Is this a dream?

I quickly scanned the room.

Expensive-looking items filled the space, and the walls bore a style unlike any modern building.

Something seemed familiar.


Why does my voice sound like this?

My voice is typically high-pitched, but it was unmistakably deep now.

What's happening? My voice is really deep?”

I was stunned by the situation.

Not only had my surroundings changed, my voice had too.

A bad feeling washed over me.

My instincts, honed from years of being a nerd, were buzzing.

That's impossible.

This kind of thing only happens in games or novels, not real life.

But despite my logical thoughts, my body acted on its own.

I moved towards a mirror on the wall.

-Thump! Thump!

“Why do I look like this?!!”

Seeing my reflection, I gasped.

Dark brown hair, slightly wide eyes with a hint of fatigue, a pronounced nose bridge.
Proportions any model would envy.

Based on looks alone, this face would attract many women.

But that wasn't the problem.
This face was the extra villain's from the game I was just playing.

This has to be a dream.
A dream.


Suddenly, the door flew open.
My eyes darted to the entrance.

The woman who entered had her face covered like a militant, only her eyes and nose visible.
She quickly approached me.

“Sir Cain, you need to leave.
If you stay, you'll die.”

“What, why?”

Die? Me? Why?

Her abrupt entrance and warning further unsettled me.
She spoke again, her voice trembling.

“Sir Cain, an intruder has bypassed most of our hideout's traps.”

it's a dream, right?”

It has to be.
The current situation was too bizarre to accept.

Kidnapped to an unfamiliar place, a militant woman warning me of death – none of this made sense.

I couldn't accept it.

The moment I did, it would mean I was no longer on Earth.

“Sir Cain, this isn't a dream.”


Before I could recover from my shock,

Someone else entered the room.

finally caught you.”

Cain! I'll hold him off! You need to run!!”

Kim Soo-yong?!

The newcomer was Kim Soo-yong, the game's protagonist destined for a tragic fate.
His jet black hair and eyes, and handsome Korean features, were unmistakable.

His character wasn't particularly good or bad.
But now, his eyes brimmed with the intent to kill.

Whether this was a dream or reality, I had to run!!

I took the woman's advice, opened a rear door, and bolted.


The clash of combat echoed behind me.

Could she hold him off?

It seemed unlikely.
In the story, David Von Cain falls to Kim Soo-yong early on.

It's essentially a tutorial.

Even if I wasn't in control, I remember this part being so simple that blind button mashing was enough.

So, her chances of holding him back were slim.

“Pant! Pant! Why am I out of breath?”

I hadn't run far, but I was already gasping for air.

I stopped to catch my breath.

“Pant! Pant!”

“Done running?”

A voice, dripping with murderous intent, came from behind me.

-Squish! Squish!

The sound of his steps grew louder.
I needed to run.
If I stayed, I'd die.

But despite my logical thoughts, my body refused to move.

Thump, thump, thump, thump.

My heart hammered in my chest.
I couldn't tell if it was due to the run or the threat of impending death.

My head turned back mechanically.

Kim Soo-yong stood there, his body drenched in blood.
He spoke, his voice ice-cold and devoid of emotion.

“So, a schoolmate was messing around in the underworld.”

He didn't hesitate to plunge his sword into my stomach.


“May your death be as painful as it gets.”



His words faded under the onslaught of pain.
My stomach felt like it was on fire.
It seemed like all my blood vessels were rupturing.

This wasn't a dream.

But that realization came too late.
The wound I had now couldn't be healed.


I wanted to scream my pain but lacked the strength.
It felt so unjust.

Why was I, an innocent bystander, suffering?

I was forced into this body.
Why should I die for no reason?

If I had done even one thing Cain did, this might not feel so unjust.

The injustice was so stark that I bit down hard on my lower lip.

I couldn't distinguish between the blood from my bitten lip and the wound in my stomach.

Damn it! If only I had stayed calm!!

The regret was immense.

If I had kept my cool, I could have survived with the woman's help.

…But regrets were useless now.

My vision blurred.
At the same time, my phone started to ring.



My sight was too blurry to see clearly.
However, my seasoned otaku instincts were telling me something.

My instincts were telling me not to question anything here, just to accept it.

With all my remaining strength, blood trickling from my mouth, I managed to utter,


With those words, everything went dark.

Meanwhile, at that very moment.

Kim Soo-yong was lost in thought.

What to tell the guild master and the client…

He had taken a job to make some money during the academy break.
The job wasn't about causing trouble, just a simple investigati
