Avoid Yandere Constellation - Chapter 48-1
A few days later.
After William’s hands-on learning experience and lecture.
I stood up from my seat to leave the classroom.
As he was about to exit the room, Eileen approached him with a blush on her face.
“K-Kane, can you be in the same group as me?”
Judging from her expression, she seemed determined, but unfortunately…
“Uhm. Sorry. I decided to solo this time.”
“Ah– I see. I understand…”
Eileen lowered her head with a dejected look on her face.
What’s the big deal? Why is she so disappointed?
Ignoring her expression, Kane left the classroom and headed towards the academy entrance.
But as he was about to step outside…
He turned around at the sound of a familiar voice.
Skaya ran towards him with a bright smile on her face and wrapped her arms around his neck.
Her magnificent chest pressed against his side.
Hmm, it’s so soft. This is…
As I savor the softness for a second.
“Hey, you don’t have a partner to group with, right? I’ll do it with you, especially since I’m your senior.”
She suggested to group with her, with a face turning red like a radish, even though it didn’t suit her personality.
“I’m sorry, but I’ll do it alone this time.”
Skaya also made a disappointed expression like Eileen did at my firm answer.
Hmm, Eileen’s reaction was expected, but why is Skaya doing this?
No way… does she not have a friend to group with?
Come to think of it, I haven’t seen her working with anyone else.
I just assumed she worked with someone for the last assessment.
Now that I think about it, she’s just like a loner like me…
Yeah, that’s why she and I are childhood friends.
Feeling a sense of camaraderie for some reason, I patted her on the shoulder.
Skaya blinked at me when she saw my eyes.
“What’s wrong? Why are you looking at me with such a sad expression?”
“It’s nothing. I can look like that sometimes.”
“Hmm, what’s wrong? Are you feeling down?”
“You’re misunderstanding. Anyway, Skaya, if you don’t have anyone to work with, I heard Eileen is looking for a partner.”
After the incident with the performance evaluation, the two of them had become somewhat closer, so it wouldn’t be too awkward for them to work together.
As I finished speaking, she squinted her eyes at me.
“…. Are you misunderstanding something?”
“Why would I be?”
“No, I think you are.”
“I’m not. Anyway, I’m leaving now.”
With those words, I turned and walked away from Skaya’s stubbornly pouting face and toward the mansion
As soon as I arrived at the mansion, I called Kersey and Riche and explained to them about the field experience.
“I see. So the young master has chosen us?”
“Uh… is that so?”
“Yes, that’s right.”
In response to my question, Riche nodded her head eagerly.
Well, it’s not entirely wrong to say that I’ll be with them instead of rejecting the offer from Eileen and Scaya.
“Master, have you thought about where we should go?”
Kersey looked at me with a curious gaze.
In response to her question, I nodded my head and answered.
“Yeah. We’re going to the Adventurers’ Guild.”
The next day.
We headed to the Adventurer’s Guild in Capital City.
It wasn’t far from the David Mansion, so we arrived quickly.
Hmm, as expected, the Adventurer’s Guild in Capital is on a different level.
I thought the guild in the David Territory was quite big, but when I see the building in front of me, that thought disappears.
But it feels more like an association building that would appear in a web novel than an Adventurer’s Guild.
It’s a fact that the sense of intimidation is no joke, but the building is so high that it doesn’t feel like an Adventurer’s Guild at all.
Well, it’s true that it’s appropriate to efficiently use the land, but… ugh.
It feels weird.
I didn’t feel it much when I saw it in the game.
Anyway, there’s no point in just standing here, so we went into the building.
“Oh! Master! There are so many flashy people!!”
“Yeah, I know. Be quiet. It’s embarrassing.”
Kersey looks around at the adventurers with twinkling eyes.
I feel embarrassed.
For some reason, my face is getting hot.
I’m sure Riche feels the same way; her face is also similarly red.
But it’s natural for her to react like that.
After her village was destroyed by the cult, she lived in a slum.
And just like that, she lived rolling around in slum for about year until I took her, and since than she has been training with Riche every day to become stronger
Since she mostly stayed in the mansion, except for occasionally going to a cafe or playing on weekends.
Thinking about her past makes me feel weak, but I don’t like being embarrassed, so I gave her a fist on top of her head to erase my embarrassment.
Kersey, who received my fist, screamed strangely and shed tears.
“That’s enough. Let’s go. Everyone is staring at us.”
“Uh… okay. Master.”
With those words, we moved our feet to the reception desk.
The receptionist exuded a businesslike feeling and gave a mechanical smile.
“What brings you here, sir?”
“I came because of the Royal Academy field trip.”
“Ah! May I have your name, please?”
“My name is David von Kane.”
As I confidently stated my name, the employee in front of me and the adventurers around us looked at us.
Huh? What’s going on? S**t. It’s not some obvious cliche, is it?
For some reason, I felt like something annoying was going to happen.
Sigh. Let’s get out of here quickly.
“Can I get a temporary adventurer license right now?”
“Ah, yes. It’s possible. It’ll be two silver coins. Is that okay?”
“Yes, I’ll give it to you now.”
I took out a silver coin from my pocket and handed it to the employee.
The employee received the Silver. I handed it over, wrote something down, and handed me something.
“Here you go. The duration is set until the end of the field experience program. If you complete a request with it, the Adventurer Guild will contact the Academy separately.”
“Yes, I understand. Thank you.”
Upon hearing the words “Thank you” from me, the receptionist looked a little surprised.
It’s been a while since I’ve seen that expression.
