There’s a crowd at the foot of paving stones upward the Badril Mountain . Most of the people were waiting for village staff to check their identity and ensure everyone under twenty have permissions from their respective family . That was mainly because, most of the youth would hunting and adventuring for days, even weeks .

Even if this was Shira’s first experience to climb the mountain for gains experiences, it seems he was quite expecting this . Early in the morning, he sneaked into his uncle office room, forging a permission with the family stamp, then left a long and detailed letter filled with lame excuses .

When it’s finally his turn to be checked, the village staff glances the youth with a curious gaze .

“Isn’t this the Young Master of Yashura Family? Do you want to climb the mountain, or hunting in the forest?” asked the staff .

“I want to explore the mountain for a few days,” Shira answered collectedly .

“Where’s your party then?”

“I don’t have any . ”

“You should form a party with friends of the same age . ”

“Also don’t have any . ”

“You don’t have friends?” the staff gawked .

It was pitiful, but Shira can only honestly nods .

Well, he has one that he could consider as a friend . But he was a spirit . And he was quite old too .

In the end, the staff called someone to recommend Shira to a party .

A nineteen years old delinquent was the one who comes . The punk was nicknamed Bony, the Badril Village most promising young Knight . He was a Level 13 Knight at nineteen years old, so naturally, he would be a party leader every time he sets out adventuring .

“Is this Shira Yashura?” he asked with a smirk .

“Yes,” Shira faintly answered, as he still not forgets the bully who standing in the front of him .

Bony smiled, noticing the bag in Shira belt was packed .

“You seems weren’t in some party, so the staff stops you? Why not join my party, then?”

“Okay . ”

The two of them walk away after Bony casually waving his hands toward the staffs .

Bony said in a whisper . “Little shit, you shouldn’t bring too much weight on your belt . I can carry them for you . ”

Shira held his snort . “Kindly shut up for me please . ”

“Do you wanna die, punk?”

Shira shrug at Bony threat . In his childhood, he suffers a lot under Bony and his boys bullying . But that was years ago . There’s no reason to afraid again . After all, there still a questionable spirit who looks after him now .

Bony really want to beat him like the old days . But the place is too crowded .

“Let see how you still playing cool in my party,” Bony threatened again . “The forest is dangerous, don’t you know?”

“I’m not going with you . ”

“Alone? Do you really plan to die?”

“That’s not your business . ”

There are nine people in Bony’s party, excluding Shira . Two of them were girls, Bhela Malikh and Lyla Blackwood .

“Don’t ring the bell now, Lyla . Ring it only if you encounter danger,” Bhela told her little friend for the eighth time .

“But it sounded cute… I wanna bring it home…” Lyla pouted, then suddenly, she notices two figure closing in . “Eh? Sis Bhela?”

“What is it?”

“That’s your fiancé!”

Bhela turned around, looks unhappy when she saw Shira Yashura .

“It seems we are in the same party with him,” Lyla said .

“Such a bother,” and Bhela sighed .

Bony told everyone in the party to start climbing up the mountain stairs . All party members were looking Shira like some sort of foreigner, as they never see the youth around here .

When they set off, Bony whispering something to two of his henchmen, Pilek and Polio . Three of them was looking back few times, grinning when they see the serious Shira walking at the party’s tail .

Half an hour later, Shira silently breaks off from the party, entering a hidden path into the wilderness of the mountain . It was Lyla Blackwood again who notices the Yashura youth walks out from the party . She silently tells her friend Bhela what’s happening .

“He tries to be cool . Don’t bother him . If he’s overestimated his ability then that was his fault . The mountain wilderness is a dangerous place, not someone backyard to play around, even I myself won’t dare to enter alone . ”

Two party members also slowed down . They were Polio and Pilek . Both of them give Bony a confirming nod before following Shira into the wilderness .

Shira Yashura is a Level 3 Novice .

Logically, there’s no monsters or beasts he can challenge here . The weakest of them would take a bunch of Level 5 Novices to take down . It was no joke .

Take Level 4 wolf beast as an example . Its raw power, ferociousness, agility, or speed might on the same page with Level 5 human Novice . But beasts’ world was more brutal than the human world, a kill or be killed society . Thus, no human would take a same leveled monsters or beasts lightly .

Shira climbs the mountain knowing full well of how dangerous his adventure would be .

But he has some confidence . It was because he read a lot of stories and details of monsters and beasts of the Badril Mountain before, so he at least has some information and statistic about his enemies to prepare .

