Jack of all Trades – 18


Well then, I was back in the fateful forest. I wasn’t such a veteran that I could sense what was around us. Were there forest wolves lurking close by?

“Ahh… I doubt there are any in this area.”

“Right. Well, let’s check our stats then… Or not, are there rules against checking party members stats?”

“No, there is not. And I’m quite curious about your AGI as well. Let’s see it.”

With Daniela’s permission, we took out our status cards and chanted the same old words together.

“Status open.”

Breaking news: Daniela was incredibly strong. But more importantly…

“You’re an elf?”

“Aye, a Light Elf. Hadn’t I told you?”

“Hmm, nope.”

“I see.”

An elf, huh… That was so fantasy-like. Her ears were indeed pointed. But I hadn’t even suspected it. Also, if she’s a light elf, then there must be other elves too.

“If you’re this strong, then you probably wouldn’t have had any trouble back there at the park?”

“Yes, they stood no chance… But, I would prefer to avoid fighting within the town. Also, it is not usual for me to be surrounded like that. My guard was down.”

“I suppose so… Well, I’ll be counting on you, then.”

If she was this strong, then our enemies should be easy to take down. Even so, I was not a fan of power leveling. I should do everything that it was possible for me to do.

“Hmm, I will do my best when the time calls for it, but I intend to adapt to your level most of the time. Regardless, your AGI is very high… You must be faster than me.”

“It’s the one thing I’m good at.”

“No, you mustn’t ridicule speed. Imagine this. You are suffering a one-sided attack at a speed that your eyes cannot catch.”

“…That would suck.”

“Wouldn’t it?”

It reeked of cheating. And there wasn’t supposed to be any allowances for the protagonist.

“Your MP is high for someone who has only just learned to use magic… No, perhaps the fact that you’ve begun to sense the energy has brought the numbers up.”

“Maybe. I do feel something now that I never did before.”

The magical energy that lay inside of me. A sensation that was all new. It was kind of, soft-like…

But I was of an age to find other people’s statuses much more interesting than my own sensations of softness. Especially this ‘Fresh Green Eye’ skill. It had the look of a unique skill.

“Daniela, isn’t that a unique skill as well? I guess it’s not that rare to have one then.”

“That’s not true. It’s very rare. We both just happen to have them.”

“Ah, I see… My skill, it allows me to visualize the handling of things and how to move.”

“Does that mean that you can skillfully use a weapon that you’ve picked up for the first time?”

“Uh… I guess so.”

“That’s, quite amazing?”

“The ‘Jack of all trades’ part is anyway. The problem is ‘Master of none.’ I still don’t quite understand it.”

Yes, even now I was stuck on the meaning of this skill. Part of me was worried that if I relied too heavily on this skill for handling weapons, I would one day suffer some terrible retaliation. That is one of the reasons I haven’t branched out, even though I probably could use just about any weapon.

  1. “A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.” It was previously meant as an compliment so I don’t see why those idiotic adventurers were laughing at him.

    • Seems to have all started with that drunk that didnt listen to Gardo till he squeezed the arm that had grabbed Asagi. Likely every time Gardo told them not to bother Asagi, the resentment he was afraid to direct at Gardo grew.
      He was a regular in the guild bar with a group of cronies. Easy to get drunks to make fun of a cowardly noob. Other adventures probably didn’t care but got in the habit of picking on him as cheap joke.
