As the undead mob started to swarming us, Galliano, with his sick "fisting" style technique made the draugr coming at him elated in ecstasy to the point of them being purified from the darkness.

*Bam *Bam *Bam

While my boring attacks are still ongoing, Boland shoved his sword all the way inside the stomach of that draugr.

*Stab *Slice *Slash

‘All right, I'm gonna stop that.’

*Tap *Kick

Backing away, I quickly scan the area to find the mechanism to open the gate or at least, the way to open it.

‘Doesn’t seem to have anything unusual though. The number of undead coming kept increasing but they don’t look to be reviving after they die, so maybe… there is going to be a boss coming soon. Might want to hurry this up.’

*Rrraghh*

One is slowly coming at me like a zombie.

‘These things are so easy to kill even if they have armor, but the amount of Exp given is so low, and not only that, I have to rely on my own to level up.’

Putting the dagger away to the inventory, I dashed towards it with both of my hands holding the axe.

*SLASH*

As the draugr fell.

{+80 Exp}

! {Level UP}

My eyes widened, I clenched my fist high and take it, “Hell yeah!” quickly opens up my profile status, ‘Worry about builds later. My boys need me.’

With the level going up, I can now allocate 1200 points to Primary Attributes and 40 Points to Secondary Attributes. However, Players can only allocate per 100 points for the Primary instead of per point like the Secondary Attributes' points.

Leveling up only gives 600 points for the Primary and 20 points for the Secondary, but for the first level, players always get an extra bonus.

I can feel my body improving, “Looks like I’ll be getting a new kind of addiction.”

Doubling the points on Agility does not give me have double the movement speed, but I can feel my senses of my own steps are—

*Tak

“You just had to—”

*Thud*

{-30}

With that kind of sound, even Boland heard it. Quickly heading towards my direction as I struggle to get up, “D-Damn it, I still haven’t gotten used to this yet.”

My performance is a lot worse than in my previous life, not that it was really that good in the first place anyway but still! It shouldn't be like this, man!

Boland slashes through the undead and assisted me in getting up, “You okay, lass?”

“S-Sorry.”

He paused as he looks at me, “…” tapping my shoulder, “Face up, lass. More are coming.” Dashing onward, he continues his rampage on the mindless undead.

“…” I hope he’s not mad at me.

*Grraaargh*

Glancing to my right, I took my blade out of the inventory again and muttered, “Welp, time to wrap this up.”

! {Level UP}

Fatigue tightening my chest, “Haa…” I sighed.

It wasn’t even that hard, we pretty much breeze through it no problem on the difficulty, but… there were just too many of them. Boland seems to have finished his portion, the group is safe, and Galliano is also about to be done too.

Looking back to my Profile Status, ‘I should save these points until I need—’

*BOOM*

Just had to say it, huh. I froze in place as the level of annoyance increasing, it quickly gets into my head. Something just came crashing down at Galliano’s location.

“What the…” amidst the smoke, something swings at him.

*Bwoosh*

It was slow, and thanks to that, Galliano managed to react in time to dodge it.

When the smoke clears out, even I was astonished at what is coming out of it, “Holy… shit.”

A 25ft tall mossed golem.

I thought it was a fist that came swinging but turns out, it was a huge rock after all. ‘This is bad,’ quickly shouting, “Galliano! Come here!”

*Groooooooaaaaaah*

Powerful battle music started ringing in my ears.

! {Boss Encounter}

~ {Aged Stone Golem Lv. 10}

The golem pursuit him as he ran towards us, ‘Shit,’ with Boland standing beside me, I have an idea, “All right, change of plan. None of our attacks will be effective, but do you have any skills, sir?”

“Of course, lass. Though, against that thing, I doubt it’ll do much.”

His main weapon is a sword, just by that fact and his class alone, it’s easy to tell that his offensive skills are all slashing type. Galliano might be better with his fisting style, but let’s not joke around now, I doubt he has any skills right now.

Kenmartha doesn’t look to be it either.

The NPCs are all much higher level than that thing, but Level, in general, is different for both humans and monsters. There is a reason why a death slime level 1 is inherently much more powerful than a giant slime level 100.

