A Journey That Changed The World

Chapter 6 The First Hunt

All he could hear was a thumping noise coming from the bodies. , It attracted him more than anything he’s ever experienced. , Archer slowly approached it while examining the wild dog’s body. , He realized the thumping sounds were coming from the beast’s chest. , ”Hmm, the heart maybe?” , Taking out his knife from the Item Box and sliced it open. , Thump!~ Thump!~ Thump!~ , As he grasped the still beating warm heart, the thumping got even louder. , Pulling it out as blood dripped down his hand turning it red. , Archer brings the heart closer and examines it as he asked himself. , ”Is this what’s attracting me?” , His instincts kicked in and told him to eat it. , Munch!~ Munch!~ Spelch!~ , After finishing the heart he felt an odd feeling circling his body. , An explosion erupted inside him. , Sending Archer to the ground. , His body felt stronger as he was laying there. , He decided to check his stats. , ‘Status.’ , Experience: 500/1000 , SP: 0>1 , Mana: 610/800 , ‘I think killing the wild dogs gave me 100 experiences each, and the heart gave me 100 as well as one status point.’ , From the memories he got from the old Archer, he knew whenever someone levels up they get two stat points to upgrade each stat by 10, some stats can get boosted higher but that’s a rare occurrence. , After standing up, Archer extracted the rest of the hearts from the rest. , He also realized he wasn’t hungry anymore. , It must have been the heart he just ate. , Neither he nor the old Archer knew anything about this. , He started overthinking before shaking his head. , ”I’ll see if the guild has a library when I get back” , He shrugged and decided to think about it later. , After collecting all the hearts he ate the rest and felt the power boost flow from him after swallowing the last bite. , Experience: 800/1000 , SP: 1>4 , Mana: 670/800 , Archer then spent two points on mana and strength to see what results he would get. , Mana: 800>860 , Strength: 45>65 ., SP: 4>0 , ‘Oh look at that, mana gets 30 per point and strength got 10, that’s okay.’ , Storing the wild dog’s bodies, he explored the forest. , Archer walking into the forest began searching for more beasts. , This feeling made his blood boil, he wanted more of it. , Like the beginning of something new, it felt beautiful. , He loved the feeling of experience flowing into his body. , It felt like a drug he could never get sick of. , He continued with his first hunt. , After walking for a while, the afternoon sun was high in the sky. , But it vanished as Archer walked deeper into the forest. , The trees were getting taller and bulkier. , He could hear animal noises normally heard in forests. , That’s when he suddenly heard a rustle in front of him, the same alarm feeling came over him as he jumped to the side. , Woosh!~ Woosh!~ , Two shabby-looking arrows flew past his face. , He wondered what this alarming feeling was, as it warned him again. , —— sense of learned , He looked baffled at the half-hidden skill he had just learned but noticed it was something to do with senses. , Archer jumps forward but trips as he lands. , Turning around he saw a small green humanoid lunging from the bush with a spear made from a branch. , Then a group walked out of the bushes surrounding Archer. , He panicked as he counted them. , ‘There are 15 of them, ** my life!’ , He quickly cast his Cosmic Sword spell to fight back. , ”Cosmic sword!” , A pitch-black sword that resembled a Greek kopis short sword from ancient times. , Archer could feel that the sword barely weighs anything and could be wielded by him easily, it was also sharp enough to slice straight through the skin. , ”Let’s test it out Hehe.” , He darted forward shocking the 15 goblins trying to surround the young white-haired human in front of them. , Archer sliced at the closest goblin who tried to block the creepy black sword with its wooden shield. , However, it sliced straight through the wooden shield with no difficulty, it slashed the goblin’s throat. , Kicking the dead goblin away, seeing its blood spilling out. , He stood still as the goblins surrounded him. , Laughing manically while his eyes shone brightly as he began to quote something he read in his past life. , ”HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Let me tell you a quote I know!” , ”Walls have ears, , Doors have eyes. , Trees have voices. , Beats tell lies. , Beware the rain. , Beware the snow. , Beware the man. , You think you know!” , Archer quickly lunged forward while slashing at the closest goblin’s neck. , The goblins head went flying through the air, Archer pointed his small hand at a group of three goblins and fired a void blast at them. , He fired three Void Blasts at the two groups running at him from different directions. , ‘Void Blasts.’ , Boom!~ Boom!~ Boom!~ , The seven goblins who were running towards Archer were sent flying when they got struck by the blasts. , Landing quite far away with heavy thuds. , ”Hehe, six more to go!” , Archer pounced forward while slashing the two goblins standing close, he spun around while casting Body Enhancement on his legs and shot forward quicker than the goblins could even see. , The last four goblins panicked and started firing arrows at Archer who inwardly cast a Cosmic Shield around him. , ‘Cosmic Shield!’ , The same purple barrier that appeared earlier grew around him again and blocked the arrows before vanishing. , He finally got to the two goblins standing in front. , Casting another Cosmic Sword so he could have two. , Plunging both blades into the goblins while staring into their eyes with a massive smile on his face. , Erghhhhh!~~~~ , Arghhhh!~~~~ , Pulling the blades out as the last two goblins attacked. , Quickly deflecting one goblin’s swipe while he stabbed the other goblin with his sword before he got to him. , Following that, Archer fired a Void Blast at point-blank range. , ‘Void Blast!’ , It tore through the goblin sending its body falling to the ground with a thud. , Thud!~ ., Archer stood there in the middle of the carnage while looking around at his handiwork. , Spotting a few goblins getting up from the groups that rushed him at the beginning. , Rushing forward he ended all their lives without missing a beat. , The Cosmic Swords were dismissed, as he sat down to catch his breath. , ‘This body isn’t used to this, hopefully, it gets stronger with time.’ , That’s when he checked his status because he felt that similar feeling from earlier but stronger this time. , Experience: 50/1000 , Level Up: 0>3 , Rank: Novice , SP: 0>6 , —— Sense Learned , While Archer was looking at the notifications he pulled up, realizing he leveled up and got an unknown skill that involved his senses and got excited. , Deciding not to spend the points for now and wanted to hunt some more. , Standing up he went over to the bodies and started cutting out the hearts while storing them alongside the goblin bodies. , Feeling the Item Box was close to getting full, he didn’t bother about it as he continued hunting with a smile on his face. , Several hours later he walked out of the forest. , During his hunt, he managed to kill four forest wolves and 10 more goblins. , Looking back down as he checked his status. , ‘Status’ , Archer , Race: —- , Age: 13 , Rank: Novice , Experience: 50/1000 , Level Up: 3>5 , SP: 6>10 , Void Blast: 0>1 , Cosmic sword: 0>1 , Mana: 860>880 , Strength: 65>75 , Constitution: 30>40 , Stamina: 60>70 , Charisma: 200>260 , Intelligence: 80>90 , He got excited once he saw his status, he gained a lot from all the hunting his done. , All his stats increased a tiny bit, plus Archer gathered loads of new hearts. , Closing his eyes and thought about Item Box and saw everything he has collected so far. , 24 goblin hearts, 4 forest wolf hearts, and the bodies he managed to collect. , 4 wild dogs, 18 goblins, and 4 forest wolf bodies. , He inwardly congratulated himself. , ‘What a fruitful first hunt, hopefully, they all go that way, I’ll earn a lot of coins from this’ , He remembered the currency from the old Archer’s memories. , ‘100 copper is 1 silver, 100 silver is 1 gold, 100 gold is a platinum coin.’ , Shaking his head as he cleared his thoughts. , It was then Archer realized it was nighttime and he couldn’t continue to hunt anymore. , ‘Let’s find a tree and get some sleep.’ , Archer went off to find a suitable tree to sleep in and found one not long after that was sitting at the edge of the forest. , Climbing up and getting as comfortable as possible, he remembered he got his first rank earlier. , He summoned the pop-up window for his rank. , ‘Rank’ , Rank Unlocked: Novice , Archer tried hard to recall the ranks, and he only had information until rank seven. , It works like this: , 0-20 – Novice, 20-40 – Apprentice – 40-60 – Adept – 60-80 – Expert – 80-100 – Master – 100-150 – Magus – 150-200 – Arch Magus – 200-250 – Grandmaster – 250 – 300 – Sage , That’s all the old Archer knew about the ranking system. , His stomach growled as he leaned up against the tree trunk while on a branch. , He pulled out a goblins heart he collected earlier and then chewed on it. , ‘The taste isn’t bad, but it’s not the best either.’ , He sat there eating the hearts as he watched the grassland, his mind overthinking as usual , Hoping that Alexa and his family were okay and managed to cope with his death better than he was. , Archer then ate the rest of the hearts he’s gathered before falling asleep to the hooting of birds and the shrieks of something hunting. , A/N – Leave some comments, power stones, and gifts.
