37. Noise

37. Noise



A wooden man about 3M tall, with roots as legs and branches as arms, stomped out.

Eroded Forest, Act 1, Stage 1.

It was the appearance of the boss, the ‘Fallen Forest Spirit’.

“Be careful! It is different from the guys who have appeared so far!”

“Anyway, it’s just a piece of wood!”

“Aww, really… ! Dark Shield!”

Selene blindly rushes forward and sees Allen. As if getting tired of it, she applied a buff skill to Allen.

One of Selene’s basic skills, Dark Shield, is a type of curse, and it couldn’t protect someone against its name.

Instead, if someone attacks the target while Dark Shield is applied, the curse will move and take away the vitality.



The boss’s arm swinging at Allen wearing a dark shield.


With a small spirit, Allen, who blocked her by crossing his arms, lets out a small moan.

Immediately, curses with a purple effect spread and attacked the target that attacked the shield, causing the forest spirit to tremble and suffer.

Allen, who didn’t miss the opportunity, immediately tried to rush.


In terms of a human, the tree spirit was greatly staggered by the fist attack that continued on the inner side of the thigh.

“I’ll go join you too.”

“…… Okay.”

Leaving Cruella down, Yuseong also ran forward.

‘I can’t just let them have fun!’

Finally, I finally found someone worthy of using the Ether Blade.

Yoosung got between Allen and the boss and drew her sword.

Even in the eroded forest, time always stops.

Summons the Ether Blade and cuts it almost 12 times in about 9 seconds.

Time moves again.


“Kuo Oh Ok!”


A boss monster who gets shocked and falls to his knees.

“Now. With her feet tied, a big attack.”

“Okay! Ooooo!”

“Dark Hill!”

Allen gathered her mana into her right arm and used the life energy Selene had saved to cast Dark Heal.

When cast on an ally, Dark Heal becomes a heal, but when cast on an enemy, it becomes a curse that eats away his health.

“Maximum Strike!”


As if she thought she had gathered enough strength, Allen shouted the skill name with all her might and slapped her kneeling boss in the face.

With a slap, the shaded part like a person’s face is smashed at once and blown away.

Maximum Strike is a one-shot technique that delivers the maximum amount of mana in a single shot.

Allen is an idiot, so he proudly shouts out her technical name, which is such a shame for her.

“Kuuuuu… ….”



After the boss monster has exhausted its strength, it will wither and twist in an instant.

“Whoa! Is it over?”

It’s a pity that the boss doesn’t come back to life after a cliché came out of Allen’s mouth, but for now, it can be said that the situation is over.

[ You have completed Main Quest Chapter Ⅰ- 01. ]

[ Obtained 50 Experience Aggregates. ]

Now that the quest has been completed.

Now, the only thing left to do is get out of here.

“From what I’ve heard, if you’ve made it this far, you should be able to return to the original world.”

“Really? All right…….”

Selene let out a sigh of relief.

Allendo, Cruellado.

He doesn’t say anything, but his face is clearly relieved.


“Yes, princess.”

“This thing. It must have something to do with all 11 people gathered at the beginning….”


“…… When I get back, I’ll put them together right away. I want you to explain what you went through there.”



Not long after he answered, darkness fell over the world.

When I came to my senses, it was my dorm room as it was in the morning.

‘For now, this is perfect. Everything is as expected.’

Go to the pocket dimension.

4 People selected at random to clear Stage 1 of Act 1.

The quest has been completed, and I have returned to the original world.

Excluding the small commotion with Adriana, everything is within the margin of error of the simulation I had in my head.

‘As it is…… Can I just go on with this feeling?’

Perhaps tomorrow, or today at the earliest, Cruella will summon all 11 people he met at the pocket level.

All you have to do is hide and explain everything, then continue to raise your specs and deal with the situation in front of you.

‘Okay. Let’s keep going like this from now on.’

It was just when Yoosung thought that.

< ■■ ■■ ■■ ■■■■■■ >

< ■■ ■■■■ ■■■ ■■■■ ■■■■ ■■■ ■■ ■■■■■■■■ >

< ■■ ■■ ■■■■ ■■■■■ >


Some strange message was displayed.

All characters are strangely broken and unreadable.

‘This…… Doesn’t it feel similar to the one on that bugged sword?’

Yooseong hurriedly looked at the weapon information.

It can’t be said to be exactly the same, but it was broken in a similar shape, and something that didn’t even look like a letter was floating in the air.

[ Main Quest Chapter Ⅰ 「■■」 ]

02. ■■■ ■■ ■■■ ■■■■■ ■■ ■■■■■■

■■ : ■■■■■ ■■■

Another new message was about quests, except for the second quest in chapter one.

