I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 46.1

𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟒𝟔

Four of us, including me, left for the village on an errand.

Baek Eun-seo and Yoo Ha-on, and Han Seo-ah from the same Class 1-A.

We were so focused on entering through the entrance that we didn’t have a chance to look around, but near Dongaksan Mountain, there were various barriers spread out in all directions.

Perhaps because it was a place where people rarely visited, it seemed to be intended to prevent the approach of yokai that we hadn’t yet discovered.

Since there was nothing to do after we left, I began to check the results of Yoo Ha-on and the others’ training one by one while we were walking.

As expected of the main characters of the original story, they all showed remarkable growth in such a short period of time. In particular, Yoo Ha-on had jumped up almost 10 levels.

Of course, she must have gained a lot from the training at the Baek family, but the fact that she showed such rapid growth meant that Yoo Ha-on and the others’ talents were that outstanding.

「. . .𝙏𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙞𝙙𝙚 𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙘𝙖𝙢𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙘𝙧𝙞𝙨𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙡𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙡.」

It was a bit sad, but it couldn’t be helped. Rather, it’s amazing that I’ve grown this much, even though I’m not one of the main characters.

As I was satisfactorily checking the growth of my party, Baek Eun-seo, who had been walking silently, finally voiced her complaint.

“Ugh, Sister Seo-ha. You said we’d get there soon!”

It took longer than expected to get to the village from Dongaksan Mountain.

Even though we walked for about an hour without resting, we still hadn’t arrived.

Baek Eun-seo, who had been grumbling, looked closely at the map on her cell phone as we approached our destination and muttered.

“I think it’s around here. . . . . . . Was this place originally this deserted?”

It was around six o’clock in the afternoon, and the sun was beginning to set. There were dense trees and grass around the deserted mountain path.

It might have been my imagination, but a chilly aura was definitely creeping up on the surroundings.

“I can see the entrance over there.”

Following Yoo Ha-on, who was walking ahead, we all entered the village together.

At the same time, I took a quick look around and slowly assessed the situation.

「𝘼𝙧𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙚𝙭𝙤𝙧𝙘𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙨 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙝𝙚𝙖𝙙𝙦𝙪𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙮𝙚𝙩?」

According to the story, investigators are dispatched from headquarters to search for the missing Defense Corps exorcists. And Yoo Ha-on and the others help them fight Sori-soe.

However, judging from the lack of any noticeable signs, it seems that we arrived before them.

Thud.

Thud.

“It’s quieter than I thought. It seems to be quite large.”

“Eun-seo, have you ever been here?”

“No. I’ve only heard about it, so this is my first time seeing it in person.”

We gradually began to see fields and houses of various colors where the residents lived, but even though the sun hadn’t completely set yet, there were hardly any people outside.

「𝘼𝙨 𝙚𝙭𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙚𝙙. . . . . . .」

I can’t be sure yet, but it matches the description of the village from the original story exactly.

In the meantime, a child from afar spotted us and started running towards us noisily.

Clack, clack.

Clack!

The little boy stopped close by, confirmed our appearance, and blinked his eyes several times before opening his small mouth.

“Who are you, sisters?”

Baek Eun-seo smiled brightly, lowered her gaze, and asked the child a question.

“Do you live here by any chance? I came to meet someone, do you know where the elder’s house is, the one with the blue roof?”

“Grandpa? Yes! Follow me this way!”

I glanced at the little boy as he answered vigorously.

Thinking about the being that might be lurking within that appearance.

Knock.

Knock knock.

“Grandpa! We have guests!”

The child’s behavior is very natural. There is no sense of strangeness in his expression, gestures, or tone of voice.

Of course. Sori-soe can take away the experiences and knowledge of the humans it devours and perfectly impersonate the person.

Even though he’s smiling so innocently, it might already be like an empty doll.

I felt a little sad when I realized that. But it can’t be helped. I have to clearly distinguish between what I can and cannot do.

Otherwise, I would have definitely lost my purpose and been swept away by the situation.

Creak.

The old door opened, and a tired-looking old man appeared from inside.

“. . .Who are you?”
