“There is one Class A student. Han Kang-yoon, who was promoted this time.”

“Then there’s nothing to worry about. But So-ra said that She’s a formidable opponent. sHe did pretty well in class, too.”

They were Lee Yoon-hyeop and Baek Yu-jung, who were in charge of the lower ranks with me among the sixteen Class A students.

They are two people who don’t appear much in the original story, but that doesn’t mean they are easy opponents.

“You take care of Kang-yoon. Since he mainly uses shikigami techniques, you’ll probably have an advantage in terms of compatibility.”

“Well, that’s better. Then I’ll go first.”

Baek Yu-jung, like Baek Eun-seo, is from the Three Great Houses, the Baek family.

However, the difference was that unlike Baek Eun-seo, who was a direct descendant, she was a collateral relative.

「𝙄𝙩’𝙨 𝙙𝙚𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙩𝙚𝙡𝙮 𝙖 𝙨𝙩𝙮𝙡𝙚 𝙄 𝙝𝙖𝙩𝙚, 𝙖𝙨 𝙖 𝙥𝙖𝙘𝙞𝙛𝙞𝙨𝙩.」

After being briefly flustered by the unexpected encounter, one of the lowest-ranking class C students, who had been decided in advance, stepped forward to buy time by casting a shikigami spell.

“Bido-bak!”

And taking advantage of the gap, the rest of the team members began to leave their seats one by one.

I also followed the team members’ lead, following the instructions of Yoon I-hwa, who was watching us from outside the barrier.

『. . . It was a faster encounter than expected, but it can’t be helped. Let’s all hide and regroup.』

However, after a quick look back, I immediately sent a message through the communicator.

“No. We won’t be able to shake them off at this rate.”

『What? That can’t be. . . . . .』

Yoon I-hwa, as a class B student, was aware of how skilled the Class A students were, but unfortunately, the estimate was not accurate.

In particular, Baek Yu-jung, who was from the Baek family, a prestigious family known for its martial arts skills, was not an opponent that the team members could keep up with.

Woong!

“Oh my god. . . . . .”

“Wow, even if they’re Class A, what’s with this speed?”

Tak!

Clang!

“What? You threw a scapegoat at us, and you still couldn’t get this far?”

Baek Yu-jung, who had been kicking the trees around her as if she was flying through the air, landed in front of us in an instant after spinning around in the air.

“At that speed, you won’t be able to escape even if it’s broad daylight. Don’t you think?”

“. . . . . .”

The faces of the team members who were confident in their escape stiffened, and Yoon I-hwa on the other end of the communicator was also flustered and unable to give any further instructions.

Baek Yu-jung took out several Baek family talismans from her arms and attached them to her body as she continued.

“Well, come out starting with the confident ones. Since the others are coming from behind, it’s better to join up quickly, right?”

『No! If we start fighting in earnest, our stamina will run out before we even take the exam properly!』

Yoon I-hwa didn’t get excited and maintained her original stance, but the situation was not good enough to do so.

Then, I slowly raised the corners of my mouth and responded to Baek Yu-jung.

“Are you okay?”

“Why? Are you coming out first?”

“No, your teammates. They’re probably being targeted by other teams who have been watching for an opportunity.”

“What?”

At my words, Baek Yu-jung glanced back half in doubt.

Indeed, the teammates, who should have been spotted from a distance by now, were nowhere to be seen. Baek Yu-jung seemed to realize that my words were not a bluff and let out a sigh.

“Ah, really. I let them all get caught. . . . . .”

“You’d better leave quickly if you’re going to leave. The team that attacked you guys is the Guilford team.”

Guilford, the fifth highest-ranking sophomore. If he was not stopped, Baek Yu-jung’s teammates would have suffered near-annihilation.

In the end, Baek Yu-jung clicked her tongue and immediately left, and we were able to avoid the battle safely.

Once the situation had been sorted out, Yoon I-hwa sent me a message in a questioning voice.

『. . . What happened?』

“It was nothing. I was keeping an eye on the surroundings with shikigami in advance. I deliberately drew attention to them so that Guilford and the other team members would meet.”

『You had the time to do that in the meantime?』

Yoon I-hwa’s question was valid.

Normally, patrolling the surroundings while handling shikigami would cause a surprisingly high degree of fatigue.

『. . . It didn’t show up at all in the commander’s exclusive field of vision? Are you saying that you can perceive a wider range than that?』

Humans are creatures who are busy grasping the sights unfolding before their eyes. It goes without saying that if you add the information captured by the shikigami to that.

However, for me, it was nothing special.

Well, that’s because that’s what I did every day in the game.

「𝙔𝙤𝙪 𝙘𝙖𝙣’𝙩 𝙗𝙚 𝙖 𝙧𝙖𝙣𝙠𝙚𝙧 𝙞𝙛 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙘𝙖𝙣’𝙩 𝙙𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙢𝙪𝙘𝙝 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙖 𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙠𝙞𝙜𝙖𝙢𝙞 𝙨𝙪𝙢𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙧 𝙗𝙪𝙞𝙡𝙙.」

The five surviving team members let out small exclamations of admiration at the sight of me.

“As expected of an Class A. . . . . .”

“With this, we’ll have a significant advantage in moving forward?”

In the refreshed atmosphere, Yoon I-hwa, who felt a sense of doubt, asked a question.

『Then, couldn’t you have avoided Baek Yu-jung’s team earlier?』

“Rather, there was a risk of being detected by the radar of other teams. I spread out the shikigami right after the battle started.”

In fact, it was a lie. At first, I deliberately didn’t say anything because I wanted to see Yoon I-hwa’s judgment.
