when I noticed, dazzling light come to my dark world.
the light is a little too much made me can’t open my eyes.
No, isn’t that because my eyes weakened?
“Second son was also born, with this Hawkwood house is secured.”
I could heard a man voices with age between 30~40 years old.
“Dear, please give this child a name. ”
this time, it was the voice of a woman likely in her twenties.
“This child, has dark black hair with tinge of gray, his pupil is brown ”
“oh well. It’s look like it’s the result of your and my genes mixed. Or something similiar to that ” [TL : not very sure about this line [こうなったみたい]] “Hmm …… ash, black, brown ……”
“dear, even if he is your second son please give him a suitable name or are you actually still clueless about his name yet?”
“N, No, there is no wa…….alright, that child name is Ash ”
such conversation between a man and a woman could be heard.
“so it’s Ash. Well, I think it’s not bad name ”
I was embraced by someone arms.
“your name is Ash. My lovely boy.”
whispering voice of a woman could be heard near my ears.
At this point, I realized.
I think, don’t tell me…………did I reincarnated as a baby?
—-That, can’t be real.
Three years elapsed.
By this time, sinceI realized that I was reincarnated as a baby in different world which is not earth, I already accepting the reality.
Fortunately, though this is considerably rural town, my parents is noble who managed this town.
It is the so-called feudal lord of this area.
Therefore I don’t have any worry about my daily life.
moreover, if I received education for nobles, mainly I could undertand the letters from this world and it’s history.
From the conversation between my family member, I also know that magic exists in this world.
In addition, this rural town [Raan] in which my father is it’s lord is under Runreshia kingdom, and it seems it’s kingdom with most advanced Magic Technology on the continent.
I lived in a place with only a little more than a hundred population, this town is extremely far away from capital therefore, it seems only both my parents can use magic.
However, if parents could use magic then, perhaps I also can use it.
I’m looking forward to it.
Then, recently, I’m starting to see strange things sometimes.
when I’m looking at the hole, a semi-transparent womans.
semi-transparent womans with wings growing from her back looking on the ground from the sky.
when I’m looking at the lake, semi-transparent womans playing in the water.
when I’m looking at the fire in the hearth, semi-transparent womans dancing inside the flames.
But, maybe it was something that visible only to my eyes.
furthermore, that womans, all of them is naked.
though, most of that womans size is comparable to dolls size.
their average height is between thiry to fifty centimeters.
for that reason, even if they’re naked there is no reason for me to get excited over them.
some of them is beauties with more than 8 heads, in doll size of course.
I wonder if they’re fairies or somekind of spirits?
I’m trying to talk with my parents about this matter.
my usual gentle parents, their expressions suddenly become very serious,
“Okay, Ash. Don’t tell anyone about this except for your family. You must absolutely do this. ”
“Ash, if this spirits trying to talk to you, you must absolutely not to talkback to them. Just pretend that you never heard them ”
And, their tone is seriously scary.
this time, I know that the semi-transparent womans that I saw with my eyes are acually spirits.
And, without knowing anything, both my parents made me promise to them to not saying a thing about the spirits to other people.
No, rather than a promise, they made me vowed to them.
my parents even threatening me—that if I ever break my promise, I will be taken by scary people.
my body age is indeed tht of 3 years-old-kid, but my mental age is that of adult, so this kind of thing is less effective and can’t even considered as a threat for me.
but, the fact that I can see the spirit, in this world, or at least in this country isn’t something very good. at least that what I feel from my parents attitude.
Ten years have passed since I reincarnated.
the chance for me to see the spirits increasing along with my age.
Compared to seven years ago, the figure of the spirits that I say become more and more vivid.
up till now, I’ve never speak to them even once.
this spirits, especially the one that I saw look like girls haven’t notice this.
actually I want to talk to them, but I’m hestitating since I already promising my parents.
as for My misanthropy, even after reincarnated I still can’t cure my distrust to human.
However, I give my gratitude to my parents who raise me with love.
yes, for that reason alone I won’t break my promise.
However, I also could feel that my parents affection to me thinned along the time.
though I know the reason for that.
it’s because I don’t have talent for magic.
no matter ho much my parents zealously teaching me, I just can’t use magic.
I can’t understand magic theory and practice it.
no matter how much I try it, my body can’t handle much stream of Magical Energy (Mana ).
let alone me and older brother, even compared to my younger brother, and three younger sister, my talent in magic can’t beat them.
it seems in Runreshia Kingdom, someone with magical power is greatly valued.
Anyway for the commoner to become a noble, it’s look like they only need magical talent.
and yet I don’t have that kind of talent in magic in me.
even if i make an effort, it’s useless because my magic is little to none. [TL : need someone to fix this [ 努力しても、魔力自体が少ないのでどうしようもなかった。]] no matter how desperately I tried to memorize the spell and Magical Letter (Rune ), It’s futile I can’t remember it even after such great effort.
and, the amount of magical power for each person is absolute since he born, it seems there is no way to increase it.
without talent to use magic, my prospect isn’t be very good in the future.
anyway, in the first place big nobles will distributing their plot of land to their childrens, for small to medium nobles their second and third son will become priest, they have no thing to spare except for the eldest son.
as long as the eldest son not death, death by accident, or death in a war, for the rest of their life the rest of the childrens will be dependant(nuisance).
if for example they’re especially talented in magic, or has other special talent lie that, they will become adopted child of big nobles in the territory, and has possibility to succeding their properties.
which is why there is no possibility to become an adopted child if magical talent is included in it.
