The Life Of A Haughty Prince. Chapter 44
"Oh right, you have to die first," Alina said calmly.
"Can't explain it now. You will know when it happens."
"Wait, what?" Atlas said in confusion.
"Don't worry, it's not as serious as you think."
'What? Women, you just said I need to die a second ago. How the fuck is dying not serious?'
Alina stood up from the sofa, pulling down her tight skirt a bit. She fixed her blue hair pulling it with a ribbon and changed back to her usual ponytail hairstyle. She started walking when suddenly her feet started feeling loose and weak.
"wooow..my feet still feel a bit wobbly, thanks to you," Alina said looking at him like he was the culprit for her situation.
"yaa..it felt so good inside you that I couldn't control myself."
"Humph.. You must say that to all the ladies you slept with." She said with her pouting cheek but with a slight smile that didn't escape his eyes.
"What made you think that?"
"It's just...you were s..so good and ex.perienced at it," she said in an embarrassed tone, her cheeks turning a bit red.
"Hahaha..I guess you are right"
"Shameless" Alina said being back to her pouting mood.
'I did just lost my virginity two weeks ago, only in this world though, haha. Wait, concentrate, she said I need to die a moment ago but why was she so calm about it, was it metaphorical.
.lets' follow her for now, Bela wouldn't just link me with them, if they would try to kill me from the start and I still have my trump cards to escape, so lets' calm down and just be alert for anything.'
"Ok, would you mind lead the way now, Miss Alina?"
Alina didn't say anything and walked towards the desk. She took out a key from her storage ring and plucked it on one of joseph's lockers hidden within the desk.
With a clank, it opened and a bright purple light came out blinding her eyes.
"ohh it's already activated, he must have already burned the card, why is it always so bright, forgot how much this hurts the eye." Alina said trying to cover her eyes.
Atlas who was observing what was happening was still confused about what she was doing, he saw the purple light but it didn't affect his eyes as he was covered by his black mask.
He immediately used his "all-seer" on the shining object, curious to know what it was and why it was hidden on the desk of the spearhead of an adventurer's guild.
'God.please don't be unknown, please don't be unknown,."
He prayed he would know what this thing was as he was seeing it for the first time. He was tired of being in the dark most of the period.
The usual screen of his system appeared in front of him.
'It's a knife? What? There must be something more about it. It can't be just a fucking carving knife.
System, more description please.'
Description: knife used for carving into people's hearts.
'what? I still don't understand. System further discr.'
"It's already moving, be ready prince. It's already stimulated with your card." Alina said in a hurry.
"Wait what's going on? I still don..."
He suddenly felt a sharp but hot substance piercing into his heart and when he looked down, it was the same knife burning with purple flames.
'Shit! It cut through my mana barrier like it was nothing. Am I going to die now, was my death really written today. but why don't I feel any pain.'
Atlas slowly stopped feeling his body, but he held in as much as he could, kneeling on the floor with his right hand touching his chest. The knife fell down from his chest leaving the purple flame still burning on his heart. Slowly the flame changed color turning darker and darker.
Alina looked in awe, as she saw the flame turned from purple to dark purple and dark purple to fully dark and finally changing into pitch-black that not even the surrounding light could shine upon it, burning rigorously every passing second.
"So leader really did said the truth, I thought he was lying about you possessing a black card. It's my first time watching the black flame really."
The words she was saying didn't enter his ears one bit, for him, all his senses were getting duller and duller, his eyes getting blurry, his ears ringing and his body leisurely not responding to his own will. After a couple of seconds, everything inside his body stopped working for a millisecond except his heart which was covered with pitch-black flames and beating rigorously like never before.
After that one millisecond of nothingness which felt like a dream, shy away from death. He slowly gained back his consciousness and sense of self but that wasn't all, new information started pouring into his mind with it. When he finally opened his eyes and gained control of his body, his heartbeat finally became normal with the previous black flame, nowhere to be seen.
He touched the left portion of his chest trying to trace his deep wound pierced by the flaming knife a minute ago but there was nothing to be traced and no wound to feel, only a rugged surface like something was carved over the skin of his chest.
He quickly took off his leather shirt to clearly see what was really on his chest and walked near the half-figure size mirror to gaze at himself and to his surprise there it was, a black marking on his left chest, drawn in the shape of a star circled between two wings.
Atlas curiously touched it, still a bit surprised, not because of the new mark on his chest but the new information he got from his so-called resurrection.
'System, save all the information from my memories.'
Required images and data found...
