When the guild leader heard that I was resigning, he incessantly tried to persuade me not to.
It’s been a long time since I last saw him so desperate, so it felt quite fresh.
But well, I understand his feelings.
Being a guild receptionist is indeed a popular job.
If it’s to replace a lost member, one day will be enough.
Of course, the experimental part will take some time, and they will need training…….
Even to me, who is of the same sex, the guild receptionists are all beauties.
I’m not trying to brag, but I’m proud that my appearance can be seen like that.
This isn’t the guild leader’s tastes or anything like that.
Its aim is to increase the motivation of the adventurers and to reduce withdrawal rates.
If the beautiful receptionists could properly carry out more of their work, then naturally the adventurers will favour and stick to them..
If that happens, the number of adventurers quitting the guild will be drastically reduced, and they’ll produce splendid results in order to impress the receptionists.
I was also that way when I was working in the guild, and because of that, quite a lot of adventurers favoured me.
I don’t want to think about them too much, but Lyle and Hyold who caused problems before this were also among those who did.
It’s impossible for the guild to simply say 「Oh, I see」 and let a receptionist who is tied to so many adventurers resign.
Even if I am an exclusive receptionist, I am enrolled in the guild, and when the exclusive adventurer isn’t here I receive the other adventurers normally.
However, if I were to quit, that would all end.
If I were to quit, numerous adventurers’ motivation and their actions from now on will probably be affected.
I feel sorry for them, but I also have my own life to live.
No matter what, it’s important to follow through on the things that I’ve decided on. For that reason, I won’t hesitate.
……Thus, I have a trump card. A trump card that will render the guild leader speechless and agree.
「Aisha, reconsider it. A lot of them adore you. Think about those guys!!」
「I am happy that they adore me, but either way, I’m going to be married, you know?
According to previous cases, there’s a sharp decline in a receptionist’s popularity after they marry, am I right?
……Also, for the sake of starting a Clan, Hime-sama has already left for the capital.
If I were to remain in the guild, inevitably, I wouldn’t be able to become a member of that Clan. Because of that, it would probably be difficult for Hime-sama to obtain recognition for it.
You understand what I mean, right? How will guild leader explain that to Hime-sama?
Since I can’t betray Hime-sama, guild leader, please persuade Hime-sama, a member of “royalty”」
My trump card is Hime-sama.
Knowing the actions of royalty and deliberately obstructing them. Although it depends on the details of the situation, the matter this time around probably wouldn’t warrant a punishment.
However, her experience will certainly worsen.
There’s no doubt that the pressure from Hime-sama towards the guild is something which will considerably worsen.
When I was still an adventurer, requests came quite frequently, as if a request from royalty had been received.
Requests which have quite the large reward, at that.
If Hime-sama’s experience becomes bad, such requests will be greatly impacted.
Also, regarding my retirement from the guild, there’s nothing about that written in the guild’s work regulations.
Naturally, the guild leader cannot obstruct my retirement with his power.
Well, the guild leader’s impression of me will worsen with this case…….
When Hime-sama’s name came out, as expected, the guild leader couldn’t pursue anything beyond that and kept silent with a sullen face.
「I am sorry, but this is something I’ve decided on」
I clearly declared it once more when guild leader’s persuasion stopped.
It ended there, with the guild leader crestfallen and dropping his shoulders.
「Aisha-senpai! Is it true that you’re quitting the guild!!!?」
As soon as I showed myself on the floor, my kouhai, the receptionist Mil, said this in a loud voice. (TLN: Floor as in working floor)
Though it wasn’t peak hours, there were still quite a few adventurers in the lobby at this time.
If you shout in here, naturally the contents will reach the ears of the numerous adventurers here.
「……Sigh」(TLN: …is this a legit onomatopoeia)
The person who shouted realised that right after she had done so. The lobby’s noise fell silent, and all the attention was on us. With that, it seems she finally understood what she was guilty of.
I noticed that her expression became visibly pale.
It’s too late to cover our mouths.
This is exactly a case of ‘no use crying over spilt milk’.
It can’t be helped that things have progressed like this…… this place probably won’t be at peace if I don’t give an answer.
「……Umm, it’s been decided that tomorrow, I’ll be making preparations to retire. Incidentally, it’s a resignation on marriage」
「「「「「「「「「「W, What did you sayーーーーー!」」」」」」」」」」
「Really, why are you all so restless! Haven’t I always said to act after observing your surroundings!!」
After that, the guild was in bigger chaos than I expected.
It wasn’t just the adventurers within the hall, but also those who weren’t there rapidly gathered through word of mouth.
It wasn’t simply because of my resignation, but the uproar seemed to have become greater due to me blurting out that I’m getting married.
Because of that, it wasn’t just Mil that was responsible, but so was I, but naturally, I won’t say such a thing to these kids.
If I were to say it, I would do it again without regrets.
The guild leader, who was holding his hand to his stomach as he crouched due to it being more chaotic than he expected, spurred the chaos even more.
……In the end, the uproar lasted for three hours.
There will probably be another uproar tomorrow, as well.
Since there’s no doubt that this matter will spread tonight.
My receptionist duties haven’t ended, and there was only the handing over of my duties. It’ll probably take a few more hours before I exit the guild.
I’m really sorry to my colleagues, but it cannot be helped.
At the very least, I decided to present them with some sweets, and left the guild.
Ah, in the end, even when I was leaving, the guild leader was sitting on a chair as if he had grown senile.
I finished my duties at the guild, and when I returned to the dormitory, I greeted the management oba-san.
She was shocked when we talked about my marriage and resignation from the guild, but in the end, she told me to work hard and handed over memos with cooking recipes that she had written down.
It was sudden, ……the marriage was decided really suddenly, but since I’ve already decided, I’ll work hard to become a good wife.
I’ll continue supporting Myne-kun’s heart, and as the first step, I will use these recipes.
Thanking the management oba-san, I returned to my own room.
Putting my room’s luggage into my storage bag, I moved out.
「I’m back, Myne-kun!」
In the first place, since there wasn’t that much luggage, Aisha-san’s residence change was finished quite quickly.
However, as expected, the time was approaching late night.
Today, I only prepared for sleeping, and I’ll tidy up tomorrow.
Since it’s still before marriage, naturally the beds are separate.
I feel like I heard 「loser」 from somewhere, but this has already been decided.
This way, this chaotic day came to an end.
Thank you very much for always reading.
Impressions and evaluations left will become my encouragement.
Please treat me well.
