Yuri figured she should get some work-out done for the first time in a while, so she decided to visit where the assembly for pseudo-religion was held.

“You need the exact location of the Horollala leader? Give me a minute.”

Five minutes after she arrived at Odin’s information agency, she got the exact location that she wanted.

“It’s because of that kid, isn’t it? Should I come with you?”

Odin offered in a lighthearted manner; he didn’t seem to think it was dangerous at all.

Yuri didn’t bother considering it and shook her head.

“No, I know you’re busy. Plus it might take some time anyway.”

She left Odin’s information agency alone, just like when she came in.

The sun had already set so the sky was dark.

She still had about an hour left before it was time to have dinner with Lakis. So this could also count as a pre-meal exercise.

Yuri headed towards the address inputted in her mind.

The nest of the pseudo-religion, Horollala was quite close to District 7’s new town where Odin’s information agency was located. It wasn’t that hard to find the office for the pseudo-religion.

The building where the Horollala leader had rooted himself looked ordinary, but a strange stone statue was erected in front of it.
It had a smooth, round head and tentacles that sprouted out in several directions. At a glance, it looked like an octopus or a squid.

Tsk, Tsk, Yuri clicked her tongue.

‘Of all ancient gods, why is it this one…I mean, of course, I respect his preferences.’

Apparently, they even planned to hold a meeting this evening.

And maybe that was why she kept seeing people with a black cloth over their heads, walking into the building, one by one. They were guards watching the surroundings, but Yuri easily entered the building.

The inside of the building was dark. From what she could tell, they had deliberately lit only a few candles to create a certain mood.

“Believers, please come this way. Those attending this assembly for the first time need to fill out their names right here.”

Yuri went to the auditorium where the believers were heading since she wanted to get an idea of the internal situation of this pseudo-religion.

People in black clothing were gathered there. It looked like roughly 50 people. Just like she’d heard, the Horollala religion had only emerged recently so it didn’t have that many believers.

Right then, a group of people walked onto the platform in front.

Judging from their attire, they seemed to hold quite important positions in this pseudo-religion.

“How many people came today?”

“We have about 10 more people than last time.”

“Hmm, that’s less than I expected. But I think we’re off to a good start. What about the tribute?”

“It looks like we got some useful stuff today.”

“Oh? Our leader will be pleased then.”

At first, Yuri thought that the man standing at the very front was the leader but after listening to his conversation with the people following him, she realized that wasn’t the case.

“We welcome all in attendance for today’s assembly.”

The man standing on the stage stretched out his arms and greeted the believers with a business smile.

“Now, let us recite the chant of blessing!”

And when Yuri heard the chant that the man yelled right after, she almost snorted.

“Horollala!”

The believers gathered in front followed his chanting.

“Horollala!”

“Louder!”

“Horollala!!”

“Put your chest into it!”

“Horollala!!!”

The believer’s heartfelt chants of blessing continued a few more times. Then, people in uniform clothing on the stage took an empty box in hand and went down to where the believers stood below.

“Before we invite our leader whose presence is like the sun and light, we shall first have an offering time. Show your heart of dedication to our Horollala god.”

Yuri looked away from the scene and changed location.

‘So they’re getting tribute and offerings now; are they going to have a pyramid scheme to sell drugs or items with the grace of the god Horollala later?’

The hallway was quiet with the exception of maybe one or two believers being led to the main auditorium.

As Yuri pricked up her ears, her excellent hearing caught the sound of whispering conversation. When she moved a little closer, she saw people who were wearing the same clothing as those on the stage.

“The donations today are much bigger than before.”

“Hehe, there are many people too so I think we can sell a lot more things.”

The idea Yuri had a minute ago was correct. They were pushing a cart full of various things.

“…”

Yuri fell silent when she saw this.

Because the wooden carvings in the cart looked exactly like the statue in the front of the religion’s building. But unlike the decoration outside, the shapes were rough and messy like they were roughly carved, making it look more like a real octopus.

