chapter 4 : The town of beginings ( part 1 )

Walking for a good amount of time, I have finally found what looks like a dirt road.

With hope of getting back to civilization, I proceeded on following the path.

The whole forest wasn't really that scary and once you've gotten used to it, you will find it a bit relaxing.

The sound of birds chirping from a distance, the fresh air, ahh, this feels good.

The view of nature in the background, and me in the middle of it.

After a while of endless walking I stumbled upon my first monsters.

What I saw was a four legged animal, smooth blue fur, sharp eyes, with 1 small black horn in the middle of its forehead.

The other looks like a grounded bird that you only normally see in the wild, fluffy feathers, and it seems injured.

I took my terminal and checked the info on the two.

[ Checking Monster Information ]

[ Updating Database ]

I'm really thankful for having this with me when I came here, other than the size of the terminal which remained the same.

It seems to have transformed from what it originally was.

The color of the outer case changed into black, the screen a bit wider than before, and a bunch of new interface and other options, application, files, that I dont remember ever getting. Other than system log, status window, inventory, skill window, Map ( which is empty. in-order for it to save map info, i needed to first travel the area or obtain a copy from somewhere. ) the most likely neat function is Scan, allowing me to view information on a target.

Aria: " uhm... you poor thing, being bullied by someone bigger than you.

Seeing as the gallus has no chance of winning against the fox, I decided to help. Probably because i'm also a victim of sorts.

Aria: " Hey! you!!! pick on someone your own size!

Unsheathing the stick from my waist, I quickly ran towards the fox.

"

* tring! *

[ Aria has entered the Battle ]

"

raising my stick over my head, aiming for the fox, I slashed downwards with extreme force! the sound of wind separating as the full brunt of my attack is quickly coming closer and closer to the fox with every passing moment.

Aria: " Hyaa!!! huh?! Eeehhh???

your attack missed!

Suprisingly the fox was quick on its feet, and I continued on trying to hit it from all directions. but to no avail.

Aria: " No way!!! This can't be happening!

I guess I have no choice.

Aria: " Phew!!! I won! thank god..... ( I didn't know I could use this to attack monsters, Truly a wonderful Device )

Anyway what about the other guy? Where......... oh my!

Looking at the body of the Gallus, blood all over its feathers, slightly shaking as if finding it difficult to stand up.

and its eyes telling me as if it was ready to be killed.

"

Aria: " You've done your best. Its gonna be alright now.

As if the whole world was crashing down on it, the Gallus collapsed on the ground.

Aria: " No!!! Hang in there little one!

"

Picking up the body of the Gallus, I tried my best to keep it alive, covering its wound with the leaves that I had, and wrapping it all over.

Aria: " I hope this works.

And it did! the great forest leaf healed its wounds little by little.

* tring! *

[ notice ] you have gained a new stat

And with that, I have gained my first companion

After fully healing its wounds, I added all my stat points to int and used all skill points on my monster tamer skill.

walking down the road, I encountered a couple of more Gallus and fed them some berries that I got from the forest.

Which they greedily ate, and I added them to my army.

Having my own personnal army feels really good, although they may only be the size of an adult cat.

Its not always the size that matters, even if they are considered weak. With much training, I'm sure they will be able to achieve anything.

Plus! with the foraging skill that they have, I wont have any problems with getting food.

I can order them around to get whatever is available, such as nuts and berries.

"

"

Moving on our journey, as the sun was above my head. I noticed some movement in a nearby brush.

Aria: " Enemies!!!

Slowly coming out into the clearing was 2 young foxes and so I prepared for their attack.

Aria: " Stay behind me at all times. I'll take care of these two.

" Bek buk bekk beekek.

" Bek beuk bukbek.

"

I could sense the fear on my Gallus's, I needed to protect them until they gained a higher level. but for now.

Aria: " Come on! Bring it!!!

Using my battle experience from earlier, I figured that these foxes were no match for me, and so I tried taunting them to keep their attention from going to the gallus's

Foxes: " Grrrr.,, Growl! Grrrrrrr!!!

* tring! *

[ you have encountered x2 young fox ]

[ prepare for battle! ]

"

Wasting no time to act, I rushed towards the nearest young fox and bashed my terminal right on its head!

you have attacked young fox 1

-25 < lightning damage >

* tring! *

[ notice ]

to prevent Aria from damaging The Epitomy of Human Technology, the terminal has decided to provide you with a new skill.

you have recieved a new skill!

[ Lightning Bolt! ] creates a bolt of energy that jumps 5 times from 1 target to the next.

to acivate the skill, simply place your finger on the screen and write the corresponding < characters > pertaining to lightning bolt, once complete. gently swipe your finger across to the edge of the monitor, then point the same finger towards your target.

Aria: " What!? okay sounds easy enough.

Placing my finger on the monitor, I began writting the words of Power.

"

[ ~Writting~ ]



the wrath of the heavens, laying waste upon all that its hands touches! show them you rage! burn their skin, Let them feel fear!

"

"

"

Seeing the burnt up corpse of the two unfortunate test subjects, the amount of damage to the surrounding area, i wasn't able to react immediately.

The Gallus's after the battle ended started collecting the loot.

Aria: " Wow! did I just do that?

"

"

* tring! *

[ notice ]

The law of nature dictates that the strong shall live and the weak shall die.  The Gallus is at the bottom part of the food chain, and normally its impossible for them to live past level 1, but by taking them under your wing, giving them guidance and your protection, they have achieved  a higher rank!

[ Updating Monster Data ]

Evolution - Normally it takes thousands of years to achieve this feat but with your help it has become a reality!

Evolve Gallus to < Bird Of Prey >

[ Proceed? ] yes/no they will revert to level 1

"

"

"

Aria: " Yes!

[ Upgrading Gallus ]

[ Success! ]

Light Slowly covers the bodies of my Gallus's , a Strong Blue Light and a Strong White Light rotating faster and faster!
