At the back of the goblins was a shaman casting spells at the group as he was directing the others between spells. , The adventurers consisted of two knights, one girl, and one boy, a girl dressed in a healer’s outfit, and a Moon Elf archer who wore leather armor that covered most of her body apart from her midriff and legs. 𝑖𝘦.𝑐ℴ𝘮, She seemed to value speed over protection. , And lastly, there was a tall and muscular human mage with a bald head standing at the back casting protective magic over the group. , The two human knights looked exactly like each other, blood-red hair, blue eyes, and milk-white skin. , The girl was slender and tall with hawk-like eyes, just like the boy. They wore plate-like armor that covered most of their bodies apart from the head and hands. , Archer thought they were twins. , The healer had auburn colored hair and yellow eyes, she was pretty average looking for an elf, and the female knight was much prettier than her. , But he realized how beautiful the moon elf was. He couldn’t take his eyes off her. , She had beautiful brown skin and long silver hair tied into a ponytail that dangled down her back. , A pair of red eyes that sucked the soul from anyone who got close and pointy elf ears. , She wasn’t tall at all, she’s about 5’5 and thick in all the right places. , ‘She’s beautiful.’ , Archer shook his head to concentrate on the fight. , He saw they were doing well against the goblins until even more appeared behind them. , The bald mage turned around and started casting fireballs at them to hold back the incoming horde. , The elf looked back and then covered the mage, shooting arrows with precision. , They were about to be overrun when Archer intervened. , ‘Let’s go.’ , Pointing his small hand at the incoming goblins. , ‘Void blast.’ , Woosh!~ Woosh!~ , Two Void blasts shot out and crashed into the unaware goblins. , The group of adventurers stopped what they were doing and looked towards the explosion, seeing a big dust cloud. , Then a white-haired boy dressed in black and covered in blood rushed out of the cloud and slashed the still-standing goblins. , Archer danced around wildly slashing any goblin he encountered while laughing his head off. , ”Hahahahahahahahah, die beasts. DIE!” , He had no real skill beyond what the old memories showed him. , Also when on earth Archer was learning to wield a sword as well. , As the adventurers finished killing the goblins they were fighting, he finished his goblin slaughter after killing the last seven. , That was until a fire blast smashed into the right side of Archer’s body, sending him flying. , ”Arghhh!~” , The dark elf saw this and aimed her bow at the beast who attacked the boy. , She released a mana arrow that flew through the air puncturing the shaman’s head. , It dropped to the ground dead, and that’s when she heard the knights coming from behind her. , ”Where did that boy go?” , Turning to them while thinking. , ‘Did they not see him get blown away?’ , Pointing in the direction Archer flew off in. , ”He flew off in that direction, let’s go check.” , They all tried finding him until a shout was heard. , ”Over here!” , The dark elf found him first and called the others over. , When they arrived he was lying on the floor staring up at the sky with a smile on his burnt face. , He sat up quickly and looked directly at the dark elf and asked her name. , ”What’s your name?” , The elf narrows her eyes before replying. , ”That’s your first concern, not the fact that the right side of your body is pretty badly burned!” , Archer looked at his right side and realized it was burned from his face to his waist. , His normally white skin was now pitch black and burning. , ”Oh **.” , The pain slammed into him making him lay back down again. , He was in agony. , Although the healer tried to heal him, her spells weren’t working. , The pain started hurting so much more that he nearly fainted, but just as he was about to pass out. , A notification popped up. , Regeneration Learned , Archer and everyone else noticed his charred skin slowly repairing itself. , Amid the pain, he heard gasps and shocked voices, but he was unable to understand them clearly. , The pain subsided slowly as his regeneration kicked in. , After a while he was healed, even his burnt hair was back to normal. , Archer stood up under the shocked gazes of the others. , When he saw that his pants and shirt were burned, he changed into new clothes. , After putting on a set of fresh clothes, he looked straight at the dark elf and repeated the same question with a big smile. , ”See I’m fine! Now will you tell me your name?” , The female knight snickered as she whispered to the bald mage. , ”She has a new fan.” , But as they spoke to each other, they all suddenly got a panicked look on their faces and sprinted off back to where the fight occurred. , All of them except the dark elf ran back. , ”Who did they forget Hehe?” , She looked at him with narrowed eyes. , ”Why are you laughing? It’s creepy.” , ”Because they were distracted by my presence, you guys forgot your friend who was knocked out.” , He finished the sentence with a wide smile as he looted the seven hearts. , After Archer was finished he turned to the elf and smiled. , ”My name is Archer a F ranked adventurer, well I joined yesterday and this was my first quest, but I got sidetracked Hehe.” , She looks at this strange boy who isn’t all there upstairs. , ”My name is Talila Ashmoon, we were looking for a goblin camp, what quest did you take?” , ”A wild dog quest, but so far all I’ve found are goblins and you guys” , Talila looked at this strange boy and noticed his twitching ears poking through his scruffy hair. , She stares into his bright violet eyes. , With his messy hair tied up hair, she barely noticed the lumps on the sides of his head. , ‘What kind of elf is he? he is not a high or dark elf, maybe a forest elf?’ , She shook her head. , ”What kind of Elf are you?” , Archer looks confused while answering. , ”I’m not an Elf, my father is human and my mother is dragon-kin.” , Talila’s eyes widened at the mention of dragon-kin then she spoke sarcastically. , ”You’re a dragon-kin, I haven’t seen one in years due to the last Draconic-Human war and now one is standing in front of me hunting wild dogs in the Forsaken Forest?” , He looks at Talila with an expression of thought on his face. , According to the previous Archer, dragon-kin are nomadic people who travel across the continent looking for a suitable home. , Since theirs was taken by the Salona Kingdom up north when they lost in the Draconian-Alliance war over 20 years ago. , His mother met his father when she was hired as a mercenary, then later married him as his father’s 2nd wife. , ”Well yes, I am a dragon-kin, and I am just doing my first quest when I stumbled upon you getting attacked so I thought I’d help out.” , When the archer finished speaking, he smiled at her. , A/N – Leave some comments, power stones, and gifts.
