Fidelis thought she had given herself some strength, but she was still trying not to cry over her weak legs with a trembling jaw.
But in order to live, she had to move.
When she took a step forward by barely moving her quivering leg with clenched teeth, the floating screen flickered out and back in with a bell-like notification.
Current health is 100%.
‘Crap, has it started?’
She wanted to give up again as soon as the transparent screen reappeared with a new message, but her decision was firmly made.
She looked around with my anxious eyes and pulled out a candle from the wall. It was a weak light, but it was better than nothing.
“Fuck! Ghosts, if you are coming out, don’t. Go back inside.”
I was in tears at the situation where the swearing came out spontaneously when I recklessly scratched my feet with something. I had to talk to myself to calm my mind. I looked at the nearest door and shook my head to not have any regrets.
I hardened my mind to not touch the door since I didn’t have the courage to turn the bloody handle. I moved forward from a little distance from the door.
As Fidelis passed the door from as far away as she could, she heard the sound of an old door opening behind her.
At the sound of the door slowly opening, Fidelis stopped involuntarily and straightened her waist. At the same time, there was no more sound of the door opening.
She felt someone’s presence behind her back. A drop of sweat ran down her neck to her back. Fidelis closed her eyes as if liberated from the door opening and opened her eyes, then she screamed and began to run away.
“I am out! I can’t stay here! I’m out!”
Without looking behind me, I ran through the dark hallway without hesitation, looking only in front of me. My brain had already been paralyzed with fear before I could rationally think that if I screamed more, the ghosts could come out more.
As I was running, looking only in front of me, I saw a small gap behind the stairs. I hurried into it and hid there before taking a rough breath.
Fidelis exhaled a long breath before crouching on the floor. And, when she heard a beep, she suddenly jumped and flapped like a fish out of water.
As she hurriedly came into the stairs, she realized that her candle had gone out. Fidelis pouted her mouth and wept again.
I grabbed the extinguished candle as if it were my last weapon and tried to step out carefully from the bottom of the gap, but I unknowingly smashed my knees to the floor of the stairs and my knees suddenly broke.
” Your vigorous running has drained your energy. Your current health is 21%.”
At the same time, a long horizontal bar showing an empty space caught my eye. There was very little space filled in red, and on top of it was written ‘21% health’. It seemed to show my current physical condition.
Fidelis let out a sigh of relief as she looked at her bloody pain from her knees from time to time. I didn’t seem to run that much, but my stamina was almost at the bottom.
As I was forced to rest, I crawled out from the gap of stairs and looked around the surroundings. When I made sure there was nothing, I made my steps slowly and sat down.
I tidied my clinging hair as my face and neck were damp with cold sweat. I also raised my pants and patted my knees, which had hit the floor.
I had to fumble blindly as I couldn’t see a single light, but luckily, I didn’t touch the wound until I could see it. Maybe I was bruised.
“I’m really going crazy.”
I only heard the sound of the door, and I was scared to death. It was the first time I had run away looking forward like that. Not only my body, but my mind as well.
I was dazed in thought, and seeing the blood color bar which was nearly full floating in front of me, I had already reached 80% of my stamina.
I got up from my seat instead of filling 100% to the end. They said that just walking calmly restores energy, so this was fine.
When I sneaked out, I saw that both ends of the hallway were engulfed in darkness. I couldn’t even see where I first woke up.
To be honest, it was almost the same hallway, so I had a creepy feeling as if I could jump in place anytime if there’s a sound. I took the extinguished candle and brought the embers to life by moving to the light of another glowing candle nearby.
“I wish I had a flashlight or a lantern… No, send me home before then.”
When the candle lit up again, my mind seemed to calm down a little bit. I walked cautiously and looked at the passing door with a lot of vigilance. Because I was afraid that the door might open again. Then, my footsteps stopped.
“Shall I go into the room?”
If I open the door and enter the room, there must be a small window. Then, through that window, I could guess at what floor I am right now.
If it was on the lower floor, it would be okay to open the window and jump.
I became depressed as I looked at the star-studded pajamas. My sweat was dry now, and my body was shivering from the cold air as I touched the chilly air in the hallway. There was no such thing as a shoe under my bare feet since I was so frightened that I didn’t even notice.
There were some dark and gloomy substances around my feet, probably because of running down the hallway, and there were also small scratches.
But the current situation was too frightening to worry about all of them. And, I tried to dispel my fear by shaking my own feet.
It’s a mansion, so maybe there’s at least one coat or slippers.
Fidelis thought that since the mansion of the dead is based on a mansion, it didn’t seem strange that one or two of them existed.
I looked around with my blurry eyes, and stood in front of the cleanest door and tried to open it, but it just clicked and didn’t open.
I tried breaking it and forcing it to open, but the moment before I made a loud noise, I thought I might be the first victim to be spotted by the demons if I made a noise here.
