The Asura looks at the dead body of the mortals. He throws Azief heart to the ground while a scene of a woman wailing near the body could be seen.

It dropped to the ground cold hard blood spurting out from the heart.

Another woman looks at him with hatred.

He likes those gazes. Hatred. Despair. Anger. Even with its lower body disappeared he still manages to survive.

Even under Sina Condense Orb Burning he still manages to survive.

With only this it could be said that the power of this Asura was probably stronger than any monster anyone in the world right now have encounter.

Even if they do meet monster as powerful as the Asura, they would not fight them with a measly four people.

They would bring an army.

But what they didn’t know, bringing army will not make them able to reach the Sovereign Stage.

You have to risk more. Endure more. And thrive. Only then you could understand. Only then could you be rewarded.

Loki knows this. All the Seven Sovereign knows this.

And the one who first realized this was Azief. As the Asura look at Loki holding the Universe Orb the Asura dashed forward burning his own Orb and arrives in front of Loki.

Loki who was shocked because of what happens to Azief…was caught unprepared. He was caught by the Asura.

The Asura holding Loki neck said coldly.

‘Give me the Orb. And I will kill you quickly’

Loki reply…..by spitting on the face of the Asura.

‘Over my dead body.’ The Asura smiles mischievously and then he was about to snap the neck of this mortal when suddenly the heart on the ground turns into a mist of shadows.

And then a more shocking thing happens.

The body that the girl was holding turns into black mist and dissipated.

And then the Asura finally feel something is wrong. In his heart he could feel a great force is approaching when suddenly before he had even time to react a voice shouted from behind.

‘Explode!’ The moment this voice shouted, a sword pierces his head and his brain matter was vibrating inside and then turned into liquid because of the vibrational power that the attack possess.

He didn’t even have the time to turn his head back but he recognizes the voice and in his last moment he could not understand…how he could be so blind….and how he couldn’t see that attack coming

A Great Asura of the Danavas Faction dies here under the hand of a mortal.

On the other hand Sofia looking at that black figure, looking at that familiar back and looking at him again…it was like hope was ignited again inside her heart.

The already despairing Sina once again got up and her eyes shine. And Loki? It was like he gained the world.

Because the black figure is Azief…in the flesh. The world is not doomed! It still has hope! The Prince is alive and being alive…..the world still has hope.

Then a notification appears

FAME INCREASE BY 3000

THE GREAT ASURA SATRYA WAS FROM THE DANAVAS FACTION AND ONE OF THE SEVEN GREAT KILLING WORLD GENERAL AND FOLLOWS ASURA KING VRTRA. HE WAS PUNISHED BY THE ELDER OF THE UNIVERSE TO GUARD THE UNIVERSE ORB. CONGRATULATION IN KILLING HIM.

THE SIX WORLD EXTERMINATING SABER IS AVAILABLE. TO ACTIVATE ITS MAXIMUM POWER IT MUST BE BATHED WITH THE BLOOD OF THE OTHERWORLDLY RANK MONSTER. IT DEVOURS SOULS AND ABSORBS BLOOD. THE STRONGER THE SOUL, THE STRONGER THE SABER. THE MORE BLOOD IT ABSORBS, THE STRONGER THE SABER.

FOR THE ONE WHO HAVE KILLED THE GREAT ASURA SATRYA WILL GAIN HIS MOST PRIZED ABILITIES. EACH ASURA HAS THEIR RESPECTIVE DOMAINS, KNOWLEDGE AND ABILITIES. THE ABILITIES OF SATRYA ARE SABER EXPERTISE AND THE ABILITY OF FLIGHT. IN THE MYRIAD UNIVERSE, SATRYA COULD FLY THROUGH THE STARS AND UNIVERSES. HE WAS LIKE LIGHTNING AND HIS FLYING SPEED IS ONE OF HIS MOST POWERFUL WEAPONS. TRAVERSING THE STARS THE POWER OF FLIGHT OF SATRYA ALSO ENABLES HIM TO CONTROL THE VERY LAW OF GRAVITY AROUND HIM ENABLING HIM TO FLY IN ANY UNIVERSE. HIS SABER EXPERTISE WAS ALSO CONSIDERED ONE OF HIS GREATEST EXPERTISE. CREATING A SPATIAL RIFT WITH THE SLASH OF HIS SABER, HE REIGN SUPREME IN THE WAR OF SOMA.

