I Became the Academy’s Genius Shikigami Summoner – Chapter 99.2

In fact, the level itself is higher than Harvey, who I fought in Spain last time.

However, unlike Harvey, who lost his composure and stimulated the Wailing of the Dead, causing his own self-destruction, Woo Ki-bum was responding to my movements with a calm attitude. As expected, it was quite a difficult task to suppress a skilled person who was close to level 50 head-on.

「𝙀𝙫𝙚𝙣 𝙨𝙤, 𝙄’𝙢 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙗𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙮 𝙩𝙬𝙤 𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙥𝙨 𝙖𝙝𝙚𝙖𝙙?」

Looking at the results alone, the two of us were evenly matched, but in the process, it was clear that I was the one who had swayed the opponent.

Knowing that, Woo Ki-bum wasn’t charging at me recklessly while keeping his distance. However, his specs were still higher on his side. It was clear that Woo Ki-bum would be thinking that at this point and preparing a finishing move that would utilize his superior specs.

「𝙏𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚’𝙨 𝙣𝙤 𝙣𝙚𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙤 𝙧𝙪𝙨𝙝 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙨 𝙖𝙘𝙘𝙤𝙧𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙨𝙞𝙙𝙚’𝙨 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨.」

There were only two enemies left behind anyway.

If Han Seo-ah and Choe Da-in joined forces with my shikigami, it would be possible to clean them up.

All I had to do was calmly calculate my moves and slowly pressure Woo Ki-bum like I was playing a game of Go.

“Hyung-nim! They’re almost all done for!”

“. . .Tch.”

Woo Ki-bum, who hadn’t moved rashly until now, was finally forced to hurriedly gather his strength and try to settle things with me.

「𝙄𝙩’𝙡𝙡 𝙙𝙚𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙩𝙚𝙡𝙮 𝙗𝙚 𝙖 𝙝𝙞𝙜𝙝-𝙡𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙡 𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙡𝙡.」

That was the only way to truly defeat me. However, that was exactly my winning move.

「𝙋𝙧𝙚𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙩𝙚.」

Since we were apart, Woo Ki-bum must have unconsciously thought that the distance was enough, but in fact, that was a trap that I had devised in advance.

A high-level spell, or to be exact, the moment he recited the incantation and formed the spell to cast it, Woo Ki-bum would meet his end without even knowing what had happened to him.

「. . .𝘾𝙤𝙢𝙚.」

I continued the standoff without showing that fact, and eventually Woo Ki-bum, who couldn’t hold back any longer, crossed the line.

“Taoist Swordsmanship Spell. . . . . . .”

The incantation of the high-level spell finally began, and I immediately moved to settle things.

「𝙄𝙩’𝙨 𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙧.」

However, at that moment, a strong surge of spiritual power suddenly erupted from somewhere and stretched out towards me.

Crackle!

Swoosh!

“. . .Huff.”

I reflexively cast a defensive spell to block the attack, but even though it wasn’t a fully powered attack, the shock reverberated deep within my bones.

The opponent was a graceful woman with long braided hair, wearing traditional Chinese clothing.

I’m not sure, but she definitely seemed to be a formidable opponent.

“sister? Why. . . . . . .”

“Didn’t you notice? If you had just fought like that, you would have definitely died?”

“. . . . . . .”

The opponent whom even Woo Ki-bum, who called her sister, couldn’t handle easily.

Perhaps she was the new force of Woo Ki-bum’s party that could rival Yoo Tae-jin, the 1st-grade exorcist.

Looking at Woo Ki-bum’s party, who had suffered a humiliating defeat that was almost a complete loss, the woman continued, sounding disappointed.

“Oh my, come to think of it, didn’t they say that you were the second-in-command here? You’re much more useless than I thought.”

“I’m sorry about that, sister, but it seems that Yoo Tae-jin also has a new talent under him on that side.”

“So, is he stronger than that guy, Yoo Tae-jin?”

“. . .Even so, it wouldn’t be to that extent.”

While they were talking to each other, I quickly appraised the woman’s information.

Ding!

And her identity was, to be honest, something I had never expected.

「𝙒𝙝𝙮 𝙞𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙬𝙤𝙢𝙖𝙣 𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙚?」

I realized it when I saw it.

A luxurious silk cheongsam, and long hair braided on both sides.

It was definitely the same appearance as Xiao Chen, the barrier master of the Yahwak that appeared in the original game.

「. . .𝙏𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙨 𝙗𝙖𝙙.」

As I said before, I don’t have the confidence to win against a member of Yahwak other than the transcendent Hektel. At least, that was the case for now.

In particular, this Xiao Chen was like my natural enemy, who was the most incompatible with me among them.

「𝙏𝙝𝙖𝙩’𝙨 𝙗𝙚𝙘𝙖𝙪𝙨𝙚 𝙄 𝙙𝙤𝙣’𝙩 𝙪𝙨𝙚 𝙖𝙣𝙮 𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙗𝙞𝙙𝙙𝙚𝙣 𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙡𝙡𝙨 𝙬𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙄 𝙛𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩.」

Xiao Chen was a barrier master, and she was also a genius who further developed the barrier of her family’s lineage and made it her own.

And that was a level of spellcraft that I couldn’t possibly deal with in my current state.

I glanced at them and first joined up with where Han Seo-ah and Choe Da-in were.

The two subordinates of Woo Ki-bum, who had also survived, hurriedly distanced themselves, and we were faced with an imminent crisis in front of an overwhelmingly powerful opponent.

“In the end, Yoo Tae-jin isn’t coming, so what are we going to do with these guys?”

“If sister catches them and hands them over to us. . . . . . .”

“Hmm, I’m not really interested.”

“Oh, why are you being so stingy, sister? We’ve been serving you so diligently all this time.”

“He’s much more handsome than you.”

“. . . . . . .”

Come to think of it, I remember that Xiao Chen had a setting where she was quite particular about appearances.

Surely, the reason she became interested in Yahwak in the first place was because she liked the unique atmosphere of Bi-hyeong.

In any case, if we fought head-on, we would definitely be annihilated in less than 10 minutes, so we had to find another way.

“But still, it’s a bit much to just let them go, right? Let’s take them hostage and call that guy Yoo Tae-jin here or something.”

“. . .I have something to say before that.”

“Huh? What is it?”

I didn’t want to reveal it at this point, but I had no choice.

I decided to throw the bait I had been saving up to Xiao Chen, who asked in a leisurely voice.

“By any chance, do you want to get out of here?”

At those words, Woo Ki-bum laughed mockingly, and Xiao Chen snorted as if to say that she didn’t believe in lies.

“Even though your side hasn’t given up for 7 whole years, you still haven’t found a way? It doesn’t seem like there’s any possibility left for such an incompetent group.”

However, to such a Xiao Chen, I continued to speak with confidence.

“You can get out.”

“With what kind of confidence?”

“Because I already know the way.”

At those words, the expressions of everyone present wavered meaningfully.
