Chapter 31:

Aito’s gift! – Chapter 31

Summoned as a Ghost in another world


“Wa-wa-what is that?!” From Aya’s perspective that guy seemed like a weird looking ghost, but if my guess is correct then that's a...

“A hologram right? I never thought I could invent such a thing in this world!”

While Aya was a bit confused, she looked at me trying to see if that guy was a ghost just like me. This world only has magic, and based on Aya’s reaction, she has never seen a hologram before. But even back in my world, holograms were not this advanced. As I continued listening to that guy, I rubbed Aya’s head to let her know that everything was okay.

“Well, where do I begin, hmm… Right!

First of all, congratulations on completing my dungeon. I really wish I was there to see you beat all the levels of this dungeon, but something must have happened to me if you are watching this video right now.” This guy must be Aito, the guy who got transported into this world and created his own dungeon.

“My days here in this dungeon were very special, but unfortunately I barely got anyone to actually fully explore it. That's why I made it impossible to finish for anyone who entered.

That was unless---”

--Unless it was someone who held knowledge from a modern world.

“-Someone who understands how to use a computer.

I know, I know... You might be wondering why I did something like this when I could have maken this into a more simple dungeon for the people of this world as well?

Well, my answer is simple…” From a cheerful guy, Aito’s expression became a little serious and sad at the same time.

“People from this world couldn't understand my way of thinking nor did they want to experience how a person from a modern world can spend the day. I don't blame them though since this is another world and the same concept doesn't apply here just like Earth.

That's why I made this kind of level so someone could at least remember me. Not as a known adventurer, but as Aito Suzuki, a Japanese guy who used to live here…” Aito stopped talking for a bit, then took a deep breath before looking back at the camera of his hologram.

“Haaa! Now that is out of my mind, I wanted to give something special since you are the very first person to clear this dungeon.

It's not that much but I hope the gift will help you in your adventures, and who knows maybe you can make this place a better place.

This video will end now, I give you my thanks…

From Aito Suzuki.”

That's where the hologram disappeared, leaving behind a glowing circle underneath us. Is this a magic circle? I think Aito mentioned something about leaving a gift behind. Is this glowing circle meant to do something?

Suddenly, another game-like screen appeared in front of me with the following content.

So this is what Aito meant by saying he was going to give us a special gift, and of course only a fool wouldn't accept this kind of gift.

Yes, I accept.

Since I couldn't touch the screen I tried controlling its options by thinking about it.

All of these transparent screens continuously appeared one after another which made it a bit hard for me to read them fast enough. But now that everything stopped at the last screen, I tried checking it out to see what it was about. A new evolution is available?

Most of the evolutions means that the skill can transform into a better skill so accepting it might not be that bad.

I hope…

All of the screens disappeared some seconds after “Hollow Voice '' evolved. I got a lot of new skills from that, even one of my skills evolved thanks to that.

“I wonder what kind of skill I got.” I accidentally thought out loud after getting a little excited about it.

Shit! I didn't mean to talk! Now Aya will freak out because of my voice!

“Huh?”

“Huh?” But somehow Aya was okay and she didn't seem to be affected at all by my voice…
