The Immortal Player Book 2 Chapter 116
Seconds after he closed his eyes, He heard a beeping sound that resonated all through the room. For an unknown reason, he started to regain consciousness. His eyes opened and his vision gradually became clear.
He was laying in the bed with a ventilator attached to his face. But before he could grasp the situation, his attention was shifted to a familiar woman outside the room. She was on her seat and it seemed like she had fallen asleep.
"Mo--" He tried to speak. Unfortunately, his body wasn't strong enough to even speak. That said, he still tried to lift his hands, but he was only able to move a finger instead.
The woman, for some reason, woke up and shook her head; Trying to shake her tiredness. At that moment, she took a glance towards Pedro; seemingly concerned about his condition. It took her a few seconds before she finally realized that Pedro was awake.
"P-- Pedro!" She cried.
The female doctor, who was busy checking medical information on a computer, 'reactively' glanced towards her. In turn, his mother glanced towards the doctor; wanting to inform her about Pedro being awake.
"D-- Doctor! My son woke up!" She said as she stood and approached the wall of the room that was made of glass.
In response, the doctor ran towards her and peeked inside the room. Upon seeing Pedro's eyes open, she bowed slightly towards Pedro's mother and said, "Madam, Let me check on your son first. I would let you know if you can come inside."
"Please do! Please do!" His mother replied.
Without wasting another second, she entered a small room and wore an isolation gown, gloves, shoe cover, and mask. Then, she entered the room where Pedro was confined.
She checked a few data from the machines before asking a few things to Pedro. Fortunately, by the time she was asking Pedro, he had regained a bit more strength that was enough for him to move his head and nod slightly.
After a few minutes of checking Pedro, the doctor came out of the Intensive Care Unit, VIP Room, and said to Pedro's mother, "Madam, I am happy to inform you that the patient is doing well. If his condition gets better, he could be transferred to a normal ward in a few days."
"That's great to hear!" His mother said in relief as if the pain and worry in her heart suddenly disappeared.
Before she could shed a tear the doctor smiled at her and asked, "Do you want to go in, Madam? Although he cannot speak yet, he can nod in response at the least."
His mother simply nodded in response as she started to have teary eyes.
The doctor smiled in response. Then, she pointed towards the small room that they need to pass through in order to enter the ICU-VIP room.
"This way, Madam!" The doctor said.
After wearing isolation gowns, gloves, and such, his mother entered the ICU-VIP room and approached Pedro. She held one of his hands and caressed it gently while trying to hold her tears back as best as she could.
"Son, Mom's Here! Everything is going to be alright!" She said.
"Uhm--" Pedro forced out a weak cough in response.
His mother smiled in response. They spent a few more minutes before they were about to leave. Just when the doctor was about to leave the door after his mother, Pedro made a series of weak 'cries' in an attempt to call their attention.
However, this made the doctor panic instead. She rushed back and checked everything thinking that something wrong happened to Pedro.
In the end, she learned that Pedro just wanted to log in back in the game. Pedro thought that he would be bored staying awake because he wasn't even able to move yet. Unfortunately, the doctor said that she would only log in Pedro to the game after an hour or so.
Hopeless, Pedro could only agree in response. When they left, he simply closed his eyes and tried to take a nap. Soon, he falls into sleep.
Hours later, he woke up in the game; inside his room in Karakoa Ship. He stared at the ceiling and raised his hands. Then, he tightly closed his fist and thought, 'Don't worry, mom! I won't die easily!'.
~~~~Back to the Real World~~~~
Pedro's mom told the good news to his father and grandma. They rejoiced in happiness. Especially his grandma who strictly had a daily prayer routine for Pedro to wake up and safely recover. No matter how she sees Pedro as a 'failure' because of playing games, she still regarded him as her dear grandson.
After all, the reason why she was angry at Pedro for playing games was that she care for his future. She didn't want him to have a hard life in his future. Why would she bother scold Pedro and get angry if she didn't care for him? She'd just needlessly make her condition worst, especially that she was already old.
~~~~Back to the Game~~~~
Pedro remained at his bed, staring at the ceiling and doing nothing. Soon, his 'rest' was interrupted when someone knocked at his door.
"Faunia?" He asked.
"Yes. It's me, human!" She said, calmly. "Here are the bags that you told me to collect."
"Oh!" Pedro stood from his bed from excitement and said, "Wait a sec!"
The moment he opened the door, a strong smell of blood greeted him. Pedro frowned and covered his nose in response.
Faunia remained 'cold' and simply handed an inventory bag to Pedro. In turn, Pedro was confused as to why Faunia only gave him one inventory bag.
"You only got one?" He asked as he took the bag from Faunia. However, the moment he touched the bag, a notification popped out from his interface.
[Congratulations! You have obtained One Thousand Inventory Bags!]
x1 Spacial Inventory Skill (Gold-rated)
x1 Inventory Merger Skill (Silver-rated)]
[Congratulations! You have gained the title 'Inventory Bag Collector!'!]
"This--" Pedro stood like a statue whilst holding the bag. This made Faunia frown; curious of why Pedro stood in astonishment right after he took the bag.
"What's wrong, human?" She asked.
"I--It's Nothing!" He said, "Thanks for your hard work. We'll go to the Naga Kingdom later. Make sure to clean yourself. We might not get permitted to enter if you stink that much."
"Whatever!" Faunia said. Then, she flicked her tongue and murmured as she left Pedro, "I can just eliminate them without anyone noticing."
Pedro chose not to scold Faunia despite hearing her complain to herself. When she was gone, Pedro could only shake his head and return back to his room.
"Eliminating them was not a bad idea. But... I am Madame Soledad's apprentice! Not only that I have the 'inherited' obligation to protect humans, but also to lead them and eliminate the monsters! Besides... Even in the game of chess, there were pieces called pawns." He chuckled.
~~~~NOTICE (Author's Announcement)~~~~
Hi Everyone, Author Here! Recently, I spotted my novel being posted on other sites without my permission. I just want to inform everyone that the Original Author of this novel is 'RDream' and I would like to encourage everyone to read at
I decided to make this notice because, in the first place, I am writing this novel as my hobby and I even opted it to be accessed for free until this arc. On top of that, I would like to share with everyone that I always give my best whenever I write something. It takes me four, up to eight hours to write just a single chapter.
That said, I would greatly appreciate it if these sites would, AT LEAST, update my pen name which was 'RDream'. I know that the spread of the copy on other sites won't be avoided. But... Please do ensure that the name of the Author was correct or updated because we spend time, effort, and many more just to make these stories.
It would be painful for any author to see different names as names to their work, even if it was his/her former pen name. I think that as a sign of respect, at the BARE MINIMUM, the name of the author must be updated or correct.
Thanks for your understanding! If you are a reader and like my story, please do read my story in . It is where I write my novels and where I get to interact with my readers, into which was one of my greatest motivations in writing novels.
