Night Battle Magical Boy - Chapter 2: Fate is Also Darn Unfair
Chapter 2: Fate is Also Darn Unfair
Fate was actually unfair.
This was another truth that Fang Ran had understood in his life.
Some are born with a golden spoon in their mouth, some are born to live in the poor mountainous regions with no financial support. There are many other circumstances, such as some are born good-looking, some are born smart, or some are born to be losers~ ~
Fang Ran looked at the transparent interface floating in front of him at the moment, and for the first time he felt that fate is in fact, extremely unfair.
[Half an hour ago]
A loud rumbling! The whole station collapsed without warning. It collapsed cleanly and collapsed without a hitch.
A loud sound came from overhead, large chunks of concrete and iron bar smashed down, and there was no shelter at all in the empty station hall.
Fang Ran was stunned!
His brain blanked for a second, then instinctively lifted up his legs and ran, fleeing towards the station entrance!
And his mind was filled with a huge shock and confusion at this moment!
What’s going on here?
Eh, I was just simply waiting in the station, and then the perfectly normal station collapsed?
Aren’t I in one of the biggest cities in the whole country?
How come the big station that was built last year and was on TV is a fucking tofu project? (TLN: tofu project is pun, he means how easily this collapse like its made of tofu)
I don’t seem to have done anything harmful today, right? (TLN: Probably think it’s a punishment for doing something bad)
Did I unplug the internet cable at a net cafe in my past life?
Fang Ran is desperately running on the outside, but the inside is full of messed up thoughts passing his mind.
Then, when Fang Ran was thinking about whether he had killed or set fire in his past life, his sight blacked out and was buried by the rocks.
Having a feeling of an extension of time and long flashbacks before dying is all a lie.
This is Fang Ran’s last thought.
With a jolt, Fang Ran suddenly woke up from his chair!
He is covered in a cold sweat from the cold feeling of the moment when he was crushed just now.
“This… I …. What?”
Fang Ran looked at himself again, he was sitting on the station’s chair like nothing had happened. His whole body does not have any injuries. He nervously swallowed a mouthful of saliva, then Fang Ran finally recognized a fact that brought him back from the cold just now.
I’m not dead.
“Ha… Ha… Ha.”
Once he understood this fact, Fang Ran suddenly went limp in his chair, gasping for air, then relaxed, surveyed the surroundings, and after discovering two things, collapsed straight to the floor, because…
It was dark and there was no one.
All around… No, or should I say the world, came an abnormal sense of silence.
Seeing this scene which could cause people to fear and have cold sweat, Fang Ran all of a sudden stiffened.
Hey, hey, not it, stop it, shouldn’t this be the hottest time of the noon? How did the sky suddenly become dark?
Also, where did all the people go?
“No! Calm down! Calm down! I’m Fang Ran, twenty years old, no bad record, do not smoke, do not drink, virgin, single time approximately equal to age.”
Fang Ran mouthed something he didn’t even know what it was because he was nervous, telling himself to calm down and look around first to understand his situation.
Then he stood up and looked around.
There was no one in front of him, hmm.
No one to the right, good.
No one on the left, good.
Fang Ran sat back in his chair again, no one, although very scared, but at least no one threatened his safety, he thought so.
And then to be on the safe side he casually looked back.
And saw a zombie standing there.
“Phew, so it’s a zombie.”
Fang Ran said with a sigh of relief, fortunately, it is not a person, so he isn’t in much danger…
Then he pulled out his legs and ran!
“F*ck you fate ！！！！”
“Raaughh ！！！！！” (TLN: Zombie noise)
The station was filled with the sound of Fang Ran’s angry curses and hissing of the zombie together.
Fang Ran slammed the glass door shut, picked up a broomstick and stuck it into the handle as a bolt. With no time to choose, he picks a random road to escape. He thought to himself that the film he watched was not in vain, and how he was able to calmly pull all this off while being in a dire situation. This should delay some time for the zombie to catch up to him. Just as he looks back…
The zombie directly crashed through the glass door and rushed out…
I f*cking knew the movie was a lie!
Looking at the zombies that were not stopped at all and still rushing towards him, Fang Ran was furious, gritting his teeth and cursing, and ran with all his might!
Breathing more and more heavily, his throat began to feel hot and dry full of anxiety. The feeling of soreness from being tired from long-distance running is catching up to him, and now Fang Neng really feels the regret of those things that they did not go to do in the past time.
I’m sorry, physical education teacher, I was wrong, I should not feel that your class was unnecessary and still also always roll call people which is simply a sick move, next time I will seriously run a kilometer in your class.
“So please bless me with your endurance!”
Fang Ran almost cried while shouting. While he continues running for his life, the miscellaneous thoughts about the current situation frantically surged up in his mind.
What’s going on here?
Where did this zombie come from?
Why is there a zombie!
Is this the first dungeon of the infinity-type novel protagonist!
Also, the zombie, why not just make this a badly written Raccoon City?
I told you, Resident Evil is over, Umbrella Corporation is also dead, the zombie thing is already out of trend, do you understand it or not?
If you understand what I’m talking about, get rid of this thing that’s about to bite me in the ass ….
The moment he gritted his teeth and ran wildly, Fang Ran desperately shouted these irrelevant words in his heart. His memory is like a rising tide, the sea washed away his usual look of these fragments of thoughts, the constant tide rolled up the depths of things rushed to the shore.
Then at the moment when he ran and dodged, he turned and looked back, some buried feelings hidden deep in his eyes were about to gush out ….
【Ding! Unexpected life form found, survival time exceeds 60 seconds, Source Primer qualification granted】 (TLN: Don’t know a good word for that term, just gonna stick with that for now)
【Ding! Welcome to the Night Battle】
The ‘thing’ that made him look stunned appeared in front of his eyes.
