Pride (part 2)

The mystical place alone was already mysterious or begin with but then there was a sort of dream.

'What else should I expect?'

Honestly, I was I couldn't understand what was happening to me. 'How other people will act if they were in this situation?' I thought.

"Are you the one who helped meearlier?" I wasn't even sure if I was hallucinating but I was trying to collect some more information and assess the situation at hand as rationally as possible.

"I shouldn't have done that, but there wasn't any other way, was there?" The entity answered which was something I didn't expect.

"Well, thanks for saving me, but I tell me about your true intentions. Why did you help me? What's your goal?" I had already learned from that mistake and didn't intend to let happen again.

"It's fine even if you don't understand. That was something that shouldn't have happened in the first place. Well, you will need to continue this journey alone from here. That's the price."

"What do you mean by that? You are not making any sense at all. What are you?"

"I am Pride and I came into existence with you when you first appeared in this world."

'What is this guy talking about? He was there with me? But couldn't I feel his presence all of this time. Is he some sort of God?'

In any case, it must be related to the reason why I was transported inside of this mystical place in the first place.

"It's gone." Pride said at the place where the silver sphere of light was.

"Ah, where did it go? And what are these two other spheres of light anyway?" I asked, remembering what happened when I touched one of me.

"Let me tell you one thing. During these fifteen years, the fact that you didn't notice my presence was something of an absolute necessity. You mustn't understand. Your understanding is the key, but it's also the final goal."

"I don't like the way you try to sound mysterious" I said. When he mentioned his presence, I began to understand why I felt like there were vague details of events that I couldn't remember. "So you are the one who caused the gaps in my memories?"

"Think about this. The information you acquired from the books you read wasn't something that you can just process easily in a short amount of time. Even if you with your intelligence, you need an astronomical processing ability to process all of the information from all of these millions of books. However, you did that in just 5 years or so. Does that answer your question?"

"Do you have something to with that?" I asked.

However, he might have a point. Even if I was incredibly intelligent it still would take time to completely understand this information and understand how this world the way I did. But I thought that it was just some kind of cheat power.

"But are you a kind of God or something like that?" I continued asking.

"That's not the case." Pride answered.

"…Okay, so what are you?" I asked.

"You don't need to know."

"Hey, this situation is already quite frustrating, so at least give me a reason to not consider you as my enemy," I said.

"I was always there with you. Otherwise, you would have already died," Pride answered with his usual tone.

"I am not that stupid to let myself die meaninglessly," I said, feeling like Pride was somehow making of me.

"I can read your mind…."

I was interrupted in the middle of my train of thought, and I was extremely shocked.

"...We share the same memory so I know everything about your past. You don't know about me because I used our power to alter some of these memories for some extremely important reasons and not let those things go out of control," Pride continued.

The more I listened to him the more I got confused. It was just as if he was messing with me.

"What the hell? Is there something inside me?" I asked, thinking about the possibility that I had split personalities.

"It's not what you think it is. But under extreme circumstances, things can get out of hand. It can even destroy your soul."

"What? You seriously should have at least told me about these things. How should I know about that? You were there all of this time right?"

"That's not how it works. As I said, everything would be over if you were to understand everything. Also, I won't be able to give a hand again because I have used all of the particles that your body had accumulated during these fifteen years to temporarily create new abilities..." Pride explained, then he pointed at the place where one of the spheres of light was.

"I named him Judgment. Unlike me, he can only destroy things

so you need to regain your consciousness before Judgement destroys the whole planet."

There were a lot of things that surprised me since I came to this world but what Pride said was something else.

"New abilities? Wai-"

I couldn't finish my sentence because my mind ached and I felt like I was going to throw up.

The scenery in front of me began to fade away and before I knew it, my eyes opened as if I just woke up from a bad dream.

Dear readers, the events of this chapter, and all of the early chapters happen for a reason. It's still something beyond the MC's ability to change at this point... You might be frustrated now but the revelation and the MC's change would make you feel extremely satisfied.
