"Hyunjun-ah, how are you today?"


Sojin, who entered the hospital room with a cold temperature, cautiously entered the room with a knock, asked, but Hyunjun, who was lying on the bed, did not answer.


The smile on Sojin's lips turned sadly.


"I am looking elsewhere today."


From that day on, it's always the same.


Levian said that in order to take care of Hyun-jun's mind, it's good to stimulate his memory as often as possible, even if it's small.


So Sojin visited Hyunjun every day and talked to him. But his reaction was always the same.


He was just staring at another place with empty eyes. So it hurt even more. Today, Sojin stayed by my side for over 3 hours and continued to talk, but Hyunjun didn't even give me an answer, let alone an answer.


"I will come again tomorrow."


Will I get an answer tomorrow? So-jin left Hyun-jun and left the hospital with a small expectation and fear that she would be talking alone again.


As soon as I stepped out of the hallway, I felt a familiar presence. When he lifted his head, which had been bowing helplessly, there was Levian in front of him.


"How are you?"


"What do you think?"


Sojin's voice was cold. It wasn't that she didn't understand her feelings, so Levian couldn't add any words.


"Time will tell."


Can time really fix it?


As much as Hyun-jun trusted Levin, So-jin also believed in his abilities, but this time, he couldn't be sure easily.


"How long will it take?"


"It won't take long."


There was no strength in Sojin's voice. Levian wasn't sure about her words, but said with strong confidence to reassure her. However, Sojin's expression was still dark, so it didn't seem to have much effect.

dream.


I dream every night When I wake up in the morning, the memories of the dream are scattered like a mirage, but one thing is clear.


"It's not a nightmare… … ."


When I opened my eyes, the first emotion I felt was not the peculiar sense of discomfort when I had a nightmare. To put it bluntly, it was close to a vague longing.


"I don't remember… … ."


When you reach out to grab the fragments of the memory, it scatters like a mist.


I have the same dream every day, but when I wake up in the morning, it doesn't come to mind.


Each day passed in the midst of frustration. And how much time has passed? I don't know how many days have passed.


As usual, I fell asleep and the moment I woke up, I was in an unfamiliar space.


"Here… … ."


Hyunjun frowned. This is the 'Hall of the Past Life'. It was a more familiar place for Hyun-jun than any other place, but after 'Forgetting', it became an unfamiliar space.


"Let's go for a walk… … ."


As if it were a habit, she naturally walked away talking to herself. There were many rooms in the hall of previous lives, which felt like it had been a long time coming.


There were more rooms unlocked than ever before. Of course, Hyun-jun didn't even remember that.


Hyeonjun's footsteps, who had been busy walking, stopped in front of a certain door.


"The righteous shield… … ?"


It was a name that seemed unfamiliar, yet somehow familiar. As soon as he grabbed the doorknob without realizing it as a habit, he instinctively opened the door.


From then on, it was a breeze. When he woke up, he was walking deep inside without realizing it.


how far did you walk? The lights were turned on and the training center with a medieval atmosphere appeared. In the center stood a man with a shield and a spear.


There was a return of oblivion, but Hyun-jun knew who he was at once.


"Carthage… … ."


Unknowingly, he uttered his name.


"Nice to meet you, Hyeonjun Kang."


The man who was showing the side turned towards Hyun-jun. He opened his mouth with a smirk at what made him so happy.


"It's nice to meet you again, Kang Hyun-jun. My name is Carthage."


He raised the window with a calm expression. His straight gaze turned to Hyun-jun, and there was a faint smile on his lips.


He was clearly aiming at the spear, but Hyun-jun felt welcome as if he was welcoming a close friend.


"Hyeonjun Kang, this is your previous life. From now on, until your memories come back, don't beat me hard."


Carthage said with a smirk.


And a cruel class called water lily began.


"Heh heh, heh heh."


"Do you remember now?"


As I was breathing heavily, the man who introduced himself as Carthage asked. Hyunjun shook his head hard. I don't know how many times I've already been stabbed by a spear. It felt as if pain remained all over my body.


"is it… … . Are you still?"


Carthage muttered to herself. It may sound like an insensitive voice, but it was full of worries.


Hyunjun couldn't understand. Who is the author in front of you, and why is he so desperate? Thought over and over, there was no answer, and the attack started again.


"Wow!"


Watching Hyun-jun naturally move his shield to receive Carthage's attack even as the screams erupted, Carthage stepped back with a satisfied smile.


"Look, Hyun-Jun Kang! Your body remembers our time!"


Carthage cried. Hyunjun couldn't easily believe those words. But still, his body instinctively found a hole in Carthage, wielding a sword, and blocking the spear that stabbed at his neck with a shield.


"Remember! Hyun-Jun Kang! Do not forget!"


"Cuckoo!"


Carthage's spear pierced his abdomen. Hyunjun screamed as he spilled red blood.


