Journey of an Exiled Middle-Aged Adventurer Becoming a Hero [Chapter 1]

It's been ten years since I was exiled, and it's been a long time since I've had a medical checkup

“Kyle, we don’t need useless people like you!”

“W-Wait! I…”

Ten years ago, I was expelled from a certain party.

The reason was simple: I was useless.

My stats were below average and I could barely fight.

That’s why I was given the most unpleasant tasks in the party, but even that became unnecessary.

As soon as the party rose to S rank, I was ordered to be expelled.

“Anyway… lately, I feel like I have too much leftover power.”

Since then, I’ve been working as a solo adventurer.

I used to take on solo E-rank quests at first, but now, ten years later, inexplicably, I’m being assigned S-rank quests.

Honestly, I don’t understand why.

It’s said that an adventurer’s prime is usually around twenty-five on average.

After that, strength declines, and most retire around thirty.

I’m currently in my thirties.

For some reason, I defeated an ogre in a single blow.

“Will this fulfill the quest?”

I skinned the ogre and collected the requested materials, then set off on the journey back.

By the way, the ogre’s rank was S.

It’s a magical beast that would normally be impossible to defeat for a standard party.

Somehow, I was taking it down in one blow.

I don’t even understand why.

As the years and days passed, I felt myself growing stronger.

“I earn a lot of money, but… it’s really scary.”

I was afraid of my own power.

It’s not like I was undergoing special training.

If I had to say something, I do a hundred squats and push-ups a day.

Can I really defeat S-rank magical beasts in a single blow just with that…?

It doesn’t seem possible, does it?

“I’m scared, so maybe I should get a health checkup. It would be terrifying if I had been hit by some strange curse.”

That’s why, at the age of thirty, I decided to undergo a health checkup for the first time since my childhood.

It would be terrifying if I had been given a debuff like ‘Temporarily strong, but in the end, you die.’

I had long thought that I might be under a curse.

I had received many party invitations lately, but out of fear of the curse, I would tell them, “I don’t know when I’ll die.”

And having been alone for so long was becoming increasingly hard to bear, so I thought it was time to get a checkup.

And the day of the health checkup arrived.

I was somewhat nervous as I waited in the waiting room.

I had completed all the tests and was now just awaiting the results.

What will I do if they tell me I have little time left to live?

Honestly, if they were to tell me something like that, I might end up crying like an old man in distress.

“It’s scary… Really scary…”

As I read a manga I had nearby, I couldn’t help but tremble.

I couldn’t even focus on the manga content.

I actually hate going to the hospital.

At times like this, I can’t bear it.

“Oh no! Only five months to live?! What am I going to do now?! Aaaaah!”


A young man came out of the consultation room crying.

Huh? Was he given a limited life diagnosis?

In such a small hospital? Is this a joke?

I couldn’t stop trembling.

The manga had creased entirely due to my shivers.

“Kyle-san, please proceed to the examination room.”


A nurse called me.

I was afraid, but I had no other choice. I had to face it.

If they were to tell me I have little time left to live, I could use my savings and go on a fun trip…

Shaking, I opened the door to the examination room.

And I sat in front of the doctor.

“Well… Kyle-san…”


The elderly doctor silently looked at the paper.

What will he tell me at this moment?

Will it be a limited life diagnosis or a curse after all?

Swallowing nervously, I awaited the doctor’s voice.

“Your stats significantly exceed the average. In fact, I have never seen stats like these before. I feel like I’m examining the body of a being from another race.”

“E-Excuse me?”

What I was told was completely opposite to what I had imagined.
