Chapter 61.1 – Library of the white witches
I could smell a familiar stale scent of a mold permeated in the air.
“Is this really my imaginary world?”
This library was a manifestation of a skill inside my mind. And as I looked around at the incredibly vivid library with curiosity, I received a message from the system
[The letters of all witches of the world gathered together to become a book, and the books gathered together to become a knowledge.]
[Welcome to the library of the white witches. A library made from the wisdom of witches all over the world.]
[Your current entry permit is ‘F’ and more qualifications are required to unlock the next level permit.]
[Please find the knowledge you want here.]
Even though the library had become more vivid and clear, there were still restrictions around me. I had an F-rank entry permit.
If I forced my way into the E-rank library, I would be affected by the witch both physically and mentally.
However, one of the reasons why I entered this library in the first place was for the E-rank library.
I summoned the flower pot as soon as I heard its voice. A beautiful silver flower in a pot appeared on top of my left hand. Few moments later, a little girl showed up from the largest flower bud. She yawned and stretched her body before looking at me.
-I love library~
I walked to the place I saw the other day but couldn’t approach. It was the door connecting the E-rank library.
I gulped down and placed my hand on the handle. Then, I remembered the warning message that came the other day. It was about being physically and mentally influenced by the witches. But I didn’t have any shred of hesitation left because I had taken all that into consideration.
Rows after rows of bookshelves, which looked like any normal bookshelves came to my sight. I slowly and warily walked toward the room.
Then… dozens, hundreds, thousands and tens of thousands voices suddenly rang across the room.
-Please save me, I’ve already admitted it was my fault! Why did you kill me?
-How could you shamelessly say you want to go back?
-You must die so you could be a help like us!
-You’re going to be books, just like us!
[Skill ‘Concentration (S)’ has been activated.]
With the help of concentration skill, all of those voices instantly disappeared.
“What was that?”
They were terrible voices filled with grudge. I’ve lived my life looking at all sorts of things in the battlefield, but I’ve never come across anything like this before.
Somehow I felt chills run down my spine. It was as if I was watching a horror movie alone, or more, like I was left alone in a haunted house.
If it wasn’t for the pot’s voice, I would have probably already run away from this room. There wouldn’t be a shred of the persona of a 16 years veteran hunter seen in me at that moment.
“You are right, let’s go. It’ll be okay.”
It was a dim path between the rows of bookshelves. There were numerous books lined up without any title written on its cover. It took me almost an hour to walk to the last bookshelf while looking through the books slowly.
Does the time flow at the same pace as the reality? As this world was sustained by using the ‘concentration’ skill, it was likely that the time of reality would be almost stopped.
As I walked around, I suddenly realized… All the bookshelves in this room were surrounding me.
‘When did this happen?’
In an instance, I took out the ether blade and turned it on. The flower pot who had always been assisting me from the inventory was now sitting on top of my left hand. In this state, she was able to exert more powerful magic spells.
I would love to test her strength, but suddenly, every single book in the bookshelves flew into the sky and began to merge. The combined book turned into the size of a building and started falling in front of me.
[E-Rank library and above was only accessible for true witches.]
[Or those who deserve to be a witch.]
[Are you a witch? If you aren’t a witch, do you think you have the qualification to be one?]
“I’m neither. I’ll just go in.”
[Then take the test.]
[The content is simple.]
[I’m a witch system that manages access to the E-rank Warehouse]
[Beat me, and you shall pass.]
The cover of the building-size book in front of me began to change. A pattern started to appear before me just before the title was engraved
Those questions only lasted for a very brief moment.
The huge room opened up. A white-haired woman in a white dress walked out from it. Even though I had never seen her before, I felt the same energy I had felt from the witches on her. Behind her, the pages of the huge book finally stopped.
[The shepherd boy.]
As soon as the pages stopped, I could feel the space around me starting to distort. I could feel a similar sensation from when I jumped across dimension.
With the cold breeze that blew over me, I found myself on a vast grassland. Some distance away from me, there was a young boy hitting a huge sheep monster several times bigger than himself. Behind him, there were dozens of wolves following him.
“Wait a minute, was the shepherd boy supposed to be like that?”
Without any warning, the boy shouted.
-Wolf! Go bite him!
Following his commands, dozens of wolves started running towards me. The flower pot assisted me with some wind magic as I wrapped my mana around the ether blade.
‘I don’t know what this is all about, but if I beat her, I’m sure everything will be okay!’
Suddenly the world shook, and my body sank to the ground.
No. To be exact, the earth shot up towards me.
“What the hell is this!?”
I swung my ether blade towards the wolves. These wolf monsters level was around E-rank. So I thought killing them would be easy. But suddenly, the snow fell from the sky and within seconds the snow was already piled up to my knee.
[Dog of Flanders.]
The Book title changed. All the wolves were frozen to death and the sheep went on a rampage.
A group of rampaging sheep monsters with ‘王’ characters carved on their belly rushed at me.
I clenched my teeth as I rolled away to evade the Monster sheep’s fist. Its level was about D-rank. It was a level higher than the wolf, but there was nothing particularly special about it.
I jumped and cut off one of the sheep’s necks. After that, I landed behind it and rolled away. Using the momentum from the roll, I leaped towards another monster and stabbed it on the chest.
Two sheeps rushed toward me from both sides with their fists clenched. They swung their fist in order to crush me. Thankfully, the pot had already created a foothold for me with her magic. I kicked the foothold and flew high into the sky.
I ran my eyes over the ground quickly. I saw a flock of hundreds of sheep galloping over the snowy fields. I couldn’t handle their numbers no matter what method I decided to use.
‘If so, I’d rather…..’
The very moment I was about to take some explosives out of my inventory and throw them to the ground, the snow hail stopped and I found myself in a forest.
“What is happening?”
Then, an old woman appeared. No… it wasn’t a person, it was something that looked like an old woman.
-You should try some apples.
The old woman offered me an apple, but I thought it would be poisoned, so I moved bacl and killed her with the ether blade.
-Bad bastard! Eat it!
She threw the apple towards me.
I hurriedly rolled to the side. There was an explosion at the spot where the apple landed. It had the same effect as the ether grenades that I used.
I was far away from the bomb. I quickly got up and cut down the old woman.
The surrounding area changed into a medieval-style fortress. The fortress was filled with a huge ‘nutcracker’ that easily reached 5 meters tall.
-Oh it’s a walnut! Cut that man’s butt off!!
“Oh, N, Noooo.”
Our editor was swamped with uni works and hopefully it will ends this week. We are very sorry for the delay….