Then as this notification appears Azief could see six sabers gleaming with blood red color appeared near him.

This saber is different than the saber the Asura used before. This must be his real weapons. He mused.

And each saber has an inscription.

The first saber has the inscription MASTERING OTHERS IS STRENGTH; MASTERING YOURSELF IS TRUE POWER, WITH ONE SLASH RENDERING THE HEAVEN APART

The second saber has the inscription CHANGES ARE COMMON, DON’T RESIST IT. LET THINGS FLOW NATURALLY. UNLOCKING THE SECRET OF THE BODIES, WITH ONE SLASH SEVER THE COVETOUS HEART.

The third saber has the inscription ONE SLASH TO SHATTER THE STARS, WORLDS CLEAVED TO HALF, DO NOT RESTRAIN THE HEART, WITH ONE LEAP SOAR THROUGH THE STARS UNHINDERED, WITH ONE SLASH RENDER WORLDS APART.

The fourth saber has the inscription THE SKY AS CHESSBOARD, THE STARS ARE IT PIECES, GODS DO NOT CARE ABOUT MORTAL LIVE, CAREFREE ROAMING THE UNIVERSE. WITH ONE SLASH, CUT APART WORLDLY CONCERNS.

The fifth saber has the inscription SLASHING REALITIES APART, OVERTURNING FATES AND DESTINY, WITH ONE SLASH RENDER TIME IMMOBILE, SUNDER FATE AND DESTINY

The sixth saber has the inscription WITH ONE SLASH, DRIVING GODS AND DEVILS AWAY. STRUGGLE WITH FATE, KIND NATURE MUST BE CULTIVATED, WITH ONE SLASH CUTTING APART EXISTENCE.

Each one of the saber was beautiful and Azief didn’t even know how he understand to red it. He chalks it up to the translating abilities of the World Orb.

Then another notification appears as his level rose up by one level. Finally his level rose up as he only on a verge of level 50. His body was full of attributes power.

The gold he got was also numerous.

He looks at the saber and smiles. He could feel the imposing aura of each saber. He then arranges the saber and then he realizes something else. That it can be read in another way.

BECOME THE SOVEREIGN, HEAVEN WILL BE SUNDERED, LET THE HEART COVETS, SHATTER FATE AND DESTINY, RENDER THE SKY OF SHURA APART, LET THE STARS OF THE UNIVERSE BE FREE, LET REALITIES BE ILLUSION, LET ILLUSION BECOMES REALITIES, KIND NATURE MUST BE SEVERED, LET THE ASURA AWAKENS.

It was then that Azief realizes something. Be a Shura. Or be an Asura. Be the Gods. Or be the Devil. Does Shura always do good? Does Asura always do evil?

Power is power.

He picked it up and feeling the malevolent energy of the sabers, he has half a mind to just let the saber lie there but then he decided to put it inside his bag of holding.

Loki on the other hand come and hugged Azief…which he failed to do because Sofia hugged Azief first, embracing him tightly.

Then she hit him on the chest.

‘I thought you were dead!’ She yells at him, tears streaming down her face.

Azief look at her and feel that she is very cute. He then rubs her hair and said.

‘I’m not that easy to kill’ with his disarming smirk Sofia really wanted to wipe out that smirk from his face but she was just happy he was safe.

She buried her face on his chest.

Tears still streaming down her eyes like a flood.  And the sound of muffled sobs could be heard.

‘Let me look at you’ Azief said smiling as he tries to make her look up. But she shakes her head.

‘Why?’ Azief ask.

‘I look ugly.’ Azief just smile and did not say anything. He just let her cries onto his shirt. And he keeps rubbing her hair. Sian on the other hand just smiles looking at the blushing Sofia, looking like a docile cat.

It was then that a cough sounded from behind them

‘Ehem. Are you shooting a movie here?’ Loki said sounding annoyed. Sofia startled and embarrassed quickly release herself from Azief.

Sina chuckles from behind and shows a thumbs up to Sofia which only make her blush more.

Then Loki hugged Azief.

‘Man, I really thought you were done for good.’

