C1 The Little Insect Girl in the Forest
The psychedelic forest was encompassed in a thick cloud of fog, barring the vision of everyone, while behind those thick fog ruled chaos, as countless ferocious creatures fought valiantly, dying the earth a shed of red, breaking the peaceful atmosphere of the forest.
Some distance away, under a muddy patch of grass, a unique and cute little creature stuck her head out from the dark insect egg.
“Oh, what the hell is this?”
‘Why am I born among this terrifying pile of insects? And why are there so many disgusting insects?’
The little creature retreated back into her egg, occasionally blinking her eyes seemingly in a trance, somewhat unable to believe what she was witnessing.
The area was densely packed with eggs. Occasionally, one or two fat insects would crawl out from them. They looked scary and hideous.
“I think I was playing a game a few moments ago, right? Why did I appear in such a place and become a monster girl?”
She wanted to cry but couldn’t shed any tears. She was at a loss in front of the scene playing before her eyes.
From time to time, one or two terrifying white insects crawled out of their eggshells in the vicinity. They wriggled around at leisure. Occasionally, they would take a bite of the grass, then lay down with their bellies facing the sky, without moving an inch at all.
Of course, these insects were not harmonious. Some of them were very strong, they would crazily attack their companions, and swallow their corpses into their stomachs.
‘Damn it, so scary!’
The Little Insect Girl hid in the semi-destructed eggshell, trembling in fright.
Soon, her stomach was hit by the pangs of extreme hunger.
‘What should I do? Should I go out?’
However, if she went out, it would be bad if she followed the footsteps of those dead insects, and confronted strong insects.
“Ah, it doesn’t seem to be a good idea to stay here. Let’s go and eat some leaves first.”
Her tender arms grabbed the edge of the eggshell, as she tried shouldering her way out, struggling to climb, and her lower half of the body rippled with all the strength it could muster.
After falling to the ground, Little Insect Girl innocently shook her head, shaking away the dirt on her head.
She was so weak that she even had difficulty moving.
Suddenly, a circular fruit fell from a tree in the distance. It appeared as if an earthquake had graced them with its mighty presence, and large amounts of red juice surged out from the fruit like a Tsunami.
At this moment, many eggs suffered due to the impact and were smashed into pieces on the spot.
Gazing at the enormously terrifying scene, she felt utterly insignificant, and even the leaf eclipsing the blue dome of the heavens seemed unreachable to her.
But it was really great too. The leaf looked really big, and it seemed like she wouldn’t be starving for a long period of time.
The fruit juice glistened under the sun and looked very delicious.
She slowly wriggled over, lowered her head, and took a sip.
‘The taste is really good.’
A small screen appeared in front of her vision. The notification displayed on it made Little Insect Girl’s eyes open wide in shock.
‘What the hell is a satiety point? Is this also a game?’
She didn’t care anymore and simply stopped thinking about it. She was really hungry, so she went back to her grand feast.
She laid on top of the delicious liquid, desperately sucking the juice as if her life depended on it. If it wasn’t for the appearance of the human girl till her upper body, she would probably be no different from the surrounding insects.
After eating for a long time, she felt that her stomach was finally full, and as if knowing the same, a notification popped up in front of her eyes.
Touching her bulging belly, she turned around and gazed at the sky with a satisfied look.
“I have no regrets in life.”
“Shit, no regrets my ass!” She suddenly trembled and straightened up on the ground.
“What exactly am I doing?”
Unconsciously, she became just like the lazy insects around her.
She shook her head, feeling speechless about her own thoughts.
A red insect was eating its fellow companion not far away.
The insect had a sharp and dangerous mouth. After taking a few bites of the corpse, it curled up on the spot and a thin layer of membrane slowly formed out of its body.
It was a bit scary.
Especially when she saw the half-dead white insect struggling on the ground, she felt even more afraid.
“I don’t want to be eaten.”
However, if this continued, she would probably become food for other insects sooner or later, because they were becoming more and more powerful with every kill.
“Why am I so weak? I can’t beat those things.”
Little Insect Girl was so scared that she crawled back into her eggshell.
Although she was full and was also safe in the eggshell, she knew that this wasn’t a good solution. More and more insects were being hatched. At some time, one would go crazy and treat her as food.
‘Could it be that I can also evolve by eating insects?’
‘But, eating insects is disgusting.’
‘How can I eat that kind of creepy thing?’
‘Though… I really have to try it out.’
A bold idea popped up in Insect Girl’s heart, followed by the loud grumble from her stomach.
When she poked her head out, there were more insects outside. A few of them started to fight not far away, and they might notice this place at any time.
“I have to go too.”
It seemed like there were no other choices.
If she didn’t eat others, she would be eaten.
Lying in the broken egg, Little Insect Girl appeared hesitant.
Just as she was thinking about her next move, a fat red insect crawled in her direction.
“Oh my god, is it here to eat me?”
Little Insect Girl hugged her little head and curled into a ball. Her whole body went limp.
She was really afraid.
“Oh no, no, I have to overcome my fear.”
‘Even if I became an insect, I still have to fight for my life! I can’t be bullied.’
She wanted to become even more powerful.
After tearing apart the remaining eggshell, Insect Girl used all her strength to escape in the opposite direction of the red insect.
She could not come into contact with that creature, so she had to attack the weak white insect first.
Little Insect Girl wriggled in front of a fat insect who had eaten and was resting around the corner. After hesitating for a few seconds, she finally bit down.
[Evolution points + 1]
She had never heard of it. What was this, could it be used for evolution? ‘Forget it, let’s continue eating.’
The fat insect seemed to be suffering great pain, and it started to flee in the opposite direction. Insect Girl ate its flesh and actually felt that it was very delicious, just like jelly.

[Skill Card obtained: Venom Spit]
Little Insect Girl happily shook her tail and looked behind her, only to find that the giant red insect was chasing after her. She was so scared that she quickly climbed up the slope not far away. At this time, the red insect actually took the opportunity to attack the white insect that she had just eaten.
She felt that it was a bit strange. It seemed that only the red insects could attack, and there were very few of them in the group.
‘Could it be that they were not the same type of creature as the white insects?’
Little Insect Girl tilted her head in puzzlement, and suddenly noticed the skill displayed on the screen in front of her.
‘Venom Spit… Should I use it?’
‘Let’s try it.’
A black liquid flew out and hit the giant red insect. In the next moment, it began to struggle painfully on the ground.
