So those were my stats. My AGI seemed strangely high… I had a feeling that my running and walking speed had gone up, was this the reason for it…? Even when the forest wolves were chasing me, when all was said and done, they never caught up. Also, there was no magic. I’m crushed.
“Your AGI is extremely high, huh.”
The receptionist said cooly as she looked at my stats.
As we inspected it together, I heard someone burst into laughter at the bar.
“Only his AGI is high…cckk…ckk… He’s a rabbit after all…”
What an annoying bunch. What was Gardo even doing?
“Hey, you two… Don’t go around mocking a man’s status like that…”
So he was keeping them in check. I could see that Ness was sitting rather sullenly next to him. What happened to him? Had he been scolded by Gardo?
“Well, uh, let’s leave that stats for now. What’s more interesting is this skill…I think.”
I’ve been wondering about it too.
“This skill… It’s a unique skill.”
Just as she said this, everyone at the bar scrambled over to us as if rolling from their chairs. They reeked of alcohol!
“A unique skill!?”
“For the Black Rabbit!?”
“Hey, all you! It’s against regulation to look at someone’s skills without consent!!”
Gardo was shouting something in the back, but the crowd had no intention of pulling back now.
“Skill… ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’?”
“Huh? ‘Jack of all trades, master of none’?”
The room suddenly fell silent. What? What, was this in impressive skill?
Nope, that was not the case.
“Ahahahahaha! Jack of all trades, master of none!! I’m sure you hit the jackpot with such a name!”
“Ahahah! I’m finished! My stomach is about to burst!”
“Jack of all trades, master of none!! You can do anything, but you can’t do anything! Bwahahahaha!!”
“That’s amazing, Black Rabbit! You should be both the advanced guard and the rearguard!!”
I was surrounded by an unending storm of laughter. I could see Gardo and Ness standing back, in the corner of my vision, looking bewildered. Shit, they weren’t going to be any help…
What did I do to deserve this? Isn’t this just a little harsh?
Being stabbed by a thief, thrown out into the plains, attacked by a goblin, eating wolf meat and sleeping in trees, being chased by a whole pack of wolves, only to have the first town I run into ridicule me like this…
I felt quite discouraged for the first time in a while. My heart was getting colder by the minute. I wanted to get out of here. I silently reached for the pen on the counter and stabbed it into the flat of my palm.
The receptionist asked in surprise. I allowed the blood to drip onto the status card and then raised my head.
“Is that alright then?”
“Oh, yes… It’s complete…”
The status card was now registered to me. But for the present, I wanted nothing more than to leave this place.
