When he woke up, he found himself in a peculiar and unfamiliar place. His head was ringing with a terrible headache, eyes blurry, guts paining from starvation, and throat dried from terrible thirst.
With a struggle, he opened his mouth.
”Whe… Where am I? ”
He struggled to lift his head, but he lacked the energy to even move a finger. It was a miracle that his lips managed to move.
His eyes couldn see clearly, but he could perceive four silhouettes moving around his helpless body, and their voices vibrated in his ears, but he couldn hear a single word of what they were saying.
Suddenly, he felt the rush of energy infiltrating his body explosively, and his vitality surged while his senses recovers.
His eyes miraculously became clear, and his ears could hear clearly as if he just came underwater.
Hunger, thirst, nausea, exhaustion, and horrible aches suddenly disappeared as he feels his refreshed body filled with vigour and vitality. He felt like a new person and his body began to move as he looks at four boys surrounding his lying body.
”You finally woke up. ” One of the boys spoke in a friendly tone.
His bulging eyes quickly moved around to look at four young boys with shock.
They all look identical!
Same clothing, the same height, the same skin colour, and similar facial expressions. They gave him a weird feeling in his heart because their presence felt unnatural.
”Who… Who are you? Where am I? ”
His voice was trembling with fear.
The four young boys looked at each other with a surprised look on their faces, like they were expecting him to be aware of the location he was at.
One of the boys glared at him with a satisfied look.
”His vitality and soul energy are restored to a normal level. ”
”You do not know where you are? ”
Another boy spoke as his brows furrowed, ”Did he just forget us this quick? Did he lose his memory? Oh no! Did our process fail and mess with his brain? ”
”Nonsense! How can we make a mistake? But… But, theres something wrong with his soul. His soul feels entirely different. ” Another boy spoke.
The young man who was lying on the ground sat and listened. He looked at the four boys, and he became even more confused as fear filled his heart when he listened to their conversation.
They are young boys younger than him. They look fifteen years younger than he is, and he is twenty-five.
These ten years looking boys gave him unusual and threatening feelings even though they appear to be friendly and young.
They are talking about him but he doesn understand what they are talking about.
”We tempered his body and the bestow of our bloodline was successful. But his soul and memories are of an entirely different person. Maybe we messed up with the process because this is our first time imparting a human with our inheritance and bloodline. ”
”How can we make a mistake? Only humans make mistakes. The ceremony of bestowing our legacy was successful, but this human is an entirely different person in the same body. Maybe indeed we messed up with the process somehow. ”
The young man who sat on the ground after recovering and gaining vitality looked at his hands and his body to confirm something, and he realised that he is in his own original body, but listening to the conversation of four identical young boys, they seem to believe that he is in the body of another person.
He is being avoided and no one is telling him what is going on, where he is, and how he came to be in this scary cave.
”Who are you, young boys? And what are you talking about? ” The young man asked.
”Young boys??? ”
”Hahahaha! Ha… Hah hah… Hahaha! ” The four young boys laughed in unison.
”You must be out of your mind to call this God a young boy… ”
”Hahaha! Just let him be, he genuinely doesn know who we are. ” Another young boy interrupted.
”Young man, who are you? ”
”Me? I am Teboho Thema. ”
”Earlier you said your name was Philip Mod. Are you sure you are not Philip Mod? ”
”Philip Mod? No! That is not my name, and this is our first conversation. ”
”I see what is going on here. Where are you from, human? ” Another young boy asked.
”Cape town, South Africa. ”
”Do we know where that place is? ” Another young boy asked the other three.
”Nope. We have never heard of such a place in this world. ”
”Is he a reincarnation from another world? ” the young boys looked at each other with concern.
”I just read his memories. He is entirely a different person, and he had the same appearance even in another world. Hmm… The world he is from doesn have magic or special bloodlines. What? They live an entirely different life from this world, and their technology is completely different and advanced. ” One of the young boys said with awe on his face.
”We can see it. Impressive. ”
”So you are Teboho Thema from another world? ”
”Yes! I am Teboho Thema, but I do not know how I came to be at this place and why I felt terrible pains in my body a moment ago. ” Teboho Thema replied.
”Am I really in another world? ”
”It seems so. We just tempered this body of yours and bestowed you the last remnant of our bloodline. It seems during the process, the soul and memories belonging to this body faded and were replaced by your own. ” One of the young boys explained.
