a result, four generations of imperial emperors were killed and sealed under the imperial castle.
Until the empire summoned the warriors of the other world to defeat the demon king summoned by the demons.
It was a holy sword to combat the demon king, the goal of the tutorial stage, and at the same time, it was a sword to test the challenger’s mentality and willpower.
And it was a reward I received as a reward for clearing the 26th floor stage, and he was also a companion who traveled with me up to the 60th floor.
Although I did not actively use Ahbooboo as a weapon.
He was a friend who could always share opinions and exchanges. He has been of great significance to me.
Ahbooboo’s appearance was the same.
What I mean is.
It was exactly what I first saw on the 26th floor.
An excessively thin and long sword that clearly shows that it is a ceremonial sword.
Jewels with colorful decorations.
His handles are pure white, without a single blemish from the passage of time.
He was in his original form.
Although his appearance had changed as a result of the experiments conducted on the 60th floor, there was no trace of them at all.
So my question was right.
Is that Ahbooboo the Ahbooboo I know?
Most of the characters appearing on the stages were those who have already died in the past.
However, there are exceptions.
Like the godmother on the 19th floor.
The godmother is the past persona of God of Sacrifice, a god of the Hundred Gods Temple.
The godmother, in her past form, is trapped in the tutorial stage, but the original God of Sacrifice still exists outside the Tutorial.
If so, the apostle of the God of the Sky, Aubutz, may still remain somewhere.
Is that the Ahbooboo who was with me in the Tutorial?
Or maybe it’s Aubutz, the apostle of the God of the Sky outside the Tutorial.
[You came all the way here to see me. Did you miss me? You missed me, didn’t you? Right? Kyung~?]
Of course, if you listen to that insane aegyo, he’s the Ahbooboo I know.
Still, I couldn’t help but raise my doubts.
It was because Ahbooboo felt different from before.
Of course, it would be obvious as time has passed.
“Shut up, please.”
I couldn’t maintain a serious atmosphere.
Even if I heard that strange aegyo constantly, I couldn’t get used to it.
That unique low-pitched voice made his aegyo even more disgusting.
I felt annoyance and longing at the same time.
It was a strangely unpleasant experience.
[Thank you for coming to see me, but I’m in trouble now. I’m on duty.]
“As an apostle of the God of Heaven?”
[Yes, I am.]
The gods who belonged to the Hundred Gods Temple are bound by restrictions and cannot be free from responsibility.
Due to his nature, it was a particularly fatal restriction for the God of the Sky, who would have a vast amount of believers.
The apostles were the method of the gods of the Hundred Gods Temple to overcome such limitations.
The apostles who act on behalf of their will and abilities take care of their territory and believers.
This was also the ultimate goal for the Hundred Gods Temple: to train their challengers through tutorials.
When I was clearing the Tutorial stages, the God of the Sky made his son and his wife his apostles.
And he tried to interact directly with me through them.
Actually, we had a relationship that wasn’t too bad.
Until the God of Heaven recovered Ahbooboo.
[It’s been a long time since I’ve seen the giant friends over there.]
Ahbooboo said to the giants behind me.
However, the giants were confused.
“They can’t remember you.”
The time when the God of the Sky recovered Ahbooboo was in the early 60th floor.
It was before I found a way to stop the giants’ memories from resetting each time the tutorial stage was repeated.
[Ah, that’s right. I was there. We all did it.]
Everyone I met there.
Suddenly a question came up.
How did Ahbooboo feel when he climbed the stage with me and encountered them?
He sees those who remind him of his situation, who had been trapped without even realizing it a while ago.
I can not know.
I have never asked.
In Iddy’s case, she was desperate.
Although she tried not to express it.
She eventually couldn’t hide it completely.
Because she is no different from a buoy floating in the sea.
No, she probably is not as meaningful as a buoy.
That’s probably why.
That’s why she was obsessed with the narrow, dark tunnels on the 12th floor.
She said that she was so sad when the tunnels disappeared due to a fire.
She made her own meaning.
Giving up the remaining summoning opportunities.
In return, by presenting me an impossible goal.
What about Ahbooboo?
Could he have found his own meaning?
Ahbooboo was a sword that wasn’t corrupted.
He was the opposite of Seregia.
She always tried to wield herself as a sword.
She prefers to fly and fight on her own, rather than fight in my hand.
She was feeling bored and discomforted in her sword life.
She spoke like a person and acted like a person.
“Is the work worth doing?”
[Yes, look. Is it beautiful?]
Under my feet, and under the clouds, a wide continent could be seen.
As we were high up, I could see the cities sparsely.
It was not a civilization as advanced as Earth, but it looked quite busy.
And the overall quality of life and the level of satisfaction also seemed to be quite high.
It was not that there were no unfortunate people and poor people at all, but they were living without despair in their circumstances.
It was a healthy society.
[It’s a really cool place.]
I was able to understand the warm affection contained in the voice of Ahbooboo.
It was a voice that contained pride, a sense of accomplishment, and all kinds of positive emotions.
[Many worlds are managed, but there are few places better than this. It’s probably so throughout the entire universe.]
“What is the share of the believer?”
I was also in the position of running a church, so I was most curious about that.
[11% of the population belongs to the Church of the Sky.]
