Chapter 2: I want the map feature.
“So I fell into that void, and now I’m in a game-like world. Or something like that?” (Ai)
“Oh, yeah, no.” (Tatsuro)
“Well, how else can you explain this? I mean, there is VR, but it’s not possible with today’s technology, right?” (Ai)
Then Ai made the motion of tapping the system screen with the back of her hand.
Unable to deny it, Tatsuro groaned, “Mmm.”
“Can’t Sonar on Prosthetic 4 do this? (Ai)
“No, Sonar or Shinobu Pindou, it’s not possible at this time.” (Tatsuro)
After that, they continued to argue and play with the system, discovering how to turn off the screen and start it up.
To my surprise. I just think that way. When I discovered this, I guessed that it was no longer Earth’s technology.
Then, Ai came with an idea.
“Why don’t you use the help function?” (Ai)
“Does the help cover things that aren’t related to the system? But it’s not like I’m going to lose anything, so I might as well give it a try.” (Tatsuro)
Tatsuro launched the help screen and placed his hand on it.
“Where am I? …..Impossible because the map function is not enabled. So how do I enable it? …..You need to get the map function from skills.” (Tatsuro)
“Did you get it?” (Ai)
“It said I need the map skill in order to know where we are” (Tatsuro)
“Oh, really? I don’t need GPS anymore!” (Ai)
“No, you do. …… Probably. Anyway, let’s start with our skills” (Tatsuro)
Touching the skills section of the initial screen, he was presented with a list of items including martial arts, magic, Health, specials, system expansions, and others.
He was tempted by the other items, but being patient for now, Tatsuro touched on the system expansion and found the map function among the several displayed.
“Oh, there it is. Let’s get it–oh.” (Tatsuro)
“Insufficient skill points.” (Tatsuro)
“How much do you need?” (Ai)
“Acquired skill points (9).” (Tatsuro)
“How much do you have now?” (Ai)
“That’s no good.” (Ai)
“That’s no good. ‘Help’, what should I do? ….. Skill points can only be obtained by raising your level, except in special ways. You can only get skill points by raising your level, and you get a flat rate of (3) points per level.” (Tatsuro)
“So, you just need to gain two more levels?” (Ai)
“I guess so.” (Tatsuro)
“Okay, then I’ll level up. Come on out, slime! Swoosh!” (Ai)
Skill: Jiu-Jitsu Lv.1 acquired.
Ai, who was doing some mysterious shadow boxing modo, suddenly stopped moving.
“Did the slime really come out!?” (Tatsuro)
“Hmmm, no, no.” (Ai)
“What is it then?” (Tatsuro)
Ai was looking at Tatsuro quizzically, but she just activated the system and confirmed what the voice had just said.
“Well, look at my status for a second.” (Ai)
Then, honestly from his own system, Tatsuro looked at Ai’s status.
Name: Ai Yashiki
Magic power: 1
Muscle strength: 151
Magic Power: 1
Magic Resistance: 1
Magic Control: 1
《Martial art God》 《Jiu-Jitsu Lv.1》
Remaining skill points: 3
“Are, your class is now Jiu-Jitsu , and your have more physical skills. Plus, your status is up slightly… what did you do?” (Tatsuro)
” I just did swoosh, swoosh, swoosh.” (Ai)
Acquired skill “Jiu-Jitsu Lv.2”.
“Oh, my level went up again.” (Ai)
“It’s true. …… And that move you just did was even better than your little boxing move.” (Tatsuro)
“Eh, really! Yatta.” (Ai)
As she got into the swing of things, Ai moved her body as if she was performing a martial arts demonstration, mixing in some kicking techniques at the end.
Her movements were almost beyond the realm of an amateur.
《Skill Jiu-Jitsu Lv.3 acquired.》
“Level up! Ne, ne, Tatsuro, do it too!” (Ai)
With Ai excited, Tatsuro looked around and picked up a handy branch and waved it around.
“What are you doing?” (Ai)
“I’m doing an experiment. I want you to wave this around like I just did.” (Tatsuro)
“Hmm? Well, okay. Hyaa.” (Ai)
《Skill: Stick art Lv.1 acquired.》
“Oh, now it’s stick art. Did you remember anything, Tatsuro?” (Ai)
“No, I don’t remember anything, but I’m pretty sure it’s because of the Martial God that you’re learning these skills so fast.” (Tatsuro)
Ai clapped her hands in satisfaction at his words.
“Ah. That’s why it’s so easy to learn. So, what about you, Tatsuro? Raising the level means fighting against something, right? Wouldn’t it be better to have some self-defense skills in case of emergency?” (Ai)
“I guess so. Then, if you are in the frontline, I’d like to use magic or something.” (Tatsuro)
“That’s not fair! If you have magic, I want to use it too!” (Ai)
“It’s fair, Ai can’t use magic because of your skills. Instead, you’re a martial arts cheat, so it’s fine.” (Tatsuro)
As I stroked Ai’s head, I used my other hand to touch the magic section of the system for reference.
Then, a number of attribute magic and skills that give you an advantage in using magic were displayed in a row.
“Let’s see, fire, water, wind, earth… these are the standard ones, right? Nature, lightning, and ice.” (Tatsuro)
“And what else?” (Ai)
As Ai was looking at me with sparkling eyes, I hurriedly looked at the rest of the list while relaxing my mouth.
“I don’t understand ……, I’ll ask ‘help’ later. Then there’s …… light, dark, gravity, Time and space… is there even such a thing!?” (Tatsuro)
“I didn’t understand the last one, but I wanted to try using light and dark magic. Let me know when you learn it!” (Ai)
“I will remember it. Ah, but light and darkness need higher skill points than others.
The rest of the skills has gone from (1) skill point to (11) skill points to get Lv.1.
──Wow, gravity is (500) and space-time is (1000), I don’t feel like taking it anymore.
When he had finished, Tatsuro looked up life, Curse, and solve in the help section.
As a result, he found out that Life is used for recovery and healing, Curse gives various effects to the target, and Solve is mainly used for analysis and detection.
“I think we should prioritize life, fire and water.” (Tatsuro)
“I’m afraid of getting hurt in the woods, fire is useful, and I’m afraid of running out of fresh water.
If you have (3), you can get all of Lv.1, right? By the way, almost all of the magic skill in my magic column was (999) skill points, so I couldn’t get it.” (Ai)
“Seriously, the martial art god skill is really something. Okay, let’s try and get some.” (Tatsuro)
“gii gii gii”.
“” Gii? “” (Ai) (Tatsuro)
It may sound like a horror story to say that there were only two people in this forest, but the voice of the other person was ……. In fact, an actual caterpillar.
It’s not uncommon for caterpillars to crawl in the forest, and normally you don’t need to worry about them that much – as long as they’re not more than 50 cm (19,69 inch) long.

Even if they are normal size they creep the heck out of me. They are just disgusting no matter the size.
