The Weakest Summoner’s School Conquest – I Became Strong Only After Losing – Chapter 88

𝐀𝐥𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐨 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐓𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐅𝐚𝐥𝐮𝐨

A-class Summoner Oswald was feeling frustrated in the staff room of the Asgard Summoning Academy.

The cause of his irritation was the S-class Summoners. After achieving remarkable success in demon subjugation, their reputation within the kingdom soared. Even teachers who were once against the S-class now changed their stance upon hearing about their rising popularity within the country.

Similarly, the nobles who were initially against the S-class Summoner flipped their stance quite easily.

Oswald’s family was of the Viscount rank and was at the forefront of opposing the S-class. However, once Albero, the demon subjugator of 『Wrath』, became famous in the kingdom, fearing potential disadvantages for opposing him, they distanced themselves from Oswald.

By now, the A-class Summoner is seen as just a step below the S-class Summoner.

Among A-class Summoners, some even aim to become S-class Summoners. Rumors are now circulating that in order to become an S-class Summoner, one must be acknowledged by the leading S-class Summoner, Albero Rushout.

Oswald was irate over the current situation where A-class Summoners are no longer seen as the pinnacle, but rather a stepping stone towards becoming S-class.

And in the staff room, while he was working, he couldn’t help but overhear.

“S-class summoner Albero Rushout. He really outdid himself.”

“Yes, have you heard? The nobles are even planning to sponsor for the S-class Summoners.”

“Wow! Considering the S-class building is made of wood, it might be time for an upgrade.”

“Indeed. The S-class Summoners might be few in number, but considering the future. . . . . .”

All he could hear were words of praise.

Before he realized, teachers stopped approaching Oswald, who was against the S-class.

Yet, Oswald didn’t care. He still believed that the A-class Summoner is the ultimate rank.

Amidst this, Faluo, who had recently been promoted to the position of year leader, entered the staff room.

He approached Marie, the female deputy head teacher.

“Teacher Marie, do you have a moment?”

“Yes, what is it?”

“Actually, it’s about the press conference. I thought it would be good to have a proper conversation with Albero. After school, I’ll be heading to the S-class building. Would you join me?”

“Understood. A press conference, you say?”

“Yes, it’s Principal Meteore’s idea. He wants to clearly establish the position of an S-class Summoner.”

“Position, you say?”

“Yes, as the kingdom of Asgard’s ultimate power. And since the budget was just approved, they are planning to make uniforms exclusive for the S-class Summoners. Measurements for that will be taken too.”

“I see. . . . . .fufu, S-class Summoner. I was surprised when I first heard about it.”

“Indeed. . . . . .Who would have thought they could defeat three demons. And one of them being 『Wrath』.”

“Honestly, if it weren’t for the S-class Summoner, the kingdom might have collapsed. . . . . .”

Marie shivered a little, while Faluo swallowed hard.

Oswald, who overheard the conversation, gritted his teeth in anger.

“Damn. . . . . .S-class Summoners.”

Fuming with rage, Oswald dived back into his paperwork.

Classes and regular training have concluded as usual.

Garnet led the class. A few days ago, 『Pope』 Arjan also started teaching. The subjects mainly revolved around summoners from other countries and their history. Arjan’s lessons were interesting, and Albero and the others felt motivated to learn.

In addition to Damocles, Venus also participated in the training.

The training mostly focused on combat simulations using summoned beasts. While facing these two formidable individuals, Albero and the others unknowingly honed their skills.

One day after class, Faluo and Deputy Marie arrived.

“Well, I believe you’ve heard from Garnet-sama, but we will be creating S-class Summoner-specific uniforms, so we need to take some measurements. Also, Albero-kun, you have a meeting regarding the press conference, so please stay in the classroom.”

“. . . . . .Sigh.”

Albero sighed openly. It was evident he found it bothersome.

For measurements, the girls moved to the next classroom, while the boys were measured in their classroom.

After finishing, Kid and Nisrok said,

“Alright, good luck with your press conference preparations. See ya.”

“Bye-bye.”

They left, seemingly in high spirits.

Nisrok seemed a bit clueless, but Kid was blatantly mocking.

Albero sighed again and began his meeting with Faluo.

“Now, at the press conference, I anticipate many questions about you. While you don’t need to answer everything truthfully. . . . . .I generally know what they’ll ask, so let’s organize your responses.”

Faluo pulled out a thick file.

Reluctantly, Albero started considering his answers to Faluo’s questions.

“Hobbies?”

“Uh. . . . . .training?”

“Alright. How about we add reading to emphasize your intellect?”

“I don’t mind reading, so that’s fine.”

“Favorite food?”

“Meat and fish.”

“Hmm. How about we go with Minotaur steak and Dark Fish Meunière?”

“Huh? Is there a reason for that?”

“Hahaha. Let’s just go with it. Favorite subject?”

“. . . . . .History.”

“Okay. That’s fine.”

The informal planning session lasted for an hour.

After the general discussions, Faluo closed the file.

“Well, that should cover it. I’ll deliver a file with the compiled questions later, use it for the press conference.”

“Okay. . . . . .I’m so tired.”

Albero slumped over his desk, exhausted.

Then. . . . . .Faluo said,

“Albero-kun. About your family. . . . . .”

“Yes?”

“The Rushout family received a bounty payment. It’s the reward for your demon subjugation.”

“Reward? I received a barrel full of gold coins, though.”

“Yes, that was just a part. The amount was so large, so the rest was sent to your family home. . . . . .I apologize.”

“. . . . . .Oh.”

Albero understood why Faluo apologized.

While he knew a bounty payment was coming, Albero hadn’t verified the exact amount. He received a barrel full of gold coins at the dormitory, but apparently, that wasn’t the full amount.

“Originally, I intended to talk to you before sending it. . . . . .but teacher Oswald went ahead and gave permission on his own.”

“. . . . . .Huh.”

“I apologize. He still insists that an A-class Summoner is the best.”

“I don’t necessarily think that S-class is the top either.”

“That’s true. . . . . .I’m sorry.”

Probably, the reward money will go to his family’s possession.

By now, a large amount of gold coins has been delivered, and his parents are overjoyed.

“Sigh. . . . . .Excuse me, Teacher Faluo. How can I renounce the Rushout family name?”

“You always ask something extraordinary. . . . . .Well, perhaps if you were granted a territory and given a title.”

“I see.”

“Another way. . . . . .maybe if Albero-kun marries into a noble family?”

“Marrying in. . . . . .”

Albero grunts, “Hmm.”

“I might not put it this way usually, but considering you, you might achieve another feat. When that time comes, why not ask for territory instead of gold coins? Although, it might not be easy to get a large territory.”

“I’ll consider it.”

There are two remaining demons.

『Lust』 is Kid’s target.

“The demon of 『Greed』 . . . . . .Maybe I should defeat it and ask for some territory.”

“Ha, hahaha. You make it sound so simple.”

Albero was serious, but Faluo laughed with a bitter smile.
