There was no way to know what exactly was happening beyond the connecting path.

But Odin estimated that it would take four days for the giant of fire to destroy the connecting path and appear.

“Because they have no reason to waste time.”

They had no reason to completely burn down Olympus. It was because there was no one left at Olympus that would resist against the Kingdom of Fire.

The wish of the Kingdom of Fire- Anjra Mainiuu and Surtr after having become one, was the destruction of all worlds. If you thought about it in their position, it was more important to strike a world that still had power left to resist than a world that they could destroy whenever they wanted.

“They have no reason to give us time.”

Odin glared at the closed entrance of the connecting path while sitting inside a battle carriage. There was a huge golden door in that place that a hundred people could pass through. It didn’t look like that originally but it changed like that while repairing what got destroyed because of what happened with Olympus last time.

Shiny and flashy things were Freya’s tastes.

“It’s breaking.”

Freya, that was leaning her head on Odin’s shoulder, spoke in a low voice. She acted calms but her fingers were trembling in fear.

Odin stroke Freya’s sky blue hair with his big hand. He kissed her in her forehead that was acting stubbornly saying that she wanted to be with him at least until the battle started and then raised her chin and coveted her small and pretty lips.

Freya pulled on Odin’s neck as if hanging on it. It was because she didn’t know if this kiss would be the last one.

Odin hugged Freya roughly. He didn’t only receive her tongue but also desired it as if he was about to devour her.

But that only lasted for a moment. Their lips separated and their breaths also got further.

Odin stroke Freya’s cheek. His hands were so big they could cover Freya’s small face. Freya placed her cheek on Odin’s hand. She looked up at him with teary eyes and as if she was glaring him.

“Please return. I’m fine if you come back like a wanker but never die.”

“I will try my best to return fine. Only then will we be able to continue.”

Freya hit Odin’s chest and then got hugged by him again. She embraced Odin for the last time.

Let there be a next time.

Let it be able to continue.

Freya continued to kiss Odin’s cheek as if it wasn’t enough no matter how many times she did it and then flew away after having transformed into a swan. Her role at this battle wasn’t to fight at the front lines. An important role that only the Goddess of magic could do was given to her.

Odin didn’t look at the swan that left. He also didn’t look at his body that still had her warmth.

He just raised his head to look at the connecting path. Freya was right. The connecting path was being destroyed. The tightly closed gates would also open soon.

“For Asgard and the nine realms.”

Odin said in a low voice.

&

‘Is your condition fine? What about your waist?’

Cuchulainn, that had been staying silent after standing on the battlefield, asked suddenly. And then Astelone spoke hurriedly before Tae Ho that was looking at the connecting path could even open his mouth.

[It would be glad if it was only his waist. His entire body is filled with nail marks. In addition, Heda and Adenmaha didn’t only have their waists dislocated but their entire bodies are filled with bruises. They went wild saying that they could recover if they ate a golden apple.]

‘Oh wow.’

[On top of that, last night…]

‘Last night?’

“You really are making a novel.”

When Tae Ho hit the blade of Dragon Sword, Astelone grumbled like a spoiled kid that had just gotten hit.

[What, what, what? Did I make a lie? Huh? Did I lie?]

A fact was always a strong weapon. Cuchulainn clicked his tongue as Tae Ho flinched and wasn’t able to answer.

‘Beast like bastard. In addition, weren’t those golden apples a precious thing? Can you eat them like that? Isn’t that an overuse in authority?’

Cuchulainn seemed to work well with Astelone but now had even learned how to attack with facts from her. Tae Ho flinched once again and spoke of a different thing.

“How do you feel Cuchulainn?”

‘I feel the same as usual. But I made thorough preparations to fight compared to a certain someone. It is only limited for this day but Gae Bolg will be stronger than usual.’

But instead, it wouldn’t be able to show its proper power for three or four days after that.

But it didn’t matter. It was because the current battle would decide if the days to come would exist or not.

Tae Ho looked at the tip of Gae Bolg. He could realize that it was stronger than usual without using the ‘eyes of the dragon’.

