After Faith said that their body can get stronger like a character from a video game Nate was delighted by that and since there were levels and Hp that he figured out what type of game their body is from. And he loved that kind of game since he can get better at it the more time he spends on it.
At first, when he saw his grandson Max play a game named Final Hero, a game about nobody named Shaun that had no skills or talent that went on a journey to prove himself, and after a long harsh journey, he saved the country that he came from.
Max didn’t like the game that much he wanted another one but his parents bought this one by mistake so he plays it once and because the storyline was cringy and the graphics were bad he didn’t want to play it anymore but because that his grandfather watch it while he plays it he nag to play whenever he came to visit until Max taught how to play it.
Nate thought it would be hard to learn how to play but Max told him it was simply that he only need to use one button and the arrows and nothing more than that, after that Nate stopped nagging Max about playing the game instead he was doing that after he finished it, he felt he need to find more games like that.
After Faith finished her talk Nate started to explore his statue so he can figure what to do if they encounter danger, after a couple of minutes he started to yell “yes I know that I was right before it was not hallucinations”
Faith was startled by his yelling so she gained some distance from him and said while preparing to run away from him “what is going on, why are you yelling” she asked
He opened his eye he was puzzled as to why she trying to keep his distance between them even if he tried to approach her and he understood too why she was doing that so he stopped and said “I am sorry yet again for yelling like that I just felt much better after knowing that I was right”
“Ok so can you tell me what you were right about that drove you to yell like that in middle of place in a dangerous place that you just told me that there are multiple dangerous being that lives in here” said Faith while hoping that no one heard him yelling
Nate hit himself then he put his hand on his face and said “shit I just was so happy about this that I might put us in danger, we need to go somewhere else or we just waiting for something to come and eat us”
“I know that we need to do that but you remember that we found this place by chance I do not think that we would be able to find another place like this in this forest”
Nate smiled then he closed his eyes and said “why do we need to keep in this place since we have the map we can get out of this place” then he opened his eyes then he walked toward Faith and before she did anything he said “we need to go now before it became too late, so will you go with me or not” then he extends his hand to her.
Faith did not want to have anything with Nate after what happened before but from the look of it, he understands this world better than she is for now so she grabbed his hand then said “for now we will go together I just hope your act change in our way out of this forest”
On their way out of the forest, his head started to hurt yet again but it was not as bad as before, Faith got worried that he might not be able to move because of the headache.
Nate notices that so he told her to comfort her “you do not need to worry I figured out why my head is hurting right now, the status menu that Ron told you about, I figured that I have a skill named Animal Instinct that would warn me if I am in danger”
“Wait a minute this skill is very useful” said Faith
Nate said while scratching his head “well but the problem with it that sometimes like before it would hurt my head so much that I would not be able to move I think that not good in a situation like that”
“Yeah so what can you do about it, can you turn it off”
Nate was about to say something but he suddenly stopped moving and before Faith made any noise he shushed her and pointed behind them, and suggested that she does not make any sudden move they carefully went behind some tree and waited patiently then there was a huge like bear move to the same direction as them.
Nate knew that if Faith saw that thing that she might make a noise that the bear might notice them so he closed her eyes and whispered to her “calm down you do not need to worry just take a deep breath”
After the monster passed them Nate collapsed on the ground and said “shit. I did not think that I will meet something like this right now” he turned to Faith her face was pale and look like she can’t move right now.
Nate looked around and it appeared because of the giant bear that there is nothing around them for now, he told her that she can rest and he is going to search for some food if he can find any.