My goal was to survive thinly, get out of this mansion as quickly as possible, and return to reality, so I never intended to do anything dangerous. I was going to hide myself like a coward.
I don’t know if that’ll go the way I want it to be… … .
This time I opened the door next to it, but it didn’t open again. I started to turn the doorknobs with a quick action to see if they could be opened. I grabbed them one by one and turned them, and the seventh door opened with a click.
“Uh… . Why did it open… . I suddenly feel scared… … .”
My heart, which had been calmed down, was revived and began to pound. The first sound of the door being opened was not pleasant, but ominous, and I felt like I was going to die. After a few short deep breaths, I glanced around and swallowed my saliva dry.
“Don’t, don’t come out… . I warned you… .”
With an unbelievable pretense, I gently opened the door and stepped in to enter. I felt the cold air on my bare feet. I felt scared to death even if there wasn’t a sound.
“Don’t come out! I am coming in!”
As I held out the candle and entered, I met with the gloomy atmosphere.
“Aww! Shall I go out again! Will it even be okay?!”
I was rolling my feet back and forth before realizing something and bit my mouth.Screaming like this was like calling a ghost. I quietly stepped back again, looked around, and stood still for a moment.
After some time passed and no sound was heard, I went back into the room cautiously, reached out with his candle and looked around the room.
Cobwebs hung in every corner of the ceiling, and the wooden planks on the floor lost their strength and creaked with every step I took.
The bed had long since collapsed, and it looked even more gloomy, with black stains running down the walls and drying out.
There was also a foul odor coming from the room. It smelled like a burnt smell, and it smelled like an old wound in the process of healing. The curtain that covered the glass door leading to the terrace had long since fallen, and only the moonlight leaking through the glass door gave a dim light and also heightened the gloom of the room.
Outside, it was so pitch-black that I couldn’t see anything except the moon. The mansion of the dead itself was a very large mansion, so there were many rooms and it was easy to get lost.
In fact, I was running only looking ahead and came to an unfamiliar place, so I had no way of knowing which room I was in right now.
Uh, it’s just a game anyway.
Fidelis, who had been exposing herself for a while and shrinking her neck in fear, slowly looked around the spacious room. Without hearing anything, she walked towards the glass door, confirming that there was nothing in particular.
Every time I stepped on the floor, I was afraid of the sound of the floor, and tears seemed to flow from my eyes again. As I glanced at the collapsed desk in the corner, a slightly cracked lantern was left haphazardly on the floor.
For the first time, my expression brightened. I quickly lifted the lantern and used the candle to light the lantern.
“The item, ‘Lantern’ has been acquired.”
By seeing something like this, I was able to feel once again that I was really in the game. Seeing the brighter surroundings, I became more comfortable. Sniffling my nose, I headed towards the terrace, where I stopped abruptly.
“Door, I need to close the door for a moment.”
If I left it wide open like this, I wouldn’t know who would suddenly come in and stand behind me. I needed to be strict about that.
I just need to open it a little bit.
As Fidelis turned to head towards the door, she screamed at the person standing in front of the door, not sure if the ghosts had come.
In front of the door, with her head bowed, a ghost with burn scars all over her body stood swaying from side to side. Fidelis was so startled that she started pouring out her tears, which had stopped a while ago, even along with her hiccups.
“Black, huh… Tah, hiccup!”
I’m leaving… . Don’t come in!
To keep my mouth shut and to avoid touching the ghost as much as possible, I was busy rolling my eyes to find a way out.
My legs trembled since I couldn’t be able to escape into the hallway because of the ghost blocking her door.But, at that moment, I was delighted to see the glass door to the terrace behind me. Without turning my body, I glanced behind me, moving my stiff legs as far as I could and approached the glass door.
Feeling the cold touch of the glass on my back, I carefully opened the door, but the door wouldn’t open. I looked at the latch to see if the door was locked, but it didn’t.
It was blocked by the mansion itself. My plan to run away by jumping out of the window was ruined.
For a moment, she thought. It’s glass, so it can be broken.
Fidelis, not wanting to lose even her little bit of hope, closed her eyes and slammed the glass door with her fist, but there was only a hollow sound.
It didn’t even budge.
She hit it harder a few more times and the result didn’t change. Fidelis’ body began to tremble more than before, knowing that there was no way for her to escape. Her teeth even made a crackling sound when they touched her fears.
The ghost, who was blocking the door and stood still until now, took a step into the room. A ghastly burnt red piece of raw flesh flowed down and fell to the floor as soon as it entered. At the same time, Fidelis felt as if her heart had fallen into the abyss.
“Oh My God.”
I would rather close my eyes and pass out rather than recalling this scene into my mind. Keeping a certain distance as much as possible from the slowly approaching ghost, Fidelis moved slowly. The same stench that was emanating from the room was also emanating from the ghost.
