Evolution?

I did not explore further; my mana was already mostly exhausted and wounds had yet to heal. Instead I headed back to my base. It was not a long walk; I had only just entered the forest.

I could not help but shake my head at the encounter. I was truly too weak. How was a single goblin to survive? By evolving of course!

This was the first time I was happy to see the confines of what had once been a prison for me. The cave had a single entrance, which was of course made out of stone. There was a small pond outside, which connected to a river that went through the forest. This pond fed into the underground stream that went through my cave.

There was of course a plethora of trees that surrounded the cave, and a small clearing. Most of the clearing was charred black and covered the crispy corpses. I sighed as I looked at the corpses. I might not care about them, but they tarnished the image of my home.

I spent the next few hours clearing the corpses. I did not bury them, rather just dragged them into the forest. The creatures that lived here could take care of the bodies.

The sun was setting when I finished, and I wiped my brow in satisfaction. The charred ground was still an eyesore, but it looked much better without the bodies.

When I went inside, I had a simple meal of freshly caught fish and bread that I had made from the grains that were left in the kitchen. It was peaceful, the only thing that would have made it better was a cup of beer. How I missed alcohol! When I evolved in could not wait to visit a city and partake in this tasty adult beverage.

I sighed as I rubbed my stomach. With the day finished it was finally time for the main event. I can honestly say I have never been so excited to go to sleep.

My body was exhausted, and yet despite this I stared at the ceiling for what seemed like hours. I had counted countless sheep, before I was finally greeted by the sweet embrace of slumber.

<Commencing evolution>

My body began to radiate pain as the evolution take place. I could feel my body being pulled in every direction. The pain Began to rise, causing my complete agony. Finally, after what felt like an eternity the pain climaxed, and a sense of relief began to spread through my joints.

My mind felt fuzzy and my body tingled. I tried to move. My body would not respond to my commands, and my eyes which had just been staring at the ceiling like it was the endless abyss began to close.