“I heard one of the tributes this time was an ancient relic. The leader really likes it.”

“I mean, it did look expensive. The entire ring was transparent, and I think it was made of crystal but it felt much lighter and high-quality, y’know? I heard the leader is going to the assembly today so…”

“You guys over there, hurry up and stop fooling around!”

“Ack, let’s hurry.”

After listening to their conversion, Yuri became curious. There was an ancient relic among the tribute given to the leader?

“Lord Leader, this way please.”

When she focused on her hearing, she learned that the leader was already heading towards the auditorium where the assembly was being held. Normally, Yuri would have searched their room before leaving but because of what she just heard, her interest had shifted.

“Here comes the sun and light that is our leader!”

“Oooh, Horollala!”

“Oooh, our great Horollala god!”

When Yuri heard the enthusiastic response of the believers from afar, she grew even more curious.

“Ehem.”

And so, Yuri stopped by the auditorium again and tried not to laugh when she saw the man who was standing alone on the stage.

‘What even is that.’

The leader was a man much younger-looking than she expected. There was a row of candles behind him almost like he was purposefully trying to create a halo effect. So it looked like light was shining from behind the leader’s head.

“Horollala! My loyal believers!”

The leader stretched his arms wide towards the believers. His shiny, bald head made him look even more radiant.

Indeed, the leader was bald. However, his luxurious mustache and beard which looked like they were painstakingly cared for, were twirled in several directions like tentacles.

Seeing that, she couldn’t help but think of the stone statue erected in front of the door.

‘They look alike.’

Yuri convinced herself and shook her head.

“I, Horollala god, grace all of you who have gathered here…”

BOOM!

“Gah!”

At that very moment, the wall next to the leader burst open with a loud noise.

The leader flew and tumbled down the floor.

The congregation was stunned by the sudden development.

“You filthy cockroaches…”

A man walked out of the dusty haze.

Yuri felt a very distinct sense of déjà vu.

“What gives you the nerve to spread this shit on my land?”

The person who appeared with a terrifying aura was none other than Lakis.

“Lord Leader!”

“W-Who are you!”

It was impossible to live in Carnot without knowing who Lakis was, but it seems they couldn’t see his face properly because of the dust covering the stage. Perhaps they also said that because they had no time to think and the situation was so bizarre.

Lakis looked at them and sneered.

“F*cking low lives.”

His following words were arrogant.

“I am the god of this land.”

The believers who were immersed in the pseudo-religion gasped and sucked in a breath.

The leader, whom they held up like a god, had fallen to the ground and fainted because of Lakis. At those words, someone yelled as if they had found a light in the darkness.

“Ho, Horollala?!”

Thwack! Bang!

“Gah!”

But that person was quickly sent flying and ended up in a similar state as the leader.

“Horollala my foot. F*** that. All of you bastards are getting some sense beaten into you today.”

The men that Lakis brought with him held down the members of the organization.

Lakis approached the leader brimming with murderous intent. When he saw a sparkling ring on the leader’s finger, a vein almost popped on his forehead.

He wondered how to kill this trash as painfully as possible.

Just when Lakis, who was truly angry, was about to cut off the leader’s entire hand…

Swish!

A familiar figure flew down a white thread from the ceiling and landed in front of him.

“Mr. Lakis.”

“Ms. Yuri?”

Lakis was very startled. He was so distracted by the cockroach-like leader that he didn’t notice that Yuri was nearby.

“Ms. Yuri, what are you doing in such a dirty place?”

“Someone I know was affected by this cult. I didn’t expect to meet you here but nice timing. I’ll give this to you.”

Yuri moved her other hand and pulled the things that were bound to her thread. It was the evidence of the things deceptively obtained by the Horollala religion; she had gotten it when the leader’s room was empty.

Lakis unconsciously accepted it.

