Chapter 8: Adventurers Awakened
Takaya woke up, feeling like he was called by someone he didn’t know.
The light of the day which entered my thinly opened eyelids was dazzling, and I frowned unintentionally. Apparently I slept until morning.
However, it’s a little strange considering the situation.
Why am I not dead?
He must have made a big cut on his wrist last night, relying on the momentum of the alcohol. He was intoxicated, and although his immediate consciousness was dim, he should still have had a significant amount of bleeding.
As Takaya tried to grasp the situation,
“Oh~! It looks like he’s finally awake. “Hey, Dike, and Roar, this kid finally regained consciousness?”
A woman in a priest’s uniform with lightly pigmented whitish blond hair and jade-colored eyes.
It could be seen at a glance that she’s a beautiful woman.
“Looks like you’ve had a rough night, huh? You shouldn’t drink in such an open place. What would you do if a bear ate you before you knew it?”
“Oh no, um …”
”Ihihi”, she laughed gently, and her face was dazzling, Takaya looked away not knowing what to do. From the appearance, she should be a person from this world, but Takaya, who had no experience of talking to such a person, inevitably stumbled.
He tried to move his body to get away from her, but the alcohol he had consumed last night was making him dizzy and giving him a headache. He also felt like he was about to throw up.
Perhaps this is a hangover, but if it was going to make me feel this bad, I shouldn’t have tried it, Takaya regretted.
“Oh, yeah, I took the liberty of taking care of the wound myself. It’s not a big wound, so I’m sure it won’t be a problem, but make sure you go to a treatment center later so it doesn’t leave any scars, okay?”
At this point, two more people appeared in front of Takaya from behind the priestess.
They were a knight in heavy metal armor and a Ranger with a bow.
They seemed to be a party of three adventurers along with the woman.
“Oh, I, why … not dead, because yesterday I cut my wrist myself.”
A white bandage had already been neatly wrapped around the wound on Takaya’s wrist. Seeing that there was no blood leaking out, it seemed that the bleeding had stopped completely.
“Ah? Did you hurt yourself with that knife? Were you going to die?”
The knight pointed to Takaya’s partner which was on the ground beside him and asked, so he nodded.
“Um … well, yes.”
When they saw Takaya’s reaction, they looked at each other and then burst out laughing.
“? Um …”
” What are you saying man? That’s a ‘dismantling’ knife, right? I don’t care how drunk you were, that’s a joke.”
He got more and more confused. Certainly, Takaya used it to dismantle the demon beasts he usually hunted.
However, It should be no different from a knife. Whether it’s a cutter or a kitchen knife, even if it’s not used for its original purpose, it should still be able to do the job if it cuts a vital point.
“Hmm, maybe he’s a country boy who doesn’t know the language of skills. But he seems to be able to speak the world’s language quite fluently, and he’s also dressed in a strange outfit,… he’s a mystery.
“Well, why don’t we just talk and listen? Fortunately, we’re done with our mission.”
“Well … it seems like it’s going to be a hassle, but it’s a boat we got on.”
Saying this, the three of them embraced Takaya.
” First of all, let me introduce myself. I’m Meirir, tentatively a priest.”
“I’m Dike. I’m kind of a knight, as you can see from my outfit. And next to me is the captain of our party…”
“I’m Roar. Unlike these guys, I’m a proper archer.
“Well, I’m Takaya. Takaya Nagami …”
There were many things I didn’t understand listening for the first time, but I would have to listen carefully to the three people in front of me, including about the fact that I could not die.
In this way, Takaya’s life in a different world was about to begin again, triggered by an encounter with the local adventurers.
