Schenna remembered all that happened, the wine bottle going empty, the conversation they had while they downed the bottle and then, she fell asleep.

She woke up to find herself in a bunk bed, covered with a blanket with quite a headache. On the bright side, however, she wasn’t feeling nauseous. While taking a look around in search of Kishana, she noticed that the person in question was nowhere to be seen.

Schenna got up from the bed to find a cup filled with water, along with a letter left right next to it.

“Good morning. I had a lot of fun yesterday drinking and talking to you once again. I need to finish up work so Schenna, just rest well until I come back”

It would seem like Kishana had left for work. Schenna felt slightly better as she drank the cup of water that Kishana had left for her, and then noticed something quite serious about her body.

She had been stripped off of her Knight armor, which was placed on top of the bed and changed into chainmail armor. Right next to her pillow, Kishana had left folded underwear with quite a good airflow.

Since their lives in the previous world, Kishana had always been good at taking care of people so she was naturally good at making friends. All of that just to die and be reborn in a different world. This time Schenna wanted to make sure she lived a good life, so she was willing to help her with whatever she could.

She enjoyed the view from the window as the sunshine shone brightly through along with a gentle breeze, without a single cloud in the sky.

The northern part of the kingdom of Hashel and Priden were blessed with an excellent climate, making it very rare for the crops to ever die out.

There were reports of damage caused by the attack of unique monsters from another world, which was dealt with fast after the feudal lord from the province reinforced the area and the knight corps were dispatched from the main country.

Schenna had also been dispatched to these provinces before. This was often a chance for her comrades to step away from the knight career but to Schenna, it was just a good opportunity to get stronger. Which, in the end, only brought her trouble since she gave away a very good impression to the leader of the knight corps, pretty much the reason why her life started going downhill… but then again, that’s how she got to meet Kishana so it might have not been that bad.

At the same time she took a deep breath of fresh air, someone seemed to be knocking on the door.

She thought it could be an acquaintance of Kishana coming over to visit so she went ahead to welcome the person.

Standing in front of the door was a muscular man.

“Excuse me. Oh? Is Kishana-san not around?”

“She is currently not home, however, if you wish so I could pass on a message”

“I’m the landlord of this house and she still has to pay for half a year of rent. It’s time we settle this out since it’s been dragging for too long. Also, I’m renting out this place for one person only so you’re not living here right?”

While in shock, Schenna denied living there but the man kept staring in doubt.
The unexpected debt of half a year of rent caught her by surprise and worried about her situation.

“Please wait a little bit. I’ll cover her debt.”

Schenna brought the knight armor that was on her bed and handed it over to the landlord.

“This knight armor is used officially in the northern part of Hashel, a unique kind of armor enchanted with magic. Selling this will get you a good few hundred gold coins”

“No, that’s not how it works here! I want the money in hand and that’s it, if there’s none then I’ll have both of you out of here!”

“Well then, at least give me a while to sell the armor and hand you the money.”

“You’re just saying that and planning to run away right!? In the contract, it’s well explicit that this room is for one person only, she already broke it so I’ll simply report this to the authorities!”

I can’t pay with my armor, and the money I brought for the trip is not anywhere near enough to pay for it.

Schenna kept trying to convince him but he wasn’t listening at all and began heading towards the guard’s station.

“If you’re okay with it, I would like to offer you a few hundred gold coins for that piece of armor.”

Said the Elf, who happened to overhear the conversation, as she broke her way into the dispute. She was the Elf with an ornament stall right next to where Kishana had her fortune-telling stall.

  1. What a douchebag, couldn’t she just explain to the guy that she was drunk and didn’t even mean to stay there or something?

    1. Yeah, she definitely could have explained her way out of it if she hadn’t hit the panic button and went straight to, “I’ll cover the bill.”

      There are so many ways the outcome could’ve turned out much better if she stayed calm and explained the situation.

  2. Thx for the chapter! Seems like a interesting novel so naturally If I like it I follow it! Btw is there a release schedule for this novel yet? I know you guys are trying for 2 chapters a week but have you decided on the day of the week yet? Thx a lot for picking up this novel TL San!👍

  3. what a numpty
    There’s absolutely no way the rent is worth anywhere near the value of that armor.
    And I find it hard to believe that she wouldn’t have brought/had/made any money at all

  4. That is just the stupidest thing to do, sell your top of the line armor that’s magic enchanted to pay ur friends rent and then not even a day later I bet wishing you’d kept said armor.genius just genius.
