『Ah, geez. I’m sorry, Sophie. . . . I can’t seem to find my way around here.』

“Oh, don’t worry about it. I figured it’d turn out like this anyway.”

With Han Kang-yoon’s struggle, had taken Sophia’s number one spot in an instant, and had been wandering around the cave for 30 minutes since entering.

Of course, it wasn’t like she hadn’t made any progress at all, but it was slower than she thought thanks to the elaborate tricks that had been set up to hinder her.

“Ugh. As I thought, getting involved with Kang-yoon is just a pain~”

In fact, if it was Sophia, it wasn’t impossible for her to break through the barrier that was spread throughout the cave.

However, even so, she couldn’t do something so dangerous in a place where so many students were gathered.

“He probably expected all of that too.”

『I see what Sophie meant. This is definitely tricky.』

“It’s even more impressive when you actually try it. This is probably just the preliminary work to buy time.”

『Well, I’m almost jealous since you’re praising him so much. You never say those kinds of things to me.』

“No need to worry about that~ I like Gracie regardless of her skills.”

『Sometimes Sophie is too straightforward, that’s her flaw.』

Although they complained about this and that, they were still getting pretty close to the center of the cave.

Sophia, who was sneaking a peek at the next passage, could now instinctively feel that the destination wasn’t far away.

“Well, I’d like to try sticking together again before anyone interferes.”

They had tested each other’s skills once on Yeongwol Island, but at that time, the situation ended before they could do anything properly.

To be honest, she wasn’t satisfied with that.

『Sophie, you look excited for once.』

“Oh, um. Hehe. That might be true.”

Sophia was feeling bored with her monotonous life. She always had good grades without having to do anything special, and her victories came too easily.

To others, those things were something to be desired, but they were now worthless to Sophia.

That was why she couldn’t help but be interested in someone like Han Kang-yoon, who stood at the center of change.

“Ah, I finally found it.”

A secret passage leading to the center of the cave, where Han Kang-yoon was.

However, she wasn’t the only one who discovered it.

“Hello. As expected, familiar faces~”

“Ugh. I definitely thought I was the first one here.”

“. . .It’s ridiculous that I’m slower than this guy.”

Jung Han-sol and Shin So-ra walked in from different directions as if they had planned it.

Judging from the traces of spiritual power that hadn’t completely disappeared yet, it was clear that they had already encountered other teams and eliminated them all to reach this place.

“You’re not thinking of fighting here, are you? That’s just plain stupid.”

“. . .Well, it’s definitely better to decide the outcome inside.”

“Yeah. Let’s all go together. It’s been a while since this group got together.”

Grace, who was quietly watching the three of them act without any sense of distance even though they were enemies, muttered softly.

Chirp.

『Sophie, are you alright?』

However, in response to that question, Sophia simply smiled meaningfully.

“Yeah. No need to worry at all.”

After all, if they were going to fight, she would definitely be the one to win.

“. . .They’re here.”

I had expected it to some extent, but I let out a sigh at the sight of the three of them entering the innermost part of the cave like it was a painting.

I had hoped that at least one of them would get caught, but it seemed like the supporting characters in the original story weren’t that easy to deal with.

「𝙃𝙬𝙖𝙣𝙜 𝙅𝙞-𝙝𝙖𝙠 𝙞𝙨𝙣’𝙩 𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚, 𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙜𝙝?」

Actually, Hwang Ji-hak was one of the most difficult opponents for me right now, so this wasn’t such a bad outcome.

“As expected, your curse is quite venomous. We went through a lot of trouble to get here, so I wish you would just hand over the item obediently.”

Shin So-ra said to me with a confident smile, while Sophia watched silently from the side.

And, Jung Han-sol, who had been watching the situation,

Thud.

Thud.

Creak.

Approached me without hesitation and began to stare at the two of them.

“. . .Hey, Jung Han-sol. You wouldn’t dare.”

When Jung Han-sol was met with questioning gazes, he quickly averted his eyes and continued speaking.

“Ahem. What are you doing over there? Hurry up and come over here to help out.”

Jung Han-sol let out a short cough, then yelled at Shin So-ra before pointing his finger at Sophia and opening his mouth again.

“Are you confident you can take her one-on-one? You’re not, right? Then let’s settle this as a group of three first.”

“Well, Han-sol, you’re right. It’s good to be straightforward, but you’re too consistent.”

“Shut up, you devil. It’s your fault for being such a monster. How many times have you beaten me up and knocked me out?”

Jung Han-sol seemed to be trying to vent his anger as he pulled out a talisman from his belt.

However, Shin So-ra sighed and said to Jung Han-sol.

“Aren’t you forgetting something?”

“What?”

“I don’t really care about the treasure or anything this time, as long as I can eliminate you first?”

“Ah, th-that. I’m sorry about what happened last time. . . .”
