e suffering together, it would be unfair for one person to keep it all for themselves.
Wouldn’t that be considered selfish?”

“…I found it myself prior to the bee incident.
Even if I had come across it while catching the bees, I still discovered it on my own, which means you cannot just claim ownership of it.”

Jin-woo maintained his composure and responded in a typical problem-solving fashion as Gilbert became increasingly agitated and argumentative.

“What’s wrong with this guy?!”

“Stop it! Gilbert, do you really want to talk like that to someone who’s just been reincarnated?”

Although Gilbert left in a huff, no one in the group tried to stop him.

Observing Gilbert’s pathetic behavior, Cliff, with a cold tongue, nodded at Jinwoo as if to tell him not to take it to heart.

“He’s probably just extra sensitive from being hurt, so don’t hold it against him too much.”

“I understand.”

“Anyway…
I’m sorry for bringing you here and exposing you to danger.”

Jin-woo, whose evaluation of Cliff had just gone up, readily accepted his apology.

“It wasn’t an intentionally dangerous situation, and I didn’t get hurt, so it’s okay.”

“Thanks for understanding.
By the way, I noticed your movements weren’t normal earlier…
were you perhaps a professional athlete in your past life?”


“…I don’t think so.”

He was just an ordinary electrician.
Of course, he was in good shape, but that was thanks to the practical muscles he gained from various part-time jobs and manual labor, as he had nowhere else to rely on.

Even after he got a job, he consistently maintained his body, thinking of it as an asset.
However, he had never done any training that could be helpful in a situation like today.

But still, my body moved the way I wanted it to.

No, it was even better than that.
His strength, speed, and flexibility had all improved beyond what he remembered.

“You don’t need to jump to conclusions so soon.
If someone shows exceptional talent in Gaia, it’s usually related to their past lives.
In fact, most Olympic gold medalists on Earth who were reincarnated here also become athletes.”

“Is that so?”

Jin-woo looked at Cliff, who was excitedly talking, feeling a little uneasy.

He felt like the other was expecting more from him than just taking care of a novice reincarnator.

***

The group returned to the makeshift station while chatting about this and that.
It was already late afternoon, so Cliff suggested that they all rest and meet up later to eat dinner.

The group scattered to do their own things.
They didn’t see Gilbert, who went ahead alone, but no one was worried if he had arrived safely.

“What are you going to do?”

“I want to take a shower first.”

“Yeah, you seem to be someone who is neat and tidy.
However, since there are many cases where you can’t shower for a few days while living as a Roamer, it’s better to gradually get used to it.”

“…”

Although he had never said that he would be a Roamer, Cliff was speaking as if it were a given fact.

Jin-woo decided to get the necessary information instead of creating unnecessary trouble by denying what the other just said.

“Can we use the shower here like we did at the temporary station?”

There was a shower on the train, but it was much smaller and uncomfortable, and there were fewer of them.
It wasn’t a place he wanted to use while the train was parked like this.

“You have to use points, but you can use it.”

“Yesterday…”

“That was a shower attached to the information center.
It’s a service for those who have just been reincarnated.”

“…”

Seeing Jin-woo, who thought that all the stalls were the same in any world, Cliff laughed and patted him on the shoulder.


“I told you, living is the same wherever you are.
I’ll pay for the shower, so come with me.”

“Thank you.”

Jin-woo, who was about to decline out of habit, changed his mind and accepted Cliff’s kindness.

This was because Cliff’s words that it would take a lot of money to settle down sounded realistic.

Didn’t he say I needed 300,000 bring just to get citizennship? Even if I work like a machine, I don’t know when I’ll be able to collect that much.
If I lose money on small things like this…

Even while washing himself with hot water, Jin-woo’s head was noisy with worries about money.

After returning to the train to take a break, he still felt suffocated and eventually climbed back onto the roof of the train to clear his thoughts while quietly gazing up at the sky and closing his eyes.
Since the train was stopped, there was no danger, and he wanted to take the opportunity to organize his thoughts.

Right now, the only options are either being a Roamer or working at a factory…

He had to see the factory for himself to know exactly what kind of place it was, but generally speaking, it probably wasn’t a place where he could make a lot of money in a short period of time.

Stable but with low income, or risky but with high returns…

Lee Jin-woo recalled the life of a Roamer he had observed throughout the day.

Although there were definitely some risky moments, it felt like he could handle them well enough.

If I were alone, it might have been easier…
if I just prepare well enough…

Zap!

Lee Jin-woo tried to generate a small electric spark at the tip of his finger, an uncommon ability that was mentioned in the guidebook.
If he could control this power freely, he would surely become a competitive Roamer.

I need to practice.
I’ll need a private room if I don’t want to get caught…
Of course, it’ll be much more expensive.
It would be better to work solo to save money rather than with a team.

He couldn’t just entrust his back to others.

Of course, Cliff had taken care of him kindly, but it didn’t feel like pure kindness, as if he had some ulterior motives.

Getting stabbed in the back is getting tiresome…

At that moment, Lee Jin-woo heard an unwelcome voice as he recalled his bitter past.

Thud.

“Is that really true, Brother?”

“Hahaha, of course it is.
So just do well with me from now on.”

…Senior and Gilbert? Why are they together? No, wait, did that guy finally snap out of it?

Lee Jin-woo carefully hid his presence and focused on their conversation.
