”School trip huh? ”
I don know Id be forced to attend this kind of event, sigh if I know about it Id have stayed home and sleep for the rest of the day.
A boy around 59 feet tall (180cm), wearing a student outfit standing in the field. As other students went inside their bus, hes the last few to actually go inside.
”And its really hot too. ”
He closes his eyes for a moment, but right after he opens his eyes..
”Alright then.. what the **? ”
Before he knows it, he was nowhere near the school field, more like in a chamber or some sort. White pillars lining on the wall, and few people with white orb are surrounding him.
”What is this place? ”
He didn know that another students would be here too. two girls and three boys, including himself.
”Where are we? ”
”I don know- ”
Another world huh? Would be bad if I didn say goodbye to some people.
”Hey can I go back? If you want to transport me to here, atleast let me say goodbye. ”
”Im sorry but thats not how the magic works. ”
”Well, shit. ”
Plan B, find a way to go back.
”So any reason why we
e here? I doubt the magic chooses a random spot with people in it, if it does.. yea I think this is a violation of privacy. ”
”Im just talking to myself, feel free to give us some information. ”
The other students are surprised and amazed at the same time. Their schoolmate somehow keeps it cool in an unknown situation like this.
The man looks around a little more while hearing someone who appears to be a priest explaining the situation.
e sorry if we disturbs you, but we
e on verge of destruction. You see, weve been fighting a demon lord for years and we can hold it anymore. This is why we summoned all of you, heroes to help us. ”
Hero? What a classic RPG game.
”Oh right, forgive my rudeness. Im Harold, the head priest in this country. ”
Hm should I give my real name? Or should I be safe? I don know if they have any lie detector in this world, oh well might as well try it.
”Im Alan, nice to meet you. ”
The other students know hes lying, but they kept their mouth silent because they know revealing their real name would get them in trouble.
”Its nice to meet you too, Alan. ”
. . . . .
After the introduction, Alan tries to remember every students that got transported here. Currently they
e waiting in a room until the meeting with the King comes.
The guy with bangs covering his eyes is Uramoto Kohei. The guy with short hair and glasses is Horikiri Sora. The girl that looks almost exactly the same as him is Horikiri Aoi, oh turns out they
e twins. The guy with a good muscle build is Ishii Kyoji, is he even a student? And the last one is a girl with black long hair, her name is Kudo Chizu.
So Im the only one who played safe huh?
”Can I ask why do you use a fake name? ”
”Playing safe of course, you don know what would happen in an unknown world. ”
”Fair enough. ”
The room is filled with silence, they don know on what to discuss and can only remain silent until this meeting with the King.
”Why don we make a plan while we wait. ”
”A plan? Why? ” Aoi asked.
”Better than doing nothing. Anyway we can just do whatever they said and gain some information or we could run away and risk of getting attacked or captured. ”
”Both of them are indeed risky. ”
”Of course, we don know what the world looks like. If we fight this demon lord we would lose our opportunity to talk a way out with him. You know? A peaceful option is better than making everyone your enemy. ”
”Thats true.. ”
”How about we wait until a few days, we should have enough information by that day. ”
”Kudo was it? Well that should work. ”
”I agree. ”
Everyone agreed on the plan. We will gather as much information in this few days. Once we have enough we will think about our future plan.
Sigh* after all of this thinking, I need some rest, or so what I thought.
A girl? Wait no a maid.
”Sorry for intrusion, Im Nue and Im here to bring you to the King. Please follow me. ”
They followed Nue into the Kings chamber. Turns out the castle is bigger than they think because it took awhile to arrive at the Kings chamber.
The room is as huge as half of football field. There are nothing else in the room other than a few people and the King himself. The group was amazed on how big this room is.
”I welcome you to my country, Zenrura. My name is Edward Santua. ”
The King stands up, walking toward the group.
”We already explained to you about the war. The demon lord had claimed Half of the continent. We have sent a proposal for alliance to other countries but they refuse coldly. You are our only hope. ”
Classic RPG style story. They sounds like NPC repeating their dialogue over and over, maybe escaping the country is the best choice..
”But how do we fight them? ”
”In this world, we have something called System to track off everything we have and help us progressing on getting stronger. Just think of the word System and it should appear infront of you. ”
”Uh, lets see.. system? ”
As I said it, a transparent blue board appeared infront of me. Lets see, theres stats, equipment, skill, and job.
Stats shows you, of course your status ranging from HP, MP, Vitality, Strength, Intellect, Dexterity, Defense, Agility. Equipment. of course I don wear any kind of armor right now. Skill shows your current skill, but currently I have none so I will skip that. And lastly job, well turns out I have a few jobs to pick.
e master of trickery, lockpicking and pickpocket is an easy job for them. They have high dexterity and agility, but their defense and strength are rather low. They only use dagger, rapier, and bow as their main weapon.
