A Journey That Changed The World.

Chapter 4 Goodbye For Now.



Archer slammed the door closed when they entered, still holding her hand. Looking at her face he noticed it was red as an apple.

He smiled. ''Sorry about that, I didn't like him looking at you like that.''

As she heard him speak, Ella smiled. ''That's okay, I like this new side of you to be honest.''

She got a worried look on her face before asking. ''But what will you do Arch?''T/his chapter is updat𝓮d by n𝒐v(ê(l)biin.co/m

Thinking for a second. ''I read about the adventurer's guild allows people to become adventurers at 13, so I think I'll become one and earn coin that way.''

Archer rubs his chin before speaking.

''I can't stay here and put up with my father's shit any longer, yes I lost the fight, but that was just an excuse for him to throw me out.''

He suddenly got a brilliant idea.

''Hey Ella, can you fight?''

Tilting her head before quickly nodding.

''Yes, my mother and father taught me archery and earth magic before we came to the Avalon Empire.''

He smiled as he heard her response.

''Then why don't you come with me, we can become adventurers, explore this world together while discovering the unknown.''

After hearing Archer's offer, she looked sad.

''Arch I cant, my mother signed a work contract, and it runs out when I turn 15, so we have to continue working for two years''

He got a sad look on his face at the thought of separating from her.

The original Archer liked her a lot, when their souls became one the same feelings were passed onto the him.

She smiled.

''But if you still want me to, when I turn 15, I can come with you''

Ella had a hopeful look on her cute face as she really wanted go with him.

If she left with him now her mother could get into trouble.

Archer was annoyed at first but cheered up when he heard her speak.

''Yes that's perfect, when you're 15 I'll get you signed up as an adventurer and we can explore together, however, while you're here, you should study hard before I return for you.''

She nodded before getting ready to leave.

''I will, I promise you, I'll come see you in the morning before you leave.''

''Goodnight Arch.''

Ella left the room as Archer stood there staring at the door.

He sat down at the table and reviewed all the spells and skills he had learned earlier.

[Spell Creation]

[Mana Regeneration]

[Void Blast]

[Cosmic Shield]

[Cosmic Sword]

[Body Enhancement]

'Void blast and cosmic sword are my attack spells, Cosmic Shield is my defense spell, while body enhancement is my support spell.

He selected body enhancement.

[Body Enhancement: uses mana to power any part of the body]

Archer selected Spell Creation next.

[Spell Creation: Can create one new spell per rank]

Archer stared at the screen in front of him and decided he wanted to create something that he remembers appearing in a lot of the web novels he read.

[Spell Creation activated]

Nothing happened while he sat at the table, until he heard a click.

[Item Box skill created]

[Spell Creation: Cool-down activated until user ranks up]

He started relaxing after creating a skill that will be useful for years to come.

'Item Box.'

[Item Box: A skill that allows the user to store items in a pocket dimension that only the user has access to, and grows larger as the user levels up]

''Very useful''

Archer gets up and decides to do a workout before getting into bed.

100 sit-ups, 100 push-ups, and 100 squats.

After finishing working out, he didn't feel satisfied, so he repeated it 3 more times.

Leaving him out of breath, his new body was not ready to work out, so he was aching badly.

His memories reminded him of how the previous Archer was a bookworm who rarely came outside the library.

After all the exercise, Archer crawled into bed, sore and tired.

Falling into a deep sleep.

''ARCHER!''

He opened his eyes as he heard someone screaming his name.

''Alexa?''

That's when he realized he was in a dream.

He was standing about 10 meters from a scene he never wanted to see again.

His eyes were fixed on that crazy stalker Noah stabbing him.

Noah was saying something but Archer couldn't hear anything, he could only read his lips.

'Only mine, Only mine.'

When the attack happened he didn't pay attention to what Noah was saying.

He only paid attention to the excruciating pain he felt, but witnessing it in the third person was a completely different experience.

