I was running down the stairs as fast as I can, I was running away from the roof of my apartment and as soon as I reached the door of my house I went in and looked the door behind me, My dad who was setting up the table for dinner looked at me and asked
"Did something happen Touya? You look terrified"
"I-I was running away"
"Running away from what?"
"R-running from...the roof...?" I realized that I forgot what I was running away from
"What do you mean? Did something happen on the roof?"
"I was running away from the rain" I lied to my dad to not worry him
"Ah I see, you didn't have to run you know, anyways wash your hands for dinner"
I entered my room, I feel so tired yet I don't remember doing any tiring work today and my eyes feel as if they have been crying and yet I don't remember crying today...I took the pillow from my bed on which where my school uniform are laid to be dried and I slept on the couch, I was staring at my school ID which was on the couch, The ID had a bad picture of mine where my black hair looked brown and below the picture my name Touya Kazuto was written in bold letters I threw the ID onto the bed...As soon as I turned the lights off I slept like a rock
My eyes welt warm and it felt like my face was warming up in the sunlight, I slowly opened my eyes as they adjusted to the surrounding brightness and when my eyes adjusted to the brightness I looked around to find out that I was sleeping under a tree where my body was in the shade of the tree and my head in the sunlight, I was in a grassy plain and I was an inch close to freaking out and panicking but I didn't and took a couple of deep breaths and started running around screaming....I freaked out
After screaming my brains out I was thirsty and hungry and I turned back hoping to find some fruits on the tree I was sleeping under and to my supress behind me was a river and not a tree and I basically found out that I got lost near a river
As I was drinking the water from the river which to my surprise wasn't so dirty I heard the sound of a horse neighing and when I turned back I saw a brown horse rearing behind me and when it landed its front feet I saw brown hair swaying down and what followed the hair was a beautiful blue eyed girl's face who looked my age but she was wearing some metal armour on top of a leather t shirt I think and after seeing her I decided that she was a cosplayer or I am in a movie studio and am about to be scolded by the actress of the film
She got down from the horse and pulled out the knife which was attached to her waist and said
"Who are and what is with those strange cloths"
Well I was in my PJs so it is kinda ok to call them strange but what she's wearing is clearly more strange and what is up with that knife...in reflex to the knife I raised my hands
"M-My name is Touya Kazuto and I mean no harm" After saying that I felt so embarrassed and realized that I watched too much of GOT
"Where are you from? And what are you doing in those weird cloths"
"MY PAIJAMAS ARE NOT WEIRD" I shouted after getting annoyed of being told that my PJs are weird
She stepped towards me and pointed the knife at my face
"I asked where you are from Touya"
" I am from Saitama city and I live with my father" I felt like fainting
"What about your mother?"
"...."I couldn't answer her for some reason, I thought I got over it and I moved on
~Paaannnnggg~.....My stomach made a monstrous hunger pang and my face became as red as a tomato from embarrassment
She lowered her knife "looks like you are just lost and are hungry, come with me I will treat you to breakfast"
I wonder if my hunger pang saved my life or embarrassed me for the rest of my life in front of a beautiful girl
I almost fainted again and this time I had a more valid reason, The place where she took me with her on her horse was to a street filled with people in old cloths and the builds surrounding me were all of bricks...the whole place was as if it was back in medieval time and the place was way too big for it to be a film studio, This was when I realized that I was either delusional or dreaming or am in a whole different world....all of them seemed impossible for the given situation except for me being delusional
I was about to freak out but luckily this time I was way to hungry to freak out, I and the girl went inside a brick building where there were huge muscular and most of them bald drunk men eating and enjoying with each other, Definitely not what you would normally see everyday
I and the girl sat down at a wooden table and she ordered something from the waiter, before you scold me and say you are not a man to make a girl pay the bill you have to remember that I don't have a single penny with me and I don't even know what kind of currency these people use and as hungry as I am I couldn't care less
The waiter brought some meat with a stick poked into it and I chomped on it with everything I had and surprisingly it was tasty and filled my stomach
"Woah slow down or you will chock on the meat" The girl said
"Gaar arga graa" I tried to say I can't help it but with my mouth full with meat
"Well I guess you were hungry, anyways now for real who are you Touya? The cloths you wear are not from around here and you seem to not have any money and also you say you are from saitama city which I have never heard of before"
Yep I thought it was like this, I rested my head on my arms and said "I think I am from A-another world"
"Another world? What is the meaning of that?"
