I want an exciting life.
My life is boring.
I thought when I was 14 years old.
Im an orphan pretty much since I was born, I don even know who my parents are as they abandoned me near an orphanage after some weeks I was born.
Theres nothing special with me, even my name Cole just means black, how special is that?
When I turned 16 years old, I developed a hobby of reading novels, when I started reading, it was just to pass time but novels are more entertaining than I thought that I got hooked in it, since then I would read novels whenever I have the time to.
When reading novels, it feels like something inside me is getting filled, I feel emotions I normally wouldn feel. It makes me think that maybe, this life is still worth living.
Don get me wrong, Im not planning to kill myself, its just that Im so bored in the past that I thought dying might not be that bad. If you ask me why Im still alive in that time, Ill probably answer Because Im not dead yet.
So reading novels really do means a lot to me.
I got an scholarship when I was 18 years old in a small university in my neighborhood of the orphanage I was in, but I still need money to provide my daily needs and some school stuffs that time.
So I tried to find a job even though Im lazy.
Also reading novels is slowly getting boring for me at that time, it seems that I can find a novel that I can enjoy, which is bad for me because its the only thing that I really enjoy doing.
And then one day I thought.
If I can find a novel that I like, why not just make one myself then?
Which might be the best solution because it may also solve my money problem.
So I did made one. Creating a novel is harder than I thought, sometimes I would suddenly stop midway then continue it again later, or when I was about to finish a chaper, a new idea will pop out in my mind, but in the end, I did created one.
My first novel is inspired from a novel that I really like, I got the idea there then create a different story out of it.
Surprisingly, people started reading my novel, and reading their comments about it made me feel happy, so I come to enjoy writing novels.
I continued writing novels, again and again, until now the present time.
And I was currently 29 years old.
A sigh came out from my mouth as I finished posting the latest chapter of my current ongoing novel.
”Now what? ”
I have nothing else to do, writing a novel is fun, but after that, I got nothing else to do.
Im bored so I started reading comments and reviews about my ongoing novel.
Many comments are positive but some are negative, they doesn affect me anymore, its pretty much normal anyway, I can satisfy everyone so I just continued writing based on my taste, not caring about them.
While reading the comments, I recieved a mail.
Out of boredom, I opened it.
”Whats this? ”
Its a weird and confusing mail.
[YOUR WORK HAS BEEN SELECTED BY A HIGHER BEING!]
[Congratulations! A Higher Being will use your work for their new creation! And in exchange, they will grant your wish, and add some bonus rewards too!]
”What the hell is this? ”
I frowned after reading the content of the mail, it just doesn make sense at all.
I was about to close the mail without replying, because replying will be just a waste of time.
When a bright light suddenly erupted from my whole body and dyed the whole room white.
”Argh! What the **? ”
The light coming from my body is so bright that it looks like that Im some godly shit that descended from heaven. Strangely though, the light doesn hurt my eyes, but I can see anything except the color white even if my eyes are closed because of it.
”What the ** happening?! ”
Okay, lets calm down.
I tried to calm myself down and started racking my brain.
But while Im thinking, I suddenly felt like Im being sucked into something.
”OKAY! WHAT THE FUCK IS HAPPENING?! THIS IS SO CREEPY! ”
I yelled unconsciously, I can see anything so Im panicking. Calling for help didn come in mind, why?
Because whats happening to me doesn feel dangerous, its just creepy and weird, and I bet nobody can help me in this kind of situation. Worst case scenario, the one trying to help me might get caught up in this phenomenon.
Im also an introvert with a small number of friends, so I bet nobody will help me anyway.
Yep, even in this weird happenings, Im still assessing the situation, I developed something when I was a kid, that in any occasion or happening, my thoughts or thinking capacity will still work properly.
Which is good because just panicking without thinking will not do anything good to me in any way.
So what conclusion I got in the midst of this situation by racking my brain?
So I just stopped struggling and shut my mouth.
”Thanks for nothing brain… ”
I mumbled as I stayed still.
Anything I do will be just a waste of time and energy, so I just went with the flow. Lets just wait and see what will happen, then decide what to do next after that.
Im bored anyway.
I stood still doing nothing, letting the weird sucking phenomenon have its way.
”This better be good. ”
Thats the last thing I remembered as my consciousness got cut off after that.
I don know how long I was out but when I regained my consciousness, I immediately opened my eyes and sat up.
And looking around me.
Is what I thought after seeing my surroundings, Im sitting on a bed, Im in a small unfamiliar room with very few furnitures, all the items in the room are just for a daily needs of a single individual.
”Theres no even TV. ”
I continued to look around.
First I thought that maybe Im in a hospital room, but theres no medical equipments in the room, so Its likely that Im not.
”Lets explore the room first. ”
I got up from the bed and started roaming around the room. Moving my body feels a bit weird but I thought its just the effect of the light before or me fainting so I didn mind it.
I mumbled seeing the room messy as hell, its like someones moving out.
”Lets clean up too while we
e on it. ”
I know this isn my room but the mess is bothering me, so while organizing my thoughts, Im also cleaning the room.
While cleaning, I went to the bathroom with the thought of checking the toilet, but as soon as I entered the bathroom, I got greeted by a huge mirror.
I was shocked.
The mirror got dirt marks all over it, so I started cleaning it.
Just after 5 minutes of cleaning the mirror, that I noticed that the mirror is reflecting, not me, but someone else I don know.
