Chapter 2: Awaken and a Different World
When I wake up, I see the sky.
The clouds move slowly and you can hear birds chirping from somewhere.
I get up. There is no pain. I stand up and see mountains and grassland everywhere as I look around. It feels like being somewhere in the countryside.
So this is the other world.
I see a big tree in the distance. I think there is a road near it.
「For now, I wonder if I’ll meet people along the road?」
I decide as I start walking towards the big tree. Before long, I see the road. This is certainly a road.
「Well, which way to go, but….」
I’m worried whether to go to my right towards the base of the big tree or to the left. Hmm, if I go right, it’ll take me 1 hour and if I go left, it’ll take me 8 hours to reach a town. If that’s the case, I’m worried….while thinking, my smart phone inside my pocket suddenly made a noise. (TL: you know, ring tone)
When I take out my phone I see “God incoming”.
『Oh, it connected, it connected. It seems you arrived safely.』
When I put the phone to my ear, I hear God’s voice. It was only some time ago that I parted ways, yet I feel some nostalgia.
『I forgot to say that your smart phone’s map and directions have changed to that world. Please use it.』
「Is that so? That saves me a lot of trouble. I was just lost.」
『As expected. I thought it was acceptable to send you into a town, but I think I would have caused a commotion and be troublesome. A place away from the public, in that case, I was a loss about where to send you.』
「Hmm, I guess so.」
I answer while smiling wryly. Certainly I do not know where to go. Because, I have neither an acquaintance or hometown
『You will have no trouble reaching town while you check the map. Well then, do your best.』(TL
When I hang up, manipulate the screen on the smart phone, and launch the map application. A map is displayed with me at the center. The nearby road is extended. I think this is the road I’m on. When I scroll down the road, there is a town to the west. Let’s see…rifuretto? So, the town of Refuretto.
「Alright, let’s go that way.」
I check the direction with the compass app and begin walking west.
After walking for quite some time, I start to think that this is a pretty bad situation.
First of all, there is no food. There is no water either. Even if I arrive at the town, after that? I have no money. I have a wallet, but can this currency really be used? If you think logically, this probably can’t be used. What shall I do now…?
While walking absentmindedly, I hear a sound from behind. I look back and see something in the distance approaching. Is that…a carriage? This is the first time I saw a carriage. I hope somebody could let me get on……
To have first contact right after coming to another world, but the question is what to do. The carriage stopped? Please give me a ride. I might be turned away so I decide to quit. Why?
As the carriage approaches, I discover that the carriage is remarkably high class. Gorgeous craftsmanship and a solid build. I am certain only a noble or rich person can ride one.
How to stop such a person 「Insolent fellow! You will be punished！」However it sounds unbearable. I give way to the carriage approaching from behind and move to the side.
The carriage rattles and raises a dust cloud while it passes by me. Having passed by without trouble, I go back on the road. As I start walking, I notice the carriage stopping.
「You！ You over there！」
The carriage door slams open and a white haired gentleman with a splendid moustache appears. Wearing a stylish scarf and mantle, on his chest was a shining rose brooch.
「What is it…？」
While the gentleman with a excited look approaches me, in the corner of my mind, I say 「Oh、I understand the language」and I am relieved.
My shoulders are firmly grasped and my whole body is being stared at.
「Tell me where you got these clothes！？」
For a moment, I am dumbfounded and didn’t understand what he said, but the moustache gentleman moves around me unconcerned, taking a good look at my school uniform that I’m wearing.
「I have not seen such a design。And this sewing…how on earth…Hmmm……」
I understand somehow. In short, this uniform is rare. Perhaps this world doesn’t have such clothes. Well, if that’s so.
「……If you like it, shall I give it to you？」
To my proposal, the moustache gentleman vigorously takes the bait.
「These clothes were sold to me from a traveling merchant, but I’ll hand it over if you like it. However, it’ll be troublesome if I sold everything I’m wearing. So in the next town, I’ll be grateful if I receive different clothing…」
I can’t say that these clothes are from another world, so I made up a list of excuses. If these clothes were sold for some money, I’ll be saved. I did not want to attract attention, so perhaps this is killing two birds with one stone.
「Very well! Please get on the carriage. I will give you a ride to the next town. And there, I will prepare you some new clothes and you’ll sell those clothes to me.」
「Then, this deal is complete.」
The moustache gentleman and I firmly shake hands. I get a ride on the carriage and it was three hours of shaking till the next town, Rifuretto. Meanwhile, the gentleman with the moustache (who seems to be called Zanakku-san) accepts the jacket of the uniform that I take off and confirms the feel of the seam with great interest.
Zanakku-san is in the fashion business and was on his way back from a meeting today. I see that when my clothes are involved, that reaction is understandable.
Speaking of me, I am enjoying the scenery that was passing by the window of the carriage. To see a different world. From now on, this is my new world.
