Looking in the distance he doesn’t see any threats that are coming to his way. Destroy the biggest threat first. He decided

There are many zombies but they are slow, and they do not seem to possess any coordination.

Anyone with a stick could fend them off.

‘Be brave’ he said to himself. His hand is sweating because of fear. Azief quickly jumps onto the debris and arrived near the Badger.

The badger’s breath stinks, and each time it exhales, a gust of wind appear from his nostril. One of the smarter badgers is trying to drill its way out of the debris. Another one is heavily wounded, blood seeping from its wound.

You think I’m going to let you do that! Azief thought to himself, and he stabs the Badger. Blood flows out from the stab wound.

But it is not enough.

So Azief stabs it again. And again. And again. Repeatedly he stabbed, and Azief his stamina is draining and finally when his stamina is at three the shrieking and the scrambling Badger died, and a light shone down on him.

YOU HAVE ADVANCED TO LEVEL 05. YOU HAVE EARNED 6 STATS POINTS.

3 level ups! This Badger gives a lot of experiences. He smiles in satisfaction

‘Hu. Hu’ Azief is taking his breath. It took almost all of his stamina just to kill one Badger, and another badger is beginning to dig.

Not one of these Badgers can be allowed to escape. If not, the consequences will be disastrous. In Azief mind, a Badger card appears.

THE STRONG FIST BADGER.

A skill book appears, and golden coins are all around the Badger corpse. Quickly Azief takes it all and put it in his pocket.

The book is small, so he just put it in the pocket.

‘All to stamina’ Azief said, and he feels his body is getting rejuvenated.

Then he jumped to the part of the debris and stabbed quickly on the back of the head of the badger.

CRITICAL HIT: DOUBLE DAMAGE

Oh, so like in a game, there are critical hits. Smiling now knowing that the Badger neck area is a critical point, Azief keeps stabbing it and blood flowed around it while the badger is struggling to get out.

And after another ten strikes to its neck, it died with a whimper. This time Azief still has eight stamina.

This time a skill book appears with the golden coin.

‘Another skill book. What a bountiful beast you are.’ He exclaimed

YOU HAVE ADVANCED TO LEVEL 8. YOU HAVE EARNED 6 STATS POINTS.

Another three level up. In normal circumstances, killing these badgers might be an impossibility at his current level, and he was doomed to die.

After all, it takes more than ten strikes to make one badger fall to the ground. He needed to have greater strength and a lot of agility if he was fighting these Badgers in a fair ground.

Who would have thought he would encounter such luck! Trapped under the debris with nowhere to go while he repeatedly stabs the Badgers’ neck area.

Now only one left, this one Badger is badly injured, one of its claws was broken. Azief was about to stab its neck when he remembered something.

Smiling he then said.

‘All 6 to Spirit.’ His body is full of vigour and power course through his vein, and his eyes become clearer.

Then he quickly activated the Beast Tamer skills. The information flowed into Azief mind, and he then understands what he needs to do.

He approached the wounded badger and touched the Badger, and a seal appears on the badger forehead.

The seal was shaped like an Orb. Then a voice enters his ears.

YOU HAVE USED THE BEAST TAMER SKILL. ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO USE IT ON THIS BEAST?

‘Yes’ Azief reply.

Then the beast turned into an orb of light and a portal open and it’s shot through inside the portal.

TAMING TIME: TWO WEEKS.

What! Seeing this Azief is clearly shocked. Two weeks! It requires 10 SP every hour, and it will drain Azief SP right now.

Now Azief SP is 7.

Another hour it will drain another 10 of course at that time his SP will rejuvenate only to then supplement the taming process, but then that means for two weeks he would not be able to use his SP for anything other than taming the Badger.

He was about to curse, but then he remembered.

The badger is surely strong that is why the waiting time is long. He also remembers the scene where the badger is destroying the structure.

Having a beast like that under his commands, he will at least be saved from anything weaker than the badger.

It surely will help his survival in this new world.

When the information flowed inside his mind, he also understands how beast taming works.

If the beast is stronger than you, beast taming will not work. But then how is he able to make sure that badger will obey him to enter the Beast Portal?

Because at that time the badger is weaker than him, wounded, it will is low due to seeing its comrade dies and trapped under the debris.

It is kind of like Pokemon, and the seal is like pokeballs. If the Pokemon is weak after fighting it, touching it, the seals will appear if they are weaker than you.

If not they will struggle and be release from the taming processes.

While Azief was thinking of this, he doesn’t notice a zombie has managed to crawl out the debris and heading slowly to him.

The zombie is crawling since his lower body has been crushed leaving only his upper body dragging his innards

‘Uargh’ a zombie appears while groaning like zombies do, grabbing Azief ankle when it saw the human standing on top of the debris, trying to eat him.

