I Am Just an Ordinary Office Worker chapter 2

“Sung-Han!”

“Mom!”

“Sung-Han!”

“Mom!”

I’ve been in a coma for about three years.

My mother held me for the first time in three years and cried, while me, the son, who just met her for the first time in 50 years, did not cry.

Anyway, I shouldn’t let out any cry.

I’m no longer the strong Swordmaster who lived like that for 50+ years, but now I am just an ordinary man that got in coma at the age of 20 and woke up to be a normal young man who just turned 23.

I may be at the sensitive age, and old enough to be led by my emotions, but I didn’t cry anyway.

“Was it a dream?”

I calculated my physical condition by clenching my fists.

I don’t think it was a dream.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a dream or not.

I’ve regained my family and returned to my hometown after 50 years, and that’s the most important thing.

I will start working hard this time and take advantage of this rare opportunity.

Really…

Unfortunately, my commitment did not last for week.

When I returned to my normal life, I remembered how good it was to waste time living a normal life.

My mother’s expression, who was always patting me on my back when I woke up, changed a few months later when I started spending my time reading comic books while scratching my stomach and lying on the sofa.

At first, I was told not to go out and avoid working, so I was just watching TV, meet my friends and go out for a walk. But after living my life like this, I got accustomed to it.

The hand that used to comfort my back has now become more violent day by day and now my back long been transformed into a sand back since the second year of my unemployed life. (TL: sand bag but changed bag to back.)

To be honest, I proudly say that my brother Lee Sung-hyun is responsible for this.

Usually in fantasy novels, when the main character was in an accident and goes back to their own world, isn’t their family usually in debt?

They would usually have their house and their car sold, and also owed money to save the main character in coma.

So when I opened my eyes and got to know what was going on, I was a bit worried about what would my family’s situation.

The hospital bill for a patient in coma, who was in the hospital every day, would be very expensive especially when three years had passed. This was my main concern as soon as I woke up. Our house wasn’t very bad, but it wasn’t very good either.

Like the main characters of other fantasy novels, I decided to quickly dispose of our debts and move my family to a good house. I wanted to do my best and help my whole family live a comfortable life.

I thought that maybe I should go into the private loan sharks’ hideouts and destroy them all.

But in my case… I may have read too many novels.

The “home” that I returned to after being discharged made me speechless.

“Hey, aren’t you going to our house? Where are we?”

“This is our house.”

“What? What are you talking about? We moved to a rich man house? Is this our car too?”

“This is my car, actually.”

“Hey, what about our debt? I thought we would be living on the street.”

“You… did you have any weird dreams?”

As far as I remember, our house was a small apartment.

Suddenly, our house is now a detached house right in the middle of Seoul with a wealthy family vibe.

How can I believe that out of the blue?

The room they took me in, saying was my room, was the size of the living room of our original house.

I wish this was really my room.

Oh, maybe I’m still in a coma and this is just another dream.

Lying on the bed with a smile, I closed my eyes.

If this was still a dream, I’d like to spend more time with my family. Back when I live as a swordman, I realized that the longer the time I spent alone, the more emptiness I’d feel.

I was happy to see my family even in my dream.

Let’s wake up quickly.

I’m gonna wake up and take my frustrations out towards the monsters!

***

It wasn’t a dream!!!

My brother sat down in front of me and started explaining the changes the world faced while I was asleep.

About half a year before I woke up, the world started to change.

“So players can travel on portals to places called La Elta.”

“La Elta? Do you know La Elta?”

How did they know La Elta?

La Elta was the name of the world I lived in for 50 years.

“Of course I know, I am a player too. When all players first arrived, they all appeared at La Elta’s Veraford town.”

“Veraford? That’s where I was? My house is there too.”

My older brother patted my head with a very pitiful expression.

His expression seemed to say, ‘Yes, you’ve really hurt your head,’ so I closed my mouth.

I don’t know what’s going on, but let’s hear him out first.

“I may look like this, but I am actually a pretty good player.”

Really? My brother look so weak.

