I’ve been in a coma for about three years.
My mother held me for the first time in three years and cried, while the son, who have 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 I am now 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 hometown after 50 years, and that’s the most important.
I will start going to be hardworking this time and take advantage of this opportunity.
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 her attitude a few months later as I was 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 should have sold their house, sold their car, and owed money to save the main character in coma.
Honestly, 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 coma patient who was in the hospital every day would be very expensive especially when three years had passed. This was main concern and out house wasn’t very bad, but it wasn’t very good.
Like the main characters of other fantasy novels, I decided to quickly dispose of out debts and move my family to a good house. I decided 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 went to after being discharged made me speechless in a different sense.
“Hey, aren’t you going to our house? Where are we?”
“This is our house.”
“What? What are you talking about? We moved in at 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 in the middle of Seoul, and has a wealthy family vibe.
How can I believe that out of the blue?
To the room they took me in and said it 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 it were a dream, I’d like to spend more time with my family, but I realized 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 move, they move to La Elta’s town of Veraford.”
“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 still no law in place that maintained players and monsters, but over the time, the authority of the player will rise and then we’ll be able to live better.”
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 a three-year unemployed life.
In other words, six years have passed since I became an adult, but I still don’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 the player’s awakening 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.
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.”
