‘I can let this happen.’
That was the only thought Kaz had at that moment. It was a thought that anyone in his situation would have, but unfortunately for him, his body couldn’t move like he wanted it to.
While he struggled to dodge or at least put up some form of defense, Sedi finished charging her attack.
And like her first attack, she aimed for his face once more.
There was a sound similar to a cannon being fired, and Kaz’s body was sent flying into the air like a cannonball.
He’d been sent several hundreds of feet away. It would have been nice if she could have sent him so far that he was no longer visible, but unfortunately, that was the strongest attack Sedi could muster up in her current state.
Panting, Sedi collapsed onto her b.u.t.t.
She turned to look beside her.
“…so he… pa.s.sed out.”
So it seemed.
She couldn’t help but feel like he deserved the rest. From beginning to end, he had used the resources at his disposal to turn this unfortunate situation in their favor.
He’d intentionally provoked Kaz in order to make him get close before shoving his staff into his mouth. (TL:…)
However, it was a very dangerous plan. If anything had gone wrong, he would have died.
He gambled with his life. He chose to risk his life in order to give them a chance to win.
For some reason, she couldn’t help but feel that Lukas was used to doing things like this.
She knew that most Absolutes who were once mortals were beings who had very dramatic pasts. Lukas had probably gone through countless life and death situations, and experienced many things.
Sedi suddenly felt a strong curiosity about the life Lukas had lived, but now was not the time to think about that.
Panting, Sedi looked into the distance again. Her vision was blurry and she couldn’t see the spot where Kaz landed, but she kept looking nonetheless.
If he were to come back one more time… she was now certain.
They couldn’t win.
Of course, with the damage she dealt to him, it wouldn’t be strange if Kaz remained unconscious for a long time. She had hit his defenseless body more than a hundred times, and the bones in his face had definitely been smashed with that punch.
He shouldn’t be able to get up again. Or at least that’s what would happen in a normal situation.
Nevertheless, her anxiety didn’t go away.
For the first time in her life, Sedi prayed earnestly.
She prayed for that disgusting b.a.s.t.a.r.d to never appear again.
She sat for a while, waiting.
Perhaps her prayers had been answered. Because there were no signs of Kaz even after a long time had pa.s.sed. Even the dust storm that had risen in the area had begun to calm down.
She knew that he wasn’t dead, but… if he was unconscious, then they might have a chance to escape.
He said he was bound to the island, so they could just run to another island for now.
With that in mind, Sedi turned to look at the sea.
And instantly became speechless. She was so shocked that she wouldn’t be surprised if her hair had turned white.
When did he move? She hadn’t seen him. She didn’t even feel him approach.
Behind them, in the direction of the sea, a being was standing there.
Kaz smiled, showing off his bloodied mouth and broken teeth.
Even though his tongue should have been torn apart, he could still speak with perfect p.r.o.nunciation.
[What is it? Do you think I look ugly now?]
What the h.e.l.l? Was this guy some kind of zombie or something?
Kaz rubbed a finger against his lip for a while before muttering.
[Almost all my teeth are broken. My tongue has been torn to pieces, and my oesophagus has been burned. Even the roof of my mouth has been smashed. I think I’ll probably have trouble eating for a while. This is the second time I’ve ever been this injured. But…]
His cold gaze turned to Lukas.
[This is the first time in my life I’ve ever felt so dirty.]
It was different from when he fought that woman.
Obviously, being completely destroyed by a stronger being hurt his pride greatly, but it was still understandable.
But what about Lukas? He was so weak and fragile that he would burst into pieces if he just squeezed him too hard. He claimed to be some kind of Absolute or whatever, but Kaz didn’t believe a word of his bulls.h.i.t.
No. Even if what he was saying was true, at least for now, he was still weaker than him. ‘Absolute’ly weak.
That was the truth.
And yet, he had been pushed to such a state by this garbage.
It was the greatest humiliation, and an incurable scar on his pride. His pride and desire to show off had disappeared, now, all that was left was rage and hatred.
Anyone could predict what Kaz was going to do now.
With heavy steps, he walked towards Lukas. He was already unconscious. He was certain of this fact. So now it would be easier than—
Kaz looked down at the black haired girl that had moved to stand in front of him.
[Get out of the way.]
“…what are you going to do?”
[I will kill that man.”
No further explanation was needed.
But Kaz decided to add one anyway.

[Originally, I had planned to torture him. I was going to make him regret ever being born. After all, this is my first time feeling so humiliated in my life. Fortunately, I’m quite skilled in that area. No matter how proud or stubborn a person pretends to be, I can make them look worse than a pig in less than a week.]
In fact, it was the same for Sedi.
Lukas was her first parent. Because those who gave birth to her couldn’t be considered her parents.
She felt like she’d been saved from death.
After that, it was pretty fun.
She began to understand Lukas. It was very different from her time with the Black Horned Demon G.o.d.
It wasn’t a one-sided interaction. Instead, it was more like a two-way connection.
Lukas was clumsy, but he clearly tried his best to treat her like a real daughter.
Then, one day, Lukas said to her.
‘The way a father should treat his daughter. What I can do for you. And what the ideal relationship between a father and daughter should be.
Think carefully… About what you’d want a father to do.’
After that, she’d thought long and hard before eventually realising.
Lukas had given her a new life. He was no different that her saviour.
It didn’t need to be packaged in such a grandiose manner. They were parent and child.
It was filial piety between a parent and his child.
She liked that more.
[What is it?]
“I’m the one you want.”
“If I listen to you…”
At that moment, Sedi did something she’d never done before in her entire life.
“…can you let my father go?”
She never would have thought there would be a day when she did something like this. After thinking this, Sedi smiled forcefully.
In order to save Lukas, she was willing to be with this guy who was so disgusting that just looking at him made her want to throw up.
Those were her honest feelings.
Kaz was silent for a while. He looked down at Sedi without any expression on his face before finally opening his mouth.
[…it can’t be helped.]
Just as Sedi was about to let out a sigh of relief at his words, Kaz continued.
[If you had said this when I first arrived, I probably would have agreed to that request. But that is impossible now. It’s too late.”
[Move aside, my partner.]
Kaz’s voice remained indifferent.
[Or I’ll kill you too.]
