My Custom System
[ 3rd POV ]
Slowly opening her eyes, she stares as a ray of moonlight manages to pierce the dense tree roof of the forest that surrounded her. The darkness that surrounded her, not allowing her to see more than a few meters around, her eyes not yet adjusted to the dim environment.
The moonlight slightly illuminated her face, she was laying on the ground as she gazed at the moonlight, she was brought out of her thoughts by a light graze on her leg. Trying to get up she felt her legs trembling for a second before giving out making her stumble to her knees.
Where am I? she asked to herself.
Slowly she raised one hand to her forehead and laid the other on the soft grass beneath her. She slowly looked around her, feeling her whole body stiff. Looking up she carefully observes the forest roof, layers upon layers of branches hiding the night sky, only letting through small specs of moonlight.
Moving her head down she spots the rough ground, covered by a silk soft grass that graces her leg occasionally as a small breeze of wind passes through the dense forest. Moving from the ground she glances forward, focusing on the trees themselves she studies the barely visible tree logs rising from the ground, a small ray of moonlight shows the rugged texture of the trees.
Being brought out of her thoughts she suddenly feels a sharp pain in her head, she quickly lowers to the ground with her head between her knees and hands covering and gripping her forehead, letting out short and uneven breaths.
===================== FLASHBACK ====================
Why am I here? … Where am I? … What happened?
Being surrounded by a void, or something similar in the distance one can see neatly organized souls, they, however, appear too big, with constantly changing colors, some simply implode being brought smaller and smaller to a point where they will disappear creating an exact copy of the previous one.
Trying to remember, the soul surrounded by void starts to recall short and few memories of what happened.
Ah … I see, I died.
Being surrounded by nothingness the soul slowly remembers its life or when it was its life. With no way of telling time, the soul stuck to its own thoughts. As time passes, if time can pass in a place like the void, the soul finally recalls its most fundamental memories.
So, I died, because of a truck … that came from underground, somehow?
[ soul POV ]
Doesn matter how many times I try to comprehend how physically possible it is for a truck to come from underground. I just can , I feel like Im going to die again if I think too hard.
Anyways being stuck to my own thoughts isn as bad as I thought, I always had a wild imagination, still, is this supposed to be limbo or something because I can see, feel, smell, touch, or hear anything, its just me and my memories that I somehow have a perfect control on, its like watching a movie.
It was a sad sight, the ”movie ” recalled how I basically closed myself off from others, being alone most of the time. Similar to now I would be stuck to my own thoughts imagining small scenarios of different stories I knew and overthinking the thoughts of others if I somehow interacted with them.
A yes social anxiety, what a fascinating thing it is to be scared of talking to others, who am I kid –
” Are you done with your pathetic sob story already? ” a voice echoed.
[ 3rd POV ]
The scene changed from one second to the next, what was once the void is now a completely white box.
” How did you even get to the void and even survive it for so long?! ” the voice said, outraged.
” Ehh… ” the soul tried to answer, but was cut off.
” To be able to stay with only your own thoughts for that long is highly improbable, most souls implode after some time ” the voice continued.
” Bu – ” the soul tried again, but was cut off.
” And to be able to enter the void, how is it even possible, never in my life have I seen something like this happen, ” the voice said to itself.
” I don think – ” the soul tried again but was cut off again.
” Don talk for a second, ok? Im still trying to comprehend something that should be impossible? ” the voice said, clearly angry with what was happening.
” You know what it doesn matter, just stay silent. I will do the rest, ” the voice said finally.
On one of the rooms walls a screen appeared with a video playing, it was going so fast that you could only see a blur. Just like it appeared it disappeared, the wall becoming like it once was.
” hmm… interesting, very interesting, your life was mediocre at best but that imagination of yours is something else very interesting, ” the voice said with a curious tone.
” What is that supposed to mean? ” the soul finally said.
” I told you to stay silent … I already read your thoughts, dreams and memories so don worry, ” the voice said with resolve.
Suddenly a blinding light appeared in the room, slowly dimming it to show the figure of an uncharacteristic, humanoid creature made of light. Slowly approaching the soul, the creature touched it lightly causing another bright light to engulf the room. As the light disappeared it showed the same soul, nothing appears to change.
” What did you do? the soul asked curiously.
” Something so you would be able to reincarnate, nothing much ” the creature said calmly.
” So its like those novels I read, ” the soul muttered to itself.
” Wait does that mean i get wishes and all ” it said with a little excitement in its voice.
” yeah yeah, just tell me what you wish already so I can go back to more important matters, ” the creature said tiredly.
” Are you like a god or something? ” the soul asked.
” Something like that but more powerful, I usually don do the reincarnation stuff ” the creature answers.
” So its supposed to be someone else who reincarnates me, hmmm … so what do you usually do then? ” the soul questions.
” Lesser gods are supposed to manage the reincarnation cycle, and I just laze around making sure the rebirth cycle of omniverses continues like normal … very boring in my opinion ” the creature answers.
” Sounds very interesting to me but i guess it gets boring after the first few hundred years ” the orb said
” Something like that, after watching every omniverse it can get very boring as nothing interesting ever happens anymore it just repeats itself … wait what am i doing talking with you just say your wish so i can continue to laze around ” the creature said
” Do I get a number or something? Are there any restrictions or something? ” the soul questioned.
” Just tell me your wish. I say yes or no, hurry up already, ” the creature said, losing its patience.
” Oh, I know, I wish – ” the soul tried to say.
” You don have to answer, I already read your mind sooo … good luck, bye~, ” the creature said, relieved that the soul had left.
The soul was engulfed in the light again and later disappeared, leaving the humanoid creature alone.
” I should probably keep my eye on it, this could end badly. That wish was weird and came with many things but still, to alter so much about itself, it either hated itself or something but I had to tone it down, if not it would have nothing left of itself. Anyways, creating your own system, now that is interesting ” the creature said to himself.
The creature slowly disappeared from the room, leaving the room to implode into nothingness. In a white room similar to the last one, a soul floated in the middle, unmoving.
[ SOUL POV ]
This is really something, just thinking of a change makes the panel different, I imagined it would be more complicated, now before continuing, one last check.
Status, check, Store with its own currency which sells skills and items from different universes, check, skill with levels from 1 – 10, check, ability to level up skills with store currency, check, ai to help with questions of the system, check, being able to edit later in case I forgot something, check, missions with low penalties and optional, check, and finally an infinite amount of the store currency, double check.
Wait … what do I do now I thought.
A white light started to cover me slowly as well as the entire room, and in the next instant, I was gone as well as the room.