Frankly, Lakis planned on wiping out all the people in here even without such evidence but since Yuri gave this to him, he decided to take good care of it.

Right then, Yuri’s gaze fell on the leader who was fainted at his feet.

“I heard there’s an ancient relic among the tributes given to the priest. That must be it.”

Lakis flinched at that moment.

Yuri didn’t notice and stared at the ring on the leader’s hand for a moment.

“That ring…Ehem. Do you like it?”

Lakis asked Yuri while studying reaction somewhat impatiently.

“You mean this thing?”

Yuri laughed, not realizing why Lakis was asking that question.

The ring that the leader was wearing was certainly an ancient relic. But it was not as expensive and valuable as the cult people thought. Because it was just a simple, plastic toy ring.

It might seem novel to others because this world didn’t have plastic these days, but it wasn’t like that for Yuri. Once she realized what the tribute was, Yuri was a little deflated.

“No. I’m too old for toys, I guess a kid might like it.”

“…”

Lakis fell silent.
His chilly gaze moved to the side.

One of Lakis’ men, who was managing the believers some distance away, suddenly felt a cold draft behind him and trembled. He was the very subordinate who recommended the ancient relic ring to Lakis, as a gift for Yuri. It Was at this moment that his dark future was forecasted.

“Looks like it will take a while to be done here, Mr. Lakis.”

Yuri looked at the mess around them and said.

She seemed to be wondering if she should go home first since Lakis was working. Lakis was about to say they could just go back now and leave his men to handle everything. But before he could say anything, Yuri turned back to him and said.

“I’ll wait till you’re done. Let’s go home together.”

“…Even though it might take a while?”

“That’s fine. I won’t be bored watching you.”

Lakis’ lips immediately relaxed.

He didn’t know why he felt so ticklish inside when she said she would wait for him no matter how long it took.

Lakis’ mood brightened, and he smiled at Yuri.

It looked like it would take a little more time to find a wedding gift that suited Yuri…

“There isn’t really anything I have to do, we can go now.”

“We can do that?”

Of course, they could. After all, he was a king who could do anything he wanted.

Like that, the two of them left the strange pseudo-religion group and walked down the road under the cover of the darkness.

To their cozy home at the end of the road.

[The End]

 


Translator’s Corner:

Woohoo! We have finally reached the end of this novel. I have to say, this is not how I expected this to end. My exact feeling when I typed the last word in this novel was ‘omg, my fingers hurt’, hahaha. This chapter is so long!

I enjoyed watching Yuri and Lakis interact, I loved Anne-Marie more than I thought I would(she’s so sweet), and I even liked Kalian. He’s not the most exciting character of course, but I can see why he was the male lead. I wish we saw more of Genos & the bug(this one more). The dynamic of the novel changed whenever those two were at play.

Anyway, those are my final thoughts on this. I hope you all enjoyed this novel too(for the most part) and if you’re looking for something new to read, I welcome you to try out my new translation: [Forget My Husband, I’ll Go Make Money]

ShadowDog: OMG… I can’t believe this is over… I was expecting more fluff or slice of life or even the marriage of Lakis and Yuri…. urg, don’t mind me… QwQ

  1. Thank you so much for translating this novel, the ending wasn’t what I expected either, I’m still left wanting more, and not completely satisfied with it. But I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and waiting for your translations.

  2. Ruby and ShadowDog, Thank you so much for your hardwork!!! 💞👏👏👏

    I absolutely enjoyed Yuri and Lakis, definitely looking forward to the manwha and wondering if they’d make modifications or not lolol.

    Glad to see a Happily Ever After ending, even if we didn’t get to see many more things haha.

