Chapter 129 – A Hint

 

“Found it.”

Xue tried to find more about the Skill Box the second she heard Yu’er talking about it. Using the Skill Box as a keyword, she was able to find a few more things.

“That’s expensive.”

“What? Let me see.”

Yu’er and Xue were beside each other, staring at the screen, Max had to move beside them to see the content they were looking at.

From what they found, there were currently a few Skill Boxes being sold by other Awakeneds. Their prices were absurdly high, from tens of millions to the most expensive one, going for a few billion.

What they gathered from the limited information was that each Skill Box contains only one skill.

Max could see various skills available. Skill Box (Ice Spike), Skill Box (Double Strength), Skill Box (Extra Arms), and Skill Box (Rock Body) were a few of them.

Written after the Skill Box should be the skill they contain and it becomes more expensive, the more useful the skill is. The Skill Box (Rock Body) had a price more than tenfold the of Skill Box (Extra Arms).

Other than that, there were only able to find one final explanation about the Skill Box since they all gave out the same description.

“A treasure from the past that can be used to change the skill of an Awakened?”

Seeing that there was no further explanation about the Skill Box such as how can they use it, how it works and where it came from, Max figured that it should be common knowledge for every Awakened around the world.

“Treasure from the past? These Skill Box should be a rare find. But I just saw it a while ago, coming out of a man’s body.”

“Hmm? This is the Skill Box? Aren’t they called Awakening Cube? I’m pretty sure these were called Awakening Cube in the past.”

Yu’er was beginning to doubt her knowledge about this item. No one could blame her. It’s been years since she last heard of this item.

Now she finally understood. Initially, she thought the Skill Box was another item from the Lost Treasures that their parents wanted to find, turns out the Awakening Cube, and the Skill Box were the same items.

Now that Yu’er knows what precisely the item they were talking about, she naturally had some knowledge about it.

“I know some more things about these Skill Boxes. When you get your hands on it, you could use it to swap one of your skill with the skill contained in the Skill Box.”

“But it’s not all that good. After swapping your skill, you could only use it again after some time. Swapping back and forth is impossible.”

“It isn’t worth the price. The System Store is more convenient, cheap, and the skills are stronger.”

“In here, the Skill Box is expensive even if the skill it contained is useless.”

Regardless of the price, the Skill Box is still one of the most popular items being exchanged. No matter how expensive it will be, because of its rarity, Awakeneds would always buy it.

Nowadays, the Awakened community learned ways to trade fairly with each other without any deceit.

When an Awakened wanted to sell an item, they had to use the services of a reputable auction. Selling it on their own isn’t a problem, only that there is no trust between the two parties.

Purchasing an item that way can result in scams and fake items as the buyer would have to pay first before receiving the item.

Going through a reputable auction would remove all those risks. The auction would first take the item and check it’s authenticity, only after that would it be sold on their platform.

The purpose of it would be to eliminate any kinds of trickery and ensure fair trade between the two sides.

In exchange for their service, they would take a small percentage of the sale. Currently, there is only one world-renowned auction that most Awakeneds use.

Rumors circulated that the Awakened behind it was extremely powerful being able to offer services to most Awakeneds all over the world at the same time while also having the ability to transport goods in every part of the world using an unknown skill.

Until now, no one knows who he is or who they are since there isn’t any way for them to locate the one behind it.

Max and Xue listened to Yu’er’s explanation, but before they could comprehend her words, she continued,

“And just like you said, this item is from the past. The Skill Box is only one of the many Lost Treasures that were found in different areas of the world.”

“It is also the most common one among all the treasures. However, most Awakeneds collect them in their own secure, hidden storage, away from the reach of others.”

“Because the best way to use the Skill Box isn’t to change an Awakened’s skill.”

“It is rare for a Skill Box to contain a strong skill that swapping skills doesn’t happen often. Though there were unconfirmed rumors that someone found a Skill Box containing a Resurrection Skill in the past.”

“But even if that’s true there should be some conditions for that.”

“The best way to use a Skill Box, which most Awakeneds can agree to, is to turn an ordinary person into an Awakened.”

“That was why it was previously called Awakening Cube. With a Skill Box, there was never a time when it failed to turn someone into an Awakened, boasting a one hundred percent success rate through the years.’

