Chapter 1: Dismissal
“You should retire already.”
That was advice from my fellow party members (dismissal notice).
Thus, my life as an adventurer was over.
◇ ◇ ◇ ◇ ◇
I started adventuring five years ago, there’s no cheat, no relationships, it’s inevitable to become an adventurer.
I didn’t have talent for magic.
However, I came to be able to use it a little by studying, but I cannot compare to those that have trained since childhood.
My childhood kendo training helped me a lot.
Most of the people becoming swordsmen do not know how to wield a sword since they were previously farmers. Because of their lack of training they have no concept of foot work making them quite noisy when moving.
While I was not able to beat those that became knights, I was better than those around me.
However, during a quest when I was approaching 30 with my physical strength starting to wane, I took an arrow to the knee. (TN: Seems like this takes place in Skyrim.)
Even though my wound healed to a certain extent thanks to magic, I thought about the advice I received (Dismissal notice) and decided it was time to retire from adventuring. (TN: He could just settle down and become a town guard.)
Thus, my life as an adventurer ended after five years.
