“Muqing! Don’t forget to lay a few Beast Traps while running!”
“I’m already doing that! I’ve almost used all of my MP now!”
“Didn’t you bring lots of potions?!”
“Why don’t you taste these weird potions yourself?!”

I caught the blue-colored potion Muqing tossed over.

Obtained Item: Basic MP Potion.
Recover 100 MP.

Only 100? I would need four of them to fully recover my MP?

With those thoughts, I raised my head and gulped down the potion.

An awful taste immediately filled my mouth.

“Cough, cough…! What the heck is this?!”
“That’s why I told you I don’t want to drink that thing!”

That potion tasted so awful, it was much more bitter than even traditional medicine.

“Does it really taste that bad?”

Seemingly unconvinced, Nangong, who was running beside us, retrieved a bottle from his own inventory and gulped it down after a moment of hesitation. After that, he immediately spat it out.

“Fudgeee! Is this thing made by mixing rhizome, gentian and the like?!”

From his tone, he seemed to be quite knowledgeable about traditional medicine?

“Forget it… if we get a chance later, let’s try out the higher-grade potions and see how they taste.”
“Good medicine tastes bitter, Muqing. You still have so much to learn…”
“I don’t want to hear that from you!”

…………I quickly shut my mouth.

The Boar King behind us was definitely the same one Nangong infuriated earlier. The moment we were discovered, it became outraged and went straight towards us, knocking down all the trees blocking its path.

It really is a beast with no intelligence! Doesn’t it know how to look after the flowers and grass?!

Be that as it may, we also didn’t have time to care about the flowers and grass when our own lives were in jeopardy.

Since it could knock down the trees without affecting its speed in the slightest, it could be assumed that it had enormous strength. And with that body size to boot…

No matter how you cut it, this thing shouldn’t have been so close to the newbie village! God, are you crazy?!

“How do we get away from that thing!” I shouted with a voice close to sobbing.

Sobbing? Why does that sound kind of cute? ……

“Judging from the current situation, there are two ways.”

Was it really Muqing who said that? Did I mishear?

“Method one, defeat it.”
“Right, how about we rule that out.”
“Then there’s only one other method left. Nangong, is that boss the kind that attacks first?”
“No way, it only started being hostile after I wounded it.”
“Then… wouldn’t it be fine if we just break away from the first guy who made it hostile?”

Muqing had a really devious smile on her right now.

This was the first time I knew my sister could come up with such an idea.

Naturally, it took a while for Nangong to lose sight of the big guy. He literally had to make a really big circle around the forest once.

By the time we met up again, his equipment was in a terrible state like he had just returned from a losing battle.

“Don’t laugh!”

With his black hair in an awful mess, he shouted at Muqing who was stifling a laugh.

However, when I turned around, a spacious road appeared before our eyes.

It was just like the time when we were searching for our teammates after a losing battle and caught sight of our enemy’s supply warehouse en route, that kind of indescribable feeling.

“The road?”
“…We’re not seeing things right?”
“Take a look at your status, did any weird signs appear?”
“It really is the main road! We’ve finally found the way back!”

Ten minutes later.

The three of us saw the wooden board at the entrance, as well as the buildings beyond.

Newbie village.

What’s the name of this village, you ask? Hah, even now I still have no idea what it’s called. The NPC wouldn’t tell me either. Every time I brought up a topic regarding the village’s name, they’d try to change the topic with various strange methods.

“We’re back…”

I plopped down on a bench at the streetside and rested my eyes.

Today was only the first day my sister and I wound up in this world.

I felt something was strange as soon as I woke up this morning, there was no way the sky in our original world could be this blue.

Following that was my sister’s strange attire, and the baffled expression she used to look at me.

And then… there’s nothing else, yup.

It took us half an hour to understand our situation. After that, we spent all the gold we had to buy potions and immediately set out to the forest to kill monsters.

However, at that time, we believed the forest near the newbie village should be a practice ground with no boss monsters…

To quote someone: Unexpected events can set you back or set you up. It’s all a matter of perspective.

Well, just from the result alone, we are actually still quite satisfied with this one full day of experience.

I started to quietly ponder over how we ended up getting drawn into this world.

I vaguely remembered that… the screen flashed brightly when I was fighting over the PC with my sister… We lost consciousness after that and by the time we woke up, we were already lying on the meadow of the newbie village.

That’s practically a second-rate script written by a second-rate author!

Well, whatever the case it may be, at least we’re no longer bound to that horrible world.

“Just so you know, I won’t look after you if you catch a cold by falling asleep here.”

While saying that, Muqing retrieved a thick robe from the inventory and used it to cover my body.

……Is she really treating me as the younger sister here? Regardless, this is quite warm.

“Is it even possible to catch a cold here?” I wrapped the robe around my body and asked. After glancing at the both of us, Nangong answered my question.

(Say no to content thief!)

“I arrived in this world two days ago. I slept on the street since I didn’t have a place to stay… and the next day, I woke up with a ‘common cold’ status ailment.”

“Wow… it completely follows the law of reality.”

Except in that reality, nobody would be able to use magic like me.
And obviously, a bona fide man wouldn’t turn into a loli…

“That, um… can I stick around with you girls?”

Nangong suddenly asked while raising his head to look at the stars, it was hard to guess what he was thinking.

On the other hand, Muqing got closer and hugged me tightly, “I don’t think we’re close enough to start dating yet…”

“That’s a misunderstanding! What I’m saying is that… can we operate as party members? Since I came to this world… I haven’t seen anyone else like us.”

After a long moment of silence, we finally nodded.

Notice: You have befriended Nangong Zhenxian.

Huh, this friends system is so smart!
