I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 10.2

Chapter 10.2

Cheong Juhwa couldn’t even argue back. She knew better than anyone the influence that the title of direct bloodline and rising star of the Cheong family held.

Cheong Haram, who had been looking at Cheong Juhwa with a bitter face, glanced around and said,

“Just in case, is there anyone who wants to pair up with her?”

No one could answer. The second-year students, who knew her usual behavior, were all busy avoiding Cheong Haram’s gaze.

Simply being in the same grade wasn’t enough to stand up to her; she was on a completely different level.

Just as Cheong Haram smiled in satisfaction, the teacher in charge of the class finally entered the lecture hall. He was a middle-aged man in a plain suit, someone I didn’t recognize.

“My apologies for being late due to a meeting. Let’s start the class right away.”

「𝙎𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩.」

As a faculty member, his level was higher than that of the students nearby, but his overall ability was just average. He was the type who focused on his role as a teacher rather than being a field agent.

「𝙃𝙚’𝙨 𝙣𝙤 𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙘𝙝 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙧𝙤𝙡𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝘾𝙝𝙚𝙤𝙣𝙜 𝙃𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙢.」

Cheong Haram seemed to realize this as well and smiled faintly. From this point on, the rest was obvious.

“Hmm?”

Yoon Ilrok, who was puzzled by the strange atmosphere in the lecture hall, was interrupted by Cheong Haram.

“Teacher, is there a problem?”

“Oh, no, it’s just. . . . . . .”

Yoon Ilrok made a face as if he had made a mistake.

Perhaps he had activated his Crisis Perception trait and grasped the general situation.

Yoon Ilrok glanced at Cheong Juhwa, who had her head bowed deeply, and chose to look away.

“Let’s proceed with the class.”

Cheong Haram smiled in satisfaction, while Cheong Juhwa, who realized the bleak future that awaited her, bit her lip tightly.

“In this class, we will learn about the positive. . . . . . through exchanges between students of different grades.”

Yoon Ilrok briefly explained the outline of the class. After that, the formation of teams began immediately.

“. . . . . .So, I hope you will find a partner who can help you grow through meaningful conversations. You will have 30 minutes to do so.”

As soon as he finished speaking, the students began to move busily.

Some had already decided on their partners, while others were checking each other’s backgrounds and specialties, looking for someone they liked.

However, no one approached Cheong Juhwa.

No one even dared to look at her.

Cheong Haram, who was smiling, said to Cheong Juhwa, who looked desperate,

“There’s no place for you here.”

“. . . . . . .”

“So, get out of the academy.”

Cheong Juhwa couldn’t even lift her head, but Cheong Haram seemed to think it wasn’t enough and tried to open her mouth again.

And I slowly began to walk towards the two of them.

Thud.

Thud.

At first, my footsteps were drowned out by the sound of conversation.

However, as I continued, the surroundings gradually grew quiet, and one by one, people’s gazes began to focus on me.

Murmur. Murmur.

『Hey, who’s that kid? Didn’t he hear what she said just now?』

『It’s Han Kang-yoon. Is he really going to. . . . . . .』

『Why is he doing that? Is he crazy?』

The whispers buzzed in my ears, but I didn’t care about them. After all, I had been hearing the same things over and over again since the entrance ceremony a week ago.

Thud. Thud.

With each step I took, tension filled the lecture hall. Some people gulped so loudly that it was audible, while others turned their heads and checked the situation with sidelong glances.

Thud.

Finally, when the silence had settled and only the sound of my footsteps echoed, I was able to reach the two of them.

“. . .I’m sorry, but aren’t you allowed to form teams with second-year students?”

Cheong Haram approached me with a grin. Of course, she didn’t mean it literally. It was a kind of threat and warning, telling me that this was my last chance to turn back before things got out of hand.

Naturally, I had a prepared response to that.

I smiled back at Cheong Haram and calmly replied,

“I know.”

That was the moment when everyone in the lecture hall completely froze.
