Reincarnation As A Swordsman
Chapter Two- gathering more information
While I was walking home from school due to be being held back by a unimaginable detention, I found myself in front of the store I usually go to buy my packet ramen that I have for dinner.
”That will be 240yen. ” The person at the till told me with a gloomy expression on his face.
”Here you go, just keep the change. ” I handed him more than what he asked for and walk out the store towards my house.
The night was chilly and there was nobody in sight nor could I hear any sound, usually there would be countless people still wandering about, however there is only me.
”Isn this a bit strange? ” I asked myself, however i thought to myself for a second and nodded. maybe everybody has already gone home I mean its the middle of winter and its Christmas eve, everybody is probably with their families.
I should better get going, my family are waiting for me.
While turning the corner to get on the line of streets where my house was I see someone standing still across the road while his breathe started turning icy.
”Sir, Hello? Are you alright? ” Although I have been told countless times to stay away from shady people I could not help but ask this mysterious person if he was fine.
When he heard my voice he turned to look to me, however I could not see his face, it appeared to be covered by a mask and the mask had no eye holes in it.
My gut feeling tells me that this guy is dangerous, so I decided to awkwardly smile at him and turn and walk home.
By that point i was already on the street and just a few houses away before I could get home.
By chance I suddenly get a bad feeling and turn around and my eyes open wide with sock, the man standing there, is gone.
I decide to walk faster almost to the point of a slow sprint.
But I hear footprints behind me, by this time I am sprinting and I have made it to my driveway.
Just as Im about to open the door I feel a warm feeling on my back, what is this feeling? Why do I feel like my back is melting, I instinctively look down and I almost fall to my knees, there is a pool of blood rapidly growing at my feet.
I try to turn around but I fall to the floor on to my stomach, I finally realize that I have been stabbed in the back.
”Is this how its going to end for me? ” I murmured these words out with my last ragged breathe.
I cant even scream for help, I cant even see my family one more time, I cant even see the face of the person who killed me.
I am just a normal kid with an average life, I don like getting into trouble so I just stay in the middle, I could be classed as someone who fits in with the crowd, it would be reasonable for someone to think that I would get a decent job, get married to a decent looking woman and have a couple of kids before dying of old age before the family I helped raise.
Yet here I am at age 15, not even being able to see my sister who has always supported me, one last time.
I guess this is truly the end for me, ah Im losing consciousness, Im even going to die a virgin, what an ironic life I had.
How long has it been? Its felt like an eternity, have I really died? Is this the afterlife?
I see nothing, I hear nothing, but.. but I feel warmth, what is happening to me? Who am I?
I finally can open my eyes again, who is this man and why is he making goofy impressions to me?
I i- cant move, why can I move, and why are my arms so small?
Have I been reincarnated? No that cant be right, this is just a vision after death, being reincarnated cant happen, it only happens in anime and manga.
I tilted my head to the left and saw a stunning woman who looked to be in her mid-20s
She smiled at me and extended her hands at me, is she planning to lift me up, I mean it looks like I am a baby again so I guess so, wait, why am I wrapped in cloth? Have I really been reincarnated?
Its been about 6 months since I have been reincarnated, at first I found it hard to believe but I guess these things really happen. About the man and woman who were with me when I was born, those are my parents, the man is called Scot, and my mother is called Elizabeth, and I am called James.
From the looks of it, we live in the wilderness, but I can tell that my family is wealthy, well we are wealthy enough to employ a maid.
I have decided my first goal is to understand the language of this place, although It does not sound like any language from my world, so I have concluded that I really have been sent to another world, I have no idea why but if there is a way to get home, I have to do it, I have to get back to my family.
The fact that I have a new family still makes me quite uncomfortable, but in time I think I will get used to it.
Apparently Scott and Elizabeth met when they formed an adventuring party, yes there are things called Adventurer Guilds in this world.
Since I arrived her six months ago I have gained much valuable information, however due to me not being able to do anything physically yet, all I do is sit at home watching the days and nights pass by.
Going into the future by another four years, I am now Four and a half years old, these years have not been easy, although they have been essential in expanding my horizons of this new world, I am now almost fluent in the language of this world and I am able to properly walk, my father, Scott says I am a natural genius.
Sadly with all the differences from this world to my own, the food here is not up to my worlds standards, although it is still good.
While exploring my surroundings I have heard Elizabeth and Scot talking about bringing me to see Scotts family, they decided to do it when I was five years old, so I only have half a year left, at first I wondered why we had not went to see them yet, but apparently Scott is on bad terms with his family.
