"Tring! Tring!" I woken up by the sound of the alarm, I woke up by the sound of the alarm.
Just as I woke up, I quickly checked my right pocket, I sighed relief seeing my s.p.a.ce pocket is still there.
It was not the dream! I said to myself, the events of yesterday were really quite unbelievable that made me think if it weren't all the dream.
There is only faint light coming from the sky, there is still time to dawn fully broke through.
Rhea had already woken up and making food with Ashlyn help, I got quite surprised seeing that as till now only I was cooking.
All the spices that I had brought with me are used in the cooking food and the only salt had but it will last for three days at maximum.
By the time I had to freshen up, the outside had become visible but Rhea and Ashlyn are still cooking the hog on fire.
Yesterday when we were looking for the camp we come across peak Specialist grade hog which Rhea killed quickly with the help new knight grade shoes and sword.
With the help of those two Knight grade artifacts Rhea's power has more than doubled, now she can peak Specialist grade monsters within five minutes.
"Chew chew!" Ashlyn chirped in pride while providing the fire for Rheas cooking.
"I thought I should cook today and your little birdy offered to help, them who I am to refuse to help!" said Rhea, "Chew chew!" Ashlyn chirped again but this time she asking for praise.
"Ashlyn is such good girl!" I said as I patted her feathers, she again chirped in happiness before coming back to her indifferent self.
In fifteen minutes the hog is fully cooked, as I take a bite of the meat, I found it surprisingly tasty and itis only cooked with salt.
"It's really tasty!" I praised Rhea while eating, "Thanks, I learned it in pa.s.sing," she replied after we finished eating we pack the leftover food for the night, seeing how much food is left, I don't think we will have to cook in the night.
"We didn't cover much distance yesterday," Rhea said as she looked at the map, I nodded yesterday we were busy doing the job for Shawn and Carol and didn't walk much toward our destination.
"We will have to two days, at most three to reach that lake, hopefully, we will find some people there," Rhea said.
"We will definitely," I said, going home is a most important thing, this realm is good for practice but as long as we didn't find a secure way for home there always be uncertainty in our heart that will drive us to madness.
We started walking like always while killing the monsters that come into our way, our enthusiasm is high due to the fortune we made yesterday.
There is only one dangerous spot on the way to the lake that is a small valley. we will have to cross that valley to reach the lake.
The valley is dangerous but we have to cross because if we walk around the valley, it will take us near a week to reach the lake and we can't afford to lose that much time.
I have been pus.h.i.+ng my Refinement Engine extra hard since yesterday, Rhea's skill also has a condition 80% mana purity and her mana already had reached the purity of 80% reversing she entered this realm.
Rhea is saying that she will be able to perform her skill within a week of study.
I will not be much behind her as I already started studying the skill and if my luck is good, my mana purity will reach within ten days and that time I will also able to perform the skill.
Time pa.s.sed by and we had reached near the valley, We could see it with our eyes and it would take little more than an hour to reach it.
We had decided to camp by valley for today and enter the valley tomorrow as we think it would take us whole day or more to cross the valley.
''Chew chew chew!" Ashlyn called out, as we look we saw a feline monster coming toward us.
It is half a meter in length and has aqua white stripped all over it's a coat.
This realm has many unidentified beasts, that we cant seemed to know, "Chew chew chew!" chirped Ashlyn saying she wanted to fight.
She had already had asked earlier many times to fight, I said no to that thinking it will waste a lot of time but now seeing we are very close to the valley, I decided to let her fight the monster.
"Ok, you can fight but finish it quickly," I said, giving in to her wishes.
"Chew chew!" she chirped loudly and flew toward that feline monster, I and Rhea stood some distance away watching the fight.
"Boom!" Ashly threw away the fireball at the feline monster but it dodges nimbly and attacked with water needles from the coat.
I was quite surprised seeing water type attack as it is the first monster I've seen so far which could do water type attack.
This is ranged domain type attack, it will be difficult for me to kill it if I am not wearing my armor.
Ashlyn effortlessly dodges the water needle and again attack with the fireball, after entering specialist grade her fire had before more lethal and she can control it more easily and that why she took less time to construct fireball that before.
It keeps going on, attack and dodges all over but no monster ever able to hit another.
Suddenly Ashlyn changed her strategy and started to attack with fist size fireball than palm size fireball and because of that her speed of constructing fireball had increased and the feline monster is a hard time avoiding Ashlyn attack despite its nimbleness.
"Growl!" the feline monster growled as Ashlyn fire grazed past is a coat.
We thought it will attack Ashlyn in retribution but it ran away, it ran away so fast that we barely noticed it's running away, it was really sudden turn that feline monster took.
"Ashlyn don't follow it!" I shouted seeing Ashlyn about to follow it.
"Chew chew!" Ashlyn chirped in indignation, "Don't worry Ashlyn, you will get many chances to fight after we entered the valley," I said to Ashlyn.
