Nameless Extras journey

Chapter 8 - first dungeon exploration (2)

I feel massive pressure as officer ross asked the final question. I tried my best to stay composed and replied in the same calm tone.

” I did not know them or their plan. I am not part of their team or have anything related to them. ” ( David)

All my strength gets drained from my body as I answered the question. Just after I completed my sentence pressure gets evaporated like it does not exist in the first place.

I looked at officer ross with fear and awe. These are the strong rankers. They can kill low-level rankers like me with their pressure alone.

” thank you for answering my questions and you may leave. Have a good day and happy college life Mr. David. ” ( officer ross)

I thanked officer ross and left the room with a still fast-beating heart and disturbed mind.

***

After David left the room ross took a cigarette and lit it with mana. After taking a couple of puffs the door gets opened by someone.

A woman entered the room and frowned at officer rosss actions. She talked in a cold and indifferent voice.

” Smoking is banned at work hours so please stop it officer ross. ” ( woman)

Without giving any glance to the lady officer ross continued to smoke and replied in a playful tone.

” rules are meant to be broken officer Judy. You have to learn to enjoy life more than only work and follow rules. If you still keep this type of attitude it will be hard for you to get married in the future ” ( officer ross)

” my personal life and work are two different things. Please stop always mentioning my personal life and you are also single till now so before giving others advice why not follow it first? ” ( officer Judy)

Officer ross becomes speechless at Judys reply and put out the cigarette in the ashtray.

” why poke where it hurts. You are no fun. ” ( officer ross)

” did you find anything after questioning all these victims or do you suspect anyone? ” (officer Judy)

” All these peoples are clear but I find someone interesting. The one just left from here. ” (officer ross)

” Is there anything special about that boy? He only has rank potential and luckily get admitted at the dawn academy rather than that I did not see anything special about him ” (officer Judy)

” Sometimes talent or potential does not decide the future of the person. Some are born to break the limits and explore the unknown. I see the spark in that boy and his future will be anything but ordinary thats for sure. ” ( officer ross)

Judy gets surprised at the high evaluation of officer ross but quickly ignores it as it does not matter to her if that person fails or succeeds.

***

After leaving the interrogation room I was guided to another room where all the other people before me came. I sit down on the empty chair.

Some asked me how things had gone or do they tell me anything else like when we can go home or leave the hospital.

I replied that I have no idea and others soon lost interest and started doing their stuff or talking between themselves to pass time.

After some minutes no other person entered after me. I looked at my watch to look at some books and other useful information.

After some more boring waiting, finally, someone opened the door and a beautiful woman in a guard uniform entered the room.

She has a pretty face and a perfect body ratio. Her hair is black and has black eyes too. I bet she is the most beautiful woman I have seen till now.

Her face has that cold and indifferent look that gives her a unique charm. She scanned the room with her eyes and speak to us in a flat tone.

” Hello, my name is officer Judy. Thank you for your corporation till now. All of you are free to go back now. We may call you again if the situation demands so try to stay in contact and best not to leave the city without informing us. if anyone has anything else to say or has any doubts they can ask me. I am standing just outside the room. If you have nothing to say then you can leave the hospital. ” ( officer Judy)

Saying this officer Judy left the room and soon many people get up and started to leave the room. Some people who lived in other cities go to officer Judy to ask for instructions.

I also get up and left the room. After taking the elevator I get to the ground floor of the hospital and take a taxi to my apartment.

In some minutes I arrived at my apartment. I paid the fees and get into my flat.

The first thing I did is to lay down on the sofa in the hall. Man, I am exhausted. That interrogation was no joke. Officer Ross put me under a lot of pressure.

I was able to make it out somehow but I do not think I am free now. They may monitor me for some days so for a few days stay in the apartment and quietly build up power.

I set a goal to reach rank in a week or 2. I have other plans too but they have to wait till I reach the peak of rank.

After spending some more time on the sofa I get up and changed my clothes for training.

I come into the training room and did some warm-ups for some minutes. After that, I asked the system the question I was holding since yesterday.

system how can I use the skill points? (David)

[ Ding]

[ host can see the plus button after the skills. By selecting it host know how many skill points need to raise the level of skill. After confirming the choice host can instantly see the results.]

A simple answer. Lets see how much it costs to raise my basic footwork and martial arts skills.

