Chapter 2 – Disposal

 

“Since you received no bids, you’re free to leave.”

An old man with gray hair, dressed in white clothes like a priest’s uniform, told me I could go. He looked like a good-natured old man, but he addressed the situation bluntly.

Now that the auction is over, the students are gathered in the waiting rooms of their respective countries, and I was brought to a separate room for anyone who didn’t receive bids. The old man handed me a sword and a small leather bag.

“This is?”

“It’s a sword and a small amount of money to live for a while. I feel sorry that you ended up being a [Chef], but we can’t send you back to your former world, so please take these as a parting gift.”

Are they going to throw me out after kidnapping me into this world, without me having any acquaintances or understanding of local customs? I don’t know what to do, but rather than blame this person, I should be grateful.

I’ve lived alone so far, so I don’t have any problem with continuing to live alone. I’m more concerned about the amount of money they gave me. How much there actually is will determine the difficulty of my life from now on.

“If it were compared to a typical household income, it would be enough to support a family of four for half a year.”

Well, it’s not that bad, is it? If I wanted to ask for more, there’d be no limit.

“That amount of money is sufficient, so what about the sword?”

“In this world, there exists a demon king and his demon subordinates, and thus monsters also exist. You, as a [Chef], will need to learn to protect yourself.”

A quiet huh floated out of my mouth as I remembered that the purpose of us being summoned into this world was to fight the demon king, demons, and monsters. A chill ran down my spine.

I lived in Japan my whole life, and saw nothing of battles or war, but staring at my sword, I felt I’d now been thrust into a world where life was cheap.

The stone building where the auction was located was apparently a temple specifically for performing summoning rituals, and was located in the Rade Crude Empire. All the money that had been obtained from our auction would be donated to the temple.

Ah, that’s right, I wasn’t sold. It seems the temple needs a great deal of money to prepare for summoning the hero.

It sucks that this religion is responsible for human trafficking in this world, but considering the history of Earth’s religions, which spearheaded wars, racism, oppression, and other evils, I feel like this other world’s religion is no different.

I left the temple through a door. It was absolutely massive, about five meters high, but no matter which way one looked at it, there was only a door. There didn’t seem to be a building or room on either side of it.

It was like a convenient tool from a blue raccoon’s pocket* except for the size and the fact it was a double door. Apparently, I have to pass through this door in order to leave.

“This is called a Transfer Gate.”

Ooohhh, it’s that fantasy trope!

“Here, Sumeragi-dono will be transferred to a random country through this Transfer Gate.”

“Uh… random, you say?”

“It’s hard to be certain, but you don’t belong to any country. More accurately, no country wants you. So, you are supposed to live your new life in this world in a randomly chosen country.”

You don’t have to blatantly say no one wants me! Please be at least a little hesitant to say it, for the sake of my feelings!

“Tsukuru-kun!”

I looked back when someone called my name. It was Ichinose, with some stranger and a few other students.

“We’ll see each other again, won’t we?”

“I’m free now, so if we’re lucky, I think we’ll meet again…”

You never know what could happen in a fantasy world. After all, monsters exist, so I might get eaten.

The man behind Ichinose seemed to be an official guardian of hers from whatever country. She must have wanted to see me off as I went through that door, but the people behind her were clearly looking at me with contempt.

Who are you people to look at me like that? I wanted to say it out loud, but it was better to ignore them.

“It’s about time, Ichinose-dono.”

An official calls Ichinose. And he’s giving a signal to the old priest.

He must have signaled the priest to send me to the other side of the door faster.

“I want… I want you to say we’ll meet again… I wonder if…”

“Y-yeah, see you later.”

I stood in front of the door and took a deep breath. When I realized my new life was about to begin, any words I might have had to say died in my throat. Now―

*thud*

Someone shoved me through the door.

 

◆ ◇ ◆ ◇ ◆ ◇ ◆ ◇ ◆ ◇ ◆ ◇ ◆

 

“…”

I was currently processing my situation.

I was told that passing through that huge door would send me to a random country…

However, what lay before me was neither a country, nor a town, nor a building, but a large tree, the likes of which you wouldn’t find in Japan. Ankle-deep grass spread in all directions like a soft, bright green carpet. It was a forest.

“…I’ve been tricked.”

It took me a few minutes to accept what I was looking at, and a few more minutes to accept what had happened to me.

“That son of a bitch!”

There was no door behind me. I was thrown out here on a one-way trip.

I’d basically been dropped into the lion’s den, and would have to prepare for a primitive life, where if something bad happened, I wouldn’t see the light of tomorrow. I wasn’t given a choice in the matter.

That shitty old man was throwing me away, like a poor, honest, ignorant boy. Well this honest boy won’t forget what you’ve done, you hear me? Hey!

I let out a big, long sigh and took a few breaths to calm my stomach. I told myself this development was a common trope in fantasy light novel stories. It helps to remember that, but the important question is, how am I supposed to live in this forest?

For now, let’s confirm my status plate again. It’s not as if my [Chef] job will have mysteriously changed if I check it one more time, but I just feel like clinging to something, anything familiar, to start thinking of ideas.

 

Name : Tsukuru Sumeragi
Job : Chef, Level 1
Skills : [Cooking] [Ignition] [Dismantling] [Detailed Appraisal] [Material Storage]

 

The list hadn’t changed at all. I didn’t expect it to, but still. What I really wanted to know about were the current skills.

The first one was [Detailed Appraisal]. I think it’s like the [Appraisal] trope you see in typical light novels. Because it’s specified as being Detailed, I expect it might be a superior version.

