Chapter 87: Death Is Just the Beginning

Uesugi Kiyoshi remained calm, such a result was expected.

Desire is a weakness, with weaknesses, powerful monsters can be exploited, without weaknesses, frail humans cannot be manipulated.

In terms of comics, the Vortex triggers a curse once every few hundred years, luring humans on the ground into its territory, then revealing itself before them.

Will this vain creature be able to bear letting the humans in front of it go, and wait for another cycle?

Itsutsu Kishima breathed a sigh of relief, patted his chest, and curiously asked, "Vortex-kunn, if it doesn't agree, are you really prepared to push the button?"

"Of course!" Uesugi Kiyoshi replied without hesitation.

The button will definitely be pressed, but this is not a suicide.

He is indeed strapped with a high-voltage device of 50,000 volts, but it is a pulse electric shock that will not actually harm the body. And the pulse electric shock will also trigger another switch, activating the compressed gas cylinder under his feet.

By spraying out gas to lift a tornado and fly out of this underground world, the possibility is quite high. Even if it doesn't work, he can hold on until the curse ends and wait for rescue.

What is his identity, how can he perish here with a strange and unnamed person?

"Before negotiating, please allow me to tell you a fact."

Uesugi Kiyoshi carefully chose his words and began another negotiation.

"The outside world already knows of your existence. If you still want to continue as before, cleaning up the traces of crime and recruiting new tenants, it may not work anymore!"

"Humans are good at forgetting," said Saito Shuichi.

Of course, this is the will of the vortex. It seems that it can only communicate with certain specific people.

Uesugi Kiyoshi nodded in agreement, "Perhaps, but do you know what they will do?"

"Humans pose no threat to me!"

"But they can bury you!" Uesugi Kiyoshi painted a grim picture of the whirlpools. "After the curse fades, they will use something strange called Headless Sculpture to melt the surrounding mountains. The plains in this mountain-sea area will be submerged in molten rock, merging with the mountains."

"New massive rocks will flood Dragonfly Pond or other landmarks. Humans will use them as your tombstones and carve warnings for future generations. How will you unleash the curse again? Even if you can, how will the new residents pass through the rocks to enter your domain?"

Saito Shuichi closed his eyes to feel, then remained silent.

"Or they could use a digging machine to create a tunnel and pour in a strange, multiplying humanoid creature into your territory, filling your world with these oddities, making it impossible for anyone to enter, even if reopened."

"Even I can come up with these two methods, not to mention others. You're finished, vortex, no matter what, you won't be able to freely harvest humans like before. Are you willing to accept this fate?!"

A loud buzzing noise suddenly filled the underground world, causing everything to shake violently.

"It's angry and scared!"

Uesugi Kiyoshi could feel it even without Saito Shuichi saying.

He quickly raised the megaphone and continued, "But you have another choice, one that might be better than now!"

The world hesitated, then returned to calmness once again.

"It makes you speak it out," Saito Shuichi said.

"Ideals that humans cannot achieve are often entrusted to their children. For humans with short lifespans, children are an extension of their parents' lives. So, can you entrust your desires to your successor?"

"If it's possible, I can promise to have her constantly bathed in the eyes of the people, not just the few thousand in Black Vortex Town, but tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, even millions of people! Your one reincarnation is just a minute for her. Are you willing to let her take your place?"

Light and darkness intertwined, as if a whirlpool was thinking, then Saito Shuichi nodded.

"It says it's possible, how should we do it?"

Only then did Uesugi Kiyoshi relax and opened his eyes, pulling out a white robe from the disciple's backpack beside him.

"First, please marry me!"

.........…

Place the white cloth on the Vortex, then Uesugi Kiyoshi drinks three cups of sake in nine sips, each time he drinks, he pours a cup on the Vortex.

Saito Shuichi, as a witness, sits between Uesugi Kiyoshi and the Vortex, overseeing the wedding, while the devotees sit around as family members.

The traditional wedding ceremony quickly ends, making the Vortex a part of the Tokura family.

Then the Vortex can peacefully die.

Even though there is a possibility of taking it away alive, Uesugi Kiyoshi doesn't want to, as he lacks countermeasures.

In that case, it's better to create a remnant of the Vortex through Vortex Shintoism.

He had asked Ode before, the Tokura family's abilities can also be applied to the Vortex, albeit only partially retained without adding new powers, which is sufficient.

The image in the believer's heart's vortex is that of a blonde and blue-eyed beautiful girl, the resurrected remnant should be just like that.

If the remnant goes out of control, handling it is quite simple, just announce divorce from the vortex and expel it from the Tokura clan, losing its dependence, it will naturally disappear soon.

The light gradually dimmed until it completely disappeared.

Uesugi Kiyoshi held a simple farewell ceremony for the deceased vortex, where the believers clasped their hands together, focusing on reminiscing the appearance of the vortex goddess in their hearts.

Faint mist gathered together, the girl's figure gradually solidified, she wore a black cloak, had dazzling blonde long hair, and a confused expression appeared on her delicate face.

"This is? Who am I?"

"Welcome, strange vortex, but from now on, you shall be called Tawil!" Uesugi Kiyoshi casually chose a name.

"Tawil..."

Tawil rubbed her forehead, the puzzled expression gradually disappeared.

"Oh, by the way, I'm dead now, just a ghost... But it doesn't matter, I want to become famous, to be the center of attention for everyone, and you will help me, right?"

"That depends on your strength!" Uesugi Kiyoshi replied with a smile.

Tawil reached out his hands, a hurricane rose up gently, swirling everyone into the underground world, back to Black Vortex Town.

The spiral stone columns underground also rose up, sealing off the passage below Dragonfly Pond, and ending the two-week Vortex Curse.

Without the whirlwind, the humans flying in the sky fell down like dumplings, but Tawil reached out a helping hand, safely bringing them back to the ground, then they lost consciousness.

As for the hurricane number one, who was still guarding foolishly, a mere slap made its body crumble, until it vanished into thin air.

"How about that?" Tawil gasped heavily, clapping his hands in triumph, "With this kind of power, I should be able to be a big star, right?"

"A big star? No no no, you should be a big president instead!" Uesugi Kiyoshi earnestly replied.
