The Weakest Summoner’s School Conquest – I Became Strong Only After Losing – Chapter 111

𝐉𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭 𝐌𝐞𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠

Asgard Summoning Academy Main Building・Conference Hall.

After school. Albero and the others arrived at the conference hall.

The conference hall can accommodate over a thousand people and is a special hall located in the basement of the academy. Every meeting held here addresses important matters, and it’s said there’s a function to prevent eavesdropping through the use of summoned beasts.

By the way, students rarely use it. Yorha knew of its existence, but this was her first time entering.

“It’s spacious. . . . . .and the ceiling is high.”

“Hey, forget that, are we starting soon? Are the A-class jerks not here yet?”

“Hey, watch your mouth.”

Ridelle lightly nudges Kid for his harsh words as a warning.

Garnet, who came along, directs everyone to the curved table.

“Sit and wait. The Student Council will be here soon.”

“Hey, is there no alcohol?”

“Give it a rest and just wait.”

“Ugh, I’m getting nervous.”

“M, Me too. . . . . .”

Ashe and Lapis are nervous. Albero sits and gazes at the ceiling, while Yorha waits silently.

Kid yawns widely, and Ridelle looks around curiously.

Nisrok lays down, appearing to nap, while Leivinia munches on cookies she brought with her.

Then, the doors to the conference hall open.

“━━Hmm.”

Oswald. And behind him, all members of the Student Council.

They glance at Albero and the others with a snobbish demeanor and sit directly opposite them.

Albero notices Fugil and gives a slight nod, to which Fugil responds with a small nod of his own.

Garnet stands between the A-class and S-class.

“We will now commence the 『demon subjugation』 team’s information-sharing meeting. I’ll say this upfront: if anyone disrupts the meeting with unnecessary remarks or starts needless fights. . . . . .you understand, right?”

 Garnet lit a pipe and began to smoke, exhaling smoke.

 The exhaled smoke flickered and formed a tiger-like face.

“Alright, let’s start by discussing the new demon. . . . . .”

Garnet explains the information provided by the kingdom.

It’s the same information both A-class and S-class had. The destruction of villages and settlements in the territories outside the kingdom. There’s a possibility that an unknown demon is involved. The investigation and the demon’s subjugation.

After covering the basics, Garnet introduces new information.

“From the map of the kingdom’s surroundings, we’ve narrowed down three settlements that might be attacked by the demon. Both S-class and A-class are to head to these settlements. If you encounter the demon, intercept and subdue it.”

“Three, huh. . . . . .Old lady, can we trust this information?”

Despite Kid’s rude remark calling her “old lady”, the girls from the Student Council shoot him a sharp glance. But Garnet, used to Kid’s way of speaking, doesn’t mind.

“It’s the result of a prediction by 『Fate』 Nakshatra. Still not reassured?”

“. . . . . .Tch.”

『Fate』 Nakshatra.

One of the twenty-one strongest, Nakshatra is a summoner who excels in divination. Although lacking in direct combat ability, she supports the twenty-one through her divination skills.

With results from Nakshatra’s predictions, there’s no choice but to accept.

“Now, the selection has already been made. Esterize.”

“Yes. I will be the leader of the squad, and Professor Oswald will be in charge of the guidance.”

“Hah. . . . . .Just to confirm, you’re not going to tell us to follow you guys, right?”

“Kid, stop it.”

Ridelle tried to stop it, but Oswald responded.

“Of course. Esterize-kun has commanded troops in demon beast subjugation several times. Are you suggesting that this makeshift group of S-class take the lead?”

“Who was it that disgracefully lost to this makeshift group? Someone with eyes popped out and a sunken face, perhaps?”

“Watch your mouth, commoner.”

“Oh, scary~. A noble’s threat is really touching.”

Kid teased Oswald with a smirk.

But Oswald contorted his face with a sneer.

“Garnet-sama. As I mentioned, while the S-class might have high individual abilities, how about their group combat? Who among the S-class has command experience? Who has experience leading large-scale demon beast subjugation? No matter how superior one’s personal ability, it can be a hindrance in a group. But if someone can harness that power, it’s a different story. Therefore, please leave the command for the subjugation to the A-class.”

“. . . . . .Well, you have a point.”

Garnet looked at Albero.

Albero, with a disgusted look on his face, shook his head.

But Garnet shook her head in disagreement.

“Alright. We’ll entrust the command to the A-class summoner. Is that okay?”

“Don’t be ridiculous. I’m not on board with that.”

“. . . . . .Hmm.”

Kid declined. Albero growled in displeasure.

Ashe, Lapis, Ridelle, and Yorha also looked displeased.

Then, the previously silent Esterize spoke up.

“Albero, do you remember what I said before?”

“. . . . . .What?”

“I will make use of your power.”

Esterize stood up and approached Albero.

She placed a hand on his cheek and brought her face very close to his.

“Serve under me. Then you’ll understand the meaning of your power.”

“. . . . . .”

It was only then that everyone noticed.

Albero and Esterize. They had the same hair color, same eye color, and similar facial features.

Esterize had a look of curiosity on her face, while Albero’s expression was one of emptiness. Even though Esterize, his sister, brought her face close to his, he was completely unfazed.

He dismissively waved her off.

“How ridiculous. However, I get the feeling you truly want to defeat the demon, so I’m okay with fighting together. But I’m not interested in your talk about serving under you or understanding power.”

“Hmph, you’ll understand soon. You might be stronger than me, but that’s all.”

“Yeah, yeah, sure.”

Albero truly wasn’t interested.

He had just heeded Garnet’s request to avoid trouble. He genuinely didn’t care about Esterize.

For some reason, Esterize looked triumphant, but Albero didn’t get it at all.

“Alright. The A-class summoner will take command of the troops. We’ll depart in two days. Classes are canceled from tomorrow, so prepare well.”

And with that, the meeting ended.

The command of the troops was decided to be with Esterize and the A-class summoner.

Albero and the other S-class would also serve under Esterize’s command.

Little did Albero know that this decision would lead to a terrifying situation.
