Come to Death
Finally, today I can go to somewhere where no one will humiliate me again. The world where I can become everything. The VRMMORPG S.A.L.
I am Pak Lee Han. My parents were well known researchers. One day when I was 5 years old, the lab where they were working was blown but those so called investigators never gave any report of what happened at that day, at least not in public. that day brought end to all my dreams. After that for 2 years I did many small jobs, fought against roughs and did everything to survive by myself.
One day some people suddenly came and kidnapped me. After I gained my consciousness back, I was at their HQ. In front of me was a man in his 50s but the cold aura around him was terrifying. He told me to join them or die. By ‘them’ means an assassination organization that has a lot of influence in the upper echelon of almost every country. He said that they don’t commit terrorism, only assassination. He also said that if I join them I can learn the real reason behind my parents death. I chose to join them.
After that for 5 years I had to go through a hellish training. Truthfully sometimes I thought that dying would be better than this. That man who talked to me the first day was Jacob Steward, the leader of organization. He was also my trainer. After my training was complete he called me.
“Listen kid, I found out the reason of your parents death but that explosion was only a small part of a vast picture. You see, the project your parents were working was a part of a very high powered A.I. creation project. Some people wanted that A.I. for their own and was pressuring the head of the project to hand it over to them and when they refused, those people tried to frighten or destroy them and your parents ended up becoming their target.”
“Kid, we got assignment to finish those people. Will you join the team that is going for their head?”
“Good, here are the details of the mission. Take rest today and repost to the team leader tomorrow.”
After that we hunted down many of those basterds. Only now my parents can rest in peace and some of the humiliation I faced after their death was returned. Our mission continued for 6 years. Then we heard that the rest of those basterds who are alive has stopped interfering with the project and the A.I. will become the core of a game, the world’s first VRMMORPG S.A.L. After that I did some more missions and most of them were mainly to finish filths from the society.
Now I am 18 years old. Leader gave me a new mission. It is to establish our organization in S.A.L. It’s almost time for the game to open. I put up the Exgear. Almost 12 a.m. The server will start now. Then everything went black and the next thing I noticed was that I was standing on a transparent plane.
I saw a black shadow in front of me with two red eyes.
“I will not tell you who I am now. First I am going to scan your brain or soul and determine your worth. Here you can’t choose anything except your name. So, think of a good name for you now.”
The shadow stopped talking. Still, nothing to choose huh. It might become a good challenge to get strong.
“Yes, it will be interesting to see you getting strong. Kid listen carefully, this world is similar to yours. It’s a multiverse. Billions of planets exist here. It is mainly divided into two types. Systems that belongs to the side of light and the side of darkness. Those having a good heart will go to light side and those having a corrupted heart will go to dark side. Here each and every life is special, we can’t recreate any person who is dead. Light system’s main planet is Lahn and dark side’s main planet is Onera. As a player you will get skill window, map, inventory, friend list and guild bar. Light point and dark point is fame and infamy. PKing is only possible during wars. Should you kill any player or NPC or commit any sin, you will gain infamy. Both sides can’t enter the other side without any event. Should you enter, you will gain heavy punishment. Should you wish to create a guild you must register your guild at the main planet of the side you belong to. Any question?”
“How can I know how strong I am and which side I am going to?”
“Almost every planet have their own ranking system. Now normally there are two sides but there is another side as well.”
“Yes, death. Death is neither light nor darkness. Death cannot favor saints nor can condemn sinners. But death punish the twisted ones. Kid, your life has gone through so much that you should understand the evil side of life. Do you wish to become a messenger of death? Granting peaceful end to saints and ending the twisted scum of those sinners? Can you carry the burden of killing someone and live your life with it?”
HAHAHAHAHA. This is the greatest opportunity I ever got. Everything I want I can gain here.
“Good, there are others like you will be there. They will train you. If you want to talk with me, you only need to think of me. Now go, for the time has come.”
“Wait, who are you?”
“I am Death.”
Everything around me turn blank before I heard-
“Sir, the baby is born. It’s a boy.”