  3. OMG I can’t believe it’s really over 😭😭😭 The author didn’t explain why Yuri felt emotions when she touchs Lakis neither about the bug origin and what the hell he’s. I also hoped that we could accompany a little Yuri and Lakis newweding’s days or at least the marriage propose but well what can we do 😫😫😫 I missed our cute bird and dog combo in the extras too 😔😔😔 Finally I want to thank you Miss Ruby for all your hard work! I started reading this when it was at the 20th chapter so I accompanied you all the way here and I know it was not easy but it was worth all your time and hard work! I’ll see you again at Forget My Husband (I’m already reading and in love with this 😍😍😍) We love you ❤

  4. Thank you so much ruby and shadowdog for all the hard work you’ve put into this series ❤️ It always brightened my week and made me look forward to something ^^ another fine series finished! Absolutely enjoyed this one a lot, will definitely miss reading it but I’m also looking forward to the plot progression of the new one too! May you both have a nice and comfy week and thank you again!

  5. A PLASTIC RING!?!?!?!

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
    That was epic! An Ancient Relic~ turned out 2 be a common dollar store plastic ring!!!
    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  6. thank you so much for your hard work to translating this novel for us. ❤️

    as expected, that’s a plastic toy ring. 😂

  7. Ahhh… I feel so melancholic. I have a lot to say about the novel but I don’t know what to say first. Though there’s some unfinished plot lines and the ending is kinda open, I absolutely love this novel. Yuri and Lakis is one of my favorite couples. I hope the promo will continue with good art in the future.

    I’m already reading Forget My Husband. I love the FL there too. Since this one ended, that one will be the main project now ig. I wonder if you’ll pick up a new side project in the future? If you do, pls pls pls ask for recommendations! I have a lot of novels I want to be translated. Thank you so very much for all your hard work till now and thanks in advance for the future, Miss Ruby! ❤❤❤

  8. thank you so much miss ruby.. i hope i could see the wedding but seeing both of them happy together is enough.. once again thank you so much, stay healthy ❤️

  9. Ahhh i can’t believe this is the end 😭😭

    Thank you for translating this wonderful story for us 🥺💗

  10. Not them teasing the proposal but never giving us the goodies T_T I’m so ughhhhhhhjsdhjfgh

    Thanks for the translations as always and I’ll be checking out the other works you decide to translate as well!

  11. It ended 😢 !! I can’t believe it actually ended😭😭 ! I can’t say I’m much satisfied with the ending, though. There was so much left especially lakis’s proposal. Either they wanted to end the novel or they are hoping make a sequel (there was just so much left). I’m hoping for the second case 😎😎 even though I’m pretty sure it won’t happen 😅. But in all it was a really really good and unforgettable. Thankyou miss ruby and shadowdog.

  12. Thank you for the hard work!

    I must say, I was expecting a different sort of epilogue, like, the usual happily ever after with most potential new couples, like maybe Odin and Anne-Marie, Genos and Siren, some more wholesome time with Leo and Hestia, etc, but we did get a bunch of nice interaction between Yuri and Lakis. Everything about the rest of the cast is open to interpretation I suppose. In any case, it was quite a wild and fun ride!

    Thanks again for all the time and effort for the high-quality translation. Started reading your translation with Lucia, and now this, next up, I’m looking foward to the next novel you linked. See you next novel!

  13. Aw man
    Just like I feared, it really was an open ending!
    Sniffle
    But if anything, an open ending is still sometimes better than a rushed one.
    Explaining all of it would take much more chapters and time
    Besides, it suddenly kind of became part of my subconscious to have everything explained in a novel… but that’s not right is it?
    This in comparison feels far more real
    The past doesn’t matter as much as the future
    It was never their obligation to reveal all of those mysteries
    Their life is their own, no need to force them into finding out the world’s hidden secrets right?
    Just let them enjoy themselves on their own

    In all, this was a very enjoyable novel and I thank miss Ruby and Shadow dog for your hard work on this
    bows
    This really was truly fun so thank you very much

  14. Ruby, an endless thankyou for you, from the deep of my heart❤ It’s a really wonderful translation, you have done a very amazing work! Thank you for your hardwork. I hope you won’t stop to take another project. Stay healthy, Ruby, always :’)

    0

  15. Thank you so much for you translations!! I’ve kept with the updates ever since the very first couple chapters and it was always such a treat!

