It was finally the last stage.

 

Finally. Please. Finally.

 

It took ten years to get here.

 

The tower was too high and humans were too weak.

 

The number of hunters who gave up their lives to get here exceeded seven thousands.

 

[The <Lord of Vile Blood> is going crazy with the strong smell of blood!]

 

[The <King of Waves and Healing>] pats you online.]

 

[The <Emperor of Enticement> sends you enticing support!]

 

All of the guild members died and the only one left was the last survivor and the last S-class hunter, Kim Young. She was the only one.

 

‘If I fall behind here, it would be a useless death. I have to break this again.’

 

I can’t go through that again! I can’t go back! It’s already the 58th time I’ve returned!

 

‘Please go home, Lee Young. Please.’

 

She had memorized the pattern now. She had memorized the attack pattern so much that it came out in her dreams. 

 

Lastly, Lee Young organized the attack pattern on the floor.

 

[The <Monarch of Waves and Healing> expresses regret, saying that you are finally returning to the original world.]

 

“I should go home, too, Sister.”

 

[The <Lord of Vile Blood> is crying.]

 

“We’ve seen each other for 70 years, haven’t we seen each other enough? Stop looking at me. Why are you crying?”

 

 [The <Emperor of Enticement> criticizes you for saying such a thing.]

 

 “No, we’re old now. Let’s go home after the possession. My dog is waiting for me. My Maltese, Cerberus, must be waiting for me anxiously.”

 

It must be. 

 

In fact, Kim Young, an S-class hunter, was possessed by a novel called ‘S-class Hunter Gets Stronger as She Regresses’.

 

At first, she didn’t believe it herself. I’m… I’m an S-class Hunter?

 

On the day she took the civil service exam in Korea, studied for 4 years and 7 months, and finally passed the exam and went out to eat,

 

Lee Young was dead.

 

Because of a drunk driving car.

 

 And she was possessing it. A novel she had read during her four years and seven months of college entrance exam.

 

‘At first, it was fun to be an S-class Hunter and be the munchkin main character.’

 

Even the unbreakable dungeon could break if Lee Young touched it.

 

It was because Lee Young’s ability was ‘regression’. Therefore, she was able to become a munchkin with the knowledge she had learned directly while regressing in the novel.

 

Not only that, she also stole all the Constellations from the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places, and signed a contract herself. 

 

“Then so what? I can’t beat the final boss!’

 

“Status window.”

[This is the status window on page 78. Do you want to see more?]

 

Even with these cheat stats, Lee Young never beat the final boss.

 

Because the black screen and final boss of this novel, the <Master of the Tower>, was too strong.

 

There were no weaknesses and attack patterns, so there was no way to attack.

 

‘Because the writer doesn’t even write the ending, I don’t know how to clear it.’

 

That bully writer! If you’re going to make the story that fun, at least finish it!

 

“Don’t see more. Next, quest window.”

 

[Quest Window]

 

<Last Quest>

 

Clear the last floor of the tower.

 

Clear condition: The demise of the <Master of the Tower>

 

Clear reward: End of the possession. Return to the original world

 

“End of the quest window.”

 

It was the last quest.

 

If she finished this quest, she could go home and live a peaceful life again.

 

There was no need to fight a monster with 100 tentacles and a disaster with 10,000 eyes.

 

She could live a life where all she needed to do was fall asleep while kissing the back of her dog.

 

[The <Monarch of Waves and Healing> points out that the dog will not be aware that it is waiting because you will return to your original time when the possession is over.]

 

“Yes, I’m the one waiting. I’m dying to see my dog.”

 

[The <Emperor of Enticement> tempts you into dreaming the dog over a hundred times more.]

 

“Stop seducing me!”

 

[The <Lord of Vile Blood> suggests that he can be a dog.]

 

“Are you crazy? Really. Aren’t you too old for this, Grandfather?”

 

[The <Lord of Vile Blood> strongly complains that he’s not a grandfather because his body is half-romantic.]

 

“What are you saying? I’m already over 500 years old, by the way. Grandfather is over 5,000 years old.”

 

[The <Monarch of Waves and Healing> strongly agrees.]

 

[The <Emperor of Enticement> giggles and laughs.]

 

[The <Lord of Vile Blood> turns around, telling you to clear it quickly.]

 

“Okay, let’s just clear it. It’s our 58th time trying this stage. I can’t put it off any longer. My eternal rest.”

 

[The <Monarch of Waves and Healing> nods bitterly.]

 

[The <Emperor of Enticement> pouts his lips.]

 

[The <Lord of Vile Blood> sheds tears again.]

 

“Gate open.”

 

[The Tower’s Last Stage, Boss, the <Master of the Tower>. Do you want to open the gate?]

 

“Hurry up and open it.”

 

[Open the gate.]

 

 

***

 

“It’s… done.”

 

Lee Young sighed as she watched the <Master of the Tower> melt down gradually.

 

Is it done really? It didn’t feel too real.

