Chapter 11 - Starting The Hustle
Rudra spent a day at his home , enjoying his family time. He loved how his dad will never stop smiling and his mom would act like he was her lovely little boy
His brother looked at him like he was a hero, he was in middle school hence he understood the importance of money and understood that they were rich now.
After he up grew about 10 or 11 years he stopped seeing his brother as his idol and thought that he was lazy and useless. Seeing the shine in his eyes come back as he looked upto him again Rudra felt proud of himself.
Yes your brother is the best!
As he left home to go back to his rented apartment , something weighed on his mind, Earning money was indeed not so easy ..... although he struck gold this time .... from now on it wont be as easy as today
The money he earned is enough to sustain his family's current lifestyle for the next 40 years no problem
They could order food thrice a week
Get a bigger apartment
Go on trips twice a year
Drive better cars
Have a saving for any possible emergency
But that was it.... it was not enough to live the noveou richè lifestyle
Yep he wanted his family to live like emperors....
He needed to earn more for that
much much more.
Well the Human greed knows no bound ....
But it all pointed towards one thing
He needed to go back to grinding.
One day off from 'Omega' he wondered how many players reached the Capital
(Back in the virtual world)
(Purple haze city, Hazelgroove kingdom)
The first thing he heard when he logged in was
"hehehe i levelled up without logging into the game for a day
It can't be called a complete waste this way "
He brought up the stat panel
Player Name : Shakuni
Title : Viscount of Hazelgroove kingdom, Reputable knight
Class : Knight
Subclass : none
Tier : 0
AGI : 21 VIT : 16
INT : 16 STA : 16
PHY : 16 HP : 600/600
Status : Healthy
Equipment : common stone sword , leather boots , Darkness Armour , Lich's Ring , Bronze shins
He nodded seeing his stats
if his calculations are right Neatwit would have reached level 12 yesterday
or maybe 13
He needed to pick up the pace the gap between him and other players was shortening
He needed to keep his edge else he was just one of the players playing the game.
Well he did not know but his name was aldready considered as one of the elite's his name had been announced twice on the server and his information pack was extremely usefull
Many common players looked upto the player 'Shakuni' and many guilds wanted to recruit him within their ranks.
Since he would sell his stack of common and bronze equipment only when the prices were sufficiently high the only thing to do right now was to start the Emmisary of the church Quest.
He walked towards the central District of the capital
The Central District was a city within a city
It was cordoned off with high walls and the right to access was heavily regulated.
You needed to have atleast +50 Reputation from the church of light or the Hazelgroove kingdom to gain access .
He being a viscount was however more than welcome , not that he lacked the fame either.
At the centre of the circle was the Royal palace the residence of the king and nomatter how many times had he seen it in his past life , it was simply not something one could look enough at ... What a magnificent building....The tall gates the strong guards the beautiful gardens... The palace was simply breathtaking.
Right beside it was the Church Of Light.
The pure white marble Building was blinding to look at in the sunlight ,
It was Grand yet simple
Yep definitely the Church of 'Light' he thought
As he entered through the gates of Church Of Light
He saw countless priests in White robes all doing some rituals
He walked through in towards the prayer room
Where he knelt down and prayed infront of the Godess of Light ' Fiona' .
It was impolite to call the Godess's name hence everyone reffered to her as Godess of Light.
He was actually not praying but this was the way to activate the quest soo he acted like he was.
About 5 minutes in when he was still kneeling he finally heard the voice
" May the Light bless you".
The fish had taken the bait..... that voice was of the Cardinal of the Church of Light ' Lee Huntaro'
" I greet the Cardinal of The church Priest Lee "
As he bowed to the Priest the priest tapped his forehead and he recieved a blessing
𝘠𝘰𝘶 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘳𝘦𝘤𝘪𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘉𝘭𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘰𝘧 𝘓𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵
+ 𝘋𝘰𝘶𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘦𝘹𝘱 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘯𝘦𝘹𝘵 3 𝘥𝘢𝘺𝘴.
he exclaimed in his mind
" I see you have great faith in the Godess " Cardinal Lee said
" Naturally , The Godess illuminated the path in my life through the pitch of Darkness i was in, My only regret is not being able to recieve a chance to serve her better"
Cardinal Lee ' s eyes moistened
Rudra knew that he had roped the Cardinal in
Hook . Line . Sinker!
" I am glad sire Viscount wishes to serve the Godess.If you truly wish to do so the Church does have an issue that needs attention of a capable adventurer"
" Seeing as you are a Reputable Knight Blessed by the Godess of Life and hence can resurrect after dying ....would you be willing to take care of an issue? the church will forever be in your debt if you can complete this task"
" Sure , Cardinal Lee you have to but command me
this humble Knight is in your service".
