I managed to escape from the Brad family’s mansion. However, as long as I’m on this island, I’m still within their territory. Even though it will take some time, I need to gather as much information about this world as possible and find a way off this island.
So, I tried to gather information in the city that the Brad family’s mansion was in and I found out that there was only one option for me to escape this island. I need to get on a ship from Gran Island and leave to the nearby continent.
However, they will not let just anyone board these ships. Only nobles or merchants that have received the proper permissions can board a ship. It seems adventurers that are rank D or higher can also board the ship.
In other words, I need to become an adventurer or merchant to escape this island. Of course, I chose to become an adventurer.
There are several reasons for this. The biggest one being, as an adventurer, I will be able to acquire the maximum amount of SP. If I do my best I’m sure I can escape from this island.
…….As long as I don’t encounter anymore Yanderes.
Really, that’s just another reason for me to become an adventurer. Because of my ‘Feminist’ ability, I can’t defend myself if I encounter any Yandere, but if I can find a party member, they would be able to protect me.
— And that’s why I used some of the gold coins from my item box to hire a coach to take me to the nearest big city. Now, I’m in the Adventurer’s Guild of that city.
There was a reception desk near the front of the building with a request board nearby. Near the back of the room was a bar with many people that looked like adventurers gathered around it.
I also noticed while walking around town that there are many different races in this world. Besides humans, I saw people with fluffy fur and tails walking around town – they must be a part of the beastmen race.
“Welcome. I’ve never seen you before. Is this your first time visiting the Guild?”
A receptionist greeted me. She had long ears and a dignified voice. Is she an elf? Wait, she’s a beautiful onee-san…… A onee-san is a woman.
This receptionist….could she be Yandere?
No, that’s impossible. She’s the face of the Guild. There’s no way someone like that could be Yandere!
— That’s what I would’ve originally thought.
But after my encounter with Rose……
Even if she is a receptionist I can’t rule out the possibility that she’s Yandere.
She has silky blue hair, narrow eyes, and thin brown eyebrows. She looks like an intelligent woman that still has her sanity.
But I can’t determine whether she is or isn’t Yandere based only on her appearance.
I need something that can tell me whether or not she is Yandere…….I looked at her and noticed a nameplate above her large chest.
I am not Yandere
Then, it’s safe to assume she’s not Yandere.
Wait……Why is something like that written down?
“Umm, is something wrong?”
“No, I was just curious about what’s written on your nameplate.”
“Ah, this? This is proof that I’m not Yandere. Yanderes are not allowed to be receptionists at the guilds, but some people still worry unless it is written down.”
“……..Huh, is that so?”
People are worried about whether or not the receptionists are Yanderes? I thought I’d be the only one worried about that, but…..There are other people like me?
Anyway, this is good. I know she isn’t Yandere now.
“Well, I’d like to register as an adventurer.”
“The registration fee will be one silver coin.”
“I understand. Here you go.”
I took one silver coin from my pocket and handed it to the onee-san behind the reception desk — but she grabbed onto my hand instead of the silver.
“Your hand is so delicate. It would be such a waste for you to hurt such a delicate hand being an adventurer. I can take care of your for the rest of your life. So, there’s no need for you to become an adventurer. Just spend the rest of your life with me.”
Kyaaaaa! Wh-Who decided that she wasn’t Yandere!? No matter how you look at this girl she’s Yandere. I can’t even forcefully break her grip on me! This is bad!
“Umm….I’m sorry, but I want to become an adventurer. Can you please finish the paperwork?”
If she still won’t stop I’ll need to get help from the people around me. Fortunately, she said, “That’s too bad,” took the silver, and released my hand.
“Then, I will need to create a plate for you. Can you tell me your name?”
“Ye-Yeah…..My name is Yuz…..Minase.”
If Rose is looking for me I can’t use my first name, so I decided to give my surname instead. Well, even if that weren’t the case, I don’t think I’d feel safe telling this girl my name.
“Minase-kun? It’s a bit different, but it is a nice name. My name is Sylphy. If you ever have any problems, be sure to consult with your onee-san. I’ll be sure to teach you about it in detail.”