”Strange… Something like this is possible? Then what happened to my real body in another? ”
”If your souls didn exchange with Philip Mod, you have already died in your previous world. ”
The young man quickly stood from the ground with shock written all over his face.
”Even we don have the full understanding of what happened. It seems like there was an error in our process. ”
”You seem to be overwhelmed by my statement, but theres good news. You don have to worry anymore. You are now alive and well, and you will live longer than you lived in your previous life. Where you lived you had a life expectancy of eighty, but now you can live twice that number, and if you manage to awaken your new bloodline to the last stage, you can even live forever. ”
The young man listened and his expression changed again from shock to surprise.
”Live forever? ”
”Yes! You can live forever. Right now you have a life expectancy of one hundred and ninety, but if you can become successful by awakening the bloodline that we bestowed to you to the last stage, then you will live forever if you don end your life of course. Your bloodline is divided into seven stages. Each stage has its powers and a longer life expectancy. Your bloodline is not yet awakened to stage one yet. ”
”Congratulations on passing our trial by being the first human to reach the cave of the Southern Mountain God. Well… even though the achievements belong to the previous owner of your body… it is now your own body and our legacy is now your inheritance. ”
”Southern Mountain God? ” Teboho Thema asked.
”Yes, the four of us are named Southern Mountain God, and this cave is at the mountain that belongs to us. This mountain is also named after us, so no human ever managed to reach this place for the past hundred thousand years. You and Philip Mod are the first humans to be in our presence in a hundred thousand years. ”
”I received your legacy? So, What do I do with it? ” Teboho asked the four boys who are named the Southern Mountain God.
”You can do whatever you want with it. As long as you do not shame our divine name. Take this. ”
A golden shiny box appeared before one of the young boys and it flew towards Teboho Thema.
Teboho Thema stretched his hand to catch it, but the box became ethereal and passed his hand and shoot towards his glabella and disappeared.
”What was that? I was unable to touch it. ” Teboho Thema said with bewilderment.
”It was our last gift to you. ” The young boy who summoned the golden box and make it disappear onto Teboho Themas glabella replied with a smile.
”What is on the inside? ”
”Its a surprise, you will be able to open it when you can awaken your bloodline to the third stage. ” Another young boy replied.
”I see. How do I awaken my bloodline? ” Teboho Thema asked.
”Our time to ascend has come, human. We no longer have time to talk. We passed down our legacy and we no longer have any ties with this world. Farewell, human. ”
”At least tell me where I should go. I don have any idea where I am, and who Philip Mod is. You can leave me here alone. ”
”Human. We tempered your body, gave you our bloodline, and left you with a gift, but you still want us to accompany you and guide you? You are free to go wherever you want. Do not bother this God any longer. ”
”But since I understand your situation that you come from another world, and you don know where you are, Ill do one last thing for you. After we ascend, I will teleport a random human from the closest kingdom to this place. What you do after that is up to you. You can follow the human or do whatever you want. ”
A bright golden light surrounded the four young boys and they became ethereal as they faded away, and they disappeared forever from this planet.
”Ah? Did they leave me just like that? They didn even teach me anything about the things they left in this new body of mine. I only know that I am in the mountain of Southern Mountain God, other than that, I know nothing about this world. ”
While Teboho Thema was still confused about what to do, a golden light appeared on the cave floor.
A golden silhouette figure of a human appeared in the centre of the golden light.
Teboho Thema was startled and he unconsciously took two steps to move far away from the light.
Teboho Thema said in his heart, ”So they did send someone? Great! They didn go back against their promise. ”
The golden light disappeared and a beautiful figure of a young woman who looks like a goddess who just came out of a painting stood there with a confused expression.
She is a peerless beauty that Teboho has never seen before. He used to think those models and actresses he saw on TV were beautiful, but compared to the goddess standing before him now, they all paled in comparison.
She dressed like a princess from a fantasy world, and the ornaments on her body screamed royalty.
How can anybody be this beautiful?
Teboho Thema was lost in his thoughts while his jaw dropped to the ground with disbelief, ”How can a human be this beautiful? Did they send a goddess by mistake? ”
The young beautiful female who appears to be sixteen years old quickly regained her composure after realising that she is in a cave, and there is a young man in her presence.
Her eyes became cold, and her beautiful face radiated with extreme beauty as she gives the man before her a furious gaze.
”Who are you peasant? What did you do? Why am I here? ” The beautiful girl said as she emitted an aura that is too terrifying for Teboho Thema.
