“Fuck this SHIT!!” Grey shouted in frustration
“Why does everything go downhill with me?”
“And where was that voice when I needed it most?!”
A WHILE AGO…
“Hmm so… according to this navigation device I’m in a Frozen wasteland ? Which is filled with monsters? Ain’t I fucked both ways?”
“Let’s get Outta here fast or I’m dead either way”
‘What’s this sound coming from?’
As I turned around all I see was a horrific sight
It was a snowy gray monster having blood on his wolf like fangs it seemed to be similar to a wolf yet it seemed like a snow leopard but it so big that it can be compared to a adult lion
That creature was feeding on a another dead body which had same white uniform as the previous guy
Suddenly the creature turned to him and Roared loudly announcing as I’m his prey and he’s a predator
I approached the snowy gray monster with caution, feeling a sense of unease emanating from the creature. Its wolf-like fangs were stained with blood, and despite its snow leopard-like appearance, it was massive – almost as big as an adult lion.
Drawing my Miaodao sword, I CLANG-ed it against the monster’s icy hide, preparing to strike, but the monster lunged forward, ROAR-ing ferociously, catching me off guard. I managed to dodge its attack, but barely, narrowly avoiding its razor-sharp claws as they SWIPE-d through the air.
As I regained my footing, my heart was THUMP-ing in my chest. Despite my abilities, I knew that I was facing a formidable opponent. I took a deep breath and activated my Umbrakinesis, blending into the darkness around me.
The monster charged again, and I swiftly sidestepped its attack, SLASH-ing at it with my sword. But the monster’s icy exterior seemed to deflect most of the blow, and I realized with growing unease that my sword wasn’t going to be enough.
I tried to use my <Psychokinesis> to throw the monster off balance, but it was too strong, too resistant. The monster ROAR-ed once more and swiped at me with its massive paws, knocking me back and causing me to stumble.
Gritting my teeth, I used my <Counter> ability to reflect some of the damage back at the creature, but it only seemed to make it angrier. It ROAR-ed again, and I felt a wave of fear wash over me.
Suddenly, I remembered my <Calm Mind> ability, and I focused on it with all my might, trying to push back the fear and the fatigue. Slowly, I began to feel more centered, more focused.
With renewed determination, I charged forward, using my Possession ability to inhabit the monster’s body. But even inside the creature’s mind, I found myself struggling against its fierce will. It fought back with all its strength, causing me to falter.
Just when it seemed like all was lost, I saw a glimmer of hope. A small weakness, a way in. I pushed forward with all my strength, leveraging my abilities to take control of the monster’s body and force it to collapse onto the ground.
Breathing heavily, I emerged from the monster’s body and stood over its defeated form. I had won, but just barely. As I limped away from the scene, I knew that I had been lucky this time. But I also knew that next time, I would need to be even stronger, even more focused.

As I coughed up blood from my mouth
And saw sight of that horrific beast which messed with my whole body
I was wrecked so much that I might have to take a rest for a few years…
As I thought of this…

[THE USER IS RECOVERING AT A SLOW PACE]
“I think that should do it”
Now I’ll sleep man I’m tired af
“Well let’s see if this bag has any food”
“Hm? Isn’t this some hard bread ?… And there’s water at least”
‘Damm I have to wet the bread with water before eating it’
‘well better than nothing’
As I sat huddled in a dark, frozen cave, my stomach rumbling with hunger, I reached for the hard, days-old bread sitting on a plate in front of me. The freezing cold had made it even harder than before, but I knew it was my only source of sustenance.
With a heavy sigh, I grabbed a nearby chunk of ice and began to melt it over the bread, watching as the water slowly seeped into the stale crust. As the ice melted, the sound of dripping echoed through the icy cave, mixing with the growling of my empty stomach.
Finally, after what felt like hours, I took my first bite. The bread was still hard and chewy, but the water had at least made it moist enough to eat. The sound of crunching and squishing filled the small cave, bouncing off the icy walls.
Despite the less-than-ideal meal, I continued to eat until every last crumb had been consumed. The sound of my teeth grinding against the tough bread mixed with the howling winds outside, reminding me of just how alone and isolated I truly was. But for now, at least my hunger had been temporarily sated.
“Phew that hits the spot~”
“At least i don’t have to sleep with a empty stomach, Now let’s just sleep”
With a full belly and a heavy heart, I nestled into the corner of the icy cave and closed my eyes. The sound of the wind outside had grown even louder, but it no longer bothered me as much.
As I tried to drift off to sleep, my mind couldn’t help but wander. What was I doing out here alone in this frozen wasteland? How long had it been since I’d seen another living soul?
But as my eyelids grew heavy and my breathing slowed, those thoughts disappeared. The only sound now was the soft rustling of my clothing against the rocky surface beneath me.
Before I knew it, I was fast asleep. The sound of my steady breathing and the peaceful silence of the cave enveloped me, making me feel almost safe despite the dangerous conditions outside.
For the first time in what felt like ages, I slept without any worries or fears weighing on my mind…
At least that’s what I thought
