Because I still had some time until I started my journey, I could spend some time leisurely in the morning.

My body felt a lot lighter because I was able to sleep without keeping tight guard after a long time.

It might be better for my body to sleep in the area like this wherever available.

What I feared the most was the drop in my cautiousness in a journey due to fatigue.


I checked the village situation while heading over the village center from the sleeping area.

Apparently the large scale hunt was a success.

The village men reeked of alcohol from the morning.

I could also hear lively voices from the shop where adventurers gathered.

It wasn’t clear how many wild boars they managed to catch, but moving in the forest might be a little safer now.

Of course, I still need to be cautious.


I left the village a little before noon.

This place is far from Latomi village where I was born, so I guess they won’t be able to find me even if they walked along the village road.

There should be no merit in taking the time to pursue me as far as this village.

Moreover, wild boars might still be lurking in the forest.

I should go through the village road for my safety.


As I left the village, I passed in front of what looked like an assembly building; and a dead wild boar tumbled out.

I have some knowledge about wild boars because I read them in a book, but they are bigger than I imagined.

It was terrifying to think that I could bump into such a huge being.

You could even bump into them in the village road if you are unlucky, so I headed out from the village nervously.

The village road here are more downtrodden compared to the road in the previous village.

That’s how often people come and go from this village.

It was a very prosperous village.

Come to think of it, the owner of butcher shop must have realized my special circumstances.

You don’t often see a child under ten years old coming alone to sell meat.

He bought the meat I sold for the same price as other adventurers without asking anything.

…I should have thanked him properly.



Three days after I left Latone.

I headed to get my water supply as I listened carefully to the sound of flowing water.

At the same time, I checked the trees in the forest for any edible fruit.

Because I realized that there were a lot of edible fruits near rivers.

I picked up some fruits before I reached the river.


I refilled my bamboo tube with water from the river, and put it in my magic bag.

When I was going to return to the way I came from, a slime appeared from behind the grasses.

An ordinary slime with green color, and shaped like a triangle with rounded corners.

…an untamed slime is a monster.

Honestly, I’m scared.

It seems that the slime of this world is not cute at all.

This is my previous soul’s opinion.

My previous soul who looked for cuteness in a monster, might actually be stupid.

Leaving that aside, I have to think about how to escape…

Slimes are weak, but they attack by hurling themselves or shooting sticky bullets.

I can’t use neither offensive nor defensive magic.

I do have a sword, but a sword is not effective against a slime.

To escape is my safest bet.

I ran towards the village road to avoid grassy places where slimes appeared.

I searched around for any presence from the village road, but I guessed it didn’t chase after me.

I was glad that one slime was slow.


I heard if you have high magic power, you can bring down a slime by using basic fire magic.

But my magic power is extremely low.


In this world, they use some magic in their daily lives.

These so-called basic magic are the ones used to create fire, spill water, remove dirt and so on.

They said everybody is able to use those three kinds of magic.

Of course I, too, should be able use them, but I can’t.

The reason is the amount of my magic power.

Because my magic power is too low, I can’t use magic.


The amount of times you are able to use basic magic varies from person to person.

The difference is determined by the amount of magic power you have.

I used basic magic since I was 5, and practiced to increase my magic power so it wouldn’t hinder me in my daily life.

However, in my case, no matter how much I used basic magic, my magic power had never increased.

Or it might have increased a little, but the increase was very insignificant so I couldn’t tell at all.


With my current level of magic power, it will decrease to almost zero after I use fire magic once.

If my magic power decreases to zero in the forest, I won’t be able to sense for any presence.

Sensing for presence doesn’t require magic power, but when my magic power is zero, my physical ability decreases.

It can be deadly in the forest.

I may need magic power if I fight against something.

Even if the battle goes well, there is no such thing as next battle for me.

That’s why no matter how weak the slime is, I can’t fight it.

Just run away.
