This is Tsunami. A few days ago my computer was infected with a virus that corrupted and destroyed about 1.3 terabyte of data on both of my SSD’s. Most of it was my entire anime collection and games, but most importantly chapter 4 of Smartphone was lost so I have to re-translate it. I’ll try and get started on TLing it again but i have lots of torrenting to do and this week is Finals for the class i teach and I have lots of grading to do still.

This is Panda. I talked with Cyro and he agreed to allowing hosting of works from amateur writers. If anyone is interested, can you contact me at cluelesspandaln@gmail.com? If needed, we can talk about donations and proofreaders.

Chapter 3: A Change of Clothes and Ten Gold Coins.

 Three hours after I met Zanakku-san. I was jolted and rocked, and finally the carriage arrived at refuretto.
The town’s guard-like soldier salutes, asks a light question, and then promptly allows us to enter. From the soldier’s attitude Zanakku-san seems to be considerably famous.
The wagon rattles as we enter the town. Every time we advanced on the old-fashioned stone pavement, the box-shaped body shook repeatedly. Before long shops start to line up, the carriage stopped in front of a one shop when we entered the crowded main street.

「Well, please come down. Let’s arrange your clothes here.」

Zanakku-san said that, and I get off the carriage. There was a thread and needle logo signboard on the shop, under that i see letters and notice this is bad.

「I can’t read it……」

The letters on the signboard can’t be read. Isn’t this considerably unpalatable. I can talk but cannot read letters… Well, because its possible to have a conversation i can have somebody teach me… I have to study.
Zanakku-san lead me into the store’s interior and several store clerks greet us.

「Welcome home, owner」

For a moment I am surprised by the store clerks’ words.

「Owner?」
「This is my shop. Leaving that aside, before we change your clothes. Hey, somebody choose clothes that suit him!」

Zanakku-san urged me into the dressing room (Not a curtain to divide the room, but an actual room) and pushed me into it. And then several clothes were brought. To change clothes, i take off the jacket of the blazer, remove the necktie and take off my shirt. I wore a black t-shirt under that but then the look in Zanakku-san eyes changed again.

「!? You, are you going to sell those under clothes!」

A bandit.

In the end, Zanakku-san made me sell everything i have. Everything from socks to shoes. When told to even sell my trunks, i honestly felt tired.(Maybe dejected is better?) I don’t understand your feeling, but i wish you understood mine.
Clothes and shoes are prepared instead, it is easy to move in and altogether robust, I had no complains. Its not flashy and the thick feeling is wonderful. This won’t stand out.

「So, how much are you going to sell your clothes to me. Of course, you can’t attach money to the weight of thread, but is there an amount desired?」
「Even if you say so…. Because I don’t know the market price, i can’t say anything. It should be very expensive but…actually, I’m penniless.」
「Is that so…that is unfortunate. Okay, then about 10 pieces of gold coins.」

I can only nod as I don’t know the value of 10 gold coins.

「So, with that」
「Is that so! Then here」

I’m handed 10 gold coins. Its about the size of a 500 yen coin, with something like a lion carved bas-relief. This is my entire fortune. Lets try to use it carefully.

「By the way, does this town not have something like an inn? I want to secure a place to sleep before the sun goes down.」
「There is an inn in front of the road on the right hand go down one house. 『The silver moon』 if you look upwards towards the signboard you’ll soon understand.」

Even if i locate the signboard I can’t read it… Well i can ask a person to see where to go. Because words can be comprehended.

「I understand. Then here」
「Oh. If you obtain unusual clothes again bring them to me」

I bid farewell to Zanakku-san as i go out. The sun is still high. I took out the smartphone from the inside pocket, I turn on the power and it is before 2pm.

「I thought about it in the carriage, but…does this match the time…?」

Well, from the position of the sun, i don’t think it is out of sync in a big way.
Suddenly realizing, I make up my mind and launch the map application. Then a map of the whole town is displayed, present locations and even the full name of the stops were displayed. With this I’ll never get lost. The inn 『The Silver Moon』is properly displayed. However….

「This billboard….『Fashion King Zanakku』…was what was written」

I began walking towards the inn while feeling that Zanakku-san’s naming sense is a bit disappointing.

Phones are OP. Remember that.

Also, tbh should probably save it on Google Drive or pastebin or something so something this tragic never happens again.

It did save to google drive, but the file was open on my computer and got corrupted and when that happened google doc saved it because it registered the changes. All i have are a bunch of 1’s and 0’s and symbols in the file

Wonder where the virus came from or if it’s just some random hating on you, either way my condolences on the loss of your data and on top of that your work and games are gutting you too. Hang in there.

cellsoul

Oh pastebin then? I doubt it can corrupt that…? Well take your time, I don’t think many people expect tons of chaps around AP testing weeks.

rambowambo

but in google docs you can revert changes made (even if they are months old), so am I missing something?

rambowambo

Should have wrote that in the first message, way to go:
File -> See revision history

Exactly.

ohh, thanks, now if I only knew that before i had to take the exam i made to recreate the answer key. An hour of my life wasted lol.
Well thanks to that, I won’t have to re-translate the whole thing but now i have to find where i put the rough draft at. But still, the amount of work i have is literally cut in half

He just got ripoff, huw clothes could go for more.

Freeter

Agree, would have doubled it to 20

Well,considering the coins size and density of gold and at current prices, he received over $8000 USD for his clothes.

Also in almost all this summoned/reincarnated into a medieval fantasy world, gold coins are reserved for nobility/high-class people and even something like a silver coin can cover a commoners living expenses for a while, but we’ll see.

Lol lvl 50 wow… I couldn’t get past lvl 30 ninja I got bored…

Tsunami Infinatus

i understand your feelings of boredom. I got to lvl 50 with a 2 week trial but what i would do to do the story quest again. You have to balance what to do on FFXIV. To much story quests and it gets bored. So i balanced it with Story, some dungeons and guildhest followed by adding a crafting class to my character to spice it up.

The story is good so far. I joined my buddy fc but they aren’t active enough so probably join my other buddy fc since they play more, but atm I probably pick it back up in a week or two and start playing yo catch up to get the new classes 🙂

Onizuka

He should of checked the market rate on his phone before selling his clothes, just to make sure he wasn’t sold under average. lol.

Oh well, live and learn, eh?

I sympathise, my laptop just went to the big net cafe in the sky…

Thanks for Chapter!

Though I notice it is short somehow.

Thanks to Translators and Editors for this Chapter. ^^

Yeah, the chapters for this are really quite short compared to the other projects…

It’s depressing seeing the difference.

Tsunami Infinatus
Member

lol don’t be jealous, i think in the future the chapters will begin increases in pages. Not to mention since they are so short i can do multiple chapters in 1 week if i have to. But I’ll save that for summer maybe when i don’t have work

Rumanshi Ichigo
Admin

Dude, chapter five is 100 lines -_- that’s like 1/3rd a normal chapter to me.

Tsunami Infinatus
Member

True, but since each chapter is short i can at the minimal do 1 chapter a week or maybe 2-3 since they are short. This kind of series is nice for me, since i have RL issues that get in the way, I can still get at least 1 chapter out for the readers because they are so short.

Rumanshi Ichigo
Admin

RL issues ;_; please, I’m trying to escape we mine.

Vandrake

Thanx for the chaper! Dont forget to finish the FFXIV story if you want to play heavensward 🙂

Brian

Lol it feels like he got robbed… 10gold coins is to little for such advance technology

Anon

Why would MC trade his superior shoes away much less his trunks?

Did people even wear underwear in the Medieval era?

He got ripped off hard.
