There’s No Way the Receptionist of the Guild Can Be Yandere
We were brought to a room in the back of the Guild that resembled a conference room. I was currently sitting at a table opposite of Sylphy and the Guild Master.
“Listen here, boy. There are things I want to ask you.”
Sylphy quickly corrected the Master.
“Wh-Wh-What was that?”
“His name is not ‘boy’, it’s Minase-kun. Please, call him by his name properly.”
“Yes, that’s right.”
Is he scared of her because she’s Yandere or is he just intimidated by Sylphy? Sylphy let out a satisfied laugh and the Master continued speaking.
“So, ah — Minase-kun, is it?”
“Just Minase is fine.”
I told him he could drop the ‘kun’ because I thought he might be embarrassed. He let out a sigh of relief and I seemed to be correct.
“Then, you can call me Grave.”
“Alright. Then, Grave-san, what is it you wanted to ask me?”
“Okay. My first question for you is, you’re not from Gran Island, are you?”
Why does he know that? She said that crystal only checks for suspicious skills…..did it also check the rest of my status? Or maybe it saw my titles…
“I think I’ve got my answer after seeing your reaction.”
“…..is that bad?”
I bit my lip as I anxiously waited for his answer.
“Yeah, Master. Is that bad?”
Sylphy stood up from her chair and got close to the Master.
I could see his face was overcome with fear.
“I-it’s fine, calm down. I’d have heard rumours of him if he had been on this island for a long time. I just wanted to confirm it. I didn’t mean anything bad by asking!”
“……If so, that’s fine.”
Grave desperately tried to clear up the misunderstanding. After being convinced, Sylphy returned to her seat.
Grave let out a long sigh.
“…..I won’t let it go next time.”
Sylphy added this, and I could see Grave tremble.
This is an incomprehensible situation for me. The Yandere Sylphy seems to not want to hurt me. I feel a little relieved knowing that….
Well, I need to get this conversation to progress some, so I asked, “Why did you want to know that?”
“Ah, right, I wanted to know why you came to this island. Why are you trying to be an adventurer?”
“For personal reasons….that’s probably not the answer you wanted.”
I feel like I’m being interrogated. I gave him the best answer I could think of, but I can’t really tell what Grave is thinking.
“Alright then. Let me ask you this straight up. Are you here to destroy my guild? If that is the case, I will use all of my power to capture you.”
Destroy his guild? Why would he think that? Of course, I have no intention of doing that — but, before I could speak, Sylphy stood up again.
“…..Master? Did you not hear me before?”
“It should be fine! As long as he isn’t a dangerous person it will be fine! Of course, if he’s dangerous I’ll have to capture him! Sylphy, you can understand that, right!?”
“Wh-Why aren’t you saying anything?”
“Right. I-I have a great idea. When we capture MInase-kun, we can put him in your room. We’ll confine him to your room and you can do as you like to him.”
“If that’s the case, it’s fine.”
“ — It is!?”
I instinctively let out a scream.
I only just managed to escape from Rose and now another Yandere is making plans to confine me. The memories of being held captive by a Yandere are still too fresh in my mind.
I strongly protested against this idea.
“You both just need to calm down. The only reason you would need to confine me is if I had caused some problem.”
“Minase-kun stole my heart and that has caused me problems. We must confine him now.”
Aaaahhhh. Even though she was just on my side a moment ago! Sylphy has suddenly become my strongest enemy.
“A-Anyway, I don’t have any plans on hurting this guild in any way. Will you please tell me why you think I would?”
“…..Hmm, you say that even though you can see the damage you’ve done to Sylphy, the receptionist of my guild.”
“I’m sorry, that was my fault.”
I apologized and bowed to the Guild Master.
“Hmm…..For now, you say that you have no intention of harming this guild?”
“Yes, that’s the truth.”
I looked directly into Grave’s eyes as I answered.
“…..Alright. I will trust you.”
“Do you really believe me?”
