POOR DRAGON

Episode 2. Awakening

One day, Earths inhabitants were forcibly summoned to a foreign world without warning. While they were naturally bewildered by this sudden development, the inhabitants of the foreign world, as if expecting the situation, gathered them all together and herded them into a decrepit fortress. Kim Seon-Hyeok was one of these people from Earth.

”Welcome to the Kingdom of Adenburg, foreigners. ”

An inhabitant of this new world who claimed to be an administrator of the kingdom explained that the current situation was the result of a phenomenon called ”mass summoning ” and that it had occurred several times in the past.

”Our kingdom will be happy to support you. However, you must first prove your worth. ”

After maybe three days of being trapped in this dirty fortress, a person who claimed to be the king appeared with this declaration, and the foreigners, recognizing their inability to protect themselves, decided to rely on the kingdom for support.

In return, the kingdom proposed that each individual serve the royal family for a certain period of time. The duration of servitude would be reduced in accordance with the service provided.

”For you, who came into this world through the mass summoning, it will not be difficult to prove your ability. We will help you do so. ”

And with that, they were suddenly enlisted into military service, without the time to even wonder how this mindless training would help them prove their worth. The new recruits wielded blades for the first time in their lives, rolled around in the mud, and worked their bodies to the limit.

”You might be cursing us now. You may not yet understand why we are putting you through this arduous training, but soon, you will be able to reap the glorious fruits of your efforts. ”

At first, the recruits had to struggle without understanding what these words meant. But then, at some point, the instructors words became clear.

Paa!

One of the foreigners crawling around in the mud became swallowed by a strange light.

”Congratulations on your class change. ”

At that moment, even the instructor, who had worked and screamed at the recruits like a demon, offered his congratulations with a satisfied expression. It was then that Kim Seon-Hyeok understood what it meant to escape this cursed fortress.

High. Middle. Low.

The instructor classified the man as middle-tier. Having thrown off the rag-like clothes he had worn until now, the mans new clothes might not have been stylish, but was nonetheless flashier and absent of all traces of his former impoverished appearance. It was not only his clothes that changed.

According to rumors, the man was awarded the title of a minor noble and would be working for the kingdom from that moment on. His situation in this foreign world had completely changed.

Nobles were considered to be the pinnacle of this unfair world, and the fact that a fellow foreigner was able to rise to that position became a great motivation for his former peers.

The atmosphere around these foreigners, who reluctantly trained and endured daily, changed when the news that the man was awarded the title of a knight started to spread.

”Our kingdom is generous. Those who prove their worth will receive appropriate rewards. ”

The instructors encouraged them, and the foreigners became increasingly engaged in their training.

”Are you a low-tier? In any case, congratulations on your awakening. ”

”Congratulations on your awakening. ”

”Oh! Congratulations. You are a middle-tier as well. ”

As a result, countless foreigners experienced the phenomenon known as awakening or class change and left the fortress. Middle-tier and low-tier, the ranks might have differed, but all who went through it escaped the hellish fortress the same.

”What is your new class? ”

”M, mage, sir. ”

”Oh! Finally, its a high-tier! What great news for the kingdom! ”

And like that, the woman who became a mage was the first to be classified as high tier. She left the fortress receiving treatment incomparable to the middle- and low-tier people who preceded her.

Ah, if only I could awaken as a high-tier…

Given that they were stuck in this world, wouldn it be nice to rise to as high a position as possible and live an extravagant life without having to care for their needs? Excitement began to fill the peoples eyes.

Kim Seon-Hyeok was the same. He waited patiently for his time to come while watching his peers awaken one after another. And finally, that moment arrived.

Paa!

Experiencing an exuberance and satisfaction he had never felt before in his life, Kim Seon-Hyeok was unable to focus for a while from the ecstasy reminiscent of walking on clouds.

”Whats that. Isn this even crazier than the time that woman became a mage? ”

”Isn this at least high-tier? ”

Witnessing the light of awakening that was more brilliant than ever before, the foreigners began whispering among themselves. They looked on at Kim Seon-Hyeok with jealousy and envy, and the instructor likewise could not hide his feeling of anticipation.

”Congratulations on your awakening. What is your new class? ”

Finally regaining consciousness, Kim Seon-Hyeok opened his status window and checked like all those who awakened before him.

[Kim Seon-Hyeok]

– Level. 1

– Dragon Rider

– Strength 17 / Stamina 16 / Agility 19

– Possessed Skills

o Dragon Taming

o Dragon Riding

o Charging

Kim Seon-Hyeok was encouraged after seeing that his new title was not merely a rider or knight, but a dragon rider. Just from the name, it was clearly an amazing class.

”D, dragon rider, sir! ”

”Dragon rider? Whats that? ”

The instructors expression became unreadable. It bothered him, but Kim Seon-Hyeok held onto his expectations. After all, those who had obtained a unique-sounding class before him had all left the fortress being classified as high-tier.

”Just like it says, I believe it means someone who rides dragons? ”

The foreigners outwardly showed their envy upon hearing his explanation. To Kim Seon-Hyeok, it certainly felt like he had hit the jackpot. However, the instructors expression remained inscrutable.

”Dragons? You can ride dragons? ”

”Yes… ”

At this point, Kim Seon-Hyeok, who had been filled with joy, also recognized that something was strange. The instructor wore a complicated expression. The emotion that the instructor conveyed the most was…

”Ugh. I thought it would be another high-tier after all this time… ”

It was disappointment.

”Isn this good? ”

At Kim Seon-Hyeoks dazed response, the instructor replied.

”It probably would have been. That is, if there were dragons in this world. ”
