Mathieu is feeling happy as he is finally able to see Sid after almost a week. He pretended to be sick and returned to the heavens to recover some of his powers. He also took care of those bug-faced girls who were bullying Sid.However, despite his cheerfulness, Mathieu felt strange as he looked at Sid. She was bawling last night in distress, yet Sid seems to have forgotten what happened last night.He was pissed because of Oneiroi's interference. He failed to prevent Sid from becoming a dream killer, but he was relieved that he managed to save her from the last attempt by the dream killer to kill Sid.Mathieu sighed. It's only been a few days since they last saw each other, but Sidereae became noticeably thinner."That sandwich won't be enough to fill you up," Mathieu said, cutting the fried pork from his lunch. "Here, eat this instead."Sid opened her mouth and ate the piece of fried pork without hesitation. Because she wasn't able to eat her breakfast, Sid's stomach had been grumbl
Oneiroi cackled as he couldn't hold his excitement after seeing the mark of a dream killer appearing in Sidereae's body."Ah! Can you see it Beniah? A dream killer from the Lirrian finally appeared!" Oneiroi shouted in delight. He has been waiting for a long time for this incredible moment.There hadn't been a single dream killer among the Lirrian dreamers. They were strong and intelligent enough to immobilize or avoid dream killers, and if they were in pinch, the Lirrian dreamers had strong luck to overcome or escape a scenario where they had to face the dream killers.Oneiroi wouldn't call it cowardice, but rather, it was their pride as a dreamer. The Lirrians hated the fact of becoming a dream killer. They would rather choose to die than kill another dreamer.There was a reason why a dreamer could kill a dreamer.Dreams represent the collection of thoughts, struggles, emotions, events, people, places, and symbols relevant to the dreamer and shape the individual's identity and an im
"Be careful when meeting another dreamer. You'll never know if he has good or bad intentions for you. Because you'll end up in a dire situation if a dreamer has a malicious intent towards you.""Remember this Sidereae...only a dreamer can kill a dreamer.""How can I tell when someone is a dreamer like me?""By instinct. It's hard to explain, but dreamers can recognize other dreamers instinctively. It's like how animals can tell if you're part of their kin or not."I recalled my conversation with Oneiroi after dying as Saintess Lucia. And by the looks of it, this man is dangerous.His black eyes were sharp and exuded an air similar to a predator. I wouldn't be surprised if he suddenly dashed in my direction and attacked me.I fought the creeping fear inside me and braced myself for any possible attacks from the black-eyed man."Nira?""Get ready!" I shouted to Eric and Layla as the man dashed toward me.KLANG!A loud sound reverberated to the dungeon walls as his axe glistened with mur
I wonder what will happen if I choose to stay in this world. Will my body die in the waking world? Since my soul leaves my body every time I travel, it would be right to assume that my body is in a state of being alive and dead at the same time.As I learned more about being a dreamer, it made more sense why dad seems lethargic sometimes as one of the side effects. It also makes sense now why his pulse was faint, and his body gets colder whenever he fell asleep.I let out a satisfied groan while massaging my stiff shoulders to relieve my muscle tension. I decided to put aside my thoughts and enjoy this relaxing bath in the meantime.After spending 15 minutes soaking in the warm water, I stepped out of the bath as I was feeling sleepy. I headed back to my room, and the maidservant quickly followed with a tray of food in her hand to deliver my dinner.* * *I stretched my body after leaving the inn. I feel refreshed after sleeping in a proper bed because we've been camping and sleeping
Nira is almost out of breath as she's trying to outrun the monster wanting to kill them. Huff. Huff. Huff. 'Damnit! I'm almost out of mana, and my health is nearly depleted. We need to get out of this dungeon as soon as possible. If we don't want to be the dinner for these creatures!' "Aahh!" Nira looked back and saw Layla stumbled on the ground. "Shit! Eric, do you still have mana? Back me up for a bit." "Alright." A magic circle appeared, and several fireballs floated in the air. Nira unsheathed her sword and ran back to save Layla. Layla crawled, and the monster behind her threw its arm to catch her. "Skill: Frost Slash!" A blue aura covered Sid's sword as she ran towards the monster. She swung her sword, and a cold gust of wind flew towards the monster's arm. A thin layer of ice crept onto the monster's wound and covered the severed arm that fell on the ground. Eric fired his fireballs toward the monster as Sid helped Layla to get up. "I sprained my leg!" Layla cried.
My suspension finally ended, and I was able to attend classes from now on while expecting to see my desk filled with trash and curses.I was a bit nervous when I entered the class, knowing I would see Linda and her friends again. But to my surprise, Linda and her gang were absent. I heard from my gossiping classmates that they got into an accident when they skipped a day from their community service to go to the beach.I don't want to be a jerk, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't happy about it.Anyone would feel relieved and satisfied, knowing that their bullies are finally getting hit by karma.I have no idea how long they will stay at the hospital, but for the time being, I will be enjoying my peaceful days without them."Serves them right," I whispered with a smirk.My mind started to wander as the class progressed. I couldn't focus on the teacher's lectures because my mind was bothered by Oneiroi's words, and I couldn't help but question myself.How do I feel about Mathieu?
Everything hurts.I feel like my body will break every time I take a step. It was already in the middle of the night, and I couldn't sleep because of the pain. So, I decided to go downstairs and look for painkillers.Fortunately, when Mathieu dropped me off earlier, mom and her family went out for dinner. I was relieved because I was practically shaking when I entered the house, fearing that mom would see and criticize me.I grimaced as I slowly and quietly descended the stairs. It took me some time to finally arrive at the stairs' bottom. After catching my breath, I slowly walked to the kitchen and carefully opened the drawers to find the medicine.I found the medi
"I-It can't be?!" Idris whispered with her eyes wide open. She could move in shock as she recognized him. He has the same face and the same mismatched eyes as Sidereae. Her feet which were glued to the ground run toward the door. She stretched her arm to reach him as tears welled up in her eyes. "Dad! Dad!" Idris called but Elknox only look at her before turning his back and disappearing into thin air. * * * "Dad, don't leave!" Sidereae woke up from her dream with her hand reaching out into the air. "...ah," she uttered in despair. This is the reason why Sid loathed being awakened from her dream. She finally saw her father. Elknox was so close for her to reach him, yet she was abruptly brought back to this ugly reality. I wish can stay in that place a little longer. Long enough to reach dad. Sid drew her hand back and briefly closed her eyes to recall Elknox's image. He still has the soft and warm appearance that Sid remembered. "It wasn't bad at all because I was able to
