In the empty void, all she could see was darkness.
It was at that very moment, a boundless mirror appeared at the bottom of the darkness.
Even without light, Lilith could clearly see the mirror. Perhaps she wasn’t even using her ‘sight’ to perceive this existence.

As soon as she ‘saw’ the mirror, she saw her own reflection in it too.

Blonde hair and golden eyes. A delicate doll-like face. A loli figure of less than 1.3 meters tall. This was undoubtedly her original appearance.

It seemed like the soul looked exactly the same as its physical body.

Lilith looked around, but saw no one else around.
There was no doubt that the voice came from within the mirror.
However, there was only her own reflection in the mirror.

“Hey, where are you looking at?” The ‘Lilith’ in the mirror suddenly asked.
“Who are you?” Lilith was shocked as she looked at her own ‘reflection’ that was moving on its own in alarm.
“Who am I?” The ‘Lilith’ in the mirror smiled mysteriously. “Am I not you?”
“Me?”

What the heck?
How did another me come into existence?
Could it be that…

“Did I finally crack from the pressure of failing to obtain a stronger ‘power’?”

“No, you didn’t. Since I said I am you, that means I know everything about you. I even know where exactly you hid your study materials in your previous life, so please stop making a fool out of yourself by cracking such a lame joke.” The ‘Lilith’ in the mirror suddenly pressed herself up against the mirror, causing ripples on the surface. The smile on her face grew even stranger.

“Aren’t you more curious about the reason you are here?”
“Isn’t it because I’m dead?”
“Haha, how could that body die so easily? Even if a god personally descends, obliterating that body will still be an extremely difficult feat, let alone a false divine power that didn’t carry the laws of the gods.”
“You mean I’m not dead yet?”
“Of course.”
“So there’s no way for me to reincarnate?”
“Of course.”

Lilith suddenly hugged her head and squatted down in agony.

“Does that mean that I have to bear the tragic fate of going against the god while knowing that I’ll lose again just because of the mean things I’ve said in the past? Not only that, I still have to encounter all kinds of incompetent teammates. Come to think of it, I’ll be going up against god with just a bunch of incompetent teammates. Oh god, just let me die!”

The ‘Lilith’ in the mirror squatted down too, expressionlessly. She looked at Lilith who appeared to be unwilling yet was smiling faintly. “Don’t worry, you won’t have incompetent teammates.”

“Really?”

“Of course.” The Lilith in the mirror suddenly smiled cruelly, “Because you won’t be having any teammates in the future… You’ll only be facing an endless stream of enemies.”

“Who are you anyway?” Lilith stood up and asked seriously.

“I told you already, I’m you.”

Lilith was silent, but roamed her eyes over herself in the mirror from top to toe countless times.

No matter how she looked at it, the person in the mirror was an exact replica of herself.

Her height, body size, the details to the even position of the most inconspicuous mole was exactly the same. It was really her own reflection in the mirror. Yet there was unprecedented cruelty and violence in the smile of her reflection in the mirror.

She looked like a docile sheep compared to the time when her bloodline was activated. Apart from cruelty and violence, Lilith also saw a trace of… loneliness.

“Where is this place?”

“Finally a serious question.” The Lilith in the mirror pointed to the sky, “You should know where this is.”

Above her head, the pale golden sun was constantly emitting warm light. From that little sun, Lilith sensed a familiar aura.

“Could it be…”

“That’s right. You are in your body.” The person in the mirror stared into Lilith’s eyes, “And I am the other you.”

Another me? Or is she the original owner of this body, the real dragon princess?

But that Radiant B̲i̲t̲c̲h̲ claimed that I was the soul that was stripped out of her body twenty years ago. The ancestor couldn’t have possibly recognized the wrong person.

There’s no way he would allow a stranger to be his successor.

Countless questions piled up in Lilith’s heart, but she didn’t have the time to ask.

The Lilith in the mirror suddenly looked up, “It seems like we don’t have much time to talk.”

The pale golden sun, or to be more exact, the ancestor’s blood above her head shone brighter as it drew closer to her.

The Lilith in the mirror raised her hand and a ball of black flame suddenly appeared in her hand.

“I’ll lend you this for now.”

The black flame easily melted a hole in the mirror that was just wide enough for an arm to pass through. The Lilith in the mirror stuck her arm through and pushed the black flame into Lilith’s body.

“Just rely on your instincts… to use it. After all, this thing is considered yours too.”

Lilith’s consciousness suddenly grew blurry.
Just when Lilith’s consciousness was about to completely disappear…
A voice suddenly rang in her ears.

The person in the mirror looked at Lilith with a smile, but her lips weren’t moving and were therefore not producing any sound.

Even so, Lilith still clearly heard the question that could subvert all her cognition.

“Are you really………?”