“Cuchulainn.”

‘What?’

“Did you say your farewell to Scathach master?”

‘I’m going to meet her tonight so why should I do that? But of course, I always treat master well. I’m a real gentleman compared to someone.’

When Cuchulainn started to act all big, the silent Astelone butted in again.

[Right, right. Adenmaha was begging you to save her yesterday. To let her rest a bit.]

‘Oh wow.’

He had barely managed to change the subject but it changed to that side once again.

“Can’t I fight only with the Sword of the Round table…”

Astelone chuckled as Tae Ho lamented.

[Well, shall I stop with the truthful fact attack at this point?]

‘Right. It seems like his nervousness got eased.’

Tae Ho blinked at Cuchulainn’s words and then realized that what the two of them said was true.

He was still. He was certainly nervous. Cuchulainn laughed and said.

‘Why shrink down? That’s not like you. Hey, just fight. Don’t cower saying things like ‘the fate of the world rests in my shoulders!’ or ‘I must win!’. When didn’t you fight while shouldering the fate of the world in your shoulder? It’s not even the first time.’

[Right, it’s not the first time. Just do what you did in Dark Age. You rescued Earth several times there. It’s not that different.]

They were speaking playfully but it was all true. Tae Ho had already saved the world several times and will keep doing that.

He felt more comfortable in body and mind just by having spoken a bit.

Astelone let out a sigh as if she was satisfied and stayed silent. It was because speaking itself bothered her. What she had just done was merely for the sake of Tae Ho.

Cuchulainn also got satisfied. He saw the face of Tae Ho that got much better and asked.

‘How much is there left?’

“About 3 minutes.”

‘It’s enough to calm yourself. Inhale some air and go. Don’t make me embarrassed.’

Cuchulainn was the same as always that’s why Tae Ho also had to be himself.

The armies of Asgard, Olympus and the Temple that were gathered near the connecting path and the black holy dragon that was behind them.

Tae Ho didn’t belong in any of that group. He was located in a place that he was able to see all of them by himself.

When the door opened.

And when the battle started.

Tae Ho activated the ‘eyes of the dragon’. A crack started to form in the tightly closed golden door.

&

The crack became bigger. It then spread to all of the door and crimson flames started to come out from that opening.

Heimdall placed Gjallarhorn in his mouth. Odin stood up and Zeus grabbed Astrape. Nuwa, that was lying down in a deep place of Valhalla, raised her head.

Sigurd didn’t say anything. He just pulled out Gram silently.

Heracles raised his club. His eyes covered by the fur of the Nemean lion released a clear light.

Son Wukong stood still and glared at the entrance of the connecting path. He was clenching his staff more strongly than needed.

“For Asgard and the nine realms.”

Thor said. Thunder flashed at the same time and everyone at the battlefield cheered.

The Steel warriors and the warriors of Valhalla raised their hands and hit their chests. They roared with a voice that didn’t fall behind to that lightning.

“For Asgard and the nine realms!”

Heimdall blew Gjallarhorn loudly. The Valkyries of Heimdall that were everywhere in the battlefield also blew their horns.

Rasgrid took a deep breath. Reginleif raised the flag high. Gandur put strength in her hands holding the spear and Ingrid turned to look at the direction Tae Ho was at for the last time.

“My warrior Tae ho.”

Heda, that was leading the army of Idun, spoke with Idun’s voice. Her golden eyes could see the entrance of the connecting path-breaking into pieces.

Crimson flames surged up like an explosion. It didn’t only tear down the entrance but also destroyed its surroundings. A crack got formed in the sky and the sky got destroyed like glass breaking. Odin yelled at that moment.

“Fire!”

Countless things flew towards the entrance of the connecting path. Rains of steel and Black flashes poured down like rain.

The dragons of the Temple opened their mouths and fired a breath with the dragons of Olympus.

Nidhogg roared. The black holy dragon spread its wings and then released a white light. She raised pillars in a place where all of the armies could fit in. After that, she transformed into a World Dragon that wielded the power of Asgard and Terra in one body.