After some time with some mushrooms and other things most of them were unedible so Faith throw away, and the others she did not even know what type of plants are so they discard them after some rest Faith said "we better go now we do not know when that thing will come back"
After what they saw both Nate and Faith were sure if they kept going like before they would encounter something like the bear before and they wouldn’t be as lucky, so they decided it would be better for them to be careful while they walking. After walking for some time there were a lot of questions that Faith wanted to ask but didn’t know when she can have the chance to ask them, so just waited when they rest then she would ask. Nate started to get tired and from the look of it they are not even close to exit the forest, he turned to Faith to suggest that maybe they can rest then he saw that she was far away from him so he waited for her to catch up then he sat down then he suggested that they should rest for now. Faith took this chance to ask “can you tell me more about the menu and the things that in it, I didn’t understand anything from what Ron said to me” Faith regretted that she asks this question after she saw his reaction. Nate always wanted f
Nate started to explain to her if they going to be in a group of people then each one of them needs to know their role “there are different types of roles in the party like Support, DPS, tanks, and other things” he talked for while about this, then he notices that Faith looked confused. Nate said “ok this is my fault I should know that you won’t understand what I am talking about since you don’t play games” “This great I guess, so how will you explained for me to understand” Nate stood up and walked around while humming then he stopped and said “I get I think I should give example so you would get understand what I am talking about” he pointed at himself “well you see I can’t do much damage and I have a high defense and with my skills, I would be a tanker, a tanker would be someone that would be able to attract the enemies attention to him or her” “How did you figure that out,” Faith asked “I was with you the whole time? So when did you have the
Since Nate has some knowledge they both decided that it would be good that he would the leader until they got out of the forest. But they had a big problem since they didn’t have anything that would be useful to fight anyone, so Nate told Faith that they should avoid fighting as much as possible since there would be a high chance of injury. When Nate explained most of the spells to Faith they started to move again, there were not any problem or any monsters attack after this because they were more careful than before after the rabbit and the giant bear, they had with some bugs but they were not in danger because of them. When they were about to exit the forest suddenly Nate’s head started to hurt and it was worse than when they were searching for Lucy, Nate needed some time to adjust to what happened to him, Faith tried to help Nate by using one of her spells but she didn’t how to cast it neither did Nate. After multiple failed tries, Faith came with an idea
When Faith heard that she got scared from what will happen, then she thought a lot about it, she can’t do anything by herself and Nate can’t help her so the only logical thing to do is asked Ivan to help her and she would do like what he told her and not say anything to anyone no matter. “Great,” said Ivan after she agreed when Faith heard that she realized that maybe there is something that Ivan didn’t say but she didn’t give that much thought about because the only thing that she now cares about is getting out of the forest. “So how will you help me,” said Faith thinking he is still in the same place where she met him, Ivan told her that he will get to her as fast as possible so she does not need to worry about anything and just stand still in her place. After few seconds of him saying that bit by bit he started to appear in front of her at first she wanted to run away from the thing that was appearing in front of her but she was sure that she wouldn’t be a
After securing a safe place for Nate, Faith and Ivan started to move to face the monster waiting for them at the forest entrance. Right before the exit Ivan turned to Faith “you should be ready for this, are you sure that you can cast any of the attacking spells” “Of course,” said Faith while she didn’t even use any of them but she didn’t think there will be any problem at all, she thought that it would be like when she healed Nate “I am sure that I would be able to cast with no problem at all” she looked distracted for a bit after few minutes she asked “I am not sure which spells that I should use, can you tell me which one that would be the best against it” Ivan said with no hesitation “lighting, would be the best spell for that monster, if it is the same spell that I think of you do not need to even get close to that thing because that spell has a wide range so the moment we got out you should start casting that spell because it would take a long tim
Ron figured out that there is someone else that suggested to Faith to cast a spell-like this, he wanted to ask Faith about it but it was not the right time for him to do this, he needed to stop the spell before it finished. The best thing that Ron thought of is to attack Faith before she finished casting a spell but he was not that sure of himself that he could control his power, he didn’t want to kill Faith by mistake so he turned to Khalid hoping that he would be able to do it. Ron explained it to Khalid, he didn’t want to do this because he wasn’t confidant enough in himself, Ron figured that out by what he got before so he told him “you don’t need to worry about anything if I notice that you do something that would hurt her I will stop you” Khalid was still anxious about this whole thing since it would be the first time to do such a thing and no matter what Ron said it just didn’t have any effect on him that when Faith started to cough blood and Khalid go
On the way back Khalid found it much harder to keep with Ron than before because of Faith he tried his hardest but it was no use after they got to the village the first person that they saw was Lucy when she saw Faith she started to cry, Khalid wanted to calm her but Ron stopped him and told him it would be faster if he let him handle this and Khalid should just stand there. Khalid didn’t understand why he told that but it is not like he can’t do anything and from what happened before he might make it worse so he just does it, after Ron and Lucy leaving Orean approach Khalid and asked if the people that were at the entrance of the forest were their friends. “Well one of them was there,” said Khalid “and the other one was passed out in the forest” Orean got worried after hearing that there one person with that much power that no one knows who that person is but then from what happen that person was after the lizard so he was not a danger to the village and tha
After being able to move, Khalid was sure that Orean the cause of what happened to him, so the moment that he was able to move he went to the door that, Orean looked at the person that hit him and said “look at what you have done now he will run away before hearing my request” The woman said “ are you kidding me, you kidnapped that young man, and what do you think will do after you did something like that to him do you think that he would listen to anything you would say after doing something like that” Orean could not think of a response for that but yet he could not just take it like that so he started to yell thinking if he did that she just would let it go and not argue with him but she couldn’t take it any longer and she started to yell back at him. After fifteen minutes of yelling at each other the woman notices that Khalid returned to the room that they were in she was surprised as to why he would do such a thing so she said “why did you come back”
