“Let me ask this again: Do you really plan on intervening? Judging from the skeletal dragon, the next attack by the black devils will be extremely terrifying. If we screw up, we’ll die too.”

Lesiah stood up and looked at Lilith in all seriousness. “We’re not the same as those titans. We’re outsiders and we have the choice to retreat. There’s no need for us to sacrifice ourselves over a battle that is nearly impossible to win.”

“……”

Lilith fell silent for a moment before answering. “Of course, I plan on intervening. The black devils’ comeback may have a lot to do with me. Although I like pushing my responsibilities, I know the boundary especially when it comes to life and death situations like this.”

“Are you really doing this out of guilt rather than sympathy?” The princess raised an eyebrow at her.

“Of course. You’re welcome to ask the other students in the academy if Lilith is such a kind person.”

“But I feel that you’re not the kind of person who’d feel guilty over your own actions.”

After all, Lilith only promised to make up to her out of embarrassment after doing something like that to her. There wasn’t even a shred of guilt in her.

Lesiah sighed. “You need to know that you don’t owe the titans anything. If it weren’t for your help previously, they wouldn’t have even survived those black skeletons.”

“It’s fine. I’m just going to give it a try. I actually value my life above everything so I’ll run if I can’t win,” Lilith shrugged casually.

Lesiah couldn’t contain her laughter at that comment. “You’re the only person who can talk about running away so righteously.”

“Look who’s talking now.”

Lilith crossed her arms and smirked at the princess. “I was initially planning on releasing you as long as you sign an agreement to never disclose my real identity. But your wisdom convinced me that it’d be a waste if I don’t keep you around to be my personal strategist.”

“…..”

“By the way, are you missing any materials for setting up the traps?”

The sudden change of topic caught Lesiah off guard. She scanned her surroundings then replied, “A lot of them are readily available, but I don’t have many magic scrolls left with me. They are the most important material for the traps.”

“Magic scrolls…”

The corner of Lilith’s mouth twitched before she heartachingly dumped a mountain of magic scrolls out from her storage ring. “I’ve only got a little left…”

“… Little?”

Lesiah stared at the mountain of magic scrolls that was about her height while secretly wondering about Lilith’s understanding of the adjective she just used.

“That would suffice. They will stall even opponents that are on par with the skeletal dragon for a good amount of time.”

“Glad to hear that.”

Lilith looked up at the sky. “It’s getting late, let’s hurry.”

Right after saying that, she took Lesiah’s hand and pulled her into the depths of the forest. Lesiah blushed slightly and tried to shake Lilith’s hand off. However, she soon discovered that her attempt was useless so she gave up.

Even so, she still seethed behind Lilith.

Damn, how dare she take advantage of me again!

……

At this very moment, all the titans were gathered at the vacant lot in front of their village. Everyone was silently listening to Lilith about the cruel reality.

“Do you all understand the current situation now?”
“Yes, my king.”

Titan 12138 hunched even more after listening to Lilith’s explanation. She looked like she had suddenly aged by ten years.

Even Lilith couldn’t help but worry about her.

“Are you alright?”
“I’m fine. We’ll be fine. Such is our fate, we have accepted it long ago.”

The old titan forced herself to smile. “We have nothing to fear as long as we have you by our side, my king.”

“……”

Is that so? Then why is the light in all of your eyes snuffed out? No one is willing to accept that death or extermination of their clan is their destiny. It certainly isn’t something easy to accept.

Lilith understood that well, but there was nothing she could do. She had done all she could. The rest was really up to god. The titans probably knew their odds were close to zero this time.

After getting another chance to live, Lilith valued her life very much.

If this wasn’t a life-threatening situation, she would’ve been very willing to lend these titans a hand as their king.

However, the encounter with the skeletal dragon scout earlier was a grim reminder for her — a reminder that this wasn’t a situation that she could resolve alone.

It was as Lesiah had pointed out: an existence that required the intervention of gods to seal away was definitely not weak.

Not only that, the reason that this world prohibited any trace of saint-level power was to impose a limit on those black devils.

Despair gradually filled the air. The hundreds of titans gathered here instantly fell silent, so much that one could even hear a pin drop.

“Waaaaah…!”

One of the children finally couldn’t stand the depressing atmosphere and broke the silence by wailing.

His parents wanted to reprimand him, but choked back a sob before he could even say anything.

And that alone opened the floodgates.

Even those who fought against the black devils earlier couldn’t help but whimper. Their hopes were dashed. Despair filled them. They were cast out of heaven and into hell. This no doubt gave them the biggest blow.

The sight made Lilith feel a squeeze in her heart. She felt like she was in a trance all of a sudden. This scene gave her a deja vu.

She took a deep breath, then turned to Lesiah who had been silent all this while.

“Can we bring these titans out of the Ancient Ruins?”
“Ohoho, of course not.”

Lilith’s eyes widened at the response as her heart nearly skipped a beat.

The voice that responded to her question wasn’t Lesiah but Shiloah, the strange man.

In a huge but dim room that looked like a church from Lilith’s previous life, there was a quaint dining table placed in the heart of the room.

The candlelight flickered. A strange eagle-headed human statue on the dining table cast a shadow over the table, like a swaying man-eating monster.

The odd-looking beast heads hanging on the wall of the room added a terrifying touch to the atmosphere.

Lilith came back to her senses and found herself sitting at one end of the table. Across from her, was Lesiah seated on the other end of the table. The princess looked just as bewildered as she was.

They were obviously ‘teleported’ away once again.

“Ohoho. Welcome, my dear guests.”

Shiloah stood at the side, dressed in a waiter’s costume. He bowed respectfully with a hand over his chest to his two ‘guests’.

If it weren’t for his horrible appearance, he would make a convincing professional waiter.

“What do you want?” Lilith asked warily.

She tried to get up, only to find that her butt seemed to be glued firmly to the chair. On the other end of the table, Lesiah was glaring daggers at Shiloah.

This strange man before her was the reason why she embarrassed herself and humiliated herself in front of everyone during that ‘kissing’ incident.

“Ohoho, don’t get so worked out, my beautiful Lady Lilith and your royal highness Princess Lesiah. I came with no ill intention this time. I only invited both of you here to apologize for my misconduct earlier.”

“Apologize? Are you kidding me? I don’t believe your sudden change of heart.” Lesiah narrowed her eyes at him in suspicion.

“You guys were seriously trying to kill us just now. And now you strapped us to these chairs. Yet you still dare to claim that you came with no ill intentions?”

“Ohoho. It seems like the both of you have greatly misunderstood me. I really came with not even a shred of hostility this time. If I did, I would have struck when both of you were in a daze just now.”

Shiloah put his empty hands in the air to show that he was harmless.

Lilith and Lesiah exchanged looks with each other, then decided to stay put a little longer to see what the strange man had in store for them.

Shiloah twisted his neck at a very strange angle, then brought out two exquisite porcelain dinner plates out of thin air, complete with silver lids over them.

He performed a spin and skillfully placed the dinner plates in front of his two guests.

“A little something from me, I hope you will like it.”
