The tent was more comfortable than I had imagined and I was able to sleep well.

I realized that I had let my guard down too much.
I need to be more careful.

I put Sora in my bag and headed to the simple kitchen.

I boiled some water and made tea with the tea leaves I picked in the forest.

It was nice to have something warm to drink in the morning.

If I was in the forest, I have to move out first thing in the morning.

I knew it was to avoid danger, and I had gotten used to it.
But it was still tough when waking up in the morning.

I returned to my tent, and when I took a breather, I saw several adventurers approaching me.

Somehow they looked serious and I grew scared.


“Hey! You thief!”




Two male adventurers and two female adventurers, perhaps they were in a team.

One of them yelled at me.

Since their voice echoed around here, the noisy area grew silent in an instant.


“Are you sure this is the right one?”


“Yeah, I’m sure.
This tent is mine! This kid stole it.”


That man yelled loud enough to make an echo.

What are they talking about?

I’m sure I bought this tent yesterday.

I don’t know what kind of person the old man is, but I don’t think he is the type of person who sells stolen things.


“Confess! You stole it, didn’t you!”


I was scared listening to his scream.

But, this isn’t right.

I didn’t steal anything.


“I didn’t steal.
This is the tent I bought.”


“This is not a tent a kid like you can afford! You liar!”


The man who yelled the first time grabbed my collar.

My body was hanging in the air a little.

I’m scared, I’m scared, I’m scared.


How did your parents raise you to grow up to be such a liar?”


I hate this.”


The female adventurer looked at me and mocked me.

The other adventurers were also in an uproar.

I was trembling due to fear.

I didn’t want to cry since I hadn’t done anything wrong.

My eyes were blurred with tears.


“What are you doing!”


A man stepped in between me and the adventurer while shaking off his hand that grabbed my collar.

When I saw him, turned out he was the adventurers’ area caretaker who gave me the permit board.


“Arrest this kid!”


“This kid stole my comrade’s tent.
Arrest him cause I’m suing.”


No way.

What should I do?


“What about the mark?”


“I haven’t put any mark because it was stolen right after I bought it.
But I’m sure this tent is mine!”


“How do you know?”


As I listened to the caretaker and the adventurers’ conversation, I grew more confused and I didn’t know what to do.

What should I do if the caretaker believed what they say?


“There’s no way this brat can afford this tent, right? It’s just common sense.”


“Is that all?”


“That’s all? I think that’s enough!”


“Indeed~ Please get to work.”


“Indeed, indeed.”


They even spoke badly about the caretaker.

It’s frustrating.

…Should I give up my tent?


“This tent belongs to this kid.”






“What did you say! I said that kid stole it!”


“Where did you buy the tent?”


“In Baki’s store.”


“They only deal with brand new goods, right.”


“Yeah, what about it?”


“Since this tent is secondhand, it’s not what you guys are looking for.”


“That can’t be! That tent is brand new! Don’t mess with me!”


“I’m sure this tent is a secondhand one from old man Lag’s store.”


Old man Lag’s store?

Is he talking about that old man?

But why did he know about that?


“By the way, Captain Argud and Vice Captain Verivela introduced the store to this kid.”




So they were the captain and vice captain?

That reminds me, I completely forgot to introduce myself at that time.


“I’ll ask you once again.
Is it true that your tent was stolen?”


“Uh, no.
I guess it’s a misunderstanding?”


“You guys, I want to ask for some details, so I’d like you to come with me.”


“N, no.
We are mistaken.
It’s alright now.”


“Too bad, I have a lot of questions to ask.
I won’t go easy on you if you run away though?”


The caretaker’s comrades appeared as if surrounding the adventurers.

They tried to escape, but were soon caught and taken away.


“Um, thank you very much.”


“Nah, sorry.
I came here a little bit late.”


“No, no.
I was saved thanks to you.
Um… how do you know this is my tent?”


“I saw you guys entering the old man’s store.
After that I met the captain, and he asked me about you.”




He was concerned whether you can set up the tent by yourself.”


So he was concerned about me…I’m somewhat a little embarrassed.

Let’s thank him once again when we see each other next time.


“Are you hurt?”


I’m all right.”


“I see.
That’s good.”


After I saw the caretaker off to return to his work, I took another break.

My body still trembled a little due to the earlier incident.

I slowly drank a cup of tea and took deep breaths.

Haa~ I was glad the caretaker helped me.