The World Dragon also emitted light. All of the combatants that could be mobilized striked the broken entrance.

And Odin waited. Zeus held his breath.

It was like he had expected. Surtr didn’t do something as foolish as pouting his head as soon as he broke the gates. It was the same even after the saturation ended.

“The enemy is coming!”

Reginleif yelled. The forces of Memphis and Maya were the ones that had passed the burning connecting path and charging towards Asgard.

The group that was in front of the army of Memphis that was composed of dead beings was a chariot troop that was formed by tens of thousands of soldiers. The ones following them from behind was an army of prisoners composed by humans and beasts.

They had to stop them first. Heimdall blew the horn trumpet once again and the forces started to move following that order.

“Let the light of the Temple be eternal.”

Son Wukong hit his shoulder with his staff and said. The strongest warrior of the martial artists of the Temple put a nasty smile. The Sword king inserted energy in his treasured sword without saying anything.

“Shall the glory of Olympus be with us.”

Heracles said. The great hero of Artemis, Atalante, tied up her shoelaces. The heroes, Gods and Nymphs grabbed their respective weapons.

“Shield-Wall!”

Ragnar yelled with all his strength. He encouraged all the warriors of Valhalla as the viking king.

The forces that were at the front lines raised their shields. They faced against the cavalry troop that was charging like crazy.

Kwagagagagagagang!

The sound of thunder was heard. It was the sound created when tens of thousands of forces clashed head-on.

“Siri.”

Bracky said. Siri, that was carrying Bracky at her back after having transformed into a golden wolf, nodded. She started to ride. It was because giants and monsters had also started to appear beyond the door.

They were mixed randomly. There were the Gigantes, the enemy of Olympus, the Sphynx of Memphis and evil elementals of Maya.

But that wasn’t all. There were also the monsters of Xindu and Dilmun.

The devils and evil dragons of Avesta surged up to the sky.

“The sky is ours!”

Hraesvelgr yelled with Vedrfolnir that commanded the birds of the highest branch. Hundreds of thousands of birds covered the sky. They charged valiantly towards the evil dragons and devils.

The dragons of the Temple didn’t stay still either. They held their respective dragon vein to create harmony in the heavens and faced against the evil dragons.

Echidna, that was with Idun’s legion, held back her scream. Some of her children including Hydra opened their eyes roundly.

It was because there was a huge existence that filled the entire connecting path. It was because a dragon that had magma flowing in its body had roared.

“Typhon.”

Echidna said. That thing was Typhon. It was the strongest warrior of Olympus that had defeated Zeus once in the past.

Echidna trembled in grief. She could only do so.

That thing wasn’t Typhon. It was like controlling a corpse with black magic. The thing over there was merely Typhon’s body and strength. It didn’t contain a trace of his soul. And Echidna knew what that meant.

They had completely exterminated him. They had annihilated his soul so that it was easier to control his body.

Echidna screamed. She transformed into a winged snake in an instant. She let out a grievous yell and charged.

And then, right at that moment.

Tae Ho realized that the time had come. He made the sentences of Erin and Asgard appear in their respective hands. Wings of light that had the sentences of Olympus and the Temple engraved spread at his back.

Tae Ho grabbed the Sword of the Round Table and Dragon Sword Astelone. He then flew up slowly.

Zeus saw that.

Odin opened his mouth and called out his name.

“Surtr.”

The giant of fire that brought the end to the world.

The king of Muspelheim that lead the Kingdom of Fire.

He had shown up. He swung his sword of fire in the opening that couldn’t even be called a door now.

The sky broke once again. The crimson flames surged up with the intent to cover the entire battlefield.

[It would be glad if it was only his waist. His entire body is filled with nail marks. In addition, Heda and Adenmaha didn’t only have their waists dislocated but their entire bodies are filled with bruises. They went wild saying that they could recover if they ate a golden apple.]

[It would be glad if it was only his waist. His entire body is filled with nail marks. In addition, Heda and Adenmaha didn’t only have their waists dislocated but their entire bodies are filled with bruises. They went wild saying that they could recover if they ate a golden apple.]