Azief just smiles and said.

‘Do you think you’re the only one with a plan?’

Sina on the other hand look at Azief direction and she nodded. Azief smiles and also nodded.

‘How did you do it’ Loki said as he releases Azief from his hug.

‘Shadow Manipulation.’ Like that explain everything. Loki mused.

‘When I told you to leave, you should just leave. Not I don’t appreciate the assist’ Azief said as he looked at Sina.

Sina just bitterly smiles.

‘Then…..that person before…’ Loki ask as he looked at the already destroyed temple which is till now keep burning

‘It was me…but also not me. It has all my memories and believes that it was me because I put my consciousness inside it while my true body was hiding behind that large block of rock. It is a magical ability Shadow Manipulation. I was there and at the same time I was not there. I was fighting the Asura and at the same time I’m not. I don’t know how to explain it to you.’ Azief said while scratching his head.

Not to mention he also felt everything his Shadow Self was feeling. Azief rips apart his own shadow to create the Shadow Clones.

During his separation with his Shadow self, Azief also realizes that he has no shadows.

‘Unlike Sina I can’t control my Shadow Clones and at the same time remains conscious. It was not a true self but me….only in different avatars. Not to mention it consumes a lot of energy to use skill in that form. I heard everything you were planning but at the same time I could not move my true body while my shadows fought the Asura. I see everything from my clones, and I even feel all the pain.’

Loki nodded in understanding

‘When did you switch?’ Loki ask.

‘When I was entering the temple the second time.’

‘So, from that moment you….’

‘I was waiting. Waiting for the right moment. And the stupid it is, he exposed himself. Who would have thought his dead would be that anticlimactic.’ Azief said looking at the half body of the Asura

‘Anyway it’s good that you are safe. What now?’

‘Now…..’and there is a grin on Azief face a she said.

‘Now…we loot!’

**************************************************************************

First they looted the Asura. The Asura doesn’t have any armour. He doesn’t have any weapons other than the six sabers.

The only one that reaps the real benefit was Azief.

Usually the distribution will be spread among them but the possession of the saber was unanimously decided to belong to Azief.

After all, Azief did fight the Asura the most. If it was any other person, they would not last as long as him

Sian on the other hand find a way to make the best of her current situations by taking the Asura, blood, livers, skins ,eyes and heart.

She scalped the corpse of the Asura clean by dissecting any parts of the Asura she deemed important even his reproductive organs.

Sian has been talking about trying to make an aphrodisiac in which she can use it towards her enemies.

Her thinking is very sly and naughty. One could see that she can’t stop smirking thinking about it.

When asked what she will do with the ingredient she only smiles creepily.

Loki on the hand wanted to check the Golden Water from the Floating Well. Loki could feel an ancient magic flowing in the Floating Well so he is eager to examine the water.

But they needed to wait until the fire in the temple died down.

Sofia discovered that they can already teleport out from the dungeon and there is a teleportation pillars that sprouted from the ground after Azief defeated the Asura.

By now, all of Azief group has broken through level 40 except Sian who is now on the verge of breaking through.

They could be said, to be the most elite group in the world right now and not only that but also a few people who is sitting on the peak of the mountains.

Because not many people have reached level 40 right now in the world. Azief also on the verge of breaking through level 50.

He has been constantly raking on EXP points and experiencing life threatening battle and fighting monsters beyond his capabilities which is why he is raking on the EXP points.

The reason why his group is so powerful is because they are all Orb Condensing stage user, the exception being Sina

Level 40 user is blessed with the power of attributes and can crack and even shatter a person pillars just by screaming with attributes infused energy.

This is true regarding Azief who possesses a Perfect Orb. Other may pressure Pillars. Other may crack pillars.

But Perfect Orb shatters pillars. Given enough pressure by a Perfect Orb, the sturdy pillar is like dust blown by the wind.

Sian on the other hand is still Azief most valuable group member especially after she leveled up now.

She also has many skill points and new recipe for alchemy. She even brag that she can now bring back people to life.

The One Sun Reviving Pill. That is one of the new alchemy recipe she has learned. Only the ingredient to create the One Sun Reviving Pill is very hard to find.

She said that the pill also only work under certain circumstances. First, the people who wanted to use that pill must not die under 24 hours.

