Chapter 234: Demon World (1)
Camael was caught. The powerless angel was no longer my opponent. I wasn’t completely fine, but the one month battle finally came to an end.
However, I didn’t get rid of Camael. I found a way to use him.
‘I can absorb him like Gustarte.’
I had once absorbed divinity. Thanks to that, I got more than I expected. Of course, it wasn’t entirely arbitrary but I could become a monster if I absorbed Camael.
It was impossible if I was just a transcendent person. Even if I succeeded in absorbing him, the body wouldn’t survive and would explode. This was true even if my body had been reconstructed several times.
However, I had the key to balance. There were still some vacant spots. I hadn’t reached my limits. It was clear that I could become stronger.
I grabbed a stone made of the fake Greed. The Seven Sins were aimed at the gods and could trap them.
Greed was suitable for what I intended.
Greed needed to eat in order to absorb something.
But this was a fake. A skill wasn’t generated when I obtained it. The Seven Sins were held by the Dark Spirit King.
However, that didn’t mean there was no way.
I used my remaining points to buy all skills related to ‘absorption or digestion’ from the Store of All Things and the Achievements Store.
It was a universal skill that could combine everything.
After that, I tried to combine skills as well as the stone of the fake greed.
Of course, this was risky behaviour. Once created, the skill couldn’t be deleted even if it wasn’t good. If a debuff skill was created then it would be a dilemma.
In my previous life, there was an incident where Duke Dipella did something similar.
But I was different.
I used this skill for the first time. Then the tattoo on my left hand started to shine.
|-Please select a skill to enhance.|
It was a no-brainer.
The dragon swallowing a mirror blinked.
|-‘Mind’s Eye (Epic)’ has been upgraded to ‘God’s Eyes (Demigod).’|
The light turned off.
Before long, my view of the world started to change.
God’s Eyes. An absolute power overlooking all things. My eyes looked around at the surroundings. Just by watching, I was able to see when the rocks were created and how they had survived the traces of time. My eyes didn’t perfectly track the past, but the important events were played.
I had a blank expression of surprise on my face. I hadn’t expected Mind’s Eye to change to this. The rating had increased and many things could now be seen.
I raised my head. The Celestial Door was still in the sky. However, this time I noticed a giant eye in the door that I hadn’t seen before.
The giant eye was watching the ground.
To be exact, it was staring at me.
‘The Celestial World’s eyes.’
I immediately flew into the sky.
Once I reached the Celestial Door, I faced the giant eye.
“Are you searching for the summoned Camael? Or are you spying on me? Will it be detrimental to the Heavenly World?”
At that moment, the huge eye split apart. Thousands, no tens of thousands of eyes were watching me at once. I just laughed.
“This is scarier than I thought. I can’t move now that I know this.”
What to do?
This was Death Bringer’s plot.
Maybe the eye had been there since the first angels were summoned.
If the eye had been watching the ground since that time then it wouldn’t realize Death Bringer’s ruse.
But it didn’t show any movements. I didn’t know if it was because the eye thought that Earth had nothing to do with it or because the Celestial World was in the sky…
It was clear that the Celestial King was a considerable coward.
“Continue to watch. But you will have to look from the sidelines. If you jump into my fight then I will immediately destroy your Celestial World. I promise.”
I knocked on the Celestial Door with magic power.
I knew it wouldn’t open but I didn’t like that it had been secretly watching the ground.
I would rather it stay as a bystander for the rest of its life. Unless it was forcibly summoned like Camael.
Otherwise I would thoroughly break it down.
This was the demon king’s promise.
I owned divinity and had Diablo’s power. My words had weight to them. Otherwise, there was a chance that True Words could lose power. The eye slowly disappeared.
I hadn’t noticed until the rating of Mind’s Eye increased…I was in a bad mood, but I wasn’t going to declare war. The Celestial King, or god, would have carefully listened to my words.
I descended to the ground. I entered my dungeon and headed to the core.
I looked through the Store of All Things and Achievements Store to find the necessary things.
‘I can see it.’
I wanted a combination of skills.
I was going to combine the skills and fake stone using Combine Everything.
My goal was to use Reverse World to change the rating and then absorb Camael.
I activated Combine Everything and looked through the skill books. God’s Eye showed the intended result of the combination.
If I knew the answer then I didn’t need to experiment. I didn’t need to experience a failure like Duke Dipella. I could get the maximum benefits without any risk.
‘I can’t do it just once.’
I first joined ‘Appetite (Normal) with the stone of the fake Greed.
And the Absorption (Rare) skill was created. This alone wasn’t enough.
I once again combined the skill ‘Digestion (Normal)’ with the stone and this resulted in ‘Bio-Absorption (Rare)’ skill. This absorption wasn’t the type I wanted.
Yet if I combined Absorption and Bio-Absorption then I got my desired result.
|-‘Robbery (Ex R)’ has been completed.|
This was it!
Robbery. Taking something by force.
At first, I was thinking about enhancing Corruption. However, the upgrade to legend rank had reduced the rebound of using that skill. I thought it was better to raise a skill with a low rating.
|-Please select a skill to enhance.|
I didn’t think about it anymore.
|-Robbery (Ex R) has been upgraded to ‘Absolute Robbery (Demigod).’
-You have finished enhancing skills with Reverse World. It is impossible to enhance any more skills.
Camael had injuries that couldn’t be healed and was stuck deep in the ground. He collapsed and didn’t move a single inch. He was five metres tall but couldn’t do anything.
I had a determined expression on my face. This would determine if it was worth strengthening the Robbery skill. If there weren’t any effects then I had made an irrevocable mistake.
I placed a hand on my chest. I turned the key to open my insides and hwaaack! The sound was accompanied by a big blast of magic power.
I selected the target.
It was his power.
The first thing I heard was a cracking sound.
Then white light started leaking from Camael.
The light entered the storage place for magic power.
-The power of the seraphim angel Camael has been stolen.
|-The angel Camael was equipped with a mighty divinity. The robbery was successful, but if there isn’t anything to neutralize the divinity then there will be significant side-effects.|
I kept it in mind. Anyway, I was a hunter. A hunter was predatory. In that sense, there was no other word that represented me so well.
After sucking in all of Camael’s power, I locked the key again. The power swirled and integrated with my current power.
‘I feel full.’
I expressed my satisfaction.
I was certain that I was stronger.
I had a determined expression on my face. A calm smile could be seen.
There was no reason not to confirm it.

I passed 800 stat points.
And Camael was a defensive angel, so my related abilities were greatly increased. Intelligence and stamina.
It wasn’t wrong to say that this was enough to resist almost all magic attacks.
Camael’s body was only a shell and he soon turned to dust.
Suddenly, there was a sound from the sky. The Celestial Door was fading away.
The giant eye was already gone.
I spread my wings and floated in the air.
And I shouted.
