The main street of Dublin was vacant and dark.
But some light spilled out from restaurants and bars.
I arrived at the Laughing Ogre.
The restaurant was busy with dinner.
And I heard someone call my name.
It was Chase from the table in the right corner of the room.
“Hey, what’s going on?”, he asked me.
“Well, not much. I really need a money. I could not do what I wanted without any money. I really feel like everything costs too much.”, I responded.
“That sounds rough.”, he said, and he called the waitress to the table to ordered 2 more beers.
A few minutes, later the waitress brought 2 beers.
“Don’t worry, TJ, it’s on me. For your bad day!”
The beer was to my liking (taste).
The waitress was still standing by the side of our table and talking with Chase.
It looked like he used this inn quite often.
“Interesting! Where are you from TJMax? What happen to you?”, the waitress asked me very quickly.
“What did you talk about with Chase?”, I asked.
“What happened to you? You were in the cave, right? So what happened? Oh, by the way, I’m Lydia. Nice to meet you.”, she said.
I thought to myself that women like to gossip. It seemed to be especially touring right now.
“Well, actually I don’t remember anything about why I was there. (I don’t remember why I was there at all.)”
“Did you lose your memory? It’s(You have) Amnesia. Cool!”
“It’s not a cool. It’s quite a bother.”
“But If I had amnesia, and a cool looking guy helped me…..”, she kept talking.
Then a loud voice interrupted our conversation.
“Lydia! Stop goofing around! Serve those dishes to table #2. Hurry!”, her boss ordered.
“Ooops! My boss is getting mad.”, she said, and went back to the serving counter.
Chase and Rose and I decided when we would visit barracks tomorrow.
“Okay, see you then.”, I said and went towards the door.
“Hey, how about you spend tonight in this inn?”, Chase said.
“Are you Ghana paying?”
Chase paid for me.
Then a few minutes later, the innkeeper gave me a key for the night.
It was getting late, so I went to my room.
It wasn’t completely clean. But everything that I would need was there.
I took off my belt and put it on a chair and laid down on the bed.
Then I gradually recalled the events of the day.
I wasn’t sure if I was asleep or not, but, suddenly there was a loud knock at my door. And some
muttering.“That’s weird, I can’t get the door open.”
I had a bad feeling about this.
With him being so loud, I had no choice but to go to the door.
When I opened the door, there was a drunk guy laying down on the floor.
“What are you doing here? It’s not your room.” I asked him.
“What? Oh, the door is open!”, he mumbled and he dove into my room faster than you would expect a drunk man to.
“Oh! What the hell is this! Hey, that’s my bed!”
He was already asleep. I grabbed his legs and dragged him out of my room.
But, again, he dove into my room really quickly.
This was becoming an endless loop, I would need to stop it.
He had already begun snoring.
“This guy is a monster.”
I could have cut off his head and thrown it out the window if I had wanted to.
But he didn’t seem to be any real monster.
I went to the front desk and asked for help with this situation.
The innkeeper looked like he was going to call a city guard.
Shortly after, 2 city guards came into the inn.
They asked me a few questions to prove if it was my room.
I told them that I had the key to the door.
The city guards accepted my explanation and went upstairs.
When we came into the room, he was still snoring.
The guards woke his sorry up asked him if this was his room.
“What? Of course, I have a room key.”, he said, and showed us a key. “But the weirdest thing was that I couldn’t open it.
Luckily, the door magically opened by itself!”
Isn’t that amazing?!"
One of the city guards asked him “Is there any way that you can prove this room is yours?”to me.
“I can open this door with my key, and my stuff is on that chair” I responded to him.
“Then everything is clear now. Sorry for bothering your night. Have a good night, sir.” the guard said.
Then the other city guard grabbed the drunk man’s neck and brought him out of my room.
“You are going to spend tonight in jail, dumbass.”, the guard said.
“But I have a key…..”
“It’s too late.”
Through the wall I heard their conversation getting weaker.
But it sounded like he continued his excuses.
I thought, finally I will be able to have a good sleep.
But there still one more problem.
The bed smelled terrible bad. It reminded me of Kobold cave. And I couldn’t tell which one was worse.
Luckily I passed out.
I woke up to the sounds of birds chirping around the window.
The sun was already high.
I guess, I overslept.
I went down to the dining hall, Chase had already finished his breakfast.
I ordered breakfast and tried to catch up.
The served breakfast was quite good.
It was a good start to the day.
We went to the barracks and met with Wulf.
It looked like Chase and he knew each other.
He had asked Chase and Rose to perform the mission.
We received our reward from him and divided it by three.
He informed us three jobs that he needed done.
“If you are having trouble with money, these adventures pay well.”,he said.
We had a small conversation about each offer and decided to go investigate the damaged bridge.
We planned to meet at the hotel, and then I went to the Magic school.
I opened the entrance door and everything was the same as yesterday except Zach’s presence at the front desk.
“Greetings, Oh! You are the man who had the interesting ring.”
“Hey, here is the 5 gold. Please let me know if you finished the detection or the spell casting, or whatever.”
I just dropped by the magic school and then went to the weapon shop.
The shop owner showed me the inventory.
All of the items were too expensive.
But I felt that my equipment was poor.
I didn’t know where this feeling came from.
I wasn’t sure why I felt that way. The armor itself wasn’t actually bad – maybe a few rings were broken.
Perhaps, before I lost my memory, I had been used to better armor.
