“But they’re mostly going to work in the place where they’re recruiting people, right? “

“It should say their goals too.
It says this party here wants to conquer dungeons.”

It really is there.
Most people are low ranked.

“And then there’s this.”

He’s looking at… A pathway?

“There’s a training area there.
People gather there to test their skills, but some end up taking the opportunity to form parties.”

So it’s like a place where people can meet…

“Are you going to try looking for a party too?”

“I’m fine.
I’m not that interested in forming a party for now.”

That’s half true.
The other half is that I just don’t feel like I’m a part of this place.

I’ve been in this world for around fifty days, but I don’t really get the feeling that I’m living here.
I feel like I’m in a foreign country, going around looking at the sights.

I get it, but I can’t really wrap my mind around it.
I keep thinking that they’re going to defeat the demon king, and then all of a sudden I’ll be back in my world.
Or I guess it’s more like that’s what I’m hoping.

I’m excited about magic and skills and all that, but the comfort of my daily life just isn’t the same.

“Even though this is very clearly real…”

When I was with Rurika and Chris, I definitely wanted to be of help, but now that I’m alone, and the more time goes on, the more that resolve is wavering.

It’s like I got motivated, but as time goes on that enthusiasm is going away.

“Ou, you’re here too, Geitz?”

“…I’m done with what I had to do, so I figured I’d do a little exercise.”

“That’s perfect.
We’re gonna help this lost newbie.”

I’m lost in thought, when suddenly I feel a slap on my shoulder.


“You think too much, and at times like these, it’s better not to think about anything and move your body instead.
Right, Geitz?”

“You think too little leader, but you do have a point.
Come train with us for a bit.
Doing it with the same people all the time gets repetitive.

“You heard it.
Come on.”

I try to resist them as they forcibly take me away, but stop.

Maybe it really is a good idea to clear my head and just do some exercise.

“No one handles a shield better than Geitz.
Try hitting him first.”

I’m given a wooden sword, and face Geitz.

He has a smallish wooden sword and a shield.
He drops his stance, and waits for an attack.

I try going to the left and right to go around the shield, but he points it at me with minimal movements.
I try attacking, but he easily dodges and takes advantage of the fact that I’ve lost my balance to come at me with a counterattack.

I have to fall back, and this time swing the sword down hard.

There’s a dull noise, and the feeling in my hands is like if I just punched a boulder.
The shield didn’t even budge.
His stance is even lower than before, and this time he doesn’t counter, probably because he’s focusing on defense.

Then I try to mix it up by doing strong attacks and not so strong attacks.

At first it goes well.
I’m able to take advantage of the moment when he stops and manage to attack again.
But I’m guessing he’s gradually getting used to it, because he changes the way he deals with each blow depending on what kind of blow it is, and counterattacks.

I attack, trying to land at least one hit, but it all gets guarded, and the training ends when the wooden sword slips out of my hand.
