As one might expect, the Cheonghwa Academy festival is held on a rather grand scale.

As such, the surrounding Defense Corps sends any personnel they can spare to help with security measures, and the Three Great Clans also send support, so it’s something that always requires attention.

And I, through my connections with one of the Cheong family elders last night, Cheong So-ha, requested that they increase the number of support personnel.

「. . .𝙏𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙝𝙚𝙡𝙥 𝙢𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙜𝙖𝙩𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙨𝙪𝙧𝙥𝙧𝙞𝙨𝙚 𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙖𝙘𝙠 𝙩𝙤 𝙨𝙤𝙢𝙚 𝙚𝙭𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙩.」

The reason behind this plan to assassinate the Academy Dean is related to the family of the Vice Dean, Yoo Hye-jin, as well as her past.

To be precise, it was a tragedy surrounding Yoo Han-sung, the head of the family Yoo Hye-jin belonged to, and also her father, that was the cause.

「𝙏𝙝𝙚 𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙚𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙖𝙩𝙩𝙖𝙘𝙠𝙚𝙧𝙨, 𝙗𝙮 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙬𝙖𝙮, 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙢𝙚𝙢𝙗𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙣𝙤𝙬-𝙙𝙚𝙛𝙪𝙣𝙘𝙩 𝙛𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙡𝙮 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙔𝙤𝙤 𝙃𝙮𝙚-𝙟𝙞𝙣’𝙨 𝙤𝙡𝙙𝙚𝙧 𝙨𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙧.」

Yoo Han-sung was the head of a fairly powerful family, but he dabbled in forbidden sorcery, which is strictly prohibited in the shamanic world.

Furthermore, he collaborated with evil warlocks behind the scenes, so one could say that his death was a result of his own actions.

However, the problem was that the one who exposed his wrongdoings to the public and took the lead in expelling him was the current Vice Head of the Academy, Yoo Hye-jin, who was an Executor in the Exorcism Headquarters at the time.

As a result of her accusing her own father of his crimes and driving him to his death, the family completely fell apart.

In short, her older sister, Yoo Hye-yeon, and the surviving members of the family harbored a grudge against her.

「𝙏𝙝𝙚𝙞𝙧 𝙢𝙖𝙞𝙣 𝙜𝙤𝙖𝙡 𝙞𝙨 𝙩𝙤 𝙠𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙔𝙤𝙤 𝙃𝙮𝙚-𝙟𝙞𝙣, 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙮’𝙡𝙡 𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙫𝙞𝙩𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙮 𝙩𝙧𝙮 𝙩𝙤 𝙘𝙖𝙪𝙨𝙚 𝙖 𝙝𝙪𝙜𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙢𝙤𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙘𝙚𝙨𝙨.」

Even if they fail, so long as they can tarnish her future, they won’t hesitate to make any sacrifices.

That’s how they operate.

「𝙏𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙩𝙬𝙤 𝙢𝙖𝙞𝙣 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙗𝙡𝙚𝙢𝙨.」

First of all, despite the fact that their motive is simply a personal grudge, their overall strength is nothing to scoff at.

Just their leader, Yoo Hye-yeon, is a 1st-grade exorcist, and among the remnants of the clan, there are quite a few 2nd-grade and 3rd-grade exorcists.

And these guys, just to get at Yoo Hye-jin, are unleashing dangerous forbidden sorcery within this Academy, which their former family was involved in.

「𝙔𝙤𝙤 𝙃𝙮𝙚-𝙮𝙚𝙤𝙣 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙜𝙖𝙣𝙜 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜, 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙝𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙡𝙮, 𝙬𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙄 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙮𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙢𝙮𝙨𝙚𝙡𝙛, 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙮 𝙬𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙖 𝙗𝙞𝙜𝙜𝙚𝙧 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙗𝙡𝙚𝙢.」

And the second difficult point.

Yoo Hye-yeon’s group has been involved in forbidden magic for quite some time, so most of them have accumulated a certain amount of karma.

In short, they’re not in their right minds.

「𝙒𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙛𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙫𝙖𝙡 𝙜𝙤𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙤𝙣, 𝙞𝙩’𝙨 𝙣𝙤𝙞𝙨𝙮 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙖 𝙡𝙤𝙩 𝙤𝙛 𝙤𝙪𝙩𝙨𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙧𝙨. 𝙄𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙢𝙞𝙙𝙨𝙩 𝙤𝙛 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩, 𝙞𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙮 𝙜𝙤 𝙤𝙣 𝙖 𝙧𝙖𝙢𝙥𝙖𝙜𝙚 𝙬𝙝𝙞𝙡𝙚 𝙗𝙚𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙞𝙣𝙛𝙡𝙪𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚𝙙 𝙗𝙮 𝙖 𝙘𝙪𝙧𝙨𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙘𝙖𝙣’𝙩 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙣 𝙧𝙚𝙘𝙤𝙜𝙣𝙞𝙯𝙚 𝙛𝙖𝙘𝙚𝙨, 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙙𝙖𝙢𝙖𝙜𝙚 𝙞𝙨 𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙤 𝙗𝙚 𝙝𝙪𝙜𝙚.」

In the original story, the clear condition was to protect Yoo Hye-jin and keep the overall damage below a certain level, but from what I experienced firsthand, even that wasn’t easy.

「. . .𝙏𝙝𝙚𝙮 𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙪𝙡𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙤𝙧 𝙢𝙤𝙩𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙨, 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚’𝙨 𝙣𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙬𝙧𝙤𝙣𝙜 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙞𝙧 𝙞𝙙𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙚𝙨, 𝙨𝙤 𝙞𝙩’𝙨 𝙞𝙢𝙥𝙤𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙗𝙡𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙥𝙧𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙢 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙞𝙣 𝙖𝙙𝙫𝙖𝙣𝙘𝙚.」

In any case, my current goal isn’t much different.

I have to protect Yoo Hye-jin, who will soon be appointed as the new Academy Dead, and minimize the overall damage as much as possible.

And in the process, I have to back up Yoo Ha-on and her friends, who will be caught up in the center of the incident.

To do that, a preliminary investigation was the top priority.

Since I had some information from Baek Ji-eun anyway, I decided to call Adrian and Cheong Haram, who were in the same supervising group, and personally inspect the planned tour course.

“. . .They’re places we see every day anyway, do we really need to be so meticulous about it?”

Cheong Haram, who still can’t look me in the eye properly, said this in a sarcastic tone.

Adrian said this to Cheong Haram in a coaxing manner.

“You say that, but you only go to the places you usually go to. If you fumble in front of the students on the day of the tour, it’ll be really embarrassing.” 

“Easy for you to say. You’re the famous klutz of the whole grade.”

“. . . . . . .”

Adrian, who had brought this up for no reason and couldn’t even get a rise out of her, came up to me with a dejected look on his face and muttered.

“It’s been over a year, but she’s really hard to get close to. Don’t you think?”

“. . .It can’t be helped. There are just a lot of people with strong personalities here.”

“S-She’s right behind you! She can hear you!”

Ignoring Cheong Haram, who was getting worked up, we went around the planned course step by step, thinking about what we needed to do on the day.

Of course, I was visualizing something else in the process.

「𝙏𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙖𝙧𝙚𝙖 𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙧 𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙞𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙗𝙤𝙤𝙩𝙝 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙗𝙖𝙧𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙧 𝙩𝙚𝙘𝙝𝙣𝙞𝙦𝙪𝙚 𝙚𝙭𝙥𝙡𝙤𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣, 𝙧𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩?」
