David remembers when he got the perk The Time Clock to Armageddon. The name of the perk itself was self-explanatory. The second perk that David got was a perk called peeling eyes, as far as he could remember. When David read the name of the perk at that time, he didn't think about it much at that moment. But now as he was thinking, David didn't know what that perk did.

While lying on his hammock, David then opened his status window…


Status

Name- David Gonsalves 02:05:28:03:01:45

Rank of Host- Rank-1

K-13/13 D-12/13

Inventory-<Tap to expand>

Perks- <The Time Clock to Armageddon>


As David saw his status window, he was shocked to see that there are no perk named peeling eyes in his status window. Seeing this, David started to think that maybe this happened because he failed to stay alive after he got the perk.

As he got no extra perk, David felt dejected. If he knew that this kind of thing could happen that he would have tried harder in making sure that he does not die at the hands of Gupalo after he destroyed the shard. Remembering that time, David also understood that the Welcome Package that he got as a reward must also have been taken back because of his failure.

While lying on the hammock, David decided that he should from now onwards should make sure that he would only attempt a walkthrough when he is confident in his plan.

As David had his status window opened in front of him, he clicked on the inventory to see what items he had in there. As the black portal opened beside him, he touched the portal to get an idea of what he had stored in there…

He had around 4 short swords, 2 long swords, 2 black boxes, a bow but with no arrows, a crossbow with no more arrows, a mace, some clothes, some sheets, money, etc. David looked at all the stuff and understood, that his inventory was truly a very powerful ability. And he should use it to its fullest.

David then closed his inventory with his mind. It was time for him to sleep. David then closed his eyes…

But it was then David suddenly opened them once again. He opened his status window, and then his inventory. He checked once again and his suspicion were indeed true. While taking note of the things in the inventory, David came across 2 black boxes. But for some reason, he could not remember, when did he ever store such boxes in his inventory in the first place.

That is why he opened his inventory to check the boxes…

David took out one of the boxes. The box David conjured in his hands was a pitch-black box. It was a very small box that was approximately 4cm tall and 7cm wide. Looking at the exquisite-looking box, David was 100% sure that he didn't put that thing in his inventory. Or otherwise, he would have remembered putting it in…

David then opened the box…

The box was hosting two stones and a letter inside it. Both the stones were identical to each other and were circular. These stones were black and both of them had an eye carved on them. The carved eyes in stones were highlighted with gold color which gave those stones a mythical feeling.

David then looked at the letter that was inside the box. He quickly glance around to see whether someone was around him or not. As he made sure that no one was awake, he opened the letter and started reading it…


Name of the Perk- Peering Eyes

Description- Eyes laced with power to see to evaluate everything that it gazes at. The peering eyes have the power to grant the user the ability to see through the veil of reality and peer deep within. No mortal nor a thing could hide from these eyes…

How to equip- To equip the eyes, take the stones and put them on your eyes with your eyelid close. The stones will then automatically integrate with the host’s eyes.


Reading the letter, David became very happy. He was happy that he was able to get his hands on another perk. Although he didn't really quite understand what the letter meant by ‘seeing through the veil of reality.’ but he was happy nonetheless. He figured that he would figure out the usage of the perk eventually.

David then while lying picked up the stones and put them on his eyelid as the letter had instructed…

He waited for a few seconds for something to happen. But to his surprise, he felt nothing. Sensing that it was not working, David then moved his hands to pick up the stones from his eyes. But as it was then he felt that there were no stones on his eyes.

David abruptly got up and started looking around. He thought that stones must have fallen down. He started looking at the floor to see whether he could see stones lying in the dark. But to his surprise, he could not…

While looking around, David's eyes eventually landed on a sailor that was sleeping not too far away from him. David just glanced at the man, but it was then suddenly a blue color screen floating started floating above the body of the sailor...


Name- Ghun

Rank-<None>

Description-A normal sailor working for Captain Duffy.


Seeing the floating screen, David was astonished. He had never seen something like that before. David then looked at the rest of the sailors one by one. And sure enough, as David would glance at them, a similar screen from before would start appearing above their head.

David remembered the names of a few of the sailors and where they were sleeping. And according to what he knew, the information on the floating screens was indeed true.

David became very happy as he saw what this perk could do. This perk was essentially the answer to one of the biggest problems that he would face in his journey ahead. And that problem was the fact that he couldn't identify the marked human without touching them. But this perk changed everything. Now he only had to glance at his target and he would know whether the person is his target or not…

The only thing that confused David was Rank. He didn't know what it meant. He remembers that he has a rank-1. So what does the rank signify? David thought about it a lot. But it was then something clicked in his mind. He looked around the sailors once again. And it was then he spotted something.

David saw that all the sailors whether old or young, they have no Rank floating above their heads. With this information, David started thinking about what could the difference between Rank-1 and having no rank at all. And after thinking about it for some time, David made an assumption. And that assumption was that maybe Rank had something to do with being an awakened one…

David didn't know whether he was an awakened one or not. When he first met Gupalo, David felt a connection between him and the golden pin that he destroyed. According to that green monster, David was only able to feel the connection because it was a Mage’s artifact and Gupalo believed that David had awakened because of it.

David thought about that moment a lot. The connection he felt could have been because of The Wild System because the system was making David know that the pin itself was a thing of interest. Another theory that David thought about was the fact that David had gotten awakened. And the connection that he felt was because David could feel mana from the pin.

As David started thinking about both the theories, he understood that he don't have enough information, neither about the pin nor about being an awakened one. So he can't take any of his theories as a fact…

David then pushed aside all of his thoughts for now, after all, he had one more thing to take care of for now. With that David then opened his status window once again and opened his inventory once again. He then brought out the remaining box which looked and had exact dimensions like the previous box.

When David opened the box, he saw there was a white color transparent stone that was nicely stacked in the box. With the stone, there was a letter. David then started reading the letter…


Name- Seal Breaker

Description- The Seal Breaker is a stone that is embued with the power of heaven. It can break any kind of Runic Seal.

How to Use- Crush the stones with your hands to break the seal that is weighing down the body of a former resident of your body.


As David read the message, he was startled. This letter essentially saw that there was some kind of seal on his body. He didn't even feel any kind of seal on his body. Then what was this letter talking about?

But David didn't think about it much. He then took the stone and crushed the stones with his hands. After David had crushed the stone, David for a minute or two, but nothing happened. He tried to move his body and he found out that he didn't feel any different from before.

But it was then David started feeling something…

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

David started screaming like crazy as his body started falling apart…
