Chapter 2. Constellation (2)
It wasn’t just a matter of name and appearance. Since <The Fall of Another World> unfolded first from the villain, Baek Tae-beom’s view, it was not detailed, but it was possible to know what happened during his first awakening and the events of his betrayal after that.
Baek Tae-beom, who suffered many hardships, was even abandoned by the constellations, because he had no talent as a hunter. He was looked down on for two years, and eventually turned to the dark side and stalked the main character, who was friendly to him.
And this is the place where he awakens, inside a cramped elevator. As far as I can remember, Baek Tae-beom survives here alone.
Doesn’t that mean I’ve become an extra at the very beginning?
How he survived was not depicted in the novel, but it certainly wouldn’t be through the usual way. That was because, in the novel, Baek Tae-beom from 2 years ago was easily deceived since he was gentle, kind, and foolish.
And as expected, Baek Tae-beom was leaning on the elevator wall, looking at the others with a bewildered expression. He probably doesn’t even know that his eyes were glowing gold.
Most of those who have awakened, change their appearance. Altering their body shape, the development of muscles, and changing of hair or eye color was a daily occurrence. In the novel, there was also an awakened person, whose hair color changed whenever he used a skill.
“What the hell is going on here?! You! Do you know what’s happening?”
“I-I don’t know. What’s going on….”
“Shit! This… You!”
As the man with a grim expression turned his head, his eyes and Baek Tae-beom’s eyes met. Baek Tae-beom, who was startled, flinched, and tried to back away, but the man came closer and grabbed him by the collar.
“You, why do you have golden eyes?!”
“You… You’re the culprit, aren’t you? The demon, or something like that!”
Then, at once, the man punched Baek Tae-beom in the face. I was so startled that I blocked him from Baek Tae-beom and forcibly removed his grip on his collar.
“What are you doing, suddenly punching someone in the face!”
To someone who might destroy the world at that!
I moved with concern for the man in front of me, but he didn’t seem to know it.
“What? Get out my way. Haven’t you seen it? There’s a demon hiding in here!”
“Do you have any proof that it is this man? You’re using violence without any evidence!”
He’s a guy who can kill us all and escape!
The man, who was huffing at his words, soon found his daughter crying. While hugging his child, he sighed. Only then could I look back at Baek Tae-beom.
He’s taller and bigger than me, but he still got hit.
“Are you alright?”
“…Ah, yes. Thank you.”
You are very grateful, right?
He had a bizarre expression on his face, it was as if he was looking at his prince charming who had saved him. It felt strange to get this look from the horrible villain in the novel, but for now, I had to put aside such trivial things.
Right now, it is 2 years before the time Baek Tae-beom turned evil in the novel. And in the original story, Baek Tae-beom definitely survived his first monster outbreak.
What should I do now? It was only a matter of time before Baek Tae-beom would be named as the demon, who did this to them and get beaten because of that. As if he knew I was nervous, Baek Tae-beom rubbed his cheek and tapped my shoulder.
“Would you like to see this? I don’t know what’s going on here..”
As if telling the situation in real-time, on the social media platform run on the cell phone he showed, there were many strange pictures and posts asking for help. At the same time, disaster messages were received every 10 seconds, and the urgency of the situation was felt.
After looking at them, I just came up with a way out of this situation.
I don’t know what it is, but before some kind of incident happens, shouldn’t we escape first?
Somehow, I was in the state of a ‘constellation’ now. It meant that I was in a state, where I was able to sponsor a specific awakened person to clear the dungeon.
“We will be able to leave soon.”
I opened the skill window, speaking calmly so that the others could be reassured.
[Skill: Order of Incarnation]
[It is said that humans who see the true form of God become blind.]
[Skill: Open Shop]
[You can purchase items by opening the shop used by the constellations.]
[You can send a message to a specific awakened person.]
[You can select and sponsor an awakened person. You must sponsor at least 1 coin to do that.]
Now that it’s like this, I have no choice, but to support Baek Tae-beom and escape from here!
[Skill: Activate sponsor.]
[Skill: Sponsor has been canceled.]
[The sponsorship of 10,000 coins has been canceled.]
[Reason: Insufficient amount of coins]
[Current coins: 0]
“The two of you, what are you talking about?”
I laughed as I looked at the angry uncle.
Mister, I think we’re screwed.