”Who the hell? ”
I started moving and the reflection moved the same way I did, I tried finding another mirror because maybe this one is just special, but all the mirrors I tried are the same.
”No way. ”
I mumbled. Disbelief washed all over my body as I sat on the bed while holding a small circular mirror.
Im not stupid so I know that either I got transmigrated into another body or the owner of this room is a jerk that bought defective mirrors and placed it all over the room.
Looking at the mirror in my hand again.
Its showing an average looking young man, all of his facial features are not worth mentioning except for his sharp eyes, and I think the sharp eyes are hella cool, he have black eyes and deep-black hair.
My previous body is also skinny but this body is skinnier, maybe because its almost the same as my previous body, moving now feels normal.
”Can someone explain me whats happening? ”
Right after I said that, a transparent window that just normally appears in fantasy stories or games appeared in front of me.
Looks like it came from the watch-like device Im wearing.
I was startled but calmed down right away because waking up in a different body is more surprising than this transparent window.
”Since when did I have this thing on me? ”
I asked looking at the watch device in my right wrist.
No answer came, just the transparent window remain, it have something written on it so I tried reading it.
[Hello you inferior being, be glad because whats happening to you right now is a rare thing! Just shut up and your additional rewards will be given with a few explanation soon.]
I don who sent this message but it sure is cocky.
Not long after that, another transparent window appeared before me, then letters started to appear in it.
[You recieved 2 traits and 1 skill!]
Is what it said.
After reading whats on the window, I can help but tilt my head.
”What is that for? ”
I asked, luckily(?) I recieved a reply from the same window, the letters changed as a form of replying to my question.
[Please shut up, Ill explain it soon.]
When I read its reply, a frown formed in my face.
[Bastard, I can read your thoughts.]
Then better you shit.
Looks like I can communicate with this thing.
[Call me System punk.]
The system doesn just project words and sentences to communicate with me, I can hear a voice inside my mind saying the same thing what the system writes in real time, so I concluded that the voice inside my head and the system are the same.
The voice sounds robotic that its hard to distinguish if its from a boy or a girl, but Im sure annoyed hearing voice inside my head.
”Whatever, just start explaining things to me. ”
[Then shut up, well anyway you recieved 2 traits and 1 skill.]
”I know, you just said that earlier. ”
After a pause, the system continued, ignoring my words.
[Well anyway, this is what you recieved:]
After the system said that, a new transparent window appeared.
Right before me are the so called rewards that I recieved.
”Hey system, what are this for? ”
[Try pressing the rewards, they have explanations attached with them.]
I immediately pressed the only skill in the rewards and another blueish transparent window appeared.
-Lets you emit pressure or aura of an monarch. This skill reacts on your emotions.
-The skills strength is based on how much mana you use and the skills level.
Staring at the explanation in front of me made my heart beat faster, Im getting excited, I don know why, but its a good feeling for me.
[You recieved that skill because you are like the creator of this place.]
”Me? Creator? Why? ”
[Check the other things you got first, Tsk, you
e so nosy.]
I know the system have a point but I really want to slap it.
Too bad my hand just pass through it.
What a shame.
[Bitch, what did you just tried to do?]
I ignored the weird hing and checked the first rait I got.
-Makes it easier for you to understand and learn things, it also improve your memory drastically.
”This is what I really need right now as I still don understand whats going on. ”
I said with a smile as soon as I read its effects.
[The Higher Being also predicted that thats the case, so they personally selected
The system said.
”Ohh, really? That Higher Being thing is so nice… And here I thought you
e the Higher Being, guess you
e just a product huh. ”
[Well, Im still a superior being than you so nothing change, peasant.]
”Your insult is getting harsher by time. ”
”Aren I like… Your customer? ”
Then the system tried to insult me more.
”I never met my mom. ”
I casually replied.
Then an awkward silence engulfed the room.
[Shit, Im sorry.]
The system apologized, its pretty creepy honestly.
”No its fine, I don care either way, growing up without parents is better than growing up with irresponsible one. ”
Thats my personal opinion.
[Just… Sorry. The last rait is what I selected for you, I was just created like an hour ago just to help you as one of your rewards, and I already have the knowledges I need to help you.]
I don know why, but the system got surprisingly nice and started explaining about itself. I pressed the last rait that is to be said the system picked just for me.
-Uses attentions that you gained to boost your growth.
-The strength of the growth boost changes based on how much attentions you are receiving.
I blankly looked at the transparent window as I re-read the traits description again and again.
After snapping out from my daze, my head shifted at the systems direction and glared at it.
”You bitch! Are you telling me to become a attention whore?! ”
[Well… First, I picked that just to mess with you… Sorry.]
I didn talked and just continued to glare at the system.
[But hey look, it will help you on your training, right? Im sure that you need it.]
”How am I gonna need it? ”
I asked with a hint of curiosity.
Why would I need to train anyway?
[Check your status.]
The system said.
I looked at it doubtfully for a second then…
I muttered in my mind.
And another transparent window appeared in front of me.
[Oh, you can open it without me teaching you.]
”Im not that stupid, people with common sense can do that too. ”
I read a lot of fantasy novels so I know.
I then scanned through My status.
”But isn this stats way too low? what happened to the charm? ”
I don know anything about this status thing, but seeing the Fs, I know its not good.
”And my new name is Raven? It have the same meaning as my previous name, just cooler. ”
After that, I started asking the system questions to quench the questions running through my head.
