.

- +180 to Strength, Dexterity, Vitality, Intelligence, Wisdom

- increase skills effects by 30%

.

Looking at my new power as a Demon Slayer, I can’t help but smile while thinking that with just my job even if I do not have any skills I would be able to defeat any players in the top ten ranking. I mean I’m so freaking strong against normal players. But when I think about the things I must endure to get to this level I can’t help but to cry, those hardships straight from hell that I endured, those times when I want to kill the old man and the times that I desperately trying to escape to only end up increasing my torture.

.

Well since I now have the ability to even rush towards a nearby city without dying. I'm already thinking about the possibility and where should I go first. The problem is, I do not have a copy or should I say I do not have a world map.

.

This is also one of the annoying features of this game. You need to buy maps from a player or an npc to gain a map of a certain place like dungeons and cities. Of course, what you can buy are only maps of the areas that are already explored. So, it’s impossible to have a detailed map of the whole world. Since I’m most likely far behind enemy lines the chance of getting a detailed map of the surrounding areas is close to none.

.

Without any concrete ideas on what step I should make I decided to log out and rest my brain since tomorrow is Thursday and Friday is a national holiday so I would get a three-day playing time.

.

.

.

.

Next day ~: Thursday :~

.

.

As usual I did my daily routine and go to school. The skies are bright the pleasant morning breeze can be felt through my skin and the birds chirping merrily in the morning. It’s a very normal day for me, if I don’t get this feeling being of being stared at.

.

I quickly look at my left side and I noticed that the people look away from me. I did the same on my right side but same thing happened.

.

There might be something sticking on my back so I tried to reach it but there was nothing there. Looking around at my body thinking that there might be something wrong and in the end, everything is normal so it’s only my imagination, right? RIGHT?

.

Walking towards the classroom, I never felt like this before even in my previous life. It’s embarrassing and made me anxious.

.

I do not know what's going on and I do not remember doing anything illegal. I grab my head and think hard, what in the world did I do to make a scene for myself.

.

When I reach my classroom I opened the door like always and everybody is looking at me but their stares are different from the usual and even though they knew I’m not the teacher they are still looking at me as if confirming something.

.

Walking towards my seat I can still feel their stares as if I’m some new student or a stranger that invaded the room.

.

"It's him right?"

.

"Definitely, the one who testifies knew his name"

.

"He's so brave not any one can do that"

.

"But what about her fans, will he get beaten up?"

.

..

..

..

.

Do they really think I can’t hear them whispering to each other? But what about me doing something brave?

.

Thinking hard about it, the only thing I can remember is that letter from Cely. Did I get exposed? If that's the case then I’m going to die soon.

.

Suddenly my anxiety shot towards the maximum limit and cold sweat began to appear on my back. Now the greatest question off all is 'what should I do now?’

.

Let’s see our options:

.

Option A: Be brave you’re a man so be a man and just ignore it.

.

Option B: Pretend to be sick and go to home

.

Option C: Find Cely and ask for forgiveness

.

Option D: Prepare for the worst

.

Looking at my options I really want to use my life line which is call a friend. Wait I forgot I DONT HAVE FRIENDS!.

.

Time passed and I still do not know which options to choose. The teacher already entered the class room and the class starts.

.

.

.

~Lunch Break~

.

.

It’s already lunch break but I still do not have any good idea on what should I do. Moving towards the cafeteria I still feel those sharp gazes of the crowd. I ordered my food then find an empty table and start eating.

.

"Is this seat free?"(???)

.

I look at the guy that is asking me. He has a normal face, not handsome, and not ugly. The guy has a slightly buff build and a head taller than me so he's probably an athlete or a body builder.

.

"Yeah, go ahead feel free"(Me)

.

"Thanks"(???)

.

He sits at the opposite side of the table and put down his tray of food which made my eyes almost pop out. It feels like an all you can eat meat buffet when you look at it.

.

"Is there something wrong?"(???)

.

He asked me when he noticed that I’m staring at his food.

.

"ah .. no ... nothing at all... its just that I’m surprised by the amount" (Me)

.

"Well I need a lot of protein to further increase my muscles. My aim is to become the national champion in judo" (???)

.

"You have a nice goal in life .... I hope you succeeded" (Me)

.

He smiled and nods repeatedly then he starts eating.

.

"By the way I'm James....... James Freeman ... year ** class ** judo club"(James)

.

Extending his right hand he introduced himself.

.

"I'm Stanley .... Stanley crux...... same year class ** go home club (Me)

.

James stares at me with a hint of surprise. It made me curious but I notice that he does not have any malicious intent coming from him and with all that happening around me I might know something from him.

.

“Oh you’re Stanley that legendary Stanley from class ** WOW I did not expect to meet the man from the rumors.” (James)

.

“Rumor what rumor?”(Me)

.

It’s something that I really want to know. The reason for those peoples stares towards me.

.

“You do not know?” (James)

.

“Would I ask if I know?”(Me)

.

“Oh! .... Sorry.... it’s just that .... It’s the hottest topic in our schools social media page.”(James)
.

“I never seen that site and I do not have an account for any particular social media site.”(Me)

.

“No wonder you would not know ..... It’s like this ....”(James)

.

He took his phone out and looks something with it then when he finds it, he showed it to me.

.

I saw a video clip being played and slowly my eyes become bigger with my mouth wide open.

.

Sorry, can’t help it because Never in my wildest dreams that this thing of all things will be caught on cam.

.

It’s a scene where you can see a boy suddenly confess his love to the girl he likes then ran away leaving the girl shocked. By the way it also includes the girl’s reaction in the end of the video as if it is a bonus.

.

“Shocking right?”(James)

.

“...”(Me)

.

“It’s going viral now. It appears that this video has been viewed by more than two hundred thousand times and counting. The whole school knows about it and the girls can’t help but gossip.” (James)

.

“What do you mean? Is it really that big of a deal?”(Me)

.

“NO SH*T bro! It’s like a scene straight out of a movie. The only difference is that this one is the real deal in a real life, it’s even in HD. That’s not all; even the person involved is even more amazing. It’s one of the school’s top beauties, the untouchable queen.

.

If Cely is the Ice-cold beauty which is also known as the ‘Executioner’; she is good at almost everything and slays thousands of men by rejecting their confessions then Lalaine is the unapproachable beauty. No one is brave enough to confess and just one look from her and you will feel as if you are in the deepest layer of hell. She is scary, everyone knows about it but a beauty is still a beauty and a lot of guys fall for her.

.

“By the way she also has a lot of diehard fans so be careful.”(James)

.

“....” (Me)

.

James keeps talking in an exited tone, as for me? My mind is now at the end of Milky Way galaxy not knowing what just happened. My random bull became so famous and now it is being treated as a reality.
