Brimming with Questions
Well then, I had finished receiving my weapons. I also ate at a random street stall. I thought I saw someone who resembled Daniela walking towards the park with an armful of street food, but maybe it was just me. My imagination, I guess.
I was thinking about what to do next, when certain words suddenly came back to me.
“‘Legs of the Forest Wolf,’ use it well.”
Yes, Beowulf’s enchantment. But what was an enchantment? I returned to my room at the Spring Wind inn in order to find out.

Hmm, just as I thought. It was displayed as a skill.
On whether or not it was a normal skill or a unique skill, well, it looked very much like the latter. Unless Beowulf went around giving this skill to everyone.
Thanks to ‘Jack of all Trades,’ I was able to understand how to use it. And ultimately, the skill known as the ‘Legs of the Forest Wolf’ was a perfect match for me.
Just as usual there was a 4-part split screen displayed in my brain, and I could see silver and green tinted wind whirling around my legs. I imagined that I was running, and just like the wind, I began to move so fast that it looked like I was flying. In another screen I was vaulting and changing direction while still in the air. This skill was broken…
Too broken, I think. I wasn’t confident that I could even use it. Also, I would probably get motion sickness. I’m sure a true protagonist would have no trouble figuring it out, but that wasn’t too likely here.
Well, at least I understood what it was. It was fucking amazing.
The other thing I was wondering about was enchantments. So there was such a thing? But who could I learn more from?
I roll around in my bed and think.
“Ahh…if only there was internet here…”
I think for a while and then mumble with frustration. Then I realize something.
“I could look it up in the library!”
Not that I knew that there was one here. But a bookstore would do as well. The sun had already reached its peak for the day, so I better get started. I dashed out of my room and went to look for Maris, the innkeeper. However, she was nowhere to be found.
I gave up looking and went outside, and there she was, doing the laundry.
“Oh, hello Asagi. What is it?”
She was hanging a large bed sheet onto a clothesline as she turned around to look at me.
“I just wanted to ask, is there a library or even a bookstore in this town?”
