EER Prologue – Part 2

<~ Previous Chapter | TOC | Next Chapter ~>


 ­ Earth Alone

A beautiful woman wearing white feather wings appeared.

(Oh, so it is here!) Her first words were rude.

‘Wh..who are you?

Yoo Il Han had to cover himself with blankets for he practised nudity as a sleeping habit. The woman stared at his folly grotesquely and then shifted her expressions.

(Hm. You can call me how you see me as.)

‘A home invader?’

(I am God’s messanger, an angel.)

She stared at Yoo Il Han and spoke each word stressfully to disclose her identity.

Since she emerged without any signs, Yoo Il Han had already figured out her paranormal nature,  so he accepted the disclosure with little surprise. Too many strange things had happened already to be astonished again.

But he was being unreasonably indifferent to reality. Her next words proved so.

(Since I am running out of time,, I will be straightforward. You have been left behind.)

‘….Left behind…?’

Yoo Il Han’s complexion showed confusion. Being left behind had always been intricately linked to his life. He was left behind by everyone in the primary school excursion, the middle school camping trip, the high school field trip and even in the university MT…

(God has recognised the arrival of ‘disaster’ on Earth, which has led to all humans being sent to numerous different worlds in case of this happening. Somehow, only you have been excluded.  

No way, being left behind on a scale of entire humanity! Consciousness dwindled. Holding onto his fading mind, Yoo Il Han questioned the angel.

‘What is the disaster’

(Earth’s experience gauge has been filled, so it is levelling up to the next stage.

He was full of desire to tackle her like when he was forced to replace Dad in a Sunday league team, but he managed to subside it. Then he asked.

‘What happens when it levels up?’

(Energy of a higher level than that of Earth’s is revealed. It is called mana. Also, the archival records initiate contact with Earth, hence humans are permitted read a part of the records. This is termed status.)

‘Good concise explanation’

(I’m good, aren’t I?)

The angel and her huge breasts gloated at his praises. Yoo Il Han promptly continued his questions.

‘Why is there a need to send humanity to different worlds? In fantasy novels, it happens all of sudden for no apparant reason…’

(Mana being divulged to Earth signifies the obligation to face mana-evolved animals, so-called monsters.)

He expected it as soon as ‘mana’ was mentioned.

(Because animals adapt to mana better than humans, humanity will suffer a disaster and will be driven to extinction without intervention. There are dozens of doomed worlds already, therefore God has decided to move Earth’s humanity to safe environments where they could adapt to mana.)

‘Do you mean that my humanity has been transported to mana-adjusted human worlds?’

(Of course. Humans of other worlds will train them for a supply of a certain amount of ‘status’. Though there will be humans without capacity to do so, God cannot save them all.’ )

Indeed, it was obvious. Yoo Il Han thought he had heard enough, but he still had some doubts.

‘Can we not kill monsters with guns?Artilleries?’

(Nuclear weapons cannot slay them)

‘So there really is necessity to strengthen humanity.’

(Naturally. God is great and merciful)

The angel again gloated about in an arrogant expression and with her huge breasts pointing outwards.  Seizing the opportunity, Yoo Il Han made the most despairing face possible and asked.

‘What about me?’

(…) The angel had no words to say

‘What about me?

As Yoo Il Han pursued her answer, she turned her head a little and answered in a slightly lower voice.

(There was a mistake)

‘Correct it please.’

(As all tickets have been booked out, you cannot go to other worlds.)

‘Not even standing rooms?’

(No)

‘What kind of shitty God is this?’

Finally, Yoo Il Han exploded. The angel, pitying the man, muttered as if to pacify him.

(There is a rejector bonus!)

‘I don’t need it! Send me too!’

(The instant the humanity was forced out, Earth’s time has stopped. Until they return, you are not affected by the effects of time. In other words, you don’t age. Though this includes all Earth’s humans too…’

‘Send me too!’

(Moreover, God, who has sympathised with your lone rejection, has gifted you with status bonuses when the disaster occurs. Amazing ain’t it?)

Details about status bonuses appeased Yoo Il Han’s tandrum somewhat.  Yoo Il Han lifted his head, faced the angel and enquired.

‘How about mana? I need to learn how to use it as well.’

‘Till the upheaval occurs, it is not possible.’

‘Ah, send me too! Send me too!’

(Nope)

His racquets resumed, then Yoo Il Han firmly shook his head side to side. It was not going to happen. For God’s sake, he was GOD!

(God has adjusted humanity’s adaption period to be 10 years. Be cheerful and wait until then. I will supply meals.)

‘…I grow famished although time does not pass?’

(Your cells function, but they do not age.)

‘That is a bit contradictory from time coming to a halt.’

(Since you cannot train adapting to mana, should you not train your phisicality in the very least? Think optimistically: other humans adapt to mana at the expense of their physical enhancements resetting as soon as they return )

Yoo Il Han sighed and leered into her eyes. Was that really an encouragement? These useless assholes were responsible for his mess in the first place, now they were pretending to be charitable through some grand, superficial language. If this ‘status bonus’ was not noteworthy, I am going to lose my temper, Yoo Il Han thought.

‘Hoooo…’

Ten years. At last he could face reality. Ten years? I can live with that, surely. While his innate optimism persuaded himself, Yoo Il Han spat out his last question.

‘Why was I excluded. Why me?’

(Your name was not discoverable by God, who was recording the list of humanity to be sent. He was astounded by your concealment.)

‘…..’

And so, Yoo Il Han’s Earth life alone had begun.

  1. Thanks for the chap.

    Poor guys, 10 year alone and only practising his body…..

    Be patient MC, and remember, 100 km, 100 push up, 100 sit up and 100 squats everyday! Without rest!

