- The Labyrinth Allied Nation
I was reading the books for several hours.
I knew the basic thing from the books which written down about the history and I was able to grasp the knowledge about occupation and the life of people in this world. I might say the library close to the labyrinth above all and of I was saved thanks to it, because of that there was much information regarding the labyrinth.
I stop the reading and started to hear more story from the person in charge in the Library.
While I was in the middle of reading the book, I asked the person in charge about here and there. I succeeded collecting the information without being doubted in particular.
After that, I left the library and go ahead the way which I heard from the person in charge in the Library and arrived at the facilities called Encashment store.
I take the leather bag out of 『Belonging』while preventing to not be seen by anybody then I entered the store.
According to the information that I learned from the library, I cannot found about the things like 『Indication』and 『Belonging』. Possibly of me who only have this power is high. So I intend to hide about my ability.
Inside the Encashment store, it is comparable to the Antique shop which I knew from my original world. Old things and junk things are scattered all over inside the store.
Then I called out to the plump man who I thought to be the shopkeeper.
「Excuse me. Just a little is ok, would you mind to change this into money?」
I begin to negotiate with careful words.
I intended to negotiate so that I will not be fooled. Changing into money is the purpose while I’m performing the act like Intelligence way. I planned to not take the risk.
「Yes sure. Could you show it to me?」
The shopkeeper coped willingly
Dried meat, Water bag, Hemostatic, Numbness needle, Rasp, Longsword of Apulia, Leather bag, Leather boots, Cloth, Iron knife, Wooden bow, Unmarked arrow, Lighter, Smartphone, Pebble, Branch, Tenth magic stone, Ninth magic stone.
I’m pretending to take it out from my leather bag which I hung on my waist and took out all of the tenth magic stone to the counter.
「Ah, a shallow of the magic stone. It would be one copper coin for each」
「I understand, then please」
It doesn’t mean I won’t negotiate from the beginning, but I answered him immediately after to hear of his speaking uniformly.
「Here 12 copper coins. Do you have the certificate?」
「……No, I don’t have it」
「Then push your finger here to sign it」
As the shopkeeper said so, I pushed the seal.
I was surprised to be told about a certificate, but it doesn’t seem to be essential. When I press my fingerprint on the paper I have a thought「How many years ago if it in my original world to use the fingerprint」
「Are you by any chance from the foreign country? To consider you who don’t have certificate in possession」
I might think in an awkwardly state to respond his question. The Shopkeeper seem to doubt me. Then I have to answer magnificently as possible.
「Yes, I came from the far country. I came here because I heard about the rumor of the Labyrinth」
「I see, so you are first time to came here, which country are you from?」
Ok, it seems good.
However, I feel sorry to steal the things from the corpse body. But, the flow of the conversation decides to get on it since it is not really bad. Then, I choose things which I learned from the library.
Let’s set my hometown is a far country. A small country seems a good idea. There should have been a country called Fania.
「It is really far away from here. Do you know about Fania country?」
「From Fania huh. I don’t know about the details but I know where it is. I see so you are from the far country. Fania, what kind of country?」
Is it because he is so free that caused him curious about me so much? Before it’s getting worse, I have to return to the main point.
「Well, nothing in particular. By the way, is there any good lodging around here?」
「Hmm, an inn? There is one, a boarding house in the. Whoseyards But, it’s quite expensive. ……Though, there is nothing cheap in the Whoseyards in the first place.」
「Is that so?」
Looks like Whoseyards is expensive country.
It is as the guard of entrance labyrinth said.
「Apparently, you chose properly to enter the country. Since the Whoseyards is a good country from the first look, it made people who do not know a lot about the allied nation enters this country. Both the scene and its peace are in good order, but the price of everything here is quite expensive by just that much. Since its center for the nobility which called as Knight Nation」
I entered the Whoseyards is by coincidence. However, there are merit and also demerit.
He sure said this country is for rich people by rich people.
「Honestly, by you earned a little of the copper coin can hardly find a place to stay and eat the meal as well. Therefore, you will not be able to manage it if you are neither high level nor excellent labyrinth explorer」
「To that extent? By the way, how about to compare to other countries?
「Not too much different. If compare to other countries it would be overtimes in different. it would be 100 times in different if to compare with the Whoseyards」
「It’s a country which its people have the gold coin in their possession. I’m sorry, but if you don’t have any money you won’t be able to find a place to stay for today. You could stay at the outdoor where there is no Magic stone line. Tomorrow I suggest you to go to the Wald. A country which it has bad peace and order, but it is ideal state to explore the labyrinth with several pieces of copper coins a day」.
