Chapter 22

After the light flower bloomed, I could hear heavy footsteps ahead of me . Neither Goblins or Grass wolves were heavy enough to have such steps, leaving the only possibility…

A Red bear .

That guess, unfortunately, was right . A large monster with large red eyes slowly stepped out of the shadows, it’s large body and flame red fur, stared at me . It didn’t look like it was going to attack yet, but it had me in its sights . A threatening snarl appeared on the bear’s face, but the bear was already in my attack range . Quickly, I went down to one knee while readying my weapon, taking the initiative to attack first . With my sights trained on the Bear, I fired the P90 . The bear, as if knowing what was going to happened, turned its head to the right and the bullets made contact with the left side of its face . Even though it tried to protect itself slightly, I managed to take out its left eye . The bear let out a deep roar in a mix of pain and rage as blood began to gush out of its obliterated eye, it’s roar echoing through the hall before charging at me .


Its speed was faster than I thought it would be, but before he reached me, I ran towards the right wall of the hall, just like in VMB, I wall ran over the charging Red Bear .


The bear, blinded by rage, tried to change course to catch me, but only ended up crashing into the wall . I landed behind the bear with the help of the Powered suit, taking advantage of the bear’s mistake and I unleashed a rain of fire onto its rear end, managing to disable its hind legs . It didn’t let out a roar of anger, but more of a cry of pain this time as its legs buckled, it’s read half crashing into the floor under all its weight . I didn’t give it a chance to catch its breath though as I ran up to it and jumped onto it’s back, landing just behind its head . I pressed the suppressor attached to the P90 to the neck area just behind its skull and held down the trigger .

I emptied the rest of my magazine into the back of the Red Bear’s head, and for a moment the only sound in the hall was that of the spent casings falling and rolling . Then as if a spell released the bear, it’s body fell straight down with a loud thud then fading away, dropping me onto the ground . I had some grievances in my heart there, I didn’t actually know if that would work like it did in VMB, but it did . I kept those thoughts to my self though as I picked up the Red Bear’s stone . As I replaced the spent magazine in the P90, I heard the familiar heavy footsteps coming from in the dark again, on the map it actually show two bears!

I could feel from the steps that they were rushing my way . Their spend was way faster than I thought there even could be a possibility of a monster that was faster than my reaction speed and could kill me the moment I met them, but I quickly clear these thoughts from my head as I had two monsters heading my way and I only had a few moments to set a trap .

Before they could reach here, I summoned the supply box with M18 Claymore [*1] Landmines in it, in front of me, light particles instantly converged and formed a box that held the Claymore mines in it . I quickly got to work and set one up in the center of the corridor . These Claymores were one directional use Anti-Personnel mines used by the United States Of America military and they were box-shaped with a slight curve with a with of less than 20cms . On detonation, it unleashes as many as seven hundred iron balls that are held inside in a fan shape .

That said, it’s rumored that the real thing can even reach up to 250 meters, but in VMB, we didn’t really have distances like that . In the labyrinth was a different story though, it should be enough to cripple or even kill the enemy’s feet and stop them from escaping . The mine had two ways of detonation, by wire or remote control by a handheld trigger . Unfortunately, VMB’s Claymores could only be detonated by remote control . Even so, I would have reservations about setting a wired trap since anything could set it off and I didn’t get unknowing adventurers in the mix .

“Done . ”

I installed the claymore and stayed back a little bit to wait for them . The sounds of the heavy footsteps because louder, shaking the floor slightly . In the game, waiting behind your trap was actually quite dangerous because once it went off, everyone within earshot would be alerted, but it had its pros and cons . Suddenly, the footsteps got quicker and quicker! Did they detect me? …

In that case, I readied myself for a fight . They footsteps got closer and closer until two bears plunged out of the darkness at breakneck speeds .  Click . The detonation trigger was squeezed . The claymore exploded almost instantly and shook the entire hallway sending dust everywhere, obstructing my view . Crap! There was never any dust that would roll up in VMB! Dust lingered in the air, making it almost impossible to see the bears so I quickly turned my heads-up display to Thermo-vision .

Two giant bodies of red and yellow appeared in my eyepiece, the chest areas were burning a deep red, possibly because that was where the mana stones were located . The two bears’ faces were covered in blood and so was their front legs . They had couldn’t move at the moment due to shock from their injuries and the explosion . Without giving them a moment to catch their breath, I lined the first bear’s head in my crosshairs and squeezed the trigger . Deep red floors bloomed in the thermo-sight, my guess from the blood splatter before it slowly began to cool off as the bear dropped down . I then quickly switched to the other bear and finished that one off in the same fashion

Afterward, both the bears laid lifeless on the floor, but then a dark fog began to wrap around them before they bodies began to sink into the labyrinth, leaving only the mana stone in their places . I picked those stones up, but sadly they weren’t attributeless . They were red as fire .

I took out some of the mana stones in my pouch and found that the attributeless had no head signature, the wind was slightly red and the bluish had a slight signature . This was interesting information and after looking over the stones for a while, I placed them all back in my pouch and finished up with mapping the second floor before heading down to the third floor to map it .