”I am Tebo… No, I am Philip Mod… ”
As Teboho Thema was talking he was interrupted by an angry shout.
”You lowly commoner! Do you dare to talk with this princess while you are not on your knees? You are courting death! ”
A force of pressure overwhelmed Tebo… No, it overwhelmed Philip Mod and tried to force him onto his knees, but Philip tried with all his might and he resisted the pressure.
He was first shocked at how can such a beautiful girl release a powerful force from her body to force him to kneel, but he was even more shocked at how strong his body is to be able to resist such a force.
Since when did he become this strong? Was it the strength left by the previous soul or it has everything to do with the tampering of body and the bloodline given to him by the four boys calling themselves Southern Mountain God?
Even he doesn know why he feels so strong. He doesn have the memories of the previous soul, and he only has the memories of his previous life.
”Kneel? Courting death? Hey Miss! How can you say such terrible things to a stranger you just met? Why should I kneel? On top of that, I am not the one who brought you here… ”
”Fire Ball! ”
While Philip Mod was still talking, the peerless beauty shouted, and a red hot fireball the size of a football appeared on her hand, and Philip Mod could feel its hotness from a distance.
She mercilessly threw the fireball towards Philip Mod with her might without any hesitation with an intent to turn him into ashes.
Philip Mod sensed the danger that threatens his life from the quickly incoming fireball and he jumped and smashed to the side wall with breakneck speed as the fireball miss him and blast to the stone far away from him.
In his previous life, he didn experience such senses, and he didn have the level of reflexes he just displayed now.
In just a second, he avoided death.
The fireball exploded violently like a bomb, and that scared Philip Mod to death.
The entire cave trembled and shook from the effect of exploding fireball.
”A trash at level one of fledgling soul energy can avoid my attack? How is that even possible? Why don you just drop and die worm? Stop resisting and deliver yourself to death! ”
Philip Mod was scared and pissed at the same time and he didn know what to do. Though he played video games, he didn know how to fight in the real life of his previous life. He doesn have magic or fighting skills right now because those four young boys taught him nothing.
Philip asked in his heart, ”How can I survive this violent confrontation? ”
”Lady! Stop being unreasonable. Why are you attacking me? I don even know how to use magic and defend myself… ”
While Philip Mod was still talking, the peerless beauty charged forward like a lightning and she left after images as her speed becomes fast.
Surprisingly Philip Mod could still see her regardless of her speed, but he couldn move as fast as her even if he tried with everything in his body.
The peerless beautys hand moved back in anticipation of to strike, and Philip Mod felt his body getting cold as he smells death.
Her fingernails thickened and stretched like small daggers as her hand approaches Philip Mods throat.
”Die! worm! ”
The lady shouted with fury as she strikes the throat.
Philip Mod screamed as he tried with all his might to dodge.
Philip Mod managed to move aside a little, but the nails missed as they managed to cut the side of her neck.
Blood shot out like a water sprinkler as the lady passed and jump far away to avoid dirtying herself with blood.
Masaka felt like his new life is finally over before he can even live it. He doesn have twenty minutes of being in this world, but he was already being attacked to death.
As he covers the side of his neck with his hand, he felt soothing warm energy and blood suddenly stop as the wound miraculously closed with visible speed.
In four breaths time, the wound was already closed, and the peerless beauty stood there and watch with shock.
”Who is this person? Trash at level one of fledgling soul energy can dodge my speed, and his wound recovers like hell. Who are you scoundrel? ”
”Lady, I am not your enemy! Please leave me alone. I am not the one who brought you here. ”
”You are the only worm I could see in this cave. How do you explain all of this? I give you ten breath time to explain. After that, you are a dead paste of meat if I am not convinced. You should also explain why you can recover instantly. ”
Philip Mod was stressed out and because of fear, words couldn come out of his mouth any longer.
Philip Mod thought to himself, ”If I had the memories of the real Philip Mod, I should at least know what to do in this situation. Right now I can even defend myself, this is infuriating. This lady is a psychopath. Today I am dead meat for sure. ”
As Philip Mod was in despair, he suddenly heard a voice of a woman in his head.
”Master! You have five empty slots available right now, and you can create skills, spells and combat techniques to defend yourself. ”
As Philip was about to ask who is talking, he saw a figure of a beautiful mature woman dressed in white in his mind.
