In case you didn’t know, the author added more details to every chapter and changed a few thing here and there, so I’ll have to re-translate them from chapter 3.
The link for the edited version for chapter 1 and 2 is dead, so I copied it using wayback machine and TLC it.
Anyway, enjoy the chapter…
If you don’t want to die, you have to get stronger.
If you want to stay alive, you have to stay strong.
It’s necessary if you want to keep existing in this world.
Those are the only things you have to do to survive in this world.
「Why…?」, I muttered.
I didn’t know what that arrogant voice want.
But the scene in front of me took away my willpower to ask…
「You have been summoned by mistake. Please wait while we call the real Goddess.」
After that, I was led to the corner of the wide stone room. It seemed I had experienced what people call “summoned to another world”.
Ah, I haven’t introduced myself.
I am a 22-years-old pet shop worker, Akizuki Rio. My blood type is A and I’m a Virgo. My face is… okay. There’s nothing bad or good about it.
For some reason, a magic formation-like thing suddenly appeared at my feet and sucked me in. When I woke up… well… here I am.
Before I could overcome my surprise, a white-robed man came over and inspected my body, then he sighed like he was very disappointed.
He went back and whispered with the other white robed men, then approached me again.
He told me those words from before.
What do you mean by mistake!?
How is that even possible!?
No, even before that, how can you summon random people as many times as you want!?
But I didn’t say anything.
More like, I can’t say anything.
At least not in this kind of situation.
I lost to the pressure of their silent chanting and walked to the corner of the room.
Right after I moved, all the white-robed people lined up in a circle and muttered something. Suddenly, a bright light shone from the center.
From the fading light, a figure of a cute looking girl appeared from its center.
Her fluffy chestnut hair swayed and her eyes were wide open in surprise. She was probably about 16 or 17 years old. The way she looked around in confusion was cute in its own way.
Same as me, the white-robed man inspected the girl, but this time, he nodded in satisfaction.
Joy rises from the surrounding.
After that, things went by quickly.
While still being shocked, the girl was brought to the royal throne.
Standing dumbfounded in front of the King, Queen, and Prince, she was told about the current circumstances of this country.
Incidentally, since they seemed to neglected me, I followed them on my own accord.
Now then, to summarize the discussion of the King who has been talking for a while, it would be like this.
This world is “Arweid”. (TLC: アーウェイト aaweito)
It’s a sword and magic fantasy world, a world where humans and demons fight with each other for territories.
And this country is the where the human king rules, the “Sarawin Kingdom”.
Right now, we were in the royal capital Hall’en? (TLC: ハーレン haaren. Thank you C.T. World of Words)
Currently, the human territory had decreased as far as one third from the original size, and because of the flood of refugees to the remaining land, there are overpopulation and food shortages everywhere, so the political situation was in a turmoil.
And a long time ago, the desperate people of this country performed a “Goddess Summoning” and managed to summon a goddess from another world.
We… Or rather, the girl that was summoned after me was the “Goddess” who possessed unique powers and fated to defeat the king of demons, the “Demon King.”
By the way, it seems the girl’s name is Misaka Reina.
Well, I don’t know what to think about saying this, but I’m glad I’m not the “Goddess”
At first, I thought, 「What the hell do you mean it was a mistake!??」 but being suddenly told by strangers to save a world you didn’t know by risking your life to defeat the Demon King, it’s not something you can call backsies on.
I would definitely refuse.
However, being unable to refuse was one the protagonist’s personality, probably.
Right now, after Misaka-san listened to the King’s speech with an earnest expression she looked in front of her with straight-forward eyes, as if she had decided on something.
「I understand. I will try my best for the sake of the people in this world」
Misaka-san spoke with a bright face filled with a smile and the royalty expressed their deepest gratitude. Meanwhile, the prince was blinded by the sheer beauty of Misaka-san’s smile.
Now then, it felt like everything was going to be wrapped up with a nice mood in this place, so I jumped out to the scene before I was being forgotten completely.
「Excuse me, can I ask something?」
「…Who is this girl?」
Yaay, the King’s voice has lowered down a pitch☆
The soldiers nearby began to approach me while unsheathing their swords.
They’re super scary.
But! But hey!!
I have an important question to ask about my future!
「This person was mistakenly summoned in the Goddess Summoning」
「Mistakenly summoned? What about her ability?」
「She does not have any. Her magic power and attribute are also average.」
「…And, what business does such a person want from me?」
Oh umm? Once he heard the word average, the King has been sending a really condescending look over here. I wonder what this indescribable feeling.
「…Please send me back to my original world」
As I suppressed the arising feelings and spoke those words, the Prince snorted.
「Pfft… That kind of magic doesn’t exist」
Well, it’s pretty much what I expected.
If there was any way to go back home, any Goddess that they summon would definitely want to return, whether immediately or in the future.
Yes, I had expected that.
But… Even so…
「You selfishly drag other people into your problem and then just ignore without second thought… Don’t scrー」
I wanted to yell “don’t screw with me!!” but a hand extended from behind and sealed my mouth.
「Apologies for her rudeness towards your presence. I will give her enough warning after this, so may you please find it in your spacious heart to forgive her?」
He said so while forcing me to bow to the king, while I struggled violently with all my might.
「If you say so, then what happened at this place is of no relevance.」
「I am gracious for your blessing. Now then, please excuse us.」
Just like that I was dragged away forcefully and withdrawn from the room, and the place I was finally given freedom was a courtyard-like area a short walk away.
「What do you think you’re doing!?」
「That’s my line! You fool!!」
The white robed man yelled back at me.
He was one of those people who summoned the Goddess.
He pulled back his hood with a rustle. His long silver hair and blue eyes glittered under the light. His face looks androgynous and very well-ordered. If I hadn’t heard his voice then I would’ve likely mistaken him for a woman.
「Don’t you realize you would be killed if you continue speaking like that!?」
「Of course I knew that!! But I… this is so frustrating!!」
They summoned me as they pleased and since I didn’t have much power they treated me like a mistake. When I asked them to at least send me back home, they just scoffed and said such a magic doesn’t exist.
If this isn’t called frustrating then I don’t know what it is.
「What the hell is with summoning someone and selfishly pushing their request onto them and not sending them home!? What the hell is with getting dragged in and having nothing but average powers!? Isn’t it normal!? It’s because the world I was just in was a place without magic or Demons!! It was a place where a peaceful daily life was the norm, it was that kind of world!!」
They suddenly kidnap me into this fantasy world, even worse, as a mistake. Now I couldn’t even go back home.
「Before looking down on someone, why don’t you people look into a mirror and see how ridiculous you are!! Don’t drag people from other worlds into your crisis!! If you can’t return us then don’t call us, you idiots!!!」
I wheezed heavily, grasping for breath after spilling my heart out. Meanwhile, the white-robed man just stared blankly, the color of guilt filled his face. He then slowly lowered his head.
「It’s exactly as you say. I apologize.」
「…………What do I do now?」
「You will be provided with the bare minimum of necessary knowledge to live in this world, some gold, and a place to live near the castle, I believe.」
In other words, they’re saying useless guys aren’t needed.
It’s only been about an hour and a half since I’ve come to this world.
I swore to myself.
I swore that I would do whatever it takes to survive and I would make those people who dragged me here speechless.
