“Ahh…. Okay I’m done this is just stupid. Why am I still falling? Does this lead to the other side of the planet or something?”
As Hydra kept falling and falling he was starting to wonder if the poison would kill him first, instead of actually falling to his death. He had even lost interest in screaming cause he throat hurt so much from screaming for so long.
It was definitely a surprise to him to have fallen for so long and still not be able to see anything. As he was just thinking whether or not this drop was endless he finally saw light at the bottom of the pit. As he was enveloped with new light he came upon a giant open underground lake. This lake was large enough to be called a small ocean. As he stared at the endless black waters, he noticed on the side that wasn’t endless was a giant cave. This cave could probably fit the largest mythical beast in existence, and although Hydra did not know what the largest beast was, he was sure that this cave was gigantic.
He was unable to see inside the cave as it was pitch black and to be honest it wasn’t his major concern at the moment, because he noticed he was finally closing in on the giant lake. However as he didn’t particularly want to stare at death he chose to look around the surroundings and just before the giant cave he noticed ancient open gateway to the cave.
He had no idea what this gate represented, but just looking at it Hydra was able to see that it was similar to the markings from the underground temple. Before he could finally see the markings on the gate where he met with the surface of the water. Without even feeling a shred of numbness a message popped up.

Landon held his head tiredly. He had been playing for an entire two days in the game without any rest. In fact he needed to go to the washroom so badly he stumbled over his own feet that he even forgot how to use properly.
After finishing all the important things, Landon prepared a nice dinner for himself. It wasn’t like he could play the game anyways and because he was practically starved after not eating so long he cooked a nice curry and rice to fill him up and have left overs later. With the last bite finished Landon felt he wanted to do stretch out a bit.
“Let’s go see the Old man!”
“Azla. You can’t do it like that! You’ll spill everything!”
“Ah don’t be such a nag Lis….!”
As Azla was complaining about being nagged she suddenly bumped into the side of a chair and dropped everything with a crash. Juice was spilt everywhere and the freshly cooked meals for customers went flying. The customers didn’t see to mind and even started to laugh teasingly at Azla’s sorry state.
She was covered in sauced noodles and sticky rice. It stained her apron and even got caught into her hair and suddenly regretting not listening to her sister’s nags she started to puff out her cheeks. For a young girl being in such a state was definitely not something to be happy about. Just then after hearing a crashing noise, Michael upon seeing Azla’s state shook his head and called out to her.
“Azla go upstairs and take a shower. It’s the first left in the hallway.”
“Ah…. Sorry about the mess boss.”
“No worries just get yourself cleaned up.”
Just as he said this a ringing sound was heard and the entrance opened.
“Old man I came over to use the dojo for a bit, can I?”
The two girls after hearing their favorite person’s voice rushed over to his side. Yes, even Azla who was covered in sauce, seemingly forgot about her appearance and rushed over. Now the just entered Landon, noticed Azla’s state and before he even had a chance to think about what had happened he reacted immediately. The rushing Azla tried to plow into Landon with a small leap. As she did Landon mustered his reflexes to the utmost limit and dodged to the side. But who was Azla? She was a sporty girl who had a brother mind reading device and before Landon could rebalance himself, Azla had already plowed into Landon knocking him straight into the floor.
At this sight Lisa and Michael both of shook their heads. Even Lisa was too tired to scold Azla after this. After all Lisa herself was too happy to see her elder brother. They had been grounded for the last few days and were only able to see him for a short time period. It must be known that for a poor orphanage buying games or expensive toys, books or other things was quite difficult. Thus the only option was to play with one another and their brother was naturally the person Lisa and Azla had the most fun with.
Although they were busy working their brother meters had fallen an extremely low point that it was turning into insanity. Finally the Old man recovered and yelled at the two.
“Just get upstairs and have a shower already. Brat, you can just the shower on the third floor. After that you can use the dojo, although you might need to take another shower it’s better than being covered in food.”
“Thanks Old man! Hey Azla get off and go get cleaned.”
Lisa passed Landon a piece of cloth to wipe any of the larger pieces of food and liquids off his body. As he finished he quickly grabbed the depressed Azla and started to clean her face before rubbing her head. Naturally he gave a light scold to her, but Azla wasn’t worried about such a thing and happily smile while being scolded. Of course it went in one ear and out the other, but she was happy enough to get some long deserved attention.
After being completely ignored Landon only gave a soft smile. He too missed his sisters and enjoyed the silly moment with them. He finally gave up and gestured for his sister to quickly get cleaned up. After he did he gave a slight pat and ‘job well done’ thumbs up to Lisa who was working hard without making mistakes left and right.
He then also rushed upstairs and entered the bathroom without any troubles. Naturally after working here so long he had been through the Old man’s house on numerous occasions and knew it like the back of his hand. Thus he immediately jumped in the shower. Though he did forget one important thing, and that was a change of clothes!
“Sigh! I swear playing this game is absolutely ridiculous! How could I get such an unlucky class where I have to build a kingdom?! I just wanted to relax and enjoy myself and maybe travel with Landon if I got the chance. But now, I’m stuck with 4 followers that would rather be treated as slaves! What do I do if Landon sees that?!”
Just as Sarah was complaining out loud, as she naturally felt she was alone she realized she was wrong soon after. Struck dumbfounded and unable to do anything but stare at the person in front of her. The person in front of he was of course Landon, however at this point in time Landon, was now half-naked! He was only covered in a towel around the waist and because he forgot a change of clothes and his previous clothes were dirty, he had no other choice but to rush to the dojo in the back of the house. He originally thought he wouldn’t be caught because Sarah was currently also playing [Second Saga] however little did he know that after being stressed about her new quest she decided to take a breather and relax. Both of them didn’t expect the situation to occur.
Now that it did however, Landon stood there in an awkward manner whereas Sarah stood there so shocked her jaw might fall to the ground. Of course when Sarah finally recovered her ability to think she turned around and flushed a deep red. She was so red she felt she caught a fever almost instantly! Landon who also recovered quickly went back into the bathroom and called out to Sarah.
“I’m Sorry! I got covered in food from my sister and needed to borrow the shower and… I forgot to get a change of clothes from the dojo…”
“It’s okay…I was just slightly startled. Here let me get you a change of clothes.”
As Sarah tried to answer as naturally as possible, she passed the bathroom and once again her face changed into a darker red. She was an overly innocent girl and because of that she had never had a boyfriend even during her school years, she hadn’t ever had the chance to see a boy her age half-naked. It was a shock to her greatly and she could only slightly have a fantasy as she walked to get a change of clothes for Landon.
