Chapter 4:

Trial 1: The Gathering

World trial


[Trial has ended]

[You have passed the trial] 

[Your level has risen from 0 to 1]

It ended I closed my eyes for a moment and the next moment I opened and found myself back in the room

"was it just a dream. It's still the same time"

"no way it was to vivid "

"Rei.... "

"Your.. Dad..... "

A loud shocked voice slowly going mute came from downstairs. I went downstairs only to find my mother sitting shocked as if she had seen a ghost in the drawing room with the phone on the table still connected to the call. 

"What happened? "

"What happened mom? "

In a shocked and depressed voice my mom said

"I got a call from the police station!"

"Your dad.... dad..... dad died in an accident "

"An accident!! "

I shouted in a surprised voice although I wasn't  shocked since I myself killed him. It was surprising to hear that he died in an accident. 

"a car hit your father while he was walking back even the driver died"

I slowly calmed my mother while not showing any signs ťowards suspension. I acted like a responsible son from some soap opera who when hears the news of his dad's death takes care of his family. 

Few days passed my father's funeral was held. My mother had a hard time facing reality. I took leave from school to help my mother who was emotionally unstable, my relatives, and the insurance companies .Our family mainly consisted of me, my dad and mom. Kei who knew me from childhood was almost like an own daughter to my family. She also helped me and my mom during this time. 

There was no information  about the trial as if it never existed .I started school again and one month passed without any events. 

Until one-day when I went to sleep 


[The gathering will now commence]

[We have now arrived at the subspace for group T5]

I opened my eyes. There was a round table in front of me and four chairs other than mine. All the chairs had a person seated on it .The people on the chair was not visible and appeared black though you could make out there was a person sitting there. The table was red table grandly decorated with golden lining.

A cylindrical blue screen same as the one in the cube room from the qualification appeared. There were 5 columns with content in each which read as..

[Hanazawa Kei power:NECROMANCY]

The black shadow upon the people on the chair was lifted and the person right opposite to me was a girl with long black hair like silk, Snow White skin, gave of an overwhelming aura was none other than my girlfriend Kei.

"Kei ,what are you doing here"I asked in a surprised manner. 

"Rei, you are here too",she replied in a shocked tone. 

"Don't tell me even.... "

"Man my ears and my eyes are bleeding looking at you people "

The person who said that was Yamato Run. She was dressed like a gyaru,had her hair dyed pink and yellow, was tanned and had unbuttoned her top 2 buttons. 

"Man I was in middle of playing a game"

"Tchh, It was a rush hour in the cafe "

Other voices started pouring in. Just when  the 'Voice' said
