Chapter 5.1

How to Make a Contract with a Shikigami

There are three main ways to make a contract with a shikigami.

The first is to create a shikigami yourself.

This is the preferred method for most exorcists, and the strength of the shikigami depends on the materials used to create it and the skill level of the exorcist.

「𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙖𝙙𝙫𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙖𝙜𝙚 𝙞𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙚𝙖𝙨𝙮 𝙩𝙤 𝙢𝙖𝙠𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙠𝙞𝙜𝙖𝙢𝙞 𝙞𝙨 𝙚𝙖𝙨𝙮 𝙩𝙤 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙧𝙤𝙡, 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙙𝙞𝙨𝙖𝙙𝙫𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙖𝙜𝙚 𝙞𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙘𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙘𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝙞𝙨 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙞𝙘𝙖𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙡𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙡 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙠𝙞𝙜𝙖𝙢𝙞 𝙞𝙨 𝙡𝙤𝙬.」

The second is to summon and make a contract with an existing shikigami.

This includes legendary beasts and guardian deities that appear in myths and legends, and they often boast great power that matches their reputation.

However, they are also rare, difficult to make a contract with, and even if you succeed in making a contract, it is difficult to control them, so this method is not common.

「𝘼𝙣𝙙 𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮.」

The most difficult and dangerous method is to subjugate a yokai and use it as a shikigami.

「𝙏𝙤 𝙗𝙚 𝙝𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙩, 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙨𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙪𝙡𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙚𝙡𝙮 𝙖𝙞𝙢 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙚𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙙 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙧𝙙 𝙢𝙚𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙙𝙨.」

Of course, it is not easy, but if you don’t, you cannot reach the extreme as a shikigami summoner.

“Even so, it has to be the first for now.”

In the first place, the Shadow Assimilation trait is closer to a semi-permanent state than a complete state.

My ability score allows me to make a contract with a shikigami, but it would be difficult to control a powerful one at this point.

In addition, the first method was also the most suitable for my current situation.

「𝘼𝙨 𝙡𝙤𝙣𝙜 𝙖𝙨 𝙄 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙖𝙡𝙨, 𝙄 𝙘𝙖𝙣 𝙢𝙖𝙠𝙚 𝙖𝙡𝙢𝙤𝙨𝙩 𝙖𝙣𝙮𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜, 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙤𝙢𝙚𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙬𝙝𝙤 𝙬𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙜𝙚𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙨𝙚 𝙢𝙖𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙖𝙡𝙨 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙢𝙚.」

That’s why I’m here now, suddenly, at Seo Ji-an’s mansion.

Just in case, let me say it again, I’m at Seo Ji-an’s mansion.

“. . . . . . .”

“Why are you just standing there? Hurry up.”

Seo Ji-an’s house, located outside the school grounds. The reason I called it a mansion was simple.

It was simply too big to be called a house.

“In the first place, there’s no way you could easily bring such dangerous things into the school dormitory.”

“I heard it’s possible if you follow the procedures?”

“It’s annoying, so I don’t like it.”

“. . . . . . .”

Well, even so, I was honestly glad. I needed to meet Seo Ji-an in person sooner or later, and it was true that I was curious.

「𝙎𝙚𝙤 𝙅𝙞-𝙖𝙣’𝙨 𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙨𝙚, 𝙬𝙝𝙞𝙘𝙝 𝙬𝙖𝙨 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙙 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙜𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙡 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙠, 𝙞𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙨𝙚 𝙘𝙪𝙧𝙞𝙤𝙪𝙨.」

However, that curiosity quickly subsided as soon as I entered the house.

“Didn’t you say it was a house?”

“This is a house to me.”

It looked like the office of a high-ranking corporate executive.

There were densely packed materials of unknown origin everywhere, and traces of unfinished work were visible.

“In the first place, I actually live in the dormitory, so this is just something I set up because I needed it.”

Indeed, Seo Ji-an was set to spend most of her time on school grounds. In fact, she even trains in the mountains on the school grounds every night.

“. . . . . .It’s safer inside the school than outside, after all.”

Seo Ji-an’s expression as I said that looked complicated.

“Anyway, I’ve gotten everything you asked for. It’s in that room over there.”

“That was fast.”

“. . . . . .Who was it that told me to hurry up.”

Seo Ji-an muttered with a displeased expression. Well, even though she is a member of Dae-jin Industries, it must have been quite troublesome to collect these shamanic materials one by one.

I took a step to go to the room that Seo Ji-an guided me to.

At that moment, my shadow quivered slightly. As if to warn me.

「. . . . . . .」

Sensing something, I stopped and stood still. Then I shrugged and asked Seo Ji-an.

“Who is it?”

Seo Ji-an, who had been watching the whole thing next to me, suddenly sighed and frowned.

“I told you not to hide like that because it causes unnecessary misunderstandings.”

Swoosh.

“I’m sorry, miss.”

At that moment, I felt a real sense of crisis for the first time since I came to this world.

「𝙄 𝙘𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙𝙣’𝙩 𝙛𝙚𝙚𝙡 𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙥𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝙖𝙩 𝙖𝙡𝙡, 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝 𝙨𝙝𝙚 𝙬𝙖𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙘𝙡𝙤𝙨𝙚.」

At least an intermediate-level or higher concealment technique. That means she’s a very skilled person.

Leaving me alone, the two of them continued to talk.

“I told you, you don’t have to be so vigilant.”

“. . . . . .Even so, this is my job.”

“Then you might as well stick close to me.”

I was concerned about Seo Ji-an, who had abandoned her usual cool demeanor and was getting irritated, but that wasn’t important right now.