=======

Basic footwork ( master) (+)

Basic martial arts ( master) (+)

=======

I mentally selected + sigh and a message pops up.

[ would you like to use 1 skill point to raise the basic footwork to perfection? Yes/no]

[would you like to use 1 skill point to raise the basic martial arts to perfection? Yes/no]

Does it cost 1 skill point to raise the sub-level of basic skills or it depends upon the skill itself? Lets try intermediate skills.

==========

Intermediate swordsmanship (beginner) (+)

Intermediate herb gathering ( expert) (+)

============

I selected the + sign on intermediate sword art and herb gathering. Again a message popped out to show the results.

[ would you like to use 2 skill points to raise intermediate swordsmanship to the elite level? Yes/no]

[ would you like to use 4 skill points to raise the intermediate herb gathering to the master level? Yes/no]

system why the points required by herb gathering more than swordsmanship when both of them are intermediate skills? ( David)

[Ding]

[ points required to raise the level of the professional skills is double that of combat-related skills.]

I decided not to use any skill points now as I am about to get perfection in both basic footwork and martial arts. I will try to learn intermediate skills of them on my own.

I will also try to raise the swordsmanship level by myself and if I do not get the desired effect some days later I will use skill points.

Now lets start the training.

***

10 days later.

I am holding a sword and trying to gather all my concentration. After staying still like this for some time I started to swing my sword in a specific manner and slowly but steadily increased the speed of each swing.

As speed gets increases wind cutting sound can be heard as my sword slashed the wind itself due to fast movements. After performing these moves repeatedly for some minutes a notification rang in my head.

[ ding]

[ congratulation your intermediate swordsmanship has reached the elite level. Keep up the good work.]

After reading the message I stopped my practice and sit on the floor to get some rest.

Finally, after days of effort, I raised my swordsmanship to the elite level. Status (David)

==============

I managed to learn all skills to the intermediate level and my swordsmanship to an elite level in 10 days without using skill points. All my stats are increased by a small level and I can become anytime I want.

I also completed the info-gathering quest but have yet to claim the reward. I will do it after I break to rank to have double happiness.

I calmed my breathing and started to run my mana from my core to my body. Mana flowed in every part of the body after that it formed a cycle.

As the speed of the cycle increased the wall around the mana veins also started to expand slowly. They increased by half of their previous size and stopped expanding further.

Mana strengthened the expanded area so the speed and quantity also get increased more than before.

[ Ding]

[ congratulation host has reached rank.]

I opened my eyes and took a deep breath and released it. I repeated this process couple of times.

I clenched my hand and feel the power running through my body. Sadly I did not get any boost in any stat but I can feel I am stronger than before.

Party is not over yet. I opened the system and claimed the reward for the info-gathering quest.

[ info gathering ( completed)

Description – knowing about your surroundings and world can increase your chances of survival by a big margin.

Condition –

read 10 history books. (10/10)

read 10 geographical books. (10/10)

reward – a special skill.

Time limit – 1 month

Punishment – none]

[ding]

[ you have completed the info-gathering quest do you wish to claim the reward? Yes/no]

It was hard to finish reading all those books in 10 days but I somehow managed to pull it off. I selected yes.

[ ding]

[ drawing the reward…..]

[ special skill scan is obtained]

[ scan (EX) – scan any dead object, monsters, and mutants in eyesight to get their information. You can get full information about any dead object regardless of its rank or level. For mutants and monsters, you can see their full information only if they are the same or 1 rank higher than you.

If the target is 3 ranks higher than you then only their name and status will be given. Will not work on any other living beings like humans, elves, demons, and other races.]

[Does the host like to learn this skill? Yes/no]

What an overpowered skill. No way I am not learning this skill. I selected yes and felt something get added to my mana core. Rankers are very sensitive about their core and any tiny difference can not escape their sense.

With this, no treasure can escape my eyes. Now I have reached the peak of rank I need to get some practical experience and the best place for it is in dungeons.

I opened the list of nearest low-level dungeons on my watch. I try to find any dungeon explained or mentioned in the story.

After some searching, I found a rank dungeon. It is the lowest level in rank and the strongest monster here is only level elite.

It is an undead type of dungeon filled with skeletons and ghosts. But nobody knows there is a Boss monster hidden in a special place. There is also some valuable treasure after beating that boss.

In the novel that place finds by the original mc and he also gets those treasures. But this time I want to get it before him.
