Chapter 1: I Reincarnated Again

Author: 十一屋 翠 (Juuichiya Sui)


“Gugugaga (I am reincarnated once more.)”

Actually, maybe I can speak more casually in this life.

I, Rex, am a baby born into some family of farmers.

You ask why a mere baby has such a clear ego?

That would be because I was reincarnated and reborn.

I was a Hero in my previous life.

I wielded the strongest sword and defeated all my enemies and any monsters.

I had only fought to master the sword, but for some reason, I then started being touted as the Hero by everyone around me.

And then, having lived out my natural lifespan, I was reborn again.

Why did I say ‘again’, you ask?

It’s quite simple.
I have been reincarnated twice now.

My before-previous life, I was a Sage.

I mastered any and all magic there was, and became the strongest mage.

I, who had mastered not only the four elements that gave nature power, but also sacred magic and darkness magic, started being called the magical genius, and later the Sage by the people around me.

So that’s why I said ‘again’.

And that was why I was now thinking on how to live my third life while being held in my mother’s arms.

“Gugugaga (Yeah, I’ll just live plainly in this life.)”

After all, in my previous lives, I got caught up in all sorts of trouble due to being called the Sage or Hero.

Whether it was monster extermination, stopping the ruinous rituals of magicians led astray by the evil god, or subjugating a terrifying demon called the Demon King, the number of such disturbances was innumerable.

Moreover, compared to how much effort I had to put in, the rewards were, let’s say, modest, and quite crappy at that.

Fame as the Hero or rank as a noble, they were all just annoying, and I wasn’t grateful for them at all.

On the contrary, it created a lot of unwanted tensions, jealousy and envy! I might even have lost a hundred friends from it!

“Gugugaga (So, I will live a simple life this time around.)”

Gripping my tiny fists, I kept my determination in my heart.

“Gugugaga! (And I will become an adventurer! The very symbol of freedom!)”

Being an adventurer… it was a life and a profession I had longed to live and do, but had been held back due to being the Hero.

You’re free to do as you please.
And you are responsible for it.

I will live a simple life as an adventurer!!

And then, I turned fifteen.

In this world, people are deemed adults at fifteen, and children can leave their parents’ nest to look for work.

Although, since it’s really difficult to get hired when you have no connections, most usually just take over their parents’ work.

But still, the number of children going to towns aspiring to get their dream jobs wasn’t few either.

I, of course, belonged to the latter group.

“I’m going then, Dad, Mum.”

I said my farewells to the parents who had kindly raised me until that day.

“It’s your life.
So you should live as you please.”

“Take care, okay? If it ever gets too hard, you can come back any time, okay?”

Since I had been proclaiming that I wanted to become an adventurer ever since I was little, and never showed any signs of wavering, my parents weren’t opposed to me becoming an adventurer.

They had been against it for a while back when I was little, but since I never stopped saying I wanted to become an adventurer, they gave up eventually.

So yeah, it was worth the effort to get the hunters to let me help with hunting down monsters.

“I’m going then!”

With a sword at my hip and wearing armour made out of monster leather, I stepped out of the house.

My luggage was one small bag, but just that much was enough.

“Do your best, Rex!”

“Take care!”

Everyone from the village wished me well on my journey.

Seriously, everyone in this village is so nice.

“Thank you! I’m going then!”

With everyone’s cheering behind me, I left the village in high spirits.

“Now, I’m gonna be an adventurer!”

“The nearest town is Tougai, and it’ll take half a day to get there if I run.
I had my coming of age ceremony before noon, so it’s become kinda late.
I’ll have to hurry up a little, huh.”

Strengthening my legs with mana, I kicked the ground harder.

As I did so, I soared up into the air, and I broke through the clouds in the blink of an eye.

It wasn’t flight magic, I had just strengthened my legs and pushed off from the ground as hard as I could.

“Hmmm, let’s see, Tougai is… ah, I can see it, I can see it.”

Crossing above two mountains, I checked out what Tougai looked like.

“Should I go with short-range teleportation magic… ah, actually no, I shouldn’t.”

I was able to get to Tougai in an instant by using teleportation magic, but I had found something on the way so I decided against that.

“Since I’m here anyway, I’ll go hunt it.
Adventurers hunt monsters anyway!”

Indeed, there was the perfect monster just ahead of me.

“That colour… so it’s a Green Dragon.
It’s normal for a Dragon, but if I want to live a simple life, that kind of Dragon is just perfect.”

That’s right, I wanted to become an adventurer because adventurers are the symbols of freedom, but more than anything, I just wanted to live a simple life and not get involved in troublesome things.

If it had been a Golden Dragon, the strongest type, people might have been sceptical of whether a newbie really was able to hunt it down.

Thus, a Green Dragon was perfect.

“Now then, time for a quick hunt!”

I unsheathed the broadsword hanging at my waist and held it at the ready.

At first glance, it seemed like any old broadsword, but I had used permanent enchantment magic I had developed in my before-previous life on it and added durability, corrosion resistance, sharpness, each magical attribute, smite, and a bunch of other effects, so against a Green Dragon, it would be an easy victory.

But just glancing at it, it looked like a normal broadsword, so no one would notice its true value!

Well, blacksmiths in the countryside don’t have neither the equipment nor materials to sell high-quality weapons, and there was nothing I was capable of doing to the sword othe
