Chapter 1 -Millfarazé, the Sword of God
The next thing I knew, I was in an unfamiliar patch of woods.
“Huh? Where did the goddess go?”
I looked around.
The dense forest of trees seemed to be stretching forever, and when I looked up at the blue sky, not a cloud was in sight.
Does this mean that I’ve been transported from the chasm up to here? If that was the case, was I able to reincarnate safely?
Anyway, I started walking.
I didn’t even know where I was going to go, but I just kept moving forward.
After a while, I came to a spring.
“Eh, this is……me?”
I looked down at the spring and saw my image reflected in the water.
I have glossy black hair and blue eyes.
Just who is this handsome guy!?
If I could describe it in two words (because one is just not enough), it would be “breathtakingly beautiful,” but really, but the sight of myself really took my breath away. That’s how handsome I am now.
The tips of my ears were sharp like knives as well, making me look like a legitimate elf.
The only remnants of my past life were my black hair, and as for the rest, it looked nothing like the man I used to be. To be honest, if I were another girl, I would definitely fall in love with this figure at first sight.
“I love it! I really do!”
From now on, I’m going to live my life with this?
A handsome boy’s life – aah, I’m getting excited just thinking about it.
But I’m slim and slender, and I feel not as strong as I used to be. It seems that my strength has diminished quite a bit, as a few dozen meters I walked to get here were enough to make me tired.
I’m not sure if it’s because I became an elf.
–As I was thinking about this, a blinding light suddenly flooded my view.
“Transfer completed. Coordinates confirmed. Target acquired.”
For some reason, I heard a woman’s voice with a seemingly electronic echo through the light.
“What is it?”
The light becomes even brighter and then flares up in front of my startled face.
What appeared was a shining sword.
It has a golden blade about seven or eighty centimeters long and a hilt resembling spread-out wings.
But what was noticeable was that the whole thing has geometrically straight lines all over the body, like those of a PCB circuit, a strangely modernized design that was out of place in the fantasy world.
In the center of the pattern, there was something like an LCD screen, and it read ‘Standing by.’ This chapter translation is made possible by rocheneorecormon of stabbing with a syringe translations.
“How do you do, Master Lian. I am a God-tier magical armament meta-artifact sent by Goddess Elciata. My name is Mllifarazé”.
That sword, floating at about my eye level, told me.
The sword just spoke!
“Unlike those counterfeit magic swords, this one before you has real and legitimate special powers – almost on the equivalent of swords of legends that are being spoken in this world! In short, I’m a super-duper extraordinary rare and cool sword!”
The voice itself is electronic, but there is an evident emotion in it. If it had a face, I’m sure that the sword would be looking smug right now.
This sword would have been more awesome if not for its over-descriptive sets of adjectives of itself, though.
“Henceforth, pleased to be your acquaintance. Master Lian.”
“Lian…? Oh, you mean me.”
Having just reincarnated, I’m still not used to my new name.
”’So, what’s this about being sent by Elciata?”
I asked the sword to get my mind back on track.
“She said it would be difficult for you, who was thrown out all alone into another world where you don’t know what’s right or what’s left. She liked you so much that she asked me, a divine sword, to help you in your new life.”
Stated the short sword in mechanical monotone.
“Anyway, just think of me as a guide to this world, a navigator, and a self-defense device.”
She likes me to that extent, huh…….
Knowing that a beautiful woman has told me that, albeit indirectly, I still couldn’t help but be embarrassed──of course, I got a bit aroused as well.
And in a different world where you don’t know what’s left or right, always welcome to have a reliable navigator.
I thanked the goddess in my heart.
It’s nice to meet you too. Uhm, Mill-……what is it again?”.
“……That’s so long and hard to pronounce.”
I stared at the sword floating in front of me.
“How about Milfa, if that’s okay with you?”
“If master wishes to.”
“So, Mlifa. Let me ask you right away……this is a different world, isn’t it?”
I just want to make sure.
“Yes. The closest term for it, if I refer to Master Lian’s mental image, this world would be the so-called ‘medieval fantasy-style otherworld of swords and magic.”
“Well, next question. I’m now an elf, right? Do I have any family or anything?”
“No, Master Lian was born in heavenly solitude. Also, you do not belong to any particular settlement. You have suddenly appeared in this world in your current form and ability by the power of Goddess Elciata”.
Milfa explains. For some reason though, felt like a mushroom, popping out of the forest out of nowhere.
“I see. What about this forest then? Is this where the elves live?”
“This is a forest in the human territory. Normally, elves live in a settlement protected by a magical ward – the Elven Forest – and have little contact with the outside world. It’s only on the rare occasion that an elf with interest in the human world leaves their forests.” Please support the translator and get the latest updates of this novel by reading only at stabbing with a syringe dot home dot blog.
In other words, it’s not the usual pattern of reincarnation in which I was born again as a baby in the home of the elves, but rather, I just popped up in this world as the person I am now. Yep, definitely a mushroom.
“Okay, next question. Tell me about my abilities. Though I wrote down the five traits on Elciata’s selection sheet, I’m still──.”
Suddenly, a ferocious sound echoed, interrupting my question.
It was a roar loud enough to make the entire forest tremble and reflexively shrug my shoulders.
“I’m detecting one living signature about two hundred meters away from our location. Based on the inherent waveform of the magic power, it’s a dragon type demon, and based on the magic energy value, it’s estimated to be a threat of an A-class equivalent.”
Milfa, the God’s sword, spoke.
The display of the LCD on the sword has changed to ‘Search mode.’
“It’s a monster that lives in the other world apart from here. The major species include dragons and giants. Apparently, the demon seems to be engaging in battle with a party of adventurers.”
And a divine sword as my companion.
This world…… is like an RPG, isn’t it?
While holding such impression, I could feel my heart burning in my chest.
A certain excitement that I couldn’t get in my previous life.
Maybe this is what I was looking for all along.
“Okay, Milfa. Lead me there.”
“Master has just been reincarnated and isn’t used to magical sword techniques yet, so I suggest refraining from any further approach, especially as this will be your first battle, it was dangerous to suddenly face an A-class demon.”
I said matter-of-factly.
Strangely, I should be worrying as heck right now if this were the normal me, but there is not one bit of it being felt in my body.
Instead, I feel an oozing amount of confidence from the bottom of my heart.
It is as if I was instinctively convinced that I was the most powerful force in the world by far.
“I’ll run away if I feel it’s really bad. In the meantime, just give me a tour to the scene.”
“If it’s what Master Lian wishes.”
Milfa responds reverently.
I wrote the trait of mastery of the strongest Magic Sword Arts on the selection sheet.
If the goddess is right, it’s a sure bet that I can kill an ordinary monster in the blink of an eye.
“Then, let’s go… my sword.”
I said and grabbed the hilt of Milfa.
For the first time in my life, I held a sword, and it was heavier than I expected.
I can feel the weight of the cold steel in both hands. However, that weight also tells me that this is no longer a dream but another reality.
I have finally reincarnated in another world.
Now, let’s take on the monster and beat them up.
