How I was Murdered by a Fox Monster Chapter 21

Summary: They say life flashes before you in that moment before death. I could see it all reflected in the blade. I was standing under the cherry blossoms at my school entrance ceremony, eating cake at my sister's wedding, standing outside praying the monster wouldn't come tonight. I might not be dead yet but I can see what's coming, this is the story of how I was murdered by a fox monster!

Chapter 21

Judo practice involved more pain than I expected. I was content with just watching for the first ten minutes, but after that I was bored out of my mind and begged them to let me join in.

There was nothing a novice like me could do, except subject myself to being their human rag doll which they used to practice various throws. Itsuki was kind enough to throw me softly, but his fellow club members didn't show much mercy. My whole body was aching by the time it was over.

Memories of a Soul in the Underworld Chapter 52

Story: Ethan is a soul in the Underworld with no memory of his life on Earth. He is bought and sold by various masters for centuries. Traveling from large industrial towns to scorching hot deserts. During his journey he picks up the skills, knowledge and magic to escape his enslavement. He runs with the intent of living a free life, but is pursued by agents until he's cornered on a remote mountain range. With little time left, Ethan begins to recount his life and masters in the hope of leaving a record of his existence. These are his memories.

With my own hands.

After weeks of sucking up and pandering to gain information, I found my first target, the magical master Bellerive. Several of Lucas' unexpectedly useful friends confirmed that the elderly man received a large inheritance of magical goods. I felt bitter that he hadn't rushed into save me from the Soul Market instead.

I made my move one evening while Lucas slept. Completely dead to the world as he was getting screwed over.