The light blue transparent screen was still floating in front of him, looking at the zombie that would soon catch up with him, the desperate Fang Ran could only shout towards the screen!
“Anything is fine, as long as you hurry up and stop that thing behind me!”
Fang Ran turned his head and looked at the zombie chasing after him, although it is also the speed of the average person, but it seems that it will not get tired, so if this continues the first to lose stamina must be himself.
【Ding! Request received, do you want to roll your ability?】
“Roll roll roll! You should hurry up!”
His breathing sound felt like a bellows, and he was panting heavily, still turning his head to look at the zombie behind him and shouting at the interface that suddenly appeared in front of him!
【Ding! Please feel free to touch or make a sound, depict or say the deepest things in your heart, good luck】
The light blue square interface turned into a disc with complex and delicate trajectory patterns covering it, but Fang Ran couldn’t care less, he kept turning his head to look at the zombie that were getting closer and closer to him, his eyelids were twitching. He just barely understood the request after all the running and shaking, and without further thoughts he shouted out loud!
“I want SSR!!!” (TLN: Me too!!!)
The light blue disc seemed to hesitate for a moment, then all the track patterns closed, the disc shrank and converged into a new prompt.
【Congratulations on your SSS-rank ability (laugh)】(TLN: Wow a system can laugh? Suspicious)
An extremely special prompt surfaced, only Fang Ran was too busy looking back at the zombie at the moment to notice. (TLN: Which means he didn’t know the ability he got was an SSS-rank)
【Ding! Congratulations on your new ability】
The previous somewhat special system prompt seemed to be covered up and passed quietly, replaced by another interface prompt, and the entire space instantly stopped and became still.
Feeling like he hit upon a wall, Fang Ran fell directly to the ground. He felt shivers down his heart for a moment, but he found that the zombie behind him was not moving, as if a pause button was pressed.
He then looks at the interface in front of him notifying that he has gained a new ability, and shows a face of bewilderment.
Dang, this can’t actually be the infinity-style web novel cliche, right? (TLN: Basically an op protagonist cliche)
Still with some hesitation, Fang Ran remained silent for a moment, but in the end, helplessly smiled as he sighed and lightly touched the ability interface in front of him.
Then a book with a metal lock fell into his hand.
The first thought that came to him with a slight daze was…
Huh, why does this book look a bit familiar ….?
【Night battle – The Scenario Trial Hidden in the City】
【Achieve an unknown condition to achieve a wish, achieve victory conditions to obtain a reward for this round】
【You have gained an ability】
【Time stopping effect lasts until the end of this beginner prompt】
Looking at a series of light blue messages on the interface, Fang Ran slightly opened his mouth, finally from the incomparable confusion in his head he sorted out a sentence. He gulped and dumbly asked:
“Anyway, I have the ability to get rid of that thing behind me?”
【The Night Battle Abilities vary with the user’s state of mind, and are broadly classified into the technological and mystical side, depending on the participant, it could be immortal cultivation, ancient martial arts, magic and sorcery… Each has its own form of expression born from the world’s recognition and the participant’s own vision】
“Cultivation of immortality… and Unique abilities! Really?”
Fang Ran was astonished for a moment, somewhat unable to believe it at all. And at the moment he heard this voice,
Something seemed to rise from ashes from his heart.
Carrying a 3-feet long sword, roaming the sky and the earth in this universe, or remained hidden among normal people. The moment the supernatural powers are channeled, liberation can be felt within the body. Or the reverse side of technology, in a corner of the forgotten era, cloaked in the arcane robe, using mysterious unknowable power as the staff lit up, spread into a spell to break reality! (TLN: This is some serious chunnibyou thought that is so hard to translate)
Living in this world, everyone may have, in the repetition of the normal daily routine, looking forward to the power to break the ordinary life.
Recalling the old memory from the time as a kid where he firmly believed in that, Fang Ran picked up the book with some difficulty in accepting it. Then all his thoughts broke off when he felt something was wrong…
Wait, it seems to be a little different from his imagination!
… Why does it look familiar ….
Looking at the book that seemed like a magic grimoire or some sort in his hands, Fang Ran realized where something was off. Fang Ran looked at the thing in his hand, slowly it started to resemble something he saw on the TV many years ago.
“This can’t be… right…!?”
The moment he recognized what it really was, Fang Ran suddenly lifted his face expressionlessly. All the exciting thoughts he had just before all retreated to the depths of his mind, and he asked towards the light blue system.
“Didn’t you say that the abilities were all things like the cultivation of immortality, ancient martial arts, magic and sorcery?”
“Then explain to me what the f*ck is going on with this thing that looks exactly the same as that from Cardcaptor Sakura ! ! !” (TLN: Lets gooo, childhood stuff)
He roared with frustration, lifting the magic grimoire in his hand as if it’s a brick, Fang Ran furiously just wanted to smash it. (TLN: Bruh Clow Card OP, 53 Cards = 53 abilities, Gimme that power)
Oh my god…
Why is it this …
Where is the promised good-looking and dominant ability? Even if it’s not the cultivation of immortal powers, magic, alchemy, and other high-level abilities, you can give me a strange and bizarre ability and I would take it over this!
Fang Ran felt that his expectations, which were alive for a second, had died completely.
How come both were chosen, but the main characters I know of have such cool abilities… and strong…
【Ding! Repeat, ability manifestation varies depending on the user】
I knew it, fate is so unfair!
Somehow these words came out of his mind. While gritting his teeth and shaking, Fang Ran slammed the book from his hand on the ground and cursed!
“F*ck you and your clow card! I’m not a magical girl! ! !”
