World’s Fastest Level up! ~as a Result of the Awakening of My Incompetence Skill [Transfer Within Dungeon], I Became the Strongest Without Being Restricted by the Rules of the Dungeon. - 142
Chapter 142 – Glare
After that, as nothing happened, we decided to disband.
Before parting, everyone once again thanked me, and they also told me that they won’t ever disclose the information about my abilities. In addition, they said it would be great if a talented person like me could join their guild too.
Although I avoided giving them a clear answer there, once I returned home, I started thinking about that in the living room.
As far as I could see during the joint capture, they didn’t show an arrogant attitude like some high-ranked adventurers. Which means, personality-wise I could trust them. The problem is whether it is worth it for me to join the guild or not.
To be honest, I still can’t conclude anything at this point. Yagami’s party is indeed the top party in the Yoizuki guild, but there is no doubt that I am superior in terms of abilities alone. That can be seen from today’s joint capture.
In fact, taking into consideration that the composition of my skill, and that [Transfer Within Dungeon] is specialized for solo, I actually didn’t feel that much attraction to join them as of now. Of course, they also can’t be my backing. If there is a possibility of me joining them, it is for her, who simply far surpassed them…
“In the end, how strong is Claire actually?”
I suddenly spoke aloud a question that had been in my mind for a while.
I know that S-rank adventurers are special existences who stand out among adventurers. However, that was limited to knowledge, as I had never actually witnessed a battle of that level. A while ago, I indeed saw Claire kill a level 40,000 monster in an instant, but I didn’t think she’s getting serious at that time.
Currently, my biggest interest in that guild is her. I couldn’t make a decision until I knew her true abilities. That was my honest opinion.
However, this is if it was just me who is going to join—.
“Onii-chan, what are you mumbling about for a while?”
Hana, who was in her sleepwear then sat in front of me. Usually, she uses a red ribbon for a ponytail, but perhaps because she was just out of the bath, she had her glossy black hair down to her shoulder, which changed her impression from the usual lively girl, to a graceful girl. Well, the fact that she is cute doesn’t change, though.
Leaving that aside, I was just about to think about her. As follows, I asked.
“Does Hana want to join a guild?”
Hearing that, Hana tilted her head. As she already knew about my power, I don’t have to lie about anything here.
Based on that thought, I explained the recent events to her. Although she widened her eyes when she heard that the fact that I was the one who killed Yanagi and that I was concealing my true ability was found out by the Yoizuki Guild, after hearing they have no intention to punish me (Or rather, there is no need to), Hana stroked her chest in relief.
But the main subject starts here. In that flow, I was recruited by the Yoizuki and presently have temporarily joined them. I also told Hana that after today’s joint capture, I think it is fine to give joining Yoizuki a positive consideration.
That was because I can’t always dive into the dungeon with Hana. Even after setting aside the fact that we needed a backing, I still think she needs a trustworthy party… or should I say companions, for the sake of leveling up efficiently. If it’s Hana’s unique skill, it is unlikely she will be turned down after all.
“Rei and Yui were also in Yoizuki. I think it would be great to have some people you could trust there.”
“Un. I’m certainly happy to have Yui-senpai and Rei-senpai there. But…”
After a short pause, Hana said.
“Is Onii-chan really fine with that? From what you said earlier, you will also join them together with me, right? Me aside, I don’t think there is any merit for Onii-chan to join a guild, though?”
“That’s not the case. Being in the same guild as Hana is actually more convenient and… it’s not like I have no other purpose for joining.”
After hearing that, Hana finally seemed to be convinced.
“I see. Then, I too will give it a positive consideration. I have an interest in joining a guild to begin with after all…”
“Then, I’ll ask the Guild Master to make time to explain various things to you. It’s better for Hana to listen with your own ears after all–”
When I was about to finish my words, my smartphone rang, displaying a number that I didn’t know on the screen. Although I don’t know who it is, I decided to receive it for the time being.
『This is Asakura. I am very sorry for the sudden call.』
It was definitely a Asakura, but it was Claire and not the Guild Master.
“Claire? What’s wrong all of a sudden? And I don’t think I have given you my phone number before?”
『I asked my father to tell me, because there is something I had to say to you』
“Something you wanted to say… ?”
W-what would she want to say by specially making a phone call…. Then, towards me who was feeling confused about that, Claire continued.
『If Amane-san is fine with it, could you give me some time tomorrow?』
“W-well, I don’t have any problem with that”
『Thank you very much. Regarding the time and place…』
As Claire was telling me about the meeting place and time for tomorrow, I took a note.
“I think I will be fine with that time.”
『I’m glad. Well then, see you tomorrow』
“Aa… See you tomorrow.”
After exchanging farewell words and confirming the call has ended, I directed my gaze towards Hana.
“I’m sorry to answer the phone call in the middle of talking, Hana–”
I wonder why, but Hana was glaring at me with scornful eyes.
“Mu. Onii-chan, the person on the phone earlier was a woman, wasn’t it?”
“Aa. An acquaintance who belongs to Yoizuki Guild”
“So it was like that. You also seemed to be close with her, right? Hah! Don’t tell me the other purpose you mentioned earlier was actually to meet that woman….”
As if making a trip into her own world, she didn’t reply when I called her name. I think she was misunderstanding something here but… Well, un, I guess I should leave it at that.
At any rate, like that, the long day was finally over.
