SMASH

HUFF...

HUFF...

HUFF...

William was exhausted from moving the book around with such force each time.

 It was only given, he didn't want to take risks of them getting up after he gave them this much thrashing. 

To begin with, they were pests that were hard to kill.

He already killed three rats with just the technique he had been using all this time. 

But he was at his limits. The rats just kept coming one after another which was also a good thing in another way. 

The rats were not coming together and he didn't have to worry about fighting two or three of them at the same time.

Minute turned to minutes when finally, he was done with another.

 There were some notification sounds from the object in his wrist that he could not open because of the dangers that came up one after the other.

"HUff.. HUff… FUCK! How many more!?" William exclaimed in anger while holding the book high to intimidate the rat but it did nothing like he hoped.

The rat still pounced just like the others, only this time, William was very tired.

He smacked the creature far yet his muscles had gone numb. His hands felt limp and even mustering the strength to pick the book up seemed like a lost cause.

He was only using the momentum of the book to hit them at this point.

Yet in the face of adversity, William could only continue to use the book again and again to smack it down with less and less strength than the previous attacks.

William was at his limits, he smacked the creature with as much strength as he needed.

'Hm?' William looked at the rat coming yet this time, it was slow. 

It was stumbling with each move yet the will to attack William was unlike any before. It felt desperate.

'The feet's broken…'

William took the opportunity to hit the rat with as much strength as he could. 

He had something in mind, but it was too brutal, he was already being too inconsiderate to the damn pest.

It was a torturous death to get thrown again and again with such force to the ground but William had no choice.

He had to smack it down again and again and finally, it stopped attacking and fell to the back. 

William found the courage to desperately move and just smash the book at the rat and it was the end of this one too. 

Without taking note of the corpse, he went and circled the tower while praying that no more of them come again. 

He was so desperate that his resistance to use the sacrificial book's true power was fading away.

He opened it while circling the tower to click the first option just before another came running toward him.

Yet nothing came for a minute.

Suddenly, the hologram opened on its own.

====

William fell on his knees, his body was too exhausted to even care about anything else coming toward him.

He fell on his face and went unconscious yet again, something that was happening too often. 

The notifications came one after another without stopping as if some new guidelines or message were coming from it.

William was not going to get up anytime soon if not for the fact that his stomach was now hurting.

It was different than the times when he was hungry in college for two days straight.

Here, he was getting too exhausted due to physical exertion, something that would make even the sturdiest get hungry.

William's eyes opened, he wanted to sleep more as his eyes just wanted to close again, it was as if the eyelids had a force of its own. Trying to change William's choice with those sweet sweet dreams.

William was just too hungry and impatient to sleep.

"UGH…" 

With one big force, he got up completely and looked at the front in dizziness.

'What is happening to me? How can I get so tired with just this?' William asked himself, whatever the case, he was not one of the people who would get exhausted and fell unconscious with only this much.

It was at this moment of reflection that he realized that he hadn't eaten anything for a day before he came to this demonic place, now things had become much more understandable.

William went inside the tower and sat near the button. His hands were bruised and he lost track of where the sacrificial book was but he forcefully clicked on the button for progression.

====

[You have opened the second wave's gift!]

[Congratulations! Transferred 5 Tower Points to the tower. Transferred 1 consumable item: 'loaf of bread']

====

"Finally!!" he saw the 'loaf of bread' notification and exclaimed loudly.

Suddenly, something came out of thin air in front of him directly on the ground. William moved his eyes frantically and saw a big loaf of bread. 

It was too big to be considered a normal-sized loaf.

It looked to be just a little less than a meter in length. Almost double the size of a normal one. Its width was also not something he could belittle. 

It was still bread but in his eyes, it was a sort after treasure. It was food!

Before he knew it, William pounced at the dry bread and bit a big chunk of it.

Even that big chunk looked small in comparison to the size of the whole loaf.

He bit the chunk off and started eating. One would have felt that the bread was just too bland or dry to be good but William was content with any food.

He was not picky at all and had the will to eat anything as long as it was borderline ethical and able to content his stomach.