I couldn't tell if she meant it literally or was asking what rubbish I was talking "Well I am from a really far far away place and I don't know how I ended up here or where I am"
"Basically you have a memory loss? Do I have to believe that?"
"I-I swear I am not lying" I have been shuttering a lot lately due to anxiety
She sighed a long sigh and said "well no matter how I see it you don't have a reason to lie, anyways my name is Kaori Yamauchi and I am a Valkyrie in training and I have decided to help you"
"Will you really help me?"
"Yep coz I can't ignore your sorry ass"
"Thank you so much"
"Well 1st things 1st we have to get you some work so that you can pay for your own meals and necessities"
"I will do anything from house cleaning to cooking"
"What? That's the work of girls not a boys work"
I can clearly see that this world still doesn't have equality in it "ah I see, what kind of jobs can I do then?"
"I know this guy who owns a weapons store and I am pretty sure he was looking for young meat-I mean men for work"
The only weapons store I have seen in my life is in GTA games and the way she turned meat to men is suspicious but do I even have a choice "I-I will do it"
"that's more like it, anyways 1st of all we need to buy you a new pair of cloths coz I am sure no one is going to hire you in that thing"
She just called my cute bunny PJs 'that thing' T-T "Sure, and I will definitely pay you back once I make some money"
"no no no don't worry about it, Even Valkyrie in training get paid a lot"
She and I went to many cloth shops and she made me try many cloths on(the trail rooms were....not really ideal) after that we ate more meat for lunch and she took me to the weapons shop, the board of it said 'Bilbard's Weaponry and armoury' so apparently my bosses name is Bilbard
We went inside the house and the weaponry store was way different from the one from GTAs, The thing is it was filled with swords,bows and metal armour and There was a wooden counter in front of the entrance door, the person in the store-Bilbard- is a blad muscular man with no facial hair and he wore a green apron which kinda looked funny on him
"Hey Bil this young lad here is Touya and I think he will be perfect to work under ya" said kaori while patting my back
"This skinny guy? You sure?" Said Bilbard
"I am sure I can handle things" said an idiot who did not know what he was getting himself into
"Lad can talk atleast, well I will take care of him now kaori so you can go" Said Bil
"Roger that Bil and about the pay"
"Depends on how he will do today"
"got it" said Kaori as she left the shop
"So shall we start?" Asked the 6ft bald gaint
"Y-yes" Said the weak 5ft idiot
Did I mention that Bilbard is a slave driver, I mean I had clean the whole store, greet the costumers, make the costumers buy something even if its just anything in the store and also clean the whole store...again but he's really funny tho atleast his jokes not his face...his face is scary af, Kaori came back in the evening and apparently Bilbard loved me and hired me for some Quenzy which is this worlds currency and I don't really know how much it is but it's a lot it seems
Kaori took me to a hotel place and told me that I would have to stay in the hotel for couple of days till Kaori can trust me and allow me into her house which I rejected tho she had a point that I couldn't stay at the hotel forever
The hotel room wasn't too bad and the bed was comfy enough to sleep properly, I felt so tired that I almost fell asleep before changing into my PJ, while I was changing my cloths I got depressed thinking what my dad is feeling right now....Anyways I laid down on the bed thinking how my new life in another world is starting just like in the animes and mangas....and I fell asleep thinking that
I woke up to the sound of my alarm and looked around, I was in my room and the time was 6 am in the morning, the same time I always get up everyday, I didn't even feel tired anymore....the time I spent in that world, with Kaori and Bilbard....was it all a strange dream? I got up to get ready for school thinking it must have been a strange dream
