The Immortal Player Book 2 Chapter 115
Three [Wild Mountain Boar] charges towards him. At the same time, there were four [Sand Skinned Viper] that launched towards him. Out of concern, Sabrina wasn't able to hold her self to shout at him.
However, Pedro simply responded with a smirk. At this moment, He suddenly stopped charging and established a 'striking' stance with his left foot in front. Then, He pulled the scabbard of his [Faithpursuer] Katana 'slightly' backward with his right hand, whilst 'slightly' twisting his body to the right.
Afterward, he pulled the Katana out of its scabbard and swung it with full force. His strike made a beautiful golden arc that, somehow, split the three [Wild Mountain Boar] into half horizontally.
Despite the 'awesome' feeling, he didn't lose his composure. He swung the Katana back to the right, thus making another golden arc and slicing three [Sand Skinned Viper] into half.
The pen-knife pierced through the last [Sand Skinned Viper] as he placed the scabbard of his [Faithpursuer] Katana on his inventory bag. Thus, enabling him to grip its handle with his two hands; his left hand on the top half of the handle, whilst his right hand was on the bottom half.
"Come!" He shouted as another batch of [Wild Mountain Boar] charges towards him. A smirk was glued in his face, whilst his body emanated a strong murderous aura, enough to make Mathew take a step back and grip his sword tightly.
"This~" Mathew uttered whilst forcing out a smile.
Everyone could only watch Pedro eliminate the monsters one by one. It was not because Pedro, alone, was enough to deal with the monsters but because his swordsmanship paired with the golden arc that his Katana made was so beautiful to watch.
Soon, After eliminating the last monster in their vicinity, Pedro sheathed back his Katana. Then, instead of placing it back to his inventory bag, he attached the scabbard at his right waist. Ready for him to use any second.
While resting, he checked his progress on the event and learned that his kill count was 24. Compared to the top players in the event ranking, there was still a huge difference between his kill count and their kill count. However, Narrowing the 200 Kills gap between him and the top event ranking players would be an easy job. If... If there would be enough monsters for him to kill.
After checking his progress on the event, he checked the information about the [Wild Mountain Boar] and the [Sand Skinned Viper].

"It won't 'sting'!"
He rubbed his chin after reading the information about the monsters. Then, he mumbled, "Wild Mountain Boars, huh? I wonder what monster is scarier than the Mountain Wolves that was enough to scare these boars to the shores."
He stares towards the mountain for a few seconds before shifting his attention back to his 'team'. He sighed and asked himself, "Now... How can they safely level up?"
Other than the whistle of the wind and the splash of the water, the shore was filled with an awkward silence as Pedro thinks of a way to help his 'group mates' to level up safely. They, in return, glanced at him with both amazement and fear; just waiting for Pedro to give them a command.
Truth be told, Farming monsters would only be easy with Faunia's presence. With her being busy clearing the area from other players, Pedro needed to do her role since he was the highest leveled player amongst them.
Mathew and Talia would have no trouble farming by themselves because they were already level 10. They could also equip the sword that Pedro gave them. However, they were not strong enough to 'assist' or carry everyone else, even if they were just against bronze-rated monsters.
"It would take a lot of time if I would assist them one by one." Pedro pondered to himself, "But I guess... I have no other choice for now."
Hopeless, Pedro decided to take the role of a tank whilst allowing Talia and Mathew to reduce the monsters' HP. As for his 'groupmates', they would also help reduce the HP of the monsters. Eventually, one from them would be able to deal with the last hit to the monster.
That said, one of them would hold the 'exp' amulet to speed up their leveling. He planned to prioritize Sabrina and Aldo who were the most agile and better in combat compared to everyone else. The more hitters or damage dealers, the faster they could farm monsters, the more they could kill monsters.
He approached everyone and explained his plan to them. He 'initially' planned to let them farm on their own; thinking that Faunia could help them in case they would be in a dire situation. However, Pedro wasn't as fast as Faunia. At least, not in his current normal state.
He can only opt for the safer method. It would be 'slow' but... He could ensure everyone's safety.
As for the 'exp' amulet, he handed it to Sabrina. It was not because she was a Demonic Eyes User too. He chose her because of her 'combat prowess' that she showed when they 'gave' her the Demonic Eyes. The way she was able to devise a way to escape Faunia's control at that time was even craftier and better than what Pedro could have done if he didn't have the experience and knowledge that he got in his past life.
Since then, Pedro had high expectations towards her to the point that he assumed that she could even match Mathew in a one versus one battle.
It was not that he was underestimating the abilities of his other 'groupmates'. It was just that he wasn't still able to see their potentials or strengths. As for Aldo, he had a rough guess on his potential since they were friends. However, he still needs to confirm his 'guess' by conducting a few tests.
They farmed monsters non-stop, even in the night. By the time that the BoF started to rise, Sabrina had already reached level 5. Aldo has reached level 3, while the rest of the group has reached level 2.
Since Sabrina and the rest needed to log out of the game, they decided to return to the sh.i.p.s to 'sleep'. Through telepathy, he also asked Faunia to return and have some rest. With that, their first day of 'farming' has ended.
Instead of crafting skills, Pedro was somehow exhausted to the point that he ended up sleeping in his own room.
"Ah~ This feeling! How comfortable! Did I really exhaust myself too much today?" He said as his vision slowly faded.