Well, it was fine to become a dependent* while looking at my surrounding, I guess it was fine to eat from the hand of my older brother. [TL : an adult who has yet to get his inheritance, but I choose to write it as dependent] even if my misanthropy healed, maybe I will be a dependent for the rest of my life, maybe I can’t get married——–no, I’m not worried about that, though I’m not sure about that.
like child of peasant, they sold to the slave trader is already everyday occurence in this world.
I live in a rural town [Raan], with it’s warm climate and good fertility it produced good harvests of crops, knowing that I know that at least I won’t be sold into slavery.
However, I only feel it was strange for parents to sell their child and for child to sell their parents, maybe they feel guilty.
as for me, even when I live in a place with little more than a hundred residents, I hardly interacting with them.
I don’t even playing with the childrens from the same age, so I don’t have any close friend.
it seems it has some relation with my thirty years-old mental age.
but it’s look ike this case is beyond that, I clearly avoided something that will resulting me to socializing with others.
it’s look like I still has my misanthropy and distrust toward humans, even after reincarnated I still continue to avoid others.
I’m aware that all residents already know about this.
If I’m not the son of the feudal lord, I will surely will be bullied by the childrens of the town.
right now I’m not bullied yet but, they treat me like I’m a freak.
Usually I avoid them, they also usually avoiding me.
Usually my siblings looking down at me because I’m not talented, I was alone all this time.
usually I secluding myself in my room, or walking around the forest to wasting my time.
recently, my parents expectation from me isn’t that high, so there is many cases where I has lot of free time.
learning magic too, because of my other siblings, both my parents only give me a task, so my self-study time is increasing.
today too, I’m walking around inside the forest.
for The time being, I bring a wooden sword for self-defense.
though magic is popular in this country, as a noble I also leaning swordmanship from my father to some extent.
but, it’s look like I also don’t have that much talent for swordmanship.
Well, this forest only has few dangerous animals, in this case I won’t have any chance to use this wooden sword.
I already walked quite deep in the forest.
now it’s almost the time for me to go home—I have the feeling that something is behind me.
when I’m turning around…….there is a bear.
no, no way, this forest not supposed to have bears live in it.
I wonder if it comes from another forest?
Anyway, I must not escape.
pretending to be dead is no good, I’ve seen in the net before I reincarnated that doing that act in front of hungry bear is suicide.
I stepping back as for not provoke that bear, trying to take some distance.
But — that bear coming to attack me at breakneck speed!
I’m looking behind, and lose my chance to running away.
However, I don’t feel like to running away.
So I chose to climb to a nearby tree.
Fortunately, always alone and didn’t have any friends, I always playing tree before the bear could catch me, I somehow already ascended to the top of the tree.
just like that, I hope the bear will give up and leave.
But it’s seems that bear is very hungry, there is no indication that he will leave.
On the contrary, I already rising high on the tree.
then I suddenly turned pale because I remember that some kinds of bear species is adept at tree climbing.
dangerous … it’s Really dangerous.
above the branches, I’m trembling all over holding my head.
At a time like this, there is several figures of semi-transparent woman flying on the air.
looking at me, they raise their finger while laughing at me.
what so amusing about this?.
to this man, who is almost get himself biten and eaten by a bear.
so it’s not just human the spirits is also at the same level as them both of them are shit?
sensing the death approaching me, I lost my cool.
I forget the fow to my parents,
“what so amusing?!! I’m gonna pluck that wings of yours!!”
And, I unentionally shouting out my anger.
while I’m looking at those spirits.
those spirit showing a shocking face.
and, they’re whispering something in low voices, and look like agreed on something.
one representative of those spirits approaching me.
“Ne~e, ne~e, you, can you see us? Despite only a human ”
what!, hearing that I tilting my head.
“yeah, I can see you!”
I desperately answer her.
“He~~~e, even hear our voices. You really can see us, are you an expert Druid or a Shaman ”
Ah!, my parent said that they’re heretic magician.
“I will never learning forbidden arts. Just for you know I’m learning Magic Letter (Rune ) and True magic ”
“””” Eeeeee~~~~~~eeeeeeeeh!!!?????’ “‘”‘ ”
those spirits simultanously screaming.
“this, this human, with more training he will become spirit tamer for us, and he said he can hear us!”
“He ‘s a genius! really genius!”
“…… we have no choice than recognize your natural talent.”
“Spirit Tamer is rare, it’s because they must be gifted with that talent since they’re born ”
“if you continue to raising your skill then, you will become the Great legendary class spirit tamer!”
“and Here, he will become a food for that bear, his talent is wasted!”
