Chapter 4: Orc Meets Reality
Orc: “(snort) O-K-A-Y.”
Let’s review what we know.
I’m an Orc.
The fact alone makes me cave into severe depression and breaks my will.
.........okay, get over it. Seriously. It’s depressing, but facts are facts. It’s not like I wanted a harem or anything….
＿|￣|○ But I did.....I wanted to be a hero that's admired by many girls, and we were going to save the world or something. Now I'm just a pig monster.....
.........ugh, never mind. Moving on. Nearby is the dead hawk that tried to eat me.
And I’m stuck in a forest with who knows what other creatures there may be.
I have no weapons.
No food or water.
＿|￣|○ I'm screwed.......
As much as I’d like to give up, my exit means getting chewed and ripped to pieces.
＿|￣|○ I'm doubly screwed.........
WAIT! But but but but…!
If I’m in an Isekai, then maybe…could this be my chance? If I’m an Orc, maybe this is a Demon King story arc? I really hope that I’m not the villain for some newbie adventurer to slay. Actually, if I see a lovey-dovey Adventurer couple, I might tear the guy to pieces out of sheer envy.
Orc: “(SNORT!) C’mon baby!! DADDY NEEDS YOU NOW!! STATUS • OPEN!!”
I throw my fist up and jump in the air for added emphasis.
I land on the ground with a <plop>.
Maybe I said the wrong command?
Orc: “Open menu?”
Can't it just sense my intentions? It's like getting a syntax error while trying to learn programming.
Orc: “..............................exit game?”
＿|￣|○ God hates me.
Is it because I’m a mob and not a player? I thought all Isekai had Skills and Statuses?
Regardless, I’m boned to the bone.
Orc: “THEN WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?!?!” I <KICK> the nearby giant tree in frustration.
Orc: “(SNORT!) OW! What the heck?!”
An acorn hits the ground and rolls nearby. Wait, is this an acorn? It's almost the size of my palm.....
Orc: “(snort) was it a coincidence?”
I kick the tree once more.
Orc: "(snort) uuuuuuuuurrrrggggggghhhhhhhh......."
Nope. I rub at the two bumps on my head now and look up. I hear the tree branches rustle and…
Orc: “(SNORT!) EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKK?!?!?”
A hail of acorns begin to rain from the sky. They’re not falling. They’re being slung from the branches and digging several inches into the earth.
I’m pelted repeatedly and lay prostrate towards the tree in apology. The rain of acorns stops. My body is covered in bruises and welts.
It must be sentient or something. I’m sorry. I must have angered the forest god or something.
I lay there for a few seconds longer when my ears pick up something.
<ZURI….ZURI….ZURI….> (*sfx slithering)
Every hair on my body rises as something comes closer!
