I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 27.2

Bi-hyeong felt a sense of excitement along with the panic.

He no longer cared about Geusdae, who was sealed on the island. Finally, he caught a glimpse of the next level that he had only faintly seen from an unexpected place.

「𝙏𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙜𝙪𝙮 𝙞𝙨 𝙖 𝙩𝙝𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙤 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙣. 𝙒𝙚 𝙣𝙚𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙤 𝙜𝙚𝙩 𝙗𝙖𝙘𝙠 𝙞𝙣 𝙖 𝙝𝙪𝙧𝙧𝙮.」

This was completely unexpected information.

He had to pass this news on to his colleagues. He was a being who could influence their great cause.

“. . .It’s okay to be happy. Heaven has helped us.”

Leaving the last words to Yoo Ha-on and her party, Bi-hyeong unfolded the prepared ritual. Then, his body was engulfed in a fog and disappeared without a sound.

Whoosh.

The unique teleportation ritual of Xiao Chen, a fellow member and one of the sorcerers belonging to Yahwak. It was something he had prepared in advance in order to escape from the island.

Bi-hyeong, who eventually succeeded in escaping to an unknown small island near Yeongwol Island, organized his complicated thoughts and prepared himself.

Originally, at this point, he would have safely hidden his body and the incident would have been over.

However.

“As expected, there is nothing wrong with the words of the Ancestor.”

“What!”

There was a guest waiting for Bi-hyeong in that place.

“Thanks to that, I was able to catch the bug that had been bothering me. Isn’t that right?”

Bi-hyeong also knew who his opponent was. Cheong So-ha, a first-class exorcist and one of the two major forces of the Cheong family, a powerhouse in Korea.

「. . .𝙃𝙤𝙬 𝙙𝙞𝙙 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙠𝙣𝙤𝙬?」

Someone was completely controlling him. There was only one person who came to mind right away.

「𝙄𝙨 𝙞𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙜𝙪𝙮 𝙤𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙞𝙨𝙡𝙖𝙣𝙙!」

She was a man with that much karma in her soul. There’s no doubt that she’s an unimaginable big shot. If so, it wouldn’t be strange for her to have noticed his scheme long ago.

Clang.

A sword was drawn at Cheong So-ha’s hand.

Bi-hyeong felt a life-threatening crisis and urgently accelerated his thinking.

「𝙄 𝙘𝙖𝙣 𝙣𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧 𝙬𝙞𝙣 𝙞𝙛 𝙄 𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙘𝙠 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙚𝙭𝙝𝙖𝙪𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙩𝙚.」

Especially the Blue-White Sword, known as the treasure of the Cheong family, was dangerous.

「. . .𝙄 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙜𝙚𝙩 𝙖𝙬𝙖𝙮.」

Fortunately, Bi-hyeong was known among his Yahwak colleagues for being fast at casting rituals.

If he were to simply escape while holding her back, there would be no problem.

However.

“Unfortunately, I’ve already recited the mantra.”

For a moment, goosebumps ran all over Bi-hyeong’s body.

The Blue-White Sword that Cheong So-ha pulled out, the incantations engraved on its blade were all glowing blue. She had already finished constructing the ritual in advance.

A unique grand sorcery using the Blue-White Sword as a medium. It’s coming.

Bi-hyeong, who sensed death, shouted wickedly.

“. . .You, a dog of a lowly family!”

“Purification Formation.”

At the same time, the entire small island was engulfed in blue light.

🔷🔷🔷🔷🔷🔷

“Is it over?”

Bi-hyeong used the teleportation technique to escape. He’s probably being welcomed by Cheong So-ha on a small island located west of Yeongwol Island by now.

「𝙄𝙛 𝙤𝙣𝙡𝙮 𝙄 𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙧𝙚𝙘𝙚𝙞𝙫𝙚 𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙝𝙚𝙡𝙥 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙖𝙣𝙮 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙨, 𝙄 𝙬𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙𝙣’𝙩 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙨𝙪𝙛𝙛𝙚𝙧 𝙡𝙞𝙠𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨.」

However, Cheong So-ha’s perception of me as 「𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝘼𝙣𝙘𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙧’𝙨 𝙖𝙜𝙚𝙣𝙩」 is a one-sided misunderstanding. The moment that illusion is broken, I will be chopped into pieces beyond recognition and meet my death.