I don’t mind to sleep at the outdoor. But still what will happen to me about the stress is increasing since I consumed my mind a lot. It would drive the Skill 『？？？？』to meet its condition. I feel it is not a good idea if that skill is increased. There is also a reason which I can’t get what is 「Magic Stone Line」. According to the shopkeeper, I have no option left but to sleep at the outdoor where I have to avoid the magic stone line. However, according to the books from the library is only written as the line of the jewel which transmits a magical power.
In other words, for today means, I’m not able to find more money.
Well, but I appreciate the shopkeeper who treated me kindly to such a beginner like me.
「Then, Could please look at my things again? I just want to find out about its the value」
「Uhmm, You still have left? Well, Let me see it all you have」
I went to the outside of the store, and I took out the Longsword of Apulia and the other things from my『Belonging』and bring them in. I lied to him that the things I got from my acquaintance, but still I was suspected. However, he didn’t ask me more. Perhaps, there is an ability or item which is similar to my『Belonging』in this world.
I leave the things as minimum as I could, and the left is I change them with money.
The result isー
Revan silver coin Revan copper coin Iron Knife Dried meat Water bag Hemostatic drug Oil Lighter Smartphone Pebble Branch
――I obtained approximately ten pieces of valuable silver coins and 100 pieces of copper coins.
The weapon which attached a name and the magic stone which I got from the huge wolf. With only that it valued by 9 silver coins.
「ーThank you very much. You saved me a lot」
「Not a problem, because you have good things with you. It’s a win-win. Well then, take care for yourself, beginner」
After that, I left the Encashment store.
My『Belonging』is decreased but. With this, I could stay at the Whoseyards.
I move to the cheapest lodging which I learned from the shopkeeper.
And, I borrow one room, since dinner is included, I went ahead to the dining room.
Honestly, the dinner’s taste was really bad.
If I compare it to my original world. The dinner didn’t have the rice, just a potato and similarly to a bread.
After I finished my dinner, I went back to my room.
This room is a plain one. I can’t say this room is clean. However, this room seems to be admitted as a good class in this world.
I learned it with dizziness for the fact.
I take a deep breath no to disturb my mind.
I fall my body down to the hard bed.
This is my first rest today.
I lessened my mind.
My thought deviates to the normal direction incidentally.
If I think about today, I had so many weird things in the whole day. A question pops up innumerable.
ーI can’t stand to not have the answer to my question.
ーWhat has been happening to me.
Then I began to think deeply about the answer.
I sank deeply into my thought. The answer appeared blankly.
ーAh, What I’m doing?
After I opened my eyes, I was attacked by the monster, there is a magic as well, which made all of this world kind of the RPG game. I was fooled. I was bleeding, and I did almost die. I picked up things from the corpse body like a bandit. I didn’t get it. I didn’t get it what this means. Just what is this world? Where’s, my world? Where is my family? Even though I don’t have parents, but I still have a little sister. Did my existence in my original world disappear? Then is my little sister just alone by herself? I can’t let this out. I absolutely have to go back. To wake up my little sister in the morning and make her breakfast. I have to get out from this world. 『Indication』and 『Magic』 Game like status. It is a system which reflected my thought. How much my brain has tampered? I scared. This is too scary. Unbelievable things and also unbelievably convenient. Don’t joke with me. Just what would happen to me? Don’t joke with me, don’t joke with me. Shiiiit…Ah my stomach, Arrghhhh, arghhhhhhー!!
【Skill 『？？？？』is activated】
Confusion stabilizing mind in exchange for some feelings gets a revision of +1.00 to confusion.
The blaze which was inside my head in an instant it was died down.
I did it again.
But, I already used it. I can’t be helped with the thing which exercised it.
I push forward about the present and grasp calmly.
I will do my best.
I repeat it again and again and decided to do the thing which I could.
Then the important thing now is to rest my body.
I will get absolutely nothing if I die.
I rest my exhausted brain.
I set my position to sleep.
I lose my consciousness to the bottom of my mind.
Seems like I will not having a dream at all.
Then, I was wrapped by the uneasiness and darkness.
It’s a jet-black world.
A few hours at the time. But, in my sensory feel like it is a few seconds.
Then I fall in sleep.
