I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 33.2

Let me summarize the current situation.

The main forces of the nearby Defense Corps have gathered to subjugate the Red Oni, and we, the reserve forces, are forming a secondary encirclement around a large area centered on that location.

In other words, it wouldn’t be strange if the situation was resolved without any problems, as it should have been.

“. . .Don’t worry too much. It’s not a good situation, but it’ll probably be over before we even get a chance to step in.”

Seo Ji-hye made an optimistic observation, thinking that we might be feeling anxious.

But I knew.

Things wouldn’t settle down that easily. Rather, it was clear that it would get worse. It was inevitable that I would feel nervous once the situation actually arose.

「𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙙𝙚𝙢𝙤𝙣 𝙬𝙚’𝙡𝙡 𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙨 𝙧𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝𝙡𝙮 𝘽+ 𝙧𝙖𝙣𝙠.」

Honestly, it’s an overwhelmingly powerful opponent for those who haven’t even become official exorcists.

However, we’re not just ordinary academy students. We also know the opponent in advance and have made thorough preparations.

We’ll definitely be able to carry out the plan.

Ting.

Whir!

Whir!

“No, why in this situation. . .”

As soon as the thought was over, emergency sirens blared from all over the place.

The citizens had already evacuated for the most part due to the earlier warning broadcast, but it was definitely not a welcome timing.

I hurriedly asked Seo Ji-hye.

“Where is it?”

“It’s nearby, but it’s an area where other people are. It’ll probably be resolved soon. . .”

Kwang!

Boom!

Blaze!

“W-What?”

It was an intense flame. Even at a glance, it wasn’t just an ordinary monster. Seo Ji-hye’s face hardened.

At the same time, Cheong Juhwa spoke.

“I don’t know, but I don’t think it’ll be resolved soon.”

She was right. It was clear that no ordinary exorcist would be able to stop it.

“Should we go help?”

Seo Ji-hye hesitated at my words, then took out the communicator that was attached to her waist.

Swish.

Swish.

“Dammit. Why is this dead again?”

Seo Ji-hye sighed as she shook the communicator up and down, then spoke to me and Cheong Juhwa.

“. . .Follow me closely.”

Like that, we followed Seo Ji-hye for about 5 minutes.

Flames and smoke were overflowing everywhere, and the intensity increased as we got closer to the area.

Boom!

Roar!

Blaze!

“Damn it. . .”

“Senior!”

I don’t know how long we ran, but from the corner of my eye, I could see a man walking towards us with his shoulders slumped.

Choi Young-ho, a 3rd rank exorcist from the same Cheongdam 2nd Defense Corps.

“Whew, Ji-hye?”

“Are you okay? What’s going on?”

Choi Young-ho, who had been grimacing in pain for a moment, sat down on the floor and spoke.

“That thing, it’s at least B-rank. My defensive spell was destroyed with just one attack.”

“Should we call for backup?”

“. . .Didn’t you get a message? The other side is in even more chaos right now. We probably won’t get backup right away.”

“What? Why?”

At that, Choi Young-ho answered with a hardened expression.

“The target broke through the encirclement and escaped. The danger level has already been raised to A+ rank. Its name is Red Oni. It seems that it has already killed seven exorcists.”

“T-That’s impossible.”

If it’s A+, it’s a really high-ranking monster. And such a monster is running wild after breaking through the encirclement.

In short, the situation was already getting out of hand.

“. . . . . . . . . . . .”

In that case, we had to somehow reduce the damage here. The faces of everyone who was there naturally became serious.

“Then how do we stop it?”

“The 3rd Defense Corps members who were nearby are joining forces to confront it. However, all the strong people are gone, so I don’t know if we can win. . .”

Seo Ji-hye, who had been contemplating at those words, immediately took out a bundle of talismans and shouted at us.

“You stay here. Take care of senior.”

Thud.

Like that, Seo Ji-hye jumped into the flames in an instant.

Cheong Juhwa and I exchanged glances with hardened expressions.

“What should we do?”

Cheong Juhwa had a very complicated look in her eyes. She was probably analyzing the danger of the current situation and making an estimate.

I answered Cheong Juhwa without hesitation.

“Let’s go. That’s why we came here.”

“What if I say I don’t want to go?”

“You don’t have to go if you don’t want to.”

At those words, Cheong Juhwa made an unreadable expression.

And after a moment of hesitation, she confided in me for the first time since coming here.

“If you go, you’ll die.”

There was a sense of urgency in her words.

Since Cheong Juhwa had a talent that others couldn’t even imagine, it must have been easy for her to predict the outcome of the battle.

“That unni will die too. Probably all the exorcists there will die.”

That’s why she’s hesitating.

Between her identity as an exorcist and the way she’s been living her life so far.

Cheong Juhwa at the beginning of the story never sacrifices herself for others. She doesn’t go out of her way to face danger.

However, in a corner of her heart, there has always been something like a longing for the exorcist who keeps his duty.

I didn’t have any intention of appealing to her emotions, but it was a good chance to build up goodwill.

I looked at Cheong Juhwa and spoke again.
