Twin's fate part 2


Aella raised an eyebrow as she was curious about the hooded person, who seemed do not to get affected by her Element.

"Is that a threat?"

"Just a warning from a new friend."

This response made her even more curious to hear him out.

She made the bubbles disappear, but she moved fast to bring everyone to fall unconscious.

She got all the pouches of coins that the man in charge of the fights had on him, as also the ones who seemed to be his security. Then she followed the man outside this place.

She noticed they seemed to be in a village, completely different from the usual one that the humans were currently making. It seemed quite old, but some of the architecture seemed different.

After they exited what seemed to be a large village, the hooded person brought a bracelet from one of his pockets with a white gem on it.

"Put this on. Quickly we don't have a lot of time." the man told her as he seemed to be in a hurry for them to move.

Aella couldn't see his face, but she could hear his heartbeat, which made her tell if people lied to her or if they had ill intentions. It didn't seem to be the case this time, so she took the bracelet and put it on.

The gem turned orange and slowly seemed to lose its color.

"Good, we aren't in as much danger as we thought. But try to use less of her true power next time. If this was red, we would be in great trouble."

The man then brought out a notebook and gave it to Aella.

"This has everything you need to know about the game and how to clear the first few dungeons."

Aella showed signs of apparent confusion, as she didn't know what this person talked about.

"Sorry, I am going too fast, but I don't have a lot of time."

He looked left and right, making sure that they were alone.

"I will try to explain as much as I can. THIS here…. this whole place isn't real. It feels and seems real, but it is actually a game—something created by humans, for some to have fun, while the reality is far from it. Either way, you have been captured, and they experimented with you by making you part of the game. But their System lost control over you. You are welcome for that."

He paused, waiting for a response that didn't come.

"I freed you from its control but had reset your stats, not that they helped you much as you have kept your real-life speed and strength. Some of your abilities also should still work, as using your magic, but some don't as there isn't something similar in the game."

He paused once more, waiting for something to happen, maybe expecting for Aella, but she stayed silent for now.

"I see how it is… I heard they consider you people undead but didn't expect to be dead silent like that. So short story, this isn't your actual body, just a digital creation of the game's system. I had sent you to be the same as a level 0 player, meaning one that just started the game. The notebook contains everything you need to know to start your trip. Questions?"

This time Aella didn't remain motionless, as she brought her hand under her chin as she started thinking.

"Why did you help me? What is it for you?"

She heard a chuckle coming from the man.

"Straight to the point, I see. I like it. But sorry I can't reveal this yet, but I have my selfish reasons. But what I can tell you is that you would be more useful out of here than in here."

"What about these dungeons you mentioned? Something about cleaning them?"

This time there was a burst of laughter instead of a chuckle.

"Not cleaning them. Clearing them. Meaning you need to defeat the boss, the strongest monster there. I am sure you can easily take care of them. Just keep in mind you shouldn't make the bracelet turn red. If you do so, the system will locate you and will take control of you once more. Won't be able to free you a second time. As for the dungeons, if you clear the last one, they will bring you into a special place for a reward near the core of the system. From there, you can make yourself return to your body and escape. Easy enough, right?"

Aella didn't know how easy it would be, but it sounded fun. She could fight different monsters into a fake world made by humans.

Could this day get any better?