She’s just trying to be nice. Maybe she’s being a little too nice, but…..No, I’m just on edge. After all, the other day I had all of my limbs cut off. I shuddered after thinking about that.
“Alright, I’ll need to check your status. Can you place your hand on this crystal for me?”
Sylphy-san brought some kind of tool that was made of crystal out from under the counter and placed it on the desk.
“This thing will allow you to see everything in my status?”
That can’t happen. If she sees my overall ability score is over 100,00 I’m sure that would cause a commotion. On top of that, if she were to see the titles ‘A Traveller From Another World,’ ‘Received Goddess Medea’s Love,’ or the fact that I have the ‘Immortality,’ skill……
“Fufu~, you don’t need to be worried. It will only check for dangerous titles or any skills related to crime. I won’t be able to see anything else.”
“I see. Then….”
I pressed my palm against the crystal. Immediately after, the crystal was dyed pure black and there were people panicking throughout the Guild……What happened!?
“Hey, look at that!”
“No way. The crystal is completely black. What has that person done!?”
The adventurers around us started shouting. I felt like I might be sick, but I don’t know what to do!
From somewhere behind the reception desk a good looking middle aged man appeared.
“Oh, Master. There’s nothing going on.”
“If there’s nothing going on, why is the crystal completely black!? What kind of terrible criminal are you!?”
“Please wait! I haven’t committed any crimes!”
“That’s what every criminal says! Any adventurers that can catch this man will be pai — gah!?”
Just as he was about to instruct the surrounding adventurers to catch me, Sylphy-san hit him across the face with a large stack of papers.
“I won’t forgive you if you try to hurt Minase-kun!”
“…..Hah? S-Sylphy, what are you saying? This man is a dangerous criminal.”
“You’re wrong. Listen to what I’ve been saying. Or, maybe you can’t hear? If that’s the case, maybe I should open another hole in your head?”
With a smiling face, this beautiful onee-san said some terrifying words. I could see the face of the middle-aged man, that appears to be the Guild Master, begin to twitch.
“W-What’s wrong, Sylphy? You seem different than usual….”
“I’m fine. Please look at the results of the test.”
“What part of his status could cause the crystal to turn black? Umm, what…..’To Be Loved to Death By Yanderes’ and it’s rank SSS!?”
The crowd once again erupted; this time it was even louder than before.
Umm…..what is going on? People with SSS rank skills are that amazing!? Are they thinking I’ll become famous and want to become friends with me now? Or that’s what I thought….
“O-Oi, did you hear that? He has the skill ‘To Be Loved to Death By Yanderes.’”
“Yeah, it’s rank SSS as well. It’s a disaster class skill!”
“That’s terrible……we better stay away from him.”
…..I don’t know why I expected anything else.
And, as I expected, the surrounding women left — and shortly after, so did the men. Then, the only people left near me were the Guild Master and Sylphy.
“Sylphy, please leave as well. I will take charge of this man.”
“Eh, I don’t want to. Minase-kun came to me, so I should be the one in charge of him. Rather, from now on, I belong only to Minase-kun.”
“—Are you an idiot!? Impossible, did he already manage to awaken the Yandere attribute in you!? Even if it is a disaster class SSS ranked skill, it shouldn’t have as strong of an effect during the daytime!”
What does he mean by that? Is he saying that at night that skill becomes even more effective — I was never told anything like that.
“Oi, did you hear that just now? Is Sylphy-san really a Yandere now?”
“Are you serious!? I thought she was the only one that I was certain wasn’t Yandere!”
“No, I guess she was awakened by that guy’s skill.”
“Still, that means she had the potential to be Yandere!”
Suddenly, the people in the Guild started talking about Sylphy. No matter how you look at it, this is my fault.
“We can’t keep talking about this here. You, and you as well Sylphy come with me to the back room.”
I couldn’t say no to him and followed him to the back room. My goal was to remain inconspicuous, but I managed to fail that spectacularly…..Well, I didn’t expect to fail in this way.
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.
