n away for the rest of your life like a coward.


A coward who gets scared and tries to run away when there is work to be done.

That is you, Jamie Welton.


I cannot do anything.

No, not a single thing.

I can run away.

And live like that for the rest of my life.

Hiding all by myself, belittling myself, and living like a bug.

‘I am not a bug! I am…!’

The one who would save mankind from the hands of the 12 Gods! Who was the one who spoke such words and then ran away because he couldn’t protect his family?

A liar, a betrayer, and a coward.

Accept it now.

A human like me.


Isn’t the hero who would save the world.

So struggle.

Even cowards struggle.

Even if you are a betrayer, you have to struggle to be the winner in the end.
Even if you lie, it is to save the world!

Use your bug-like mind and make what you want real!

Do you want to end up as trash? Do you want to live like a bug until the end?

“I don’t want to.
I don’t want to see someone die in front of my eyes like Father again.”

Then there is only one thing that I, Jamie Welton, have to do.

Get up.

“Stand up.”

Even if a crisis arises again and even if I cannot stop it any longer.

I need to get up.

Run for a while now, be a coward, and even lie about it.

But the one thing you can never do is…

“If you give up, then everything ends.”

Now, the world was reaching its climax.

Sarah is crying.

Mom is waiting.

My family is still there.

I still have a family.”

He couldn’t stay like this forever.

A voice from within him set his broken spirit back together.

The biggest reason that happened….

Jamie looked at his sister, who looked hazy.
He saw her weeping in his arms.

Thanks to this child coming this far, he could move forward.

It could happen.

“Brother, get your mind straight.

Sarah clung to Jamie’s arms, who sat blankly without a word.
Even when he reacted to the word ‘Mother,’ she thought something had changed, but seeing that he hadn’t spoken any other word after, she thought his condition worsened.

“Please wake up.
Wake up now… Uh?”

Sarah, who was buried in his arms, raised her head full of tears and a runny nose when her brother suddenly got up.


Sarah was shocked at this.
Until now, her brother looked dead.

Sarah, wondering if he had a change of heart, slightly got up and looked at her brother.
His eyes were still dark and hollow.

But she felt something change a little, and right then…


Jamie called out her name for the first time.
Sarah looked at her brother with shocked eyes.

His sunken eyes were turning normal, and he smiled.

“I am here.”

Sarah looked at him.


And she cried her eyes out.

“You bastard!”

And a tightly clenched fist hit Jamie in the face.


Jamie, who was hit, flew in the air and landed on the ground.
It was such a sudden punch that he couldn’t react.

No, it was so fast that he couldn’t even react to it if he had noticed it.

‘When did Sarah get this strong…’

His little sister, who was so small and delicate, had just blown him away with a single punch.

How should he accept this?

But the problem wasn’t the punch.

Jamie looked at Sarah as he rubbed his hand over his face.
She seemed angry, like she wanted him to burn.


Jamie immediately apologized.
If not, he was sure there would be another hit.

‘I’d be happy if you could, but it hurts a lot more than I thought.’

Maybe his jawbone would crack this time.

Sarah glared at her brother and then sighed.
It felt like she would hit him one more time.

Jamie looked into her eyes and got up.

Should he dodge it?

‘That won’t do.’

He made a mistake, and there was nothing he could say, even if she beat him to death.

Sarah asked Jamie with her eyes.
And it felt more frightening.

“Are you really my brother?”

Was it right for her to hit him and then just ask him that now?

Jamie wanted to ask that, but he nodded instead, thinking he would get hit again.

You are right.”

“You really are my brother.”

Sarah clenched her fist.
It looked like she was going to hit him again.

Jamie closed his eyes tightly.
But the fist didn’t come.

Instead, he opened his eyes at the feeling of Sarah in his arms.

“Thank goodness.
Really… I am happy.”


“I was so scared when I realized Brother was gone.
I no longer have Father, and if Brother is gone, how will Mom and I live alone… Really… I am glad.”

I am really sorry.”

Jamie realized what he had done wrong to Sarah.
And it wasn’t just her.

He didn’t even support his mother.

Buried in guilt, he distanced himself from his family.
That wasn’t just enough, so he threw his emotions away and even did something he shouldn’t have done.

He felt so sorry that even saying sorry felt like it was a lie.
But all he could do was apologize.

Jamie covered Sarah’s face with both of his hands and asked for forgiveness.

“It will never happen again.
Will you forgive Brother?”


Sarah refused to forgive him, and Jamie was shocked.

“I think I will have to hit you one more time to do that.”


And she clenched her fist and struck Jamie in the stomach.
Looking at her brother, who was slumped on the ground, Sarah said,

“I can forgive you now.”

Her expression looked calm.

And Jamie mumbled with a forced laugh,

“T-Thank goodness.”
