“I say, how did you come into this world?”
After killing the 3rd batch of wolves, I looked at my inventory that automatically fills up, and then raised my head and asked.
“Hmm~ I wonder…”
Aliyah used her short sword and stabbed into the corpse of the wolf, the corpse disappeared and changed into a piece of wolf leather.
“I only remember I was playing a game until I fell asleep that night, and in the next morning, I found myself waking up on the grassland outside this village. What about you?”
I racked my brains to recall, and then said.
“I only remember playing with some of my online friends. We were clearing a dungeon… and then I can’t recall anymore.”
“Is that so… In any case, simply put, we crossed into a different world, didn’t we?”
“Crossing worlds… Although I read such light novels before, but to actually experience it myself is not something I can simply laugh about…”
Likewise, Aliyah gave a similar expression.
“You’re right. Also, I don’t even know what I had to do. I just subconsciously started to grind levels and complete quests… Games had really stuck into me, huh… in a bad way too.”
Wait a minute…
You’re telling me this girl is also a gaming addict? She don’t look like that sort at all!
Looking at her cute appearance, it’s almost impossible to believe she’s the indoor type!
“What? I have a feeling you’re looking at me with an unbelievable expression.”
Seemed like Aliyah felt what I was thinking, as she said unhappily.
“No, it’s just that… I’m the same. I don’t even know why we’re sent here. In usual scenarios, when the world is in danger, people are summoned from a different world in hopes they could save the world. Or, we may have been accidentally sent to this world. Currently, we have no idea why this happened to us at all.”
“Yeah, and what’s most important, is that we don’t know why the world is like this. No matter how I look at it, this world is just a normal RPG world. If my memory does not fail me, I have never played a game like this before. How about you?”
From the looks of it, the reason why we’re here was not related to the games we played before. Then, why were we here?
Oh well, there’s no point thinking about this if we could not find this answer.
“In this kind of situations, we can only do what we can do, right? Although I don’t know whether we will age in this world or not, but given the nature of regular games, our speed of leveling should be much faster than the people in this world. And then, maybe, it will trigger some weird event.”
“Then, why are we not able to leave this place?”
I pondered for a while, and then said.
“After playing so many games, I conclude there’s only 2 possibilities. First, we have not triggered the necessary event, and second, we have not reached the level requirement to leave this village.”
“Level requirement? The hell? Unless we have to gather all 7 dragon balls to open a portal?”
“No, no, no. Although the scenario is wrong, we don’t use those 7 balls to open a portal, do we?”
“We don’t really need to mind such things, do we?”
“You’re the one that started it!”
I helplessly shook my head.
“In any case, it’s becoming too hard for us to level with just the monsters outside the village. Though these monsters are no longer a threat, we should think of a way to leave this place for now.”
That’s right, before we know it, we have already cleared this entire area several times. I was already LV 7, and I needed 6400 EXP to level up. Aliyah was already LV 8, and she needed 12800 EXP to level up. The strongest wolf here only gave 20 EXP. If we want to level up here, it would be too long.
Of course, another reason was we were too lazy, after all, it was getting boring.
“Hey, why don’t we try burning the village?”
“Well, you see, after all this is a fake world, even if we burn it down, there’s no problem, is there?”
This girl… what was she doing in the real world? Was she involved with the underworld?
“Hey hey, this is a RPG world right? Hence, even if we try burning the buildings, they won’t actually… burn… right?”
Before I managed to finish, the house beside me began to crack open. Numerous sword slashes were seen on the walls. The entire house became several pieces and crashed down in a blink of an eye.
This was Aliyah’s Secret Skill, Shredding Blade Slash.
“Look, isn’t this…”
When the entire place was still covered in smoke, I grabbed onto her and fled the scene.
“You idiot! Even if the villagers’ AI are like those in a RPG, but if you were to talk to them regularly, they are just like regular people. In other words, they have their own consciousness! Once they realised we destroyed their place, who knows what will happen!”
“Then what else can we do…”
Suddenly, Aliyah’s name turned from white to black. There were also new added words beside her name.
[Evil] [Low Profile] [Village Destroyer]
Hey hey hey! What is this? She actually received titles!
“Did you receive anything?”
“Yep. There’s also a pop-up saying I completed a route, and I could choose to leave the village.”
Aliyah clicked some stuffs in the air, and said.
“I see, not only does this village allows you to choose your class, but also sets us up on our future routes. But the problem is, we don’t know what are the requirements to unlock them. If I were to peek into a girl’s bath, I wonder if I would receive the pervert title.”
“If you were to actually unlock those titles, don’t tell anyone that I know you.”
“Hahaha, we can talk about that later.”
After running to a safe spot, I released her hand and asked,
“So, what are you going to do now?”
“Mmhmm, This is actually interesting. After receiving these titles, I also unlocked various attributes. My Evil attribute raised by 3 points.I think it will affect my position in the evil forces… My Sneak Ability also raised by 2 points. The higher it is, the harder it is for people to notice me. Finally, the Destroyer attribute says… I would receive EXP from destroying structures…”
“Hey hey! That’s incredible! I see, I don’t care who designed this world, but this is actually pretty interesting! Aliyah… Eh? Aliyah?”
When I was talking, Aliyah transformed into streaks of light and disappeared before me.
“That girl… left the Beginners’ Village? Sheesh, to think she would leave before saying anything.”
Reluctantly, I walked over to the village elder’s place.
Just when I reached there, I saw several people standing at the doorstep, and the elder was among them.
“Oh, if it isn’t Fir? You’re just in time! We seem to have some trouble.”
When I was about to walk over to the village elder, an arrow flew across my face and landed behind me.
When I look over to the source of the arrow, I saw a villager aiming his bow at me.
“What are you guys trying to do…”
“Tch, you guys were the only two that came to this village recently. That house earlier was destroyed by you guys, right!? What are your motives? Spit it out!”
At that moment, the names above all the villagers turned red. Without a doubt, they had all turned into my enemies!
What the hell! I wasn’t the one that did it in the first place! So why are they pushing all the blame onto me!?
In that instant, a screen appeared before my eyes.
Titles Unlocked: [Kind] [Whatever Goes] [Scapegoat]
Kind attribute increased by 5 points.
Resistance increased by 5 points.
The accumulation of Crime points, with effect immediately, will be converted to EXP.
Do you want to leave the Beginners’ Village?
Seeing the entire crowd of villagers approaching, I immediately chose to leave.
After that, I was enveloped in a white light.
