Chapter 1: Meeting the Goddess

Hi. My name is Melissa Speed. I am twenty-six years old and today is the worst day of my life. The day started the same as every day, I got out of bed, meanwhile, my boyfriend of five years kept sleeping.

I have absolutely no time for hobbies, like reading or playing video games because Joey - my boyfriend- lost his job. So I had to work overtime to compensate for the loss of income.

I stumbled to my bathroom mirror to brush my teeth. My reflection, a woman with gold-blond chin-length hair, big forest green eyes, and white skin is glaring back at me.

As I looked at my watch I noticed that I was late, so I ran out of the apartment and took the subway without eating. I hate it when I don't have enough time to eat breakfast.

So here I was rushing to my dead-end job only to be told that I was getting fired because I was late one time too often. Perfect. No breakfast and now this. So I took my things and went home again.

So here we are... I am standing in the doorway of my bedroom and I can't believe what I am seeing. I mean my boyfriend is not sleeping anymore, so I guess this could count as one positive aspect of the situation. But he is having sex with my best and only friend Bethany. What the fuck? Seriously?

[Joey] Oh, yeah, Beth you are so good.

Oh my god, I think I am going to vomit. And why didn't they notice that someone is standing at the door? What do I do? Yell? Cry? Start throwing things at them? No, I don't want to give them the satisfaction to get a rise out of me.

Ugh..they are still at it. Ok, that's it. I can't take more of their moaning. I go to the kitchen and fill a bottle full of cold water, pound back to the bedroom and douse those two unfaithful bitches with water.

[Melissa] There. That should cool you down.

Joey and Bethany look up at me with fright distorted faces. Now they see me. Good. But what do I do now? I mean I don't have anything to say to them. Actually I don't want to see them and so I turn around and storm out the apartment door. I would really like to kick Joey out of there but the rental contract has Joey`s name on it. Shit. Now I am jobless, homeless, single and don't have a best friend anymore. I can only repeat myself: What the fuck?

As I was escaping the apartment, they started yelling my name and tried to stop me from leaving. They began to apologize, but what are they expecting? That I turn around and tell them everything is ok, that it doesn't hurt that they betrayed me? Hastily I run from their voices, out the apartment door, down the staircase, and storm out of the building. In my distress, I am not looking at traffic and of course, a car runs me over. Sure, why not, what do you expect of the shittiest day of your life?

As I dizzily opened my eyes, lying on the street, the man whose car hit me is talking.

[Unkown Man] Please hang on. The ambulance is on its way. Why would you simply walk out the street? Do you have a deathwish? I mean you should check for cars before crossing even my five-year-old daughter knows that!

Oih, Really? Yes, sure blame the victim! How much bad luck do I have today? I mean he hit me with his car and now that I can't run away he tries to lecture me? What the hell?

The ambulance arrives at long last and takes me to the emergency room. At least I don't have to listen to this little shit anymore.

As I try breathing through my anger, my world is starting to feel a little wobbly. Damn that feels weird. Well, look at those black dots. Yepp, I am losing consciousness. Over and Out.

And that's when the shit really hits the fan!

As I crawl my way back to consciousness, I notice that I am standing on my feet. These hospital rooms sure look different than I remember. It's just an open white space.

[VOICE] HELLO MORTAL. I AM THE GODDESS L...

[Me] *laughing*... I am sorry but...*chuckling*... I was looking where the loud and intimidating voice was coming from. At first, I couldn't find you but then I looked down...*I start laughing again*... a child...I am sorry but the contrast is hilarious..pffff hahaha.

Standing in front of me is a really beautiful child: her silver hair reaches her ankles, her very big blues eyes are looking at me, she is wearing a cute white dress and has no shoes on.

[Voice] (*mumbles* I am sorry that I am only a child, I mean I am only 50 million years old, I will be a grown-up soon... )*coughs* How I look is irrelevant! Listen to me. I am here to present a proposal to you. A once in a lifetime chance.

[Me] *laughing* Ok. I am sorry. ... *laughs*... so...sorry. *I clear my throat* So you were saying...?

[Voice] As I was rudely interrupted by you: I am the Goddess of Life and my name is Lavi. I am looking for someone who can save my people and the spell I cast to find the savior led me to you.

[Me] You are a Goddess? Am I still sleeping?

I ask suspiciously. I mean what do you expect? Who in their right mind would believe that this isn't a dream but reality?

[Lavi] I don't have the time to convince you. I am not in my dimension and as soon as earths' god of life finds out I am here, I will be sent back to my home. So shut up and listen. Then you need to give me your answer. I need consent before I can do anything. I mean what do you have to lose? Worst-case scenario nothing happens.

[Me] Woah my subconscious is really convincing. Ok, I am listening.

I figure there can't be any harm in listening even if I am certain that I am dreaming.