  16. Thanks for translating the story! Left off on chapter 112 and finally caught up, good thing to since this is the last chapter, kinda wish they could have had a bit more, like what went on between Geno and Siren, as well as Oden and Annie marie, and Hestia playing with Leo. But it was still a good story I think.

  17. As much as i love this novel and how good the translation is. I…Man, im disappointed with the ending. Like everything else is so good but
    ahgh
    I want more. At least the proposal would have been nice to see q-q
    Thank you again, so so much.

  18. Thanks so much for finishing this! Wonderful and consistent translations all throughout!❤
    Just like Lakis, we were forced to control our desires and greed for more chapters and be satisfied with the crumbs of intimacy from the characters we love. Or is this just Lakis’ karma for abusing Anne Marie?
    Gotta admit tho, you don’t really remember mediocre confessions and now Lakis of all people will be remembered with my award of the “worst cancelled proposal” from confirmed ships. Getting his wedding ring stolen then turns out it’s a plastic toy. Oof. Poor Lakis even gets denied to try again since the series ended. Btw, “best cancelled proposal” definitely goes to someone I won’t spoil from Secret Organization.

  19. whatttt. i cant believe that was THE ending TT im a lil disappointed ngl. i wished we knew more about yuri’s correlation with bastian’s daughter 😦 that seemed to be important in the story but i guess not. i wish we had a wedding or time jump into the future also TT whyyyy

    anyways thank u miss ruby for ur translations! you make it so pleasing to read and understand. i look forward to reading this next work! ❤

    1. I mean although it’s never outright stated, but since the fragments are made out of living beings who touched the ancient ruins it is most likely that the fragment yuri absorbed was originally Selena, and that’s why she looks like her? (Also possibly Dominic is the one who was involved in her disapperance) I assume that’s also why some mutants have animal characteristics, meaning the fragments they absorbed were made out of the animal whose characteristics they have. My personal theory is, that the bug in Lakis head is also a former human who was turned into a fragment, but for some reason part of his consciousness was transferred to the stone.

  20. Wanna cry. İ was really in love with this novel. Didn’t expect end like this but still like it. Wish we could hear more about geniş,khakis and other boy. Also like you said i surprisingly liked actually heroine as well she was sweet. Our girl was badass and somewhat emotionless but i love her this side as well. Lakis was still kind of villain at the end which is realistic for me. He was the villain after all shouldn’t expect (but i did actually) to change his attitude towards others. Hope we can see those children

  21. Forget to say :THANK YOU A LOT FOR TRANSLATİON. The choice of novel of yours to translate is amazing as usual. İ love Lucia ,i love this one and i also love the one you are currently translating (forget the ..) . Hope you continue novels like them

  22. I enjoyed reading this novel as much as I enjoyed reading Lucia. Thank you so much Miss Ruby for the translation 😊👍

    But I really wish there were more side stories like if Lakis proposal plan succeeded, what happened to Anne Marie and other male leads.. I was also wondering if Kalian and Marie ended up as lovers like in the original novel that Yuri knows.

  23. Where is the wedding??? Or the spicy scenes???? I mean is that all T-T

    Thank you very much for all your hard work. You guys are incredible.

  24. Thank you so much for the taking the time to translate this, I had a lot of fun reading it! Translating can be a very difficult job, but I could tell you put a lot of thought into the translation. I wish you the best for any future projects!

