e to becoming omnipotent, but no one was fully like that.
“That means that there are no other answers if even the Spirit King cannot do it.”
“You mean to say that woman holds the fate of the world?”
“We haven’t made the decision with the Sun God yet, so I thought that the world would be in danger.”
The warriors mumbled with grim expressions, and Sarah also looked like she just realized how serious the situation was.
“Is there any other option?”
Sarah asked Ash, but Ash didn’t seem to have an answer.
If there was another way, they would have done it.
Then Hasyath asked,
“What is the cause?”
It was the question he had asked earlier, but Hiyan didn’t answer it then.
She said she would answer it only in everyone’s presence.
“I don’t think such a huge tree will wither like this overnight.”
According to our findings…”
Hiyan began to explain why the World Tree had begun to dry up.
“… pest? You are saying that such a huge tree is dying because of that?”
Hasyath doubted it.
How many pests must there be to kill a tree as huge as the World Tree?
Even if they were monstrous pests, it would be impossible.
Also, if a pest alone was enough to kill the World Tree, it would have happened a long time ago.
“It is because they have dug too deep into the tree.”
“… and the number of pests?”
If it was enough to destroy the tree and kill it, there couldn’t be just one or two of them.
And the words that came out of Hiyan’s mouth shocked Hasyath.
A single pest is killing the World Tree.”
“What nonsense is…”
How could one single pest destroy a huge tree?
“There is only one, but it is not a normal pest.
I just used that word to describe it because there is no better word for it than a pest.”
This made Hasyath go silent.
“The monster’s name is Nidhog.
The one that gnawed on the World Tree and was sealed away by the first manager a long time ago has resurrected.”
A long time ago.
The World Tree existed alone, unprotected by anyone.
It focused on planting countless seeds to transform the world from a wasteland into a green one.
Even the Nature Gods acknowledged the presence of the World Tree and called it an immovable God.
It was a tree that spread its benefits around the world.
However, since it was such a perfect tree, pests were attracted to it.
The monster called ‘Nidhog.’
The monster that looked like a dragon escaped the eyes of the Gods and began to eat the World Tree.
It was an insignificant monster, so the Gods didn’t notice it.
Nidhog continuously gnawed the tree, and the nutrients in the tree became Nidhog’s strength.
Then one day, an eagle living on top of the World Tree noticed something abnormal.
After learning that it was Nidhog, the eagle asked the Gods to punish the pest.
And so the Gods descended to kill him, but the monster that sucked away the essence of the tree was not as weak as before.
Numerous Nature Gods fell before the power of Nidhog, and the World Tree began to die rapidly.
“And our ancestors came.”
The first elf and a newly born Nature God.
Odin defeated Nidhog and sealed him into another dimension with the help of the World Tree.
The dimension was sealed to make sure he wouldn’t come out.
He built a kingdom around the World Tree and gave birth to numerous nature Gods.
That place was Asgard.
However, Odin and Thor were defeated by Ra, and Asgard was wiped out.
“And the dimension that had imprisoned Nidhog must have weakened, and he reappeared in this world.”
More than 70,000 years have passed since Odin’s death.
The seal he created weakened, and the High Elves, who didn’t know about it, didn’t predict this would happen.
“How did you know?”
“The High Elves are a race that preserves everything.
And we have always recorded history.
It was difficult to find out about it, but we eventually did.”
“Right… but why did you say there is no solution? Isn’t it enough to kill the monster called Nidhog?”
As Hasyath asked, the reason why the World Tree was dying was because of Nidhog.
No matter how strong the monster was, if the Black Tower stepped in, it would die in an instant.
But Hiyan shook her head.
“As I said, it can be subdued, but killing it isn’t possible.”
“Is it already too late?”
“Whether we catch it early or late, the death of the World Tree is already unstoppable.
Only the Water Spirit King has the potential.”
To be honest, the situation wouldn’t have gotten worse if they had responded sooner.
But Nidhog was smart, and even when the seal was lifted, it didn’t get excited and act out.
It secretly dug into the World Tree.
By the time the elves figured it out, it was already too late.
“We need to kill it, one way or another.”
Anyway, Nidhog was still inside the World Tree.
Regardless of whether they might perish or fail, any monster that would stand in their way should be dealt with before it becomes stronger.
“Call the Black Tower for help.
Considering that the opponent is also a God, it will be difficult to defeat it with our own strength.”
You don’t have to do that.”
She walked to the World Tree and gently spread her hands.
“Because I am here.”
The air began to tremble, and a tremendous force swirled around her.
Everyone had to cover their faces with their hands to protect themselves from the strong wind.
Rebecca’s hair transformed into water with blue light shining from her eyes.
[Come out now, Elquines!]
She was a High Elf who has lived for more than 20,000 years and was a contract holder with the Spirit Kings of Fire and Earth.
But the power that Rebecca released far exceeded hers.
A human girl who was just 19 years old.
Her power connected to the spirit world.
A huge amount of water gathered in the sky, and it swirled like it wanted to tear the world apart.
‘She is summoning the Water Spirit King from the spirit world in an almost perfect state?!’
Rebecca’s voice which had calmed down said,
[Please kill that bug]
The voice resounded everywhere, and the large amount of water that filled the sky was compressed to the size of a hand, and then shot straight toward the World Tree.
The sound of arrows flying.
The streams of water penetrated the World Tree and disappeared.
A loud scream was heard from inside.