Second, their body is intact. Third, the energy essence inside their body must not yet dissipate.

It is not a true revival pill like in the game and once consumed the level will drop to half. But considering that you got another life, it would be a no brainer.

While they were resting on the fifth floor Azief like usual brew his coffee. When he tasted his own coffee, he released a very satisfied expression.

His coffee making skill is probably his most adept skills and no one in the world could probably match his prowess with brewing powerful and delicious coffee.

Once you tasted it, you will be addicted.

It also restores Azief energy, calm his mind and give him the ability to think clearly. Seeing their relaxed expression one could not believe that just a few hours ago, this group fights an epic battle there.

If not for the flaming ruins of the temple, one might not even suspect it.

Loki even has the time to take a light nap. Sina pop open a book and start reading lazing on the comforter that was laid near the walls of the cave.

Sofia on the other hand is practicing with her attributes. Every few second a sound of sound wave erupted near her.

Her attributes as of now is the attributes of wind. When she released one of her arrows it was like her arrows produce a pulsating vortex in its tips.

Not only the destructive power increases, the speed also show rapid improvement. Not to mention the accuracy and the way Sofia could now control the angle of her arrows.

There is also the attributes of speed. Azief did not have this attributes and do not know how to instruct or guide Sofia.

So, he just contemplates about what he can do to help his fellow group members when Loki came to him, his face still have some dry saliva because of his light napping..

Loki sits beside Azief and Azief said quite disgusted.

‘Wash your face.’

‘Later’ he said.

Then as he sat beside Azief Loki said with a serious expression

‘I have a confession to make’ he said suddenly. The strange thing is his voice was loud….strangely loud….like he is trying to inform someone.

It was then that Azief realizes that the look on Sian and Sofia face changes. So, he was trying to inform those two Azief mused. But then he feel something else.

Unease. Why did Loki want to inform those two? Now this question is pooping inside his mind.

‘What…confession?’

‘I lied about the Universe Orb.’ Loki said nonchalantly while twiddling his fingers

‘What do you mean?’ Azief ask as his face is lowly morphing into someone that was about to burst out in anger

‘ Whoa. Calm down, bro. I said it was an unbound Artifact right?’ Loki said while patting Azief back not knowing that h is just making Azief angrier.

‘Right. And?’ Azief asked as he could already sense something from the way Loki is speaking.

‘Well, it is actually a blood Bound Artifact.’ He anticipated the answer but he is startled and his mind is trying to think why Loki was lying to him about that one particular details.

And why confess now…..when the Orb is already in his hand.

If he wanted to run then he should have been able to run when the Teleportation ban was lifted.

Still, Loki follows him inside the ruin where if Azief wanted to capture him it would be as easy taking a candy from a baby

‘What?’ Azief said puzzled with Loki behavior and then he look coldly at Loki.

‘Then why did you lie?’ All the time Azief was looking at any suspicious behavior or anything indicated that Loki want to run with the Orb still with him

‘Because I need you to get the Orb. If I said it was Blood Bound artifact from the very beginning you might not want to follow me into the dungeon. You might even think that I am plotting against you.’ Loki explained while showing no sign of nervousness or any indication that he wanted to run

‘Isn’t this considered to be plotting against me? Who would then receive this artifact?’ Azief ask threateningly.

He did after all do the most heavy lifting. And once again he needs to rethink back whether he should trust this little trickster.

‘Of course you’ Loki said smiling as he bring something out from his bag of holding. It was the Orb.

Loki handed the Orb to Azief and Azief awkwardly took it and then look at Loki smiling face.

But Azief is not fond of Loki smiles right now. He wanted to wipe out that smile from Loki face because now to him Loki smiles look very annoying.

‘Why?’ Azief ask. He has always been feeling strange about this Loki.

Sometimes Loki treats him like an old friend and all the time, Loki has been helping him and worried the most about him.

But Azief did not know of anyone from Norway.

And surely this is the first time he met Loki. Azief even thought that Loki like him or something.

But from the way Loki is treating him it was more like Loki is acting like his bodyguard. And that has always puzzled Azief.

‘Why what?’