Azief who is startled by this sudden touching (he really doesn’t like to be touch without proper warning) began saying curse word,

‘Fuck! What the hell! Fuck!’ as he kicks the half body zombie head.

And the zombie’s hand release its grip from Azief ankle, tooth dribble out from his mouth, his jaw dislocated, black blood mixed with red blood flowed from the zombie jaw.

‘Fuck, that zombie humiliates me.’ Azief using the dagger stab the zombie head with frustration and humiliation.

And this time a ring appear and the golden coins. He quickly grabbed it and was about to examine it when he notices the hundreds of zombie is crawling out.

‘This stiff. Oh, fuck! More of them stiff.’

He looks at the incoming horde. He then takes a deep breath and smiles coldly, a hint of greed in his eyes.

‘Ok. No pain no gain. Only the strong survives the weak perish.’ he then said smiling.

He out of everyone understands these rules better than anyone and quickly accepted the rules of this new world.

It is his ability to adapt to situations like these mostly because it is the kind of situations he has been dreaming of.

Ok, maybe not the people turning to zombie part, or the giant beasts eating people, but he did fantasise living in a kind of game world, or fantasy world and who wouldn’t?

At least it is more interesting than the world he is living now.

Working hard doesn’t guarantee that you’re going to have a great life, it guarantees you to be a worker of some crazed millionaire or a greedy entrepreneur disguised as a great philanthropist when all the businessman only wanted is the tax break when throwing their towel onto the ring of charity.

At least now, he gets the reward according to his effort. It still requires some luck too.

‘You’re all going to die…..again’ He said smiling coldly to the crawling zombies coming out of the debris.

And he began his killing spree. Having only Half of a body, the zombie is just a fish getting ready to be chopped.

Azief stab all the zombies head. The baby zombies, the woman zombies, the granny zombies, the MILF zombies, the glasses zombies, he saw them as nothing more than corpses.

Most people wouldn’t have his heart to kill a baby. Even though it is a zombie, it still looks like a baby even though there is a large chunk of meat missing from the baby arms.

But Azief?

He just kicks the baby zombie head like striking a football and the head splattered into droplets of red liquid.

He stomps, kicks, punches, and stabs while dodging the blood and the bites. He knows now if you are bitten you will become one of them, but he doesn’t know about the effect of the blood, so he takes precaution not to get any on him.

Of course, there are some splatter drops on him, but at least he was not drenched in it.

His luck is amazing. Just a minute ago he was praying and accepting his death, and now he is diligently stabbing zombie’s heads.

YOU HAVE ADVANCED TO LEVEL 9. YOU HAVE EARNED 2 STATS POINTS.

This time Azief decided to reinforce his agility.

‘All to agility.’ He needs to be faster, both in reaction and before the other zombies nearby is alerted to his killing spree.

He feels his feet are getting faster and lighter. Then he realises something else. His stamina is also steadily declining.

But sometimes these zombies drop some vial like glass. Killing about 5 of them, Azief realises something after drinking the vials.

The blue vials restore his stamina, the red one his vitality. Right now he already has two blue vials.

He doesn’t have time to check its information, but he understands the concept. Potions. He works in a cyber café how could he of all people not understand potions?

Playing Skyrim, Oblivion and fantasy genre adventure games, potions are one of the most integral parts of any quest.

It restores health, grant strength and many other supportive functions. It is like a doctor in a box…or vials…or glass, depending on the game.

And Azief keeps stabbing all those poor zombies stuck under the debris.

Azief would find a hole, and when he hears the groaning sound, he will target that area finding the right moment to stab the zombie’s head.

Each strike at the head gives double damage, and mostly they die in the first stab though there are some that are more resilient than others and need multiple stabbing.

This time Azief don’t have time to check any of the items.

He just puts it in his pocket. He also grabs a kindergartener bag from one of the child zombies in which he crushes the head with his dagger.

Putting it in his bag, he uses it to store his loot.

YOU HAVE ADVANCED TO LEVEL 10. YOU HAVE EARNED 2 STATS POINTS.

YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO CHANGE CLASS RIGHT NOW. IT IS RECOMMENDED TO GO TO SAFE ZONE BEFORE CHANGING CLASS.

RIGHT NOW YOU ARE IN THE RED ZONE. FIND A SAFE PLACE FOR YOU TO CHANGE CLASS AND ACTIVATES THE CLASS FUNCTION.

Class change! Azief screamed in his mind. Of course, he can change classes. This is beginning to feel more and more like a game.

Then he hears the groaning and turns to face his back behind.

His hand is holding his dagger while looking at the dozens of more zombies near him and he said. He knows his dagger could not last longer.

And seeing the crawling zombies the only thing he could say was.

‘Ah, shit!’
