"Huh? I'm not dead?"

Gustav woke up to find himself lying in the middle of the forest.

He slowly picked himself up and dusted the dirt on his clothes. He was still in his school uniform.

"I'm not even injured in the slightest," He noticed after checking his body out.

The sun was slowly rising from the east as rays of light permeated through the spaces within the leaves on the tree ahead of him.

"An entire night has passed?" Gustav's eyes widened in shock after realizing this, but in the next second, it went back to normal. "It's not like anyone would notice that I was gone anyways," He muttered dejectedly.

He turned around to glance at the mountain where he fell from when he noticed something blinking in his line of sight positioned at the left corner.

His eyes focused on the blue rectangular blinking light, and something unexpected happened.

-[Welcome host!]

Characters suddenly appeared in his line of sight.

"Eh, What's this?" Gustav voiced out with a look of astonishment.

He turned left and right, but he still could not get the characters out of his line of sight.

Thinking he was dreaming, Gustav closed his eyes, "I probably hit my head when I fell,"

After a few seconds, he opened his eyes back only to see more characters appear in his line of sight.

-[Idiot host, you have been chosen to wield great power!]

"Idiot host? Did these characters just insult me?" Gustav questioned, "Wait, host?" he asked in confusion.

-[You have ten seconds to decide if you accept this power or not.]

"Power? What power? What is happening? Why am I even replying to some weird characters? Am I dead? Is this retribution for committing suicide? Madness in the afterlife?" Gustav threw out a series of questions at a fast pace as he doubted his current existence and sanity.

As if it was answering his question, the characters changed again,

-[You may choose to decline this power, but that would spell death for you!]

Gustav held his chin after seeing these characters change again,

"So, I'm alive, but the price for that is this madness," he wondered out loud, "Wait, it just threatened to kill me?"



"Huh? it just started counting down," Gustav noticed the characters changing every second it counted down.


"Will I truly die if I don't give an answer or decline?" Gustav was a bit scared of facing death again after what happened the night before
