I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 57.1

So, what do I need to do to get Myung-yul and Hwang Jin-chul’s attention?

What I’m thinking is the sorcery of the future and knowledge.

「𝙈𝙮𝙪𝙣𝙜-𝙮𝙪𝙡 𝙞𝙨 𝙛𝙤𝙘𝙪𝙨𝙚𝙙 𝙤𝙣 𝙨𝙩𝙪𝙙𝙮𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙨𝙤𝙧𝙘𝙚𝙧𝙮 𝙖𝙛𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙧𝙚𝙩𝙞𝙧𝙚𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩, 𝙨𝙤 𝙝𝙚’𝙡𝙡 𝙙𝙚𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙩𝙚𝙡𝙮 𝙗𝙚 𝙝𝙤𝙤𝙠𝙚𝙙.」

And on the other hand, Hwang Jin-chul. I also got more than enough knowledge to attract him.

「𝘽𝙪𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚’𝙨 𝙖 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙗𝙡𝙚𝙢.」

Since it’s a Mental Spellbook trait, there’s no problem with materialization. However, Myung-yul is a former special-grade exorcist, so to really captivate him, it can’t be just any spell.

「𝘼𝙣𝙙 𝙄 𝙘𝙖𝙣’𝙩 𝙪𝙨𝙚 𝙖𝙙𝙫𝙖𝙣𝙘𝙚𝙙 𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙡𝙡𝙨 𝙮𝙚𝙩.」

That’s where Arietta comes in. As a graduating student, she should be able to learn the advanced spells of the future from me and demonstrate them.

There was also an issue with the knowledge I was offering Hwang Jin-chul.

I have images of future technology, items, and familiars in my head, but to be honest, I don’t have the ability to fully realize them.

So I needed someone’s help with that too.

「. . .𝙏𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚’𝙨 𝘾𝙝𝙚𝙤𝙣𝙜 𝙅𝙪𝙝𝙬𝙖.」

However, she’s participating in the presentation as one of the first-year representatives along with Yoo Ha-on’s group, so it’s difficult to just ask her for help.

「𝙄 𝙜𝙪𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝙄’𝙡𝙡 𝙟𝙪𝙨𝙩 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙙𝙤 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙄 𝙘𝙖𝙣 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙣𝙤𝙬.」

I taught Arietta the basics of shikigami knowledge as promised, and at the same time, I started teaching her advanced spells.

Apparently, according to the original work, the spells that Myung-yul is currently studying are of the barrier type.

Perhaps it’s because he’s retired from the front lines and is considering ways to help in a different way.

In that case, all I had to do was show him a suitable future barrier spell.

“. . .Eight Gates Formation?”

“Yes. I’m sure a senior like you will be familiar with it.”

“You made this? You?”

“Yes.”

It wasn’t true, but no one else would name it anyway. I ignored my guilty conscience and explained the details of the spell to Arietta.

Then, for some reason, I felt a gaze of admiration.

“. . .The structure is amazing. It’s efficient and brilliant.”

“I’m glad to hear that.”

In response to my calm answer, Arietta checked the contents of the spell several times and then spoke to me again with slightly widened eyes.

“Even my teacher can’t make something like this. It’s definitely on a different level.”

“Will you be able to learn it?”

“The explanation is detailed, so I might be able to if I’m given enough time.”

Arietta seemed to be in a state of concentration as she walked around with the bundle of papers describing the spell.

Then, she suddenly began to gather spiritual power and chanted an incantation.

“Void Hexagram. Six Conflicts and Three Harmonies.”

Whoosh,

The spell was slowly taking shape, and refined spiritual power flowed through it.

And then, it suddenly shattered, leaving about half of it unfinished.

Bam!

“. . .I guess I can’t do it right away. Give me some time.”

“It’s okay to practice slowly. As long as you can use it before the presentation, that’s enough.”

I managed to stay calm, but to be honest, I was quite surprised. Even though it was a more advanced spell from the future, she was able to get a feel for it just by seeing it, which is a top-class sense and talent.

I was convinced that she would become a strong opponent in the future and stand in the way of Yoo Ha-on’s group.

Of course, the process and reasons for that are still a mystery.

「𝙈𝙖𝙮𝙗𝙚 𝙄’𝙡𝙡 𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙙 𝙖 𝙘𝙡𝙪𝙚 𝙞𝙛 𝙄 𝙠𝙚𝙚𝙥 𝙖𝙣 𝙚𝙮𝙚 𝙤𝙣 𝙝𝙚𝙧.」

Even if I hadn’t had a connection with Adrian, I was planning to contact Arietta separately sooner or later.

If I could correct the past and change one of the future story bosses, there wouldn’t be a more efficient change than that.

「. . . . . . .」

In any case, time would tell.

The preparations for the presentation went smoothly.

I was a little tired because of the tight schedule, but thinking about the future, the sweat I was shedding now was worth more than anything.

As I was going through each day like that, I suddenly became curious and went to see Cheong Juhwa to tell her about it.

I was wondering if Yoo Ha-on’s group, who were going to be presenting as the first-year representatives, would be doing the same project as in the original work.

“The content of our presentation? Of course, it’s a secret.”

“. . . . . . .”

When I looked at her with an expressionless face, Cheong Juhwa changed her words in an instant as if she couldn’t help it.

“Well, since we’re a team, I guess it’s not like I can’t tell you. We all know each other anyway, right?”

“I guess so.”
