The Immortal Player Book 2 Chapter 119
Thousands of players crowd outside the gates of the Naga Kingdom. Those who were in front are the ones asking the guards to let them in the Kingdom.
Unfortunately, the guards remained unmoved and they remained on guard against them. Angered by the guards' silence, a bald man took out his beginner sword and shouted, "Everyone! If they won't let us through... Then... Let's fight our way in! We are thousands, they're just around a hundred!"
In response, the other players took out their beginner's sword, raised it in the air, and shouted, "Yeah!"
The bald man smirked as he glanced back to the guard, "I wonder if this would make you speak?"
The guard frowned. Not because of the bald man but because he felt an intense aura that made him froze in place. It was the same for the other guards.
On the contrary, since the players only knew a little about the game, including the suppressive feeling caused by the aura of unfathomable beings, they only thought that they 'somehow' got exhausted for some reason.
Before they could do anything, even charge to the guards and force their way into the Kingdom, two men came out from the forest and attracted their attention.
"Hahahaha! What's this Old D?" Fate asked, "Were they the irregular humans that Elder sister Life was referring to?"
"It seems like it." Old D said, "Life can't see through their origin, but... I can see their deaths!"
"Hahaha! Are you saying that Elder sister Life would not know if--" Before Fate could continue, Old D interrupted him.
"Why do you always need to keep asking me questions that you already knew the answer." Old D frowned, "Just don't run to me when Destiny goes after you!"
"Ai~Ai! Old D, don't be like that! Hahaha!" Fate said, "I'll be nice! I'll be nice! Hahaha!"
Old D ignored Fate and simply walked forward. Unfortunately, the crowd has blocked their way towards the gate. Hence, Old D asked the players to make way.
"Young ones... Could you let this Old man pass through?" He asked.
The players frowned as they looked towards the 'blind' looking old man. However, the players didn't show even a hint of pity. Some of them even scolded him.
"Old man! We've been waiting here since last night! Fall in line will you!"
"Yeah! Yeah! Don't think that because you're old and blind--we would let you through!"
Old D's forehead knitted. He stood in place and didn't speak another word.
In turn, his silence made Fate smirk. He patted his back and said, "Old man! Old man! Let me handle this! These irregulars needed to know their place! Hahaha!"
Fate's always smiling face changed and became cold. With a hoarse voice, he laughed, "Ho--Ho--Ho--Ho! Let's see what your fates would be!"
He rolled his dice that is as big as the Rubik's cube.
Tak! Tak! Tak!
It bounced a few times in the ground before it stopped at "six". This made Fate burst into laughter.
"HAHAHAHA!" He laughed. Then, in the next second, his face becomes serious, and said, "Six, huh? That's really unfortunate... All of ya fates are sealed! HAHAHAHA!"
After a cold wind went pass through them, their hearts burst in its next beat. All of them shouted because of intense pain. Then, in the next seconds, their bodies fell into the ground, lifeless.
The Naga Kingdom guards could only stand in fear, frozen. Their hearts beating anxiously; wishing that the cold wind would keep blowing towards them.
To break the eerie silence, Fate burst into laughter and said, "Hahaha! Who would have thought that these rude irregulars would be unlucky!"
Then, he glanced towards Old D and asked, "Hahaha! Old D, How many did you harvest? Can I get a simple thanks from ya? Hahahaha!"
"Young man... I only saw their end! But... For some reason... I was not able to harvest a single soul!" Old D said, annoyed.
"Hahahaha! It seems like you have the same case with Elder sister Life. Hahahaha!" Fate mocked.
"Whatever!" Old D surrendered.
"Hahahaha! Old D, come on! Don't be like that!" Fate chuckled as he picked up his dice and followed behind Old D.
Fate kept talking but Old D ignored him in response as they went inside the Kingdom. The guards remained frozen in fear as the two went in 'casually' towards the Kingdom. Only when the figure of the two vanished amongst the busy crowd of the Kingdom's people did they got back to their senses.
The guards didn't dare to speak a word and simply remained on their post, as if waiting for their shift to end as fast as it could. Of course, the reason was that if they even tried to speak a single word about the two men, they fear that they might die like how the thousands of players did.
At this moment, the ground outside the Naga Kingdom's gates started to get flooded with blood, turning the dry soil into bloody mud.
However, despite the stench of blood that gets stronger each second, the attention of the Kingdom's guards is shifted towards the howls of wolves from the far end of the forest.
"Not good!" The guard standing at the gate forced out a smile. Then, he shouted with a trembling voice, "R--Ring the bells! Ring the bells! A--A Monster Wave is coming!"
The guard at the bell tower ran as fast as he can, even occasionally stumbling along the way. When he reached the bell, he didn't think twice and rang it thrice in every interval.
Dung! Dung! Dung!
Dung! Dung! Dung!
Dung! Dung! Dung!
The people from the Naga Kingdom stared at the bell tower for the first few seconds. Then, after recognizing the meaning of the signal, their face went pale and everyone started running all over the place, seemingly heading back to their homes as fast as they can.
Shops get closed and Full Armored NPCs rushed towards the Kingdom's gates.
Despite the panic, Old D and Fate remained calm as they walk at the main street.
"Hahahaha! Old D, why are the humans in panic?" He asked in a mocking tone. "Hahahaha! What are they afraid of?"
"Young Fate! They don't see what I could see nor what you could see! What do you expect?" Old D scolded.
"Hahahaha! I didn't think that the human would be this interesting!" He smirked, "Especially your candidate, Old D."
"Is that so?" Old D asked, coldly, "Control yourself this time around!"
"Hahahaha! Old D, it's you who needs to do so! Hahahaha!" Fate retorted.
