‘Hunter,’ the mysterious text ‘ The Reincarnation Paradise’ used when addressing Su Xiao.
This nickname made Su Xiao feel a bit weird because he did not sign the so-called contract.
“What is a hunter?”
This question from Su Xiao got promptly answered by ‘the Reincarnation Paradise.’
“After signing the contract, ordinary people will become contractors, and perform missions for ‘the Reincarnation Paradise’ and get rewards after completing the missions.”
“Hunters are contractors who have special talents, talents that are useful in combat.”
“When hunters perform ordinary missions, ‘ The Reincarnation Paradise’ will simultaneously give hunting missions to clean up ‘Renegade’ contractors.”
“The number of inquiries is exhausted, ‘Reincarnation Paradise’ will no longer answer questions. Please sign the contract or wait for death.”
All Lights faded, the surroundings became utterly dark.
An old fashioned parchment popped up and hanged in the void.
Su Xiao struggled to stand up and walked to the parchment.
The parchment was filled with weird symbols and, at the bottom, a blank space.
“Do I sign the contract? To be real, it’s not like I even have a choice. Isn’t this Duress?”
Su Xiao felt that if he signs the contract, his life will undergo earth-shaking changes.
He has too many things to do. Even if there’s a deep abyss in front of him, he can only jump into it. After sorting his thoughts, he answered.
Su Xiao’s voice just fell, his hand was lifted against his will, and his thumb pressed on the blank space on the parchment.
A stinging pain came from his fingertips, a touch of blood dropped on the parchment, and the parchment became pale red, with a faint bloody odor.
“The contract is established! Commencing healing of The Hunter’s injuries.”
A pale green light appeared around Su Xiao and covered his body. His injuries fully recovered in a few seconds.
[Recovery complete, waking up The Hunter’s talents forcibly.]
His body instantly recovered, and without waiting for him to speak, a severe pain came from all over his body.
The pain came suddenly and had made the veins on Su Xiao’s body bulge out horrifically. Some of them even burst.
However, Su Xiao’s endurance was beyond ordinary people, so he just let out a groan and fell on the ground on one knee.
The pain left as fast as it came. Su Xiao felt that something in his body was awakened.
This feeling is not abrupt. It seemed he had some unknown ability, but he hadn’t been able to detect it until now.
“To observe the overall quality of the ‘hunter,’ semi-Digitalization is turned on.”
“Warning: ‘semi-Digitalization’ is not accurate. If important organisms such as the heart, brain, and so on got injured severely, the ‘hunter’ would still die. Please deal with the ‘derivative world’ discreetly.”
“Starting ’Hunter’ special trial, if the trial cannot be finished, ‘The Reincarnation paradise’ shall take back The Hunter’s identity, and you will be an ordinary contractor. Please be aware that if you were to die, there would be no second chances. ”
“Reincarnation paradise Regulations: Every exchange has an equal price.”
Su Xiao just read those words in front of him. He felt dizzy and lost consciousness.
When Su Xiao woke up again, he was already in a broken-down house.
This house was only a dozen square meters in size, and the roof was half-collapsed, and sunlight entered the room without any hindrance.
There were a lot of spider webs in the corners, which were covered with dust. The windows and doors were blocked with huge trash piles. Some of it even got in the room.
Huge pieces of garbage cover this broken house, so only the roof could be used to get out of this place.
The pungent, sour smell from the garbage entered Su Xiao’s nose. It made him want to leave this place as soon as possible. As he was about to leave, there was a burning sensation in his arm.
A black tattoo with a shape of a sword appeared on his arm.
The pale blue texts appeared again.
It appeared directly in his sight this time instead of drafting in the air. Though he moved his eye, those words just stayed static, as if they were attached to his retinas.
The content of those words was as below:
World: one piece.