Yu’er watched as Max and Xue’s expression turned into surprise; she was the same the first time she heard about it.

“Really?”

“Yeah, that’s why Awakeneds collect them so they can give it to their loyal subordinates. Some wealthy people also spend billions to buy them.”

“And if you look closely, there aren’t much Skill Boxes being sold, and all the skills were useless.”

What Yu’er said was true. Of all the Skill Box that were available, the Rock Body Skill was already the best one.

“It’s all gone.”

Xue spoke out from the side, turning the screen to them, and just like she said, the Skill Boxes available all disappeared.

All of it immediately got bought while they were talking about it. That showed how valuable and attractive the item is in the eyes of Awakeneds.

“That’s fast.”

“Yeah.”

“What do we do now?”

Max thought about every information they gathered so far. He felt it was great that they were able to find enough details to understand what the Skill Box is.

However one last question lingered his mind, and it seems Yu’er arrived at the same thought,

“The Skill Box is one of the Lost Treasures from the past. How is it that you saw it coming out of a dead man?”

Xue stayed silent on one side of the bed, intently listening to their conversation. This was an entirely new topic for her.

She was aware that she couldn’t contribute much this time but whatever decision they come down to, Xue would follow and support them with her full capability.

It was then a squeaky childish voice interrupted them from the far side of their room.

[Ha! I heard what the three of you were talking about! Hehe! I came here today to give you a hint!]

Chapter 128 – Return

 

While the two were finishing their last set of preparations, Max, who was almost home, slowly moving on the other part of the city, was deep in his thoughts.

This was quite an eventful night, Max got to learn about a lot of things, and he was able to encounter a few people that were an Awakened the same as him.

However, alongside his success, Max was also left with many questions, questions that he instinctively felt to be important in their future.

The first two Awakeneds that Max encountered didn’t do anything unusual, and he can’t be bothered about them as the chances of them being engaged in a conflict were close to none.

But the last two people’s actions were definitely suspicious. Max was confident that the fat guy was an Awakened.

He spotted some clues that exposed him being an Awakened, the cube floating to his mouth and the cube disappearing from his Inventory.

The last person left would be his partner who was someone Max had no clue about. The guy didn’t make any moves, so Max has no way to prove if he is an Awakened.

The only reason that Max assumed he was an Awakened was that he doesn’t look like an assistant of the fat Awakened and from how they spoke, the fat guy never once showed disdain on him.

That only meant he had something on him that was enough to be respected by the fat Awakened.

He might not necessarily be an Awakened. But Max would rather believe he is than to make a mistake of assuming he is weak.

Recalling the missing cube, Max sighed. It was a pity that the glowing cube slipped away from his grasp. The item was too mysterious. Sadly, they disappeared before he could take it back.

Not only that, seeing everything that happened back at their base with his own eyes, Max questioned their purpose. Who are they and what are their plans? Will it affect or endanger them somehow? Should he do anything about it?

Shaking his head, he chose to think about it later when he gets home. Max was busy the entire night, not realizing that it was already this late.

As soon as he got home, Max immediately went to find Yu’er to tell her about the unbelievable events he had been through.

When he went inside their room, he saw Yu’er with Xue, happily smiling as they chatted with each other.

Max never asked Xue to join him on his trips since the day he made her his slave. Instead, Max asked her to stay with Yu’er.

Fully aware that he was currently a lot stronger than Yu’er and he would be fine being alone, Max left Xue with his sister for protection.

With Xue around Yu’er, Max would be less worried about her being a target of anyone with evil intentions.

They also got Xue the same phone as them for easier communication and to let her learn more about the world.

In the event that he wasn’t around and they get attacked, they could team up and help each other. Nevertheless, Max kept reminding them to notify him right away if that were to happen.

But with Yu’er asking Max to bring her with him when he goes out, saying she wanted to gain combat experience against other Awakeneds, Max could only promise to take her out sometimes.

By the looks of it, Max made a great decision, seeing them having fun around each other with bright smiles on their faces.

Every time she goes to school, Xue always change her appearance into a cute and harmless girl, winning the hearts of many students.

While not at the level of her original beauty, many guys still attempted to make a move on her. But seeing her and Yu’er being together, they all remove those thoughts.

