My name is Ars Funnel .
I am a son of a humble farmer . However the demon army is on rampage . It was not my problem since I’m just a rural farmers .
However in the morning, on my forehead, an insignia of a dragon appear .
When I show it to Dad and Mom, they interrogated me and took me to the mayor’s house .
“This is . . The brave emblem . . The hero sign!! ”
The mayor speak so exaggerated, some spit was sprinkled and he held my head until it is going to explode .
What? Hero? I’m just a child of poor farmer . Mom and Dad isn’t special . How can I be the hero?
” It was a sign of blessings from Seven Guardian God . This is the insignia of Guardian Dragon God . How can a playboy, lazy, a good for nothing young lad be chosen? ”
It was an overstatement . I am working hard . Watching the cloud, plow the field, altough my friend considered me as” useless human being” but I retaliate with a pitch fork .
Suddenly a childhood friend of mine, Pigna come and closed her mouth with a trembling hands .
“It’s a lie . . Ars is the hero? It’s an absolute lie . . ”
She was even crying because of the shock . Am I really not qualified to be a hero?
When I look back, Knights in shiny armor and several guards came inside . ” Is it the king guards? Welcome to our village . I’m the mayor . ”
The mayor approach the knight and shook his hand . He even rubbed his hand afterwards like a suspicious uncle trying to haggle . Like a poisonous snake trying to kill you .
” The youth there is really the hero? ”
” Yes, there is no mistake . ”
” Alright, you need to come with us . ”
” Of course . To finally see the good for nothing lad leaving the village . Just take him as soon as possible . ”
The mayor give an unusual good smile .
” So, Ars the hero . Please come with us . ” ” Eh . Eh . Wait… ”
I was dragged in both sides by two guards and thrown into a luxurious carriage .
Dad and Mom showed a refreshing smile . The onlookers didn’t lose in term of satisfaction . Why did I feel like a slave being sold l . The village grow smaller as I move farther . Only Pigna is crying and chasing after the carriage .
Is it an abduction? I have nothing to do except to sleep .
When I wake up, I could see the royal capital . The carriage then drove to the royal palace .
“Ars the hero . Now you will have an audience with His Majesty the King . ”
Isn’t the knight saying a ridiculous thing?
I’m a child of a poor farmers . Meeting with the King? The most important person in the country?
” We will check if you are really the chosen one . ”
This is absurd . What if I am a fake? Will I get executed?
” Did I scare you? Sorry . . There is a medal that in the king possession that could check your eligibility . At the very least you will not be killed if you are the fake . ”
I don’t think that it was a consolation .
” Maybe only a forced slavery for 10 years doing hard labor . ” Hey . It didn’t give me a peace of mind at all .
I was forced to change my clothes . Of course it was normal when meeting the king . The price of clothes I’m wearing is above my lifetime net worth . It was so scary until I couldn’t move .
Finally I arrived at the throne room . I was kneeling down and the gaze of nobles and knights fall down on me . The chubby bearded king is sitting on the throne .
I was like a real hero . However someone is observing me from head to toe . “This person is the hero . ”
An old man is declaring that and cheers come from everyone in the throne room .
” Then I expect great things from you . ” ” Hero . Please defeat the demon . ” That words stunned me .
Then my days as a hero begin . I’ve will be receiving sword and magic training for a month from now .
To become strong . Then I was ordered to hone my skill to defeat demons .
Training was though . The first day is sword training . After that, magic training . The old man that declared my eligibility is the magician and a former hero . Smoke raising from my head hearing magic theory . I really want to get back to the village on the first day .
However apparently I have the talent of a hero . It becomes fun . I can use the sword better everyday . The use of magic is increasing the pleasure . The food I eat is also nutritious and delicious .
“The hero Ars . The fate of all citizens of the kingdom and humanity is rest in your hand . ”
I’m who is thinking to live in a small plot of land and harvesting vegetables, now carried humanity fate .
Speaking of which, it’s harvest time soon . Is Dad and Mom plot is alright? I also recall the face of crying Pigna . Somehow my eyes become moist .
