A Journey That Changed The World

Chapter 39 An Odyssey Begins

Archer followed the river as he kept using Aura-Detection constantly, but he was getting no pings. , Looking around all he could see was jungle, as the afternoon sun started to cool down. , Pulling out a bottle of Rune Shine, he took a swig as he walked along, that’s when he noticed the river going into a dark and dingy cave. , ”Did I float through that cave to get here.” , He didn’t care but had to find another way north, the cave went straight into a sheer cliff so that was a no go, looking left and right but he didn’t see anyway around it. , So he just chose right and continued walking, following the cliff until he could find a way up, looking at the skinny ass tree in front of him. , ”Lucky I’m 13.” , He approached the tree and started climbing. , His hands and feet moved quickly and expertly, finding the right crevasses in the skinny tree as he climbed higher and higher up. , Eventually, he reached the top of the cliff, and the view that greeted him was nothing short of breathtaking. , Before him stretched a vast expanse of jungle, dense with vibrant green foliage and teeming with life. , Trees towered over one another, their branches intertwined in an intricate dance of life, while colorful birds flitted from branch to branch. , Extending far into the distance, the jungle disappeared into a soft haze, hinting at the vastness of the unspoiled wilderness that lay beyond. , Archer scanned the jungle, taking in all the sights, sounds, and smells that wafted up from the canopy below. , The air was thick with the scent of damp earth and rich vegetation, and the sounds of hidden creatures rustling about filled the air with life. , The cliff led to another long stretch of jungle, so he started walking as his Aura-Detector started pinging like crazy. , Arrows quickly flew towards him, he Thunder-Stepped out of the way. , Looking around he didn’t see anything, but heard some whispering. , ”Demi-human like the Northman, we must eat.” , ”Meat.” , ”Hungry.” , Archer pinpointed the voices with help of his senses and Aura-Detection, as he dodged more arrows he cast Fire Missiles in the direction of the voices. , Boom!~ Boom!~ Boom!~ , Three bodies flew out from the bushes, they looked like the same cannibals from before. , Humans with weird looking sharp teeth, tribal tattoos and ritual scars. , Cutting their hearts out, Archer continued on with his trek. , He came to the top of a hill, looking north all he could see was green stretching into the distance, he sighed as he jumped down the hill. , Sliding down to the there, as he got to the bottom he came across a gruesome sight. , Human body parts stripped of most of their meat were at the bottom scattered about, he looked back up and realized they chucked the dead bodies down here. , What they’ve done here is sickening, he could see tribal clothing on most of the remaining bodies. , The clothing was once colorful before being covered in blood and filth, looking around he was back in the forest. , Ignoring the bodies he carried on walking further north by following the sun, he knew the sun sat north thanks to the old Archer’s memories. , A hour passed as he was jumping over logs as he trekked through the jungle, it was very peaceful until more creepy screams were heard all around him. , Archer was getting annoyed by the creepy screams. , ”Meat!” , ”Food!” , ”Eat!” , Summoning his Cosmic Sword and blocking the incoming arrows, but as he was deflecting the arrows coming in front. , More came from behind, he managed to dodge most but was hit just under his scales. , ”Arghhh!” , Quickly turning around to see four more cannibals running towards him, casting Cosmic Sword twice as he parried a sword strike, and deflected another attack. , Stabbing one in the face as he blasted another one with a Plasma Shot, he could see more coming through the hole his magic caused. , Archer snapped the arrows head and pulled it out, he noticed more and more cannibals starting to appear around him. , Smiling like creeps, Archer got excited due to all the fighting but the pain was still there until Regeneration kicked in. , He weaved around the arrows the cannibals were firing at him, as he quickly Thunder Stepped behind the archers. , Plunging both black blades both in their necks. , They dropped hard to the floor under the shocked gazes of the others, Archer Thunder stepped to each cannibal killing them. , Archer killed another 17 before all the screaming stopped, looking around he saw limbs, blood and heads laying all over the place. , He looted all the hearts which in total was 15 due to the others being destroyed, Archer stored them and examined whatever intact bodies he could find. , They look like regular humans but with sharp nails, tribal tattoos, no hair and some weird scars all over their bodies. , After examining them he burnt everything with his Fire Missiles. , Looking at the smoke drifting up into the sky, he continued on with his journey, hoping not to run into the cannibals again. , After hours of walking the sun started to set as he got deeper into the jungle, the longer he travelled, the denser the foliage got. , As he walked past a massive tree his Aura-Detection went crazy with pings. , Casting Cosmic Sword as a pair of claws swung at him. , CHING!~ , He managed to block the surprise attack, but because of the force of the strike he was pushed backwards. , ‘Oh **.’ , Archer saw a humanoid looking creature, grey skin, about 5 foot tall with long claws, it was hanging from a branch staring at him with it’s pitch black eyes. , The beast gave him the shivers, it was skin and bones, it had long black hair with a mouth full off sharp yellow teeth. , ”Kekekekeke.” , It let out a creepy laugh as it pounced towards Archer, he cast Cosmic Shield causing the beasts to slam into the purplish barrier. , As it tried to get back up after hitting the barrier, Archer charged at it after dismissing the shield, the beast tried swiping at him. , He leapt over its skinny arm as he swung his blade separating the beasts arm from its body. , It howled in pain as Archer landed on the ground, he spun around and plunged the blade into the beasts head. , The thing went still, and he examined it. , It had the same clothes that the dead bodies from earlier had, but this beast creeped him out, he quickly tore out its heart. , After he was done with the bloody business he cast Cleanse on himself while storing the body and heart. , He looked around and climbed the nearest tree and perching himself on a branch, Archer pulled out a heart alongside a Honey brew and started eating. , A little while he burped as he finished all 24 hearts, 20 from the cannibals, 3 from the dinosaurs and 1 from the creepy looking humanoid. , He checked his status as he was sitting there. , ‘Status.’ , Experience: 7600/9000 𝑖𝘦.𝘤𝑜𝘮, SP: 0>24 , Archer jumped off the branch and continued on with his walk. , Two months passed with him traveling through the jungle, he got attacked many times by beasts and cannibals. , During one of the cannibal attacks he got really injured and had to hide away for a while due to the amount of them that appeared. , He managed to kill over 100 cannibals and a dozen forest beasts, but he couldn’t gather many hearts due to getting chased. , He was hiding up a tree like a scared cat and wondering how he can thin down the numbers of cannibals. , That’s when he got an idea for a spell, one that allows him to target multiple targets. , Spell Creation activated , He waited for the spell