World difficulty: LV.6. Nightmare (this is the difficulty of the Hunter’s exclusive trial)
The world’s source: 0% (interacting with the characters in this world will help you gain the world’s source, which will be calculated along with the emission rate to give the final reward to the Hunter.)
World camps: marine, the revolutionary army, pirates, world government.
Main task: kill the king of the Goa Kingdom.
Secondary task: none.
Warning: please do not mention anything related to ‘reincarnation paradise’; if the warning is ignored, the Hunter will be executed instantly.
Tip: This world is a high ‘derivative world,’ please do not leave the ‘Goa kingdom’ area. Otherwise, the world’s difficulty will rise.
Tip: Because ‘Hunter’ entered this world for the first time, ‘Hunter’ can automatically utilize the world’s language. The mission’s time limit is three days.
The world starts now!
The text disappeared, and Su Xiao started sorting out the information he received.
First, he was invited to a mysterious thing called ‘Reincarnation paradise,’ he did not know its purpose. Still, his goal is obvious: getting power from ‘reincarnation paradise’ and executing his revenge.
The second thing is his current situation. He came to the world of One piece.
Though he wanted his revenge, he still watched some anime or read some manga to relax in his rare moments of free time. People cannot be stressed all the time.
From what Su Xiao’s remembered, he could conclude that this was a dangerous world. Specific individuals in this world can destroy whole islands or even countries.
Su Xiao was only an ordinary person. Although he might be slightly stronger than average due to the skills he attained for his revenge, it wasn’t enough for him to survive a fight against any of the characters in the anime.
From the word ‘nightmare’ in world difficulty, you can tell how difficult this world was.
As for the task, Su Xiao could not understand it.
“Kill the king of the Goa kingdom’,” only these few simple words. There were no other clues.
Su Xiao had a headache as a message came from the new tattoo on his arm. It implanted knowledge into his brain, which allowed him to use the tattoo to see and do certain things. After activating the tattoo, this was what appeared in his eyes.
First, personal information (status).
Third, storage space.
Su Xiao couldn’t use any functions except for the first (status) and the second (tasks).
He was eager to know about the specific content of the task. He had a feeling that the reincarnation paradise will not tolerate any failure during the functions. If he fails, he will die. It seems failure meant being lowered to an ordinary contractor, which must be a type of punishment, thought Su Xiao. He was made aware of the cruelty of ‘Reincarnation Paradise’, despite signing the contract just a few minutes ago.
Opening the options of the tasks, the specific information of the Quest appeared.
“Primarily task: kill the king of the Goa kingdom’”
Difficulty level: LV.3
Task description: ‘Goa kingdom’ is located in the east blue, which rules those nearby cities and villages. It is surrounded by Foosha village and ‘Columbo Mountain.’
Task information: Use any methods to kill the king of the Goa kingdom’. ‘Phillips Herbert’ always stays within the palace, which increases the difficulty of this mission.
Task period: 72 hours.
Task reward: Recieve The Hunter’s identity permanently.
With this information, Su Xiao finally understood who he was going to kill and the precise place.
The location he is now is most likely the ‘Gray terminal’ near ‘goa kingdom,’ no wonder there’s lots of trash surrounding this place. This place will be burned down when the Celestial dragons decide to visit the Goa Kingdom.
The main character Monkey D. Luffy and the crucial character Ace and Sabo stayed in Columbo Mountain during their childhood. There is also a group of pirates living inside the mountain.
But he didn’t know the current time. He assumed that before the Celestial dragon came to Goa kingdom, he wasn’t sure since in the story, even after the celestial dragon left this place, till remained a garbage dump.
The Gao kingdom’s capital was located near the Columbo mountain and right next to the Gray terminal.
The Goa kingdom left the trash here.
When Su Xiao remembered what kind of place this is, he started leaving in a hurry. The situation was very dangerous since many exiles, criminals, and other types of dangerous people could be found here.
He started to think of the next step after understanding the situation.
Su Xiao closed the task window and opened his status.
