Zach watched Ameria's lifeless body with an anxious and concerned look on his face.
He took a deep breath and held it in. As the time passed by, Zach's face turned more and more pale.
After five minutes, Ameria's body shined, and it turned into a familiar figure with white hair, crimson eyes, and crystal-like wings.
It was Aria.
"You are barbaric as always," she said with an evil grin on her face.
"I knew it!" Zach yelled and stood up. He finally released his held breath and gasped for the air.
"I freaking knew it!"
Aria shook her head in disbelief after seeing Zach rejoicing, and said, "Would you mind not being so happy after you killed me.? Although I didn't die."
Zach was scared. He was feeling anxious because he had killed Ameria. He was afraid of the worst.
What if that girl wasn't Aria and Zach had killed an innocent girl only to prove his point?
Zach wouldn't be able to forgive himself.
Of course, Zach didn't care if players died in Gods' Impact; He had no control over it. However, if a player was dying in front of him, Zach would definitely save them because he had control over it.
Similarly, Zach had no remorse in killing other players if they messed with him, but he would never kill an innocent for no reason.
Zach didn't like being afraid and anxious because they made him look weak. And once again, Aria was the cause of it.
"Tch!" Aria clicked her tongue and said, "I thought my acting was perfect."
"Oh, it was. And didn't you find it cringe to act like that?" Zach rolled his eyes and said, "Ameria's personality was so innocent and shy. And you are a total opposite of that."
Zach clapped his hands and said, "I am genuinely surprised by your acting. But now, I feel extremely cringe."
"How did you find out it was me?" Aria asked. "I didn't give in even when you stabbed me."
"I just had a hunch," Zach replied in a low voice.
"So you were ready to kill an innocent girl because of a hunch?" Aria asked with a surprised look on her face.
"I did have a little bit of my suspicion on you. Like your name for some example," Zach scoffed. "Whenever I called your name, I always thought of Aria. But of course, that wasn't the only reason."
"Well, reasons don't matter." Zach frowned his face at Aria and said, "Why are you here?"
"I have been alone for millions of years until I met you. I thought, I would finally be able to take my revenge to usurp the heavens. That's why, I gave you my blessings so you can get strong. I gave you my domain where you could cultivate twice. But.. But…"
Aria clenched her fists and glared at Zach with a fierce gaze in her eyes. She gritted her teeth and said with a furious look on her face: "But you never once came into my domain."
"Come on. You can't be that stupid." Zach remarked. "I didn't come because I did not want to come."
"What do you mean why? Listen, let me make it clear." Zach cleared his throat and said, "I. Do. Not. Trust. You."
"Wow." Aria retracted her wings and clapped her hands with a face full of dissatisfaction.
"That's a great way to show your gratitude for all the things I gave you," Aria asserted in a disdainful tone.
"Hey, I didn't say that. Honestly, I am truly grateful for everything you have done for me. Without you, I wouldn't have made this far." Zach showed his sincerity to Aria.
It was true that Aria's blessings helped Zach many times. If he didn't have her blessings, he wouldn't be able to change his classes.
Zach once changed his class from witcher to healer to heal Aurora when she was low on HP. Then, he found out he could also change his class to NPC exclusive classes and changed his class to crafter class.
Without Aria's blessings, Zach wouldn't be able to craft EXP potions that were soon going to bring revolution to the Gods' impact.
Zach was honestly grateful to Aria. But that was a different thing.
"Okay, back to the main topic again." Zach stared at Aria and asked, "Why did you come here?"
Aria averted her gaze and answered, "I was bored."
Zach raised his brows and asked, "I thought you couldn't enter this game. So… are you here as an NPC or something?"
"No. I am here as a player, and everything I told you about my class is true," Aria answered.
"What about that backstory? Was it also true?" Zach asked with a curious yet calm look on his face.
"The story is true, but it didn't happen in this game," Aria replied.
"So… in short." Zach knitted his brows and asked, "You are here as a player to play this game?"
"You can say that, yes," Aria nodded.
Zach face-palmed himself and said, "You are the only one who willingly entered this death game. Did you forget that if you die here, you will die in the real world… or wherever you are from."
"Oh!" Aria shook her head and said, "I won't die."
"Why? Have you made some kind of contract or deal with the gods? If yes, then I should really kill you," Zach sneered. "I don't want a god's dog near me."
"The players in this game have their souls trapped here. While 90% of my soul is in my world, while only 10% of my soul fragment is here. So even if I die here— which is impossible, by the way— nothing would happen to me in the real world," Aria explained.
"..." Zach let out a sigh and thought, 'Why was I worried about her?'
"Hey, mortal…. I mean, Zach…" Aria walked to Zach and stood in front of him before saying, "How about 'we' make a deal?"
"Is this the same deal you proposed before? The one where you asked me to join you to kill the gods?"
"No. I want us to make a contract."
"..." Zach didn't understand what Aria was trying to say, so he simply stared at her with a puzzled look on his face.
"I remember you said you would help me defeat the gods if I give you something in return, and I did; I gave you my blessings," Aria asserted. "But I am sure it's not enough for you, so let's form a pact."
"What type of pact?"
"A soul pact."
Total players in the game 410501.

29 players died.

Author's Note- I was going to do something interesting for chapter 69 like I did in my other novel 'Secret Killer'. But sadly, this novel needs some more chapters before Zach actually starts romancing.
Spoiler: It will happen after his ex-girlfriend is introduced, which is not far away.