"You have always won! You can win this time too! Do not fall into oblivion!"


Carthage withdrew while recovering the spear, and Hyun-jun staggered, wiping the blood stained from the corners of his mouth.


As the recovery procedure of the previous life's chamber worked, the penetrating wound in the abdomen was healed.


"Remember!"


Carthage narrowed the distance again and swung the spear. And being pierced by a spear would have killed him thousands of times again, if it wasn't for his previous life, he would have lost his life thousands of times.


How much time has passed? It was a space where time did not pass, but it felt like at least several years had passed.


At some point, Hyun-jun's expression as he received the Carthaginian spear began to change.


Then, instead of simply defending, they started counterattacking.


And the counterattack gradually became anomalous, reaching a point where even Carthage could not stop it.


Whoops!


Hyeonjun's sword pierced Carthage's chest.


"Is it finally time?"


It was pierced through his chest, but his voice was filled with joy instead of pain.


"You have now regained your memory, Hyeonjun Kang."


"Nine years or so?"


"If it wasn't here, 10 years would have passed."


Hyunjun nodded at Carthage's words. At the same time, his vision darkened.


* * *


When I woke up, I was in a hospital room.


"Isn't it a mobile fortress? … ."


I looked out the window and saw the desert. I couldn't tell where this place was from just the scenery outside, but it was clear that it wasn't Earth. Because the landscape was too foreign to be called Earth.


He shook his head a couple of times to calm himself. To wake up, he grabbed the bottle of water next to him and drank it gully.


I felt like I was completely awake as the cold water ran down my throat. Suddenly, a sign was felt outside.


Hyunjun turned his head, and then the door where his eyes met slowly opened.


"Excuse me."


It was Sojin who cautiously entered the room with a quiet voice. She looked very skinny, probably because she had suffered a lot during that time.


Even though I had the strength to come to visit him today, I was still drenched in indifference and uncertainty, and a feeling of hopelessness lurked in the dark circles.


It seemed that Sojin was trying not to show it, but that deep sense of despair was difficult for a 20-something to bear, so it had to show on her face even a little.


At first, she pretended to have lost her memory and tried to tease her, but when she saw her struggling, that childish thought quickly disappeared.


"Hyunjun-ah, how are you today?"


"I think it's fine. sister."


"Yeah, today… … . Wait, what did you just say?"


Sojin doubted her ears. This is because, since Hyun-jun lost his memory, he has never used the title of 'sister' when looking at her.


"I called her sister."


"you… … ."


He approached Sojin, who was still in tears, and hugged her without a word.


That day, Sojin cried. I cried very sadly. She even thought that she might lose the Hyun-jun she knew forever.


But today, because I suddenly found a loved one, I burst into tears, unable to overcome the waves of emotion.


So-jin's hand holding Hyun-jun tightly was like a promise that she would never send her to another place again.


Sojin did not want to leave Hyunjun for a long time. In the end, she fainted, unable to overcome the torrent of emotions, before she was able to leave her on the bed and leave the hallway.


"You are back."


Levian, who was leaning in the hallway, spoke in a calm voice. Hyunjoon looked at him and smiled.


"You look very tired?"


"It is because the master is absent. Sir Taemin Kim helped, but I had too much work to do."


Levin shook his head.


"Let's go to the command tower first."


There was no need to use warp magic. On the way to the command tower, I could hear from Levien the story of the invasion commander, Copenhagen, after the loss of his life.


"After Copenhagen died, most of the forces of the Invasion Command were disbanded."


it has no choice but to At first, the command system of the Invasion Command was concentrated in Copenhagen, and his strong authority governed the troops.


"But there are also troops that have not been disbanded, and we are subjugating them as 'remnants'."


"How big is the remnant?"


"Not many. In addition, the subjugation itself is progressing quickly because the dimension alliance is cooperating. For about three months, more than half of the remnants were subjugated, and now they are resting in the rear for a while, replacing the warfare units of the Dimensional Alliance."


"How long will it take?"


At Hyeon-jun's question, Levin grinned.


"Since the master has joined, I wonder if it will proceed a little faster."


Levin said. Hyunjun shook his head with a short sigh.


"Do you want to torture me like that? Did I just wake up?"


"There has been a lot of work. The master must also work."


"It really just takes a breather."


As I shook my head, as soon as I entered the command tower, I naturally approached the control group and stood up.


"The Combined Fleet Commander has returned! From now on, I will rejoin the remnant subjugation front!"


Levin exclaimed loudly.


"how long will it take?"


"The lord has joined, but it will take a month."


"You mean you have to wander the plane for a month."


There was no answer. Instead, I heard Levian grunt and laugh.


"Yeah, it's only been a month."


Hyun-jun raised the power of the Mobile Fortress while letting out a murmur mixed with complaints. Exactly one month after that, they were able to return to the Earth they had longed for.


But the story is not over.
