2 New life (2)

Life in that hut was really something else. While it was embarrassing, Billy got used to doing nothing but pooping, pissing, sleeping, and eating all day and all night. The only thing he didn't get used to it was the sounds that his parents made at night when they were working on making his siblings. Fortunately, there wasn't much light inside the hut, so he never saw anything that would traumatize him for life. Putting jokes aside, Billy probably had the same mental age as his parents, despite that, he still would feel weird in seeing them in action.

Regardless, after a few months, when Billy was bored out of his mind, he realized that there was more to his RPG system than he had imagined… a lot more. When he focused his eyes on the HUD, he found this.

Billy - Lv 00 - 0/10 EXP

HP: 05/05

MP: 05/05

SP: 05/05

Strength: 01

Speed: 01

Magic: 01

Endurance: 01

Dexterity: 01

Status Points: 00

Skill List: Mana/EXP conversion Lv ∞, Exp Master Lv ∞

Skill Points: 00

Billy also had status and skill list. However, what was shocking were his skills… it was weird that he had skill, much less at that level... it didn't have a level actually, but it was weird nonetheless. Billy didn't know what those skills could do, but he learned once he focused his eyes on them.

Mana/EXP conversion: it grants you the power to convert mana into experience for you or for all kinds of targets.

Exp Master: it grants you the power to increase the level of all things by using them constantly, be it objects or living things.

"Interesting… truly intriguing," Billy thought.

While Billy was busy seeing all that, his mother was giggling while poking his cheeks since he was staring at nothing. After a while, Billy noticed that, but then he concluded that it was fine.

"Come to think of it, I still can't understand what mom says… only my name is obvious. I guess that explains why I didn't get a language skill."

Putting that aside, Billy decided to test his first skill since he didn't have anything to test the second. In the end, a single thought had been enough to transfer his MP to his experience… Unfortunately, the rate was one to one. So, even when Billy used all his mana, he didn't level up. Not to mention, using all his energy exhausted his mind and made him fall asleep, and he woke up only the next day.

Fortunately, Billy's MP was full again, so he had the chance to use Mana/EXP conversion yet again. Still, he only used one point to see how long he had to wait before his mana could be full again… he had to wait for one hour.

"I see… I guess this isn't so bad… still, is this a common thing here, or am I the only one with the system?"

If Billy was the only one with that, he would worry. It would be like a sign of the universe telling him to become someone lazy who doesn't work hard to obtain things. After all, one didn't have to be a genius to understand how stupidly powerful those two skills were…

Congratulations! You have leveled up.

You obtained 05 status points.

You obtained 05 skill points.

The list of skills available have been actualized.

Billy - Lv 01 - 00/20 EXP

HP: 05/05

MP: 05/05

SP: 05/05

Strength: 01

Speed: 01

Magic: 01

Endurance: 01

Dexterity: 01

Status Points: 05

Skill List: Mana/EXP conversion Lv ∞, Exp Master Lv ∞

Skill Points: 05

Billy thought that his status would change, but everything was the same aside from the points he gained. It was hard to say if that was a good thing or not. Nevertheless, when Billy focused his eyes on the skill points available, a new window opened.

Language Skill: 02 skill points

Analyze: 03 skill points

Bash: 05 skill points.

"I see… the skills available only appear if I have enough skill points to acquire them. I need to be careful since I must have a limit of how many times I can level up…"

Language skill was something that Billy needed no matter what. Analyze was probably something that he needed to see the status of objects. As for Bash, which was an offensive skill, he didn't need it since there was no way a toddler would be able to fight. He confirmed all that after reading their descriptions. Nevertheless, Billy even decided to save his status points because he didn't know how they would affect his young body. If they really improve his body, then he might get unnecessary attention.

Once he learned those, Billy realized that Analysis consumed one point of his mana to be used. Language Skill didn't need anything. Still, even after acquiring it, Billy couldn't understand his mother…

"Something seems weird here… I thought babies were supposed to learn things pretty fast."

Language Skill - Lv 00 - 0/10 Exp

Once Billy checked the skill again, he noticed that the skill was at level one and even needed the same amount of experience as him to level up. Maybe he could make it level up without using any skill and do so naturally, but that would be a pain. So, for the next two days, Billy focused on making that skill level up. He could make it level up naturally once he starts to understand some words, it was too much of a pain to hear everyone talking and he couldn't understand anything aside from proper names.
