The Villainess That Was Once A VRMMO player - CH 68.2
It seemed more than just a rocky hill that had been dug out. The inside of the cave was filled with an unusual amount of magical power, and my MP, which was on the verge of depletion, was quickly recovering.
It didn’t look like a proper pathway, and I didn’t know how long it would take to reach the end, so I decided to leave everything else to Boris from this point on as I went inside.
Now… onward to the end before another round of break. At first, it was a rocky cave, but as I advanced deeper into the cave, where no light could reach, I couldn’t tell where the ceiling and walls were, and I was even unable to tell if the ground I was stepping on was dirt or stone, flat or uneven.
I was in my player character form, so even in a pitch-dark dungeon I should be able to see through the darkness, similar to a view on a night with a full moon, but even with my eyes adapted to the darkness, I could not see what was ahead of me.
That did not mean that the darkness was dense because I could still see my own hands and legs normally, so this passageway was probably not normal.
After a few minutes…or days, in a space where even the sense of time was vague, a world full of light suddenly opened up in front of me.
A colorful mass of steel passed in front of my eyes with great force. Looking up, I saw a narrow, slightly hazy sky between the rows of square towers. Looking around, men and women, young and old, dressed in a variety of clothing, passed by at a brisk pace, paying no attention to others.
Automobiles. Skyscrapers. Businessmen. Students. Asphalt ground…
…I really couldn’t tell. The scene spread out before my eyes was a certain downtown area on Earth, that I used to pass with my few friends on my way home from school.
But, I was not so out of touch with reality that I would say, “Oh, I’ve come back to Earth?”.
The fact that I was dressed as a magical girl attracted no attention, even though the situation was too suspicious. But the question was, what kind of situation was this?
Whether it was just an illusion, or a temporary reflection of a scene on earth, or a thing partially formed on our side, or if these people were even real people in the first place?
I didn’t have enough information…anyway, there was one thing I wanted to try.
“Uncle, one cream taiyaki.”
“Yes, that will be 180 yen!”
I didn’t have their money with me here.
I had no choice. It might be made of some suspicious substance, so it’s dangerous to eat it. Damn.
But at least I knew that we could talk to each other. I wondered if it wasn’t an illusion, or if there was some kind of advanced magic being used…
I could use my physical abilities as they were. I didn’t have the money to take the train, but it didn’t matter because I could travel faster than a train.
…I missed it. As I was walking around aimlessly and eating fried bread from Bag, sprinkling sugar on it, a pigeon came close to me, so I gave it a couple of pieces of bread.
As I walked around and kept looking, I noticed that it was getting dark and that I was right next to my former parents’ house.
I decided to head to my parents’ house to get something from my room while I was at it. Suddenly, the door to my parents’ house opened and my former family members appeared.
Father, mother, brother, sister…they had finally become an ideal family without me, and when they saw me, they smiled broadly and opened their arms as if to embrace me.
The 7th Class Magic [Fire Storm] erupted around me, burning an area of about 100 meters in diameter, completely eradicating both people and buildings.
I was horrified. This was just a bad replica of that world. How could that prick family speak those lines? Even if they were real, I would have done the same thing unintentionally if they said those lines to me.
Noise filled the sky as the scene in front of me burned, causing all the creatures to lose color as they melted and crumbled. Could it be a slime-like magical creature? Perhaps the slime outside was also the one that escaped from this place.
“You’re being awfully flashy, aren’t you? Who are you?”
When the sky, walls, and ceiling disappeared and nothing was present, a voice resounded through the hazy area, revealing a woman’s appearance.
Her hair was pure white and glossy, her skin was translucent white, her eyes were bright red, and her ears were a little longer than those of ordinary elves.
The first high elf I met was a beautiful, slightly luscious lady.