“How do you feel Cuchulainn?”

But instead, it wouldn’t be able to show its proper power for three or four days after that.

‘How much is there left?’

“About 3 minutes.”

‘It’s enough to calm yourself. Inhale some air and go. Don’t make me embarrassed.’

Cuchulainn was the same as always that’s why Tae Ho also had to be himself.

The armies of Asgard, Olympus and the Temple that were gathered near the connecting path and the black holy dragon that was behind them.

Tae Ho didn’t belong in any of that group. He was located in a place that he was able to see all of them by himself.

When the door opened.

And when the battle started.

Tae Ho activated the ‘eyes of the dragon’. A crack started to form in the tightly closed golden door.

&

The crack became bigger. It then spread to all of the door and crimson flames started to come out from that opening.

Heimdall placed Gjallarhorn in his mouth. Odin stood up and Zeus grabbed Astrape. Nuwa, that was lying down in a deep place of Valhalla, raised her head.

Sigurd didn’t say anything. He just pulled out Gram silently.

Heracles raised his club. His eyes covered by the fur of the Nemean lion released a clear light.

Son Wukong stood still and glared at the entrance of the connecting path. He was clenching his staff more strongly than needed.

“For Asgard and the nine realms.”

Thor said. Thunder flashed at the same time and everyone at the battlefield cheered.

The Steel warriors and the warriors of Valhalla raised their hands and hit their chests. They roared with a voice that didn’t fall behind to that lightning.

“For Asgard and the nine realms!”

Heimdall blew Gjallarhorn loudly. The Valkyries of Heimdall that were everywhere in the battlefield also blew their horns.

Rasgrid took a deep breath. Reginleif raised the flag high. Gandur put strength in her hands holding the spear and Ingrid turned to look at the direction Tae Ho was at for the last time.

“My warrior Tae ho.”

Heda, that was leading the army of Idun, spoke with Idun’s voice. Her golden eyes could see the entrance of the connecting path-breaking into pieces.

Crimson flames surged up like an explosion. It didn’t only tear down the entrance but also destroyed its surroundings. A crack got formed in the sky and the sky got destroyed like glass breaking. Odin yelled at that moment.

“Fire!”

Countless things flew towards the entrance of the connecting path. Rains of steel and Black flashes poured down like rain.

The dragons of the Temple opened their mouths and fired a breath with the dragons of Olympus.

Nidhogg roared. The black holy dragon spread its wings and then released a white light. She raised pillars in a place where all of the armies could fit in. After that, she transformed into a World Dragon that wielded the power of Asgard and Terra in one body.

The World Dragon also emitted light. All of the combatants that could be mobilized striked the broken entrance.

And Odin waited. Zeus held his breath.

It was like he had expected. Surtr didn’t do something as foolish as pouting his head as soon as he broke the gates. It was the same even after the saturation ended.

“The enemy is coming!”

Reginleif yelled. The forces of Memphis and Maya were the ones that had passed the burning connecting path and charging towards Asgard.

The group that was in front of the army of Memphis that was composed of dead beings was a chariot troop that was formed by tens of thousands of soldiers. The ones following them from behind was an army of prisoners composed by humans and beasts.

They had to stop them first. Heimdall blew the horn trumpet once again and the forces started to move following that order.

“Let the light of the Temple be eternal.”

Son Wukong hit his shoulder with his staff and said. The strongest warrior of the martial artists of the Temple put a nasty smile. The Sword king inserted energy in his treasured sword without saying anything.

“Shall the glory of Olympus be with us.”

Heracles said. The great hero of Artemis, Atalante, tied up her shoelaces. The heroes, Gods and Nymphs grabbed their respective weapons.

“Shield-Wall!”

Ragnar yelled with all his strength. He encouraged all the warriors of Valhalla as the viking king.

The forces that were at the front lines raised their shields. They faced against the cavalry troop that was charging like crazy.

Kwagagagagagagang!

