Episode 13 Master of Archery [Side Story]

Translated By: Niladri

[Otto’s POV]

“So, Otto, is there anything you are particularly good at?”

“Something I am good at is it… Well, I'm skilled in archery!!”

“I see, that's just perfect.”

After saying that, Erd-sama instructed me to go to the city and head to the adventurer's guild.

“Adventurer... is that going to be my job...?”

“That's right, go ahead and take on some quests that interest you.”


I thought that since I was labelled as a “slâve”, I would have to do more difficult work and suffer a harsher treatment.

However, after Erd-sama healed my arm, he instructed me to become an adventurer.

Adventurers... actually, I secretly admired them.

Back when I was still in the village, the only things I hunted were animals and small fries like slimes that lurked around the outskirts. But truth be told, I had always wanted to fight against stronger monsters.

I wanted to test the limit of my archery skills.

“80% of the quest reward should be handed over, and the remaining 20% can be used at your discretion.”

“Eh...!? Is that okay?”

“That's how we do it here.”

“Thank you very much!”

Moreover, the treatment was pretty good.

Even though I was a slâve, the treatment I was receiving here was exceptional. It's not something you would normally see in other places.

“There is another slâve named Domingo. I'm considering teaming you up with him for quests. Would that be acceptable to you?”

“Ff course”

“He's a close-range warrior, so can you support him with your bow?”


After that, I met up with Domingo and decided to go to town together.

“Domingo-san, nice to meet you. Please take care of me.”

“Oh, nice to meet you. Anyway, seems like you too are fortunate.”


“Being picked up by Erd-sama.”

“Ah. That’s right. Really, he’s an amazing master.”

While admiring Domingo and Erd-sama, I headed for the city.

After that, I went to town and learnt lot of things from Domingo.

Things like how to register as an adventurer, how to accept quests, etc.

Since I was born, I had hardly left that village, so a city like this was new to me.

I never thought that becoming a slâve would be such a turning point in my life.

“Well then, onwards with the quest!”


Together with Domingo, we went on a quest.

To be honest, the quest was incredibly enjoyable.

I enjoyed being able to shoot from my bow however I pleased, and fighting monsters was a lot of fun as well.

The archery skills that had been rusting until now was fully demonstrated at this moment.

“Otto. You're doing pretty well, aren't you? You really are a master of archery.”

“Thank you very much!”

Domingo also praised me.

After the quest was over, Domingo took me out for a drink.

“Is it okay? We should return to the mansion as soon as possible...Drinking and enjoying like this…”

“No, Erd-sama is a very generous person. Our job is only limited to quests, so we are free to do as we please after that. As long as we pay our fees, Erd-sama allows us to do whatever we want. Isn't he the best master?”

“Yes...! Right, agreed...!”

The meal we had after working up a sweat on the quest was incredibly delicious.

After becoming a slâve, something like this feels so strange.

Rather, I felt more alive and excited than I did before becoming a slâve.

Erd-sama's generous treatment, it didn't just end there.

It's been a few weeks since I started working as an adventurer.

Suddenly, I received summons from Erd-sama.

I thought I was finally going to face the treatment of a slâve, but­­—

“Otto, you're always working hard, aren't you? And I heard from Domingo that your archery skills are amazing to boot.”

“Ye-Yes... it’s all thanks to you...”

“This is a small present, but I hope you will make use of it.”


Saying that, Erd-sama handed me a new bow.

“Th-This is……?”

“It's a new bow. It will perform considerably better than the current one.”

“Are you sure...!? Isn't it expensive...?”

“It's an upfront investment. With this, you can take on even higher level quests, right?”

“Oh, thank you very much……!”

I gladly accepted it.

Honestly, the weight distribution and balance of that bow were amazing.

With this bow, I could hunt down monsters more and more quickly.

Thanks to that, I was able to accept higher difficulty quests and my income had doubled.

I wonder if I was able to live up to Eld-sama's expectations, even if just a little.

I resolved to continue working hard in order to maintain this wonderful life in the future.
