Chapter 36 - Achieving Independence

After Gustav picked an apartment, the agent, Mr. Kalu, took Gustav to where it was located.

It was only a few blocks away.

This was the edge of the city so Gustav could see the outline of a sparse forest behind this residential area with a well-structured road in the middle that led to the city borders.

They arrived in front of a seven-story building situated in the middle of the third street.

It was yellow and brown in color. It was well structured and didn't seem too fancy neither did it look poor.

Although this area was very far from Echelon Academy, transportation made the long distance seem useless. Gustav would be able to get to school within five minutes after walking to the hover bus station.

Mr. Kalu took Gustav to the third apartment on the last floor.

Each floor had about seven apartments but thelast floor had only four. This was because there was a big balcony up there that covered one-third of space.

The apartment Gustav was about to rent was just beside the door that led to the balcony.

The agent took him into the apartment and showed him how every room looked.

The apartment had two rooms, with a kitchen and a living room that was big enough to fit up to fifty people.

It was really well-spaced. Gustav walked from room to room inspecting everywhere with a satisfied expression.

Even though there was one extra room than he expected he still wanted to go ahead and rent the place after finding out the price.

"Fifty thousand rad?" Gustav asked Mr. Kalu.

"Yes, Mr. Gustav... is something wrong? We can bargain for it if you feel it's too expensive," Mr. Kalu proposed.

'Oh, so the price can still go lower than this?' Gustav was pleasantly surprised as he had been expecting it to be expensive than this.

"Well how about I pay forty thousand," Gustav decided to try out his luck. "Ah, Mr. Gustav forty is a bit lower than the bargain range, can we get it up to forty-five thousand?" Mr.Kalu asked with a wry smile hung on his face.

Gustav still wanted to bargain a little bit more but he remembered that Mr. Kalu had been nice to him since the start and also at this time he had enough money to spare so he decided not to drag it any further.

"Alright, then forty-five thousand it is," Gustav agreed with a smile.

The transaction was done in cash since Gustav didn't have a bank account.

Mr. Kalu was shocked that at Gustav's age he didn't have a bank account but he was lenient enough to accept the payment in cash.

This made Gustav add another activity to his to-do list, Opening a bank account.

Documents were signed and they still had to visit a government agency around that area for proper documentation and access before everything was done.

Around five pm they were done with the process and Gustav was given the key to the apartment.

Mr. Kalu left after a brief talk with Gustav about some other rules of staying in the vicinity.

Gustav stood in the empty apartment with a smile on his face.

"Now I can finally ha..." Before he could complete his words a notification popped up in his line of sight.

[Host has completed the goal: Achieve total independence]

"Hmm? Another goal achieved and this time it says total independence?" Gustav stared at the notification with a surprised look.

"Looks like renting an apartment was the last criteria for achieving this goal," Gustav held his chin in contemplation.


[Goal rewards]

<New skill unlocked: Silent advancement>

<5000 exp>


Gustav stared at the rewards with a contemplative expression.

"Silent advancement... sounds like a movement related skill," Gustav had a slightly disappointed look because he already had dash and sprint, he was expecting something that didn't have to do with movement.

"I'll need to test this later," Gustav muttered and proceeded to open host attributes on the system interface.

Gustav nodded after seeing his exp increase, "Around four thousand more to go," He muttered softly.

"The rate at which I'm getting exp is really slow... apart from the daily tasks that give me up to fifty, the weekly and monthly quests I completed, and the goals, there should be another way to get more exp," Gustav pondered. He remembered when he was making more research about earth's old days' video games, monsters would have to be killed to get exp but this wasn't a game, this was real life and he had no idea where he would come across monsters that he could defeat to gain exp.

He looked at his level again, "Only moving up three levels in two months is not a good pace... My stats are pretty much progressing well but my increase in levels not so much... I'm like what those old gamers would call a noob, I need to find a way to farm more exp if not it will take a long time for me to unlock shop function, and that class thingy... I'm sure that also has to do with levels,"

Gustav closed the system interface after a long contemplation on solutions.

He stared at the empty apartment.

"Time to go shopping for home materials," Gustav smiled and headed out.

He was still new to this area so when he got outside the building he had to ask around