The sound of thunder was heard. It was the sound created when tens of thousands of forces clashed head-on.

“Siri.”

Bracky said. Siri, that was carrying Bracky at her back after having transformed into a golden wolf, nodded. She started to ride. It was because giants and monsters had also started to appear beyond the door.

They were mixed randomly. There were the Gigantes, the enemy of Olympus, the Sphynx of Memphis and evil elementals of Maya.

But that wasn’t all. There were also the monsters of Xindu and Dilmun.

The devils and evil dragons of Avesta surged up to the sky.

“The sky is ours!”

Hraesvelgr yelled with Vedrfolnir that commanded the birds of the highest branch. Hundreds of thousands of birds covered the sky. They charged valiantly towards the evil dragons and devils.

The dragons of the Temple didn’t stay still either. They held their respective dragon vein to create harmony in the heavens and faced against the evil dragons.

Echidna, that was with Idun’s legion, held back her scream. Some of her children including Hydra opened their eyes roundly.

It was because there was a huge existence that filled the entire connecting path. It was because a dragon that had magma flowing in its body had roared.

“Typhon.”

Echidna said. That thing was Typhon. It was the strongest warrior of Olympus that had defeated Zeus once in the past.

Echidna trembled in grief. She could only do so.

That thing wasn’t Typhon. It was like controlling a corpse with black magic. The thing over there was merely Typhon’s body and strength. It didn’t contain a trace of his soul. And Echidna knew what that meant.

They had completely exterminated him. They had annihilated his soul so that it was easier to control his body.

Echidna screamed. She transformed into a winged snake in an instant. She let out a grievous yell and charged.

And then, right at that moment.

Tae Ho realized that the time had come. He made the sentences of Erin and Asgard appear in their respective hands. Wings of light that had the sentences of Olympus and the Temple engraved spread at his back.

Tae Ho grabbed the Sword of the Round Table and Dragon Sword Astelone. He then flew up slowly.

Zeus saw that.

Odin opened his mouth and called out his name.

“Surtr.”

The giant of fire that brought the end to the world.

The king of Muspelheim that lead the Kingdom of Fire.

He had shown up. He swung his sword of fire in the opening that couldn’t even be called a door now.

The sky broke once again. The crimson flames surged up with the intent to cover the entire battlefield.

ED:

There was no way to know what exactly was happening beyond the connecting path.

But Odin estimated that it would take four days for the giant of fire to destroy the connecting path and appear.

“Because they have no reason to waste time.”

They had no reason to completely burn down Olympus. It was because there was no one left at Olympus that would resist against the Kingdom of Fire.

The wish of the Kingdom of Fire- Anjra Mainiuu and Surtr after having become one, was the destruction of all worlds. If you thought about it in their position, it was more important to strike a world that still had power left to resist than a world that they could destroy whenever they wanted.

“They have no reason to give us time.”

Odin glared at the closed entrance of the connecting path while sitting inside a battle carriage. There was a huge golden door in that place that a hundred people could pass through. It didn’t look like that originally but it changed like that while repairing what got destroyed because of what happened with Olympus last time.

Shiny and flashy things were Freya’s tastes.

“It’s breaking.”

Freya, that was leaning her head on Odin’s shoulder, spoke in a low voice. She acted calms but her fingers were trembling in fear.

Odin stroke Freya’s sky blue hair with his big hand. He kissed her in her forehead that was acting stubbornly saying that she wanted to be with him at least until the battle started and then raised her chin and coveted her small and pretty lips.

Freya pulled on Odin’s neck as if hanging on it. It was because she didn’t know if this kiss would be the last one.

Odin hugged Freya roughly. He didn’t only receive her tongue but also desired it as if he was about to devour her.

But that only lasted for a moment. Their lips separated and their breaths also got further.

Odin stroke Freya’s cheek. His hands were so big they could cover Freya’s small face. Freya placed her cheek on Odin’s hand. She looked up at him with teary eyes and as if she was glaring him.

“Please return. I’m fine if you come back like a wanker but never die.”