[Lavi] So the Goddess of Death cursed my planet and now there is an apocalypse going on. She created a virus who turned most of the population into mindless zombies with animal traits, the ones who didn't lose their minds got an upgrade and were turned Find authorized novels in Webnovel, faster updates, better experience, Please click <a href="https://www.webnovel.com/book/apocalypse-here-i-come!_16330665305585205/meeting-the-goddess_43898674807373093">www.webnovel.com/book/apocalypse-here-i-come!_16330665305585205/meeting-the-goddess_43898674807373093</a> for visiting.

[Me] Woah! Stop. Stop. Apocalypse? Seriously? And what do you mean turned?

[Lavi] As I was saying before you so rudely interrupted me AGAIN, they were turned into were-animals. I couldn't stop the release of the virus, but I added my personal twist to it, in the hopes to rescue my planet and to strengthen the population. I had hoped to turn them all into wereanimals but the virus was too potent, so a lot of humans didn't live through the transformation and became mindless were-zombies. Unfortunately, the remaining were-humans are losing the fight against the zombies. So I started looking for a someone who would help my people.

[Me] Wait...What?... Why would the Death Goddess curse your planet?

After I asked my question, I was hoping that my suspicion is wrong but I can see how her cheeks turn red.

[Lavi] *mumbles* I mean I only laughed at her a little, who could guess that she would take it to heart

[Me] What you laughed at her? Why?

[Lavi] ... okay I´ll tell you. It was during one of the assemblies of gods. She came through the door and stumbled, so I laughed at her.

[Me]... That was all? How old is she? Five? I mean ok I get it, getting laughed at is not a nice experience but to condemn a whole planet because of it?

[Lavi] No, Death is as old as time.

I gaped at her. What the fuck? As old as time? Holy hell that is old.

[Me] Never mind that. Why the hell should I consent to go to a world where the chance that I die is almost one hundred percent? I mean once I am bitten, I am almost certainly dead or am I wrong?

[Lavi] Yes you are wrong, the virus is airborne so you don't need to get bitten.

Ok. Now I know she is nuts. I stared at her gobsmacked.

[Lavi] haha. You should see your dumb look. Yes, the virus is airborne but I would send you there already transformed so you needn't be worried, silly. Gods and Goddess' can't walk among the mortals. And here is the loophole I intend to exploit: To get you to Lavos I have to drag your body through the Aether, that energie would be stored in your body and theoretically, it should be enough to help transform you in a baby goddess. Gods are born and not made so they have to obey a lot of rules. You, on the other hand, will be transformed and you don't belong to our pantheon so you should be exempt.

[Me] Theoretically? That word does not instill a lot of confidence in me... What kind of goddess would I be? Would I be powerful?

[Lavi] Are you dumb? Of course, you would be the goddess of transformation, what else could you be? You will be literally transformed into a goddess. I can't give you power. It doesn't work this way. I can only turn you into a goddess to get more powerful you need to collect worshippers.

[Me] Worshippers? I don't want to be worshipped! Is it not enough to believe in me? Must they worship me?

[Lavi] You are a strange creature *Lavi looks at me funny* What woman doesn't love to be worshipped? But to answer your question yes believing does count as worshipping.

[Me] But how am I going to keep everyone safe? If they are dying then I'll need someplace that is zombie-free.

[Lavi] Hmmm. You are right... *thinking* ... Okay, yes, I can grant you the city building assistant. With the assistant, you can build a city that has a magic barrier around it. So are you coming to my world? Please be quick. I don't have much time left before I am discovered!

[Me] Are you n ... *coughs* I mean are you serious? I wouldn't survive the first day there. Basically you just said that I'll be as good as powerless before I have some believers, am I right?

[Lavi] Yes you are correct. What do you want?

[Me] If you really want me to go then I`ll need something like instant mastery...I mean I won't have the time to train or am I wrong? And I'll also need some sort of guide function, something like Wikipedia? I know nothing about your world so something that could give important information about where I am going.

[Lavi] I am not able to grant you instant mastery but I can give you a genius-level weapon talent so the problem should be solved. A guide function...hmmm no not a function but I can give you Vargas. Yeah, Vargas can be your guide. *claps* Perfect. Now, are you going to rescue my world Lavos?

What is a Vargas? hmm, it doesn't matter as long as it can give me information everything else is irrelevant.

[Me] I can't believe I am considering this but today I lost everything that was important to me. So ... *thinking* ... wait a moment! is this just coincidence or did you have something to do with my shitty day?

[Lavi] No, no, no! I am hoping to work with you to save Lavos so I wouldn't start our relationship based on subterfuge. The only thing I did was to make your wounds more severe so that you would lose consciousness otherwise we couldn't talk. If you say no I will heal you and continue my search. But if you say yes I will take you with me to my world to stand against the apocalypse.

Ok, Mel, think. Here is a once in a lifetime chance. I mean I could become a GODDESS. I always dreamed of adventuring, this could be my dream come true! But a zombie apocalypse? Dying, is dying even a thing? gods and goddesses? Hmmm sounds really dangerous, but what do I have to lose? As the saying goes: Nothing ventured nothing gained. I always felt that there should be more to life than working a boring job until your pension. If I am not dreaming, no, even if I am dreaming I will take her up on her offer.

[Me] Apocalypse? Here I come!
