FPS 108

The werewolf kept its distance whilst being wary of my MPS 11-12. The pale light emanating off its left hand that was being held over its wound seemed to be healing magic. Readying my ballistic shield on my left hand, I turned off FLIR mode and my vision returned to normal so I could clearly see the werewolf now that it wasn’t invisible

The werewolf’s upper body was mostly naked… If not for the fur covering its body. The fur itself was probably a white silver… Yet no matter how I looked at it, it looked like a dirty lab mouse. Its lower body was covered by a pair of dirty, shredded jean-like pants, muscles swelled to the point where the pants themselves seemed ready to give. 

At its rear, a large dirty tail with the same fur color as the rest of its body. The head of the humanoid was just a wolf, with no human features, other than it was attached to a humanoid body. Its eyes stained red with madness and its fangs visible as it growled. This fellow… Why was he so dirty?

Did it not have a habit of bathing like the others —- Ah… Is it because it lives here? No, why am I comparing it with an actual living creature? But then again, I didn’t know just what manner of creature the Labyrinth Master was. 

A closer look at the map revealed that there were more rooms beyond this throne. I didn’t want to assume things, but could those rooms be its living quarters? 

“VuRuaaaaaaaaaaa!” 

The werewolf roared as it charged forward, saliva sprinkling as its body was nearly touching the floor. Once again, I blocked its claw swipe with my shield, lined up the crosshairs for a counter-attack; but the werewolf had already jumped to my left, disappearing from my line of sight. 

Its fast — but its attacks were too linear. And it was clearly wary of my gun. Was the damage on its flank that bad, or did it simply acknowledge it as something dangerous? The shield’s durability also went down by 10% with just that one swipe. I couldn’t afford to prolong this fight. 

Placing the AA-12 on top of the shield, I chased the wolf with my crosshairs. In an attempt to predict its movement, I deviated from the target and shot a little further forward. Then, I fired off 2-three shot stream.

However, the werewolf didn’t stop and instead, raised two of its fingers almost at the same time I fired. The next moment, a stone wall rose up in front of me. It was a Stonewall spell! 

So, it was smart enough to use magic to defend itself against my shots! 

I pushed away the urge to curse and opted to close the distance by slide-jumping into the wall immediately after losing my line of sight. If the other side kept moving, I needed to be just as mobile. In FPS games, players needed to take advantage of high mobility movies aside from just shooting from fixed positions. Catching your opponents off guard was an important ability for any FPS player! 

I vaulted over the stone wall immediately, promptly aiming down the sights where I expected the boss to be and — It’s not there?! No, it might’ve gone invisible again, either with [Shadow Run], or [Shadow Walk].

Turning on FLIR mode, I quickly searched for its heat signature. I quickly found the werewolf still behind the stone wall. 

“How naive!” 

Without hesitation, I lined up my sight and pulled the trigger, showering the wolf in a hail of FRAG-12 from above. I could see the rounds detonation on its head and leg. 

“Gyaaa!”

I jumped down, sandwiching the werewolf between me and the wal. Immediately afterward, I raised my shield and rushed ahead, smashing the monster against the wall. Its face was distorted in pain. Meanwhile, I brought the crosshairs to its face but the stonewall disappeared before the slugs could explode in its face, allowing its body to fall bodward.

“Tsk!” 

I clicked my tongue after the beast’s body disappeared again. Before I could find it again, a strong kick pushed my shield back. Although that much force wasn’t enough to faze me, I was still pushed back until I hit the wall behind me.

“Come on! I’ll definitely kill you!” 

The auto-translation feature deciphered the werewolf’s growl as it got back up. 

“~~~, ~~, ~~~, StoneSpear!” 

As it finished chanting and cried its name, two sharp conical objects jutted from the stone floor and pinned me to the wall.  

“What the?!” 

The two sharp stalagmites prevented me from any lateral movements. Meanwhile, the werewolf stood before me. Only a few meters away —

I tried to line up the cross hairs, but it swiped my right arm before I could shoot. Not only did it mess up my aim, it also wounded the arm. 

“ [Wolf Spear] !”

It was a different attack that the wolf hadn’t used before, but it managed to pierce through the ballistic shield and deep into my abdomen.

“Guaa!”

Intense pain ran through my whole body like lightning and my grip on the shield loosened. Looking at me as my face distorted in pain, the werewolf’s expression, who’d been filled with anger, gradually changed into a look of excitement. 

“Guaa!” 

The werewolf stabbed its hand into my abdomen, then pulled out something before it jumped away…

Ha…Haha… So this body still had internal organs…?


Which organ was it that it took? The liver?

Down on one knee, I held the gaping hole in my stomach. I held my breath, chanting calm down, calm down in my mind. Meanwhile, the werewolf hung my organ over its mouth as it seemed to be enjoying itself. 

“A゛a゛a゛~ How many years as it been since I last ate something~ I’m digging in~”

The werewolf then dropped my organ into its open mouth, then chomped messily with a bloodied, blissful expression. 


“Urrp!”


The werewolf’s blissful expression suddenly turned into disgust. It then vomited the organ back out.

“Really now! What’s with this! There’s no magic power at all! Urrrpp!”

This was an opportunity! Thinking so, I searched the pocket of my field jacket, and took out a 10cm long cylinder. This was the only health recovery item in VMB, the Medkit. It was shaped similarly to a needleless syringe. I pressed it against my upper right arm and pushed the button, letting the solution inside course into my body. 

I could see the solution inside decrease along with a quiet hiss. In VMB, using the medkit would cause the health recovery to trigger immediately. It also had a cooldown time of 5 minutes, during which the use of another one would have no effect. I didn’t know if that function would work in this world though. The only thing I knew was that the hole in my abdomen quickly closed itself and I no longer felt dizzy. This was indeed the effect of the Automatic Health Recovery. 

Now, there was one last thing to do!

I took out an M84 flashbang from a pouch on my waist, then tossed it at the still vomiting monster. A loud explosion rang out, followed by a blinding flash of light.

“Gyaaa!”

The werewolf covered its eyes with both hands as its head was facing up in pain.

I jumped from my kneeling position to a dash. Since it was looking up, the neck was wide open. Using the momentum of my dash, with the strength of the power suit, I launched a kick. 

“GuuOooo!”

The werewolf was knocked back into the only piece of furniture in the room, the throne. It landed smackdab into it as if it were sitting on it. I switched to my SCAR-H, aimed, and connected the crosshair with its head. I fired one three-round burst after another while making sure that everything was hitting. Blowing off the wolf’s eyes, snouth, mouth, and ears. After nine shots, I watched for any movement — keeping my vigilance up while approaching it slowly. 

When I saw the body twitch slightly, I fired two more shots into its heart. The body finally loosened, losing the ability to support its own weight; it slipped from the throne with its mangled head.