‘Why do you want me to gain the artifact? I have ben racking my brain but I could not find any logical answer on why would you help me this much. What are you not telling me?’ Azief ask as he looks at Loki suspiciously

‘To tell you the truth, there is only one thing I need from you. I need you to become stronger. As for what I’m not telling you? Think of it this way. I’m never going to tell you everything.’

For a while they stare at each other. Then Azief sighs.

To him, Loki house a lot of secrets. But Azief has decided as long as that secret does not harm him, he could still trust Loki.

But still…Azief could not help but feel wary towards Loki. Knowing that there is something he doesn’t know.

In his group the only one that is transparent is Sofia.

The others all have their secrets. For example Sina. That girl rarely shares about the extent of her abilities.

Loki on the other hand has always been this mysterious dude who knows a lot of things.

For example that the blue beings was called Asura. Artifacts. Trivial knowledge about monster.

Then Azief look at Sinan and Sofia and then looking back at Loki and he said.

‘They know about this?’

‘Hmm.’

And they agree for me to gain the passion of that artifact?’ Azief ask

‘Hmm’ Loki replied while nodding his head

‘What will be they doing when I’m inside the Orb?’ Azief ask. Azief quickly understand that if this is a Blood Bound Artifact then only one person can use it.

That means he was the only one who will enter the Universe Orb.

If that is the case, he could not ask his group to wait here. They must have a plan on what to do since they have agreed with each other.

Loki then said.

‘Sofia wanted to follow me on a quest. She seem very excited’

‘What quest?’ Loki was about to answer when Sofia yelled.

‘Shut up Loki! It’s none of his business. Tell him to just wait for me!’ She yelled from a distance.

After breaking through level 40 her hearing is more sensitive. Loki nodded and smiles as he turn back and said to Azief

‘You heard the lady. I’m not telling.’

‘It might be dangerous.’ Azief said expressing his concerns for Sofia safety

‘Everything is dangerous now.’ Loki reply like it was not his problem.

‘Sina?’ Azief ask.

‘She wanted to collect some ingredient and don’t worry’ Loki quickly said as he could see Azief is full of concern.

‘I’ll take care of them both. To the best of my ability. And you should trust them a bit you know? They are not dead weight. Sina could handle herself well, and Sofia is a great archer.’

Azief nodded. He had to admit Loki was right.

‘Then….we’ll meet here four months later.’ Azief said as he look around the dungeon

‘Well, what’s left of it anyway. This dungeon will collapse after you mark the Orb. The same happen to me when I take my artifact.’ Loki explains

‘You mean….’

‘The next time we meet’ Loki said.

‘It will be on top of this dungeon ruins.’

Azief smiles and looking at his group he feel a little pride in his heart.

They waited another hour when finally the fire died down and they began entering the ruins of the temple.

They slowly entered and then they stumbled onto a charred body. It was Sian body.

‘This is weird’ Azief said. Sina was looking at her own charred bodies. She smiles bitterly. She then look at Loki and said.

‘You owe me one.’ Loki just nodded.

She then approached the body and then put her hand on the body and slowly the charred body morphed into a giant badger and then it was absorbed into Sian body.

Sian collapsed to the ground, her forehead was sweating and one could see that she is enduring an invisible pain.

‘Burning myself was not a good idea. Next time, I will find a better way to die’ she then said after a few minutes.

Sofia was besides Sina rubbing her back.

She then got up

I’m fine. Let’s keep going. Azief lead forward and Sofia follows behind him. Loki then walk beside Sian and said.

‘I’m sorry back then.’ Loki said apologetically. Sian just maintains her silence.

‘I’ll make it up to you.’ And Sian smiles a bit. Loki also feels a little bit better.

Then they reach the altar. Even though the whole temple has already been destroyed, the altar remains.

The floating well remains. And the golden water remains.

Azief then approached the altar and touch the golden water and then a notification appears.

THE GOLDEN WATER OF THE SHURA PALACE GIFT THE DRINKER BONES AS TOUGH AS DIAMOND, INTERNAL ORGANS LIKE STEEL, AND INCREASED THE DRINKER STRENGTH BY TEN TIMES. IT WILL ALSO HELP HEALING FACTOR BY TEN TIMES.

Azief was excited. Loki and the others also examine the water rand when the notification appears they all look at each other like they truck gold.

