Destroying My Own Novel – Chapter 3 Bahasa Indonesia

“Wait, this can’t be real…” Mykel said as he walked the sidewalk and looked around at the world that he wasn’t familiar with. “This must be a dream, I need to wake up,” he continued as he walked past a cafe and saw his own reflection on the see-through glass window.

Mykel looked at himself in the window and he read about a dream that a person wouldn’t see themselves in the mirror and would start changing faces. He looked at himself and he recognized himself and nothing happened to his reflection.

“Who’s that handsome guy, is he looking at us?” The woman asked her friends as they saw Mykel looking at himself.

Mykel started to punch himself in the face and everyone in the cafe was shocked by it. “Oh, he’s crazy,” The other woman said.

“Fuck it hurts…” Mykel said as he rubbed his jaw. “This isn’t a dream, this is real,” he said as he looked at himself and then realized the whole people in the cafe were staring at him. He then walked away hurriedly with a bit of embarrassment.

“Let’s think about this thoroughly,” Mykel said to himself as he walked and looked down at the road. “I’m in the world of my own novel, and I’m in District 1 where the only District that’s safe from the war against demons and their towers,” he continued and looked at the tall buildings around him.

“There should be at least 14 districts in this world that I built and each one of them except District 1 has a Demon Tower in it,” Mykel said as he sat down on the empty bench in the park. “Lucifer, Beelzebub, Satan, Abaddon, Mammon, Belphegor, Asmodeus, Behemoth, Astaroth, Samael, Azrael, Mahazeal, and Azazel. The 13 Demon Kings and the ruler of the 13 Demon Towers,” Mykel said as he counted them with his fingers.

Mykel sighed and checked his blazer pocket and grabbed a cigarette and lit it up. “What year is it now?” he asked himself as he looked around then he saw a newspaper in the trash bin. He grabbed it and spread it open then looked at the date of the published newspaper. “March 12th, 2104, it’s a month after the towers appeared around the world. I’m still in the prologue of the story,” Mykel said.

“Fuck, I can’t remember my own story! It’s been a while and I never intended on remembering this failure of a novel of mine,” Mykel said as he scratched the back of his head with a cigarette in his mouth.

Mykel’s stomach growled and he decided to go and grab something to eat, maybe he would remember after he ate.

As he walked toward the hotdog stand on the sidewalk, he realized that the money in this world was using its own currency. His $22 in his wallet was useless and he couldn’t use them in this world, he then threw his wallet since everything inside it was useless.

Mykel wandered in the city and ended up in a different area of the district, he looked around and he saw so many equipment stores and smithing workshops. He saw people coming in and out of the buildings, and while he was checking each building, a group of people walked past him.

“Yo! What’s your level now? I have been hunting demons in District 14 and they gave me juicy loot and XP!” The guy in his half plate armor.

Mykel glanced at him and remembered in the story there was a system to help the awakeners to progress and fight the demons. He decided to go to the dark alleyway where nobody was around, he then leaned on the wall and remembered how to open the system.

(Open System,) Mykel said in his mind.

A large screen appeared in front of him and he was shocked and disbelief that it actually work for him because not everyone could open a system since only the awakeners could open it.

[NAME: Mykel Alester]

[LEVEL: 1]



[SKILL(S): CHARM (Lv.1)]

“Charm?” Mykel asked as he raised his eyebrow and then he tapped on the skill.

[Charm (Passive): Increase your sex appeal and makes it easier to communicate with the opposite sex.]

“Am I that desperate for that kind of thing? What a useless skill,” Mykel said as he rubbed the bridge of his nose. “Oh, right, I remember I can delete skills,” he continued and then hold the skill until a trash bin appeared next to it.

[Are you sure you want to remove [Charm (Lv.1)] from your skill?]

[Yes.] [No.]

“Of course, this is rubbish,” Mykel said as he tapped on the yes button.

Mykel stared at his status screen for quite a while and he started to remember the system that he created in the story.

A skill can only be obtained through events, and it could only be leveled up by doing the thing the skill described. The problem was that the Awakener’s skill was limited on their level, so if the Awakener level was 1, then they could only have 1 skill and could only be leveled up the skill to level 2 until they raised their level or at least reached the minimum requirement to level up the skill.

That was the reason why the old Mykel thought of allowing the Awakeners to remove skills that they didn’t want.

“Why did I make it so complicated,” Mykel sighed as he rubbed his face. “But that was a nice idea though,” he continued as he tried to justify his own creation.

Mykel lit his cigarette and suddenly a notification sound appeared out of nowhere. He opened his right eye and looked at the notification.

[You have attained a new skill!]

[Open your status screen to check it out!]

Mykel tapped the screen and smoke his cigarette, he then opened his status screen again.

[NAME: Mykel Alester]

[LEVEL: 1]



[SKILL(S): ADMIN (Lv.1)]

Mykel was frozen as he stared at the skill he just got, his eyes were focused on the skill then he tapped on it as he gulped.

[ADMIN (Active): Allow the User to open the command system and modify everything that is listed in the command system. The User is allowed to modify the system based on the skill level and the higher the level, the more commands they will unlock and the more time they can modify the system. (Current skill level is 1. The User can only modify 1 system a day, and only the basic information or system that they allow to modify)]

Before Mykel could absorb everything that just happened, a notification appeared in front of him.

[You are the creator of this world, you will have the access to the command system. You are free to do anything as long as it is listed in the command system]

[Please enjoy and have fun]

“Heh, then I will turn this world upside down,” Mykel said as he glared at the notification in front of him with a smirk on his face. “Let’s see what I can modify in the command system,” he continued as he activated the [ADMIN] skill.

The moment he activated the [ADMIN] skill, a command prompt screen appeared in front of him. It waited until Mykel input something in the command prompt.

“Let’s see…” Mykel said as he puffed the smoke. “Let’s type… list of awakeners…” he said as he wrote the command.

As soon he put the command, millions of names appeared from the command prompt and his eyes couldn’t catch up with the names of the awakeners in the world. He ignored all of them and immediately wrote his name on the command, and his name appeared in the system.

[NAME: Mykel Alester]

[LEVEL: 1]



[SKILL(S): ADMIN (Lv.1)]

“Let’s see if I can edit the skill,” Mykel said as he tapped on the skill tab on the system.



“Fair enough,” Mykel said as he tilted his head and shrugged his mouth. “How about benefactor? Maybe I can get myself that constellation to be my benefactor,” he said as he pointed his finger at it.



Mykel sighed. “Fine, let’s try the other one…” he said as he pointed at [AFFINITY].












“Useless, but at least I know that I can modify this,” Mykel said and then he looked at his level. “Let’s see if I can modify this one,” he continued and then pointed his finger on his level.



“Level from 1 to…” Mykel said as he erased his level. “Let’s make the max level which is 100,” he continued.



A notification appeared in front of his command prompt.

[You have leveled up!]

[You are now level 100]

[You have reached max level!]

[You can now hold up to 100 skills!]

Mykel chuckled softly and flicked his cigarette on the ground. “Let’s gain some skills,” he said as he walked on the sidewalk while hanging his blazer on his finger on his shoulder.