That’s not a lot.
11% of the planet’s total population.
Obviously not a small number, but it was unreasonable to call it a planetary religion.
Of course, even so, the God of the Sky will not give up.
[In that sense, I don’t want any uproar happening here.]
Ahbooboo said as if requesting me.
“Do you know why I came here?”
No, of course you do.
The clash between the Pantheon and me was a universal event that all the gods of this world would be watching.
If you are a god that is directly or indirectly related to me, you will be keen on your senses and gather information.
On the contrary, if you are a god who has nothing to do with it, you’re probably chewing popcorn.
Ahbooboo and the God of the Sky are very closely related to me.
Of course they would have been watching my steps.
They may also know that I am pursuing the lower-level gods who joined the gods of the Pantheon.
At least, they know for sure that I am in the process of colliding with the Pantheon.
Ahbooboo thinks that if I attack a god hiding on this planet, it will damage the surroundings, so he asked me to step down from here.
It wasn’t that I didn’t understand his position.
“If I can’t do that.”
[If that’s the case, well, I can’t help it. I have no choice but to do what I have to do.]
Then the conclusion would be simple.
The sky began to move.
The temple that was hidden from the empty sky was revealed.
An aerial temple of the God of the Sky floats outside the atmosphere.
Its appearance looked more like an artificial satellite than a general temple.
So what was the actual use?
“It’s a little disappointing that we had to fight as soon as we met again.”
[Really. Couldn’t warrior just give up?]
Unfortunately, surrender was impossible.
The same will be true of the God of the Sky and Ahbooboo.
He is unlike the gods that can pour out his own believers like expendable supplies as needed.
The God of the Sky is different.
The divinity of the God of the Sky is uniquely related with his relationships with others.
He may seem more authoritative and overbearing than anyone else, but on the contrary, he is more dependent on his followers than any other god.
Even in his own sanctuary.
Although he only occupies 11% of the planet.
He is a god who cannot go beyond the situation where his own believers are threatened by other gods.
The temple of the God of the Sky over there began to shine brightly.
[Be careful. The God of the Sky is a very powerful god.]
The quiet God of Hope whispered.
[When the God of Slowness attempted to unify the universe, the God of the Sky…….]
The words of the God of Hope who was trying to explain something were cut off.
I couldn’t feel the God of Hope.
The next moment, I was standing on my feet on the ground, not in the sky.
I tried calling Seregia, but there was no response.
The fact that she was disconnected from me proved the seriousness of the situation.
“Did Miss Seregia also come with you?”
“Oh, let me say hello.”
I thought that too, but Seregia refused to greet him.
Even by my standards, Seregia has a very cold personality.
“It’s a little disappointing.”
It would have been nice if she had a short greeting.
I don’t know why she hates him so much.
“It’s amazing, this one.”
The world was turned upside down.
As we were flying in the sky before, we now stood in a desolate wasteland.
Ahbooboo asked again.
When I looked up to the side where I heard the voice, there was Ahbooboo who looked nothing like what I had seen before.
Ahbooboo looked like a human, not an egotistical sword.
With a thick lined face.
A tall height.
Somehow I felt bad because he was uselessly handsome.
He appeared like a mid boss in a cartoon, but he looked like a character who finally became a companion of the main character.
I have traveled around the world and encountered all kinds of beings, but his unrealistically handsome appearance is rare.
It was unfamiliar.
“Are you confused? I’m Ahbooboo. Kyung~?”
Ahbooboo frowned in one eye.
Face-to-face and hearing that aegyo, the destructive power doubled.
I felt like I wanted to hit him as quickly as possible and very passionately.
“How do you feel? As a mortal, returning to a human body?”
It was weird.
The body of a mortal, not a god.
I thought it made sense in the past.
It feels like a part of the body that has been degenerated and disappeared has been created.
I couldn’t feel my divine power or even my divinity.
Even the power of the God of the Sky was not felt.
The most basic fact that can be inferred is that there is no divine power in this wasteland.
“It’s the technique we were experimenting with. Right?”
We tried several things to find a way to restrain divine power to counter the gods.
As a result, it was possible to complete Seregia’s ability to block divine power.
But that was the limit.
“How is this possible?”
“It was completed by the God of the Sky. When you look down from high above, everything looks alike. Distance also means loss of personality.”
It was an interesting point of view.
But this was an unfinished technique.
It was certainly surprising that my power had been blown away, but likewise the power of the God of the Sky has disappeared.
The biggest reason we studied the blocking of divine power on the 60th floor was my existence.
In those days, I was confident that if my divine power had vanished, I would not lose against any being.
That’s why it was the technique I studied.
If the God of the Sky wanted to use this technique, he should have hid other devices that would overpower the opponent in the midst of suppressing divine power.
“Why don’t you have me instead?”
I did not understand the meaning for a while.
“Warrior, if you don’t have divine power, I can’t lose to you.”
“I am a swordsman who overcame the limitations of mortals without any miracles. Isn’t it natural?”
Ahbooboo said, pulling a sword from his waist.
I finally understood the action.
What Ahbooboo was saying.
“It’s been a long time since we met, and it’s so sad to have to fight. Don’t worry too much. I will do it in moderation and return you to your home planet.
“No, isn’t this crazy?”