    (Like many, I am also sad we never got to know what happened to there other side characters. Plus, I genuinely enjoy it so much that Anne-Marie is an absolute sweetheart, and that the two of them are besties. So many authors go out of their way to make the “original-Fl” anabsolute terrible person, and it never sits right with me)

  25. Thank you for all of your time and hard work which you put into translating this novel. I really enjoyed your translation ❤️❤️ have a nice day~

  26. Many thanks for the translation. I discovered this novel through an aggregator site and followed it then on your website once I saw your note blush

  27. Not the ending i was expecting but…beggar cant be choosy right?
    Huhuhu
    Im convincing myself that im not disappointed…im not. Really. Just…a bit down.
    Love the beginning. The tension between Lakis and Yuri. I think the author want to make this a long chapter but…maybe because of some unavoidable circumstances, she/he couldnt continue?
    But Lakis and Yuri moment ease my confusion. Love them very much.
    And thank you to Miss Ruby and ShadowDog(?) for the tanslation. Thank you very much. Love you guys!

  28. I felt there were too many things unfinished or left in the air but in general, I’m glad it was a HE and that we could appreciate some Yuri x Lakis’ relationship. It was a pity that the ship Anne-Marie x Odin couldn’t sail :'( This is the first novel I read that left the secondary characters’ end is such an implicit way, I mean, it was indirectly mentioned that Anne-Marie and Tatiana were related and that they were to be reunited again, and that’s it. Anne-Marie and Hestia weren’t mentioned anymore. And Kalian becoming the lord of the East without losing himself in the process and taking responsibility for his father’s action was kind of predictable. I seriously would like it if the ending of Genos and Anne-Marie were much elaborated but indirectly I know what happened to them so I’m not unsatisfied. Thanks for your hard work during this time. I really like the novel and I’m sure keep following your other projects Miss Ruby. Take care ☕

  29. A plastic toy ring! I thought that maybe the ring would turn out to be one of those plastic rings with a candy gem on top.
    Thank you Miss Ruby and Shadowdog for your hard work♡

  30. Thank you SOOOO much for translating this, you’re amazing!!! ❤ ❤ The ending definitely leaves a lot to be desired (No love confession, proposal, OR wedding?!? No permanent lift on the seal that closed off her emotions? No explanation on why Lakis has the effect of returning her emotions? Or wtf the “bug” actually is???? Gah!) But it was a thrilling drama overall, I could barely put it down! Thank you again!

  31. WHAAAAAAT mao rani?
    I have a lot of questions…. The ending is very open? Did the author-nim announce that there’s a part 2 of this?
    Like about Yuri’s past, her real family, the ancient stuffs and a lot of other things.
    I’M SO CURIOUS
    Well I guess I’ll just have to use my imagination

  32. aaaahhhh we finally reached the end. thank you ms ruby for your hardwork!

    I discovered your website through [Forget My Husband, I’ll go make Money] and have been enthusiastically waiting for updates then while waiting i tried to read this. thank goodness I continued reading this because it’s so good!

    I find it unfortunate we haven’t get to see more snippets of their everyday lives but I guess we’re being too greedy, no? Kinda saddens me too that there are some things that are not explained well like what is the truth behind the ruins, how did the 3 original male leads ended and what are they doing/searching for and ofc more of Anne-Marie and Hestia moments. Anyways I enjoyed this novel a lot!! Thank you again Ms Ruby for the translations!

  33. Thank you very much for the translation! It was really well done! I’ll follow you and your translations in your future projects!

  34. Thank you for your efforts in translating this Ruby-sama! I’m really grateful to have found your works ❤️

    That aside, I think this is the most disappointing novel I’ve read. The first half is great, but after that, the plot is dragging and gradually lost my interest. There are also A LOT of issues left unresolved, no closure and whatnots. And even if do have it, there’s no impact like it wasn’t given a depth to allow the readers empathise what the characters think or feel about it, unlike the first half where the character’s action are supported by how they feel towards any problem that arises. Although, I do like the story at first. It’s just that it wasn’t wrapped up nicely. It upsets me that a story with great potential fall in such a sh*tty end.

    Anyway, this gets a 9 mackerel sardines out of 7 kilogram of wood dust.