「𝙄𝙩’𝙨 𝙙𝙞𝙛𝙛𝙞𝙘𝙪𝙡𝙩 𝙩𝙤 𝙠𝙚𝙚𝙥 𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙗𝙮 𝙢𝙮 𝙨𝙞𝙙𝙚. 𝙏𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚’𝙨 𝙖 𝙝𝙞𝙜𝙝 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝙨𝙝𝙚’𝙡𝙡 𝙜𝙚𝙩 𝙨𝙪𝙨𝙥𝙞𝙘𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙨.」

That’s why this level of distance was just right.

Like Cheong Haram, it was enough for her to simply lend me her position or help me from a different location like this. At least for the time being, that would be ideal.

Swish.

Before I knew it, my swaying shadow subsided, and most of the energy that had filled my body also disappeared.

Soon, the backlash from Shadow Assimilation’s 2nd phase will come.

“Get inside.”

Whoosh!

I put away the shikigami I had taken out and hid my body in the underground tunnel I had created with Earthbound.

The condition didn’t look so good, but the two teachers were still hanging on.

「𝙄 𝙙𝙚𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙩𝙚𝙡𝙮 𝙧𝙚𝙢𝙚𝙢𝙗𝙚𝙧 𝘽𝙖𝙚𝙠 𝙅𝙞-𝙚𝙪𝙣 𝙙𝙮𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙣𝙘𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙜𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙡 𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙮.」

Choi Do-won survives in the original story, but Baek Ji-eun doesn’t.

In the end, it means that small futures have changed due to my actions.

「𝙄𝙩 𝙢𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩 𝙗𝙚 𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙩𝙪𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙄 𝙩𝙤𝙤𝙠 𝙘𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝘽𝙞-𝙝𝙮𝙚𝙤𝙣𝙜 𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙨𝙪𝙧𝙚.」

Bi-hyeong was also a character who originally escaped from the island and continued to be active for a longer period of time.

However, I chose to finish him off using Cheong So-ha.

「𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙛𝙪𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙚 𝙬𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙜𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙮𝙬𝙖𝙮. 𝙏𝙝𝙚𝙣, 𝙞𝙩’𝙨 𝙗𝙚𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙩𝙤 𝙡𝙚𝙩 𝙞𝙩 𝙛𝙡𝙤𝙬 𝙞𝙣 𝙖 𝙙𝙞𝙧𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙛𝙖𝙫𝙤𝙧𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙢𝙚.」

The first chapter of the story is over.

This is when the story really begins.

The next 2nd chapter that I will face, and even after that. The remaining incidents were piled up like a mountain.

「. . . . . . .」

There’s still a long way to go. But I’m starting to get the hang of it.

「𝙁𝙞𝙧𝙨𝙩, 𝙄 𝙣𝙚𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙤 𝙧𝙚𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙣𝙞𝙨𝙝 𝙢𝙮 𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙠𝙞𝙜𝙖𝙢𝙞.」

I realized through this fight. It was good to create shikigami like Dudooree and Tae Baek-se who had combat power beyond my own abilities, but my current fighting style has many flaws.

I barely made it through this time, but if there was an enemy other than Geusdae and the fight dragged on, I wouldn’t be here right now.

「𝙎𝙝𝙖𝙙𝙤𝙬𝙡𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝙬𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙗𝙚𝙚𝙣 𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙧 𝙞𝙛 𝙄 𝙙𝙞𝙚𝙙 𝙤𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 2𝙣𝙙 𝙥𝙝𝙖𝙨𝙚.」

Rather, the most reliable one was Elder Water Ghost. In other words, I needed to have more ordinary but powerful shikigami at my service.

「𝘼𝙛𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙞𝙣𝙘𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙧, 𝙞𝙩’𝙨 𝙖𝙡𝙢𝙤𝙨𝙩 𝙫𝙖𝙘𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣.」

Thud.

At that time, there will be an opportunity to catch my eye. I thought about what was to come and surrendered myself to the oncoming drowsiness.
