"We'll see if that planet is really the one..." Souta said while rubbing his chin.

The Council was really hard to deal with. Back in the game, he came to Orina when he was a low-level player but instantly died due to its harsh environment. Later, he came back when he became one of the Commanders in the Mechanic Country. He entered the planet dominantly fighting both the Council and the people of this planet.

The [Solid State Hunter Boots] and [Yin Yang Bracelet] were important to his strength. He couldn't let these two pieces of equipment rot on that planet.

"What's with that planet, Souta?" Alice asked from the side.

"It's just a sub-world but I needed to acquire something in it. If that planet is really the one then we will fight against the Council of High-World." Souta explained to her.

There was a reason why the Council of High-World wanted that planet for themselves. It was because of the mana stones on the planet. The mana stones that can be found on the surface of Orina were enormous. There was even a mana essence, a highly concentrated mana. The energy inside a mana essence was fifty times higher than the high-grade mana stones.

Also, according to the folks there their god was the God of Storm. And people from the Council thought that the Legacy of the God of Storm was somewhere around the planet. Later on in the game, no one found the legacy even after thousands of players explore the planet.

"Just reminder that I'm still not sure if this planet is the one you're talking about. We need to approach it first before I confirmed anything. It's too far and our technology isn't that advanced to pry that planet." Torkez explained.

"Oh..."

Eztein was on the sideline and he couldn't even join the conversation. He didn't have an idea what they were talking about. He just knew that these guys wanted to find a certain planet.

"Alright. But if we found one of the planets under the Council that I know then I would be able to ascertain their territory." Souta turned his eyes away from the projection.

Although they were inside the territory of the Council of High-World, Souta didn't have an idea where they were or what's their position in outer space. After all, there were tens of thousands of galaxies under its rule, and among all the galaxies they could only find hundreds of planets with mana density.

It was too huge and they didn't know where to find that one planet among these galaxies. If he found one planet that he knew in the game, then he will know the structure and his position at the moment. Unfortunately, the planet that they were on was unknown to him in the past so he couldn't do anything about it.

"Hmm... We really need to build a research team to improve our technological advantage. Most of the people didn't even care about technology, they only care about spells or their own individual strength." Souta said with a sigh. He shook his head and said, "Torkez, just focus on cultivating Parasite King."

"I understand." Torkez nodded.

"Okay." Souta looked at Eztein and said, "Eztein bring me to Eilish and Gragas' room. I need to thank them for helping me, especially Eilish. Without her, I wouldn't be able to hold back Rowan alone."

"O-Okay..." Eztein was a little bit surprised but it was within his expectations. He was called here so he realized that Souta needed him for something.

"Torkez, Alice. Help the preparing the others. I'll be out for a minute." Souta said before he followed Eztein out of the room.

After Souta was gone, Alice breath a sigh while looking at the door.

"Sigh..."

She was glad that Souta didn't care about her identity as a demon but she wasn't an ordinary demon. She was the third princess of the Heavenly Demon Palace, one of Great Demon Emperor Lucifer's daughters.

She wondered what would be his reaction if she told him the truth. Nevertheless, she could hardly believe that Souta was a monster all along. All the hints were there, it's just that she didn't bother thinking about it in the past.

Torkez glanced at her and said, "I'll go now. I'll help Isabella deliver potions to our wounded men."

"Okay, I'll stay here for a while," Alice replied to him.

In this group, she was second to the strongest if she released her limiter. Her demon form wasn't her strongest form, it was still limited due to her nature as her father would sense her location if the limiter was broken.

Souta was worried about the Council but Alice didn't care about it. What concerned her was her father's army. She was sure that her father already sensed her location and sooner demons would arrive in this place. They would literally flip this planet upside down just to find her whereabouts.

She needed to tell him about this.

Alice raised her hand and looked at the bracelet on her wrist.

"My strength is still far from enough."

Her current power level without being limited was already at S-rank. The energy from the demon sacrificial ceremony before let her reach the level of S-rank. She solidified some of her mana but she was still far from peak S-rank. Nevertheless, her strength was enough to contend against ordinary peak S-rank due to the advantage of her race. She also had a lot of powerful skills thanks to her origin.

"I'll just wait for him to finish all the things he needed to do here."

...

Souta and Eztein arrived in Gragas' room. Gragas was awake and he could barely move his body due to the heavy injuries that he took in the battle.

"Damn! I'm all beat up now. How do you plan to reward me for helping you in battle?!" Gragas said in annoyance when he saw Souta enter the room.

"Tsk! Tsk! You would be dead right now if not for me..." Eztein opened his arms and shook his head helplessly.

"You're the same. If not for that strange regenerative ability you would be in the same condition as me." Gragas raised his voice.

"Now, now, let's stop the joke." Souta smiled thinking that Gragas was fine if he could talk like that.

"I'm not joking!" Gragas sighed thinking that this monster was annoying to deal with.

"Well, don't worry about it. I'll compensate you for helping me this time. It's better than you can imagine." Souta said as he recalled that he had a bunch of precious materials in his room along with those mana fruits that he got from the legacy.

"Oh, what if I don't like it?"

"Haha, you will like it. I'm confident with that." Souta laughed. Then, someone opened the door and enter the room.

"Really? Then, what about me? I think my contribution in battle is higher than that dwarf." Eilish said with a faint smile on her face.

"You old hag!! Don't underestimate me!! I did a lot of things today that I never imagine that I would do in my life!" Gragas pointed his finger at the newly arrived woman.

"You're here. If the two are here then let's finish it. Just say what you want, I will give anything to you if it's within my capabilities." Souta said as he glanced at Eilish and Gragas.

Eilish ignore his words and said, "You know... I didn't expect to hear that you're from the Great World. It's outside of my expectations and when I thought about it it made sense that you're from that world."

Souta looked around the room. He sat on the empty chair before he said, "Yeah, people wouldn't go around declaring that they are from Imperium. Only ignorant people do that."

"So, what are you going to do now? Are you going to stay on this planet or not? The person controlling the Clan Leader will hunt you sooner or later." Eilish asked as she glanced at his face from the corner of her eyes.

"What I'm going to do? Of course, I'm going to leave this planet. I've confirmed that the enemy is from the Council of High-World. Based on what happened here, they are going to forcibly control this planet so I advise you to be careful." Souta shrugged his shoulder.

"Hmm...? Where do you plan to go?" Eilish asked.

"Why do you want to know? Do you want to come with me to Imperium? Is that what you want?" Souta turned to her.

"It's true that I want to go to Imperium. Even though I'm at Extinction Realm, it would still take thousands of years if I travel to space alone. And you, you have the technology to jump through space." Eilish said to him. "I doubt that you would let me borrow one of your ships if I ask for it."

"Yeah, I wouldn't give any of my ships to you. And letting someone stronger than me in my ships wouldn't let me relax even if I know that it's you." Souta paused as he stared into her eyes. "Unless...."
