Mage of the Abyss

Chapter 4 ~ So This is the Path I Chose

ot of enemies there, at least we have some travelers who might be able to help us. ”

Another one nodded, ”Thats true, we can possibly be fighting against powerful monsters when you need all the hands-on deck. ”

”We can just go in there and— ”


The Baldy punched the ground, and that shut them up. Soon after, the other injured old men spoke, trying to calm them down. They did succeed on that a little but the old men are still having that hardened expression on their face.

This is a bit awkward, I mean, Im basically nobody and just voiced my opinion. Welp, its up to them to decide though.

Crossing their arms, tapping on their shoulder… I can tell, they
e anxious, worried.

Baldy frowned as he spoke, ”Lass, are you serious about this? ”

I nodded.

Another old man with a long beard slams the ground with his fist, ”Nonsense. Boland, you know you need us. Are you just going to ditch us to escape? ”

Oh? So the Baldy name is Boland?

He grabbed his shoulder, ”Hey, nobody said that, ” turning his head towards me, ”But Lass, whats your plan on this? ”

”Hm? Well, we fight our way through of course. ”

”You,,, ” the bearded old man gritted his teeth but then suddenly, he coughed blood out of his mouth. Baldy tapped his shoulder and said, ”Don stress out too much, Dura. Hang in there. ”

*Pant *Pant

He doesn look too good. Maybe I should stop joking from now on. Should be another time and place for that.

I know a lot of things about this place, but it might not be as up-to-date – well, more like out to date since its the past – but my knowledge might come in handy.

Gesturing my hand as I speak, ”Listen. Those Travelers are not our allies… ”

Huh, what the hell am I talking about. I mean sure that was what I was going to say, but I sure as hell did say Players instead of Travelers though.

”… Some nasty ones might do us more harm than the undead themselves, plus, they
e only acting for their own benefits… ”

Again, I didn mean to say it that hard.

”… South will guarantee us having to worry more about them and only the mindless undead are around which Im sure if we can band together on them, we can get out of this place. ”

I don even know anymore, sounded so sure to put out the word ”guarantee ”, and why the hell did my choice of words was altered out of my mouth, is the Realism Mode doing this or what?

”Look, our goal is to get out of this place safely… all of us. ”

Their expression is still conflicted


Out of nowhere, an explosion just blasted the prison door opened. Some of the old men hide me on their back, luckily nothing happened.

Geh, its starting already?! Too soon! We haven even decided where to go! No, better yet, wasn I suppose to get out of here alone?

And that is when I realized why the Baldy or Boland asked me for my opinion, ”We don have much time… ” he stood, ”Lets go. Well take your route, Lass. ”

”Ah. ”

I paid good money for this character, man! Why did this happen to me?! Hah, the thought completely slipped from my mind. They were asking for my opinion and I just went with the flow, forgetting what I even said and thought, and now I have to-

”Well follow you. ”

”W-Wait a moment, why do I have to be the one to lead? ”

”Guts feeling. You seem like you know what you were talking about, and here, take this. Wouldn want you to bang that pretty head of yours on those nasty creatures. ”

A blade, I took it off his hand and then…

! {Item Received}

~ {Boland Stone Shiv / Rank F-Uncommon / Physical Attack: 7}

No requirement or level restriction on this thing. Its nice, I guess. I allocated not a single point to Strength or Dexterity, but I should be able to use this thing despite not having any bonuses coming from those two stats.

It still hard for me to accept the role of a leader. In my past life, I was completely a joke at it, and even my own friend – that Kurira bitch – would make a disstrack on just how **ing awful I was.

But why does it feel like I have to do this?

Is my paranoia kicking in again?

If I were to refuse it, will something really bad happen?

These thoughts are killing me, and when I had enough of this shit. I just decided, You know what. Fine! steeled my ass cheeks to the maximum hardness, Im gonna lead this rusty group and take them to the **ing surface, man!
