Chapter 4: This And That About Magic And Worldly Affairs

Entering the town of Rautel was a chore, not just because Fel was around, but there was a huge line outside the gates to get in already. And then there was a scream when we lined up, too. It was a lot of effort to explain to everyone, “He’s my familiar, he’s fine!” As we got closer to the gates, we found, as expected, soldiers in full plate armor stopping us with pointed spears.

“STOP!!”

“Fel, stop for him.” When Fel stopped, a soldier drew closer with his spear at the ready.

“Familiar?”

“Yes. He’s my familiar. Please confirm my Adventurer’s guild card.” I handed my guild card over to the soldier.

“Certainly, it says you have a familiar. Is that a great wolf?”

“Yes.”

“It’s amazing that you were able to tame an A-rank monster.”

“Thanks. I think I just got lucky.”

“I think it’ll be fine since he’s your familiar and tame enough you can ride him, but be aware that if something happens, you’ll be the one punished as his master. If there is damage to the city, depending on the extent, you could be sentenced to death or be forced into slavery. Be plenty careful of how your familiar acts.”

“I understand.” I sighed in relief as he let me through. They really drove the point home, but they also let me in relatively easily. But still, death or slavery... What the heck? That’s super scary!

Or rather, there really were slaves here. There’s no concept of human rights here in this other world. Other worlds are scary!

First, I had to secure a place to sleep. Ah, it would have been faster if I asked the soldier at the gates.

When I went back and asked him for an inn where I could stay with my familiar, he recommended the “Elmira Inn.” To get there, I had to go straight down the road from the gates and turn the 3rd corner. Following his directions, I headed over.

There really were a lot of people around, as expected of the biggest city after the capital. There weren’t many of them, but I did see, here and there, beastmen with animal ears and tails. Almost all of them had collars on, so they might have been slaves.

As Fel and I passed by, they were startled for an instant, but didn’t raise a fuss. I did hear a whisper of, “Oh, a familiar...” So, maybe there were quite a few adventurers around a town this size with familiars in tow like me.

Reaching the Elmira Inn, I found that the price for a night’s stay with accommodations for a familiar was 8 silver. Leaving Fel in the shed for animals, I left in search of a bookstore that I heard about at the inn.

◇ ◇ ◇ ◇ ◇

Entering the bookstore, I found the inside buried in old-fashioned books. I wandered around looking for anything resembling a map, but found nothing.

In seeming consolation for my efforts, I found an interesting-looking book instead. It was titled, ‘Beginner-level Magic for Dummies.’ I think I might want this.