As they got closer and closer, Xue also became more and more open to Max, constantly speaking with him with no reservations.

For him, she was like the closest friend of Yu’er, her assistant, and protector at the same time while also being someone who he could trust since she won’t ever betray them.

Xue and Yu’er immediately stopped what they were doing as soon as Max got in. It was late, and they had been wondering what happened to him, thinking he should have been back a few hours earlier.

“Haah.”

Max laid down on the space below their feet, feeling extremely tired running around all over the place the entire night.

“I have a lot of news.”

Turning to them while he laid on the bed, Max began to open his mouth. He didn’t bother to hide it from Xue as she will always be on their side and it would be better if she were to know all of it.

Max started telling them about everything he saw. From the kidnapping done by the two Awakeneds to the glowing cube that disappeared from his Inventory.

Yu’er and Xue weren’t able to react fast enough to say something before Max continuously spoke. They could only listen to his words, digesting the unbelievable information they were hearing.

After talking about everything, Max watched their focused expressions, waiting for their next words.

The first one to speak was Yu’er. After a few minutes of contemplation, she seemed to have thought of something, slowly voicing out her words.

“Can you tell me more about the glowing cube? What it looks like, and what did you feel when you touched it?”

Max doesn’t know where she was going, but he still tried to recall more details about the glowing cube.

“The cube was about this size, and it looks like it’s made from an unknown material with a glass or a crystal feel when you touch it. It glows in a blue hue, not too bright, more like the moon if it’s blue and has the shape of a cube.”

Max opened one of his hands wide while curling his fingers in a grabbing manner as if holding on to something. That was the best explanation he could think of, only seeing the glowing cube twice.

When Yu’er heard his explanation, she went back deep in her thoughts, trying to recall something at the back of her mind.

Suddenly, her eyes shined as she remembered something, turning up to look at Max.

“I remember! A cube that’s glowing, right? I’m pretty sure our parents mentioned something like that before. I think it’s called a Skill Box. Ugh. That’s all I heard.”

Yu’er showed a regretful expression, before adding,

“They told me this a long time ago, but at that time, I didn’t listen to everything they said.”

“Why?”

“We had a discussion for a few hours about lots of things, mostly them telling stories. Most of it wasn’t interesting, but at the end of it, I became too bored to focus.”

“All I know is that if we’re talking about the same thing, it should be called a Skill Box and it’s useful? I heard the word Skill Box quite a few times from them like when they talked about someone wants a Skill Box or how they should find a Skill Box.”

“Skill Box? Looks like we need to find more information about it.”

Yu’er’s information wasn’t enough for them to determine what the glowing cube was and what it was for, but if it is certainly called a Skill Box, then they can try to search for in their phone.

“Found it.”

Chapter 127 – Two Skills

 

While everything was frozen, Max pushed the vent cover open and got down on top of the cage below him.

When he saw the familiar cube forming on the chest of the dead man, Max didn’t let go of the chance and stopped the time.

Not wanting to waste time, only having thirty seconds left, Max quickly got down and hurried towards the table where the glowing cube was.

Looking at the glowing cube more closely, Max was amazed by the magical object he was looking at.

The cube was emitting blue light on its surface like how the moon shines in the sky. Max didn’t have any idea about what the object does but seeing the fat guy holding it, meant that it wasn’t dangerous.

As he was short on time, Max chose to ask questions later and took the cube that was on its way to the mouth of the fat guy in his Inventory.

Without waiting for anything else, Max jumped back on the cage into the vent then securely closing it.

Since Max already got what he wanted and knows that they would be a commotion once they find out the cube is gone, he hurriedly crawled back to the entrance, making a run for it.

Max felt his body being unusually heavy now that he has something quite valuable with him, his heart pounding in nervousness.

The time resumed once Max reached the entrance, without looking back, he ran away as fast as he can and only stopped when he was a few blocks away, hiding in a small alley close to a busy street.

On his face plastered a bright smile as he willed the Inventory to release the glowing cube, excited to inspect his loot.

A few seconds had passed, and nothing showed up. His excited smile slowly turned stiff when he didn’t see the glowing cube in his Inventory.

“It’s not here?”