“There is no law in place that maintained players and monsters, but over the time, the authority of the players will start to get power so we will be able to live better.”

What?

Am I finally be able to become rich and unemployed?

“Don’t worry about it, from now on, just live comfortably.”

A rich unemployed man!

The life of a rich unemployed man is now in front of me!

Of course, when I was in La Elta, I could have enjoy my unemployed life if I wanted to, but there was a huge difference between my unemployed life in the fantasy world near my Middle Ages and my unemployed life in Korea, where the Internet is full of fun and entertainment.

I shouted “Hurray!”

My brother just smiled and stroked my head, without knowing what I was thinking inside.

So I’ve been in a coma for three years. I enjoyed another three-year of unemployed life.

In other words, six years have passed since I became an adult, but I still didn’t have a single line in my resume.

Translator’s Note: So the story is about a younger brother being spoiled by his older brother. I also want to have a relationship like that.

***

At first, I thought about becoming a player, but it didn’t work out as I planned.

Shortly after waking up at coma, I checked myself in the player’s awakening center and headed to the town office to get my ID.

I was looking forward to see the building of “Player Awakening Center”.

It is said that within this building, people can check whether they are a Player or not.

They are also the only place that issues identification cards for the Players to use when they go in La Elta.

I am a man who has lived there for 50 years.

Who else could be called a player other than me?

Of course, I ran excitedly thinking that I would be able to enjoy a blessed life pretending to be a Generous player after receiving the result of being a top-rated player.

(Translator: The word used was not generous but something related to being Unemployed but still receiving salary.)

“Lee Sung-Han is an ordinary person.”

The staff at the district office in charge of the prosecution said with a forced smile.

“What? That can’t be true.”

“Oh, I guess, I have too much Mana to be measured with Earth’s instruments! Well, I guess I’m SSS-class.”

A look of disbelief appeard on the staff.

Although she was smiling.

The staff quickly began to explain about the instrument.

“The device does not measure the amount of Mana, but rather activates a person’s status window. Of course, you can’t see the details such as skills, but you can check the level or basic skills. The fact that Lee Sung-Han’s information didn’t come up means that the status window is not activated. Are you able to activate a status window?”

“A status window? How do you activate a status window?”

“You can say ‘status window’ thinking that you want to open a status window.”

“Status window. Status window! Status window!”

“···”

“···”

And nothing happened.

Having the staff lose interest in him, he was chased away from the office.

“Goodbye.”

I left the office with an ID card for ordinary people.

I can’t believe I’m a normal person.

I can’t believe I’m a normal person!

Does that mean that I would enjoy a real unemployed life where I spend all my money and enjoy my life without fulfilling duties or responsibilities?!

Once again, I shouted “Hurray.”

I Am Just an Ordinary Office Worker

I Am Just an Ordinary Office Worker

The OP but ordinary office worker
Score 9.6
Status: Ongoing Type: Author: Released: 2020 Native Language: Korean
Class C player Kim Han-bi stood still and looked at the big monster in front of her. To be exact, she was looking at the wreckage of the shattered monster. “This… what the hell…” No way. In Korea. No, in the whole world. She have never seen a player who can break a big monster into pieces with just a fist. If one or two of such players existed, the monster’s population would be half of the current existing ones. Kim Han-bi turned her head toward the man who created this mess. The man, wearing a black plastic bag over his head, was riding on a bicycle while brushing off the blood from his suit. “Oh, I am so bloody. This blood doesn’t come off easily.” “Hey…” The man on the bicycle turned his head towards the voice calling him. Of course, what Kim Han-bi faced was not a face with eyes, nose, and mouth, but a black plastic bag. ‘How did you get rid of the monsters? Did you know the monster would show up? Is the one you just used a skill? Why are you wearing a plastic bag?’ All kinds of questions lingered in her head, but there was only one question that came out from her mouth. “Who are you?” The man in the plastic bag answered Kim Han-bi’s question in a very refreshing way. “I’m an office worker.” “What?” “I’m just an ordinary office worker.”
