Jack of all Trades – 42

The Template Comes Suddenly


The Silver Sky inn had three floors. Though, it might be more accurate to say four, as there was an underground bathing area. Finding out that this inn also had a bath was enough to make my satisfaction reach its peak.

We were put up in rooms on the third floor. Separate rooms. We didn’t want any more accidents happening! It was important to maintain an environment that was conducive to a peaceful party.

 

It was decided that we would meet at the dining area for a late lunch after we settled in our rooms. After that, we would go out into the city and leisurely make our way to the guild. Joshua had told us where to find it. Though, there was also a guidebook sold at the counter which I had bought.

 

Now, I think this is enough unpacking.

The Silver Sky inn faced the city streets, giving you a nice view of Spiris when you opened the window.

 

“Woah… this place is huge…”

 

Spiris, the city that spread across the plains. The roads here were flat. Having been built over such calm terrain, it was a good place for people who hated going up slopes and stairs.

 

But it was also wide. Especially if compared to Fhiraldo. So maybe it wasn’t all that great for people who hated to exercise. Still, it was a city. A big city.

 

…Right, I can’t be staring out this window all day. I had an appointment in the dining hall. Always be five minutes early. That’s my motto.

 

I lock up the room and head downstairs. There are decorative objects placed everywhere that look quite expensive. I would have to be careful not to bump into anything here. It could end in me having to sell the ancient elven weapons. No, I would never do that.

 

I keep a good distance as I pass by and walk through the entrance room and into the dining area. The place looked more like a restaurant. It was completely different compared to the ordinary dining hall at the Spring Wind inn. I was very fond of that place, but I didn’t hate the atmosphere here either. Though, it did make you a little self-conscious about what you were wearing.

 

In fact, even now I generally wore my convenient store uniform. It had become rather raggedy after being through the forest, fights with monsters and multiple washes. But I couldn’t throw it away. It was the last connection I had to a home I could never return to. I did have underwear and shirts to change into, but this black uniform with its dress shirt and necktie was essentially my best suit. I did sew the parts that had ripped and patched up some holes, but it was becoming clear that I would soon have to start wearing normal clothes from this world… These were more shabby than vintage at this point. Hey, it was just like the hollow bag.

Okay, fine. I would buy new clothes before heading to the guild!

 

“Asagi. You are blocking me from entering.”

“Oh, Daniela. Sorry, sorry. Let’s eat then.”

 

Daniela had been waiting behind me. I hadn’t noticed as I was so distracted by my fashion related dilemma…

 

Not only the restaurant itself, but the food was also incredibly refined. But at the same time, it was still filling. Master Daniela seemed quite satisfied as well. We were now sitting down and enjoying a small break after the meal. There were not many people around as it wasn’t really a mealtime hour.

 

“Ah, I ate a lot… We should take a walk to help it settle.”

“Oh, Daniela. I want to buy some clothes.”

“Clothes?”

 

She looks at me with a smirk and folds her arms in front of her. Oh, now this was getting embarrassing…

 

“Yes, I see it now. I did not care at first, as it is your traditional attire, but it is quite worn, really. I hope it was not like that originally?”

“Of course not. It was very nice at first… But its become a victim of my daily adventures.”

“Well, then you should buy some nice clothes somewhere nearby. Both your rank and your level has gone up on this journey. You might as well change all of your equipment too.”

 

Huh? Has my rank gone up already? Daniela sees my surprise and chuckles.

 

“You killed those orcs remember? It would have surely gone up a little.”

“Ohh, right. The wyvern seems to have wiped my memory.”

 

It had completely escaped me that we did that. Hmm, perhaps I should look at my status. I hadn’t checked it in a while. And so I call it up as I always did.