The second reason was that he knows skill manuals that Good-Natured handed to him over the past year were not ordinary skills . Especially the passive skill ‘Water Flowing Style’, which increases his dodge rating tremendously since he starts learning it . He was sure he would be safe against normal opponents if he maximizes the potential of the passive skill .

Besides, there are also three active skills that he needed to test against a real opponent:

‘Open Wound’, a silver-rank attack-type skill, which would stop enemy health regenerations and deals damage over time .

‘Mana Break’, another silver-rank attack-type skill, sent sliver of crippling mana energy to enemy’s vein, clogging their mana circulation from the inside, burning away a small portion of the target’s mana pool per attack and deals damage based on mana loss .

‘Stamina Drain’, a slightly inferior copper-rank attack-type skill, drains enemy stamina, very effective against a physical-relied opponent that moves and attacks fast .

Three of the active skills were an attack-type, so Shira can only use one of them each time he swings his sword .

He wanted really wanted to test each skill with suitable enemies . So he intentionally comes to this isolated area of Badril Mountain . No warriors from the youth generation were hunting and camping around here, and hunters usually avoid territories of Monster Elite, the most high-ranked monsters and beasts around the area who had the intelligence to talk and communicate with humans .

Someone can fuse two or more skills after he understanding the skills were reaching a certain degree . And of course, a high point of Wisdom is a must .

Because of that, masters of Fusion Skill were usually scholars .

“I had to perform a successful Fusion Skill . My high Wisdom would be useless if I can’t even fuse this kind of trash skills,” Shira said, thinking aloud .

After he said that, a complaining tone voice was heard in the background . “Brat! What the hell did you say about my skills? You the trash one, alright, you little piece of shit!”

Shira turned around, but can’t catch a glimpse of the annoying spirit .

He notices two sneaky silhouettes which were following him though .

The first enemy Shira encounters was an adult wolf .

This fight was an easy one for Shira . Although the wolf was feral and dangerous enough even for high-level Novice, for Shira who utilized his ‘Water Flowing Style’ and ‘Stamina Drain’, the battle feels like a teen who looted candies from an enraged five years old child .

The wolf felt weak after Shira attacks him again and again with ‘Stamina Drain’ . And its attacks weren’t even able to hit the human youth too . Hopeless, the beast starts to flee for its life .

But how could Shira let it go just like that? Wolf fangs and pelts can be traded as copper coins when he descends the mountain later .

At the last moment, Shira giving up dodging using his ‘Water Flowing Style’, and starts charging aggressively towards the wolf .

The wolf dead, and Shira takes the time to rest, drinking mana potions and digesting some energy snacks .

Later he skins the wolf and picks out the beast’s teeth . His loots reek with thick blood scents . He puts it all in an empty bag and decides to wash them if he found wellspring on the way .

An hour later, Shira fights with a huge venom-spitter snake .

It was a tricky battle, as Shira rarely have the chance to charge forward and attacks the slippery range enemy . And if he did, he decisively attacks it with his ‘Mana Burn’ skills, draining the snake’s reserves mana pool .

The snake was a cunning beast . But Shira intentionally using its cunningness to his advantages . After knowing its mana drained every time the human youth dealt a damage, the snake starts to spare its mana consumption, focusing on dodging the youth attacks . But that was only giving Shira more chances to attack, thus, after he was certain that the snakes getting more cautious, Shira starts to switch his attack-type skill to ‘Stamina Drain’ .

The snake doesn’t know now its opponent targeting to drains its stamina point away . So as the time went by, its movement becomes sluggish .

In the end, its die under Shira’s blade . But the battle duration almost takes twice longer than Shira fights the previous wolf .

Shira Yashura then takes a long rest and makes his lunch by roasting the snake’s meat .

In some hidden bush, two figures were watching Shira’s battle with sullen expressions .

“Hey, Polio, those wolf and snake were at least Level 7 beast, weren’t they?”

“Yes… . ”

“Did you think you could beat them alone?”

“I’m not the type who seeks death . ”

“…”

“…”

“Do you think its time for us to go back?”

“Ah, I think so . Let’s go back . We already proper adult teens and it’s not good for us adult to bully younger kids . ”

“Yes, yes . It’s lame . We’re not into bullying anymore . Let’s back and meet Boss Bony then . ”

“…”

“…”

“…”

“Eerr… Polio… did you remember the path for us to return?”

“No…”