    1. Author

      LOOL yeh I’m super excited about this 10 year long training arc. Training Arcs are always good and i love how this novel is skipping everything and just going straight into that training:P ALso cheers for reading man:)

    2. You mean 10 km don’t you.
      And also, no AC in the summer, nor heaters in the winter!

    3. His right arm shall have unparalleled strength.

  2. What a shitty god! Cannot even notice his hiding skills.

    1. Author

      IKR I’m hoping the MC becomes strong enough or meets the god and beats him up or something. Would be super satisfying. Cheers for reading btw:) much appreciation <3

    2. He must be one of my descendants…

      1. Wooaaah… Since when you’re here? o.0

    3. The ultimate ninja! Not even god can notice him

  3. LOL
    Poor mc xD
    Alone for 10 years…. fending off animals, training and talking alone (and maybe angels)…. his cloud steps must be recognized!
    Thanks for the translation!

    1. Author

      Im not sure if there are animals yet as time is frozen… maybe im wrong well see in the next chapter. Cheers for reading:)

      1. The cells function but does not deterioate (the cause of aging) so i believe he will meet animals

        1. Author

          eh who knows hopefully my TLers will bloody speed up…hopefully… so we can find out more

  4. Shouldn’t he be training those hiding skills?
    I mean he’d be the ultimate thief/assassin (no hawk vision though until after the disaster)/ninja (though the different jutsus can only be learned after the disaster starts).

    1. Author

      Yeh would be funny if he first opens his status or something and he has a passive called Hide Presence at the max level or god level or something:P ANyway cheers fors reading:)

  5. Thanks for the chapter, this is pretty interesting so far. Pity some of those other worlds though, considering human history and our tendency to destroy everything around us lol…

    1. Author

      No worries and cheers for reading. Yeh im kinda hoping maybe eventually he’ll check out those other worlds or sth. So many possibilities

  6. Thanks for the chapter

  7. Poor MC, I wonder if his mom is worried about him… or maybe she thinks he was safely transferred????

    Thanks so much for all your hard work, looking forward to reading more~~~~

  11. MC : why me ???

    Angel : Because you are the MC !!!!!!

    Thanks For The Chapter 😀

  12. his name not been found ? there is a possibility maybe he is not human , like half human half demon / devil /god/angel/ etc. a human with blood of demon / devil /god/angel/ etc

    thx for the chapter ^^ i can’t wait to read all the chapters Ioi ahahaha 😀

  13. Is this a joke? Nuclear weapons can’t kill monsters, but a slight boost to training his physical stats while he’s placed in isolation for 10 years is supposed to be good compensation? He doesn’t ask for any specifics on how strong he’ll be or why his no-mana punches will be more effective than nukes? He doesn’t complain that God couldn’t even be bothered to come apologise in person for royally fucking up? He doesn’t ask for a better explanation than “all tickets have been sold” as to why GOD HIMSELF cannot send him to another world now he has been located? He didn’t even ask why the cars crashed and exploded if time has stopped?! Why are the water and gas working?!

    I don’t normally let myself drop a story before reading 5 chapters, but this is just unreadable. The author clearly didn’t put any effort into the premise or the MC, I can’t scrape together even a single atom of hope that it improves later on. Doesn’t matter how amazing and luxurious you build your skyscraper, if the foundation is useless then it ain’t gonna stand.

    1. This is just a prologue dude, calm your tits.

      1. A prologue is arguably the most important part of the story. It is how readers are brought into the world, how everything begins. If the prologue is done poorly, the whole novel will suffer for it. If the prologue is done well, even a mediocre novel can attract a lot of people.

        Also, my problems with this are not with the prologue especially, but the core setting and characters of the novel. It doesn’t make any sense whatsoever – just read my first point about his punches, which is literally the entire concept of this story but is complete bullshit.

  14. If even god had problems with his concealmente habilities, wouldn’t he be able to evade death itself?

  15. (I am God’s messanger, an angel.)

    Lol. Messanger… Should be (messenger)

    ‘What is the disaster’ Missing a ?

    Should be ‘What is the disaster?’

    (Since you cannot train adapting to mana, should you not train your phisicality in the very least?

    Should be physicality

  16. i actually felt pissed aswell lol you cant just leave someone wth hahaha

  17. if his concealment can even fool a god then isn’t OP as hell already?

  18. >Earth’s experience gauge has been filled, so it is levelling up
    …Now THAT I know I’ve never seen before…

  19. This chapter has fixed many of the problems experienced in the first! The constant switching of POV has lessened significantly and the time confusion has been cleared up.

    While I say the confusion is gone, I can’t agree with the explanation. The ‘stopping of time’ as described in this chapter wouldn’t stop clocks from working. If it was the general time stop, the clocks, as well as everything else, would be frozen. Our time stop is different so it isn’t that time has stopped, but rather that things have stopped ageing. So, while I understand the Author’s stance, I don’t believe it to be the correct course.

    Other than that, one more note. The MC “Leers” into the angel’s eyes at one point, this word choice is a bit off. Leer has a negative/perverted connotation which didn’t match the scene. Glared would be a much better choice.

    Thanks for your hard work and I apologize for being a critic. I also appologize for taking my criticism too far and complaining about small stuff.

    -Mundi

  20. This God is probably someone like Hong Meng? P.S. the creator of the Universe in Coiling Dragon (novel by IET).
    Hong Meng was the guy who casually thru his Divine Tea on Earth to cause a disaster to hone the inhabitants T.T at the end of Stellar Transformations.

    Thanks for the chapter.

  21. Hahaha, this is too funny. Thanks for this chapter!

  22. Does god use the internet? Is this how he found out everyone’s name and the reason why he couldn’t find the MC?! Lmao
