The 100th Regression of the Max-Level Player - RMLP Chapter 7: Backstab (Part 2)
It was easy, he just had to attack the angel in the back first and obtained the reward before getting hit himself.
As he was thinking these thoughts, the angel turned around, possibly because she felt a cold chill on the back of her neck.
“Why are you so far behind? Can’t you keep up?”
Ryu Min approached with quick steps, but the angel’s expression was still full of displeasure.
“Humans always have to be shouted at to understand. Tsk.”
And what’s worse they are all greedy.
Humans were a race that could not feel full even if they drink the ocean.
“If you want to be treated like a pig, then you’ll get what you deserve. Sure, I’ll show you the price of your greed. Kyohohoho.”
Briel laughed to herself as the thought alone was amusing.
She never had any intention of exchanging the reward for Ryu Min.
She didn’t even have the ability to do that.
“How can I change the reward that’s predetermined by the system?”
She had only enticed him with sweet words.
In order to kill the human in front of her in a place without any witnesses.
“There’s no rule that says I can’t kill a player.”
Didn’t she already kill one at the beginning; well that was a one-time thing and now it’s not possible.
“In fact, I can kill humans, but I can’t kill them openly. Who knows what kind of trouble I’ll get into if I do that?”
There’s no rule that says she can’t kill a player, but there’s also no rule that says she can.
It would be a huge problem if she killed a player for personal reasons.
What if the players rebelled later, claiming unevenness?
She would ruin the game they have worked so hard for.
At that point, Briel would not be able to avoid responsibility.
“So the cleanest and best way is to kill them without leaving any witnesses.”
Briel couldn’t bear to look at the person who hurt her pride.
She couldn’t just let it go, it would be against her dignity.
“Other humans are scared and obey well, but this person who’s ranked #1 has stirred things up by haggling for rewards.”
They’re all the same, after reaching #1, they became greedy.
“What a stupid bastard. He could’ve settled for what he got, but he had to run his mouth.”
The more she thought about it, the more she felt disgusted by him.
“After we pass this place, I’ll kill him right away.”
The angel who had become so distant that none of the players could see her suddenly stopped walking.
This was a good place to get the job done.
“Well, you want a better reward, don’t you? What kind of reward do you want…?”
At that moment, Briel turned around and was surprised to see a fist in front of her.
She stumbled and fell, clutching her face in pain.
She couldn’t regain her composure due to the shock, not the pain.
“What’s going on? Did that human hit me?”
Soon, she realized what had happened to her, and her smooth forehead wrinkled uncontrollably.
[You damn human!]
She turned her head, but the human was nowhere in sight. However, she could easily tell where he was. She felt his presence behind her.
Ryu Min was holding his new dagger tightly.
“Hey, wait a minute! What are you trying to do…!”
The sound was chilling, and the angel’s mouth opened wide in horror.
Ryu Min brushed away the drooping wings and grabbed the other one. He was determined to break both wings, so the angel couldn’t escape.
“Screaming in pain?”
Despite the angel’s scream, Ryu Min shouted back in disbelief.
“It always amazes me to see you scream like this, it’s really different from how you acted tough before, laughing at the people dying, how was it… Kyohohoho?!”
[Are you insane, human? What are you saying…!]
“You were going to kill me with that dagger hidden in your wings, weren’t you?”
Seeing the angel’s stunned expression, Ryu Min smiled.
“I knew it.”
[Killing you?! I never thought of that…]
“You don’t have to lie. Because it’s all over the face. Briel.”
Briel’s eyes widened.
[How could a human like you…?]
“I don’t know about that.”
Ryu Min raised her hand, revealing a dagger he had selected as his first prize, a stiletto.
[What are you doing with that weapon all of a sudden?]
“Don’t you see?”
The piercing look in Ryu Min’s eyes silenced Briel.
He didn’t say anything, but she knew she would soon die in this spot.
Although fear crept into her heart at the moment she was caught, Briel’s pride remained unbroken.
[Are you crazy, human? Did your head explode or something?]
“Nope, you can’t use that anymore.”
The moment her weakness was exposed, Briel was speechless.
The voice of the angel was filled with confusion.
[Do you really think you can survive by doing this? Surely my colleagues won’t just stand by and watch!]
[What colleagues? Don’t you know that angels are selfish beings who are not interested in others even their own race? Whether you live or die, none of them would care,” replied Ryu Min, gripping his dagger.
Briel’s face showed desperation as she realized the danger she was in.
[Wait! There’s nothing to gain by killing me!] pleaded the angel.
“There is. You just don’t know it,” replied Ryu Min with a smirk.
[If you kill me, you’ll regret it! You won’t be able to go home!] said the angel in a last-ditch effort to save herself.
“We can go home. The system will automatically send us home after a period of time,” said Ryu Min dismissively.
[How do you know that? What else do you know?] asked the angel, grasping at straws.
“Why do you care? You’re dead anyway,” said Ryu Min, before stabbing the angel in the heart.
Briel’s eyes widened as Ryu Min’s dagger pierced her chest.
“Gaaah!” she screamed as her body shook and he fell to the ground, while her golden blood was flowing from her torn chest.
Ryu Min didn’t even look twice at her, instead, his attention turned to the message that had just appeared in his vision. It was a message about a hidden reward.
