Two rays of golden light descended upon Rui’s body, as the sheer amount of experience gained shot him up from level 12 to level 14, with 68% to the next level. The entire experience from the Spider Queen had been given to him alone, since the rest of the team had perished.

Ting! Congratulations for successfully completing the final stage of the Lost Mines. The Lost Mines will be open as a open dungeon. Do you wish to reveal your name?”
The next system notification caused Rui to furrow his brow slightly. Although he had revealed some of his abilities to the public previously, that was because it was restricted to only his particular newbie village. The actual amount of people who had witnessed him killing Greedy Wolves and his team of five were extremely limited, only about a hundred or so. Furthermore, before players changed classes, there were many system functions they were unable to use, including the video recording or screenshot functions. As a result, he was still relatively unknown to the mass public. As an assassin, he was used to keeping a low profile. As a result, his choice was clear.

“Do not reveal my details!”

Ting! All players in the world, please note! All players in the world, please note!

Three continuous system notifications deafened the ear. 《Kismet》 had just started for three days, and this was the first time that players had seen a worldwide system notification. To most of the players, they were still tangling with rabbits, wild chickens, grey wolves and boars. For them, instances and BOSSes were considered things far off in the future.

《Kismet》 had experienced an unbelievable explosive growth, causing the various small newbie villages to be extremely crowded. In terms of mobs, it was very difficult to actually kill them as they were highly sought after. As soon as they spawned, they would be instantly slain by the legion of waiting newbies. In order to snatch mobs, many fights broke out. Now that a dungeon instance was open, it would greatly improve this situation. After all, a dungeon instance would allow countless of parties to enter without conflict.

Rui did not have the time or effort to bother about the outside world which was bustling from the news. After he had replied some private messages from Yezekael and the rest, he took the darkened Angel’s Heart in his hands. Looking at the three “K, L, H” letters, his heart was rather gloomy.

A faint line shone, and the shadowy figures of Kris, Ronnie and Halief appeared in front of Rui.

“Our wish has been fulfilled, and our souls have found redemption. It is time for us to move on to where we belong.” Kris looked at Rui gently, revealing the faint smile that she had shown when they first met. “Thank you, Sly Hand!”

Rui was silent.

“Courageous, Fearless, resolute, loyal honest and direct… You have defended the light… You, are a true knight!” Ronnie smiled and said.

“No, I’m not a knight!” Rui shook his head.

“Who says you’re not?” Ronnie smiled, pointing to his heart and said: “Inside here, you are one!”

“… We have to leave now, and go to where we belong. Please help me tell my father that I am sorry. I love him!” Ronnie’s expression was rather sentimental.

“I will!” Rui nodded.

“I have nothing much left to say, but I do want to say this to you. Thank you!” Halief said with a bright smile on his mouth.

Rui’s mouth twitched upward, and he nodded his head gently, expressing his acceptance of the gratitude.

“You will become a fine warrior in the future, perhaps even a great person.” Halief said with a solemn look on his face. He then smiled and waved at Rui: “Goodbye then, my friend! Help me tell Uncle Howell that I am sorry for stealing his precious stash of Skill books in the past.”

*TL – Uncle Howell is the village appraiser that appeared in C37.

“Goodbye our friend. May your life be happy!”

The three smiled and waved at Rui, as their figures slowly dimmed and vanished.

As the white light subsided, the cave resumed its original frightful darkness. Kris, Ronnie and Halief had left for good.

It was a parting by death!

This was something that Rui had witnessed many times in his life, but one of the rare times that it had touched his heart. A sentimental feeling invaded his body, entering his heart.

They might have left, but the feelings and memories remained.

A beautiful chance encounter, no matter how beautiful, was still a chance encounter. In the end, this was all according to the loom of fate. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. At the very least, it was a beautiful experience, a beautiful memory that Rui would not forget. The happenings in this short period of time would be assigned as memory, forever etched into his mind. In this world, there are many things that cannot be forgotten, like that brilliant light from the Angel’s Heart.

Kris, Ronnie, Halief, they had really left!

Rui lowered his head, looking at the once-bright Angel’s Heart in his hand. By now, it had lost its lustre, and was just like an ordinary rock, though the three letters were still as clear as ever.

Heaving a soft sigh, Rui kept the Angel’s Heart in his back. Shaking his head, he recovered his feelings and started to keep his loot.

After picking up all the items that the Spider Queen Elise had dropped, as well as what Yezekael and the rest had dropped, Rui turned and started using the Gathering Technique on her corpse.

Ting! Sorry, your gathering technique has failed. You have not gathered any items.
You gain experience in the gathering technique.

……
Constant failure notifications rang out, causing Rui’s head to ache a little. His gathering technique was just too low level, and he couldn’t even gather anything from this high level BOSS.

Rui comforted himself. The harder it is to gather, the more valuable it must be!

Ting! Sorry, your gathering technique has failed. You have not gathered any items.
You gain experience in the gathering technique.
