"So…" Zach kicked the stone near him and asked, "Why are we walking again?"
"The carriage was too expensive, and it wouldn't have made much difference in the end anyway," Aurora replied.
"Why do you sound like me?" Zach muttered under his breath and glanced at Aurora from the corner of his eyes.
"Plus, you were the one who said we should gather information. So if we stop by towns and meet other players in between, we might get some valuable information," Aurora added.
"Yeah, I doubt that," Zach snorted. "It seems I overestimated the players. I assumed that if they were able to ascend before us, they would be smart, but I guess humans are humans in the end. Their standards are different. What's worse is that they don't believe in sociality now, so obviously, they won't exchange information or try to form a unity."
Aurora squinted her eyes and said, "Why are you speaking like you are any different?"
"Excuse me?" Zach furrowed his brows and said, "Don't lump me with those idiots. I am superior to them."
"Then what about me?" Aurora asked in a meek manner.
Aurora's face flushed as she repeated, "And I also one of those idiots?"
"Hmm~" Zach hummed in wonder and pondered for a while before answering, "Is that even a question?"
Zach scoffed out loud and said, "You are the biggest idiot I have ever met."
After saying that, Zach started running because he knew Aurora would chase after him.
Aurora's face twitched, and she started chasing Zach as Zach had predicted. Fortunately for Aurora, Zach couldn't run faster because they had reached the gates of the town.
It has been 8 hours since they started their journey, so they decided to drop by the town and eat something before resuming their travel.
They entered the town and quickly made their way to the nearby restaurant.
Zach shot a short glance at Aurora and saw her pouting at him.
'Why is she so cute?!' Zach asked himself. 'If you react like that, it's only going to make me tease you more.'
They reached the restaurant and ordered the same food.
"Why did you call me an idiot?" Aurora asked with her cheeks still puffed.
"You sacrificed your pleasure for a stupid thing. If that doesn't make you an idiot, then I don't know what does," Zach commented.
"What do you mean?" Aurora asked with a puzzled look on her face, as though she couldn't understand what Zach was trying to say.
"I am talking about that stupid promise of yours. You sacrificed your crepes. And that was idiocy," Zach commented without holding back.
"It's not idiocy; it's love," Aurora muttered under her breath. She thought Zach wouldn't be able to hear her, but Zach heard it clear and crisp.
Zach nearly choked on his food but barely managed to not show his reaction.
'She got me there.'
After eating food, they left the restaurant and talked with the players, who looked friendly. Zach wanted to avoid unwanted drama, so he was saying lowkey and hiding his true strength.
He didn't want recognition from other players. As long as he knew he was strong, he was satisfied. Especially, when they were in a game like Gods' impact. The final rewards were tempting, and they could make any saint a devil.
Zach knew that if other players were aware of his true strength, they could ask to join his party or travel with him. The guilds might recruit him to use him as a tool.
"So, what should we do now?" Aurora asked.
"It's nearly evening, but there is still a lot of time left before night," Zach replied. "How far is the next town?"
"We have to pass two more towns to reach the capital. It is… the estimated time says it would take us 10 hours to reach the capital."
"I asked about the nearest town."
"Yeah, I know. I am just… it would take us 5 hours," Aurora replied.
"Perfect!" Zach placed his hand on Aurora's shoulder and gave her a soft push after saying, "We can reach there by night."
"Can't we stay the night here?" Aurora let out a weary sigh.
"You were the one who wanted to travel by foot," Zach remarked. "Now start walking."
"Or do you want me to carry you in my arms?" Zach asked with a smirk on his face.
"I will walk!"
After traveling for five more hours, they reached the next town. It was already night, so they decided to head to the inn.
The inn had a tavern on the ground floor and lodging on the upper floors.
When they were eating dinner, Zach suddenly asked, "What are your current quests?"
"One is to reach level 25," Aurora answered.
"I have the same one. What are the others?" Zach asked curiously.
"Second is to slay a level 80 monster."
"... interesting. I have the same one."
"Third one is to equip a mythical grade weapon."
"Oh?!" Zach immediately conjured his cursed dagger, which was mythical rank, and handed it to Aurora. "Here. This is a mythical rank."
Aurora raised his brows in confusion and said, "It doesn't work like that."
"What do you mean?" I used your gold rank sword to complete my quest, didn't I?"
"Yes. But different rank weapons have different rules. You can't exchange or use mythical rank or higher grade weapons to anyone like that," Aurora explained.
'I see. So it's similar to potions?' Zach knitted his brows and said, "What does it say when you try to equip it?"
"There is no option to equip it."
"But… you are technically holding it…?" Zach's knowledge of gaming was completely shattered.
"Yes. But I can't use it. Even if I stab someone with it, it will have close to zero damage."
After eating dinner, Aurora went to pay the bill while Zach waited for her to return.
"Hey, did you hear the rumor?" the party members sitting at the next table whispered to each other.
"There is a secret boss in this town, and if you defeat it, you get a mythical rank sword."
Zach's interest piqued after hearing that.
'This is a good opportunity to gift that sword to Aurora.'
