I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 80.2

After much deliberation, I came up with three traits that I suspected were the originals of the Anti-Demon trait.

The first one was the C+ rank Spirit Control that she just obtained.

And the other two were the A rank Divine Power trait and the B- rank Demon Subjugation trait.

「𝙏𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚’𝙨 𝙣𝙤𝙬𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙚𝙡𝙨𝙚 𝙩𝙤 𝙜𝙤 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚.」

Of course, I can’t rule out the possibility that there are traits in this world that I don’t know about, but at least among the traits that were in the game, these three seemed to be the most likely.

“That’s enough for today. Let’s go back.”

“Yes. . . . . .”

For now, we’ve succeeded in obtaining the easiest trait to acquire, Spirit Control, but to be honest, the other two won’t be easy to get.

Plus, it’ll take a long time to raise the traits.

「𝙄𝙩 𝙬𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙗𝙚 𝙚𝙖𝙨𝙮.」

Even so, I had to do it.

Having the Anti-Demon trait or not would be the biggest turning point for Yoo Ha-on.

「. . .𝙄𝙛 𝙞𝙩 𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙣𝙨 𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙩𝙤 𝙗𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙩𝙚𝙡𝙮 𝙪𝙨𝙚𝙡𝙚𝙨𝙨, 𝙄 𝙘𝙖𝙣 𝙟𝙪𝙨𝙩 𝙚𝙧𝙖𝙨𝙚 𝙞𝙩.」

As I said before, it’s impossible right now, but there is a way to erase traits someday. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try it once.

“. . .Are we going to do the same training next week?”

“No, this is enough. Now it’s something else. This time, it’ll really help you noticeably.”

Also, rather than pursuing uncertain possibilities, I decided to focus on a surefire power-up.

“There’s something I need to tell you.”

I don’t know if this is really the right thing to do, but I’ve already made up my mind after much deliberation.

“Come to Training Ground 4 this evening.”

I was now planning to teach Yoo Ha-on the spell of the future.

For Yoo Ha-on, Han Kang-yoon was someone she knew but didn’t know.

「𝙃𝙚 𝙬𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙩𝙚𝙡𝙡 𝙢𝙚 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙥𝙖𝙨𝙩, 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙝𝙚’𝙨 𝙨𝙤 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙙 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙢𝙚.」

Of course, she was now determined to find out for herself, but on the other hand, she had become very curious about Han Kang-yoon himself.

「𝙃𝙚 𝙨𝙚𝙚𝙢𝙨 𝙩𝙤 𝙠𝙣𝙤𝙬 𝙖 𝙡𝙤𝙩 𝙖𝙗𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙢𝙚. . . . . .」

Sometimes, he would even know the little things that she hadn’t told him, which surprised her.

Anyway, no matter what, it was clear that Han Kang-yoon was a very great person.

He was strong, reliable, and kind to those around him. He was the very image of an ideal senior.

However, sometimes, she felt that something was strange, beyond those feelings.

It was as if he was looking at a different world than we were.

As if he was observing something from a different dimension.

That must have been closely related to the secrets that Han Kang-yoon held.

「𝘼𝙣𝙮𝙬𝙖𝙮, 𝙖𝙩 𝙡𝙚𝙖𝙨𝙩 𝙝𝙚 𝙙𝙤𝙚𝙨𝙣’𝙩 𝙩𝙖𝙡𝙠 𝙣𝙤𝙣𝙨𝙚𝙣𝙨𝙚.」

That’s why Yoo Ha-on and her friends mostly followed Han Kang-yoon’s words.

And so, Yoo Ha-on headed to the training ground without hesitation when Han Kang-yoon called her.

And there, she saw an unbelievable sight.

“Do you know what this feels like? This is a reconstructed form of the Rending Wave attack spell, the Rending Slash.”

“. . . . . .”

A spiral magic imprint replaced the ring-shaped imprint that had been used before. And the layers of spell fragments piled up on top of each other.

For Yoo Ha-on, it was full of concepts that she couldn’t understand.

“Did you make all of this yourself?”

She knew that he had gained attention at the last public presentation for his newly developed barrier spell.

However, the spells that Han Kang-yoon was showing her now weren’t just one or two. That confused Yoo Ha-on.

“Actually, I’ve always been able to understand the structure and points of improvement of a spell just by looking at it once.”

“Ah, so the Vision spell from the Cheong family. . . . . .”

Eunseo didn’t believe it, thinking that Juhwa must have told him, but if that was true, then it wasn’t really that strange.

In any case, this was a very big deal. At the very least, it was an achievement that couldn’t be compared to the evaluations of grade leader or second-in-command.

Wasn’t Han Kang-yoon’s mind a treasure trove of knowledge for modern exorcists?

However, Yoo Ha-on couldn’t understand it even more because of that.

“Why are you telling me this, of all people?”

If he offered it to a prestigious family or handed it over to a powerful force in Korea, he could get a much higher price.

However, Yoo Ha-on had nothing to offer in return.

Then Han Kang-yoon replied with the same bitter expression he had shown her at the lakeside the other day.

“. . .There are many reasons, but I thought that if I told someone for the first time, it should be you.”

“Why?”

“Just. Because it makes sense.”

It was a statement that she couldn’t understand at all. However, Han Kang-yoon’s attitude was consistently serious.

So Yoo Ha-on had no choice but to accept his feelings.

“Yes. I don’t know much, but I’ll gladly learn it.”

Yoo Ha-on had been growing her desire for growth even more recently.

Unlike on Yeongwol Island, she had now cultivated a mental strength that wouldn’t easily crumble even in front of a powerful enemy, but even so, it was still far from enough.

At the very least, she wanted to be someone who could fulfill her duty as an exorcist against any enemy.

That’s what Yoo Ha-on wanted to be.

「𝘼𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙣, 𝙗𝙮 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚. . . . . .」

She would definitely be able to stand on equal footing with Han Kang-yoon, who was right before her eyes, and support each other’s backs.

She didn’t want to keep relying on him for everything.

She didn’t know what secrets he held, but Yoo Ha-on vowed to grow enough to be able to share them someday.

And so, another night came to an end.