”Master! This is your servant as you can see. I am part of your bloodline. I will help you with everything you need. ”
Philip spoke in his mind, ”Quickly, how do I use magic? ”
”Master can create spells and fill the empty slots before you can cast the spells using your soul energy. With your bloodline, you can create any skill or spell you desire. Just tell me what kind of spell or skill you need and I will create it immediately. ”
”Quick! Create a fireball spell for me and fill one of the slots! ”
”Master! A fireball spell has already been created, and with the rule of equal exchange, the fireball will consume your souls energy to cast. To cast a fireball, just imagine it and call it. Master still has four empty slots remaining. ”
”Thank you. Why didn you notice me earlier? I nearly died you know, and you just kept quiet. ”
”I was waiting for Master to command me, but I realized later that Master doesn notice my existence. I have some advice for Master, can a servant dare to advise Master? ”
”Master! Your opponent is much stronger than Master with leaps and bounds. With your current level as a level one fledgling soul energy practitioner, your fireball will not even leave a scratch on a level eight substantial soul energy practitioner like her. ”
”Damn. So what should I do? ”
”I have good news master! Your soul power and soul energy are higher than the Masters opponent. I advise Master to create a soul spell that will subdue her into submission. Master will have a pawn and new servant to protect Master. ”
”Something like that can be done? What is an equal exchange when is used? It sounds too good to be true. ”
”The spell will cost Master ten years of life span. Since Master has one hundred and ninety years of life expectancy, ten years will not affect Masters vitality that much. Subduing her, Master will remain with one hundred and eighty life expectancy. ”
Philip Mod, ”… ”
The peerless beauty was enraged because he gave him enough time to explain himself but he is still spacing out.
”Worm, your time is running out. I gave you enough time to explain yourself. Don blame me for being merciless in the next four breaths. ”
”Master! Is my advice not good? ”
”I think it is good advice. I can defeat her. Trading ten years of my life is nothing compared to dying now. Do it, create the spell. ”
”Master! What should I call the spell? ”
”Deliver Unto Master! ”
”The spell Deliver Unto Master has been created. With the rule of equal exchange, the spell will cost Master ten years of his life span to cast. The effect of the spell will cause the targets soul to be bounded by the Master, so the target will never mess with the Master or disobey even if she wants to. Master still has three empty slots remaining. ”
”Forget about those empty slots for now. Now lets focus on the fight. ”
”Yes! Master! ”
”You keep calling me a worm. You think highly of yourself little girl. If you can come before this Daddy and bow down three times calling me Daddy. I will consider forgiving you for your earlier attempts to kill me. ”
”What… Did… You… Say? ” The peerless beautys eyes turned red as she fumes with rage.
As the royal princess, she has never been disrespected like this before.
She looked at Philip Mod with fury and her killing intent shot to the roof. Her body emitted a violent aura that infixes Philip Mods heart and fills it with nothing but terror.
As Philip sensed danger and her killing intent surging like hell, he didn waste any time and called out his new spell.
”Deliver Unto Master! ”
A dark purple light with black smoke emitted from Philips body and instantly charged towards the peerless beauty.
When the peerless beauty saw the dark purple light charging, her heart nearly stopped because the speed of the charging spell was faster than hers. She felt an ominous and frightening aura coming out from the spell and she turned away to run.
Fear spread on her beautiful face, and as she was about to run, she felt her heart being pierced by terrible dark energy, and she fell to her knees unable to run any further.
”Bloodline girl, the spell hit her. Did it work? ”
”Ah! Master, why are you calling me bloodline girl? Can you give me a better name? Master! I have good news, the girl is now Masters servant. She can not do anything that will harm or betray Master even if she wants to. ”
”Good. Bloodline girl, I don know your name. What can I call you? ”
”Master, I have no name. I was born from your bloodline today to be your servant. This servant begs Master to bestow a name upon her. ”
”Your name is Rosa. How about that? ”
”Wow! I love it, Master. I will cherish this name with my every being. ”
”Now let me talk with my new servant to see if the spell worked. ”
Philip approached the girl on her knees with caution, she just fell on her knees and didn try to stand again and run, but Philip approached from behind.
”Worm! What have you done to me? ”
Philip Mod, ”… ”
The girl stood and still gave Philip a cold gaze.
”What is your name? ” Philip asked with caution.
”You want to know my name now? Huh? Then, behold peasant. This Princess is known as Princess Violet Beta from the prestigious kingdom of Beta. I am the second daughter of king Dingo Beta and the fifth child. I have three big brothers and one big sister. Are you satisfied? ”
Philip Mod, ”… ”
Princess Violet Beta ”Humph! ”
