Welcome to the Guild of the Exiled - Chapter 3

Virine stopped crying when she heard me, and looked at me with a blank look on her face.
Likewise, the members of the “Silver Wolf” were also stunned due to their confusion.
I opened my mouth once again,
“You’ve already sent a withdrawal notification for this kid to the guild, right? Then, Virine-chan, is it? I’ll take her in. No objections taken.”
“Wh… wh…. what? You, which party are you from!?”
“I don’t belong to any party. If anything, I’m not even an adventurer. I’m planning to start a new guild and am scouting for members. Apparently an exceptionally talented adventurer has just now become free, so I called out. ”
—- That’s right, I’ve decided.
I won’t join any guild.
I’ll build a new guild with my own hands.
I’ll gather a large number of exiles, and build an organisation that’ll support them and be supported by them.
And then I’ll have the world know that they’re not at all incompetent.
This is a concrete embodiment of my decision.
One step forward to a new guild that doesn’t even have a name yet.
“New guild…. you say…?”
Having heard what I said, Salvio, who had been taken aback a while ago, flashes a fearless smile.
“Hyahahah…. You’d better stop. Maybe you’re just gathering people and calling out folks at random but since I’m kind, I’ll generously give you some advice.”
He shrugged and pointed at Virine.
“Here we have ‘Virine of the Bottom’. Why’d we call her that, you might ask. Well her stats are by far the lowest in our party. In terms of attack, defense, strength, and stamina, she is the lowest in all of them. Adding to that, since she’s so timid she’s useless in battle. She’ll just be a baggage if you hire her, alright? Oi, Virine! Show him your status!”
Virine displays her status as ordered, even though she doesn’t have to oblige.
It might be because she’s a straightforward person, but in her case, it might be that she’s just too meek.
Then, as Virine activated the “Status Scouter” wrapped around her wrist, letters of light emerged in the air.
So, this is her stats…
I see, certainly for an S-rank party member, it’s not particularly high by any standard.
Conventionally, S-ranked adventurers would have four digits in each attribute.
If none of them exceed three digits, then they would at most be A-ranked.
Nevertheless—- the more I look at it, the more meaningless I find it to be.
“Take a look, none of them exceed three digits, see? The other members are all in the four digits. By the way, I, as their party leader, have these as my stats——”
Salvio sneered as he activated his own “Status Scouter” to display his stats as comparison.
As for me, I couldn’t bear to see or hear any more of this, so I extended my hand to Virine.
“Virine-chan, just turn it off already. Come, give me your hand.”
“Eh? Ye, yes…..”
With the status display turned off, I took Virine’s hand, removed the “Status Scouter” from her wrist and threw it away.
“With this, you shall no longer be tied to those numbers. Virine, I’ll teach you your true worth. Will you come with me?”
“Eh, ummmm…. Yes….! I, I still can’t put my thoughts in order, but let me come with you!”
Virine was confused for a moment, but soon she nodded with fervour.
Having watched such a scene, Salvio and his folks dropped their jaw.
“Wha… you, have you gone mad!? You’re throwing the ‘Status Scouter’ away……..!”
“I’m perfectly sane, and unlike you, my eyes aren’t clouded. You can’t judge your companions beyond their numbers, and yet you’re an S-ranked adventurer? Besides, Salvio-san, you’re not cut out to be a party leader in the first place.”
“———–! You dare…….!”
In a fit of rage, Salvio’s face was dyed in bright red.
‥ …… If I were to say anything more, there’ll be bloodshed here, it seems.
I successfully scouted the person I want, perhaps I should withdraw from here.
“Shall we go then, Virine-chan?”
I gave her back a push as I’m about to leave the guild.
…. Ah, but let me confirm one last thing.
“Hey, it seems that you people had Virine-chan to avoid traps for you but… have you ever brought this kid to the dungeons with you, even just for once?”
“Aaah!? Of course we do, many……. times………….”
Salvio’s roaring voice was halted on its track.
It was the result of him tracing his memories———- surely it was the case.
I gave Salvio, who had lost his speech, a sidelong glance, then left the guild with Virine.
Immediately after we’ve gotten outside, Salvio’s frustrated loud voice, along with the noise of rampage and the sound of furniture breaking, could be heard from inside the guild.
