Book 1: Healer, knocking on the door of the Adventurer’s Guild

Chapter 1: Healer’s Guild

The weather was great and there was a road so the journey was easy.


“I was mentally prepared for the long walk but… it really is far. It was really scary when I spotted the monster in the distance just now. I really wish they would stop sending people into another world empty handed. The only salvation I have is this rock I picked up that seems easy to throw. Haa~ can I really survive in this world? Ahh~ this is terrifying.”


I continued talking to myself as I walked all alone to keep my feelings in check.

I can’t bring out my courage without the cheat abilities of a light novel’s main character.

Even if the standard goblin monster attacked me, I had a feeling I would lose.


Currently, the only thought in my mind was to survive.

Only that single thought.


While checking my surroundings, I reached approximately 300 meters from the city and finally felt relieved as I spotted human figures. I briskly walked towards the gate-like location.


“What a splendid outer wall. If the exterior is so well-made then the interior should be quite respectable as well.”


While commenting aloud, rocky outer walls unseen in my previous life comes into view as I approach the city gates.


Identification was needed to enter the city, but I prayed to god that I could somehow enter as I waited in line.


“Show me your identification papers.”

Said the gate soldier holding a spear.

He was slightly shorter than me but his arms were at least three times thicker than mine.

I would probably go down with just one punch from that log-sized arm.


I spun my words while holding that impression of the guard.

“I came from a small village and was immediately sent out of my village after I became an adult so I don’t have any identification papers. I came to this city intending to work under the Healer’s Academy.

I told the gate guard while adding in some acting.

“Eh? The Healer’s Academy? Please wait a while.”


Eh? That did it? I intended to take advantage of the knowledge I obtained but did I just unnecessarily dig a grave for myself?

I felt anxious. Should I run? No. It will be checkmate if I ran.


As I was deep in thought, the earlier guard returned together with a woman.


The woman has clear blonde hair that extends beyond her shoulders, clad in a pure white robe exuding a beautiful and dignified atmosphere. I was momentarily fascinated.


“Are you the applicant who wish to join the Healer’s Academy?”


“Yes. I have aptitude for Holy magic and my profession is Healer so I came to the city with the intent to practice.”


“Okay. Then firstly please follow me to obtain your Healer Guild’s identification papers.”

With only that said the woman started walking away.


I thank the gate guard while thinking just who is that woman? as I frantically chase after the woman walking rapidly away to try asking her a question.


“Um, is there no toll for entering the city?”


She replied while smiling.

“Only the Empire requires Healers to pay a toll.”



She continued on that there are other reasons but mainly due to the Healer’s Headquarters situated in this country, just by being a Healer, you would be treated better.

She added that you can be jailed if you lie about having aptitude for Holy magic so it seems like nobody makes false declarations regarding that.


Right after reincarnating in this country, my Extravagant Luck immediately worked in my favor. Did that exhibit the merit of having Extravagant Luck? I grinned to myself as I frantically chased after the woman.


As we walk on a beautiful cobblestone road, I got a feeling that I wanted to walk on similar streets in my previous life. But I couldn’t make the woman guiding me wait so I put away my nostalgia and increased my pace.


The woman finally stopped in front of a huge building.


” This is Saint Schull’s Church Meratoni branch’s Healer’s Guild.”

She entered the building as she was talking and turned around to say.

“Welcome to the Healer’s Guild.”

She welcomed me.


Ah~ that makes me kind of happy.

“Thank you very much.”

I felt slightly embarrassed but I thanked her properly.


“Lumina-sama, how may I help you?”

The voice came from a slightly bewitching nubile beauty at the reception desk.


Wait a minute. Did she just address the woman that guided me as -sama (honorific)? Is she a prominent person? She called her Lumina?


“This child here was selected as a Healer during his village’s coming of age ceremony. I hope to confirm this with the Healer’s Guild and complete his identification papers.”

Lumina-san explained to the receptionist as she moved towards the counter.

“Ahh~ I see. Then once again, welcome. Welcome to the Healer’s Guild. Here are the documents needed for the procedure to register as a Healer. Please fill them in.”


I was handed parchments at the counter she led me to.


On the paper I filled in my name, race and age but feigned ignorance regarding my birthplace.


“For my birthplace is it okay if I just indicate it as ‘village’? I don’t recall if the village has a name?”


“Hahh? Ah, ‘cough’. Well if you don’t know then it should be fine.”

It was just for a moment but the reception lady… what did she just say? She made such a face? It was fleeting so maybe I was mistaken?


The receptionist resumed her smiling face as if nothing had happened. The receptionist I handed my documents over to disappeared into a room behind the counter.


“Eh? You referred to your village as just ‘village’? You know you’re in a city right?”

The woman called Lumina overheard and sighed.


“You really are ignorant huh.”

She said while looking exasperated.


That cold gaze is not a reward to me. It is simply scary.

“I’ll try my best from now on.”

I lowered my head and she sighed again.


Shortly afterward the receptionist returned.

“Please channel your magic into this.”


Said the receptionist as she pass me a card.


…It was good that I obtained Magic Control. Due to that skill I understood how to use magic.