Quickly Sian collects the liquid inside a flask and each one takes a sip. They immediately felt that their bodies are burning but was quickly follows with a soothing sensation.

They could feel the strength coursing through their veins. Azief punch on the air and it was like the air cracked.

A gust of wind was shot out from his hand and shake the cave when Azief fist force slam the cave roof.

It was not even half of Azief full strength and his power is already formidable. This will help Sian and Loki immensely since their endurance and strength is the weakest in the group. Even after drinking the water, Loki full strength is equal to only Azief strength when he was level 30 and Sian is equal to level 28 Azief.

When they drink it for the second time they realized that their strength did not increase again.

It was a one-time consumption only.

Well, come to think of it that was logical. If not, then just by drinking this all the time they surely would be the most strongest existence in the world.

But Sian discovers while the Golden Water could not raise their strength again, she could use it to refine a more potent recovery pill and it even could be used as a substitute for one of the ingredients in the One Sun reviving pill.

Then after finish distributing enough of that liquid to each member of the group they all look at Azief as he was about to mark the Orb.

Azief then mark the orb under the gaze of his group member and then he looked toward his group. They all looked at him. Sina then said.

‘See you four month later.’ Sina said awkwardly. Azief just smiles and nodded.

‘Ah, come on Sina. Hug the damn guy. So awkward’ Loki said as he scolded Sina.

Sian sheepishly come to Azief and then hugged him. Azief hugged her back. Sian then said as she release her hug

‘Be careful in there.’ Azief nodded again. Then it was Sofia turn as she gently hugs him. It was a long hug. She did not say anything.

Just hugging him  tightly.

She leans her head on his shoulder and Azief could smell her hair. Azief couldn’t understand how her hair could smell so good.

Did everyone who breaks though only have good odor? Azief also feel his heart beating fast. Sofia looks more beautiful than she did before.

And she was almost as tall as him. Her hair was long and silky, straight like a shampoo commercial.

Her face is flawless and there is some charismatic aura about her right now.

Then she release her hug and stares at Azief eyes.

‘Don’t get hurt’ she said barely a whisper. Then it was Loki turns as he hugged Azief in one second and quickly release him.

‘I’m not that fond of you. Not like her. I don’t want her to misunderstand’ as Loki pointed his finger to Sofia and was quickly glared by Sofia. Azief chuckles.

Then Loki turns serious as he said.

‘Don’t get attached in there. It is not your world.’ he said.

Azief realizes that Loki was serious and he just nodded.

‘Then, I’m going now, you guys. They all nodded and then Azief will himself to enter the orb and then he disappears inside the orb as the orb also disappears.

Loki looking at this release a sigh. The Prince journey has begun. One step to the future. Sofia and Sina look at him.

‘So, now?’ They both ask.

‘Now’ and Loki was smiling mischievously as he answered.

‘Now, let’s get you a bow.’

*************************************************************************

AS REWARD FOR KILLING THE ASURA, DURATION OF TIME TO STAY IN THIS WORLD HAS BEEN EXTENDED. FOR EACH TEN LEVEL ONE YEAR IS GIVEN. CONSIDERING THE LEVEL OF THE OWNER OF THE UNIVERSE ORB, THE DURATION OF TIME TO STAY IN THIS WORLD IS FOUR YEARS AND NINE MONTHS. ONE YEAR IS EQUAL TO ONE MONTH IN THE EARTH PRIME. NOW PLEASE RENAME THIS NEW WORLD YOU ABOUT TO ENTER.

Azief was standing in what he called the interface screen. He was floating in the vastness of the stars.

‘Earth 2’ Azief said.

THIS WORLD HAS BEEN DESIGNATED EARTH 2.

Then another notification appears.

REPUTATION: 0

DEEDS:                        0

TO OPEN NEW WORLD ONE NEEDS TO ACCUMULATE ONE MILLION REPUTATION TO EXCHANGE IT TO WORLD OPENING TOKEN.

DEEDS ARE USED TO BUY THE MANY THINGS INSIDE THE UNIVERSE STORE. FAME CAN ALSO BE EXCHANGED TO DEEDS. WILL YOU EXCHANGE THE FAME FOR DEEDS?

Azief answers no. He still doesn’t know what is in the Universe Store so he will see later and decide later.

