Chapter 180 – A Small Part of the Abyss-like Plan

Translator: Makisima

Proofreader: Hieu

“Oh, Epsilon. Haven’t seen you for a long time.”

Hearing her master who turned his head to her, Epsilon raised her head in a trance.

“Your wound has been cured.”

Master used his warm magic to heal the wound on Epsilon’s chest.

“Thank you very much.”

As her wounds were healed, pain gradually disappeared. It was a healing technique that didn’t waste any magic. Epsilon was always impressed whenever she saw it.

Although it took time to recover physical strength and blood, Epsilon finally breathed a sigh of relief as she looked down at her recovered chest.

Just then, Epsilon noticed.

“— Ah.”

The amount of slime padded on her chest was reduced.

When Epsilon was seriously hurt, Slime was somewhat reduced. There’s not enough time for her to replenish it, and in that case, her flat chest was exposed.

Master must have noticed it when he treated her wounds.

Epsilon broke down in a cold sweat.

“Ah, emm… Ah, well.”

What to do now?

Epsilon racked her brain to figure it out, but nothing came to mind.

“Ah! Did you sneak into here to do some investigations?”

Master looked down at her, asking.

There’s her chance!

“Yes, that’s right! I had to disguise myself in order to spy on the cult!”

“I see. You also had your hair cut.”


That’s right, her hair was cut from the fight with Mordred, but that fact is irrelevant. Actually, she had to thank Mordred for giving her a way out of this situation.

“Yes, yes! Disguise!”

“Oh, Epsilon did a really good job.”

“No, no. You flattered me!!”

She was safe now!

And more importantly, she was praised by her master.

“There’s always a light at the end of a dark tunnel” – it must refer to the current situation.

Epsilon stood up with a confident smile as always.

“Thank you very much, Shadow-sama.”

Then she saluted gracefully.

“You must have noticed that I was in danger and came to save me. I’m really grateful for master’s deep insight and amazing magic.”

“Emm? Well, that’s right. Epsilon, you look very tired.”

“Yes, it really was a dangerous task. Thanks to Shadow-sama, I survived. I will go back and report to Alpha-sama right now—”



“Are you going to report to Alpha right now?”

“Yes, I’m going to do that.”

“Well, hold off on reporting to her for now. Until the embers died… Well, Epsilon, go with me for the time being.”

“With, with, with Shadow-sama!?”

Epsilon’s face turned beet red.

She didn’t expect that master, who noticed the danger and came to help her, considered her as a partner.

Master liked to act alone, and even Alpha had rarely fought along with master recently.

Epsilon’s heart beat faster with excessive surprises.

“Please, please, please let me go with you! I will work hard!!”

“Please take care of me too.”

“Then, what should we do?”

“Keep a high degree of flexibility and act according to changing circumstances.”

“Yes, sir!”

In other words, master wouldn’t explain his plan at this stage.

Master could always accurately predict the future and make a detailed plan. The plan naturally contains a huge amount of information, impossible for ordinary people to understand.

He banned Epsilon from reporting to Alpha, designated Epsilon to be his partner, and came here — there were underlying reasons for all of these.

Epsilon stared at master with great respect.

“Well, Shadow-sama. I just observed a huge amount of magic outside. Do you know why?”

Thinking the magic also had something with master’s plan, Epsilon asked.

Her master kept silent for a while and stared at Epsilon, as if thinking about whether he should tell her the truth or not.

“Yeah, well then let me explain it.”

Epsilon held her breath and listened.

I might be able to grasp on a small part of the plan. Master must be thinking about why I asked that.

“The magic was released by me.”

“As expected… but why?”

“In order to imitate [Black Rose].”

“— What!?”

[Black Rose] was the core of this civil war.

Epsilon understood it instantly.

She did touch the tip of the iceberg.

She had not yet known the whole plan.

However, if Epsilon’s prediction was right – what a distant future her master had foreseen.

Epsilon was so excited that her heart felt numb.

“Well, that’s it. There’s not much to my story.”

“I will support you with all my heart.”

Epsilon clenched her trembling hand, and her eyes, as clear as spring water, were filled with burning emotions.

Wait- wrong series.

Hemu Posted on3:18 pm - Jun 5, 2019

You know i like this series very much. But at the same time, I kinda hate it too! The author is such a tease for writing a chapter that’s often so short! Thanks for translating the chapter

ventisca Posted on2:20 pm - Jun 5, 2019

lol. Demiurge-level fanaticism, I don’t know whether I should pity them or not, but Shadow Garden are doing good. The cult is real and I don’t know how their fate crossed over and over (of course it was the plot). It’s hilarious, the story itself, the people around Sid, including the point of view of the Shadow Garden members about him.

Thank you for the fast release.
Last month there were 11 chapters released, and now 2 chapters for this week alone (and this week is not finished yet), so fast.

    Carmeops Posted on11:56 am - Jun 5, 2019

    yeah, remind me of that other novel that i forgot the name of, where the MC is a reincarnated heroine, and her little sister the reincarnation of one of the four heavenly kings, however the MC is convinced that her little sister and her friends have a really bad case of chuunibyou and she tries to help them back into normality

    and from misunderstanding to misunderstanding, she continuously accidentally foil the demon’s plans by not recognizing her own power as the Hero, because she as strong aversion toward the chuuni disease, she constantly rationalize stuff happening around as special effects or something instead of power of hero and demons

      Askun Posted on12:28 pm - Jun 5, 2019

      Tilea Worries??

        Ventisca Posted on4:45 pm - Jun 5, 2019