I tried using [Detailed Appraisal] on the big tree in front of me.

Big Tree ⇒ A tree that has been growing for thousands of years in the Great Forest of Borf, an unexplored magical area.

“I know it’s a big tree!”

I touched the explanation that appeared in front of me, and it expanded with even more information.

Giant Bez Tree ⇒ A tree that has been growing for thousands of years in the Great Forest of Borf, an unexplored magical area.

So it’s a Bez tree. If I touch the appraisal, it will give extra information, eh? So that’s why it’s [Detailed Appraisal]? I have to test this out some more.

I brought up my status again to try something.

 

Name : Tsukuru Sumeragi
Job : Chef, Level 1

Skills : [Cooking] [Ignition] [Dismantling] [Detailed Appraisal] [Material Storage]

Attributes : HP [G] | MP [G] | STR [G] | INT [C] | AGI [G] | DEX [EX] | LUK [EX]

 

I tried to appraise myself with [Detailed Appraisal] and… the amount of data had increased, now there was a fourth line for Abilities. Among them, the most eye-catching was DEX [EX] and LUK [EX].

“What’s this [EX] for? Hmm, it’s certainly not entrance, exterior… maybe extra?”

In light novels, [EX] is better than  [A] and  [S], isn’t it? But I don’t think [DEX] or [LUK] would be useful in battle, even if it’s [EX]. No wait, [LUK] may be useful, but the trouble is, how do I know what it’s doing?

“But this is just… all of them suck except [DEX] and [LUK]. Somehow [INT] is [C], but everything else is [G].”

I think [G] is probably the lowest. I’m going to be depressed now.

“Come to think of it, what happens if I appraise [Detailed Appraisal] with [Detailed Appraisal]?”

Detailed Appraisal ⇒ A superior level of appraisal! It will tell you anything!

“What’s up with this explanation!?”

I threw the status plate on the ground.

“N-not good, not good. Calm down!”

Murmuring that myself, I pick up the status plate and cleaned the dirt off of it. Then, I tried it on the other skills.

Cooking ⇒ You can cook anything to eat! You don’t always need to use a knife, but when you do, your knife skills will be amazing! Your control of open flames will be perfect, and you can even detoxify poison!

Ignition ⇒ You can set things on fire!

Dismantling ⇒ You can take apart anything you touch!

Material Storage ⇒ You can store anything and take it back out exactly like it was before!

I threw the status plate down again. I was satisfied with the effectiveness and ability of my skills, but the explanations were pissing me off.

Why isn’t it describing things normally like with the giant Bez tree? Is it making fun of me?

No, no, calm down, me!

I picked up the status plate again and cleaned it off.

Now that I knew the effects and properties of my skills, I tried storing the status plate in my hand into [Material Storage].

“Storage.”

The status plate disappeared, and a message appeared in front of me.

The status plate was stored in [Material Storage].

I was able to store it without any problem. I also stored the cash and sword I got from that shitty old man.

The leather bag (small) and copper one-handed sword were stored in [Material Storage].

A copper sword, isn’t that like newbie equipment in a game? Well, there was no way they’d give me some kind of national treasure if they were just going to throw me out here like trash.

“Now that I know my status and abilities… there’s nothing left but to get started, right? So… what exactly am I supposed to do first? Do I need to find food, water, and a bed?”

Finding water would come first, it was much more important than food. I picked up a straight branch about one meter long, stood it up on one end, and let it fall over.

My [LUK] is [EX] so it should work in my favor. I started walking in the direction the branch pointed when it fell.

I didn’t know how long I’d have to walk, so I took the branch along as a cane. Reusing it.

I walked for a while. The grass was overgrown and made things more difficult, and sometimes I tripped and fell on the roots of a large tree, but the stick was a big help.

I think I already walked like thirty minutes. Assuming a speed of four kilometers per hour, that’s two kilometers. I’m so tired. It hasn’t even been that long, but to think this is what my future looks like…

I missed the paved roads of Japan, and started to feel grateful that I’d been able to live there.

I think it’s been about an hour since I started walking.

The grass obscures the uneven ground, and the cane always supports me when I trip on something. I’d realized in that hour just how useful a cane really was.

I was tired, so I sat down on a log. I was thirsty, too, but I didn’t have any water. If I didn’t find a river or pond soon, I’d start to get sick.

  1. Thanks for the chapter. But there is an advice I want to give. If possible please translate LN of this work because I hear the author of this work says that latest LN volume exceed the story of the WN.

    also there might be possibility of slight change in story.

    Like

    1. Unfortunately, I didn’t have much fortune to buy the LN at the moment.
      But, probably in the future, when I have an excess income, i’ll consider to buy and translate it.

      Yeah, from what I’ve seen in the manga, there’s certainly some differences in the LN.

  2. The setting doesn’t make sense to me tbh. Why wouldn’t people want an expert cook for a dirt cheap price? Are they limited to one hero per client or something?

    Like

    1. I mean, if his initial price is 10,000 gold, then that is 0.3%-0.2% of the normal price of a hero. Surely someone could have bought two heroes, no?

      Like

      1. Yes, one country can bought more than one hero.
        But the thing is, they wanted a combat-related hero, and no one know about the chef job, so that’s why no country wants to buy him.

        Like

  3. I’m confused that nobody noticed the Ignition, Dismantling, and Material Storage skills. Setting things on fire, or deconstructing them on touch is pretty damn scary. Then there’s the storage… Imagine how much faster an army can march if they don’t need a fleet of porters to carry their tools and supplies.

    Those bidding countries are morons.
