Chapter 5:

Re:birth

I Didn't Even Want to Live, But God Forced Me to Reincarnate!


Suddenly, the pitch black darkness that envelops me turns into a painfully blinding light.Bookmark here

The depths of my eyes feel like they are burning.Bookmark here

Eh...? Bookmark here

Is this what it feels like... to be born?Bookmark here

IF YES, THEN HELL, HOW DO BABIES WITHSTAND THIS PAIN?!Bookmark here

Have I been underestimating babies all these time?!Bookmark here

I am not exaggerating. It is like my whole body aches. Like it is being crushed or what. I feel like I have no energy at all. Is this normal?Bookmark here

My body feels very wet and sticky—oh wait, is this blood? Well... it is normal for me to be enveloped in blood, considering I was just born... Nevermind it, I do not mind the sensation of stickiness—but moreover, this pain... is beyond... my...!!Bookmark here

[WAAAAAAA--!!]Bookmark here

Hm? Was that my voice? It sounds different...Bookmark here

Eh? Since I am basically another person now? And a baby, on top of that? ...I know, I know...Bookmark here

...I am ashamed to admit, but I let out a very loud cry.Bookmark here

*sigh*Bookmark here

Even though I am already thirteen years old, for me to cry out loud like this... it is embarrassing, but the surge of pain I feel has urged me to.Bookmark here

It hurts...Bookmark here

It hurts...Bookmark here

Apparently, I passed out.Bookmark here

Some time must have passed ever since my birth.Bookmark here

When I came to, I try so hard to open my eyes and get adapted to my surroundings. But I cannot see my surroundings very clearly...............Bookmark here

AM I BLIND?!Bookmark here

DO MY EYES HAVE DEFECT IN THEM?!Bookmark here

W-wait... Let’s be calm... let’s be rational... Let’s think...Bookmark here

Yeah, that’s right. I was just born!! So, it must be normal for my organs to not be fully adapted to life. Surely, my eyesight will get better, right?Bookmark here

Ooh, my sight is not as bad as when I first opened my eyes!Bookmark here

Yes, that must be it!Bookmark here

Thank goodness, I am not blind!!Bookmark here

Hooray~!Bookmark here

And I thought it was a very good way to start my new life : bad eyes.Bookmark here

God hasn’t really forsaken me, after all, eh?Bookmark here

Okay, let’s go around with body check!Bookmark here

[Aa... uuu...]Bookmark here

Voice? Check!Bookmark here

Next, I try wriggling around my upper and lower limbs.Bookmark here

Ohh, great! I have both hands and legs!!Bookmark here

What about my nose?Bookmark here

*sniffs sniffs*Bookmark here

...the smell of a typical hospital.Bookmark here

EARS! WHAT ABOUT EARS?!Bookmark here

--Oh dear stupid me... I could hear my voice before, so my hearing was fine.Bookmark here

In conclusion, I was born perfectly healthy. Good. That is a good start...Bookmark here

Though, I believe some kind of misfortunes are bound to happen for all the fortunes I have.Bookmark here

So, let’s guess it... my family? My magical power? My talent? OR ALL OF THEM?!Bookmark here

I cannot wait to know which part do I get my share of misfortunes in...Bookmark here

A few days have passed ever since...Bookmark here

And I spent those days in some kind of incubators, receiving some painful shots and treatment.Bookmark here

What? Am I really that weak? Do I have some kind of incurable disease? Am I dying?! GOD, IF I WERE TO REBORN JUST TO DIE AGAIN, THIS IS NOT FUNNY AT ALL!!Bookmark here

Oh... OR AM I AN EXPERIMENTAL RABBIT?! Did they inject me with various genes? Will they make me a mutant? And then suddenly I have to fight villains to save the world? Or will they turn me into any kind of beast, who’s going to do some dirty, underground work?Bookmark here