I wanted him to trust me but I didn’t expect him to believe me so easily.
“If I think about it calmly, I don’t believe you’d ever have the chance to destroy my guild.”
Grave turned his head to look at Sylphy.
“No matter what I think, I think the punishment you’d receive is too much.”
That seems like cruel and unusual punishment.
“So, I’ll accept you as a member of this guild. Of course, there will be some restrictions on you. One of them being that you are not allowed to speak to any receptionist except for Sylphy.”
“I understand. Thank you for your generous response.”
“Are you okay with that rule Syl…phy….”
Grave ended his sentence in a strange way. That’s because Sylphy still wants to keep me confined.
Obviously, I was afraid……
“Minase-kun, can you show your face in the guild from time to time? Just so I know you’re…..doing well.”
“Eh, well, of course.”
I plan on leaving the island in the future. There’s no way I can say that. I just nodded to him. Somehow….I feel like I’ve triggered some kind of death flag…..Well, even if I die, I’ll just be revived again.
Sylphy acknowledged the Master with a simple. “I don’t mind.”
“Okay then. Sylphy, please register Minase-kun as an adventurer.”
“Yes, I’ll register him at once.”
Sylphy left the conference room….As she disappeared from sight, we both let out a sigh.
“Minase-kun, I’m sorry about Sylphy.”
“Why are you the one apologizing? I’m the one that should apologize. It’s due to my skill that Sylphy has become a Yandere….right?”
“Certainly, due to your high ranked [To Be Loved to Death by Yanderes] skill she became like that, but it is still the responsibility of the guild to set up countermeasures against Yanderes.”
“You’ve set up countermeasures?”
“There are many different people that gather at the Adventurer’s Guild and there have been some men that have had the same skill as you. Though, this is the first time I’ve ever seen it ranked so high.”
In other words, in the world that the Yandere Medea-nee created, the people have problems with Yanderes. In a way, it’s to be expected……Well, expecting something like that would be a little strange.
“No matter how high their level of ’To Be Loved to Death By Yanderes’ may have been, it would never be able to affect Sylphy. Even with your rank with that skill being SSS, it shouldn’t have had any effect on her.”
“Ah, you seem to be misunderstanding that skill a bit. If the affected person doesn’t have feelings for the skill holder, even if they become Yandere, they would not behave how Sylphy is behaving.”
’To Be Loved to Death By Yanderes’ amplifies the affection for the skill holder of any surrounding Yanderes. On top of that, it has the ability to draw out the Yandere trait from any surrounding people.
But, there have been other people with that same skill. When Sylphy interacted with them, even if she did develop the Yandere trait, she didn’t become obsessed with them.
In other words, the reason that both Rose and Sylphy turned into Yanderes and became obsessed with me isn’t entirely due to that one skill. I’m not happy or sad after realizing that…..It’s a strange feeling.
“That’s why Sylphy was turned into a Yandere.”
“Although I have no control over that skill, I’m still sorry that it happened.”
“Don’t worry about it. So, you must have a reason for being here.”
“……Besides becoming an adventurer, I wanted to form a party with other adventurers.”
“—I’m sorry but that is impossible.”
“An immediate response!?”
“Well, think about it. Do you really think there are any men that would want to join you, knowing that if they did, they’d become involved with an endless scourge of Yanderes?”
“…….I doubt it.”
“And do you think there are any women that would want to be with a man that will almost certainly turn them into a Yandere?”
“I don’t think so.”
“Of course, if there is a person that likes Yanderes they’d be willing to join.”
I want someone to protect me from Yanderes, but I’m so overwhelmed with Yanderes that nobody wants to protect me.
……There’s no one. I’m sure that Rose has sent someone out to capture me. If I can’t find someone to protect me I’ll be brought back to her in no time.
“…..So there’s nothing I can do.”
“There is one way. I don’t like the idea but you could buy a slave.”
I bit my lip after hearing these words from Grave.
