It was what was expected after that dreadful announcement.

Wails of despair echoed throughout the earth.

World leaders attempted to calm the people to no avail.

Many roared in anger.

Many pleaded for forgiveness.

Many were frozen in shock.

Many fell into the realm called their minds.

Many justified themselves.

Many killed themselves.

They trembled in fear of what was to come.

For they all knew nothing could be done.

Nothing could undo their grave sins.

Death was what awaited them all.

Because nothing could calm Gods Wrath.

He had come down and announced our doom.

”Humans, due to your great sins, I will pass down judgement upon you. You have awakened my wrath, so I shall send my dogs to deal with you for the next 40 years. If little survive, I will erase the remnants from the face of the earth. If the majority survives, I will not erase you from the face of the earth. After this day, your lives may never see the light of day again. ”

His low voice resounded like thunder throughout the earth.

The announcement had being heard by every ear and not one person didn understand.

The light of God had been seen by every eye.

They couldn deny it, God had come down.

But He said dogs, so humans could handle them, right?

God is the most powerful entity.

Imagine the creatures who would be worthy to be called his dogs.

What can dust do?


A few minutes after the announcement, gates started to flood the world.

Monsters much stronger than normal began to leak out of them and to devour humans.

They chased them with speeds considered supernatural.

Therefore, humans could only give up and await their grim fate.

Some monsters looked weird and smaller than a pea but when grouped together with others of its kind, looked as imposing as a large, well armoured army. They ruthlessly tortured the humans, eating them bit by bit until they died. Some were as tall as 50 stacked Goliaths and were well built. They drooled, as if they had seen a delicious meal. Those monsters clearly saw humans as nothing more than fresh meat. The way they brutally mauled and ripped them apart said it all. Our weapons were like a small twig to a bear.

Useless and powerless.

We were only prey.

We could do nothing but wait for death.

Or so we thought.

10 minutes after the announcement of doom, when humans were gifted with a game like system to survive. We had the opportunity to get stronger by leveling up. We each had our own unique skill and a class. Some were swordsmen, some were healers or something other. The skills they gained were in accordance to those classes. But most importantly, we now had hope.

Humanity wasn completely doomed.

At the date shown above, humanity had finally adjusted to the monsters. They made sure that areas with were inhabited. Hunters were deployed to kill monsters and inspired many to do the same.

Including me.

10 years and 2 days after the announcement, I was born. At the time shown above, I was 17 and had just awakened the system. Usually, people who were 18 and over awakened it, so I thought I might have awakened a special class. Will I be a magician or swordsman? I hope I awakened a powerful skill or class, I told myself as I opened my status screen.

Name: Abe Reina

Age: 17

Class: Rune Apprentice

Strength: 5

Agility: 8

Stamina: 7

Luck: N/A

Charisma: 15 (Animals), 5 (Humans)

Intelligence: 9

Dexterity: 11

Perception: N/A

MP: 10/10

HP: 30/30

Skill: [Rune Encyclopaedia]

My stats excluding dexterity and my charisma with animals were average for humans. And my class? Those with classes involving runes were often factory workers who spent their days drawing symbols in the rune language on various weapons.


Mana: Source of magic. It resides in the soul.

10 is the maximum for human stats (without level up)

The rune language is basically manas language. If edged on an item, it can do a particular purpose. For example, if fireball in the rune language was carved on something and mana was transferred in it, a fireball would be launched on the designated target. Those with rune classes are usually given a book along with the system. The book contains everything you need know about runes.

End Of Note.

As you can tell, I didn have luck when it came to my class. If my MP was at 90 – 100 (average) this class could be used for hunting. My mana was just enough to affect insects. But I was a positive person that always looked on the bright side. My unique skill was the bright side.


My unique skill [Rune Encyclopaedia] allows me to know all the history and information there is about the language [if activated]. That meant that the book would be useless to me. I could use this to become a high ranking historian, I thought. Maybe even an inventor!


September 14th 2060, 21:28 (Japan)

I was soon disillusioned.

As soon as I share my discoveries, a high ranking hunter was immediately credited for it.

The inventions I made were dismissed.

By the time I reached 20, I knew why.

I was weak.

And this world, nobody would believe a weakling.

Intelligence didn matter anymore.

Only strength, strength and more strength did.

I had no choice but to accept my fate.

I was meant to be a factory worker, nothing more.

At least I had my bug friends at home.

Since I was little, Ive always being good with animals, especially insects. raised several types of insects over the past 20 years. They understand me and I understand them. For that reason, we always got along. I spend my time after work to care for my various bug friends. I studied them and found ways to increase their lifespan. Theyd follow me around and do as the were told, a little bit like trained house dogs. Though they weren human, it felt like I had many people to come home to.

That was until the time shown above.

I was 27 at the time and had heard of and been near to several monster attacks. However, I was never victim to one myself until that day.

The small cozy home my father had made for me in the woods (a safe area).

Had been engulfed in flames.

My friends.

My only family.

Had been mercilessly slain.

Not a single one remained.

Everything I cared for…

Was gone.

The worst thing to come home to after work.

And the one responsible for this massacre?

That dragon flew without a care in the world!

My blood boiled furiously.

My heart ingurgitated on it like a drunkard would on wine.

My eyes poured out many waterfalls.

My lips were nothing more that chew toy for my teeth.

My knees had been turned to broken down pudding.

They soon had a meeting with the grass as I took in my blurry surroundings.


It was all fire.

It was what made my soul cry out.


Why me?

What I have done?

What did they do?

Why couldn I stop this?

Those questions rang in my mind.

Rage consumed me.

I was enraged with that dragon for destroying all I cared for.

I was enraged that the fire ate up my home.

Most of all, I was enraged that I couldn do anything about it.

Why not me?

I thought.

Then I realised that the fire would reach them anyway, since they always stayed at home.

If only I had magic, if I was stronger.

I lamented at my lack of strength.

Because of it, Id lost everything.

As looked at the seemingly eternal fire, I made a promise.

I, Abe Meira, will survive and protect whatever becomes precious to me!

What happened today, will never happen again.