'Holy fuck! Was there so many, I mean so many freaking monsters in the human region? I will die if I face even one of the B-level monsters without my Teleportation symbol. I guess father wasn't just hunting to just bond with the soldiers once or twice within three months of time. He was protecting our kingdom, from those, those'
Atlas envisioned the images and information of the gigantic leviathans within his mind.
'.....freaking City destroying kaiju level monsters.'
As he was collecting his thoughts. He felt two soft and dainty hands creeping up from behind. It was of course Alina. Who, out of nowhere hugged him from behind, feeling up every part of his skin and tight muscles pressing her soft squishy melons on his back. He also felt she was breathing excessively, taking as much air from her nose but he didn't care much about it, blaming it on his lust aura.
"Is it all real?" he suddenly asked.
"ummsmells soo goo...wait what did you say."
"I said if it is all real?"
"You still remember all of them?"
"yaa.all of them."
"Well that's odd, it was just supposed to show a sneak peek, about all the numerous monsters. When it was my time, I could only remember a few laws and monsters. Must because of your Black card. Hhmmmm..how unfair."
'oh, you don't want those images stuck in your head, my dear Alina.' He thought.
"Oh, and you asked if they were real? I don't know what you saw from your vision but from the information I have, everything should be real and genuine."
'oh.shitwait.what are you worrying about, you getting cold feet. Remember why you are trying to be strong, you have the power, you have the talent. All you need is experience and they won't just throw you to hunt those types of monsters from the very beginning, everything will start bit by bit. ' Atlas said it to himself.
Atlas took a long breath from his mask.
'Ok, let's do this.'
"So, I'm part of the "Alibion" now."
"Yes, yes you are, only a trainee for now though."
Her hand which was stirring all over his bare body, moved to his left chest, touching the single star mark.
"This one star represents, you are just a beginner but with black color in the mix, it shows you are recommended from someone higher, you must be strong to get commended with a black card. I am quite jealous you know."
"haha.I hope what you are saying is true."
Atlas wanted to turn around and wear his leather clothes but his body was still tightly hugged by Alina.
"Ms. Alina, I can't move, you know."
"I will only let gohmmafter a year.?" Alina said calmly
"haha...I hope you are joking Ms. Alina."
"Just call me Alina, Mr. Prince. You already fucked my brains out, feeling up every inch of my body. I won't stand if you used the word Ms. in my name ever again." Alina said in an angry tone.
"Are you sure? You know that you still don't know my real name right? hell, you don't even know how I look. So I hope you are a bit more cautious around me."
"Ohh, Are you worried about me? How cute. Don't worry, I'm just following my heart and my heart is always right and who said I don't know anything about you."
Alina suddenly grabbed his limp but thick dick from his pants and started feeling it up.
"I know 'this' guy, I would call it your little brother but it doesn't seem to fit the bill. I mean, really, what did you ate to grow your staff this huge and thick."
"Let's just call it God's gift. So Ms.ouch, sorry, so, Alina what's next?"
"There's actually nothing more, most would be chosen to join "Alibion" through being a competent adventurer and after showing they have enough skills and a good mindset, they are chosen and watched and investigated daily and finally after they suit all the demands by the higher up who found them, like our leader Joseph and also that bitch, sorry I meant the devil's witch. They are given a card with a color grade, displaying the importance and potential they have in their skill set.
Ranging from (red < silver < gold < purple < black < shining white), but the color doesn't stay the same, it can change with your increase in rank like from one star to two stars. It really depends on your hard work.
As my Master says, "Hard work always defeats talent in the end." And she herself is living proof of that. Coming from one red-star to five purple-star and can't also forget our guild Leader. He was also the same and you already know how strong he is now."
'ya.his punch and grip left quite an image on me.'
"So, how many stars can one person possess?"
"My master said, from the ancient times of "Alibion" establishment, the maximum one person can hold is a total of seven but nobody has ever seen one. So it's still kind of mystery."
'So this mysterious hidden society of chosen adventurers has been here roaming and killing powerful monsters for centuries, balancing the typical human society. Pretty cool if I say so. but the gruesome visions and hard-to-swallow information which I just got says another.'
"sowhen do we start then?" asked Atlas.
Alina finally let go of him with a regretful sigh and feeling his freedom, Atlas also wore his leather shirt and looked back at her.
"Now you see it right?" asked Alina, showing her bare left chest.
"Ahem.yes, you are Silver two-star. Which means..?"
"Which means I am your senior for now. We all have our own freedom but for beginners like you, you need to follow orders. So let's go."
"ok 'senior', where are we going?"
"To complete your first Mission."
"With me, to akohama jungle."
"Wait, isn't that too far?" Atlas asked in confusion.
"Hahahaha.....you are an Alibion adventure now, nothing is far away from us."
