I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 20.2

Just as I was trying to recall the hazy memories, Kwak Eun-jin, our homeroom teacher and the supervisor of the exam, began to explain the contents of the exam that would unfold.

“The first exam is a class competition. First of all, everyone, look at this.”

When Kwak Eun-jin took something out of her arms and spread it on the ground, a small boundary was spread from there.

There were four in total. Inside the boundary, a small ore floating in the air was emitting its presence.

“To put it simply, this boundary stone is the score of Class D, 2nd year.”

“Do you mean we have to protect that?”

“Exactly. At the same time, you must take points away from other classes. The method is simple. Find the camp of another class somewhere and destroy the ore.”

“. . .Um.”

The students all looked embarrassed. It was nothing strange. In fact, we were the weakest here.

“There is no need to be so discouraged. The upper classes are given demerits, while the lower classes, such as you, are given merits.”

“. . .What is that?”

“The number of ores given to your camp is four in total. Other teams must destroy all of them in order to take away points.”

“What about the upper class?”

“Class A has one, Class B has two, and Class C has three. The higher you go, the less mistakes are allowed.”

It was definitely not a bad rule. In the end, we could take away Class A’s points if we could somehow destroy just one ore.

As the atmosphere of understanding was formed, Kwak Eun-jin began to give us additional explanations.

“Everyone must have received a dog tag before boarding the island. If you receive damage above the reference value, the protective spell and the binding spell will be deployed at the same time. Then, the person concerned is out there.”

“Then how is the score judged?”

“The class’s common score is 100 points. When you destroy another class’s ore, 50 points are added to the common score. In addition, 30 points for individual survival score. 10 points each time you incapacitate someone else. Finally, an additional 50 points are awarded to the student who directly destroys the ore.”

In other words, even if we just defend our ore or survive, we get points, but if we knock out other students or destroy other classes’ ore, we get additional points.

“Personnel allocation will be important.”

“Should we do it stably?”

“We also need to decide on the night watch schedule.”

The students began to actively exchange opinions and think about countermeasures.

But I knew.

This exam is not the kind that can be overcome with such a table theory.

Click.

“It’s time. The exam starts now. The exam will not end until the last one class remains or 48 hours have passed.”

The exam has begun. I said to the students who were huddled together and chatting.

“Prepare for battle.”

“. . .Why?”

The answer to that question was not me, but the male student who had been enthusiastic about terrain reconnaissance earlier.

“Ah! Come to think of it, Class B kids from the first year were right next door.”

“Huh? Really? Then. . . . . . .”

Everyone could easily guess what would follow.

“Aren’t they coming as soon as they start?”

As soon as those words were finished, one of the Class D students who had been frozen was pierced by something.

Puck!

“Ugh!”

Whoo-hoo!

The dog tag turned red, and the binding spell and protective spell unfolded immediately. It was a judgment of inability to fight with just one blow.

「𝙄𝙩’𝙨 𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚.」

Pushing through the bushes, a large number of students appeared. Class B, 1st year. Judging by the number, it seemed that more than half of the class participated in the attack.

“Prepare for battle!”

Jung Han-sol, who is somewhat of a leader in Class D, 2nd year, pulled together the students’ mentality.

Still, since he didn’t just spend a year in form, the 2nd year also quickly organized and began to respond.

“These guys are out of order?”

“This is really crazy. It wasn’t like this when we were.”

However, Class B, 1st year, laughed as if it were funny.

“Where is the seniority in the exam?”

“How many are there? Let’s get a lot of points.”

While such a bloody war of nerves was taking place, I slipped back and quickly hid myself.

「𝙄𝙨 𝘾𝙝𝙚𝙤𝙣𝙜 𝙅𝙪𝙝𝙬𝙖 𝙤𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙙𝙚𝙛𝙚𝙣𝙨𝙞𝙫𝙚 𝙨𝙞𝙙𝙚?」

More people than I thought were flocking to the attack.

Then I can execute the plan I’ve thought about enough.

Tadak.

As soon as I got out of everyone’s sight, I ran straight to the Class B camp, 1st year, which I had checked earlier.

「𝘽𝙡𝙖𝙘𝙠 𝙗𝙞𝙧𝙙.」

At the same time, I sent Black birdhovering around to the opponent’s camp and shared its field of vision.

Sure enough, Cheong Juhwa was there.

She was guarding the base camp with a sullen face.

I arrived there alone and confidently revealed myself.

“What?”

“Who are you?”

“Are you a 2nd year senior? Didn’t you come from Class D?”

The 1st year students were in a panic. That’s because a counterattack came from the place where the attacking team raided in an instant.

“Prepare for battle!”

All the 1st year students remaining in the base camp went into alert. However, as there was no additional reinforcement, they began to put question marks over their heads one by one.

“Why isn’t anyone coming?”

“I just checked with the detection spell, but there’s no sign of anyone other than that person around.”

“You came alone? Are you crazy?”

The students were so surprised that they didn’t even think about attacking.

Since it was dangerous to drag out time, I said to Cheong Juhwa, who was also wondering.

“I want to form an alliance.”

“Huh. . . . . . . . I want to help you because I am grateful, but I need points to get promoted.”

That’s right. So she is cooperating with her reluctant colleagues, albeit forcibly.

But I knew the rules of this exam better than anyone else.

“The kids around you, 10 points each time you catch them.”

「𝙊𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙨」 incapacitated in combat, plus 10 points.

It seemed like a big deal in a class competition, but if you look closely at the rules, there were definitely hints here and there.

“Is that so. . . . . . ?”

I am sure of it. In the original work, Baek Eun-seo also gained points through team kills.

I turned my head and asked the elderly homeroom teacher of Class B, 1st year.

“Isn’t that right?”

“. . .That’s right.”

“How can that be?”

Of course, the students’ reaction was fierce. The homeroom teacher sighed and shouted at them.

“I must have told you that it’s an environment that is no different from actual combat. Who can say for sure that a colleague from just a moment ago will not become your enemy?”

It is a world where there are spells that control opponents or yokai with such abilities. Similar things could happen all the time.

Only then did the Class B students, who realized the situation, begin to look at Cheong Juhwa’s expression.

Since Cheong Haram’s check was gone, she had no qualms about showing her skills.

No one here didn’t know that her skill was literally one against a thousand, even though she hadn’t gone up to Class A yet.

“. . .I think it’s real.”

Cheong Juhwa came and stood next to me with a bright face as if she was excited about the current situation. There was a lot of light in his eyes.

“Then, do you think you can break my ore?”

“I’ll lose 100 points, but I can get 50 points.”

“Then I’ll break the ore. I’ll fill the rest with those guys. Well.”

In short, it means betrayal. At those words, everyone looked at Cheong Juhwa with a blank face.

「𝘿𝙤𝙣𝙚.」

It was the moment when the whole situation was completely reversed.
