「Oh, are you an adventurer?」
After the young woman was saved from the monster who was attacking her, she suddenly asked me if I was an adventurer.
「I guess I am jobless?」
I answered her question while tearing off the fur of the demon monster.
「Jobless? I haven’t heard of such a thing. You seemed very used to fighting, are you perhaps in a Guild?」
I could have been an adventurer instead of being jobless. I once had the idea of being one but I didn’t since it seems troublesome.
「Then what is your job?」
「None. Didn’t I say I was Jobless? If I am forced to, I’ll just defeat a monster and earn some money.」
「For you to earn your daily income…you’re still in your teens,right? But if you are strong enough to knock down chimeras, certainly ther must be a reason… for your parents, maybe?」
「No. I had my foster parent but he died one year ago.」
「…..I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have asked.」
「No, don’t worry about it. Then, I’m going now.」
After I finished skinning the fur, I started to leave,
The young woman stopped me rom leaving,
「Do you have any relatives?」
「No. I live alone, but what does that got to do with this?」
I was wondering why the woman strangely seemed to consider my words. But I got my answer immediately,
「I have a proposal for you! …Do you want to be an adventurer?」
That conversation is where it all started. I’m sure that if I did not save that woman, I would spend the rest of my life hunting down monsters to earn money ’till the day my life ends.
Thanks to this chance encounter, I of the jobclass,jobless, would go to adventurer training institution–Royal Academy of Jupiter as an adventurer cadet.