A flow of what appears to be magical power flowed into the card. The card then emitted light as words appeared.


Healer’s Guild Meratoni branch affiliate G rank Healer Luciel


“Okay, please return the card.”

I returned the card. The receptionist once again disappeared into the room behind the counter.

“May I ask what was that for?”


“Ah that was to record your card. With that you can use it at any Healer’s Guild around the world.”

“I see.”

Even though I answered that, was there a meaning for that feature? I worried for the assumption that there would be travelling.


Well, I guess I could ask more on that later.


The receptionist came back and passed the card to me.

“Thank you for waiting. You are confirmed to be a healer. You have both aptitude for Holy Magic and Magic Control.”


“Then I guess that’s all we need for now.”

Lumina-san started but it would be bad if she continued. So I steeled myself against embarassment and asked.


“I’m sorry. I have not used Holy magic before, nor can I even use magic.”

I honestly told them.


“What do you mean?”

Isn’t that look a bit too intimidating Lumina-sama?


“Is there a problem? I have not read any spell books and I am the first healer from my village so please let me know if there is anything strange?”


“Haa~ That’s right, you are ignorant.”


Lumina-san believed me. Acting ignorant earlier helped. But somehow… I felt like crying.


“Erm~ Since I have completed the registration, is there anywhere I can work at as an assistant?”

Lumina-san replied after hearing my question.


“You have three choices. ‘Spartan’, ‘Loan’ and ‘Assistant’.”

Erm Lumina-san? You have been emitting an intimidating aura since just now?


“Sorry but could you please explain the choices in detail?”


“Umu. In the case of ‘Spartan’,  you will chant until your magical power is depleted as you study to memorize healing magic. After your magical power restores from sleep you will repeat the same process again. In the case of ‘Loan’, because there isn’t a specialized Healer’s school, you will enter an ordinary academy and learn magic for three years. However, you will need to return 10 gold pieces to the Healer’s Guild upon completion. Finally for ‘Assistant’, for the duration of a year you will complete chores while memorizing Holy magic during your spare time.”


The first choice I won’t die but I would be under severe mental stress for a short time.

Second choice is kind of similar to a scholarship. From my previous life’s experience I know that would be pretty tough as well.

As for the third choice… chores… I am not sure if I would have any free time at all. But that certainly would be the most reliable choice.


No wait. I should be able to endure ‘Spartan’. That’s right. Didn’t I acquire Proficiency Appraisal for reasons like this? With this skill I should not get mentally cornered to that degree.


I should be able to manage as long as I maintain my fighting spirit. I will advance from a Healer newbie to a Healer apprentice. Yes I will aim for a promotion. Those thoughts gave me impetus.


“Please assign me for the ‘Spartan’ course. I would like to make full use of my time.”

I said while bowing down after consolidating my thoughts.


Haa~. A sigh was heard from the receptionist. She spoke when I looked up.

“Lumina-sama, please leave this to us. Well then, follow me.”


The receptionist left the counter and started walking. I immediately chased after the receptionist, but not before turning around and properly thanking Lumina-san.


“Thank you very much for everything Lumina-sama?”


“It is fine to address me without -sama. Do your best Luciel-kun. I place my expectations in you.”

She saw me off while saying so.


That dignified figure and beautiful attractive smile, needless to say I saved that memory in my brain.


I followed after the receptionist after apologizing for the wait.


“Please practice while reading the spell books in this room. We will bring you your meals in the morning and evening. Then when your magical power has depleted, it will be unbearable so please rest on that bed over there. Continue practicing once you wake up. Please repeat that process.”

The receptionist left after giving me instructions.


“Ah, I did not get the receptionists name nor did I greet her. Ku, that’s the fundamental requirement of a working adult. Get a grip myself.”

I entered the room as I hit myself on the head.


The room looked just like a studio apartment. As for the toilet, it was the lid type chamber pot that appears in period dramas. Instead of toilet paper, there were pieces of some unknown rough material.


Naturally there wasn’t a bath tub. In addition, there were no windows as well. It would likely be tough not knowing the change in time.


Wouldn’t this environment be the reason for the trainees feeling depressed?

While thinking so, I proceeded on to the spell books and spell instructional books.


For me that was the best environment to raise my proficiency levels.

I only realized it was so later on.


It iwas a great place to concentrate without any danger to my life, to have meals prepared for me and to not be disturbed by anyone.



“Yosh I’m fired up. I will remember the magic within ten days. You can do it, Luciel.”


I persuaded myself toward my goal of becoming a healer apprentice.


Thus Luciel’s healing magic training begins.

  9. Sean

    Interesting name choice for Luciel/Lucheal. It can be a mix of his MMO names Lucifer and Micheal as well as a combination of lucky and healer.

  10. aFallenLeaf

    Hmm, he just came to another world and already become hikikomori? Lol
    Thanks for the chapter!

  11. yuutoha

    It can be translated as proficiency indicator/appraisal

  12. The healer being blond with white clothes is quite the big staple. Is it because it looks more angelic ?
    As an ex-parisian : cobblestone roads are nice to look at, but very slippy when on rainy days, and hell when on a bike. Would not recommend