Archer's own blood splattered everything and everyone around him. Alexa's screams and Noah's manic smile, seeing and hearing all this broke his mind.

When he woke up earlier today he was too distracted to think about the attack.

It was only after he fell asleep that memories returned.

Archer woke up panicking while looking around, remembering where he was.

He tried to relax, but couldn't.

Getting out of bed he stumbled over to the window and opened it.

The sun hadn't yet risen, but the breeze blew against his skin felt relaxing.

Archer's mind reeled, the nightmare messed with him, he doesn't know what, but something has started to change.

But ignoring all the chaotic thoughts plaguing his mind, Archer jumps up on the window ledge and sat down as he watched the city.

A few birds flew past his window as he stretched his arms above his head as he watched the city.

It was lively at this time in the morning.

There were numerous carriages in the plaza near Vassia's castle, he saw people walking here and there.

A market was getting set up, as people were walking to and from work or adventurers taking quests while heading out of the city.

After a while, Archer got off the ledge when he calmed down.

He put on a new shirt and pants while throwing the rest of his stuff into his Item box along with the knife he had.

He only had five pairs of black shirts and pants.

That's all the Ashguards gave him since the incident.

The clothes felt like they were made from linen when he put them on.

As he finished getting ready he heard a knock on the door.

''Come in!''

The door opened and Archer sees Ella walking in, but she looked lost in thought.

''Morning Arch, I brought you some food before you leave.''

She put a tray on the table with bacon and eggs heaped on it.

Archer walked over to the table and sat down to eat.

Looking at her as he stuffed his face with the delicious breakfast and wondered what was wrong with the girl.

''What's wrong, Ella, You seem lost in thought.''

She shook her head before speaking.

''Arch, we won't see each other for years, but could you please try to write to me, I asked Butler Calluric if I can send letters to you through the guild, and he said they can.''

She looked embarrassed until Archer reassured her.

''It's okay Ella, I was going to write to you anyway, so don't worry, plus I'll even come to visit you as much as I can''

He finished the food and stood up, and quickly moved in front of her.

That's when the scent of lavender hit his nose, which he loved.

'Smells beautiful.'

Archer pondered inwardly as he looked into her sky-blue eyes.

''Wanna walk to the gate with me?''

Ella nodded her head with a small smile as they both left the room, heading for the castle's gate.

When they were getting close to the exit, a sarcastic voice came from behind them.

''The weak don't belong here, I can't believe I gave birth to someone like you, you bring shame to all the dragon-kin race.''

A tall woman with black hair, pointy ears like Archer's, and blue eyes, with a pair of black horns coming from above her ears.

It was his mother Larka Ashguard, she was staring at him with a dirty look.

'I promise one day to prove you wrong and make you regret the way you've treated me.'

He turned away ignoring his mother's horrible comment and made his way out of the castle.

10 minutes later they arrived at the castle entrance, the two children came to a stop.

Archer faced her, he shocked Ella by hugging her and whispering something in her ear that made her cheeks turn tomato red and her heartbeat racing.

''Goodbye, for now, my beautiful Ella, I will see you soon''

He pulled away and started turning to leave.

She hesitated a little before running up to him and quickly pecked him on the cheek.

Before bolting away like a scared cat.

He laughed as he watched her run into the castle with bright red ears.

Archer entered the city and saw clean roads paved with smooth white stones.

However, he continued his walk down the street while looking around for the Adventurers Guild.

Having no idea where it was, he looked around and saw a stall selling food.

He walked up to it and asked the man who was cooking.

''Excuse me, where is the guild?''

The man didn't spot Archer until he looked down and laughed.

''Hahaha didn't see you there little man, how can I help you?''

''Do you know where the adventurers guild is?''

He rubbed his chin and pointed to the left.

''Head down that road, turn right when you reach an inn called The Lost Guild Master, then it's two minutes from there.''

After that, he thanked the man and walked off in the direction the man pointed.
