Reeling from his anger to the World Orb, he is getting tired and he wants to sleep. But there is still a few things he needs to do.

Ah name! He remembers.

The quest will have to postpone until later. He is still too weak. And he needs more strength. Agility is good and all, but strength is undoubtedly is equally important.

For now a name.

Then he remembers the notification. It display the chosen name. Then that means he could also choose another name.

It doesn’t mean he has to choose his real name.

Shadow Lord. Lord Shadow. It’s simple. It’s powerful. It sound like a good name and who says anyone has to name themselves the same name.

Azief never liked his name. There is a story of how he got his name.

‘I want to name myself’ and a voice sounded out

‘What is your name?’

‘Lord Shadow’

There was a silence for a while then the voice rings out in his ear.

‘Lord Shadow is registered. Congratulation for taking a name. As reward for completing this task, The World Orb will grant you 5 additional stats point.’

Then the voice disappears

5 additional stats points! Azief sighed in regret.

He should have named his character earlier. He might even survive the initial attack and maybe right now far away from Joy Park if he knows about this.

This World Orb is really annoying. It never told you everything. You have to found it by yourself. What a shitty game!

But at least he knows now where to spend these points. He just lost half of his strength. IF not for his item his strength could not be compared to before.

‘All to strength’ he decided unhesitatingly

And he feel stronger his muscle contracts and certain muscle is formed inside his body. A 4 pack? Something like that

But his strength still pales in comparison then before.

Anyway this is not yet time to rest. One last task. The skill books.7 of them. He smiles in glee imagining the power he would get.

He checks the first book.

SKILL BOOK: BODY FORTIFICATION

PASSIVE SKILLS. PERMANENTLY INCREASE ENDURANCE BY 2. AT LEVEL 20 IT WILL INCREASE BY 2 AGAIN.

AND THEN AT 30.UNTIL LEVEL 40.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEARN THE SKILL?

‘Yes’ Azief said and the book disappeared and his body feels stronger. A passive skill. That is what Azief need.

It doesn’t cost SP and enhances his stats.

One down six to go. He checks another one.

SKILL BOOK: HEAL

YOU CAN HEAL ABOUT 5 VITALITY POINTS FOR EACH USE. ACTIVATING COST 10 SP. COOL DOWN FOR 30 SECONDS.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEARN THE SKILL?

‘Yes’ Healing. Now at least my vitality can be healed by myself though it sacrifices SP a bit. And like before the book disappears and the information flows into his mind.

5 to go. Hope something more useful.

SKILL BOOK: BEAST TAMER

YOU CAN TAME THE WORLD ORB BEAST. TO TAME A BEAST, USE THE SKILL ON ONE OF THE BEAST AND KEEP HIM FOR THE INDICATED TIME TO TAME THE BEAST INSIDE THE BEAST PORTAL. ACTIVATING BEAST PORTAL REQUIRE 10 SP FOR EACH HOUR. THE COOL DOWN DEPENDED ON THE BEAST TAMED.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEARN THE SKILL?

Wait! Isn’t this Beast tamer? He already learned this before. Azief was about to try another but then a thought struck on him.

Why did the same book allows me to learn it again?

‘Yes’ Azief said curios of the results.

Then a ting sound can be heard inside his mind.

SKILL BOOK: BEAST TAMER LEVEL 02

YOU CAN TAME THE WORLD ORB BEAST. TO TAME A BEAST, USE THE SKILL ON ONE OF THE BEAST AND KEEP HIM FOR THE INDICATED TIME TO TAME THE BEAST INSIDE THE BEAST PORTAL.

ACTIVATING BEAST PORTAL REQUIRE 5 SP FOR EACH HOUR. THE COOL DOWN DEPENDED ON THE BEAST TAMED.

TAMING TIME: 1 WEEK

‘Hoh! It upgraded my taming time. It even reduces the SP used for taming.’ So, to upgrade skills you have to find the same book again.

A new discovery!

‘So, that is the way to level up skills. Or maybe there is another way.. Hmm. Azief is glad with the discovery he found.

4 more. Hope another beast tamer book. One week is reduced just by leveling to next level. If another one appears. Then maybe today I will have my own pet.

He looks at the next skill book with expectation.

SKILL BOOK: PRECISION

PASSIVE SKILL. HELP INCREASE YOUR ACCURACY. ATTAIN MINIMUM CAPABILITY OF AIMING THROWN PROJECTILES.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEARN THE SKILL?

‘Yes.’ Azief said listlessly. You can’t have everything. But precision is also good. After all if he has flying projectiles this passive skills will really help.

3 more. And this time.

Yes, an attacking skill.

SKILL: SLASHING WIND

ACTIVE SKILL. PRODUCED A SLASHING ENERGY DIRECTED AT YOUR OPPONENT. INCREASE YOUR STRENGTH BY 5 AND AGILITY BY 2 DURING ACTIVATION. LAST FOR 5 MINUTES

ACTIVATION COST: 15 SP

COOL DOWN: 10 MINUTE

Strength by 5. That would be an explosive power if released at the right moment. Azief mused, imaging himself fighting in a desperate battle and suddenly using this skill, taking his enemies completely off guard with his burst of energy.

There is still 2 more skill books.

SKILL BOOK: PERCEPTION

PASSIVE SKILL. COULD DETECT MUTATED SAPIENS WITHIN A DISTANCE OF A 100 METER. WILL FEEL A DISTURBANCE ONLY YOU CAN FEEL

WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEARN THE SKILL?

‘Yes.’ Azief said. This would be useful.

1 more.

SKILL BOOK : LIGHT STEPS

PASSIVE SKILL. INCREASE AGILITY BY 5. A VERY FAST MOVING SKILL MAKING YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE RIDING THE WIND.

USEFUL IN GETTING AWAY, IN JUMPING AND RUNNING. MAKING YOUR BODY LIGHTER LIKE THE CLOUDS, FAST LIKE THE WINDS.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEARN THIS SKILL?

‘Of course yes’ Azief said. Agility 5. Even with his current agility he is fast like an Olympic athlete.

Another five stats to his agility. Wouldn’t he run as fast as a car now, or at least comparable to a car?

Even the stiff would be left eating the dust if they decide to chase him.

Thinking about it, Azief might have underestimated the usefulness of agility. After all, if there is Superman then there is Flash.

Strength or speed? Having even one of them raised to the peak can also make someone very powerful.

The moment he said yes, the book disappeared and his feet feel lighter.

‘Now it’s done.’ He looks at the variety of items on the bed and stores all of it inside his storage rings.

There were boots, some blades, gloves and clothes. Azief intend to arm Tan tomorrow. With his speed, Azief is confident to outrun the stiff even when he is by himself.

Combined that with his strength as long he does not met some high level beast, he will be safe.

The quest also has one month expiration date.

It is enough for him to return to his home and then came back to fight the aliens. He knows without the unique class he could not be anyone in this chaotic world.

But that is a story for tomorrow he mused. Now he wants to sleep.

He unequipped all of his clothes and sleep half naked. It is hot and he could not stand it. And the process is equipping is easy.

Just think of it like Erza equipping herself with armours. Crashing his body to the comfortable puffy bed he immediately went to sleep after just five minutes.

Outside the zombies are still prowling the street, searching for any signs of life. Only Azief probably get a good night sleep that night.

And the moon slowly gets clouded by the clouds as darkness falls.