Yooseong looked at the messages with a serious expression.

Why did this happen all of a sudden?

I’m not sure, but Yooseong seems to be starting something unknown.

‘What I can guess now is… ….’

First of all, you should think about whether this situation suddenly appeared or was planned.

If this is an error.

What if this is also an error and the story doesn’t progress properly in the future, like the bug that causes the world to pause on this sword?

Then speculation cannot go any further than this.

If that happens, the future is completely unknown.

Whatever happened, I had no choice but to improvise.

‘But if this is planned.’

Game possession does not guarantee that what will happen in the future is the same as the game story.

Right now Yoosung is working on a concept with great admiration, just as he is building a very different human relationship from the original Yoosung.

The story of the game could also have been prepared with a special scenario just for the possessed person.

‘Then the trigger must be contacting the other side of the dimension.’

I had a feeling that an anomaly could happen sooner or later.



However, it came earlier than expected.

Yooseong is standing in the class D’s dormitory room.

However, the surrounding space, starting with the bed, was becoming pixelated and disappearing as if the game graphics were broken.

ㅡ Gigijijik. Support position.

‘This sound… ….’

In my ears, I heard a sound I had heard somewhere.

It was a sound I had only heard once in my life, but I immediately recognized what it was.

‘Then. It’s the sound I heard in the game right before I was possessed.’

As soon as I recognized that, something strange crawled out of the crack in the space.

A cluster of shiny dark gray dots.

Commonly referred to as noise, broken graphics, or Missingno, a being that is appropriately crawled out and moved.

“…… !”

Goose bumps all over my body, and my nerves stand sharp.

ㅡ A support position. Support position.

The distance was only about 2M.

Slowly but surely, it’s coming this way.

‘What should I do?’

First, pull out your sword and cut it?

Would an attack work on that being?

‘Let’s run away for now?’

Yooseong turned her head toward her door.

…… The door had already been strangely distorted.

Somehow, it seems impossible to get out of this space.

Should I say it feels like a prison map created to imprison users in an online game?

‘I have an ominous feeling.’

Yuseong, who couldn’t possibly see that broken graphic block as an ally, changed the ether blade to the second form.

For now, let’s attack with the maximum power we can.

It’s uneasy to attack, but it seemed better than staying still and being touched.


The sword was drawn.

I thought that maybe that guy wouldn’t be subject to time stop, but it doesn’t seem to be the case.

Seeing it stopped like that.


Take a deep breath.

Close your eyes and enter the mind-eye state.

‘Prick a weak point.’

Pooh! Awesome! Awesome! Hooked! Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!

Damage was inflicted as much as possible by utilizing weakness identification and weakness stabbing, which can only be used while Mind’s Eye is applied.

Since the Ether Blade, which changed into its second form and turned into a blue dagger, dealt additional damage, the damage itself must be considerable.

The problem is that he’s not a normal guy…….

Yoosung stepped back and put the scabbard on his sword.


ㅡ Gigijijik.

As soon as the time stop was lifted, the broken graphics scattered into dozens of chunks.

ㅡ A support position. Found, support….

At the same time, I felt like I heard something intelligible in the noise.

‘Did you find it? Did you find it?’

ㅡ Finally… Success… Suitable person… Help… soon….


Then, the broken chunks of data disappeared as if they were being absorbed into the floor.

Looking around, the inside of the dorm room had already returned to normal.

“Whoa… ….”

Nothing seems to have been resolved, but I am relieved that the surrounding scenery has returned to normal.

By the way, I definitely said it.

‘I found it. Success work. Suitable person. Help. Soon. What the hell does this mean?’

Smart smart!

While Yoosung was contemplating, someone suddenly knocked on the door.

“Meteor Cadet. Are you inside?”

Yoosung replied startled.

“Yes. What are you doing?”

“This is a call from Cruella.”

When I opened the door, there was a woman wearing a different uniform from the cadet uniform and the instructor uniform, making a gesture as if she would guide me.

She was an employee in the academy’s administrative office.

‘I think we really decided to get together right away. She’s also quick to act.’

First of all, I thought I should think about this later and focus on this side for now.

“Let’s go right away.”

Following the guidance, Meteor headed for Cruella’s office.

Opening the door, she immediately saw Cruella standing there.

…… Even before entering her, meeting her eyes makes me feel awkward.

Yooseong went inside and asked how she was doing.

“Are you feeling better?”

“Yes, thanks. You came first I have called the other cadets, so they will come soon.”

Perhaps thanks to what happened in her dimension, Cruella’s way of talking to the meteor was quite like talking to her close subordinate.
