I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 89.2

BOOM!

“What the hell is the problem! Have you completely forgotten about the covenant with our ancestors?”

A special room filled with dense spiritual power. A man in the room shouted into the air, spewing anger.

Then, from an unseen place, a shimmering figure appeared and answered the man.

『How foolish. I have no intention of lending my strength to those who do not even know the price of that covenant. Don’t make me repeat myself.』

“. . . . . . .”

『It’s annoying. Get out of here right now. If it weren’t for the covenant, I would have already burned this whole place down, just like you said.』

“. . .Don’t think you can keep acting like that forever.”

BOOM.

Cheong Do-yool, the head of one of the two major factions that make up the current Cheong family and also an elder of the clan. He frowned, kicked the door open, and returned to his quarters.

Thud.

“. . .You don’t look so good. Did Lord Azure Dragon give you no answer today as well?”

“Tch. He’s not even worth respecting. It’s really frustrating, especially at this critical time.”

The Azure Dragon, who had been together with the clan’s guardian deity for many years, was now nothing more than a burden to the current Cheong Do-yool.

It was even more troublesome because he couldn’t ignore its symbolism.

「𝙄𝙣 𝙤𝙧𝙙𝙚𝙧 𝙩𝙤 𝙨𝙪𝙥𝙥𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝘾𝙝𝙚𝙤𝙣𝙜 𝙎𝙤-𝙝𝙖, 𝙄 𝙙𝙚𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙩𝙚𝙡𝙮 𝙣𝙚𝙚𝙙 𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙥𝙤𝙬𝙚𝙧. . . . . . .」

The forces following Cheong Do-yool and Cheong So-ha were evenly matched, to say the least.

However, Cheong So-ha had been chosen by the Blue-White Sword, a treasure of the clan.

If Cheong Do-yool failed to obtain the power of the Azure Dragon, that difference would surely become a sharp dagger that would eventually cut Cheong Do-yool’s throat someday.

「𝘿𝙖𝙢𝙢𝙞𝙩, 𝘾𝙝𝙚𝙤𝙣𝙜 𝙎𝙖-𝙬𝙤𝙤𝙣. 𝙒𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙝𝙚 𝙝𝙖𝙫𝙚 𝙗𝙚𝙚𝙣 𝙘𝙝𝙤𝙨𝙚𝙣 𝙗𝙮 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝘼𝙯𝙪𝙧𝙚 𝘿𝙧𝙖𝙜𝙤𝙣?」

In fact, the Azure Dragon wasn’t as stingy with him as it was with others.

A descendant of the direct lineage that had served the Azure Dragon in person among the many forces of the Cheong family.

Thinking of Cheong Juhwa’s father, whom he had buried with his own hands, Cheong Do-yool clicked his tongue at the rising unpleasantness.

「𝘾𝙝𝙚𝙤𝙣𝙜 𝙎𝙖-𝙬𝙤𝙤𝙣, 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙣 𝙞𝙣 𝙙𝙚𝙖𝙩𝙝, 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙝𝙖𝙪𝙣𝙩 𝙢𝙚.」

After returning to the Academy, I waited for the right moment, watching for an opportunity.

「𝙄𝙩 𝙬𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙗𝙚 𝙗𝙚𝙨𝙩 𝙩𝙤 𝙬𝙖𝙞𝙩 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝘾𝙝𝙚𝙤𝙣𝙜 𝘿𝙤-𝙮𝙤𝙤𝙡 𝙩𝙤 𝙡𝙚𝙖𝙫𝙚.」

As Cheong Do-yool, one of the elders of the Cheong family, was also in charge of public relations, I was sure that an opportunity would come if I waited long enough.

And luckily enough, I heard that Cheong Do-yool would be leaving Korea for a while to attend a national event.

「𝙏𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙎𝙖𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙙𝙖𝙮. 𝙏𝙝𝙖𝙩’𝙨 𝙬𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙄’𝙡𝙡 𝙘𝙖𝙧𝙧𝙮 𝙤𝙪𝙩 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙣.」

Although the date was set, there was one more important hurdle left.

It was to seek Cheong Juhwa’s cooperation.

「𝙄𝙩’𝙨 𝙙𝙚𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙩𝙚𝙡𝙮 𝙣𝙚𝙘𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙖𝙧𝙮, 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙄 𝙙𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙠𝙣𝙤𝙬 𝙝𝙤𝙬 𝙩𝙤 𝙚𝙭𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙞𝙣 𝙞𝙩. . . . . . .」

To be clear, this is quite a dangerous task.

If we’re not careful, we could end up completely falling out with Cheong Do-yool’s faction, or we could even be accused of stealing a guardian deity and become wanted criminals.

Of course, I was confident that wouldn’t happen, but I wasn’t comfortable asking Cheong Juhwa to do it when she didn’t even know the proper circumstances.

I hesitated like that for two days.

In the end, Cheong Juhwa, who couldn’t stand it any longer, spoke to me first.

“What’s wrong with you these days? Is there something you want to tell me?”

“. . .There is.”

“Then just say it. Stop hesitating and making me worry.”

I carefully explained the situation to Cheong Juhwa in a way that she could understand.

And Cheong Juhwa accepted it very easily.

“Are you really okay with this?”

“Why? In the end, it’s about screwing over Cheong Do-yool, right? Then of course I’m all for it.”

“That’s not wrong. . . . . . .”

Well, from Cheong Juhwa’s point of view, Cheong Do-yool was the root of all evil that caused all her tragedies. It was understandable that she felt so much aversion towards him.

“You said you were confident you wouldn’t get caught. I’m confident I can run away without losing face even if I do get caught. And I have backup anyway.”

By backup, she must be referring to Cheong So-hwa. Since I would be using her name if anything happened, I nodded slightly.

“Then that’s settled. Originally, the one who should have been chosen by the Azure Dragon was my. . . . . . . Cheong Do-yool, that bastard.”

That’s right.

Thinking about her father, Cheong Sa-woon, the Azure Dragon is actually just returning to its rightful place.

Since the person involved said so, I had no reason to dissuade her. In the end, we made an appointment and left the Academy together again early Saturday morning.

The place we headed to was Dobongsan Mountain, located between Dobong-gu, Seoul and Uijeongbu-si, Gyeonggi-do.

It was where the Cheong family’s shrine, where the Azure Dragon slept, was located.
