Eventually, this absurd bet actually went through.

Since both of them were representing the Defense Corps, they couldn’t just fight each other head-on, so they decided to pick a target and compete in a duel to test their exorcism skills.

“The first one to bring down that wild goose wins. Direct attacks against each other are forbidden, but interference is allowed as long as it doesn’t cause any harm. Do we have a deal?”

“Sure.”

On their side, Baek Ji-woon naturally stepped up as the player, and the problem was on our side.

“You do it.”

“Why?”

“It’s a good match.”

At my words, Cheong Juhwa showed signs of nervousness, but she agreed.

“. . .Well, I didn’t like them from the start anyway.”

Since I had made the bet with Cheong Ji-yeon in the first place, I couldn’t participate myself.

“So, how long do you think it’ll take?”

At that question, Cheong Ji-yeon smiled meaningfully and said to me,

“3 minutes.”

No matter what country you’re from, you can’t help but be surprised by that statement. It doesn’t make sense. It was an incredibly bold assessment.

Considering that it was a serious statement coming from someone who was about to reach the 1st-grade, it was even more impressive.

“Do you think that’s possible?”

“Don’t you know better than me?”

To that, I replied with a smile of admiration.

“You have a keen eye.”

“There are plenty of fools who can’t see it.”

However, she was wrong. Unfortunately, she missed the correct answer by a hair.

“It won’t even take 3 minutes.”

“Are you serious?”

“It’ll be over with the first move.”

“. . .Huh.”

Before they knew it, the two of them faced each other, and as Baek Tae-gang sent a wild goose flying into the sky, he threw a talisman.

“The moment all the talismans are burnt, the match begins.”

Fwoosh.

Fwoosh.

Just like that, all the talismans were burnt.

The moment I blinked, the match had already begun.

“Demon Soul Cage!”

Boom!

Just like when he attacked me earlier, Baek Ji-woon must also be an exorcist who mainly deals with curses and black magic.

The black stems that extended from the thrown talisman wrapped around the wild goose like a prison, completely blocking Cheong Juhwa’s view.

“She may be talented, but she’s still just a student.”

Baek Ji-woon sneered at Cheong Juhwa and tried to finish her off.

However, at that moment, Cheong Juhwa looked at Baek Tae-gang, who was acting as the referee, and spoke softly.

“Aren’t you going to make a judgment?”

“. . . . . .”

It was a sudden remark, but Baek Tae-gang’s expression darkened. He clicked his tongue and gave a short reply.

“. . .We lost.”

“Excuse me? What do you mean?”

Baek Ji-woon asked in confusion, but Baek Tae-gang just frowned.

“. . .You idiot. Look at the target carefully.”

Fwoosh.

Crash.

At Baek Tae-gang’s gesture, the cage created by Baek Ji-woon was shattered. What was revealed was a wild goose with its wings already broken and hanging limply.

“Tch. This is ridiculous. . .! How the hell did you do that?!”

“I just shot it as soon as the match started.”

In fact, it wasn’t anything particularly strange. Just look at the battle on Yeongwol Island.

Even Sophia, who was called the next generation’s most promising prospect, allowed Cheong Juhwa’s preemptive strike without even thinking about defending herself.

And after the test, all the teachers were amazed by Cheong Juhwa’s spellcasting speed.

The Baek Ji-woon in front of him may be a talented 3rd-grade exorcist, but no matter how good he is, he’s still lower in level than the academy teachers.

If they were to fight head-on, it would be a different story, but in a simple preemptive strike battle, there was no way Cheong Juhwa would lose.

Perhaps Cheong Ji-yeon had also noticed Cheong Juhwa’s extraordinary spellcasting speed during her time in the Defense Corps.

That’s why she must have been confident that she would win and even made a bet. It was simple.

“Um. . . Is it over now?”

Cheong Juhwa, who had decided the match in an instant, asked awkwardly, looking at us.

Baek Tae-gang looked at Cheong Ji-yeon in disbelief.

“. . .Did you know this would happen?”

“Well, you never know until you try.”

Baek Tae-gang clicked his tongue and, with an inexplicable sneer, took out a pure white stake and threw it at Cheong Ji-yeon.

Whoosh!

Thud.

And then he walked away, leaving behind a meaningful last remark.

“. . .This won’t end here.”

“If anything, we’re the ones who are pissed.”
