The Archer of a Fictitious World Chapter 6
Chapter 6 Loner and the surrounding people
“Saki~ We are gathering in front of the plaza again today, alright?”
“Yep, got it. I will head there straight after reaching home.”
I answered my friend’s invitation.
My name is Saki Fujisawa.
A first year student at Hirasaka High School.
We were talking about the game ‘Anadin’ which was released about a month ago. Today, the first event since the release will begin.
I am still mid-level so I probably can’t do much but… I will do my best.
When my eyes went to the corner of the classroom accidentally, I couldn’t spot that person’s figure there.
The person who took the 1st place in the previous yearly exam-a very smart person.
It isn’t rare for her to take days off.
It seems she has a fragile body so she has been taking days off often.
Maybe because everyone has a hard time starting conversations with her, Ohinata is always by herself. Of course, another reason for that would be that she never comes talking by herself either.
The other day, I mustered up my courage and spoke to her but,
“Ohinata! Congrats on getting number 1!”
“Eh, ah, uu, umm, thank………~~~u…”
She ran away after saying that.
I wonder if I hurt her feelings somehow……
I am thinking of talking to her again next time when I get the opportunity.
My name is Ryouta Iwashimizu.
High school first year.
When I say that, people think I am lying.
Well, it is understandable since no matter how you look at my face, it will look like that of a yakuza’s.
But recently I have started playing a VRMMO game.
That way, I thought things wouldn’t be so bad even if my appearance was bad.
However, it was wise setting my race as random.
What I got was High Dwarf, a rare race.
It’s nice that it’s rare and what not but it’s a race more suited for cooking.
Being unable to fight, I had no choice but to open up a restaurant.
And what was even worse was choosing tentacle fries to be the first item.
Add that, along with my looks which was even more grim now, nobody came close.
I guess I have no choice since it came to this. I will have to be patient with it for a month then make a new character.
It was when I was thinking that.
“Umm, ahh, umm, uhh, hi-hi-hi-hi……”
I heard such a voice. When I raised my head to look, a very pretty green-haired demi-human girl was there.
I was captivated for a while there but soon came to my senses.
I couldn’t hear properly but she spoke to me. She must be a customer.
“Miss, would you like one tentacle fry?”
“Ah, um, yes!”
And so, I handed over one tentacle fry.
I could guarantee that the taste was good but I was nervous since this was the first time someone other than me had it.
When I asked her if it was good or not after she had finished eating,
“Ah! Umm, uhh, ah, i-i-i-i-it’s… good……”
I am glad. I ended up letting out a sigh of relief. My choice was not wrong.
And then another unbelievable thing happened.
“Umm, uhh, I will…… come… again……”
And the minute she finished saying that, she dashed away at an incredible speed.
I couldn’t react.
The day after that and the day after that as well, she really came.
Her voice was still low and she was stuttering but I could hear it all now.
She probably has social anxiety.
Moreover, a rumor-‘a pretty demi-human goes there’ spread and my shop started flourishing.
I can’t thank her enough. I should ask her name next time.
But, I didn’t see her this whole week.
Did she quit?
I am very worried.
