Chapter 1

Hello .  |ω・)ノ (I don’t know if there are others that do this but I’m making this into my thing)

I decided I no longer want to make a different page for every chapter to make it easier for all of us . And also, chapters will be posted when I finish them . I’m not sure if I can follow a schedule .

I couldn’t decide whether or not I should continue with footnotes so I didn’t put any on this chapter as a test . Please give me feedback about that and let me know if you have other ideas for the names .

Chapter 1: When I first woke up

My first thought was, “I’m being breast-fed” . I still can’t see but, I’m probably correct .

I think I’m probably not some kind of reptile since reptiles don’t breast feed however, that information might not be reliable since this is a different world .

After 6 months, I was able to somewhat understand my circumstances . •My parents are from mixed races . I don’t know what race it is but I have mixed blood . By the way, it’s the humanoid type . •Skin color is deep blue, eye color is red and hair color is black . A man named Caam . (Thanks Kami-sama! With this, I won’t be raped in this fantasy world!) [TN: lol]

•Although our family isn’t poor, we are only just getting by •There are no humans in this village •Plenty of magic exists •There are skills

My father has indigo skin . The overall appearance is close to a human but, it’s somewhat lizard-like(Should I call him a Lizardman? He has scales as well) . My mother has white skin and red eyes . She has webbed hands and feet(A more human type of ? Is it something like that? Good thing I wasn’t born as a fish egg) . [TL: This guy is seriously rude…]

Well, I have a humanoid appearance, my father’s skin and my mother’s eyes . I don’t know where I got my black hair from . I think I’ll know once I see my grandparents but, until now, I still haven’t met them yet . Fortunately, my name is similar to the pronunciation of the reading of my previous name「Nagi」in English so I don’t really care . [TN: 凪=Nagi=calm=Caam, let me know if you have any better ideas]

I heard about it during my parent’s conversation . I was being carried by my mother as we walk around the village . With my physical strength, I can’t go with them on long walks yet . In half a year I think I’ll be able to do that . For now, I decided to check out the situation .

After half a year, the amount of baby food has increased . It’s a very thin porridge but it’s not made with rice . Is this the leftover bread in hot water? Then, the times I could grasp walking increased and my area of activities spread out but only limited to indoors . I was referred to as a “lively kid” by my parents . Inside is a 30 year old ossan in his previous life though . But right now, I’m the child of these people so I decided to act as a child as much as possible .

After another half a year, I can understand words, I was able to talk and I no longer fall over when I walk . I still don’t understand the characters . Nothing that resembles a books exists at our house so I haven’t seen the characters yet . Literacy is probably low .

When I was 3 years old, I was already able to run around near our house . I found someone I can call a childhood friend . She lives in our neighborhood . She almost looks like a human if not for the horns growing above her eyebrows A Japanese person would say she’s similar to an Oni . This childhood friend of mine is a shy and introverted person who rarely speaks . Since she has black hair and eyes, she looks Japanese . Her name is Suzuran, a cute flower like name . [Suzuran=lily of the valley]

I don’t know about this world, this country, or even the surrounding villages but, it seems that I’m going to attend a school like facility when I reach 5 years old . It may seem like it’s too soon but a 5 year old demon will look 2 to 3 times their age . In other words, they will look like 10 to 20 years old . So they look like high school students but are actually still kids inside!

「Ahー, I’m the reading, writing and calculation teacher Fig[フィグ] the arachne, yoー . The smarter kids can do it in 2 to 3 years but the slower kids will have to work harder during their 5th and 6th year, yoー . There’s also the instructor who’ll teach magic so there will be introductions during the magic lesson, yoー . 」 [TN: Imagine someone talking to a toddler . Fig’s attempting to do that]

Arachne are those that have the upper half of a human and the legs of a spider . What’s weird is a lot of their upper body is exposed . Is that okay for educating children? Aside from their chest, which is wrapped in cloth, they don’t wear anything else . That’s okay for now but, when the other boys grow up, it would cause various problems . As someone who has the mind of a healthy adult male, that has already caused me plenty of problems… I don’t know where to look .

And since she’s with children, she changes the way she speaks and it seems like she’s forcing herself to make conversation . It’s somewhat disappointing though since she’s a stunning silver short-haired girl . Well, you can also say that’s gap moe . I find myself stealing a glance at her sexy navel and midriff . Is this that men’s inherent nature thing? And isn’t that belly-button piercing a bit too much?

During the short break after Fig’s lesson, on the sunny part of the platform, the potted decorative plant suddenly moved . It jumped and landed on top of the teacher’s desk . Then, the plant suddenly transformed into a human form .

「I’m going to teach you the fundamentals of magic . I’m Birke[ビルケ] the Dryad, best regards . Even though I’m only good with earth and water attributes, I can still teach you a lot when it comes to the fundamentals . 」

Dryads are famous enough as it is . They’re something like the spirit of a tree and it seems that their skin color changes by dwelling in that tree . They’re like Japanese White Birch trees* . After that, they don’t hide anything at all . They only put their feet up to their shin in a planter so that they can grow . [I’m sure he’s comparing Dryads to birch trees but I didn’t really get it . ]

「By the way, this is Gaige-chan[ガイゲちゃん], my assistant Mandragora」

Birke sensei’s pulled out a weed-like grass that was growing by her feet . A 20cm tall girl appeared and let out a death metal-like scream that was mixed with the sound of scratching glass . Everyone in the classroom fainted on the spot .

【Faint Resistance Skill: 1】acquired .

Just before I fainted, I heard something like an announcement in my head . Is this that “favorable treatment” that Kami-sama was talking about?

It seems that there are other teachers but only the main ones were introduced on the first day . The contents of the lessons were like this: •Basic reading and writing •Simple calculation •The basics of the fundamentals of magic

We take lessons in the morning and help out in our homes in the afternoon . There are no wealthy families in this village but that seems to be normal . And it seems like the school will be closed during planting and harvesting seasons . I thought books didn’t exist since literacy rate was low but, I was proven wrong when I attended school . It was just that my house didn’t have any . I’m sure that wealthy families would probably have those .

Even if it’s just basic reading and writing, I’m thankful for it right now . I can speak the words but I couldn’t read or write it . Actually, I haven’t even seen my parents reading and writing that much . You can transact orally when shopping . The characters in this world are similar to Cypriot syllabary so I have bad compatibility with it . [TN: or Cyprus, or maybe Greek, I’m not sure キプロス音節文字のような記号に近いせいか性質が悪い。]

Well, there are characters similar to Japanese Kanji so I can use “this character to this reading” as a way of memorizing so there are no problems .

As for the simple calculation, since I finished the compulsory education and I was fairly able to graduate high school and university, I’ll be able to do it even in a different world . It’s just that I still don’t know this world’s currency . When my mother went shopping, she used a lot of copper coins . Occasionally, she would use silver coins . I’m sure that there are gold coins but I still haven’t seen any yet .

I’d be completely fumbling about when it comes to magic since I’ll be learning reading and writing at the same time . I only have my knowledge of magic from games . There were even various differences from games when it came to fire attribute magic . I had no magic and was living a normal life when I died so I should remember magic that would be useful in surviving I guess . Science was originally more developed than magic, let’s try use magic based on that . That is, if I didn’t forget it though .

While thinking about that, I decided to go to sleep .