 

[The boss of the last stage, the <Master of the Tower>, will disappear.]

 

[The conditions for clearing <Last Quest> have been met!]

 

However, notification windows that came up one after another gave Lee Young a sense of reality.

 

She had really done it.

 

Lee Young finally did it after her 58th return.

 

After the death of the kind people around her, even though they were just characters in the novel, Lee Young finally did it.

 

 

[No way! No… No way! I… I can’t believe I lost!]

 

“You sound like a third-rate boss. Just die quickly. I have to go see my dog.”

 

 

[How can I… You’ve gotta be kidding me! My grand plan hasn’t been completed yet!]

 

“What’s the grand plan? If you’re going to talk about conquering the world, I am not going to let you die beautifully.”

 

[….]

 

“That’s all?”

 

The writer wasn’t very creative. Lee Young clicker her tongue.

 

 

[I’ll get back at you, human.]

 

“Get your revenge on the writer, not me.”

 

 

[You have broken my circle, and I will break your strongest circle.]

 

What is it, a curse?

 

At the curse of the <Master of the Tower> staring at Lee Young with his eyes raised viciously, she felt uneasy for no reason.

 

In the end, Lee Young was offended, so she pulled out her sword and cut down the <Master of the Tower> one more time.

 

“If you’re going to die, hurry up and die. What curse are you talking about? Do you know how many people you actually killed? My colleagues really died a few times because of you!”

 

[In your… Next life, my circle…This will… be achieved. You’ll be there forever.]

 

Next life? It was the most creepy word for Lee Young.

 

Lee Young trampled the last remains of the <Master of the Tower> with her feet. He really sucks to the end.

 

[The <Monarch of Waves and Healing> strongly criticizes the <Master of the Tower>.]

 

[The <Emperor of Enticement> curses the <Master of the Tower> with words that he shouldn’t say.]

 

[The <Lord of Vile Blood> is going crazy!]

 

“That’s enough. I just have to complete the quest. I still win even if I get cursed.”

 

[The <Monarch of Waves and Healing> praises your wisdom.]

 

“Quest window! Hurry up and give me the reward!”

 

 

[Ring!]

 

[<System> Emergency Notice// The system has an error and is updating urgently. We deeply appreciate your patience.]

 

 

What? She’d never seen this before. Her heart was getting colder.

 

Lee Young sat down with an ominous feeling and turned on all the windows.

 

“Status window!”

 

[Currently, <Status Window> is not available.]

 

“Q-Quest window!”

 

[Currently, <Quest Window> is not available.]

 

“Then what about the reward? You’re giving me the reward, right?”

 

[The system is currently updating. Please wait a moment. Time to complete the update (00:03:00)]

 

[Loading…]

 

“What nonsense is this!? Give me the reward right now! Send me back!”

 

[Today’s Tip. <S-class Hunter Gets Stronger as She Regresses> is very fun.]

 

[Today’s TIP. The next work of <diddkcl>, the author of <S-class Hunter Gets Stronger as She Regresses> has come out. Why don’t you go and enjoy it now?]

 

[Loading…]

 

 

“Damn the system. Don’t pretend to tip only at times like this.”

 

[Today’s TIP. The title of <diddkcl>’s next work is <<What if an S-class Hunter Becomes a Villainess?>>. Don’t you think it’ll be fun?]

 

 

“What’s with the cheap title? Next work? Huh?”

 

[System update complete!]

 

“Yes. I’ll forgive you for everything you’ve done wrong, so please send me back.”

 

[Checking the quest performance…]

 

[We’ve checked your quest achievements! Congratulations! You have completed the <Last Quest> perfectly! We will give you a reward!]

 

 

At that moment Lee Young patted her chest in relief. Yeah. This was how it worked. Still, these guys had good business ethics.

 

[The compensation changes due to a system error…]

 

“What?”

 

[Congratulations! A reward has been given for the quest!]

 

<Last Quest> Clear!

 

Previous clear reward: End of possession. Return to the original world

 

Changed clear rewards: End of possession. Re-imagine the main character of another novel

 

 

 

“What do you mean by ‘re-imagine’?”

 

 

[System Notification// Sorry, <Kim Young>.  Due to an error in the current system, it will be difficult to pay the compensation we promised.

 

Instead, you will be given a better reward! ^^]

 

Do you think just adding a smile at the end wouls make it okay?

 

Lee Young got goosebumps at the laughter emoticon of the system that she saw for the first time.

 

[System Notification // You will be the main character in < diddkcl>’s next work <<What if an S-class Hunter Becomes a Villainess?>>

 

This novel is also interesting, so you’ll be satisfied for sure.]

 

“Call the manager.”

 

[System Notification// Then, please enjoy <<What if an S-class Hunter Becomes a Villainess?>>! ^^]

 

“Call the writer! How could this be!?”

 

[Loading…]

 

[System Notification// <<What if an S-class Hunter Becomes a Villainess?>> is starting.]
