I spotted a rabbit who was lying lazily under the shade of the tree. So, I tried to head there as stealthily as possible while holding the long sword I made and slashed…..
However I simply hit the ground as the rabbit vanished from its spot as I was suddenly hit in the back by the now fur-ball like rabbit.
It wasn't too fast to notice as my constitution stat was high enough to do that, the only problem was that I had no sense of combat to begin with, I wasn't able to react according to the situation.
Although my stats were about 3~4 times a normal person would be which were quite on the high side, it was just like having a high spec car but not being able to drive.
Nonetheless, I had to work it out somehow. If I wanted to survive in this game, that is.
I was hit several times while standing there as I followed the rabbit with my eyes. Since I couldn't react fast enough, I did what I was good at, making out the rabbit's pattern of movement!
I observed it while enduring its hits which weren't very painful. After all, a fast rabbit was still a rabbit, while I wasn't just an ordinary man either. its movement map was being drawn in my mind as time went on.
I put the sword aside as I picked the spear on my back. After standing still for a while, I suddenly stabbed with the spear through the air.
The rabbit couldn't even express its surprise before its heart was pierced through, as a small amount of dark red mist was adsorbed to the orb that I hung around my wrist. the essence orb which was as small as a pearl had its color changed into a faint shade of red. But this, was only the start!
After experiencing it once, I started to adapt faster as I continued searching for rabbits and hunting them. though I was only able to find 9 more by the end of the day, today's hunt could be considered quite good.
I was finally able to develop the slightest bit of battle awareness, as I only got hit twice by the last rabbit I hunted.
[You have received the title 'Rabbit Hunter']
[Achievement 'Hunting 100 rabbits' recorded]
[You have received 1 bonus stat point for your achievement]
- rabbits are intimidated by you.]
After hunting rabbits for a whole week, I could read their pattern almost immediately as my efficiency increased.
But most importantly, I was finally able to control my body's strength. although I weren't able to fight at top condition, I became able to overpower a rabbit whose main ability was agility, unlike my first day at hunting.
I was able to receive a stat point as I hunted 100 rabbits, I was wondering if it would happen if I hunted 100 more? But I had to abolish this idea I received the title that had the currently negative effect of intimidation.
In any case, it was time to stop as I didn't want to break the ecosystem by over-hunting. Besides, who knew? that title may come handy in the future.
I returned to the cave I used as a shelter during my stay in the periphery, I had found it as I chased a rabbit slightly deeper into the forest in the second day after my arrival.
It was time to have another sumptuous meal of crispy roasted rabbit meat. Unfortunately, I wasn't that appreciative, as I already grew sick from eating the same meal for the past few days.....
Enjoy the rabbits!