...speaking of it, what species am I?Bookmark here

Am I born as human again?Bookmark here

Let’s have a briefing on the species...Bookmark here


Bookmark here

First~✷ Humans, of course! I was a human back then... basically...
Humans do not really have anything special.
It is just that they have potentials on magical power and also physical power, such as swordsplay like what my previous family was so proud of.Bookmark here

Second race : beastmen~✷!
They are basically the hybrid of a human and any beast. It can be a wolf, dog, fox, cat, or even bird... the mix of a human and any type of beast shall be categorized as beastmen.
They possess ridiculously strong power and enhanced senses. Only a few of them have good affinity in magic.
Some even possess the power to shape-shift to their beast form, and those who can shape-shift are called [Werebeast].
Beastmen often suffered from slavery and discrimination, though, for being half-beast---or in harsh words, half-animals. They have the characteristics of the beasts : like the shape of their ears, and usually they have tails, or... wings for birds-men!Bookmark here

Third race : dragons~✷!
...do they even exist, though? Anyhow, they possess strong power, both physical and magical power. They have long life span and their aging process is different from us... or so I heard.
It is rare to see dragons. It is said that after a certain age, they can transform into a human-like form, and the older they get, the more enhanced their transformation can be. They are feared, however, due to their destructive power.
But, they are... very rare, I even doubt one still exists.Bookmark here

Fourth race ✷ : Elves!
They are characterized by pointy ears and unparalleled beauty and youth… Their bodies are usually slender… One look at them, you’ll exclaim, “How pretty!” They possess strong magic talent and huge amount of mana. Their signature magic element is light. None of them should be able to do dark magic.Bookmark here

Bookmark here

Fifth race ✷ : Oni (demons)!
They are characterized by horns on their heads. They have characteristics like elves.
But, their signature magic is dark magic. Vice versa, they should not be able to do light magic. Oni are feared... due to the stereotyping of their dark magic and their demeanor. They are proud beings.Bookmark here

Sixth race ✷: Dwarves! Just like the fairy tales told us, they are small (adorable, little creatures~✷!). Both the males and females of the dwarves in this world look like children... yet inside, they are adults. Their ears are also pointy. When you look at dwarves, you’ll exclaim, “How cute!”Bookmark here

Unlike some stories which say that female dwarves look like small girls (loli) while the male dwarves look like grandpas (jii-chan), fortunately, in my world, they are not like that at all… It would be disturbingly creepy to be true...
They are eternal loli and shota. They are incredible at physical strength and have longer life span. Unfortunately, they, too, are prone to slavery and discrimination. Since their small statures are usually followed by childish behaviors... one can say that it is quite easy to trap them.Bookmark here

Seventh race : Mixbreeds! The combination of ✷any✷ of the races above is usually categorized as the seventh race. But it is rare to see one. Marriage across species is not that usual.Bookmark here

Fufu, it was a nicely done review! It seems my memory hasn’t failed me, I still remember the knowledge of my previous life. Therefore, I should have no worry about common sense in my world.Bookmark here

...my world...Bookmark here

Speaking of which...Bookmark here

...Is this even the same world as my previous life?Bookmark here

What year is it?Bookmark here

Dear God, please come back and brief me with my condition of birth, this time...Bookmark here

Seems like it is still long until all my questions are answered.Bookmark here

But first thing first, was I sold by my parents to some kind of shady organizations?Bookmark here

Why haven’t I seen my mother or my father?Bookmark here

Just as I am thinking about that, the usual nurse comes to me.Bookmark here

Time for treatment... or experiment?Bookmark here

I readied myself, but—Bookmark here

She gently carries me in her arms and smiles in relief.Bookmark here

“Thank goodness, finally, you can go to your mother’s arms! Let’s go and see your mother!” she said cheerfully.Bookmark here

...hooray?Bookmark here

Apparently, I am not an abandoned orphan who is all alone in this new world—wherever it is.Bookmark here