“I will try my best to return fine. Only then will we be able to continue.”

Freya hit Odin’s chest and then got hugged by him again. She embraced Odin for the last time.

Let there be a next time.

Let it be able to continue.

Freya continued to kiss Odin’s cheek as if it wasn’t enough no matter how many times she did it and then flew away after having transformed into a swan. Her role at this battle wasn’t to fight at the front lines. An important role that only the Goddess of magic could do was given to her.

Odin didn’t look at the swan that left. He also didn’t look at his body that still had her warmth.

He just raised his head to look at the connecting path. Freya was right. The connecting path was being destroyed. The tightly closed gates would also open soon.

“For Asgard and the nine realms.”

Odin said in a low voice.

&

‘Is your condition fine? What about your waist?’

Cuchulainn, that had been staying silent after standing on the battlefield, asked suddenly. And then Astelone spoke hurriedly before Tae Ho that was looking at the connecting path could even open his mouth.

[It would be glad if it was only his waist. His entire body is filled with nail marks. In addition, Heda and Adenmaha didn’t only have their waists dislocated but their entire bodies are filled with bruises. They went wild saying that they could recover if they ate a golden apple.]

‘Oh wow.’

[On top of that, last night…]

‘Last night?’

“You really are making a novel.”

When Tae Ho hit the blade of Dragon Sword, Astelone grumbled like a spoiled kid that had just gotten hit.

[What, what, what? Did I make a lie? Huh? Did I lie?]

A fact was always a strong weapon. Cuchulainn clicked his tongue as Tae Ho flinched and wasn’t able to answer.

‘Beast like bastard. In addition, weren’t those golden apples a precious thing? Can you eat them like that? Isn’t that an overuse in authority?’

Cuchulainn seemed to work well with Astelone but now had even learned how to attack with facts from her. Tae Ho flinched once again and spoke of a different thing.

“How do you feel Cuchulainn?”

‘I feel the same as usual. But I made thorough preparations to fight compared to a certain someone. It is only limited for this day but Gae Bolg will be stronger than usual.’

But instead, it wouldn’t be able to show its proper power for three or four days after that.

But it didn’t matter. It was because the current battle would decide if the days to come would exist or not.

Tae Ho looked at the tip of Gae Bolg. He could realize that it was stronger than usual without using the ‘eyes of the dragon’.

“Cuchulainn.”

‘What?’

“Did you say your farewell to Scathach master?”

‘I’m going to meet her tonight so why should I do that? But of course, I always treat master well. I’m a real gentleman compared to someone.’

When Cuchulainn started to act all big, the silent Astelone butted in again.

[Right, right. Adenmaha was begging you to save her yesterday. To let her rest a bit.]

‘Oh wow.’

He had barely managed to change the subject but it changed to that side once again.

“Can’t I fight only with the Sword of the Round table…”

Astelone chuckled as Tae Ho lamented.

[Well, shall I stop with the truthful fact attack at this point?]

‘Right. It seems like his nervousness got eased.’

Tae Ho blinked at Cuchulainn’s words and then realized that what the two of them said was true.

He was still. He was certainly nervous. Cuchulainn laughed and said.

‘Why shrink down? That’s not like you. Hey, just fight. Don’t cower saying things like ‘the fate of the world rests in my shoulders!’ or ‘I must win!’. When didn’t you fight while shouldering the fate of the world in your shoulder? It’s not even the first time.’

[Right, it’s not the first time. Just do what you did in Dark Age. You rescued Earth several times there. It’s not that different.]

They were speaking playfully but it was all true. Tae Ho had already saved the world several times and will keep doing that.

He felt more comfortable in body and mind just by having spoken a bit.

Astelone let out a sigh as if she was satisfied and stayed silent. It was because speaking itself bothered her. What she had just done was merely for the sake of Tae Ho.

Cuchulainn also got satisfied. He saw the face of Tae Ho that got much better and asked.

‘How much is there left?’

“About 3 minutes.”

‘It’s enough to calm yourself. Inhale some air and go. Don’t make me embarrassed.’
