Welcome to the Guild of the Exiled - Chapter 6

“A job, you say… ? But, how do we…..”
When Virine heard that I was going to get her first job, she tilted her head.
An understandable response, considering that far from creating a solid policy for the guild, I haven’t even decided its name yet. It would be weird for her to be able to get a job as is.
“Yeah, I know someone, you see…. though I don’t actually want to depend on that person ever so often…”
Under present conditions, however, this alternative would probably be the most reliable.
Surely I’ll never hear the end of it from them, but as a guild master-to-be, let’s just quietly accept my baptism…
‘‘Let’s go at once’’, I said as I led the way for Virine.
Fortunately, our destination is a guild in the city, and it’s not that far away.
As the adventuring business reaches its heyday, presently there are guilds all over the city, with each competing over the adventurers.
Our destination is one of those guilds that’s scattered along the town―― oh, there, I see it.
A sign that reads “Adventurer Guild [Avalon]” was hung from the building ahead of me with people bustling to and fro.
The building is already large as it is. It is crystal clear that as an adventurer’s guild, it’s a comparatively large-scaled operation.
“Is this…. really a guild?”
“I’ve got a friend inside. Well, a fellow student from the academy.”
I regained my breath for a bit and opened the door,
“Welcomeeeee, reception’s oveeeer here————- hey, if it isn’t Eisen! Long time no see!”
A girl with short red hair cheerfully greeted us.
From the guild uniform and hat that she wears, it is apparent that she is the guild’s receptionist.
“It’s been awhile, Kagarina. Heeh, I see your uniform has got a new design. It looks good on you.”
“S, shut up! Even if you’re praising me, it d– doesn’t make me happy at all!”
The red-haired receptionist sullenly looks the other way.
Good grief, this tomboy. It would’ve been better if she just takes my remarks honestly.
“Umm… are you two acquainted by any chance?”
Virine asked curiously after seeing our interaction.
“Yeah, she’s my fellow yearmate from the academy. May I present to you Kagarina Kagura… she’s the only daughter of this guild’s―― Avalon’s master.”
“Guild master’s dau――! Ple, pleased to meet you, Kagarina-san! I’m Virine Aprilia, an adventurer! I hope we’ll get along from now on!”
Virine bows her head.
She felt humbled when she heard that Kagarina was the daughter of a guild master.
“Well met, Virine-chan. Anyway, please, you don’t have to be that stiff. I’m not that good with all that formal stuff. I’d like to maintain close ties with you adventurers as much as possible. I hope the fact that I’m the guild master’s daughter doesn’t bother you .”
“Ye, yes. Thank you very much!”
Kagarina flashed her a bright smile. Being the sweet girl Virine is, apparently Kagarina took a liking to her too.
Considering Virine is as straight as an arrow, surely they’ll get along just fine.
“Well then, why are you in my shop? You’re bringing a cute girl with you too. You’re not here just to spew bullshit like ‘hey, a guild just hired me, I’ve got myself a girlfriend too～’, are you?”
Kagarina asked, with a hint of sarcasm in her question too, for some reason.
Even in the past, she would always tease me when it comes to women.
I wish she’d do something about this habit of hers.
“Yeah, um, about that…. I’ve given up looking for a job. Instead, I’ve decided to start my own guild.”
Kagarina made an utterly dismayed face, then she held her head unsteadily.
“No… well… it’s that weirdo Eisen after all. I knew he’d say something like that one day……….”
“How rude. I just believe that people can’t determine an adventurer’s worth by their stats. That’s all.”
“Well that’s weird, alright! You keep saying that stats don’t matter in this age, of course you can’t land yourself a job….. Don’t tell me this Virine-chan here is――”
“That’s right. She is the first member of that new glorious guild.”
Kagarina grasped both of Virine’s hands gently, and she said,
“It’s okay, Virine-chan. Eisen’s holding something over you, isn’t he? If that’s the case, then please tell me right away, alright? I’ll report it to the federation right away, he’ll be thrown into the slammer then.”
“N, no! That’s ――!”
“… I’m not. Please stop it with your misleading statements.”
…. Just don’t bring Virine into this.
It might not look like it but I scouted her while she was grieving over her expulsion. And as a guild leader, I’d like to make an organisation that would put its members first, though….
Kagarina went around the reception counter another time and asked,
“So what kind of guild are you making? I have no doubt it would have something to do with the adventurers, though….”
“To tell you the truth, I haven’t decided on the specifics yet. But for the time being, I’m thinking of gathering the exiles, and making a guild just for them. As a stepping stone, I’d like to get a job first――”
“None―― we’ve got none. Usually there wouldn’t be a single job entrusted to a pair of a guild academy graduate and a single adventurer, anyway.”
“Thought so, then―― have you got requests that aren’t the usual, then?”
Kagarina quivered at my counter-question.
“Surely you have them? Requests that are so unprofitable, no adventurers would be willing to take them on…. the ones that have to be dealt internally――”
