[Host has completed the Hidden quest]

"Huh? what's this?"

Gustav paused his steps as he saw the notification.

-"Get out of the way kid!"

His stopping in the middle of the walkway caused some people to voice out in dissatisfaction.

Gustav only moved to the side and found a sidewalk bench to sit on.

This sidewalk bench was about a hundred meters away from the next teleportation circle which Gustav was supposed to travel through.

Gustav stared at the notification as he sat.

-----------------------------

[Host has completed hidden quest]

[Hidden quest details: (Three people have shown malicious intent towards you! Kill/Inflict serious injuries on them!]

[Quest rewards]

<1000 exp>

<+2 additional attributes point added to all stats>

<Genetic transformation Bloodline upgrade>

<Dash level up>

-----------------------------

Gustav stared at the system with a surprised look.

"Turns out dealing with them brought multiple rewards," Gustav said with a smile.

Gustav didn't regret one bit of what he did. If he was given the chance to do it again he would even make the experience worse for those three since he knew he would be punished either way.

Gustav opened the system interface to check his current stats.

-----------------------------

[Host Attributes]

-Name: Gustav Oslov

-Level: 3

-Class: ?

-Exp: 1500/2000

-Hp: 150/150

-Energy: 20/50

{Attributes}

»Strength - 15

»Perception - 13

»Agility - 12

»Speed - 14

»Bravery - 7

»Intelligence - 14

»Charm - null

{Attributes point - 0}

---------------------------

He had checked bravery when he was being judged in the disciplinary committee and was surprised to see the amount. At that time his bravery went straight up to five. It didn't start with one like the other stats.

Gustav could really feel the improvement within his body. It had been almost two weeks since he got the system. Seeing the speed of his transformation made him believe that in the next six months he would have gotten to the Zulu rank.

Gustav decided to check the skills and abilities panel.

-------------------------

{Skills and Abilities]

»Dash - Level 2

»Regeneration - Level 1

»Morph - Level 1

»Toxin immunity - Level 1

»Recreation - Level 1

»Bloodline acquisition level 1

--------------------------

His eyes focused on dash for a few seconds before a piece of information popped up beneath it.

--------------------------

»Dash - level 2

(Ability to increase current speed by 25 for ten seconds)

--------------------------

'This means the power of dash has increased by 25%' Gustav calculated.

His current speed without dash, gave him the ability to travel up to five feet in a single movement.

His full speed right now without using dash is comparable to earth's fastest man in the past. In fact, he was slightly faster than him.

If he decided to use dash now, twenty five points would be added to his speed.

Gustav had a feeling of excitement just thinking about it but he couldn't use it right now since his energy was low.

Using dash earlier consumed 20 energy points. He was sure that the consumption rate would have increased now that dash leveled up.

Gustav decided to open the bloodline panel to check his bloodline upgrade.

--------------------------

[Bloodlines]

<Genetic Transformation Bloodline>

Grade: F

<Abilities tied to bloodline: Morph>

--------------------------

Gustav smiled as he noticed the grade which was always null earlier had now changed to F.

'This means my bloodline can keep increasing in grade,' Gustav had this suspicion earlier but now that he was seeing it with his eyes, he was now totally convinced.

Last week when he checked out the Bloodline category he saw »Genetic Transformation Bloodline«

The name made him feel confused but after some time he understood that this was the name of his current useless bloodline. This name was something he had never encountered before in all his years of reading about the different types of bloodlines.

Not only was it unknown, but it was also considered to be below F-grade until he got the system.

When he checked it earlier, null but now it was F-grade.

Gustav wondered what this upgrade had improved within him but he didn't notice any differences.

After checking for a while, he shrugged his shoulders, 'Maybe I won't see it just yet,' he thought.

"I wonder if when I steal a bloodline I will also be able to upgrade it with this system?" Gustav wondered out loud.

There was no one to answer the ton of questions he had now regarding this new power but he believed that with time he would slowly come to understand how things work.

Gustav decided to head home at this point so he could complete his daily task.

He was lucky not to find anyone at home again but this time he started wondering why Endric and his mother had been coming late.

After thinking for a while he decided not to sweat it and started lifting the couch.

This time Gustav was able to lift the entire couch together. The two-seaters in his left hand and the three-seater in his right hand.

"Hnn!" "Hnn!" "Hnn!" "Hnn!" "Hnn!" "Hnn!"

There was no trace of discomfort on his face as he lifted them up. It looked almost natural and to him, the sofas felt light.

After lifting them up and down for a few minutes a notification rang in his mind.

[Daily task completed (3/3): carry a total of 1750 kilogramsâś“]

Gustav did the usual, distributing the attributes points evenly.

He changed out of his school uniform into a tight brown singlet and short green boxers.

He brought out a small button from his pants pocket as he sat