‘All right, let’s do this then.’

==== Quick Status ====

10 points in Endurance resulted in an increase of 5 on the Physical Defense, and when a player hits 10 on Intelligence, they will have the same bonus increase to the Magical Defense and will further increase as they go up in synchronize. Points on Faith will give the same bonus and work the same as well.

My heart beating fast as Galliano coming closer and closer, not that it’s fluttering, but nervousness.

*Boom *Boom *Boom

The steps of the golem made me suffocating.

Running towards it, “Galliano! I’ll take over from here! You attack that piece of stone from behind! Aim for the back of its neck, okay!?”

“Wha—”

Dashing even faster, and in a quick slow motion, as I passed him, I tapped his shoulder with the back of my hand and entrusted everything to him.

My face shudders in tears as I come closer and closer to the golem, this fear, I never felt this feeling in a while.

Gripping my axe tightly, I swung it.

*Woosh *Bam

{2}

It felt like the whole world went silent. The axe managed to stab it into the inside of its shin, but it dealt almost no damage at all. A blunder. My eyes glancing up and I saw… the golem swinging its arm.

*CRASH*

I flew with a crushing noise coming out of my bones.

{-689}

*Thud *Plak *Thud

My sights have gone dark, it took but a moment… for the pain to settle in, “H-A-A-A-A-A-G-H!”

‘It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts…’ my lips trembling, my eyes— no, my right eye is shaking, ‘No, no, no! D-Don’t… Don’t cry, d-don’t—”

Bursting into tears, “H-u-w-a-a-a-a-h-h!”

My mind shook, ‘WHY! Why did it happen to me?! Why!!’

*Boom *Boom *Boom

The fear is coming up to me once again, the golem is approaching, “Hnggrh…” crawling away while sobbing with teary eyes.

*Hic *Hic

“N-No, d-don’t come. Please, d-don’t…” I don’t know what is happening to me and my mind right now that I’d even beg to a monster, “P-Please…”

Quickly crawling away with all my might, but the golem kept getting closer and closer until… Galliano enters the scene.

*BOOM *Crack

The giant staggered that it even stumbled on his knees.

Boland came around from the right with a strong aura coming out of him, and his sword, he swung it vertically upward and a slice of orange wave struck the staggered golem.

*BOOM*

Smoke covers that thing, and I quickly get away as far as I could.

The attacks were powerful, but when the golem got out of the smoke, one can see… that those attacks almost did nothing to it at all.

*Grooooooooaaaaaaaaah*

Both Galliano and Boland have their face hardened.

The latter quickly moves straight towards me, quickly kneeling, and fed me a subtle red color potion like, “There, there. You’re all right now, take it slow, lass.”

*Gulp *Gulp *Gulp

As my vision adjusted a little bit better, I can see the golem is just standing there doing nothing. Even Galliano was frozen into place, ‘Wait, what the hell is—” as soon as I turn my attention to Boland, he too is not moving.

I can rotate my eyes but I can’t move my body, ‘What is this.’

Something weighing my mind, it feels as if I’m having sleep paralysis, and if that is the case, then that means… There is something behind me, 'W-Wait, hold on.'

‘Am I dreaming? In this situation?!’

*Tap*

Something just touched my shoulder, ‘Aaa… aaa… A-A-A-G-H-H!’

‘Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, Siola!!’ as the weight kept getting thicker, filling my mind with the darkness and unbearably screeching sound enveloped me, I woke up.

“Hm, you’re finally awake.”

*Pant *Pant

My eyes are shaking, ‘What am I looking at right now. That thing died?’ as soon as my sights fully adjusted themselves, I noticed that I’m being carried by Boland on his back.

We have entered a new landscape. The same fortification, but instead of a circle, it’s a wide-open space, and not only that, it feels more like a jungle instead. Mushy green plants and trees growing out of the floors, the walls, and I can even see some in the ceiling.

“Have we… passed the Gate?”

“Mm.”

“Wh-What happen to the golem?”

Boland stopped, and as his expression showing a sign of confusion, I know that something is weighing his mind. What he muttered stated the obvious, “I don’t know.”

“Huh?”
