. Every step he took was calm and without hesitation until he was right in front of the guard who at this time was trembling uncontrollably. As he took his final step the childlike smile turned into a maniacal one showing all of his eeth in an unnaturally wide smile.

Wrench: [Blood lust] ”Because when I get out of here, you
e the first one I will dispose of and replace, the world needs not the likes of you, so be a good boy and don get out of line. ”

As Wrench said this his masks smile turned into a normal one and his voice back to a normal pitch as his bloodlust receded.

Wrench: *Childlike happiness*: ”But I don need to worry because you are a good little guard aren you! ”

Guard: ”Y-y-yes! Yes, I am sorry for bothering you! I just wanted to know you are here! ”

After Wrenchs persuasion the guard remembered that he was just a normal human talking to people who would soon be killing others daily, and most importantly the fact that if any of them wanted to, they could kill him where he stood even with the binding chains. However, after he thought this, he looked in and saw that none of them were chained which made him so scared that he directly passed out letting out his bowels as he did so.

Ithil: ”Why did you do that?! He did nothing wrong! How could you! ”

Nick: ”Shut up, he touched a sore spot, and I don just let those things slide. ”

Aial: ”Now that you mention it, we never did have a look at your past and you looked like you didn really pay attention to ours either, are you really a normal person? You could have been sent here to spy on us! ”

Wrench: Don gaslight me bitch!

Nick: ”Sorry if that was what it looks like, but I have a general rule to myself, and the saying goes like this. I don expect you to know where Ive been so don expect that I feel the same. Keep this in mind and we will have a pleasant stay together, but start making moves and you find out why I was called my countrys royal executioner ok? ”

Unlike last time Nick needed no bloodlust or creepy smiles, the point was clear and concise with no room for an objection to take place.

Flask: ”This is funny, but I would like to remind you that we are about to be taken as prisoner gladiators, so if you don want to give them a horrible first impression, I would take a seat. ”

Due to Flasks carefree attitude the tension in the cart was eased up significantly leading the guards surrounding the cart to remember that they were tasked with escorting these prisoners. At this moment the guards collectively looked at the captain to take the first step as their leader. What made it worse is that the captain struggled to remember to move. This was the most blood crazed and powerful group of gladiators that he had ever seen in the same cart. At this moment the captain cursed his leaders ancestors for making him take the prisoners out of the cart, but people can just stand around all day so eventually the captain took a brief breath and collected his confidence.

Captain: ”We will now escort you to your new cells please contain yourselves until we reach your block! ”

With this the guards rallied and continued with their jobs, one at a time each of the prisoners was taken out until Nick remained. While escorting him to his block he saw rows of prisoners yelling at the guards and using wooden sticks to bang on the iron doors. After a while more of walking Nick finally reached his block, the iron door was opened by the guards, and he took his first step into his new home.

[A few hours later]

This was boring, like a new level of boring. He had a 15ft by 10 room, 1 bed against the wall, 1 torch on the left wall seemingly run by magic, a toilet, and a nightstand. All things considered this was probably one of the nicer rooms seeing how there was not a room across from him with a person in it watching him shit and sleep. What he would give for a little excitement around here!

At that moment he saw the torch flicker and a little stray flame hit him on the hand The fire feels nice he thought. That was his eureka moment, he realized that if mana was controlling the flame, then it would have to be a rune! Normally this would not mean much but to Nick this was essential for his survival in the pit. Without a gun he had no reliable way to kill or injure someone that was trying to take his life. However, with magic that would not be an issue any longer, it would still be tough and a hard-fought match, but he would be more confident in taking the top spot.

With that he looked in the drawers of his nightstand taking out the bible that was stashed in the top compartments. He immediately went to the back page and ripped out the blank page using the cover of the book as a makeshift clipboard. He then took the torch off the wall and examined the actual makeup of the object. He saw that a black sphere was placed on top of the base of a wooden cone. The fire seemed to be originating from the black stone so Nick decided that the best course of action would be to take out the black sphere from the cone and examine it directly.

Thus, he immediately stuck his hand into the fire to slowly take the sphere out without damaging it.

[You take 5 fire damage]

[You take 4 fire damage]

[You take 6 fire damage]

[You take 4 …]


As Nick felt his skin start to melt, he heard the sound of footsteps come from the hallway from his right. This made him speed up a little as he slowly felt the orb come out of the wooden cone.

*Step Step*

With every step the sound got louder and so did the humming that the owner of the steps was emitting while he walked.

*Step Step*

At this point he was down ¼ of his health and could see the bones of his hand as his flesh fell to the floor.

*Step Step*

He was almost there when he heard the steps quicken.


He reasoned that he had 5 more seconds when he finally got the orb out, the orb extinguished letting Nick go the drawer as his back covers what he was doing.

Guard: ”Nick, desist! ”

Nick: ”What? Did I do something wrong? ”

Nick started getting worried that the guard had seen what he was doing. In truth the guard just didn care, he had seen all sorts of lunatics so seeing one destroy his light source was one of the tamest things he had seen. He actually went there to tell him some important news.

Guard: ”Congratulations! You were decided to be one of the two contestants for an expedition match held to entertain the magistrate! This is a massive honor; you should be ecstatic! ”

Wrench: Honour my ass! We were just about to try to learn magic that is 10 times more important than the magistrate!

Nick: ”Oh? Im glad that I could take on this honorable role. ”

Guard: ”As you should be, but now is not the time to wait we must go to the arena post haste! ”

With that Nick and Wrench would finally get a real taste of combat for the first time since they came to this world.

(A/N This is getting featured on new releases soon so thats nice, also, first round of combat next chapter in front of the citys governor how wonderful will it be to traumatize him.)
