I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 40.2

The spacious grounds outside the facility were where we would first encounter the enemy.

“. . . Do you think it’ll go well?”

“Even if things go wrong, we have to make it work somehow.”

I went outside with Seo Ji-an and prepared for battle. I could see two people approaching quickly from the other side.

“How many enemies are there?”

“. . . Six.”

As I thought, there were more people than we had heard. I clicked my tongue lightly.

“But except for the ones we knew about beforehand, they all seem to be pretty weak.”

That was the only saving grace. To be honest, if they were 3rd-grade or lower, they wouldn’t be much of a challenge.

I stared at the intense aura coming from afar and signaled for the three of them to fall back.

“Huh. I’ve heard stories, but are you really capable of doing something like that?”

Lee Jung-il asked, and I nodded without hesitation.

“. . . Let’s believe in him. Miss has never been wrong about this sort of thing.”

And I took out the Blue Heart Jade that was hanging around my neck and placed it in the center of the magic circle that I had prepared in advance.

“Then, let’s begin.”

Whooong.

Just like Bi-hyeong before, reviving a yokai requires a lot of energy.

Even though it was split in two, Gang Cheol-i was still a powerful yokai. To give it form, I had to offer a significant amount of energy as a sacrifice.

「𝙉𝙤𝙧𝙢𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮, 𝙄 𝙬𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙𝙣’𝙩 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙗𝙚𝙚𝙣 𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙙𝙤 𝙞𝙩 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙢𝙮 𝙤𝙬𝙣 𝙥𝙤𝙬𝙚𝙧.」

However, if there was no other way, I wouldn’t have come up with this plan in the first place.

In fact, I had already prepared the sacrifice needed to revive Gang Cheol-i.

「𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙥𝙤𝙬𝙚𝙧 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙔𝙚𝙤𝙪𝙞𝙟𝙪 𝙛𝙧𝙖𝙜𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙖𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙙 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝘽𝙡𝙪𝙚 𝙃𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙩 𝙅𝙖𝙙𝙚.」

Gang Cheol-i is an Imoogi that failed to become a dragon.

And it always seethes with anger and desires power.

For such a Gang Cheol-i, the power contained in the Yeouiju fragment, the source of dragons, is an excellent sacrifice.

「𝙔𝙚𝙤𝙪𝙞𝙟𝙪 𝙖𝙗𝙨𝙤𝙧𝙗𝙨 𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙖𝙡 𝙚𝙣𝙚𝙧𝙜𝙮 𝙟𝙪𝙨𝙩 𝙗𝙮 𝙚𝙭𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜.」

Because of that, the Blue Heart Jade also contained a vast amount of power within it.

I will now use part of that power to revive Gang Cheol-i and have it fight our enemies.

Whooong.

A blue light continuously emanated from the Blue Heart Jade placed on the magic circle, and at the same time, the enemy finally revealed themselves.

Thud.

“There are two faces that aren’t in the report.”

The enemy was indeed six people, just as Yoo Ah-in had confirmed.

Conspicuous among them were a large man, a sharp-featured woman, and someone who was wrapped tightly in something that was jangling.

“The woman over there is the top priority target.”

“Haha, how stupid. Throwing away your life for a blood relative who can’t even wake up.”

Yoo Ah-in stepped forward to respond to the woman’s malicious taunt.

“I’m sorry, but that’s not going to happen. The ones who will be buried here today are you guys.”

“What? Don’t you realize the situation you’re in?”

The woman didn’t seem to think that they would lose.

She wasn’t wrong. In terms of sheer numbers, they had almost twice the forces we did.

However, that was about to change.

“Enough chitchat. Let’s finish this quickly and go back.”

As soon as one of the enemies finished speaking, heat suddenly erupted from the ground, and the earth began to tremble as if an earthquake had struck.

Rumble.

Rumble rumble.

“What the!”

The enemies hurriedly moved away from their spots, and only the masked man at the very back pointed at me.

“It’s him.”

“. . . . . . .”

It was sooner than I thought I’d be discovered, but I didn’t care.

The ritual was already complete, having gone through its final stage just a moment ago.

“Revival of the Half-Dead.”

Whooosh.

Zzzzaaaap!

With the completion of the ritual. The soul of Gang Cheol-i, which had been contained in the Blue Heart Jade, was sucked into the ground.

At the same time, the ground split open, and a raging fire began to erupt from within.

Zzzzaaaap!

Whoosh!

“Dammit! What the hell did those bastards summon?”

The suffocating aura filled the air. And from the gap in the cracked ground, a giant foot covered in scales rose up.

Roar!

Thud.

Gang Cheol-i.

Although it was only half-formed, it was a splendid revival of a yokai that had almost reached the legendary existence of a dragon.

“. . . . . . .”

The enemies were visibly flustered by the sight of Gang Cheol-i, which didn’t seem ordinary at all.

However, they were all people who had survived countless battles, and they quickly regrouped and began to act according to the instructions of the man who seemed to be their leader.

“Four of you take care of those guys here, and two of you go inside the building and secure the second target. Any objections?”

“Tch. I guess that’s for the best.”

The enemies split into two groups in an instant, and we had no choice but to divide our forces as well.

“I’ll go with Han Kang-yoon to guard the basement.”

Seo Ji-an’s words made sense, so I nodded without hesitation.

“Are you sure? Those enemies are no pushovers.”

“If there are only two of them, we can at least stall them.”

And so, we split up with the other two and began to pursue the enemies heading into the building. Seo Ji-an, who was running quickly, asked me with a worried expression.

“. . . Are you okay?”

“I’m fine.”

I glanced back and saw that a fierce battle was already taking place.

Gang Cheol-i, who had been attacked as soon as it was revived, started rampaging, spewing fire in all directions, and most of the enemies were responding to it.

Up to this point, things were going according to plan.

Thud.

“Hey, stop right there.”

Seo Ji-an shouted at the two people who were just about to destroy the security device at the entrance of the building.

The enemies gave up on breaking in with surprised expressions and slowly approached us.

“What? Are you two little brats really going to take us on?”

“The top priority target came to us herself. This saves us the trouble.”

The sharp-featured woman and the large man who had been at the forefront earlier.

I quickly checked their information with my emotion ability.

「𝙎𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩.」

The woman named Choi Eun-jin is a 3rd-grade. And Wang Wei is undoubtedly a 2nd-grader.

「𝙏𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙨 𝙩𝙧𝙞𝙘𝙠𝙮.」

To be honest, I think I could beat Choi Eun-jin one-on-one. But not Wang Wei.

His ability scores are high, and his traits are also powerful. He’s not an opponent that I can beat in a head-on fight with my current abilities.

Wang Wei glanced at me and suddenly raised his hand to form an attack spell.

“He’s not the target. I’ll take care of him.”

His spellcasting is incredibly fast and skillful. As I watched the spell being completed, I felt a sense of familiarity for some reason.

“Second style of the Golden Spear Art. Moving Wave.”

Boom!

A golden wave crashed down in an instant.

However, the attack was completely nullified by the spell that I reflexively cast in response.

“Rending Wave.”

Zzzzaaaap!

The shattered spell fragments and the reverberation of spiritual power filled the air.

It was the counter technique, Breaking, that I had used in my previous fight with Cheong Ji-yeon.
