System Change

Chapter 24: Anomaly

system has extended at a constant rate in all directions.”

“We know this. What does it matter?” Kelvin interrupted.

“Ill soon get to that. Please be patient.” Darvin motioned again, and the expanding of the model stopped. “This is the amount of the universe that the system had covered as of seven days ago.” The model was a perfect sphere. The system seemed to have a perfectly uniform expansion.

“Now watch as I show you these past seven days.” Darvin motioned again and the uniform expansion stopped. Then, a portion of the sphere began growing at a rapid pace. “This is the anomaly that I brought you all here to discuss.”

“How interesting.” Xephos mused. “It seems like by focusing all of its energy in one direction, its able to grow at an extreme pace. But the question is, why?”

“Its hunting.” Amelia spoke up for the first time.

“Oh, would you elaborate?” Asked Xephos.

Amelia looked at Xephos, then at Darvin, but said nothing.

Darvin nodded at Amelia. “I believe that Amelia is correct. As for what it is hunting, I do not know. But, in the days that I have monitored the situation, I have found what may be a clue.” Darvin spread his arms, and the model disappeared.

He made another motion and a picture of a human male popped up from the table. The man had coal black hair and light blue eyes, he was wearing black steel armor and holding a glaive in his right hand. “This human is Derek Hunt. He is from planet C-186, which the residents call, Earth.” Darvin motioned again, and a list of Dereks stats popped up.

“Hmm. Level 79. If I remember correctly, thisEarth is under my territory.” Kelvin spoke up. “Its not a bad level, but Earths five years is almost up, the strong should be at least level 90 by now.” Kelvin paused for a moment. “I will say that he has magnificent stats compared to his level. Can we see his Titles?”

“We cannot. My power is limited to any beings level and stats. I cannot show their Titles or Skill unless I am within a certain range of them, even then, it is limited.” Replied Darvin.

“So whats the big deal with this human?” Kelvin asked.

“He vanished almost two years ago. What you are seeing is his status from then.” Said Darvin.

Xephos spoke. “Theres nothing strange about someone vanishing. Its possible for a being to leave the systems range. I know a few who have.”

“You are correct, and two years ago…” Darvin moved his hands and another image with Dereks face on it popped up. “The system designated him asOut of System Range. Now, when a person is out of range of the system, the system can offer no morehelp, but it is still able to locate the general direction of a person.”

Darvin then brought up another image. “This is Dereks system status from seven days ago.” TheOut of System Range had changed toSystem Suppressed. “I have no clue what this means, but the day his status changed was the day the system began growing exponentially in a singular direction. This could be a coincidence, but I do not believe so. I have scoured the system records, and I could not find anything related to this anomaly. I think that the system is hunting Derek Hunt, or whatever it was that suppressed it.”

A fairy-like voice rose up. “This is interesting. Do we know what happened to the human in the first place? How did he leave system range? It may be easy for some, but his planet was still in the introductory stage. There should not have been many ways to leave the planet, much less the system.” Trischa made her thoughts clear.

Darvin sighed. “Yes.” He looked over at Kelvin. “It seems that humans still jump head first into things without a modicum of research. I mean, really.Things to Avoid in the System is basically free in the system shop and the first chapter is all about portals.” Darvin shook his head and Kelvin giggled. “It seems that a female human named Silvi Jacobs has been particularly lucky with her portals. Not a single beast has broken through. Though after she lost most of her team and her portal closed with Derek Hunt still inside, she has not done much of anything.”

“Oh? So he was trapped in the void?” Holcom, the other Malaxi spoke up. “Two years in the void. I wonder how hes still alive. How long would that be for the person inside?” He asked.

“We do not know. Time in the void is always fluctuating. It could have been days, or decades.” Darvin replied. He turned to look at Kelvin. “Kelvin, once the introductory phase on thisEarth is over, you are to gather Silvi Jacobs and the remnants of her team, and find whatever information you can on Derek Hunt.”

“Very well.” Kelvin tapped a few times on a device fastened on his wrist. “I will go personally in two months whenEarth finishes its introduction.”