Then the voice speaks again.

WILL YOU ENTER EARTH 2 NOW? THE MOMENT YOU ENTER, YOU COULD NOT LEAVE UNTIL THE TIME IS UP. FOR EACH TIME YOU USE THE UNIVERSE ORB THERE WILL BE A COOL DOWN.

‘Enter’ Azief said and as he said this it was like the stars pass him by as he was suck into a portal and then he arrived at the centre of a street.

The first thing he hears was screams. The first thing he smell was fire. The first thing he felt was chaos

It was clearly morning. About 10a m. In front of Azief now is stars. Star falling down from the sky. It falls and wrecks the city, buildings burning and collapsing

Azief could see many Caucasian.

Matte charcoal black uncontrollably covered in thousands and millions of bright specks. Star, after star, after star, a never ending falling stars spelling humanity doom.

Below, the big city can just be seen, its city shopping malls, skyscraper that touches the sky, dissolving down into fire.

The people running and screaming.

Then a notification appear.

IN THIS WORLD, YOUR BODY WILL EXPERIENCE GREAT STRENGTH. THIS WORLD ENVIRONMENT IS VERY CONDUCIVE FOR THE OWNER DEVELOPMENT.

QUEST

SAVE EARTH 2 FROM THE METEOR ATTACK.

REWARD

TEN THOUSAND REPUTATIONS

TEN THOUSAND DEEDS.

FAILURE CONDITION: RUNNING AWAY FROM THE SCENE AND NOT HELPING THE CIVILIANS.

It was then that Azief could see a more shocking scene. A few people were sucked into a black hole appearing on the clouds above his head.

‘A singularity’ Azief said.

Then Azief saw a huge gigantic meteor is hurtling down to this city.

Azief was thinking should he just run away and not accept this quest? After all that meteor is so big that Azief is not confident he could stop it.

As he was contemplating this the gigantic meteor was sucked into the singularity and the only meteor left was the small meteor.

Well, when Azief said it was small, it was small for him. The small meteoroid he said was as big as a football field.

But to Azief this is not that big. Azief look at his surrounding and saw people turned to light and disappear into the portal.

But it did not do that to everyone else.

‘What is this?’ Azief said. All around him people is running and screaming.

Nearby he could see a large building name Vega Corp suddenly disappear into the singularity.

There is also Brave World Virtual Reality center nearby that Vega Corp building also turn into a ball of light and disappeared.

‘Yes’ Azief said as he agree with the quest

Then Azief smiles as he launched himself into the air and….fly to the meteors that is hurtling down to earth.

On the ground, people who was running, people who was screaming, people who was panicking, people who was spreading anarchy all stop and look at this most miraculous and shocking scene.

It is common sense that people do not fly. But now, they see a flying man. One of the people in the crowd then asks.

‘Is that a…plane?’

‘A bird?’ Another asks.

‘It is a….man’ one of the women who stumbled and fall because of the chaos said as she stand up.

Those that falls and stumble, they all slowly get up. And then….they looks up. Look up at the back of the flying man and for some reason they feel reassured.

They then watched as the man punch a meteor and the meteor shattered into tiny pieces.

‘He….is flying’ One of the people in the crowd said

‘His punch is like steel.’ Another added

‘He destroyed the meteor in one punch.’ One of them excitedly said

Then a young boy looking at this scene said in gasping breath.

‘A superhero.’ Slowly, the running stops. The screaming stops. The panicking stop as the crowd look at the flying man destroying the meteor.

Even the anarchy stop.

One of the reporters of the New York Daily News quickly takes a picture while some of the reporter began recording this scene.

One of the director of the program who was running just a few minutes ago after the first meteor fall then said

‘What should we call him?’

‘Man of Steel?’ One of the people nearby suggested.

‘No, no.’ One of the other people in the crowd said.

‘Look at his attire. It was black. Call him the Dark Knight.’

Because of the many suggestions the PD then yelled for them to shut up.

‘Just record the damn thing.’ Hope was ignited again in the heart of the people in Earth 2.

All the while Azief was flying around in the sky destroying meteor with each punch and smiling as he looked at his reputation and deed section quickly and rapidly increasing.

This was his first day in Earth 2.