Max tried, again and again, finding his cube but still, there was nothing. The glowing cube disappeared.

“It’s gone.”

Max once again hid outside the same building, taking advantage of his dark surroundings to sneak his way in.

After contemplating, Max decided to go and find out what happened after he ran away. He also wanted to know if the glowing cube came back to their hands.

An item disappearing in the Inventory without any reason was impossible, so Max could only think that they might have done something.

Before Max stopped time, the fat guy was on the process of eating the glowing cube. The cube flew to his mouth at high speed as if it was sucked in.

If Max didn’t stop the time, it might have disappeared the next second. He considered if that was the reason why.

Everything would be clear after he sees it for himself. Going back to the vents, Max reached the end not long after.

When he peeked into the room, Max was dumbfounded on the scene before him.

There was nothing.

Nothing was left in the room like they were never there in the first place.

Everyone was nowhere to be seen, all their stuff on the table, the couch, the cage, even the bloodstains on the floor. Everything was gone.

From the condition of the room, it was like no one had used it at all. Only after thoroughly checking the room and the room above did Max completely believe they were gone.

With no reason for him to stay, Max left with his mind blank, no way of explaining the strange phenomenon that just happened.

“Hey, did you forget to use your skill again?”

Fattu Zhu noticed something as he looked at their surroundings and turned to his partner, reminding him of his task.

“Hmm? Do I have to? We’re done anyway.”

“Use it! Just to be sure! It’s not like you will lose something!”

“Fine.”

His partner pushed open his hands in two different directions. All of a sudden, on the tips of his fingers, a thin barrier was forming.

Pushing his hands further out, the barrier covered themselves then the entire room until it covered their whole base.

The barrier was responsible for effectively hiding them from any Awakened that tries to locate them. Everything that is inside the barrier would be on their own dimension.

On the outside, no one would expect that in their base that has nothing in it, two people were still doing their own business, only it was in another space hidden to anyone’s eyes.

“There.”

“Simple right? And this guarantees our safety. Who can find us in our own space? This is like our small dimension, except us, no one else will know the existence of this place.”

Fatty Zhu smugly said, feeling extremely comfortable. This was the skill of his partner, one of the most important reasons why they could easily do anything they wanted.

“Yeah yeah. Did you secure the Skill Box?”

His partner intently stared at him. That Skill Box is a treasure. It is a useful tool that can potentially make them stronger or if they didn’t like it, selling it was also an option.

The Skill Box, no matter how useless, can be sold for least tens of millions to more than a few billion, depending on its effects.

“Of course! It’s in here. The safest place it can be!”

Fatty Zhu patted his large stomach with a face full of satisfaction before sucking in the body of the man lying on the table.

The sight of it was quite mystical, as if he was inhaling smoke into his mouth, except this time, it was a solid object being sucked in.

“If my mouth catches it, it will not escape, no matter what!”

Even when he just sucked in a whole body, Fatty Zhu was still smiling. Inside the space of his stomach, was a glowing cube, shining on multiple items around it.

“We’ll get a lot of money from that if we sell it. Or maybe we should trade it with others but let’s check it first if it’s useful for us.”

“Let’s decide when we reach the other city tomorrow. I’ll take all our stuff now, and we’ll move when the sun rises.”

Fatty Zhu proceeded to suck the objects around them one by one from the cage, to the table. When he was finished, Fatty Zhu went up to the upper room and did the same thing.

Right as he went back, his partner was absorbed on his phone, reading about the activities that were happening.

Seeing the dangerous clips, his partner concernedly turned to Fatty Zhu once again,

“Are you sure we can go there with just the two of us? Can we manage it?”

Having been with his partner for years, Fatty Zhu knew what was on his mind. He softly laughed while saying,

“Heheh, don’t be too nervous. With your skill hiding us from anyone and me being powerful, who could beat us?”

“Don’t forget, those kids don’t know anything. What can their skills do to us?”

“Hahaha.”

Fatty Zhu laughed in a carefree manner, feeling no pressure while patting the shoulders of his partner. Still laughing, Fatty Zhu’s eyes then shined in a mysterious light before adding his last few words to reassure his partner,

“Heh, those newbies dared to be arrogant with their puny skills?”

“Who said we only have one skill?”
