FASB Chapter 2

When Times are Tough, We Should Help Each Other

The next morning, after I was kicked out of the Hero Party.

I left the inn and went out into the city after thanking the landlady, who allowed me to stay in the inn even though I arrived in the middle of the night.

Since I can’t go home as I don’t have any money with me, I have no choice but to look for a job.

Fortunately, there’s an adventurer’s guild in this town.

For me, as a former adventurer, this will really help me to find a job for the time being.

Speaking of, adventurers are jacks-of-all-trades who support themselves by subjugating monsters, guarding caravans, or gathering a variety of precious commodities and plants.

“Hmmm, this looks like it.”

The adventurer’s guild here is just like any other guild branch, a building with a tavern inside it.

The reason why a lot of guilds have a tavern inside them is that it seems there are a lot of adventurers who want to enjoy drinking immediately after work.

Especially the dwarven adventurers, as they like to drink so much. That’s why they use guilds that have a tavern inside them.

On the other hand, elven adventurers hate the smell of booze. That’s why they go to the guilds that don’t have taverns inside.

Well, that’s what I’ve heard from an old friend.

“Aughhh!”

Just as I was about to enter the guild, I noticed an elderly woman coming down the street who had fallen and was in pain.

“Old lady, are you alright?”

“Ah, I’m sorry, it’s just that at this age my hips are already weak.”

When I called out to her, the old lady laughed, and then she tried to stand up.

It looks like she’s suffering from a lot of pain.

“I’ll help you. As expected, I can’t just leave you alone in this situation.”

“Thank you.”

When I supported her body, the old woman’s complexion improved.

It also looks like her posture has improved.

“Oh, for some reason, I feel like my body has become much lighter.”

“Is that so? Then that’s really good to hear. ”

By helping the old lady, it looks like my Fully Automatic Support Buff1After this chapter, the Fully Automatic Support Buff will be shortened as Full Auto Supp Buff skill must have been activated.

The effect of my skill temporarily improved the old woman’s physical ability. That’s why the muscles that supported her body that were previously weak have now improved.

Just as the name of my skill suggests, I can’t control my Fully Automatic Support Buff.

However, it will almost certainly activate for the “person that I really want to help.”

This skill is the reason why my friend asked me to join the party of the hero.

My role was to secretly support the hero and his party with this skill. And for various reasons, I kept this secret from Ares and the other party members.

My Fully Automatic Support Buff will automatically buff everyone in my party if I’m a member.

But since I’ve left the hero party, my support buff for them should have stopped by now.

“Ah, my daughter’s house is just around the corner. Thank you very much for assisting me. You’re such a kind man. ”

Just as I was thinking that it seems that we have arrived at our destination.

“You’re welcome. Also, don’t mind it very much as it’s normal to help each other when times are tough. ”

That’s why I always live my life following these two sayings: “When you’re good to others, you’re best to yourself”2This quote is different from the original lines but close enough because one of them is a Japanese proverb. The first one is  情けは人のためならず which roughly translate to kindness is not for others meaning that if you show kindness to others, you will be rewarded in return. and “If you live all your life being greedy, people will go away from you”.

And above all, it feels really good to help others.

The Fully Automatic Support Buff isn’t an omnipotent skill because I can’t use it on myself, but it’s a really great skill because I can use it  to help a lot of people.

That’s why I really like this skill so much.

“Ah, speaking of which, I forgot to ask, but what’s your name, young man?”

“I’m Slad, Slad Maesti.”

When I said my name, the old woman smiled at me cheerfully.

“I see. Well then, Slad, if you have some free time, would you like to have a tea with me?”

“Thanks for the offer, but I must politely decline.”

“I’ll also prepare some sweetened white peaches that I personally made.”

“Did you say sweets?”

What should I do?

I love eating sweets, but since I used all the extra money I have on purchasing potions to be used for supporting the hero party, I couldn’t afford to buy them.

That’s why I haven’t eaten sweets in a long time.

“I’ve made so much that I’m in trouble. That’s why it would be really helpful if you could eat it with me.”

“Well, if you say it that way.”

In the end, I decided to take advantage of the old woman’s kindness.

As I thought, good things would happen when you do good deeds.
