I'm Really Not the Demon God's Lackey Chapter 81: Is That The God You Were Talking About?

As Lin Jie came into contact with the cold sword hilt, fragmented images of Candela’s life hit him.

His birth, adolescence, youth... a great and magnificent king gradually emerging.

A glorious kingdom, spectacular constructs, beautiful elves clad in white clothes, massive sacred trees, majestic griffins, the respect and adoration of his people, and then fires raging and the endless darkness.

Perhaps because Candela didn't want to reveal the details of him personally destroying his kingdom or due to having already lost his sanity then, the scenes that followed were very fuzzy.

Within his constantly whirling field of view, some strange snippets materialized randomly, as if it were the resentment of people slain by his hand entwined with his soul that Candela had mentioned about.

And when the world stopped spinning, a brilliant flame suddenly erupted in front of Lin Jie.

All of this had flashed by in a mere instance.

Lin Jie blinked and his vision returned to normal.

In his hand was the 'sacred sword' that Candela had pulled out from his chest. The smooth and flat sword blade was like a white flame, illuminating all around it and forming a halo.

Illumination?

Lin Jie looked around him. This was no longer the ruined terrace he had been on.

His surroundings were covered by a roiling, thick gray fog. The moving fog lit by the glowing halo of the sword made it seem as if there was something alive within it.

And deeper into the fog which wasn't illuminated was an expanse of pitch-black darkness.

In the sky above was a massive fracture and forks of red lightning rippled within the dark clouds.

As if something would appear at any moment.

Lin Jie’s eyes followed the sword up towards his hands and finally noticed a difference. These hands were wrapped in some sort of glimmering metallic gauntlets followed by a pair of bracers.

From the look of things, Lin Jie felt that these hands weren't his.

His eyes went further downwards and he noticed the armor on his body was the same one that Candela had been wearing, just that it was even more resplendent, as if it was some sort of illusion.

And when he saw a glimpse of gold from the corner of his eyes as well as a sharp black beak, Lin Jie knew at once that there was a vigilant griffin walking slightly behind him.

At this moment, Lin Jie knew.

Passing through these fragmented scenes, he had arrived in Candela’s memories and then became him.

Is this... some sort of alternate dream within a dream?