(80% VIT) (100% MP) (90% STR) (80% DEF) (95% INT) (120% DEX) (120% AGI)
Born as a warrior, swordsman use their balanced stats to defeat their enemy. Even though they mainly use strength, doesn mean their other stats are lower. They only use sword, longsword, and shield as their main weapon
(105% VIT) (100% MP) (115% STR) (105% DEF) (100% INT) ( 90% DEX) (95% AGI)
Even though they
e still apprentice, they shouldn be underestimated. They
e specialised in magic, and if you
e not careful enough they can easily defeat you in matter of seconds. They have great intellect and resistance, but they have a relatively low defense and agility.
(90% VIT) (125% MP) (90% STR) (80% DEF) (130% INT) (100% DEX) (70% AGI)
Weirdly enough theres no [Hero], maybe if I progress further I would unlock it?
”Feel free to pick any job on your liking. ”
If this game is based of RPG, that means I could master one of the job and then do another one to unlock a better job. But is that how it really works?
”Is it possible to switch jobs? ”
”Yes, you can switch between jobs in the system. ”
Seems like I was right. Theres only one job that could become better later on..
Clicking on [Thief], I quickly click on my status.
… damn Im weak as hell. Hm wait, [Time&Space]? Is this some kind of element?
Just as I think about it, the others are having the same problem like me. We don know what affinity is, maybe we know but we can be sure about it.
”Is there any problem? ”
”What does affinity means? ” Sora asked.
”It will be your main element. Although you can use other element, that element of yours will stay even though you switched jobs. ”
Huh? Thats pretty cool. So I can control time and space, but is there a limit to it? This kind of affinity should cost a lot of MP right? I mean it sounds really complex unlike other element.
”Well we can talk about each others ability later but for now lets continue with our last conversation. ”
”You see, you will be trained by our best warriors. Depending on what job you
e picking, you will have a personal tutor teaching you. We also hired another tutor to teach you all about magic. ”
I guess we
e scrapping the idea to run away. Its better if someone can teach us rather than learning by our own.
”Well thats it for now, you can take a rest. Feel free to ask us if you have any question. ”
Kyoji then steps up and ask..
”I may be rude, but how can we trust you? ”
Silence enveloped through the room. Some tried to talk but Edward raised his hand before they could.
”How about we use magic contract? Its a contract where if they
e not able to fullfill the deal then they would die instantly regardless of their power. ”
Kyoji looks back at the group and face Edward again.
”Give us a day. ”
”We will wait for your answer. ”
Kyoji stands back with the group, leaving the room.
”Sigh* this would be troublesome. ”
. . . . .
”Well thats really convenient. ”
We just need to think about the content of the contract, so it will be beneficial for us.
”Should we continue our last conversation? ”
I coldly say. Id rather take a rest, all of this made me tired.
”I guess we will continue tomorrow. ”
All of us agreed and went to our own room.
The room is pretty huge, like a luxury hotel. The whole room is well furnished with a couch, a table, nightstand, wardrobe, and a double bed.
”Oohh, not bad. ”
I went straight to the bed and lay on it..
”I want to live here so badly. ”
The bed is perfect, way too perfect. I could fell asleep in matter of seconds.
Just as I want to sleep, I remember about something.
”Right affinity. ”
It said I could use [Time&Space] magic, but how do I activate it? Do I automatically unlock it or I need to unlock it manually?
A lot of questions come to my mind. After a few minutes I fnally decide on what to do.
”Sleep, definitely sleep. ”
I quickly close my eyes and decided to sleep.
. . . . .
”Hey, what are we having tonight? ”
”Anything you want. ”
A boy and a girl walking together side by side. The boy has jet black hair with brown eyes while the girl has a long jet black hair with brown eyes.
The boy is around 15 years old while the girl is 13. They both just got back from school. Before they go home, they went to the grocery store.
With their hands full of grocery, they chatted while walking on the street.
”Yes yes, now be quiet before I change my mind. ”
The girl pushed the boy off, she took the impact from the car.
”… I need to treat her. ”
I took my handkerchief, trying to close her wound.
”Don worry Hana, your big brother is here. ”
Hes scared. hes scared that her sister would die. It just a normal walk, but why? Why does it need to happen? Shes so happy but then, she got hit by a car.
All he can hear is his heartbeat and the sirens, and suddenly it all went silent..
. . . . .
Sigh* I should be able to move on at this point but I kept getting dreams about her.
I open the curtain and take a look. Yeah its early in the morning, maybe around 5 A.M.
”A quick walk should get me relaxed. ”
I open the wardrobe, all I find is suits and no normal clothes.
”I think I could ask for some normal clothes. ”
I leave the room, and realised that Im inside a long hallway. Im started to think theres a hotel in this castle.
As I walked for a bit, I thought the hall would be empty but its packed with guards and maids. After awhile, I found myself in the garden.
”Not bad. ”
I muttered. The garden is filled with multiple flowers and a gazebo in the middle of it. There are several benches lined up infront of the bushes.
”Hm, guess it should be enough. ”
As I turn back, I saw a girl standing on the roof. A long jet black hair with brown eyes..
